Is it really possible to put a FULL STOP to watching porn?

The other day, one of my friends shared his struggle with me with regard to overcoming the addiction of porn. In this post, I would like to share the summary of our discussion, and how the Lord helped him. We met at a restaurant to discuss and pray over this. I really appreciate his courage to open up this issue. It’s when you are weak you need a friend to help. (Even Jesus had prayer partners. We will see that later)Coffee

With much prayer we started to discuss this, and the Holy Spirit led the conversation and we started praying together. I saw a vision of demons loosing the clutches on that friend, and I could really sense a total freedom in his life. I would like to share with you what I shared with him. We prayed together, and he was totally delivered. By the grace of God, he never watched it again.

I really pray that this post might really help someone out there.

This brother was struggling with pornography for long. He prayed about it, tried so hard, but still was unable to overcome it. Because of this, his spiritual life was getting affected. He really needed help.

I asked him, Brother, when did you start watching porn? (I was praying within, for the help of the Holy Spirit, because this is one area where God’s help is very much required)

He replied, From college days (Now, I understood the seriousity of his situation. The devil has been deceiving him for long. Now he needed true deliverance, a complete freedom from pornography)

Then, I listened to all what he had to share. (By the way, we were at a restaurant. After some time, people started coming in. We were slightly distracted. But Holy Spirit reminded me to complete the conversation and deal with it right then and there itself, lest the devil get a chance. We continued…)

I was really praying hard within my mind, seeking for help from above, because I knew it is a spiritual battle. I was confident enough that God was present in the midst of  us, willing to help.

After much prayer, I shared the following things with him (I have put the summary as a conversation, so that it will be easy for you to understand )

Is a complete STOP possible?

Brother, I want you to know that, it is 100% possible to put a FULL STOP to pornography. Do you believe that?

Yes, but many times I tried to stop, and I really wanted to stop, but during that moment, I somehow fall into it.

I understand! It’s a real struggle. First, I want you to be rest assured that, it is 100% possible to stop watching pornography, and we need to believe it. There are many other sexual temptations, this one is the most critical, because it affects not only your mind, but your spirit. Your whole life is spoiled. It is definitely a SIN, and you know the consequences!100% No porn (2)

First point, it is clearly a SIN

I opened the scriptures, to this portion (in my mobile phone)

But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

Brother, you know what Jesus was talking about! This is clearly a sin! God really loves you so much, but He does’t like you to stay where you are now. He is willing to help. Are you ready?

(God is like a loving Father waiting for you with His loving wide arms to receive you)Father

Yes!

Brother, the second thing, I want you to understand is this: Pornography is demonic. There are demons who are at constant work day and night to force people to watch this. It is absolutely satanic. That is why many times you were unable to overcome with your own strength. You need a total deliverance. And that’s what we are going to ask God now! But you need to do one thing.

An agreement is needed

I turned to another scripture.

But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the king’s food, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the officers that he might not defile himself. (Daniel 1: 8)

(If you know the story of Daniel you can skip this para. Daniel was taken into captivity to Babylon. There he was one among them who was selected to be the King’s officials. They had to undergo training for 3 years. But Daniel and his three friends were vegetarians and it was against their faith to take part in the royal food. So Daniel decided in his heart, that he would not make himself unholy with the king’s food and wine. Therefore He requested the supervisor to consider him, in this matter. The Supervisor had special favor on Daniel and his friends and granted his request. Daniel and his friends successfully completed the training and the King certified that they were ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom. God honored Daniel and his friends for taking a stand for God in a foreign country)

Brother, what was the main thing Daniel did here?

He read that version again, and said, “Daniel purposed in his heart”

Very good! Daniel took that decision in his heart to stay holy. And that’s the key. So now, you need to take a decision in your heart that you will never ever watch pornography. Don’t think about whether it is really possible or not. Trust in God and take that decision. It’s an agreement between you and God. And I will be witness to that agreement.

Covenant

I explained to him, on why a decision was important. God’s work in us starts when we decide to take a stand for Him. It is at that instant He will help us. If we think: It doesn’t matter, we will somehow overcome the temptation, let me tell you, it’s not gonna work.

In order to take that decision, first you need to understand that pornography is a business owned by the devil and we have no part in it. The CEO of this business is satan himself. Therefore, we need to reject satan and his products. You can’t please both God and satan. You have to say ‘No’ to satan and ‘Yes’ to Jesus. Then you will receive that supernatural power and strength to overcome this.

I noticed that he was convinced of what we discussed, and Holy Spirit guided us to the next step.

Thirdly, action

Brother, when we read that portion of Daniel’s decision, what did you notice next? (We read it again)

He replied, Daniel communicated his decision to the Supervisor

Exactly! That’s what we are going to do next. We are going to take this decision to the next step. We are going to communicate it to God, now! It is confession. Now, don’t worry about whether you will be able to follow that decision. Trust in God and confess it. It is God who is going to take care of you. He will contribute His best in helping you. Ready?

Yes, I am!

Also one more thing, apply the blood of Jesus, when you confess your sins. It is the blood of Jesus, which was shed on the cross for you, will wash away your sins completely

the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. I John 1: 7, 8

Now, I want you to spend few minutes praying on your own. Ask God for help. Take that decision now itself, and tell God what you have decided. (That was a silent moment of prayer)Flesh is weak

Meanwhile, I was praying for his life (with my eyes open) I was pleading to God, to help him. I could really feel the divine presence of God at that moment. Heaven was opened, and God and His angels came to that restaurant to help us.

After that prayer, I told, Now we are going to pray together. God is going to give you deliverance. 100% freedom from pornography and satanic forces. Let’s pray

I started praying for him. I was moved by the Holy Spirit to pray in other tongues (That’s a special language in prayer). Father, I pray in the Name of Jesus, please help my dear brother to overcome this sin. By the authority laid upon me, I claim deliverance. Let him be freed from the power of satan. Forgive all his sins, and wash him with your blood. Cleanse him and make him whole. (as we continued some more time in prayer)

Wow!! It was a powerful moment. I could sense that the demons attacking him flying away from him. His face started to shine. And we experienced a divine healing.

Brother, how do you feel?

He explained how relaxed he felt. A great burden left him. I knew very well that he was already freed. I was so happy.

Brother, God is not going to remember your past sins. He has completely written it off! Be blessed

For I will be merciful to their wrongdoing, and I will never again remember their sins.

One last thing, pray that you do not fall into temptation

Brother, few more things we need to do. Don’t wait for that moment of temptation, inorder to overcome it, but pray at all times. Get ready beforehand to fight the battle. Temptation will still follow you, but God will help you.

And mercilessly block all the possible situations to get access to porn. Delete all unwanted stuff from your mobile phone. If you have free internet, switch off mobile data. Make yourself busy with other things. Don’t waste time sitting idle, that’s when the devil comes near to you. Do something, read, write, play, learn a musical instrument. If possible, buy an ordinary phone, and stay away from smart phone for some months.Idle mind

And he did it. He bought an old model Nokia phone. I really appreciate his bold stand for Jesus. I had been following him up for the last few days. Never again he watched it. Praise the Lord. Jesus is real!
