MARRIAGE

 

1- INTRODUCTION

 

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…" (Hosea 4:6). I will begin this study with this rather sad observation, to see that Children of God, for lack of knowledge, destroy themselves everyday. Many are Christians who have completely ruined their spiritual life today because of marriage, due to the lack of teachings for some, and to stubbornness for others.

 

Marriage is a very important matter to be taken lightly, as it is the case in the world and in churches nowadays. My goal in studying this subject is not to give you a new teaching on marriage, because the Bible has sufficiently taught on this. My goal is rather to study with you the teaching that already exists, that is to say, what is written in the Bible.

 

By the grace of God, I will make every effort to treat this subject in the most complete way possible, taking into account the various questions that we have received from brethren during the various seminars and conferences that we have organised on marriage.

 

2- THE CHOICE OF SPOUSE

 

Let us recall to begin that marriage is the solemn act whereby a man and a woman establish between them a union whose conditions, effects and dissolution are governed by the legal provisions in force in their country, by the religious laws or by custom. Marriage is a sacred vow; and like all sacred vows, it must not be broken. Anyone who desires to get married must understand this very well, and take this into account when choosing a spouse. To get to marriage, one must first be confronted with the choice of his future spouse. This is where serious things must begin, for if the foundation is missed, nothing can be expected from the top.

 

Many Children of God today have been caught in the trap of incantations, seduction, false teachings, false visions, satanic testimonies, false prophecies, and deceitful dreams, and now find themselves in marriages that are similar to hell on earth. And in the churches of our days, some witches have specialised in "nuptial prophecies". With the complicity of the pastors of satan, they spend all their time giving prophecies and revelations already prepared in their world. And all these prophecies and revelations target the few true Children of God who are still in their midst, the main goal being to rapidly unite them with agents of satan, so as to hold them captive forever.

 

By the grace of God, I will make every effort to put at your disposal all the methods and elements that will enable you to make a good choice, for those who fortunately are not caught in the traps of agents of satan yet. With regard to the methods of choice, I will regroup them into two main categories: The methods of satan and the methods of God.

 

2.1- The methods of satan

 

2.1.1- Traps

 

Dreams, prophecies, revelations, visions, signs, and other confirmations that you believe to have or to have received when choosing your spouse, are very often traps set by satan. You should never build your marriage or base the choice of your spouse on such satanic traps, no matter whom you receive them from. You do not need any of such elements to choose your spouse. Understand that satan and his agents that have filled Christian assemblies today spend their time conceiving, organising, and planning these traps for you. And since they know your desire to get married, they organise these things so as to get you without any problem. Fear God, and put Him before everything, and you will see how simple it is to make a choice. If your heart is honest before God, you will not need a miracle to know the person God is giving you in marriage.

 

Know that when your heart is already enticed and full of envy, it becomes very easy for satan to inject you with beautiful dreams that are well conceived, with all the confirmations that you desire. It is the same for signs that you ask from God, and the confirmations of these signs that you believe to have received. You should never rely on them, because these things are often oriented by the extent of the "burning" of your hearts. Do not imitate the agents of satan who spend their time twisting the word of God to deceive themselves and to deceive you. Each time this teaching is given, they tell you that one can use signs in order to choose their spouse, because in the Bible Isaac used signs to choose his wife. As soon as you rebuke them and tell them that Isaac never used signs to look for his wife, they pull themselves together and tell you that Abraham's servant used signs. Beloved, be careful! If you do not meditate on the Bible yourself, and allow these agents of satan to read the Bible on your behalf, you will always fall into their traps. I invite you to carefully re-read this passage talking about the choice of Isaac's wife in Genesis 24, and you will see for yourself that no confusion is possible. I suggest to you below some excerpts from this chapter of Genesis 24.

 

"Now Abraham was old, well advanced in age; and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things. So Abraham said to the oldest servant of his house, who ruled over all that he had, "Please, put your hand under my thigh, and I will make you swear by the Lord, the God of Heaven and the God of the earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell; but you shall go to my country and to my family, and take a wife for my son Isaac." Genesis 24:1-4.

 

"Then the servant took ten of his master's camels and departed, for all his master's goods were in his hand. And he arose and went to Mesopotamia, to the city of Nahor. And he made his camels kneel down outside the city by a well of water at evening time, the time when women go out to draw water. Then he said, "O Lord God of my master Abraham, please give me success this day, and show kindness to my master Abraham. Behold, here I stand by the well of water, and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water. Now let it be that the young woman to whom I say, 'Please let down your pitcher that I may drink,' and she says, 'Drink, and I will also give your camels a drink' - let her be the one You have appointed for Your servant Isaac. And by this I will know that You have shown kindness to my master." And it happened, before he had finished speaking, that behold, Rebekah, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, came out with her pitcher on her shoulder. Now the young woman was very beautiful to behold, a virgin; no man had known her. And she went down to the well, filled her pitcher, and came up. And the servant ran to meet her and said, "Please let me drink a little water from your pitcher." So she said, "Drink, my lord." Then she quickly let her pitcher down to her hand, and gave him a drink. And when she had finished giving him a drink, she said, "I will draw water for your camels also, until they have finished drinking." Then she quickly emptied her pitcher into the trough, ran back to the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels. And the man, wondering at her, remained silent so as to know whether the Lord had made his journey prosperous or not. So it was, when the camels had finished drinking, that the man took a golden nose ring weighing half a shekel, and two bracelets for her wrists weighing ten shekels of gold, and said, "Whose daughter are you? Tell me, please, is there room in your father's house for us to lodge?" So she said to him, "I am the daughter of Bethuel, Milcah's son, whom she bore to Nahor." Moreover she said to him, "We have both straw and feed enough, and room to lodge." Then the man bowed down his head and worshiped the Lord. Genesis 24:10-26.

 

"Now if you will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me. And if not, tell me, that I may turn to the right hand or to the left." Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, "The thing comes from the Lord; we cannot speak to you either bad or good. Here is Rebekah before you; take her and go, and let her be your master's son's wife, as the Lord has spoken." And it came to pass, when Abraham's servant heard their words, that he worshiped the Lord, bowing himself to the earth. Then the servant brought out jewelry of silver, jewelry of gold, and clothing, and gave them to Rebekah. He also gave precious things to her brother and to her mother." Genesis 24:49-53.

 

Firstly: it is not Isaac who went to look for his wife. He remained calm, waiting for the time and the choice of God for him. He was not at all involved in the choice of his wife. He submitted himself totally to his father, and remained neutral during the whole process of the choice of his wife. He was not burning with passion as you often burn when you are looking for your wife. Therefore, he needed neither dream, nor revelation, nor prophecy, nor vision, nor sign, nor confirmation.

 

Secondly: it was not Abraham who instructed his servant to request signs from God, and he was not even aware of what his servant was doing once left.

 

Thirdly: the servant of Abraham was not looking for his own wife, but the wife of somebody else. And he was not asking for a sign for himself, but for somebody else. He was therefore neutral and selfless, and his heart was free from any lust. In such a state, he could receive freely and clearly from the Lord, without satan distracting him.

 

Therefore, never fall into the traps of the agents of satan who distort the word of God in order to lead you astray, nor fall into the traps of copying biblical examples without understanding their meanings very well. Allow me to open a small bracket at this level. I know that some pastors agents of satan who will want at all costs to impose women on their faithful, will try to exploit these passages to their ends. As they well know how to do it, they will tell the faithful that according to the teachings, someone else can request a sign from God on their behalf, or receive visions or dreams on their behalf. And they will quote this example of the servant of Abraham who was able to obtain freely a sign from God because he was not looking for his own wife, but the wife of somebody else. Know that they are not in the same position as the servant of Abraham. Do not listen to them, and do not fall into their traps. The servant of Abraham was a faithful servant; he was not an agent of satan. Beloved, do not let anybody make the choice of your spouse for you, no matter what reason that person gives you.

 

Flee from all forms of seduction! Dreams, prophecies, revelations, visions, signs, and other confirmations that you receive when choosing your spouse, are nothing but well conceived traps by satan and his agents. They are demons in flesh that fill churches nowadays, that conceive all these traps, with the help of the demons in spirit, so as to get you.

 

As for you who are already married, and who had had your partners through dreams or as a result of prophecies and other satanic demonstrations, you understand better what I am talking about. With all what you are going through in marriage, you have already understood that you got married to real serpents. And you agree with me that all the dreams, visions, and other revelations that you thought to have received before your marriage, were purely satanic, for God, the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, cannot give you dreams, visions, and prophecies with confirmations in order to encourage you to become joined in marriage with serpents. The Lord will never be behind such signs. You are now in a better position to help me to convince our brothers who want to get married, that this teaching that I give them is true.

 

I still want to stress that dreams, prophecies, revelations, visions, signs and so-called confirmations that you believe to receive when choosing your spouse, are traps well conceived by the agents of satan that you blindly call brothers and sisters, and who fill churches today. These things do not come to you from God. Be very careful!

 

2.1.2- False Teachings

 

Do not be deceived by the methods of delusion that false teachers give you, who ask you to write on pieces of papers the characteristics of the person that you desire. All these barbaric methods are purely satanic. Many churches today have become dating agencies and meeting places for people eager to get married. And their pastors spend time in their vulgarity, asking, and even at times forcing brothers who are not yet married, to "catch" any sister in the church who is "free", to get married to. And you hear them encouraging brothers not to hesitate to choose or to rapidly take one of the sisters still "vacant". In the same way, they push the girls toward brothers while persuading them not to hesitate to accept any brother who will present himself before them. And to convince them, they fill up the measure of their baseness by making filthy and stupid remarks such as: "The goat grazes where it is tied". Flee from such dustbins while there is still time! God is not there.

 

We once went to a conference during which marriage was part of the subjects taught. The joker Speaker who pass himself off as a great man of God based in South Africa, came out with a lot of stupidities so much so that even blind christians who were present found it difficult to swallow what he said. He taught amongst others, that for a man to choose his spouse, he must first open a bank account to the latter, and pay a certain sum of money into that account, etc. And this wolf was encouraging women to consider a man's proposal only when this requirement has been fulfilled. There are so many false teachings nowadays; and the sad thing is that the demon pastors succeed with their incantations in getting their followers to put these follies into practice.

 

There are other false teachings that tell you of "ribs", by telling you that every man has his rib somewhere, because God drew Eve out of Adam's rib. These deceitful workers, who teach such rubbish, develop most often around this notion of rib, ludicrous theories. Run away from these empty teachings! You do not have any rib anywhere. Stop allowing yourself to be deceived by these false teachers who are in the ministry just for their stomach.

 

2.1.2.1- Beware of merchants of illusions!

 

Beware of the illusion-mongers who organize singles get-togethers. The Bible teaches us that it is a blessing for God's Children to serve God without being married. Demons sent into the world to oppose God, organize every time meetings for single people, to preach to them the contrary of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If you listen to them, you will find yourselves in Hell with them.

 

2.1.2.2- Watch out for sorcerers!

 

Be careful with those sorcerers who ask you to write your names and the names of the people you want to ask for their hand in marriage, so that they can help you in prayers. They will never help you to pray. When they collect these names, it is to make incantations against you, with the aim of directing your choice towards another agent of satan of their choice. Know that you do not need people to help you to pray to have a partner. Run away from all these satanic teachings.

 

Also be careful with the witch doctors who organise special prayer sessions for those who are looking for a partner. If you value your salvation, you should never fall into the traps of these sorcerers. These are pacts that they sign to hand you over to satan through marriages that they will cause you to make. After their special prayers, you really find a partner, but which one? An angel of satan who came from the world of darkness. If you do not want to marry the water sirens, flee from all those easy promises, and those shortcuts that those demons offer you. You are warned!

 

Know that all these so-called bachelors meetings, or bachelors' seminars, or prayer meetings for bachelors, etc. are purely satanic gatherings, organised by sorcerers who work for satan, and who set traps for you so as to trap you in the bonds of witchcraft forever. It is in complicity with sorcerers' bachelors that these pastors of satan organize these meetings, so as to get the few Children of God who desire to get married, and who without discernment and in their discouragement are ready to accept anything as partner.

 

These meetings are places of all possible seductions and incantations; they are places of strong satanic concentration. Be careful! Flee from all these satanic fairs; flee from these gatherings of demons! If you value your salvation, never set foot in these places of recruitments for Hell. Satan will never grant you a partner as a gift. In this generation full of sorcerers and demons, you must understand that it is not in witchcraft meetings that you have to go and look for a partner, and it is not also in haste and under the influence of terrible incantations that you should look for a partner. We do not look for a partner in a public place as we would for a garment on sale. Man has not become a commercial object to be displayed in a great trade fair. Flee from satanic fairs!

 

2.1.3- Seduction

 

2.1.3.1- Testimonies

 

Testimonies constitute another powerful instrument that agents of satan use in order to deceive Children of God. You must be careful with testimonies, and never use a testimony as a basic element for your choice, even if it is a true testimony. Sorcerers have so many pompous testimonies today, that just by listening to them, you sometimes have the impression that you have never known God. Yet with a little discernment, you understand that it is purely and simply seduction.

 

Good testimonies: I have just said that you should never use a testimony as a basic element for your choice, even if it is a true testimony. It is not because all the testimonies that we receive are false, it is because every true testimony is surrounded by several factors, which at times are not explained or specified when the testimony is given. That is why if you attempt to copy those testimonies, it is certain that you will not obtain the same result, because you need to put yourself in the same positions, in the same conditions and in the same predispositions as the person who is testifying, in order to claim to obtain the same result. Moreover, every true testimony coming from God, is very often personal, that means that you cannot easily appropriate somebody else's testimony.

 

False testimonies: With regard to bad testimonies, they are far too many. All the demons who go round the world encouraging young people to get married, have their quiver full of them. And when they pass, you cannot escape from their arrows, and you hear all sort of things. Let me give you some of them:

 

A great preacher was going round the churches testifying how he met his wife. This demon who got married to a divorced "christian" woman, was saying in his testimony that his wife was already married, and that one day his god showed him in a dream that this married "sister" was his wife. He asked himself how that could be possible since that woman was already married, and his god told him that with him everything was possible. After that he then trusted his god, and he prayed and remained steadfast in prayer for that. One day that woman divorced, and he saw the mighty hand of his god in action. He saw the accomplishment of his dream. That is how they came together, they got married, and they now serve their god together, and travel all over the world to give this abominable testimony. That sorcerer is a pastor, and his wife is also a pastor as it is in fashion today. These two agents of Hell go round the world to deceive Children of God. And when these serpents render these satanic testimonies, hard hearted and ignorant people clap and shout alleluia, alleluia!

 

Know that this case is not unique. Many are those sorcerers who make up such testimonies from the satanic world, to soil Children of God, to slander the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and also to trap numerous unstable Christians. You hear so many testimonies of people who tell you that it was in dreams or in visions that they had their partner; others following prophecies and revelations; and still others following signs and confirmations, etc. And these testimonies are often so interesting to listen to, and always seem so convincing that without discernment, you will swear that they are really from God.

 

You hear other sorcerers' pastors who tell you that before getting married, they "received clearly from the lord" that this particular sister was to be their wife. But when they went to ask for the sister's hand in marriage, the sister categorically refused. But since they had "received clearly from the lord", they continued praying and pressing the sister for several months, and the sister eventually agreed. And they teach you that you need to know how to insist. I warn you against such satanic testimonies conceived by these sorcerers in the world of darkness. Do not fall into the trap of imitating them. You should know that true love is not forced. These sorcerers tell you that they "received clearly from the lord" as if the Lord had nothing else to do apart from showing them women. Understand that God does not need to reveal women to you. When you choose to get married, you are the one making the choice; it is not God who makes it for you. And when you want to choose your spouse, you are the one choosing the spouse; it is not God. God can lead you during the choice of a spouse just as He leads us every day in everything that we do. And if you use the methods of God developed below, by making use of all the elements of discernment that the Lord has given us, you will not be wanting to clearly receive what so ever from God, because the criteria of choice according to God, are already sufficiently clear.

 

Finally, beloved, know that if even good testimonies are of no help to you in the choice of your spouse, it will not be bad testimonies that will be of any help to you. Also be careful with all these empty books titled "how to know the will of God for your marriage?" and which are stuffed with purely carnal theories.

 

2.1.3.2- Choice made through the Internet

 

Satan has created for those who love to seduce themselves another great seduction, the search for marriage through the Internet. Even many demons called christians have already created internet websites and forums that they call meeting Sites for christian bachelors. And it is on these satanic forums that the foolish go to look for their "christian" partner. With all these you do not need additional proofs that we are in the end times, do you?

 

Some time ago, we came across an example of such marriage made through Internet, in which the choice was made on one of these satanic matrimonial forums that take the name of "Christian" forum. The husband, "christian", was a divorced christian, that is somebody who had divorced having made a christian marriage, and the woman, "a christian, very zealous and very committed in the faith", was a great voodoo sorceress, who had also previously put an end to her first relationship with another man, a relationship during which she had a daughter. And this little girl that she had in her first relationship was also a renowned sorceress. As soon as these two "christians" got married after their meeting on this Internet forum called christian’s forum, the woman went and took her mother, a great voodoo priestess, to settle her in the house. There were therefore in the house of the poor and newly remarried "christian", three terrible renowned witches: His new wife, his new mother-in-law, and his new stepdaughter, the daughter of his new wife. You yourself can imagine in which trap this foolish got caught. His house had become a true laboratory of satan, controlled by three great voodoo priestesses. They were the ones dictating all the laws of the house, and the man, already completely under the influence of these witches, became an instrument that was manipulated at will by these vampires. The hell that he thought of escaping by remarrying hastily after his divorce became a super hell, and this time around a true hell indeed. Long live the "christian" internet matrimonial forum!

 

Finally, you must understand that, with regard to your choice of a spouse, if you put God before marriage and before everything in your life, He will lead you at the right time to make the best choice. But if you allow yourself to be drawn away, and enticed by your own lusts, by your passions, and by your carnal desires, it is obvious that you will be blinded.

 

2.2- The Methods of God

 

2.2.1- Patience

 

What generally pushes Children of God to make a bad choice, are the rush and the lack of patience. As soon as they start burning with passion, they think that it is enough to "lay hold of" the first woman that one meets, or the first man that presents himself, in order to quickly quench the fire. What they forget, is the fact that once the fire is under control, they have to deal with the life ahead, which unfortunately constitutes the most complicated and also the most difficult part. Watch out for haste! It is in calmness and in peace that you easily listen to the voice of God. It is in patience and quietness that you shall make a good choice. Any haste is likely to harm you, and any hasty choice is automatically a bad choice. You will never make a good choice in haste.

 

This is therefore what you ought to do; the moment you start feeling the urge to get married, the first thing to do, is to pray. But, instead of praying as you usually do, asking God to give you a partner, rather pray and ask God to take away this carnal desire that you are feeling, and to give you rest and quietness that you need, so as to serve Him without burning, until the day He gives you a partner. Watch out in order not to fall into the trap of taking up the challenge with God, or even rebelling before God as many Children of God do when they are discouraged. Very often when Children of God are tired of praying and looking for a partner, they get angry and tell God that if at a given time God does not give them a partner, they will take anything and get married. Understand that it is in madness that such reactions spring up. I encourage you to overcome these moments of folly, and to put your faith in God, while being ready to accept His will. Do not forget that the will of God is always the best for us, even as at first sight it does not often appear easy for us to swallow. May the God of peace grant you patience, and keep you from all disobedience and all murmurings! Amen!

 

2.2.2- Discernment

 

God in His love has granted us discernment, which remains and will remain, together with patience, the only true safe elements leading to a true choice of a good spouse. You should therefore show a lot of discernment when you want to bind yourself for life. Do not forget that the bond of marriage binds you for life. Take time to meditate very well on the teaching on discernment, before making the choice of your spouse. In patience, discernment is more easily exercised. It is only in patience, with a bit of discernment, that we discover all the hypocrites, all these zealous agents of satan who claim to be Children of God, and who by treachery pretend to be lambs, yet they are real serpents. It is only in patience, with a bit of discernment, that you will discover all these zealous mermaids, obedient and "exemplary" who sneak into the midst of the people of God, and who claim to be sisters, yet they are true vipers. Know that Churches today are filled mostly with serpents, mermaids and other satanic spirits that find refuge there. I invite you once more to examine very well the teaching on Discernment, and to show a lot of patience and vigilance as long as things are not very clear. Now that the different methods of choice have been well examined, I will give you some other advice that will lead you to make a good choice.

 

2.3- Advice

 

These advice will on the one hand, be based on the categories of persons that you must not consider when making the choice of your spouse, and on the other hand, on the categories of persons to avoid or to examine carefully before consideration when you make your choice.

 

2.3.1- Categories of persons that must not be considered

 

2.3.1.1- Unbelievers

 

The Lord does not accept any marriage between a Christian and an unbeliever. God has always warned His people against foreign women, and all those who chose to disobey God have always suffered the consequences. "Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people." 2Corinthians 6:14-16. "A wife is bound by law as long as her husband lives; but if her husband dies, she is at liberty to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord." 1Corinthians 7:39.

 

You should never in any case consider an unbeliever as someone who can become your spouse. Do not fall into the traps of sorcerers who tell you that they get married to unbelievers in order to win them for the Lord, as if it were a guarantee. They know what they are doing. They already know that they are of hell, and that they have nothing else to lose or gain. Do not imitate them! Never attempt to get married to an unbeliever under the pretext that they will become Christian. The conversion of somebody to Christ never depends on us, and it is something unpredictable. It is not easy to know in advance who will believe in God and who will not; and marriage is not a joke. Even amongst true Christians, marriage is not an easy thing; it is not therefore with an unbeliever or a presumed future Christian that it will be easy.

 

There are also some deceivers that promise marriage to unbelievers on condition that they believe in God. Never fall into these small traps of fools. If someone knows that the only thing to do in order to get married is to be converted, that will not cost them anything to pretend to be converted and disguise as a child of God for the rest of the time that is necessary to obtain his/her desire. You do not need to be very intelligent to understand this. Know that unbelieving partners are a trap for you. Let us examine together these biblical examples:

 

"But King Solomon loved many foreign women, as well as the daughter of Pharaoh: women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians, and Hittites - from the nations of whom the Lord had said to the children of Israel, "You shall not intermarry with them, nor they with you. Surely they will turn away your hearts after their gods." Solomon clung to these in love… For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the Lord his God, as was the heart of his father David." 1Kings 11:1-2, 4.

 

"Now Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord, more than all who were before him. And it came to pass, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took as wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians; and he went and served Baal and worshiped him." 1Kings 16:30-31.

 

2.3.1.2- The members of the carnal family

 

In some traditions, men are still allowed to get married to their close relations, that is, the members of the family more or less distant. Know that before the Lord, that is no longer permitted. The time when a man could get married to a woman in his family or his close family is over. Avoid building your marriage on incest. It is not because you are legally married that your sin will change its name, or that it will no longer be sin at all.

 

2.3.1.3- Packed parcels

 

By packed parcels I mean all these women that parents very often try to find for their sons who are in foreign countries. Men must not accept these kinds of women sent to them in the form of parcels from another country. I will never get tired of reminding you that marriage is extremely delicate, and for that reason, each and every person must know a partner very well before accepting them as a spouse. You should therefore no longer accept this kind of woman that parents find for you in another country. Women must also no longer allow themselves to be sent as parcels.

 

2.3.1.4- Jezebels

 

Since the success of a marriage is based on the submission of the woman, it becomes imperative to flee from women who are rebellious and not submissive. With such women, marriage will never work. And even if the marriage works, it will work to the detriment of the work of God, that is, for man to give the impression of having a marriage that is successful, he must despise God and the instructions of God, and spend time executing but the will of the Jezebel. "… And the contentions of a wife are a continual dripping." Proverbs 19:13. "Better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and angry woman." Proverbs 21:19. "A continual dripping on a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike." Proverbs 27:15. "It is better to dwell in a corner of a housetop, than in a house shared with a contentious woman." Proverbs 25:24.

 

2.3.1.4.1- What is a Jezebel?

 

To better understand this Jezebel's character, I invite you to read through with me the story of this daughter of the king of the Sidonians in 1Kings 21:1-26.

 

"And it came to pass after these things that Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard which was in Jezreel, next to the palace of Ahab king of Samaria. So Ahab spoke to Naboth, saying, "Give me your vineyard, that I may have it for a vegetable garden, because it is near, next to my house; and for it I will give you a vineyard better than it. Or, if it seems good to you, I will give you its worth in money." But Naboth said to Ahab, "The Lord forbid that I should give the inheritance of my fathers to you!" So Ahab went into his house sullen and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him; for he had said, "I will not give you the inheritance of my fathers." And he lay down on his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no food." 1Kings 21:1-4.

 

"But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said to him, "Why is your spirit so sullen that you eat no food?" He said to her, "Because I spoke to Naboth the Jezreelite, and said to him, 'Give me your vineyard for money; or else, if it pleases you, I will give you another vineyard for it.' And he answered, 'I will not give you my vineyard.'" Then Jezebel his wife said to him, "You now exercise authority over Israel! Arise, eat food, and let your heart be cheerful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite." And she wrote letters in Ahab's name, sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Naboth." 1Kings 21:5-8.

 

"She wrote in the letters, saying, proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth with high honor among the people; and seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him, saying, "You have blasphemed God and the king." Then take him out, and stone him, that he may die. So the men of his city, the elders and nobles who were inhabitants of his city, did as Jezebel had sent to them, as it was written in the letters which she had sent to them. They proclaimed a fast, and seated Naboth with high honor among the people. And two men, scoundrels, came in and sat before him; and the scoundrels witnessed against him, against Naboth, in the presence of the people, saying, "Naboth has blasphemed God and the king!" Then they took him outside the city and stoned him with stones, so that he died. Then they sent to Jezebel, saying, "Naboth has been stoned and is dead." 1Kings 21:9-14.

 

"And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, "Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give you for money; for Naboth is not alive, but dead." So it was, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab got up and went down to take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite." 1Kings 21:15-16.

 

"Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, "Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, who lives in Samaria. There he is, in the vineyard of Naboth, where he has gone down to take possession of it. "You shall speak to him, saying, 'Thus says the Lord: "Have you murdered and also taken possession?"' And you shall speak to him, saying, 'Thus says the Lord: "In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth, dogs shall lick your blood, even yours." So Ahab said to Elijah, "Have you found me, O my enemy?" And he answered, "I have found you, because you have sold yourself to do evil in the sight of the Lord: Behold, I will bring calamity on you. I will take away your posterity, and will cut off from Ahab every male in Israel, both bond and free. I will make your house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah, because of the provocation with which you have provoked Me to anger, and made Israel sin. And concerning Jezebel the Lord also spoke, saying, 'The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.' The dogs shall eat whoever belongs to Ahab and dies in the city, and the birds of the air shall eat whoever dies in the field. But there was no one like Ahab who sold himself to do wickedness in the sight of the Lord, because Jezebel his wife stirred him up. And he behaved very abominably in following idols, according to all that the Amorites had done, whom the Lord had cast out before the children of Israel. 1Kings 21:17-26.

