VIII. MAIN BODY:

Matthew 14:8 (Amplified Bible)

And she, being put forward and prompted by her mother, said, Give me the head of John the Baptist right here on a platter.

A. Prompted by her unbelieving/unrighteous mother

"And she, being put forward and prompted by her mother,"

Imagine a little girl that is a murderer, taught by unrighteous/unbelieving mother. Her mother only wants the riches of King Herod so is willing to commit adultery with the king. Her mother lost her soul for the riches of this world.

Mark 8:36 (Amplified Bible)

For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his life [in the eternal kingdom of God]?

Matthew 16:26 (Amplified Bible)

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life [his blessed life in the kingdom of God]? Or what would a man give as an exchange for his [blessed] life [in the kingdom of God]?

These are the kind of woman willing to kill just to get rich. I remember some women who are like this in the bible.

Some evil women willing to exchange her soul for the love of this world:

1. Eve - didn't know she's already perfect because she's created in the image of GOD.

Genesis 3:6 (Amplified Bible)

And when the woman saw that the tree was good (suitable, pleasant) for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave some also to her husband, and he ate.

Genesis 1:27 (Amplified Bible)

So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.

2. Delilah - willing to kill Samson for 1,000 pieces of silver

Judges 16:5-6 (Amplified Bible)

And the lords of the Philistines came to her and said to her, Entice him and see in what his great strength lies, and by what means we may overpower him that we may bind him to subdue him. And we will each give you 1,100 pieces of silver.

And Delilah said to Samson, Tell me, I pray you, wherein your great strength lies, and with what you might be bound to subdue you.

3. wife of Job - for she knows that when Job died, he will get rid of him, without blood staining her hands.

Job 2:9 (Amplified Bible)

Then his wife said to him, Do you still hold fast your blameless uprightness? Renounce God and die!

4. wife of Potiphar - never considered adultery as a huge deal, as long as she gets the lust of her body consumed with Joseph

Genesis 39:6-7 (Amplified Bible)

And [Potiphar] left all that he had in Joseph’s charge and paid no attention to anything he had except the food he ate. Now Joseph was an attractive person and fine-looking.
