Sister Roxanna: Brother I want to ask you: ¿What can I do since my husband has tried to kill me?
Brother Brian: ¿Did he try to kill you, sister Roxanna?
Sister Roxanna: Yes, brother. He has tried to suffocate me several times.
Bro. Brian: ¿Is he a junkie, sister?
Sister Roxanna: No, but as a child he had a bad life, since his stepfather punished him. And that’s why he’s so violent, bitter he ventures with my baby and me.
Brother Eli: Sister Roxanna, it seems that your husband doesn’t love you, because that is the first commandment for a husband in the true church. I always emphasize that, because the commandments, the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ, are addressed to the men of God, to the true church. 3:15 first Timothy:
1 Timothy 3:15
but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
I write so that you may know how you may know how you ought to conduct yourself, a person, a man, in the house of God, which is the church of God in the Bible. It’s the only true church taught by Our Lord Jesus Christ and the apostles. And the apostles preached in the time, when our Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven.
The true church is the church in the Bible. The teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ are addressed to the church of God’s people. Let’s read 2 Timothy 3:17
2 Timothy 3:17
so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
So that the servant of God, the man of God is in the church, may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. Every good work is taught in the Bible to the church.
You cannot throw the teachings and place first, the churches founded by men, because it is not allowed by God that no one establishes his own church, as is happening in today’s time: there are pastors or religious leaders who are establishing their own church as the apostle Paul said in Romans chapter 10 verse 3:
Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.
Sought to establish their own, own church, own justice, own teachings, etc., etc. They did not submit to God’s righteousness. That is why they are outside the righteousness of God, outside the church that God Himself established.
Now, sister, the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, led to the church include the teachings of how a man should love his wife. 5:23 of Ephesians.
For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
It is true. Words: Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church, they mean the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for a husband, for a wife, for all Christians in the church. For that, husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church, teaching us that the truth for Christians is in the true church, directed by God to the true church. That is why in verse 23 it says that: For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. As Christ is the head of the church, the husband is the head of the wife. Where? In the church. That is why in the church the husbands are taught: Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
Sister Roxanna, the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ are for the church. That’s why I do not think her husband will learn this, because he’s not even in church, and he isn’t listening to these words of God in the church where he congregates, since in the true church, one of the greatest teachings in the gospel, is the way in which the husband and the wife must cohabit daily, according to the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ: A husband loving his wife and a woman subject under the authority of her husband. Let’s read in Ephesians 5:24
Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
The result of this is a quiet life for a family. The husband is the head of the woman, the woman is under the authority of the husband. The husband is taught how to love his wife and her how to be subject to the husband. Both have been taught to live together in peace and in the righteousness of God, since biblical marriage means how to live under the law of Christ. Romans 7: 2. Let’s read:
For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law that binds her to him.
A married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, the law is the disciplining factor between a man and a wife to live together in peace.
Why a husband becomes accustomed to being violent in dealing with his wife when the Bible says in 1 Peter chapter 3 verse 7. Let’s read:
1 Peter 3:7
Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with your wives with understanding, giving honor unto the wife as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers be not hindered.
Women should be treated as a fragile glass, it should not be too strong. That is why husbands should not be violent against their wife. This husband, cannot be called husband, because the husband called in the Bible is a man who treats his wife as the most fragile vessel: and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers be not hindered.
It means, sister, that he is not a husband with gospel instruction. Her husband is not a husband, but an executioner, because he does the same with his children. If your question is: ¿What should I do? Well, separate before you die. If you want to live, you must separate yourself from the person who wants to kill you. It is logically correct. And God Himself will allow it. Although it is said that what God has joined together must not be separated by man, but you separate yourself by your own will, because you fear for your life.
I hope you have understood, Sister Roxanna, and may God help in your situation.
