8/18/16 Stay As You Are To Avoid The Hardship To Come

“In the same way that I instructed you regarding marriage between believers and unbelievers, I now instruct you regarding your unmarried daughters and widows.  I have no direct instruction from Jesus, but I speak as one who has been given authority to teach His people.  Jesus has told us to be ready for His return at any moment, and that when the time comes for Him to return, there will be more trouble in the world than could ever be imagined.  Since we are to live as though Jesus is coming back at any moment, here is what I would advise you to do.  Stay just as you are, if you are able to do so without temptation to sin overcoming you.  If you are married, stay married, and do not separate from your spouse.  If you are unmarried, stay unmarried, and do not look for a spouse.  My reason for saying this is not to say that marriage is sinful.  On the contrary, it is a gift from God that is to be cherished.  I only wish to help you to avoid the disaster that is to come when Jesus returns to us, because this time of disaster will be much worse for people who are married and have families to care for.”
