 Many of our sisters are quite often in a mad haste because of their fear for menopause. The God of Sarah has not changed. He remains our God today and forever. There is this sister in South Africa whose marriage was published in a South African news paper - Daily Sun-Tuesday 18 July 2006, that I will like us to share:

“DULISULE GUMEDE is 69 years old….and has been waiting for love all her life. She even kept herself a virgin, waiting for the right man. Now she has Mpandeni Mbanjwa by her side and she gratefully gives thanks to God. Wearing a traditional white wedding dress, Dumisile finally tied the knot, north of Durban last Sunday. She believes good things come to those who wait, and she waited for nearly seven decades. The deeply spiritual woman from Matikulu, northern Kwazulu Natal, has married Mpandeni. Bride and groom are almost the sameage.

Both are staunch Christians who pride themselves on relying on prayer to fulfill their needs. Dumsili says this is her first relationship. It first started recently she says, after God revealed to her that she should open her heart to Mpandeni, who had lost his wife. “God told me that Mpandeni was my other half’, the happy bride said. The couple were married at shaka’s Kraal Cultural Centre.”


 If you had seen the picture of this sister (DULISULE GUMEDE) even though in black and white, you would realise that at close to 70 years, she had the appearance of a young, healthy fresh looking and strong woman. You need to have seen this picture in the colour form.

Those still with worldly uncircumcised hearts will ask: Will she be able to put to birth? As if the God of Sarah has changed. Other will ask: when will they have children and be able to bring them up? As if they are the ones who provide and bring children up and not God. When will they enjoy life and sex?

-That helper with a broken and repentant heart, who will not  sleep when she falls into sin until God assures her of restoration.

-That helper who has gotten a deep revelation  on the point that the failure of  the husband is hers, and his success  hers. And that if the husband  fails and is going to hell, she too will follow for having failed in her task before God as a good helper. So his going to hell is hers, as well as his going to heaven will equally be hers.

-That  helper who will see the family of the husband as hers.

Secondary complimentary issues.

-Father, you formed the woman out of the rib of the man and brought her  to the man who confirmed saying: Here is one of my own kind’ bone taken from my bone, and flesh from my flesh” Genesis 2:21-22.

-Therefore, Father, give me a real helper identical to me in all aspect since she is one of my ribs, and therefore, must be identical to the other ribs, so as  to get in and fit.

-Heavenly father, I receive therefore from you, that identical part of mine destined before the foundation of the world with:

-The same spiritual unity in terms of emotions and character, irrespective of color, race etc…

-Father, you best know her and you best know me. We can’t better identify our real ‘half’ but you can the best. So do it for your glory and honor because all that you do is perfect. You are not the God of imperfection and will never be one. You can never yoke two different parts together.  A rib can never fit into where it was never removed.

So Dad, I beg you to fit exactly that rib, that you removed from me, back into its place. Yes, that helping part of mine-my woman-wife.  Open my mind to discern in your direction.  Give us the spiritual eyes to see each other move into each other to be one and indivisible until death.

-Father, I thank you for her and I receive her, waiting for materialization from the invisible to the visible according to you right timing.

In the name of Jesus.

Amen

After such a  prayer,  you  get into spiritual rest, and keep  being busy with what the LORD  has assigned you  to do, knowing that at his right appropriate moment, He will give you  that suitable helper according to his perfect  will.  We must be very conscious on the point that,  we  must be very patient  His  prayer request to the Lord for a helper therefore, is just reflecting  precautions as to the choice  of helper capable of really assisting  him accomplish  his divine  task.

So when you present something like this to the Lord,  when he brings him or her , you will have no doubt. The only think you do now is to be patient and observant. If you see any trying to suit these desires that you have raise to him according to his will, you approach. Don’t be ashamed if you are a sister, to take a step towards the man. If in either case you approach and he or she  seems not to give in, don’t worry. Withdraw and keep patient.

