Rabbinic Judaism and Divorce- "They will not find a clear halachah..." (b.Shab. 138b)



Rabbinic Judaism and Divorce
"They will not find a clear halachah..." (b.Shab. 138b)
By
James Scott Trimm



In a recent blog I wrote about how Yeshua, the Talmud and the Ancient Nazarene Commentary on Isaiah all interpret Isaiah 29 as a prophecy of an apostasy of the house of Judah that would result in Judah producing errant halacha.  As the Talmud says “They will not find a clear halachah...” (b.Shab. 138b)

In aanother recent blog I gave an example of this by comparing the Rabbinic halacha concerning Sabbath to the Nazarene halacha.  The Rabbinic halacha allows the Sabbath to be loosed only if a human life is potentially in danger (m.Yoma 8:6).  The Mishnah goes so far as to say that a broken bone or dislocated joint should not be reset on the Sabbath ((m.Shabbat 22:6).  By contrast Nazarene halacah looses the Sabbath for any act of CHESED (mercy or loving kindness) even if no human life is in danger.

In this blog I want to show that when contrasted with Nazarene halacha, the Rabbinic halacha concerning divorce is unconscionable.  Under Rabbinic Halacha, a man can divorce a woman for any reason or even for no reason at all. The Talmud specifically says that a man can divorce a woman because she spoiled his dinner or simply because he finds another woman more attractive.  As we read in the Mishnah:

The House of Shamai say,
"A man should divorce his wife only because he has found grounds for it in unchastity, since it is said, "Because he has found in her an unclean matter in anything (Dt. 24:1)"
And the House of Hillel say,
"Even if she spoiled his dish, since it is said, "Because he has found in her an unclean matter in anything (Dt. 24:1)"
Rabbi Akiba says,
"Even if he found someone else prettier than she, since it is said, "And it shall be if she find no favor in his eyes (Dt. 24:1)"
(m.Gittin 9:10)

The Rabbinic Halacha follows the House of Hillel and also the position of Rabbi Akiva. Moreover Rabbinic halacha requires divorce in some circumstances: when the wife commits a sexual transgression, a man must divorce her, even if he is inclined to forgive her.  The Talmud says of the woman who has acted unchastely “Such a one it is a religious duty to divorce, as it says, because he hath found some unseemly thing in her.” (b.Gittin 90b)

The Pharisees were divided on the issue of divorce. The House of Shammai allowed divorce only in the case of an “unclean matter” while the House of Hillel allowed divorce even if the wife only spoiled a dish, and Akiva stretched this to allow a man to divorce his wife because he found a prettier one (m.Gittin 9:10)

The Essenes said the Pharisees had fallen into a trap of Belial saying:

They are caught in…Fornication, by taking two wives
in their lifetime although the Principle of Creation (Yesod HaBriah)
is “male and female He Created them” (Gen. 1:27) and those who
entered the ark “went into the ark two by two” (Gen. 7:9). Concerning
the Leaders it is written “he shall not multiply wives to himself” (Dt. 17:17)
(Damascus Document 4,20-5,2)

The Essenes were accusing the Pharisees of effectively practicing polygamy in allowing divorce so easily, and in doing so, violating the Yesod HaBriah.

No doubt Messiah is citing Yesod HaBriah (The Principle of Creation) when he has the following halachic debate with a group of Pharisees:

19:3 And the P’rushim approached him, and tempted him, saying, “Is it right for a man to put away his wife for every cause?”
19:4 And he answered and said to them: "Have you not read that he who made man the beginning, 'made them male and female' (Gen. 1:27)
19:5 And said, 'Wherefore shall a man shall leave his father and his mother, and cleave to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh' (Gen. 2:24)
19:6 And now then, they are no more two but one flesh only. What therefore Elohim has joined together man cannot separate."
19:7 But they said, "And why then did Moshe then command to give a bill of divorcement, and to put her away
if she was not pleasing in his sight?” (Deut. 24:1, 3)
19:8 And he answered them and said, "Because Moshe on account of the hardness of your hearts, allowed you to put away your wives, but from the beginning it was not so.
19:9 And I tell you, every man that has put away, or shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and takes another, commits adultery. And whoever takes the divorced also commits adultery.
(Mt. 19:3-9)

Yeshua sides with the Essenes and with the House of Shammai Pharisees on this issue.  A man may only divorce his wife for Z’NOT (wandering, fornication) in keeping with the understanding that “unclean matter” in Deut. 24 must refer to uncastity and not just any matter at all.  Moreover Yeshua argues (in agreement with the Essenes) that divorce is not what YHWH desires, because it runs contrary to the principle that “male and female” are made one by YHWH through marriage.

