(Temple Marriage)
Divorce Not Authorized ---

SCRIPTORIAN COMPILER'S PREFIX AND COMMENTS (just my opinion):

{ There's not much to support divorce! It is plainly AGAINST THE LAW OF GOD. But I really believe the scriptures that state you commit adultery when you divorce pertain to ETERNAL MARRIAGE, TEMPLE MARRIAGE - and not to temporal law-of-the-land marriage. With temporal marriage, since that is the law-of-the-land marriage (which God is not so concerned about), and the law of the land condones DIVORCE, divorce is therefore just as justified as the marriage is. Wherein with ETERNAL MARRIAGE, TEMPLE MARRIAGE, which is just about the most important ordinance there is, to deal treacherously against your wife or husband and divorce her or him rocks the boat so vehemently that the two of you might lose your exaltation and eternal life! DIVORCE IS NOT CONDONED IN THE MARRIAGE THAT GOD AUTHORIZES! ETERNAL MARRIAGE, TEMPLE MARRIAGE, is, FOREVER MARRIAGE! THIS ETERNAL MARRIAGE COVENANT is not meant to be taken lightly. To do so, makes you a liar and a thief. IT IS A FOREVER COVENANT THAT IS NEVER SUPPOSED TO BE BROKEN! SO TO BREAK IT, TO DIVORCE YOUR HUSBAND OR WIFE WHOM YOU WERE SEALED TO IN THE TEMPLE, AND TO MARRY ANOTHER---IS COMMITTING ADULTERY AGAINST YOUR HUSBAND OR WIFE WHOM YOU ARE MARRIED FOR ETERNITY TO! Since the marriage covenant that The Catholics make is only for this earth, and their marriage will end at death anyway --- it isn't so essential that that couple stays together just for this life. I'm not saying that they should divorce, that their till-death-do-us-part marriage isn't important; I'm just saying when God made His NO DIVORCE CLAUSE, before the world was, He didn't have the Catholic marriages in mind. Nor did He have the Baptist marriages in mind. Or the Lutheran marriages. He didn't have any marriage in a false church or religion in mind. God only had HIS TEMPLE MARRIAGE COVENANT IN MIND! This does not mean that you should serially marry and divorce, marry and divorce, marry and divorce. But what the country of The Philippines do for example, of not allowing divorce, comes from a lack of understanding of the true meaning of the doctrines of Jesus Christ, and is WRONG! People do make mistakes in marrying the wrong person for them, and especially when your partner does not want to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and you do. A person should not be forced to stay in a bad marriage. Does this also apply to Temple Marriage. Of course! Nonetheless, it is Heavenly Father's commandment, and one of the most important of all of His commandments, so, if you are eternally married, ACCORDING TO the LAW OF GOD, YOU COVENANTED TO STAY WITH THAT TEMPLE SEALING, TO ETERNALLY REMAIN SEALED TO YOUR PARTNER! According to the Law of God, you are BOUND TO THE MARRIAGE WHETHER IT IS GOOD OR BAD. If you are a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ, which in these latter-days is called, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, it is not your place to try to dissolve that Holy Temple Ordinance and Sealing that you sealed you as a husband and wife in the sight of God. It is not your place to try to Divorce the man or the woman you were eternally sealed to. Your Temple Marriage is not just a law-of-the-and marriage. It is an ETERNAL MARRIAGE COVENANT that you made! Not to be taken lightly! It is the most important "COVENANT" you can make in this life! And you made it with that man or that woman whom you now are having problems with. Nonetheless, no matter how many problems you may find with him or her, your place is to try to make the marriage work, (and again we are not speaking about Temporal Marriage here but about ETERNAL SEALINGS done in a true temple of The Lord; your job is to try to make you and your spouse a more faithful and more committed son and daughter joined unto Heavenly Father. If your spouse is the major problem, such as he or she commits adultery on you, or does not want to go to Church or be spiritual, or fights against you going to Church or paying tithing or being spiritual in any way, but you yourself do remain faithful and obedient to The Lord and to His Church and to His Gospel, and also remain faithful and committed to your Temple Sealing, then chances are that someday The Lord Himself might DISSOLVE your temple sealing, might DIVORCE you from your unrighteous husband or wife and when The Lord does this He probably will give you to another who is more faithful - even as The Lord gave David's wives to another (which we will read about below). But it is not your job to do that TEMPLE DIVORCING yourself! Put your plight into The Lord's hands. }

