Marriages experience conflict, which when not resolved leads to crisis, which if contiued invariably births catastrophe! Every marriage has its ups and downs, good times to enjoy and hard times to endure (Phil 4:11-13).
Like the two sides of a coin, pain and pleasure are what make a marriage enduring, strong, balanced and successful. What on earth can make a success out of a failed marriage? Or what make sweet marriages turn sour?
A woman I regard so much had a wedding that was greatly celebrated and widely talked about. I have a DVD that captures her beautiful wedding ceremony. About six years later, she filed for a divorce because her husband hit her with an object. The marriage crashed like a house of cards. Sad news!
The Scripture says, 'Didn't the LORD make you one with your wife? In body and spirit you are his. And what does he want? Godly children from your union. So guard your heart; remain loyal to the wife your youth.
"FOR I HATE DIVORCE!" says the LORD, the God of Israel. "TO DIVORCE YOUR WIFE IS TO OVERWHELM HER WITH CRUELTY" says the LORD of Heaven's Armies. "So guard your heart; do not be unfaithful to your wife" ' (Malachi 2:15-16, NLT).
My mother almost lost her marriage to strange women because of one or more of what we are about to discuss here.
Paul warned, "Put on God's whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the STRATEGIES and the DECEITS of the devil" (Eph 6:11, AMP, see also 2Cor 2:11, AMP).
Satan may use 3 different major strategies consistently against one marriage but 5 or more against another marriage. You have to study these 12 things that can make or break your marriage and deal with all the strategies Satan has been using repeatedly to fight your marriage.
ISSUE OF LOVE
AGAPE is the Greek word for God-kind of love while EROS is a modern Greek word for love between husband and wife. Both are needed for your marriage to work. But agape must come first, then eros.
Agape-love is the answer to strife, unforgiveness, selfishness, envy, malice, slander, disrespect, adultery and so on in marriages. It prevents physical, verbal, emotional and sexual abuse.
I will encourage you to read aloud daily 1 Corinthians 13:4- 8 (AMPLIFIED BIBLE) and think deeply on it every day as well. In fact, type, print and paste it on the wall in your bedroom, sitting room and so on.
That Scripture says, "Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.
It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].
It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything without weakening.
Love never fails" (Please see also Eph 5:25-30, 1Jn 4:19.)
ISSUE OF SEX
10 THINGS EVERY SPOUSE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SEX
i. It is a God-ordained means of cutting and renewing the covenant of marriage (1Cor 6:15-16, Mat 19:4-6).
ii. It is intended to be practised only with your spouse and in the presence of nobody including your children above or around the age of accountability (Pro 5:15-18, Eph 5:15).
iii. God intends it to take mutual agreement between husband and wife without either of the couple being forced (1Cor 7:3-4).
iv. God intends that they should not defraud each other of their conjugal right to sex so that they would not open the door to Satan (1Cor 7:5, 1Cor 7:2, Jn 10:10).
It is a sin to punish your spouse with sex. Anyone who knows the right thing to do, but refuses to do it commits a sin (James 4:17).
v. It helps intimacy between husband and wife (1Cor 6:15-17).
It brings soul tie. The more they enjoy it in a legitimate marriage, the stronger the legitimate soul tie; but the more they shy away from it, the weaker the soul tie. There is an evil or wrong soul tie through pre-marital or extra-marital sex; and this should be avoided (1Cor 3:16-17, 1Cor 6:17-20, Eccl 10:8).
vi. It should never be spiritualized or seen as something that makes you carnal or less spiritual (Gen 1:27-28).
I remember the story of a "holiness" woman whose husband approached for sex, I think after the wedding ceremony. But because she had the wrong impression that sex in marriage is wrong, she refused her husband his rights; rather she started praying that God would deliver her from [sexual] temptation from her husband. She was being over-righteous!
Solomon warned, "Do not be over overrighteous, neither be overwise why destroy yourself? Do not be overwicked, and do not be a fool why die before your time?
It is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other. The man who fears God will avoid all extremes" (Eccl 7:16-18, NIV).
Turning down an invitation to sex from your spouse without a reasonable excuse opens the door to Satan to frustrate your life and marriage.
vii. God intends that it should be neither too little nor too much but to be moderate (1Cor 7:29, 1Cor 6:12, Gal 5:23; [self control], Pro 25:16, 27).
Some couples may love it once per week. Some others may want it once in two, three, four, or more weeks. Still some others will like it twice in one week. There is no fixed rule here. Just strike a wise balance that will help, and not hinder both of you spiritually, emotionally and physically.
viii. God intends that both of the couple enjoy it and are satisfied each time they do it (Pro 5:19).
