What God says about marriage:
It is written, Mat 19:5 And said, For this cause
shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave
to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Mat
19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man
It is written, Mar 10:7 'And for this reason a man
will leave his father and mother and unite with his
wife, Mar 10:8 and the two will become one.' So they
are no longer two, but one. Mar 10:9 No human being
must separate, then, what God has joined together."
It is written, 1Co 7:2 But because there is so much
immorality, every man should have his own wife, and
every woman should have her own husband. 1Co 7:3 A
man should fulfill his duty as a husband, and a woman
should fulfill her duty as a wife, and each should
satisfy the other's needs. 1Co 7:4 A wife is not the
master of her own body, but her husband is; in the
same way a husband is not the master of his own body,
but his wife is.
1Co 7:5 Do not deny yourselves to each other, unless
you first agree to do so for a while in order to spend
your time in prayer; but then resume normal marital
relations. In this way you will be kept from giving
in to Satan's temptation because of your lack of self-control.
It is written, Ecc 9:9 Live joyfully with the wife
whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity,
which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days
of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life,
and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.
It is written, Eph 5:21 Submitting yourselves one
to another in the fear of God. Eph 5:22 Wives, submit
yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
Eph 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife,
even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is
the saviour of the body. Eph 5:24 Therefore as the
church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be
to their own husbands in every thing. Eph 5:25 Husbands,
love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church,
and gave himself for it; Eph 5:28 So ought men to
love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth
his wife loveth himself. Eph 5:29 For no man ever
yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth
it, even as the Lord the church:
Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh,
and of his bones.
Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father
and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and
they two shall be one flesh. Eph 5:33 Nevertheless
let every one of you in particular so love his wife
even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence
He tells us not to unequally yoke however. About
the unbeliever and a Christian, this is Gods word:
It is written, 2Co 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked
together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath
righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion
hath light with darkness? 2Co 6:15 And what concord
hath Christ with Belial (Satan)? or what part hath
he that believeth with an infidel (unfaithful person)?
What God says about divorce:
It is written, Mal 2:14 You ask why he no longer
accepts them (your prayers). It is because he knows
you have broken your promise to the wife you married
when you were young. She was your partner, and you
have broken your promise to her, although you promised
before God that you would be faithful to her. Mal
2:16 "I hate divorce," says the LORD God
of Israel. "I hate it when one of you does such
a cruel thing to his wife. Make sure that you do not
break your promise to be faithful to your wife."
It is written, Mat 5:31 It was said also, Whosoever
shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing
It is written, Mat 5:32 but I say unto you, that every
one that putteth away his wife, saving for the cause
of fornication, maketh her an adulteress: and whosoever
shall marry her when she is put away committeth adultery.
It is written, Mat 19:3 And there came unto him Pharisees,
trying him, and saying, Is it lawful for a man to
put away his wife for every cause? Mat 19:4 And he
answered and said, Have ye not read, that he who made
them from the beginning made them male and female,
Mat 19:5 and said, For this cause shall a man leave
his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife;
and the two shall become one flesh? Mat 19:6 So that
they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore
God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Mat 19:7 They say unto him, Why then did Moses command
to give a bill of divorcement, and to put her away?
Mat 19:8 He saith unto them, Moses gave you permission
to divorce your wives because you are so hard to teach.
But it was not like that at the time of creation.
Mat 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away
his wife, except for fornication, and shall marry
another, committeth adultery: and he that marrieth
her when she is put away committeth adultery.
The laws of Moses states that a man can put away
his wife if he finds her to not be a virgin on the
wedding night, she has therefore fornicated with another
while single, (see Gods intended marriage covenant)
and because they have hardened their hearts to her
because of this. Moses law for adultery was death
period. When the bible was translated into different
versions, the New International version I believe
is the one, came out with the alteration to some of
the scriptures concerning divorce, substituting the
word adultery for fornication, much to mans hopefulness
that they could use it as an excuse, but the original
version as well as the KJ, reads correctly, it is
fornication and Jesus said that to divorce your spouse
except for fornication, and marry another is adultery.
