The sin of Masturbation has been in existence for a long time without being tackled and most Christians Believers in this generation have engaged more in this act of the sinful Nature which is so detestable in the sight of God and it brings the Glory of Jesus Christ who died for sin and destroyed all the desires of the flesh on the cross. I have heard many cases regarding this sin, people looking for counseling and guidance on how it can be overcome and some try to inquire about the sin so much to live blameless Lives.
Actually this Sin is more encountered in the Christendom as well as the worldly people who have not yet received Salvation. I have also discovered that even in Marriages it happens especially when the woman has not reached the level of orgasm and also the men, so it’s done by either couple to satisfy their sexual arousement of reaching ejaculation.
Some pastors and teachers today have done more harm on this Subject by deceiving that it’s not a sin and my brother or Sister your Pastor is not telling you the truth, therefore you will be in danger of Hell fire for doing such an act of Sinful Nature.
Sometime I wonder because since Most Pastors are not called by God they have perverted in grace of Jesus Christ by encouraging Sexual immorality. The scriptures talks about this perversion of Grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ;
Masturbation is an erotic stimulation especially of one’s own genital organs commonly resulting in orgasm and achieved by manual or other bodily contact exclusive of sexual intercourse, by instrumental manipulation, occasionally by sexual fantasies, or by various combinations of these agencies.
Masturbation is the sexual stimulation of one’s own genitals for sexual arousal or other sexual pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm. The stimulation may involve hands, fingers, everyday objects, sex toys or combinations of these. Mutual masturbation, mutual manual stimulation of the genitals between partners, can be a substitute for sexual penetration.
Masturbation is an act of self-gratification rather than a part of giving gratification and pleasure to one’s partner. Having looked at the definitions we can see that it’s so disgusting to do it and it denies the creation of God and that’s creation blasphemy of God planning for Human. You must understand that what God has not ordained is always a sin. Let’s look at the biblical references regarding the same.
- How Is Masturbation Sinful To God?
Firstly the sin of Masturbation brings more other sins especially looking at the creation of God beginning from Genesis; God created a Man for a purpose of creation and procreation through them that he would fill the universe and the Devil came and brought sin to destroy the universe that was beautifully created by God. This is what God said before creating human;
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” Genesis 1: 26-28.
Looking closely at the scripture God said, Be fruitful and increase in number and subdue the earth or fill the earth. And now the devil has brought so many ways of taking people to hell by deception and this has kept many people in ignorance and mostly in destruction for eternal damnation. If you relate the scripture to the Masturbation Sin.
firstly it will be Killing because when you release the semen outside you would have killed the baby that would have been Born and now that’s a sin and also you are perverted the creation of God by not doing the right thing because there is not woman or Man involved at the same for such an act.
Sometimes the Married do it themselves and this is also condemned because you are killing and despising God’s creation. For God saw it was not good for a Man to live alone and he created a helper who is a Woman and the Bible doesn’t say that woman shall have self-stimulation for sexual gratification as well the Man.
Looking at the scripture we all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God and there is no fear of God before their eyes. But through Grace we have been justified through Jesus Christ by his redemption from sin by shedding his precious blood on the cross. This means that Jesus Christ has overcome every sin and therefore Grace of God that Jesus Christ came with removes and overcomes sin.
Why then indulge yourselves in Sin, it means you have no fear of God if you continue indulging in all kinds of impurity you deny the Faith of Redemption by Jesus Christ on cross. Therefore by Masturbating yourself or by your spouse or whatever kind of way you are doing it, you denying the Faith of Creation of God and also the command God gave a Man and a Woman.
Not only that you are committing a sin but you are denying the unification of a Man and a Woman. For God loves Holiness and Righteousness therefore you cannot enter the Kingdom of God with impurity and never will it ever happen. Once you have come out of darkness then you can’t live the same way you lived in the darkness.
You must live as the children of light because Jesus Christ is Light who has overcome every kind of sin. Therefore Masturbation is kind of act of sinful nature and it’s from the darkness meaning it’s from the devil. Therefore Masturbation is a sin that will lead you to Hell.
For it is God’s will that each person who has come to Jesus Christ should sanctified and avoid any kind of sexual immorality and have self-control by not again engaging ourselves in passionate lust of the sinful nature and for God did not call to be impure but to live a Holy Life. Therefore you must change your way of living.
Whenever you are masturbating you are as worse as a person in fornication, Adultery, and as a person who has done perversion because you are having sex with demons, spiritually the demons have caused this act to be done but also demons have come through yourself indulgence in the sinful nature acts.
- The Causes Of Sin Of Masturbation:
Masturbation Sin is mostly brought by either by the Friends you have if they do it and when you have a fellow friend who does it, that same Spirit follows you because you submit to one another also most churches today are not faithful, most Pastors, Teachers and Prophets are spreading heresy to the congregation to make the church remain in impurity that will lead many to Hell.
Imagine now days you find someone who joined a church when he or she was not masturbating and neither possessed the Spirit of Masturbation but after joining the Church, you discover such person has developed the spirit that leads him or her always to Masturbation, from youth and to the Married .
