“Remarriage – 101”…Blog.

“Remarriage – 101”…Blog.

Hello… “Name Withheld!”

Thank you for our… continued discussion about “Divorce & Remarriage”. It is so refreshing to be able to discuss the Truth from the Holy Word of God, even though we have ‘differing opinions’ on the same subject. Many ‘do not’ take the time to… walk with God, through His Word. Instead they rely on others, to keep them fed. Usually, the Spiritual Food they hold to… is biased on ‘Man’s Opinion’… instead of: “God’s Truth”... found in His Word, the Bible!

*** (Job 9:20) If I = justify myself, = my own mouth shall = condemn me; = though I am perfect, = He [God] = shall declare me perverse.

*** (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.

Sorry it has taken… a couple of days, to respond to you, but I had thought I had better make things ‘quite clear’, from the Word of God, about this topic. I have been studying this subject for some years and find two differing camps. Additionally find that; ‘Error is often mixed with Truth’… so that it often appears as Truth. Why else would Satan come; as an ‘Angel of Light’, and with his followers, who are often ‘religious’… and then sew Tares within the field of Wheat?

Today the Pandemic of… ‘Divorce & Remarriage’… is much like that of “Backslidden Israel”. They too had departed in ‘heart’ from God and His… “Law, Precepts, Ordinances, Statutes and Word of the Lord”… and had substituted; their ‘own’ thinking. You may find Pastors; on both sides of this issue and those that ‘justify’ their actions… ‘Also’ taking sides against the Word of God. He will ultimately use His Word… in the Last Judgment of all mankind.

*** (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!

“More” of those… that ‘call’ the Blessed Name of Jesus… ‘Divorce & Remarry’… than those that… “Do Not”… “Know Jesus = as Unbelievers!” What is wrong with their… “Concept of Reconciliation and Forgiveness”…? Did they completely miss… “2Corinthians 5:18-to-21”… and…. “1John 1:5-to-10?” Perhaps they were ‘never’ really… Born Again… as John spoke about in… “1John 2:19” Christ did speak about those… ‘Many’… in Matthew 7:21-22-23 that thought they were His… but He, Christ, denied them!

Today ‘many’ preachers… “DO NOT”… share the ‘Whole Counsel of God’; but instead… ‘Pick & Choose’… selectively; as ‘do not’ want to drive away; their parishioners. This insures some ‘income’ to continue what they often wrongly call… ‘The Lord’s Work.’ It is not so… ‘If it does not’… hold true; to the Holy Scriptures. Just like, the blind leading the blind; as Christ spoke about in… “Matthew 15:14!”

*** (Matthew 4:4) But He [Jesus] = answered and said, = It is written, = "Man shall ‘not’ = live by bread alone, = but by… “Every Word” = that proceeds out of = the mouth of God."

Those, that are ‘Real Christians’… continually study His Word to ‘Learn & Obey’… more and more; of His Truth. Those that are not… ‘Do Not Accept’… His Word; as the “Only Authority”… for those; that are Truly Born Again. Those that ‘do not’… often times get angry… at someone who ‘espouses’… the Final Authority of the Scriptures, the Holy Word of God.

*** (1Corinthians 2:14) But the natural man = does ‘not’ receive the things = of the Spirit of God, = for they are ‘foolishness’ to him; = neither can he ‘know them’, = because they are spiritually discerned.

We ‘all’ have our own opinion”… on what the Bible teaches about… “Sin, Righteousness and Judgment”… but “Only the Word of God”… is the “Final Authority”. Many today say they believe in Jesus, but in “Which Jesus?” Each denomination has its own interpretation of… “Who… Jesus Is!” But the Bible tells really… ‘Who – Jesus Is’… but only to ‘those’; willing to listen to God’s Word. The Muslims even have a Jesus; but he too is ‘not’ the same as the Jesus of the Word of God!  

Please allow me to explain… what I believe the Scriptures teach; and then ‘test’ what I say about applying this; to the issue of “Divorce & Remarriage”. Base this on what Christ Jesus said about… “Remarriage being Adultery”… if the other spouse is still living. One can take the time to… extract the Truth of the Word of God… by taking ‘all’ the Bible verses on this subject and seeing the ‘Whole Picture’. No one ‘ever’ speaks about their… “Wedding Vows”… they made to Jesus either, even before witnesses. No one that attended their wedding; holds them to their ‘Vows’… not even the pastors!

*** (Mark 10:11-12) So He [Jesus] said to them, = "Whoever divorces his wife = and marries another woman = commits adultery against her.
(Mark 10:12) And = if a woman = divorces her husband = and marries another man, = she commits adultery."

Some, whom are Born Again… by the Holy Spirit of God… will go into the Bible and see what ‘areas’ of their lives… do not live up to… the Word of God; and then ‘correct’ their actions… in obedience to His Word. Some will ‘not’ and then are either; chastened [spanked] by the Father God or live in a land of ‘spiritual dryness’… no matter how they try and correct their situation… without the fruit of ‘Repentance!’

*** (Psalms 106:15) And = He [God] = gave them = what they asked, = but = sent ‘leanness’ = into their soul.

*** (1Timothy 5:24) Some men's sins = are ‘open’ beforehand, = going before = to judgment. = And some = they ‘also’ = follow after.

May I now… share with you, some thoughts from the Word of God, about “Confession, Repentance and Forgiveness”…? Those that know the Word… often apply… “1John 1:5-to-10”… when they are Convicted by the Holy Spirit… about Sin in their lives. Those that respond to Him… have a tender heart: those that ‘do not’; have a… “Hardened Heart like Pharaoh!” Christ Jesus even said that ‘divorce’… is a result of a hardened heart… “Mark 10:5”.


