Many of you may have heard of “Face To Face.”
David E. Kelly claims to have seen Jesus in a face to face encounter.
Notice the picture of “Jesus.”
It’s a dead give away.
No one living today knows what the Lord looks like outwardly.
Especially when the Bible says, 1 John 3:2 (NKJV Strong’s) “Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
But first, it’s all over the Internet that Viki Yohe, a Christian singer, appeared on YouTube to explain a serious situation involving sexual immorality between her and David E. Taylor for 16 months.
Some of you may be familiar with David E. Kelly.
He gave a deposition regarding using ministry money for unlawful personal purposes. His answers were very crafty and questionable.
Now we’ve seen this before when another false teacher talked about angelic visitations while involved in adultery. He performed these sins even while well known Christian leaders were on stage, endorsing his ministry.
His name is Todd Bentley.
The saying goes…..“Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”
When you hear strange doctrines coming from people, if you don’t know your Bible and the God of the Bible, it’s very easy to be deceived.
And that’s not all.
More likely than not, sexual immorality is closely associated with it.
The point is simple. When there’s strange doctrines involved, sexual immorality will be closely associated.
Peter said these words in 2 Peter chapter 2 and verse 14….“…having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.”
In a recent video of David E. Taylor, he claims to be saying that pastors are speaking against his “divine ministry.”
Throughout his discourse, there’s no denial of the allegations of being sexually involved with Viki Yohe. Usually, if there’s false allegations, a person will defend their integrity.
To be charged with adultery, or with any kind of sexual immorality like porn, masturbation, prostitution, homosexuality, etc., when you’re involved in a very “powerful” ministry, you would do everything in your power to defend yourself against the charges, IF YOU’RE INNOCENT.
Instead, we see people use the same spiritual cliche’s that are hollow.
“If you speak against me and my powerful ministry, God will get you.”
The sad thing is, we all know that people have walked away from his “ministry.”
What also tends to happen is that he will do everything in his power to stop the bleeding. He’s being attacked. So, he is counter punching. It’s not that he’s being attacked.
He’s being EXPOSED.
Now regarding his claim of “visitation” of the Lord Jesus in a face to face encounter, it’s clear to me that the Lord does appear to people from time to time, but if such divine encounters occurred, it’s so sacred, that people will have a marked changed about them and they will more than likely not advertise the encounter.
In Viki Yohe’s YouTube video, if memory serves me correct, she accused David Kelly of being involved with another woman and he dumped Yohe. If this is true, if you’ve had an encounter with the Lord Jesus, you would NEVER engage in conduct that would bring questions to your walk in the Lord.
True ministers of the Lord are more concerned about the integrity of their relationship with God than with their ministry. In fact, more often than not, a minister can do without ministry.
You love the Lord more than the “ministry.”
So David E. Kelly’s claim to have had a Face To Face encounter with Jesus, if these allegations are true, are very suspect at best.
Then you have the very words of Jesus Himself in Matthew 24, verse 11
“Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.”
Matthew 24:23-28 (NKJV Strong’s)
“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.
Did you notice the two places that Jesus mentioned that false prophets will use to attract you to them?
Look…Here is the Christ.
Look…There is the Christ.
Look…He is in the desert.
Look…He is in the inner rooms.
These two places, the desert, and inner rooms are locations.
The desert is dry and the inner rooms are overt and covert secrets.
David E. Kelly said in one video about an “elite anointing.”
No such thing in the Bible.
They all begin with “Look.”
In order for you to look, you have to believe what they’ve said they’ve seen.
Always take with a grain of salt those that said they’ve seen the Lord and then they tell you to come and “look.”
Has anyone noticed that no one says that they’ve seen satan?
We must remember that people are hungry for a spiritual encounter with the Lord but they’re looking in places where Jesus isn’t there.
Here’s another thing.
They always have “spooky music.”
