Preparing yourself for the study of God’s Word

Before we begin, if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ (that is— you have trusted in Him for eternal life), it is important to prepare yourself to take-in God’s Word or participating in a Communion Service, so take a moment to name, cite or acknowledge your sins privately directly to God the Father. This will assure that you are in fellowship with God the Father and the Holy Spirit’s convicting ministry, also called the convincing ministry will then be able to teach you as the Holy Spirit is the real teacher and the pastor’s message is the vehicle the Holy Spirit uses to convince you what you are learning is true or not.

1 John 1:9 says—“If we confess [simply name, cite or acknowledge to God the Father] our sins [known sins], He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins [known sins] and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness [all unknown and forgotten sins];” NKJV (New King James Version); we call this REBOUND, read the full doctrine as to “why” we need to use 1 John 1:9 to grow spiritually. REBOUND

If you have never personally believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior (that is, believed in Him for eternal life), the issue for you is not to name your sins to God; the issue for you is to believe by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life and you will be saved the very second you believe in Him:

John 6:47 says: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” NKJV

Notice again what John 6:47 says, “he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” It doesn’t say, “will have”; it says, “has.” Therefore, the very moment you believe Jesus Christ’s promise of everlasting life, you have it (it’s really just that simple), and it can never be lost or taken away from you (John 10:28-29). Furthermore, the gift of everlasting life (also called eternal life in scripture) is available to every human being; there are absolutely no exceptions.

John 3:14-18 says: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” NKJV

Let us now bow our hearts and take a moment to prepare for learning God’s Word, if there is any known sin in your life, this is the time to just cite it privately to God the Father with your thoughts directed towards Him. With your head bowed and your eyes closed, you have total privacy in your mind and soul:

NOTES
Unlike the bible study, these notes are not just for reading without watching the video. These notes are more designed to follow along during the sermon and to bring up the “hover pop-up scripture references” (some websites may require to left click the link, if that doesn’t work then look them up in your Bible) when the Pastor asks everyone to turn to that passage in their bibles.


Sermon: Exo 20:14 “You shall not commit adultery.” Let’s Talk about Sex.


Commandment #7 is designed for the Protection of Marriage = Exo 20:14 “You shall not commit adultery.”

Col 3:5 Therefore consider the members of your earthly body [eyes, ears, hands, feet], as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.

Five Sins = immorality, impurity, passion, evil desires, greed, which all are said to be some sort of a manifestation of demonic worship or the worship of idolatry.

Col 3:5 Therefore, consider the members of your earthly body [eyes, ears, feet, hands, etc.] as dead to immorality [sexual activity outside of marriage] impurity [abnormal sexual activity],passion [abnormal sex lust], evil desire [overwhelming desire for sex], and greed [craving for sexual activity], which keeps on amounting to idolatry or the worship of idols or demons.

The Phallic cult is part of licentious reversionism or the promotion of all kinds of sexual activity and is referred to in 2Co 12:21; Eph 4:19, 5:5, Rev 2:14, 20 23.

Used – Eph 4:19 = some believers have become callous and have given themselves over to sensuality, for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness.

Used in Eph 5:5 For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

Used in Rev 2:14 where it describes the believers in the church of Pergamum and who are mixing doctrines of demons and making money out of religion and impurity.

1. In Rev 2:14 some hold to the teaching of Balaam (making money on religion and orgies.

2. Some keep teaching about Balak who was known for putting stumbling blocks in the way of God’s people.

3. Other believers and even unbelievers were eating food and things sacrificed to idols,

4. There were those believers and unbelievers who acts of immorality, namely religious orgies.

Because of all the danger that accompanies sexual sins with the influence of Phallic Cult and reversionism, it gives Satan a room in the soul to work upon in the life of the believer.

Eph 4:27 ‘Do not give room or a space in your soul to the devil.” because if you do, you will be influenced and, in some cases, overwhelmed by the devil who goes about like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour.

The Phallic Cult was forbidden by God to Israel in Exo 20:3, 23, Deut 4:28, 5:7, 6:14, 8:19.

All of this is because no nation ever survives the spread of the Phallic Cult and being under the influence of excessive sexual LUSTS.

