Sex Strike To Attack Anti Abortion Law

Sexual immorality abstinence.

Is Hollywood having a revival?

Well, Alyssa Milano is calling for a “sex strike” to protest the heart beat bill signed in Georgia and in other states in the United States.

The heart beat bill is simple.

If you detect a heart beat in the baby, you can’t have an abortion.

Of course there will be fights in the courts to challenge the Constitutionality of the law, but for now, it appears that the protest of “No Sex” works in the favor of anti abortionists.

Because it takes “two to tango.”

If a woman withholds sex from a man, apart from artificial conception, a woman can’t get pregnant.

So, no sex means, no fornication or adultery.

But let’s be real about this.

Most sexually immoral women won’t withhold sex.

Then you have prostitution which depends upon undisciplined, sexually immoral, stupid males to be seduced to spend money for sex.

Condoms are known to fail.

Sexually transmitted diseases, if everyone listens to Alyssa Milano, would decrease too.

Hospitals will not get any business of treating STDs.

Here’s another problem.

When prostitutes get pregnant, they (the pimp and the prostitute) depend upon Planned Parenthood and other lesser known abortion mills to take care of murdering the child and put the woman back on the street.

That is unless the prostitute take the RU486 pill to deliberately induce a miscarriage to kill the baby, or use other pregnancy prevention devices.

So those that will listen to Ms. Milano is clearly helping reduce child murder/sacrifice, STDs, and other maladies associated with abortion.

Please don’t think for one moment that I’m trying to change the course of their protest.

Biblical abstinence is the goal.

We all know that Alyssa Milano’s ploy is to gain attention to stop states from passing anti abortion laws.

Giving In To Lust Is Easier Than To Flee

Many pastors and leaders face the fight of lust in the heart.

Paul tells us to “Flee also youthful lust.”

2 Timothy 2:22 (NKJV Strong’s) “Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”

See, it’s not enough just flee lust, but you must pursue “righteousness, faith (moral conviction or fidelity), love, peace……

Most young pastors more than likely are struggling in their marriages because of lust in the heart. More than likely, a “flame” came into the congregation, and he set his sights on her.

It happens all the time.

On the other hand, that “flame” came in to passively hunt for the pastor.

The combination of the two takes place.

One is hunting for the other and eventually, adultery is committed.

Usually, the male pastor is sexually dissatisfied with his wife and looks to spice things up with another woman.

Or the events in the marriage came to a tipping point where the male pastor had enough. Events in a marriage does have an affect.

As I was sharing with a couple, you should never allow events in a marriage divide the relationship. Usually the disconnect is intentional and it’s just a matter of time before adultery is committed.

As I read this article from CP (Christian Post), I began to see that this young pastor struggled with personal obedience to his Lord and Savior. Obedience to the Scriptures.

The Lord Jesus told us that “If any man desires to follow Me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.”

Lenard Ravenhill once said, that we “…came to His cross. Now get on yours.”

We must understand that lust must be kept crucified.

He shared that he couldn’t continue. Most stories like these end with the young pastor apologizing for not keeping the Scriptures he taught. For “faking it until he made it.” For living a hypocritical life. Then they depart, leaving a trail behind for the Lord to clean up.

Most people in these congregations that suffer in their marriages make for the exit. They were looking to their leader to hold fast to the Scriptures and then he makes an exit from his Lord.

Folks, the devil is not just after destroying marriages. He’s looking to make sure you spend eternity in hell with him.

We don’t seem to believe this anymore because we’re so detached from the fact that one day, we’ll stand either before the Judgment Seat of Christ as believers or stand before the Great White Throne Judgment before the Judge of all the earth as sinners.

The moment of self satisfaction in porn, masturbation, adultery, fornication, or homosexuality blinds us from the eternal consequences.

We ignore the dangers of judgment.

For this young pastor, it seems that he used means and traditional methods to address a situation in his marriage that many men and women experience.

Usually when we use counseling, books, and other tools to help us deal with a situation within our marriage, we seldom see their prayer lives, their obedience to the Scriptures, their love for Jesus excelling over their lust, problems, and marriage situations.

They no longer fight for their relationship with the Lord and their wives but easily give in to lust.

The god in their lives commands that they walk away and not fight, and these young male pastors obey. Some obey quickly.

Years ago, I shared that many will fall. And it won’t be the last.

Fighting lust is very tough.

And all it takes for man to fulfill his lust is when a flaming hot young lady walks in the door of the congregation. Or he searches for a flaming hot young lady, willing to sexually satisfy his flesh.

One moment of pleasure isn’t worth an eternity in hell.

Behind every hot flame is a pack of demons of lust.

To destroy or frustrate the plans of a flaming hot sexually immoral woman is to avoid them at all costs. The moment you intend to create an opportunity of contact for connection, is the moment all bets are off.

You avoid them by returning to the Lord in prayer and fasting, seeking the face of the Lord every moment. By cutting off every angle of attack when they make the move to get close to you.

When they want to “see the pastor,” you send your wife or a trusted elderly saint to run interference. You put people in place to protect the zone.

You never put yourself in a position to be ambushed by their schemes.

You never counsel them alone.

Let them walk away frustrated.

If you’re looking to get into sexual trouble, we pray that the Lord would interfere with your plans to sin against Him. If you look to circumvent His intervention, it will be to your own peril.

It takes a solid prayer and Word life to recognize that the plans of the devil is to destroy you.

This young pastor made a reversible choice.

For now, he chose to depart but he can return in repentance.

But you fight to stay pure and holy before the Lord.

Fight to stay right with the help of the Holy Spirit.

David E. Taylor- False Prophet Alert- Face To Face.

Many of you may have heard of “Face To Face.”

David E. Kelly claims to have seen Jesus in a face to face encounter.

Notice the picture of “Jesus.”

It’s a dead give away.

I’m not saying that this photo or any photo that David E. Kelly uses is an actual photo of Jesus.

Most people post these and other photos which is complete error on their part to attract the gullible.

Only the gullible will be duped by this false prophet.

There’s also some pictures on his FB page and website of clouds that appear to have a face in them and the beholder is duped into thinking that this is Jesus.

The Bible is clear.

1 John 4:12

“No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.

No one living today knows what the Lord looks like outwardly.

Especially when the Bible says, 1 John 3:2 (NKJV Strong’s) “Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”

Many people will ignore these Scriptures and that’s where the danger is.

If David E. Kelly were serious, he wouldn’t post these pictures to deliberately mislead people.

But first, it’s all over the Internet that Vicki Yohe, a Christian singer, appeared on YouTube to explain a serious situation involving sexual immorality between her and David E. Taylor for 16 months.

Some of you may be familiar with David E. Kelly.

He gave a deposition regarding using ministry money for unlawful personal purposes. His answers were very crafty and questionable.

Now we’ve seen this before when another false teacher talked about angelic visitations while involved in adultery. He performed these sins even while well known Christian leaders were on stage, endorsing his ministry.