 

Jezebel is therefore this spirit of insubordination, of rebellion, and of wickedness that controls many women agents of satan. Therefore, Jezebels never submit themselves, neither to God nor to men. They are women who are driven by the spirit of domination, of revolt, of rebellion of insubordination and of wickedness. By their satanic power, they always succeed in subjecting their husband, and cause them to do their will, instead of the will of God. Thus, they drive their husband to rebel against God, and to be ridiculous both before God and men.

 

Understand that this spirit of wickedness, of domination, of revolt, of rebellion, and of insubordination, that rules those women, is a spirit of witchcraft. Therefore, do no longer wait for other proofs of witchcraft to understand that those women are witches. All these fruits that I have just cited, wickedness, domination, revolt, rebellion, and insubordination, are the fruits of sorcery. An element such as wickedness may not be apparent, because some know how to hide their wickedness, and give the impression to people that they are very kind women. But the other fruits that they bear help you to recognise them. They are women who lie even in the presence of God. Some know how to disguise, and pretend to be true Christians. But with a little discernment, you always end up catching them. They are always less at ease with the things of God, but they are so much attached to the things of the earth and to the lusts of the world. They always spend their time setting their husbands up against God, against the men of God, and against the Church of God. That is the reason why men who get married to Jezebels, rarely escape Hell. Be careful therefore, when you want to choose a wife. "And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, also how he had executed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, "So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time." 1Kings 19:1-2.

 

2.3.1.4.2- The Jezebel phenomenon

 

I would like to share with you this small anecdote: in a Christian assembly, a pastor who was deploring the extent of the Jezebel phenomenon within the Christian assemblies, had decided to reflect on this subject, that is on how to eradicate this evil, if that were possible. During a big meeting, this pastor asked all the men who were dominated by their wives to leave their seats and go to another row, which he had vacated for that occasion. He was the first to occupy that row of men dominated by their wives, and after him all the other married men of the assembly, except for one, followed him. At the end of the meeting, this pastor and the other elders concerted in order to discuss the outcome of that matter, and found it better to meet the only married man of the assembly who did not move from his seat, to ask him what was really his recipe, and how he did to have his wife under control, and avoid being dominated by her.

 

They then decided to meet this "fortunate" brother. As soon as they met him, they asked him to share with them his recipe. The only married brother, who did not get up from his seat then answered them that he had no recipe, contrary to what his companions in the ministry thought. He surprised them by revealing to them that his own case was worst than theirs, by explaining the reason why he did not get up from his seat. He then revealed to them that the moment the pastor made the alter call for men bullied by their wives to stand up, his wife cast such a glance at him, meaning that if he dared to stand up, he would pay the price. It was thus under serious threat, and while trembling, that this "only fortunate brother" did not rise up. This story gives you an idea of how satan has succeeded through his agents, the Jezebels, to hold thousands of men captives in the links of marriage, including the servants of God. Do not therefore be surprised that all these pastors that you know are disqualified from the titles of elders. Most of them have but rebellious and insubordinate wives, that is, true witches. So you cannot expect much from them.

 

I therefore seize this opportunity to make a call to unmarried young men who have the desire to serve God. Know that if you fall into the trap of getting married to a Jezebel, your ministry is annulled. If therefore you intend to get married, take all the time possible, so as to make a good choice. When you get married to a Jezebel, you will be almost certain to find yourself in Hell, because Jezebels have all that they need to turn men away from the way of God. They are powerful instruments in the hands of satan. Be careful!

 

2.3.1.5- Women who ask for men's hand in marriage

 

Know that women, who have the cheek to ask for men's hand in marriage, are witches. You should be very careful! It is the same with women who indirectly ask for the hand of men, or pass through an intermediary, or in a crafty way, like those who come to men and seduce them with dreams or visions that they might have received, concerning some union amongst them. It is the case of women who come and see you to tell you that they had a dream, or a vision, or even a revelation that you will get married to them. You should never fall into the trap of these witches, if not you will regret it all your life.

 

If you are one of those who spend time contesting, and who like to see before believing, feel free to despise these teachings. You will understand it one day. As for you who are already married, if it is your wife who asked for your hand in marriage, you should know now that you have a sorceress in the house if you did not know it yet. You should no longer be surprised by her works which are already quite visible in your house, and which will continue to be more visible.

 

I met one unfortunate pastor some years ago, who fell into the trap of one of these witches, what is more, was a mother of several children. After he followed the teaching which I had given on marriage, he came and met me, and in our sharing, he confirmed to me that he had fallen into one of the cases which I cited in the teaching. It is his wife, already a mother of several children, who asked for his hand in marriage, through a well organised satanic trick, by fabricating dreams and revelations indicating that he was to be her husband, dreams and revelations that were later on confirmed by their main pastor at that time. As soon as he revealed that to me, my eyes were filled with tears, because I saw that pastor's zeal, and his desire to serve God in the truth. But I knew that with a sorceress of the calibre of the one he had as wife, he would go no where. I knew that his zeal and his commitment would gradually quench, for with a sorceress as wife, one can never serve God in the truth, I indeed say, never.

 

The Lord finally led me to understand that this pastor's wife, and her daughters gotten before marriage, they too witches, were amongst those leading witchcraft in that church. Together with the other sorcerers of the assembly, they were operating freely, and it was even in the house of this pastor that sorcerers had their meetings and gatherings. I nevertheless shared all of these with my poor brother pastor, but while knowing that his case was a desperate one, for there was actually no foreseeable real solution. And as it stands, what follows is that which was predictable.

 

2.3.1.6- Girls who say no and later on come back to their decisions

 

Wise men must be careful with women who say no to their marriage proposals, and who after some time come back to their decision and say yes. Know that behind this kind of U-turn, is hidden what you ignore. Do not be fooled! I remind you again that true love is not forced. To this effect, I advise young women who are not yet ready to give their opinion of the marriage proposal, to better tell their companion to give them time to think and pray before deciding, instead of saying no only to say yes after.

 

2.3.1.7- Men who "play lottery"

 

Women should never accept men who ask for the hand of several women in marriage at the same time. There are cases of so-called brothers who ask for the hand of several sisters of the same assembly in marriage, at the same time. Know that such men are sorcerers, and not brothers. They are agents of satan who are there to put sisters at loggerheads. You must run away from such demons. They propose marriage to several sisters at the same time as if they were playing lottery. At times many sisters fall into the traps of these demons and accept their proposals, and they then take their time to clown and choose amongst all these women the one who better satisfies the lust of their eyes. These dogs are there to cause sisters to oppose one another, and lead them to hate one another, to quarrel one with another, and to detest one another. Some of these monsters at times even break up their engagement with a sister, without any clear reason, so as to quickly run after another sister who has just come into the assembly. Know that all these deceivers are demons. If you fall into their traps, you will regret it. And if you know so-called brothers who behaved this way, you will now know who they really are: They are demons.

 

Let me give you this other example, to show you up to what extent churches have become a true rot today. It is the case of a so-called brother, who in addition, was a future pastor on training in a bible institute. He formerly asked for the hand of a so-called sister in marriage, and the latter refused. That sorceress refused that proposition because she was watching for "more attractive" young men in the assembly. When after several years and despite all her seduction techniques, she did not get any of the young men she was watching for, she turned back to this future pastor, who, in the course of time, got officially engaged to another young sister, and was to be married immediately after graduating from the bible school. As soon as the demon, future pastor, was contacted by that sorceress, he broke up his engagement that was already official, in order to return to the sorceress who had categorically refused his proposal several years back. This did not stop people from celebrating the marriage of these two demons in the church, and this did not prevent this demon future pastor from becoming a pastor either, and from going up through the ranks to become a great super pastor. Alleluia! This is real seduction!

 

2.3.1.8- The divorcees

 

In the teaching on remarriage, I made mention of some cases of divorce that could be examined, for a possible remarriage. But be very careful, because these cases are extremely rare, and are not at all easy to establish. With the uncertainties that often surround some problems at the origin of divorce, on the one hand, and the lack of sincerity of the divorcees, on the other hand, these cases are always very delicate. You would therefore do better to be careful. Do not take the risk of spending all your life in adultery. And for the men of God, who have to examine the problems of the divorcees, know that many divorcees always like to prove that they have no problem, and that the problem comes from the other partner. You should never fall into the trap of admitting without thinking that the first person speaking is right. "The first one to plead his cause seems right, until his neighbour comes and examines him." Proverbs 18:17.

 

2.3.1.9- Young converts

 

It will be very foolish on your part to consider young converts when you are thinking about marriage. It is only after spending much time in the truth that one becomes a Christian. It is when persecutions and difficulties come, that one can recognise the Christian. And there are so many who go back into the world immediately after the first trial. You only have to look around you. Many of those you once called brothers and sisters have actually gone back into the world. Just imagine one moment that you had gotten married to one of them. Where would you be now? You would now find yourself in a mixed marriage, that is, a marriage in which one partner is a Christian and another an unbeliever, whereas you both got married as Christians.

 

And even if you have the privilege of knowing the truth, and of living in the sound doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ, do not get agitated, and do nothing in a hurry. They are also many who claim to have accepted the sound doctrine, and sneak into the midst of brethren pretending in public to live like real brothers. It is sometimes after several months and even several years, that you catch them. You understand once again why the only methods of choice coming from God are patience and discernment. Any other method, be it very clear, is a real danger to you.

 

2.3.1.10- Partners whose mothers are witches

 

For those of you who have been in the faith for some time, and who knew God in folly, you have already understood as myself, that these so-called beautiful teachings full of blessings that we received when we believed, were simply sweet stories that were well conceived, easy to tell, and pleasant to the ears. Amongst these stories, you have the one that made us to believe that as soon as somebody believes in God, they no longer suffer from anything, all the bonds in their lives are broken, all the curses weighing them down are annulled, any satanic influence over their lives comes to nothing, etc. And even though people were not taught how to confess their sins before being baptised, they were all the same given the hope that everything was already alright in their lives. The reality is unfortunately different from the sweet fable that we were told. Spiritual bonds in our lives are not broken automatically as we thought, and several other factors difficult to explain often come into play, when we begin to examine some cases. Know beloved that spiritual laws are above our human logics and the heavenly laws difficult to apprehend.

 

Even though family ties pass generally from the parents to the children, true links are instead passed on from the mother to the children. And the most difficult links to break are the ones from the mother, or from the maternal descendants. It is the same with sorcery. Consequently, even though fathers who are sorcerers are sometimes capable of passing on sorcery to their children through initiation, mothers as for them, when they are witches, do not make too much effort to pass on their links to their children. These links are established almost automatically. Sorcery generally passes on from mothers to children. So then, before accepting a partner whose mother is a sorceress, you must make sure that that case is an exception, that is, a case in which the link for one reason or the other has not been established. And since you might not be able to confirm that, it is better to be careful.

 

2.3.1.11- Persons that are not delivered

 

You should not take the risk of accepting as partner people who are not delivered yet, because you do not know why they are still not delivered, and you do not even know whether they will be delivered, and if yes, when? Spiritual problems sometimes have distant origins, which are at times more hidden than you think. Flee from seduction!

 

I met so-called Christians, and even so-called pastors who go as far as getting married to mentally ill persons, under the pretext that they have also accepted Jesus, and that they could be delivered one day. There are even deceivers who willingly get married to mermaids, by claiming that they will deliver them. It is the case of this leader of a Pentecostal assembly, who voluntarily got married to a woman siren, who herself used to declare that she was a siren. That siren could not stand prayers, and used to fall down during almost every prayer meeting. All this did not prevent this demon leader from hardening his heart and marrying her.

 

Do not worry beloved when you see so-called Christians who are enlightened persisting up to that extent. They are demons, they are people that you cannot save. Since Hell is for them, they go there without worrying. And satan uses them in this way so as to seduce Children of God, to make Children of God believe that such follies are authorised. You should never fall into such a trap. That is why everything that frightens Children of God means nothing to them. According to them, we flee from sirens because we do not have the power to deliver them, or because we lack faith. And since they have too much power and a very great faith, they deliver them for us. Alleluia! Escape seduction! I also advise people who are not delivered yet, not to venture into marriage. It is better for them to do everything possible to first of all obtain their deliverance.

 

2.3.1.12- Demon prophets

 

As soon as someone comes to you and holds the language of the kind "God told me that you are my wife" or "God told me that you are my husband", know at once that you are in front of an agent of satan. You should never waste the least second to think about such rubbish. And if you were engaged to people who behaved in this way to have you, break up that link as quickly as possible. If you fall into the incantations of such sorcerers, you will regret it all your life. This is another element of discernment that I am giving you. Know that all these people who in order to get married go to their prey and tell them "God told me that you are my wife" or "God told me you are my husband", are real sorcerers. Keep away from these serpents. And for you who are already married, if it were after such comments that you got married, you would have already faced the facts that you got married to an agent of satan. If not, their deeds will be clearer to you as from now on.

 

Many of those who are currently divorced, got into marriage following this type of satanic prophecy: "God told me that you are my wife", "God revealed to me clearly that you will be my wife", "Several brothers and sisters had the confirmation", "Even some elders received confirmations that you are God's choice for me", etc. And when these serpents want to divorce, they forget that God had said, they forget that God had revealed clearly, they forget that several brothers and sisters had had the confirmation, they forget that even some elders had had confirmations that their choice was from God, etc.

 

I take advantage here to draw your attention to the fact that these sorcerers are capable through their incantations, to bring some brothers and sisters, and even at times some leaders, to receive confirmations that they would believe to have come from God. It is for this reason that the Lord has chosen not to intervene in the choice of spouse through dreams, visions, prophecies, revelations, and other confirmations as I have explained above. It is on discernment that the Church leaders must base their approval of the choices of spouse that are presented to them. And even for leaders who want to get married, you should avoid any haste.

 

All these people who ask for your hand in marriage by intimidating you with "God told me", "I had a revelation", "I had a dream", etc. are agents of satan. Understand beloved, that God cannot discuss the choice of your spouse with someone else as if your opinion does not count. Never let the incantations of these demons have effects on you.

 

I once followed this theatre that I would like to share with you. During one of the prayers meetings as Children of God organise every time, a sorcerer's apprentice stood up in the middle of the prayer, and began to prophesy. He got agitated as they really know how to do it, and shouted aloud: "Thus says the lord, the sister by this name will be my wife". And the sister who was being targeted by the incantation of that little serpent was present. She stood up immediately, and sent back the bullet while shouting aloud: "Thus says the lord, I will not be your wife". The monster was completely confused.

 

Although this sister had the courage to shut the mouth of this sorcerer, you must nevertheless understand that the way of doing it was not good. For if we are allowed to "answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes", we are not allowed to blaspheme. We must never take the name of the Lord in vain. You must therefore know how to shut the mouth to those serpents and thus cancel their incantations, but without falling into the trap of blaspheming before God. And once the Lord exposes these serpents as it was the case in this example, you expel them from the assembly without wasting a single minute.

 

2.3.2- Categories of persons to avoid

 

When I talk about the categories of persons to avoid, it has nothing to do with people that you must not get married to. I just want to draw your attention on the fact that such cases must be carefully examined before any consideration. I advise servants of God to be very careful, and to take all the possible precautions when they have to celebrate the marriages of which one of the partners belongs to these categories.

 

2.3.2.1- Widowers and widows

 

Before accepting to get married to a widower or a widow, you should take time to understand what happened in the first marriage. Things do not always occur as you think, or as you are being told. I know there are some real cases, that is, the cases of innocent brothers and sisters who had the misfortune to lose their partner. It is without fear that you can get married to such people. But you must make sure that it is a true case, before committing yourself. I also know that there are several doubtful cases, the cases of sorcery in which the second partner who is alive was involved. You must be very careful with such cases, if not you could be the next victim. Pastors must also be careful when they have to deal with marriages concerning widowers and widows, to examine the case very well before giving the go ahead for the celebration.

 

2.3.2.2- Men younger than women

 

It is not advisable for women to get married to men who are younger than them. The problem of insubordination of the woman and subordination of the man very often arises, and there are always strong probabilities that such marriages become an abomination in the sight of God, that is, a marriage in which there is inversion of role.

 

2.3.2.3- Older women

 

Men must not commit themselves to marriage relations with women older than them. It is a very great risk. This type of marriage is inadvisable. The danger is as we have just said, that of the insubordination of the woman, who even when she is younger than the man, does not find it too easy to submit herself. And to make a marriage, in which the spirit of Jezebel will reign, is simply to prepare oneself for Hell. Such marriages could succeed if and only if, a woman despite her being older could submit herself and recognise her position of woman.

 

2.3.2.4- Unmarried mothers

 

There are two categories of unmarried mothers to consider: widows and unmarried mothers, that is, women who had children in the world, without being married. The case of widows is much simpler, but that of women who had children in the world is usually a problem. And the problem often arises at the level of the children who are supposed to become your children, whereas the natural fathers are still alive, and can exercise at any time their parental rights on those children. They are generally cases that create a lot of problems to couples. You must avoid plunging yourself into such headache. Only commit yourself to such relations if you are sure that you will not find yourself in such a mess. It is the same thing with men who already have children. Women who want to marry them must take that into account. You should only accept a man who already has children if you are sure it will not cause you problems. Make sure that you are capable of managing the situation without it being a hitch to your spiritual freedom.

 

2.3.2.5- Girls whose mothers are opposed to the gospel

 

For similar reasons to those I have cited above, it is not always safe for the marriage when the mother of the woman is opposed to the Gospel. The influences coming from her are likely to weaken the stability of marriage from time to time. It is clear that true firmness from the woman can attenuate that, but the risk remains great.

 

2.3.2.6- Partners whose families are unbelievers

 

In a general way, do not venture into unbelieving families without discernment. Do not forget that when you get married to someone, you are also indirectly married to the family. And I am not teaching you anything new by telling you that the management of pagans is a real headache. They are often called to enter your houses, you are called to assist them from time to time, and to participate in many things that they do, and whether you like it or not, you will be exposed to warfare and conflicts linked to their attachment to worldly practices.

 

In the sub-title Marriage and Tradition, I raised some of the problems that Children of God who have unbelieving parents-in-laws, often face. You have amongst others the respect of pagan and ancestral tradition and customs, which is often totally baffling for brethren. Either during births, or certain celebration in the in-law's family, or during the death of the husband when the parents are unbelievers and rooted in tradition, the woman is called to undergo all sort of pressures and intimidations, forcing her to bow to demonic practices and abominable ceremonies into which these people plunge themselves each time such events come up. As a whole, the whims and requirements very often without meaning from unbelieving family are not likely to make your task easier.

 

2.3.2.7- Former agents of satan

 

Before taking or accepting somebody who has actively served satan in the past as a partner, or somebody who flirted with occultism, you must be very careful. If we can meet some true cases of people who actively served satan in the past, and who repented and obtained true deliverance, it is nonetheless true that in the majority of cases, the repentance of these people are most often a repentance of facade.

 

Keep in mind that several of those you call "former" Satanists, are nothing but true Satanists; and that many of those you call "former" agents of satan, are nothing but real agents of satan. You consider them former because they claim to have repented, and to have been converted. Do not be deceived at all. The majority of them are disguised wolves. Some are not converted and will never be converted, because they come into the midst of Children of God exclusively with the aim of harming and destroying them; and there they pretend to repent, and disguise as Children of God, while waiting for the opportune time to act.

 

Others are not delivered because they are not often honest when asked to confess their deeds so as to be delivered. Whenever they are given the chance to confess their deeds to be delivered, satan helps them to lie. Very often, they reveal some of the things they have done, but hide others. And under these conditions they will never really be delivered. And as long as they are not delivered, they will remain at the service of satan. You must therefore be very careful. Before considering any marriage with these "former" satanists, or these "former" agents of satan, take time to make sure that they have really become true Children of God. Never forget that marriage is a way of no return.

 

2.3.2.8- Former prostitutes

 

Before taking or accepting as partner somebody who prostituted herself/himself much in the world, know that you are likely to suffer the after-effects in marriage. One of the problems that some couples very often face, is that of some wild and abominable practices, that former prostitutes copied in their worldly follies, and still want to apply such in marriage. Many Children of God find themselves every time going to the pastors to complain either about the man, or about the woman, who takes pleasure only in dishonourable practices, and who wants at all cost to transform marriage into a field where they can continue with the pornographic practices which they were used to.

 

Whether you are a man or a woman, if your future partner had lived in the world in folly, make sure before choosing, that, that dirty life of the past, is well and truly something of the past. And if you are in doubt, it would be better not to venture with such partners. Do not run the risk of having preserved yourself from all filths before your marriage only to experience these filths but in marriage. It would be a great waste for you. Know once more that marriage is a way of no return. You are warned! May God be praised!

 

2.4- Other considerations

 

2.4.1- Age difference

 

We know conventionally, that in a normal couple, the woman is supposed to be younger than the man. But very often the question of age difference arises. What should be the age difference between the man and the woman? There is no definite age gap. It can go from few months to several years. But you must make sure that your wife is mature enough in order to better assume her responsibilities in the home. It is also important to remind that when a man takes as wife a very young girl, the problem of respect towards the woman arises very often. The Bible teaches us that a man must love his wife, respect her and consider her as being heirs together of the eternal life. If your wife has the age of your own daughter, you will find yourself every time treating her more as your daughter than as your wife, that is, with too little respect, and also too little consideration. This is contrary to what God expects from man. We cannot really talk of age difference as such, but in the same way that I talked about the problem of insubordination of the woman to the man to discourage marriage between a woman and a man younger than her, in like manner, I will talk about the problem of lack of respect towards the woman, so as to discourage marriages in which the man is very much older than the woman.

 

2.4.2- Level of studies of spouses

 

Should we take into consideration the level of studies of the spouses in marriage? Normally, the level of study should not constitute a problem. When we deal with true Children of God, this consideration becomes useless, since we do not need any level of study to serve God; we do not need any level of study in order to love God; we do not need any level of study in order to be accepted by God. And for this reason, among true Children of God, this problem is non-existent. A woman can therefore accept to marry a man who is less educated than her.

 

But when we still have to deal with carnal people who spend years in the Church of Jesus Christ without changing, it will not be advisable for women to get married to men who are less educated than them; this is because of pride. Education brings pride. The more we are educated, the more we are exposed to pride. Intellectuals are always driven by a certain pride and by a certain arrogance that only a great humility can overcome. And humility is what carnal people lack the most. As long as a woman is not broken, it is always with a certain contempt that she will look at men who are less educated than her. And as long as a woman despises her husband, the marriage will never stand. As women, you should therefore accept men less educated than you as husbands only on condition that you will submit yourself to them without letting superiority complex destroy you.

 

It is the same thing for men who want to get married to non educated women, or women who are much less educated compared to them. Only marry them if you are sure to love them and to grant them all the respect they deserve as your wives, without letting the complex of superiority destroy you. We met these kinds of couples in which intellectual men, driven by a high level of pride, are ashamed of their wives, and often withdraw to the hotels to receive their friends. There are even some who lock their wives up in the rooms when they have to receive their visitors. Never imitate such follies. If you are not ready to love a woman and grant her all her respect, do not marry her.

 

2.4.3- The opposition of the parents

 

One of the situations that we often face during the choice of spouse is the opposition of unbelieving parents. Most of the times, parents disagree with the choices made by their children. What can be done in such cases? If the parents are true Children of God, living in the truth, you need to submit without resistance to their choice. And if the parents are not Christians, you need to examine the reasons that urge them to oppose to your choice. If these reasons are founded, you should consider them. But if they are silly reasons, either related to their pride, or to their greed, or to their opposition to the faith, or to their racism or their tribalism, you should not take them into account. But as I have mentioned above, this is already an indication of the type of difficulty that you will encounter, once married, with your unbelieving family-in-law.

 

2.4.4- Premarital tests

 

One of the problems that the future couples are faced with now is premarital tests. With the abomination that has invaded the whole world, and the end time plagues ravaging the world, the future couples, even Christians, are no longer sheltered from certain contagions. Normally in the Church, one was never supposed to be exposed to this kind of problems. But the fact that many Christians before they believe lived an abominable life, and at times did not even go through a true repentance in order to be totally delivered from all past sicknesses, and the fact that many Christians are just Christians by name, make it in such a way that one can no longer feel secure, even in so-called Christians milieu. If therefore you are not sure of your future partner, it is better to do premarital tests, instead of avoiding the plagues of prostitutes all your life, just to be contaminated by the same in your own marriage. We have testimonies of born again Christians who caught AIDS instead in their own marriages, yet Christian marriages, celebrated in Christian churches. "He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"

 

Conclusion: Never marry someone as long as you are not very sure of who they are!

 

3- ENGAGEMENT

 

Engagement represents on the one hand the mutual promise of marriage or the ceremony that accompanies such agreement, and on the other hand the time laps between the promise and the marriage itself. It is this second definition that is usually retained, and this will be our concern in this teaching. Marriage is not a relationship like any other; it is a sacred commitment, a way of no return. God who knows it so well allowed this moment of reflection called engagement in order to grant men the opportunity to meditate over the responsibility awaiting them. The Lord permitted this moment so that the future couple could examine if they can really live for one another and with one another.

 

3.1- Can engagement be broken?

 

Engagement does not bind the engaged couple. It can therefore be broken up at any time if it were necessary, even up to a minute before the celebration of the marriage. Marriage requires reflection and even much reflection. And for that reason, God in His love always grant us the possibility to come back to reasoning and rectify our follies when we have a willing heart. The period of engagement should enable the future couple to meditate once again on the commitment they are about to make, for once the commitment is sealed, it becomes too late for reflection. I again emphasize on the fact that you can break up your engagement even up to a minute before celebration. Do not forget that: "Better late than never".

 

Several signs help the engaged couple to know whether life will be easy for them together or whether they can together make a good marriage. Amongst these signs we can cite problems faced during engagement, difficulties, disappointments, and the various moments of confusion that come up during engagement.

 

3.2- Problems faced during engagement

 

Beloved, this is an element of discernment that I would like to give you. If you encounter problems during engagement, whatever they are, you need to be careful and pull yourself together. Stop and think over again, for it is a clear indication that things are not right. It is another proof of God's love who always chooses to warn His children when they are about to fall into a trap, and in such a great trap as marriage. If those who had unsuccessful marriage look back, they will realise that the Lord gave them many of such warnings during engagement, but their hearts were not inclined to hear.

 

3.2.1- Internal problems

 

3.2.1.1- Quarrels and conflicts

 

If you find yourselves squabbling during your engagement, stop immediately your relationship, and put an end to the engagement. A marriage built on such foundation will never stand, I indeed say never. Know therefore, that God is not at the centre of your marriage project. Forget all what you believe to have received in the meantime as prophecies, dreams, signs, revelations, confirmations and others. Know that the fact of squabbling remains the main confirmation that you needed to be sure that your relationship is not the will of God. And if instead of listening to the voice of God and put an end to your engagement, you rather choose to stubbornly continue, you will regret it.

