Zika Sexual Transmission Disease Epidemic & Dead Intercourse

Unknown-8.jpeg

“Finally, Zika reminds us that over and over nature is a formidable enemy,” he said. “We wish we knew more we wish we could do more. We know this is anxiety provoking for pregnant women and their families.”

Notice the phrase “nature is a formidable enemy.”

This is a direct source reporting on the new epidemic that is transmitted sexually.

While nature plays a role in infecting certain people around the world, we see that it cannot stop humans from engaging in illegal sex called adultery and fornication.

Now we are reminded that this disease can affect married couples that never engaged in illegal sex.

So what’s the point?

The point is simple. We know that people engage in homosexuality, bisexuality, fornication and adultery.

It’s a reminder that we need to abstain from sin.

It is also a reminder that these are the last days as the Lord Jesus told us.

Matthew 24:7-8 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

Note Strong’s Concordance definition of the word “pestilence.”

g3061. λοιμός loimos; of uncertain affinity; a plague (literally, the disease, or figuratively, a pest):— pestilence (- t).
AV (3)- pestilence 2, pestilent 1;
pestilence a pestilent fellow, pest, plague

So if there is any question about the last days, look no further. Many more may be headed this way but it is a sign of the end times before the coming of the Lord.

As a note, earthquakes have occurred in Oklahoma on a regular basis. Japan has had an eruption recently. Nations are rising against nations. Just look at the on going battle in Syria, Ukraine, Iraq, and other places. Famine is still an issue around the world.

Jesus said that “All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

The additional definition of sorrows is as follows……“the pain of childbirth, travail pain, birth pangs intolerable anguish, in reference to the dire calamities precede the advent of the Messiah.”

Like a woman that is about to give birth, these signs are upon us. Whether they are occurring rapidly or with varying intensity, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is that it is happening just like the Lord said.

That’s what we should be paying attention to. Unmistakeable, undeniable signs that point to the coming of the Lord.

So if you are still caught in the web of illegal sexual activity, Revelation 21:8, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Hebrews 13:4, and Matthew 15:18-19 is looking at all those that run the stop sign of God’s Word.

Dead Intercourse

This was posted on my FB timeline.

There was a man in a certain country that solicited the services of a prostitute. It would be his last sex sin. The paramedics had to place his dead corpse on a gurney with the living prostitute on top.

Evidently, his penis enlarged itself in her vagina and possibly rigor mortis set in where she couldn’t disconnect from intercourse. Or possibly, the man took viagra and blood settle in his penis, who knows?

But according to Proverbs 7, the prostitute, as an immoral woman, is the staircase, descending into the “chambers of death.”

Chambers is defined as an “apartment.” 

This is where we get “prison cells” from.

This man committed adultery or fornication, died in bed, and went directly to his eternal “prison cell.”

Such a story resonates. But people will not listen. They will continue to seek pleasures rather than seeking God.

Brothers, watch where your eyes travel. Too much flesh on DailyMail.

 

Homosexuality In Methodism: Apostasy vs. Antichrist

rev-cynthia-meyer-edgerton-umc-690x359.jpg

The once stalwart denominations of the times is experiencing a falling back from the faith.

The female Methodist pastor announces her “coming out.”

But before we discuss this insidious act, notice what Hebrews 10:35-39 says.

“Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:
“For yet a little while,
And He who is coming will come and will not tarry.
Now the just shall live by faith;
But if anyone draws back,
My soul has no pleasure in him.”
But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.”

In WOF (Word of Faith) circles, a serious misinterpretation is preached and taught. I’ve taught it too until the Lord showed me what it was really all about.

This passage, as with the entire book of Hebrews has nothing to do with believing God about things or material possessions. From the beginning chapter to the end, we see that it was about the great challenge to stay faithful to Christ no matter how many abusive doctrines and persecution comes.

The prosperity gospel is another gospel for which if anyone preaches another gospel, they are accursed (see Galatians 1:6-10).

The purist form of the gospel is always centralized around the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.

Paul said it powerfully. “Christ, and Him crucified.”

Jesus was crucified for our sins and arose on the third day for our justification.