It motivates the human race to get involved in the whole realm of sexual sins as in the Phallic cult, Eze 22:1-16, 23:37 49.

Are you going to face her with all her outrageous obscenities.

In all their killing, they’ve piled up guilt and in all their idol making, they have become filthy.

“you have brought your day near and have come to your years;” = they have forced a premature end to their existence — sin unto death.

Vs. 4 = says in effect. “I‘ll put you on exhibit as the scarecrow of the nations, the world’s worst joke.”

From far and near others will mock those believers involved with idolatry and adultery and they will be infamous in filth, notorious for chaos.

Even their leaders, the princes of Israel among you, will be involved in crime and their community will be disrespectful and abusive toward parents, abusive to outsiders, oppressive against orphans and widows.

They treated our Lord’s holy things with contempt and desecrated His Sabbaths and became familiar with God’s word which is prohibited by the word of God.

The Message Bible translation says in Eze 22:9 “You have people spreading lies and spilling blood, flocking to the hills to the sex shrines and fornicating unrestrained.”

In verse 11, idolatry promotes sex which is now anarchy. Anyone is fair game: neighbor, daughter in law, sister.

In verse12, Murder is for hire, usury is rampant, extortion is commonplace. “And they have forgotten God.”

In Jer 9:14, the prophet Jeremiah tells us why this happened to them as they followed idolatry “But they have walked after the stubbornness of their heart [the scar tissue of their hearts] and after the Baals, as their fathers taught them.

1. Incest

2. Fornication

3. Homosexuality

4. Bestiality, Lev 18:3 25

Demonism, Lev 20:6;

Human sacrifice, Lev 20:1 5;

Rejection of authority, Lev 20:9;

And social degeneracy, Lev 20:10 23.

The entire religious background of the Phoenician Phallic Cult is found in what is known as the “Epic of Ugarit” (or as some say u-ga-ri-tic).

In this Epic or long poem, the deeds and adventures of heroic or legendary figures or the history of a nation are recorded.

God the Father is counterfeited by the god called “el.” The son is counterfeited by Baal.

Baal has a struggle once a year with mot, the god of death, and he (mot) dies, which is a counterfeit of the cross.

Baal also had a wife sister, Anoth, who finds his body and brings it back to life (the counterfeit of the resurrection).

The goddess of sex, murder, warfare, and love. In Phoenician she is Ashtarti or Ashtarrith; In Latin she becomes Venus.

I gave it to show you the importance of idolatry as it relates to deception because that is all an idol is —- a lie or a nothing manifested by something or someone.

Isa 43:21 “The people whom I formed for Myself, Will declare My praise.”

Prov 16:4 The Lord has made everything for its own purpose, Even the wicked for the day of evil.

Col 1:16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities all things have been created by Him and for Him.

Col 1:17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.

Matt 24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you.

Any area that you do not have sound doctrine in, is an area open to deception. Anything that we think or do, that is not oriented to the way God thinks is open to deception.

Idolatry leads to deception which leads to is demonization of the soul and personality of the believer or unbeliever living in the cosmic system.

It leads to deception where “thought transference” of demon doctrines are taught to the believer or unbeliever in the cosmic system.

Col 2:4 I keep on communicating these things in order that no one may delude you or deceive you with persuasive arguments.

In 1Co 3:18, Paul said, “Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become foolish [realize that he is a fool] that he may become wise.

Even the woman in the garden, who was perfect and didn’t have an OSN ended up deceived by the craftiness and subtlety of Satan.

2Co 11:3 But I am afraid, lest as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds should be led astray [deceived] from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.

Notice that it is the “mind” which is led astray first, not the body!

According to the Bible, she was not just tricked and partially deceived, but in 1Ti 2:14, quite deceived.

Deception is the invasion of the soul, especially the mind, emotion, and self consciousness of the soul.

The result is the “invasion” of the human personality of the believer or unbeliever who lives in the cosmic system.

Deception is also the infiltration of satanic thought which why Satan’s thoughts are called doctrines of demons, 1Ti 4:1.

It just isn’t expressed in terms of evil, but in terms of improving this world, doing nice things for your fellow man, and supporting crusades.