Get it straight Christians!
Dictionary definition of the two different things:
Fornication: consensual sexual intercourse between
two persons not married to each other
Adultery: voluntary sexual intercourse between a married
man and someone other than his wife or between a married
woman and someone other than her husband
Note Jesus is referring to Moses laws, and adultery
held a sentence of death in Moses laws.
Moses law concerning adultery: It is written, Lev
20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another
man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with
his neighbor's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress
shall surely be put to death. (You cannot divorce
a dead person, that marriage ends with the spouses
death by stoning.)
Why did Moses allow divorce for the man who found
out his new bride was not a virgin? God compares the
marriage covenant of a husband and wife to our salvation
covenant with Jesus, this is why there is much reference
in the bible between the two. He calls Jesus the Husband
and we the children of God the bride of Christ. He
talks about the wedding feast. When God created man
and woman, and marriage, God intended it to be a blood
covenant. Jesus shed His blood for us, sealing our
salvation when we accept Him. It is a blood covenant
between us and our Lord. It was the blood that sealed
our salvation. God intended for man and woman to be
pure until marriage. The vows are spoken, and these
spoken vows are serious and binding with God, as we
will speak of in a moment, but then on the wedding
night the vows were sealed with the consummation of
the marriage, the couple coming together. There was
blood shed by the woman with this consummation. If
the woman is not a virgin, the blood was not shed.
Therefore Moses allowed the man to put her away, immediately
mind you, and only because of the man hardening his
heart because of it. This because God takes the vow
even more seriously then the blood, as again we will
note on vows here shortly.
It is written, Mar 10:2 Some Pharisees came to him
and tried to trap him. "Tell us," they asked,
"does our Law allow a man to divorce his wife?"
Mar 10:3 Jesus answered with a question, "What
law did Moses give you?" Mar 10:4 Their answer
was, "Moses gave permission for a man to write
a divorce notice and send his wife away." Mar
10:5 Jesus said to them, "Moses wrote this law
for you because you are so hard to teach. Mar 10:6
But in the beginning, at the time of creation, 'God
made them male and female,' as the scripture says.
Mar 10:7 'And for this reason a man will leave his
father and mother and unite with his wife, Mar 10:8
and the two will become one.' So they are no longer
two, but one. Mar 10:9 No human being must separate,
then, what God has joined together."
It is written, Luk 16:18 "Any man who divorces
his wife and marries another woman commits adultery;
and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
It is written, Rom 7:2 A married woman, for example,
is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives;
but if he dies, then she is free from the law that
bound her to him. Rom 7:3 So then, if she lives with
another man while her husband is alive, she will be
called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she
is legally a free woman and does not commit adultery
if she marries another man.
The exception law - the only reason God allows divorce,
but does not approve even then.
It is written, 1Co 7:10 For married people I have
a command which is not my own but the Lord's: a wife
must not leave her husband; 1Co 7:11 but if she does,
she must remain single or else be reconciled to her
husband; and a husband must not divorce his wife.
1Co 7:12 To the others I say if a Christian man has
a wife who is an unbeliever and she agrees to go on
living with him, he must not divorce her. 1Co 7:13
And if a Christian woman is married to a man who is
an unbeliever and he agrees to go on living with her,
she must not divorce him. 1Co 7:14 For the unbelieving
husband is made acceptable to God by being united
to his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made acceptable
to God by being united to her Christian husband. If
this were not so, their children would be like pagan
children; but as it is, they are acceptable to God.
1Co 7:15 However, if the one who is not a believer
wishes to leave the Christian partner, let it be so.
In such cases the Christian partner, whether husband
or wife, is free to act. God has called you to live
in peace. 1Co 7:16 How can you be sure, Christian
wife, that you will not save your husband? Or how
can you be sure, Christian husband, that you will
not save your wife?
