Fornication in Delirium

Fornication in Delirium (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The object of the first woe, as well as of the second, is stated in Revelation 9: 20, 21, to have been the punishment of the professed Christian Church for idolatry, murders, sorceries, fornication, and thefts. Without endorsing either the doctrine of predestination or fatalism which made God could and did use them to check the hypocrisy and sin of His professed people. In this connection it is worthy of note that when one nation is used to punish another it is not necessarily the better of the two; for the conquering nation itself is usually afterwards dealt with in its turn because it does not repent of its own evil practices and false religious conceptions.

“20 And the rest of mankind, who were not killed with these plagues, repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not {1} worship demons, and the idols of gold, and of silver, and of brass, and of stone, and of wood; which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk: {1) See marginal note on Re 3:9} 21 and they repented not of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.” (Revelation 9:20-21 ASV)

- The New Covenant Advocate, August, 1915

God sanctifies by sending the Spirit and the truth, by corrective discipline (Heb. 12), and by giving us the association of brethren likewise under His care and instruction. – But, if we do not cooperate, the sanctification is interfered with. For example, one of the greatest evils in the world is drunkenness. If we have been delivered from that fault, and then continue to make boon companions of those who drink to excess, we can expect nothing less than that we should fall again into the sin from which we were once delivered. Similarly with other evils mentioned in Scripture— fornication, idolatry, covetousness, hatred, envy, etc, etc. Our own safety requires us to co-operate in our own sanctification by keeping away from people and places which have a retarding effect upon our growth in grace and holiness.

Separated from people and places of evil—so far, so good. We have still need to be kept from indulging the evil in our own dispositions. This too is accomplished by the influence of the spirit and the word of Truth; and in this also we must co-operate earnestly if we desire the sanctification to proceed satisfactorily.
Cleanse yourselves, says the apostle —

“Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” (2 Corinthians 7:1 ASV)

- The New Covenant Advocate, June 1917

Our Lord further expounded the higher view of marriage than that embodied in the Jewish Law, “by saying—

“And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, {1} except for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: {2} and he that marrieth her when she is put away committeth adultery. {1) Some ancient authorities read [saving for the cause of fornication, maketh her an adulteress] as in Mt 5:32. 2) The following words, to the end of the verse, are omitted by some ancient authorities.}” (Matthew 19:9 ASV)

The Sinaitic MS. omits the words “and whoso” to “adultery.” The same thought is, however, expressed in Luke 16: 18, according to the Sinaitic as well as other ancient MSS.
In Mark 10:- 11, the adultery committed in such a case is said to be against the wife put away. The wife is definitely wronged by being put away, and still more definitely wronged if her former husband marries another.
In Mark 10: 12 the same principle is enunciated in regard to a woman who puts away her husband and marries another, though there was, so far as we have found, no provision in the Jewish law sanctioning the putting away of the husband by the wife.
But it is likely it was practised nevertheless, since at times the whole nation fell into a state of apostasy and idolatry, and in morals sank to the level of the heathen round about them.

- The New Covenant Advocate, December 1919

The sap, or spirit, nourishing the vine of the earth, is “earthly, sensual, devilish.” It produces “confusion and every evil work.” (James 3: 15, 16.) Says the apostle Paul (Galatians 5) —

“19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are [these]: fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousies, wraths, factions, divisions, {1} parties, {1) Gr [heresies]} 21 envyings, drunkenness, revellings, and such like; of which I {1} forewarn you, even as I did {1} forewarn you, that they who practise such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. {1) Or [tell you plainly]}” (Galatians 5:19-21 ASV)

All this vile fruit is the production of the spirit of the present evil world surging through the vine of the earth. Says another apostle (1 John 2) —

“15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the vain glory of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” (1 John 2:15-17 ASV)

“22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 meekness, self-control; against such there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23 ASV)

  • Fornication, Hell and the Bible (courageouspriest.com)
    We live in times in which many call good or “no big deal” what God calls sinful. This is especially true in the area of sexuality, where whole sectors of our society not only tolerate but even celebrate sexual practices that the Scriptures call gravely sinful, and which will lead to Hell if not repented of. Acts of fornication (pre-marital sex) and homosexual acts cannot be considered acceptable by any Catholic or by any person who sincerely accepts the Scripture as the Word of God. And even for those who do not share our faith, acts of fornication and homosexual acts can be plainly seen to cause great harm in the manner in which they spread serious disease, harm marriage and family, lead to abortion, and for the children who do survive abortion, subject them to having single mothers, absent fathers, and a lack of the best environment which they are due.

