A politician will do anything for votes, but when you find out that he lives with his “girlfriend,” that is not his wife, it’s fornication.
John the Baptist spoke to Herod and Herod believed that John was a righteous man. Herod knew that John was right. Herod and his new wife, Herodias, were in an adulterous relationship. No doubt she was furious and steaming mad. She wanted to have John killed so Herod put John in prison (see Matthew 14:1-12).
I know there is price for speaking the Word of political power but we all know what this leads to. A suppression of the truth that endangers preachers everywhere. We know well the risks but we must remain obedience and avoid turning the other way. We must not refuse to point sin out to save our necks.
It’s not coincidence that sexual immorality is connected to this. So it is very easy for Cuomo to advocate for homosexuality when you are a practicing fornicator.
So there has been much said by misguided people that we “can’t legislate morality.”
Well, look at the world “legislating immorality” at will, and daring anyone to preach righteousness.
Well, Mr. Cuomo, the Bible is clear. You are living in sin. Repent.
You are legislating immorality. Repent.
You are attempting to silence the voice of God and His Bible. Repent.
“For we are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the power of God unto salvation.” Romans 1:16
If people want to come out of sin, you can’t stop them. Millions have turned away from this perversion. And the LGBT camp themselves will tell you that no one is born as a homosexual. This lie has been refuted by lesbians and homosexuals.
Homosexuality is a sin of choice not a flaw of creation.
Sin came by the devil through man. Original sin did not come by or through God.
Therefore, even if you and other misguided politicians continue to legislate immorality, you can’t stop God and His Word. In fact, your own conscience is filled with the knowledge of God and it’s inescapable.
You are powerless to erase God from your mind. Even in hell, should you not repent, your very soul will remember God and His Word forever. Except it will be powerless to save, deliver, or set you free. The Lord is firmly Lord over all and there is nothing that you can do to stop it.
You can legislate to silence our voices but as long as we have breath, you and all others will hear the unadulterated Word of God. This Word will be heard in all eternity, forever, and there is nothing that you can do to stop it.
You know full well that God is against the sin of homosexuality, adultery, fornication, bisexuality, bestiality, pornography, and masturbation. Your own conscience has already judged you. And you are already condemned (see John 3:17-36) and the wrath of God abides on you and others.
The only thing that is left is the formality of the eternal sentence issued by the Judge of all the earth.
And that goes for you to, Mr. Christie.

“Finally, Zika reminds us that over and over nature is a formidable enemy,” he said. “We wish we knew more we wish we could do more. We know this is anxiety provoking for pregnant women and their families.”
Notice the phrase “nature is a formidable enemy.”
This is a direct source reporting on the new epidemic that is transmitted sexually.
While nature plays a role in infecting certain people around the world, we see that it cannot stop humans from engaging in illegal sex called adultery and fornication.
Now we are reminded that this disease can affect married couples that never engaged in illegal sex.
So what’s the point?
The point is simple. We know that people engage in homosexuality, bisexuality, fornication and adultery.
It’s a reminder that we need to abstain from sin.
It is also a reminder that these are the last days as the Lord Jesus told us.
Matthew 24:7-8 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
Note Strong’s Concordance definition of the word “pestilence.”
g3061. λοιμός loimos; of uncertain affinity; a plague (literally, the disease, or figuratively, a pest):— pestilence (- t).
AV (3)- pestilence 2, pestilent 1;
pestilence a pestilent fellow, pest, plague
So if there is any question about the last days, look no further. Many more may be headed this way but it is a sign of the end times before the coming of the Lord.
As a note, earthquakes have occurred in Oklahoma on a regular basis. Japan has had an eruption recently. Nations are rising against nations. Just look at the on going battle in Syria, Ukraine, Iraq, and other places. Famine is still an issue around the world.
Jesus said that “All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
The additional definition of sorrows is as follows……“the pain of childbirth, travail pain, birth pangs intolerable anguish, in reference to the dire calamities precede the advent of the Messiah.”