Summery of the word: God says no man can separate
a marriage. Marriage is a covenant vow, blood vow
compared to the covenant between Christ & the
saved in Christ. It is a vow made to God between the
husband and wife, between God and the two persons,
a three fold cord. Ecc 4:12 And if one prevail against
him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord
is not quickly broken. God says: It is written, Deu
23:21 "When you make a vow to the LORD your God,
do not put off doing what you promised; the LORD will
hold you to your vow, and it is a sin not to keep
it. It is written, Heb 6:16 When we make a vow, we
use the name of someone greater than ourselves, and
the vow settles all arguments. It is written, Num
30:2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an
oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break
his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth
out of his mouth. It is written, Ecc 5:2 Be not rash
with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to
utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven,
and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.
It is written, Ecc 5:4 When thou vowest a vow unto
God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure
in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Ecc 5:5
Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that
thou shouldest vow and not pay. Ecc 5:6 Suffer not
thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou
before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore
should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the
work of thine hands? God says if you divorce your
spouse and marry another, it is adultery, and if you
marry another mans wife consider it double adultery
because that is two marriages still bound before God
in a vow. This is because the vow is a three fold
cord, one breaking it leaves 2/3 intact. If God acknowledged
the marriage to the adulteress as a marriage, He would
not call it adultery
.definition: having sex
with someone besides your spouse. Therefore then,
who is still the spouse that is being sinned against?
The spouse you divorced, because that vow is still
valid in Gods eyes and not broken by a man (judge)
with a piece of paper, for He says that no man shall
tear asunder what He has joined together. How does
a covenant marriage vow become completely severed
in Gods eyes? It is three fold, if both spouses of
the covenant walk away and remarry, then 2/3 of the
covenant are broken and then it is completely broken,
just leaving God the only one standing in the covenant,
but it was against His laws so this is why both re-marriages
will suffer and be worse then the one you left, because
it was sinning against God and we reap what we sow.
It is written, Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not
mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he
also reap. The only reason God gives for us to divorce
is if unequally yoked with a unbeliever, but then
He hates divorce so much that He notes that we are
not to leave them, we are only to let them go if they
choose to go, for they are sanctified with God through
the believing spouse.
So God does acknowledge and honor second or more
marriages under the specifications of the word. 1.
In the case of death of the spouse of course. 2.If
you were married to an unbeliever and they left you
and divorced, then this is the only one that you are
not bound under the law, and will not reap from it.
If you left them and divorced them, you will reap.
3. We do things also before we come to Christ, we
were sinners, and those who divorced prior to salvation,
you were cleansed of all prior sin when you came to
Jesus, it was cast out to sea. But once you accept
Him and belong to Him, you will reap for going against
His word. Some Christians did not know the word on
marriage and divorce, or were led astray by a minister
who is not teaching the true word, then you need to
ask forgiveness and repent
make it right, do
His word and go back to the Christian spouse you left
if they remain unmarried still, because God still
holds that covenant valid, even if you have remarried;
because your current marriage is then adultery period
says so. Or you must remain alone as His word says.
It is written, Act 17:30 And the times of this ignorance
God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where
to repent: Act 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day,
in the which he will judge the world in righteousness
by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath
given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised
him from the dead.
Repent: to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the
amendment of one's life.
If you divorced and remarried another, and your previous
Christian spouse has themselves also remarried, then
the three fold cord is severed, but you will both
reap for it, count on it and this may be why the discord
in your current marriage and why it is failing as
well. Where God recognizes second or more marriages
is: If your previous spouse was not a believer and
they left you, and when the vow with your previous
spouse has suffered a complete severance by both of
you having remarried. Again, He is not happy about
it, but then you are to ask forgiveness and go and
sin no more! To keep repeating sin is iniquity. Do
not divorce again, make this one work!
It is written, 2Ti 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation
of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth
them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth
the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
It is written, Luk 13:27 But he shall say, I tell
you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me,
all ye workers of iniquity.
It is written, Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto
them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work
It is written, Mat 13:41 The Son of man shall send
forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his
kingdom all things that offend, and them which do
It is written, Mat 24:12 And because iniquity shall
abound, the love of many shall wax cold. (A believer
who commits iniquity will lose God, their love for
Him shall wax cold, and they shall not go to Heaven).
