First off I'm going off the limb here and what you are about to read goes against the grain of conventional counseling. The devil wants your marriage dead in it's track. The bible says he is a roaring lion but nowdays married folks see him little to no threat like a purring kitten. The bible says we don't fight against flesh and blood but against satan's army. So what does that mean? Say for instance. a married couple has turmiol in marriage and one spouse starts to think "is this worth it?" or whatevr it may be fill in the blank. Then a couple starts to drift apart eventually considering divorce. Whatever your circumstances might be all along we're fighting our flesh and blood "spouse" when the real enemy is the devil. Your spouse is just a vessel to carry out his plot to destroy you your spouse and your marriage.
Why marriage counseling don't work? Or let's say most of the time? It focuses on fixing us not eradicating the enemy. The enemy will be there and will always be there and will never leave until you cast the demonic apirit out. Some may say well I'm a christian and I don't believe that that's just way to extreme. Well if you're thinking that and going to church and reading the bible and just brushing off the very thing the bible WARNS us about a roaring lion ready to attack.
If you really nead good marital advice pray over your marriage and command the spirit to leave. If you have hateded toward your spouse command it to leave. If you think it's no use and you thinking about divorce tell the devil your no longer welcome get out. The devil hates your marriage you got to fight him with prayer.
The'res not going to be a self help book, not a counselor, a close friend, a trusted pastor an elder of the church that will help your marriage. Advice and counseling is jusr a feel good band-aid moment that just leave the marriage just on par.
I truely beleieve if beleivers who are experiencing marraige problems and the enemy is taking away the joy and the stability in the marraige stop blaming your spouse. Take aim at the enemy and fight him tell him to leave. The enemy wins when we blame our spouse.
The enemy is good at planting seeds of dought in your marriage. "We're not compatible". "He/ she done such and such". "Ilubinilwu". "I married the wrong one". "If i only married so and so".
I encourage all who is reading this and experiencing marriage difficulties get together with your spouse and pray ferverntly to cast out the demonic forces in your marriage. Tell it to leave in Jesus name!
You will never win no matter what no matter how much counseling is done or what ever is your best motives are.
The bible tells us to put on the full armor of God to fight against the devil. It didn't say put a t-shirt on and wish the best of luck duking it out with your spouse. Stop the insanity of thinking your spouse is the reason. Oh you don't know my spouse he/ she done such and such. Well if thats the case you underestimate the enemy.
Well I believe the enemy is not behind ever bush bla bla bla. Yeah keep believing that cause that is his weapon to decieve you even more and reap more havic in your life. Most christians just brush off this idea that there really isn't so much of a demonic battle going on. Well take a look around what's going on in this world. ISIS is beheading people every day, gun violence all around th US, the church has compromised on gay marriage, christianity is getting mocked at on the news, the divorce rate ia higher the the marraige rate, drugs, etc etc. I seriously dought all this occur cause they just misunderstood or there some scientific explanation.
The devil and his army are destroying marriages and yet the best we can say to the married "just try harder". This is not working the church has failed us, counseling has failed us, self help books not helping either. We can easily google something with todays technology to to fix something we can never fix on our own. All this knowlege we have today with technology we should have this marriage thang figured out. But guess what statistics show we are divorcing at even a larger rate than we was 5 years ago thanks to soxial media. Now we can ignore our spouse and flip thru facebook hours on end complaing about how hopeless our marrriage is. Reseach shows now facebook is causing marital discord. Anyrhing the enemy can use he will do it.
The whole reason I'm writing this is to change people's mindset. Fight the enemy not your spouse. If something ia wrong in your marraige the devil is behind it. After reading forums about marraige I'm sick and tired of people just giving up hope. Not once in any forums I visited and I surf quit a few does it mention the devil and hia tactics. It's just same ole put your foot down and try harder mentality that helps no one and people just end up divorce.
Good day everyone fight the good fight of faith. Put on the armor of God let's kick the devil out of marraiges. We need to pray hard and cast him out.
May this encourage all marraige couples you can win God is on your side.
