Marriage and Family


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.” John 1:1–3.
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;” Hebrew 1:3.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Hebrew 11:3.

The word of God was the instrument with which God made all things, and it is what God used in upholding all things. God gave this same word to us His children, whom He made to be co-creators with Him, to use in creating our desired world.

Therefore, all that we need to make our dreamed world become a reality is to create it using the word of God just as God did at the beginning in Genesis chapter one. But how can we do this when we do not have a good knowledge of that word?

This is what has informed the leadership in re-introducing the program “FAMILY CLINIC”. Many of the saints are becoming increasingly challenged in their marriages and homes, with many almost or already at the point of being miserable. The enemy has taken advantage of the low level God’s children have in the knowledge of God’s word in creating the marriages and homes many have dreamed. This has allowed the enemy to tear their home right before their eyes. And they appear to be helpless in the situation they have found themselves.

The “Family Clinic” has been put together by God to equip and train the saints in God’s word on issues related to marriage and home affairs. By this, we can build the kind of home we have long desired. Hear the testimony of this brother that validates this claim:

I want to thank the God of this commission, the God of Bishop David Oyedepo and Pst Adeolu Adewumi. Through the Family Clinic, we have learnt a lot of things that have turned out to be of great help to us as young couple. First, my wife’s attitude before was nothing to write home about. But through the Family Clinic, there has been a dramatic change that has made for a peaceful and harmonious family life. Also, I am the kind of person that when I want to take any decision, I don’t consult my wife. It is when the decision I have taken has proved to be a wrong step that I will now seek her opinion. But at one of the sessions of Family Clinic, I discovered that the bible wisdom is that husband and wife are to seek each other’s opinion. Now I make decisions with her opinion strongly considered. This has proved to be better in result and has brought more joy at home. The most interesting part of the impact of the Family Clinic is that I like to have my wife and I put on the same clothe to church, which my wife hardly agrees to. It was at the Family Clinic when God’s servant instructed that husband and wife should dress in same clothe that this yoke was broken in my marriage. Now, we always come to church every Sunday in the same clothe. I want to thank God for what God has used the Family Clinic to do in our marriage and our lives. To Him is all the glory.

Listen to this, “Every home is built by some man…” Hebrew 3:4. This means that, whether a successful or a broken home, it was built. The only way to be assured of building an enviable home is to build exclusively with God’s word. The irony today is that many of God’s children want to build with ‘modernism’, some with ‘tradition’, yet they expect a glorious home.

Remember also that, “Marriage is to be enjoyed and not endured” Genesis 2:18. Statistics shows that many are only enduring their marriage. But I want you to know that no matter the situation now, you can begin to enjoy it.
