What Is The Main Cause Of Sin In Women?
Its origin and where it is leading!

PRIDE

SEX

LUST

PERVERSION

Here is a subject little known to many if not all women and also something many of you will hate to read, and hate me for saying, because it comes with the conviction of the Lord. It's Ok if you hate me for what I say, all I am doing is planting the seeds of truth, and this is something that I through study have only just recently gained knowledge of myself. Upon gaining this knowledge I felt pressed to waste no time in sharing it with you that you might know, see and understand how everything you do, consciously or otherwise ties into this one sin, that you may become aware of, be free of it and watchful of yourself and your actions and thoughts.

To put you in the right frame of mind as to the gravity of what I am about to share with you, I am going to start you off with some pretty serious scripture to show you just where the devil will lead you by the hand if you do not take this to heart! This is for men and women alike, but it is a major epidemic among women! These are the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, we are in the end days. If you do not believe it, you lie only to yourself and cheat yourself of eternal life with Christ!

These are the 8 sins of the last days to watch for:

"But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars - their place will be the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death." Revelation 21:8 (NIV)
 
"In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example to those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire." Jude v. 7 (NIV)

Ok, now that I have you in the right frame of mind, we can begin. Pride, the pet sin of Satan, it was his pride that caused him to challenge God, his creator and be cast out of heaven faster than a bolt of lighting. All sin comes from pride, it is our pride that gets in our way and stops us from confessing our sins before man, by telling us that everyone else out there is without sin, blameless, and that nobody else has ever done any of the things that we have and how embarrassing it will be to tell all our little secrets. By doing this it causes us to forget that scripture encourages us to confess our sins one to another. He does this for the simple reason that a person who is willing to humble themselves before God and man has no room for pride in his life, which leaves no way for sin to come in and defile. It causes us also to forget that all things done in the dark will be brought in to the light, screamed from the rooftops for all to hear and know.

"So do not be afraid of them. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known." Matthew 10:26 (NIV)
 
"Is anyone of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is anyone of you sick? He should call on the elders of the body of Christ to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." James 5:13-16 (NIV)

Healing is not strictly associated with the physical body. Any time that you are hurting, be it physical, financial or otherwise, you need to re-assess yourself, confess your sins, repent and be free of it through the forgiveness of God through Jesus Christ His Son.

"If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives." 1 John 1:8-10 (NIV)

Now for the big question, where did it begin. Yes, you guessed it, the original sin. Here is the tough part: swallow your pride and listen, study and understand that this is a warning to bring you to repentance for sin you could not possibly know you had been involved in unless the Lord has already revealed it to you and you willfully failed to repent. So be encouraged and come with me back to the beginning, to the book of Genesis, from here I will show you where it began and show you how it has stayed with us and will continue with us until the end, and I will show you how not to be dragged down with the sinking ship.

"The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame." Genesis 2:25 (NIV)

At this point, there was no sin, they were naked and unashamed, they had nothing to hide, there was nothing to make them feel as though they were under a spotlight, and no one was out to expose them for anything.

We know that here is where Eve meets with the Serpent who is the Devil while she is near or under the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Satan was ticked off at his eviction from heaven and went to find a way to get back at God for his humiliation, he knew that Adam's will was too strong because He was created by God. He went after Eve because she was weaker. She too was created of God but she was also taken from man.

He questions her as to whether God said they would 'die' if they ate this tree or not. Eve did not understand that when God told them they would die, He was referring to the fact that to have knowledge of good and evil means you are able to discern right from wrong, and choosing to do evil brings death. For those who know Christ as their Lord and Savior and walk in holiness and righteousness before him, there is no fear of death, but for those who choose a life of defiling themselves with all that God has commanded them not to do, for these people there is punishment awaiting them. Just as a parent punishes the child who misbehaves, just as the law of today's society punishes criminals for their illegal activities, for those who are unrepentant, there is Hell. He then proceeded to convince her that she would not die but that she would have knowledge and become like God herself. And what does Eve do when she learns that it has the power to change her and give her all this knowledge and understanding? She lets sin in; it went from being forbidden fruit to something that you would put on a grocery list, like toilet paper.

She thought to herself, "Well, it is good for food, it looks pretty nice too, I know we were told not to touch it or eat the fruit, but, I just have to know what it would be like to have all the knowledge that God did not give me, I am curious as to this good and evil, what is it?"

"When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it." Genesis 3:6 (NIV)

Do you see what just happened? She ate it first; instantly all of that knowledge would have come rushing in, she first had that knowledge of good and evil, she knew and understood that there was punishment to be handed out to her for eating it, so what did she do? She gave some to her husband who was there with her, and he ATE it. Not only did she get herself into sin, she brought her husband along for the ride as well, she in turn using her new knowledge of evil and the wiles of her now ungodly self, pushed her own husband into sin with her. She knew she was naked and I will guarantee you all the money I have she really worked it to get him to eat that fruit! Just like Delilah with Sampson, she would have played the whore to entice him because she did not want to be punished on her own. Do you see how quickly the sin infected her, like a virus worming its way deeper and deeper, trying to sink its roots down deep within as quickly as possible so as to be hard to uproot.

The word desirable used in the NIV translation of this scripture when looked up in the Hebrew lexicon is Goodrick & Kohlenberger number 2773 (Strong's number 2530), Hamad, and this is its definition, this will show you what her heart was really saying:

To desire, to covet, long for, to be desirable, be precious or costly. Refers to inordinate, ungodly, ungoverned selfish desire, whether it is for the silver and gold of idols, prostitutes or sex, or land and fields.

(Keeping in mind that an idol is anything that you covet or you are drawn to in such a way that it traps you with its spell, like sparkling jewelry and diamonds, or watching endless hours of television where you allow the devil free reign to flood your spirit with all kinds of evil as you let down your spiritual guard and relax for the evening.)

Now do you see what her true intent was? It was a self serving, ungodly desire for a piece of fruit, she was completely out to serve herself and her pride rose up and told her she deserved it. One bite couldn't hurt, could it?

