Devil Plus Devil Equals Hell!!!
Saved Plus Unsaved Equals trouble yet hope!!!!
Saved Plus Save Equals Saved:
The only way there will be great problems in this marriage is when one or both people have left Me by getting out of my word, will, and purpose. This relationship has more than a physical unity. They have a spiritual unity. There are actually three people united here; Husband, Wife, and God. There were actually three marriages here that are one; God –Husband, God –Wife, Wife –Husband. This couple though they have one another, this relationship is centered around Me. Their dependency is on Me. Whatever problems may arise, they rest in the guidance and comforts of Me. They have an assurance in Me, in My word for resolutions. This marriage receives and walks in the fullest of My blessing. Where I am, is a continual flow of blessing, not just materially.
Devil plus Devil Equals Hell:
These couples can walk together because they are agreed. Though they are in agreement, they are not united in the things of Me. In this marriage, there follows not blessings; but curses! The two have been united not just one to another, but also to the evils that are with one another. Example: one smokes; the other drinks heavily. Nicotine and drunkard spirits are united. One uses profanity, the other fights. Profanity and fighting are united. One is lazy; the other is a slothful. These two spirits unite. One is a gossipier and the other is a hater of almost everybody. These two spirits unite. One is selfish; the other is conceited. These two spirits are united.
Put all of these and more of the unnamed together, what do you have. Hell!! There are always things going on endlessly. Quarrels….. you drink too much, you curse too much, you’re slow, you’re lazy, you’re selfish, you aint all that, you tell everything, you don’t tell enough, and it goes on and on. In this relationship this couple only has one another and the evil spirits that are with them. They have not me, nor the extra blessing that comes with me. Problem after problem is settled in themselves or what others they bring into the marriage. Many times the problems aren’t settled because every time there is an argument or fight they usually end up going back to the old unresolved issues. Their dependency is on themselves, on one another and on things. When either of the one or even all of their dependencies begin to act up hell breaks loose, because they have no third person unity. No relationship with God. They have no hope. Things are disastrous.
Saved plus Unsaved Equals Trouble yet hope:
In continuance from this week’s discussion on the marriage daughter where one is saved and the other isn’t you can see from the passages of scripture given; the warning of being unequally yoked together with an unbeliever.
Moses as you read in Deut. Gave explicit orders for the destruction of heathen nation in the promise land. He ordered them destroyed and all their possessions. The Israelites were instructed to destroy the altars of the heathen’s gods, the destruction of the high places where the heathens sacrificed women, children, and animals to their idol gods.
Notice how the children were instructed not to give their daughters to heathens or to allow their sons to marry heathen’s women. Why, because they would follow the ways of the heathens in worshipping hand carved deities. The Israelites didn’t destroy all of the heathens as you all can see in Joshua the 9th chapter. They made an agreement by trickery to a heathen nation and destroyed not all the nations.
The danger of marrying heathens was the danger of idolatry. The hearts of the children will turn from Me; the only true God to serve idols. Sure enough these things happened.
The sons married heathen women and in doing so they not only married the women, they also married their cultures, their gods, their religion. As with Solomon they sought to pleasing these wives by any means possible. The heathen women were very beautiful and with some there were no limitations to what they would do. Perverted in many ways these women were and these things excited men. Their heathen children were born and wickedness just passed on from one generation to the next.
Being unequally yoked is a danger. One or the other of the partners has to change to satisfy or to be equally yoked. Many times if the Christian is not sold out he or she will turn away. Many times the Christian is not sold out to me for if they were they’d never yoke themselves in a marriage to an unbeliever. The mistake is being made when the devil plants the deceitful lie in the mind “oh you can get him or her saved”. “You can get him or her turned around”. The Christian begins thinking on this and actually visualizes and imagines the lovely life with a saved mate. The Christian closes his or her eyes and ears to the exhortation from Apostle Paul “be not unequally yoked together with an unbeliever”.
This holds true for friendships and as you say “running buddies”. Running buddies are just what they are called. They will keep you running right out of the will of me and my word. There too are Christians that you can’t be running buddies with. Christian who are carnal and not totally sold out. In thy study of transferring spirits you have seen how that Christians too who are not given fully to me are led about by various spirits. When you’re a running buddy with a gossiping saint you become as he. When you’re a running buddy with a knit picking saint you become as he. When you’re running buddies with a whining saint you become as he. When you’re running buddies with a trouble maker you become even as he or she. Watch these things.
In this people of this day even with some of the old ones has had to be careful of who he calls friend. Satan has deceptive ways of pulling ones out of my will. Some of you fall prey for the want of friends. Some of you are too fearful of men to break away from saints as these.
Give Heed to Whom and Where you Hitch your Wagon.
II Corinthians 6:14-18 II Corinthians 7:1
14: Be ye not unequally yoked (joined or linked) together with unbelievers. For what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness’? And what communion hath light with darkness?
15: And what concord ((unity of feeling or interest agreement, accord, Peace, friendly relations)) hath Christ with Belial (Satan)? Or what part hath he that that believeth with an infidel (unbeliever)?
16: And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols. For ye are the temple of God with idols. For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said (1) promises, I will dwell in them, and walk in them, and I will be their God and they shall be my people.
17: Wherefore come from among them and bee ye separated said the Lord. And touch not the unclean thing and I will receive you.
18: And I will be a father unto you and ye shall be My sons and daughters saith the Lord Almighty.
7:1 Therefore these promises dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
