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. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
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. 1Corithians 6:15-20;
In this age and time there is so much sexual perversion everywhere. There is hardly anything the world’s system does not use to promote immorality. From the print media to audio and visuals, sex is freely placed at the reach of everyone. It is a very common thing now to see undertones of sex in every ad and commercials; it appears the only language that currently appeals in the world is sex. God created sex for pleasures and procreation, and it is absolutely reserved only for a man and a woman who are legally married. Sex outside the four walls of marriage is a sinful act and will certainly attract the wrath of God. God’s position will never change it does not matter what the systems of the world permits or promotes.
Every act of sex can be considered as a covenant! Sex involves exchange of blood and can therefore be regarded as a covenant. Covenant binds two people together and brings them to the same level, one with the other, so also is sex. Sex creates an unseen link between two persons which is why the scripture says that ‘…he which is joined to an harlot is one body, for two, saith he, shall be one flesh’. It is a dangerous thing for anyone to think or assume that sex is an affair which involves the body only; in every sexual act, part of the being is given away! King Solomon with all his divine wisdom and great power was brought down to the altars of baal; he bowed himself at idols’ shrine and sacrificed to vain gods of the Assyrians and Egyptians. Here was a man, who provided divine instructions and direction to others through his words of wisdom, but now became a victim of the very thing he divinely warned others against. Why did the enemies get him so cheap? The answer is simple, since he joined himself with daughters of Pharaoh and Assyrians by way of sexual intercourse, he had tied his being together with theirs and this made it very easy for them to pull him to the shrines of their gods without any resistance. The enemies might continue to have strong hold upon your soul by reasons of immoral and sinful acts of sex unless you quit, truly repent and seek God’s face for deliverance.
There’s a spiritual consequence for every act of sexual intercourse. So many people think that sex is basically to satisfy natural orgies and no more, but sex is beyond the physical; it involves the soul! When a man and a woman engage in sexual intercourse, certain things are physically and spiritually transmitted between them. For instance, just as sicknesses and diseases like gonorrhea, syphilis, HIV AIDS can be transmitted in the physical, so also unseen covenants, curses, spells and woes can be transmitted in the spiritual. The reason so many people are suffering serious retrogression in life is not unconnected with their immoral acts and engagement in illicit sex. Sex actually creates an unseen doors of access through which many things can be taken away or deposited into someone’s life. The spiritual consequences of this transmission can be far reaching and cause permanent damage to the lives of the sexual partners unless they seek God’s intervention through genuine repentance. The set backs in the lives of many today can be traced to the fact that unseen weights and loads have been deposited in their lives through illegal sexual affairs.
There are different forms of sexual perversions which have ensnared the souls of men. Many people are travelling on the fast lane that leads to hell fire because of illicit sexual affairs. Sexual sins are of different types and kinds which include: fornication (sex between two unmarried persons or between an unmarried person and a married person); adultery (sex between two married persons or between a married person and an unmarried person); incest (sex between blood relations, brother and sister, father and daughter, mother and son etc); homosexuality (sex between a man and a man); lesbianism (sex between a woman and a woman); bestialism (sex between a man and an animal); masturbation (sex with ‘one self’) etc.
As the world sinks deeper and deeper into the murky waters of sexual perversion, God wants His children to keep themselves unspotted from every form of sexual immorality. So many people have lost their destinies and eternity on the altar of sexual immorality. We cannot afford to trade our eternity for physical pleasures that do not last and this is why we must take heed so as not to be ensnared.
