Teaching Two

Sex Is Good

All Points

Point One– Point Two – Point Three – Pray

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sex Is Good

 

 

 

 

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Goal

 

Having Our God’s Understanding Concerning Sex

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

Name Of Our God

 

Our God Is A Life-Giving Spirit

 

So It Is Written

 

The First Man Adam Became A Living Being 

 

The Last Adam A Life-Giving Spirit

 

1 Corinthians 15:45

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

Point One

 

Our Sexuality

 

And

 

The Act Of Sex Is Good  

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

Sex Is More Than An Act Of Pleasure

 

It’s The Ability To Be Able To Feel So Close To A Person

 

So Connected 

 

So Comfortable

 

That It’s Almost Breathtaking

 

To The Point You Feel Overwhelmed

 

And

 

At This Moment You’re A Part Of Them

 

Author Unknown

 

 

*          *          *   

For This Reason

 

A Man Will Leave His Father And Mother

 

And

Be United To His Wife

 

And

The Two Will Become One Flesh

 

 

Matthew 19:5

 

 

 

God Saw All That He Had Made

 

And

It Was Very Good

Genesis 1:31

 

*          *          *   

 

We Know That According To Scripture

 

 

Single Guys Are To Be Totally Inexperienced On Their Wedding Night

 

 

Young Men Let Me Tell You Something

 

 

You Will Not Hear From Your Friends –

 

Nor In The Movies Nor Anyplace Else

 

When Most Guys For The First Time  

 

Go Into A Woman Sexually

 

Their Body Is

 

So Nervous – So Excited

 

Nine Times Out Of Ten They

 

Pop Right Away And I Mean Right Away

 

It Takes Time To Master Your Body

 

Controlling Your Climax

 

I Believe That The Vast Majority Of Young Guys

 

Who Get Young Girls Pregnant

 

Are Themselves Virgins

 

Spending Less Than A Minute In Her

 

The Best Words To Describe

 

The First Couple Of Sexual Encounters Are

 

Clumsy And Awkward

 

So Yes

 

Your Father God Wants You To Be

 

Inexperienced Until Your Wedding Night

 

You Will Not Be Naive

 

But Inexperienced

 

Yet Your Obedience To Him

 

Well Be Rewarded

 

With A Special Joy

 

For In Your First Act Of Intercourse With Your Wife

 

While You Are In Her

 

And You Look Into Her Eyes

 

You Will Understand

 

You Will Know

 

What Our Father God Means In Saying

 

The Two Will Become One

 

 

 

Now Ask Yourself A Question   

 

 

Is A Minute Or Even Less Worth Losing Your Virginity For

 

 

 

 

 

And For The Married Man

 

He Is To Keep His Body

 

Solely For His Wife

 

 

From The Message Bible

 

 

Your Spring Water Is For You And You Only

 

Not To Be Passed Around Among Strangers


 

Bless Your Fresh-Flowing Fountain 
   

 

Enjoy The Wife You Married As A Young Man


 

Lovely As An Angel

 

Beautiful As A Rose— 
   

 

Don’t Ever Quit Taking Delight In Her Body 
   

 

Never Take Her Love For Granted


 

Why Would You Trade Enduring Intimacies

 

For Cheap Thrills With A Whore 
  

 

 For Dalliance With A Promiscuous Stranger

 

Proverbs 5:17-20

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In The Last Point We Showed You A Few Men From Scripture

 

 

How Solomon Had No Less Than 1,000 Women

 

For Whatever He Desired

 

And Yet

 

He Wrote The

 

Song Of Solomon

 

For The One He Loved

 

*          *          *

 

Then There’s The Story Of Samson

 

And

How He Destroyed

 

His Life Playing Games With Delilah 

 

*          *          *

 

Plus

We Have Read The Story Of How King David Killed

 

Because

Of His Sexual Appetite

 

Yet

In Time He Became Known As

 

A Man After God’s Own Heart

 

*          *          *

 

In Each Of These Stories

 

We Can Analyze The Consequences For The Sexual Sins Of Each Man

 

But

It Is King David’s Story That

 

Offers Hope

 