The Rabbinic halacha that allows a man to divorce his wife for any trivial reason such as spoiling dinner, or even for any reason which is no fault of her own, such as he found a prettier girl, and also requires a man to divorce an wife who has made some sexual indiscretion, even if he is inclined to forgive her and remain married, is unconscionable.   It is a perfect example of the words "They will not find a clear halachah..." (b.Shab. 138b) and of the apostasy of Judah prophesied of in Isaiah 29.  The Nazarene halacha as taught by Yeshua is much superior.

I wonder what is when it is the other way round, and a woman wants to divorce a man for the reason of abusing her. What is the rabbinic "halacha', (if there is any), or is their interpretation in such a case & how decides Natsari halacha in this kind of issue

Comment by J. on July 13, 2016 at 12:52pm

As far as I know, only a court can help her. They can decide to put pressure on the man to divorce his wife or force a man to divorce his wife. The latter is uncommon, so women today are quite vulnerable. There was a revolutionary  case some time ago, in which a court divorced a woman from her husband that was in coma for several years.They harvested a lot of criticism from orthodox rabbis.
I am not sure what Yeshua's halachah on this would be, but I guess the same in concept. Maybe the court would be granted different approaches? Would like to know this also, good question!

Comment by J. on July 13, 2016 at 5:02pm

The problem is that "A just cause divorce is allowed for women too." is generally not recognized as contained within Scripture. However just it may seem that a woman divorce a man, as far as I know. Biblically only a man can divorce a woman, not the other way around. That's why a court will have to intervene in serious cases.

(By the way, the Talmud defines some standard cases in which a request for divorce is considered legitimate, one of them is when her husband has a bad breath or has a profession that comes with a horrible smell, e.g. tanner!)

Comment by Mikha'ELa on July 13, 2016 at 5:28pm

Thank you all for trying to answer my question. But really, if a woman can't divorce the husband at all , that leaves the woman with "paper-husband/marriage because if she doesn't separate from him, she will be found dead very soon. This is very tragicallly and leaves the woman in a lifelong dangerous position even if she separates, she is still in ways in  the husband's grep! This is what I don't get how Yah's word says how to deal with such or just not deal with it at all because only the man has the right to divorce? makes little sense to me.

Comment by Mikha'ELa on July 13, 2016 at 9:40pm

Tamar, who does that and excommunicate her and from what ?  Nowadays there are restraining orders, sentenced by court; what you mean? and where is that written down in Torah what tell; if you state things like this you got to at least mention the scripture quotation. Thanks.

Divorce in the Torah

1 John 4:8

Whoever does not love does not know Yah, because Yah is love.

I have seen many Torah commentaries on the issue of divorce. [no judgement intended at all]

I have not yet seen a commentary on the foundational Principle of Love in relation to marriage and divorce and its foundational impact on these two, the positive and the negative respectively.

It is established without argument that Yah demonstrates over and over that He obeys his own Torah to the letter and according to what He disseminated to His people through Moshe in Torah. More specifically in regards to love, marriage, divorce, death-forgiveness & covenant reestablishment-renewal and eventually remarriage. 

The Torah is as Pearl of Great Price, wisdom with understanding, only using them both together both will lead to knowledge. Such was the case with Betzalel [in the shadow of El'] the architect who was given both to develop the knowledge to build the Ark of the Covenant, mercy seat and all related furniture for the wilderness tabernacle.  Shlomo [peaceful] who asked for both wisdom and understanding used them to be the architect of the Beit HaMikdash  [set appart place] with all the multidimensional depth-meaning in relation to the work of Mashiach Yahushua regarding His Love and redemption of mankind through His Life, death and ressurection.

