    A Demonically Induced Form of Sexual Addiction

    The question is: Homosexuality...are we made that way or is there another reason. The answer may surprise you...yes and no. Simply speaking, the real answer is a bit complicated although very simple. If you do not believe in God or angels or devils/demons, the answer becomes very complicated. But if you DO believe in God and believe angels and demons (fallen angels) exist, then the answer becomes very simple. The route I will take for explanation will be the spiritual or Christian perspective of which many professing Christians may still find difficult to accept, especially those who do not acknowledge the spirit world exists and has significant influences on the natural world in regards to mankind.

    The bible teaches us that God is the creator of all things and being Spirit Himself, has created angels who were created to serve Him and man which He later created. Of these angels, the bible speaks of one called Lucifer. This angel was a cherubim in charge of the heavenly choir or worship to God. He saw his own beauty and became lifted up in pride (Ezekiel 28:17). As a result of this pride, he rebelled against God (Isaiah 14:12-14). Many other angels sided with him in his rebellion and a war in heaven ensued. According to Jesus, this angel, now called Satan (literally - adversary), was cast down to earth along with one third of the angels of heaven who sided with him in his rebellion against God. It has been Satan's stated purpose to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10) all the works of God's hand in order to establish himself as the ultimate ruler of heaven and earth. His strategy was to turn God's crown of creation, man, against God Himself. If he could not get man to worship himself, he would destroy man. Ultimately, he cared nothing for mankind except to use them as a tool to defeat God's purposes.

    But what does all this have to do with homosexuality? Be patient, I am getting to that. The backdrop for this must be laid first in order to understand the continuing battle between God and Satan for the soul of mankind. As in a chess match, man is represented by the pawns and other chess pieces in this game called life and the strategies involved. The stakes are extremely high. On the one side, Satan desires to rule heaven and earth, at the expense of all mankind. Since we are creations of God, made in His image, Satan's only interest in us is to use us for his own gain. We are completely expendable for Satan cares only for himself. On the other side of this 'chess match', the stakes are also very high. God did not create us to leave us but so that we would choose to love Him by receiving His love for us. It has been His stated purpose that we should have life and have it more abundantly...that we would be reconciled back to Him and resume our fellowship with Him.

    This chess match has a uniqueness all its own where the pieces on the board are not moved by either God or Satan but they move according to their own choice. That means, the only way either one wins is by influencing the individual pieces to move according to each player's desires. God has set strict rules of this game that prevents either opponent from gaining an advantage over the other one through complete control of that piece's will. Only through influence can each opponent get their pieces to move unless that piece gives the one influencing him/her permission to intervene directly. So, if a man/woman believes in God and invites God to act/intervene on their behalf, God will do so because that man/woman gave Him permission to do so. The same applies to the Adversary. If the man or woman either knowingly or unknowingly gives the adversary permission to act/intervene in their lives, then the man or woman will be directly affected because of this permission. This "permission" is called "faith". A person can have faith in God or the devil; the truth or the lie with the truth representing God and the lie representing the adversary.

    In Genesis, we see the board being set. The backdrop is the heavens and the earth and everything in them. As a last step, man is created and placed in the ideal location, the garden of Eden with only one stipulation or law. He must not eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God applied HIS influence with this stipulation and now Satan, the serpent attempts to influence them with his words. Satan succeeds! He was able to convince the woman that God was short changing her and trying to keep something of value away from them. Where she would not even look upon this fruit before, she now took a good look and desire for this fruit grew within her till she stretched out her hand and ate. Immediately, she gave to her mate to eat and so he ate it too, seeing no adverse reaction in her. Satan won the first round. But this would turn out to be just the first in many many rounds to take place throughout history. The strategies were clearly established from the beginning. God sought out those who would believe in Him and then teach them His ways or commandments of how to love each other with a righteous love. Satan's strategy was to play upon the selfish nature of man and lure man through his physical, carnal nature using the promise of pleasures and power.

    Satan nearly won the game when he was able to turn virtually the entire world against God with the exception of 8 souls. God even became sorry He had made man and was intent on destroying all men except that He still had 8 souls who believed in Him. So He decided to start the game over, "apparently" conceding the first round loss to Satan.