Deception is the invasion of the soul with thought that is false thinking, i.e., the policy and principles by which Satan operated prior to the creation of man and afterwards as the ruler of this world.

Satan desires to promote sin and evil or to improve this world and try to make himself to be equal with God?

Here is where the alert pastor comes into the picture and reveals the spiritual and invisible purpose of “True Idolatry” which comes in by means of blinding and deceiving us from divine solutions.

For now we are deceived by looking at marriage, family, money, wealth, friends, social life, materialism, fame, fortune or power as a means of blessings and we forget the Blessor.

In idolatry, you always end up elevating anyone or anything over the Lord God or Jehovah Elohim.

Psa 39:5 “Behold, Thou hast made my days as handbreadths, And my lifetime as nothing in Thy sight, Surely every man at his best is a mere breath. Selah.

Psa 96:5 For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the Lord made the heavens.

One of the most popular cults in the ancient world was the Phallic Cult = some principles that I believe explain why they fell into these temptations which were found in their “promise” land.

1. Immorality of all kinds, Lev 18:3 25, e.g, fornication, cultic prostitution, homosexuality, etc.

2. Idolatry related to the Phallic Cult always includes human sacrifice, Lev 20:1 5.

3. Frenzied group sex, Lev 20:1-5.

4. Demonism, Lev 20:6.

5. Rejection of authority, Lev 20:9.

6. Spiritual, social, and cultural degeneracy, Lev 20:10 23.

7. Bestiality and incest is forbidden and those involved in them pay the penalty of capital punishment or death, Lev 20:14-21.

8. Masturbation, Deut 12:29-31; Gen 38:8-10.

9. Merchandising feminine beauty, Eze 16:15, which refers to revealing certain parts of the female body to what Eze 16:15 calls “every passer-by who might be willing.”

10. Excessive use of alcohol and the promotion of nudity among the sexes, Hab 2:15-16.

Idolatry and the Phallic Cult were responsible for the downtrend of client nation Israel; Isa 2:8, 18 20, 21:9, 36:18 20, 37:12 19; Jer 3:6-11, 2:27 30, 7:17 20, 17:1 4; Eze 6:4-6.

Prepare yourself for learning the Word of God!

Before we begin, if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ (that is; you have believed [trusted] in Him for His promised gift of eternal life), it is important to prepare yourself to learn God's Word so take a moment to name, cite or acknowledge (confess) your sins privately to God (i.e.; with your thoughts directed only to God the Father).

1 John 1:9 says: "If we confess our sins, He (God) is faithful and just to forgive us our sins (known sins) and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness [unknown or forgotten sins]." NKJV (New King James Version) [italics added]; we call this REBOUND, read the full doctrine as to “why” we need to use 1 John 1:9 to grow spiritually. REBOUND

If you have never personally believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, that He is the Son of God, the promised Messiah, as your Savior (that is, believed in Him for eternal life), the issue for you is not to name your sins; the issue for you is to simply exercise faith alone in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life; when you do, you will instantly receive Eternal Life: John 3:16, 5:24, 6:47, 20:30, 31.

John 6:47 says: "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life." NKJV [italics added]

Notice again what Jesus said in John 6:47: "…he who believes in Me (Jesus Christ) has everlasting life." It doesn't say, "will have"; it says, "has." Therefore, the very moment you believe in Jesus Christ for His promise of everlasting life, you have it (it's really just that simple; nothing more and nothing less), and it can never be taken away from you (John 10:28-29). Furthermore, the gift (Ephesians 2:8c) of everlasting life (also called eternal life in scripture) is available to every human being; there are absolutely no exceptions.

John 3:14-15, 16, 17, 18, says: "14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." NKJV

Let us now bow our hearts and take a moment to prepare for worship and learning God's Word. If there is any known sin in your life, this is the time to just cite it privately to God the Father with your thoughts directed towards Him. With your head bowed and your eyes closed, you have total privacy in your mind and soul:

The Tree of Life is a weekly teaching summary:
God’s Word is taught Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday


STUDY TITLE:


Remember our Lord’s evaluation is of the “good” we
produced in time, to see if it was “human good” or “divine good.”


This past week we noted the difference between Divine good is the Greek word, agathos or human good, the Greek word phaulos both which are mentioned in 2Co 5:10.

