(Raw Text:)

hello again friends and listeners and thank you for joining me I'm pastor Visser of beautiful Brooks Georgia and the covenant peoples church ministry and outlook and I'm pleased to be joining you this weekend for the continuation of our look and scrutinize ation expository early on every word that was spoken by the minor prophet Micah and if you were with me Wednesday evening you know that we actually left off towards the conclusion of chapter 1 but given the fact that my notes were out of sorts I wasn't able to actually bring forth everything that I wanted to on that particular lecture part 2 and therefore today before we actually move into chapter 2 and the continuation of our look at the words of this minor prophet I basically need to preach the parts that were left out that pertained to chapter 1 for example remember in chapter 1 verse 7 Micah clearly says all the graven images thereof shall be beaten to pieces and all the hires thereof shall be burned with the fire and all the idols thereof I will lay desolate for she gathered it to the hire of an harlot and they shall return to the hire of an harlot and that right there should tell you what I've really touched upon in part 2 and that is the fat bet Yahweh God is truly married to the Israelite men women and children however every time we go out serve another God when we go after any type of falsehood it is akin scripturally every single time to adultery and therefore to actually begin this particular Sunday morning I want to prove and confirm several facts that I feel will not only edify you in our look on my cup but also if there's any question or doubt within your mind as to me preaching blameless bishops that particular sermon if you were with me for my Halloween broadcast you probably already know that cause many men and women to come in and say well pastor pisser you know he's attacking me but you will see from today we are called to be perfect as Yahweh God is perfect if Yahweh God is married you don't need me to point out that Paul was teaching the Levitical law in that regard but I want you to consider a statement it's found in Jeremiah also a prophet to the Judeans but in verse 14 this is what we learn Yahweh speaking turn Oh backsliding children saith Yahweh for I am married unto you and I will take you one of a city and two of a family and I Yahweh speaking will bring you to Zion now why is that important because it clearly proves Yahweh God once was married but due to the Israelites continual desire to go after foreign gods to go after the heathen nations which was Yahweh God who had to give us a bill of divorcement and this is very important when understanding the marriage supper of the Lamb Christ the lamb slain before the foundation of the world who ultimately comes in and reclaims that bride therefore in Jeremiah chapter three verse 14 the commandment is I am married unto you O backsliding children and contacts the Israelites so first point for the day the Israelites are supposed to be the bride of God or the right of Christ however when they go and serve other gods when they go after any form of fiction including judeo-christian them they are considered clearly an adulterer now why is any of this important bear important in this era because we hear in the media over and over the term men going their own way or you owe it to yourself but that was never the will of God before you even get to preaching the Word of God how can I say that well couple points I'd like to make turn with me to the book of Proverbs this is wise King Solomon and what he has to say and I should interject it we're only going to touch one of his particular proverbs dealing with the fact that a virtuous woman and children are both blessings or in inheritance of Yahweh God therefore no man who is not married with children can preach as per the Levitical law and Paul who taught that same Levitical law in the Pauline epistles but consider a statement in proverbs chapter 12 solomon says in verse 4 a virtuous woman is a crown to her husband but she that makes ashamed is as rottenness to his bones does that sound familiar because it should based on what we've already covered today the wound that is incurable while the Israelite men women and children were meant to be a crown unto their husband Yahweh God they continually went and fornicated with the other nations and their gods don't believe me well let's consider a statement Paul makes and Ephesians a beautiful book that I have covered today where Paul gives the outline and the hierarchy of the Christian family Christian unit and we're going there first before we even look at what Yahshua taught concerning marriage divorce and remarriage okay so consider this statement as it is found in Ephesians chapter 5 but beginning in verse 22 where we learn wives submit yourselves unto your own husband's as unto the Lord for the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church and he this is the savior of the body therefore as the church is subject unto Christ so let the wives be to their own husband's in everything let's stop right there for just a moment we usually tend to take this and overlay Paul's teachings here in Ephesians 5 to our own personal and private walk and always overlook that we as the Bride of God we're supposed to be what not only a crown as we have confirmed today from proverbs 12 but we are to allow the head to dictate unto us the feminine Bride of God the Israelite men women and children thus is the will of God as it was taught by Paul as it was taught by Christ and ultimately perverted by the Pharisees continue reading husbands love your wives as Christ also loved the church which is exactly what Yahweh God did for his unruly bride husbands love your wife that he might sanctify and cleanse it by the watering of the word so ought men to love their wives as their own body the only God truly did in fact it's very important to understand that Yahweh God created man in his own likeness in his own image in the very act of marriage my friend but so far we have proven Yahweh God is married to the Israelite people he ultimately will get them a bill of