A Test for Jesus? Pharisees came testing Him Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just an reason? The answer was NO.
What did Moses say? Moses did not command to divorce. Moses permitted divorce for one reason. Pre-marital fornication. Not permitted for adultery. Adultery was punishable with stoning. Pre-marital fornication was also punishable by death if covered up with deceit.
What applies to us today? For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband. So then if while her husband lives, she marries another man, she will be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies she is free from that law Romans 7:2-3
What applies to us today? Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord; A wife is not to depart from her husband. But if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband I Corinthians 7:10-11, 39
What applies to us today? Now in the house His disciples asked Him again about the same matter. So He said to them,Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery. Mark 10:10-12
What applies to us today? Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced from her husband commits adultery Luke 16:18
Conclusion Will you be, or are you part of an honorable marriage? Do you have an understanding of Gods honorable institution? Do you know what one is? It is why we say to death do us part. Remember, God joins the 2 into 1. And they are no longer 2, but 1. Dont allow your situation to dictate you doctrine, rather let Gods doctrine dictate your situation – that is what makes us disciples.
Conclusion Are you treating your spouse honorably? Hopefully, you are not taking advantage of them, not abusing them. Hopefully you are rendering the affection due one another, treating the other as yourself. Husbands sacrificially loving your wives Wives submitting to your husbands House filled with love and blessing from the Lord