    The Flesh lusts against the spirit and the spirit against the flesh; the two are directly opposed. This is why you do not do what your will intends. If you are guided by the spirit you are not under the law. The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery, idolatry, sorcery, hostilities, bickering jealousy, outbursts of rage, selfish rivalries, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, orgies and the like. I warn you, as I have warned you before: those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God! (Galatians 5:16-21)

    Can you not realize that the unholy will not fall heir to the Kingdom of God? Do not deceive yourselves: no fornicators, idolaters, or adulterers, no sodomites, thieves, misers, or drunkards, no slanderers or robbers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you; but you have been washed, consecrated, justified in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. Do you not see that your bodies are member of Christ? Would you have me take Christ’s members and make them members of a prostitute? God forbid! Can you not see that the man who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? Scripture says, “The two shall become one flesh.” But whoever is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. Shun Lewd conduct. Every other sin a man commits is outside of his body, but the fornicator sins against his own body. You must know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is within – the Spirit you have received from God. You are not your own. You have been purchased at a price. So glorify God in your body. (I Cor. 6:9-11, 15-20)

    “Of the wine of the wrath of her fornication” is a reference to the world ideologies of Babylon, which will prostitute the divine institutions God has establish for man’s protection like: volition, freedom, marriage and the family, and nationalism. Some of these intoxicant agents are humanism, the unisex idea promoted so strongly even today by the ERA movement (strongly represented by the National Organization for Women), the New Age movement, internationalism, commercialism, multinational corporations, demon worship, gross immorality, and idolatry (cf. Rev. 9:20-21; 13:5-6, 16-17).
  • Homosexuality and the Body of Christ (davidchristian.hubpages.com)
    The attitude of secular civil society which says that sodomy is acceptable has spread into the church of Jesus Christ. Some denominations have already normalizedthe appointment of clerics who are openly homosexual. The excuse seems to lie in the idea that Christ was tolerant, and that thereshould be a place in his church for people of all kinds.Traditionalists attack this attitude, if course, with vehemence and intransigent rejection of what is to them an abominable promotion of an abominable practice. At the same time, avant-garde promoters of inclusiveness bend over backwards to convince the uninformed that God’s word in no place even mentions homosexuality, let alone condemns it.There is nothing odd about this, as attempting to distort the word of God to deceive others, and to mislead them into doing that which God condemns, is a method that God’s enemies employ in connection to a wide variety of issues. The apostle Peter mentioned that the existence this practice was already seen almost 2,000 years ago. In chapter three of the second letter that bears his name, Peter warned of the consequences to those who distort God’s word,
  • What Every Christian Needs To Know About Homosexuality (shoebat.com)
    when Israel was in a state of anarchy, they did that “which was right in their own eyes” and thus had a repeat of the Sodom and Gomorrah situation in Judges 19:22-30. This resulted in civil war in the house of Israel between the tribe of Benjamin (the guilty party) and the tribe of Judah and the rest of the othertribes of Israel in Judges 20 and 21. A solemn warning to the West which has inherited the blessings and teachings of the God of Israel!Notice the following verses as a sign of not only the anarchy that was going on Israel, especially under godless kings, but more specifically, howsodomites/homosexualswere linked to this state of anarchy who thus hadto be dealt with by more righteous kings.I Kings 14:24: “And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.”

    I Kings 15:12: “And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.” [This verse is talking about King Asa of Judah, who was more righteous than his father, Abijam, and was willing to make amends before God by getting rid of the sodomites and idolatry in Judah]

    I Kings 22:46: “And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.” [This is talking about righteous king, Jehoshaphat, who succeeded his father, Asa, and also did something about the sodomites too].

    II Kings 23:7: “And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.” [This is describing the actions of another righteous king, Josiah, who destroyed the sodomite dens which were blasphemously put alongside the Temple].

    The Talmud also makes this statement regarding the sin of sodomy since the days of Noah and how Noahides (righteous non-Jews/Gentiles) behaved:

    Talmud Bavli, Chulin 92a–b:

    עולא אמר אלו שלשים מצות שקבלו עליהם בני נח ואין מקיימין אלא שלשה אחת שאין כותבין כתובה לזכרים ואחת שאין שוקלין בשר המת במקולין ואחת שמכבדין את התורה

    “Said Ulla: There were thirty commandments that Noahides accepted, but they keep only three: not to write a ketuba for males; not to weigh dead human flesh in the market; and to show respect for the Torah.”

  • Madea reveals he’s having a child out of Wedlock (exministries.tv)
    Just because people fail the standard (Bible), it doesn’t mean that the standard (Bible) failed. God’s grace is not just about cutting man some slack. It’s about bringing man’s sins to bear on his life, to cause man to recognize the goodness of the Lord, and to get it right. Grace gives man a chance to get it straight with God. Favor demands you get it straight before it is too late. Romans 6:1 says, “Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we that are dead to sin live any longer in it (sin)?”
  • Who Are the Overcomers? (whatshotn.wordpress.com)
    The New Testament clearly teaches us, as does life itself, that we are in a conflict, indeed, a holy war, with specific adversaries. Even after salvation, the conflict still rages in and against the life of the Christian. This is everywhere evident in Scripture and so obvious in life that one has to deny reality to ignore or disclaim it. Two key passages that illustrate the nature of our conflict with evil are Ephesians 2:1-2 and 6:12:

    We are to put no confidence in the flesh (Phil. 3:3). We do not overcome by our works, by the energy of the flesh, or by our sincerity, or by our effort, or by our will power because we are powerless. Nevertheless, victory requires our cooperation with God’s operation. It means discipline, diligence, commitment to draw near to God and to act on His promises and provision by faith. Note also 1 Corinthians 15:10; Philippians 2:12-13.