It is written, Rom 6:19 I speak after the manner of
men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as
ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness
and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your
members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
To scripturally back up the recognition of remarriage,
we will find it in:
It is written: Deu 24:1 When a man hath taken a wife,
and married her, and it come to pass that she find
no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some
uncleanness (moral impurity such as fornication) in
her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement,
and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.
Deu 24:2 And when she is departed out of his house,
she may go and be another man's wife. Deu 24:3 And
if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill
of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth
her out of his house; or if the latter husband die,
which took her to be his wife; Deu 24:4 Her former
husband, which sent her away, may not take her again
to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that
is abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not
cause the land to sin, which the LORD thy God giveth
thee for an inheritance.
Let me explain further. Back in old testament times,
men typically had more then one wife. Scripturally
it is not really explained the why, but logically
women in old testament times were totally dependant
on man for survival. There are scriptural laws that
concern the widow, whereas the widow was to be betrothed
by a kinsman of the deceased husband, ie: Ruth and
Boaz for example. God made sure that women were provided
for by man. We can also logically consider that in
the beginning of time, the main objective was to populate
the world God created for us. You will note in scripture,
the way it is addressed in context, most scriptures
concerning marriage, divorce speak directly to men
concerning wives. But men being the head of the home,
scripture was written towards the man and he was to
lead the women in the word. Jesus also was responding
to men, the Pharisees in the marriage/divorce scriptures
and put it in context to men and their wives. This
is yet another passage that speaks of the wife in
context, but do not be fooled, the scriptures and
law of God apply to both sexes. Most likely the representative
husband in this scriptural teaching had other wives
as was typical back when it was written. This wife
was put out, another man took her in and then put
her out himself, and it is stating that she cannot
go back to the first husband or it would be a defilement.
When we get to the new testament Jesus addresses the
multiple wives issue and it is no longer acceptable
to have multiple wives. He says one man to one woman
in the new testament, for life. But where there is
remarriage of both parties, they are not to back track
as the word says, they are to go and sin no more.
New binding vows have been made with God by both parties,
and vows are binding.
What God says about adultery:
The most serious of all
. It is written, Jam
4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that
the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever
therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy
Those in adultery are enemies of God.
It is written, Exo 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
It is written, Deu 5:18 Neither shalt thou commit
It is written, Mat 5:27 Ye have heard that it was
said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
Mat 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh
on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery
with her already in his heart. Mat 5:29 And if thy
right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from
thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy
members should perish, and not that thy whole body
should be cast into hell. Mat 5:30 And if thy right
hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee:
for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members
should perish, and not that thy whole body should
be cast into hell. Mat 5:31 It hath been said, Whosoever
shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing
of divorcement: Mat 5:32 But I say unto you, That
whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the
cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery:
and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth
It is written, Lev 18:20 And you may not have sex
relations with your neighbour's wife, making yourself
unclean with her.
It is written, Heb 13:4 Marriage is honourable in
all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers
God will judge.
It is written, Pro 2:16 To deliver thee from the
strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth
with her words; Pro 2:17 Which forsaketh the guide
of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.
Pro 2:18 For her house inclineth unto death, and her
paths unto the dead. Pro 2:19 None that go unto her
return again, neither take they hold of the paths
And will the spouse remain happy with the adulteress?
No, God says:
It is written, Pro 5:3 For the lips of a strange
woman drop honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil:
Pro 5:4 But in the end she is bitter as wormwood,
Sharp as a two-edged sword. Pro 5:5 Her feet go down
to death; Her steps take hold on Sheol (Hell); Pro
5:6 So that she findeth not the level path of life:
Her ways are unstable, and she knoweth it not. Pro
5:7 Now therefore, my sons, hearken unto me, And depart
not from the words of my mouth. Pro 5:8 Remove thy
way far from her, And come not nigh the door of her
house (Not just do not sleep with her, do not go near
her); Pro 5:9 Lest thou give thine honor unto others,
And thy years unto the cruel; Pro 5:10 Lest strangers
be filled with thy strength, And thy labors be in
the house of an alien, Pro 5:11 And thou mourn at
thy latter end, When thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
It is written, Pro 5:20 And why wilt thou, my son,
be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the
bosom of a stranger? Pro 5:21 For the ways of man
are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth
all his goings. Pro 5:22 His own iniquities shall
take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with
the cords of his sins. Pro 5:23 He shall die without
instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he
shall go astray.
