BEWARE Ungodly Counsel
by David J. Stewart
"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly..." —Psalm 1:1
I felt the urgency to write this article because of the skyrocketing divorce rate, which has reached over 75% in California alone. The federal government stopped recording marriage statistics in the year 2000 because it was a tell-tale revelation of the moral destruction of our nation. Divorce is a horrible sin that perpetuates for a lifetime. The root cause of divorce and all sin is pride. The middle letter of the words pride and sin is the letter “i.” People are stinking proud these days, lacking sincere humility that only comes from being close to God. The Lord is meek and lowly (Matthew 11:29).
It's very important for every person, especially you ladies, to understand that the entire American society is against the Bible. UNGODLY COUNSEL is everywhere around us in society! From television, to psychiatrists, to doctors, to colleges, to the police, to the court system, to even many fake churches... America today has serious problems with the Word of God. Psalms 1:1 teaches that God blesses us for choosing His counsel instead of listening to idiots who don't believe the Bible. Ungodly counsel is any advice that is contrary to the Bible. American society is plagued with bad, ungodly, advice. You ladies are idiots if you seek advice on your marriage from pant-wearing hussies who don't live by the Bible. Of course they're NOT going to give you Godly advice. Godly advice comes from godly people, Christians who love the Bible.
The apostle Paul said that he travailed in prayer for Christ to be “FORMED IN YOU.” Galatians 4:19, “My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you.” I feel the same way toward all my web visitors. I want and pray for you to be saved and be conformed into Christ's image. It's not how much faith you have that matters, but how much you apply your faith.
Please understand that there's OFTEN a drastic difference between GOOD counsel verses GODLY counsel. A well-meaning person may see some verbal abuse in your marriage and recommend a divorce. That would seem like good advice to many people. However, that is UNGODLY advice. The Word of God teaches faithfulness, forgiveness and unconditional love. Divorce is rooted in self-righteousness, a refusal to forgive and hatred. Lawyers know that divorce court is more filled with hatred than a murder trial. It's our stinking pride as Americans. Television is saturated with humanistic garbage - wicked philosophies that cater to the selfish pride of Americans. McDonalds says, “You deserve a break today!” The Bible says that you deserve to burn in Hell forever. Burger King says, “Have it your way!” The Bible says to obey God's way. Do you see how synthetic, immoral and ungodly our society has become? I would have loved to live in America back when all the stores lowered their shades on Sunday to prevent window shopping. In the old days it was normal for most people to attend church. Television, DVD players and electronics have spoiled and ruined our country.
All Of Satan's Apples Have Worms
Divorce is UNGODLY counsel. It is a sin for any woman to tell her husband that she doesn't love him anymore (or vice versa). Ungodly fools use love as a criteria for divorce. They reason that it's ok to divorce your spouse if you don't love them anymore. That is bad advice from the Devil. Satan was the first psychologist in the Garden Of Eden. The serpent gave Eve some ungodly counseling. Today we have serpents like “Dear Annie,” “The View” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to give ungodly counseling. Most people are walking in the way of ungodly counseling. God is not blessing them. In fact, they are cursed, abiding under God's wrath.
The main reason for divorce these days is because of feminist indoctrination that teaches women to become intolerant of less than perfect husbands. The God-ordained masculine authority of husbands and fathers is continually demonized by feminists as a form of abuse. Whereas God said that a man has the right and duty to RULE over his wife (Genesis 3:16), the wicked court system in America oppresses Christian men who try to rule their families. Whoremongering men, homosexuals and pedophile Hollywood producers are praised, honored and celebrated by a decadent and Godless American public; while preachers are attacked, maligned and torn down all over the internet, newsmedia and television by God-haters. The wicked world has nothing but compassionate sympathy for heathen celebrities, and nothing but hateful contempt for Bible-believing Christians. Jesus told us in John 15:19 that the world hates Christians because it hates Christ.
