How to Dominate Sexual Immorality and Live in Holiness (The Top Fourteen Ways)

 


Loved one in Christ Jesus, I believe you are growing in the strength of the Lord. I have observed that many Christians struggle with sexual immorality because they lack knowledge in that field. Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Ephesus that no Christian believer should be found guilty of sexual sin.

 

…fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

Ephesians 5:3 KJV

If Apostle Paul wrote that fornication (adultery, harlotry, homosexuality, lesbianism, incest, bestiality) must not be found among Christian believers, why do we find this evil among the church?

 

For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:

That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

1 Thessalonians 4:3-4 KJV

Paul further wrote to the church in Thessalonica that Christian believers must pursue holiness, purity, righteousness, sanctification, and abstain from fornication because it is God's will. Child of God, fornication does great harm to your spirit and soul.

It is one of the greatest weapons the enemy uses against Christian believers. From my research and revelations from the Holy Spirit, fornication is one of the aggressive weapons the enemy uses to break the spiritual life of Christian believers.

I am tempted daily, but I overcome with God's grace, vigilance, prayer, and knowledge. I have written many books and articles on this subject to help the church walk in victory, but it looks like many Christian believers are ignorant of the dangers.

How can Apostle Paul write in a strong language "God forbid" concerning fornication (See 1 Corinthians 6:15)? Some Christians argue that fornication is not the only sin ministers of the gospel should preach about, but the truth is, fornication is a great evil in the sight of God (See Ezekiel chapter sixteen in the Holy Scriptures).

Sin is in levels according to Christ Jesus (See John 19:10-11). Fornication opens the door for other evil to access a man. Monitor any man or woman who swims in fornication; such a person can commit any grievous sin with no sense of regret.

Under the old covenant, some culprits of sexual immorality were stoned or burnt to death (See Leviticus 20:10-12, Leviticus 21:9). If God demanded the death of illicit sexual immoral people, then it means it was abominable in His sight.

Some people think ministers of the gospel are the only ones to keep their garments pure from sexual defilement. They forget that ministers of the gospel are human beings with feelings like any other human being.

Don't think ministers of the gospels are the only ones to keep their garment pure from sexual defilement. Apostle Paul did not write that Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and teachers are the only ones to abstain from sexual immorality.

Paul wrote to the Christian believers in Ephesus, Corinth, and Thessalonica to abstain from sexual sin, so do not accuse a minister of the gospel when he falls into the trap of sexual immorality.

It is a standard for Christian believers. I am not condoning ministers of the gospels who are into the business of fornication.  Every minister of the gospel must know how to keep his garment spotless.

Although there are many invisible and deadly sins such as pride, ungodly anger, jealousy, unforgiveness, discontentment, and the ones you have hidden in your heart, God hates.

God is more concerned with this deadly sin that harms the soul of man and leads him to his early grave. It is your responsibility to ask the Holy Spirit in prayers to search your heart and transform you into His glory.

By God’s grace, sexual purity is helping me in my spiritual life. I want to share with you some strategies that work for me. The principles work because it is biblical, tried and tested. If you follow them, the Holy Spirit will reveal more of Himself to you.

I have written them in shorter points so you can understand and apply them in your life. Kindly share this article if you find it helpful.

 

1. Repentance

…if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV

Total deliverance emanates from Jesus the Christ. If you want God to set you free from sexual bondage (fornication), acknowledge that it is evil according to the Word (Holy Scriptures). God created sex for married couples, and its primary purpose is procreation and intimacy.

Sexual activity outside the chambers of marriage is evil. Admitting that fornication is sinful opens the door for Christ Jesus (Holy Spirit) to work on your heart. No one can save you except Christ Jesus.

Christ Jesus is the only one to set you free from every bondage (includes sexual sin). If you want the Holy Spirit to deliver you, pray the prayer of salvation and follow the instructions for a turnaround.


PRAYER OF SALVATION (CONFESS THIS PRAYER WITH ALL YOUR HEART)

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ, please forgive me of all my sin and wash me by the blood of Jesus Christ, I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and personal Saviour. I will follow and love you with all my heart.

Amen.


FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS AFTER THE PRAYERS

1. Delete and format anything that will limit you from the presence of God.

2. Download a Holy Bible on all your electronic devices (King James Version recommended).

3. Buy a hard copy of a Holy Bible (King James Version recommended).

4. Find a church that believes and follows the Holy Bible as their source of final authority and as their reference of doctrine and get baptized in water and with the Holy Spirit.

5. Build a consistent prayer life on your own.

6. Fellowship with the Holy Spirit through the word of God and anointed spiritual songs (worship, praises, and hymnals).

7. Evangelize in your community.

 

2. Develop a consistent relationship and fellowship with the Holy Spirit.

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Romans 8:26-27 KJV

When Christ Jesus comes into your life, He builds a home in your heart. Before your heart becomes a solid resident for the Holy Spirit, you must build a consistent relationship with Him. Your heart is the foundation of your spiritual life.

If you don't build a strong relationship with the Holy Spirit, you will struggle to walk in the kingdom's righteousness. The Holy Spirit is the third personality of the Godhead. He is your helper. He knows the ways of God’s kingdom.

When you build a strong relationship with the Holy Spirit, He will mould your heart and teach you the systems of God’s kingdom. You can create a relationship with the Holy Spirit through Word meditation, biblical and anointed Christian songs.

When you dedicate your life to the Holy Spirit, the desires of your flesh and soul will surrender to the leadership of the Kingdom. Sin (includes sexual immorality) will distance itself from you when it sees that you have build a strong relationship with the Holy Spirit.

 

3. Have time for God's Word.

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

1 Peter 2:2 KJV

God’s Word (Holy Scriptures) has the power to break every evil (includes lust and sexual immorality) in our hearts. When you feed on God’s Word, it transforms your mindset. When the Word of God enters your soul and spirit, it deletes and formats anything that opposes the wisdom of God and invests the thoughts of the King (Jesus the Christ) to enable you to behave like the King.

Like an electronic computer infected by a virus, when you install the latest antivirus on the computer, the antivirus quarantines and delete the virus corrupting your files; that is how God's Word works in our spirit and soul. The Word of God is like an antivirus that clears every virus (evil philosophy) in the system (human spirit and soul).

 

4. Choose wise and godly friends.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an in_del?

And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 KJV

The people you associate with have a significant impact on your life because their words affect your soul (Meditate on Proverbs 18:21). If you want to maintain a life of purity, connect with people that have a reverence for God.

Some people carry the presence of the Holy Spirit. Walking with god-fearing vessels will produce a positive impact on your life. You must not allow everybody to come into your inner chambers. Accept some people in life as acquaintances and walk closely with people that reverence the Lord.

 

5. Consistently watch godly videos.

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

Proverbs 4:7 KJV

Our body, spirit, and soul have gates.  Our eyes and ears are some of the entry points of spiritual beings. When you watch videos that glorify Christ Jesus, it bolsters the strength of your spirit. Godly videos protect your eye and ear gates from the influence of evil spirits. Meditate on this Holy Scripture for more profound revelation.

All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

1 Corinthians 10:23 KJV

 

6. Listen to godly music.

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

Proverbs 4:7 KJV

The words in music affect your soul. As I wrote in point five that our ears are some entry points of spiritual beings. When you listen to a song, you open your heart to the spirit that inspired the singer.

If the Holy Spirit inspired the singer, the same Spirit would inspire you. When the Holy Spirit inspires you through sacred music, you will not struggle to dominate any besetting sin in your Christian life.

Have you realized that anytime you listen to a particular singer (maybe Don Meon, West life, Esther Smith, Céline Dion, or your favourite musician), your atmosphere changes? The spirit behind the music is affecting you in the soul and spirit.

If it is an evil spirit, it will affect your life negatively. If it is a good spirit, it will affect your life positively. Meditate on this Holy Scripture for more profound revelation.

All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

1 Corinthians 10:23 KJV

 

7. Read godly books.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Hosea 4:6 KJV

Ignorance is one of the invisible weapons of the devil. If you don’t want to perish in life, acquire knowledge. You can read my article, The Mysteries and Principles of Total Deliverance, for more profound revelations.

Many people engage in grievous sin because they are ignorant of the dangers. Knowing the risks of sin (including sexual immorality) will make you think twice when tempted. One of the ways to acquire knowledge is to read and practice what you have learned.

