MATING: Lay and Knew

Lay and Knew are Biblical terms for sexual intercourse. Lay is used for extra marital affair or when a woman is forced (raped) Knew is used in marriage when a man meets his wife and turned out to be a child. Though so many things had been written by so many great authors across the globe, yet I want to make a few sensible points as it has been laid on my heart.

  • God ordained it between a man and his wife. The first kind of being that had sex were married couple. It’s not a practice of boys and girls; it’s to seal up the intimacy between a man and his wife.
  • It’s an Ordained Authority and Blessing from God: Genesis 1:26-You will notice that immediately God made them male and female, he blessed them to multiply and replenish the earth. There wasn’t any introduction of marriage there. That means sexual intercourse is a blessing and authoritative that when a male and female comes together no matter who they are to themselves mating may occur. Sex is authoritative, it’s a movement, it’s beyond man and no man can do without it for long because it’s a burning, its fire and it’s a force because God authorized it. Therefore if you want to live a disciplined and chaste life then get married properly and stay in your marriage. Sexual feeling is a burning every man and woman carried in their body. But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion. 1 Corinthians 7:9 NIV 


You will pay for it if you do. Sexual intercourse is not an evil. Many had spite sex and have suffered for using their vocal cord wrongly. We need to note that both the married and whore (sexually perverted) engage in sex, so it takes sense of responsibility and respect for one’s partner to cleave to one. It takes grace of salvation for any man to look away from other women and share his body with his wife only. Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Whenever you find anyone especially teenagers that has been sexually abused and resulted into pregnancy or down their psyche; please through wisdom bring them back to their normal self in Christ and labour to boost their moral. One of those ways God shows Love to those that had been once wayward is by giving them a saint (sexually not once harassed, a virgin) brother or sister to marry in order to seal up their salvation.

Jesus is always on hand to help us in times of temptation. He won’t allow us to fall. James 1:11-16 

Sex is appealing and deceptive. Having sexual intercourse with the externals is degrading and virtue destroying. 


  • Don’t spite on sex; it’s an act created by God to seal up intimacy between a man and his wife and for procreation.
  • Beware of opposite sex intimacy: Some brothers ended up sleeping with their sisters because of too close intimacy, some husband slept with their wife’s sister because of intimacy let alone of boss having sexual affair with their secretary and evil going on in the midst of business colleagues. In fact Reuben lay with his father’s concubine. And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father’s concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve: Genesis 35:22. The honour he has for his father died at the point of temptation. And he got a lifetime gift for his foolish act, in Genesis 49:3-4 which says  Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power: *Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

I leave the remaining I would have written to your imagination:

I’m out of here, the room is hot!
