Flip the Coin
Exodus 20:14 HRB, “You shall not commit adultery.” This commandment sounds simple enough, but how many humans can live a lifetime without breaking this commandment? The 7th commandment covers ALL categories of sexual perversion, because every unlawful sex act is adultery against a human and against Yahovah Himself.
Let’s cut to the chase and see what the end result is for those who break any of Yahovah’s commandments. Yeshua was quoting from Psalm 6:8 when He gave this teaching in Matthew 7:21-23 HRB, “It will not be that just everyone who says to Me, Master, Master, will enter into the kingdom of Heaven, but the ones who do the will [10 commandments, summarized into Yeshua’s 2] of My Father in Heaven. 22Many will say to Me in that day, Master, Master, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name do many works of power? 23And then I will declare to them, from everlasting, I never knew you; “depart from Me, those working lawlessness! [Torahlessness!]“” Who is Yeshua talking about here? Well, just take the verses at there plain literal language and it sure looks like Yeshua is talking about charismatic Christians!!
Torah teaches that every matter must be established by two or three witnesses, so let’s add the second witness. Revelation 3:14-19 HRB, “And to the messenger of the congregation of Laodicea, write: These things says the Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Head of the creation of Yahovah: 15I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that you were cold, or hot. 16So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am about to vomit you out of My mouth. 17Because you say, I am rich, and I am made rich, and I have need of nothing, and do not know that you are miserable and a wanderer and poor and blind and naked. 18I advise you to buy from Me gold having been fired by fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, and your shame and nakedness may not be revealed. And anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19“I, as many as I love, I rebuke and I chasten.” Be zealous, then, and repent.” You know, it takes all of about one nanosecond to repent of a sin, so how long will you wait for some so-called Christian to repent of a sin of the flesh? Yahovah cannot work with a lukewarm, wishy-washy so-called believer. Get the sin out, or get into your sin until you are utterly sinful, then Yahovah can work with you, but don’t play Yahovah or His children for fools, you are the fool, if you choose to wallow in sin, any sin. From the teaching in Revelation 3, in Yeshua’s own red letter words, you see that He is talking to someone who is supposedly already in Messiah. You don’t vomit out something that is outside of you, only something that is inside of you. If you die in a state of lukewarmness or Torahlessness, you will burn in the lake of fire forever. The heresy of once saved always saved is a lie of HaSatan. I believe this teaching is very much pointed at 21st century Christians.
Spiritual and physical adultery stems from the root sin of lust. Matthew 5:27-30 HRB, “You have heard that it was said to the ancients “Do not commit adultery.” 28But I say to you, Everyone looking at a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29But if your right eye offends you, take it out and throw it from you, for it is profitable to you that one of your members should perish and all your body not be thrown into Hell. 30And if your right hand causes you to offend, cut it off and throw it from you, for it is profitable to you that one of your members should perish and all your body not be thrown into Hell.” Pornography is committing adultery in your heart. Notice, Yeshua did not mince words about this matter. You continue in the sin of lust, you will burn in Hell.
Mark 4:18-19 HRB, “And those which were sown into a thorny place are they who hear the word, 19And the cares of the world and the deception of riches and the rest of the other lusts enter in and choke the word and it becomes without fruit.” Pornography is lust. Pornography leads to all the other sexual perversions like physical adultery, child molestation, homosexuality, bestiality, etc. You may wonder where Yeshua received all his sexual perversion teachings from, well, read all of Leviticus 18, but here is just a sampling, Leviticus 18:19-25 HRB, “And you shall not draw near to uncover the nakedness of a woman in her menstrual impurity. 20And you shall not give your semen to your neighbor’s wife by lying with her, to be unclean with her. 21And you shall not give your seed to pass them through to Molech, nor shall you pollute the name of your Divine One; I am Yahovah. 22And you shall not lie with a male as one lies with a woman; it is detestable. 23And you shall not give your semen with any animal, for uncleanness with it. And a woman shall not stand before an animal to lie down with it; it is a shameful mixing. 24Do not defile yourself with all these, for with all these the nations have been defiled, which I am casting out before you; 25and the land is defiled, and I will visit its iniquity on it; and the land is vomiting out those living in it;” All young Hebrew talmidim are instructed from the Book of Leviticus FIRST! There is good reason for such a priority.