Offers Redemption For All Of Us

 

*          *          *

 

 

Let’s Begin By Defining The Word Sex

 

 

Throughout This Seminar

 

We Could Focus On This Topic From 5 Different Themes

 

  1. We Are Sexual Beings

 

  1. We Have A Sex Drive

 

  1. Our Sexual Desire’s Preference’s

 

  1. Sexual Activity

 

  1. God‘s View Of This Topic

 

 

*          *          *

 

             1 – We Are Sexual Beings

 


    Then God Said

 

Let Us Make Mankind In Our Image In Our Likeness…

 

So God Created Mankind In His Own Image 
   

 

In The Image Of God He Created Them

 

Male And Female He Created Them.

 

 

Genesis 1:26-27

 

               Our God Created Us In His Image

 

 

 

If We Were To Make Two Lists

 

One With The Heading Masculine And The Other Feminine

 

Highlighting Our God’s Attributes And His Qualities

 

These Lists Would Be Quite Long

 

 And

Many Of His Attributes And His Qualities Would Cross Over

 

And

Would Be Rightly Seen In Both Columns

 

Therefore Both

 

The Male And Female Reflect The Image Of God

 

 

But We As Men Reflect His Masculine Qualities

 

Meaning

 

                                               We Typically But Again Not Exclusively

 

  • Are The Initiators

 

  • Are More Bold

 

  • More Aggressive

 

 

 

We Are More Muscular Than The Female

 

And With That Physically

 

We Carry The Seeds Of Life Within Us

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

And In God’s Eye’s

 

This Is What This Seminar Is All About

 

 

*          *          *         

 

We Say That Being A Sexual Being Is A Gift From God

 

And

When We Look At It Properly

 

When Using It Properly

Not As Some Kind Of Medication

 

As Guys With An Out Of Control Sex Drive Most Often Do

 

 

(I Will Give You Understanding Of What I Mean By This Later In This Seminar)

 

 

*          *          * 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Truth For My Brothers In Christ

 

Who Have A Homosexual Orientation

 

   In Psalms 139 The Psalmist Tells Us That

 

 

                       We Are Fearfully And Wonderfully Made  

 NIV

 

We Should Be Always Thankful To Our God

 

For The Wonderful Gift Of Our Sexuality

 

It Is Not The Center Of Who You Are

 

The True Reality Is If You Have Accepted Jesus

 

As Your Lord And Savior

 

He Is The Center Of Your Identity

 

Your Sexuality Is A Part Of Who You Are

 

So Is Your Soul And So Is Your Intellect

 

 

As A Christian Man

 

It Is Vital To Understand

 

That Your Past Does Not Dictate Who You Are

 

 

In Our Father God’s Eyes

 

You Are First And Foremost His Son

 

This Is Your True Identity

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2- We Have A Sex Drive

 

The Sexual Pressures Are Always Alive/Awake Within Us

 

  • Sometimes They Are Calm

 

  • Sometimes Mild And

 

  • Sometimes Very Intense

 

We Were Created Sexual Beings

 

We Were Wired This Way

 

Your Sex Drive Is Alive Within You

 

                24                         7                                 365

 

    Days A Year

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

Look At A Pressure Gauge

 

 

This Is What Your Sex Drive Is Like

 

The More You Are Focused On Any Lust

 

The More Intense Your Obsession With It Is

 

 

The More You Are

 

 

Satisfied – Fulfilled And Content

 

In Your Relationship With God First

 

Then The More You Are At Peace Within

 

 

The More You Are At Peace Within

 

The Easier It Is To Walk In The Fruit Of The Spirit    

 

Self-Control

 

 

 

 

 

Most Importantly

 

You Must Understand That Your Sex Drive Was Never Designed

 

To Be Used To Meet Your Heart Needs

More On Your Heart Needs Later

 

Question

 

 

Does Our Sex Drive Ever Go Away

 

 

Answer

 

No

 

And The Reality Is We Don’t Ever Want It To

 

 

Yet I Do Believe That

 

We Can Actually Put Our Sex Drive To Sleep

 

 

Meaning

 

