This blog's title is Bible Verse To Remarry

Yet, like many other blogs, this one has been hijacked into an argument (I am not saying discussion) about the Sabbath.

Why do so many blogs keep getting hijacked from their stated purposes into forums for advancing pet doctrinal positions (Sabbath, creation days, alcohol use, KJV supremacy, or any other subject that keeps popping up frequently)?
---StrongAxe on 2/5/14


So MarkV then you admit that the day of worship you follow is not set by GOD. But by man.

You also do not believe what John Calvin taught in many sermons about the law and it's purposes. So by your words your are saying that Calvin is lost since we use his same arguments about keeping the Ten Commandments.

Are you saying that Paul is lost since he taught that the commandment are not done away with.

Rom 3:31
Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

Rom 7:7


Rom 7:22

For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
---Samuelb7 on 2/5/14


jerry6593:

You said: Axey: Samuel has a valid point. YOU are using a verse that says "don't judge about keeping the sabbath days" to judge us who keep THE TRUE Sabbath of God! How hypocritical!

This is simply not true. Show me a single post here where I have ever judged anyone for keeping the Sabbath. You want to keep it? All blessings to you!

What I HAVE repeatedly pointed out is that, beyond merely keeping the Sabbath, such people who ALSO JUDGE OTHERS for not keeping it, do so in error.
---StrongAxe on 2/5/14


Markie: "Everyone descendant of Adam without Christ is condemned already for breaking the written letter of the Law."

Then you now admit that the Law was in existence from the beginning of Creation? Progress!


"Those who go to Church on Sunday are not under any law."

Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the Law of God, neither indeed can be.



---jerry6593 on 2/5/14


Samuel, if you quote me, quote me correctly, you said,
"You say that Christians will go to church on the day appointed by GOD which is Sunday but could have been a Monday."
I never said that the Sunday was appointed by God. Please do not add to my statement. Sunday was done by man, and it could have been Monday. There is no law for those in Christ. The law is for the unrighteous, the ungodly. It has them condemned heading to hell.
"Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them" (Gal. 3:10)
By transgressing the law, man has righteously incurred its penalty and have fallen under its curse. Believers in Christ are not under the curse.
---Mark_V. on 2/5/14




Well MarkV you are saying we are lost by works. I was saved by Grace alone and still am.

You say that Christians will go to church on the day appointed by GOD which is Sunday but could have been a Monday.

The problem is that Sunday was never appointed in the Bible as a day of worship. The only day of worship is Sabbath which falls on Saturday.

Show me where the church receives a command from JESUS or the Apostles to worship on Sunday!

As for being under the law. Calvin wrote how that Christians are to obey the Ten Commandments. He did not consider it being under the law to not live in sin.
---Samuelbb7 on 2/4/14


Samuel, I don't remember ever telling you, you were saved while under the law. Everyone descendant of Adam without Christ is condemned already for breaking the written letter of the Law. They broke one, they broke all. Christ takes our condemnation upon Himself and pays the debt we owe. As believers we are no longer condemned.
If someone goes back under the Law, he was never saved to began with. For Christ sustains all believers. Keeping the Law for Saturday Sabbath is keeping the law given to Israel. Those who go to Church on Sunday are not under any law. If the day was changed to Monday, they would go to church on Monday without a problem, or any day of the week. It is no longer a law for those who are in Christ.
---Mark_V. on 2/4/14


Markie: "No one who is saved already wants to go under the Law after they have been freed by our Lord and Savior."

Is that what your bible says? My Bible says the Jesus came to save us from OUR SINS - not from THE LAW. Anyone who willfully sins is NOT SAVED. Oh, but you claim to have no will, so that your sin is God's fault, right? Perhaps that's why you translate God's command of "Remember the Sabbath Day" as "Forget the Sabbath Day".




---jerry6593 on 2/3/14


Dear Markv
You stated two contrary points. You stated that those like me are not condemned for keeping the Sabbath. 2/2/14 then on 2/3/14 you state that Jerry is going to hell for keeping Sabbath.

I have heard that old argument about not being under the written law. All but two the Ten Commandments are repeated in the New Testament close to verbatim. The Second is not repeated exactly, yet do you have statues of JESUS that you bow down too? I doubt it.

