Sexual Immorality & Homosexuality: A Sign Of The End Times

Since there has been a good head of steam to legitimize the sin of homosexuality, the foundation was laid years ago when adultery and fornication became a regular occurrence on the job, in church, and in other places.

The continued erosion of righteousness, loss of morals, and a clear disregard for the Word of God undoubtedly was a plan of the devil long ago.

Here is a Scripture to consider.

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 (mockers) 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.”

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge…” (Proverbs 1:7a)

As a little child, I would remember that when dad or mom would tell us to behave and then walk out the door, if we misbehaved, we would be in big trouble.

Today it’s no different.

The Lord Jesus went back to heaven to be seated at the right hand of God, but He said He would be coming back.

Well, just like what the Spirit of God said through Peter, many mocked the coming of the Lord. They are walking according to their own lusts. They all say, “Nothing’s changed. We might as well keep on doing what we were doing all along.”

Only, it’s gotten worse.

In the blink of an eye, homosexuality is gripping the nation. The next thing on the horizon is the forcing of the church to accept homosexuality. Talk about forcing something down someone’s throat?

Sexual immorality is one of the signs of the end times.

Jesus alluded to this in Luke 17:26-30 “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”

In Noah’s day, the people’s imaginations were only evil continually. In Lot’s day, perversion called homosexuality permeated the region. In both instances, destruction came.

The push is on to legalize and normalize homosexuality in this nation. In other parts of the world, we see that the sin of homosexuality is normalized. But at a great price. Proponents of the sin of homosexuality hate the Scriptures.

In the Word of God is God’s mind about the sin of homosexuality.

The sin of homosexuality is “an abomination.” Leviticus 18:22.

In the book of Romans, chapter one, those that practice the sin of homosexuality receive “…in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.” Romans 1:27.

As I have said previously, proponents of homosexuality can make all the laws they want to legalize homosexual marriage, but they cannot write laws to stop the “penalty of their error which was due.”

In other words, they cannot stop diseases from manifesting in their bodies should they insist on continuing in sexual sins.

The two eras of time, Noah and Lot, is a clear sign that we are in the last days and that the coming of the Lord is nearer than when we first believed.

Jesus said, Because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”  Matthew 24:12.

1 John 3:4, “Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.”

The fool-safe proof that the sin of homosexuality is lawlessness is the manifestation of sexually transmitted diseases.

Because people do not believe the Word of God, the diseases that manifest ought to be deterrence enough. However, we see that they refuse the admonition and prohibition of the Scriptures, and the disease manifests. “The penalty of their error which was due.”

Many people are inflicted with HIV/AIDS and other STDs, some as a direct involvement in the sin of homosexuality, others as a result of “collateral damage.”

The suffering continues but it is a clear sign that the Lord Jesus in on His way to the earth and that these are the last days.

It is only through the love expressed by the Father that we can have eternal life.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Think about it.

How much time do you have left on earth? Whether the coming of the Lord, or your death? Whichever comes first.

The last days is happening and there is nothing that you could do to stop it. The real question is this.

Will you be in Christ or will you suffer the eternal penalty unnecessarily?

It’s up to you.

Homosexuality In The Prison System

Dr. Ben Carson made a statement that everyone knows is true that the prison system turns straight people into homosexuals. And that homosexuality is a choice. All sin is a choice.

Now the system of correction is not directly at fault but the system within the system is at fault. What is that system within a system? It’s when inmates make up the rules and the corrections department either allows it or they haven’t discovered a way to discourage the sin of homosexuality.

There is no question that the prison system does have rules prohibiting homosexuality or contact with opposite sex guards, but we all know that they are circumvented. Therefore, we should not be surprised at Dr. Carson’s statement. It seems that the media is attempting to demonize Dr. Carson because he is considering a run for the presidency of the United States. However, we see that, unflinchingly, Dr. Carson is making a statement that America must face.

We also see that when there is a massive problem, we run from the solution. That is, until it directly involves us.

Case in point, when professed Christian parents have children that turn towards the sin of homosexuality. Instead of remaining true to the Lord, the parents run from the Scriptures to embrace their children. The point is not to destroy the child, but to tell the child that they must turn from sin and return to the Lord or be destroyed.

“The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

Harsh?

Unloving?

Well, when you love the Lord more than your children, the Bible is clear about it.

Matthew 22:37-40 says, “Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. ’On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

When it comes to loving the Lord, He demands absolute loyalty and love above every thing and everybody, including your children. When you love your children above the Lord, we must remember that we are created, God is the Creator.

Almost every parent is surprised when they hear that their child became a homosexual. The normal reaction of a parent is to support their child’s homosexuality. However, if you remember correctly in the Scriptures, the sons of Aaron burned strange fire on the altar of incense and both sons were killed immediately. The Lord told Aaron not to mourn for them. Don’t shed one tear. Why? It’s called being true to the Lord even when your children turns from the Lord.

In another place in Scripture, the sons of Eli committed sexual immorality and they were killed in battle. Eli died when he heard that the ark of the covenant was taken and that his sons were killed. The Lord told Eli that he honored his sons above the Lord. There is a steep price to be paid when you honor your sons above honoring the Lord.

Many will say that this is cold. However, we must remember that the Lord, He is God. He has standards that are above the ways of man. To disrespect the Lord in honoring our children’s practice of that which He declared an abomination is an insult to the Creator.

The statement and the person (Dr. Carson, or any person) should not be demonized because of the truth.

The article from CBS is a veiled attempt to discredit him from the presidency.

The homosexual controlled media will use everything in their power to discredit anyone that reveals the truth about the sin of homosexuality. From name calling (bigotry, discrimination, homophobia, etc.) to writing laws to force the will of homosexuality on genuine, authentic, God fearing, Bible believing and practicing people.

We that believe in the Lord Jesus cannot make or force people into becoming followers of Christ. We give you the command to repent and believe the gospel. It is entirely up to you to accept this generous offer or reject it. However, there is a penalty for rejecting a gracious offer. Romans 6:23.

