Did God Change Saul’s Name to Paul?

Who changed Saul’s name to Paul?

Did God do it? No. God called Him Saul when he sent them to preach to Europeans and Asians:

Acts 13:2

As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.

On his first trip, Saul met a Roman leader named Sergius Paulus. This Roman leader also had a Judean Sorcerer with him named Elymas:

Acts 13:7

Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God. 8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.

Saul preaches the gospel to the Roman deputy, and curses the Judean sorcerer with blindness for trying to stop the gospel of the Kingdom from being preached:

Acts 13:11

And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. 12 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.

After this, Saul (a Hebrew Israelite of the tribe of Benjamin) named himself Paul after his first convert as an apostle of a different ethnicity than himself:

Acts 13:13

Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia: and John departing from them returned to Jerusalem.

Saul’s first trip was reflecting his entire ministry. The unbelieving Yehudim were constantly trying to stop Paul from preaching the gospel of the kingdom to Europeans and Asians.

His use of different languages to preach the Kingdom of God was so instrumental that he gave himself a European nickname. He named himself after his first Roman convert as an apostle.

Paul’s use of different languages was not to confuse people, or to disrespect God’s law, or because he didn’t like his Hebrew heritage, or because he was ashamed of his holy lifestyle.

Paul’s use of different languages was so that he could relate to different ethnicities of people as easily as possible, so that he could spread the gospel of the kingdom of Christ:

1 Corinthians 9

19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.

20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;

21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.

22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

23 And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.

The Unlearned and Unstable Twist Apostle Paul’s Words against God’s Words

Apostle Paul proved that SALVATION couldn’t come from the law, but He never disrespected the Law (AUTHORITY) of YAH.

Paul had a prophetic understanding of the the curse of the law, and therefore rightly divided it – the ceremonial & cultural law from the moral & natural law – in order to bring the salvation of Israel to the Gentiles.

Apostle Paul preached entrance into the kingdom by faith, but he never violated the moral law or taught rebellion against it.

I can always tell the Unlearned and Unstable (2 Peter 3:16) by their willingness to try and twist Paul’s Words against God’s Word, to their own destruction.

The Holy Spirit leads you into all Truth. Unstable Souls lead you into all Confusion.

Psalms 119:126 It is time for thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void thy law

Isaiah 42:21 The Lord is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Romans 7:12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

The Missing Link in YOUR Spiritual Warfare

If you never correct yourself, your correction of others becomes useless. Its not about you vs them, its about GOD Himself.

When you also correct yourself, GOD Himself makes your words more powerful.

People focus so much on tearing down strongholds but they don’t focus on verse 6, the “other half,” the “missing half” of spiritual warfare. Fulfilling your own obedience.

2 Corinthians 10

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

God can’t fully revenge disobedience until your obedience is fulfilled. The same zeal you have for correcting others, use it on yourself. It will make your warfare more effective. Separate the precious from the vile, then you will really be like God’s mouth (Jeremiah 15:19). If Jeremiah had to adjust his vocabulary, who are we to say we can never improve the way we deliver God’s message? You don’t have to back down from the message at all, just purify it. Then God will make sure He does the rest, and He will win His battles for you.

Jeremiah 15
19 Therefore thus saith the Lord, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them.
20 And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the Lord.
21 And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.

The apostle Paul was great at this. There are many scriptures in the Bible where you see Paul saying (paraphrased) “This is what the Lord is saying, and this part is just my opinion…” If only we could understand Paul at the same level Paul understood the Word of God!

God could trust Paul with greater revelation because He knew that Paul could discern rightly between his voice and Gods voice. Paul honored the Lord by doing this. Paul was careful never to attribute his opinion or his excitement as the infallible word of God.

Moses was a great prophet, but he failed to get into the promised land because he let his anger distort God (Read Numbers 20). God told him to speak to the rock. The rock represented Christ. The rock had already been struck once. Instead of speaking to the rock, Moses struck it again, twice.

Elijah was a great prophet, but he let his emotions distort Gods viewpoint and it affected his ability to act on Gods word. Elijah had to give over his responsibility to a prophet with double portion AND a king, just to complete what Elijah was supposed to do by himself (Read 1 Kings 17). This one paragraph could be an entire book of understanding.

Saints of today, we need to make sure we are humble enough to fulfill our obedience, and purify our words. Purity and Consistency instead of hypocrisy and posturing will make us more powerful.

Paul and the Lambs Wife

Paul taught that men should work a job, not only to eat, but to support their wife and family. Paul did not have a wife, but he still worked a job in ministry.