It is written, Pro 6:26 For on account of a harlot
a man is brought to a piece of bread; And the adulteress
hunteth for the precious life.
Pro 6:27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, And his
clothes not be burned? Pro 6:28 Or can one walk upon
hot coals, And his feet not be scorched? Pro 6:29
So he that goeth in to his neighbor's wife; Whosoever
toucheth her shall not be unpunished.
It is written, Pro 6:32 He that committeth adultery
with a woman is void of understanding: He doeth it
who would destroy his own soul.
Pro 6:33 Wounds and dishonor shall he get; And his
reproach shall not be wiped away.
It is written, Pro 7:10 And, behold, there met him
a woman With the attire of a harlot, and wily of heart.
Pro 7:11 She is clamorous and willful; Her feet abide
not in her house: Pro 7:22 He goeth after her straightway,
As an ox goeth to the slaughter, Or as one in fetters
to the correction of the fool; Pro 7:23 Till an arrow
strike through his liver; As a bird hasteth to the
snare, And knoweth not that it is for his life. Pro
7:26 For she hath cast down many wounded: Yea, all
her slain are a mighty host. Pro 7:27 Her house is
the way to Sheol (Hell), Going down to the chambers
It is written, Pro 9:13 The foolish woman is full
of noise; she has no sense at all. Pro 9:14 Seated
at the door of her house, in the high places of the
town, Pro 9:15 Crying out to those who go by, going
straight on their way, she says: Pro 9:16 Whoever
is simple, let him come in here: and to him who is
without sense, she says: Pro 9:17 Drink taken without
right is sweet, and food in secret is pleasing. Pro
9:18 But he does not see that the dead are there,
that her guests are in the deep places of the underworld.
It is written, Lev 20:10 And the man that committeth
adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth
adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer
and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.
It is written, Pro 22:14 The mouth of strange women
is a deep hole: he with whom the Lord is angry will
go down into it.
It is written, Pro 23:27 For a loose woman is a deep
hollow, and a strange woman is a narrow water-hole.
What does God say about someone in adultery?
It is written, Eph 5:5 For this ye know, that no
whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man,
who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom
of Christ and of God.
They are not going to Heaven if caught in that adultery!!
And none of us know the hour of our death.
Will the adulterous spouse and the adulteress/adulterer
they are with, get away with their sin? :
It is written, Eph 5:5 Being certain of this, that
no man who gives way to the passions of the flesh,
no unclean person, or one who has desire for the property
of others, or who gives worship to images, has any
heritage in the kingdom of Christ and God. Eph 5:6
Do not be turned from the right way by foolish words;
for because of these things the punishment of God
comes on those who do not put themselves under him.
It is written, Exo 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy
neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's
wife (See again Eph 5:5
. or one who has desire
for the property of others.. has any heritage in the
kingdom of Christ and God), nor his manservant, nor
his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any
thing that is thy neighbour's.
It is written, Hos 2:5 For their mother hath played
the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully:
for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give
me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine
oil and my drink. Hos 2:6 Therefore, behold, I will
hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that
she shall not find her paths.
It is written, Hos 2:9 So I will take away again
my grain in its time and my wine, and I will take
away my wool and my linen with which her body might
have been covered. Hos 2:10 And now I will make her
shame clear before the eyes of her lovers, and no
one will take her out of my hand. Hos 2:11 And I will
put an end to all her joy, her feasts, her new moons,
and her Sabbaths, and all her regular meetings. Hos
2:12 And I will make waste her vines and her fig-trees,
of which she has said, These are the payments which
my lovers have made to me; and I will make them a
waste of trees, and the beasts of the field will take
them for food. Hos 2:13 And I will give her punishment
for the days of the Baals (obeying satan and being
his child instead of Gods), to whom she has been burning
perfumes, when she made herself fair with her nose-rings
and her jewels, and went after her lovers, giving
no thought to me, says the Lord.
