This article is for those who already saw pornography as an instrument of destruction to their souls and are desperately willing to come out of the controlling bondage. Meaning that I am not writing to those who still love and enjoy the sin of pornography and are not ready to stop practicing it. Firstly, you need to know that God designed SEX in a way that it is not only sweet to your body, it is also satisfying, relieving and compelling to your flesh, this implies that your body will naturally want more Sex (because it has tasted its sweetness) and will continue to crave for much more if you don’t control or discipline your flesh. It is a normal thing for your body to keep wanting Sex (because that is the way the Creator programmed it) but it is abnormal for the health of your soul and spirit (that is why one of the fruit of the Spirit is SELF CONTROL), a life that is without self control is like a city without walls, such life will be so open to demons’ control such that he or she would find himself destroying those things that took him years to build up and achieve.
Therefore, stepping out of pornography addiction involves:
1) LET YOUR BODY KNOW THE LAW. There was a time I was seriously tempted with sexual sin but after I overcame, I told God saying “Lord, if this sin is as strong as this, how then do we overcome?”, then the Lord said “Let your body know the law”, He told me that I must teach the youths this truth. I know some of you have been wrongly taught that God is not concerned about what we do with our bodies, He only looks at the hearts—But this is a terrible lie from the pit of hell and this is also very unscriptural. Bible says your body is the temple of God and God resides in this temple (1 Corinthians 3:16), it didn’t say that God resides only in your soul and spirit. Bible also says that we should present the members of our bodies as instruments of righteousness (Romans 6:13), So, the Lord told me that to weaken the strength of sexual sins, we must make the body know that it cannot always have what it wants, we must refuse to gratify the desires of the flesh even when the urge appears to be too strong and uncontrollable. The more you forcefully withdraw pornography and masturbation from your body, the more stronger your body becomes against the sin.
2) GET RID OF PEOPLE AND THINGS THAT AWAKES THE URGE. You see, pornography is not only a body problem, it’s also a mind problem. By body problem, I mean there are some times where your mind don’t want to do it but your body keep craving strongly for it but I discovered that it is more serious when your mind is the one craving for it. Therefore, it is very important that you get rid of whoever and whatever will get you thinking of this sin, if you still have pornography videos, messages and pictures on your phones and computers, you must delete all of them. In fact, you must remove yourself from every group and social media platforms that is full of these sin motivated people, you must shut down and delink from all pornography websites, you must also delete all songs and music videos that inspire you sexually from your devices. You must unfriend and break out of every relationship with ladies and men who are sin agents, by sin agents I mean these people are seductive and very operational in pulling you back into the same sin you are trying to break free from. The farther away you are from these sin agents, the purer your mind is likely to be and the closer you are to your deliverance…To be continued.
PORNOGRAPHY ADDICTION IS A MOTHER OF OTHER ADDICTIONS SUCH AS: MASTURBATION, FORNICATION, ADULTERY, PORN MAKING (SENDING NAKED VIDEOS AND PICTURES OF YOURSELF TO PEOPLE), SEXUAL PERVERSIONS (SUCH AS LESBIANISM, GAYISM, ETC) AND RAPES, MEANING THAT PORNOGRAPHY IS DESIGNED TO GIVE YOU MORE TERRIBLE PROBLEMS THAN YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!!
YOU MUST BE READY TO FIGHT THE URGE LIKE YOU ARE FIGHTING WITH A FELLOW HUMAN BEING, WHEN YOUR WHOLE BODY IS CHARGED UP WITH THE URGE AND YOU FEEL YOU MUST DO IT TO RELIEVE YOURSELF—DON’T TRY IT, THE BEST IS NOT TO DO IT BECAUSE THE MORE YOU DO IT, THE MORE YOU WILL KEEP DOING IT!!! Arise and Be Strong!!!! Amen.
