"...MARRYING AND GIVING IN MARRIAGE...." - Part II

In this Lord's Word Explained Bible study, I will continue to show you the meaning of the phrase, "...Marrying and Giving in Marriage...." - Part II. We find the phrase in the scripture Matt.24:38 - For as the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, "marrying and giving in marriage," until the day that Noe entered into the ark. You can also find a similar phrase in the scripture of Luke 17:26-27 - And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. (27) They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Why did God destroy all of life except those who entered the ark that Noah built?

Learn what the serpent/the dragon does not want you to understand and learn how you can avoid the mark of the beast.

I will show you have been espoused to one husband - the LORD, and that you are not to marry a human, unless you cannot contain yourself, or refrain from lusting or committing fornication. - You will need to read and study the documents "...Marrying and Giving in Marriage...." - Part I; The Spirit Within Us and God's Discipline, also see, The First and Seventh Commandment, in order to have a more clear understanding.

All text taken from the version of the King James Bible

Let us begin this Bible study with a prayer, O God, thy heavenly Father, grant me the wisdom and knowledge, so that I may be able to understand this document, in Jesus name. Amen.

Is.54:5 - For thy Maker [is] thine husband: the LORD of hosts [is] his name: and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called. - see - Rom.3:29.

Now let me continue with scripture for Marrying and Giving in Marriage.

I Cor.7:9-10 - But if they (the people) cannot contain (or, be chaste,) let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn, (or, burn with passion). (10) And unto the married I command, [yet] not I (Paul,) but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from [her] husband: (refer to the definiton for "contain" previously explained)

There are rules and scripture for which the husband and wife can separate, but you can look these up for yourself, see I Cor., chapter 7 for some of the scripture.

In Mark, chapter 10, the Pharisees came and asked Jesus if it was lawful for a man to put away his wife, tempting him (Jesus) - vs.2. You can read vs.3-9 for yourself to see what Jesus told them, I will begin with -

Mark 10:10-12 - And in the house his disciples asked him (Jesus) again the same [matter,] (11) And he (Jesus) saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. (12) And if a woman shall put away her husband and be married to another, she committeth adulter.

Let us take a look at the next scripture in -

Heb.13:4-5 - Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulters God will judge. (5) [Let your] conversation [be] without covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for he (God) hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Remember, I have explained to you that we are espoused to one husband - Jesus Christ. - See - The Spirit Within Us and God's Discipline. The above scripture also applies to those who have married a member of the opposite sex here on earth, but let me explain what this means "spiritually."

When you come to understand and accept that your body is a "living" temple/church, and you are not to defile it - your body, then you will understand what the scriptures are saying. Let us take a look at some scripture -

In I Corinthians, chapter 6, we are told to be followers of Christ and not to make our bodies members of a harlot, our body is a temple of the Holy Ghost [which] is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own and we are to flee fornication. Please read the chapter for yourself.

Let me explain further using scripture -

I Cor.6:16-20 - What? know ye not that he with is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. (17) But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. (18) Flee fornication. Every sin that a man (or, woman) doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication (or, sex) sinneth a gainst his own body. (19) What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? (20) For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's

We are bought with a price. Jesus Christ came and showed us by example the way we were to conduct our lives and he died for us. He paid with his life, because we are to stiffnecked/stubborn to see, hear and understand what the scriptures say. We would much rather hear what the serpent, (snake/viper) told the woman (Eve) way back in Genesis, chapter 3. And for most of us, that is what we still hear - that God would not mind if we disobeyed his commandment.

To this day, most of us still disobey God's commandments -

  1. because we have not been taught what the scriptures really say,
  2. because when we have been told what the scriptures say, we think they are too hard to follow, and
  3. because we would rather follow man's traditions rather than follow God's commandments.

Let me continue to show you that you are a "living" temple, using scripture.

II Cor.6:16-18 - And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. (17) Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing;] and I will receive you (18) And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. See - Temples of God--Churches

Come our from among whom? Come out from those who are stiffnecked/stubborn and would rather follow man's traditions, which was first established in Genesis, chapter 3, when Adam and the woman (Eve) disobeyed God's one and only commandment. See the explanation of the phrase - "against his own body" in, - The First and Seventh Commandment.

We are also told in, Rev.18:4, "...Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." - See - Mark of the Beast--666; Four Sore Judgments

Let me continue explaining"...Marrying and Giving in Marriage...." - Part II, using scripture -

And if you read Ephesians, chapter 5, we are shown that marriage is a symbol of the church, and Christ is the head of the church. And I have explained to you in Temples of God--Churches, that "we" are a church - our bodies and spirit are a church, it is a temple of the Holy Ghost. Let us take a look at the scripture in -

Eph.5:31-33 - For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. (32) This is a great mystery: but I (Paul) speak concerning Christ and the church. (33) Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife [see] that she reverence her husband.

