How To Stop Watching Pornography

image.png

As I was listening to a radio broadcast of a “Bible answer man,” no it’s not Hanegraaff, it was someone else. A listener called in to get answers about how to stop watching porn.

Watching porn is still a problem among believers today.

The majority of men that teach the Bible may not have gone through a personal situation where in their own lives, they’ve watched porn.

Not every man watches porn, but it’s sure close.

You could tell when a person watches porn, the Lord sets them free, and they humbly learn how to help other men get the freedom they cry for.

Then there’s the Bible teachers that never get enough information to help men get free. As I’ve said, not every man watches porn, but I am aware that not every Bible teacher knows how to minister grace and truth.

It’s very easy to give off the cuff answers when you haven’t gone through the process. This isn’t to say that this Bible answer man on Talk Radio on Sirius Radio, never went through an encounter of porn.

The other danger is that there’s plenty of Bible answer teachers and preachers that develop an arrogant, prideful, and haughty spirit.

I know.

I was one of them.

Just a few weeks after being delivered from porn, an “I’ll teach them” spirit came and then my accountability partner from “Setting Captives Free” gave me a very humiliating lesson.

He said to me, in words like………“Don’t teach me Bible knowledge.”

You see, it’s very easy to come off like you know all the Bible answers. And sometimes, we truly think we do. And come to find out that what’s in our head never matches what’s in our hearts.

Over the course of time, I began to see that we try to think we could help people and find that we’re inadequate, ill-equipped, unteachable, and at times, very nasty and angry.

This Bible teacher didn’t come off like this at all.

In fact, he was very kind, very careful with his words, very humble. He wasn’t prideful, arrogant, or nasty. He was very good in sharing with that man the forgiveness of sins.

He is to be commended for calmly talking about the aspect of forgiveness.

It’s very difficult to minister to men trapped in porn so what we need to do is gather as much information as we can about porn, but also arm ourselves with Scripture. Then we need to learn from those that were trapped in porn that broke free. We also need to learn from those that were never trapped in porn and how they worked with the Lord to stay free.

Too often, we just get a one sided view of dealing with pornography. What I mean is that only those that’s been in porn know how to deal with it, and nothing could be further from the truth.

Just as the Lord told Elijah, “there’s 7000 that never bowed their knee to Baal.”

It’s very difficult to admit that you have a porn problem.

90% plus of men will never admit they have a sins of the flesh problem.

And roughly 10% either initiated or completely fulfilled their desire to be free and even less than that remain free to this day.

You may ask, “Where did I get this figure from?”

A couple of years ago, I looked on “Setting Captives Free” to see how many people, male and female, attempted to deal with porn addiction. At that time, around 2011 or so, over 2 million clicked the sight but only 200,000 attempted to go through and complete the course.

I am an alumnus.

As with any addiction, sexual addiction in particular, it’s a very dirty, filthy habit. It destroys the morals of man, chokes off his relationship with God, and if he’s married, with his wife, cuts off his ministry, takes all his money and his time.

His life evolves around porn. If he’s not in his house watching porn, there’s plenty of substitute porn in the streets with scantily clad women in stores, restaurants, malls, church, work, and other places.

His mind is consumed with watching flesh.

And even if women are dressed modestly, he knows how to use his imagination to sexually objectify her.

The core of all porn is the lust in the heart of man.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust thereof, but he that does the will of God abides forever.”

James 1:14-15 (NKJV) “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.”

The desires within a man is what drives him to make provision to fulfill these lusts lurking within his mind and flesh.

Romans 13:14 (NKJV) “But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”

As long as man never addresses the lust in his heart, it’s very difficult to fight the urges and impulses lurking in his flesh.

Granted, some women do not make it easy but they’re not the core of the problem.

How does a man get free of porn?

Sadly, the images are filed in the mind of a man. From time to time, if we don’t “bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ,” these thought or fantasies easily emerge. If we dwell on the thought instead of subdue these thoughts, sexual arousal will take place.

If we’re in the privacy of home, the job, in the car, it’s very easy to go from thoughts to actually stimulating ourselves. That is, to manipulate our sexual organs.

Sexual tension is on an avoidable collision course to be released.

The rest is history.

We go to John 5 with the man at the pool of Bethesda.

Jesus approached a man that was lame in his feet for 38 years, and asked him a very simple question. “Do you want to be made whole.”

To be whole means to be sound or to be restored to health.

While this is about the lame man’s physical condition, the same question could be asked about sexual addicts.

Those that are trapped in the clutches of porn.

Do you want to be sound? Restored to health?

