Transformation from prostitute to mother.

By faith the prostitute Rehab, because she welcomed the spies, was not killed with those who were disobedient. Heb.11:33
In Hebrews 11 we are presented with heroes of faith. And amidst of them we meet somebody who doesn’t fit in, prostitute. I heard that in history some Bible scholars even wanted to make her portrait nicer, pretending she wasn’t really prostitute but the owner of tavern. But God in foreseeing that made sure and in James 2:25 repeated the title she was known by in her time so dispersed any doubts.
Why would God do that? The One whose name is Redeemer wanted to tell something to us. That wasn’t the end of the story.
Next time we meet this woman in genealogy of Jesus Christ. And her title there was changed on mother.
I picture the drama that was happening in Jericho. The city was doomed. God himself came as a leader of the army of God to destroy the evil city. But her house ( in the wall) was left untouched. God knew the address of this woman. And Israelites not only saved her life and the lives of those who belonged to her, they took her with them. In spite of the law and what it says about prostitutes and future of their children, she was given a grace and mercy. She got married. She became one of them. And as result she raised great son by the name of Boaz who showed mercy to another well know woman Ruth, and who became great grandfather of the King David and Jesus himself.

Тraining "How to set boundaries to children with love and respect"

And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous – to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. Luke 1:17
 Jesus is coming back. When we see violence on the streets our hearts cry out “COME”. And the Spirit and the bride say “COME”. This is the cry of the heart, and yet we have a task to get the people ready for He is coming. But how would we do that? I read again and again the passage about first coming of Christ. “To turn the hearts of the fathers...
 Have you ever seen the eyes of the child who was frightened by screaming and rage, which was shacked and beaten in the face, so terrified that now he couldn’t remember why he was beaten up. He feels humiliated, wanted so badly to be comforted by mummy. But what if the one who did abuse was the mummy? Then there is no safe place to go to be comforted.
