Flee from Sexual Immorality

“Run [flee, escape, shun] from sexual immorality! Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the fornicator sins against his own body”  (1 Corinthians 6:18).  

As many believers in this nation seek to RETURN to the God of Isra’el, they must first REPENT from their sins. This is what RETURN actually means.

Sin is sin whether young, middle aged, or old. Sin is sin and it separates anyone who enjoins with it from having a vibrant relationship with Yeshua. Immorality is immorality and it is wicked. Fornication, sex without being married,  is no different from the sexual sins of adultery (sex outside of marriage) or homosexuality (sex with your same gender).  It is impossible to stand against one sexual sin, for example, homosexuality, and be involved in another.  That is having a divided heart and will incur guilt (Hosea 6:2).  

Yeshua gave his life, poured out his blood, to cleanse us from ALL sin, including the guilt that goes with it.   Sha’ul desired with a righteous jealousy to present those he was teaching as a ‘pure virgin’ to the Messiah. However, he feared their minds might be seduced away from a ‘pure and simple’ devotion to Yeshua just as Havah (Eve) was deceived by the serpent (2 Corinthians 11:2-3).  Has this not happened over the past several generations? Have we not been seduced to believe ‘living in sin’ is now okay by being taught certain Truths aren’t for today? Have we become so complacent we cannot speak Truth into wounded, guilty hearts in order to set them free?

As a nation, we murder the innocent, the unborn in the womb, but as the Body of Messiah, we condone the very sexual sin that leads to such murder. We not only allow men and women to live together, even in leadership roles,  we even approve of it because of a watered down message of repentance and embracing the ‘tolerance’ view of the world.   God judges His people first and He doesn’t tolerate sin.   If we desire truth and integrity within our nation and leaders, then we must desire and embrace Truth in our churches as well.

Believers must turn from that which God calls sin.  Both men and women must repent from making their bridal gown filthy, dirty, foul nasty through immoral relationships and return to God and restore our light for the world.   If immorality continues to reign in the Body of Messiah as it so rampantly does, the lampstand of the church will most definitely be removed and the darkness will overtake the light.

“My brothers [and sisters], if one of you wanders from the truth, and someone causes him to return, you should know that whoever turns a sinner from his wandering path will save him from death and cover many sins” (James 5:19-20). 

We do have hope. Cause someone to return to God. Challenge them with a mustard seed of faith to leave their immoral ways. Help them to escape from death and cover their many sins. This is the work of Yeshua. This is the work of the Ruach HaKodesh. This is the work He has called us to do.
