Marriage - Being Unequally Yoked
The first great law is about the Love of a spiritual union, which is: “The Marriage before the Dawn”.
On the invisible vibrational trackways to a seamless mindfulness, there go the travelers who seek the high thrones of knowledge. In far-reaching crescendos of thought, instinctual drive is by-passed for a conscious mental trip into manifold sub-auditions. In the deep submerged consciousness of mind, one can find at the point of intercentrum where God wisdoms are being seeded.
Go and find the real people who lead seekers to light by the shining of their faces. So then, what is it that is just said? What is said is to follow not so much the people, but to follow the Light from above that is shining in their faces.
Now then, let it be said: Follow not just words, but follow the words that shine with the face of God.
Keep in mind: God’s thoughts are not as the common thoughts of humankind. If the words are just repeats of words that do not open the door of mystery, words that do not breed the Love of God, words that sound like the same rhetoric - incomplete, unfulfilled, and judgemental - then it is time for you who “have an ear to hear” (Revelation 3:6 KJV), to listen, as to what the Spirit of the “Father of Lights” (James 1:17 KJV) has to say:
Please do not assume that the following presentation is a construct for a modern-day conclusion that Scriptural plural marriages or divorces are being suggested or that a licentious style of life is being suggested as the way to go.
As to the proxy marriages of humans on Earth, what does the Light from above that shines through the Bible have to say on “marriage and divorce”:
First to put things in perspective to the importance of this subject:
1. The first and great commandment of spiritual law is: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind (Matthew 22:37-38 KJV).
2. The second and great commandment of spiritual law is: Love your neighbour as yourself (Matthew 22:39 KJV).
Although both of these high commandments belong to the Spirit of Love, the first commandment is about Loving God who is a spirit, and who is in a spiritual state, nevertheless, can be Omnipresent. But the second great command, which is like unto the first great commandment, is to love hearers who are in physical states, who can progress to spiritual states.
Therefore, on these two laws, both the law of the Spirit and the physical law, hang or depend all other laws (compare Matthew 22:36-40 KJV).
Importantly, the first great law is about the Love of a spiritual union, which is: “The Marriage before the Dawn”.
Metaphorically, the second great law is about the Love of two souls in proxy and of the collective souls as the corporate Christ Bride body in proxy of the Wedding before the Dawn. When you “love your neighbor as though you were loving yourself” it becomes an act of removing contrary space so that a spiritual and mental joining can occur. It is such a marriage of merging of which “the Marriage before the Dawn” speaks.
But are some people so unequally yoked they cannot serve in twain to represent the proxy of the Marriage of before Dawn? (Compare 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 KJV).
What if a marriage cannot fulfill the marriage order to be “fruitful and multiply” (KJV), or as it may be said: “produce children and advance in the purpose of life” (MIV). (Compare Genesis 1:22 and Genesis 1:28 KJV; also see Strong’s Concordance Hebrew Dictionary #7235).
What if the lack of producing children is due to a man being impotent? What if the reason a couple may not be able, as a marriage to advance in the purpose of life, is due to incompatible, irreconcilable differences that one or both of the mates may not be willing to change?
There are other reasons that could cause a divorce: in the Old Testament, Ezra, according to teachings of Moses and the prophets, forced Israelites who had married “strange wives” to put them and their children away (divorce and separation). These said “strange wives” were of different nationalities and religion (idolatry was a part of some of these wives’ religion); and accordingly, the interpretation of the law sufficed for Ezra to force their divorce and separation (Ezra 10:1-3 and Ezra 10:10-12 KJV).
This action of Ezra is an example of deciding, according to a viewpoint of the law, that these men, which included priests, were unequally yoked to wives and, therefore, a divorce for each would be proper and correct.
What is valid and what is not valid to use as points of Scriptural reasoning concerning divorce is, of course, a major controversy in the church world.
Even if a married couple is unequally yoked together, it is still possible for the one mate to sanctify the other in the sense of rectifying the difference. By the same token, some mates can and do refuse rectification; and, in such cases, all that remains is for such couples to live it out or divorce (1 Corinthians 7:12-17 KJV).
The major consideration for a lot of Christians is: what does Jesus Christ say about being unequally yoked….. Jesus did say whosoever God has joined together let no one separate (compare Matthew 19:6-9 KJV). It would seem quite confirmed that God would not join persons who would be unequally yoked. A person can feel quite assured in most every case, if persons are married and unequally yoked together, it has nothing to do with God joining them together.
Clearly Jesus taught that: “a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring for good fruit” (compare Luke 6:43 KJV).
“For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes” (compare Luke 6:44 KJV; also consider, since these trees metaphorically represent people and the fruits represent their works, if opposite productions of work are made, might not those opposite works reveal an unequally yoked state?).
