               The Holy Bible Is The Immutable  Living Word Of The Eternal God. 
                 
         The Only Bible we Recommend Is The King James / A.V. Bible.

          Here’s the reason, shocking but enlightening truth:  The Bible Is Used To Deceive
                       
 

                Leviticus 26:17   

       And I will set my face against you,          and ye shall be slain before your enemies:

       they that hate you shall reign over you;  and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.

       Ezekiel 20:26 ……

       that I might make them desolate, to the end that they might know that I am the LORD.

                                         A Message From Peter James 

 

            Whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

 

        This is part of a sentence, which when taken out of context seems to say that if anyone marries

        someone who is divorced the person commits adultery.

        But does it really?

 

        As I said it is just a part of a verse.

        Let us look at the whole surrounding context and other related scriptures.

 

        This is the complete verse.

        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.

           

        It explains cause and effect regarding divorce.

        It is telling us that if you put away your wife this is what the result will be,

        except in the case of where the wife has already committed sexual sin.

 

        Of course the same is true if the husband has committed adultery.                

    

        This is a section of Christ’s teaching on what is called the ‘Sermon on the Mount’.

        It includes what is known as the beatitudes, where we also find things taken

        out of context, however, I will concentrate on the matter of ‘adultery’.                                                    

           

        We have many false pastors who are telling their congregations that they do not have to worry

        about all the ‘Old Testament’ commandments.

        However, Christ says that to teach such things will mean that in the kingdom of heaven

        you will be called the least.  This is in the very same chapter.  

 

Matthew 5:19  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments,

and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven:

but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

 

He then goes on to say that our righteousness must be better that the legalistic,

and wicked scribes and Pharisees, who of course were party to his brutal murder.

 

Legalistic interpretation of the verses in this study have destroyed many families.

 

Matthew 5:20  For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed

the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter

into the kingdom of heaven.

 

Christ then addresses the 6th commandment

Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.

 

Matthew 5:21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time,

Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

 

Christ states that under the New Covenant much more was expected of believers,

who are ‘brothers’, than just, you must not kill.

We are not even to get angry with our brother,

 note “without cause,” or curse our brother, otherwise we are

in danger not only of judgment, but also of hell fire.  

 

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: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca,

shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say,

Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

 

He then goes on to show reconciliation rather than outward show was what was required,

and that this should be addressed before going to attend meetings.

It is the condition of our hearts that is important and not outward show.

In other words we must have love for our brothers and our neighbours.

This should only be preceded by love for the Eternal God.

 

Matthew 5:23  Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest

that thy brother hath ought against thee;

Matthew 5:24  Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way;

first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

Matthew 5:25  Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him;

lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee

to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

Matthew 5:26  Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence,

till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

 

For all those misled millions of members in churches who are taught that the commandments

no longer apply, Christ then addressed the very next commandment,

the 7th commandment. There is even order in the sequence of this sermon by Christ.

 

        Exodus 20:14  Thou shalt not commit adultery.

 

        Matthew 5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time,

Thou shalt not commit adultery:

 

It was just a few verses previously that Christ stated that he did not come to destroy the law,

or the prophets, in spite of what the vast majority of ministers of all sorts claim.

 

Matthew 5: 17  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets:

I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall

in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

 

It is a fact that at this time heaven and earth have not passed away,

and neither has everything been fulfilled.

 

Once again Christ makes it very clear that his magnification of the law, means now that

it is not simply a matter of not having sex with another whilst being married,

but just looking at another, and desiring to sleep with that person is adultery.

   This goes way beyond just the physical act.

 

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.

 

Many people go window-shopping, which is really having a quiet lust after things you neither

need, nor can afford. Now we get bombarded with catalogues, newspapers, and tel-lie-vision,

and with every imaginable thing for us to lust after, even in the privacy of our homes.

 

Christ deals with how lust works, and he gives some very dramatic advice in order

to avoid letting your mind run riot, even to the point of self mutilation,

which is very extreme, but it shows the seriousness of the subject.

 

Matthew 5:29  And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee:

for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish,

and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

Matthew 5:30  And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee:

for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish,

and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

 

At present Toy boys, and Toy girls have now become the order of the day,

for many who leave their local area. They feel they are somehow getting away with their

immoral activity. Once again they utterly ignore the fact that ‘There is a God in heaven’,

as my video of that name shows, and he watches all our activities.

this application shows that He watches our thoughts.