His name is Todd Bentley.

The saying goes…..“Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”

When you hear strange doctrines coming from people, if you don’t know your Bible and the God of the Bible, it’s very easy to be deceived.

And that’s not all.

More likely than not, sexual immorality is closely associated with it.

The point is simple. When there’s strange doctrines involved, sexual immorality will be closely associated.

Peter said these words in 2 Peter chapter 2 and verse 14….“…having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.”

In a recent video of David E. Taylor, he claims to be saying that pastors are speaking against his “divine ministry.”

People need to put their big boy pants on and keep it moving. If someone speaks against your ministry, welcome to the club.

You don’t have to act possessive and childish.

That’s the difference between His Kingdom and your empire.

Throughout his discourse, there’s no denial of the allegations of being sexually involved with Vicki Yohe. Usually, if there’s false allegations, a person will defend their integrity.

To be charged with adultery, or with any kind of sexual immorality like porn, masturbation, prostitution, homosexuality, etc., when you’re involved in a very “powerful” ministry, you would do everything in your power to defend yourself against the charges, IF YOU’RE INNOCENT.

Instead, we see people use the same spiritual cliche’s that are hollow.

“If you speak against me and my powerful ministry, God will get you.”

The sad thing is, we all know that people have walked away from his “ministry.”

What also tends to happen is that he will do everything in his power to stop the bleeding. He’s being attacked. So, he is counter punching. It’s not that he’s being attacked.

He’s being EXPOSED.

Now regarding his claim of “visitation” of the Lord Jesus in a face to face encounter, it’s clear to me that the Lord does appear to people from time to time, but if such divine encounters occurred, it’s so sacred, that people will have a marked changed about them and they will more than likely not advertise the encounter.

In Vicki Yohe’s YouTube video, if memory serves me correct, she accused David Kelly of being involved with another woman and he dumped Yohe. If this is true, if you’ve had an encounter with the Lord Jesus, you would NEVER engage in conduct that would bring questions to your walk in the Lord.

True ministers of the Lord are more concerned about the integrity of their relationship with God than with their ministry. In fact, more often than not, a minister can do without ministry.

You love the Lord more than the “ministry.”

So David E. Kelly’s claim to have had a Face To Face encounter with Jesus, if these allegations are true, are very suspect at best.

Then you have the very words of Jesus Himself in Matthew 24, verse 11

“Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.”

Matthew 24:23-28 (NKJV Strong’s)

“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.

Did you notice the two places that Jesus mentioned that false prophets will use to attract you to them?

Look…Here is the Christ.
Look…There is the Christ.
Look…He is in the desert.
Look…He is in the inner rooms.

These two places, the desert, and inner rooms are locations.

The desert is dry and the inner rooms are overt and covert secrets.

David E. Kelly said in one video about an “elite anointing.”

No such thing in the Bible.

They all begin with “Look.”

In order for you to look, you have to believe what they’ve said they’ve seen.

Always take with a grain of salt those that said they’ve seen the Lord and then they tell you to come and “look.”

Has anyone noticed that no one says that they’ve seen satan?

We must remember that people are hungry for a spiritual encounter with the Lord but they’re looking in places where Jesus isn’t there.

Here’s another thing.

They always have “spooky music.”

Most keyboardists know that “stringed” instruments pull on the emotions of people and they become more open to “spiritual” things with the right keys and chords.

Personality people on stages can’t do without it.

Music is a power few don’t resist.

But here’s another thing.

It also disarms the unsuspecting, if you yield, you surrender common sense, you disarm due diligence in investigating these hucksters, and once they do these things, they completely abandon the correct teachings of the Scriptures.

Paul said in 2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NKJV Strong’s) “…for the time will come when they (believers) will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”

In one video, where David E. Kelly was talking, while some may feel bad about him, we should feel even worse for the ones that were on the stage behind him.

It breaks my heart to look at people being deceived.

But the houses where there’s full of people, Proverbs 14:15 is all over the place.

If there’s ever a time we need to be even more discerning, it’s these times. But it’s a clear moment that we all should be aware of.

The coming of the Lord is imminent.

False prophets are rising with more frequency.

Paul said in 2 Timothy 3:13 (NKJV Strong’s) “But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”

Take the time to investigate their fruit.

The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 7:15-20 (NKJV Strong’s) “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”

So at this time, it’s best to declare “Face To Face” as a very suspecting event and to steer clear of things like this. You can get more watching a man milk a goat than a man speaking great swelling idle words.

It’s when a person had their sin exposed that you would find them contrite and broken in their hearts for departing from the Lord and entering into sin.

A person will do one of two things.

If he’s innocent, fight the charges.

If they’re guilty, “Godly sorrow that works repentance, leading to salvation…”

Regarding David E. Kelly, we’ve seen him fight the charges but when you use a lot of spiritual cliche’s that we’ve heard before from other personality false prophets caught in sin, it’s clear that something isn’t right.

What is David E. Kelly also fighting?

To keep getting PAID.

If the money stops, you have to work for a living.

Paul said, “For the love of money is the root of all evil.”

You can’t sit a false prophet down. And you can’t make a false prophet sit down.

Ladies. Learn to guard your heart according to Proverbs 4:23.

Learn to be a lot more discerning and not allow yourself to be captured by the smooth words of a false prophet.

Sadly, Vicki Yohe got taken because many women that are gullible.

Ladies, don’t be another victim.

If you’re thinking about getting close to a man of God, if he’s married, you have no right even thinking about it.

Keep your heart clean.

If you see a ring on him, walk away from him.

It’s not worth the fires of hell for one moment of pleasure.

If I Carry My Child, Who’s Going To Help Me Support It?

Unknown-15

As I was street preaching in Brooklyn, NY with my agitation abolitionist sign from Abolish Human Abortion, a lady walked up to me and questioned me about the social responsibility of children. She was a social worker and obviously a supporter of murdering children.

It became apparent to me that since the line of fornication and or adultery were crossed, the next line to cross would be the advocating of murdering a child because a mother can’t pay for the child. Sadly, this is a common problem among our communities and in the house of worship.

We are not willing to admit that this is a problem because we are more concerned about looking good before the community. Not realizing that we are looking mighty bad before the eyes of the Lord.

When whoredom and whoremongering is in the church, it is clear that sanctification, holiness, and righteousness are least talked about subjects from the pastor; let alone lived out in clean lives before the Lord.

While we cannot take responsibility about the sexual immorality of our nation and neighborhoods, as a people that claim to know God, we have a responsibility to make sure that our own house is clean before God.

Let’s back this up.

Since a woman and a man can afford to have sex, it seems to me that they should have gotten married first to begin with.

Sadly, some men want to have the pleasure without the responsibility. Sadly, some women want to have the pleasure without ensuring that the man she is mating with will be around to support he child and the mother.

It’s another example of putting the cart before the horse.