We all know that homosexuality takes place in prison. It’s well documented.

Many will say that this demonizes homosexuality and homosexuals that are not incarcerated.

Homosexuality, whether practiced in the system or out is already demonized, for all sins come from the evil one. Men and women just act out their nature that comes from the devil (see John 8:44 and 1 John 3:4-10).

What is taking place is that the culture in the United States fosters the sin of homosexuality and the culture” will do everything to make the sin of homosexuality seem normal, thus acceptable. At the same time, anyone that rejects their normalcy of the sin of homosexuality will be severely blacklisted.

There is nothing normal about sin.

In 1991, while preaching in Rikers Island (C76), I observed a group of transvestites walking the corridor to eat lunch. Apparently, they were separated from the general prison population. And for good reason. While we would be preaching the Word of God, we would also notice the homosexual spirit on the men in the service.

It’s almost no different in our churches today. We allow practicing homosexuals to play organ, piano, or sing praise and worship. We allow them to preach and pastor churches.

Homosexuality has been a part of the so called Christian worship service. But a cleansing is taking place and for some, they will be set free. For others, there will be an exposure that will bring them front and center to be offered a chance to be delivered.

Homosexuality is a known activity because men are incarcerated for a time. In some prison systems, contact with people is extremely limited. In one case, the only way prisoners could talk to relatives or friends is but way of video phone. This reduces contraband from entering the prison population but it also reduces any affection to be experienced by the prisoner.

In another place, women are “hooking up” with other women in lesbian relationships on prison grounds. There is no question that the system is fostering the sin of homosexuality. Sex is a very powerful drug. Humans were created by the Lord to marry, copulate and bond. When a person commits a crime, they are cut off from any affection. Prisoners are left to find ways to feel wanted, appreciated, experience affection, and sex behind bars is sought for to replace that void.

We all know that when a man is incarcerated, sex is obviously withheld.

When men cannot have sex with the opposite sex in adultery or fornication, or their wives, we all know that the next “best” thing is homosexuality. In watching NatGeo of certain Prison shows, many men that look straight will tell you straight up that they have sex with men. They walk up to the one they want. They give them the ultimatum. Homosexual sex willingly or by force.

Yes, men on men rape is a regular thing.

Same sex rape is a serious problem in the military.

Since DADT was repealed, same sex rape increased in the military.

We should not be surprised at Dr. Carson’s answer because of the reality of what is actually going on in the system behind the system. So when some of the prisoners return to life outside, the lifestyle comes with them. For many young traumatized males, this is all they know. The stigmatization puts incredible strain on them and since they do not know how to handle it, the spirits of sexual immorality drive them to places where what they’ve experienced is furthered.

Bound by their desire for MSM and bound by their desire for WSW, they pursue sin.

So instead of labeling Dr. Carson as a demon, we need to take a good look at what is already going on in the prison system.

That it is true, and leave it at that.

AARP And LGBT

American Association of Retired Persons (logo).png

AARP & LGBT are connected?

This isn’t news to most of the American world.

However, it was news to me when I looked on the AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) site to renew my membership.

Everyone knows that when you reach the age of 50, AARP reminds you with an email so that you could join the ranks of the 50 and over club. No one is really excited about getting up in age because it is a signal that you are entering the back end of life.

But all of a sudden, I noticed on the bottom of their web page their support for LGBT.

Let’s face it.

Almost every business and sadly, some professed believers, except the holy believers of the Lord Jesus Christ, and I am not talking about catholicism, will support the sin of homosexuality. Most businesses and gay affirming houses of demonic worship will have some statement of inclusion or outright support for the sin of homosexuality.

You can’t be a house of the Lord to worship God while supporting the very sin God sent His Son into the earth to die for.

As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Bible is clear about God’s stand against the sin of homosexuality.

God is clear as a bell about it. Genesis chapters 18 and 19, Leviticus 18:22, Romans 1:18-32, and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

A gay or practicing homosexual cannot inherit the kingdom of God. Just like adulterers, fornicators, effeminates, sodomites, extortioners, liars, thieves, murderers, etc. Matthew 7:21-23 is clear as a bell. Those that practice lawlessness and those that refuse do what the Lord Jesus said will be told by the Lord, “Depart from Me you that practice lawlessness.”

So, in the best interest of keeping my relationship with the Lord, I had to say goodbye to AARP.

Almost everything that we buy, our proceeds go to support the sin of homosexuality. Starbucks, Home Depot, The Girl Scouts, The Boy Scouts, and other organizations.

The Lord is a jealous God and He will have no other gods before Him (see Exodus 20:3).

The driving force behind these businesses is money.

Jesus said this in Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

Paul said in 1 Timothy 6:10 “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

Money is driving the reason why businesses support the sin of homosexuality. So, in broad daylight, if you declare as a business your unwavering support for LGBT, you are in the money.

The moment that you declare that you do not support the sin of homosexuality is the moment that you are listed as a bigot, discriminate, a gay hater, and of course, the “H” word.

HOMOPHOBE!!! 

And in most cases, you are sneered at and cut off from any of their money.

When the god of money speaks, either you listen or you are blacklisted as a business that is against the god of homosexuality called LGBT.

As one person put it so appropriately……“I’d rather be judged by the world that has no hell to put me in than to be judged by Almighty God that is fully capable of putting all sinners into the lake that burns with fire and brimstone.”

Jesus, the One every one says is about love, said these indisputable words in Matthew 10:28.

“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

You see, in the figment of their imagination, they have erected a god that favors their sin. That’s why they want SSM. Marriage legitimizes a relationship. But only God legitimizes a relationship according to Genesis 2:24 and Matthew 19:4-5. Since God created male and female. Since God brought the woman to the man. Since God joins male and female, man doesn’t have the right to alter, substitute, change, or adjust to their liking what marriage is supposed to be.