It is written, Jer 7:9 Will ye steal, murder, and
commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense
unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know
It is written, Eze 16:36 This is what the Sovereign
LORD says: "You stripped off your clothes, and
like a prostitute, you gave yourself to your lovers
and to all your disgusting idols, and you killed your
children as sacrifices to idols. Eze 16:37 Because
of this I will bring all your former lovers together---the
ones you liked and the ones you hated. I will bring
them around you in a circle, and then I will strip
off your clothes and let them see you naked. Eze 16:38
I will condemn you for adultery and murder, and in
my anger and fury I will punish you with death. Eze
16:39 I will put you in their power, and they will
tear down the places where you engage in prostitution
and worship idols. They will take away your clothes
and jewels and leave you completely naked. Eze 16:40
"They will stir up a crowd to stone you, and
they will cut you to pieces with their swords. Eze
16:41 They will burn your houses down and let crowds
of women see your punishment. I will make you stop
being a prostitute and make you stop giving gifts
to your lovers.
It is written, Num 5:27 If she has committed adultery,
the water will cause bitter pain; her stomach will
swell up and her genital organs will shrink. Her name
will become a curse among her people.
It is written, Jer 30:14 All your lovers have forgotten

Yes, God Deals with the adulterer and the liar...how
He dealt with those before us:
Will He deal the same with the adulterer today as
He did in the bible?
Note: It is written, Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ the same
yesterday, and today, and forever.
And Heres a Warning: It is written, Heb 12:25 See
that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they
escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much
more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him
that speaketh from heaven:
It is written, Heb 13:4 Let marriage be had in honor
among all, and let the bed be undefiled: for fornicators
and adulterers God will judge.
It is written, Jer 5:7 How can I pardon thee? thy
children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that
are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they
committed adultery, and assembled themselves in troops
at the harlots' houses
It is written, Jer 29:22 And of them shall be taken
up a curse by all the captivity of Judah which are
in Babylon, saying, The LORD make thee like Zedekiah
and like Ahab, whom the king of Babylon roasted in
the fire; Jer 29:23 Because they have committed villany
in Israel, and have committed adultery with their
neighbours' wives, and have spoken lying words in
my name, which I have not commanded them; even I know,
and am a witness, saith the LORD.
It is written, Col 3:4 Your real life is Christ and
when he appears, then you too will appear with him
and share his glory! Col 3:5 You must put to death,
then, the earthly desires at work in you, such as
sexual immorality, indecency, lust, evil passions,
and greed (for greed is a form of idolatry). Col 3:6
Because of such things God's anger will come upon
those who do not obey him.
What did God do about adultery back in the bible?
Here is a testimony of punishment to warn us!
It is written, 2Sa 11:3 And David sent and enquired
after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba,
the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?
2Sa 11:4 And David sent messengers, and took her;
and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for
she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned
unto her house. 2Sa 12:1 And the LORD sent Nathan
unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him,
There were two men in one city; the one rich, and
the other poor. 2Sa 12:2 The rich man had exceeding
many flocks and herds: 2Sa 12:3 But the poor man had
nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought
and nourished up: and it grew up together with him,
and with his children; it did eat of his own meat,
and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and
was unto him as a daughter. 2Sa 12:4 And there came
a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take
of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for
the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took
the poor man's lamb, and dressed it for the man that
was come to him. 2Sa 12:5 And David's anger was greatly
kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As
the LORD liveth, the man that hath done this thing
shall surely die: 2Sa 12:6 And he shall restore the
lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because
he had no pity. 2Sa 12:7 And Nathan said to David,
Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel,
I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered
thee out of the hand of Saul; 2Sa 12:9 Wherefore hast
thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil
in his sight? 2Sa 12:10 Now therefore the sword shall
never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised
me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to
be thy wife. 2Sa 12:11 Thus saith the LORD, Behold,
I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own
house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes,
and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie
with thy wives in the sight of this sun. 2Sa 12:12
For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing
before all Israel, and before the sun. 2Sa 12:15 And
Nathan departed unto his house. And the LORD struck
the child that Uriah's wife bare unto David, and it
was very sick. 2Sa 12:18 And it came to pass on the
seventh day, that the child died. And the servants
of David feared to tell him that the child was dead:
for they said, Behold, while the child was yet alive,
we spake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our
voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell him
that the child is dead? Then
David had three other children besides this child
that died at birth, two sons, Absalom and Amnon, and
a daughter Tamar, and as God said, they were not spared
as well. 2Sa 13:1 And it came to pass after this,
that Absalom the son of David had a fair sister, whose
name was Tamar; and Amnon the son of David loved her.