Even though we are guilty of sin, because we’ve repented, and placed our faith in Jesus alone for salvation, we are made the righteousness of God in Christ. Guilty, but by HIs grace, and sacrifice, we are innocent.

But there are many preachers that will completely ignore contextual teaching to preach their “pet” doctrine. Their emotions got the best of them and they will defend their indefensible position to the death.

Now look at Hebrews 10 again. Note that it’s about a drawing back.

These believers were persecuted to such an extent that they were willing to walk away from the Lord.

People will either walk away from Jesus because they love sin more than their Lord or because they were either coerced or persecuted for their faith.

In the case of a Methodist female pastor, she decided that it would be the time to announce her homosexual relationship. She loved her sin more than the Savior.

Five things could be at play here.

  1. Apostasy (2 Thessalonians 2:3).
  2. Sin (Luke 8:11-14).
  3. Coercion from persecution (Hebrews 10:35-39).
  4. Tares (Jude verse 4, Matthew 13:24-30).
  5. Antichrist (1 John 2:18-19).

These five things could operate in combinations as well.

While we do not know everything, preponderance suggests that she was in this relationship for quite some time. She was probably wrestling with keeping her Secret Sexual Sins a secret and “minister,” or tell her church members.

She finally elected to tell her church members.

She probably felt relieved.

The high leadership had already sent notice that it goes against traditional church teaching and of course, the Bible. But sinners do not care. The lust in their hearts is strong and it’s a clear example of Romans 1:18.

If she were a believer, then this is apostasy. If she were never a believer, then it is unregenerate sinning. If she was a plant of the devil, then this is tares among wheat. And if she were an antichrist, well, we need not go any further.

In WOF circles, being an antichrist is defined as being anti anointing.

That’s an incorrect definition.

Even if you are able to perform miracles in His name, Matthew 7:21-23 is evident.

To be an antichrist, it’s about the holy character of Jesus. It’s not about the power of God operating in people according to 1 Corinthians 12. It is about the holy nature of Jesus to abstain from sin and live holy by obeying the commandments of the Lord Jesus.

You are not going to be persecuted for power. You will be persecuted for walking like Jesus.

If this pastor were a believer, she walked away from walking like Jesus to live in sin.

Preachers are not to be known by how well they preach but by how well they live what Jesus preached.

To conclude, we see that sin has their hearts, their minds, and their bodies.

This is not the last story. This is a story among many others that will be played out before our eyes. Many are praying for a Great Awakening to happen in the United States.

Here is the “Great Awakening.”

Ephesians 5:8 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”

U.S. Episcopal Church Punished Over Homosexual Marriage

Unknown-6.jpeg

The Anglican Church suspended the U.S. Episcopal church for acceptance of homosexual marriage.

God’s Word demands more than a suspension.

1 Corinthians 5:9-11, Paul says “I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner — not even to eat with such a person.”

With such a “suspension,” you are still associated. We all know that it is in hopes of reconciling. However, reconciliation demands separation to underscore the severity of their sin.

Paul said in Ephesians 5:8-14 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”

So there must be excommunication until there is a renunciation of the sin of homosexuality.

To undergird renunciation, there must be repentance of sin and a re-establishing of a complete unadulterated love for God and unquestioned obedience to His Word to abstain from sexual immorality.

Hebrews 12:14 says, “Pursue peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man sees the Lord.”

In this article, the Bishop in DC cited no Scriptural basis that validate continuing in the sin of homosexuality. As always, they use the word “love” to attempt to circumvent God’s vehemence against the sin of homosexuality.

The Bible is full of Scripture that is against homosexuality but there is zero Scripture permitting the sin of homosexuality.

When you deny that the Bible is final authority, man has no authority to authorize any sin that God condemned. To do so would make man higher than God.

Last I’ve checked, we die, not God. The created is never above The Creator.

I defy anyone to throw God off His throne and kill Him.

This is exactly what the devil and the world wants to do but it is 100% IMPOSSIBLE.

The Anglican Church need to establish backbone policy and disassociate themselves according to Scripture. Only then will their actions be deemed valid. To parlay with rebels keeps the wrath of God upon all who defy the Word of God.

