Lamech: Polygamist and Murderer

Lamech was a polygamist and a murderer.

Genesis 3:23 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.
24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.

Taking multiple wives has been linked to murder and violence from the beginning!

That’s how we know that Genesis 6:1-4 is not about fallen angels it’s about fallen humans with unbridled lust violence, which creates fatherless children with desires to be greater than others (giants/superstars).

YOU ARE IN THE REAL MOVIE “NOAH PART 2”, BUT WHAT IS YOUR ROLE???? – King, Lame, or Calamity???

YOU ARE IN THE REAL MOVIE “NOAH PART 2”, BUT WHAT IS YOUR ROLE???? – King, Lame, or Calamity??? ::: A generation that desires “sex without children” and “money without work”, is one generation away from complete failure and destruction. Pleasure and Benefits without Commitments and Covenants is THE ISSUE of today. Noah’s generation’s earth was destroyed by water. This next one similar to Noah will be destroyed by fire. However, Gods deliverance will come thru people that reject those “Lame” ideas.

Both Noah AND his wife were children of two different men named “Lamech.” Lamech means reason driven by emotion rather than emotion driven by reason. Noah’s wifes father wanted 2 wives for pleasure, Noah’s father wanted “rest” production without work. Their deviations for pleasure and laziness led to violence which multiplied exponentially until the earth was filled with violence.

Noah came out of that chaos, discipled His sons to work and build the ark in the presence of the mockers, and his family was delivered by obedience to God.

There’s so much to teach on this and meanings to unpack, and it goes so much deeper, but since this is just a blog and not church, I’ll leave you with this question – Are you a spiritual King or a spiritual Lame? That will determine whether you are part of the Deliverance or the Calamity.

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.