Calvin stated we are under the Ten Commandments as Christian. Look up His sermons on that topic. We are not is saved by law. The law defines sin.
Which of the other Ten Commandments do you teach we do not have to follow?

Only GOD will judge who is lost. Not my job.
---Samuelbb7 on 2/3/14


//No one who does Sunday Sabbath encourages or wants those who do Saturday to change.//

That has not been my experience. Most Sunday folks insist on Sunday. Although I think this is changing.

//No one who is saved already wants to go under the Law after they have been freed by our Lord and Savior.//

Most churches teach a law/rule every Sunday.

Biblically law should most the time be understood as "teaching, Torah."

Worth repeating, "There is so much argument on these blogs, on this issue and others, where some people insist that others should act a certain way and any other way is sin. That kind of behavior goes directly against what Paul says in this verse."
---Rod4Him on 2/3/14




Jerry, you are still under the written letter of the law. And you are not happy. You want everyone to follow you to hell. Don't you understand all those under the written law are heading to hell? No one who is saved already wants to go under the Law after they have been freed by our Lord and Savior. We follow the commandments Jesus gave us who believe. I tell you this because I love you and don't want you to go to hell. I would love for you to be a believer but you reject the Truth. I know why.
"There is none who understand, there is not who seeks after God" (Rom. 3:11). I pray the Spirit of the Law finds you.
---Mark_V. on 2/3/14


Markie: "We are happy where we are at."

You have proved two old sayings:

"Ignorance is bliss!"

"None are so blind as those who will not see."

But, I suppose that it's not your fault since your god predestinated you to be ignorant and blind. My God, on the other hand, condemns the way you systematically disobey and denigrate His Commandments.




---jerry6593 on 2/3/14


Samuel, you say,
"What amazes me is that the verse says do not let people judge you because of these things. But I am judged many times because I keep Sabbath in honor of the Ten Commandment GOD gave and of His Creation and redemption."
I believe you have it reversed. No one who does Sunday Sabbath encourages or wants those who do Saturday to change. In fact it is the other way around. Jerry puts post because he is not happy doing Saturday. He wants everyone to do Saturday as he does. But no one wants to go back under the law, because the law condemns it never saves anyone. We have been set free by Christ from the burden of the written Law. We are happy where we are at. And he is happy where he is at. Is that not enough?
---Mark_V. on 2/2/14


Axey: Samuel has a valid point. YOU are using a verse that says "don't judge about keeping the sabbath days" to judge us who keep THE TRUE Sabbath of God! How hypocritical!

And no, it is not me who is reading between the lines, but rather you. I showed you how my perspective came from the context of the entire chapter, but yours comes from the perspective of false doctrine indoctrination.



---jerry6593 on 1/30/14


jerry6593:

In other words, you ARE reading between the lines. He said to not judge on food OR days - BOTH are shadows things to come. These don't have to be related in any other way.


Samuelbb7:

If others judge you or me or anyone else, that is thier problem. On the other hand, if you or I or anyone else feels convicted to believe and act a certain way, and then attempts to force that belief on others, it then does become our problem as well.

There is so much argument on these blogs, on this issue and others, where some people insist that others should act a certain way and any other way is sin. That kind of behavior goes directly against what Paul says in this verse.
---StrongAxe on 1/29/14


It does not say the Sabbath is done away with. Just not judge.-Samuelbb7 on 1/29/14
I agree whole heartedly.
I always enjoy the discernment of the Truth, but it can lead to being judgmental.
What is worse is I might not even notice that I am leaning more on the judgmental side than true discernment.
I, for one, have no issues with the day, if any, people choose to set aside for the Lord. I am, however, concerned when some may be pushing their commitments and preferences on others.
All too often, Scriptural discussion turns into personal attacks. I am probably just as guilty of that as the next person.
We will all stand before our Creator on Judgment Day to answer for our decisions.

Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath [days]:

What amazes me is that the verse says do not let people judge you because of these things. But I am judged many times because I keep Sabbath in honor of the Ten Commandment GOD gave and of His Creation and redemption.

It does not say the Sabbath is done away with. Just not judge. Pray about it. Let GOD lead you.

