Lawful Marriages

Understanding the process of Marriage

  • The woman is under her father’s possession until he gives her over to a husband, then she is under the dominion of her husband from that time forth.

Sir 7:24

Hast thou daughters? have care of their body, and show not thy self-cheerful toward them.
Sir 7:25

Marry thy daughter, and so shalt thou have performed a weighty matter: but give her to a man of understanding. (the father has authority to marry his daughter unto whom he wills in the Lord )

Sir 36:21  

A woman will receive every man, yet is one daughter better than another. (the daughters will receive whomever their father appoints for them to marry, though one daughter may be better than another.)

  • Ahayah forbids a father to give his younger daughter in marriage before the older daughter. It is a wicked thing in the sight of Alahayim

Jubilees 28:6-7
[6]And Laban said to Jacob: 'It is not so done in our country, to give the younger before the elder.' And it is
not right to do this; for thus it is ordained and written in the heavenly tablets, that no one should give his
younger daughter before the elder; but the elder, one gives first and after her the younger and the man who
does so, they set down guilt against him in heaven, and none is righteous that does this thing, for this
deed is evil before .
[7]And command thou the children of Israel that they do not this thing; let them neither take nor give the
younger before they have given the elder, for it is very wicked.

  • The mindset of a righteous father toward his daughters as they grow up, is concerned for them through all their phases of life.

Sir 42:9

The father waketh for the daughter when no man knoweth, and the care for her taketh away sleep; when she is young lest she pass away the flower of her age, and being married, lest she should be hated:
Sir 42:10

In her virginity lest she should be defiled, and gotten with childe in her father’s house; and having an husband, lest she should misbehave herself: and when she is married, lest she should be barren.

  • The Laws of what is required to be married in Ahayah’s eyes: Dowry and Consummation

Deu 22:28

If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found:

Deu 22:29

Then the man that lay with her, shall give unto the damsels father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife, because he hath humbled her: he may not put her away all his days. (The father has to be paid dowry because she was his possession. The dowry is a token of the father's consent because the price has to be agreed upon.)
Exo 22:16

And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.

 

  • In order to be a woman’s husband, the man must pay the dowry and go into her (consummate). Both are essential for marriage, it is right to give dowry first to her father, and if one has gone into her before giving the dowry, the dowry must still be paid to fulfill the requirements of the law or else one would be considered a robber having taken the possession of her father without paying for her. Once both requirements are fulfilled, he becomes her husband. In becoming her husband, she becomes his possession, to be a helpmeet, and together they build a household by nurturing each other in righteous love!

Sir 36:24

He that getteth a wife, getteth a possession, a help like unto himself, and a pillar of rest.

  • Once married, the woman takes on her husband's name according to our records. One has to lay with the woman for her to be called by the one's name. 

Tobit 3:8

Because that she had been married to seven husbands, whom Asmodeus the evil spirit had killed, before they had lain with her. Dost thou not know, said they, that thou hast strangled thine husbands? thou hast had already seven husbands, neither wast thou named after any of them. (The men paid dowry but did not get to lay with her, hence she was not named after any of them because each one died before completing the marriage process. It is a gentile custom for a woman to be married and keep her last name. The Church herself is named after the Son of Alahayim {Hermas Parable 9 [1{78}:1])

 

Example of  Marriage process


• Examples of a Father giving his daughter away to a man in marriage for his price (dowry) and the consummating of the marriage by the man. The wedding feast is the tradition of the people, but the law does not require it. The law only requires Dowry and Consummation, but the tradition of the people are to have a feast that usually lasts 7-14 days. This is a great time of the coming together.
Tob 6:13

Then the young man answered the angel, I have heard, brother Azarias that this maid hath been given seven men, who all died in the marriage chamber. 

Tob 6:14

And now I am the only son of my father, and I am afraid, lest if i go in unto her, I die, as the other before: for a wicked spirit loveth her, which hurteth no body, but those which come unto her; wherefore I also fear lest i die, and bring my father's and my mother's life because of me to the grave with sorrow: for they have no other son to bury them. 

Tob 6:15

Then the angel said unto him, dost thou not remember the precepts which thy father gave thee, that thou shouldest marry a wife of thine own kindred? wherefore hear me, O my brother; for she shall be given thee to wife and make thou no reckoning of the evil spirit; for this same night shall she be given thee in marriage.

Tob 6:17 

And the devil shall smell it, and flee away, and never come again any more: but when thou shalt come to her, rise up both of you and pray to Alahayim which is merciful, who will have pity on you, and save you: fear not, for she is appointed unto thee from the beginning; and thou shalt preserve her and she shall go with thee. moreover i suppose that she shall bear thee children. Now when Tobias heard these things, he loved her and his heart was effectually joined to her. (It is attested that people are appointed for one another from the beginning {Matt 19:6}. Also we see that when the marriage that Ahayah has ordained is performed then salvation comes. The husband is indeed the saviour of the body, just as Yache is the saviour of the Church {Eph 5:23} hence when the woman was put with man she was ordained to be with, she was saved from the demon.)

Tob 7:1

And when they were come to Ecbatane, they came to the house of Raguel; and Sara met them: and after that they had saluted one another, she brought them into the house.
Tob 7:2

Then said Raguel to Edna his wife, How like is this young man to Tobit my cousin?
Tob 7:3

And Raguel asked them, From whence are you, brethren? To whom they said, We are of the sons of Naphtali, which are captives in Nineveh.
Tob 7:4

Then he said to them, Doe ye know Tobit our kinsman? And they said, We know him. Then said he, Is he in good health?
Tob 7:5

And they said, He is both alive, and in good health: And Tobias said, He is my father.
Tob 7:6

Then Raguel leaped up, and kissed him, and wept,
Tob 7:7

And blessed him; and said unto him, Thou art the son of an honest and good man: but when he had heard that Tobit was blind, he was sorrowful, and wept.
Tob 7:8

And likewise Edna his wife, and Sara his daughter wept. Moreover, they entertained them cheerfully, and after that they had killed a ram of the flock, they set store of meat on the table. Then said Tobias to Raphael, Brother Azarias, speak of those things, of which thou diddest talk in the way, and let this business be dispatched.

Tob 7:9

So he communicated the matter with Raguel, and Raguel said to Tobias, Eat and drink, and make merry:

Tob 7:10

For it is meet that thou shouldest marry my daughter: nevertheless I will declare unto thee the truth. (So the father and suitor for his daughter discussed giving her in marriage first)
Tob 7:11

I have given my daughter in marriage to seven men, who died that night they came in unto her: nevertheless for the present be merry: But Tobias said, I will eat nothing here, till we agree and swear one to another.
Tob 7:12

Raguel said, Then take her from henceforth according to the manner, for thou art her cousin, and she is thine, and the merciful Alahayim give you good success in all things. (The agreement is confirmed by an oath for Tobias to have her according to the custom)
Tob 7:13 Then he called his daughter Sara, and she came to her father, and he took her by the hand, and gave her to be wife to Tobias, saying, Behold, take her after the Law of Moses, and lead her away to thy father: And he blessed them, (The father had authority by calling her to him and taking her by the hand, then he transferred it over to Tobias, so that he could keep the law of Moses, which requires him to lay with her to complete the process, then he can take her with him because the woman will then be the flesh of the man.)