2Co 5:10, For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good [agathos DG] or bad [phaulos – evil or human good].

This is a very important principle concerning not just what took place on the cross concerning our “personal sins” but also what happened to the “human good” that the old sin nature produced while on earth the Cross.

We are very familiar with sins being judged for all the human race but what happen to the good things or the human good man produced with his own power? The answer is the fact that the human good is not judged but is evaluated which is different than sins which were all judged.

In other words, personal sins are judged while the production of human good is rejected.

Remember our Lord’s evaluation is of the “good” we produced in time to see if it was “human good” or “divine good.”

And the main principle that He judges by is said to be His word, the word of God.

John 12:37-49, But though He had performed so many signs before them, yet they were not believing in Him; that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, “Lord, who has believed our report?

And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” For this cause they could not believe, for Isaiah said again, He has blinded their eyes, and He hardened their heart; lest they see with their eyes, and perceive with their heart, and be converted, and I heal them.” These things Isaiah said, because he saw His glory, and he spoke of Him.

Nevertheless, many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God.

And Jesus cried out and said, “He who believes in Me does not believe in Me, but in Him who sent Me. And he who beholds Me beholds the One who sent Me. I have come as light into the world, that everyone who believes in Me may not remain in darkness.

And if anyone hears My sayings, and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. He who rejects Me, and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day.” For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me commandment, what to say, and what to speak.

Human good is that which Satan tries to steal from us and rob us by causing us to rely on the creature power rather than the power of the word and the power of the Holy Spirit; Rom 1:25.

Rom 1:25, For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Therefore, Human good must never be confused with morality or the legitimate production of the believer. There is legitimate morality and there is legitimate production of good called divine good. Therefore, Human good is the production of the believer who lives in the cosmic system and who does not rely on the power or the filling of the Spirit. Therefore, human good is not valid in God’s eyes.

Human good is simply the production of evil. All personal sins were judged on the cross while all human good is waiting to be evaluated at the “Bema Seat Judgment for believers” or at “The “Great White Throne Judgment” for the unbelievers, both angelic and human; Rev 20:11-15.

Whether it is altruism or any form of asceticism of self-sacrifice, human good is the production of the believer in Satan’s domain or kingdom, called in the Bible the cosmos or the world system. It is this world system that the Lord delivered us from says Col 1:13, For He delivered us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,

This is why to advance in the spiritual life, you must distinguish between human good and divine good; Heb 5:11-14.

Being arrogant means you have negative volition towards doctrine.

James 3:14, But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against doctrine.

In their arrogance, they are always murmuring and complaining about others while flattering others to gain an advantage over them.
Jud 1:16, These are grumblers, finding fault, following after their own lusts; they speak arrogantly, flattering people for the sake of gaining an advantage.

In dealing with some of the early problems in the beginning of the Church-age, Jude is writing, insisting, and even begging!

That they would you fight with everything you have in you for this faith entrusted to us as a gift to guard and cherish.

Jud 1:3, Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.

What has happened is that some evil people have infiltrated their ranks as our Scriptures warned us this would happen.

And therefore, beneath their pious skin are shameless scoundrels, Satan was trying to shed the grace of God and doing away with Jesus Christ, our One and Only Master.

Then in the next twelve verses he says in effect, I’m laying this out as clearly as I can, even though you once knew all this well enough and shouldn’t need reminding.

Here it is in brief: The Master saved a people out of the land of Egypt. Later he destroyed those who defected.

As Jud 1:6 says, And you know the story of the angels who didn’t stick to their post, abandoning it for other, darker missions. [But they are now chained and jailed in a black hole until the great Judgment Day.] Sodom and Gomorrah went through perverted sexual sins along with the surrounding cities that acted just like them, are another example to us.

The point being that relying upon human good and entering into legalism produces pride and pride makes one stupid; (Psa 94:8).

So the recipients were in no position to receive advanced doctrine. They were ignorant of doctrine, and added to that they had become involved in human good and the religious activity of their day.

Now, notice that the writer gives the reason why doctrine is hard to explain to certain believers in Heb 5:11, Concerning Him we have many doctrines to communicate [is the corrected translation] and hard to explain because you have become dull of hearing. They were not like that before.

