TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE VERSE STUDY

WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT TWO BECOME ONE?

DOES TWO BECOME ONE MEAN SOUL MATES?
 

Have you been looking for your soul mate without success? Are you wondering how long it's going to take before you finally find your soul mate? Maybe you're looking for your soul mate in all the wrong places? Were you meant to be unmarried?

Let's look for the answers to these questions together, shall we?

TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE VERSE STUDY ON TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE VERSE MEANING WITH TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE VERSE MESSAGE

There are scriptures in the Bible that support both being married and unmarried. Only the Lord knows which one is meant for you, so we're going to take a look at these scriptures so that you can be at peace, no matter what your destiny may be.

GODíS GOOD INTENTIONS

Being alone doesnít mean you have to be lonely. Did you know that loneliness is really caused by lack of understanding? Weíll look deeper into that in just a minute.

Many folks will tell you, Man wasnít meant to be alone.

 Genesis 2:18
And the LORD God said ... It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

So, God created Eve to help man not be alone.

Well, we all saw how that turned out. Iím certain all was just peachy with Godís plan Ö until the devil came along, and then Ö oh, you know the story. So, when the devil introduced sin into the world, Godís intention didnít change, but manís ability to carry out His intention in all happiness changed. If it wasnít for the devil, weíd all have our perfect companions, living in a perfect world of bliss.

But alas ... It didn't turn out that way.

TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE FACTS WITH TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE HOPE

Then thereís Solomon, the wisest man to ever live.

Note the word ďmanĒ as in huĎmaní.

Wisdom, he had Ö infallibility, he didnít.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Now letís take a look at Solomonís track record, shall we? Although Solomon had 700 wives, princesses, and 300 concubines, they turned away his heart to idolatry.

1 Kings 11:1-4
But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites: Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love
. And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart. For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father.

 Yes, Solomon had rewards for his labor (riches), someone to help him up when he fell down, and he was warm Ö but it sounds like he was also a lonely soul. In his own words:

Ecclesiastes 7:25-29
I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness: And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her. Behold, this have I found, saith the preacher, counting one by one, to find out the account: Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found. Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions (other ideas).

So, Solomon says that one upright person is extremely hard to find. But honestly now, you must give the man big points for determination. He was definitely a believer in that man should not be alone.

So, what happened to Godís good intention of man not being alone? Well, weíve gotten things a little confused in this matter. We search for the perfect companion in our lives, but we look for someone who is perfect in the flesh, and my friend, THAT is where the problem comes in. We have been taught to seek TEMPORAL relationships based on flesh.

ON THE OTHER HAND

TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE VERSE ALTERNATIVE WITH TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE VERSE CHOICE

There is also scripture that supports being alone. That is NOT to say that God contradicts Himself, but rather, that marriage is not for everyone. I encourage you to read this entire selection, because Paul points out some very interesting things that you're sure to find helpful in your curiosity about what the Bible has to say concerning being married or not.
 

1 Corinthians, Chapter 7
Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me:
It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud (deprive) ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency (lack of self-control). But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment (This is my own opinion). For I would (wish) that all men were even as I myself (unmarried). But every man hath his proper gift of God (his own calling), one after this manner, and another after that. I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide (remain) even as I. But if they cannot contain (control themselves), let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away (divorce) his wife. But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away (divorce her). And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean (illegitimate); but now are they holy (legitimate). But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage (obligated) in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife? But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches. Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised. Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God. Let every man abide (remain) in the same calling wherein he was called. Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather. For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord's freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ's servant. Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men. Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide (remain) with God. Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful. I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be. Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed (released) from a wife? seek not a wife. But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you. But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none; And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not; And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away. But I would have you without carefulness (concern). He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband. And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely (proper), and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction (other thoughts). But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry. Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well. So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better. The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord. But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.

I'd like to point out one particular part of this chapter:

1 Corinthians 7:32-34
But I would have you without carefulness (concern). He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband. 

Actually, in our day and age, and sadly enough, too many people who are unmarried AS WELL AS married care for the things of the WORLD, not the Lord, OR their soul mate. Could that be part of the problem in people finding their soul mates? 

Could it be that in the search for a soul mate, people have forgotten that Christ is the glue that holds the two halves together? When you're searching, is one of the questions you ask yourself, Is this the person that I will best serve the Lord with?

So many people get discouraged in their search for their soul mate, wondering why God doesn't bring them together, and the result is usually loneliness, depression, and sometimes it leads to other problems as well ... but have you ever stopped to think that maybe God is waiting until you understand everything that is involved in uniting with your soul mate for the rest of your life? In His infinite wisdom, do you suppose He knows whether or not you're ready ... or whether your mate is ready yet? Perhaps there are lessons that one or both need to learn in order to avoid heartache later.

