This is a collection of testimonies from those who claim to have experienced heaven and hell, as well as those who have had direct, face-to-face encounters with God the Father in heaven, the Lord Jesus Christ, or His holy angels.  It includes a number of documented accounts of individuals being raised from the dead.  It also includes some visions and important Scriptural studies on the topic of heaven and hell.

"Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he." (Pro 29:18, KJV)

"For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life." (1 Thes 4:7, NIV)

It is my prayer that these testimonies will lead you to pray earnestly and seek the Lord's face, regarding the destiny of your own soul, and the souls of the people in your life, so that you and they will not miss the glories of heaven and wind up in hell for eternity.

Testimony Review Process

On this blog I post testimonies of people, who claim that they have received a divine revelation from the Lord Jesus Christ.  As you read these, you will find some of them to be controversial.  However, that alone is not a reason to reject them.  Each one needs to be reviewed on its own merit to see if it is truly from the Lord.

We should be like the Berean believers: "Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so." (Act 17:11). By this I am not implying that these testimonies constitute the Word of God, or that they become a new book of the Bible. However, they do contain messages purportedly from Jesus Christ, and they often quote Scripture. Don't despise prophetic utterances (1Th 5:20).  Let's eagerly receive anything the Lord has so say to us through His Body, but be diligent to examine the Scriptures daily to see whether these things are so. Let's test the spirits to see whether they are from God.

I would like to suggest that here we use the same review criteria outlined on Robert Brownell's website, SpiritLessons. Brownell states:

"[This] website receives many new testimonies from around the world, by people who testify of Revelations by Jesus. These testimonies are very valuable, but like the 1st century church, there needs to be review process by Mature Christians. When a testimony has something controversial or difficult, we'll put it under the 'UNDER REVIEW' section.  With a comment box on the bottom, for wise Christian counsel. This should help weed out problems, and identify issues.  Similar to the way the early Church discussed matters."

"Remember, we are NOT canonizing scripture here. The Bible is sufficient!  We were never given permission by God to add His scripture.  We are just investigating Face to Face encounters with Jesus Christ.  None of these testimonies have gone through the rigorous and thorough testing that the Bible has gone through. If something contradicts with clear scripture, please note that in the comment section.   I never allow people's revelations to contradict verbatim scripture. If any revelation contradicts clear scripture, I reject it. For the Bible is my foundation of doctrine. But I will allow revelations to challenge my interpretation of scripture. And I will not pridefully hold up my interpretation of scripture as infallible."

"Things to remember when reviewing:
1. Please understand that there MAY be mistranslations from the original testimony.
2. There MAY be places where authors are not clear enough in their description.
3. We are looking for patterns, that show up in multiple testimonies.  This gives certain issues more weight.
4. Also remember that we don't care about their opinions, ideas or speculation.  We only really care about what Jesus told them. There are many good people of God who can have misunderstandings in their opinions. No one's opinions are perfect.  Hopefully they won't share opinions in their testimonies, we just want the FACTS!  WHAT WAS THE MESSAGE FROM JESUS?  This is why we often highlight the words of Jesus in Dark, Bolded Red.
5. Also, regarding sin, remember that the Lord weighs the Motives of the Heart.  Two people can do the same thing, and the Lord judges differently.  Therefore if one person claims an actions can lead a person to Hell, we're looking for a clear definition of what that action is, not just a vague description."

"So get your Bibles, and hammer these testimonies out. Please leave Wise and Referenced Comments on the bottom." -- Robert Brownell.

In addition to these excellent guidelines that Brownell has recommended, for more help in reviewing these testimonies, please read my articles, called "Testing the Spirits of False Prophets," "Discerning the Things of the Spirit," "Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit," "A Warning to the Nay Sayers," "An Open Mind that Loves the Truth," and "The Top Ten Things Jesus Taught."  It is very important to test the fruit of the messenger, and that is why I try to check the character of the person giving the testimony, when it is controversial.  I attempt to make phone calls and speak with the person who had the experience, as well as with those who know the person well, in order to see what kind of fruit is in their lives.