 The Lord will bring that one at his appointed timing and it will work for God’s Glory. You will be a wonderful couple that you never imagine waxing strong in the vineyard of God for his glory and he will bless with all the secondary necessity to make very sweet the marriage. He will  put in your heart for one another his own very  beauty or handsomeness in the eyes of one another that you never saw from the beginning. So we must trust God than trying to think we are intelligent.

As conclusion based on my own experience, I will want to be candied  that, the choice of a life partner is something fundamental to be handled with a lot of precautions. In my book: “What God is saying about sex”, how to proceed in the choice of a life partner as to assure a stable successful marriage as well as keeping the marriage flames burning, has been well exhausted.

But again let me add importantly that,  whether we have children or not, married or not, is not fundamental as Paul exhorts in 1st Corinth.7:26-38. If he wants us to, okay! If he doesn’t, okay!  We just have to praise and thank him in whatever he wants for our lives, and keep busy with that which he wants us to do in the building of his kingdom. We don’t have much time here as to be focused on that which will end here.

 So, I thank you for having read through, and certainly by the grace of  God, you must have understood  one or two helpful  things dear brothers are sisters in Christ, that will help you orientate your prayer request for marriage  unto the Lord. With this example, may the Lord guide you as you reflect using it to  inspire your own prayer request.


                WHAT  OF DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE ?

                    

A brother  came  brandishing   the  scriptural text of  Matthew 19:9 , saying:  I caught my wife pant down  in adultery , the Lord authorizes me todivorce  her, she most go!!! 

http://bookstore.iuniverse.com/…/Imminent-End-of-the-World.…? 

To begin with,This natural image below tries in one way or the other, to show us how God intended marriage to be. “The two shall become one... What therefore God has joined together, Let not man put asunder” (Mathew 19: 2 -12). Only death can do them apart.

To separate these two trees yoked together, will mean to destroy the two, because there is no way you will have to safely cut one and remove without hurting the other, and that is how the divorce of two persons yoked in marriage is. When you look at these two trees, you will understand that they are not death but living trees and that is why they are firmly yoked in each other.

But if one of them naturally dies from the roots, up to the stem, and branches, it will automatically dry off, broke and be separated from the other and therefore setting it free.


IS  DIVORCE AND RE-MARRIAGE PERMITTED ?

                              NO!!!  AND  YES!!

                                  1°- NO !!!

This question  may  sound strange to many, especially today  when people can  claim to get married in the morning and divorce in the evening. This  evil  practice  in the name of marriage, with divorce and remarriage from one person to the other at will as if,   God was our  play boy, that we have to mock every time.  Raising our hands before his throne, and  swearing to marry  “for better or for worse”, and again breaking it to remarry and make another vow, is mocking God.

This  is  professional prostitution, and  a master piece of Satan,  that has nothing to do with  the real living God.  All  practitioners  of such, will go to hell if they do not repent.

        ‘... What  therefore God has joined together, Let not man put asunder…’

The Bible says:

-« And Pharisees came up and in order to test him asked, ‘‘is it Lawful for a man to divorce his wife?’’  He answered them what   did    Moses Command you? They said « Moses   gave permission for a   man to write a divorce letter and send his wife away notice and send away his wife. Jesus said, ‘‘for your hardness of hearts he wrote you this commandment.  But from the beginning of creation God made them male and female;  For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife  and the two shall become one in flesh, so they are no longer two but one flesh.

What therefore God has joined together, Let not man put asunder’’ ...Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her, and if she divorces her husband and marries another she commits   adultery.  (Mathew 19: 2 -12)

               What  then  of  “….Except   on   the   ground   of    unchastity…’’    

                 
The Bible says,  “But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of unchastity, makes her an adulteress. » Mathew 5:32.

And the same Bible equally says: « anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart » (Mathew 5: 27 -28).  Therefore adultery does not only apply to materialised physical sex,   but also “whoever looks at a woman lustfully”. Who is that man, who has never looked at a woman lustfully to say, I am divorcing my wife because she has committed adultery? Please we should not be   hypocrites!

