The American family is in trouble. America will pay, and pay dearly, for this great sin of which she is guilty. Divorce, adultery and rebellion have grown like an ugly weed throughout the country. Here, as in many other areas, the statement, “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap,” (Gal. 6:7). Too long have as a nation wink at these great sins. Too long have the ministers of the Gospel refused to preach against these great sins, and to remarry those who were divorced, and whose former companions were still living. Too long have we failed to preach that divorce and remarriage while the former companion is living constitutes adultery, and that adulterers shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (Mk. 10:11,12; Gal. 5:19-21).
Jesus said, “But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery,” (Matt 5:32).
Do not divorce your wife except for adultery. You commit adultery by marrying a divorced woman). The apostle John said “if you commit sin, you are the servant of sin,” (Jn. 8:34). The Bible tells us to “Mortify your members; put off all these sins,” (Col. 3:5,8).
Too long have we taken too lightly our marriage vows wherein we solemnly and openly before God and in the presence of witnesses promised “to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in health and in sickness, to love and to cherish, till death do us part.” It is easy for us to criticize world rulers who when an when an advantage is to be gained disregard their treaty obligations and speak of treaties as scraps of paper, but I am not sure but what our guilt before the Lord is equally great if we can lightly break our marriage vows.
The Bible says, “keep thyself pure from sins,” (I Tim. 5:22). Also see, “Flee youthful lusts; lovers of pleasure more than God; lead captive silly women with divers lusts.”
Demons work to break marriages. They will use both the husband and the wife through the spirit of lust. Lust seeks its own gratification. The pardoner will feel used, degraded or repulsed at having sexual contact with the spouse. Lust is not love. The wife knows when she is not being loved. Sex is actually a sacred gift from God and should be treated as precious with respect. Due to wide spread pornographic material, many men force their wives into oral, anal and other sexual perversions, often leading the wife into deviate sex. However, in our day due to powerful sexual brainwashing by our schools, televisions, radio and media, women have, in many instances, become willing slaves to sexual demons.
When an objective observer takes a long, hard look at the religious scene in the United States in the twentieth-first century, they are met with a truly depressing sight. Confusion abounds; something is desperately wrong.
There are a number of reasons why this tragic spiritual condition exists in our nation. Particularly over the last half century many Christians, as individuals and as a nation, have developed a strong aversion to reality and common sense. Having abandoned the habit of thinking and reasoning for ourselves of planning ahead, making long-term decisions for which they are personally responsible, have unfortunately, turned into a nation of mindless sheep, a nation obsessed with trivialities. In mental and spiritual shallowness, many have developed an obsessive desire to escape, through fantasy, the harsh realities of the world around us. They don’t want to take personal responsibility for their own lives and the decisions that they make. They just want to be amused and entertained, and without any real conscious effort on their own part and be made to “feel good” and hope everything turn out well in the end. Things may work out “happily ever after” in fairy tales, but very seldom in real life! 1
Purity is very important to God. Evil actions will attract demons to destroy your life. God does give us a road map to His freedom. The innumerable sex and other scandals (Bakker, Swaggert, Tilton, Popov, et. al.) that have sprung from such religious activities bear mute testimony to the fact that, although they may outwardly appear to talk the talk but they most certainly don’t walk the walk. As the Lord Jesus Christ stated so clearly: “Wherefore by their fruits shall you know them” (Matt. 7:20). We have had a dozen of preachers in our area that were caught picking up prostitutes, homosexuals and molesting women and children.
They are “blind leaders of the blind — individuals who have no true godliness and even less character. “And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Matt. 15:14). Hence their condemnation by Jesus. Spiritual leaders minus Jesus and His Word as the center of their lives fit into the following scriptures. “His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yes, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, everyone for his gain . . . ” (Isa. 56:10-11). “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works.”
Jesus warns, “Then will I profess unto them, I never knew you; depart from me, you that work iniquity,” (Matt. 7:21-23).
Notice carefully what Jesus said. Outwardly, these people appear to be deeply spiritual. They use what appear to many to be all the right words; they go through what appears too many to be all the right religious routines. But, despite what other religious people around them might have thought, they were, in fact, workers of iniquity.
But how could this possibly be? Jesus answers: “Why call you me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” (LK. 6:46). The religious people were talking the talk, but they weren’t walking the walk! 3 “And if it seems evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD,” (Jos. 24:15).
Now, notice carefully a couple of massive problems that the Apostle Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, said would characterize the religious scene at the end time. He admonished true pastors to, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.”
Why was he so concerned? “For the time will come when they will not endure
sound doctrine; but after their own lusts they shall heap to themselves teachers having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables,” (II Tim. 4).
As you can see, it is the people that choose their teachers. It seems that in our time many want to go to church, but keep their sin life in tack. They want to smoke their cigarettes, have their alcohol, commit fornication and adultery and live in their emotions and the flesh. They seek teachers that will not preach against their sin life. Christians’ lives are falling apart.
The institution of marriage is in trouble in the secular world and in the church. There are just as many divorces in Christian homes as we find in the world. Satan hates marriage because it was one of God’s first institutions that He created. I was meant to be the foundation of civilization. A strong Christian marriage that follows God’s Word, makes a man complete and a woman secure and happy.
Marriage is trouble because Satan has targeted it for destruction. Witches’ and wizards fast and pray against it. Two powerful principalities are working against marriages, Asmodeus and Osmodeus. These two spirits cause divorces, and sexual perverse activities. Our People must be taught and delivered and then they must commit themselves totally to God. 4
Christians are going to give an account for their actions in their marriages. It has always been considered a holy institution by the Christian Church. Christians can evangelize the world, but if they are neglecting their family in the process then, at least personally, their work is for naught. Evangelization and love for your fellow-creature starts at home. The family should be the center of Christian life. No other institution (including the church) or activity should get in the way of family life.
A family will not work if it does not follow the biblical design set forth in (Eph. 5:21-23). True family functions from a hierarchical design. (Eph. 5:22-25), states: “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the Savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything, husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it,”
The principles set forth here are clear. The male is to act as the leader of the family. The wife submits to this leadership, not out of fear of her husband or because she is inferior to him. but out of her respect for Christ. This biblical is the woman’s spiritual gift to her husband. His gift to her is his respect and love.
REBELLION VERSUS SUBMISSION
We live in a rebellious generation of individuals who feel it is their right to sit in judgment of those in authority over them. Christians are no exception. Church members critique the choir and criticize the sermon. We would be far better off if we entered into worship instead of critiquing it and allowed the sermon to judge us instead of criticizing it.
Rebelling against God leads to nothing but trouble, as our commanding general, the Lord says, “Get into ranks and follow me. I will not lead you into temptation, and I will deliver you from evil.” But we sometimes say, “No, I don’t want to follow today.” So we fall out of ranks, do our own thing, open demonic spiritual doors and get shot by Satan’s fiery darts. Then we blame God for not protecting us.