    The board was cleared and the game was started again but new rules had to be put in place because Satan cheated the first time by allowing his demons to have intercourse with mankind creating a race of giants. This went against the initial rules of noninterference. So in this new world, he would no longer be allowed to let his angels have intercourse with man. Only through deception and enticement would he be allowed to influence mankind.

    In this new round, the second round between God and His adversary, Satan, the game began when Noah and his family emerged from the ark and began to live on the earth again. Satan wasted no time in influencing these souls, especially that one who reported the indiscretions of his own father to his brothers. As a result, a curse was laid on that devious son and his generations after him. The game was on.

    God is patient and waited for a man in whom he saw a divine spark. He approached this one and convinced him to follow Him. At the time God found Abram, it seemed that Satan was going to win this round as easily as he had won the first round. He had deceived the whole world to worship idols and not God but as mentioned before, God exercised much patience and did not give up His eternal plan, hidden away from the eyes and understanding of His opponent. In Abram, God set in motion His master plan.

    Abram or Abraham as he was later renamed by God, turned out to be a formidable foe to Satan. He could not influence him so he sought to divide his family by enticing Abram's nephew by causing distress to come between their shepherds. Satan was able to draw Lot away from Abram towards a city that was already under his control. His goal was to draw Lot away from righteousness and defile him with the vile lifestyles of the cities of the plain, Sodom and Gomorrah. In these cities, lawlessness abounded as men did what pleased themselves. No act was withheld. They had given themselves over to complete corruption by turning away from the natural use of the body to an unnatural one, man lying with man as man lies with a woman. This was completely against God's intent for mankind. This represented the total embodiment of rebellion against God. In this, Satan's influence reigned supreme in that no pleasure would be withheld from man including sexual pleasures and fantasies.

    Because of this corruption, God could no longer allow this to continue and after rescuing Lot and his family from those cities, God judged those cities by utterly destroying them. Score a big one for Satan. He found the formula he needed to destroy mankind and defeat God once and for all. Get God to destroy His own creation again but this time, without redeeming any man from the earth. With his plan well in hand, Satan knew that all he needed to do to defeat God would be to get mankind to turn completely away from God by indulging in all things that brought them pleasure. Easy!

    Now if only he could destroy this promise God made with Abraham. Satan's plan was working. Now he just needs to implement his plan on a much larger scale AND stop God's plan. Satan saw his first chance to stop God's plan when Abraham's descendants moved to Egypt. Now all he needed to do was wait till a leader would come who had not been influenced by Abraham's seed. Now he would oppress God's people. In the meantime, he had already started the process of influencing the other nations in the world to follow his lead. Satan nearly won this round when for 400 years he oppressed God's people, nearly making them forget about God. But then, he blew his chance when he couldn't kill God's appointed deliverer. Satan's plan was flawless except where faith was involved. God had a unique way to influence man by speaking to man's heart. His power was evident by revealing man's innermost thoughts to him and convincing him to follow God's plan. It is this "Let us reason together..." Satan was attempting to overthrow. Once man believed God by seeing his own selfish nature versus God's loving nature, Satan could not counter this. He had to find another way to stop this. He was confident he could. He just needed to do what he did with those first two. Get them to question God's motives and play upon their own desires. Easy!

    So because God found one man, Moses, to believe in Him, He was able to use this 'connection' to intervene. Not the way Satan planned it but within the rules. Either of them could intervene if they received permission from man. Once the descendants of Abraham were rescued from Egypt, it would be a small thing to turn them against Moses and God in the harsh environment of the desert, he nearly succeeded except for those two men, Joshua and Caleb. They believed God just like Moses. UGH! So now Satan had two to contend with. No matter, he will destroy them all in the desert. He will just let God judge them and he can influence them to not receive their "promise". But something else happened that Satan did not anticipate. When God brought them into the wilderness, He spoke to them from that mountain. Fortunately for Satan, they did not like it when God spoke to them, exposing the motives of their hearts. They chose not to hear God speak again. All the better for his plan. God gave them all a tool He hoped would set the stage for what He had planned later in the game. God gave man His LAW. This was to give man a hope and to begin training mankind to start thinking like God. His plan was to get mankind to not only agree with Him but to WANT to follow Him. You have to 'crack' the egg to eat the egg and as fragile as man is, this had to be given in stages. Too much too quickly and it would work the opposite of what His plan was. Patience is the name of this game now.