No body could throw a stone against the adulterous woman, because non-was pure from this act. The   Lord Jesus Christ said:

“Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her”.  And once more he bent down and  writes on the ground. But when they heard it, they went away, one by one,  beginning with the eldest; and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus looked up and said to her; woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?  She said no one, Lord” And Jesus said “Neither do I condemn   you; go, and   do not   sin   again” John 8: 4-11.

You that man, who says the Bible permits divorce in the case of unfaithfulness or   adultery of a woman,  and so we can apply  it, have you never looked at a woman lustfully? Have you forgiven her   490 times?   The bible says,:

“ Lord, if   my brother keeps on sinning   against   me, how many times do I have to forgive him? Seven times?  » ‘‘No not seven times,’’ answered Jesus, ‘‘but seven times seventy because the kingdom of heaven is like this’’ » (Mathew 18: 21 - 23).

If   you have never looked at a woman lustfully, and have forgiven your wife 490 times,  and think  that you  should divorce her because she is committing adultery , even though she still want to stay with you, you can go ahead and divorce her, but knowing fully well that, you cannot remarry  another, or  else reconcile with her. This because, even though the bible talks of  divorce   ‘‘except on the ground of  unchastity’’ ,  it does not make mention any where of remarriage, but instead says:    

-‘‘ To   the married I give charge, not I but the Lord, that the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, let her remain single or else be reconciled to her husband) and that the husband should not divorce his wife » 1st Corinthians 7:10-11.

Equally the husband should not separate from his wife, but if  he does, let him remain single or else be reconciled to her .  ‘‘ Separate’’  is  used here  for the woman because, she could not by Legislation issue a letter of divorce to the husband.  So we still emphasize  that, if you can forgive her  limitlessly as she desires still to be with you, then the better, for the bible says,

“So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the laws of liberty.  For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy; yet mercy triumphs over judgment”
James 2: 12.

For who knows if something miraculous may  happen, and she sincerely repents ?  But  if    she continues and end in the lake of   fire, then you would have done all you   could, and have a clear conscience before God, as He too has done everything to us, to be clear in conscience if we wilfully choose   to go to hell. For the bible says:

‘‘ Wife how do you know whether   you   will save your husband? Husband   how do you know whether your will save   your    wife?  »  (1st Corinthians 7: 12 - 16). 

Therefore, divorced believers (authentic members of the body of Christ living by the entire word of God),  cannot by the command of the LORD, contract a new alliance (remarriage) with another believer. For this  will be a terrible abomination before the Lord, especially  if the other (divorced partner), is still alive and in Christ.  If therefore, any member of the body of Christ divorce, whether  on the basis of adultery or  not, he or she must stay single without  thoughts of remarrying .

If the partner wants to remarry, let he or she go and reconcile with the other, or else will be breaking his alliance with the entire body of Christ , and thus lost his membership in the body of Christ; and qualify for hell.


                               2°- YES!!!


          When can remarriage of  a  believer  take  place  ?


But on the contrary, if one of the partner loses faith in the LORD (leaves the body of Christ and thus is no longer member of the body), or is an unbeliever and decides to abandoned or divorce the authentic believer, and goes to continue living a pagan life in perpetual adultery as single or remarried, the believer is not ‘‘ bound’’, and so can remarry.
 The Bible says:

- ‘‘To the   rest I say not the Lord, that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she conceits to live with him, he should not divorce her. If any woman has a husband   who is an unbeliever, and he consents to live with her, she should not divorce him, for the unbelieving husband is   made acceptable to God by being united to his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made acceptable to God by being united to her  Christian husband .If  this was not so, their children would be like pagan children, but as   it    is, they are acceptable to God. However if   the one   who is not a believer wishes to leave the Christian partner, whether husband or wife, is not bound,   for God   has called us to   peace. Wife how do you know whether   you   will save your husband? Husband   how do you know whether your will save   you    wife?  1st Corinthians 7: 12 – 16..