However, even though he wasnt supposed to, Paul additionally worked a natural-based job to help maintain the purity of the Lambs Wife (the Church), instead of joining in or competing with the wolves who saw it as their job to eat off the Lambs wife by corrupting the church instead of building her up.

Isn’t it interesting that a lot of the prophets, apostles and teachers in the Bible who called the Church, or God’s people, back to purity were either working natural jobs or fresh off of regular jobs? Jesus was a carpenter, Paul was a tent maker, Daniel was an administrative official, Nehemiah was a cupbearer, Amos was a farmer.

It’s not a sin to be in full time ministry – but sometimes, when there are too many ministers that see it as their job to eat the flock instead of feed the flock – God sends in fresh workers who don’t have pressure to eat off their ministry, but will instead work to restore purity.

Who Reveals the Mystery? – Calvin & Arminius or Christ & the Church

Men try to discuss the deep things of God using dead men like Calvin and Arminius (dead men’s bones).

The Holy Spirit reveals the mystery of the gospel of Christ using the marriage of Christ & the Church.

Ephesians 5
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

Voodoo and Ku Klux Christians : Syncretism – Are you Christian or Cretan?

Voodoo and Ku Klux Christians

Do you know how many voodoo practitioners also love Jesus “too?”

Do you know how many Ku Klux Klansmen are faithful in their church and claim Jesus “too?”

It’s called “SYNCRETISM” folks! And it’s the opposite of True Worship.

Whenever you try to “add Jesus” to a list of other false idols and cultural demonic strongholds you are not worshipping Jesus Christ at all.

Jesus did not die on the cross and resurrect from the dead so He could be the last option on your iPod, or be added to your list of authentic hip hop alternatives. He’s not interested in syncretizing with you Greek Idol or Masonic covenants either. If you can’t get rid of the false you are not in the Truth. He is the King of All.

John 4
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

syn·cre·tism

[sing-kri-tiz-uhm, sin-]  Show IPA

noun

1.

the attempted reconciliation or union of different or opposing principles, practices, or parties, as in philosophy or religion.

Origin: 
1610–20;  < Neo-Latin syncretismus  < Greek synkrētismós  union of Cretans, i.e., a united front of two opposing parties against a common foe, derivative of synkrēt ( ízein ) to syncretize + -ismos -ism

CRETANS ARE ALWAYS LIARS

Its interesting that the word syncretism came from the root word meaning: “a union of Cretans”

Look what the Apostle Paul in Titus said about the Cretans (Crete was an actual city in Greece; Paul discerned and addressed this spiritual root in that city hundreds of years before the word “syncretism” was even coined):

Titus 1

11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, the Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.

13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

Cretans and “Syncretizers” of today hate purity, they would rather defile everything by mixing false worship, cultural idolatry, fables, and the commandments of men with it. They profess that they know God, but in works they deny Him.

So are you a Christian or Cretan?

Greco-Roman Religion vs The Kingdom of God

Greek Religious culture was all about articulation, art, oratory and vocal performance. That’s why when Herod gave a great speech they worshipped him and said “it’s the voice of a god, not a man.”Acts 1221 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.23 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.24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.But in the midst of this God built a faith that was about reality, with real people instead of performers, who walked in real obedience, real truth, and real love.Paul made sure he showed the difference in the kingdom of God and the Greek mentality:1 Corinthians 21 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.Unfortunately when Constantine made Christianity the official religion of Rome thru the Roman Catholic church, many of the worldly philosophies and mentalities began to destroy the Church of God from within. Many of these things are stuck within the way we try to serve God today.Today God is looking for a people who will worship Him in Spirit and Truth and leave the Greco- Roman mentality behind. Those who will embrace the cross, and walk in the reality of the Spirit of God and obedienceo instead of the eyes and praise of men.Those are the people who will have the power to obey God when deception is passed on as truth.

I Don’t Wish Destruction On Anyone – It Actually Brings Tears to My Eyes

I don’t wish destruction on anyone. It’s so sad to see people marching confidently towards spiritual destruction. It literally brings tears to your eyes.

Philippians 3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

Keep in mind he’s talking about “Christian Leaders” (false apostles) that compete with him and his pure message of a heaven based lifestyle and the Cross of Jesus Christ. He’s not talking about “sinners” in this scripture.

He’s saying “follow me instead of false Christian leaders that corrupt you with earthly minded ministry, they will be destroyed in the end, and I am crying about it.”

The main reason we believe God gave us this book in such a supernatural way is because many people start out with pure intentions in God, but then get deceived by Satan. He is the master deciever. People don’t start out planning to become wolves. They start out loving the cross, not as enemies of the Cross. Nobody says “I want to be a false prophet when I grow up.”