See our video:   There is A God In Heaven

 

Mr Body Beautiful, and little Miss Pretty are in great demand.

There is a massive holiday business built around this lust of the eyes.

Cruise ships, and hedonistic holidays in Jamaica, Cancun and all over the place.

Strip clubs, male and female, pole dancing pop music videos, the pre-Lent carnival in Brazil,

with many beautiful and naked bodies on display, and on and on it goes.

All with a single objective to cause people to lust and to sin.

 

Today we have some ludicrous, and even absurd reasons for divorce around the world.

You keep burning the breakfast, you have to go.

You are very untidy etc., etc., you have to go, etc. etc.

 

Matthew 5:31  It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give

her a writing of divorcement:

 

It was never the intention that marriage was to be a merry go round,

a taste it and see situation, but that is what it has become.

 

There were two great institutions created immediately Adam and Eve had been made.

They were the ‘Marriage’ and the ‘Sabbath’, in that order.

 

Genesis1:27  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him;

male and female created he them.

Genesis1:28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply,

and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea,

and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

 

For those who think that the Sabbath is for the Jews they need to think again.

 

Genesis 2:2  And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;

and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

Genesis 2:3  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:

because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

 

It is clear that it is men and women that marry, without any further discussion

anything else is an abomination. It is that simple.

Only a man and a woman can be fruitful and multiply.

There was absolutely no suggestion that this should be a temporary relationship.

After all human marriage is a type of Christ marrying the church,

which, thankfully, is a permanent thing, thankfully.

 

We should also note the three parties to the marriage, Adam, Eve, and God.

That is what is the crux of the matter, not a blessing by some pervert.

 

It is my considered evaluation that blessings by rebellious ministers regardless of their

denomination are actually curses.

You cannot give what you do not have.

You can only give what you have.

It is no surprise to me that people who have ‘lived together’

quite happy for many years, and even have children, promptly split up as soon as they

get ‘married’.

The couple should not be split up at all, but the seriousness of their relationship should

be emphasized to them.

It is wrong to destroy happy functioning families, on the grounds of the scripture

‘do not be unequally yoked’.

 

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?

 

A genuine believer should not marry an unbeliever.

 

An unbeliever cannot be defined as one who does not attend ‘your church’,

or one does not who believes exactly what you believe.

A believer is one who has repented, and received the Holy Spirit.

 

I include these scriptures, which in a sense complicates the issue further,

but we need to prayerfully read them, and not make them say things that

they do not say. Just like Paul is doing I am doing exactly the same thing

 

1 Corinthians 7:6  But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.

 

Paul is saying that he felt that it is better to remain single than to marry.

 

1 Corinthians 7:7  For I would that all men were even as I myself.

But every man hath his proper gift of God,

one after this manner, and another after that.

1 Corinthians 7:8  I say therefore to the unmarried and widows,

It is good for them if they abide even as I.

 

This is fine and true, but we also have to weigh up and to take into consideration.

It is the teaching of celibacy, particularly in the Roman Catholic Church

which has resulted in the rash of paedophile activity amongst priests worldwide.

This has been well documented even in the controlled and manipulated media.

Compensation to victims must be in the billions of dollars, but it does absolutely

nothing to restore the shattered lives.

 

Genesis 2:18  And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone;

I will make him an help meet for him.

 

It is not biblical that priests, ministers, pastors, call them what you will, do not marry.

Since when has the Catholic Church, and its harlot daughters based what

they do on the Word of the Eternal God?

The clear answer is never.

 

       Catholic Church no longer swears by truth of the Bible
                              

See original document here: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,13509-1811332,00.html

 

Therefore Paul concludes.

 

1 Corinthians 7:9  But if they cannot contain, let them marry:

for it is better to marry than to burn.

 

The next two verses are speaking to genuine believers.

This is exactly as it should be.

 

1 Corinthians 7:10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord,

Let not the wife depart from her husband:

1 Corinthians 7:11  But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled

to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

 

   The next two verses are speaking to a mixed marriage of a believer, and an unbeliever.

   Peace should not be destroyed because one is a believer and the other partner is an unbeliever.

