    Lol, well call me crazy but somehow I don't see fights leading to divorce over the cooking being that far fetched.

    The Teachers of the Law used the same interpretation of that verse that you posted, so they could divorce for any reason they wanted to. But that is not what it says. It is talking about if one of the marriage partners become unclean in the eyes of God under the law, then they can divorce. Only if uncleanness is found, divorce is allowed. But it was being perverted to allow for any reason. Jesus was exposing their application of that verse for the lie it was and was bring it back to how it was intended all along. That Divorce was permitted only when Uncleanness had been found by God's standard in his Holy word. Going to bed, but if you respond tonight, I will happily respond tomorrow after I get up. God bless you.

    No, he is not. The phrase above " displeasing to him " comes from a Hebrew word that means uncleanness. It's not saying that if he just randomly decides she displeased him, then he can divorce her but if she becomes unclean in the eyes of the Law.

    All the Law was given by Moses. That's why it's called the Law of Moses. It doesn't change who the Author of the Law was which is God. The punishment under the Law for teaching falsely or lies in the name of God was Death. If Jesus was teaching that all the teaching about Divorce was null and void then he would have been called a false teacher and stoned to death.
  6. Matthew 5:31-32 (NKJV) “Furthermore it has been said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except [a]sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery, and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery. I've been praying and seeking God on the issue of Divorce and remarriage and realized a few things I would like some feedback on. I will try to keep this as short as possible but don't know if I can. Context: Jesus is speaking to Jews about the Law of Moses. If he said anything that contradicted the Law or nullified it, then Jesus would have been stoned to death, Because Jesus was viewed as a man, not as God. Jesus was clarifying how divorce should have been viewed in light of all of scripture. It was impossible for him to nullify divorce completely and not get stoned. Notes: The following things are a list of things NOT apart of a conversation about divorce in most conditions under the Law of Moses. Reasons will be given as to why. Adultery: was not a divorce conversation but a death penalty conversation. Pre-marital sex: Death Penalty conversation Incest: Death penalty conversation Prostitution: Death penalty conversation When the things above happened in the days of the bible people didn't go looking for a divorce. They picked up stones to execute the Death penalty GOD required for committing these sins. These sins are so bad in the eyes of GOD that when they happened it not only ended the marriage but the life of the persons who committed the sin. When people of this day thought of divorce the things above were not reasons or even in there thinking when it comes to divorce because they already had a consequence that allowed them to remarry, the death penalty. Divorce: Almost every possible meaning of fornication already had a consequence under the Law of Moses as you can see above, and it wasn't divorce but the Death penalty. God holds Marriage to be sacred but people were getting divorced for any all reasons the could. Jesus clarifies that if someone wants to get a divorce then the only way it should be allowed is if they committed a sexual sin worthy of death. Because under the law if any of these sins were committed they should be executed anyway. If mercy was shown and they were not executed then divorce was still permissible. Summary: the only allowable reason for divorce and remarriage is if one of the spouses commit a sin worthy of death under the law of Moses. I would enjoy hearing some feedback on this. Thank you for your time. Joseph

    The People of the prince to come

    well, I believe the Psalm 83 war must take place first but beyond that, I'm not sure it is locked into one spot in the bible. The link to the article in my op provides a lot of facts I have never heard and was curious if their facts could be refuted. It's long but a good read.

    The People of the prince to come

    If you would take the time to read the article at the link, I think you would receive a nice surprise as to what it says.
  9. I have always believed this is what the bible is saying when talking about being turned over to a reprobate mind. Loving sin so much you reject God's call for repentance over and over until God stops calling you to repentance and leaves you to your sin. I could be wrong but this is what I always thought it was talking about.

    Did I just recieve the gift of tongues?

    Anything biblical can be misused and faked and used to lie and mislead. I have spoken the truth but decide for yourself if I have.

    tongues

    It is about a relationship with God the Father and Jesus Christ. Pour out to God the concerns of your heart and draw closer to him. You are loved and cherished by God. Turn to Jesus for your peace of mind and Joy and then nobody will be able to take it from you. Let your Focus be on Jesus and him alone, and he through the Holy Spirit will equip you with whatever gifts you need.

    This is my post on another thread on the same topic. This is the experience I was referring to. People have different experiences with God. My Mom for example in one church service when we lived in Alaska during the altar call went to pray. The Holy Spirit fell on her very hard and she began to speak in tongues. ( not all that uncommon for her back then ). She didn't understand anything she said. Over a short period of time, everyone else stopped praying and all you could hear was my mom. It didn't sound like what she said made any sense. Many would say it sounded like jibberish. After a little bit, she got done praying, got up from the Altar and went back to her seat. No interpretation was given. Then after the service was completely over as she was leaving she was approached by a family. The oldest member of the family, an elderly woman, began speaking to my mom but not in English. My mom tried to explain she couldn't understand anything this woman was saying. Then one of the other people begun to explain to my mom what happened. The elderly Woman only spoke the Eskimo language native to her people. When the Spirit of God come upon my mom she had begun to speak about Jesus Christ and all the wonderful things about him in this Eskimo language. This woman thought my mom must speak the language. After a minute everything was explained to the woman, whom just wanted to be in the house of God. The only church for her to come to was ours, as she was far from home visiting family. This story is 100% true. We never know what someone else might have experienced with God. To my mom, it was just praying in tongues as she had done countless times before. To this other woman, it was a touch from God. We just don't know, which is why I try to advise to be cautious with this subject. Just because it may sound like jibberish to some, doesn't mean it is. I apologize to you if I upset you with my response. God bless

    I would like to see this proven in scripture, please.

    With all due respect, it's not about being correct or incorrect but seeking God's truth. There has always been both in the old testament and the new testament divine utterance when God's Holy Spirit come upon someone. Even with temples made with the hands of men, there was an overflow or outward manifestation when his Holy Spirit filled it. I've seen and heard tongues used in the biblical manner described in Acts to glorify God and tell others about Jesus Christ. I've seen it. So it's simple. Either I'm a lair or it is for today.
