But what we are seeing is a willingness to address the works of darkness to set captives free.
Could a believer practice lewdness and still be saved?
Could a believer be demon possessed?
Could a believer be delivered from lewdness?
There are many believers that unknowingly yield to demonic spirits by adhering to their perverted suggestions to engage in sexual sins. A believer cannot be possessed because you are either a habitation of God through the Spirit or you are a temple of demons. Let’s look at the Bible for the answer.
1 John 1:5-10 says “This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.”
John starts off by letting us know that “God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.”
Right there the Bible tells us that God cannot be in darkness and be light at the same time?
So it is with believers. We cannot be in darkness and be in the light at the same time.
How many of you know that it is impossible for darkness and light to be in the same place at the same time.
Here’s how it works.
Light moves darkness. You never see darkness move light. Light moves or disappear and then darkness comes. So a person has to either wait for light to leave, or walk out of the light. For instance, when it is too hot in the sun, what do we do? We seek the shelter of shade. We walk out of the sun, into a shady area. Hence, a lot of shady believers.
Notice 1 Thessalonians 5:4-10. “But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.
For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.
For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.”
You see, the activities that are done by men and women are done during the night. If you are a true child of God, you would refrain from practicing evil deeds just like you avoid evil deeds done at night. So they that sleep, customarily sleep at night. Those that get drunk, customarily get drunk at night.
They wait for darkness to come to perform their deeds. They wait for light to leave to perform their deeds.
So it is with true believers that live carnal or flesh ruled lives. They deliberately walk out of the light to enter into darkness.
To willingly engage in works of darkness as a professed believer may be indicative of two things.
1. You were never saved.
2. You never grew in the Lord to discipline your flesh and mind to abstain from darkness.
Does it indicate demon possession?
Unless you were never born again.
It indicates that demon spirits are operating in your mind as you yield your flesh to their temptations, thoughts, and evil suggestions.
However, if you are not careful, as demon spirits suggest more evil into your life and you obey them, there is a possibility that you could be done with walking in righteousness and forever turn away from the Lord (see Hebrews 6:1-8).
Carnal believers struggle with the flesh because of what they are feeding on during the week after service.
Notice what Paul said in Romans 8:5-9.
“For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you.”
That’s why you could be a believer, but you haven’t learned to set your mind on the Lord in obedience to His Word.
The flesh ruled mind is always against God.
That’s where professed believers are.
When they are engaged in perversion from unclean spirits, anytime the truth about perversion comes, they war against the truth.
When you tell them that anal and oral sex is wrong, either they are engaging in these perverted acts, or they are sympathetic to those that engage in lewd acts. They have their Biblically established arguments against Biblically established prohibitions.
In other words, like the devil, they will use the Bible to get you to back off.
No one in their right mind would eat feces. But professed believers practice anal sex and then oral sex.
The perverted argument is that “there is nothing in the Bible that prohibits anal and oral sex.”
There doesn’t have to be.
The anus was created for excreting feces.
The vagina and penis was designed for multiple purposes to excrete urine, menstruation, for ejaculation of semen to procreate, and for sexual pleasure……NOT FOR…..putting your mouth on something where defecation or ejaculation took place.
When a man ejaculates in the wrong place, it’s perversion. Semen was never intended to be swallowed like water, or soda water.
This is unclean.
And you know it.
Now another argument is that urine is clean.
Now we all know that when a person urinates, body fluids are removed. Everyone know that when you walk by urine, the smell is noticeable. If urine is clean, then why not go by the wall and have a drink? Now no one in the right mind would ever do that.
It takes someone in the wrong state of mind to walk up to the walk and drink what came out of a man or woman. So what would make me or anyone else think that urine is clean during oral sex?
Of course you do not see the futility of this argument because when it comes to pleasure, the blindness of men deliberately suppress the truth. If you took the time to read my blogs from before, you would have noticed that the penis excrete a salty substance of pre ejaculation fluid to cleanse the urethra of semen residue from the last ejaculation and……….drum roll……………cymbal crash…………urine.
With anal sex, we know that this is perverted because the anus is exclusively for defecation.
To lick or penetrate this area is the beelzebub special.
Erroneously, some believe that beelzebub means “lord of the flies.”
Strong’s Concordance definds beelzebub as “dung-god.”
Dung is feces.
So when a person engages in anal sex, this is the beelzebub special. You are literally worshipping the god of dung. So when a man penetrates another man or woman’s anus, or his wife’s anus, this is disgusting, nasty, perverted sex. You are doing as instructed by unclean spirits.
It’s not out of a natural desire to naturally please your wife sexually, but it is a perverse desire straight from unclean spirits.
Because sex that is not normal and perverted comes from unclean spirits.
In almost every instance where unclean spirits were dealt with by the Lord Jesus, there is no question that sexually perverse spirits were in people. For instance, the men in the tombs had unclean spirits (see Matthew 8:28-34). Two men, naked in the tombs? You may have doubts, but I have none that these were two homosexuals bound by unclean spirits.
Unclean means “morally lewd.”
These two men were fierce. No one could tame them. When they attempted to put chains on them, they plucked the chains like tooth picks. They were possessed by Legion because they were many. In other words, these demon spirits would enter into them by the hundreds.
Now when it comes to demon possession, they are not saved. A believer cannot contain God and devils at the same time. However, an immature believer could be instructed by demons to perform certain acts until they repent, and renew their minds with the Word of God, and escape the instruction of demons according to 1 Corinthians 10:13, James 4:7-8, and 2 Corinthians 10:4-5.
