“Remarriage – 606”…Blog. [End-of-6]

“Remarriage – 606”…Blog. [End-of-6]

After reading the preceding blogs… you must have come to the conclusion; that the Holy Word of God, has to be to the True Believers… “The Only point of Reference!” This is a… “Moment by Moment”… decision for the believer. Remember… “Every song – is a Sermon!” Secular or Religious, each song conveys something to your Mind, heart and Soul. Even Handles Messiah, which is Scripture alone, which I listen to regularly. Test these two songs and see what I mean?  

Continuing with these thoughts… all of us know that computer saying; “GI – GO!” Garbage In – Garbage Out. Computers only handle the “data & programming” that is fed into them. It cannot magically ‘genre’ something out of nothing. “AI” – artificial intelligence is only a function of programming. So too is your mind, what you put in… is what you get out. If your ‘thinking’ approves ‘divorce & remarriage’… no matter what God says in… “Mark 10:11-12”… that is what you – will act on. God does not violate your free will… but… you can violate the Holy Word of God!

*** (2Corinthians 10:3-to-6) Of course, = we are living in the flesh, = but we do not fight = in a fleshly way. [Ephesians 6:12]
(2Cor 10:4) For = the weapons of our warfare = are ‘not’ those = of the flesh. = Instead, = they have the power of God = to ‘demolish’ fortresses [strongholds]. = We tear down arguments [against the Truth of the Word of God]
(2Cor 10:5) and = every proud ‘obstacle’ = that is raised “against” = the knowledge of God, = taking ‘every’ thought = ‘captive’ = in order = to ‘obey’ Christ. [Luke 6:46]
(2Cor 10:6) We are ready = ‘to punish’ every act of disobedience = when your ‘obedience’ = is complete. [Proverbs 28:13 & 1John 1:5-to-10]

*** (1Kings 18:21) And Elijah = came to ‘all’ the people = and said, = “How long” = are you ‘limping’ over = ‘two opinions’? = “If” = Jehovah is God, = follow Him. = But ‘if’ = Baal is God, = then follow him. = And = the people ‘did not’ answer him = a word.

… “Not ‘to’ – Decide… Is… ‘to’ – Decide…!” = Obey God and His Word = Or Not…?

It is my belief… that we must ‘Unlearn’ some things; that we have ‘wrongly’ learned. Isn’t that what… “Growing in God’s Grace”… means? How about abiding in the vine…? Bearing fruit and some bringing forth, 30 fold, 60 fold and 100 fold? Of course these are all Scriptural word pictures for “Spiritual Maturation”. Do the Scriptures ever say… but you are yet carnal and not spiritual? All these admonitions are to spur one onto obedience to Christ and to His Word.

*** (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 baby = and = is ‘inexperienced’ = in the “message of righteousness”.
(Heb 5:14) But = solid food = is for ‘mature’ people, = whose minds are = ‘trained’ by practice = to ‘distinguish’ = “good” from ‘evil’.

Before someone… shuts me down and says that I am picking on Christians: Please tell me, “Do you hold to the ‘Complete Authority’ of the Holy Word of God… for those that are Truly His”…? You say you… ‘Love’ Jesus; but do you “Love His Word”… ‘Also?’ That ‘cannot’ be separated; as they are one and the same! He is the Living Word. Anyone that says different is simply calling God a Liar! We know that God cannot Lie… and that His Word is Truth… “Numbers 23:19 & John 17:17”

*** (2Timothy 2:25-26) in meekness = ‘instructing’ those = who oppose, = if perhaps = God = will ‘give’ them = “Repentance” = to the acknowledging = of the Truth,
(2Tim 2:26) and = that they ‘awake’ = out of the snare = of the Devil [Satan], = having been = ‘taken captive’ = by him, = so as ‘to do’ = the will of that one.

*** (Matthew 13:19) When ‘anyone’ = hears the Word of the kingdom = and = ‘does not’ understand it, = then = the wicked one [Satan] = comes and catches ‘away’ = that which was sown = ‘in his heart’. = This is the seed [Word of God] = sown by the wayside.

Recently, because of these blogs… someone sent me a message and told me to stop trying to get them… “To Believe what I believe!” Did I ever say ‘anything’… about ‘You’…believing in what I believe in any of the over ‘100’ blogs posted on my blog site…? “Absolutely – Not!” I do only one thing… point you back to what the Word of God says. Another person told me… ‘That is only your interpretation!’ I simply asked them, “If I am wrong… please take the Scriptures… and show me where I am wrong; and I will gladly ‘repent openly’ before all! Some of my ‘Internet’ friends; no longer consider me; their friend and have stopped chatting.

*** (Galatians 6:1) Brothers, = ‘if’ = a man is = “overtaken in a fault”, = you the ‘spiritual ones’ = restore such a one = in the spirit of meekness, = considering yourself, = lest you ‘also’ = be tempted.