  • The Miscreants behind the Pulput… (audacityandsupposition.com)
    The carnage of modern Christian doctrines is the work of spiritual deception, poured through the willing carnality of the clergy. This fact is dramatically illustrated by Mr. Helmut Koester. Writing in the July/August 1995 issue of Biblical Archaeology Review, Mr. Koester said, “It is a simple historical fact that Jesus was an Israelite from Galilee, and that he understood himself to be nothing else but a prophet in Israel and for Israel- a venerable tradition.”
    +
    The Christian seminaries long ago sorted the scriptures into categories to support canned denominational doctrines. As students at these institutions, future pastors do not study the Bible, they study “doctrines.” They learn how to explain the entire Bible from prescribed denominational perspectives. Their thinking is trained to see a packaged point of view. They are taught to repeat the denominational liturgy. Their opinions are formed to fit the mold or they don’t graduate. And no pastor is given a position in any church unless he agrees to perpetuate the party line. Seminary training removes inspiration, revelation, individual conscience, and God, from the ministry. Helmut Koester provides a startling example: “It is impossible to know for certain what Israelites or Jews, or for that matter Christians, could or could not believe in the first century C.E. [AD], before both Judaism and Christianity established boundaries for their beliefs at the end of the second century.”

When people talk or think about fornication, they mostly only think about the physical act and forget that there is also a spiritual fornication.
About the spiritual fornication we do like to present an old article from the Australian Bible Students, from the previous century:

Already in the Apostles’ Day, some bad arisen in the Church to begin the age-long fulfilment of the prophetic “sign” of “the gainsaying of Korah“; on account of whom it was needful for Jude to write to the Christians and exhort them that they contend earnestly “for he faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”

Loc Market Place, Norwich It was so busy down ...

These “ungodly sinners” are vigorously described in Jude’s Epistle and in 2 Peter 2, much of the language being almost identical. The ungodly ones, “crept in unawares,” “with feigned words.” They denied “our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.” (Jude 4, R.V. I “These dreamers speak evil of dignities.” (Jude 8.) And to show that not subordinate “dignities” are here meant, but that the Highest over the Church — even our Lord Jesus Christ — is here particularly designated, we are told that these “murmurers, complainers, “ungodly sinners,” shall be convicted of all their hard speeches, which they, with “great swelling words,” “have spoken Against Him.”—Jude 15.

Primitive Christians had been forewarned of this Antichrist disposition that was to manifest itself among them.

“Little children, it is the last hour: and as ye heard that antichrist cometh, even now have there arisen many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last hour.” (1 John 2:18 ASV)

The spiritual cancer was already eating its way (2 Timothy 2: 17), and it made the greater progress because some were weak and sickly, through neglect of their spiritual health. — 1 Cor. 11: 30-32.

“and their word will {1} eat as doth a gangrene: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; {1) Or [spread]}” (2 Timothy 2:17 ASV)

“30 For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep. 31 But if we {1} discerned ourselves, we should not be judged. {1) Gr [discriminated]} 32 But {1} when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world. {1) Or [when we are judged of the Lord, we are chastened]}” (1 Corinthians 11:30-32 ASV)

In post-apostolic times, the disease made great strides, and after some centuries it shaped up as the Papacy, whose “great swelling words” were matters of prophetic prediction and have become matters of historic fulfilment. All of these have spoken “hard speech-“against “our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ,” and in various ways they have spoken evil of His dignity.

Some of them have not hesitated to go in the evil way of Cain; many of them have run greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, seducing God’s people into spiritual “fornication” (mixing of Church and world), as the ancient Balaam literally led astray fleshly Israel; some have particularly imitated the ways of Korah. But all of “these dreamers” have been “raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame,” yet they have been so lacking in spiritual perception that they have one and all gloried in their shame.

  • What is Holy Tradition? (silouanthompson.net)
    Holy Tradition is the teaching of the Church, given by God with a living voice, a portion of which was later written down. Like Holy Scripture, Holy Tradition also contains holy revelation, and is therefore fundamental for our salvation. Holy Tradition is the life of the Church in the Holy Spirit; and, in concord with the enduring life of the Church, it is a wellspring of holy revelation, and thus it possesses the same authority as Holy Scripture.According to the old chronologies, 3,678 years passed from the time of Adam to Abraham; if we add 430 years of the Israelites’ time in Egypt, we have 4,108 years. Throughout this period of time Holy Scripture did not exist, nor was the Sabbath observed among the people. For thousands of years the faithful and chosen people were guided on the path of salvation by Holy Tradition alone—namely, from the teachings about God which they received from a living voice. Only during the 1,400 years from the time of Moses until the advent of Christ were they guided by the Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament.
  • Church, the Theater of Hypocrisy (planksandnails.hubpages.com)
    It is unfortunate that the church mind is so adamant that they are right in their ideology that they frown upon and judge those who contend against it without weighing and testing the Word of God first to find the truth for themselves. The Ekklesia who have left the trappings of organized religion have come to understand the compromise and apostasy within the churches of men. They have allowed the Holy Spirit to lead them to truth, rather than allowing the salaried-to-serve class to dispense their religious name brand agenda upon their pulpits.