Most keyboardists know that “stringed” instruments pull on the emotions of people and they become more open to “spiritual” things with the right keys and chords.
Personality people on stages can’t do without it.
Music is a power few don’t resist.
But here’s another thing.
It also disarms the unsuspecting, if you yield, you surrender common sense, you disarm due diligence in investigating these hucksters, and once they do these things, they completely abandon the correct teachings of the Scriptures.
Paul said in 2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NKJV Strong’s) “…for the time will come when they (believers) will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”
In one video, where David E. Kelly was talking, while some may feel bad about him, we should feel even worse for the ones that were on the stage behind him.
It breaks my heart to look at people being deceived.
But the houses where there’s full of people, Proverbs 14:15 is all over the place.
If there’s ever a time we need to be even more discerning, it’s these times. But it’s a clear moment that we all should be aware of.
The coming of the Lord is imminent.
False prophets are rising with more frequency.
Paul said in 2 Timothy 3:13 (NKJV Strong’s) “But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
Take the time to investigate their fruit.
The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 7:15-20 (NKJV Strong’s) “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”
So at this time, it’s best to declare “Face To Face” as a very suspecting event and to steer clear of things like this. You can get more watching a man milk a goat than a man speaking great swelling idle words.
It’s when a person had their sin exposed that you would find them contrite and broken in their hearts for departing from the Lord and entering into sin.
A person will do one of two things.
If he’s innocent, fight the charges.
If they’re guilty, “Godly sorrow that works repentance, leading to salvation…”
Regarding David E. Kelly, we’ve seen him fight the charges but when you use a lot of spiritual cliche’s that we’ve heard before from other personality false prophets caught in sin, it’s clear that something isn’t right.
What is David E. Kelly also fighting?
To keep getting PAID.
If the money stops, you have to work for a living.
Paul said, “For the love of money is the root of all evil.”
You can’t sit a false prophet down. And you can’t make a false prophet sit down.
Ladies. Learn to guard your heart according to Proverbs 4:23.
Learn to be a lot more discerning and not allow yourself to be captured by the smooth words of a false prophet.
Sadly, Viki Yohe got taken as many women that are gullible.
Ladies, don’t be another victim.
If you’re thinking about getting close to a man of God, if he’s married, you have no right even thinking about it.
Keep your heart clean.
If you see a ring on him, walk away from him.
It’s not worth the fires of hell for one moment of pleasure.
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.”
You can read about these things in the links below.
Obviously, there is sadness in the Playboy world.
But we have to put things into perspective.
It’s very easy to condemn people but we also must understand that the Lord Jesus said that they are condemned already.
Jesus said in John 3:18-21….“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
You can’t condemn someone that is already condemned.
Today, many preachers live in hypocrisy like I did.
That one peek at a Playboy magazine aroused our flesh to view porn on scales unimagined.
I’ve read about a story of a pastor robbing banks to be able to by porn on the internet or PPV cable or satellite. Of pastors using their computers to finish their sermon in their pastor’s study, tell their secretaries to go home, and click on to site after site of porn in the house of worship.
No doubt, masturbating in their pastor’s study while watching porn.
That’s what sexual objectification does. It’s idolizing a woman’s body, pretending to have her sexually. Not realizing that you’ve worshipped her body as if her body was god. You bowed down in sexual worship, not realizing that behind every lustful eye, you are worshipping demons.
That’s why what Jesus said in Matthew 5:27-30 is there. The right eye lusts for her sexually, and the right hand engages in solo sex or outright touching another woman in adultery or fornication.
Many would love to think that Hugh Hefner is in heaven. Many will joke and say that he will be in Playboy heaven with angelic bunnies. Far from reality. You see, there is no sin in heaven. There’s God forgiven, sanctified, blood washed saints that were sinners in heaven.
But for certain, sinning in heaven is not happening there ever.
And there is no sinning in hell either.
Jesus said, “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
You will be too involved seeking to get out and too involved seeking relief from the pain and misery associated with the condemned place of the abode of departed Christ-less spirits.
