And they lived happily ever after…

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Covenant, Marriage, restoration

A marriage is like a long trip in a tiny rowboat: if one passenger starts to rock the boat, the other has to steady it; otherwise they will go to the bottom together.

–David Robert Reuben

Success in marriage is more than finding the right person: it is being the right person.

–Robert Browning

These two quotes are true. David Robert Reuben and Robert Browning were not the first people to say something about marriage. Much has been said about marriage. Many books have been written about the subject, yet if we look at the divorce statistics we see something is seriously wrong. I believe one reason for marriages not lasting, is because instead of looking to YHVH’s word for guidance in marriage, people tend to look to pop psychology for help and answers.

Lots of instruction on marriage can be found in scripture. In this article, we will look a bit deeper into what marriage is. There are certain aspects about marriage that make this union unique.

Forgive yourself

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Alternative Healing, restoration, Training in righteousness

Do you love yourself? Do you even like yourself? If you answered no, why not? If you were to think long and hard, you may find this feeling towards yourself rooted in unforgiveness. Many of us, myself included, struggle to forgive ourselves. We may have done things in the past, we regret and may even live with the consequences of those past sins. This may cause guilt, lack of self-esteem and even self-hatred. Did you know that this self-hatred gives your body permission to destroy itself?

Uncleanness and separation…are these commandments still for us?

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Training in righteousness

In our previous post, we wrote on the law of Niddah and some other relevant commandments. We have learned how uncleanness brought about by normal physiological functions or illness can cause separation. This compelled us to question the spiritual implications of this. We know there is a physical and a spiritual side to everything. Sometimes, what we perceive as negative in the fleshy realm can actually be beneficial or positive on either a physical or spiritual level. Is this the same with uncleanness? Furthermore, knowing that there is a physical and a spiritual realm, how does physical uncleanness affect us spiritually, if at all?
