DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE. 
What does the bible have to say? N.B :This is for the heavenly minded. I have seen many questions about remarriage after divorce in this group so please read this. God hates 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." But because of the hardened heart of men,God gave Moses the instruction to allow men divorce their wife and they can also remarry too. Deutoronomy 24:1-2. This was in the old testament before Jesus came to fulfill the law. But when the pharisee asked Jesus about divorce, he answered them in Mark 10:3-12 “What did Moses command you?” he replied. They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away.” “It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law,” Jesus replied. “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become ONE FLESH.’ So they are no longer two, but ONE FLESH. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. He answered, “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits ADULTERY against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits ADULTERY." In the bible passage above Jesus's answer was so clear and simple, but I wonder why people still try to justify remarrying after divorce. If you must divorce your wife or husband, it must be because of sexual immorality. And if you choose to divorce instead of forgiving and moving on then you must remain Unmarried until your partner dies. If you remarry while your partner is still alive then you are commiting adultery. Other bible passages such as Matthew 5:31-32, Luke 16:18 and Matthew 19:9 also said the same thing. Romans 7:2-3. For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he LIVES, but if her husband DIES she is RELEASED from the law of marriage. Accordingly, she will be called an ADULTERESS if she lives with another man while her husband is alive. But if her husband dies,she is free from that law, and if she marries another man she is NOT AN ADULTERESS. According to this bible passage above,the only condition that allow a man/woman to remarry after divorce is if their partner dies. Death( and not divorce papers or the jugde) is the only thing that can separate the two that God has joined together. Matthew 19:6 " So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Many use 1Corinthian 7:15 (But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace.) as an excuse for divorce, without readying the whole chapter. This bible verse said the believing partner is not enslaved or bound or in Bondage, this means that the believing partner should let the unbelieving partner go because you can't force them to stay. This bible verse never mentioned that they can remarry. And before then Paul said in 1Corinthian 7:10-11 "To the married I give this charge (NOT I, BUT THE LORD): the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, she should remain UNMARRIED or else be RECONCILED to her husband), and the husband should not divorce his wife. If you notice the bible passage above you will see that Paul emphasized the fact that what he was saying is from the lord, and in verses 12 downward he gave some advice based on his own opinion and even though it was his opinion, it still didn't contradict what he said through the lord. 1Corinthian 7:12-15" To the rest I say (I, NOT THE LORD) that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he should not divorce her.... But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace." And in 1Corinthian 7:39 Paul rounded up by saying " A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord." God's intention and plan about marriage is for the two to be together till death part them. Marriage is a covenant and it can only be broken by death and not by man or divorce papers. So in case you are divorced for one reason or the other and you are heavenly minded, then you can't remarry until your divorced partner dies. That is why it is better to allow God lead you to marry the right person than to lead yourself into a wrong marriage and to start wishing your partner dies so you can remarry. But this is a hard saying only the heavenly minded can take it..... I pray that the lord will heal every marriage at the edge of divorce and he will reconcile divorced partners back together in Jesus name....Amen. Shalom!!!