Liberal, leftwing, Godless, wicked people are exploiting the Bible to fit THEIR agendas. Abortionists, homosexuals and drunkards twist the Scriptures around in an evil attempt to pervert what the Bible really teaches. Drunkards lie and say that Jesus changed water into intoxicating booze. Homosexuals lie and say that same-sex marriage is a form of love and since God is love they are not doing anything wrong or sinful. Abortionists lie and say that a fetus is not a human being yet. Human nature is inherently evil. People ALWAYS try to justify their decisions to sin by perverting the truth. A wife who files for divorce lies to her children about the father, trying to make it look like it's all his fault. God sees the truth and will judge accordingly (Proverbs 24:12; Hebrews 4:13).
It is tragic that so many divorces are caused by ungodly counseling which a wife receives when she is at odds with her husband. Oftentimes this ungodly advice comes from other feminist women at shelters, from layers, from friends, from mothers, or even from carnal people at church. The marriage is under attack nowadays more than ever. If a wife is not totally committed to her husband and to being loyal to her marriage VOWS (promises), then she is likely to destroy her own marriage by filing for divorce, involving a lawyer, or hurting her husband (Proverb 14:1, "Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands"). Oh how America is plagued with foolish women who divorce their husbands and destroy their homes.
The Devil has Americans feeding 100% real meat to their dogs, while we feed our children chicken nuggets with 50% meat and the rest fillers and chemicals. Pepsi beverage company is putting aborted fetus cells in their flavorings. Kraft is also going to start using the fetus flavor enhancers. It's inhumane and insane! Satan inspired people to do crazy things. The show Fear Factor is demonic. It's disgusting the things that they do. God never intended for people to eat scorpions, pig testicles and donkey rectums. Yummy!
A Proper Attitude Toward Defiant Sinners
The Bible teaches in Psalms chapter 15 how not to change. One of the principles is to look down upon wickedness and honor those who fear God. Psalms 15:4, “In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.” Americans have been influenced by agendacized television to accept evil and embrace wickedness. Same-sex marriage, abortion, torture of alleged terrorists, dismantling the U.S. Constitution, banning gun ownership, allowing illegal immigration, and a bunch of other immoral evils are being promoted by television as good things.
That word “contemned” in Psalms 15:4 means “to look down upon.” We're not supposed to CONDEMN people, but we are supposed to CONTEMN their sins (notice the similar, but different, spelling of the two words). A proper Christian attitude toward sinners is to love them as people, but look with disgust and disdain upon their sins. We are not to accept their sins and associate closely with them, lest we become tempted and go into sin ourselves. One mono plus one healthy person equals two sick people. The false teaching that we'll never reach people for Christ unless we compromise and tolerate their lifestyle is ungodly advice. The Bible teaches to contemn the wicked. I am disgusted with homosexuals. I love them as people and am nice to them when I meet them, but I don't hesitate to openly express my disdain for the lifestyle if asked. We ought never hate anyone, but we also shouldn't go along just to get along. Jesus ate with sinners, but He didn't go with them while they were rioting and committing more sins.
Homosexuals quickly feel-the-waters when meeting new people, to see where we strangers stand. I met a nice man on the bus in West Hollywood (while getting surgery in 2009. His name was Mario and I liked him as a person. He said that he lived in San Francisco for 12 years and had no problem with homosexuality. I immediately knew that he was testing me, to see if I was queer or where I stood. I replied, “Well I do!” I do have a problem with homosexuality. A black woman gave me a hateful glare. I had spoken my conservative mind without apology. We continued to talk and I was kind to him and he to me. Eventually I got off the bus and we waved to each other. I never saw him again. Lesbians and homosexuals are some of the nicest people I've met as well, depending who you meet, just like anybody else. Everybody is different!
Don't Throw Away Your Marriage In A Moment Of Anger
Articles like this guarantee that I'll receive e-mails from angry feminist women, but the truth needs to be said. Women need to learn to DO NOTHING when they're angry at their husbands. When your decision maker is broken... don't make decisions! The judges, lawyers, and other so-called "professional" people involved in your divorce don't care if you throw your marriage away, they just want the money. It's everyday business as usual to them. Many of them are divorced themselves and out of spite want all the company they can get, so they readily advice others to divorce, divorce, divorce. Well, divorce is a horrible wicked sin!