Jehovah as the One Who personally visits Abraham along with the other 2 men, (an indication of the Trinity since Abraham addresses them in the singular: “My lord“,rather than plural), tells Abraham that the reason He is going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah is for this reason:Genesis 18:20: “And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;”

As another expressed it, “If there is no place like Hell, then to alarm people with such an idea is wrong. But if there is actually a place like Hell, then to keep silent and fail to warn people about it is worse than neglect of duty. It Is Criminal!”

    In contrast to the many human viewpoint foundations or cunningly devised fables upon which men try to build their lives stands the faithful and true Word from God. Man’s viewpoint without the Bible must be built upon speculation, human reason, and experience, all of which are very unreliable due to man’s condition in sin, his short life span, his deductive thinking, his constant tendency to interpret facts with his presuppositions, his limited experience and the amount of knowledge he can retain and use, and of course, due to the unseen and demonic forces which deceive and warp his viewpoint. All of this makes man’s human viewpoint ideas about as reliable as a lily pad for a foundation, especially in spiritual matters.
  • Sinners or Saints? (lhim.org)
    We find the first reference to sinners in Sodom where it says “the men of Sodomwere wicked exceedingly and sinners against the LORD” (Gen 13.13). In the time of Samuel God told Saul to “utterly destroy the sinners, the Amalekites” (1 Sam 15.18). Throughout the books of poetry, we see the righteous encouraged not to “stand in the path of sinners” (Psa 1.1), that sinners will not stand in the assembly of the righteous (Psa 1.5). After all, one sinner destroys much good (Ecc 9.18). Solomon taught his son notto be enticed by sinners (Prov 1.10), since they will get what they deserve (Prov 11.31). Wickedness, adversity, and the adulteress subvert the sinner (Prov 13.6, 21;Ecc 7.26) and his wealthis stored up for the righteous (Prov 13.22;Ecc 2.26). Even if they live a long time, you should not allow your heart to envy sinners (Ecc 8.12; Prov 23.17). Rather, like David, we should seek to convert sinners to God’s path (Psa 51.13). We hear the Psalmist begging, “do not take my soul away along with sinners” (Psa 26.9) since theywill be consumed from the earth (Psa 104.35; Isaiah 1.28; 13.9; Amos 9.10). In the end they too shall die (Ecc 9.2), or perchance if they live to see it, the day of the LORD will terrify them (Isaiah 33.14).In the Gospels, we find sinners often mentioned with tax collectors. These were the people that Jesus was calling to repentance—the people with whom the Pharisees and scribes did not want to have anything to do (Mat 9.10-13; Mark 2.15-17; Luke 5.30-32; 19.7).

15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Messiah? Then taking the members of Messiah, shall I make them members of a harlot? Let it not be!
16 Or do you not know that he being joined to a harlot is one body? For He says, The two shall be into one flesh1.
17 But the one being joined to our Master is one spirit.
18 Flee fornication. Every sin which a man may do is outside the body, but he doing fornication sins against his own body.
19 Or do you not know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit in you, which you have from Elohim, and you are not of yourselves?
20 You were bought with a price; then glorify Elohim in your body, and in your spirit, which belong to Elohim.

  • Racism, Semen & the Designer Child

    The fact remains that same-sex couples cannot naturally have children. They must conceive either through heterosexual fornication or immoral medical intervention. There is no actual sharing of DNA even if they find donors of the same race. In this vein, there is a fiction or personal deception that taints this situation. The silliness of the upset is amplified when the mother talks about problems in finding hair care for an “African American girl.” Did she imagine brushing the blond hair of her pasty white girl with curls? Now she wants to hold others accountable when in my estimation they are all guilty, that is everyone but the child.

    This is just the beginnings of a moral issue that will grow worse in the years to come, especially with increased DNA manipulation. The issue is human selfishness and the desire for designer children. Would she have aborted the child had it been a boy? Were boy fetuses aborted?

  • The Petty Thief And The Armed Robber
    I’m sure you’re wondering what sexual immorality has to do with petty thieves and armed robbers!  Well my point is that both the petty thief and the armed robber are THIEVES and they are both heading to the same place, if they do not repent.  In the same way, both fornication and homosexuality are sexually immorality and will face the same judgment from God!
    +
    when addressing homosexuality, we have to address the fact that the Church is behaving like a big hypocrite because we put up with fornication. It is no wonder we have little or no defense against homosexuality!

