The Devil IS an Advocate

 

 

Devotional done by Sean from standforyourmarriage.org

 

 

Four years ago today, my wife and I said our vows and promises to each other before God on a beautiful summers morning.

 

Last night during a long quiet time with our Heavenly Father, a secret was revealed.

 

When we stand at our wedding days, it is the day that Gods Glory is able to shine in His joining of 2 to become 1.

There is a minister who intercedes the union and the couples declare their Love for each other before God.

 

The husband and the wife make promises to each other and vow before God

 

Num 30:2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.

 

Deu 23:21 When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy God, thou shalt not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee.

 

Ecc 5:4 When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. 
Ecc 5:5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. 
Ecc 5:6 Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?

 

The newly weds, usually completely ignorant, enjoy the pleasure of the now one flesh. Unfortunately we are generally unaware that there is an enemy lurking to steal, destroy and murder the new creation.

 

Time continues and whilst still in ignorance, the enemy capitalizes on that ignorance by placing deception in every aspect that he can get a hold on in marriages.

To the point whereby the spirit of divorce enters the heart and mind of the marriage. From there, generally a court summons is issued and either contested or a consent is reached.

 

Now here is the secret irony:

 

After making promises and vows before God on the wedding day, the plaintiff appears in court. The baillif calls the plaintiff to the stand and the plaintiff is required to place their right hand upon a bible, and to swear and promise to the court and again before God to tell the truth and the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

 

So with all that truth being told and the Word of God is Truth

 

and Jesus said in John 17:17 that God's WORD is truth.

Griffin Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

So how then can the plaintiff stand in court and speak Gods Word?And how can a judge make a judgement on Gods word as Gods word is Perfect?

 

Now in this light we are very vulnerable as the enemy now as a legal strong hold over the marriage. As a promise before God was made at the creation of the union and a promise is made at the destruction of the union all before God (And the enemy), Satan has a legitimate right to advocate that he can try destroy the marriage. 

God cannot contradict himself and as it is written in Mal 2:16 " He hates Divorce"

The enemy can lay claim to this as the plaintiff has unwittingly turned their back to God and His protection by breaking vows and laying claim to two false promises before God Almighty.

 

The good news for us left Standing is that we still sanctify our prodigals with our belief and prayers. They are saved from the pit through our Love of our Lord and Heavenly Father.

 

For with Him nothing is impossible or irretrievable!!

 

AND What He has Joined!! 

 

Mark 10:9 "What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."

 

I Urge every one STANDING to equip oneself with as much knowledge of the enemy and his tactics. They never change because he cannot create, therefore his methods remain the same. With the Blood of Christ we are able to cleanse ourselves and our marriages.There are legal aspects in spiritual too, and the devil is an advocate. BUT Jesus Christ is the JUDGE!! 

 

And that is very good news for us.

 

Love and Blessings

Stander Sean
