If you do not believe that the Bible is the Word of God, then, you have something more urgent to worry about than masturbation.
There are many who practice sin that believe they are going to get entrance into the kingdom of God. You can’t practice what the Lord detests and assume that you will gain entrance into heaven. Do you honestly believe that you can practice same sex or any sin before the throne of God? Do you think that He would let you into His clean, holy heaven with your perversion?
God is holy. Do you think the unholy is allowed?
Only when the unholy repent and receive Jesus as Lord and Savior, and as a result, practice righteousness (see 1 John 3:1-10).
Then what would be the point of Jesus dying for sin?
Everyone wants to be like a child of God but they want to bring their sins with them.
At the Great White Throne Judgment, there will be no time to argue your point.
You will be judged according to your works and if your name is not found written in the Book of Life, you will be cast into the lake of fire.
However, people are so locked in their position of sin that they cannot see that they are in bondage and will have their lot. A lot of burning for all eternity. Not just for sins but for rejecting the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
You can’t be a minister without the gospel of Jesus Christ.
You can’t have “Rev. or Pastor in front and back of your name and claim to have been called by God, and practice sin. You and your charade is open for all to see as false and fakery.
True hypocrisy knows no shame.
You can’t be a church without the gospel of Jesus Christ.
You can’t have a form of godliness and deny the power of godliness (see 2 Timothy 3:1-5).
You can’t be a believer of Jesus without believing the good news that He died for all your sins, including sexual sins of adultery, fornication (porn), masturbation, homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, bisexuality, and all sexual lewd acts.
You can’t say you know Him and live in sin.
The very thing He died for to set you free.
You can’t practice homosexuality, adultery, fornication (porn), masturbation, incest, bisexuality, bestiality and be a child of God.
Light cannot fellowship with darkness.
You cannot be the temple of God and have idols. One side of the earth is dark and the other side of the earth has light.
You cannot have darkness and light on the same side of the earth.
You cannot be in complete light and be in complete darkness at the same time.
You cannot be Jesus and the devil at the same time.
You cannot be a child of God and a child of the devil at the same time.
Yet, that’s what LGBT people that claim to be believers want you to believe.
But isn’t it strange that they want certain elements from the light (marriage) to legitimize same sex union?
Isn’t it strange that they want to borrow children to have a family to look legitimate?
How do you have children?
Naturally have children?
You must go back to the original design of sex of the “one flesh” principle of Genesis 2:21-25.
Children brings legitimacy to a marriage.
Children are born from the womb of a woman after natural conception takes place after sex. The one flesh principal of Genesis 2:21-25.
Men do not have a vagina, ovaries, eggs, birth canal, or a womb. The apparent lack of this equipment makes a man incapable of giving birth. That job is left to….the woman.
Women are incapable to inseminate. They do not have a penis and they are ill-equipped to ejaculate sperm.
This job of insemination by natural means is left up to….the man.
Natural conception requires sex (one flesh principle), an egg from the female, and a sperm from the male.
LGBT people, how did you get here? IT WASN’T MOMMY HAVING SEX WITH MOMMY. IT WASN’T DADDY HAVING SEX WITH DADDY, either.
Mommy had sex with daddy and by the one flesh principle of Genesis 2:21-25, you came out of your mother’s womb.
I know, too much wisdom from God to accept.
Without artificial insemination, adoption, or surrogacy, let’s see if male and male can have children. Let’s see if female and female could have children.
How can LGBT bring legitimacy to same sex unions?
They can’t naturally bring legitimacy to a union.
So what is left?
Artificial insemination, adoption, surrogacy.
For husband and wife, not a bad option when they are unable to naturally conceive to have children.
For same sex, it’s a hijacking of the term family in an attempt to legitimize sin.
When you tell them it is dark, they tell you it’s light.
When you tell them that you are in the light, LGBT tells you that you are in darkness.
They want light while they tell you that you are in darkness.
You can’t say that you know Him and live a sinful lifestyle that He died a horrible death for. But He just didn’t die. He was resurrected in power so that man would be free from the power, shame, and guilt of sin.
True freedom is when you walk free from the power of sin, alive unto God, dead to sin (see Romans 6).
