Physical & Spiritual
by D. J. Love, minister, TSN, SBC
There is a direct parallel between Human (physical) Divorce and Spiritual (The Eternal's) Divorce. The ancient Israelites as a nation were the physical children of YHWH's Spiritually Chosen (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob [Israel]), and as such, The Ancient Nation of Israel [Jacob] were the physical inheritors of the physical aspect of The Promises (Covenant) that Spiritual and physical Abraham made with YHWH. However, unlike physical inheritance The Spiritual aspect of The Promises can only be inherited from (One) Righteous Seed to (Another) Righteous Seed.
Romans 4:13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law (of physical inheritance), but through the righteousness of (Spiritual) faith (which is passed down from faith to faith OR Righteousness to Righteousness).
Isaiah 45:19 I (YHWH) have not spoken in secret, in a dark (hidden) place of the earth: I (YHWH) did not say unto the (physical) seed of Jacob [Israel], Seek ye me in vain (way): I, YHWH, speak of righteousness, I declare things that are righteous.
Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of YHWH revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The justified shall live by faith.
Whereas the physical inheritance is only passed down from Firstborn to Firstborn or surviving eldest OR to one who has obtained "The Physical Birthright." Because of the physical aspect of the promise made to Abraham, YHWH was obligated to offer (the physical seed) Ancient Israel the opportunity to retain or lose the Righteous element of The promise made to Righteous Abraham (Righteous Isaac, and Righteous Jacob), and so the new nation of ancient Israel entered into a Marriage Covenant (Vow of Obedience, Love, FAITHfulness) with YHWH; But YHWH's new Bride (Ancient Israel) broke the vows of her Marriage Covenant with her (Spiritually Righteous) Husband (YHWH). However, Yahweh didn't let her go easily. He brought great blessings upon her, and He adorned her as no other bride (Nation) has ever been adorned, but she (Ancient Israel or physical seed of Abraham) only became vain and Gloried in herself (themselves). Obviously, The Nation Israel, the wife, did not love her husband, Yahweh, and she [Israel] committed Unrighteous Spiritual fornication and Spiritual whoring with Spiritually Unrighteous nations; and served their false unrighteous gods.
See for yourself in the following scriptures:
At that time, says Yahweh, will I be the EL of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people (Assembly).
2 Thus says Yahweh, The people who were left of the sword found favor in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest.
3 Yahweh Appeared of Old to me, saying, YES, I HAVE LOVED YOU WITH AN EVERLASTING LOVE: Therefore With LOVING KINDNESS Have I Drawn You.
4 Again Will I Build (Rebuild, Renew, Restore) You (but this time as a Righteousness Seeking Nation), And You Shall Be (Re)Built, O VIRGIN OF ISRAEL: Once again shall you be ADORNED with your TAMBOURINES, and shall go forth in the dances of those who make merry (but this time as a Righteousness Seeking Nation).
8 Now when I (Yahweh) passed by you (Israel), and looked at you, behold, your time was the time of love; and I (The Eternal G-d) spread my (Spiritual) skirt over you, and covered your nakedness: Yes, I swore to you, and entered into a (Marriage) Covenant with you, says the LORD Yahweh, and You Became Mine (My Wife).
9 Then washed I you with water; Yes, I thoroughly washed away your blood from you, and I anointed you with oil.
10 I clothed you also with embroidered work, and shod you with sealskin, and I girded you about with fine linen, and covered you with silk.
11 I decked you with ornaments, and I put bracelets on your hands, and a chain on your neck.
12 I put a ring on your nose, and ear-rings in your ears, and a beautiful crown on your head.
13 Thus were you decked with gold and silver; and your clothing was of fine linen, and silk, and embroidered work; You ate fine flour (no dirt or grit), and honey, and oil; and you were exceedingly beautiful, and you did prosper to royal estate.
14 Your renown went forth among the nations for your beauty; for it was perfect, through My Majesty (YHWH's reputation, not Israels') which I had put on you, says the LORD Yahweh.
15 But you (My Bride Israel) did trust in your own beauty (or wealth, power, intelligence, SELF, etc. . AND NOT IN THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF YHWH) ...
Why do most people place such great importance on power, and beauty (physical attributes), and ignore the power of righteous love (Spiritual attribute)? Because of physical "Human Nature" (Satan's Nature); when a person (or nation) allows their beauty (SELF-pride) to conquer their Humble Spiritual Righteousness, then that person's or nation's ego (SELF-centeredness) is the true center of that person's or nation's affection, and not their lover or GOD (YHWH)! This behavior will be further demonstrated by those egoists and their inability to be faithful to any Righteous Spiritual Relationship, and they will always be found going from lover (lust) to lover (lust) everytime their ego needs a boost. This is always the case with those who are unable to love or fear love, but need the comfort of love. We call these people (or Nations) "Takers", and they are in contrast to the "True FAITHful Lovers", called "Givers."
