Are you man enough?
If you husbands will love your wife as Christ loves the Church, you won't need to raise your voice or hit her, for she will love you so much that she will revere you. God Himself has ordained it: Unto the woman He said, ... your desire shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over thee. (Genesis 3:16b ACP/KJV)

Thank God for Steve,
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
Day 2 of 40,
Last week I got an e-mail from an old and dear friend in Oxford, Maine. He told me that his wife, Mary, had a serious stomach problem. They had operated, sent her home and while home the stitches had burst and red, green and pus came out. Nearly scared Larry to death.
Yesterday the Southern Baptist church we attend here in Albuquerque started a 40 day prayer program for families.
And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and God took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made He a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. (Genesis 2:15-25)
Let's take a minute to look at the term God uses to describe the woman He gave Adam and the way He gave her to him. First notice God didn't make Eve out of dirt as He had man. No, instead He performed the first and most ever successful cloning. God took one of Adams ribs and from it He made the perfect "help meet" for Adam.
To understand why Larry was so upset over the possibility of losing Mary, let's look at "help meet". Awzar, a primitive root that means to surround, i.e. protect or aid:--help, succour.
When God declared that they two should be one, He wasn't saying it as the secular world says it. He was saying that what the man can not do the woman can do, and what the woman can't do the man can do. They are as the right hand and the left hand when working together. Eve was not Adam's equal, she was not made for that, she was the completion of Adam, she was the part that made him complete. For without Eve, Adam could not have had children, could not have had a family, and would have been as a man with one arm trying to button up and zip up a tight pair of pants.
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 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.
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. (Ephesians 5:28-33) Take a minute and go back and read ( Always be on your guard, never let your guard down. )
When a man has a wife that fulfils the role of "help meet", not as Dr. Laura, Dr. Phil and Oprah would define it, but as God has defined it, the very thought of losing that wife is intolerable. Larry's e-mail to me reminded me of the two times I thought Cec was going to die. I have often said that I would not go up on a cross for you. I might for Cecily, but not for any other man, woman or child on earth. I would die for many, but to suffer what Christ suffered for us on the cross, there is but two that I would do that for, Christ and Cecily. And even then I'm not sure I could forebear.
As we start this forty days of looking at, praying for, and pondering God's definitions of and ideals of family, let us not forget: Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?, Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it., and families Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Thank You Jesus for giving us marriage. Thank You Lord for the one you have given to me. Oh Lord God of Creation, I beseech You that You will cause my children to have wives who are "help meet"(s) in Your eyes, not the eyes of the world. Thank You Lord and please Lord, as for Mary, Your will be done my Master, Your will be done. Give Larry and Mary the strength to pray "Your will be done Lord, Your will be done." Amen.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