divorcement a wife is supposed to be a crown of righteousness meaning the Israelites were supposed to be God's glory and crown but we're not and we prove that God is the head of the church and the wife is to be in submission to God the masculine just as the Israelites time and time again refused to do as such so I'd like you to consider the actual law of God on divorce and remarriage why is this important because it all ties right into Micah chapter one and today's current to say we're part of the Whore of Babylon is to make the world and all the nations of the earth drunk with the wine of her life fornication right so turn with me my friends to Deuteronomy this is the book of case law and I want you to consider a statement in Deuteronomy chapter 24 right in the very beginning pay close attention when a man has taken a wife and marries her and it comes to pass that she finds no favor in his eyes because he has found some uncleanness within her then let him write her a bill of divorcement and give it to her in her hand and send her out of his house consider reading and when she has departed from his house she may go in be another man's wife and if the latter husband hates her and writes her a bill of divorcement and gives it to her in her hand and sends her out of his house of which the latter husband died which she took to be his wife her former husband which said oh they may not take her again to be his wife after that she is defiled what are we looking at right here the law of marriage divorce and remarriage as per Moses handed down on Mount Zion I given directly of Yahweh God my friends and why was this given short answer because of the hardness of men's hearts but what I want you to understand right here is obviously if a bride is given a bill of divorcement as the Israelites were by Yahweh God then the husband must die in order for them to be remarried correct we just covered it for example continue reading when a man has taken a new wife he shall not go out to war neither be charged with any business and no man shall take the upper or lower millstone as a pledge you get the idea well you should what well we're gonna move into it right here before we actually look at chapter 2 but this is so important this is the reason why a bishop must be blameless the husband of one wife if you're gonna handle the Oracles of God then you need to mimic God who was married my friends and not only that willing to lay down his own life to reclaim his bride who would continually go whoring after other gods other nations so turn with me to the Gospel according to Matthew this is going to drive home the point and I want you to pay close attention to this Matthew chapter 19 we weren't beginning in verse 3 the Pharisees came unto Christ tempting him and saying unto Him is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for any cause 2 points number 1 the Pharisees were tempting God second point is this what did we just cover already from Deuteronomy chapter 24 the law of marriage and revolt or divorce and remarriage so obviously the Pharisees knew the answer to their question correct and they come to Christ at a time in his ministerial walk and they asked him not only is it lawful for a man to become divorced but if it lawful for a man to put away his wife for any reason Christ answers in verse 4 here in st. Matthew chapter 19 have you not read that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female and said for this cause shall a man leave father and mother and shall cleave to his wife and they twain shall become one flesh wherefore they are no more Twain or two but one flesh therefore what Yahweh God has put together let no man put asunder did you notice exactly how Christ answered he went back to the very beginning and he says this is the aspect of divorce one man one woman woman created up man just as the Israelites were up there husband God and created in the image and likeness to mirror exactly what was that now notice verse 7 the Pharisees say unto Christ why then did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement in order to put her away what is that what we just covered Deuteronomy chapter 24 verses 1 through 4 Christ is being asked by the Pharisees why then is there a provision for law concerning divorce in the law when God hates doors Christ answer is this Moses because of the hardness of your own hearts suffered you to put away your lies but from the beginning it was not so and I say unto you whosoever shall put away his wife except it be for the cause of fornication and shall marry another commits adultery and whoso marrieth us commit adultery what is that the very law of the Pharisees were attempting to for her but what I want you to notice it's very important it is this that a man shall leave mother and father and cleave unto his wife and they twain become one flesh thus the act of marriage and the only cause outside of this provision that we covered today given by Moses for the hardness of men's own hearts for divorce according to Christ is what fornication exactly what the Israelite men women and children were doing at the time of Micah Hosea Isaiah Jeremiah Ana might interject today as well so that God divorce the Israelite men women and children for the cause of what fornication the only grounds not because of the hardness of his own heart and I want to confirm that before we go any further Christ says right here in Matthew chapter 19 he says have you not read that he which made them at the beginning number one made them both male and female that's both Adams okay so beware the man who wants to come in and slip and say well this was different because well he was created from his rib right same word number 120 or 119 and the Strongs turned with me let's prove this right over to Genesis chapter 2 let's begin reading and verse 21 Yahweh 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 and the rib which Yahweh God had taken from man or Adam maybe a woman and brought her unto the man and Adam said pay close attention this is now bone of my bones flesh of my flesh she shall be called woman because she was taken out of man therefore shall a man