Hebrews 13:4 advises us that “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed [where your children are conceived] undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers GOD will judge.” The Biblical and constitutional age of marriage for women is puberty.1 Constitutionally speaking, it is not legal for the federal or state governments to be involved whatsoever in marital affairs! Even Webster’s Dictionary says youth ends at puberty!
Hebrews 13:5 says, “Let your conversation be without covetousness [envy, jealousy]; and be content with such things as ye have: for HE [JESUS, who is GOD, who came to earth in the flesh] hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee [if we never leave HIM or forsake HIM].” Everything with GOD is conditional! In 2 Chronicles 15:2, GOD says through HIS prophet Azariah, “The LORD is with you, while ye be with HIM; and if ye seek HIM, HE will be found of you; but if ye forsake HIM, HE will forsake you.”
Hebrews 13:1 states, “Let brotherly love continue.” This means Christian brotherhood. We are commanded to witness to all who will listen, but are also commanded to not share fellowship with the ungodly. We are to do this, as verse 6 states, “So that we may boldly say, The LORD is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”
Marriage under GOD’S conditions (man and women) is honorable in all (multiple wives, not husbands), and the bed undefiled. Moses, who wrote of Adam and Eve, had three wives.2 GOD’S chosen people to this day are allowed four wives and as many concubines as they are able to support. The man Israel had four wives; others such as Abraham, David, Gideon, and many others had many wives.3 This is law from GOD, not man. This is a private matter for Godly men and women, not an issue for the secular anti-CHRIST government! GOD will judge everyone who opposes HIM (Hebrews 13:4).
Marriage is an extremely serious thing with GOD and GOD’S true children (born-of-the-SPIRIT Christians only). We and we only are the Bride of CHRIST, the New Jerusalem, and soon we will be with HIM, one in body in Heaven!
JESUS gave us many signs of what it will be like just before HE comes back to earth in the end of time. Those of us who follow the LORD, HIS Scriptures, the Word of God (as the wise men), know the time is very near. JESUS says, “So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it [the end of time] is near, even at the doors” (Matthew 24:33).
Marriage is serious because GOD married the first couple, commanding them to be fruitful and multiply, to fill and replenish the earth. We are to fill the earth with children, people. We (the born-again, HOLY SPIRIT-filled church of the redeemed) are the Bride of CHRIST, which is the true church of GOD.
JESUS, in Matthew 25:1 and in many other places, tells us that HE is “THE BRIDEGROOM.” Matthew 25:1 says, “Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps [their Bibles; the WORD of GOD is GOD’S light, the light of the world], and [the ten virgins] went forth to meet [JESUS] the BRIDEGROOM.” All of these ten (virgins) were virgins (saved), but only “five of them were wise,” (feared GOD). The fear of the LORD, the BRIDEGROOM, is wisdom, so fear is wise (Job 28:28)! But “five [of the ten virgins] were foolish. They that were foolish [had no fear of GOD] took their lamps [their Bibles], and took no oil [did not study them, which is SPIRIT and life, did not take the SPIRIT of GOD, the BRIDEGROOM] with them” (Matthew 25:2-3). We must be with the SPIRIT! “Not by might, nor by power, but by MY SPIRIT [are you saved], saith the LORD of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6). James 2:26 says, “As the body without the SPIRIT is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”
The five foolish virgins (which most people today believe are Christians, but they are not; they were Christians but fell away) took NO SPIRIT OF GOD with them. They took only THE WORD OF GOD by the letter (which kills), NOT THE SPIRIT OF GOD, and again THE WORD OF GOD tells us that “the letter killeth, but the SPIRIT giveth life” (2 Corinthians 3:6).
“But the [five] wise [virgins, the five who feared GOD] took oil [the SPIRIT of GOD] in their vessels [in their bodies] with their lamps [the WORD of GOD, which is SPIRIT and life eternal]. While the BRIDEGROOM tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold [Church—Bride of CHRIST], the BRIDEGROOM cometh; go ye out to meet HIM. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps [read and meditated on the Bible]. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil [bring us up to speed as to where your spirits are]; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell [go to others like yourselves, those who only claim to be spiritual and use the Bible for their own whims. They don’t really love the LORD enough to seek HIM all of the time, to always stay in communion with THE BRIDEGROOM so they may let HIM know they love HIM. They want only the benefits of being around Christians—good food, housing, and having all their expenses covered].” Go, foolish virgins, to those who sell the Gospel instead of giving it as it is freely given, “and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the BRIDEGROOM came; and they that were ready went in with HIM to the marriage: and the door was shut” (Matthew 25:4-10). In other words, the end of all things is the MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB! The beginning of the Bible is the marriage between GOD’S SPIRIT in Adam and Eve, which is Adam, the first Adam, and GOD. The first Adam failed by divorcing himself from the marriage by leaving the WORD, the SPIRIT of GOD (the marriage), and disobeying the WORD, which is the SPIRIT of GOD, which again is The Marriage.
“Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, LORD, LORD, open to us. But HE [the BRIDEGROOM] answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the SON of MAN [the BRIDEGROOM] cometh” (Matthew 25:11).
“And the SPIRIT and the bride [of CHRIST, the BRIDEGROOM] say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come [to the marriage of CHRIST]. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life [the HOLY SPIRIT is the water, which is the WORD of GOD, CHRIST (John 1:1, 14)] freely” (Revelation 22:17).
Revelation 21:9 says, “And there came unto me [John] one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee THE BRIDE, THE LAMB'S [THE BRIDEGROOM’S] WIFE.” So it is very plain that Adam and Eve were married to GOD. They fell away from GOD; but GOD, by coming to earth as a man, reconciled man to HIMSELF. GOD marries men and women who are faithful and true to HIM, who will obey HIS every WORD. HE desires a wife who will be eternally faithful to HIM, THE BRIDEGROOM. She is the glory of GOD. We see this in verse 11, “Having the glory of GOD,” and verse 10, “The Holy Jerusalem, descending out of Heaven from GOD.” “And her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper [a diamond] stone, clear as crystal” (Revelation 21:11).
“He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his GOD, and he shall be MY son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Revelation 21:7). The first death is when your natural body dies; the second death is when a soul is, with the body, cast into the Lake of Fire and suffers beyond imagination for eternity. If you don’t have much faith, then pray for faith and read GOD’S WORD, the old King James Version Bible, because “faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the WORD of GOD” (Romans 10:17).
Be saturated with the HOLY SPIRIT, which is the WORD of GOD (Ephesians 6:17). “The WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are life” (John 6:63).
To be initially saved, say this prayer to GOD:
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
After salvation, JESUS said to be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.12 Diligently study the KJV Bible, and do what it says.13

If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will a man rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
