I am sure you now understand that everyone who practices polygamy in this Christian era is seen as an adulterer or adulteress according to the view of the Lord. This means if the judgment comes no polygamist would be spared because of HEB. 13:4. Herein lies why I chose the heading, ‘ADULTERERS AND ADULTERESSES, BEWARE’, so that those who are not aware of the implications of polygamy in this modern Christianity would be alarmed to enable them refrain from it.
As we are concluding this discussion I would like to re-emphasize that Christ made it clear that anyone who desires a new wife can only do so when he is able to prove beyond reasonable doubt that his wife has committed adultery by engaging in sexual immorality with another man (MATT. 19:9). As such no one can marry another wife in addition to his old or existing wife unlike the olden days where people could marry more than one at any time they preferred. This means in this Christian era any man that marries more than one is seen as an adulterer and any woman that is married as an additional wife also becomes an adulteress and shall both not have part in the kingdom of God. 1COR.6:9
Let me also make this point clear to you that it is because God wanted to re-establish the kind of marriage which was instituted in the Garden of Eden that, through his Holy Spirit He admonished us to REPENT of the Polygamy and practice monogamy in this Pure Christian era. Hence Paul’s exhortation to the congregation for one is to one marriage during the transitional period which was contained in 1COR. 7:12; 1TIM. 3:2,12 & TITUS 1:5,6. So if anyone challenges this nobility and does not want to accept Monogamy from our Lord Jesus Christ, it means the one is poised to perish and just want to argue in vain.
(3) “If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, (4) he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, (5) useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself.” 1TIM.6:3-5 (NKJV)
Again from the above explanations given, it is now undisputable that whatever the Holy Spirit led the apostles to write in connection with monogamy should strictly be adhered to; since they preached Christ and not their own messages.
(5) “For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. (6) For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” 2COR. 4:5,6
For this cause no one should condemn Paul’s instruction in 1COR. 7:1,2 which says we should all as modern Christians practice monogamy and not polygamy. In actual fact anyone who mistakenly condemns Paul’s statement will be construed as condemning the Holy Ghost and the one will not go unpunished.
(31) “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. (32) And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.” MATT. 12:31,32
My dear one in Christ let me take this opportunity to sound this note of warning to you that you must desist from Polygamy. This is because this kind of teachings concerning Polygamy has come at this end time to throw dust into the very eyes of people in order to sadden the hearts of the righteous men who want to remain steadfast to Christ by adhering to the voice of the Holy Spirit which teaches monogamy. At the same time this teachings of the devil is in to strengthen the hands of the wicked ones who still want to obey some of the old doctrines already nailed to the cross to their own damnation.
“Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:” EZEK. 13:22
In fact it is rather unfortunate that such quack preachers of Polygamy are now out in their numbers to strengthen the hands of those who are already indulged in such practices. This means they do not want the polygamists to repent of their sin which is tantamount to adultery punishable by hell fire. They have even forgotten that their actions will be condemned by God for supporting sin.
“I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.” JER. 23:14
“Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” ROM. 1:32
Please stop encouraging polygamy in order to escape God’s furry judgment. This is because our willful sin will never be spared. So having known the truth about the dangers ahead of polygamists, it is high time we started telling people to follow after the voice of Christ which teaches or encourages Monogamy. In that in the end no one will have himself or herself to blame as an adulterer or adulteress.
(26) “For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, (27) But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. (28) He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: (29) Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? (30)For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. (31) It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” HEB. 26-31
