Wives— Marriage


There are many good-natured jokes circulating about the 
creation of Eve. In one of them, Adam said to the Lord, 
“God, I love life in the garden, but I sometimes feel 
lonesome. Can you give me someone to be with me?” 
When the Lord asked man what he wanted, Adam began 
to describe his preferences. Then God said, “Adam, what 
you are asking might cost you an arm and a leg.” Adam 
said, “Lord, what would you give me for a rib?”

Praise the Lord, He gave man a wife, the best earthly 
companion he could have. Someone once said that God 
made woman from the side of man so she could walk with 
him—not from his feet to trample upon him, or from his 
head to control his life. But again, from his side, in order 
to be his companion, counselor, and friend. Does anyone 
have the wisdom and authority to revamp God’s design 
for the family? Let’s look at some Scriptures about wives.


1. Genesis 2:18–25.

Why did God give Adam a wife? 
What are some ways sin has distorted God’s design for family life?


2. Genesis 3:1–20.

How did the devil become involved in Eve’s life? 
Why do you think he tempted Eve instead of Adam? 
What does Eve’s name mean?


3. Genesis 24:1–4.

Where did Abraham send his servant to get a wife for Isaac? 
Why didn’t Isaac marry someone who lived nearby? 
Why is it important whom we choose to marry?


4. Job 2:9–10.

What counsel did Job’s wife give him? Why? 
What did Job say to her? 
What was Job not guilty of in this exchange? 
What do you think of Job’s comment about what we accept from God?


5. Proverbs 18:22.

Why is finding a wife a good thing? 
What blessings can come from God when a man marries? 
How can wives exemplify godliness in their marriage?


6. Ezekiel 24:14–18.

How was Ezekiel judged? 
How did the Lord refer to Ezekiel’s wife? 
Why was he not allowed to mourn her as was the custom? 
Was the incident a foretaste of loss among the people? 
Study the context of these verses.


7. Malachi 2:13–16.

Why do you think marriages failed so often among the ancient Jews? 
How does God feel about divorce? 
How can God help when family life falls apart?


8. Matthew 22:23–30.

What did the Sadducees ask Jesus? 
What did Jesus say about marriage in heaven? 
In what way will we be like the angels in heaven?


9. Titus 2:4–5.

What is one of the roles of a wife in the church? 
What does it mean to be subject to your husband? 
Discuss 1 Corinthians 7:3–5, 10–16, and Ephesians 5:21–25. 
What does submission to one another really mean?


10. 1 Peter 3:3–7.

What did Simon Peter write about a wife’s true beauty? 
How can wives attain this, and how can husbands help them?

Boom! President Trump Issues Warning To Deep State: “You’ll Be Surprised At The Names Of People Involved In The Corruption”

President Trump joined Judge Jeanine Pirro by phone last night for an extensive interview.

The president sounded very upbeat in the interview and hopeful that Democrats will act soon on border security and end to their government shutdown. “We’re doing very well with China. We’re doing well with North Korea. You know I was dealt a very tough hand.” On the shutdown President Trump said, “They think it’s politics. I think it’s very bad politics. I think the country wants to have protection at the border.”

The President also discussed the ongoing deep state witch hunt of him and his campaign and administration. Judge Pirro then asked the president if he has ever been actively working in Russia. “I think it’s the most insulting thing I’ve ever been asked. I think it’s the most insulting thing I’ve ever had written. And if you read the article you see that they found absolutely nothing.”

President Trump took a swipe at Jeff Bezos, “Washington Post that’s basically the lobbyist for Amazon. He uses that, Bezos has bigger problems than anybody right now.”

Then President Trump dropped this bomb. “The whole Russia thing is a hoax… Everybody knows it… Wait til you see how it all ends up. You watch. McCabe, Lisa Page, Strzok.

You watch. Including some others I should not name. I better not. You watch. It would make front page news if I do. You’ll be surprised at the names of the people involved in the corruption.“

Now THAT is some real news!
