We remember and celebrate our marriages this 2nd Sunday of September through to 2nd Sunday of October.
In the spring of 2007, Dennis believes that he was given a vision for the ministry of 'Marriage Week' was 'visioned' in 2007 and then clarity on the dates after a season of prayer came in early August 2009. Through this period of prayer I was made conscious by the Lord of "My festivals" and the figure "9" and then taken back to the "Vision/Strategy" statement that I recorded the previous year and that was very clear showing the month of September. Interestingly the Lords Festival of Trumpets etc (Lev. 23) in the month of Tishrei in the Hebrew calendar, this equates to September/October in our calendar.
We were "distracted" from the original vision and come back to that and set Marriage Week to start on the second Sunday of September each year.
Quickly, we were surrounded by a coalition of Christian broadcasters and other ministries/organisations that held the same biblical values for marriage. All working to forge a network of Christian churches and other Christian individuals and organisations across Australia who will work together to offer positive resources during Marriage Week and through the year that will help couples re-affirm the value of and commitment to their marriage.
We welcome and support all who have the same underlying values see https://marriageweek.org.au
"The importance of Christian marriage as a symbol of God's covenantal faithfulness to his people-and a witness to the future union of Christ and his bride-will only grow in significance as the wider Western culture diminishes both the meaning and actual practice of marriage. Marriage itself will become a witness to the gospel..." [Mark Regnerus, Ph.D., is the author of Forbidden Fruit]
Our marriages are not private matters. Our children, gain emotional security and a myriad of benefits from our marriage, our love and union. Our marriages matter to our extended family. They matter to our employers. They matter to society. They are the fabric that holds families together. On average married people live longer and have good relationships with their children; families enjoy better physical health, married men earn more money.
Marriage Week is a great time to reassess and invest in our own marriages and to encourage others. A time to see that it is more than a piece of paper, a word, or a contract. Marriage is a relational institution, between a man and a woman, that makes them one entity - a great team with God as the team leader.
"Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day." Genesis 1:26-31 [ESV] http://trafficbuilder2.com
"And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed." Genesis 2:22-24 [ESV]
"He (Jesus) answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:4-6 [ESV]
"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17 [ESV]