"5 TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART; AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING."
"6 IN ALL THY WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE SHALL DIRECT THY PATHS." --- [Proverbs 3: 5-6 - Bible]

{ Let The Lord handle it ... Cry unto The Lord in mighty prayer about your unfaithful spouse, and eventually The Lord Himself might answer and resolve the situation. Be faithful not only to The Lord, but to your husband or wife, and especially be faithful to yourself: let the Lord handle it ... }


"21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

"22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man;

"23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man.

"24 Therefore shall A MAN leave his father and mother, and SHALL CLEAVE UNTO HIS WIFE: AND THEY SHALL BE ONE FLESH.

25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed." --- [Genesis 2: 21-25 - Bible]


"This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him:"

"MALE and FEMALE CREATED HE THEM, and blessed them, AND CALLED THEIR NAME ADAM, in the day when they were created." --- [Genesis 5: 1-2 - Bible]


"1 WHEN A MAN HATH TAKEN A WIFE, AND MARRIED HER, AND IT COME TO PASS THAT SHE FIND NO FAVOUR IN HIS EYES, because he hath found some uncleaness in her: THEN LET HIM WRITE HER A BILL OF DIVORCEMENT, and give it in her hand, AND SEND HER OUT OF HIS HOUSE."

"2 AND WHEN SHE IS DEPARTED OUT OF HIS HOUSE, SHE MAY GO AND BE ANOTHER MAN'S WIFE." --- [Deuteronomy 24: 1-2 - Bible]


"31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement;"

"32 But I say unto you, THAT WHOSOEVER SHALL PUT AWAY HIS WIFE, SAVING FOR THE CAUSE OF FORNICATION, CAUSETH HER TO COMMIT ADULTERY; AND WHOSOEVER MARRY HER THAT IS DIVORCED COMMITTETH ADULTERY." --- [Matthew 5: 31-32 - Bible]

{ It is so important to realize here, in Matthew 5: 31-32, that The Lord was NOT referring to Catholic Marriage (The Catholic Church didn't even exist when He said this!) (What existed was HIS CHURCH, The Church of Jesus Christ, and this was in reference to HIS MARRIAGE --- TEMPLE MARRIAGE --- marriages sealed in the temples of the Lord.) }

{A more clear translation would be something like this:

"32 But I say unto you, THAT WHOSOEVER SHALL PUT AWAY HIS WIFE, {WHOM HE MARRIED IN THE TEMPLE FOR ETERNITY, } SAVING FOR THE CAUSE THAT {SHE FORNICATED WITH ANOTHER MAN BEFORE SHE MARRIED YOU SO THAT YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE MARRYING A VIRGIN BUT SHE LIED TO YOU THAT SHE WAS A VIRGIN WHEN ACTUALLY SHE WAS NOT A VIRGIN BUT AN UNREPENTANT FORNICATOR, WHOM YOU SHOULD NOT FORGIVE BECAUSE SHE HAS NOT REPENTED OF IT} "CAUSETH HER TO COMMIT ADULTERY; AND WHOSOEVER MARRY HER THAT IS DIVORCED," "COMMITTETH ADULTERY." {Because she is really, STILL, ETERNALLY MARRIED, and you are not her real spouse! but a co-adulterer!}

--- [Matthew 5: 31-32 - Bible]


"31 It hath been written, that whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement."

"32 Verily, verily, I say unto you, that WHOSEOVER SHALL PUT AWAY HIS WIFE, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery; AND WHOSO SHALL MARRY HER WHO IS DIVORCED, COMMITTETH ADULTERY." --- [3rd Nephi 12: 31-32 - The Book of Mormon]


"FOR THE LORD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, SAITH THAT HE HATETH PUTTING AWAY; for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the Lord of Hosts;"

"therefore "TAKE HEED TO YOUR SPIRIT," --- [Malachi 2: portions of 16 & 15 - Bible] {The Apostle Paul also referred to marriage as} "YOUR SPIRIT," {in a few verses, such as:}

"28 SO OUGHT MEN TO LOVE THEIR WIVES AS THEIR OWN BODIES. HE THAT LOVETH HIS WIFE LOVETH HIMSELF." ...