   This proves the error of pastors breaking up marriages because one has become a believer,

   often in their church, and they have a partner who is not a member of their church.

 

1 Corinthians 7:12  But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife

that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.

13  And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased

to dwell with her, let her not leave him.

 

   We have further explanations that the unbelieving partner, and the children benefit from

   the union with the believing partner, although the unbeliever will not acknowledge or accept

   that this is indeed the case.

 

1 Corinthians 7:14  For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving

wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

 

If the unbelieving partner leaves, let them go, the believing partner is not in bondage

in these cases. We are not told that in the future this person cannot marry a believer

at some later time. This however, should be the final marriage until death. 

 

Many who claim that they are believers prove their unconvertedness by their deeds.

Of course every one can repent of their wrong doing.

They ignore the following verse:

 

Ephesians 5:25  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church,

and gave himself for it;

 

However, particularly believing husbands, or their ministers, loudly trumpet the following verse,

whilst wrapped in garments of ego and self, whilst the husbands mete out the most vile treatment

to their wives, including ridicule, and adulterous affairs.

So many times I have seen wives treated as less than second class citizens, who are ignorant,

and utterly useless, when this is not the case at all.

Often these wives are long suffering individuals, who take the full brunt of bringing up the couples

children on her own. She works every possible hour, usually to provide for their very small children,

with either and absent or an utterly lazy father.

Trapped, the wives, in certainly what can be called an abusive relationship,

as emotional or physical violence, is continuously  meted out,

feel that they have to ‘endure this prison  unto the end’.

I am speaking of many examples of this, and not isolated cases.

When I talk to these people, I hurt exceedingly.

It is the same where ever I travel. 

I am not telling anyone to leave their spouse, I am just stating the case as it is.

 

Ephesians 5:24  Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ,

so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

 

When a believer is married to an unbeliever, if the unbeliever departs you can let them go.

 

1 Corinthians 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.

 

Paul again jumps back to a believer and an unbeliever.

If you can stick with it, you should stick with it, this is his message.

 

1 Corinthians 7:16  For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband?

or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?

 

In the world today many couples are unbelievers so all they have is just the law of the land.

This is not based on God’s law.

However, there is a the law in our hearts, whether we are believers or not,

and as much as we might like to deny it,

we all know when we have inflicted harm and pain on another.

We might be callous and deceive ourselves, but deep in our hearts we know.

 

When these unbelievers became couples they were not unequally yoked.

They were actually equally yoked unbelievers.

 

Am I promoting loose living?

Certainly not, see my document on the seriousness and responsibilities of Relationships.

It is a matter between the man, the woman and the Eternal God.

Even if you do not involve God, people living together need to realise

that it is a permanent thing.

Satan’s corrupt political systems benefits those who breaks the laws of the Eternal God,

and penalises those who seek to obey the Eternal God.

 

Christ now gives us some cause and effect facts.

 

He tells us that it is the person who puts away his wife that causes her to commit adultery.

 

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.

 

        Let us deal with the exception to causing the wife to commit adultery.

        This exception is “saving for the cause of fornication”.

        This is because she has already committed adultery,

        therefore Christ says that is lawful to put her away 

 

The wife might have been a very faithful and loyal in every way, but as stated earlier,

let us say that the husband wanted a newer and younger model, the distraught wife who

had given the best years of her life to the man she loved, has been left in a seriously

mental mess, often fighting for her sanity.

 

She therefore almost as a reflex reaction commits adultery.

We are told that the husband was the cause.

Does this mean that she is jumping into bed with every Tom, Dick, and Harry?

Not necessarily at all.

We now can go back to the beginning of the message, she might just go ‘Window Shopping’,

lusting after what she might not even be able to procure, but none the less, although

 

Matthew 5:32  was speaking about the wife committing adultery,

 

The following verse deals with the man committing adultery.     

 

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.

      

        It is adultery none the less.

            

      Let us look at Matthew 5:32 again.

 

        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.

 

        First the husband is the cause of the resulting adultery. 

 

        Secondly notice that it is a single sentence, so there is no full stop after

        the phrase, “causeth her to commit adultery:

 

        Third there is a colon ’:’ after the word adultery.

        This means that what follows is directly related to what precedes it.