I hope these guidelines will help you as you seek to test the spirits and discern the things of the spirit.

The Marine Kingdom and Queen of the Coast

Today I would like to share with you a testimony from sister Rachael Mushala, a Zambian journalist, who has had numerous supernatural encounters.  I have written about some of those encounters previously in my articles, Rachael Mushala Testimony of Hell, Rachael Mushala Second Testimony of Hell, and Rapture Revelation to the Mushala Sisters. I have also spoken with her father, pastor Joseph Mushala, who verified her godly character, and that of her sister, Zipporah.  And as I have gotten to know these sisters personally over the course of time, we have become friends.  I have seen nothing but good fruit in them. Therefore, I would now like to present Rachael's most recent testimony of a revelation she received from the Lord this month on January 15 and 16th, about the queen of the coast and the marine kingdom:

Rachael Mushala's Testimony
On Thursday, 15 January 2015, as I was praying, I saw an evil spirit known as the queen of the coast. It was in form of a woman and had a very proud expression on its face. It just stared at me angrily.

On Friday, 16 January 2015, the Lord took me to the marine kingdom to show me satan's plan against Christians. The Lord Jesus Christ showed me an evil spirit known as the queen of the coast and told me she is in charge of worldly fashions, worldly hairstyles and adornments, and everything immoral, including immoral TV programs.

The Lord took me there to show me that this is real and that Christians need to pray. When the Lord took me to that place in the spirit, there was a meeting being addressed by this evil spirit, the queen of the coast. She was speaking to the other evil spirits in a language I couldn't understand, but later she spoke in English. They seemed unaware of my presence because they just continued their meeting normally.

They were planing to initiate Christians who are weak in prayer into their kingdom, and Christians who prayed but held onto sin (living double lives). Then they began talking about a certain Christian lady.  They kept arguing that this lady belongs to them even though she is a Christian, because she was copying their fashion and styles, and they kept saying she belongs to them and should be one of them.

The Lord also allowed me to see another demon there, and it was laughing hysterically at how they were deceiving people. It laughed so hard it broke to piece, then the pieces came back together and it continued laughing. But then God spoke from heaven in a commanding voice. He spoke in a language I don't know but I understood it at that moment.

He said, "Stop! Be silent!"

And immediately everyone went quiet. No one dared to say another word. They all had to obey the King of Kings! That's how powerful our God is! Hallelujah! His word is always obeyed.

The revelation ended.

God showed me this because He doesn't want Christians to be unaware of the enemy's schemes. This was very real. We need to surrender to God completely and not live any place for satan.  He is like a lion always seeking whom to devour.  Every Christian must have a prayer life. A Christian who doesn't have a prayer life becomes easy prey for the enemy.

God bless you.
Rachael Mushala

Scriptures
"In that day, the Lord will punish with his sword— his fierce, great and powerful sword— Leviathan the gliding serpent, Leviathan the coiling serpent; he will slay the monster of the sea." (Is 21:7)

Job said to God, "Am I the sea, or the monster of the deep, that you put me under guard?" (Job 7:12)

"It was you who split open the sea by your power; you broke the heads of the monster in the waters." (Ps 74:13)

"Then Jehu went to Jezreel. When Jezebel heard about it, she put on eye makeup, arranged her hair and looked out of a window." (2 King 9:30).

"In order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes." (2 Cor 2:11)

"Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour." (1 Pe 5:8)

"And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, 'Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?'" (Rev 13:1-4)

The apostle Peter said of the Lord Jesus, "When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways."  (Ac 3:26)

"Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit; do not despise prophetic utterances. But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil. Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." (1Th 5:16-23)

"Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: 'Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.' (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.) Then the angel said to me, 'Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!' And he added, 'These are the true words of God.'" (Rev 19:6-9).

"...Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless." (Eph 5:26b-27).

