Every obstruction to your greatness they be moved tonight in Jesus name
As greatness is bestowed unto you - Acts 1:8, 8:5-8
From tonight, every where you go miracles will follow you. If you are a child of God because your father is great, you will be great. So pursue greatness vigorously, don't settle for anything less Habakkuk 2:2, Proverbs 22:29
The Lord said there is someone here who has been pursuing something for a long while before the end of this year you will say at last
Daddy asked me to explain something: The word wonderful is a combination of two words wonder and full.
Wonder - is that which causes you to wonder. It is what causes you to open your mouth when you don't want to. Daddy said a miracle is coming your way that will make you say Haaa!
Pursue greatness vigorously, refuse to die small
PP: All those who think you will never be great, will see you coming and tremble in Jesus name.
Everyone who thought you will come to them begging in the name of Jesus you will tell them I have enough
You will be great
But you must be willing to pay the Price 1 Corinthians 12:31.
How great do you want to be? Ordinary, very great or extremely great.
May God answer your prayer in Jesus name. Please when you become great don't forget God because you are going to be great there is nothing the devil can do about it solomon was born great, he achieved greatness but he said vanity upon vanity King Saul was not born great but was bestowed upon, but he end up a mad man because he forgot God

Pastor E A Adeboye Excerpt Sermon June 2019 Holy Ghost Service Swimming In Glory 6 - Born To Sing God's Praise

June Holy Ghost Service - Swimming In Glory “Born To Sing God’s Praise”
Ministering: Pastor E A Adeboye
Magnify His name, He's worthy to be praised! He's greater than the greatest and higher than the highest. He's is All in all. Richer than richest, Older than oldest, King of kings, Lord of lords,
The Holy One of Israel, the Most high God, The Almighty, The Alpha and Omega, Give Him glory! Thank You Ancient of Days!
Sing…...
Worthy, worthy is the Lamb, that was slain.
Glory, halleluyah! Praise the Lord!
Announcement:
July Holy Ghost Service:
Disciples' convention
Theme: Swimming in Glory 7
Sub-theme: Born to Be Great
In the name of Jesus, none of my children will die as tenants.
Bible text: Psalms 103:1-5 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
Psalm 130:3-4 If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? 4 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared
Isaiah 59:1-2 Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
If you want God to hear you when you praise Him, you need forgiveness.
You also need healing whether now or later. 1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Redemption is available for you.Hebrews 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
Jesus offers you redemption through His blood, You need the mercy of God.
Lamentations 3:22-23 It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. You need God to satisfy you with all you need. Matthew 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. If you truly consider this, not everyone born at the same time with you is alive today. It is in your own interest that you take the cup of salvation and call on Jesus, however when He's near. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved, Psalms 116:12-14. If you refuse God's invitation, be sure that trouble comes soon. Proverbs 1:20 Before it's too late, give your life to Jesus!
Psalm 40:1-3 It's only those who God answers can sing new songs. If you're yet to surrender to Jesus, it's not late for you: please come to Jesus to receive all the packages He has for you.
Psalms 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Man was created by God to sing. Declare this with me: “I will bless the Lord at all times, God praise shall continually be in my mouth.” This is why we have songs for virtually every occasion. The truth is if you listen to the song a man is singing, you can guess what he's going through. If you want to draw God near, sing His praise. Jeremiah 17:26, Jobs 19:25, no matter what you situation maybe, you can sing your way through Habakkuk 3:17-19. It doesn't matter what is happening, praise Him
HOW TO PRAISE GOD
1. Praise God with your mouth. When you are complaining and murmuring, you are not praising Psalms 89:1
It is only the humble that know how to praise God.
I will sing unto the Lord
A joyful song
I will praise His name
For the Lord is good
It is only those who knows how far God has taken them that know how to praise God
2. Praise with your hands. Psalm 134:1-3 When you lift your hands in surrender to God , no one dares hurt you. When you lift your hands to God, He looks down from heaven and carries you in His mighty hands. Psalms 47:1 clapping your hands to God means putting your enemy and challenges in between your hands and jamming the hands together. Isaiah 53:12 Even trees clap, clapping to Jesus means you'll cooperate with Him.
3. Praise with your legs “Bowing your knees means admitting that God is superior” Genesis 41, Psalms 95:6.
Praise with your legs “Dancing” Dancing to God means you're telling Him that He's your Owner and He owns you Exodus 15:21, 2 Sam 6:14-end. Psalms 149:1-3, Psalms 150:4
Psalms 95:7
We are singing unto the Lord
Singing Halleluyah
Dancing unto Halleluyah
Dancing Halleluyah
4. You can praise Him with your whole body. Revelation 4:10-11 How can you praise God with your whole body? By lying prostrate before Him. When you lie prostrate before the Almighty God, you are saying there is nothing I have that is not for you.
Rewards Of Praising God.
1. Divine Visitation. John 4:23-24
2. Earth shaking miracles. Acts 16:25-34
Oba mimo gba aso iya lara mi o, gba aso iya, mi o faso iya bora mo, gba so iya.”
“The Almighty God has taken the garment of suffering away and I won't be wearing it again.”
3. You get Open doors
4. Enemies become servants
5. Enemies are silenced
6. You get a blank cheque, 2 chronicle 1:6-10
The Lord said I should tell someone tonight, I will have mercy on You

