Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called? (James 2:7)
The camel’s nose is a metaphor for a situation where the permitting of a small, seemingly
innocuous act will open the door for larger, clearly undesirable actions.
THIS IS A MUST READ FOR EVERY HUMAN BEING THAT WISHES TO STAND IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD!
Why would you support the 7th Commandment of God? I asked Carol.
Covenant is when you are in agreement with a person or God to relate to each other in such a way that you would never want to hurt the other entity. And it is for protection. And you will come to my aid and I will come to yours that is the worldly concept. I’ll come to your aid, you will come to mine. In the spiritual realm we connect with God and we say everything you tell us to do, we will do. And God says, “I accept you and I will be in covenant with you and protect you.”
Because it has to do with our covenant with God, the marriage is the closest thing that comes to what we have with God Almighty. So when the covenant is broken by adultery, it is also equated in scripture with the idea of God being our Bridegroom and we breaking covenant with Him. Idolatry and adultery are similar in that breaking covenant with God is adultery. It is the same principal as breaking our covenant with God by worshiping idols. In Isaiah God calls us His Bride, who has
broken covenant with God, like a marriage. When two people agree in marriage to forsake all others, they become one in agreement with God to forsake all others, and this is the spiritual marriage of two believers in God. Marriage is what God does, when He tells us, we are to have that kind of relationship with Him, forsaking all others.
I support marriage. I am against adultery because we are breaking our promise to God. If we break covenant with God on this earth, we are breaking covenant in the spiritual realm. We are told to not commit adultery, because it goes back to the original covenant made with man. Back to the Garden of Eden, when God created man He breathed into Adam, His breath of life. Adam became a created being in the image of God. That was Gods covenant with Adam.
Then the next covenant is when God takes part of Adam to make Eve, together they are one. So now we have an extension of the first covenant God made with Adam now includes Eve. In a perfect world, God keeps everyone in the terms of His covenant. When Eve committed adultery to God, by believing Satan, she no longer had Gods protection. When Adam committed adultery to God, by following Eve’s lead, he no longer had God’s protection.
When male or female commit adultery against God. That female or male is walking away from the protection of God. . . .and His covenant to protect, defend, care and feed them.
If human beings choose to commit adultery they are doing something far more reaching than just
their family. They are breaking covenant with God. That is why we need to get back to the idea: Our Covenant with God is connected by our marriage, because in the Garden of Eden God made the marriage. He was part of His Covenant with Adam and Eve to protect them. This was not just a marriage between two people, is was God, Man and Woman.
Unknowingly or unwittingly, without thought, without caring, without connecting all the dots, man commits adultery and he or she is actually breaking covenant with God. How can we put that in human terms. We can’t put it in human terms, because every marriage Blessed by God is a promise to not forsake God and our relationship as becoming one flesh with each other and Him.
“Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?” (James 2:7) Therefore, when we commit adultery against our spouse, we are committing adultery against God. So in our broken relationship with our spouse, our sin is against God. When we say, “Do not they blaspheme that worthy name. . . .the names of God are many. He is Our Provider, El Shaddi, Our Healer is Jehovah Ropha, Our Comforter, The Holy Spirit is Haruach Codesh, God with us is Immanuel. We step out from under the Huppa, or the covering of God’s protection.
When Sari broke covenant with God and offered her handmaiden to Abram, Abram committed
spiritual adultery against God’s plan, and adultery against his wife. The whole covenant for Sari to be the mother of Abrams seed was broken. So we see the principal in this story of cause and effect. Adultery, breaking covenant with God and man, was sin and created a need for a blood sacrifice. “Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin.” It was sin, against God, to disobey God’s plan for Abram. However God sent a lamb for the blood sacrifice of Isaac Abrams son, that foreshadowed the coming of Jesus, until He appeared and did the blood sacrifice, once and for all.