Guess again EVE!

The very next verse (Genesis 3:7) shows us just how quickly their eyes were opened; they KNEW they were naked and they were ASHAMED. Now just what did they have to be ashamed of exactly? They were husband and wife; you can't tell me that they had spent all this time together in the garden and it just slipped their notice that the other was not sporting the latest the Paris runway has to offer. Of course not: they were THE single most perfect human beings on the face of the earth, the creation God poured everything into, made in His image. But it was not until Eve first and then Adam ate the fruit and gained the knowledge of the perverse and evil side of sex that they became 100% conscious of what they looked like and allowed the devil to plant the seeds of lust, shame, pride and sex. All in that split second, they lost everything, the holiness given them by God, the opportunity to eat from the tree of life and never know the bitter taste of death, the ability to live in constant communion with God and see him face to face.

Imagine, childbirth with little to no pain, nothing but incredible joy during love making, soft fertile ground every year during planting season, but instead this is what the Lord in his awesome majesty had to give them and in turn us. Come with me to Genesis 3:16 and read What God had in store for Eve and all woman-kind because of her sin.

To the woman he said, "I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you." Genesis 3:16 (NIV)

Now I know that scripture just ticked off every woman's liberation believer out there. Well it gets even worse girls, because it's time to translate that word desire again, this time it is my belief that this word was absolutely mistranslated, the Hebrew lexicon shows that this would in the context it was originally put in, does not say desire at all but sin and judgment.

Its reference number is Goodrick & Kohlenberger number 9592 (Strong's number 8669) and the original word is Tesuqah and here is its translation:

Yearning, longing desire. Appears only three times in the Old Testament, two of which refer to the strong attraction between the sexes, one in the context of love and joy (Song of Solomon 7:10) and the other in the context of sin and judgment (Genesis 3:16). The third occurrence depicts sin as a crouching animal, desiring to pounce on Cain (Genesis 4:7).

See, I told you that you wouldn't like it, but it gets worse for all you women who abhor the idea of a man being in a position of authority over them. Let me humbly translate it for you the way I believe it should read:

"I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your judgment for your sin will be your husband, and he will rule over you." Genesis 3:16 (Skye)

You can bet all the money you have that this upset Eve too, as she had opened herself up to her pride; that had to smart. Ok, let's re-cap, the FIRST sin was her desire, ungodly desire to please herself; the SECOND was to entice her husband through deception; the THIRD was her un-repentance for her sin as she did not accept the blame but pointed her finger at the snake she allowed to deceive her. But what really sealed the deal was that her husband was to be her headship, her pride rose up again at being told that she was easily deceived and needed someone to watch over her! No one likes to be told they are incompetent and Eve was no exception. It was the cherry on the cake, her heart was set: through her new knowledge she found that using sex and lust and her husband's lust for her was the way for her to get what she wanted. Just like that the sexual dam broke. From this point on everywhere you look in the bible, every book, speaks of women going against the judgment of God. You will find women playing the harlot through either sexual immorality or through the worshipping of false Gods AND using sex to turn their husbands away from the one true God as well!

If you go against a judge's ruling in this day and age, you are thrown in jail and maybe you'll get out someday when you are old and withered, but women have been going against the judgment of God since God sent Adam and Eve out of the garden of Eden. Women refuse to believe that they were also included in that judgment; it was not only for Eve but for all of her children. Through her all mankind was born of the sin nature, meaning their hearts from birth were selfish and not inclined towards God but to the pleasing of their own desires. Women were the same then as they are today: they have blinded themselves willingly to the fact that God's word spoken through his prophets tells us that he is storing up his wrath for a fearsome and terrible day of judgment, and let me tell you… court WILL be in session and that no one who has not repented and confessed this sin will escape the penalty of the second death in the lake of fire.

God knew that once women had tasted the pure gifts of God in their perverted and evil form that they would never willing give them up and accept what the Lord had planned for them. So He in turn went and began to warn men to be wary of women and all their deceptive trickery.

God's punishment in itself was not something to even be upset over. (Well maybe the pain in child bearing part, because believe me, I've been there and done that. It was the most incredible experience of my life, but the pain, now that I did not like one bit. Thank you Lord for the wonderful advances in medicine: can I get an amen from all the low pain threshold mothers out there!)

God's punishment was to be rejoiced at. God decided that to protect us from being deceived again and falling into even greater sin that He would place man in the position of protector to look out for us the way God himself does, just not on such a grand scale. Now don't freak out, He didn't say men shall be lords of the earth and women their footstool. Men are not perfect either, but their inclination is not to the emotional side of life, they don't allow their emotions to hold sway as we women do. If you look at it honestly, they do tend to think more before they leap than we do and that was the whole point. He just said that they would protect us from doing something dumb and blowing any chance of spending an eternity with Christ.

We all know how impulsive we can be, a shopping spree here, a little spending of the money there and we feel really happy, but essentially what did we just do? We spent all our hard earned cash on something to make us look good. SEX, it sells and it's the biggest marketing angle out there. It seems that you can't break into the big time acting world anymore without the first movie you release being your "accidentally shown on the internet" sex tapes, how crazy is that? (Honestly, who in their right mind really wants to see that? If you are getting turned on by some 17 year old having sex, then you have real issues and you are in some real trouble.)

We are no longer allowed to be normal women and mothers; we have to be multi-tasking women, able to do everything all by ourselves, and who told us this? We did! And why, do you ask? To further our defiance of God's judgment handed down to us, because we are too proud to admit that we can't do it all by ourselves, God knew that, that's WHY he created us man and woman, as a help meet, to help each other, He never meant for us to do it all alone, but as a team, together.

The Lord god said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So the man gave name to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field. 