Afterword from the Editor
I believe this revelation is from the Lord and that it confirms the previous revelation she had, which is documented in Rachael Mushala Testimony of Hell.  It also confirms what the Lord showed to her sister Zipporah about secular television, as recorded in Zipporah Mushala’s Second Testimony of Hell and Zipporah Mushala’s Third Testimony of Hell.  It also confirms what the Lord showed Claire Andoun Atongo about the queen of the coast, as recorded in Garments of Godliness. Furthermore, it confirms the Lord's revelation to many other servants of His regarding fashion, as recorded in Godly Attire and Adornment -- Seven Divine Revelations.

Marine spirits do exist! The first representation of a creature that was half-human and half-fish was the sea-god Oannes, the "great fish of the ocean," who was also the sun-god worshiped by the Babylonians.  He was believed to rise out of the sea each day with the sunrise and disappear back under the waves each night with sunset. The marine kingdom is where mermaids (and their counterparts, mermen) originate from, creatures that are half fish and half human. The mermaid* is actually an image of the fish-tailed goddess Aphrodite. Mermaids are often described as having great beauty and charm. They sometimes assumed human shape and married mortals in ancient legends.

The mermaid and merman, derive their names from the Anglo-Saxon word "mer," which means "sea." So the word "mermaid" literally means "Virgin of the Sea," and mermaids represent the so-called "sacred feminine," a movement emphasizing femininity as being closer to divinity than masculinity. Those who follow the sacred-feminine tradition worship feminine beauty and the power of sexual reproduction, and they assume that women are more “sacred” than men, due their reproductive capabilities. The followers of this religious tradition include goddess worshipers, Wicca witches, and radical feminists. They believe that men can only experience the sacred feminine in a spiritual way through sexual intercourse.

The marine kingdom is also the origin of the demonic pagan god Neptune, the Roman "god of the sea," a brother of Jupiter and Pluto. He corresponds to the Greek god, Poseidon whose main domain is the ocean, and is called the "god of the sea". In fact, there are too many sea gods, goddesses, and their offspring to possibly name them all, including Triton, Rhode, and Proteus. Some of these pagan gods and goddesses are featured in video games, novels, and even Disney movies like The Little Mermaid, which Walt Disney conceived in the 1930's and was released after his death!

In the Bible, we learn that the ancient Hebrews were ensnared by the false gods of the pagan nations around them, including Asherah, who was worshiped as the Queen of Heaven** (Deu. 16:21; Jdg. 6:25,26,28,30; 1Ki. 15:13; 16:33; 18:19; 2Ki. 13:6; 17:16; 18:4; 21:3,7; 23:4,6,7,15; 2Ch. 15:16; Jer. 7:18; 44:17,18,19,25). Asherah seems to correspond with the goddess Athirat. According to Wikipedia, "In the Ugaritic texts (before 1200 BC) Athirat is almost always given her full title...'Lady Athirat of the Sea' or as more fully translated 'she who treads on the sea.'"  (The Ugaritic language had close connections to the Hittite Empire). The same goddess known as Athirat in the Ugaritic language, and Asherah in the Hebrew language is probably the same as the Arabian goddess Ashira, which is translated to mean "lady of the sea." The Asherah pole that they used to worship her was a phallic symbol, representing the male reproductive organ.

Jezebel, the wife of King Ahab and the most evil woman in the Bible, made Asherah-worship even more prevalent in Israel.  In fact she supported 400 prophets of Asherah, who ate at her table. Under Ahab and Jezebel's reign, Israel observed the feasts of Baal and Asherah religiously.  She was not an Israelite, but a Phoenician, who brought her native religion of sea-goddess worship from the coast, where she was raised. She was a “Sidonian”, which is a biblical term for Phoenicians in general (1 Kings 16:31), and was the daughter of Eth-Baal, king of Tyre, the ancient Phoenician city in what is now Lebanon.  Both Tyre and Sidon are on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, north of Palestine. It is also recorded in the Bible that Jezebel put on eye makeup, and arranged her hair to beautify herself, which are behaviors often connected to flirting in Hebraic thinking. By these final actions of hers just before her death, she revealed her vanity and connection with the queen of the coast (2 King 9:30). You may not realize it, but there are still women in the world today in covens, who (like Jezebel) actually worship the sea goddess Asherah.  And even many Christian women today are ensnared by the same spirit that was in Jezebel, as they put on makeup and other artificial things that are the property of satan, in order to beautify themselves and attract men.

