DEATH

So you will be delivered from the forbidden woman,
from the adulteress with her smooth words,
who forsakes the companion of her youth
and forgets the covenant of her God;
for her house sinks down to death,
and her paths to the departed;
none who go to her come back,
nor do they regain the paths of life.

(Proverbs 2:16-19 ESV)

The porn star, the woman in skimpy clothes and the one who flirts inappropriately all lead to death. The time spent investing in her never come back. The scars that affect others because of her never fully heal. She is called forbidden for a reason, she only comes to steal and destroy.

None who go to her come back. On my own strength I cannot leave just like how Lazarus could not leave the tomb until Jesus called him out. There is a deliverance that can be found because there is power in the blood of Christ. Despite that there is still a cost of sin that must be paid. Jesus paid the price for freedom, but there are still consequences. Contemplate your relationships with others are damaged by lust and pornography and magnify that by infinity and that is the grief that is given to the Holy Spirit.

Thanks be to God that there is a deliverance that can be had as referenced in v. 16. Next I will blog on Proverbs 2 about the deliverance it references.
