Prohibition for divorce:
After over a week of remaining silent on the divorce suit filed against him by his wife, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy Church has finally addressed the allegations.
As We All Know Divorce is a human offense. The offense in question is to violate a provision or vision of God against marriage. On the other hand divorce an attack on God’s standards, is the destruction of God’s plan for marriage. God has arranged so much to humans that they may live in monogamous marriages. The monogamy in question is that one may only have one wife or one husband. In Matthew 19: 6 it says “Thus they are no longer two, but. Therefore, what God has united should not be divorced by human beings “. Romans 7: 2 “For a wife is bound by law unto her husband as long as her husband lives. But if her husband is dead, she is free from the law, so that she is not the adulterous law that binds her to her husband. From these two verses we can see that Christian couples are bound in a monogamous marriage commitment especially in the second verse. In other words there are no second, third, and so on in their lives. Although there are problems as heavy as anything and make someone parted with his partner.
“Christians should not have a divorce, it shouldn’t be. But that doesn’t mean a Christian should not take this step, they may, but that doesn’t make it right, and we shouldn’t take one another to court. But when it happens, we are not the one going,” Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said.
When marriage takes place usually husband-wife couple binds promise before God and the congregation. They have promised earnestly to live a lifetime. This indicates they are ready to face a situation that is very bad and complicated. Situations they consider to be better off apart rather than together forever. As Proverbs 2: 7 “And you ask,” For what reason? “Because the Lord has been a witness between you and the wife of your youth to whom you have been unfaithful, he is your fellow cousin and your covenant wife.” Proverbs 2:14” which leaves a companion of his youth and forgets his covenant of God “. According to this verse man has acted inappropriately with what they have declared or revealed. They have ruined the sacred promise before God that should be preserved.
Moreover God strongly condemns a divorce by man. God never agreed to a divorce for any reason. Especially in touch with other people not the husband / wife. They have committed adultery with others and it is very painful for God. God also never justifies divorce in human life. In fact there is no proper basis for divorce even fornication. Fornicate is a sin and the rise of adultery as a divorce justification that has the meaning of justification for divorce. Everything is stated in Luke 16: 18 “Anyone who divorces his wife, and marries another woman, commits adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced by her husband, she commits adultery”. In another context there is a divorce that does not have the real meaning of divorce, i.e. a cancellation of marriage between spouses. The annulment is due to a sexual immorality not an adultery between spouses. In ancient times the Jews called a spouse or husband when they were bound by a perch. If they want to marry and get caught by their partner is not sacred. The couple can ask for a marriage cancellation and assume never a marriage between them. In this day and age is the same.
Nor did the Apostle Paul support a divorce implied in 1 Corinthians 7: 10 -11, “To those who have married me-no, not I, but the Lord-command, that a wife should not divorce her husband. And if he is divorced, he must live without a husband or make peace with her husband. And a husband cannot divorce his wife “. Reaffirmed that Paul wrote in the Corinthians not only did he hate divorce but God also shared the same hatred of divorce. Paul suggests that all couples be at peace with each other. They must eliminate the divorce decisions that will be made. Paul also writes in 1 Corinthians 7: 12-13 “to others I, not God, say: if any brother have a wife who is not a believer and she wants to live with him, do not divorce him. And if a wife has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. “Although sometimes our spouse is neither believer nor Jesus. Nor can we divorce them with arbitrarily. We have to get married as well as possible.
Pastor Chris said: “There are preachers and there are Men of God. You have to understand something about a Man of God. A man of God is not just someone who worships God or who preaches God. A man of God is directed by God, set on course by God.”
Divorce is indeed a sin committed by human error. Divorce is not the gravest sin but it is still a sin that desecrates ourselves. But we cannot just sit back or be fixated on a situation. Begin we seek and worship God wholeheartedly. Rest assured God is able to forgive our transgression. As the verse in the Bible says “If we confess our sins, then He is faithful and just, that He will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all evil” (1 John 1: 9). ”Come on, let us go to litigation! -The word of the LORD-Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though red like cedar, shall be as white as wool “(Isaiah 1:18). This verse reveals how much our sins God is able to forgive the offense. For he has cleansed from all sin that is so dark and pays us with his blood to be every human being clean again.
