Salmon was the father of Boaz (whose mother was Rahab). Boaz was the father of Obed (whose mother was Ruth). Obed was the father of Jesse.

I Am Going To Discuss The Consequences of Adultery & Prostitution
We know the story of Hosea & Gomer. A prostitute and a unfaithful woman who left her husband and children for adultery (Hosea 1 – 3). When God finally brought her back and redeemed her she was in bondage , in debt, and destroyed. But By His Grace , her husband (Hosea ) bought her back.
We live in a time with disgusting music running around from female rappers and r&b singers that make it seem like it’s ok to be a whore. But they’re not telling you about the sexual transmitted diseases you can catch, the dosmetic violence you endure , or the homelessness that you encounter from prostitution or even the insanity that comes after heartache . This disgusting music envokes a psychological fantasy…. that ultimately leaves you with nothing…
He Who Is Without Sin Throw The First Stone
But the truth is , God has mercy on who HE pleases and compassion on who HE chooses.
Is that grounds for complaining that God is unfair? Not so fast, please. God told Moses, “ I’m in charge of mercy. I’m in charge of compassion.” Compassion doesn’t originate in our bleeding hearts or moral sweat, but in God’s mercy. The same point was made when God said to Pharaoh, “I picked you as a bit player in this drama of my salvation power.” All we’re saying is that God has the first word, initiating the action in which we play our part for good or ill. Are you going to object, “So how can God blame us for anything since he’s in charge of everything? If the big decisions are already made, what say do we have in it?” Who in the world do you think you are to second-guess God? Do you for one moment suppose any of us knows enough to call God into question? Clay doesn’t talk back to the fingers that mold it, saying, “Why did you shape me like this?” Isn’t it obvious that a potter has a perfect right to shape one lump of clay into a vase for holding flowers and another into a pot for cooking beans? If God needs one style of pottery especially designed to show his angry displeasure and another style carefully crafted to show his glorious goodness, isn’t that all right? Either or both happens to Jews, but it also happens to the other people. Hosea put it well: I’ll call nobodies and make them somebodies; I’ll call the unloved and make them beloved. In the place where they yelled out, “You’re nobody!” they’re calling you “God’s living children.” Isaiah maintained this same emphasis: If each grain of sand on the seashore were numbered and the sum labeled “chosen of God,” They’d be numbers still, not names; salvation comes by personal selection. God doesn’t count us; he calls us by name. Arithmetic is not his focus. Isaiah had looked ahead and spoken the truth: If our powerful God had not provided us a legacy of living children, We would have ended up like ghost towns, like Sodom and Gomorrah. How can we sum this up? All those people who didn’t seem interested in what God was doing actually embraced what God was doing as he straightened out their lives. And Israel, who seemed so interested in reading and talking about what God was doing, missed it. How could they miss it? Because instead of trusting God, they took over. They were absorbed in what they themselves were doing. They were so absorbed in their “God projects” that they didn’t notice God right in front of them, like a huge rock in the middle of the road. And so they stumbled into him and went sprawling. Isaiah (again!) gives us the metaphor for pulling this together: Careful! I’ve put a huge stone on the road to Mount Zion, a stone you can’t get around. But the stone is me! If you’re looking for me, you’ll find me on the way, not in the way.
Romans 9:14-33 MSG
Being promiscuous with your body has natural consequences such as
- Domestic Violence
- Incurable STD’s
- Homelessness & Poverty
Dont let this world trick you to believe you can be “free” to love who you want and do whatever you want in regards to sexual immorality… God will give you over to a debased mind and you will suffer the penalty you deserve …
What Does This Have To Do With Rahab ?
Gomer had to be destroyed before she came to God & Rahab had to be mistreated…. she was a moral leper WHEN she found God… and even Mary Madalagne had to be healed from insanity when she came to Jesus… When you go to Jesus STAY there and dont let the devil trick you with music and bad company.
And when you get married attention getting when you go to work , school , or even church from other men shouldn’t be your primary focus….. It shouldn’t even be a thought ! Why would you boast about other men looking at you when you already have a husband? Who cares! focus on God and your family! Be focused on God, the husband , and family HE gave you…. because it’s terrible out here.
And dont think you can get away scotch free from your adultery … David & Bathsheba had to pay for it… You ain’t David so what do you think is going to happen to you ?
… But anyways… Remember these verses the next time you want to be promiscuous, have a adulterous friend, or want to cheat on your spouse for no apparent reason.
And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel: ‘When a man or woman commits any sin that men commit in unfaithfulness against the Lord , and that person is guilty, then he shall confess the sin which he has committed. He shall make restitution for his trespass in full, plus one-fifth of it, and give it to the one he has wronged. And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘If any man’s wife goes astray and behaves unfaithfully toward him, and a man lies with her carnally, and it is hidden from the eyes of her husband, and it is concealed that she has defiled herself, and there was no witness against her, nor was she caught— if the spirit of jealousy comes upon him and he becomes jealous of his wife, who has defiled herself; or if the spirit of jealousy comes upon him and he becomes jealous of his wife, although she has not defiled herself— then the man shall bring his wife to the priest. He shall bring the offering required for her, one-tenth of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil on it and put no frankincense on it, because it is a grain offering of jealousy, an offering for remembering, for bringing iniquity to remembrance. ‘And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the Lord . And the priest shall put her under oath, and say to the woman, “If no man has lain with you, and if you have not gone astray to uncleanness while under your husband’s authority, be free from this bitter water that brings a curse. But if you have gone astray while under your husband’s authority, and if you have defiled yourself and some man other than your husband has lain with you”— and may this water that causes the curse go into your stomach, and make your belly swell and your thigh rot.” ‘ Then the woman shall say, “Amen, so be it.” When he has made her drink the water, then it shall be, if she has defiled herself and behaved unfaithfully toward her husband, that the water that brings a curse will enter her and become bitter, and her belly will swell, her thigh will rot, and the woman will become a curse among her people.
Numbers 5:1, 5-7, 11-16, 19-20, 22, 27 NKJV
“But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that woman—that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray. She teaches them to commit sexual sin and to eat food offered to idols. I gave her time to repent, but she does not want to turn away from her immorality. “Therefore, I will throw her on a bed of suffering, and those who commit adultery with her will suffer greatly unless they repent and turn away from her evil deeds. I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am the one who searches out the thoughts and intentions of every person. And I will give to each of you whatever you deserve. To all who are victorious, who obey me to the very end, To them I will give authority over all the nations. They will rule the nations with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots. They will have the same authority I received from my Father, and I will also give them the morning star! “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.
