THE MANY WIVES
OF THE HOLY MEN OF GOD (THE POLYGAMISTS)
EVERY JEW AND EVERY ARAB THAT HAS EVER LIVED,
INCLUDING THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF,
COMES FROM POLYGAMIST PARENTS:
ABRAHAM, ISHMAEL, ISAAC, JACOB,
AND THE TWELVE TRIBES OF ISRAEL
by Tony Alamo
Anyone who would believe that polygamy, according to God’s Holy Scripture, is dead, would believe that God is dead, and that the Bible is meaningless.
I, Tony, just as Paul and the twelve disciples of Jesus, was not called into the ministry by man, but was divinely called, supernaturally and directly called by God Himself. Jesus stated to His disciples, You are my witnesses (eyewitnesses) (Luke 24:48). Later, the disciples, in the book of Acts, stated that they too were eyewitnesses. They had seen Jesus, and were not ashamed to tell of His miracles, His death, and His resurrection. They were not ashamed to preach the full truth of God’s Word, the rewards for believing, and the eternal damnation for disbelieving.
To be qualified for apostleship, one had to be directly called from God and to have seen Him. Paul stated that he had seen Jesus and was personally witnessed to by Jesus Himself on the road to Damascus. Jesus said to Paul, “For I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee” (Acts 26:16). Jesus appeared before me also for the same purpose, and I am proud of it.
Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus. For this, Judas is confined forever in Hell’s burning pit. Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias, these two were other eyewitnesses directly called by Jesus, and were qualified to draw lots to see who it would be to fill the office of an eyewitness and be an apostle of Jesus Christ, the same office of apostleship that wicked Judas despised and abused, to his own everlasting hurt.
The Gospel of John, chapter 1, verses 1, 5 and 14, and Revelation, chapter 19, verse 13, both state clearly that Jesus is the Word of God. God magnifies His Word above His name (Psalm 138:2). Jesus is the truth (John 14:6). And Jesus said that He didn’t come to destroy the law (which includes polygamy, and in the case of God’s Levirate Law, enforces polygamy), but to enforce the law (the Torah) (Matthew 5:17). The real Jesus of the real Bible said these words and means them: “Till Heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5:18). “For the law [that defines and condemns sin] was given by Moses, but grace [the forgiveness of sin, and power]and truth [go and sin no more] came by Jesus Christ” (John 1:17).
God is not dead. I talk to Him all the time. God answers me, He delivers me and shows me great and mighty things. God’s Word says, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” (Jeremiah 33:3). How could one serve a God if His Words were uncertain, unstable, undependable, vague, and ambiguous?
OUR LEGAL GUIDE TO LIFE
Moses was one of God’s big shots. Moses was used by God to write the first five books of the Old Testament. God dictated His unchangeable, everlasting, moral laws, their statutes, and their precepts to Moses. It was Moses whom God called from a burning bush in Horeb to go back to Egypt for the purpose of delivering the plain message to Pharaoh, “Let my son [Israel] go, that he may serve me” (Exodus 4:23). And it was Moses whom God surely used to deliver Israel from the iron furnace of bondage and servitude that held the Jews in Egypt.
Moses was the husband of at least three wives. Zipporah was Moses’ first wife (Exodus 2:21), the Ethiopian woman was his second wife (Numbers 12:1), and Holy Scripture mentions Hobab, the Kenite as the father of Moses’ third wife (Judges 4:11). These are three of the wives of Moses recorded in Scripture. There may have been many others that were not recorded. Moses was 80 years old when God called him to deliver Israel. It was after this age that God gave him more wives, more helpmates. When God took him away at age 120, “his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated” (Deuteronomy 34:7).
Abraham, the father of faith, the first Jew, was married to Sarah, Hagar, and Keturah; and Abraham also had many concubines who bore him many sons (Genesis 11:29, 16:3, 25:1, I Chronicles 1:32). “Unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son…” (Genesis 25:6). God greatly blessed Abraham and his seed. It was through Abraham and Sarah that the miracle child of promise, Isaac, miraculously was born when Sarah was well past the age of childbearing (90 years old), and Abraham’s body was as good as dead (100 years old) (Hebrews 11:11-12). It was through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and their descendants that Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world, came and blessed the entire world by giving us, through Him, the opportunity to receive forgiveness of sins and eternal life. So through Abraham, THE POLYGAMIST, came the Messiah of the world who blesses every nation.
JACOB THE PRINCE
God also blessed Jacob (THE POLYGAMIST) who begat the fathers of the twelve tribes of Israel with two wives, Leah and Rachel, and two concubines, Bilhah and Zilpah (Genesis 29:23-30, 30:4-9, 32:22). Jacob needed deliverance from trouble, and wrestled all night with the Lord for His blessing of protection against his angry brother Esau. Jacob prevailed in his wrestling match with God (Genesis 32:23-30). God could not win this struggle with Jacob because Jacob stood upon the Word of God. Not only Jacob, but anyone who stands on the Word of God and will not be denied, cannot lose, even against God. God cannot prevail against anyone, including you, if you esteem God’s Word as being the highest authority; you can rest assured of that. Therefore, God told Jacob (THE POLYGAMIST), “Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed” (Genesis 32:28).
Moses, Abraham, and Jacob were not sinners. If they were, God could not, and would not, have blessed them. God’s Word never calls polygamy sin. According to God’s Word, adultery, fornication, and divorcing one’s spouse (save for the cause of adultery) to marry another, are sins worthy of everlasting damnation (Proverbs 6:32, Malachi 3:5, Matthew 5:31-32, Mark 7:21-23, 10:11-12, I Corinthians 6:18, Galatians 5:19-21, Hebrews 13:4, Jude 7, Revelation 21:8).
