The Poisonous Fruit Of the Flesh, Fornication

Fornication


It is a pretty simple concept. Is it not?

Fornication

"Sexual Intercourse between people not married to each other."

It doesn't matter how old you are. It doesn't matter who you are. It doesn't matter how much money you have. It doesn't matter if you are Black, White, Purple with Pink Polka Dots. It doesn't matter if you are Male or Female. It doesn't matter if you call yourself Gay of Straight. It doesn't matter what MAN says. It doesn't matter what year it is, nor does it mater if it is the Norm.

Fornication

"Sexual Intercourse between people not married to each other."

Now of course, if you consider yourself Gay, you are already living in Sin, but that is a whole other Sermon. But the concept is pretty simple to understand. Yes. We are going to talk about Sex. So if you have Children that will hear, or read, this message, you may want to be prepared.

Fornication is the second Work of the Flesh, or "Poisonous Fruit of the Flesh," listed. The first was Adultery. With by the way, is ALSO Fornication. Sex with someone ELSE that you are not Married to.

Why is this such a big deal? Seriously. It's 2016. Nudity is everywhere. From our TVs, Internet, to our Beaches, and Shopping Centers. You want to see Naked People, you do not have to go to too much trouble to see them. With all this Nudity, comes fantasizing, experimentation, and even the quest of pleasure. We have even attempted to call it anything other than Sex.

Remember a former President? It depends on what the word IS is? Back when I was in school, boys would get nervous, holding a girl's hand at the School Dance. Now? Now they are having Oral Sex, and Hand Manipulation Orgasmic Competitions in Middle Schools. Both at the Dances and even in the Classrooms. More and more Teachers are being arrested, for having Sex with their Students.

There is no longer ANY, even in our Churches, NO, stigmatization whatsoever, to our young people moving out of their Homes and moving in with others, living as Married People with all the benefits, {Having Sex} before actually committing to Marriage.

We pass out Condoms in Schools, after all the are going to do it anyway.. You know, that is like saying we have to pass out free guns. People are going to Rob Banks anyway. Let's give them a gun, and teach them how to best Rob the Banks, to attempt to keep them and other's safe. We have all kinds of Educational Programs to teach about disease, and how to seek treatment. We teach that there are all kinds of ways to prevent Pregnancies while enjoying Sex. We tell our kids, if they want to have sex with the same sex as they are, they will never get Pregnant. They will just get the pleasure.

You want a GUARANTEE. I have a in depth, comprehensive, scientifically proven, no question about it, ABSOLUTE answer for you to NEVER get an STD. To NEVER get Pregnant. To NEVER have to worry about all those chemicals in your Body to ward off unwanted Pregnancies. Nor will you EVER have to worry about Abortion. Ready?? I know it may be difficult to understand. But I'll go slow.

Do....not.... have... Sex. I know, I know. When someone talks about Abstinence, they are considered an Old Fuddy Duddy. Out of touch with Reality. It is just not productive to tell people not to have Sex. You know they are going to anyway. It's not me saying it. It is simple Truth.

When you go into a courting process, one of your top priority questions you should have, is the person you are interested in, also a Virgin? If not, even if you wait, as well you should, until you are Married, if they are not a Virgin, then when you DO have Sex with them on your Wedding Night, you are also having Sex with everyone they ever have had. If they have a STD {Sexually Transmitted Disease}, or they have had an Abortion, you are now at risk of the same, and you are now involved in all that emotional baggage.
"Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge." {Hebrews 13:4}
Marriage, is Ordained by, and a gift from, God. He intends for you to be pure, and clean, entering into it. Both Men and Women are suppose to keep themselves whole, a Virgin, until after they Wed. Then, Sex, is not only blessed by, but commanded by God.
"The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control." {1 Corinthians 7:3-5}
One, God LOVES Sex. He created it. It is the closest, most pleasurable, experience, two people can share. It makes each of the people involved feel GREAT. This is also why Adultery is the first listed, and also the 7th Commandment. Two, "so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control."

How many times have you heard those caught in Adultery, use the excuse, "We {Them and their Spouse} not longer have Sex?" A Married couple stop sharing this Gift from God, and then some Handsome young man, or Beautiful young woman, start complimenting, flattering, now a days, throwing themselves at one of the Married couple, one falls for the temptation..

However, we are not talking about Marriage. We just covered Adultery. No, although Sex IS a Gift from God, it IS for Married couples. Before you are Married, you should abstain from it. How serious is God about this? Well, in Revelations,,
"But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” {Revelation 21:8}
This is why the Bible tells us over and over again to abstain from Fornication. To practice Abstinence. It's not just Sex. It's not "no big deal." It's not old fashioned, out of date, or something to be laughed at. It is not harmless. It can lead to fights and physical harm. It is the number one source for Blackmail. It leads to Sickness and Disease, and even Death. As with all Sin, the end result is Death. Perhaps, the most important reason, as with all Sin, it can lead to separation from God Himself.
"Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God; for you know what commandments we gave you through the Lord Jesus.

For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God;"
{1 Thessalonians 4:1-5}
Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
{2 Corinthians 13}

Until next time, be blessed, be a blessing, and Jesus IS Lord!
