What’s wrong with this picture?

To begin with, can we agree that doing God’s will is our primary function as Christian believers? Furthermore, is it not evident, from scripture, that our Lord is sovereign? Moreover, having been redeemed through his shed blood, are we not bondservants of our Lord Jesus Christ? Therefore, given these axioms, as believers, are we not called to do whatever God wills, however He wills to do it, with whomever He wills us to do it?

Here is a further truth,

“Your particular doctrine is not scripture”

While precepts and systematic teaching may be derived from scriptures, it is a fallacy to then claim that such doctrine “is” scripture. The reason for this distinction is that our doctrine only approximates our understanding of God’s word at the time we create it. This understanding of our Father’s scripture is not perfect, because we are not perfect.

The logic of Spiritual Connections (or unions) is predicated on the assumption that those who are thus united are yielding to the Holy Spirit. If this is true, then whatever form this union takes, be it a marriage certificate or a simple living together arrangement, is of God and thus blessed of Him. It is not a piece of contractual paper or a church blessing that consecrates the union between a man and woman, but whether or not it is ordained by God Himself. The corollary of this concept is that, whether you possess a marriage certificate or not, if your union with another is not the will of our Father, it is not a valid marriage in His eyes. If it the sin of adultery can be committed by simply looking on a woman to lust after her, cannot the sin of adultery be committed by having sex with a woman contrary to the will of God, married or not?

Let’s all resist pride

The church and it’s leadership is, by and large, full of itself. They all believe their particular way of looking at scripture constitutes scripture itself. Therefore, if what you believe is tantamount to God, then anyone who does differently than that is sinning against the Almighty. Naturally, you feel justified defending God and so it is proper, in your eyes, to judge the whole world for not conforming to doctrine as you see it.

What God is about to do, by Divine Right, is reform His body of believers into His image and His likeness. Thus, like Jesus cleansing the temple, what is not of Him must leave so that Godly order can be re-established. One of the most fundamental areas of misalignment within the church is the personal relationships among those of His body. In order for His nature to manifest, that which impedes it must be reformed or done away with. This is what happened to 157 leader of Israel in Ezra chapters 9 and 10. This is what is about to happen within spiritual Israel, too.

However a union looks to the natural man and for whatever reason God chooses to unite two people, it is His business. We must not touch that which our Father calls holy. It is a sign of great maturity to be able to “not” understand what our Lord is doing, but stand back and refuse to criticize it. Gamaliel was right to refuse to judge the new thing YHWH was doing, and time did tell.

The logic of spiritual connections is that:

  1. Is God doing it?
  2. If God is doing it, then it is holy.
  3. If it is holy, we should not put our hand to it.

What is about to happen is beyond where almost anyone currently is in their understanding of our God – including me. WE WILL NOT UNDERSTAND. However, like Peter, we can declare by faith that what God is doing is His will, because we know His voice.

God says,

“They set the ark of God on a new cart and brought it from the house of Abinadab, which was on the hill. Uzzah and Ahio, sons of Abinadab, were guiding the new cart with the ark of God on it, and Ahio was walking in front of it. David and all Israel were celebrating with all their might before the Lord, with castanets,[harps, lyres, timbrels, sistrums and cymbals. When they came to the threshing floor of Nakon, Uzzah reached out and took hold of the ark of God, because the oxen stumbled. The Lord’s anger burned against Uzzah because of his irreverent act; therefore God struck him down, and he died there beside the ark of God.”