Since male and male, or female and female cannot copulate, it is further evidence that incompatibility proves the righteousness of God. You can’t connect two male prongs and you cannot connect two outlet plugs.

One has to be male and the other has to be female.

Very simple concept, yet, it is very difficult concept for practicing homosexuals.

Few of us understand to some extent in our finite minds the magnitude of His death, burial, and resurrection. Jesus didn’t just come to be a nice prophet, teacher, and prolific speaker. Jesus is the Lamb of God sent into the earth by the Father to pay for man’s sins by dying on the cross. God placed on Jesus our chastisement. Jesus bore our punishment to free us from the power and guilt of sin.

To reject so great a salvation or to try to live in sin and try to claim some righteousness of our own is a big disrespect to the One who paid our penalty.

Money is the driving force behind these advertisements.

So, either you support them or you are cut off from their money. In some states, you will be taken to court for defamation, discrimination, and bigotry. They will make you go through some sort of “sensitivity training.”

Which is just another form of brainwashing you to make righteousness out to be bad and sin to be good.

Sensitivity to the sin of homosexuality and insensitivity to the Word of God.

Many homosexuals are hurt because the Bible rejects their sin. We never look at it from the Lord’s perspective that man hurt God by walking away from His will and standard. Sin is destructive. Sin leads to death. All the Lord wanted to do is save man from sin so that man wouldn’t destroy himself.

Yet, man wants destruction than life.

So goodbye AARP.

The Only Answer For Ferguson, MO. It’s A Brainer.

The decision not to indict Officer Wilson devastated the nation.

Michael Brown, an unarmed man was gunned down by Wilson. It is understandable that people would be upset, however, a deeper issue is being missed.

150,000 persons pass into eternity every single day. 1.8 persons per second.

As I have said before. No one is really thinking about the fact that Michael Brown is in eternity. What part of eternity? Most people want to assume that he is either in heaven or hell. If he made repentance to Jesus, then it’s a no brainer. If he failed to do so, he is in hell. Just because he may have died a horrible death, it doesn’t automatically award a person a place in heaven.

But the question is about you now. In a nano second, you and I could be plunged into eternity. Where will you spend eternity if you are not saved?

In hell.

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27.

Few of us will look at it from the eternal perspective because of the darkness of men’s heart.

Just a few moments ago, a bunch of clergy in Ferguson stood on the stage with the mayor of Ferguson.

I must say that this is the day where preachers are ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are ashamed to preach the only solution to man’s woe’s. So long as man refuses to come to the Lord in repentance, more incidences will ensue. Eternity is a long time to think about why people refuse to repent of sin and be born again.

What’s more important to us is “race relations.” Not eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Some will say that I am missing the point. No. Because at the end of the day, everyone’s grain of sand in the hour glass will fall and the end of life will be realized.

Social injustice is first a spiritual injustice. What is the spiritual injustice? As long as man is in sin and refuses to come to the Lord to be saved from sin, more Fergusons will happen. Spiritual injustice? One person said that there is a “vacuum of leadership from the Black community.”

There is a spiritual vacuum of pastoral leadership to preach and live the gospel of Jesus Christ. But it’s not every where. There are pastors that are living and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in Ferguson, but people refuse to come to be saved by the Lord.

Here is the reason.

As long as the heart of man “is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked,” nothing will change.

More deaths will occur.

The Lord Jesus said this….John 3:17-21 says, “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “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.”

Paul said this in 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”

You see, it wasn’t the white man that won. The real person behind the scene won.

“…the god of this world.”

He is called satan or adversary. He is not a figment of a person’s imagination. Devils and satan exist and because men reason this into their minds that they do not exist and that Jesus is a myth, they are blinded.

Many will not believe the Bible, the Word of God. Many will not believe that Jesus is the Only Way, Truth, and Life (see John 14:6). Many will not believe that “Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

Many will mock, sneer, and scorn the true Word of God.

Lastly, clergy that stand in front of microphones and are ashamed of speaking about the Only Solution, the Lord Jesus Christ, are compromised. When you are ashamed of the name that is above every name, they have denied the Lord.

Paul said, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation…” Romans 1:16. 

It’s not the power of prayer that gets things done.

It is the God that answer prayer that is the true power behind our praying.

When you hear people say that they have the power of prayer, it’s a dead giveaway that they think that they can answer their prayers by just praying.

God answers prayer but the people that pray cannot compromise the protocol of prayer.

Praying to the Father in Jesus’ name.

They cannot withhold the name of Jesus as was seen in the Ferguson press conference with the clergy.

Compromise is a sure fire way to keep God out of the affairs of man. Especially when you are ashamed to use the name that is above every name.

When you call on the Father in Jesus’ name, there is no shame. Because they are afraid to speak the name of Jesus, the Lord will deny them before the Father and the holy angels. When you fear man more than you fear God, it’s a revelation of the true god you serve. You may not like this, but I am not writing this to be liked.

The truth is what it is.

Deal with it.

 

Pulpit Whoremongers – Parishioner Whores

There probably was a time when the fear of God served as an incentive to abstain from the sins of the flesh.

Since the day the dispensation of grace entered, the devil uses the same old tactics to trip up the believer.

In the OT, Numbers chapters 19-25 revealed the reason why the children of Israel were stopped in the plains of Moab.

Sexual immorality.

According to the Lord Jesus in the Book of Revelation, Jesus revealed the reason behind Israel’s failure. Balak, king of Moab, was in fear of the children of Israel because of the other nations that were wiped off of the face of the earth. The Moabites were so fearful that they got physically sick. To know that you are about to be killed would probably make anyone sick.

Balak asked for the services of a seer. The double agent, Balaam. Balak paid a hefty diviner’s fee to get Balaam to get the God of heaven to curse the children of Israel. God told the prophet that He cannot reverse the blessing. Not that God would reverse it because a deeper reason as to why God wouldn’t curse Israel is before Him.