Tob 7:14

And called Edna his wife, & took paper, and did write an instrument of covenants, and sealed it. (They made a marriage contract by signing a covenant as evidence of their agreement)

Tob 7:15

Then they began to eat.
Tob 7:16

After Raguel called his wife Edna, and said unto her, Sister, prepare another chamber, & bring her in thither. (The mother prepares the marriage chamber and prepares her daughter for marriage. The man will go into the chamber to go into the woman.  Notice the love between Raguel and Edna in the fact that he calls her sister, which show that he learned to love his wife as a sister first, not for lusts sake.)
Tob 7:17

Which when she had done as he had bidden her, she brought her thither, and she wept, & she received the tears of her daughter, and said unto her,
Tob 7:18

Be of good comfort, my daughter,the Adono of heaven and earth give thee joy for this thy sorrow: be of good comfort, my daughter.
Tob 8:1

And when they had supped, they brought Tobias in unto her.
Tob 8:2

And as he went, he remembered the words of Raphael, and took the ashes of the perfumes, and put the heart, and the liver of the fish thereupon, and made a smoke therewith.
Tob 8:3

The which smell, when the evil spirit had smelled, he fled into the outmost parts of Egypt, and the Angel bound him.
Tob 8:4

And after that they were both shut in together, Tobias rose out of the bed and said, Sister, arise, and let vs pray, that Alahayim would have pity on vs. (So one ought to pray before coming together that Ahayah may bless the union.)
Tob 8:5

Then began Tobias to say, Blessed art thou, O Alahayim of our fathers, and blessed is thy holy and glorious Name for ever, let the heavens bless thee, and all thy creatures.
Tob 8:6

Thou madest Adam, and gavest him Chiuwah his wife for an helper & stay: of them came mankind: thou hast said, It is not good that man should be alone, let vs make unto him an aid like to himself.
Tob 8:7

And now, O AHAYAH, I take not this my sister for lust, but uprightly: therefore mercifully ordain, that we may become aged together. (We don't marry for lust sake.) 

Tob 8:8

And she said with him, Amen. (They were in agreement in prayer and in unity which is beautiful in the eyes of Holy Spirit {Sirach 25:1})

Tob 8:9

So they slept both that night, and Raguel arose, and went & made a grave (they consummated the marriage!!)

Tob 8:19 And he kept the wedding feast fourteen days. (The wedding feast is a formality at this point seeing as though the agreement (dowry) and consummation has been completed.)
Tob 8:20

For before the days of the marriage were finished, Raguel had said unto him by an oath, that he should not depart, till the fourteen days of the marriage were expired,
Tob 8:21

And then he should take the half of his goods, and go in safety to his father, and should have the rest when I and my wife be dead. (This union of man and wife was to be forever just as the Heavenly Father Ahayah and Heavenly Mother Holy Spirit are ONE forever, this is why divorce was not Ahayah’s will from the beginning, He actually hates it because divorce is against his image that he created us in. He created us male and female in their image to be cleaved (impinged/stuck) together in unity. This is also why the only grounds for divorce is fornication because fornication is an sin unto death. (Leviticus 18:29, I Corinthians 6:18,10:8)

Tob 10:7  

But she said, Hold thy peace, and deceive me not: my son is dead, and she went out every day into the way which they went, and did eat no meat on the day time, and ceased not whole nights, to bewaile her son Tobias, until the fourteen days of the wedding were expired, which Raguel had sworn, that he should spend there: Then Tobias said to Raguel, Let me go, for my father, and my mother look no more to see me. 
Tob 10:8

 But his father in law said unto him, Tary with me, and I will send to thy father, and they shall declare unto him, how things go with thee. 
Tob 10:9  

But Tobias said, No: but let me go to my father. 
Tob 10:10  

Then Raguel arose and gave him Sara his wife, and half his goods, servants, & cattle, and money. 
Tob 10:11  

And he blessed them, and sent them away, saying, The Alahayim of heaven give you a prosperous journey, my children. (Now that they are married, Tobias is his son too.)
Tob 10:12  And he said to his daughter, Honor thy father and thy mother in law, which are now thy parents, that I may hear good report of thee: and he kissed her. Edna also said to Tobias, The Adono of heauen restore thee, my dear brother, and grant that I may see thy children of my daughter Sara before I die, that I may rejoice before the Ahayah: behold, I commit my daughter unto thee of special trust, wherefore do not entreat her evil. (We see now that they are family, Edna is permitted to speak unto her son in law, and it is in sincerity as we see she calls him brother. She reverenced her husband and did not speak to any man that was not her husband, father, brother from her father, or children. Also the wife's father encourages her to work righteousness by honoring her new parents, that he may hear good things about her just as Sirach 42:9-10 mentioned how a father worries for his daughter in hopes that she doesn't misbehave herself. We can see the sincere love of the father to admonish his daughter to do well and he showed her affection before she departed. We also see the sincere admonition of Edna to Tobias as well, to admonish him to entreat her no evil, which is according to the law because husbands aren't to be bitter against their wives, {Col 3:19} nor teach them an evil lesson to their own hurt, {Sir 9:1} but to dwell with them according to knowledge [I Pet 3:7} giving them a lot of attention and affection that they may not wax faint in this journey to the kingdom.)

  • • A father can sell his daughter to a man to be a maidservant, which is the man's wife, since he has paid a dowry for her. The man can also buy her from her father for his son. An Example of these types of wives which are maidservants are Bilhah and Zilpah, the wives of Jacob.


Exo 21:7

And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do. (In the 7th year of release she does not go out free like the men do, {Leviticus 25:40-41} because she is espoused to the man to be his wife. She is not just a servant alone like the menservants, so once he goes in unto her he cannot put her away all the days of his life because she is his flesh.)

Exo 21:8

If she please not her master, who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her. (He paid the dowry by buying her from her father, so she is betrothed unto him, but if he did not go in unto her to complete the marriage requirement, he hath dealt deceitfully with her because he didn’t marry her like had bought her for, so she can be purchased by her family and return to her Father’s house because she wasn’t defiled, so she can still be given to another man in marriage.)
Exo 21:9

And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.
(She becomes his daughter in law, and is treated as his own daughter, if he bought her for his son to marry. Benjamin was an example of this when his father bought a wife for him.)

  • Example of taking a wife for your son:

Jasher 45:21.

And Jacob sent to Aram the son of Zoba, the son of Terah, and for his son Benjamin he took Mechalia, the daughter of Aram, and she came to the land of Canaan to the house of Jacob ; and Benjamin was ten years old when he took Mechalia the daughter of Aram for a wife

 

  • This purchase of a woman is the beginning of building a household by her guiding their house according to the admonitions of her husband and baring seed to continue his name, even as Ahayah has begotten Yache from the womb of Wisdom, and Wisdom guides him to increase and fill the earth with his spirit that the name of Ahayah may be magnified. So are women to operate in all righteousness guiding the house and bearing seed as the command was for man to increase and multiply. From the beginning, the woman’s desire was to be unto the will of her husband and he would guide her unto the will of Ahayah.

Gen 3:16

Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception. In sorrow thou shalt bring forth children: and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

 

  • The Union of a husband and his wife is beautiful in the sight of Alahayim because He is united with his family and made us to be in his image. Wisdom, Ahayah’s wife, the Mother of Yache (Luke 7:35)

Sir 25:1

In three things I was beautified, and stood up beautiful, both before Alahayim and men: the unity of brethren, the love of neighbors, a man and a wife that agree together.
Sir 25:7

There be nine things which I have judged in mine heart to be happy, and the tenth I will utter with my tongue: a man that hath joy of his children, and he that liveth to see the fall of his enemy.
Sir 25:8

Well is him that dwelleth with a wife of understanding, and that hath not slipped with his tongue, and that hath not served a man more unworthy then himself.
Sir 40:23 A friend and companion never meet amiss:
but above both is a wife with her husband.

