The Biblical Pathway To Finding A Life Partner (Review) – Apostle Joshua Selman Nimmak

I want to share on what I call the biblical pathways to finding a life partner. I believe that this will heal relationships and heal homes. Just give me a few minutes and let me say what I’m about to say very seriously.
_
Please look up everyone. Is there a method or a formula if you want to say, to finding a life partner, because it looks like the church is largely confused. I share with you a few things from prophetic confusion to here and there. The interesting thing, when I was doing a little research for this message, I found something that shocked me. There were all kinds of ways that people married in the Bible. Let me give you a few. All kinds of ways, good, bad, ugly.
_
For instance, Hosea, finds and marries a prostitute(Hosea 1:1-3). Moses, finds a man with seven daughters, He waters the flock, and carries a wife free of charge(Exodus 2:16-21). Boaz buys a land, and with that property, he finds a poor lady, and she becomes his wife, what a coincidence(Ruth 4:5 -10). Are you blessed? The benjamanites in Jude 21:19-25, they stole women and ran away with them, that’s how they married. So just go to a camp, steal a woman, disappear with her. Jacob, he laboured for seven years x2 (Genesis 29:15-30) seven years of toiling and labour, got the wrong wife, laboured for another seven years, got the one he wanted. 14years labour to get a wife. David, he kills Goliath, gets rich, marries the king’s daughter, and frees his house from paying tax. That’s how he got his wife. (1 Samuel 17:25). The king swore that who ever defeats Goliath, he will give him his wife, he will make him rich, and the family will no longer pay tax. Ahasuerus was rich enough to organize a beauty contest, where all the virgins in the land were brought, and he got a wife(Esther 3:2-4). David kills Uriah and marries his wife. So in the Bible, people kill people and marry their wife(2 Samuel 11). Solomon found out that marrying one or two is not the way, so he had 700 wives and 300 concubines(2 Kings 11:1-3). This are different skills and strategies people explore this marriage thing in the Bible. 1000 women in his life, so that he can be faithful. And then Paul in 1 Corinthians 7:32-35 just said look, all this thing is a mess, let me just serve God and live, and so he refused to get married.