Marriage is NOT an agreement, it is a commitment. When you were married, you made promises to God and to your spouse (for better, for worse; in sickness, and in health; for richer, for poorer; 'til death do us part... and for you wives, "to obey"). Increasingly, people don't even think twice about breaking their marriage vows (what's one more sin, right?). American society has been desensitized concerning the sinfulness of sin. Whereas homosexuality used to be a sin, now it's called an "alternate lifestyle." Whereas drunkenness used to be called a sin, now it's mislabeled as “Chemical dependency.” Abortion is now called “a choice.” No, it's a child, not a choice!!! The child has no choice. Bless God, sin is still sin! Alcoholism is a sin! Homosexuality is a sin! Abortion is a sin! Casino gambling is a sin! Hollywood movies are a sin (promoting sexual immorality, blasphemy against God and violence)! Divorce is a wicked, dirty, rotten sin!!!
God hates divorce. Hebrews 13:5 teaches that God NEVER forsakes or leaves His own. How sad that so many professed "Christians" willingly forsake their own spouse during the "for worse" times of the marriage. It's wrong! It's wicked! I don't care what your husband or wife does, you have NO RIGHT to break your wedding vows. Do you know what the hallmark character trait of a great Christian is? They stay! They don't quit! They never forsake their God, their wife, their friends, et cetera. We are living in a spoiled generation of adult brats who complain and gossip about everything.
Whaaah!... like a big baby... he got a banana, but I only got an orange. Whaaah!... I didn't like the way she looked at me. I'm not kidding, the American people are borderline clinically paranoid these days. Everyone has lawyers and lawsuits on their mind. Everyone has been brainwashed by the government and newsmedia to fear walking down the street. Everyone is stressed out about so many things. What ever happened to the simple good old days. Think about it... 100 years ago people had time to enjoy life, before the modern age of mass communication and travel. Nowadays, with all of the modern-day conveniences, no one has time to do anything anymore. How ironic!
Your Marriage Verses The Evil New World World
In these last days, a husband and wife need to be STRONG in the Lord and in their knowledge of God's Word. Satan wants to destroy your marriage, so he can ruin your home and another family is destroyed. In fact, it's an agenda of the New World Order. Gregory Brock Chisholm, the first head of the World Health Organization taught back in 1954 that world government could only happen if children's values were changed to hate their parents, despise country, lose their individualism and abandon all Biblical faith in God. The occult-driven, Masonic, Zionist, Marxist, Communist, globalists have succeeded by banning the Bible from our nation's classrooms since 1963. Television has indoctrinated America's youth in lessons of gross immorality, heathendom and apostasy. Television is the enemy of all unrighteousness (MP3 sermon clip by Evangelist Lester Roloff).
Young people today just don't know how beautiful the old time religion was, living by faith and enjoying the presence of God's Spirit and the blessing of the truth of God's Word. If the truths of the Bible don't burn your heart with great joy, you need to get right with God. The old-time religion is dead! Same-sex marriage could never become the law of the land if the old-time religion were still alive.
Especially you wives who like to run to shelters when you get angry at your husband. You are often walking in the counsel of the ungodly in such places. You are amongst other wives who are angry at their husbands and are "experts" on how to hurt your husband and "fix him good." These parasitic homewreckers viciously prey upon tired and mentally weak wives who just need a break from life. A marriage these days has MUCH pressure. With manufacturing jobs fleeing the country, wages decreasing, bills increasing, insurance coverage decreasing, premiums increasing, the workplace becoming increasingly hostile (especially towards Christians), little whores everywhere (dressing like they're too poor to afford clothes) and so much more... it can create a lot of tension in a marriage.
If you are reading this article, then I plead with you to renew your marriage vows with God and your spouse. Simply tell your spouse, "I love you and just want you to know that I'm with you for the rest of your life." Don't say it if you don't mean it! Don't you dare say these words and then run out the door next week. By the way, I think it is pathetic that a wife can run out the door every time the going gets tough, but a husband has nowhere to run from his job, pressures, frustrations, or a troublesome wife who won't fulfill her marriage duties. It's just not fair. Shame on the wife who keeps running back to mama. Meddling in-laws are one of the main causes of divorce. When your child gets married, their spouse ought to be adopted by you as your child too. God sees them as ONE in a marriage union, and so should you. They are a team. When they fight, don't you take sides. It's not your business. Meddling in-laws often cause divorce, hatred and lifetime sorrow.