Hos 2:11 I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts.

---micha9344 on 1/29/14


Axey: "How do you know this?"

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Paul was talking about feast (eating) days, since the weekly Sabbath Commandment doesn't mention eating.

Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

Rom 14:3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not, and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.

Rom 14:5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.



---jerry6593 on 1/29/14


jerry6593:

You wrote: Naive at best. Paul was speaking of feast days (Sabbaths) contained in ordinances - not the Seventh-day

How do you know this? You just assume it. If it is naive to assume to assume this is the regular Sabbath, it is even more naive to assume it is special Sabbaths - because when the word "Sabbath" is used in the Bible, it is most frequently used to refer to the weekly Sabbath.

As for your insistence that the handwritten (by Moses) ordinances of Leviticus are part of the Sabbath Law written by Jesus in stone in Exodus, you couldn't be more wrong.

OK, if they aren't part of it, please tell me how YOU interpret "keeping the Sabbath", and how it differs from Moses.

Michael: "Remembrance is not an action"

We could debate this, but it would be pointless. I believe that both "remember" and "keep" are actions. Further, anything that God "commands" he will give the "power" to obey (do). I don't believe that anyone is safe deliberately disobeying God.



---jerry6593 on 1/25/14


I really do enjoy our discussions, Jerry. It brings a lot of Truth to the table.
I also commend you for your belief of creation.
That being said, Remembrance is not an action, it is not even in the list of action verbs (to remember). But to go along with those lines and to finish the command:
Exo 20:9-10 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day [is] the sabbath of the LORD thy God: [in it] thou shalt not do any work...
"Do not" on the Sabbath, for even the word "sabbath" means "rest."
What did Jesus say?
John 5:17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
---micha9344 on 1/23/14


Michael: "It is the action (do)"

Here's a "DO" for you ....

Exo 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Jerry,
Micha is short for Michael.
"So you really don't think it possible that a someone could love the person they are committing adultery with? YOU'RE WRONG!
Alot of what your talking about is lust. Otherwise they re just deceiving themselves with the worldly definition of "love."
"But, more importantly, don't you think you show your love for God more by obeying Him rather than disobeying Him?"
I agree whole heartedly.
"The Ten Commandments are specific, whereas the OT commands to love God and your neighbor are not."-jerry6593 on 1/17/14
This is why they are the 2 Royal Laws of Liberty.
It is the action (do), not the lack thereof (do not).

First the laws of Leviticus were written after the Ten Commandments to explain the Ten Commandments in action when the laws are referring moral points. Those moral points are still in effect.
For instance:
Lev 25:14

And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of thy neighbour's hand, ye shall not oppress one another: to Moral point.

Some deal with health and cleanliness which are still good to follow as modern science which has caught up to the Bible tells us.

Others which deal with the temple and government are not for us.

Love that kills is not love.

Agape is the word GOD uses for true love. Look it up.
---Samuelbb7 on 1/17/14


Axey: "Paul said some keep some days holy, while others keep all days equally holy"

Naive at best. Paul was speaking of feast days (Sabbaths) contained in ordinances - not the Seventh-day Sabbath contained in the Ten Commandments. Note the connection to "meats". The feast days (e.g. Passover) were prophecies of the cross, and hence were no longer in effect.

Remember that this same Paul said:

Rom 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

As for your insistence that the handwritten (by Moses) ordinances of Leviticus are part of the Sabbath Law written by Jesus in stone in Exodus, you couldn't be more wrong.
---jerry6593 on 1/17/14


micha: (I don't know whether micha is a male or female name.) So you really don't think it possible that a someone could love the person they are committing adultery with? YOU'RE WRONG! Love is sometimes the prime motivator in such situations. Murderers sometimes even claim to love their victims (ever hear of euthanasia). Perverts even claim to love their partners (e.g. NAMBLA, same-sex marriages).

But, more importantly, don't you think you show your love for God more by obeying Him rather than disobeying Him? True love is manifested through your actions rather than your words. The Ten Commandments are specific, whereas the OT commands to love God and your neighbor are not.



