Galatians 5:16-21 (NKJV)
“I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.“
Notice what Paul by the Holy Spirit shared about these things. In particular, adultery, fornication (porn), uncleanness (extravagant immorality-escort), lewdness (unbridled shameless lust).
Sexual immorality always takes you further than you’re willing to go. To levels never imagined. If we give into to one level of sexual immorality, we find ourselves going further, and further.
But every lustful desire have a genesis. It starts out with perceived innocence and then leads you into places of no shame.
Sexual struggles is common in many believers. The urges and impulses within the flesh and the desire of the mind to be sexually satisfied. We call it a struggle but what is it. It’s only a struggle IF we’re found fighting against it for a season and when the mind is convinced that it will give us unspeakable pleasure, the struggle ends.
Look at what Paul said.
“The flesh lusts (wars/is hostile) against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh.”
It’s a constant battle and either one must win. And yes, the man that willingly desires to fulfill the lusts of the flesh and mind will succeed against the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God is battling with your mind and is bringing every one of His resources to get you to see that you’re heading to violate the covenant relationship with the Lord.
Sin violates the covenant relationship and it breaks your fellowship with God.
When you’re convinced that a moment of pleasure is worth it, the Holy Spirit didn’t accept defeat. Here’s why?
Unless God requires your soul, He will return and give you 1 John chapter 1 and chapter 2:1-6.
The Holy Spirit wants to teach you how to gain victory over sin so you struggle with sin no more.
The struggle happens even after you have learned how to escape when the Holy Spirit teaches you. but you’ve learned to quickly respond to the Holy Spirit, as opposed to ignoring Him.
1 Corinthians 10:12-13 is very clear.
“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
In order to give in to sexual struggles, you have to convince yourself that the benefits outweigh the risks.
But what is the true risk?
Falling into sin. You see, Romans 6:23 is the payment.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
When we believe we could get away with it, we’re not thinking about the wages. That’s how the pleasures of sin blind our minds. We give in because we’ve convinced ourselves that our salvation sealed us in such a way, that we practice unrighteousness with impunity.
We guarantee that while a person sins, there’s a 100% certainty that everyone looks over their shoulder.
Can you say with 100% certainty, that you got away with it? That God will not bring a charge against you? That’s God will “wink” at it?
The 10 Commandments is the “knowledge of sin.”
The only way to get 100% certainty is trusting in the shed blood of Jesus and your repentance.
But there’s also the willingness to depart from iniquity. Not continue to participate in it after repentance from dead works and faith towards God. Then living a sanctified life for the rest of your days.
What makes a Christian a Christian?
A clear departure from sin. But you can’t do this on your own, according to Ephesians 2:8-10 and Titus 3:5.
The absolute truth that you’ve been born again is a clear departure from sin, and obedience to the commandments of Jesus according to Matthew 7:21-29 and James 1:22-27.
In 1 John 3, we see that believers need to walk in this.
1 John 3:4-9 (NKJV)
“Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.
Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.“
When we see difficult passages like this that require more of us, it’s because we allow our struggles to talk us out of obedience to difficult passages that require more of us.
We easily surrender to the impossibility of this passage. But how come we say regularly that “with God all things are possible,” but we put a disclaimer on 1 John 3?
Is it possible to be born of GOD, and not sin?
Look at Proverbs 4:23 and 1 John 5:18-19.
The problem is what we allow and meditate on. We never focus on what the Lord requires of us that would cost us.
The other side is that we focus too much on our ability to produce without the help of the Lord. We do it with our own strength and power and in moments of weakness, we give in to our struggles.
Jesus said in John 15:5, “….without Me you can do nothing.”
The Holy Spirit gives us the grace that we need to run to the Savior and to His Word to overcome and have victory over our minds and flesh.
Self discipline is the ability of the believer to rely on the help of the Holy Spirit to control the flesh and mind.
Galatians 5:22-26 (NKJV)
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”
1 Corinthians 9:27 (NKJV)
“But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.”
When we work together with the Holy Spirit, the Lord will show us what we need to look for, listen to the Holy Spirit’s warning, and obey the Holy Spirit every time. When we choose to listen to the Holy Spirit every time, it’s possible not to sin.
But you have to be willing to listen to the Holy Spirit EVERY TIME.
James 1:14-15 (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.“
Adultery and fornication happens in the houses of worship because believers walk away from the Lord, remove their armor, and suppress the truth in unrighteousness.