Pastor E A Adeboye Excerpt Sermon May 2019 Holy Ghost Service Swimming In Glory 5

May 2019 Holy Ghost Service
Let's lift our hands to the Most High God and bless His name. Magnify His holy name, worship the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Worship Him!
🎶 The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Jehovah the Man of war,
His mercies endures forever and ever, oh, praise His Holy name! 🎶
I commend my children for an excellent job well done tonight in teaching and charging the people of God. 
Topic: Swimming In Glory 5 - Born To Win
Ministering Pastor E A Adeboye
Bible Text: Rom 8:31-39
Tonight we will be concentrating on verse 37. Before we go deep we would want to share with some group of people why they need to be born again. Because they need peace.
There are three basic types of peace you must have urgently:
  1. Peace with God Psalm 7:11 God is angry with the sinner every day. Proverbs 16:4 the wicked is made reserved for the day of evil..." Romans 5:1 we have peace with God through Jesus Christ. Until then God is angry with you on a daily basis.
  2. Peace in God John 16:33 if you are in Christ you have peace. If a man is not in Christ and you hear the news all over the world, you will be scared. But those of us in Christ, we have peace in God. Jesus Himself said in John 14:27 that this peace is uncommon
  3. Peace of God. Philippians 4:7 this type of peace keeps you stable despite all external signals. 
You can have all three if you surrender your life to Jesus. Romans 14:17
If you are here and you have not made peace with God and you need these three types of peace. Come forward. 
Romans 8:37 says we are more than conquerors. We are created equal but we are not born equal. The day the baby of an elephant is born is already bigger than the rat. These are two creatures from God but are not the same. The elders says an elephant never gives birth to a dwarf. Romans 9:10-15 Two children still in the womb: One was born to win and the other born to loose. Some are born to loose and some are born to win
Romans 9:17 Pharaoh was born to lose. This is the major reason ALL should come to Christ. So that even if you are born to lose it can be changed 2 Corinthians 5:17
Born to win means born to fight. We conquer in WAR. The God we serve is not a civilian - Exodus 15:3, Psalms 24:7-10. From the day you are born until the day you die, it is WAR! Are you a Christian? 2 Timothy 2:3-4 and 1 Timothy 6:12, 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 confirms warfare. But the war is fixed at our favor. You saw a little bit of it tonight and I am not surprised. In 1 John 4:4 - we are little but we "HAVE" overcome them...”
You must fight sickness. The moment you give your life to Jesus, you are equipped to win. Doctors will tell you about the white blood cells. Their assignment is to fight what does not belong in your body.
You must fight any sickness that is trying to send you to an early grave. Tell your neighbor, "I refuse to die before my time". Philippians 1:23-26. I am not leaving this world before I finish my assignment. 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 2 Kings 20:1-10
It is written according to Psalms 118:17 "I shall not die but live to declare the works of the Lord". 
You must fight over poverty
Deuteronomy 15:11, but he didn't say you'll be one of them
Leviticus 25:35 - which do you prefer: the one who is helped or the one who is helping?
 The fight against poverty is already fixed (settled) according to 2 Corinthians 8:9.
God even told you his thoughts about your prosperity in 3 John 2. - John 10:10, Psalm 92:12-14, Deuteronomy 28:11-12
 PP: Everything I need to serve you, provide abundantly. Amen
 The bible say sow and you shall reap, give and it shall be given. But the bible also said you must be diligent - Proverbs 22:29
In the Name that is above every other name, the idea that will lead you to financial breakthrough shall be revealed to you.
 The Lord ask me to tell you that henceforth, the answer is yes!