 

At times the so-called fiancés quarrel, even on common things. At times they argue over the phone to the point where one of them hangs up on the other. This is a clear sign that such a marriage will never stand. No matter who hangs up on the other, the result is the same. The person who is wise stops such engagement quickly without wasting time. The so-called asking-for-forgiveness which are going to follow, should on no account mask the truth, or cancel the revelation which God has just given you by such acts.

 

3.2.1.2- Differences of opinions

 

For a marriage to succeed, both partners should have the same vision of life, or they should commit themselves to have convergent ideas and points of view not wide apart from each other. If therefore during engagement, you realise a true disparity in your different points of view, if many things seem not to reconcile with you, if you find it difficult to agree on certain things, if you have a different concept on the management of marriage, and the management in marriage, you'd do better to stop the engagement. Marriage between two persons with each one clinging to his position would not work.

 

3.2.2- External problems

 

Sometimes during engagement, the parents of one or even both partners oppose the marriage, and this at times in a ferocious manner. In such cases, the fiancés must think about it. The Lord also speaks to us through elements such as these. At times also, it is your close relatives who expressed reservations as for the success of your union. No matter what reason they put forward to doubt the success of your marriage, you need to stop and think over it. The Lord often uses each of these elements to speak to us. Those who stubbornly persist and who move ahead like sheep without thinking and without understanding only hasten to their ruins. "For God may speak in one way, or in another, yet man does not perceive it." Job 33:14.

 

3.3- Difficulties

 

If you encounter unexplained difficulties during engagement, you must stop and think over it. For example: Either you lose your job during engagement, or you find yourself in accidents, or even attacked by unexplained sicknesses, at times all the odds fall on you. In all these cases you need to stop and think over.

 

3.4- Disappointments

 

The cases of disappointments must be treated with much rigour. Amongst these cases we have deceptions, unfaithfulness during the engagement, lies, etc. If you find yourself telling lies to your fiancé(e), or if you discover just a single lie on the part of your fiancé(e), you'd do better to stop that relationship before it is too late. And if your partner deceives you during engagement, and finds himself/herself in unfaithfulness, stop the engagement immediately without giving it any thought. Note that a marriage founded on deceptions and lies will never succeed. Do not fall into the traps of these foolish ones who catch their partner in adultery during engagement, and seduce themselves by saying that they will forgive and continue.

 

3.5- Moments of confusion

 

You find people who threaten to break up their engagement and later on come back to their decision to continue. There are also others who completely put an end to their engagement, and later reconcile and come back together. Know that this is just pure seduction. If you find yourself either ending or threatening to end your engagement, it is a proof that if that marriage were made, it would not succeed. Do not fall into the trap of going back to renew such a relationship. If at least once during your engagement, because of arguments or any other reason, you threatened to break up, just stop. Discouragement and moment of shrinking during engagement are very bad signs. When you yourself have doubts about your future marriage, when doubts envelop you during your engagement, do not expect to be preached the contrary of what you are feeling. Stop immediately.

 

3.6- Duration of engagement

 

There is no precise duration of engagement. It can go on from few weeks to some months, depending on several factors: How far do the engaged couple know each other? Are they in the same Assembly? How long have they been together in the same Assembly? etc. The duration of engagement also depends on how the pastors managed the period prior to engagement. If before disclosing the engagement, that is, if before declaring the future couple engaged, the pastors have taken time to do the basic work, some weeks of engagement should be sufficient. But engagement of short duration is only authorized for people who have been in the same Assembly for several years. Pastors must declare people as fiancés only after thorough examination and only after they have received from the Lord that the relationship they are about to authorize, is approved by God. What ever the case, you should avoid being in a hurry. "It is not good for a soul to be without knowledge, and he sins who hastens with his feet." Proverbs 19:2.

 

3.7- Managing engagement

 

The fiancés must not see each other regularly lest they fall into the sin of fornication. The fiancés, carried away by the love they have for each other, are usually very fragile and must be careful. Pastors must therefore watch in order not to give a green light to the engaged couple to do whatever they want, for satan can easily get them in his trap during that moment.

 

3.8- Engagement before conversion to Christ

 

Engagement made before conversion to Christ must not be taken into consideration in the Church. You know already that relationship made in the world are always built on wrong bases and bound to fail in most cases. If therefore people give their lives to Christ being already betrothed, you need to tell them to stop their engagement, and first of all spend enough time in the faith to discover what the walk with Christ is all about, and listen very well to the teaching on marriage, before re-engaging if they so desire.

 

3.9- Conclusion

 

Know that engagement is supposed to be the best part of the life of every individual. It is the moment of all the colourful dreams, it is the moment of all the best promises in the world, it is the moment of dreams of a small paradise on earth. It is the moment that we experience the summit of love. During this moment the future couple are supposed to feed only on praises and sweet words, each one being eager to prove to the other partner their full love, and bringing out all their qualities. If during this period of great dreams and projects, people find themselves instead in quarrels, arguments and others, what follow next becomes easy to foretell. The dream is simply becoming a nightmare and with that you need to stop the disaster on time.

 

3.9.1- Watch out for seduction

 

I knew a young sorcerer bearing the title of a prophet who went round teaching that a man of God must get married to his seventh fiancée. Each time he sees a beautiful sister, he takes her as his fiancée, abused her sexually, and abandoned her to take another one, until he gets to the seventh, who is assumed to be the one that he will marry. And to support their follies, these sons of the devil have invented a teaching which says that if two people are engaged, if they are sure to get married, they can sleep together, that is to say, live as married couple, without worrying, because that is not sin at all. That will only be a sin if these two people do not get to marriage and get separated.

 

3.9.2 - Sexual intercourse out of wedlock

 

I seize this opportunity to remind all those who are always ready to believe in these stupidities that all sexual intercourse apart from that carried out in the legal framework of marriage, is a sin. If I talk here of people who are ready to believe in rubbish, it is because, even if there are certain faults that do not appear like sin to us, sexual sins stand out clear and unique as sins that do not carry any doubt. Even unbelievers know what is called adultery and fornication. These sins constitute the most evident as sins. For demons to cause you to believe that these outstanding sins are no longer sins, and you believe in them, it is really surprising.

 

Understand then beloved, that every sexual act out of legal marriage, is a fault before God. That means, if you find yourselves in sexual relationship without being married, then you are committing a sin before God. And if you are married, and have sexual intercourse with another person other than your partner, you are committing a sin before God. When a sexual intercourse takes place between two unmarried persons, we talk of fornication. If in a relationship at least one of the partners is married, then we talk of adultery. Whether it is adultery, or fornication, both are sins. Therefore you should not fall into the trap of these demons who try to teach you that these sins are not called sins. Every sexual filth is a sin; whether it is fornication or adultery, or masturbation, or any other sexual filth. If it happens therefore that you commit one of these faults, you must quickly ask God for forgiveness and abandon it. The fiancés have no right to go one with another as if they were married. Being engaged does not mean being married. If the engaged sleep together before marriage, it is a sin.

 

There are satanic sects in which women are asked to prostitute themselves so as to "attract men in the church, and win them for the Lord". There are also others that say God has said "love one another", and hence ask the faithful to sleep one with another, including the faithful that are married. There are equally others that say God has said "multiply", and who plunge themselves into all sort of orgies and sexual abominations. I will not insist on such cases because no child of God can mistake such satanic sects for the Church of God. Every normal person knows the minimum of what God can ask man to do.

 

4- THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MARRIAGES

 

4.1- Legal marriage

 

For a marriage to be recognised by God, it must be legal, that is, celebrated by an authority recognised by God. There are three types of authorities recognised by God to validate marriages; these are the parents, the Registrars and the pastors. Therefore there are three forms of legal marriage: Marriage celebrated by parents, also called customary marriage, marriage celebrated by the civil authorities such as the Registrar, and the marriage celebrated by the Church. It is important to understand that occult groups do not constitute any of the three cited. Consequently, marriages celebrated in these occult groups constitute satanic links that need to be broken in the name of Jesus Christ. These marriages are not counted as legal before God.

 

4.1.1- Customary marriage

 

A marriage is declared customary when the parents of the man and those of the woman agree on the union of their children, and grant them their blessings. Depending on the countries, this is usually done through the exchange of some gifts, generally called dowry.

 

4.1.2- Civil marriage

 

Civil marriage takes place when a man and a woman freely decide to appear before a Registrar of Civil Marriages with some witnesses so as to validate their intention to live together.

 

4.1.3- Christian marriage

 

A Christian marriage is that uniting two Children of God, that is, two persons who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and who are baptised in water for the forgiveness of their sins, and who are baptised in the Holy Spirit. This marriage is celebrated by men of God, that is, by pastors and elders who have also accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and who are baptised in water and in the Holy Spirit.

 

If you made a so-called christian marriage, celebrated by a so-called man of God, who is not baptised in water and in the Holy Spirit, know that your so-called christian marriage is not considered before God. God does not recognise any man of God who is not baptized in water and the Holy Spirit. Know once more that all these so-called pastors and servants of God who are not baptised in water and in the Holy Spirit and who do not speak in tongues, are serving themselves and not God. God does not know them, and does not recognise them as His servants. Every servant of God must be baptised in water, must be baptised in the Holy Spirit and must speak in tongues. If you are in so-called churches led by men who do not meet up with these criteria, know that you are in the midst of unbelievers and not in Churches.

 

For a pagan, customary marriage alone is sufficient, civil marriage alone is also sufficient for them to be considered as married. But for a child of God, it is only the marriage celebrated by the Church which counts. They are free to get married by customary or by civil ceremony, but these two types of marriage do not make them married people before God. The only authority that matters for a Christian as far as marriage is concerned is the Church. And by Christians, I mean all those who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and who are baptised in water for the forgiveness of their sins, and who are baptised in the Holy Spirit. It does not therefore include those you call catholic Christians, or Christians of other religious sects that do not believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

 

4.2- Cohabitation

 

The fact that you live with a partner does not make you a married person, even though you may have children with your partner. There are countries that voted for abominable laws, inciting people to rebel against God. It is particularly the case of France, which adopted what they chose to call PACS (Civil Pact of Solidarity), allowing unmarried people to live as married and be considered by the authorities as married, and to benefit from the same advantages as the real married. As long as you have not been through one of the forms of legal marriage as we have just studied, know that you are not married. It is not because you have lived with a partner for a very long time that you can consider yourself married; and it is not because you have many children with a partner that you must think you are married. It is neither because a state has legalized your adulterous life that God will also validate it. Cohabitation, whether it is called PACS or whether it takes any other name, is an abomination before God. If you want to enter God's Heaven, you must comply with His laws. To that end, I would like to appeal to people who live in countries where marriage has completely lost its value. Do not learn the abominable laws that the nations vote today to mock God.

 

Abomination has enveloped the world in such a way that everything that dishonours God is very easily considered as right before men. This is so serious that Children of God who do Evangelism find some of these cases very difficult to handle. In those countries that have officially trample upon marriage, Children of God during Evangelism are often confronted with the cases of people who accept to surrender their lives to Jesus, but who have been living with their partners for several years, and have many children. These cases are so embarrassing that brethren often wonder whether they should consider these people as married or if they should ask them to separate.

 

Know that those people have never been married; they are simply living in sin. If they want to take their baptism, they must understand that they were prostitutes, and must separate immediately. They can consider marriage later if they want to. I therefore want this to be clear once and for all. Neither the length of time lived by two partners, nor the number of their children, no matter how many they might be, will ever make them married people. They are simply prostitutes. A woman who lives with a man without having been through any of the three forms of legal marriages we have studied is simply a prostitute before God. So, let women now understand very well, and not let themselves be seduced again by the number of children they have with their partners, or by the number of years they have already spent with the latter.

 

4.3- Fraud

 

4.3.1- The genuine false marriage

 

It happens at times that foreigners in irregular situation in a given country resort to false marriages so as to regularise their situations. This entails making arrangements with somebody who either has the nationality of the host country or who is a resident in the host country. They normally agree for a certain sum of money, in most cases, to make a false marriage, with the main objective of escaping from the caprice of the Immigration Service. Such type of arrangement also known as "unconsummated marriage", is simply fraud, and not marriage at all. When these two persons appear before the Registrar to sign their false marriage certificate, they each know very well that they are cheating, and that they will never live together as couple; and even those who accompany them are quite aware that they are accompanying frauds, and not future couple. They know very well that these two persons will never live together. This type of arranged marriage is therefore not a marriage and cannot be considered as such. It is simply and purely fraud. Hence, in such a case we can neither talk of marriage nor divorce. And if there is neither marriage nor divorce, then the problem of remarriage will never arise. The Children of God who made this kind of false marriage, must ask forgiveness from God for fraud.

 

4.3.2- The false genuine marriage

 

What is different on the other hand, is when someone wanting to regularize their situation, deceives another person by promising a true marriage, knowing that once married, and the immigration situation sorted out, they will seek divorce. Understand that this does no longer have anything to do with fraud, it is pure wickedness. And since the other partner is convinced of the fact that they are engaging in a true marriage, God considers it as marriage and no longer as fraud. Whoever does that is simply setting his own trap, the trap of his own wickedness. They are married and God considers them as married. If they divorce, they will account for that before God. In such a situation, the law on marriage, divorce, and remarriage applies. This means that the person has no right to divorce, and if for one reason or the other, they divorce, remarriage is out of question. If there are so-called children of God, who plunged themselves into such cruelty, they should make sure they repair the damage before God as quickly as possible. Know that you remain bound to the person you abandoned or the person you want to abandon.

 

Know that God is righteous, and in no way can He approve wickedness. To deceive somebody into marrying with the intention of separating from the person later, it is choosing to destroy the life of that person. God in His righteousness cannot approve of or leave unpunished such a degree of wickedness. The principle of God's righteousness is clear: "Whatever you do to men, just imagine that it was to you that the same thing was done. And whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them." Thus make an effort beloved, to put yourself each time in the shoes of the person towards whom you want to act wickedly, and you will easily understand what God thinks of your intention or your future action. So, before setting a trap to harm somebody, just ask yourself how you would feel if such a trap were set against you.


 

5- DOWRY

 

Dowry as it is practised in the world nowadays represents the goods given to the bride-to-be or to her family by the husband, and this by marriage contract. There are also some regions in the world that people practice but the contrary. But the Bible makes mention of that in the Old Testament, notably in the book of Exodus. "If a man entices a virgin who is not betrothed, and lies with her, he shall surely pay the dowry for her to be his wife. If her father utterly refuses to give her to him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins." Exodus 22:16-17.

 

When you read the other passages of the Bible where dowry is made mention of, like in Genesis 34:12 and in 1Samuel 18:25, you notice that in most cases, dowry practices stemmed more from common sense than from the law. Either it is the man himself who out of his generosity volunteered to pay dowry, or the parent of the virgin could choose not to ask for it. "Ask me ever so much dowry and gift, and I will give according to what you say to me; but give me the young woman as a wife." Genesis 34:12. "Then Saul said, "Thus you shall say to David: 'The king does not desire any dowry but one hundred foreskins of the Philistines, to take vengeance on the king's enemies.'" But Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines." 1Samuel 18:25.

 

With regard to the New Testament, no mention is made of dowry, the Lord having chosen to let the sense of generosity of men and the common sense take precedence over the law as a requirement. By so doing, the practice of dowry nowadays as a law, is no longer justified. Many people nowadays wrongfully use the example of the servant of Abraham in Genesis 24:50-53, so as to justify the practice of dowry. It is the contrary that comes out from this passage. This example was instead supposed to make us fight against the way dowry is being practiced today. Once more, I invite you to meditate very well on the word of God, and do not merely recite it like parrots without understanding anything. Let's read this passage together: "50Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, "The thing comes from the Lord; we cannot speak to you either bad or good. 51"Here is Rebekah before you; take her and go, and let her be your master's son's wife, as the Lord has spoken." 52And it came to pass, when Abraham's servant heard their words, that he worshiped the Lord, bowing himself to the earth. 53Then the servant brought out jewelry of silver, jewelry of gold, and clothing, and gave them to Rebekah. He also gave precious things to her brother and to her mother." Genesis 24:50-53.

 

We see first of all in this passage, the servant of Abraham, voluntarily and without any pressure, giving presents to Rebecca, and like wise to her brother and her mother. Secondly, we see him presenting to them gifts of his choice, and not gifts requested as is the practice today. Thirdly, letting Rebecca go with Abraham's servant was not related to any requirement, as can be read in verse 51. And the choice of the servant of Abraham to offer presents to the family was after the young lady was unconditionally authorised to leave.

 

I therefore call upon all those who twist the word of God, to be careful. Teach only what you understand and make an effort to keep silent when you do not understand the meaning of the word of God. After examining these passages, we therefore understand that the practice of dowry such as observed nowadays has no juridical value before God. As I have already said in the previous teachings, if you want to pay dowry, feel free. And when you choose to pay it, do not succumb to blackmail and compromise yourself before God. But know very well that you are not obliged to pay any dowry set up as law, when you want to get married. Also know that in the name of Jesus, you can and must break all the curses sent against you by dubious parents who want to turn their daughters into a business.

 

Let me end up by showing you how great the stupidity of the men of this generation is. Even if dowry were still to be observed and practiced according to the Lord's instructions in Exodus 22:16-17, it would only apply to virgins, that is, to young girls who have never known men, and not to those former prostitutes that are wrongfully wrapped in white gowns and veils during wedding ceremonies. While some parents are unable, rightly or wrongly, to watch over their daughters so that they should not prostitute themselves, other wicked and extremely greedy parents go as far as sending their daughters to prostitute themselves for them to have either money or the favour of potential predators. And when one day an unfortunate man falls on the remnant of the young lady, and wants to content himself with it, he is still asked to pay the dowry, instead of the parents of the young lady paying him for damages caused to his wife. And as if that were not enough, they sometimes ask for a dowry that leads the poor ignorant to get into debt. That is the world upside-down.

 

I encourage parents to abandon greed, and I also encourage the future couple not to submit themselves to unjustifiable blackmails and to whims which wrongly act as law. As another element of discernment, I would like to remind you that women who push their daughters into prostitution are witches.

 

6- MARRIAGE CEREMONIES

 

"Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever." 1John 2:15-17.

 

6.1- Rings

 

It is surprising to see the extent to which people have turned away from God today, to the point of putting into practice and causing to be accepted by all, a gospel found nowhere in the Bible: The adoption of a small circle of gold-coloured metal called "covenant ring" (borrowed from French word "alliance"), (commonly known in English as "wedding ring"), the requirement of best men and/or maid of honour, of wedding dresses, wishes cards, gifts, and other follies are a great illustration.

 

Where do these rings come from? Where were you told that you need them to get married? Each time I ask this question, those who look for passages to deceive themselves tell me that when the wife of Isaac was being sought, a ring was taken. Let me send you back to Genesis 24, reread the passage and tell me in which verse you have found a piece of gold-coloured metal called wedding ring, or even which served as wedding ring. I invite the true Children of God to run away from seduction and madness. Do not love the world or the things in the world. All these rings that you wear, no matter what name you attribute to them, come from the world, and not from God. Who told you of a "covenant ring" when you have to get married? And even if we were to speak in term of "covenant ring", would it be on a finger? Who told you that a covenant is worn but on a finger? True covenant, if we were to speak in term of covenant, would be on your heart and not on a finger.

 

When your covenant is on your finger, you can smack your wife, shout at her, treat her as an object, ill-treat her like a rag, and even find from time to time the occasion to be unfaithful. Whereas when your covenant is on your heart, you watch over your wife, you respect your wife, and you cherish her. When the covenant of a woman is on her finger, she can rebel at will, she can show herself rebellious, she can feel free to shout at her husband, and even to prostitute herself, as some do. Whereas when this covenant is on her heart, she is submissive to her husband, watches over her children, and honours God in her marriage.

 

When I ask those ignorant who wear rings why they wear them, some say it is to prove to people that they are married. Who told you that you need a piece of metal on the finger to prove that you are married? In which Bible do you find that? Some blind pastors tell you that they wear these pieces of metal on their fingers so that young sisters in the church should not lust after them. A real madness! Do you think that if a sorceress wants to lust after you it is a piece of metal that will prevent her from doing so? Go and ask all those pastors and Christians who have already fallen into the trap of adultery why the rings did not prevent agents of satan from trapping them. Come to your right mind beloved, and pull yourself together while it is still time. Do not find every time false ideas to support and justify your folly. Stubbornness will never help you to advance with the Lord.

 

Stop deceiving yourself with the satanic rings which you call covenant ring. A piece of metal should not become a covenant to you. If you really have faith in a piece of metal, to the point of thinking that it can help you to better accept yourself as married, or to be recognised by others as married, you are simply an idolater. If you believe that a piece of metal can prevent the agents of satan from lusting after you, this simply means that the piece of metal has become a talisman to you. You are simply an idolater. It is purely and simply idolatry. If instead of putting your faith in Jesus Christ you put it but in a piece of metal, you are an idolater. Run away from seduction, run away from madness, run away from idolatry!

 

6.2- Wedding dresses

 

Christians of today have really lost their mind. They copy all that satan does, without thinking. They put into practice all the instructions of satan, without questioning themselves. Where do wedding dresses come from? Who has prescribed these things? In which Bible do you find all that? These are as many follies which make marriage celebration too heavy and costly for the poor people who desire to get marry. And since all have abandoned the Bible and no one reads the word of God any longer to verify the teachings, they put into practices even things that are completely ridiculous. In order to get married, a special dress is needed for the woman, and a special dress for the man. A woman needs to have a long white dress and a long veil. Even those witches, who never agree to cover their heads in the presence of God, cover their heads on the wedding day. A real proof that these Jezebels only do what pleases them, and never what God wants.

 

What is again really ridiculous and funny, is the fact that even people who already have children, and even partners who were already living together, and former prostitutes, also plunge themselves into the purchase or renting of special dresses, with all sparkling white dresses, to testify thus against themselves that before living their dirty lives, they knew very well what the Lord expected from them. And even those prostitutes who only wear but trousers today, and who vehemently detest long skirts and decent clothes, wear long dresses on that day. And for some women, their wedding day is the only day they wear a dress which exceeds their knees. You are deceiving yourselves! But do not forget that you will render serious accounts to God. You will not escape the judgement of God, if you do not repent.

 

6.3- Wastage

 

People of satan will never stop surprising us. Somewhere I taught on wastage, and somebody had the courage to contest the teaching by taking the example of Abraham in Genesis 24. He was attempting to make us understand that when Abraham sent his servant to take a wife for his son Isaac he also made some wastage. Where did Abraham make wastage? What wastage can you accuse Abraham of? Reread this passage and tell me where you find wastage. With this, I can only send you back to the teaching on "Discernment", for you to understand once more that the people of satan are so corrupted in mind, so much so that they never understand the meaning of the word of God, even when the teaching is not complicated. They have in them a spirit which fights God, which fights the word of God, and which fights true servants of God. They are only there to contest, and do not even seek to understand.

 

Marriage celebration has become a source of all kind of wastage today. You need a whole fortune to hire great and sumptuous halls, to print luxurious wedding invitation cards, one needs to rent special cars, exceptional dresses are needed, one needs to spread rice everywhere, etc. With the heart full of lusts, they have made of wedding ceremonies a true competition nowadays. It has become a real race in search of vanity. Every person wants people to say that his/her wedding ceremony was the best. What is more revolting is the extent to which so-called Christians have become extravagant. They are more extravagant than the worldly people.

 

You even find some, who spread their wedding ceremonies over several countries, that is, who start the wedding ceremonies in one country and complete them in another country. A way of mocking very well at God, a way of portraying that they have enough money, and especially that they are free to waste this money with impunity, without any concern. Of this number you find demons who claim to be Christians. Just to prove to the world that they have never been Christians, not only do they feel at ease in this madness, but they get into debt and push others into debts, just to display their pride before the world, and make for themselves a name.

 

If at least they wasted money because they had much, it would have been more understandable. They feel up the measure of their folly by getting into debt and begging everywhere, by making collections everywhere and by inviting all those who are ready to offer them gifts, to convert these gifts into money, all that to satisfy their pride, to make themselves seen, and cause people to speak about them. The organisers of such abominable feasts have all possible tactics to collect as much money as possible. They involve the maximum number of people in the organisation by associating them to the various tasks, and by granting them different responsibilities that will stir them to be involved the more, to spend money without complaining. And woe to you if you tell them that they are not Christians; they will stone you to death. For them, they are also serving God like us, and they even serve Him better than we do. May the Lord be praised! Their madness had to be so visible, so that all those who have eyes to see can see, and all who have ears to hear should hear.

 

There are even churches where they impose on the future couples a fixed sum of money that must be acquired before they agree to organize their wedding. Surprising thing, the Bible is there, and everyone who knows how to read can read it. And many churches today are filled with intellectuals, but all this madness is being taught and practised freely. Know beloved that marriage is not a ceremony, but a life. To waste money in order to organise abominable feast will be of no use to you. The Lord calls us to sobriety. For you who fear God, do not plunge yourselves into wasting money as the children of this world do. They are ignorant and blinded by satan. Do not imitate them. If you have what to eat, share with those who have nothing, and God will bless you. Do not imitate the fools who plunge themselves into wastage whereas their brethren die of hunger. Do not imitate those vain persons who think that by organising great feast, they will also enter into the circle of the rich of the earth. Do not imitate them. They will be accountable to God. It is because they cannot make for themselves a name before God that they try to make for themselves a name before men.

 

6.4- Organised theft

 

Nowadays, sorcerers' pastors have turned wedding ceremonies into a real organised theft. Every time there is a wedding, they motivate the future couple to organise great ceremonies and invite as many people as possible. During these ceremonies, through words of seduction, they invite people to step forward and offer great gifts to the couple in cash and in kind. The guests (relatives and friends) of the married couple all rise up and go forward to deposit all their gifts and all their cash donations, generally in envelopes, believing to be giving them to the married couple. Once the wedding ceremony is over, these sorcerers' pastors collect all the wedding gifts and share them amongst themselves, giving nothing to the married couple. These serpents tell the married couple that all what was given was an offering to God. They even open envelops containing wishes cards addressed to the couple, since they know that some people like to put their money instead in the wishes cards that they will give to the married couple. And when they find money in these cards, they take it.

 

After dividing the spoil, they hand some wishes cards over to the married couple, and destroy the other cards, together with the small notes on which people specified what they had given to the couple. They do that to prevent the couple from ever knowing what was given to them. This is particularly embarrassing to the couple who end up never knowing who gave them what. And the givers on their part wait in vain that the married couple should write to them to thank them. They will certainly think that the couple are ungrateful, and incapable of saying thank you.

