How do you tell your husband, “I want a divorce because I love you and value your life, your soul?”.  I know first hand there’s no easy way, there’s never a “right” time, he’ll most likely NEVER understand when you first say it, and it’s best to just say it.  Am I co-signing divorces? Absolutely not!  I am co-signing the complete opposite. Once you marry you should NEVER divorce. Marriages aren’t designed with exception clauses.  When you marry, you marry for life.  I don’t care what your prenuptial agreement declares (Prenuptial agreements are a horse of another color that I may go on a rant about later but, for now will only ask this in response “Why are you going into a marriage thinking about how you can or should end the marriage?”). However, if you are in an adulterous marriage, then you definitely need to get a divorce.  You are out of line and out of God’s will.  This was the predicament that I was in. Once I realized my error I wanted to correct it immediately.  I even did research to see if I could get the marriage annulled since it was void anyway.  In my state I couldn’t for the reasoning I had. Even though I live in the Bible belt the alleged Bible belt doesn’t “honor” God’s law.

This is a hard word. It’s a hard lesson to teach and an even harder lesson for most to understand. We have been conditioned to accept this sin. People love this sin and most pastors practice this sin and encourage others to do it! Somewhere in history we allowed the devil in the church. We allowed him to twist the understanding of this doctrine. That is why it is vital – I can’t stress this enough, VITAL that you do not entrust your life/soul to your pastor. Lean not on your own understanding, lean not on man’s understanding, but God’s. I’ve toiled over “how” to explain this for months. I’ve gotten into arguments (disagreements rather, I refuse to argue with anyone when I’m standing on God’s word) on Facebook. I’ve had my ex-mother-in-law angrily tell me how disappointed in me she is, and how my interpretation is wrong. How “her God” is a loving God a knows her heart and would never send her to hell for this (She’s currently practicing this sin and has been for approximately 28 years. Her first husband is still living and is re-married as well). That lead to a whole other disagreement but now we are creating our own version of God and it was just draining.

You can’t imagine how frustrating it is for me trying to explain this. I am exited! Fired up even, because I am no longer blind to a false doctrine. I want to preach this gospel to anyone that will hear me because it will stop you from entering the kingdom of God. Adulterers cannot enter the kingdom of the Lord.  I don’t want anyone to go to hell behind this foolish mistake. It’s foolish because if you read the scriptures regarding this subject it is very plain. It’s not hidden. It’s not a mysterious parable. Jesus was straight forward with His stance on divorce and re-marriage.  And I understand where people get lost or confused (Hello! I’m guilty! I married a married man!). So let’s break down these barriers:

1. We are falsely taught that if someone cheats during the marriage then it’s okay to get divorced.

2.  We are taught that fornication means adultery.

3. Some men think that if their wife cheats on them they have a green light to divorce and re-marry but she does not.

4. Some people are stuck following Moses law.

5. Some people are unequally yoked and do not want to live with their choice. The wife or husband “they” chose and choose to ignore this doctrine or pull from other scriptures (out of context) to make divorce okay.

Let’s start chopping these lies down.

We are falsely taught that if someone cheats during the marriage then it’s okay to get divorced.

God hates divorce! and explains this. Your reasoning for divorce is irrelevant. You’re suppose to stick it out, work it out. You are one until death do you part. You’re not green lit to divorce because he or she cheats on you. That’s a communication barrier, unmet needs or any host of other things that you two need to work out. Does it break your heart that your spouse broke that sacred bond? Yes! Might that cause some trust issues? Of course! But, you agreed to “For better or worse”. Stop looking for loopholes there aren’t any except death (also not co-signing killing your spouse either – The ten commandments are still in full effect).

We are taught that fornication means adultery.
They are not the same thing.