ATTENTION ISRAELITES AND GENTILE BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE FAITH.

Now we must draw our attention to an important understanding of the law by revelation of Ahayah Alahayim. We speak unto you dear Brothers and Sisters, which means you are a believer in Yache by your faith, keeping the law, and bearing fruits of the Spirit.{I Cor 5:11} We speak to you who know the law in truth.{Rom 7:1}

FIRSTLY, PLEASE REFERENCE THE TAB ON "Are All Gentiles the Same?" BEFORE READING THIS, SO THAT ONE MAY UNDERSTAND.

Firstly, it is essential to understand that we, Jew and Gentile, are brothers and sisters by faith in Yache, who is the seed of Abraham that was promised to make him a father of many nations. So we who believe in Yache, are counted for the seed of Abraham according to the Spirit and partakers in the promises that were given by the Father.

Galatians 3:6-9,13-14,22,26-29
[6]Even as Abraham believed Alahayim, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
[7]Know ye therefore that
they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. (those of the Jews who believe are children, the flesh profits us nothing if we don't believe.)
[8]And the scripture, foreseeing that Alahayim would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the
gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed
.
[9]So then
they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. (The Gentiles that believe are blessed with Abraham as well.)
[13]Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is
every one that hangeth on a tree:
(Christ redeemed the Jews and gave light to the Gentiles.)
[14]That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Yache Christ; that we might receive
the promise of the Spirit through faith.
(His sacrifice was to bring the blessings on the gentiles through faith because he had to bless the Jews first since they are firstborn then graft in his gentiles who are called by Ahayah's name, through the same faith.)
[22]But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Yache Christ might be given to
them that believe.
(The promise is given to Jew and Gentile that believe because Jew and Gentile were under sin.)
[26]For ye are all the children of Alahayim by faith in Christ Yache. (Now Jew and Gentile are children of Abraham by faith.)
[27]For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
[28]
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye
are all one in Christ Yache.

[29]And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. 

  • Yache came to reconcile the house of the Father and make us all one, according to the Spirit, hence we are all brethren and sisters through him.

Ephesians 2:11-15,18-22
[11]Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by
that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made  by hands;
(They were Gentiles because of their uncircumsied heart, but through Christ they are Brothers and Sisters now.)
[12]That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers
from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without Alahayim in the world:
[13]
But now in Christ Yache ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. (The gentiles are no more strangers unto us.)
[14]For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; (Jew and Gentile are one family in Yache.)
[15]Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; (we are both new men by Yache's spirit with no enmity walking in Love together by Yache in us, the hope of Glory {Col 1:24-27})
[18]For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. (We are all the children of the Holy Spirit through Yache to access our Father, Ahayah.) Luke 7:35  But wisdom is justified of all her children. 
[19]Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of Alahayim; (believing Gentiles are not Gentiles or strangers, they are saints, brothers and sisters of the household of Alahayim.)
[20]And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Yache Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
[21]In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Adono:
[22]In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of Alahayim through the Spirit.

  • Now we understand in truth, we are all his children by Yache and no man is common or unclean

Galatians 4:6
[6]And
because ye are sons, Alahayim hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba,
Father.
(we all call upon the Father together through Yache in us.)
Acts 10:28
[28]And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew
to keep company G2853, or come unto one of another nation; but Alahayim hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. (Peter was shown that men and women of Israel (excluding the sons of Aaron unless in specific cases) could indeed marry believing Gentiles that were no longer called common or unclean, for they became the children of faithful Abraham in spirit being sanctified by the word, which is Yache.)

Acts 10:34-35

34  Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that Alahayim is no respecter of persons:

35  But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him

  • The apostle Paul showed that there is no more dissimulation between us(Israel) and the Gentiles thru faith because Yache has made us one new man. Peter was admonished for showing separation from the gentiles which was contrary to the truth of the Gospel, because according to the truth of the Gospel, anyone who believes in Yache and obeys him is our brother and sister and of the house of Abraham.

Galatians 2:11-18
[11]But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.
[12]For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.
(They were walking in truth initially, but then because of other Israelites, they became respecters of persons and separated from the brothers and sisters of the gentiles who were fellow saints. This was not according to the truth of the gospel, hence Paul spoke up.)
[13]And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation. (We, Jews, have to be mindful because a lot of the dissimulation today comes from us chiefly, through our hate for the Gentiles and lack of Love toward Alahayim in truth by loving our neighbors.)
[14]But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews? (Paul saw they weren't operating in truth, so he said in laymen's terms "If you're a real Jew in the faith, but operating after the carnal dissimulation of unbelieving gentiles, instead of walking in the truth of the gospel as is becoming of real Jews in the faith, why are you compelling the gentiles to live according to the truth of the Gospel like the real Jews by faith, when you're not setting a good example for them of how to walk in unity as brothers and sisters by your dissimulation after a carnal manner?") 
[15]We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles,
(we, Jews, who are circumcised in the flesh with the blood of animals sprinkled upon us, and not sinners of the uncircumcised in heart and flesh Gentiles.)
[16]Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Yache Christ, even we have believed in Yache Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. (Since we are already circumcised in the flesh and had animal sacrifice, we know that it was of no profit to us if we are sinners, because we sinned while having both and weren't justified just because of those works, so we know that it is only through Yache that one can truly be circumcised and have the atonement { Rom 3:31} to be justified.)
[17]But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? Alahayim forbid. (If we don't treat the Gentiles as brothers and sisters,we are sinners, because that is against what Yache's spirit has made them. Yache's blood makes them fellow citizens and our little brothers because we are the firstborn, so if we separate from them, we are separating from our own kin in the spirit and offending our Adono Yache's people. Christ is not the minister of dissimulation, but of unity and peace, hence Alahayim forbid that we treat the believing gentiles not as brothers and sisters as they are in truth.)
[18]For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. (If we turn back to separating ourselves from them, we are transgressors because Yache already grafted them in and we would be transgressing against him.)

We would be kicking against Yache's reconciliation of all nations into one body to degrade true Brothers and Sisters marriages, especially since Yache's mother according to the flesh ,Ruth, was a gentile..We just have to look at the laws to understand what Alahayim desires brothers and sisters to abide by to marry righteously. 

Marrying Unbelievers

  • Concerning the marrying of persons that are unbelievers before coming into the knowledge of the true gospel, we, Jew and Gentile, have all walked in the unbelief and error of our former lives according to our lusts {Tit 3:2-3; Eph 2:1-3} and possibly gotten married to people who don't believe the True Gospel.

 

Titus 3:2-3

2  To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. (we have to be even more mindful to walk uprightly knowing we have erred ourselves.)

3  For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

Ephesians 2:1-3

1  And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

2  Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

3  Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

Colossians 1:21

21  And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled.

  • Now, that we have been quickened and reconciled, if we are already married to an unbelieving person, we are commanded not to separate from them if they are pleased to dwell with us {I Cor 7:12-13,17} because our examples as a believer might win them over to believe the faith.{I Cor 7:16} And furthermore, it is our faith that sanctifies our children if we have any.{I Cor 7:14} On the other hand, if our spouse is an unbeliever that is not pleased to dwell with us and they choose to depart, then we must let them depart and we are not withheld from marrying another person who is a fellow believer after that because the former spouse was an unbeliever in the first place and they rejected the gospel. {I Cor 7:15}

1 Corinthians 7:12-17

12  But to the rest speak I, not the Adono: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.

13  And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.

14  For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

15  But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but Alahayim hath called us to peace.

16  For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?

17  But as Alahayim hath distributed to every man, as the Adono hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.

  • For the Brothers, we are commanded if we are loosed from a wife, we ought not to seek another wife, but focus on good works and studying of the law and our labours until Ahayah give u a wife whom He wills so that we do not fall into error by taking wives through lust that Ahayah had not ordained for us to have.

