FB (FaceBook): Understanding The Ambush Of Perversion

Recently, I was ambushed by the ad section of FB (Facebook).

Everyone knows about the “Ad” section on FB. It’s the advertisement slide show. New friends to connect with as well as other interesting ads that connect with your taste constantly flashes before your eyes. These items are connected to your profile and preferences. With certain FB potential friends, sometimes they wear stuff (low cleavage items) to catch your attention. Some women that profess to know Jesus do it all the time.

While there are nasty male preachers and believers, there are nasty women that profess to know Jesus too.

Yes, ladies, it is a problem.

Femininity is a power that females use to attract men, whether men or women are married or not.

Females that profess to know the Lord should know better than to flaunt themselves but they do it anyway.

When these women are successful, and because of a lack of discipline, males and females engage in fornication and adultery. The male is called a fool and the female is called sexually immoral, whores, harlots, and seductresses.

It is just as bad with males.

Straight, as well as homosexuals advertise themselves too. For those that struggle with SSA (same sex attraction) issues, FB constantly reminds those that were delivered from the sin of homosexuality of the “fun.”

For those that were recently delivered from Secret Sexual Sins, the sins are still “fresh in their flesh.”

Many items pass through and every now and then, you will see things that should be flagged.

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

Love of money is what drives all kinds of evil.

When the Word of righteousness is brought to bear on unrighteousness, money will be used to stop someone from getting delivered by the power of God. That’s because when a person gets delivered, they will not spend any more money to watch porn, go to the bars, straight or gay, they will not buy condoms, no longer will they to go to the doctor to get treated for STDs, and abortion would not be an issue.

God broke the addiction which breaks the money chain, and that’s why they do incredible warfare to get you to return. This is the reason they hook little children early. In the food chain, they have to keep a supply of people willing to go to great lengths to have something fulfilled. The addictions, the desires, the false sense of satisfaction. All of these things are equated to keeping a person in the dark to commit dark acts of depraved indifference to themselves and to others to satisfy themselves.

In most cases, people are willing to spend money on satisfaction, knowing that they need to pay for rent, lights, gas, and other necessities of life. Hence, the reason behind the economic judgment on the church and the United States.

Pleasure comes before responsibility.

While fallen man knows the limits, as long as a man is willing to chase after certain things, the money chain will not be broken. It’s the theory of the predator in operation. You gotta stay addicted because I gotta live.

The moment you get delivered from the addiction, they will look for others to remain addicted, or they suffer.

Folks, I have chosen to let the world suffer.

I gotta stay saved and they can be saved too.

That’s why there is such a fight against righteousness.

Revenue.

Everything is connected. Drugs, alcohol, medicine, hospitals, clothing, cars, hotels and motels, make up, and food.

When you put up the Word of God, (not destructive criticism, there is a difference), someone will get offended because somewhere in the chain, the money is about to get cut off.

If you study the book of Acts, particularly the 19th chapter, the gospel came to the city of Ephesus. The city of Ephesus was a commerce area with a population of over 300,000. The coppersmiths were in business making statues of Diana and they were raking in the ducats.

Diana is a multi breasted idol distantly connected to the Asherah or Baal forms of worship. Infertility is connected to sexual immorality.

The coppersmiths were making money off of these perverted statues and the people brought their sorcery books and other forms of the occult to be burned. The revival was so powerful verse 20 revealed the outcome of a direct move of God.

“So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.”

At the end of the revival that Paul, Aquilla and Priscilla founded, and Timothy, later sent by Paul to be the First Bishop of Ephesus, the membership or people that regularly attended that church numbered over 100,000. John, the apostle of the Lamb and Mary, the mother of Jesus, were among members there.

How?

According to tradition, the bones of Mary and John were discovered in the region. Also remember that John was exiled on the isle of Patmos and when he had a vision on the Lord’s day, he was given instructions by the Head of the church to give a letter to the messenger or pastor of the church at Ephesus.

Here’s what I wanted to get to.

The revenue was jeopardized as a result of the gospel being preached. Sales declined on occult books. Sales declined on spells to cast upon people to curse them or cause them to fall under a perverted spell. Sales declined on the purchase of Diana of the Ephesians. They all went to the theater. Paul, who wanted to enter the middle of the riot to preach, was kept from sealing the deal. I do not think Paul would have been harmed but then again, you never know. For two hours, the people shouted.

The gospel threatened their economy.