Meaning that the pain of torment will be beyond what a person will be able to bear.
There is no Playboy mansion in hell. There aren’t any bunnies there either.
The pain and misery of hell will pale in comparison to the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.
Just imaging being responsible for plunging many men and women into hell by way of sexual immorality. Hugh Hefner will bear his own sins but he will also bear the responsibility of facilitating sexual immorality to plunge man people into hell.
We all know that there is a slight chance for everyone to get saved but when you live an unrepentant lifestyle, the odds of heaven for the unrepentant are very very slim.
Remember, the thief on the cross next to Jesus got saved moments from his own death. That’s why there is a very slight chance. But how many sinners would seriously look to the Lord when they are moments away from death themselves?
The Playboy mansion and its wicked activities drove men and women into the abyss of sexual immorality, leading down the staircase into the chambers of death.
And if that isn’t enough, countless men and women, perhaps, were infected with STDs and some women got pregnant.
I dare say that many of them killed their babies in abortion.
But this activity wasn’t just in the mansion. All across the world, their connections is apparently obvious. PPV cable or satellite, Playboy magazines, iPhones, CD’s and DVD’s made it possible to participate and be connected to viewing fornication on demand, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
This, and his death, is nothing to celebrate but the world will do everything in its power to celebrate this man and applaud his sexual empire. That’s the way the world works because it is, as Paul said, “the course of this world.”
My exposure to this wickedness started with 42 Street in NYC. While going to see decent movies along the route, there would be movie theater after movie theater of sexual immorality. Porn shops by the dozen. It was a haven for all manner of crime, adultery, fornication, bisexuality, and homosexuality.
The newspaper stands would be filled with Playboy magazines that tempted the imaginations of man. Fantasy sex which leads to pornography, and leads even deeper to act out sex in masturbation, adultery, fornication, and other forms of sexual immorality.
Trapping millions into the slave trade of sexual immorality.
Entrapped in this sin were billions of men and women, searching for intimacy, or to get a quick pick me up. The pleasures of sin dominates the fantasy world of men and women around the world.
There’s no question that Playboy played a central part in opening up the way to further sexual immorality.
The pursuit of the pleasures of the lust of the flesh, the eyes, and the pride of life intensified.
Playboy wouldn’t be enough. You go further into hard core porn and tap into the area of criminal sexual predation. For most men, the insatiable desire takes a man further than he is willing to go. Takes a woman to do daring things too. Some women are just as trapped as men.
There is nothing to celebrate here.
But Jesus can free any man or woman, but they must desire to leave their thirst for the flesh behind. They must cry out to God for His true love that will never be found in flesh. The Son can make a person free if they want to.
You can’t make people be free. They have to want to be free, and then there is the fight to stay free from every contaminating influence and every enslaving yoke of sexual immorality.
This happens when you find in the Savior all the love you will ever need for the rest of your life.
So what will it be?
Continue in sin, or to be free from it?
It’s not worth going to hell over.
The choice is up to you.

There’s many professed believers, even in matrimony, that believe that oral sex is no big deal.
In this report from FOX News, even in monogamous relationships, you could acquire the Human papillomavirus (HPV) disease.
Which further emphasizes the fact that STDs is there for a reason.
Many will defend oral sex and that’s expected.
Sadly, to their own peril, but at least you know that you could have avoided it if you’ve exercised sexual discipline.
Whether you’ve watched porn, then introduce what you’ve seen into your bedroom, we should never sin against the Lord and against our own bodies in the fulfillment of the lusts of the flesh and mind.
Many will argue that what goes on in the bedroom is your business.
But when the Lord institutes STD as consequential judgment against sin, God was already in your bedroom judging your sin.
A man walked across the street while I was waiting at the light with a shirt that said….
ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME
I said, yup, He sure will judge you.
Shirts like this is just a spin on Matthew 7:1.
