Divorcing The Spirit Of Adultery - John 8:3-12

God created you in His own image. "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Genesis 1:27

A sin decision will create within you a sin image to destroy God’s scriptural image of who you are.

Sin and an anti-scriptural divorce against God are like bedbugs. It just takes one sin act or an anti-scriptural act and before you know it you will have a spiritual infestation in your salvation bed within your “temple” sucking out the blood coverage of Jesus Christ out of your salvation promise. "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7

The sin infestation will cause you to be spiritually useless, scripturally mummified, and scripturally deaf to the word of God. Sin will leave you scripturally dumb because you cannot speak the word over your own life, scripturally deaf because you cannot even hear God speaking to you, scripturally blind because you are so blind to the sin you have committed and scripturally dead to the word of God. "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

Sometimes, we must divorce our past sin dispositions.

Jesus was setting up the atmosphere to pluck this woman of great potential out of her circumstances who had the “issues of life”; lifestyle called adultery. “This woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.” Her story was about being psychologically robbed of her identity as a woman by the spirit of adultery.  She was enslaved by the spirit of adultery transitioning her from an invisible perspective to become physically visible to confront her issue. 

Jesus was indirectly saying to her, as it is written: “for I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” Jeremiah 29:11

"The scribes and Pharisees” secured her position that day "to give (her) an expected end”.

The biblical depiction and accounts were careful to carve out her entire history and her accounts in John 8:3-12; “ And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” 

Her encounter with Jesus was a salvation connection, connecting her back to God her creator.

Jesus was speaking to this woman and God demonstrated unconditional love declaration which was eternally honoured and offered to her. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

Jesus was speaking to this woman's spirit that was broken and he engaged with her soul to spiritually override her life as Jesus, in a very indirect way, was asking her: do you know who you are?

Jesus was saying; you have not yet realized you are an awesome woman, you are spiritually beautiful and you were “wonderfully made” by God for such a time like this.

Her interaction with Jesus was an affirmation that a change in her life was going to come.

Her change ignited imprints of scriptural character reconstruction causing and effecting her own ministry of reconciliation. "And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;” 2 Corinthians 5:18

Her transformation process was a faith walk regardless of her story to partnership with God through the eyes of Jesus to change her sin disposition.

This woman of courage had the “character capacity” to divorce her previous lifestyle, divorce her shame, divorce her guilt, divorce her past choices, divorce her hurt, divorce her brokenness, divorce her state of attention seeking and to divorce her state of ongoing rejection from others. 

She had to divorce the spirit of depression, divorce the spirit of abuse and she was determined to divorce the spirit of low self-esteem. Jesus taught her the importance of divorcing religiosity oppression.  She refused to be a victim or to be victimized by the spirit of adultery as she held her head up high minute by minute to divorce the generational curse upon her future children’s life by saying JESUS! Self-declaring there is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain off her past, present and future generation blood lines.

This woman knew it was her time to divorce her self-perception she had of herself, divorce her non- forgiveness, divorce her sexual addictions and she was able to divorce her need to look for love all in the wrong places.

She knew without a shadow of a doubt, by divorcing the spirit of adultery which was a self-crime against herself, by divorcing the invisible sexual spiritual warfare realm of fornication/adultery, by divorcing the god of adultery and the anti-scriptural sexual army of darkness that consist of air, land, and and sea. Upon stopping the sin act of adultery, lust, promiscuity, sexual service without any money being rendered to her, purpose was scripturally realized in her self-emancipated commitment. Her scriptural DNA became her Isaiah 54:17 scriptural covenant promise stating; "no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgement thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord” 

This woman by faith walked into her purpose immediately who was able to divorce all named and unnamed words of negativity that was spoken over her life. She was empowered by Jesus who was able to divorce all her weaknesses and she was able to internally listen to what "Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more." John 8:11

She knew the sin of adultery would spiritually imprison her blessings. 

Jesus scripturally equipped her to divorce the community naysayers who wanted to stone her to death, as some of the men in this particular community were actively having sex with her who were also exposed in their determination to judge her. "Judge not, that ye be not judged. "For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." Matthew 7:1-8

When you divorce God, God will sin divorce you too. 1 Peter 1:16 is clear "Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy"

If you are a Christian; sin is not okay, divorcing God is not okay and sin is not your identity. Actively participating in a sexual sin decision when you are not married will sexually estrange you from God and sexual sin is divisional causing an estranging process to take place estranging you from your scriptural self-worth.

"But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work. Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.” 2 Timothy 2:20-23

No matter what you have done, God is still saying "go, and sin no more”

This woman had to unlearn to scripturally learn what it scripturally means to be a Proverbs 31 woman.

She scripturally recognized, she was truly blessed and she understood “blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake (is a beginning of a courtship with God) . Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you” including Jesus. Matthew 5:11-12  

Her encounter with Jesus became her 2 Corinthians 12:9 strength: And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

This ex-adulteress who was a sinner had a 1 John 1:9 knowledge revelation; "If (I) confess (my) sins, he is faithful and just to forgive (me) our sins, and to cleanse (me) from all unrighteousness.”

Her confession was her redemption, she had to learn to forgive the unforgivable starting with self and to speak about the unspeakable sin of adultery. She had to scripturally master Luke 6:37, "judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.” 

This ex-adulteress who was deep in sin is asking you and I right now, “Where would you be” without Jesus? 

What is your "Issues of life”, can you list them and are you willing to divorce them now?
"Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” Proverbs 4:23