    One of the points my sister raised was that fornicating Christians at least go to Church and ask for forgiveness and try not to do it again. But that’s SOME! For a lot of Christians (by religion, not faith) who are fornicating, it is a lifestyle that they have no plans on changing! In fact, going to Church and seeking forgiveness is such a bother, they probably don’t do it anymore. They know they’ll be ‘going to the club tonight’ and ‘getting down to business later’, so why pretend? Many are proudly professing being Christian and sexually active outside marriage that trying to suggest abstinence is a laughing matter (Read Act like a lady, Think like a man (Ufuomaee’s Critique))!

  • Just What Exactly Is “Fornication?”
    What fornication originally was dealing with was temple prostitution and other forms of idolatry.

  • Daily Devotion 1 – “No to Prostitution”
    Today on social media I see a lot of men saying “Am good in bed, call me” its prostitution and I’ve also met woman of same fold. These are what awaits thee if you do not change. Imagine, what God has sanctified for the married alone is now a thing of play amongst men of the world. Sex is sacred and should be, many have deserted the spirit and choosed to feed the body, the body which is made up of sin wants nothing but sin.

  • A Loss of the Sense
    Christians have become more and more comfortable with the morals of the world and are choosing more and more to substitute that system into discipleship with Jesus. However, that is an impossibility. We cannot be disciples of Christ while embracing discipleship of the world. We choose to go along with what the world says is right simply because its popular or easier. You will never find anywhere in the Bible where Jesus says that that is what discipleship is all about.

    Don’t go to taste honey of loose woman, don’t go after other woman. Be happy and rejoice with own wife. That will give happiness and peace in family life.

    Adultery is one of the most frequently and severely condemned sins in the Bible.

1 Corinthians 6:15-20
– Flee from Immorality

1CO6:15 Do you not realize that your bodies are Christ’s members?[1] Shall I, therefore, take away Christ’s members and make them a prostitute’s members?[2] May that never occur! 1CO6:16 Or, do you not realize that the person who makes himself stick to the prostitute becomes one body [with that prostitute]?[3] For [The [Supreme] God] says, “The two will be one flesh.”[4] [Genesis 2:24] 1CO6:17 But, the person that sticks to the Master, such is one spirit.[5] 1CO6:18 All of you continue to flee from sexual immorality.[6] Whatever sin a human might do is outside the body,[7] but the person who practices sexual immorality continues to sin against their own body.[8] 1CO6:19 Or, do you not realize that the Body of all of you is a Divine Habitat[9] for the Sacred Force of the Mind of The [Supreme] God?[10] Also, you do not belong to yourselves.[11] 1CO6:20 All of you were bought with a price.[12] Now, actually all of you glorify The [Supreme] God in your Body.[13]

[1]     Do you not realize that your bodies are Christ’s members: Or, parts of Christ himself. How the Corinthians were supposed to know this is not explained. Paul will go on to explain this in more detail in chapter 12. [1 Corinthians 12:18, 27] Compare notes on Romans 12:5 and Ephesians 4:15.

[2]     Take away Christ’s members and make them a prostitute’s members: The thought is shocking, but that is Paul’s intent. It seems the Corinthian congregation had a real problem with this local temptation.

[3]     Stick to the prostitute becomes one body [with that prostitute]: Or, joined to, joins. Paul gives his reason in the following phrase. “Prostitute” is from the Greek PORNE [to buy].

[4]     For [The [Supreme] God] says, “The two will be one flesh.”: Paul quotes Genesis 2:24 and applies the statement to God. The two become “one flesh” upon sexual intercourse. [Genesis 4:1] Thus, Adam and Eve were not “one flesh” until after their ouster from Eden.

[5]     The person that sticks to the Master, such is one spirit: Or, joined, in union with; WMS: is spiritually one with him; MON: one with him in spirit. [John 17:21; Ephesians 4:3, 4] Compare notes on 1 Corinthians 2:16. The meaning may be, “of one mind,” or, “of the same disposition.” [1Peter 4:1]

[6]     All of you continue to flee from sexual immorality: Or, KJV: flee fornication; WMS: keep on running from; PME: avoid sexual looseness like the plague. See an example in Joseph at Genesis 39:12. Fleeing such would mean avoiding circumstances or situations that might arouse an inclination toward sexual immorality. Compare the warnings in Proverbs 2:10-19; chapters 5 and 6. [2 Timothy 2:22] Compare 1 Thessalonians 4:3.

[7]     Whatever sin a human might do is outside the body: Or, is without the body.

[8]     The person who practices sexual immorality continues to sin against their own body: Or, fornication, prostitution. Compare an example – a possible allusion to STDs – at Proverbs 7:21-23. Many would see a warning against AIDS in this context. [Romans 1:24, 27]

[9]     Do you not realize that the Body of all of you is a Divine Habitat: Or, temple, shrine, sanctuary. The Greek is NAOS and refers to a shrine where a god resides. Paul has already mentioned this in 1 Corinthians 3:16 and will go on to do so again at 2 Corinthians 6:16. [Ephesians 2:19-22] Compare the use of NAOS in Revelation. [Nazarene Apocalypse 2000©]

[10]    For the holy Pneuma from The [Supreme] God: See notes on Ephesians 2:22. One could create a triune formula here: a] the Saints; b] the Spirit; and, c] God.