In the book of Genesis, the six chapter, the imagination of man became so intense that the people were engrossed in all sorts of perversion, that the Lord destroyed the inhabitants of the earth (humans and animals) with a flood.
When the city of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of perverseness, some of the surrounding cities were destroyed as well, with the exception of the city Lot chose to enter after the destruction.
Perversion was the reason for the destruction.
In the book of Luke chapter 17, the Lord Jesus gave us a clear sign of the end times. The days of Noah and the days of Lot.
The events of Noah and Lot’s days is equivalent to the days we are experiencing.
Sexual perversion is prevalent in and outside the church.
2 Peter 3:1-9 issues this warning.
“Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 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.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”
Many of you do not honestly believe that the Lord is going to bring judgment.
When you practice perversion, it is clear that you have taken the position to be an enemy of God.
Truly, you have something to fear and worry about.
If you practice perversion, you will be judged.
If you repent, you will not be judged.
Just note that you’ve been warned.
As you can see in the comments from part one that a cord has been struck.
Many of you are considering what you have been doing as far as masturbation is concerned. In fact, I believe that many of you were at or approaching a level of hopelessness and found something in what was said to give you hope to quit in forever repentance, to be forever free in Jesus.
In other places on many websites, including BTR (BlogTalkRadio, Secret Sexual Sins downloaded from iTunes), and a couple of years ago, on Amazon.com about my book on Secret Sexual Sins, I was ridiculed.
Years ago I read an article about pastors that helped me not to be intimidated and quit. Pastors must have the love of God and a sense of humor. Pastors must know God and the Bible they live and preach from, and pastors must have thick skin of a rhinoceros.
Even the Lord Jesus was accused of having a demon (see John 7:20) because they questioned His authority, and where did His authority came from.
When it comes to ministering the Word of God on the subject of masturbation, if deliverance is firmly in place and you have, by His grace, successfully defeated porn and masturbation, it is clear that as time progress and your deliverance is sticking, you become an authority on deliverance from occasional or chronic masturbation and porn.
In other words, you fully learned to trust in Jesus and His Word, the sufficient grace of God, and the power of the Holy Spirit to keep you from using your members (self hands on penis-clitoris) as instruments of unrighteousness. Thus, authority, time tested, grace of God solidified, is firmly entrenched and irrevocably established.
Ridicule is an attempt to intimidate you to stop. To move you from faith to fear. To defeat the seed of the Word of God in you. To lower your esteem in God. To get you to surrender and return to the place of darkness. To chase you from God’s stronghold back to the house of bondage; from Jerusalem back to Egypt.
These intimidating elements will be relentless because when truth hits the hearts of men and women bound in sexual immorality, Acts 19 is the result. Paul’s message of the gospel of Jesus turned an entire city around from demon worship associated with the sex trade to Jesus. Diana of the Ephesians had connections to Ashtoreth idols of sexual immorality and sensuality, and they were delivered. Before the deliverance at Ephesus took place, a major city riot ensued.
The riot was an attempt by the devil to intimidate Paul and the early believers from sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in a sexual immorality filled city. Ephesus is a sea side port of commerce and there is no doubt that prostitution was part of the business because of its connection to idolatry and sorcery.
Usually, when you throw a rock in a pack of dogs, the one that gets hit is the one that hollers. When truth is brought to bear against people intending to live in sin, an attack and ridicule is coming. I must say that you can always tell the difference between dogs and those seeking help and deliverance when you read their comments.
What’s apparent is that reasoning sounds so good when you are in sin and someone brings truth against such reasoning. The indefensible position of sin will always have sugary sound bites of practiced or rehearsed reasoning that defy the Word of God.
And all human reasoning will lack the rightly divided Word of truth.
Sin doesn’t have legs to stand on because sin was crucified in the flesh of Jesus, and there is nothing in the Scriptures that authorizes or sympathize with sin.
When comparing comments, always note what Scripture was used to support a point. That’s the common denominator that either establishes truth and or rebukes the false. Where there is a lack of contextual Scriptural use, points of human reasoning become humanistic/demonically inspired rhetoric, lacking truth, or there will be hidden elements of truth to veil the poison.
