The 6th and 7th commandments say; thou shall not murder and thou shall not commit adultery. But sinners have escape root because the emphasis is on physical termination of lives with gun or any dangerous weapon, whilst judgement can only be meted out on anyone caught in the unholy act of infidelity. Our Lord’s teachings on the Mount uncover the root of all murder and how many have committed murder from their heart without gun and weapons.

MURDER

Christ teaching on this subject uncover how murder are being committed secretly in the heart with anger which lead to hatred, deception, bitterness and pronouncement of negative words (Matthew 5:22). Devil sows seed of anger in the heart; it grows to bear the fruit of hatred, deception, bitterness and evil words to destroy life. For this reason, the psalmist wrote: create in me a pure heart oh Lord and renew the right spirit within me (Psalm 51:10) Jesus commands: settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court (Matthew 5:25) the bible say: Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. (Eph. 4:31) Anger is a root not symptom, don’t allow it to have root in your heart, else you may commit murder.

ADULTERY

Adultery is the act of sexual immorality committed by married person outside of the marriage bond. Again, the law can only judge anyone physically caught in the act, but the Kingdom teaching on this subject on the Mount by Jesus Christ unveil the root of this unholy act from the heart. The greatest weapon often use by devil to kill and to destroy is sexual immorality, practitioners walk themselves into the burning sulphur (1 Corinth. 6:9; Gal. 5:19; Rev. 21:8) The temptation begins from seeing, then looking, then thinking, then smelling and finally tasting to establish sin of adultery. Discard it at the point of seeing before it penetrates your heart. Take a flight from this sin its deadly.

DIVORCE

Divorce is the annulment of marriage, a reversal of wedding vow and abortion of God’s will for one-flesh-union. A pertinent question needs to be answered here. Can the two who are joined together in Holy Matrimony truly divorce? ‘NO’ what has simply taken place in the lives of divorced couple was a separation of the two bodies whilst their souls and spirits remain intact and inseparable but in serious anger, hatred and bitterness against each other and mostly seeking to eliminate or subdue each other in their heart. If unchecked, this could lead to generational curses for the family because the evil that man sowed grow to bear fruits. God intends marriage commitments to be kept for life. Anything less falls short of divine purpose (Matthew 19:3-3-9) what then God has joined together, let no man put asunder. (Matt. 19:6).ou


Let your marriage become an Altar where sacrifices of Love, Truth and Forgiveness are laid daily to worship God and to provide sweet aroma to provoke God to release His covenant with you and your generation.
