Nr. 425:

King David had the choice to resist and reject the temptation or open up to it and give in to it. The choice was his, not God!

King David even chose to sin and follow their own carnal desires even though he showed better. When we choose sin before the Lord is never anything wrong with the Lord and us. This illustration of King David and Bathsheba

James 1 13 No one say when he is tempted, I am tempted by God. For God can not be tempted by evil and he himself tempts no one. 14 But every man is tempted when he is drawn and enticed by his own lust, then 15, when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: but when sin has become full-grown, brings forth death. 16 Be not deceived, my beloved brethren!

God tempts no one and all who are tempted and drawn enticed by his own lust and ego!

Satan appears in 1 Chronicles 21 1. And Satan stood up against Israel and incited David to number Israel. But the very name shows up there for the first time does not necessarily mean that the character has not appeared previously. He also goes by the names that serpent, the dragon, the devil, etc. (and here I would remind you that most people probably agree that the Devil and Satan are one and the same - but know that the term "devil" does not show up until Matthew Gospel., it does not mean that the Devil appeared also in GT). Especially with a mario logical understanding of original sin story is easy to see the connection between the devil of 1 Genesis and Revelation from the devil. It is written: "The great dragon was hurled down-that ancient serpent called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels with him" (Revelation 12, 1-2). The devil deceived the world by luring the first human sin, that Adam and Eve. Thus we are all tainted by original sin (with a few exceptions), and the devil has thus "seduced the entire world." This is the classic story of 1 Exodus where the devil slangeham lures Eve to eat of the Tree of Life, in which she again lures Adam with him.

King David had every chance of experiencing a life away from Sin

In many ways lived the life of David in God's special blessing. God tells him that all he wanted and pointed out, he did. God spared not the candy to him. Talk about having everything it takes to live holy and clean!

1 Sam. 12. 7 Then Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus says the Lord God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul, 8, and gave thee thy master's house and your master's wives into your bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and Judah, and it was too little, I would moreover have given thee still more, both the one and the other. 9 Why have you despised the word and done what is evil in his sight?

To get everything or nothing is never Conditions to experience victory over sin

We read here about King David who fell deeply, deeply. He committed adultery and to hide his shame he killed the husband of the woman he committed adultery with and thus opened up to sin and Satan wide gap in their lives.

2 Sam. 12. 9 Why have you despised the word and done what is evil in his sight? Uriah the Hittite you have struck with his sword, his wife, and hast taken his wife to thyself, and hast slain him with the sword of the Ammonites. 10 Now therefore the sword shall never depart from your house, because you despised me and taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be his wife for yourself. 11 Thus saith the Lord: Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, I will take your wives before your eyes and give them to your neighbor, and he shall lie with your wives, as the sun here is witness to that. 12 For what you did, you did in secret, but I will do this thing before all Israel and before the sun. '

There was no excuse for King David's sin!

The Psalmist writes the following about one of God's foremost covenant promises: "If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments, if they violate my statutes, and keep not my commandments, then I will punish their sin with the rod, and their iniquity with strokes. But my mercy I will not take from him, and my faithfulness I will not fail. I will not break my covenant and did not change it that went over my lips. "(Psalm 89:31-35). We rejoice when we read these wonderful words of the New Covenant. God promises to never take away his mercy from us, no matter how bad we fail. But many believers skips lightly over the grave warning in this verse: If we leave God's law and refuse to keep His commandments, He will punish our offenses, with its divine rice. There is simply no way one can depleted these words. God tells us plainly, "If you continue in sin, so I'm going to have to take care of you in a very strict manner. I will give you grace and forgive you. But I have to do in return for your sin. And you will feel my lashes on your back. "

The Bible says that the Lord loves, he chastens. We see this truth vividly illustrated in David's life. Consider how the Lord dealt with this man, a faithful servant who enjoyed pleasure of the Lord's favor. At one point in her life sinned David cruel - just did it and kept it hidden for months. Finally God said "Enough" - and sent Nathan the prophet to expose David's sin. Nathan used an analogy to tear up any excuse David had to have, until the king finally admitted, "I have sinned - I'm guilty." But to simply admit sin is not enough. God not only revealed David - he also left his divine spell falling over his servant's back. We know of course that the Lord always uses his wand in love. But David's life shows us clearly, that to feel God correcting spelling is no small matter. The kind that falls are painful and agonizing. And often falls not stick only on us but also on our loved ones and those who are close to us. Look at the direct result of David's sin of those who stood near him: The illegitimate child he bred with Bathsheba died. Thousands of Israelite soldiers were killed in combat. He brought scandal over his nation, and made Israel a laughingstock in the enemy's eyes. And as if that were not enough of ailments, David went through an endless personal pain because of his sin: he lost the throne of Israel to his rebellious son Absalom. He was chased by Absalom's army like a wild animal. He had to flee into the wilderness from his son that he loved so much. And he wept uncontrollably when Absalom was killed. David knew that all of this could have been avoided. Each outrageous event was a painful reminder of the consequences of his sin. He expressed his endless pain through the Psalms, and wrote that his soul was in constant agony, he was cast down in confusion, his rent was a bed full of tears. He cried out in pain, "God, why have you forsaken me?" And he cried in fear, "God did not take your Holy Spirit from me." God belief spelling led David to the brink of his sanity. And, as you'll see, as it led him to the grave.

If you continue in sin, you will experience an increasing loss of peace and strength.