 

        The translators of the King James, were absolutely meticulous in their translations.

        See Professor Gail Riplinger’s ‘New Age Bible Versions’, a must read for any serious believer.

        See our Document: The Bible Is Used To Deceive  for some examples of her excellent book.

 

        Fourth there is an ‘and’ which does exactly the very same thing as the colon.

 

        Fifth by joining oneself to one who has committed adultery,

        makes one an adulterer as they become  ‘One Flesh’.

 

        Sixth it does not seem from this verse that everyone who marries someone

        who is divorced automatically commits adultery.

 

        This goes right back to Genesis when ‘marriage’ was created.

 

        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.

 

        Christ then quotes Genesis to his listeners.

         

       Matthew 19:5  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?

   Matthew 19:6  Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.

   What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

 

        Christ was actually repeating what He had personally said in Genesis,

        as Christ is the Creator.

 

        John 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

   2  The same was in the beginning with God.

   3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

 

        He that marries the one who has committed adultery also commits adultery.

        The accompanying sentence means that the adulteress remains single.

 

        Of course the situation when the man commits adultery which is common, is the same.

        Such a union will inevitably not be blessed.

        Sadly today we have much worse scenarios with which to contend with homosexual,

        and lesbian unions.

        We have also shown that it is possible for a mixed marriage of a believer and an unbeliever

        in a worst case scenario to separate.

        I know that some would like to exploit this fact and ‘become a believer’, so that they could leave

   their partner. This very deed qualifies such a one as an unbeliever.  

 

   Because of the rebellion, unthankfulness, and treachery of his first wife, the nation of Israel,

   Christ had to divorce her.

   This was a very serious matter.

   Christ had done absolutely everything to look after the nation of Israel with awesome miracles,

   and in the minutest detail, eventually dying for her as well as everyone else.

   Israel was far more interested in living in Egypt and Babylon,

   than being faithful to Christ her husband.

   By Egypt and Babylon is meant the world’s system of government, business, religion, and pleasure

   It is for this reason we produce ‘Babylon Report Videos’ and constantly keep calling on everyone

   to ‘Come Out of Babylon’.

   See our Video: Come Out Of Babylon.  Our Document: Babylon - You Live In Babylon

 

        Revelation 18:4  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her,

       (Babylon as can be seen from the context) my people,

  that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

  

  The following verse gives the scripture relating to the divorce of Israel by Christ.

 

        Jeremiah 3:8  And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery

        I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce;

        yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

 

        The good news is that Christ is going to marry his wife, who has made herself ready.

      

        Revelation 19:7  Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him:

        for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

 

        This bride, the manchild warrior bride, will be different to Christ’s first wife, the nation

        of ancient Israel. It will consist of all who have repented and have the indwelling Holy Spirit,

        and who also listen to, and obey what Christ their soon coming bridegroom tells them now.

        They would have made the necessary changes to their lives in order to make themselves ready.

        That is what the verse is saying, ‘she hath made herself ready.’

        See our video: The Bride Of Christ

 

        We all need to aim to be part of the bride of Christ, and make the necessary God directed

   changes, so that this becomes a reality.

   This should be the purpose of our life.

   

      I repeat.

        It is not my intention to trivialize marriage, as it is of the uttermost seriousness,

        but I do not believe that this verse:

    

        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.

           

        deals with all situations.

 

      In all our relationship situations we should seek the guidance of the Eternal God on what

        we can, and should do. Be very careful of marriage guidance counselors, who are often in need

        of counseling themselves.

        It is very important that we should make sure that we carry out precisely what

        the Eternal God tells us personally.

        We also need to be very careful not to lean on our own understanding, because most times this

        is what got us into the situation in which we find ourselves in the first place.

 

        If we obey, even though we do not understand how it will work out,

        we can be confident as the Eternal God is a faithful God, who deeply cares for His children,

        it will all work out. This applies to any situation.

 

        You will have to make changes, and inevitably there will be pain,

         but the key is to do what the Eternal God tells you, and not any middle man.

 

       Romans 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,

         to them who are the called according to his purpose.

 

                     The only way out of our dilemmas is Jesus Christ.

                                                     He is the only way of escape.

                                                                Praise the Lord.

                                                        Come soon Lord Jesus.

                                                                      Amen.
