INTRODUCTION

ACCOUNTABILITY-(of a person, organization, or institution) required or expected to justify actions or decisions; responsible.

A word that many Christians and those in the ministry are afraid of.

Sexual immorality is a serious problem in the lives of many Christian leaders and Christians. The place where many fear accountability is in the area of sex. Sexual accountability must never be a solo act. Accountability requires “other eyes” on your life. As Dr. Mark Laaser pointed out, ‘Accountability must never be done alone. It must be done as a group.’

In many men’s meetings in Christian circles, there is a lack of consistent Christian accountability in the area of sex. We wonder why the church is struggling to maintain morals. We wonder why spouses have trouble in their homes. As the late Dr. Ed Cole pointed out, you do not have to look far. Money, Communication, and Sex.

When men fail to be accountable, it is very easy to hide sexual immorality. Many are afraid of meaningful accountability because they want to keep their sin hidden in their lives. Others are afraid because they believe they are going to fall anyway and provide a self determining response that such accountability is useless.

I falsely declared to myself that accountability is another hopeless approach to keep myself free of sexual sins. I determined that I made this excuse to continue in sin that grace may abound. Accountability is about pulling back the covers of our lives where a “false sense” of security is established.

Vulnerability in this area of Secret Sexual Sins is not about protecting where I am hurting. It is about protecting my self prescribed system to “pharmaceutically” heal myself. In other words, I am my own “physician” and I can heal myself. I use sexual immorality as a “medicinal property” to heal my wounded soul.

Sexual immorality is sexual witchcraft cloaked in secrecy. As long as it’s a secret, nobody knows but somebody does know. God, the angels, the devil, you, and those around you that are hurt by your clandestine actions.

I concluded that as a pastor, I don’t trust me. It is very easy for me to hide. To have “other eyes” on my life require that I give up my right to privacy in the sense that as a Christian leader, I am to be ‘above reproach.’ 

While I was in Secret Sexual Sins of pornography and self gratification, commonly called masturbation, I was a reproach to God, my wife, my daughter, the people entrusted into our care at Prevailing Word Ministries, and my peers in the ministry.

Since the Lord commanded me to “Come Clean, or be exposed,” my goal is to establish “above reproach” from the point of ‘forever repentance.’

This is accomplished in measurable accountability, transparency, and the grace of God.

All across the United States, the Lord is amplifying His voice in Ephesians 5:26-27. We are hearing Him loud and clear. Sexual Sins is MOAB in the church. The Mother of All Battles. The church is stuck in the plains of Moab due to sexual immorality. We have allowed the doctrines of Balaam, the Nicolatians, and Jezebel to sit comfortably in the church. It is time to cast these devils out and establish meaningful accountability in a non condemning manner.

As I was studying courses on Healthy Sexuality and Treating Sexual Addiction from Light University, I came across several terms that were consistently trumpeted. One term is ‘group accountability.’ If men and women are going to come out of Secret Sexual Sins, there has to be a level of transparent accountability within the frame work of a group setting.

The word ‘safe’ is another term that came across. Many return to hiding because they do not feel safe to share their dark world. Finally, another word that came to mind was ‘trust.’ We do not trust God, His Word, and those brothers and sisters sent by God to help us to escape and not to hurt us.

We have experienced many hurts, pains, and wounds, and we do not want to be wounded again. Then there are those that just love to sin. This is at the top of the list, sin is sin no matter which way you look at it. Wounds of the soul is no excuse to commit sin.

When the Lord asked Cain where his brother was, Cain’s response was out of arrogance and pride. He said, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Cain’s callous response is the reason for this manual. We have not been good stewards in this area.

We’ve permitted our brothers to die, sometimes at our own hands. Then there are those of you that reject a brother that goes out of their way to guard your life from destruction. From a spiritual perspective, the Lord told me to turn the evil that Cain did to his brother and become what Cain failed to do.

In the Body of Christ, and at Prevailing Word Ministries, we are our brother’s guard. We have each other’s back. No holds barred. That’s what the word ‘keeper’ in Hebrew means. We guard each other from falling into sin. Accountability is only as good as a person wants it.

Accountability never works when a person is forced to become accountable. For accountability to work, you must have a willing heart with an unquenchable desire to please God. The level of accountability is a high standard to maintain if we are going to keep each other from the traps of the devil.

You are ready! You are up to the task! This manual is for you! You can do it!

Therefore, a unified approach to establish meaningful accountability in a non condemning way is an actionable Biblical solution to a serious but solvable problem.

What did you do to overcome or fail?

I prayed and read the Scriptures. I called my accountability brothers for prayer and support.

What were your struggles of the day or night that you contended with?

During the day, the newspapers had pictures that I tried not to look at. When I got home, those images kept coming up in my mind. I cast those images down and captivated every thought to the obedience of Christ.

What plan of attack to succeed will you employ to not fall into sin today?

I will not read the newspapers any more because the devil uses it to set the trap for me to sin.

If you didn’t fall into sexual sins, did you praise God for the victory?

Father, because I am in You and You are in me because I am born of God, You have given me the ability to keep myself. As long as I am in You, and I keep myself, the wicked one cannot touch me. I look to you and Your strength to keep me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Evening Bedtime Out Loud Prevailing Prayer & Scripture:

Actual Time Before Bed:

Father, tonight, I set my heart and mind on the things of the Spirit. I am aware of my fleshly faculties and I govern them in the name of Jesus. My cravings, my desires, my longings. I bring them to the place of the crucifix to die. For as in Paul, “I die daily.’ In Christ, I live. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Night Time Meditation Scripture:

Romans 8:5-8 (NKJ)

For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of

the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the

Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is

life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God;

for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.

So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

DAILY NOTES

DAY 60: EMPLOYMENT OF TACTICS:

At the point of temptation, it may be necessary to call someone to talk about your struggles. This employment tactic is highly successful in guarding against sin in your life. Another tactic is to discuss with others your successes and failures. By doing this, you keep yourself and it will help you to keep the enemy from securing any demonic strongholds in your life. When the temptation is strong at night or early in the morning, just go to the Evening Prayer and Meditation Scripture to begin the path to overcoming temptation for that specific night. Faith without corresponding action is dead. When you are alone at night or in the morning, turn on some praise and worship music to distract the mind from thinking ungodly, sensual thoughts. By creating and firmly establishing this habit, your mind is retrained to think godly thoughts. Especially in the middle of the night where sexual temptation is at its peak. You must employ every strategy to overcome the wicked one.

DAY 59: GUARDING AGAINST RELAPSE:

No one plans to fail but if you fail to plan against relapse, it’s an open invitation given to the devil to bring any temptation against you. You must have a plan of attack. The greatest fear for any man is to say that you are not going to sin against God again. Then, the moment of truth comes. What I have done to overcome in these moments is remember how God’s grace and mercy was there for me. While He understands our makeup, I understand that to sin against Him only brings sorrow to His heart. When we forget that we hurt the Lord when we sin, it is very easy to sin. This is how we suppress the truth. Instead we need to suppress our need for false intimacy by seeking the face of God in spirit and in true intimacy, through prayer and fasting. As you put distance from the last time you repented, your will to remain victorious will be challenged again, and again, but as you submit to God and resist the devil, he will flee from you every time. Instead of falling into temptation, I fall in love with God, His Word, His grace, and His power. It is there that my victory in Christ is secured.

DAY 58: YOU MUST STAY FOCUSED:

The enemy, your mind, and your flesh is always looking for an opportunity to look for a loophole. Sin is very easy to fall into when you are not paying attention to what is going on around you. The Lord Jesus said that you will not get robbed if you are watching out for the thief. At the same time, you cannot become your own enemy. At this point in the game, your flesh is looking for a way to gratify itself. You must submit to God with wholehearted devotion. Do not give in because you have a lot to lose and everything to gain in Christ. To stay focused requires that you think on other things than sex and self sex. When your mind is preoccupied with nothing but sex, it is very easy to give in. Fill your mind with God and His Word. It’s not the sprinter that wins a marathon. Running a marathon requires you to set a pace that will win the race. You must finish the course that is set before you. So do not allow yourself to be distracted. Do not lose focus. Ask the Savior to help you. Comfort strengthen and keep you. He is willing to help you. He will carry you through.

DAY 57: UNDERSTANDING TEMPTATION:

Temptation. It’s just an offer, but the offer must be powerful enough to lure you out from your place of comfort, safety, and defense. When it comes to any offer from the devil, there is nothing safe. The Lord Jesus tells us exact the reason that the devil comes. To steal, kill, and to destroy. He is not coming to give you a pat on the back. He is not coming to see if he could help you out. His only desire is to destroy your life and if he is successful, trick you into giving up your salvation so you can spend eternity in the lake of fire forever. That’s his only goal. So to break free from sexual immorality is a big deal. Therefore, as you gain strength in the Lord and understand temptation, you are learning how to maintain your walk in the Lord. Every day that you turn down his offer, you are gaining strength, power, and victory over the devil through Jesus Christ our Lord. Remember, temptation is just an offer. Every time temptation comes, it’s just another opportunity to turn it down.

DAY 56: NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE ENEMY:

One of the most important things that you must remember is that after racking up a string of victories, the enemy is waiting for you to get “haughty.’ We feel good about ourselves. It feels like we think we have this thing licked. We “brag” in front of our brothers and sisters that still may be struggling with their flesh. This is the time to remember that, “Pride goes before destruction, haughtiness before the fall.” While you are to be commended for the string of victories, you must remember that you didn’t do it by yourself. The Lord and many, many prayers undergirded your success. Now it is time to watch because this is what the enemy is looking for. This is how he sets us up for the fall. Remember, he is always looking for your moment of weakness. That’s all it takes. One moment. So be careful. Walk in humility, and avoid humiliation.

DAY 55: AVOID EATING VOMIT:

As a young boy, l looked across the street and observed a stray dog walking about rather strangely. As it stopped, I observed its stomach contracting. I knew what was next. Up came his food. Obviously, whatever the dog ate, its stomach didn’t agree with it. Vomiting is a violent act of the stomach to discharge or eject non-agreeable food. I figured that the dog would walk away and find something else to eat. It turned around, sniffed its upchuck and began licking it up like it was a good hot meal. The sad part was that the dog looked like it was enjoying the same meal. Returning to the place of sin is just like that. You do not care why it came out of your stomach. You just eat it. That’s what I did for 33 years. Eat my own vomit of sin. You do not have to do this. As long as you return to commit sin, you fail to understand that you are a sick dog. Sin will never agree with the Word and the Spirit of God in you. When you vomit the sin of porn and masturbation, do not return to eat it again. The sin that is vomited out must stay out. Come Clean, Stay Clean.

DAY 54: WORSHIPPING GOD WHEN YOU ARE ABOUT TO SIN:

This is what the enemy doesn’t expect. When you catch yourself from sinning and you begin to worship God. There would be times that I would “find” my hands doing what I shouldn’t be doing. That’s right. Masturbating. All of a sudden, God speaks to me and calls me to repentance, cleansing, and worship Him. For years, I didn’t realize that the Lord was showing me a way to escape false intimacy and replace it with true intimacy, or when the Spirit of God tells you to get up, and get out of that bed before “sin when it is finished, brings forth death.’ I didn’t know that my spiritual yearning for God was so connected to what was going on in my soul. Because my brain was “highjacked” with porn, fantasy, false intimacy, I was completely fooled. My body and mind replaced the yearning in my heart for God. I did two things. One, using medicinal properties to heal my wounded, lonely, UN-affirmed soul, and two, worshipping myself. I was a “pharmacist,’ conjuring up a spell of sex to satisfy a chemical dependent fix to make me feel better or reward myself. A bonafide sex addict. When you are a lover of yourself, you are worshipping yourself. When you masturbate, you are worshipping you. The Bible is very clear. “You shall have no other gods before Me.’ So disengage with yourself and acquaint now thyself with God.

DAY 53: WORSHIPPING GOD WHEN YOU ARE ABOUT TO SIN (CONT’):

Perhaps you were struggling and maybe you’ve found a way to release sexual tension a different way other than masturbation, but the guilt is still the same. It’s time to move from remorse to repentance. It’s time to dethrone yourself and enthrone God. One of the most important things that you need to do is get off of the throne. You ran your life the way you saw fit but the results weren’t good. The results were dismal, to say the least. It is time to let God assume the throne of your heart. Worship is not just the lifting up of the hands. Worship is who we are. When we please God, it’s worship. When we rise in the morning, it’s worship of Almighty God. We were created for His pleasure, not for our pleasure. Do not get me wrong. The Lord created all things for us to richly enjoy. It is when we seek the pleasures of this world apart from God that it turns into the worship of ourselves and other things. As a new creature in Christ, new creations do not do old tricks. When we are in Christ, everything that we do reflects our worship of the Father in spirit and in truth. We cannot worship in spirit and truth when we are in sin. When we are in sin, we are worshipping the devil. We may not be lifting our hands to the devil but when we use our hands or our sexual organs in sin, it is worship of the devil and the old nature.

DAY 52: WHY 60 DAYS?

So far, you should have lived free from sin the past 10 days or more. If so, give God praise right now! According to one source, it takes 6 months to make a habit and six months to break one. With pornography and self gratification, commonly called masturbation, we see that these become engrained habits of compulsion. According to Dr. Struthers, porn “highjacks” the brain. You are only imagining that you are there with that sex object (male or female). In that fantasy, you are masturbating or acting out in a sexual manner. When you look for additional porn, it’s because it increases the excitement but the end is always the same. When you had enough of fantasy, you cross over into prostitution and affairs. This is still level one sexual addiction. It is the peak of level one sex addiction. The first two months is the most difficult months to deal a death blow to sexual addiction. That’s because it is still “fresh in your flesh.’ To break the stronghold, time must be established where no sex with yourself or with another person breaks the cycle established by compulsion. Once 60 days is completed, relational intimacy with God should be reestablished and then, if you are married, you must work on saving, healing, and restoring your marriage. This allows for you to reestablish healthy sexual attitudes and behaviors by God grace and power.

DAY 51: JUST BE STILL:

At this stage of the game, ‘be still’ is not just a spiritual cliche. During the early mornings and at night would be the greatest battles of my life. Sexual sin would meet me every night. Why? When you feed on the world and not on the Word, it is very easy to fall into sin. So at night, when I needed to relieve stress, instead of looking to the Lord, I looked to self sex to release the tension of the day. Yes, even while I was married. Again, when you do not want the relational part of marriage, night time would be the perfect place to engage in sinful activity. The Lord had to really teach me how to be still before Him and trust Him that He would bring peace to my situations when I need Him to. So far, since December 3, 2009, He never came short of His Word. He always brings the peace that I needed. “Be still” is a command, not an elective, but in that command is the divine ability to be in subjection to the Holy Spirit. That means that I give myself entirely over to the Word of God and the Holy Spirit. Masturbation was my way of calming and soothing my nerves. I was a “Pharmacist.’ The only catch was that it is sin. So at night, just lay there, and be still. Trust the Lord to help you to not fall into the sin of self sex. Believe me, it is not easy, but when you realize the pressure that the Lord Jesus was under, not once did He “act out” in selfishness and masturbated. Not once.

DAY 50: COMPULSIVE HABITS AND ADDICTIONS:

There are many schools of thought about compulsive habits and addictions. Some say, ‘Once and addict, always an addict.’ Not if you are in Christ. ‘He whom the Son sets free is free indeed.’ An addict is claiming bondage. The word ‘addict,’ in, and of itself, could be a powerful reminder that you will never be free. However, in Christ, we are free from every enslaving yoke of sin. When you cannot stop, it is compulsive. In other words, when you cannot completely subdue urges and impulses, also known as signals, they become compulsive habits. A habit is trained into the behavioral patterns of a person until the behavior is changed (born again) and the cycle is broken. However, when a bad cycle is broken, it must be replaced with a new cycle. Each devotional is designed to establish a devotional routine. As a disciple of Christ, it is necessary to establish a solid routine or disciplines to be successful in keeping secret sexual sins out of your life. This is accomplished by implementing, incorporating, and applying the Word. Day and night time devotions is set up for that purpose. The middle of the day will be your big battle. By now, you should have come up with a way to stay in the presence of God during the time in between your morning and evening devotion. If you haven’t, don’t get down on yourself. God will help you develop a plan.

DAY 49: COMPREHENSIVE ESCAPE PLAN:

The Bible teaches that we should “make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lust.’ To make provision means to think before or in advance. So when we allow our desires to drive the way we think, we plan to sin. The Spirit of God is always ready, willing, and able to help you make provision to fulfill righteousness. That’s why it is important to establish provisions to fulfill righteousness on a moment by moment basis. You cannot afford to let your old habits dictate and rule what you do in your life any more. The Holy Spirit will always show you the way of escape every time. The key is to grasp mentally every plan that the Spirit of God gives you to escape. That’s what comprehensive means. You fully grasp the plan of God and execute that plan no matter the cost. You immediately implement that plan regardless of the cost. The cost you must never be willing to pay is the cost to displease the Lord to sin against Him again. While working out in my basement, I observe two spiders. One was on the attack, the other was defending its territory. The attacking spider was caught in the web of the defending spider. It look like it was over for the attacking spider but for some reason, it kept on fighting. The defending spider backed off from the attack. The attacking spider finally freed itself. It escaped, I thought, certain death. You can do the same!