Fornication = Voluntary sexual intercourse between two unmarried persons or two persons not married to each other. – Dictionary.com

Adultery = Voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and someone other than his or her lawful spouse. – Dictionary.com

You can only commit fornication if you are not married. Adultery is committed when either party is married to another person.  So in other words you cannot commit fornication against your spouse – you’re married so it’s adultery.  Only unmarried people “fornicate”.  Also don’t get confused by these NIV translations on the word “fornication”. They replaced the word fornication with sexual immorality. Those two words don’t even fall together in the dictionary. So what did God mean in Matthew 19:9 when he says “9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.”  Fornication in this instance is referencing two engaged people. They are set to be married or are to one another. If it was found before the marriage that one had cheated with another then it was okay to call off the marriage which in essence a divorce.

Some men think that if their wife cheats on them they have a green light to divorce and re-marry but she does not.

Some people are petty and choose to play on pronouns. In Matthew 19:8-9 God says “…and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.” Some men choose that to mean that they are off the hook and only she cannot re-marry. But, God knew how petty people are and said it again in This scripture also removes any doubt about the word “fornication” or the made up conjunction “sexual immorality”.

Some people are stuck following Moses law.

Polygamy is wrong. Divorce and re-marriage is wrong.  A wife and a mistress is wrong. Children out of wedlock is wrong. I went on this rant because it irritates me that I have to even mention it. God says that he only allowed people to divorce under Moses because their hearts were hardened. That from the very beginning it was Adam and Eve. It was always suppose to be one man with one woman in a union. Again, Jesus was very clear on this in

Some people are unequally yoked and do not want to live with their choice. The wife or husband “they” chose and choose to ignore this doctrine or pull from other scriptures (out of context) to make divorce okay.

If you are close with God, meaning you have a relationship, then he will reveal your spouse to you. I am just sure of it (It hasn’t happen to me yet, but I have faith that since I have asked, if it is in His will for me to marry that He will definitely let me know for sure who my husband is). But, the problem is we get in way with our impatience and “free will”. Can we choose our spouse? Yes, that’s apart of your free will. But, I think I like it best ( – And this is my PERSONAL opinion- nowhere is this is scripture ) when God arranges the marriage. I personally believe that God has someone special matched for each of us. That if we trust Him that there’s no worry in being unequally yoked. But God in His infinite wisdom knew that some of us are impatient. Some of us are shallow, we marr:14y for beauty, wealth, status, loneliness, sin-child out of wedlock, tired of waiting, etc. and would rush into marriage without truly thinking things through. He also knew that some of us would marry with the hopes that the marriage would some how change the other person. This is why he warned us in and even further back in about being with someone  that doesn’t match you or your beliefs. You both should be on one accord from the very beginning. Love is easy. Marriage is a challenge, but it shouldn’t be a struggle at every turn. If you are a follower of Christ and you find out after your married that your spouse isn’t or isn’t willing you can’t just jump ship.

So with all of these fallacies debunked, I went hard and leaned heavily on God’s word. I thought my husband would fight me on it, but I prayed that he wouldn’t.  He did what most men would do in his situation; He dusted off his Bible and started throwing other scriptures at me out of context . All of the scriptures  thrown my way were really good, but again out of context and I had to explain that those are meant for the wife of his youth and that God’s word doesn’t contradict itself, it’s consistent and the same always.

We ended up in this really strange place. In my mind we were already divorced. I was just trying to figure out how to make it legal. In his mind he was about to loose his wife and this was the moment that he went into over-drive of trying to be the perfect husband. He started trying to “fix” our marriage. It was hard because I kept having to explain that he didn’t do anything wrong. That all of a sudden being super attentive, ultra supportive of my Bible studies, being overly accommodating, not arguing with me, massaging my wrist and putting his laundry in the hamper wasn’t the magic fix. I had to explain that I still loved him but “how” I loved him changed.  That I loved him more than I ever had because I wasn’t willing to be selfish and stay with him. I wanted salvation for his soul. I wanted  to be able to chop it up with him in heaven. I wanted him to reconcile with his wife. I wanted us back in God’s good grace.

