Since there has been a good head of steam to legitimize the sin of homosexuality, the foundation was laid years ago when adultery and fornication became a regular occurrence on the job, in church, and in other places.
The continued erosion of righteousness, loss of morals, and a clear disregard for the Word of God undoubtedly was a plan of the devil long ago.
Here is a Scripture to consider.
2 Peter 3:1-4 says “Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers (mockers) will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge…” (Proverbs 1:7a)
As a little child, I would remember that when dad or mom would tell us to behave and then walk out the door, if we misbehaved, we would be in big trouble.
Today it’s no different.
The Lord Jesus went back to heaven to be seated at the right hand of God, but He said He would be coming back.
Well, just like what the Spirit of God said through Peter, many mocked the coming of the Lord. They are walking according to their own lusts. They all say, “Nothing’s changed. We might as well keep on doing what we were doing all along.”
Only, it’s gotten worse.
In the blink of an eye, homosexuality is gripping the nation. The next thing on the horizon is the forcing of the church to accept homosexuality. Talk about forcing something down someone’s throat?
Sexual immorality is one of the signs of the end times.
Jesus alluded to this in Luke 17:26-30 “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”
In Noah’s day, the people’s imaginations were only evil continually. In Lot’s day, perversion called homosexuality permeated the region. In both instances, destruction came.
The push is on to legalize and normalize homosexuality in this nation. In other parts of the world, we see that the sin of homosexuality is normalized. But at a great price. Proponents of the sin of homosexuality hate the Scriptures.
In the Word of God is God’s mind about the sin of homosexuality.
The sin of homosexuality is “an abomination.” Leviticus 18:22.
In the book of Romans, chapter one, those that practice the sin of homosexuality receive “…in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.” Romans 1:27.
As I have said previously, proponents of homosexuality can make all the laws they want to legalize homosexual marriage, but they cannot write laws to stop the “penalty of their error which was due.”
In other words, they cannot stop diseases from manifesting in their bodies should they insist on continuing in sexual sins.
The two eras of time, Noah and Lot, is a clear sign that we are in the last days and that the coming of the Lord is nearer than when we first believed.
Jesus said, “Because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12.
1 John 3:4, “Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.”
The fool-safe proof that the sin of homosexuality is lawlessness is the manifestation of sexually transmitted diseases.
Because people do not believe the Word of God, the diseases that manifest ought to be deterrence enough. However, we see that they refuse the admonition and prohibition of the Scriptures, and the disease manifests. “The penalty of their error which was due.”
Many people are inflicted with HIV/AIDS and other STDs, some as a direct involvement in the sin of homosexuality, others as a result of “collateral damage.”
The suffering continues but it is a clear sign that the Lord Jesus in on His way to the earth and that these are the last days.
It is only through the love expressed by the Father that we can have eternal life.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Think about it.
How much time do you have left on earth? Whether the coming of the Lord, or your death? Whichever comes first.
The last days is happening and there is nothing that you could do to stop it. The real question is this.
Will you be in Christ or will you suffer the eternal penalty unnecessarily?
It’s up to you.
GCMWatch has put out a very powerful and compelling article to help us to know what is going on with the LGBT community.
One of the things that the Lord Jesus said that we must do is “watch and pray lest we fall into temptation.”
Sin’s presence is everywhere and we must guard ourselves against every single moment of temptation until Jesus comes or should He tarry, we close our eyes to this life. The key element is the fact that people that claim to be professed believers are becoming more sympathetic to the sins of the world than taking a stand for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The deliberate version of correctly confronting sin by the unapologetic preaching and teaching the Word of God is avoided because to confront mean spirits and mean spirited people is a very dangerous business. When the Lord Jesus died on the cross, He did it to forever destroy sin. The Father will hold no one guiltless unless sinners repent of sin, renounce the lordship of satan, declare the Lordship of Jesus, and walk in obedience to the teachings of Jesus in righteousness and true holiness.
The Lord will hold no professed believer guiltless for failing in fear to stand in the truth, that cower in fear to live the truth, and compromise the truth for fear of reprisal from satan and his cohorts of LGBT sinners. See Revelation 21:8.
The winds of compromise is evident.
Listen to Paul by the Holy Spirit in Ephesians 4:14.
“that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,”
The “feel good, non confrontational motivating preachers” are more popular than ever.
It’s almost as if to anger people about their sins is the third rail that must be avoided.
People will die and go to hell because we have polluted the gospel of Jesus Christ according to Galatians chapter 1.