Satan Always Volunteers To Destroy, Never To Build
The feminists demand equal rights, but only when it's convenient for them. Where are the men's shelters? Where can a man run to get away from all the pressures of life? Suicide? A man has no place to run, but there are shelters all across America where women can run to (and they do). It is an obvious testimony as to the foolishness and hypocrisy of feminism. The fact is that women need shelters because they are the weaker sex (1st Peter 3:7). Men are under attack. As Al Pacino says in the film The God Father, “Women and child can make bad decision, but not men.” Men are under attack, because the evil monsters behind the subversion of our nation (Satan's servants) fully realize that the family is the basic unit of any civilization. If the Devil can destroy Christian homes, then Satan has control over society. Satan's greatest enemy is a strong, happy, Christian family who have faith in God.
Furthermore, there are Public Defender offices all across America that will help a women get a divorce for free, but the man has to pay $15,000 for a lawyer to defend himself. Don't you understand?... the whole American system is setup to destroy your marriage and your family. Satan loves divorce. The best way to destroy a home is to attack the weakest area... the wife. If Satan can destroy the mother, then it's easy to ruin the husband. You women are being targeted by Satan in an attempt to destroy your husbands. Divorce is a primary cause of adulterous relationships and apostasy. I recently received an e-mail from a women who's first husband divorced her and then married another.
She was devastated so she married a man who had been divorced twice already seeking companionship. She said he was abusive so she divorced her second husband. Then she writes me asking if it's ok to remarry. I told her she sinned by leaving her second husband and needs to go back to him. If he's abusive, then he needs help. She surely does not have to live with an abusive husband, but she is commanded by God not to divorce him. There is NOT one Scripture in the entire Bible that gives a wife permission to divorce an abusive husband. And I'll say something else here, a lot of woman greatly exaggerate the term "abuse." Like I said, we are living in a spoiled rotten generation of little adult brats who complain about everything. Just because your husband cancels your credit card is NOT abuse.
Are You Walking In The Counsel Of The Ungodly?
Are you running to these shelters in an emotional panic, looking for sympathy? What about your husband? Do you clean the house? Do you love him? Do you tell him you love him? I worked with a man who said his wife NEVER says "I love you." That is not good. If a husband and wife are not best of friends after 10 years of marriage... then something is very wrong. This does not mean that there won't be fights and problems, it just means that you should both be closer to each other than anyone else. Nothing is worse than a wife being closer to her mother, pastor, or a friend more than her own husband. It is disloyalty as far as I'm concerned. A wife should have eyes for her husband only in every way. By the way ladies, NEVER allow any man other than your husband to place his hand on your shoulder (or anywhere). It is wrong. Protect what belongs to your husband. And you husbands do the same.
I didn't write this article to be unkind, and I'm certainly not a male chauvinist. I have simply noticed over the years that many wives run to shelters and are subject to godless wicked advice from total losers that are destroying their own marriages. Wake up! If you really want to get mad ladies, then know this... your own government deliberately created the feminist movement to destabilize society and convince you to murder your own baby through an abortion.
Chinese women weren't as gullible, so their government forced them to stop having children by sterilization and mandatory killings. In contrast, the American women were enraged when they were told that their body didn't belong to them, so they demanded the RIGHT to be able to get an abortion (and they got it in 1972). So while American women continue to eagerly murder their children in the name of "women's rights," Chinese women are prohibited from having more than two children or else face deadly consequences. Either way, the population is reduced.
By the way, population reduction is also a sin. There is plenty of land and food in this world. God never taught us to stop having children. Do the math and you'll find that every human being on the planet could fit into the state of Texas. The problem is evil government and the greed of mankind.