DAVID AND BATHSHEBA
The apple of God’s eye, the Psalmist David, most blessed of God, also through whom the Saviour of the world came, had many wives (II Samuel 3:2-5, 5:13). God selectively grants multiple wives to those who have a true, mighty call from God, who have accepted the call from God fully, and who are moved, not by the compulsions of the flesh, but are moved by the Holy Spirit, as the other holy men of God were, whom God provided multiple wives for.
Godly men like King David (THE POLYGAMIST) never seek wives. David never cruised the River Jordan, joined clubs, or sailboated in the Mediterranean around Tel Aviv or Haifa for them. God gave the rulership of Israel to David as a gift, then God gave multiple wives to the former little shepherd boy. David’s wives were gifts from God for David to shepherd to Heaven. God gave multiple godly wives as gifts to other faithful men of God, that these saints would keep their wives’ and children’s thoughts stayed always upon the Almighty.
After David was blessed in various ways from God, he sinned (committed adultery with Bathsheba, Uriah’s wife), then sent Uriah to his certain death on the front lines, that he might take Bathsheba as his wife, in hopes that no one would know of Bathsheba’s illicit pregnancy. Because of David’s horrible sin of adultery, and the wickedness toward Uriah, the prophet Nathan came to David with God and a special message. This message consisted of a reminder of the way God had once blessed King David (THE POLYGAMIST), and a message of plagues and curses that would follow the King to his death. God’s message was this: “I anointed you king over my people Israel and I delivered you out of the hands of Saul, AND I GAVE YOU YOUR MASTER’S DAUGHTERS AND YOUR MASTER’S WIVES INTO YOUR BOSOM, AND I ALSO GAVE YOU THE DAUGHTERS OF ISRAEL AND OF JUDAH; AND IF THEY WERE TOO FEW YOU SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME, AND I WOULD HAVE ADDED TO YOU TWICE THAT MANY” (II Samuel 12:7-8, original Aramaic Bible).
God, who is incapable of sin, incapable of causing anyone to sin, and incapable of tempting anyone to sin, positively gave these multitudes of wives to David the King (James 1:13). Before King David sinned, it was written, “David took him more concubines and wives out of Jerusalem, after he was come from Hebron: and there were yet sons and daughters born to David” (II Samuel 5:13). Remember, David did not seek any of these wives for himself, but God gave them to him while he (David) was busy seeking the Lord.
First Kings 15:5 states, “David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.”
God blessed mighty Gideon (THE POLYGAMIST), “And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him and said unto him, The Lord is with thee, thou mighty man of valour” (Judges 6:12). “And Gideon had threescore and ten sons of his body begotten: for he had many wives” (Judges 8:30). “As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate” (Psalm 127:4-5).
SAMUEL THE PROPHET AND JUDGE OF ISRAEL’S FATHER WAS A POLYGAMIST
Elkanah, a Levite, the father of the prophet Samuel, had two wives, Hannah and Peninnah, and Elkanah was not a rich man (I Samuel 1:1-2). Hannah prayed to God for a son and vowed to give him to God as a Nazarite. God gave her the son, and Hannah kept her vow to God by giving her little boy, Samuel, to God in service with Eli, the high priest. The Word of the Lord was issued to Samuel. He made known the doom of Eli (the high priest), and the members of Eli’s family (I Samuel 3:11-14, 18). Samuel was given many other revelations from God, and their exact fulfillment secured Samuel a reputation for trustworthiness that made Shiloh an oracle (I Samuel 3:1-21). Samuel also judged Israel and conducted the religious affairs of the nation (I Samuel 7:15-17).
700 WIVES AND 300 CONCUBINES
Holy Scripture states that King Solomon (THE POLYGAMIST), the wisest man in the world in all history, whom God used to write the book of Proverbs, the book of Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Solomon, “had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines” (I Kings 4:29-34, 10:23, 11:3).
Abraham, Jacob (Israel), Moses, Gideon, David, Solomon, Elkanah, and many other chosen, beloved patriarchs and servants of God (saints) had many wives. The book of Hebrews states that the world was not worthy of these greats (THE POLYGAMISTS). “And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again, and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (OF WHOM THE WORLD WAS NOT WORTHY)” (Hebrews 11:32-38). “Now all these things happened unto them [THE POLYGAMISTS] for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come” (I Corinthians 10:11). All the Word of the Lord must be received into the heart, nothing rejected in order to receive life.
THE LEVIRATE LAW
The law of God given to Moses, which Jesus said is eternal and would never go away (Matthew 5:17-18, Luke 16:17), never ever cited or mentioned a ban against polygamy to the great, humble men of God. This same law, given Moses as an eternal guideline of right and wrong to the world, sets forth provisions from God for polygamy, even provisions for the children in the cases where a man had two or more wives. “If a man have two wives, one beloved, and another hated, and they have born him children, both the beloved and the hated; and if the firstborn son be hers that was hated: Then it shall be, when he maketh his sons to inherit that which he hath, that he may not make the son of the beloved firstborn before the son of the hated, which is indeed the firstborn: But he shall acknowledge the son of the hated for the firstborn, by giving him a double portion of all that he hath: for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his” (Deuteronomy 21:15-17). The Word of God plainly makes it clear that all the children of such marriages are not illegitimate, but rather, are very legitimate.
