Interesting Facts You Need To Know About Love, Flirtation, Marriage, Monogamy And Affection – The Vintage Woman.



Love


The attraction of the sexes for each other, though based upon the dual principle of generation which pervades the living world and which has its analogies in the attractive forces of matter, yet pervades the whole being.


Love is not merely the instinctive desire of physical union, which has for its object the continuation of the species—it belongs to the mind as well as to the body. It warms, invigorates, and elevates every sentiment, every feeling; and in its highest, purest, most diffusive form unites us to God and all creatures in Him.


All love is essentially the same, but modified according to its objects and by the character of the one who loves. The love of children for their parents, of parents for offspring, brotherly and sisterly love, the love of friendship, of charity, and the fervor of religious love, are modifications of the same sentiment—the attraction that draws us to our kindred, our kind; that binds together all races and humanity itself, resting on the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man.


It is but natural that this love should vary in degrees. Attractions are proportional to proximity. Family is nearer than country; we prefer our own nation to the rest of the race.


Each individual has, also, his own special attractions and repulsions. There is love at first sight and friendship at first sight. We feel some persons pleasant to us; to be near them is a delight. Generally such feelings are mutual—like flows to like, or as often, perhaps, differences fit into each other. We seek sympathy with our own tastes and habits, or we find in others what we lack.


Thus the weak rest upon the strong, the timid are fond of the courageous, the reckless seek guidance of the prudent, and so on. The sentiment of love for the opposite sex —tender, romantic, passionate—begins very early in life. Fathers and daughters, mothers and sons, have a special fondness for each other, as, also, have brothers and sisters; but the boy soon comes to admire someone, generally older than himself, who is not a relation.


Very little girls find a hero in some friend of an elder brother. Fondness for cousins generally comes more from opportunity than natural attraction, though a cousin may have very little appearance of family relation. The law appears to be that free choice seeks the diverse and distant. A stranger has always a better chance with the young ladies of any district than the young men with whom they have always been acquainted. Savages seek their wives out of their own tribe.


It is my belief that naturally (I mean in a state of pure and unperverted nature, but developed cultivated, and refined by education) every man loves womanhood itself, and all women so far as they approximate to his ideal; and that in the same way every woman loves manhood, and is attracted and charmed by all its gentle, noble, and heroic manifestations.


By such a man, every woman he meets is reverenced as a mother, sister, daughter, or, it may be, cherished in a more tender relation, which should be at first, and may always remain, free from any sensual desire.


Such love may have many objects, each attracting the kind and degree of affection which it is able to inspire. Such love of men for women, and women for men, may be free and will be free just in the degree in which it is freed from the bondage of sensual passion.


Such love has a direct tendency to raise men above the control of their senses. The more of such love one has and the more it is diffused, the less the liability to sink into the lower and disorderly loves of the sensual life.


The idea that every attraction, every attachment, every love between the sexes must lead to marriage—that no love can be tolerated but with that end in view—is a very false and mischievous one. It deprives men and women of the strength and happiness they might have in pure friendships and pure loves, and it leads to a multitude of false and bad marriages.


Two persons are drawn together by strong attractions and tender sentiments for each other who have no more right to be married than if they were brother and sister, but who have the same right to love each other. But their true sentiments for each other, and consequent relation to each other, are not understood by those around them and perhaps not by themselves.


They are urged by the misapprehension of others, by their expectation, by ignorant gossip, by the prejudice of society, based upon low and sensual estimates of life, to marry; they find that they must either marry or lose the happiness they have in each other’s society, and they make the irrevocable mistake.


When it is understood that there are other loves than that of marriage; when the special attraction that justifies union for life, and the begetting of offspring, is discriminated from all the other attractions that may bring two souls into very near and tender relations to each other, there will be more happiness in the world and fewer incomplete, imperfect, and, therefore, more or less unhappy, marriages.



Flirtation



Nothing can be more detestable than that playing with fire which goes by the name of flirtation but there are men and women who have the happiness of living and of being tenderly and devotedly loved by persons of the opposite sex—loved purely, nobly, happily—without injury and with great good.


When such loves are accompanied by perfect trust in the goodness, purity, truth, and honor of the beloved, there can be no jealousy, no desire for selfish absorption, no fear of deprivation of any right. There is no reason why a husband or a wife should limit the range of pure and spiritual affection to near relatives.


The man who can love a sister as sisters are often loved, may love in the same way, or as purely, any woman who might be his sister. As men and women learn to purify their lives, the world will grow more tolerant and love will become more universal.


The tender and fervent exhortations to mutual love to be found in the Gospels and Epistles of the New Testament are now almost without a meaning. But they had a meaning to those to whom they were addressed, and when we are better Christians, and bring our lives to the purity of Christian morality, they will have a meaning to us and we shall learn that, in a sense we have not dreamed of, God is Love.



Monogamy



In the human race all circumstances point to monogamy as the lawful or natural condition. Males and females are born in almost equal numbers. If there are two or three per cent. more of males than females, the risks of life with males soon make the number even. Therefore, as a rule, no man can have more than one wife without robbing his neighbor.


Polygamy is therefore a manifest injustice, and may become the most grievous of all monopolies.


Children are the most helpless of all young creatures and require the care of parents for the longest period. The care of a husband for his wife, and of a father for his child, is an evident necessity. The proper care and education of a single child should extend over at least fifteen years, and that of a family may reach to thirty years, or throughout the greatest part of an ordinary life.


During all periods of pregnancy, childbearing, nursing, and the education and care of a family, every woman has a right to the sympathy, sustaining love, and constant aid of her husband. No man has a right to desert or leave helpless, or even dependent upon others, except in extraordinary cases, the mother of his children.



Marriage



Marriage, like celibacy, should be a matter of vocation. The special object of marriage is to have children; the co-operating motive is that two persons drawn to each other by a mutual affection may live helpfully and happily together.


A selfish marriage, for its merely animal gratifications—a marriage in which strength, health, usefulness, often life itself, are sacrificed to sensuality and lust—is a desecration of a holy institution, and somewhat worse in its consequences than promiscuous profligacy, for the consequences of that may not fall upon one’s children and posterity.


There are many persons who have no right to marry. There should be a kind and amount of love that will justify and sanctify such a relation. There should be a pure motive and the fixed intention of making the relation what it ought to be to husband, wife, and children.


There should be a reasonable assurance of the power to provide for a family. There should be that amount of health, that freedom from bodily and mental disease, that physical and moral constitution which will give a reasonable prospect of children whose lives will be a blessing to themselves and to society.


When there is deformity of body, or an unhappy peculiarity of temper or mind liable to be inherited, people should not marry, or if they live together, should resign the uses of marriage. People should conscientiously refrain from propagating hereditary diseases. Persons near of kin are wisely forbidden to marry, for there is in such cases the liability of imperfect generation—the production of blind, deaf, idiotic or insane offspring.



Should marriage be for life?


As a rule, undoubtedly. Every real, proper, true marriage must be. It takes a lifetime for a husband and wife to make a home and rear and educate and provide for a family of children. But what if people make mistakes and find that they are not suitably married?


These are mistakes very difficult to remedy. If a man, after deliberately making his choice of a woman, ceases to love her, how can he honorably withdraw from his relation to her, and enter upon another, when she still loves him, and is ready to fulfill her part of the contract?


Laws cannot very well provide for mistakes. If the distaste for each other be mutual, and both parties desire to separate, a separation may of course be permitted; but it is a serious question whether two such persons can go into the world and find new partners, with justice to the rest.


The law which permits of no divorce certainly bears hard upon individual cases; but if it leads to greater seriousness and care in forming such relations, it may be, on the whole, the best thing for society that it should be strictly observed.

Sex Makes Marriage Better | Spicing Up Marital Intimacy And Sexual Intercourse – The Vintage Woman.



Sexual Intercourse, its laws and conditions, it’s use and abuse.


There is an increasing and alarming prevalence of nervous ailments and complicated disorders that could be traced to have their sole origin from this source. Hypochondria, in its various phases, results from the premature and unnatural waste of the seminal fluid.


Then speedily ensues a lack of natural heat, a deficiency of vital power, and consequently indigestion, melancholy, languor, and dejection ensue; the victim becomes enervated and spiritless, loses the very attributes of man, and premature old age soon follows.





It is a prevalent error that it is necessary for the semen to be ejected at certain times from the body; that its retention is incompatible with sound health and vigor of body and mind. This is a very fallacious idea. The seminal fluid is too precious—nature bestows too much care in its elaboration for it to be wasted in this unproductive manner.



It is intended, when not used for the purpose of procreation, to be reabsorbed again into the system, giving vigor of body, elasticity and strength to the mind, making the individual strong, active, and self-reliant. When kept as nature intended, it is a perpetual fountain of life and energy—a vital force which acts in every direction, a motive power which infuses manhood into every organ of the brain and every fiber of the body.


The law of sexual morality for childhood is one of utter negation of sex. Every child should be kept pure and free from amative excitement and the least amative indulgence, which is unnatural and doubly hurtful.


No language is strong enough to express the evils of amative excitement and unnatural indulgence before the age of puberty; and the dangers are so great that I see no way so safe as thorough instruction regarding them at the earliest age. A child may be taught, simply as a matter of science, as one learns botany, all that is needful to know, and such knowledge may protect it from the most terrible evils.


The law for childhood is perfect purity, which cannot be too carefully guarded and protected by parents, teachers, and all caretakers. The law for youth is perfect continence—a pure vestalate alike in both sexes. No indulgence is required by one more than the other—for both nature has made the same provision. The natures of both are alike, and any—the least—exercise of the amative function is an injury to one as to the other.