DAY 48: THE WEB OF SECRET SEXUAL SINS:

For years, I thought I never could be free. When I was born again, I thought that I could be free from sexual sins. This would be in my late teenage years. I never found freedom. I was caught between two things. The pleasure and the pain. It felt good but it felt bad. One of the things that enslave a person to the addiction of self sex is the pleasure, however, after the pleasure, the let down, and the pain of failure overwhelmed me. Like that attacking spider, I thought I could never break free, but I kept on fighting. Then, one day, the Lord gave me the ability to discipline my flesh (urges and impulses). Then he gave me understanding about my past. Dopamine is a chemical that rewards the body after sex. It is also reminder for sexual addicts what to come back to when you want to feel good after a bad day. When sin is finished, it brings forth death. Death is a separation from life. Sin is separation from God. Jesus fought for us. He became sin for us although He never committed sin that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. When Christ died, we died. When Christ was buried, we were buried. When Christ was raised from the dead, we were raised. Even while we were dead in trespasses and sins, He made us alive together with Christ. While caught in the spider’s web, we were made free. Did you get it? So rejoice today and tonight, for we are free.

DAY 47: THE PLANS OF THE WICKED ONE:

Until now, we’ve concentrated so much on what you must do to avoid secret sexual sins. This must be the focus because we know that the enemy is defeated according to Colossians 2:15, 1 John 3:8. I must warn you. The enemy already planned a series of attacks. The images that you used to look at are history. The sins of the flesh that is prepared for you is beyond your imagination. Therefore, you must cut everything off. Up to this point, you probably watched a few things in the media, the Internet, the cell phones, and they are “pulling” on your flesh and mind. It is time to go extreme radical with your deliverance. Newspapers, magazines, television, cable, satellite, and anything that you connected with that became a part of your flesh provisions must be cut off or they become a springboard to relapse. Remember, Jesus is Lord of all or He is Lord of none. Jesus said, “But why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord’ and not do the things which I say? The devil uses sex laced commercials, soft and hard porn in PG-13, R, MA, and NC-17 rated movies, cheerleaders at the sports games, Miss America pageant, primetime TV shows. If you are not willing to cut these off, you will experience a relapse. It’s not a bad confession. Relapse is a matter of time if you are not serious. Remember, Jesus said, “The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.’

DAY 46: THE BATTLE OF THE MIND AND FLESH:

Everyday, you are engaged in a battle. The soul and the flesh. They ‘tag team’ against your recreated human spirit and the Holy Spirit within you. They war against the Word of God within you. Everyday, the urges and impulses cry out for attention but just like Paul, ‘I beat my body and bring it into subjection.’ In other words, you strong arm your flesh and tell it what to do and what not to do. To please the Father, you must muster the strength of God within you to master the mind and flesh. Everyday, my eyes want to wander. Everyday my flesh wants to satisfy itself. Everyday my mind and flesh calls out, but I call out unto God. I pray and get a hold of the Word of God. No day is the same. Some days, it’s intense. Other days it’s not as bad. The mind is already burned with images from past viewings of porn. It has to be washed out by the water of the Word. To win the battle of the mind and flesh, there must be a constant commitment to soak in the Word of God and be cleansed from the filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. Make a commitment to never turn your back again on God. A commitment to demand the flesh to live holy before God. A commitment to be faithful to God. When you are engaged in a fierce battle, just know that the Holy Spirit is there to help you every step of the way.

DAY 45: HIDDEN SECRETS:

Sometimes, people are sexually abused, molested, or exposed to sexual activity at an early age. Perhaps you may have been raped or introduced to sex by a person you trusted such as a pastor, teacher, or someone of age and authority. The earliest age a child is exposed to porn is age 11, however, it’s been revised to 8 years of age by unsupervised children. These ungodly episodes of abuse or accidental access are potential “sleeper cells” that come alive and become a problem in a person’s life. Many live dual lives. They look normal on the outside but on the inside, a hidden secret is raging within them. You cannot tell if there is something wrong with them because they mask the shame of it so well. Hidden as silent tears. Hidden under layers is a secured compartment of sexual abuse. It will take prayer, the Word of God, and perhaps, pastoral or professional Christian counseling to get to the core of a person’s sexual compartment to bring healing and restoration. Sometimes, a marriage is faced with these issues unawares. They wonder why the spouse is not sexually responsive. If this area hasn’t been delicately uncovered, it may continue to be a major obstacle to healing. It may be an obstacle to having a healthy sexual relationship with your spouse. If this is the case, I strongly recommend you seek professional help.

DAY 44: FORGIVENESS:

Sometimes, the trauma we experience are so painful that we look for ways to be a physician to ourselves. We act as a ‘pharmacist’ to heal ourselves. Some of the worse drug addictions occur at the hands of those charged with conjuring up medicine. That’s right. The corner pharmacist. They have ready access to all sorts of drugs. At any time they can ‘heal’ themselves. Yes, the similarities are there. When life hurts so much. When people do so much harm to us, we look for ways to escape. Ah! Sexual Immorality! God forbid! There is always a downside when it comes to sin. It’s a violation against the known will of God. Forgiving others of the wrong that they committed against you is God’s way for humans to release hurts and wounds experienced during our day to day relationships. Especially in the marital relationship. Instead of looking to forgive, you hold bitterness, grudges, and offenses committed against you. Learn how to forgive and release. You may never forget sins like God does. When God forgives, He remembers our iniquities no more. When we ask for forgiveness, He grants it and then He purposely forgets it. By His grace, we are able to put it behind us and never permit it to become a ‘trigger mechanism” to use it as an excuse to commit sexual sins. Learn to forgive and move on.

DAY 43: PRIDE AND ARROGANCE:

There are three things that are in the world. Number one, the lusts of the flesh, number two, the lusts of the eyes, and number three, the pride of life. This list is recorded in 1 John 2:16. These thing is not of the Father but is of the world. Pride gives us the sense that you can get away with sinning with impunity or without penalty. Ecclesiastes 8:10-13 speaks of a person that is bent on committing evil because the person committing the sin never receives judgment, or so it seems. Again, and again, a person commits sin but notice what the Preacher said, ‘Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed SPEEDILY.’ This is what was happening in my life. Time, and again, I sinned without receiving judgment but I knew that one day it would come. The form of judgment is a mystery until it happens. The Lord Jesus said in the Matthew 21 and verse 44, ‘and whoever falls on the stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it, [the stone] will grind him to powder.’ Judgment could come in a number of ways but the Lord is always merciful, gracious, and kind. This is where tempting fate must come to a conclusion. In pride and arrogance, we blind ourselves. We think that it will happen to someone else until it happens to us. Grace and mercy does have a ‘sell by’ date. It doesn’t give us the right to abuse His grace and mercy.

DAY 42: SIGHT ADULTERY/PHYSICAL ADULTERY

The Lord Jesus mentioned that if we look upon a woman to lust after her, we have committed adultery with her in our hearts. Integrity begins with how we discipline our eyes and our hands. When the urges and impulses rise, we have to come “boldly before the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” from the Holy Spirit. Remember, the Lord Jesus did the same thing every day. He was “tempted in all points, yet without sinning.” Pictures, images, or who we see in the street can be filed later to masturbate off of. These thoughts must be cleansed from our mind. While it is possible to recall them, we choose not to because we desire to possess and secure the mind of Christ in us. Then the “acting out” can escalate into physical adultery or fornication. Walking in integrity demands a moral conviction that transcends fulfilling the desires of the flesh and mind. Walking in integrity demands that we subdue and have dominion over every thought. Casting down every imagination or reasoning to commit sin, and bring them into the captivity of Christ. Why do we bring them into the captivity of Christ? Because Christ learned obedience and mastered His flesh. He is the only one that is capable of taking these thoughts from you and then when you ask Him, He empowers you to think His graced thoughts.

DAY 41: WHAT YOU SHOULD BE FEELING

By now, you should be in a solid routine of a new “ritual” of righteousness. You probably were in a constant cycle of thoughts, fantasies, and sexual immoral rituals in preparation to sin sexually, act out, or masturbated, or had a sex partner, felt shame as you gratified yourself, and then suppress any guilt or remorse. Just to start this cycle again. At this point, if it hasn’t happened already, your flesh and mind is crying out for gratification. For singles, it is difficult. For married men or women, it is difficult to because you enjoyed both worlds. When it comes to pleasing the Lord in every way, you must institute new rituals to replace the old rituals. The Lord Jesus explained as a very powerful revelation that when unclean spirits are cast out they dwell in dry places. Then they seek to return to the place where they were cast out. The Lord revealed that when they return, they bring seven more unclean spirits, and the state of that person is worse than the first. When a person first cuts off porn and masturbation, the first few days, you feel a sense of accomplishment. However, the one thing that you probably weren’t prepared for is that once you stopped, the urges and impulses returned. That’s why it is important that you establish and maintain this godly habit of a ritual of righteousness to replace the ritual of sexual perversion. Moment by moment. Forever.

DAY 40: ESTABLISHING THE SILENCE OF YOUR ENEMIES:

The enemy is having a fit. He doesn’t know what to do because you turned your back on secret sexual sins. However, be careful. The enemy still has an arsenal of tricks that he is planning to use to trip you up but no weapon formed against you shall prosper. The Lord gave you a tremendous victory. Victory over the damaging affects of porn and the victory over the urges and impulses of your flesh. I encourage you to keep going. Do not look back. Do not fear relapse. The fear that you are feeling is the fear of the enemy. He is terrified that you are now a free person in Christ. Poised to free others. You are establishing the silence of the devil and his cohorts, in the name of Jesus. When this is done, when you reach the conclusion of these lessons and accountability is maintained, you will have a testimony. Rejoice! Because you are getting stronger in the Lord and in the power of His might!

DAY 39: WORTHY OF HIS CARE

Sometimes, you wonder why the Lord would take the time to care about you. Especially after sinning against Him. One of the things that you need to understand is that God loved you no matter how much sin is in your life. You are His highest prize and possession. You and I are not worthy or deserving of it but because He loves you so much, you can’t help but be thankful. Paul shared that nothing could separate us from the love of God in Christ our Lord. Take refuge in this. Sexual immorality isn’t powerful enough to keep you separated from the Father. Take solace in the fact that though sin could have taken you to places where there is no hope, God reached out to you to set you free. You are worth every drop of blood that Jesus shed for you because He loves you. Never forget this. Never!

DAY 37: DON’T LET THE LITTLE THINGS SLIP BY:

In this Mother Of All Battles, we must never let the small things slip by us. The little observations are stepping stones to blatant observations. A newspaper clipping. The magazine rack at the grocery store or supermarkets. A beautiful young girl or a masculine man walks by us and we slip a peak. Even if it doesn’t mean much, it does to the mind and flesh. The mind of a man or woman acts faster than you think. In less than an instant, the image is already filed for later. That’s why we must vigorously act against that image before it has a chance to develop into a stronghold. The devil doesn’t build strongholds. He introduce thoughts and reasonings. If we entertain them long enough, they become strongholds by our hands. In rebellion, we erect these strongholds. A stronghold is just that. We hold on strongly to a reasoning, argument, act or acts of rebellion, or anything that our mind and flesh desires. We fight to keep sexual sins by developing flawed arguments in an attempt to justify meeting our fleshly needs. To guard your mind, you must aggressively deal a death blow to every thought. No matter how small it is. It requires discipline and the grace of God to not yield to each demonic thought. We must quickly “think on these things” according to Philippians chapter 4. We must quickly meditate on the Word according to Joshua 1:8. We must keep our mind stayed on Him according to Isaiah 26:3.

DAY 36: THE PURPOSE OF THE NIGHT SEASONS:

Figuratively, the phrase “the night seasons” speaks of ‘adversity.’ The evening and the night times presents the greatest challenges for men and women. While you are to rest, if the urges and impulses of your flesh are not controlled, you will give in to sexual sins. That’s why it is important to set the Lord before You each night. To prevail mightily over every sin and circumstance, you must learn to flow with the Lord on a moment-by-moment basis. It is crucial that you begin to understand when these urges and impulses operate the strongest. It doesn’t take much to figure it out because as you trace back in time when these urges and impulses occur, you will begin to set a watch during these times. I believe that the Lord Jesus prayed often to suppress these urges. Remember, He was tempted in all points, yet He didn’t commit sin. The power of God stayed strong in Him because He was able to subdue His mind and body. Therefore, we need to take the same approach. We do not have to fail. Through Christ, we are destined to succeed over every temptation, over every urge, and over every thought, and impulse. However, it takes a team effort. The Holy Spirit, the Word of God, your choice to overcome through Christ, and other strong men or women of God that learned to overcome these areas of temptation. Together, we can subdue and have dominion.

DAY 35: IMMOVABLE, PART ONE:

The enemy always want to move you into the place of falling into sin. When you declare that you are not going any where, you are making a statement that demands that the other party must move.  Take some notes on the features of mountains. They are large formations of rock that are molded together. From creation, they stand and cannot be moved. They stand the test of time. In the same manner, God is just like a Rock. We must understand that when He hides us in the cleft of the Rock, we are under it’s covering protection. That’s why when you want to fall, all you have to do is remember that you are under the protective covering of the eternal Rock. Just like the Lord goes no where. When you are in Him, you go no where, too. You can’t go to the place of sexual sins if you are in the Rock. You can’t be moved to fall into temptation if you are in the Rock. When the enemy wants to shower temptation upon you, the Rock will not feel a thing. Everything that falls on the Rock becomes broken. That’s why you can outlast temptation because you are under the protective covering of the Rock of Ages. Therefore, do not come out from under the protective covering of the Rock.

DAY 34: LONELINESS:

Thank God that His Word tells us that He is always there when we need Him most. We must trust in the Word of God and exercise our faith in God’s presence. Loneliness is one of the main reasons people commit suicide. A person’s self worth and value diminishes, and a sense of emptiness overwhelms a person. Sex or self sex is used to cope with the feeling of loneliness. Why? Sex is a physical form of intimacy but it still leaves a person empty inside because after sexual immorality is accomplished, the Bible says that it ‘brings forth death.’ Death is separation from life. False intimacy never satisfies. Once sexual tension is released, you’re back at loneliness. Sex will never replace that acute loneliness. Sex within the confines of marriage is an integral part of marriage but it is never the full satisfier of the relationship. It is important to never use sex as the only thing to pursue complete fulfillment. Relating with a person is the goal of complete fulfillment. Hence, physical relationships is secondary to complete fulfillment. Fellowshipping with the Father, through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ is fulfilling. So far, we have concentrated on restoring your love for the Father. Reconnecting with Him is more important than any other relationship. So when the enemy insists that you are lonely, just give him the Word of God. God alone will satisfy your deepest longings.

DAY 33: GAINING UNDERSTANDING ABOUT YOU:

This is the most difficult part about our lives. Gaining a comprehensive understanding about ourselves. Just when you think you know who you are, you find ourselves doing things that you shouldn’t be doing. Only the Lord fully understands you. That’s why you have the Bible and the Holy Spirit. From time to time, you need “other eyes” on your life because you may be missing things about you that could prove to be a barrier to full deliverance, recovery, redemption, and restoration. Again, I admonish you never to be your own physician. You will never see a heart surgeon operate on his or her own heart. Whatever you think you know about yourself must be set aside. It doesn’t mean that you may not be aware of certain things that could be true. There may be some issues that you may be missing. Sometimes a person could be in denial. When denial sets it, sometimes it can prove to be supported by pride and arrogance. It’s one thing to know what isn’t true about you but it is another thing to know that something is true about you but you deny it. Learn to let it go and let God change you so you can be fully free in Christ.

DAY 32: TENDER-MERCIES:

When the morning comes, I can’t help but think about the tender mercies of the Lord. Another word for tender mercies is ‘sensitive mercies’. Sensitive means ‘quick to respond.’ The Father is prepared to respond quickly to us in His eternal mercies. He is slow to wrath and destruction. He is full of compassion. As we delight in the Word of God, we are quickly reminded that God is a loving God. The other side of the story is that we cannot dupe ourselves into thinking that just because He is sensitive with His mercies that we take advantage of it. We quickly respond in repentance and cleanse ourselves from the filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. There are many brothers that are repeat offenders because they fail to understand that every time we sin against God, we grieve or sadden Him. To avoid grieving the Holy Spirit, we must fight every moment of our lives. Now, more than ever, the Lord is counting on you to show others that the Lord is good and His mercies endure forever.

DAY 31: PRESERVATION:

Isn’t it good to know that the Lord will preserve you at night? The Word preserve means “to guard.’ The Lord will guard you from trouble. David, the psalmist said, “The Lord will protect you from trouble.’ David was surrounded with all sorts of trouble but he trusted in the Lord to preserve or guard him from trouble. So it is with you. You can expect the same measure of protection afforded to David thousands of years ago. Only this protection is afforded in Christ, the Word, and the Holy Spirit. Tonight, God will guard you but there is a part that you must play. You must keep yourself in the Lord. Remember, the Lord is our refuge and help. The righteous run into the name of the Lord and they are safe. You must choose to run into the name of the Lord at the first sign of trouble. That first sign of trouble is when your looking at a woman lingers longer than intended, or when your mind lingers on the cover of a magazine of a man or a woman. You must learn to run back to the safe place of the Lord and His Word to quickly overcome in the evil moment. By doing this, the Lord will preserve you.

DAY 30: THIRTY DAYS:

It’s been thirty days. Congratulations! Thirty is the number of maturity. The Lord Jesus began His ministry at the age of 30. The Levites can only serve in the tabernacle beginning at age thirty for twenty years. At this point in your never ending journey towards establishing and maintaining sexual purity before the Lord, just below this statement, please share how the Lord is working wonderfully in your life. Please share your challenges, experiences, and the various trials, and temptations that the Lord helped you to overcome. Please note any changes that took place in your life. If you have maintained your sanctification, this is a significant milestone for your life. Thank God that His grace is working exceedingly abundantly above all that you could ask or think, according to the power that is presently working in you.

