It is not just the superiority of weaponry by which wars are won, but it is also through information and intelligence.

Marriage = one of the most significant arenas in life for the demonstration of the grace and love of God in the angelic conflict.

Not only do you have an individual testimony in the Angelic Conflict, but you also have a corporate testimony in your marriage.

a. Love one another as Christ loved the Church, 1JO 3:16; JOH 13:34-35.

There is the mandate to submitting to one another because of your respect of God, EPH 5:21.

Both husband and wife are to be mutually involved in intimacy, EPH 5:33.

The husband and wife are to love each other unconditionally and impersonally.

COL 3:18 Wives, be subject to or respect your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

If you can become objective instead of subjective and look at your marriage as one of the greatest weapons in the most significant arenas in life for the demonstration of the grace and love of God in the angelic conflict.

The information about marriage in the dispensation of the Church-age, also called the mystery age, is some of the greatest forms of intelligence for the defeat of the greatest creature genius and his plot in human history.

PRO 8:14 “Counsel is mine and sound wisdom; I am understanding, power is mine.”
PRO 24:5 “A wise man is strong, And a man of knowledge increases power.”

The spiritual intelligence we have right now concerning the institution of Christian marriage which was once “classified information,” concealed and restricted from both angels and mankind, is what the Bible calls a mystery.

1. EPH 5:25 Husbands, love your wives
2. COL 3:18 Wives, respect your husbands,
3. EPH 4:32 Forgive each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

GEN 5:1 In the day when God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. He created them male and female, and He blessed them and named them Man in the day when they were created.

GEN 2:24 For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.

Referring to the union of man and woman by means of their sexual relationship.

The original divine design of sex in the garden was a type or a preview of something even greater to come in the Church-age concerning the relationship of Christ and His church, His future bride.

Sex was not created originally for procreation but for recreation and enjoyment.

Adam and the woman, Ishshah, could have put any form of clothes they wanted to upon themselves, even fig leaves.

Optimum satisfaction in sex is related to virtue in the soul not sexual athleticism.

It is a generation of self-destructive fools who mock virginity and promote premarital experience as some kind of normal lifestyle and virtue.

ISA 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness [human and Satanic viewpoint] for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Husbands love your wives as Christ loved the Church.
Women submit to your husbands as unto the Lord.
Forgive each other.

God never asks us to do anything that He doesn’t give us the power to accomplish.

Christian marriage is entered into the Angelic Conflict as the third witness.

Jesus Christ became the star witness when He died on the Cross for the sins of the world, winning the strategic victory in the Angelic Conflict.

Winner believers become second witnesses when they reach spiritual maturity and are entered into and pass evidence testing. These become tactical witnesses.

REV 2:13 I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is; and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My faith, even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.

Christian marriage is entered as the third witness when the husband can love His wife and the wife can submit to her husband and they can forgive each other all of which are manifestations of their ability to have impersonal unconditional love.

As Satan attacked the man and the woman in the garden he vehemently attacks Christian marriage in order to destroy the spiritual growth of one or the other.

Each of you are going to face momentum tests, suffering under the law of volitional responsibility, suffering under divine discipline at different times.

Two believers in marriage are like two branches of the vine that intertwine.

If one branch begins to dry up and lose fruit the other branch will be affected, but the other branch can also lend nutrients.

2CO 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort; who comforts us in all our affliction so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

When your wife or your husband fails it’s time to build them up. Our love is a new commandment because we have the filling of the HS and the power of mystery doctrine.
