«Then I said concerning her who had grown old in adulteries, ‘Will they commit harlotry with her now, and she with them?’ » (Ezekiel 23:43, NKJV).
There are questions that we cannot sweeten or hide regardless of how difficult it is for us to talk about them or how many taboos are associated with them. There are a lot of comments about this in the Bible. it is also forgiven if there is repentance, confession, change and decision.
Our language uses several other more vulgar words to refer to this, and we are no strangers to them,
What is dangerous is not recognizing that at the present time, there are very many ways that that sin is ours too, even if it does not happen like in ancient times. And that question, symbolic as well as real, is also addressed to us.
In such a sensual world where everything speaks to immorality, it is very difficult to remain pure if we do not have a close relationship with God in the first place.
Music, pictures, food: everything continually leads us to distort things and confuse the parameters of happiness involved within that area that was originally so beautiful and perfect, and today is so reviled and perverted.
We confuse closeness with intimacy, pleasure with well-being, recognition with identity, sex with love. God wants to give us the eight and more—everything within His plan.
The most dangerous thing is that, in the midst of everything, we end up by confusing the nature of our God, and that is the worst mistake, the worst evil, and the worst punishment itself.
We learn to repeat by heart the » No’s, without really understanding the «Yes’s» about how He made us and what is best for our lives in all aspects.
We learn what not do without first learning what to be. Thus, it is more difficult to obey because we do it out of fear and not out of love. This makes it harder to believe, because we do it by tradition and not by faith.
I do not know if you are single, engaged, or married. The enemy tempts us in every space. I invite you today to decide to know the God of love who is willing to give forgiveness, as He gave to many of those real women who repented and as He can give us today. May you give Him that area of your life, your identity and intimacy, and propose to know Him in earnest.
We can also pray that the millions of women, men, and children involved in some way in prostitution will be reached. A lot will start with us.
