5 UNCOMMON TRUTH ABOUT SEX YOU NEED TO KNOW




Welcome to purposeful living today.
Dear friend,  know that life is all about living for a purpose when you are not then you are just existing...God never made a mistake in creating you. He made you for a Purpose ( Jer 29:11).

Today I want to share with you on some of the secret I discovered about sex.

The subject of sex to many is unholy, see here on Is sex a Sin?  I remember while growing up you dare not mention the word sex, you may have a free slap on your face and you will be ready to face a panel that will question you on who told you and where you heard it from? You become a suspect from that day, you will certainly be watched closely.  This is how many of us grew up without knowledge about sex education. The only thing most people knew was pornography and this is how the addiction of many to pornography began. They taught it was fun, but they never knew the effect it had on their mind, destiny and life... Nobody told them the truth, they were only told to run from the opposite sex. The church hardly preach a sermon on this especially to our young people who are vulnerable to the lies of the devil about sex in our world today. Since, the church refuse to teach her members the devil has been doing this through the media. You hardly watch a movie without a sex scene. This is a strategy of the devil to destroy the lives and destiny of young people through engaging them to sexual immorality by inciting sexual perversion in their hearts. No wonder we have people who are Christians living in homosexuality, erotica, bestiality, bisexuality, fornication, adultery sinful lust, pornography, and pedophilia. See post on Concrete steps on how to overcome mastubation and other sexual sins. They find nothing wrong living these sinful life style. This is never God's will, in the beginning God did not create Adam and Steve neither did he create Eve and Esther... The church must stand up to protect the young people by teaching her God's will in all aspect of life.
So let's look at some truth about sex
1. Sex is Godly
"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." (Genesis 1:27).
Most people have the ideology that sex is a sin and it is not from God. Sex was created by God and like every other thing he created and He said it was good. So sex  is good, it is holy, it becomes a sin when done outside God's order which is in a sacred martial union. The sexual feelings you have is not unholy or ungodly. It is God that put that feeling in you and He did so for a purpose, but it will be expressed at the right time in a God ordained martial union.
2. Sex is a gift
Sex is a God given gift  to a man and woman to enjoy ( Proverbs 5:15-19). Just as life is a gift so is sex a gift. You don't have to pay for it, it was never made to be bought or sold as it is done today. God gave you your sexual desires and your body as a gift.  Every gift can be used or abused, this shows your value for the gift and the giver. Every gift is given for a purpose. When you sell your body you are a harlot, no matter the reason it is done. You devalue your body and you show no respect and fear of God in your heart.  Sex is a sacred gift for married  couples committed to each other not for unmarried persons. This gift is for your pleasure and for His glory (Isaiah 43:21).

3.Sex is for a Season
The bible says there is time for every thing under the sun (Eccl 3:1). There is a time for you to abstain from sex because you are not married and there is a time to engage in it. God has a constituted order for sex and that is only in marriage. Anything outside of this order is a sin, it does not matter what you call it. If it is between two unmarried male and female the bible calls it as the sin of fornication while between two married male and female it is called adultery. This is what God says ; "Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge." ( Hebrews 13:4).
This means that the only ground permitted for sexual activity is in marriage, if you do it outside this God said order you are defiling the bed.
4.Sex is for a Reason
"And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." (Genesis 1:28).
Sex has two very important reason which are for "procreation" and "pleasure"they both have a multiplier effect on the marriage. Procreation is to give birth to children. Pleasure is to increase the bond among partners ( Prov 5:15-19).
5. Sex is a Spiritual and is a Covenant
Sex is more than just a physical act it is spiritual, it has to do with blood. It is two persons becoming one. You become spiritual, mentally and emotionally connected to anyone you have sex with. This is why most people are living a scattered life style, nothing seems working for them. Some persons destiny have been tied down through sexual immortality. It takes prayer to break from such ties. This is how the bible puts it:
"Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh." ( 1 Corinthians 6:15-16).
Before you think about having sex:
1. Do you have the permission of God to do it with that person?
2. Did you think you can do with your body what you want? You have forgotten that you don't own your body but God does - "Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." ( 1 Corinthians 6:18-20).
3. Whose temple is your body? Is it the Holy Spirit or for demons? If it is for the Holy Spirit then you have to stay holy, away from every uncleanness.  The bible says your body is for the Holy Spirit and it has been bought with a price( the blood of Jesus). See post on What actually makes a woman beautiful
Most times I hear people dating say they will only have sex if the person they are dating is ready. They don't even think about God and His command. They engage in it without God consciousness and honouring God with their bodies and in their relationship. This is what the bible calls rebellion against God - you know the truth but you ignore it and you still continue in sin. If you love God you will keep Him commandment not deriving  your own commandment to suit your own selfish desires.
Life is not about you but it is about giving glory to God with your life. Every thing God created is for your pleasure, it is only you that is for his pleasure (Isaiah 43:7).
Friend, sexual immortality is a sin against God, He will not change his standards because of you. This is what He said in His word:
"Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are."( 2 Timothy 2:19).
Turn away from living in sexual immorality today and the only way is to invite the lord Jesus into your life and surrender your body as instrument of righteousness not of sin daily to Him. You can't help yourself out of it you need His ability. He loves you  dearly, that is why he gave you His life.
You can invite the Lord Jesus in your life now by saying this prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ  I acknowledge that I am a sinner,  I believe in your death and resurrection.  I ask you forgive me my sins,  I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life.  I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen .
If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.

  2. Thanks Mr Ola for opening up. If you have repented from the sin of fornication, God has forgiven because He loves you, then you have to trust God's grace to overcome any sexual sin and you also have to set boundaries for yourself like bringing her alone to your house, cohabiting, being with her alone in a secluded environment, unnecessary physical touch etc.

    Don't forget your body is for God and He bought with the Blood of Jesus ( 1 Corinthians 6:18-20).
    Thanks for sharing, hope I answered your question? You are blessed.