Jesus speaks about a man leaving his wife for the Kingdom of God’s sake (as one is advancing into the 100 fold regeneration, Matthew 19:28-29 KJV) and in the same life time (compare Mark 10:29-30 KJV) another wife of manifold benefits (one hundredfold insight) being given to him to replace the wife he left (compare Luke 18:28-30 KJV; in other versions the wife person is omitted. In my opinion this is theological tampering, but in vain, because the mention of the children in the same Scripture implies a wife).
So then, although whether 30 fold, 60 fold, or 100 fold which is all good seed, what is not applicable in the 30 fold life, may be applicable in the 60 fold life; and what is not applicable in the 60 fold life may be applicable in the 100 fold life: therefore, the 100 fold insight mentioned in the verse above allows a different action than a 30 fold or 60 fold state (compare Matthew 19:28-29 KJV).
What if a person marries another person who is not a good seed of the 30 fold, 60 fold, or 100 fold? Then might not it be said that such a person has married a fornicator or that person married became a fornicator, which “fornicator” means figuratively, as in a parable, an ‘apostate’ or an ‘idolater’ (compare Strong’s Greek Concordance Dictionary #646, #647 and #3895 and Strong’s Hebrew Concordance Dictionary #5003). This falling away of a marriage commitment can be of a serious symbolic meaning, far reaching, to even a great Soul past.
Nevertheless, when two persons join themselves together, whoever is the grounding force effects the other person and is dominant (1 Corinthians 6:15-20 KJV). If you marry a harlot mind, the Bible says you become joined to a harlot. This, for sure, can be an unequally yoked condition.
Do not forget when Jesus spoke to the multitudes and persons who were not disciples, He spoke in parables (compare Matthew 13:34-35 KJV). Consequently, when Jesus, in these ministry sessions spoke of fornication or adultery, He was using terms about marriage and divorce such as “fornication” and “adultery” in parables which interpretation-wise referred to ‘idolatry’ or and ’apostasy’, which in turn referred to having a mind that was defecting from God.
When Jesus used parable terms such as “tares” (Matthew 13:30-39 KJV) ”thorns”, “seed” of the “sower” (Luke 8:5-15 KJV), and et cetera, He was speaking about people and their genetic and spiritual states.
The purpose of this expose of the truth is not to provide excuses and reasons for the masses of humans who are part of the constant storm of divorce, but to show that the teaching of some main-line theological ideology that denounces and threatens such persons with an eternal hell was never the intent in the message of Jesus. The message of Jesus was about the Love of God which incorporated the reality of the Marriage before the Dawn.
Jesus well understood the animal herd style of life prevalent in the world, and He knew most humans lived in the brute beast mentality. Regarding people such as these who are brute beasts (Jude 1:10 KJV) and tares sown among the wheat either by genetic passage or by dark forces, Jesus advised to leave them alone until the end of time….. lest in uprooting them, the wheat (the good seed product) was damaged.
Subsequently, His advice was to leave the brute beasts for the animal herd to handle, and to render to God what was in God, and to render to the humans acting on the animal side what was animal (compare Ecclesiastes 3:18 and Ecclesiastes 3:21 KJV).
Only can we understand eternal justification, offered by God to humans, when we have reconciled the Old Testament teachings on marriage and divorce to the New Testament teachings on marriage and divorce.
For instance, David of the Psalms fathered six children in a seven year six month period by six different wives. In addition to those wives and children, David married several other wives and fathered another thirteen sons not counting daughters, nor counting the concubine wives and children.
Four of David’s children, which included Solomon, were born of Bathsheba, whose husband (a faithful military servant of David’s) David had killed so he could take Bathsheba as his wife even though he already had several wives (compare 1 Chronicles 3:1-9 KJV). And yet the Scriptures say that David’s heart was perfect with the Lord His God (1 Kings 11:4; see also 1 Kings 15:5 and Psalms 51:1-17 KJV).
Upon examination of the Scriptures, it becomes clear that the thing that is damning to the spiritual side of a person is being enticed into the worship of idolatry which was a figurative metaphor and description of the Satan world who was exalting uunself as God, and therefore an act of apostasy.
Apostasy was of a paramount momentum because,,,,, for the fall of the angels was provided a “time and a chance” (Ecclesiastes 9:11 KJV) for their redeeming. The fix had to be accomplished during this “time and a chance” configured for each person’s life. Jesus Christ offered His human life and was crucified once for each fallen angel’s “time and a chance”, and there could not be a second crucifixion because the full disbursement of grace was offered already.
Even the other law in the ten commandments (which included idolatry and worshipping other gods) hung on the commandments of Love. Therefore breaking any such law was an abandonment of God’s Love. Metaphorically, as in a parable, fornication and adultery interpreted is as apostasy in the Old and New Testaments as against God.
Solomon, with his one thousand wives, married certain ones who were strongly minded with apostate religions. He was affected by this and lost his standing with God, but Solomon was not lessened in his position with God due to his large number of wives because God looked at that as King animal herd mentality. God is foremost interested in the inner original Soul-spirit person.
Such marriage conduct exampled in the Old Testament is not a hundredfold heart perfection style of life, but could be allowed with exceptions in a 30 fold heart perfection.
