“‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done. On earth as it is in heaven.” – Matthew 6:10.

At the end of my 21 day fast, beginning of this year, the holy spirit dropped “a marriage like heaven” as a thought. At first, I thought maybe it is a topic for the blog, usually I get topics to write about “dropped” weekly in my spirit but as I continued to ponder on it, content that aligned to the said topic never surfaced. It then occurred to me that maybe it is a theme for the blog especially because I had decided (well God commanded me)to start blogging again. I left it as that, a theme of some sort. Hence it has become part of the branding of the blog. #MarriageLikeHeaven. Until just last month when the Holy spirit led me to the book of Revelations and I began to have an understanding of “a marriage like heaven” concept.

Heaven, when studying the book of revelations I learned that Heaven is a place filled with worship and praise to our Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus. When you read through the book you understand certain traditions of worship that people are accustomed to like using  incense during worship or worshiping raising your hands or people that actually lie flat face down (I felt so bad because I thought they were extra). The sole purpose of God creating Earth was to bring Heaven on Earth. He made man in his image and gave him dominion over Earth and commanded him to be fruitful and multiply. The purpose is for Earth to be filled with the same worship and praise to our Father in Heaven.

“Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be you name, thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.” Matthew 6. The kingdom of God is defined by the Bible as not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, Romans 14:17). A marriage of a husband and a wife that are  both seeking the Kingdom of God and its righteousness will have a marriage like Heaven added unto them, (Matthew 6:33). Both spouses purposefully and individually putting on Christ and working on their relationship with God. Will both embody biblical marital roles and focus on ministering love (Real love like the one we read on 2 Corinthians 13) to one another, respect to one another as Christ as commanded them. And because God is moved by obedience, blessings will be showered over their lives and they will live Psalm 128 prophesy like God had intended for them. The most important of all manifestation of the fruits of the spirit (Galatians 5:25), which will lead to a peaceful and joyful home, (Heaven). This was and is still the plan for God to use Marriage to bring Heaven on Earth.

The reality is often Marriages don’t start with the purpose to bring heaven on Earth. People have different reasons for getting married and while some did have a purpose to bring Heaven on Earth, they lost their purpose along the way due to life pressures and challenges. A marriage without a purpose or without a foundation is like building a house on sinking sand. When I met my husband, he asked me what was my ambition, I told him I just want to serve God with my life, that has always been the only thing I want to do everything would follow (Bathong I have always loved Branding and Marketing, I guess I was shy, “everything would follow”?!). Honestly looking back to his ambition and mine they didn’t align and at some point in our marriage I got so stressed because I wanted to force this purpose I had envisioned about marriage on him. Although my husband and I are unequally yoked spiritually a few years into our marriage I made a prayer to God and said “Heavenly Father, Use my life and my marriage for your glory”. The blog was deposited in my spirit.

Marriage is Gods territory whether the participants of the institution are aware of it or not, and the the sole purpose of marriage is to bring Heaven on Earth and multiplication. The enemy always trick Gods children by selling them a fairytale wrapped in a marriage, well I am not bursting anyone’s bubble. I mean I would like to think a marriage like Heaven can emulate some what a fairytale of some sorts but there is a formula or a Kingdom principle to live by, the Bible. I am so sorry if it is not what you want to hear. I believe a great deal of heartache and pain in marriage is a ramification of a wrong foundation or purpose. Unfortunately I have still seen people in the church do Marriage wrong because we do not understand the foundation and purpose and our participation thereof in the institution. Good news is, if you got into the institution without a Heavenly purpose, you and your spouse can pray and ask God to reveal his purpose for your marriage and for God to use your marriage for his glory. If you find yourself reading this blogpost married, desolate, frustrated and feeling far from living the promise of a marriage like Heaven, you can make a prayer like I did and ask God to reveal his purpose for your marriage and diligently seek his Kingdom. You might not find heaven in your marriage but his name will be glorified through your life and you will have peace that surpasses all understanding in the midst of everything. Heaven on Earth.

  1. Amazing read as always BoldTiffy.. thank you for reminding us what a marriage like heaven looks like. Definitely trying out a few tips mentioned her but over and above I absolutely share the same sentiments. 💕💕

  2. What stands out for me and also a verse I came across this week is that our purpose on earth is to glorify God. We are the salt, the lamps, the hands and feet of Jesus on earth. What a revelation that we should not loose that purpose in when we get into marriage. Imagine when 2 people come together and their lives individually and collectively glorify God. 🙏🙌🙏. Heaven on earth indeed. Matthew 5:16 Let your light shine before men, that. they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven. Thank you and bless Tiffy❤️😍😘