God’s law of right and wrong actually commands a man to be a polygamist under the Levirate Law. If a man dies without a son, his brother, or near relative, must inherit the widow and raise up children for the deceased husband. Two well-known instances of the Levirate are found in the book of Ruth, and in the Gospel of Mark, chapter 12, proposed by the Sadducees to Jesus.
Although a man might wish to remain monogamous, yet God’s law of Levirate inheritance might easily convert him into a bigamist, if he were already married, by God’s law of right and wrong commanding him to marry his brother’s widow, if the brother had died without leaving a son. Among the Hebrews, this was a frequent cause of polygamy.
And what will you do, become a sinner by disobeying God and try to avoid the whole issue by calling Jesus a liar by your saying, as the false apostate churches do today that say the law is ended? The world will have to believe either Jesus or them. As for me, I’ll go with Jesus. “If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband’s brother [regardless whether he is married to another wife or many other wives] shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband’s brother unto her. And it shall be, that the firstborn which she beareth shall succeed in the name of his brother which is dead, that his name be not put out of Israel” (Deuteronomy 25:5-6).
A man is rebuked with great shame if he doesn’t keep this law. “And if the man like not to take his brother’s wife [whether he be married to another or not], then let his brother’s wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say, My husband’s brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband’s brother. Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto him: and if he stand to it, and say, I like not to take her [I like not to keep the commandments of the Lord]; Then shall his brother’s wife come unto him in the presence of the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot, and spit in his face, and shall answer and say, So shall it be done unto that man that will not build up his brother’s house. And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that hath his shoe loosed” (Deuteronomy 25:7-10). In other words, a man who doesn’t walk in the shoes of God’s commandments, being “shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace” of the Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 6:15). That is an ungodly man who will not perform polygamy. Spitting in one’s face in the Middle East is of the greatest disgrace. People who don’t keep the commandments of the Lord shall surely spend eternity in Hell (Ezekiel 18:4, I John 3:4, John 15:14, Matthew 4:4). “Sin is the transgression of the law” (I John 3:4). Today’s apostate churches with their false prophets, wolves in sheep’s clothing, ignore Jesus (the Truth) and use the Apostle Paul to say the law is no longer in effect, or force. But, what does the real Paul say in the real Bible? “Do we then make void the law [which includes polygamy] through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law” (Romans 3:31).
JESUS AND THE SADDUCEES
In the New Testament when the ungodly Sadducees came to catch Jesus in His words regarding the Levirate Law (a woman getting married to her deceased husband’s brother, whether the man be married or not), Jesus did not denounce or change the law of Levirate (polygamy), or say that it has now been done away with or altered at all in the New Testament. Jesus only addressed the issue of there being no one in Heaven that is married or given in marriage, but that we shall all be as the angels (Mark 12:19-25). If polygamy were illegal, or the law had been changed or today made void, Jesus certainly would have mentioned it at that point, but He never condemned godly polygamy. Polygamy is not meant for sinners because sinners’ hearts and intentions are not godly.Even the crafty Pharisees, who hypocritically ran the government of Israel and always fell far short of their attempts to outwit Jesus, never doubted the ordinances in the law regarding polygamy, or questioned Jesus about the subject, because history tells us that polygamy was unquestionably the lawful, accepted way of life. It would have been a waste of time to even mention it because of its universal acceptability.
God’s prophecies, again, have come to pass. The nations have united under Satan’s command and have outlawed God’s laws of right and wrong. The world has become lawless, dangerous to live in. All peace has been taken away from the earth (Revelation 6:4). This fulfillment of God’s prophecy shows us how dangerously close to the end of time we are. The Apostle Paul stated that the day of the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ shall not happen until that wicked man of perdition be revealed (II Thessalonians 2:3, KJV). In Greek, “And then the Lawless One [with his wicked polyester laws] will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume by the Spirit of His mouth; and He will bring to nothing by the brightness of His coming (II Thessalonians 2:8).
These United Nations and their apostate church have declared war against God and God’s people, and they think to have the power to change the law, to do away with what God says is right and wrong. This won’t work well for them on Judgment Day!! There will be a new Heaven and a new earth, but the moral laws of God remain always the same. The heavens that now are will pass away and the earth that now is shall pass away but the law, God’s law of right and wrong, never passes away (Matthew 24:35). Jesus said so. Jesus is the Word, the final Word, and He shall judge all things by God’s eternal law. God has put all judgment in His hand (John 12:48, II Timothy 4:1, Revelation 20:11-15).
The one world government and apostate church powered by Satan would declare war against God (Revelation 12:17). They will “think to change times and laws” (Daniel 7:25). “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).
God states that it’s not good to be single (Genesis 2:18), and He therefore created marriage. If God created marriage, then marriage is not considered lewd, filthy, dirty, lustful, of the flesh, or sinful. If plural marriages are not approved, then why did God provide for them and make it an unbreakable, everlasting law? However, true, godly men would never pick and choose whom they would be married to; they would wait on the Lord. Marriages are made in Heaven.
Jesus never condemned polygamy, but He condemned divorce, with the exception of adultery or fornication. The adultery and fornication that Jesus spoke of in Matthew 19:8 and 9 was spiritual adultery and fornication, i.e., if a husband or wife would betray the Lord. For physical adultery and fornication, God’s law requires the death penalty, as shown in Leviticus 20:10 and Deuteronomy 22:22-24, not merely divorce, as shown in Deuteronomy 24:1. It is very permissible to divorce a wife or a husband for physical or spiritual adultery; but remember polygamy is not spiritual or physical adultery.