Men expect that women shall come to them in marriage chaste and pure from the least defilement. Women have a right to expect the same of their husbands. Here the sexes are upon a perfect equality.


On this subject, Dr. Carpenter (physiological works) has written like a man of true science, and, therefore, of true morality. He lays it down as an axiom that the development of the individual and the reproduction of the species stand in an inverse ratio to each other.


He says: “The augmented development of the generative organs at puberty can only be rightly regarded as preparatory to the exercise of the organs. The development of the individual must be completed before the procreative power can properly be exercised for the continuance of the race.”


And in the following extract from his “Principles of Human Physiology,” he confirms my statement respecting the unscientific and libertine advice of too many physicians: “The author would say to those of his younger readers who urge the wants of nature as an excuse for the illicit gratification of the sexual passions, ‘try the effects of close mental application to some of those ennobling pursuits to which your profession introduces you, in combination with vigorous bodily exercise, before you assert that appetite is unrestrainable and act upon that assertion.’





Nothing tends so much to increase the desire as the continual direction of the mind toward the objects of its gratification, whilst nothing so effectually represses it as a determined exercise of the mental faculties upon other objects and the expenditure of nervous energy in other channels.


Some works which have issued from the medical press contain much that is calculated to excite, rather than to repress, the propensity; and the advice sometimes given by practitioners to their patients is immoral as well as unscientific.”


Every man and every woman, living simply, purely, and temperately—respecting the laws of health in regard to air, food, dress, exercise, and habits of life—not only can live in the continence of a pure virgin life when single, and in the chastity which should be observed by all married partners, but be stronger, happier, and in every way better by so living.


Chastity is the conservation of life, and the consecration of its forces to the highest use. Sensuality is the waste of life, and the degradation of its forces to pleasure divorced from use. Chastity is life; sensuality is death.


From the age of puberty to marriage, the law, is the same for both sexes—full employment of mind and body, temperance, purity, and perfect chastity in thought, word, and deed. The law is one of perfect equality. There is no license for the male which is not equally the right of the female.


There is no physiological ground for any indulgence in one case more than in the other. No man has any more right to require or expect purity in the woman who is to be his wife than the woman has to require and expect purity in her husband. It is a simple matter of justice and right.


No man can enter upon an amative relation with a woman, except in marriage, without manifest injustice to his future wife, unless he allow her the same liberty; and also without a great wrong to the woman, and to her possible husband.


It is contended that the sins of men against chastity are more venial than those of women, because of the liability of women to have children. But men are also liable to be the fathers of children, who are deeply wronged by the absence of paternal care.


The child has its rights, and every child has the right to be born in honest, respectable wedlock, of parents able to give it a sound constitution and the nurture and education it requires. The child who lacks these conditions is grievously wronged by both father and mother.


The law of marriage is, that a mature man and woman, with sound health, pure lives, and a reasonable prospect of comfortably educating a family, when drawn to each other by the attraction of mutual love, should chastely and temperately unite for offspring. The sexual relation has this chief and controlling purpose.


The law of nature is intercourse for reproduction. Under the Christian law, marriage is the symbol of the union of Christ with the Church; husband and wife are one in the Lord; they are to live in marriage chastity, not in lust and uncleanness; and there cannot be a more hideous violation of Christian morals than for a husband to vent his sensuality upon a feeble wife; against her wishes and when she has no desire for offspring and no power to give them the healthy constitutions and maternal care which is their right.





The law of Christian morality is very clear. It is the sexual union first and chiefly for its principal object. It is for the husband to refrain from it whenever it is not desired; whenever it would be hurtful to either; whenever it would be a waste of life; whenever it would injure mother or child, as during pregnancy and lactation.


A man who truly loves a woman must respect and reverence her, and cannot make her the victim of his inordinate and unbridled, selfish and sensual nature.


He will be ever, from the first moment of joyful possession to the last of his life, tender, delicate, considerate, deferent, yielding to her slightest wishes in the domain of love, and never encroaching, never trespassing upon, never victimizing the wife of his bosom and the mother of his babes. We have romance before marriage, we want more chivalry in marriage.


This is not the world’s morality, yet it seems to one the world must respect it. This, high and pure Christian morality is not always enforced by Christian ministers, some of whom yield too much to human sensuality and depravity, instead of maintaining the higher law of Christian purity, which is but nature restored or freed from its stains of sin.


The world requires that unmarried women should be chaste, while it gives almost unbridled license to men. A girl detected in amours is disgraced and often made an outcast. In young men such irregularities are freely tolerated.





They are “a little wild”; they “sow their wild oats”; but open profligacy, the seduction of innocence, the ruin of poor girls, adultery, harlotry and its diseases do not hinder men from marrying, nor from requiring that those they marry should have spotless reputations.


It is not for a moment permitted that women in these matters should behave like men, and a pure girl is given to the arms of a wasted debauchee, and her babes are perhaps born dead, or suffer through life with syphilitic diseases, while she endures a long martyrdom from disordered, diseased, and unrestrained sensuality.


For the unmarried, young men, soldiers, sailors, and all who do not choose to bear the burdens of a family, society has its armies of prostitutes—women like others, and more than others, or in less reputable fashion, the victims of the unbridled lust of men. They are everywhere tolerated as


Necessary evils and, in some places, protected or regulated; and, from economical or philanthropic considerations, or both, combined efforts are made to free them from the contagious diseases which for some centuries have been a curse attending this form of the violation of the laws of nature—one of the consequences of lust which is the divorce of the sexual instinct from its natural use and purpose.





The christian law of marriage as set down in the Holy Scriptures, and defined by the best writers on moral theology, is in harmony with nature, in consonance with the higher nature of man. “God hath set the earth in families.”


Adultery is a sin, because it disorders that divine arrangement. Fornication is a sin, because it prevents pure marriages. Prostitution is a sin, because it is a sacrifice of women, who might be wives and mothers, to the selfish lusts of men. All useless indulgence is a waste of life, and a kind of suicide.


In a pure marriage union, men and women unite themselves with God in acts of creative power. The progress of humanity depends upon individual development and the conditions at generation and gestation. With culture and a harmonized development, we acquire a higher and more integral life. When two parents are in their highest condition and in


A true union with each other, the child combines the best qualities of both parents. When parents are not in the unity of a mutual love, the child may be inferior to either parent. The intensity of mutual love tends to the reproduction [of the best faculties of both parents in the child. When men or women are exhausted or diseased the race deteriorates. Health is therefore one of the conditions of progress.


“It is all very fine,” I shall be told, “to talk of purity and chastity; but we must take men as they are. How are you going to make men pure and chaste, and respectful of the purity of women? How can you get men with strong amative propensities to live like anchorites?”


How can you get men to do anything right, or refrain from any wrong thing? There are three motives—fear of punishment, hope of reward, and sense of right or the principle of duty.


The first of these is the lowest, but often the most effectual; the second is higher, and appeals to hope and the love of happiness; the third, the highest of all motives, pure and unselfish as the love of truth, as in mathematics, acts on noble minds with great power.





Men of real conscientiousness love the right for its own sake. They are just from love of justice; pure from a sense and love of purity. They love good, and God as the source of all good; and do right, not from fear or hope, but from pure love.


We must appeal to all motives. Men refrain from theft and other dishonest conduct from the dread of disgrace and punishment, because they see that “honesty is the best policy,” and from a sense of justice and regard to the rights of property, or a sense of honor which makes a mean action impossible.


By similar motives great numbers are restrained from drunkenness and other vices. Children are to be restrained from impurity by the fear of the terrible consequences of unnatural indulgence in causing disease and pain, by the hope of a pure, healthy and happy life of love in manhood and womanhood, and by a sense of the beauty and holiness of chastity and the sacredness of the functions by which the race is recreated and preserved.


The religious feelings that our bodies are to be kept pure, healthy, and holy in every way as the temples of the Holy Ghost cannot be too early instilled into the infant mind, which is open to the highest sentiments of veneration, devotion, and heroic religion. In youth there are the same motives. Indulgence in solitary vice is self-destructive of all that youth most values—a profanation of his own body.



Seduction



Is a desecration of what he should hold in the most tender reverence. To the young man, womanhood should be sacred, and every woman, mother, sister, beloved of the present or the future, should never be wronged by one thought of impurity.


In this matter instinct goes with right. The inward voice supports the outer law of morality. Before men can become bad, their instinctive modesty must be broken down. Unless very badly born, with disordered amativeness, hereditary from a diseased and lustful parentage, they must be perverted and corrupted before they can act immodestly and impurely.


Women are protected by a strong public sentiment around them. They have the dread of disgrace. For them to yield to their own affectionate desires, or the solicitations of a lover, is a fall, is ruin. They have the hope of a loving husband, a happy home, and the respect of society.


And in woman passion has commonly less force, and the sentiment of modesty and purity more power. Women are weak in yielding to solicitation, giving everything for love; but we see how protective of female virtue are these motives to vast numbers.


Men can perfectly restrain the sensual part of their natures whenever they have a strong motive to do so. A child would be simply mad who was not controlled by the presence of father, mother, and persons he respected or feared. Young men have no difficulty when they are in the company of pure women.


They are in no trouble when their lives are full of mental and muscular activity, and particularly if their habits of eating simply and temperately, of refraining from heating and exciting stimulants, and sleeping in cold beds and fresh air, are such as health requires.





