The Spirit of Adultery
The Lord began to deal with me a while back on spiritual adultery and the love relationship between Christ and His Bride, the Church.
Worshipping anything other than God is an idol and can be considered spiritual adultery.
It is God’s desire that we dwell as one with Him. He created us for his Glory. We are the vessels that His glory will fill. His heart so longs for a willing vessel, a vessel of honor that he can pour himself into. He so longs to love you.
“You are His glory…for His glory lies within you..”
Loving you is easy for God because he loves unconditionally. No matter what you have done or will do he loves you anyway. He knows what you are going to do before you do it.
I remember once the spirit spoke to me, “I love you anyway”. Even when I could not love myself, Jesus takes the time to tell me, “I love you anyway”. That was very precious to me. He loves you anyway!
His love goes beyond any love we have felt or known in this world. There are no conditions. So why do we run to everything else but Him? Why do we commit this sin of Spiritual Adultery daily? I have been so guilty of this sin in my Life, it is so easy to do.
The Lord began to show me how the busyness of Life is a distraction to keep me out of His presence. He led me to simplify my life and to remove as much baggage as I possibly could. Hebrews 12:1
Things that were stealing my time were keeping me out of His Presence, even good things. He pulled me out of the world and the work place and had me sit still for a couple of years and just seek Him.
Of course my flesh did not want to give up the income but he said, “Have faith it will come back to and through your children”. I knew he was not speaking of money but an eternal Spiritual Blessing passed down to my children. I had to be willing to give up the income not expecting anything because there could be nothing in it for the flesh, my motives had to be pure.
He had me reading in the book of Proverbs most of this time. He began to show me how my flesh needed to die that his glory could dwell in me.
And the story goes on and continues even to this day. It is daily dying to the flesh. ·
1 Corinthians 15:31
The ability and the strength to carry out a task is empowered by the spirit within. This spirit can be the Spirit of God, (the Holy Spirit) or the spirit of man (the flesh).
We have heard it said, “My heart is just not in it”. When it feels as though our heart is just not in it, there is no anointing to carry out a task. No drive, no passion and no fulfillment within. Just as one will hunger for food, so does the soul hunger to be filled with the desires of the flesh and the Spirit desires to be filled with the will of God.
Most can not recognize the purpose of this hunger. Matthew 5:6
We are fueled by our spirit and this is what keeps us going. Without a vision the people perish. Many have fallen into deep depression when God removes the desires of the flesh. God will withdraw our desires of the flesh in order that we may find a much deeper truth in Life, The Will of God.
This transition is a very lonely and empty place. It is a place I have been for a while now.
In this place although we hunger, nothing really taste good. Nothing seems to make us Happy. The joy we once found in doing things is no longer there. So we began to search for something Real, something to fill the void and the emptiness within. This place is a place called death; I call it Gethsemane, then Calvary. It is a very uncomfortable place but the end result is Victory.
The Lord is calling His Bride by Name and calling the church to come and be with him. But this world is filled with many other voices within crying, “come lay with me.” The Church has become an unfaithful Bride.
Sadly to say this is what most of us do, run after other Gods and we do not even realize we do it. I know that I did just this but as time has gone by I have felt the Lord stripping me of one lover in my Life at a time as I was a very unfaithful Bride to Him. My life at one time was filled with nothing but me. But as I drew closer to Him I began to feel the freedom of each binding spirit leaving me and the Spirit of God within me growing to New levels in Him. This “spirit of adultery” controlled my life beyond what seemed to be out of my control. At first I did not recognize it but when God began to reveal to me this truth, I began to pray for His Will in My Life and soon my desires began to change. My desire to know him more increased and my desires for the things of the world decreased.
For if we delight ourselves in the Lord he will give us the desires of our Heart because they are actually His Heart. Psalm 37:4
I have cried unto the Lord, Cleanse my hands and cleanse my heart. Put within me a New Spirit for I have seen the condition of my heart and I know of my sin. Isaiah 6:5
As a prostitute stands on the corner waiting for her next victim, my flesh was drawn in. Never content but going from one thing to the next trying to feed a hunger within. Proverbs 7
The world took its share in filling this hunger with all the entertainment it has to offer. We go from one project to another and busyness fills our time. My biggest weakness was working. That probably does not seem like a bad thing to you but it can be if put before God. Praise the Lord I feel deliverance in this area taking place now. Oh how it calls my name, work, work, work, all the time, never no time for rest. My flesh always had to be doing something and could never be still and I needed to be still and know that he was God. Psalm 46:10
But work is not filling the void any longer as it once did. It does not taste as good as it once did! This is something I can rejoice about because it was one of the biggest strongholds I battled. And though I felt deep down that it probably had a hold on me I could not see it as clearly as I do now so I continued to pray for deliverance and God’s Will in my life and that nothing would come before Him. I began to experience deliverance in this area a little but now I feel a breakthrough in this area. Doing nothing is starting to feel pretty good now.
My spirit is so tired as I enter into this rest. It actually feels very good here in this place, though I feel a fear hovering over me and I hear its voice telling me that everything is going to fall apart if I don’t get up and do something. I ask myself this question, was I the one holding it all together anyway? Isn’t that God’s job? Hebrews 4:11
The transition from being controlled by flesh to spirit is not an easy one. There is definitely a spiritual battle you will have to fight. The most subtle things can keep us from entering into his Presence. I mean after all isn’t everyone suppose to work? Aren’t we taught that this is what we are supposed to do? Well yes and no could answer that question. All things in balance and in alignment with God’s spirit. Proverbs 11:1
We all have our strongholds that we have to battle. First we must realize that they are strongholds. But do not be deceived, sin is anything we put before God. These things are idols in our lives. Exodus 20:3
Jesus is so faithful to lead us into all truth if we seek his face and ask him to humble our hearts.
He will put within us a new heart that desires to be a faithful Bride only unto Him. Ezekiel 36:26
