1. THE VISION WITH THE HE-MARRIED AND SHE-MARRIED
My dear brother and my dear sister!
If there is a reason for me to write this book, here is this reason:
Lord wants for all Christian families for be raised in positions above the devil! Since, the time is deceitful now and the devil wishes for as many as possible people to begin to live with one and the same stamp upon their hearts:
This is frightful! This is cruel! This is the sorrowful conclusion from some human chess of fates, in which pawns and kings, officers and queens are frivolously being moved. I know that there is no good for any man out of God. I also know that the more the wrong marriage are getting, the more the number of divorces will be getting. Therefore, personally led by Lord Jesus Christ, I want to reveal you in this first chapter the reasons for the fatal consequences in lots of families and mostly – in the Christian families.
As you already understood from the preface of this book, there was some total incomprehension of the family covenant. People do not know why they stand before the pulpit and why they get married. The men have not clear target and a vision for their matrimony. They want that Lord would bless their marriage, but after that, they preferred being left in peace. They want to live in one invented notion of matrimony, where there are lots of rights and no duties. Therefore, destruction and alienation, jealousy and suspicion, apathy and boredom come into many families very soon; as if their notion, by which they have looked at the dreamed partner, has become a pink balloon, burst since long, and the reality is already unacceptable. Then, such men no longer live in the name of any cause, but in the name of compromises. This is very sad and painful. This is degradation, which is getting greater with every passing day.
I understood by my Lord that the most splendid things always stood in the beginning. Since, He is the Beginning Itself. In the very beginning, He has testified to Himself in such a way that everybody, who would like to love Him, can not but being really inspired by such a beginning. I do not intend to relate you the life of Abraham and Sarah. You have read the Bible and you know well their story. However, have you seen what is hidden in the family of Abraham and Sarah? Have you noticed that This One, Who called His chosen man out of Ur of the Chaldeans, laid in his life a new foundation, a covenant of faithfulness and purity? Have you seen that Abraham was beforehand Abram, as well as Sarah was beforehand Sarai? You will understand lots of the secrets of the family covenant in this book; however, I do not want to anticipate the way of the revelations themselves. Therefore, let me give you the words of my Lord Jesus Christ, so as He spoke them to my heart:
“Stefan, do you have the faith to comprehend that, as there are heavenly men, so there are earth men, too; and, as there is heavenly family, so there is earth family, too?”
“Yes, Lord! I have the faith to comprehend that. Apostle Paul himself had told that the first man was of the dust of the earth, and the second man was from Heaven…”
“Then, be sensible and wise to realize that God’s benevolence in the family and matrimony come upon the heavenly men, and the curse and doom pursue and overtake the earth men. As the family covenant of the heavenly people has its own marks, so the families of the earth men have their distinguishing features. Here, I am going to reveal to you what the distinguishing marks of the earth people and their families are, and you should better describe everything you are to see…”
After the words of the Lord, a vision appeared in front of my eyes. I could see a man and a woman, stood vis-à-vis. They were looking each other at their eyes and were smiling. They were a pair of lovers. Then, Lord told me:
“See that the man from this vision looks at the woman, and the woman looks at the man. Tell Me now, if the man had started walking along the way, where would he have reached to?”
“He would have reached to the woman, my Lord!” – I answered. And Lord asked me again:
“And if the woman had started going along the way with her feet, where would she have reached to?”
“To the man, of course!” – I replied again. Then, Lord said:
“As you have already been convinced, the man in this vision looks at the woman and the woman looks at the man. The way of the man leads to the woman, and the way of the woman leads to the man. Now, imagine that this man and this woman decide to get married and look at this in the vision itself…”
I looked again in the vision and I saw how wedding rings appeared over the heads of the man and the woman; these rings joined them side by side and they kept looking each other face to face. Then, Lord told me:
“Look and see how the vision will continue! Since, the man will surely want to go in his own way, as well as the woman will want to follow her own way, too…”
I looked at the vision and I saw that both the man and the woman began to stumble each against other, because he was walking in one direction, and she was following the direction, contrary to his own. All of a sudden, the bodies escaped and each one took the contrary direction, even though they had still held their hands together. Finally, they set their hands free, because the man strongly wished to follow his own way, and the woman longed for going in her own. It happened that they separated, since their hands could no longer remain together. Then, I asked the Lord:
“Jesus! What is going here? There is no trace of the first amorousness. Were not the man and the woman looking each other at their eyes? Why did they pass each other? And why did their ways opposed to each other?”
The answer of Jesus openly struck me. However, these were exactly His words:
“They separated, because they were looking each other at their eyes. The man was striving for the woman until he received her, and the woman was striving for the man until she received him. But when anybody has already overcome his aim, the goes further – to the next aim. That is why they both reached to the rupture…”
“My Lord! Does this mean that they should not look each other at their eyes? Does this mean that they should not fall in love with each other?”