DAY 29: DISCERNING DESIRES:

There are obvious mental and fleshly desires that rise constantly in the mind of a person. You must understand the difference between God’s desires and your fleshly, carnal desires because decisions determines destiny. As long as you make decisions out of righteousness and pure holiness, your flesh cannot rule you. The first desire must be a desire for God and His Word. The Lord Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.” When you put God and His Word first place in your life, after you delight yourself in the Lord, He will give you the desires of your heart. First things first, last things last. Things that are not of God’s ordained will or plan for your life is excluded, and exempt. So drink of the fountain of life in Christ. Drink freely of Him and you will always be fully satisfied.

DAY 28: SANCTIFYING OURSELVES:

When we are sorry about the sins we’ve committed against the Lord, we get to the place where we must never sin against Him again. This is a long term commitment. It is a commitment to move from selfishness and looking to please ourselves to pleasing our Lord every moment. Sanctification requires the grace and strength of the Lord. We must teach ourselves that there is nothing good that the devil offers that is better than what God gives us. The flesh and mind desires so much to be out of control. To be out of control demands we ignore God and His Word. The result is always the same. God is grieved and we are out of fellowship with God. Sanctification is the God given ability to separate ourselves from everything that is not of God. You cannot do this on your own. Sanctification is a willing act because the Lord cannot force you to be separated to His exclusive use. This level of sanctification requires that we cut off everything that our eyes are trained to see. This level of sanctification requires that we no longer intend to sin and gratify ourselves. To guard against relapse you must be willing to cut off the TV, discontinue reading magazines and newspapers, browse certain sections of the Internet, and other activities that lead to sexual sins.

DAY 27: CUTTING OFF:

Many of us believe that we are strong enough to handle the temptation that runs across the TV screens, movies, DVDs and other material. We are not. Even the Lord Jesus said, “The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” By His own admission, He acknowledge that the flesh will have its struggles but don’t give in to them. I believe that you can strengthen your spirit man like the Lord Jesus to overcome every offer of temptation that the devil throws at you. The place where Jesus was successful was prayer. On numerous occasions in the Scriptures, we see Jesus “steal away” in seclusion to seek the face of God. The key was that He departed from the presence of people. Today, the presence of people is in our hands. In an instant we can take any device and view what people are doing. Including observing sexual images. A conductor walked into my office and opened up his phone, and showed me a couple having sex on a car. It’s that simple. Porn on the phone. Do not get any ideas. After he departed my office, I had to cast that imagination down and bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. You must be willing to deal with every aspect of what the world offers in an immediate manner. If you let time lapse, that’s how the enemy is allowed to install a stronghold in your soul. Begin a constant habit of casting every demonic thing down. Do not delay!

DAY 26: RIGHTEOUS THOUGHTS:

There are many thoughts that travel in our minds. Our souls can be conditioned to think any thing at any time. Our souls can plan and put into motion these plans. Our bodies go along for the ride. So far, what should be happening in your life is that God is the center of your life. The Word is the center of your life. These moments are critical moments because it’s not over. The devil will always see to this but we will always have the upper hand against him because of the Lord Jesus. The Lord is at hand. The right hand of the Lord does valiantly. We are seated in heavenly places in Christ. No weapon formed against us shall prosper. The greatest battles always takes place in the soul. That’s why it is important to maintain righteous thoughts all the time. Remember when the Lord was tempted by the devil? The devil was so frustrated at the stand of Jesus that he left him for a season. The lesson is clear. We need to make our stand and keep standing every day. One slip up is all the devil needs to get us to resume a life in bondage. We must never give in. Never! To think righteous thoughts requires yielding to the Holy Spirit when He tells you to. Instantaneous obedience to God and His Word will always keep you from sin. That’s why Paul said, “Give no place to the devil.”

DAY 25: RENEWING THE MIND:

When Paul shared about renewing the spirit of your mind, he was speaking of what the mind, in essence, is to be thinking about. The solution is simple. When we fill our hearts and minds with the Word of God, we are creating a conducive environment in the mind to receive instruction from God’s Word. What we do with that instruction dictates how our minds ‘think on these things’. After we meditate on the Word according to Joshua 1:8, we carry out our lives according to that Word. The renewing of the mind is not a one time issue. We are to constantly renew or renovate our minds. Vine’s Dictionary of Biblical Words gives us a great understanding of what it means to renew the mind. “The ‘renewal’ is…under the controlling power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, directs its bent and energies Godward in the enjoyment of ‘fellowship with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ’ and of the fulfillment of the will of God.” When we renew or renovate our minds, we are allowing our minds to be governed by the Holy Spirit. When we do this, we are discontinuing the devil’s access of his thoughts of perversion from having free course in our minds. This is part of the ‘casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every [demonic reasoning] thought to the obedience of Christ.’

DAY 24: IMMOVABLE, PART TWO:

The times when we sin is when we are easily moved in the area of our emotions. The Lord doesn’t allow for our feet to be moved by our enemies. The devil loves to torment us but we must frustrate his torments by remaining immovable. We must remember that men have emotions. According to one dictionary, emotions could mean ‘a very intense feeling, which often involves a physical as well as a mental response and implies outward expression or agitation.’ Depending upon the way we feel, if we do not govern our emotions by the Word of God, we will make a series of choices that could lead to sexual sins. When we are depressed, we desire a “pick-me-up.” The reward chemical after sex (legitimate or immoral) is dopamine. When we have conquered or ‘scored’ we want a reward. It’s called dopamine. It’s because when we feel entitled to reward ourselves, we discover that this chemical works well too. What makes dopamine rewards wrong for the adulterer, fornicator, or anyone that is sexually immoral is that it’s a sin that leads to sexual addictions. Dopamine is the drug of choice. If you are married, there is no problem, however, if you are not, then there is a problem. To be immovable requires that you yield entirely to the Lord and His Word. Seek His reward. The Bible says, ‘at His right hand are pleasures for evermore.’

DAY 23: VICTORY:

No victory is achieved without being firmly connected to the Lord. You cannot do this without Christ. Here’s another thing. There will be times that you will need Christ to work through others in concert to keep you free. If you are serious about this, Christ will use everything in His arsenal to keep you from falling into sin ever again. The thing that yo have to do is be ready to receive the deliverance any way that you can get it. Deliverance from the grip of the devil’s temptation will never look good. What matters is that deliverance works. It could be a phone call from an accountability brother. Someone praying with you right at the moment you need prayer. It could be a stroll to the church instead of a stroll to places where sin is waiting for you. You must be sensible enough to recognize that God is doing something for you that will help you overcome in the evil day. Remember, the enemy wants to severe your connection to the True Vine. God will not let that happen because He invested many things to get you delivered and to keep you delivered. The key is that you must make every effort to fight for your deliverance. You must fight to maintain your victory in Christ.

DAY 22: POWERFUL PRAYERS:

The Pauline prayers is a glimpse into the prayer life of this apostle. Packed in each prayer is God’s heart for the believer. When you pray these prayers for yourself, you will gain an understanding of the kind of praying that is demanded while you are living in this life. With sexual temptation all around us, we need to pray these power packed prayers for ourselves. We can see that we need power and might to stand against the wiles or strategies of the devil. The secret of praying these prayers is that you are praying the Word of God over your life. Praying in this manner reminds us of the sacrifice the Lord made for you over two thousand years ago. Praying these prayers reminds you of the love the Father has for you. Praying these prayers reminds you that you are no longer a child of darkness but a saint in light. So when you pray these prayers with your all your heart, mind, soul, and strength, just remember that you are praying the same prayers that Paul prayed that kept him.

DAY 21: THE POWER OF THE WORD:

There is no substitute for the power of the Word of God. The power of God is always in the Word of God. Every bit of God’s creation is upheld by the Word of God. The Word is perfect. The Word is sure. The Word is right. The Word is pure. The Word of God is clean. The Word of God is true. The Word of the Lord is righteous. The Psalm speaks of the sevenfold standard of the Word towards man. Seven is the number of perfection. Man was created on the sixth day. Day one, we need conversion. Day two, we need wisdom. Day three, we need to rejoice. Day four, we need His enlightenment. Day five, we need a cleansing that endures. Day six, we need truth. Day seven, we need righteousness. God rested on the seventh day, declaring His perfection. Six days of labor then we can rest. That day of rest is when mortality puts on immortality. For six days, we are being perfected as we apply the perfect Word. God is putting us through His process of perfection to bring us back into righteousness by the Word. Every day is a struggle for every man but when we develop a ritual or routine of living the way the Word tells us to live, we will enter into that day of rest. Therefore, we are to trust in the power of the Word every day of our lives so we can rest.

DAY 20: REMEMBER ME:

Each day is filled with God’s lovingkindness and tender mercies. Too often, when we fall into sin, we expect to get slammed by God. We need to understand that sin is a violation of God and His Word. There is no question about that. What we do afterwards, determines whether we are sincere about repentance or we are just playing silly little games that catches up with us. The Lord demands that we get it right. The sooner that we do, the better. It’s not just about getting it right. It’s about restoring our relationship with God on His terms. We must never forget that God loves us. That He cares about us. We must never forget that sin is cheating on God like a man cheats on his wife. Spiritual adultery is synonymous with physical adultery. The thing that is amazing about God is that when you truly repent, He remembers nothing about your sin against Him. David asks the Lord, “Do not remember the sins of my youth nor my transgressions.” Just remember me. That’s one thing that we can count on. When you are departing your secret sexual sin for the final time, you can count on God to remember you.

DAY 19: ESCAPE FROM THE GRAVE AND FROM DEMONIC TRAPS:

We will never understand the magnitude of the delivering power of God until after we leave this life. Just as the prodigal son came to his senses, so did you. Right at the point that you finally gave up secret sexual sins, it may have been the last warning. A turning point for your life. As I was reading about one individual, he decided to “act out” his fantasy of having sex with a minor. He spied on another man looking to have sex with the same underage teen he was seeking. It turned out to be a police sting. His friend was arrested for soliciting sex from a minor. As he sat in his car, watching his friend being taken away by the police, he finally sought help for his sexual addiction. When we are about to cross that line we said we never would, we find ourselves at God’s crossroad. Either we decide to call it quits or we go down. Then the enemy is not done. There is plenty of secret traps laid for you. You must ask the Holy Spirit to lead you and guide you. When David asks the Lord to pull me out of the net, that net is not the commission of the act. That net is the one step that we are about to take to fall into sin, but God is still strong enough to pull you from that net. We must remember. When it comes to any sin, we still have one prayer left. Remember. When we fall into sin or “act out” our fantasy, the consequences could be great.

DAY 18: ESTABLISHED STEPS:

Every day that you keep yourself from sexual sin, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, you steps are ordered or firmly established. That’s the whole idea about this devotional. To get you established in the Lord and His Word so that you can withstand in the evil day. There was a time in my life that I fooled myself into thinking that I was established. Again, I bamboozled myself until the Lord applied pressure in my life to come clean. It didn’t have to come to this because I didn’t trust Him to be the only one I needed to go to for complete fulfillment. Any time you begin to do something that only God can do, you will ruin your life. Just like Proverbs 27:20 says, our eyes are never fulfilled. We will always look to ourselves to feel satisfied. Like always, I came up short. I needed to establish my steps in the Lord. The only way that this could be done is by spending more time with the presence of the Lord and His Word.

DAY 17: COMPASSION AND MERCY:

When you see the compassion and mercy of the Lord, it is amazing. At any time, He could have brought judgment on a level that would have destroyed us. Every day that I see is a day that I become grateful because He could have destroyed me. God is abundant in mercy and truth. That tells me that what I truly deserved, He withheld it. On the other hand, the Lord is abundant in truth. That tells me that I cannot escape truth. No matter how many false ideas I could come up with the justify sin, truth will always overwhelm it. Why? It’s because we need to face the truth. The truth about sin is that it separates us from God. Through the Lord Jesus, we can come back to God in truth. So as you sleep tonight or get up in the morning, the Lord is a shield about you. When you are experiencing emotional moments, He will lift your head up. When you go to bed, you will fall asleep in Him. When you wake up, you realize that He sustained you. Go ahead and give God praise for His sustaining power. Hallelujah!

DAY 16: REMAINING TEACHABLE:

It is very critical to remain teachable. The moment we lose this element, pride enters the heart. Many believers that experience freedom early in their deliverance desire to teach others. This is not the time to be a teacher. It is the time to be taught. Many believers, including pastors, ministers, music ministers, or anyone in ministerial leadership positions need to turn their graced gift off while going through this season of deliverance. To walk uprightly, you must also surrender your pride. Pride is what got me in trouble. I hid behind the graced gift of God. I thought no one would know my secret sexual sins but it was a matter of time. Once I exposed my sins, I needed to be taught. That meant that I had to shut down me teaching others so I could receive teaching. It was difficult but each day, my personal walk with God got stronger by the month. When the Lord Jesus was in His  earthly teenage years, the Bible said that He would spend time among the doctors of the law. After that time, the Bible said that He ‘waxed strong.’ As I was going through this season of correction, the Spirit of God quickened that phrase in my spirit. I was waxing strong because the Lord was finally getting His Word in me in a place where His strength was made perfect in weakness in my life. If you are going to win this winnable battle, there is no other way but to remain teachable.

DAY 15: REMAINING PURE:

Purity is the goal of every person. This requires that you ask the Lord to refine your life. Just like gold and precious metals are purified by fire, so must your life. The Word is the purifier. Not episodes of temptation. The devil is the tempter. If you fall into sin, he becomes the accuser of the brethren. He can only accuse you if you sin. To keep the devil from becoming your accuser, you must be purified by fire. Jeremiah struggled with resuming his prophetic ministry but he couldn’t walk away from the Word. Because the Word was like fire, closed up in his bones (see Jeremiah 20:9). Just when you are about to walk away and fall into temptation, the Word of the Lord begins to burn within you to remind you that you cannot walk away that easy. The Lord will refine your heart at night. When the psalmist concluded, he said (NKJ), “I have purpose that my mouth shall not transgress’ but the Message Bible said, ‘You’ll find I’m just what I say I am. My words don’t run loose.’ Will He find impurities or will He find gold, silver, or precious stones? To be truthful about being purified requires that you be a person of your word. Hence, transparent accountability.

DAY 14: WITHOUT BLINKING AN EYE:

As you put more distance from the last time you gratified your flesh with porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation, you must always remember that the Lord doesn’t blink an eye. The Message Bible says of Psalm 11:4b “He’s in charge, as always, His eyes taking everything in, his eyelids unblinking, examining Adam’s unruly brood inside and out, not missing a thing.” God is not looking for perfection because He knows that you and I are dust. He expects you to have an honest approach to living holy. When you know that you have missed it. In other words, you didn’t take your eyes off that woman. You took a second lustful glance. You looked at a magazine cover too long. God didn’t blink an eye. The Word of God is purified perfectly. In 2 Corinthians 7:1, Paul said, “Let us cleanse ourselves from the filthiness of the flesh and spirit perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” The opportunity to cleanse yourself is always available. It is not a loophole. It is a stopgap measure. Everyday we are confronted with environmental dirt. We need to be honest enough to admit that we have dirt that we need to be cleansed of. We take a bath or shower everyday in the natural to stay clean. We must do the same in our flesh and spirit.

DAY 13: TEACHING YOUR HANDS:

Your hands. They could be instruments of sin or instruments of righteousness. Paul admonishes us to use our faculties for righteousness. For many of us, we have yielded to the dictates of the flesh and trained our hands to commit sin. Now that you are free, your hands are to be trained for war against sin. When the psalmist declares that we will be able to bend the bronze bow, we must realize that bronze is not as strong as steel. What this means is that the enemy is disarmed and we can take his only defense away from him and bend it in his face. The end of sin in your life is when you walk up to the one thing that used to defeat you and destroy it in the front of the enemy. When the enemy is disarmed and his defense is taken away from him, death is inevitable. That means that the enemy is completely subdued. We no longer are dominated by our urges and impulses. We are no longer dominated by our thoughts and fantasies. We are no longer victims. We need to write these things down and be ready to declare the terms of our righteous behavior for the rest of our lives. The good theme for the rest of your life is that you are in Christ and you have the greater one on the inside. Your good theme is that you are under control.

DAY 12: KEEPING YOURSELF:

It is possible to maintain discipline. Keeping yourself is a lifelong journey. Sin stops where disciplined habits are formed. The Word and the Holy Spirit plays one role but your obedience plays another role. The combination of the two will yield righteousness, sanctification; producing holiness in the “reverential fear” of God. Your moment by moment victory is established by what the Lord did in His Word. This is how His grace operates in our lives. We are to take that grace and lean on it until we wake up in the morning. We receive a fresh infusion of grace when we pray and seek the face of God. Noah found grace in the eyes of God. When we seek His face, we are seeking that grace for the moment. We are not told to come boldly to the throne of grace just once and that’s it. We can come boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. That need could happen at any time. That need for grace is connected to the times we are experiencing temptation and we need a way out that we may be able to bear it. Learn to seek after this grace before the intensity of the temptation reach its boiling point where resistance is almost impossible. You do not have to fall because God gave you everything necessary to stand against every strategy of temptation the devil has to offer.

