The seventh Commandment, not to commit adultery, in whatever state ones and ones are in, if you (INI) keep YHWH in your(INI) heart, mind and soul; if you (INI) have been brought in, or even if in your (INI) environment and your (INI) surroundings, in reality you (INI) have been exiled, you (INI) are commanded not to commit adultery. To commit adultery is to commit conjugal infidelity. A man who had illicit intercourse with a married or a betrothed woman, commits adultery. A married woman who had illicit intercourse with a man is an adulteress. Intercourse between a married man and an unmarried woman was fornication. Adultery was and is regarded as a great social wrong, a great sin. The Mosaic law ( Numbers 5:11-31 ) 11 And YHWH spoke unto Moses, saying, 12 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man’s wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him, 13 And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband, and be kept close, and she be defiled, and there be no witness against her, neither she be taken with the manner; 14 And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled: 15 Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance. 16 And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before YHWH: 17 And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water: 18 And the priest shall set the woman before YHWH, and uncover the woman’s head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causes the curse: 19 And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that cause the curse: 20 But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee beside thine husband: 21 Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, YHWH make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when YHWH doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell; 22 And this water that causes the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, Amen, amen. 23 And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot them out with the bitter water: 24 And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causes the curse: and the water that causes the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter. 25 Then the priest shall take the jealousy offering out of the woman’s hand, and shall wave the offering before YHWH, and offer it upon the altar: 26 And the priest shall take an handful of the offering, even the memorial thereof, and burn it upon the altar, and afterward shall cause the woman to drink the water. 27 And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causes the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people. 28 And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed.29 This is the law of jealousies, when a wife goes aside to another instead of her husband, and is defiled; 30 Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he be jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before YHWH, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law. 31 Then shall the man be guiltless from iniquity, and this woman shall bear her iniquity. Numbers/Bamidbar 5:11-31, prescribes that the suspected wife should be tried by the trial of the “water of jealousy.”
Rabbis made various regulations to view and discover the guilty party, and of bringing about a divorce. It has been concluded from John 8:1-11 –
John 8:1-11 Yahoshua went unto the mount of Olives. 2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. 3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, 4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what does thou say?
6 This they said, tempting him,that they might have to accuse him. But Yahoshua stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. 7 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. 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9 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 Yahoshua was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Yahoshua had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those that accuse you? hath no man condemned thee? 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Yahoshua said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
Sin of adultery became very common during the age preceding the destruction of Jerusalem.
Idolatry, covetousness, and apostasy are spoken of as adultery spiritually ( Jeremiah 3:6 Jeremiah 3:8 Jeremiah 3:9 ; Ezekiel 16:32 ; Hosea 1:2:3; ; Revelation 2:22 ). An apostate church is an adulteress ( Isaiah 1:21 ; Ezek. Isaiah 23:4 Isaiah 23:7 Isaiah 23:37 ),
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:”an adulterous generation” ( Matthew 12:39 ).
(Revelation 12) And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. 5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto YHWH, and to his throne. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of Elohim, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our Power, and the power of his Annointed: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our Adonai day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he hath but a short time. 13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. 14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of YHWH, and have the testimony of Yahoshua Ben YHWH.
At the highest levels in mind, body, (spirit) ruach and reality you (INI) are commanded to keep Yahoshua Ben YHWH, YHWH Eloheinu, Igzi Abher, HIM Qedamawi Haile Selassie I, Menfes Kedus, Ruach Kadesh, Divine Mother in spirit, in TRuth, and YHWH’s will, in reality. How can The Most High be lifted up in Highest esteem, how can true love manifest if we(INI) commit adultery?
It is only YHWH’s people, the True Israelites, who are spoken of in Devarim/Deuteronomy 28:15-68, who are the children of YHWH whom YHWH said that YHWH Elohim would curse. If and when YHWH is angry with you (INI) YHWH will remove you(INI) and or remove YHWH’s presence. In the absence of YHWHs presence, evil will abound. Black and white goyin and gentile nations will seek to deceive, steal from, kill, destroy, and distract YHWH’s people. Seen and or unseen, known and or unknown, one would become blind to the point that almost anyone who would show you (INI) an “act” of kindness you (INI) might think, “O, that one or this one is in spirit (ruach), Truth and reality-YHWH”. BEWARE, many false ones come and will come as “YHWH” in sheep’s clothing but inside, they are ravenous wolves.
Within YHWH’s (INI) marriage, children, family we (INI) are never to remove Jerusalem from our (INI) hearts and minds. Whatever level of life, one may be, if you (INI) are blessed with marriage, children, family and, or not, we are commanded not to commit adultery. We, Messianic Ethiopian Hebrew Israelite Rastafari are to stand as examples of YHWH’s judgment, righteousness and goodness. Daily we are in battles. We are in spiritual battle! We war not against flesh and blood but against principles and principalities of darkness in high places.
Falasha’s near and far, YHWH’s WORD, Isaiah 54:7, “For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee”. If you (INI) know the TRUE TRUTH, then you (INI) know imposters who say they are, but are not. If you, (INI) cleave to YHWH in ruach, and TRuth, YHWH’s Word, is that with “great mercies” THE TRUE YHWH, YAHOSHUA BEN YHWH, THE TRUE ELOHEINU, THE TRUE IGZI ABHER, THE TRUE IMPERIAL MAGESTY QEDAMAWI HAILE SELASSIE, THE TRUE MENFES KEDUS, THE TRUE RUACH KADESH, THE TRUE DIVINE MOTHER, in spirit, truth and reality will accept, receive, gather you, INI in. True Love! Blessings!
Falashas, You (INI) may feel abandoned, lost and alone in exile. KEEP YHWH, in your (INI) heart, mind, soul, words and deeds by keeping the Commandments. If YHWH presence has been removed, from you (IN), you (INI) repent, seek and keep YHWH’s Word, YHWH’s Word is Truth, faithful, in grace. Punished and or disciplined because of disobedience, you (INI) may feel like a sister/brother, daughter/son, wife/husband, mother/father-less child, so very far from home…..Humbled, repent, stop, give thanks and praises to YHWH; wait on YHWH. Wait, for forgiveness, for all the good that YHWH, has and does provide, all the blessings that YHWH provides, even when and after YHWH punishes. The punishment was because of sin, transgression, missing the mark, falling short. In so doing, you (INI) are and will be blessed by not committing adultery.
If INI used to commit harlotry, fall short, sin, intentionally and or not, ones and ones may try to entice you to go back to that way of life, and or hold you down and or back because of who YHWH’s people (INI) were and or what YHWH’s people (INI) used to do. Your past, reports and or claims do not define who you are today. When you have been born again and keep the Commandments, if others seek to entice you back into sin, INI must be and, rise, raise up, stand up, in spirit, truth and reality. Even if they do lie about you (INI) , on you (INI), and or to you,(INI) , YHWH will hold them accountable. Once they are held accountable, YHWH, forgives them, as you (INI) are forgiven, and rise. So shall we (INI) forgive them after they have been held accountable.
True Love . True Blessings. -If you(INI) are YHWH’s and YHWH is yours (INI’s), you, INI shall not commit adultery!