Motivational preachers have perverted the truth and is preaching an accursed gospel.
An elderly man told me that I was a great motivational speaker. I said to him, “Respectfully, sir, I was not called to be a motivational speaker. God called me to preach.” I know that he was trying to flatter and compliment me but when it comes to the preaching of the legitimate gospel of Jesus Christ, we cannot motivate, coach, coerce, or manipulate people. We must preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and people have to make a decision to live what Jesus preached or die and because of the justice of God, the practitioners of lawlessness must depart from the Holy Lord in eternal condemnation forever.
Motivational speakers, coaches, those that coerce, and manipulate people while failing to preach the gospel will face Jesus.
Romans 14:11-12 says, “
For it is written:
“As I live, says the Lord, Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.” So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.”
The homosexual agenda is clear and this did not catch God by surprise.
Please click the link here to understand what we must do from this point on.
We must stand our ground regardless of the winds that blow. This is not the time to walk in deception. This is the time to stand and fight the good fight of faith.
Since terrorism hit the United States in 1996 (American Embassies in Africa, in 2000 with the USS Cole Incident, and in 2001 with the World Trade Center and the Pentagon), certain watch groups were used by the FBI to fine tune its aggressive stance to find out who is connected to any sort of terrorism.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, founded in 1971, is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization used in civil rights law regarding hate groups, racism, and civil rights. Morris Dees and Joseph J. Levin Jr. founded SPLC as a civil rights law firm in Montgomery, AL and Julian Bond later came and served as president from 1971 to 1979.
Now, it is used by LGBT to chase after those that appear to hate homosexuals. The FBI would use their data to compile a list and the rest is history.
Sources say that now the FBI will only provide links to “resources within the federal government.”
Evidently, SPLC is not within the federal government simply (but not limited to) because of its………….501(c)(3) status as a non profit organization……..and yes………most “charitable organizations,” church or otherwise, also falls under this category.
But this is not the reason the FBI severed ties.
The SPLC was just a puppet organization, used by LGBT to destroy conservative Christian voices and organization that speak up against the sin of homosexuality.
Since the elite LGBT people concocted the polluted ties of homosexuality as a “civl right,” SPLC was able to have its website accessed by the FBI just to attack Christian organizations. The FBI would provide SPLC’s link.
Not any more!
According to sources, SPLC wasn’t told by the FBI that this was coming.
The FBI did what most people do best when you don’t need an organization that has potentially disturbing trends, actions, and God knows what else.
It is a major ground shaking blow to SPLC and LGBT because people that access this site from the FBI webpage, perhaps, can no longer assume that the FBI and the SPLC is connected in any way.
But here is something else that is interesting…..could it be that the SPLC may come under FBI investigations for hate crimes itself?
As with anything, if a crime is committed, it should go through the proper channels.
When it comes to civil litigation, this is a whole new ball game for SPLC.
Is it possible that the playing field that we once knew to be level is slowly returning to………..level?
The agenda continues though.
LGBT has a totalitarian agenda. At first, they thought that they would have the run of the house as if they were the new federal government. However, we are seeing that the Obama administration has failed to achieve its goals, hence the elite LGBT has lost momentum.
With the 2016 elections and the mid term elections coming, the landscape is definitely changing.
The DOJ, under Eric Holder is complicit in destroying DOMA and other laws that protected marriage between one man and one woman.
There is a good chance that the Senate will return to Republican majority. While we must never hold our breath with politics, we must also be aware that the laws of this land were moral laws. There’s been such a concentrated effort to undermine the moral of this nation that the FBI had forgotten its law enforcement mission to be independent of rogue organizations searching for ways to disturb and disrupt the moral fabric of the American way of life.
Slowly, we have become one nation without God. Divisible. With bondage and tyranny for all.
Could this severance be an indication that the grace of God is giving America time to repent and fully come back to God?
Could it be that America is getting the message to return to the Lord?
At the top of the list of questions, could it be that the people that profess to know the Lord is finally getting it?
Only time will tell.

The sad thing about militant LGBT people is that when the truth about ex-homosexuals come, they are quick to deny that change is possible. The truth always existed and they know it.
The fear of truth is that they must abandon the lie. To be in complete denial is just one of a few aspects of blindness that exist in their lives. It does little use to ridicule or make fun of their blindness because of the fact that this is exactly what the devil wants.
To blind the minds of those that do not believe.