DAY 11: PAYING VOWS:

A vow is a very powerful agreement that moves the hand of God. The one thing that is required is that when the Lord comes through, you must honor your end of the agreement to the letter. A vow is blessing but it also could be dangerous. When we ask God to do something and He does it, you are under pressure to come through with your part. When you ask God to deliver you from porn and self gratification, He will come through. If you put it as a vow, you are obligated to pay up immediately. Years ago, I was left back in High School. The tenth grade. I made a vow to the Lord that if He would restore me back to my grade and cause me to graduate on time, I would serve Him the rest of my days. It took me a long time to come through with that payment. To serve Him required I give up everything that would prohibit me from fully serving Him. When it came to sin in my life, there was no way possible that I could serve Him with sin in my life. It was only until the sin of porn and self gratification was dealt a death blow that I fully paid my end of the vow. If you want deliverance out of certain things, be prepared to make a vow and keep it. Deliverance is not predicated on making a vow. A vow is usually done out of desperation but out of desperation the Lord delivers. If you are desperate for deliverance, perhaps you should consider making a vow.

DAY 10: LONGING FOR GOD:

The key to the sanctified life is when you long for God alone. When you search for God alone. When you have this kind of thirst, you need to go to the one that is able to satisfy you. What the devil offers you will never satisfy you. It leaves you longing for more. It progresses into more perverseness. It gets worse every moment you remain in his deception. After you sin, you always feel bad because you have violated the law of God, but thank God that you have learned how to stay away from the traps of the enemy. Thank God that you’ve recognized that God is all you need. Every thing that comes from the devil remains an unfulfilled promise. With God, He always fulfill His promise.  Isn’t it good to know that you are free and that there are no negative after affects like guilt or remorse? Freedom is when you can walk with your head held high towards the countenance of the Lord and have confidence that you are walking in His righteousness. Pleasing Him every moment. That’s the goal of Come Clean. That you walk in complete freedom from secret sexual sins. Give God praise for your liberty in Christ.

DAY 9: SANCTIFICATION, PART 1

Back in Day 28, we talked about sanctification. It is important that separation be maintained because you cannot have darkness and be in the light at the same time. You will never find God mixing it up with the devil. There is no evil in God and there is no righteousness in the devil. There is no truth in the devil and there is no deception in God. There is no association with sexual immorality and sexual purity. NONE! Sanctification requires complete separation. The children of Moab were descendants of Lot by incest. The daughters of Lot caused him to become drunk and they had sex with him. The oldest daughter brought forth Moab and the younger daughter brought forth Ammon. They had sex with their own father because they believed that no man would be available to marry them. Before incest, Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt. She failed to be disciplined because she had emotional attachments to Sin City. As judgment fell, Lot’s wife looked back. Sanctification requires that you never look back. This is the Mother of All Battles. To look back indicates that a separation never took place. Looking back reveals a longing for that which is forbidden. There is a difference between testifying out of sanctification and returning to the place of sin in reminisce. Do not reminisce. It potentially aids in producing a longing to return to sin.

DAY 8: SANCTIFICATION, PART 2

The Lord Jesus prayed that the disciples be sanctified by truth. Remember, in chapter 14 that the Lord Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to the Father but by Me.’ To be sanctified by truth is to be sanctified in and by Jesus. True sanctification is only found in Christ. Here in His High Priestly prayer, He asks the Father to sanctify them through the Father’s truth. The Father and the Son are One. Jesus also prayed that we would be one with the Father and with the Son. Therefore, we must conclude that if we are in relationship with the Father, through His Son, the Lord Jesus, we are sanctified or set apart for the exclusive service of the Lord. Service in the sense that we are sanctified to fellowship with God. That’s our true service. Ministry is secondary. Fellowship with the Father, through His Son, is primary. Therefore, we cannot be in true fellowship without being truly sanctified. Sexual immorality is spiritual harlotry or adultery. Sin is fellowship with the devil. If we are to live the sanctified life, we must maintain our separation from anything that is not in fellowship with the Father and with the Son.

DAY 7: WHO’S REIGNING IN YOU?

The key to any victory or any defeat, for that matter, is who is reigning in you. According to Strong’s Concordance, the word “reign” is from the Greek word “basileuo” and it means ‘to rule.’ To rule also indicates ownership. When we sin we are owned by the devil. He loses ownership where sin is no longer committed. If you are in Christ, He rules where righteousness is established. Jesus is either Lord of all or Lord of none. He doesn’t share Ownership. That’s why you can’t be in sin and righteousness at the same time. You must make a forever choice. For grace to abound, sin cannot rule in your life. For death to abound in your life, righteousness cannot rule over you. Both cannot rule over you. If you have been made free by the Lord Jesus, and up to this point, you have submitted to the Lord with all your heart, then you are well on your way to establishing Who is reigning in your life. If you are still struggling with secret sexual sins, you are still having an Ownership issue. Now, God is still gracious. He is still merciful. At the same time, you have to begin making your mind up. Eventually and inevitably, whoever is your owner will claim you. When it comes to righteousness and unrighteousness, it’s a matter of eternity.

DAY 6: DEAD TO SIN, BUT ALIVE TO GOD:

The wonderful thing about the death of Jesus is that He didn’t stay dead. By the glory of the Father, He was raised from the dead. In the same manner, we must reckon ourselves dead to sin and alive to God. Secret Sexual Sins is a death but Jesus took this on the cross and you are alive unto God forever. This is the moment that you need to rejoice in the Lord because what used to hold you no longer does. The resurrection of Christ is an open display to the world that death no longer has dominion over you. The lifestyle of the devil was placed on Jesus. The characteristics of the devil was placed on Jesus. The nature of the devil was placed on Jesus but the resurrection was a display to the world that you are now alive unto God. Sexual sins is a life of death. It was crucified. False intimacy was crucified. You now have newness of life. You now have true intimacy with God through Christ. To be free and stay free is an indication to you that you are alive unto God. From this moment on, because you are dead to sin, you do not respond to the sinful urges and impulses to gratify your flesh. Your urges and impulses are to be given over to the Lord. Our sex drive is disciplined. We are restored to wholeness in this area by Christ. Righteousness has complete dominance. We respond to God and ignore the devil forever!

DAY 5: DISCIPLINE:

For as long as you are in this life, living in the tent of flesh, you must do everything possible to discipline your flesh. Just because you may be reaching the finishing line of this journal, it doesn’t mean that it’s over. The race that is set before you is a marathon. The only finishing line that is left to cross is the line where we transition from this life to the next in Christ. The body always looks for a way to make a come back. It plans a sinful resurrection but you must remind your body about the funeral service it had on the last day that you watched porn and masturbated. The real last day was the day Christ was crucified. The enforcement of this death is left up to you. You have to remind the body of sin that it was committed to the grave. There is no resurrection for the body of sin in this life. The only resurrection that it can look forward to is when mortality puts on immortality. When the change of our mortal bodies is complete. Until then, the dirt remains over the casket. The tombstone remains in place. The death of discipline is a signal to the body of sin that sin is permitted. The discipline of death reminds the body that it can’t rise until Christ says so, in newness of life. Until then, discipline must be enforced.

DAY: 4 TAKING HEED:

While our victory over every temptation is sealed in the victory of Christ, we must always guard our selves against every attack. They come in subtle ways and the come in blatant ways. We must never get cocky, full of pride, and arrogant. If you are to remain free, we must never allow ourselves to let the devil come in through “backdoor” modes and methods. We stand on the mountain top, thinking that we have done something. Then the enemy comes in and brings a test that traps us. God will always make a way of escape. God will always give us wisdom. You can count on it but you must never think that you overcome by yourself. The grace of the Lord was there all the time to help you every step of the way. Make sure you take heed.

DAY 3: DOES NOT SIN?

That’s what John, an apostle of the Lamb said. There is a place in the Lord where you can stay away from sin forever. This is not perfection. We will miss it. We will commit sins of omission but he is talking about intentional sin. He is talking about habitual sin. He is talking about knowingly violate the will of God relating to morals. When you are driving a vehicle, there is regulations that must be adhered to. Stops signs. Stop lights. Speed limits and other regulations are there to control you. Otherwise serious injury or your death and the deaths of others will occur. The whole goal of these lessons and information is help you learn how to listen to the Lord and regulate your lives. When it comes to the sin of porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation, you can stop it. To please God, your flesh must never rule you. Your mind must never rule you. Only God and the Word in your spirit man must rule you. If you couldn’t do it, you wouldn’t have spent these days learning how to rule your mind and flesh.

DAY 2: UNREASONING TRUST:

For the last 59 days, the main objective was to get you to see that you needed to trust the Father. The Word “Abba” is Aramaic. According to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words, “[T]he Greek speaking Jews added the Greek word pater, ‘father’ from the language they used. Abba is the word framed by the lips of infants, and betokens unreasoned trust; ‘Father’ expresses an intelligent apprehension of the relationship. The two together express the love and intelligent confidence of the child.” The reason you were in sexual sins was because you trusted you and the devil. You didn’t trust God to be who He said He would be to you. You believed that He could be that Father you needed for every one else but you couldn’t believe He could be Father to you. You trusted in yourself long enough. You met your own needs long enough.

Cry out Abba, Father.

He’s been waiting for that cry from you the moment you started, 59 days ago.

Lesson One: Do you want to be well?”, Part 1

In the book of John chapter 5, there was a man laying at the pool of Bethesda. He had a physical condition lasting 38 years. He was either paralyzed or lame. He was able to move because when the Lord Jesus asked him if he wanted to be made well, he said, “When I am coming…” It is possible that he had upper body strength. Obviously, he couldn’t walk because the Lord told him to do something that he couldn’t do in 38 years.

Anyway, the Lord wanted to heal the lame man. The lame or paralyzed man gave an excuse. Then the Lord told him to take up his bed and walk.

My question to you is, “Do you want to be well?” 

You are one of many persons that want to be free of pornography and self gratification, commonly called masturbation. Trapped in this seemingly inescapable web, a glue trap, or prison, each time you tell yourself that you would never do this again, you find yourself revolving back into the house of bondage. Sometimes, in one night, multiple violations. Even to the point of doing physical harm to your private anatomy, going beyond being sore.

For 33 years, 5 years short of the man in the story, I was bound to secret sexual sins. Self gratification, commonly called masturbation. For 10 of those years of the back end of the 33 years, I was involved in pornography. I tried everything to be free. From deliverance services to spitting out demons. None of it seemed to work. While being made well requires a decision that you must make, it can’t be done apart from the miraculous grace and power of God.

This meant that I had to entirely commit to working the grace and power of the Word of God every moment of my life. To not sin sexual sins any more was my goal but I needed help.

You are among many persons that will take this step as I did. You must throw aside the fear of relapse. The fear of yielding to temptation. The fear of letting your urges and impulses rise and get the best of you. The fear of making a point of no return decision. You are about to jump off this cliff of sexual immorality and let God catch you. You can do it but you must receive help from God and from other men that beat this thing by the power of God. This journal will help you to establish victory and accountability. Meaningful accountability.

I encourage you to read on!

Lesson Two: “Do you want to be well?”, Part 2

To be made well means that you do not want to remain in this condition any longer. Just like a sick person when they feel pain, they want relief. To get relief, sometimes, pain must be administered. You can take the pain. When the pain is deep inside, the only way to get to the pain is to open the outside. To get well, the protective layers must experience pain. The pain of exposure. The pain of opening up. The pain of emotional experiences. The pain of rejection. The pain of relational wounds. The pain of sexual molestation. The pain to let sin go. You’ve tolerated the pain of sin and avoided the pain to get well long enough. It is time to get healed.

While the lame or paralyzed man, perhaps, wasn’t experiencing pain, his inability to experience a normal life was a pain of itself. No matter what kind of pain you are experiencing now, when you want to be made well, the Lord will make you well. You can be normal again.

What happens after you are made well is going to be the tale of the tape. Sexual normalcy or sobriety requires that you answer one question. Dr. Mark Laaser, a former sex addict, challenged me with this question.

“Could you do without sex with yourself and can you do without sex with your spouse for a season to regain sexual sobriety?”

If you are to regain the mastery over your flesh, you must move from an overdose of sex to sexual normalcy. The thoughts and fantasies must stop. The ritual to prepare to act out must be dismantled. If you are not prepared to replace these thoughts of fantasy and ritualistic preparation to gratify yourself with the Word and the lifestyle of the Lord Jesus, you will relapse.  This is an uphill struggle of epic proportions. The fallen are many. Many of them gave up because they allowed the urges and impulses to assume overwhelming control. The demand intensified and overwhelmed them at their weakest point. The mind depends upon the chemical rewards release and fights vigorously to stick the needle in the vein. For the body, it’s about getting its release and dopamine fix.

No matter what is going on in your mind and body, if you decide right now that you want to be made well, God is faithful, who will not let you be tempted above that which you are able, but will with the temptation make a way of escape that you may be able to bear it (see 1 Corinthians 10:13).

If you are ready to be made well, continue reading.

Lesson Three: HOPELESSNESS

In Romans 7:15-25 (NLT), Paul begins a discourse that every person identifies with.

“I don’t understand myself at all, for I really want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do the very thing I hate. I know perfectly well that what I am doing is wrong, and my bad conscience shows that I agree that the law is good. But I can’t help myself, because it is sin inside me that makes me do these evil things.

Instead, I do what I hate. But if I know that what I am doing is wrong, this shows that I agree that the law is good.  So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it. And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.I want to do what is right, 

but I can’t. 

I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway. But if I do what I don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.

I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong.

 I love God’s law with all my heart. But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? 

Sadly, you stop right there and walk away from your deliverance. Not realizing that you’re on the verge of a breakthrough. This is where I would approach victory. Only to turn away. For 33 long years I turned away. Until I had enough. You do not have to wait this long. You can go to the next verse and declare your victory in Christ. It is not hopeless! 

Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. 

So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, 

but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.

Hopelessness and the slavery to sexual sin ends when you walk in the Spirit and not the flesh. When you obey the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus that made you free from the law of sin and death (see Romans 8:1-2).

Lesson Four: Sin

  • There is one thing you need to get straight. Repentance is about turning from sin or changing your mind or perspective about sin. Jesus died to save you from sin, not so that you can continue to sin. In Romans chapter six and verse one, Paul said,

“Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? God, forbid!”

  • Sin is violation of the law. John calls it ‘lawlessness’. Sin violates the holy character of God. Sin is against the nature of God. Sin is wrongdoing. Sin is covenant breaking. There is no way to easily break this to you except for the fact that sin is against God and God is against sin.
  • Of all that we do against God, the core or root of all we do against God, is sin. There are many people and believers that want to just deal with the emotional causes of secret sexual sins alone. We can’t deal with the soul until we deal with the spiritual cause of sin. Sin was dealt a death blow because of Jesus.
  • Sin is a spiritual condition that affects the soul and flesh. Sin is a nature or characteristic that is opposite or opposed of God. Sin occurred in heaven and the devil, and his fallen angels were cast out (see Isaiah 14:12-17, Ezekiel 28:11-19, and Revelation 12:7-12).
  • To break free from sin, you need the Savior. Only Jesus can free you and satisfy the deep longings in your heart that you would never thirst for sin again.

Proverbs 29:6 from the NLT says,

Evil people are trapped by sin, but the righteous escape, shouting for joy.”

  • You do not need to stay trapped in sin. Repent forever and you can be like the righteous. Escape and shout for joy. The Lord will always make a way of escape so you are able to bear up under the temptation. To escape sin, you must escape temptation every time. The Lord will be faithful to help you to escape because according to 1 Corinthians 10:13, He will not let you be tempted above that which you are able to resist. You have to trust Him that no matter what is set before your eyes, the Holy Spirit will instruct you to quickly shift your eyes off of sin and focus on the Lord.

Lesson Five: FOREVER REPENTANCE

The first sermon that the Lord Jesus preached when He began His ministry was repent. Matthew 4:17 says,

From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, 

“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

  • The word ‘repent’ is the Greek word ‘metanoeo’ (met-an-o-eo) and according to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words, it means “to change one’s mind or purpose.’
  • Sexual sin is always about what is in your mind. The Lord Jesus commanded you to change your perception about sin.
  • Being that you are a born again believer, or at least you should be, when you were involved in sexual sins, you changed your perception about God and His Word. Now, it is time for you to change your perception about sexual sins.
  • The Lord cannot make you repent or change your mind. The next thing that He said was ‘for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ This means that regardless of what you do, ready or not, repentant or not, the kingdom of heaven is at hand. From here on out, you must decide if you want to live by the grace of God through repentance or not. Decisions determines destiny.
  • The kind of repentance the Lord requires of you is forever repentance. This means that you quit sexual sins forever. Nothing short of this will do. If you are serious about God and the Word, you will walk away from sexual sins forever.

Proverbs 28:13 says,

“He who covers his sins will not prosper, 

but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.” 

  • It is not enough to confess your sins. You have to have the strong determination, unwavering courage, vicious audacity, and a humble willingness to tell your pet sins that you are through. The relationship with sin and the devil is over. It’s quitting time! It’s forsaking time!

Lesson Six: Did You Forgive Yourself?

When Judas betrayed the Lord Jesus, Judas couldn’t get over the fact that he  did the wrong thing. It was a moment where if he would have mustered the courage to wait until afterwards, he might have received forgiveness. To betray Jesus proved to be the most dastardly event of all time that culminating in His crucifixion. Being that the Lord knew that Judas would betray Him, He also knew that he would never seek forgiveness because the Lord indicated that no one would be lost except the “son of perdition” which would be Judas (see John 17:12).

Peter denied the Lord three times (see Matthew 26:34, 69-75). What’s the difference? The difference is in what they did afterwards. When Judas heard that Jesus was condemned, Judas ‘repented himself.’ The Greek definition indicates that Judas “regret” his betrayal of Jesus. Thayer’s Greek Lexicon also indicated “remorse.’ Peter, cussed and swore that he didn’t know Jesus and the cock crowed at the right moment. Peter cried but he didn’t commit suicide.