The great evil was not polygamy, but so-called successive polygamy, which in reality is adultery, according to Jesus (Mark 10:11-12). It is very common today—divorce and remarriage, divorce and remarriage, putting the wife away and tearing the children’s lives to pieces between mom and dad. The Almighty God stated, “For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away [divorce]” (Malachi 2:16). The practice of divorce is itself evidence of the growth of monogamy, for divorce is much less common in a polygamous society. The prophets, by their use of the term “marriage” in describing the relationship of Israel with Yahweh, declare that following after other gods is adultery (Jeremiah 3:6-14, Ezekiel 23:35-39).
When Michal despised David, because of the law, he was not able to put her away—divorce her, because she did not commit adultery. He put her in ward and had nothing more to do with her as a wife, other than to feed, clothe, and house her. He was not obligated to give her “due benevolence,” because she was not due benevolence, and so with David, she was childless (II Samuel 6:20-23, I Corinthians 7:3). She despised David rejoicing that the ark of the covenant of God was brought back into the kingdom of Israel. This was David’s greatest victory, much greater than slaying Goliath and the multitudes of the Philistines.
One of the major problems with the world today is that there are ten women to every man. It is a sad state of affairs that today’s men do not become strong, holy men of God to where they can lead born-again women, and the children of these wives, into the kingdom of Heaven, because many women have become homeless, childless, and prostitutes to try to make a living for themselves. If everyone would seek and serve the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength, as the first commandment commands everyone to do, all these troubles would be solved. The commandment from the Lord is to be fruitful and multiply. I do not believe in man picking or choosing his own mate or mates, but I believe in the Divine. The world has no right to condemn any of God’s Word, including polygamy, which even Christ did not condemn in the case of the patriarchs, Old or New Testament, (THE POLYGAMISTS).
There was no ban on polygamy in the New Testament, and the oft-quoted text of Matthew 19:9 forbade divorce, not polygamy. A man who put away his wife without good reason (adultery) and married another was committing adultery against his first wife, but the offence could be avoided by retaining her. Early Christians were allowed several wives, along patriarchal lines, and the issue was never raised by the legalistic Paul.
Jesus said, “Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of Heaven” (Matthew 5:19). In other words, if you break one commandment, the transgression of all the commandments tumbles down eternally upon your immortal soul, and your soul spends eternity in Hell. “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by [receiving into the heart] EVERY word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). Why is it that man can live eternally only by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of the living God? Jesus answered this question. “The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63). “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (II Timothy 3:16). The Holy Scriptures proclaim polygamy to be righteous.
Polyandry (a woman being married to more than one husband) is adultery, and severely forbidden by God. Women committing the sin of adultery are condemned to Hell forever. Men who fornicate with another man’s wife are adulterers. This too is severely forbidden by God. The adulterer is condemned to Hell forever.
WHY MEN AND NOT WOMEN?
Why are godly men allowed to have two or more spouses and women allowed only one? The answer to this question dates back to God’s curse on men and women from the Garden of Eden, that the man shall rule over the woman, for the woman committing the transgression was deceived.
Satan introduced to Eve the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (Genesis 3:6). Satan tempted Eve’s pride by making her believe that she would be as God, simply by receiving intellect. She lusted after the sight of the beautiful, tasty fruit that grew on the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil. “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:5). And Eve reckoned Satan to be true rather than God.
Satan represented himself to be an angel to her, and she fell for it. Therefore, “because of the angels,” she is commanded “to have power on her head” (I Corinthians 11:10). “Because of the angels” meaning, she doesn’t know a good angel from a bad one, doesn’t know God from Satan, and therefore is commanded to have her spiritually-awakened husband to lead her, rule over her, guide her by the Scriptures; and she is commanded by the Almighty God to learn from her own godly husband, only (I Corinthians 14:34-35, Ephesians 5:22-24).
Adam was not deceived, but willingly took to eat of the fruit of the forbidden tree from his own wife. Eve admitted she was deceived, “The serpent beguiled me” (Genesis 3:13). Adam admitted he wasn’t deceived. “The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat” (Genesis 3:12). Adam’s satanic love for wife rather than God obliged him to eat when she said to, and therefore he was commanded to not listen to her or worship her anymore, but listen to God only, and to “rule over her” (Genesis 3:16).
The woman was man’s equal before the crime, the sin, the transgression, the fall. But, after the fall, God makes it extremely clear that the woman is not equal to the man anymore, but is under subjection to her one and only husband (Colossians 3:18, I Peter 3:1). She is to be totally dominated, ruled, through and by the godly man through the Word of God (positively no more equal rights, ladies). By God’s standards, the women of today are totally out of order and on their way to Hell unless they repent and get in the place of God’s holy instruction. Women are to become born again and receive their instructions to Heaven from the Bible, and if they are married, from their godly husband. Because of today’s lack of men willing to truly serve the Lord, God shall impose the duty of shepherding many wives to His holy men. But as always, Satan’s men will appear as angels of light, and by deception, destroy the souls of many women (II Corinthians 11:14). God’s Scriptures instruct that the woman is to read the Word of God for herself as well as listen to her own husband. Listen to her own husband is not meant for her not to listen to godly pastors, teachers and preachers as well, but it means for them not to socially fraternize with other men alone, as the spiritually unregenerated women do today. The woman’s desire, her longing, shall be toward him (her husband) (Genesis 3:16). Because of God’s curse on the woman from the days of Eden, her husband may be called by God to be a polygamist, if he be holy. Thus the woman’s desire would be for her husband to be exclusively her own. Thus the fulfillment of the curse (Genesis 3:16).
Isaiah prophesied of this through God’s Holy Spirit, “And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach” (Isaiah 4:1).
