The family kingdom is part of God's Kingdom. When you destroy the family kingdom, you are destroying God's Kingdom. The state cannot tolerate a Godly family. The state promotes divorce and instability in the family for the sole purpose of maintaining power over the people.
We have been flooded with books and pamphlets attempting to justify divorce and remarriage. They try to say the word "divorce" does not really mean "divorce." They attempt to undo the simple words of Christ with sophisticated arguments. These arguments sell books and tell people what their itching ears want to hear. But the Spirit of God's Word is not honored by these books.
The authors of these books are looking for loopholes in the Word of God, rather than seeking the Father's will. Jesus' words are plain, but even the apostles had difficulty accepting them. They said, "If such is the case of the man with his wife, it is better not to marry" (Matthew 19:10).
If we marry, divorce, and remarry, we are no better than the world - even the state sanctions such behavior. And look at the mess they have created with staged polygamy. Children do not even have the security of one father and one mother.
Jesus expresses the Father's will at Matthew 19:3-12. The permanency of marriage is confirmed at Matthew 19:12 when Christ speaks of eunuchs. A eunuch is a castrated male. Once castrated, a eunuch cannot go back. Once two become one flesh in marriage, they cannot be unmarried except through death. Marriage is not a civil contract. It is a permanent covenant.
Jesus knows this is a hard saying and adds, "all will not be able to receive it." There are many on the wide way to destruction, but narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and few there are who find it (Matthew 7:13-14). Let us seek the narrow gate.
Our hearts go out to all of you who are no longer in a Godly marriage. We are praying that no matter how difficult it looks, that your marriage status be restored to that which God intended from the beginning. Nothing is impossible with God.
