In part one of The Dangers Of Sex Outside Of Marriage, we realised that demons manipulate human sexual appetites to ensnare people into binding covenants.
These evil covenants are the cause of extreme penalties that include death, confusion and even financial hardship.
‘If there is a man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, one who commits adultery with his friend’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.
Leviticus 20:10 KJV
“If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.”
Deuteronomy 22:28-29 KJV
The evil spirits know the penalties of sin in God’s laws and use this against humanity. I have just cited two of such biblical laws above as an example.
So what must we do to be free from this type of bondage?
Freedom from Sexual Danger
I am going to highlight three steps to sexual freedom that will help you.
If you have never been engaged in anything sexual physically, but have been having sexual dreams, daydreams and intense thoughts these steps will still help you to be free from the dangers of sex outside marriage.
When I say repent the type of repentance I speak of covers two levels.
In terms of personal repentance, this requires us to ask the Lord for forgiveness. Then we need to do all we can to stop all actions associated with the illicit sexual behaviour.
“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.”
Proverbs 28:13 KJV
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:”
Acts 17:30 KJV
In the book of Daniel, we see an interesting prayer, which gives us a clue on how to break generational curses. We have to repent of the sins of our ancestors.
Daniel shows us that when we repent on a generational level, we need to ask the Lord’s forgiveness for sexual sins committed by our ancestors.
“Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father’s house have sinned.”
Nehemiah 1:6 KJV
“O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.”
Daniel 9:8 KJV
This type of sin is called ‘iniquity.’ Which causes penalties to be handed down to us because our forefathers continued in lawlessness.
“Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,”
Deuteronomy 5:9 KJV
Sexual sins, both personal and ancestral may include rape, incest, adultery, pornography, sexual impurity, (this includes masturbation) lust and fornication.
In many cases where something seems to be obsessively driving a sexual appetite, it is evident that this passion stems from something unnatural.
Many people have asked the Lord repeatedly to forgive their sexual sin, but then resentfully engage in the same thing they asked forgiveness for shortly after. It is as if there was no victory achieved through attempts to repent.
The key to freedom from the dangers of sex outside of marriage is to seek deliverance.
When something drives our sexual appetites, this indicates that an unseen entity is involved, that uses our appetites and desires to satisfy itself.
“Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.”
Psalms 107:6 KJV
“But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.”
Obadiah 1:17 KJV
It is for this reason that we should seek for a Spirit-filled minister with experience in casting out demons.
If you are unable to find such a minister I will post some prayers for self-deliverance that you will be able to say yourself and believe the Lord for your freedom.
Fill yourself with the word
One of the final reasons why many people do not remain free is because they are not full of the word.
“Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.”
Psalms 119:9 KJV
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
Romans 12:2 KJV
Just as we need to eat food and exercise, so it is that we need to also do so spiritually. Daily bible reading and meditation on the word will help purify our old way of thinking, strengthen our spirit man and increase the desire to be holy even as our father is holy.
Commit yourself to a daily bible reading habit, this will help purify your mind and strengthen your spirit.
As you follow these steps, you will find it easier to be free from the dangers of sex outside of marriage.
In the next article look out for prayers for deliverance. Bless you!
