Lust BeYeThereforePerfect_pic.jpg

"Ye have heard that
it was said by them of old time,
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
But I say unto you, That
WHOSOEVER LOOKETH ON A WOMAN
TO LUST AFTER HER
HATH COMMITTED ADULTERY WITH HER
ALREADY IN HIS HEART."

--- [Matthew 5: 27-28 - Bible]


"And verily I say unto you,
as I have said before,
HE THAT LOOKETH ON A WOMAN
TO LUST AFTER HER,
OR IF ANY SHALL COMMIT
ADULTERY IN THEIR HEARTS,
THEY SHALL NOT HAVE THE SPIRIT,
BUT SHALL DENY THE FAITH

and shall fear." --- [D&C 63: 16]


"LUST NOT AFTER HER BEAUTY
IN THINE HEART
;

neither let her take thee with her eyelids."

{Indeed, you got to watch those eyelids! *smile"}

"For by means of a whorish woman
is a man brought to a piece of bread:
and the adulteress will hunt
for the precious life."

"Can a man take fire in his bosom,
and his clothes not be burned?
Can one go upon hot coals,
and his feet not be burned?"

"SO HE THAT GOETH IN
TO HIS NEIGHBOR'S WIFE;
WHOSOEVER TOUCHETH HER
SHALL NOT BE INNOCENT."

--- [Proverbs 6: 25-29 - Bible]


"BUT WHOSO COMMITETH
ADULTERY WITH A WOMAN
LACKETH UNDERSTANDING:
HE THAT DOETH IT
DESTROYETH HIS OWN SOUL."

--- [Proverbs 6: 32 - Bible]

{Purity is perhaps the most
important principle of all!
And although purity involves several things,
including not judging people unrighteously,
the biggest part of purity is
having no lust in you.
And although lust can be after many things,
such as the lust of money,
or the lust of power,
the biggest and most
difficult lust to break
is sexual lust.}


"HE THAT DOETH IT
DESTROYETH HIS OWN SOUL."


{And although there are dozens
and perhaps hundreds of ways
sexual lust and sexual sins
can manifest, the second greatest of these
is adultery. The greatest is rape.}



"23 AND HE THAT LOOKETH UPON A WOMAN
TO LUST AFTER HER
SHALL DENY THE FAITH;
AND SHALL NOT HAVE THE SPIRIT;

and if he repents not he shall be cast out."

"24 Thou shalt not commit adultery;
and he that committeth adultery,
and repenteth not, shall be cast out."

"25 But he that has committed adultery
and repents with all his heart,
and forsaketh it, and
DOETH IT NO MORE,
thou shalt forgive;"

"26 But if he doeth it again,
he shall not be forgiven,
but shall be cast out." --- [D&C 42: 23-26]


"24 Wherefore God also gave them
up to uncleanness through
the lusts of their own hearts,
TO DISHONOR THEIR OWN BODIES
between themselves; "

"25 Who changed the truth of God
into a lie, AND WORSHIPPED THE CREATURE
MORE THAN THE CREATOR,

who is blessed for ever. Amen."

{Let's get specific here!
Let's apply the concept several ways
and not beat around the bush:}


AND WORSHIPPED SEX
MORE THAN THE CREATOR,


AND WORSHIPPED WOMEN'S BODIES
MORE THAN THE CREATOR,


AND WORSHIPPED MEN'S BODIES
MORE THAN THE CREATOR,


AND WORSHIPPED PORNOGRAPHY
MORE THAN THE CREATOR,


{Get the idea. Many of us humans are
into unrighteous and unauthorized sexuality.
SEX IS NOT SINFUL; IT IS SACRED.
SEX IS AUTHORIZED BY GOD,
BUT ONLY IN MARRIAGE.
AND THAT AUTHORIZED MARRIAGE IS ONLY
BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN
!

Just because two women
marry each other does not justify
their relationship. Just because two men
marry each other does not justify homosexuality.
Just because an unrighteous country
such as The United States of America
legalizes Gay Marriage / Lesbian Marriage,
does not mean God has changed His Laws
concerning it! The acts of men,
the likes of men, the jurisdictions
and legalizations of men
do not sway God to say,
"Ok. Because the U.S. Supreme Court
ruled that Gay Marriage is now legal,
I too will no longer consider
homosexuality a sin, but only if
the man marries the man; and
the woman marries the woman ..."}



"26 For this cause
God gave them up unto vile affections:
FOR EVEN THEIR WOMEN DID CHANGE
THE NATURAL USE INTO THAT WHICH IS
AGAINST NATURE;"


"27 AND LIKEWISE ALSO THE MEN,
LEAVING THE NATURAL USE OF THE WOMAN,
BURNED IN THEIR LUST ONE TOWARD ANOTHER;
MEN WITH MEN WORKING THAT WHICH IS
UNSEEMLY,

and receiving in themselves that recompence
of their error which was meet."