People are also tempted to rebel against human authority. They have two biblical responsibilities in regard to authority figures: pray for them and submit to them. The only time God permits us to disobey earthly leaders is when they require us to do something morally wrong before God.
Study the following passages of Scripture to further understand our response to authority: civil government (Rom. 13:15; 1 Tim. 2: -4; 1 Pet 2:13-16); parents (Eph. 6:1-3); husbands (1 Pet. 3:1,2), employers (1 Pet. 2:18-21); church leaders (Hebr. 13:17).5
“Submission,” then, does not mean enslavement. It is the “yielded, intelligent, humble obedience to an ordained authority. Christ is the ultimate example of submission. Throughout His time on earth, He submitted Himself to the will of the Father.” 6
Being submissive to human authority demonstrates faith. As you submit to God’s line of authority, you are choosing to believe that God will protect you and bless, and that all will go well with you. Ask God to forgive you for those times you have not been submissive, and declare your trust in God to work through His established lines of authority. After you have confessed any willful rebellion to God, pray the following prayer aloud:7
“Dear heavenly Father, You have said that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and insubordination is as iniquity and idolatry (1 Sam. 15:23). I know that in action and attitude I have sinned against You with a rebellious heart. I ask Your forgiveness for my rebellion and pray that by the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ will take back all ground taken against me by evil spirits because of my rebelliousness. I pray that You will shed light on all my ways that I may know the full extent of my rebelliousness and choose to adopt a submissive spirit and a servant’s heart. In the name of Christ Jesus my Lord. Amen.”8
Modern men have been turned feminist, and modern women have been turn miscellanist. Sexual roles have been reversed and confused. This, as George Gilder notes, will result in what he terms “sexual suicide.” 9
Men must become men again and regain their leadership role in the family. The effective father is a leader, a role model. If we are to have leaders for tomorrow, then the fathers of today must be leaders in the family classroom. The modern lamentations concerning the loss of leaders in this country can be traced back to a breakdown in leadership as taught in the family.
The wife plays a very important part in supporting the leadership role of the husband. This is strategic because one of mans’ greatest needs is for respect. The way a man can be hurt the most is by being rejected publicly or privately by his wife. This is part of the loving submission process. If the wife refuses to submit to her husband, their children probably will also refuse. 10 In addition to the husband being the leader of the family, he is also to be a compassionate lover of his wife. (Eph. 5:25), is very clear: “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.”
How does Christ love the church? With a sacrificial, giving, compassionate love. A husband’s love for his wife should be similar. This places the wife in a high estate. Thus, we see the practice, for example, of men opening doors for women. Such acts have roots in Christianity and, more specifically (Eph. 5).
MARRIAGE BREAKING SPIRITS
Bern Zumpano, M.D. Bible Teacher, says Perhaps no other area in the life of a believer where he/she is more vulnerable to spiritual attack than the area of his or her sexuality. Sex and sexual feelings are God-given for the purpose of express coven relationship between a husband and wife and the Lord Jesus Christ. The doctrine of Christ as it appears in the scripture dictates that our bodies are members of Christ, (I Cor. 6:15) and are not for immorality, but for Him, (I Cor. 6:12). Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit in which He dwells, (I Cor. 3:15), honoring God, (I Cor. 6:19). 11
DEMONS IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD
“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty,” (Rev 16:12-14).
“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and
delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment,” (2 Pet. 2:4). MARRIAGE BREAKING SPIRITS
Asmodeus and Osmodeus — Marriage breaking demons (Divorce) and cause rejection of sexual genders causing lesbian and homosexuality to occur.
Asmodeus and Osmodeus are also mythical spirits with characteristic such as – overpowering tendencies to rage, lust, impetuousness, impurity and psychic activities.
Asmodeus and Osmodeus Spirits Asmodeus– Osmodeus are ruling spirits that are warring against all marriages.
These spirits also are keeping many from getting married.
Asmodeus rules in sexual matters. He is sometimes referred to as “the genius of matrimonial discord and jealousy.” Because he has remained a relatively unknown spirit, he has masqueraded in many forms, deceiving scores of people and taking them captive. He says, “If you will serve me, you will never want for anything. I will take care of all your needs and you will never need a husband.” It sounded very good, almost like the Lord speaking, but it was a wrong (demonic) spirit. Once you open to receive this so called mythical spirits characteristics to cause overpowering tendencies to rage, lust, impurity, impetuousness, and psychic activities.
Eerdmans Bible Dictionary states that in rabbinic literature he is called the “king of the demons,” and is sometimes equated with Abaddon, Apollyon and Beelzebub. He is known as the “angel of the bottomless pit.” And in the last days this spirit will take on the form of locusts and will torture those human beings who do not bear the “SEAL OF GOD”
ASMODEUS HAS MANY CHARACTERISTICS
Marriage Breaking Spirits Abaddon, Apollyon and Beelzebub.
(Divorce) and cause rejection of sexual genders causing lesbian and homosexuality to occur. Characteristics such as – overpowering tendencies to rage, lust, impetuousness, impurity and psychic activities.
Asmodeus is warring against all marriages and is also keeping many from getting married. He is “king of the demons,” and is sometimes equated with Abaddon, Apollyon and Beelzebub. He is known as the “angel of the bottomless pit.” And in the last days this spirit will take on the form of locusts.
Researchers have pointed out that Asmodeus has many characteristics — some that even sound beneficial. On the one hand he is jealous, filled with rage, lustful and given to extreme excesses. On the other, he loves to have a good time, is sympathetic and is very religious.
Early church history points him out as the one that desired to possess young women in Christian service, to make them lustful and to destroy them and their work . . . He is connected to A Jezebel.
It has been said that this spirit drove Solomon to all of his excesses. In his last years he missed the mark, allowing himself to open up to wrong spirits. That example alone should prove that none of us are above falling or missing it, even after years of Christian service or ministry. The Scripture tells us that the “devil goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.” It is necessary for us to be on guard at all times against the devil’s tactics.
In mythical writings Asmodeus is the one who killed the husbands of a young woman named Sara. The first time she was to be married her husband died on their wedding night. Seven times in all she got married and in each case her husband died on their wedding night. The reason was that Asmodeus wanted this woman all to himself.
ASMODEUS – OSMODEUS Lustful spirits
Asmodeus is also a lustful spirit he will motivate a marriage partner to be unfaithful, thus bringing in an adulterous spirit. Many marriages have been destroyed because of adultery, extreme jealousy, rage and physical abuse. Remember that men as well as women can be affected by Asmodeus.
ASMODEUS – OSMODEUS Lying Spirits
A lie that Asmodeus tells single people is that they should stay single. The Scripture DOES tell us (Matt. 19:12) that there are those who are definitely called to be single, but it is the exception rather than the rule. Many young people have labored intensely over the issue of whether or not they should get married. I believe it is safe to assume that unless God definitely shows them otherwise (and He will if it is His will) it is His plan for them to be married, provided it is to the right individual.