There needs but the strong will to live purely in any one, and at any age, the will that comes from the high motives of conscience and religion, or all motives combined. A strong sense of what is just and right controls even the motions of our bodies and actions which seem to be involuntary.


A man who has a vivid sense of the right and duty of refraining from sensuality, and preserving his own purity of mind and body and the chastity of all women, will do so even in his dreams. When the will is right, all things are soon brought into its subjection. The mind controls the organization, and the life forces are directed into other channels.


A strong man, full of life and love can safely hold a virgin in his arms, and respect her virginity, if he have but the motives and the will to do so. If he be pure in his will, how can he commit impurity? If a woman be sacred in his eyes, how can he profane her?


It is not that men have not the power of restraint, the power to do right; it is that they lack the motive. They have lost the sense of right; they are even impelled to do wrong by the pressure of opinion around them. Boys and young men are driven into libertinage by the ridicule of their companions. Vice is considered manly.





They seek sensuality in an evil emulation, as they learn to smoke, or gamble, or drink; and, later on, vanity has often more to do with excess than the force of lust. Young men seduce girls that they may boast of it. They keep mistresses because it is the fashion.


They exhaust themselves because they wish to give a high idea of their manly powers. Even in marriage, women are injured and have their health destroyed by yielding weakly, or from a false sense of duty to a husband whose own motive is the desire to acquit himself manfully in what he considers his marital duties.


Men and women are, in thousands of cases, wretched victims to what they imagine to be the wants or expectations of each other. A man, ignorant of the nature of women and the laws of the generative function, goes on in a process of miserable exhaustion, to please his wife.


She submits, sometimes in pain, often in disgust, weariness, and weakness, to what she dare not, from love or fear, refuse. Men have to know what is right and to will to be right. This will is omnipotent. God helps those who have the will, who have even the desire, to do right.


If the presence of those we fear or reverence, respect or love, restrain us from sin and stimulate us to right action, faith in the existence and presence of God and angels, and the spirits of the departed, must have a more powerful and pervading influence.


No one who really believes in the existence of a Supreme Being, no one who is strongly impressed with the reality of a spiritual life, can go on doing what he knows to be wrong. A religious faith is therefore the most powerful of all restraints from evil and incitement to good.

What Makes A Happy And Healthy Marriage – The Vintage Woman.



The basis of a happy marriage.


The state of conjugal union should be the happiest in the whole of the existence of either man or woman, and is such in a congenial marriage. Yet in the history of very many marriages contentment or happiness is palpably absent and an almost insufferable misery is the heritage of both parties.



It is therefore important that previous to the marital union the parties should take everything into consideration that fore-shadows happiness after marriage, as well as everything calculated to despoil conjugal felicity.





The first requisite of congenial marriage is love.



Without being cemented by this element the conjugal union is sure to be uncongenial. It is the strongest bond, the firmest cord, uniting two hearts inseparably together. Love for the opposite sex has always been a controlling influence with mankind.



It is the most elevating of all the emotions and the purest and tenderest of all sentiments. It exerts a wonderful power, and by its influence the grandest human actions have been achieved. Of what infinite worth it is to either sex to be compensated with a worthy and satisfying love, and how ennobling to the impulses and actions it is to bestow the sentiment upon one worthy to receive and willing to return.



Love is the mainspring that regulates the harmony of conjugal life, and without it there is a void in the machinery, productive only of jars, convulsive movement, and a grating and inharmonious action.



The soul yearns for love and to love, and unless the desire is compensated human life is a blank and becomes a purposeless existence. Love ever stimulates the good and suppresses the bad, if kept in a proper channel and guided by pure affections.





Another requisite of a happy marriage is health.



No person has a moral right to engage in wedlock who cannot bring to his partner the offering of good health.



Another consideration is evenness of temper.



In the wooing days everyone is a lamb, and only becomes the howling wolf after marriage. Circumstances that ruffle the temper in the presence of the intended are but like the harmless squib, but would become like the explosive torpedo in his or her absence or in after-marriage.



Quarreling caused by matrimonial differences is the most frequent cause of infelicity, and most of it is caused by an innate irate temper of either husband or wife.





The tastes should not be dissimilar. Some of them may be unimportant, but others are a fruitful source of disagreement. The social wife will never be contented with the unsocial husband, and the gay husband, though his gayety may not be commendable, will always accuse his wife if she lacks a social disposition to a great extent.



The religious wife will never excuse a tendency to irreligion in her husband, and though he may be far from being immoral, she is unhappy if he does not participate in her devotions. The one devoted to children will never be happy with one having a natural repugnance for them.



In this way we might multiply facts illustrative of the importance of an investigation into the similarity of taste previous to marriage. Great love, however, overcomes almost every obstacle.





The parties should be nearly of one age. The husband should be the elder. The union of the old husband to the young wife, or the reverse, is seldom a happy one. It is seldom that such a marriage occurs in which the incentive is not the wealth of either of the parties. [This requisite is not set in stone and some people have been known to have happy marriages despite differences in age].




Marriages are usually contracted to gratify various desires, as love, fortune or position. The results are more truthfully stated by an eminent divine in the following:



“Who marries for love, takes a wife; who marries for fortune, takes a mistress; who marries for position, takes a lady.” To a man there is but one choice that he can rationally make, a marriage of love. My female readers, I hope, will decide rather to wed a husband than the master or the elegant gentleman.



A little foresight, a little prudence, and a little caution will prevent in most cases the entrance into a marriage which, by the very nature of the alliance, is certain to be an unhappy and improper one.

Common Wedding And Marriage Traditions And Customs From Various Cultures In History – The Vintage Woman.



It would probably be interesting to many to describe the marriage ceremonies observed by different nations, but to enter into a descriptive detail would occupy too much space. It is sufficient to say that while some wives are wooed and won, others are bought and sold; while in some countries the husband brings the wife to his home, in others, as in Formosa, the daughter brings her husband to her father’s house, and he is considered one of the family, while the sons, upon marriage, leave the family forever.



In civilized countries, the ceremonies are either ministerial or magisterial, and are more or less religious in character; while in others, less civilized, the gaining of a wife depends upon a foot-race, in which the female has the start of one-third the distance of the course, as is the custom in Lapland.



In Caffraria, the lover must first fight himself into the affections of his ladylove, and if he defeats all his rivals she becomes his wife without further ceremony. Among the Congo tribes, a wife is taken upon trial for a year, and if not suited to the standard of taste of the husband, he returns her to her patents.



In Persia, the wife’s status depends upon her fruitfulness; if she be barren, she can be put aside. In the same country they have also permanent marriages and marriages for a certain period only—the latter never allowed to exceed ninety years.



In fact, the marriage ceremonies differ in nearly all countries. To us some may appear very absurd, and yet our customs may be just as amazing to them. It matters but little how a conjugal union is effected so long as sanctioned by law or custom and it obligates the parties, by common opinion, to observe the duties pertaining to married life.

What You Need To Know About Cohabitation And Marriage From Various Cultures And Times In History - The Vintage Woman Blog Post Banner Image

What You Need To Know About Cohabitation And Marriage From Various Cultures And Times In History – The Vintage Woman.



Marriage is in law the conjugal union of man with woman, and is the only state in which cohabitation is considered proper and irreprehensible. The marriage relation exists in all Christian communities, and is considered the most solemn of contracts, and, excepting in Protestant countries, it is regarded as a sacrament.



In some countries its celebration falls under the cognizance of ecclesiastical courts only, but in the United States it is regarded as merely a civil contract, magistrates having, equally with clergymen, the right to solemnize it, though it is usually the practice to have it performed by a clergyman and attended with religious ceremonies.



Marriage, as a legalized custom, is of very ancient origin. It is doubtful whether even the primitive man was not governed in the intercourse of the sexes by some recognition of the union being confined to one chosen one. No greater promiscuity can certainly be supposed than occurs in the lower animals, where pairing is the law.



The nobler animals, as the lion, elephant, etc., never have but one mate, and even in case of death do not remate. As men advanced, civil codes were inaugurated and certain protection given to the choice of the parties. The earliest civil code regulating marriage, of which we have any account, was that of Menes, who, Herodotus tells us, was the first of the Pharaohs, or native Egyptian kings, and who lived about 3,500 years before Christ. The nature of his code is not known.



The Biblical account extends further back, but it does not appear that any laws existed regulating marriage, but each one was allowed to choose his wife and concubines, and it is supposed that common consent respected the selection. Next, Moses gave laws for the government of marriage among the Israelites.



The early Greeks followed the code of Cecrops, and the Romans were also governed in their marital relations by stringent laws. In fact, the necessity of some law regulating the intercourse between the sexes must have become very apparent to all nations or communities at a very early period. It certainly antedates any legal regulations with regard to the possession of property.



It is very probable that every community did by common consent afford to each male one or more females, and the presumption is that such choice or assignment, as the case may have been, was respected by common agreement as inviolable. It is doubtful if ever promiscuity was the law or privilege with any community of men, even in their primitive state.



The possession of reason is antagonistic to such a belief; and man was most probably elevated above the beast by the faculty of reason in this respect as in others. Promiscuous indulgence is always evidence of debauchery, and a departure from that natural course which is prompted by an innate sense of propriety characterizing mankind.



The law is very indefinite with regard to what constitutes a legal marriage. It is an unsettled question, both in England and this country, whether a marriage solemnized by customary formalities alone is legal, or if one characterized by the mere consent of the parties is illegal. The latter has been held as legal in some instances in both countries.



