“And it came to be in those days when there was no sovereign in Yisra’el, that there was a certain Lewite sojourning on the further side of the mountains of Ephrayim. And he took for himself a concubine from Beyth Lehem in Yahudah. And his concubine committed whoring against him, and went away from to her father’s house at Beyth Lehem in Yahudah, and was there four new moons of days. And her husband arose and went after her, to speak to her heart and bring her back, having his servant and a couple of donkeys with him. And she brought him into her father’s house. And the father of the young woman saw him, and he was glad to meet him. And his father in law, the young woman’s father, took hold of him, and he dwelt with him three days. And they ate and drank and spent the nights there. And it came to be on the fourth day that they arose early in the morning. And he prepared to leave, but the young woman’s father said to his son in law, ‘refresh your heart with piece of bread, and afterwards go your way…” (Judges 19: 1-5)
There is plenty to talk about here, because there are misconceptions about divorce and adultery and all types of reasons why people split which are thought to be biblical but are not because the truth has been tainted. First, I would like to pay mention to the reasons why Yahuwah might allow a divorce in the first place. Many people claim adultery in the sense that someone married sleeps with another outside the marriage; as like in this instance. Also the word seems to back up that claim because Yahushua says that adultery is permissible in matters where adultery has transpired; this is truth but not in the way we think. We see here that the text relates an instance saying, “And his concubine committed whoring against him.” To soothe your mind, yes, a concubine is a wife and not a mistress as is taught at church. The difference, in this wife is that she has no dowry; or was not endowed by her betrothed which means that he has no money. In this instance, it is the man who supplies the means of support and it is the case that he being a ‘sojourner’ most likely had nothing to give her. Hence, the couple was poor as are many of us today in societies standards…not poor in spirit but in want of some things.
The text says that she “whored against him…” Hence, is the case with some of us as women who find it difficult to stay with a man who isn’t greatly endowed with material goods; meaning doesn’t have a six figure income, a large bank account or who doesn’t drive a nice car, or isn’t dressed as stylishly as some of these people we see at the local churches and most certainly like those who lead our flocks.
It is no wonder then that our marriages are in trouble. Look at what we are comparing our men to. It is the case that in real life, not dream life, that we must begin to take an honest look to see if this is fair.
Is the case that many leaders are purposely steering our women away from good hard working men?
The text says, “And her husband arose and went after her, to speak to her heart and bring her back.” I have to say that this is proof of love…how many men if that woman cheated would take her back? Men are not as tolerant as women in this area…and in those days when a woman “went a whoring” as this word speaks they were abandoned. Hence, is why Yahushua said, “Whoever puts away his wife he should give her a certificate of divorce lest you cause her to commit adultery.” (Matthew 5:31)
Look at this:
If a man takes a wife and shall marry her, then it shall be, if she finds no favour in his eyes because he has found a matter of uncoveredness in her, and he shall write her a certificate of divorce, and put it in her hand and send her out of his house and she became another man’s wife and he writes her a certificate of divorce or when the latter husband dies, then the former husband cannot take her back to be his wife after she has been defiled, for that would be an abomination to Yahuwah. And do not bring sin on the land which Yahuwah your Elohim is giving you for an inheritance. (Deuteronomy 24:1-4).
Ladies, this is an issue that many of us face. Not many of our men are well endowed with finances and work hard for what they get. We have been swayed and mesmorized with these messages of prosperity but Yahuwah is saying in this hour this is not the way. In fact, we have a word which speaks of the two walking together in agreement. We are greedy and lustful, some of us, spending money before it is made.
This is not about men who don’t try…this is about those who get up and make it happen every single day, about those who make an honest means to an end. We must let go of these fairy tale dreams and face the fact that Daddy loves him and the only way to be prosperous is to stay in his plan.
Good word. Praying for every marriage to be sustained Yah’s way. Hang in there.

I say what makes someone think that when God hates idol worshipers? Moreover, I don’t know that “the world” is a correct translation seemingly if we think about it, that is, if someone was so bold as to change Yahuwah and Elohim to God lord and Lord and the the name Yahushuah to lord then what makes us think that “the world” did not replace Israel.
Hear the truth said, “And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.Then came she and worshiped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not right to take the children’s bread, and cast it to dogs.And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Yahshuah answered and said unto her, O woman, great is your faith: be it unto you even as you will. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. ” (Matthew 15:24).
We missed it, it is not about the woman and her child, except to say that by her faith her child was healed. There is no association needed there. Many people confuse this to mean that Yahshuah came for everyone. However, it is the case that he says that he “came for the lost sheep of Israel.”
This indicates that it is by grace that Israel is saved…we can wish for salvation, we can think salvation, we can play saved, look saved, act saved and all else but this message is clear that Yahuwah came to save Israel.
However, if you have faith as the woman did…you can be made whole TOO!
There is not another way….he is the narrow gate. More to the point. Israel is His chosen. That’s the message of hope for True Israel.
I still say that it is Israel who is saved by grace…for Yahuwah so loved Israel that he sent his son….
In 1 Corinthians Paul tells the church that they are responsible for “judging” the saints who are in fellowship with other believers and in short tells them that it is Yahuwah who judges the world…why would God send his Son for the world he is going to judge?
Take a look:
“Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers. Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? ” (1 Corinthians 6:1-11)
Stop right there! This is not about somebody suing you, look deeper.
Hence, we see here that Paul says that so called saints should not run to the “world system” to solve their problems when they can handle them amongst themselves. Why would Yahuwah then be concerned for “the world?” He does not love “the world” which is full of idolatry. If we look at it….it took Him sending Yahshuah to save us for him to even acknowledge us, Israel because we fell to idol worship. God doesn’t see us when we are not walking in righteousness, meaning honoring the covenant and the commandments. God sent his son for Israel whom he calls and still calls an ADULTEROUS NATION, NOT THE WORLD.
Judgement means he has turned his back and ready to administer punishment ON THE WORLD. Hence, what we see here is people trying to get in living and acting any kind of way. It doesn’t work like that. No one comes to the Father except through the Son and that means something has got to change. HE CAME FOR THE LOST SHEEP OF ISRAEL. YOU ARE SAVED BY GRACE.
See, the word says, “Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Yahshuah, and by the Spirit of our Elohim.”

Yahweh is calling us back. Come from among them, that is the world of idol worship.
