The Spiritual Warning Attached To Adultery

Adultery is a grievous offence in the sight of God and man, and anyone who commits adultery is a sinner and have sinned against God. Most people just go on with their life as if nothing is wrong with this act. The Bible kicked against adultery in several Bible verses with a strong warning. You as a married man you are expected to stick to your partner for life and not share your body.

Proverbs 6:32 says “But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his soul.” As a man, you are expected to remain faithful, stick to your wife and remain married to her. Don't say, it is the nature of a man to cheat; that isn't what God says about you, rather his warnings are clear that if you cheat as a man, you destroy your soul.

Let get something clear; before you were married, your body is the temple of God, and when you became married also, your body remain his temple as well, but this time, your body also belongs to your partner alone because you have become one in Christ Jesus Christ through Holy Matrimony.

When the Bible kick against a certain thing, it becomes a spiritual warning. The book of Romans 12:1 says “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” This is a warning that as a married person present your body holy and presentable to God.

God is interested in your body being holy. Adultery makes your body unholy. You are not only defiling your marriage but your body which is the temple of God. Recall, I said when you become married you and your partner become one, and God sees you two as one became you have joined together in his sight as one. Therefore, committing adultery is defiling that one body which is that of your partner and yourself.

The book of Exodus 20:14 says “Thou shalt not commit adultery.” This is God speaking in the old testament to his people. Both men and women were warned in the Bible against committing adultery. Marriage is spiritual and must be kept spiritual as well. Anyone who commits adultery also breaks the grace of God upon their marriage and expose such marriage to demonic attacks.

Let this not be part of you as a married man or woman. Understand that God is interested in your body and he doesn't want you to defile it in any way. No matter how much you want to lust after someone, also remember that you are married and the spiritual warning attached to adultery is destruction.

As a woman, always be conscious of the book of Mark 10:12 which says “And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery,” and as a man, always be conscious of the book of Proverb 6:32. Adultery is a sin in the sight of God hence, there is a spiritual warning attached to it in the Bible.