When the light of the glorious gospel, which is the image of Christ shines to them, they will either desist in lying or continue in darkness and stay with the lie that men and women that came out of the sin of homosexuality really were drawn by the power of God to come out of sin and live godly, and in holiness unto The Lord.
This article chronicles (link provided below) just a few ex homosexuals that were delivered by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Just taking a look at these beautiful people indicates that within every person is the innate desire to be real. To identify themselves with God. It takes the power of God to deliver a person, but it takes accepting the grace of God to pull out of the sin of homosexuality, or any sexual sins for that matter.
After the new birth a beautiful person emerges.
Alive unto God, free from sin, walking in total victory, and living in holiness.
All for God’s glory.
The LGBT community is still a minority with a very vocal argument, however, just because you are loud, it doesn’t make the sin you proudly stand for any more right than running red lights.
God is still The Lord and He still calls the sin of homosexuality, “an abomination.”
There is no getting around it.
Yet, in the face of HIV/AIDS and associated STD’s, LGBT still believes that the sin of homosexuality is a good and noble lifestyle. There is nothing noble about dying from HIV/AIDS when you had a choice to stop living in sin.
Homosexuality is a choice. Not a disease, and it is not a genetic malfunction caused by God. It is very easy to lay blame on God when a person doesn’t want to assume responsibility for their actions.
The prophet Isaiah said,
“Surely you have things turned around! Shall the potter be esteemed as the clay; for shall the thing made say of him who made it, “He did not make me”? Or shall the thing formed say of him who formed it, “He has no understanding.”
Sin is disobedience to the known will of God. This is the reason why death is here in the first place. When we accept this fact, then we can repent and be saved from eternal separation in hell from the presence of The Lord forever.
However, many will refuse the gracious offer of salvation and die in their sins.
There is coming a day when one must perish.
Physical death could happen at any time. No one has the power to retain his spirit as the book of Ecclesiastes tells us. No one has power over the day of death. No one. Yet, even with this knowledge, people will still go to the pit in complete denial about the power of God to save.
Even in their torment, they will say, “I still don’t believe this.”
Death is inevitable. So far, sinners, children of God, Wayne Besen, and Dan Savage do not have a way to stop death. There is no escaping it. However, when it comes to lifestyle choices, death by HIV/AIDS is avoidable. When it comes to sin, it’s all about choices.
So when you see an article like this, it is clear that the people that were delivered by the power of God recognized the mercy, grace, and loving forgiveness of God.
People like Wayne Besen and another person named Dan Savage are driven with perverted passion to attack and destroy the truth any way they can just to preserve the sin of homosexuality. Blinded by rage and a deliberate misunderstanding of the intent of the gospel, they are deliberately used by the devil himself to attempt to destroy the validity of the power of the gospel.
It is sad to be used by the same individual that is headed to the same place.
We all know that the power of God is stronger than any man and that they “can do nothing against the truth but for the truth” (see 2 Corinthians 13:8).
These incredible people have taken a stand to refute the lie that change is not possible.
LGBT will continue to plaster their lies but one thing is certain.
They can do nothing against the truth.
Take a look at this article.
GCMWatch and EXMinistries, as always, is front and center on this issue.
As you know Jason Collins announced his coming out of the locker room, excuse me……”closet” with his homosexual sin.
Here are their links to this breaking story about Chris Broussard’s stand on the sin of homosexuality. Chris’ stand seemed spontaneous, with holy passion, deliberately inspired by the Holy Spirit, and without rehearsal.
When you make and take a deliberate, intentional stand against the sin of homosexuality, and do it on international TV, you will catch it for doing it.
This was a “well done, good and faithful servant” moment.
In the GCMWatch piece that shared the second prepared response by Chris’, there seems to be a capitulation.
However, this tactic is known to happen against prisoners of war where you are forced to read propaganda in order to soften or redirect the bold testimony of Chris. As with all the heroes of faith, we need to pray for him that God would protect him and his family.
In the EXMinistries piece, the very pictures of Collins cross dressing while looking huh…..GQ is what LGBT loves. As cross dressers, it is just another form of homosexuality. Transgender men are nothing more than physically rearranged men surgically adjusted to appear as a woman. It will be shocking and stunning that should a man die in a woman’s body, what will they be resurrected as?
The answer is found in Matthew 19:4-5. In the beginning, He made them male and female. To change out of the flesh of man into the flesh of woman, the Lord will resurrect you to the resurrection of the condemned in the gender you were born with. Not in the gender you wish to have.
