KISSING COUSINS STORIES STUDY

KISSING COUSINS STORIES THAT BECOMES LOVE THEN MARRIAGE ... IS IT A SIN?

A fellow Christian asked if Cousins were off limits as far as marriage.

The reason they asked is a law that is in the Old Testament given to the Israelites:
 

Leviticus 18:6-14
None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD. The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness. The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover. The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is thine own nakedness. The nakedness of thy father's wife's daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's sister: she is thy father's near kinswoman. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's sister: for she is thy mother's near kinswoman. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt.
 

Note that it did not say cousin ...

KISSING COUSINS STORIES WITH KISSING COUSINS STORIES TRUTH AND KISSING COUSINS STORIES MESSAGE

There were chosen men of God who DID in fact marry into their own family tree, including cousins.

Here is an example:

Rebekah was the mother of Jacob who is also known as Israel.
 

Genesis 32:28
And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

Rebekah had a brother named Laban.
 

Genesis 24:29
And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was Laban.
 

When Esau (Jacob's brother) traded up his birthright, he was VERY angry with Jacob and Rebekah sent Jacob away to live with her brother Laban in fear Esau would kill Jacob.
 

Genesis 27:43
Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; arise, flee thou to Laban my brother to Haran
... 

Jacob did go and Laban accepted him as he was BLOOD.
 

Genesis 29:14
And Laban said to him, Surely thou art my bone and my flesh. And he abode with him the space of a month.
 

Laban had two daughters named Rachel and Leah ... Jacob LOVED Rachel and agreed to work for Laban 7 years to have his daughter as a wife. Laban tricked Jacob and gave him Leah instead, but then an agreement was made to work another 7 years for Rachel to be his wife as well.
 

Genesis 29:15-30
And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy wages be? And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favoured. And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter. And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than that I should give her to another man: abide with me. And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her. And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in unto her. And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast. And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in unto her. And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an handmaid. And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me? And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn. Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years. And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also. And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her maid. And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.
 

The LORD caused Leah to have children from this union.
 

Genesis 29:31
And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, He opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.
 

 Then later God allowed Rachel to have a child ...
 

Genesis 30:22
And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb.
 

If you have done your math ... These women were Jacob's cousins and from them and their handmaids sprung forth the 12 tribes of Israel. God's chosen people at the time.

Now, I realize that things have changed and that many have their own opinions and that is cool. I am no man's judge.

Did God's chosen people violate God's laws by marrying into the bloodline? That is between them and God, but God DID bless them with children and those children are the root of people like King David.

Now, I can just imagine how eager a Pharisee may be to point out that Jacob married these cousins a few hundred years before the Law was given to Moses and miss the message within the words that God is not limited to man's interpretation of any law or any specific circumstance that He deems to allow.

So I best explain a lil more ...

Did God change His mind about allowing and blessing such unions as He did in Jacob's case in that short time? Or is the law itself just being misinterpreted? So the questions arise from the word "near" in the phrase "near of kin" ...

This may be why Jacob was allowed and blessed with children from the union. Therefore it may be that the LAW was not created anew, but rather was the way it was all along.

I wanna share another story as to get my REAL point across which is NOT Scripture Interpretation, but rather that God is judge and not man ...

There was a law against marrying a gentile (Other than Israelite) woman.

And yet Moses, who the law was given to by God ... DID.
 

Numbers 12:1
And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
 

Did God punish Moses?

NO ... He punished Miriam.
 

Numbers 12:9-10
And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed. And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.
 

Consider King David ... Found a married woman that he wanted. Committed adultery and had her husband killed ...

But, another child from that SAME union, was King Solomon.

I am not here to defend marriage to one's cousin ...

I am NOT saying that we should start taking a second look at our second cousins ...

I am here to defend God's right to show Love, Grace and Mercy at will and am giving examples of how He has done so in the past.

God allows what God wants to allow, when God wants to allow and no human can define the essence of another couple's marriage, just cuz of what they themselves believe or want to believe.

Love oft times conquers all cuz God is all about Love cuz God ... IS love.

Prayer is the answer.
