What am I talking about?
Yes, Jeru trap!
Very sweet and rewarding when it is done in the right circumstances.
Why shouldn’t we do it yet?
1. It is a spiritual exercise for the married and as such, should be treated that way.
It is an act that was ordained for the married by GOD, and God that reserved it for the married, knows why he did so.
You see, God has a set of rules and regulations, and if we are students of the word, then we would obey the word of God.
See what the bible says in
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
God hates Sin, and he has told us fornication is a sin.
Jeru trap goes beyond the physical i. e what our eyes can see, it is more of a spiritual exercise where a man and wife come together as one in pure Love.
An act ordained and recognized by God with his Seal on it.
So when it is done without God’s permission, it malfunctions the normal spiritual exercise.
2. It Opens you up to the attack of the devil.
When you sin against God, the spiritual covering and shield over your head is lost and the devil can penetrate the hole that has been created to cause havoc in your life.
Now imagine if it was a continuous process, you dig up more avenues for the devil to attack you, spiritually, physically, maritally and even financially.
Bible says in Rom 6:1-2
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
You cannot continue in sin, and expect all to be going on well for you. There would be issues and challenges.
That project would not just come forth.
You just see deadlocks in different areas.
So be careful and vigilant, because the devil as a roaring lion, is going about looking for whom he may devour.
So tie your belts very well, and RUN, when faced with temptations.
I repeat again RUN?
That is not the time to be speaking in tongues o.
3. You lose connection with your maker.
Do you remember what happened to Eve in the Bible?
She ate of the fruit that God had told them not to eat of.
Same with jeru trap. The fruit God has told you not to eat yet, be patient.
There is time for it.
,When you disobey and eat of it, you lose that connection from God, something dies inside of you.
As earlier said, it is a spiritual act. God sends you out of his garden of eden, where you used to find comfort, pleasure and swim in his glory.
When these act happen, there is a temporary cut off from his presence because God cannot behold sin.
He is too holy to behold sin.
[Thou art] of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity:
4. It brings about grave consequences.
Consequences can arise from just that one time .
-Sexually transmitted diseases e.g. Gonorrhea, HIV/Aids, hepatitis etc.
-People can go on to get abortions which leads to murder of the unborn child or the lady getting killed herself.
-Infertility due to various times of doing abortion or taking illicit drugs.
Asides from the physical consequences,
-Spiritual consequences can arise.
-Spiritual ties or bonds
-Spiritual husband /wives
-Jeru trap during your sleep.
-Your future children or marriage can be affected.
My Dears, please let us be very careful, in what we engage in. We might not know or see it, but these alone should make us keep ourselves till marriage.
5. It can lead to death.
Death can be both in the Spiritual realm and the physical realm.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.
There is nothing in what the devil is enticing you with. It is just to lead to your death.
He comes to steal from you, kill you and destroy you.
So why would you let him?
Yes it might look nice, but the devil doesn’t give anything for free.
He is a liar and the Father of them ALL.
Death can come spiritually, where you cant function as expected.
Your prayer life is in ruins.
You cannot command things in the spiritual realm as a child of God.
Jesus has come that he might give you life and give you more abundantly.
So why not surrender your life to him and live according to his ways. He would cover and shield you.
He would pamper and lead you right.
He would grant you your heart desires.
He would make all things work together for your good, even if they don’t seem so now.
He can pick you up from wherever you are, and turn your story around.
There is no sin that is too BIG for God.
Tell it all to him, and turn a new leaf.
God loves you!
He would never leave you!