"28 And even as they did not
like to retain God in their knowledge,
God gave them over to a reprobate mind,
to do those things which are not convenient;"

"29 Being filled with all unrighteousness,
FORNICATION, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness;
full of envy, murder, debate, deceit,
malignity, whisperers,"

"30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful,
proud, boasters, inventors of evil things,
disobedient to parents,"

"31 Without understanding,
covenant breakers,
WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION,
implacable, unmerciful:"

"32 Who knowing the judgement of God,
that THEY WHICH COMMIT SUCH THINGS
ARE WORTHY OF DEATH
,
not only do the same,
but have pleasure in them that
do them."
--- [Romans 1: 24-32 - Bible]


"Now these things
were our examples, to the intent WE SHOULD NOT LUST
AFTER EVIL THINGS
,
as they also lusted."
--- [1st Corinthians 10: 6 - Bible]


"ABSTAIN FROM
ALL APPEARANCE OF EVIL."

--- [1st Thessalonians 5: 22 - Bible]


"This I say then,
WALK IN THE SPIRIT, AND YE SHALL
NOT FULFILL THE LUST OF THE FLESH.


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."

--- [Galatians 5: 16-17 - Bible]


"19 NOW THE WORKS OF THE FLESH
are manifest, which ARE THESE:
ADULTERY, FORNICATION, UNCLEANNESS,
LASCIVIOUSNESS,"


"20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred,
variance, emulations, wrath,
strife, seditions, heresies,"

"21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness,
revellings, and such:
of the which I tell you before,
as I have also told you in time past, that
THEY WHICH DO SUCH THINGS
SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD."

--- [Galatians 5: 19-21 - Bible]


"AND THEY THAT ARE CHRIST'S HAVE
CRUCIFIED THE FLESH WITH THE
AFFECTIONS AND LUSTS."

--- [Galatians 5: 24 - Bible]


"Woe unto him that giveth
his neighbor drink,
that putteth his bottle to him,
and makest him drunken also,
THAT THOU MAYEST LOOK
ON THEIR NAKEDNESS!"

--- [Habakkuk 2: 15 - Bible]


"HAVING EYES FULL OF ADULTERY,
AND THAT CANNOT CEASE FROM SIN;

beguiling unstable souls:
a heart they have exercised with
covetous practices; cursed children."
--- [2nd Peter 2: 14 - Bible]


"22 THE LIGHT OF THE BODY IS THE EYE;
if therefore thine eye be single,
thy whole body shall be full of light."


{Although lust conceives in our thoughts,
the biggest influence on such lust
conceiving is SEEING THINGS
such as David seeing Bathsheba bathing!
If David had not saw Bathsheba,
perhaps David would still be an heir
of eternal life? Likewise, the biggest influence
for us to fill with lust are things
like seeing sexy women (or men)
in thong bikinis, or with their dress
blowing up in the wind,
or walking by an open window
where a woman just got out of the shower, etc.
And/or watching movies,
looking at magazines,
researching an innocent picture in
Google Search and unexpectedly
there is a picture of a naked woman
or of a couple having sex.
Our world now days has more
visual temptation than at
any other time in the world!
And the greatest way to fight
the myriad temptations that can
come at us everyday
is to control our EYES.
Our EYES are indeed
the lifeblood of our spirits!
More than any other factor
what we look at, what we watch,
what we read, builds or destroys
our purity.}



"23 But if thine eye be evil,
thy whole body shall be full of darkness.
If therefore the light that is in thee
be darkness, how great is that darkness!"

