Lust is never satisfied. It grows stronger and stronger the more you give in and demands more and more from you each time. It drains your time, money, energy, and other resources. It repels the blessings, favor, and opportunities God is trying to bring to you.
Lust (or Whordoms) is a demonic strongman, that needs to be bound. Under this strongman are the symptoms of pornography, fornication, prostitution, adultery, chronic dissatisfaction, excessive appetite, love of money, seekers of power, filthy mind, incest, child abuse, etc. However lust is only a symptom. We must discover the root cause of our ungodly appetites.
Lust is an enticer. It’s never enough, and never seems like too much-until it’s too late. You have to kill it-before it kills you; and robs you of your destined place in God (not only in the afterlife, but also in the present). There is no other way. Grace may keep you for a season, however sin has to be judged by God, otherwise He wouldn’t be a righteous God. And God is perfect and cannot change in essence. He remains the same.
God cannot judge sin without including the sinner. A product cannot be judged or evaluated without the acknowledgment of the producer. The product is simply an extension of the producer. A murder is the product of the murderer. If one commits a sin, they are choosing to take accountability for that sin because it is their creation and an extension of what’s in their heart. While it’s true that God can forgive our sin, He gives us space to repent (which means to turn away), but one should not have a false sense of security residing in that space.
Many Christians focus on the afterlife when it comes to the concept of righteous judgement. However, judgement is a very present reality. We are awarded according to our actions daily. For instance, when we are obedient to God He rewards us with peace, righteousness, and joy (Romans 14:17). When we are disobedient we are also rewarded according to our disobedience. Both are a type of judgement.
When remaining in sin the ultimate reward is death. First is the spiritual death (or backsliding), then the physical death (separation of the soul from the body), and finally the death which is the permanent separation from God (also known as Hell).