1Co 7:27  

Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife. 

Testament of Reuben 4:1

1 Pay no heed, therefore, my children, to the beauty of women, nor set your mind on their affairs; but walk in singleness of heart in the fear of AHAYAH, and expend labour on good works, and on study and on your flocks, until AHAYAH give you a wife, whom He will, that ye suffer not as I did

  • Now, to the Brothers, which are Jews or Gentiles, that believe and obey the truth of the Gospel, if one's unbelieving wife departs, one is free to marry, but one is forbidden to marry any unbelieving woman of any nation including Israel. Also, if one already has a unbelieving wife who didn't depart or she is a Sister, (which is a believer who dwells with you in the truth) and one is given a second wife, one is forbidden to take an unbeliever of any nation (including Israel) in this case as well. We are forbidden to marry any unbelieving women, which are idolaters, once we have received the knowledge of the truth. We are commanded not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers, so we cannot go marry any unbeliever after we know the truth that the children of Alahayim are them that have the Testimony of Yache, and we are suppose to be equally yoked with the faithful.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

14  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16  And what agreement hath the temple of Alahayim with idols? for ye are the temple of the living Alahayim; as Alahayim hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their Alahayim, and they shall be my people.

17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith Ahayah, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

18  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Ahayah Almighty.

  • Through Yache's spirit, Jew and Gentile have become children Alahayim, which will also make us children of Abraham according to the promise of the Spirit. {Gal 3:7-9,14,22,26-29}

Galatians 3:7-9

7  Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.

8  And the scripture, foreseeing that Alahayim would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

9  So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

Galatians 3:13-14

13  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

14  That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Yache Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Romans 3:29-30

29  Is he the Alahayim of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:

30  Seeing it is one Alahayim, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

Galatians 3:26-29

26  For ye are all the children of Alahayim by faith in Christ Yache.

27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

28  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Yache.

29  And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

  • We see that Abraham's seed are those of the Jews & Gentiles with Yache's spirit. These are the true heirs to the promises and our brothers & sisters that we make marriages with. We do not make marriages with the children of the devil, rather we only marry the seed of our Father in Heaven and our father Abraham according to truth. 

1 John 3:7-10

7  Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.

8  He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Alahayim was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

9  Whosoever is born of Alahayim doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of Alahayim.

10  In this the children of Alahayim are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of Alahayim, neither he that loveth not his brother.

  • Now that we know the difference between the children of Alahayim and the children of the devil, {I John 3:7-10} we ought to only take spouses from the tribe of our Father in Heaven and of his seed, Yache, which are the Saints. We get edification of this in the book of Barnabas because the true circumcision was Yache in our hearts for Jew and Gentile.

Barnabas 9:1

Furthermore He saith concerning the ears, how that it is our heart which He circumcised. AHAYAH saith in the prophet; With the hearing of the ears they listened to Me. And again He saith; They that are afar off shall hear with their ears, and shall perceive what I have done. And; Be ye circumcised in your hearts, saith AHAYAH.

Barnabas 9:2

And again He saith; Hear, O Israel, for thus saith AHAYAH thy Alahayim. Who is he that desireth to live forever, let him hear with his ears the voice of My servant. And again He saith; Hear, O heaven, and give ear, O earth, for AHAYAH hath spoken these things for a testimony. And again He saith; Hear the words of AHAYAH, ye rulers of this people. And again He saith; Hear, O my children, the voice of one crying in the wilderness. Therefore He circumcised our ears, that hearing the word we might believe. (This hearing of the word was for Jew and Gentile, as is evident in Acts 10:45, for the gentiles received the seal of the Holy Spirit)

Barnabas 9:3

But moreover the circumcision, in which they have confidence, is abolished; for He hath said that a circumcision not of the flesh should be practiced. But they transgressed, for an evil angel taught them cleverness.
Barnabas 9:4

He saith unto them; Thus saith AHAYAH your Alahayim (so I find the commandment); sow not upon thorns, be ye circumcised to your Adọnọye. And what saith He? Be ye circumcised in the hardness of your heart; and then ye will not harden your neck. Take this again; Behold, sayeth AHAYAH, all the Gentiles are uncircumcised in their foreskin, but this people is uncircumcised in their hearts.

Barnabas 9:5

But thou wilt say; In truth the people hath been circumcised for a seal. Nay, but so likewise is every Syrian and Arabian and all the priests of the idols. Do all those then too belong to their covenant? Moreover the Egyptians also are included among the circumcised.

Barnabas 9:6

Learn therefore, children of love, concerning all things abundantly, that Abraham, who first appointed circumcision, looked forward in the spirit unto Yache, when he circumcised having received the ordinances of three letters. (Abraham was shown that it was going to be Yache's seed that was called the circumcision, not just being circumcised in the flesh)

 

 

  • Now, to the Sisters, which are women of all nations, who believe and obey the truth of the gospel, if your unbelieving husband departs, you are free to marry, but you are also forbidden to marry an unbelieving man of any nation including Israel because you are not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers either. You must marry a Brother, a son of Alahayim by the spirit of Yache in him. Please be admonished Sisters, that if your unbelieving husband departs or dies you must remarry if you are under 60 years of age.{I Tim 5:9-14} For you are not of age to be a widow as saith the gospel {1 Tim 5:9}. Both Brothers and Sisters must be diligent to ensure that the person they are courting or being courted by for marriage is one that is actually converted to the faith in truth, not just a talker or respecter of what you believe, but won't partake in it. Brothers and Sisters can only marry within the house of Ahayah because there is no concord between Yache and Beliar.

1Co 7:13  

And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. 

1Co 7:15  

But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but Alahayim hath called us to peace. 

1Co 7:39  

The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord

 

Exhortation to All 

  • For reiteration, if you are married to an unbeliever before coming into the knowledge of the truth that you have to keep the law, bear the fruits, and believe on the name Yache, do not leave them. If they are pleased to dwell with you, then stay with them. On the other hand, if you are already in the knowledge of the Truth before marriage, and walking uprightly in Charity, you are forbidden to marry any unbelievers because they are idolaters. Unless they convert, we cannot make marriages with them, regardless of what nation they are from. Judah's marriage to the unbelieving Canaanite woman is an example of how Idolatrous women cause death of children and ruin households. We also have Solomon's marriage to an idolatrous woman that caused him to fall (reference "False doctrine on Multiple wives"). We have an example of a believing sisters, regardless of nation as well. For example, Rahab the Harlot of Canaan and Ruth the Moabitish woman, both of whom converted and were grafted into the building of the House of Israel as the fore-mothers of David. (Please reference examples of righteous women, multiple wives, and admonitions to women for details.) The laws Yache set are for our protection from evil.

  • Lastly, if two are married and both are believers, there are different requirements if either spouse departs. Since the spouse was a believer, the other spouse must remain alone, so that the one that left may have an opportunity to repent and return. { I Cor 7:10-11} This is the Command of Adono.

