The beginning of the Gospel of Iesus Christ, the Sonne of God,
As it is written in the Prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
The voice of one crying in the wildernesse, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Iohn did baptize in the wildernesse, and preach the baptisme of repentance, for the remission of sinnes.
And there went out vnto him all the land of Iudea, and they of Ierusalem, and were all baptized of him in the riuer of Iordane, cōfessing their sinnes.
And Iohn was clothed with camels haire, and with a girdle of a skin about his loines: and he did eat locusts and wilde honie,
And preached, saying, There commeth one mightier then I after me, the latchet of whose shooes I am not worthy to stoupe downe, and vnloose.
I indeed haue baptized you with water: but hee shall baptize you with the holy Ghost.
And it came to passe in those daies, that Iesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of Iohn in Iordane.
And straightway comming vp out of the water, hee saw the heauens opened, and the Spirit like a doue descending vpon him.
And there came a voice from heauen, saying, Thou art my beloued Sonne, in whom I am well pleased.
And immediately the Spirit driueth him into the wildernesse.
And he was there in the wildernesse fourtie daies tempted of Satan, and was with the wildbeasts, and the Angels ministred vnto him.
Now after that Iohn was put in prison, Iesus came into Galilee, preaching the Gospell of the kingdome of God,
And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdome of God is at hand: repent ye, and beleeue the Gospell.
Now as he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the Sea (for they were fishers.)
And Iesus said vnto them, Come ye after me; and I will make you to become fishers of men.
And straightway they forsooke their nets, and followed him.
And when hee had gone a little further thence, hee saw Iames the sonne of Zebedee, and Iohn his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.
And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired seruants, and went after him.
And they went into Capernaum, and straightway on the Sabbath day he entred into the Synagogue, and taught.
And they were astonished at his doctrine: for hee taught them as one that had authority, and not as the Scribes.
And there was in their Synagogue a man with an vncleane spirit, and he cried out,
Saying, Let vs alone, what haue we to doe with thee, thou Iesus of Nazareth? Art thou come to destroy vs? I know thee who thou art, the holy One of God.
And Iesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.
And when the vncleane spirit had torne him, and cried with a lowd voice, he came out of him.
And they were all amased, insomuch that they questioned among themselues, saying, What thing is this? What new doctrine is this? For with authoritie commandeth he euen the vncleane spirits, and they doe obey him.
And immediatly his fame spread abroad throughout al the region round about Galilee.
And forth with, when they were come out of the Synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon, and Andrew, with Iames and Iohn.
But Simons wiues mother lay sicke of a feuer: and anone they tell him of her.
And he came and tooke her by the hand, and lift her vp, and immediately the feuer left her, and she ministred vnto them.
And at euen, when the Sunne did set, they brought vnto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with diuels:
And all the citie was gathered together at the doore.
And he healed many that were sicke of diuers diseases, and cast out many deuils, and suffered not the deuils to speake, because they knew him.
And in the morning, rising vp a great while before day, hee went out, and departed into a solitarie place, and there prayed.
And Simon, and they that were with him, followed after him:
And when they had found him, they said vnto him, All men seek for thee.
And he said vnto them, Let vs goe into þe next townes, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I foorth.
And he preached in their Synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out deuils.
And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling downe to him, and saying vnto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me cleane.
And Iesus mooued with compassion, put foorth his hand, and touched him, and saith vnto him, I will, be thou cleane.
And assoone as he had spoken, immediately the leprosie departed from him, and he was cleansed.
And he straitly charged him, and forth with sent him away,
And saith vnto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but goe thy way, shew thy selfe to the Priest, and offer for thy clensing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony vnto them.
But he went out, and beganne to publish it much, and to blase abroad the matter: insomuch that Iesus could no more openly enter into the citie, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from euery quarter.

Motdaugrand 's is this what you were thing of? Revelation 7:1-41 And after these things, I saw foure Angels standing on the foure corners of the Earth, holding the foure windes of the earth, that the winde should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.2 And I saw another Angel ascending from the East, hauing the seale of the liuing God: and he cried with a loud voice to the foure Angels to whom it was giuen to hurt the earth and the Sea, 3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till wee haue sealed the seruants of our God in their foreheads.4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundreth and fourty and foure thousand, of all the tribes of the children of Israel

It is not for us to quibble about marriage and the prospects of that subject. Our focus is to be on the Lord at all times. Those who seek our Lord can determine what is man made and what is Divine. Be not troubled by mans rule. Seek to know your Heavenly Father in all ways and you will know your path. People do not want to know the discipline of His Holy Word. This world would unravel all of it. Give thanks for your eternal soul. Glory be to Lord God Jehovah, Lord Jesus Christ The Indwelling Holy Spirit.

The first few verses of this chapter talks of John the Baptist 's being the messenger that prepared the way for Jesus. I 'm remembering somewhere in Scriptures reading about 144,000 who will apparently be preparing the way for Jesus ' return....wishing I could remember what part of Scripture I saw that.
