He is married! Why are you “dating” him?

Hello all,

Last post for the day! I am so tired! I’ve slept for only about 10 hours in the last 60 hours!! I am exhausted but the Lord is my strength! Shall have a good night’s rest and be up and ready tomorrow! AMEN! Firstly, thank You God! Yesterday we celebrated, getting another 1000 views in 3days. But the Lord has topped Himself as always! Between yesterday and today we have gotten another 1300 views!! Yesterday saw a record number of views; 856 views in one day!!!

Thank You Lord and thanks to all the readers, commenters, sharers, everyone! I am grateful to you all, may the good Lord continue this work and bless you as you all partake! I pray He will embrace you, mould you, teach you and befriend you! I pray knowledge, wisdom, power and strength will be released to you and it will empower you to further pursue God, discover your purpose, maximise your potential and impact other lives. AMEN. Remember, I can’t do it alone; neither can you. Let’s all put our hands to the plow!! God bless and prosper you all. AMEN!!

Now for our last Word for today!! The inspiration to write this post came to me about a month ago! I attended a Christian seminar about marriage; there were about a thousand people there. It was very interesting and empowering; after the message, the audience members were given the chance to ask questions. So, those who had questions were invited on stage to ask. Men, women came on to ask very intelligent and thought provoking questions, the answers gave us more insight. Then, a lady asked this question “What if you are a woman, in your 40s, never married and somebody proposes to you but he is married. He wants you as second wife”. The whole room went noisy in utmost amazement; she was clearly referring to herself. Sweet looking mature woman who had been waiting but was now considering going “settling” for second wife. I was amazed, as was everyone else. The questions arose, doesn’t she know Christians don’t practise polygamy? Was she joking? Are some Christian women really prepared to enter into a polygamous marriage?

So, I decided we need to cover the issue of dating or marrying an already married men! Very simple and short, once a man and woman marry, in God’s eyes, they are married for life. We all know this Scripture in

Mark 10:9- What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

“Let no man put asunder” includes the married couples themselves, the divorce court, the mistress,whoever contributes to the ruining of the marriage!

Have you noticed what God says about divorce?

Malachi 2:16- “For I hate divorce!” says the Lord, the God of Israel. “To divorce your wife is to overwhelm her with cruelty,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. “So guard your heart; do not be unfaithful to your wife.”

You can see that God hates divorce so much and forbids it!

Matthew 19:9-  And I tell you this, whoever divorces his wife and marries someone else commits adultery—unless his wife has been unfaithful.”

Except on the grounds of adultery- The only the God permits a married person to get divorced is if their partner has been involved in adultery. What does that say to you? Adultery must really be a huge disdain to Him? Remember that all sin is sin but sexual sin is the only sin that a man commits against his own body that includes all forms of sexual sin, fornication, adultery and so on. The Scripture above speaks millions.

The rest of this post, is going to be different! I will just show you some Scriptures about adultery and let God to the talking. Let the Word of God speak for itself; there are three people referred to; the innocent married person, the adulterer married person and the adulterer’s object. A woman dating a married man commits sin, even if she didn’t know he was married, because even if he was single, they are not meant to fornicate. So, read the Scriptures below and may God send the message He wants you to receive. AMEN.

Malachi 2:14- You cry out, “Why doesn’t the Lord accept my worship?” I’ll tell you why! Because the Lord witnessed the vows you and your wife made when you were young. But you have been unfaithful to her, though she remained your faithful partner, the wife of your marriage vows.

Proverbs 6:32- But the man who commits adultery is an utter fool, for he destroys himself.

Hebrews 13:4- Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery.

Corinthians 6:9- Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

You may be a woman who had made it a habit of getting involved with married men and you want a change. There is still hope; look at what Jesus said-

John 8:3-11- 

As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd.

“Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery. The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?”

They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust.

When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman. Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”

“No, Lord,” she said.

And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

I hope this has blessed you and inspired somebody to stand for righteousness!! God bless you all. AMEN!!
