The Manifested Marriage Course
LESSON 1 – SALVATION – WHY DO I NEED IT?
This lesson sets the foundation and purpose for understanding our need of a savior and how it is the cornerstone of marriage.
LESSON 2 – MARRIAGE – COVENANT OR CONTRACT
How God designed man and woman to function together in Marriage based on Covenant. The purpose of this lesson is to take a straightforward look at what God’s word says in regard to Marriage, and to conform our Marriage to match His design.
LESSON 3 – WHAT DOES MARRIAGE REPRESENT?
The marriage union is very precious to God’s Heart. He doesn’t take it lightly. The marriage union is so important to God that He designed the Jewish Marriage ceremony to represent the Marriage Covenant between Jesus, “God’s only begotten Son” and the Church, His Bride!
LESSON 4 - THE POWER OF OUR WORDS
Have you ever experienced words like: SHAME ON YOU WILL NEVER AMOUNT TO ANYTHING! ….. OUCH!! We pretend it’s no big deal. The key word here is pretend. Of course, those words hurt. Not only the words but also the tone of voice in which they were delivered. So many of us have become the walking wounded. We desperately need to hear our value, that we have purpose, that our lives matter and have meaning. We need to hear we were created with a purpose, we were made for a purpose and we were born on purpose. Our words expose our heart.
LESSON 5 – GOD’S STANDARD FOR FORGIVENESS
Understanding forgiveness is critical in our relationship with the Lord and our spouse. Forgiveness brings individual freedom and healing in our personal lives and flows into our marriage relationship. We’ll take a closer look at what the scriptures say about true forgiveness and how it applies to our marriage covenant.
LESSON 6 – THE POWER OF AGREEMENT
Agreement is not compromise. In trying to find agreement, couples will often use compromise, manipulation, logic, emotions, even putting out a fleece, you know the open door/closed door method. What’s worse is when a spouse gives in because they don’t care or they feel as though their voice is never heard.
LESSON 7 – ROLES – WHO DOES WHAT?
Pearl Harbor Honolulu, Hawaii, Sunday morning, December 7, 1941. Because of the choice to ignoring the warning from the Radar; 2,403 men and women lost their lives that day. In marriage both spouses have a role in keeping their marriage safe and protected. In the beginning God equipped both Adam and Eve as a team to fight spiritual warfare together. He placed within both of them the ability and responsibility to work together. Combine, they are an unbeatable team, as long as each spouse does their part.
LESSON 8 – GOD’S WORLD OF FINANCES
The old saying you will reap what you sew couldn’t be truer. There are many examples of this in the natural and in scripture. A farmer when he plants corn will not produce figs. Nor will he expect to get corn from a fig tree. Each will reproduce after its own kind. In the story about Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob, Esau, Laban, Leah and Rachel for example ultimately, each of them reaped what they had sewn. It’s the same with our money. One of the top 5 reasons for divorce in today’s world is…... yes, you guessed it, MONEY. In this lesson you will learn and apply the simple ways to ensure your family’s financial future through the scriptures and practical application to grow your finances (even without a raise).
LESSON 9 – SEWING AND REAPING
Let’s take a look at what scripture says brings God’s blessing and what brings His cursing in our lives and the outcome of both. Discover why some families just seem to prosper and others don’t. What you discover in this lesson just might surprise you.
LESSON 10 – GENERATIONAL BLESSING OR CURSING
So many of us have only looked at the God that blesses His people. So often we forget that God is a just God and He has set down His laws and rules that govern our protection and provision. In this lesson we will discover that God has set before us blessing and cursing. It’s up to us what we choose.
LESSON 11 – WHAT’S WRITTEN IN YOUR BOOK?
Did you know you have a book that was written about you before you were born? You were always in Gods thoughts. He’s put within you, talents, abilities, dreams, and desires that he needs you to accomplish as your purpose here on earth. Discover what he has for you.
LESSON 12 – THE COURTS OF HEAVEN
Finding the answer to our prayers come from discovering that when we pray we are actually petitioning a real courtroom (just like we have here on earth) where our accuser (satan) is bringing accusations against us. As we repent and ask for forgiveness for our sin we then petition the court with our lawyer Jesus beside us. We are petitioning for the blood of Jesus to cover our sin and grant us our petition(s) according to what has been promised us.
LESSON 13 – SPIRITUAL WARFARE
The Old Testament stories of Joshua and the battles that took place were fought on the battle field. Today not only do we fight on a battle field in times of war but we often fight legal battles in the courtrooms with a plaintiff, defendant, lawyers and a judge. In spiritual warfare we fight our battles through obedience, prayer, worship and proclaiming out loud God’s word.
LESSON 14 - WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
So where do we go from here? We suggest you go back over each lesson and ask yourself what is God speaking to us individual and corporately? Where is He wanting to take our family now that we understand the purpose for our marriage? Have you completed your vision statement for your marriage? Your ministry? Your children? Your vision statement will be your guide and accountability partner. We suggest that you review this course as needed but at least once a year. Let your light shine within your home and your community giving hope and healing. Take what you have learned and help those who desire more within their marriage. Be that light they can count on to find their way.