“No, Stefan! In this vision, you only examine the tragedy of the earth men and their earth matrimonies. Since, the matrimony of this man and this woman was not laid upon the foundation of the true love…”
“And what is true love like, Lord?” – I asked. This time, Jesus replied:
“True love is this love, at which the lovers are not looking each other at their eyes, but instead, they are both looking at the right direction. If the man and the woman were looking at one and the same direction, they would hold their hands together and would go along their way. True love is joining of both ways in one common way; it is not the crash of the ways one against the other.
Now, look at the next events in the vision. When a woman appeared in the way of a man and he decides that she is the chosen one of his heart, then, this man says to himself:
“I am going to marry her!”
And when he did that, he says:
“I got married!”
In the same manner, when a man appeared in the way of a woman and she decides that he is the chosen one of her heart, then, this woman says:
“I am going to marry him!”
And when she did that, she says:
“I got married!”
Tell Me now, My boy, what these confessions testify to? What does it mean for him to marry her and for her to marry him?”
“Lord, when a man takes a woman for his wife, he marries her; and when a woman takes a man for her husband, she marries him!”
“This is only the earth regard! This is merely an earth explanation, characteristic of an earth man! The spiritual explanation is different and it says that the he-married falls under the power of a woman, and the she-married falls under the power of a man. Tell Me then:
Does God want for the women to be under the power of men?
Does He want for the men to be under the power of women?
Is there men and women, getting married, in the family covenant, given by My Father?”
“Lord, I am afraid there is a very great depth in Your words; so, I could not understand them. Apostle Paul himself was talking about the men and the women, who were getting married. He told about them:
“An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs – how he can please the Lord. But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world – how he can please his wife – and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world – how she can please her husband…” (1 Corinthians 7:32-34)
Listening to my words, Jesus added:
“Do you understand now that it is God’s perfect Will for the man and the woman to be unmarried? Since, the married man surely pleases his wife, and the married woman pleases her husband…”
“Then, Lord, how would be there a family covenant? How would be there a family if the man and the woman are not married?”
“There would really be a true family if the married man cared for God’s deed. So, he would be like unmarried man, since he does not please his wife. So, there would be a holy matrimony before My Father, if the married woman is holy in body and spirit and cares for God’s things. So, in his behaviour, she would be like a virgin before the Lord. Therefore, look at the words of Paul in the same his message:
“What I mean, brothers, is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they had none; those who mourn, as if they did not; those who are happy, as if they were not; those who buy something, as if it were not theirs to keep; those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away…” (1 Corinthians 7:29-31)
Do you know what means for you to have wife as if you had none? It means for you to live before God as one, who has given himself, his wife and the whole his family for the Holy God’s purpose! Only in this way, you can withstand against the spirit of the world. Only in this way, you will escape the terrible doom of the word “married”. Since, where people get married, there, they are divorced, too. However, if God is your Lord, Whom you have given your spirit, soul and body, it is far from you to be married, even if you have a family. And it is far from the woman in your life to be married, even if she is your wife…”
“Then, what are we, Lord, in Your eyes? What should all married people be unless they want to put the barrier of the worldly spirit before their hearts?”
Jesus smiled and told me:
“They should only be joined in Spirit! Remember this word; it is God’s one. My Father does not marry any man or woman. My Father joins them! Since, in His eyes, both the man and woman, submitted to the family covenant, become one flesh. Tell Me then:
If the man and the woman are one flesh in God’s eyes, should this flesh be married? Are not both them one flesh, just because God has joined them to do His Will? And how should they do His Will?”
I have no need to think any longer, because God’s Grace has made the anointing in my heart very powerful. So, I answered:
“Jesus! One of God’s prophets clearly enough revealed to us the Will of Father for the men, joined by Him. This prophet wrote the very exact God’s words:
“Another thing you do: You flood the LORD’s altar with tears. You weep and wail because he no longer pays attention to your offerings or accepts them with pleasure from your hands. You ask, “Why?” It is because the LORD is acting as the witness between you and the wife of your youth, because you have broken faith with her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant. Has not made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth. “I hate divorce,” says the LORD God of Israel, “and I hate a man’s covering himself with violence as well as with his garment,” says the LORD Almighty. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith…” (Malachi 2:13-16)
“See then that My Father talks about a she-partner and a wife of the family covenant! See that My Father is seeking godly offspring! And there is offspring only there, where there is God’s benevolence.
You, however, do you know what the offspring of the earth family is? Do you know what child is being born in those families, which do not look at the Lord, Who is their Power and fire, but which are looking far below?
Look at the testimonies in the life of Abraham and Sarah!
Even if they were a family, put under God’s family covenant, they stumbled however, so that their life might be a lesson for those, who are sensible and wise…”
After the last words of Jesus, the vision with the man and the woman stopped, and I took up writing the precious words of my Lord. I appeared them, so that your heart might be confirmed.
