Yeah heard some scary stuff from people I have known for long time in what I thought was strong faith the last weeks , it’s amazing seems like the falling away is happing rapidly .
Thank you for responding. It's interesting what you have to say, as we believe we've noticed a severe "uptick" in such people ourselves (my wife and I) the past year or two, perhaps. An awful lot of people, some of whom we've known for many decades, acting totally out of character and doing things that we never thought possible.
We have literally been chased out of our Country into another by some incredibly evil deeds, and we've found some demons masquerading as angels where we are now too who seem to be plants of the enemy to try to "catch" those who are running looking for refuge...
Sorry to hear , i pray all is well with you guys 🙌🏼🌿 stand firm in strength in faith and walk in truth ,... YAH will have your backs , there will be many challengers ahead for us all but we must fear not as we serve the Most High 🌿🙌🏼
@luisnpereira Thank you, I shouldn't worry too much about us. We have been trying to wake others up since the mid 90's. We've been trying to prepare for this ourselves since then as well, but let's just say that we now fully understand the meaning of, "...where thieves enter & moths and rust destroy". We've taken it as a possible message that He's trying to get us to lean more on Him.
FYI, it has been my experience that MOST, yes I said MOST, American men, "Christian" or whatever label they chose to give themselves, view porn. I believe it to be around or just under 90%.
I have sinned in that regard myself in the past. I try very hard to make sure it stays in my past. I used to have relapses but this is currently the longest time I've ever gone.
My father when I was 11 introduced me to porn, and I wanted nothing to do with it. He and his mother (now long deceases) for many years thought I was "Gay", and that side of the family apparently got so into that opinion that even the other side of my family (my parent's were divorced) got wind of it and started to worry.
My parents when I was 15 told me that either I signed up for the Military before I graduated HS, or I would be thrown out of the house 3 months after Graduation. I did so. I was exposed to massive amounts of porn & drunkeness while in the Military. Word started to spread that supposedly, "I was gay", because I was celibate. I was nearly arrested and thrown out because of this. When you're a low ranked person in the Military, you have to do what your told to a great extent. I was exposed to porn again against my will. I refused to look, but the sounds of it affected me greatly. Incredibly strong urges like I'd never known possible stayed with me for literally weeks on end. For the the better part of a year I didn't act out on them. Not long after that I fornicated for the first time. Tried to marry the girl but found out she had aborted a baby behind my back. She later, "turned lesbian". (Her words, not mine).
Porn has the power to destroy lives in ways most people can't imagine. I know of an old HS friend that Married and his wife eventually left him because of it. She said that it progressed from Porn into far worse things...
Wow. Please know that I will be and have already been praying for you. Also: you have a Wife that fesses up to it? You are BLESSED! I'm so sorry for what you're going through with your children. As a Father myself I can't imagine anything more difficult to deal with short of actually havind them die. I will tell my Wife and ask for her to pray for you as well.
Indeed they are.
Sorry....was responding to the original post.
I too have sent information to family and friends about the seventh day, the feasts....actual scripture and some resources, and all I get is an “amen” or nothing at all. It just tells me they didn’t really understand what I said or they don’t care. It IS heartbreaking.
My ex husband had an issue with porn. It did lead to worse things. He cheated on me more than 20 times, per his confession after getting out of prison for a child porn charge. He brought home disease. I never knew if he had some other woman he was seeing, or if what he said was even the truth. He lied about many things. He’d sit in front of that computer until super late at night. We never went to bed at the same time. I grew to hate the computer because it stole him.
I fear the same for my daughter as was said earlier in this post...as she only seems to talk about materialistic things.
I try to teach her what scripture says and that our enemy is the king of lies and deception and he makes all the bad stuff look fun and extra delicious and full of happy feel good stuff in order to deceive us into following his ways. Her dad is mainstream as is his family. She is obliged to be over there for all the false holidays. I have already started teaching her where all those traditions come from, and as she gets older I’ll be able to show her more. Ultimately, she will have to decide for herself as we all must do. I pray over her often.