When a person is convicted of sin and attempts to make arguments to continue in sin, shirts like these is a clear attitude of deliberate intent to defy God and His Word.
For the record, there is no specific verse in the Bible that declared that oral sex is forbidden. There is no specific verse that declared that masturbation is forbidden.
The other argument is that if the Bible is silent on these areas, we should be silent too.
On the contrary, just because the Bible is silent, it doesn’t give you permission.
Because there is no specific verse giving you permission to engage.
God put within us the ability to discern right from wrong.
When we’re asking questions to obtain permission, it is a search to justify sin where the Bible is silent. The Bible’s silence demand you come to the conclusion that you do not have permission, and therefore, you do not have God’s authorization.
PLUS……since STDs are associated with oral sex, or sexual immorality as a whole, it is further evidence that it’s prohibited.
If we were smart, we would see that STDs are only associated with lawless sexual acts and do everything in our power, as true believers in the Lord to be obedient and abstain from the very “appearance of evil.”
In normal sexual relationships, within holy matrimony, you are practicing safe sex. Besides, if you truly love your wife or husband, you would never introduce things of the world to do harm to them.
But, like I said, people will disagree.
The reason for such disagreement is that they’re experiencing a world of pleasure that they’re unwilling to give up. And that, in and of itself, is a bondage which hurts you in the long run.
If I am legally married, will oral sex send me to hell?
Absolutely not, unless you’re presently engaged in fornication, adultery, homosexuality, bisexuality, zoophilia, and other forms of sexual immorality, those sins are hell bound sins.
SO if oral sex in a monogamous faithful husband and wife relationship will not send me to hell, then why bring this up in the first place?
We see that STDs is connected to oral sex.
IF you want the HPV disease that is associated with oral sex, by all means, continue to engage in the act. It’s a matter of time before the results manifest. Just trying to get people to see that there’s certain things that could be avoided. It’s a clear warning to you.
Now if you want to ignore this warning, then it’s on you. You were aware of the risks and decided to continue in this behavior.
Proverbs 14:18 says……“The simple inherit folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.”
Proverbs 22:3 says…….“A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.”
Oh, btw, this HPV disease isn’t one of those things that flare up until perhaps months or years after acquisition. That is, if you continue to engage in oral sex, the possibility of it flaring up is inevitable.
All the more incentive to abstain from this behavior that opened the door to the disease in the first place.
Psalm 107:17 says, “Fools! Because of your transgressions and because of your iniquities are afflicted.”
You do not have to be afflicted.
Meaning……you are a fool when you open yourself to sin and reap its rewards.

I find that dealing with the area of porn, it just leaves the impression that men and women just sit there and watch naked people commit the sin of adultery, fornication, bisexuality, and homosexuality, and then turn off the TV, cellphone, iPad, or whatever device they are viewing and that’s the end.
Nothing else goes on.
But those of us that have been bound to this know that when it comes to watching porn, acting out sexually is part of the package.
Whether we act out sexually with another person or masturbate, the heat of sexuality is ever present. There must be a release of sexual tension.
Charisma put out an article on their page regarding overcoming porn.
Every one of us that came out from viewing pornography applaud anyone that address this issue.
In most articles that Charisma posts, they usually leave a place for comments but evidently, they chose not to allow for comments. And that’s fine.
Thank goodness for bloggers that will reveal a lot more of what goes on with pornography so as not to cut corners or “sugar coat” the anti porn message.
Porn is not just a show. It is demonic activity. Pornography is an “accelerant.”
Lust is already in the heart and mind of a man or woman, and all they want is something a little extra to heighten and “hijack” the chemicals and emotions operating in the body to achieve orgasm or releasing sexual tension.
But on the spiritual side, a man or woman must defect from righteousness, operate in disobedience to the commands of the Lord to remain pure, obey the enticement from demonic sources to be drawn away to commit sexual immorality.