David wrote: "My strength is broken because of mine iniquity, and my bones are wasted." (Ps. 31:11). Like a hole in the fuel tank of a car, your sin slowly drain you of all resources. Your peace, joy and strength will literally drip away until it is completely empty. David confessed: ".... there is no peace in my bones for my sins. "(Ps. 38:4). He said: "All my strength is gone because of my sin. My body has become weak because of what I've done. My sin makes me simply not allowed to rest. " David experienced God's piercing arrows. He wrote: "For your arrows have hit me and your hand is heavy on me." (Ps. 38:3). Still had the dear servant be trained in the fear of God. And part of the painful lesson he had to learn was that he had lost the peace of God. Now, he cried out, "He weakened my strength ...." (Psalm 102:24). I know Christians who live a life of utter confusion because they continue to indulge in sin. These hollow souls are always degraded, weak, always struggling, but going nowhere. I also know of pastors who can not sit still because of their sin. They are constantly on the move, work and never come into the Lord's rest. It does not matter who you are - if you harbor a hidden sin, you will experience frequent disruptions in your life, your home, your family, your work. Everything you touch will be in disarray. You will become increasingly restless, confused, tossed about by endless worries and fears. And all your peace and strength will be drained out of you.

Do we need more and more time to prepare to avoid falling or living in sin?

I know that there are those who believe that King David did not live enough consecrated subject before he sinned with Bathsheba

1 Sam. 11. 1. The year after, the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants, and all Israel, and they ravaged the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained in Jerusalem. 2 Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked around on the roof of the king, when he received from the roof a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful in appearance.

We all need time to be alone with God and ourselves. King David also. But he abused this time by looking at contemporary porn. He was "porno depends." His house was higher than the other which mostly took place on the rooftops with regard to swimming etc. King David used this to study other women as they bathed naked and incited and goaded him up. The truth was that he was defiled and possessed of the same spirit and attitude that those who look and depend on porn today.

Porn creates dependency and again opens up sin and demonic activity in your and my life if we open up for it! Porn is a gateway for all sins, but it starts with porn. Therefore abhor it like the plague!

If we read through Jesus teaching that we understand that Jesus went further than Moses, for example in saying, "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart" Matthew 5:27-28 Coveting or shine on a different woman from the one you are married to is wrong. Because opening the heart door open for sin and being plagued by demons. Thus, the fruit is ultimately a big hassle. It does therefore not that most men manage to overcome all thoughts, but it is not impossible. It deals well with what Jesus said the way to life is narrow, Matt 7:14. The deal ultimately what's good for your own soul, and the goal is always to live a sanctified life. Pornography is Satan's big attraction today, to turn people's minds away from God. It is simply evil. And we should talk about it, because drugs and alcohol, we often hear about and warn against, but rarely pornography. But it can be just as addictive and almost impossible to break unless the Lord intervenes.

I once heard a story about a little place in the U.S. that banned pornographic outlets (before the Internet's time). And the crime rate fell by over 50%. I know that violence and pornography hangs happily together. Sometimes sincere Christians seeking pornography online because they seek to comfort themselves or try to fill up one kind of void / pain in their life. But generally increased, pain, and you get problems like relationships with people who are important in your life. Moreover, if you are doing pornography in secret, it is very possible that your own children would do the same. Open the home for various spirits of lust, it also carries consequences for others. Just look at the fruit of David's lust.

The issue is how one becomes free? One tries and tries but is not free. It's actually not always as easy as it looks.

Most commonly desire that can not be cut out, spirits, or what we call demons. They enslave you. One can cast out demons in Jesus' name. But generally, if you are bound by this, it may be deeper stuff sitting in the soul. It could be unforgiveness / bitterness example. against his father, or the other. And then you have to actually start there. One must bless the people you have spoken negatively about and forgive anyone who you think has done something stupid to you, or people in authority (including parents) who might have abused you / or committing violence against you. It does not deal with your feelings, just that you do it in faith. Certainly bless those you can not bless, 2-3 times per day until the bitter feelings disappear. Moreover, one must also love yourself. One can not love his neighbor without loving themselves and forgive themselves. So you have to put your name on the different types of spirits that bind you, by seeking God in prayer and fasting. One takes only down one paper, and write down the thoughts the Lord gives you (like, resentment, inferiority, rejection, self-loathing, etc. etc. ...)

So happy to find a brother (or sister if you are female) and confess your sins, and then in the eyes of God, there they were no more. The blood of Jesus is enough! So you have to actually drive out demons. And one must not give up. This can often be just over a match. Demons would often not leaving you (it is, after all, their place of residence) and often they try to may hide themselves. Demons can ease the pressure of desire, and suddenly you notice for a while that it is good. But then you come into the presence of God, and desire flare ups. Demons can not stand the presence of God, just as they did when Jesus appeared in the synagogue, Mark 1:23 (But sometimes, it is enough to say: I pronounces you spirit of lust / desire, and it leaves you on the spot). Many Christians, who may never have surrendered to the Lord in the deep, wild might see pornography as something "natural". But if you have the Holy Spirit inside, so it would be a match for your bad choices, and what are the right choices, a struggle for the pure and the impure in your life. There are also a lot of what Paul writes about in Romans 8 (read entire Romans) Therefore wild some Christians think it's okay with pornography, but one that is godly, wild him / her feel that this is wrong. And about mixing the crude with a pure, one can get a mental breakdown. When the Bible talks about faith struggle, as is much of the battle going on inside oneself. More than the external pressure. When God has cleansed us on the inside, and built one deep foundation in his Word, so wild nor any external pressure could rip you over. One is whether "the weather". Because the roots of their food in the clean source, and all the weeds are weeded out.

Final Comment: Too bad in all forms is and remains dangerous, destructive and negative for a believer. It is important to take their precautions and Loathing sin in all its forms like the plague. If than not it does so sin will make a distinction between you and the only true God, and him he sent Jesus Christ. Than to lose the community and it is not even saved, always saved. Salvation is something we need to experience every day and live in salvation!