 

As their brother Judas was doing behind Jesus by stealing every time money from the money bag, these sorcerers spend their time today stealing both God's money and that of the poor faithful. It is really sad! And they are plucky when they divide the gifts and the money of the married couple. Some even encourage pagans to come and celebrate weddings in their halls, so that they should steal their money and their wedding gifts. At times these sorcerers find themselves quarrelling during the division of the stolen spoils. The main thief called the main pastor, try to obtain the bigger portion of the spoil, and the assistant thieves called assistant pastors, demand a fair sharing, and generally, they separate in quarrels. So, this is how agents of satan have transformed what is supposed to be the temple of God into dens of robbers. They blaspheme God and cause the gospel of Jesus Christ to be slandered.

 

I call on all these pastors thieves to repent, and to stop stealing gifts intended for the married couple. They should understand that if they do not give back all the money and all the gifts of the married couple that they have already stolen, they will not escape from Hell.

 

6.5- Gifts

 

Marriages have also become an opportunity of greed for the married couples, who use this as a pretext to collect money and gifts, including gifts coming from sorcerers, from agents of satan, and from other enemies of God. Run away from greed, run away from begging, run away from avarice, and escape all forms of lust. The reason why many people organise great ceremonies nowadays, is to collect the maximum of presents and gifts of all kinds. Covetousness has completely filled the hearts. And for this, during each wedding ceremony now, gifts handing ceremonies have been created. "Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, "The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously"?" James 4:4-5.

 

Do not forget that there is a price for this lust. Many of these gifts that you receive are poisoned gifts that agents of satan give you, so as to destroy your marriage. There are gifts on which they make great incantations so as to harm you. And since you are the one who open doors to them, due to your lust, you cannot escape it. Therefore do not be surprised when at times you find yourself in situation you cannot actually understand, or even explain. The Lord is calling us to contentment. Run away from the lust of life, and learn to be content with what God has put at your disposal.

 

"Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." 1Timothy 6:6-10.

 

6.6- Best men

 

The fact that Children of God spend time listening to fables in assemblies instead of reading the Bible themselves creates a lot of problems, including problems that make no sense at all. One of the preoccupations of the future couple today, is what they call best men and / or maid of honour. At times they argue to the point of ending up in disagreement. You want to imitate the worldly people, don't you? Who has prescribed best men for you when you want to get married? Who told you that you need the so-called best men for marriage? You copy the world without thinking. The world has become the light of Christians. Come back to the word of God and flee from madness while it is still time. Understand very well that you do not need what you call best men, in order to get married. Leave the world to the worldly.

 

6.7- Distraction

 

Wedding ceremonies have become the subject of all possible distractions nowadays. The future spouses think about nothing else, but spend all the little time they have arguing over futilities. Hours and days are wasted to organise vanity. They spend all their time over the phone arguing about the number of guests and the names of guests; arguing about the quality and the number of tickets to be printed, the printing press that will do the printing, the uniforms and the details of the programmes, the choice and colour of bridesmaids dresses, and that of grooms men, etc. And all of these take hours, days, weeks and even months. That is the extent to which satan has rendered man stupid.

 

At times, the future couples argue about these futilities up to the point of quarrelling. Instead of spending time before God seeking His face and preparing their eternity, the foolish spend time organising vanity. And the zeal, with which they prepare these programmes of vanity, is the same zeal with which they quarrel as soon as they are already in marriage, and it is with this same zeal that they organise divorce. All this simply because their marriage was not founded on the Lord Jesus Christ, but on folly and vanity. Many plunge themselves into debts in order to celebrate their wedding; and immediately after the wedding, misery begins to reign in the home. They prepare more a useless feast than they prepare their eternity, they invest more on useless ceremonies than on their salvation, on the meeting with the Lord.

 

After the wedding they plunge themselves into what they call "honey moon". It is so much in fashion today that, some of the so-called Christians reserve even hotels to spend their "honey moon". This is an additional element for you to recognise those who know the Lord, and those who do not know Him. Each one is working hard for his eternity. "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:21. "If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory." Colossians 3:1-4.

 

6.8- The celebration of the marriage

 

Before dealing with this point, I will first take some time to explain the difference between the blessing of a Christian marriage and the celebration of a marriage.

 

6.8.1- Difference between blessing and celebration

 

A question that very often arises concerning the case of polygamous brothers, is that of knowing whether they can be blessed in the Assembly. As far as blessing is concerned, do not forget that the validity of any legal marriage celebrated in the world suffers no dispute in the Church. This means that, whether it concerns the polygamous or monogamous couples, when people who legally got married in the world later believe in Jesus, their marriage is recognised and accepted in the Church as legal. When pastors choose to bless them, this has nothing to do with marriage celebration.

 

Celebrating a marriage, that is, declaring officially two people married, is different from blessing Children of God already married. Therefore, once a polygamous accepts the Lord Jesus as Saviour together with his wives, and all get baptised, they all become Children of God and are entitled to the same blessings as all the other brothers and sisters in the Assembly. They take part in all aspects of the Assembly's life. Since they came to the Assembly already married, there is no more marriage celebration to be made. It only depends now on the pastor or the Church to bless this couple, as it is done with other couples who got married before believing in God. In this case, it is simply about the blessing of the couples, and not about marriage celebration. As for the marriage, it had already been made and validated by God. The Church does nothing but only takes note of it and approves of it.

 

6.8.2- Warning

 

As far as marriage celebration is concerned, know that the Church can on no account and under no circumstances celebrate a polygamous marriage, and the Church can on no account and under no circumstances, celebrate a mixed marriage, that is, a marriage between a Christian and an unbeliever. And with regard to blessing, know that the Church can on no account and under no circumstances, bless a mixed marriage, that is, a marriage between a Christian and an unbeliever. To bless a marriage in the Church in which one of the partners is a believer and another one an unbeliever is an abomination in God's sight.

 

Do not imitate what sorcerers pastors do around you. In order to attract the crowd with the aim of collecting money and gifts, all means are good for them. When they have no other false marriages to celebrate, they create other occasions, and organise each time great feasts of blessing of marriages which according to them had not been blessed yet, and do not hesitate to bless even couples of Christians with unbelieving partners. Generally, when one of the partners attends their church from time to time, it becomes an opportunity for them to exploit. They then encourage the partner of their church to convince the unbelieving partner to accept the church to bless their marriage. They use the opportunity to organise a great feast, and each great feast for them is always an occasion to collect enough money. I tell you again, those demons carry out their ministry very well, and faithfully serve their master satan; do not imitate them. You should also exercise your ministry faithfully and serve your Master Jesus Christ with total submission to His word.

 

I found myself recently rebuking some hard-hearted people who went to celebrate one of such follies that they chose to call Christian marriage. The woman was attending their assembly, a clan church under the Pentecostal denomination; the husband was a man who did not want to hear about the so-called revived churches, and who remained in this branch of Catholicism called Presbyterian Church. And the demon pastor of the so-called Pentecostal church had convinced his faithful of the "merits" of the blessing of their marriage in the church, and this faithful also convinced her Presbyterian unbelieving husband. Those two partners who have been living together for years, had therefore agreed to let their marriage be blessed in that clan church, called Pentecostal. The feast was so grandiose that wedding dresses had to be worn, and all the other various ceremonies that you can imagine were carried out, without forgetting what they call wishes cards. Let me remind you that immediately after the blessing of this marriage in a so-called Pentecostal church, the husband had to go back to his Presbyterian sect. And those hardened people that I was rebuking, were trying to resist me by proving that the Presbyterian sect was also a good church as theirs. A way of recognizing that they also were only Catholics who took the name of Pentecostal church. More and more, they are no longer ashamed of admitting the fact that they are Catholics hiding under the mantle of Pentecostal church.

 

6.8.3- Who can celebrate a marriage?

 

Every true elder of the Church can celebrate a marriage, and any other brother who has received authority to do so, can celebrate a marriage. Be careful therefore with all these large satanic structures regrouping mother and daughter churches, and packed with several pastors and other elders, but in which there are people designated to celebrate all marriages. This means that, each time a marriage is to be celebrated, you must wait for this regional or super pastor "marriage specialist", who alone has the right to celebrate marriages. The other pastors and elders, even though appointed by the structure itself, have no right to celebrate a marriage. When brethren in the assembly that they are leading want to get married, they are powerless; they must wait for their god of marriage to come.

 

And usually this god of marriage makes himself so important, that he often keeps people waiting for months. He usually has a diary well filled; you know that these civil servants called pastors, stick today more strictly to diaries than managers of worldly companies. They also have offices and secretaries, and have an organization and a flow chart at times more complex than those of worldly companies. Many of these lords of marriages even request payments, which at times are very expensive. When a child of God is to get married, not only is he completely ruined with all the satanic ceremonies imposed on him, but he also needs to find an important sum of money in order to get the demon specialist of marriages to come and curse his marriage. And when the sum of money that you offer to this lord does not satisfy him, he sits on your marriage project, and gives priorities to those who pay well. And there you will wait again for several other months, the time to collect enough money to satisfy the demon. This is how many of these satanic clubs that you call churches operate. If you are in such clubs come out immediately while it is still time.

 

I advise servants of God never to celebrate a marriage unless they know the future couples very well. Marriage being so delicate as we have seen, it is very important on the one hand not to participate in the sins of people, and on the other hand not to caution the errors of Children of God. It is therefore important, and even very important, for the person who wants to celebrate a marriage, to know very well each one of the two spouses. You should therefore know that every true elder can celebrate a marriage. And if there is no elder where you are, an elder from else where can come and celebrate the marriage, if not authority can be granted to another mature brother, to do it. Do I still need to remind you that no woman has the right to celebrate a marriage? I explained to you very well in the teaching on elders, that in the Church of Jesus Christ, there are no women elders. No woman can exercise a ministry of authority in the Church of Jesus Christ. No woman can therefore celebrate a Christian marriage.

 

But in the church of satan, and in the assemblies of demons, just as we have studied very well in the teaching on elders, there are Jezebel elders, that is, women pastors, women evangelists, women teachers, etc. Understand that satan and his agents are only there to oppose God. Do not fall into their traps. Those women that occupy the positions of authority in churches are all witches; I have already told you this. Do not allow witches to celebrate your marriages. You are warned. May the Lord be praised!

 

6.9- Conclusion

 

The Church has fallen into the great seduction of satan, to the extent of literally following the worldly prescriptions. The Lord says in Matthew 5:13-14 "You are the salt of the earth; …You are the light of the world. The people of God instead say: "No Lord, it is the world that is our light. It is the world that will show us how to walk and how to live. The model of the world is the best for us". If you believe to be of the Lord, turn to Him while He can still receive you.

 

7- BEING READY FOR MARRIAGE

 

To treat the men of today according to the stupidity that animates them, I chose to treat this subject "being ready for marriage", rather after wedding ceremonies. This reflects the degree of folly in which many find themselves, and also the degree of ignorance and the degree of seduction in which many Children of God find themselves and are caught in the trap of satan and his agents, by getting inside the marriage itself before they begin to reflect on what marriage really is. Most often, it is after the wedding that many begin to ask themselves whether they are ready for marriage. You even find foolish pastors who bless marriages and long after that when problems arise among the couples, they tell them that they were not ready for marriage, or that it was not the will of God.

 

Before thinking of marriage, before praying to meet a partner, one must first ask this question: "Am I ready for marriage?" It is therefore important to sit down first and seek to understand the meaning of marriage, meditate deeply on the teaching on marriage, and weigh the cost before committing oneself. It is a real danger to allow oneself to be solely carried away by sexual desires. Know that after the fleeting sexual pleasures, begin the difficulties of marriage life, difficulties that are unfortunately not fleeting.

 

Being ready for marriage is an extremely important element. Since God is against divorce and against remarriage, every person before committing themselves to getting married must make sure they are ready to bear all the responsibilities related to marriage and to bear the many difficulties including the unforeseen surprises and frustrations. Marriage is not a joke, it is not a place of leisure and pleasure. Marriage is a life, a cross. It is the school par excellence of self-denial. Marriage is a prison that is not often called by its name. And as you know that the very nature of prison is the loss of freedom, also know that getting married is to give up voluntarily and totally one's freedom. Every person therefore, before committing themselves to getting married, must be conscious of this fact and so prepare consequently.

 

The woman who is thinking of marriage must make sure that she is ready to submit herself to a man in all things, even when she is not happy. She must make sure that she is ready to serve a man as her lord. The man who is thinking of marriage must make sure that he is ready to love a woman as himself, to watch over her, to bear her, and to take care of her as a father takes care of his child, and just as the Lord takes care of His Church.

 

8- LIFE IN MARRIAGE

 

Life in marriage is certainly the most difficult part. When all the dreams and all the projects of marriage have gone, when the follies of engagement have passed, then we are faced with the reality. Many are those who, from the first days, start regretting and wondering why they got married. This shows that happiness is not in marriage, but instead in the fear of God. As for you, beloved, who are not married yet, do not think that you are unfortunate. Rejoice instead and make the most of your freedom to serve the Lord. And for you who are already married, and who are regretting, this is no longer the time to regret. Regretting would not be the right thing to do; you would simply be getting discouraged at the foot of a mountain that you must climb. The only thing that you have to do now is to look at the glory of the Lord that awaits the overcomers, and put on the amour of God that will make you stand firm till the end. "But he who endures to the end shall be saved." Matthew 24:13.

 

8.1- Discoveries - unpleasant surprises

 

This is one of the questions that brethren asked us during a conference: "Is the fact that the engaged couple are not allowed to spend nights together before getting married not a problem? Very often, once married, one finds oneself faced with discoveries, and with "unpleasant" surprises. At times one realises the very first night that one of the partners snores, or that there are some abnormalities preventing or hindering the sexual intercourse, etc. At times also, it is gradually that one finds out that one of the partners has some abnormalities. Some of these abnormalities are of accidental origin, others are provoked or hereditary; still others are the result of certain diseases of one of the partners. What can one do in order to avoid such surprises?"

 

Beloved, know first of all that the Lord is absolutely against any form of disorder. Let us examine together the question of these brethren. If the engaged couple were allowed to spend nights together before getting married, with the aim of discovering each order in order to avoid "surprises", what would this imply? This would imply that after those nights of tests, if the result is not conclusive, the one who seems unsatisfied, would save themselves by abandoning the other person in total confusion; and this would give people the signal that man is not different from a fruit that can be tested before being purchased, or even a car which its buyer is often free to test before buying, or even a garment which one is free to try on before buying. Such a signal would be extremely bad. Man was made in God's image, and cannot be treated like an object.

 

Such questions once more help us to understand how selfish human beings are, and how self-centred men are; they seek only their own interest, and think only in term of self. Understand that when you accept a person, you must love them as they are, with all of their beauty and weaknesses. God will never allow you to go from one partner to another, so as to taste and test everything in order to find the angel of your lust. You must put up with your partner's weaknesses: That constitutes part of marriage, and of the cross to bear, as well as the tribulations of the flesh that you must bear. Do not be deceived at all. God will never give you an angel for partner. Whoever you are, whatever you do, and wherever you go, you will never find a partner that satisfies your selfish desires by a hundred percent.

 

8.2- Satanic practices

 

In order to mock and provoke the anger of God the more, satan has plunged himself into all sort of dirt and impurity, and into all sort of possible orgies since he was driven out of Heaven by God. He knows that his time is short, and he knows that Hell is reserved for him for all eternity. In his errors, in addition to the demons that he had already misled, he also misleads men who fall into his traps. And so the abominable sexual practices which should be practiced only in the occult world have been transported into the midst of men. These practices are so widespread that some wild fellows copy them, in order to contaminate and defile marriage.

 

We met some perverted demons who claim to be Christians, who contest every teaching on marriage in which the teacher calls on Children of God to watch out and behave as men in their sexual relationship and not as the abominable. They revolt each time they listen to such teachings, and contest them. These constitute the many elements that help you to recognise the agents of satan. They only find their pleasure in that which is monstrous and abominable.

 

Hebrews 13:4 tells us, "Marriage is honourable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge." Know that, not only will God severely punish adulterers, that is, those who being already married go after another partner, he will equally punish, with as much rigor as possible, the abominable, and all the dogs who use marriage as a cover to plunge themselves into all satanic sexual practices. "But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie." Revelation 22:15.

 

I thus insist once more on reminding you Children of God, that you should not fall into the traps of imitating dogs and other demons who only find their pleasure in abnormal sexual relationships. If before getting married you had plunged yourself into pornography and all its vices, you need to seek deliverance, and make sure you do not transport your satanic practices into marriage. And if you have partners who only enjoy themselves in such animal practices, you must resist them. If they do not want to change, inform your pastors so that they call them to order. If after the counsel of the elders they do not want to change, point it out again so that they are expelled from the Assembly. If you find such a case, know that you got married to serpents, and not to Children of God.

 

As we have studied very well by examining the teachings on spiritual warfare, the only sexual intercourses that God approves, that is, those that can on no account constitute sin and serve as open doors to satan, are those practiced within the legal framework of marriage. And even within the legal framework of marriage, sexual intercourses are sin and constitute open doors if they are similar to purely satanic practices. Know very well that a normal sexual intercourse according to God is a sexual intercourse between two persons of opposite sexes. Also know that for a sexual intercourse between two persons of opposite sexes to be a normal intercourse, it must really be sexual as its name indicates, that is, an intercourse between two sexes, or in other words, a contact between two genitals.

 

Hence, any intercourse or contact between a sex and another thing, or between a sex and another part of the body, cannot be accepted before God as being sexual intercourse. All these forms of intercourse are abnormal, that is sin, even within the framework of marriage. So, married people can only escape from open doors caused by sexual sins if and only if they honour God each time in their intercourse, by avoiding all dishonourable practices, and all other abominable and purely satanic practices into which many plunge themselves at times. Marriage is not a green light for madness. Any deviation is a sin before God, and constitutes an open door to satan.

 

God did not make a mistake by creating the man and the woman with different sexes. It was not also a mistake on His part to call each and every part of the body by a different name. Therefore, sex cannot take the name of another part of the body, and no other part of the body should take the name of sex, and should never be confused with sex. While the married couple must not defile their marriage bed with adultery, (unfaithfulness), they also need to watch out so that they do not plunge themselves into all those satanic practices and other sexual orgies that cause their marriages to be one of those rejected by God.

 

Even when marriage is well lived, God still considers it defiling, as we read in Revelation 14:4. "These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb." Marriage in itself is only a filth tolerated by God. So do not fall into the trap of making it the more defiled. That will not be tolerated.

 

During the teachings, we met people who interpreted Hebrews 13:4 as meaning that no friend or relative could sleep on the couple's bed. According to them, when God says that marriage should be honourable among all and the marriage bed undefiled, it meant that no other person could sleep on the bed already used by the married couples. I explained to them that God was not mindful of the piece of wood on which people often sleep. If you are also among those who understand this verse in this manner, understand as from now that the bed mentioned in Hebrews 13:4 has nothing to do with the pieces of wood on which you put a mattress to sleep. The marriage bed represents the life which the couple has to live. God is calling on the married couple to escape all forms of defilement.

 

8.3- Children that do not belong to both partners

 

The management of children that do not belong to both partners is also usually a serious problem in marriage homes. When one or both partners had children before marriage, their management very often creates problems. When the child or the children belong to the woman, we find ourselves in the following scenarios:

 

- Either these children do not respect their mother’s husband since he is not their biological father,

- Or it is the biological father who, if he is still alive often thinks he can pass through his children to cause confusion in the home,

- Or it is the husband who shows no concern for the children, and does not get involved in their education,

- Or it could be the woman who manages the children as her personal belonging, by refusing her husband every parental rights over the children. All of these create uncomfortable atmosphere in the home.

 

When the child or the children belong to the man, it is generally a similar disorder, which builds up:

 

- Either the children do not respect the woman since she is not their biological mother,

- Or it could even be their biological mother, who, if she is still around, set her children up against the woman of the house,

- Or it is the woman, who mistreats the children since they are not hers,

- Or it could be the husband who forbids the wife to have any right of correction over the children;

 

There are even cases where the partner who has the children mocks the other partner who has none, and all this only result in destabilizing the home. And when each person in the couple has his/her child or children, there will always be problems. Besides the possibilities I have just cited, the children of one complain of being ill-treated, compare to the children of the other partner, etc. You now understand why in the teaching on the choice of spouse, I classified unmarried mothers and unmarried fathers under those cases that create problems. But once in the marriage you have no more choice, you only have to act and find appropriate solution to protect the unity of the couple.

 

What must be done in this case? First of all, both partners must be conscious of the fact that if their marriage fails, they will give account to God. Then, they must understand that it is up to them to do everything they can to have a successful marriage, because eternal life will depend on that. For that reason, they must agree on the management of those children, if they can manage them, and if it turns out that they cannot manage them, they must find them a place outside their home.

 

8.4- Persons you lodge in your home

 

Every person that wants to live in your home, whether they are the children of the man or of the woman, or friends, or brothers, or sisters, or other members of the family, or any other person, must submit to the pace of your life. This means that if you fear the Lord they must also fear the Lord. If they are not ready to submit themselves to your conditions, they have no place in your home. In the couples where the woman fears God, the husband must never accept any person in the house without the consent of his wife. This means that the Christian husband should never take upon himself the responsibility for lodging a person in their house without the agreement of his wife, if she fears God. Know that women who fear God have a lot of discernment, and can help you to better filter people to accept in your homes.

 

Be careful! Before accepting to accommodate people in your home, make sure they are not agents of satan, who will not through incantations lure one of the partners into adultery and hence ruin your home. When you accommodate agents of satan, if they are women, they will push the husband into adultery, and if they do not succeed in dragging the man into adultery, they will do everything possible to set the wife up against her husband, and cause her to be rebellious. And if they are men, they will seduce the woman into adultery. You should therefore be very careful. Many marriages have been ruined because of these types of errors. You also have to examine very well the cases of children you want to accommodate. If they are little wizards, they will break your homes. With their satanic powers they set you up one against each other, create conflict in your midst, and you end up hating one another and breaking up. Agents of satan are extremely dangerous, whether they are children or adults. Once you grant them the least opportunity, they destroy you. Never accept people in your home without discernment.

 

8.5- The responsibility of the woman

 

The responsibility of the woman in the marriage is well summarised in the following passages:

 

Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Saviour of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Ephesians 5:22-24.

 

Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. Do not let your adornment be merely outward, arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel, rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror. 1Peter 3:1-6.

 

Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Colossians 3:18.

 

The older women likewise, that they be reverent in behaviour, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things, that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed. Titus 2:3-5.

 

The success of a marriage depends first of all on the woman. Under normal circumstances, when a woman respects her position in the home, the marriage succeeds. When a woman is submissive as the word of God says, marriage can only succeed. I am talking here in terms of normal circumstances because there are cases in which the submission of the woman yields no fruit. In a couple where the man is a sorcerer, and wants to take his wife along with him in Hell, no matter how well the woman submits herself, as long as she does not disown God to follow that devil in Hell, nothing can work. In such cases, the woman needs not worry about her home, but she instead needs to worry about her salvation. In marriage, the woman is called to do the will of her husband. Her first ministry is to serve her husband and to take good care of her home. For you who fear God, know that your blessings are linked to the way you are submissive to your husband in all things, and the way you take care of your home.

 

Do not imitate the deeds of Jezebels around you. Jezebels are never submissive. They are the ones who command, they are the ones who govern. They never do anything in their houses. They instruct others to execute all their household tasks for them. There are even witches who consider themselves so great that even the underwear of their husbands is washed by their maidservants. Never imitate those agents of satan. Serve the Lord, and work very hard for your crown. Submission consists in keeping silence even when we are right. The woman who fears the Lord must learn to keep silent when her husband speaks, she must learn not to raise her voice. There is a fight in a couple only when the woman cannot keep silent. When a woman cannot keep silent, it takes the husband to be a little bit brutal, and fighting is inevitable. And you know quite well that fighting does not solve any problem, on the contrary it glorifies satan.

 

8.6- The limits of submission

 

You must however know that submission has its limits. You should never submit yourself to a man to the extent of disobeying God. Do not forget that God comes before every person and before anything, and the desires of God come before the desires of men. So, you should not go to Hell under the pretext that you are submissive. You should submit yourself to your own husband as to the Lord. If your husband fears the Lord, then you should submit yourself to him without any reserve. But if he does not fear the Lord, you should submit yourself instead to the Lord; this implies that each time your husband asks you to do something contrary to the will of God, you must disobey him and obey God instead.

 

"And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father's will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows." Matthew 10:28-31. Know that no man died on the cross for you apart from the Lord Jesus Christ, and no man will be able to pull you out of Hell, if He sends you there.

 

8.7- The responsibility of the man

 

The responsibility of the man in the marriage is summarised in the following terms:

 

"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church." Ephesians 5:25-29.

 

"Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honour to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered." 1Peter 3:7.

 

"Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them." Colossians 3:19.

 

In marriage, the man must see to it that the total submission of the woman required by the Lord should not be a cover for him to inflict suffering on the woman. Men must learn to listen to their wives. You must give the opportunity to your wives to express themselves and to beam. You must be very gentle and very patient toward your wives, just as the Lord Himself is towards us.

 

8.8- The limits of love

 

Do not imitate demons who in their idolatry seduce themselves and follow their witches’ wives on the pretext that the Bible tells them to love their wives as their own selves. The Bible tells men to love their wives as themselves, and not to love witches as themselves. God has never asked men to love witches. On the contrary, in ancient times those witches were instead stoned to death.

 

"A man or a woman who is a medium, or who has familiar spirits, shall surely be put to death; they shall stone them with stones. Their blood shall be upon them." Leviticus 20:27. One can never love a witch, you should understand that very well. You will never win satan's confidence, and you will never succeed in satisfying the agents of satan, unless you decide to accompany them in Hell. Know that when the Lord asks you to love your wife as yourself, he is not talking about a sorceress, but about a wife. If you commit yourself to love a sorceress as yourself, you will accompany her in Hell. Let that be very clear.

 

8.9- Inversion of roles

 

Children of God must avoid reversing roles in marriage. When the man takes the place of the woman and the woman the place of the man, the marriage becomes an abomination before God. More and more, you find couples today, in which the man is the one taking care of the house, that is, domestic care and children, while the woman is at work. It is really the world upside down. No matter what reason you might have to find yourselves in such a position, you must do everything possible to come out of it as quickly as possible. There are others who find themselves in such a situation of inversion of roles because they were caught in their own trap. It is generally the case of men who get into marriages through self-interest, and who get married to Jezebels. If you get married to a woman because she is rich, or because she is well placed in the society, or because her parents are wealthy, you will certainly fall into this type of trap. If it is through selfish calculations that you build your marriage, if your interests pass before all other things, you will be caught in your own trap.