[11]    You do not belong to yourselves: Or, no longer your own masters. [Romans 14:8]

[12]    All of you were bought with a price: Or, GDS: brought and paid for; KNX: a great price was paid to ransom you. Paul repeats this at 1 Corinthians 7:23. [1 Peter 1:18; Revelation 5:9]

[13]    Actually all of you glorify The [Supreme] God in your Body: Or, TCN: honour God in your bodies. [Matthew 5:16] Note seriously 2 Corinthians 5:10. The whole Body or Temple of God seen in the Church of Christ must refrain from impurity and unholiness.

    I’ve found in the TaNaKh and Brit Hadasha where “right hand” explicitly or implicitly refer (in my understanding) to יהושועMessiah. Take a look and you’ll see how powerful the right hand of Elohim is, and how many times, Yahuwah’s people were saved by His right hand.

  • The six woes, and Yom Kippurim (setapartpeople.com)
    A day of atonements, a day of introspection and repentance. I am sure we have all been searching ourselves, to find the areas where we fall short.
    +
    I was reading in the book of Isaiah and came across this passage about the six woes and felt really convicted. It starts off with a parable about a vineyard and how the owner cared for it, and waited for good grapes, yet he was disappointed for it produced only worthless fruit. He then tells what he will do with it because of this and proceeds by giving the explanation of the parable. When we read the rest of the passage, we learn more about this worthless fruit in the form of the six woes. When I read this, I realized just how profound this is, especially just before Yom Kippurim.
    +
    Every one of us misses the target, we all sin. Sin is the transgression of the law (1 John 3:4). We are, therefore, all guilty and need to repent and start producing good fruit, not the worthless fruit as described in this passage.
    +
    it is not too late to change, we can acknowledge our guilt and return to YHVH. He sent His Salvation, Y’shua and through Him receive forgiveness and life. Repentance means to turn around and not continue in our wicked ways. So, after having been forgiven, we are to make changes. It is our choice! YHVH wants us to be set apart people for Him and this is the fruit.

    The Body of must be born, and a birth is indeed a radical experience. The birth of the Renewed Israel, or True Israel, or the Remnant, the Few – whatever you wish to call it – is to take place. The Scriptures speak often of this great event, this end-time birth: Rev. 12:5, Micah 4:6-10, Micah 5:3, Ps. 22:31, Ps. 102:18, Matt. 24:8 etc. Micah 5:3 describes it so well, “Therefore He shall give them up, until the time that she who is in labour has given birth; then the remnant of His brethren shall return to the children of Israel.”

Excerpt from the book The image of God, or lai...

Fragment uit het boek Het beeld van God, of laie mans boke waarin de juiste kennis van God wordt onthuld, en diuerse twijfels naast de belangrijkste kwestie, geschreven door Roger Hutchinson 1550 (beschikbaar in John Bruce De werken van Roger Hutchinson (1842, pp . 183, 183) op archive.org), met behulp van Gods bijbelse naam Jehovah (Jehova / Iehova / Iehoua). (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

tot ons onderricht: (#2Ti 3:16): 16 De gehele Schrift is door God geïnspireerd*+ en nuttig om te onderwijzen,+ terecht te wijzen,+ dingen recht te zetten,*+ streng te onderrichten+ in rechtvaardigheid,

(#2Pe 1:19): 19 Dientengevolge is het profetische woord+ voor ons des te vaster [gemaakt],+ en GIJ doet goed er acht op te geven als op een lamp+ die schijnt in een duistere plaats, totdat de dag aanbreekt en er een dagster*+ opgaat, in UW hart.

(#Pr 3:12): 12 want die Jehovah liefheeft, wordt door hem terechtgewezen,+ evenals een vader dit doet met een zoon aan wie hij een welgevallen heeft.+

(#Joh 16:8): 8 En wanneer die gekomen is, zal hij de wereld het overtuigende bewijs leveren* aangaande zonde en aangaande rechtvaardigheid en aangaande oordeel:+

(#Tit 1:9): 9 stevig vasthoudend aan het getrouwe woord met betrekking tot zijn [kunst van] onderwijzen,+ opdat hij in staat is zowel door de gezonde+ leer te vermanen als de tegensprekers terecht te wijzen.+

(#1Ti 4:16): 16 Schenk voortdurend aandacht aan uzelf+ en aan uw onderwijs.+ Blijf bij deze dingen, want door dit te doen, zult gij zowel uzelf redden als hen die naar u luisteren.+

(#1Ti 6:3): 3 Indien iemand een andere leer brengt+ en niet instemt met gezonde+ woorden, die van onze Heer Jezus Christus, noch met de leer die in overeenstemming is met godvruchtige toewijding,*+

(#Jas 3:1): 3 Niet velen van U moeten leraren worden,+ mijn broeders, daar GIJ weet dat wij een zwaarder oordeel zullen ontvangen

