Wolves among sheep

Jesus made it pretty clear: “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.”

There are wolves and sheep. If you are not a sheep, you are a wolf. Period. Something that really confuses and stirs a righteous anger within me, is when churches invite wolves onto the pulpit of their church. I have worked with someone in the past who says they are a Christian but none of their works show it, in fact, they show quite the opposite. But, when he wants to go speak at a church, they will have him come right up onto the pulpit and talk. In fact, not too long ago, I heard how the church had invited him and dozens of non-Christian kids to the church to hear him speak.

Since when do shepherds open the gates to hordes of wolves?

Churches, pastors, fellow brothers and sisters, we need to stop this. We need to stop welcoming wolves among the sheep! Especially letting them lead the sheep! A wolf only leads one way: back to its pack. Whether that person has “good” intentions or not, they will follow their fallen human nature and bring destruction.

We need to have strict restrictions on who is allowed to teach in our churches. The places where Christians look to be fed the Truth of God. Instead, we are bringing people up who will only preach destruction into the congregation! This needs to stop. Stop letting the wolves lead!

The truth about divorce

In the beginning, God created Adam and Eve. He did not create any other humans. If Adam were to divorce Eve, there would be no one for him to marry. He would be alone. The same obviously would go for Eve. Divorce was not even an option that God gave His first children.

The Hebrew word for “divorce” is “ker-ee-thooth” and it pretty much means “divorce”. Fairly simple. The first time it appears is in Deuteronomy 24:1.

When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.

The word uncleanness here is a fairly broad term. There are several things you could tie this to but the most obvious one would be sexual immorality. The Son of God Himself in Matthew 5:31 and 19:3-9 gave us some more insight on divorce. The main one being 19:8:

He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Even Jesus said that from the beginning divorce was not an option. It wasn’t even a “thing”. There was no such thing as divorce. The word “suffer” here means to allow but it does not mean to approve. God may “suffer” you to divorce, but He does not approve of it. In fact, Jesus stated there is only one reason that a divorce is allowed, without committing adultery, and that is if your spouse has committed a sexual sin. Although many divorces can fall within this category, it is not the cause of every divorce.

Notice that in the beginning with just Adam and Eve, there was no way for either one to commit adultery. It is the only one of the Ten Commandments that Adam and Eve could not break. There was no one else. Just Adam and Eve.

In the end, divorce is always something that God does not approve of. He will allow it for one reason, and that reason is adultery. Any other reason to divorce just leads to more sin.

For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.

Ye are My witnesses, saith the LORD, and My servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He: before Me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after Me.

I, even I, am the LORD; and beside Me there is no saviour.

I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are My witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.

Yea, before the day was I am He; and there is none that can deliver out of My hand: I will work, and who shall let it?
