And they said unto them, We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one that is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach unto us: (Genesis 34:14)
It is not possible was the reply of Simeon and Levi to give our sister to an unbeliever. No matter your offer, no matter the amount of gift you’re offering as a dowry to marry our sister.
We cannot do this thing🙌🏻
My dear sister, any so called guy that comes to you seeking your hand in marriage, but gibing you conditions that you must come to bed with him before he takes you to the altar, your reply should we cannot do this thing. It is not negotiable, it should not be given a second thought. It should not be an option to sleep with me before we get married. No, that is not the standard Jesus set for His children to get married.
For He has said in His word in
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge
My sister tell that young man; imagine God handling the case of sexual immorality. Imagine God telling the angels to leave the judgment of adulterers and fornicators for HIM to judge. It will be so terrible. For Our GOd is a consuming Fire.
He should not beguile you by saying sweet words and sugar quoted verses to justify his action. Whether he is a believer or an unbeliever, my dear flee from Him.
Dinah the daughter of Jacob was raped by an uncircumcised fellow. Now he came to buy her with the proposal of name-your-price dowry. Thinking he can use money to heal the wound of this daughter of Israel. But thank God for the sons of Jacob who knew the implication of marrying an unbeliever. Men who saw many destiny drowned because of a wrong marriage. Marrying one who don’t have an experience with Jesus, one who don’t have a purpose for living, one who don’t understand the matters of eternity, one who has never tasted of the word of GOD. Such person can never marry our sisters.
How can we give our sister to one who is uncircumcised✍🏽
For what business do we have with an uncircumcised fellow. How can light and darkness marry each other, how can a daughter of Zion and a son of Egypt walk together? its not possible. For we are not called to be equally yoked with unbelievers. For that will be a reproach into us
But its so pathetic to see our brothers and sisters today, marry one who is not born again, one whose senses is controlled by the god of this world. They justify their action by saying i will convert them when we get married I pity you.
There are reasons why the Bible warns us not to marry an unbeliever
- They will make us serve other gods
- They will reduce our live and passion for Jesus
- They will quench our light and zeal for the Lord
- They will terminate God’s vision for your life
- They will influence your children in a negative way
- Your going to heaven will be at stake
Your home will be filled with contentions and strife because of different reasonings and thoughts
And also it will be reproach unto us✍✍
May the Lord deliver us from every carnal mindset in Jesus name🔥🙇🏼♂️
Key Learning if you don’t want to regret ever getting married, please don’t marry an unbeliever. Wait on the Lord to bring your spouse.
