Christ Will Reject the Whorish Bride
two walk together, except they be agreed?
Sometimes we tend to let the most simple of bible allegories escape us. The above verse is an example of this. As the bride of Christ walking in agreement with our Bridegroom means we don’t question His commandments. When Christ and His Bride walk together it is not a fifty-fifty relationship, there is no compromise on His part. If we are walking in agreement with Him it is only because we are in complete obedience to Him. The Bride must completely submit to her Husband.
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as
unto the Lord.
The dramatic rise of feminism in the 20th century has caused the world to forget that the woman is supposed to submit to her husband, not the other way around. And sadly, this direct rebellion against the Godly order of things has crept into the body of Christ. Just one example are the women under the delusion that they are anointed to be pastors. Scripture is clear that women are not permitted to teach or have authority over men (1 Timothy 2:12 KJV).
You see, a woman’s attitude towards men, especially husbands, is analogous to the relationship between the Bride of Christ and the Bridegroom. This is why the bible teaches that the woman is never to usurp authority over the man.
A Whorish Bride
And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of
an harlot, and subtil of heart. (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide
not in her house:
The signs of a rebellious bride can be plainly seen throughout the so-called “church”. She has a wandering eye. Instead of tending to her house she is out living in compromise with the world. She is always looking to indulge and satisfy her flesh. To Christ this is considered whoredom, yet to the modern church it is just business as usual. In this whorish church men literally bring their whores to sit next to them in the pews, brazenly daring God to judge them.
Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning:
let us solace ourselves with loves. For the goodman is not at home, he is
gone a long journey: He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come
home at the day appointed.
The “goodman” spoken of here is none other than our Bridegroom, Jesus Christ. We see this allegory of the rich man going on a long journey echoed in the parables of Christ Himself in Matthew 25:14-30 (KJV) and Mark 13:34 (KJV). Make no mistake; this rebellious Bride is a whore. Will Christ be joined to a harlot?
Where Are Your Priorities?
They will not frame their doings to turn unto their
God: for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, and they have not
known the LORD.
Our God is a jealous God, Christ will not put up with a Bride who is unfaithful. But Satan makes it so easy for us to get obsessed with the cares of this world. I’m not talking about working or caring for you and your family, but the lusts and distractions that we allow to keep us from pursuing our relationship with Christ.
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit
the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor
adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor
thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall
inherit the kingdom of God.
Scripture is clear, we must stop making excuses for our sin! If we are not attempting to bring our sin nature under submission we will not enter Heaven, no exceptions. Were you told that all you had to do was ‘accept Christ’ and you were okay? You were lied to! You’ve had a false conversion experience. Those who indulge their flesh without brokenness and a repentant heart do not know Christ.
What is important to you? Do all the chairs in your living room face the television? Anyone that comes there will immediately know what takes priority in your house. We have to seriously reprioritize our lives with Christ in the center. Don’t have the time to pray? Get rid of your television. Turn off the radios in your cars and sell your portable media devices. These things rob God of time that should be spent with Him.
How Do You Tithe?
Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye
say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
Under the old covenant we tithed money and unblemished animals to the priesthood, but today the kingdom of God is within us (Luke 17:21 KJV). So how do we render our tithes and offerings to Him? He doesn’t need our money; the way we sow tithes and offerings to the kingdom is by spending time with God and ministering to others. Everything we do for God’s kingdom is a tithe (Mark 9:41 KJV).
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where
moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But
lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth
corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your
treasure is, there will your heart be also.
This is where our tithes and offerings go, straight up to Heaven. These are the treasures of the Christian, the interest we have earned from the talents of gold that God has entrusted to His profitable servants (Matthew 25:14-30 KJV).