This cuts to the chase.
A variety of reasons are contemplated.
When I was in the world of porn, I used a number of excuses to justify it.
Sometimes, a person doesn’t know how wounded they are. Or, they just love the pleasures associated with sexual immorality. You don’t have to have something wrong with you to engage in sexual immorality.
The results is death as explained in the Scripture mentioned above.
Sexual sins could be used as medicinal properties to make a person feel good.
Dr. Archibald Hart shared that sex is used as a “pick me up,” or to “reward” themselves for a job well done.
Just because sexual immorality is used as a pick me up when you’re depressed, it doesn’t excuse it. Sin will be judged unless repented of. Also, it doesn’t prevent the consequential reactions.
Two lives have been joined outside of holy matrimony between one man and one woman. As an example to the world, believers are held to the standard of the Word of God.
When we deliberately fail the standard, the world will accuse the Lord and place the blame on the Lord and the Word as the problem. The Lord holds us all accountable and our death seals our fate.
But when you’re single, divorced, or you’re a widow or widower, loneliness sets in and a person looks for companionship. Some look for one night stands with multiple partners. Others look for established or experienced males or females (established meaning married).
Predation takes place with males and females.
But the place where it all begins is lust.
The eyes and the minds of people.
At anytime, the person could be aroused and then engage in targeting the person.
Attraction through seductive means.
They’ll continue to put themselves in the right place for the attraction to work. It’s like fishing. If the fish isn’t biting, they’ll go elsewhere.
But according to, I believe H.B. London, or another man of God, HALT.
When you’re HUNGRY ANGRY LONELY OR TIRED, you need to stop before you cross the line.
Usually, when males are looking for sexual connections, they’re aroused by who comes through the door. When women are looking for sexual connections, they dress provocatively, or they’re very flirty.
But lurking underneath these things is the ones that are hungry, angry, lonely, and tired.
When the target is acquired, all of the normal connections that usually happen in marriage happens in sin. It’s natural for courting, that leads to engagement or contemplation of marriage (without sex), and then marriage, and then sex.
But as believers, we must refrain from turning ourselves into a house of prostitution.
Finally, Paul gave us the solution regarding sexual immorality in 1 Corinthians 7.
When it comes to selection of males and females, 2 Corinthians 6:14 is the standard for believers.
But if a believer finds and unbeliever, Paul gives his personal advice that could be considered.
1 Corinthians 7:12-16 (NKJV Strong’s)
“But to the rest I, not the Lord, say: If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is willing to live with him, let him not divorce her. And a woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him.
For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy.
But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But God has called us to peace. For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?”
Please note that the hypothetical that Paul shares gives no indication that a believing person sought an unbeliever. I won’t get into the line by line teaching of this passage, but it appears that they were already together.
I would err on the fact that it’s best to find believers that are compatible spiritually, and mentally. The sex part is common. It’s the spiritual and mental compatibility that will always be the issue.
As Amos 3:3 tells us “How can two walk together except they be agreed.”
So folks, adultery and fornication could be avoided by living for the Lord first, never surrender to satan by falling into temptation, keeping your heart with all diligence, keeping the armor of God on, and filling your heart with God’s Word.
Talk and pray with your strong saints and avoid places and things with sexual content.
1 Corinthians 7:1-2 (NKJV Strong’s)
“Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me:
It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.”
In many of our houses of worship, the flames are rising. We all know that single, divorced, and widowed people are flocking to the church. But many of them are burning with sexual passion.
1 Corinthians 7:8-9 (NKJV Strong’s)
“But I say to the unmarried and to the widows: It is good for them if they remain even as I am; but if they cannot exercise self-control, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion.”
But many don’t cross the line of marriage. They settle with having a one night stand. Men engage prostitutes, pornography and self gratification, commonly called masturbation. The same is true with women.
If we try to list some reasons why this is, we will miss some things however, as believers, we must refrain from the traps of the world and maintain our relationship with the Lord.
We must do things His way because the Lord has our best interests in mind.
To “remain” as Paul in being celibate, isn’t the route of most people so men and women have to cross the line and get married.
Sin carries a consequential judgment. The child of God breaks fellowship with God to engage with one moment of pleasure, and it’s not worth it.