ASMODEUS – OSMODEUS religious spirits
Asmodeus is the same demon that tells people they should get a divorce so they can better serve the Lord. In fact, somebody actually prophesied that to a minister. The word sounded “good” to the man because his wife was not a Christian. Within days, however, she got saved and he realized that a deceiving spirit had been speaking to him.
SPIRITS CONNECTED TO ASMODEUS – OSMODEUS Apollyon and Abaddon
“Over them as king they have the angel of the Abyss (of the bottomless pit). In Hebrew his name is Abaddon [destruction], but in Greek he is called
Apollyon [destroyer],” (Rev. 9:11). Abaddon (Job 31:12).
“For [uncontrolled passion] is a fire which consumes to Abaddon (to destruction, ruin, and the place of final torment): [that fire once lighted would rage until all is consumed] and would burn to the root all my [life’s] increase.” And in (Prov. 27:20), sheol (the place of the dead) and Abaddon (the place of destruction) are never satisfied; so [the lust of] the eyes of man is never satisfied.” In (Prov. 30:16). “Sheol (the place of the dead), the barren womb, the earth that is not satisfied with water, and the fire that says not, It is enough.”
Also in (Hab. 2:5). “Moreover, wine and wealth are treacherous; the proud man [the Chaldean invader] is restless and cannot stay at home. His appetite is large like that of Sheol and [his greed] is like death and cannot be satisfied; he gathers to himself all nations and collects all people as if he owned them.”
Beelzebub Mark 3:22
“And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, He is possessed by Beelzebub, and By [the help of] the prince of demons. He is casting out demons.”
The ploy of Satan has been to destroy every Christian. Satan is being exposed and his ruler demons finally being named so that victory for God’s people can be realized!
No matter how much you pray you cannot be set free (unless it comes as a Miracle). You must cast OUT Asmodeus, and Osmodeus plus the connecting demons according to (Mk. 16:17). JESUS came to destroy the works of the devil and DELIVERANCE (casting OUT demons) is the only way to be set free from these marriage breaking spirits.
ONE IN BODY, SPIRIT AND MIND
When a husband and wife come together in sexual unity, they become one in the body, spirit and mind. This is why sex is such a powerful act. So it is that when a person commits a sexual act outside of the bonds of marriage, that person becomes one in the spirit, body and mind with their partner. Every person that has had sex with a partner meets the problem of commingling spirits of every single sex act! This will cause transference of demons between the couple. Just as the person transfers germs, they will also transfer demons.
We know that generational curses can come down family lines. Think about this, if a couple decide to have sex outside of marriage, all the demons in both partners and the family lines, as far back as four to ten generations will come into this sinful act, body, soul, and spirit— and demonic infiltration will occur! The Bible shows that the Believer is protected through the bonds of marriage from demonic transfers. Look at (1 Cor. 7:14). “For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.”
What About Infidelity? ADULTERY/ABUSE
It is ironic that some do not have time for building their marriage relationships seem to have plenty of time for sex outside marriage — that is what we must conclude from the reports of marital infidelity in our country. Couples make a vow of fidelity at the altar, and many would agree with the Bible’s clear statements that adultery is sin (Exo. 20:14; Matt. 5:27,28). However infidelity today is soaring to unprecedented heights
A recent national survey discovered that nearly 31 percent of all married Americans have had or are now having an affair. Almost two-thirds of these people don’t think there is anything wrong with their actions.2 Other studies indicate that 50 to 65 percent of all married men and 45 to 55 percent of all married women have had at least one extramarital experience by the time they reach age forty
Psychologist Henry Vikler wrote a book on infidelity and concluded that- this can be one of the most painful and devastating experiences that a married person can ever encounter. It destroys trust and fuels the fires of both doubt and fear. Often it leaves the perpetrator feeling guilty and the victim feeling like a failure who was forsaken for another sexual partner. Infidelity frequently leaves lasting memories and deep insecurities in the minds of those who are affected.12
It is tragic that infidelity and a lifestyle of casual sex are glorified in television and other media. This philosophy tells men and women that they do not have to be committed to a marriage partner or to their children, but that they should be free to express their sexual urges whenever there is an opportunity.
Sexual promiscuity has become the lifestyle of America, this cult of sensualism is more than a revolution of dirty magazines and sexually explicit motion pictures. Infidelity and marital Infidelity represent a pervasive lifestyle that always corrupts the family. Men and women who indulge in such practices knowingly sacrifice their own families to gratify their sexual desire.
This kind of lifestyle also leads to the destruction of careers, inner peace, and sometimes even lives. “The biggest mistake I ever made in my life was to leave your mother for another women,” a middle-age father recently wrote to his teenage son.
The man who wrote this note took his own life after his relationship and his career had fallen apart. The abusive person uses violence (or the threat of violence) to gain control. Abuse occurs in the households of both married can cohabiting couples, and it tends to take on three forms:
Physical abuse, sexual abuse, and psychological abuse (involving actions such as rejection, constant verbal criticism, demeaning comments, or even ignoring one’s mate completely). 13
One study estimated that approximately 3:5 million women and 250,000 men in the United States have been battered by a spouse or intimate partner.’ According to other research, 25 to 30 percent of all American women are beaten at least once in the course of intimate relationships.
FBI reports indicate that 30 percent of the women who were murdered in this country during one recent year were killed by their husbands or boyfriends./ These figures cannot begin to convey the terror, physical and emotional pain, and shattered self-esteem that accompanies abusive behavior.
Most experts agree that some violence is related to the stress that modern families encounter. Men who batter often tend to bury their feelings of anxiety, fear, or frustration until they lose control and explode in anger. Often these men don’t know how to manage anger, how to cope with pressure, or how to deal with the economic diffculties of life.
Many abusive people have a low self-esteem. They have never had good male role models, they feel personally incompetent, and they are inclined to assert their masculinity by being tough and dominant. Sometimes fueled by alcohol or triggered by intense frustration, they become violent and attack their own spouses or children.9
Even Christian men can fall into the same patterns, and some come to the false conclusion that the Bible gives them permission to be dictators in their families. But the Bible teaches that husbands are to love their wives “Just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for it” (Eph. 5:25). Is Jesus Christ a dictator? No!
HUSBAND AS PROVIDER
A husband and a father is also to be a provider for his family. He is to take care of their physical needs by workng and earning an income to help meet those needs. Then he is to protect them, not only from physical harm but from spiritual harm as well.
Husbands do not have an easy job, especially in difficult economic times when jobs are A husband and a father is also to be a provider for his family. He is to take care of their physical needs by working and earning an income to help meet those needs. Then he s to protect them, not only from physical harm but from spiritual harm as well.
Husbands do not have an easy job, especially in difficult economic times when jobs are scarce or when two incomes are needed just to survive. In thinking about their place in society. Sometimes we do not like what the feminist movement says, especially when we see radical feminists seeking to destroy the family. But we agree that many women are abused and treated unfairly, and that is not right. Most men believe that women should have greater access to better jobs and that they shouldn’t have to face “invisible ceilings” in so many work places. Women do have concerns that need to be addressed and inequities that need to be corrected.
