NOT QUICKLY BROKEN

Ecclesiastes 4:12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

The Scene: a 3 stranded rope, symbol of a Christian marriage, made up of the husband and wife and the strand in the middle, representing God.

God intended for a union of one man and one woman with God holding this union together, so that together they could reproduce, through child bearing, and expand God’s kingdom: the worship of our heavenly Father being one of the main reasons we are created. Another purpose for God’s kingdom is that we are called to give Him praise.

Isaiah 62:5 “As a young man marries a maiden, so will your sons marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will God rejoice over you.”

This scripture is a type and shadow of Jesus Christ our Yeshua Ha-Mashiach (Messiah) the bridegroom, and His Church, the bride.

Hosea 2:19-20 “I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord.”

These words spoken by Hosea, thought to be nearly 800 years before Jesus’ birth!
