To the married I give this charge (not I, but the Lord): the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband), and the husband should not divorce his wife. 1 Corinthians 7:10
Marriage.. The most important establishment and bond ever made by God. The bond given to a man and woman was to replicate God’s love for his people. As you know God’s people have more than one time cheated on God and yet God still takes them back. We as a people especially God’s chruch should understand that God’s relationship has never been easy with us but at the end of revelation a marriage still takes place with his people and his Son, the lamb and because of this marriage God granted all things from the lamb to the his kingdom through the lambs blood sacrifice. So I ask you.. How and why are you divorcing? It is not the will of God that you divorce and even when you do it is only a legal matter not spiritual. For in God’s mind you are still married because you and your spouse have joined to become one flesh. This is not reversed as no scripture even hints to this. Only during death does scripture release the title of that husband and or wife. Divorce is granted through sexual immorality but again that devoice is only granted legally. In God’s eyes you are still one flesh with the person you have that blood conventant with. Which brings me to another point. A marriage is established through blood. This is the purpose of the bleeding of the cervix of a virgin. That blood represents the shedding of blood of our Christ which ended the Old Covenant ant and started a New Covenant. That is what a marriage is founded on and is the reason why sex before marriage shouldn’t be done because it creates covenants. Whoever you bled on or who bled on you is who you have your covenant with. There were no priest, pastors and no rings. In fact for Jewish law, the ring that is given to the woman is suppose to be the circumcision scar ring left behind when the foreskin was removed. Think about it, both women and men. Somewhere out there is your true husband and first wife. It’s a very scary thing when you think about it. Unfairly in most people’s mind, a man can have multiple wives, God allowed such, but a woman can not. She also can’t shed blood from her cervix again, which is why the bed sheet blood stain was so needed in the old days as proof that a marriage could stand. If there was no blood then the marriage would not hold as righteous unless the woman was a widow. When all is said and done God takes our marriage very seriously and we have gotten away from that especially in the church. Finding the right person to share your virginity and marriage with is very important. God will honor the marriage even if it’s the wrong person. You will be held to the same standards and rules. You can’t just quit because things aren’t going well because you established this covenant. So, staying a virgin until marriage is a foreign choice no longer practiced by the majority of the world, even among Christians. We have lost our way and we need to start with our children in teaching them the right way to live not enabling them to have sex safely instead because the world approves. If we don’t, we will never recover and a true marriage meaning will become lost forever. We are almost there now.