The effective preaching of the gospel caused a riot.

Ineffective preaching will not cause a riot.

No one will bother you but when you strike a cord, you will see them come at you because you are a threat to their economy.

On a different note, when truth comes, people act like little babies and cry to momma FB to block, remove, or close the accounts. Granted, I’ve said some things that definitely raised a few eyebrows, but not worthy of a block, removal, or closing of an account. There are other tactics that is utilized. Such as temporarily cutting off your account, freeze certain pages, eliminate the share button on certain items detrimental to cash-flow, and image dressing.

However, there are some ads that will not get blocked that come very close to violating obscenity laws. And the use of vulgar language is constantly seen on the social networks, but nothing is done to address it. However, put the Word of God up and God’s Word to the sinner is obscene and vulgar.

The ambush that took place was probably generated because of the articles that I post regarding Secret Sexual Sins and other related items.

When it comes to applying the Word of God in the world, you will draw much criticism from those that are not in the Body of Christ masquerading as bona fide believers and especially those that profess to be believers in the Body of Christ, but live in sin.

Sadly, those that profess to be believers and live below the level of Matthew 7:21-23 are the wayside people that Jesus spoke of in Luke 8:12 that let the devil steal the Word from their hearts, unless they believe.

Anyway, the ambush was salacious ads. One by one, of women. Naked, cleavage/scantily clad, and hand covering certain obvious parts.

Some of you that were delivered from the sin of homosexuality may have seen ads that are connected to the gay lifestyle like, gay cruises, bars, parades, and things of this nature.

Some people, including misguided, gullible children of God will not think nothing of it and tell you to just ignore it. Some will tell you that you are misguided, gullible, and into this stuff too much.

These are the same believers that really do not understand the wiles of the devil.

As a side note, this is true spiritual warfare when images are thrown at you and you have to exercise discipline not to yield to these temptations.

You intercessory prayer folks that border on space cadets think that you understand spiritual warfare and cry out to the principalities and powers, and command them to come down, in Jesus’ name. There is no Scriptural evidence of the Lord Jesus ever carrying out that level of warfare you claim to talk about. The devils He cast out were in people. Within the safe confines of the four walls, many claim to chase demons out of cities. Yet, the demons remain at large in the people on the street corner.

We think that prayer changes things. Wrong! It’s the God that answers prayer in accordance with His will that changes things. it’s time to dispel the myth of non Biblically unsubstantiated empowerment.

Go figure!

Anyway, true spiritual warfare is when you have been inundated with things that pull on your flesh. You resist by renewing the mind with the Word of God. You resist by prayer. You resist by praise. You resist by turning off the Internet, shutting down FB, and cut off the avenues of demonic attack.

You must remember, if you keep yourself, it is not by walking through the fire. It is by keeping away from the fire.

Jesus prayed, “…and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.”

Paul said, “Avoid the very appearance of evil.” And “Flee fornication.”

You go to the movie theaters and the trailers are full of salacious ads. Some of you have already made up your minds to go see that movie, not realizing that the devil is preaching to you. The devil is ministering to you the word of death. The devil is ministering to you the very things that pull on your flesh and mind.

Brothers are seduced and they file every feminine body part to fantasize and masturbate off of later.

So it is with these ads that come at me. I am firmly aware of the intent and I identify it as a clear and present danger to the sanctification and holiness of God established in me by the grace of God.

You must recognize quickly that the enemy will not let you off the hook when you claim to be delivered. You must be able to run like Joseph. No man can stand where he once was conquered. We must utilize every means of escape according to 1 Corinthians 10:13.

I am not going to leave nothing to chance. When you do, that is a position of pride that the enemy was waiting on. When you think that you can handle it, this is where you are the most vulnerable. Flee and avoid is the position of strength. Stay and camp is the position of weakness. Grace works when we flee and avoid. Foolishness works when we stay and camp.

Therefore, the ads targeted against the righteous is not just harassment. It is a vulgar form of perversion to stop righteousness from destroying their bottom line at your expense. It is also a double whammy. It is also designed to pull on your flesh to get you back in the dark world of Secret Sexual Sins. Take a good look at certain news on the Internet, and you you will see the same thing.

Somewhere on that page, there will be a woman or a man to sexually attract your attention.

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations (reasonings) and every high thing (salacious pictures) that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”

Facebook makes a living on ads, but you have to be careful, child of God.