If women or men are unwilling to carry the cross of self denial commanded by Jesus, the blessing of Heaven will then be forfeited. Jesus commands all of us, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of Man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels” (Luke 9:23-26).
As the Lord and His bride (the true, spiritual church of God) is composed of many millions of redeemed souls, so also some godly men and their godly brides could be composed of two or more godly wives. Remember, this is the word of God, and, O man, and, O woman, O government, O sanctimonious churches, O Satan, does God’s law of polygamy offend you? “Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?” (Romans 9:20). And, “FOR WHO HATH KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM?” (I Corinthians 2:16). Jesus asked His disciples whether or not some of His words (the bread and drink of life, which includes polygamy) offended them, “When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?” Jesus asked His disciples, “Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life” (John 6:61, 67-68).
So Eve disobeyed God’s command and took, ate, and died, and was the cause for everyone else in this world to have to suffer and die. But, worse yet, God’s only begotten Son had to come, suffer, and die to give His creation a second chance to reunite themselves through the Lord’s righteousness to God. A man has always been forbidden to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, but our command is to eat only from the tree of life, the Word of God, and this tree, this Word is Jesus, the Lord and Master of the entire universe.
OTHER CURSES FOR THE WOMAN
Back at Eden, unto the woman, God said, “I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception.” (The monthly menstruation is the curse to remind women, monthly, that it was her that caused God’s beloved Son to come to this world to have to suffer, die, and shed His blood, and why she is to remember, monthly, that her darkened, confused mind is not qualified to guide her own life, or others. She must rely solely on the Word of God for guidance.) “In sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee” (Genesis 3:16).
The Apostle Paul stated, “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, IF they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety” (I Timothy 2:11-15).
Paul continues this teaching in the New Testament by saying, “The woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband” (Romans 7:2). “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body” (Ephesians 5:23).
All of God’s laws apply to the Christian, the one who wants to gain eternal life. We must keep every commandment, put on the mind of Christ, line up everything that is done in our lives in this present world, according to God’s instructions regarding holiness and righteousness (Philippians 2:5).
The law pertaining to multiple wives is pure, holy, scriptural, righteous, and of God. And to say that it is not is evil, devilish, unscriptural, unholy, and ungodly. People love to find whatever they want to find in Holy Scriptures, but the Apostle Peter plainly states in Second Peter, “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God [such as THE POLYGAMISTS] spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” (II Peter 1:20-21). The Bible is to be received and not interpreted.
But in receiving the Word of God, one has to remember that the Bible was written to the Middle Easterners by the Middle Easterners, specifically by the Jews. The customs, the practices, and true laws of God are virtually unknown to the western society, because they’ve never lived in the Middle East, and they don’t understand the meanings of hundreds of Jewish and Aramaic idioms and figures of speech written into the Bible, and because they do not study these, they can’t know the entire truth. Most of the people in the world believe what they want to believe about the Bible and the law of God. But only the truth of the Word of God can save the soul. Heresies, false interpretations, superstitions and philosophies are all worthless and must be totally junked. The Word of God is to replace these if your desire is to enter Heaven.
Now, it is very significant and a point often overlooked, that there is no record of a question about whether a strong Christian man might, in any circumstances, take a second wife. If there had been any doubt at all about whether a strong Christian could have several wives, we would certainly have some reference to a polygamist being lawful or unlawful in the Gospels or the Epistles. Negative doctrine against polygamy would certainly have been preserved (clearly and well documented) in the New Testament and shown to be unlawful in the early Christian communities, if the problem had ever arisen in their own moral life. But polygamy was never even mentioned once as being negative, illegal, unlawful, or changed, with the exception of the bishops and deacons in Greece and Rome by Paul (I Timothy 3:2-5, 8-12). It shows that the question did not arise among the Jewish or Gentile communities to whom the Gospel was addressed, because there was no question of its godly legality in God’s government.
Surely it is the Western cultural tradition, far more than the Bible, that has provided Christians with their basic notions about marriage. For it has been just too easy in the past for theologians and churchmen to read into the Bible what they wanted to find there, and what they’ve been told is there by the ignorant, the novice, the heretics (false prophets, false teachers). Considering the pre-scientific methods of biblical teaching used in earlier decades, it is reasonable to suppose, therefore, that the unscriptural, traditional, pseudo-Christian theology of marriage, that most of the world practices today, derives from those who teach the Bible falsely, rather than from what the Bible really says on the subject of the saintly polygamists.
To get to Heaven, we must be free from doubt and we must be filled with faith, assurance, confidence, and certainty. All faith can be attained by studying the holy, original writings of the Bible, which are the same as in the original King James Version.
Thus, by accumulating enough of the right and unabridged truth of the Bible texts, by relating them to each other, and by receiving them just as they are into the heart, unemotionally, one way or the other, by receiving this raw truth of the Word of God, we can plainly see that there’s no deviation in the New Testament from the Old regarding multiple wives as being acceptable and honorable for those holy men called of God to this office. It is the holy estate of matrimony, and the marriage bed is free from adultery. “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge” (Hebrews 13:4).
God is unhappy with those who find His law repugnant, evil, those who make that which is good evil, like the special and selective, ordained, holy marriage of multiple wives (Isaiah 5:20). In today’s sinful society, “living together until we find out whether we be sexually compatible one with the other” type of sinful relationships are unscriptural, unholy, and are forbidden and condemned by God.