Many men willingly acknowledge that porn is an issue but this question demands that you look at the condition, but few look beyond the condition to see that this will be a life long battle to maintain health after being made whole.

And if we were really honest, we will also admit that masturbation is inextricably connected to porn.

Men do not sit there, watch porn, and then shut off the show of flesh.

Men engage in make believe sex to satisfy the lust in his heart for that flesh.

It’s the one thing that keeps a man coming back for more porn.

And this is the core reason why many men, well over 90%, never be free.

The self satisfaction is of too greater value to walk away.

Romans 6:12-14 (NKJV Strong’s) “Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”

If you’re not prepared to cut off, in a radical way, the “ritual” of making provision “to fulfill the lusts of the flesh,” this is what brings men into a place of self imposed hopelessness and helplessness.

They abandon themselves to live a life of sexual sins that usually takes them further than where they’ve intended to go.

Sexual predators, serial rapists, child molesters.

Finally, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”

As long as men aren’t afraid of God and His commandments, sin is easy.

God gave Cain the answer he needed to conquer sin in his life….

Genesis 4:7 (NKJV Strong’s) “If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”

You can rule lust in your heart.

But you can’t do it alone.

You need the help of the Holy Spirit.

Lust Is More Powerful Than Pornography

image.png

Lust is more powerful than pornography?

Prove it.

James 1:14-16 (NKJV Strong’s) “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.”

Pornography is an accelerant. It’s just a tool to tempt you to fulfill the lust in your mind and flesh.

Romans 13:13-14 (NKJV Strong’s) “Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”

Ephesians 2:1-3 (NKJV Strong’s) “And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.”

Lust originates in the mind and fulfilled in the flesh.

Matthew 15:18-19 (NKJV Strong’s) “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.”

Making provision is no different than Dr. Carnes’ addiction cycle.

1. Thoughts/fantasy.
2. Ritual.
3. Acting out.
4. Remorse.


It’s in the heart and mind of man where arousal begins.

Mental sexual arousal then searches out.

Whether it would be walking in the grocery store, movies, TV shows, the Internet, Walmart, Shopping Malls, beaches, the subway, riding around in your car, in church services, and other places.

Anything that looks beautiful to a lust hearted man, or any man that turns their head to look at you.

The venue doesn’t matter.

It’s the heart of men and women where the search for sexual fulfillment begins.

Pornography is an accelerant.

It’s the place where, in secret, and all alone, a male or a female uses sex tools or other fetishes to sexually satisfy themselves in masturbation.

The screen where the images become a tool to reach orgasm is idolatry.

These victims are Secret Sexual Sins victims.

Used over and over again in a vain attempt to feel loved, or sexually fulfilled or both.

Last count, there’s well over 289 million Internet porn sites, and growing.

Our iPhones and other devices is the place where men and women view porn or hook up for a sexual encounter. Texting locations such as homes, hotels, motels, and other places to rendezvous for sexual immorality.

Then there’s the criminal element in prostitution/human trafficking for the sex trade. There’s been an unending quest to engage in sexual immorality.

Professed believers are caught in the middle.

Some have given in to this world to attempt to feel sexually satisfied or loved.

There’s no satisfaction in sin.

But the rewards are never received.

Sin never rewards.

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

When self sex (masturbation) is fulfilled, the conviction of sin hits the heart.

Arriving back at the bottom of the sexual addiction cycle, remorse, not repentance, sets in.

After recovering from the conviction of sin through remorse, the mind and body experiences a reset. The sexual urges and impulses return. The cycle starts all over again. We’ve learned how to suppress the conviction. We’ve learned how to overcome the voice of the Holy Spirit to seek the Lord in the time of temptation.

But people and even professed believers don’t care.

We walk into Walmart, the Mall, the movie place, and the look of and for lust returns. Or the wardrobe to turn heads is put on.

We rush right by the Holy Spirit to chase after a fantasy that will never be fulfilled. We go back to that image or that feeling of feeling loved, and start the process all over again.

All the while, we deliberately suppress the Word that the Holy Spirit speaks to our hearts and minds.

“Come to Me all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me. For I am meek and lowly in heart. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”

There’s only one purpose of pornography.

To engage in Secret Sex with that person or persons (whether homosexual, bisexual, or monogamous sex) on the screen in the fulfillment of self pleasure (masturbation), without dealing with the person in a relationship in marriage.

All in a pursuit to fulfill lust or to be loved, or both.

But what is it that males and females are really after?

John 4:1-42, in particular, verse 24, gives us all the answer.

The Allurement Of A Cover & Its Relation To Pornography

image.png

The saying goes,

Never judge a book by its cover.”

The flirty dirty cover.