But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So the Lord caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping; he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman for she was taken out of man." Genesis 2:18-23 (NIV)

Without our husband to remind us that we are on a budget and have bills to pay, helping us with the children and cleaning the house and putting limits on our credit cards, we would spend ourselves into bankruptcy quicker than you can blink, but at least you would look good, right?! That is, until the fashion gurus tell us that the style has changed and we are left back at square one with, oh my gosh! An out of date wardrobe (gasp)! Is it getting through? Do you see how much we need that grounding force in our lives that God provided? We like to think we don't need saving, but we do and it's from ourselves!

But because we refused to accept what God saw was good, He had to go unto the men and caution them. Men were designed to be attracted to a woman, to the woman God had created specifically for them. How neat is that? We were created for just one person, we don't have to peddled around like a community bicycle, we are meant to be cherished by one man! Aren't we stupid, we passed this up for the power that only sex can provide, power that last as long as your skins elasticity! Then what? Where do you go from here? You join what I call the LOAD, or the League of Old Age Deniers, women who have their plastic surgeons on speed dial, waiting on the edge of their chairs for that miracle cure to stop the aging process. Wake up and smell the funeral home flowers, you will die! You will get old! And you know what, so will the men. We were meant to grow old together, everything will sag on both of us and we aren't supposed to care, it is supposed to endear us to each other. Let me spell it out: FREEDOM FROM VANITY!

This was the escape route the Lord gave us to get away from the sin of sexual perversion, lust, and pride. But no, we don't need his "hand-outs." We can get what we want for ourselves, can't we ladies of the "Liberation" movement. Do not get me started on how much of a passionate hatred I have towards the women's liberation movement, it will cause me great sin and a great many curse words to express it! All this we have done to get away from the righteous judgment of GOD. And all this we will do to keep the men from finding out their true destiny handed down by God. Come with me now, if you dare, to the book of Deuteronomy.

"He must not take many wives, or his heart will be lead astray. He must not accumulate large amounts of silver and gold." Deuteronomy 17:17 (NIV)

This was God's warning to the king, for that fact any king. Look what happened to all of them, they were all lead into sin by their wives by taking part in the sex rituals of their foreign wives and allowing them to follow after their own false gods and worshipping along side of them, see how it all snuck in!

King David, saw the naked Bathsheba bathing, took her even though she was married and then killed her husband. The child that resulted from their union died, because what David did was contempt in the eyes of the Lord. He repented and God took away their sin, but the son born to them was condemned by God to die, as in those days, the sins of the father were passed down to the children. Because David repented a second son, Solomon, was given to them. He was wisest man ever to walk the face of the earth. He had more wives than any other king in the bible, he allowed them to set up their shrines and altars. Read 1 Kings 11 to see the full version of how his wives, women God had command His people not to marry, turned his heart away after their own gods. His sons, those who would be king after him, were raised by their mothers to follow after these other gods. Their hearts were twisted at a young age, they grew up embracing all that was evil and immoral. Every time one of them became king, their mother who trained them up in the ways of evil is mentioned. Any time a good king came into power, it simply says he was born of the house of David, for example: 1 Kings 14:21 speaks of Rehoboam, his mother's name was Naamah and she was an Ammonite, he caused Judah to set up Asherah poles to worship Ashera, a foreign god. They set up high places where both men and women participated in sexual orgies with male shrine prostitutes. The word of God portrays it as "engaging in detestable practices," they even sacrificially burned their children alive to the god Molech to the beat of loud drums to drown out the screams.

But a good king is seen in 1 Kings 13:1-5. Here is a king sent by God to bring down the high places brought into being by the mothers of the previous kings. What could have been more satisfying to each of those women to see an entire nation turned away from their God to worship hers, what power, pride and sexual perversion?

Read with me from the book of the prophet Jeremiah at 44:15-28. This whole passage show us just how well women can warp the minds of men for evil, to the point where they have turned from God the King of Heaven and replaced him with a woman! 'The Queen of Heaven', that just makes me sick, they make silly little cakes and burn incense to this 'Queen.' The men knew what the women were doing, and they did not stop them or even stand against them, instead they rallied the cause to the point where God challenged them:

"Go ahead then, do what you promised! Keep your vows! But hear the word of the Lord all Jews living in Egypt: 'I swear by my great name,' says the Lord, 'that no one from Judah living anywhere in Egypt will ever again invoke my name or swear, "As the Sovereign Lord lives." For I am watching over them for harm, not good; the Jews in Egypt will perish by the sword and famine until they are all destroyed. Those who escape the sword and return to the land of Judah from Egypt will be very few. Then the whole remnant of Judah who came to live in Egypt will know whose word will stand-- mine or theirs." Jeremiah 44:25-28 (NIV)

Ouch!

(A little side note to all you Catholics in regards to Mary the mother of Jesus, take a note from the mouth of her Son and read Luke 11:27-28, or maybe it's not in your version of the bible. Oh please, allow me:

As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowed called out, "Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you." He replied, "Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it." Luke 11:27-28 (NIV)

Try this on for size, also from the mouth of Jesus, son of the Most High God in relation to the Greatest Commandment, if you are wondering exactly what it is you should obey to be blessed:

"The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this, 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' [Nope, no Mary there! -Skye] The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." Mark 12:29-34 (NIV)

Well that's odd, I was sure if she was to be idolized Jesus would have mentioned her at least once when he was giving out His greatest commands, wouldn't you? Let us see exactly who Jesus said was His mother:

Then Jesus' mother and brothers arrived. Standing outside, they sent someone to call him. A crowd was sitting around him, and they told him, "Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you." "Who are my mother and my brothers?" he asked. Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, "Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God's will is my brother my sister and mother." Mark 3:31-35 (NIV)

Wow, He just missed a really great opportunity to glorify His mother, an ordinary woman who had a special baby. She was pleasing unto the Lord at the time for she was pure and she was of the line of David, so why did He pass up the opportunity? Because if she were anything more than a mere human being she would have realized fully who He was and what He came here to do, but instead she was there with her other sons' to collect Him because they thought He was crazy (Mark 3:21)!

So you can see just how much God thought of their so called "Queen of Heaven," yet you still choose to worship yours with your 'Hail Mary's' and burn your incense and stink up the nose of God with its foul aroma!)

