Did you know that it is possible to actually invite trouble, pain, sickness, and death into your life? It is and the wicked do this all the time.... and with great pleasure I might add!
Let me give an example. A wicked man who cares nothing for God or His Word has no problem with fornication. The wicked and godless set their own moral values and fornication, adultery, and sodomy is an acceptable practice to many in these last days. On the other hand God warns that such sins are evil and destructive to ones body. The fornicators are actually sinning against their own body as they commit sexual sin. As a result they will bring many troubles upon themselves.
1 Corinthians 6
18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
Since the lost person has his own moral standards, he freely fornicates with his body. Lost people see nothing wrong with sexual immorality between consenting adults. What are the results of this type of reasoning? Terrible sickness, pain (physical and emotional), abortion (murder of innocent blood) and an early death are some results of sexual sin. Sicknesses like AIDS, herpes and other terrible and incurable sexual diseases are very common for the fornicators. I have heard statistics that say that one in five people are infected with herpes which is incurable. Guess how such a person got infected?.... right you are in your guess!...fornication and sexual sin! Do you want to avoid all that trouble and evil in your life? Well apply God's standards of obedience and avoid sexual sin!
So if you want to increase your pain and suffering simply violate the moral laws of God and you will get all the pain, sickness, and death you can handle! However, before you start, be sure to go out and pick out a nice casket with proper funeral arrangements. Get lots of flowers for your casket as you'll be needing these things before your time! Also get an extra deep hole for burial so you will not cause too much contamination as your disease racked and decaying body is placed in the ground.
Here are some verses that show how the wicked hellbound sinner tend to get into trouble and destruction while those who love and obey God actually avoid troubles.
23 It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.
7 A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.
32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.
33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.
36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
19 As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.
13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.
27 The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
As you can see by the verses above that it is very wise to depart from evil. Many, however, refuse to listen and continue down the road to their own destruction. Below is some verses describing a foolish young man and his personal destruction due to his sexual fornication. This is a good example of the many mindless, pleasure seeking, fornicators today:
1 My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
9 Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;
11 And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
12 And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
Verse 11 and 12 above shows the young man mourning as he is dying in a disease racked body. He laments the fact that he hated instruction and reproof. He rejected sound teaching and is now dying as a result of his rebelliousness. Do you know anyone like that? Well our current society praises and lifts up on high people like the above young man. Many young men like the above today are considered 'role models' and even star in big Hollywood movies as they freely fornicate from partner to partner with no consequences for their sin. However the young man in the above Biblical example died as a result of his sin and that fact is hidden from those who promote sexual sin today. The lesson to be learned from the above Scripture is there is a price to pay for sexual sin. You will pay that price with your life abd you could suffer for the rest of your shortened life with a terrible degenerating disease!
WARNINGS about strange women
The Bible warns men again and again to stay away from immoral women. They are a trap and a snare and will cause pain and death. Although they may be skilled in the art of flattery stay away from sexual sin with a strange woman. Here we will look at some scripture warning about a strange (immoral) woman:
16 To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;
Notice that the strange woman uses flattery to entice her prey.
17 Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.
Both parties who get involved in fornication and adultery have forsaken God. Those who love God will stay clear away from multiple sexual partners and fornication. Here is an important point. A person who loves sexual fornication and immorality does not love God. This person wants nothing to do with God and Biblical morality.
18 For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.
Those who get involved in fornication are heading to death and hell. There are many terrible diseases that will weaken and destroy the body. After the body is destroyed the person has a lost eternity to face in hell, the lake of fire. I also believe that as a person fornicates from partner to partner they also develop a hardened heart to the Gospel. They back away from God and the salvation He freely offers as their fornication become more important. The end result of a hardened heard is dying in rejection of the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and perishing forever in the lake of fire.
19 None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.
20 That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.
What do good men do? What to the righteous do? They stay clear away from sexual fornication and adultery. They obey the clear moral laws of God found in the Bible. These people show by their actions that they love God.
21 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.
22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.