To properly discern the profound message and its meaning regarding marriage and divorce we will need to see clearly the behavior of Yah in His marriage, divorce and remarriage to Yahudah-Israel and what role does LOVE play in each case. This can only be accomplished and understood though wisdom and understanding to frame the context of Yah’s message, Blessed be He !

Without love at the beginning and at the end; as book holders; marriage in its true context cannot exist and a divorce MUST take place because the marriage DOES NOT meet Yah’s criteria.

If love is lacking the man or the woman must let the other person go because of unbelief, evidenced by the lack of the related works of love that the marriage requires to be true. When love is lacking in a marriage, it is nulled, void; without value just as faith without works is DEAD.

In Torah, death nulls a marriage; just as Mashiach Yahushua divorced Israel when he died; then the plan took depth and meaning as He re-marry Her through a renewed Brit Chadasha’ which is based on a better covenant through the pure evidence of His LOVE, by giving His life for His wife, then, through this LOVE, she could trully fall in love again in emunah [faith] with Him; He wanted and needed to PROVE how much He does love her/us. 

This true love is the only way satan can be defeated, if you or I vacilate in our love for Yah, satan will have your soul once you turn away Yah's perfect gift of life. 

what manner of love is that? The pure essence of love. ONLY Mashiach Yahushua can do that, His marriage to Israel and his pure love cannot be duplicated; what are we to do, REJOICE in his love for while we were still sinners, He died for the unbeliever and He obtained Eternal Redemption for us! [Hebrews 9].

If one is EVER to discuss marriage and divorce, LOVE must be the essence of that discussion in context of Yah’s attitude and behavior to it; read this in His Torah to find ourselves approved.

If Love is non-existant in a marriage, you dont have to get divorced, you ALREADY are; the decree of divorce [paper] is just evidence of the symptom of what is lacking. 

Once you take very seriously and with a true contrite ruach seek with all your heart His wisdom and understanding, then you shall understand the depths of His secret messages embedded in Torah to be found as a Pearl of Great Price, cherish them and value them much and they shall lead you in paths of righteousness.

1 The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel:

2 To know wisdom and instruction,

    to understand words of insight,

3 to receive instruction in wise dealing,

    in righteousness, justice, and equity;

4 to give prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the youth—

5 Let the wise hear and increase in learning,

    and the one who understands obtain guidance,

6 to understand a proverb and a saying,

    the words of the wise and their riddles.

7 The fear of the Yah is the beginning of knowledge;

    fools despise wisdom and instruction.



1Hear, O sons, the instruction of a father,
            And give attention that you may gain understanding,

      2For I give you sound teaching;
            Do not abandon my instruction.

      3When I was a son to my father,
            Tender and the only son in the sight of my mother,

      4Then he taught me and said to me,
            “Let your heart hold fast my words;
            Keep my commandments and live;

      5Acquire wisdom! Acquire understanding!
            Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth.

      6“Do not forsake HER, and SHE [Ruach] will guard you;
            Love Ruach and She will watch over you. [ Ruach our Mother; emphasis mine]

      7“The beginning of wisdom is: Acquire wisdom;
            And with all your acquiring, get understanding.

      8“Prize her, and she will exalt you;
            She will honor you if you embrace her.

      9“She will place on your head a garland of grace;
            She will present you with a crown of beauty.”

      10Hear, my son, and accept my sayings
            And the years of your life will be many.

      11I have directed you in the way of wisdom;
            I have led you in upright paths.

      12When you walk, your steps will not be impeded;
            And if you run, you will not stumble.

      13Take hold of instruction; do not let go.
            
Guard Her, for She is your life.

      14Do not enter the path of the wicked
            And do not proceed in the way of evil men.

      15Avoid it, do not pass by it;
            Turn away from it and pass on.

      16For they cannot sleep unless they do evil;
            And they are robbed of sleep unless they make someone stumble.