So ladies, be careful... that's all I'm saying. Don't sacrifice your future on the alter of the immediate. Think! If your husband has physically beat you, then you both need counseling and help. Most husbands get angry for a reason. I'm not condoning domestic violence at all, I'm just saying that wives are often to blame for their husbands anger in the first place. You BOTH need counseling, a referee. If a wife won't cook, clean, or do her duties... what can the husband do? Where can he turn? He can't. He can't write his wife up or suspend her. He can't fire her for poor job performance. So what does a husband do? A loving husband will try to help her.
There Are No Perfect Marriages
A loving husband will try to find a way to make things better. But your husband is a human being too and he will get angry sometimes (most husbands do). Then when his wife runs out the door, the husband is looked down upon by others as the bad guy... an abusive husband. Women who run to shelters are automatically treated as "victims," but what about the husband at home who patiently asks his wife month after month to clean her house and cook him some nutritious meals (but she doesn't). She doesn't work a job outside the home, and doesn't do her work inside the home.
This is very wrong and an injustice towards her family. All across America, hardworking men are often the silent victims of wives who won't be a mother to their children or a wife to their husband. Please don't misunderstand me, domestic violence is evil and wicked in every form; but it's high time for wives to start being honest with themselves and accepting their share of blame for their husband's anger. What makes your husband mad? What have you done to reconcile the matter? You have no right to demonize your husband if you're not fulfilling your responsibilities as a loyal and hard-working wife. A lot of women make their husbands angry by spending too much time on the phone. Ladies, stay off the phone! You probably gossip too much already.
If you're angry with your husband, that is ok; but not a divorce. You don't need a lawyer. As my pastor used to say, "If either one of you were a good Christian, then this wouldn't be happening." It takes two to tango. Let it go. Let it go. Let it go. Love your spouse, forgive. Do you know that Jesus told Peter that he is supposed to forgive his brother seven times seventy. That's 490 times a day! In other words, unlimited forgiveness. If you're afraid to go home, ok... but no divorce! Give it time, ask your husband to meet you at a private counseling session with your pastor or someone you can trust (someone older who's had a successful marriage over the years).
Respect your husband's desire for privacy. Few husbands want to go for counseling. Make it easier for him. Look ladies, arguments are a part of being married. Hopefully, you can both learn to COMMUNICATE more to avoid arguments. The biggest problem in many marriages is a lack of communication. Feelings are like a boiling steam kettle, if you don't let the steam out... it will come out one way or another. Why wait until your pot boils over? Talk to your husband now, give him a heads up. Give him a chance to make things right before you call out the National Guard. I believe it is sinful for a wife to hide things from her husband, things that he would want to know about.
It undermines a marriage relationship when a couple hides things from each other. How sad that so many spouses have lost their trust for each other. Some wives even have a secret bank account at the advice of their meddling mother or a feminist friend who keep advising her what to do when the marriage fails (and it probably will). Too many men and women have a "one foot already out the door attitude." We should never plan for failure when it comes to our marriage commitment.
Avoid The Counsel Of The Ungodly
The bottom line is that we are commanded in the Bible not to walk in the counsel of the ungodly (Psalm 1:1). Divorce is ungodly advice. I once heard a pastor say that he has never recommended for anyone to get a divorce, but he clapped when some people did. That was wrong for him to say that. I would never rejoice over ANY divorce. Sadly, marriage has become more of an economic vehicle these days for people to ride upon (two jobs = more money). Many women who are seeking a husband want to know how much money he has in the bank, where he works, and what he has to offer her. No wonder so many marriages are failing. What ever happened to genuine love?
I once knew a young Christian women who wanted to marry into money. She had developed a bitter attitude towards authority. She was sincere, but a lot of people hurt her emotionally. Some women were jealous and cruel in their words toward her. She didn't know how to deal with it all. She became bitter. She got away from the Church and started hanging out with losers, working in a fancy sports nightclub. She decided to have sexual relations with a professional hockey player she had met. He was already married. The foolish woman sincerely thought the man would run off with her and leave his wife. Foolish young girl... he had his pleasure defiling her and then moved on. That young woman had a nervous breakdown which lasted for years. She had given her virginity to a pig. How tragic! How wicked! Oh how America needs men of God to preach the Word of God once again from it's pulpits, on the streets, on the internet, in newspapers, everywhere a voice can be heard for God. Where are the men of God? By the way, professional athletes are nearly synonymous with sexual immorality in America.