Just like there is no tolerance for law breakers (or at least that’s the way it’s supposed to be), there must be zero tolerance for anyone that circumvent God’s Word to facilitate and foster sin.

Either God and His Word is holy and demands adherents to follow the Word of God, or God and His Word is meaningless, and we can do what we wish.

2016 Super Bowl HalfTime Show: Secret Sexual Sins Alert

Unknown-5.jpeg

A few years ago, I received an alert from the Holy Spirit.  He told me not to watch the Super Bowl. I sensed this same urgency this year. Since that first warning, I’ve never watched the Super Bowl again.

I’ve sequestered my heart from sports events because of their association with abrasive sexual immorality in the media world. I am not imposing this upon others that watch sports. 

I’m trying not to be legalistic with you but UNGODLY TV is just waiting on your need to be entertained and deliberately plant several sensual seeds into your mind. Jesus said in Matthew 6:22-23…
“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light.

But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”

Your eye represent the portal by which evil or good enters. 

If what you’re desiring is good or evil, you will look at good or evil. 

Then we try to cleanse our minds of the filth and sometimes it’s not as successful. That’s because we try to pray and we can’t get through to God. Like clogged drains, our hearts are muddied with the world. 

I know the dangers of pictures well enough to know that it’s a set up to get my heart polluted with the world. The gains that I’ve achieved in the Lord were hard fought gains. I cannot give the devil ground. Ephesians 4:27 says, “Neither give place to the devil.”

Jesus said in John 14:30, “the ruler of this world is coming and he has nothing in me.”

It’s called the zero factor.

If the Bible is true, and I believe it is, we can put a halt to everything that the devil use to do in us. We close off the areas where he was once lord.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5 says, “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. Bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ…..”

Temptation is just a suggestion and the Lord will not allow satan “to tempt us beyond that which we are able to resist, but will with the temptation also make a way of escape that we may be able to bear it” according to 1 Corinthians 10:13.

As with all men, football is a right of passage for men and since they’ve really increased the visibility and entertainment aspect of professional football, unbeknownst to us, the other not so well seen activities have increased.

Any city that gets the Super Bowl opens up the door to sexual predators and addicts on every level. With these sports venue, the amount of sexual immorality increases.

Normally, it would be about female prostitutes, but there is no question that male prostitutes are available for homosexuals. Let’s not forget bisexual activity is part of the game.

High end escorts, and other activities and kidnapping, drugs, alcohol, gambling. It’s all interconnected.

For professed believers, they will watch the Super Bowl too.

And of course the Halftime show.

Once again a seductress will be on display.

Beyonce`

And professed Christian men will once again be slain at her altar.

Proverbs 7:24-27 “Now therefore, listen to me, my children;
Pay attention to the words of my mouth: Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, Do not stray into her paths; For she has cast down many wounded, And all who were slain by her were strong men. Her house is the way to hell, Descending to the chambers of death.”

You may not be with her in bed, but your heart and mind is there, and you join with the spirit of the harlot as you masturbate.

Remember what the Lord said about cutting off your hands and plucking out your eyes.

Are we men to abstain from the Super Bowl?

If you love God more than anything, you know what you have to do.

Am I imposing legalism? Am I a “Pharisee?”

In your mind, I know that you are thinking about these things. But let’s look at pleasing the Lord for a moment.

In fact, why don’t you turn on the halftime show and ask the Lord to watch it approvingly with you. Sarcastically, I’m sure the Lord Jesus will give you the thumbs up.

You know good and well that the world is not going to spare your eyes with feminine power. Ladies, we are not berating you. We are opposed to sexual immoral women and men. Everything that is of the world, we must hate it as God hates it.

If you do not hate what God hates and love what God loves, James 4:4 abides on you.

Romans 8 tells us that they that are in the flesh cannot please God. There is no life and peace in the things of the flesh.

Remember what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 5:28 “But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

You do not have to have her physically to be slain by her and descend into hell.

1 John 2:15-17 says  “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world —the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.”

But these men will watch anyway.

No discipline.

No true love for God and His Word.

They will ignore the warning from the Holy Spirit and be engulfed in lust. They will file these vile images in their minds to masturbate off of later.

