Welcome to For This Reason Marriage Ministries:

We are Pastors Fred & Norma Aguilar and we are so excited to have you be a part of this powerful marriage ministry!  We have made it our mission to help couples to stay in love forever and revive their marriages.  We provide Spirit-filled, Christ-centered training and counseling "couple to couple" in the home.....where God intended His presence to abide as the foundation of our marriages. The Word of God is clear "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh." Gen 2:24

WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY MESSAGE "STANDING ON GODS WORD" - 12/05/2018

Glory to The Lord & Blessings Upon You...

Are You Ready, No Are You Ready? -
 
"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!' Matthew 7:21-23
 
This is Jesus speaking, "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord." Wow!
 
Every day we hear of more and more hate and evilness in every area of the world culture, I feel the need as a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to give this wakeup call! Are You Ready?
 
Why did God decide to use marriage as the very institution to show the great relationship between Him and His Bride (us who believe and have surrendered all). It is the most intimate relationship on this earth and so it is the type of relationship we should have with Jesus!
 
Where are you today in your relationship with the Lord? Is He all of that to you? To the extent you have given all to Him, ALL, yes ALL, what are you holding back?
 
If you are married you have a real learning tool of what intimacy is, and if you are denying your spouse that intimacy, repent and ask the Lord to forgive you. Give yourself fully to your spouse as on to the Lord, hold nothing back, ALL!
 
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." Matthew 7:13-14
 
Please my brother, my sister, this again is Jesus speaking, and He is not talking about life here on earth He is talking about eternal life. "Few find it"!
 
I think back at all that has happened here in the US, from the east coast to the west coast and I wonder what was the condition of those who perished, how many had intimacy with Jesus, how many were on that narrow road....
 
Are you ready?
 
How are you living, is this life all about you and what you want? Or do you fear the Lord and want to live a life wholly completely dedicate to Him?
 
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise." Psalm 111:10
 
Are you ready?
 
Are you doing all that you can to make sure there is not another divorce, especially in the "Body of Christ". Are you living before the Lord the life that He has called us to live before Him, before our spouse (if you are married), before those the Lord has put around us?
 
Yes, please remember the Lord, hears, sees and knows everything. He not only hears your heart but He hears your words! Yes the Lord not only sees your heart He also sees every action, act you take! So the Lord knows your thoughts and your heart before you do or say anything!
 
Repent!
 
"The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, turning a person from the snares of death." Proverbs 14:27
 
No man on earth has the power to separate what God has joined together, marriage is not man's institution; it is God's! Therefore man does not have the power to dissolve what God has put together through the institution of marriage.
 
There are 101 pastors that receive this message every Wednesday. My question to you brothers, sisters what are you doing to make sure those God has brought to you are having intimacy with Jesus, having intimacy with their spouses?
 
"Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:18-20
 
Marriage is a covenant between you, your spouse and God. No matter what your spouse may be doing, God honors the covenant He made with you both. He expects you to do the same. You will have opposition to this call; some of the opposition will come from your own camp.
 
Stop counting numbers, stop counting money and start counting the cost of standing before God and giving account for those in your care. Their Salvation, their Discipleship. Are you investing time with those God has brought your way....
 
Do you know the condition of your flock?
 
"And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul,  and to observe the LORD's commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good?" 
Deuteronomy 10:12-13
 
Yes, Jesus was there in the beginning and was very well aware of God's plans at creation.
 
Then Jesus went on to say, "I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, (or husband), except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman (man) commits adultery."
 
This exception clause has caused much confusion and has aided many in committing a sin that has affected the Body of Christ.
 
First, God does not change His mind. Jesus said, "They are no longer two, but one".  How do you undo what God has done, how do you rip apart God's creation?
 
Second, divorce comes as a result of unforgiveness. Now Jesus said, "But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins."
 
"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:15
 
So when we do not deal with the sin of unforgiveness, we are not helping people into heaven, but in fact sending them to hell.
 
