The Impostor Against Marriage

There is a couple I used to know, lovely couple, who would almost fit “the perfect couple” category if there were any. They were always excited about each other; there was no “sign” that anything was wrong in the marriage, no “sign” at all. They were like role models to many in our circle and me; we always looked forward to seeing them at every gathering.  They always looked good, so good together.

What Went Wrong?
After some time, about three or four years after I knew them, I heard they were no longer married, I was shocked and very curious to know what went wrong. Her husband later told my husband that she said she had an encounter with God in which He told her that her husband was not her husband.
God said he is not your husband after what, seven years of marriage?
People tried to talk her out of the snare of this voice she heard but she insisted that “God” had told her that her husband was no longer her husband. Once when I saw her husband with their now so grown up children I could not hold back the tears after they left us.

This Cannot Be God!
“This cannot be God,” I thought to myself. She is so sure she heard a voice, but I am so sure it most certainly is not God’s voice she heard.God disapproves divorce. Malachi 2:16
He cannot contradict His word, He would be breaking His own principle, He is a perfect God. He permits divorce on grounds of infidelity Matthew 19:9 but I believe His law on law and forgiveness overrides that permission… my opinion please. Another one of my opinion is divorce in the case of threat to life…

Please note that this is not just about divorce, it is rather about listening to “voices” instead of God’s word for decision making in marriage. 

Any voice that advices any one against God’s counsel as it is written in scriptures is not the voice of God, satan is an imposter and he goes about trying to pose as God in order to steal, kill and destroy; his chief mission.

For such men are false apostles [spurious, counterfeits], deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles (special messengers) of Christ (the Messiah). And it is no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light; 2 Corinthians 11:13-14 (AMP) Emphasis are mine

Any husband or wife who is basing their decisions or actions on “voices” rather than God’s word will sooner than later destroy their marriage, satan can appear “like” God, he is a super imposter, only a thorough check with God’s word can defeat him and his devices.

When we pray for guidance concerning a matter in our marriages we must ensure that we check what we hear with God’s word.  If we hear anything that does not tally with God’s word we should discard it. Many homes that I know have been destroyed because they heard “a voice”, they refused to reason with God’s word and the enemy capitalized on this to penetrate, deceive and destroy their homes.

She Refused To Remember
This woman in question forgot to reason that after seven years of marriage, her own mom left her dad, and the enemy has succeeded in making her follow the same trend. We must be sober and vigilant, we must resist the enemy, God’s word is a strong weapon against him and if we would use this standard to run our marriages, he will not stand a chance against us.

Have you had to deal with hearing voices that contradict God’s word? Do you know anyone who has, what do you think about hearing voices?

    We will always hear voices especially when situations are contrary to our expectations. I mean when we are angry. But it up to us with the help of the Holy Spirit to silence these voices and thoughts with the word of God. And always seek counsel before we take major decisions. The Lord help us to walk with Him and stay on the straight and narrow path In Jesus Name. Amen. Have a blessed night ma. Much love to you and all yours.

    So true, Ugochi! I’ve heard of a few people who take this tack, giving God credit for their decision to leave their spouse. How this must offend and break the heart of God! I love that you urge us to look to scripture to discern the truth on a matter–especially one as important and valued by God. Great job, my friend. I’m so glad you link up weekly at Wedded Wed!

    Love is a strong commitment to live with another soul until the day you die. It is not an easy journey. There are many trials in the way, but God’s grace is sufficient for us.
    The only voice we should listen to is the voice of His Word. Every other voice is counterfeit and will lead to loss, pain and destruction.
    May we receive grace to hear Him when he speaks from His Word and walk with Him in Spirit and in truth.
    I recently wrote and article on my on The Voice of Strangers.

      Every other voice is counterfeit indeed, His word is the only true and final authority.

    So sad! Thanks for sharing. God speaks primarily through His Word and that is our final place to go for our authority in our life.

    I agree God cannot contradict His word. I know someone who swore she hear a loud audible voice of God. She used to say that God spoke directly to her and she made it her duty to listen and obey. The things she did in response to the voices were not only a direct contradiction of the Word of God, but some were illegal. Turns out she was diagnosed with bipolar and schizophrenia. The voices were real to her and quieted with medication.
    My point is sometimes when people are so convicted by the voices in their head, sometimes it’s a mental issue. I still know that no mental or medical problem is bigger than God.
