Not too long ago I was unable to sleep late one night. I begin to pray and ask God what He wanted to say to me. I prayed about numerous things and just listened to what Holy Spirit wanted to tell me. I believe I clearly heard Him say “masturbation is idol worship”. I immediately asked, “What?….please explain.”.
What I heard in my spirit was….when I or anyone chooses to masturbate they are engaging in an active worship of the person or image or lust in their heart (covetousness). Colossian 3:5 “Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.”
Also the penis becomes the tool of worship. So then I asked, “So Lord, if there is worship and the penis is the object by which that worship is accomplished. What is the sacrifice?” Immediately I heard, “Your seed.” The seed of my ejaculated semen is the sacrifice. Gulp!….that made me pause for reflection.
So the next time the thought comes to mind…..think about it. Is it idol worship? Are you doing something that honors Him or displeases Him?
Also I’ve begun a discussion group just for men. We will talk about the things men don’t want to talk about…..You know what I mean? Frank discussions about lust, pornography, sexual addiction and related issues. Here’ s the link if you’re interested www.allenwilliamsjr.com/men. You may login anonymously.
By the blood of Jesus!!! Let’s come together and bring down this stronghold and secret lie that is hiding in the Church.