David, though he had five wives, still engaged in adultery. In 2nd Samuel chapters 11 and 12, David was supposed to be overseeing the battle but remain in the City of Jerusalem. We all know the story. He committed adultery, fathered a child, David had Uriah killed in battle to cover his sin, and the Lord exposed him.
The child died because to let him live, it would have been seen as the Lord giving an endorsement to David’s depraved actions, and the child would have been heir to the throne of David.
According to Leviticus 20:10 (NKJV Strong’s)
“The man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, he who commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress, shall surely be put to death.”
David and Bathsheba should have been judged, but the Lord in 2nd Samuel 12:13, spared David of death. Many will argue that the Lord violated His own law. No. The Lord shows mercy to whomever He wants to show mercy.
Adultery and fornication is a major problem in the houses of worship.
The easy solution is what Paul recommended.
When you can’t hold out, get married.
One male. One female.
According to the Scriptures, fornication is a clear violation of the Word of God.
Equally appalling in this show is when people profess to be believers in Christ and deliberately engage in what Christ and others in the Bible prohibits.
Jesus said in Matthew 15:19 (NKJV Strong’s) “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.”
In this show, the temptation for sexual immorality is very high.
The seductress and the lust-mongers are prepared to engage in sex before marriage.
This is nothing new.
People engage in premarital sex every day.
But when you see a professed believer on the show make a decision to no longer engage in fornication, and then share that belief with a person prepared to engage in fornication, according to the world, it’s a very unacceptable position.
In fact. You are judging them.
The rule of the world, when you watch this show and other like it, is to see two people engage in sex before marriage.
To refuse to follow the story line, expecting two persons to engage in premarital sex, is a violation of their progressive sexual liberality.
Fornication is the world’s gauge for marriage. They deceptively believe………good sex equal good marriage.
Sex before marriage is no guarantee that the marriage will be good.
They deceptively believe that love for each other is determined in the bedroom, before vows are exchanged.
It’s punishable by their law of sin and death if you don’t have sex before marriage, and they have a hell to put you in.
But it’s not just sexual immorality with one person.
We’re talking about multiple partners in this show.
I have to admit that I’ve never seen the show (and I won’t), but just the fact that in reading other articles about this show, it’s easy to conclude that multiple sexual partners is the standard.
But look at the harm fornication has caused.
Abortions. Sexually Transmitted Diseases.
We’ll never know the stories of some of these people that may have engaged in fornication. Whether or not a child may have been aborted. Or the sexually transmitted diseases acquired.
It’s quite possible that none of these things took place, but we’ll never know.
To take a stand against premarital sex reminds me of the peer pressure experienced when the question is asked whether you’re a virgin or not.
If you were a virgin, you were ridiculed.
Today, no matter your beliefs, no matter what the settled forever Scriptures declare, sexual immorality is covered by grace.
This is false.
Grace is not permission. 1 John 1:8-9 & 2:1-2 is not a revolving credit line of forgiveness.
Jesus didn’t die for our sins so that we could continue in sin (see Romans 6:1).
God is not demanding perfection. God demands obedience to Him and His Word.
His grace is sufficient and we’re to count in all joy when we fall into various trials and testings (see James 1:3 and 2 Corinthians 12:9).
The power and guilt of sin was removed by the Lord. As long as we walk in the Spirit, and according to the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus, we’re not condemned (see Romans 8:1-2).
Paul also said in Corinthians 11:31-32 (NKJV Strong’s) “If we judge ourselves, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.”
Sin enters our lives by our permission to sin, but before sin enters, we decide to discontinue obeying Him and His Word. That’s why 1 Corinthians 10:13 is there. The Lord gives us a way of escape and will not allow temptation be beyond what you’re able….so that we’re able to bear it.
Grace is God forgiving us even though we deserve His wrath. His mercy prevents what we rightfully deserve. God is swift in mercy, gracious and kind, but when we provoke Him, and falsely assume that He would forgive us, we run the risk of abusing His patience and long-suffering.
It seriously brings into question our repentance and status as adherents of Christ. Are we crucified? Are we saved? Are we true believers? Are we truly delivered and set free? Are we practitioners of righteousness or practitioners of sin? Do we have dual citizenship, a citizen of His kingdom while being a citizen of satan’s kingdom?
Could light fellowship with darkness? (see 2 Corinthians 6:14-18).
Is there sin in heaven? Is there holy people in hell?
