"HOUSE OF WHOREDOMS"
"Then said they unto Him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?"
"Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him Whom He hath sent." (Jn.6:28,29)
The work of God is to believe on Him Whom God hath sent. To "believe" means to adhere to, rely upon, to trust and to give oneself (one's self) up to (Ampl.Bible) and in the Strong's Exhaustive Concordance, the root word for believe includes by definition, to obey and to yield.
The work of God therefore, is that WE: adhere to, trust in, rely upon, give ourselves up to; to obey, and yield to Him (Whom the Father has sent) our LORD, Jesus Christ.
Whoredom, in the Webster's New World Dictionary, is defined as: 1. "prostitution or fornication." 2. "the fact of being false to God; idolatry: so used in the Bible."
According to the Strong's Exhaustive Concordance, whoredoms is from the word zanah (Hebrew): "a primary root [highly fed and therefore wanton]; to commit adultery, (usually of the female, and less often of fornication) figuratively: to commit idolatry (the Jewish people being regarded as the spouse of Jehovah): -(cause to) commit fornication, Xcontinually, Xgreat, (be an, play the) harlot, (cause to be, play the) whore, (commit, fall to) whoredom, (cause to) go a-whoring, whorish."
The Greek words: porneuo, porne, and pornos are translated in the (KJV) Bible as fornication.
porneuo: from porne; to act the harlot, i.e. (literally) indulge in unlawful lust (of either sex), or (figuratively) practise idolatry: -commit (fornication).
porne: feminine of pornos; a strumpet; figuratively an idolater: -harlot, whore.
pornos: to sell (as in the sense of prostitution) -fornicator, whoremonger.
The Webster's New World Dictionary defines idolatry as: 1."worship of idols" 2. "excessive devotion to or reverence for some person or thing."
"Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone." (James2:17)
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of ourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Eph.2:8,9)
Abraham believed God and it was imputed unto him for righteousness. (James4:23b)
This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him Whom He hath sent." (Jn.6:29)
We are saved by grace (it is a gift of God) not by works (toil, deeds) but, by doing the work of God, which is to believe on Him Whom God has sent. To adhere to, trust in, rely upon, give oneself up to, to obey, to yield ourselves to Him.
We are to believe on Jesus, to adhere to, trust in, to rely upon, to give ourselves up to, to obey, and to yield ourselves to Him.
Jesus is the word of God made flesh, Jesus IS the Word, we are to adhere to, trust in, rely upon, give ourselves up to, obey and yield ourselves to the Word of God made flesh. This is the work of God that we are to do.
James said, faith without works is dead, not meaning toil or good deeds but, faith that produces the fruit of righteousness. Abraham believed God and it was imputed unto him as righteousness. Why?
Because Abraham had believing faith, fruitful faith. Abraham's faith was with "works" -because He believed God, the fruit of his faith was obedience. He acted upon his faith, by obedience to God's word and it was imputed to him for righteousness.
Idolatry is self-will, fornication and/or adultery is unfaithfulness to God. Through self-will, God's people (then and now) are adulterous, fornicators.
By not separating ourselves from sin and from the world around us, through compromise, by having fellowship with the world, through surfeiting and drunkenness, we have made ourselves, enemies of God. (James4:4)
Jesus is to reign in our hearts, as Lord. "But his citizens hated him and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to rule over us." (When he returned, having received the kingdom-) "But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me." (Luke19:14,27)
The church has prostituted (sold) herself; she seduces the servants of God to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to idols. While merchandising herself and the gifts of God, she indulges in every kind of sorcery (including, using the word of God to manipulate others, exerting HER will over God's people), she practices witchcraft (rebelliousness).
She is disobedient, hypocritical, self-serving, idolatrous, false to God; she has been playing the harlot, acting whorishly, serving another god; the god of self.
"When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations." (Deut.18:9-14) If she does not separate herself FROM the world, she will be judged WITH the world.
"And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold I will cast her into a bed (of suffering), and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. (Rev.2:21:22)
"...and Bethel [the house of God] shall become Bethaven [house of vanity, emptiness, falsity and futility] and come to nothing." (Amos5:5b Ampl.Bible))
The church, like Jerusalem, who did not know the day of her visitation, shall be surrounded on every side by her enemies (New Age Movement), her walls shall be torn down, she will be destroyed, there will not be left one stone upon another.
