Remarriage after the Death of one’s Spouse…?
IF: “You” have taken YOUR time… and read through these Scriptures and remarks; THEN: perhaps “You” are willing to change your mind about: “Divorce” & “Adultery Remarriage”…? Please do ‘NOT’ believe only what I say; but ‘ONLY’ what the Holy Word of God says? “You” answer to HIM: and “Not” to me. Your eternal: ‘rewards’ or ‘loss’ of rewards: is based on His Truth: which “You” act upon. Surely “You” want God’s best for your Life: Don’t ‘‘You’’? After your ‘Only’ spouse has Died: “You” are free to Remarry: “But ‘Only’ in the LORD”…! [1Corhinthains 7:39 & Romans 7:1-2-3]
“Don’t Believe Me – 101”…Blog. [1/2]
What does “ONLY in the LORD” mean…? To put it plainly: IF the Lord wills it! How does One know IF it is the Lord’s Will? The Will of GOD = Always Equals = His Holy Word! Nothing More: Nothing Less! Surely He would ‘Not’ want a ‘Spiritually Mature’ person to marry a: ‘Spiritually Immature’ person. Do “You” know about “Amos 3:3”…? What about Hebrews 5:11-to-14…? After ALL of the Scriptures presented already: How could anyone even consider a marriage to “Someone”: whose ‘Divorced’ spouse was still Living…?
*** (Amos 3:3) Can two walk together: unless they are agreed?
*** (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) We have much to say about this, but it is difficult to explain because “You” have become too lazy to understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, though by now “You” should be teachers, “You” still need someone to teach “You” the basic truths of God's Word. “You” have become people who need milk instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk is still a [Spiritual] baby; and is inexperienced in the message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food [Bible Doctrine] is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to distinguish [discern]: good from evil.
*** (Hosea 4:6) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because “You” have rejected knowledge, I [God] will also reject “You” from being priest to Me. Since “You” have forgotten the Law of your, I will also forget your sons, even I [The LORD].
*** (Judges 2:10) And also all that generation were gathered to their fathers. And there arose ‘another’ generation after them who did ‘NOT’ know The LORD, nor ‘even’ the works which He had done for Israel.
*** (Judges 21:25) In those days there was no king in Israel. Every man did the right [only] in his own eyes.
Suppose that “Divorced” persons spouse is “Dead”…? Doesn’t that fulfill, “Romans 7:1-2-3” & “1Corinthains 7:39”…? Yes, I believe so, in “Letter & Spirit!” But lets look at the Scripture and see what it says about, “Virtue?” What IF: She or he instituted the Divorce? How ‘would or could’, “You” trust one such as that? Surely there must be some Scriptures covering this…? IF: “You” have a relationship with Christ Jesus and His Holy Word, THEN: Marriage can be an ‘Adjunct’: ONLY with the “Right Mate”. On the other hand: it can be a distraction from; “Him & His Holy Word!” Question: what in fact is most important to “You’’…? Him & His Holy Word: or a “Mate”…? Please answer to yourself…?
*** (1Corinthains 7:29-to-35) This is what I mean, brothers: The time has been shortened. From now on, those who have wives should live: as though they had ‘None’,
(1Cor 7:30) and those who mourn as though they did not mourn, and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they did not own a thing,
(1Cor 7:31) and those who use the things in the world as though they were not dependent on them. For the world in its present form; is passing away.
(1Cor 7:32) I want “You” to be free from concerns. An unmarried man is ‘Concerned’ about the affairs of the Lord: that is, about ‘how’ he can: Please the Lord.
(1Cor 7:33) But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world, that is, about how he can please his wife,
(1Cor 7:34) and so his attention is: ‘Divided’. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the affairs of the Lord, so that she may be holy in body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world, that is, about how she can please her husband.
(1Cor 7:35) I'm saying this for your benefit: ‘Not’ to put a noose around your necks: but to promote ‘good order’ and ‘Unhindered’ –> “Devotion to the [our] Lord.
