Divorce is not a pretty or positive word to deal with. I, Bro. Pouliot ends up bringing this topic because I believe many of us do not understand what LOVE and family mean? This divorce thing came to my attention after someone has shared with me a question. The main question was, is it okay to write in a form of divorce paper to divorce the spouse? My mind about divorce is forbidden under YAHUAH's eye. In the past, I've never really looked into the scripture enough about divorce, because I’m not married to a wife. When a couple (husband and wife) found a witness in a document that they are joined in marriage. The purpose of marriage is the covenant union of a man and a woman to companionship one another, provision of food and shelter, have children, and protection.
Finding more about divorce in the scriptures often leads to adultery. After I have investigated about divorce along with the subject of adultery, I have learned that divorce is indeed forbidden. Divorce often explained in the book of the scriptures clearly that the couple is not allowed to divorce anytime (Deut/Debarim 22:29) or whoever puts away their wife and marries another commits adultery against her. And if a woman puts away her husband and marries another, she commits adultery as well. Messiah clearly points out this simple message as well.
After learning what the book of the holy scriptures had taught me so far, divorce points out to means detachment, disunion, separation, divergence, disunion, and split-up. I also learn that our YAH, our heavenly Father HATES divorce... Mal/Mal’aki 2:16). He even would NOT separate from us, while HE is always with or calling us [Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 50:1 and Romans 8:38-39] is the whole idea to understand why it's important not to put away (divorced) wife or husband (Mark 10:11). Would a mother, father, or even YAH separate their child? NO!
Scriptures teach that our heavenly Father does not desire anyone to plan on divorce for any such excuse reasons, whether it is a problem or not. Whether they are in sickness or good health, richer or poorer, slave or free by someone else, etc... YAHUAH never want us to have a certificate of divorce since the beginning of creation. Yet, someone may dare point out in the scriptures and claim that we can document a divorce for a good excuse because of adultery as how Moses ruled out this (Matt 19:6-8). This action was only done by Moses’ idea, not by our heavenly Father. Nowhere would we find the commandment law to document of divorce. Once we study the scriptures, we would also find that nowhere does we find a separation of the Ten Commandments (the laws) that would require us to change marriage law. Since the law that was given to us does not (or ever will) change.
The Commandments (laws) are often found clearly explained or referenced in Torah teaching (the five books commonly called The Law), which is Bereshith, Shemoth, Wayyiqra, Bemidbar, and Debarim. The law against divorce and adultery began in the books of Wayyiqra (Leviticus) chapters 21 and 22, Bemidbar (Numbers) chapter 30, and Debarim (Deuteronomy) chapter 22 and 24. All through the other first two books of Bereshith (Genesis) and Shemoth (Exodus) does speak about marriage, which I believe we should read all five to have a better clear understanding of the law and how the first created man (Adam) got a wife. It's good to read again to refresh our memories so that we would not forget. What the law shows us is the way to live correctly. How to respect the law of everything nature is giving to us to live well. I've learned that when a person who became a widow (while their wife or husband had passed away) are allowed to remarry again. This does not concern to be divorced or adultery. That means, it is okay for him or her who had become a widow, he or she is allowed to marry another person who is a virgin or a widow. Since our heavenly Father said, it is not good that the man should be alone, etc... Bereshith (Genesis) 2:18-24.
So the bottom line here is that our heavenly Father would not dare separate from us, as HE does not want us to separate from our partnership wife or husband. If we separate (divorce) our wife or husband, will considerately separate our heavenly Father as well. That disrespect (turn against away) HIS law. Yet, some of us would think that YAHUAH isn't with us, forget us or no longer exist with us would consider that YAHUAH has separation from us; are all wrong about this. Because of two reasons, it is us who we have been turning away against HIM. IF HE isn't with us, we certainly would not be breathing. Since our heavenly Father is the key to the breath of life.
Our Father in heaven said HE did not set His love on us nor choose us because we're more numerous than any other people, for we were the least of all peoples, but because of HE loving us and because of HIM guarding the oath which HE swore to our ancestors, HE has brought our ancestors out with a strong hand and redeemed us from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh sovereign of Mitsrayim (Egypt). And we shall know that YAHUAH, our Creator, the trustworthy that we should maintain guarding the covenant and kindness for a thousand generations with those who love Him and those who guard HIS commands, but if we repaying those who hate HIM to their face, to destroy them. He does not delay to do so with him who hates Him, He repays him to his face. “And we should guard the command, the laws, and the right-rulings which HE commands us “still” today to do them. “And it shall be, because we hear these right-rulings and shall guard and do them, that YAHUAH our Creator shall guard with us the covenant and the kindness which He swore to our ancestors, and shall love us and bless us and increase us and shall bless the fruit of a woman's womb and the fruit of our land, our grain, new wine and our oil, the increase of our cattle and the offspring of our flock, in the land of which He swore to our fathers to give you. Debarim (Deuteronomy ) 7:8-13.
Praise YHUH, (all nations!)
Extol Him, For His kindness (LOVE) is mighty over us,
And the truth of YHUH is Everlasting.
Praise Yah! Tehillim (Psalm) 117:1-2.
That nothing can ever separate us from
HIS’s love as explain in scripture of Romans 8:31-39
For HE hate divorce... Mal/Mal’aki 2:16).
Because... ‘On account... a man will leave his earthly father
and his mother and will be joined to his wife,
and the two will become one flesh’?
So then, they are no longer two but one flesh.
Therefore what heavenly Father has joined together,
man must not separate. Mattithyahu (Matthew) 19:5-6.