Does  ‘‘is not  bound’’ in this case imply  the other   partner  is   free to  remarry  ? 

The Bible says :

-‘‘ A   married   woman  is   bound   by law to her husband as long as he lives, but if her husband dies she is discharged from the law concerning the Husband. Accordingly she will be called an adulteress if she lives with another man while her husband is alive. But if her husband dies she is free from that Law; and if   she marries another man she is not   an   adulteress » (Romans 7: 2 - 3).

-“A  wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives. If  the husband dies she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the lord.  But in my judgement she is happier if she remains as she is »(I Corinthians 7: 39 - 40).

The above texts indicates that only death can bring an end to a marriage for  re-marriage.
But biblically too,  it is very clear that continues deliberate  sinning leads to  spiritual death, which leads to physical death that can be immediate or later . There   is no sin that God cannot forgive, but  if  I have abandon or divorce my believing partner  to  go and  consciously  be  engaged in perpetual adultery after  spiritual  knowledge  of  the  “truth”,   then   I am   committing a   sin unto   death, as the bible says:
   

- ‘‘ If any one sees his brother committing what is not a mortal sin, he will ask, and God will give him life for those whose sin is not mortal. There is sin which is mortal,  I do not say    that one is  to pray for that. ’’ 1st Jean 5:16-17.  

 
- “Therefore, I tell   you, every sin and blasphemy against   the spirit   will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven” Matthew 12:32   

   
-‘‘ For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who have once been enlightened , who have once tested the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit , and have tested the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come, if they then commit apostasy, since they crucify the son of God on their own account and hold Him up to contempt.’’ Hebrew 6:4-7

- ‘‘…whereas she who is self-indulgent is dead even while she lives’’ 1st Timothy 5:6-7

From a clear understanding of these texts, why  then will the believing partner not remarry, if  the partner who left is in the above situation?  Yes!  The other can remarry only in the Lord, since the ‘‘ unbelieving partner’’ is already spiritually separated from God, which implies spiritual death and consequently leading to physical death  later.

The fundamental question here is not who caused the other to leave (egoism, indifference, quarrelling , adultery  et cetera), but that of  perpetual   adultery, by the one who left or divorced. The believing partner who  is  innocent of  divorce, is free from guilt(not bound), and therefore can remarry.

In the Old Testament adulterers were killed, which was an automatic liberation of the other partner to remarry.   In the New Testament there is room for forgiveness; but if it becomes sin unto death, which means the other is already   dead   even though physically alive,  and forbidden not to be prayed for,  the other is free to remarry.   Even in the permissive will of God, allowing Moses to permit divorce because of the hardness of the hearts, He however made it clear that all sexual acts of a divorce woman were defilement.   The Bible says:

« If she goes and becomes another man’s wife, and the latter husband  dislikes her and writes her a bill  of   divorce and puts it in her hand sends her out of  his house, or if  the latter husband dies, who took  her to be his wife, then her former husband, who sent her away, may not take her again to  be his wife,  after she had been defiled; for that is an abomination before the Lord”  Deuteronomy 24: 2-3.     

So even though God tolerated it, it all the same remains defilement. It remains the same today, unless there is authentic confession and repentance.

Therefore, if such has  committed a sin unto death, and is living in perpetual adultery, then equally this command of the Lord becomes effective: “ And I say to you; whoever divorces  his wife except for unchastity,  and marries another, commits adultery” Matthew 19:9.

By the normal understanding of this text, a man could divorce his wife and remarry if  she committed adultery.  But we had earlier mentioned that, a man must examined to see that he himself doesn’t commit adultery, and has forgiven her 490times. An   equally that the other is not still willing to stay with him.