He started to make it a point each day to tell me that I was still his wife. He actually did that up until the day our divorce was finalized. When he said it, it made me angry and sad at the same time.  I would instinctively say, “No I’m not! XYZ is your wife! Remember the one you married at 20?!? Then he’d get just as angry at me and tell me how she wasn’t and I was and I’d get sad because I could hear the hurt in his voice. He felt  like I was rejecting him personally. I was always soft and gentle when I would say that it wasn’t personal and that I was being obedient to God. I asked him to pray for understanding. He started to take me seriously 3 months later when I stopped wearing my ring.  We finally reached a point of talking about how to amicability end the marriage. I didn’t want any lawyers involved. It was unnecessary. We agreed on how to split our property, finances and the custody of our child. So I researched and with Jesus as my advocate found that once I filed if he agreed with my outlined petition and signed it we’d only have to wait 90 days then I would have to go before a judge and have it approved.

I am not a lawyer or a paralegal. I work in Information Technology. I know enough about the law to know my rights and that’s about it. But Jesus stepped forward, held my hand and walked me through the entire process.  I felt confident in my paper work but anxious. By the time the date had rolled around my husband had moved back in with his wife (Won’t God do it?!?) and I had been living just on my income – with the same bills we both had shared for 30 days.  He surprised me and offered to come with me to court as support. In my county you don’t know who your judge is until the day of your hearing. In the waiting area I decided to google my assigned judge and look at the reviews. Turns out I ended up with the poorest rated judge.  This judge was accused of denying marriages for littlest of things (missing insignificant documents) and was known to side with the father in most cases. After reading the reviews even my husband started to question my paperwork because I had made his obligation of child-support next to nothing- $47.00 a month, that’s right forty-seven dollars a month. I had done this because child support was the only thing we didn’t agree on. He didn’t feel he should be legally bound to the standard amount required or dictated by his income if he agreed to pay for whatever our child needed. I felt he should pay something as I was going to be the primary care giver, but I didn’t want that to stall our divorce. I wasn’t going to fight him over money.  That to me is stupid. So I worked it to where legally we both have joint-custody but I have primary custody.  By doing this I could low-ball the child support payment.  He didn’t think the judge would sign off on it and brought it up off and on until court started.

True to the reports before the judge even entered the room 1/4th of the plaintiff’s were dismissed due to paper work issues. Once the judge entered court and started proceedings he denied 3 out of 4 he heard. Then my name was called.  I was the only one to have not only my Defendant with me but also supporting me.  He didn’t ask  me but one question (Did we complete our parent counseling and did we have the paper work). He spent less than 5 minutes reviewing my legal documents, then looked up and said, “Congratulations you are officially divorced. Don’t forget to turn in my signed copy to the clerks office to make it official before you leave.” He then signed the documents and wished us well. I was so re-leaved and happy. We were both surprised that it was so easy and effortless.  All we did was show up and God did the rest!

I am sharing this because I want people to know the truth about divorce and re-marriage.  I am sharing this because I want you to know that if you are in an adulterous marriage and you have an open heart to God that he will make a way for you to be able to leave it and fully repent. God has been so wonderful to me. So patient with me. Even when I didn’t deserve it. I am so glad that he knows my heart. Not my flesh, but my heart.  I appreciate the discipline He gives me. I know that He does it for my correction and because He loves me.

    Oh, honey. I don’t think you even realize the mess that you’ve created. You forced your husband into a divorce that he didn’t agree with and had no legitimate say in the matter because you lacked the cultural and political context of the divorce laws. The entire covenant was presented to the Israelites in a way that they would understand and we commit grave error when we filter the scriptures through our modern culture instead of theirs.