And this is where this bachelorette that profess to believe that Jesus doesn’t mind is wrong.
The Scriptures gives us guidance and we have the power of choice to accept or reject the Scriptures. However, professed believers do not have the right to alter the Scriptures to fit their sinning lifestyle. This encourages other young believers that engage in fornication to do the same.
The Scriptures doesn’t give us license to sin and then gives anyone permission to violate the Scriptures.
Proverbs 30:5-6 (NKJV Strong’s) “Every word of God is pure;
He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.
Do not add to His words,
Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.”
We don’t get to alter the Word.
The Word when obeyed is given to change us. We don’t change the Word.
So if you’ve seen this episode, if you’re a true believer, you see the self deception. But also you see a twisting of the Scriptures.
When you’re involved in sexual immorality, and the Scriptures are brought to bear on them and others, some of you will say, “No harm, no foul.”
And there are others that agree with them.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Hebrews 13:4, and Revelation 21:8 stands against you.
You could read the article from Christian Post here
In my previous article, we know that sexually immoral women have lusting eyes for male pastors, but the opposite is just as true.
Sometimes it’s the combination of the two when sparks fly.
A number of things could be behind the motivation of a male pastor to commit adultery, or if he’s single, commit the sin of fornication.
But it always begins with lust in the heart.
All a male need is a firecracker to come into his mind. Or in his mind, he constantly fantasizes or sexually objecticize women, inside and outside the house of worship.
In the book, Betrayal of Trust, there’s two types of male pastors.
“Wanderers & Predators”
The wanderer strayed from his marriage and regrettably sinned against God, and violated his vows to his wife to remain faithful. He’s regretted the sin and returns to his wife, to remain faithful for the rest of the marriage.
Then there’s the predator. He searches for a vulnerable partner and usually he picks out vulnerable women that may be looking for male connections.
It’s not always the case though.
Some of them are emotionally unstable, and this, in and of itself, isn’t the only reason that they allow themselves to be duped by a male pastor, but it’s probably high on the list.
Like an animal predator that looks for the young or the weak, the male pastor does the same thing. He seeks out the immature women in the Word of God and smells the scent of hopelessness, unsure, insecure, always looking for support and direction, filled with despair, isn’t confident, is very dependent, and very unsuspecting.
He avoids the strong in faith women in the house of worship.
He uses flattering words, give small gifts, and gains the confidence of his target. As soon as trust is built, he takes things to the next level.
At first, his target will appear apprehensive and very cautious. She instinctively gives signals that this isn’t appropriate. But he’s done it before. Male pastor predators are patient, looking for that one moment of a break in her defenses.
But words are seeds, gestures are seeds.
She ponders these kinds of actions and as soon as he determines a crack in the armor, he makes his move.
His eyes makes contact, he makes subtle touches of the hand, the shoulder, the waist, the kiss on the cheek.
ALL THESE ADVANCES IS A SET UP AND IF YOU’RE NOT CAREFUL……..
Many vulnerable women made the mistake and drop their guard.
After it’s all said and done, a regrettable sin is committed.
He used you and things are different now.
But it never stops. It feels like you’re obligated because it goes from a one night stand to an ongoing immoral relationship that goes on for days, weeks, and months.
That feeling of obligation is a sexual tie, only validated by holy matrimony.
That feeling of obligation is an immoral invalid tie to that male pastor.
Genesis 2:24 (NKJV Strong’s) “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”
Notice what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 6:16-17 (NKJV Strong’s) “Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.”
So even if the pastor is married, the woman outside the marriage that engaged in sex with that pastor, established an illegal tie with that man.
When a woman expresses that they have “feelings” for that male pastor, when it’s solidified in the bedroom, the tie to him is immorally established.
This is where the woman must exercise caution and not be found in a place where a male pastor pursues an illegal immoral sexual relationship. Nothing good comes of this because sin is present.
Sin has consequences. And sin, in the end, leads to death.
If you’re about to be taken advantaged of by a male pastor, it’s best to seek the counsel of a wise, prayerful, seasoned in the Scriptures woman. Afterwards, it’s best to find another local assembly because if you remain there, he will make another advance.
It’s never a bad idea to SOUND THE ALARM.
Declare, in love and humility, what you know is the truth, and do that according to 1 Timothy 5:19-20.
If you seek to be slanderous, this is “sowing discord among the brethren.”