      17For they eat the bread of wickedness
            And drink the wine of violence.

      18But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
            
That shines brighter and brighter until the full day.

      19The way of the wicked is like darkness;
            They do not know over what they stumble.

      20My son, give attention to my words;
            Incline your ear to my sayings.

      21Do not let them depart from your sight;
            Keep them in the midst of your heart.

      22For they are life to those who find them
            And health to all their body.

      23Watch over your heart with all diligence,
            For from it flow the springs of life.

      24Put away from you a deceitful mouth
            And put devious speech far from you.

      25Let your eyes look directly ahead
            And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you.

      26Watch the path of your feet
            And all your ways will be established.

      27Do not turn to the right nor to the left;
            Turn your foot from evil.

The rest on marriage and divorce is very simply laid out in Torah; it will NOT be understood UNLESS you plug in LOVE into the equation. It is my pleasure to allow Torah to do this work, pay attention to his Words, use wisdom and understanding and you will get knowledge then treasure all !. There is no marriage or divorce in the kingdom of Heaven in regards to mankind; it is a subject that Yah has begun and He will finish perfectly.

 

15 But if the unbeliever leaves, let it be so. The brother or the sister is not bound in such circumstances; Yah has called us to live in peace.

8 Whoever does not love does not know Yah, because Yah is love. 1 John 4:8

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 LOVE is patient and kind; LOVE does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. LOVE bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. LOVE never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

John 3:16  For Yah so loved the world,that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Romans 5:8 but Yah shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Yahushua died for us.

Romans 8:37-39  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us [Yah’s marriage covenant-Brit Chadasha] from the love of Yah in Yahushua Ha Mashiach our King.

Matthew 5:43-48  You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, [Halacha] Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven.

1 John 4:7  Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from Yah, and whoever loves has been born of Yah and knows Yah

Romans 13:8  Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
Yahushua  answered him,  “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my F...

Song of Solomon 8:6-7  Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of Yah. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised.

Ephesians 4:2-3 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Ruach in the bond of peace.

Philippians 2:2  complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.

1 John 3:18 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

Psalm 23:5-6  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of Yah forever.

Psalm 31:16 Make your face shine on your servant; save me in your steadfast love!

Psalm 63:3 Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.

Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.

Proverbs 17:17  A friend loves at all times,

 

With Loving Kindness

Comment by Mikha'ELa on July 15, 2016 at 3:49am

Thank you Yosef, you help me a lot with your comment! and you others too! There is however another question I have now as you mention 15 But if the unbeliever leaves, let it be so. The brother or the sister is not bound in such circumstances; Yah has called us to live in peace."

It is the woman who left him (finally was able to do that) BUT it is also she who is the believer!  Does that mean the believer may not leave? When she was living with him together she was not allowed to practice her faith and if she dared he got violent to her. It is only by the protection and  grace of Yah that she could mange it finally, after have been running away so many times, to save her own skin and to stay away for good. She separated him, but it is not a legally separation by court. The  court established a restraining order, which exists still . 

I loved to hear from you Yosef about the comparison with the divorce the father has done and divorced Israel and that by His son Israel will be remarried. For this is,  as I understand, the same dilemma of the  mentioned  DV situation as well, same time it hinders also to take divorce out. But that is wrong I understand now better, and I believe that too,for if I am free of the husband  by divorce, it would not be a hinder to remarry in case the Father would lead that so and bring us together again, but the chances are very  little, for the father would not confirm  to be together, as long not also the divorced husband would go in Yah's ways, what the woman already does. As far it was, there was and still is  love from side of the woman but not from the abusive husband. But who knows if that ever will change, because first the evil behavor  needs to turn into goodness, what only Yah can accomplish in that person. I wouldn't endanger that neither rec. to wait for that   Is that right? In regard to the danger of to connect to the person again in good faith, actually to divorce is the better advise, right?. What the father makes then of this or not, only time will show. I hope I understood it now right, as also others of you are telling me divorce is permitted> actually I also want to let you know all it is I who has waited that long because I don't want to make a mistake ..but it's funny as longer I wait as more it will be a mistake!  Thank you for helping out in untangling for me the dilemma so I know what to do.  love ya all , my family! p.s: I have not my focus onto to be remarried only if he would start to follow in Yah's ways and become a believer as you and me, but I would love to see him saved and healed of his hatred., what not had to do much with me but was turned towards me because I was there. Please, if you like pray for him, his name is Paul and he is a Jew. I do pray for him too.