---jerry6593 on 1/17/14


The Decalogue isn't even in the playing rules for a Christian. The 2 Royal Laws of Liberty, Love, fulfills the Law. "in deed" indeed. Love (do) is active. The Decalogue is passive (do not).
One cannot fulfill the Law of Love by adhering to the Decalogue. But, as the Bible states over and over, one does fulfill the Law by Love.
Gal 5:14 Rom 13:8,10 Jam 2:8
To answer your question, jerry:
Keep the 7th day: StrongAxe's question comes to mind.
Love and adultery are diametrically opposed, so no.
"I contend that "love" is a necessary, but not sufficient, condition for obedience to God."-jerry6593 on 1/13/14
wrong conclusion.

jerry6593:

OK, then answer me this: just how do you interpret "keeping the Sabbath"? Paul said some keep some days holy, while others keep all days equally holy - so if a Christian is living correctly, he is keeping the Sabbath holy as well as every other day.

If you want more specific DETAILS (like not working, not buying/selling, not traveling, etc.) you need to go to Leviticus, and if you use that for this law, you need to keep it for all others.

Do you refrain from using cars, stoves, light switches, etc. on the Sabbath? Orthodox Jews don't, because they make sparks - e.g. fire. If you use DO, you selectively keep the 600+ Jewish laws. Which are important, and which aren't?
---StrongAxe on 1/16/14


*****************

Axey: "If we keep the Two Commandments that Jesus said were the most important, we will automatically keep the ten."

That sounds a bit naive to me. How many people do you know that claim to love God but don't keep the 7th day Sabbath? Isn't it possible that a man could love his neighbor's wife and still commit adultery with her?

I contend that "love" is a necessary, but not sufficient, condition for obedience to God.

1Jn 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

Matthew 19 : 9 states

And I sat unto you whosoever shall put away his wife, except for fornication and marry another committeth adultery and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

I suggest that you examine the scriptures for youreslf no one can tell you remarry, you need to get yourself a concordance and look up every word, scripture and advice on divorce with your pastor and pray that you have the exception to remarry.

Don't think you are correct it much depend on whether she committed fornication or as it stresses marital unfaithfulness WHEN YOU CLEARLY (NEVER DID SO) EITHER IN THOUGHT OR DEED.. or you both commit adultery!!!!

In Ephesians 2:15 RSV,...other versions may not give the accurate meaning), we are told...

"by ABOLISHING in His flesh"

The "law of commandments and ordinances" are what Moses told the Israelites to follow (the 10 commandments AND ALSO the "ordinances" of how worship should be done).

THE NEW LAW is the "PERFECT LAW" (the law of liberty, James 1:25 and 2:12).

jerry6593:

Again, I never said we're free to break the Ten Commandments. If we keep the Two Commandments that Jesus said were the most important, we will automatically keep the ten. My point is that if you keep those two, you don't need a longer list of things not to do, because you will automatically no not to do them without having to be told each one explicitly. There are many other things not listed in the Ten that you will also not do if you love God and your neighbor, also without needing to be told explicitly.

"My job is to be crucified with Christ so as to stop being selfish and be loving. When I act in love I do the law."-Samuelbb7 on 1/10/14

Go ahead and try to keep the law. I hope, for your sake, that you manage to keep every last point of it. StrongAxe

I love the law of GOD as it talks about in First John. Why because I love the writer and giver of the Law for it is GOD who saved me. So as I walk in law I do not break the letter or the Spirit of the law.

Do I keep the law to be saved. NO! I keep the law because as a Christian I love GOD and love others so in love I do what is correct. Am I perfect. No. But as also in first John I have a High Priest to go to. As told in Hebrews he knows what I am going through.

My job is to be crucified with Christ so as to stop being selfish and be loving. When I act in love I do the law.

I never said that we can disobey the Ten Commandments. But anyone who obeys those two is already obeying the ten, so that list is, in an of itself, no longer necessary.

Virtually all Christian denominations affirm the Ten Commandment Law, although some claim the power to change them. What denomination are you?

My conclusions are not based on what any particular denomination teaches, but rather what the Bible actually says, and doesn't say.

James 2:10
"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all."

Go ahead and try to keep the law. I hope, for your sake, that you manage to keep every last point of it.

I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man."

