Read: Proverbs 5:15-21 Open Heaven 6 June 2019
15 Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.
16 Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets.
17 Let them be only thine own, and not strangers’ with thee.
18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
19 Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.
20 And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?
21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings.

Whichever way you look at it, marriage is honourable, and
this is why those who have rebelled against God in their sexual orientation want
to cloak their dishonourable lifestyle with the honour God as bestowed on
marriage. Despite what the world is trying to turn it into, the institution of
marriage remains God’s perfect arrangement to meet the needs of companionship
between a man and a woman who are adults. If discovering and choosing to love a
person is beautiful and courtship is exciting, solemnising a union in a wedding
ceremony is divine.
After a couple is joined together in holy matrimony and God’s
blessings are pronounced on them, they become partners in a sacred institution.
The sanctity of marriage is not a figment of human imagination. God indeed
designed marriage to be holy, and so it should be approached with great respect
and due veneration. This is why today’s memory verse describes marriage as
honourable and advises against defiling it, with a strong warning that God’s
judgment will fall on anyone who indulges in sexual immorality in marriage.

Another reason why God created the institution of marriage is the need to satisfy sexual desire within an environment of accountability and responsibility. God wants married couples to find sexual satisfaction in marriage (1st Corinthians 7:2). In His infinite wisdom, He provided marital sex as a wise alternative to infidelity and sexual disorder. Today’s Bible reading says you should drink water out of your own cistern, meaning that sexual thirst should only be satisfied within the privacy of marriage. Furthermore, sexual body parts and sexual acts are not public property to be shared with strangers (Proverbs 5:16-17).
“Strangers” in this context refers to anyone who has not “known” you through marriage (Genesis 4:1). Only within marriage did God bless uninhibited sexual joys (Proverbs 5:18-19). Take note that God deliberately used the words “at all times” and “always” in Proverbs 5:19, to remove limits from a married couple’s sexual enjoyment of each other (1st Corinthians 7:3-5).
Brethren, please abstain from sex outside marriage, for God has promised to judge all fornicators and adulterers (Hebrews 13:4). Your momentary sinful pleasure is liable for eternal judgement, so ask yourself, is it really worth it (Proverbs 5:20)? He who created all things in heaven and earth for His own pleasure has every right to guide human affairs in conformity with His supreme purpose. Think on these things, and may God engrave them on the tablet of your heart in Jesus’ Name.