Then there will be those that will heed the warning from the Holy Spirit according to Matthew 5:27-28, Romans 13:11-14, 1 Corinthians 10:13, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, 7:1, James 1:21, Hebrews 12:14, and Job 31:1.

God in heaven, in Jesus’ name, we pray that each man will take heed and cleanse himself from the evil that will be displayed on network TV. That they would abstain from the appearance of evil.

That they would not entertain the temptation of the enemy. But that they would fill their mind with You and Your Word. That each man would learn how to sanctify they hearts.


That they would fight the urge to watch perversion and evil. That they would keep their eyes on You, Lord. That they would not set any wicked thing before their eyes according to Psalm 101:3.

Masturbation: The Most Unholy Place

Unknown-3.jpeg

Picture from flicker.com

Great article by Rick Warren of Saddleback Church on “How To Have A Fresh Start After Committing Sexual Sin”…..except…..as always, the majority of these articles never bring up the reason for watching pornography.

Masturbation.

Masturbation is the Most Unholy Place.

It is The Taboo of Taboo.

Like you have in the temple in the OT patterned after the temple in heaven.

The holy place and then the Most Holy Place

Porn is the unholy place and masturbation is the Most Unholy Place.

Why?

Very few address masturbation for a number of reasons. And it is usually because the author and other authors, based on preponderance, MIGHT have been involved.

It is PROBABLE that they are still involved with masturbation.

I could be wrong because I don’t know everything as God does.

It is embarrassing but when you really want to come clean, transparency in this area prevents God from exposing this secret.

Hebrews 4:13 “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.”

So, when I talk about my involvement with porn and masturbation, humbly, I remove the exposing power of God from His hands. I take away His opportunity to tell everyone what I did in secret. God has no story to tell.

When it comes to sexual immorality, this is Psalm 90:8.

Masturbation is the high place that most men and women refuse to destroy.

And they can’t destroy it on their own. It takes the redemptive power of God and the help of others that have either maintained their walk before God, who never fell, or were once involved in masturbation that broke free and maintained their freedom for more than 3 years, and for the rest of their lives.

If you read the books of 1 and 2 Kings, and Chronicles, whenever reform was made, very few would destroy the high place. The reason behind it was that it would be reserved for the exclusive worship of God. Then after the reform ended, they resumed to business as usual.

While Rick Warren’s article has very meaningful steps to address the issue of SECRET SEXUAL SINS, the very thing that keeps a person returning to the high place of masturbation is “no fear of God before their eyes” (see Romans 3:18).

Thank God that the grace of God is there for us when we repent, but what is missing is that when we resume a habit, cycle, or pattern that is not condoned in Scripture, there is no question that what is absent is the “fear of the Lord.”

Ecclesiastes 8:11-13 “Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Though a sinner does evil a hundred times, and his days are prolonged, yet I surely know that it will be well with those who fear God, who fear before Him. But it will not be well with the wicked; nor will he prolong his days, which are as a shadow, because he does not fear before God.”

We are afraid when we see flashing lights behind us when we are caught speeding or caught with a traffic violation. We are afraid when we lie in court because of perjury and its penalty. We are afraid when we do some crime and the police officer arrests us.

But why is it that we are not afraid when we sin against the Lord?

God gives us space to repent based on His graciousness to reconsider what we are doing and make things right with God.

If we fail to conclude that sex was designed by God between one male and one female in holy matrimony, and that sex outside of this sacred institution is a violation, then it is very easy to take what we’ve declared as God being silent and give ourselves permission.

The Bible is silent on permission and prohibition of masturbation, but because sex is designed by God to be shared between one man and one woman in marriage to become one flesh, the clear conclusion is that masturbation is a sin.

You cannot become one flesh with solo sex.

Your conscience testifies that it is a sin because every person senses in their heart that what they’ve done in secret pierced the heart.

Romans 2:14-16 says “…for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them) in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.”

Did you get this?

“God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ…”

Tie that with Psalm 90:8 and you have no where to hide, and no reasoning to justify the continuation of masturbation. 

So even if you do not have anything written on paper, you show the works of the law written in your hearts, your conscience also bearing witness, and between yourselves your thoughts accusing or else excusing you.