Where does all of this leave men? As one leader in the new men’s movement has written, we men have begun to realize that women are not the only gender with problems of identity. We men have problems too. We don’t know what it means to be a easy to react in anger; but abuse is never appropriate. A clear understanding of the God-ordained roles and relationships is needed.
A NEW FAMILY COVENANT
Bible students know that in the Old Testament, God made a number of covenants with his people. These binding promises were best illustrated by the Ten Commandments and the Mosaic law that God gave for his people to follow. The Bible often refers to the original, covenant, the Old Covenant, as God’s original promise to be the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and of all those who came after them, (Heb. 8:7).
In the New Testament we learn of a New Covenant, one that is built on the old but that is better (Heb. 8:8). Because Christ, God’s son, came to earth to pay for our sins with his death on the cross, we no longer have to struggle to keep the old law. Instead we can put our faith in Jesus Christ, ask him to save us, to cleanse and forgive us from our sin, and to make us new creations.
God always hears this prayer. He always answers, and He always sends His own Holy Spirit to live in us and guide us when we come humbly and honestly to him. If you have never prayed this prayer, I urge you to do so. Ask Jesus Christ to live in your heart, to show you how you should live, and to renew you for the challenges He has prepared in advance for you to undertake. He loves you so much, and He knew before you were born that you would come to this moment of decision. Please say yes to Him.
Now make a Christian covenant with your spouse and children. I hereby promise to the best of my ability to live as a holy person in my marriage. I believe that God brought you, my mate, to me. I praise him for this. I will live with you, in love and respect from this day forward, doing as the Bible says to the best of my ability. I ask Father to help me to grow daily in our marriage. We together will give our beloved children a Christian home. In the name of Jesus, our beloved Lord. 14
The Bible declares, “And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her,” (Eccl. 7:26).
What a graphic picture is presented here of the adulterous woman! Her “hands as bands” are compared to “chains.” In her warm and fond embrace, she entangles or wraps her victim’s emotions and affections in “chains of darkness.” She entices him with the bait of pleasure and leads him down the path to Hell. Nothing is more ruinous and dangerous to a man’s soul than her subtlety and enticements. The only way to escape her “chains,” “snares,” “nets,” and cunning, emotional game is to walk holy, blamelessly, and soberly in this present evil world – while keeping the body and its passions and affections under the absolute control of the Word of God. 15
As we stated above, the transferences of demons come through “open doorways of sin.” When a person commits adultery, it is not a secret sin that stays behind closed doors. It is a sin against your family. You will pollute your holy vows to your wife or husband, and you will gather hordes of demons to begin their journey down the family lines of your children.
Look at the promises of God in (Deut. 5:9-10), “Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me, 10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.”
Then look at what the Bible says when a bastard child is produced. God says, (Deut. 23:2), “A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.”
How many are living outside the Church of Jesus Christ because the curses of generation lines were not broken over families?
Former U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. C. Everett Koop, declared pornography a “crushing public health problem . . . a clear and present danger . . . blatantly anti- human . . . We must oppose it as we oppose all violence and prejudice.”16
So many people are abiding in loose sexual desires. They no longer understand the consequences of the results of their behavior. Jesus said, “Flee fornication.” He knew the spiritual rule that when a man and woman has sexual contact, they become one in the body, mind and spirit.
We have all heard about generation curses that will come down family lines. As a deliverance minister, I can say, that family demons that are in each person’s family line will transfer into the fornicators. This transference could mean that millions of demons could be transferred by sexual contact. This would affect the person’s body, mind and spirit. Confession, repentance and renunciation will set the captive free! When this minister has led people to repent from all their former sexual contacts, deliverance immediately happens and the person’s countenance is remarkable. They are suddenly set free from bondages that they did not know they had been entangled with and the chains of the past drop off.
“Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman,” (1 Cor. 7:1-5), “Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me, (Verse 1-5). The equivalent of our modern formula, “Regarding your letter.” It is possible that Paul had been asked to approve celibacy as a duty for all. He grants the state is good. Marriage, however, is a duty for those to whom the evil society and habits of the day might prove too much. This is not a low view of marriage; it is an honest facing of the facts in order to avoid fornication. Literally, fornications, the plural referring perhaps to the many cases at Corinth,” (cf. 1 Cor. 6:12-20: 3-5). “Genuine marriage, however, is a partnership, a union of two people who become “one flesh,” (6:16), and involves mutual obligations, conjugal rights.” 17(1 Cor. 6:12; 1 Cor. 6:13-14; 1 Cor. 6:15-17).
If you had sex before marriage, you set a pattern for your children to commit fornication. Like father, like son, like mother, like daughter. The sins that the parents commit will tend to be repeated by the children and their descendants.
POWERFUL ACCESS FOR DEMONIC CONTROL
There are very important reasons that both Jesus and Paul advised people to “flee fornication.” We know that fornication is considered sin. We acknowledge that God invented sex and made it beautiful to complete man and woman as husband and wife. He created it to carry on its function as both pleasures for the marriage bed but also to procreate children. The family was God’s first institution and that is why Satan hates the family unit. Satan is a polluter and reverser of the holy laws of God.
When a husband and wife come together in sexual unity, they become one in the body, spirit and mind. This is why sex is such a powerful act. So it is that when a person commits a sexual act outside of the bonds of marriage, that person becomes one in the spirit, body and mind with their partner. Every person that has had sex with a partner meets the problem of commingling spirits of every single sex act!
We know that generational curses can come down family lines. Think about this, if a couple decide to have sex outside of marriage, all the demons in both partners and the family lines, as far back as four to ten generations will come into this sinful act, body, soul, and spirit— and demonic possession will occur!.
Whenever, we take people through deliverance, we always lead them to renounce the sin of fornication and adultery. They must repent and ask the Father for forgiveness. We tell them to close their eyes and see the names of the ones that they have trespassed in fornication. Then we lead them to forgive these people and also forgive themselves. We call the sexual devils out, perversions, oral sex, etc. We break the family line curses and devils that came in from these various partners ten generations back. We cut the soul ties because a piece of the person’s mind goes with the person for every single act! This causes a fragmented mind. Entire sections of a mind will be affected. We call the fragmented mind back and a peace of mind arrives.
You can’t believe the freedom that these people get from this deliverance. It is wonderful.
REPENTANCE, SIN OF FORNICATION AND ADULTERY
Whenever, we take people through deliverance, we always lead them to repent and renounce the sin of fornication and adultery.
• They must repent and ask the Father for forgiveness.
• We tell them to close their eyes and recall the names of the ones that they have trespassed in fornication.
• We lead them to forgive these people and also forgive themselves.
• We call the sexual devils out, Asmodeus, Osmodeus, perversions, oral sex, etc.
• We break the family line curses and devils that enter in from these various partners ten generations back.
• We cut the soul ties because a piece of the person’s mind goes with the person for every single act!
• This causes a fragmented mind. Entire sections of a mind will be affected. We call the fragmented parts of the mind back for restoration and then peace of mind arrives.
