Blood Covenant. As a man, if you commit the sin of fornication with a woman, you have been covenanted with her through blood.
You have joined her as similar to marriage. If you have had five women, they have invariably conjoined with you. Moreover, if there is a curse on each of them, the curse will transfer to you. "What? Know ye not that he which is joined to a harlot is one body. For two saith he shall be one flesh" 1 Cor 6:16. You share your blessing, curses, diseases, generational curse, DNA, and demons with the person you have or still having sex with through blood.
Jesus met a woman of Samaria at Jacob's well when he was wearied with his disciples on their journey. In the course of his discussion with the woman, he asked her about her husband. She said I have no husband. And Jesus told her that she had had five husbands (Jn 4: 16-18). Some people are not married physically as ordained by God because there are not single yet. There are married to something else spiritually. There are married to handsets, blackberry, soap operas, make-ups, fashions, and fames. Many are still single yet because they are married to something else.
Loss of Spiritual Coverage
Sexual immorality makes you lose the spiritual coverage of God over your life. The Holy Spirit is out; the fire is out, and your spiritual defense is broken down, which gives way for Satan to enter in with its bags of sins, sicknesses, diseases, etc. You lack God's virtues in your life. "A wound and dishonor shall he get; his reproach shall not be wiped away" "for her house inclined unto death and her paths unto the dead. None that goes unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life. He that has no rule over his spirit is he that has no self-control over his spirit. It is like a broken city and walls. When the city and walls are broken, the enemy can come in any time and do what he likes to do, causing harm and ruining in person's life (Pro 2:18-19; 6:33; 25:28).
Wealth Devourer and Poverty Pathway
Many people who engage themselves in sexual sin have sold their wealth, intellect, and gifts through whoredom. A man that was a millionaire yesterday had turned to be poor, making the poor woman rich overnight, whom he had carnal knowledge with. May you not enrich the harlot with your wealth? A young man who is intelligent in his studies, because of sexual sin, had his intellectual strength turned to whoredom. He thinks about nothing else than women instead of his books. He becomes a companion of the poor. "Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house: lest thou give thy honor unto others and thy years unto the cruel. Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth, and thy labors are in the house of a stranger; and thou mourn at last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed" (Pro 5: 8-11). May you not mourn at last? A lot of us had allowed sexual sin to consume our flesh and body, regarded as God's house. A teenager who sold her virginity for almost $10,000 to a man has lost her pride as a woman. "Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies" (Pro 31:10).
It erodes Health and Lifespan.
"And thou mourn at last when thy flesh and thy body are consumed" (Pro 5:11). It invariably reduces one lifespan, health soundness, and general wellbeing. The sexual sin King David committed with Urial's wife was paid for through his future generation. "Now, therefore, the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast has taken the wife of Urial the Hittite to be thy wife. I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbor, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun" (2 Sam 12: 10-12). We have to be careful with this cancerous spiritual disease of sexual sin. One day you have to pay for it.
It leads to unstableness.
Reuben was the first son of Israel. He is the strength, the might, the Excellency of dignity and power of his father. Consequently, sexual sin eroded the virtues of God in his life. Thus, Reuben became unstable, cursed, and annihilated from excelling in life when he slept with his father's wife. Show me an unstable man in life. I can tell you the cause of its unstableness and annihilation. "While Israel was living in that region, Reuben went and slept with his father's concubine, Bilhah. And Israel heard of what he did". "Reuben, you're my firstborn, my strength, the first proof of my manhood, at the top in honor and at the top in power, but like a bucket of water soiled, you'll be at the top no more, Because you climbed into your father's marriage bed, mounting that couch, and you defiled it" (Gen 35:21-22; 49:3-4). The fundamental cause of one's unstableness is immorality. Find out!
