15 Scriptures On Sexual Immorality Impact


The Holy Scriptures made it clear that fornication, adultery and all forms of sexual immorality and perversion are grave sin before God. Not only are they unrighteousness before God almighty, they are also sin against the body. Which means that they open the door for all forms of spiritual and physical attack on the body by the devil and his agents. Sexual immorality is the source of many afflictions of man such as sickness, stagnation, limitations, poverty, depression, rejection, spiritual and physical death, etc.

Sexual Immorality is a Curse Activator According to the Scriptures

The Scripture says that we are the temple of God; this is because the Holy Spirit dwells in those who have received Jesus Christ. So polluting the your body with sexual immorality is the same thing as defiling the temple of God. And God said that anyone that defiles His temple that He will destroy, [1 Corinthians 3: 16-17]. Therefore sexual immorality is a curse activator; it attracts the curse of God which gives the devil the legal right to afflict a soul.

Man in Three Dimensions

When you defile the temple of God with sexual immorality, all hell are let loose to work against you without God’s intervention. This allows for demon possession and satanic oppression. This is because the human man body is designed spiritually as the temple of God. In other words, God designed human body to be a vessel that can shelter a spirit. Man is a spirit that has a soul and lives in a body (man in three dimensions). And because man is a spirit that has a body, he can as well accommodate other higher spirits in his Body. This is what makes man a temple.

But because God is a Holy Spirit, He only uses temples that are consecrated and sanctified. He only dwells in human bodies that have been washed with the Word of God and sanctified by the Blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ. But on the contrary, the devil dwells in polluted temples. He uses human bodies that are garnished with sin and all forms of sexual immorality. So, this is where the issue lies. If you body is holy through consecration and obedience to the Word of God (righteous living), God will dwell in your body as a temple of the Holy Spirit. And you will experience divine guidance and protection.

With the devil, it is not the case; he strives in filth and pollution of the body. He can not dwell in a holy atmosphere, neither can he live in a consecrated body. So when you pollute your body with sexual immorality, it is an express invitation to the devil who is the embodiment of everything evil to come in and dwell in your body. And this is very dangerous situation for your soul and your body. The devil has nothing good to offer, any body he possesses, destruction is left on his wake.

This is the reason why we should embrace the Word of God and purge our bodies from all filthiness and youthful lusts; as the scriptures say in 2 Timothy 2: 21-22. So that our bodies can be fit for God to dwell and use for every good work. The temple of the body must be occupied, either by the Holy Spirit of God or the evil spirit of the devil. There is no vacuum in this aspect; that is why it is of utmost importance that we live a consecrated life and a life free of sexual immorality, so that our temple will suitable for the Holy Spirit to inhabit and help us in all spiritual and life matters.