You Can Get To A Place In Your Relationship

 

With Your Father God

 

That Yes You Would Be Aware Of Your Sex Drive

 

But

You Would Find Yourself So Content

 

In Your Closeness To Him

 

That Walking In Self Control

 

Is Done With Very Little Effort

 

 

It’s In The Song Of Solomon Where Three Times

 

Solomon Says

 

Don’t Awaken Love Before Its Time

NIV

 

Verse 2:7                   Verse 3:5                   Verse 8:4

 

 

Therefore

 

Will You Ever Have A Life Apart From Your Sex Drive                         No

 

But

 

Can You Put Your Sex Drive To Sleep                                                    Yes

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

3 – Our Sexual Desire’s

 

Our Orientation  – Our Preference’s

 

                                                   Whatever Your Orientation

 

                                                    Whatever You Focus On

 

                                                 Concerning Your Sexual Preference

 

However You Believe You Are Wired Internally

 

          Scripture Is Very Clear

 

       Whenever You Cross Over

 

          Into Any Kind Of Sexual Activity

 

       It Is At This Place That We See Our Father God Having A Lot To Say

 

 

Therefore

 

Whatever Your Orientation – Whatever Your Preference

 

 

Remember We Are All Called To Be Holy

 

 

But Just As He Who Called You Is Holy So Be Holy In All You Do

1 Peter 1:15

 

Our Father God Wants Each Of Us To Be Pure To Be Holy

To Be Clean Before Him In Thought – Word And Deed

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

4 – Sexual Activity

     

Our God Clearly Speaks To All Men

 

Concerning His Stand On Sexual Activity Of Any Kind

 

Meaning

 

The Body Is Not Meant For Sexual Immorality

 

But For The Lord

 

And The Lord For The Body

 

1 Corinthians 6:13

 

*          *          *

 

In The Old Testament Leviticus 18

 

I Call These The Un-Allowables

 

Do Not Is Mentioned 18 Times In This Chapter

 

And Covers Such Sins As

 

  • Adultery

 

  • Homosexuality

 

  • Incest 

 

  • Bestiality

Verse 24 Says

 

Do Not Defile Yourselves In Any Of These Ways

 

Because

This Is How The Nations

 

That I Am Going To Drive Out Before You Became Defiled

 

 

Sexual Sin

 

Can Be Committed Either Within The Context Of

 

Adultery – Being A Married Man

 

Or

 

Fornication -Being A Single Man

 

In The New Testament

 

Do You Not Know

 

That The Wicked Will Not Inherit The Kingdom Of God

 

Do Not Be Deceived

 

Neither The

  • Sexually Immoral

 

  • Idolaters (Teaching 6)      

 

  • Adulterers

 

  • Male Prostitutes

 

  • Homosexual Offenders…

 

             …Will Not Inherit The Kingdom Of God

 

1 Corinthians 6: 9-11

 

*          *         *

 

 

Flee From Sexual Immorality

 

All Other Sins A Man Commits

 

Are Outside His Body

 

But

He Who Sins Sexually Sins Against His Own Body

 

1 Corinthians 6:18

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Difference Between

 

 

Lust And Crossing Over Into Sexual Behavior

 

When We Lust In Our Heart This Is Like Watering

 

The Fruit Of The Holy Spirit Within Us With A Toxic Poison

 

 

When You Include Pornography To Feed Your Lust

 

 

Here We Cross An Invisible Line And In Crossing That Line

 

This Is Where Idolatry Can Come Into Play With Our Lives 

 

This Is Such An Important Issue There Are Two Teachings Dedicated To It Within This Seminar

 

 

When We Act Out Behaviorally

 

Going From Fantasizing Sexually To Performing That Fantasy With Another Person

 

The Consequences Are Different Than Lusting

 

 

The Consequences Can Be More Severe

 

  • More Brutal

 

  • More Difficult To Live With

 

  • More Dangerous

 

  • They Can Even Be Life Altering

 

An Unplanned Pregnancy  – STD’S / STI’s  –  Getting Arrested For A Sex Crime

 

Acting Out Behaviorally Is Increasingly Playing More Of A Role In The Break Up Of Marriages

