I’m speaking to the church here, believers, those born again by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, not the world as their fate is already sealed unless they believe. “Unless you believe I Am He, you will die in your sins.”(John 8:24).
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is not hard to understand. Every believer is deemed RIGHTEOUS when they believe in Jesus. “and may be found in Him [Jesus] not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the Righteousness which comes from GOD on the basis of FAITH.” (Philippians 3:9) So every believer in Jesus is righteous! [you can stop the false pride now saying you’re not]
Seeking and walking in your own personal Sanctification must be your main pursuit the REST OF YOUR LIFE as the enemy of your soul will never let up tempting you to fail and fall. Sanctification is this: abstaining from sexual immorality, period! Look at these few verses. “For this is the will of God, your Sanctification, that is that you abstain from sexual immorality.” (1 Thess. 4:3) So he who rejects this is not rejecting Man, but the God who gives His Holy Spirit to you.” (1 Thess. 4:8) “Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification WITHOUT WHICH NO ONE WILL SEE THE LORD.” (Hebrews 12:14) Now that’s one sobering statement and thought.
Those Christians who just don’t fear God and don’t control their own bodies and give in to the lust of the flesh and to impurity of every sort, will bust hell wide open if they don’t repent. ” For those who go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a terrifying expectation of judgment and THE FURY OF A FIRE WHICH CONSUME THE ADVERSARIES.” (Hebrews 10:26-27) The secret sins of the church are being exposed and God is beginning to shake all things.
You cannot say you love and follow Jesus if your willfully committing Fornication (sex outside of marriage), committing adultery, having homosexual encounters or involving yourself in any kind of sexual perversion. And a big one is Pornography. Watching porno is mentally and emotionally committing fornication, adultery, homosexuality, and a laundry list of other sexual perversions. The addiction it brings is as bad as heroin on your brain. And it’s no longer just men as women are now into pornography greatly as recent studies show. The percentages have dramatically increased among women who are addicted to pornography. Don’t be fooled by the lies of the devil, your soul is in grave danger of hell if you don’t repent, seek God and stop your wicked ways.
Why do you think Churches are dead with no revivals, no moving of Gods Holy Spirit, no miracles and no critical teaching? Because there is great sin in our Churches. It’s estimated over fifty percent of men and pastors have an addiction with pornography. The number two issue ( love of money being #1) is sexual immorality, not just among Christians but the entire nations of people. Satan will tempt you sexually almost above anything else, but you must overcome this onslaught on your soul and the souls of your families.
Church, you must be sanctified to see heaven, don’t be fooled by preachers and teachers who refuse to speak the truth of Gods word calling for all men and women everywhere to repent and turn from their wicked ways. If you do God is merciful and will forgive you of any sin if your serious and mean it from the heart. A righteous man (remember who’s righteous? A believer) will fall seven times and get up again the bible says. There is a huge difference in “falling into temptation” verses “sinning willfully”, stop the sinning willfully! We all sin but not all sin willfully. You’ll never be able to overcome by your own strength and will, never. You must totally submit with a repentant heart to God and ask His forgiveness. Get help from Christian sources if needed, get out of your sinful rut and live for God and pursue your sanctification or you’ll never see the Lord.
Here is a great verse for you to memorize and confess over and over: ” For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under the law but under grace.” ( Romans 6:14) America has lost her moral compass, “Therefore come out from their midst and be separate says the Lord and do not touch what is unclean; and I will welcome you.” ( 2 Corinthians 6:17) Anyone who thinks they can enter heaven without sanctification is deceived. God is Holy and a consuming fire and is no respecter of men, no one gets a free pass on sexual immorality..