Hopelessness is a self imposed mentality. As long as you are alive, there is hope. Hope is an expectancy that God will do what He said He would do in His Word. When you came clean about your secret sexual sins, the Lord forgave you on the spot (see 1 John 1:9).

If you are married, your spouse may have forgiven you. If you have children, they may have forgiven you too. The question to ask is that did you forgive you? When it comes to sins that you are ashamed of, you could be you own worse condemner.

To forgive yourself is a moment that would be similar to the prodigal son. For him to admit what he did with his father’s inheritance is a first step. While there is no indication that he forgave himself, for him to return home instead of committing suicide is indicative that he came to grips with the fact that he sinned against God and his father.

The wasteful son had enough sense to even lower himself to a servant’s status just to be home again. He wanted to live and prove to his father, his brother, his servants, and to himself that he could be trusted again. While this is commendable, the real issue about self forgiveness is about ensuring that self guilt and remorse is removed. That repentance is true and that self forgiveness ensures that you are free of every enslaving yoke. Forgiving yourself may be the last hurdle to jump over to experience your complete freedom in Christ.

Lesson Seven: Trigger Mechanisms, Part 1

What starts the ball rolling in your life to commit Secret Sexual Sins? 

  • What are trigger mechanisms? Just like on a weapon, when the trigger is pulled the projectile is released. Potentially, it is the start of an act. Something is going to happen. It is the point of no return when a projectile is released. It is the start of a chain of events that concludes in an occurrence of something. They are things that happen to you that sets off a predictable pattern of finding release and relief. One dictionary calls a trigger ‘an event or thing that causes something to happen.’
  • When you are dealing with Secret Sexual Sins, the last word is always at the root of an occurrence. Sin. In Ephesians 2:3, Paul said,

“…among whom also we once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, 

and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.’

  • The nature of sin cannot be suppressed. In other words, just because something is happening to us, it is not an excuse to fulfill the desires of the flesh and of the mind. So we need to understand that sin must be stopped. You need to understand that the devil has learned about how you handle what happens to you. When things get unbearable, what are you going to do to seek relief and release from the pressure. In other words, you look for some form of temporary escape.
  • That’s why you must manage and gain the superiority over the following:

Lusts of the flesh and eyes

Loneliness

Anger

Frustrations

Bitterness

Disappointments

Disillusionments

Disgruntled or Dissatisfaction

Despondency

Strife

Jealousy

Envy

Success (seeking rewards)

Failure (seeking rewards)

Emotionally wounded spirit and mind

Lesson Eight: Trigger Mechanisms, Part 2

STOP the ball from rolling in your life to commit Secret Sexual Sins! 

Identifying these and other trigger mechanisms will help you to “catch yourself” from engaging in false intimacy. False intimacy is seeking out love and affection to make you feel good. In other words, using false love and intimacy as “medicinal properties” to heal deep wounds of the mind. The flesh gets gratification. The mind gets a signal that the release of sexual tension is complete satisfaction but it is sin. You must remember that there will be lines to cross to heighten the experience. Why? Adrenaline is another hormone that is added to heighten the sexual experience, ending in orgasm. It still ends the same way when sin is involved.

You’ve violated the law of God. Trigger mechanisms is used by the devil to get you to engage in some form of false intimacy. Your flesh, your mind, and the devil doesn’t want you to go to God because a deceptive form of satisfaction and relief is operating as an addiction in your life. The purpose of trigger mechanisms is to establish bondage to sin so that you will never be free (see John 8:32-36). Every time you get angry, you need to find the Word of God.

As an assignment, find a Scripture for every trigger mechanism.

After you have found these Scriptures, it is your job to use these Scriptures as your “moment by moment” maintenance to help you “keep you” or “catch you” from sinning sexually to seek release and relief. The vacuum of or void of emptiness is to be filled with God and the Word of God.

Lesson Nine: Detoxication, Part One

  • In my book, Secret Sexual Sins and other statements that I made, there is a conflict with the complete amount of time I watched porn. I was introduced to porn at a friends house with my other friends at the age of 16. I did watch one or two other movies with soft core porn. Before then, the interest in sex took place in my father’s car. Underneath his seat was a book on sexual positions.
  • I had a ministerial tape on Praise and Worship from the International Pastors And Ministers Conference in Edison, NJ that I had given to a friend of mine. I thought it was the same tape but it wasn’t. Not knowing that the wrong tape was returned to me, as I was about to watch what was supposed to be the Conference, he called me and warned me not to view the tape he returned to me. ‘Whatever you do, do not watch that tape!’, was what I was told. I watched the tape. Several times. It was soft core porn. From that time forward, the addiction to porn came alive in me.
  • One way or another, the addiction was going to come alive. It was just a matter of time.
  • I started my subscription to Directv in 1998. October or November of 2008 was the last time that I bought and watched porn to masturbate. So to be accurate, it was about 10 years. How did I come up with this reduced figure of 1o years of watching porn instead of 14 years? My bill reflects the year my subscription was initiated. Member Since 1998.
  • The intoxication of women and sexual gratification took place over the course of 33 years. December 3, 2009, was the last time I masturbated. Since that time, my flesh cries out for it’s regular fix but they must be subdued constantly or they will overcome me.

QUESTION: What must a man do to detox from sexual gratification?

ANSWER: Radically take command of the thoughts of his or her mind, subdue and have total dominion over the demands of the flesh, and renew the mind with the Word of God.

  • The balance of power must shift from thinking about self gratification to pleasing God. The balance of power must shift from thinking about unhealthy sex to having and maintaining a healthy sex with your spouse. A file dump of demonic thoughts and replace all files with the Word of God. What is detoxification? ‘It is the process of removing toxic substances or qualities’.

Lesson Ten: Detoxication, Part Two

Just as there are natural ways for the removal of toxic substances or qualities from the physical body, there is spiritual ways to accomplish the same goal. To effectively detox yourself from unhealthy sex habits you must completely commit and abandon yourself to do the following.

  1. There must be a willingness to surrender control of what your mind is allowed to see, feed on, and think about (see Romans 12:1-2, Ephesians 4:23, and Philippians 4:8-9).
  1. There must be a willingness to instantly obey the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, and other accountability believers involved in your struggle (see Psalm 119:9-11, 2 Timothy 2:22, 1 Corinthians 6:18-20, 10:13).
  1. There must be a willingness to keep the Word of God at all cost and never sin these sins ever again (see Psalm 119:4-8, Proverbs 28:13, 2 Timothy 2:19).
  1. There must be a willingness to make a covenant with your eyes to never lust after another woman or man (see Job 31:1, Matthew 5:27:30).
  • For several years, it just wasn’t porn alone. I had an eye for women. As with all men, all you have to do is watch where his eyes go and that will determine the level of his eye discipline. It didn’t matter where or what I was looking at. Movies with seductive women. Magazines, catalogues, on the street. A person could never watch porn but over the years, they can accumulate thousands, if not, millions of images, and recall them to gratify themselves. How can a person detoxicate themselves from these images?
  • 2 Corinthians 10:4-5. You must cast down each argument to keep and look at any woman or man to file that image in your mind to gratify yourself later. You must bring every thought into the captive obedience of Christ. It is constant warfare. The enemy will not let up and neither should you. It is the battle of the mind on a moment by moment basis. It is the only way to win until you leave this life.

1 Corinthians 9:27, James 4:7, and 1 Peter 5:8-9a is the mainstay of your life until you leave this planet.

Lesson Eleven: Sobriety 

1 Peter 5:8-9 says,

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 

Resist him steadfast in the faith.”

  • The word “sober” is the Greek word ‘nepho,’ and according to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words, it means, to be free from the influence of intoxicants’. The word “vigilant” is the Greek word “gregoreuo,” and it means “to keep awake.’
  • It’s very easy to go back into old habitual patterns and to fall asleep. The devil is counting on you to slip up just once. Every day, he is planning your little miscues. Your little mistakes. Your flesh is craving for one look. One thought of sexual immorality. Just one! At this stage of the game, you cannot afford one slip.
  • To be sober requires every ounce of discipline. Just like in any military theater of operations, some battles are won or lost because of a lack of these two things in the battle space. Sobriety and vigilance.
  • In Luke 12:38 and Mark 14:38, the Lord Jesus said,

“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.”

“Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. 

The spirit indeed is willing but the flesh is weak.”

  • If the daily battle of the mind and flesh is lost, it is because of a lack of diligence in these two critical and vital areas. Sobriety and vigilance. Are you watching and praying? Though you may be watching and praying, you are being watched by the devil and his angels as prey.
  • Sobriety may also require no sex with your spouse for a season according to 1 Corinthians 7:5, and definitely no sex with yourself forever.
  • Stay alert! Stay focused!

Lesson Twelve: Secrets, Part 1

‘Sometimes, secrecy is the breeding ground for sexual sins’. Page 138 of Secret Sexual Sins.

1. Secret may mean that something is being concealed or kept from the knowledge of others.

2. Covert suggests that something is being done under cover, or concealed as if with a veil or disguise.

3. Clandestine suggests that something illicit or immoral is being concealed.

4. Stealth suggests that someone is deliberately sneaking around and trying to do something without attracting notice.

5. Furtive connotes even more slyness and watchfulness, as revealed not only by movements but by facial expressions.

6. Surreptitious connotes guilt of the person who is acting in a stealthy or furtive manner.

7. Underhanded is the strongest of these words, implying fraud, deceit, or unfairness.

All of these definitions fits the description of a person engaged in sexual sins.

Proverbs chapter seven is there for a reason. Proverbs 7:9 says,

“In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night.”

There is only one thing that must be done.

Exposure!

In Ephesians 5:11-13, Paul said,

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is a 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.”

The strength of a secret is limiting that knowledge of such secrets to as few persons as necessary and by being stealthy. Once a secret is exposed, the secret loses its strength. There are two ways a secret loses its strength. You reveal it through godly sorrow that works repentance or God exposes it.

Lesson Thirteen: Secrets, Part 2

Psalm 90:8 says,

You have set our iniquities before You,

Our secret sins in the light of Your countenance.

Psalm 19:12 says,

Who can understand his errors?

Cleanse me from secret faults.

Secret Sexual Sins gives you a false awareness or sense of security. You know that you are being watched but you ignore this fact. You know that you are going to get caught. It’s just a matter of when. When you were caught occurred in eternity past because God caught you before you were born. The deception is in your complete suppression that nothing bad happened to you. So you look to commit sin again. The secret world you’ve created is never secret to begin with. Especially when God sets our iniquities before Him.

Shame could also cause a person to never admit or confess their secret sins for fear of rejection. The Lord would never reject you. He would embrace you like the prodigal son (see Luke 15:11-31). The Father still looks up the dirt road to see if you would come home because the dirt on your face will never be excuse enough for Him not to run after you, hug you, and kiss you.

Exposure is devastating but when you are in pursuit of sexual satisfaction, you suppress the thought of being caught to achieve pleasure. When you are operating in this level of secrecy and you’ve successfully achieve your objective, it is part of heightening the adrenaline rush to achieve the “acting out” cycle of the sex addiction. The riskier the pursuit, the riskier the sex. This may involve complete abandonment because you have determined that the need for this pursuit would give you the best orgasm you ever had. All that planning for nothing but sin that brought death in your life. You feel disconnected from God because you didn’t care about how God felt about it. Reckless abandonment to fulfill the desires of the flesh and the mind. Only to be disappointed. The disappointment? You’ve sinned again but there is complete mercy when you confess and forsake your sins (see Proverbs 28:13).

If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son cleanses us from all sin (see 1 John 1:7).

Lesson Fourteen: Hypocrisy: Projecting A False Image About Yourself

The real you? Who are you? What are you projecting to others so they can have a good perception about you? What is your true identity and what is not so true about you that you are struggling every day to hide? What defines you as a person is by who you really are when you are by yourself. When you are all alone, you are naked. Nobody can tell. When you are in sin, and when you come outside, hidden behind your physical body is who you are. When you are in Christ, if you are following His precepts, His image becomes imprinted in everything that you do. When you are in sin, the real you is suppressed. Sin is “acting out” who you think you ought to be. A perception of good is just a facade because of the evil habits lurking within after everyone goes their separate ways. A false sense of security is established. You are tense when you are with people for fear they may know who you really are, and relaxed when you are by yourself. Proverbs 13:15 says,

“The way of the transgressor is hard.”

You are living a hard life because haven’t learned how to be happy with God. You select methods to find a place of intimacy with God on your terms. You think that you have it all together. You go home and you look at yourself in the mirror and you know that what you are doing is not who you really are. You have mastered the art of the chameleon.  As long as you change color and blend with the background, you are undetected. You change to hide an image. Secret Sexual Sins is just that. In the bedroom, while you are watching porn and getting off, you are pretending or faking sex with an image. You think you are there but you are not. You engage in false intimacy because you are seeking a reward on your terms. The pleasure is intense but the pains of life is intense as well. You can’t seem to trust God to free you so in secrecy you use medicinal properties to search for intimacy and happiness that will never be satisfied in sin. If you are hiding in sexual sins on purpose, and forcing yourself to live with it, you are a hypocrite. The late Steve McNair and Tiger Woods used their image to emit a false perception to others to hide themselves. Are you like them?

The real definition of who you are is masked by what you do. Bishop Mitchell once said,

“Never let what you do define who you are. God defines who you are.”

The translation is simple. Activities is a way of projecting to others that you are what they think about you. By what you do, you are projecting an illusion. This occurs because you are not comfortable with what you have been doing when no one in the natural is aware of what you are doing. That is deception. Who you are is hidden and for anyone to know what you are really doing when no one is looking would destroy that false image about yourself. The power of sexual sin is secrecy. If nobody knows then nobody gets a surprise. Many would say, ‘How could they have done that?’ It could be because they had a need and didn’t bring that need to the right Person to have that need fulfilled. When a product is broke, if it is repairable, you take it back to the manufacturer for repairs. If the product is beyond repair, you discard it. To undo who you are when you are keeping a sexual sin secretly, you must fall on the stone and let God put you back together again.

Lesson Fifteen: Sexual Trauma

  • There are many believers that experience some form of sexual trauma in their lives. The one place where sexual trauma takes place is early in their lives as children. Rape, child molestation, incest, sibling sexual trauma. Boys that experience sexual trauma sometimes will lean towards a preference of a homosexual lifestyle if they were traumatized by a male. Females will either be open to certain preferences or completely closed to sex altogether.
  • In some cases, when a girl or woman has been raped, when they close themselves to sex, there is a medical condition that takes place that completely closes the inner lining of the vagina wall. They have to have major surgery to open the vagina walls so she could experience a normal healthy sex life with her husband and be able to birth children naturally.
  • In many child molestation cases, the child knows the person. They may be a care giver such as a parent, a guardian, an authority figure, an older sibling.
  • It has also been determined that adultery, although seemingly less traumatic, is historically hereditary. Somewhere in the genealogy or family tree, a person has been involved in an adulterous or promiscuous activity. Certain family lines are almost indistinguishable until you do a detailed study of certain family tree lines.
  • Sexual trauma is common and they are usually part of a person’s secret history. To delve into these hidden compartments may require professional Christian counseling because the emotional pain surrounding these episodes is too much to for the person to bear.
  • That’s why in certain cases, self gratification is used as a “Medicinal Property” to attempt to heal wounds of the soul. That’s why it is important to get to the bottom of these traumatic experiences with patience, love, prayer, the Word of God, and the grace of God.
  • While deliverance is the goal, the combination of God’s power and compassionate Christian counseling will produce the best results. If you are a victim of some kind of sexual trauma, you need to consider seeking professional Christian counseling by your pastor request that your pastor refer you to someone you can feel safe and could trust to help bring healing to your life.

Lesson Sixteen: Dismantling Strongholds 

 

  • The soul or mind has eternal properties consistent with the spirit of man. Except the mind is more connected to your flesh than to your spirit. According to Paul, he prayed that God would preserve our spirit, and soul, and body (see 1 Thessalonians 5:23).
  • The preservation of the these areas is connected to our sanctification recorded in the fourth chapter of 1 Thessalonians, verses 1 through 5. The soul can be a storage place where we burn, like on a CD, millions of thoughts and images. Even during the commission of sexual activities, an imprint is made on the brain to remind us of where we’ve been to get pleasure, and, also to remind us of who we had sex with. These could become compulsive, unmanaged, or addictive habits, and soul ties.
  • The images burned into the brain serves as “place markers” or reminders to us so that when there is a need, a signal, an urge, or an impulse, you know exactly what to do to get those needs fulfilled. The core of a person, his or her spirit, determines the activities. If the spirit man is dark, the activity will be sin. If the spirit is full of light, the activity will be righteousness (see Matthew 6:22-23).
  • In the carnal Christian, if you are governed by the senses, you are ruled by the soul and the flesh. In other words, where there is no governing factor of the Word of God, you will suppress any attempt of the Word to govern, just to engage in sinful activity. These are called “strongholds.’
  • Only the Word, the Holy Spirit, and your willingness to break free can these strongholds be dismantled. Isaiah 10:27 says, “And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.” The yoke is the grip over you because of what is in your mind. To break free, you must take the anointing and dismantle each thought.

Lesson Seventeen: What Makes Sexual Sins Almost Irresistible?