Thank you Tamar for once more pointing this out. Shabbat Shalom to you all :)

Comment by Yosef on July 16, 2016 at 10:08pm

Hi MiKha'Ela, 

RE: Thank you Yosef, you help me a lot with your comment! and you others too! There is however another question I have now as you mention 15 But if the unbeliever leaves, let it be so. The brother or the sister is not bound in such circumstances; Yah has called us to live in peace."

Hi MiKha'Ela, I noticed 7 questions with comments:they are all profound, they needed consulting with Yah, here is MY understanding

You

1: It is the woman who left him (finally was able to do that) BUT it is also she who is the believer! 

Yosef

1:1 Was Yah, He [Ruach, She] the 'believer' that let he/she Y’israEl go? [Gender does not matter in the spiritual dimension]. One does not necesarily have to leave when not participating in a relationhsip; one can be cast out: "But if you turn away and forsake My statutes and My commandments which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods and worship them, then I will UPROOT YOU from My land which I have given you, and this house which I have consecrated for My name I will cast out of My sight and I will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples.

You

2:   Does that mean the believer may not leave? When she was living with him together she was not allowed to practice her faith.

Yosef

2:1

This sounds like the abusive symptoms may be due to lack of Shalom in the relationship from the abusive partner, LOVE is in question, the relationship maybe affected by power and control issues from the abusive partner; this may also be related to a mental health problem related to TRUST- the foundational principle in Torah for LOVE seems lacking. The abusive partner possibly, or obviously may have an unresolved issue [s] from the past, this might have to do with what might have happened in childhood [such as lack of nurturing, bonding or love; such us past child abuse history, sexual abuse, past verbal, physical or emotional abuse or all] or IN later stages of development or even later in adolescence or even early adulthood; there may be possible past failed relationships/not necessarily marriages and trust issues could possibly developed from these. These abusive symptoms could be highly related to –TRUST- issues. In general terms these can be manifested by the abusive person as insecurities, thinking errors, false beliefs etc. inability to LOVE AND TRUST.

You

3: and if she dared he got violent to her. It is only by the protection and grace of Yah that she could manage it finally, after have been running away so many times, to save her own skin and to stay away for good. She separated him, but it is not a legally separation by court. The court established a restraining order, which exists still. 

Yosef

3:1 IN TORAH, the lack of LOVE and idol worshiping [includes self-worshipers] these are grounds for divorce as our Supreme RODEL MODEL Yah our Father, Yah our Redeemer Yahushua shows us in Torah.

25 ‘they exchanged the truth of Yah for a lie, and worshiped and served creatures rather than the Creator who is forever worthy of our praise Selah!

1But understand this: In the last days terrible times will come. 

2 For men will be LOVERS OF THEMSELVES, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, ABUSIVE, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,

3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, WITHOUT LOVE OF GOOD, 

4 traitorous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Yah, 

5 having a FORM of SET-APPARTNESS but denying its power. Turn away from such as these!

8Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moshe, so also these men oppose the truth. They are depraved in mind and disqualified from the faith. 9But they will not advance much further. For just like jannes and “Jambres”, [“he who opposes”] their folly will be plain to everyone.

 

You

4: But who knows if that ever will change, because first the evil behavior needs to turn into goodness, what only Yah can accomplish in that person. I wouldn't endanger that neither rec. to wait for that. Is that right?

Yosef

4:1 Yes, it is right, but it might not change; the commandment from Yah to us is to be happy, have trust, shalom, joy, be happy; in marriage especially.  

that is why the 40 days [40 years for Y’Israel] of T’shuvah [shoov=to return] need to take place before going before our Heavenly Father through Yahushua Ha Maschiach; before Yom Kippur, just imagine if we all take those days for their true meaning and purpose before going to Yahushua-to our Father Avinu Shebashamayim for forgiveness. selah!

