A Message From Peter James
LOOSE AND FREE
There is a yoke of bondage under which many of us are held in captivity
and we probably do not even know that this is so.
It is time for this yoke not only to be removed, but to be completely
destroyed. That is the ultimate fate of all yokes that bind us.
Isaiah 10:27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden
shall depart from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck,
and the yoke shall be destroyed by reason of fatness.
It is God’s will that when people marry they should stay together until
they die. Obviously there are legal reasons for divorce but that was
never God's intention in the first place.
A bond is created as they become one flesh, and they shall be one
flesh; that is, "they two", the man and his wife, as it is supplied and interpreted by Christ.
Normally Death breaks the bond.
Matthew 19:4 And he answered and said, Have you not read,
that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female,
Matthew 19:5 and said, For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother,
and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh?
Matthew 19:6 So that they are no more two, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
In the Targum of Jonathan, and in the Septuagint and Samaritan versions:
the union between them is so close,
as if they were but one person, one soul, one body;
and which is to be observed against polygamy, unlawful divorces,
and all uncleanness, fornication, and adultery: only one man and one woman,
being joined in lawful wedlock, have a right of copulation with each other,
in order to produce a legitimate offspring, partaking of the same one flesh,
as children do of their parents, without being able to distinguish the flesh
of the one from the other (Abbreviated from Gill's comments)
Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother,
and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Matthew 18:18 Verily I say unto you, what things soever
you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven;
and what things soever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
A careful reading shows that this verse says the opposite to what we think.
The binding and loosing first takes place on earth and then in heaven.
John 4:15 The woman said unto him, Sir, give me this water,
that I thirst not, neither come all the way hither to draw.
John 4:16 Jesus said unto her, Go, call your husband, and come hither.
John 4:17 The woman answered and said unto him, I have no husband.
Jesus said unto her, You said well, I have no husband:
John 4:18 For you have had five husbands; and he whom you
now have is not your husband: this have you said truly.
although she said that she had none. She seems to have at total of 6 partners.
It appears from the following scriptures
that a bond is made when people decide to sleep together.
I am not minimising for a moment the fact that this is wrong.
1 Corinthians 6:16 Or know ye not that he that is joined
to a harlot is one body? for, The twain, said he, shall become one flesh.
1 Corinthians 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man does is without the body;
but he that commits fornication sins against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6:19 Or know you not that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which
is in you, which you have from God? and you are not your own;
1 Corinthians 6:20 For you were bought with a price: glorify God therefore in your body.
When a couple get married that is what officially happens.
The two have been bound into one flesh on earth.
Now when people just move out, separate, or get divorced,
this bond still exists as to the best of my knowledge not many
churches go through any procedure of breaking the bond
that also had been made in heaven.
Therefore, though they have been legally divorced the bond still exists.
One might not have any bitterness, anger, unforgiveness of any other
negative emotion towards that person but two things still remain in spite
of the fact that you have totally forgiven the other person and you pray
for their well being etc.
First there is the hurt.
Because someone has stopped beating you and you have forgiven them
that does not take away the scars of the pain that you have been
through. Therefore like any sickness this requires the intervention of
God to remove the scars that remain by being specifically prayed
for in this area. Our will and emotions can need healing.
Secondly the bond that has been created needs also to be broken by
prayer specifically in that area as the bond was also made in heaven.
If this is not done the repercussions of being one flesh will continue.
From time to time you will be confronted by past partners in your mind
and you will be saying things such as ‘Why did you do that to me? I do not understand.
This is in spite of the fact that you have no emotional involvement
whatsoever with the person who to all intents and purposes is out of your life.
They still effectively drain your life away and hinder you from doing
what God has ordained for you to do because you are still one flesh.
It follows that the more bonds that there are the more disastrous
the situation is. There is an underlying basic cause of confusion.
Thus you can find that past partners can still have a hold over your life
although there is absolutely no emotional attachment.
You are not free.
Any new relationships will encounter additional problems which you do not understand.
1 Corinthians 12:25 that there should be no schism in the body;
but that the members should have the same care one for another.
1 Corinthians 12:26 And whether one member suffers, all the members suffer with it;
or one member is honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
lives in a manner that we have not appreciated and specific prayer
is required to break this disastrous yoke of bondage.
It also appears that other yokes of bondage can exist and they will
also need to be broken.
The only way out of this dilemma is Jesus Christ.
He is the only way of escape.
Praise the Lord.
Come soon Lord Jesus.
