I Feel I Made a Mistake Marrying, What Now?

Hi Paul, 

I just read your testimony!  I was wondering if God hardened the heart of your ex wife. I have done some research with divorce and I know that Corinthians 7:15 says “…but if the unbeliever leaves, let him go.  The believing brother or sister is not bound in such cases.  God has called you to live in peace.”  I was thinking that if God did harden her heart and left you, then this would be grounds for divorce. I wanted  contact you to see if you were willing to share this detail of your story, if she ended up leaving you or you left her to avoid compromising yourself.   

My husband “believes” in God and Jesus, but does not live a life like he truly believes. In my eyes, I do not consider him a “believer” because he has not laid down his life for Jesus.  There have been times I have felt disconnected from God because I felt he has made me compromise at times.  I am not happy with compromising at all.  We are separated because I do not know what to do and I do not want to compromise on living a Godly life. 

Similar to your story, I do feel that I have made a mistake with marrying him.  My husband wants to remain married regardless of our differences. God has showed MUCH grace after calling out to him in regards to this issue, but I am stuck on the do’s and dont’s of what the bible says. I feel that if my husband wants to stay married I should remain married because of 1 Corinthians 7:15.  

I look forward to your response!

 Thank you for your time!

 Kristin

Hi Kristin, 

In answer to your question – no, God didn’t harden the heart of my ex-wife because she never believed in the first place. I was in fornication marrying her and that was why I needed to leave her. In other words, I was in sin; we weren’t married in the eyes of God. 

My partner wanted to stay with me, but truly we both weren’t happy if we couldn’t be ourselves and pursue what God had for each of us. This was amply proven as we tried to keep things together for a short while. 

So I initiated and followed through on the separation, by God’s grace. 

Is your husband truly your husband, or did you do what I did – enter into and remain in fornication while trying to make it “kosher” by marrying? You need to know the answer to this question. 

The answer to your situation certainly isn’t trying to make your husband a Christian (I’m speaking of the true kind – not manmade). That’s not your call. If this man is your husband, you need to submit to him in the Lord, except not doing the things you know God directly forbids and doing whatever else God requires of you. 

Are you truly a convert to Christ by the power of faith in Him, Kristin, or are you a proselyte of men? I had been given the gift of supernatural faith in Christ, which if one receives and walks in it, will separate him or her from the world without the person having to try to make it happen, except when one goes astray as I did. Then obedience is necessary to remedy the situation.

Are you reading the teachings and materials on our site, which will direct you into the life-giving ways of the Lord by faith? Are you hearing Him here? 

Paul

Apparently "your deffintion of a false teacher " is incorrect .      deffintion of false teacher.   " having a form of Godliness but dening the power there of "   calling a work of God as being of  the devil. And i purposely printed devil in lower case and God in upper case letters. The devil is a loser . Jesus defeated the devil and we as believers as being joint heirs wirh Christ are more than just mere overcomers. Its high time christians / believers start to see their Identity in Christ !   Many just have a head knowledge and no heart knowledge.  What is our purpose here on earth? It is to have a " realationship with our heavenly Father. Also to show, live, and teach about God's love for everyone !  The self righteous ones seem to think otherwise . There is coming a day very soon that many many people will be surprised , for God will say depart from me for I never knew you !     Jesus it's all about " JESUS ! And his Love for all humans " Share Jesus's love and once people get a Revelation of it .... It Changes Lives !    For God himself said that not even his wrath could bring a man to repentance.

From: Mary Sent: October 13, 2015 2:56 PM To: Victor Hafichuk Subject: What an awesome testimony Victory, I find myself reading your testimony like I am ready my own written book.  I am in Charis Bible College 4th year.  The Lord started showing me scriptures that didn’t convey the same message as I was being taught. Our Spirit is perfect but our souls and body aren’t and won’t be until we receive our glorified bodies.  I just couldn’t wrap mind head around that.  or We shouldn’t sin but if we do, thank God for Jesus.  He justified all sin.  I was actually spiritually throwing up.  That ate at me. Andrew teaches the true word of God but always but a twist on it.  He just taught about Pride and then said that Jesus died for all our sins. He has this body, soul and spirit book that is only his opinion but in order for it to work I have to either ignore scripture or twist it to fit. The Lord showed me that he died breaking the dominion of sin, The cross keeps us from sin not in it. Anyway, Jesus woke me up telling me that his when people say they believe they don’t.  I woke up in tears.  I love him so much. I can’t believe all the scripture that tell us what we will must do to obtain what the Lord so purposely died for us to have is not being taught.   By listening to Jimmy S.  That’s when I discovered true salvation without works message.  I know he is on your list but the truth is if it’s true still works. Do you have any teaching on the Spirit....

I am retired and have Parkinsons , so I like to go straight to the truth. Granted Paul Washer is false, who then would you consider to be true ?

There’s only one way to know who truly represents the Lord Jesus Christ and that is to “get it from the horse’s mouth.” That was our only alternative. Only Him can you trust. You don’t trust us, which you shouldn’t, so why ask us? “Let it not be! But let God be true, and every man a liar; as it is written, ‘That You might be justified in Your sayings, and will overcome when You are judged’” (Romans 3:4 MKJV). \/ From: Elpidio To: Victor Hafichuk  Sent: Monday, Oct...