Kent, in his “Commentaries,” lays down the law that a contract made so that either party recognizes it from the moment of contract, and even not followed by cohabitation, amounts to a valid marriage, and also that a contract to be recognized at some future period, and followed by consummation, is equally valid.



It is unfortunate that the law is so undecided in this respect. The decisions arrived at, for or against, were not dependent upon any recognized law, but seem to be influenced by the character of the cases, either for favor or discountenance.



As long as the law recognizes cohabitation legal only in marriage, it seems to me that if consummated under consent of the parties to bear marital relations with each other, or promise of marriage, the act should be unhesitatingly pronounced as the equivalent of a valid marriage in all instances.



If cohabitation is only a marital prerogative, the law should not stultify itself by recognizing it as possible to occur in any other relation. If either of the parties is married, the law defines it as adultery, and very properly defines the punishment. It is necessary to the progress of the age that some such principle should be recognized in common law so as not to subject the decision of the question to the individual opinion of any judge.



It would at once obviate the confusion of sentiment now held in regard to it and besides arrest the decision in test cases from mere caprice of the tribunal. It is certainly as correct a principle as any in common law, and would, in its operations as a statute law, be free from injustice, and capable of doing much good.

During Dating And Courtship, Single Women Should Do The Following To Avoid Losing Their Partners And Honor – The Vintage Woman.



Young men are fond of your company and of paying you every polite attention, and you, as a right-minded woman, are well pleased to be so treated. It is due to you as a woman. Now, each of them is, or ought to be, looking out for a wife, and it is well that you should know this.



It is, too, more important than you perhaps are aware, that you should be carefully making your own observations, so that when the time arrives for one of them to ask you to become his wife you may not be taken by surprise, but may know how to act on the occasion.



Let me caution you here against a failing that is common among young women. I mean that of making themselves too cheap. They feel flattered by the attentions paid to them, and are not sufficiently aware that many young men are fond of indulging in flattery; and such, if they find a young woman weak enough to be pleased with it, will perhaps play upon her feelings and gain her affections without having any honorable intentions towards her.



As a protection against such, I recommend you to have a proper respect for yourself, and to consider with what object or purpose you receive their attentions. If you respond without an object, you may be doing them wrong; if you accept them when they have no right intentions, you allow them to wrong you.



For this purpose consider well what you are—a human being intended for an eternity of bliss. God has made you a woman; and, believe me, as there is no fairer, so there is no nobler creature than woman. She is formed to be her husband’s helpmate and the mother of his children, and the all-important work of training these for heaven depends mainly upon her.



Great, then, is her responsibility; but God has given her the requisite love and power to do her duty with satisfaction and delight. He has placed you in this beautiful world that by doing your duty as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend, you may become fitted to enter His heavenly kingdom.



During your courtship let me entreat you to be very careful and circumspect. There is no period of life that can compare with this delightful season. It is, or should be, full of sunshine and sparkling with the poetry of life; but alas! to many it is the opposite. A want of judgment—a momentary indiscretion—has not only blotted out this beautiful springtime of life, but has marred, darkened, and blighted the whole of the after lifetime.



No maiden can, under any circumstances, place her character in the hands of any man before marriage. No matter how sincere the love, how ardent the protestations, how earnest or plausible the pleadings, you must not, you cannot, surrender your honor. You must preserve your prudence and virtue;

Principles For Choosing The Right Marriage Partner | How To Know You’re Marrying The Right Person – The Vintage Woman.



When to marry.


The proper age to marry is a somewhat vexed question, but needlessly so, because that age varies much, according to temperament and other circumstances relating to the individual. Although after puberty the sexual organs are capable of reproduction, yet it by no means follows that they should be used for that purpose.


Their early activity is intended for the perfection of the body and mind, and not for the continuation of the species.


Very early marriage therefore, should be avoided, because the nervous force expended in amative indulgence is imperatively required in both sexes for developing the physical and mental faculties. The zoösperms produced by the male in the first years of puberty are inferior in power and less capable of producing healthy offspring than those of mature years.

The early germs, also, of the female are less fitted for fecundation than those that appear later in life; nature evidently intending these early efforts to be used on the individuals themselves in building up their bodies, strengthening their minds, and preparing them to reproduce their species in maturer years.


There is a serious day of reckoning for early indulgence; for precocious persons (unless their constitutions are as powerful as their desires) who give way to their passions at their first exactions, barter their youth for their enjoyment, and are old and weary of the world at an age when people of more moderate habits are only in the meridian of pleasure and existence.


Generally the best age to marry where the health is perfect, is from twenty-one to twenty-five in the male and from eighteen to twenty-one in the female. As a general rule, marriages earlier than this are injurious and detrimental to health.




http://oh-wedding.tumblr.com/post/138355429370/emerald-green-wedding



Men who marry too young, unless they are of cold and phlegmatic constitution, [and thus moderate in their conduct, become partially bald, dim of sight, and lose all elasticity of limb in a few years; while women in a like position rarely have any bloom on their cheek or fire in their eye by the time they are twenty-five. And all profound physiologists agree that from the same cause the mental faculties suffer in the same ratio.


A medium, however, is to be observed. It is not well to defer till middle age the period of connubial intercourse; for too tedious spinsterhood is as much calculated to hasten the decay of beauty as too early a marriage.


Hence, there is rarely any freshness to be seen in a maiden of thirty; while the matron of that age, if her life has been a happy one, and her hymeneal condition of not more than ten years’ standing, is scarcely in the heyday of her charm’s. And the same rule will apply with equal force to the other sex; for, after the first prime of life, bachelors decay and grow old much faster than married men.

Financial Standing.



The rich are qualified for marriage before the poor. This is owing to the superiority of their aliment; for very nutritious food, and the constant use of wines, coffee, etc., greatly assists in developing the organs of reproduction; whereas the food generally made use of among the peasantry of most countries—as vegetables, corn, milk, etc.—retards their growth.


Owing to this difference of diet, the daughter of a man of wealth, who keeps a good table, will be as adequate to certain duties of married life at eighteen as the daughter of a humble peasant at twenty-one.


Singular as it may seem, it is none the less true, that love novels, amorous conversations, playing parlor games for kisses, voluptuous pictures, waltzing, and, in fact, all things having a tendency to create desire, assist in promoting puberty and preparing young persons for early marriage. Those who reach this estate, however, by artificial means and much before the natural period will have to suffer for it in after life.

The female who marries before the completion of her womanhood—that is, before her puberty is established—will cease to grow and probably become pale and delicate, the more especially if she become pregnant soon after marriage. A person who is thus circumstanced will also be liable to abortions and painful deliveries.


Marriage unless under very peculiar circumstances, should not take place until two or three years after the age of puberty. Many instances could be cited of the injurious effects resulting from not observing this rule.


The case of the son of Napoleon I. is a notable instance, who, at the age of fifteen or sixteen, began his career of sexual indulgence, which ended his life at the early age of twenty-one years.

He was an amiable, inoffensive, and studious youth, beloved by his grandfather and the whole Austrian court; and though the son of the most energetic man that modern times has produced, yet, from his effeminate life, he scarcely attracted the least public attention.


Let me, therefore, advise the male reader to keep his desires in leading-strings until he is at least twenty-one, and the female not to enter the pale of wedlock until she is past her eighteenth year; but after these periods marriage is their proper sphere of action, and one in which they must play a part or suffer actual pain as well as the loss of one of the greatest of earthly pleasures.



Mental, Physical And Personality Considerations.



Marriages are most happy and most productive of handsome and healthy offspring when the husband and wife differ, not only in mental conformation, but in bodily construction. A melancholy man should mate himself with a sprightly woman, and vice versa; for otherwise they will soon grow weary of the monotony of each other’s company.

By the same rule should the choleric and the patient be united, and the ambitious and the humble; for the opposites of their natures not only produce pleasurable excitement, but each keeps the other in a wholesome check. In the size and form of the parties the same principles hold good.


Tall women are not the ideals of beauty to tall men; and if they marry such, they will soon begin to imagine greater perfections in other forms than in those of their own wives. And this is well ordered by nature to prevent the disagreeable results which are almost certain to grow out of unions where the parties have a strong resemblance.


For instance, tall parents will probably have children taller than either, and mental imbecility is the usual attendant of extreme size. The union of persons prone to corpulency, of dwarfs, etc., would have parallel results; and so, likewise, of weakly and attenuated couples.




Ginger Ray Drop Top Wooden Frame Alternative Wedding Guest Book-Boho.





The tall should marry the short, the corpulent the lean, the choleric the gentle, and so on, and the tendency to extremes in the parents will be corrected in the offspring.


Apart from these considerations, there are reasons why persons of the same disposition should not be united and wedlock. An amiable wife to a choleric man is like oil to troubled waters; an ill-tempered one will make his life a misery and his home a hell.


The man of studious habits should marry a woman of sense and spirit rather than of erudition, or the union will increase the monotony of his existence, which it would be well for his health and spirits to correct by a little conjugal excitement; and the man of gloomy temperament will find the greatest relief from the dark forebodings of his mind in the society of a gentle, but lively and smiling partner.


However, in some particulars the dispositions and constructions of married people must assimilate or they will have but few enjoyments in common.




http://a-wedding-scrapbook.tumblr.com/post/181856063755/clary-pfeiffer



The man of full habits and warm nature had better remain single than unite his destinies with a woman whose heart repulses the soft advancements of love; and the sanguine female in whose soul love is the dominant principle should avoid marriage with a very phlegmatic person, or her caresses, instead of being returned in kind, will rather excite feelings of disgust.


