“Remarriage – 303” …Blog [3-or-?]
May I ask you a question…? You who are reading these blogs… “Are we as a people or nation = [1.] getting better… or [2.] getting worse?” It is my belief that the ‘Spiritual’ temperature of America… has gone from cooling off to… “Luke Warm!” Many of our attributes and stands on spiritual subjects can be seen in our parallel with the Spiritual decline of Israel, in the Old Testament. If you have done any reading & studying in the Word of God, you probably have come to this same conclusion.
*** (Revelation 3:15-16) I know your works, = that you are = ‘neither’ = cold nor hot. = I would = that you were = cold or hot.
(Rev 3:16) So because = you are ‘lukewarm’, = and = neither cold nor hot, = I will = ‘vomit’ you = out of My mouth.
*** (Matthew 24:10-11-12) And then = many will be offended, = and = will ‘betray’ = one another, = and = will ‘hate’ = one another.
(Mat 24:11) And = ‘many’ false prophets = will rise = and = deceive ‘many’.
(Mat 24:12) And = because ‘iniquity’ [lawlessness] = shall abound, = the love of many = will become ‘cold’.
The Truth of these verses… is quite ‘eye–opening’ when you look at the Greek NT, and see that the word… “Love –Matt 24:12”… is that ‘Agape Love’; that can only be channeled by the Holy Spirit of God, in the True Believers Life! This fact will really be a shocker to those that study the Word of God. Imagine… “Lawlessness Abounding”… among those that call the Blessed Name of Christ Jesus…! When that happens to we who are His children and what happens to the rest of Society… when fail to be the Light & Witness Christ intended for His children…?
*** (1Peter 4:17-18-19) For = the ‘time’ has come = for the judgment = to begin ‘from’ = the house of God. = And ‘if’ = it first begins from us, = what will be = the ‘end’ = of those ‘disobeying’ = the gospel of God?
(1Pet 4:18) And ‘if’ = the righteous one = is ‘scarcely’ saved, = where shall the ungodly = and = the sinner = ‘appear?’
(1Pet 4:19) Therefore = let those who ‘suffer’ = according to = the will of God = commit their souls = in ‘well-doing’, = as to a faithful “Creator”.
When ‘Lawlessness’ abounds… and the “Agape Love” of the saints grows cold, there will be a ‘suffering’ for those; that take a stand for the Holy Word of God! Many who say they Love Jesus, hardly ever… ‘Read & Study’… His Word; in order to grow in His Love and Grace! It is the Word of God, which brings… “Life & Truth”… to our = “Souls, Hearts and Minds”. Without a ‘daily’ feeding in His Word, we become malaise, heartless and cold. Say it isn’t so…?
*** (2Corinthians 4:16) For this cause = we ‘do not’ faint; = but ‘though’ = our outward man perishes, = yet the ‘inward man’ = is being renewed = day by day.
*** (Romans 10:17) Then faith = is of hearing, = and hearing = by the “Word of God”.
*** (John 15:3) Now you = are clean = through the Word = which I [Jesus] = have spoken to you.
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, = the ‘days’ come, = says the Lord Jehovah, = that = I will send a ‘famine’ = in the land; = not a famine of bread = nor a thirst for water, = but = of ‘hearing’ = the Words of Jehovah [God].
In the two previous blogs… we looked at God’s standard for Marriage, ‘one man and one woman’: for Life! We see daily, the moral decay that takes place when society; replaces God’s Word… with society norms and practices. The results is a worldly, driven by pleasures and entertainments = against what God has said in His Word. So too, the Love [Agape] in the hearts of believers, has become cold and ineffective. Their closest relationships, ‘marriage and family’… is replaced with violations of the Holy Word of God. So too, this mindset is passed on to their progeny.
*** (Exodus 34:6-7) And Jehovah = passed by before him [Moses] = and proclaimed, = Jehovah! = Jehovah God, = merciful and gracious, = long-suffering, = and = abundant in goodness = and = Truth,
(Exodus 34:7) keeping mercy for thousands, = forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, = and = Who will by ‘no means’ = clear the guilty, = visiting the iniquity of fathers [Parents / Family] = on the sons, = and on the sons of sons, = to the third = and = to the fourth generation.
*** (2Chronicles 25:2-3-4) And he did the right = in the eyes of Jehovah, = but = ‘not] = with a perfect heart.
(2Chron 25:3) And it happened = when the kingdom was made sure to him, = he ‘killed’ his servants = who had killed his father, = the ‘king’.
(2Chron 25:4) But = he ‘did not’ = kill their sons, = but = ‘as it is written’ = in the Law = in the book of Moses, = where Jehovah ‘commanded’, = saying, = The father ‘shall not’ = die for the sons [sins], = nor shall the sons = die for the fathers [sins], = but ‘every man’ = shall die = for his ‘own’ sin.
There has been a false teaching… about ‘generational sins’ passed on to the family, by the parents. Many excuse away… “Sin/Sins”… saying, “I couldn’t help myself!” That wrong teaching is negated by those verses in… “2Chronicles 25:4”. The human ‘free will’… is not negated by your parents ‘sin/sins’. You cannot use it for your ‘excuse’ for your divorce; before God and His Word. Many want to blame ‘others’… for their ‘own’ decisions. Flip Wilson, a comedian of some years ago used to say, “The Devil made me do It!” That would mean that you have ‘No Choice’… as Lucifer the anointed Cherub, before his fall in rebellion against God = had control over your life. “YOU”… and you ‘alone’… have that ‘free will’; to choose ‘to do’… “Right or Wrong!”
*** (Exodus 20:19-20) And they said to Moses, = You ‘speak’ with us, = and we will hear. = But = ‘let not’ = God speak with us, = lest we die.