"33 Nevertheless LET EVERY ONE OF YOU IN PARTICULAR SO LOVE HIS WIFE EVEN AS HIMSELF; and the wife see that she reverence her husband." --- [Ephesians 5: 28 & 33- Bible]

{and}

{ Know ye not that he" {and she} "which is JOINED to an harlot is ONE BODY? "FOR TWO, SAITH HE," {God} "SHALL BE ONE FLESH."

"BUT HE THAT IS JOINED UNTO THE LORD" {as an Eternal Husband and Wife MARRIED IN THE TEMPLE} "SHALL BE ONE SPIRIT." }

{returning to the scriptures in Malachi concerning Eternal Marriage, let us requote them, since only portions of them were used above}

"15 AND DID HE NOT MAKE ONE?" {ONE Body united together in Eternal Marriage, Temple Marriage, that become ONE FLESH AND ONE SPIRIT IN THE LORD:}

"Nevertheless, NEITHER IS THE MAN WITHOUT THE WOMAN, NEITHER THE WOMAN WITHOUT THE MAN, IN THE LORD." --- [1st Corinthians 11: 11 - Bible]

"Yet had he the residue of The Spirit. And wherefore ONE? "THAT HE MIGHT SEEK A GODLY SEED." { "A GODLY SEED" means children who are GODS themselves! } :

"I HAVE SAID, YE ARE GODS!, AND ALL OF YOU ARE CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH." --- [Psalm 82: 6 - Bible]

"AND IF CHILDREN, THEN HEIRS; HEIRS OF GOD, AND JOINT-HEIRS WITH CHRIST" --- [Romans 8: 17 - Bible]

{And when we become} "HEIRS OF GOD {we fulfill the scripture which states:} "THAT HE MIGHT SEEK A GODLY SEED."

"HEIRS OF GOD" AND A GODLY SEED" are one and the same!

"HEIRS OF GOD" AND A GODLY SEED" can only be a husband and a wife MARRIED FOR ETERNITY IN A TEMPLE OF THE LORD!

"1 In the Celestial glory there are three heavens or degrees;"

"2 And in order to obtain the highest, "A MAN" {AND A WOMAN} "MUST ENTER INTO THIS ORDER OF THE PRIESTHOOD [MEANING THE NEW AND EVERLASTING COVENANT OF MARRIAGE];

"3 AND IF HE DOES NOT, HE CANNOT OBTAIN IT."

"4 He may enter into the other;" {The other two kingdoms of The Celestial Kingdom because, as said, In the Celestial glory there are three heavens or degrees;" "But that is the end of his kingdom; he cannot have an increase." --- [D&C 131: 1-4]

{ continuing with Malachi 2: 15 and 14 }

"And wherefore ONE? "THAT HE MIGHT SEEK A GODLY SEED." Therefore, THEREFORE TAKE HEED TO YOUR SPIRIT, AND LET NONE DEAL TREACHEROUSLY AGAINST THE WIFE OF HIS YOUTH."

"Yet ye say wherefore? Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: YET IS SHE THY {SPIRITUAL} "COMPANION" {THROUGHOUT THE ETERNITIES} , "AND THE WIFE OF THY" {or rather, "THE" ETERNAL} "COVENANT" {THAT THOU MADE WITH HER IN THE TEMPLE.} --- [Malachi 2: 16 & 15 & 14 - Bible]


"3 The Pharisees also came unto Him, tempting Him, and saying unto Him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?"

"4 And He answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that HE WHICH MADE THEM AT THE BEGINNING MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE,"

"5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, AND SHALL CLEAVE UNTO HIS WIFE: AND THEY TWAIN SHALL BE ONE FLESH?"

"6 THEREFORE, THEY ARE NO MORE TWAIN, BUT ONE FLESH. WHAT THEREFORE GOD HATH JOINED TOGETHER, LET NOT MAN PUT ASUNDER."

"7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and TO PUT HER AWAY?"

