Marriage Re-Marriage

 We know Elohim did not divorce the house of Judah. why didn’t Elohim divorce them? So I ask how could Elohim break his own marriage law and have a son by a woman to whom he was not married? Some people have told me because Elohim can do anything. That is not true. Because Elohim can Not sin! He remained married to the house of Judah so that his son would be legitimate. But the marriage to the house of Judah did not continue forever. When Yahusha died on the stake the marriage to the house of Judah ended. That is partly what Romans chapter 7 is about. And the reason I choice this for the program today

Romans 7:1
7:1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
7:2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.
7:3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
7:4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of the Messiah; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto YHWH.
7:5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

When the house of Israel was divorced by Elohim and they went after other gods they could not go back to the one true Elohim because that would be an abomination as is taught in Deuteronomy 24:4. So when Yahushua came and died he released them from that law Deuteronomy 24:4 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before YHWH: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which YHWH thy Elohim giveth thee for an inheritance.

The Remarriage
The gospels are full of scriptures proclaiming the purpose of Yahusha. However Yahusha himself said it best in Matthew 15:24.

Matthew 15:24
"I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."

If you look at the Greek on the word lost and realize the family it belongs to you could properly read Matthew 15:24 as follows: "I was not sent except to the put away and punished sheep of the house of Israel."

Once Elohim had died through his earthly manifestation, Yahusha the Moshiach, the only thing left for the remarriage to take place was one additional promise about the bride becoming as a virgin once again.

2 Corinthians 11:2
For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Yahusha.

As you can see the love story continues. So if you have the law of Elohim written on your heart, how does one become a chaste virgin waiting for her bridegroom to return?

Romans 6:3
Or do you not know that as many of us as were immersed into the Moshiach Yahusha were immersed into His death?

4 Therefore we were buried with Him through immersion into death, that just as Yahusha was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Then don’t you think immersion, Mikveh or baptism is important. Now I want you to know there is much more to this. You know the parable of the 10 virgins, who by the way were all immersed believers since they were virgins, or what about the wedding feast.

The Gift
In Genesis 29 beginning at verse 18 Jacob agreed to serve Laban for seven years for his daughter Rachel. Have you thought about Elohim also paying a dowry for Israel? Turn to Matthew 13:44 lets read this parable.

Matthew 13:44
"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field."

The man here is Yahusha who paid all that he had, that was his life that He laid down, for the field, which is the whole world, Matthew 13:38, in order to receive his special treasure, which is Israel. Now there is one further gift.

Acts 2:38
"Then Peter said to them, 'Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Yahusha the Moshiach for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

When each person becomes a "bride in waiting" they receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Closing Remarks
This has not been about the House of Judah (the modern day Jews). But the house of Israel. Why because this love story is about the House of Israel not Judah.

Acts 1:6
Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, "Master, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?"

Abraham was promised a countless progeny (Genesis 12:3; 15:5);
2. This promise was given to Isaac (Genesis 26:2-5);
3. To Jacob (Genesis 28:3);
4. To Joseph (Genesis 48:3,4);
5. To Ephraim (Genesis 48:13-20);
6. Ephraim was Jacob's firstborn heir (Deuteronomy 21:17; 1 Chronicles 5:1,2; Ezekiel 37:19);
7. Ephraim's seed was to become "Multitude of Nations" meaning "a fullness of gentiles" (Genesis 48:19; Romans 11:25; Isaiah 8:14); the word fullness is also used in Psalm 24:1;
8. Israel was divided into Two Houses - Ephraim/Israel and Judah (1 Kings 1:11; 11:31-35; 12:15 - "the cause was from YHWH"; 12:24 "for this thing is from Me");
9. Ephraim was later sent into captivity in Assyria for their idolatry (2 Kings17:6-18,24; 1 Chronicles 5:25,26; 1 Kings 14:15);
10.Ephraim became "LoAmmi" - meaning "not a people" (Hosea 1:9) and was swallowed up among all nations. Thus they lost touch with their Israelite identity.
11.Israel is forever chosen to choose; they must choose to follow the Holy One of Israel (Deuteronomy 28:1-68; 30:19; Joshua 24:15 );
12.There is an eternal call on all descendants of Israel; the facts about one's biological heritage cannot be changed based on one's faith [or even a lack thereof] (Exodus 19:4-6; Deuteronomy 4:37; 7:6,8; 10:15; Jeremiah 31:37; 33:25,26; Romans 11:28,29);
13.Though scattered, like Judah, Ephraimites continue to be physical Israelites (Jeremiah 31:20; 2 Kings 17:23; Daniel 9:7; Ephesians 2:17; Hosea 5:3; 8:8; Amos 9:9; Jeremiah 31:20);
14.Ephraim has been "lost" to, or ignorant of, his Israelite heritage (Hosea 1:6; 3:4; 31:18,19);
15.As to Ezra's sacrifice for "all' Israel. "all" defines those present, and does not serve to prove that all biological Israelites were there (Ezra 8:25; 1 Kings 12:20);
16.Reunited Israel will be sinless, will not be uprooted from the Land, and Yahusha will reign over them (Isaiah 11:11-14; Jeremiah 3:14-18; 50:4,5,20; Zechariah 8:3,7,13; 9:13; 10:7,8,10; Hosea 11:10; Obadiah 1:18; Ezekiel 37:22-26; Isaiah 27:9;)
17.Ephraim and Judah are Yahuah's Two Chosen Families (Jeremiah 33 23-26);
18.The Chosen people of Israel are Yahuah's witnesses (Isaiah 43:8-13; 44:8);
19.Yahweh divided His witnesses into Two Houses (2 Chronicles 11:4; Revelation 11:3,4; Zechariah 4:11,14);
20.Messiah Yahusha is also called Israel (Isaiah 42:6,7; 49:1-6; Matthew 2:15);
21.Yahusha made His congregation, Ekklesia with the children of Israel
22.Yahusha has one flock and He is one with the Father; together They have one people (Matthew 2:6; 15:24; John 10:16, 27-30; 17:11, 20,21; Ezekiel 34:11-16);
23.In ancient Israel foreigners joined Israel by observing circumcision, Passover and sojourning; thereafter they were considered as natives of the Land (Leviticus 19:34; Numbers 9:14; 15:15,16; Deuteronomy 18: 15-19; Isaiah 56:3,6-8; Ezekiel 47:23);