It is a Garment of Indiscipline
Sexual sin is not just sin. It's possessed and oppressed by the spirit of uncleanness, foul spirit. "And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him and cried." "Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lust of their heart, to dishonor their bodies between themselves." "… To work all uncleanness with greediness" (Mk 3:11; Rom 1:24; Eph 4:17-19). Greediness is what pushes someone to take another one's wife or husband. To work with all uncleanness and greediness and to indulge in every form of impurity that their depraved desires may suggest and demand sexual sin. You can be addressed by your dressing. If you dress like a prostitute, you will be addressed like one, even if you are a good person.
The person involved in sexual sin may even inculcate hatred spirit to his sexual partner(s), not wanting anything to do with them anymore. "It came to pass after this that Absalom the son of David had a fair sister, whose name was Tamar: and Amnon the son of David loved her. And Amnon was vexed that he fell sick for his sister Tamar, for she was a virgin. He took hold of her and said unto her, Come lay with me, my sister. But, being stronger than she forced her and lay with her. Then Amnon hated her exceedingly so that the hatred wherewith he hated her was greater than the love wherewith he had loved her. And Amnon said unto her, arise, be gone" (2Sam 13:1- 15). Sexual sin is born out of lust and selfish interest in one's greed. When the urge is satisfied, then hatred comes up. Unlike godly sex acts, it's born and cherished in love. The physical manifestation of spiritual work of giving of one's self to another.
It leads to the abuse of the body because the body is not [made] for sexual immorality. When this occurs, it transmits chemical hormones to the brain that something is wrong with it because the body is [made] for the Lord and not for sexual sin. "Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord: and the Lord for the body" (1 Cor. 6:13b). It disorganized the body systems when it's done outside the ambit of marriage.
Prevent God's Plan
God's plan for sexuality is for male and female and not for either male-to-male or female-to-female. It's not for homosexuality or perversions. "Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord: and the Lord for the body. 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" (Rom 1: 32; 1 Cor. 6:13b).
Cut of God's Relationship and Marriage Blessing
Your relationship with God is cut off when you commit sexual sin. You can't serve God and mammon at the same time either you serve God or mammon. The Lord is acting as the witness between you and the wife of your youth because you have broken faith with her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant… do not break faith with the wife of your youth. "I hate divorce," says the Lord God of Israel..." (Mal 2: 13-16 NIV).
Childlessness and Infertility
Sexual sin can lead to childlessness and infertility. The abortion done to remove unwanted pregnancy can be a cause of infertility. The child may probably be the messiah of the family, the destined child. Thus, it may prevent other children from coming unless it's stopped by God's grace and intervention. In a situation where a Christian sister got pregnant for her Christian brother, out of shame and embarrassment of the church, she aborted the baby. This sin of abortion affects her in childbearing.
Trade bartered Birthright
Many men and women have sold out their Birthright through sexual sin. Young men sold their Birthright of firstborn intellectual skills. Ladies sold their right and dignity of virginity to acquire fame and position in their careers. Joseph and Moses maintained their position without compromising their faith in God; instead, they "chose rather suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season" and not "to do this great wickedness and sin against God" (Heb. 11:25; Gen 39: 9).
Loss of Position and Dignity
King David should have been the one to build the temple of the Lord. However, he lost the privilege of sexual sin when he committed adultery with Bathsheba, Uriah's wife. "You did it in secret, but I will do this thing in broad daylight before all of Israel." Eli's sons lost the position of the office of Levites, priests to sexual sin even at the altar of God. (Read 2 Sam 12: 12; 1 Sam 2:30-36 NIV).
When you cultivate the habit, alluring your mind with sexual thoughts, the addiction becomes hard to stop. You cannot cease from sin because the sin of their flesh has turned to them a besetting sin. "Therefore lay aside every weight of sin that besets us" (2Pet 2:14; Heb. 12:1). Besetting sin is a sign that you have a vested interest in and are not prepared to let go of. A self- indulged lust sin. "Besetting sins are tares. It's a particular area of weakness you have closely shielded from the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ. It's a sin that you have vested interest and therefore not prepared to let go," opined E. A. ADEBOYE. You have to lay aside every sin that entangles you, the sin of a stronghold in your life. You have to put off the life of worldliness in you to the nature of God.