I will list some physical dangers of sexual immorality. You can attract deadly diseases such as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), Human Immune Virus (HIV), Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), and Chlamydia. These are few diseases associated with sexual immorality. Are you ready to risk your life with these few dangerous diseases?

 

8. Build a consistent prayer life.

Pray without ceasing.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV

One important truth you must know about life is that before something happens in this world, it manifests in the spiritual realm as evidence so you can do something about it. If you doubt the existence of the spiritual realm, analyze your dream life.

When you slept, you saw yourself in another world whiles your body lay on the bed. That world is a picture of the spiritual world. If you are a spiritual person, you would understand this point. Child of God, it takes a consistent prayer life to dominate the activities of the spiritual realm.

When you build a consistent prayer life, God shelters you under His indestructible umbrella. In the season of temptation, God makes way for you to escape because you stood on your ground and prayed consistently.

Building a consistent prayer life builds your spiritual muscles. It takes heartfelt prayer to avert the deceptive schemes of the enemy. A prayerful Christian will not find it challenging to walk in dominion. Meditate on this Holy Scripture for more profound revelation.

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Matthew 26:41 KJV

 

9. Make a covenant with your eyes not to lustfully watch the opposite gender twice or thrice.

I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?

Job 31:1 KJV

When you keep watching the opposite gender with lustful eyes, you create a sexual connection with the person. Some people carry evil eyes, so be mindful of the eye gate. David, the king of Israel, fell into sexual sin with Uriah's wife (Bathsheba) because he couldn’t keep his eye gate.

In the book of Job, King Solomon records that Job was a righteous man, and he made a covenant not to look at a virgin lustfully. Job knew his eye could lead to sin, so he made an oath not to watch women wrongly.

Child of God, applying this divine principle will save you from numerous temptations.  A Christian friend I admired a lot said to me, he sees women as trees, but I choose to see women as my sisters and mothers.

Once you see the opposite sex as a family, your mind will not influence you to engage in sin. The devil can suggest to your mind. He cannot force you to accept his suggestions. Avoid the second look if you love Christ Jesus.

 

10. Avoid Wicked and Unrepentant sinners.

Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners

1 Corinthians 15:33 KJV

Apostle Paul writes that evil communication corrupts good manners. Some people carry evil spirits. Associating with such people will affect your life. Some people carry curses. The moment you connect with them, the curses operating in their lives affects you if you are not strong in the Lord.

Have you realized that anytime you walk with some particular friends, you enjoy the pleasures of sin? It is because sin has dominated the group. Save yourself from destruction because unrepentant and corrupt people will influence you to do evil.

 

11. Avoid creating a temptation arena.

Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?

Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?

Proverbs 6:27-28 KJV

If you don’t want a fire outbreak, create a distance between fire and gasoline. If you are dating, avoid meeting the opposite gender in a secluded or an enclosed area because you can be tempted to sin.

It doesn’t matter how godly and anointed you are; you are a human being with emotions and desires. Joseph fled for his life because he knew the consequence. When the opposite gender calls for a visit, agree to meet in an open arena where people can easily see both of you.

 

12. Dress in modesty.

In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

1 Timothy 2:9 KJV

One important reason people engage in sexual sin is seductive dressing. If you are a girl, lady, woman, or wife and observe that people always draw closer to you demanding sex, analyze your attire. Avoid ungodly fashion, and you will experience sanctimonious life.

 

 

13. Seek counselling from anointed and godly People

Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

Proverbs 11:14 KJV

Seeking help from a trusted person can be of great help if you are ready to share your struggles. Some people are always prepared to help you come out from your bondage. Humble yourself and seek help from a trusted leader, minister of God, and anyone the Holy Spirit leads you to because the Holy Spirit delivers people through anointed vessels. After deliverance, you may need intensive counselling and psychotherapy.

 

14. Avoid seductive and porn materials.

Abstain from all appearance of evil.

1 Thessalonians 5:22 KJV

Pornographic videos open the portal for the spirit of lust to dominate you. If you are the type that loves reading erotic books, you will become a slave to sexual immorality. The more you watch porn videos, romantic videos and read erotic materials, you will be tempted to masturbate.

When you become a slave to masturbation, you will be tempted to practice fornication. Child of God, if you want to be free from this invisible bondage, repent from this habit and practice any of the divine principles I gave you. The Holy Spirit will help you if you take responsibility.
