Alicia May 17, at 4: I decided to search for this topic on your site, since I am a believer married to an unbeliever. It is amazing how true the scripture is on this topic. It is definitely difficult having different beliefs and views. With completely different moral views, it will be a challenge. Satan sure is a good deceiver! I just want to thank you for writing this article for people that are seeking answers on this subject. I will continue to pray for my husband, and will be patiently hoping for God to show him the light and love he offers.
Jack Wellman May 17, at You are right to see prayer as the only true source of change for your husband for Satan is a deceiver for sure but I pray others will join us in praying for your husband to repent and see his need for a Savior in Jesus Christ and trust in Him.
Please,is this true that christian and muslim worshiping thesame God? Jack Wellman May 21, at There is no other way to God and to heaven than thru Jesus alone. Even the demons believe—and shudder! If you are a Christian, you are commanded to not be unequally yoked and must cut off this relationship or God will not be pleased. You must seek first and above all things, the Kingdom and His righteousness Matt 6: Laurence September 3, at 6: I had loved a non believer once.
I believe in Jesus Christ. Unfortunately, she does not. I am keep putting in my mind that God has a purpose why I met that person- and that is to show to that person the gospel of God and to tell that Jesus Christ is our only way to be save. I even thought to myself, that God, maybe, used me as an instrument so that I could introduce Jesus Christ to that person. Many have commented that it is better to leave that person the non believers.
I am wondered why they are giving up that easily for the person they love. Introducing Jesus Christ may be hard to accept for someone. But Since I really love that person, as much as I wanted that person to have salvation, I will do my best though I know that it will not be a big deal to that person to introduce to her the greatness of God. I think God will be please more if there is a one person in this planet that you had change from non believer to a believer. I also belived that Love knows no boudary.
I think I will just pray that I could turn that person into a believer, if not in this planet, perhaps in another lifetime. Jack Wellman September 3, at I agree that we can pray for a person who is not saved but God alone decides who is saved Eph 1,2 and so God is the one who brings people to Christ John 6: I am sorry you do not agree to 2 Corinthians 6: We can not change anyone on this or any other planet but God can Prov God is pleased when we obey Him 2 Corinthians 6: Anita Hampton January 9, at 1: My Mom was my best friend she passed away suddenly in She left me a legacy-Taste Nita taste and see how good God is.
She really loved the Lord and because of this scripture i have become more dependent on Jesus. However -I think im impatient-What i pray for never materialises. I want to stop smoking cigarettes,I need a scipture that i can turn to -to overcome this habit. I really would like my nountain of debt to dissappear-And i would really like a partner.
Im not sure -But Jesus is listening to me i think. Please assist me with scriptures. Your article on unqually yoked. However can 1 pray that the mind and heart be equally yoked to the Holy Spirit.
That they become 1? Jack Wellman January 9, at 5: I am sorry for such heartache my friend. I love your comment about being equally yoked with the Holy Spirt. Brilliant and thank you so much. Let me instead of one or two Scriptures, direct you to an article that may give you help with the smoking addiction at this link: Anita Hampton January 10, at 3: I printed the article and have a weekend to read it and be encouraged by it.
Ive learnt that in all things i must trust the Lord. But there comes a time when im so desparate to hear another voice someone that answers me immediately-I miss having conversations. Almost always-I hear people say how God has blessed them-And it pains me no end that there blessings is over and above anything that i can possibly imagine. So i am being hesitant and i dare say reluctant to step out grasp Jesus hand and say lead me Lord-Here am i.
Its almost a case of better the devil you know than the devil you dont know-No disrespect intended-And this bothers me no end. For that reason i questioned whether my heart and my can be equally yoked to that of the Holy Spirit. Natuarally my comment didnt come from me. That must have been the holy spirit. So i cant understand why it is that im struggling to let go-Knowing how Good God has been to me. It seems to me -That im waiting on the Lord silently and doing nothing-im just waiting While the Holy Spirit is waiting on ME-So im not sure whos waiting on whom and why is that anyone is waiting and not doing!!
I need to break some kind of strong hold thats on or over my life-That whatever it is thats holding me back needs to be revealed and severed. But i dont know what it is yet i can feel it sometimes.
Anita Hampton January 10, at 4: What is the Holy Spirits Yoke. I never understood that. The analogy of cattle being yoked together to plogh a farmand that they should be of the same species,makes sense to me. But the scripture Mathew 11 vs Says: For my yoke is easy but my burden is light. A friend of mine asked me to explain this scripture and i didnt convince myself. Jack Wellman January 10, at 8: Also, a yoke was usually held or the burden shared by two oxen and so if Jesus is asking you to take on His yoke, He is saying that it better to have Him take some of the load off during our trials and sorrows than to go it alone.
It is easy to do this because we must bring our heavy burdens to Him and lay them at His feet and plead for His aid to should the weight. Does this make sense Anita? Thank you for such a great question. Ella April 1, at I was having my daily devotions and came upon this verse and it seems as if the Lord is warning me not to be yoked with unbelievers. This verse, however does not apply to marriage in my situation now. I have bestfriends who are, technically speaking, unbelievers because they are not really followers of Christ so therefore they are not Christians.
They believe in God but like you said thats not the same with being truly a Christian. I know what the Lord is saying. I understand it but i think there is just something in me thats not letting the message to directly go through in me. I am not sure now if the Lord is telling me not to go or just warning me to be careful when I am aroun them since if I desire to be a light in their lives, I also need to be their in their life. I really appreciate the article you made.
Praying for you Mr. Jack, may God bless you more and use your abilities more for His greater glory. Jack Wellman April 2, at 9: I do hope you will keep the relationship open for the sake of those who are not yet saved but you already have a good understanding about what this article was saying.
I pray you are salt and light to a dead, decaying, and dark world for the glory of God. Fefe April 15, at 7: I just want to say thank you for putting this article out there. Later after God called me back and I got a clearer understanding of His word, I realized that my husband and I were unequally yoked and that was the reason for all of our hardship in the marriage.
It just seemed like everything I was for he was against and vice versa. He was even upset about me re-dedicating my life to the Lord. Eventually, it seemed like there was no more support, affection, respect, or trust left in the marriage. Jack Wellman April 16, at Let me say that this may affect your salvation but not take it away. As I normally first of all recommend, I would ask God to send the Holy Spirit to him to convict him of his sin and if he is not saved, then to repent and trust in Christ since God is the evangelist and He alone can change a heart Prov