Now, mind you that many women will argue about “my body.” 

They will also argue about the fact that a man, the state (government), or the church doesn’t have the right to tell them about what to do with “their body.”

What they are saying is that no one, even God, doesn’t have authority over them.

This is anarchy. Sadly, Mr. I. B. Stupid will get in bed with them, get them pregnant, and then they will march down to an abortion house of murder to erase a life, to erase their sin. But because they do not see their adultery or fornication as sin, it is very easy to sacrifice a child.

There was a sign made by Mr. I. B. Stupid. It said “Abortion helps me not to pay child support.” Or words to the effect.

Automatically in the fool is his get out of child support card.

You see, lust demons will instruct fornicators on what to do should there be a pregnancy. From an article from EXMInistries, satanists involved in abortion demands a blood sacrifice. So an abortion doctor may very well be a satanist offering up your child to the devil as a blood sacrifice.

This is not surprising because that’s what the murder of 56 million babies are.

Blood sacrifices to satan.

satan hates the image of God and since the devil cannot kill God, he will murder people straight up.

John 8:44 is proof of this.

In the heat of a woman’s argument, the deception of “their body” would not be necessary in the first place had they not sinned before God in fornication or adultery. Many will say that it’s not about that. Well, beg to differ because it is. Every problem that is on earth is a spiritual problem that requires a spiritual solution.

The decision to sin is a spiritual decision.

James 1:14-16 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. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.”

That’s where the problem has always been. Pleasure has deceived them and they get caught in the trap. Instead of abstaining, they pursued the satisfaction to obtain pleasure. They call it a “mistake.” But calling it a mistake is like softening the blow of the fact that they have sinned before God. And they know it.

So caught with a child, they look to exterminate the child and everything is back to normal.

To have pleasure outside of the Word of God comes with a penalty.

You are pregnant. Now what are you gong to do?

Who is gong to support me? Who is going to help me?

There are many pregnancy crisis centers in the area that can help you keep your child. If you choose to put your child up for adoption, adoption is a better way than to face murder charges from the Judge of heaven. Even better, just refrain from the bedroom. Remember 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 that fornicators and adulterers will not inherit the kingdom of God. So those sins can be forgiven when you turn your heart over to the Lord in repentance, and put your total faith in the saving grace of God, through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Advocating sinning against God is not a position that any believer or pastor is to take because you would be violation of James 4:4. If you are already pregnant, and you are not married, or your male non supporter disappeared (coward), search for a crisis pregnancy center and take it from there. Search for family members that may be willing to help. Stop by a local true Christian church to seek help there.

To run to Planned Murderhood or any other abortion murder mill to kill a life because of sin is worse.

Billy Graham’s Grandson Commits Adultery – Ministerial Suicide By Adultery?

Just a few days ago, the Lord told me that the devils on the earth have said, “If the believers knew how to walk like Christ, we would be under their feet every day.”

The price of adultery among pastors is always incalculable. In this hour where sexual immorality is plaguing the world, the church needs to be a beacon of light in a dark world. But when the devil can cause a well known minister to fall into Secret or Overt Sexual Sins, it gives our work of the ministry another black eye.

We disqualify ourselves and render ourselves unfit for the service of the Master.

The world will look at us a incapable of living to the standards that we’ve been preaching to them about.

However, just because people fail the standard, it doesn’t mean that the standard failed in and of itself.

Jesus said, “Heaven and earth will pass away but My Words will never pass away.”

Preachers. The last thing we need is to give the devil more ammunition to choke the church into submission.

The devils is not looking for us to “tap out.” 

This anaconda is looking to squeeze the life out of the church and swallow us whole.

But Jesus said, “The gates of hell shall not prevail against the church.”

First, based on the story, the wife of Tullian Tchividjian, the son of the eldest daughter of Billy Graham, admitted to committing adultery. In turn, or should I say, in RETURN, he felt justified to commit adultery too.

Years ago, when I came out from the darkness of Secret Sexual Sins, I took note of the many ministers that were caught in the web of sexual sins.

One by one, they would fall.

The Lord would tell me that this would not be the last. That more would fall along the way.

The Lord was true to the letter.

In both cases of the wife committing adultery and the husband committing adultery, two wrongs do not make a right.

Ministry is fair game and is a level playing field.

From the plains of Moab (Mother of All Battles) to today, sexual immorality to destroy a ministry is ever present.

It is clear that when you leave your family vulnerable, there is a good chance that satan will take advantage of it.

Sex is a very powerful tool that the enemy uses to destroy ministers and their ministries. As Paul said, we must take heed, lest we fall.

As many of us have been saying, no one is exempt from sexual temptation. If we fail to watch ourselves every moment, we will be sucked under the undercurrent and drown in sin. If no one rescues us, we are forever lost according to Revelation 21:8.

It doesn’t matter the name brand of preachers.

It’s a level playing field. We are all fair game.

We do not have to be well known and then again, we can be well known.

The devil doesn’t care, He will go after anyone that is willing to drink of the mud of sexual immorality to bring dishonor to the name of the Lord. That’s why it is important that we take heed and never leave our marriages vulnerable.

If you are married, your first ministry is your marriage. God will not fault you for making sure that your marriage has integrity. Your ministry might be a mess, but it is better to have a messy ministry than to have a messy marriage. This is no excuse to allow your ministry to be in disarray.

When a man marries a ministry, it is adultery.

Now this is not to say that this is the case with Tullian Tchividjian.

I will say that up to this point, it gives the appearance that there was neglect in the marriage. It very well could have been both of them neglecting each other. Or it could be just one person neglecting the other. Sometimes a man could use ministry as an excuse to get away from a wife that is seeking his attention. Or there could be other resolvable issues that he or she is seeking to get away from.

Again this is speculative because we do not know the circumstances.

But it gives us a glimpse into the fact that whatever the case may be, we need to be more diligent about maintaining our marriages with integrity. If there are differences, and no marriage on earth doesn’t have differences, to do the best to resolve them as quickly as possible. Otherwise the enemy will exploit those differences just as satan did in the Garden of Eden.

I find it that many will not learn from this lesson and more adulterous relationships will continue, but it is not worth going to hell over. And it is not worth losing your place in the Body of Christ to lead people to live holy lives before God.

Some will learn from this lesson and begin to make changes to foster good marriages while in ministry. Many will make the necessary heart and attitude changes so that they could avoid the same pitfalls of many marriages.

Some will go the extra mile to see that each others needs is met. To pray and seek the help of God to have a healthy marriage.

Not all marriages that end in adultery is a porn and masturbation issue. 

However, we should check to make sure that this is not an issue.

Finally, in reading comment on FB, a person shared that adultery was used to get out of the ministry.

It is possible because it’s called (newly coined) Ministerial Suicide By Adultery.

The person shared that it’s been done before by many persons in the ministry.