2Sa 13:2 And Amnon was so vexed, that he fell sick
for his sister Tamar; for she was a virgin; and Amnon
thought it hard for him to do any thing to her. 2Sa
13:10 And Amnon said unto Tamar, Bring the meat into
the chamber, that I may eat of thine hand. And Tamar
took the cakes which she had made, and brought them
into the chamber to Amnon her brother. 2Sa 13:11 And
when she had brought them unto him to eat, he took
hold of her, and said unto her, Come lie with me,
my sister. 2Sa 13:12 And she answered him, Nay, my
brother, do not force me; for no such thing ought
to be done in Israel: do not thou this folly. 2Sa
13:13 And I, whither shall I cause my shame to go?
and as for thee, thou shalt be as one of the fools
in Israel. Now therefore, I pray thee, speak unto
the king; for he will not withhold me from thee. 2Sa
13:14 Howbeit he would not hearken unto her voice:
but, being stronger than she, forced her, and lay
with her. (Incest comes to Davids house and his daughter
is defiled) 2Sa 13:15 Then Amnon hated her exceedingly;
so that the hatred wherewith he hated her was greater
than the love wherewith he had loved her. And Amnon
said unto her, Arise, be gone. 2Sa 13:20 And Absalom
her brother said unto her, Hath Amnon thy brother
been with thee? but hold now thy peace, my sister:
he is thy brother; regard not this thing. So Tamar
remained desolate in her brother Absalom's house.
2Sa 13:22 And Absalom spake unto his brother Amnon
neither good nor bad: for Absalom hated Amnon, (Hate
has come to Davids house) because he had forced his
sister Tamar. 2Sa 13:28 Now Absalom had commanded
his servants, saying, Mark ye now when Amnon's heart
is merry with wine, and when I say unto you, Smite
Amnon; then kill him, (Another son of Davids loses
his life) fear not: have not I commanded you? be courageous,
and be valiant. 2Sa 13:29 And the servants of Absalom
did unto Amnon as Absalom had commanded. Then all
the king's sons arose, and every man gat him up upon
his mule, and fled. 2Sa 18:9 And Absalom met the servants
of David. And Absalom rode upon a mule, and the mule
went under the thick boughs of a great oak, and his
head caught hold of the oak, and he was taken up between
the heaven and the earth; and the mule that was under
him went away. 2Sa 18:17 And they took Absalom, and
cast him into a great pit in the wood, and laid a
very great heap of stones upon him (Davids third and
last son loses his life): and all Israel fled every
one to his tent.
King David, beloved of God, His chosen, (the head
of the linage of Christ, and thus why Christ is called
son of man), because he took the wife of Uriah in
adultery, lost all of his sons, and his daughter was
molested by one of his sons and defiled. God cursed
the house of David for what he did with Bathsheba,
and hate, death and incest visited his house because
of it. But also as God spoke, Davids son came against
him and his kingdom also (a lot of hate came to his
house) and David spent a long time in a war with his
own son before he died, so David suffered the separation
with his only son left to him, and then lost him as
well during a battle between them, how horrible is
that. 2Sa 15:14 And David said unto all his servants
that were with him at Jerusalem, Arise, and let us
flee; for we shall not else escape from Absalom: make
speed to depart, lest he overtake us suddenly, and
bring evil upon us, and smite the city with the edge
of the sword.
