HOW TO OVERCOME SEXUAL IMMORALITY



 "Your life is on Purpose you are not a biological mistake."


 Sexual purity is one of the greatest battle that young people and even adults in this generation are faced with. This battle is so intense because it is fueled by the devil especially through the social media. There are lots of motion pictures being displayed that creates the impression that sexual sin ( Fornication, adultery, gay, lesbianism, masturbation, etc) is not a sin and there is nothing wrong with it, you should do what you like with your body. You hear them say if you are in a relationship, when both of you are ready you can have sex. Is this what God tells us to do?

 "Let marriage be held in honor (esteemed worthy, precious, of great price, and especially dear) in all things. And thus let the marriage bed be undefiled (kept undishonored); for God will judge and punish the unchaste [all guilty of sexual vice] and adulterous" (AMP Hebrews 13:4).

 This is why some Christians dress provocatively and seduce the opposite sex in the name of we are born again. How can a Princesses or Prince dress like a Slave? They call this attitude as "free will", "right to live" and "freedom to live the way they want", all these are just demonic and Satan's strategy to pull people down to hell. Most believers have been caught in this trap of the devil, they now live to be like the world and forget their identity as Ambassadors of Christ on earth ( 2 Corinthians 5:20).

 They who are meant to give standard to the world from the word of God now pattern their lives according to the world's standard ( Romans 12:1-2).

 "So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them" (Genesis 1:27).

 They forget that we are created in the image and likeness of God not that of the devil, so we are to live to please Him.

 The Truth to Overcome Sexual Sins: Prayers alone have not actually empowered people to live a life of purity. Have you ever wondered why a person who was delivered of a sexual sin, still goes back into that sin and even in a worse situation? Is it because she was not properly delivered? No! It is because the person did not receive the knowledge of the Truth, live and abide in the Truth. No wonder Jesus says that it is the Knowledge of the truth that makes a man free not just prayer and fasting (John 8:32). These are very important but the knowledge and revelation of the TRUTH is more important than all you can do. You can pray and fast amiss but you can't have knowledge of the Truth and pray amiss. "Lay hold of the Truth..." What is the Truth? "Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me" (AMP John 14:6).


 The truth is a person and that person is JESUS CHRIST. It is the knowledge and revelation of Jesus Christ and His finished works on the Cross of Calvary. Do you know who Jesus is to you, do you believe in Him? He is only way out. He came to set man free from the oppression and lies of the devil (John 8:44). He is the Truth to a glorious life on earth.

 "Stop the Struggle of what you can do, you have try your best to run from it but you still engage in it. It is time to rely on Jesus, He will empower you by the power of the Holy Sprit to overcome it as you constantly behold Him. He loves you dear and wants you free, that is why He died on the Cross for your deliverance."

 The truth that makes you free from Sexual Sins is this:
"13. Food [is intended] for the stomach and the stomach for food, but God will finally end [the functions of] both and bring them to nothing. The body is not intended for sexual immorality, but [is intended] for the Lord, and the Lord [is intended] for the body [to save, sanctify, and raise it again]. 14. And God both raised the Lord to life and will also raise us up by His power. 15. Do you not see and know that your bodies are members (bodily parts) of Christ (the Messiah)? Am I therefore to take the parts of Christ and make [them] parts of a prostitute? Never! Never! 16. Or do you not know and realize that when a man joins himself to a prostitute, he becomes one body with her? The two, it is written, shall become one flesh. 17. But the person who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him" (AMP 1 Corinthians 6:13-17).

 "The truth I want you to see from verses is that your body is not your own but it is owned by Christ Jesus and you are one with Him, and should not be an instrument of sin but of righteousness."

Can you tell me how much you bought your body? You have a nice voice where did you buy it from? You are very beautiful and attractive to guys, are you a product of your own making? God gave you all you have my dear, that has made people love and bless you. Dear friend, your body is not what you own, you are just a tenant in the body, when the landlord needs to take it away He does it as He wills. You own your cell phone and can do with it what you want to, you can chose to smash it right now to the ground and go and get a new one immediately because you can afford another one. But if you stab yourself to death or commit suicide, you can't expect to have another life or another body. This is because you don't own it.

 "Shun immorality and all sexual looseness [flee from impurity in thought, word, or deed]. Any other sin which a man commits is one outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body 19. Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own, 20 You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body."(1 Corinthians 6:18-20).

 Your body is not your own but belongs to God, so you don't do with it what you want that is against His will like sexual immorality. When you have this revelation that your body is God's temple (where He dwells), you will not take His temple that is Holy to live an unholy lifestyle. Sexual Immorality has nothing to do with if both of you agree to have a sexual relationship, but has to do with God's will for sexual relationship which is made for marriage and your identity in Christ Jesus.


 "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light" (1Peter 2:9). It has to do with your personality and uniqueness in God, you belong to the lord not to a man or woman no matter how much love you have for them and you are not to live by the standard of the world. You are a child of God and God lives in your body. Don't jump from one Lady or guy to another, like a dog. God has a plan for your life. The world says it is fun and you are learning how to satisfy your spouse in marriage, what a lie from the devil! God never told us that, if you have to learn it, then please tell me who taught Adam and Eve how to have sex?

 "Sexual immorality destroys and hinders you from fulfilling God's plan for your life." 

 If you know the mental, physical and spiritual implication of sexual immorality in your life and destiny you will flee from it like Joseph did. The challenge of this generation is that we refuse to focus daily beholding the face of Jesus Christ in our quiet time with Him, so we behold the world's system always and our minds are polluted instead of being renewed by the word of God when we dwell in His presence.

What's the gain of living in sexual immorality? The only gain is some few minutes of pleasure and the pain will last for a long to time even for a life time. Be wise! Friend, take hold of this Revelation that you( your body) belongs to Christ. You are Christ and His Ambassador on earth. Pray with this revelation and receive Grace to overcome sexual immorality. God created our body for His Glory, so we need His permission and live by His will before we do what we want to. He has a plan for sex, so let's live by it not by the lies the devil reveals in the world today.

 "The devil wants to steal from you the joy of having a beautiful marriage, that is why he wants you to engage in sexual immorality, so he can destroy your marriage."

 Glory to God we are Christ's and He lives in us, He has paid it full on the Cross.

 If you have not made Jesus Christ who loves you dearly as your Lord and personal saviour you will struggle living in sexual immorality.

 You can begin a relationship now with the lord Jesus Christ 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.