The Requirements for a Levite… and OT Priest were specific about Marriage. As a NT Believer: are we not OT Priests, unto our Lord Jesus…? [Kings & Priests: Revelation 5:10] If “You” will take some time to read through the OT Scriptures, “You” will find Scriptures “Applicable & Maturing”: for the NT Believer. Not in a legalistic sense; but in the “Godly Wisdom” that one needs! No Pastor should ever ‘violate’ these Scriptures!
*** (Leviticus 21:6-to-9) They shall be holy to their God and not profane the name of their God. For they offer the fire offerings of The LORD, the bread of their God. Therefore they shall be holy.
(Lev 21:7) They shall “NOT” take a wife who is a “WHORE”, or “DEFILED”. Neither shall they take a woman “DIVORCED” from her husband. For he [the Levite or Priest] is Holy to his God.
(Lev 21:8) And “You” shall sanctify him, for he offers the bread of your God. He shall be ‘Holy’ to ‘‘You’’. For I am holy, The LORD who sanctifies ‘‘You’’.
(Lev 21:9) And the daughter of any priest, if she profanes herself by going whoring, she profanes her father. She shall be burned with fire.
*** (Proverbs 31:10) Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.
(Pro 31:11) The heart of her husband does safely trust in her; so that he shall have no need of spoil. [Plunder]
(Pro 31:12) She will do him ‘Good’: and “Not Evil”: ‘ALL’ the days of her life. [Proverbs 30:20]
Question: If a woman claims… to be a Child of God: and Divorces her Husband, does that Validate: her “Virtue” or “Lack of Virtue”…? She by her Divorce: “Does Him EVIL!” How many Christian women in American Churches: fit this profile…? The “Many” remarried! Of course, the “Violation of her Wedding Vows”: is evidence enough of her “Lack of Virtue!” When she has ‘Wedding Vows’ with her second husband: which one does “GOD: Validate”…? [Mark 10:112-12 & Hebrews 13:4]
Did “You” ever wonder WHAT… goes through the ‘Mind’ of the Pastor: Who knows they are: “Divorced & Remarrying”…? Perhaps it goes like this…? “I wonder IF they will attend here and “Donate their Tithes” to My Church”…? We barely make our debt now! I strongly believe this is one of the reasons why so many Pastors: “Remarry Divorced (Pseudo) Christians!”
*** (Luke 6:43-44) "A good tree “Doesn't” produce rotten fruit: and a rotten tree “Doesn't” produce good fruit.
(Luke 6:44) For every tree is known by its own fruit. People don't gather figs from thorny plants or pick grapes from a thorn bush.
*** (James 3:9-to-12) With it we bless the Lord and Father, and with it we curse those who are made in God's likeness.
(James 3:10) From the same Mouth: come blessing and cursing. It should not be like this, my brothers!
(James 3:11) A spring cannot pour both fresh and brackish water from the same opening, can it? [No!]
(James 3:12) My brothers, a fig tree cannot produce olives, nor a grapevine figs, can it? [No!] Can a salt spring produce fresh water. [No!]
*** (2Peter 2:19-to-22) Promising them freedom, they themselves are “Slaves to Depravity”, for a person is a slave: to whatever conquers him.
(2Pet 2:20) For if, after escaping the world's corruptions through a full knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled and conquered by them: then their last condition is worse than their former one.
(2Pet 2:21) It would have been better for them ‘Not’ to have known the way of righteousness than to know it: and ‘turn’ their backs on the Holy Commandment that was committed to them.
(2Pet 2:22) The proverb is true that describes what has happened to them: "A dog returns to its vomit," and "A pig that is washed goes back to wallow in the mud."
Just suppose “You” find a new ‘potential’ mate… who has divorced their Mate: and “Remarried into Adultery?” Both of their mates are now: ‘Dead!’ No matter how much “Beauty” or “Money” or “Charisma” he or she has: “Would “You” marry such a Person?”
Please answer: Yes or No…?
They “Divorced” their first mate… and married another mate [Mark 10:11-12]. Why would: or could “You” TRUST: such a Mate? She or He has already Violated: numerous Bible Verses..! What made them Change that they are NOW, going to obey God’s Holy Word…? Do NOT: be so naïve…! “You” think “You” are in Love…? Or is it “Lust” & the “Pride of Life”…? God Forbid…!