 

This Is Just The Tip Of The Iceberg Concerning Crossing The Line On Into Sexual Behavior

 

Almost Weekly A Politician – An Athlete Or A Minister Is In The News

 

Because They Crossed That Line

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

 

 

5 – God‘s View Of This Topic

 

 

All Scripture Is God-Breathed And Is Useful For Teaching Rebuking Correcting

 

And

Training In Righteousness

 

2 Timothy 3:16

 

 

According To Scripture

 

 

The Only Place Were Our God Blesses Sexual Activity

 

Is Within The Marriage Covenant Between A Man And A Woman

 

This Point

Point Five

 

God’s View Of This Topic

 

This Is What This Entire Seminar Is All About

 

 

*          *          *         *   

 

             God Starts Talking About Sex At The Very Beginning Of The Bible

 

 

*          *          *          *

     

In Genesis 1 & 2

 

 

Speaking About Adam

 

The LORD God Said

It Is Not Good For The Man To Be Alone

 

I Will Make A Helper Suitable For Him

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It Is My Belief

 

 

That Adam As A Single Man

 

Was Satisfied – Fulfilled And Content In His Relationship With God

 

That Adam Was Living The Abundant Life That John 10:10 Speaks Of

 

Yet

God Knew That He Had Created Adam

 

A Sexual Being And He Knew That Adam Was Not Yet Complete

 

It Is God Who Saw And Addressed This Missing Part Of Adam’s Life

 

 

When Adam First Saw Eve

 

 

He Said

This Is Now Bone Of My Bones And Flesh Of My Flesh

 

She Shall Be Called Woman

 

For She Was Taken Out Of Man

 

Genesis 2:23

 

 

I Believe This To Be Adam’s Marriage Vows Before God

 

 

Because Following It Says

 

The Man & His Wife Were Both Naked

 

And

They Felt No Shame

 

Genesis 2:25

 

 

God Blessed Them And Said To Them

 

 

Be Fruitful And Increase In Number Fill The Earth

 

Genesis 1:28

 

It Was At This Point In Adam’s Life That His Sex Drive Was Awakened

 

 

And Here Our God Is Informing Us

 

Of The Only Place Were He Blesses Sexual Activity

 

And That Is Within The Marriage Covenant

 

Between

A Man And A Woman

 

 

This Is The Very First Statement

 

 

God Made To Adam And Eve

 

I Mean

 

THE VERY FIRST STATEMENT EVER

 

And It’s Not About

 

  • The Tree Of Good And Evil

 Nor

  • His Kingdom – The Kingdom Of God

     Nor

  • About Himself

 

He Told Adam And Eve To Go And Have Sex For The First Time Together

 

He Told Them To Go And Connect Sexually With One Another

 

It Was God Who Told Them To Go And Do It

 

Because

He Created Sex

 

And

When Done His Way

 

Sex Is Good

 

 

*          *          *

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Always Remember

 

Our Father Wants Us To Live Life Concerning Our Sexuality

 

Without

  • Guilt

 

Without

  • Fear

 

Without

  • Shame Or Condemnation

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

Jesus And Paul Are In Agreement With The Writer Of Genesis  (Moses)

 

Jesus’ Said

 

For This Reason

 

A Man Will Leave His Father And Mother

 

And

Be United To His Wife

 

And

The Two Will Become One Flesh

 

So They Are No Longer Two

But One…

 

Therefore

What God Has Joined Together

 

Let No One Separate

 

Mark 10: 7-9

 

*          *          *         *          *

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paul Said

 

For This Reason

 

A Man Will Leave His Father And Mother

 

And

Be United To His Wife

 

And

The Two Will Become One…

 

Ephesians 5:31

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

How Our God Views Sexual Intercourse

 

Do You Not Know That

 

He Who Unites Himself With A Prostitute

 

Is One With Her In Body

 

For It Is Said

 

The Two Will Become One…

 

1 Corinthians 6:16

 

 

The Take Away Here Is The Mystery Of The Two Becoming One

 

When They Are In The Act Of Sex

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

When We Have Sex

 

