“Human ‘Sexuality’ – 201”…Blog. [2/?]

“Human ‘Sexuality’ – 201”…Blog. [2/?]

*** (Luke 16:13) No servant [gr. Slave] = can serve two masters. = For = either he will hate the one = and = love the other, = or else = he will hold to the one = and = despise the other. = You cannot = serve God = and mammon.

*** (Romans 6:16) Do you = not know = that to ‘whom’ = you = yield yourselves = as slaves for ‘obedience’, = you are = slaves to ‘him’ = whom you ‘obey’; = whether it is of ‘sin’ to death, = or = of ‘obedience’ = to righteousness.

Continuing on… with this difficult discussion, one must determine; “IF” they truly belong to Christ Jesus… or… “IF”, that is just a preference of conversation? Only you know yourself, and what your “Agenda” really is, especially when it comes to your “Human Sexuality!” Have you ever read an ‘on like’ profile, where the man or woman says… “In a Relationship?” I though the only definition was… “Married or Single?” Can you remember when two were living together outside of marriage it was called… “Shacking Up?” Oh how the language has changed to accommodate… “Sexuality!”

“Conviction or Preference – 101”…Blog.

*** (Colossians 3:5-8) So put to ‘death’ = your worldly ‘impulses’: = ‘sexual sin’, = ‘impurity’, = ‘passion’, = evil desire, = and greed (which is idolatry).
(Col 3:6) It is because of these things = that = the wrath of God = is coming on those = who are disobedient. [1Corinthians 11:30]
(Col 3:7) You used = to behave = like them = when you were living among them.
(Col 3:8) But now = you must also get rid of anger, = wrath, = malice, = slander, = obscene language from your mouth, = and ‘all’ = such sins.

*** (Gal 5:19-21) Now the works of the flesh = are obvious: = sexual immorality, = impurity, = promiscuity,
(Gal 5:20) idolatry, = witchcraft, = hatred, = rivalry, = jealously, = outbursts of anger, = quarrels, = conflicts, = factions,
(Gal 5:21) envy, = murder, = drunkenness, = wild partying, = and things like = that I am telling you now, = as I have told you in the past, = that ‘people’ = who ‘practice’ such things = will ‘not’ inherit = the kingdom of God.

*** (1Timothy 5:24) The sins of some people = are obvious, = going ahead of them = to judgment. = The sins = of others = follow them there.

*** (2Corinthians 7:1) Since we have these promises, = dear friends, = let us ‘cleanse’ ourselves = from everything = that ‘contaminates’ = body = and spirit = by perfecting ‘holiness’ = in the fear of God.

Our society… and that or ‘many’ other cultures… makes justification for their “Sexual Promiscuities”. The ‘Entertainment Industry’… puts forth a “Reference Point of ‘Unbridled’ Sexuality”… that is in ‘direct’ opposition to God’s; the God of the Bible and His Holy Word! You ‘say’ you Love Jesus…? You ‘say’ He is your Savior & Lord… ‘But Are’… your thoughts of “Sexuality”… and especially of any “Sexual Relations”… in direct ‘opposition’ to His Holy Word…? Does your dress… show off your ‘Sexuality’; accentuating various ‘parts’ of your “Sexuality”…? Do you ‘approve’ of the “Human Sexuality”; you see portrayed in… “Movies, Videos & TV”…?

*** (1Peter 1:13-17) Therefore, = ‘prepare’ your minds for action, = ‘keep’ a clear head, = and = set your hope ‘completely’ = on the ‘grace’ to be given you = when Jesus Christ is revealed.
(1Pe 1:14) As ‘obedient’ children, = ‘do not’ = be shaped by the desires = that you once had = in your ‘ignorance’.
(1Pe 1:15) Instead, = just as the One = Who called you is holy, = be holy = in ‘every’ aspect of your life.
(1Pe 1:16) For it is written, = "You ‘must’ be holy, = ‘because’ = I am holy."
(1Pe 1:17) If you call "Father [Abba]" = the One [God] = Who judges everyone = ‘impartially’ = according to what he has done, = you ‘must’ live = in = the fear of the Lord = as long as you are strangers here.

*** (2Corinthians 6:14-18) Do ‘not’ = be ‘unequally’ yoked = together = with unbelievers; = for what fellowship does righteousness have = with lawlessness? = And = what partnership does light have = with darkness?
(2Cor 6:15) And = what agreement does Christ have = with Belial [Satan]? = Or = what part does a believer have = with an unbeliever?
(2Cor 6:16) And = what agreement does a temple [Romans 8:9] of God have = with idols? = For you are = the temple = of the living God, = as God has said, = "I will dwell in them = and = walk among them; = and = I will be their God, = and = they shall be = My people."
(2Cor 6:17) Therefore = come out from among them = and = be separated, = says the Lord, = and do not touch the unclean thing. = And = I will receive you
(2Cor 6:18) and = I will be a Father to you, = and = you shall be = My sons and daughters, = says the Lord Almighty.