If you lie about it, all liars will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone” (see Revelation 21:8).
Sometimes, he will not take “no” for an answer.
He will do everything in his power to close the deal.
The devil operating in that immoral pastor is a smooth talker.
Don’t even tell him that you’re leaving the house of worship for another.
Just abruptly leave. There’s nothing in the Word that tells you that you have to stay when that male pastor made a pass at you. You know what’s next and there’s no sense in remaining in a place where a lot of people will get hurt.
Even when you’ve established good relations with other members of that house of worship, when a male pastor, or any male is making unwanted sexual advances to you, leaving is an option on the table that should not be suppressed.
Hebrews 13:4 and Revelation 21:8 is clear.
There’s no beautiful sunset.
If you’re single and waiting for a man to pop the question of matrimony, it’s worth the wait. If you’re married and your marriage has lost its spark, adultery with a pastor is not the answer.
The Scriptures is clear about holiness and personal holiness must be maintained on both sides of the pulpit.
Beware of the wolf’s eyes behind the pulpit.
“Be sober. Be vigilant.”
Sexual immorality abstinence.
Is Hollywood having a revival?
Well, Alyssa Milano is calling for a “sex strike” to protest the heart beat bill signed in Georgia and in other states in the United States.
The heart beat bill is simple.
If you detect a heart beat in the baby, you can’t have an abortion.
Of course there will be fights in the courts to challenge the Constitutionality of the law, but for now, it appears that the protest of “No Sex” works in the favor of anti abortionists.
Because it takes “two to tango.”
If a woman withholds sex from a man, apart from artificial conception, a woman can’t get pregnant.
So, no sex means, no fornication or adultery.
But let’s be real about this.
Most sexually immoral women won’t withhold sex.
Then you have prostitution which depends upon undisciplined, sexually immoral, stupid males to be seduced to spend money for sex.
Condoms are known to fail.
Sexually transmitted diseases, if everyone listens to Alyssa Milano, would decrease too.
Hospitals will not get any business of treating STDs.
Here’s another problem.
When prostitutes get pregnant, they (the pimp and the prostitute) depend upon Planned Parenthood and other lesser known abortion mills to take care of murdering the child and put the woman back on the street.
That is unless the prostitute take the RU486 pill to deliberately induce a miscarriage to kill the baby, or use other pregnancy prevention devices.
So those that will listen to Ms. Milano is clearly helping reduce child murder/sacrifice, STDs, and other maladies associated with abortion.
Please don’t think for one moment that I’m trying to change the course of their protest.
Biblical abstinence is the goal.
We all know that Alyssa Milano’s ploy is to gain attention to stop states from passing anti abortion laws.
You can read the story here
A politician will do anything for votes, but when you find out that he lives with his “girlfriend,” that is not his wife, it’s fornication.
John the Baptist spoke to Herod and Herod believed that John was a righteous man. Herod knew that John was right. Herod and his new wife, Herodias, were in an adulterous relationship. No doubt she was furious and steaming mad. She wanted to have John killed so Herod put John in prison (see Matthew 14:1-12).
I know there is price for speaking the Word of political power but we all know what this leads to. A suppression of the truth that endangers preachers everywhere. We know well the risks but we must remain obedience and avoid turning the other way. We must not refuse to point sin out to save our necks.
It’s not coincidence that sexual immorality is connected to this. So it is very easy for Cuomo to advocate for homosexuality when you are a practicing fornicator.
So there has been much said by misguided people that we “can’t legislate morality.”
Well, look at the world “legislating immorality” at will, and daring anyone to preach righteousness.
Well, Mr. Cuomo, the Bible is clear. You are living in sin. Repent.
You are legislating immorality. Repent.
You are attempting to silence the voice of God and His Bible. Repent.
“For we are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the power of God unto salvation.” Romans 1:16
If people want to come out of sin, you can’t stop them. Millions have turned away from this perversion. And the LGBT camp themselves will tell you that no one is born as a homosexual. This lie has been refuted by lesbians and homosexuals.
Homosexuality is a sin of choice not a flaw of creation.
Sin came by the devil through man. Original sin did not come by or through God.
Therefore, even if you and other misguided politicians continue to legislate immorality, you can’t stop God and His Word. In fact, your own conscience is filled with the knowledge of God and it’s inescapable.