These evil marine spirits live in water in the spiritual world, and are a force to be reckoned with on earth. The marine world is a world of beauty and fashion, including makeup, earrings, jewelry, hair attachments, and flashy clothes. The queen of the coast is an evil spirit within the marine kingdom in charge of worldliness and immorality.  It has been said that the most powerful occultists (i.e. freemasonry/lodge members, satanists, shaman priests, some Yoga practitioners) can “breathe” under water and take orders there in connection with those evil spirits.  In fact, they even get presents that can materialize in this world!  But the name of the Lord Jesus Christ is more powerful than any marine spirit.  He has made a spectacle of them at the cross (Col 2:15).  Now through this revelation, He has exposed their identities once again, along with their secret agenda to deceive mankind and capture souls into hell.

I hope you will take this seriously and allow the lamp of the Lord's Spirit to search your heart and expose to you anything unholy or impure that must go, including worldly fashions, worldly hairstyles and adornments, and everything immoral, as well as immoral TV programs. Do not despise this prophetic utterance. But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil.  Through this message the Lord Jesus is seeking to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways. Therefore, repent for the kingdom of heaven is near. The Lord is coming back right away and He is purifying His Bride.  Let there be nothing in your life today that would dishonor or keep Him away. In His mercy, He has given this revelation, so that you might make yourself ready for the wedding of the Lamb upon His return.

*Footnote: The original Starbucks Coffee logo used from 1971 – 1987 was based on a two-tailed, bare-breasted mermaid, or siren, encircled by the store’s original name, "Starbucks Coffee, Tea, and Spice."  She was wearing a crown of stars on her head and holding her twin tails open in a seductive, spread-eagle pose. The coffee giant company was looking for a nautical theme to capture the spirit of Seattle, Washington on the west coast of the USA.  It was the intention of the original Starbucks founders to use the mermaid to represent the seduction of the sea going mariners. Mermaids were supposedly so seductive to sailors that they would jump out of boats once they heard the sirens' songs.  Some sailors who crossed paths with a siren would become so obsessed that they would crash into the rocks and die. Starbucks meant to imply that their addictive beverages were as irresistible as the sirens’ seductive songs. And in fact countless people have been seduced by the lure of their overpriced coffee. Starbucks now has $16.4B USD in revenue with 21,160 stores in 63 countries and territories. The current logo still has the same star-crowned mermaid, whose long hair now covers her bare breasts, but still shows their outline.  And many churches in the US have gotten into the practice of selling Starbucks coffee at their services in the cups with that immoral, idolatrous image on them.  People like being associated with Starbucks coffee, because it is considered hip, or fashionable. This shows how deeply the queen of the coast has deceived people, even in the church.

**Footnote: Incidentally, "Queen of Heaven" is a title given to Mary, the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, by the Roman Catholic Church, although no such title for Mary exists in the Bible.  The title is also used, to some degree, in Anglicanism, and Eastern Orthodoxy. It proves their idolatry and confirms the connection with Asherah, the queen of heaven, lady of the sea, who is part of the evil marine kingdom. The giant obelisk in Saint Peter's Square at the Roman Catholic Vatican, which is an occult phallic symbol shipped from Heliopolis, Egypt by the Roman emperor Caligula, provides further evidence of their idolatry.  It is positioned in the middle of a huge, eight-point sun wheel, a symbol used in pagan sun worship. In fact, one of the many titles the Roman Catholics give to Mary is "Our Lady of the Seas," and there is even a Catholic church called by that name in the Outerbanks of North Carolina, on the Eastern seacoast of the USA  You can even buy your own "Our Lady of the Seas" idol online, which is wearing a strapless gown with naked shoulders. If you are an adult, then you can Google search for "Mary Our Lady of the Seas images," and you will see the many such idols that they have for her. But be careful what you see, as there are many traps of the enemy. It's not difficult to see how idolatry of Mary is connected with the queen of the coast and her marine kingdom. (Also see Pagan Symbols of the Popes and Messages from the Lord for Catholics Worshiping Idols).