Demons are always involved in sexual immorality and it is covetousness, which is idolatry that takes place wherever and whenever porn is involved.
Men are sight oriented and women are touch oriented.
What is the combination that occurs in sexual activity?
Sight and touch.
What attracts men to porn?
What they see. Then the arousal process begins. Sight and stimulation.
In the case of men, manual stimulation while aroused by sight is what makes masturbation, that leads to orgasm, the number one reason why men are bound to porn. A man doesn’t have to mentally manipulate or coerce a woman into sex. He engages in solo sex without relational involvement.
According to Dr. William Struthers, “porn hijacks the brain,” and he engages in masturbation, pretending to have sex with that image.
He deliberately avoids the normal relational process because all he wants is sex.
In the privacy of his home or hotel room, he engages himself sexually, brings himself to orgasm, and it’s over.
According to a source, the average time a man spends watching porn in a hotel room is 12 minutes.
A man doesn’t need porn to engage himself in masturbation. His mental capacities can engage in solo sex because, again Dr. William Struthers, in his book “Wired For Intimacy,” said that a man is wired for sex. He’s done a case study of individuals regarding the effects of porn on the brain.
While I was taking a course from Liberty University on Sexuality, another person did a case study years ago on the effects of porn on the brain. There is scientific evidence that porn is dangerous to the brain and its objective is to impose and implant abnormal sexual behavior.
But these studies all come to the same conclusion.
Porn is just an accelerant.
In order for a fire to start, all you need is three basic components.
Fire, material, and oxygen.
Eliminate one of these three, and you cannot have a fire.
But a person isn’t satisfied with just the basic components.
To get a bigger fire you need an accelerant.
It’s not a bigger orgasm that will be achieved. It’s the way, methods, or instruments that you use to get to the place of no return.
The man or woman is bound to use this and other accelerants to achieve orgasm.
So he or she returns, day after day, night after night to achieve something that is illusive.
You could also factor in the emotional episodes that people go through during the day that ties into achieving complete human satisfaction.
It’s an acronym for H– Hungry. A– Angry. L– Lonely. T– Tired.
When any of these emotions surface, this is the place where sexual temptation is sure to come, but also remember what James 1:14-16 says.
“But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.”
These things are always operating in the carnal believer until crucified.
Only those that respond to satan get resurrected from the dead to commit sin.
Remember what Paul said that we are to be dead to sin but alive to God.
We cannot be alive to sin and alive to God at the same time.
With HALT, we could see satan personally attacking the Lord Jesus in the wilderness. Jesus was Hungry. Jesus was physically Lonely. At the very least, two out of the four were present.
Remember. Jesus was tempted in all points like ourselves yet, without sinning (see Hebrews 4:15).
Now men are looking to be seduced and women and men (homosexuality) will use the tools to draw them from strength to struggle. They give in to the struggle because of the reward of orgasm, but it always lead to an empty feeling inside.
Sexual intimacy is to be shared with a person of the opposite sex within the confines of matrimony. Yes, it involves relational involvement so as not to cheapen the person. Hence, “Marriage is honorable in all and the bed undefiled, but adulterers and fornicators God will judge.”
Above that is the fact that sexual immorality is an act of sin, which is an act of betrayal of the only One that could fully satisfy our every need (see John 4:1-42).
When a man or a woman engages in sexual immorality, he or she is seeking intimacy.
The highest form of intimacy is with the Lord in spirit and in truth, worshipping the Father. In the natural, the Lord provides for natural intimacy in marriage. And when the natural intimacy is achieved in legal matrimony, we go back to the Father for full satisfaction.
So when it comes to masturbation, achieving orgasm outside of the marriage, we are robbing ourselves of complete satisfaction as designed by the Lord.
You can read the Charisma article here
In the “gospel music industry,” we see that another noted “artist” is announcing his marital failures and possibly “sin.” The devil’s trophy case of noted singers, musicians, and preachers is filling up. Israel said that he sinned in his marriage, but few are willing to say that “they’ve sinned against God.”