The battle for your total freedom is fixed. James 4:7.
You must be determined to resist the Devil steadfastly. 1 Peters 5:8-9, Numbers 33:55, Joshua 11:22, 1 Samuel 17:1-16, 2 Samuel 21:15-22
Tonight you and I are going to face every Goliath left in our lives. If you observed you are not making progress the way you ought to, that is not natural but forces you cannot see at work.
"You won’t fail again: No more defeat in Jesus Name".
"I decree in the name above every other name, you will not borrow again".
 In the name of the One who sent me, before tomorrow morning, every one of you will sing a new song in the name of Jesus.
"Every force blocking your way shall be moved away in Jesus Name."
 VICTORY OVER ATTACKERS
The Lord said there is someone here tonight, “the people you have helped will come back to bless you."
Where you have failed your children will succeed.
The battle is fixed and so you shall win Isaiah 54:17, 54:15
 Numbers 16:1-34 talks about a tragic judgement over those who plot against the Lords anointed. Psalms 23:5 means God will paralyze your enemies so you can take the glory. Acts 13:6-12 talks about judgement against someone who stood against Paul.
“Anyone expecting you to die, you will be there at their funeral”.
 In Matt 15:21-28 a woman came to Jesus to present a case before Jesus, she needed help. She persisted in her plea.  This is for someone here tonight, “You're not going back the way you came.” John 2: 1-11 The wedding at Canaan and galilee. You must fight till every NO becomes a YES. Matthew 15:25-28, John 2:1-11 and Fight till every "not yet" becomes a "now" Mark 2:1-12.
BEFORE I PRAY FOR YOU TO PRAY A PRAYER OF AGREEMENT.
"Father I am in agreement with my neighbor, give him total victory".
"Father, we are in one accord: in all our churches, no more cancer".
"Father, in all our families we decree: no more premature deaths".
"Father! I agree with my neighbor, from now henceforth let there be open doors in Jesus Name".
My Father the Lord of Host who never lost a battle, accept our thanks in the Name of Jesus. I stand as your representative, I want to make some decrees. As I make them, establish it. 
CLOSING PRAYERS…
In the name that is above every other name, none of you will die before your time.
The Lord will clear your debts.
The life in abundant that Jesus Promised, you will begin to experience it.
You will never know defeat again...
You will never know sorrow again...
No more premature death....
No more cancer in all the churches.
Every Goliath will fall at your feet
All who gather against you will fall by you.
God will make you victory total
You will serve God. You will find it easy to serve God
None of your families will go to hell.
He will help you to win souls in Jesus Name

Altar Call Text:
Bible Text: Luke 7:36-38  And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.
And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,

Sermon Text: Genesis 37:3-1
Genesis 37:3-11  Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.
And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.
And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.
And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:
For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.
And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.

Vs 18-20 - No matter what the enemy does, the counsel of God will stand.

The purpose of God shall be fulfilled in your life
Vs 23 - 28: They threw Joseph into the pit
1. No pit so deep that is beyond the everlasting arm - Deuteronomy 33:27

2. God knows the end from the beginning, so he went ahead of Joseph to make the pit dry - Acts 15:18, Psalm 23:1-2

3. The Lord will make sure they will not bury you alive. Is the enemies of God that are buried alive not his children - Numbers 16:25-33

As long as you are still breathing you will come out of the pit - Ecclesiastes 9:4

Genesis 39:1-6: He was sold in slavery - Even in slavery he began to shine - John 8:32 & 36, Mathew 6:24

Genesis 39:20-23: They threw him into prison - Even in prison he was put in charge