If you can live a life of not sinning, Christ never died for you. christan

Notice Paul says He delights in the law of GOD. The same Law you say is done away with. So your verse contradicts your doctrine.

I have never sais I do not sin. In fact MarkV and I have been in agreement in arguing on another post about Christians are still sinners. I said that I die to self daily and live to JESUS because of the New Nature I have as a result of being Born Again. A person who live in sin is not in Christ. Living in sin is not the same as still being a sinner whose live is dedicated to GOD.

Samuelbb7:

You asked: Are the Ten Commandments for Christians?

Nowhere in the New Testament are Christians commanded to obey the Law. They are no longer necessary, and here's why. If you love God with all your heart, you won't have other gods before him, you won't worship graven images, and you won't take his name in vain. If you love your neighbor as yourself, you won't kill him, steal from him, envy him, lie about him, or sleep with his wife.

Children learn many specific rules "don't eat this. don't eat that". Adults learn more general principles that make all specific rules unnecessary because they already include them.

Samuel, you preach the law, because it all comes down to the Saturday Sabbath. I understand your position, you have to defend the law at all cost.
But if you were in Christ you would know that we don't live under the law but under Christ.
"For He (Christ) Himself is our peace, who has made both (Jews and Gentiles) one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, "having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances" as to created in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity" (Eph. 2:14-16) Those in Christ live by faith.

"I believe and Chuck Swindall teach that those who are saved will live saved or not in continuing sin." Samuelbb7

And that makes Swindall and Arminian, period.

Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man."

Whereas, my obedience to the law hinges on my faith in Jesus Christ, it was He who fulfilled the law, not I. But because of my faith in Christ, I'm saved. That's why I believe in salvation by grace 100%, period. I try to obey the law because I'm already saved, not because I want to be saved, see the difference? christan

I believe and Chuck Swindall teach that those who are saved will live saved or not in continuing sin.

As I have stated before I obey the law because I am saved. Because the Love of GOD transferred to me by the New Birth leads me to love GOD and love others and love leads me to obey. Like an apple tree grows apples.

But I believe you have also opposed the law. Are the Ten Commandments for Christians?

As Christians we try to obey the law, not to be saved but because we are saved. But we will always fall. Does that mean we stop trying and continue to sin? Seems some actually advocate such a behavior.

Someone tell/show me!
Where is the evil in this man getting married again?
Where in bible does it say this man "Goodluck" or many man for that matter, cannot remarry?

The Law on adultery has nothing to do with having another wife. Its having anothers wife! He didn't leave his wife for another, she left!
This is not committing adultery, this is not being alone!

The Law
Exo_20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery!
1Ki_11:3 King Solomon had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines.
1Ki_11:4 and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, (as was the heart of David his father.)
Now! How many wives did King David have?

Gen_2:18 (It is not good)
Peace
---TheSeg on 1/5/14


It seems many take the sanctity of marriage very lightly, when we are told that Christ (who's the bride) came to die for His people (His groom and body).

Marriage in the spiritual light points to the perfect marriage of Christ and His church. He gave up His life because He loved His people, even though how sinful we were toward the Father - now, that's unconditional love for you, though many reject this doctrine exist.

True that marriages in the flesh isn't perfect because of our sin nature, but as Christians, we too are admonished to love our wife unconditionally as Christ did with His people. A much more perfect explanation is found in Ephesians 5.

Romans 3:27-31

"Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith."


As Christians we try to obey the law, not to be saved but because we are saved. But we will always fall. Does that mean we stop trying and continue to sin? Seems some actually advocate such a behavior.

"Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law."

Few things: "Except for unfaithfulness." "Let an unbeliever leave." "Would not the land be completely defiled?" I suggest you look these up in your Bible before you reply to me. You will see that there are stipulations and that you are free. This woman has married another man and committed adultery. God would not return to her, why should you?

The problem with this guy ("Goodluck") getting remarried is he will be guilty of committing adultery.
And God knows none of us wants to be found guilty of this, right!

So I guess my answer is
Get remarried and be guilty of this or don't get remarried and be guilty of this.

But either way, repent!
Jas_2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

And POTLUCK!
Remember, if anyone keeps bringing up the law (which they will!)

