Does God Really Make Matches In Heaven And Executes It On Earth?

As A Christian Who Is On Date, Can I Expect God To Bless Mine?

Question: A young lady, Tamarin, will be joining me for the first date to Handel’s Messiah. I strongly sense the Holy Spirit’s leading in this. Please pray for the Holy Spirit’s blessing, favor, anointing over this date. Pray that the Lord will shower both of us with His love and great joy, deepen our relationship, unite our hearts. Pray for great wisdom and the words to say, for both of us. Pray we connect well. Pray that nothing will go wrong, and the Lord will guard our hearts, protect us, for an absolutely pure, Christ-centered relationship. Thank you.

Answer: Greetings to you in Jesus wonderful name!

I will be praying for you to do the will of God even as you lay yourself on the altar of the Lord by carrying your own cross in faith and perseverance (Rom 12:1-2; Luke 9:23-26).

What does dating someone mean?

“Dating” means you're going on dates. You are actively getting out there and meeting people and spending time with them. “Dating someone” means you're seeing somebody specific, with purpose and on a regular basis. ... You're spending time with a person (or persons) in hopes of finding a committed relationship.

Wikipedia The Free Encyclopedia says, "Dating is a stage of romantic relationships whereby two people meet socially with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a prospective partner in a future intimate relationship. It represents a form of courtship, consisting of social activities carried out by the couple, either alone or with others."

We are not like the world to consider dating on a regular basis even to the extent of physical touch which may or may not be having sexual relations. Clearly the word of God says, "It is good for a man not to touch a woman because of the temptation of sexual immorality that may arise out of such encounter, if you want to touch a woman deeper have your own wife or have your own husband in the Lord." (1 Cor 7:1-2, Abi's Translation).

Remember, for a Christian the period of courtship is not a precursor to engagement but rather a time to understand whether it is the will of God for both to get married through elderly, pastoral and parental liking and counselling. To get a promise from God after much praying and contemplation through the Bible is very much needed in order for us to look to it in the times of our future trials in our family life and to live victoriously through God's strength of His promise (Psa 119:49-50, 71). We also need to understand the legacy of faith of the family and also of the individual whom we are going to marry, because marrying a unbeliever or a uninformed lukewarm namesake unbeliever is to marry the devil as our mother-in-law and father-in-law. In our Christian Biblical culture we not only require or encourage people to wait until reaching a certain age before beginning dating, but also we want them to stay pure without sexual relationship of any kind which is what God expects of us before our marriage takes place (2 Tim 2:19-22; 1 Tim 6:10-11; Heb 13:4).

I would like to give you Some Important Biblical Points That You Would Remember While You Date :

1) Our bodies are the temple of God in which He dwells and so we are told to keep it holy and pure, and from being defiled by sin, world and Satan, so that we could build a worthy eternal residence for our holy God (1 Cor 6:17-18, 19-20; 1 Pet 1:15; 1 John 3:9; 2:15, 17; 1 Pet 5:8; 2:5, 9-10).

2) Keep your mind from being defiled by sexual thoughts and your hand from abusing yourself by the grace of God which is able to keep you from falling (Prov 4:23; Matt 5:29-30; Jude 1:24-25). And also even when you fail, God is able to help you stand up again and continue to walk in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, through his mercies that never ceases when you continue to approach His throne of grace in heaven, and that same throne of grace and mercies which is also in our heart whenever we are in need of it (Psa 34:18-19; 37:23-24; 1 Cor 10:13; Heb 10:19-25; 4:14-15, 16).

3) To date should never include a physical intimate touch of sexual relationship or even a deep touch in our mind that will stir up love before marriage and commitment (1 Cor 7:1-2; Sos 2:7), but rather it should be kept for the time after marriage for a lifetime of love until we die and go on to be with the Lord (Mal 2:16; Matt 19:3-9; 1 Cor 7:12-13).

4) When we accept a date, we should have prayed and prepared already through a confirmation from elders of the Church, parents if they are believers and even if the are still unbelievers to convince them of our choice, and then above all a assurance from the Lord who answers through the Word of His promises and the Holy Spirit conviction within us should be our highest priority (John 16:8; Matt 4:4; Luke 4:4; 1 John 2:27; 1 Thess 1:5; Acts 11:15-16, 17-18), also you should accept the circumstances that God allows to make you understand His will for your life and living, dreams, visions, etc...that will cement the assurance within you of God's choice (Matt 1:20; Acts 2:17; 10:9-16).

5) Finally marriage is the only institution of God that still remains as His, right from the Garden of Eden where God conducted the first marriage and said that it was very good (Gen 1:26-27; 2:7-8; 15, 18-25). Marriage is honorable among not only the Church people but also among all humans in the world, therefore the marriage bed should be kept undefiled. The defilement of fornication and adultery which is not only a sin against our prospective partner in date or the spouse in marriage, but it is mainly against God who will judge without fail very soon personally in everyone's life and living, and without fail He will judge all in the day of judgment for every human after their death to reward them or condemn them for their wicked and evil works (Heb 13:4). Be rewarded by God eternally for living happily or at peace with the wife of your youth all the days of your short pilgrimage on earth (Eccl 9:9-10; 12:13-14; Rom 12:18, 19, 20-21; Rev 22:12; 1 Pet 1:17)!

Praying for you and yours. 

May Jesus bless you more and more and continue to use you for HIS GLORY!

Much Love and Blessings....

About is one of the world's fast growing popular Bible study websites, attracting thousands of visitors daily from all around the world. We follow a unique revelatory apostolic seer writing from the Scripture with Rapture taking place any time after Mid-Point but before Great Tribulation begins through Antichrist, we use dispensational interpretation of Scripture and believe the Bible teaches salvation by grace through faith alone, and the eternal security of believers. We will focus mainly on apostolic teaching that will edify, equip and empower the saints to reach their full potential in Christ Jesus. Our goal is the edification, evangelism and empowerment of the last day Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is raising up before His triumphant return!