leave father and mother and cleave unto his wife and they shall be one flesh exactly what Christ taught in the very beginning they were created male and female they were created for the act of marriage and God hates divorce but being the fact that fornication is the only cause for divorce he had no other options and we're going to prove that as well but before we actually get to that I want to prove the point I just met turn with me to the final book in the Old Testament the book of the minor prophet Malachi that I want you to consider a statement he makes in chapter 2 where we learn in verse 11 Judah has dealt treacherously and an abomination is committed in Israel and Jerusalem for Judah has profaned the holiness of the Lord which he loved and has married the daughter of a strange God stopping right there whose fault is it that Yahweh God gave a bill of divorcement and ultimately through his own grace sent Jesus Christ for the latter reconciliation and marriage supper of the lamb as per the Mosaic law because the law in the very beginning was that a man shall leave mother and father and cleave unto his own life why because he was created from the bright of God the Israelite men women and children were created by Yahweh who clearly said come let us make man in what our own image our own likeness these are very important aspects continue reading right here in verse 12 Yahweh will cut off the man that does this that does what that marries the daughter of a strange God why because it's a dull turi another way of saying fornication or porneia within the greek which encompasses all forms of unchastity but notice right here continue reading what say ye therefore because Yahweh has been witness against thee and the life of his youth the Israelites okay against whom thou has dealt treacherously and did he not make one yet he had the residue of the spirit and wherefore one he that might seek a godly seed for thus says Yahweh God the God of Israel he hates for putting away for one covers violence with this garment says Yahweh of hosts therefore take heed the use of your spirit that you give not treacherously exactly what the Pharisees were doing when they perverted the law itself to come in and say is it proper in an attempt to trap Jesus Christ for a man to put away his wife for any cause absolutely not it wasn't that way in the beginning in fact it was more strict and all of this is groundwork for you to understand exactly what we're looking at here in Micah chapter one so we're going to continue our study after I take a quick one-minute break and this would be the time for you to write down the information if you feel led of the

my good friends you know before that break in that information was given I was actually giving you basically an overview on Yahweh God's marriage to the Israelite men women and children they're continually going a whoring after other gods and God having to give them a bill of divorcement which ultimately then dictates as per the Mosaic law that unless the husband dies then the right the wife is not free to remarry right so let's continue what we were looking at in Hosea why is Jose important because Hosea was a good friend to Micah and he taught exactly the same exact thing Hosea chapter two let's begin reading right at the very beginning chapter 1 verse 1 say to your brethren say to your sisters plead with your mother and plead for she is not my wife neither am i her husband let her therefore put away whoredoms her sight and her adulteries from between her breath lest I Yahweh speaking through the minor Prophet Hosea strip her naked and says as in the day as she was born and make her as the wilderness and set her like a dry land and slay her with thirst I will not have mercy upon her children and they will all be the children of whoredoms why because they were met they were born outside of wedlock thus dictating their manners and or bastards and can't enter into the kingdom of Yahweh God but that's not the only part I want you to consider here in Isaiah notice he continues on I will return I will discover her the Israelites lewdness in the sight of her lover's and none shall deliver her that's us out of his Yahweh's hand for I will destroy her vines perfect trees where if she is set pay close attention the mindset of Israel these are my rewards that all my lovers have given me and I will make them a forest and even the beasts of the field shall eat upon them and I will visit her in the days of bullying wherein she burned incense unto them who believed a polite way of saying the plural bale other gods but did you notice right there we straight boy Lee of bourbon Hosea clearly says that the Israelites were a bunch of horse don't believe me well consider a statement he makes in the ninth chapter right in verse 1 rejoice not hosea says o Israel as the other people for the last God a whoring from thy God and has looked a reward upon every corn floor the floor and the winepress shall not feed them in the new wine shall fail her they shall not dwell in Yahweh's land who the Israelite men women and children therefore you understand part of the reason why ultimately the Israelites were dispersed abroad to cover the entire face of the earth because they were cast out of the land being their inheritance ironically the Word of God both say that children and a wife are a gift and heritage of Yahweh God Hosea is not the only one however Hosea was a contemporary to Micah that's been confirmed in this very series but so also as I say the Prophet to the Israelite men women and children Isaiah says right in chapter 23 but pay close attention verse 17 it shall come to pass at the end of 70 years Yahweh God will visit tyre and she shall turn to her hire and she the Israelite men women and children shall commit fornication with all the kingdoms upon the face of the earth so anybody who's asking why is this teaching on marriage divorce and remarriage so important well the answer should be obvious we live in an era now where the Whore of Babylon is coming in and basically making every nation drunk on the wine of her fornication which is the exact reason Yahweh God gave