    God is a divorcee. He divorced the Israelites because they refused to turn away from their fake gods (adultery). This can be found in Jeremiah 3, Isaiah 50, and Hosea 2. If divorce is a sin, then God has committed sin, which is impossible. He is perfect and incapable of breaking His own laws. God hating something is different than it being considered a sin. God hates blood sacrifices, but He was the one that introduced the sacrificial system when Adam and Eve got booted from Eden and included sacrificial laws in Mosaic Law. Why? Because it served a purpose. Without the sacrificial system, Jesus’ crucifixion is meaningless. Jesus was the last blood sacrifice. Murder is wrong, but He provides exceptions in which it’s acceptable–self defense and as punishment for a crime. God included laws for divorce. Those laws can be found in Deuteronomy 24, not in the New Testament. Divorce is lawful under two circumstances: if one party breaks the covenant, the other party absolutely has the right to seek legal recognition of that–this is the only situation in which one party may choose to seek divorce without giving the other party a say in the matter. In ancient near east culture, adultery was pretty much the only way that a woman would violate the marriage covenant. The covenant has already been broken, divorce is simply legal recognition of that. It is also acceptable even if it isn’t ideal if BOTH parties agree to terminate the marriage. All covenants include an out clause where both parties can choose to end it. This is the very nature of a covenant, and we have no true understanding of the intricacies of how covenants worked back then in our modern culture. One party cannot choose to divorce the other without a breech of the covenant terms.

    Hillel had taken God’s laws on divorce and twisted them, creating a system of “any cause” divorces. Divorce was rampant in Jesus’ time. Women were viewed as property and their only real options were marriage or prostitution. This is why polygamy was allowed, even if it’s not ideal and is no longer culturally relevant. Men were throwing away their wives over trivial things and their wives had no say in the matter. In Matthew 19, they were discussing the any cause divorces. They never asked Jesus about remarriage after divorce. They didn’t need to, because Mosaic Law allowed for divorce and remarriage. Jesus did, however, clarify that if a divorce falls under “any cause” then it is an unlawful divorce and any future marriage would be considered adultery. Jesus cannot change God’s laws, because it would be a sin, and God included terms for lawful divorce and remarriage.

    An adulterous marriage is very distinctly defined in the bible. If a person divorces their spouse when they have not broken the covenant, and if their spouse does not have a say in the matter, then that divorce is unlawful in God’s eyes. This is exactly what you did to your husband. An adulterous marriage, however, does not mean that God will not honor the victim’s new marriage. Marriages produce children and God would not punish children for something that they have nothing to do with. If a person throws away their spouse when they have done nothing wrong, and that spouse remarries, it is considered adultery. However, the bible also very clearly states that God holds the one who filed for the unlawful divorce responsible for the victim’s sin. If your husband has any relationships or marriage in the future, his sin falls on your head because you are the one that threw him away when he did nothing wrong. Any future relationships or marriage that you have will also be adulterous.

    Also, if a couple divorces, they cannot remarry. This is one of the primary reasons that Jesus needed to die. So that God could lawfully renew the covenant with Israel when the time comes. So even though your divorce is unlawful in God’s eyes, you are no longer legally married by human laws and cannot lawfully remarry each other.

    There also needs to be clarification on your statement that some people are stuck in Mosaic Law. We are no longer under the covenant, however, that does not mean that God’s laws are not still in place. Jesus didn’t nullify the law and give us a license to sin. Nullifying the law and teaching others that the law is no longer relevant is a sin. Jesus attached a condition of LOVE to the law, because the Israelites broke the covenant and God DIVORCED them. If you LOVE me, then you will follow my Father’s commandments.

    Learn to test the spirit. Always. Test. The. Spirit. Satan can disguise himself as an angel of light. If you are finding that scriptures are causing a conflict with other scriptures, or if you find that a verse or passage contradicts God’s laws, then there is a problem with your interpretation. We are no longer under the covenant, but God’s standard of righteous living does not change. God is a divorcee and included laws for lawful divorce and remarriage. Period. It is absolutely appalling that you think God would expect someone to stay married to a serial killer. Your god is not the loving, kind, merciful, and forgiving God in the bible.

      Ashley,

      Thank you for taking the time out to read my testimony and to comment. I sincerely apologize for not seeing your comment before to authorize its posting. Please know that once I saw it I published it in its entirety after glancing over it. I realize that there are a lot of people that feel the same way you do which is why I am eager to respond and continue in obedience to sound the alarm on this topic.

      So first, things first, let’s clarify a couple of things:

      I am not advocating anyone divorcing the spouse of their youth. I am advocating the COMPLETE OPPOSITE. If it is both parties FIRST marriage EVER (Meaning no other living spouses) then I am advocating for that marriage to stay – Until death due you part.