Further proof is when you are looking for a way to continue in masturbation. Just like atheists proves the existence of God, the fact that you’ve asked that this is a sin or not is proof that it is a sin. You are looking for a way to sin just like Adam and Eve. Abiding by God’s established order of sex in marriage between one male and one female ends the reasoning to sin and the argument.

I’ll keep saying it.

NO ONE WATCHES PORN AND DOESN’T ACT OUT SEXUALLY IN ADULTERY, FORNICATION, BISEXUALITY, HOMOSEXUALITY, AND MASTURBATION.

So if we want to please the Lord as Jesus did according to what He said in John 8:29, like Enoch in Hebrews 11:5-6, and like what Paul said in Romans 8:8, that they that are in the flesh cannot please God. So how can we please God? By walking in the Spirit, living by the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

Therefore masturbation is a work of the flesh that disqualifies us from pleasing God in the Spirit.

OUCH!!!!

So to stop the revolving door of masturbation, Rick Warren’s article outlines critical steps, BUT to permanently stop masturbation, the fear of the Lord must be evident.

An accountability partner brings that fear especially when they ask you if you’ve watched porn and masturbated. This is also another thing that is missing in his article. 

You cannot watch yourself.

YOU call the shots and make the rules when you declare self accountability.

Many preachers that end up committing adultery hate having the heat on them in personal accountability. It’s right at the point, which is a few weeks after the excitement dies down, that they want to be released from accountability. Their masturbation habits, patterns, and cycles according to Romans 13:11-14 is still “fresh in their flesh.”

The inner discipline was never established to begin with and they are back to touching themselves sexually. They haven’t learned, over time, the disciplines required to forever abstain from masturbation, so it is easy to resume very early after adultery.

That’s why it’s a secret.

Masturbation is the MOST UNHOLY PLACE that men and women do not want to destroy. 

As David Wilkerson once said, you have to break covenant with sin. 

This stronghold must be dismantled and then removed for good. Then the inner discipline must be established to forever forsake it according to Proverbs 28:13.

So, once again, great article by Rick Warren, however, it is time to be for real about pulling the covers off on what men and women do secretly and expose it according Ephesians 5:8-14.

Otherwise, SECRET SEXUAL SINS will continue.

Pastor & His Wife’s Lewd Birthday Party

Unknown-1.jpeg

There was an article written by Dr. Michael Brown that shared about a man attending a pastor’s wife’s birthday party. The pastor was the DJ and played worldly secular music with vulgar language.

The wife of the pastor danced to the music, according to the article, as if she were a stripper in a strip club.

I read an article called “The Seamless Fabric” a few years ago and porn, masturbation, strip clubs, prostitution, sex trafficking for the sex trade, child kidnapping, drugs, alcohol, and other things are inseparable. Also porn stars are prostitutes.

The low pay that porn stars receive, between 150 and 350 for 16 hours of work obviously is not enough. These low end porn stars prostitute themselves and get paid within the range of 1000 and 3000 dollars for one hour’s work.

Years ago when I was involved in porn and masturbation, I deliberately deceived myself into thinking that when I did porn that it was disconnected from all the other things listed above.

When I bought PPV porn, I didn’t realize that my 14.99 paid the porn producer, the drugs she may have used on the set to help her cope through the rape scenes, the gas for the vehicles of kidnapers. Everyone gets a piece of the pie when you pay.

You may not think so. When you are so deceived, it is very easy to compartmentalize, trivialize, and separate what you are doing from the crimes committed while attempting to please yourself.

I said all this to get you to see that if the pastor’s wife is acting in this manner, it is clear that her husband may have serious connections to the underworld. In fact, it is possible that they watch porn together. While I do not have facts to back up my claim, based on preponderance, there is a clear possible connection.

I could be wrong.

Today, there are many professed believers that believe that it is perfectly fine to sin because of “grace.”

Grace didn’t deliver you from sin to commit more sin. Grace delivered you as a favor from God to give to you eternal salvation that you do not deserve.

Then grace works in you to abstain from sin (see Romans 6:1).

Ephesians 2:8-9 says “For by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast.”

