Divine Coupling Eliminates Weakness & Fosters Strength
How we know that Rebecca was Isaac’s residue is that the solution to the pending problem in her life came out of Isaac. If a couple can work this “male and his female” principle, such will be as invincible as God because inside each spouse is the solution for whatever short coming is in the life of the other person; that is how God has made it.
The programme of God started with Abraham when he had the revelation and was to continue in Isaac, but it was Rebecca that had the prophetic word about the destinies of the twin, Esau and Abel. It was Rebecca that was troubled within her and God told her that two nations were in her womb. God did not say that to Isaac to show that as far as God is concerned, Isaac and Rebecca were one. Since they were together, she was the mouthpiece God spoke through to manifest in Isaac. It is when couples catch the revelation of the remains that their spouses are that they will begin to take them serious.
Look at Abraham and Sarah. God called Abraham and told him He would take him to a land that He would show him. God told him He would raise a notion through him, and kings would come out of that nation. But when Sarah was old,” the Hagar Factor” was introduced and Hagar gave birth to Ishmael. In Genesis 17, God insisted that it’s in Sarah his wife who was the completion of his destiny that the promise would be fulfilled and not in Ishmael of Hagar. And there are many men wasting time around with someone that is not the complete part of them. A man cannot break into the fullness of his destiny when he has a non-completer for a wife. It is not because that woman is evil, but she is equipped to complete somebody else. But a miracle of God will take place for those that are already married. A divine working of God will take place that will make you see your spouse as just the remaining part of you, your completion.
God insisted that it was Sarah that would give birth to that seed of promise, not just any woman. I pray for every woman that has been incompetent in balancing up what destiny God is working through her husband that the Lord will visit you today. This is a “couple-cleansing”, a couple-visitation, and something will happen to you. For every young man and young woman, you will go for no other thing but your male, your female, your residue.
When I look at myself, I know I couldn’t have married somebody else. I don’t think I can survive marrying somebody else except my husband. When I think back and I think about some brothers that wanted to marry me, some I still see around today, I shake my head. I just know I wouldn’t have been able to survive in their houses. I would have been divorced long time ago because I am not their completer. I am not saying God doesn’t have a plan for them but what is in me is not to complete the plan of God for their lives. I pray for every single that your spirit will open to see your destiny and the residue.
When it was Rebecca, although she had weakness in her flesh and used her way to fulfil divine plan, she was just the remaining aspect and the continuity of the programme of God for Isaac was just in her.
Look at Manoah and His wife in Judges 13, they were a peculiar couple. God was raising the couple to raise Samson that would deliver the Israelites from the hand of the Philistines and God came and showed himself to the woman and gave her instructions. The husband was not there, and he prayed for the angel to come back. When the Angel came and left, the man became afraid and said they were going to die because they had seen God. But the wife said they were not going to die. The woman was strong where the man was weak. On the contrary, see how Ananias and Sapphira died together. That happened because they were weak in the same area. They had the same weakness; they were both stingy to the Lord, they were both selfish. If a husband is selfish, the wife must be generous. If the wife is stingy the husband must be generous; that is how God arranges it. If both husband and wife are stingy something is wrong somewhere. If one between Ananias and Sapphira was large-hearted he/she would not have agreed to that evil agreement, but they were weak in the same area and strong in the same area. They could both look at the prophet in the face and say yes to what is not. They could look at the prophet’s face despite the flow of the anointing and tell a lie. Ananias was so strong in the same wise. When the Apostles asked her if what her husband said was true, she said yes. They were strong in the same area and weak in the same area and they died together and died before their time.
But look at Abigail and Nabal. The man was a fool, but the woman was wise. She was the one that brought preservation where Nabal exposed the whole family to death. Haven’t you seen a man that is proud and cocky, and it is the wife that is humble and greets people? Many evil people would have done to the man were waived when they remembered the woman. That is how God has ordained marriage to be. A man’s wife is his completer. A wife is to complete something in her husband. Not just in the clothing materials you share and sew together, I am talking about the life, the destiny, the finishing aspect of the plan and programme of God for the man.
When you see an obvious lack in the life of a man and he is not making progress or moving on and the help of God has put in his wife is also not forth coming, it is either that woman is not his help or something has been shut down in the life of the woman that should be lifted up. When a man begins to shut down virtues in his wife, he will suffer for it. Be careful when you begin to say words that make your wife withdraw and keep quiet; that is shutting her down. A man is like a tiger to his own disadvantage because there is something in that woman that is to balance him, that is to complete him that will not come up when he is like that.
Look at Moses and his parents: the father gave the seed when he was born but it was the mother that worked out the preservation. Look at Joseph and Mary: it was Mary that had an encounter but if Joseph did not do what he did, would Jesus have survived? Definitely not! Some people think that Herod would not have succeeded in killing Jesus, that the sword would not have cut Him if they tried it. If it will not cut, why did God say they should run away? Jesus did not come to the world as God, He came as a man, as a little baby that could not walk, couldn’t do anything, and they had to carry Him away.
It was Mary that had the encounter concerning the birth of Jesus. She saw the angel and got pregnant without sleeping with a man.
But in the continuation of that programme, it was Joseph that God began to communicate with. Mary didn’t have any dream or any encounter after then; it was Joseph that God came to. What if he had married a man who was just very romantic but not like Joseph with strong connections with God? Joseph, even though not married to Mary, would have still been having dreams of God talking to him about a pregnant woman who should not move away from a particular place while the dummy that she married would just be sleeping and snoring with no encounter with God. Hence, Mary and her husband would be exposed which would cause a lot of damage to the programme of God in her hand. But because Mary married the right person that was in tune to receive communications from heaven based on the assignment the Lord has committed into their hands, the angel of God appeared to Joseph in a dream in Matthew chapter 2 verse 13 and said, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, fleet to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him” God also spoke to him in that same chapter to return to Israel after some time when it was safe for them.
