YAHVAH Reigns even in Our Private Life
Shalom! In my house, we will serve YaHVaH. People often make the comment, “YaHVaH, please stay out of my bedroom”. That is as if YaHVaH has no domain in our personal life. Father has dominion over our life. Romans 8:7 says, "The carnal mind is not subject to the law, for it is enmity against YaHVaH, neither indeed can be." The false statement that "I'm not under the law" will not hold-up under YaHVaH's perfect judgment.
Adam and Eve rebelled directly against their Creator. Havah/Eve was deceived, but Adam’ knew better, I Timothy 2:14. He meekly followed his wife and gave in to the path of least resistance. All sins of mankind that followed Adam's sin have followed a similar pattern. **
Abram lied about Sarai being his sister when she was his wife. He feared for his life. They did this twice, Genesis 12:10-20, and chapter 20. Later, Sarah and Abraham lacked faith in God's promise to give them a son in their old age and tried to work it out through a "surrogate mother" Hagar.
This was the sin of adultery, a great wrong, Genesis 16:1-5.
Take note of Pharaoh, an unbeliever and compare him to a believer in today’s culture. Here is Pharaoh’s response in Gen. 12:18, “What is this that thou hast done unto me? Why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife?” He did not use any such alibi as one might use today, “I am not under the Law but under grace”.
Idolatry, fornication, adultery and materialism are also modern problems.
Leviticus 18:6-30 Sex sins of Canaanites. No one should practice pagan sins, it will defile the land.
19:20 Fornication with bond maidens.
19:29 Do not prostitute thy daughter.
Leviticus 20:10-21 Adultery, incest, sodomy, bestiality. Death penalties under the civil law of Moses were added, until the time of reformation when the New Covenant was instituted around the year 33 A.D...But still, "The wages of sin is death, and rewards of heaven are eternal life". Romans 3:23
Leviticus 21:7 Do not marry a whore or divorcee (Deut. 22:13-21 what virginity is).
24:22 There is one manner of law for the stranger and for the home borne. This is not for priest only, but for all Israeyl Romans 11, all of us who have been grafted-in to YaHOSHA, King of the Universe.
Marriage is for life (excerpts from WWW.GiveShare.Org )
Churches of God and many Protestant leaders have almost uniformly perverted scriptures such as Genesis 2:24, allowing divorce and remarriage contrary to the Bible. Twisted human reasoning born out of physical lust and perverted minds have come up with all sorts of aberrant ideas supposedly allowing divorce and remarriage, interracial marriage, and even acceptance of homosexuality. We are not talking about Protestants and Catholics. We are talking about avowed Sabbath-keepers. They are not converted inwardly.
One man said that "God didn't condemn David for marrying more than one wife; G_d allows a man to have more than one wife by divorcing and remarrying."
Psalm 51 David confessed his sins and then said, "Create in me a clean heart, O YaH; and renew a right spirit within me."
A minister (falsely) claiming to be "conservative" says that "except it be for fornication" in Matthew 19:9 means "Except it be for fraud or some other problem." Real bad! This is not true
Thousands of Sabbath keepers condemned television evangelist Jim Bakker for his much publicized adultery. Yet these same people are promoting adultery right in the church by accepting, tolerating and promoting false divorce and remarriage teachings.
Suppose you are divorced and struggling to raise a family alone? Or maybe you have never married and can't seem to find the right mate? Satan is bombarding you with thoughts of discouragement, and in many cases, wrong physical desires. Do not yield to sin. If you are divorced or separated from your true mate, do not yield to sin and remarry, which is adultery. If you are eligible to marry, do not hastily rush into an ill-conceived union. Sexual sins and lusts still plague many Sabbath keepers, both men and women. Many ministers actually promote doctrines which encourage sexual sins. We need to rid our lives of these sins.
Invite YaHVaH and The Word in your life to specify what morality (or ethics), even what standard for living will be followed. The standard is The Torah, the Word. Let us invite YaHH into our very lives, our bedrooms and into every domain.
IsaiYah 8:19-20 “If we speak not according to the Torah and the Testimony, we have no light in us.”
Repent and be immersed in the Name of Yahosha see Acts 2:38.
1 John 2:6. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins
Romans 10:9; John 3 “Except a man be born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of YaHVaH.”
Ephesians 2:8-10 For by unmerited favor through faith are we saved, not by meager works of man, least anyone could boast. Luke 13 “Be converted and repent.”
Romans 7:2. "For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband,"
Hebrews 13:4 "Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge,".
YaHOSHA is our Deliverer and gives the free gift of Salvation. If we walk with Him, YaHOSHA will see that our spirit will be acceptable to YaHVaH and have Eternal life.