It’s when a person has had enough of ministry that the deliberately commit adultery because they know that it’s a sure way to be removed from the pulpit. In a way, it may have some truth to it, but, why not just resign the pulpit? Or why not groom an experienced pastor to assume the pulpit?

It’s so much better than conceiving a disgraceful way to end a ministry.

Usually, after the pastor has an adulterous relationship, the flock abandons the ministry.

It’s not rare that people stay to make the remaining ministry work. It has been done where recovery is possible. Some churches survive and thrive. Others experience a decline in attendance, thus reducing its numbers, but the church remains intact. Others have closed their doors forever.

We must never underestimate the power of the enemy to destroy a ministry.

Again, this is a level playing field and everyone need to be even more diligent, sober, and vigilant.

Father, we pray for this family that they would recover from the snare of the enemy. That the grace of God would enter their minds and foster an atmosphere of healing. May repentance be granted from God. May God restore to them the joy of His salvation. Lord, let your will be done.

Let us recognize the price of sexual failure. But let us also recognize that forgiveness is granted to those that repent of wickedness. The Body of Christ is stained once again. The fiery dart of the wicked one has once again been shot. It has found it’s mark because the shield of faith was dropped in battle. 

Lord, we cannot cover sin for to do so, no one can prosper. But when we confess and forsake sin, we shall obtain mercy.

Lord, there is no excuse for this. For You have given us everything that we need to overcome.

The blood of Jesus is available as always to wash us and make us clean, provided we come with humble hearts to seek its cleansing power.

Only the blood of Jesus is powerful enough to remove the stains of sin. Only the grace of God is powerful enough to sustain the weak in weak moments. Let Your grace prevail. Let not the enemy gloat over this. 

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Stop Playing With Yourself: Worshipping At The Altar Of Lust

Growing up as a kid, you hear things that made you think.

Statements like “go play with yourself” had that sexual overtone that everyone knew what it’s about. However, after a while, you find yourself doing masturbation more often than you realize. Until it becomes second nature. The muscle memory and the false pleasure of having sex with someone that isn’t there became more than just “playing with yourself.”

It turned from pleasure habit into a bondage that is no different than nicotine, cocaine, or alcohol dependency.

It’s addictive. Voyeurism, exhibitionism, and other obsessive forms of sexual immorality is not that far off. That’s because with self sexual foreplay, people that are not in control will engage anywhere.

The false pros of masturbation is no relationship with another person. No STDs. No pregnancies.

You schedule your day around it.

In 1 John 2:15-17, John, the beloved apostle of the Lamb said, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away and the lust thereof, but he that does the will of the Father abides forever.”

Lust is the law in the flesh of fallen man (male and female).

The law of lust is what’s behind masturbation.

The law of sin and death (see Romans 8:1-2) demands that lust be fulfilled, but we all know that lust is never fulfilled. It remains dissatisfied forever. Anything that is not ordained by the Lord is of the devil. The devil’s desires will always remain insatiable. Hence, the fallen state of man, these desires, unless put to death, will remain insatiable.

The corruption of flesh demands satisfaction.

The flesh demands to recharge to re-satisfy itself.

In the normal concept of sex, the reset to do it all over again is to be tempered or self controlled.

Lust is never controlled. It must be put to death.

In the last 6 years, masturbation was the most difficult thing to break. After 33 years from 1975 to 2008, a week wouldn’t go by unless I engaged in masturbation. At first, it seemed normal and innocent. Afterwards, I was hooked and developed a list of reasons to keep doing what I wanted to do. Even after marriage, I found myself engaging.

Lust after women “enhanced” this pursuit of sexual satisfaction. But satisfaction was never achieved. Even with introducing pornography in 1998, the satisfaction was never achieved.

Little did I realized that not only was I breaking God’s command about the sanctity of marriage according to Genesis 2:24, far worse, I idolized my desire to have self or solo sex.

It became my god.

The Lord God said to Moses in Exodus 20:3-6,

“You shall have no other gods before Me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image —any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them.

For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.”

To put it as bluntly as allowed, getting off was worshipped.

At this altar of sexual immorality, I paid homage to the god of lust. The second god or idol was my sexual organ. What kept me worshipping at this altar was the dopamine. The drug of fulfillment and satisfaction.

This infatuation of getting this drug in my blood stream had me coming back for more and more every time.

All it took to get me started was touching myself sexually. Or a combination of things. Lusting after the flesh. The sexual objectification of a woman’s anatomy. At the end of the day, there’s no question what was going to happen. From 2008 to 2011, the grace of God enabled me to completely abstain from masturbation.

It was a great 3.5 years of learning how to control myself.

Dr. Mark Lasser really taught the lesson on self control. He asked the greatest question I’ve ever heard.

Can you do without sex with your wife and masturbation?

The answer is yes.

Hence, the definition of addiction recovery.

“To control, manage, or stop using a particular substance, thing, or activity.”

There are many advocates that encourage masturbation as a healthy sexual practice. This would fall under the category of “control or manage.”

However, if it is being worshipped, it must stop because God has no rivals. If God is enthroned on your heart, there can be no other gods.

In reading many books that reason with making seemingly viable excuses to continue masturbation, many men will accept these arguments and stand their ground when they are challenged.

Proverbs 14:12 says, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.”

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.”

So the end is always death. What kind of death? Death in your relationship with the Lord. Broken fellowship with God.

It seems right to justify sin but it always end in death. You are tempted, you fall into temptation, you yield to temptation. The desire has conceived (egg – sperm unites). Sin is birthed. Death is the result.

In Matthew 26:41, Jesus said, “Watch and pray, lest you fall into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing but the flesh is weak.”

Even with watching and praying, lust was lurking within me that I feared greatly.

The urge to touch myself sexually got stronger and stronger.

Mind you, I was praying. I had an accountability partner. I was teaching the men how to overcome.

Then the moment of truth came. After a setback at an event, discouragement zapped me so bad that I fell into the trap of touching myself sexually.

From 2011 to early spring of 2014, I found myself back into “playing with myself.”

To even try to deflect how I got back into masturbation or to attempt to minimize the fall is the worst thing in the world you could do. That’s because to falsely justify sexual immorality is a deception not worth going to hell over. Even to count how many times I masturbated to give a minimal number to minimize the blow is folly.

I also found out that you can’t preach effectively to sinners if you are in sin yourself. You are disqualified.

Since returning to the streets to preach, the reason that kept me from preaching in the streets was directly tied to sexual immorality running rampant in my life. There is no anointing in sin. God never anoints what He never appoints. Sin and holiness can never mingle. God’s temple cannot be full of idols. Jesus and satan can never have communion, fellowship, or unity. Darkness cannot co-mingle with light.

Ineffective living always leads to ineffective preaching. If you cannot live to obey the commands of Jesus, you can’t win a soul to Jesus. The crucified life demands denying yourself, taking up your cross, and following the Lord. Many desire to follow the Lord, but they never deny themselves (see Mark 8:34).

