THE SEX ISSUE - TO SINGLES


Sex is sweet and was created by God for the satisfaction of the man and woman who are married - a bed undefiled (Hebrews 13 vs. 4). Sex was created for procreation and pleasure. The continuity of man is essential and so, the need for sex. However, as married couples, sex is a major way of keeping the love bond stronger and tighter.

In the past, before colonization, virginity was highly placed and regarded. Every girl wanted to be a virgin on her wedding night as this would bring about increased honour and respect to her from her husband and to her family which will be accorded to them by her in - laws and people around them. There were gifts prepared for the virgin bride after her wedding night. The bed sheet used on her wedding night must be white so that the blood stain can serve as an evidence to all.

After colonization, Christianity came in and proffered the same thing as seen in the Bible. There are many scriptures that recognizes only sex after marriage. Sex before marriage is regarded as fornication and a sin to God.

However, as we entered the scientific age and progressed, things have totally changed. The abnormal is now seen as normal. The normal is now seen as abnormal. It looks like the world has finally turned upside down and the world is rotating in the wrong direction. Everything seems distorted. Right is now wrong and wrong is now right.

The problem emanated from parents advising their male - child to 'try' out their to - be wife so as to clarify she is fertile enough to get pregnant and before the twinkle of an eye, it became the normal trend. Films began to promote fornication - a guy and a girl meet for the first time, they fall in love and the next thing is sex and then, they break up, come back, have sex, marry. Before our own eyes, sex has become a normal trend and phenomenon.

But then, I do tell peeps, don't do things because you think its right. Do things because God has ordained it as right. Human wisdom is like foolishness before God (1Corinthians 1 vs. 25). You cannot be wiser than the person that created you. God has his plans and principles and He has a reason for everything. God has said no sex before marriage as fornication is an abomination to Him but your own human wisdom proffers another thing and you feel good.

As singles, we should keep our bodies Holy and acceptable to God because it is in this single - period that you can dedicate enough time to serve God. Our body is the temple of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost resides inside us and you cannot decide to corrupt it, You have to realize that the day you got born again, you surrendered your life and will to God and confessed Him as your Lord and saviour. Do you know what it means to be Lord? You have no self will. It is the Lords'. The day you start working on your own, you have disrupted and terminated the agreement and corrupted your body and thereby sent the Holy Spirit away.

You cannot be fornicating and claiming the Holy Spirit lives in you. Who are you deceiving?

I have so many male friends and I have noticed that so many of them have this sex problem. They just cannot do without having sex with a lady and there is always a reason behind it. Its either they were molested or abused at a tender age or they do it to revenge or they just see it as fun or they were exposed to sexual materials at a tender age. Whatever the reason, no reason is an excuse before God. God has given you His word and there is no 'maybe' or consideration. It is a matter of 'YES, SIR!' for He is Lord and God!

There are so many people that are sex addicts already. In fact, there are some virgins that are giving themselves sexual satisfaction already. They still want to keep their virginity but at the same time, they still want that sexual satisfaction.

Sex is promoted through novels - romance novels. Wisdom should tell you that reading romance novels changes your mentality and brings an urge into your body system. It is promoted through films and we have these films around us. In fact, some Christian movies now promote kissing. It is promoted through bill boards and adverts. What has a nude lady got to do with a shoe advert? It is promoted through books and magazines. It is promoted through music. Most secular music have nothing to offer than rant about love and sex. Their lyrics are dull and sharp.

There are sites that promote pornography. An average teenager has a pornographic video or picture on his or her phone. The devil has really eaten deep as too many people are eating the forbidden fruit already. Youths want to feel among. Some people see themselves as big due to the amount of ladies they have slept with.

Sex is a covenant and agreement because blood is exchanged. You cannot be a sex worker and be free from problems. If you have been having sex before marriage and you do not repent, you will just keep creating problems for yourself.

I have no sermon for fornicators but I have a message for fornicators - whether disvirgined or virgins that masturbate and think about it.

1Corinthians 6 vs. 9 - 11

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.


So, if you are committing fornication already, there is no two ways to it. Just know that your ticket to hell is secured. Even if you fast and pray and speak in tongues and preach the gospel but you still fornicate, it is a well secured flight to hell. How does it feel having the knowledge that you are on your path to destruction? Very bad right? Its time to make a U- turn to the path of life and righteousness by fleeing from fornication for God detests it. It is too rampant in the world and the devil is pleased. Its time to send the devil packing. Flee fornication and be set free!

1Thessalonians 4 vs. 3 - 4

3 For this is the will of God, [even] your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

May God help us all in Jesus Name. AMEN
