Build Houses and Dwell in Them!

Whenever God took His people some place new, 
He would instruct them this way ~

Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them; Take wives and become the fathers of sons and daughters, and take wives for your sons and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; and multiply there and do not decrease. {Jeremiah 29:6}

Yet today, it seems most believe that they should buy homes and not dwell in them; women should leave their homes all day to work for somebody else. Only take a wife if you "feel" like it but it's better to test her out first by having sex and living with her, then have children only if you "want" them. Has God's Word to us changed? NO!

He still wants us to have homes and dwell in them. He wants us to marry and bear children. I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. {1 Timothy 5:14}

We no longer need to build homes since we have many capable men building them for us. We are not the Israelites who are settling in barren, empty lands. We also don't need to plant gardens anymore since there are others who do this for us. {However, many Christians are going back to the land to farm and raise their own food for health purposes, to know what exactly is in the food they're consuming and for protection against an unstable economy.}

God still wants us to marry and bear children. This has never changed nor will it ever until the day He returns in the clouds to take us to our brand new home that He has prepared for us. {Can you even begin to imagine that home when everything truly beautiful in this world is His creation? Even on the new earth, we will live in homes.} Don't ever be afraid to have children due to the wicked society we live in. When Jesus walked this earth, He called it a faithless and perverse generation over 2,000 years ago! We build mighty armies for the Lord by raising godly offspring. This is what He calls godly women to do!

God's Word is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. When a godly man finds you and wants to marry you, marry him. As soon as you are married and you want to have children, have them. If you continue to have children and people mock you, know that you are pleasing the Lord and your children are blessings from Him.