In other words, there is no amount of works that could ever save us. We do not abstain from sin as a work to get into the kingdom. We work righteousness as a result of the Lord giving us the power to abstain.

A lightbulb is powerless until it is placed in the lamp stand with the power turned on.

It can’t work until it is hooked up to power.

Such it is with grace. Our salvation need power that can only come from God. If a lightbulb could work without power, there would be no need to be hooked up.

These pastors and others sin because Romans 3:18 says, “They have no fear of God before their eyes.”

When you have no fear of God before your eyes, it is very easy to say….from Ezekiel 8:12 “Then He said to me, “Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the room of his idols? For they say, ‘The Lord does not see us, the Lord has forsaken the land.’”

When you deceive yourself into saying that the Lord doesn’t see you, and you are not afraid to sin against God, Ecclesiastes 8:11 says, “Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.”

So because there is no fear of God in the eyes of the pastor and his wife, there is no question that there is no fear of God before the eyes of those that watch porn while God watches you.

There was a time that I had no regard for God and His Word. I preached it but I didn’t live it. In hypocrisy I lived. While I was watching porn and masturbating (because no one watches porn and not masturbate), God was watching with me. If I had any sense, which I didn’t, I could feel the grief of God. But also, I could just only imagine the rage of jealousy in His eyes as another lover consumed me.

I played the harlot. Spiritual adultery. I was unfaithful to God. I allowed another lover to take my heart.

Upon reading this title, some of you probably thought that God approves. We are all human and he understands our flesh. They were just having fun at a party. It’s just a party. Don’t we have a right to party?

What a poor excuse.

When you cast of restraint, the church loses its testimony as a house of righteousness and holiness.

Proverbs 29:18 says “Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law.”

The Amplified Bible says. “Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man] —blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he.”

The same thing happened at Shiloh. The ark of the covenant was taken, God uses Eli’s weight to kill him, Hophni and Phinehas committed sexual immorality and lost their lives in battle, Phinehas’ wife gives birth to Ichabod and dies during child birth.

The glory departed.

The eyes of Eli grew dim and it was indicative of this Scripture…..1 Samuel 3:1-3a “And the child Samuel ministered unto the Lord before Eli. And the word of the Lord was precious in those days; there was no open vision. And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see; And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the Lord, where the ark of God was…”

When people can’t see or when people refuse to see because they cast off restraint, the light goes out. Eli was a leader and if the leader can’t see, the people can’t see either. Or if the leader refuses to see, the people will refuse to see too.

This is self deception that suppresses the knowledge of the truth. As I read the article, many will read into this and feel outraged that a pastor and his wife would do such a thing. But one thing that I’ve noticed is that while there was some words addressing the grace of God and other issues, the one thing that was missing, and I could be wrong, was the lack of the fear of God.

No one is afraid of God any more.

I understand that it is easy to apply “legalism” to this statement about the fear of God but look very carefully at the time Israel provoked the Lord and you will see the hot displeasure of the Lord.

Fast forward this into the NT, and we do not see the hot displeasure of the Lord except with Ananias and Sapphira. We also see this with Herod when he was eaten of worms. Then there is Elymas the sorcerer that was blinded for withstanding the gospel. In each instance, great fear” came upon the believers.

In 1 Corinthians 11, Paul mentioned about taking communion unworthily or in the wrong manner, and that all who do so end up “sick, weak, and fall asleep,” because they didn’t “judge themselves.”

In this dispensation of grace, we see that the Lord is still serious about the fear of the Lord. Look at the book of Revelation and we will see that in chapters 1 through 3, the Lord is still dealing with the church when 5 of 7 churches allowed certain worldly doctrines to infiltrate the “called out ones.”

There is only one reason why false doctrine infiltrates the church.

No fear of God.

We begin to teach strange doctrine that Paul warned us about in Galatians chapter 1, Acts 20, and 1 Timothy 1.

In 1 Corinthians Paul turns over a member of the church to satan for the destruction of the flesh that they may be saved because this man had his father’s wife. An incestuous relationship not even heard of in the world and it happened in the church. Paul does it again in 2 Timothy to those that blasphemed so that people would be afraid to sin against the Lord because two men brought in a cancerous doctrine.