Thus the discriminations to be made in the choice of a partner are extremely nice.Nature generally assists art in the choice of partners. We instinctively seek in the object of our desires the qualities which we do not possess ourselves.


This is a most admirable arrangement of Providence, as it establishes an equilibrium and prevents people from tending to extremes; for it is known that unions of dwarfs are fruitful of dwarfs, that giants proceed from the embrace of giants, and that offspring of parents alike irritable, alike passive, alike bashful, etc., inherit the prominent qualities of both to such a degree as to seriously interfere with their prospects in the world.

It has another advantage. Through its means “Every eye forms its own beauty”; hence, what one person rejects is the beau ideal of another’s conceptions, and thus we are all provided for.


In fine, with man as with animals, the best way to improve the breed is to cross it, for the intermarriage of like with like and relative with relative not only causes man to degenerate, but if the system became universal would in time bring the human race to a termination altogether.


A male or female with a very low forehead should carefully avoid marriage with a person of like conformation, or their offspring will, in all probability, be weak-minded or victims to partial idiocy.


The system of crossing is so perfect that marriages between persons of different countries are likely to be pleasant and fruitful. Speaking on this subject, an English writer says: “The Persians have been so improved by introducing foreigners that they have completely succeeded in washing out their Mongolian origin.”







And the same author adds to the effect that in those parts of Persia where there is no foreign intercourse the inhabitants are sickly and stunted, while in those that are frequented by strangers they are large and healthy.


To make what is called, “A handsome couple,” the female should be about three inches less than the male, and the parties should be proportionately developed throughout their system.


A well formed woman says a modern physiologist, “should have her head, shoulders, and chest small and compact; arms and limbs relatively short; her haunches apart; her hips elevated; her abdomen large and her thighs voluminous. Hence, she should taper from the center, up and down.


Whereas, in a well-formed man the shoulders are more prominent than the hips. Great hollowness of the back, the pressing of the thigh against each other in walking, and the elevation of one hip above the other, are indications of the malformation of the pelvis.”




NIGHT-GRING 200pcs Rustic Wooden Love Heart Wedding Table Scatter Decoration Crafts Children’s DIY Manual Patch.





From the same writer I take the following, which is applicable here. It is very correct in its estimates of beauty in both sexes:—


“The length of the neck should be proportionately less in the male than in the female, because the dependence of the mental system on the vital one is naturally connected with the shorter courses of the vessels of the neck.


“The neck should form a gradual transition between the body and head—its fullness concealing all prominences of the throat.


“The shoulders should slope from the lower part of the neck, because the reverse shows that the upper part of the chest owes its width to the bones and muscles of the shoulders.


“The upper part of the chest should be relatively short and wide, independent of the size of the shoulders, for this shows the vital organs which it contains are sufficiently developed.







“The waist should taper a little farther than the middle of the trunk, and be marked, especially in the back and loins, by the approximation of the hips. “The waist should be narrower than the upper part of the trunk and its muscles, because the reverse indicates the expansion of the stomach, liver, and great intestine, resulting from their excessive use.


“The back of woman should be more hollow than that of man; for otherwise the pelvis is not of sufficient depth for parturition.


“Women should have more extended loins than men, at the expense of the superior and inferior parts, for this conformation is essential to gestation. “The abdomen should be larger in woman than in man, for the same reason.


“Over all these parts the cellular tissue, and the plumpness connected with it, should obliterate all distinct projection of muscles.


“The surface of the whole female form should be characterized by its softness, elasticity, smoothness, delicacy, and polish, and by the gradual and easy transition between the parts.




ilauke 20 Yards Natural Burlap Ribbon Roll with White Lace Trims Tape 6 Rolls for Rustic Wedding Favor Decorations.





“The moderate plumpness already described should bestow on the organs of woman great suppleness. Plumpness is essential to beauty, especially in mothers, because in them the abdomen necessarily expands, and would afterwards collapse and become wrinkled.


“An excess of plumpness, however, is to be guarded against. Young women who are very fat are cold and prone to barrenness. “In no case should plumpness be so predominant as to destroy the distinctness of parts.”


A male and female formed on the above models would be well matched and have fine children.

“And Saul said to David, “You are not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him; for you are a youth, and he a man of war from his youth.”
34 But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, 35 I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it. 36 Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God.” 37 Moreover David said, “The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!”
38 So Saul clothed David with his armor, and he put a bronze helmet on his head; he also clothed him with a coat of mail. 39 David fastened his sword to his armor and tried to walk, for he had not tested them. And David said to Saul, “I cannot walk with these, for I have not tested them.” So David took them off.

1 Samuel 17:33-39

It does not matter who start the race the most important thing is who finish the race. Though some have gone ahead of you now it is not an issue the most important thing is the end. A winner is not border about the beginning because Job 8: 7 says, Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase. Building a winning mentally is a sure way to live a productive life.

Every challenges you encounter in life is to charge you in order to be in charge of your destiny. A winner is charged in the atmosphere of challenges because Proverb 23:18 says For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off. Winning mentally is the characteristic way of thinking about obtaining victorious result.

In this edition we shall be looking at how to build a winning mentality. Therefore, building a winning mentality required the following : The strength of your Knowledge, The strength of your Faith and The strength of your Vision.

To live a triumphant life is to be adequately informed about God’s promises concerning you and your immediate environment. Knowledge is power that is why God says in Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge I will also reject thee.

You need to understand here that God says my people, that is His children not unbeliever but believer are destroyed for lack of knowledge. So it is possible to be born again or spirit filled and yet be under satanic bondage. See ,whatever you don’t know will continue to rule over you.

“Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.”

Isaiah 5:13

God laid another emphasis here again that my people are in captivity today simply because of no knowledge. Building a winning mentality required the strength of your knowledge.

Note, every winner is a man and woman of faith. Life is a battle therefore the only recommended spiritual medication is faith because without faith you will always faint and defeated by the enemies.

“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. To lay hold on what belongs to you in the place of destiny demands a rugged faith. Faith is a defensive mechanism that guarantee our victory.”

1 Timothy 6:12

“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Building a winning mentality required the strength of your faith.”

Ephesians 6:16

I wrote WAEC (West African Examination Council) twice and JAMB (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board) four times but I made up my mind that I will only go to university not polytechnic for two reasons. First, all the male sibling in my family are university graduate so I cannot settle for less. Secondly, I wanted to study Law and Polytechnic don’t offer law so I have no choice than to keep believing God for victory despite my consistence failure in JAMB however I finally passed my JAMB got admission ,graduated and served in JAMB and working in JAMB today.

Hello sir/ma, you are defeated in life because of the size of your faith not because of the size of your problem.

I pray for you today that where you have been rejected before they will celebrate you again in the mighty name of Jesus.

Conclusively, building a winning mentality required the strength of vision.

“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.”

Proverbs 29:18

Vision is what guarantee a triumphant life. What you see empower your driven force to move further in life . The desire of God for us is to live by His vision.

“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.”

Joel 2:28

Where there is vision there is a provision and direction. You cannot carry God’s vision and be stranded.

“Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.”

Exodus 23:20

Destiny is from the word destination so our destination is already prepared and packaged by God. Coming out of Egypt and going through the red sea and wilderness to Canna land is God vision that was why red sea, Amalakites, Jordan and Wall of Jericho were too small to stop God’s vision (people) because God is too faithful to abandon His vision.

“For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?”

Isaiah 14:27

You need to know your God vision on earth therefore you need to align your vision with God vision to fulfill your purpose on earth because no devil can stop God’s vision.

Memory Verse:

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

1 John4:4

Striking Point:

You are defeated in life because of the size of your faith not because of the size of your problem.

Prayer Points:
1. Father empower in every department of life to win every battle in the name of Jesus.
2. In the name of Jesus I refuse to stop my journey half way.

34 But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, 35 I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it. 36 Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God.” 37 Moreover David said, “The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!”
38 So Saul clothed David with his armor, and he put a bronze helmet on his head; he also clothed him with a coat of mail. 39 David fastened his sword to his armor and tried to walk, for he had not tested them. And David said to Saul, “I cannot walk with these, for I have not tested them.” So David took them off.

1 Samuel 17:33-39

We live by faith and not sight therefore building a winning mentality is a game of mind, strength of faith and not by sight. It is possible for a leper or a blind man to live a successful life but it is impossible to see a successful mad man in the society.

The strength of your mentality determines the quality of your triumphant life.

“Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.”

Micah 7: 8

A winning mentality is the secret to a triumphant life. God has built in every man a winning mentality right from the beginning of creation God Himself gave us His breath which is the inspiration to live an outstanding life.

“There is a spirit in man and the inspiration ( breath) of the Almighty giveth them understanding.”

Job 32 :8

There is an inspiration invested in your spirit man greater than anything you could imagine in this world to empower you against every mountain in life. There is no mountain anywhere big enough to stop us, the problem is the lack of winning mentality.

“And David said to Saul, Let no man’s heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine. 33 And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth. 34 And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:

1 Samuel 17: 32

David said to a whole King that let no man’s heart fail because of Goliath. What a winning mentality! See there is no Goliath anywhere the problem is lack of giant heart. To lay hold on what belongs you in the place of destiny requires a giant heart because it takes a giant heart to conquer your Goliath.

King Saul said to David again you are a youth so you are not qualified to war against Goliath because of your inexperience ,age, size and strength but David said it is not about age or whatever qualification you could mention my king but it is about what I can do because I am used to winning in any battle field.

Hello sir/ma, Your victory in life is not in size and sight but in the heart.

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me”.