No matter the situation he will make a way out as no door that can hinder the door - John 14:6, Acts 16:25-40

Before Joseph went to Prison he was a Dreamer, before he came out of the prison he became an Interpreter of dream

This very day your promotion begins - Genesis 41:1-44, Daniel 2:1-49, 6:1-3

Word of Knowledge

And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual || Lesson 21 - Successful Parenting


RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual
Date: 20 January 2019
Lesson 21
Topic: Successful Parenting

Memory Verse: “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” – Ephesians 6:4

Bible Passage: 1 Samuel 2:12-17, 29-30 KJV
1 Samuel 2:12-17:
12 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD.

13 And the priests’ custom with the people was, that, when any man offered sacrifice, the priest’s servant came, while the flesh was in seething, with a fleshhook of three teeth in his hand;

14 And he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fleshhook brought up the priest took for himself. So they did in Shiloh unto all the Israelites that came thither.

15 Also before they burnt the fat, the priest’s servant came, and said to the man that sacrificed, Give flesh to roast for the priest; for he will not have sodden flesh of thee, but raw.

16 And if any man said unto him, Let them not fail to burn the fat presently, and then take as much as thy soul desireth; then he would answer him, Nay; but thou shalt give it me now: and if not, I will take it by force.

17 Wherefore the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD: for men abhorred the offering of the LORD.

1 Samuel 2:29-30:
29 Wherefore kick ye at my sacrifice and at mine offering, which I have commanded in my habitation; and honourest thy sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the chiefest of all the offerings of Israel my people?

30 Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.

INTRODUCTION:
Parents have the duty to raise their children in love. God expects parents to bring up children who will love Him, live for Him and make positive impacts I’m the world. Deut. 6:5-7. While there are different styles of parenting in the world, believers should note that successful parenting is achievable.

LESSON OUTLINES

    Different parenting styles
    God’s style of parenting

DIFFERENT PARENTING STYLES

PARENTING LOVE DISCIPLINE
STYLES

1. Permissive High Fearful

2. Uninvolved Low Low

3. Authoritarian Low High

4. Influential High High

FELLOWSHIP

1. Permissive Fearful

2. Uninvolved Forsaken

3. Authoritarian. Fighting

4. Influential Friendly

The Permissive Parents:

This types of parents may give verbal comments to their children, but will take little or no action to correct them when they misbehave. Such parents usually equate discipline with meanness. They give in to most of the desires of their children. Eli, the priest, and Samson’s parents are biblical examples of permissive parents. (1 Sam. 2:12-17: 29-30; Judges 13:1-2; 14:1-3).

The Uninvolved Parents:

Such parents are self-oriented and they neglect their responsibilities. They have little or no time to attend to their children but rather pursue other concerns of life like career, business, ministry, pleasure etc. They show little or no concern for well-being of their children and hardly communicate with them. King David and Samuels were examples. (1King 1:5-6; 2Sam. 2:14:28; 1Sam. 8:1-5)

The Authoritarianism Parents

They run home with authority (iron fist) Children in such home have no voice or input whatsoever. That are “to be seen and not to be heard”. An authoritarian parent will use anger and harsh discipline to keep control. This behaviour may frustrate or causes child to lose heart and lack self-esteem. (Col. 3:21)
King Saul was an example. (1 Sam. 20:30).

The Influential Parents

The parents combine love and discipline without compromising either. They have clear boundaries but also very loving.

Children brought up in such homes are usually happy capable and successful. Mordecai, the adoptive parent of Esther. (Esther 2:1-10), Timothy’s mother and grandmother (2Tim.1:5-7; 3:14-15) are examples of influential parents in the bible.

GOD’S STYLE OF PARENTING

God, as the father of all, has clearly shown us the example of how to successfully raise our children. We need to follow in His footsteps. The Father loves and wants us to be involved with His children (Jer. 31:3; John 15:15; 16:27). He communicates clear instructions for us to follow(Pro. 4:3-4).
He forgives and show mercy when we fail(Heb. 8:12). He disciplines and corrects us when we disobey and rebel against Him(Pro. 3:12; Heb.12:7).
The Father models the truth (John 13:15) He encourages and comforts us. (1Thess. 2:11-12). He protects us from harm. (Heb. 11:23). He provides for His children. (Ps. 78: 23-25; 2Cor. 12:14).

