What the Bible Really Teaches About Marriage & Divorce:

     He meant what he said. We are called to peace, not cruel slavery. We are not commanded by God to try to force an unwilling, unbelieving spouse to stay with us. If that spouse wishes to depart, the scripture says,

 "let him depart".

 
     But nowhere in the Bible does God ever say that that person is not still your spouse. On the contrary - as long as he (or she) is alive, you are bound by the law of marriage.
 

(Genesis 2:24, Romans 7:2,3, Luke 16:18,

1 Corinthians 7:39, etc...)

     It is Bible truth that the institution of marriage between a man and his wife is given to us by the God of creation to typify, or illustrate, to us the nature of his redemptive plan, which itself is a marriage; and it is also Bible truth that if Satan can successfully deceive the Israel of God to the end they will not understand or keep the sanctity of marriage between a man and his wife, they will most surely lose sight of the sanctity of the covenant of marriage between them and their God. 
As it is written:

"If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?"

(Psalm 11:3)

and,

 

"He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust also in the least is unjust also in much.

If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?

And if ye have not been faithful in that

which is another man's, who shall give you

 that which is your own?...

Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery."

(Luke 16:10-12, 18)

     Satan used "the counsel of Balaam" (Numbers 25:1, 31:16) to destroy multitudes among Israel in the wilderness around 3,500 years ago, and he is still using it today to destroy multitudes in the churches:

"But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication."

(Revelation 2:14)

     Brethren, millions of happy, born-again people

are in rebellion,

 married to other people's wives and husbands,

and living in open adultery before God and men.

 

And they are NOT going to heaven.

 

(Exodus 20:14, 1 Corinthians 6:9,10, Galatians 5:19-21)

     This has been by no means an extensive exposition of this most fundamental Bible doctrine. But it is given for the purpose of exhortation (if any had previously thought otherwise) and instruction, which is what we have the infallible word of God for.
 As it is written;

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God,

and is profitable for doctrine,

for reproof,

for correction,

for instruction in righteousness:

That the man of God may be perfect,

thoroughly furnished unto all good works."

(2 Timothy 3:16)

 

     And, if this doctrine is already believed and taught among you, I praise God for you, because I am persuaded that you are the remnant who truly love Jesus Christ our Lord, and tremble at his word.

Jesus is coming soon, as a thief in the night.

 

"Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked,

and they see his shame."

(Revelation 16:15)

 

Watch and pray, beloved!

Farewell.