Philippians 4: 13

What is winning mentality?

To win is to obtain victorious result in a contest.
Mentality is the characteristic way of thinking of a person.
Winning mentality is the characteristic way of thinking about obtaining victorious result.

However, mentality emphasize on character and character is a daily lifestyle of a man therefore winning mentality requires a daily lifestyle commitment of a man thinking positively.

“Let this mind be in you as it was with Jesus.”

Philippians 2:5

Briefly, let me give you the picture of Jesus mind.

In John 3: 17 “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He is a saviour, in Jesus 16: 33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace in the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. He is an overcomer, in Romans 8: 37” Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

During Jesus earthly ministry you will understand that he has the mind of saviour, overcomer and conqueror therefore defeating satan become a very cheap assignment for Him because of this mentality.

In the next edition we shall be looking at what it takes to build a winning mentality.

Memory Verse:

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

1 John4:4

Striking Point:

Your Victory in Life is not size and sight but in the heart.

Prayer Point:

Heavenly father help me to build a winning heart and mentality to fulfill my destiny in life.

“Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. 3 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”
4 But He answered and said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”
5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written:
He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ ”
7 Jesus said to him, “It is written again, You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ”
8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”
10 Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.”

Matthew 4:1-10

We have discovered what Process is all about .In this edition we shall be looking at the importance of process in fulfilling God’s purpose on earth however there are two key words from the definition of process I want you to hold tenaciously from now on.

Once again process is a series of actions that produce something or that leads to a particular result. The two words are Actions and Results. Process has the capacity to expose someone actions and characters.

You will not believe that you can still commit fornication or adultery until you encounter Potiphar’s (Your boss) wife who needs you badly to sleep with her at no cost like Joseph without prying eyes, you will not believe that you can still steal until you are broke and you are a treasurer in your office or church like Judas Iscariot, you will not believe that you can still lie until you are under pressure like Peter who denied Christ three times more so you will not believe that you can give out your birthright at the expense of food until you are caught under pressure to eat anything because of scarcity, famine or unpaid salary for several months.

See, every Will of God for someone life must go through wilderness.

And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.

Deuteronomy 8: 2

We will not rush out of this scripture until we go through it over and over again to discover why God allowed His own children to go through wilderness for 40years.

  1. To test humility.
  2. To test actions.
  3. To test their heart.

These are the things that God was looking for in the life of His children for the period of 40 years. Now you know the reason why that breakthrough was delay in your life. Truly, you know if that breakthrough come now or if God answer that anointing you have been praying for you will not be committed or be faithful again in fact you are humble now because you don’t have anything at the moment.

Hello sir/ma , God may allow that problem or that prayer point to tarry for years in order to discover the real you. It was during the process of waiting for the fruit of the womb for almost 4 years I understood what patience is all about.

“For you have need of patience, that, after you have done the will of God, you might receive the promise”.

Hebrew 10:36

It took 40 years for God to prepare Moses in the wilderness before he graduated yet you know the way he ended. David was anointed at the age of 17years as a king yet he did not ascend the throne until he was 30years.

It took another 40 days in the wilderness by Elijah to discovered Elisha because it was in the wilderness he discovered that he was no longer fit again for the race and God said no problem there is a replacement on ground already.

“But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers.”

1 King 19: 4

What of our Lord Jesus Christ?

He spent 40days in the wilderness going through series of test on character development that Adam the first savior failed in the Garden before he graduated from a beloved Son in whom am well pleased to a beloved Son in whom I am well pleased hear Him (Matthew 3:17& Matthew 17:5).

He started the ministry after he passed the test in the wilderness because it was in the wilderness God gave Him a voice. Now this was the same voice that John the Baptist lost in the wilderness as a result of impatience when he left the wilderness and he got killed prematurely that God handed over to Jesus Christ.

The importance of going through a process brethren is for you not to end up in shame. People were coming from town to the wilderness to hear John the Baptist.

In John1: 23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias. No wonder God said in the book of Isaiah 43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

God is working out something in the wilderness you are going through now.

The eternal plans and package for you and I is far beyond bread and pleasures around us. Until you are ready to deny the pleasures of this world you will not be able to access the heavenly treasures prepared for you.

“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”

James 1: 2

Don’t give up yet God is working on something. I understand you have been waiting for miracle job for years don’t worry, you have been trusting God for the fruit of the womb, you have been waiting for admission ,you are looking for a future partner, you have been waiting on God for divine direction, you have been trusting God for breakthrough? Don’t worry God is working out something better for you.

Let patience have her perfect work on you until you are capable of sustaining your breakthrough. No reasonable mother will give her little child razor blade to play. That you are waiting upon the Lord does not mean you are wasting your time but rather you are waiting on your season.

Until you understand your season you will not see a reason for going through a process. It is my prayer for you that you will not give up or die before your breakthrough.

Memory Verse:

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1

Striking Point:

Until you are ready to deny the pleasures of this world you will not be able to access heavenly treasures prepared for you.

Matthew 4:1-10

Your success in life is determined by the process you pass through. You must pass through something in life to obtain your breakthrough. The beauty of gold is made through fire therefore life is not fulfill until it pass through a process. Baby is not delivered until the baby is processed for the period of nine (9) months in the womb.

Life is beyond butter and bread. Many people are in haste to accomplish life today in fact their prayer focus is divine speed to fulfill destiny at the expense of process. God is not an author of confusion therefore He has pre designed for every man a period in which he will be processed before he launch him out.

The success of Lord Jesus Christ during His earthly ministry cannot be fulfilled without the law of process at the wilderness.

What is a Process?

Process is a series of actions that produce something or that lead to a particular result. Process is a divine package where God train and prepare His own children for the future ahead. Process is a school of training and preparation for the future leaders.

There are lots of pains, troubles, stress, struggles, pressure ,tears, shame and insult during the process however there is a result behind every insult in fact the insult is permitted most times because is capable of producing tangible results.

Every man is a product of something. What produces you matters in life because it goes a long way to affect your destiny. Man is made in the workshop and not on the stage. Many people are interested in the stage and not the workshop. There is no short cut in life for every short cut will definitely cut you off from the plan and purpose of God.

“And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: 18 But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.

Exodus 13:17-18

God did not permit them to go through the short cut because they don’t have what it takes to stand the test of time.

“Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.”

Matthew 4: 1

God did not allow His Son( Jesus Christ) to start His earthly ministry until He passed through wilderness. To become something in life you must understand the power of process. Process is a period of training in order to determine the real person inside of you.

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

Jeremiah 17: 9

The essence of process is to determine the position of your heart. The first man Adam failed because he did not pass through the process for he saw everything around him made available no wonder he was not able to manage the success.

Many people have messed up at the peak of their success because they did not go through the process. Process is a period of preparation before manifestation. Jesus Christ was taken to the wilderness to prepare Him for the task ahead.

It was in the wilderness he understood the importance of prayer and fasting, quite time, personal fellowship and the power of the Word. Wilderness is a place where man is made, where flesh is drained, where the will of God is discovered and of course how to live a triumphant life.

In the next edition we shall be looking at the importance of the Power of Process in fulfilling destiny.

Rising Above Foundation – Part 1 – Triumphal Meal

Rising Above Foundation – Part 1 – Triumphal Meal.

Anchor Text:

“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee. And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.”

Genesis 12: 1-4

No man can rise above his foundation except by the help of God. The strength of every building lies in the foundation and the secret of every man is resident in the foundation. How far a man can go in life is determine by the foundation.

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

Psalms 11:3

Right from the beginning of creation God has prepared a way out of separating man from his foundation and one of the ways is through marriage.

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

Genesis 2:24

Separating from father house as an escape route top the agenda of God as divine plan for every man right from the beginning of the world. There is a mystery beyond the physical independence through marriage as we thought however the mystery is unravel in this scripture.

Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee . 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing.

Genesis 12: 1-2

God said to Abram to come out of his foundation to a better place He will show him. Let us examine some errors from foundation which may be the reasons God desires for man to leave his father’s house if man must fulfill his purpose.
The first evil ( A murder case between two brothers Cain and Abel ) that took place in the Bible was from the same father house.

The first incest (sex between father and daughters – Lot and his daughters) took place in a father house.
The first robbery and manipulation (Jacob and Esau) took place in a father house.
The first envy and hatred that almost claimed Joseph life (Joseph and his brothers) took place in a father house. The first dream killer was also discovered in a father house.

Therefore beloved you can now understand better the plan of God for every man to leave his father’s house to a better place where God himself has prepared for us through Christ Jesus. Jesus is the new foundation upon which our destiny is covenanted and secured through the sacrifice of His Blood.

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

1 Corinthians 3:11

This new foundation is free and redeemed from errors ,evil ,guilt and faults.

I pray for you and I that God will take us out of our evil foundation to a place God has prepared for us in Jesus name.
When God says leave your father’s house He only wants you to rise above your foundation and fulfill purpose. Whatever powers that tied your glory down in your foundation will release you today by fire in Jesus name.

Why will God waits for a man to leaves his foundation before God will bless him and make him great ?
That is why we need to consider the meaning of foundation.

What is Foundation?

The word foundation means root or origin of all things. Foundation means the beginning of something that provides support. Literarily, foundation is the basis (as a tenet, principle, or axiom) upon which something stands or is supported.

Now looking at the first definition you will discover that we have root and origin in the sentence. It is the root of the plant that determines their strength and fruits. Foundation determines how fruitful and how far someone will go in life. This is the reason devil is so much interested in fighting someone from foundation because your strength and originality is packaged in your origin therefore devil knows that the moment foundation is conquered everything is defeated.

