Good morning, Reader! I really dislike the word we are covering today. But it is so prevalent in our society. Just because we do not use that word anymore, it doesn’t mean that its definition no longer exists. In fact, it is most definitely alive in these end times. So let’s dig into the word and pick it apart so we can better understand what is involved with this in.
The Greek word for whoremonger is “pornos,” which is where we get the word pornography:
From πέρνημι pernēmi (to sell; akin to the base of G4097); a (male) prostitute (as venal), that is, (by analogy) a debauchee (libertine): – fornicator, whoremonger.
Just what is a whoremonger in today’s English? Its meaning involves every area of lust, sex and pornography. Although Noah Webster defines these as unlawful, most sexual sin is either legal or on its way to becoming legal in most places around the world! Looking at the direction the U.S. is taking as of late, it won’t belong before our beloved Country is totally depraved. The definition reveals:
Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary
- Given to the unlawful indulgence of lust; addicted to fornication or adultery; dissolute (lewd, debauched); lustful; libidinous (Having or exhibiting lustful desires; lascivious). Ezek 23.
- Proceeding from unlawful lust; as lewd actions.
- Wicked; vile; profligate (a wretch who has lost all regard to good principles,virtue or decency); licentious (unrestrained by law or morality; loose). Acts 27.
Although most are allowed in our world, they should not be so in our churches. What has always been a sin should remain a sin according to the Scriptures. God doesn’t change His mind. (Mal. 3:6-7) What God considers sin in the Old Testament is still sin today! His moral laws never change because God never changes. (Heb. 13:8) A “whoremonger” therefore, always refers to someone who cannot control his/her sexual appetite and lacks moral values.
What makes these sins worse is that they are not committed alone! It’s no wonder that the word “pornography” comes from this Greek word! God knew what He was saying when He directed man to pen the Scriptures. You may not personally partake in these sins but if you support and befriend those who do, your silence betrays your heart. Your silence betrays your relationship with God. You cannot love the Lord and yet support anything but marriage between a man and a woman. You cannot love the Lord and take your children to the library to hear a book read by a transvestite. You cannot love the Lord and support a restaurant that has “open mic night” with transvestites. Friend, God wants us to be different from the world. A good rule of thumb is:
Some things are obvious to Christians, but what about living together before marriage? What about having sex before marriage? What about having an affair while you’re married? All these are included in the definition of whoremonger! Prostitutes and pimps are also included. Looking at pornographic material is included as well. Watching TV shows and movies that promote these things make you guilty as well, Christian! I stand amazed at how many Christians admit to watching movies that promote sex before marriage and are not under conviction for watching such things! (2 Cor. 6:14-18)
The Corinthians were not the only worldly church. The Laodicean church is alive and well in these end times and it is evident in its members. We have Christians promoting such things without regard to the lack of “light” they are shedding on a God-forsaken world! They do not take a stand for what is good and moral but, for the sake of “inclusion,” they adopt the mantra “don’t judge others”! If you don’t speak out, who will? Only YOU have that ability within your circle of family and friends! (Rom. 10:14) You may not be a preacher by trade, but you have the responsibility to speak the Gospel to everyone within your reach! We all do! (Mark 16:15) After salvation, the Holy Spirit will work in the believer’s heart toward righteous living. Don’t be a deterrent to the unbelievers but be a LIGHT! (Matt. 5:14) Also be salt to the unbelievers so that they can thirst for God’s Word! (Matt. 5:13) Don’t be the salt that has lost its flavor.
Don’t give in to what was once called sin “back in the day,” but is now permissible in today’s morally corrupt society! Some countries have legalized prostitution but it doesn’t remove the fact that it is still sin! Any type of sexually immoral sin is part of whoremonger. The world has been conditioned by Satan to accept them – especially young people. They have not grown up in the church and have not learned what God’s Word has to say about these sins. Their minds are deceived by the god of this world and they have been taught to do what feels good to them. Friend, please, I beg you, changing boys to girls and girls to boys is considered whoremongering! It is madness and the devil is at the root of all of it! Shame on parents who allow these things in their homes!
Again, even if you haven’t personally committed these sins, you are guilty of them because of your silence. Take a stand for God and speak out! It will most certainly cost you but your eternal reward will be great! (Matt. 5:11-12)
There will come a time when it will be too late. You will spend eternity burning in Hell and the Lake of Fire. You will remember each opportunity you were given by God to be saved and you laughed it off and ignored it. I want to be sure that anyone who reads the posts on this blog can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are going to Heaven. Have you received Christ as your Saviour? If no, your sins are not covered by His sacrificial offering of Himself. You have not been redeemed by His blood. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.
