And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. And the people gave a shout, saying, “It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.” And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
-Acts 12:21-23, KJV (quotation marks added)
Strange things seem to happen around situations involving infidelity.
Much of the strangeness probably can simply be explained when the truth is apparent. It looks strange because one is only reading part of the story. The cheater is withholding material information.
Then sometimes you encounter events that are simply spiritually spooky.
I had one of those transpire in my story:
My ex-wife had a professional mentor who we had seen for marriage counseling (bad idea!). When we had visited at her office, I always had an “icky” feeling in my spirit about that location. It felt dark. Something was “off” there.
She suddenly died in the midst of our marriage chaos.
To this day, I wonder if God intervened regarding this person’s influence over my ex and our marriage.
It could have just been a natural event, too.
However, the death itself was rather unsettling considering all the prayers of protection being prayed at the time. Specifically, I remember prayers about removing bad influences over my (now) ex were being lifted up to God.
Situations with adultery and infidelity are situation rife with spiritual warfare. Souls and God’s highest metaphor–i.e. marriage–are at stake. It ought not to surprise us to encounter spiritual or unexplained phenomenon in that fight.