Rebellion, aggression, anger, argument, belittling, cheating, criticism, malice, strife, stubborn warring, hate, adulatory, self-deception, indecision, rejection, self rejection, control, bitterness, accusation, criticism, cruelty, faultfinding, hurt, wounded spirit
You can’t believe the freedom that a person will receive from sexual transgressions after deliverance. It is wonderful.

ASMODEUS AND OSMO DEUS
“Keeping mercy and loving kindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but Who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children, to the third and fourth generation,” (Ex. 34:7).
Succubus— INCUBUS DEMONS
These are sex demons that attack at night. They are directed by Asomodeus and Osmodeus spirits. The author has ministered to many people who have experienced these demons attacking them while they are sleeping.
The respected Jewish scholar, Gershom Scholem, provides this education on demons according to the Talmud and the transition of Talmudic demonology to the Zohar: “According to Talmudic tradition, demons are spirits made in the Friday evening twilight, who, because the Sabbath has intervened, have received no bodies. From this later authorities drew the inference (which is perhaps implicit in the Talmudic sources) that the demons have been looking for bodies ever since, and that this is why they attach themselves to men. This entered into a combination with another idea. After the murder of Abel by his brother, Adam decided to have no further dealings with his wife. Thereupon female demons, succubi, came to him and conceived by him; from this union, in which Adam’s generative power was misused and misdirected, stems a variety of demons, who are called nig’e bn Adam, ‘Spirits of harm that comes from man.’…practices are systematized in the Zohar, which develops the myth that Lilith, Queen of the demons, or the demons of her retinue, does their best to provoke men to sexual acts without benefit of a woman, their aim being to make themselves bodies from the lost seed.” 18
In his article on “Jewish Magic” M. Gaster states:
“…These ideas [Talmud demonology] received a fresh impetus from the publication of the Zohar, which, a Jewish writer tells us, ” from the 14th century held almost unbroken sway over the minds of the majority of the Jews. In it the Talmudic legends concerning the existence and activity of the shedhim (demons) are repeated and amplified, and a hierarchy of demons was established corresponding to the heavenly hierarchy Manasseh [ben Israel]’s Nishmat Hayim is full of information concerning belief in demons . . . ” 19
Further reference to the Zohar teachings reveals that men and women have sex with demons during their sleep.
“See the Zohar, treatise Bereschith, folio.54b, where it is said that all men are visited in their sleep “by female devils.” These demons never appear under any other form but that of human beings, but they have no hair on their heads…In the same way as to men, male devils appear in dreams to women, with whom they have intercourse.” 20
We find further correspondences between Talmudic and Kabbalistic sources concerning demons and the succubi mentioned above. These unholy unions are found in historical accounts of witches’ confessions, i.e., The Witch Cult in Western Europe, Historie de la Magie en France and in, Hastings’ Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics, article on Jewish Magic by M. Gaster.
“…the vile confessions made by both Scottish and French peasant women accused of witchcraft concerning the nocturnal visits paid them by male devils 2. find an exact counterpart in passages of the Cabala, where it is said that, “the demons are both male and female, and they both endeavor to consort with human being a conception from which arises the belief in incubi and succuba.” 21
Biblically, we know that to embrace sorcery or witchcraft and such, is an abomination before God. Despite Old Testaments warnings, the Talmud provides ‘solutions’ for protecting oneself from the onslaught of demonic attack and disease, as seen for example, in treatise Berakhoth, folio 6:
” … The Talmud also gives directions on the manner of guarding against occult powers and the onslaught of disease. The tract Pesachim declares that he who stands naked before a candle is liable to be seized with epilepsy. The same tract also states that “a man should not go out alone on the night following the fourth day or on the night following the Sabbath, because an evil spirit, called Agrath, the daughters of Ma’hlath, together with one hundred and eighty thousand other evil spirits, go forth into the world and have the right to injure anyone they would chance to meet.” 22
Sexual Sins — Demons are passed from one person to another through sexual sins. Sex with the opposite sex outside of marriage, sex with someone who is not your spouse.
Sex with the same sex — homosexuality or lesbianism!
Sex with children!
Sex with animals!
Sadomasochism — In alternative lifestyle magazines, you will discover very large sections devoted to sadomasochism.
Focus on the Family Transcript of Ted Bundy speaking to Dr. James Dobson at the Florida State Prison, 23, January 1989 when he talked to a psychologist Dr. James Dobson on the eve of his execution. Bundy maintained that “drug store photography” helped change a vulnerable boy into the brutal mass murder of more than thirty women and girls:
This is the message I want to get across, that as a you boy, and I mean a boy of twelve and thirteen certainly, that I encountered . . . in the local grocery store, in a local drug store, the soft-core photography that people call “soft-core” . . . What I am talking about happened twenty, thirty years ago in my formative states. 23
Moments before he was electrocuted. Bundy warned America about the sadosexual material children consume today.
What scares and appalls me, Dr. Dobson, is when I see what’s on cable TV, some of the movies and some of the violence in the movies that comes into homes today, with stuff that they wouldn’t show in X-rated adult theaters thirty years ago . . . as it gets into the home to children who may be unattended or unaware that they may be a Ted Bundy. 24
What did Bundy have to gain by this confession? He was about to die. One the threshold of death, he predicted a future that most academicians, sociologists, psychologists, and serologists still ignore: There are lots of other kids playing in streets around this country today who are going to be dead tomorrow, and the next day and the next day and next month, because other young people are reading the kinds of things and seeing the kinds of things that available in the media today. 25
The Author has ministered to many people who have these type of sexual demons. A woman who was more than sixty-five came to our ministry. She said that a demon was assaulting every evening. She was single. She told us that this devil had been doing this disgraceful thing for year.
She told us, “Every major deliverance minster in the country has tried to deliver me but they have failed. She told me some of the famous deliverance ministers names that supposedly had ministered to her. We tried in vain to cast this ungodly spirit. She said, “see no one can cast us out! Walking in agreement with a devil, is a powerful thing. God will not cross over the will of a person. The name of Jesus is more powerful than all the devils in the world, but He will not traverse the will of a person!
Sexual devils have every right to stay if the person is walking in agreement with them.
Another case, we were casting devils out of a witch. She was getting a lot of deliverance. During the deliverance, a spirit of ecstasy appeared on her face. I asked the spirit to identify itself. He answered and said, “I am her pleasure devil and you can’t cast me out because she wants me here.” I asked this foul devil what kind of pleasure did he give her? The evil spirit replied, many, masturbation, bisexual, lesbian, pornography.
We gave this woman a lot of time and prayer.
She really stopped cooperating with us and decided to keep her pleasure devils.
I have cast many spiritual husbands and spiritual wives in Africa and America.
These spirits lay claims on their victims. These sex devils become very possessive of their dupes. They even give them spiritual marriage rings. These rings are invisible to the naturel eye. You must break the sexual ties and take the spiritual ring and cast it in hell!
We had a woman to come through our ministry that was the Sunday school teacher of the youth in her church.
