In the Gospel of Mathew 5:31-32; Our Lord Jesus Christ gives us the criteria for divorce. You cannot divorce except for sexual immorality, PORNEIA. Porneia is a Greek word from the origination written script of the NEW TESTAMENT. The etymology of this word Porneia in proper English translation means PROSTITUTION. Now, there are male prostitutes as well, especially in Rome and Greece, so this statement of our Lord Yeshua is not only referring to women but also to men! Uhmm.
We heard Jesus clearly telling you and myself in chapter 19 verses 8-9 the twine of divorce and adultery. If you think that a divorce certificate has given you the audacity to remarry, you are living in sin. Marriage is forever, till death separates you.
There are so many divorcees in the house of God that are in spiritual leadership, polluting the temple of Jehovah, tarnishing the name of God. Instead of addressing this, the church gives excuses as to the reason why such persons should have spiritual authority in the house of God. Let me remind you of the word of God in the Book of 1Timothy chapter 3. Pastors are divorcing and remarrying because of greed/covetousness. Are you a thief?
One of the reasons why we lack the manifestation of spiritual power and miracles in the church today is disobedience to the will of God. Thus, pastors search for witchcraft power, magic etcetera, to conjure counterfeit miracles. There is little or no discipline in many so called “houses of God” anymore. If you are one of the perpetrators of any of these evil deeds, your punishment is waiting for you on the day of judgement. Oh, maybe you are thinking of repenting before the last day. Do you know whether you will live to see tomorrow! Your days are numbered.
Mark 10:5-12 tells us that what therefore God has joined together, let nothing (no one) separate. Verses 11 & 12 say that you are an adulterer if you remarry. In other sense, YOU ARE A THIEF? Romans chapter 6 verses one & two says that we should stop sinning. 1Corinthians 6, verses 9 & 10, remind us that some sets of people will not inherit the kingdom of God. Repent, for this moment may be your last chance. Today is the day of repentance. If you delay, tomorrow may be too late for you. Do not let Lucifer short-change your time in the New Jerusalem.
Let marriage be held in honour and let the bed (relationship with God, spouse, home (including Children) be undefiled. Remember, God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterers.
Please, let nothing separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus.
Hebrew 13:4; If you call yourself a Christian, examine yourself; Our Lord says in the gospel of Luke, chapter 16 verse 18 that anyone who divorces his/her spouse commits adultery, he who marries them is automatically an adulterer too. This is not a Pauline doctrine neither is it the tenet of Apostle Peter. It is our Lord Jesus Christ. You are only a Christian if you imitate Him. Am I judging you? John 12:48 is your judge. Yeshua said that many are they that call me Lord, but they are not mine because they do not do my father’s will and the word that I speak will judge them on the last day. “I can of myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge, and my judgement is righteous; because I do not seek my own will, but the will of the one (my Father) who sent me.
Cheating; Micah 6:10. An ephah is a measure of volume, and a short ephah is made smaller than the original for the purpose of cheating customers. In your business dealings with other people, are you treacherous in your dealings or do you act with integrity? How do you deal with your wife or husband? Is God at the centre of every relationship? Is God the centre of your marriage? Sometimes husbands and wives defraud each other because of selfishness. I have switched off from hearing many so-called ministers of God, who talk the foolishness of the world, pure motivational blunders and lies upon the altar of God by twisting God’s word.
You receive services that you are supposed to be paid for but find some ungodly excuses not to pay. God is your judge. James 5:4 says, not paying your labourers, just as you are stealing from God.
Will a man rob God, yet you are robbing HIM in tithe and offering? Malachi 3:8. You asked God to bless you, yet you are not ready to be obedient to His commandments. When you work all the hours God sends and do not have time to rest and go to church, you are robbing God. The fourth commandment that God commanded His children was to hallow the Sabbath day. This is the day to serve your God. Do you see yourself as a thief? Obedience is better than sacrifice.
You sing that song that says, “Abraham’s Blessings are mine……”. What about the obedience that comes with the blessing you are claiming? You had better not deceive yourself, there is no covenanted blessing of Abraham for those who sin and act in disobedience. You may gain some materials blessings through your worldly efforts, but that is not the kind of blessing that God gave to Abraham. In the blessings that God gave to Abraham, there is longevity, peace, love, favour, honour, wealth, all-round protection, etc. You cannot get all that in disobedience to God. Romans 13:9 is part of the criteria of Abraham’s blessings. You are a cheat and you are still hoping that those blessings will come to you in your earthily pride. The father of faith was living a holy life. God is a Spirit and you must serve (obey) Him in spirit. The pursuit of Holiness is the major key.
Romans 2:11 & 21; God is not a partial God, so He will not go against His words. There is no partial obedience. You evil pastors, repent, so that the flock that God put in your care will not go missing or die spiritually. Ephesians 4:28, Let him who stole steal no more, …….
Titus 2:10; Steal no more but showing all good fidelity; that you /they may adorn the doctrine of God, our Saviour, in all things.
Say “No” to ungodliness and worldly desired, and to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present age.
Malachi 3:5; God will judge all evil doers
Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men.
James 4:4 says “You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.”
1Timothy 1:9-10 also says “We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine
Well, the Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.
Finally, my Lord Jesus Christ says in the book of Revelation chapter 21 verse 8 that as for the cowardly, the untrustworthy, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those involved with the occult and with drugs, idol-worshippers, and all liars — their destiny is the lake burning with fire and sulphur, the second death.
I do not want you to go to hell in eternity. Today is your day of repentance. Do not delay.
Yeshua the Messiah the Way, the Truth and Life. No one can see God except through His Son. He is the Door to the Father.
If you truly want to accept my Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord & Saviour of your life, please say the following prayer.
Dear Jesus Christ, I am a sinner and I am sorry for my sins. I need you as my Saviour. Jesus Christ, save me, come into my heart as I am opening the door to my heart for you today. I receive you as my Lord and Saviour.
I am going into a new covenant Lord Jesus Christ, as I receive you now as my Lord forever. I believe you died for my sins. I believe you rose on the third day to give me eternal life. I am giving you all my heart as I surrender my life to you. Take total control of me now & forever, in your Holy name I pray. Amen.
Shalom, Shalom, Shalom!!!