But am glad to introduce Jesus Christ to you today the new foundation that is far above defeat, failures, afflictions, sickness, bondage, faults, kingdoms, powers and principality. All you need to do is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal savior and your identity changes immediately.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

2 Corinthians 5:17

In the next edition we shall be looking into solutions and types of foundation.

Memory Verse:

“And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.”

John 1:46

Striking Point:

No man can rise far above foundation.

Prayer Points:

  • Heavenly Father please have mercy on my foundation and deliver me from every legal ground upon which devil is using to attack me in the name of Jesus.
  • Lord Jesus arise and empower me to overcome my evil foundation today.
  • By the Power in the Blood of Jesus I silent every evil and errors at work in my life from my foundation.

You Would Be Shocked To Read What Has Been Happening To Many People On Facebook

You Would Be Shocked To Read What Has Been Happening To Many People On Facebook Blog Post Banner Image

You Would Be Shocked To Read What Has Been Happening To Many People On Facebook.

I received the post and message below in my email correspondence and I was compelled to share it because I believe this is important information and knowledge that needs to be out there.

I have copied and pasted the message, the way it was received.

You would be shocked to read what has been happening to many people on Facebook.

Don’t accept Facebook friends request of people you don’t know. Read this to the end, the world is in another shape now, #SHOCKING EXPOSURE!

Every facebook user needs to read this, especially the Christians.

I came across this on youtube and I think you deserve to know this. A man made very shocking confessions on what has been happening on facebook so far, and these were his words as he was questioned…
“We are out with a mandate to lay hold on the souls of the youth.”

WHO ARE YOU?

 

“We are agents of Lucifer and we are many.”

HOW DO YOU INTEND TO CARRY OUT THIS MISSION?

 

“We sat in our kingdom and watched how children, teenagers and youths got so interested on the social media, they got so carried away by Whatsapp, Bing, Facebook, Twitter and every other media so we invented a plan. We have destroyed many destinies and rendered many useless through social media but our main concentration is on “Facebook.”

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE FACEBOOK?

 

Because we saw that it was more progressive than the others, youths love facebook, they spend much time on it than they do on the others so we placed more demonic agents on facebook and they are at work now even as I speak.”

HOW DO YOU GET THESE PEOPLE?

 

“It’s very easy!(laughs) we send them a friend request, once they accept the request, we write down their names in our book and start manipulating their spirits.”

IN WHAT MANNER DO YOU SEND THE REQUESTS?

 

“We send the requests just like every other facebook request but the spirit of the individual is captured mainly when he/she goes through our profile pictures or photo albums, once they see our pictures, their souls are already undergoing manipulations because those photos are not just any photo, they are ordinary photos with extraordinary spirits.”

WHAT DO THESE PHOTOS LOOK LIKE?

 

“Sometimes, we use the naked picture of a woman as our profile picture in order to attract men but most times, we use these pictures (he brought out some horror pictures of these movies- “The Lord of the rings”, “Vampire attack”, and many others I couldn’t recognize). Most times, we chat with them but when we chat, we don’t send text messages, we send these photos and once they see these photos, if they were vibrant spiritually, academically, morally and in every aspect, they will begin to drop and eventually drop down.”

WHAT DO YOU DO TO THE PEOPLE YOU CAPTURE?

 

“Their lives get contaminated negatively and their minds get polluted with lust, we never let them go, there are more number of spirits on earth than that of humans and each of them is looking for a body to carry them so many spirits can possess one person and before anything happens physically, it is controlled in the spirit. We get them addicted to porn, homosexuality, lesbianism, masturbation, lust and fornication but the main weak points are porn, masturbation and fornication (laughs), they never get out of it no matter how hard they try.”

HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU GOTTEN?

 

They are too many and majority of them are youth.

GIVE A SPECIFIC NUMBER OF PEOPLE YOU’VE GOTTEN!

 

“Like I said, they are too many but on facebook alone, we have gotten over 2million youths and i believe our agents are still getting more now. We have diverted our attention on the youth and they are falling to this very plan. We send the request, they accept, go through our photos and they get manipulated. Their lives will never remain the same.”
(After this, the spirit speaking through this young man was cast out showing that even he himself was a victim of the same manipulations).

My dear facebook friend, can you count how many friend requests you’ve accepted or how many people you’ve added? Can you recall how many pictures you’ve seen or how many chats you’ve had? Are you among these 2million youths or among the ones that are yet to be gotten?

Before the end of the deliverance, the spirit mentioned that they have access to the spirits of those facebookers who are “empty” and once they get them, they make love to them through dreams and drain their destinies.

I now ask, “Are you empty?” The term “empty” here is a spiritual term.

Do you have a stronger spirit dominating you?

“WE HAVE A GENERATION OF BLEEDING YOUTH”

 

If you are struggling with any of these things, you are a bleeding youth. We have to reach out to as much people as we can especially the youth. Search and join godly & encouraging groups now for more info. We need you to help get youths informed. It is possible before time runs out to liberate our generation by praying & fasting for God’s intervention.

If you have come across this post, don’t hesitate to share it in as many groups & contacts as possible because someone out there could be in serious danger.

“And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt. 

Exodus 13:17-18

Every man has a destination he/she is heading to but only few knows the right way to follow to arrive the destination.

“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”

Proverbs 3:6

God’s purpose required God’s way and that is why to fulfill God’s purpose on earth you need the right way to achieve it. God is ever conscious of our way because His way guarantee direction while other way leads to destruction.

In this edition we shall be looking at two(2) types of way.

However, Pathway Is a track that a person can walk through or set of actions that you take in life leading to your destination.

“And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.”

Jeremiah 21:8

From the above scripture you will agree with me that there are two ways in life. First, The Way of Life and The Way of Death.

Now, going back to our anchor scripture in Exodus 13:17-18 “And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.

God identified two ways here for His children which are the way through the Philistines and the way through the wilderness. The way of Philistines is a short cut to the destination however safety was not guarantee while the way through the wilderness is longer but safety was guarantee.

Hello sir/ma , there is a short cut in life but every short cut is meant to cut you off from the purpose of God.

The way of God is always longer for man but the glory awaiting cannot be compare with bread and butter. Though ,God wanted wilderness for His children because wilderness reveal His Will for the next level.

The way of Life is the way of God.

“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”

Proverbs 3:6

If only you can consult God for the right way to go in life then you are sure of divine direction and triumphant life in all your way.

“And David enquired at the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.”

1 Samuel 30:8

David understood the mystery of life that was why he ensured God must be involved in that journey. See, when you go your own way, you will fight alone. Many are defeated today in the battle of life because they have taken the way of death.

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

Proverbs 14:12

In God’s way ,God himself fight all the battles while your own responsibility is to hold your peace.

“The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.”

Exodus 14:14

When God is involved in your way he solves all problems along your ways.

“Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.”

Zechariah 4:7

Grace is given and available to those that involves God in the race to subdue every barriers that is why mountain is too small neither big enough to stop the purpose of God for your life. When you carry God along in all your ways every doors and gates must be lifted.

“Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.”

Psalms 24:7

God’ s way cannot be stooped , God’s way cannot frustrated, God’s way cannot be hindered ,God’s cannot be manipulated and God’s way cannot be denied by any powers, policy or any rulers of darkness.

Today ,I present before you my faithful reader the book of Jeremiah 21:8, “And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.”

The choice you make today is very important to the Pathway of life however to everything in life there is an end just think about it. Jesus is the way, the life and the truth .The only truth about this life is that you need Jesus to end well. Remain blessed and Hope to see you in heaven.

Memory Verse:

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.”

Isaiah 55:8

There is a short cut in life but every shortcut is meant to cut you off from God’s purpose.

In the journey of life, the desire of God for every man he has created is to walk through the right way to our destination. God’s way cannot be frustrated or hinder by any demon. Not even the Red Sea or the Wall of Jericho is big enough to stand in the way of God.

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. God’s way guarantee safety, provision and strength. Lot of people are stranded, confused and helpless by the way side because they chose the way to go by them selves.”

Isaiah 55:9

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. God is so much interested in your eternal destination than your earthly life. Marriages crash like car accident this days because it has become the way of man not the Will of God any more. Destruction of lives and property are every where today because people have abandoned the way of God. The way of God cannot be substituted neither will you see an alternative to it anywhere in the world. Hello sir/ma , when you walk in the way of God he will keep you in all your ways.”

Proverbs 14:12

What is pathway?


Is a track that a person can walk through or set of actions that you take in life leading to your destination.
Journey become unbearable and difficult without a pathway. Whatever decision you take today is capable of leading you to a particular destination.

It is God’s desires to use men to accomplish His purpose on earth yet He will never push a man against his choice. The choice you make in life determines your pathway.

Memory Verse:

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.”

Isaiah 55:8

Striking Point:

“When you walk in the way of God, He will keep you in all your way.”

Prayer Point:

“Heavenly father show me and lead me through the right way to go in life.”

Building A Dependable Character – Part 2 – Triumphal Meal.

Anchor Text:

“But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state. For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s. But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel. Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me. But I trust in the Lord that I also myself shall come shortly.

Philippians 2:19-24

Heaven is the home of people of noble and perfect character. Bible has given us the revelation about heaven and what the place looks like.

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”

Matthew 5:48

So, Heaven is a perfect environment and ruled by a perfect God therefore the question whether we can live a perfect life or not should be dropped henceforth. However, any believer that think it is impossible to have a perfect character is not ready for heaven. God has sanitized heaven before now and it was not difficult for HIM to throw out one of HIS trusted Arch Angel Lucifer because of character flaw.

