ESSENTIALITY OF ABSTINENCE FROM PRE-MARITAL SEX

As designed by GOD, your virginity is the bed rock of your destiny. It is your spiritual beauty. It carries the star, potential and talent which GOD created with you to make you unique.
It is the star in your sky. Please do not pollute your destiny.The world is waiting for your star to shine!
Your body is the temple of GOD. Yeah, as HIS sons and daughters, HE lives in us. You are the carrier of GOD’s presence. The more reason you have to make your body sanctified (Holy).

Let me tell you the truth, your curiosity about sex and the way your body feels is normal. However, all you need to do is to condition your mind & calm your desires and flee from every thing that provokes your sexual desire. 1 Corinthians 6:18 says:

“Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.”

More importantly is that you do not let temptation catch up with you. To be tempted is not a sin but falling into it, is a sin.

Is the environment you find yourself so sexual, the channels on the Tv are showing nude contents? you have girls in the neighborhood dressing almost nude? your colleagues in the college are talking about how they engage in sex, your staff members have many concubines?
The truth is that the world is full of temptation of one thing or the other. So, what can you do?
What you can do: Be of good courage; Be careful not to fall off;
Call on the HOLY SPIRIT to help you; Guide your heart with the Words of GOD; Begin to communicate to GOD in spirit (Singing, Meditating the Word and Praying). 1 Corinthians 10:13 says:

“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. GOD is faithful, and HE will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation HE will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”

Abstaining from pre-marital sex is so essential that, it is one of the attributes of a true son or daughter of GOD. A true child does the will of the Father.

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 says:

“For this is the will of GOD, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in Holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the gentiles who do not know GOD”

Lying And Crucial Reasons To Stop Lying

Lying: An act of telling a lie, or falsehood. It is a act of one who lies, or a act of a person who keeps low to the ground.

Nowadays lying is a widespread problem of many people. This behavior problem can seriously affect your life. It is easy to lose trust of your friends, dearest and nearest people. Lying can cause very serious mental and life problems. You may come to a standstill and spend years to handle the situation. I think it is much easier to prevent and reduce lying than disentangle the consequences of this behavior. Do not let lying affect your happiness and choices. I will prove that lying is a slow killer of your personality. Moreover, the Bible makes us to understand that GOD hates liars. As a believers we now that lying is a sin, yet so many people are under the bondage of the spirit of lies. The Bible recorded that GOD hates liars. This is to let you know that no matter what form it may take or regardless of the adjective a liar gives to his or her act of lying (white lies, black lies, small lies, etc), all lies are sin ad GOD hates those who indulge in it.

Looking at what the Bible says about liars:

These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.- Proverbs 6:16‭-‬19 NKJV

Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord , But those who deal truthfully are His delight.
– Proverbs 12:22 NKJV

But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
Revelation 21:8 NKJV

WHERE SHALL WE GO?

connnWHERE SHALL WE GO? When we can no longer differentiate a church from a social gathering, and all what we do in church is to just have fun. When we can’t differentiate a choir from a harlot, and an usher is not different from a waiter. When the church is no more conducive where shall we go? When worship session in a church is just like a disco night and we cant differentiate a pastor from a comedian. When salvation message is no longer the order of the day but prosperity and entertainment message is now the core course. When the church is no more conducive where shall we go? When prayer warrior now have to go to tongue-speaking school for utterances, and deliverance and healing session is now like MTH 201 to be taught and learned.

When pastor have to pause for members to clap and shout during sermon in enthusiasm, and all what we now gain from preaching is new vocabulary and word usage. When the church is no more conducive where shall we go? When the church of God is now an exhibition ground for the latest designer jackets and hats. And  new converts can no longer come to church for the fear of being inferior. When tithes and offerings in church become the yard-stick for growth, and the little donations from the faithful member have to suffer for senior pastor’s birthday. When the church is no more conducive where shall we go?

When the senior Pastors retired to the vestry and asked the junior Pastors to conduct services for them while they go to sleep, where shall we go?When Pastors no longer attend Sunday school and Bible teachings but hand it over to volunteer ministers where do we go? When fund raising is now disguised and referred to as revival. When the number of souls being lost from the church is higher than gained souls.

Where shall we go is the question right; But never a rhetoric one. Where we can go is simply the feet of the old rugged cross to plead for genuine spiritual revival of the church of our Father. Someone sent this to me and I found it thought provoking.

What do you think about this?