Like a woman that is about to give birth, these signs are upon us. Whether they are occurring rapidly or with varying intensity, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is that it is happening just like the Lord said.
That’s what we should be paying attention to. Unmistakeable, undeniable signs that point to the coming of the Lord.
So if you are still caught in the web of illegal sexual activity, Revelation 21:8, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Hebrews 13:4, and Matthew 15:18-19 is looking at all those that run the stop sign of God’s Word.
This was posted on my FB timeline.
There was a man in a certain country that solicited the services of a prostitute. It would be his last sex sin. The paramedics had to place his dead corpse on a gurney with the living prostitute on top.
Evidently, his penis enlarged itself in her vagina and possibly rigor mortis set in where she couldn’t disconnect from intercourse. Or possibly, the man took viagra and blood settle in his penis, who knows?
But according to Proverbs 7, the prostitute, as an immoral woman, is the staircase, descending into the “chambers of death.”
Chambers is defined as an “apartment.”
This is where we get “prison cells” from.
This man committed adultery or fornication, died in bed, and went directly to his eternal “prison cell.”
Such a story resonates. But people will not listen. They will continue to seek pleasures rather than seeking God.

A NEW STD IS AMONG US
MG it’s called.
Actually, according to the report, the disease has been around since the 1980’s and is curable. It’s one of the “pests” of sex that people wish would not happen.
Whenever a report on STDs comes out, it it clear that more people are infected and that they anticipate that more infections will be reported.
The one thing that I read is that they’ve tested 200 teens that were not sexually active and found that they all tested NEGATIVE for the disease.
At the end of the report, they stressed condoms.
Wait a minute……
Did anyone catch this?
If you are not sexually active, it means that you have no need for condoms, which proves one thing.
Psalm 107:17 says “Fools! Because of their transgressions and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.”
You may be insulted but according to Psalm 107:17, people are still acting like a fool. According to the Lord God in Genesis chapter 2, sex is reserved for married people, one man and one woman. Sexually transmitted diseases are designed to reinforce what God ordained.
When there is sex outside of this God ordained institution it carries a carries a consequential judgment. A penalty.
Should people die in their sins, Revelation 21:8 tells us that the “sexually immoral” will be cast into the lake which burns with fire and brimstone forever.
Remember. God created us in His image. His highest attribute is “HOLY.”
Sin is opposite of righteousness, holiness, and purity.
Since God created us, He makes the rules. When man violates His rules, there is a moral penalty applied.
Just like when we are driving and the cop or trooper pulls us over for speeding or other traffic violations, we are assessed a penalty.
Just like when we commit a crime, we are arrested, tried in court, and should we be found guilty, we do time in prison.
Did you just see the difference?
Illegal sex is like a traffic violation and the STD was the penalty.
The crime of an unrepentant life demands eternal prison time.
Many will say that this is not fair, that we should be able to do as we please.
Revelation 4:11 “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
God placed within this life all of the benefits of life provide that we follow what He said. When we do something apart from what He said, God demands justice. Remember, He is holy, righteous, full of compassion, love, mercy, and truth.
If God didn’t love us, He would never give us a chance.
In truth, and because He is holy and just, the Lord God judges us.
Without this eternal righteous standard, there wouldn’t be an incentive to repent, receive salvation, and obey His Word to live holy. The fact that the Lord gives us a chance to repent tells us that this is MORE THAN FAIR.
Especially in light of the fact that the Father demonstrated His love for us by sending His Son to die for our sins to completely pay our debt.
Notice Romans 5:8-9. “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.”
Many people have failed. This author included, but because of His mercy and compassion, He gives us all another chance, not a second chance because every one of us blew away that second chance.
We accept by grace through faith the gift of salvation to avoid the wrath of God. The STD is not the wrath of God. Should you die without Christ, hell, and then the lake which burns with fire and brimstone is the eternal wrath of God.
Believe me when I tell you, the tribulation period is also the wrath of God, poured out on the earth, but it pales in comparison to the eternal wrath of God for which there will be no relief.