Any person can “shoov” ‘to return’ at any time; this providing their souls have not been lost by openly, sequentially; well informed and still rejecting the great gift of Life; Yahushua. This does not apply when this is done when one is in ignorance or under a veil or blindness placed by Yah for a purpose.

To return/repent means

A: to go back to the time in place [s] when the offense was done, B: acknowledge the evil, all the facts related to the wrong doing and C: make a serious attempt to repair it and restitute or replace it with same or greater value with D: a contrite heart; guided by true LOVE to that person [Or Yah] “Turn your foot from evil [proverbs] means redirect your leading foot; back to the straight path, to righteousness an Yah will bless. It will always be the opposite direction from evil, turn, means turn your back and put distance from evil through good. But this can only happen after A,B,C, D at least have taken place.

This is difficult to do, because self-pride and ego impedes true repentance. Nevertheless, one cannot expect it to do it right the first time, because it is very difficult to take accountability and responsibilities for one’s wrong evil doing toward others; the person will try to protect their 'self', but if so; will lose his/her soul.

That being said, one must..

A: rehearse all that need to be said and done inregards to repenting

B: practice prayerfully to take accountability and ownership of the problem without externalizing blame, minimizing, rationalizing or justifying the wrong doing,

C: accepting Ruach to convict us of the SIN [s] and truly REPENT from these;

D: true repentance from the offender will be manifested by the polar opposite actions, not holding grunges, speaking evel or hate, letting anger go as well as mistrust, evil planning, vindictiveness [even in thought] and eventually by truly LOVING the person that was harmed; evidenced with WORKS of TRUST. 

 

You

5: In regard to the danger of to connect to the person again in good faith, actually to divorce is the better advise, right?

Yosef  

5:1 Right !, divorce would not exist and would not be in our Torah if it did not have a purpose with a greater foundational principle LOVE-

Divorce must happen when there is no LOVE and the actions are ponting to evil doing=worship.

IT, divorce is designed to send away the unbliever; once the unbeliever is on its own, if love was present; this person will certaintly miss it. [such as in the prodigal son]

The beleiver [The Father in this case/ and the Loving Husband also] then increases the evidence of this LOVE through A GREATER SACRIFICE. Yah died for our sins while we were still sinners. And we were certainly dirorced by Him. This SACRIFICE IS NEEDED so the unbeliever has absolutely NO DOUBT that LOVE is present even after one left the relationship. No one can stay sustainably in a relationship where there is no MUTUAL LOVE. What is worse, no love coupled with abuse and that partner having a relationhsip with someone else or satan evidenced by evil works, hate, jelouscy, mistrust, unhappyness, no shalom. 

Once the believer manifest the greatest evidence of LOVE, self-sacrifice; the marriage B’rit Chadasha message is send out; done with shofar sounds that penetrate the soul of the unbeliever, this is done with an invitation to the unbeliever  to a renewed marriage covenant. It is published and disseminated though pleading and tears, it must go to the ears of that one [s] who are called to repentence and to a new marriage; sent through the highways and pathways throug mesangers. if unheeded the receiver choses NOT to participate in Ketuvah; it is over.

 If these two may come together in a NEW MARRIAGE A NEW POWERFUL COVENANT has begun and with true LOVE shall endure forever.

LOVE is the essence, the energy, the transforming power that will rectify [Tikum Olam] all the universes, all creation, this LOVE must be within, there in us; LOVE WITHIN is the Kingdom of Heaven as Yahushua said. We the Nazarens must have this LOVE/EERGY/POWER/YAH within us, it can LITERALLY be felt, It can be SEEN with one's SPIRITUAL EYES; yes it can Selah, YAH/LOVE/will Kindle it within us, we cherish it and enjoy, this is the POWER of LOVE/ENERGy that every true followers of Yahushua HaMaschiah had and that kept them indivisible from the LOVE of YAH and that nothing could deterr them from The Way, the truth and the Life. 