    Several thousand years have passed now with the battle going back and forth. It was obvious that the time to bring in the next stage of His plan was needed. God's influence was holding but just barely. Many who followed Him have been corrupted through Satan's influence but there still remained a remnant. God was very careful to keep that generational line from Adam alive. Satan had no clue to this, God's master plan. All good! The stage was finally set for the next event. God knew all along what He needed to do to finally, once and for all, gain the heart of mankind to where none of the tricks and deceptions and enticements of Satan would find a place to gain a foothold in mankind's heart. All He needed was to bring His own Spirit and place His Spirit in the heart of mankind. However, the only way this could happen is if this next stage were to succeed. EVERYTHING, God's entire strategy, rested on this next stage.

    Satan knew something was up. He tried to stop God's plan just as he tried against Moses but once again, God thwarted his plan. Jesus would live. Satan was desperate. He knew something very bad for him was going to happen if God got His way with Jesus. He had to kill Him. There was no other way to stop Him that he could see. He had never seen a man like this man before. Nothing worked with Him. Even when Jesus was at his weakest, he still couldn't influence Him. Jesus had something that no man has ever had before but Satan had no clue what that was. Whatever it was, he knew he had to stop it or he may not win this game. So he worked harder than any other time before and threw everything he had against Jesus. Nothing seemed to work! Frustrated and angry, he focused all his energy in setting up to have men kill this Man. Finally, the day came and all his hard work was paying off. He finally was able to convince everyone involved to kill Jesus. Now he had Jesus right where he wanted Him, on that cross. Satan felt he was about to win the biggest prize of all. He was killing God's own Son! Now all hope for the rest of mankind was done for. He will win this round and have what he felt belonged to him from the beginning. He will rule heaven and earth and replace God as Lord of everything.

    Then suddenly, something unexpected happened. Jesus was dead but he won't stay dead. Wait, Satan thought, I won, He HAS to stay dead. I won fair and square! But wait, God said Satan couldn't kill Jesus because Jesus never sinned. Since death was the penalty of sin and Jesus never sinned, Satan had no right to kill Him. So God raised Jesus from the dead! God's plan succeeded! He made sure Jesus would die so that all mankind would have access to be redeemed back to God. He found Satan's vulnerability and exploited it. CHECK! God used Satan's own pride and arrogance against him and got Satan to do what God wanted done all along. To kill His own Son and blind Satan from seeing God's master plan. Now the stage was set for God to send His Spirit into the hearts of all those who believed in Jesus' sacrifice. Now God had the right to write His laws on the tablets of mankind's heart so they will never be deceived again, never fall to enticements again, never fear again because God's love will be written forever in their hearts!

    None of Satan's strategies would be able to work anymore. For the first time in all of history, it looked as if the tide had finally turned and Satan would be defeated. But this huge victory appeared to be short lived. Satan was not ready to give in. He would find a way...any way to turn the tide back in his favor. He will find a way to twist the truth and convince mankind again to seek after their own pleasures. In the process, he will turn them against each other again. His time was beginning to run out and he knew it. Desperate times meant desperate measures. Whatever he was to do, he knew it had to be quick. So he drew from a plan that seemed promising that he used many thousands of years before when he was able to convince mankind they could do anything they set their minds to do. BABYLON! He would re-introduce the religion of that ancient Babylon and call it Christian! He would use the methods that have always worked before and lure those who held back from God. They would be placed in high places of leadership in this new religion and change the rules of church in order to turn everyone away from God but convince them they were still serving God. BRILLIANT! Make them serve themselves but convince them they are serving God. How could this new plan NOT work!

