Masturbation is the stimulation of one’s genitals with one’s hands for sexual pleasure.
Many have called masturbation a normal thing because it has to do with the satisfaction of one’s feelings. Many people today masturbate because they don’t want to be moved by the physical attractions of the opposite sex when they go out.
Masturbation is seen to be very pleasurable when one has no partner to have sexual intercourse with. But this same thing has a very big disadvantage.
Its alluring nature makes its victims become addicts to it. Many even enjoy it more than normal sex.
Masturbation is evil; it is a type of sexual immorality, and it has its reward. There is a spirit of sexual immorality assigned to it that gives the bearer an ever growing desire to continue engaging in it after the first experience.
In male, masturbation is very bad; it may feel pleasing to the bearer at the moment but a time comes when the effect will start showing.
First, the man will be easily carried away by pornographic videos or pictures: he could ejaculate without anyone touching him. This is because his male organ is now sensitive to every touch. His brains becomes very fast in calculating what is to happen in the video, and this makes him know what the pone actor is to do next. Because of his great expectation of what the pone actor is about to do, before he knows it, he has ejaculated.
This is so because masturbation takes a lot of hallucination: the bearer imagines that he was doing it with a girl. And when he is used to this act, his male organ becomes sensitive to his touch, and even the touch of a female, thereby making him not last long during real sex.
To every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Whoever sows in the flesh, will in turn reap in the flesh. (Galatians 6:7)
This topic has become so relevant because it is one of the problems that lead to broken homes in the world today.
Romans 1:24 says, Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.
Sexual dissatisfaction is a reward of masturbation. A man who is used to the act of masturbation can hardly satisfy his wife when it comes to sex because during sex, even before sex, he had imagined all that he would do to his wife and so before he even starts, he is almost done. And since his male organ is too sensitive, he ejaculates within 1 to 2 minutes.
This is a problem that has affected many homes in the world today. When they engage in it (masturbation), they gain satisfaction not knowing it has a reward.
Many men have lost their homes because of this; many wives have gone out to find succor in other men because of their husband’s inability to satisfy them sexually; and many have divorced because of sexual dissatisfaction which emerged as a result of masturbation.
HOW DID THEY START IT
This starts between the last two years of their teenage age and the first ten years of their youth age. The bearer becomes a victim of this evil sometime as a result of bad company (friends). Since he is young, he has this high libido which courses him to be swayed by evil desires and advises. In some cases, he has not reached the appointed age to engage in sex and so he finds a way to satisfy himself. His friends who have been victims of this evil (masturbation) give him all the education he needs concerning the act, and so he finds a quite place to practice it, and when he sees that it helped him, he continues in the act until it becomes a habit.
A Christian who engaged in the act of masturbation should not expect a good result. An apple tree cannot bear orange fruit: it will produce fruits of its kind. Quick ejaculation is a product of masturbation.
Christians are therefore, advised to hold on to the word of God as masturbation is a sin against their bodies, their wives and above all God.
Christian parents are advised to teach their children the implication of masturbation. They might not commit fornication but masturbation is very common among teenagers and youths. The earlier you advise them the better for them.
Christ said anyone who looks at a woman with lost has committed sexual immorality with her. In Christianity, hallucinating about having sex with someone is a sin and hallucination normally goes with masturbation.
Parents are therefore, admonished to teach their children to be holy in all areas of their lives. They should teach them all the verses in the Bible that kicked against sexual immorality.
Always avoid alluring movies. Examples are; pone videos, highly romantic videos, etc. Others are pone pictures, and looking deeply at a girl beyond what she is wearing.
Learn to always turn to the word of God when feeling rises.
Do not always give attention to attractive and fascinating things.
FOR THOSE THAT ARE VICTIMS OF MASTURBATION
Do not be discouraged, you can stop it; it is easy to stop when you are a Christian.
God is always there to help us overcome our past if we seek him diligently.
To overcome it, kindly read the entire book of Matthew in the Bible.
Having read it, compare the words of Christ with your way of life. If there are differences, then there is a need for you to amend your ways to his ways. Before you finish observing his words, you must have overcome it.
Please note that before you read the book, kindly pray a short prayer with all your heart welcoming the Holy Spirit to teach you his word and reveal the reality behind the teachings to you the way he wants you to know them. Having prayed the prayer and read the book (Matthew), post a reply if you have any questions.
However, you still need prayer because masturbation has a spirit that needs to be overcome.
Please do not ignore if you are someone that masturbates, it is dangerous. It is one of the problems that courses divorce in the world today, and to fight divorce, one has to start from the scratch.
Coming up next is COVETOUSNESS, kindly paste your questions, by the grace of God, I will answer them.
Thank you and God bless you.