1 Corinthians 7:10-11

10  And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Adono, Let not the wife depart from her husband:

11  But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

Lawful Marriages for the Children of Israel

  • Children of Israel, we are required to do the whole law,{Gad the Seer 9:9-11; II Chron 33:8} and there are specific laws for us in regards to marriage. Firstly, as was mentioned prior, we are not to marry any unbelievers of any nation including Israel because they will turn our hearts away from Ahayah. (Nor do we encourage the Gentiles to marry unbelievers of any nation including Israel.)

The Sons of Aaron the Priest

  • The Laws for the priests, which are the sons of Aaron, requires that they cannot marry any besides the believing maidens of the seed of the House of Israel or a believing widow (Hebrew or Gentile) that was the wife of a priest before. Of course if one is already married to a unbeliever of any nation before coming into the knowledge of the truth, do not put away your wife, because we are called as we are. {I Cor 7:20} It would be a transgression of the law to divorce her since she hasn't committed fornication.{Matt 19:9} Ahayah has suffered the man to marry the woman before coming into the knowledge of the truth, so "what Alahayim hath joined together let no man put asunder."{Matt 19:3-6} Only take heed and do not marry another woman who is not a maiden (believer) of the seed of the house of Israel or a believing widow (Hebrew or Gentile) that had been married to a priest before, now that one is a believer having knowledge of the law & keeping it by faith in Yache. On the other hand, if a son of Aaron marries an unbeliever of Israel or any nation of the Gentiles (bloodline) presumptuously with knowledge of this law, it is sin unto Him. A priest cannot marry any of the daughters of Canaan because the Israelites are forbidden to do so {Jub 27:8;20:4} unless she is a believing widow of a former priest. (they cannot marry any of the women mentioned in the unlawful marriage segment of this tab).

Ezekiel 44:22

22  Neither shall they take for their wives a widow, nor her that is put away: but they shall take maidens of the seed of the house of Israel, or a widow that had a priest before.

Jub 20:4

[4] And if any woman or maid commit fornication amongst you, burn her with fire and let them not commit fornication with her after their eyes and their heart; and let them not take to themselves wives from the daughters of Canaan; for the seed of Canaan will be rooted out of the land. (The seed of Canaan is referring to the unbelieving males of Canaan because believing men are accepted of Alahayim by example of Hiram the Tyrian [Gad ch.9] and Uriah the Hittite.[II Sam 11:1-11].  Also, the daughters of Canaan that believe shall be saved even as Rahab the Harlot {Heb 11:31}, the Syrophenician woman of Mark 7:26, and the widow of Zarephath in the days of Elijah. {I King 17} The priest are just not permitted to marry them unless she was a believing widow of a former priest.)

Testament of Levi 14:6

6 And out of covetousness ye shall teach the commandments of Ahayah, wedded women shall ye pollute, and the virgins of Jerusalem shall ye defile: and with harlots and adulteresses shall ye be joined, and the daughters of the Gentiles shall ye take to wife, purifying them with an unlawful purification; and your union shall be like unto Sodom and Gomorah. (As we see in the law of Eze 44:22, Aaron's sons were only to marry the believing maidens of the house of Israel or a widow (Hebrew/Gentile) that was the wife a former priest, hence it is unlawful purification for a son of Aaron to take a daughter of the Gentiles, which are unbelievers of any nation, to wife because it is a transgression of the law for the sons of Aaron and believers in Yache to marry an unbeliever of any nation since we are not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers {II Cor 6:14} and can only marry in the Adono. {I Cor 7:39}. The rest of the tribe of Levi, excluding the sons of Aaron, may marry believing maidens of Israel or the Gentiles bloodline on the other hand. For example, Moses' marriage to his believing wife, Zipporah the Midianitish woman, was righteous because there was no transgression since he was not a priest, but the sons of Aaron may only marry maidens (believers) of Israel or believing widows (Hebrew or Gentile) that was married to a priest before. A Levite marrying a believing daughter of the gentiles or Israel is not unlawful purification because there is no transgression of the law, but a priest marrying a unbelieving Gentile or a believing Gentile that was not the widow of a priest, or an unbelieving Israelite is an unlawful purification because it is a transgression of the law for the priests. The priest may only marry maidens of the SEED, which is Christ, of the House of Israel or a believing widow that had a priest before because she is the seed of Abraham by faith in Yache {Gal 3:27-29;1 Cor 7:39} and the law of Eze 44:22 is not transgressed.)

  • The daughters of the sons of Aaron may be given to believers of any nation (except the men mentioned in the unlawful marriage segment of this tab), which are brothers (Jew/Gentile) and the seed of Abraham by the faith in Yache. The law does not restrict the daughters of Aaron from being given in marriage to any brother that is of the seed of Abraham by faith in Yache. The restriction to "only marry a believing Israelite" pertains to the sons of Aaron only, not the daughters, hence there are laws for instruction on what to do when a daughter of a priest has been given to a stranger in marriage... 

Lev 22:12  

[12] If the priest's daughter also be married unto a stranger, she may not eat of an offering of the holy things. 

The tribe of Levi

  • Concerning the rest of the tribe of Levi, excluding the sons of Aaron, your sons can marry sisters in the faith (Hebrew/Gentile) in the faith of Yache (except the unbelieving daughters of Canaan mentioned in the unlawful marriage segment of this tabby evidence of Moses being married to a believing Gentile named Zipporah which was lawful because he was not a priest of the seed of Aaron. Your daughters can be given in marriage to brothers (Hebrew/Gentile) in the faith of Yache (except the unbelieving men of the nations mentioned in the unlawful marriage segment of this tab). Your sons and daughters cannot be given unto any nation in marriage besides believers of the seed of Abraham by faith which are Brothers and Sisters of the Hebrews and Gentiles that believe in Yache, Keep the law, and bear the fruits of the Spirit.

Testament of Levi 9:9-10

Beware of the spirit of fornication; for this shalt continue and shall by thy seed pollute the holy place. Take therefore, to thyself a wife without blemish or pollution, while yet thou art young, and not of the race of strange nations. (strange nations are those who walk contrary to the faith of Ahayah Alahayim. It does not pertain to literal Gentiles according to the flesh because Levi himself married a woman that was not an Israelite but believed even as Moses married a woman that was not an Israelite but believed because "a strange nation" is referring to an unbeliever in Ahayah Alahayim.)

The rest of the Tribes of Israel

Excluding the priest and the laws that pertain to them, the 12 Tribes of Israel's men can marry believers of any nation except the unbelieving women mentioned in the unlawful marriage segment of this tab because we were commanded not to take them for wives. A woman of any other nation must be converted and believe the true Gospel before one can marry them, just like Rahab the Harlot and Ruth the Moabite, Yache's fore-parents of the flesh, and Asenath the Egyptian, Joseph's wife. Our daughters of the house of Israel may be given in marriage to brothers (Hebrews/Gentile) in the faith of Yache (except the unbelieving men mentioned in the unlawful marriage segment of this tab).

Examples:​

  1. Abram took Hagar from Sarai, his wife, who trusted her because she was righteous. Hagar was a Hamite, Egyptians by race.

Jasher 16:24-26,28

24. And when she saw that she bare no children she took her handmaid Hagar, whom Pharaoh had given her, and she gave her to Abram her husband for a wife.

25. For Hagar learned all the ways of Sarai as Sarai taught her, she was not in any way deficient in following her good ways.

