Anyone who would believe that polygamy, according to God’s Holy Scripture, is dead, would believe that God is dead, and that the Bible is meaningless.

I, Tony, just as Paul and the twelve disciples of Jesus, was not called into the ministry by man, but was divinely called, supernaturally and directly called by God Himself. Jesus stated to His disciples, You are my witnesses (eyewitnesses) (Luke 24:48). Later, the disciples in the book of Acts stated that they too were eyewitnesses. They had seen Jesus, and were not ashamed to tell of His miracles, His death, and His resurrection. They were not ashamed to preach the full truth of God’s Word, the rewards for believing, and the eternal damnation for disbelieving.

To be qualified for Apostleship, one had to be directly called from God and to have seen Him. Paul stated that he had seen Jesus and was personally witnessed to by Jesus Himself on the road to Damascus. Jesus said to Paul, “For I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in that which I will appear unto thee” (Acts 26:16). Jesus appeared before me also for the same purpose, and 1 am proud of it.

Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus. For this, Judas is confined forever in hell’s burning pit. Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias, these two were other eyewitnesses directly called by Jesus, and were qualified to draw lots to see who it would be to fill the office of an eyewitness and be an Apostle of Jesus Christ, the same office of apostleship that wicked Judas despised and abused, to his own everlasting hurt.

The Gospel of John, chapter 1, verses 1, 5 and 14, and Revelation, chapter 19, verse 13, both state clearly that Jesus is the Word of God, God magnifies His Word above His name (Psalm 138:2). Jesus is the truth (John 14:6). And Jesus said that He didn’t come to destroy the law (which includes polygamy, and in the case of God’s Levirate law, enforces polygamy), but to enforce the law [the Torah) (Matthew 5:17). The real Jesus of the real Bible said these words and means them: “Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5:18). “For the law (defines and condemns sin) was given by Moses, but grace (the forgiveness of sin and power) and truth (go and sin no more) came by Jesus Christ” (John 1:17).

God is not dead. I talk to Him all the time. God answers me; He delivers me, and shows me great and mighty things. God’s Word says, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” (Jeremiah 33:3). How could one serve a God if His Words were uncertain, unstable, undependable, vague, and ambiguous?


Moses was one of God’s big shots. Moses was used by God to write the first five books of the Old Testament. God dictated His unchangeable, everlasting, moral laws, their statutes, and their precepts to Moses, It was Moses whom God called from a burning bush in Horeb to go back to Egypt for the purpose of delivering the plain message to Pharaoh, “Let my son (Israel) go, that he may serve me” (Exodus 4:23). And it was Moses whom God surely used to deliver Israel from the iron furnace of bondage and servitude that held the Jews in Egypt.

Moses was the husband of at least three wives. Zipporah was Moses’ first wife (Exodus 2:21), the Ethiopian woman was his second wife (Numbers 12:1), and Holy Scripture mentions Heber, the Kenite as the father of Moses’ third wife (Judges 4:11). These are three of the wives of Moses recorded in Scripture. There may have been many others that were not recorded. Moses was 80 years old when God called him to deliver Israel. It was after this age that God gave him more wives, more helpmates. When God took him away at age 120, “his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated” (Deuteronomy 34:7),


Abraham, the father of faith, the first Jew, was married to Sarah, Hagar, and Keturah, and Abraham also had many concubines who bore him many sons (Genesis 11:29, 16:3, 25:1, I Chronicles 1:32). “Unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son…” (Genesis 25:6). God greatly blessed Abraham and his seed. It was through Abraham and Sarah that the miracle child of promise, Isaac, miraculously was born when Sarah was well past the age of childbearing (90 years old), and Abraham’s body was as good as dead (100 years old) (Hebrews 11:1112). It was through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and their descendants that Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world came and blessed the entire world by giving us, through Him, the opportunity to receive forgiveness of sins and eternal life. So through Abraham (THE POLYGAMIST.) came the Messiah of the world who blesses every nation.


God also blessed Jacob (THE POLYGAMIST) who begat the fathers of the twelve tribes of Israel with two wives, Leah and Rachel, and two concubines, Bilhah and Zilpah (Genesis 29:2330, 30:49, 32:22). Jacob needed deliverance from trouble and wrestled all night with the Lord for His blessing of protection against his angry brother Esau. Jacob prevailed in his wrestling match with God. God could not win this struggle with Jacob because Jacob stood upon the Word of God. Not only Jacob, but anyone who stands on the Word of God and will not be denied, cannot lose, even against God. God cannot prevail against anyone, including you, if you esteem God’s Word as being the highest authority, you can rest assured of that. Therefore God told Jacob (THE POLYGAMIST), “Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed” (Genesis 32:28).

Moses, Abraham, and Jacob were not sinners. If they were, God could not and would not have blessed them. God’s Word never calls polygamy sin. According to God’s Word adultery, fornication, and divorcing one’s spouse, save for the cause of adultery, to marry another are sins worthy of everlasting damnation.
