Learning Warfare through our Spouse


Some of us had to learn warfare from the person sleeping on the pillow beside us.  Often times we marry before we come to The LORD and our spouse remains bound and chained to the world and we are persecuted through the one we love.

It is often in battles that we learn how to deal with every spirit that is on assignment to destroy us.  It’s during this time that we learn how to walk in love, because who we are married to, has now become our enemy, because of our walk with The LORD!

Be it the husband or the wife, when your spouse wars against you it’s a different kind of warfare, because you are connected to this person by a covenant.

It’s crucial that we don’t abort our spouse during this time.

I see a lot of times after an unsaved spouse gives their life to The LORD, that they seem to think that God now gives them the okay to walk away from their covenant.  No you are yet required to stay with your spouse.

What God has joined together let no man put asunder.  Stay and learn your lessons.  Go through your process and stand in the gap for your spouse until God delivers them.

Through that marriage, you’re learning love, patience, long suffering, intercession, prayer watches, forgiveness etc., in the marriage.  So stay right there, because you don’t get a “Get-out-of-your-marriage-free” card!

Learning Warfare through our Spouse — 2 Comments

  1. Apostle you need to elaborate on the fact that, if there is Physical abuse, there must be separation, or sometimes, divorce. I went through this plus adultery with my spouse. I was often told by Pastors to stay. The abuse became worse. I finally left after many years.