This does not give us permission to break the covenant, or change the covenant made between God and man that was restated at Mount Sinai. “He who thinks to change the times and laws of God and denies His Prophets” is rebelling and vexing the Holy Spirit of God. (Isaiah 63:10). This is why I am against adultery. I see the seventh Commandment of God, complementing, completing, and revealing the picture of God’s character and relationship with humankind.
In allowing His Son, to purchase our freedom of choice and die, Jesus becomes our Redeemer.
The Mystery of God, is complete. The warning today is: “Do not commit adultery.” Do not break covenant with God and man. Or you will lose your Provider, Healer, Comforter, Holy Spirit, and God with us. Your choice between God and not god, is determined if will you accept the covenant with God, made on Mount Sinai and Calvary.
You have made it clear around the circle, from the Garden of Eden, to the Garden of Gethsemane. Do you wish to restore the covenant relationship, by not committing adultery against God? Do you really want to commit adultery, walk away from His protection, His healing, Divine Intervention, Angels, Prophets, and completeness of God and all Heaven offers?
When we say, “I don’t have faith” in some respects that is true…because when we say or
confess, with our mouth, “I don’t believe God can do it.” We are doubting God’s power to heal, God’s power to cleanse us from the sins we confess, God’s desire to be our provider, God’s power to be our protector, God’s power to be our defender, and the blood sacrifice of Jesus means nothing to us! We have rebelled and blasphemed the name of God, Jesus and vexed His Holy Spirit.
The sin of doubt came to the Children of Israel, as a curse at Kadesh Barnea. Standing at the River Jordan, the Children of Israel were ready to cross over to the other side. They saw a giant cluster of grapes, that took two men to carry them. They heard the stories of the milk and honey. They were ready to cross over until ten spies came out of the Promised Land and said “And there are Giants in the Land!”
These fearful spies said, “We can’t cross over without swords, arms and weapons.” They doubted . . .
Gods ability to lead them out of the desert! They had been protected from heat, cold, scorpions, snakes and venomous spiders. God had preserved them by making a nutritious grain, to boil, or bake into bread. They had no disease until they sinned against God, committed adultery against God and then came the plagues of snakes and sickness. Their clothes and shoes did not wear out. They associated the desert as a safe place, as long as they obeyed God.
They forget God and His angels were the holy ones protecting millions in the desert, providing water for millions of people and animals, without guns, swords or ammo. God vindicated His ability to do a miracle of vast importance! How can you feed a million in a desert, making grain, they were not to gather on the seventh day they were to rest and be Thankful to God for providing water to millions of people and their animals!
Fast forward today, Nations are angry, Eboli, ISIS, the world going to heck and hell in a hand
basket, drought, famine, locust, floods, volcanoes, plagues, microbes, earthquakes and fear of terrorists. What is there about God you don’t understand? Let me remind you of Caleb and Joshua. Caleb said, “We can do it! Let’s cross over its better on the other side.” And, the punishment for the doubters was to wander around in circles for the next forty years. Those who doubted did not pass over to the other side. Not one of that generation would go into the Promised Land except Caleb and Joshua.
“Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?” (James 2:7) In Greek blasphemeo, is to vilify; specifically to speak impiously: – (speak) blaspheme (-er, -mously, -my), defame, rail on, revile, speak evil. And that is what you do to Jesus, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit, when you want to commit adultery against God. The Holy Spirit allows us to take direct revelation from God, direct counsel from God, from Gods Throne in heaven. And when we vilify, blaspheme, speak badly about the Holy Spirit and don’t accept his role, as our counselor, guide and teacher, we cut ourselves off from God. We commit adultery and idolatry. That is saying our wisdom, our counsel is better than God. We know best. And we find ourselves like Satan. “For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” (Isaiah 14:13-14)
And this one sin of denying the Holy Spirit, denying His counsel, prevents us from crowning Jesus
as our King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Adultery and blaspheme are a sin God cannot forgive. That is, after all, why we are here in this great controversy between good and evil. Who is your King?
“Awesome” Carol said, and “Thank You Lord for giving us that revelation of why we don’t want to commit adultery.”