the Israelite men women and children a bill of divorcement to begin with continue reading right here notice fear and the pit and the snare are all upon thee o inhabitant of the earth and then it continues so so far jeremiah solomon and proverbs Paul in the new testament epistle of ephesians moses in the book of deuteronomy Christ in the Gospel according to Matthew Malachi in the minor prophets Moses in the book of Genesis Hosea and Isaiah both in the books of the prophets have all set exactly what I'm confirming right here that God was married and because the Israelite wanted to be horse instead of be faithful to their husband God had no other options because they were fornicating to give them a bill of divorcement and ultimately to send Christ to redeem don't believe me consider Ezekiel in the Book of Ezekiel this major prophet says in verse 16 however verse 30 how weak is dying heart asks Yahweh God seeing thou does all these things the work of an imperious and whorish woman in that thou builds the eminent place in the head of every way and makes nine high place in every street and has not been an harlot in that foul scorn sire but as a wife that commits adultery which takes strangers instead of her husband let's read that one more time what are the Israelites the Israelites here in the Book of Ezekiel are likened unto a wife that commits adultery and would prefer the stranger instead of their own husband verse 33 continues they give gifts to whores but thou guess gifts to thy lovers and hires them that they may come to thee on every side for all thy whoredoms and the contrary is in thee from the other woman in thy whoredoms there nobody should follow thee to commit items in that thou give us the reward and there shall be no reward given thee because thou are contrary wherefore o harlot hear the word of Yahweh and then Yahweh God continues through Ezekiel to chastise the Israelites for being exactly what we are whores who would prefer the company of a stranger who would rather go after another God or even elect men who will tickle our ears and tell you a marriage doesn't mean anything it's obviously very important enough for the Pharisees to come in and say well you could put away your husband or your wife for any reason right and Yahweh God had to say that's not to cause or Jesus Christ in the beginning it was not so in the beginning we were married to Yahweh God created in his very image and likeness just as Eve was Adam taken out of his side but we just like Ezekiel says would rather go and play the harlot so to actually give you the summation of this and to move in to chapter 2 if time allows turn with me again to the New Testament however this time I want you to consider the words of Paul in his general epistle to Hebrews or the Hebrews chapter 9 and we're going to begin reading right in verse 11 Christ being common high priest of good things to come by a greater and more perfect Tabernacle has not made things that is to say not of this building and or creation neither by the blood of goats and calves but by his own blood he entered it once to the holy place having obtained eternal eternal redemption for us for that the blood of bulls in the blood of goats and the ashes of an heifer how much more shall the blood of Christ who through the Eternal Spirit purge your conscience from dead works to serve the Living God pay close attention verse 15 and for this cause he is the mediator of the New Testament who Jesus Christ not Yahweh God why Yahweh God gave a bill of divorcement to the Israelites and through Grace and His only begotten son who ultimately as for his own parable of the wedding feast wedding banquet and ten virgins clearly said he is the bridegroom continue reading how much more shall the blood of Christ he is the mediator of the New Testament that by means of death for redemption of the transgressions that were under the first Testament they might receive the promise of what an inheritance why verse 16 in the New Testament book of Hebrews chapter 9 for where a testament a law or a commandment like we just covered today in Deuteronomy chapter 24 testament is there also must be of a necessity the death of the testator for a testament is of force and of none effect after a man is dead otherwise it is of no strength all the while the testator lives wherefore neither the first testament was dedicated without blood right Abel for when Moses had spoken every precept to the people according to the law he took two bloods of caste etc and went on to do that which of course is all just an old now why because Christ was the mediator of the New Testament meaning that the moment Christ said it is finished and gave up the ghost on Calvary Israel as Yahweh's God or Yahweh bride were free from the law of divorce and marriage or remarriage so why is that important because without that sacrifice made by Jesus Christ because Yahweh God or Christ himself Emmanuelle divorced us in the Old Testament without that act we'd have no redemption whatsoever because any will and testament which is a polite way of saying the law of God his will it's only in effect as long as that husband lives so we are dead to God but reborn within the spirit through Jesus Christ and we all become part of that marriage supper of the Lamb don't believe me turn with me to the Old Testament book of Revelation and for any of you who may have missed the announcement it was actually put out about a week ago starting January 1st on this very venue we're going to be looking at the book of Revelation every single line from revelation 1:1 all the way to the 20th second or the 22nd chapter in video format I know that will be popular because that is one thing that a majority of people will not cover we're going to cover it right now Revelation chapter 19 verse 6 John I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude and the voice of many waters and the voice of mighty thunderings saying Alleluia for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth let us be glad and rejoice and give honor unto Him who God for the marriage of the lamb has come and his wife the Israelites has made her shelf-ready what