TWO BECOMING ONE
WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT TWO BECOMING ONE?
DOES TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE VERSE MEAN THE TWO ARE 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,
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
will tell you, Man wasnít meant to be alone.
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
Well, we all saw how that turned out. Iím certain all was
just peachy with Godís plan ... until the devil came along,
and then ... 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 BECOMING ONE MEANING
Then thereís Solomon, the wisest man to
Note the word ďmanĒ as in huĎmaní.
Wisdom, he had ... infallibility, he didnít.
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
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
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
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.
Solomon had rewards for his labor (riches), someone to help
him up when he fell down, and he was warm ... but it sounds
like he was also a lonely soul. In his own words:
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

TWO BECOMING ONE IS NOT MANDATORY
There is also
scripture that supports being alone. That is NOT to say that
God contradicts Himself, but rather, that marriage is not
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.
Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me:
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
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
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.
TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE VERSE ON RELATIONSHIPS
TWO BECOMING ONE EXPECTATIONS
What about the
"better half" idea? I'm not talking about strength or
importance or anything so worldly now, 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?
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
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
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
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.
And always remember ... God is watching.
Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the
Lord hath been witness between thee and the
wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt
treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the
wife of thy covenant.
And did not he make one? Yet had he
the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That
he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to
your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against
the wife of his youth.
As you can see, there is no room for
selfishness ... Each one should be 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
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 VERSE HEAD SCRATCHERS
TWO BECOMING ONE IMPORTANT MATTERS
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
ARE YOU LOOKING?
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
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
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.
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.
TWO BECOME ONE BIBLE VERSE SUMMARY
TWO BECOMING ONE TRUTH
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:
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.
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,
All these evil things come from within, and defile the
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.
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
Let me explain further, that this doesn't
mean that people should never get married. God intended
some 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!