God will forgive anybody and what's in the past can't hurt you forever, but its reproach may carry with you until death. The hardest person to always forgive is ourselves. That's the hard part. But if God is willing to forgive us, then we should also forgive our self. Cruel people, self-righteous hypocrisies, will remind you of your faults, mistakes and sins until the day you die. They do this because they are jerks, filled with hatred, jealousy and self-righteousness. God knows how to deal with such types of people.
You Will Often Fall, But You Don't Have To Quit!
Proverb 24:16 declares, "For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief." The Apostle Paul affirmed to us that a marriage will have troubles (1st Corinthians 7:28). The key is to get back up when the dust settles and the smoke clears and NEVER QUIT. The word "fall" in Proverb 24:16 is mentioned twice. The first time it means to trip, to stumble, to mess up. The second time it means to deliberately quit. A Christian WILL mess up, sin, and make a mess of things at times in their life... but they always get back up and move on for the Lord. In contrast, the Bible teaches that the wicked purposely quit, they don't even try to do the right thing, they don't care, they give up and go into permanent sin.
But you say, my husband commit adultery, doesn't that mean I can divorce him? Is he sorry? Did he ask for your forgiveness? Jesus said in Matthew 18:22 to forgive not 7 times, but 70 times 7. Some idiot said that means 77. No, the Bible says “times,” 70 times 7 (that's 490). In other words, unlimited forgiveness! There is NO bigger lie today than that divorce is permissible in cases of adultery. Don't you tell me that Jesus permits you to walk our on a crying and repentant spouse who is sorry and begging your forgiveness. Don't you dare! There are NO Biblical grounds for divorce. Matthew 18:22 teaches unlimited forgiveness!!! Divorce is unforgiving hatred.
A Christian will have problems in their marriage, but they won't divorce. The wicked don't care, they throw in the towel and quit. To file for divorce is to commit a great wickedness in the sight of God. Come hell, wind, or high water...you hang in there! Perhaps none of this makes any sense to you, but this is God's way... to honor your marriage vows... “'Til death do us part.” You made a promise to God and your spouse. It doesn't matter if you were married in city hall or a church, God still expects you to keep your promises. People are becoming so wicked that they're now getting married without exchanging traditional vows. “Til death do us part” is intentionally left out, so they can divorce later in dignity. Truthfully, that is wickedness and not possible. Divorce is never dignified. The Bible teaches that God joins a man and a woman together in holy matrimony for life (Matthew 19:6). Adultery and whoremongering is sin (Hebrews 13:4). Remarriage is the sin of adultery (Matthew 5:32).
Did you know that God created Eve from one of Adam's ribs? It's true (Genesis 2:21-22). A rib is the nearest thing to a man's heart, but do know what is the purpose of the ribs? They protect a man's heart. The ribs protect the heart, and that's every wife's purpose, that is, to protect her husband's heart. Talk to your husband if you're upset with him. Don't put a knife in his back by filing for divorce. Lawyers always say to "strike first." There's nothing as traumatizing as the horror of being served a divorce summons to appear in court by some U.S. marshals. Any woman who would do that to her husband ought to spend 15 years in prison! Lawyers are scum and will hurt anyone for money. Most judges are evil, working for an evil system, controlled by evil powers, a part of the spiritual wickedness in high places. The entire court system REJECTS God's Word. That's why abortion and same-sex marriage is now shamefully legal. God's laws supercede man's laws.
If your husband won't listen, then have your pastor (or another understanding man) call him. Men can be stubborn. If he's a bully, then you may need to leave him for awhile, but call him a couple times a week and reassure your love for him. If you do go to a shelter, tell the other women to shut up. I know marriage problems can be very emotional and difficult, but divorce is never the right thing to do. That is all I am saying... don't do it. If you divorce your husband, God says in Matthew 7:1-3 that one day in eternity you will be judged by the SAME harsh standards of hypocrisy and cruelty by which you have condemned your spouse.