Paul also said to Timothy to rebuke the elders that sin so that others would be afraid to sin.

Clearly, these doctrines are missing today because there is no fear of God before our eyes.

In the same manner, when it comes to sexual sins, we “invent” doctrines to either justify and or permit our indulgence in the sins we, as the late pastor David Wilkerson would say, “made a covenant with.”

Making a covenant with sins demands that you either suppress the truth of the Scriptures or use a perverted twist of the Scriptures to continue in sin.

Covenant with sin demands that you walk into the house of the Lord without any fear to commit sin. That’s why it is easy for pastors, and their wives to have these lewd parties.

Romans 13:13 “Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.”

The sad thing is that there were probably members of the church that were there. According to this article, other pastors and their wives were there. There is no question about 2 Peter 3:3-4 “…knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

They are not ready for the coming of the Lord. They are scoffers or mockers that mock the coming of the Lord.

Matthew 24:43-44 says “But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

And that’s where there is an absence of the fear of the Lord. They do not think that Jesus is coming back, so they begin to live riotously.

Matthew 24:48-51 “But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

We pray that they would repent and return to the Lord. To produce godly sorrow for grieving the Lord. To come back to obedience to the faith before the Lord returns.

Masturbation: Go And Sin No More

In John chaptimages-1.jpeger 5, the man at the pool of Bethesda was the only person healed by the Lord Jesus. Later on, the Lord said to him “Go, and sin no more lest a worst thing come upon you.” 

The man that was healed was in his condition for 38 years. He couldn’t walk. For the Lord Jesus to tell him to “go and sin no more” is an indication or a blatant statement that sin opened the door for his inability to walk.

Before I continue, there are many books, statements, and comments that state that the Bible said nothing, PROHIBITING masturbation.

The Bible said nothing PERMITTING masturbating either. 

You know that.

Sex was established by the Lord between one male and one female in matrimony. Genesis 2:21-25, Matthew 19:4-5, 1 Corinthians 6:15-18, 7:1-9, and Ephesians 5:31.

You will also note that no proponents of masturbation will quote any Scriptures to justify masturbation.

So any sex outside of these Scriptures is called “sexual immorality.”

In subsequent posts, I asked the question as to why we feel we have done wrong after masturbation.

The answer is simple.

The conscience witnessed to you that you have violated the Word of God. The passages of Scripture above, and others witnessed to you that you have violated the Word of God. The instinctive thing to do is to suppress this feeling with the deception of fulfilling a need.

There are other things that we use to excuse ourselves and suppress the truth. In any case, no matter what you use to suppress the truth, it is in an effort to continue in sin.

In the passage that Paul shared about sex in 1 Corinthians 7:1-9, notice that Paul shared about “self control.”

Which means that if you are not married, you must exercise self control. Meaning that you have to control your “urges and impulses.”

How?

Romans 6:12-13 “Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.”

Romans 6:19 “I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.”

When it comes to masturbation, there is no self control. It is lust being fulfilled. Masturbation is a sex act with one person.

You are manually stimulating yourself to ejaculate and to experience an orgasm by yourself. You are “presenting your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness.”

Notice the word “uncleanness.”

Matthew 12:43-45 “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came. ‘And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.”

You won’t believe me so let’s look at the actual Greek word of “unclean and uncleanness.”

Both from Strong’s Concordance.

UNCLEAN

“g0169. ἀκάθαρτος akathartos; from 1 (as a negative particle) and a presumed derivative of 2508 (meaning cleansed); impure (ceremonially, morally (lewd) or specially, (demonic)):— foul, unclean.
AV (30)- unclean 28, foul 2; not cleansed, unclean in a ceremonial sense: that which must be abstained from according to the levitical law in a moral sense: unclean in thought and life.”

Let’s look at the word “uncleanness” in Romans 6:19.

UNCLEANNESS

“g0167. ἀκαθαρσία akatharsia; from 169; impurity (the quality), physically or morally:— uncleanness. AV (10)- uncleanness 10; uncleanness physical in a moral sense: the impurity of lustful, luxurious, profligate living of impure motives.”

So it is clear that the same or similar word and definition is speaking volumes that unclean spirits drive uncleanness operating in the world.

