Immoral conduct affected the early church and God’s miracle stopped happening. The people deviated from the worship of the living God and substituted it for conduct that God disapproved.
Bible detests immoral conducts: Apostle James reproved the early church as stated,
“Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures” (James 4:1-3).
Lesson Against Immoral Conduct
A Christian must live a principled lifestyle to enjoy God’s benefits. Christians must prioritize holiness and yield to the leadership of the Holy Spirit so that we can prosper.
Christians are required to desist from immoral conduct that violates God’s requirement of holiness.
Immoral conducts are detestable to God, believers must endeavor to avoid it to fully satisfy God!
A believer who intends to enjoy God’s blessing must serve God in Spirit. He must not be a hypocrite who offers fake services with the secret intention of receiving God’s benefits.
Anyone who lives in sin must repent and live a pure life. God cannot be deceived, he will only reward those who refused to succumb to the works of the flesh but serve him in Spirit and in truth (John 4:24).
I also pray that you please help the brethren to operate in love and submit to the leadership of your Holy Spirit so that your name can be glorified. Please keep the church pure to remain fit for the second coming of your Son Jesus Christ. For in the name of Jesus Christ I have made my requests. Amen.
“Then Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab; but they said [defiantly], “We will not come up. Is it a small thing that you have brought us up out of a land [of plenty] flowing with milk and honey to kill us in the wilderness, but you would also lord it over us?
Indeed, you have not brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Will you gouge out the eyes of these men? We will not come up!” (Numbers 16:12-14 AMP)
The term “Daughters of Zion” was used on many occasions to refer to the beauty and pride of Israel; however, in some instances, God down tune importance of “Daughters of Zion” into a piece of entity worthy of severe punishment due to Israelites’ sins.
One of the instances is highlighted, “Moreover the Lord says: “Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, And walk with outstretched necks And wanton eyes, Walking and mincing as they go, Making a jingling with their feet, Therefore the Lord will strike with a scab The crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, And the Lord will uncover their secret parts” (Isaiah 3:16-17).
Lesson on God frowns at Sin and embraces Holiness
God will not turn a blind eye on any Christian who goes against His will.
“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: 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 recompense of their error which was meet.
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” (Romans 1:26-28 KJV).
In addition, immoral activities such as fornication and adultery compromise God’s standard of holiness, and Christian must not engage in them.
Understand Christianity in a Simple Language
A Christian must not entertain whatever practices contradict bible standards.
Ungodly practices are sinful and punishable by God.
Believers must reject any practice that God has rejected!
Holiness has no substitute with God