The Seed (the Lord Jesus) was determined by the plan and purpose of God to come through Abraham.

To curse the children of Abraham would mean the end of the plan of God to send the Seed to save man. Below this is the fact that the Lord, by His immutable counsel, blessed Abraham and God will not change His mind (Malachi 3:6).

To further pervert man, sexual immorality is the one thing that was used in an attempt to pervert the promise of the Seed as spoken by the Lord in Genesis 3:15.

Sexual perversion among pastors is still a major issue. More than ever, it is being addressed, but not regularly. It’s only when we read about another pastor falling into Secret and Overt Sexual Sins that we start talking about it.

In most of Paul’s writings, we see that he addressed it regularly.

Notice what he said in Ephesians 5:3-7 “But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.

For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.

Therefore do not be partakers with them.” 

The word “fornication, fornicator.” It means “whoremonger.”

Pathetically, pastors that are not disciplined in their private lives, will be exposed publicly.

The combination of pastoral whoredom and parishioner whores is still wreaking havoc in the church.

Just because there are other subjects to deal with, if we fail to keep a watch in this area, we will get into trouble.

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

If the disciples could fall asleep, there is no difference in falling into sexual sins. It is when we are not attentive to the moments of vulnerability that we fall into sin. Temptation comes at any time, however, it is when we are weak that temptation is at its strongest. The will to fight isn’t as potent. That’s why every opportunity of temptation is used to weaken your resistance.

Temptation is like a torture test.

Each drip is designed to break your will, where you just can’t resist that one hot looking man of woman. Sooner or later, if you are not careful, you will give in to this temptation and fall into sin. That’s why Jesus went to the place of prayer regularly. To avoid the place of falling into sin as a result of being tempted. The obedience He learned (see Hebrews 5:8 and Philippians 2:8), paid off and when it was time for Him to die, there would be no question about His resurrection.

The glory that He had before the foundation of the world would be restored to Him.

Just as Hebrews 12:2b said

“…who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

His obedience earned Him the name that is above every name, a seat at the right hand of God, and authority over everything in heaven, earth, and under the earth. Until all things are subdued and then the Father resumes as Lord of all according to 1 Corinthians 15.

There is no question about the ratio of men to women. Predominantly, more women are in church than men. Women are not the problem. Sexually immoral women are part of the problem. The combination of sexually immoral women and sexually immoral pastors raises the potential of a scandal. When it comes to scandals, it all started years ago when sexual inquisitiveness entered people at an early age.

For people, being married to one person is not enough. “Extramarital affairs” is really illegal sex on the side.

When pastors and female parishioners commit adultery and or fornication, they risk being denied entrance into the kingdom. As Paul said by the Spirit of God, “fornicators” have no inheritance in the kingdom of God.

They must repent of sin. It is evident that the kind of whoremonger is that of the world, however, what about those that practice fornication as a believer?

Were they a believer in the first place? Were they genuinely saved?

As Paul said in 2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? — unless indeed you are disqualified.”

Here’s how you examine yourselves.

Paul said in Ephesians 4:17-24 “This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.”

If you are walking like the world, your salvation is suspect. If you are giving yourselves over to lewdness, your salvation is suspect.

If you are coming to church looking to “score,” your salvation is suspect.

Level one sexual addiction is porn, masturbation, adultery, fornication, prostitution.

It takes obedience, faith to implement or apply the Word of God, and courage to abstain from sexual immorality.

Sack time with Sister Suzy-Q is the staircase to hell. Sack time with a preacher is not worth going to hell over.

That’s what people do not think would happen. That when a person commits sexual sins, they are still going to heaven.

Read carefully 1 John 2:15-17. And read Ephesians 5:3-7.

Matthew 7:21-23, Revelation 21:8, and Hebrews 13:4, while you are at it.

Hell is full of people that never repented of sexual immorality. They never judged themselves.

If you are a pulpit whoremonger or a parishioner whore, the Lord offers forgiveness when you repent.

There is no need to turn the house of prayer into a gentlemen’s club.

Black Sexual Immorality. Are Blacks Out Of Control When It Comes To Sex?

In reading about the Middle Passage, it came across my mind that our ancestors endured harsh and cruel treatment. They were taken from the land of Africa to sail thousands of miles to distant countries for the slave trade.

This is very cold and cruel.

Many of them did not make it.

According to one source, between 1500 and 1900, an estimated 4 million Africans were killed.

Perhaps more were killed avoiding capture. The estimated 4 million were killed either by disease, attempted escape, or they simply jumped overboard when they had the chance.

This was also called according to Kiswahili MAAFA.” It’s meaning is “terrible occurrence” or “great disaster.”

In 400 years, 4 million or more were wiped off the face of the earth.

Fast forward to today.

The abortion industry has wreaked havoc on Blacks BUT it’s really Blacks doing it to ourselves and the industry is just available to accommodating our stupidity.

Additionally, we Blacks vote loyally to keep the killing machine oiled and greased with the blood of our babies.

Since 1973, 15 million Black babies were killed.

So, in 41 years (1973-2014), Blacks have managed to kill more babies than those that were killed during the Middle Passage in 400 years.

Some have said that this is the curse of Canaan that Noah imposed and that’s not true. That’s because the curse was fulfilled thousands of years before the Middle Passage. And the Canaanites were in the land that is now Israel. So why have we been oppressed for so long. Why are we oppressing ourselves? Why haven’t we awaken to this generational nightmare?

The reason is simple.

Sin.

“In whom the God of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not…”

It appears that we have been singled out almost worse, if not worse than the Jews.

Out of all the races of the earth, Blacks have suffered. However, for some reason, we are some of the most spiritual group of people on earth. But one thing is certain. You can be spiritual but still lost in sin. Attending church is a spiritual act but anyone could act spiritual and never know the Lord.

