Proverbs 6:34

For jealousy detonates rage in a cheated husband; wild for revenge, he won’t make allowances.


Husbands have an internal warning sign – jealousy – a holy discernment.

Most people think of jealousy as a negative trait, but in reality, it is a signal to us that arises when the one with whom we are committed to strays. In fact, a husband actually has this internal warning within his spirit.

This is the law of jealousy, when a wife, while under her husband’s authority, goes astray and defiles herself, or when the spirit of jealousy comes upon a man, and he becomes jealous of his wife. – Numbers 5:30

A husband is in the positional authority to provide, protect, promote, and empower his wife. Husbandry is the practice and art of cultivation. His words are seeds sown that produce a determined harvest.

Just as a farmer knows his field and cares for it, nurturing and drawing out the best that it has to offer, so a husband cares for, nurtures, and draws out the best in his wife. The farmer also is aware of trespassers – invaders onto his property.

I want to be clear that this isn’t something to play with – this is a spiritual sense that must be carefully confirmed – don’t jump to rash conclusions. Don’t allow delusional thoughts lead you astray. This is a matter of serious spiritual discernment.


This isn’t something to trifle with.
