I would encourage you to further seek professional counseling from a Liscensed Marriage and Family Therapist. There are some who are Christians and can be of support and guidance long-term. My prayers are for the Lord to give you spiritual discernment to know what HE wants you to do beyond forgiveness.
I also pray that you get tested for AIDS and STD's--as your wife has engaged in sexual relations outside of the marriage and has returned to you several times.
Don't give up. Remember prophet Hosea.
Duet. 24:1 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give [it] in her hand, and send her out of his house.
24:2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's [wife].
24:3 And [if] the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth [it] in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her [to be] his wife;
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 the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the LORD thy God giveth thee [for] an inheritance.
I would say move on.
You have to be strong, and be able to provide, and project some kind of real power, so you can impress a decent gal. Let this one go, and get over it. She's an adulteress. She might have been stoned to death.
Well, if you already know what to do, then why come here? And if it's an abomination to God, then it is an abomination to God's people. I'm sure I'm not the only one sickened by the report of some woman who keeps going back and forth between two men. You may as well all move in together if you're going to keep sharing. But don't try to bring this evil upon God's people. That's the worst thing you can do.
Hebrews 10:31 [It is] a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Rush...he's coming for agreement in Prayer and for support from other Christians. That IS what we are supposed to be here for!
Mark 3:28 “Truly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the children of man, and whatever blasphemies they utter, (29) but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”
Rush, your theology of judgement and accusation is so wrong. Jon never sent his wife away. Instead of yelling "abomination!" you might want to study Jesus' teaching on forgiveness.
I have to agree...the scripture that was used does not apply to your situation. :)
are you sure it's not the feeling of loneliness that wants her to come back to you ..
I agree with cindy you need to discuss this with a pastor someone that can look at the situation without emotional involvement....
and ideas can be put into you head by the Spirit and by other spirits (demons) as well
see a pastor brother
