All marriages are worldly marriages, but not all worldly marriages are spiritual marriages. So, we will talk about spiritual marriages and worldly marriages.
Some worldly married couples are not aware their marriage is not a spiritual marriage, or they just do not care. After all, you can have a decent worldly marriage (family) and not be bound by God’s marriage laws and rules.
Let’s take a closer look at a spiritual marriage, in such marriages both partners are already, or in the process of becoming true followers of Jesus, both partners talked to Jesus about their future spouses, and both partners already know that adultery and/or fornication can and will destroy their spiritual marriage.
God is the author of spiritual marriages, He planed them, He created them, and He blessed them. All spiritual marriages have a special blessing from God, this blessing soothes and helps keep couples closer together. This is the type of marriage God said would not be destroyed it was designed to last until death. God is very serious about spiritual marriages, if you think I am lying just disobey the adultery and/or fornication laws and you will see your loving spiritual marriage turn into a worldly marriage.
Not everyone really knows what actually happens when you are involved in sexual intercourse. This applies to all humans, but worldly married people will fare much better in such situations because God is not personally involved in their marriages. When you and your spouse first got married you had sexual intercourse with each other, and the two of you became one flesh although you two still have separate spirits.
A spiritual marriage was constructed by God to only accommodate two people and their spirits, now if one spouse has voluntary sexual intercourse with someone other than their spouse. The third person spirit follows the cheating spouse home, and now you have a three-spirited marriage, which God does not allow in spiritual marriages.
Almost any kind of unpleasant situation can cause a divorce in a worldly marriage, but God protects spiritual marriages from such disasters. If you obey God’s laws, there is nothing on this earth that can cause a spiritual divorce. And that is the way God planned it from the beginning.
God makes rules and laws that He cannot change even if he wanted to. I am sure he would if he could change some of his rules and laws because some of us humans are unable to obey them all. I guess that is why God gave us a redeemer because we really need one.
If you and your spouse started out with a spiritual marriage and one or both of you had voluntary outside sexual intercourse, then you are no longer spiritually married, and you must admit it. You do not have to get a worldly divorce if you plan on still living together and especially if you have young children, plus Jesus will be with you even if you did destroy your spiritual marriage. You do not have to have a spiritual marriage in order to go to heaven.
If you are involved in a spiritual marriage and you are contemplating on having a voluntary outside sexual intercourse, go to Jesus in prayer tell him about your sinful desires he will help you save your spiritual marriage, but it was your unbelieving mind and your deceitful heart that got you into this mess in the first place. A spiritual marriage can be difficult for a lukewarm believer.
When we mess things up such as destroying a spiritual marriage or some other undesirable things that we do, Jesus will always be there to help us along the way, but we cannot keep doing these undesirable things, because Jesus may walk away from us.