As a matter of fact, we have three arch angels in heaven appointed by God with different responsibilities . Angel Lucifer was saddle with responsibilities of choir but was caught with abysmal character and immediately God sent him out of heaven because heaven is a perfect environment prepared for perfect saints.

“Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.”

Ezekiel 28:15-18

In this edition, we shall be looking at the importance of character and how we can build it overtime.

A good name is built through character and through name integrity is built therefore character is very important than wealth in every endeavors of life.

A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. Why is character important?

Proverbs 22:1

1. Character provides you identity.

“And he said unto him, Behold now, there is in this city a man of God, and he is an honourable man; all that he saith cometh surely to pass: now let us go thither; peradventure he can shew us our way that we should go.” 1 Samuel 9:6

It was character that distinguished Samuel among others in his time. Samuel was known as a honourable man of God with integrity therefore he got himself an identity that other people lack in their days. Show me a man with good identity and I will show a man of Centre of attraction.

2. Character has the capacity to announce a man.

“But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state. For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s. But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel.” Philippians 2:19-22

Uncle Timotheus was announced within and abroad in his time because of good character he had built with Apostle Paul. As a matter of fact , Paul said the only like minded man that I know and I can trust even among other disciples is Uncle Timotheus. What a testimony? You do not need social media to be advertised just build for yourself a trusted character and the media will come knocking at your door step.

3. Character guarantees you heaven.

Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5:48

A perfect character guarantee you a mansion among mansions that Jesus Christ has gone to prepared for the saints. Heaven is the home coming of noble and dependable character.

How do we build character?

Of course we can build character through relationship with God.

“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” Genesis 5:24

Until you understand the difference between walking with God and working for God you will not go far in the kingdom.
Walking with God is the most important thing because that is what builds relationship between man and God. God prefers relationship with Him far above your service unto Him.

And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

Genesis 17:1

God told Abram here point blank that relationship is first among other therefore if you must obtain the promise then work on your character because I the Almighty God value relationship more than anything you could imagine.

Hello sir/ma, it is your relationship with God that guarantees your Sonship.

Lastly ,we can build character through purpose.

“But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.”

Daniel 1:8

Every man of purpose is a man of character. Many Christians today have compromised their faith because of cheap offer. Lot of ladies have lost their virginity because of job opportunity or money. Some guys have sold their birth rights because of porridge.

It was not difficult for Daniel to remain focus and sustain his godly attitude even in the midst of ungodly people because Daniel has a purpose. A man of purpose don’t abuse opportunity but rather maximize it. Reason why some people misbehave is because they lack purpose and fear of God.

“There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?”

Genesis 39:9

This kind of statement confirmed that Joseph fear God and was a man of purpose. I will end up with this saying that when the purpose of a thing is not known abuse is inevitable.

Memory Verse:

“And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?”

Job 1:8

Striking Point:

It is your relationship with God that guarantees your sonship.

Prayer Point:

Father deliver me from every bad character standing as a legal ground in my life for enemy.

Philippians 2:19 -24

Every man of destiny without good character will end up in disaster. The gift of a man will take him to the palace but it will take character to sustain him there. Character is a foundation upon which destiny depend on to succeed . Academic qualifications and excellence without character is useless. Absence of good character open doors for stigma. A man with character crises is a disastrous man.

  • Character dictates every chapter of our life that is why it is difficult to fake it or hide it.
  • Character has denied several people of good opportunity.
  • Character has sacked some people out of white collar job untimely.
  • Character has rendered many home deserted .
  • Character has not graduated many beautiful ladies from single hood club.
  • Character has rendered many beautiful children with single parent or step father and mother.
  • Character has locked up some glorious destiny in the prison.
  • Character has sent some people to grave untimely.
  • Character is so important that it coordinate and anchor every moment of our life and everything on earth today depends on character.

Gone were the days when good character are limited to religion bodies only even politics ,institutions ,industries and tradition of today are demanding good character. Let me ask you this question why do you think that idols or ritualists are looking for young virgins and not prostitutes? I believe you have answered the question? As a matter of everything now is pointing back at character for a way forward.

However, securing job in our present day is not only base on academic performance again but base on recommendation from friends and family who can attest for candidates character.

Character is indispensable in this present day system because right from the dispensation of Adam and Eve God’s heart desired for us is to live a perfect life. And as soon as God discovered one man who demonstrated a perfect character, God could not abandoned him and the relationship on earth so they both journey together to heaven.

“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. so Enoch did not taste death because of good character what a record? Uncle Job has a profile in heaven that no man on earth possessed in his days what a record?” 

Genesis 5:24

“And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?”

Job 1:8

What is Character?

Literarily ,character is the attributes or features that make up and distinguish an individual.
Biblically, character is defined as perfect attitude or upright behaviour that makes someone to be outstanding among other.

There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

Genesis 39:9

From the time of old till this present time God ‘s standard for perfect character cannot be compromised.

“And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.”

Genesis 17:1

Several years later when Jesus Christ came He reemphasize on it during His earthly ministry.

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”

Matthew 5:48

Character is a powerful force that a man can possess to win the heart of men and God both on earth and in heaven. If you must go far in life building a dependable character is highly indispensable.
In the next edition we shall be looking at why character is important and how we can build it with time.

Memory Verse:

Walking With Integrity Of The Heart – Triumphal Meal.

Anchor Text:

“But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife. But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, Lord, wilt thou slay also a righteous nation? Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency of my hands have I done this. And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.” Genesis 20:3-6

We are living in a generation whereby man is desperate to commit wickedness and evil against their fellow.

“The hearts is deceitful above all thing things desperately wicked who can know it.” Jeremiah 17:9

Men and women of God are common in our time but men and women of integrity are scarce . It is common in our time where man of God is comfortable sleeping with members, member against member, father defiling daughter, boss in office sleeping with fellow staff for promotion and favour .How can you claimed that you are born again, Spirit filled yet lack integrity of heart. The true image of God is integrity.

“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” Numbers 23:19

“For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” Malachi 3:6

No circumstances or temptations can change the personality of God in fact God can do all things but he cannot do evil.

Who is the man of integrity?

No circumstances or temptations can change the personality of God in fact God can do all things but he cannot do evil.

Who is the man of integrity?

A man of integrity is the man who lives in Sodom where adultery and fornication is the order of the day but he will never be found guilty.
A man of integrity is the man whose master entrusted every things under his control yet he will never betrayed him in his absence no matter the pressure .
A man of integrity is the man who lives in Government house or presidency with all manner of influence and connections yet he will never compromise his faith amidst temptations and opportunities.
Show me a man of integrity and I will show a man that has prepared a future for his children.

“The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.” Proverbs 20:7

Though we are living in a wicked world where there is a moral decadence in the society however amidst all these evils in the land God still has a standard which He cannot bend irrespective of what is happening around us.
God still reserve and preserve his trusted children who have not defile nor compromise their faith.

“Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.” 1 Kings 19:18

What is Integrity?

Integrity is the quality of being honest or upright in day to day activities.
Quality of having good character and strong principles.
Walking with God and working for God required a man of integrity of the heart.

“But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7

Though the harvest is plenty and the labourer are few yet God can never compromise His standard. The standard for recruitment in the kingdom workforce remain same in Old Testament and New Testament.

God told Abraham in Genesis 17:1 “And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.”

Jesus Christ came and emphasized on the same standard.

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:48

Nothing can influence the standard and the choice of God regarding his relationship with man therefore God is still searching for a man of integrity in the land despite the high level of wickedness and iniquities .
Above all, the whole world including religious body, private and public sectors are looking for men and women of dependable character.

Memory Verse:

Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee. Proverbs 25:21

Striking Point:

Men and women of God are common but men and women of integrity are scarce.

Prayer Point:

Father please grant me grace to walk with you with a perfect heart in the name of Jesus.

Jesus Is the Greatest Man Who Ever Walked The Face Of the Earth.

And it is a great joy and even honor to see the world systems that have stolen his glory for so long finally acknowledging him and giving him the glory he deserves and that is rightly his.

Hillsong Worship’s Song, “What a Beautiful Name” which is a song worshipping and glorifying the Lord Jesus took home an award ahead of so many other songs that could have taken the award.

Indeed like Jenn Johnson of Bethel Music sings in another powerful song, titled, “Mention Of Your Name“, 

“At the mention of your name

Every chain will break

I know everything will change

Jesus, just the whisper of your name

Will silence wind and waves.”

There is incredible, remarkable power in the name of Jesus.

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 

16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 

17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 

18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

Colossians 1:15-18

Lyrics of What a Beautiful Name from the Album Let There Be Light Sang by Brooke Fraser of  Hillsong Worship

You were the Word at the beginning
One With God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in Creation
Now revealed in You our Christ
What a beautiful Name It is
What a beautiful Name It is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a beautiful Name It is
Nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name It is
The Name of Jesus
You didn’t want Heaven without us
So Jesus, You brought Heaven down
My sin was great, Your Love was greater
What could separate us now
What a Wonderful Name it is
What a Wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a Wonderful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

How sweet is Your name, Lord, how Good You are
Love to sing in the name of the Lord, Love to sing for you all?
Death could not hold You, the veil tore before You
You silenced the boast, of sin and grave
The heavens are roaring, the Praise of Your glory
For You are raised to Life again
You have no rival, You have no equal
Now and forever, God You reign
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name, above all Names
What a powerful Name it is
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King

Nothing can stand against
