is a builder whereas Satan is nothing but a destroyer. From the time
Lucifer chose to rebel and sin against God, he has done nothing but
leave a trail of destruction. The Devil is very good at twisting God’s
words and perverting His creation.
God created mankind with the capacity to reproduce through sexual
relations and the Devil seized upon this beautiful relationship and
turned it into something evil and detestable. Sexual intercourse between
a husband and wife is more than just procreating. There is emotional
feelings and physical pleasure associated with the relationship that
endures beyond the woman’s ability to get pregnant. Physical and
emotional intimacy is God’s gift to the couple; its intended purpose is
good and enjoyable and God means for it to last until their time on
earth comes to an end.
The first thing the Devil did after the fall of man was to pervert the
sexual dynamic of marriage by enticing parents to have sexual relations
with their children. Relatives were prompted to have sex with one
another and Satan also introduced homosexuality to mankind. When some of
the fallen angels had sexual relations with women, God had no other
remedy than to exterminate the human race because they had been
contaminated. Noah and his family were spared but it did not take long
after the Great Flood for Satan to sexually corrupt the human race. It
eventually became so bad that God sent fire and brimstone to destroy the
cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding areas.
When God called Moses to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt, He
wanted to establish a code for the Israelites which would regulate their
sexual lives and it became part of the Practical Law as found in the
Book of Leviticus. Contrary to what some may believe, God's sexual laws
have not changed over the years. God is the not the author of confusion
and Jesus expects His disciples to follow the sexual code given to
Moses. In this message we are going to examine what God said about sex;
what is allowed and what is not allowed. As the world continues to sink
into a cesspool of immorality, Christians must take a stand for the Lord
and leave the results up to Him.

Scriptures together Sunday morning at 9:00 AM PST.