*** (Luke 17:3) Take heed to yourselves. = If your brother ‘trespasses’ against you, = rebuke him. = And if he repents, = forgive him.

Now it has come time… to address the issue of an “Adulterous Remarriage”… as defined by Jesus Christ in… “Mark 10:11-12 = Luke 16:18” Someone wrote to me and asked… “Should I… ‘Divorce’ my second husband… because I violated Mark 10:11-12?” Is there an example of God… telling His people… to divorce their ‘wrong’ mate; in the Scriptures? That is a tough question but I can only tell you what the Scriptures say. I referred them to my original post to read it again, in dealing with sin in the lives of a True Believer.

*** (Exodus 34:14-15-16) For you shall ‘worship’ = ‘no other god’. = For Jehovah, = Whose name is Jealous, = is a jealous God;
(Exodus 34:15) lest you = make a covenant = with the inhabitants of the land, = and = they go ‘whoring’ = after their gods, = and = do sacrifice to their gods, = and = call you, = and = you eat of his sacrifice;
(Exodus 34:16) and = lest you ‘take’ = from their daughters = ‘for’ your sons, = and their daughters = go ‘whoring’ after their gods = and = make your sons go whoring = after their gods.

*** (Ezra 10:1-to-12) And when Ezra had ‘prayed’, = and = when he had ‘confessed’, = weeping and casting himself = down before the house of God, = there gathered to him = out of Israel = a very great congregation = of men and women and children, = for the people = “wept with a great weeping”. [Repentance & Revival]
(Ezra 10:2) And Shechaniah the son of Jehiel, of the sons of Elam, = answered and said to Ezra, = We ‘have sinned’ = against our God = and = have taken strange women = from the people of the land. = Yet now = there is hope = in Israel = concerning this thing.
(Ezra 10:3) And now = let us make a covenant = with our God = to ‘divorce’ = all the women, = and = such as have been born of them, = ‘according to’ = the counsel of the Lord, = and = of those who tremble = at the commandment of our God. = And let it be done = according to the Law.
(Ezra 10:4) Arise, for this matter belongs to you. We also will be with you. Be of good courage and act.
(Ezra 10:5) Then Ezra arose and made the chief priests, the Levites, and all Israel to swear that they should do according to this word. And they swore.
(Ezra 10:6) Then Ezra rose up from before the house of God and went into the room of Johanan the son of Eliashib. And he went there, and he ate no bread nor drank water. For he mourned because of the sin of those who had been exiled.
(Ezra 10:7) And they made a proclamation throughout Judah and Jerusalem to all the sons of the captivity, to gather themselves to Jerusalem,
(Ezra 10:8) and that whoever would not come within three days, according to the advice of the rulers and the elders, all he owned would be lost, and he himself separated from the congregation of the exiles.
(Ezra 10:9) Then all the men of Judah and Benjamin gathered themselves to Jerusalem within three days. It was the ninth month, on the twentieth of the month. And all the people sat in the street of the house of God, trembling because of this matter, and for the great rain.
(Ezra 10:10) And Ezra the priest stood up and said to them, You have sinned, and have taken strange women to increase the sin of Israel.
(Ezra 10:11) And now confess to Jehovah, the God of your fathers, and do His pleasure. And separate yourselves = from the people of the land, = and = from the strange women.
(Ezra 10:12) Then all the congregation answered and said with a loud voice, = As you have said, = so we must do.

The Answer… is in your… “Obedience” = to the Word of God.

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?”

While sharing these Verses and Principles… the person told me; “Yes, but that was Israel, God’s chosen people!” Well, are you are now… “A Child of God and also His Chosen”…? Obedience in the OT is the Same Obedience in the NT = Obedience to the Holy Word of God! Will you continue in the Sin of Adultery… caused by your Adulterous Marriage = “Mark 10:11-12”. The Thief, the Liar, the Murderer and the Covetous persons… are all to Leave Their Sin = being in Christ! Will you tell me, that the Adulterer does not have to…? That is nothing but… Turning God’s Grace… in to Lasciviousness… Plain & Simple = License to do Sin!

*** (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?”

*** (Matthew 3:8) Bring forth therefore = fruits = meet for ‘Repentance’:

*** (James 1:22) Keep on being = ‘doers’ of the Word, = and = not ‘merely’ hearers = who = ‘deceive’ themselves.

*** (Luke 6:46) And why do ‘you’ = call Me [Jesus] = Lord [Master], = Lord [Boss], = and = ‘do not’ = “Do” = what I [Jesus] = say?

*** (Luke 16:18) Any man = who divorces his wife = and = marries another woman = commits ‘adultery’, = and = the man = who ‘marries’ a woman = divorced from her husband = commits ‘adultery’."

Will YOU… Obey GOD and His Word… Or NOT…?
Thank you for Your EAR! [Job 12:11] Roger //Email//