They were positive for a while, then they would peel off, then they would come back, then they would peel off, etc. Finally, they regressed, to the place where they became dull of hearing.

Why?

Because once you repeat certain actions over and over again, you reach a place where you just continue to exist in that state or action. In fact, that is what the old sin nature is doing, it is “being corrupted” continually.

Eph 4:22, In reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit.

2Pe 1:2-4, Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, in order that by them you might become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.

So, notice that even though the old sin nature is dead to God and it is in a state of constant corruption, all the unbelievers will keep on getting worse and worse in eternity, says the apostle John in Rev 22:11-15, “Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and let the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and let the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.

Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.

Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.

Heb 5:12-13, For though by this time you ought to be teachers, [or teaching other people] but you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God [basic doctrines all over again], and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness not self righteousness but divine righteousness.”

And, notice next, the reason is stated…because he is a babe, or immature.

Therefore, verse 14, Heb 5:14, But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.

Preparing yourself for the study of God’s Word

Before we begin, if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ (that is— you have trusted in Him for eternal life), it is important to prepare yourself to take-in God’s Word or participating in a Communion Service, so take a moment to name, cite or acknowledge your sins privately directly to God the Father. This will assure that you are in fellowship with God the Father and the Holy Spirit’s convicting ministry, also called the convincing ministry will then be able to teach you as the Holy Spirit is the real teacher and the pastor’s message is the vehicle the Holy Spirit uses to convince you what you are learning is true or not.

1 John 1:9 says—“If we confess [simply name, cite or acknowledge to God the Father] our sins [known sins], He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins [known sins] and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness [all unknown and forgotten sins];” NKJV (New King James Version); we call this REBOUND, read the full doctrine as to “why” we need to use 1 John 1:9 to grow spiritually. REBOUND

If you have never personally believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior (that is, believed in Him for eternal life), the issue for you is not to name your sins to God; the issue for you is to believe by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life and you will be saved the very second you believe in Him:

John 6:47 says: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” NKJV

Notice again what John 6:47 says, “he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” It doesn’t say, “will have”; it says, “has.” Therefore, the very moment you believe Jesus Christ’s promise of everlasting life, you have it (it’s really just that simple), and it can never be lost or taken away from you (John 10:28-29). Furthermore, the gift of everlasting life (also called eternal life in scripture) is available to every human being; there are absolutely no exceptions.

John 3:14-18 says: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” NKJV

Let us now bow our hearts and take a moment to prepare for learning God’s Word, if there is any known sin in your life, this is the time to just cite it privately to God the Father with your thoughts directed towards Him. With your head bowed and your eyes closed, you have total privacy in your mind and soul:

Sermon: Commandment #7. Thou shall not commit adultery. COL 3:5, Consider your earthly bodies dead to immorality, impurity, passion, lust and greed.


Under Freedom we have been noting the Ten Commandments = Commandment #7 – designed for freedom in the Protection of Marriage – Exo 20:14 “You shall not commit adultery.”

Col 3:5 Therefore consider the members of your earthly body [eyes, ears, hands, feet], as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.

There are five nouns coming up in this verse and they all have to so with some different aspect of sexual sins.

The five sins mentioned are mentioned by the words, immorality, impurity, passion, evil desires, greed, which all are said to be some sort of a manifestation of demonic worship or the worship of idolatry.

1. Immorality = porneian – refers to fornication or sexual immorality between a man and a woman outside of the marital realm.

Normally fornication refers to sexual activity outside of marriage, whereas adultery usually refers to one or both who are married but having sexual relations with those outside their marriage.

There is a destructive force that happens within the body when fornication, promiscuity and adultery are committed; 1Co 6:13-18 = destructive force is the effect that these sins have upon the body.

That the destructive force is usually manifested by the man becoming impotent while the woman becomes frigid or both can no longer have any true and real response or pleasure from the sex.

That destructive force is in view in Heb 13:4 where the Bible says “Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”

“being undefiled” means that when the married man and woman decide on what is permitted and condoned in the realm of sex is between the man and the woman.