_
Now you see, I just did a little run down. There are more like capturing slaves, you capture a slave and turn her into your wife.
_
So if you read the Bible, without the wisdom of the Spirit, you would be deceived, which of the method would you choose? Kill a woman’s husband and marry her, or go to a vineyard and but real estate, and everything in it plus the woman, is a sign that it’s your wife. Or organise a beauty contest, and then, do it like the bachelor, and then the finest becomes your wife. Or marry one thousand women. Or ask Federal Government what they will give you, if you will fight terrorism. Maybe you’ll marry the president’s daughter.
_
Anyway, the point here is this, there are many examples, the Bible, interestingly, now I don’t know why exactly, but the Bible does not exactly give us a direct formula, like salvation. You know when it comes to salvation, there is a formula. Is that true?, There is a way you know you’re not saved, there is a way you know you’re saved. But for marriage, it seem as though, there was no exact formula. And I believe the reason is because we are dealing with human beings here. Hallelujah!
_
But then, I’ve been able to bring up a few things, that I want us to look at. Two incidences in the Bible, Adam, the first marriage in Genesis 2:21 “And the rib which God had taken from a man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.” Now the key verse here is verse 23, “and Adam said, this is now bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh, she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man.” Watch this! So the wife that Adam married was made of thesame material, the same substance, the same idealogy, the same conviction, are we getting some points there now?. So Adam married a woman who was made of thesame substance, if she was a lion, their substance would not be compatible, so we see compatibility as a key here. It had to be a woman, who was taken out of him, had thesame composition with him. Spiritual composition, psychological composition, biological composition. You never marry a man or a woman that does not sustain thesame composition with you.
_
Points to note, there is no physical formula provided for finding a wife, but there are scriptural guidelines. There is no physical formula in the Bible, the Bible scatters guidelines, and I’ve been able to bring five scriptures, that if you use, they’ll guide you to make a very godly decision. Ready?
_
(1) Proverbs 18:22 “whosoever finds a wife, finds a good thing, and obtains favor.” So automatically the Bible shows us that the process of getting a wife will demand responsibility on the part of the man, there will be action, it will involve you. The word find, it didn’t say whosoever picks a wife, or whosoever prays a wife to come. Whosoever finds a wife, it gives an idea of searching, it gives an idea of desire, that means there will be commitment, if you want to get married, action will be required on your own part. The Bible says, “whosoever finds a wife.” You’re not going to sit down where you are and want a lady to come and meet you, it’s not going to happen that way, regardless of whether you saw a vision or not, there will be an initiation, there will be a step you must take.
_
(2) Amos 3:3, this is the grand key, I believe to a successful marriage and relationship. The key to a successful marriage is not love, it has been proven again and again that love is not enough to keep marriage, (Amos 3:3) “can two walk together except they be agree,” the word “be agree,” is the word compatible. Compatible measures your degree of agreeableness, spiritual agreeableness, psychological agreeableness, similarity in idealogies, about God, about money, about life, about parenting. Two will walk together if they’re compatible. Are you getting what I’m saying now?
_
Very important, that means, it doesn’t matter whether I saw her in a vision or in a dream, whether I saw myself wearing a bow tie, and she was wearing a white wedding gown, and a flower came from heaven as this flower is your marriage flower, I don’t care what you saw, or did not see, if there is no compatibility, imagine for instance, that this is my wife, I get married to this young lady, am praying in tongues, or she is praying in tongues, and I’m turning and saying what is that, I don’t believe in praying in tongues, two are not working together. I believe in spending, and wastage, I believe in my ego, I rather let children die, than to be giving donations to children, and that’s not her mindset, you see that there is friction. So what is your ideology about God, what is your ideology about money, what is your ideology about culture, what’s your ideology about ministry. A man of God for instance, goes to get a lady because she’s fine, what is her passion about ministry, otherwise, she’ll be fine for nothing and destroy your church. When she’s suppose to be a model, she cannot sacrifice, she can’t lay down her life to be the mother figure for the church. Is God speaking to us?
_
I want you to write this down and star it, never, I don’t care what you see in the spirit, never, brothers ask a lady out, who you’re not compatible with, you’re going to destroy her, or she will destroy you. Even is she does not have every ideology straighten out, does she have the teachability? Sisters, does he have the teachability? Is not just that he’s in a Jeep, what is his idealogy about managing challenges, otherwise, you’re a Christian, you’ll get married to him, he tells you he’s a Christian, and the next thing, he brings the tail of an antelope, or the tail of any animal, and hangs it as a jazz, and says see, I know I’m a Christian, but let me tell you, my great-grandfather had this things, is like that in our culture, everybody brings it, if you don’t understand, just keep it there. That’s supposed to be a Christian, he wakes up in the morning and he’s making incantations on that tail, and you’re saying my goodness, what did I get married to, and you know by spiritual intelligence that you’re in trouble, but you claim you’re marrying a rich man, and now you married disaster. Even if you never see one vision, even if you never hear anybody’s name, by the time you find a lady that is compatible in ideology, I guaranty you, except the word of God is a lie, you will have an exceptional marriage. That is the reason why unbelievers, although when they marry, they were not born again, because they had