CONCLUSION
Parents need to be careful not to either be extremely legalistic or
permissive. God’s pattern of parenting is balanced by His love, affirmation and grace.

QUESTIONS

    Explain two parenting styles.
    What lessons can we learn from God’s style?

RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual
Date: 13 January 2019,
Lesson 20
TOPIC: Love Dynamics in Marriage

MEMORY VERSE: “By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.” – Proverbs 25:15

BIBLE PASSAGE: Genesis 2:18-25 KJV (RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual 13 January 2019)

18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

LESSON INTRODUCTION:

Many marriages ate needlessly failing because the marriage partners lack the knowledge of relationship dynamics. Hosea 4:6. Most couples, sadly to say are ignorant on purpose. In this study, we will be looking at the scriptural principles and the love language that must characterize our marital relationships.

LESSON OUTLINES:

    SCRIPTURAL PRINCIPLES GUIDING MARRIAGE
    UNDERSTANDING THE “LOVE LANGUAGES”

1. SCRIPTURAL PRINCIPLES GUIDING MARRIAGE

Couples in marriage should understand that the image of God is best expressed in the combination of male and female (Gen.1:27). The God-designed differences between male and female are to be accepted as complimentary and not as competitive. (Gen.2:18). Marriage is not a human institution, it is divine.(Gen. 2:21-23). It is to be a relationship of companionship completion and communion (Gen.2:21-25; Matt.19: 5). Marriage was design designed by God to be a permanent, mutual and covenant relationship.(Matt. 19:6). God’s intent is for marriage to be an inestimable source of joy and fulfillment. In fact, marriage is a major part of God’s plan to bring redemption to human race. The environment of the marriage relationship provides the vehicle for the incarnation of the Saviour, Jesus Christ. (Gen. 3:15; 22:18; Ephesian 5:31-32).

2. UNDERSTANDING THE “LOVE LANGUAGES”

Many problems in marriage, usually occur due to the inability of the partners to understand each other’s love language. ‘Love language’ is Ann expression that makes you or your partner feel loved.

There are five primary love languages. They are:

i. Quality Time Together: Spending time with each other and talking without interruptions, going out and about, having fun together, celebrating birthdays and wedding anniversaries, etc. Let courtship experience continue. (Gen.26:8).

ii. Acts of Service: Do things you know your spouse would like you do. For example cooking meals, helping each other especially in household chores, etc. (Eccl.4:9).

iii. Exchange of Gifts: Express your love for each other through giving/receiving of gifts no matter how small. (1 Sam.1:5; Prov.17:8).

iv. Words of Affirmation: Couples must be consistent in saying I love you, I am sorry,Thank you, You look nice in that dress etc. to each other. (Song of Solomon 1:15; 4:1,7).

v. Physical Touching: This is a way of communicating emotional love, e.g. holding hands, kissing, pecking, embracing, patting, necking, nibbling, sitting close to each other etc.(Gen.26:8; Song of Solomon 1:2).

CONCLUSION: Couples should discover and express to each other what they have discovered as their primary love language that they both enjoy.

QUESTIONS:

    Mention at least 3 scriptural principles of marriage.
    Identify the primary love languages needed in marriage.

ASSIGNMENT: Find out five (5) major differences between the scripture-based marital principles and the world/carnal-based marital principle.

TEXT REVIEW: GENESIS 2:18-25 “DIVINE SURGICAL OPERATION”

The mystery of togetherness in marriage is divine. This is the explained in the light of the following references:

iii. God performed the surgery and reconstructed the rib.”And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman”. Gen.2:22.

iv. God translated the bone to bones and flesh. Gen. 2:23a

v. The only assignment which Adam did in the process was to label the new creation by naming it and to accept it. “And Adam said…..,she shall be called a woman….shall cleave to his wife”. Gen.2:23-24.

vi. Both the man and the woman began to cohabit ( unity). They clave(unity). They were not ashamed (unity). Gen.2:24-25.
