Dreams and Sex

March 26, 2014 1 comment

I great you all in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord and savior. Today I blog about sex dreams and the part they play in sexual sin. It was at around 3am, on 2 nights, the 24th and 25th Mar 2014, when I got very vivid sexual dreams, that could be equated to a sexual experience. The exaggerated familiarity of some of the faces in the dreams and the extreme pulled me to do what I resolved not do. The intensity and disgust left within my spirit left a bitter taste in my mouth. The dream was not just sex with a woman, but was borderline weird fetish-like to nightmare. This thing defiling me was definitely not of this world. I remember feeling that this was my sister, though I looked at her and she looked nothing like it. “A familiar spirit”. The setting was on the bed that I grew up on at my parents place. When I wake up I sensed the peril that lied before me. Nothing that I can explain I have seen or experience. Therefore, my conclusion was that the devil simply wanted to defiled my spirit so that I can fall to my previous devices – using malevolent forces because he knew I was strong in the Holy Spirit against sexual temptation in the physical realm. I was so disturbed that I couldn’t go to work the last day.Image

I am encouraged by the word in Deut 28:7 knowing the devil is a defeated foe.

(Deut 28:7 The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.)

It is funny how in this life, battles won elsewhere can easily be lost on other grounds.The past few weeks have been filled with battle and to the glory of God, victory over sexual temptation. An argument may be used that I might exposed myself to sensuality  thus this experience. On the contrary I have been consistently proactively engaging the battle plan;

  • eyes- bouncing my eyes from all lustful looks,
  • mind – using the word as a sword and my faith as a shield
  • heart – fighting for my relationship with God, marriage, child(ren) and future

I did a bit of study on this a while back and I came across a demon called “succubus”. This is a female demon believed to have sexual intercourse with sleeping men. I have no reference of this in the bible, but I know that the bible doesn’t answer all questions we might have. So, upon waking up that day, I prayed through the power of the Holy Spirit and by the shed blood of Jesus on the cross against the spirit of succubus. The demon has no power over me anymore and even if it comes back, I will keep fighting it. James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Many people do not know this, but what happens in the spiritual realm manifests in the physical realm. To put it to context, the dreams that I had were meant to create a feeling of sinful sexual desire, guilt and self condemnation; so that I resolve to get satisfaction from anything other than my wife.  Some men won’t really see the sense in this argument, but the motive of this is to drive you to sexual immorality. The spirit realm work very differently from the physical one.

I give glory to God because I can reach out to Him, through his Son Jesus in prayer and to a group of prayer warriors at that time. In summary;

  1. I prayed against spirit of succubus and cancelled every evil effect of the dreams in Jesus name,
  2. I sent a distress call to my G7 group, a sexual accountability group for prayer
  3. I talked to my wife who also prayed with me about it
  4. My defenses went on an all time high. I was encouraging myself with scripture constantly, just like Jesus fought temptation against the devil with scripture.

If you are or have gone through this, the solution is simple,

1. Surrender to God , know the truth

  •  1 John 1:6  If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth (about Jesus).
  • 2 Thessalonians 2:10  and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth (about Jesus) and so be saved.
  • 2 Thessalonians 2:13  But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth.

2. Against the devil play offense, but against sexual sin play defense, 

  • “Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.” 1 Cor 6:18

Dealing with Lust and burdening Sexual thoughts

February 28, 2011 5 comments

Hi good people,

I haven’t blogged in quite sometime. February has been a tough month for me spiritually. It has been one of the lowest in a long time. I thank God for showing me that no man can come up with solutions to spiritual problems; It all belongs to Him. As I went through an e-Book “A GUY’S GUIDE TO MARRYING WELL” this month, I came a cross a rather profound statement:-

“From the moment a boy reaches puberty
until the day he is lowered into the ground,
Every man will struggle with lust.”

This caught my eye and I could not get it off my mind. It was a very discouraging but challenging statement. There is one thing you have to know as an addict or as a recovering sexual addict, sexual feelings will always be there. Sexual feelings are natural, meant for good and controllable, but lust is a state of mind that leads to sin and has to be dealt with. I went for a counselling session this Sunday and was reminded of some basics;

The Key to beat lust (just like any other sin) is to Surrender all those lustful thoughts to God. Let God through the Holy spirit deal with them for you. It’s not by strength nor might but by the spirit of God. When you get these thoughts, your body stops edifying God and worships the things of this world. So remember, understand your addiction before solving it. I recommend the mini-course on Candeo (www.candeocan.com). Look for the root cause and try to uproot it from there. For now;

  1. Dispose off all the pornographic material you might have. Try get positive material and invest time to replace the
  2. Kill communication to that girl or thing that drags you down. You have to decided, resolve to STOP today. I stopped so you can.
  3. Plan a few days (2-3) to go on a purity journey even while at work or school; meditation in the word, prayer and fasting are advisable.
  4. Make sure you have someone to walk with you through the tough journey, an accountability partner. Keeping it bundled up inside won’t help you at all. Confess your sins to each other and you will be saved. If you don’t have someone, contact an i-Stopped counsellor for help. Don’t suffer alone!
  5. Remember to be accountable to yourself by constantly updating the person you choose to help you through this. Make sure you give him/her the key indicators of when you feel low and when you have fallen.
  6. Live a life or purity through constant prayer for mercy and self control from the Holy Spirit. We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

I got an encouraging word this morning from a friend, In your heart set apart Chist as Lord. 1 Peter 3:15. I can tell you from experience that you can do it. Trust in the Lord and don’t lean on your own understanding or solution. The Holy Spirit will help you, will work in you and will bring you to maturity in Christ.