compatibility, still are together, and christians who are born again, because they think born again will solve compatibility. The Bible says, “it is better to see that the roof of your house, than to be with a contentious and angry woman. You are a man of God, you know where God is taking you to, and now you go and Carry’s lady that is lazy, you carry a lady that is weak, crying over everything, let me tell you, two of you are born again, but just know that, that family is on its ways to crash down I tell you the truth. Don’t unecessarily spiritualize things, and say no, I know my God is able, this girl, the way she prays – Mr man is she going to be able to cook for you? That’s the reason why I encourage people, the moment you start a relationship, part of the responsibilities of a man is take the lady to whether your church, or your feeding place, wherever is your place of spiritual feeding, do you know why? Let me tell you, if a brother in koinonia, ask a lady out in koinonia, the probability of them having an exceptional marriage is even above 90% why? Because their ideologies are similar, they’re hearing thesame thing, and they believe thesame thing. Are you getting what I’m saying now? Not that we say okay, we are fasting for ten(10) days, the wife is pulling her mouth all around angry, and saying me I don’t like all this kind of things oh, what kind of ten(10) day fast, ehn, what is all that, and the man is saying look, look, look, we’re going far, or a woman who hates excellence, and is ready to manage anything, but the man is ready to stay.
_
Proverbs 19:14 very interesting scripture, when I stumbled across this it blessed me in no small way. It says, “houses and riches, meaning your father and mother, your parents, you can inherit houses and riches, but when it has to do with a woman, you must involve God. Are you hearing now? It says “a prudent wife is from the Lord.” Meaning, if you ignore God, you throw God out of the equation, because you believe, this God, everytime God comes in, He messes my relationships and makes me take a decision. Many people hate God, until they enter a relationship, they now go to God and say, Lord this is hereby introducing my life partner, and God will say, you chose it, go ahead.
_
By the time you see pepper in the relationship or marriage, you now turn and say, God where were You, God says, I was here all the while. “Behold I stand at the door and knock,” if you open, I will come in, if you give Me entrance.
_
Let me tell you something, brothers and sisters, a prudent wife, and by extension, a prudent husband is from the Lord, you cannot use the seeing of the eye, to know that a man would still be faithful after ten (10) years. Men can change, as the time you meet the man, he doesn’t have money, you don’t know what his tendencies are, you cannot use the beauty amd the physique of a lady just to believe that this is my wife. Oh God, no matter what you say.
_
A prudent wife is from the Lord, so involve God. These are the guidelines that the Bible gives us.
_
So number one (1) there is a finding, you will take action, and for ladies, you will position yourself. Brothers if you ever want a wife stop sitting down and saying visions, and visions, and visions.
_
I will round up with the issue of visions. A prudent wife is from the Lord.
_
Isaiah 30:21. It’s another guideline that the Bible gives us, very very powerful. Isaiah 30:21, “and thine ears shall hear a voice behind thee saying, this is the way, walk ye in it. When he turn to the right hand, when ye turn to the left.” It says you’ll hear a voice, in other words, expect the leadership of the Holy Spirit in helping you choose a life partner. Expect it! The Bible gives you a guarantee, that you will hear a voice leading you. “My sheep hear my voice.”
_
Lastly, Luke 14:28. This is the course dimension of marriage and relationship. “For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish,” Not start the building, not start the marriage, which of you, intending to build a marital tower, will not first sit down, and start counting the cost.
_
Am I ready to pay the school fees of children, am I ready to be responsible over a woman and her family, am I ready to live with one woman all the days of my life and be faithful, am I ready to grow old with this man, and grow old with this woman, am I ready to love her like my life, am I ready to protect her, am I ready to die for my family. This is a guideline.
_
No matter what vision you see, no matter what dream you have, God will not count the cost for you, this is where we miss it. God can show you that, Shaolmer is your wife, but if you don’t count the cost, it will still fail. It does not mean God lied.
_
Five scriptures, that if any man uses sincerely as a guideline, you will make a good relationship, you will make an exceptional relationship.
_
Now let me round up by saying this. According to scripture, the prophetic, is not the doctrine, or the primary channel, through which God reveals life partners. No, while it is true that atleast in two places in scripture, we see God directly involved in bringing revelation and confirmation about a man’s life partner. Number one (1) is the prophet Hosea, we see God Himself asking him to go and marry a prostitute. But we understand that, that was a prophetic message, prophets, those people were actors, God will literally use their lives to act out a script and explain the harlotry of Israel to her. So he told Hosea to go and marry a prophet called Gomer, and so that we see the harlotry, she’ll leave him, amd the he’ll say the pain you feel is the pain I always feel when Israel goes to bow to other god. Number two (2) we see Joseph being afraid, knowing that Mary was with child, he wanted to divorce her quietly, and the Angel appears and gives a divine confirmation, “don’t be afraid to take her as your wife.” Are you getting the point now?
_
No other place I know in scripture where you find God giving direct revelations, no! There are guidelines, there are principles.
_
Now does God reveal spouses to people? Yes He does, but I believe strongly that there are two conditions for that. Number one (1) is based on you’re personal relationship and degree of intimacy with God, and your level of yieldedness to Him. There is a way I can walk with God, and earn certain privileges on the strength of my intimacy with Him, I have so given all to God that He knows, that whatever choice He makes for me, I am that dare to say yes to Him, based on that, God is able to open you up, and give you thee privilege of using visions, and revelations. It is rather a unique case, or use a prophet to speak to you.