But when it comes to porn and lusting after the flesh, the only concern is the cover.

The cover is what attracts the eyes.

It’s the deception that within the beauty of a body, there’s nothing wrong.

The beauty is PERFECT!!!

That’s the world of porn.

But it’s may also be true for marriage.

Men get attracted to a beautiful woman. They both play nice to a degree, and as soon as the marriage ceremony seals the deal, the book is open and the real story is read.

Porn operates the same way.

The cover lured you and you become a part of her book.

The bad part.

Granted. Not all books are bad.

Both the man and the woman did their due diligence in opening up the book to read what’s in it. Granted, the book of people’s lives is on going. We may never read it all. Sometimes, life does happen, but if you could get to the intent of the book as much as you can, the bad things that can and will happen could be mitigated.

But every now and then, the cover obscures the trap.

They don’t call it the Venus fly trap for nothing.

In marriage, after consummation, the story comes out.

All the things you thought you knew begin to unfold.

The wedding wasn’t the issue. You may have had a little spat, or many spats, but you were able to suppress it and compromise. But sometimes, people do go overboard. It gets ugly. In some cases, so ugly that you call off the wedding.

You’ve tried desperately to compromise but the anger and fierceness of the moment or moments was just too much to bear.

What does this have to do with porn?

A lot.

Men are driven into the bosom of another woman over such things.

Men rarely investigate past the cover. Men rarely see something and say something about it. But on the other hand, some do. They see tendencies, habits, and other issues that could make or break a relationship.

The one thing that chase some men away from some women is the controlling and manipulation.

Don’t think for one moment that men don’t control or manipulate.

In some cases, men may be worse than women.

Each one want something and in order to get it, they will use control and manipulation to get it.

In a pre wedding situation, certain tests should take place.

Boundaries, territories, pro’s, con’s, likes, dislikes, attitudes, mind sets, religious beliefs, foods, drinks, child raising, living habits, hygiene, education, jobs, finances, attire, recreational habits, and other areas.

They all get tested.

The key is time.

Few people are willing to take their time and examine carefully a person.

Some go as far as private investigations, background checks, family visitations, friend visitation, employment visitations, etc.

You want to know what you’re getting into.

But the cover masks all these areas until the test comes.

The sex (whether moral or immoral) is what you wanted and got but you didn’t count on the story. The drama. The hidden agenda. The controlling. The manipulating. The anger. The frustration. The constant bickering. The boisterous mouth. The lying. The cheating. The put downs. The smile as the blade pierces your back.

The one place where men are driven to when they’re hurt is porn and masturbation. Pretending to have sex with that woman on the screen.

Deeply fantasizing having sex and not dealing with the relationship.

But even if there’s no drama, over time, the cover loses its attractiveness.

When a couple get passed a certain safe zone, their physical attraction is less important. After the wedding ceremony, you got what you wanted. For the man, sex. For the woman, marriage. Then there’s no need to “upkeep” especially after having children.

For the most part, the cover lost it’s beauty, and for the male, he loses his strength. But he never lost the ability to look and be stimulated sexually.

But over time, eventually, his ability to perform in the bedroom slows down.

As you age, you adjust.

It’s called settling down.

However, the gym can do wonders for both the male and female.

Maintaining the cover is a life long pursuit.

This one act of maintaining the cover of the book could save many marriages.

Vitality will be lost one day, but you could slow down its affect.

The winds of destroying marriages are around.

Many believe that when you age in marriage, it doesn’t matter about the cover.

You have a right to that thought, but just imagine if you did your part to maintain the cover for as long as you could?

It may save the marriage relationship.

So, the cover to attract is there as well as what’s in the book.

Giving In To Lust Is Easier Than To Flee

Unknown-3.jpeg

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

Paul tells us to “Flee also youthful lust.”

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

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

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

It happens all the time.

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

The combination of the two takes place.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We must understand that lust must be kept crucified.

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

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

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

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

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

We ignore the dangers of judgment.

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

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

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

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

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

Fighting lust is very tough.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You never counsel them alone.

Let them walk away frustrated.

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

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

This young pastor made a reversible choice.

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

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

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

XXXChurch. When Dope Smokes You

image.png

Years ago, when the Lord delivered me from pornography, I came across many sites to help me understand my former addiction.

I came across a different article called The Seamless Fabric, parts of which could be read here

Somewhere in my blog, the full article is available.

Drugs is connected to sexual immorality.

In many of my blogs, I’ve shared how porn stars/prostitutes would use drugs and alcohol to help them cope with the on-going sex acts, or the next shooting scene.

The women would be raped or knew that they would be severely sexually abused and they needed to place their mind in “suspended animation” to get through the utter humiliation.