Paul tells the people when they become of age, they are to leave their father and mother and be joined unto his wife (Jesus Christ), in the next verse, Paul explains the mystery, Christ is joined to the church, and we are a church. This is a "spiritual" marriage between Jesus Christ and you, that we are to be one with Jesus Christ, just as Jesus Christ was one with God the Father.

Now let us look at -

I Cor.6:9-10 - Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, (10) Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God

Let me restate, For thy Maker [is] thine husband: the LORD of hosts [is] his name: and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called - Is.54:5, for God has espoused us to one husband, that he may present us as a chaste virgin to Christ - II Cor.11:2

This includes both male and female - Jesus Christ is our husband/wife. And when you marry (another) - you have committed adultery and have broken the seventh and the first commandments. You cannot serve two masters, you cannot divide your attention and serve both equally well, you can either serve the Lord or you can serve yourself (and your human spouse,) but you cannot serve both equally.

Do not forget to keep in mind that you have been espoused to one husband. - See - Is.54:5 and II Cor.11:2.

Continuing with "...Marrying and Giving in Marriage...." - Part II -

I Cor.7:28-31 - But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you. (29) But this I (Paul) say, brethren, the time [is] short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none; (30) And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not; (31) And they that used this world, as not abusing [it:] for the fashion of this world passeth away.

"The fashion of this world passeth away," many or most of the people have a tendency to follow their own hearts (or minds) and desires, that is, they/we do their/our own thing which usually means they/we are doing the "works of the flesh," instead of glorifying God and following the "fruits of the Spirit."

God the Father sent his Son the Lord God, Jesus Christ, born unto a virgin. (Why did God choose of virgin?) Jesus came to show us how to live a righteous life. Yes, Jesus was tempted of the devil in all ways, and Jesus told Satan to "get hence," or get behind him, get away from him, Jesus showed us how it was done, to put sin away from him, he did not use his super Godly powers as he had given these up before he came down to earth. He used only the powers that we (also) possess, and we all have the same power, it is a matter of whether you wish to use it to cast out the evil spirits from our/your own minds - the power to cast out evil spirits. Therefore, those who work diligently to "overcome, conquer" and "gain the victory" over the ways of Satan or the "works of the flesh, " look forward to the resurrection and the return of Jesus Christ, when there will be no sin for a thousand years, during this time, all will follow the commandments of God - all of the commandments - there will be no sin, we will praise and glorify God; Satan will not be able influence or lie to us. At the end of the thousand years, Satan will again be let loose out of the bottomless pit for a short time to see how many will continue to remain faithful to the Lord, those who again follow Satan and his ways - who will not keep the commandments of God, will have their part in the lake of fire - the second death. - See - Four Horses of Revelation for explanation of the words/phrase, "overcome, conquer," and "gain the victory." Also see - Lake of Fire/Furnace of Fire and Brimstone; Judgment, the First Resurrection and the Second Death.

Now let us take a look at the scriptural explanation for the phrase -

the fashion of this world passeth away - I Cor.7:31

Ps.39:6 - Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up [riches,] and knoweth not who shall gather them.

James 4:14 - Whereas ye know not what [shall be] on the morrow. For what [is] your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

I John2:17 - And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Read the above 3 scriptures again, notice what it is saying,

abideth for ever - I John 2:17

Ps. 125:1 - They that trust in the LORD [shall be] as mount Zion [which] cannot be removed, [but] abideth for ever.

Prov.10:25 - As the whirlwind passeth, so [is] the wicked no [more:] but the righteous [is] an everlasting foundation.

I have given you the scripture to show you that it is better not to marry another human, or partake in fornication, but we are to be as the good angels and glorify God. We are not here to give ourselves pleasure, or to find sexual pleasure in one another. Our whole purpose here on earth, is to praise and glorify God the Father through Jesus Christ.

