Eph 5:5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. There is a weakness in man and woman, that will deliver them into the hands of an angry God. For a Christian, the Bible states that;”The Flesh is week but the Spirit is willing.
Christianity has been able to deal with the weakness of the flesh, but the un-believer cannot control his human weakness to satisfy the flesh. In Scripture God deals with the flesh and the Spirit. Whores & Whoremongers are depicted in too manners,
1. The Physical lust for sex
2. The False religions that fill the world today.
1. The Flesh. Eze 16:30-36 How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious(Arrogantly domineering or overbearing) whorish (bawdy, careless, debauched, depraved, dissipated, dissolute, flirtatious, immoral, in-continent, indecent, intemperate, lascivious, lecherous, lewd, libertine, libidinous, licentious, light, loose, lustful, profligate, rakish, reckless, salacious, self-gratifying, self-indulgent, sportive, sporty, un-chaste)woman;
In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire; But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband! (God is stating here that, any woman, having sex with anyone who is not her husband is, immoral, indecent, self-gratifying, and a whore.)
They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom. And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary. Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the Lord: Thus saith the Lord God; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them;
As stated here, the scripture tells us that whores, as they became pregnant, aborted their children so they could continue to satisfy their need for sex and without the burden of children, that was a result of their whoredoms.
Adultery was by the law of Moses made a capital crime.(In, Eze 16:30-36, We see the proof that a Lesbian Bisexual Trans-gender life style is sinful and un-respectful. Mans idea of right and wrong is the same as his view of self-righteousness, its as filthy rags.
This notorious adulteress, the criminal at the bar, being in the foregoing verses found guilty, here has sentence passed upon her. It is ushered in with solemnity.
Eze_16:35. The prophet, as the judge, in God’s name calls to her, O harlot! hear the word of the Lord. Our Saviour preached to harlots, for their conversion, to bring them into the kingdom of God, not as the prophet here, to expel them out of it. We see here the difference between the Law of Judgment and the Law of Grace. Whores & Whoremongers not only(According to God) not only are out to satisfy the lust of their flesh, but also to receive reward from their lovers, for their acts.
Women and men both, that act according to the flesh, are degrading their own bodies.
Many want to call the Gay and Lesbian Bisexual Trans-gender lifestyle, an act of nature, but in fact its an act of Satanic actions upon them, which they are ready to follow at any cost. This is not inherited nor an disease, its acceptance of sinful, acceptance of unrighteousness. Henry States about these verses; The crimes which this harlot stands convicted of, and is now to be condemned for, are,
1. The violation of the first two commandments of the first table by idolatry, which is here called her whoredoms with her lovers (so she called them,
Hos.2:12, because she loved them as if they had been indeed her benefactors), that is, with all the idols of her abominations, the abominable idols which she served and worshiped. This was the sin which provoked God to jealousy.
2. The violation of the first two commandments of the second table by the murder of their own innocent infants:
The blood of thy children which thou didst give unto them. It is not strange if those that have cast off God and his fear break through the strongest and most sacred bonds of natural affection. Their sins are aggravated from the consideration, Eze. 16:43. And, (3.) The vexation which their sins gave to God, whom they ought to have pleased: “Thou hast fretted me in all these things, not only angered me, but grieved me.” Pro. 6:34, Pro. 6:35. He will recompense their way upon their head, Eze. 16:43. In all the judgments God executes upon sinners we must see their own way recompensed upon their head; they are dealt with not only as they deserved, but as they procured. It is the end which their sin, as a way, had a direct tendency to.
A Whoremonger is a whore master, A person that has temporary or perminate control of a salacious, self-gratifying, person.
An apostate church is a harlot. Those that fall away with false, Doctrine, Teaching, prophecy, visions and misinterpretation of Scripture are whores. The Bible teaches us that God has delivered the truth of Salvation and there are many that refuse to believe. People around the world have fallen away to Idol worship. Now an Idol is,
1. A person loved and honored to adoration.
2. Any thing on which we set our affections; that to which we indulge an excessive and sinful attachment.
3. An image, form or representation, usually of a man or other animal, consecrated as an object of worship; a pagan deity. Idols are usually statues or images, carved out of wood or stone, or formed of metals, particularly silver or gold.
4. An idol is any thing which usurps the place of God in the hearts of his rational creatures.
So as you can see, anything can be made into an Idol, a person, place or thing. Many today have become whores and whoremongers with, the worship, of Monkies, Cattle, Golden Calfs an People that they say are better in respect to the True God Jahova.(I.E. Mohamid, Buddha, Jim Jones, David Corresh, Etc.) Jerusalem is so if she become idolatrous. How has the faithful city become a harlot! Rome is so represented in the Revelation, when it is marked for ruin, as Jerusalem here.
Rome will fall as was its predecessor of old, because of its lack of understanding of scripture. Catholosism has made its Pope an Idol. Is there anywhere in scripture, where God states that there is any one human being, that will be the head of the Church, anywhere in scripture, where God directs us to any human being, to which we turn to for all direction in the interpretation of Scripture? No.
The Bible States that; 1Jo 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
Mar 13:11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Rev. 17:1, Come, and I will show thee the judgments of the great whore. Those who will not hear the commanding word of the Lord and obey it shall be made to hear the condemning word of the Lord and shall tremble at it. Let us attend while judgment is given. The Great Whore is, false religions, that have made men to commit whoredoms against the truth and God. Calling Jesus accursed in the sigh of the world.
