These scriptures right here, God has had me in Nehemiah.
But these right here are what I need to do to all these men who marry out the will of God!
Nehemiah was serious about this issue!
God has declared that the men receive the choice that He has ordained for them.
When He goes outside the boundaries set for the choices God has prepared for him, and choose a woman whom God has forbidden to him, he brings trouble upon his life.
Staying away from strange women who draw men away from God, is commanded.
God knew that pagan, worldly, ungodly women would be a snare to a man’s soul.
So men, if you marry a woman who was forbidden by God, expect to have conflict, confusion and discord in your home when her heart is turned to other gods!
“In those days also saw I Jews that had married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, and of Moab: and their children spake half in the speech of Ashdod, and could not speak in the Jews language, but according to the language of each people.
And I contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair, and made them swear by God, saying, Ye shall not give your daughters unto their sons, nor take their daughters unto your sons or for yourselves.
Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? Yet among many nations was there no king like him who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin.
Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our God in marrying strange wives?” Nehemiah 13:23-27.