Nobody says “I’m going to build an excellent fruitful music/preaching ministry, then corrupt it, cause people to fall away from the faith, and infect the next generation with spiritual fornication and adultery.”

Nobody says “I’m going to minister to a bunch of young Christians and teach them to follow the world instead of the Holy Ghost!”

Nobody starts out their ministry saying “I’m going serve serve God for seven years, then commit adultery and divorce my wife and bring shame to the Body of Christ!”

Noone purposefully says: “Yes, I’m going to go find a move of God on the brink of revival – and destroy it and stop the purpose of God by earthly minded competition, branding, and witchcraft!”

These things happen because of deception. That’s no excuse, but it is a reason. So when you see things like this happen, it really does bring tears to your eyes.

The dreams and interpretations and real life examples in Killing Idols for REVIVAL are meant to expose the lies that Satan uses to deceive generation after generation after generation, over and over and over again. (None of this is new, its not just “the young people.”)

But in Jesus Name, let THIS GENERATION be the Generation that SEEKS GOD’S FACE! (Psalms 24). Then the King of Glory Will Come In!!!

We will SEEK GOD’S FACE, and Stand AGAINST the Devil’s Deceptions, and EXALT JESUS OVER EVERYTHING at The PROTEST.

How Will You Stand When Things Get Even Hotter?

How Will You Stand When Things Get Even Hotter?

If you can’t stand against these little simplistic deceptions and wolves that eat people just because they they don’t read their bible, how will you stand in the day of supernatural deceptions?

Satan is turning his ministers into the Angels of light and false hope right now, and he’s empowering them with an anointing to do great signs and wonders. That’s why the Bible says that many will fall away from the faith.

How will you stand?

By the grace of God? No you won’t, not if you resist growth and sanctification.

The grace of God works to build you up, and continue to sanctify you. It does not stop once you get “saved.” So if you resist grace, sanctification, holiness, and the Holy Ghost, were you ever really saved?

I can honestly say I never understood this Scripture more than I do now, because I have lived it and seen it with my own two eyes:

Acts 20
26 Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.

27 For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.

28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

I told you before: Grace Creates Holiness.

Being Married to Christ in the Day of Talented Spiritual Prostitutes: How the Lamb’s Wife Behaves Herself

Being Married to Christ in the day of Talented Spiritual Prostitutes :
aka How the Lambs Wife Behaves Herself

The sorcerer can do powerful miracles, a Buddhist can be kind and very loving, and a Muslim can say very wise things.

Powerful miracles, loving kindness, and wise sayings can be used to glorify God. But those things without the context of a faithful covenant with Jesus Christ are actually spiritually worthless, and probably harmful.

What separates the kingdom of God and Christianity from being “A” way into being “THE” way is this:

An exclusive covenant relationship with the living speaking God through the blood sacrifice and grace of Jesus Christ.

A true Christian doesn’t put his faith in the pigpen of other religions competing for slop.

A true Christian is not the one trying to be down and fit in like life is a permanent high school popularity contest. A true Christian is in the “in crowd” of Heaven, and growing the crowd with true leadership.

A true Christian is not like the kid trying to get a date. A true Christian is the one married to Christ already.
There are two spiritual states: in covenant with Christ or deceived in sin. Christ is not in competition with other gods for relevance. All other idols are nothing, but they represent devils (1 Cor 8:4, 1 Cor 10:19-26). A true Christian understands this and lives accordingly, teaching truth and showing love from a position of authority and with spiritual power.

A true Christian doesn’t compromise and make unGodly covenants with unbelievers to get fake conversions and publicity or exposure.

A true Christian that knows who their God really is represents God with holiness, repentance, power, and exclusive love.

POWER

Daniel 11:32 the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

– Those that know their God will be strong and do exploits. Knowing God gives you a position of strength.

;

REPENTANCE

Acts 17: 30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent.

– Those following and imitating God are also commanding men everywhere to repent, and turning people’s hearts to Him.

EXCLUSIVE COVENANT

Hosea 2: 16 And it shall be at that day, saith the Lord, that thou shalt call me Ishi (Husband); and shalt call me no more Baali (Lord).

– Those in covenant with God know that their relationship is an exclusive spiritual partnership

– Also see 2 Corinthians 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

;

MUSIC and Culture

When you make the switch from:

A believer who speaks the language of hip hop
To:
A hip hop guy that pays homage to idolatry but happens to be a Christian

You have made the subtle switch from biblical Christianity to apostate confusion. Substitute hip hop for any culture or subculture, and this is still true.