 

Let me share with you the case of this particular Christian, a university lecturer, who, in order to stay in a European country, decided to get married to a little Jezebel because of papers. He became a domestic servant in his own house; he became the lackey of this small Jezebel. During the day, he is a great lecturer in lecture halls, and as soon as he leaves the lecture halls, he becomes the houseboy. And he has no choice. His Jezebel has become the husband, and he the wife; and too bad for God! As for you Children of God, flee the lust of the earth, run away from the pride of life. The price to pay is usually heavy, very heavy. If instead of building your eternity you seek to win the earth, you might end up not winning anything at all. Be very careful! The riches of the earth are temporal, and the so-called happiness of the world is nothing but vanity.

 

8.10- Warnings: Seduction - Idolatry

 

Let me remind everyone that idolatry is a serious sin, not to say the most serious sin. God never tolerates that any person or anything takes an important place in the heart of His children. We should have an excessive love only for God, and for God alone, and not for a mortal being. "Give us help from trouble, for the help of man is useless. Through God we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies." Psalm 60:11-12.

 

Putting one's trust in a man is a serious thing, very serious. Every man shall pass away like the wind, but the Lord Jesus Christ abides forever. If you despise God in order to honour men, those men will not be there the moment you need them most. Remember once again that no human being has power over your salvation, and no mortal will be able to pull you out of Hell if you are stubborn before God and find yourself there. Women who despise God because of their husbands, men who despise God because of their wives, parents who despise God because of their children, children who despise God because of their parents, and all those who despise God because of their families, or because of their activities and their occupation, are idolaters. If they do not repent in time, they will burn in Hell forever.

 

We met satan's agents who declare themselves that their wives do not belong to God, but say that they will give their lives for those witches just as the Lord gave His life for His Church. It is not surprising! Children of satan are only there to blaspheme. And each time they want to return to their master the devil, they never lack reasons. You should never imitate them. Their end will be according to their works. The Lord is alive! You have understood very well in the teaching on discernment that the people of satan can never abide in the truth. They can be agitated in the truth for some time, but they never abide in it.

 

The married Children of God must know that if their partners are expelled from the Assembly, they must not fall into the trap of following them. Salvation is so precious that we must not play with. Hell is real; it is a fire that will burn and will never quench. Before playing, you must bear that in mind. Hell is not an imagination, Hell is not a fiction, Hell is a reality. It is a fire that burns without end. It is for this reason that Jesus left the throne of glory to come and suffer as a worthless man and die on a shameful cross. It is because of the terrible nature of Hell that the Lord chose to pay such a heavy price on the cross. And for this reason, every child of God must understand that we must not play with salvation. So do not allow anyone to turn you away from the truth.

 

I invite you to meditate with me the following passages:

 

Luke 14:26-27 "If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple."

 

Matthew 10:37-38 "He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me."

 

Deuteronomy 13:6-10 "If your brother, the son of your mother, your son or your daughter, the wife of your bosom, or your friend who is as your own soul, secretly entices you, saying, 'Let us go and serve other gods,' which you have not known, neither you nor your fathers, of the gods of the people which are all around you, near to you or far off from you, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth, you shall not consent to him or listen to him, nor shall your eye pity him, nor shall you spare him or conceal him; but you shall surely kill him; your hand shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterward the hand of all the people. And you shall stone him with stones until he dies, because he sought to entice you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage."

 

Since such persons can no longer be stoned today, all what you have to do, is to keep away from all those people who try to win you for Hell, and to break every relationship with them.

 

8.11- Problems in marriage

 

The majority of the problems faced by couples are linked to the fact that they were not taught before committing themselves to marriage. Let me at this level remind you of the main purpose of marriage. According to 1Corinthians 7:1, it is good not to marry. But to avoid finding oneself in sexual sins, it is better to marry. This allows you to understand clearly that, marriage not being a compelling way either for Heaven, or for happiness, one must only get married to avoid sexual sins. Therefore, the main purpose of marriage is sex.

 

Never commit yourself to marriage, if you do not feel any desire for sexual intercourse. It is important to make this precision, because you meet several women who, once married, do not want to submit themselves to sexual intercourse with their husbands, justifying their attitude by the fact that they feel no desire for sexual intercourse. They say very often that they just got married to have a friend to talk with. If you just want friends to talk with, you will never lack one in the Assembly. Do not spoil somebody's life by marrying him if you do not want sexual intercourse. And for all those who wonder whether one can get married just to have somebody with whom to talk and share their problems, without necessarily having to submit themselves to sexual intercourse, the answer is very clear, it is NO.

 

1Corinthians 7:4 says, "The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does." Once you are married, you cease to be the master of your body. It is your partner who becomes the master of your body. This implies that a woman has no right to be with her husband only when she wants or when she is happy, likewise, the husband has no right to be with his wife only when he wants or when he is happy. You must be there as long as your partner needs you. That is the choice you made by deciding to get married.

 

There are women who behave like prostitutes in their marriage, and who think that they can be with their husbands only when they have been made happy, when their husbands offer them some gifts. For some, as soon as there is a small problem in their relationship, they abandon the room, take a pillow with them and settle down on a cough. At times also you find but men who decide to change the room. I would like to remind you that this behaviour whether coming from the woman or from the man, is pure madness before God. Belonging to your partner and being with them whenever they need you, is part of the marriage vow that you took. Understand very well that choosing to get married implies choosing to live a capricious life.

 

There are people who complain about the insatiability of their partner during their sexual intercourse, and suffer enormously. The Bible encourages the married people not to forget themselves in carnal pleasures. But if your partner is one of the demons that have sex as god, you will suffer. There is not much more to do as far as that is concerned. This constitutes part of the tribulations of the flesh mentioned by the Lord. "But this I say, brethren, the time is short, so that from now on even those who have wives should be as though they had none, … those who rejoice as though they did not rejoice, … and those who use this world as not misusing it. For the form of this world is passing away." 1Corinthians 7:29-31.

 

There are also others who complain about not being able to take from time to time some moments of prayer and retreat before the Lord as they would have wished, because their partner remains very attached to sexual intercourse. Even here, there is not much more to do. This only adds to the numerous tribulations in the flesh that await the married couple. It is for such difficulties that the Lord granted His children the option of not getting married, for those who would like to serve Him without distraction, and for those who would not want to be slaves of men.

 

"But even if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Nevertheless such will have trouble in the flesh, but I would spare you." 1Corinthians 7:28. "You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men." 1Corinthians 7:23. When one chooses marriage, it entails choosing double slavery; of the woman if you are a man, and of the man if you are a woman, knowing that we are already all slaves of Christ. If you want to consecrate yourself to the Lord and serve Him without any distraction, if you do not want to spend your life being under the whims of a man or a woman, you do not have to burden yourself with marriage. Marriage after all is something of an encumbrance.

 

8.12- Problems management

 

Danger to be avoided: Know that bad companies are often one of the principal sources of problems amongst couple. You must keep away from bad people. Women must flee from all these friends, mates, or companions who try to set them up against their husbands, by giving them satanic advice. You need only to keep company with women that fear the Lord with all their hearts. Men must make sure that they keep their wives away from women with bad testimonies. They must keep their wives away from Jezebels who are known for their insubordination. If not, these Jezebels will indoctrinate and contaminate them with all kinds of rubbish. Flee from all evil companies. "Do not be deceived: Evil company corrupts good habits." 1Corinthians 15:33.

 

Never entrust the problems of the couple to outsiders, not even to Christians. If it is really necessary to entrust your problems of marriage to someone, you should only do so to true elders, and not to the wicked who listen to your problems, propagate it to others, and then make a mockery of you afterward. Marriage does not consist of smiling with the partner only when you want to have fun, and once amusement is over you become bitter, wicked etc. A man must make an effort to maintain an atmosphere of peace and joy in his home, and the woman must avoid getting into needless caprices. Each partner must do everything possible not to be at the origin of the least problem in the home. If you behave this way, you will overcome problems in your home. You must also make sure you do not go to bed with your anger, Ephesians 4:26. It is therefore important to resolve problems as soon as possible when they arise, and to reconcile before going to bed. If you entertain problems, know that it is satan who will be glorified. Do not imitate the examples of couples who spend several days without greeting each other. They are progressively heading for Hell. It is not by living in this manner that they will meet God.

 

8.13- The management of children

 

1Samuel 2:29-30 "… Why do you honour your sons more than Me, … Therefore the Lord God of Israel says: 'I said indeed that your house and the house of your father would walk before Me forever.' But now the Lord says: 'Far be it from Me; for those who honour Me I will honour, and those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed."

 

Once more, you should not learn satanic laws that forbid you from correcting your children. You must obey God, rather than men. If you do not correct your children, they will become monsters in your homes. God is the one who created children, and He knows them better than us. If He asks us to correct the children, He certainly knows why. Moreover, God who asks us to correct the children loves them more than we love them. So, do not fall into the traps of imitating the agents of satan who always try to prove that they have more love than God, and who destroy the children by refusing to correct them. These are as many tricks of satan. And agents of satan know very well how to prepare children to become other agents of satan, by refusing any correction of children. Refusing to correct a child implies destroying him, and entails making him a rebellious child that will not submit to anything and to anyone. It is in this manner that they are bringing up rebellious children of this last generation, and these are the children that will follow and adore the antichrist.

 

For you who belong to the Lord, never imitate such examples. Our parents did correct us and we did not die, on the contrary, we have become wise, we can only glory in it and glorify God. And I will cease the opportunity to give you another element of discernment. If you meet men who oppose God, by forbidding the correction of children, and take pleasure in tolerating all sort of rubbish from children, know that they are agents of satan. They know very well what they are doing. Do not think they are innocent, do not think they are ignorant, and do not think they love children. It is because they have chosen to mislead these children that they so act by trickery. Every true child of God knows that God is never wrong when He speaks. God asked to correct children; if you believe to belong to God, obey!

 

If children have become great armed robbers and great criminals today, it is simply because of all these satanic laws. If delinquency has reached inconceivable proportions, it is because of satanic laws aimed at transforming this generation into the generation of antichrist. It is left to you to choose your camp, and to choose whom you want to obey.

 

Jeremiah 10:2-3 "Thus says the Lord: Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the Gentiles are dismayed at them. For the customs of the peoples are futile…"

 

Proverbs 13:24 "He who spares his rod hates his son, but he who loves him disciplines him promptly."

 

Proverbs 23:13-14 "Do not withhold correction from a child, for if you beat him with a rod, he will not die. You shall beat him with a rod, and deliver his soul from Hell."

 

Proverbs 19:18 "Chasten your son while there is hope, and do not set your heart on his destruction."

 

Proverbs 22:15 "Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; the rod of correction will drive it far from him."

 

Proverbs 29:15, 17 "The rod and rebuke give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother. Correct your son, and he will give you rest; yes, he will give delight to your soul."

 

Ephesians 6:4 "And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord."

 

Partners must love one another, and not let children be a problem between them. Know that children, before being your children, are first of all strangers in your midst, in the sense that when they grow up, they will go away from you to establish their homes elsewhere, leaving only the two of you. It is therefore foolish on your part to quarrel all the time or even to break up because of strangers. Watch in order not to fall again into this trick of satan. You even find foolish men who beat their wives because of children, there are others who go as far as asking their children not to obey their mothers, and not to help their mothers. This can only be partly justified, and even understood in the case where the mother is a sorceress. And if the mother is not a sorceress, know that a man who demonstrates this degree of unnecessary wickedness and who turns children against their mothers without any reason, is a demon. Only demons enjoy turning children against their own mothers without any true reason.

 

For proper up bringing and education of your children, a man should never give children the impression that he loves them more than their mother do, and a woman should never give children the impression that she loves them more than their father do. You must never fall into such trap. If not your children will grow up unbalanced. Every partner must have the rights to correct the children. It is in your interest and that of your children. "A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish son is the grief of his mother." Proverbs 10:1. "A foolish son is the ruin of his father …" Proverbs 19:13. "A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her who bore him." Proverbs 17:25.

 

8.14- Adoption of children

 

Many people, including Christians, do not hesitate today to resort to adoption in order to have children, when for one reason or the other they did not have any. I will linger over the case of Christians. The fact of resorting to adoption for Christian couples is a proof that Children of God lack teachings. Children of God must first of all understand that they do not get married for children. When two people get married, it is with the aim of living one for another, and one with another, and not for children. Even though the Lord in most cases gives us children, He did not say that He must give us children when we get married. He is therefore free to give us children or not. Children of God must understand that, and learn to praise God under all circumstances.

 

Resorting to adoption does not solve the problem. If the desire of the couple is to live at all costs with children, there's no lack of children. There are brethren who have many children that they are not able to take care of. They can go to those brethren and take one or few of their children, and bring them up to the glory of God. Adopting children only to have the feeling that one has his own children, is a pure distraction of the spirit, because everything is there to prove that the children are not yours, but adopted children. Adoption is therefore far from being the solution. The solution lies at first in the acceptance of the will of God. If it is God who has chosen not to give you children, despite all your prayers, you must just praise Him. He is sovereign.

 

But, before retreating to believe that it is the will of God for you not to have children, you really need to be sure. The very first will of God for us when we are married is that we should have children. We should therefore find abnormal the fact of having no children, and seek the face of God to know the cause, if it is hidden from us. But I know that when ever couples without children go to men of God to submit to them their problems, when men of God pray, the Lord always glorifies Himself, and grants children to the couples, unless there are other unclear reasons beyond explanations. And if after all you find yourself taking one or many children from people outside, only make sure they are good children; because if you take little serpents, as they are many today, they could destroy your home.

 

8.15- Management of the in-laws and strangers

 

Children of God should understand that they must do everything possible to preserve their marriage. For that to be possible, they must learn to put each and everything in its place, and to define the position of each and every person. Nobody should take the place of God in our lives and in our homes, and after God, no one should take the place of our partner, if and only if our partner is of God. Never forget that the Lord must come before everything. You can welcome strangers, family members, in-laws, in your houses, so long as their presence do not hinder our spiritual freedom and our relationships with God. In all that you do, you must make sure that your salvation is not endangered. Avoid any form of compromising.

 

8.16- Management of material things

 

"For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh…" Matthew 19:5-6. For many people, this notion applies only when their selfishness is to be satisfied. They only become one flesh when they want to satisfy their carnal desires. Once their carnal desire satisfied, each one becomes oneself.

 

That is not marriage according to God. In a marriage that glorifies God, no person claims personal ownership over anything, everything belongs to each of the partners. So do not imitate worldly couples in which the man has his own possessions and the woman hers. That is an abomination before God. Today, we find so-called christian couples, where the man manages his own money and the woman likewise, and each time the two contribute to take care of the children. And on Sunday they find themselves in the church, shouting alleluia. Let me remind you once again that if you mock God, He will also mock you. So, you would better repent before it is too late. Greediness has enveloped all the hearts.

 

8.17- Absences

 

"Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control." 1Corinthians 7:5. According to the Word of God, married children of God must avoid living separately, that is, living kilometres away from each other for a long time. And as we have just read in 1Corinthians 7:5, if for one reason or the other one must live separate from the other, it must be by mutual consent, and this for a short time only. This therefore has nothing to do with those separations, which are done in a fanciful way, where because of greed or the pride of life partners choose to live one in one country, and the other in another country; this also has nothing to do with separations resulting from problems or from quarrelling. For married Children of God, living far from each other without a valuable reason, even if it is by mutual consent, is a sin in God's sight.

 

Children of God must understand that marriage is not a place where whenever a woman is not so happy with her husband, she would take her things and go back to her parents' home to think before coming back. They must also understand that marriage is not a place where the day the man is not happy, he sends his wife back to her parents. Married people have the duty before God, to live together at all times. All that you call body separation following problems, has therefore no meaning in God's sight. Any form of unjustified separation before God, whether legal or any other type, is in total opposition to the Word of God. It is a disorder.

 

There are some foolish people who for stupid reasons feel at ease to separate themselves from their partners for months and even years. You even find some so-called pastors who live separated from their wives. One lives in one country with the children or with some children, the other lives in another country, either alone, or with the rest of the children. It is a great disorder before God. This kind of situation happens, either when the woman is a rebel who wants to have her freedom and do what she wants, or when both partners, attracted by the pride of life, want at all costs to live in a foreign country, and are ready to take any risk, including embarking on an adventure with an uncertain outcome. This is what justifies those cases of separation today, where the pastor lives in Africa, and his Jezebel in Europe, and vice versa, and both claim to be serving God.

 

Do not be deceived a single moment, know that such couples are couples in which sorcery reigns. If you find yourselves in a church led by a so-called pastor who is settled in one country and his wife in the other, come out quickly. You are just wasting your time. God is nowhere in this type of church, and God would not be with such wizards in their seduction. I remind those pastors deceivers who are settled in one country, and who voluntarily or involuntarily allow their wives to live in another country, that they are serving satan, and not God. They should stop deceiving themselves.

 

There are more and more witches wives of pastors, who with their seduction, manage to convince their husband, who grant them permission to go and settle in another country, with a woman pastor or with a woman prophetess, under the pretext of being trained for the ministry. It is often a good occasion for these witches to operate well and to well develop their satanic powers. It is also during those moments that the Jezebel pastor or prophetess initiates the other one into homosexuality. That is how the network of lesbians develops in churches, with those witches who called themselves pastors or prophetesses, and also the witches’ wives of pastors, who with their authority induce other girls to homosexuality. Flee from all the churches led by those witches whom you call women pastors, or women prophetesses.

 

8.18- Precisions

 

I wish to make it clear that marriage just as I have taught applies to a normal Christian couple, that means, a couple composed of two people who both belong to God. Let's recall that a Christian marriage is a marriage between two Christians. And a Christian is anyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour, who has confessed their sins, and who has been baptized in water for the forgiveness of their sins, and who is baptized in the Holy Spirit. It is therefore clear that the religious who do not have Jesus Christ as their only Master, and who are not baptized in water in the name of that Jesus Christ, who is the only way to eternal life, are not considered as Christians. So do not fall into the traps of putting into practice some of the elements mentioned in this teaching if your case does not meet the same conditions. Let me give you some examples:

 

The submission of the woman: In the case of a couple where the woman is a Christian and the husband is a pagan, total submission without discernment can cost the woman dearly. In such cases, the woman must make sure that she submits herself only to the laws of the Lord.

 

The unfaithfulness of a partner: In the case of the couples where the husband is a pagan and is unfaithful, the woman if she chooses to stay with that man, must be careful and make sure that he does not carry with him these sexually transmitted diseases that are ravaging the unfaithful and prostitutes, before going with him. In that case before giving her body to the husband, she must be very careful, and not just apply the recommendation of 1Corinthians 7:4 without discernment. It goes the same with men whose wives are pagans and unfaithful, and who choose to remain with them.

 

The responsibility of the man: Men are called upon to listen to their wives, and to take into consideration the opinion of their wives when they have to make decisions. For men who have witches and Jezebels as wives, do not fall into the trap of listening to them or walking according to their opinions. Or else you will find yourselves far from the face of God.

 

The joint management of possessions: In the case of mixed couples, that is, couples in which one of the partners is a pagan, the joint management of possessions is not easy at all. The worldly partner very often understands only the worldly management of things, with intentions tilted only to the lust after the things of the world. And when it is the man who is an unbeliever, he is usually so irresponsible that he squanders and wastes all the couple's money. And if the woman has put everything at his disposal, she will often find herself in problems, unable to meet up with her needs and that of the children.

 

9- FAMILY PLANNING

 

Another difficulty, and not the least, of life in marriage, is family planning. Managing the number of children, and the gaps between the children, is often an extremely complex thing for the Children of God. On the one hand, they are not supposed to plunge themselves into anything that seems to be a disobedience to God, that is, human intervention in the process of procreation, and that no one is very sure of what God would say about it. On the other hand, and more and more, they give birth to so many children that they inevitably find themselves confronted with real and practical problems, which constitute birth spacing and limitation of the number of children, according to their means, for the most difficult thing is not to have children, but to bring them up and educate them "under good conditions".

 

This difficulty is so serious that you find monogamous Christian couples with more than ten children, without any financial and material means to bring those children up, and Christian couples, still monogamous who give birth to up to four children in a space of three years, and others with seven children in six years of marriage, and who continue to give birth to children. What must we do? Is there really anything that can be done? Such are the questions that we shall make every effort to answer throughout this study.

 

Before continuing this study, it is necessary to first of all question the origin of this problem. Considering the fact that the patriarchs, that is, our forefathers in the Bible never had this problem of family planning, it is important to know where it comes from, why it is there, and since when? If this problem of family planning is too ambiguous to Children of God, it is simply because it is not treated anywhere in the Bible. Nowhere in the Bible you find an example of family planning, nowhere you find a chemical or mechanical method of contraception, and nowhere you find this kind of difficulty. Why then did the people of old not have this kind of problem?

 

Either they slept together only when they wanted children, in which case we could conclude that those of today burn a little more, or they slept normally and regularly one with the other, and in this case we could attribute the great change that we notice today, to the deterioration of spiritual climate. Because of the multiplication of sin on earth, the curses of God are pouring down, and the people of these last generations experience problems that those of old did not experience. This degradation of spiritual climate would justify at least in part this thorny problem of family planning.

 

We know that breastfeeding already constitutes to some extent a natural means of contraception. In fact, child breastfeeding prevents the woman from being fertile. But in our modern world, the woman does no longer breastfeed or breastfeeds little; her motivation being aesthetic or financial. Aesthetic when she considers preserving a beautiful chest more important than naturally feeding her baby, financial when her financial independence or her professional prestige comes before her function as a mother.

 

Satanic law of equality between man and woman so much advocated today, has broken the family life as the Lord had wished, leaving in a home two men, that is, two people constantly in trousers, or if you want, two authoritative persons with no one ready to submit to the other. Reminding a woman today of her domestic duties is like committing a terrible sin in the sight of the world.

 

"But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience; the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behaviour, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things, that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed." Titus 2:1-5.

 

But at present, notwithstanding the fact that many women opt for modernism, the sad truth is that, even the few women who still want to breastfeed their children normally, that is only with milk from her breast, see their menses earlier than expected, thereby exposing them to a possible pregnancy. That is what justifies some cases of four children in only three years of marriage, as we have made mention of. When we go through the Bible, we realise that the men who had more than ten children, had them with many women, and scarcely with a single woman. And although the patriarchs desired to have children, they never had children to the point of not wanting them anymore. On the contrary, the number of children they had was always "insufficient". Today it is all the opposite. Men desire to have few children, but always find themselves against their wishes with many. Amongst the couples with few children today, very few are those who had them without human intervention. What can therefore justify or explain such a great change?

 

While waiting to find an answer to this question, if there is any, we can at least validate the observation. It is real and unequivocal. Family planning has become a serious problem today, both for pagans and for Christians. For this reason, the search for a solution has become a priority, hence the various techniques and methods of contraception. If the world can use these methods unscrupulously and at will, Christians on their parts are most often in trouble. While some think that God Himself will understand that the difficulties with which they are confronted justify well the use of contraceptive methods, others have a blunt position, and think that God will understand nothing. Meanwhile, uncertainty reigns in the midst of couples who are Children of God. All of these justify the importance of this teaching, from which Christian couples expect a lot.

 

9.1- Christian and contraception

 

Contraception (birth control) is the sum of methods designed to prevent fertilization in a reversible and temporary way. It is also defined "as the use of various devices, agents, methods or procedures to reduce the likelihood of conception or to prevent it". In general, the methods of contraception aim at preventing:

 

- Either ovulation, it is the case of the pill,

- Or fertilization, it is the case of condom,

- Or implantation of the fertilized egg, it is the case of the coil.

 

Within the framework of this teaching, I decided not to associate the methods of natural family planning with the other artificial methods of contraception. The reason being that the methods of natural family planning, strictly speaking, do not constitute means of contraception. It is about the attitudes to adopt and not the method to use. Before determining whether or not a Christian can use contraception with impunity, we shall go through the various methods together. In order to avoid turning this teaching on marriage into a biology lesson, I have chosen, in the analysis of the various methods of contraception, to limit myself to the essentials that will help us to take a decision. In so doing, I have grouped these methods into two categories, not according to the more traditional classification as is usually done, but rather according to their harmful effects, or in other words, according to the way it takes us away from the ways of God.

 

9.1.1- Classification of contraceptives methods according
to their harmful effects

 

9.1.1.1- Those similar to provoked abortion

 

I. Combined Estrogen-Progestin Contraceptives:

 

In tablets: Commonly known as pills (oral contraceptives).

They must be taken daily, according to the prescriptions, without skipping a day.

 

The transdermal contraceptive patch: Patches are applied to the skin. The patch delivers hormones into the body.

 

The Birth Control Ring: As pills and patches, the Ring releases a continuous low dose of hormones (estrogen and progestin) in the woman body.

 

II. Progestin-only Contraceptives

 

In tablets: Commonly known as the "mini-pill."

The mini-pill only works if you take it every day at the same time of the day.

 

Injectable Progestin: It is injected periodically.

 

Subdermal progestin implant: The contraceptive implant releasing the hormone is inserted subcutaneously into the ventral aspect of the upper arm for a certain period.

 

III. Intrauterine system (IUS)

 

An IUS is a small plastic device that works like an IUD but which also contains the hormone progestogen. It slowly releases hormones into the womb.

 

IV. The morning-after pill

 

It is nothing else than pills causing abortion in case of unwanted pregnancy.

 

All these methods among others, are intended to prevent ovulation and to render impossible the implantation of the fertilized egg in the endometrium. But the fertilization was able all the same to take place, hence their classification in this heading.

 

V. The copper intrauterine device, also known as 'the coil'

 

The copper IUD prevents fertilization. And if an egg does become fertilized, implantation on the wall of the uterus is prevented because copper changes the lining of the uterus. Hence they are considered by some people as a form of "public abortionist".

 

9.1.1.2- Those that are not similar to provoked abortion, but that can be harmful to health

 

I. Spermicides

 

Spermicide is an agent that is destructive to spermatozoa. Some women (and men) have experienced irritation and even allergic reactions after using spermicide.

 

II. Female Condoms

 

The female condom works in exactly the same way as the male condom by acting as a barrier to sperm. Some people have troubles inserting the condom, and others may experience irritation as a result of wearing the condom.

 

III. Male Condoms

 

A male condom is a thin sheath that is usually made of latex. Condom is considered to be a barrier method of birth control. It prevents the sperm from coming into contact with the egg. Potential side effects result in the fact that one or both partners may be allergic to latex condoms or to lubricants that some condoms are treated with. Let us all the same not lose sight on the fact that allergic reactions can go from a simple itching (scratching) to some, to the fatal oedema called Quincke's oedema to others, a real call for medical emergency. There are other condoms coated with spermicides, which in addition to the potential allergies presented, carry along risks similar to spermicides.

 

9.1.2- Analysis of contraceptives methods

 

As it stands, in the absence of a clear direction from God with regard to the methods of contraception, to know what to do, we are going to make a fair analysis of these methods. We notice from the above classification that the first category is in fact a practice of voluntary abortion, which is not called by its name. Does it still need any reflection? The answer becomes simpler for every Christian, even the most ignorant: This is a method to shun.