You deliberately cheat or defraud yourself from achieving a false pleasure to gain the highest pleasure.

Pleasing God.

You can’t talk about taking up your cross unless you deny yourself.

In other words, you stop playing with yourself.

Most ministers are ineffective because of the refusal to deny themselves.

Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9:27, “But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.”

Jesus said this in Matthew 5:28-30, “But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.

And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”

This is not a stretch of revelation but you and I both know that the Lord covered masturbation because it takes an eye to lust and the hand to play. There is no question about it and to fool ourselves into thinking that the Lord wasn’t talking about self sex is foolishness and deliberate deception.

As Mike Cleveland of Setting Captives Free said, this is “radical amputation.”

If you refuse to cut off anything that is leading you to masturbate, notice what Jesus said….

“…for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”

Will a person go to hell over masturbation?

Are you willing to let masturbation rule you like a god? And are you willing to risk it?

Remember what Revelation 21:8 says.

Remember also Hebrews 12:4.

“You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.”

And NO. I am not telling you that you need to butcher yourself to stop sinning.

What is it that you are willing to do to stop sinning?

How far will you go?

Are you willing to pull out the TV?

Are you willing to give up your mobile device you use to spy out flesh to masturbate off of?

Are you willing to give up your passcode to your computer to an accountability partner and or your wife?

Are you willing to get off of FB or all social media?

Are you willing to walk across the street when a hot looking woman is within your periphery?

Are you willing to look in another direction when she is trying to get your attention at the magazine stand?

Are you willing to change channels if you keep your TV?

Are you willing to get up out of bed, pray and seek God when you are sexually aroused at night?

Are you willing to call your accountability partner to get prayer in your hour of temptation?

Are you willing to pick up the phone when your accountability partner calls on you to check up on you?

Are you willing to stop being evasive when asked the tough questions?

 

So let’s sum this up.

1. Lust must be destroyed. In fact, lust was destroyed on the cross of Christ according to 1 John 3:8.

But is lust destroyed in you? Colossians 3:5 is the answer.

2. God has no rivals. Exodus 20-3-6.

3. Excuses seems right but frivolous justification always lead to death. Proverbs 14:12, James 1:14-15.

4. Watch and pray. Matthew 26:41.

5. Discipline yourself. 1 Corinthians 9:27.

 

Unwed Black Mothers: The Only Solution Is Staring At Us

Once again, my thanks to my friend and colleague, Pastor DL Foster of GCMWatch for posting this news link on FB.

It appears that this article has hit a nerve on the plight of unwed Black mothers. According to NBC News, “Blacks struggle with 72% unwed rate.”

Becoming an unwed mother is avoidable.

Just like being an unwed dad is avoidable.

The diabolical solutions of condoms, abortion, morning after pills, and LGBT agenda driven issues have done more harm and no good AT ALL for Black people, or any race for that matter.

There’s no sense in being in denial about it. Yet, we seem to like to lie to ourselves. We love shooting ourselves in the foot. We love to bang our heads against the wall with blood streaming down our faces.

We can flip the dumb switch to the off position anytime we’re ready.

You do not have to have sex outside of marriage. In fact, it is a sin according to the Bible. Whether you believe the Bible or not, you are not excused or exempt from judgment because you don’t believe.

Or if you are a selective believer, you are accountable according to Romans 3:23 and Hebrews 9:27.

Ecclesiastes 3:15 says,
“That which is has already been,
And what is to be has already been;
And God requires an account of what is past.”

1 Peter 4:3-6
For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles —when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries.

In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you.

They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.

For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

It is clear that the answer to the unwed question is found in the Word of God.

Genesis 2:24 24 “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall become united and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”

Many of you will say that’s fine but the real issue is available black men. Look outside the window preacher. Where are they?

They are uneducated. They are drug dealers. They are in jail. They are unemployed. They are playing the field of homosexuality. They are marrying White women, or other ethnic races other than their own.

They are everywhere except where they are supposed to be.

Where can available single Black women find available single Black men if this is all we have left?

The homosexual lifestyle and abortion has a lot to do with the lopsidedness of available men.

For a long time, the church and the preacher has miserably failed to adequately live and preach the Word of God. However, there are the few that do.

Here’s another thing.

The people outside the church, that is, those that never want to live holy, never intended to live for God.

Jesus said in John 3:18-21 these words, “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.

But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

You see, the solution to all of life’s problems begins with God and His Word, yet, people refuse to come to the Lord.

We can educate all we want, and there is nothing wrong with education and to come together to discuss solutions to this problem is commendable. BUT, we sometimes use discussion as either a temporary appeasement apparatus, or it’s a delay tactic for fear of real implementation to stop a situation.

It’s like watching a freight train go down hill with no brakes, getting ready to make a turn.

The end results speaks for itself.

When it comes to abortion, for instance, Black people kill more babies than any other ethnic group in the nation. For instance, in NYS, the abortion rate is two times more than the national average. If we Black folks were really concerned, and if we were really serious about putting an end to this madness, we would have done so already.

98% of all abortions is because the mother deems the child an “inconvenience.”

This tells us one thing.

Fornication and adultery in NYS (New York State) is twice the national average.

The beginning of all problems starts with SIN (Selfish Individual Needs).

It’s a trifecta.

Sexual immorality, incarceration, lack of education.

Above this trifecta that affects Black people is the blatant, deliberate unwillingness to repent.

1 John 2:15-17 says, “Love not the world neither the things that are in the world. For all that is in the world. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the lust thereof but he that does the will of God abides forever.”

Still, preacher…….look outside the window.

Believe me, I am. The Lord and I is seeing what is happening.

Well, what do you see, preacher?

We see people deliberately ignoring the Word of God.

As I read the article, there was one woman that said that she couldn’t deal with marriage. Well, she participated in the benefits of marriage.

Sex.

What do you see, preacher?

I see males acting like males.

Males thinking with the lower head and completely disregarding the upper head, as Dr. Fred Price once said over 30 years ago.

Some ignorant Black males are not operating on all four cylinders.

It is clear by the statistics that children in families within the framework of holy matrimony do well.

Marriage, as defined by God in His Word, is the best environment for children.

With the odds against Black males, we know that this makes it very tough to raise children properly. What has happened is that we have attempted to implement solutions without God and His Word. Every time we read about these horror stories, we see that because people do it without God, they believe that they can get along without Him.

With the people of God in the church, we see that the same thing is happening.

Blacks attend church more than any other ethnic group in the nation, yet, we do not agree with the Word of God. Just look at this.

Blacks attend church more than any other ethnic group in the nation.

Blacks kill more babies than any other ethnic group in the nation.

Black women are single parents more than any other ethnic group in the nation.

Black men are incarcerated more than any other ethnic group in the nation.

Blacks are unemployed more than any other ethnic group in the nation.

Blacks have half the new HIV/AIDS cases than any other ethnic group in the nation.

