*Be careful people! Pornography has a twin, same personality, but different name as you’ll see in the featured image; this is also why I really like comments, accountability and interaction are very much appreciated.* (Thank you Tanner)
“Ummmm… don’t leave your wife at home?”
Well… not exactly.
That thought is funny to me because my wife made a similarly playful comment to that effect when on our little sunrise morning date with Jesus and coffee.
I mean; that is a fair thought when reading today’s chapter of proverbs—18 “Come, let us drink our fill of love until morning; Let us delight ourselves with caresses.19 “For my husband is not at home, He has gone on a long journey; 20 He has taken a bag of money with him, At the full moon he will come home.” I mean, dude shoulda never left without tending to his wife, but that’s not the issue being communicated by this information.
The nature of the human condition is influenced to such a degree that without proper discipline acquired from a spirit of instruction, we’re forsaken to untrained senses, gullible to cave at the call of a harlot that symbolizes a consequence of sin that we experience in this world.
When I ask the question, “Who are the parents teaching this son such words?” I reflect on the ministry of Jesus Christ; Jesus is called “The Word of God”(Rev 19:13) for a reason, and now here we are; the Parent’s of us are speaking:
1 My son, keep my words
And treasure my commandments within you.
2 Keep my commandments and live,
And my teaching as the apple of your eye.
3 Bind them on your fingers;
Write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,” And call understanding your intimate friend;
5 That they may keep you from an adulteress,
From the foreigner who flatters with her words.
We are to “Keep”, “Bind”, and “Write” to memory, the wisdom that works in a way of which gives understanding to an experience needed NOT to endure for the sake of learning.
Don’t cave into the call of “her words”.
“Who is she?”
Her name is Pornography.
If you’re reading this, it’s likely you’ve been introduced to her already. And what’s worse is you might still be in bed with her? Thinking to yourself that it’s just the nature of the human condition, but you’d be wrong; it’s a choice of influence that resides in the souls of sinners (people spiritually separated from God).
If you are a husband or wife wilfully in bed with Pornography, then you are wilfully committing adultery; your marriage bed is defiled, but hear these words my son; it’s not just against your spouse in this world, but against the Husband of your soul that reconciles you to God; or have you forgotten His Name?
20 Jesus has taken a bag of money with him, At the full moon he will come home.”
Who took a bag of money (our debt of sin Hosea 1:2, 3:2) and purchased our love unto eternal life?
Or have you forgotten the sound of His voice?
When you think of your male or female neighbor, consider this; remember to “say to wisdom, you are my sister“; think of them as your brother or sister in faith and be married to the only ONE qualified to be a Spouse, that is Jesus Christ.
There is a nature of the soul. There is a nature of the spirit.
The spirit is given as an anointing to the soul desperate for a drink.
1 John 2:20,27
Are you thirsty?
…Keep my words.
