Fornication

 

How far can mankind push before marriage? What about if we are engaged to be married? Have we already a heavy heart? Guilt, shame?

Is it ok to live together not blessed in wedlock? What actually is sexual sins amongst sexually active people?

It’s human nature to explore our God-given free will to experiment with exciting new ideas spicing up our already damaged lives.

Hebrews 13-4

4 Marriage is honourable among all, and the bed undefiled, but fornicator and adulterers God will judge.

 

Matthew 19-9

9 And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.

 Fornication means unlawful sexual intercourse which includes adultery, others say it does not. Greek definition of the word fornication means to commit illicit sexual intercourse. Some say the word fornication in the bible does not mean sex before marriage but is really immorality in general. The Ten Commandments clearly say you shall not commit adultery, you shall not covet your neighbour’s house; you shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbour’s. The creator made us sexual beings, so what does the lord expect? He created desire, gave us free will then we are not able to express ourselves? 

1 Corinthians 6:18-20

18 Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?  20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which is God’s.

Fornication comes from the word pornography. In Greek, it is portrayed as an unlawful sexual activity. I have read articles that speak sex outside marriage in the Old Testament is acceptable, or it’s fine because you are not married. In The New Testament, we have a clear picture, it is strictly forbidden to both men and woman in God’s laws.

John 8:41-42

41 You do the deeds of your father. “Then they said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father—God.”

 

1 Corinthians 7-2

2 Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.

 

Sexual desire outside wedlock is clearly mentioned in the bible and is a sin which does not gratify love. We have forgotten how to love, and what true values of marriage are. We are a child of god or a channel of Christ’s life. We are made in God’s image appointed to bear his fruit. What fruit is this?

The fruit of Jesus Christ. We should be righteous and holy, expressive for the life of Christ because he is our life. Stamped, created, chosen by the Father, made holy, and cherished. Yet we choose not to take the seal of life, to be a family member in a Royal priesthood. If we are born of God the Devil cannot touch us as we are sealed by Christ, yet we have all sinned and fall short of the glory of the King of Kings.

God created us to love within the boundaries of a loving marriage, not sex there is a difference between sex and making love. Becoming one, or melding with your wife. God created love within the fabric of design. He fashioned us to be married, as we are joined to Christ, and made in his image. Satisfaction in the creator, in the Spirit, and to walk in the Holy Spirit, not in the flesh.

 

Galatians 5:19-21

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

 

1 Timothy 1-10

10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.

 

We need to trust in the King of Kings he knows what’s best for us fornication is a sin. Lust means Covet or desiring something that belongs to another. Looking at a woman in that way you can commit adultery. Impurities in any form are sinful in nature, in thought, word, or what we do. God is truth absolute, and love.

John 8-32

32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

 

Hebrews 13-18

18 Pray for us; for we are confident that we have a good conscience, in all things desiring to live honourably. 19 But I especially urge you to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner.

 

We belong to the lord and the Holy Spirit in submission. Submission means accepting or yielding to a superior force or will, an authority of another person in our case God. Compliance to the grace of the Father. We were constructed perfect, flawless in design. God’s word is absolute truth and love, he loved us now we are fallen separated from our salvation through faith. We have also forgotten to fear the Lord. I have read that because it was the Old Testament Moses did not possess all the answers, or the divine picture because The Old Testament laws were not exact until Jesus came to perfect the law and take it to another level, so this justifies god to be more relaxed in issues outside marriage.

1 Corinthians 5-1

5 deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord Jesus.

 

Revelation 21-8

8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.

 

Fornication is a sin against the creator. It is a transgression against God. Transgression means an act that goes against a law, God’s law. It is against his will, Word and his way. So is twisting scripture to justify a practise or purpose because we deem it modern. Fornication is a sin against the other person you sin against them. It’s also a sin against yourself.

 

1 Corinthians 7-2

2 Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.

 

1 Corinthians 6-18

18 Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.

 

Your body is not your own it belongs to the lord. We are to glorify the Father whilst in the flesh. Fornication in private is just the same, you may keep it a secret but God sees everything. Do you not want to inherit the kingdom of God?

It is misuse outside the marriage bond. The truth shall set you free.

 

Philippians 4-8

8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

 

Remember don’t take the good that God created and go beyond his borders, physical pleasure can become sensuality, sexual freedom can easily become immorality. Temptation draws us away from the will of God, his word, and worship, it destroys our bond, his confidence for us and our obedience is questioned.

1 Corinthians 10-13

13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

 

Mark 7:20-23

20 And He said, “What comes out of a man who defiles a man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornication, murders, 22 thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. 23 All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”

 

1 Corinthians 6-13

13 Foods for the stomach and the stomach for foods, but God will destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.

 

Exodus 22:16-17

16 If a man entices a virgin who is not betrothed and lies with her, he shall surely pay the bride-price for her to be his wife. 17 If her father utterly refuses to give her to him, he shall pay money according to the bride-price of virgins.

 

1 Thessalonians 4:3-4

 

3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honour.

 

Fornication is the same for adultery, homosexual acts, incest, and sex with animals. All are forbidden as it’s any sexual congress outside marriage.  The lord creates a woman for a man, there is an attraction, compatibility, testing and spiritual harmony, with The Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit and marriage protocol follow hand in hand for a perfect harmonious joining of the soul. Marriage is an art form, God wants us to be this:

 

1 Timothy 6:11-12

11 But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