Anyway, we see that we need to speak without mincing words of the Word of God in the face of persecution without fail or fear.
Stepping into the firefight with LGBT is the kind of fighting that the Body of Christ is sorely lacking. There is no courage these days to take on the Goliath of our times. Sexual immorality. Like Saul, we sit in a tent on the other side of the valley, way on the other side so that we won’t hear the taunting of Goliath. We got armor for others to wear but we refuse to put on our own and go after that uncircumcised Philistine.
As the days progress, there will be fewer voices that will be willing to jump out of the foxhole and use their weapon. Battles are not won in the foxhole. They are won in the valley of the shadow of death.
There was never a safe place to speak the truth and sooner or later, the remaining remnant will be out in the open air, waging war like the gladiator days of old. Fearless. Courageous. Guts. Strength. Yup, just the way the Lord Jesus fought and won.
The LGBT community was waiting for this day to come. They are using every means of the media to push their wicked, perverted agenda. They are pushing in for a major assault. It seems that LGBT has returned to the tactics of battling the states for marriage equality.
There seems to be a strong indication that the SCOTUS will not rule favorably for marriage equality. It was expected that Proposition 8 be ruled unconstitutional and that certain parts of DOMA would be struck down to pave the way for homosexuals to marry and be recognized as regular married couples.
That’s why we are seeing some things happening behind the scenes.
How many of you know that the Lord is at work and that the prayers of the righteous avails much?
Every time you see something like this, it is a serious pursuit to legitimize the sin of homosexuality, but the prayers of the saints are at work in the earth and the God that hears our holiness in our prayers will never let any evil agenda overcome the church.
There are more announcements that will shock and surprise some. Just be at rest and be ready to stand for the testimony of Jesus. This is not R and R time. Rest is when we have finished the course and the race that is set before us. Let us, as Paul said, strive lawfully to receive the crown that fades not away. For the time is short, and the day is at hand. As James said, the Lord is standing in the door.
This is not the time to hold your testimony. Be ready to hold your head up and speak the Word of the Lord as instructed by the Holy Spirit. For the Lord will put His Word in your mouth, and you are charged to speak, what thus says the Lord. Only be courageous. Be bold and be strong, for the Lord your God is with you.
Finally, it was disheartening to see the POTUS and the FLOTUS be used like pawns to forward the evil, wicked agenda of LGBT and Planned Abortionhood. This is unbecoming of African Americans to be allowed at the table of power and be used to forward an agenda that further erode the African American community. The legacy of this president will be that he supported the systematic killing and destruction of his own race. Through the sin of homosexuality and abortion, the beast is being fed.
So if you are not appalled or disturbed that something could have been done to stop the genocide, look no further than yourself that voted him in office. You are just as culpable. Guilty by reason of association. Especially those that profess to know the Lord. You bear the greater sin because you could have seen this coming and not vote in such a way, that more lives are lost through this continuation of the ministry of death and destruction propagated by the puppet masters of LGBT and Planned Abortionhood.
Be sure that the Lord Jesus will not mince words for you when you stand there to render an account.
It is amazing how America and the other nations have decided to go against the Word of God. You have the Queen of England making a declaration for marriage equality and soon, the SCOTUS will decide on Proposition 8. In this YouTube presentation, something caught my eye as I was driving.
If you’ve seen this YouTube video, pass it along. If not, take a look and then pass it along.
A simple bumper sticker. Click this link and take a look……
The real reason for marriage equality is to legitimize the sin of homosexuality. It is important for those that truly believe in the Lord and His Word to never be deceived by those that are sadly deceived. Sin is never on equal footing with righteousness. Just like night and day cannot be on equal footing.
Pay attention to what the Lord said in John 11:9 and 10…
“Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.”
The Bible tells us that….“All things were made by Him and without Him was not anything made that was made.”
So the Lord Jesus made 12 hours of daylight. Which means that there is twelve hours of darkness. The point is a figure of speech. As long as we are in this world, the sun will give light to the earth for twelve hours and the world revolves around the sun, the other side of the earth will experience darkness.
This means that, spiritually speaking, there is a time when darkness will come but for a limited time.
We all know what the Bible says about marriage. This will never change no matter what laws permitting the sin of homosexuality are decreed and passed. No matter which way the Supreme Court goes, the Word of God stands true as God’s wisdom to man. The moment man departs from the wisdom of God, consequential judgment will always fall.
We all know that within the confines and boundaries of marriage, STDs cannot happen. For a sexually transmitted disease to be contracted, a person must engage in sex outside of marriage.
