Holy Body (Part 2)
TEXT: 1Corinthians 6:15-20
INTRODUCTION: Devil attacks an unsaved man through his spirit, soul and body but he attacks the saved man through his body and soul. Devil has no power over the spirit of a saved man.
1 Corinthians 6:15 “Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 6:16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
Every person you sleep with is joined with you. If you have slept with ten people, you are joined with all of them. You have entered into covenant with each person you slept with and that covenant is binding until those people die. This covenant is what the devil capitalises on to retrogress or stagnate man. Devil uses this covenant to incarcerate man. It is a captivity that requires deliverance.
It takes the mercy of God for such a person to be free from such bondage because the man and woman involved are joined in the spirit realm. Sex is done in the body but has effect in the spirit realm. It is a shedding of blood that binds the two parties. Sexual immorality is a seed in the spirit realm. Some people have given birth to all their children in the spirit realm.
Apart from the covenant involved, man wastes his manhood, his strength, his glory, his power, his might, his destiny, his honour, his future etc. While woman loses her virtue, power, honour, glory and confidence. If you marry a wo/man that is in covenant with some wo/men, you are in trouble. Some marriages are suffering because of unbroken covenant that either of the couple had entered into… Unless you are born again, you cannot be free. And if you are born again but have defiled the temple of the Holy Spirit, you need deliverance from the covenant before the devil attacks you.
He that is joined to harlot is one body but he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit. A harlot is someone who has slept with more than one person. The reason why Christians have to flee fornication is because our bodies are spiritual and a palace of the king of kings. It is a dishonour to the Holy Spirit to commit fornication. It is also a dishonour to your spirit man. It is worth noting that devil uses sexual immorality as a tool to detach man from God than any other type of sin…to be continued!
NOTE: Whoever overcomes lusts will go far and do well in the things of the spirit…