You are powerless to erase God from your mind. Even in hell, should you not repent, your very soul will remember God and His Word forever. Except it will be powerless to save, deliver, or set you free. The Lord is firmly Lord over all and there is nothing that you can do to stop it.
You can legislate to silence our voices but as long as we have breath, you and all others will hear the unadulterated Word of God. This Word will be heard in all eternity, forever, and there is nothing that you can do to stop it.
You know full well that God is against the sin of homosexuality, adultery, fornication, bisexuality, bestiality, pornography, and masturbation. Your own conscience has already judged you. And you are already condemned (see John 3:17-36) and the wrath of God abides on you and others.
The only thing that is left is the formality of the eternal sentence issued by the Judge of all the earth.
And that goes for you to, Mr. Christie.
The story about the governor of NY could be read here.
“Finally, Zika reminds us that over and over nature is a formidable enemy,” he said. “We wish we knew more we wish we could do more. We know this is anxiety provoking for pregnant women and their families.”
Notice the phrase “nature is a formidable enemy.”
This is a direct source reporting on the new epidemic that is transmitted sexually.
While nature plays a role in infecting certain people around the world, we see that it cannot stop humans from engaging in illegal sex called adultery and fornication.
Now we are reminded that this disease can affect married couples that never engaged in illegal sex.
So what’s the point?
The point is simple. We know that people engage in homosexuality, bisexuality, fornication and adultery.
It’s a reminder that we need to abstain from sin.
It is also a reminder that these are the last days as the Lord Jesus told us.
Matthew 24:7-8 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
Note Strong’s Concordance definition of the word “pestilence.”
g3061. λοιμός loimos; of uncertain affinity; a plague (literally, the disease, or figuratively, a pest):— pestilence (- t).
AV (3)- pestilence 2, pestilent 1;
pestilence a pestilent fellow, pest, plague
So if there is any question about the last days, look no further. Many more may be headed this way but it is a sign of the end times before the coming of the Lord.
As a note, earthquakes have occurred in Oklahoma on a regular basis. Japan has had an eruption recently. Nations are rising against nations. Just look at the on going battle in Syria, Ukraine, Iraq, and other places. Famine is still an issue around the world.
Jesus said that “All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
The additional definition of sorrows is as follows……“the pain of childbirth, travail pain, birth pangs intolerable anguish, in reference to the dire calamities precede the advent of the Messiah.”
Like a woman that is about to give birth, these signs are upon us. Whether they are occurring rapidly or with varying intensity, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is that it is happening just like the Lord said.
That’s what we should be paying attention to. Unmistakeable, undeniable signs that point to the coming of the Lord.
So if you are still caught in the web of illegal sexual activity, Revelation 21:8, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Hebrews 13:4, and Matthew 15:18-19 is looking at all those that run the stop sign of God’s Word.
This was posted on my FB timeline.
There was a man in a certain country that solicited the services of a prostitute. It would be his last sex sin. The paramedics had to place his dead corpse on a gurney with the living prostitute on top.
Evidently, his penis enlarged itself in her vagina and possibly rigor mortis set in where she couldn’t disconnect from intercourse. Or possibly, the man took viagra and blood settle in his penis, who knows?
But according to Proverbs 7, the prostitute, as an immoral woman, is the staircase, descending into the “chambers of death.”
Chambers is defined as an “apartment.”
This is where we get “prison cells” from.
This man committed adultery or fornication, died in bed, and went directly to his eternal “prison cell.”
Such a story resonates. But people will not listen. They will continue to seek pleasures rather than seeking God.

A NEW STD IS AMONG US
MG it’s called.
Actually, according to the report, the disease has been around since the 1980’s and is curable. It’s one of the “pests” of sex that people wish would not happen.
Whenever a report on STDs comes out, it it clear that more people are infected and that they anticipate that more infections will be reported.
The one thing that I read is that they’ve tested 200 teens that were not sexually active and found that they all tested NEGATIVE for the disease.
At the end of the report, they stressed condoms.
Wait a minute……
Did anyone catch this?
If you are not sexually active, it means that you have no need for condoms, which proves one thing.
Psalm 107:17 says “Fools! Because of their transgressions and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.”
You may be insulted but according to Psalm 107:17, people are still acting like a fool. According to the Lord God in Genesis chapter 2, sex is reserved for married people, one man and one woman. Sexually transmitted diseases are designed to reinforce what God ordained.