We’re Not Just Touching A Body

 

We’re Touching A Soul

 

 

Craig Barnes

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

Fact

 

You Don’t Have A Soul

 

You Are A Soul

 

You Have A Body

 

C.S. Lewis

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

The Way Our God Planned And Intended Sexual Intercourse

 

The Only Way He Blesses Sexual Activity

 

Is When A Man And A Woman Make A Covenant

 

With One Another Before Him

 

What Our Father God Intends Concerning Sexual Activity Is

 

This Activity Is To Be Interwoven In An Intimate Relationship

 

First The Covenant

 

Then It Is All About The Relationship

 

Then It Is The Act Of Sex

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Point One

 

Our Sexuality

 

And

The Act Of Sex Is Good

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

Pray

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

Goal

 

Having Our God’s Understanding Concerning Sex

 

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

Name Of Our God

 

 

Our God Is A Life-Giving Spirit

 

So It Is Written

 

The First Man Adam Became A Living Being 

 

The Last Adam A Life-Giving Spirit

Name Of Our God:

 

 

Holy & Awesome Is His Name

 

He Provided Redemption For His People

 

He Ordained His Covenant Forever—

 

Holy And Awesome Is His Name

Psalm 111:9

 

 

It Is Easy To Set The Words AwesomeAnd SexNext To Each Other

 

But

This Seminar Is Mainly About Setting The Words

HolyAnd Sex Next To Each Other

 

And

With That Having Our God’s Understanding Of This Topic

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

Point Two 

 

 

  1. Our Sex Drive Is Pleasurable

 

  1. And Powerful

 

  1. And In Our God’s Eyes It Is Sacred

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

  1. Our Sex Drive Is Pleasurable

 

God Made Sex Awesomely Pleasurable

 

From

The Richest Of The Rich To The Poorest Of The Poor

 

Almost All Men Throughout History

 

Have Turned To Sex For It’s Pleasure

 

From The Young

 

May Your Fountain Be Blessed

 

And

May You Rejoice

                                                            In The Wife Of Your Youth              

 

 Proverbs 5:18

 

*          *          *

And To The Old

 

Sarah Became Pregnant

 

And

Bore A Son To Abraham In His Old Age

 

At The Very Time God Had Promised Him

 

You Just Know That Abraham And Sarah

 

Were The Talk Of The Town

 

When Sarah Became Pregnant

 

And

You Know What They Were Saying

 

 

Genesis 21:2

 

                                                                      *         *          *

 

God Saw All That He Had Made

 

And

It Was Very Good

 

Genesis 1:31

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

  1. Also Sex Is Awesomely Powerful

 

If You Have Appreciated That Your Sex Drive Is A Gift From God

 

It Is Important For You To Understand And Realize

 

That It Is An Awesomely Powerful Gift

 

 

And If You Are 

 

 

 A Slave

To Your Sexual Appetite

 

Then Realize That Your Slave Master Is Also

 

Awesomely Powerful

 

*          *          *

 

 

But Remember 2 Samuel 22 And Psalm 18

 

David When Speaking OfGod

 

David Says

 

He Rescued Me From My Powerful Enemy

 

From

My Foes Who Were Too Strong For Me

 

Good News

 

The Power Of The Cross Is Always More Powerful Than Addiction Or Sin

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sexual Activity Is Like Nuclear Energy

 

Nuclear Energy Can Be Used For Good

 

Or

It Can Be Used To Destroy

 

For Good

 

It Can Contribute To Our Life As A Great Blessing To Us

 

As Long As It Is Properly Handled

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

God’s Intent Is For Sex To Be Properly Handled

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

He Wants It To Bless

 

 

                        For Intimacy

 

For Pleasure

 

                                                                 To Create

 

 

In Marriage               –           In Marriage               –           In Marriage

 

 

*          *         *

 

 

To Destroy

 

Later In This Seminar I Will Be Showing You How Promiscuity Destroys

 

 

  • The Person

 

  • The Family

 

  • The Nation

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Now Point Three Which Is The Most Important Point

 

And That Being In Our God’s Eyes

 

The Act Of Sex

 

