Leviticus 19:29-31 (NKJVS)
“Do not prostitute your daughter, to cause her to be a harlot, lest the land fall into harlotry, and the land become full of wickedness.
“You shall keep My Sabbaths and reverence My sanctuary: I am the Lord.
“Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.“
Hosea 4:7-12 “The more they increased, The more they sinned against Me; I will change their glory into shame. They eat up the sin of My people; they set their heart on their iniquity. And it shall be: like people, like priest.
So I will punish them for their ways, and reward them for their deeds. For they shall eat, but not have enough; they shall commit harlotry, but not increase; because they have ceased obeying the Lord.
The Idolatry of Israel “Harlotry, wine, and new wine enslave the heart. My people ask counsel from their wooden idols, and their staff informs them. For the spirit of harlotry has caused them to stray, and they have played the harlot against their God.”
While these are OT Scriptures, the moral laws are still applicable in the Body of Christ.
Here is a raw paraphrase…….form the Message Bible.
A paraphrase is not a word for word translation from the original Hebrew or Greek/Aramaic/Latin language into English.
In layman’s terms, it’s just another way of saying……“in other words.”
“The more priests, the more sin. They traded in their glory for shame. They pig out on my people’s sins. They can’t wait for the latest in evil. The result: You can’t tell the people from the priests, the priests from the people.
I’m on my way to make them both pay and take the consequences of the bad lives they’ve lived. They’ll eat and be as hungry as ever, have sex and get no satisfaction.
They walked out on me, their God, for a life of rutting with whores. “Wine and whiskey leave my people in a stupor. They ask questions of a dead tree, expect answers from a sturdy walking stick. Drunk on sex, they can’t find their way home. They’ve replaced their God with their genitals.”
When the false Prosperity Gospel came, we did increase (not according to the will of God), but simultaneously, we’ve increased into more perversion.
As I was scrolling on FB, there was a praise and worship group, mostly women. But this one “Praiser” was wearing the attire of a harlot. High heels, stilettos, no doubt, and cleavage that left no room for imagination. We are seeing this trend of tight jeans too, both male and female.
It seems to me that “come as you are” is for real.
People are coming into the house of worship not dressed to worship God but in the spirit of the harlot to attract opposite or same sex people.
IF the right kind of worldly music is played, there is no doubt in my mind that under the influence of the spirit of the harlot, some of these women will strip right in the house of worship. Men will strip right in the house of worship and an orgy would be underway.
It’s happened in one church in NJ where a pastor engaged in a threesome….a pastor, his wife, and a male deacon………in the house of worship, in a secluded part of the house of God.
Pick up your jaw from the floor.
We know that child molestation is almost a common thing in the house of worship.
Pastor Sharon Daughtery’s church…..Victory Christian Center in Tulsa, OK, her daughter was involved in covering up child molestation a couple of years ago. The ex-male employee was given a 55 year prison sentence for “forcible oral sodomy of a child, lewd molestation….and other crimes.
And some of you married oral and anal sex proponents need strong deliverance from these unclean spirits.
Lewdness is now the new sacred (see Jude 4).
Many women will argue that this is the way the world is dressing and there is nothing out there except these kinds of clothes.
When you have to drape your legs, it is an indication that your dress is inappropriate to wear for a worship service. In one place, and even in many places, at the front row, unless it was the pastor’s wife, ladies are showing too much leg. And even if it is the pastor’s wife, when the cameras are panning and they capture you, the first thing that is noticeable are your legs.
Folks, I’ve have concluded that most of the houses of worship is no longer operating in the fear of the Lord. What is happening is that we have forsaken decorum. It’s almost as if we need to keep the cameras off of people and keep it on the pulpit. Even pastors are losing it. Wearing muscle shirts in vests, wearing no jackets. Wearing tight jeans.
These are clear signs that lewdness may be prevalent in the house of worship and most pastors are not taking action.
Brothers…..pastors…..bishops……where is the common sense?
There are many reasons why “legalism” is utter bondage where the policing of everything we do got out of hand. However, there is just some things that is just common sense. What we wear can incite lust. What we see can incite lust. What we think about can incite lust. If what we say, wear, and do provokes someone to lust, we need to make corrections to avoid causing others to fall into sin.