Why Do I Keep Falling Into Sexual Sins? Am I Hopeless?

You’ve been there, time and time again. Wondering if you will ever get to the place where you will make a stand against answering the call to fulfill the lusts of your mind and flesh.

You find yourself watching women, watching men, or touching yourself. Or you hook up with that sister. You hook up with that brother.

You said that you would cut ties, or that you would never cross lines.

All for naught.

Each fall weighs heavily on your mind and you have reached the place of hopelessness.

I’ve been there. Millions of men have been there. Millions of women too.

Masturbation, sight and mental adultery, and porn was a very difficult habit to break in my life. It took a Word from the Lord at the time the Lord blessed me with a tremendous deliverance to get me to quit.

I learned that just because something is difficult it doesn’t mean that it can’t be broken.

The power of sin was broken on the cross, on the body of Jesus. But the human will to accept that fact and apply that fact to my mind and body proved more difficult to incorporate. A “what’s the use” mentality, and other notions, fueled my perverted passion to satisfy myself.

Put aside for a moment “trigger mechanisms, medicinal properties, pharmaceutical and endocrine chemical dependency adventures, love and esteem needs.”

All these things are great identifying points where sexual immorality is permitted, but the root cause of all sin is pleasure.

If sin weren’t pleasurable, you wouldn’t even consider doing it. But when we look at how the Lord is affected by what we do, we will either suppress how the Lord feels in pursuit of pleasure apart from God or we defy the Lord on the level of Zimri and Cozbi.

Too often, we look at the breach in the barrier and stand there, doubting if anything could be done to consider challenging what is in front of us. Christ made that breach so we could escape but we linger because to walk away after experiencing false pleasure after false pleasure is enough to look back……..like Lot’s wife.

When habits of the mind and body are established repetitively, to undo the training, one must find “grace to help in time of need.”

Your only chance is to completely surrender in total obedience to the grace of God.

There is a song called “Total Praise” by Richard Smallwood. I wish someone would create a song called Total Obedience.

These days, praise and worship songs of our times that exalts the name of the Lord are very popular, as they should be.

But equally important is the heart condition, before, during, and after the song is sung.

Anyway…..

The grace of God is not pleasant. Grace demands complete severance from the utensils of sin. Jesus called it…“cut it off…”

In Setting Captives Free, the course “Way To Purity” by Mike Cleveland, he called it, “radical amputation.”

That stuck with me. There are varying degrees of where men are with the grace of deliverance necessary to stay free.

What makes deliverance sticks for some is knowing that you are accountable to other men. This is very scary and prohibitive of men because men do not like it when other men stick their noses in their sexual business. We have no problem talking about male sexual conquest but to talk repentantly about sex……..no way.

That’s part of the secrecy of Secret Sexual Sins.

Secrecy is the breeding ground of sexual sins.

Reminds me of a man that was in a fatal car accident on the FDR in Manhattan. He was wealthy and married. With children. They found out that he was seeing a mistress for a few years because that’s where he was either headed or going to.

Secrecy is the breeding ground of sexual sins.

It’s the same with a very popular football player. Steve “Air” McNair. Father of three and married. His mistress shot him five times and committed suicide after Steve dumped her. Steve found another mistress and that was the tipping point for her. She had nothing to lose, was in financial troubles, and decided to end it all.

Secrecy is the breeding ground of sexual sins.

Reminds me of Jim Bakker, sleeping with a church secretary before being convicted of fraud. Jimmy Swaggart going to a hotel room to masturbate to a stripper. Both married with children. Reminds me of Pastor Henry Lyons who used National Baptist Convention money to pay his mistress to keep quiet and live a lavish lifestyle. The wife of Henry Lyons burned the house down, literally. The mistress died in prison and Henry Lyons spent time in jail.

Secrecy is the breeding ground of sexual sins.

Chances are, each one of these men have deep secret lives of porn and masturbation. Look at the late Dr. Tims. Where did you think he got the idea of hooking up with an exotic dancer. Look no further than the Internet and porn sites.

Some of you may be thinking that bring up these sins is unjustified.

Quite the contrary.

Put my name there and I am justified.

My secret life mirrors every man that has ever watched porn and masturbated in secrecy.

Very few articles or interviews will reveal the real hidden secret life of men and identify the root cause of scandals.

Masturbation and porn in the life of powerful men.

That’s why men run from the Lord. They never come to church because they do not want to be accountable. If they do show up in church, forget about talking about what is deeply hidden in the hearts and minds of men.