"8 He saith unto them, MOSES BECAUSE OF THE HARDNESS OF YOUR HEARTS SUFFERED YOU TO PUT AWAY YOUR WIVES: BUT FROM THE BEGINNING IT WAS NOT SO."

{The people under Moses were not willing to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ under the Authority of The Melchizedek Priesthood. The Melchizedek Priesthood has the power of Eternal Marriage in the Temples of the Lord, and the people under Moses rejected this! But The Lord} "SUITING HIS MERCIES ACCORDING TO THE CONDITIONS OF THE CHILDREN OF MEN" --- [D&C 45: 15] {downgraded His Higher Gospel to a Lower Gospel, calling it, The Law of Moses, and this PREPARATORY GOSPEL, called The Law of Moses, created a new Priesthood by which it operated under, called, The Aaronic Priesthood. Not only did The Aaronic Priesthood and The Law of Moses not have Temple Marriage included in it, but because the marriages performed under The Aaronic Priesthood and The Law of Moses were TEMPORAL MARRIAGES, - Till Death Do You Part - The Lord also granted the people of Moses a Bill of Divorce:}

MOSES BECAUSE OF THE HARDNESS OF YOUR HEARTS SUFFERED YOU TO PUT AWAY YOUR WIVES:

"BUT FROM THE BEGINNING" {which was The Gospel of Jesus Christ under the authority of The Melchizedek Priesthood, which the people of Moses rejected!} "IT WAS NOT SO."

"9 And I say unto you, WHOSOEVER SHALL PUT AWAY HIS WIFE, except it be for fornication, AND SHALL MARRY ANOTHER, COMMITTETH ADULTERY: AND WHOSO MARRIETH HER WHICH IS PUT AWAY DOTH COMMIT ADULTERY." --- [Matthew 19: 3-9 - Bible]


"26 AND GOD SAID, LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE, AFTER OUR LIKENESS: and let THEM {THEM = The husband and wife (Adam and Eve) ETERNALLY MARRIED by The Lord (probably in the garden of Eden): know that Adam and Ever did not fornicate (outside of marriage) in sin, and raise children without being married to one another! Nor were they married with a Catholic Marriage Covenant of Till-Death-Do-You-Part! (The Catholics were several thousand years in the future!) Adam and Ever were married } "IN THE LORD" :

"Nevertheless, NEITHER IS THE MAN WITHOUT THE WOMAN, NEITHER THE WOMAN WITHOUT THE MAN, IN THE LORD." --- [1st Corinthians 11: 11 - Bible]

{ "AND MARRIED BY THE LORD" }

"WHAT THEREFORE GOD HATH JOINED TOGETHER, LET NOT MAN PUT ASUNDER."

{continuing}

"and let THEM have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." "27 SO GOD CREATED MAN IN HIS OWN IMAGE, IN THE IMAGE OF GOD CREATED HE HIM: MALE AND FEMALE CREATED HE THEM." --- [Genesis 1: 26-27 -Bible]


"2 And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him.

And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?

"4 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.

"5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, FOR THE HARDNESS OF YOUR HEART HE WROTE YOU THIS PRECEPT."

{Because they rejected The Melchizedek Priesthood which has Eternal Marriage. Because they rejected The Gospel of Jesus Christ; therefore, FOR THE HARDNESS OF YOUR HEART HE WROTE YOU THIS PRECEPT." {Because it didn't matter anyway: The marriages they were willing and wanting to be married under automatically resulted in a Bill of Divorcement (manner of speaking) on the death of either the husband or wife: so why not grant such a Divorce while they lived. That's what the people wanted: The Lord gave into it ...}

BUT FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE CREATION GOD MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE." {HUSBAND AND WIFE MEANT TO BE MARRIED FOR ETERNITY under The Melchizedek Priesthood.} --- [Mark 10: 2-6 - Bible]


"NEITHER IS THE MAN WITHOUT THE WOMAN, NEITHER THE WOMAN WITHOUT THE MAN, IN THE LORD." --- [1st Corinthians 11: 11 - Bible]


"7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;"

"8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

"9 WHAT THEREFORE GOD HATH JOINED TOGETHER, LET NOT MAN PUT ASUNDER." --- [Mark 10: 7-9 - Bible]


"11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness."