… I am a Christian and work in an accounting firm. I have control of the … ‘Monies & Securities’… for that ‘Firm’. I get tempted and “Steal”… some ‘Barer Bonds [Ten Thousand ‘US’ Dollars– 10K].’

… Because of the nature of such securities, I get away with it. Sometime later, I am ‘convicted by God’… about the Theft… and… “Confess it to Jesus!” …I claim… “1John 1:9” – If we confess our sin, He is faithful to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

… Am I “Then”… required to… “Give back the Monies or Securities”…? Please answer this question … “Yes” = or = “No”…?

*** (Ephesians 4:28) Let him who = ‘stole’ = steal ‘no more’, = but rather = let him labor, = working with his hands = the thing which is good, = so that he may have something = to give to him = who needs.

*** (Proverbs 28:13) He who = ‘covers’ his sins = shall not be blessed; = but whoever = ‘confesses’ = and = ‘leaves them’ = shall have mercy.

*** (Luke 19:8) And = Zacchaeus stood and said = to the Lord [Jesus], = Behold, Lord, = I give half of my goods = to the poor. = And = in ‘anything’ = I accused anyone ‘falsely’, = I restore it = fourfold.

This Dynamic of “Repentance in Forgiveness”… is ‘not taught’… in Churches today. If I have stolen those ‘Financial Securities’… I am then… by the right of the forgiveness from God… to make “Restitution”, for those actions. Throughout the Scriptures… one can find this Truth. You can apply… “Any Sin”… to this dynamic and plug it into… “Ephesians 4:28 & Proverbs 28:13 & Romans 6:1-2”. Most will not recognize these truths, but justify their past decisions.

True Forgiveness… “Leaves the SIN!” The word, “Repentance”… in the Bible… means having a… “Change of Mind = that is demonstrated = in a Change of Actions!” If I am forgiven by God… do I keep on ‘Sinning’… so that God’s Grace will… “Continue to Grace – in that SIN”…? “Yes or No”…? The action that caused that Sin… “Must”… be stopped… or it is not… “Real Forgiveness and Repentance”…!


From “Stealing” – to – “Stealing NO More!

From “Adultery” – to – “Adultery No More!”

From “Lying” – to – “Lying NO More!”

From “Murder” – to – “Murder NO More!”

*** (Romans 6:1-2) What shall we say = then? = Shall we = ‘continue’ = in sin, = that [God’s] grace = may abound?
(Rom 6:2) “God forbid”. = How shall we, = that are dead to sin, = “LIVE ANY LONGER = THEREIN?”

Many times… I hear pastors and others… ‘Excuse away Sin’… into “License = Jude 1:3-4”… and say… “Go and Sin No More!” Like so many others… they take ‘out of context’… those verses spoken by Christ Jesus in… “John 8:3-to-11”. What they… “Fail to Say”… about is what Jesus said; found in a previous chapter of… “John 5:14”. That… “Pick & Choose Mentality”… has become so acceptable in the Churches; that when someone says anything ‘different’; they are… “Branded a ‘Legalist’ and/or a Pharisee!”

*** (John 5:14) Afterward = Jesus found him = in the temple = and said to him, = Behold, = you are made ‘whole’. = “Sin No More” = lest a worse thing = come to you.

“Go and Sin No More”… OR… “Go and Sin no more… lest a “Worse Thing”… come upon you!” That is what ‘Repentance’ is all about, in and by the… “Fear of God!” True Forgiveness ‘always’ has works of repentance… accompanying itself. Without repentance works; it is Not… “Biblical Forgiveness!” … “Go and Sin = No ‘MORE’ = Any Longer!” Do you ever hear that… in your Church…? Divine Accountability can be seen in… Ecclesiastes 12:13-14…!


… “Forgiveness = ‘Without’ = Repentance Actions”… is like…

… “Smoke without Fire”…

… “Clouds without Rain”…

… “Life without God’s Word!”…

… “Spiritually Dry Churches… replacing God’s Holy Word… with ‘Entertainment’… and calling it… Worship!” … “NOT!”

… Need I go on…?

*** (Isaiah 28:13) But = the Word of Jehovah = was to them = “precept on precept”, = “precept on precept”; = “line on line”, = “line on line”; = “here a little”, = “there a little”; = that ‘they’ = might go, = and = ‘fall backward’ [backslide], = and = be broken = and = snared = and = taken.

*** (Proverbs 5:22) His own iniquities = shall take the wicked himself, = and = he shall be ‘held’ = with the cords = of ‘his’ sin.

All you have to do… is speak to ‘Jesus’, about what He has… ‘Already said’… in His Word. I do not write this; to accuse or excuse any actions; of those that call the Blessed Name of Christ Jesus. His Fire; will try ‘All’ our works… and we can now choose to ‘Repent’… and then plant good works, to replace our ‘former’ harvest of bad ones! That is the ‘Cost’ of… “True Discipleship in Christ!” What about it… are you ‘really’ His Child… or… “Just Religious?”

*** (1Timothy 5:25) Likewise also = the good works of some = are manifest beforehand, = and = those who are ‘otherwise’ = cannot be hidden.

*** (Matthew 3:8) Bring forth therefore = ‘fruits’ = worthy of repentance;

*** (2Timothy 2:3-4-5) Therefore endure hardness, = as a ‘good soldier’ = of Jesus Christ.
(2Tim 2:4) No one = who ‘wars’ = tangles with the affairs of this life, = that he may = please Him = Who chose him = to be a ‘soldier’.
(2Tim 2:5) And = also if anyone competes, = he = is ‘not’ crowned = unless he competes = ‘lawfully’.

*** (Luke 24:48) And = you are = ‘witnesses’ = of these things.

*** (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]
