If the Lord were to save them, he would give them a new power to enable them to joyfully live in honour of their marriage vows and obligations. There is a failure to counsel people with biblical principles of marriage.
Women who were calling in to that radio programme, talking about constant fights with their husbands, were not being asked whether they were observing the biblical blueprint for healthy marriage relationships.
If I have longed to meet President Obama, I am likely to dream that I am having a meal with him and his wife, Michelle, at the White House. Dreams simply live out the wishes and fears of our lives. There is a failure to handle moral issues the way the Bible handles them.
Those involved in sexual sin are being told that the blame is on spiritual husbands or wives and all they need is deliverance.
What shall I call this teaching about spiritual husbands (and wives), which is in vogue today here in Africa? Spiritual husbands are changing shape and showing up in all kinds of places at night.
Even when these false teachers use the Bible, they wrest it out of its context.
If you have either seen yourself swimming (for the most stubborn ones are marine spirits), or missing your menstrual period, or becoming pregnant, or breastfeeding, or vomiting, or going shopping or having sex with a man who is not your husband, or having a miscarriage, or getting married, or about to get killed in a dream, then this is sure evidence that a spiritual husband has entered into your life. If the “man of God” tells you that you are having dreams in which you are having sex with someone and you deny it, he then tells you that your spiritual husband wipes it off your memory through demonic manipulation.
If I am longing for a job, I am likely to dream that one day I land myself the job of my dreams.
There was a preacher speaking on a live radio programme.
He was evidently campaigning for an overnight prayer meeting that was scheduled to take place at his church the next day.
It is also the case if you are getting on in years and no man is seriously approaching you for marriage.
It means you have a spiritual husband blocking other men.
