Should An Evangelist Marry a Traditional King?
I am not God, so I really can’t utter much on this, and no one else has rights to speak since we both are neither God.
This is my case: “Evangelist marying the Oni of Ife”
(1) Joseph had a specific assignment in Egypt. Pharaoh gave him a wife named Asenat, the daughter of Portiphera, the high priest of Egypt, an idol worshiping high priest. Joseph was deputy of Pharaoh, Pharaoh also was an idol worshiping king. How did Joseph remain serving and worshiping God despite all these entanglement like cobweb intermarriage is only and best known to him and God
Many may criticise this lady as being greedy, thirsty and hungry for royalty wealth power and money. Some may even say she is a fake tithe collecting Evangelist and use this as another opportunity to destroy the christiandom. Some may say her Christian faith is dead on arrival with this wedding, she will be exposed to many rituals;
yet was Joseph not surrounded with many idol worshiping people and rituals?
Yes Asenath had two kids for Joseph, Mannaseh and Ephraim. Did Asenath end up worshiping Joseph’s God ? Bible was silent on it, yet we can assume she did or she didn’t, yet her presence in Joseph’s life, she being the daughter of the chief herbalist in Egypt didn’t diminish Joseph’s faith in God you are not God even if you are entitled to your opinion, I agree, yet you are not God.
(2) Esther married King Aheuseraus, The king of Persia and Medes, Persia and Medes were cities created when ancient Babylon was divided into two Babylon was the city ruled by Nebuchadnezzar a powerful idol worshiping king, his son Beleshazzar continued in the idolatry business.
Yet, Esther as queen to this strange King fasted and sought God’s face for the deliverance of her people and God heard and answered.
(3) What of Moses who later married an Ethiopian woman?
To this extent is my applicable knowledge to this mystery of the Evangelist marrying a traditional King. Whatever we can’t and we don’t understand let’s leave it to God.
God might send the Evangelist lady to the king’s life for a specific assignment, that I cannot tell, I can only assume and presume. We don’t know the agreement she has with the King of Ife, we don’t know what understanding of non compulsion of ritual ordinances they’ve both agreed which the oracles in the palace also have agreed to and permitted the king to go ahead and marry the Evangelist. I don’t know, you don’t know, so, let’s shut up and leave them alone to the consequences of their decision, if there be any at all.
This may be genuine Love and some times love might seem foolish, yet love is powerful, and has a vehement flame.
What about two Christian’s who married each other and they live like devil’s beating each other putting Jesus to shame daily, living the devil’s advocate kind of marriage, daily sorrow and tears, thoughts of suicide and killing of partner?
What God reveals to man belongs to man and what God has refused to reveal to man belongs to God only.
