Biblical View on Fornication and End-Times



The Old Testament viewed premarital sex as a capital offense against one’s future spouse. This was unlike the Gentile nations that condoned premarital sex. The Greek word for fornication is porneuo, which means to act like a harlot, indulge in unlawful lust of either sex, or practice idolatry – fornication. Fornication is idolatry, because that person you sleep with isn't your spouse.  You’re bowing down to get in the bed with your idol instead of obeying the Word of God.   It is idolatry when an individual places a person they’re consistently fornicating with over the Word.  First Samuel 15:23 states, “stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.”

That person you’re sleeping with is an idol in your heart and it is evident that the Holy Spirit doesn't reign supreme in your life. Every time that person calls you jump up and run to him/her.  The next thing you know, you’re in the sack.   The Holy Spirit calls out to you in order to lead and guide you into all truth.  That person means no good for your spirituality.  Instead of listening, you turn a deaf ear to the voice of Godly wisdom.


First Corinthians 6:18-20 says, “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”   Our body is the temple of the Holy Ghost. When you fornicate you desecrate your temple.  You sin against your own body. If you continue in the sin of fornication you will die.  Romans 6:23 tells us that the wages of sin is death.  You may eventually earn a sexually transmitted disease that attacks your physical body.


Fornication Destroys the Soul


Sexual sins destroys the soul (Proverbs 6:32). The Greek word for soul is called psuche, which derives psychology study of the soul. Your soul is made up of the intellect, will, memory, emotions, and imagination. First example your involve in fornication, Your intellect or reasoning will tell you that you’re in love with him or her so its OK to have sex before marriage.  You essentially rely on your own understanding instead of the Word of God.  Secondly, after you intellectualize being in a sexual relationship your will is given unto your carnal desires. Thirdly, you will have memories of the good and bad things of the illicit relationship. Why do you think someone can be in the act of intercourse with one person and call out another person’s name? It is because the soul connection of the memory is still there.  The person is comparing their present sexual experience with a former.  The fourth example is the emotions.  You develop the emotion of bitterness.  Because of your memory, you remember all the bad relationships you had in the past.  A person develops bitterness and emotional detachment. So when man or woman of God comes to you, your’re damage goods from all the bad relationships you had in the past.  You’re unable to make that godly connection. Lastly is the imagination.  The enemy uses the imagination to keep sexual perverse thoughts in your head and to prevent you from being obedient to the will of God.


Fornication is a End-Time Sign and will Escalate

Revelation 9:20-21

King James Version (KJV)
20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    1. First of all the Bible says to flee fornication(run from it) in 1 Corinthians 6:18, and Jesus says in John 14:15 if you love him keep His commandments. If you know that this illicit relationship doesn't please God, then you need to come out of it(stop being in that relationship/repent turn away from it) ASAP! The thoughts you're having about no one else will love you or want you is coming from the voice of demons to deceive you into staying in your current relationship. That is not in the Will of God for your life. Jesus Christ loves you, and He has so much better for your life if you "trust Him!" I know if you let this person go it will be void to you, however surround yourself around good Bible believing Single Christian Ministry, find godly single activities you can attend to keep you active, fast/pray and read your Bible will help fill the void in your life.

    2. Anyone that loves you will not ask you to participate in sin with them. The Scriptures say we cause another person to sinwhen we fornicate with them. I think that is Second Corinthians. It also says Holy Spirit cannot live in our bodies when we commit sexual sin.

    3. Flee this. Go home and repent. Turn to 1John 1:9
      Read it and command the demonic powers of lust, fornication to leave oppressing you ... begin to yawn ... yawn them out and you'll start yawning repeatedly. Continue commanding them to come out and verbally apply the Blood of Jesus to this process ... they will come out and when it is done you'll know. Begin fellowship in a bible- believing church. choose a Baptist one.
      Maranatha. The rapture is imminent. Glory to Jesus Christ of Nazareth who is standing at the right hand of God the Father making intercession for all truly born again believers.
      God bless you.