Craig Gross, according to this article reported in the Christian Post, demonstrated that other forms of addiction and justifying it with the use of medical marijuana, is cool.

Cigarette smoking is the gateway to the drug culture. We all know this.

But what’s disappointing is when we offer deliverance from pornography and support the use of drugs, seamlessly connected to porn, to be a part of a person’s worship, it’s sad.

XXXChurch does fall under the guise of Catholicism.

That’s one thing I’ve noticed.

It’s clear that when there’s a clear confusion and massive conflict of theology, sooner or later, the underlying things come to the surface.

My point is not to blast Craig Gross, but to help expose underlying issues.

Complete deliverance is what we need.

Not excuses and extra Biblical justification that clearly conflicts with the harmony of Scripture.

Such as…………God made weed so since He made weed, we can smoke it.

God may have put the plant in the earth, but man, in his fallen condition, extract it from the ground to abuse (abnormally use) the element.

God didn’t roll the joint and handed it to you.

Just because marijuana, heroin, meth, cocaine, and other drugs are found in the earth, these elements, when used improperly, in the hands of mixed up, sinful man, is deadly, addictive, and dangerous.

Chemical dependence is just another chain to keep man bound.

To worship the Lord declares that you’re no longer dependent upon yourself to make you happy. To worship the Lord means that you’re a “living sacrifice.”

Like Paul said, “I die daily.”

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

IF you can’t sacrifice marijuana or any addiction, it will inevitably sacrifice you.

Your body is offered as a living sacrifice that you may “…prove what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God.”

John 4:24 means what it says.

John 4:24 (NKJV Strong’s) “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

We don’t use natural means (dope) to enhance communing with the Lord.

Some will argue that we use musical instruments.

Can an instrument, by itself, enhance worship?

No.

It takes a person, skilled in music, to be used by the Holy Spirit, to play or sing skillfully.

It’s called Divine Inspiration.

Therefore, the HOLY Spirit will not inspire a person to use a substance, known to impair a person’s judgment, to enhance a person’s worship of the Lord.

Such inspiration is DEMONIC INSPIRATION.

God doesn’t authorize the use of drugs to worship Him.

He uses us as He pleases without controlled substances.

In the book of 1st Samuel, we see the sons of Aaron misuse the Altar of Incense.

We don’t speculate what they’ve done.

However, we see that any misuse of the OT temple artifacts can be costly.

Nadab and Abihu decided to abuse the temple and it cost them their lives.

We are in the NT and we are the temple of the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 3:17 still stands.

The absurdity of smoking dope to enhance a person’s worship of God is an open invitation to keep many seeking deliverance from porn to remain trapped in marijuana, or other forms of drugs and alcohol.

I Want Jesus & I Want Sexual Sin

audience-blur-church-976866

Make no mistake about it. If you ask most professed Christians whether they want sin and Jesus at the same time, the answer would shock many of us.

But it shouldn’t because all we need to do is check the way we’re living.

We want sexual sins and we want righteousness.

We want homosexuality and we want God to accept our choice to keep sin.

We want adultery and we want to keep Jesus.

We want fornication and we want to keep Jesus.

We want bisexuality and we want to keep Jesus.

We want sex with animals and we want Jesus.

We want porn and masturbation and we want Jesus.

We pretend that we could be saved from sin but our actions show that some of us aren’t as saved as we claim to be.

Christian music or a “worship” experience can have a “positive” affect but when temptation comes, that “religious” feeling goes away and we find ourselves yielding to sin without putting up a fight to stop ourselves.

The very thing we’ve “repented” of invites us to be controlled by it.

The Lord confronted me and said “You’ve never repented.” “You don’t repent and then change your mind about repentance.”

Repent means to change your mind.

You don’t change your mind and then change your mind back.

The devil never hits you and I with truth. God hits you and I with truth and awaits our response. satan keeps the lies going and when we want to give ourselves an excuse to violate God’s Word and be lawless, we close our eyes, become blind and deaf, ignore or deliberately suppress the truth, and yield to sexual sins.

Paul mentioned that apostasy would take place in the last days, and then the “Day” of the Lord would come (see 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3.

It’s a deliberate renunciation of the Lordship of Jesus and the sovereignty of His Word, and completely surrender to the sin that easily beset us.

Some of us have gotten to the place where we’ve declared ourselves hopeless, and completely allow ourselves to come under the power of sin. We deceive ourselves, we’ve convinced ourselves that we’re no longer redeemable, condemning ourselves to the prison house of bondage to sin.

We give ourselves over to our urges and impulses with lascivious (absence of restraint and discipline) living.