Yah is LOVE, Yah gives LOVE, He/She does not just say it; He/She [Ruach] proves it over and over.

For YAH so LOVED the World that HE/She Gave His One and only Son, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting LIFE. Selah.

There is not a relationship when love and trust are lacking. If Yah, in His Beautiful Mercy let go of YisraEl-Yahuda-Ephrayim through divorce; there was a greater foundational principle; LOVE. He, Yah, Blessed be he, Selah; had difficulties letting them go, divorce them/he, Y’Israel.

Yah had made a vow, just like when two chose to become one flesh in a Ketuvah. Y’israEl broke the vow, the covenant; she no longer listened, he developed another relationship with idols; love for Yah and Hashem was gone, they idol worship fallen angels, creature, trusting others and themselves.

A Ketubah is a legal and binding Jewish document which is designed to protect, and ensure peace and security for the WOMAN in her marriage. 

Look, feel the internal emotional struggle when Yah tells:

"How shall I give THEE  up, Ephraim? [how] shall I cast thee off, Israel? How shall I make thee as Admah? [how] shall I set thee as Zeboiim? My heart is turned within me, my compassions are kindled together.

“When Israel was a child, I loved him,

and out of Egypt I called my son.

But the more they were called,

the more they went away from me.

They sacrificed to the Baals

and they burned incense to images.

It was I who taught Ephraim to walk,

taking them by the arms;

but they did not realize

it was I who healed them.[not their idols they worshiped, emphasis mine]

I led them with cords of human kindness,

with ties of love.

To them I was like one who lifts

a little child to the cheek,

and I bent down to feed them.

Ephraim has surrounded me with lies,

Israel with deceit.

And Judah is unruly against Elohim Yah,

even against the faithful Set Appart One

Therefore I am now going to allure her;

I will lead her into the wilderness

and speak tenderly to her.

There I will give her back her vineyards,

and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.

There she will respond as in the days of her youth,

as in the day she came up out of Egypt.

“In that day,” declares the YAH,

“you will call me ‘my husband’;

you will no longer call me ‘my master.

I will remove the names of the Baals from her lips;

no longer will their names be invoked.

I will betroth you to me forever;

I will betroth you in righteousness and justice,

in love and compassion. [Hosea]

We must try our best to save a marriage; even self-sacrifice [not allowing the flesh to rule; but the spirit] but we can only do our part, it the other half fails, it is what it is. 

As we can tell, Yah loved Y’israEl much, but Y’israEl had a problem processing this profound LOVE and went after himself through idol worship.

Yah was perplexed; later Yah did the unthinkable to keep them from self-destruction; He died for Y’Israel to prove His love. Yes, Yah Ha Kadosh BaruchJu divorced Y’israEl. Yes it was Y;israEl who left. Yes Torah says HE will turn His back on us when needed. Yes Yah Ha Kadosh BaruchJu has invited Y'israEl to attend the Marriage Super of the Lamb, Selah!

The message is still going to the highways and pathways; hopefully soon rather than later Y’israEl will ‘shoov’ from their sins and will HEAR His VOICE; Yahushua HaMashiach; those who don’t, their motives have been clear, if they dont show up, it is what it is, if they do and have no WEDDING garments, it is what it is.

If he Yahushua says I DO NOT KNOW YOU, it is what it is. 

 

You

6: He is a Jew

Yosef

6:1 A Jew is an Adam who is of Trust and LOVE with Yah and His Creation. [We all need to be true Jews]

You

7: What the father makes then of this or not, only time will show. I hope I understood it now right.

Yosef

7:1 Selah; you did. Consider the matter based on LOVE.

"You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. Brothers, each one should remain in that situation he was in when Yah called him".

 

I will share a personal time with Yah that I wrote in my journal of our relationship couple years ago:

I love you Yah Avinu Shebashamayim, I love you, I love you, I love you.

Toda raba for permitting me to understand a little more of your LOVE for me Yosef; and for permitting me to know You a little bit more.

I am sorry for having caused You so much wrong. Please forgive me.

I will always know when You are present by my side.

 

Shababth Shalom !

With loving kindness

Yosef
