So much has been happening in my personal life, truthfully I just want to run and hide. But I cannot because I love the LORD with all of my heart, soul, mind, and strength, and I love my neighbor as myself.
So I cannot go and hide away especially in the hour we are living in.
I go in tomorrow to see my oncologist hopefully will be at some news regardless of good or bad but know whats going on.
Then with the smear campaign going on concerning me, and the past being dug up to destroy me and my family because of a jealous rage and bitterness in the hearts of some.
Then watching my children be so focused on this election and things of this world rather than on Jesus Christ. My heart is being tore up.
Then what the LORD opened up to me concerning marriage, divorce, remarriage. and adultery. He now wants me to continue opening it up after a few month reprieve. Today was just not a day I wanted to do this. But God has placed it in my spirit to write about it again and obedience is better than sacrifice. I want to obey and not grieve or quench the Holy Spirit.
I cannot allow what I am going through with my health, personal attacks and spiritual attacks stop me from sounding the alarm and telling you what the Word of God states so clear and precise concerning marriage, divorce, and remarriage. I have learned by firsthand experience what Paul meant when he said, “Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?” I have had family walk away, friends, Christian sisters unfriend me when I was on Facebook. I have been told to be silent because I am a woman, I have been told to keep my mouth shut because I am too young in the LORD to share what the LORD has given me.
I have been told by more than one woman that they “feel” that God has forgiven them and that their new marriage is blessed by God. (Yet, that goes against what the Word of God says.) One told me they married too young, it didn’t work out therefore God does not count that against them. But what does the Bible say? What did Jesus Christ say? What did Apostle Paul say? Some believe that if they were married and divorced before being born again that when they are born again that God forgets they were even married?! HUH?
WHOSOEVER SHALL PUT AWAY HIS WIFE, AND MARRY ANOTHER, COMMITTETH ADULTERY AGAINST HER. AND IF A WOMAN SHALL PUT AWAY HER HUSBAND, AND BE MARRIED TO ANOTHER, SHE COMMITTETH ADULTERY.
That WHOSOEVER IS EVERYONE SINNER AND SAINT!
The Word of God is very clear. Jesus spoke plain concerning divorce and remarriage, Apostle Paul who was not taught by man but by Christ Himself reconfirms it so we are not confused.
Fornication (PORNIEA) is sexual perversion, and sexual acts OUTSIDE of marriage. Adultery (MOCHEIA) is a sexual encounter with someone other than your spouse!
Read the verse below this is in Matthew 5~
But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication (porniea) , causeth her to commit adultery (mochicea): and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery. Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
Jesus knew the difference!

ADULTERY IS NOT A STIPULATION FOR A DIVORCE & remarriage
Apostle Paul knew the difference!
For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
When you are born again you are forgiven from sins, and through repentance you do not go back to your sin, repentance means to turn away from!
They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 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 (PORNIEA), and shall marry another, committeth adultery (MOCHIEA): and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery (MOCHIEA). His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.
(Some of the Eunuchs can be those who are divorced and remain single for the kingdom of God instead of committing adultery, those who also have a spouse that has died and remain single for the kingdom of God. On top of those who have never been married and has never committed fornication.)
I have stated before and I will restate it again. Matthew was written to the Jewish believers that is why he never wrote “kingdom of God” but wrote the “kingdom of heaven”. When Jesus spoke on the case of “fornication” they KNEW EXACTLY what He was saying and ADULTRY did not enter their mind, but, a women who was NOT A VIRGIN on her wedding night! Exactly how Joseph was going to put (DIVORCE) Mary privately when he found out she was pregnant! They were not “MARRIED” but betrothed, yet, in Jewish belief when you are betrothed it is binding as marriage without the consummation.
Luke and Mark was written to Gentiles, which in that day it was ok to be divorced and remarried no big deal the Roman era. But Jesus set them straight as well. Jesus states WHOSOEVER the same exact WHOSOEVER in John 3:16! Sinner and saint alike WHOSOEVER!
But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter. And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.
Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.
Just like if you were a liar, you lie no more. If you were a thief, you steal no more, AND IF YOU ARE AN ADULTERER YOU NO LONGER COMMIT ADULTERY! You do not go home and lay in the same bed with anyone that is not the spouse that God recognizes, which is your first spouse.
If you were married before and your spouse is still alive you are to remain single! If you remarry, Jesus says you are committing adultery. Apostle Paul says the exact same thing. You cannot go on what your “heart” says, or what you “feel”. You must go to the Word of God and read it as it is written then you either accept it or reject it but that Word will judge you one day make sure you know without hesitations that God is either wrong, or made a mistake.
JOHN GILL concerning what God has joined together~
Wherefore they are no more twain,…. They were two before marriage, but now no more so; not but that they remain two distinct persons, but one flesh; or, as the Syriac, Arabic, Persic, and Ethiopic versions read, “one body”: hence the wife is to beloved by the husband as his own body, as himself, as his own flesh, Eph_5:28. what therefore God hath joined together; or, by the first institution of marriage, has declared to be so closely united together, as to be, as it were, one flesh, and one body, as husband and wife are; let no man put asunder; break the bond of union, dissolve the relation, and separate them from each other, for every trivial thing, upon any slight occasion, or for anything; but what is hereafter mentioned. The sense is, that the bond of marriage being made by God himself, is so sacred and inviolable, as that it ought not to be dissolved by any man; not by the husband himself, or any other for him; nor by any state or government, by any prince or potentate, by any legislator whatever; no, not by Moses himself, who is, at least, included, if not chiefly designed here, though not named, to avoid offence: and God and man being opposed in this passage, shows, that marriage is an institution and appointment of God, and therefore not to be changed and altered by man at his pleasure; this not merely a civil, but a sacred affair, in which God is concerned.