We beat ourselves and then we reward ourselves with the pleasures of sin.

In every denomination, people are abandoning the true teaching of the Lord because of a thirst for sin. The believers watch too much of the world, allow the seed of the world to enter their hearts, and allow their sinful reasoning to overwhelm them.

When we watch too much of the world, it’s a matter of time before we become so consumed in our minds with the affairs of this life.

People are walking away from Jesus.

We’re not talking about people outside the assembly of the righteous.

We’re talking about people that were once overwhelmed with the love of the Lord. Overwhelmed with Jesus in their lives. Overwhelmed with living for God. Slowly, they drift away. Sometimes family and friends are used by the enemy to slowly suggest alternatives to the Word. To get them to “excuse” their sin.

Little by little, we find ourselves agreeing with what they do against the Lord, and we find ourselves compromising, capitulating, and surrendering to the madness within their fallen minds.

And that’s what satan was waiting for.

We give in because we either don’t want to fight, or we grow weary of fighting our mind and flesh.

This is what we’re seeing in many denominations and non denominations.

We quickly give in to our urges and desires to satisfy the flesh.

Not realizing that many people within and without the assemblies of the righteous, are flowing in that direction of apostasy.

There’s a difference between struggling with sin and calling it quits with the Lord, however, when we habitually fall into sin, it’s just a matter of time before we find ourselves on the brink of making a decision to walk away from the Lord for good.

Hebrews 6:4-6 (NKJV Strong’s) “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.”

These are consistent end time signs.

People are permanently walking away from the Lord.

It’s been reported that 20% of people in the last 2 decades have ceased coming to a local assembly. To put it in perspective, just because a person goes to a local assembly, it doesn’t mean that they know the Lord.

So going to a local assembly is a poor indicator of kingdom growth.

In that same statistic, more people in the Catholic religion leave their Catholic assemblies than people that attend true protestant assemblies.

But again, we should take this with a grain of salt because we don’t know where people stand in the Lord, whether saved or unsaved.

Those that commit apostasy will never be allowed to come back according to Hebrews 6:4-6.

Salvation was never meant to be a revolving door.

You can’t play for two teams. You can’t deal for satan and deal for God.

Pick which way you want to go.

We need to make up our minds to never put our hand to the plow and look back.

We need to not look back as Lot’s wife, and turn into a pillar of salt.

STD’s On The Rise/Flesh Eating Diseases

It’s been a long while since the last blog but it’s good to take a break and then resume as needed.

No, I never relapsed into porn. So now that’s kicked to the curb, we see that a lot has transpired in a while.

According to Fox News, by way of the CDC, STD’s in America and perhaps it could be said, around the world are on the increase.

The preaching of “safe sex” isn’t working because when you’re in the heat of passion, to stop to put a rubber on destroys the moment.

As far as Christians that are married, conception is expected.

But for the world, we know that it’s a set up.

In one of my past blogs, with first hand information, we know that the condom manufacturer is in bed with the abortion industry to ensure condom failure to increase the chance of a pregnancy, thus, increase the chance to perform an abortion to harvest body parts for money.

According to a Medical Research group that used hidden recording to discover this horrendous practice, we now see that sadly, nothing goes to waste…….except the life of that child, brutally murdered in the womb.

On another front, STD’s is also a lucrative business for the medical field.

In another one of my past blogs, we’ve discovered that in Puerto Rico, a strain of STD’s mutates to defeat the medicine.

Hence, the purpose of this blog.

One thing always leads to another.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases will continue because of the lust in the heart.

Porn or fantasy sex by way of masturbation, for some gets old and the need to “connect” with a body ensues. Then once you’ve had him or her, you look for others to increase the excitement.

The CDC has already put the warning out that multiple partners increase the risks of acquiring STDs, including AIDS.

But in England, there is news that flesh eating diseases are emerging. It won’t be long before it turns into an epidemic.

And chances are, so far, there’s no reports of it in the United States, but it’s a matter of time. Or worse, it’s already here and the media, like other STD reports, isn’t reporting it.

So if you insist on fornication, this consequential judgment is waiting for anyone willing to ignore self discipline.

Many males and female have said, “It’s never gonna happen to me.” And then you sense something wrong in your system, you go to the doctor to get checked, or worse, you don’t go at all. Suddenly, your statement comes to haunt you.

Self discipline can’t be done on your own.

You need the Lord Jesus in your life. You must be born again. It’s only by repentance of dead works, and faith towards God, through our Lord Jesus Christ can one exercise self control to avoid the consequences of sin on the earth.

But worse, is should you die before you make Jesus Lord over your life, it’s too late and the “Wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