26. And Sarai said to Abram, behold here is my handmaid Hagar, go to her that she may bring forth upon my knees, that I may also obtain children through her.

28. And Abram hearkened to the voice of his wife Sarai, and he took his handmaid Hagar and Abram came to her and she conceived. 

  2. Abraham took Keturah, a Canaanite woman raised up in his household, to wife. 

Jasher 25:1

24. And it was at that time that Abraham again took a wife in his old age, and her name was Keturah, from the land of Canaan.

Jubiles 19:11

And Abraham took to himself a third wife, and her name was Keturah, from among the daughters of his household servants, for Hagar had died before Sarah. And she bare him six sons, Zimram, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah, in the two weeks of years.

  3. Joseph took a Egyptian woman after converting the whole country to righteousness.

Jubilee 40:8-10​

8 And Joseph ruled over all the land of Egypt, and all the princes of Pharaoh, and all his servants, and all who did the king's business loved him, for he walked in uprightness, for he was without pride and arrogance, and he had no respect of persons, and did not accept gifts, but he judged in uprightness all the people of the land.

9 And the land of Egypt was at peace before Pharaoh because of Joseph, for AHAYAH was with him, and gave him favour and mercy for all his generations before all those who knew him and those who heard concerning him, and Pharaoh's kingdom was well ordered, and there was no Satan and no evil person (therein).

10 And the king called Joseph's name Sephantiphans, and gave Joseph to wife the daughter of Potiphar, the daughter of the priest of Heliopolis, the chief cook.

  4. Moses also took a wife of Midian​ after she had shown herself to be a believer.

Jasher 78:7-8

7. In those days, Moses, the son of Amram, while in Midian, took Zipporah, the daughter of Reuel the Midianite, for a wife 

8. And Zipporah walked in the ways of the daughters of Jacob, she was nothing short of the righteousness of Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah.

​  5. Salmon, the forefather of Yache according to the flesh, took Rahab the Canaanite, who who believed in Ahayah, and bare him the righteous Boaz.

Heb 11:31  

By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace. 

Mat 1:5  

And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; 

  6. Boaz, the forefather of Yache according to the flesh, took Ruth the Moabite, who converted unto Ahayah, and the union was blessed.

Ruth 1:16

16  And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy Alahayim my Alahayim:

Ruth 3:9-11

9  And he said, Who art thou? And she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman.

10  And he said, Blessed be thou of Ahayah, my daughter: for thou hast shewed more kindness in the latter end than at the beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men, whether poor or rich.

11  And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to thee all that thou requirest: for all the city of my people doth know that thou art a virtuous woman.

Ruth 4:10-12

10  Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place: ye are witnesses this day.

11  And all the people that were in the gate, and the elders, said, We are witnesses. Ahayah make the woman that is come into thine house like Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel: and do thou worthily in Ephratah, and be famous in Bethlehem:

12  And let thy house be like the house of Pharez, whom Tamar bare unto Judah, of the seed which Ahayah shall give thee of this young woman.

Unlawful marriages:

We are commanded not to marry the unbelievers of daughters of Canaan because they are very evil. {Jubilee 27:8;20:4} Also, their seed (the males) that do not believe shall be rooted out,{Testament of Simeon 6:3; Jub 22:20} so we can't give our daughters to the unbelieving men either, or else we would be dooming them to pass away in the unbelief of the Canaanites. The believers of the Canaanites are children of Abraham by faith and are brothers and sisters in the Lord Yache so marriages can be made with them. We also cannot give our daughters to the unbelievers of Philistines because their seed (the males) shall perish as well. {Jubilee 24:28-33} Marriages may be made with believing brothers and sisters of the Philistines. We cannot make marriages with the unbelievers of the Cappadocians. {Testament of Simeon 6:3} We cannot give our daughters unto unbelievers of the men of Edom because their unbelieving males will not have a remnant. {Jer 49:10; Oba 1:18; Gad the Seer 2:15-26} Yet, their believing males and females are counted for the seed of Abraham by faith, and shall be left as a remnant of the Tribe of Edom who are called by the name of Ahayah, {Amos 9:12} and thus we can make marriages with them in Christ. We cannot make marriages with the unbelievers of the daughters of Edom, yet their believing women shall trust in Ahayah, so we may marry the believers of the daughters of Edom {Jer 49:11 } We are not to make any marriages with the sons or daughters of Amalek because their race will be no more in the end. {Testament of Simeon 6:3;Num 24:20;Duet 25:19} Also, we are not to give our daughters unto the Moabites or Ammonites because their seed (males) shall be no more in the end.{Jubilee 16:-9} Their males cannot enter into the congregation.{Duet 23:2-3} Yet, their daughters belong to Ahayah {Gad the Seer 3:8} so we may make marriages with the daughters of the Moabites and Ammonites like Boaz did with Ruth the Moabitess. We are also not to make marriages with the unbelievers of children of Israel because all the sinners of our people shall perish, {Amos 9:8-10} since unbelievers of Israel are not truly Israel.{Rom 9:6;2:28-29} Also, the men of Israel who are not sealed on their foreheads will perish in unbelief along with their households because they do not have the mark of the servants of Alahayim on their foreheads. {Eze 9:1-7;Rev 7:1-4;9:4} Here in these end times, there are only going to be the remnant of righteous men of the house of Israel and the two witnesses. Their households will be saved by faith in Yache, while the rest of the men of Israel with their households will be given over to the rewards of unbelief. So one would not want to give one's daughter in marriage to the unbelieving Israelites to put her under the covering of a man that is not going to lead her to righteousness so that she may be saved. Brothers and sisters of the Gentiles, please take heed also and do not make any marriages with these unbelieving nations afore mentioned.

 

  • We have examples of how marrying unbelievers can lead to bad situations.

  1. David had a Canaanite wife named Maacah, a Geshurite, which led to the bad situation with Absolam who died with no sons.{II Sam 14:27; 18:15-18} Solomon's idolatrous Canaanite wife caused him to sin, Ahab caused all Israel to sin through Jezebel the Zidonian, and The inhabitants of Judah took strange wives after the Babylonian captivity in transgression [Neh13:23-27; Ezra 9:1;10:2-10] so we can understand that the enactment of ensuring one's spouse is a convert before marriage and  avoiding unbelievers are to ensure one's spouse does not turn one's self or one's children away from Alahayim

2 Samuel 3:3

3  And his second, Chileab, of Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite; and the third, Absalom the son of Maacah the daughter of Talmai king of Geshur;

2Sa 18:18  

Now Absalom in his lifetime had taken and reared up for himself a pillar, which is in the king's dale: for he said, I have no son to keep my name in remembrance: and he called the pillar after his own name: and it is called unto this day, Absalom's place. 

1Ki 16:30  

And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of Ahayah above all that were before him. 
1Ki 16:31  

And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him. 

Neh 13:23 

 In those days also saw I Jews that had married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, and of Moab: 
Neh 13:24 

 And their children spake half in the speech of Ashdod, and could not speak in the Jews' language, but according to the language of each people. 
Neh 13:25  

And I contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair, and made them swear by Alahayim, saying, Ye shall not give your daughters unto their sons, nor take their daughters unto your sons, or for yourselves. 
Neh 13:26  Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his Alahayim, and Alahayim made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin. 
Neh 13:27  Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our Alahayim in marrying strange wives? 

  • As we shall see, it was not a transgression for the 12 tribes (except Aaron' sons in special cases), to marry converted women of the nations. This is because the women belong to Ahayah and he gives them to whom he pleases. 

