Pornography Addiction: Fighting Against Demons Part 2
Anybody wonder what’s going on? This morning on Facebook there was an article about a lady who had an abortion, and one of the comments was by another lady that said, ‘Well, you can’t do anything about it, abortion is legal,’ giving a big thumbs up. There was another comment from a guy who said God as a ‘fairy God.’ I wanted to say something to him but I couldn’t text it all out.
You see it on YouTube. YouTube seems to be the worst, Facebook the 2nd worst. Facebook, actually, it’s not against their ‘Community Standards,’ if you want to post the raunchiest, self-destruction suicide videos, they say it’s not against ‘their standards.’
But YouTube is the worst. You ever wonder what’s going on? I’m 44 years old, back when I was a kid it wasn’t that bad. It has been since the 90’s and it’s getting worse. I wanted to ask that guy on Facebook who did not believe in God, ‘Is he living in sin?’ Because this is the deal, ‘Because of the increase in our sins…’ (online pornography), ‘…our wickedness, the love of most will grow, be cold.’ You can see the coldness on YouTube all day long, all the comments.
There is a video store in my city. You can go in there, and there’s a whole nest of demons waiting to follow people home. I didn’t experience it, thank goodness. There’s a whole nest of them in there! I’ve been in there to rent a movie or two, not that garbage (pornography), no thank you, but I’ve been in there to rent a movie and I turn to the person next to me and asked, ‘Don’t you feel it? Don’t you feel how it feels in here? The oppression?’ Every person I’ve asked when I go in there, they say they feel it. I had to point it out to them so that they’d realize what’s going on. I hope I planted some seeds. They have an isle in the back of the store that says, ‘Adult.’ After you go, just once, to an adult bookstore, a demon can very well follow you home and you’ll be addicted to that and you’ll spend years wondering, ‘How come I can’t get rid of it? How can I get rid of it? I prayed. I prayed. I tried to ignore it, I tried to resist the devil,’ (or if you know it’s the devil). You just can’t get rid of it.
I tell you what, if you want to know or not if there’s a demon on you that still gets you to look at pornography, this is how you test it: let’s say you looked at pornography, and then the next day you don’t want to look at it at all. You absolutely want nothing to do with it. And then, it comes up again, that adrenaline, those thoughts, even to the point where you can’t sleep.
I wrote it down (this is just for young kids), 82% of young people look at pornography at least once a week. That’s almost every single person, almost everybody. That is the reason why hearts are growing cold.
There’s one ultimate way to getting rid of it: When you prayed, and now you don’t believe in God perhaps, when you prayed to get rid of it and it wouldn’t go away, what do you think is going on there? Because God heard you, he knows every hair on your head. What do you think is going on? Here it is: ‘Therefore, I urge you to present your bodies a living and Holy sacrifice acceptable to God.’
Many of you are trying to get rid of it, God is not going to let you. What’s that mean? God is not going to let you because (this is mentioned in the movie by the way, ‘Apparition,’ in dealing with these things), God wants you to give Him everything. That’s the reason why, although you prayed to get rid of it and He doesn’t help you and you result in pain, oppression, anger and everything that comes with demonic influence, God is saying, ‘I’m not going to help you. I don’t want just that, I want everything.’
A lot of people don’t know that. A lot of people don’t know that the reason why God is not answering is because he wants you to surrender everything. And I have some news for you, eternity started way before you were born. He knew you before he formed you. What I mean by that is, let’s say you get to Heaven, are you just going to give him 90%? Or 80% and then keep the leftover for yourself? No. God wants you to surrender everything. That’s why you cannot get rid of this pornography and this demon. I’ve got to tell you, [this addiction] is demonic. It is demonic! It’s a force that is much stronger than you, and God is waiting, saying, ‘I’ll take care of it for you, absolutely.’ But like Marcus in the movie, he says, ‘You have to give him your life. He wants all of it.’
If you think about it, what in the world would you want to hang on too? I’m serious! What do you want to hang on too? Let’s see, so many people have money problems, we have diseases, sickness, family problems, relationship problems, kids problems, spouse problems, job problems, car problems. What part do you want to keep to yourself? I find it a relief to say, ‘God, you can have it all! I don’t want it! I’m done!’ The price, the cost to make this film, it’s been off the charts. I am to the point, where, ‘God you can have it all, I don’t care. I am done.’
And there’s a relief in that, guys. I’ve got to tell you, you’re not God. If you want to get rid of the stuff, God is not going to let you be God. There’s only one God, and he wants to take all of you. Because like I said, eternity started way before you were born. A long time ago. He holds the keys to life and death. He holds the keys to Heaven and Hell. If you want to get rid of this stuff, addictions, drug addiction…what part of this world do you want to keep to yourself? I want none of it! He wants to have all of you. You’ve got to give him everything.
