Dangers Of Sexual Sin (part 2).

Closeness to Hell and Death. There is the proximity of hell and death on the one bond in by the spirit of the lust of the flesh; sexual sin.

HIV, AIDS, and other related sexually transmitted diseases, when contracted, can lead to death and eventually to a lake of fire. "For to be carnally minded is death" and "stolen waters are sweet and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knows not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell" (Rom 8:6; Pro 9:17-18). But he knows not that the dead are there, waiting for him to enter the depths of hell. The harlot (dead) is there, and her guests are in the depths of hell. Your relationship with the immoral person is the gradual pathway to hell. You're digging your grave in her. You are digging your grave in him- the dead. If care is not taken, you will be the "guest in the depths of hell."

Disgrace and Shame

Sexual sin also brings disgrace and shame. Unwanted pregnancy is a shame. It's a disgrace to the victim. Abortion is a shame because the person committing it wants to remove the shame of carrying the illegal pregnancy. This was what led King David to kill Urial, Bathsheba's husband, because she was pregnant for King David. "And it came to pass in an eventide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof he saw a woman washing herself, and the woman was beautiful to look upon… and the woman conceived and told David and said I am with a child" (2 Sam 11). David killed Mr. Urial in order to remove his shame and disgrace. The twin sisters lead to murder through abortion, which is the killing of lives. Abortion is killing, the wages of sexual sin.

It leads to idolatry. 

Some of us had been addicted to the spirit of sexual sin. They can't be satisfied until they crave the gratification of their lust. "know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death or of obedience unto righteousness." "Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lust of their own heart, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves. And even as they do not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind to do those things which are not convenient. Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but have pleasure in them that do them". They can't please God; instead, they "have pleasure in committing sin" and "derive pleasure in them that do it" (Rom 1:24, 28, 32; 6: 16; 8:8). Whatever you exult; you bow down to or lifted up more than the Spirit of God has become an idol to you. "These are they who separate themselves sensually, having not the Spirit of God" (Jude 1: 19). Sexual sin addiction has made them sensually carnal that the spirit and presence of God are no more in their life.

Giving up sin is a result of idolatry. The corruption of truth in the swarm of unrighteousness. Only that they know not the timing of His wrath, as unrepentant sinners are by that wrath carried away by their own lust into a bottomless pit of vile passions (Rom. 1:18). God deals with sexual sins, like all sinners, by abandoning them to their own desires as a disciplinary action that might lead to repentance. God's intervention is to smite in order to heal. "And the Lord shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the Lord, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them" (Isaiah 19:22).

Loss of Spiritual Anointing

Anointing is what makes one different from others. It's what makes you outstanding in life. On the other hand, understanding (spiritual insights) makes you different and outstanding in life as it does the anointing. "But whoso committed adultery with a woman lacked understanding: he that does it destroyed his own soul," "I pray that the eyes of your understanding (heart) being flooded with light; be open" (Pro 7:32; Eph. 1:18). Sexual sin leads to degradation of anointing and lack of godly insights. It destroys souls. It's (soul destruction is) the punishment of committing the sin. "For whoso findeth me findeth life, and obtain favor of the LORD. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death" (Pro 8: 35-36; 20: 2). When you find God, you find life and favor. On the other hand, when you sin against God by loving death, it dwells in sexual sin. You're destroying your soul. In God, we flourish in life and favor. But when we sin, our souls are sentenced to eternal death.

It turns Victor into a victim.

"And Israel abode in shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab. And they called the people unto the sacrifice of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods. And Israel joined himself unto Baal-Peor, and the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel. The children of Israel committed whoredom with the daughters of Moab. Secondly, they bowed down to their gods and ate defiled food meant for the idol. Lastly, death was the consequence of their atrocity. And those that died in the plagues were twenty and four thousand" (Num 25:1-3, 9).

Manipulation of Control

The spirit of immorality controls the victim who involves himself in the act. It makes you lose control of your senses, making you uncontrollable. When I was involved in masturbation, any time it came over me, I lost control of myself. Before then, I told myself that I would never meet a woman until I got married. Just to keep to the bible, the rules of marriage are undefiled. Yet I had myself defiled through masturbation. I cried to God to help me stop this mess in my life, asking Him to create in me a right spirit. I told it to my fiancée then (now my wife), and she prayed that God should forgive me. We prayed together with groaning within us. The spirit of sexual sin messed me up until God destroyed it. If you are in this kind of situation, the Lord who saw me through will help you. You have to see a pastor of a living church. See chapter 4 on masturbation for more details.

