Derek Prince (June-10-2020) Sermon: Husbands & Wives.
Bible teacher Derek Prince explains the Biblical covenants and tells us why marriage is a covenant.
Since it's a covenant, Derek points out that adultery is more serious than fornication—it is a broken covenant. The marriage covenant is based on a life laid down (Ps. 50:5) and only valid through death (Heb. 9:16–17).
The husband as well as the wife enter through the sacrifice of Jesus and each lays down his/her life. Each expresses life through the mate—“What will I give?”—not “get”. The ultimate purpose is unity, according to Derek. Each mate makes a commitment (marriage is not an experiment). This commitment releases grace. Eventually, the husband’s success is seen in his wife—the wife’s success is seen in her husband (1Cor. 11:7; Prov. 31:23).
Derek goes on explaining the husband’s responsibilities in marriage:
1. Love (Eph. 5:25)
2. Be head (1 Cor. 11:3)
3. Provide (1 Tim. 5:8)
4. Wash with God’s Word (Eph. 5:26)
5. Nourish and cherish (Eph. 5:29)
After that he explains the wife’s responsibilities in marriage:
1. Helper (Gen. 2:18)
2. To submit (Eph. 5:22)
3. To support/uphold
4. To encourage
Derek concludes by taking the home (or the family) as a model of the Church, that is:
1. Husband—pastor/shepherd (1 Tim. 3:4–5)
3. Children—flock/congregation (Job 21:11)
In addition, husband & wife have a prophetic responsibility: to portray the relationship between Christ and His Church (Eph. 5:22–23, 32). It's God’s original purpose that:
1. Man and woman together to exercise dominion on behalf of God (Gen. 1:27–28)
2. Two harmonizing in prayer are irresistible (Matt. 18:18–20)
3. Two can walk together only in agreement (Amos 3:3)
Where did Cain get his wife? - Frank Turek (September-19-2019). The Bible does not tell you everything about everything.
He Killed His Wife and Children — Can He Really Be Forgiven?
Chris Watts murdered his pregnant wife and two daughters. A few months into his prison sentence, he said he found God. Can he really be forgiven?
A horrifying story out of Colorado has grabbed headlines since it happened in August. It’s a story of a man who killed his family — his wife of six years, their unborn child, along with their two other young daughters. It’s sickening, so sickening a listener named Stephanie wrote us.
“Dear Pastor John, I’m a 33-year-old mother and elementary teacher. My question comes from the recent news that Chris Watts, a Colorado man who killed his pregnant wife and two young daughters, has confessed the details of his crime and been sentenced to five life sentences without the possibility of parole. Now, in these few short months, he has claimed to have ‘found God’ in prison.
“After following the news closely, back when he was originally suspected of this heinous crime, my reaction to his so-called ‘finding God’ was anger. Is it wrong for me to not want this man, who committed unspeakable acts, to know my Jesus? Do you believe someone like him can truly repent and enter the kingdom of God?”