Mark 1:23 “Now there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, saying, “Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are —the Holy One of God!” But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!” And when the unclean spirit had convulsed him and cried out with a loud voice, he came out of him. hen they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, “What is this? What new doctrine is this? For with authority He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.” And immediately His fame spread throughout all the region around Galilee.”

What do unclean spirits do in people?

There is no question in my mind that this passages speaks of people doing unclean things. No question that unclean things has everything to do with sexual immorality.

Look no further than the criminal world with sexual predators on one level. On the other level there are those that do lewd acts at home, strip clubs, sex clubs, and other places where sexual immorality is happening.

Demons on every level are in operation, including masturbation.

Do you mean to tell me that I am “demon possessed” when I masturbate?

When you are dealing with sexual immorality, you are giving yourself over to the fulfilling of the flesh and body. Remember what Paul said.

“…presenting your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness.”

Lawlessness doesn’t come from the Lord. Lawlessness comes from the devil. You have to come out from under the power of God to come under the power of the devil.

Some of you may recall an incident I shared when I was waiting for the next train to Croton Harmon in New York, on the Hudson Line. I was at Tarrytown as the train entered the station and a Black man was on the overpass that leads from Tracks 2 & 4 to Tracks 1 & 3.

He was masturbating.

There was no question that he was possessed.

This is called “exhibitionism.” This is when a person is committing a lewd sexual act in public.

We all know that full possession takes place when you give yourself over to the full array and control of demon power. When it comes to temptation to sin, the temptation comes from the devil as a suggestion. According to James 1:14-15, you fulfill sin. On this level, it is NOT demon possession.

It is obedience to demon power to commit sin. Some will say that they do not understand the difference.

When it comes to committing sin, it all depends on how far you are willing to go. In any level, there is demon power in operation but we all know that there are certain levels that exhibit certain manifestations that clearly indicate demon power.

If you find yourself going deeper into sexual immorality. Another words, doing things that require more “submission,” there is no question that you are entertaining more suggestions to receive a euphoric aspect of sexual fulfillment or satisfaction.

Recently, (December 2015), I was watching the late David Wilkerson who pastored Times Square Church in NYC, minister along the lines of lust, pornography, and perversion.

Not once did he mention the word “masturbation.”

When you are dealing with the area of pornography, masturbation is a part of the process. I am not blaming pastor Wilkerson for not mentioning this aspect because I believe that at the time he shared what he shared, everyone assumed that masturbation was assumed to be a part of the message.

Even today, there are many preachers that only mention the filth of porn but few will mention the act that is always associated with porn. This is where men are true slaves to themselves in masturbation. They can’t free themselves from porn because they are enslaved to masturbation.

They can give up porn like I did, and remember the images so well that buying or viewing porn isn’t necessary. That’s what happened in 2008. I gave up porn but I had porn “in my head” as one pastor said to me.

It would be 2009 that I would give up masturbation for 3.5 years. Then relapse came into my life and that’s when the Lord said to me this year early 2015 that I have to put together everything that I have learned otherwise I am still a hypocrite.

I also had to put in my mind that I grieved and offended God. I also have to remember that at anytime, the Lord could require my soul. Where would it be if sin were in my life at the moment He calls for my soul?

Or if the rapture would take place (I know there may be different beliefs about the rapture so just bear with me please), would I catch the first flight or would I be left behind?

I was unwilling to take that chance and I’ve been fighting ever since to stay clean and pure in His sight. At all times. I had to give up the arguments and reasonings to selfishly justify masturbation. Such arguments, reasoning, and self justification will always lack Scriptural authority.

When I deal with this area of porn, I always state that no one watches porn and not act out sexually in masturbation, adultery, fornication, bisexuality, homosexuality, or bestiality.

It’s all a part of this world of sex outside of the Biblically established pattern of marriage between one man and one woman.

A lot of men and some women will state that regular sex is not enough.

That extra stimulation is needed to obtain satisfaction. But as I have stated before, it is outside the norms of marriage and connected to sexual immorality. That’s why your conscience is bothered because the God that dwells in us is offended.

You can go and sin no more.