This is proof that we may attend church, but we don’t care about living the truth in the Word of God.

This makes us look as dumb as a bag of hammers.

The preacher is to be blamed and the professed believer is to be blamed.

Now correct me in any of this. Feel free to do me a favor and tell me that I am wrong, and show me with clear irrefutable evidence.

But people will not heed the Word of God as stated by Jesus in John chapter 3 because men loved darkness than light.

So how long have we been fooling ourselves? How long have we been walking around with a big hole in our pants? How long have we been smelling really bad, like we’ve been bathing in vomit, human and animal feces combined? How long have we been sleeping with a corpse in our bed?

A very long time.

We’ve grown accustomed to the smell that tolerating it is no problem.

So, are we to just sit and do nothing?

Absolutely NOT!!!!!

No watchman on the wall is to shirk his or her duty of preaching the unadulterated Word of God.

In this moment in time, we can address this problem by declaring our houses of worship as a holy place of God, from the pulpit to the door. In this moment in time, we can teach discipline through the Word of God. In this moment of time, we can seek God, pray, and obey the Word of God. This is not a luxury. It is mandatory.

Without the gospel of Jesus Christ, no man made solution will work. We could talk until we are blue in the face, but until we preach what we live and live what we preach, we are wasting each breath we take.

Ladies, it doesn’t begin with you, it begins with Black brothers coming back to the heart of the Father, through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Ladies, the mentality of a sinning male is that why buy the cow when the milk is free? If you give him what he wants, what does that make you?

Makes both of you fornicators.

And brothers, if she offers what you want without getting married, Proverbs chapters 6 and 7 is for you.

Never fall for the seductive sexually immoral woman. Be like Joseph and run. Everyone of her guests were mighty men and the house of a seductive woman is the staircase to HELL!!!!

There is no other solution available.

If a man is not willing to marry you, walk away from him. You have to believe that he is not the last option on the planet. An uncircumcised in heart male is only after one thing. What is between your legs. After he is done, he will go to the next, and the next, and the next. But a man that highly worships God is only after one thing.

To please God.

Marriage is tough. Let no one fool you, however, it is in this environment there is safety, so long as both the male and female have the Lord and learn how to treat each other with honor, dignity, and respect for God and His Word first, then for each other.

I guarantee you that we will read more articles like the one you are about to read. There is no question in my mind.

But I challenge you to read in these articles that will come of any real Biblical solutions.

Adultery and fornication is a sin before God. Hebrews 13:4 says….Marriage is honorable among all and the bed undefiled (without human feces), but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”

1 Corinthians 6:9 says, “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.”

Isaiah the prophet said these words.

“Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth!
For the Lord has spoken:
“I have nourished and brought up children,
And they have rebelled against Me;
The ox knows its owner
And the donkey its master’s crib;
But Israel does not know,
My people do not consider.”
Alas, sinful nation,
A people laden with iniquity,
A brood of evildoers,
Children who are corrupters!
They have forsaken the Lord,
They have provoked to anger
The Holy One of Israel,
They have turned away backward.”

Isaiah 1:2-4

Well preacher, all you’ve talk about is our dirty laundry for all to see. You didn’t offer one concrete solution.

Well you have failed once again to read the Scriptures that I’ve placed in this article. And on top of that, you deliberately refused to accept God’s plan as the solution. That’s where the problem will always be.

Man’s deliberate refusal to do what the Word of God said.

Here is this stunning article from NBC News.

Hot, Sexy Single Christian


You meet a hot looking single in church. She is just too sexy to resist. You ask her out for a date. But in the back of your mind, it will be more than a date. In her mind, it’s what she planned all along. To capture a male that’s been eyeing you for a little while. She accepts your proposal and you take her out to dinner.

As planned, you then go to your house.

One thing leads to another.

You end up in bed.

In most cases these days, skip dinner and just go straight to bed.

Premarital sex is a “so what” kind of thing these days.

Maintaining your virginity is no longer sacred to many professed believers.

Growing up as a young Christian, the challenges of sexuality were all around me.

Yes, I was even propositioned by a homosexual music minister in a Baptist church.

In school, peer pressure to look to have sex abounded and I would be teased for being a “virgin.”

That didn’t stop me from sexual experimentation or indulging in masturbation. Even while courting, the temptation was there to have sex but I would let off the sexual tension through masturbation.

Yes, I am being truthful about this because almost every young boy upon reaching puberty will experiment sexually. By the time most men are married, they will either have had sex with a girl or boy, both sexes, or with themselves, or all of the above.

In any case, males will have had some sexual experience before they are married.

Single women will more than likely marry a sexually experienced male. Even if he is a virgin, if he has masturbated, he is sexually active with himself. And the same could be said of women that are virgins that are sexually active with themselves.

As I read a Christian Post three part article on premarital sex in the church, I was startled by the number of single Christians engaging in fornication.

Most Christians or professed single believers cross the line more often than we thought.

According to this article, 11% of professed single believers abstain from fornication.

This means that in the approximately 320,000 American Christian churches, 89% of single professed believers engaged in fornication.

According to several educated Christian counselors and Christian sex therapists, as soon as they took note of the power of the Internet, they knew that a storm of epic proportions would be underway and would overwhelm the church.

Today, the winds of perversion are blowing away the people that once stood for righteousness, holiness, and this is a clear indication of where America is not headed, but is already there.

The bed of fornication.

In Revelation chapters 17 and 18, though it is symbolic, we must never forget that any Scripture that is symbolic is a revelation of actuality. Just take a look at the conditions of this world and the condition of the church and you will see that what is revealed in the Book of Revelation is a true depiction of today’s conditions.

This is not to say that we are in the tribulation period, but we are rapidly progressing towards it. I am well aware that there is much disagreement about the dispensation that we are in but put aside the differences and see the reality before your eyes that we are in the bed of fornication and that we are drinking from the wine of her fornication.

2 Timothy 3:1-9  from the Message Bible says this about the last days.

“Don’t be naive. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self–absorbed, money–hungry, self–promoting, stuck–up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog–eat–dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God.

They’ll make a show of religion, but behind the scenes they’re animals. Stay clear of these people. These are the kind of people who smooth–talk themselves into the homes of unstable and needy women and take advantage of them; women who, depressed by their sinfulness, take up with every new religious fad that calls itself “truth.”

They get exploited every time and never really learn. These men are like those old Egyptian frauds Jannes and Jambres, who challenged Moses. They were rejects from the faith, twisted in their thinking, defying truth itself. But nothing will come of these latest impostors. Everyone will see through them, just as people saw through that Egyptian hoax.”

The world is drunk with the wine of fornication.

This statistic above is a clear indication of the world’s perversion that has undeniably infiltrated the church and almost engulfing every known place where righteousness was thought to be lived and preached.