Remember. God created us and He can do justly as He wishes.
Perhaps you are reading this and wonder if the Lord would forgive you for continuously blowing it. As the late David Wilkerson said, “sin and confess, sin and confess.”
That’s a merry go round that we need to stop. The constant cycle of guilt and remorse must come to a halt. God knows what’s best for us.
If we want sex, we must get married first.
Many want the benefits and gifts of marriage without actually getting married. That’s not how it works and you know it. Sex outside of marriage is destructive. It’s dangerous. It carries more woe for man and woman than imagined. Worse of all, it keeps you in bondage to sin as it’s slave.
Ask one slave if he or she ever loved being a slave.
They will truthfully answer that they wished that they were free.
Jesus can make you free indeed after you come to the knowledge of the truth.
Do you want to be free?
It’s up to you. The Lord Jesus suffered the penalty for every man and was imprisoned in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights to appease the just and righteous demands of the Holy and Righteous God.
All the hard work was done by Jesus to free you. You get to do the easy part.
Repent and abstain for the rest of your life until you get married.
Sadly, a lot of people will not listen. The other sad thing is that people, including me, thought that when we would get married that all of the sexual triggers, desires, urges and impulses would be satisfied.
To be able to have sex all of the time is a fantasy. We are still permitted to have sex with our married opposite sexed partner, but there’s a lot of dynamics that must be factored.
Timing and making time for sex. Work. Children. Emotion state of each other. Financial well being, and other issues makes it very challenging to have sex. This is another reason why many married people engage in the extracurricular activity of masturbation.
You could be in the heat of the moment but your partner is sick, not at home, went to bed early, emotionally detached from you because of personal issues, and a host of other reasons.
Even masturbation is out of bounds because God designed sex to be shared between two married persons of the opposite sex. Which means the fruit of the Spirit called “self control” must be employed until you can come together to have sex.
So the rule still exists and there is nothing that you or anyone else could do about it. Congress, the president, and SCOTUS can’t legislate against God’s ordinance to draft and pass a law to stop STD’s from occurring.
The lie of “safe sex” will not help.
Safe sex is a myth. The only safe sex is married, one male, one female for life, or abstinence. Condoms circumvent the Word of God and you know it. This is called “suppress the truth in unrighteousness.”
In other words, they hold down the truth so that it would not try to convict them. But when the truth is released, man is powerless to stop the convicting power of the Holy Spirit in the Word of God.
And even if you use a condom, there is always the possibility of a failure, leakage, or other common missteps. Because of the desire for full satisfaction, condom-less unlawful sex.
Sex is for married couples of the opposite sex.
Sexual immorality carries a consequential penalty and an eternal penalty should people remain unrepentant. God offers forgiveness and healing when we repent and place our full faith and trust in the salvation provided through the sacrificial life, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
Anyway, you can read the article here about MG.
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.
The eighth video from The Center For Medical Progress has been released.
Some of us are outraged that this is happening in America against the law, but the Lord Jesus said, “Because of lawlessness the love of many will grow cold.”
Yet, we still are refusing to at least address the fact that the fuel to this madness is adultery and fornication.
In any fire, you need three items. It’s called The Fire Triangle.
Eliminate any one of these three essential items and you cannot have a fire.
When you do not have sex, you cannot get pregnant.
While we are protesting, millions of people are committing adultery and fornication. Many women are getting pregnant outside of marriage. Many women are killing their unborn babies. Many women may or may not know that their child is used for research after they are violently extracted from the protection of the womb.
The women aren’t the only ones that carry the blame.
Mr. I. B. Stupid is also to blame.
It’s a lesson on who to avoid in marriage.
When it comes to sex, some men are stupid. And to top it all off, men advocate the killing of their child without any hesitation. At the drop of the hat, they willingly provide money to kill their own child. So two crimes, maybe three were committed. Coveting or lusting after a woman’s body, adultery or fornication, and murder.