God has called us to repentance just as He called them. As we saw, after a time, God no longer called them to repentance, He gave them over to the lie, the desires of their heart- the vanity, the desire to lust and be lusted after, envy, lesbianism and pride. Think you have never been involved in lesbianism? Think again, how many straight men do you hear running around asking other men, "Do you think my butt looks fat in this?" Our form of lesbianism is really perverted, just because it doesn't involve actual physical sex, what it is does not change. For example: what is this need for groups of women going to the bathroom together? If a man volunteers to go to the bathroom with another he's labeled a queer for life (and no I am not afraid to speak out against homosexuality, if God says it's an abomination, then that's what it is!), but for women it has become the norm, or shopping sprees where you all parade yourselves around in different outfits for other women to see. Let me give you a scripture that speaks volumes in just a few words.

"Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another." Romans 1:24 (NIV)

Do you see the change? In the beginning, in early scripture we see that God gave them over to the things which they desired from within, things they secretly desired. They desired a king, so He gave them Saul, a king who took the best of everything he saw for himself, soldiers, women, food and livestock, all because they failed to realize they already had a King- God himself. They wanted to worship foreign gods so He handed them over to foreigners to be put in bondage. But in this scripture we see that they were already doing the sinful things that their wicked hearts desired, the sexual perversion, sodomy, homosexuality, lesbianism, vanity and the most evil of all, the molestation, rape and abuse of children by both men and women.

Now for the harsh reality, we can see just how much humans as a whole seem to really enjoy watching movies where people take the act of love making and turn it into a public act, acceptable anywhere, anytime. Through video pornography, magazines, in the cinema, on prime time television with shows such as "Sex in the City," "Queer as Folk," "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" and "The L Word," the list of sexually perverted shows that are now a socially acceptable thing goes on and on and they are all an Abomination. Not just the act of doing it, but the people too! We live in a day when homosexuals that clearly missed Genesis 18 and Genesis 19:1-29 let fly in the face of God and claim "He made me the way I am!" He destroyed an entire city because of the rape, homosexuality, lesbianism and child molestation.

But this, all this, doesn't even come close to what is filling up the cup of God's wrath, the devastation that is caused by the sick and perverted people that are guilty of this heinous sin, those who abuse, beat, rape, sodomize and physically molest a child. All my life until I was too big and their risk of exposure became to great, I endured it through my father and his brother. I look at my sweet baby girl and I am overwhelmed that a man or woman could desire or even find her or any other child sexually appealing. It leaves me in tears and ready to vomit and it leaves me scared as I lie there in bed at night and know that at a minimum 8 out of every 10 children in the world will not go to sleep in safety, but even at an incredibly young age will hide in suitcases and closets and under the bed so that they can't find them to hurt them, or because there is an SOB out there who has bought them to use as prostitutes, or just because they only get turned on by small children. It makes me sick to think that if I gathered up 100 children between the ages of 5 and birth, 80 of them have been enduring that torture all their lives, powerless to do anything about, their life is an everyday nightmare.

If this does not enrage you, you are not worthy to be called a child of God. If you will not stand against these Blatant acts of disregard of the word of God, then you are not His sons or daughters. We Christians have been so frightened of dealing with these issues, that they have been left so long unchecked, that it is now against the law to speak out against it. There are now laws that these people do not have to tell anyone what they do, apparently they have a 'right to privacy.' They call it 'strange love' or 'misplaced love' when a mother or father claims to be in love with their own child. They pander it off with names like incest, and they are now trying to make it legal for a parent to have sex with their child and it will no longer be against the law if their child is about the age of twelve. A child could not possibly want to have sex at that age and especially not with their mother or father! And what about the word of God? Where is its part in all this!? Do you not see how the devil has been allowed by us to come in and take over this world by our own unwillingness to draw the line and say "No more!" You have all buried your head in the sand for so long you don't care anymore.

I don't want to hear from you that it makes you sad to hear about it. Get up and do something about it! Stand on the street and scream at the top of your lungs "God is outraged by the abominations taking place under the roofs of 'church goers and pastors.' Oh yes, my father was a 'minister' and a police officer before that. No one, not even my willfully blind mother would ever suspect such an upstanding member of the community of such an unspeakable act. Yeah, right! It just made it easier for him to get at other children when we got too big, through Sunday School and through religious education in the grade schools.

God only has two things on His to-do list now (But for all of you nit pickers out there perhaps not in this order), take His true children home, those who will stand up and fight for the gospel and secondly judgment day. He's not going to fix this broken world; it is not His. He gave it over to the devil, He doesn't want it! He's going to destroy it!

They used two words sinful desires to interpret just one Greek word Epithymia in the New Testament. To really punch home exactly what Paul was trying to say, let's take a look at the Greek Lexicon and see for ourselves, shall we:

(Goodrick & Kohlenberger number 2123 or Strong's number 1939) Epithymia from epithymeo (Goodrick & Kohlenberger number 2121 or Strong's number 1937), to desire greatly. Desire, longing. As a cognate of the verb epithymeo, it signifies a desire for something in particular, a longing or inclination of the affections toward some specific object. Though it may be used for all kinds of desires, it is often the ethical or moral character of one's desires which is in view. Thus the New Testament used good or righteous desires (Philippians 1:23; 1 Thessalonians 2:17), or forbidden or unrighteous desires, especially if used in the absolute sense (Mark 4:19; John 8:44; Romans 1:24, 6:12, 7:7-8 both instances may refer to sexual desire, cupidity or libido; Romans 13:14; Galatians 5:16; Ephesians 2:3, 4:22; Colossians 3:5; I Thessalonians 4:5; 1 Timothy 6:9; 2 Timothy 2:22, 3:6, 4:3; Titus 2:12, 3:3; James 1:14-15; 1 Peter 1:14, 2:11, 4:2-3; 2 Peter 1:4, 2:10, 2:18, 3:3; 1 John 2:16-17; Jude 16 and 18). Three other words are semantically similar and it is helpful to discriminate the difference in meaning between them. Most closely related to Epithymia is the word pathos (Goodrick & Kohlenberger number 4079 or Strong's number 3806), feeling, passion, state of mind. Pathos was widely used for any dominant mood, emotional state (or emotion itself), affection, or passion. It was any force that moved the soul toward a certain desire. By the time the New Testament was written, pathos seems to have acquired the narrow connotation of erotic impulse, sexual passion, and amatory desire. In two instances pathos is qualified by epithymia (Colossians 3:5; 1 Thessalonians 4:5). Most scholars view pathos as the passive condition of the soul, its potential emotional energies, and epithymia as the active expression of pathos, that which springs from passion. Pathos is the force or impulse of mood, emotion, feeling, or affection, and epithymia is the unleashing and directing of it towards certain objects.