    Part of this plan was to get rid of the Holy Spirit. He just needed to convince these Christians that the Holy Spirit was only for those first century Christians. The bible was all they needed now. Lock up the bible into a single language that only the Babylonian priests knew and this way, they could control all those followers of Christ. SIMPLY BRILLIANT!

    For hundreds of years, this plan seemed to work splendidly. Just a few men didn't buy into the lie but that was okay because he could have them hunted down easily and killed or recant their faith through pain and suffering. However, some of those men began to speak out against this church and they seemed to have the Holy Spirit for he could not entice them away. Oh's starting again. The Holy Spirit is moving in their midst and his enticements are not working. Now they have printed the bible into the common language and anyone can read it for themselves. The day of the church controlling them was slipping away. Not too concerned for Satan knew he could find men of corrupt minds who walked deceitfully. These will be his tools to divide and conquer. One by one, these new church houses will be infiltrated and divided. After all, a house divided against itself will not stand.

    Hundreds of years later, his juggernaut of a church still had its followers but had lost most of its political and religious influence but he could work on that soon enough. He intends to strengthen it again through this ecumenical movement. All he has to do is convince these wayward church organizations that they all need to be unified. Once they believe this, he can begin his final move to destroy all God's followers once and for all by creating a one world government and religion. In the meantime, the stage needs to be re-set. He needs to get God to bring judgment against those nations that stand in the way of his plans. He will use the blueprints of Sodom and Gomorrah. If he can get those nations to be a stench in God's nostrils, God may destroy them in judgment even with His Christ followers there.

    Satan's own master plan was coming together. He would get God to destroy through judgment and revive the Babylonian religion that once controlled the whole world. Finally, he knew he could defeat God and whatever plan He has. Nation will rise up against nation. The stench of Sodom and Gomorrah would rise again but in a much larger scale and the whole world will worship the false image of Christ once again. A three pronged attack. How could it fail!?

    At this point, it is vital we understand Satan's success in Sodom and Gomorrah. Sexual immorality was only one of the many sins that brought God's judgment. Homosexuality played a major role for it was out of this sin that all the other sins were birthed. Let's see what the scripture said was their downfall.
    Ezekiel 16:49-50 (NKJV)
    Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter (Gomorrah) had PRIDE, FULLNESS OF FOOD, and ABUNDANCE OF IDLENESS; NEITHER DID SHE STRENGTHEN THE HAND OF THE POOR AND NEEDY. 50 And they were HAUGHTY and COMMITTED ABOMINATION before Me; therefore I took them away as I saw fit.

    Leviticus 18:22 (NKJV)
    You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an ABOMINATION.

    Leviticus 18:29 (NKJV)
    For whoever commits any of these ABOMINATIONS, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
    All these verses point out that the practice of homosexuality is considered not only a sin but an abomination before God punishable by death. All sin is punishable by death but this sin is one of great abhorrence to God bringing with it the punishment of death much sooner than other sins. The bible teaches that the very land itself is defiled by this sin. Now that we can see how God sees this sin. Let's attempt to understand the process of sin.
    James 1:14-15 (AMP)
    But every person is tempted when he is drawn away, enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust, passions).
    15 Then the evil desire, when it has conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is fully matured, brings forth death.
    From enticement to conception to sin and finally death. Satan can only work if he can draw you away by the desires that lie in your own heart. If those desires are taken away because your heart has been circumcised, then Satan will not find anything in you, just as Jesus said he found nothing in Him. Our hearts become circumcised or presented for judgment (the definition of circumcise) when we see the motives of our heart as being selfish and self-pleasing in nature...contrary to Jesus' heart which was demonstrably unselfish serving not Himself but His Father in all things. When we see our own selfish heart, we realize that this was the sin that was laid on Jesus for judgment. We agree with God that we are worthy of all judgment but because of Jesus' sacrifice, we cry for His mercy. We are forgiven and cleansed. Now, the effect of that godly sorrow begins its work in our lives and 2 Corinthians 7:11 becomes a reality in our lives and no longer will we act upon the impulse of a selfish heart but we examine every thought that enters our minds and bring them captive to obedience to Christ.