 

It Is Sacred

 

It is Impart Because

 

As A Man You Carry The Seeds Of Life

 

And

It Is The Female Who Carries The Eggs Of Life

 

That Whenever A Man Enters A Woman

 

They Can Potentially Create A Life

 

Also

In Their Image

 

And

Their Likeness 

 

 

Also Our God Views The Act Of Sex Within Marriage As Sacred

 

Because

It Is The Closest Model We Have Concerning

 

Our Eternal Relationship With Him

 

It Is In The Act Of Sex Between A Man And A Woman

 

As I Said Earlier

 

The Two Become One

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Therefore

 

I Believe That When Experienced As Our God Intended The Act Of Sex

 

  • It Is Pleasurable

 

  • It Is Powerful

 

  • It Is Intimate

 

  • It Can Potentially Create A Life

 

  • It Is Holy And It Is Sacred

 

This Is Where I Am Taking Us With This Seminar

 

Always Towards Holiness

 

Always Towards Purity

 

To Have Our God’s

Understanding And Heart About Sexual Activity

 

Our Attitude And Mindset

 

Is To Be Like His

 

And

That Is

 

Sex Is Holy

 

And

It Is Sacred

Question

 

 

Can You Live A Full And Abundant Life Without Being Active Sexually

 

Answer

 

YES

 

Let Me Explain

 

Back In The 1940’s There Was A Researcher  – A Humanist

 

Who Presented An Overview Of Our Practical Needs

 

His Name Was Abraham Maslow

 

And His Work Is Known As Maslow’s

 

“Hierarchy Of Human Needs”

 

         In This Work He Says We Need Five Basic Things To Survive And

 

        They Are Our Core Needs?

 

 

He Says We Need

 

  • Air

 

  • Water

 

  • Food

 

  • Sleep

 

  • Sex

 

The Fact Is Jesus

 

Was Fully God And Fully Man While He Was Here On Earth

 

And

While Here He Lived His Life As A Normal Celibate Man

 

 

Also The Apostle Paul

 

Lived A Life As A Single Man

 

And

His Life Like Jesus’ Life Was One Of Abundance And Fulfillment

 

Meaning Yes They Needed

 

Air  – Water  – Food – Sleep

 

Yet No Where In Scripture

 

Did Jesus Or Paul Ever Engage In Any Kind Of Sexual Activity

 

 

Why/Because

 

Sex Is A Desire And Not A Need

 

Jesus And Paul Both Had All The Hormones That We Have

 

They Had All The Emotions That We Have

 

They Had All The Hungers And Longings That We Have

 

Yet They Lived A Life Of Purity And Holiness

 

And

 

A Life Without Any Sexual Activity

 

 

And We Read That Jesus Was Tempted As We Are Yet Never Sinned

 

 

For We Do Not Have A High Priest

 

Who Is Unable To Empathize With Our Weaknesses

 

But

We Have One Who Has Been Tempted In Every Way

 

Just As We Are—

 

Yet

He Did Not Sin

Hebrews 4:15

 

 

Yes

Air-Water-Food And Sleep

 

Our Are Practical Everyday Needs

 

But

We Can Live A Full And Abundant Life That John 10:10 Speaks Of

 

And

We Can Live It Apart From Being Sexually Involved With Someone

Remember

 

The Thief Comes Only To Steal And Kill And Destroy

 

I Have Come That They May Have Life, And Have It To The Full

 

Fact

 

Our Father God Knows Our Practical

 

And

Our Heart Needs

 

And

He Desires To Meet Them If We Let Him

 

 

Just What Are Our Hearts Needs

 

Affection

 

Affirmation

 

Acceptance

 

Approval

 

Validation

 

These Are The Hungers And Longings Of Our Deep Heart

 

We Will Highlight These 5 Needs Several Times Throughout This Seminar

 

 

Remember This Psalm

 

 

Let Them Give Thanks To The LORD For His Lovingkindness 


 

And

For His Wonders To The Sons Of Men

 

For He Has Satisfied The Thirsty Soul 


 

And

The Hungry Soul

 

He Has Filled With What Is Good.

 

Psalm 107:8-9

*          *          *          *          *

 

 

Nevertheless 

 

It Is A Battle For Young Single People To Remain Pure Today

 

And

Our God Is Totally Aware Of This Battle

 

 

Question

 

Why Do You Suppose

 

Our God Allows Us To Go Through This Battle

 

Answer

 

– To Learn Trust Towards Him

 

– To Learn To Be Interdependent Upon Him

 

  • On Your Wedding Night –

 

                                  To Give Your Marriage Partner Your Virginity As A Gift To Them

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

To Learn Trust Towards Our Triune God

 

When A Boy Enters Puberty

 

He Begins A Journey

 

A New Stage Of His Life

 

That If He Makes The Right Choices

 

Concerning His Relationship With His God

 

He Will Live A Life Of Honor

 

And

If He Makes The Wrong Choices

 

It Could End Up Being A Life Of Shame

 

And

The Only Way A Boy Can Have Mastery Over His Sex Drive

 

Is To Trust In His God

 

 

                  *          *          *          *          *

 

To Learn To Be Interdependent Upon Him

 

Our Father God

 

Wants A Close Father/Son Relationship With Each Of Us

 

Were We Learn To Be Interdependent

 

With Every Aspect Of Our Life

 

Including Our Sex Drive

 

 

 

For Those Who Are Led By The Spirit Of God Are The Children Of God

 

The Spirit You Received Does Not Make You Slaves So That You Live In Fear Again

 

Rather

The Spirit You Received Brought About Your Adoption To Sonship

 

And

By Him We Cry

 

Abba Father

 

The Spirit Himself Testifies With Our Spirit That We Are God’s Children.

 

Now If We Are Children Then We Are Heirs

 

—Heirs Of God And Co-Heirs With Christ

 

If Indeed We Share In His Sufferings

 

In Order That We May Also Share In His Glory.

 

Romans 8:14-17

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jesus

 

Who Is NOT Ashamed To Call Us His Brother

 

Has Provided The Cross As The Source Of Power

 

To Brake The Power Of Any Sin That We May Fall Into 

And We Will

 

 

For Christ Did Not Send Me To Baptize

 

But

 To Preach The Gospel

 

—Not With Wisdom And Eloquence

 

Lest The Cross Of Christ Be Emptied Of Its Power

 

For The Message Of The Cross Is Foolishness To Those Who Are Perishing

 

But

To Us Who Are Being Saved It Is The Power Of God.

 

1 Corinthians 1:17-18

 

 

*          *          *

 

Our Holy Spirit

 

Has Been Given To Us To Provide

 

The Power

 

Needed To Live A Life Of Purity And Holiness

 

But

You Will Receive Power When The Holy Spirit Comes On You…

 

Acts 1:8

 

*          *          *

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Your Wedding Night –

 

To Give Your Marriage Partner Your Virginity As A Gift

 

Meaning – Yes You Will Be Totally Inexperienced

 

But This Gift That You Fought For Is A Priceless Gift

 

And

When For The First Time You Enter Into Your Life Partner

 

You Will Reap The Rewards Of Being Obedient To Your Father God

 

*          *          *        

 

I Challenge Any Young Single Man To Ask An Old Godly Man

 

If Sex Is A Desire Or A Need

 

And Hear His Response

 

*          *          *

 

One Last Thought

 

If You Have Failed In This Area Of Your Life

Like I Have

 

Your Challenge Will Be

 

To Believe And Walk In The Reality

 

That The Cross Of Jesus

 

The Blood Of Jesus

 

Is Enough

 

To Cleanse You

 

And

Make You Pure And Holy Again

Point Three

Sex Is A Desire Not A Need

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

Goal

 

 

Having Our God’s Understanding Concerning Sex

 

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

Name Of Our God

 

 

Our God Is 

 

Glorious

 

*He Is Majestic,

 

 Awesome And Great Beyond Description

 

His Glory Is The Radiance Of All That He Is

 

*From the book Beholding the Beauty of God by Greg Wiley

Take Delight In The LORD

 


And He Will Give You The Desires Of Your Heart