They weren't just inwardly desiring, they were doing. We dress when we go out because we not only want to get guys to notice us, whether we are single or not, but because we also want to make other girls jealous of the way we look, how thin we are, the clothes we wear and to see just how much of our boobs and waist and legs we can have showing all at once. Even animals only show off what they have to attract a mate, it is sad to say that animals can conduct themselves with more decency than we humans. You will notice that I phrase all my statements to include myself, because aside from abusing my child I have been guilty of it all.

If you have ever dressed to make another girl jealous or have been jealous of how another girl looks, you are guilty of lesbianism and you will go to hell if you do not confess and repent. If you have trouble with dressing appropriately, ask yourself if Christ would be ashamed of you or not if He returned right now. Don't let Him find you nearly naked and not undressing for a shower, you don't have to be covered from head to foot, you just need to use discretion and holy self respect. There are parts of your body that are nobody else's business, keep it that way. A boob is a boob, and a butt is a butt, if you've seen one you've seen them all and nobody really needs to see yours! If you are using your body as a means to attract a man, he'll only be there as long as your body looks good, then you are back at square one have to start over again. Work at finding a godly partner from the inside out and you will find a keeper!

The Lord has had enough and he has given us over to the sinful desires of our hearts to the degrading of our bodies with one another. The Lord is not just talking about sex and sodomy, he is talking about vanity. If you can't walk out of your door without some form of make-up on, and can't pass a mirror without looking in it, you have a problem! Your heart is supposed to shout, "It is not I that liveth, but Christ that liveth in me!" (Galatians 2:20) Do you want people meeting you, an imperfect being, born of a sin nature, someone that needs make-up to keep from scaring young children, or do you want them to see Christ who is within, He who makes all things beautiful in His time, a perfect being of love and all that is good?

Tough choice huh! Please know that I'm not against make up, I even own it, but that's the key, I own it not the other way around, I don't need it to feel beautiful! I may not be the most beautiful person in the world, but then I don't really care about that. My sister back in Australia told me I was ugly all my life and put me down and told me and everyone she met that I was a bi***. In her opinion she is some kind of martyr, she believes she was the only one of us kids that was molested by our father and his brother who he let live with us for about five years, when in truth all three of us were. She is a miserable person and she fights with her husband verbally and physically but that's OK, she has her house, her bachelors degree, her car, her job, yet I am the one who is happy and with Christ and she is now uglier as a person than anyone I have ever met. Instead of being devoted to God, she is devoted to protecting our father and uncle and the family name and refuses to turn them in to the police. The family name doesn't amount to dirt, unless you are one of the descendants of twelve tribe of Israel. My father and uncle are men that claim to know God and also molest their own children! She also believes she knows God. As you can see, I really don't care about her opinion, and you should not care about the opinions of those around you in regards to your physical looks; you must never let anyone reduce you to your looks! You should only ever care about the person God sees you as.

We have replaced the knowledge that we are fearfully and wonderfully made creatures, children of the Most High God, and heirs with His Son for worldly pride, and a worldly value has been placed on our heads. I, who have also fallen prey to feeling worthless, am genuinely saddened by women that will reduce their self worth to a lump of fatty breast tissue if they don't have a large chest, the perfect nose, a slender waist, or are a little too short for their liking. They will unnecessarily put themselves through horrendous surgeries to change their looks to please man. They forget that God designed them to look the way they do, and that they are wonderfully and beautifully made, and I as a woman know just how easy it is to succumb to the idea that nobody will think you are beautiful or want you if you don't meet a ridiculous list of demands for what you should look like. He made us all different, He did not make us all look like the half starved waifs on the cover of magazines and He never intended us to. Not all men desire that look. There are a great many men out there that like a little meat on the bones, what do those men do, accept a bag of bones? Of course not! Why would they when God already has made exactly what they want?

We have degraded our bodies, we have pierced them, we have sold them, mutilated them and we have not been chastened with our virginity, we did not hold it with the regard of a precious gift that can only be given once to the man or woman we wish to spend the rest of our lives with. It is something that once it's gone it can never be gotten back. Sure they even have a surgery to do that for women too, but it's not real, it can never be the same. To be chastened is to know that your body is a sacred thing that will not be used and abused and that is a truly wonderful thing. I may have had my virginity robbed from me as a very small child, but as a woman, there is nothing more beautiful to me than knowing my husband is my first and will be my last. We, for some insane reason get hung up on the idea that having sex with the same man for the rest of your life is a bad thing, and that is sad.

To put it bluntly a penis is a penis and that's all there is to it. Love making is like riding a bike, you keep trying till you get it right. No it won't be incredible every time, and sometimes it will be for comfort in times of hardship and grief, but over time, it only gets better. It may not always be blow your socks off better, but in a way that's hard to describe, it just does, like returning home after being away for a long time, the comfort of the familiar, knowing your partner inside and out and what they enjoy, what drives them crazy. You don't have to keep guessing, it's more relaxed. You don't have that barrier of the unknown. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Because of my childhood I never let anyone get close to me as I got older, thanks to my father and my uncle. I had a problem with masturbation, somewhere along the way I learned how to do it and had been practicing since I was four years old until I was 17 or 18. I and my brother and sister all knew how and we were sex educated by cartoon videos when I was 5 or 6. Sex and relationships became something fearful to me, I just was never able to let anyone in that door, so much so, that people thought I was going to become a nun. My sister however went the other way, she could not remember how many partners she had had by the age of fourteen, a very sad thing. She allowed her body which by then had no value to her whatsoever to become a learning tool for inexperienced young men to use so that they would know what to do with other girls.