When there is sex outside of this God ordained institution it carries a carries a consequential judgment. A penalty.
Should people die in their sins, Revelation 21:8 tells us that the “sexually immoral” will be cast into the lake which burns with fire and brimstone forever.
Remember. God created us in His image. His highest attribute is “HOLY.”
Sin is opposite of righteousness, holiness, and purity.
Since God created us, He makes the rules. When man violates His rules, there is a moral penalty applied.
Just like when we are driving and the cop or trooper pulls us over for speeding or other traffic violations, we are assessed a penalty.
Just like when we commit a crime, we are arrested, tried in court, and should we be found guilty, we do time in prison.
Did you just see the difference?
Illegal sex is like a traffic violation and the STD was the penalty.
The crime of an unrepentant life demands eternal prison time.
Many will say that this is not fair, that we should be able to do as we please.
Revelation 4:11 “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
God placed within this life all of the benefits of life provide that we follow what He said. When we do something apart from what He said, God demands justice. Remember, He is holy, righteous, full of compassion, love, mercy, and truth.
If God didn’t love us, He would never give us a chance.
In truth, and because He is holy and just, the Lord God judges us.
Without this eternal righteous standard, there wouldn’t be an incentive to repent, receive salvation, and obey His Word to live holy. The fact that the Lord gives us a chance to repent tells us that this is MORE THAN FAIR.
Especially in light of the fact that the Father demonstrated His love for us by sending His Son to die for our sins to completely pay our debt.
Notice Romans 5:8-9. “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.”
Many people have failed. This author included, but because of His mercy and compassion, He gives us all another chance, not a second chance because every one of us blew away that second chance.
We accept by grace through faith the gift of salvation to avoid the wrath of God. The STD is not the wrath of God. Should you die without Christ, hell, and then the lake which burns with fire and brimstone is the eternal wrath of God.
Believe me when I tell you, the tribulation period is also the wrath of God, poured out on the earth, but it pales in comparison to the eternal wrath of God for which there will be no relief.
Remember. God created us and He can do justly as He wishes.
Perhaps you are reading this and wonder if the Lord would forgive you for continuously blowing it. As the late David Wilkerson said, “sin and confess, sin and confess.”
That’s a merry go round that we need to stop. The constant cycle of guilt and remorse must come to a halt. God knows what’s best for us.
If we want sex, we must get married first.
Many want the benefits and gifts of marriage without actually getting married. That’s not how it works and you know it. Sex outside of marriage is destructive. It’s dangerous. It carries more woe for man and woman than imagined. Worse of all, it keeps you in bondage to sin as it’s slave.
Ask one slave if he or she ever loved being a slave.
They will truthfully answer that they wished that they were free.
Jesus can make you free indeed after you come to the knowledge of the truth.
Do you want to be free?
It’s up to you. The Lord Jesus suffered the penalty for every man and was imprisoned in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights to appease the just and righteous demands of the Holy and Righteous God.
All the hard work was done by Jesus to free you. You get to do the easy part.
Repent and abstain for the rest of your life until you get married.
Sadly, a lot of people will not listen. The other sad thing is that people, including me, thought that when we would get married that all of the sexual triggers, desires, urges and impulses would be satisfied.
To be able to have sex all of the time is a fantasy. We are still permitted to have sex with our married opposite sexed partner, but there’s a lot of dynamics that must be factored.
Timing and making time for sex. Work. Children. Emotion state of each other. Financial well being, and other issues makes it very challenging to have sex. This is another reason why many married people engage in the extracurricular activity of masturbation.
You could be in the heat of the moment but your partner is sick, not at home, went to bed early, emotionally detached from you because of personal issues, and a host of other reasons.
Even masturbation is out of bounds because God designed sex to be shared between two married persons of the opposite sex. Which means the fruit of the Spirit called “self control” must be employed until you can come together to have sex.
So the rule still exists and there is nothing that you or anyone else could do about it. Congress, the president, and SCOTUS can’t legislate against God’s ordinance to draft and pass a law to stop STD’s from occurring.
The lie of “safe sex” will not help.
Safe sex is a myth. The only safe sex is married, one male, one female for life, or abstinence. Condoms circumvent the Word of God and you know it. This is called “suppress the truth in unrighteousness.”
