FORTIFICATION against fornication

 

Psalm 18:2

King James Version

2 The Lord is my rock, 

and my fortress, 

and my deliverer; 

my God, 

my strength, 

in whom I will trust; 

my buckler, 

and the horn of my salvation, 

and my high tower.


How does one fight fornication?

The HOLY SPIRIT of GOD led me to these verses, to help us become aware, fight, conquer, and guard against fornication:

BECOME aware of the sin of fornication.

1 Corinthians 6:18

King James Version

18 Flee fornication. 

Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; 

but he that committeth fornication 

sinneth against his own body.


KNOW the enemy.

Ephesians 6:12

King James Version

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, 

but against principalities, 

against powers, 

against the rulers of the darkness of this world, 

against spiritual wickedness in high places.


SEEK God.

Jeremiah 29:13

King James Version

13 And ye shall seek me, 

and find me, 

when ye shall search for me 

with all your heart.


BECOME born again.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, 

I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


BELIEVE in Jesus.

John 14:1

King James Version

14 Let not your heart be troubled: 

ye believe in God, 

believe also in me.


LET the Holy Spirit guide you.

John 16:13

King James Version

13 Howbeit when he, 

the Spirit of truth,

 is come, he will guide you into all truth

for he shall not speak of himself; 

but whatsoever he shall hear, 

that shall he speak: 

and he will shew you things to come.


ACKNOWLEDGE the owner of our bodies.

1 Corinthians 6:13

King James Version

13 Meats for the belly, 

and the belly for meats: 

but God shall destroy both it and them. 

Now the body is not for fornication, 

but for the Lord; 

and the Lord for the body.


RESPECT the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

King James Version

19 What? 

know ye not that your body 

is the temple of the Holy Ghost 

which is in you, 

which ye have of God, 

and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: 

therefore glorify God in your body, 

and in your spirit, 

which are God's.


WALK in the Spirit.

Galatians 5:16-17

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, 

and the Spirit against the flesh: 

and these are contrary the one to the other:

 so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.


WALK in the Lord's Light.

1 John 1:7

King James Version

7 But if we walk in the light, 

as he is in the light, 

we have fellowship one with another, 

and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son 

cleanseth us from all sin.


BE aware of the urgency of the times.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

King James Version

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven 

with a shout, 

with the voice of the archangel, 

and with the trump of God: 

and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain 

shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, 

to meet the Lord in the air: 

and so shall we ever be with the Lord.


PUT on the whole armor of God.

Ephesians 6:13-18

King James Version

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God

that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, 

and having done all, 

to stand.

14 Stand therefore, 

having your loins girt about with truth

and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod 

with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, 

taking the shield of faith

wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation

and the sword of the Spirit

which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, 

and watching thereunto with all perseverance 

and supplication for all saints;


BE perfect, as God is.

Matthew 5:48

King James Version

48 Be ye therefore perfect, 

even as your Father 

which is in heaven is perfect.


Now that we know all these defense measures from Scripture, we must put them to good use

Awareness is the beginning.

Implementation is the key.

Constant vigilance is a must.

1 Peter 1:13-14

King James Version

13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, 

be sober, 

and hope to the end for the grace 

that is to be brought unto you 

at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

14 As obedient children, 

not fashioning yourselves 

according to the former lusts 

in your ignorance:
