Open Heaven 2 October 2019 Wednesday – REDUCED TO A PIECE OF BREAD
Open Heaven 2 October 2019 Memorise: Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 1st Corinthians 6:18
Read: Proverbs 6:20-26 Open Heaven 2 October 2019
20 My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
21 Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.
22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.
23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.
25 Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
26 For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adultress will hunt for the precious life.

One of the deadliest sins is sexual immorality of any kind, the reason being that the repercussion do not wait until the great white Throne judgment before stinging their victim (Revelation 20:11-12). The consequences include broken relationships, destroyed families, sexually transmitted diseases and much more. This is the reason why the Holy Spirit is warning us in today’s memory verse to flee from it. Sexual immorality carries a lot of evil baggage, the most grievous of which is spiritual in nature. For example, Reuben slept with his father’s wife and got an everlasting curse for it (Genesis 35:22, Genesis 49:1-4).
Another example is Samson. Once a Nazarite consecrated to God, he lost his glory after following himself to fornicate with an idol-worshipper who betrayed him. His two eyes were removed and he became a grinder of corn and an object of scorn in the temple of Dagon, the god of the Philistines. (Judges 16:19-23). The word of God is the sure refuge against the destructive sin of sexual immorality. Speaking in today’s Bible reading, the Holy Spirit shows us the way of escape we need, saying in Proverb 6:23-24:
“For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strong woman.”

God’s word has power to shield us from falling prey to the seductive instincts of evil men and women. Only the wise who walk in the fear of God like Joseph did can escape this if the word of God is hidden in our hearts (Psalms 119:11). Speaking particularly, God’s word has forever established that extramarital wandering is forbidden. The Almighty God, who knows the end from the beginning, knows what will be the end of that sexual escapade, and He forbids it. He says in Proverbs 6:25-26:
“Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids. For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.”
God reveals in this scripture that sexual immorality hunts
for the very best of mankind to destroy their future. Indeed, when you look
through history, you will observe that sexual immorality has destroyed so many
precious souls and destinies.
Beloved, I plead with you not to allow this age-long enemy
of mankind to destroy you. If you are indulging in sexual immorality, repent,
and if you are being tempted to go into it, run for your dear life like Joseph
did. God bless you.
