I poured myself into the translation of the booklet Original Love, and laboured into the night hours to finish the work. Precious insights into the Word of God and his intention for my marriage unfolded in my mind as I laboured through the translation work.
I saw how I was playing the role that the enemy wants me to play in my most sacred relation on earth – with my husband. I saw the mistakes that I made - how the Eros love between the two of us has dominated and crushed our relationship and how that was causing grieve to the heart of God. I learnt the hard lesson (and I am STILL learning this lesson J) of submission to my earthly beloved, not for the sake of gaining anything, not even to gain my husband’s approval and love, but for the sake of appreciation for what God has given me - a wonderful husband with whom I can serve God.
This brief booklet, yet so aptly named clearly demonstrates His wisdom in the manifestation of the relationships He has ordained. The author thoughtfully delineates the history of love and lies – played out over the ages. Contrasting the divine relationships ordained in everlasting love and submission, with the tyrannical and selfish relationships we readily accept as ‘godly’ today. This short read is an excellent expose on the two opposing views, and allows the reader to clearly see why the deception has been developed, and how it has lead the world away into darkness - preventing humanity from embracing the true relationship with our Heavenly Father and His Son. Such a blessing to see the light in brighter glory!