Sexual immorality plagues every race but when it comes to abortion, the numbers reveal that just because we are spiritual, without a real encounter with God, “we have neither seen Him nor known Him” (see 1 John 3:6). 

Because if we were really born again, and if we really claim to worship Him because we say that we know Him, we would never sin against Him. The time for excuses ceases when we realize that sexual immorality is a sin against God and His Word.

For years, we have been making inept and lame excuses.

Some of you will recall the late Tonya Reaves. 

She was killed at the age of 24 while having an abortion. The death was ruled “an accident,” but we all know that two deaths took place. 

An unintentional death and a deliberate death.

The parents of Tonya would like for this not to be politicized however, there is nothing that will stop this.

But what about the spiritual side?

What are the morals in this lesson?

There was outrage that Planned Parenthood was responsible for this tragic death. However, we should be just as outraged that she wasn’t married, had fornicated, and deliberately chose to have an abortion. As we were there in Washington, DC for a press conference, none of us pastors addressed fornication and adultery as the root cause of all abortions.

I guess all of us were more concerned about our time in the camera, sounding eloquent, but did we strike the right cord about the real issues of Black sexual immorality?

Yes, this is a “shoulda, woulda, coulda moment.”

We place the emphasis on the botched abortion procedure and lateness of responding to an emergency situation.

What are we left with?

A dead young girl, engaged to be married with a then, 1 year old child.

Here is another travesty.

Did Tonya Reaves know the Lord?

Two sins are before her before you say “Yes, she knew the Lord.”

Fornication is a sin. Murder is a sin.

Read what John, the beloved apostle said in 1 John 1:5-10. “This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.

But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.”

Just because she died because of a botched procedure, it doesn’t mean that they are in heaven.

Could she have asked the Lord to forgive her for the fornication? It’s possible.

Could she have asked the Lord to forgive her for killing her child?

Why ask God to forgive you before you kill a child? Do you think that God is that dumb that He would say, “Yes, I forgive you,” before you kill a child? Do you think that God is that dumb to forgive you before you fornicate?

That’s the kind of false god that is erected in the minds of people. People want the kind of god that allows them to sin and get away with it, ask this god to forgive before they commit sin.

As one article put it, they are sexually immoral atheists. They want God only when it suits them.

“God, I am going to have fornication. You and I are good with that. Right? Right? See you in church on Sunday God.”

“Do not be deceived. God is not mocked. Whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7.

The Bible is clear about fornication.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 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. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”

How does one become washed, sanctified, and justified?

They must repent of sin and never sin again, and be born again.

According to Hebrews 13:4, God judges adulterers and fornicators. So if you are saying that I am judging, read Hebrews 13:4 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11. Your emotions are high right about now, but search your Bible to refute this. If you can find one Scripture that declares that God will forgive you before you commit the sin, then post it.

Ezekiel 18:4 says  ““Behold, all souls are Mine; The soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine; The soul who sins shall die.”

Ezekiel 18:24-26 says “But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live?

All the righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; because of the unfaithfulness of which he is guilty and the sin which he has committed, because of them he shall die.

“Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’

Hear now, O house of Israel, is it not My way which is fair, and your ways which are not fair?

When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and dies in it, it is because of the iniquity which he has done that he dies.”

You see, God cannot turn His back on justice, holiness, and righteousness. To do so would necessitate the death of God. And God will not sin. It is man that has sinned and so God will walk in justice against all evil.

Do you see where this is going.

In the normal course of life, we would like to have seen this young lady get married to the right man that knows the Lord. They get married and start a family. Not have fornication and choose to murder a child to cover sin.

Truth hurts but perhaps we could learn something from this tragedy.

God’s way is the best way. Man’s thoughts and ways are lower than God’s thoughts and ways.

Black sexual immorality is the reason behind the deadly institution of abortion. They are counting on our ignorance and stupidity to commit sexual immorality and then impose the final solution because like in the jungle, we are no different than wild animals that cannot control themselves. The institution of abortion knows that we aren’t smart enough to stop this Maafa against the whole world.

If we were smart enough, Planned Parenthood would be without a job. 

 

Tyler Perry – Alias Madea – & Fornication – Child Out Of Wedlock

It’s amazing when you watch a well known celebrity lay hands on Bishop TD Jakes, and the Christian world declares that Tyler Perry can preach and he is anointed by God. Tyler Perry is a real man of God. He speaks about “our” issues and he’s real. He talks about what really goes on in church. Y’all better stop talking about Tyler Perry cause he’s for real.

Then, all of a sudden, what does happen in church, happens to him.

When you have someone that went through some stuff, pull up his boot straps, and make it, he could do no wrong.

We don’t mind these kinds of stories because it gives the rest of us hope that we can make it.

BUT.

When you wear women’s clothing that is against the Scriptures (Deuteronomy 22:5), make movies that mock the true church of God, interweaving fact with fiction and call it real, and then lay hands on a Bishop, preach with no call of God on his life, and then celebrate a child out of wedlock, does these sins exemplify true Christian living that glorifies God?

Do not deceive yourselves.

Just because people fail the standard (Bible), it doesn’t mean that the standard (Bible) failed.

God’s grace is not just about cutting man some slack. It’s about bringing man’s sins to bear on his life, to cause man to recognize the goodness of the Lord, and to get it right. Grace gives man a chance to get it straight with God. Favor demands you get it straight before it is too late.

Romans 6:1 says, “Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we that are dead to sin live any longer in it (sin)?”

Haters of the Scriptures will never rightly divide the Word of truth on this issue.

It is no wonder that the Lord told me and others that this generation of believers is some of the worst ever on this planet.

This generation of believers live by Isaiah 5:20.

Folks, Jesus said you shall know them by their fruits.

In Matthew 7:15-20, the Lord Jesus said “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.”

A lot of carnal believing people will defend Scripturally indefensible positions. The “Judge not” crowd already came to his defense.

