Now don't go get us wrong, we're not condeming anyone who got out of a bad marriage, because we too have gone through a divorce. We're only going by what the Lord has revealed to us individually after we cried out to Him from broken and contrite hearts asking Him to have mercy on us and come rescue us, and our whole family because we realized too late we blew it!
The Lord began revealing the Secrets of His Blood Covenant to us.
If we were willing to uphold the covenant vows we made to Him dispite the divorce that He knew we really didn't want or seek in the first place, and become eunuchs for the sake of His Kingdom He would back us up.
Matthew 19:11-12 King James Version
We realized God had been listening and heard our vows we made to each other when we married "until death do we part!" We also knew God hated divorce because of the violence it does to all our hearts in the ripping and the tearing apart of the one-flesh that provokes our children to wrath against God.
We also began to see divorce only had the power to brake the intimacy we had with our spouses, due to the hardening of our hearts towards one another, but hard hearts can be made soft again through repentance, and can be restored back to wholeness again through God's grace and mercy. All God need to work with was just one covenant spouse willing to go the distance required to make a difference, we also realized that hard hearts do not have the power to break God's Blood Covenant promises to us, therefore by refusing to repent of our wicked ways we were by default giving ourselves over to Satan's plans instead of God's plans with our own free will. Satan blinds us to that fact.
It's 'Strife' that opens the door giving the devil a foothold to come in and trample your household. Close the door on strife and give God a foot hold instead!!!
A Blood Covenant is made when you willing lay down your life for the Father's glory to be known like Yeshua did. Jesus actually bled out His life's blood for the Father's glory to manifest through Him. We may not lose any actual blood in the laying down of our lives, but some of us may eventually have to by the way the world is heading.
Hosea, is one of those ancient prophets called by God to set this example. He willingly laid down his life so God would get the glory for his restored marriage to his adulterous wife, Gomer. This was done to reflect God's desire for Israel who was also acting like Gomer. He not only wanted to restore Gomer back to holiness, but all of Israel. God was promising Israel restoration once they repented and turned back to Him. Hosea's life makes it very clear what God expects from all of us, we are to humble ourselves and turn from our wicked ways and keep our Sacred Vows we make to God because it opens the door for God to show off not only to our children, but to the world who needs to believe again in a powerful, awesome, wonderful All Mightly God.
All God needs is for us to believe that He is able!!! to restore all things back to Himself, especially His plans that Satan came to kill, steal and destroy, like covenant understanding, but we have to be willing and available vessels for God to use because He is not a bully.
We here at Hosea's Cry have made our decision and have said Yes to the cross, we believe God is able and we are willing to pick it up and follow after Him!!!
Once we found out we had this one heart's desire in common, to love God with our whole hearts, and see His glory manifest in our lives, we understood why God brought us together. We are now affiliated with other groups all over the world with this same heart's desire to turn the hearts of the father's and mother's back to their children purely out of our love for God so He could break this curse off our land.

I've also taken leadership training courses through my home church, and through Covenant Keepers Inc. in Tulsa, Oklahoma USA.
But I count this all dung, for it's the Lord's Kingdom power that I seek for I have no power of my own!
I'm the mother of seven beautiful adult children, and grandmother to 13 really smart grandchildren, you have my word on this.
Life experience has taught us here at Hosea's Cry to trust in God with all our might, and not lean on our own understanding.
My marriage came under attack many years ago, shortly after that I made my decision to stand against Satan's plans for my family and I've continued to stand believing God is able to restore all things for His glory. I believe that nothing is impossible for my God. He came to redeem the lost, and we were lost, but now I and all my children are saved.
I've been blessed on seeing God's wonderful working power manifest when He brought my seven wayward adult children into His Kingdom suddenly right before my eyes. The Holy Spirit had been working on their hearts individually behind the scene without my knowing it. . then the Lord told me,
"Look! and see, I've done a new thing."
