  • Moses killed an Egyptian and hid his body in the sand. But God still used him to lead His people (Israel). However, when Moses was told to speak to a rock to make water, he disobeyed and hit the rock; for that God killed him before he could reach the promised land. ( Ex. 17:6, Num. 20:7-11, Deut. 34:4). I would have thought the worst thing in Moses life was when he murdered the Egyptian. But In Gods eyes the thing that deserved death was when Moses messed up the picture God was building for a people to see 2,000 yrs in the future. <br /> 1 Corinthians 10:2 <br /> And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; <br /> 1 Corinthians 10:4 <br /> And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. (Deut. 32:31) <br /> Christ was smitten once to give us the water of life. When Moses hit the rock the second time it broke the picture. <br /> The Picture should have been: <br /> Ex. 17:6 Moses hit the Rock= Christ died once Heb. 10:14 <br /> Num. 20:8 Moses speak to the rock the second time= With the mouth confession is made unto salvation Rom. 10:10. <br /> This is just one example to show how serious God is about things that picture eternal truths. <br />
  •  2 Corinthians 11:12 <br /> But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we. <br /> Ephesians 5:25 <br /> Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; <br /> Ephesians 5:32 <br /> This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. <br /> Matthew 19:4-9 <br /> And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 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. 9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. <br /> <br />

Marriage divorce remarriage Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Marriage/Divorce/Remarriage
  • 2. • To understand a difficult subject in the bible it is best to start with the easiest to understand passages, then move into the more difficult. • There is one complete chapter in 1Cor. that deals only with this subject. • In 40verses of 1 Cor. 7 Paul gives us 8 steps to follow:
  • 3. 1). Stay single • 1 Corinthians 7:7-8 • Matthew 19:12 • 1 Corinthians 7:32
  • 4. 2). Marry if you cannot contain the desire 1 Corinthians 7:9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. • The word 'burn' means a strong desire- Romans 1:27 burned in their lust one toward another;
  • 5. 3). After marriage don't depart • 1 Corinthians 7:10 • Matthew 19:8
  • 6. 4). Let the unsaved spouse divorce not the saved • 1 Corinthians 7:13 • 1 Corinthians 7:15-16 • 1 Peter 3:1-2 • 2 Corinthians 5:11
  • 7. 5). If divorced stay single 1 Corinthians 7:27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife. • If the unsaved spouse divorces, start back at point #1. Your "seeking" should not be for a spouse Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
  • 8. 5). If divorced stay single If God wants to bless you with a spouse it will be in the process of seeking the kingdom of God. • Psalms 84:11 no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. Proverbs 18:22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.
  • 9. 6). It is not sin to remarry 1 Corinthians 7:28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. • If the unsaved spouse leaves, and God wants to bless you with a new spouse, it is not sin to remarry. Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
  • 10. 7). If you remarry, only marry an equally minded Christian 1 Corinthians 7:39 ....at liberty to be married ...only in the Lord. 2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
  • 11. 8). A second marriage will have problems 1 Corinthians 7:28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you.
  • 12. Reasons for remarriage: Death- Rom. 7:2-3 Divorce- 1 Cor. 7:15 Fornication- Mat. 19:9,5:32
  • 13. Letter of the Law vs spirit of the Law Romans 7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter. • Jesus compares both in Mat. 5 but, even here he draws the line at fornication.
  • 14. Matthew 5 OT Law • Vs21 thou shalt not kill NT spirit of Law: Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment
  • 15. Matthew 5 OT Law • Vs 27 shalt not commit adultery NT spirit of Law: Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
  • 16. Matthew 5 OT Law • Vs 31 if you want to put away a wife give her a writing of divorcement NT spirit of Law: Matthew 5:32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
  • 17. Fornication • When Jesus is questioned by the Pharisees about divorce (Mat.19) he is talking to men who know the law. He tells them the things Moses allowed in the OT are contrary to the spirit of the law; With one exception (Mat. 19:9) fornication- an unfaithful spouse. • To understand how this differs from the OT we need to see the laws for divorce in the OT.
  • 18. Laws for divorce in the OT • Deut. 24:1 If a mans wife is no longer pleasing in his eyes he can divorce • Deut. 22:17-21 Kill a bride if she cant prove she is a virgin. • Deut. 24:3 If husband hate her he can divorce
  • 19. Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for EVERY CAUSE The Pharisees are asking Jesus in Mat. 19:3 Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for EVERY CAUSE (any reason he wants). Jesus answers the only acceptable cause is fornication (Mat. 19:9)
  • 20. Why is fornication an acceptable reason for divorce? • The answer is because of what marriage pictures. Earthly things are a picture of Heavenly (2 Cor. 4:18).
  • 21. Now see what marriage pictures in the Bible 1 Corinthians 6:14-18
  • 22. 2 Corinthians 11:12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we. Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; Ephesians 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
  • 23. Matthew 19:4-9 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
  • 24. 7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 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. 9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
  • 25. God=head of all Husband=Christ Wife=Church
  • 26. An interesting point: In the Bible the man is the only one given the power to "give a writing of divorcement". In 1 Cor. 7 we see the wife "depart" but not give a writing of divorcement. I think the reason for this is in the OT God has a bride (Israel) and he divorces her (Hos. 9:1, 2:2-3) then remarries her (reference to the Millennium).