So men do not walk away from this. Guilty, culpable, and if they do not repent, as well as the sinning woman, they are on their way to hell to burn for all eternity.
Many of these children experience the pain. In some cases, they experience the pain twice.
They are yanked from the womb alive and then dissected alive to harvest body parts.
There used to be a day when such crimes would have been charged already, but because we do not deal with adultery and fornication, abortion is not dealt with. The Bible is absolute. Exodus 20 tells us about the command of the Lord not to commit adultery. Leviticus 18 gives us the law regarding sexual purity. We can go on and on about the Bible’s prohibition on sexual conduct outside of marriage or with same sex, but because there is no outrage on this level, there can be no outrage on murder, let alone harvesting body parts and selling them for top dollar.
“The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
Man wil be paid for the sins committed. Adultery, fornication, homosexuality, and the murder of innocent children.
Also we got word that the temporary injunction imposed by a judge was lifted on Friday. Which means more evidence will be released. Thing is, will there be any criminal charges launched or will the love wax cold to where there will be no charges?
Will more babies die?
Will there be a complete and permanent stay of execution on the unborn?
Will we have the guts and the resolve to abolish the murderous practice of abortion?
Or will it be just business as usual?
The article containing the transcript of the eighth video and the actual video could be seen here.
There are many, men in particular, that give nonchalant responses to make it appear that they are not under porn’s power.
There is no humility, contriteness of heart, godly sorrow, and desire to please the Lord. They deflect intense questioning by avoiding the obvious issue of personal discipline. They run from accountability, prayer, obedience to the Word resulting in personal discipline. They believe it isn’t necessary. Their form of godliness is a ploy. They know how to give lip service as their heart is far from God. When they sit in front of their accountability partner, they play like they haven’t struggled.
They make believe that everything is fine and usually it’s a dead give away that you relapsed back into porn and masturbation.
Little do they know that those of us that have walked in this same deception can smell sin a mile a way. We don’t know everything like God but there are certain undeniable signals that indicate that you’ve been playing with yourself.
Since we’ve been delivered, we know what it looks like to keep a secret and play like we haven’t sinned. They always give the appearance that they are in control but we all know that they are raging on the inside of their flesh and mind. They can’t wait until the pressure to come clean is off so that they could resume the business of flesh. In fact, you’ve already planned out what you are going to do that evening when the lights go off and when your wife is asleep, or in another room.
Your wife still feels you are distant, cold and rarely engage in meaningful sex. In fact, she feels dirty when you have sex. It feels like you have brought what you were watching into the bedroom. Furthermore, you ask her to do certain things that you’ve watched porn stars do and she refused.
You get frustrated, and cut your wife off as you return to porn and masturbation to satisfy your perverted sexual fantasy.
Does any of this sound like you?
It’s because they are still mastered by masturbation and porn.
Listen to the words of Paul by the Spirit of God in 1 Corinthians 6:12 “All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.”
When it comes to porn an masturbation, we see that those that do not take the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ serious enough, they are under “its power.”
In Romans 6:14 Paul also said this.
“For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”
The reason why sin cannot have dominion over us is because the Lord Jesus broke the power of sin when the Father placed upon the Lord Jesus our sin. The power and guilt of sin was thoroughly destroyed and the devil who had power can no longer hold men in bondage.
Hebrews 2:14-15 says “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”
Jesus took on flesh and by living a sinless life, conquered the power and guilt of sin. It was at this point that on the cross, the Father was able to put on Jesus the sin of the whole world and did a threefold work.
- He lived sinless.
- He became an appeasing sacrifice.
- He put away the power of sin.
So what is holding you back from walking free from porn and masturbation?
The answer is found in your will to yield to the broken power of sin.
It’s no different than a cop putting handcuffs on you that can’t lock.
No different than a correction officer placing you in a jail cell and leaving the door open for you to walk out at anytime.
Hence, what Paul said is true.
You are not brought under the power of porn and masturbation.