(Exodus 20:20) And Moses = ‘said’ to the people, = Do not fear, = for God has come = to ‘test’ you, = and = so that = His fear = ‘may be’ before your faces, = so that = you = may ‘not’ sin.
*** (Deuteronomy 30:19-20) I call Heaven and earth = to record today = ‘against you’. = I have ‘set’ before you = life and death, = blessing and cursing. = Therefore, ‘choose life’, = so that ‘both’ you = and = your seed = may live,
(Deut 30:20) so that you = ‘may love’ = Jehovah your God, = and = that you = ‘may obey’ = His voice, = and = that you ‘may cling’ = to Him. = For He = is your life = and = the length of your days, = so that you may dwell in the land which Jehovah swore = to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give it to them.
Simple “Obedience” is the Key…! When you choose… ‘to disobey’… the Holy Word of God, and get a divorce, you set in action a ‘cascading’ result of decisions and happenings that you will soon have no control over. Following God and His Word; ‘whatever the cost’; will bring His ultimate blessings, some of which you may not see immediately. Again when you trade your marriage and remarry into Adultery… “Mark 10:11-12”… what you call a blessing… is ‘not’ a blessing from God! You have ‘violated’ His Word, and in ‘disobedience’ to Him… call your new life… “A Blessing from God?” What you call it… is ‘not’… what God calls it!
*** (1Samuel 15:22-23) And Samuel said, = Does Jehovah [God]= delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices = as in ‘obeying’ = the voice of Jehovah? = Behold, “to Obey” = is ‘better than’ sacrifice! = “To listen” = is better than the fat of rams!
(1Sam 15:23) For “rebellion” = is as the sin of ‘witchcraft’, = and ‘stubbornness’ = is as “iniquity and idol-worship”. = Because you have = “rejected the Word of Jehovah”, = He has also rejected you from being king!
*** (Mark 8:36-37-38) For = what shall it ‘profit’ a man = if he shall ‘gain’ the whole world = and = lose his own soul?
(Mark 8:37) Or = what shall a man = ‘give’ in exchange = for his soul?
(Mark 8:38) Therefore whoever = shall be ashamed of Me [Jesus] = and = of My ‘Words’ = in this ‘adulterous’ and ‘sinful’ generation, = the Son of Man = ‘shall also’ = be ashamed of him = when He comes = in the glory of His Father = with the holy angels.
*** (2Timothy 3:5-6-7) having a ‘form’ of godliness [religion], = but denying the power of it; = even ‘turn away’ = from these.
(2Tim 3:6) For of these are those = who creep into houses = and = lead captive silly women loaded with sins, = led away with different kinds of lusts,
(2Tim 3:7) ‘ever’ learning = and = ‘never’ able = to come to = the ‘full’ knowledge = of the Truth.
About now… ‘someone’ is saying… “Well my new spouse loves me and my children.” We go to church and have a happy family and love the Lord and His Word. “At what price”… is your new family…? Is or was; your ‘disobedience’ to the Holy Word of God… worth what you now have? Can you say you are “living in complete obedience” = to God and His Word…? Most women and men, who divorce their spouses… ‘who have children’… keep their children, from their ‘real biological parent’. Is that what God wants for your Child or Children…? Did you miss… “1Samuel 15:23”… and ‘the rebellion’… that you are now ‘building’… in your children?
*** (Matthew 15:4) For God = ‘commanded’, = saying, = "Honor your father and mother"; = and, = "He who speaks ‘evil’ = of “father” or “mother”, = let him die by death."
*** (Isaiah 5:20) Woe to those = who call evil good = and good evil; = who put darkness for light = and light for darkness; = who put bitter for sweet = and sweet for bitter!
*** (2Samuel 12:9-to-14) Why have [King David] you = ‘despised’ = the Word of Jehovah [God], = to ‘do evil’ = in His sight? = You have stricken [killed] = Uriah the Hittite [Bathsheba’s husband] = with the sword, = and have ‘taken’ his wife = to be your wife, = and = have killed him = with the sword of the sons of Ammon.
(2Sa 12:10) And therefore, = “the sword” = shall ‘never’ depart = from your house, = because = you have ‘despised’ Me [God] = and = have taken ‘the wife’ of Uriah the Hittite = to be ‘your’ wife.
(2Sam 12:11) So says Jehovah [God], = Behold, = I [God] = will raise up ‘evil against you’ = out of your ‘own’ house, = and = I [God] = will take your wives = before your eyes = and give them = to your neighbor. = And = he shall lie with your wives = in the sight of this sun.
(2Sam 12:12) For you = did it ‘secretly’, = but I will = do this thing = before all Israel = and = before the sun.
(2Sam 12:13) And David said to Nathan, = I have sinned against Jehovah. = And Nathan said to David, = Jehovah also has put away your sin; = you shall ‘not’ die.
(2Sam 12:14) Only, = ‘because by this deed’ = you have given = ‘great occasion’ = to the enemies of Jehovah [God] = to blaspheme [God], = this child born to you shall surely die.
Continued in part… ‘4’…
*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship = toward Your holy temple, = and = praise Your Name = for Your loving-kindness = and = for “Your Truth's” sake; = for You [God] = have magnified = Your Word = “ABOVE – ALL” = Your Name. = [Psalms 119:18 & 1Samuel 3:21 & Deuteronomy 29:29]
"NO”… Real Christian... ‘Fears’, the Word of God... “Unless”… ‘they are’… Out of … “Obedience & Fellowship” …with ‘GOD’… and with “His Word”...!"
(Micah 2:7) House of Jacob, it is said, The Spirit of Jehovah is limited, if these are His doings. Do not My words do good to him who walks uprightly?
