Occasionally, a thing is interesting for more than one reason.
So it was that an email was received this past week which offered ASUNDER (and its definition) as a “new word“.
1: into parts//torn asunder
NOW, it is always nice and interesting to receive a new word in one’s email. (This happens several times each day to this writer.)
BUT, what made this particular email interesting was that the person who had sent it had also added a question at the bottom of the email.
“in the bible?”
This led to some investigation and research in order to 1- answer the question at the bottom of the email; and, 2- satisfy the curiosity raised by that question.
Here’s a few of the things learned during that investigation and research.
1- There are 21 instances in the King James Version of the word ASUNDER being used.
2- Several of those 21 times when ASUNDER was used are fairly well-known Bible passages.
3- Among the best known of the times ASUNDER is used in the Bible are Hebrews 4:12 and Mark 10:9.
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
4- Mark 10:9 is perhaps the best-known of all Bible verses using the word ASUNDER.
“What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
Though not sure of how many know it today, Mark 10:9 was once known by almost ALL as part of the standard ceremony of matrimony.
BUT, as other parts of that ceremony were dumped by modern sensibilities–such as the wife’s pledge to “obey” her husband–Mark 10:9 may also have fallen by the wayside.
5- The thoughts of Mark 10:9 are echoed in Matthew 19:6.
“Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
6- Prophetically speaking, Jeremiah 50:23 is a fairly well-known verse. It is referring to an end times country known only as BABYLON, which is powerful militarily and which God destroys.
“How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!”
7- ANOTHER prophetic verse which uses ASUNDER is contained in the first few verses of Psalm 2. The psalm refers to the plans of an evil world and its evil leaders right before the return of Jesus Christ.
“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed [Jesus Christ], saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.”
Of course, the kings of the earth referred to in Psalm 2 do not believe the Lord shall have them in derision, while He laughs. The kings of the earth do not believe God’s Word. Which is why they are forced to live out what He who sits in the heavens has already seen.
All of that because of one three-word question at the end of a daily word.
DID the reader know of any of the Bible verses mentioned which use the word “ASUNDER”?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
