Hebrews 13:4

Forsake Sexual Atheism and Follow Him

Transcript

Hebrews 13:4 marriage is to be held in honor among all and the marriage bed is to be undefiled for fornicators and adulterers God will judge the crazy thing that I find today is there are a lot of Christians that we find in congregations that I would call sexual atheists what do I mean by sexual atheist that’s somebody that says I’m a follower of the LORD Jesus Christ but yet when you look at their sexual behavior they behave as an atheist they don’t follow any of the precepts of the word of God they violate precepts in the word they think absolutely nothing of serial monogamy for example which Yeshua said was adultery seven times they think nothing of sleeping with a boyfriend or a girlfriend or moving in and living with a boyfriend or a girlfriend without being married I call this sexual atheism we find people that regularly go to church people that regularly believe the Bible and it’s interesting they read the Bible and believe the Bible in other areas but when it comes to sexual behavior somehow or another all of a sudden the Bible is antiquated all of a sudden it’s irrelevant it doesn’t matter and people think nothing of adultery they think nothing of fornication they think nothing of all kinds of sexual relationships that are classified in the Bible as sin and I call them sexual atheists they’re basically people who claim to be followers of the LORD but yet in their sexual behavior they just somehow or another are atheists they’re not looking at the word of God not believing the word of God the reason I say that is just to challenge you in your own thoughts there are things that are coming more and more in society that we’re asked to tolerate tolerate is the… toleration is the big word in society in church the word is if you think that anything is wrong you’re judgemental you’re a hypocrite, you’re a pharisee you’re not allowed to say that anything is wrong we’re supposed to just accept everything and yes I agree we accept everybody but we separate identity from behavior we accept people but there are many behaviors that the Bible calls sin and we’re not called to accept so let’s look again at what the scripture says 3 things marriage is to be held in honor among all so that means marriage is a covenant it’s not a contract it’s unconditional it’s unilateral it’s irrevocable it is the prophetic picture of Yeshua Ha Mashiach and his bride on this earth and the second thing marriage bed is to be undefiled what defiles a marriage bed well we could think of many things but the 2 things that are mentioned here specifically are fornication and adultery those things defile marriage they cheapen marriage they make marriage of no account and they defile the marriage bed and the third thing that the author of Hebrews says fornicators and adulterers God will judge that’s probably not a very popular word but I think there are many many people that are going to be shocked they’re going to be surprised when they stand face to face with the LORD because things that were acceptable and accepted in society they’re going to find out are classified as sin by the LORD and here are people that have never repented they’ve lived as sexual atheists and so let me just define maybe it’s difficult for people to even know what fornication is fornication is anytime there are two people having sexual relationship with one another and they’re not married there’s no covenant of marriage sexual relationship according to the word of God is relegated to the covenant of marriage and marriage only not outside of marriage and then adultery what is that adultery is when two people are having a sexual relationship with one another and there is a spouse that one of them has been married to or is married to that’s still living Jesus calls this adultery and so there are many many people that are accepting adultery as normal accepting fornication as normal and yet I think these are actually sexual atheists now the issue here is not judging someone else it’s not thinking I know 5 people that are doing that we need to get this word to them no no no no no what you need to understand is God what about me what about my heart? do I embrace pornography as normal do I entertain that do I allow that Lord that’s sin that’s something that I need you to deal with in my heart how about fornication do I accept that? how about adultery do I accept that? same sex relationships these are things that the Bible talks about Lord do I think that these things are normal sexual relationships that the Bible talks about as sin no we need to return and let the Bible be the standard of truth and so let me just read this scripture again marriage is to be held in honor among all and the marriage bed is to be undefiled for fornicators and adulterers God will judge Father would you just speak to each one of us about our own attitude that we might not be found as sexual atheists that we might not allow our behavior our attitudes, our thoughts to be other than that which is glorifying to you and pleasing to you Lord touch each one of our hearts speak to us what you want us to know Lord not that we would judge and condemn others but God that we would just judge ourselves and let ourselves come into alignment with your word I pray that you would do that for each one of us and Lord that we would be able to bless other people that we encounter today in the mighty name of Yeshua Amen