Author's note: Please prayerfully listen to this sister's testimony, and use the Testimony Review Process adopted by this blog, as you decide for yourself whether the Lord has spoken to her.  For issues and concerns, each person must confirm with the Lord, whether something is valid or not. If you are skeptical about this message, please read my A Warning to the Nay Sayers.  Pray for Rachael, too, so that she will boldly share her message. You are invited to read or listen to more amazing testimonies of the supernatural like this below, as well as Zipora Bitrus Testimony of Heaven and Hell, Zipporah Mushala's testimony of hell, Zipporah Mushala’s Second Testimony of Hell, A Trip to Hell, Carrying Your Cross or Cross Dressing?, and the ones listed below.

Do you want to know Him?
If you want to know Jesus, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Him.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.


Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"                                     _________________________________________________

A Warning for Married Christian Couples

Pastor Olugbenga Oladejo, Complete in Christ Church
Our Lord Jesus Christ has given a message of warning to a pastor named, Olugbenga Oladejo of Complete In Christ Church in Peterborough, England, which I would like to share with you today. It's important to note that this is a warning for Christian married couples, not for sinners.

I have spoken at length with him and listened to his heart as he shared his testimony of how the Lord saved him in 1990, then brought him back again from backsliding in 2008. He was the pastor of Safeway International Ministries in Edinburgh, Scottland before moving to England in 2013, where he is serving now.  I have also spoken to a church member in Edinburgh, named Christopher O., who still joins pastor Oladejo live each week for services via the internet. He spoke very highly of pastor Oladejo and described him as someone who is spiritually strong, who is not concerned with gathering large numbers of people to himself, but rather about proclaiming the Truth. Having searched the Scriptures, and done our due diligence to verify his godly character, my wife and I both believe with certainty that this message is from the Lord. 

In March 2014, Pastor Oladejo was taken to hell and shown a department of hell where demons are torturing the souls of deceased Christians, who defiled their marriage bed.  They are chopping people up like a butcher chops up an animal into little pieces, and then their bodies are reconstituting. They were doing it slowly and painfully to achieve the maximum amount of pain and torment.  The souls are weeping and mourning, while the demons are laughing and taking pleasure in what they are doing to these people.

The Lord told pastor Oladejo that His children are confused, so they must be warned about these sins that are taking them to hell, so they will not perish.  He visually showed him these people's sins on the "judgment screen" and audibly warned against married couples masturbating on their beds, looking at pornography, oral sex, trying different styles of sexual intercourse to "spice it up," such as "doggie style" penetration from behind, and various positions, including the wife on top (e.g., so-called "rocking horse," "cowboy," or "cowgirl" positions), and hanging your wife (a type of domination and bondage position, involving tying her down, intended to simulate rape). He said the only position that is holy in God's sight is the face-to-face position with the husband on top.

The Scriptures the Lord gave the pastor were first of all Isaiah 33:14, which says: "The sinners in Zion are terrified; trembling grips the godless: 'Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire? Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning?'” He said that hell is so terrible that once you see it, you will not ask any questions. If they told you to stand up for the rest of your life, you would never want to sit down again, if it meant you would avoid going to that place for eternity.

The second Scripture is Isaiah 24:4-5, which says, "The land suffers for the sins of its people. The earth languishes, the crops wither, the skies refuse their rain. The land is defiled by crime; the people have twisted the laws of God and broken his everlasting commands."  The Lord said there are ordinances in the Scriptures about relations between a husband and a wife, and His children have violated these ordinances.

If you read your Bible properly, as Jesus said through this pastor to do, you will know the truth. You cannot dismiss this by saying that it is not written in the Bible how a man and his wife are to properly have sex. It is the same as smoking cigarettes. The Bible does not say smoking cigarettes is sin, but we know intuitively that it is (also see Alcohol and Cigarettes -- Ten Divine Revelations). If you read the Scriptures the Lord gave this pastor and pray for Light to be shed in your heart, God will show you.  The Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth.