Lust is deceitful. The devil introduced lust to humanity. John 8:44 HRB, “You are of the Devil as father, and the lusts of your father you desire to do. That one was a murderer from the beginning, and he has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own, because he is a liar, and the father of it.” The Apostle Paul challenges us to control ourselves, 1 Corinthians 9:27 HRB, “but I conquer and subdue my body, so that, by no chance, when I have preached to others, will I myself be disapproved.” We literally have no time to entertain sin in our life. 1 Corinthians 10:6-7 HRB, “But these things became examples for us, so that we may not be lusting after evil, even as those indeed lusted. 7Neither be idolaters, even as some of them, as it has been written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.”” Pornography is presented to us today as entertainment, but trust me, that is only part of the deception to addict humans and lead them straight to hell. Lust and pornography must be treated as an addiction. A person who claims that watching pornography is not like being a child molester, rapist, or murderer, is only fooling and deceiving himself. One must quickly learn to hate sin as Yahovah hates it.
Read all of Ephesians 4, but again here’s just a part, Ephesians 4:17-24 HRB, “Therefore, I say this, and testify in the Master, that you no longer walk even as also the rest of the nations walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18having been darkened by their intellect, being alienated from the life of Yahovah because they have no knowledge, which is because of the hardness of their heart, 19who, having cast off all feeling, surrendered themselves up to lust, and to the practice of all uncleanness with a desire for more and more. 20But that is not what you have been taught in Messiah, 21if indeed you heard Him and were taught in Him, as the truth is in Yeshua. 22Lay aside all your former practices and put off the old man, having been degenerated with deceitful lusts, 23and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24and to put on the new man, who is created by Yahovah in righteousness and true holiness.”
Lust and pornography are a one way dead end. 1 Timothy 6:9 HRB, “But those purposing to be rich fall into temptation, and a snare, and many foolish and hurtful lusts, which plunge men into ruin and destruction.” So repent, turn around and RUN the other way, to righteousness and holiness!! 2 Timothy 2:22 HRB, “But flee youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace, with the ones calling on our Master out of a pure heart.” No one in their right mind would hold onto a sin for one split second, if they really understood the end result in the lake of fire. 2 Timothy 4:3 HRB, “For a time will be [today] when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own lusts, they will add to themselves extra teachers according to their own desires; 4and they will turn away their ears from the truth and will be turned aside to fables.” Once saved always saved is one of those devilish fables.
Titus 2:11-14 HRB, “For the saving grace of Yahovah has appeared to all men, 12instructing us that having denied unrighteousness and worldly lusts, we should live discreetly and righteously and holy in the present age, 13looking for the blessed hope and appearance of the glory of our great Divine One and Savior Yeshua Messiah, 14who gave Himself on our behalf, “That He might redeem us from all lawlessness [Torahlessness] and purify a special people for Himself, zealous of good works.”” Do you get the connection? Pursue righteousness and gain the blessed hope, pursue unrighteousness and worldly lusts and gain the lake of fire. The blessed hope and the lake of fire are two sides of the same Kingdom Coin. Yahovah has made you an offer of salvation by His grace, He has flipped the coin in the air, you choose which side of the coin you want to land face up in your life. James 1:14-15 HRB, “But each one is tempted by his own lusts, he covets and is seduced by them. 15Then having conceived, lust brings forth sin. And sin being fully formed brings forth death.” Can it be stated any plainer? The choice is yours, you were created to choose. Choose life.
Read 1st and 2nd Peter. 1 John HRB, “2:16-17 “because all that which is in the world: The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17And the world is passing away, and its lust. But the one doing the will of Yahovah abides forever.”
Jude 1:16-21 HRB, “These are murmurers, complainers, going according to their lusts, and their mouth speaks proud flattering words, lifting up faces for the sake of gain. 17But you, beloved, remember the words spoken before by the apostles of our Master Yeshua Messiah, 18because they told you that at the last time there will be mockers following wickedness, according to their lusts. 19These are they setting themselves apart, animal-like ones, not having the Spirit. 20But you, beloved, building yourselves up by your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21keep yourselves in the love of Yahovah, eagerly awaiting the mercy of our Master Yeshua Messiah to everlasting life.” The end of the age is upon us, so please don’t follow the wrong indicators down the wrong path to the lake of fire. Don’t think with your little head, use your heart focused on Yahovah to think straight.
Do not put off repenting of your sin one more nanosecond, nor one more minute. Repent and move on and up with Yahovah, NOW, TODAY, this instant! We are praying for your deliverance, repentance and salvation today. If I can be of any assistance, please contact me.