Godly counsel says to keep faithful, hang in there, forgive and let go, protect your spouse, love your spouse, and don't go to the Devil for help. I've written this article for one reason, to try to save some marriages. You ladies listen... don't divorce your man. You hang in there! You get tough! You sit him down and straighten him out in love. There is nothing wrong with a wife being assertive and giving her husband a firm talking to. The Bible doesn't teach that wives are slaves to their husbands. Ephesians 5:21-22. Husbands and wives ought to help each other ought, making a life for each other day-by-day. That's what a marriage is, that is, two people making a life for each other in the Lord. Amen!
'SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES' Ladies As John 5:39 Teaches
I challenge you, whoever you may be do “SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES” as Jesus commanded in John 5:39 and let the Lord guide your mind and heart to make decisions. Jesus said to search the Scriptures with the goal of learning about Him. The Lord said in John 5:39 that the Scriptures TESTIFY concerning Him. The Godless world aren't going to testify about Jesus! The multi-millionaire Playboys in Hollywood, politics and sports today aren't going to testify about Jesus! The lesbian and homosexual community aren't going to testify concerning the precious Savior! Bless God, I'm going to testify about Jesus, but from the Scriptures where we are taught about the Lord. John 5:39, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”
Sometimes it may take months or even years before God will reveal His intentions, but you just pray continually and then do the best you can. Make sure that you always pray humbly (James 4:6), not demanding or arrogant; but rather, thanking God for all your blessings (Philippians 4:6-7). Hebrews 4:15-16 teaches that it is only by the precious blood of Jesus that we as God's born-again Children have a right to the throne of grace.
If you have prayed and asked the Lord for His guidance and help, then trust and obey no matter what happens. You may pray for freedom and end up in jail. You may pray for a new home and your car blows up. You may pray for your family and one of them gets hit and killed by a reckless drunk driver. God works in mysterious ways. Jesus chose one of the 12 apostles, a known thief had had a devil in him (John 6:70). Why did the Lord pick Judas instead of a bunch of other well-qualified men for the position? Do you see my point here? Trust God, because you're going to see some really weird, messed up and strange things in your Christian life.
Things things will shake your faith if you allow them to, but it's much better to trust upon the Lord's wisdom and rest in peace just knowing that God is still on His throne. When afflicted, run to the Scriptures for comfort. Read the Bible until you find a truth to burn your heart. Perhaps a promise of the Lord's soon return (1st Thessalonians 4:17), or maybe a promise of the new glorified body in Jesus at the Rapture (Philippians 3:21), or perhaps a promise that God will never leave nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). There are 7,000 promises contained throughout the Bible from God. The power of God rests in the PROMISES of God. If we meet the condition, then God is obligated to keep His promise.
Most promises are already made and are unconditional. They will just happen and there's absolutely nothing that anyone needs to do. For example: The rainbow is a token from God that promises the Lord will never destroy the world again by a catastrophic flood. This is an unconditional promise because there are NO conditions which must be met. A conditional promise is salvation. The Lord offers eternal life and complete forgiveness of sins, but only on the basis that we come as guilty sinners and receive Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living God, Who died, was buried and raised up by a miracle on the third day. Many people refuse to receive Christ's claims of deity and virgin birth. They are not saved. Others believe that a man name Jesus died and that was the end of it. They don't believe that Jesus rose up from the DEAD.
What do you believe friend: FACT or FICTION? If you believe that the gospel is a fact, then you are saved and born again by the Spirit of God; but if you say fiction, then you are believing a lie and will die in your sins within the next century and perish in the Lake of Fire with fools like Rod Serling. The Devil is hoping that you'll listen to ANYONE who doesn't believe the Bible. Your best friend in this world is someone who counsels you with the holy Bible. Granted, there are some nuts who ignorantly twist and pervert the Bible, doing more damage than good. Pray and ask God to show you. YOU read the Bible and ask God to guide you. This is why we shouldn't wait until problems comes, and difficulties arise and then try to learn the Bible.
