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 in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.
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.
The Pharisees and the Sadducees had a misconception concerning marriage because Moses had told them to issue a certificate of divorce to their wives if they were not pleased with them anymore. However, Jesus said to them, “in the beginning it was not so.” Why? God designed for His children who have been joined in holy matrimony to live together as husband and wife in oneness. Marriage is entirely God’s own idea, not the idea of man. It was the Lord God that said in Genesis 2:18 “…it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help suitable for him.” It was the Lord that caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man and when Adam had slept, it was God who performed the surgery, took one of his ribs, closed up the flesh, made a woman from the rib He had taken from the man and brought the woman to the man. The first time Adam interacted with the beautiful creation God had made (the woman) was in Genesis 2:23, when he sighted her and by divine recognition, he knew by revelation knowledge and said “…This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man.” Then God said, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” God designed that the man and his wife will live together in peace and harmony.
God never intended for a man and his wife to be at loggerheads. God intended for them to live in harmony, so Jesus told them, “Moses told you to issue a certificate of divorce to your wives because of the hardness of your hearts.” Moses spoke to them the way he did because of the hardness of their hearts. Listen, as God’s child, you need to be open and yielded to God so you can hear Him speak to you plainly. Don’t get into crookedness of heart and carnality such that God cannot say certain things to you; such that He cannot speak to you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, babes in Christ. Peradventure there is a tussle between your will and the will of God, that is not a battle you want to win. Let God’s will prevail in your life. You will forever be safe following God; but if a man goes where the Lord hasn’t sent him or does what God has not commanded, he will lack divine backing. That is why you must follow God and be yielded to Him, because God only backs what He approves of or commissions. If there is any controversy or crisis in marriage, no matter what it is, go back to Genesis; go back to the beginning and discover God’s original plan and align with it. Peradventure you have missed it in marriage, or you’ve deviated from God’s original intent for marriage, I prophesy to you that from henceforth, there will be a realignment in your life in the Name of Jesus. You are blessed in Jesus Name.
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I declare that I walk in the perfect will of God for me concerning marriage! I enjoy the fullness of God in marriage!!!