Gal 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
Gal 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, (THEY ARE NOT THE SAME!) uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Mat 15:18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
Mat 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
Mat 15:20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
1Co 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (transgender males~ having the qualities of the female sex; soft or delicate to an unmanly degree; tender; womanish; voluptuous.) , nor abusers of themselves with mankind (homosexuals),
1Co 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
1Co 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Many in the pews will speak against the sin of homosexuals, transgenderism, but when it comes to divorce and remarriage as adultery they will fight you over it because the majority are remarried and will not accept what Word of God says about divorce and remarriage so they will make excuse and run to and fro to get someone in the Church to agree with them!
Teachings on Marriage
1 Corinthians 7
1Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. 3Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. 4The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. 5Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. 6But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment. 7For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.
10And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: 11But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.
12But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away. 13And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. 14For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. 15But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. 16For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
Live According to Your Calling
17But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches. 18Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised. 19Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God. 20Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.
21Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather. 22For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord’s freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ’s servant. 23Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men. 24Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.
Instructions to Unmarried and Widowed
25Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful. 26I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be. 27Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife. 28But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you. 29But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none; 30And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not; 31And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.
32But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: 33But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. 34There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband. 35And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.
36But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry. 37Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well. 38So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.
39The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord. 40But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.
Apostle Paul was personally taught by the LORD Jesus Christ for THREE YEARS!
Gal 1:15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace,
Gal 1:16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
Gal 1:17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.
Gal 1:18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.
This is why his writing are under attack today! Because he taught and expounded on exactly what Jesus taught!
God honors and remembers YOUR FIRST SPOUSE! AND CALLS IT A COVENANT!
Mal 2:14 Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.
Mal 2:15 And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.
Mal 2:16 For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.
JOHN GILL explains this wonderfully
Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth: when espoused together in their youthful days, the Lord was present at that solemn contract, and saw the obligations they were laid under to each other, and he was called upon by both parties to be a witness of the same; and at the present time he was a witness how agreeably the wives of the Israelites had behaved towards their husbands, and how treacherously they had acted towards them; he saw and knew, that, whatever pretensions they made, they did not love them, nor behave as they should towards them; and therefore had just cause of complaint against them, and must be a witness for the one, and against the other: this sin of hating and divorcing their wives, or of marrying others besides them, which prevailed much in our Lord’s time, is particularly mentioned, though they were guilty of many other sins, as a reason of the Lord’s not accepting their offerings: the aggravations of it are, that they had broken a contract God was witness to, and dealt injuriously with wives they had espoused in the days of their youth; see Pro_2:17,
against whom thou hast dealt treacherously; by divorce or polygamy: the Vulgate Latin version renders it, “whom thou hast despised”: and the Septuagint and Arabic versions, “whom thou hast left”; divorced and took others, which arose from hatred and contempt of their former: other aggravations follow:
yet is she thy companion; or, “and she is”, or “though she is thy companion” (c): has been so in time past, and ought to be so still, and so accounted: the wife is a part of a man’s self, is one flesh with him; a partaker of what he has; a partner with him in prosperity and adversity; a companion in life, civil and religious, and ought to remain so till death part them; for, whom God has put together, let no man put asunder:
and the wife of thy covenant; wherefore either to divorce her, or marry another, was a breach of covenant; for by “covenant” is not meant the covenant of God made with the people of Israel, in which they both were; but the covenant of marriage made between them, and which was broken by such practices.
The Talmud says it is ok to divorce and remarry for multiple reasons, the Word of God calls it adultery. The Talmud is oral tradition that Jesus condemned in His day. It is a book of mysticism, witchcraft, and pure wickedness.
You believe the Written Word of God or the Talmud but do not mix the Holy with the profane.
Now before I get emails and hate speech concerning this, first I am not calling you an adulterer I am not saying you are not saved. I am telling you from the Word of God what He says. My opinion means zero, I am no ones judge, nor do I desire to be.
This is not easy for me either. I have been married and divorced FIVE TIMES! Now, after being taught by the Holy Spirit and shown in scripture I am very much aware I can never remarry again. When I was forgiven for my sins, I repented, meaning I turned away from them not to continue in them. I was forgiven for adultery and now understand as long as my first husband, the husband of my youth is still alive, I can not be remarried. I have dedicated my life in complete celibacy to the LORD Jesus Christ and desire to live a life holy and acceptable to Him.
I love each and everyone of you I truly do. The love I have is the love that God shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Ghost, so this love will speak the truth regardless of the hate speech and backlash. Because your soul salvation and reconciliation with the Father through Christ Jesus is more important than being “liked” by all.
Take every single thing I have written to the LORD. Search the scriptures to see if this is so. Know what the Word of God says for yourself, quit running around to teachers having itching ears trying to find one that will agree with your sin. Go to the LORD.
