Fornication, adultery, pornography, and masturbation are all evil in the sight of God. These things will send a person to hell, lest they repent. The Holy Spirit has born witness of this wickedness and the Bible confirms it. Please do not justify any of these perverse lifestyles, if you claim to be saved in Christ Jesus. The Lord does not tolerate a person that gives into the lusts of the flesh. And that is why these types of people will not go to heaven. This is because, instead of allowing God to cleanse their wicked heart, they continue to willfully sin. Paul taught, 2“know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” As you can see here, fornicators and adulterers are on this list. Now, let us define an adulterer. Jesus said, 1“whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” So taking the definition of Jesus into account, adultery is not just the act of having sex with a person that is already married but also when somebody looks at a person with lust. When a person looks at porn, they are looking with lust to that image or the person/s in the video each time. This is a vial act in the sight of God.
As the Bible teaches, adultery, fornication and pornography is not tolerated with God and therefore, these people will feel the wrath of God in judgement, lest they repent. So what about masturbation. To speak to that, we must know what the Bible teaches about sex. Sex should only be done between husband and wife. Paul said, 3“to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.” So what is masturbation? It is giving into our sexual urges with our self and not our spouse. Generally speaking, pornography often leads to this act, along with a person’s lustful thoughts. And because lust is involved, this also goes along with what Jesus said about adultery. No matter how a person wants to justify this act, the very fact that a person is giving over to the lusts of the flesh, it is wrong. James says it is even better, 4“but every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin.” The key here is drawn away to a person’s own lust and enticed. Then when the deed is done in masturbation, it brings forth sin. The very nature of this act is lust and sexual fulfillment of the flesh. I pray that each of you will come to Christ and be cleansed from all sin. I once did all these things but I have been changed by the blood of Jesus. I give praise to God for cleansing my wicked heart.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that You will send the Holy Spirit to convict people’s hearts of their sexual sins. To many people say they are Christians but still practice sexual sin and justify it. It is very disheartening to see these people live in sin and not even be aware of it. It seems that Satan has its grips on so many people and because of it, they are blinded to their wickedness. May this all pass away Lord. Heal their blindness, that they may see the wickedness that they are in. Give them eyes to see their brokenness. I pray that these people will see that fornication, adultery, pornography and masturbation is evil and unholy. May they confess their sins and repent. Please come and cleanse them of these sins. Help them resist temptation as You help me. I know that I was once like these people, but You came and did a mighty work in my heart. You were the one that cast out the darkness and brought me into the light. You have restored me. Now I am strong to resist temptation. Thank You Jesus. I love You. Amen.

1Matthew 5:27-30 (KJV)
27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