Israel never mentioned on his FB page that he sinned against God.
And that’s more important.
You can’t cheat or commit adultery against your wife until you commit adultery against God.
Obviously from sources, his mistress was a gospel artist. Either a Jezebel driven woman and or just a sexually immoral woman as Proverbs teaches men to avoid.
When you read into the statements of many failed ministers and gospel singers, the pitfall into sin is obvious. If this is to be true, the preponderance of evidence suggests that porn and masturbation is a strong probability in his life. Not every man is caught in this whirlwind, but the statistics are strongly in favor that many men are into porn and masturbation.
Consider the fact that this was kept hush hush until now.
What was he protecting or keeping SECRET?
Protecting his music and keeping his sin a secret.
Never mind keeping his relationship with God and salvaging his marriage.
It was all about maintaining his reputation because as a result of his divorce, the sin was rising to the top to be exposed.
That’s how we do church these days.
Keep ministering, forget our relationship with God. Marriage fails. Oh well.
The pitfalls of marriage is always, sex, money, and relationship management.
It is very easy to read into the “sinned” part.
Secret Sexual Sins.
It takes discipline to stay away from the sexual immoral women. The interconnectedness of music and sex knows no boundaries. Psalm 90:8 (NLT) says this, “You spread out our sins before you—our secret sins—and you see them all.”
As I have said, the Lord was never caught off guard. The Lord seen this happen before the world was founded. So we need to take another look at what always happens that lead up to physical adultery.
Matthew 5:27-28 “You have heard the commandment that says, ‘You must not commit adultery.’ But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
In order for you to commit physical adultery, you must commit spiritual adultery first.
You must disregard your relationship with the Lord. You must cast aside prayer, worship in spirit and in truth is cast to the side. Deliberately disobey the Word of God to abstain. The Holy Spirit and discipline is suppressed.
satan demands that you leave your holiness, prayer and Word life at the door of darkness. He demands you to snuff out your light to enter the place of darkness.
Leave the Lordship of Jesus at the door.
And whatever wounds a person may have in their marriage becomes the false reason to sin against God.
You then begin to eye a female for sexual connection. She agrees to give you what you refuse to get from your own wife according to Proverbs 7.
But something else was burning. Releasing sexual tension through masturbation. You do not need porn to masturbate. Just an image or imaginations that lead to fulfilling a sexual fantasy. But as with all men, it gets boring. That line you said you never cross was a lie.
You arrange to “hook up” with a member of your church, praise and worship singers, or someone from the outside to attempt to be discreet within the frame work of a false sense of security.
All sexual sins is a result of lust in the heart.
James 1:14-15 and 1 John 2:15-17 reveals this.
Hurting in the soul over something that happened in a marriage is a pitiful excuse to commit adultery. Not that any excuse to sin against God is ever good enough. Sinning against God is not outright hatred of God unless you were never born again.
As John the apostle said, “Anyone that is born of God cannot sin.”
Because true believers prove their love for God by keeping His commandments (see John 14:15).
In the Charisma article, it is very easy to try to smooth over the fact that sexual sin took place. It goes to show you at what lengths the “Charismatics” will use vague terminology to cover the sin of an international gospel artist.
The Bible is clear that “love covers a multitude of sins.”
But the Bible also says in 1 Corinthians 13 that “love rejoices not in iniquity but rejoices in the truth.”
The gospel music industry is noted for bringing some of the most exciting contemporary music into the house of worship. Some are amazing and straight from God. Others just have too much of the world in it to focus on God, holiness, righteousness, sanctification, redemption, discipline, consecration, and total devotion.
Evident is the combination of marital situations that push a minister beyond boundaries and limitations to maintain a strong impenetrable healthy bond and the thirst to perform.
When a man or a woman is consumed and defined by what they do, they lose who and whose they are in Christ.