Gad the Seer Chapter 3​

1.At that time, at the feast of Passover, on the fifteenth of the first month, there came to David a Moabite shepherd who talked to him, saying “My Adọnọ the king, thou hast known that thy servant was good to Israel from his youth, and now take me from dwelling among uncircumcised people and circumcise the flesh of my foreskin to roll away my reproach, and I will sit among thy people.”

2.And David said: “AHAYAH does not want thy people, and He commanded
“An Ammonite or a Moabite shall not enter into the assembly of AHAYAH for ever.” and we can not seek thy peace nor thy prosperity; but what can I do for thee today?”
3.The servant answered: “Is it not that Ruth was of our people, and thou art one of her children and descendants, and AHAYAH has chosen thee and thy descendants for ever?”

4.Then said he: “Thou hast said defeating words. Stand here with me to ask from the mouth of my Adọnọ.”
5.And David asked AHAYAH about the words of the Moabite servant.

6.And David said: “Oh AHAYAH, AHAYAH of Hosts, teach me wondrous things out of thy Law so I will know the rule for the servant, and what shall be done with him.”
7.And AHAYAH said to Nathan the prophet: “Go to David my servant, and tell him the word that I tell thee.”
8.And Nathan went to David, to his room, saying: “Thus saith AHAYAH of Hosts: 'I have heard thy prayer, so tell the Moabite: 'It is a Moabite male thou art, not a Moabite female,
for I have not said Moabite female and Ammonite female, for their women and daughters belong to AHAYAH; however cursed are thee by AHAYAH, forbidding thee to enter the assembly of AHAYAH.”
9.When the Moabite heard the words of AHAYAH, he cried a great cry saying “I am prevented from entering the assembly of AHAYAH.”
10.And the king took him and appointed him shepherd among the shepherds of David, and he was there until the day when Solomon reigned over Israel, for three years, and he died.
11.And he had a daughter whose name was Sephirah; she was of beautiful form and fair to look upon. King Solomon took her to be his concubine, and she found grace and favor in his sight more than all the concubines, and she became the chief of the concubines’ residence.

12.And this was the rule in Israel for ever.

  • Now whatsoever thing the law says is for our admonition and wisdom, the law instructs the Israelites not to make alliances with the children of Ham by commandment of Isaac our father. This means that we do not give them our daughters in marriage. {Gen 34:8-9} There is a reason we were given the command: The children of Ham are going to be servants in the kingdom (Praise Ahayah for his mercy on them to be in the kingdom.) We are not to give our daughters unto them because she would be excluded from partaking in the heritage of her tribe in the kingdom because she is counted under the inheritance of Ham in the kingdom if she is married to one of them. If a Hebrewess is married to a Hamite, she will be under her husband in servitude in the kingdom, while the Hebrews and their households will rule under Yache in the Kingdom. It would be inexpedient after having spent our time in this world in bondage, to give her unto the children of Ham to be a servant in the next world as well. Of course if a woman is already married to one of the children of Ham, before coming into the knowledge of the truth, do not leave your husband, because what Alahayim has put together let no man put asunder. {Matt 19:3-6} We are called as we are {I Cor 7:20} and it would be a transgression of the law to divorce him since he has not committed fornication. {Matt 19:9} If he is a believer, you still get to partake in the kingdom. Only take heed to abide in the faith if he is an unbeliever that he may repent. And if he departs, take heed not marry anymore children of Ham now that you are aware of the law. Beware believers of all nations, of marrying any person that is an idolater no matter what nation they are from because they will cause you to turn away from Ahayah Alahayim. Solomon is the example of how idolatrous women will cause one's downfall. {1 Kings 11:1-8} Nabal is the example for the women of how a wicked husband, Jew or Gentile, can get you in danger too. {1 Sam 25:3} A wicked husband can also get you killed by evidence of Korah. {Num 16:26-33} Ananias and Sapphira is an example of what will happen if both husband and wife are unbelievers, they shall perish together in their unbelief. {Acts 5:1-11} If one is already married, either spouse, to an unbeliever and they be pleased to dwell with you, continue in the faith and bear fruit in hopes that your spouse will be converted to believe the Gospel, but if they depart in their unbelief, you are free to marry another, who is a believer and not one of the nations mentioned in the "unlawful marriage" section. { I Cor 7:12-16} 

1. The 12 tribes of Israel: male and female are prohibited from marrying the unbelieving sons or daughters of Canaan. We are also admonished not giving our daughters to the sons of Ham by making an alliance as was mentioned prior. Here are the scriptures:
Jasher 24:30

And Abraham said to him, Behold I am old, I do not know the day of my death; for I am advanced in days; now therefore rise up, go forth and do not take a wife for my son from this place and from this land, from the daughters of the Canaanites amongst whom we dwell.
Jubilee 25:1

And in the second year of this week in this jubilee, Rebecca called Jacob her son, and spoke to him, saying: 'My son, do not take you a wife of the daughters of Canaan, as Esau, your brother, who took him two wives of the daughters of Canaan, and they have embittered my soul with all their unclean deeds: for all their deeds are fornication and lust, and there is no righteousness with them, for (their deeds) are evil.
Jasher 73:33-35

[33] For Moses remembered how Abraham made his servant Eliezer swear, saying unto him, Thou shalt not take a woman from the daughters of Canaan for my son Isaac.

[34] Also what Isaac did when Jacob had fled from his brother, when he commanded him, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan, nor make alliance with any of the children of Ham.

[35] For Ahayah our Alahayim gave Ham the son of Noah, and his children and all his seed, as slaves to the children of Shem and to the children of Japheth, and unto their seed after them for slaves, forever.

  • We saw earlier how once a Gentile in the flesh is converted they could be married. Now concerning Israel after the flesh, we have to understand that not all is Israel is of Israel either. The unrighteous of our people are esteemed as Gentiles when they die because of their uncircumcised hearts.

Romans 2:25

25  For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. (If we are sinners we are reckoned as uncircumcised, which means we are sinners of the gentiles. The Gentiles that are circumcised of heart are righteous and they would be reckoned above us.)

Romans 2:28-29

28  For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

29  But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of Alahayim (Real Israelites are according after the Spirit in the circumcision of the heart. They are the seed of Israel. It is lawful to marry them.)

Romans 9:6

6  Not as though the word of Alahayim hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: (Now we understand how not everyone of the bloodline is actually of the seed of Israel because those who are sinners are counted as uncircumcised in heart gentiles.)

Jubilee 44:33-34

33  And all the souls of Jacob which went into Egypt were seventy souls.

These are his children and his children's children, in all seventy, but five died in Egypt before Joseph, and had no children. (the 5 died for their sins even as our people are still being cut off for our sins to this day.)

34 And in the land of Canaan two sons of Judah died, Er and Onan, and they had no children, and the children of Israel buried those who perished, and they were reckoned among the seventy Gentile nations. (This is the key verse to understand how that sinners of our people are reckoned among the Gentiles when they die.)

.