We are back to the principle of privacy and intimacy in the sexual realm and what the two agree on sexually is that which is allowed by the two adults involved.

This is not talking about salvation but your escrow blessings for time and eternity.

The body is not intended for sexual immorality, but is intended for the Lord, and the Lord is intended for the body to save, sanctify, and raise it again.

This says to get rid of immorality and all sexual looseness and to flee from impurity in thought, word, or deed.

Because any other sin which a man commits is one outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.

You were bought with a price purchased with a preciousness of the life of Christ, 1Pe 1:18-19.

Anything that attacks the female body also attacks her soul.

The reason for teaching this is for guidance and direction in a subject that God has created for the purpose of virtue, happiness, stimulation and pleasure …..and that is SEX!

When a woman is not satisfied or responsive in sex, it can lead to lesbianism or nymphomania, which is why a lot of women go to strip bars and eventually enter into lesbianism.

For the male species, his failure to function properly in the sexual realm leads him to inferior actions and eventually such sins like homosexuality.

The Bible teaches that the preparation for a great sex life is persistent daily metabolization of doctrine.

Because PVTD [positive volition towards doctrine] increases one’s ability to care for others and to satisfy their sexual desires or needs which is the attitude that is needed in the sexual relationship.

Caring for others and fulfilling their needs is a manifestation of the individual’s desires…….so that PVTD [positive volition towards doctrine] carries over into a life of caring and happiness accompanied by virtue.

immorality = porneian – refers to fornication or sexual immorality between a man and a woman outside of the marital realm.

1. Next is the accusative singular noun akathasian translated impurity which means uncleanness, religious impurity, unnatural sexual activity.

Abnormal sex includes incest, homosexuality, lesbianism, indecent exposure, masturbation, child molestation, bestiality, sodomy, and other forms of abnormal sexual activity is prohibited.

1. Incest is forbidden as we noted in Lev 18:6-17, Deut 27:20, 22; 1Co 5:1-7.

Incest is sexual relations between people classed as being too closely related to marry each other or the crime of having sexual intercourse with a parent, child, sibling, or grandchild.

2. Homosexuality is forbidden: Lev 18:22, 20:13; its penalty was death.

3. Bestiality is forbidden: Lev 18:23, 20:15. Animal and man were both killed in punishment. Deut 27:21.

4. Pimping and prostitution are also forbidden, Lev 19:29; Deut 23:17.

One writer says; “Don’t violate your daughter by making her a whore the whole country would soon become a brothel, filled with filthy and cheap sex.”

5. Rape is forbidden and punishable by death, Deut 22:25-27.

6. Other forms of abnormal sex that are forbidden include necrophilia, pederasty, voyeurism.

All of these forms of abnormal sex are in view in the noun akathasian translated impurity.

Now, impurity or the noun akathasian also refers to uncleanness and religious impurity, as we have noted.

Matt 23:27, “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.

This word refers to both moral and spiritual impurity and is actually used to describe the overall status of the O.S.N. [old sin nature] in Gal 5:19.

pathos = lustful or emotional passion, this refers to abnormal sex lust, not abnormal sex but abnormal sex lust.

In the Phallic cult of the ancient world, voyeurism was one of the main attractions and functions.

Voyeurism is obtaining sexual gratification from seeing sex organs and sexual acts and using them for sexual stimulation.

Matt 5:28 But I say to you, that everyone who looks on a woman to lust for her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.

This word pathos refers to depraved passion as found in Rom 1:26, For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural,

This word was used in classical Greek for emotions that were often stronger than man’s ability to control them.

Paul used this word three times to mean a distinct sense of perverse erotic passion, Ro 1:26, Col 3:5, 1Th 4:5.

This word is used in Rom 1:26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural,

Col 3:5 Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion,

The fourth noun mentioned is the accusative singular noun epithumian plus the adjective kaken which means evil desire or lust.

Lasciviousness = still dealing with one major problem in Colosse and in the Lycos valley which is the influence of the Phallic cult.

Lust is the overwhelming desire for something; a passionate desire; an illicit, uncontrolled, overwhelming desire which originates from the old sin nature and gains the cooperation of your volition.

Lust divorces the believer from reality, causing unrealistic expectation which eliminates understanding and using the problem solving devices.

