WAY OUT OF THE BONDAGE OF MASTURBATION

WAY OUT OF THE BONDAGE OF MASTURBATION
I have received calls and messages for counsels and prayer on the issue of masturbation than many others, and Satan is using this on many youth and even older Christians, making them to remain stagnant in their spiritual growth and exposing them to evil forces.
 
You can’t finish masturbate and you feel free in God’s presence, your conscience will tell you something is wrong, that you are defiled. If you now feel no quilt in masturbating, it means you have silenced or killed your conscience, since the Spirit of God will not continue to strive with a man, but you know it wasn’t like that at the initial.
 
Masturbation is satanic anchor by which he uses to grip souls under his bondage. The solution is not to argue it is not a sin, the solution is not marriage or attractive spouse, that will never solve problem of lust.
 
The solutions are:
(i) You repent and rededicate your life to Jesus by admitting it as a sin against God and ready to forsake all your sins, not only masturbation.
 
(ii) You watch out against it. You detach yourself from immoral materials, movies, music and thoughts. Resist the devil when he brings the pressure on you to masturbate; just hold the feeling and resist the devil, it will seems you can’t survive or resist it when the temptation overwhelm you.
 
Behind masturbation is an immoral demon, I have been in such situation before, but he can’t stay long, he will flee because your strength is in Jesus Christ, not your power, you should always remember that when it comes. It will come over you as if you can’t resist it, but that is not true, you just hold it, don’t torch, don’t play along with the feeling, and don’t think about. It is a sin and you don’t want to bring yourself under the bondage anymore. The more you resist and overcome the feeling, the more you are strong, keep watching, it can go and come after some months, don’t relax but guard to resist.
 
(iii) Pray about it. You must take it to God in your daily prayer to conquer the sinful notion and nature; pray for grace and strength to resist, to discipline your body and keep it under the Spirit of God.
 
What many Christians do not know is that new life in Jesus is a war between God and Satan, between flesh and Spirit of God, and your heart is the battle ground. You must see masturbation as war and ready to stand and subdue your flesh. It is applicable to all children of God, not you alone. Flesh will come, but don’t let it overcome you again.
 
Apostle Paul, after many years of his salvation in Christ, he said, “But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.” 1 Corinthians 9:27.
 
We must continuously discipline our body – tongue, feelings, legs, hands, eyes, ears, etc. no matter how long you have been saved or how genuine your salvation is.
 
What many Christians do not understand is that after their souls are saved in Christ, the flesh is not saved. Your body is Satan’s device to war against your saved soul, so you must discipline your body and subdue it to the Spirit of God by the Word of God, by watchfulness and daily prayer. This is the reason why many Christians fall back into sins, because they are ignorant of this, but we must not be ignorant of devices of Satan.