What about ‘You’…? Do you have the mindset and obedience to the Holy Word of God; that says that… “SEX is ‘Only’ for Marriage”…? Do you ‘fantasize’ having “Sexual Relations”… with someone that is… “NOT–Your Marriage Partner”…? IF you find yourself doing so; you have fallen back into that ‘Worldly Mindset’ of… “Loving the Word!” You ‘cannot’ Love Jesus and His Holy Word… and then ‘love’ that worldly, “Human Sexuality”… at the same time. You ‘cannot’ serve; “Two Masters!”

*** (Romans 12:1-2) I therefore ‘urge’ you, = brothers, = in view of God's ‘mercies’, = to offer your ‘bodies’ = as ‘living’ sacrifices = that are ‘holy’ = and ‘pleasing’ = to God, = for this ‘is’ = the ‘reasonable way’ = for you = to ‘worship’ [God].
(Rom 12:2) Do ‘not’ = be conformed to this world, = but = ‘continually’ = ‘be transformed’ = by the ‘renewing’ of your minds = so that you may be able = ‘to determine’ = what God's will is = what is proper, = pleasing, = and perfect.

*** (Philippians 2:5) Let = this mind = be in you, = which was also = in Christ Jesus:

*** (James 1:22) Keep on being = ‘doers’ of the Word, and = ‘not’ merely hearers = who = ‘deceive’ themselves.

*** (Luke 6:46) "Why do you = keep calling Me [Jesus] = 'Lord, = Lord,' = but ‘don't do’ = what I [Jesus] = tell you?

Is there a “Key”… to test your ‘attitude’ about: “Human Sexuality”…? There certainly is and it is as simple as… “Who do ‘you’… “Love?” Who do you “Worship”… with your “Heart & Mind & Soul”…? Who do you ‘please’; with your “Deepest Thoughts and Actions”…? No, it is not who you ‘are’, in front of others… but “Who you ‘really’ Are”… in your heart of hearts! Whom do you… “Really Worship?” “Self” or “Jesus”…?

*** (Romans 1:25) They = ‘exchanged’ = “God's Truth” = for a “Lie” = and = ‘worshipped’ and ‘served’ = the creation [mankind] = ‘rather’ than the “Creator” [God], = Who = is blessed forever. Amen.

*** (2Corinthians 10:3-6) Of course, = we are living in the flesh, = but = we do not fight = in a fleshly way.
(2Co 10:4) For = the weapons of our warfare = are not those of the flesh. = Instead, = they have the power of God = to demolish strongholds. = We tear down arguments
(2Co 10:5) and = every proud obstacle = that is raised = ‘against’ = the knowledge [Word] of God, = taking ‘every’ thought = ‘captive’ = in order to = ‘obey’ Christ.
(2Co 10:6) We are ready = to punish every act of disobedience = when = your obedience is complete [1John 1:5-to-10].

*** (Proverbs 28:13) He who = ‘covers’ his sins = shall ‘not’ = be blessed; = but = whoever = confesses = and = ‘leaves’ [forsakes] them = shall have mercy.

This “Battle”… between your ideas of, “Human Sexuality”… and the “Holiness of God”; is fought in your mind; and the choice is always yours! God has given you “Free Will” to choose. Right now, you have chosen to read this blog. Or perhaps after the first one, you chose; ‘Not To.’ That human conflict will always be there… in that ‘struggle; in our “Thought Lives”… to choose God’s Way; or the way of… “Worldly Thinking!” The world will ‘always’ reflect, its rebellion against the Holy Word of God; and Satan is right there helping that ‘Though Process’… to have you take a stand; against the Holy Word of God!

*** (Genesis 3:1) Now the serpent = was more cunning = than any beast of the field = which Jehovah God had made. = And he said = to the woman, = Is it [Really] so = that God has said, = You shall ‘not’ = eat of every tree of the garden?

*** (1John 5:18-19) We know = that the person who has been = born again from God = does not go on sinning. = Rather, = the Son of God protects them, = and = the evil one = cannot harm them.
(1Jn 5:19) We know = that we are from God = and = that the ‘whole world’ = lies ‘under’ the control = of the evil one [Satan].

*** (Luke 4:5-8) The devil also took Him [Jesus] = to a high place = and showed Him = all the kingdoms of the world = in an instant.
(Luke 4:6) He said to Jesus, = "I [Satan] = will give you = ‘all’ this authority = and = the ‘glory’ of these kingdoms. = For = it has = been ‘given’ to me [Satan], = and = I [Satan] = give it to ‘anyone’ = I please.
(Luke 4:7) So if You [Jesus] = will worship me, = ‘all’ this = will be yours."
(Luke 4:8) But Jesus answered him [Satan], = "It is written, = 'You must worship = the Lord your God = and = serve = ‘only’ Him.'"

Once “Again”… “Who do ‘You’, Worship”…? Is it the Worlds ‘definition’ of “Human Sexuality”… Or is it of the… “Holiness of God”… found in your ‘Obedience’; to His Holy Word…?

Continued next blog.

Thanks, In Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 20:9.
