2 Corinthians 6:14-15 New Living Translation (NLT)
The Temple of the Living God
14 Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? 15 What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil[a]? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever?
In The State Of The Church
We are in a hard state of transition… and it is not easy. As God is raising a John The Baptist and a tie with the Apostolic Church, there is a certain type of GROANING that has to take place… Even in our personal lives as it comes with dating there is a GROANING that has to take place.
We have many people in ministry who “talk” about dating and Christianity but lets be honest.. Most of us know that they are living double lives and what they preach is not matching up to their daily living.
With That Being Said
As a single woman myself I want to talk about some MAJOR signs that disqualify a man from being your godly spouse.
1. Is He Disrespectful To His Mother?
Believe it or not… I have encountered men that have literally beat their mothers. I have heard the testimony of a woman who son beat his mother and she accepted him back (which I DO NOT agree with) and I have encountered a man in my own dating life who said him and his mother used to fistfight… Needless to say God ended that quickly.
Because of this, we know that we are REALLY living in the Last Days. Now I used to hear about the Last Days growing up, but I really didn’t care about it because… well my childhood did not match up to what was put out on social media.
But as a Young Adult who is a SINGLE woman, through my dating life and daily encounters I see that we are really living in the LAST DAYS.
The Bible tells us,
Matthew 24:12 Good News Translation (GNT)
12 Such will be the spread of evil that many people’s love will grow cold.
Question: But what if his mother forgives him for beating her?
Answer: Ok… but what does that have to do with you?
The Bible says,
Deuteronomy 21:18-21 New International Version (NIV)
A Rebellious Son
18 If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, 19 his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. 20 They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.” 21 Then all the men of his town are to stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.
There is NO excuse for this ! Many people know that I was severely abused as child. My mother literally kicked me in my head growing up with her work shoes (she was a police officer) and GOD HIMSELF told me to not hit my mother.
If he would hit his mother… what would he do to you?
2. He calls himself a “prophet” , but he verbally abuses me.
Yup… been there and done that. This is one you have to be so careful with. The prophetic is a beautiful and supernatural thing… However, we are living in a time where many people LIE and call themselves prophets with NO FRUIT OR EVIDENCE that is who they really are. People want to be prophets for money, cars, and clothes yet they have NO IDEA what you have to go through…
If you are a REAL prophet you should know what it’s like to be on the other side of the mountain.
You should know what its like to be literally groomed in the desert.
You should know what its like to survive with NO MONEY or phone and yet somehow God has provided food for you to eat (1 Kings 17:4) … If he cant truthfully talk about the W.I.L.D.E.R.N.E.S.S. then he ain’t a prophet.
You have to be so careful with a man who is verbally abusive and yet calls himself a prophet or minister of God. He could be functioning in the Spirit of Jezebel (which he got from being a homosexual). Also, as you draw closer to God HE WILL abuse you because He is jealous of you… It starts verbally than it leads physically…
3. He always wants to be on the PHONE but don’t want to work.
Girl… run the other direction. Sis I mean sprint buy some sneakers and sprint the other direction. The Bible says,
2 Thessalonians 3:10 New International Version (NIV)
10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”
I hate a lazy man, I really do.
Me personally, my body was always physically pushed to the Limit in the Marine Corps. I had to lose 27 pounds in a week and a half… and a few days later I was hiking 12 miles with a 40 pound pack on my back. I have had to carry men during exercises during physical training test. Also, I ended my Marine Corps Boot Camp Training with a fractured foot and pinched nerve in my spine and pushed through until I graduated….
So when I hear a grown man sob about working after he has slept all day! I cant… I’m not the one for it.
But God is daily humbling me as he grooms me into who He has called me to be.
With that being said,
Keep God first and really take heed to what I am saying. It really is time for us Christians to stop pretending in our personal lives and live up to a Christ like standard.
If He is any of these (this is ONLY for women… don’t play with me). Then let him go.
Well Will I Ever Have A Good Spouse
If you obey God then yes you will !
* Sometimes I hear in ministry , “obey the prophet” and they misuse the text from Hosea.
There was someone that I dated years ago… Now God warned me in a dream that He was not the man for me, but ofcourse I still went and did what I wanted.
But just like GOD said it didn’t work out.
God could not bless our sin. He wasn’t my David.
If you want a Boaz, the glean like Ruth.
If you want a good husband then act like it ! Start deleting old boyfriends numbers, stop stalking your ex’s page and asking him how he is doing. The Bible says that Faith Without Works Is Dead! If you want the spouse then act like it ! Amen ? Amen !