      I AM strongly sounding the alarm and warning people as I have been called to do, Against Divorce and Re-marriage while one or both parties have a living spouse. That is a sin. It’s breaking a covenant. The only way a covenant can be broken is through death. Divorce and re-marriage is considered Adultery. And adultery will not inherit the kingdom of God.

      I am sharing this because I DO NOT WANT PEOPLE TO GO TO HELL FOR THIS. I DO NOT WANT PEOPLE FOLLOWING FALSE DOCTORINE AND GOING TO HELL OVER LIES AND SELFISHNESS.

      Jesus loved me so much that he pulled me aside, thoroughly rebuked me, unblinded my eyes and gave me a choice, Life or Death. Not everyone gets that special discipline. Not everyone gets pulled by the ear kicking and screaming and sat down and rebuked. Why? Because their hearts are hardened. Because they refuse to listen when told. Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior said in Matthew 19:11 “Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given.” For the full context Read all of Mathew 19:1-12. The Pharisees came to Jesus asking this very same thing. “Is it okay to divorce and re-marry?” When He told them no, they shot back with, “Then why did Moses say it was okay?”. Jesus’ reply: Matthew 19:8 “He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeh adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. -Jesus Christ words not mine. You can argue with me, but how do you argue with God?

      I’m not some bitter broken person that’s trying to be a kill joy for people that want to dishonor their vows and remarry someone else because:

      1. They Married Too Young

      2. They Grew Apart Instead of Together

      3. The Person They Married Isn’t Who They Thought They Were

      4. They’ve Found Their Soul-Mate In Someone Else

      5. Marriage Isn’t What They Thought or it was arranged or a business transaction

      6. They Realize They’re Not The Marrying Type

      7. They Are Broke or Utterly Unhappy

      8. Their Spouse Turned Into A Felon

      9. Their Spouse Mistreats or Abuses Them

      10.They Don’t Want or Can’t Have Children

      Or any other reason that man will come up with to break or go into Direct Violation of what Jesus Christ said in Matthew 19:6

      “So they are no longer two, but one flesh, Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

      With that being said, this is NOT my personal opinion. This is God’s words not mine. It’s in scripture verbatim. I’ve notated each scripture. I’ve not twisted any scriptures that back this up nor have a scripture hopped – pulled from one passage and pieced together with another scripture out of context. I let God’s word stand completely on its own.

      You stated that God is a divorcee and that if divorce is a sin then God has sinned and God cannot sin. You cited Jeremiah 3, Isaiah 50 and Hosea 2 as your references of God being a divorcee. First I do not know how you can compare a spiritual marriage with a flesh marriage. It’s not the same. You can’t cite those Books/Chapters and lump sum it to equate a fleshly marriage. It doesn’t. And more on point, I’ll go there with you for just a minute and set that aside just look at what was said. God put away Israel yes but he didn’t go and marry Egypt. Instead he kept calling back his wife to be reconciled with Him. To honor the marriage.

      You then brought up the mosaic laws for divorce in Deuteronomy and breech of terms and re-iterating it’s okay to divorce. Murder is okay in certain situations or the subject of polygamy being acceptable. It’s not. The covenant of being completely bound to Mosaic laws was broken when Jesus Christ died on the cross. That’s how covenants are broken death. Not exception clauses. We would still be under mosaic law -expected to follow every commandment fully without exception if Christ had not died on the cross. No language of faith, grace, mercy, forgiveness of sin would be possible with a New Covenant if we were still held under that. We are no longer bound to all of the 613 commandments under the Mosaic law. I’m not going to sit here and list out 613 Mosaic commandments and then tell you which ones are still valid and which ones are null. Jesus didn’t do that either. He touched on the important ones that would cause obvious confusion e.g. Divorce and rest should be easy to decipher God’s word lines up in unity. When lead by the Holy Spirit it’s easy to connect the dots and have understanding of how The Old Testament is merged and completed with the New Testament.

      With all of that being said, I’m certain we still sharply disagree. So, lets agree to disagree and I pray that you fast and bring all of this to God for clarity.
