Dangers of Sleeping With Another Man’s Wife

Category: City Pastor's Teachings

Sleeping with another man’s wife knowingly or unknowingly attracts some curses or punishments.

Please read the whole of Genesis 20 to get a clear picture of this.

Abraham was in Gerar as a foreigner and he introduced his wife to people as his sister. This could be as a result of fear of the people attacking and killing him or for financial benefits.

The King, Abimelech took interest in Sarah, Abraham’s wife and sent for her to be brought to him.

Mind you, Abimelech did not know that Sarah was Abraham’s wife, he thought she was his sister.

Here is the Punishment he would have had if he had slept with Sarah

Genesis 20:3, “But that night God came to Abimelech in a dream and told him, “You are a dead man”

So the punishment for sleeping with another man’s wife is death, it could be death in career, in business, in relationships or even physical death!

Genesis 20:3B, “…For that woman you have taken is already married!

Wow! The only reason God gave Abimelech is that the woman he took is already married.So being married disqualifies any other man, aside her husband to sleep with her, any other man aside her husband that sleeps with her risks death, like I mentioned earlier, the death could be in career, it could be in health and it could be physical death!

In Verse 4-5 of the same chapter… but Abimelech had not slept with her yet, so he said, “Lord, will you destroy an innocent nation? Didn’t Abraham tell me, ‘She is my sister’? And she herself said, ‘Yes, he is my brother.’ I acted in complete innocence! My hands are clean.

Even if he had touched her, he would have done so unknowingly, but would have still been punished, though Abraham and his wife could have had their own punishment too, for lying.

The only reason God did not punish Abimelech and the entire nation of Gerar was because he had not touched the woman, though he had intention to anyway! But he had not.

And God…in Verse 6 responded, “Yes, I know you are innocent. That’s why I kept you from sinning against me, and why I did not let you touch her.

This man was innocent, he didn't even know that Sarah was another man's wife, he thought she was beautiful and he could have her, since she was single.

Oho! Can you see that? God did not want to punish him because of his innocence so He did not allow Abimelech touch Sarah because if he had, whether knowingly or not , then he would have been punished.

But the norm these days is that married women are even the preferred for some men, they would do anything possible to get in between the laps of a married woman.

Men would deliberately sleep with other men’s wife, they rape other men’s wife without a care on earth! They no longer even hide to do it these days and yet, there’s a great punishment- which is death, for sleeping with another man’s wife.

Like I'd earlier said, it could be death in physical body or death in career, business, etc.

If you have slept with another man’s wife, what do you do?

Genesis 20:7

You go and meet the man- I mean the woman’s husband you are sleeping with. And ask him to pray for you- simple!

“God told Abimelech- “Now return the woman to her husband and he will pray for you, for he is a prophet. Then you will live. But if you don’t return her to him, you can be sure that you and your people will die”

Incredible! Do you see that- return that woman to her husband now, or you will die- it is the word of God!

That is the only solution God has proffered for this case as in Genesis 20. Remember that Abimelech was not aware Sarah was married, not much more if he had known, yet he has not even touched her, what if he had.

Now the curse of sleeping with another man’s wife goes beyond just the man alone, now it goes on even unto his family- his children and other household members.

From Genesis 20:8 to the end Abimelech returned Sarah to Abraham as God instructed, he was pardoned and Abraham prayed for him and he did not die.

Genesis 20:17, Then Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech, his wife and his female servants, so they could have children. For the Lord had caused all the women to be infertile because of what happened with Abraham’s wife Sarah.

So collecting the woman was already a sin, he was already being punished with his entire generation because of taking the woman, the punishment was lighter because sex has not yet been involved. But there was still punishment, punishment of infertility. Again, infertility could be in health, it could be in career and it could be in business.

See all the people who would have died if Abimelech had slept with Sarah- Abimelech himself, his wife, his female servants and all their women would have been infertile.

May God not let us be infertile in Jesus name, Amen.


What to do if you have slept with or you are sleeping with another person’s wife?- Repent, go to the woman’s husband and beg him for forgiveness, you can ask him to pray for you and God will restore you.