Over 70% have been proven in this very act and they call it safe sex, which is very dangerous. The reason why you get it from the church is that you submit to that head of the church and its leaders because they carry those Spirits of sinful nature because they do them, so even when he prays for you it becomes more severe because devil can’t cast out devil.
Most people have been affecting by fake anointing that is on the Pastors of today due to the sins they commit and affect the church flock, imagine if your Pastor fornicates then that Spirit will be in the church, and if your Pastor does Masturbation, then the church will be affected with this Kind of sinful Act and also carry it to their homes and affects others because of submission.
Spirits or evils transfer when there is submission between people or between two people. Masturbation Spirit has been carried by watching Movies of Pornography, Soaps Operas, sexual Magazines, movies that are sexually attached.
Most movies that come from the Hollywood have been tasked to bring this Spirit into the Actors on screen and as you watch and admire this Actor because the submission you were giving unto to the person, you are accepting your Spirit to be taken by the demon assigned in the movie.
And instantly the demons will commenced their attacks. They will start recommending and suggesting to you to masturbate yourself. They will echo in your in heart “Heh, do it. Yes, do it and feel the whole pleasure as it run through you spin. Heh, look, no one is around. why no go inside the bathroom or toilet and feel the whole pleasure?
Heh, look your wife is not here so feel free to satisfy yourself. It’s not a sin because you are married and didn’t commit fornication” And after much debates and struggled you will eventual yield and after lustful satisfaction you will start blaming and cursing yourself due to lack of understanding on how the demon operates and prayerlessness.
- The Effects Of Masturbation:
After you have engaged yourself in such kind of impurity you have left your soul vulnerable by Evil forces therefore causing you to sin, the result will be Hell. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23. Those who insert objects as aids to masturbation risk them becoming stuck (e.g. as rectal foreign bodies). Men and women can fall prey to this problem.
A woman went into a German hospital with two pencils in her bladder. She had inserted them into her urethra during masturbation. The nervous system is affected the most.
Besides the heart, the digestive system, the urinary system as well as the other systems is adversely affected and consequently the whole body becomes the museum of diseases with profound weakness.
The eyes become sunken, the cheek bones protrude and there is a black rim round the eyes. Continuous headache and backache. Dizziness and loss of memory. Nervousness. Unable to perform any heavy physical or mental work. All the senses are impaired. Vision becomes dim, the tongue begins to stammer and ears tend to become deaf. Insanity and Impotency.
It causes divorce since the two married are no longer satisfying themselves, and this will lead to another sin of divorce that will lead to Adultery because divorcement is sinful.
- Psychic Effects: Masturbation has a tendency to isolate its captives psychologically and socially. In masturbation, the person is focused on self-alone even though he or she usually is fantasizing about someone else at the same time.
- Emotional Deprivation: It is impossible for the one who is practicing this habit to experience the full extent of sex emotions. Therefore, in short-circuiting the emotions one can easily be removed from the world of reality.
- Damaged Sensibility: The habit of masturbation has a tendency in numbing the mechanism of the sexual organs if practiced excessively. This lessens the sensibility and thus detracts from normal sexual relations of married life.
- Control Of The mind: Along with the act of masturbation comes the fantasy of the mind. When practiced often, a pattern or cycle seems to become established within the individual’s mind. Thus, perversion has a tendency to control the mind and this in turn initiates the act. The real danger lies in the guilt that increases as the individual dwells in this world of fantasy.
- Solutions To Overcome Masturbation:
Repentance, you can overcome the sin of Masturbation by confessing and Repenting from your sins and called upon Jesus Christ to help you, meaning you have to avoid again places that involve in impurity because if you go to such places that will bring back the desire then that Spirit again.
For Jesus Christ says, Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Mathew 11; 28-30.
Its only Jesus Christ that overcame therefore you must come to him for the rest of your soul because beside him there is no other Savior. Masturbation sin also shows that you are real captive of Satan and being used by the demons sexually so you need Jesus Christ in your life to overcome masturbation.
You need the Power of the Holy Spirit to overcome this act because he is the one who can convict you to come out of sin and brings repentance to you, therefore you must be careful about where you worship or the church you fellowship because the majority of the churches have no Holy Spirit who overcomes because they blasphemed him, and they use other evil Powers.
Beloved look for a church that Holy Spirit filled rather than looking for Pastors who can preach and speak well. Avoid watching worldly movies as Christian believers because you will only affect your Spiritual life and bringing impurity upon yourself that will continue to bring this kind of evil Spirit that will lead you to Hell.
I have made research and discovered that most Christian believers all over the world watch Movies that are sexual immoral, listen to Love worldly songs, they watch Soap Operas, some go to the Bar and Disco Clubs, I assuring you that of such kind you only remain in sin and therefore shall be condemned for desiring the works of Devil of the sinful nature.
You must avoid such kinds of impurity and wicked practices done by the Pagans. That’s why the scripture says; It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister.
The Lord will punish all those who commit the sinful act of masturbation. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12; 1-2.
Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Corinthians 18-20.