If your husband or wife cannot perform well sexually, I will suggest that you see your family doctor, perhaps together or see a sound marriage counsellor together through your pastor's advice or buy him or her one or two good Christian books or CDs on sex.
Neither watch blue films nor read pornographic magazines to learn how to perform better in bed. It will open you up to the spirit of lust and of adultery (Mat 5:28, Pro 6:25).
Both of you should discuss how to improve your sex life. Talk privately about what brings out the best in both of you sexually.
In the past, l was wrongly teaching couples to try different reasonable styles or positions in different unquestionable places with their spouses.
But after a dearly wonderful brother referred me to the testimony of Pst Olugbenga Oladejo based in the U.K., I changed my teaching along this line.
In 2014, the Lord took this pastor to hell and showed him how perverted sexual practices are taking married Christian couples to hell.
God only wants married couples to practise the missionary style on their matrimonial bed with the husband on top of his wife (face-to-face), which is symbolic of a wife submitting to her own husband's authority as the head (Ephesians 5:22-24, Colossians 3:18)!
Please I will strongly recommend that every married couple google or youtube Pastor Olugbenga Oladejo's testimony: A Warning for Married Christian Couples.
[To avoid demonic oppression now on earth and later going to hell fire, please avoid oral sex (sex with mouth), manual sex (sex with hand), anal sex (sex with anus) and object sex (sex with objects like dildo, vibrator, banana, and so on). Practise only penile-vaginal sex in your marriage. Also men should avoid using all sex toys: fleshlight, prostate massager, cock ring, and so on.]
xix. God intends that it should be withheld by mutual agreement of the couple as the need arises (1Cor 7:5, NIV + KJV).
Sometimes for spiritual, medical, surgical or vocational reasons, a couple may have to abstain from sex temporarily by mutual consent.
xx. God intends that the couple should plan their sexual life wisely to prevent unwanted/mistimed pregnancy, unnecessary pains, etc (Eph 5:15-17).
A particular couple did an abortion because of an unwanted pregnancy. So their lives were battered by affliction. Then a man of God saw that blood was the cause of their problem. They had shed innocent blood. Abortion is a sin, even in marriage (Lev 17:11).
ISSUE OF MONEY
The Scripture says, "Money answereth all things If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever" (Eccl 10:19, 1 Tim 5:8, NIV).
Pray that God will give you divine wisdom concerning what to do and how to do it as regards the money issue (Jam 1:5). Study the Bible and good Christian books on:
a) Generating money
b) spending money
c) saving money
Make a request for a free copy of our publication titled: "12 Right Keys to Godly Financial and Material Prosperity" [Now retitled: "Secrets of Prosperity"].
I believe it will help you along this line. You may also get: Money Won't Make You Rich by Sunday Adelaja (but make sure you study all these materials using your Bible as your companion.)
I remember a famous man who shared the sad story of how he turned his wife into a punching bag in the early stage of their marriage. So because he controlled the money bag, he would use it as a weapon to punish his wife. The woman, on the other hand, would use sex as her own weapon against him. Both of them were wrong!
Today, God has helped them to overcome that. You see, it is wrong for a wife to attach receiving money from her husband to sex. She should avoid asking her husband before, during or after sex for money, material things or favour as a condition for sex.
Neither should the husband give his wife money because he wants to have sex with her. By so doing, he has turned her into a "prostitute" who gives sex for money.
So sex between husband and wife must be built on LOVE [both agape and eros], and not on money. Love never fails.
ISSUE OF COMMUNICATION
12 RULES OF COMMUNICATION IN MARRIAGE
1. DON'T HIDE YOUR FEELINGS, DISCUSS THEM WITH YOUR SPOUSE (Mat 23:27-28, NIV, Heb 4:13).
SUMMARY: AVOID PRETENCE

NOTE: please check out in your Bible all these Bible verses that we cannot write out here because of inadequate space.
ISSUE OF AUTHORITY
The husband should not oppress his wife with authority; neither should the wife hijack her husband's authority. God gave the man authority to lead his wife and children successfully to a divine destination. Authority is an indication of higher responsibility.