  • The pleasures of the flesh and mind makes sin almost irresistible. It is answering the compulsive call to fulfill a desire. You are acting as a result of an urge or impulse. The only remedy is the grace of God. Remember, you have been redeemed. Your redemption was paid in full by Christ. To stop a compulsive behavior, you need the Savior. When you are given the grace to stop, you will be able to say, “I do not need this anymore.’
  • The moment you rely on the grace of God to do without secret sexual sins, the compulsion loses it power to impose upon you a need to sin. It is replaced with a need to seek God for total satisfaction and fulfillment. The Lordship of Jesus demands no rivals. He’s Lord of all or Lord of none. Compulsive behaviors are to be subdued and you can prevail mightily when the Lordship of Jesus is constantly declared by you.
  • The Bible instructs us of the destructive results of sin but when it comes to the pleasures of this life, we really do not understand what our bodies go through. There is no question that God wants us to enjoy life but He wants us to understand that certain limits are set by God to protect us.
  • As in the Garden of “Pleasure” (that’s what Eden means), pleasure was perverted by the devil. He was able to deceive Eve, get to Adam, and replicate his sinful nature so He could be God. If the devil couldn’t take God down in heaven, he devised a plan to take what God created and be God over it without lifting a finger. Sin had to be pleasurable to make the devil’s subjects loyal to him. Knowing the destructive plan of the devil, the Lord sent His only begotten Son to die for the sins of the whole world. However, I didn’t comprehend that I needed to live without sin. Like Adam and Eve, I needed more than what I thought I was getting.
  • I deceived myself into thinking there must be more. So the search for more in the area of the flesh continued. The results would always be the same. When sin is finished, it brings forth death. In other words, when I finish sinning against my God, I remained unfulfilled or unsatisfied. Why? The brain desires an intensification of the drug called dopamine. Dopamine is a reward drug. When we sin, this drug is released after orgasm but the reward is short lived. The conscience is offended, but we quickly suppress the offended human spirit, the Spirit of God, and the Word of God to get another ‘fix.’
  • The only way to break this is to accept the truth that the power of God is sufficient. That God would be faithful and just to forgive me, and that He alone can completely satisfy the longing in my heart for true intimacy.

Lesson Eighteen, Part 1: The Male Sex Drive

  • The Lord gave man a sex drive for a reason. Stop laughing. When He created Adam and Eve, Jesus reiterated what the Father said in Matthew 19:5-6, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?’ So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” In Genesis 1:28, ‘be fruitful and multiply’ or having children requires sex. The inability to have children doesn’t negate one flesh. Sexual intercourse is becoming one flesh. Since the fall of Adam and Eve, man’s sex drive is out of control. The Lord Jesus walked the earth with one purpose in mind. According to Dr. Archibald Hart, Jesus was sent to redeem everything back to God, including our sexual desires. The new birth and acting on the Word can bring man back to normalcy. We must be satisfied in God first and always. Every good thing that He ordained falls under Him.
  • The purpose of sex is to give pleasure and to procreate. Sex also produces intimacy between a married couple. This requires the quality of love that couples must have for each other. The success of a marriage is not predicated on sex alone. Sex is an important part of marriage but it is not the foundation of marriage. The foundation of marriage is God. Marriage mirrors the heart of the Lord in these categories. Selfless love, sacrifice, faithfulness, commitment, honor, integrity, truth; resulting in happiness, contentment, and joy. Hence, are you making love or having sex. When these things are evident in the relationship, sex is an outward expression of the inner qualities based on the selfless love of God. Sex completes the “one flesh” doctrine of God. Anything that is opposite of these qualities is an opposing nature. Anything that opposes God is from the devil. The sex drive of man, when it was seized illegally by the devil, reproduced a destructive nature. For perversion is an alteration of the original course laid by God.
  • Sex is only authorized for males and females in holy matrimony. You must completely surrender your unhealthy sex life, to the Lord Jesus Christ, and reengage in a normal, healthy sexual life.  This is done by entering into a consensual time away from your spouse to establish sobriety by submitting your mind and body to the lordship of the Word. If you are not married, you still must establish sobriety by making a quality covenant decision to disengage in self sex. Then you must enter into a relationship with the opposite sex in holy matrimony. Sobriety is complete when you are obedient to the Word on a moment by moment basis. In other words, you instantly obey the leading of the Holy Spirit to lead you out and escape from sin.
  • Testosterone is “a steroid hormone that stimulates the development of male secondary sexual characteristics, produced mainly in the testes’ (testicles). It doesn’t take much for a man to be sexually stimulated. All it takes is sight and thought, and a man’s sex drive is initiated. Sexual tension or the desire to release sexual tension is heightened and will either be fulfilled or suppressed.

Lesson Eighteen, Part 2: The Female Sex Drive

  • The driving force behind female sex drives is estrogen. Estrogen is “a general term for female sex hormones that are secreted by the ovary and is responsible for typical female sexual characteristics.”
  • Males excrete testosterone and women excrete estrogen. Ovaries excrete testosterone as well. Because of the emotional makeup of women, desire for sex could be low or high. For men, the desire for sex is undoubtedly higher. For women, sex is a part of her social connection to her spouse. Of course, women experience pleasure because it’s part of her makeup. Women are aware that pregnancy is a part of the sexual experience.
  • The process towards sexual fulfillment will always be different between the sexes. Men will hop in bed and perform because of the physical and neurological makeup of a man. A woman’s need for performance in bed follows a different direction. This is because the process for a woman requires that she have fun, be loved, romanced, cared for, protected, the nurturing of the relationship, connection to her spouse, value, and self esteem. This may seem a long list but it is a justified list. She desires to be safe and secure in the relationship. There is nothing wrong with this because she expects to remain in a monogamous relationship. She is worth this kind of attention because that’s what makes  the pursuit of her worth it all. Additionally, she will not desire sex if other pressing issues predominates her mind. Resolution of issues will usually take a path where a man’s sexual advances is thwarted. She is also aware of her feminine powers. Beauty and sex is a power few men know how to resist. These dynamics is what makes the pursuit of sex a very intricate balancing act.
  • Romance is “a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love.” In the mind of women, romance is part of the sexual experience. Her worth, value, and self esteem is not determined by her sexual experience or romance alone. It is generally determined by her connection to her spouse.
  • While women do have sexual needs, these needs are connected to her ability to feel needed, wanted, and loved by her spouse. Sexual addiction for a woman is real but for different reasons. When these needs aren’t met, there are other options available to her to have these needs met. That’s why social networking, such as the Internet, going out to church, or clubs is an available outlet for women to fulfill these needs. There is considerable risk when fornication, adultery, and lesbian activity is pursued to fulfill a connection need. Sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancies, male rejection, to be ostracize, the legalized killing of a child yet to be born, rape, and molestation, numbering in the millions around the world, are the unfortunate consequences. These deterrences is ignored and the price continues to be significant. Only God’s grace, love, mercy, and looking only to Him for fulfillment and satisfaction is the only solution to enjoy safe, normal sexual fulfillment in a monogamous relationship anchored in holy matrimony.

Lesson Nineteen: Crossing Lines

  • It’s just a matter of time. The devil may have tempted you already to cross another line. For now, you were probably a level one sex addict. According to several sexual treatment centers, there are three levels. On level one, you have the individual that started with line one which is thoughts or fantasies. On line two is masturbation. On line three is pornography. On the last line is prostitutes and affairs. Adultery, if you are married. Fornication if you are single.
  • There comes a time when a man is tired of fantasy because fantasy is just make believe. In other words, you want to be there but you are not. The only way that you can get there is by imagination. You can’t touch them but you can “act out” by touching yourself. The intent of this information is not to give you any ideas. The intent is to give you information on what you used to do because you had no real explanation about what you were doing.
  • Now that you have an explanation, you have to disengage what you used to do to break free. If you fail to break free, eventually, and in some cases, inevitably, you will cross that line, but there is something waiting for you after you cross that line, and it is not glamorous. Is level one sex addiction just based on heterosexual activities? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
  • There is the bisexual scene that is rapidly emerging. Same sex attractions is real. In other words, there is a hidden activity that many spouses may not be aware of. It is a clear and present danger to the family nucleus. It is not just among men. There is also a contingent of married women engaging in bisexual activity as well. While most married women are more loyal to current relationship than most married men, it cannot be entirely ruled out. With STDs, there is an alarming conclusion. According to the CDC (Centers of Disease Control) heterosexual couples is now the primary way the HIV/AIDS virus is transmitted but an adjustment back to homosexual activity as the primary way that HIV/AIDS is transmitted underscores the confusion as to which is the true way HIV/AIDS is transmitted. One thing is for sure, your sin will find you out (see Numbers 32:23). It is not news that there is no known cure for viral infections. Married men are engaging in risky sex with men and they are infecting their spouses.
  • It is a known fact that men acquire HIV/AIDS from infected women. Bisexual activity is just another activity that is gaining increased attention.

 

Lesson Twenty: Understanding Self Gratification Or Masturbation, Pt. 1

  • Self gratification, commonly called masturbation is the most controversial subject area. Many men and women struggle with this area. To stop is almost impossible. The subject itself is controversial enough, but the act itself presents justification questions that many are still seeking definitive answers for. The justification of the practice of masturbation is a very volatile issue for several reasons. Certain married men are unwilling to cross the line into physical adultery. If you are not married, very few will not be disciplined enough to cross the line to fornicate. Self gratification is a sure fire way (pun not intended) not to get a woman pregnant or contract STDs. Many men and women justify masturbation with a fact of truth that there is nothing in the Scriptures that specifically prohibits masturbation. However, many believe that because the Bible is silent, they have the green light to engage in self gratification. Before you breathe, just because the Bible is silent in one area, it doesn’t mean that you have the “green light” to engage in such activities.
  • Males and females engage in self sex as a way to release sexual tension. For men, self sex is often used to intentionally avoid common relational situations in marriage (more on this later). For singles and divorcees, this is a major problem. After a significant time of a lack of physical intimacy, divorced men and women secretly, and knowingly engage in the self release of sexual tension. Married men still engage in self gratification figuring incorrectly that normal heterosexual relations would cure the need for sex. Then, there are married couples that do love each other but one spouse is sick, or the spouse is pregnant, or they have other serious issues that interfere with normal love making. These are real issues that many married and single persons face every day.
  • As a pastor, married since 1982, I struggled for many years with self gratification, commonly called masturbation. My last day of masturbation was on December 3, 2009. At that point, I struggled for 33 years. To come clean was a significant struggle but God forgave me. God ministered grace to me and I am free. I sought freedom for many years. It was a battle that I tried to win on my own and was soundly defeated every time. Perhaps, like many of you, I sought justification to continue in sin that grace may abound, but I found none. My wife was neglected of the true intimacy, commitment, and total fidelity she deserved. She suffered enough. It was time to give her all of my love. Masturbation is selfish. I was having sex with myself. I was not making love. When you cannot control your urges and impulses, it is a compulsive behavior. It’s an addiction because you cannot stop. Masturbation is used for “pharmaceutical” or for “medicinal” purposes (more on this later).
  • Masturbation can feel good but after the deed is done, the conscience is letting you know that something isn’t right. Many married men justify masturbation or self gratification by saying that they are not committing adultery but if they are inundated with thousands porn movies or even memorized certain woman, that’s “sight adultery” committed to memory. A clear violation of Matthew 5:27-30. A pastor once said, ‘I don’t need to watch porn. I have enough porn in my head.’

Lesson TwentyOne: Understanding Self Gratification Or Masturbation, Pt. 2

  • That’s right. Sex or any sexual immorality is connected to people attempting to heal wounds of the soul? Why? Again, you have to go back to the chemical reward system. The two hormones that are released in humans prepare the body for the ultimate reward chemical called dopamine. When a woman experience meaningful touching, oxytocin is released. When a man experience meaningful touching, vasopressin is released. Both of these chemicals is released from the pituitary gland and enters into the blood stream. Testosterone and adrenaline for males assist in the high as well.
  • When either the male or the female reach climax or orgasm, dopamine is released into the blood stream as a reward. For married couples, something else happens. An imprint is made in the brain that this is the person you go to when you want to experience this feeling again. It’s part of establishing the soul tie. The brain remembers the first experience and places a “pin on the map.’ 
  • With unmarried couples, the same chemical process occurs except the body is in violation of the law of God called ‘one flesh.’ They do not get away ‘Scot free.’ In 1 Corinthians 6:18, Paul says, “Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.” So when a male and female commit sexual immorality outside of the confines of holy matrimony, they sin against their own bodies. The conscience emits a signal that the body committed a sexual sin. If an unmarried couple engage in sex, they are opening themselves up to releasing and contracting STDs. Especially when they’ve had more than one sexual episode with other sexual partners. STDs is consequential judgment.
  • When masturbation takes place, what felt good now feels bad. Why does it feel bad? The physical body is emitting the signal that it sinned. When you are masturbating, you are manually stimulating yourself to the point of no return. You are having sex with yourself. That’s a violation of the law or principle of God called “one flesh.’ Your body was created to share with your spouse, not with yourself according to 1 Corinthians 7:2-5. Sex is designed by God to establish the “one flesh” principle. You cannot be one flesh apart from a spouse. In sex, it is also a sharing of each other’s love for one another. When you are engaging in self sex, you cannot share in the “aftermath” of sex. The aftermath of sex is the place where continuity of the relationship is also consummated.
  • While self gratification will never yield sickness and disease such as STD’s, the conscience is still violated because the flesh engaged in sin. Compulsive masturbation, as well as feeding this compulsion through lust or fulfilling the desire to long for that which is forbidden, carries the penalty of Galatians 6:8. “For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption,” 

Lesson TwentyTwo: Understanding Self Gratification Or Masturbation, Pt. 3

  • Women engage in self sex for similar reasons but there are other elements in play. Women are susceptible to touch and when she isn’t married, sex toys become her substitute. Loneliness for a woman is just as real for her as a man. Again, masturbation is a violation of the law of God called ‘one flesh.’ Women have intimacy needs. When it comes to relationships, for women, it’s about being connected. Sex for her, serves as her way of meeting her intimacy needs that fulfill her emotional and spiritual connection she desires from a man. However, self sex could lead to compulsive sexual behavior.
  • Remember what the Lord told Eve? “Your desire shall be for your husband.’ According to Strong’s Greek and Hebrew Definitions, the word “desire” in the Hebrew means “stretching out after.’ So in a marriage situation, she will have a desire or a longing for her husband. This longing will include sex but primarily, it is the relational connection she desires. That’s why communication or talking is a major part of her life because that’s how she connects. Talking is not just about a man’s world, she communicates to express herself to fulfill the need to be heard, understood, valued, esteemed, and most importantly, loved. Her beauty is found in two places. The body serves as a visual attraction, then her inner personality serves as a relational attraction. There’s more about her than the bedroom.
  • When a spouse is physically neglected of sex, it is a form of rejection. She is looking to you to fulfill her all inclusive needs but you constantly reject her. Usually when a couple is experiencing any conflict resulting in disconnection, you could trace it to not paying her any attention, arguments over finances, negative “on the job” experiences, and other issues. If they have children, the husband will feel neglected because the wife is engaged in the care of the children. Sex is far from her mind. When children do arrive, priorities will change. However, just because priorities change, it is not a good reason to disengage in maintaining the bond of holy matrimony. Self gratification or masturbation is used as substitute sex. It leads to dissatisfaction every time. Why? That’s because it violates the law or principle of God called ‘one flesh.’
  • A man has to learn or understand the needs of his spouse without being frustrated, angry, or unappreciated. How could he understand his wife and get his needs fulfilled so he could avoid, and abolish self gratification from his life forever? He must “mutually compromise and sensibly negotiate” to make the marriage work. It is not all one sided. Women play a role as well. They must compromise and negotiate, and stand down as well. A woman could be just as selfish as a man. The demands that she may impose upon her spouse could also be a tipping point in a relationship. The last thing that a woman is to do is drive her man into the bosom of another woman. So she may have to tone down or eliminate her strong-headed approach to her spouse. While it is no excuse for a man, any reason for your husband to engage in infidelity should never be given.

Lesson TwentyThree: Understanding Self Gratification Or Masturbation, Pt. 4

  • There are certain ‘trigger mechanisms’ that start the ball rolling towards fulfilling the desires of the flesh and the mind. Trigger mechanisms coincide with your emotional state. Most men are unaware of what happens in the flesh and mind. When sin is committed, it is usually too late. It’s too late when you cross the line of criminal activity or “act out” as a level three sex addict. It’s too late when you are divorced because of an affair or series of adulterous relationships. It’s too late when you do not identify your trigger mechanisms. Unlike Ted Bundy, understanding your urges and impulses, and understanding the role your emotions play will go a long way to establishing an understanding of how you function and hopefully establish discipline and deterrence.
  • Trigger mechanisms such as anger, rejection, frustration, failure, success, current or past episodes of sexual molestation trauma, or other problems in your life could potentially drive you to the place where self gratification or sexual acting out is used to temporarily ease the pain. These trigger mechanisms must never govern your sex drive. Deterrence is just a starting point. Primarily, there must be a reconnection to God by reestablishing a right relationship, consistent with His characteristic or nature of holiness.  Secondarily, if you are married, a reconnection to your spouse must be reestablish towards experiencing a healthy marital relationship. If the primary connection or relationship with the Lord isn’t reestablished, the secondary relationship with your spouse will never be reestablished. Disciplining the flesh and subduing the thoughts, and fantasies of the mind require you to accept these conclusions.

