My husband, David, wrote this but we were ALL there- The WHOLE FAMILY!!!
Porn is wrong and I know this because I was addicted to it from the age of 14 to 31...
God revealed to me that it is filthy & evil...
It says in the Bible:
If you even look upon a person to lust after them , you have committed adultery in your heart. (Matthew 5:27-28) This was Jesus speaking!
I have a personal testimony I'd like to share with you. Not too long ago, I decided I would fast & pray for the first time in my life. I commited to a 7 day fast. So, I started my fast on a Saturday and I figured I would end it at 12:00 midnight on this coming Saturday. So it's now the next Saturday and I get off work at 6 on Saturdays. So, I go home and tell my wife that as soon as it is midnight I'm gonna rush over to McDonalds and get a Big Mac! Haha...My wife then replies to me... "I thought you were fasting for 7 days, right?" I replied yes... Since I started on last Saturday, this Saturday at midnight will be exactly 7 days. She then explained to me how I was actually already into the 8th day of fasting... I told her how she was wrong but when I went to count the days on the calender, as usual SHE WAS RIGHT! LOL :-) I had lived up to my promise and I could go and get some food!
So I quickly gathered up my whole family and went into the bedroom and asked everyone to kneel down and pray with me. I had read about how when you fast and pray your prayers become like an atomic bomb in the spirit world. So I wanted to say one last prayer before I ended my fast. Anyhow, I was just quickly trying to get through my prayers because I had a Big Mac & fries on my mind.
Something incredible happened!!! All of a sudden...I was overcome and started praying over the strongholds in my city and the addictions that people were struggling with. I also began to pray against the powers of witchcraft that are deceiving the nations. At this point, I became almost angry and began to speak very loudly! I screamed in a loud voice and said, "God destroy the stronghold of pornography that is breaking apart the families in Overland Park!" Right then the GROUND BEGAN TO SHAKE!
I was so afraid I almost stopped praying but at that exact moment I yelled out! "LORD destroy the stronghold of fear that is keeping us in bondage as well." Then I finished up my prayers just praising the Lord for his goodness, grace & His power. I decided not to break my fast after that so I actually went another 8 days before I ended my fast. Anyway, I would have thought I had lost my mind if my wife and kids had not been present and felt the ground shaking as well! There was also a noise like a jet-engine it was like a whoop, whoop, whoop, whooping kind of sound coming off of the walls around us! I can't explain it but I know that whatever this supernatural experience was, it started while I was praying against porn.
Sadly, I think the devil has deceived many Christians in this area as well as greed, pride and worry and having unforgiveness in their hearts.
I am just so grateful to God because I dont deserve the grace he has shown me. Anyhow, I just try to follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit and I pray in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ who died on the cross, rose on the third day & now sits on the right side of the Father, that you will listen to what the Holy Spirit is telling you as well. You really should read sister Mary's testimony... I did and it changed my life!!!

"Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound?
By no means! How can we who DIED TO SIN go on living in it?"
Matthew 7:22-23 (This is Jesus talking)
On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws...'
Sleepy Christains! Please WAKE up! THIS IS REAL... GOD IS REAL... HEAVEN IS REAL! HELL IS REAL! The LORD is coming SOON and we need to take inventory of ourselves so we can be ready. Clean up your houses NOW while you have time unless you want the LORD to show up while it's dirty and be put to shame. Don't watch TV unless it glorifies God and the same with the music you listen to!