Surely, the Will of God = Always Equals = His Holy Word!
Do Not: marry that Person!
*** (Isaiah 26:10) Let favor be shown to the wicked; ‘Yet’ he will ‘NOT’ learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness he will deal ‘unjustly’, and ‘Will Not’ behold the majesty of Jehovah the LORD.
*** (Jeremiah 13:23) Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard its spots? Then you also may do good; who are ‘Accustomed’ to: Doing Evil!
IF: “You” are a student of the Word… have “You” read though Proverbs! IF: that is not enough to show how women easily corrupt men: read Romans chapter ONE! Who were the first “Homosexuals?” “Men or Women”…? It was Women! Satan takes the woman much easier than the man. Have “You” read Revelation: and that False Woman Preacher, “Jezebel” [Revelation 2:18-to-23]…? Sorry NO, I am ‘Not’ down on women, they can serve the Lord & their husbands & families: with a ‘Zeal’ that a man: does ‘Not’ have. They have a God Given ‘Nurturing’ for their Children. But their potential for ‘Evil’ is much greater than that of a Man. Have “You” notice how “Hollywood Women Entertainers ‘KISS’ other Women on the Lips so easily in Public…? Enough: ‘Said’…?
*** (Luke 17:32) Remember Lot's wife.
*** (Romans 1:22-to-28) Professing to be wise, they became fools
(Rom 1:23) and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things.
(Rom 1:24) Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves.
(Rom 1:25) For they changed the truth of God into a lie, and they worshiped and served the created thing more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
(Rom 1:26) For this cause, God gave them up to dishonorable affections. For even their women changed the natural use into that which is against nature.
(Rom 1:27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust toward one another; males with males working out shamefulness, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was fitting for their error.
(Rom 1:28) And even as they did not think fit to have God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind; to do the things not right,

*** (Ephesians 1:4) according as He [God] chose us in Him [Christ]; before the foundation of the world; that we should be ‘Holy’ and without blame before Him in love, [John 6:44]
About NOW… Someone is thinking, “But What about Our Redemption & 1Corinthains 6:9-10-11”…” Sure we were Sinners but NOW we are redeemed! What does it matter what kind of Life: we had before Christ?
To answer that question: I must ASK: “Are You INSTANTLY Mature and will MAKE Goodly Decisions”…? “Absolutely NOT!” That change from our “Sinful Lifestyle” to one of “Faithfulness & Spiritual Maturity” to Christ Jesus… may take some years! Why then would ‘ONE’ take a Mate: who may need a ‘Life Time’: to “Mature in Christ”…? Perhaps look to the Holy Word of God: for an answer.
*** (Ezekiel 16:44) Behold, all who use proverbs shall use this proverb against you, saying, As the mother, so is her daughter. [Leviticus 21:7]
Question: How does your Potential MATE: handle money…? Does He or She have any “Secret Fetishes” or “Addictions”? Often times, I counsel people about spending the: $50-to-$75: and get a ‘Credit Check’: on your Potential Marriage Mate! And a “Background Check”, Also! IF: “You” are ready to marry and they will NOT share their Social Security number: THEN: they have “SOMETHING to HIDE!” That is “DEFINITELY” when “You” need a “Background & Credit Check!” They are “HIDING” –> “SOMETHING”…?
You may be saying… “I am in LOVE”… how am I supposed to “Do That”…? Why would “You”… ‘NOT: Do That’…? Has your “Love & Lust” so blinded your ‘Cognitive Thought Process’: that “You” are relying ‘ONLY’ on your human feelings…? What happens when those “FEELINGS”… are no longer with “You”…? Second Marriages often get into trouble “BECAUSE”… people trust their ‘Feelings & Emotions’: and “NOT the Facts”…! And the “Complications of those Decisions”: that go against the Holy Word of God! Do “You” really believe that GOD: would NOT Recompense: “Remarriage Adultery”…?
*** (Hebrews 13:4) Let marriage be kept honorable in every way, and the marriage bed undefiled. For God will judge those who commit sexual sins; especially those who commit Adultery.
