Some years ago, I sat down to counsel a middle-aged man whom I have known since his boyhood. He confessed to me that no matter how instantaneously he put certain vile temptations out his mind during his waking hours, when he was asleep filthy scenes ran riot in his dreams, and, overwhelming his desire to flee from the filthy scenes, he almost always found himself indulging in the sinful acts his subconscious mind conjured up.
Observant Bible believers have noticed the dramatic increase in supernatural events reported around the world. Sightings of UFOs by men in positions of government authority and abduction claims by many other people of credible reputation have been around for some decades. But in recent years the phenomenon of alien sightings has intensified to the extent that both the Catholic church and the US government have begun to admit not just the possibility but the probability of contact with aliens.
The far-right politics refers to the social movement that ‘supports supremacy of certain individuals or groups deemed to be innately superior who are to be more valued than those deemed to be innately inferior’. The most extreme-right movements, such as the Nazis, have pursued oppression and genocide against groups of people on the basis of their alleged inferiority.
I remember reading Billy Graham’s book ‘World Aflame’, when I was a young man, about the coming judgment of God on earth. I don’t remember now what he wrote of America, but I have with me the following quote of his wife, Ruth, who after reading a chapter in that book about the extremely sinful life of the people, told her husband: “Billy, if God doesn’t come soon and bring judgment upon the United States, He’s going to have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah!”
This 1960s song was a world hit, and is probably the most loved song among Presley’s fans. Perhaps people everywhere, at some point in their lives, could feel their own heart resonating with the emotions so poignantly conveyed through this song by The King, as the singer is admiringly known among his fans.
I wish this message was directed only to couples who do not know Christ and his teachings. But sadly, this message is meant for people who consider themselves Christians and who are confident their marriage is on the right track but who do not yet have the understanding of certain marriage-destroying acts that they may be practicing in their private lives.
The passionate love that a person had for their spouse when they married can wane within a few years, or after many years, to the point that it becomes an emotionless relationship – unless it is deliberately kept aflame continuously. This is a most vital truth that every person planning to marry, or already married, should keep foremost in their consciousness.
When I was a young husband, I read a lot of manuals on having a great marriage, written by 'relationship experts’. There were many good things I learned from both secular and Christian writings and preachings on marriage. But far more than what I gained from them were vital insights that I did not gain from any of them.
You cannot change your husband or wife, but if you don't give up on your spouse, you can eventually have a marriage happier than you ever dreamed of. This message is for those who are unhappy with their spouse, and for those who are not fully happy with their wife or husband. This message will also give vital understanding about married life to those who are not yet married.
