There probably was a time when the fear of God served as an incentive to abstain from the sins of the flesh.
Since the day the dispensation of grace entered, the devil uses the same old tactics to trip up the believer.
In the OT, Numbers chapters 19-25 revealed the reason why the children of Israel were stopped in the plains of Moab.
According to the Lord Jesus in the Book of Revelation, Jesus revealed the reason behind Israel’s failure. Balak, king of Moab, was in fear of the children of Israel because of the other nations that were wiped off of the face of the earth. The Moabites were so fearful that they got physically sick. To know that you are about to be killed would probably make anyone sick.
Balak asked for the services of a seer. The double agent, Balaam. Balak paid a hefty diviner’s fee to get Balaam to get the God of heaven to curse the children of Israel. God told the prophet that He cannot reverse the blessing. Not that God would reverse it because a deeper reason as to why God wouldn’t curse Israel is before Him.
The Seed (the Lord Jesus) was determined by the plan and purpose of God to come through Abraham.
To curse the children of Abraham would mean the end of the plan of God to send the Seed to save man. Below this is the fact that the Lord, by His immutable counsel, blessed Abraham and God will not change His mind (Malachi 3:6).
To further pervert man, sexual immorality is the one thing that was used in an attempt to pervert the promise of the Seed as spoken by the Lord in Genesis 3:15.
Sexual perversion among pastors is still a major issue. More than ever, it is being addressed, but not regularly. It’s only when we read about another pastor falling into Secret and Overt Sexual Sins that we start talking about it.
In most of Paul’s writings, we see that he addressed it regularly.
Notice what he said in Ephesians 5:3-7 “But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.
For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
Therefore do not be partakers with them.”
The word “fornication, fornicator.” It means “whoremonger.”
Pathetically, pastors that are not disciplined in their private lives, will be exposed publicly.
The combination of pastoral whoredom and parishioner whores is still wreaking havoc in the church.
Just because there are other subjects to deal with, if we fail to keep a watch in this area, we will get into trouble.
Jesus said in Matthew 26:41, “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
If the disciples could fall asleep, there is no difference in falling into sexual sins. It is when we are not attentive to the moments of vulnerability that we fall into sin. Temptation comes at any time, however, it is when we are weak that temptation is at its strongest. The will to fight isn’t as potent. That’s why every opportunity of temptation is used to weaken your resistance.
Temptation is like a torture test.
Each drip is designed to break your will, where you just can’t resist that one hot looking man of woman. Sooner or later, if you are not careful, you will give in to this temptation and fall into sin. That’s why Jesus went to the place of prayer regularly. To avoid the place of falling into sin as a result of being tempted. The obedience He learned (see Hebrews 5:8 and Philippians 2:8), paid off and when it was time for Him to die, there would be no question about His resurrection.
The glory that He had before the foundation of the world would be restored to Him.
Just as Hebrews 12:2b said
“…who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
His obedience earned Him the name that is above every name, a seat at the right hand of God, and authority over everything in heaven, earth, and under the earth. Until all things are subdued and then the Father resumes as Lord of all according to 1 Corinthians 15.
There is no question about the ratio of men to women. Predominantly, more women are in church than men. Women are not the problem. Sexually immoral women are part of the problem. The combination of sexually immoral women and sexually immoral pastors raises the potential of a scandal. When it comes to scandals, it all started years ago when sexual inquisitiveness entered people at an early age.
For people, being married to one person is not enough. “Extramarital affairs” is really illegal sex on the side.
When pastors and female parishioners commit adultery and or fornication, they risk being denied entrance into the kingdom. As Paul said by the Spirit of God, “fornicators” have no inheritance in the kingdom of God.
They must repent of sin. It is evident that the kind of whoremonger is that of the world, however, what about those that practice fornication as a believer?
Were they a believer in the first place? Were they genuinely saved?
As Paul said in 2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? — unless indeed you are disqualified.”
Here’s how you examine yourselves.
Paul said in Ephesians 4:17-24 “This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.”
If you are walking like the world, your salvation is suspect. If you are giving yourselves over to lewdness, your salvation is suspect.
If you are coming to church looking to “score,” your salvation is suspect.
Level one sexual addiction is porn, masturbation, adultery, fornication, prostitution.
It takes obedience, faith to implement or apply the Word of God, and courage to abstain from sexual immorality.
Sack time with Sister Suzy-Q is the staircase to hell. Sack time with a preacher is not worth going to hell over.
That’s what people do not think would happen. That when a person commits sexual sins, they are still going to heaven.
Read carefully 1 John 2:15-17. And read Ephesians 5:3-7.
Matthew 7:21-23, Revelation 21:8, and Hebrews 13:4, while you are at it.
Hell is full of people that never repented of sexual immorality. They never judged themselves.
If you are a pulpit whoremonger or a parishioner whore, the Lord offers forgiveness when you repent.
There is no need to turn the house of prayer into a gentlemen’s club.