But if this one(man or woman), who has known the lord and turned back to the world, is the one who has abandoned the believing partner and sought for divorce to be living in perpetual adultery,  and  God put he/she on the bench of  SIN UNTO DEATH, I don’t see how we can still be yoking the life child of God to a corpse on the basis that the other is still physically alive. There is no scriptural basis on which this can be spiritually correct, if we are really led by the Holy Spirit to apply the written word(Logos).

If it was that physical death comes first to spiritual death then one will understand. This  Meaning therefore that, until a person first die physically, before he becomes spiritually death separated from God.

If it was so, then it will mean that if a man commit a sin unto death, he must first physically die, before spiritual death can follow.  In this case, yes, no remarrying for a person whose partner has committed a sin unto death.

But if it  is the reverse, that spiritual death comes first to physical death, then believe me by the spirit of the Lord that we will be sinning-yoking God’s life child, to a  living corpse he has declared as such, and command us not to pray for. At the mere human level, can you as a life person get into a coven and lie inside with a corpse? I don’t see who on earth can do such a thing, even a made mad man will not.

Equally, to be yoking God’s life Child through a moral conception of the scriptures, unto a corpse that God has commanded not to be prayed for, is tempting that one  to pray with the wish of seeing his spiritually death partner, return to the Lord for them to be together again. We  know how strong the desires of this mortal body are!

 I love that, we should take time before each case differently before the Lord, and handle it with him(sorting out cases of sin unto death), so as not to ignorantly be sinning before God in applying the written letters without the leadership of the Holy Spirit, and condemning God’s life children to corpses. Therefore, we must be careful not to  apply the written letter without the spirit which consequently brings death as the bible says:

 ”It is he who made us capable of serving the new covenant which consists not of a written Law but the spirit. The written La brings death, but the spirit gives life” 2nd Corinthian 3:5-6.

Therefore, the following questions must ponder us:

If he or she is already death and eternally  separated from the Lord, and so his biology existence makes no difference before the Lord, how possible therefore can he still be  yoked to the spiritually living partner  still in the  Lord?

If death is what nullifies a marriage, and this one is spiritually death, which is what is essential before God and not the biological physical death, is his marriage alliance with the other not automatically nullified? And if it is, why then can the partner living in Christ not free to remarry?

How can  God yoke his  life child to that which he has declared   a corpse ? Impossible! Can you withstand the smell of a corpse ? To then think that God can take his living child and yoke to a corpse, is to be mistaken indeed!

When God says death, he means death and we see that, that which is fundamental  before Him is spiritual  death and not really physical death because we all must physically die.

Therefore, this is how this text must be briefly understood : 

A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to marry anyone she wishes, but he must belong to the Lord” 1 Cor 7:39-40.

This is how this text must be understood:

In the perfect will of God, as a man leaves his parents  to join his wife to  be one, they shall be so until death(Genesis 2:24). God hates divorce(Malachi 2:13-16).

But since man has fallen and the power of sins is upon him and this role is tempered upon :

    1) If the woman or man leaves his Christian wife, he or she shall remain so without getting married, else reconciled for they are all of the same body.

    2) If  one of them is guilty of sexual immorality then the other is free to divorce, but certainly if only he or she is not guilty of immorality in sight, action etc! And equally if he has fulfill the Law of forgiving 490 times. If he qualifies then he can divorce and remarry because in the old Testament, it so, and the husband wasn’t allowed to marry her again if  she did come back. So, is same word of God and spirit of God continuing.

    3) If the  unbelieving or believing partner seeks for divorce and leaves,  and goes and is living in perpetual immorality  either married or single, and the believing seeks the  Rhema of the Lord that, that one has committed a sin unto death and so can’t be prayed for and  that he or she is not bound and can remarry, then he goes ahead and remarry.

To hear the Rhema of God is very, very important else Letters will kill especially on this topic as is doing with many already( Spirit vivifies and letters kills...2nd Corinth 3:4-6).