When it comes to sin, there is only two sides of the fence. You can’t stand on both sides, otherwise, you are an enemy of God according to James 4:4. You can’t be a friend of the devil and a friend of God at the same time. Love one and hate the other. “You cannot serve two masters,” said Jesus.

Paul said this in Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?”

There will be misguided immature people that will judge the Word of God that we share and call us Pharisees, holier than thous, talking about God’s anointed, putting your mouth on people and prophets.

Folks have a bad habit of distorting the truth so that their sins would not be exposed and brought to the light.

Jesus said this in John 3:18-21 “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.”

Fornication is not a work that is done in God. Righteousness is a work done in God.

One person posted on FB that “At least he didn’t have the child aborted. They should get married”

Sometimes, when people make these kinds of ill-advised ill-conceived statements, this is a deliberately conspired, vain attempt to cover the sin of fornication. Marriage and abortion after the child is conceived is the world’s way to cover their sin of fornication or adultery.

Sadly, over the years, professed believers have increasingly incorporated this act to cover sin.

God doesn’t appreciate that you are sewing fig leaves to cover your nakedness.

In fact, Yolanda Adams (Adams is not the woman that got pregnant) celebrated the coming of their bundle of joy.

I thought that sin was sin and sin is never to be celebrated. God never celebrated sin. The Lord God judged sin in the flesh of Jesus. Meaning that the Lord God sent His only Son to die for the sins of the world. The Lord Jesus didn’t die for our sins so that we could commit more sin.

God kicked sin out of heaven and sin will never return into the domain of God forever.

The Lord Jesus prayed the Lord’s Prayer and part of that prayer was, Forgive us our debts or trespasses.” He also prayed “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” 

Sin is not the will of God in heaven. It is the will of the devil on earth in unregenerate man and carnal believers that have yet to learn how to walk in total obedience to the Scriptures.

What we have seen in the Potters House with Tyler Perry and TD Jakes having hands laid on him is consistent throughout much of the Body of Christ. We excuse people from walking in genuine Christian maturity, and exchange it for performance and showmanship. In front of a crowd, we love to see people go ooh and ah when we say and do spiritually spooky things.

HYPOCRITES.

And some preachers Jesus would call, hypocrites, brood of vipers, and snakes.

When the show is over, reality continues.

No change when they come through the doors and no change when they walk out the doors.

Why?

Because leaders do not change.

The Lord Jesus died for our sins to free us from sin. While we are not perfect, and we never will be, we are expected to repent, ask God to forgive us our sins, and never sin again by walking in obedience to the Scriptures. 

SO, this is not gossip.

Let’s define gossip.

Gossip is a “casual or unconstrained conversation or reports about other people, typically involving details that are not confirmed as being true:” 

Since Tyler Perry announced that he fornicated and a child is produced out of wedlock, this is not gossip. The woman he fornicated with is not off the hook. She is guilty of sin just as Tyler Perry is guilty.

Since he has a following, many people will sadly follow suit and do the same. The spirit of fornication and adultery is heavy in the house of worship. Some pastors are not taking a stand by calling this a sin, but they are also celebrating the birth of a child. There is nothing against the child. I was born out of wedlock. The child is here and there is nothing that we can do about it, except call it what it is.

A child that is not born with the parents being a husband and wife before conception.

The Bible calls it “FORNICATION and ILLEGITIMATE.”

Illegitimate meaning that the conception happened outside of wedlock. The child is a legitimate child, no doubt.

He didn’t announce the fornication, just that he impregnated a woman that he is not married to.

The celebration begins.

This is true facts, not rumors.

Therefore, this is exposure.

Scriptures come to mind when you deal with fornicators.

Ephesians 5:11-13 “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.”

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 “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.”

Hebrews 13:4 “Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”

Now there is a way for Tyler Perry and all other fornicators to get out of this. The only way out of this is to repent. 

Repent means to change your mind or reconsider your ways.

Isaiah 55:6-7 says, “Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.”

So, let’s command them to repent and pray that they ask God to forgive them.

Forgiveness is only offered after a person repents of sin. The pattern is clear as to how God forgives sin.

Luke 17:1-4 is that pattern.

 

Dark In Canada

We’ve known for quite some time that Canada is getting darker by the moment.

In June, Canada hosted it’s “World Pride” event honoring a week long celebration of LGBT lewdness and lust.

A week long worldly party of lust and perversion but besides the point, Canada is a dark place.

After watching street preachers in Canada getting arrested, tried, and convicted for “hate speech” against the sin of homosexuality, it is only to happen soon in the United States.

In America, we’d better take advantage of the First Amendment before it comes to a close.

There are some in America that is intolerant of street preachers that preach against all sin and offer righteousness through the sacrifice of Jesus.

Those that insist on defying God and His Word, and are trapped in sin want the peace and quiet of living in sin undisturbed. However, the Lord Jesus said to “Preach!”

You can’t preach in silence. You cannot herald the gospel with closed lips.

We have to say something.

Paul said that the “wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all unrighteousness…”

As the righteousness of God is upon us, and as ambassadors of Christ, just like God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, the Lord is in us as well. We have the word of reconciliation and we have been given the ministry of reconciliation.

We have the same orders to “command men every where to repent.”

This message hasn’t changed and those that dare preach it will be persecuted, arrested, convicted, beheaded, and killed.

The physical pain cannot be compared to the eternal pain that awaits all who reject the gospel.

Jesus said in Matthew 10:27-28

Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

John the Baptist was arrested because he confronted the sin of adultery in Herod. Herod took Phillip’s wife, Herodias.

For preaching against their overt sexual sin, after the daughter of Herod provocatively danced, Herod decided to give his daughter anything and promised it with an oath that cannot be reversed. The daughter went and asked her mother what to receive.

The mother demanded John’s head on a platter.

This is the precedent of the world.

Preach against sin and you will pay.

But if we deny Jesus, we will be denied in heaven before the Father.