However, because of your desire to fulfill the lust in your mind and flesh, you allow yourself to be ruled by it. You allow yourself to be governed by it. You allow it to be your god. You obey your god of lust.
At any time you can walk away from porn and masturbation. Because Jesus broke the power of sin, there is nothing that the devil could do to lock the handcuffs or close the prison door.
So being that the Lord Jesus did the hard work on the cross, paid our debt in full, and released us from this bondage, what are you willing to do to maintain your freedom?
When I was into masturbation, I looked for an accelerant. Porn became that accelerant which took me further than I wanted to go. When I was dealing with sexual sins, the demons behind the power were pulling me further into the dark world of sexual perversion.
In this dark world, I began to accept watching threesome sex where homosexuality is part of the package.
Then it pulls you into thinking about prostitution, fornication, and adultery where acting out what pleasure you are seeing becomes an insatiable desire. You cannot watch porn, masturbate, and not be tempted to take things to the next level.
When you are dealing with masturbation, it is pretend sex. You are imagining having sex with that person. There comes a point where you will be tempted, if you haven’t already, to move from pretend to reality. Men and women get frustrated in watching others perform because they want to participate in experiencing their pleasure.
Not realizing that you are being lured into the bottomless dark abyss of sexual immorality.
It is there that the bite is almost inescapable.
It’s like watching seals trying to evade the bite of the shark. Sooner or later, the shark will get it. It’s just a matter of time.
For most people, they desire to break free but each time, the pleasure becomes overwhelming. You become hooked and you refuse to let it go. For some, no matter what incentive is given to be holy and pure before God, you find yourself touching yourself sexually. For some, the coming of the Lord could happen at any moment, yet, because of the desire to fulfill a sexual fantasy, who cares about the Lord’s coming?
Revelation 21:8 is incentive enough for me.
The sexually immoral will be cast into the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.
Sadly, this will not be enough incentive for they have “…no fear of God before their eyes.”
One of the beautiful things about the Lord is that He is “not willing than any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”
In other words, your hopelessness is not finite until you pass into eternity without repentance and faith towards God.
Billions by the end of the day will have clicked a porn site to masturbate off of it. You do not have to be one of them.
The same grace that was offered to me to set me free from sin to never sin porn and masturbation again is available to you.
Romans 10:17 says “So then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.”
You have to trust the Lord that He will satisfy that deep longing in your heart to where you do not need porn and masturbation any more. That’s what faith is about. The willingness to trust God for the rest of your life to do without porn and masturbation.
It’s up to you to refuse to yield to its power.
Here are some recommended steps.
- Prayer and fasting. Fasting food, television, Internet, magazines, social media, evil connections of friends, etc.
- Eyes on your life. It’s called accountability. Someone that you not only feel safe with, but someone that is willing to hold your feet to the fire to help you when you are tempted.
- Read your Bible every day. Recommended Scriptures….Psalm 119:9-11, Job 31:1, Proverbs 27:20, Matthew 5:27-30, Matthew 6:22-23; Romans 13:11-14, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; 7:1; Ephesians 6:10-18; Romans 12:1-2, Hebrews 4:12-16; Romans chapter 6 and chapter 8. 1 Corinthians 9:27, Galatians 5:22. 1 Corinthians 10:13.
- Radical Amputation. The willingness to disconnect yourself from watching movies, shows, and other forms of entertainment known to have sex in any form that arouses the senses. Including removing or disconnecting televisions, satellite, cable, and internet connections at home. The willingness to avoid watching sports, morning, afternoon or evening news and weather channels known to have sexy women and shows that are known to have commercials with sex themes to sell items. Avoid books, magazines, fitness magazines, and other material that may bait or plant a seed to entice or incite the flesh and mind.
This is how you exercise your senses to discern both good and evil according to Hebrews 5:12-14.
It’s very easy to receive the initial deliverance. The work is in the maintenance of the deliverance. How bad do you want to keep your deliverance?
If you do these three things every day and don’t look back, if you put your full faith and trust on the grace of the Lord, you will not be brought under its power for the rest of your life.
