Do all men lust?
Do all men lust? “No.” And as Christian men are counted, there should be many more who side with Christ and not with the lifestyle of lusting.
Men Of God should not faint at the slightest sign of a women within ear range or eyesight. They should be pure, and walk straight in this world that is so bent. For we are a witness for God or against our own souls.
Yet on the other hand, the witnessing by masses of Christians not lusting would shake the whole world.
So the question needs to be asked, Do all men lust? Because we know that by one man not lusting the whole world is without excuse to lust. For did not God use Noah as an example?
We should not lust (commit adultery) out of love for our Lord. John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
Also we should not lust after who we should love, with the love of God. Women as a whole, desire a man who wants just one woman in his heart. If this is not the case she will never amount to what she could become in Christ. Yet, let us not forget this about lusting and its cost to the church. Purity would keep the doors of the church open day and night, purity will produce purity, and purity will see and hear sin from a mile away.
So when we ask, “Do all men lust?” We must consider if men turned to purity, and quit lusting as a lifestyle, what would be the result. 1. They would never accept any lifestyle of sin within their hearts, their homes, their churches and their leaders. Yet lust as a life style has its grips on the heart of nearly every man who proclaims Christ as their master.
The sin of lusting, is as all sin. It starts at the top, When the leaders of the common church have not the faith to stand against lusting, the parishioners are all to fast to follow. This I personally know, I fought against lusting for fifteen years and it was a battle I ending fighting alone. I asked myself and God many times, “Do all men lust!”
I ended up going to pastors and leaders and received words that were void to my soul, I went to youths (men are youths until they put the sin of lusting underfoot). 2 Tim 2:22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. KJV.
I received scriptures, to back-up a lusting lifestyle. And I went to sleep a beaten youth. I awoke with lust still ruling my life and I knew deep within my soul it was sin and God was not pleased with my way of living.
It haunted my soul, “do all men lust!” was my fear for years.
This is why I give you hope in Christ against lust and its bondage upon your soul.
Even if a whole city is bent towards the ways of lusting, the men of that city who proclaim Christ as their God should be set apart from the ways of that city. The Bible tells us to be in the world but to not be a part of the world.
DON’T FOLLOW THE PATHS OF MEN, THEY ARE LIKE RIVERS. THEY FLOW DOWN HILL. FOLLOW CHRIST AND BE APPREHENDED BY CHRIST.
Paul didn’t change to fit into the society of Corinth, some sinners in Corinth were transformed and joined to the body of Christ, by Paul. Be of good courage and let your heart not grow faint, be not transformed into the image of this world, but begin to fight against the ways of lusting. Not by works alone, but by faith and works.
Do all men lust who you know? Then be the only man that doesn’t” don’t bend the knee to Baal. 1 Kings 19:18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
Their are many do not do’s. Yet there is the greater thing that must be done. Matt 22:37-40 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. KJV.
I will share with you from my heart, mind, soul and strength on how to put lust underfoot. How to walk in a society that is more guiltier than Sodom, for we have Christ, and Sodom would have repented if they would have seen the signs of Christ. Matthew 11:23 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
Know this, my dear friend. You shall overcome this world with all its ways of lust or you shall be apprehended by it. Read (liberty and bondage.) (home page.)
Do All Men Lust; The Cost To The Church
I will share this one thing with you, if you know that your pastor or leaders lust after women, know this. They lust after your own wife and daughters (given the right age.) Also men of such ill spiritual condition, in no manner can help you when it comes to being free from the sexual sins of this world. If asked, “Do all men lust, they may answer, “yes.”
Also those men who lust are in no condition, to teach whole families on how to live a pure life in Christ. Could you imagine, telling a drunk, “Go to the local bar to be set free from being a drunk.”
Well it is no better, when a pastor who lust’s, tries to tell others to live a moral life. Matthew 15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Also when a man who lust (commits adultery in his heart) tries to lead men against sexual things that are evil. He shall never succeed. In other words, the church can do all it wants to, but it will never amount to much of anything. As long as sexual deviancy is allowed to exist at all levels.
Do not be blind, nor deaf, hear these words, “It is Gods plan, that you overcome all sinful lifestyles that rule men. It is mentioned eight times in the book of Revelation “the reward of heaven to those that overcome the sins of this world.” I will say it again, “Do not be fooled, that you can live in sin as a lifestyle and be so near to Christ as to inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. For this I know, You would not say the fornicator, the homosexual, the drunk, or the drug addict would inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. If they never repented of their sinful lifestyles. And if you do, it is because of sin from within. And if a man can live in a lifestyle of sin without repentance, then let us have tea at church and beauty shows, concerts, bingo and a thousand others gizmo’s.
Yet because of lust going unchecked, all the sins under the sun will soon be acceptable to man. Yes all sins.
I tell you the truth, I fought for years to be free from lusting, I will in time show you how to be free from the ways of lust. Much quicker than it took me. Yet you must be willing to die so that you may live.
You will never be satisfied with where you are at with God, when you are pleasing men. Yet when you please God, you won’t care what men think about you.
Do All Men Lust; Temptation
To be tempted is not sin, yet it is not freedom from sin, until the temptation (test) is past by the use of purity. When a man is tempted he is still in the clutches of being a youth. He must flee youthful lusts, so he can do the things of the spirit. 2 Timothy 2:22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
To fight lust is one thing, to have liberty in Christ is another. There will be a day, if you worship God, pray and do all the things that the Lord shares with you to do and with a little assistance from those who don’t lust.
You will be free from lusting. I will put it simply, I don’t think about lusting any more, it’s not appealing to my inner-man. Due to the fact that I worked hard by faith for my freedom, in Christ through Christ. Christ died for my sins, and I died to my sins through Christ. Therefore, I am no longer ruled by the lust of the flesh, but by the spirit.”
Liberty in Christ is not free, yet to be pure in Christ, one becomes less to become more. To have less, is to have more of Christ, to be content is the mark of a holy man. And to rest in Christ, when the world is upside down with perversion is the mark of a complete (perfect) man of God. Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Do all men lust? “No”
Take this vision to God through prayer, Instead of asking, “Do all men lust?” See God using you, being free from lusting. Be bold in the spirit, when the heathens ask, “Do all men lust?” And even stand upon purity when the most sexually defiled people ask, “Do all men lust?” For they all think that all men lust, for a filthy mind can only produce filthy things. Titus 1:15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
Be diligent, and don’t be of the thought, do all men lust, “yes.” For that one thought will sink any vessel that desires purity, holiness and Godly love. Be strong and run the good race and be full of courage. Walk in the spirit my friend. Galatians 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
Then even the lies; of all men do lust, will not persuade you, because you will be at liberty with Christ.
For God does not put such evil thoughts in the minds of men only men do. So know this, “Do all men lust, no. I don’t. And you don’t have to either! Amen.