SEVEN REASONS WHY A WIFE SHOULD SUBMIT TO HER OWN HUSBAND'S AUTHORITY
i. Because her husband is her head or leader (Eph 5:23, 1Cor 11:3).
ii. Because women are gullible or easily deceived (1 Tim 2:11, 14).
iii. Woman was made because of man, not man because of woman (1Cor 11:8-10, NIV, Gen 2:18, 20, 22-23).
iv. It is a command of the Lord (Eph 5:22).
v. Women are weaker vessels [not inferior to man, but in need of a man to lead her by the side] (1Pet 3:7, 1Cor 11:8, NIV).
vi. Woman came from man, not man from woman (1Cor 11:8, NIV, Gen 2:23).
vii. Woman reveals the glory of man just as man reveals the image and glory of God (1Cor 11:7).
ISSUE OF DESTINY
Your destiny is simply God's purpose for your life. A marriage made in heaven is the union of a man and a woman with two agreeable, compatible or identical destinies as one. It becomes a problem if the husband and wife have destinies moving in two opposing directions.
Amos 3:3 (NLT) reads, "Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?"
ISSUE OF CHILDREN
3 MAJOR AREAS OF CHALLENGES ABOUT CHILDREN
i. Childlessness (Gen 16:1-2)
If you truly love your spouse, you will not divorce him or her because you don't have a child yet. Abraham and Sarah waited and waited and waited for long years before God gave them Isaac. My wife and I waited awhile too before our first child was born.
ii. Child bearing (Pro 3:5-6)
If God wants you to have three children, but you choose to have five or more, then you will bring self-inflicted problems on yourself and your family.
On the other hand, if HE wants you to have four, but you choose to have one or two, that will equally attract unpalatable consequences.
iii. Child training
God says, "Train up a child in the way he should go [and in keeping with his individual gift or bent], and when he is old he will not depart from it" (Pro 22:6, AMP).
The children you refuse to train will drain the joy of your marriage. Also, wives should be very careful not to shift the attention ["first love"] due their husbands to their children because this will eventually cause crisis.
ISSUE OF THIRD PARTY
Please study first of all Mat 19:3-9, Amos 3:3, Mat 10:36.
The third party includes: i. relations ii. friends iii. neighbours iv. co-workers v. church members vi. second wife/husband vii. concubine viii. house help
Make it a habit not to report your spouse to the third party. But if it becomes unavoidable, then see your pastor to resolve the issue.
In the New Testament, God says no to having a second wife or husband or a concubine. This will destroy your marriage, your body [perhaps with HIV/AIDS] and will prevent you from making heaven as an adulterer or adulteress (Heb 13:4, 1Cor 6:9-10).
Someone said that if somebody else pleases you (in facial or bodily appearance, even without sexual involvement) more than your spouse, then you have a problem with LUST (Mat 5:28-29, Pro 6:25). That's true.
Many years ago, a woman in FESTAC, Lagos told me that while she travelled, her house help (who was her sister or relation living with them) betrayed her. I knew the couple and the particular house help.
According to her, while she was far away from home, this "house help" took her bath in the bathroom with the door open. So the man of the house tried to correct her to close the door to hide her nakedness from him.
To his surprise, however, this girl of between age 15 and 20 refused, saying that after all he had been watching his wife's nakedness and that her own was not a big deal. Eventually, she seduced the man to sleep with her. The husband confessed to his wife what happened in her absence.
DON'T MAKE A MATURE GIRL OR MAN YOUR HOUSE HELP! BE WISE.
One of the American Christian female role models I respect was associating with an elderly man who divorced his wife, and his son who equally divorced his own wife. So because of the transference of spirit, this woman was influenced to divorce her husband. The spirit of divorce can be transferred to people (Deut 34:9).
God warned us, "Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in troubleBad company corrupts good character" (Pro 13:20; 1Cor15:33, NLT).
ISSUE OF SEPARATION
Please study first of all Gen 2:18 and Ex 18:2, 5.
Separation is staying apart without divorce. So while separated couples are still married to one another, divorced couples are no longer married to one another.
Separation may be for a brief or long period of time. The latter is very dangerous and unwise, and must be prevented as much as one can. It reduces one to a married but 'single' fellow.
While working in Kano as an assistant site engineer, I was separated from my wife for a period of time. During this time, I learnt the dangers of prolonged separation from one's spouse.
It was not an easy experience for me. At first, I coped with it. But at a point, I couldn't just bear it any more. So I asked her to join me in the north. So we settled together in Kaduna. That unwise separation could have shattered our relationship if prolonged more than necessary! Thank God for his mercy.
A man told me that while he was working in Kano, his wife whom he had left in the east became pregnant for another man. That made their marriage crash with a divorce, though, he should have forgiven her, and not divorce her.
REASONS FOR SEPARATION
iii. Financial hardship
ISSUE OF MATURITY
The maturity we are considering here is physical, emotional and spiritual. Smith Wigglesworth got busier with his plumbing business until he had little or no time for God.