Hebrews 13:4 says, “Marriage is honorable among all and the bed undefiled, but adulterers and fornicators God will judge.”
1 Corinthians 7:1-2 says, “Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.”
It bewilders me that young couples fornicate. Why is there such a problem with young couples waiting to get married first, then having sex?
It’s call “Selling Out.”
Hebrews 12:14-17 says,
“Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:
looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God;
lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;
lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright.
For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.”
Many believe that this statement about Esau was just a spiritual connotation. While we do not have any real corroborating references in the Scriptures about Esau being a fornicator and profane person, it seems that the writer of the book of Hebrews received this as revelation as directed by the Holy Spirit.
For instance, in the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the Lord Jesus revealed the source of Israel’s debacle in the plains of Moab by the hands of Balaam. Balak solicited the services of the double agent Balaam. Balaam was a seer but he was also a diviner. Balaam couldn’t get the Lord to curse the children of Israel because God said that He would not change His promise to bless.
So Balaam taught the children of Israel fornication.
Usually, without corroborating Scripture, it is dangerous to take one verse of Scripture and presuppose, because Scripture interprets Scripture by the Holy Spirit.
2 Peter 1:20-21 says this that “…knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”
However, there is another rule of interpreting the Scriptures that is in play. All Scripture is to be taken literally unless otherwise indicated. And then there is 2 Timothy 3:16-17.
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
Thus, we can safely conclude that Esau was literally a fornicator and a profane person.
In Genesis 25:29-34, Esau sold out his birthright after returning exhausted from hunting. Jacob was able to take from Esau that which is prized.
There are clear advantages of being the firstborn because the inheritance and authority in the family is given over to the firstborn. The blessing is also inherently passed to the one that is born first in the family.
When it was time for Esau to receive the blessing, Jacob tricked his father, Isaac into thinking that Jacob was Esau. Isaac blessed Jacob and the rest was history. Esau, despised his birthright but when it was time to receive the blessings of the firstborn, it was too late.
So what is the connection between the birthright and fornication?
When you despise holiness and render holiness useless, it is easy to fornicate. It’s easy to commit any other sin for that matter. When you despise your rights and privileges as the “firstborn” in the family, it is easy to sin.
There’s many members in the Body of Christ that despise their relationship with the Lord. They long to sin like sinners. They get exhausted in maintaining their holiness to the Lord and they are quick to sellout.
Listen to the prophet Malachi in chapter 3 and verses 13 through 15.
“Your words have been harsh against Me,”
Says the Lord,
“Yet you say,
‘What have we spoken against You?’
You have said,
‘It is useless to serve God;
What profit is it that we have kept His ordinance,
And that we have walked as mourners
Before the Lord of hosts?
So now we call the proud blessed,
For those who do wickedness are raised up;
They even tempt God and go free.”
In Matthew 26:41, the Lord Jesus gives us a very powerful tool against the sins of the flesh.
“Watch and pray, lest you fall into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing but the flesh is weak.”
Paul gave us these words in 1 Corinthians 10:12.“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.”
1 Corinthians 6:18 “Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.”
1 Thessalonians 4:3-8 “For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God;
that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified.
For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit.”
Peter gives us these words in 1 Peter 5:8-9. “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…”
I give these Scriptures in hopes that we would never fall prey to the devil and sellout.
This is not the time to give in to the dictates of the flesh, to indulge in the flesh. To do so will cost you.
Esau went to Isaac and cried tears in repentance to get the blessing of the firstborn, but it was too late. There are many fornicators that seek to have that place in God they once had. And they will never get it again. Do not get the Bible twisted. As NT believers, 1 John 1:9 is there to ensure that we get it right with God in our hearts.
We do “have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the Righteous.”
Jesus pleads our case before the Father and the Father forgives our sins and remembers them no more. However, to have that place we once had before committing the sin of fornication, well, there’s a lot to lose.
What is lost?