It is much better to be persecuted on earth than to be denied before the Father.

We endure afflictions and hardships because the wrath of God is minuscule compared to the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, where the smoke of their torment rises forever.

So, preachers. Real preachers. Real believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, enjoy free speech because the day is coming in America where the doors of this nation will shut out the light of the gospel and those that dare preach will certainly be persecuted.

Sex- The Wrong Reason To Attend Church

You were in an awesome moment with God in praise and worship. And then, as the Word is about to be preached, from the back, a young lady comes walking in. Your attention immediately changes from hearing from God, to hearing the urges and impulses in your flesh.

For women, you just can’t get your eyes off of the man of God. You can’t wait until the service ends to be charmed by a married pastor. After all, you honestly believe that he is all that. And you believe that he will give you much attention with what you are wearing.

Men and women attend church for the right reasons.

To worship God. To hear the Word of God. To grow in their relationship with God. To fellowship with the people of God.

But it has now become a common ground for sexual hook ups.

As one pastor puts it, if you are going to meet a mate, what better place to meet a man or a woman besides the club?

However, what has happened is that people just meet for the sex without the marriage. The benefits and privileges of marriage without the “till death do us part.”

To avoid the marriage part, MSM is prevalent due to the lusts of the flesh. Leaving the “natural use of the woman” is becoming more common. With the women, it’s the same. Entertaining the thoughts of a sexual escapade with the same sex as far as women are concerned, is now more common than ever.

The woman at Jacob’s well is a classic example of the search for water inside a thirsty soul.

Jesus addresses the problem by zeroing in on one common factor among all who are self imprisoned in Secret and Overt Sexual Sins.

Lust.

In every person is the urges and impulses that are enlivened when a man or a woman is tempted sexually.

The woman at the well is no different than every other person (John chapter 4).

This woman had five husbands and she gave up marriage altogether to commit adultery with the person she was with (number 6). Evidently, she was dissatisfied with number six and quite possibly was on the hunt for number 7.

The water conversation could have been taken by the woman at the well as a sexual conversation but it sure didn’t end that way.

The Lord Jesus quickly maintained His sexual discipline and stayed on point with the Scriptures. The Lord knew that she was searching for something and had the answer to her longest needs. The need to worship God in spirit and in truth. The need to drink from eternal waters. The need to leave behind her “water pot” that she used to pull up water that she would thirst for again.

The “water pot” of sexual immorality, she didn’t need it any more because Jesus told her about herself and she finally broke free.

When you break free, there is no need for a “water ( sexual immorality) pot.”

I remember a story of a woman that was married and she just couldn’t stop having sex with other men. She convinced herself to believe that something was lacking in her marriage. She thought that by having sex with other men, she would be relationally satisfied. It didn’t work out as she planned. She ended up with Cervical Cancer. She finally got the help she needed and the Lord delivered her from the sexual addiction of multiple male sexual companionship.

Cervical Cancer is sexually acquired.

You increase the risk of acquiring this and other diseases with multiple sexual partners.

The well she was drinking from fooled her into thinking that she could be satisfied.

For men, porn operates the same way.

By looking lustfully at scores of women and masturbation as if they were there before you, is that seemingly endless cycle of being satisfied. It’s the carrot on the stick that no horse earns. Sexual satisfaction can never be achieved in the multiplicity of mates.

Sadly, women come to church with their water pot” in search for fulfillment. To have a man is not the pinnacle of the value of a woman. To have the Lord is more valuable because only the Lord can fully satisfy.

It is good that men and woman come to church to hear the Word of God but when there is an underlying motive, the mind will pursue that motive until something happens. They will hear everything but the Word of God. They will do everything to give the appearance that they are interested in the Word of God. But underneath is that one thing that keeps them in pursuit for sexual immorality.

The men are the same way.

In the house of worship, the men are just as hungry and thirsting for sex with another woman.

Years ago, I remember going to a Baptist church as junior deacons. After the service was over, I thought that we would sit around and talk about God, and the Bible. After the benediction, they abandoned me and another junior deacon. I searched around the church for them and they were no where to be found.

I found out later that they planned all along to “hook up” with the other young girls of that Baptist church we’ve visited.

To my knowledge, I do not know if they had fornicated in pre-marital sex. But one thing is certain. It is clear that “youthful lust” was probably in the hearts and mind, and flesh. I could be wrong but my best hunch was that this is what went down.

Today, countless women are waiting for a man to make a move to select them to get married. Then again, there are others that could care less about marriage and they desire to have sex and call it a day. Ultimately, it is the longing in their hearts for what only the Lord could give.

Only the Lord could give true satisfaction.

We do not have to follow the ways of the world to achieve satisfaction. When we do things the way God designed them, we can have it and not have to live in regret for the rest of our lives. The right reason for coming to church is to flow in the plans and purposes of God and let life happen.

The Lord will bring the right one along and when you do it right, for the right reasons, you will see that God was looking out for you all along.

Mastering The Urge Like Jesus, To Never Masturbate

Setting Captives Free by Mike Cleveland has a very intense and challenging course called “Way To Purity.”

I’ve taken and completed this course and received a certificate. I can say that this course challenged me in more ways than I could ever imagine. But it gave me the fortitude and determination to forever kill, deaden, and deprive of power the animal impulses that were lurking in my members. The porn part was killed in November 2008, but the masturbation lingered until 2009. Since that time, I’ve had some relapses until I needed to stop the hypocrisy and live a life the way Jesus did in His sexual discipline.

Since the last relapse early this year, 2014, I’ve been able to finally put to rest the urge to masturbate. Because Jesus did, I can because it is by His grace. I’ve learned to set a watch over my life the way that Jesus did and I catch every little move I make. The fastest way to lose the anointing over your life is when you do not catch yourself in an instant and remind yourself that you are a dead man. Dead men do not respond to sin. I am alive unto God and that’s the only way to live. Dead to sin, alive to God. Obeying His Word and denying the flesh any chance to run amuck.

