THE HARLOT- REHAB
the king of Jericho sent unto Rahab, saying, Bring forth the men that
are come to thee, which are entered into thine house: for they be
come to search out all the country. And the woman took the two men,
and hid them…"
Bible says, God gave the land of Canaan to Isreal so Joshua sent two
messengers in to the land to spy the land. When they got in, the
information got to the king so he sent people to look for them. The
information was that the messengers of God were hiding in the house
of a harlot, Rehab.
you not wonder that of all the places in Jericho, God decided to hide
His messengers in the house of a harlot? Does it mean there were no
spiritual people/believers there?
the kingdom of God, many people whom people have written off/ condemn
will be there including repentant harlots.
allowed His messengers to hide in the house of a harlot of all
places. Does it mean God loves harlotry? No. He hates the sin but He
loves the sinner.
you deep in sin and written off by men? Are you an armed robber, a
prostitute, a liar, manipulator, a cheat, an adulterer, etc? Do you
sometimes lament and wonder if God still loves you and if He will
still forgive you?
may have written you off but God has not written you off. If only you
will genuinely repent and come to Him today, He can still use you.
God loves you so much and is yearning to have continual fellowship
with you. If you would only own up to Jesus today, there is
forgiveness at the cross. He can cleanse you and turn your life
knew rehab. She was a ‘nobody’ but today, you are reading about
her after thousands of years. Your life can still be better. You may
be a ‘nobody’ today but God wants to make you a ‘somebody’.
God wants want to take you from the bottom and plant your feet on the
rock. Jesus is that rock. He wants to turn the mess in your life to a
message for the world to see.
Lord Jesus, I ask for your mercy. I repent of my sins and accept
what you did at Calvary for me. Cleanse me from every form of
unrighteousness, come into my life and give my life a meaning in
Jesus name. from today, help me to live a righteous life and let your
life be seen in me in Jesus name, Amen.
for your family members and friends who have not genuinely given
their lives to Christ.
