Hosea 1:2(the message bible)

2 The first time God spoke to Hosea he said:

   “Find a whore and marry her.
   Make this whore the mother of your children.
And here’s why: This whole country
   has become a whorehouse, unfaithful to me, God.”

Hosea was a minor prophet. God told him to find a whore, marry her, and love her (study the book completely).  He obeyed. There is a message in this book that I had never heard. I couldn’t understand why God would say something like this to his own child. Yet, I heard the break down of this through Bishop TD Jakes and almost fell to my knees about my own marriage and being a woman of God.

I want you to hear what Bishop Jakes has to share for the body of Christ. Why is this so important for your marriage? You have to know WHO God is in your life in order for you to LOVE your spouse completely. This is about the vows; in sickness and health, for richer and for poorer, etc..you know how it goes. This about choosing to LOVE regardless of who the person is NOT.

the lock on the door is about loving even though the physical person is missign an aspect that we want; loving even though they fail where God cannot; loving when we finally realize that we have to stand and protect our spouses like God protects us.

Yes, you can love a whore, why? God said so, so eloquently in HIS word. You can marry one too; your walk and your loving helps the whore/man/woman see the God in YOU!
