DOMINION OVER DARKNESS (PART XI) DEALING WITH THE SPIRIT OF PERVERSION

There is nothing that has not been perverted. Every perversion is a product of misplaced value. If you value things down here more than you value the word of God, you will be earthbound. Love has been so perverted that many people don’t even know the definition of love. When you pervert love, you will produce lust. Sex has been perverted. Human beings now do what even animals cannot do. Have you ever seen a male dog mating with a male dog? That is what human beings are doing. Perversion has gone so bad to the extent that bishops can gather to debate whether a gay can be ordained a bishop. These are people who profess the Bible. When a human being allows himself to go into perversion, he becomes a human beast; I have seen this severally in the place of deliverance. Man has degenerated further to the point of mating with animals and materials, which they call sex toys. How does it start? One little error in the garden of the mind. When the devil bombards the mind of man, his will becomes distorted and everything he does becomes distorted as well. This is because your will is your deciding self while your mind is your thinking self.

Your mind or heart (it is used interchangeably) is the greatest battlefield; that is the reason why you must guard it with all diligence. It can get so bad that every signal that your mind is sending to your will turns out to be distorted signals. Consequently, your decisions will be distorted.

Some people defend this abomination by saying that they were created that way. This is a lie. When God created man, the Bible says “male and female created he them” and after creation, he saw that everything was good. Where does this distortion start? In the garden of the heart. The battle of the garden of the heart is a battle you must win. Worship has been perverted, praise has been perverted, prayer has been perverted, drugs have been perverted, food has been perverted; many people want to live long but they keep eating things that can kill them. Education has been perverted; parents send their children to schools today without knowing the spiritual content of what their children are going to receive. The spiritual environment of a school is very important. Good minus God is equals to zero, but God plus zero is equal to good. The spirit of “let us alone” is the spirit of self-destruction. Education must be God centred for it to be meaningful.

Rom. 1:20-28 “Since earliest times men have seen the earth and sky and all God made, and have known his existence and great eternal power. So they will have no excuse (when they stand before God at Judgment Day). Yes, they know about him all right, but they wouldn’t admit it or worship him or even thank him for all his daily care. And after awhile they began to think up silly ideas of what God was like and what he wanted them to do. The result was that their foolish minds became dark and confused. Claiming themselves to be wise without God, they became utter fools instead. And then, instead of worshipping the glorious, ever-living God, they took wood and stone and made idols for themselves, carving them to look like mere birds and animals and snakes and puny men. So God let them go ahead into every sort of sex sin, and do whatever they wanted to – yes, vile and sinful things with each other’s bodies. Instead of believing what they knew was the truth about God, they deliberately chose to believe lies. So they prayed to the things God made, but wouldn’t obey the blessed God who made these things. That is why God let go of them and let them do all these evil things, so that even their women turned against God’s natural plan for them and indulged in sex sin with each other. And the men, instead of having a normal sex relationship with women, burned with lust for each other, men doing shameful things with other men and, as a result, getting paid within their own souls with the penalty they so richly deserved. So it was that when they gave God up and would not even acknowledge him, God gave them up to doing everything their evil minds could think of”. (TLB). The world is confused and why? The world decided to throw God away from their equation and as such, God gave them up to their evil desires. Every pervert will end up in hell. Rev. 21:8 says “But cowards who turn back from following me, and those who are unfaithful to me, and the corrupt, and murderers, and the immoral, and those conversing with demons, and idol worshippers and all liars – their doom is in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur. This is the second death”. (TLB). This will not be our portion because God has something better for us.