She was a Satanist! (Many witches and Satanists go right to the children in “children church” where they can pollute them). These times, it is hard to convince Christians to work in church because many just want to “receive the Word, dance and sing to “be blessed.” Satan infiltrates and fills the gap. He sends his agent right into children’ church! Some, molest these young people and draw them into perverted life styes.
In one illustration, I’ll call this women Terry. She told me that she had joined a Satanist group and had practiced Satan worship for many years.
One day, she went to a church to see a “drama.” The next thing that happened to her is that she began to manifest. Christian began to pray for her. She was writhing and fighting against them. She fell into another dimension and black out. When she came back, everyone was praising the Lord. She asked them what had happened to her. They told her that she had become “born again.”
How ridiculous! How can a person become born again while unconscious?
She eventually married the piano player of the church and tried to make him fall away from Jesus. Being unsuccessful, she took the Sunday school class to teach the children.
Terry, had a foot that was twisted in the reverse direction and when she walked, she had to drag the foot. She told us that she had a familiar spirit called “Albert.” She said that Albert had twisted her foot after a car accident. While she was in the hospital, Albert told her that if she would give him her foot, he would heal it. She gave him her foot, and he twisted her foot!
Terry went on to tell me that every night, Albert would get in bed and placed himself between her and the husband. She had a spirit called, “a water spirit,” in Africia and also known as a spiritual husband.
When we ministered deliverance to her, we led her to command Albert to give her back her foot in the name of Jesus. After that, we delivered her from the spirit of Albert and prayed for her foot. It immediately began to be loosed and the foot turned around and became normal.
Regrettably, after much deliverance, Terry fell back and invited Albert to come back into her life. Her foot returned to the in the opposite direction of being twisted, but worse than before. Astonishingly, like her mother’s foot, her daughter’s foot became twisted and Albert turned in the opposite direction exactly the same foot!
These sexual spirits are very powerful and more common than you can imagine. So the study that I am going to take you into, may seem incredible, I make a request that you prayerfully pray.
The following are some sexual devils.
INCUBUS – A spirit or demon thought in medieval times to lie on sleeping persons, especially women, with whom it sought sexual intercourse.
SUCCUBUS – In folklore, a female demon thought to have sexual intercourse with sleeping men.
The above definitions came from Webster’s Dictionary.
INCUBI – Demonic sexual attacks on females; possibly caused by sexual sins, witchcraft spells, curses of lust, inherited curses, can attack children
SUCCUBI – demonic sexual attacks on males, may be caused by the same as Incubi above
INCUBI, SUCCUBI, ELDONN, ELDORA 26
MODERN DAY We can forget medieval times and folklore.
These demons are for real and active! Americans tend to think that these kinds of devils are just fantasy or imagination. I’m telling you that they are for real! They are supernatural evil spirits that are being invited into our homes because many open a sexual perversion door through televison, movies and evil magazine. When they are invited in, they are very hard to deliver because they are “pleasure devils” that give joy to the flesh of their victims.
You must remember, these are “feel good” devils and just as powerful as some one who gets hooked on drugs and cigarettes and you can’t get them free unless they are willing to stop. So it will be with these devils.
In the beginning they may give you pleasure but in the end, they will kill you! Try to find help before it is too late! These demons have sex with both men and women as the person sleeps, AND SOME OF YOU KNOW IT. It’s not a dream, and it is not your imagination, it’s evil supernatural experience! 27
SEX WITH DEMONS
This type of sex is usually reserved only for people who have been involved in the occult. However, a person heavily into pornography and prostitution can also experience this phenomenon. Witchcraft, Satanism, and eastern religions experience sexual intercourse of various sorts with spirits. In Africa this is called to have a spiritual wife or husband. In Asian countries, this is called ‘astral-sex’.
The following excerpts are from Erica Joseph of Breakthrough Missions (from Tampa, Florida, address unknown) in a booklet titled “Sex with demons – Nightmares, Incubus and Succubus” 28
Sexual experiences with demonic spirits are very real even in this day and age. Erica Joseph says, “I have personally taken both men and women through DELIVERANCE, that have experienced this and some became bound by the spirits of Incubus and Succubus. I have personally taken both men and women through DELIVERANCE, where the witch or warlock has actually, through the use of astral travel, seduced them, having sexual relations with them as they slept, with them thinking it was only a dream and this is arranged through the utilization of “Familiar” spirits.”
Reverend Joseph continues, “In every DELIVERANCE situation of this nature the one thing that has been required is total and complete honesty from the person seeking the DELIVERANCE. I have taken some individuals through DELIVERANCE and the Holy Ghost has caused those spirits to manifest (reveal themselves). Some individuals have enjoyed the sexual experience with those demons. Thus, DELIVERANCE was not effective.” She goes on to say, “In some instances, I have found that those spirits have entered in through masturbation and fantasy lust. If the individuals renounce the fantasy lust and stopped masturbating, they were DELIVERED. I have taken several individuals through DELIVERANCE from those demons and I’ve found that people have been violated (raped) by spirits, not actually wanting to believe it or not understanding what happened to them until DELIVERANCE revealed it. But they know that they had experienced something painful and undesirable.” 29
Amazingly, Joseph proceeds to write, “I have taken individuals through DELIVERANCE, that have felt the bed moving, felt their bodies responding uncontrollably, yet their rational, logical mind could not comprehend it. So they wrote it off as a dream. These demonic spirits that function in this sexually perverse way must be renounced and cast OUT, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” 30
Essentially, the incubus is a lewd demon which seeks sexual intercourse with women. It is also termed follet (French), alp (German), duende (Spanish) and folletto (Italian). The corresponding demon who appears to men is the succubus. When associated with one particular witch or sorcerer, both incubus and succubus is known as magistellus, or “familiar.” Inasmuch as the nightmare dream is sexual in latent content, an incubus is often used interchangeably with The Mare Demon; in fact, the Latin word for nightmare is incubo (to lie upon). The incubus can assume either a male or a female shape. Sometimes he appears as a full-grown man. Sometimes as a satyr or in the form of a demon, and if it is a woman who has been received as a witch, the incubus generally assumes the form of an animal.
A succubus is a demon in female form, specialized in seducing men. Although feminine in meaning, in form this medieval Latis word, succubus, is masculine (because demons were supposedly sexless) the feminine form succuba (strumpet) is occasionally found. 31
If you have, or are having dreams or nightmares of a sexual nature that you know are as real as life, dreams where you cannot exactly distinguish the real from the unreal, please seek DELIVERANCE. Don’t allow Satan and his demonic hosts to degrade your body which is the Temple of God.
The demon MARE: Works with the Incubus and Succubus demons. This demon is alleged to cause dreams of sexual content coupled with those evil spirits.
NIGHT SPELLS: Charms or enchantments by night, used by witches and warlocks.
NIGHTMARE or MARE: The demon or mare alleged to cause bad dreams. The dream itself is called a nightmare.