In John 15:1, we see that God the Father is our husbandman - regardless of what sex we are, as there is no difference or gender in heaven - we are all spirits. - See - The True Vine

When Jesus Christ the Son of God/Son of man came to earth, he came to show us the way to live a righteous life. Jesus did not marry a human while he was alive on earth, he remained loyal to his husband, God the Father, he did not come to change one "tittle" of the law - if he had married a human, he would have broken the first and seventh commandments. - See - First and Seventh Commandments

I have heard ministers/pastors/preachers etc. on television telling the people that - everybody should be married there is no greater satisfaction in life than being married and having children, or, marriage between a man and a woman is the greatest institution in the world --WRONG, this is a lie and is the greatest deception. These preachers, pastors or ministers are deceiving you - you have been espoused to the Lord and you are not to marry unless you cannot self-govern yourself, abstain or refrain from fornication or, have difficulty seeing and understanding what is evil and then you are allowed to marry a member of the opposite sex, because it is better to marry than it is to burn with desire - the desire of not doing wrong, but are unable to see or understand what wrong, or evil is. But this does not mean that you are married in the sense that we understand marriage today to a member of the opposite sex, because you are still not to defile your marriage bed.

Ministers/pastors/preachers/priests/rabbi should be teaching you that you have been espoused to the Lord - that he is your husband and you are not to commit adultery or fornication. When you marry a human, you focus more on your spouse (a member of the opposite sex - how you might please that person) and you put the Lord away from you. Ministers/pastors/preachers/priests/rabbi should be teaching you to remain loyal to the Lord - who is your espoused husband. They should be teaching us that we are not to defile our bed. Instead, they allow us to continue to keep man's tradition of marriage without explaining that when we do this we are accepting the mark of the serpent/the devil/the dragon, and that the Lord will no longer be first in our lives, and that we are putting the Lord farther away from us. - See the explanation in Mark of the Beast--666, when Cain put God away from himself.

Accepting the Lord as your husband/wife, is not like we think of husbands (and wives) here on earth as we do today, it is more like an older and more wise "spiritual" entity nurturing a younger "spiritual" entity, helping them to be more the same as the older one. When you think of it this way, it is more easy to visualize spirits entities void of a flesh body, but it is the way God intended us here on earth to be towards one another. You can be a companion for somebody, but without any sexual contact of any kind*. You are to support your companion and help them grow in the ways of the Lord. You are not here to lust after the flesh or to do the works of the flesh - you are not here to please yourself! - that is the way of Satan/the serpent/the devil. - See - John 8:43-44 below.

We are but a vapour, and our spirit returns to the one who gave it when we die/expire. See - The First and Seventh Commandments

Let me show you with the next two scriptures.

Eccl.12:7 - Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

James 4:14 - Whereas ye know not what [shall be] on the morrow. For what [is] your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

*(Unless you cannot contain yourself, in which case it is better to marry than to burn and to render unto your spouse, of the opposite sex, due benevolence. - I Cor.7:3) I have explained the meaning for the words "due benevolence," earlier in this document, please refer back to it, the definition may be in Part I and it surprise you.

Today, we are more focused on ourselves, first, how we may please ourselves more than the Lord. Most of us only think of the Lord once a week or, perhaps only occasionally, when we need him to help us during a difficult time.

Jesus warns us not to be deceived, I am telling you that you are not to marry, but, if you cannot contain yourself, then you are not to defile the marriage bed. We are told over and over again, not to commit fornication, or to flee fornication. It is up to you if you want to see and understand, or whether you would rather continue in the ways and lusts of the devil, because Jesus tell us in -

John 8:43-44 and 47 - Why do ye not understand my speech? [even] because ye cannot hear my word. (44) Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (47) He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear [them} not, because ye are not of God.

the word "he" in the above scriptures is referring to the devil/the serpent/Satan.

Remember: God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and truth.

To lust and commit fornication are the ways of the serpent/devil/Satan/the dragon. The serpent deceived the woman (Eve) in to believing that it was okay to eat of the tree of good and evil, that they would not die and their eyes would be opened and they shall be as gods, knowing good and evil, The serpent indicated to the woman (Eve), that God would not mind, but of course, we know that God did mind, because he was very angry with them when he found out they had disobeyed him..

Disobeying God's commandments is the mark of the beast. Adam and the woman (Eve) disobeyed God's one and only commandment - not to eat of the tree of good and evil - they were to not even touch "it" let they die - a "spiritual" death. They disobeyed God, and were removed from the garden of Eden - a very special place God had made for Adam, and for the woman (Eve) when she was made. They could even hear the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden, that is how special the garden of Eden was at that time, before they disobeyed God.

Let me ask you this question, if you should happen to find yourself falling in love with a member of the opposite sex, omitting the sexual desires, what emotions do you feel towards them?