Scriptural Conclusions:

  1. According to Genesis 2:20-25, you cannot be one flesh by yourself. Sex is authorized for male and female that is joined in holy matrimony. Self sex is a solo act. Self gratification, commonly called masturbation, is a violation of the law or principle of God called ‘one flesh.’ 
  1. According to Paul, in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, homosexuals “cannot inherit the kingdom of God.’ According to Pastor Roger Jamison, masturbation is the first level of homosexual activity. Masturbation is self sex. If you are a man, you are doing you. If you are a woman, you are doing you. Porn & masturbation is false intimacy.
  1. According to 2 Timothy 3:1-5, self gratification qualifies as “…lovers of themselves…” also known as self love. If you cannot stop, you are out of control or compulsive. “…without self control…’ and you are “…loves pleasures more than you love God.’
  1. According to John 1:14, 2 Corinthians 5:21, and Hebrews 4:14-16, the sexual discipline of the Lord Jesus is the achievable bench mark of holiness for all believers. We are free from every enslaving yoke, including self sex. If Jesus never masturbated or gratified His flesh, you can do the same. Therefore, by His grace and example, you can be free because the Son is free.

Lesson TwentyFour: Self Control

  • When we were born again, the Lord took the old nature out (see 2 Corinthians 5:17 and Titus 3:5), we became new creatures in Christ. Regenerated by the Holy Spirit. As sinners, we were out of control. Therefore, we needed to be brought back under control. The new birth is about living a controlled lifestyle from God’s perspective.
  • The devil is out of control. He desired to be like God but there could only be one God. Therefore, created beings must know its limitations. The war that took place in heaven was a violent struggle to assume control of heaven (see Revelation 12:7-12, Isaiah 14:12-17, and Ezekiel 28:12-19). To assume control of heaven, it required dethroning God. It required the demise of God. There is no question that the devil wanted to kill God to achieve his objective. War is the use of force to compel your enemy to submit to your will. Depending on the objective, there has to be justification for war. In the case of the devil, the justification was with an evil intent. He was out of control when iniquity was found in him (see Ezekiel 28:15).
  • When Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Pleasure, the same nature of the devil entered the heart of man (see 1 John 3:4-15). Evidence of man’s lack of control is observed in Genesis 6:5. This is the first time that we see the Lord apologizing for making man. Thank God that Noah found grace in His face.
  • The whole intent of the new birth is to bring man back under control. Jesus lived a controlled, sinless life. As a result of living a controlled, sinless life, He was able to save us with His perfect life, and sinless blood. He shed His blood to pay the price for man’s sin so that we can have eternal life. Before we die, we need to maintain our salvation. We do this by living the kingdom principles given to us in the Bible (see Matthew 7:21-27). We do this by walking in the Spirit (see Galatians 5:16). You have the fruit of the recreated human spirit within you (see Galatians 5:22-25). One of which is called “self control.’
  • When the Lord came into your life, He placed within you “self control.’ That means that you can control yourself. Vine’s Expository Dictionary expounds on “self control” as “…the right use demands the controlling power of the will under the operation of the Spirit of God; in 2 Peter 1:6, it (“self control”) follows, ‘knowledge,’ suggesting that what is learned requires to be put into practice.”
  • Like Paul, we subdue and bring our bodies into subjection (see 1 Corinthians 9:27). That’s the intent of this journal. To help you bring your will under the subjection of the Holy Spirit. To receive the knowledge contained in the Word of God and to put into practice what you were taught, so that you can be a person under control.

How will you know that you have learned the lesson?

When you do not have to repent for the same sin anymore! 

Lesson TwentyFive: Castration: Depravation Of Power

  • If you are going to win, you must be willing to cut it off! I’m not telling you to physically mutilate yourself. Castration is the physical removal of the testicles. This is not what you are to do. The castration that I’m talking about is the external devices that many men and women use to enter into the secret world of sexual immorality. Castration is also called the crucified life. In Matthew 5:29-30 (NCV), the Lord Jesus said,

“If your right eye causes you to sin, 

take it out and throw it away. It is better to lose one part of your body

 than to have your whole body thrown into hell.

If your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. 

It is better to lose one part of your body 

than for your whole body to go to hell.

  • The Lord isn’t implying that you physically remove body parts. This is an extreme spiritual maneuver to cut off anything to keep you from sinning. This extreme spiritual maneuver requires outside help and must be implemented as part of your ongoing recovery from Secret Sexual Sins. To harbor Secret Sexual Sins demands no accountability. Accountability demands that you have “other eyes” on your life for accountability to be genuine.

Paul said in Colossians 3:5 (AMP),

“So kill (deaden, deprive of power) the evil desire lurking in your members

[those animal impulses and all that is earthly in you that is employed in sin]:

sexual vice, impurity, sensual appetites, unholy desires, and all greed and covetousness, for that is idolatry (the deifying of self and other created things instead of God).”

  • What are the physical items that you must remove or avoid to keep from sinning? Is it the desktop computer, the laptop, the iPad, iPhone, cellphone, the TV, cable, satellite, DVD’s, movie theaters, and any other thing that has a connection to keeping Secret Sexual Sins alive. Including substitute porn like magazines, catalogues, and other items depicting images that seem sexy. If you find yourself looking lustfully at other women when operating these devices, you are committing adultery in your heart. To win in this conflict, you must cut them out and cut them off. If you are not willing to cut these things from your life when you know that you cannot help yourself, relapse is just a matter of time. The writer of the book of Hebrews said in Hebrews 12:4 (AMP),

“You have not yet struggled and fought agonizingly against sin, nor have you yet resisted and withstood to the point of pouring out your own blood.”

The Lord is looking for you to use extreme measures to keep yourself from sinning.

Lesson TwentySix: True Intimacy versus False Intimacy

  • When it comes to true intimacy, you must remember that the Lord created you in His image, for His pleasure (see Revelation 4:9-11). The Lord Jesus mentioned to the woman at the well that the Father seeks true worshippers that will worship Him in spirit and in truth (see John 4:23-24). All things were created for Him (see Colossians 1:15-18). We were created to have fellowship with the Father through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ (see 1 John 1:3). The foundation of true intimacy is having an intimate relationship with the Father, through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Then the Lord created male and female to be fruitful and multiply. We were made to have pleasure and procreate. This requires propagating by the “one flesh” principle. This requires physical intimacy. In other words, sex. There is a difference between making love and having sex. When you are having sex, it is pleasure that remains on the physical level. When you are making love, physical contact is made but the foundation is the value you place on the person you are involved with. There is mental and spiritual relationship that establishes a deep connection called a “soul tie.’ The soul tie is deeper than skin. Soul ties involves relating to each other, spirit, soul, and body (see 1 Corinthians 6:15-20).
  • False intimacy remains on the physical. True intimacy taps into all levels of a person creating a soul tie that is deeper than what you experience between the sheets. You know the person on an intimate level. This is not just the uncovering the person’s physical nakedness. It goes beyond that. You are vulnerable. Your spouse knows everything about you and still seeks to know more. There are some things that you still may not know about your spouse that has yet to be explored, experienced, and uncovered.
  • When a man or woman searches for intimacy through sex alone, they are searching for something deeper. They really do not understand that the yearning in their hearts will never be satisfied in the sack with a physical body. The yearning in the heart is about worship. God placed the longing in our hearts to worship Him. The longing to be in the presence of God is the only place where we will achieve complete satisfaction.
  • False intimacy has a yearning too, but it is only on the physical level. Sexual immorality is a complete malfunction of true intimacy. False intimacy will never desire to relate with anyone. False intimacy is selfish and only has one desire. To satisfy the ego. Self satisfaction or gratification is false intimacy that only leads to one thing, more lust.
  • True intimacy is complete satisfaction without the ill affects of sin. True intimacy will always look to God for complete satisfaction. True intimacy looks to please others at the expense of pleasing yourself. True intimacy recognizes that false intimacy is like a carrot on a stick that you will never taste. Therefore, we must look to be satisfied in God, then all other legal means of true intimacy is permitted.

Lesson TwentySeven: The Devil’s Doctrine Of Demonic Seduction

  • Demonic seduction is on the billboards, immoral women on the streets, the job, the movies, and the Internet. The devil knows that we are image minded. The suggestion is all that is necessary. The only thing that is left is for a person to make the choice to ponder the suggestion. The Garden of Pleasure would be the place where the law of sin and death would be birthed. We have been given sight, thought, and the power of choice. If we see it. If we think it, we are left with a choice to do something about it or do nothing about it. The devil cannot be successful unless we make a choice to agree with his suggestion. The power of a person’s choice is the difference in life. It is the last line of offense or defense.
  • Where the devil wins is when we do not know the Word of God. Where the devil wins is when we know what the Word says and he successfully argues that this is not what God meant. Where the devil wins is when we accept the devil’s version instead of God’s Word. The Word is not an alternative. The Word is not a suggestion. The Word is a law, principle, commandment, precept, righteous judgment, and testimonies.
  • Therefore, seduction is a suggestion. Certain names of females will always set off bells in a man’s heart and mind because these women are professional seducers. Their job is to turn your head to get you to look at them. They do not want you to touch them. They only want to exhibit their passive power to get you to look at them. When you resist them every time, their seductive power is annulled.
  • Even in conversations. Simple conversations that seductive women have with men could cause a man to fall. Certain seductive mannerisms, phases, laughter, and conversational play is their way to get you to enter into their world of foreplay. Foreplay for a man is petting, touching, and caressing. Foreplay for a woman is to look and sound sexy. The combination of the two produces a volatile mixture of sexual immorality.

Proverbs 6:23-26 says,

For the commandment is a lamp, and the law a light;

      Reproofs of instruction are the way of life, to keep you from the evil woman,

      from the flattering tongue of a seductress. Do not lust after her beauty in your heart, nor let her allure you with her eyelids. For by means of a harlot

      A man is reduced to a crust of bread andan adulteress will prey upon his precious life.

  • The more the Word of God is in your heart and mind, the more you will protect yourself against the passive power of the seductress. If it is a prostitute, all she wants is your money. If it is an adulteress, all she wants is your life. Resist seduction. Resist every attempt by the devil to seduce you to sin against God.

Lesson TwentyEight: Understanding The Power Behind Sexual Attraction

  • When any one feels bad, sex is a great way to get a pick up, or emotional high. Again, it’s a reward. When you are down, you want to get up. Sex or the release of sexual tension helps the soul and body feel loved, intimate, and cared for. Sex is only authorized between male and female in holy matrimony. You have a right to voice your opinion but where a law or principle of God is in place, your opinions do not count. Women are different in that they are relational then sexual. Their fulfillment comes from feeling that emotional connection to their mate and the man is “rewarded” for providing the woman with feeling connected spiritually, emotionally, and then physically. For woman romance is connection. For men, sex is connection. Give the spouse romance, and the connection will never be a problem. Give the man sex, and the connection is never a problem. If any of these is missing, you are just having sex, not making love. Men are sexual and need to learn how to be relational. The fall in the Garden of Eden or Pleasure significantly reduced, if not altogether, deteriorated his ability to engage in a relationship with his spouse, other humans, and God.
  • The Lord said that, “It is not good that man should be alone. I will make him a help meet for him.” Hence, we see that based on what the Lord said, man was never created to have sex by himself. Many men disengage from the spouse because he has failed to shut down the selection switch. For many men, the eyes is always in search mode. The search mode for sex, if they do not disengaged the eyes, one thing will lead to another towards engaging in extramarital relations just for sex. As I was studying “Treating Sex Addiction” The search mode in men is “part of the foreplay” in the mind of a man. A man can have sex in his mind before he has sex in bed. The Lord Jesus called this “adultery” of the heart. If you look at a woman to lust after her, you’ve committed adultery with her in your heart.
  • To disengage the eyes, a moment by moment strategy must be employed. If the mind is distracted, it can disengage the immediate need for sexual gratification. Women dress provocatively because it is their way of attracting attention. They know this. So they will go as far as they can to attract a man for attention. Sex is power but you do not have to come under its grip if you are not married. To avoid the grip of attraction, you must “pluck out your eye and cut off your hand.’ It doesn’t mean that you are to naturally remove any of your organs.
  • By the grace of God, you can radically subdue and have dominion over your flesh and mind. You can train the mind and flesh to avoid observation. It’s also called “escape and evading” capture. Attractive women are every where. It seems like you can’t escape, much less evade. Jesus was successful. He never sinned one time with His eyes (see Hebrews 4:14-16). Neither did Job (see Job 31:1 and 9-12).
  • What are you willing to do to employ the strategy of escape and evade?

Lesson Twentynine: Understanding Sin versus Sexual Addiction

  • There are many people that blame their sinful lifestyle on a chemical addiction or imbalance. Without getting argumentative, sin is always the reason behind any addiction. An addiction is defined as “the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity.” In other words, there is a specific inclination or preference a person craves or desires to satisfy a particular need but the mental or fleshly desires that drives a person towards a specific addiction has a point of origin.

Psalm 51:5 says, “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.” 

James 1:14-15 says, “But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

  • Sin is lawlessness (see 1 John 3:4). Sin is a violation of the character and nature of God. Sin opposes God. Sin is wrongdoing. Sin has only one conclusion. Death or severance from life. When it comes to sexual sins, an addiction is caused when you cannot control or manage yourself. It becomes a compulsive behavior. In other words, the urges and impulses cannot be told “No!” or stop, and stay stopped. The emotions and circumstances driving the emotions, push you over the edge. Failures as well as success can push a man to reward himself. When an intimacy need is unmet, he or she goes to places where they act as a “pharmacist” to meet that need. Some women that are sex addicts will offer sex to satisfy the relational needs of her life. Offering up one for the other. There is a way where sexual release is authorized. Between male and female in holy matrimony but sex is not just about releasing sexual tension. It is about pleasure and procreation that produces a sanctified bond between two persons that genuinely care for each other.
  • A sex addict could “act out” sexually without navigating relationships that have meaning and value. Sexual addictions could be very depraved and empty. Most sex addicts use sex as “medicinal properties” or as a “pharmacist” attempting to conjure up a sexual experience to heal a wound or wounds of the soul. Sexual addiction is a very lonely place where satisfaction is sought but never achieved. That’s why sin is a very lonely place. Sin’s only remedy is Christ.
  • In Christ, you can be reconciled and brought back into fellowship with the Father. Only Christ can fully satisfy the thirsty soul. Just ask the woman at the well in Samaria in John chapter 4.

Lesson Thirty: The Death Of Pride

Proverbs 8:13 says, “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil, pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and the perverse mouth I hate.”

  • The position of the Lord is clear. We are to hate evil, pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and the perverse mouth. The NLT calls the perverse mouth, ‘perverted speech.’ Perverse or perverted speech is opposite of the speech of the Lord, Perverse speech is devil talk. The source of perverted speech is the devil. The source of pride is the devil. So when we are no longer teachable, we will speak perverse speech.
  • When you start talking against the Word of God, you are perverse. You have arrogance in your heart. The Hebrew word defines arrogance as “pomp, haughtiness’. One dictionary defines arrogance as an exaggerated sense of one’s own ability. When you believe that no one can teach you anything, you believe that you can teach yourself. When this occurs, committing sin, especially secret sexual sins, is not far behind.
  • Pride dies when you start receiving the Word of God in the areas where you are having difficulty receiving. When a person is having difficulty receiving the Word, it is because they are hiding their personal secret sexual sins or other sins that no one should or ought to know about. What this does is that increases the boldness of an individual.
  • When a person does this, it’s intent is to give the appearance that he or she can do no wrong. That’s why God’s exposure is merciless. True repentance or change of your perception is the only way pride must die. If you are unwilling to relinquish evil, pride, arrogance, the evil way, and the perverse mouth, you will never escape secret sexual sins.
  • You must remember, this is the order of the devil. Evil, pride, arrogance, the evil way, perverse or perverted mouth and speech. If you are in Christ, these things must not be in you. ‘Submit yourself to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you,’ James 4:7.
  • Proverbs 29:23 says, “A man’s pride will bring him low, but the humble in spirit will retain honor.” The Message Bible says, “Pride lands you flat on your face; humility prepares you for honors.” Sexual sins is about the pride that is in your heart. It must be broken. Otherwise you will be brought low. You must never underestimate how God will work in your life to destroy pride and arrogance.
  • Sometimes, you ignore the fact that pride and arrogance is working in you. All you have to do is look at yourself in the mirror every morning and ask yourself, “What sin or sins did I commit that I am not willing to let God break in me?”  If you do not fall on the stone to be broken, the stone will fall on you and grind you into powder (see Matthew 21:44).
  • That’s why it is important that you live by 1 John 2:15-17.

Lesson ThirtyOne: Recycling – The Fool’s Cycle, Pt. 1

Proverbs 13:19-20 says,

A desire accomplished is sweet to the soul, 

but it is an abomination to fools to depart from evil.

In other words, it is detestable for a fool to walk away from evil. Why?

The answer is in Proverbs 26:11 (NKJ) & (MSG).

As a dog returns to his own vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.

As a dog eats its own vomit, so fools recycle silliness.

When it came to secret sexual sins in my own life, there were certain things that I was not willing to do. I recycled my sin. I recycled my folly. It was time to stop the fool’s cycle. At the very top of the list was self gratification, commonly called masturbation. To give this up would interfere with my personal way of providing love, affection, affirmation to my life without the pain of relationships. What are pains of relationships? Pains of relationships is dealing with people that may or may not have your best interest in mind. Whether they are truthful or not, you allow the devil to deceive you into thinking that you cannot trust them. Why? During the past or current relationships, we believe that everybody is out to hurt us. We become very protective of the core of our lives. When we are tired of experiencing pain, we run to the nearest hiding place. A big part of that hiding place is the room of false pleasure. We want to feel good and we deceive ourselves into thinking that releasing sexual tension is the anecdote. Then it becomes a stronghold of the enemy that seems hopeless to break.