So he backslid for two years: no more studying God's word and no more prayer time. His carnality would have wrecked his marriage, but God intervened. He once shut his wife out of the house angrily, but she entered through the unlocked front door!
His wife, Polly, showed some maturity by accommodating his raging anger and harsh behavior! Through her love and prayer, Smith found his way back to the Lord. He fasted for days until his zeal for the Lord was restored. He became a sweet loving husband again (1Cor 3:1-3; 1Pet 3:1-2).
The other extreme is to be over-spiritual. Although history tells us that Jennie, the wife of John G. Lake died of physical exhaustion [lack of rest] and poor nutrition, yet one of the challenges John Lake had was that of being over-spiritual for he would isolate himself from others in the room by meditating on spiritual things without letting his wife, children and friends enjoy his company. It destroyed some things.
It will be most fulfilling when the couple has true signs of spiritual, emotional and physical maturity.
You see, marriage is not for boys and girls but for men and women.
ISSUE OF FAITH AND PATIENCE
Please study first of all Heb 11:2, 6 and Heb 6:12-15.
You must relate to your spouse with a growing sense of trust and of endurance. Maybe your wife doesn't cook well, can't take good care of the home, is wasteful, smells bad, looks dirty and awful, dresses like your grandmother, wears the clothing of a prostitute, is lazy, prepares your food late, and so on.
You don't have to send her packing, rather believe in her with the faith of God and work carefully and patiently on her. I have learnt that the word "husband" has a link with "husbandman" or "husbandry" used in agriculture.
You see, according to the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English, a husbandman is "a farmer" while husbandry means "farming or careful management of money and supplies."
So a husband is one who plants seeds (good or bad) in his wife's life as well as in his own life; and harvests whatever he has planted in her life and his.
When I was still in Kaduna, a couple had a misunderstanding to the extent that the wife and all the children left the house with the help of her family members. She packed her things away. It was a hopeless case.
I was troubled in my spirit. So one morning, while praying, the Lord ministered to me from Genesis 3 as a word that would help their situation.
That Scripture says that when Adam and Eve had crisis, God came down and asked Adam (the leader), not Eve (not the assistant leader) a question: "Adam, where are you?" He also judged Adam, Eve and the serpent for their respective actions.
The reason for God's starting his interrogation with Adam is: HE expects a man to man his home well he requires a husband to husband his wife properly. So God expected that man in Kaduna as the husband to put his house in order. And that both of them should accept responsibility for their actions, without shifting the blame to the other party as Adam and Eve did.
I prayed about their case and spoke with both of them at different times what God put in my heart. They thought they would never be reconciled.
After I had left Kaduna for Lagos, this man called me that his wife has come back home. That testimony meant much to me. God be praised for evermore!
Billy Graham endured his wife's early experience in cooking without complaining while she put up with Billy's wrong habits of putting his towel in the wrong place and keeping his desk untidy.
John Pollock quoted her (Ruth Graham) as saying after they have been married for some time, "I think it is very important for young couples to disagree, but to learn to disagree pleasantly and to respect one another's opinions.
"If you agree on everything, there's not going to be much growth for either oneI don't think happy marriages are ever accidental. They are the results of good, hard work."
ISSUE OF RELIGION
Please study first of all 1Cor 7:39, 2Cor 6:14 and 1 Kgs 11:1-2, 4-10.
a) Marrying someone outside of your religion
This is unscriptural for an unmarried Christian. And it must be avoided.
b) Marrying someone outside of your denomination
This is scriptural if God leads the unmarried in that direction.
But as someone already married to an unbeliever, I will encourage you to study 1 Corinthians 7 carefully for wisdom on how to better your marriage. May God grant you a successful marriage in Jesus' name.
If you are not yet born-again, say this:
I choose to repent today. Also I choose to believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose up for my justification.
The Scripture says, If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved (Rom 10:9).
Therefore, I believe in Jesus in my heart and confess Him as my Lord. Now I am born-again (Amen).
SAY THIS ALOUD TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT
Also Jesus said, But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses (Acts 1:8).
And on the day of Pentecost All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance (Acts 2:4).
Therefore, I receive the Holy Spirit by faith right now and I begin to speak in an unknown tongue (unlearned tongue) as He gives me the utterance.
I command every foul spirit [spirit of fear, spirit of unbelief, spirit of doubt, religious spirit, unforgiving spirit] wanting to hinder me to stop in its evil operation in my life in Jesus name.
Thank you God for filling me with your Spirit in Jesus name (Amen).