It is of the most disgusting profanity and shame for a saint to allow himself in the sight of God, the holy angels, and this sinful world, to be cowardly in his duty to preach the fullness of the Word of God without shame, thus allowing himself to be run out of the war zone, off the field, where the conflict with the enemy is. Because of the persecutions, the flack, the front-line heat of the battle assails with its mockings, jeers, and barks of those who oppose the truth, those whom God himself calls “the dogs,” those devilish, caviling, rabble of the earth (Matthew 7:6). If the saint would preach all the Words of Life boldly without reservation, which includes God’s sanction of holy matrimony and some who receive multiple wives, as King David and other blessed saints of God, then would the devil and his entire army of imps be run off the field once and for all. “Resist the devil and he will flee from you” (James 4:7), “Preach the word” (II Timothy 4:2).
The Christian cannot allow any type of persecution, including death, to back him down from the faith that God’s Word is truth, which has been settled in Heaven many thousands of years ago. It is the same yesterday, and today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). And the entire earth shall be judged in Heaven on that sure, final, and fearful, great Day of Judgment, as to whether it has honored and kept God’s Word, or dishonored and not kept it because they were ashamed of the Word and not willing to endure hardness like a good soldier of Christ by preaching the whole of God’s Word (II Timothy 2:3). Jesus said, “Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words [which includes the law of polygamy] in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of Man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels” (Mark 8:38). Those words of Moses and the prophets, Jesus and the apostles, clearly teach that God has BLESSED the plural marriages of THE POLYGAMISTS, who were the fathers of the righteous world of believers.
In line with the law of God, polygamists among the early Christians were, of course, saved and baptized unconditionally. They were not condemned for keeping the law regarding godly marriages with multiple wives.
David and other godly men, who were given multiple wives by the Lord, constantly kept their wives and children speaking in their hearts and souls “in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in [their hearts] to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:19-20). God enlightens and opens the door for such heavenly-ordained marriages for a few godly men, for the purpose of bringing up the wives and the children in the songs, praises, and the fear and admonition of the Lord. Hear the Psalmist of Israel, through the Holy Spirit, in this song, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night” (Psalm 1:1-2).
It’s quite obvious from the Word of God that David and other holy men were not kinky, as the kinky, unsaved general public have mocked them to be, but rather continually spent their time in songs, psalms, and prayers, meditating in the law before the courts of God in Heaven, and before the throne of God constantly, nesting there like tiny birds, knowing that they were then, as they are today, totally dependent on God for deliverances. Knowing these facts, they pray day and night, night and day (Psalm 1:2, 84:3).
We men of God are commanded to support our own wives and children. We are not to sponge off secular government handouts or welfare programs, because this, according to God’s Word, would make us worse than the secular infidels that we would be sponging from (I Timothy 5:8). God’s Word is profoundly clear, for a godly man would never be given multiple wives to shepherd unless he had been thoroughly grounded in the Word of God and exercised thoroughly in keeping the Word of God.
There are those who have feelings that some of the Word of God is wrong or evil, but this is damnable heresy. We are forbidden by God to walk by our feelings or by worldly standards. We are commanded to walk only by faith in God’s Word and not by sight or feelings (II Corinthians 5:7, John 20:29). The life of faith and the life of feelings are as opposite as God and Satan. We are saved by believing in the Words of Christ, not our feelings (John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Acts 2:21).
Persecution comes when people preach and keep the Word of God (II Timothy 3:12). I’m quite sure that more persecution will come my way because of my opening these Scriptures regarding THE POLYGAMISTS.
Satan’s doctrine, the doctrine of Caesar and the beast’s one world government and church, wants everyone to disbelieve God’s Word. God’s Word says, “Be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28). Satan’s doctrine is abortion, birth control, killing, pulling the plug, homosexuality, lesbianism, masturbation, oral and anal sex, which is considered sodomy. All of these can never bear children, and cannot keep the command of God to “be fruitful and multiply.”
The laws regarding polygamy, written by the Holy Spirit through many polygamists, in God’s Holy Word, have never been altered, and never will be altered. Man is never to be so presumptuous as to add to or take away from any of the Word, which encompasses the law. For the law, the guide to live by, is the Old and New Testament (the entire Bible).
When John the Baptist reproached Herod, the tetrarch, it was for his sin of adultery, since Herod had married his brother’s wife while the latter was still living, and not for the non-sin of polygamy. Herod’s father also had nine wives. John the Baptist knew that Herod was a polygamist, but the Baptist never reproved Herod for it, because John knew the law, that polygamy is not sin. Herod was married to another man’s wife, his own brother’s. This is adultery.
Saint Paul the Apostle knew the Italians and Greeks to be idolators. Paul knew also that they were strictly monogamous (having only one wife), but that sinful adultery was common among them, and is to this very day. Paul’s attitude was, when in Rome and Greece, do as the Romans and Grecians do (as far as their monogamous rules of marriage were, but not adultery). Paul didn’t want the bishops and deacons of his churches to be stumbling blocks in the area. He wanted them to become all things to all men, that they might win some to the Lord. Paul said, “I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some” (I Corinthians 9:22).
When the Apostle Paul tells the bishops and deacons to have only one wife, this amplifies and makes it clear that other strong men of God, other than bishops and deacons in the church, are implicitly allowed to have more than one wife. “But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that… Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife” (I Corinthians 7:7, 27). “Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called” (I Corinthians 7:20). This Scripture tells us that those with multiple wives, who had become born again of the Spirit, were to remain in that state of marriage that they were in when saved, commanded by legalistic Paul. This does not mean to remain in a state of sin because as aforementioned, Jesus commanded, “Go and sin no more” (John 8:11) and polygamy is not sin.
