What You Should Know About Divorce, Sex, Adultery And Marriage
Dr Myles Munroe
Most of the marriages I have seen in churches, shouldn’t have been done in churches, they should have been done in the registry office. Why? Because when they join you together, then be ready, they can put asunder.
You come before God, you say “to get married” and you go before the lawyer to get divorce….. That’s confusing to me!
If you come before God to be put together, then when you ready to be put apart,
Invite everybody back
Get the bride’s maid
Get the groom’s man
Get on the music
Get the flowers and make sure God is present and say “now we want to be put asunder”…… I dare you!
How dare you go before God to be married(I do) and go before the judge to be divorce(I don’t) …. Hypocrite!
Mathew 19:9, “I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery.”
He said, I didn’t create divorce, I don’t agree with it but atleast, I will give you a standard. The standard is, you shouldn’t even think about divorce unless the other party has violated the marriage bed. Why does He use the word “adultery” ?
According to Jesus, there is no other ground for divorce(you can’t say “you don’t love him/her anymore” or we outgrew each other or I got saved does not qualify you for divorce). The only way out is ADULTERY. That means in heaven, God have a lot of people still married who is divorced on earth. That’s why they keep committing adultery over and over again with other people because as heaven is concerned, YOU ARE STILL MARRIED!
If you marry a person and you decide to separate, you can not marry anybody else no matter how long, as long as the other person doesn’t commit adultery.
So, a lawyer and judge can not destroy a marriage in God’s kingdom. The only one that can destroy a marriage in God’s kingdom, is an ADULTERER.
So, if you decide you can’t live with someone anymore and not on the ground of adultery and you leave apart, God is watching because in heaven you are still married. When they commit adultery and you know and you can prove it, then you are free to marry again.
Do you know why?
Because whenever you get married and you consummate that marriage with sex, blood is spilled. That’s why two(2) men can not consummate a marriage. That’s why two(2) women can not consummate a marriage. Why? Because there is no blood covenant possible.
See, marriage is not about rings, marriage is about blood. That’s why the Bible talk so much about the blood because the blood is the foundation of both life and death. Life and death is in the blood. That’s why every female comes to the earth locked up. And the designer did a good job, and he locked her up with a little skin called ”hymen” and that skin is filled with blood and the doctors says the hymen is an organ and all the organ supplies is BLOOD.
And the only way to open a female is to spill blood on yourself and her(is a blood covenant). So, when a woman is opened by a man for the first time, there is a covenant. That’s why sex is only relegated to marriage because you don’t want to cut covenant with anybody who will not be with you forever.
My wife and I caught a covenant on our wedding night, blood on both of us. If you study the scripture carefully, you will understand how deep these things is to God. God told Moses, when a man got married and when they went in to the wedding bed for the first night, the priest had to stand outside the door waiting for the white sheet and standing next to the priest was the whole community and their parents with stones in their hands and if she came out and there was nothing on it, somebody dies.
So when the blood covenant is spilled between me and my wife on that marriage bed UNDEFILED(no problem on the bed). Then, if I was to have sex with another woman, I cut another covenant.