  • Concerning the women of the house of Israel, we are instructed not to give our women in marriage to the Gentiles in the flesh (unbelievers), nor to the Israelites of uncircumcised hearts who will be reckoned among the Gentiles in the flesh because of their corrupt spirit. We are only to give the women in marriage to the brethren in Christ Yache of the Hebrews and Gentiles, excluding the children of Ham. Our men are admonished in the precepts as well to marry Sisters (Hebrews and Gentiles) in truth, not the uncircumcised of heart who walk in the ways of the flesh and will be reckoned as Gentiles. Hebrew sisters concerning marriage, it is more profitable to marry a believing Israelite man, so that one may partake in the inheritance of our fathers. For if you marry a righteous brother of the Gentile's bloodline, you would be allotted in the inheritance of the Gentile being under his house in the kingdom. Concerning the Saints of the Gentiles, be admonished not to marry any Gentiles according to the flesh or spirit who are not of the seed of Yache according to the spirit by evidence of keeping the law, fruits, and believing on His name. Abstain from the unbelieving males of the nations that are prophesied to perish as well that were mentioned in the unlawful marriage segment.  Saints of the Gentiles that are fathers, be mindful of the Hebrews according to the flesh and give not your daughters to them because of their uncircumcised hearts, which will lead your daughter astray, but only give them unto the covering of a Brother, Gentile or Hebrew, in Spirit and Truth that believes in Yache, keep the commandments and bears fruit, so that she may be saved from the wrath to come. 

Jubilee 30:5-15

5 And thus let it not again be done from henceforth that a daughter of Israel be defiled; for judgment is ordained in heaven against them that they should destroy with the sword all the men of the Shechemites because they had wrought shame in Israel

6. And AHAYAH delivered them into the hands of the sons of Jacob that they might exterminate them with the sword and execute judgment upon them, and that it might not thus again be done in Israel that a virgin of Israel should be defiled.

7 And if there is any man who wishes in Israel to give his daughter or his sister to any man who is of the seed of the Gentiles he shall surely die, and they shall stone him with stones; for he has wrought shame in Israel ; and they shall burn the woman with fire, because she has dishonored the name of the house of her father, and she shall be rooted out of Israel . (Any man who gives a woman to an idolater or a woman who marries an idolater will perish in the end.)

8 And let not an adulteress and no uncleanness be found in Israel throughout all the days of the generations of the earth; for Israel is Holy unto AHAYAH , and every man who has defiled it shall surely die: they shall stone him with stones.  

9 For thus has it been ordained and written in the heavenly tablets regarding all the seed of Israel: he who defiles it shall surely die, and he shall be stoned with stones.

10 And to this Torah there is no limit of days, and no remission, nor any atonement: but the man who has defiled his daughter shall be rooted out in the midst of all Israel, because he has given of his seed to Moloch, and wrought impiously so as to defile it. (This substantiates giving one's child to an idolater is defiling one's seed unto Satan.)

11 And do you, Moses, command the children of Israel and exhort them not to give their daughters to the Gentiles, and not to take for their sons any of the daughters of the Gentiles, for this is abominable before AHAYAH. (Please refer to "are all Gentiles the same" to understand who the Gentiles are in truth.)

12 For this reason I have written for you in the words of the Torah all the deeds of the Shechemites, which they wrought against Dinah, and how the sons of Jacob spoke, saying: 'We will not give our daughter to a man who is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach unto us.' (Any marriage to any person of uncircumcised heart {Jer 9:26} is a reproach to us because it is not the seed of the spirit of Yache that our son or daughter is being united with, so we would be uniting them to an harlot.{I Cor 6:16-17} Real Jew {Rom 2:28-29} and Real Gentile Brethren {Col 2:11-13} are circumcised in heart.)

13 And it is a reproach to Israel, to those who live, and to those that take the daughters of the Gentiles; for this is unclean and abominable to Israel. (Remember, what Alahayim has cleansed, call not thou unclean {Acts 10:28}, so the Believers of the Gentiles don't fall into this category, but the unbelievers of Israel do.{Jub 44:34;Rom 2:25})

14 And Israel will not be free from this uncleanness if it has a wife of the daughters of the Gentiles, or has given any of its daughters to a man who is of any of the Gentiles.

15 For there will be plague upon plague, and curse upon curse, and every judgment and plague and curse will come: if he do this thing, or hide his eyes from those who commit uncleanness, or those who defile the sanctuary of AHAYAH, or those who profane His Holy NAME, (then) will the whole nation together be judged for all the uncleanness and profanation of this man. (The sanctuary is the Church, which is spiritual, hence if anyone, Hebrew or Gentile, marries an idolater, one is defiling the Sanctuary {I Cor 6:15-20} because an idolater (unbeliever) is a spiritual fornicator {Wisdom of Solomon 14:12} against Yache, which makes them an harlot in spirit. {Eze 16:15-34} Thus, if one marries them, one will be joined unto a harlot that will separate one from Yache,{I Cor 6:16} which is a result of being unequally yoked with unbelievers.{II Cor 6:14-18} So we, who are believers & stones of the Temple of Ahayah have no agreement with the temple of Idols, which is those, Hebrew or Gentile, who do not believe and obey the Gospel of Yache.{II Cor 6:16})

1 Corinthians 6:15

15  Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? Alahayim forbid.

Wisdom of Solomon 14:12

12 For the devising of idols was the beginning of spiritual fornication, and the invention of them the corruption of life.

(Please read Ezekiel 16, it really gives a good understanding of how Ahayah is not pleased with Spiritual fornication.)

1 Corinthians 6:16-20

16  What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

16  What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

17  But he that is joined unto the Adono is one spirit.

18  Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

19  What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have of Alahayim, and ye are not your own?

20  For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify Alahayim in your body, and in your spirit, which are Alahayim's.

2 Corinthians 6:16-18

16  And what agreement hath the temple of Alahayim with idols? for ye are the temple of the living Alahayim; as Alahayim hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their Alahayim, and they shall be my people.

17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith Ahayah, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

18  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith Ahayah Almighty

Now that we understand the lawful as oppose to unlawful marriages, let us be mindful not to defile the temple of Alahayim.

Jubilee 30:15-15

15 For there will be plague upon plague, and curse upon curse, and every judgment and plague and curse will come: if he do this thing, or hide his eyes from those who commit uncleanness, or those who defile the sanctuary of AHAYAH, or those who profane His Holy NAME, (then) will the whole nation together be judged for all the uncleanness and profanation of this man.

Jubilee 30:16

16 And there will be no respect of persons [and no consideration of persons] and no receiving at his hands of fruits and offerings and burnt-offerings and fat, nor the fragrance of sweet savor, so as to accept it: and so fare every man or woman in Israel who defiles the sanctuary.

 

Israelite Sisters, we exhort you according to the testimonies of our fathers, to pray fervently that Ahayah place you under the covering of a righteous man in these times to come. It would be a shame according to our father's records for you to be under another nation. There will be the remnant of the sons of Israel in these end times, and we exhort you to pray for Ahayah to be gracious that you may be saved from the wrath to come upon the sinners of Israel first, and then the sinners of the Gentiles. Sisters of the Gentiles, we exhort you as dear sisters as well to fervently pray that Ahayah place you under the covering of a righteous man. Focus on the things of the Lord Yache and being holy in body and spirit until, if Ahayah wills, He place you in the care of one of the sons of Abraham by faith. 

1Co 7:34  

There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband. 

Men of Israel and Brothers of the Gentiles, pray that we be cleaved unto Yache unto life eternal, for we all have One Adono (master), even Yache the Righteous, so let us all cleave in love to him focusing on good works, studying the  law, and our labours until Ahayah give us a wife whom He wills.

Testament of Reuben 4:1

Pay no heed, therefore, my children, to the beauty of women, nor set your mind on their affairs; but walk in singleness of heart in the fear of Adonoye, and expend labour on good works, and on study and on your flocks, until Adonoye give you a wife, whom He will , that ye suffer not as I did.