My brother, he turned to alcohol, and girls that look a lot younger than they are. Even as a young boy he had a new girlfriend every few days, something that didn't change as he grew older. He was engaged at sixteen to a girl and after he slept with her he was hooked. She used sex as her tool of control and he was stuck in a relationship where she was threatening to kill herself if he left her, all that kind of non-sense. Sex, it ruined both of them and nearly me. Unwanted sex, sex that none of us asked for, we were just babies. I remember distinctly the sound of my fathers heart beat, when he would come in at night, it haunted my dreams. I had a real problem with just the sound of my own heartbeat at night if I covered my ear accidentally I could hear it and not be able to sleep. It left me with the same nightmare every night, over and over again.

I remember my sister French kissing me and rubbing her self on me when I was five and she was six pretending we were having sex. I even had a 'boyfriend' in a three or four year up the street I was about the same age. We used to go in my room and make out, I showed him how to do it, but even then we were choosing our paths, he and she fed their desire and I drowned mine. I went my whole life till the age of 19 just having crushes, but never really desiring to be with anyone. I even was beginning to think that maybe I was a lesbian, a lie the devil was trying to use to push me further from God. But that was for me something that always grossed me out being female and know how the body works, there was no way I could ever even think of doing it. That year 1999, even though I was not saved, I asked God for my husband. This is what I asked for, and He delivered:

Lord, I am lonely, I have been alone all my life, I have never had sex and I committed myself to not doing it and I want my husband, I am tired of being alone, I want him to be six foot tall, with brown hair and brown or tan skin, with broad shoulder and a tapered waist, nice muscles and strong, not skinny. I want him to know you and be gentle and kind to me, but tough when he needs to be, I like a square type jaw with a cleft, big hands that look like they actually know how to work, nice feet and a hairy chest and I want him to come from a country like America or something, somewhere different, oh yeah, I want to know that he is the one when I see him.

PS. I want him by Christmas.

I asked the Lord for all this in the end of August or the beginning of September, Daniel moved to Australia from America on the second of December, the only difference was that he was six foot and one inch tall. I was working 8 to 12 hours a day at this time of year and we officially started dating on the thirteenth and two weeks after that we decided that we wanted to marry each other.

I can honestly say, that after waiting so long for exactly what I wanted and God decided to give me, that if my husband passed away now or thirty years from now, I would not re-marry. For me it could never compare; no one could ever match up or even come close to him. I could never let another be intimate with me; the Lord knows my heart and that this is true. He was and is my first and only true love, but that is just a personal point for me, the Lord says it is better to marry than burn for sinful desire (1 Corinthians 7:9), if you are widowed and lonely, seek the Lord for a partner.

"So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices." Psalm 81:12 (NIV)

This scripture talks purely of the Lord's desire to deliver us from bondage, but we in the foolish stubbornness of our hearts do not want to be rescued, so He who has given us freedom of choice, has left us to do what we want. And if we do not confess it and repent for it we will hear these sickening words, "I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers." (Matthew 7:21-23.) They refused to follow God's warning and so we see again He gave them over to the desires of their heart! Women have truly developed their destructive skills into an art form and men are warned to be wary of it! The book of Proverbs is filled with verse after verse, warning men against the ways of women (an adulteress is any woman that would have someone lust after her, lust after/covet something that was not hers or use her body to manipulate a man or woman for anything):

"It will save you also from the adulteress, from the wayward wife with her seductive words, who has left the partner of her youth and ignored the covenant she made before God. For her house leads down to death and her paths to the spirits of the dead. None who go to her return or attain the paths of life." Proverbs 2:16-19 (NIV)

Be wary of a woman who would even give up the man she has loved all her life to gain her own selfish desires, she will chew you up and spit you out!

"For the lips of an adulteress drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil; but in the end she is bitter as gall, sharp as a double-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave. She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths are crooked, but she knows it not." Proverbs 5:3-6 (NIV)

How often do we see men that hate to hear the voice of their wife or girlfriend, it grates on their nerves like nails on a chalkboard. Going home is the worst part of their day. They would rather sit in three hours of bumper to bumper traffic with a tooth ache than spend five minutes alone with their partner. She is the gall that makes his stomach turn, the sharp double-edged sword that cuts him down, she thinks of nothing but herself.

"Keeping you from the immoral woman, from the smooth tongue of the wayward wife. Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes, for the prostitute reduces you to a loaf of bread, and the adulteress prays upon your very life." Proverbs 6:24-26 (NIV)

By the time she are finished with you, you won't have a penny to your name, she literally will reduce you to the crust of bread you get at the soup kitchen.

"A wife of noble character is her husband's crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones." Proverbs 12:4 (NIV)

To find out what a wife of noble character is you can look up Proverbs 31:10-31, or you can read my article on this website 'The fallen housewife… Redeemed!' for a more in-depth look into it. But plainly put, you are either your husband's pride and joy because everything you do is out of selfless love, or you are like cancer in the bones; you are more painful to him than anything you could ever imagine. A husband and wife are supposed to be the epitome of love through the sacrifice and laying down of your own individualism to become one with your partner and Christ, all that is sweet in life, a refuge unto each. Coming home should not be like high noon at the OK corral and being in public together should not be a World War III event.

"A foolish son is his father's ruin, and a quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping." Proverbs 19:13 (NIV)

Niggity- Nag, the wife who will not shut up! When I checked the meaning of the word used to derive 'constant dripping,' it was explained thus: Complaining: the destruction intended by the tongue. Complaining is the wearing down of another person with constant repetition of a known fact that the other cares little for or else they would actually listen to what you are saying.

"Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife." Proverbs 21:9, 25:24 (NIV)

I love this verse simply because it is so true it was put in twice, verbatim. How many of you grew up in a home with parents who fought all day long? Didn't you wish you could live somewhere else, or go back to the way it was before it began when life was good? This is the wife who is never satisfied, nothing is ever to her standards or satisfaction and this is the husband who either only married her for free sex or just gave up trying to please her. It all leads to sin, with either one of them falling into the sin of adultery to get what they are missing at home or to just plain old get away from home.

"A quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping on a rainy day; restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand." Proverbs 27:15-16 (NIV)

A woman with no restraint is a woman who can not be trusted. If she can't keep her mouth shut for at least part of the day, she is no good to anybody; nobody likes a big mouth or a gossip or a woman who likes to do nothing but fight because she is unhappy. The whole world has to be put on hold because it's not going her way.

Wives have as a whole become greedy and lazy; they want everything and don't want to do anything unless it suits them, they are no longer a blessing to their husbands, they are no longer a help mate but a self-serving burden.

We are supposed to be a blessing from God, not Cruella Deville! Here, see for yourselves:

"He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD." Proverbs 18:22 (NIV)
 
"Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the LORD." Proverbs 19:14 (NIV)
 
"A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life." Proverbs 31:10-12 (NIV)

Women have accepted the lie of women's liberation as it furthers their desires and fuels the fires of their pride. The word submit or submission used in the bible is loosely translated as an act of love; anything you do for someone else is not done because you are forced to or because you want to make a good impression, but because you love that person no matter who they are and you want to do something for them to show them your love, without pride or conceit, without seeking to receive praise for what you do. This is the way God intended a husband and wife to behave towards one another, both seeking to serve the other and make their life better, easier and more joyous and filled with love and respect for one another, respect for your husband in the position of protector and counsel that God gave him, and respect for the wife, the weaker sex, for her willing and joyful, and more importantly grateful acceptance of the fact that God cared enough about her well-being and her salvation that He gave her a godly man to teach her and ensure that she follows after God first and foremost.

"Wives submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also should wives submit to their husbands in everything." Ephesians 5:22-24 (NIV)
 
"However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband." Ephesians 5:33 (NIV)

Esther chapter 1 speaks of Queen Vashti, the wife of Xerxes, king of Persia. In these times, men and women did not always celebrate together and the king has thrown a massive celebration. For 180 days he has displayed the wealth and splendor of his kingdom and now the time has come for his royal banquet, and the queen also threw herself a banquet for the women in the royal palace. The king high in spirits decides that he wishes to show off his pride and joy, his beautiful wife and queen. He orders for her to come in all her royal splendor, but she who had her own agenda, refused to come. She did not want to leave her fun for even five minutes to do what her husband had asked. Had what he requested been so terrible? No, of course not, he just wanted her to turn up so that people could admire her beauty, what a hard life.

This caused such a problem for the king: if his own wife would not do as he said, his whole kingdom could fall apart, and his wife knew it. She knew that at her manipulation everything could change, perhaps she even thought that she might become the supreme ruler. Anyway she decided that she did not want to do what her husband asked anymore, which was most likely not a lot with the amount of servants she had, she probably didn't even dress herself. But she had had enough; it seems to me as though she thought she was going to start a revolution. The king immediately sought counsel and put a stop to it, he decreed that all men from the greatest to the least were deserving of the respect of their wives and women in general for that fact. Her refusal to come to the party cost her the position of queen, she was thrown out.

What is a man without the respect of his wife, and what is a woman without the love of her husband? We no longer desire to take care of our families and take pride in knowing that our house looks good because we made it look that way.

"Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in slave labor." Proverbs 12:24 (NIV)

If you are capable of taking good care of your home, you are able to relax and enjoy it, but if you are lazy, of course your husband is going to be on your back about it, forcing you to do what needs to be done. Now if you both work, you will share the load and go the extra mile when you know your partner has had a long rough day, but if you are home all day long, it is 100% fair to say that your husband will expect his home to be clean and vice versa. In my personal opinion there is no such thing as women's work when it comes to dealing with the home.

"The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down." Proverbs 14:1 (NIV)

If you are wise, you will take the time to ensure all that needs doing will get done, that you are the help meet for your husband that God intended you to be, that your children are brought up in the ways of the Lord, that your salvation is secure and your spiritual life in order. A foolish woman goes after her own gain, for her own satisfaction, making sure that she is happy and that anyone else can take a number and get in line.

There is no longer any difference between a man and a woman, because women seem to think that if a man can do it a woman can too, even down to the way we dress. The Lord warned us about the dissemination of the sexes and in Deuteronomy 22:5 we see that, no, cross dressing is not acceptable, neither is a woman who cuts her hair and dresses so much like a man that it is easier to mistake her for a man than a woman, and the same goes for men.

"A woman must not wear men's clothing, nor a man wear women's clothing, for the LORD  your God detests anyone who does this." Deuteronomy 22:5 (NIV)

You are what he made you, there was no mistake. God does not make mistakes; he cannot. There are no accidental births: you are here because God willed you to be here, he planned you before the world began. When you change yourself into anything except what and who God made you to be, you call God a liar and hurt Him more than you will ever know. You are His child, His perfect creation, yet when you do this you choose to be the clay that tells the potter how it wishes to be formed.

The state of sexual perversion amongst woman will continue to worsen until the very end, till the judgment falls; everything done and said is out of a prideful motive, the sex drive, the sex appeal, to be a sex icon.

The insane lengths you will go to, to alter your body's shape, by starving yourselves, binging and vomiting, to alter your height, the way you dress, even where you live and what you drive. The Lord not only commands but also encourages us to consider others more important than ourselves and to submit ourselves unto each other.