Your fruit is ruined even if you still “quote scriptures, do miracles, and say nice things.” Why? Because you’re not representing God for who He really is. You’re not representing POWER, REPENTANCE, or EXCLUSIVE COVENANT.

Why would you switch from hip-hop being an option within Christ to making Christ an option within hip-hop (or any culture, for that matter)? When you know God, you know what your spiritual last name is. The last name is the name of authority; it’s the name that’s passed on. If you’re really married to Christ, you’re not trying to hyphenate his last name. It’s Christ. No hyphenations. God’s kingdom takes preeminence permanently. It’s an EXCLUSIVE COVENANT.

Like a wife who doesn’t want to take her husband’s last name all the way, you want a way out. You want to leave an open door to keep your old identity. You want to keep remembrance of your old identity, because you don’t really want to change it anyway. You want to make divorce easier, so your covenant probably isn’t really real to begin with.

If you prepare for divorce, is your covenant real?

Hebrews 11 15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

People that are mindful to keep the identity of where they came from have an opportunity to return. But people that don’t look back to their old identity prove that they are looking for heaven, therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God. If you are not ashamed, but God is ashamed, what’s more important?

SPEAKING and Work

When you make the switch from preacher of righteousness to a motivational speaker that just happens to be in church on Sunday, you have switched into apostasy. That is, unless you: show exclusivity to Christ, (not putting Him in a bidding war with the other options) demand repentance, and exalt His name higher than your name as in a marriage.

When you refuse to be labeled as a Christian, you are effectively trying to divorce God by refusing to be associated exclusively with His Bride. When you place Christ besides other options, you effectively cheapen the gospel.

Let’s say America names you the greatest preacher, and decides to publicize you, get advice from you, and put you on a pedestal. Your job is to show that you are married to Christ, with his last name superseding yours (EXCLUSIVE COVENANT). Your job is also to show that He is your provider – you don’t need them to provide for you (POWER). Your job is also to make sure that they know that He commands them to repent and commit themselves to Him exclusively as well (REPENTANCE).

Let’s say you are invited to pray for the Presidential Inauguration. Your job is not to make the nation comfortable and say “everyone pray in the name of their god, while I pray in Jesus name.” You don’t get to take a day off from commanding men everywhere to repent. Your job is to say thru your prayer that there is only One God, and Jesus is the way. This shows that you don’t need the power, money, fame or platform that the President gave you, because God is your Provider. That shows Gods power. Your exclusive commitment portrays God for who He really is and accurately reflects what he requires from Believers. The true God is not an option on a buffet line, so to sell Him short is apostasy. If the President is a different religion, and you change your ministry to fit his religion instead of command repentance, that’s a violation of covenant, and getting benefits from it is spiritual prostitution.

Let’s say one day America names you the greatest Christian rapper. Your job is not to try your best to fit in and present Christ as the best option while you marry the hip hop culture. Your job is to present hip-hop as optional while you marry Christ. It’s to represent exclusivity to Christ. You need to sign no covenants or contracts with unbelievers, you don’t need their acceptance even if they gave it to you. You still command men to repent. Your job is not to distance yourself from the niche market formerly known as the bride of Christ.

But a Muslim doesn’t have to call himself a Muslim rapper? Why do I have to distinguish myself in Christ?

Covenant with the Creator thru Jesus Christ is Christianity. Other religions don’t compete with Jesus, they compete with each other as a whole league of invalid deceptions to distract from Jesus. The reason they don’t have to be exclusive is because they are all the same – sin and deception.

If you don’t know the difference in spiritual status between Islam and Christianity, are you really a Christian? Just the fact that you asked that question is a reason for you to examine yourself and see if you are in the faith. Are you even a believer? Islam is just a religion. Christianity is representing Jesus Christ with POWER, COMMANDING REPENTANCE, and in EXCLUSIVE COVENANT.

What if America names you the best Christian plumber? Do you have to write Jesus on all your pipes?

Here it goes! That mismatched metaphor from 1989 that just will not die. Well here’s the silver bullet:

Plumbing is not preaching. Plumbing is working with your hands. Preaching is a form of expressing convictions and beliefs. Music is opens up emotions to express affection, commitment, and devotion; i.e. worship. Music is a spiritual thing. Preaching is a spiritual thing. Plumbing is not. Plumbing and preaching are not equal. Music and plumbing are not equal.

If you are a Christian plumber and someone asked you what your testimony is, you tell them. If it’s true to Christ, it will probably show POWER, COMMAND REPENTANCE, AND SHOW EXCLUSIVE COVENANT.

If you are a preacher and someone asked you your testimony… How is your testimony true if it is opposite of what you preach?