 

As for the second category, although it does not lead to abortion, it is however dangerous for health. Should a Christian woman gently commit suicide through so-called contraceptive products? Should a Christian husband sacrifice his wife on the altar of enjoyment of sin by allowing her to use such products? Or, must he as well put his life in danger, by using this condom whose health risks are well established? The answer becomes obvious for every Christian, even the most ignorant: They are methods to shun.

 

After analysis we conclude without hesitation that all the methods of contraception are to be avoided. Therefore, we do no longer have to wonder what God thinks of these methods. If as human beings we find these methods dangerous, it is not God who will find them good.

 

9.1.3- Conclusion

 

Though the Lord chose not to speak about contraception in the Bible, His will appears easily from the result of the study that we have just done. We can therefore confirm with ease, that God is against all these methods, because either they are dangerous for human being, or they are totally contrary to the law of God. You thus have to avoid all the methods of contraception.

 

9.2- Natural methods

 

Generally, when family planning is studied, among the various methods presented, there is what is called natural methods. While the artificial methods disturb in one way or the other the natural process of fertility cycle (modification of the level of hormones in the blood which prevents ovulation, acting on the fertilized egg to prevent it from settling in the uterus, the condom which prevents the sperm from coming into contact with the egg), the natural methods are based on strict and regular observation, and good mastery of the body for women, and perfect self-control for men.

 

These natural methods, at no time, interfere in the natural mechanisms of fertility. The natural fertility cycle is never thwarted. Nothing being done to act against conception (root of the word contraception), the natural methods should not be considered as contraception.

 

Moreover, the natural methods present no health risk for women. Two main natural methods can be distinguished: The method of observation of the menstrual cycle for women and the method of withdrawal or coitus interruptus for men. If the method of fertility awareness for women does not constitute any problem on the spiritual level, the withdrawal method or coitus interruptus for men on its part, is treated with some reserve, since the only case of its practice mentioned in the Bible, was punished by God. It is the case of Onan in Genesis 38. Let us examine this case together:

 

"It came to pass at that time that Judah departed from his brothers, and visited a certain Adullamite whose name was Hirah. And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite whose name was Shua, and he married her and went in to her. So she conceived and bore a son, and he called his name Er. She conceived again and bore a son, and she called his name Onan. And she conceived yet again and bore a son, and called his name Shelah. He was at Chezib when she bore him. Then Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, and her name was Tamar. But Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the Lord, and the Lord killed him. And Judah said to Onan, "Go in to your brother's wife and marry her, and raise up an heir to your brother." But Onan knew that the heir would not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in to his brother's wife, that he emitted on the ground, lest he should give an heir to his brother. And the thing which he did displeased the Lord; therefore He killed him also." Genesis 38:1-10.

 

On the meditation of this passage, it stands out clearly that God did not punish Onan because he emitted on the ground. God punished him because of his wickedness, because he did not want to give an heir to his brother. It is therefore not the act of Onan that God had punished, it is rather the motive behind that act which was obnoxious in God's eyes. Onan was not spacing out the births by spilling his semen out of his sister-in-law; he was neither limiting the number of births by doing that, he was just wicked. We cannot therefore mix up the case of Onan with a case of contraception, or even of family planning. It is just a case of wickedness.

 

Was Onan the first man to use this method? If yes where had he learnt it? Was he the only one to have used it? Was he the last man to use this method? If not why was he the only one to be punished? This helps us to understand that it is not the fact of interrupting the sexual intercourse which was Onan's fault. For a couple of Children of God who are legally married, who have their children in the grace of God and get organized to space out the births so as to better equate with the family means, can this technique be also perceived as wickedness? The answer is certainly no.

 

Conclusion: If in the case of Children of God's couples as mentioned above, the Lord could be against this practice, the reason would not be wickedness, the reason would be somewhere else. And for the moment we do not know what could be such a reason. Therefore, Children of God who have some doubts concerning this natural method of withdrawal of the man, can go before the Lord to see if there are other reasons for which God would punish it. The natural methods of family planning are therefore the only ones that do not put us in disagreement with God.

 

10- DIVORCE

 

Divorce, which at time is softly called separation, is the logical consequence of a marriage founded on false bases. We can ask ourselves this question: "Whose fault is it when a marriage is made on a wrong basis?" The answer is simple, it is the fault of the concerned. Beloved, know that when you make a wrong marriage, even if at times the fault can be attributed to somebody else, it remains above all yours, except some cases of worldly forced marriages, in which the will of the young girl is not considered at all. You therefore have to watch carefully in order never to accept a marriage if it is not your choice, for in case of failure, you will be the one to suffer. Every one is responsible for his life and for his commitments before God. I know there are many people who complain about pastors being the cause of their wrong choice.

 

When your heart is honest and right before God, when you are sincere in your walk with God, you do not allow yourself to be trapped, even if your pastor is one of those sorcerers who fill the churches today. Understand brethren, that the fact of accusing your pastors does not justify you. If you seek the will of God with all your heart, you will find it. "And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord." Jeremiah 29:13-14.

 

You have the obligation to read the Bible and to verify the teachings you receive. If your pastor is not faithful to the Word of God, flee from lies. But if you choose to stay in falsehood because of self-interest, you will bear the consequences. Know that even if some cases of divorce could be tolerated, God is against divorce. That is the reason why He asks us to sit down first and count the cost before committing ourselves. Let us read the following passages together:

 

"The Pharisees also came to Him, testing Him, and saying to Him, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?" And He answered and said to them, "Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female,' "and said, 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? "So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate." They said to Him, "Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?" He said to them, "Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so." Matthew 19:3-8.

 

"Then He arose from there and came to the region of Judea by the other side of the Jordan. And multitudes gathered to Him again, and as He was accustomed, He taught them again. The Pharisees came and asked Him, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?" testing Him. And He answered and said to them, "What did Moses command you?" They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to dismiss her." And Jesus answered and said to them, "Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of the creation, God 'made them male and female.' 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh." "Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate." In the house His disciples also asked Him again about the same matter. So He said to them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery." Mark 10:1-12.

 

"Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife." 1Corinthians 7:10-11.

 

There are three different cases of divorce: Legal divorce, tolerated divorce, and condemned divorce.

 

10.1- Legal divorce

 

God has never legalized divorce, and it will never be legalized. Therefore, all this series of divorces freely practiced, even in the Christian churches, is a terrible abomination before God, and all this simply reflects the deviations of the end times. There is not and will never exist any legalized divorce in the sight of God.

 

10.2- Tolerated divorce

 

Although divorce is not approved, God in His righteousness recognises certain reasons that could lead man to it. Amongst these reasons, we have the following:

 

- The unfaithfulness of a partner.

- Marriages contracted in the world.

- Marriages done in satanic sects.

- Religious marriages done in ignorance.

- When salvation is endangered.

 

10.2.1- The unfaithfulness of the woman

 

"Furthermore it has been said, 'Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.' But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery." Matthew 5:31-32. "And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery." Matthew 19:9.

 

Marital unfaithfulness, especially on the part of the woman, is always a terrible blow to the couple. It is a great abomination before God, and even before normal men. God who hates adultery, and who Himself has been a victim on the part of His people Israel, understands much better than us the effects of the wife's unfaithfulness on the husband. He knows that they are things which at times are so difficult to bear, and often very difficult to live with. He knows that a normal man under such circumstances is always moved by jealousy, and might never forget such evil. For that, He recognises few reasons that could lead to divorce. For such a serious reason, a man can choose to divorce, and this is tolerated before God, if and only if such a man does not fall within the divorce that is condemned.

 

10.2.2- The unfaithfulness of the man

 

If the Lord in His word has chosen not to say much about the unfaithfulness of the man, it is particularly because of the position of the man before Him. From the beginning of the creation, God made man the head of the woman, and as such He recognises the authority and power of the man. And since an authority at times has the right to use its authority at its discretion, God also recognises in man the right to use his authority at his discretion. This is why in the former days a man could wilfully take more than one wife without any condemnation before God. And for this reason, even the unfaithfulness of the man had never been a major problem.

 

But for Children of God, every sin carries its weight before God, and all deviations, including that of the man, is no longer overlooked before God. If therefore polygamy is no longer tolerated before God nowadays, it is not the unfaithfulness of the man that will be tolerated. It therefore depends on the married woman, to choose whether she can bear and tolerate the unfaithfulness of her husband. If she finds it very difficult to continue with such a man, either for the same reason of jealousy, or for fear of being contaminated by the various diseases to which unfaithful and perverse men are exposed, she can choose to divorce, and this divorce is likewise tolerated before God, if and only if the case of such a woman does not fall within the framework of condemned divorce.

 

10.2.3- Marriages contracted in the world

 

Marriages contracted in the world are often made on false bases, since most of the married people are ignorant of the laws of God. These marriages made without the least discernment, and in ignorance, are at times the result of relationships based on the lies of one or both of the partners, at times under all sort of pressure, at times without the consent of the woman (forced marriages), and at times under lots of incantations. Many of these marriages, especially those based on witchcraft, are all bound to fail. Divorce in such a case is tolerated in the sight of God.

 

10.2.4- Marriages made in the occult world

 

Marriages made in the occult world are not even marriages at all in the sight of God. Such are satanic pacts that need to be broken as soon as possible like any other occult pact the moment the concerned meets the Lord Jesus Christ. Pacts signed in the occult world should never be considered as marriages recognised by God. If somebody who formerly belonged to the occult world believes in God, if they had contracted marriage while there, they must renounce it immediately before even taking their baptism. They must put an end to all the links with their partner of that occult world. Since such satanic pact is not even recognised as marriage before God, we need not even talk in terms of divorce in such a case.

 

10.2.5- Religious marriages made in ignorance

 

In churches today, pastors, out of ignorance, for those who are of God, allow young people to commit themselves in bad marriages, without any teaching, and without any discernment. Once in marriage, brethren realise that they have committed a terrible mistake, and sometimes, they find themselves in situations where the marriage is unbearable. As for the pastors of satan, they make sure they hide from Children of God every good teaching on marriage, and wilfully push them into bad marriages through well-conceived satanic teachings, by uniting them with sorcerers partners. Thus, many people find themselves in unbearable marriages with agents of satan. Depending on the degree of ignorance in which the deceived partner found himself before contracting such a marriage, divorce in some of these cases is tolerated before God.

 

10.2.6- When salvation is endangered

 

If in marriage, the salvation of a partner who is a child of God is in danger, that is, if by staying in such a marriage Hell will be inevitable, they can escape from such a marriage. Divorce in these cases, is tolerated before God, if and only if such a case does not fall within the framework of condemned divorce.

 

Mark 9:43-48 "If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to Hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched- "where 'Their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.' "And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame, rather than having two feet, to be cast into Hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched- "where 'Their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.' "And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into Hell fire-"where 'Their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched."

 

1Corinthians 7:21 "Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it."

 

Know that marriage in general is a form of slavery; and in some cases, marriage is a real slavery, slavery that at times goes beyond the normal slavery. There are some marriages in which life is likened to a small hell on earth. The Lord who knows the price of our salvation, and who knows how dear and even so dear our salvation is, gives more weight to salvation than to marriage vows. For that reason, He tolerates that a child of God who is locked up in that type of slavery should come out freely, just to preserve his salvation. "You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men." 1Corinthians 7:23.

 

10.3- Condemned divorce

 

If there are cases of tolerated divorce before God, for reasons as those I mentioned above, there are others that are not tolerated. That means there are divorces that will never be forgiven to those who practice them no matter what reason they give to justify their acts. The following are included in this category:

 

- The case of those who followed true teaching on marriage before committing themselves. In such cases we can no longer talk of ignorance.

 

- The case of those who were warned but who stubbornly continued. And there are many today who believe that in the Church, every person is free to do what they want.

 

- The case of marriages contracted in the world, but on "good" bases, that is to say, the so-called Christians who rebel and abandon the face of God or leave the Church to go and get married in the world. Among them are those who seduce themselves on the pretext that they are getting married to pagans in order to win them over.

 

- The case of people who divorce for irrelevant and shameful reasons. Among them are all these animals that divorce on the pretext that they do not have sexual satisfaction with their partner, those who divorce on the pretext that their wives do not give birth, and all those who divorce with unfounded reasons.

 

In these cases, we cannot say that the marriages are made on false bases; they are instead based on stubbornness and rebellion. We cannot also say that the reasons mentioned for divorce in these cases are sufficient to break up a sacred link such as marriage. In such cases, divorce is not permitted and will never be tolerated before God. If you find yourself in such a case, just know that divorce will lead you straight to Hell.

 

I will in this case give you a small testimony. We one day met an agent of satan, a renowned pastor and bible school teacher, who divorced and was looking forward to remarrying. This sorcerer who got married while already a pastor, and teacher of a great international bible institute, that is, knowing better than you and I these teachings that I am giving you, gave as reason for his divorce the fact that his wife was frigid. And for this dog, this was a sufficient reason to abandon a poor woman that he had already destroyed, to look for another. This is how agents of satan create confusion in the midst of the people of God, in order to slander the gospel. In order to divorce they evoke coarse words and obscenities of any kind. If the Children of God could understand that God is against divorce, and that some cases of divorces lead straight to Hell, they would flee all forms of rebellion and do things with less agitation and haste.

 

11- REMARRIAGE

 

11.1- Study of Matthew 19:9

 

"I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery." Matthew 19:9.

 

This passage of the Bible is usually interpreted very wrongly by those who believe to have found in it a pretext to justify remarriage after certain cases of divorce. And many dogs who have divorced and remarried have always brandished this passage as a green light to their disorder; and it is always the misinterpretation of this passage that makes some people think they can divorce and remarry freely, once it is established that their wives found themselves in infidelity. What does Matthew 19:9 say?

 

In Matthew 19:9, the Lord Jesus is by no means giving us a teaching on remarriage. He is instead reinforcing the teaching on divorce. So it has never been anything connected to remarriage in this passage. To understand it better, I invite you to read with me these other passages of the Scripture:

 

"Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced from her husband commits adultery." Luke 16:18.

 

"Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife." 1Corinthians 7:10-11.

 

"It has been said, 'Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.' But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery." Matthew 5:31-32.

 

"So He said to them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery." Mark 10:11-12.

 

On reading these other passages, it becomes easy to understand Matthew 19:9, the Lord having chosen not to leave His Children in ignorance, and not to allow the stubborn to justify themselves. For many dogs who divorce and want to remarry, make every effort to twist Matthew 19:9 (even as they do also the other Scriptures each time their interest is threatened), in order to support their folly. They say that the Lord has said "…, except for marital unfaithfulness…" For them, as long as they can prove the unfaithfulness, they are free to put their wife away, and even to take another.

 

11.2- What is the will of God?

 

The will of God, as expressed in His word, is that, if a man is married, he must remain with his wife until death. God detests disorder, and would on no account allow man to change woman freely as one would change clothing. As we have studied in the teaching on divorce, unfaithfulness in marriage constitutes a breaking off of the vow taken before God, and can go at times until the total breaking off of marriage. And when this unfaithfulness comes but from the woman, it becomes a very difficult pill for man to swallow; God knows it. The Lord therefore reveals to us here, that divorce for a reason other than unfaithfulness, should not be tolerated. If because of unfaithfulness the Lord can tolerate divorce, it does not mean that each and every case of unfaithfulness must be followed by a divorce.

 

Unfaithfulness therefore, is not a green light to divorce, and must not automatically lead to divorce. If the husband can forgive the unfaithfulness of his wife and live with it, he is free. But if he cannot, he can separate from her. In this case, and according to Matthew 5:32, by separating from this adulterous woman, the husband does not cause her to become an adulteress, since she is already an adulteress. It is only in this case that man escapes the judgement of God with regard to his divorce. You now understand very well that divorce without a true reason like this one, is not at all tolerated before God. Therefore man in normal position, has no right to divorce, because by so doing, he causes his wife to become an adulteress, whether he chooses to remarry or not.

 

So understand that the problem here is not a problem of remarriage, but a problem of divorce. Exposing a normal woman to adultery is something that the Lord does not tolerate. But if the woman is no longer what we call a normal woman, that means, if she is already an adulteress, the man can put her away, without bearing upon him the responsibility of having made her adulterous. In that, such a man escapes the judgement of God for this case of divorce.

 

11.3- Let us not tempt God

 

Understand that a divorce is after all a failure, and those who have divorced, simply prove that they were unable to handle their responsibilities, and that they are unable to live marriage the way God has prescribed. The right for remarriage in this case would therefore be seen as a praise to failure. Know that God, who as it is, hardly bears divorce, is not ready to praise you for your failure, by allowing you to remarry.

 

And to come back to the unfaithfulness of the woman which appears to be an excuse for man, know that a normal woman, if well treated by her husband as God requests, can never find herself in the arms of another man. This means that the unfaithfulness of a normal woman is also blamed on her husband. For if the husband showed himself irresponsible and did not know how to take good care of his wife, if he did not know how to treat his wife with love and gentleness as the Lord does for His Church, he will take on the folly of his wife. Remarriage would therefore not be granted him. If he did not know how to take good care of the first wife, it is not the second wife that he will treat well. He narrowly escapes the judgement of God by divorcing, but will not escape the second time if he attempts to remarry. Therefore God did not say "except for marital unfaithfulness" to give men a pretext for divorce. And if despite everything you divorce, since that can be tolerated, do not tempt God the second time by remarrying.

 

11.4- A normal woman

 

Allow me to come back to the expression "normal woman" which I used a while ago. I have chosen to talk of normal woman so as to establish the difference with witches. Know that the normal woman makes all her efforts to fear God. Therefore she can never find herself in sexual immorality under normal circumstances. The woman who is a witch, on her part, escapes this rule of normality. A woman who is a witch does not have the fear of God in her heart; and when she chooses to prostitute herself, she does not need to be well treated or badly treated by her husband. This clearly means that you cannot please a sorceress woman. You can treat her as a queen or as a princess, but it will not make much difference. When she chooses to prostitute herself, she does it. In a case like this, the husband cannot therefore be blame for being responsible for her prostitution. It is very difficult, if not impossible to please a sorceress. You could give her everything, but as long as you are not willing to accompany her to Hell, it will be impossible for you to please her.

 

You will certainly ask me now the question to know whether remarriage is possible for men whose unfaithful wives are witches. The answer is no. Even in this case remarriage is still not tolerated. Do cases of legal or tolerated remarriage exist before God? The answer is yes.

 

11.5- Legal remarriage

 

There is only one case of legal remarriage before God; it is that of remarriage made after the death of one of the partners. This means that a widow or a widower is free to remarry. "A wife is bound by law as long as her husband lives; but if her husband dies, she is at liberty to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord." 1Corinthians 7:39. This is the only case of remarriage without any risk before God.

 

11.6- Tolerated remarriage

 

There are also some rare cases of remarriage tolerated before God. It consists notably, on the one hand, the case of those who divorced in the world before knowing God, and whose reconciliation is no longer possible, and on the other hand, the case of those who got married in the world, and as soon as one of the partners believes in God, the other decides to leave.

 

For the first case, we must understand that marriage even when it takes place in the world, is valid, and is recognized before God as marriage; and the divorce made in the world also counts as divorce in God's sight. The only difference is that, those marriages made in the world are mostly founded on very bad bases, far from the knowledge of the laws of God, and the divorces resulting from them can be classified under past sins. When these persons who divorced in the world give their lives to Jesus, pastors must seek to know why they divorced, and also see if reconciliation is possible. When reconciliation is not possible, and there are so many reasons surrounding this impossibility, they should be allowed to remarry in the Lord. Amongst the reasons that could make reconciliation impossible, there could be the fact that the other partner is already remarried, or if it is established by men of God that the other partner is a sorcerer, or if it is realised that such marriage should not have even been allowed at first.

 

For the second case, the passage of 1Corinthians 7:12, 13 and 15 helps us to understand in what context such a case could be considered. "But to the rest I, not the Lord, say: If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is willing to live with him, let him not divorce her. And a woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. … But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But God has called us to peace." 1Corinthians 7:12, 13 and 15.

 

Considering how crafty man is, and considering also the fact that many agents of satan hide in Churches and pretend to be believers, this second case is very delicate, and very complex to examine. Men of God must be very careful when they have to take a decision in such a case, lest they are caught in the trap of the agents of satan who know very well how to bypass the word of God, and who know how to make up lies so that the word of God is interpreted to their advantage. Before validating such a case, you must take as much time as you need, and carry out all possible investigations, to really make sure that it is the unbelieving partner who actually chose to leave, and especially that he/she was not pushed out of the home, either directly or indirectly, through the wickedness or the hardness or cunning of the believing partner.

 

11.7- Conclusion

 

To end up, I would like to remind all those who call themselves Christians that Children of God are strictly forbidden to remarry after divorce. If you believe to be Children of God, know that if because of the hardness of your hearts you happen to divorce, you must no longer think of marriage.

 

I am also anxious to warn those who accept to get married to divorced people. Know that if having already become a Christian, you got married to a divorced person, you are actually living in adultery. Also know that, if as a Christian you choose to get married to a divorced partner, you are committing yourselves to living in adultery for the rest of your life. You now understand well why in such a case, only Hell is awaiting you.

 

Do not forget that, committing a sin is different from living in sin. When you commit a sin, you can ask for forgiveness from the Lord, no matter how serious the sin is. But when you voluntarily choose to officially and solemnly live in a sin, you cannot expect any forgiveness, since you are not even asking. To voluntarily and with full knowledge decide to officially live in a sin, is choosing not to recognise that sin. And when a sin is not acknowledged, we cannot repent; and without repentance, there is no forgiveness. If therefore, you believe that the word of God which says adulterers will not inherit the kingdom of God is true, also know that God will not deny Himself to please you.

 

Know then dear brothers and sisters, you who are already married and whose partners are still alive, before thinking of a new marriage no matter what reason you might bring up to justify your intention, know that remarriage can be for you a wide door to Hell. Even before approaching the men of God to ask them to examine your case of remarriage, consider that your desires of remarriage draw you closer to Hell than to paradise.

 

Permit me to remind you once more, that marriage is something sacred in God's sight, and must not be broken. This is what justifies the fact that some divorces lead directly to Hell. And if God in some cases can tolerate divorce, He does not give a green light to the divorcees to plunge themselves at will into folly. If divorce can at times be treated with a bit of softness, remarriage after divorce on its part, is treated with the greatest rigour by God. Those who have divorced or who are at the verge of doing that, and who thought they could remarry, must therefore be very careful. And those who wanted to divorce with the hope of remarrying afterward, would better do everything possible to manage their marriage well.

 

12- DIFFICULTIES

 

"My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing." James 1:2-4.

 

Beloved in the Lord, I could not end this teaching without awakening your spirit on the real meaning of the walk with God. The way to eternal life is strewn with difficulties. No matter what position we are in, we cannot avoid these difficulties. Whether you fear God with all your heart, or whether you do it your own way, you cannot escape the difficulties of life here on earth. This aspect was well developed in the teaching on suffering. I would like to come back to it specially, in this teaching on marriage. Let us meditate together the following passages:

 

"So Jesus answered and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel's, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come, eternal life." Mark 10:29-30.

 

Persecutions here are not only external; they also come from our flesh. Do not forget that internal persecutions, that is, the desires of the flesh, often press heavily on us than external persecutions.

 

"Then He said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?" Luke 9:23-25.

 

"If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple." Luke 14:26-27.

 

"And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me." Matthew 10:38.

 

"Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works." Matthew 16:24-27.

 

"In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honour, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith, the salvation of your souls." 1Peter 1:6-9.

 

And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:3-5.

 

"Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy." 1Peter 4:12-13.

 

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen." 1Peter 5:8-11.

 

"Then He looked at them and said, what then is this that is written: 'The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone'? Whoever falls on that stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder." Luke 20:17-18.

 

Whether those who fear the Lord or the cowards who choose to run away from God thinking that the walk with God is very difficult, nobody escapes the difficulties of life on earth. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Chief Corner Stone, He is indispensable. Every human being will bow before Him. Those who choose not to submit to Him voluntarily will find themselves obliged to do so.

 

"He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God." Revelation 2:7.

 

"He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death." Revelation 2:11.

 

"He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it." Revelation 2:17.

 

And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations: he shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter's vessels'; as I also have received from My Father; and I will give him the morning star. Revelation 2:26-28.

 

"He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels." Revelation 3:5.

 

"Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. And I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of Heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name." Revelation 3:11-12.

 

"To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne." Revelation 3:21.

 

There is an important element that you should note here beloved, it is the fact that the Lord in these passages, is not addressing the married, He is not addressing bachelors, He is addressing His Church, that is, all His children, or if you want, the Christians. If there were no battle to fight, the Lord would not talk about overcoming. If there were no difficulties to be faced on the way, the Lord would not have insisted so much on the fact of becoming an overcomer. And if this message is addressed to all the Children of God irrespective of their marital status, then you need to arm yourselves to face difficulties, no matter what option you choose.

 

Do not forget that another powerful weapon of satan against us is discouragement. Be steadfast and always look up to the reward that awaits us before the Lord. Do not fall into the trap of discouragement. No matter what situation you are going through, no matter what difficulties you are enduring, do not give in to discouragement. Know that it is the Lord our God who has the final word, and know that no earthly suffering lasts for ever.

 

"If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory." Colossians 3:1-4.

 

Even if it happens that you sin against God, do not let discouragement carry you away. The Lord is the only one who justifies. "Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us." Romans 8:33-34.

 

Weep before God, confess your sins and get back to battle. Always keep in mind that satan constantly does all he can so as to push us far beyond our strength, but: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Romans 8:35. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. Hebrews 12:4.

 

"For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again, but the wicked shall fall by calamity." Proverbs 24:16.

 

"Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door! My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and patience. Indeed, we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord, that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful." James 5:7-11.

 

Know that all those who served the Lord before us did not escape from the difficulties of life on earth. All of them showed courage and defied the obstacles of this pilgrim journey on earth, before having access to the Lord's rest. Do not think we shall escape beloved.

 

"For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin." Romans 7:14-25.

 

I heard some fools saying that Paul wrote this passage of the book of Romans while still in the world. Did Paul write any epistle when he was an unbeliever? Do not let yourselves be deceived by these agents of satan who mislead you through false testimonies and who give you the impression that God answers all their prayers, including the senseless prayers which they make, and who keep telling you how things always go on very well with them. These satanic testimonies are conceived to give you the impression that God does not love you, or that God has abandoned you.

 

"But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified." 1Corinthians 9:27.

 

Dear brothers and sisters, with all these passages we have just read, we understand that difficulties neither stem from marriage nor from celibacy, but from the life on earth. Having said that, whether you are married or not, you do not escape and you will not escape difficulties. Therefore, let the Children of God who are burning and who want to go into marriage as quickly as possible, thinking of fleeing difficulties, understand that other forms of difficulties await them in marriage. Therefore, there are difficulties out of marriage, and also in marriage. And God who knows both situations tell us that marriage is more complicated than celibacy.

