PRIDE: the Root of All Sexual Sin

🎯 Pride is the Root of All Sexual sin.

“Why do I deserve to sin against God?”

“Why do I deserve to sin against my own body?”

“Why do I deserve to sin against someone else’s body and spirit and soul?”

“Why do I deserve to sin against the next generation of children?”

It takes an EXTREME amount of pride to answer those 4 questions and still choose to please yourself selfishly!

1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth AGAINST HIS OWN BODY.
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN?
20 For YOU ARE BOUGHT WITH A PRICE: therefore glorify God in YOUR BODY, and in YOUR SPIRIT, WHICH ARE GOD’S.

“The MOST POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST SEXUAL IMPURITY is HUMILITY. Patterns of sinful thought and behavior are fruits of a deeper root. If we want to stop bearing bad fruit, we must aim our primary attack against the root. And the root of sexual sin is not our sex drive; it’s pride.” – John Bloom

“So just as GLUTTONY or ANOREXIA IS PRIDE infecting and manipulating the self’s orientation toward food, or GREED IS PRIDE infecting and manipulating the self’s orientation toward money, SEXUAL IMMORALITY and PERVERSIONS ARE PRIDE infecting and manipulating the self’s orientation toward sex. SEXUAL SIN IS UNHINGED HUMAN PRIDE rejecting the Creator in order to SEXUALLY CONSUME OTHERS FOR the benefit of the SELF.” – John Bloom

Pride Keeps you Away from Humility

Pride is the iniquity that keeps you away from the godly disciple makers, elders, or pastors that God is telling you to follow, learn from, and submit yourself to.

Pride is the iniquity that keeps you following after coolness, selfishness, vanity, entertainment, relevance, and useless puff-up head knowledge.

But God is not mocked… you will reap EXACTLY and ONLY what you sow into. Listen to He that speaks from Heaven!

John 3:27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be GIVEN HIM FROM HEAVEN.

One of the most popular forms of iniquity is pride. This is because it can disguise itself as two very popular things: “Coolness” for men & “Vanity” for women.

Don’t be fooled: these are forms of iniquity! Iniquities are Satans tools that he uses to open the doors of your heart for full blown sins and transgressions against the Laws of YAH.

Choose Obedience and Order over coolness, vanity, hipness, independence, haughtiness, or any other forms of pride. It could save your life!

YAHSHUA’S KINGDOM is NOT the NBA OR your MBA

The KINGDOM of JESUS is NOT a Sports League or a Research University.

For success, you must be better at REPENTING & SUBMITTING than DEBATING & COMPETING.

Secret Repentance is for Fakes and Hypocrites

Secret Repentance is NOT Repentance at all. It’s PRIDE. It’s a technique of Fakes and Hypocrites.

In the worst cases, Fake Repentance is a Tool that Deceivers (Warlocks) use to keep their hearts hard and their (idol) brands strong.
If you did wrong publicly – confess publicly, and bring forth the opposite fruit publicly.

If you taught wrong publicly-  confess publicly, and bring forth the opposite fruit publicly.

2 Corinthians 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

11 For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what CLEARING OF YOURSELVES, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what ZEAL, yea, what REVENGE! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

Pride can a Turn a Teacher into a Warlock

Pride makes you reject the very person that God sent to help you, while you embrace the rebellion that keeps you in bondage.

Pride causes us to embrace the research and knowledge that puffs our head up while we reject the wisdom, counsel, and fear that keeps us lowly and balanced.

Humility and laying down your life is the first requirement of a disciple. If you cannot do that then are you really a disciple, let alone a Teacher?

Any man who defends himself from the simple truths of Scripture just to protect his other “alternative” interests is not a true Teacher but a Warlock, aka a Deceiver. #humilityismandatory

Traits of Satanic Pride

Men who are full of satanic pride always have at least one of these traits. They: 
– cannot endure correction

– love to have preeminence 

– (they can’t be a part of anything unless they are at the top)

– are contentious 

– are self-inflated and narcissistic

– are above humble work 

– (too smart, too talented, too anointed, too visionary to do simple work)

– are a law unto themselves (lawless)

– love themSELVES, love PLEASURE, or love their CULTURE more than they love God
Don’t be that guy! Don’t be ANY of these guys!

instead of pride try obedience to market yourself

Its hard to mix pride with obedience. We are unprofitable servants just doing our duty.
 
Luke 17:10
So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
 
If you are in ministry, that is your marketing message: “We are unprofitable servants doing our duty.”
