From: @stands to reason Many Here are Not STOPPING Porn, Masturbation, and Orgasms (PMO) Even if you pause PMO temporarily from a long streak using human willpower, this has absolutely nothing to do with transforming the mind, or saving the soul from eternal spiritual death from sin. The saving of the soul is called regeneration. God comes and lives within you and you will not desire to sin anymore. He will help you overcome, as he did for me. The following is why many remain trapped in PMO. #1 BE OF GOD Do you know God? You think you know him? Do you profess you know him? Are you good ground? Or are you deceived and really a deceptive tare? We don't know how many tares are among us. Jesus said, you will know them by their fruit. But do you really think you are living for God when you are living in PMO sin? Do you abide in God? Matthew 15:8 KJV - This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. How do you know you have God inside you? 1 John 4:1-2 - Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: How do you know you love God? John 14:21 - He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. Matthew 24:13 - But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. A question I ask for those who still struggle to walk with God: How would you react if you could see Jesus in the room with you while performing any of PMO? I know what I would do --What is your answer? #2 FEAR GOD (reverent awe) Do you fear God and hate sin? 8:13 - The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Until you hate sin you will remain arrogant against God and held in place to PMO. You cannot have reverent awe of God when you have no respect of sin. Do not be deceived, sin is enmity against God and without repentance, sin will kill you. #3 GET WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING You lack wisdom Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Proverbs 4:7 #4 BECOME A HEARER OF THE WORD Are you hearing God’s voice? otherwise you would follow him --wouldn't you? James 1:19 - let every man be swift to hear… Matthew 11:15 - He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. Romans 10:17 - So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. #5 BELIEVE GOD’S WORD Are you believing on God? Take heed, there is an eternal difference in believing in Jesus and believing on Jesus. Believing on God means you have complete unwavering steadfast trust on what God says his will is. You trust always and do not doubt. The Bible says that by walking in the Spirit we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. ... Paul writes in Galatians 5:16, “I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. To commit sin is to transgress or disobey these laws. John 15:7 - If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. James 1:6-8 - But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. #6 BECOME A DOER OF THE WORD Are you doing what the Word says? James 1:22 - But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. Last edited: Jul 30, 2019 WARNING! Do not be deceived When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart.
