This is not going to be a lengthy article. There is no need to beat around the bush and compromise a rather serious subject. These are the last days and people need to get their souls right before it’s too late.
Concerning the topic of divorce and remarriage, those who rely on extra-biblical sources, commentaries and the opinions of theologians, do themselves a disservice and place themselves in eternal jeopardy. The scriptures are plain. What is said in the Word of God cannot be altered by popular opinion. Many act as if they are unable to understand the topic of divorce so they seek out teachers because they want to be soothed in their sin.
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Timothy 4:3-4).
The fact of the matter is that their conscience is continually convicted when the topic of divorce comes up so they seek out teachers that’ll justify their transgression. I know people today that are living in adultery and have yet to repent of their willful disobedience. It’s a perpetual inward hell they live in only to be finalized externally on the Day of Judgment. Then, when it’s too late they will find out that their “teachers” have deceived them all along. Let us look into the Word of God for instruction and commandment. Listen to the Words of Lord Jesus Christ on the topic of divorce and remarriage.
“Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.” (Luke 16:18).
Whosoever means Whosoever. ANYONE. ANY PERSON. ANY MAN, ANY WOMAN. The Words in Red have spoken. If one chooses to defy the Words of the Lord Jesus Christ, they will ultimately and eventually suffer the ramification of their willful disobedience.
“For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.” (Hebrews 10:26-27).
Your sin soothing teacher will not be your mediator before you and a Holy God on the day of Judgment. Your sobbing claim of a “lack of understanding” of the Holy Scriptures will not bail you out. You have despised the Words of a Holy God and his Son, Jesus Christ. For that, there is a justifiable penalty.
“Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.” (Proverbs 13:13).
Fear God and keep his commandments. (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
And from the Words of the Apostle Paul, a man chosen by God to preach to the Gentiles, listen closely: “The 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.” (1 Corinthians 7:39).