This is called adultery. When a person engages in sex before marriage, it is called fornication.
Both of these sins carry a consequential judgment.
When it comes to the sin of homosexuality, the consequential judgment is STDs, including HIV/AIDS.
The sad thing about LGBT is that they continue to thumb their noses at the wisdom of God.
I am quite sure that you have noted the comments under my YouTube video. It amazes me that people involved in the sin of homosexuality believe that we are forcing something upon them. To force something on people means that a person has no choice in the matter. It was the person’s choice to view the video. This person didn’t have to view my video. Yet, this person did.
On the other hand, we have LGBT forcing upon the righteous the sin of homosexuality.
By establishing laws and decrees that homosexuals be recognized as legal couples. LGBT is constantly pushing to silence the preaching of the Word of God so that their sin could go unchecked, however, the Lord is constantly raising up voices to speak the Word of God fearlessly, regardless of the cost. If LGBT is pushing to pass laws to have the sin of homosexuality accepted without righteous opposition, and should they be successful, then they would be happy.
However, we know that this will not happen.
Even should homosexuals be successful, they will never be truly happy so long as the light is in the world. The light of the Word of God brings conviction to sin that’s done in darkness.
The Lord Jesus told the people to be the light of the world, a city set on a hill that could not be hidden. We are to be the light of the world and not hide our light under a table. We are to put our light in top of the table so that everyone that comes into your room can see. If you decide that you want to sit in a dark room, it is up to you. However, when someone has light, it is instinctive for a person to walk out of a dark room to find a room where the light is.
So it is with sin. When you are ready to come out of sin, the room that has the light of the true Word of God is where you should go. Please note that no one is forcing you to come to the light. No one is making you receive the light. You can sit in darkness all you want. It is your choice.
We know that should LGBT be successful, the people of God will enter into an era of time when what we say will be severely censored and declared as hate speech.
Be it known to all that regardless of what laws are passed, I have a responsibility before God to stand and preach the truth regardless of the cost to me. For God I live and for God I die. Besides, on the day that the Lord called me to preach, I didn’t hear your voice.
Marriage equality of the world is unequal with the Word of God.
The point is not to make you mad but to share the truth of the Word of God.
Get mad, upset, frustrated, agitated, because the reasoning of LGBT is discombobulated. One of the things that we know is that LGBT loves to blow smoke. To get the world to believe that what they are doing is without consequences. All you have to do is look to the Center Of Disease And Control And Prevention, look at the statistics regarding homosexuality and lesbianism, and you will get a reminder of the cost associated with all sexual sins.
Nonetheless, the will of God has stood the test of time and any measure to soften the fact that sexual sins exact a penalty is wishful thinking on the part of the agenda drivers of LGBT.
You can throw the world’s money into AIDS awareness and prevention, as notable a cause it is, but look at the cost to keep sin alive? Look at the cost to the medical world, that’s in the trillions of dollars? With the highest cost that can never be paid by sinful human blood. A human life that needlessly enters the den of death by making a decision to sin against God and His Word.
Yet, the one Person that shed His blood to redeem man from sin is always there to help you to abstain from all sexual sins and to redeem you from sin once you completely yield to Him for salvation. It’s your choice. You can either continue in sin, or you can stop. It is entirely up to you.
But know this…..no matter what man does to legalize the sin of homosexuality, the consequences can never be legislated away.
Oh, heaven NO!!!!
No relapse on my part. Not on your life because we are getting too close to the finale. I know that’s it’s been a while since my last blog. However, this is not a report of me backsliding kind of blog.
The trumpet will sound and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we that are alive and remain will be caught up together in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
To stay holy is my one goal. I do not plan to be fulfilling the lust of the flesh and satisfying myself when Jesus comes.
Some of you may recall the 10 virgins. Five were wise. Five were foolish. When the bridegroom came, it was time for them to go to the wedding. The five wise had enough oil for the journey in the night and the five foolish did not. The five foolish asked the five wise to spare what they had, and the wise ones declined.
The five wise told them to go and buy for themselves. So they went out to buy oil for themselves, and they found some, but by the time they got to the door, it was shut.
They knocked on the door and the bridegroom did not let them in.
It was too late.
There are many incentives to take advantage of to quit sexual immorality, however, very few will incorporate such incentives.
The pleasures of self gratification can be overwhelming because of the rewards it offers. However, the reward of heaven with Christ outweighs the pleasures of self gratification. There comes a point in your walk with the Lord where masturbation is something you do not need.