Tell them the truth!
He that is without sin (among you), let him first cast a stone!

PS. BTW hypocrite!
I tell you, (no buts!) except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
God love you
Peace

1st_cliff:

You asked: Trav, So God went against His own law that forbid the remarriage to a wife who He divorced?
Was this a law with a loophole?


Not There is a law against remarraying a wife one has divorced who has married another, and been divorced again.

This is merely my own personal opinion, but I suspect one reason such a law existed was to prevent "seller's remorse". A man gets tired of his wife and dumps her, so she finds another husband. Then, the first changes his mind, and intimidates the second husband to divorce her so he can have her back. This kind of double-dealing is impossible with this prohibition, and no coercion is necessary without an intervening marriage.

Samuelbb7, do you not understand, "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."

What new law did Christ wrote? He's just revealing to us the extension of "Though shall not commit adultery" which includes "and shall marry another, committeth adultery." When there's a divorce, both husband and wife are classified divorcees, period.

And if you're a divorcee, to marry again is to commit adultery, according to Christ.

Interesting thing about that. Being GOD, he can do...anything.
But, a believable GOD, would/could not break his own laws.
By law, he would have to die for the previous wife, Israel to be free to remarry, Rom 7:3.
What kind of GOD would any worship that can die?
So he did.

The key words in the OT passage is "bill of divorcement"--an actual tangible document.

Before, divorces were simply sending the woman back to her father's house or her original family--usually in disgrace.

The GET (as it's called in Hebrew) provided some protection for both.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

So you are saying JESUS established a new law. Where is the law written that a divorced person cannot remarry?

1Cr 7:15

But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.

1Cr 7:25-27
Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful.

Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.

Paul said this was not a commandment.

Please I need bible passage that will encourage me to remarry. I can't continue to be single while my ex is married.

This is the verse that frees you, if she committed fornication or is foreign.
Mat_19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, "except" it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

GOD was married....and put away the North House of Israel. But, he prophecied he would take her back....cleansed. She,Israel was cleansed/redeemed by the death of Christ.
---Trav on 1/2/14


The scriptural answer to this would be determined on the grounds she had to divorce you in the first place. She is married to another NOW but you don't say she left you for another. If she is the one who committed adultery I'd say you can remarry but if she left you because of YOUR adultery that is different. You could still remarry but whether it would be pleasing to God is a different matter. Only you know the whole story and we are not here to judge, only advise.

Place this dilemma before God and listen to Him.

"That makes you free to remarry." Samuelbb7

Say what? Is that what Christ said? Here, you had better read again,

"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."

The wife remarrying commits adultery is a given. Jesus did not say the husband is "free to remarry". What the husband must do if the wife is committing adultery (or vice-versa) is to divorce unless the spouse repents and returns home. No where does it teach in the Scripture that you're free to remarry while your spouse is still alive.

Sorry about this, but there is not a single verse in the Bible that you can use to justify re-marriage.

Your Wife is committing adultery, but that does not give you license to do the same.

If your wife had remarried then she is committing adultery with another person. That makes you free to remarry.

Only the death of the spouse can you are you allowed to remarry, according to the Bible. But, over the years I have seen Christians divorce and remarry and have very good second marriages, but they might be limited in how they are used in the church. Some will state that since she left you, she's dead to you and that allows you to remarry - not sure I can agree with that. I would advise you talk with your pastor.

Your user name is "Goodluck". God is better than luck. You can submit to Him and discover better than what you are seeking. "He will give you better than what you think you need."

Jesus says, "'Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.'" (Matthew 11:29)

And in case you think you have presented to us an impossible situation, and mean "good luck figuring this out", God is able. What is impossible for us is possible with God > "The things which are impossible with men are possible with God." (in Luke 18:27)

You are looking for some comfort but you're not going to find it in the Bible with regards to re-marry.

Jesus was explicit in Matthew 19:9, "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."

And Paul was consistent with Christ in 1 Corinthians 7:10,11, "And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife."

Hopefully, you will find comfort in Jesus Christ.

James 1:25 and 2:12 tell us that the PERFECT law is what we JESUS WORSHIPERS MUST live by (instead of the old imperfect law about sin).
