Why God Actually WANTS You To Enjoy 'Ecstasy' In Your Marriage

God loves sex

God loves sex more than we mortals do. He devotes more space in the Bible to teach couples how to enjoy sex in marriage for a lifetime than any other area of marriage, including subjection and leadership.

God openly boasts about lovemaking as his proudest, most brilliant accomplishment in the creation:

Proverbs 30:18-19:
There are three things which are too wonderful for me,
Four which I do not understand:
The way of an eagle in the sky,
The way of a serpent on a rock,
The way of a ship in the middle of the sea,
And the way of a man with a maid.

This is not God's empty locker-room brag. It's God's brilliance for husbands and wives to enjoy!

Proverbs says the first three things are too wonderful to understand—an eagle soaring in the sky, a snake slithering across the mountain, or a ship sailing in the midst of the sea. But four amazing things are hidden from man's understanding.

Ancient man has always attempted to fly like the eagle; finally, the Wright Brothers solved the puzzle. Man continues to improve on their initial genius from airplanes, to rocket ships, to drones.

To scale a mountain, man must strap-on cleats and use safety lines. Even then, he can't go wherever he wants like the agile snake. Many men and women die trying to imitate the serpent.

Matthew Maury said, "If God said paths are in the sea, I'm going to find them" (Psalms 8:8). He spent eighteen years charting the ocean's currents. Today, worldwide commerce and travel depend on them.

The eagle, the snake, and the paths in the sea testify to God's superior intelligence in creating the world. Mankind seeks to replicate his divine wisdom, but the fourth is the most profound and difficult for man to figure out—"the way of a man with a maid."

It's more than a male hopping a female's bones ... animals do that!

It's more than a woman moaning and groaning ... prostitutes do that.

It's more than a vibrator shaking up an orgasm ... laboratory subjects do that.

None can compare to God's design for a man's gentle touch to stir up a maid's emotions and powerful sensations.

With machines to measure and watch men and women perform, sexologists often assume they've figured out sex. Alfred Kinsey thought he discovered the secret with his prostitutes. Masters and Johnson claimed success with their bionic experiments. But they all neglected the role of the mind and intimacy for giving wonderful orgasms to men and women. Now, using MRI and SPECT scans, scientists are finally beginning to understand the role the brain plays in sex.

God declares, "Ecstatic lovemaking is my crowning act of creation!"

He intends for husbands and wives to surrender their minds and hearts to each other to speak his beautiful language of love with their bodies. Clearly, God expects earthly marriages to feel like tastes of heaven.