Samson lost the virtues of God in him through the spirit of sexual sin as Delilah was pressing him to tell her where his power lay. "And she said unto him, How canst thou say, I love thee when thine heart is not with me? Thou hast mocked me these three times and has not told me wherein thy strength lieth. And it came to pass when she pressed him daily with her words and urged him so that his soul was vexed unto death; that he told her all his heart, and said unto her; there hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my mother's womb; if I am shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak and be like any other man. And she made him sleep upon her knees, and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head, and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him" (Judges 16:15-17,19). Delilah was pressing him with her words until she enticed his heart unto death. "So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him. I have peace offering with me…she caused him to yield with the flattering of her lips as she forced him" (Pro 7: 13, 14, 21). Never yield to the nagging or pressing pressure of the one who wants to tempt you to sin, irrespective of how you loved the person. Or else your destiny will be doomed.

Manipulation of Destiny

Many destinies of young people have been manipulated by witchcraft, bringing the victim to a piece of bread, a mere man. The bright future of many immoral has been eaten up by witchcraft through fornication. Some believers are yet to recover the future already lost to years of sexual sin, and it takes time to recover what you lose by body abuse, typically the sexual sin. "For by means of a whorish woman, a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life" (Pro 6:26).

Manipulation of Semen

The life of a man lies in his blood. The semen released by ejaculation from both partners is blood-formulated semen. Evil spirits use this liquefied blood, white blood cells, if care is not taken, to manipulate lives, destinies, and future life. If you have been in this kind of situation, see a pastor of a living church for deliverance and pray for God's mercy and forgiveness. "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (Jn 1:9). Hollywood movies like (Blood Rayne and Underworld) will teach you the evil manipulation with blood semen. Anyone you see roaming about with no future in sight is a victim of sexual sin manipulation.

Deception

Sexual sin is false, deception, and counterfeit for real intimacy, and a Christian must not lie to maintain a double life and a broken marriage covenant, or else he will be deceived and lead astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ" (2 Corinthians 11:3). When a Christian commits sexual sin and loses his spiritual virginity, he or she is deceived from true moral guilt and the need for forgiveness and repentance. Losing one's virginity before marriage is serious, but losing one's spiritual virginity before the return of Christ is much more dreadful. The effect of sexual sin [after] not only for the singles but also on married couples is more difficult to understand (Isaiah 62:5; 2 Cor. 11:2; Hosea 2:19, 20). 

Deception may come from outside sources. But regardless of the source, deception affects the mind and influences what people think about God and themselves, and easily leads them astray. To understand how we are deceived is one thing, but to guard against it is another. We often do not know when we are being deceived. That is the nature of deception. Deception attacks God-centered living through self-centered thinking and comes from within one's own heart and mind. Every sexual sin is deceitful and affects the mind, so the temptation often is not recognized for what it truly is until after the sin is committed. Christians are capable of being "deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures" (Titus 3:3 NIV).

First, deceit hides what we should clearly understand and consider – our faithfulness to God and spouse. Second, deceit conceals the consequences of sexual sin, so our minds are diverted from understanding its danger. Deceit prevents us from seeing the foolishness of sexual sin in the moment of temptation. When we examine the impact of sexual sin on truth, the life of the church, and the purity of our faith, we begin to understand how deception is one of the greatest challenges to the church today.

The nature and power of deception to attack a person's faith combined with the subtlety of his self-centered heart is a lethal weapon against the soul. Jesus warns, "Many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold" (Matthew 24:10-12, NIV). The church will not disappear. However, Christian morals will become more insincere and impure, leaving the bride of Christ grossly deformed. The end of this age will come, but if we stand idly, we are recklessly ignoring the command of our Lord, "See that no one leads you astray, for they prophesy lies, false vision and divination unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the Lord" (Matt 24: 4; Jer 14:14 - 16; 29:8 - 9).
