No deal

In that day seven women will take hold of one man and say, “We will eat our own food and provide our own clothes; only let us be called by your name. Take away our disgrace!” Isaiah 4:1

The lost, lukewarm and disobedient in the Churches are eager to attach onto Jesus. But first they have a list of conditions. They decide to call the shots. They make their own deal with the Lord. They are willing to be self-supporting! They have no need for spiritual provision from Jesus. They will feed themselves their own manmade doctrines. They will feed off of themselves. They will certainly not consider feeding from the Bread of Life. They will wear their own covering and provide their own self-righteousness. They do not actually desire the righteousness of Christ; that requires repentance, faith, and picking up the cross that leads to their death, actually following Him in obedience. They just want to be called “Christian”. They want to be part of the club. They want to be well-connected for business networking. They want to join up to be accepted by their social group of peers. They want to be “in”. They want the proverbial easy ticket out of hell. They want a Convenient Christianity. They want to be married to Him in name only, but not an actual true marriage relationship with Him, in submission to Him. They want to be provided with the social benefits and goodies. They want to be accepted and well thought of by others.

  1. For seven women will take hold of one man in that day, saying, “We will eat our own bread and wear own own clothes, only let us be called by your name; take away our reproach!”

  2. I was there! I thought I did a revolutionary thing when I left my lifelong attachment to the RC church and started attending a “protestant evangelical” church. And for five years I lived like (what I thought was) the “Christian” on Sundays and lived like hell from Monday to Saturday. I take full responsibility for my sin but the particular seeker-friendly-candy- coated- gospel preaching church was no help as I was gospel ignorant and gleefully marching toward the lake of fire. Then one Sunday, I visited another church where I actually heard what I have come to know and love as the true gospel and that was it! God arrested my heart, turned me around and I haven’t been the same since. Whew! I praise Him everyday for that!

  3. hello Paul, yes I was there too.

    First RCC, then Humanist Seeker Candy Coated, then “The Club”.

    Then the Lord made a deal with me: a proposal of marriage with Him.
    His food, His clothes, His name, His rule over me.

    Haven’t looked back.

    Yes praise Him!

  4. Amen and Christ Jesus be praised! Excellent writing with such concise and powerful revelation given unto you by The I AM. Awesome. Blessed are thou Loretta, for no human revealed this to you, but was given unto you directly by our Father in heaven.

    Continued blessings in Christ and Christ Jesus be praised for your dedication. Thank you Jesus!

  5. We will eat our own bread: eat false teachings, false doctrines, not the bread of Life, not the spiritual manna.

    and wear our own apparel: wear our own quick n easy”covering”, not the actual righteousness of Christ. They “prayed the prayer”! Or raised their hand (all eyes closed, heads bowed).

    Only want His name & no reproach: they don’t love Him

    False (Harlot) Church= marriage of convenience with Christ.

    This is now, not “future”.

    It is about us, about the Church, not about “someone else”.

    Do you love Him, do you want a real marriage with Him?
    Fed and clothed by Him?
    Do you love, honor and obey Him?

  6. Rev 19:7-9
    7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

    His wife has made herself ready (come out of her my people)….the clean, white fine linen is the righteousness of Christ Jesus, for His Bride is without spot, blemish, or wrinkle! His bride has made herself ready! His Bride (just like in the natural world) takes the name of her Husband, and the Bridgegroom. His Bride has His Name and His Name only! So, those must ask, who is your husband? Is your Husband (Name) Christ Jesus? Or is He your husband in name only, while you are truly married to methodist? catholic? baptist? pentecostal? lutheran? etc etc etc…. His (true) wife has made herself ready for Jesus knows who are His!

  7. Amen TJ! If a bride is married to the Pope, the priest, the pastor, The Church, the Denomination, the Group, the Theology, the Doctrinal Confession, the Bible teacher on the radio, then she is not married to Christ. A bride can only have one husband.

  8. Yes! Well put Sister. Matthew 22:1-14 “He sent His servants to tell the invited guests to come to the feast, but they did not want to come. So he sent other servants…..Come to the wedding feast! But the invited guests paid no attention and went about their business………”
    “11 The king went in to look at the guests and saw a man who was not wearing wedding clothes. Friend, how did you get in here without wedding clothes? the king asked him. But the man said nothing………then the king told the servants, tie him up hand and foot, and throw him outside in the dark…..
    and gnash his teeth.”