We ought to read and study the Bible during the fair whether, so that when the storm clouds come, we already know what needs to be done in the matter. You ladies and husbands need to decide that you'd rather die first than ever have a divorce. Separate if you must. Live apart and work separate jobs. Do what it takes. Some sorry, lazy, wife will often sign the divorce papers so the lawyers can go after her husband's finances and force him to support her. That's wrong. I believe in a man supporting HIS biological children, but not a rebellious wife. Back in the 1970s women rarely left home and filed for divorce because the Communist social programs weren't available for domestic abuse claims yet. Women stayed because they had no where to go. Today things are very different. Women DO have a place to go. It's called "Section 8 housing," welfare and Foodstamps. A husband need only call his wife a name while she's pushing his buttons (deliberately trying to make him angry) and then his bratty wife qualifies as "a victim." Many women act completely childish during a divorce, acting like brat teenagers who have no common or ethical sense whatsoever.
It Is Good To Find A Godly Mentor For Counsel
No wonder God hates the sin of divorce (Jeremiah 3:20). I have written a small book here about ungodly counsel, because it abounds everywhere in society. You can't even open the monthly electric or gas power bill without it reading, “Immediately Report All Domestic Abuse at 1-888-BAD-WIFE.” How about first getting on your knees and reporting your spouse to God, seeking God's will in the matter. Once you involve the police there are records. You may be issued a court date, receive sentencing, pay tens-of-thousands of dollars in legal fees, be forced to attend heathen counseling, years of probation, CPS will visit and likely take your children, et cetera. Dialing 911 can ruin someone's life, so be careful before being button happy with your cellphone.
What every young couple needs is some older Christians mentor to go to when problems arise. God is there, but everyone needs flesh! That is, we all need a human being to talk to when we have problems. It's very difficult to go through life without someone to talk to about things that happen. It's extremely traumatizing, lonely and painful. The police don't care and they're not their to be nice to anyone. So I recommend that each young married person pick a mentor of the same sex as a counsellor. For example: a young man might know an older Christian gentlemen at work who loves the Lord and has children and a marriage of his own. He's been where you haven't in life yet, So he would likely be able to provide you with some godly counsel. If not him, then definitely your pastor or an older man in the church where you attend. A neighbor sometimes can be very helpful. Get to know people and learn who you can trust and rely upon from sound advice. God works through Christian people, since that is where the Holy Spirit lives here on earth (1st Corinthians 3:17-18; Romans 8:9).
No wife should ever seek advice from another man as a mentor. Such indiscretions often lead to adultery. A young wife should be careful to seek out the advice of a woman who has been successfully married for 30 years and her husband is happy and her children call her blessed. Don't counsel with someone who's your age, because they've never accomplished anything and will probably tell you to divorce. Godly Christians offer to help patch up marriages, provide a place to stay temporarily, and some food. They don't force a wife to sign the divorce papers in order to get off the streets and receive public aid for free at the taxpayer's expense. Feminist rebels can only escape their marriage commitment, duties and vows because of the wicked court and welfare system that caters to lazy, lying, loafing, rebellious, bad attitude, hussy wives... which equates to much more reckless government borrowing and spending, which means trillions more dollars in profits for the Wall Street criminal banking cartel.
I could go on-and-on. There is a Communist agenda, pushed by feminism, to undermine Western civilization. All of the evils that we are witnessing in American society today were in the planning a century ago and beyond. The Beatles didn't just get bored and move to America. They were brought here and promoted, changing the values of a nation from good to bad, and then from bad to worse. Today everything is at the worst. Gene Simmons of KISS is puking blood in concert as part of his show's antics. Motley Crew has a nearly naked woman who cuts a metal plate over her private part with a chain saw, as sparks fly into the crowd. It's insane!
Marilyn Manson pierces himself in concert and blood runs down from his chest nipples. The audience does the same and blood is all over the place. This is what the Communists want, a total breakdown in morality, civility, ethics and our youth's code of conduct. Manson has sold 15,000,000 albums in the United States! ACDC has sold $42,000,000 albums of Just their “Back In Black” album in America. Over one billion accumulative albums have been purchased by Americans, albums containing the most heathen, hellish, ungodly and sexually immoral music imaginable.

How Not To Change Or Lose Your Faith For God...
"LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour. In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved." -Psalm 15:1-5
