RESTORING YOUR SEXUALITY 24 – Sexually deviant behaviour cont’d


PORNOGRAPHY

Pornography also creates sexual imprinting. It creates desires for certain body types, for perverted sexual practices and usually leads to fantasy and masturbation.

So let’s talk about pornography.

What is it? Pornography is anything that you can visually see either in magazines, books, movies, videos, on the internet, or computer games that depict other people in a sexual nature.

It can be simply showing nakedness or other people involved in sexual acts. It can also be what you hear through things like music, movies or videos.

Pornography allows you to be sexually stimulated without the responsibilities or risks of relationship.

A center-fold in a magazine or newspaper cannot reject you. Watching a video scene does not take any effort on your part. Relationship and intimacy takes work, sacrifice, commitment andcommunication. All of these can be avoided through the use of pornography. Usually at the root of pornography issues, you will also find issues with intimacy and a fear of rejection.

Most pornography is done with models and actors. The people have been air brushed or made up. Special lighting is used. Because they are hired, they can select only the most beautiful or the most handsome.

Pornography can create dissatisfaction with the reality of life. Most bodies are not that perfect. No one looks that good all the time. People who have been imprinted sexually with pornography are usually never happy and satisfied in a normal covenant sexual relationship unless they are healed.

Also, pornography many times depicts perverted sexual acts. It creates sexual imprinting and desires that makes our marriage partner uncomfortable. Many times people go outside of the marriage relationship to have their sexual needs met, because they have perverted needs from pornographic imprinting in their lives.

Right now internet pornography is rampant. The reason is there is less of a fear of being caught. If you have to buy a magazine or go to a strip bar, there is a risk of being seen. In the privacy of my home office, I minimize the risk of being discovered.

Most internet pornography is owned and operated by the Mafia.
The Mafia is controlled by major spirits of lawlessness, greed, control, addictions, and perversion. You are bowing down to those spirits when you participate with Internet pornography.

If you are having problems with internet pornography, it is important to get protection programs on your computer at work and at home that can stop access to pornography sites.

Make sure someone else installs it and knows the password. Don’t just put it on and have the ability to bypass it.

It is a lie to say I can look at pornography now but when I get married I will stop. It will still affect you.

You will either keep looking at it and hide it because of your shame or you will be frustrated and resentful that your covenant relationship is not meeting those wrong desires that are in you. Either way it will produce bad fruit in your relationship.

In dealing with sexual sins, I always pray for the impartation of the fear of the Lord.

Men must have the revelation that whether it is a picture, a video or a live woman, they are violating one of God’s daughters.

Now the woman may not have the revelation that she is a daughter of the King but that makes her no less of one in the Lord’s eyes. We serve a jealous God. How would you as a father want your daughter to be treated? How much more would the Lord want you to respect all women.

I declare right now that the fear of the Lord would rest upon you. 

Regardless of the woman’s own exploitation of herself, godly men have a responsibility to cover and protect these women by not using them for their own sexual needs.

Many times we repent because we have hurt our spouse,  sinned  before God, but it also needs to come because of the people we have exploited.

They may have only been a center-fold in a magazine to you at the time, but they have to become a person in order for you stop acting out.

I can just see Jesus taking a cloth and covering that young woman. May God have mercy on you for doing that exact opposite.

If you have been imprinted by masturbation or pornography or any of the other topics discussed in any of these posts,  make sure you walk through the ministry processes coming up later in this series.