In other words, they hold down the truth so that it would not try to convict them. But when the truth is released, man is powerless to stop the convicting power of the Holy Spirit in the Word of God.
And even if you use a condom, there is always the possibility of a failure, leakage, or other common missteps. Because of the desire for full satisfaction, condom-less unlawful sex.
Sex is for married couples of the opposite sex.
Sexual immorality carries a consequential penalty and an eternal penalty should people remain unrepentant. God offers forgiveness and healing when we repent and place our full faith and trust in the salvation provided through the sacrificial life, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
Anyway, you can read the article here about MG.
As I was street preaching in Brooklyn, NY with my agitation abolitionist sign from Abolish Human Abortion, a lady walked up to me and questioned me about the social responsibility of children. She was a social worker and obviously a supporter of murdering children.
It became apparent to me that since the line of fornication and or adultery were crossed, the next line to cross would be the advocating of murdering a child because a mother can’t pay for the child. Sadly, this is a common problem among our communities and in the house of worship.
We are not willing to admit that this is a problem because we are more concerned about looking good before the community. Not realizing that we are looking mighty bad before the eyes of the Lord.
When whoredom and whoremongering is in the church, it is clear that sanctification, holiness, and righteousness are least talked about subjects from the pastor; let alone lived out in clean lives before the Lord.
While we cannot take responsibility about the sexual immorality of our nation and neighborhoods, as a people that claim to know God, we have a responsibility to make sure that our own house is clean before God.
Let’s back this up.
Since a woman and a man can afford to have sex, it seems to me that they should have gotten married first to begin with.
Sadly, some men want to have the pleasure without the responsibility. Sadly, some women want to have the pleasure without ensuring that the man she is mating with will be around to support he child and the mother.
It’s another example of putting the cart before the horse.
Now, mind you that many women will argue about “my body.”
They will also argue about the fact that a man, the state (government), or the church doesn’t have the right to tell them about what to do with “their body.”
What they are saying is that no one, even God, doesn’t have authority over them.
This is anarchy. Sadly, Mr. I. B. Stupid will get in bed with them, get them pregnant, and then they will march down to an abortion house of murder to erase a life, to erase their sin. But because they do not see their adultery or fornication as sin, it is very easy to sacrifice a child.
There was a sign made by Mr. I. B. Stupid. It said “Abortion helps me not to pay child support.” Or words to the effect.
Automatically in the fool is his get out of child support card.
You see, lust demons will instruct fornicators on what to do should there be a pregnancy. From an article from EXMInistries, satanists involved in abortion demands a blood sacrifice. So an abortion doctor may very well be a satanist offering up your child to the devil as a blood sacrifice.
This is not surprising because that’s what the murder of 56 million babies are.
Blood sacrifices to satan.
satan hates the image of God and since the devil cannot kill God, he will murder people straight up.
John 8:44 is proof of this.
In the heat of a woman’s argument, the deception of “their body” would not be necessary in the first place had they not sinned before God in fornication or adultery. Many will say that it’s not about that. Well, beg to differ because it is. Every problem that is on earth is a spiritual problem that requires a spiritual solution.
The decision to sin is a spiritual decision.
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.”
That’s where the problem has always been. Pleasure has deceived them and they get caught in the trap. Instead of abstaining, they pursued the satisfaction to obtain pleasure. They call it a “mistake.” But calling it a mistake is like softening the blow of the fact that they have sinned before God. And they know it.
So caught with a child, they look to exterminate the child and everything is back to normal.
To have pleasure outside of the Word of God comes with a penalty.
You are pregnant. Now what are you gong to do?
Who is gong to support me? Who is going to help me?
There are many pregnancy crisis centers in the area that can help you keep your child. If you choose to put your child up for adoption, adoption is a better way than to face murder charges from the Judge of heaven. Even better, just refrain from the bedroom. Remember 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 that fornicators and adulterers will not inherit the kingdom of God. So those sins can be forgiven when you turn your heart over to the Lord in repentance, and put your total faith in the saving grace of God, through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Advocating sinning against God is not a position that any believer or pastor is to take because you would be violation of James 4:4. If you are already pregnant, and you are not married, or your male non supporter disappeared (coward), search for a crisis pregnancy center and take it from there. Search for family members that may be willing to help. Stop by a local true Christian church to seek help there.
To run to Planned Murderhood or any other abortion murder mill to kill a life because of sin is worse.
