Make sure he knows God. Make sure he loves God. Make sure his priorities are that of the Lord. That way, you will serve God gladly and not be persecuted all the days of your marriage.

You really don’t want to get married to someone who tells you after your wedding that you should try out a threesome! You really don’t want to get married to a man who says he loves it in the anal.  

That is out rightly demonic and as a wife, you don’t have to risk your health and life! Seek counsel and don’t die in silence! You really don’t want to get married to a man who brings out ropes and other sadistic objects and says he doesn’t really feel it until he ties you up!

For those who are already married and are caught in this thicket of obeying God and disobeying him or obeying him and disobeying God, thereby kicking against the pricks, I want to offer a piece of advice.

First of all, the scripture says you should submit to your own husband. So we see right away that it is wrong for you to listen to one man, maybe your boss, against your husband.

You are to submit to your own husband, not another woman’s husband. Your boss is another woman’s husband.  

So when he is making advances at you, you are to gladly and boldly disobey him. You don’t try to keep a job and then lose your joy!

Then the next thing is that you are to submit as unto the Lord.

What does that mean?

Let’s take a look at other translations.

Wives understand and support your husbands in ways that show your support for Christ. – Ephesians 5:22 (MSG) 

Whatever will not show your support for God should not be done.

You should politely, “submissively” refuse anything that will violate your conscience, that will set you against your maker and that will give access to the hordes of hell to plummet your destiny!  

For example, he asks you to follow him to a herbalist. That is a direct affront between the kingdom of light and darkness. You are probably the last hope of that family and the last ounce of strength the children are looking up to, so you refuse! If you “submit” to such, it would not be as unto the Lord, and that might put the whole family in eternal danger.

 So, what do you do in such cases?

You seek counsel. You pray in the Spirit. You keep walking in love and refuse to enter into strife.

If you do this, you will eventually have the victory and your husband will respect you more for this because he will realize it later. But if you listen to him, he will blame you when he realizes his mistakes; he will blame you for not stopping him from plunging the whole family into regrettable depths!

I will not miss it in marriage

Oh Lord, lead me to that person you have designed for me

Wives understand and support your husbands in ways that show your support for Christ. – Ephesians 5:22 (MSG)