We all know that there are women preachers on the stage wearing stilettos, and strutting their stuff like they are on the red carpet. With no shame.
Hoping that males would drool and women would be envious and jealous.
EX Ministries brought out some serious revelation about the purpose of the red carpet that it is used as a place to worship the gods.
But from Wikipedia, we find these words…..
“The earliest known reference to walking a red carpet in literature is in the play Agamemnonby Aeschylus, written in 458 BC. When the title character returns from Troy, he is greeted by his vengeful wife Clytemnestra who offers him a red path to walk upon:
“Now my beloved, step down from your chariot, and let not your foot, my lord, touch the Earth. Servants, let there be spread before the house he never expected to see, where Justice leads him in, a crimson path.” Agamemnon, knowing that only gods walk on such luxury, responds with trepidation…..”
Even though this was a play, yet, we see that there may be some truth about the worship of gods in the red carpet. Look at all the dignitaries that go to certain high profile places and you will more than likely see the “red carpet treatment.”
So when you watch the Oscars and other high class world events, and people are afforded the VIP treatment of walking on the red carpet, know for sure that it is the worshipping of gods.
And we know that many people that claim to be professed believers have strut their “stuff” on that carpet. Women all over the world are watching who is wearing what.
And looking like a………..god or goddess, even calling themselves…..divas.
Women are stimulated by touch but they like to see too.
There are two reality shows that came to my attention.
“Preacher’s EX” or something like that and “Preacher’s Daughters.”
All you see is female flesh. The spirit of the harlot is not infiltrating the house of worship. The spirit of the harlot is a stronghold in the house of worship. You see, when you feel good in church, something may be amiss. When there is no conviction, not all of the time, but a spiritual check up of the convicting power of the Holy Spirit as the Word of God is preached, your sin may be safe.
In these reality shows, you see women that were once pastor’s wives, or divorced from their preacher husbands, they go out clubbing, dressing like a whore, cussing, drinking, living like the world. And do not get me wrong. Whatever happened may have triggered a “tit for tack.”
“My former husband did this to me and I am going to have my time.”
However, this is no excuse for sinning against the Lord.
The deliberate intent to wear provocative clothing and hunting for male or female companionship to help “heal” wounds of the current or past is no excuse. The Bible tells us the that body was not created for fornication but for the Lord. We must understand that the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. The Lord can heal us more ways than we hurt.
All we are doing is hurting ourselves more instead of allowing God to heal us. Using anarchy as a means to use illicit sex as a pharmacy.
But what is worse is that lust was in the heart and mind of male and females and we just look for an excuse to “let it loose.”
The Bible is clear that when you sow to the flesh, you shall reap of the flesh corruption (see Galatians 6:7-8).
All of a sudden, we feel that we could walk out on God to justify the sins of the flesh because someone did you wrong? That proves that sin was lurking and sometimes, for some folk, all they need is a little justification to let it all hang out. What’s worse is that this same attitude is brought into the worship service and the hook ups begin.
The power of femininity lurks in almost every local house of worship. The only intent of the power of femininity is to bring a man under their spell. It is a form of witchcraft to pull a man from a place of discipline into her arena of perversion. And men that fall for their seduction are mighty men that were slain by them. These men never recover and their shame follows them to the grave.
The spirit of the harlot is unleashed in places where a move of God is pending or the move of God is in full gear. What happens is that people are unsuspecting of the spirit of the harlot.
What is also lurking among men is the spirit of lust. Where in the privacy of their minds and their bedroom, in the fantasy sex play room, they “play with themselves” to climax.
Or worse, they hook up with the spirit of the harlot in a woman, they join themselves in fulfilling the desires of the flesh and mind where sin is conceived, and brings forth death.
Then there is the preacher’s daughters that live in “youthful lusts.”
They act like the world in imaginable ways, with ease.
Their dads are supposedly living godly lives but these teenage girls are living lascivious lives.
Wearing provocative clothing and acting like strippers in the streets and other venues.
These things ought not to be but they are happening in the house of worship.
2 Corinthians 6:14-18, 7:1. Is its only remedy.
It’s time to come out from among them and be separate or be destroyed with them (see Revelation 21:7, 22:11).