MARE: The supposed demon which, during the night, sits on the chest and causes feelings of suffocation and choking. Causing a feeling of being paralyzed and that the weight is crushing the breath out of a person
There are humans who have the ability for out of body experiences. These spirits are “visiting” you as you sleep. Cutting their silver cord, in the name of Jesus, will make them disappear.
If you are attacked by these demons, pray this way.
In the name of Jesus, I bind up these demons, and I command them to leave me and my home.
“I cut all ungodly silver cords and command all ley lines to burn by the power of the Holy Ghost.” (Wizards and witches that are soul traveling at night. This is called atrial projection. The silver cord is connected to the person’s body and the person’s spiritual body. The person can live as long as the silver cord is connected to the physical body. A supernatural power will stay in effect and function, unless a superior power superceeds or overcomes it. Born again Christians are the only people who can use the name of Jesus to rebuke and deliver demons).
If you are unable to speak, you can just THINK these prayers or the word JESUS. It works!
THE SPIRITUAL REALMS AND HOW DEMONS WORK Marriage Breaking Spirits “I am a DELIVERANCE worker, and minister whenever I am contacted, but had been working full time till this year. I recently retired, so I am more available now.
One of my most remarkable experiences in DELIVERANCE was the case of a 32 yr. old petite, fragile woman, who had been married 6 times and was on the verge of divorcing her present husband. She couldn’t understand it, she loved them all, but bad things happened to them. One committed suicide, one was accidentally killed, one was an alcoholic, etc. After much counseling, I discovered she was first engaged to a sailor, planned to marry but he was called overseas, and later she broke the engagement.
However his mother, who had picked her for a new daughter-in-law, was so upset and angry that she placed a CURSE on this girl. “If you don’t marry my son, you will never find another man to marry. You will never stay married to anybody else. I will see to that.”
I broke that curse spoken by the mother, and as I did, this little fragile woman bolted up, threw herself to the floor, and started screaming obscene things, and wanted the demons to continue controlling her life. I called out all spirits behind the curse, broke soul ties between she and each mate, commanded all separation spirits to come out (demons began writhing), then ministered healing of emotions. At this point, she had become so weak she could hardly sit up, but as the healing took place, she became more alert, and could not believe what had happened. Praise God.
Several months later, she and her husband were reconciled.
A word of caution!!! Whenever, someone speaks words over you that sounds like a curse, break the curse as soon as possible. Also, when ministering DELIVERANCE, always check for curses in a person’s past.”
Has anyone ever cursed your marriage? Break it in Jesus Name!
The Author has ministered to many people who have these type of sexual demons. A woman who was more than sixty-five came to our ministry. She said that a demon was assaulting her every evening. She was single. She told us that this devil had been doing this disgraceful thing for year.

Walking in agreement with a devil, is a powerful thing. God will not cross over the will of a person. The name of Jesus is more powerful than all the devils in the world, but He will not traverse the will of a person!
Sexual devils have every right to stay if the person is walking in agreement with them. Another case, we were casting devils out of a witch. She was getting a lot of deliverance.

The following are some sexual devils.
I have cast many spiritual husbands and spiritual wives (demons) in Africa and America. These spirits lay claims on their victims. These sex devils become very possessive of their dupes. They even give them spiritual marriage rings. These rings are invisible to the natural eye. You must break the sexual ties and take the spiritual ring and cast it in hell!
A friend of mine called me. “Pastor Pat. I had the strangest dream last night. I suddenly aroused from a deep sleep. I saw a woman and she was on top of me. She looked like a harlot. I had an orgasm and she disappeared.”
I told him that the woman was the spirit of Asmodeus. The woman was a demon that took the form of Jezebel. We bound these powers and prayed. He was delivered in the name of Jesus. This demon has never returned.
Pastor called EL called me and told me this dream.
I dreamed of a strange women that looked like a witch. In her hand, I saw my daughter’s wedding ring. She had a chain around her neck. I said, “what are you doing with my daughters’ wedding ring? I tackled her and snatched the ring. I bind you. In the name of Jesus, give me the ring.” Then I awakened.
I called Pat Holliday and she said that my daughter was being bound by an osmosdeus spirit to keep her from getting married. Pastor Holliday and I prayed and broke the chain from my daughter’s neck.
About six months later pastor EL called again. My daughter asked me to seek the Lord about her future husband. I told her that I was going to God and really pray about it. I was praying for my daughter. I had an open vision. I saw a big house and sitting on the front porch was a man. He said, “Why are you coming here to get your daughter’s husband. I have five sons and not one of them are married. My sons belong to me.”
Then I replied in the name of Jesus. “I rebuke you and the blood binds you in the name of Jesus..” He suddenly fell of the porch.
I went up the stairs and into the house. There were five sons sitting. I walked towards my daughter’s husband. I was distracted by the open back door and turned towards the back door. There was an open field and could see acres and acres of men. I saw all types of men in the world, rich and poor, blind, crippled, middle age, and old men. Businessmen of all categories, such as lawyers, doctors, judges, and men of all types said to me, “he prevented me from getting married. The middle-aged men said. I have been waiting for my wife. I desire my wife and a family. Others said I don’t have any children because I was not allowed to marry my wife.”
I asked them why they were in this place. They replied, “We can’t leave. That man has us captive here. We want to go to our wives but we cannot leave.” One old man said, “I’ve been here since my youth. I am now too old to have children but I still want to marry my wife.”
I told the men, “Why don’t you just leave?” “We cannot leave. He has us captives here.”
I turned to go back to the front door. The man was gone.
Again, I called my friend, Pat Holliday. “I know this is a spiritual dream. Do you know what vision this means?”
“That’s amazing. You know, I am writing a book called Marriage and Sex. I exposing spirits called Asmodeus and Osmodeus. These are the principality spirits that keep people from getting married. They are in control of sexual spirits. They tempt people into sexual sin and then they bind them.”
I believe that God gave this pastor this dream and open vision and then gave me the interpretation. He wanted to show us how these marriage- breaking demons work in the spirit realms effects over the physical realms. He showed us how to pray for this pastor’s daughter’s future wedding. Also, I believe it gives us insight to pray for the single people in our churches to free them to marry their mates. To God be the Glory.
Charles Spurgeon writes, “Having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” (2 Pet. 1:4). Vanish for ever all thought of indulging the flesh if you would live in the power of your risen Lord. It were ill that a man who is alive in Christ should dwell in the corruption of sin. “Why seek ye the living among the dead?” said the angel to Magdalene. Should the living dwell in the sepulchre? Should divine life be immured in the charnel house of fleshly lust? How can we partake of the cup of the Lord and yet drink the cup of Belial? Surely, believer, from open lusts and sins you are delivered: have you also escaped from the more secret and delusive lime-twigs of the Satanic fowler? Have you come forth from the lust of pride? Have you escaped from slothfulness? Have you clean escaped from carnal security? Are you seeking day by day to live above worldliness, the pride of life, and the ensnaring vice of avarice? Remember, it is for this that you have been enriched with the treasures of God. If you be indeed the chosen of God, and beloved by Him, do not suffer all the lavish treasure of grace to be wasted upon you. Follow after holiness; it is the Christian’s crown and glory. An unholy church! it is useless to the world, and of no esteem among men. It is an abomination, hell’s laughter, heaven’s abhorrence.
