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?

TOTAL BULLSHIT!: FBI Arrests Leader Of Militia Group Stopping Illegal Aliens In New Mexico

The FBI on Saturday arrested Larry Hopkins, the leader of the militia group that is stopping ‘asylum seekers’ after they illegally cross over the US border into New Mexico.

Hopkins was arrested shortly after the anti-American ACLU accused the militia group of kidnapping and illegally detaining the aliens.

Reuters reported:

Hopkins, 69, also known as Johnny Horton, was arrested in Sunland Park, New Mexico, on a federal complaint charging him with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

“We’re not worried about it, he’s going to be cleared,” said Jim Benvie, a spokesman for the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), blaming his arrest on political pressure from Lujan Grisham.

Hopkins is the “national commander” of the UCP, which has had around half a dozen members camped out on a rotating basis near Sunland Park since late February.

More than 300 ‘asylum seekers’ trying to illegally cross the US border this weekend surrendered to an armed militia of New Mexico citizens comprised of ex-cops and veterans.

This is what happens when the US government doesn’t even uphold its most basic commitment to the American people, to secure the borders from invaders.

The militia then handed over the detained aliens to US border patrol.

The militia immediately came under attack — PayPal and GoFundMe banned the group of armed citizens from being able to raise money.

In a statement to BuzzFeed, PayPal claimed that the group violated their “Acceptable Use Policy.”

“The account associated with United Constitutional Patriots has been closed due to a violation of our Acceptable Use Policy,” the spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. “We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory.”

Mark Cheney, who identified himself to BuzzFeed as the “commander” of the militia, said that the bans have “killed” their efforts.

“They killed us,” Cheney said. “I have to find some other way for people to donate.”

There is a crisis at the US-Mexico border and the Democrats and activist judges are fighting President Trump at every turn.

In March alone, over 100,000 illegal aliens were detained by US border patrol.

According to reports, over 1.5 million illegal aliens will enter the United States in 2019 if the surge continues at the current rate.

Instead of arresting the illegal alien invaders, the FBI arrests an American man who is defending the borders. Let that sink in.