The momentum to be used by God the way the Lord used you. The people of God once held you in high standards with the Lord.
We must remember that although David’s sin was removed according to the prophet Nathan, yet, David, the one that killed Goliath, did not finish well. He was chased to death (literally) by his own sons. Not for the sin of adultery with Bathsheba, but for numbering the people. From that point on, the decline of David’s rule underscored the importance of staying holy before God.
The whole purpose of sin is to stop the power of God from operating in your life. To diminish your usefulness to the Master. To bring down those around you. And if you are not careful, to take you straight to hell (see 1 Corinthians 6:9-10).
When two unmarried people lock hips and lips, it says a lot about their morals.
For the male, it says that he treats you less than a lady. For the lady, it reveals to that male that you are cheap and easy. You are a dime a dozen.
The Lord treats you better than that, young lady.
And to sell out to a male that had only one thing on his mind is a clear indication of the kind of life you will have when you are with him if you decide to get married to him. This means that he is capable of fornicating with other women, if he hasn’t done so already.
And should you become pregnant, you know he is on the hunt. Males that are on the hunt for females is no different than a male lion with a pride. When one lioness is pregnant, the male lion has no problems. He has plenty in his pride to mate with.
Such is the case with humans.
Males that are not monogamous has a “pride.”
Because men are “Wired For Intimacy,” his urges and impulses will rise and he will go hunting if he is sexually turned down. Should the woman get pregnant and should she give birth, her maternal instincts will kick in. Her prioritized concern will be about the child. Which means that if there is no sex because she is more concerned about the child, the man will feel neglected and seek intimacy in more ways than one.
Porn, masturbation, prostitutes, tail on the side, adultery.
However, the worst feeling is knowing that the Holy Spirit is grieved.
Nothing hurts the heart of the Father more than a child of His that deliberately betrays the Lord.
“Godly sorrow works repentance, leading to salvation, not to be regretted.”
In many of our local assemblies, single women make the choice to bypass the Word of God to hold out. The devil lies to them and they easily fall prey to the devil. That one moment of pleasure has turned into a whirlwind of trouble for 18 to 25 years. She struggles to make things work.
The cover up is that most males and females that engage in Secret Sexual Sins, they get married. Truth of the matter, if she is pregnant, she will begin to see the true character of the male she fornicated with. A woman will not know the true measure of a man until the child comes.
As a potentially unrelated side note, male lions are fascinating, in that they reveal some character traits of human males. Female lions need the protection of the male lions from other male lions seeking a pride. So the female lions hunt. The males lie around all day until dinner, then eat. Then the female lions are allowed to take the rest of what’s left to feed the rest of the pride. The males patrol their territory and then return to check on their pride, eat dinner, and go to sleep.
But one striking feature that stands out is that when male lions want a pride, they seek out female lions so they could mate. If there are any cubs from the last male lion, they kill the last male lion’s offspring so that the females would mate.
My point is clear.
Unregenerate man is ruthless as a lion and will “hunt.”
Thus, endangering the nucleus of the family.
That’s why it’s important to abstain from fornication, adultery, bisexuality, homosexuality, and do it God’s way.
We can never go wrong when we do things the way God intended. We reduce the amount of trouble that many families encounter. It’s bad enough that the things that happen in life happen but we do not have to add to the mix with our own inability to maintain our sanctification.
On another different note, too many of us place 100% of the blame on Planned Parenthood.
Before you think that I am advocating abortion, I am not.
This death mill is there to take advantage of the sin of fornication and adultery.
When we sin against God, they open their doors to “help” man kill the image of God.
Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills must be closed but how will they close if we insist on committing adultery and fornication? If you cut off the means by which something is necessary, you eliminate their usefulness. There would be no need for abortion if people would get married and have children. Abortion would return to being rare (medical necessity, confirmed and verified, that the life of the mother is viably threatened).
Until there is abstinence, murdering the unborn will continue.
Do not sell out your birthright. Pursue holiness.
No holiness, no Lord, no heaven.
It’s just that simple.