Then G-d's Wife (Ancient Israel), because of her great wealth and power (attained from her Husband) did a very Evil thing....... She Stopped Loving, and trusting in her Husband (Yahweh), and became a Harlot. She (The Nation of Israel) began to worship pagan gods and goddesses. She became SELF-centered instead of G-d Centered. She turned her back on her Protector, Benefactor, and Husband. She committed Spiritual Adultery, and she would Not Repent of her lack of Trust, Faith, Respect, Obedience, and Love. . . . for she was obsessed with her own beauty, prosperity, and power. She stopped trusting in G-d, and started trusting in herSELF. Therefore, the Covenant was broken by G-d's wife, Israel, and after a period of time the unrepentant Israel was a Divorced Nation (ex-wife).
Note: Physical Divorce is a Parallel of Spiritual Divorce, and like Spiritual Divorce, is only allowed whenever a spouse becomes unfaithful. The very act of being unfaithful is the same as willingly choosing to depart from your spouse.
It should, also, be noted that G-d can divorce individuals just the same as nations.
Additional Note: Now one might say, "But YHWH's Covenant with Abraham is a perpetual Covenant." To which, I will say, "The Ancients Israelites or Jews didn't break Abraham's Covenant with YHWH; Only Abraham could have done that. No, they broke THEIR Covenant with YHWH; The Covenant that they personally made with YHWH in the desert after leaving Egypt and crossing the Reed Sea (Not Red Sea). This covenant is expounded upon in Exodus 20 through Exodus 23.
Exodus 24:1-7 (TORAH, The Marriage Covenant)
¶ And He said unto Moses, Come up unto the LORD, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship ye afar off.
2 And Moses alone shall come near the LORD: but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.
3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said we will do.
4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.
5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the LORD.
6 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.
7 And he took "The Book of the Covenant" (Torah), and read it to the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient.
Therefore, DIVORCE IS ALLOWED for G-d and for Human Beings on the grounds of un_FAITH_fulness, but like G-d, we should give them a chance to Truly Repent (reject SELF).
31 "It was also said, 'Whoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorce,'
32 but I tell you that whoever who puts away his wife, except for the cause of SEXUAL IMMORALITY, makes her an adulteress; and whoever shall marry her when she is put away commits adultery.
1 Corinthians 7:15
15 Yet if the unbeliever departs, let there be separation. The brother or the sister is not under bondage in such cases, but G-d has called us in peace.
15 But you (ISRAEL) did trust in your beauty, and played the prostitute because of your renown, and poured out your prostitution on everyone who passed by; his it was.
17 You did also take your beautiful jewels of My gold (G-d's gold) and of My silver, which I had given you, and made for you IMAGES of MEN (False Pagan gods), and did play the (Spiritual) prostitute with them (False Pagan gods and their rituals or traditions.);
As we can see, Israel willingly departed from Yahweh of their own free will, and therefore they Divorced G-d (YHWH did not initiate the Divorce with them. They were the ones who broke their Marriage Covenant with YHWH). However, even with all of Israel's Wickedness, YHWH was still willing to take her back if she would just simply repent (reject SELF), but she would Not !
2 Chronicles 7:14, 16-18
14 If My people (Wife), who are Called By My Name (Married Name), shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my (Righteous) face, and turn from their wicked (Unrighteous) ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
16 For now have I chosen and made this house Holy, that my name may be there forever; and my eyes and my heart shall be there perpetually.
17 As for you, if you will walk before me (in Seeking Righteousness) as David your father walked, and do according to all that I have Commanded You, and will Keep My Statutes And Ordinances (Marriage Vows or Covenant);
18 then I will establish the throne of your kingdom, according as My Covenant with David your father, saying, There shall not fail you a man to be ruler in Israel.
Therefore, the Divorce was completed, but before we go any further, let us take a really good look at exactly what G-d's ex-wife did wrong. . . . Of course, we know that She Worshiped Idols, and False gods of various sorts.. . . . . . . But how did they worship them, and what was the traditional practice of this pagan worship?. . . . . . . Were The Ancient Israelites Any Different Than The Traditional Christians of Today? . . . . Actually, No! They worshiped the very same pagan gods and goddesses that Traditional Christians worship all year long; the Saturnalia (christ mass), fertility rites, and worshipped "The Queen of Heaven" or the goddesses Ishtar and Isis, Tammuz (SUNRISE services, cakes, and hot crossed buns), the list is nearly endless, etc. . . .
