God’s word says that He hates divorce.

“For the Lord God of Israel says that he hates divorce, for it covers one’s garment with violence…”  Mal.2:16

Divorce breaks the sacred vows and commitment between two people and God.

Two people are madly in love and want to spend the rest of their lives together.

They purchase new furniture for their place and make it comfortable.

Then a few years later they hate each other and want to destroy each other.

They start ruining their furniture and breaking kitchenware along with any equipment.

What happened?

In verse 16 we see the answer to that question.

A spirit of violence enters into the union of marriage.

I have seen this happen over and over again.

Divorce is a funeral that never ends.

Divorce births a spirit of violence.

You can’t believe it is the same couple that was so in love.

Nothing justifies violence towards your spouse.

In Mal.2:11  a marriage is referred to as a “Holy Institution”.

Remember, anything “Holy” means that it is “set apart.”

Anything “set apart” will be attacked by the enemy.

The enemy does not want the kingdom of God expanded or blessed.

Marriage is referred to as an “divine” establishment.

In verse 15 we see why the enemy doesn’t want our marriages united.

But why?

“But did He not make them one?  Having a remnant of the Spirit?  And why one?  He seeks Godly offspring.  Therefore take heed to your spirit…”

That is the answer.

Why did God create marriage?  BINGO!!

He wants godly offspring!

God desires that we have children, raise them godly, and multiply the world.

When we divorce, we destroy each other, our children and our loved ones.

Malachi 2:15 says to take heed to your spirit.

In other wards, pay attention to your “stinking attitude.”

Maybe you don’t care about your marriage but God does.

He has an investment in it.

Start protecting God’s investment today.

He said to be fruitful and multiply.



NOTE:  Daily there is a new post to make your marriage a success.

    Sometimes it seems like it would be easier to just “walk away.” Thanks for always reminding us of God’s Word has to say about it and how he feels about it and what it brings about. I do NOT want to put on violence and bring it into my home or upon my family. Thanks for always speaking the truth of God’s Word, it always puts my feet back on solid ground. Love you!

      Hi Cathy! Thank you for your comment. To do things God’s way almost always seems like the hard way. It is a matter of putting our trust in God to bring an outcome that glorifies him. We are never more like Jesus then when we allow His “divine” forgiving power into our lives. No one but Jesus gets the glory when we forgive! You are a living epistle!
