Ezekiel 16:15 “…you trusted in your own beauty, played the harlot because of your fame, and poured out your harlotry on everyone passing by who would have it”
Ezekiel 16:33 “men make payment to all harlots, but you made your payments to all your lovers, and hired them to come to you from all around for your harlotry”
In 2012, sex is a small issue…. it does not bother anybody that people are engaged in fornication with whoever they fancy at that moment in time.
According to the Bible…. it is serious SIN…. a person cannot grow spiritually, have a meaningful relationship with God or even enjoy the kind of HAPPY life that God intended for them if they are going from person to person in search of sexual pleasure.
Demons gain control in people lives through sex with other demon-infested people…. and people believe that God is a spoil-sport who wants them to live a miserable and dull life.
Psalm 100 tells us ” Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting and His truth endures to all generations”
Why are we to be joyful and happy before the LORD ?
Psalm 145:16 “You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing”
We are to be joyful and happy because there is NOTHING that we really need that God cannot give us…. and He IS concerned with our welfare !
The problem is that people have lots of WANTS and LUSTS that are BAD FOR THEM…… and after they get these “wants” and “lusts” satisfied it brings only TEMPORARY relief….. and eventually they become even more miserable than before, because they are overcome with a “fresh set of” wants and lusts…. with no end in sight !
NEVER SATISFIED…. that is the condition of all those who are not living in fellowship with God.
Money, sex, food, pleasure, entertainment, friends…. NEVER SATISFIED….. no matter what you get…. even if you get everything you ever hoped for…… there are a whole new set of lusts, cravings, wants and desires waiting for you when you reach your eventual “goal”, “dream” or “ambition”.
It may sound silly to you at this time…… but mark my words….. GOD (through the person of Jesus Christ and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit) IS the ONLY ultimate SATISFACTION !