Such rhetoric is deceptive reasoning and gives incredible insight as to why a person remains in sexual immorality bondage.
One example is that there is no Scripture that says “Thou shalt not masturbate.” But there is also no Scripture that says, “Thou shalt masturbate.”
We all know that sexual immorality is a sex act imagined and invented by unregenerate man or carnal Christians, done apart from God’s established Word that authorizes sex.
It’s called perversion.
Here’s perversion in it’s rawest forms.
(DISCRETION IS ADVISED)
When a man sticks his penis in the anus (male or female), that’s incompatible. It’s perversion and abominable. When a man or woman sucks a penis, that’s incompatible. It’s perversion and abominable.
When a man uses his hand to pretend that he is inside a vagina, mouth, or anus (male or female), that’s incompatible. It’s perversion and abominable.
When a man sticks his penis in any animal or any other material (sex toys, rubber dolls, etc.), that’s incompatible. It’s perversion and abominable.
When a woman sucks or is penetrated by an animal, that’s incompatible. It’s perversion and abominable.
When a man sticks his penis in his wife’s vagina, that’s compatible. It’s not perversion and it’s not abominable unless it is fornication or adultery (see Hebrews 13:4).
When people are called perverts, the LGBT community calls it hate language. What does the dictionary say as a clear definition of a pervert?
“It is a person whose behavior deviates from what is acceptable especially from sexual behavior.”
Normal sexual behavior is Biblically defined by Almighty God, not sinner/demonically defined. The rights of morality is owned by the Creator (see Isaiah 45:9-10). Your death and judgment cannot and will not ever be in your control. Ever!
So, when truth comes, and a person is either offended or they seek help, and deliverance.
But perverted people, fight against the truth with their own reasoning. To get you to change so that the heat of truth would diminish or be extinguished altogether.
The Bible called them dogs (see Philippians 3:2 and Revelations 22:15).
What do dogs do?
They bark in attempt to intimidate.
Therefore, human reasoning and ridiculing truth is part of the bark of intimidation.
So, would it be safe to ignore the bark? No. Because if you do not address their vain attempt to justify sin, you are leaving a door wide open for them to keep many from seeing the truth. The truth must come out in order for people to have a chance to be free of sin before judgment, called the wrath of God, falls. Silence is what the devil wants. If lying and falsity isn’t challenged with the Word of truth, the lie, to them becomes truth.
There is a difference between attempting to get answers and defending baseless reasoning that lack coherent, backed by harmonious, contextual teaching in the Word of God.
People (dogs) pride themselves in speaking against the truth because when you are trapped in sin, the only reasons for remaining in an opened prison cell is the pleasure of sin and suppression of truth. Jesus opened every man’s prison cell. Sinful man could walk free at any time. Many refuse to walk out to trust the Savior.
So, is this reverse intimation? Calling people dogs? No. God never intimidates. God always promises. And when people are the enemy of God and His Word, He promises one thing. Judgment, unless there is repentance before death because there is no repentance after death.
Judgment is next after death.
The big lying dog, called the devil, brings reasonings to keep you doing what you like to do. Masturbate. He keeps lying to you that if you leave, you will never be satisfied with Jesus. If you walk with Jesus, you can no longer have this kind of pleasure. If you stop masturbating, what will you do to keep yourself from this pleasure of all pleasures?
The goal is not to hit just to be hitting. The goal is not even to bring a debate about masturbation. If you believe that the Bible is the Word of God, then the Word is not going to lead you astray.
The Word will always lead you into truth, when the Word is rightly divided.
The goal is to get you to understand that Jesus is all you need and you do not have to be in bondage to stroking yourself in occasional or chronic masturbation. True healthy sex is between husband and wife. False, unhealthy sex is masturbation, prostitution, homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, and bestiality. It’s all about following God’s true design or the devil’s perverted and distorted concept of fantasy island.
What masturbation is all about is the improper use of the penis.
What masturbation is about is committing a lewd, sinful sex act in violation of God’s original design and intent of the part He created for man. When there is a willful act to abuse (abnormally use) the male or female anatomy for sinful pleasures, there must be a return to healthy, authorized use of the male and female anatomy.
