Don’t Frolic With Married Folks

What do you mean, Pastor?
I received a phone call from a lady a few years ago. On the phone, she began to bemoan God’s failure to answer her prayers for a suitor and marriage. She went on and on about how she sought God’s face but received no response. She stated that she had been on a seven-day fast even as we spoke, with no success.

Then she threw in a sentence that exposed her folly and ignorance.
“Even this man I’m with now hasn’t said anything about marriage!” she exclaimed.

“Which man?” I inquired, curious.
“I’m in his house now, and he’s just sleeping with me; he hasn’t said anything about the wedding!” she explained.

Wow! She is fasting and praying, and yet she is sleeping with a married man!
God will not be mocked!
That is nothing but adultery! God frowns upon it!

Don’t Frolic With Married Folks

God expects you to dedicate your life to Him.
You can’t locate the correct person if you’ve already found the wrong one.
You cannot consistently pray for God’s guidance while engaging in sexual sin.

Rom 6:14 (KJV) For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

See it in another way:

Rom 6:14 (TPT) Remember this: sin will not conquer you, for God already has! You are not governed by law but governed by the reign of the grace of God.

Consider how the Good News Bible puts it:

Rom 6:14 (GNB) Sin must not be your master; for you do not live under law but under God’s grace.

Let me simply mention two things concerning sexual offenses, particularly adultery.

  1. An adulterous affair is a form of cheating on your destiny.

Why is this the case? It is a clear breach of God’s values, and as a result, you do not have God’s backing and favor in your life. It’s not worthwhile. Why would you deprive another person of something that is truly theirs while hoping for the best for yourself?

  1. Adultery is a bad idea.

That was said by God, not me. I’m simply repeating what God stated.

But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul. (Proverbs 6:32 KJV)

This is also true for the lady in question.
Now look at that in Message translation because the KJV appears to be really nice there.

Adultery is a brainless act, soul–destroying, self–destructive; (Proverbs 6:32 Message)

Brainless! That is not good, but it is the truth!

The passage is saying that if we can think profoundly, we would not engage in adultery for everything in this world.

We can see the connotation of adultery right there.

Expect a bloody nose, a black eye, and a reputation ruined for good. For jealousy detonates rage in a cheated husband; wild for revenge, he won’t make allowances (Proverbs 6:33-34 Message)

The next time someone tries to convince you into making a compromise, tell them that’s a bad idea.

As a single, avoid overly pleasant married folks because there is usually an objective behind all the presents you are given. Intention manifests and becomes a reality through time.

God bless you.