"12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, HOW SHALL YE BELIEVE, IF I TELL YOU OF HEAVENLY THINGS?" --- [John 3: 11-12 - Bible]


"NEVERTHELESS, NEITHER IS THE MAN WITHOUT THE WOMAN, NEITHER THE WOMAN WITHOUT THE MAN, IN THE LORD." --- [1st Corinthians 11: 11 - Bible]


"Which THINGS also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, BUT WHICH THE HOLY GHOST TEACHETH, COMPARING SPIRITUAL THINGS WITH SPIRITUAL." --- [1st Corinthians 2: 13 -Bible]


"3 Therefore, prepare thy heart to receive and obey the instructions which I am about to give unto you; for all those who have this law revealed unto them must obey the same."

"4 For behold, I reveal unto you a new and an everlasting covenant; and if ye abide not that covenant, then are ye damned; FOR NO ONE CAN REJECT THIS COVENANT and be permitted to enter into my glory.

"5 For all who will have a blessing at my hands shall abide the law which was appointed for that blessing, and the conditions thereof, as were instituted from before the foundation of the world."

"6 And as pertaining to the new and everlasting covenant, it was instituted for the fulness of my glory; and he that receiveth a fulness thereof must and shall abide the law, or he shall be damned, saith the Lord God.

"7 And verily I say unto you, that the conditions of this law are these: All covenants, contracts, bonds, obligations, oaths, vows, performances, connections, associations, or expectations, that are not made and entered into and sealed by the Holy Spirit of promise, of him who is anointed, both as well for time and for all eternity, and that too most holy, by revelation and commandment through the medium of mine anointed, whom I have appointed on the earth to hold this power (and I have appointed unto my servant Joseph to hold this power in the last days, and there is never but one on the earth at a time on whom this power and the keys of this priesthood are conferred), are of no efficacy, virtue, or force in and after the resurrection from the dead; for all contracts that are not made unto this end have an end when men are dead."

"8 Behold, MINE HOUSE IS A HOUSE OF ORDER, SAITH THE LORD GOD, AND NOT A HOUSE OF CONFUSION."

"9 Will I accept of an offering , saith The Lord, that is not made in my name?"

"10 OR WILL I ACCEPT AT YOUR HANDS THAT WHICH I HAVE NOT APPOINTED?"

"11 AND WILL I APPOINT UNTO YOU, SAITH THE LORD, EXCEPT IT BE BY LAW, EVEN AS MY FATHER AND I ORDAINED UNTO YOU, BEFORE THE WORLD WAS? --- [D&C 132: 3-11]


"38 David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the beginning of creation until this time; AND IN NOTHING DID THEY SIN SAVE IN THOSE THINGS WHICH THEY RECEIVED NOT OF ME."

"39 David's wives and concubines were given unto him by Me, by the hand of Nathan, my servant, and others of the Prophets that had the keys of this power; and in none of these things did he sin against me save in the case of Uriah and his wife; and therefore he hath fallen from his exaltation, and received his portion; AND HE SHALL NOT INHERIT THEM" {The Eternal Wives that} were given unto him by Me, by the hand of Nathan, my servant, "out of the world," "FOR I GAVE THEM" {David's Eternal Wives that I gave to David while David was righteous and obeyed Me} "UNTO ANOTHER," "saith The Lord." --- [D&C 132: 38-39]


{ I bear testimony to you that I know that TEMPLE MARRIAGE is the only true marriage OF GOD AND BY GOD on the face of the earth. Marriage OF GOD AND BY GOD is supposed to last. Marriage OF GOD AND BY GOD is supposed to be ETERNAL AND NEVER-ENDING, A MAJOR PART OF ETERNAL LIFE: SO MUCH SO THAT YOU CANNOT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE WITHOUT ETERNAL MARRIAGE!}

{All other marriages, including but not limited to The Catholic Marriage Covenant, are of MEN and have no force after the men and women who are married under them leave this earth.}


{Divorce is not} APPOINTED {unto any who are sealed under a true TEMPLE OF THE LORD COVENANT.}

{ I bear testimony that Divorce In Eternal Marriage Is NOT AUTHORIZED By God. }

{And this I leave with you IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. AMEN. - (Brother Erving Axel Lambert - 1/29/2017) }