To keep what you have been doing for so long and then have to give it up, is a deception. It’s a lie. The embracing that lie is getting in the way of the truth. Trusting the truth requires you to let go of the lie of false intimacy. Making a decision to be free is the starting point. This is when you let go of the lies and deceptions, and accept the truth. The lie of false intimacy is that no one will ever love you like you could. Trust no one else, including God. Here are some more lies of the devil. ‘No one will be able to satisfy that need. What you need is release of sexual tension. This will make you feel better.’ Lies! Lies! Lies! When you are not ready to give sin up, you are like a dog returning to its vomit. You are recycling silliness. You are considering departing from evil as an abomination or as a detestable thing. Freedom in Christ is far better than making a life of folly the longest running show on foolishness. All the while, the devil is laughing at you because if you were to ever come to your senses, you would kick him and his false intimacy to the curb. In Christ, there is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. You can break this cycle, in Jesus’ name!

Lesson ThirtyTwo: Recycling – The Fool’s Cycle, Pt. 2

The choice of the word “fool” is very harsh. Especially when name calling was a part of your childhood experiences. Negative childhood experiences could be obvious or subtle trigger mechanisms. Sometimes, it is reason enough to look for a way to feel better about yourself. You look to some form of cycle. The sexual addict’s cycle. When you feel bad about yourself, you think about thoughts that make you feel good or thoughts that are pleasurable. These thoughts set in motion the fleshly pursuit of escaping the emotional trauma. Be assured that God knows how wounded you are but he is not afraid to tell you the truth about what you are doing. The intent is to stimulate you into thinking about what you are doing but He never does this without giving you the “way out” option. God is not in league with the devil to trip you up. God is doing the opposite. He lets you know that you are a fool but you can become wise. Therefore, it’s not the name that you should be concerned about alone. It is the definition of a fool that you need to be concerned about. While the stigma is painful, if you want to be healed of this stigmatization, all you have to do is be wise. You’ve made a choice to be a fool. You can make a choice to be wise.

Just as the man at the pool of Bethesda was asked if he wanted to be made whole, all he had to do is make a choice. You can stay in a condition or you can be released from that condition if you make a choice to be made whole. Therefore, the alternative to being a fool is to be wise. Foolishness is detrimental to your life. When you have the choice to be wise, it is best to select wisdom.

According to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of OT Words, the word “fool” means to be “stupid fellow; dull person; fool.” The Lord is God. When He created us in His image, man was never created to be foolish. It was only until man fell that foolishness came into being. When Christ came, it was with the clear intent to restore man back to wisdom. Christ is the wisdom of God (see 1 Corinthians 1:24). Christ became for us wisdom (see 1 Corinthians 1:30). The wisdom of this world is foolishness (see 1 Corinthians 3:19). When we are born again, we have the mind of Christ (see 1 Corinthians 2:16). To stop secret sexual sins, you must cross over from being a fool to being wise in Christ. The plan of God for your life is walk in freedom, in Christ, with His wisdom operating on the inside of you. Wisdom is the “domain of the wise in Christ.” When you have found that you do not need to sin in foolishness, you have found wisdom of God.

Proverbs 9:10 says,

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, 

and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Proverbs 1:7 says,

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, 

but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Lesson ThirtyThree: Understanding Shame, Part One

According Patrick Carnes’ ‘Cycle of Addition,’ the last event that takes place after “acting out” a sexual situation or self gratification is “shame or remorse.’

Shame is defined as, a painful feeling of humiliation or distress caused by the consciousness of wrong or foolish behavior.

Remorse is defined as “deep regret or guilt for a wrong committed.’

The complete process of sin begins with the rewards or the accomplishment of pleasure. The suppression of guilt, remorse, or the pain that it would cause God, you, and those that may be involved is self removed and intentionally locked into a compartment where your feelings (conscience) is suppressed because the ‘benefits’ of gratification outweigh the penalty.

James 1:15 says, ‘Sin, when it is finished, brings forth death.’

Sinning against God brings a separation of man from God. Man must make a conscious decision to walk away from the Lord to commit sin. After sin is committed, the conscience will tell you that you did wrong. For a brief moment, the desire to settle the issue of sin is before you. You have the opportunity to ask for forgiveness and turn away from sin forever, or to continue the cycle.

The other side of the story is that sexual sins is kept secret because you are ashamed that you’ve stooped to this level of sin. Instead of getting help, the secret continues because you have an image before people to protect. When others are aware that you are involved in secret sexual sins, a choice must be made. You must choose to continue in hypocrisy or get help. Shame is the one thing that keeps many men and women from getting help.

For the most part, you believe that you can help yourself out so that others will not need to know about what you have done. To save face, you believe that their knowledge of what you’ve done should be kept silent. When it comes to deliverance from sin, you will not care about what you look like before the people.

What matters most is what God is doing to restore you to a place of righteousness in Him where intimacy with God returns. What matters is that you stop hurting God.

Admission of sexual sins is very tough to reveal. Shame hurts. Shame is painful but when you are ready to get help, you need to get past the embarrassment, the shame, and the potential to look bad in front of people to get the help you need so that God can deliver you and set you free. At this point, it’s not about teaching or preaching to others.

It’s about getting the help you need but first let’s deal with the shame and remorse.

Lesson ThirtyFour: Understanding Shame, Part Two

You have already noticed that every time you commit sexual sins that it may have felt good but like strong drink, it goes down smooth but in the end it bites. That’s what sin does. Shame keeps us from breaking the cycle of sexual sins because of the pleasures associated with sexual sins. The bite at the end is the remorse and shame, however, godly sorrow works repentance (see 2 Corinthians 7:9-12). To keep what you are doing as a secret is part of the shame. You do not want people to know that you are doing such things because of the negative stigmatization assigned to sexual sins.

Self gratification, commonly called masturbation, is a person’s private world of self pleasure. It is his or her secret world of false intimacy where shame is suppressed to wrongly satisfy the urges and impulses of the flesh.

However, remorse and shame is short lived because there is no involvement of turning from secret sexual sins. The feeling is easily suppressed when the thought of pleasure reemerge. There is no settling of the issue. Just suppression of guilt and shame. The intent of repentance is to move you to the place where you understand that the Lord is grieved. Sin is a violation of the known will of God. Sin is a violation of the character of God. Sexual sin is a violation of your body, created by and for God.

The creation of God is governed by the original intent within the mind of the Creator. When creation acts contrary to the design of the Creator, consequences must take place. For instance, when an airplane has to be maintained a certain way, to avoid catastrophic events, the maintenance required must be complied with to the letter.

Shortcuts, and the use of unauthorized maintenance practices places an undue risk upon those that will fly in that aircraft the next time. Substitute parts or using other tools that is required is a violation of maintenance practices that is clearly articulated in the manual. Going beyond the scheduled maintenance is also a violation of proper maintenance procedures.

The risk of a crash is too great.

It is the same with sin. The risk of sinning continuously is too great. It may seem like it’s an acceptable risk but it isn’t. Shame is designed to instruct you that the act that you’ve committed is wrong or foolish, however, to break any cycle, shame must be followed by repentance. That is, a conscious decision must be made to deter, resist, and desist.

We all know that sin is wrong. It is defiance against the known will of God. What keeps a person in a cycle is knowing that false intimacy is a false reward. Pleasure may be a reward but God established a way for pleasure to be achieved. It is within the bonds of holy matrimony that sexual pleasure is permitted. Therefore, to avoid shame, a person must stop sinning. To avoid sinning again, you need to get past the embarrassment, and get help.

Lesson ThirtyFive: Moment By Moment Discipline

In John chapter 8 and verse 29, the Lord Jesus said these words,

“And He who sent Me is with Me. 

The Father has not left Me alone, 

for I always do those things that please Him.”

 

  • One of the most important aspects about repentance and grace is learning how the Lord Jesus lived on the earth without sin. I often wondered how He was able to do it until the Spirit of God asked me something.
  • What have you been doing on a moment by moment basis? Then I realized that I spent more time with the world than with God and His Word.
  • I had to change the amount of time I was spending with the world. I changed my perspective. The worldly newspaper had to go. The TV shows with sexual content, they had to go. The constant looking for women to lust after so I can “file” it for later to masturbate off of, that behavior had to go.
  • All these things must be cut off if I was to be successful. Success or failure is determined by what you are meditating on according to Joshua 1:8 and Isaiah 26:3-4. I needed to destroy the “time wasters” and “content stealers’. The things that preoccupied my mind is what determines what I think about during the day and during the night.
  • You must keep a watch over your thought life. A watch over your sight life. A watch over your flesh life. If you are going to win the battle over Secret Sexual Sins, you must take the time to watch how your mind works. You must watch yourself every nano second because that’s all the mind, the flesh, and the devil needs to start you down the path towards fulfilling the desires of the flesh and mind.
  • My victory or my defeat is sealed when I initiate taking charge of my mind or permit my mind to wander. To guard against failure, vigilance must be employed every moment of your life. The devil doesn’t let up. Your flesh doesn’t let up. Therefore, you must never let up.

Lesson ThirtySix: Think On These Things

  • Dr. Archibald Hart said that if you are caught in the trap of thinking about sex, if you were to preoccupy the mind with thoughts other than sex for 15 minutes, the mind disengages. In other words, the cycle to make provision for the flesh to fulfill its lusts discontinues. Most men engage in fulfilling themselves when they are disappointed that the natural way of sexual satisfaction wasn’t achieved. For instance because of multiple episodes of masturbation or extra marital affairs, when it is time for real sexual intimacy with your wife, sometimes a man would be unable to perform sexually with his spouse, and he fails to ejaculate. After the wife goes to sleep, his mind is still thinking about the end game. He didn’t ejaculate. So you and I know what is next. Masturbation.
  • This occurred regularly in my life. The preoccupation of my mind to satisfy myself was so strong that I didn’t have any control to say stop. Fulfillment had to occur by force. Otherwise my mind and body would feel dissatisfied. Do not get any ideas because this is not the intent. The intent is to get you to see that if you can disengage the mind from thinking about sex and achieving sexual gratification by masturbation, you can return to sexual normalcy or sobriety.
  • Here’s what you need to do. Premeditation is the ability to think or plan out beforehand. In other words, before you do something, plan it in advance. This is what happens when you intend to sin. The same energy that you use to plan to sin is the same amount of energy that you use to plan righteousness. Here’s a two step plan to follow.

1. Think on these things (Philippians 4:8-9).

  • ‘True, noble or honorable, just, pure, lovely, good report, excellent, and praiseworthy…meditate on these things…and the God of peace will be with you.’

2. Meditate on the Word of God night and day (Joshua 1:8).

  • Then you shall prosper and have good success. Immediately stop your mind from thinking on false, not honorable, unjust, impure, ugly, and bad reports, bad, and condemnable. Stop meditating on sexual immorality. When you are driving and you approach a red light, what do you do? You stop. You can stop your mind and body. It is a matter of discipline and depending on God’s grace to help you (see Hebrews 4:14-16). Stop your mind from going any further into thinking about sexual sins. Don’t meditate on anything else but the Word of God. Then you shall prosper and have good success!

Lesson ThirtySeven: His Grace, Not Your Ability, Part One

  • The biggest mistake that many men and women make after experiencing a few days of freedom is that they think that they did it themselves. If you are not careful, you will do the same. After a few days, you think that you have everything under control. Your shout is strong and you got the enemy licked. All of a sudden, the urges get stronger. The impulse to sin gets stronger. Your mind goes into a series of sexual thoughts you thought would never come again.
  • Now, what are you going to do? Are you going to give in to those impulses and urges or are you going to depend upon the grace of God? Grace is not about leaning on yourself. Grace is about leaning entirely on the favor of God, His Word, and the influence of the Holy Spirit.

Paul said in 2 Corinthians 12:9 says,

My grace is sufficient for you, 

for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

  • When you are tempted and it seems that it’s beyond your ability to withstand, this is when the favor of God comes to help you according to Hebrews 4:14-16. Admitting that you are weak and in need of help is not a bad confession. It is a truthful assessment of where you are and that you are in need of God’s sufficient grace to help in time of need. That’s why His sufficient grace is all about humility. It’s never about pride. As Paul said, “Knowledge puffs up.’ (see 1 Corinthians 8:1). When you get some knowledge about what you were doing, it’s refreshing at first. All of a sudden, you want to teach and tell others. It’s not a good idea to step into the place of trying to teach others because at the early stage of the game, the enemy, and your flesh is waiting for the heat to come off.
  • All the while that you were winning early in the game, the enemy, your mind, and your flesh was mounting a come back. That one picture you said that you wouldn’t look at. That one young looking female that walked by you yesterday. Well, she walked passed you and you couldn’t help but check her out like you used to.
  • Again, His sufficient grace is about humility. To humble yourself means that you will call someone when the temptation is great. You will fall on your knees and call out to the Father, in Jesus’ name for help. You will pick up your Bible instead of that towel and Vaseline. You will subdue the mind instead of meditating on that young woman in lust.

Lesson ThirtyEight: His Grace, Not Your Ability, Part Two

James 4:6 says,

But He gives more grace. Therefore He says, 

‘God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

  • Again, His sufficient grace is about humility. When you realize that your deliverance is all about the work of God in you, the more grace comes. God is using your life as an example to others that deliverance is not only possible, but it’s doable. You and I are in the greatest battle of our lives until we pass away. There are many men and women that yearn to be free but because of several reasons, including the underlying reason called pride, many will stay bound. This is not a bad confession because the difference between freedom and bondage is a decision.
  • Without the grace or favor of the Lord, we will never be free. The Lord Jesus freed us from the guilt or shame of sin. He delivered us from the power of sin but we are still on the earth, in the presence of sin. You and I need His sufficient grace to overcome in the evil day.
  • No person doesn’t have a weak moment. These moments will come. It is what you do when that weak moment comes that determines the measure of your submission to Christ. Revolving door repentance is a game that I refused to play any more. You must commit to do the same.
  • Submitting to God is a decision that you must make in the time of temptation. Resisting the devil is the next step. This is how His sufficient grace begins to work in you until it is time to leave this life. We draw near to God when we humble ourselves under His sufficient and  gracious hand.
  • You must always remember that you cannot do this on your own. You need the Lord, His Word, and a good accountability set up. You need other eyes on your life. You must be asked the tough questions. You must be held accountable as part of His sufficient grace working in your life.
  • Otherwise, you will be back in the house of bondage and depending on where you are, it may get worse. God gave you a tremendous deliverance from secret sexual sins. Perhaps you went back and you are trying this all over. To make this stick, you must depend upon His sufficient grace.
  • There is no other way to do this.

Lesson ThirtyNine: Relapse Prevention: Go, And Sin No More

  • The woman caught in adultery in John chapter eight was told by the Lord Jesus to “Go, and sin no more.’ In John chapter five, the man that was lame for 38 years was told by the Lord Jesus, to “Go, and sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.’
  • Relapse in not the devil’s fault. Relapse is your fault. You must assume responsibility. Does relapse happen? Yes, but it doesn’t have to happen. That’s why God’s sufficient grace is always available. It is just a matter of you making a quality irreversible decision to never sin again.
  • Relapse means to “suffer deterioration after experiencing a period improvement.’ The conditions and the environment play a very critical role towards relapse. The things that you are thinking about play a critical role towards relapse. The company you are keeping that discuss things that you should not be discussing play a critical role towards relapse. The amount of time you spend by yourself plays a critical role towards relapse.
  • Relapse is about what is the predominating thing that is in your mind and how far along on the urges and impulse meter you are on. You can stop. If you are about to cross the street, if a car is coming, what do you do? You stop. Relapse is preventable so long as you know how to stop. That’s why the Lord knew that the woman caught in adultery and the man that was lame for 38 years could stop. We do not know if they did stop but one thing we do know, it is possible to stop sinning. God is not asking you to be perfect but He is commanding us to stop.
  • You can go, and sin no more. Never let your mind tell you that you can’t. By His sufficient grace, never let your body overcome you with sexually  immoral demands. By His sufficient grace, command your mind and command your body to cease and desist. Remember, you were bought with a price and you are not your own (see 1 Corinthians 6:18-20). The Owner will help you when you submit to God and then you can resist the devil, and he will flee from you. You can discipline your body and bring it into subjection (see 1 Corinthians 9:27. It takes training and a will to never return to bondage to secret sexual sins.
  • You must choose never to yield to the devil, your mind, and your body to go and sin some more. You must choose to, “Go, and sin no more.’ Before you fall, give somebody a call. Call on the name of the Lord, then call someone you confide in and feel safe. Don’t wait! Call Now!

Lesson Forty: CONCLUSION: Complete Freedom

  • There are many persons that do not feel free after completing a 60 day course, or any length of a course for that matter. What matters is what the Word of God says about you. Freedom is not a feeling. Freedom is a fact applied regardless of what you feel. Fact supersedes feeling. Your emotions are real but they can be misleading. That’s what trust and faith in God and His Word is all about.

Galatians 5:1 says, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”

  • Paul didn’t ask them what they felt about it. He told them to “stand fast.’ That means, do not go any where. The devil and your own mind will tell you that you are not free from porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation. Your urges and impulses, these flesh signals, will attempt to rise up as confirmation that you are not free. There is a place where these things are subdued. It is when you “catch yourself” from loitering longer than you should. We will never be delivered from the presence of sin until death but just like the psalmist said, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me.” We must understand that sin is in the presence of the Lord as the Lord is in us. What we must do is constantly submit ourselves to the Lord in the midst of evil. God knows how to prepare a table before you in the presence of your enemies.

2 Corinthians 3:17 says, “Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.”

John 8:31-32 says, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” 

John 8:34-36 says, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

Finally, remember what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (underline the author’s).

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