(#He 12:5): 5 maar GIJ hebt de vermaning die tot U als zonen+ wordt gericht, helemaal vergeten: „Mijn zoon, acht [het] strenge onderricht dat van Jehovah* komt, niet gering en bezwijk niet wanneer gij door hem wordt gecorrigeerd,*+

geschreven: (#Ro 4:23): 23 Dat ’het hem werd toegerekend’+ werd echter niet alleen ter wille van hem geschreven,+

(#1Co 10:11): 11 Deze dingen nu bleven hun overkomen als voorbeelden* en ze werden opgeschreven tot een waarschuwing+ voor ons, tot wie de einden* van de samenstelsels van dingen*+ gekomen zijn.

door middel van onze volharding: (#Ro 5:4): 4 volharding vervolgens een goedgekeurde toestand,+ de goedgekeurde toestand vervolgens hoop,+

(#2Ti 2:15): 15 Doe uw uiterste best om u goedgekeurd+ aan God aan te bieden, als een werkman+ die zich nergens over behoeft te schamen,+ die het woord der waarheid juist hanteert.+

(#Jas 1:12): 12 Gelukkig is de man die beproeving blijft verduren,+ want nadat hij is goedgekeurd, zal hij de kroon des levens ontvangen,+ die Jehovah* beloofd heeft aan hen die hem blijven liefhebben.+

(#Mt 5:10): 10 Gelukkig zijn zij die ter wille van de rechtvaardigheid zijn vervolgd,+ want hun behoort het koninkrijk der hemelen toe.

(#Jas 1:2): 2 Beschouwt het een en al vreugde, mijn broeders, wanneer U velerlei beproevingen overkomen,+

door middel van de vertroosting: (#Ps 119:50):  50 Dit is mijn troost in mijn ellende,+ Want het is uw toezegging die mij in het leven heeft gehouden.+

(#Ps 94:19): 19 Wanneer mijn verontrustende gedachten vele werden binnen in mij,+ Waren het uw vertroostingen die mijn ziel gingen strelen.+

(#Ps 71:21): 21 Moogt gij mijn grootheid vermeerderen,+ En moogt gij mij omringen [en] troosten.+

(#Ps 86:17): 17 Bewerk ten aanzien van mij een teken dat goedheid beduidt, Opdat degenen die mij haten, [het] zien en beschaamd staan.+ Want gijzelf, o Jehovah, hebt mij geholpen en getroost.+

(#2Co 1:3-4): 4 die ons vertroost in al onze verdrukking,+ opdat wij hen die in enigerlei verdrukking zijn, kunnen vertroosten+ door middel van de vertroosting waarmee wijzelf door God worden vertroost.+

(#2Th 2:16): 16 Mogen bovendien onze Heer Jezus Christus zelf en God, onze Vader, die ons heeft liefgehad+ en door middel van onverdiende goedheid eeuwige troost en goede hoop heeft gegeven,+

(#Ps 40:1): 40 Ik heb vurig op Jehovah gehoopt,+ En daarom heeft hij [zijn oor] tot mij geneigd en mijn hulpgeschreeuw gehoord.+

hoop: „Hoop,” אAVgSyp; B: „hoop der vertroosting; de vertroostende hoop.”

hoop zouden hebben: (#1Co 9:10): 10 Of zegt hij het geheel en al ter wille van ons? Ja, ter wille van ons werd het geschreven,+ omdat wie ploegt, in hoop behoort te ploegen, en wie dorst, dit behoort te doen in de hoop zijn deel te ontvangen.+

(#He 3:6): 6 maar Christus [was getrouw] als Zoon+ over Diens huis. Diens huis zijn wij,+ indien wij onze vrijmoedigheid van spreken en ons roemen over de hoop tot het einde toe stevig* vasthouden.+

(#1Pe 1:10): 10 Betreffende deze redding is naarstig navraag gedaan en een nauwkeurig onderzoek+ ingesteld door de profeten, die over de voor U bedoelde onverdiende goedheid hebben geprofeteerd.+

++

Die geschreven dingen omvatten veel goede voorbeelden van mannen en vrouwen met een groot geloof (#He 11:32-34). We kunnen en moeten ons voordeel doen met die mooie voorbeelden in de Bijbel door ze na te volgen. Maar sommige voorbeelden uit de Bijbel zijn een waarschuwing voor ons. Soms gaat het om mannen en vrouwen die ooit Jehovah dienden en zijn goedkeuring hadden. Als we de Bijbel lezen, kunnen we erop letten wat ze verkeerd deden zodat we zelf die fout niet hoeven te maken.
We zien dat sommigen langzaam maar zeker verkeerde houdingen of neigingen ontwikkelden, met alle gevolgen van dien. Om daarvan te leren kunnen we ons afvragen: Hoe heeft die persoon die verkeerde manier van denken ontwikkeld? Zou het mij kunnen overkomen? Hoe kan dit voorbeeld me helpen die fout te vermijden? w11 15/12 1:19, 20