Do you -

These are some of the things the Lord wants you to feel when you serve only him. He wants you to feel happy inside; he wants you to do nice things for others, this pleases him; and the Lord will walk with you always, if you serve him and not yourself. You need to repent of pleasing yourself and start serving and glorifying the Lord and pleasing him by doing the fruits of the Spirit and keeping the ten commandments - all of them. - See - The True Vine; The First and Seventh Commandment

We are told the Lord's commandments are not grievous - difficult, let us look at the scripture in -

I John 5:3 - For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

Your body is a temple of the Holy Ghost - you are an extention of God the Father. God gave each of us a piece of himself, are you going to abuse it and defile your body/temple?

I know that there are going to be a great many people who are going to be upset and even angry with the information written in this document, but stop and think for a moment - the serpent told the woman (Eve) that it was okay for her and Adam to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil - that God would not mind, but of course that was a deception/a lie because God did mind. Whatever Satan says is okay is going to be the opposite of what God wants us to do. Think about that for a moment. I have explained the tree of the knowledge of the good and evil in - The First and Seventh Commandment.

We know that when God came to visit Adam and the woman (Eve) in the garden of Eden they were hiding in the garden because they were naked and God said who told them they were naked and asked them if they had they eaten the fruit of the forbidden tree. As a result of this, God was very angry and removed them from the Garden of Eden. So if God was angry with Adam and the woman (Eve*) then they must have done something they were not supposed to do - so what did they do that made God so angry as to have them removed from this special garden that God had put them in. - See - First and Seventh Commandments for more explanation. {*most people think they were married by today's standards, but, the woman (Eve) was Adam's "help meet," not sex mate. - See - Mark of the Beast--666, for an explanation of "help meet."}

I have explained the word "naked" in Judgment of the Nations.

The one rule/commandment God gave Adam and the woman (Eve) has not changed to this date. Later God gave Moses the ten commandments, but the commandment that God gave to Adam and the woman (Eve) still remains - God just tried to explain it a bit more, or a bit different. It may look as though there are more rules, but, if we (man) had been following the commandment that God gave Adam and the woman (Eve) there would have been no need for the commandments to be explained more explicitly. If Adam and the woman (Eve) had followed the commandment they had been given, it would be an entirely a different world today - there would be no Satan - there would be no evil, here on earth.

When Adam and the woman (Eve) broke the one and only commandment God gave them, not to eat of the tree of good and evil, but instead listened to the serpent, they accepted the mark of the serpent/devil/dragon/beast. God gave up on Adam and the woman (Eve) because they disobeyed God's one and only commandment to please themselves. Let us look at the scripture in -

Rom. 1:18-24 - For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who hold the truth in unrighteousness; (19) Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. (20) For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: (21) Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. (22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, (23) And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

The words "them" and "their" referrred to in the above scriptrue, is referring to Adam and the woman (Eve).

Remember: You have been espoused to one husband, the Lord - See - Is.54:5

Let me emphasize part of the above scripture in Rom.1:1-24, again so you can understand, the scriptue is referring to Adam and the woman (Eve) and what they did -

In the above scripture, because we became vain in our imaginations, our hearts were darkened, and because we professed ourselves to be wise, we actually became foolish and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God - see what God compared us to? an image made like to corruptible man and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. When we lust, commit adultery or fornication, we have defiled ourselves, filled ourselves with vanity and have lowered ourselves to the ways of the animals

who hold the truth in unrighteousness - Rom.1:18

Job 24:13 They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof,

God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts - Rom.1:24

Ps.81:12 - So I (the LORD) gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: [and] they walked in their own counsels.

I Thes.2:11 - And for this cause God shall send them strong delusions, that they should believe a lie:

Also read Acts 7:42, you can read all of Acts chapter 7 for yourself.

God is sending us strong delusions, it is up to you to see, hear and understand what the scriptures are saying and to conquer, overcome and gain the victory over the works of the flesh and keep the commandments of God - all of them and do the fruits of the Spirit. It is up to you to self-govern yourself. If you cannot refrain from doing the works of the flesh and self-govern or, discipline yourself today, how do you expect to rule and reign with the Lord Jesus when he returns. - See - Heir and Joint-Heir With Christ

to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: - Rom.1:24

I Cor.6:18 - Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

I Peter 4:3 - For the time past of [our] life suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

The Lord has given up on most of us because we have become vain and dishonoured our bodies between ourselves, we have not kept ourselves for the Lord only.

In this next scripture, John is relating the information he is being given in -

Rev.18:4 - And I (John) heard another voice from heaven, saying Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. - See - Four Sore Judgments

The "sins" referred to here are the ways of the world - the works of the flesh. It is up to you conquer, overcome and to gain the victory over the works of the flesh. You have the power to say "no," you have the power to change, or, to walk away from sin - you have the power to cast Satan out of your life, - but will you do it?