"24 NO MAN CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS:
for either he will hate the one,
and love the other;
or else he will hold to the one,
and despise the other.
Ye cannot serve God and mammon."
--- [Matthew 6: 22-24 - Bible]


{Again, let's get specific here:}

NO MAN CAN SERVE
SERIAL FORNICATION AND THE LORD


NO MAN CAN SERVE
SERIAL ADULTERY AND THE LORD


NO MAN CAN SERVE
HOMOSEXUALITY AND THE LORD


NO MAN CAN SERVE
PORNOGRAPHY AND THE LORD


{And let's get specific for women, too:}

NO WOMAN CAN SERVE
LESBIANISM AND THE LORD


{And let's remember the commandment
and the will of God:}


NEVERTHELESS,
NEITHER IS THE MAN WITHOUT THE WOMAN,
NEITHER THE WOMAN WITHOUT THE MAN,

IN THE LORD."
--- [1st Corinthians 11: 11 - Bible]

{And thus let's get specific for
unrighteous and wicked marriages,
Gay Marriage and Lesbian Marriage, too:}


NO MAN WHO MARRIES ANOTHER MAN
CAN SERVE GAY MARRIAGE AND THE LORD


NO WOMAN WHO MARRIES ANOTHER WOMAN
CAN SERVE LESBIAN MARRIAGE AND THE LORD


{And let's not forget self-sexuality also.
Although the scriptures do not speak out directly
against pornography and sexual movies
and magazines and the internet,
because such things did not exist
when the bulk of the standard works were written,
these things are spoken out against
and written about by
the modern apostles and prophets of
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.}


{Yet pornography and other sexy movies
and pictures have a companion that
goes with them probably 99% of the time.
That companion is called Masturbation.
I myself call it Visual Masturbation
because it so often is done with
pornography, movies and magazines,
and especially with the internet:
all of which are visual.
Although the scriptures
(the standard works of the four books
of scripture at least)
do not mention Visual Masturbation,
The Bible does indirectly mention
Masturbation. To the best of my knowledge,
this is the only scripture which
preaches against the sin of
Masturbation:}


"WOE TO THEM THAT devise iniquity,
and WORK EVIL UPON THEIR BEDS!
when the morning is light, they practise it,
because it is IN THE POWER OF THEIR HAND."

--- [Micah 2: 1 - Bible]


{So if you wish to be pure
and draw nigh unto God and have
His Holy Ghost as your constant companion,
refrain from any sexuality,
even self-sexuality,
outside the bounds of marriage.
And obey the council of The Lord:}



"LET YOUR LOINS BE GIRDED ABOUT,
AND YOUR LIGHTS BURNING;"

--- [Luke 12 : 34 - Bible]


"4 And again, verily I say unto you,
the coming of The Lord draweth nigh,
and it overtaketh the world
as a thief in the night."

"5 THEREFORE, GIRD UP YOUR LOINS
THAT YOU MAY BE THE CHILDREN OF LIGHT
,

and that day shall not
overtake you as a thief." --- [D&C 106: 4-5]


"15 Wherefore, lift up your hearts and rejoice,
AND GIRD UP YOUR LOINS,
AND TAKE UPON YOU THE WHOLE ARMOR,

that ye may be able to withstand
the evil day, having done all,
that ye may be able to stand."

"16 Stand, therefore, HAVING YOUR LOINS
GIRT ABOUT WITH TRUTH
,
having on the breastplate of righteousness,
and your feet shod with
the preparation of the gospel of peace,
which I have sent mine angels
to commit unto you."
--- [D&C 27: 15-16]


"8 But the day soon cometh
that ye shall see me, and know that I am;
for the veil of darkness shall soon be rent,
AND HE THAT IS NOT PURIFIED
SHALL NOT ABIDE THE DAY
."


"9 WHEREFORE, GIRD UP YOU LOINS
AND BE PREPARED
.

Behold, the kingdom is yours,
and the enemy shall not overcome."

"10 Verily I say unto you,
YE ARE CLEAN, but not all;
AND THERE IS NONE ELSE
WITH WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED
;
"
--- [D&C 38: 8-10]


"WHEREFORE, GIRD UP YOUR LOINS
LEST YE BE FOUND AMONG THE WICKED."

--- [D&C 43: 19]


"AND THAT EVERY MAN SHOULD TAKE
righteousness in his hands and
FAITHFULNESS UPON HIS LOINS,

and lift a warning voice unto
the inhabitants of the earth;
and declare both by word and by flight
that desolation shall come upon the wicked."
--- [D&C 63: 37]


"And it shall be more tolerable
for the heathen in the day of judgment,
than for that house; therefore,
GIRD UP YOUR LOINS AND BE FAITHFUL,
and ye shall overcome all things,
and be lifted up at the last day. Even so. Amen." --- [D&C 75: 22]


{And I bear testimony of the Lord's will
that you really cannot be a faithful
member of the Church without}

"GIRDING UP YOUR LOINS To BE FAITHFUL,"
{which means no sexuality
outside of marriage -
IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. AMEN."
- (Elder Erving Axel Lambert - 2/9/2017}