On August 29-31, Megafest, with TD Jakes will take place.
As I was reading an article about couples struggling with pornography, I observed a statement that reminded me of something that I wrote about several months ago. In fact, I did a BlogTalkRadio show on women and porn. Then, I came across a statement about Oprah’s guest condoning porn for married couples.
The light came on about Oprah and porn.
If there is ever a time where we needed to investigate further what is behind all of what is happening, it is now.
Now I am not saying that Oprah, in teaching her false prophetess, high priestess “Life Class,” will teach about porn but when you are connected to porn, anything is possible. This is not an accusation, nor is it speculative.
It is a known fact that Oprah endorses the use of pornography.
As I have said before, no one watches porn and doesn’t masturbate, adulterate, or fornicate, or engage in homosexuality.
The two are interconnected. Porn is the fuel for acting out sexually. Masturbation is self bondage to the lusts of the flesh and mind.
This link, while it was done a few years ago, is further proof that when you are dealing with a person, all you have to do is connect the dots. Click the link below and you will see that porn is deeply connected and whole heartedly endorsed by Oprah.
When Kirk Franklin confessed his porn habit to Oprah and to the world, it was more like a confession that endorsed the use of porn.
Among those that profess faith in Jesus and watch porn, it is nothing new.
Pastors are the worst when it comes to porn, but to put your sin of pornography out to the world, and that to one that endorses the use of porn, is a sacrifice on her perverted altar.
Be forewarned that this link is about women addicted to porn.
1 in 3 women watch porn and it is increasing.
One of the things that you have to understand is that in the realm of the spirit, otherwise known as the “heavenlies,” is demon power.
When “a man of God” (TD Jakes) is unaware of the interconnectedness of people and their associations, and associates, transference of spirits will take place. When a ministry is connected to demon power, anything is possible. In all probability, Jakes knows but he chooses to associate with someone that wholeheartedly endorses one of the most destructive forms of depraved human behavior in the world.
Remember, “The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9
Every time these men are on the stage with Oprah Winfrey, it is supposed to be an “Elijah” moment.
Not that we are to call fire down but that we rigorously and unapologetically stand for the only True Potentate.
Otherwise, the coexist agenda succeeds.
On Mt. Carmel, one of the most awesome moments in Israel’s history took place.
“If God be God, follow Him. If Baal be god, then follow him.”
Baal was no where to be found after the followers of Baal cried out and profusely cut themselves. Fire came from heaven after Elijah prayed to the real God that answered by fire.
You would expect men of God to challenge the high priestess and false prophetess of our times.
No. Like Elijah, these men ran from confrontation.
I expect someone on the stage in Dallas, or any where, to command Oprah to repent and not eat her dainties. I expect someone to stand and denounce Oprah’s Life Class. I expect someone to stand boldly and proclaim that this is demonic. If no one cries out, it is because they are in the bed of spiritual fornication with Oprah.
It is expected that the subject of porn will not be discussed but connected to porn is the human trafficking that takes place on a daily basis. Thousands of women and teen girls are taken from their homes. Kidnapped, raped, and tortured. Creflo Dollar, in preaching about holiness, is coming down there to Dallas. I’ve heard Creflo’s message on holiness and sanctification. It was on point.
However, when you forget what you’ve preached and end up in the den of demons to show your face and be supportive of a man of God that is compromised, then all that preaching about holiness was for nought. We should have known when Dollar called Eddie Long’s alleged sexual immorality with young boys, “a train wreck,” that Creflo Dollar was compromised.
IV Hilliard will be there too. Along with Israel Houghton, Joel Osteen, and Marvin Sapp and others.
Almost assuredly, when there is a connection to idol worship, sexual immorality is part of their pagan ritual. If you study the life of Solomon, he had over 1000 women. They were a combination of 700 wives, princesses, and 300 concubines (see 1 Kings 11:3). Verse 2 says Solomon “You shall not intermarry with them, not they with you. Surely they will turn away your hearts after their gods. Solomon clung to these in love.”
Is it possible that Solomon was a sex addict? It’s not only possible, but look at these numbers and you will get an idea that this king was undisciplined, to say the least. David proved his undisciplined life with the adultery with Bathsheba and the murder of her husband, Uriah.
When you are dealing with immoral feminine power, there is no question that many men will be slaughtered at the altar of sexual immorality.
Again, while they are dealing with the Life Class, there is no evidence that they will be teaching about sex and porn.
I just want to make you aware of the fact that not only are these men and women of God incredibly blind about Oprah’s background, there will be many believers that will attend that do not know, or they may know and will suppress the Word of God and the Holy Spirit within them just to be star struck by a celebrity.
What will happen afterwards?
A whole lot of messed up lives.
However, the Lord is never caught by surprise. He still knows how to reach people regardless of the devil’s tactics.
Just continue to pray that the Holy Spirit would warn as many as possible.
Finally, this could be a part of the “strong delusion” that is to come.
