Sex And The City
“Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience.”
– Colossians 3:5-6 (NIV)
Past civilizations of man that had been extinct have all been as a result of Sexual Offenses. Be it Pre-diluvian era or even the iron-clad Roman Empire.
Since the days of Noah, humans have misplaced pleasure for sexual gratification, drunkenness and other self-indulgent acts of their own choosing.
Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually… – Genesis 6:5 (NIV)
According to a school of thought, the act of “wickedness of the human race” in the scriptural context above was a state of sexual perversion including indiscriminate marital alliances and inappropriate sexual behavior.
Even godly men (the ‘sons of God’) slept with whoever they liked outside God’s order and even had children by them.
It is these acts of Sexual intercourse outside the precinct of God’s laid down order that has produced such social problems as prostitution, abortion, rape, homosexual practices and bestiality (in extreme cases) that humanity battles today.
For its lure and a false promise of pleasure, Sex has become the Achille’s heel of the city and thus the biggest bait of Satan yet. Unfortunately, after the instinctive and mindless act, the sobered individual suddenly realizes that only Jesus satisfies! Nothing else does.
As surely as God did in the days of Noah, so it shall also be in our day. God will not overlook the sin of sexual disorder. He will judge it!
The only way of escape for humans is to repent, accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour then put to death all cravings for inordinate sex. Failure to make this much-needed heart change is the reason that the wrath of God is coming on the children of disobedience!
In Jesus Name I declare I take authority over and subdue every spirit of seduction and sexual perversion in this city.
I break the hold of sin, most especially sexual sin over my life and my community, church, and nation. The light of God has risen upon me. The glory of God overshadows me.
May the true knowledge of God fill the earth as the waters cover the sea. In Jesus Name Amen.