Then Paul stated, “All things are [in the law] lawful for me [lawful for him to do, including having many wives],” but he stated, “but all things are not expedient [for him to do, because he was the Apostle of the Gentiles in Rome and Greece, and not in Israel, where multi-wives in holy marriage was commonplace and condoned]: all things [in the law, including polygamy] are lawful for me, but all things edify not” (I Corinthians 10:23). “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God” (II John 1:9).
Why would Satan fight the law of polygamy? Because it is the Word of God, and Satan hates every Word of God. There’s a good reason for every word, because God’s Word is eternal life, and Satan knows it. He doesn’t want you to know it, and he will go to any and all means to stop you from knowing it. In the animal kingdom, the strongest animal leads the pack, and has many wives. And sometimes in the spiritual realm, when ordained by God, the strongest men of God have many wives, and God wants all of their wives to get to Heaven so much that He actually came into our world to die, go to Hell, resurrect out of Hell from the dead, and ascend into Heaven for them. A weak, cowardly Christian cannot handle the job (of THE POLYGAMIST). This job of godly shepherding can be handled only by a real man, the spiritual man.
Satan’s one world government and church, with its worldly standards, condemn the polygamist, who is blessed by God, yet condone, support, and defend homosexuality, lesbianism, birth control, free sex, fornication, adultery, divorce, kidnapping, murderous abortion, robbery, the bearing of false witness (lying), which are all sin and condemned by God with the penalty of eternal Hell. The world agencies would rather have you divorce, where your wife could become a street prostitute, and your children thrown into orphanages, rather than for them to live happy, healthy, full, wholesome, Christian lives where they are blessed by God, not only with the good things of the world, but also the world to come (Heaven) by following the instruction of the total Word of God, as was the case with Moses, Abraham, Israel, Gideon, and the other saints.
But, “He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ [all the law], he hath both the Father and the Son” (II John:9). The Bible is not speaking of, or condoning, false religions or any ism’s or sinner-type polygamy such as orgies, or free sex, or filth, or degeneracy in any way—but lawful, godly husbands and wives. Any other multi-wife marriage than Christianity is not ordained by Heaven, is not of the Father, nor doctrines of Christ. Their motivations are all much different than those from the children of God.
Millions say, “I just cannot receive Christ”—Christ, who is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life” (John 14:6). Therefore, those Scriptures say, “If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him [anyone who would condemn a godly man who has received godly wives from God for shepherding, as God gave to King David and others] God speed: [We Christians are not allowed to invite them into our church; we are forbidden by God to invite them into our houses; and are forbidden to wish them God speed.] For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds” (II John 1:10-11). Evil deeds meaning his condemnation of the Word of God.
The law of polygamy is always revived when the Old and New Testament is preached and taught by anointed servants who fear and serve God rather than man. The Bible clearly identifies every sin. Polygamy is never mentioned once in the Old or New Testament as being sin. “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). But ordained Christian polygamy has been fiercely opposed by the fallen-away, former Christian and now apostate church, which has united itself with Rome.
Just as the advent of Christian polygamy can be dated, so can its downfall. By the end of the seventeenth century, the modern anti-Christ world was on the horizon. The Old and New Testament were no longer regarded as the holy, eternal, almighty God’s sole guide to life. And, more specifically, the solution to sexual strain was being sought in an unscriptural, high status for women, smaller families, and a less austere approach to sex without the virtue of being married. By the end of the eighteenth century, it had become difficult for some ministers to preach Old Testament, godly polygamy and the New Testament non-condemnation of it without incurring satanic persecution from the God-haters. Society’s entire negative argument against holy polygamy is developed only by unscriptural inferences by the unregenerated heathen. And their blasphemous, dangerous arguments hinge on a number of unscriptural assumptions based on feelings rather than evidence. The shallow theologians have not searched the Scriptures for evidence of the divinely-revealed conception of marriage, but have taken up a false doctrine of Greco-Roman superstitions: not biblical and not even clearly in the mainstream of Jewish cultural law.
The system of literary interpretation applied to biblical texts in the pre-scientific period allowed both Jew and Christian to find almost anything they wished to find. Without really realizing it, we have become accustomed to listening to the Bible in the light of a particular false interpretation.
If the apostate church today insists on only monogamy, this is the result of a grievous deviation traceable to pernicious Gnostic influences. For the Gnostics condemned the body as evil and were obsessed with unscriptural celibacy only. They gained the upper hand in Satan’s Roman church some two centuries after Christ and have left their stamp on its practices ever since. The Bible specifically tells of the doctrine of devils in the last days, where they would command to abstain from marriage (I Timothy 4:1-3). Those who teach such heresy are not teaching God’s Word, they’re teaching anti-God. These are devils. Polygamy became a “sin” from the false teachings of Rome. The attitude of the Catholic cult, from the Council of Trent on, has been remarkably consistent. Not only does the cult condemn scriptural, godly polygamy, they also maintain, despite the plain and simple, easy-to-understand Scriptures, that it was not permitted in the Old Testament, and condemned in the New. This is just another of this Roman cult’s many thousands of heresies.
The main benefactors from plurality will be women. Scripture denies that the practice gives rise to jealousy. That vice thrives most luxuriantly when ‘the other woman’ is loved in secret. Open, godly polygamy destroys the evil at the root. Godly polygamy is not degrading for women. What is really brutish and vicious is the prostitution, and also the frustration, that flows from the divorce of successive polygamy, which Jesus calls adultery, that is, unless the divorce was caused by adultery. According to many reports, true godly women will always prefer a tenth share of a first-rate, scriptural, godly, Christian man, and be assured of getting to Heaven, than the exclusive possession of a second or third-rate ungodly one and wind up in Hell.