    Satan can only draw us away if it is something we want or desire or have fantasied over. It is through the imaginations of our minds we open the door to temptation. The more we dwell on a thought, the greater the chance we will act on that thought. If we, as a man, see a beautiful woman and appreciate her beauty but let it go, we are safe. But if we look upon her to desire sexual contact or undress her with our mind, then we have sinned because we looked with lust in our heart. It is the same when a man looks at another man with lust. Satan seeks to get us to use our imaginations to enhance our sexual drives. The more we give into these desires and the more we think about an encounter, the more likely we will succumb to our desires. In the case of a homosexually inclined male, the enticements may be sexual in nature or even emotional.

    If it is sexual in nature, an unnatural affection for the male sexual organ may become a fixation. Either with their own or the idea of another's, this fixation of the phalanx (penis) becomes an obsession. Once it has become an obsession, understand, this is when the demon reaches its greatest influence. Once this obsession moves into actual sexual contact, then the act gives permission for this demon of sexual perversity to take over. This is when possession occurs. Once the demon has gained control, the person has given up all control and becomes convinced, through this deception, they were meant to be homosexual. This does not make this a truth but the person has been convinced by this demon that it is a truth. It is at this point where the person has become sexually addicted as a homosexual. The only way they can be made free from this is to confess this as sin with the intent of turning away from that lifestyle and then receive deliverance from that demonic possession and influence. This IS a spiritual problem. This demon affects the person's judgment, desires, tastes, emotions and perspectives. All of which are centered and highly focused on seeking those things that will exalt themselves and please only themselves. It can be viewed or understood as selfishness on steroids.

    It is while under the influence of the demonic that the rest of those things God judged the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah come into play...such as PRIDE, FULLNESS OF FOOD, and ABUNDANCE OF IDLENESS; NEITHER DID SHE STRENGTHEN THE HAND OF THE POOR AND NEEDY. And they were HAUGHTY and COMMITTED ABOMINATION before God. Their focus becomes heightened and more self aware, so much so, that the needs of others become secondary if at all. It is the God kind of love that puts the needs of others ahead of their own need but a selfish love, seeks to please only themselves. In essence, the needs of others very nearly becomes invisible...they simply are no longer aware. And so it was in Sodom and Gomorrah. The men of that city wanted to have sexual relations with those two angels because they had the appearance of men and these had not "known" them before and were driven by that sexual excitement of the forbidden fruit. If even the angels of God were the subject of their desires, then no one was safe. God HAD to destroy them all. Like death and hell, theirs was a bottomless pit of desire and lust. The road they were on was self-destruction.

    Today, the United States is on a perilous path towards self-destruction as the homosexual agenda becomes increasingly aggressive. Anyone who says they believe God's word and believe only in opposite sex marriage is subject to vicious and vocal opposition being called homophobic and haters of the homosexuals. As Christians, the bible teaches us to hate the sin but love the sinner. This is NOT how the Christian message is being interpreted. We, as Christians, are being ostracized by the media and the homosexual crowds for our stance for the traditional values that this country was founded upon.

    This homosexual agenda seems to be heading to the same conclusion as it did with Sodom and Gomorrah where God's hand was forced to issue judgment. This is only part of Satan's own master plan to destroy the crown of God's creation. In the end, we as Christians know that the end of the book of Revelations has a different outcome than that planned by Satan. He ends in defeat and all his works are destroyed.

    In the meantime, it is important for those who are struggling with their homosexual tendencies and wish to be free of them to know they CAN be set free through Jesus's sacrifice and deliverance from the demonic possession and influences. It is also important that we, as the church of Jesus Christ, understand as well the nature of their plight and stand ready to help our brothers and sisters who are so bound, to lose their heavy bondage and set them free.

    We truly do fight against the powers of darkness of this world and have been given weapons that are mighty in pulling down strongholds and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. We must show ourselves ready to love and deliver these who have been bound by Satan these many years. Let us love with a pure love. Let us love as God loves and demonstrate His love towards all mankind. In this, we stand as warriors, ready to defeat the enemy of our souls through the blood of the Lamb, the word of our testimony and we love not our own lives unto death.