You see, it’s not just the pinnacle of sexual immorality called homosexuality that is a clear and present danger to the church. It is all forms of sexual immorality. What went under the radar is the ship and aircrafts of fornication and adultery. As you have noticed, we’ve spoken out against the winds of homosexuality, and rightfully so. But we have failed to rein in the tsunami of fornication. And when you look at the definition of fornication, the Greek word for fornication in some places in the NT is “pornea.”

Pornography is graphic illegal sex between two unmarried persons. This includes adultery. And yes, married couples foolishly engage in video taping their sex.

Because the pastors are engaged in porn and masturbation, we have very little, to nothing to stand on to curb this trend unless we repent before we are exposed by God. Some of us pastors are just as drunk with the wine of fornication as the world.

However, the Lord is plenteous in mercy and full of compassion. Slow to wrath and anger. When we turn from our wicked ways, He will abundantly pardon us and cleanse us with the precious blood of Jesus. His wrath will turn and His mercy will overwhelm us. Provided that we repent.

While watching Pastor Keith Moore ministering under a strong anointing. He used to teach at Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa OK under the late Dr. Kenneth Hagin and pastors a church in Branson MO, and Sarasota FL.

He shared about repentance.

A lost message these days.

He said that the worst place for anyone to be in is in a refusal to repent.

He said that the problem is not with God forgiving us. The problem is with people that refuse to repent. He shared that God will give us space to repent. But when you deliberately refuse to repent to continue in sin, the only thing left is the judgment of God. Paul shared that if we would judge ourselves we would not be judged so we would not be condemned with the world (see 1 Corinthians 11:31).

While it is never good to sin, we must never reach a place in our lives where we refuse to repent. The moment we deliberately refuse to repent, there is no hope. Judgment must fall. It doesn’t have to fall upon you. At any time before death, we can turn from fornication and live victorious lives in Jesus.

Here is the link to the articles found in the Christian Post.

The Price Of Pastoral Sexual Misconduct

When David committed adultery with Bathsheba and had her husband killed to cover up his sin, David was given space to repent. In his pride and arrogance, he thought that he got away with it. It was only until Nathan the prophet, confronted David.

Actually, it was the Lord that confronted David through the prophet.

The Lord is plenteous in mercy. The Lord is slow to wrath.

Nonetheless, He is still holy, righteous, and He must impose the penalty for violating the Word of God.

God delivered David from the lion and bear. God also delivered David from Goliath.

Yet, the Goliath in his flesh remained unconquered.

The Psalms that David sung and perhaps played showed that he was a man of prayer, praise and worship. As a man, it is easy to say that David had strong spiritual roots, a strong love for God, and a very strong will but when it came to sex, we see that the sexual misconduct of David was egregious. To outright have a trusted and loyal man murdered to cover his sin is vicious, callous, and cold.

According to the law for committing the crime of adultery, he and Bathsheba should have been put to death.

Leviticus 20:10 says, “The man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, he who commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress, shall surely be put to death.”

The Lord elected to make a point with leaders. He put the sin of adultery and murder away from David, Bathsheba gave birth for nothing because God killed his son, and his battles will be from his own household. Men will take David’s wives and lie with them out in the sun because what David did was done in secret (see 2 Samuel 12:7-4).

Many pastors believe that they too, will escape unscathed.

Not one pastor has ever escaped. Not one pastor has ever got more blessed. Not one pastor has ever returned to the power of the anointing that was once on their lives.

The mistresses and adulteresses never got the glory they sought for stealing a man from his wife.

They never achieve the place of the first wife.

Adultery is never rewarded. It’s condemned and God never celebrates the violation of covenant as established in Genesis 2:24.

Never let anyone, including a fallen leader fool you. Never let yourself fall into the trap of smooth words. God is not mocked.

Many of us that watched porn and masturbated fail to gain victory because of the inability to discipline our minds and flesh to refuse to touch other woman, ourselves, or both. Our secret thoughts run rampant while we portray ourselves as “holy men of God.” For some of us, far be it from the real truth. We harbor things in our hearts like the failure of the Israeli leaders of removing the high place for dual worship purposes.

This battle rages in us because we are attached to the pleasures of sin.

The battle was won on the cross of Christ. It would be there that the Lord would condemn sin in the flesh of the Lord Jesus. It is on that ol’ rugged cross that sin would be defeated. The crucified life is no longer evasive but when we evade the spot light of the Word on our hearts, the ol’ rugged cross is a thing we set aside to enjoy the pleasures of sin.

“O wretched man that I am. Who will deliver me from this body of death?” Paul’s answer is simple.

“I thank God – through Jesus Christ my Lord.”

The key is understanding the Lordship of Jesus.

James 4:7 said this….Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

Submitting to the Lordship of Jesus on a moment by moment basis ensures victory every time. It is only when we submit to the Lordship of Jesus that we are qualified to resist the devil. It is only then that the devil will flee from us. Just as the devil fled Jesus after 40 days of temptation in the wilderness.

Pastoral sexual misconduct is more normal than holiness these days.

This can change when we realize that we are hurting the heart of the Father in the same way that Adam and Eve hurt God. Our momentary lapse of judgment to experience the pleasure of that which is forbidden suppresses caring about how God feels about your sin.

Conviction is suppressed because compromise rules the heart.

Equally worse is the heart of the wife and children that were betrayed.

The wife goes through many emotional roller coasters trying to make sense of a selfish, senseless act of defiance of God and marriage vows. The children are left with an example of a callous act. Sometimes they grow up later and never recover. Commit the same sins, and continue a generation curse that could only be stopped when one child recognizes that sin never pays and its price is always death.

The reputation of a pastor is forever tarnished.

Proverbs 6:32-33 says “Whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding; he who does so destroys his own soul.  Wounds and dishonor he will get, and his reproach will not be wiped away.”

Foolishly, they return to minister in hopes that God would endorse them again, but that will never be the case.

Every man that committed adultery is on a failed comeback trail. A vain attempt to redeem themselves. Again, while the Lord does forgive once repentance is made, the former glory is never attained.

PREVENTION

Prevention begins when we allow ourselves to have eyes on our lives. The nature of Secret Sexual Sins is just that.

A secret.

As long as we prevent ourselves from harboring secrets in our minds, we can keep ourselves from falling into the trap of elitism, empowerment, entitlement, and expediency. When we believe that we are powerful enough to abstain, like Paul said, “Take heed, lest you fall.”

The anointing and grace of God in the pulpit is very easy to hide behind. When service is over, we are at our most vulnerable state. This is when we are attacked the most. A demonic plant of immoral women will look for these weaknesses and exploit them with their beauty. Or when you are having marital problems at home, the sexually immoral woman will act like Delilah, a prototype of Jezebel, have you lay on her lap, and divulge your heart.

In an emotionally charged moment, she makes her move, or you make your move, and adulterous sex is very easy to fall into.

As a pastor, you must never cross the professional line to take advantage of a woman’s vulnerability. Some pastors will use their oratorical skills and personality to woo women into the bedroom. Blinded by smooth words, she is easily taken advantaged of. At the same time, you cannot read between the lines when Delilah shows up to church.