For a woman to be contentious about these commands from God’s Word is worse than ever for her, because of what she has already done, and there is nothing more for her to look forward to but an eternity in the everlasting destruction of Hell. And what if women object? What if anyone objects to God’s law? They go to Hell. “Who will say unto him, What doest thou?” (Job 9:12). God doesn’t care if you like it or not. Polygamy is scripturally sound because it has always been directed by God. Those who would object would fall into the same category as all the wicked men and women documented in the Bible who opposed God’s words, such as Cain, Ahab, Jezebel, Judas, and the Pharisees that Jesus called devils, vipers and hypocrites. However, it must be said that even the wicked Pharisees, the Scribes, the Sadducees, the Sanhedrin, or the Essenes, none of those condemned polygamy because they knew the law. Today’s Middle Easterners, those to whom the Bible was originally given, will tell you there’s nothing unscriptural about select, ordained polygamy, only that certain rabbis don’t approve of it. Today’s rabbis that don’t approve of select, lawful polygamy are worse than the Pharisees, who never questioned the laws of polygamy, Old and New Testament.
“We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29). Christian, godly polygamy never took root in Rome. Rome has always tried to cut the roots of the Bible, and people throughout the world have received the many damnable heresies of the Roman Catholic coven.
Many saints have parted (backslidden away) from the Lord and have been content with their own ways, their own manna, temporal waters from their own cisterns, and they have become sick and tired of the enterprise of spiritual warfare with the multitude of satanic-filled enemies with their persecutions, which include their slanderous lies. Many millions have walked down the road with the Lord, but, for Heaven’s reward, Jesus insists to take all the Word into the soul and keep it, regardless of the cost. We Christians are instructed to prepare our hearts for sorrows and the hardships. It is here where the multitudes kissed Jesus farewell. And they certainly do leave Him, and they really do forsake Him, and God certainly blots their name out of the Lamb’s Book of Life, and eternally away from life and the beautiful kingdom of God (Revelation 20:15, 22:19).
They don’t like the idea of not going to Heaven, but they hate more to pay the price that the Word of God dictates. To follow the Lord to Heaven requires a union, our spirit united with God’s Spirit, united in total agreement with the Word. But the Bible says, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first [from the Word of God]” (II Thessalonians 2:3). This is one of the great signs of the soon coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. We have to make up our mind, be fully persuaded, fully learned in every instruction from God. All this is required for the high position of a son of God, “But as many as received him [the Word], to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (John 1:12).
Without total obedience, you cannot be anything other than a hypocrite. Without total obedience, it is impossible to be anything other than fearful. “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8). But the righteous are those who violently and courageously renounce any other doctrine other than the Word of God. These are they who take the city (the kingdom of Heaven) by force and violence (Matthew 11:12). The yellow-belly, this wicked and untoward generation, will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. The righteous will be holy in spite of today’s world doctrine and the doctrines of devils.
Jesus lived and died for us, and will live and die with us when we become His. Jesus has never lost a battle, and never will. “Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men” (Ephesians 4:8). Will you receive all the Word of God and not be condemned by God on the final, terrible day of His Judgment? Or will you condemn God’s Word and God’s holy people because they believe and keep the Word of God? If you do this evil, you will be sent, by God, forevermore to the burning pit of Hell. Will you receive honor from God by accepting His Word or dishonor from God by rejecting His Word? If you profess Christianity but fold up during trials and tribulations as the majority will, you have set up your own scales and balances, but for this you will be weighed on God’s scale and will be judged by God’s true weights and true balances. You’ve judged that God’s rewards are not good enough to deny thyself in this present world and to endure for the Lord. “And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62). To the unspeakable joy of His saints and the holy angels of God, we are surrounded both now and in memory with a huge cloud of brave Christian spirits, the former and the latter, all sons of the King of kings, and the Lord of lords. All these have taken the kingdom of Heaven as godly storm troopers, yea, and have taken it by force. See to it that you do likewise, else shall you never receive the unspeakable joys of eternity in Heaven, but shall surely be tormented forever in the Lake of Fire. Unregenerated souls and those disobedient to the Word of God are banished from entering the gates of Heaven. Receive Jesus, the Truth, now by saying this prayer:
My Lord and my God, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. 2 I believe that He died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. 3 I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit 4 and that He sits on the right hand of God at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart and I invite You into my heart, Lord Jesus. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that You shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 You will not turn me away, Lord Jesus, You will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because Your Word, the Bible says so. 8 Your Word says that You will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that You have heard me, and I know that You have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as You command and sin no more. 11
You've just completed the first step in a series of five steps which are necessary to receive salvation. Your second step is to deny yourself and take up your cross daily and follow Jesus for the purpose of mortifying your flesh, that is, for putting to death your own will, your soulful self, and the world with all of its lusts. All these must be baptized into the death of Christ.
Step three is your resurrection from the satanic life of Adam unto the sinless life of Christ. Step four is your ascension into a position of authority to reign for God with Christ on earth, and the fifth step is to reign for God in Christ on earth to the end for the purpose of bringing about the kingdom of Heaven on earth. You must learn the Word of God, submit yourselves one to another, and do what the Word says so that the church and the world may see evidence of your submission to God’s Word, His order, and His authority in and by you. Praise the Lord. May God bless and reward you abundantly. Yours in the wonderful name of Jesus,
Praise the Lord. May God reward you abundantly.
Yours in the wonderful name of Jesus,