Do we think that G-d is Stupid?
Do we think that G-d has a poor memory?
Do we think that G-d will not allow us to Divorce Him?
Do we behave just like his first wife?
Below is an example of an Easter "Sunrise Service" being held within G-d's Temple at Jerusalem by G-d's First Wife (The Children Of Israel).
15 Then said he to me, (Ezekiel) Have you seen this, son of man? you shall again see yet greater abominations than these.
16 He brought me into the Inner Court of Yahweh's house (Solomon's Temple To G-d in Jerusalem); and see, at the door of the temple of Yahweh, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men, with their backs toward the temple of Yahweh, and their faces toward the east (where the sun rises); and they were worshiping (Sunrise Worship Service) the Sun toward the east (as it rises).
And who or what is Tammuz?
Ezekiel 8:14 (previous verse to the above verse)
Then he brought me (Ezekiel) to the door of the gate of Yahweh's house (Gate just outside G-d's Temple) which was toward the north; and see, there sat the Women Weeping for Tammuz.
Note: TAMMUZ: Babylonian "DU'UZU" or "DUZU" who was known as the "Son Who Rises" (ascends) ! The "SON WHO RISES"! . . . Sounds just like Jesus Christ, but JESUS Hasn't been born yet; as a matter of fact, Jesus as a real person never actually existed, but was the Greek name given to pagan sun gods. The Anti-Hebraic Greek gentiles of the pagan Universal Roman (christopagan) church stole the True Hebrew Messiah's identity and promoted the false savior, Jesus, as the SUN or son of G-d that ASCENDS (Rises).

"The reasons for celebrating our major (pagan catholic) feasts when we do are many and varied. In general, however, it is true that many of them have "At least" an indirect connection with the pagan christian (christopagan) catholic feasts celebrated about the same time of year - (which are) feasts centering around the Harvest, the Rebirth of the Sun at the Winter Solstice (now December 21st, but was December 25th) , Saturnalia (Xmas), on the old Roman Julian Calendar, the Renewal of Nature in Spring (Easter or Ishtar), and so on.
See "Pagan Holi-days."
Let us now apply what we have learned to the more common phrase "Once Saved Always Saved". As you have learned, there is No difference between being Truly Saved, and being G-d's Bride. But in the Light of our knowledge of Divorce, we can clearly see that G-d (Being Divorced), because His First Bride (Israel) had Spiritual Sex with False (Pagan) gods and goddesses (producing pagan children), is Obviously not Going to be joined together in Holy Matrimony with anyone who is Spiritually Unrighteous due to practicing Unrighteous Pagan Traditions; . . . So let us apply this knowledge to the phrase "Once Saved Always Saved". . . Since being "Saved" has the equal result of becoming The Bride Of Messiah (YHWH's Proxy) . . . We can simply substitute the word "Married" for its' parallel word "Saved". . . Thus, our new phrase is "Once Married Always Married" OR "Once Engaged Always Engaged" reveals that the "Once Saved Always Saved" Doctrine is an Obvious Deception, because G-d Allows Divorce for un_FAITH_fulness !
So what about Salvation through Messiah Yahshua, Grace, and Forgiveness Of Sin? ... These things are the Fruits of G-d's Love For Us, but G-d, also, offered the same to His first wife (Israel).
The Real Question Here is This: What About Your Love For Your Creator and symbolic (proxy) Husband To Be "Yahshua"? . . . Do You Truly Love Your Betrothed or are you un_FAITH_ful ?
Have You Added To The Commandments Of The Eternal G-d With X-mas, Easter (Ishtar), Halloween, Valentines, Lent, holy water, rosary, cross, etc... ?
Have You Taken Away From The Commandment Of The Eternal G-d With Sunday Worship Services Without Keeping The Seventh Day Sabbath Holy? Have you or your church eliminated YHWH's Annual Feast Days and Holy Days in favors of man's holidays.
Note: Even IF Messiah Yahshua rose from among the dead on a Sunday, Which He Did Not, but even IF He did.... That Does Not Mean That YHWH suddenly stopped revering The Seventh Day Sabbath in favor of pagan Sunday. To assume so is a trait of Human Nature (Satan's Nature), and Not a part of YHWH's Marriage Covenant with The Spiritual Righteousness Seeking Seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob [ISRAEL]; The Righteous Children and Virtuous Bride of YHWH.