The worst evils which have ever come upon the world have been brought upon her by an unholy church. O Christian, the vows of God are upon you. You are God’s priest: act as such. You are God’s king: reign over your lusts. You are God’s chosen: do not associate with Belial. Heaven is your portion: live like a heavenly spirit, so shall you prove that you have true faith in Jesus, for there cannot be faith in the heart unless there be holiness in the life.”
“Lord, I desire to live as one Who bears a blood-bought name, As one who fears but grieving Thee, And knows no other shame.” 32
1. History bears testimony to this great fact that the great Roman Empire fell when the homes of that Empire decayed. In the earlier years of the Empire the wives remained at home and cared for their children. It was then that the Empire became great and strong and ruled the world. But later a great moral decline took place.
2. The historian Uhlhorn says, speaking of the moral decline that took place in the Roman Empire, “The performances in the theater were thoroughly immoral, and everywhere at social mythological entertainments painting on the walls, tables, and utensils for food, presentations of naked forms, pictures often positively immodest, surrounded the guests—to say nothing of the shows, dances, music, and songs. The result was that domestic chastity and morality almost wholly disappeared
A third reason for thinking of this subject is because Home can be and should be such a precious spot to us. It is one of the sweetest words in the English language. It is the oldest of all institutions. It is as old as the human race. It is a divinely ordained institution. It is meant by the Lord to be the place where love and happiness supremely reigns. It should be the place where children want to spend their time in preference to all other places. It should be far more than a boardinghouse with a lunch-counter. It should be more, as Dr. Robert G. Lee has so aptly said, than a place where the children stay while the automobile is being repaired and when the movies are not running. 33
(Num. 30:14), “But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from day to day; then he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds, which are upon her: he confirmeth them, because he held his peace at her in the day that he heard them.”
(Num. 30:14), “But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from day to day; then he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds, which are upon her: he confirmeth them, because he held his peace at her in the day that he heard them.”
(Ezek. 16:45), “Thou art thy mother’s daughter, that loatheth her
husband and her children; and thou art the sister of thy sisters, which loathed their husbands and their children: your mother was an Hittite, and your father an Amorite.”
(1Cor. 7:3), “Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.”
(II Tim. 2:24,25), “The servant of the Lord must not strive, but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient. In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth.”
I recognize that there is only one true and living God (Ex. 20:2,3), who exists as the Father, So and Holy Spirit, and that He is worthy of all honor, praise, and worship as the Creator, Who sustains, and Beginning and End of all things, (Rev. 4:11; 5:9,10; Isa. 43:1,7, 21).
I believe that God has proven His love for me, because when I was still a sinner Christ Died for my sins, (Rom. 5:8).
I believe that He delivered me from the domain of darkness and transferred me to His kingdom; and in Him I have redemption and the forgiveness of sins, (Col. 1:13,14).
I believe that I am now a child of God, (1 Jn. 3:1-3), and that I am seated with Christ in the heaven lies, (Eph. 2:6). I believe that I was saved by the grace of God through faith that it was a gift and not the rest of any works on my part (Eph. 2:8).
I choose to be strong in the Lord in the strength of His might (Eph. 6:10). I put no confidence the flesh (Phil. 3:3), for the weapons of my warfare are not of the flesh (2 Cor. 10:4). I put on the whole armor of God, (Eph. 6:10-17), and I resolve to stand firm in my faith and resist the evil one.
I believe that Jesus has all authority in heaven and on earth, (Matt. 28:18), and that He is the head over all rule and authority (Col. 2:10). I believe that Satan and his demons are subject to me in Christ because I am a member of Christ’s body, (Eph. 1:19-23). I therefore obey the command to resist the Devil, (Ja. 4:7), and I command him in the name of Christ to leave my presence.
I believe that apart from Christ I can do nothing (Jn. 15:5), so I declare my dependence on Him. I choose to abide in Christ in order to bear much fruit and glorify the Lord (Jn. 15:8). I announce to Satan that Jesus is my Lord, (I Cor. 12:3).
I Believe that the truth will set me free, (Jn. 8:32) and I reject any counterfeit gifts or works of Satan in my life.
I believe that the truth will set me free (Jn. 8:32), and that walking in the
light is the only part fellowship, (Jn. 1:7). Therefore, I stand against Satan’s deception by taking every thought captive in obedience to Christ, (2 Cor. 10:5). I declare that the Bible is the only authoritative standard, (2 Tim. 3-15-17).
I choose to speak the truth in love, (Eph. 4:15).
I choose to present my body as an instrument of righteousness, a living and holy sacrifice, and I renew my mind by the living Word of God in order that I may prove that the will of God is good, acceptable, perfect. (Rom. 7:13; 12:1,2).
I ask my heavenly Father to fill me with His Holy Spirit, (Eph. 5:18) to lead me into all truth (Jn. 16:18), and to empower my life so that I may live above sin and not carry out the desires of the flesh, (Gal. 5:16). I crucify the flesh, (Gal. 5:24) and choose to walk by the Spirit.
I renounce all selfish goals and choose the ultimate goal of love, (1 Tim. 1:5).
I choose to obey greatest commandment, to love the Lord my God with all
my heart, soul, and mind, and to love my neighbor as myself (Matt. 22:37-39).
We can rebuild Christian marriage by knowing and obeying God’s Word! The Bible does say that Christians walk with Jesus through the scope of his Word.” 34
GOD’S PLAN FOR MEN IN FAMILIES
Something has happened to men in the past few years. For almost a generation males have watched women define their roles, deal with their insecurities, clarify what it means to be female, and macho-masculinity is harmful to people of both sexes. At last we are waking up to the fact that men have a lot of problems. We struggle with insecurities, relationships, finances, sex, careers, finding integrity as leaders, or dealing with temptations that come from our lusts, our desires to wield power, our love of money, and our temptation to be perfect. It has taken a while, but more and more men are also beginning to ask questions about spirituality and about what it means to be on earth, in the midst of the supersonic changes that are whizzing around us.
The Bible is not a question-answer book that lists all our problems and gives cookbook answers. It does give guidelines for living, however, and it does give us a model, Jesus Christ. We men have the challenge of following His example, as best we can and with divine help. According to God’s plan, men in families have at least two-major responsibilities. They are to lead and they are to be loving.
(Matt. 22:2), “The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage/or his son,”
(Matt 22:4), “Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden. Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.”
(Matt. 22:9), “Go ye therefore into the highways, and as man) as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.”
(Matt. 22:30), “For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.”
(Matt. 24:38), “For as in the days that were before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, (ICor. 7:10), And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:”
(I Cor. 7:11), “But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.”
(I Cor. 7:13), “And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. (I Cor. 7:14), For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.”
(I Cor. 7:16),”For what knowest thou, 0 wife, whether thou shall save thy husband? or how knowest thou, 0 man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?”
