What are the things that God hates the most? From the begging man has always followed his carnal nature, by rebelling against The Eternal one. Therefore, man has ended up being a corrupted being. All the ways of man and the inclination of his heart are evil from childhood.[Genesis 8:21]. Generally, God distastes sin, but there are two things that God hates the most. What are the two things that God hates the most? let’s dive in and see.
The number one thing God hates is Divorce and domestic violence
The number one thing He hates is divorce and domestic violence. [Malachi 2:14-16].
For the Lord, the God of Israel, says: I hate divorce and marital separation and him who covers his garment [his wife] with violence. Therefore, keep a watch upon your spirit [that it may be controlled by My Spirit], that you deal not treacherously and faithlessly [with your marriage mate]. Malachi 2:16
In our current dispensation, the legal system of the world defines divorce as the legal dissolution of a marriage. They treat marriage as if it’s a contract [a business contract that can be dissolution at any time]. In God’s sight, divorce is not legal, but rather it is an abomination and an act of unfaithfulness.
Marriage is a divine covenant and should therefore be respected by all. Through this covenant, the two become one flesh [as marriage is consummated through sex, fussing the two to become one] and so they are no longer two, but one. Therefore, what God has joined together let no man separate. [Matthew 19:6]. It is also intended to bring forth holy offspring. [I Corinthians 7:14]
I have suffered as a victim of this abominable act of divorce, having witnessed my parents’ divorce for 18 years. It’s a sad story, and my younger brother and I had to be exposed to all sorts of evil and struggle due to our parent’s state of affairs. Divorce is a demon and it costs you everything.
But I tell you, Whoever dismisses and repudiates and divorces his wife, except on the grounds of unfaithfulness (sexual immorality), causes her to commit adultery, and whoever marries a woman who has been divorced commits adultery. Matthew 5:32
The second thing God hates is a man who sows discords among brethren.
The second thing The LORD hates is a man who sows discords among brethren. [Proverbs 6:19]. It is The LORD’S joy when we dwell in unity, for it is in this unity where The LORD commands His blessings. [Psalms 133:1-3]. Anyone who disrupts such harmony is a curse and an abomination before The LORD. Therefore, anyone who causes a family, marriage to separate or divorce, is cursed. The one who causes a church to divide is also an abomination before The LORD. The nature of a true mother is that she seeks to protect and not divide.