CONFESSION OF A FORMER 'SEX OFFENDER'. Immorality Admitted
Deuteronomy 22:22> Exodus 22:16; Leviticus 19:20
"As a young, unconverted man (who wishes to remain unnamed) in 1965 a mature person encouraged me to date a young woman and steal her virginity. Jackie was 18, of "legal age", meaning "open game". She cried! Years later YaHVaH by His Son saved me. I often think of Jackie and worry about her. I pray that one selfish, unthoughtful action did not alter the rest of her life. I took something very precious from Jackie, a young woman who loved her friends dearly, whether they returned the love or not. If I could return ALL the wasted years, take away the hurt, and make her be blessed I would leap for joy. I would make reparations now. I love her." There is no age for open game.
Although there were many conditions at the time a young couple married in some foolish understanding, the fact remains that we ought to heed the Scriptures, take them seriously, and do our very best to love Father YaHVaH.
WHO is a sex-offender? Anyone who has had relations out of marriage, as in pre-marital relations.
The STATE (as in a State in America) considers the "age of accountability" around 16 or 18 years old.
Father YaHVaH says in Deuteronomy 22:22 "If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel."
There is no age limit. We must encourage one another to stay pure. If we compromise and sin, we must repent, confess our sin, strive never to sin again. Our sins are under the Blood of Messiah YaHOSHA, and will not be remembered nor mentioned at the judgment of believers. We have been redeemed. However, without Messiah's offering on the tree at Calvary, there is no redemption, no eternal life: Only judgment.
23 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; 24Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you. [Please continue with your own study and research.]
Exodus 34:5 "And YaHVaH descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the Name of YaHVaH.
6 And YaHVaH passed by before him, and proclaimed, YaHVaH, YaHVaH Elohim merciful and gracious (giving unmerited favor) longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation."
Repent and be baptized in the Name of YaHOSHA. Acts 2
IF we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
The Late Negro Singer, Gene McDaniels 1962 in his song, "Chip Chip" warned that a little leaven leavens the whole lump. Here is a snippet: " Chip Chip, You tell a little lie; Chip, Chip, You make your baby cry. Chip, Chip, You Cheat a little bit; Chip, Chip: you quarrel over it. Oh, Oh, One Day your going to discover; one little wrong, leads to another. Chip, Chip; Chipping away; Chipping at Your Mansion of Love."
Shalom, If you have a question, about divorce and remarriage, ask. I'll try to answer in a short period of time.
Your Servant, TsephanYah Eber

Email: "My pastor took the position that you have portrayed as common in modern day evangelical churches; mainly that the reasons for her divorce allowed remarriage. I have always believed that God hates divorce, but I was always one of those blinded Christians who thought that as long as there was adultery by one party, the marriage could be ended and the parties were free to remarry..."

Review: "Is There Life After Divorce?" This is a refutation of Ronald L. Dart’s article in the February, 1990, issue of The
International News. He is wrong in saying that no marriage is binding for life. New Testament usage of the word for fornication "porneia" does not support divorce and remarriage for adultery. (Usually the (?) Question Mark is an (') apostrophe.

Jesus and Remarriage, by Derek Seaman. The so-called "Pauline Privilege," allowing divorce and remarriage when an unbelieving spouse departs, is not Biblical, and was not taught for several hundred years after Messiah. How did the Worldwide Church of God change its doctrine on marriage in 1974? Does YaHVaH bind all or any marriages? This article rocked the Church of God in the United Kingdom,.