 

My beloved brethren, whether you are married, or unmarried, or divorced, or a widow, I encourage you to stand firm for the few days that we still have here on earth. Do not allow discouragement to distract you from the glory that awaits you before the Lord. May the God of glory strengthen you in the warfare!

 

Sing with me this wonderful hymn:

 

As Christian I'm in exile on the earth,

But all is well, but all is well;

Being in danger, all day long facing death,

But all is well, but all is well.

Why all the tears, or terror or sorrow?

Christ is in me today as tomorrow;

Soon in Heaven, at His feet I shall bow,

Yes, all is well, yes all is well.

 

Here there's weeping, distress, tribulation,

But all is well, but all is well;

Christ has given me a full salvation;

Yes, all is well, yes all is well.

Vainly this world with all its false pleasure,

Tried to keep me away from God's treasure,

I trust in God's love that's without measure,

Yes, all is well, yes all is well.

 

I surely expect a bright tomorrow;

All will be well, all will be well;

By faith I can sing through days of sorrow,

Yes, all is well, yes all is well.

Soon the world and its lust will pass away,

Pilgrim moves on, take courage everyday,

The Lord's promises shine with cheering ray;

Yes, all is well, yes all is well.

 

13- POLYGAMY

 

Polygamy is the fact, for a man, of being simultaneously married to several women. What does the Bible say? In Genesis 2:24 the Lord says: Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. This helps us to understand that from the very beginning, God had wanted that if a man should marry, he should only marry one woman. We equally read in 1Corinthians 7:2 "Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband." From these passages, it is clear that God speaks of his wife and not of his wives. The notion of couple is so well defined, a man has right to only one wife: Polygamy is therefore not a divine institution, it is of men.

 

It now becomes easier for us to understand that polygamy is forbidden in the midst of true Children of God. Therefore, if a man accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and becomes what the Bible calls "a born again", if he legally gets married to a woman and chooses to remarry another woman, while still with the first, he has simply chosen Hell. Such people must be sent out of the Church, if they were still there. Know that this second marriage may be legal before men, because there are countries that accept polygamy; but for such a man who has already passed through water baptism and who claims to be a child of God, this second relationship is forbidden before God.

 

Why is it that it is Hell that awaits such men? This is because they entangle themselves in sins for which they will not repent. Repentance as you already know consists in asking for forgiveness from the Lord and abandoning the fault committed. In a case like this, the sin to be confessed is adultery and repentance would consist in separating from the second wife. Now the second woman is legally married before men and before the worldly law to which the husband has chosen to submit himself. Since he has chosen to rebel against God's law, the law of the world takes its effect. Therefore, by rebellion, he has wilfully chosen to despise God and the word of God, and to bind himself forever in adultery; and for this reason, he is rejected by God.

 

Dismissing the second wife, no matter what reason, would be to plunge himself into a condemned divorce, that is to say, a divorce that is not permitted and that will never be forgiven. And this man cannot even dismiss the second wife on the pretext that he does not want to be polygamous, since he knew very well before committing himself. The man who chooses to rebel against God in this way, plunges himself into a sin without a way out, the only exit being Hell. You should however know that true Children of God never rebel against God to the extent of preferring Hell. If therefore, you find so-called Christians who plunge themselves into such a folly, just understand that they are children of satan, demons.

 

You should therefore be very careful before playing with God. We have met some demon pastors of so-called Pentecostal churches, who are married and who take a second wife before everybody's eyes, saying that "Abraham himself had two wives". Never imitate such sorcerers, you already know that they are of satan, and they themselves know that they are of Hell fire. Do not imitate them. They commit these stupidities so as to mislead the weak minded. Know very well that polygamy is strictly forbidden for Children of God.

 

Nevertheless, in the church of the Lord Jesus Christ one can find people who are polygamous. In the church of the Lord, we can find people with many wives. How is this possible? There are many countries in the world where polygamy is legalised. If therefore a man, living in one of these countries where polygamy is authorised, got married to many wives before knowing the Lord, he will certainly find himself in the Church, with his wives if they also accept the Lord. And cases like these are common in countries still practicing polygamy. Know that such brethren are accepted by the Lord in the same way that He accepts you. They are also Children of God and equally have access to eternal life as you. The only thing they will never have in the Lord is the title of elder.

 

Polygamous men will never be elders in the Church. The Lord disqualified them. 1Timothy 3:2 says, "An elder then must be blameless, the husband of but one wife… " Titus 1:5-6 says: "For this reason I left you in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are lacking, and appoint elders in every city as I commanded you - if a man is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of dissipation or insubordination." The polygamous man himself, is the husband of many wives, and hence disqualified. More so, rivalry amongst the women and/or conflict amongst the children of the respective wives, disqualifies him from being a model that the Lord requires from a leader.

 

I have met several pastors who by ignorance request from such brethren to put away some of the wives so as to remain with one. I told them that it was a big mistake. Those women having being legally married, are recognised as such before God. Putting them away would be a sin. Moreover, we know that if they got married it was to flee sexual immorality because they could not live alone. And according to the law of their country, they were legally married. Putting them away means pushing them into prostitution, the very prostitution which they thought to have escaped by getting married. This solution that entails putting away some legally married women so as to stick to one is therefore not of God.

 

I also reminded these pastors that it is a real disaster to judge the things of God without considering the mind of God. When polygamy is legalized in a country, a pagan who, not knowing the Lord yet, married many wives legally is in order according to the law of that country which is also recognised by the Lord. And all the people of that place recognise all his wives as being legally married. When their husband is being asked to put them away, whom do you think will take them as wives? Few men are willing to take a divorced woman as wife. This means that these women who committed no sin, and who were not concubines but legally married, will spend the rest of their lives on earth in great misery, misery that is not from God, but from pastors' ignorance, this is abnormal.

 

To put away a legally married woman, there must be a tangible reason, in the same way when sending somebody out of the Assembly of Children of God. A woman must not be put away just for fanciful reasons. This is a question I usually ask these pastors who support the fact that those married women should be put away for no reason. "Let's assume that you were this second or third wife legally married that is being put away, for no reason; let's assume that this woman that is being asked to be put away for no reason was your sister that you love dearly; let's also assume that you were the son of this woman that is being asked to be put away for no reason, will you not curse God and the Church of God?" If such a woman were accused of adultery, or sorcery, or insubordination, that would be quite understandable. But she is not accused of anything. Her only sin is the fact that she got married in the world and in ignorance. Whenever you put yourself in the place of others, you understand more easily the meaning of the decisions you take. Matthew 7:12 "Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets."

 

And for polygamous brethren who in ignorance or under the counsel of pastors put away the other women with whom they were legally married, if these women that they dismissed are not witches, they should try to take them back and take care of them with their children. I indeed make it clear that if they are not witches, because a brother can never be told to repent and go and bring back a witch. Understand generally that a child of God can never be told to follow a sorcerer partner nor be told to repent in case of problem with a sorcerer partner, and go after him or her.

 

14- MARRIAGE AND TRADITION

 

I would like to draw the attention of brethren who are in countries where customs and traditions are still in fashion. Be careful never to fall into the trap of observing pagan and ancestral traditions and customs: They are purely satanic. You must flee from all the pagan practices and the different traditional ceremonies that take place in the villages.

 

In fact, I do not even need to remind you of these things. You know yourselves that parents who have not accepted Jesus Christ, and who are still worshipping human skulls and bones, and who offer sacrifices to demons, cannot at the same time render a true worship to God. This means that all their practices and the different ceremonies they make are devotions to satan. And by carrying out these practices, they are actually signing pacts with demons. Know that if you sign pacts with demons, you risk suffering from it for the rest of your life. Do not fall into this kind of trap.

 

You must equally watch in order not to yield to the pressures of the pagan family. It happens very often that, when a spouse dies, especially when it is the man who dies, that his parents, if they are pagans, fight to get back the corpse of their son, in order to carry out their abominable practices. And in such cases, they try to oblige the sister who has become a widow, to follow the corpse in their village, so as to go and conform herself to the satanic practices that they often carry. You must never, and I indeed say never, give in to the blackmail of those sorcerers.

 

Servants of God on their parts must watch never to yield to such rubbish. They must also watch in order not to allow a sister to go and submit herself to the customs of sorcerers, because the consequences are so terrible. You should never take part whether closely or from a distance to such abominable practices which they carry out in the villages, whether it consists of widowhood, or any other ceremony connected to the dead, or even a special dress to be worn for a deceased partner, or the shaving of heads as some do.

 

It is the same thing with inheritance. You should never fall into the trap of getting married to the wife of your late brother, for men, or to get married to the brother of your late husband, for women. Run away from all worldly practices, customs and traditions. Once more, know that if you sign pacts with demons, you risk suffering from it for the rest of your life. If you value your salvation, do not make a pact with demons.

 

"Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people." 2Corinthians 6:14-16.

 

15- WHAT IS NO LONGER TAUGHT

 

15.1- Celibacy better than marriage

 

Today, Children of God are no longer taught the fact that they can serve God without being married. On the contrary, those who are not married and those who are still to be married are made to believe that they are unfortunate or cursed. What does the Bible say? Let us examine together 1Corinthians 7. This chapter begins with an exhortation not to marry (1Corinthians 7:1) Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman; and ends with an exhortation not to marry (1Corinthians 7:40) But she is happier if she remains as she is, according to my judgment; and I think I also have the Spirit of God.

 

Such a teaching is simply foolishness in the sight of the Christians of today; a real proof that the people of this generation have totally abandoned God. All what is of God appears strange to them, and all what is not of God seems very normal to them. Let us examine the following passages:

 

Matthew 19:10-12 "His disciples said to Him, "If such is the case of the man with his wife, it is better not to marry." But He said to them, "All cannot accept this saying, but only those to whom it has been given: "For there are eunuchs who were born thus from their mother's womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He who is able to accept it, let him accept it."

 

1Corinthians 7:8 "But I say to the unmarried and to the widows: It is good for them if they remain even as I am."

 

1Corinthians 7:26-27 "Because of the present crisis, I think that it is good for you to remain as you are. Are you married? Do not seek a divorce. Are you unmarried? Do not look for a wife."

 

1Corinthians 7:28 "But if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. But those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this."

 

1Corinthians 7:37-38 "Nevertheless he who stands steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but has power over his own will, and has so determined in his heart that he will keep his virgin, does well. So then he who gives her in marriage does well, but he who does not give her in marriage does better."

 

1Corinthians 7:20-24 "Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called. Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it … You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. Brethren, let each one remain with God in that state in which he was called."

 

Where have these passages gone to, in the teachings of today? Has the Bible changed? Has God asked the pastors to rather teach what pleases them and not what is written? Of the numerous teachings given in the false churches nowadays on the subject of marriage, none of them makes mention of these passages of the Bible, as if they do not exist. Do you not find it surprising? The pastors of satan have censored these verses. Just go round the so-called churches today, and you will see what the teaching on marriage has become: a real bait to attract all those who could not find partners in the world. In order to attract the crowds and fill halls today, the so-called pastors promise marriage to every one who is not married yet and who desire to get married.

 

15.2- What is taught instead

 

15.2.1- The spirit of marriage

 

Some have now created what they call "the spirit of marriage". They fill churches with the demon of sensuality, which they call "spirit of marriage", and make incantations on the Children of God so that they should have a burning desire for marriage. And, as soon as the poor faithful begin to burn, these sorcerers quickly unite them with other agents of satan. Through their seductions, they deceive the faithful, and make them to think that these pacts of Hell which they are made to sign, are true marriages from God. These serpents having chosen Hell, want to take all others with them. They deceive the unstable, the weak, and the Children of God who have narrowly escaped from the coming wrath. To the pastors of satan, marriage has become a trap through which they get hold of and maintain captive the very few Children of God who could still follow and serve the Lord freely. The agents of satan always succeed through marriage in holding captive the few Children of God who are awaken and zealous, who could discover the truth and escape from their folly.

 

15.2.2- Be Married To Become Elder

 

1Corinthians 7:32-35 "But I want you to be without care. He who is unmarried cares for the things of the Lord - how he may please the Lord. But he who is married cares about the things of the world - how he may please his wife. There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world - how she may please her husband. And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction."

 

One even finds pastors who push men into marriage on the pretext that they must be married in order to become elders. They make marriage the condition to become an elder in the Church. While God says that it is better not to marry, so as to attach oneself to Him without distraction, agents of satan teach that the condition for a man to become an elder is to be married. And each time a brother is interested in the ministry and desires to serve God, he is forced to quickly take a woman. What these poor faithful ignore, is the fact that these false pastors want to unite them to sorceresses in order to make sure that they never serve God; for, just as we have studied in the teaching on Spiritual Warfare, a man with a sorceress as wife cannot serve God, even if he so desires with all his heart; his wife being a sorceress will always be there to prevent him.

 

Therefore, understand very well that you do not need to be married in order to become an elder in the Church. On the contrary, it is when you are not married that you can serve God better, without any distraction. You hear Apostle Paul in 1Corinthians 15:10 saying that he laboured more abundantly than all the other Apostles. Why was he able to labour more than the other Apostles? Because he had no family responsibility to absorb his time. He could thus serve God without any distraction. "But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all - yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me." 1Corinthians 15:10.

 

16- IT IS PAUL WHO SAID! … IT WAS FOR THE CORINTHIANS!

 

While some charlatans reject this teaching by saying that "It is Paul who said it", other wizards comfort themselves by saying that "This teaching was for the Corinthians". Be reassured, there is neither Paul's word in the Bible, nor words for the Corinthians. The Bible is the Word of God, and It is addressed to all the Children of God, as we see in the following passages:

 

Isaiah 34:16 "Search from the book of the Lord, and read: Not one of these shall fail; not one shall lack her mate. For the mouth of the Lord has commanded, and His Spirit has gathered them."

 

2Timothy 3:16 "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness."

 

2Peter 1:20-21 "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit."

 

Revelation 22:18-19 "For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

 

1Thessalonians 4:8 "Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit."

 

While demons say that Paul was addressing the Corinthians, Apostle Paul himself tells you that his teaching is addressed to all the Churches, as we can read in the following passages:

 

1Corinthians 7:17 "But as God has distributed to each one, as the Lord has called each one, so let him walk. And so I ordain in all the churches."

 

Colossians 4:16 "Now when this epistle is read among you, see that it is read also in the church of the Laodiceans, and that you likewise read the epistle from Laodicea."

 

I seize this opportunity beloved, to tell you who belong to God, never to fall into this seduction of the agents of Hell who in order to lead Children of God astray teach them that some passages of the Bible come from Paul, and that other passages were addressed to a particular group, notably the Corinthians. Know that a true Apostle of Jesus Christ, is not the Apostle of a particular assembly or group, but he is an Apostle over the Church of the Lord.

 

And God has well chosen to confound these demons who teach all these follies, by clearly highlighting passages such as those of 1Corinthians 7:17 And so I ordain in all the churches; and of Colossians 4:16 cited above. You can now see clearly here that the letters of the Apostle even though bearing the title: Letter of Paul addressed to a town or region, were read in other Churches. And there is nothing abnormal in that, since the Bible could in no case be the Bible of a few. The Bible is the Word of God, which is addressed and applied to every generation of people living on planet earth. It has never changed, and will never change.

 

Therefore, understand once more, beloved, as we have made mention of in the teaching on Discernment, that all these so-called pastors or Christians, who try to turn you away from the Word of God by telling you that "It is Paul who said" or that "It was for the Corinthians", or who cite to you other manuscripts, are simply agents of satan, demons. They are not ignorant at all, contrary to what you might think. You should flee from such wolves, and denounce them, if you still hold to your salvation. The Lord has truly warned you against these wolves: "If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds." 2John 10-11.

 

The Bible, which the Lord has chosen to put at our disposal, has sixty six (66) books, and nothing more. And in the Bible, there is neither the word of Peter, nor of John, nor of James, nor of Paul. The entire Bible is the Word of God. And in the Bible, there is no word for the Corinthians, nor word for the Galatians, nor word for the Ephesians; the entire Word of God is addressed to every child of God. Every true servant of God, and every true child of God, seed of Jesus Christ, knows this. So, you should never again fall into the trap of demons whose main mission is to recruit you for Hell. He who is able to accept it, let him accept it.

 

If we were to believe these demons, and accept that the epistle of Paul to the Corinthians was addressed only to the Corinthians, and that the epistle of Paul to the Colossians was addressed to the Colossians, and so on, we would found ourselves today with nothing in the Bible addressed to us. Whether you are Africans, or Americans, or Asians, or Europeans or others, you would no longer find in the Bible an epistle addressed to you. Henceforth, the epistle to the Corinthians would be addressed to the Corinthians, the epistle to the Colossians addressed to the Colossians, the epistle to the Romans addressed to the Romans, and so on and so forth, the Gospels would be addressed to the Jews; the Old Testament being completely out of date, and nothing would be addressed to the Africans, nothing to the Asians, and nothing to the Westerners. Conclusion: Let us eat, drink and rejoice, for the Bible does not apply to us. Flee from seduction! Escape from seduction!

 

These agents of satan who reject the teachings of the book of Corinthians by accusing Paul of being the author, have their lips sealed when they are confronted with the teachings of the Lord in Matthew 19:10-12 cited above. The Lord Jesus shows us clearly in this teaching of Matthew 19:10-12, that, although marriage is not forbidden, it is not the best option at all. It reveals to us here that those who because of the kingdom of God, choose not to overburden themselves with marriage are wise instead. He ends by adding: He who is able to accept it, let him accept it. This teaching is therefore not difficult to be understood. The only problem is that there are some stubborn-hearted who voluntarily choose not to understand what is not pleasing to them, even when everything is clear. They only approve a teaching as true when they can make business out of it.

 

You find people who after reading this teaching, although it is clear enough, look for arguments to dispute it. As soon as they understand that the Bible teaches that a man may not marry for the sake of the kingdom of God, they try to contradict by saying that, God said right from Genesis that "a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh." Genesis 2:24. They insist on the fact that it is God Himself who spoke in Genesis, as if it were satan speaking now in Matthew. We have understood this very well by examining the teaching on discernment. Since the people of satan are not of the truth, they will never accept it. They find and will always find ways of contesting the word of God.

 

17- MULTIPLY, FILL THE EARTH

 

You find other hardened who, always in a contesting spirit, tell you after following all the explanations given in this teaching that God asked people to multiply. They add that if people do not marry, how would the earth be filled? This implies that all the other passages of the Bible will never mean anything to them. They only go through the Bible to look for little elements that help them to justify their follies and their stubbornness.

 

Genesis 1:27-28 "So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

 

They recite like parrots that it is God Himself who said "multiply". In this passage, the only thing that interests them is the word multiply. The rest of the passage means nothing to them. They do not ask themselves whether while they are still trying to multiply and fill the earth, they still have the authority to subject it, and rule over the fishes and the sea, over the birds of the sky, and over every moving animal on earth.

 

The teaching as you yourselves notice it is clear enough. But since they are not ready to accept such a teaching, they always go after some verses that they can twist, so as to fight the teaching. Being of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith, they always oppose the truth. 2Timothy 3:8-9.

 

One day when I finished giving this teaching on marriage somewhere, another stubborn-hearted, in order to insinuate that I asked people not to marry, told me it is written somewhere in the Bible, that in the last days, some will forbid people to marry. I immediately asked this serpent to show me where in my teaching I have forbidden people to marry. I asked him to go through my teaching again, and show me what is not Biblical in it. I asked him whether of all the verses cited he found one that was of me. Being confounded, he pulled himself together and had no other choice than to keep silent. Agents of satan are only there to fight us, and even when they find no arguments against us, they create them. When they cannot withstand the wisdom that the Lord has granted us, they look for elements to discredit us, and to accuse us of having said what we have never said.

 

It is in this same manner that their brothers worked in the past. They spent all their time fighting the servants of God, by accusing them of everything. Allow me to refresh your memory with this example of our brother Stephen, in Acts 6. "And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people. Then there arose some from what is called the Synagogue of the Freedmen (Cyrenians, Alexandrians, and those from Cilicia and Asia), disputing with Stephen. And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke. Then they secretly induced men to say, "We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses and God." Acts 6:8-11.

 

18- DEVIATIONS AND TESTIMONIES

 

Beloved, there are so many deviations with regard to the teachings on marriage and its practices, in such a way that if we were to enumerate them all, we would write them in several books. I shall give you some of these deviations, and also some testimonies on how marriage has become a useful tool in the hands of the agents of satan nowadays. I believe that by the grace of God, these few examples which I give, will be enough for you to catch from now on all demons who will attempt to lead you astray through false teachings on marriage.

 

18.1- The rib

 

Demons have already created all possible satanic teachings so as to seduce the ignorant. There are some deceivers who teach that it has been scientifically proven that there is a rib missing in men, and that by counting all the ribs of a man, we notice that easily. They develop a whole satanic theory around that, and come to the conclusion that the moment God removed one of the ribs of man to create the woman, the equilibrium of man was destabilised, and that this equilibrium is only restored when man finds the missing rib. After that, they quote this passage "God said it is not good that man should be alone." With this, they demonstrate to Children of God that they must find their missing rib. Thus, they ask brethren to find their missing rib in the assembly, for as God says that it is not good for a man to be alone, it is a curse for a man to be alone. These sorcerers tell the same rubbish to young girls, by telling them that they are the missing rib of a man, and that they must seek their origin.

 

With these types of incantations, whenever you go through those assemblies of sorcerers today, you notice that all the young people are engaged, including the youngest of the so-called youth group. When a young man is converted and happens to be a bit closer to a sister for whatever reason, the "owner" of that found rib quickly tells him: "My brother you are trespassing on my yard". And at times it ends in quarrels. When it is a young woman who has given her life to God, young brothers rush toward her so as to "take care of her" and find in her their missing rib. All the youths in the church, including the minors, speak only in terms of contributing money for the sewing of their future wedding gowns. Every one fights in order not to be under the "curse".

 

That is how demon pastors take along with them all the faithful to Hell. If you are in such dustbins, come out rapidly. And if you were engaged, break that satanic bond quickly, and come out immediately from such an abominable sect, in order to escape from the satanic pacts that the sorcerers' pastors were about to make you sign. These same demons tell you that a man who is alone is not a full-grown man, and that a man without his missing rib, is not a complete man. They say that every human being has a rib somewhere. They oblige young people through their seductions, to be bound to witches whom they cause them to call their rib. And when these sirens woo brothers, these pastors of satan tell the brothers not to push these women away, while telling them that it is God bringing these women to them, just as He did with Adam, when He brought Eve to him, Genesis 2:22. They also quote the verse, which says, "God made man a helper …" Genesis 2:18. With all these incantations, the brethren who were pushing those mermaids away, end up letting themselves be swallowed up.

 

18.2- Extract of a teaching

 

This is an extract of a teaching of one of those demons on the topic: The choice of a spouse. "To know the Lord's choice for your spouse, you must have a prayer notebook for marriage, in which you have to describe the type of spouse that you want to have, the characteristics that you want to find in your spouse, their educational level, their height, their shape, their skin colour, the colour of their eyes, etc. You should not forget or neglect anything. Even the gestures that you like must be mentioned. You must submit in detail even your desire as to the kind of presents you wish to receive from your spouse. You must note the details of the marriage, how you want the wedding to be conducted, etc."

 

After this satanic speech, the eloquent speaker asked the faithful to set a fleece in order to request a sign from the Lord for the confirmation of the choice of the partner just as Gideon did (Judges 6:36-40). Even if it is difficult at times to recognise some demons, you do not need a revelation or a prophecy in order to recognise this kind of demon. They are serpents like these who transform the faithful into idolaters. What they are actually asking you to do is to make books of idolatry, in which you will spend time drawing and describing the creatures that you want to worship. They are initiating you into witchcraft, by asking you to create in your mind, creatures that God has not made, and which exist nowhere, for the type of spouse they ask you to describe exists nowhere.

 

You must visualize these non existing creatures, and spend time praying in order to obtain them. Foolish! You too, you submit yourself to such idiocy? Where is your intelligence? Are you still so naïve? If you are tied to the grass you will certainly graze on it! Do you really need me to tell you that the kind of spouse with all the characteristics that you like, up to details, does not exist any where, and will never exist? Even if you were to manufacture your spouses in laboratories, they will never be exactly what you want, with all the details. These serpents go as far as quoting this passage of Psalms 37:4 "Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart." They tell you to physically describe your spouse on a paper, in details, with all the desires of your heart, and God will grant them to you.

 

Stop allowing yourself to be degraded and stultified by serpents. Show a little wisdom and intelligence; if not make use of your common sense. Do you want to ask God to go and specially create for you what does not exist yet? Understand today that you will never have the type of spouse that you want, with all the details that you desire. If you intend to get married, be ready to accept a spouse with their few qualities, and their many weaknesses. And that is what will constitute your cross in marriage. That is why God talks of tribulation in the flesh, for those who get married.

 

18.3- Remarriage

 

I would like to share with you this testimony of a demon pastor. It concerns a serpent pastor, who had got married, divorced and remarried. When the Children of God ask him why he had divorced and why he had remarried after his divorce, he said that he had described on a piece of paper the characteristics of the woman he wanted to marry. He had therefore made his list with all the details and presented it before God. But he waited for some time and God did not answer quickly, and he thought God would not answer. He therefore took a sister in the church and got married to her. Some time later, he met a new so-called sister, and this one fulfilled all the characteristics he had described on his piece of paper. He therefore understood that it was his god bringing to him the "desires of his heart". With that he could not disobey his god. He had then put away the first wife, and got married to the new one.

 

Beloved, here is a testimony. That is the type of venom that serpents go round assemblies today to spread. While they are blundering in this manner, their host pastors are clapping. They shall meet the Lord in the days ahead. And when Children of God try despite everything to prove to these serpents that remarriage is not allowed before God, some say that Jesus was addressing the Pharisees, others say that only people who are in the ministry have the right to remarriage, and that this privilege is reserved only to pastors.

 

18.4- The sect of pyramid

 

There are sects that assign women to men, and men to women, according to their own satanic criteria. Amongst these criteria, you have the social status of the couple, their intellectual standard, the social position of their families, etc. Let me give you an example of these sects. It concerns a satanic sect whose doctrine is based on the Egyptian pyramid, with a narrow summit, and a widened base. This pyramid is based on what they called "disciple makers". That means that when you bring somebody in the sect, that person becomes your disciple, and will be submitted to you all his/her life, and you become their disciple maker. The person who is a disciple will also become a disciple maker, and so the chain continues. Every disciple must submit himself/herself to their disciple maker, and report to them. The disciple maker, who is also the disciple of somebody else, will equally give an account, and so on and so forth, up to the summit. What the disciple maker decides is what the disciple must execute. These sects with pyramidal structures are numerous in the world, under various denominations.

