Satan has come in like a massive flood upon the minds of the “weaker vessel” to convince her that she needs all kinds of things that God never ordained or said were needs. In the unchanging divine economy, the most beautiful of all His creation, the woman, is to be the “helpmeet” (companion, helper, helpmate to accomplish GOD’s will) of the man (Genesis 2:18). A godly relationship must be founded and grounded in God’s Word – both the man and woman repenting and learning and DOING what God has stated in their respective, unique roles. We must get rid of all we’ve ever learned from the wicked worldly societies we’ve learned from (Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 4:23-25., etc.). If you are praying for that godly mate and yet are not diligently studying and learning to be a humble, serving-God-and-others disciple of Jesus, God sees it and will not plague someone else’s life by putting you with them. Those who aren’t learning to serve are devils, plain and simple. You are not ready and will not be till you lay down your own life and die. It’s time to take your own sins into account and cease pointing the finger (Job 19:28). You must trash the “What’s in it for me” motto which is for Satan’s children.

Marriage – Todd Tomasella

Lay down your life today. You’ve made religious excuses long enough. You’ve listened to the devil wolves like Osteen who promised you your best days are yet to come and yet you are an apostate counterfeit heading for hell. They refuse to preach repentance, the first word/command of the original Gospel (Matthew 3:2; 4:17; Acts 3:19, etc.). They lied to you and you listened to all because you are not yet real with God (John 3:19-21; 2 Timothy 4:2-4). If you don’t truly repent for real and you marry, you will be personally responsible before the LORD for much destruction – as in how you will be the reason for much hurt and sin in that fabricated marriage. If you choose today to truly go before God and repent, you will, without exception, trash what you’ve learned from the world and begin to allow the constitution of your heart and life to be rewritten with God’s Word. There are people all around us who’ve wasted the best years of their lives living with a prideful, self-serving heart – people who’ve prayed for a godly mate while refusing to be godly themselves said by Todd Tomasella.

Remarriage? What Does the Bible Teach?

divorce-remarriage

Summary of what the Bible teaches on divorce and remarriage.

Marriage was originally intended to be permanent when instituted by its Designer (Matthew 19:3-6). The following words are presented to bring to light what the Almighty has stated concerning the unfortunate issues that face the victims of marital sins and what instructions and liberties He has sovereignly granted in such cases. Through the preponderance of Scripture it becomes clear that just like our covenant relationship with the LORD, so marriage is conditional upon the continued fidelity of each party.

The late Donald Stamps, in his Life in the Spirit Study Bible commentary wrote:

“EXCEPT IT BE FOR FORNICATION. God’s will for marriage is one mate, one marriage for life (vv. 5-6; see Gen. 2:24, Sol. 2:7; 4:12; Mal. 2:14). To this Jesus gives an exception, namely ‘fornication.’ Fornication is marital unfaithfulness (Gk. porneia) and includes adultery or any kind of sexual immorality (5:32; 19:9). Hence divorce is to be permitted when sexual immorality is involved. The following are important biblical facts concerning divorce.

(1) When Jesus criticizes divorce in 19:6-7, He is not criticizing a separation because of adultery, but a divorce permitted in the O.T. in those cases where a husband discovered premarital unchastity after the marriage ceremony had taken place (Deut. 24:1-4). God’s desire in such cases was that the two remain together. However, He permitted divorce due to premarital unchastity because of the hardness of the people’s hearts (vv. 7-8).

(2) In the case of immorality after marriage, the O.T. law prescribed the dissolving of the marriage by executing both the offending parties (Lev. 20:10; Deut. 22:22). This, of course, would leave the innocent person free to remarry (Rom. 7:2; 1 Cor. 7:39).

(3) Under the new covenant the privileges of the believer are no less. Although divorce is a tragedy, marital unfaithfulness is such a cruel sin against one’s mate that Christ states that the innocent party has a proper right to end the marriage by a divorce based on adultery. He or she is free to remarry another believer (1 Cor. 7:27-28).

(4) Paul’s treatment of marriage and desertion in 1 Cor. 7:12-16 indicates that a marriage also may be dissolved by the desertion of an unbelieving spouse. He further indicates that remarriage by the believer in such cases is not sin (see 1 Cor. 7:15; 27-28).” Donald Stamps, Life in the Spirit Study Bible, p. 1443

QUESTION:

“So can married couples divorce for any reason?”

REPLY:

No. The Bible gives 2 clear reasons for divorce and so divorce is never a “I’m tired of her/him so I’m divorcing them!” Noooo. Marriage is ordained by God to be permanent and yet, abandonment and adultery/fornication are specific sins that can break that covenant if the offended party chooses (Matthew 19:9; 1 Corinthians 7:15-16, 27-28).