As with sexual sins, there is always the preponderance that when sexual neglect takes place, the man is “Wired for Intimacy.” At some point, if he isn’t as disciplined as he should be, the tempter will tempt him to entice his desires. Lustful desires that lurk in a man’s fleshly needs one hot moment.
One match starts the fire.
Ministry is full of these four things.
This is what Pastor Roger Jamison of Sword Of The Spirit Tabernacle in Brooklyn NY taught me. These are the emotional tell tale signs of an individual in ministerial overdrive. His soul is wide open to be tempted sexually. The devil opens up the matchbook and strikes the match.
A hot looking woman or man.
Infatuated and obsessed after a sexual separation due to marital issues makes a man or woman ripe to commit adultery.
The late David Wilkerson said this while praying.
“God, keep me humble. Keep me on my knees.”
The one place where there is power is prayer. Prayer. Prayer. Obedience. Obedience. Obedience.
Pastor Roger Jamison also said that we must “Guard our unguarded moments.”
Jesus said in Matthew 26:41 “Watch and pray, lest you fall into temptation. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.”
Peter said, “Be sober, be vigilant. For your adversary, the devil walks about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
When you are watching over your life, you constantly tell the devil that you are not on his menu. You have to tell him this every time till your last dying breath or when the Lord returns.
As many of us have said, Israel Houghton will not be the last gospel artist to fall into sexual sin. There are many others that have and will never reveal it to save their “ministry.”
But Jesus said this in Matthew 10:39 “He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.”
Jesus said in Luke 12:2 “For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.”
Come Clean! Or Be Exposed. (A chapter in my book Secret Sexual Sins).
More and more, we are finding that people are willing to lose their relationship with the Lord to find life. But Jesus requires and demands that we lose our lives for His sake to find it.
Sin always leads to death.
The one thing that the Holy Spirit tells me that keeps me from sinning against God sexually is the fact that if I entertain that sin in thought, deed, and words, what if Jesus were to come at that moment?
Would I be eligible to be raptured or will I remain on the earth to watch the wrath of God be poured out? What if my soul was required at that moment?
Meaning, what if I were watching porn and masturbating, and I happen to die? Would I go to heaven to appear before God, or will I die and go to hell?
Ezekiel 18:24 answers this question.
“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.”
It’s a fearful thing to know that you missed out when you could have disciplined yourself to abstain.
One moment of sinful pleasure is not worth an eternity in hell.
We pray that Israel Houghton has repented as he has said. But more than this first step must be taken.
If he is involved with porn and masturbation, he is still caught in the whirlwind of sexual immorality. There has to be a clearing of the deck. A clearing of the heart. A full renunciation of sexual immorality. And a renewed commitment to abstain from every form of sin.
Avoid fornication, adultery, homosexuality, bisexuality, porn, masturbation, and bestiality.
It’s not worth going to hell over.
The Charisma article could be read here.
Kirk and Kanye will be doing a perverted “gospel” album.
When darkness has a hold on you, the effects are devastating. Looking at the face of Kirk, this Scripture comes to mind.
Proverbs 13:15b, “…the way of the transgressor is hard.”
I was attacked a couple of days ago. As I was looking at the News on my iPhone and a porn site popped up twice. I was prepared to always look away and I immediately deleted the site. satan is not going to get me ever again to click a site to intentionally watch porn.
While there are many ways to head this attack off, I know that the Lord is strong and mighty in my life and that like Paul, “...nothing shall separate me from the love of God in Christ Jesus” (see Romans 8:31-39).
When you see the video, you will see no quoting of Scriptures by Kirk to support any of his statements. When you depart from God, the first thing that goes is the Word of God.
The Word in Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision the people perish.”
You are either involved in the sin of homosexuality, or you are still in porn and masturbation, or both. It’s debatable, but one pastor told me that masturbation is the door to homosexuality.
Here is the reason.