 

Before continuing with the points of skids that I will develop, I would like to call on all the true Children of God who are in such sects to come out as quickly as possible. Know that the mode of functioning of these sects is purely witchcraft, based on the spirit of the Egyptian pyramid. In this sect, when a young man wants to get married, he is assigned a wife according to his purse and according to his influence. A poor young man, or a young man from a poor family, will never get married to a young rich woman or a young woman from a rich family. For those who choose themselves their future wife, their choice is refused by trick, when it does not fulfil the criteria of the sect. Several engagements are so broken every time, and one of the partners assigned to somebody else.

 

You can only find a mixed couple in this sect by accident. By mixed couple here, I refer to a couple in which one of the partners is rich and another poor, or in which one partner has a high qualification and another a low qualification. Let me give you an example of such a couple accidentally and inadvertently mixed. I arrived in a country once, a country where this sect is implanted. As soon as I held the first conferences, exposing the false doctrine and the various skids found in so-called revived churches today, news went round. It was then that a young man, having followed the echoes of the teachings that I had given, tumultuously came to see me, and told us his story. Here it is:

 

This brother of this sect of discipleship, who had been in that sect for thirteen years, and who in addition was one of the leaders, was engaged for four years. And since that time he could not get married, because every time his masters kept on turning him round in circles, and trifled with him in turn, as one would play with a ball. He was going from one disciple maker to another, and each time, one would refer him back to the other. He committed the sin of coveting a woman that did not correspond to his social class. Not only was he from a poor family, but he had no diploma. The woman that he was coveting had a diploma and had wealthy parents. Since these two persons loved themselves, it became difficult for the agents of satan who were leading them to break up that engagement. They therefore had to use tricks as usual. These agents of satan craftily went to exert pressure on the boy, asking him not to marry the girl because she was not spiritual, and they also went to the girl to exert pressure on her, asking her not to marry the boy because he was an illiterate. They went on with this game for about four years but never succeeded in convincing their preys. Finally they had simply rejected the idea of celebrating such a marriage. And this brother was fed up, he was really sick of it all.

 

The moment he followed what I was teaching, he ran up to me. He therefore explained to us all that mafia, as well as the other witchcrafts which were taking place in that sect. I explained to him all the false doctrine of that sect, and advised him to come out from there as quickly as possible. He followed my advice, and decided to come out from there. He therefore made up his mind to flee from folly, and to walk from now on according to sound doctrine. A few days after his commitment, the demons of that sect learnt that he had escaped from the sect, and that he had decided to walk according to the truth. They informed the high hierarchy. These sorcerers knew that if they allowed this boy to leave, that could open the eyes of the other captives, who would free themselves from their bondage, and escape from the sect. They held a meeting for that matter, and called him back right away, to tell him that they were giving him the green light to get married. And since the woman for this brother took precedence over God’s glory, he fell into the trap of these sorcerers, and accepted their offer. In just few days, they unconditionally celebrated the marriage that had been dragging on for four years, and that had even been already rejected. Here is how serpents hold Children of God captive. You might think that they are ignorant, they are not at all. They are working for their master satan, and are fighting to go to Hell with as many people as possible.

 

It is a sect that is surprisingly filled with intellectuals, but blind intellectuals, who only have understanding for the things of the world, but are alienated from the things of God. They all read the Bible, but none of them wonders from what Bible their teachings come from. They are never amazed, and never wonder where in the Bible they find the practices which they observe. It is simply terrible! One would have easily thought that it is only easy to deceive those who have never gone to school. It is false! We can now easily understand that understanding does not come from school, but from God. People of satan always have but darkened understanding, that is why they never get at the true repentance.

 

"Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: 'Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, and seeing you will see and not perceive; for the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them." Matthew 13:13-15.

 

They have developed the system of tithes and offerings register, in order to monitor the purses of the faithful. The greedy, in order to force people to give money, have notebooks to register the names and the amounts that each faithful gives, as well as the frequency of those gifts.

 

They have amongst others the system of notebook for teaching, notebook for prayer, notebook for meditation, notebook for rendering of accounts, etc. which every disciple must keep. And the disciple makers are called to regularly control those notebooks. In those books, must be noted the length of time spent on evangelisation, the number of chapters of the Bible read, the number of persons won, the number of minutes spent in prayer, the time spent on each and every thing, etc. a system of real prison. The faithful spend their time lying, in order to win the confidence of their disciple makers. They have set up Jezebels to lead assemblies and prayer groups, etc. And people put all these into practice without thinking. It's very serious. No one asks questions. They are all like sheep.

 

When their followers came across the newsletters containing the teachings that I give, and started to read them, their eyes opened and some of them left the sect. As soon as the masters of the sect realized that, they took the newsletters and read them to see to what extent they could demonstrate to their followers that my teachings were false. So, they went through all the teachings and had nothing to say about them. But they had to, in any case, find a strategy to prevent their followers from reading these teachings. As people were rushing to get these newsletters, these serpents found the best strategy. They had therefore made announcements in the assemblies, telling the faithful not to read those teachings anymore, because the teachings were true and Biblical, but were destined only to elders, and not to simple believers. And since every disciple must submit unconditionally to his/her disciple maker, the instructions were respected and the poor blind people are still in the bonds of witchcraft and heading daily for Hell, while happy and believing to be serving God.

 

They have made of marriage a real trap for all those who could have discovered the truth and escaped from their sect. They push young people into marriage, without giving them the opportunity to think, so that each and every one of them is bound to the sect. They sometimes go as far as setting the minimum number of marriages that they have to celebrate per year. You hear them asking their followers to pray for marriage because there are many unmarried people in the church. And they commit themselves to celebrate about 100 marriages per year, and at least 500 marriages in 5 years, whereas the number of their followers who are old enough to marry does not even reach the tenth of this figure! And prayer sessions are organised to this effect. That is the method with which these serpents now hold the faithful captives.

 

18.5- For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also

 

Here is a pastor who, on the basis of the Bible, taught that God is against divorce, and against remarriage. And he defended this with a lot of zeal and commitment. There was a brother in the Assembly. This brother, a lawyer by profession was a divorcee, and his wife was still alive and living in the same town. A new sister arrived in the Assembly, and she herself had just divorced and her husband was still alive. She was a dentist and had a private surgery. Sometime later, the two divorcees expressed the desire to get married. The pastor was faced with a difficulty; that of choosing between his integrity with regard to God and the word of God, and these two rich professionals driving Mercedes. The pastor spent some weeks of insomnia, being according to him, caught in a dilemma, and obliged to choose between two great Gods "with matchless equality".

 

On the one hand, Jesus Christ who has made promises "that are at times not seen", and on the other hand, tithes, offerings, and the gifts offered by these two great divorcees professionals, a well-established lawyer, and a dentist equally well established, both driving Mercedes. If it were possible for the poor pastor to choose the two Gods at the same time, he would certainly have done it. Unfortunately, only one choice was allowed. The pastor knew that if he had refused to unite the two divorcees, they would have left the assembly to go and find another greedy pastor who would not certainly miss such a golden opportunity. After several weeks of fighting and discussion with his leadership team, the pastor decided to celebrate the remarriage of those two dogs. Mercedes were more important than Jesus Christ. Poor Jesus Christ! As you would have expected, God departed from that assembly, and satan took total control. This assembly which was yet a good assembly, became a rot which one cannot described. All of them, from pastors to the faithful, now dress in white robes, to signify that they are already in the New Jerusalem. They got there a bit earlier than us. Alleluia!

 

18.6- Marriage based on self interest

 

Because of greed, several persons, including pastors, base their marriage purely on greed. When many young pastors want to get married, their criteria for the choice of a spouse are solely based on the social status of the woman. You should only choose a woman who is working or "who is well off ". That is the reason why many are blinded by what they call "means", and so take as wives Jezebels that would dominate them in marriage, and turn them away from God. You see them all flinging themselves at the few rare girls of the assembly who are working or who have well-to-do parents. That is why many marriages do no longer last today.

 

18.7- Praying for bachelors

 

I have warned you against those sorcerers who go round the churches inviting the unmarried to come forward so that they pray for them. There are also others who go round asking the unmarried sisters to come forward for prayers. And when these sisters get in front, these sorcerers who had already made an arrangement with their sorceress wife, say that it is their wife who must pray for these unmarried sisters, because she too was single for a long time, and for that reason, knows the pain that unmarried sisters go through. After that they allow their witch to pour down incantations on these poor ignorant sisters. Run away from all these sorcerers and witches who want to pray for you so that you have a partner. You have now followed very well the teaching on marriage, and you now know that marriage is not what you thought before. Escape from all possible follies, and do no longer allow yourself to be caught in the trap of satan.

 

18.8- Praying for marriage preparation

 

There are other sorcerers who ask the mothers in the church to bring all their daughters to the prayer room, so that they pray for them in order to prepare them for marriage. And the mothers bring all their daughters, including those that are less than ten years old, for prayers. Know today that these sorcerers have been making but incantations on your daughters, and this constitutes initiation into witchcraft. And when they are successful with their initiations, they possess your young daughters and transform them into other agents of satan. You should therefore be very careful. If you were unfortunate to have gone through such initiation or cause your daughters to go through such initiation sessions, plead with God for your deliverance, or for that of your daughters. They are the sorcerers who, in order to initiate young women, give you the impression that they want to prepare them for marriage. Who told you that people need to be prepared for marriage? These same sorcerers often oblige brothers to have a bank account before coming to see them for marriage. If you are in an assembly where such follies are practiced, come out from there immediately and look for another Assembly.

 

18.9- Blackmail

 

Some demon pastors use the post of responsibility in the church as a means to blackmail. These serpents tell their followers that any person who wants to hold a post of responsibility in the church must first of all get married. And they create many useless posts of responsibility so as to distract and seduce the faithful. At times there are more posts of responsibility than the number of faithful. Others impose on everyone a sum of money which must be acquired before a marriage is celebrated. And if this sum is not reached, there will be no marriage. And with the sum collected, the demon pastor takes what he calls "his stamp", after that "his right", and finally "his tithes", of marriage celebration. Here is how agents of satan have transformed marriage into a real profitable business today. If you find yourself in such satanic churches, come out from there rapidly! There are also mad men, who request motivation letters from the faithful, and in such motivation letters they must describe the type of partner they want, their height, their appearance, their age, and all other characteristics that they want, and the file must get to the highest hierarchy.

 

18.10- Marriage-Deception

 

This is an example of marriage-deception. It concerns a brother who wanted to get married, and asked for the hand of a "sister" in the same assembly. This so-called sister was a sorceress prostitute, who already had a child in the world. With the help of her mother who also was a terrible witch, she hid from her future husband, her status of unmarried mother. With the complicity of her sorceress mother, she presented the father of her daughter to her fiancé as being her uncle. To the extent that the poor fiancé bought suits to the lover of her sorceress, thinking he was offering gifts to his future uncle-in-law. The marriage was finally celebrated in a great Pentecostal denomination, in the midst of pompous ceremonies with white gowns and all what you can imagine. As soon as the brother got into marriage with his sorceress wife, who more over was a twin, he realised that he had been deceived by two terrible vampires, that is, his wife and his mother-in-law; he escaped the marriage without wasting any time. The famous marriage that was accomplished with yet great ceremonies in a so-called living assembly, ended up in divorce in less than a month.

 

I asked you in this teaching, never to get married to somebody without making all possible investigations on the person. And true servants of God must never take the risk of blessing a marriage without a thorough knowledge of the two partners.

 

18.11- Hasty marriages

 

Be careful with hasty marriages. Many reasons, most of which obscure, are hidden behind hasty marriages. At times, they are young people living in sin, and as soon as there is pregnancy, they want the marriage to be quickly celebrated, so that it will appear as though the pregnancy was contracted in marriage. At times there are also pastors who have gone after sisters, and as soon as those sisters are pregnant they quickly want to organise marriage with brothers so as to give the impression that those brothers are responsible for the pregnancy. At times it is one of the partners who sets a trap for the other one, or hides things from the other partner, and wants the marriage to be celebrated very fast before the other partner discovers the truth, etc. Whatever the case, you should not fall into the trap of getting into hasty marriages. Servants of God should never give in to pressure from the Children of God who want their marriages to be celebrated very rapidly, and Children of God should never accept when pastors take the initiative to hasten the celebration of their marriage. Behind hasty marriages, there is always something hidden. Therefore you should never give a green light to a hasty marriage.

 

18.12- "Do not set your mind on high things"

 

I met one day a young christian who became mad, that is, mentally ill, after their apostle robbed him of his fiancée to give to his own son. This very zealous young man, wanted to get married. He had found a beautiful woman in the assembly, and was engaged to her. But the girl was too beautiful for the apostle to allow her to get married to a young brother from an unknown family. He therefore broke up the engagement and gave that sister to his own son who was simply an unbeliever. That is what churches have become today. Not only do we find elders with unbelieving children, but these unscrupulous elders break up the engagement of young christians, so as to give a christian girl to their pagan son. Alleluia! After that disappointment, that young brother was so much affected that he started to be delirious, and has unfortunately never recovered from the shock. So he remained confined to the house, mentally handicapped. As for that great apostle of a "true" pentecostal church, he is presently rendering worship to the virgin Mary. The insanity has not only struck his young victim, but it has also turned against him.

 

18.13- Forced marriages

 

I recommend to the young people never to accept any marriage imposed on them by their pastors. Know that all those who impose marriages on you are agents of satan. And it is always a trap that they set before you. God will never impose any marriage on you. On the contrary, just as we have studied in another part of this teaching, God instead encourages you to serve Him without being married. Understand therefore that all those who impose on you the contrary of what the Lord expects from you, are serpents coming from the satanic world, to recruit people for Hell. It is simply because you are ignorant that you call them pastors. They are demons. They know that their time is over, and for that reason, they fight to turn away the maximum of people from the glory of God. Do not fall into their traps, if not you will regret it forever.

 

Those sorcerers in other to seduce the Children of God, put pressure on them by telling them that they must accept the will of God whether they like it or not. They tell them that they must accept those women imposed on them, by demonstrating to them that it is God who said it. And when the brothers attempt to explain to them that they do not love the women imposed on them, these serpents seduce them by telling them that God at times gives us what we do not like, and what we do not want. They tell them not to "yield to satan". They tell them that satan always fight against the will of God, and that it is satan causing the brothers not to have love for those women. They encourage them to fight against the idea of rejecting those women, and to submit themselves to the "will of God". And these monsters of the deep tell brothers that by getting married to those women, God will end up putting love in their hearts for them. Know that those women imposed on you by these serpents are sirens belonging to the same circle of witchcraft like them. If you fall into their traps, you will regret it bitterly.

 

It is only when those sirens have not succeeded in getting you through their incantations, that their colleagues pastors intervene, by using their authority as pastor to get you. You must therefore run away from all these serpents without wasting time. Now that the Lord has opened your eyes, also do your best to inform as many brethren as possible, so as to help them escape from these traps of satan. I encourage you to share this teaching with as many people as possible. By so doing, you will win all those who are of God. These wicked do not hesitate to tell the faithful that "to multiply is a commandment from God", and that "Whoever does not get married to multiply, violates the law of God; it is a terrible sin". You should no longer allow yourself to be led astray by those sons of perdition. You now know that choosing not to marry is not a sin, but rather a great blessing. Understand that nobody has the right to impose marriage on you. It is left to you to choose whether you want to get married, and if yes, the one whom you want to marry.

 

18.14- Lotto

 

We equally find satanic pastors who have turned marriage into lotto games. They organise prayer sessions, during which, they ask people who want to get married to write their names on pieces of papers. The names of girls are placed on one side and those of boys on the other. The pieces of papers are mixed up, and papers drawn at random, while praying that God who knows the heart should permit that the pieces of papers that will be chosen each time, should correspond to people who can live one with the other. A name is drawn out each time, one from the boys' side, and the other from the girls' side, and they are crossed, as a scientist carrying out genetic crossbreeding during his experiments. This is the extent to which sorcerers pastors play with marriage

 

18.15- Prophecies

 

Prophecies after prophecies on marriage, followed by contradictions mount up in the assemblies without any person noticing. You have prayer sessions on marriage, during which prophecies attribute partners to members of the group, amongst whom are people already engaged officially. There are also prophecies that attribute partners to people, amongst whom are people already married. Run away from all prophecies talking about marriage.

 

18.16- Counselling groups

 

In many dustbins that you call churches, agents of satan have created what they call counselling groups, groups mostly made up of vipers, who are called to counsel couples. These fools who are unable to manage their own homes, are called to counsel other married people. And in those so-called counselling groups, you find many Jezebels, women who are renowned for their insubordination and their rebellion. And these agents of satan take advantage of this puppet group to know the problems and difficulties of the various couples, and through this, they hold couples captives. It is equally through all the information that you give them during counselling sessions that these serpents make incantations against you, so that your marriage does not prosper, but that it goes from one problem to the other, in order for you to constantly depend on them. Know that a true pastor or a true elder can assist you when you have some difficulties in marriage. You do not need a group of mentally sick people to do that. Also know that no woman has the right to counsel couples.

 

Understand once more, that those so-called counselling groups are an abomination before God. If you think that you are Children of God, come out from all these forms of dustbins called churches. But if you feel at ease in folly, the days are coming when you will understand. I encourage you to make the effort to live according to the Lord, so that your couple is not one which will constantly be the subject of trial. It is not interesting at all. You should not expose your intimacy. You must know how to wash your dirty linen in the greatest intimacy, and with great discretion. Be wise and become mature Children of God. When a woman is not submissive, peace becomes a rare commodity in the couple. It then becomes very difficult to resolve problems. And when the husband is brutal, intolerant and imperious, living in harmony becomes very difficult in the couple.

 

18.17- Other testimonies

 

1) The clubs of witchcraft have all created what they call marriage committees, establishments in which these sorcerers decide how to get people paired off, or how to cross the agents of satan of their clubs, with the few Children of God that are there. In these clubs it is the pastors that impose partners to the faithful, according to the criteria dictated to them by satan their master.

 

Some of these clubs assign women to men according to their ethnic group, or according to the weight of their bank accounts. When two brothers are interested in the same woman, the woman is given to the highest bidder or to the one from the same ethnic group as the pastor.

 

2) Many sorcerers spend time today initiating the faithful, by giving them the impression of praying for them to break curses so that they can get married. And after those cursing prayers, they invoke the demons of sensuality and the demons of immorality, and they tell their faithful that they have released the spirits of marriage upon them.

 

3) There are other pastors sorcerers' apprentices, who organise prayer sessions, during which they ask young sisters who want to get married to pastors to stand up. After that those demons make incantations on the girls who stood up, and designate those amongst them who will really become pastors' wives. You do not need me to tell you that the girls that have been selected are those that these sorcerers have already chosen in their dark circle, so as to assign to agents of satan who are already pastors, or who will become pastors.

 

The people of this generation have reached a degree of blindness beyond understanding. These sorcerers carry out all these follies, and the faithful still continue to believe that God is in their midst, and that He is really behind such abominations. It's very surprising!

 

4) This case concerns a deacon of a great and renowned pentecostal denomination. This deacon was engaged to a young woman who had just arrived in the assembly, and who had a baby less than six months old. Not only was this young mother still breastfeeding, but she was not even baptised in water yet. While waiting, the church had already engaged her to a deacon. It was just a short time before marriage that this young unmarried mother was baptised. Look to what extent pastors undermine marriage today.

 

5) This other case concerns a young brother who was engaged to a young sister, and their engagement had been approved and announced in the assembly by the pastor. Meanwhile, a new brother came into the assembly, and this new brother was a well-to-do brother. The sorcerer pastor in order to block and maintain this new and rich brother in the assembly, broke up the engagement of the first brother which he himself had announced, and gave the young sister to this new rich brother. The first fiancé was so much disappointed and frustrated that he escaped from that satanic sect, and changed town. Fortunately, he did not abandon the Lord as many do when they are victims of such mafia in the so-called churches.

 

6) There are greedy pastors who, when they are to get married, ask each faithful to contribute a high sum of money, and to set aside a big present in addition to the contribution. As if this is not enough, on top of all that they collect, these sorcerers organise pompous feasts at the expense of the faithful.

 

7) In some assemblies, pastors and faithful fight for the same sister. And in that case, there is "crossed intercession" on the same girl. Generally in such situations, the pastor often take advantage of his authority, puts the faithful "under-discipline" and gets married to the sister.

 

19- STUDY OF 2CORINTHIANS 5:17

 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

 

I would like to warn you against other seductions that satanists convey everywhere. I heard some sirens, that you call women pastors, testifying that they were great prostitutes in the world, and that as soon as they accepted Jesus, they became virgins again. And these witches do not even speak here in the spiritual sense; they talk of virginity in the physical sense. They soil the ears of those listening to them, by explaining how when they went with their husband for the first time, he exclaimed "but you are a virgin, I can't believe this".

 

There are also serpents preachers, who go everywhere to deliver teachings on marriage, and who deceive young people, by telling them not to be afraid of taking former prostitutes as wives. To better deceive them, they give their own testimonies, saying that their wives were renowned prostitutes; but that when they believed, their jesus renewed their genitals, and they became virgins again. And they heap up their shame to the limit by explaining that after they went with their wives for the first time, they themselves could not believe that their jesus could do such things. And as soon as they finish pouring out their venoms, sorcerers and blind people begin to applaud. To back up their follies, they quote the passage of 2Corinthians 5:17.

 

Beloved, stop yielding yourself to seduction! Your ignorance and your blindness ought to have some limits. Come out of your sleep while it's still time. You must no longer believe all these incantations without thinking. Know that God will never make a former prostitute to become a virgin physically. God forgives the former prostitutes, and He forgets their faults, just as he forgets ours. But He will never change the genitals of former prostitutes, in order to renew them as agents of satan claim. When a woman has lost her virginity, she has actually lost it. Whether it is accidentally or voluntarily, there is nothing more to be done.

 

When the word of God says: If any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new, this shows and demonstrates to us the great mercy of God who forgives us, and grants us the opportunity to begin with Him on new bases. This shows us the grace of God which accepts us by forgetting what we were at first, and which now makes us spiritual people, living beings, from dead people that we were. This passage must not be used for the purpose of seduction.

 

When a woman had been a prostitute in the world, the scars remain, even when she believes in God. If during her prostitution she had abortions, this will affect the rest of her life. There are some who lose their fallopian tubes and / or their womb in their criminal acts. Once they are converted and confess their abominations, God forgives their faults, and can choose to still give them children if He wants. But He is not obliged to do that. It is not in an automatic way that this is done. It is for that reason that I asked you to be careful during the choice of your spouse. Even though the Lord forgives all our sins, even the most abominable ones, the scars of these faults remain at times. It is the case notably of the sins of witchcraft and the sexual sins. The children that you had while in the world will not disappear when you give your life to Jesus. The fallopian tubes that you physically got removed while still in the world, will not reappear automatically when you give your life to Jesus. Even though God is able to redo all things or to renew all things if He wants, He never does it automatically. Many traces of witchcraft practice often remain on those who signed pacts with satan. You should therefore not wrongly interpret the passage of 2Corinthians 5:17 to lead yourself and others astray.

 

20- CONCLUSION

 

Rather than revolting against this teaching after reading it, as many often do, you should revolt against yourself, against your abominable deeds, and against your hardened heart; for it is only in this way that you can get to repentance. You cannot get to repentance without having a broken heart, and only the truth breaks the heart. Instead of allowing the prophecy of 2Timothy 4:3 and 4 to be fulfilled on you, you'd better off thinking of the joy and glory that await the overcomers with Jesus Christ for all eternity. "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables." 2Timothy 4:3-4.

 

Do not be afraid to suffer and cry while abiding in obedience and in the truth, for in the next few days, the Lord shall wipe away all your tears. But for all those who instead choose to rebel and revolt, for all those who rebel and prefer to take all possible shortcuts, not only will they not escape the present tears and sufferings, contrary to what they think, but in addition, their tears will not be wiped away by the Lord, for they shall weep for all eternity.

 

If marriage when it's well made glorifies God, celibacy for the glory of God glorifies God even better, 1Corinthians 7:38. Therefore, instead of spending time in the Church invoking the demons called "spirits of marriage", you should rather pray that the Lord grants grace to many of His Children to fully devote themselves to Him in order to serve Him without distraction.

 

"But I want you to be without care. He who is unmarried cares for the things of the Lord - how he may please the Lord. But he who is married cares about the things of the world - how he may please his wife. There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world - how she may please her husband. And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction." 1Corinthians 7:32-35.

 

Marriage is a distraction simply because it will not be of any use to us during eternity. Marriage between a man and a woman is earthly, and will remain earthly. Therefore, nothing of that nature will accompany us in eternity. "For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in Heaven." Matthew 22:30.

 

For you teachers of the Word of God, you who still have a little fear of God in your heart, I plead with you to teach the entire Word of God, and not just a part of it, and not the few aspects approved by those who listen to you, and not the chosen pieces that will amuse your flock and encourage them to fill the offering boxes of the church. If you voluntarily or involuntarily abandon the word of God, so as to teach what you want, you will render serious accounts to God. Know that the riches and glory of the world are but for a moment, whereas heavenly riches and glory last forever.

 

It is not because you are married that you should induce all Children of God even sometimes against their will, to marry. Teach the entire Word of God, and leave it to each one to choose how they want to live for the Lord. Remind those who are already married and those who want to get married that marriage is a good thing. Also remind those who are not married and those who do not want to get married, that celibacy for total consecration unto the Lord is the best of the two options. But do not fall into the trap of forcing people not to marry, as done by the catholic sect that does not give priests the opportunity to choose freely what pleases them and what they can bear. The Lord has told us in His word: "Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry,…" 1Timothy 4:1-3.

 

Therefore, let everyone know that getting married is good, but not getting married in order to devote oneself to the Lord is even better. If the Lord speaks to us about marriage in terms of slavery (1Corinthians 7:21), or in terms of tribulation (1Corinthians 7:28) or uncleanness (1Corinthians 7:34), or in terms of distraction (1Corinthians 7:35), it is not to forbid marriage, it is to set us free from the ignorance that has always made us believe that happiness is found in marriage.

 

If we started this teaching by deploring the fact that the people of God are destroyed for lack of knowledge, let's not forget that it is because we have rejected knowledge, that God rejects us, (Hosea 4:6, 2nd part). It is because we have rejected the truth and feel at ease in the diluted gospel, in the gospel of lies and seduction, that we perish.

 

Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love!

 

Invitation

 

Dear brothers and sisters,

 

If you have run away from fake churches and would like to know what to do, here are the two options available to you:

 

1- See if around you there are some other children of God who fear God and desire to live according to the Sound Doctrine. If you find any, feel free to join them.

 

2- If you do not find one and wish to join us, our doors are open to you. The only thing we will ask you to do is to first read all the Teachings that the Lord has given us, and which are on our website www.mcreveil.org, to reassure yourself that they are in conformity with the Bible. If you find them in accordance with the Bible, and are ready to submit to Jesus Christ, and live by the demands of His word, we will gladly welcome you.

 

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you!