If you’re preaching is not exclusively for Jesus Christ, is not married to Jesus Christ – and your worship is not exclusively for Jesus Christ and not married to Jesus Christ – then what testimony are you going to give them? Are you going to give them a testimony that is opposite of what you are actually doing?

If you make a decision to be a preacher or a decision to be a worshipper you’re making a spiritual decision. This is not a decision to make tents or do plumbing.

Paul demonstrated the professions of a Christian. He did not make idols for Diana or Zeus on the side. He did not supplement his ministry with a career that had spiritual influence against his ministry.

He worked with tents, inanimate objects with no spiritually negative influence. He supplemented his ministry with income from working with his hands to demonstrate and lead by example.

BiSpirituals claim to be doing the works of Paul, but Paul demonstrated exclusivity to Christ, marriage to Christ. Paul also commanded men everywhere to repent, and Paul did not need provision from work in idolatry.

BiSpirituals say they are like just Paul, being all things to all men… But what was Paul to idolaters? He was a punching bag and a rock target. Paul’s ministry was against the worshippers of Diana. Paul decimated their profits with his ministry, so their trade union got together to try to kill him. What is your ministry doing to the idolatrous professions of our time? Paul got beaten and persecuted by idolaters. That’s called taking up your cross. He did not partner with them to make some extra cash or spread his “gospel”, because that would’ve perverted “the Gospel”. (See Acts 19).

No, Paul didn’t write “Jesus” on all his tents, but he bore the reproach of standing for Christ exclusively in his ministry. He did not partner with idolatry to make his ministry bigger. If he used his speaking gift to sell his tents door to door, or made a musical jingle as a commercial to sell his tents, would that be sin? I doubt it. Tents are not idolatry. If he did the same thing for the temple of Diana, it would be sin.

People that use this “Christian Plumber” metaphor as an excuse for compromise – the Bible defines them as fools.

As a parable in the mouth of fools so the legs of the lame not equal. Proverbs 26:7

ARE YOU MAD? No, but Yes.
I am not mad at spiritual prostitutes at all. Why? They just don’t know what they are doing. One of two things will eventually happen:

  1. Their secular pimps will put them out on the street, then they will return to their Father God, and he will accept them with open arms. We all were whores at some point, and when we are forgiven much, we can love much.
  2. Either that will happen or, they will fall in live with the acceptance and maybe the money their spiritual pimps provide, and die in their sin and destruction.

That’s between them and God.

What I am mad at is the fact that the Body of Christ accepts spiritual whoredom as if it was really ministry. We turn the prostitutes into heroes, and they don’t even repent. They use their sin as springboard marketing into a better career outside of the “niche market” formerly known as the bride of Christ.

People imitate what they see… so the corruption spreads to the little ones, it spreads to the next generation that may have actually wanted to worship him in spirit and in truth, but now have been corrupted through ignorance.

But what if they are representing Christ to the world?

No they are not. If I want to be a missionary to Brazil or Guatemala, I don’t go there honoring ancient Aztec and Inca idols. I go there, I learn and speak their language, I love them, and I represent Jesus Christ EXCLUSIVELY. I command them to REPENT. And I operate in the POWER of God. There’s a huge difference between “speaking someone’s language” and honoring their idolatry.

And if you are a native Brazilian ministering to Brazilians, and you choose honor your culture over Christ, are you really a Christian at all? If you honor cultural idols or popular protocols over Christ, are you really a Christian at all?

Jesus told you that you have to be willing to hate your own father or mother in order to follow Him, and you won’t even hate the idols of your culture?

Talented Prostitution

If my wife wants to help out the household by making some extra cash, one thing I DON’T want her to do is go and be a prostitute.

But what if she is talented enough? No. Why not? Last name. Exclusively mine, anyone that wants to defile that needs to repent.

But what if she is attractive enough? No. Because she is EXCLUSIVELY mine, I have the POWER to provide for her without prostitution income, and you need to repent for asking.

But what if people really like her and they want to put her on a pedestal? No.

How about she dance at this gentleman’s club? They won’t touch her and they’ll really pay a lot. No. She’s exclusively mine. We don’t need that money. Repent for thinking about it.

THIS IS THE LAMB’s WIFE!
The Lambs Wife is His alone, and one of the most tragic things going on right now is spiritual wolves playing games with the Lambs Wife, and defiling her by example. I’m using completely biblical language and translating it to today’s terms to address a problem that has been growing in the body of Christ for several generations.

This is not a debate or an intellectual argument. This is the Lamb’s Wife! She is to behave herself a certain way. We are just trying to get her ready for Jesus Christ’s return.