WHAT ARE YOUR EXPECTATIONS?

TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE WARNING OF
TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE CONCERN CAUSING TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE DIVISION

What about the "better half" idea? I'm not talking about strength or importance or anything so worldly now, because the Bible is clear that the man shall rule over the woman, but does our pride insist that WE are the better half of the twain instead of the outlook that our mate should draw out the best in us no matter if we are a man or a woman, and that we aren't complete without them? 

Ephesians 5:25-33
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word, That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Wow! Let's dissect that scripture, okay? Paul is doing a little analogy here, with the husbands representing Christ, and the wives representing the church. Now, many women may feel inadequate when comparing themselves with the church and don't consider themselves pure enough to meet those standards. And guess what ... you're right, but if you thought you were, then you might have something to worry about. By the same token, there isn't a man that can live up to the standards of Christ either because we're all sinners. HOWEVER ... Paul gives us something to strive for here. The church wasn't perfect, but Jesus loved it and gave His life for it, so that by His Word, He might purify it for Himself. In the same way, a marriage cannot survive without the Word ... Jesus ... because He is what purifies it, and makes it holy. What is the next key ingredient? Love. Not infatuation, not selfish love, not love out of obligation, or as a favor ... But the kind of love you would die for ... Like the love Jesus has for the church. You haven't really lived, until you find something worth dying for ... but when you join in marriage, you become as ONE, so the thing that you together find worth dying for is not each other, but He that died for you ... Jesus Christ. I'd like to emphasize that in becoming ONE, the wife also possesses this kind of love in her heart for her husband. This highest level of human love that soul mates share is a mutual and natural sharing that continually grows.   

When you find your soul mate, there is no room for selfishness. You put them above yourself. If you can't honestly say in your heart that you not only feel the desire, but the NEED to put your mate above yourself, chances are ... that's not your soul mate. 

WAIT A MINUTE HERE!

If you're married, and you find yourself pondering on that last question, and wondering if you're with the right person, you may want to search your heart and ask, which one is it that you doubt? Is it your mate, is it yourself, or is it that you don't include the Lord as part of your unity? Are you just looking for a way out because you think there is someone out there who may fulfill your fleshly or worldly desires better, or do you sincerely think that you're not with the person that God intended you to unite with to serve HIM?

All too often, people rely on their soul mate for their happiness, and if they find discontentment in their heart about anything, the first thing they conclude is that it must be their mate's fault. If you're living the Lord's plan, your desire will be to make your mate happy, and in doing so, you will find happiness. Was Jesus ever concerned about His own happiness? Can you think of even one instance in His whole life that displayed one iota of selfishness of any kind? I'll answer for you ... NO! His only concern was serving His Father.

Peter tells us how soul mates are expected to regard one another:  

1 Peter 3:1-7
Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

What does this mean?

Wives, be submissive to your husbands, and if any (husbands) don't obey the Word of God, their soul will be saved by the obedience of the wife, as long as they witness your virtuous manner and your respect. It's not the way you wear your hair, or jewels or clothing, or anything you can see that God judges, but your humility is what God values. Submissiveness is the clothing that the women of ancient times wore, just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord (Genesis 18:12), whose daughters you are, as long as you do good, and remain faithful.

Likewise, husbands, live with them with intelligence, giving honor to the wife, respecting her physical weakness, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, so that your prayers will be answered.

As you can see, there is no room for selfishness ... Each one putting the other above themselves.

If your search for a soul mate doesn't include consideration of these last two things: #1) Including Christ, and #2) Becoming ONE, do you suppose that may be what's keeping you from finding your mate? Maybe the delay is God ... protecting you, your true soul mate, and anyone who isn't the soul mate that God intended for you, that you might be considering because of impatience.

Are you evaluating your potential soul mate by the world's standards ... Or God's?

Here are some questions that you may want to ask yourself before you get too deep into a relationship with someone. Some of these concern worldly things, but you do live in the world, and these issues may affect you at one time or another.

TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE LIST OF TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE QUALIFICATIONS AND TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE VERSE DANGERS

Is God first in their life?
Do you trust them?
Am I only interested in them for their money?
Is their appearance too important to me?
Are they forgiving?
Am I forgiving?
How do they feel about children?
In sickness and in health, forever ... with the same devotion and love?
Do they feel the same way?
Who will you spend Holidays with?
Are they flirtatious with other people?
Would they put you above themselves?
Do they have a past that will affect you?
Do you have a past that will affect them?

