In conclusion of our study, let’s go to the New
Testament to obtain one final witness from the apostle Paul who, being
privy to this deception, admonishes all Christians to stay faithful to
the promised husband. Urging us to maintain our virginity, which is
the spiritual chastity of our minds.
2 Corinthians 11:2-For I am jealous over ye with
godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may
present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
The word ‘chaste’ in Greek means,
"innocent or pure." (Strong’s #53)
The word ‘virgin’ in Greek means, "an
unmarried daughter." (Strong’s #3933)
Why is Paul emphasizing one husband and Christian
virginity? He knew that there are two bridegrooms who are lobbying for
the hand of the Christian bride, this duality that is written in the
scripture is what will make it tough for some Christians to tell the
True One from the false. (Jeremiah 33:11 - Revelation 18:23-24 -
Jeremiah 25:10). To be chaste means you are innocent of not
conceiving in your mind Satan’s mark of lies disguised as a wedding
proposal, at the sixth seal, the sixth vial and the
sixth trump (666). To stay unmarried means you have waited for the
wedding of the true bridegroom at the seventh seal, the
seventh vial and the seventh trump (777).
2 Corinthians 11:3-But I fear, lest by any means,
as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds
should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
The word ‘beguiled’ in the Greek means,
"to seduce wholly." (Strong’s #1818)
"The word ‘seduce’ defined by Webster’s
Dictionary means, "to persuade to engage in unlawful sexual
intercourse especially for the first time."
Eve’s folly in Eden was that she lost her virginity
to Satan through natural means of sexual intercourse. Paul’s concern
for Christians is that we do not make the same mistake as Eve did and
lose our virginity spiritually to this same seducer. It’s obvious that
the object of the serpent’s desire is the Christian bride. Until you
start to practice abstinence in your mind and say no to lies and lying
preachers then you stand in danger of deception. I thank you for