Third, marital unfaithfulness happens in the tent of meeting (the honeymoon room) where the marriage is consummated. There is no marriage until the marriage is consummated through the sexual act. Then the act of marital unfaithfulness happens, and adultery is committed.
 
With this act the one flesh relationship with anyone else is severed.
 
"Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh." 1 Corinthians 6:16.
 
It is not only the sexual act, but the act after words of covenant has been spoken to one another in the presence of God and witnesses. This then is martial unfaithfulness.
 
"It has been said, 'Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.' But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery." Matthew 5:31-33
 
Again, Jesus states the definition of adultery and again, the exception clause that has caused much confusion is seen.
 
In the KJ and the NKJ, "sexual immorality" is used. Again the sexual immorality is the act of sex in the tent of meeting (honeymoon room) after words of covenant are spoken to one another, yet still belonging to another one flesh relationship.
 
Jesus reminds us about oaths that are made to the Lord. There is no greater oath than to become one flesh until death do you part!
 
"The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John. Since that time, the good news of the kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is forcing his way into it. It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law. "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery." Luke 16:16-18
 
Jesus had invested much time teaching and had used many parables from Luke 12:13 to Luke 16:16 and then turned from nowhere when He started to define the Pharisees (Luke 16:14) and what they loved. Jesus went on to state that the Pharisees liked to justify themselves before men. However, God knew their hearts. He told them that what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God. (Luke 16:15)
 
Then Jesus told them about forcing our way with the good news of the kingdom of God, as well as what will disappear and what will remain forever. Then Jesus quickly moved into divorces and marriage out of nowhere and was clear about the definition of adultery (no exceptions). Then He went back to teaching!
 
"Jesus then left that place and went into the region of Judea and across the Jordan. Again crowds of people came to him, and as was his custom, he taught them. Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?"  "What did Moses command you?" he replied.  They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away." "It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law," Jesus replied. "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery." Mark 10:1-12
 
Once again, we hear the words of Jesus and a clear definition of adultery and how that is committed. Note - no exceptions again. We hear again about them becoming one flesh. No longer two, but one, and God joining them together. So let man not separate.
 
Oh my brothers and sisters, it is time, that we come to the Lord and ask that He remove all that is not pleasing to Him, it is not about us, it is ALL about Him!
 
"Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in obedience to him." Psalm 128:1
 
Repent, it is time, allow this day to start your journey with the Lord! IF we confess He is Faithful to forgive!
 
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9
 
NOW GO AND SIN NO MORE!
 
"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."  Ephesians 3:16-19

For This Reason Marriage Ministries has helped countless thousands of married couples by ministering Jesus' reconciling power to the separated, the divorced, the unsaved, broken families and couples that are hurting. The proof of our ministry is in the countless married couples lives we have had the privilege to help and the husbands and wives standing for their marriage today despite their friends, family and even brothers and sisters in the Lord telling them to divorce. Divorce is not the answer and we teach couples how to reconcile, stand and believe that nothing is too great for our GOD and how to be "In Love Forever".

The biblical concept of marriage is that marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman to live together in mutual love and respect for the glory of God, until death do them part.  Marriage is not about us, so it is not about me.  It is about God and His kingdom.  God ordained marriage as the foundational unit of society and everything is built on marriage.  Marriage, done God's way, creates the safest and best environment in which to rear children and covenant principles of marriage are based on steadfast love - looking out for the interest of each other.  They are about seeking to encourage and support each other, throughout life not just when you feel like being in the covenant, because you are "in the covenant" whether you feel like it or not and so we teach to please the Lord with your love, care and commitment to Him and to your spouse.

Thank you for visiting inloveforever.org. It is our sincere desire to bring hope to your marriage situation regardless the circumstances! Below you will find a powerful weekly teaching on covenant marriage done Gods way.

Take a minute to read testimony of couples just like you ........
