In the words of Monty Python, “And now for something completely different…” And I mean different, but it requires some reading Wall Watchers, thanks to some masonry from another brick in the wall, “Bible Belt Blogger”.
A former A/G pastor in Virginia who now dubs himself as prophet and apostle. And typically, when someone is believing his own press, you know what that means – mountebank con artist and all-around theological windbag.
When you “meet” the guy who sounds like he was destined to be an astrologer, you will find a sermon that outlines a man who cared for his bed-ridden bride and smoothly transitions into how God has told him to marry a 20-year old virgin that was handpicked for his bidding… while his ailing wife is still breathing no less.
Um, what the…
For He says, “…I am the Lord. And he shall take a wife in her virginity” (verses 12 and 13). He talks about the high priest and He says if you’ve lost a wife, you take a wife. It has to be one that’s a virgin, it has to be one that’s out of your midst, out of your presence. He said the priest couldn’t do that. He said the priest however excuse me, were allowed to. They could marry other than a virgin. They could marry widows who had been married to priests (Ezekiel 44:22). Now what’s this all about? What are we saying? It’s talking about the sanctity, or the holiness of the office and what God preserves for that. As we share these things we’re really looking at the ministry going on.
So, lemme gander at this. You, Star, are the “high priest” who wants to get your swerve on through a mid-life crisis, hold a pity party and uh, “plant your seed”?! Somewhere, women around the globe are shivering and screaming “Ewwww!”
Yeah, look at this one:
Out of the clear, like a lighting bolt Thursday, a few days ago, God spoke to me and He pointed out in our midst one of the virgins among us that’s to become my wife.
How would you like to be one of the father’s in this cult (written in heavy detail by the Washington Post). There you are enjoying service and the pastor proselytizes that your daughter trying to live to pure and upright is about to become his conquest and concubine. Yeah, that’s when my days of tithing there would end with quickness.
Note the whole lightning bolt reference. There is another scripture that references a lightning bolt, which I find apropos right about now. Hrm… oh yeah:
How you are fallen from heaven, O’ Lucifer, son of the morning (Isaiah 14:12-16)
Where’s the lightning. Oh, that’s in Luke, when we find Ol’ Slewfoot getting the boot. That’s when there was a witness. God kicked some blessed assurance in front of his kid. Atta boy!
MEMO to the “fallen” Star: What’s good for that goose is most definitely good for your gander. Peace out, dude. There’s a warm spot waiting for you if you don’t chill and come to your senses.