Dr. Mark Laaser, who wrote a book on Healing The Wounds Of Sexual Addiction, did a course and placed a powerful lesson on Sexual Addiction on CD. He asked a question, “Can you do without masturbation and sex with your wife?” That’s radical. Because he continued and said, “If you can’t, you do not have full control and you cannot manage your sex life.”
The release of sexual tension is powerful. However, there comes a point where these pleasure of life must come to an end one way or another. Either through self discipline or when the catching away of the people of God takes place. Even after that, people will still engage in some form of releasing sexual tension. Even then, it’s just a matter of time before it all comes to an end.
NO MORE SEX!!!!! FOREVER!!!!!!
For many people, a sense of hopelessness and shame clouds the mind. Hopelessness is the fog of war in the mind and flesh.
As long as this feeling of hopelessness lingers in the mind, the attempt to break free is the light at the end of the tunnel that is seemingly a fleeting thing. Many men and women have dashed their hopes because the urges and impulses dictates their every move.
In my studies about sexuality, I learned that many people plan their day around sex. It usually is at the expense of a marriage, their job, and ultimately, their relationship with the Lord. It was true for me too. The obsession, infatuation, day dreaming, open minded thoughts of reading a newspaper, magazine, women watching, and porn. My whole day was planned around an orgasm.
All these things and the true worship of God takes a back seat. In most cases, a relationship with God in hypocrisy is better than no relationship at all. As ridiculous as this sounds, this is where many of God’s people are. I can identify with this because when you refuse to equate the sin of self gratification as part of the religious ritual of false penance, it is easy to think that you are just as close to God as if you never sinned.
Like John, the apostle of the Lamb said, “If we say we have fellowship with Him and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.”
I know you are not going to let me off the hook about calling masturbation a sin because there is no specific chapter and verse that declares that masturbation is a sin. However, where the Bible is silent, it is never to be assumed that it is safe to commit an act. Besides, not many people will agree that since Jesus didn’t do it, neither should I.
This stops all of the pretense.
I mean, we are to be like Christ in every way? Right?
If this is so according to, Romans 8:29, and if we are to prove that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God, to yield our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is our reasonable service according to Romans 12:1, then we should be able, at least consider the fact that the Lord desires for sin to not have dominion over us according to Romans 6:12.
The majority of the time, we are always looking for a reason to “continue in sin that grace may abound” according to Romans 6:1. When we get to the place where we desire to please the Lord, we find ourselves looking for reasons to continue in righteousness so that grace may abound. We look to cut our hands and our eyes, we look to strive against sin even to the shedding of our own blood to stop sin.
No, put the Rambo knife down.
Jesus and the writer of Hebrews spoke of entering a place of radical cutting off of the instruments and members so that we would stop sinning.
Paul said, by the Spirit of God, “The body is not made for sexual immorality.”
The physical body was made to be indwelled by the Lord. The Lord desired to inhabit man and the body is not for fornication (pornea).
As long as we make provision to fulfill the desires of the flesh and mind, we will never break its cycle.
Millions of men and women throughout the world masturbate every day. For reasons that range from sexual perversion to fulfill lust, to releasing sexual tension is a major problem. It seems like marriage, which is the answer to stop masturbation is no longer the answer that man wants to accept. Additionally, self control, a fruit of the Spirit according to Galatians 5:22, is cast to the side.
The parable of the sower is the most powerful parable that Jesus ever spoke. In that parable is the answer to handle the problems we face in life. It also serves as the gauge or measuring tool to locate where you are in your relationship with the Lord. Producing fruit is the thing that most concerns the Father. Galatians 5:22. John 15:1-5 confirms this and Jesus further confirms this when He said that we are known by our fruit.
Man will stand in four places. Good ground, wayside, stoney ground, and thorny ground.
The last ground, thorny ground speaks of people that are trapped in cares, riches, and pleasures of life.
The pleasures of this life come with a price. If we are unable to cast aside the pleasures of this life, we may never be free. But thank God your failure is not final. While there is still time, you can enjoy freedom in Christ from the powerful urge to masturbate. You can return to experience a healthy sexual life with your wife or husband if you are married.
Most importantly, you can be restored in your relationship with the Lord in righteousness and true holiness, laying aside every weight and the sin that does so easily beset you, to lay aside every filthiness and overflow of wickedness, to cleanse ourselves from the filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Hopelessness is coming to an end for you. New life in Christ is at hand for you.