There are many honest children of God that interpretations of the letters are killing  on this subject. They have been tied by their leaders under the Law of the letters in wrong interpretation of this text without the Holy Spirit and are suffering under the Laws of works sinning in their thoughts and even actions. Since according to the Law of the spirit  they might have been set free and can remarry but they are not. According to God they are supposed to remarry but because, they burn in passion under the law of works that will lead them to death.

So teachers of the word must be very, very careful as James 3:1, says because by thinking that they are doing the right thing may instead lead souls to hell. We must understand that since man sinned, marriage became  purely carnal and ends here. That is why you could see that God tolerated polygamy in the Old Testament, and today, people getting married  after fornication as they repent which in God's original plan wasn't supposed to be so. Normally in strictly God's perfect will, every one must have gone  back to get married to the first person you had sex with, because that is the real sense of the word marriage according to God.

I read many other  inspirations of  inspired Teachers of the word like Watch man Nee, Prince Derick whose  second wife was a divorcee under the 2nd point.  God was the one who connected the two together for remarriage. I read his book on how it all happened and it went in light with what the Rhema of the Lord had ministered to me.

So, if you are a leader of the sheep, and are keeping sheep bound under the Law of works for hell on this matter, set them free.


Conclusion

Therefore, as  conclusion we are saying that, the most important thing is that, the believing partner must not be the one engaging the Divorce. The Bible says:

‘‘ …To the   rest I say not the Lord, that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever,  and she conceits to live with him, he should not divorce her. If any woman has a husband    who is an   unbeliever, (or believer who commits adultery)  and he consents to live with   her, she should not divorce him, for the unbelieving husband is made   acceptable to God  by being united to his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made acceptable to God by being united to her Christian husband .If   this was not so, their children would be like pagan children, but as  it  is, they are acceptable to God” 1st Corinthians 7:12-15.

If he initiates the divorce, he cannot remarry, because God calls us to forgive 490times, showing us the limitlessness of  forgiveness, as he also has forgiven us and is still forgiving us daily. At this level, we can say with divine conviction that any re-marriage of already united partners is only   authorised   in case of  the death ( spiritual or  physical) of one of them else we will  be committing adultery.  Anything  apart from   this is from the   Devil .

Therefore, so long as we are children of God and  our partner is still alive, even if we are not living together, whether in a state of   madness, sickness, imprisonment, poverty , divorced; and still a member of  the body of  Christ(spiritually alive)  as our self, not on the bench of sin unto death,   we  have no right to remarry. Being all spiritually alive in the body of Christ, only physical death can separate us. Paul was writing his letter to children of God spiritually alive in Christ, and yoked together by marriage in the Lord. That is why he goes further to say” ...but if her husband  dies, she is free to be married to any man she wishes, but only if he is a Christian”  1st Corinthians 7:39.

Yes, two believers in Christ cannot divorce and remarry . This is because  the bible says: “.... You are a  husband of blood to me » (Exodus 4: 24 - 26). How   can a husband of   blood to a wife or vice versa be separated? All these boil down to this   solemn   will of   God:

-« You ask   why   he no longer accepts them.  It is because he knows you have broken your promise to the wife you married when you were young. She was your partner and you have broken your promise to her, although you promised before God that you would be   faithful to her. Didn’t God make you one body and spirit with her?   What was   his purpose in   this?  It was that you should have children who are truly God’s people."

So make sure that none of   you   break his   promise   to his wife.

‘I hate   divorce’’ says the Lord God   of   Israel ‘‘I hate it   when    one of you does such a cruel thing to his wife’’. Make   sure   that you   do   not   break   your   promise   to be   faithful to your wife »   Malachi 2: 15-16.

We can sum up here with these words of Apostle Paul.

-« Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?   Do not be deceived; neither, nor adulterers, nor sexual perverts will inherit   the   kingdom   of    God » (I Corinthians 6: 9 - 11).
