Jesus and the Common Law Wife
To again show that original wives arenâ€™t the only ones blessed by the Lord, let me refer to the Bible, which the strict
monogamists avoid reading nor understanding. For if you look at the very life of Jesus, you should soon realize which
person, Jesus revealed his divine nature to....Was it an eunuch or a virgin?...No. Was it to a husband of one wife ?...No.
Was it to an original certified wife? ...No. It was to a woman that had five husbands and the man she was with at the time
Jesus met her at the well was not her husband. (John 4)
In other words, she could hardly be considered the holy religious image of purity, for as we would say now, she was
merely a common-law wife who had had five previous marriages. Yet it was to her that Jesus said â€˜But the hour cometh
and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to
worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (verse 23-24) â€œ She
said, â€œI know that Messias cometh which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus said to her â
€œI that speak unto thee am he.â€� So Jesus told her before anyone else that he was the Christ, and she became the
faithful witness by going into the city and telling others.
So Jesus didnâ€™t reveal himself to a goody two shoes, holy sanctimonious type but to a real life sinner with a good
believing heart and its only these same type of people whether single or married, celibrate or active, that the Lord has
reached ever since. I mean, she wasnâ€™t even a Jew , but a Samaritan at that, which shows again that Jesus didnâ€™t
have a chosen race and therefore wasnâ€™t a racist nor a sexist nor a churchie. He believed in the heart and soul and saw
past this womanâ€™s past to her believing heart which is why He choose her.
So enough said, it is blatantly obvious that the Lord doesnâ€™t judge us according to the number of wives we have, or
the number of husbands we have had or lovers we have had or don't have, but whether or not we have chosen Him and in
essence become His Bride in Spirit and in Truth
Love in Jesus