However, having given you all of this information, let me also give you the following scripture to contemplate.

Matt19:12 - For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from [their] mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive [it], let him receive [it].

Let me give you the definition for the word -

#2134 eunuchs - N.T. - from #2135 - AV - make eunuch - 1) to castrate, to neuter a man; 2) metaph. to make one's self a eunuch i.e. by abstaining (like a eunuch from marriage)

from #2135 - from eune (a bed) and #2192 - AV - eunuch - 1) a bed keeper, bed guard, superintendent of the bedchamber, chamberlain; 1a) in the palace of oriental monarchs who support numerous wives and superintendent of the women's apartment or harem, an office held by eunuchs; 1b) an emasculated man, a eunuch; 1.1) eunuchs in oriental courts held by other offices of greater, held by the Ethiopian eunuch mentioned in Acts 8:27-39; 1c) one naturally incapacitated; 1.1c1) for marriage; 1.1c2) begetting children 1d) one who voluntarily abstains from marriage

from eune (a bed) and #2192 - including an alternate form scheo {skheh'-o}, used in certain tenses - AV - have, be, need + 5532, have - 1) to have, i.e. to hold; 1a) to have (hold) in the hand, in the sense of wearing, to have (hold) possession of the mind (refer to alarm, agitating emotion, etc.), to hold fast keep, to have or comprise or involve, to regard or consider or hold as; 2) to have i.e. own, possess; 2a) external things such as pertain to property or riches or furniture or utensils or goods or food etc.; 2b) used of those joined to anyone by the bonds of natural blood or marriage or friendship or duty or law etc, of attendance or companionship 3) to hold one's self or find one's self so and so, to be in such or such a condition; 4) to hold one's self to a thing, to lay hold of a thing, to adhere or cling to; 4a) to be closely to a person or thing

So, there are different types of eunuchs (people) - there are those who are born to abstain from marriage and sexual contact with a member of the opposite sex and have made themselves eunuch (men/people) for the kingdom of heaven's sake, and then there are those who who are not, see the definition above as well as Matt.19:22.

In the next scripture, we will see that people have been predestinated by God, let us take a look at -

Rom.8:29-30 - For whom he (God) did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. (30) Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Let me give you the definition for -

#4309 did predestinate - N.T. - from #4253 and #3724 - AV - predestinate, determine before, ordain - 1) to predetermine, decide beforehand; 2) in the NT of God decreeing from eternity; 3) to foreordain, appoint beforehand

from #4253 - a primary preposition - AV - before, above, above ... ago, or ever - 1) before

from #3724 - from #3725 - AV - determine, ordain, as it was determined + 2596 + 3588, declar, limit, determine - 1) to define; 1a) to mark out the boundaries or limits (of any place or thing); 1a.1b) to determine, appoint; 1a.1b1) that which has been determined, acc. to appointment, decree; 1a.1b2) to ordain, determine, appoint

from #3725 - from a derivative of an apparently primary horos (a bound or linit) - AV - coast, border - 1) boundaries; 1a) for a region, district, land, territory

God decided before you were born, what role you would take here on earth, but that does not mean that you cannot change if you have not been chosen to abstain from marriage and sexual contact with a member of the opposite sex and make themselves eunuch (men/people) for the kingdom of heaven's sake. You can see form the next scripture there are some to have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

In Revelation 7:14, we find John talking to one of the elders in the spirit, telling John that a great number of people have come out of the great tribulation having washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. So you can repent of man's traditions and change from what has been predetermined before you were born if you are determined to do so, but it is entirely up to you whether you want to be a part of the kingdom of heaven, and rule with Jesus Christ as a king or priest when Jesus returns to earth. - See - Heir and Joint-Heir With Christ

I expect there will be a great many people who will be upset or angry with the information in this document because I have told you it is better not to marry and committing fornication and/or adultery is a transgression of the law. However, the scriptures also tell us that we have been predestinated to what our role will be here on earth before we were even born, but that we can change our destiny if we repent of man's traditions and deep the commandments of God - all of them. I give you this information so you will be more able to understand your Bible, however, it may not give you all the answers, you will need to study your Bible as well as read other documents, but let no one deceive you, prove all things; hold fast that which is good, because, ultimately, you, are responsible for your own salvation.. It is up to you if you wish to accept the information or reject it and continue following your own ways.

REMEMBER: You are responsible for your own salvation. Phil.2:12 - See - The True Vine - for a list of the works of the flesh.