De dood van Absalom, door Albert Weisgerber

Absalom, een zoon van koning David, was een heel knappe man. Net als Satan liet hij een verkeerd verlangen in zijn hart opkomen. Hij wilde koning worden in de plaats van zijn vader, en daar had hij geen recht op. In een sluwe poging de troon te bemachtigen, deed hij alsof hij zich heel erg om het volk bekommerde en insinueerde hij dat de koning dat niet deed. Net als de Duivel in de Hof van Eden deed Absalom zich als een weldoener voor, terwijl hij ondertussen zijn eigen vader gemeen belasterde (2 Sam. 15:1-5). Had Absaloms plan succes? In zekere zin wel, want de Bijbel zegt: „Absalom bleef het hart van de mannen van Israël stelen” (2 Sam. 15:6). Maar uiteindelijk leidde zijn arrogantie tot zijn ondergang, en tot zijn dood en de dood van de duizenden die hij had ingepalmd (2 Sam. 18:7, 14-17). w12 15/7 2:4-6

  • Deceiving the Simple (james1948.wordpress.com)
    David’s son Absalom wanted power and position. He knew how to get it.
    2Sa 15:1 And it came to pass after this, that Absalom prepared him chariots and horses, and fifty men to run before him.
    +
    He feigned a loving compassion. These people, impressed with the following and the interest in their cause found someone they could bow to and reverence. Reverence won is hard to lose. They were betrayed by a kiss just as our Lord Jesus was betrayed. He won the hearts of people by showmanship, false wisdom and faked compassion.We find Absalom is like many false religionists and politicians to day. Showmanship draws. False wisdom wins. Fake compassion seals the doom of the simple people.
  • When David heard that Absalom was slain… (telescoper.wordpress.com)
    Thomas Tomkins, a Welsh composer who lived from 1572 to 1656. This piece is setting of a biblical text from the 2nd Book of Samuel (Chapter 18 Verse 13) when David learns of the death of his son Absalom. In the King James version this reads
  • Absalom and the Spirit of Lucifer (briancoatneydotcom.wordpress.com)
    There is a great turmoil, plotting and conspiracy swirling around David and his throne. Absalom has men giving him counsel about how to defeat David so he can rule the people in his stead. The plan was to track down David, kill him and bring all the people back to Absalom. There was a man named Hushai who double crossed Absalom and thwarted the plans. Hushai sent message to David about Absalom’s plans and Absalom ended up dead.
    +
    The story of Absalom’s rebellion is a picture of a heavenly rebellion. Absalom died on a tree thus fulfilling a mysterious picture of the end of Lucifer’s trying to rest the throne away from God. Later God promised David he would never fail to have a descendant on the throne. Of course we know who that is it is Jesus himself who ever lives to reign forever and forever. Amen.
  • April 8th (learning2walkdaily.wordpress.com)
    Throwing himself on God’s mercy, David looks for a turnaround from his afflictions. He will not allow the men to stop Shimei from calling out to him, recounting his shortcomings. Do we do the same thing, reviewing all our trials and tribulations, looking for a “break” from God? Or, do we find a way to praise Him throughout any situation, learning from our mistakes as we go? Do we trust and obey?
  • Absolom and the Spirit of Lucifer (briancoatney.com)
    Absalom died hanging on a tree. The Bible says “cursed is anyone who is hanged on a tree.” Jesus was in fact hung on a tree called the cross. God made him (Jesus) who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.[11] Jesus became sin. This is where it gets a little deep, but just stay with me. What this means is Jesus became sin or, Satan (Lucifer) indwelt humanity, on the cross. He died as us (Satan indwelt man) on our behalf. What took place on the cross is quite a bit more radical than most either know or want to admit.
  • Psalm 143 – I Stretch Out My Hands To You (graceofourlord.com)
    David is paying the price for his sin with Bathsheba, and his atrocious murder of his loyal friend, Uriah the Hittite – of which Nathan warned him to be prepared for in 2 Samuel 12:7-12.  Psalm 143 is another great model of prayer for us today. In the midst of praying for his deliverance, David also prays not only for deliverance, but for strength to serve God better:
  • Underhanded Leadership (garyrunn.com)
    Underhanded leaders play upon people’s emotions when they are needy. In so doing they diminish the credibility of the current leader. Underhanded leaders exaggerate their own ability to solve problems and lead. They seek to establish their own authority as they lie about their superior’s.  Underhanded leaders will always mask their true intentions behind hypocritical actions that look like empathy.Beware of underhanded leaders below you. Even more, beware of becoming an underhanded leader who diminishes, exaggerates, and subverts the authority of others.
  • Holding onto Offense – Who made you the ‘Righteous’ Judge? (diaryofasuperchamp.wordpress.com)
    While our human emotion and sentiment may tend to say that what Absalom did served Amnon right, the problem is that what he did also served him (Absalom) wrong. As a result of his justice, he broke the fellowship he had with his father (David), he caused division and turmoil within the family, he lost the good life he was enjoying in Jerusalem, and he had to flee in fear and live in fear of retribution. Yes, Absalom punished Amnon, but he also punished himself.