does that mean well obviously in the book of Revelation we learn of a marriage supper of the lamb but we also learned that that lamb was slain before the foundation of the world do we not we also know that Christ clearly taught there was a marriage supper of the Lamb exactly what we're covering right here continue reading and to her oh the Israelite men women and children that overcome the Bride of Christ to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen clean and white for the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints and he says unto me write blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the lamb and he saith unto me these are the true sayings of God what is the book of Revelation stands the reason it's considered the gospel of Jesus Christ and that's the exact reason we're going to be covering it from this very venue but obviously there was something called a marriage supper of the Lamb right and it's going to be and the ones who overcome are considered as per John the Saints meaning they're either slain for the Testament testimony of the world word or they are they who make war with the Whore of Babylon in the Beast system because they refuse to take the hire of an Whore they refuse to be in Ireland they know that Jesus Christ is the bridegroom and that ultimately that Christ will come out behold the bridegroom cometh they also want to be part of that marriage supper of the Lamb why is that important notice John says right here bless all day who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb Christ said many are called few are chosen the majority are called in the parable of the ten virgins all ten were called but only five made it in fact when the other five foolish virgins returned to that marriage supper of the Lamb Christ said depart from me I know you not why because they weren't prepared and because they were whores fornicating while they were virgins they were still spiritually ours and that's the entire point of what recovery why we live in a world where fornication is rampant on every level where they say who can make war with the Whore of Babylon in the berry peace system the short answer is you can if you remain chaste a virgin for your bride or your right groom depending on your gender but at the end of the day we must be true to y'all may God because Jesus Christ clearly taught it in the beginning God created male and female and not only that that they were one flesh thus the very definition biblically of marriage is one man one woman and in fact I'd like to reprove that point as well as time is getting away from me we only have a few more minutes so we'll actually begin chapter 2 I have my notes written this coming Wednesday evening and I hope that you'll be part of that with me but back to what Christ says in Matthew chapter 19 for this cause shall a man leave mother and father so the question that was answered is this is it lawful for a man to put away his wife singular as per the Mosaic law that's exactly what it said that a man could put away his wife in Deuteronomy chapter 24 but remember that provision was only given in the mosaic light of the hardness of men's own hearts that's what makes us different than Yahweh God and he answered and said have you not read that he which made them at the beginning made them both male and female that's Genesis chapter 1 verse 27 not Genesis chapter 2 okay so Christ clearly said Israelites were created men and woman at the same time and said for this cause shall a man leave mother and father and cleave to his wife all of which are singular but what about this provision given of Moses Moses and the law he says in verse 8 Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your life pole not singular now you understand why God hates divorce but gave up her vision to do so why because not only is a preacher commanded to be married with children as per the Mosaic law in Deuteronomy chapter 21 through 23 and not only is it required in the New Testament as well but polygamy is outlawed and 100% provision the law says you could put away your wife but the provision is to put away lyza so you don't become a whore playing the harlot with many as we've covered today different hirelings remember Jesus Christ clearly said the hireling cares not for the block not one bit so today we only have time to cover the notes that I wasn't able to get to last Wednesday but we perfect God was married to the Israelites that he gave them a bill of divorcement we prove that the law said unless there is a death of the testator meaning the law itself that they continually went in adultery and we also learned that God divorced them as parousia Isaiah and Ezekiel for continual harlotry and going after strange flats no surprise there but the most important part of what we covered today is the fact that it is Jesus Christ who gave His life and did the work on the cross to free you from that very law that Pharisees back then and today will pervert they'll come in and they'll say well what is the law thing knowing full well what the law says and they'll come in and say well you don't have to be married with children right where's that nowhere within the scripture that is if you're going to preach so over and over again I will stand by blameless bishops I will stand by Micah and I'm actually looking forward to covering Revelation because I don't think half the people out there who go by my title have the brain capacity to even cover it or the loins enough to actually do it or the knowledge to actually pull it off so I actually hope that you will join me for that and I hope that what we cover today at least gives you a good overview on the fact that we are supposed to be the Bride of Christ and you can't be waiting for your bridegroom being Yahshua Messiah if you're in bed with the hora Babylon or with Satan as per the book of Revelation so come out from among them and be separate take a wipe from your own people and serve the God that is yours and until next time this is Pastor misser from Brooks Georgia and the covenant people's Church wishing you and your entire family great studies and war for Christ
