Are you living under a curse of LUST?
Lust is stalking you everywhere you go, waiting for an opportunity to whisper it’s lies and destruction into your life. It’s ready to gloat and condemn you as you fall for them, lust opposes the truth of God and wants nothing more than to see you living a broken life.
– Are you fanning the flames of Lust? –
Lust, one of the seven deadly sins, small word but a big problem. This sin will destroy a person’s life and marriage, career and reputation like nothing else. All sexual sin begins with a little lust, and will open the door to all kinds of perverseness, wickedness and heartache. The one who surrenders to lust will never be fully satisfied until climax or self-satisfaction is achieved and still this is only temporary. Godly men, who would never physically hurt or harm their wives, will abuse and defile the marriage bed in order to relieve this evil desire through selfish sex. Lust doesn’t become a problem overnight, we choose what we plant – a lustful thought here, a lustful glance over there and before you know it you have fed it so much that it soon becomes a beast, controlling and guiding your decisions in life. So many believers lust after the flesh every day and wonder why they aren’t reaping holiness.
Mortifying lust will be one of the biggest battles that we will face in our lifetime. Any man with a pulse in his body knows how hard it is to deal with lust, in fact any man who hasn’t struggled with lust needs to check his body for a pulse. The chances are that in the past you have tried to break free from lust and failed. Lust breeds and thrives on isolation like a leech, lust attaches itself to the soul and sucks it dry. Lust ruins your relationship with God and others. It darkens the heart, robs us of our spiritual vitality and leaves a spiritual vacuum that the demonic are ready to fill. Lust isn’t interested in sex, doesn’t even want it, if it were you would be happy with what you have. Instead, lust is looking for the forbidden, driving you down the fast lane to destruction taking you further than you were ever prepared to go.
You can’t negotiate or reason with lust or hope to meet it half way. It’s an “all or nothing”, “take it or leave it” attitude. You can’t run away from lust either. It’s there following you, stalking you, watching you, testing you, probing you, ready to ensnare you wherever you turn; waiting for an opportunity to bring you down.
The trinity of lust is Me, Myself and I. The mantra of lust is “I want it, I need it, I must have it NOW”. Never satisfied, never content – like an itch without a scratch.
The power of lust is whispered through the lie and the promise; guaranteeing that satisfaction and fulfilment can be found in everything except God. Always urging you on, promising that this time will be better than the last, nobody will ever find out; basically promising us what God can’t. The only way to fight lust is with the promises of God, the bible has over 7000 of them. Lets take a look at the most popular lies that lust promotes and the truth that scripture reveals click here to go to The Lies That Lust Promotes
– Lust comes at a Price –
Lust has probably being responsible for bringing down more Church Leaders, missionaries, godly men and women and caused more division among congregations, ruined more ministries than anything else. How many men and women were once called to extraordinary ministries and lost their anointing, quenched the spirit and forfeited their inheritance for another hour of lust filled pornography, adultery or something worse? Lust is stealing the attention of men and women away from the plans that God has for them, you are probably reading this knowing that God is calling you into a greater experience with Him but you can’t seem to conqueror this one little thing in your life.
Guys, I’m not going to teach you all how to suck eggs, each one of you have experienced lust falling prey to its lies and felt the devastation that it leaves behind.
Gal 6 7 do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. 8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
Lust will slowly open you up to spirits that want to complete the job but in the most horrific ways. Spirits of lust cannot be satisfied by sex or any other means! They will drive a person to commit acts or do sexual acts they would never think possible in order to get relief. It is a supernatural evil a demonic sex drive that taunts day & night, and every waking moment relentlessly, causing severe pain if not relieved. Demons of lust will tear the flesh of innocent infants, babies, children, youth, anyone or anything (even animals) to penetrate and reach a climax.
We have all sat and listened in shock and repulsion to the news headlines as they carry more and more sickening stories of sexual abuse or murder, thinking that it can’t be real, but it is and it was probably driven by lust. Deception, apathy, silence and isolation are Satan’s greatest weapons in this battle. If we continue to play ostrich with this issue more men and more families will be taken out.
The guy trapped in the spiral of pornography will know that he needs help, but ashamed of confessing what his desire for lust has led him into. If you are serious about conquering lust, start today and let the Holy Spirit break the chains of lust over your life. Click here to go to prayer