It’s not that accountability would have saved these men because the person being held accountable must submit. You can’t check what is in the heart if the heart refuses to show up. That’s where the problem is.

When a man refuses to submit to measurable, confrontational, compassionate accountability, he can never be trusted.

But on the other hand, such accountability, depending upon who is doing the accounting, must be firm but fair. Not manipulative or coercive. Confrontation is like two pugilists and when one doesn’t want to be pushed, it is important to recognize that and know when to back off.

Accountability is never man assuming a God position.

Paul said this in Galatians 6:1……

“Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in the spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.”

It’s learning how to help a person through a difficult moment of trials and temptation to help him get to a place of sustained victory. Then you have to let the Lord help him with grace to stand on their own. You can’t hold your son’s hand all your life because sooner or later, your time on earth will end. But what you instill within them must suffice and then you have to commit their life into the hands of a Faithful Creator.

It’s like being a dentist in a shark tank.

For some men, they cannot touch the Internet. The trap is set. It’s a “one thing leads to another” system.

When a woman is pictured with cleavage and legs, men click the image to see more. And then it leads to other places on the Internet all the way to free porn.

Yes, I’ve been there.

In my audio blog on Secret Sexual Sins on BlogTalkRadio.com, (here is the link blogtalkradio.com/prevailingword1) I shared a testimony that I downloaded so much Internet porn that when you click on one site, a cascade of images would rain on the computer.

So much so that my laptop couldn’t handle the downloads and froze the computer. I had to shut the laptop down and restart it all over again because the images were coming too fast for the memory to handle.

There are other men that cannot turn their eyes away from women. In the store, the mall, the street, driving the car, church, work, subway, and on the bus. As soon as you see them, the mind goes into “check him or her out mode.”

It’s a search and be destroyed mission.

While at a conference with preachers, here comes this young looking girl and in fitted jeans too. So my eyes went in another direction to avoid lusting and I observed where their eyes went.

Lust mode.

Why do I keep falling for the same thing, you are asking? It’s because we fail to realize that every part of us belongs to the Lord. God created all of our faculties and through the Word, we have an obligation to obey the Word. To stop the fall, we must obey the Word of God, without thought or question.

We must refuse to accept hopelessness and use it as an excuse to continue to fail.

We must identify what leads us from one place to anther and then make a Job 31:1 commitment with our eyes. A Matthew 5:28-30 commitment to not commit sight adultery. A 1 Corinthians 9:27 commitment to discipline and subdue the body, to literally beat our bodies into submission. A 1 Peter 5:9 and James 4:7-8 commitment to submit to God, resist the devil, drawn near to God and God drawing near to us, and cleansing our hands.

Ladies, you can reapply this or transpose this as you see fit for your sexual accountability group.

The first rule of accountability is to man up and own up.

The second rule of accountability is to obey the Word.

The third rule of accountability is never be proud of your accomplishments because you can fall at any moment.

The fourth rule of accountability is to please only one Person, the Lord.

The fifth rule of accountability is to maintain constant contact with a group of men you feel safe to trust with the secrets of your life.

Like Peter said….“if you do these things and abound, you will never fall…”

Finally, Sister Selena Mosley of Equipped For Change Ministries was challenged by an individual. This person stated that Sister Selena wasn’t delivered because she talked about homosexuality so much.

Well, the man in the tombs, who was possessed with an unclean spirit, was delivered by the Lord, the man spent time with Jesus and wanted to stay with Jesus. But the Lord told him to go and tell what great things the Lord has done for him and has had compassion on him.

Telling others about how great a deliverance the Lord gave us is what we are supposed to do. In fact, rarely do people fall when they chronicle and regularly speak of their deliverance.

Sometimes, when people do not talk about their deliverance, it’s part of their Secret Sexual Sins kind of living. I do not believe that people should be proud about “their” deliverance in terms of wearing it like a combat badge of honor. We don’t need fake heroes.

But on the other hand, others are looking for a testimony that is real and authentic. A genuine deliverance that give a person that is struggling, some hope that the grace of God does, in fact, work.

Sisters Selena Mosley, Janet Boynes, Kiana Kiwi-Dennis, Denise Jones,
Charlene E Hios,
Costina Sheppard, Charlene Cothran, and all the other wonderful ladies in the Lord whom God has genuinely set free, keep telling your story.

Someone is listening.
