Some of you wont like this post, because you are “Divorce Happy.” But Kingdom marriages, Kingdom relationships, are under extreme attack and the most unusual thing is that the source of the warfare will be from our intimate family members or those who work closely with us in ministry.
The devil knows that the power of agreement between a husband and wife is one of the most powerful forces in the earth and he will do anything to break that connection.
This is the hour for husbands and wives to band together in love and unity in a greater way.
The mandate upon these marriages will be a great in this hour to achieve what needs to be done in the earth. The enemy is driving a wedge between couples to bring defeat and to bring a spiritual breach so that the covenant of oneness is broken and destroyed.
The enemy is speaking to the minds of those who are not spiritually alert or empowered by prayer to leave their spouses to walk away from the family they have created, to leave even their spiritual responsibilities without explanation or reason.
They don’t even know for themselves, why they are mistreating their spouse, why they are walking away, why they are no longer interested in obeying God.
It’s different spirits operating against the husband and wife. The enemy is using lust,, adultery, perversion, witchcraft, Jezebel, Delilah, Ahab, and leviathan to compromise against men and using lasciviousness, seduction, mammon, greed, pride, python and witchcraft perversions against the women.
Marriages are falling apart because many have allowed intruders into their intimacy with their spouse. No matter what people say, when God brings a man and woman together as husband and wife, their relationship supersedes all other relationships in their lives.
Fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, and not even children are to come between the relationship.
They are one, period! No debate. No argument. Nobody can change it and the marriage relationship is the only one were God proclaim that they are to forsake everyone else and operate as one flesh.
So many marriages are being dissolved for foolishness and one of the number one reasons in this hour is the inability of the couple to know how to balance marriage and ministry, and put them in their right perspective.
People are talking about divorcing because one feels like they are more anointed than the other, or they see somebody else in ministry whom they feel matches their anointing.
We also have the family interference, where the father thinks no man is good enough for his daughter or the mother is jealous of the wife because now another woman has taken their son’s attention.
Parents are trying to destroy the marriages because they feel like they losing their control over their child’s life. You also have leaders trying to destroy marriages because they secretly want the spouse for themselves, or their union will produce a ministry that is greater than theirs, or they are going to lose faithful financial support.
Yes, marriages are at war, but we can safeguard them by:
- fasting to keep our flesh in subjection,
- praying so we can war against the temptations that come;
- reading the word so that we can be strengthen in our mind will and spirit;
- communicating with our spouses, so that they can know when we are struggling with anything that can cause trouble within the relationship,
- spending time with each other, so that we can continue to keep our love and interest in each other active,
- being intimate with each other, so that we don’t give the enemy space to cause us to feel rejected or lonely and most important,
- spending spiritual time together, so that God will remain the foundation of the marriage and the source of strength in the relationship and home.
People, marriage is a beautiful and wonderful thing if we understand it’s a ministry ordained by God.
Often trouble heartache and pain is introduced because one or both spouses don’t understand the true meaning of love commitment unity trust or have had a bad experience with love and has not been healed of it’s hurt!
I’m yet praying for marriages extremely hard, because I don’t want to see another marriage die because of some foolish reason.
We Not Called to Pour in Every Well
Sometimes we are trying to pour into those who have no desire to receive the oil that we are issuing out.
Some of them have been dry and in reality, there is nothing there no more to produce anything.
We are dealing with wells that don’t want any oil and refuse to accept it.
They love the dryness and they don’t want anything to interfere with their comfort zone and their complacent state. They don’t want the anointing nor the fire. They just want to be in Church, but don’t want Church in them!
They are there like a ‘collectible’ item collecting dust and nothing else.
We have to understand that we not called to pour in every well, so wells are dried up and nothing else will come out of them!