Lust also destroys spiritual self-esteem and replaces it with inordinate desire related to self-gratification.

There are two categories of lust: unfulfilled lust and fulfilled lust.

Unfulfilled lust causes direct frustration and intensifies the desires involved.

Fulfilled lust does not bring the anticipated happiness, and therefore, operation boomerang, the third stage of reversionism, occurs.

Happiness and contentment come from relationship with God and the understanding of His grace provision, grace policy, and the use of the problem solving devices.

Lust destroys the believer’s motivation to glorify God and replaces it with self-promoting motivation.

Lust causes the believer to become dishonest with himself, and therefore, dishonest with others.

Lust divorces the believer from reality so that every mechanic of the Christian way of life is distorted.

Lust can only be overcome through spiritual momentum, spiritual growth, the advance to spiritual adulthood through PMA [positive mental attitude] of B.D. [bible doctrine]

“and greed” is the conjunction “kai [and] ten [the] and then the accusative singular noun, pleonexian which means covetousness, greedy, also refers to an insatiable appetite for sexual activity.

“which” = a qualitative relative pronoun and it should be translated which category of things…a reference to the five nouns mentioned in this verse referring to the Phallic cult.

Col 3:5 Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, [moral and spiritual] impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, or an insatiable appetite for sexual activity, which amounts to idolatry.

“amounts to” is the pre-act-ind of eimi which is estin, which category of things “keeps on being”

Col 3:5 Therefore, consider the members of your earthly body [such as your eyes, ears, feet, hands, etc.] as dead to immorality [sexual activity outside of marriage] impurity [abnormal sexual activity], passion [abnormal sex lust], evil desire [an illicit, uncontrolled, overwhelming desire for sex], and greed [an insatiable appetite or craving for sexual activity], and then a very shocking statement which keeps on amounting to idolatry or the worship of idols or demons.

The Lords Supper

According to ancient sources, one of the cruelest and most humiliating forms of punishment in the ancient world was, crucifixion.

The Jewish historian Josephus best described it following the siege of Jerusalem by the Romans in AD 70 as “the most wretched of deaths.” And stated that suicide is preferable to the cruel fate of being put on the cross.

Think of the fact that the Jewish people did not use a cross or a tree for capital punishment, therefore consider the odds of the Lord Jesus Christ having to die on a cross by the hands of the Jews—a capital punishment!

The crucifixion allowed our Lord to fulfill such prophecies as the brazen serpent being lifted up on a pole, Numbers 21:9.

Num 21:9 And Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on the standard; and it came about, that if a serpent bit any man, when he looked to the bronze serpent, he lived.

The fact that people would watch Him as He was suffering publicly was also fulfilled, Psa 22:7-8.

Psa 22:7 All who see me sneer at me; They separate with the lip, they wag the head, {saying,}

Psa 22:8 “Commit {yourself} to the Lord; let Him deliver him; Let Him rescue him, because He delights in him.”

The fact that His hands and feet would be pierced, Psa 22:16.

Psa 22:16 For dogs have surrounded me; A band of evildoers has encompassed me; They pierced my hands and my feet.

The fact that not one of His bones would be broken, Psa 34:20.

Psa 34:20 He keeps all his bones; Not one of them is broken.

The fact that they would offer The Lord Jesus Christ gall and vinegar, Psa 69:21.

Psa 69:21 They also gave me gall for my food, And for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

Isa 53:12 Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great, And He will divide the booty with the strong; Because He poured out Himself to death,

And was numbered with the transgressors; Yet He Himself bore the sin of many, And interceded for the transgressors.

Then there was the piercing of Jesus’ side, Zec 12:10.

Zec 12:10 “And I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him, like the bitter weeping over a first born.

Deut 21:22 “And if a man has committed a sin worthy of death, and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree,

Deut 21:23 his corpse shall not hang all night on the tree, but you shall surely bury him on the same day (for he who is hanged is accursed of God), so that you do not defile your land which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance.

The cross therefore was the electric chair, the gas chamber, the lethal injection of first century Rome and its many provinces and captive lands.

At different times something will trigger your memory and suddenly you will recall things or an event or a person or a situation which floods into your conscious mind.