God is judging the world and the Lord Jesus is coming back to earth very soon. The wicked will be cut off forever and those who belong to God will prosper and flourish. The above verses give definite warning to stay away from strange, enticing women. Those who love judgment, death, and hell will ignore these warnings and partake of their sexual immorality.
The next set of verses ask a question:
20 And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?
Why, why, why would a person want to fornicate with a stranger or someone outside the covenant of marriage? That is a good question to ask considering all the bad consequences (spiritual and physical) of sexual fornication.
21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
Those who fornicate do not think that God can see what is happening. God is very aware of the moral climate in this world. No one gets away with anything in secret. God is aware of ever act of fornication and adultery.
22 His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.
23 He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
For those who reject instruction and sound teaching will go astray and ultimately die and be lost. They will be bound and addicted to their sin as they fornicate from partner to partner.
Here are some more warnings about fornicating and adultery:
24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.
25 Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
Again we are warned that strange, immoral, and evil women use flattery to entrap their prey.
26 For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
Judgment and pain is the only thing that can result to those who fornicate.
27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?
28 Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?
29 So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.
Can a person stick his hand in open fire and not be burned? The answer is no he cannot! Therefore do not think YOU can fornicate or commit adultery and not pay any consequences for that sin. You can be infected with a tormenting and deadly disease or you may be killed by a jealous spouse.
30 Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;
31 But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.
32 But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.
33 A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.
Those involved in fornication and adultery are destroying their own soul. These warnings are very clear. Do not do such a thing or else you will suffer the consequences! And I might add the consequences are not pleasant.
34 For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
35 He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.
For those involved in adultery be aware. The other person's spouse may become very jealous and take vengeance out upon YOU. Many people have been murdered by those in a jealous rage. How does a person protect himself from such an attack? Simple, do not fornicate and commit adultery. Obey the moral laws of God and one will be spared from a multitude of troubles!
More warnings about going after strange a woman!
5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.
This is another warning that a strange, immoral woman uses flattery to entrap her victim. Next we look a simple young man who goes after a strange woman.
6 For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,
7 And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
A young man was walking who was young, strong, and lacked understanding. In otherwards he was a fool led around blindly by his desires in search for personal pleasure. Does that sound like a problem in this day and age?
8 Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,
9 In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
This foolish young man goes walking (purposely) near the home of a strange women.
10 And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
11 (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
12 Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
The foolish young man is approached by a strange woman. This woman is rebellious and is not committed to her own family situation. She prefers to have many partners as she commits adultery.
13 So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,
14 I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.
15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
16 I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.
17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
The strange woman uses flattery and slick speech to attract the young fool.
19 For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
20 He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.
In this case the woman is married and her husband is away on business. Both the woman and the young man are aware of this fact and neither have any problem with adultery.
21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
The foolish man listens and then gives in. She had to twist his arm but I get the impression that it was not very hard to entrap this victim.
22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
The young man goes with the foolish woman. Since he lacks brains he doesn't realize that he is heading for personal disaster.
23 Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
At first he moves reluctantly but then his passion kicks in and he rushes off with the woman for some adultery. Little does he know that he is heading toward death.
24 Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
For those reading who are not foolish and can respond to sound teaching from God Himself... this warning is for you!
25 Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.
26 For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
27 Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
God says stay away from the strange woman. Do NOT get involved in fornication or adultery at all! Do not be led astray by the flattery speaking strange woman. The consequences are great and will result in pain, sickness, and death. The physical result is sickness and an early death. The spiritual result of fornication is hell, the lake of fire.
Will people listen to this warning from God? Hopefully some may do so! The wicked, God-rejecting fornicators will not listen. But the time is late and today is the day for a person to make their choice to accept or reject the Lord Jesus Christ. It is an eternal decision and one that must be made now! A few years of sexual sin is not worth an eternity burning in hell separated from God!
12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
For those who reject the Lord Jesus there is death waiting for them. First they will die a horrible death physically as they get infected with terrible sexual diseases. Secondly they will perish forever in the lake of fire separated from God.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
