‘FREE’ TO DIVORCE
“If you do not obey the Lord your God… you will be cursed when you come in and cursed when you come out” (Deut 28:15, 19)
Rebellion against God is the most serious threat to a happy life and a successful marriage. Please think of it! If you ignore or actively disobey God’s Word, you shall be cursed (unhappy, to say the least) when you come in (on your wedding day) and you go out (when you divorce). Even with all the prayers said for them in the church on their wedding day, the proud cannot be happy together. This is the decree of God’s Word and it cannot be changed by any man. Except there is deep repentance in both their hearts, they cannot be happily married! Selah!
Queen Vashti behaved exactly like her ‘sister’ Hagar. Abraham organized a feast for the occasion of weaning Isaac. Ishmael, her son, was a teenager by then. Hagar too ‘forgot herself’ and the favor she was shown in the house of Abraham and Sarah. She was a former slave from Egypt. Because she had a son in the house of her master, she became an ungrateful woman. She mocked Sarah and her baby. That sealed her fate. She and her son had to go away forever. For her, freedom meant ‘divorce’. They lost the godly inheritance to be reckoned among God’s special people. This was God’s judgment, not Sarah’s (Gen 21).
‘Fear the Lord and the king… and do not join with the rebellious, for those two will send sudden destruction upon them and who knows what calamities they bring?’ (PV 24:21, 22).
In Christ I declare:
The devil is a loser forever!
I totally reject the evil spirit of pride, rebellion and witchcraft!
I loose myself from any connection with the evil spirits of Vashti and Hagar!
I humble myself under the mighty hand of God!
My marriage is on the altar of God!
My marriage is safe and blessed!
In Jesus name
