Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

January 2 - Morning

"That is why a man leaves his father and mother and
is united to his wife, and they become one flesh."

- Genesis 2:24

Sunset on the Sea of Galilee; Click to go to next devotion  

When a man takes a wife the authority of the father and mother over their married son is broken,
for that man has become the head of his own home. Also, the wife is no the main focus for the husband. Even though the fifth commandment says “to honor your father and mother” this
command takes second place to honoring the wife and the new home. The two concepts are
not incompatible, but the wife and the marriage take precedent over the married son’s childhood home. The man does not bring a wife into his father’s home (to live in the basement), but neither
does this verse say a man leaves his father’s family and joins the family of his wife. The point
is that upon marriage the married couple are on their own and under their own authority.
A new family has begun and a new home has been established.

The word “united” used in “united to his wife, and they become one flesh” is the Hebrew word
dabaq. It places emphasize on the bond and covenant of this new relationship. To “become
one flesh” is not a reference to the sexual union, but is a statement that a new unit, or a
new identity, has been created. The married man and his wife maintain their status as individuals,
but upon marriage they create a new identity that binds them together socially in the kingdoms
of man, spiritually in the view of the heavenly realms, emotionally in their souls and, indeed, physically.  Marriage creates a new union that had never existed before and it is to be
recognized and honored by all mankind.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"America’s greatness has been the greatness of a free people who shared certain moral commitments. Freedom without moral commitment is aimless and promptly self-destructive."
- John W. Gardner
Something to Ponder??

"I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give.
I am afraid the only safe rule
is to give more than we can spare. In other words, if our expenditure on comforts, luxuries, amusements, etc.,
is up to the standard common among those with the same income as our own, we are probably giving away too little. If our charities do not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say they are too small. There ought to be things we should like to do and cannot do because our charitable expenditures exclude them."
- C.S. Lewis

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information
'Esher (Hb) - Happy (Eng) - 'esher is the Hebrew word translated "happy" and "blessed."
These two English terms are very difficult, if not impossible, to separate in the Old Testament.
To be ‘esher meant to be happy and so blessed, just like ‘esher describes the blessed
man who was thus happy. The root word of ‘esher is ‘shr which means “to go straight,”
and “to advance.” The image is that the man who is going straight,
and so, progessing, is blessed and happy.

The Pool of Bethesda where John records Jesus' healing the lame man on the Sabbath in John 5:1-9 has been located. Until the 1800's this pool had not been located and "scholars" used this lack of evidence to support their argument that the Gospel of John was written not written by John, but instead they claimed it had been written in the second century years after John's death by someone who did not have first-hand information about Jerusalem. The discovery of the Pool of Bethesda, and other finds, supports the view that John did write the Gospel of John in the first century.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I realize the responsibility and the authority the union of marriage gives the married couple.
I will honor my marriage and encourage marriages around me to function as unions
established by God with rights and responsibilities.
  "My son, if you accept my words  and store up my commands within you,
 turning your ear to wisdom
    and applying your heart to understanding...then you will understand what is right and just and fair - every good path." - Proverbs 2:1,2,9

This is the southwest corner of the Temple Mount under the street and Robinson's arch. This is the lowest courses of the Temple Mount retaining wall and they are built on the bedrock. The bosses of the ashlars were left unfinished because they were place below the street level and would never be seen. (click on image for larger size)
