GOD DOESN’T WANT PIMPS, HE WANTS NERDS! – Was polygamy or polygyny ever Right or Godly or okay in the Bible?

Heres the principle of first mention: you can always get God’s heart on an issue by seeing when is first mentioned.

The first mention of polygamy (or polygyny) was with Lamech, who was not a good figure but a bad figure. He married two women, and killed one man.

Genesis 4
23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.

The first mention of marriage and the first instance of marriage was one man and one women. That’s Gods purpose.

Also, in the law of Moses God specifically warned them that when they got a king that the King would be tempted to be lifted up with pride and iniquity and that he would multiply gold unto himself, multiply horses unto himself, and multiply wives unto himself. He told them to make sure the king did not do this, but to instead spend their time handwriting the book of the law, i.e. the Torah. God doesn’t want’s pimps, he wants nerds.

Deuteronomy 17
17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold. 18 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites: 19 and it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the Lord his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them: 20 that his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.

Of course they failed… Because all the kings lifted up themselves above their brethren, multiplied wives unto themselves multiplied horses into themselves, and multiply gold and silver unto themselves.

Just because God allows something to happen without immediately striking someone down, doesn’t mean it was God’s plan. The examples in the first testament aren’t necessarily God’s perfect plan for Utopia, they are simply the record of what happened, and how hard God had to work to prepare a way for the Messiah to come to earth.

Confessions and Mercy

The LIE: don’t confess your sins, just confess that you are blessed and you will prosper, because God is merciful.

The TRUTH: if you confess and forsake your sins then God will give you mercy, and you will prosper.

Proverbs 28:13
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

The Ministry of Reconciliation Starts with Knowing the Terror of the Lord and Persuading Men

The ministry of reconciliation starts with knowing the terror of the Lord and persuading men. God resists the proud, but gives grace to those who are humbled. Then God’s goodness leads men to repentance and reconcilation with God, and being transformed into His Righteousness.

2 Corinthians 5:11-21

11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.

12 For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart.

13 For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.

14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:

15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

dark skinned vs light skinned… good hair vs bad hair????

I absolutely HATE WITH A PASSION the dark vs light and good hair vs bad hair culture. I believe in pursuing God’s creativity and beauty with what He gave you. Its all about confidence, not looking to emulate what the media shows you.

Iniquity is in the Heart of Men

The root of it is really just the sinful human nature that uses any chance it can get to spread pride, superiority, and self-seeking merchandising strategies.

Its not limited to just African American racism or Eurocentric culture either. Believe it or not in India there are caramel colored women that think they are ugly because they are not beige. They even have skin cream lighteners sold on nationally televised commercials where a lightskinned Indian woman gets paler and paler, and all the sudden her dream man wants her.

Proverbs 16
6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.

Men everywhere in every culture have to purify their iniquities with Mercy and Truth, and build their faith in God and His Creative Glory…

Gods Creativity and Your Confidence

Man looks on outward appearance, but God looks at the heart. Everyone has a purpose and if you connect to God’s Creativity your beauty will eventually shine.

The more you allow yourself to receive communication or marketing from the workers of iniquity, the more you will hate yourself and give them the advantage over you, because that’s Satan’s goal. Dark skin is just as beautiful as light skin but if the dark skin has no confidence and doesn’t smile, how can it be beautiful? (SoS 1:5 I am dark and lovely, black and comely…)

Discipline and Order

One of my sons has soft hair, one has harder hair. They both are appealing to me, but in culture coarser hair is considered lesser.

Why… because the human eye is drawn to order… that’s just a natural fact. Order is beauty because it makes you wonder about the person who ordered it. The human eye is also drawn to symmetry and balance.

It takes more work to bring order to harder hair than softer hair. Soft hair doesnt go wild until 2 or 3 inches, and can be ordered with a swipe of a comb. Coarse hair needs to be trained from the beginning. That’s why discipline is key.

A wild bush looks less appealing than a pine tree that grows straight up with straight needles. But when that bush is trimmed it is just as beautiful. Both the bush and the pine tree were created by God and have the same potential for beauty. One just needs more input and discipline.

As a matter of fact you can do more with the bush than you can do with the pine tree. The harder hair needs more discipline but it looks just as good and even better when it is disciplined.

I believe if you pursue God’s creativity with discipline you can be just as powerful and beautiful as someone who came out with an easier appealing look in the eyes of man.

Creativity, Confidence, Discipline, and Balance = Opportunity

That’s the value of using what God has given you even if it seems at first to be less in the eyes of man. Your confidence and discipline in God’s creativity can create something the world has never seen… Which can ultimately bring glory to God.

FRESH DINOSAUR BONES???

You’ll never hear the High Priests of Humanism aka Atheists bring out this scientific evidence that dinosaurs are very recent animals…

RUMOURS: Spiritual Leadership, Repentance, and Iniquity

When spiritual leaders in the kingdom of God refuse to live a clear example of repentance from their sins, they give the devil open space to make up rumors that are even worse than what really happened.

At the root of all sins, whether big or small, is the same iniquity. When a leader refuses repentance, they also supernaturally spread iniquity throughout those who are under their influence… Because you can cover up a symptom but the virus still spreads if there is no biblical new testament repentance.

A Little Leaven Leavens the Whole Loaf

Galatians 5:8-9 This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

Leadership should always be by example… Even leadership in repentance. One reason is because your followers won’t be able to resist or hide the symptoms (sins) of iniquity as well as you can. It will wreck their lives while you choose to save your reputation.