_
Another key that justify prophetic revelation is the nature and the kind of assignment. There are certain kinds of assignment, that will necessarily involve you marrying certain kinds of women or men. For instance, being in ministry. As a man of God, because of the nature of your call, God will not allow you to just marry anybody. You will find out that there are probings, and there are dealings, God will be exceptionally meticulous. Aside from this two instances, every other means of marriage in the Bible, is simply not just waiting for what you call God’s timing, are you seeing the mistake now? God’s timing is when you become a husband, is when you become a father, when you become that, it is time for marriage.
_
Because male and female He created them, and God already gave a command, be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth. When woman was brought into the scene, God saw that it is good. So, waiting forever to say, God wants me to marry in 2020 or God wants me to marry at 50, that’s why at 45 am not married, no, no, no, no, It is absolutely up to you. If you delay marriage because you’re trying to be a husband, a father, and a priest, I salute you, don’t let anybody push you under pressure, and say marry. Or as a lady, if you feel that you need some space, to become a wife, a mother, and a priest, I also salute you. Because it is a sign of honor to both your husband, and your wife respectively.
_
So the church, has been cut up in all these illusions, because we have complicated the issue of marriage, whereas it is a very very simple thing.
_
Look at me, any brother here that believes, that you have trained yourself to be a husband, a father, and a priest, I guarantee you, the gates are open for you for marriage, and no demon in hell will stop you. And any lady that truly, you can know you’re prepared. Some of you right now, at once you’ll stop praying, oh God when will he come, right now you’re seeing that truly, truly, you’re not prepared. Especially for the kind of person you want.
_
Let me balance this, if you have a vision, and a dream, of a man, or a lady, keep it to yourself, and keep moving on. Are you hearing what I’m saying? This advice is a blessed advice that will honor you. The Bible says, “and Mary kept these things to herself.” Whether it comes to pass, it should not ruin your life, whether there is vision or not, we see in part, and we prophesy in part. Whether there be tongue, they will go away, whether there be prophesy, they will end, but they Word oh Lord is settled in heaven.
_
Prophesy and visions should never be exhalted above the Word, that will become to the secret to disappointment. So if God shows you a guy, thank God for it, if God shows you a lady, that God for it, keep those visions, honor them, but keep preparing to follow the truths of the written word. If it so happens that God brings the person, and confirms His word, glory be to God, and we give Him praise.
_
If it so happens that things did not work exactly as shown in the vision, Lord I give you praise, I am growing. Are you getting that? This is a recipe for freedom. Otherwise there will keep being repeated circles of heartbreak and disappointment in the church. Right now, when brothers and sisters are getting married, there are people who come for weddings with heart shattering pain, they sit down, and it’s almost like a nightmare, as they watch the man they have always desired being given to another woman, or they watch the lady they’ve seen all there lives in dream.
_
Listen, we exhalt the word of God, above any dream, above any vision. That’s the reason you can dream and see five different ladies at five different times. Do not allow yourself to be discouraged, because not everything may be a lie, it may be true, however, make up your mind, that this word that abides forever, will become your key.
_
So my brother, the key to your marriage is in your hands, my sister, the key to your marriage is in your hands. It’s not in the hands of a dream, it’s not in the hands of a prophet, it’s not even in the hands of God, He has given it to you.
_
When you become a husband, when you become a wife, when you become a father, when you become a mother, and when you become priests, you are ready for marriage. When you’re ready to end prophetic and spiritual confusion, when you’re ready to make your standards reasonable, for a man to come into your life, or your standard reasonable to get a godly wife, when you’re ready to refuse ungodly parental influences destroying your life, when you’re ready to make alternatives for your finance and your establishments, and when you’re finally ready to involve God in your life, then you’re ready for marriage.

THE HOLY SPIRIT By Apostle Joshua Selman Nimmak

THE HOLY SPIRIT – Apostle Joshua Selman Nimmak

The Holy Spirit is the Life giving dimension of God, It is impossible to walk in the fullness of God without the recognition of the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

Miracles can challenge people but cannot create conviction in them, therefore It takes the power of the Holy Spirit to create conviction in the hearts of men. .

The Spirit of God must bring the reality of God in you. Otherwise the things of God will become a burden to you.

The man who works with the Holy Spirit is a man of signs and wonder, an object of praise.

Transformation is impossible without the Holy Spirit. If your mind cannot host God. You cannot host God”

You need the Holy Spirit to gain spiritual understanding also, there is no level of maturity that can give you direction you will need someone who is ancient to direct and help you sustain a spiritual perception that is higher than science.

Bible study without the Holy Spirit will turn you into a religious person, the goal is not to cram scriptures, the goal is to be an expression of God.

The Holy Spirit can place something in your life that commands favour everywhere, because it takes the power of the Holy Spirit to excel in business, ministry and in life.

We must return to a dimension where our lives is supernatural all wise because Grace is not limited to salvation, Grace is how we live.

Every dimension in the spirit we desire, there is a grace of God at work in that dimension.
