THE WAGES OF A DOG
Men have discovered that it is much easier to adulterate the truth, than to refine themselves. Hence we see products of simmered gospel whose roots are from a compromised religion system, scattered every where playing harlotry in our churches.
As they were about to enter the promise land, God warned the Israelites via Moses thus; ‘You shall not bring the hire of a harlot or the wages of a dog into the house of the LORD your God for any votive offering, for both of these are an abomination to the LORD your God.’ – Deuteronomy 23:18
Temple prostitutes are not out of business, they have only metamorphosed and gained access to our heterogeneous permeable church system. If this sound like gibberish to you, the simplest form of it is this; payment received from the devil, is made an offering to God.
How do you see a lady that sleeps with her boss to get a promotion but shows up on Sunday to bless a holy God for the promotion? Or how would you rate the testimony of a student that cheats in his examination, but is grateful to God for the success of it all? How about pastors that pray for drug traffickers?
If God should interrupt and expose the prostitution behind our testimonies on Sunday, many people will faint of shock from our abominations!
In many parts of the world, we have seen politicians engage in dirty dealings and ritual killings, only to show up in churches donating to God’s work. In this fast moving world, Hired Assassins now pay their tithes religiously too. The harlots and the dogs are clouding the church. There is a romance between the sons of God and the daughters of men (Genesis 6:2). Fraudsters are now becoming deacons in a harlot church system.
Jesus gave the church a stern warning in Matthew 7:6 ‘Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.’
Most scandals that rend a church are caused by dogs in such a church. Since the church is in a haste; all what a dog needs to do is to attend a two weeks course and he becomes a leader, holding a position of authority. Don’t give holy things to dogs. By Paul’s definition, they are the ones that believe in circumcision made by hands (Philippians 3:2). It is interesting to see the dogs coming to lick Lazarus’s sores, despite the availability of crumbs (Luke 16:21). They were not interested in the crumbs of bread (Word of God, Healing & God’s provision), but are busy puffed up, giving you (Lazarus) a false comfort and empty promises.
When next you are going to the altar, ask yourself whether you are presenting the hire of a harlot, the wages of a dog or a whole burnt offering accepted in the beloved (Ephesians 6:1). No sane man eats good food in a dirty plate. Your lifestyle is an imposing aroma on your offerings.
‘The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?’ – Proverb 21:27
The gospel truth is this; if your life is not acceptable to God, it is very likely that your offerings would not be acceptable to Him.
May you find joy as you give your life first before your offerings.