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others." Philippians 2:3-4 (NIV)
 
"Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ." Ephesians 5:21 (NIV)

He has us do these things so that pride cannot get a foothold and because it is selfless and just, as he is. He gave his Son, what have you given? Do you realize that there are well over 6 billion people in the world today, when you are told to consider others more important or better than yourself? That He means every single one of us, not just the small circle of people you associate with? Did you know and understand that, do you do that with a joyful heart, and that to submit is to love them and do everything out of love? He only says you have to love your neighbor, and you just found out how many you have. He doesn't say you have to like them, which means even if they are the biggest thorn in your side, you will still drop everything to meet their need and come to their aide if the Lord asks you to. We do not need to hate the evil people of this earth, we are commanded to love. The two don't mix, we are to forgive and forget. We don't need to keep score of rights or wrongs, God has that covered. It is our responsibility to see to it that these evil doers (child molesters) are put where they can not harm and destroy any more lives, but if we can't stand up and believe that others, especially small defenseless children, are worth the risk of ourselves being put through hardship or jail and that our number one supporter, God will back us up as His word says, what good are we? We are the fig tree that bore no fruit in season, we will be up rooted and thrown in the fire.

It never has been, nor will it ever be safe to allow an unproven woman to speak in a gathering of believers unless she is such a woman as this: a woman who has come through much travailing in the flesh and in the Spirit to break herself free of the generational bondage passed down from Eve and has brought herself into accordance with what God in His word has instructed her to become. Anyone who has not done so can cause many to fall away with her seductive and convincing speeches that are not spiritually mature.

"For God is not a God of disorder but a God of peace. As in all the congregations of the saints, women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission as the Law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church." 1 Corinthians 14:33-35 (NIV)

This also was not meant to be insulting, it was a caution, so that others are not misguided by a badly worded question. God will always give you someone with wisdom, an elder or your husband to explain the things of God to you if you do not understand. Women as a whole get really put out by this scripture purely because it denies them their pride, of being the center of attention, having everyone hang on their every word and getting carried away. Women were not called to lead in the things of God for this reason, we are swayed by the emotional. A man can more easily present the facts and still be in control of his emotions. If the power of God comes down on a woman, she is usually so struck with awe by the power that she is filled with tears, tears of joy or of conviction or healing, whatever the case maybe. I think when God took woman from man, He gave us their emotions and them our logic; women are not dumb creatures, we just follow our hearts not our heads. God set it all up in such a way that those who really need to hear the word of God explained can get it without too much deviation, a man can do it and a woman can't. Women can share what the Lord has shown them and what they have learned through the study of God's word, as I am doing now. But the responsibility of teaching a great many people the things of God over a long period of time was not on the list God gave us, that is all there is to it. Accept it and leave it at that; be thankful you are not the one who has to present that group of people to God on judgment day, for it will be a sorrowful time for many, as many have hardened their hearts and will not respond, they will just go through the motions.

The thing that has became more and more prevalent is that women don't want to be tied down and they don't want to be holy, they have no desire for real love or the role of a true wife, mother and woman of virtue as the bible teaches us we should be.

"Wives, in the same way be submissive [loving -Skye] to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self , the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful. They where submissive to their own husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear." 1 Peter 3:1-6 (NIV)
 
"I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate women who profess to worship God. A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. Adam was not the one who was deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. But women will be saved through childbearing-- if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety." 1 Timothy 2:9-15 (NIV)

You do not have to fear: your husband who loves you is not going to deny you all pleasure in life, unless what you are asking is unreasonable or badly timed. He loves you and he wants to see you happy, but your happiness should be the be all and end all of things. It is hard at first, to break yourself out of the bonds the world has put upon you and submit in a Godly fashion unto your husband, and it takes work, because every little thing tells you that you are being put in a box, herded like a sheep. But when you push past the lies and last ditch attempts from the enemy to stop you from getting yourself in a position where God can use you, when you are on the other side and there aren't so many bumps in the road, it is actually really quite enjoyable. Make sure you take the time to read that last part, especially those of you who have had children. Childbearing is not a 'get out of jail free card.' There is an 'if' attached, that you must continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety, basically all that I have pointed out to you in this article and my other article on the wife of noble character from Proverbs 31.

We are in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. All you have to do is seek God, wait on him for as long as it takes for you to get a hold of him, have him unveil your eyes to the true evil that is out there, not just the garden variety evil that makes it on the news channels, but the sordid evil that is being weighed and measured by the truck load. This whole world is a decaying carcass, and we sit in the front doorstep of hell, yet we don't see it. We have been handed standard government issue rose colored glasses, and we took them without question or complaint.

All sin that is committed leads back to one thing, sex, the child of pride, the devil's favorite tool. It gets everyone, almost every single time, unless you are incredibly conscious of your humble standings and continue to strive to put others first, with love.

Let me give you an example, lets say you steal a shirt, or a watch, or some jewelry. Everyone you show likes it and thinks your cool, daring and adventurous for stealing. Lets do the math:

STEALING- Why not, you deserve it = PRIDE

SEX APPEAL- It makes you look good to those around you which in turn feeds your = PRIDE

LUST- Causing others to lust after you or be jealous, which feeds your = PRIDE

WHERE DID IT START?

It started in the garden at the base of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

WHAT IS IT?

Sex, it is self-serving and satisfying. Everyone now has their personal best interests at heart and they are unwilling to put what they want aside to help meet the needs of others, just incase they miss out on what they want to do.

WHY DOES IT CONTINUE TO THIS DAY?

It continues to this day because God has given those of us over to the sinful desires of hearts that will not obey His word and accept His first and most important judgment handed down.

"Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood." Revelation 22:15 (NIV)

There is nothing left but the coming of the Lord from heaven. With a shout He will return, a shout of power, glory and anger. The cup of His wrath is filled to overflowing, it will be poured out on this earth until it is no more. Be sure you are in the Father's hands being lead home, not left behind. Break free of your bonds into what He has planned for you. Do not accept what the devil has dished up, it comes at a costly price and he is collecting his tab while he still has time; he will devour you if you do not fight.

To arms, ladies. Now is the time to lay down your pride, confess and repent of all the sexual wickedness you have been involved in, put on the armor of God and stand firm. It will not be long now.
