Renowned publisher of Our Daily Manna devotional, Bishop Chris E Kwakpovwe has opened about his marital journey so far and also shared some tips on having a blissful marriage.
Excerpts from the interview: MEANING OF MARRIAGE Marriage is the union of a man and a woman joined by God not man. However, Not all marraiges are JOINED BY GOD. SOME ARE JOINED BY MEN via wrong choices. SOME ARE EVEN JOINED BY OCCULTIC LOVE PORTIONS, etc. By the grace of God and via the ODM - OUR DAILY MANNA - mission worldwide, I have seen hundreds confess that they actually used charms to marry thier spouses. As I am led we have to use prayers to break such charms but I cannot reveal what happened to such marriages after such prohetic prayer encounters. Some things are ministerial secrets I cannot reveal on social media. MARRYING A PASTOR Papa God has kept us going. Also, marriage is work by both parties. Getting married to a Man of God may be hard because He may have to resort to his God sometimes for decisions. Can you explain why ABRAHAM Did not inform SARAH that he was going to sacrifice ISAAC? NOT ALL DECISIONS ARE TAKEN ON THE MARITAL BED. SOME ARE TAKEN IN THE SECRET PLACE WITH GOD. So it takes a woman who understands SPIRITUAL principles to be able to marry a CALLED MAN. NOT JUST A CHURCH MAN because not all pastors or ministers are truly called. Only God can judge that. MARITAL ADVICE Marry your friend; don't marry anybody just because they are Christian sistersor brothers. MARRY YOUR FRIEND. Being a Christian is a CRUCIAL FACTOR but Not the ONLY FACTOR. MARRIAGE IS A MARATHON AND NOT A 100 METERS SHORT RACE. MARRY YOUR FRIEND.* DESCRIBING HIS WIFE, REV. FLORA KWAKPOVWE. She's a woman that can tolerate me and my "25 hours" a day busy lifestyle. CELEBRATING OVER 20 YEARS OF MARRIAGE I will be teaching young ones the right facts about HAPPY MARRIAGE SECRETS and HOW TO COPE WITH MARITAL ACCIDENTS/INJURIES BASED ON THE WORD OF GOD and NOT ON CHURCH- MAN-MADE DOCTRINES. LIFE HAPPENS! We are not perfect but we can Win. 30th of June was our marriage anniversary by God's grace . DIVORCE YES, LIFE HAPPENS AND NOBODY IS ABOVE A MISTAKE, BUT We or THE BIBLE don't encourage divorce. HOWEVER, marriage is not a life sentence. There are VERY CLEAR BUT FEW EXCEPTIONAL and ALLOWED CASES from the WORD OF GOD. THE CHURCH HAS FAILED TO TEACH ON LIFE AFTER A DIVORCE because MANY PASTORS ARE EITHER IGNORANT on that subject OR THEY ARE AFRAID TO STEP ON TOES WHO HAVE TAUGHT WRONG MARITAL CHURCH AND MAN- CREATED DOCTRINES FOR YEARS. Questions like "How to cope as a Single MUM OR DAD", CAN I RE-MARRY? etc, These are the areas we have been HELPING millions worldwide. If your church or friends threw you out because of a divorce or being a single mum, etc, contact us ..........BUT ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT whether single, married, divorced or remarried, our goal is HEAVEN AT LAST IN LINE WITH THE WRITTEN, UNDILUTED AND UNBREAKABLE WORD OF GOD. Always Remember too that A KNOCKDOWN IS NOT A KNOCKOUT. IMPACT OF THE CHURCH ON MARRIAGE The Church has helped stabilize the marriage instutution, but there are alot of POPULIST but very wrong CHURCH-MAN- MADE DOCTRINES (not the WORD OF GOD) still here and there that have kept millions in severe and "wicked" martial bondages.