There are probably more questions that are equally as important that you should ask yourself, but these should give you a good idea of where to start. Another thing you may want to do, is to each make a list of the top 10 priorities in your life ... then compare them ... not to cause division, but to open communication about things that will affect you both in your relationship. You may want to do this regularly because from year to year, priorities can change, especially early on in a marriage when a family is growing.

 

WHERE ARE YOU LOOKING?

With all you just learned, do you feel like you're looking in the right places for your soul mate? Do you believe you'll find them in a bar? Are they hopping from chat room to chat room looking for you as well? Are you looking at their appearance and not at their heart? Are you asking God to lead you to them?

PERFECT TIMING 

What about the other side of the coin?  Maybe you're not looking for your soul mate yet. By NOT doing so, are you putting your future on the line, and theirs, because you don't feel like you're ready to settle down yet? Is it a righteous thing to do, or is it even a Christian thing to do, or is it taught by the world that one must party and get the single life out of their system before settling down and starting a family? What if your soul mate grows discouraged with waiting and believes that their soul mate is someone else because of your delay? Does this sound ridiculous? How do you think the children feel that are caught in the middle of the divorces of these mismatched mates ... do you think they'd call it ridiculous?

Searching for your soul mate isn't a dating game to pass the time of your youth, to 'play the field' or to boost your ego because you're known as an eligible bachelor or bachelorette. There are lives to consider, both your own, your mate's, and your future children's. And all those things that you may feel like you have to accomplish before you marry ... you may want to ask yourself ... or rather, ask God, if those things are really His will for you, or does He want you to spend your time serving Him united with your soul mate sooner than what you had planned.

If you put your trust in God, and follow His plan, your search will take on new meaning. He knows when the perfect time is. Everything the world offers may look exciting to you, but it's hard to see what waits behind it's deceptive promises. We can't see how temporal the world's promises are. They may satisfy us for a moment but inevitably, they will turn to garbage. Solomon often referred to this as vanity. But God's plan will truly fulfill you. When you follow God, you'll find what you're searching for, only you won't find disappointment and empty promises.

But what about those lonely times while you're waiting? I ask you ... what about Jesus? He's going to be an integral part of your relationship, right? Shouldn't you be getting to know Him better at this time? Every moment that you spend with Him will strengthen the unity that you three will have together, when the time comes that God has planned. He will teach you all about the real love that you will be sharing together, that can only come about with Him included.


WHAT ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS 
OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE?

Most unmarried people think it's necessary to have a boyfriend or a girlfriend, or a number of them. A lot of times it's not even because a friend pressured them into feeling this way, but the world has made people believe that if they don't, there's something wrong with them, or they're missing something. Some people think it makes them accepted too. Don't want to be a third wheel, y'know. And some people feel like being with anyone is better than being lonely, so they continue in relationships, potentially hurting others (even children if there are any from a previous marriage or relationship) as well as themselves, just to avoid loneliness.

You have to be honest with yourself now, about how weak the flesh is. What I mean by that is, that as human beings, even when we want to be good and innocent, we don't always succeed at it. They say, "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." This is something that as a Christian you must work hard to overcome.

I have to tell you what Jesus said:

Matthew 5:27-28
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

That means that if you desire it only in thought, you're just as guilty as if you had done it. Now, how many people do you know, who have had a relationship but NEVER had the thoughts that Jesus talked about? Does it seem so harmless anymore? Thoughts are things. They may be invisible to others, but I'm reminding you as your friend, God knows all of your thoughts, and everyone else's. You may be thinking that if this is done with love in your heart, that makes it all different. Folks, an intimate relationship outside of marriage is called fornication, and whether or not you believe it to be innocent because of love, Jesus said it is evil, and it defiles you. Defile means to make filthy or dishonor.

Mark 7:21-23
For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

Did you know that whether you are a woman or a man, you are the bride of Jesus Christ? I'd like to show you something that you'll find very interesting.

Revelation 19:7-9
Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of Saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

The Saints are the believers who have been righteous. They are the ones who have made themselves ready. Blessed are they! People, nobody is worth giving up your purity and your honor for. Give your purity and honor to Jesus. 

Let me explain further, that this doesn't mean that people should never get married. God intended people to get married and have families to fill the Earth. But there is ONE person who is your soul mate on this Earth, and to risk your honor and your purity in other relationships until you're united with that one soul mate because of loneliness, peer pressure, weakness, impatience, or any other reason is very sad.

How will you know who your soul mate is? Trust in God ... will He not bring them to you at just the perfect time? Be patient. Allow God to lead you. There are plenty of things to do for your Father in the meantime ... like glorifying Him!
