Hello @Raghavi_Rags, Welcome to Crossmap Community. Glad you are here.
Let me try to post something biblical and practical.
There are very good examples about marriage in the bible starting from ancestors of faith in the book of Genesis, especially the story of Issac and Rebekah from Genesis 24. There is much to learn from this chapter. Most importantly in the book of I Corinthians 7 Apostle Paul speaks extensively about marriage. If you are seeking biblical guidance, I suggest you read and mediate this chapter carefully.
Marriage is something that will affect the rest of your life and any decision regarding marriage should be taken very seriously. Honestly speaking about what you have written here
brings me concern. God surely shows signs through visions and dreams. But when it comes to decisions like marriage it is very important not to just rely on visions on dreams as primary communication method to God. Your primary communication method with God should strictly and purely be from the scriptures to know what is the will of God.
Most importantly, you should be advised by elders. I understand that this is a topic in a South Indian culture people would not want to discuss with elders such as Church Pastors or Elders at home freely. But you must understand the topic of marriage is not like any other topic that would not have much influence over your life. It is a deep topic of concern that would honestly rip your life apart if not done properly. Therefore it needs a lot of prayers, advice and obedience.
Jesus says in Mark 10:9 that once done donot break the law of God by breaking the marriage. Therefore marriage is not something that you want to test it out and then undo it if you donot like it. It simply can’t go that way according to Biblical standard and God’s standard. I hope you understand clearly.
It is good to choose your better-half by yourself. But you should learn to be flexible and be ready to listen to elders advice. Please approach a mature and trusted person locally and discuss your issue. Friends advice can be sometimes misleading - though they can be of help to a small extent they are not the ones that truly care for you like God who wants your life to be beautiful and promote God’s glory. I hope you understand this clearly and do not take this lightly.
God bless you!
Do post here if you have more questions.
Praying for you. I agree with what @Moses_C wrote. I also think that you should not marry this person. He has already shown that he is cold hearted toward you and other women by doing what he is doing. Paul said in the New Testament that men are to love their wives the way Christ loved the church and gave His life for her.
This man is not even partly an example of that. You are of faith, he only claims to be of faith. I would seriously doubt his “claim” to be Christian.
Also, I understand why you feel like you’d rather not have to live when you are in this much pain. Please, don’t make this temporary problem an eternal problem by taking your life. @Raghavi_Rags, God loves you. He has something good in store for you. Keep praying and try to read as much of the Bible as you safely can.
Thank u so much. Sure,i’ll do. I remember one thng when i was reading I Corinthians chapter 7. I thnk a year ago, i just askd one of my elderly spiritual person abt ths person.Thn he told me to read the same I Corinthians 7:12 - 16. And also he told me that he was praying for my future spouse & he sent me bible verses from ruth chapter 3. so i was confused & thn i askd him whether someone is telling to wait or?he replied,yes.but he told me to wait for gods response & told me to keep in prayer. This person only told me to wait for our marriage in the beginning so i just confirmed again that he’s my future spouse.But later these things are happened. And i spoke with one of my spiritual frd yday. She also told me to keep in prayer & wait for gods reply. She said, she was Shocked by hearing ths but one side he is nearing to the hell, we shouldn’t leave that guy instead of saving. One person is gng to hell in front of our eyes, she said. And another side, may be bcz of his parents,she said. And yes,i remember when he was talking abt his parents, thy are money minded & he is staying away frm his parents for his job purpose. His parents doesnt knw that he is jobless for 2yrs.Thy are nt so spiritual. And thy are looking a girl in a same caste. I dono how thy r looking caste aftr accepting jesus in their lives. I thnk thy are not baptized properly (no changes in heart). But ths person was so spiritual in the beginning.he used to teach me from the bible. He use to say that we need holy Spirit in our life to live holy life but we didn’t ask for it.i thnk we both did a mistake. If we would hve receive holy Spirit, i thnk he wouldn’t cme ths far.he must be saved i thnk.but still, I’m keeping in my prayer.
@Raghavi_Rags Good things you are doing here. Praying is very important. Also reading the Bible as much as you can.
I would suggest that you read the following in your Bible and pray and ask God to confirm or deny if this is what has happened with this man whom you have been thinking will be your husband. God knows, I do not.
1 John 2:19 New International Version (NIV)
19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.
If you don’t understand this quote, read 1 John 1 then 1 John 2 all the way through. That should clarify it. Praying God will help guide you.
Yes. Exactly. Thank u for ur kind words. I was thinking the same whch u hve told abve abt the person. But still I dono gods plan bcz of the past remembrance with him if u read in reply with @moses_c. Anyway, I stopped talking with him. I blocked his contact. Just Keeping in my prayer. But i remember one thing whch he said before. He got one dream & he told me that god told him to built church somewhere outside of india. He mentioned foreign country.
Ya sure…I’ll!..Thank u. I’ll read more bible words from today onwards.