Also I am back on the street preaching beat.  You can’t talk about deliverance, full and complete if you are a hypocrite in front of sinners. You can’t preach with unction if you commit sin like sinners. As Lenard Ravenhill once said, “A praying man will never sin, and a sinning man will never pray.”

Setting Captives Free deals with porn and masturbation in the lives of men.

The last time I checked the site, there were over 3 million hits.

But I’ve also noticed the amount of men and women that actually either started the course or have completed this 60 day course.

Yes.

Sixty Days.

The amount of men and women that started or completed the course was approximately 300,000 persons. 

Unless I am wrong, that’s 10 percent that dared to break free of porn and masturbation. The course is designed with an accountability partner that will not let you off the hook should you fail to maintain your pursuit to holiness and purity according to the Scriptures.

Not everyone will appreciate an accountability partner because depending on who you get, it will not be pleasant. I believe in accountability because when we attempt to do accountability on our own, we will do a “mulligan.” We will make up the rules and should we feel the need to cheat, we will do so unhesitatingly.

I do not believe that because of an accountability partner watching your answers at the end of each course, whether you’ve watched porn or masturbated in 24 hours is the reason why many would not do the course.

I believe that it may be part of the reason but it is not to be blamed. The accountability part is there as a very serious integrity factor because in the end, you have to answer to the Lord. You can lie about it but you will be guilty of two things.

1. Sexual immorality.

2. Lying.

Both of these are listed as persons who will be cast into the lake that burns with fire and brimstone forever according to Revelation 21:8.

Pornography, for most men is just fuel to the fire. So a man could masturbate without watching porn.

If you are really honest with yourself, you will note that masturbation is the most difficult part to break because solo sex is muscle memorized. The mind and body expect you to release sexual tension anytime. To have to answer the question about whether you’ve masturbated or not is a very embarrassing question because it shows that you are either in control or not.

One of the fruit of the Spirit is “self control.”

As a born again believer, you have within you the Spirit of God. Paul also calls this the Spirit of Christ. There is a reason. You have Jesus in you by the Spirit. The same self control that Jesus exhibited when He walked the earth is in you. This means that at anytime, you can obey the Word of God every time.

This doesn’t mean that you are perfect. This means that you can stop masturbating any time you want to.

When you are driving a car, and you approach an intersection. The light turned red. What do you do? You come to a stop.

At every intersection, the same thing happens. The urge to run that red light is tempered by the fact that you will hurt or kill yourself and others. That’s the top of your worries. The secondary worry is a ticket, a fine, or a suspension, or revocation of your driver’s license.

These things reinforces this one fact that it is in your best interest to stop.

When it comes to masturbation, we do not think about stopping.

We invent ways to get it done and we deceive our minds into thinking that the Lord would forgive us.

1 John 1:5-10 serves as a reminder that when we deceive ourselves, we are not fooling God. 1 John 3 declares to us that when it comes to sin, we either have the seed of God or we are of the offspring of the devil. We cannot practice sin or lawlessness and practice righteousness at the same time.

So mastering the urge to masturbate must be a way of life until death.

Jesus was a man subject to the same passions as we, yet, He didn’t sin (see Hebrews 4:14-16). Jesus sympathizes with our weakness and He identifies with them. What we need to do is identify with His obedience and His desire to please the Father at all times. Mastering masturbation begins by learning how Jesus obeyed the Father.

John 8:29 tells us that Jesus always did those things that please the Father. Jesus went to the place of prayer and He was found customarily in the temple or synagogue reading the Word or the law. As long as He found Himself doing these things, temptation would come, but He would master these temptations by obeying the Word.

Jesus learned obedience according to Hebrews 5:8 through the things He suffered.

Jesus said in Matthew 25:41 that the “spirit indeed is willing but the flesh is weak.”

In our weak moments, the grace of God is at its strongest. But we have to find grace.”

In other words, we have to exert the effort to get before God to prevent ourselves from falling into temptation. The urge to masturbate usually occurs in the morning or late at night. But anyone could masturbate at any time. The male system is designed to be sexual at any time. However, it is during these times that a man is aroused the most. His mind is not engaged at work and is at rest so when a thought or image of sex comes, it is very easy to engage the hand in sexual self foreplay.

It is in these moments I believe that Jesus was challenged the most. But the Lord had developed a way out every time. He got up to pray. He changed His venue. Many times I thought about the fact that the Lord Jesus got up to pray but my only reason was because He wanted to be more anointed to minister.

Luke 4:18 tells us that Jesus was anointed.

Not only did Jesus wanted to fellowship with the Father, He got up to pray before He fell into sin after temptation.

The Bible says that Jesus sympathizes with us and that we do not have a High Priest who cannot be touched with the feelings of our weaknesses. In other words, Jesus never would tell us to deal with it because He dealt with temptation Himself. Jesus knows what we go through so He can help us defeat the urge to masturbate provided we change our venue, get up and pray.

It is too late to pray for strength after sinning.

I used to think that if I just go through the process of masturbation without ejaculation that I didn’t masturbate.

That was a lie and I deceived myself. Any form of sexual self contact that arouses the flesh is a violation. To prevent myself from doing this, I had to change my venue like Jesus. Additionally, I had to tell myself that it is hypocritical. The hands had to stop traveling and the mind had to stop self deception. The urges are strong but they are never stronger than the grace of God given in times of weakness and weak moments.

Any laps of the mind and hands and you will find yourself where you shouldn’t be.

So learn to change your venue. Get up and pray. Get up and read the Word. Change what you are meditating on. Refuse to look for ways to get around the sin of masturbation. Learn to discipline yourself before you wreck yourself. The Holy Spirit will give you a way out to overcome temptation. He is the same Holy Spirit that worked with Jesus during His time of temptations according to 1 Corinthians 10:13.

You can master the urge to masturbate just like Jesus did.