Her beauty will smite you.

Proverbs 7:21-23 says, 

With her enticing speech she caused him to yield, with her flattering lips she seduced him. Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks, till an arrow struck his liver. As a bird hastens to the snare, he did not know it would cost his life.”

Proverbs 6:25-26 says, “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; and an adulteress will prey upon his precious life.”

What worse is that the adulterous woman is the staircase to hell.

Yes, according to Hebrews 13:4, God judges the adulterer and adulteress and according to 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, adulterers and fornicators will not inherit the kingdom of God. If you live an unrepentant life, you will go to hell. While God forgives, forgiveness is granted when we repent and sin no more. The grace of God doesn’t give us permission to sin. The mercy of God is designed to prevent that which we rightfully deserve.

Then there are the Jezebels that look for strong males, weak men in the pulpit. Jezebel will give up the use of her body to gain power. Her plan is very simple, yet effective. The end result is always inevitable. Her death. Not that all of them will die physically, but her plan dies when the church splits.

A strong man of God will never surrender his relationship with God for a cheap thrill.

It’s too high a price to pay.

Men that committed adultery never recover to the place when their anointing of the Lord is strong. They become a shadow of what they were. They never walk in the place of anointing because the Lord never condones the act of adultery. If you desire to throw ministry away, a pastor first must throw his relationship with the Lord away.

The precursor of throwing your relationship with the Lord away is when you have lust in your heart for other women. It is there that the imaginations of the heart run unchecked. TV commercials, the Internet, and other things is strategically laid out like a minefield. Every image that the eyes observe is intended to saturate your mind. It is is part of the plan of the devil to choke and strangle the Word in your heart. Overwhelmed with sexual images, the mind thirsts and hunger for sex.

The rest is history.

When we fail to govern our eyes, and cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, we store up within our mind sexual images that become high places for idolatrous worship. Ultimately, they become strongholds. Most images are intended to get a rise out of you. Other images are harmless but because of the unregenerate mind that is not renewed, we can make someone that is not dressed sexually very sexual (see Proverbs 27:20, Job 31:1, and Matthew 5:27-30).

Submitting to the Lordship of Jesus is the only way to combat this onslaught of the enemy.

When we obey the Lord to discipline our eyes and obey the prompting of the Holy Spirit to escape, victory is assured. The moment we disobey the prompting of the Holy Spirit and refuse to discipline our eyes, is certain destruction.

Sexual misconduct can be prevented.

It’s a matter of returning to the Lord and understanding the long term ramifications of falling into deliberate sin.

Secret Sexual Sin is never worth it because in the end, death is its only payment.

AL Sharpton: Overt Sexual Sins. Should We Be Surprised?

I came across an article about Al Sharpton that gave a reason why he cannot speak into the moral issues that plague the African American community. Sexual immorality among preachers. While adultery among preachers is not news, yet, we see that the prevalence of this activity indicates that there is no fear of God before their eyes.

It is apparent that to silence the voices of Civil Rights, as far as morals is concerned, give a man of God a red hot woman or homosexual male, and some money, ruin his marriage, and his silence is sealed on abortion and LGBT issues.

This means that the continued decline of the African American male continues unabated.

To me, this is a no brainer tactic of the devil.

When you have a sinfully depraved woman in your bed, you are not going to think about the righteousness of God. What matters is that you answer the call of lusts of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life that is not of the Father, but is of the world.

The dopamine effect will blind any man from good judgment.

A verse out of the satanic bible is apparent.

“Do as thou wilt.”

Here is the link.

While president Clinton was mending from the Monica Lewinski scandal, Jessie Jackson was counseling the president. Either before or just shortly thereafter, Jessie Jackson had a love child.

Yes, adultery among high level leadership, both spiritual and political is part of the big picture as to why this nation is on a perilous course of the sin of homosexuality.

We must look at history and see a serious pattern of defiance of the living God and His Word. If there is no fear of God before the eyes of these men, certainly, there is no fear of God before the nation as a whole. The fear of God is not just about being afraid of the God of heaven and earth. It is the utter contempt and disrespect that we have for a loving God who hasn’t done anything to harm us.

Yet, we are prepared to walk away from the Lord and think nothing of the millions of people trapped in the sin of sexual immorality.

In a nut shell, we do not give two cents to the Word of God.

Yet, God still loves us.

The prophet Malachi sums up this generation of preachers.

Malachi 2:5-9 says,

“My covenant was with him, one of life and peace,
And I gave them to him that he might fear Me;
So he feared Me
And was reverent before My name.
The law of truth was in his mouth,
And injustice was not found on his lips.
He walked with Me in peace and equity,
And turned many away from iniquity.
“For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge,
And people should seek the law from his mouth;
For he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts.
But you have departed from the way;
You have caused many to stumble at the law.
You have corrupted the covenant of Levi,”
Says the Lord of hosts.
“Therefore I also have made you contemptible and base
Before all the people,
Because you have not kept My ways
But have shown partiality in the law.”

Peter said something by the Spirit of God that is worthy to note.

2 Peter 3:1-4 says,

“Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior,

knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

This attitude is prevalent in half of the assemblies in America. “Where is the promise of His coming?”

Since the Lord isn’t coming, I believe I will live any kind of way. Since we are not going to see His coming in our life time, I might as well live the way I want to live. Such foolish thoughts. Whether you believe he is coming or not, you got one thing to worry about.

Your death!

Actually, two things.

Death and judgment (see Hebrews 9:27).

With this attitude, perverse thoughts are entertained. Preachers that once were holy before the Lord and the people have turned aside to vain things. The light they once walked in is dark. The people are walking with such depravity that the news of preachers living unholy lives is normalized and accepted.

Hence, the acceptance of the sin of homosexuality as a Civil Rights issue.

The further we go from God the closer to hell we get.

There is only one way to deal with this situation. Since they brought this out by sinning on this level, it is to be condemned. Reprehensibly condemned. If we fail to reveal our disgust and anger about preachers living in full plain sight or even in secret about their sexual sins, then we are complicit. We are culpable and we accept, without objection, the very sin that God is against.

This mindset is in every person that believes that the coming of the Lord is delayed. Believe what you want, but for those that willfully depart from the Lord will bust hell wide open. Sadly, people that do not know any better will tell you to leave them alone. Every man needs someone to love. You are foolish to even think that because of the righteous Word of God.

The Lord put restrictions in the Word of God about marriage so that whoredom would not plague the land. Yet, we see that to divorce and marry, divorce and marry again, or to separate, and have a sexually immoral dish on the side is acceptable.

Sin is never acceptable, for sin is defiance of God, and His Holy Word.

So when you see more of this mess plastered upon the Internet and news reels, just remember that the Lord is not pleased.

No one will escape the wrath of God that is to come if you deliberately step away from the Lord and His Word.