Adam Knew Eve
For one thing, as he taught in both videos, the Scripture says, "Then Adam had sexual intercourse with Eve his wife, and she conceived and gave birth to a son." (Gen 4:1a). It does not say Eve lay with Adam or that Eve had sexual intercourse with Adam, or that Eve knew Adam.  It was Adam who "knew" Eve intimately.

If you doubt whether this can be used to teach us as married couples how to have sexual intercourse, then let me remind you of the passage in Genesis that Jesus used to teach against divorce.  When the Pharisees came and asked Him whether it was lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason, He asked them what Moses commanded.  They replied that Moses told them to give her a certificate of divorce, and they seemed to view that as God's commandment about marriage and divorce.  However, Jesus corrected them and said,

"Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore god has joined together, let no man separate." (Mat 19:4-6)

Jesus went on to tell them that the reason Moses permitted them to divorce their wives was because their hearts were hardened.  He said, "But from the beginning it has not been this way. And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery." (Mat 19:8-9)

So just as Jesus used Genesis 2:22-24 to teach against divorce, He is also using Genesis 4:1 to teach us how to make love to our wives.

The Husband is the Head of the Wife
Secondly, the Word teaches us that the husband is the head of the wife. "For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior." (Eph 5:23; cf. 1 Cor 11:3).  He is supposed to love his wife as Christ loved the Church, not lust after her.  He is supposed to take the lead in the relationship, including in the marital bed.  His wife is not supposed to be the aggressor or the one taking the lead.  She is the responder to his love.

The Man is the Image and the Glory of God
Thirdly, in pastor Oladejo's video Warning to Married Couples Who Practice Oral Sex, he stated that the Lord told him to say, “Men are my image and men are my glory! Men are the glory of God.  And every time God is looking at you, He wants you to continue to promote more of His glory. If you now change the glory of God into something that is corruptible, into lust, into immorality, the Lord said you will not make it into heaven.”  The Lord said, “If you are doing oral sex, you are not coming to heaven.” And the same goes for other immoral acts you do on your bed.  Do not do these things.  It is evil before the Lord.

The Scriptures the Lord gave him with regard to this were 1 Cor 11:7 and Rom 1:23.

"A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man." (1 Cor 11:7).

Men “exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.” (Rom 1:23).

Pastor Oladejo said the Lord told him he should tell you that if you change the glory of God to look like corruptible man or to look like birds, or four-footed beasts, you are not going to come to heaven. You are changing the glory of God into dogs, goats, cows, animals, and into creeping things. You are committing immorality. It's a great sin. It doesn't matter if you are a pastor, bishop, or archbishop. You are not going to make it. Do not change the glory of God into anything on your matrimonial bed or you are not going to heaven. 

The Missionary Position the Only One Holy
Fourthly, it is well known what the "missionary position" is and why it is called that, for the reason this pastor explained.  Missionaries of old who taught their converts about true holiness would teach them that in the marriage bed, face to face with the husband on top is the only position that God has sanctioned. That is a landmarker or boundary stone that was laid by people before this evil generation was born that you and I who live today are a part of.  That was a boundary stone.  We have moved that stone, so we could try new things to fulfill our lusts.  We need to Ask for the Ancient Paths.

I realize that many will balk at this teaching, saying it is unbiblical.  However, a recent research article on penile fractures published in the medical journal, Advances in Urology,  stated in conclusion: "Our study supports the fact that sexual intercourse with 'woman on top' is the potentially riskiest sexual position related to penile fracture" [1]. 

The study examined the cases of forty-four men who attended three hospitals in the city of Campinas, Brazil for suspected penile fractures. Twenty-eight fractures were sustained during heterosexual intercourse, four during homosexual sex, and six after "penile manipulation." Fourteen were in the "woman on top" position, which was the most common position, eight were using “doggy style” with the woman on all fours, and four in which the the cause remained unclear.  Half of the patients reported hearing a "cracking sound" and experiencing pain at the moment of injury. All of these cases were treated on an emergency surgery basis.  Two of them later suffered from erectile dysfunction, following the injury, and one of them was treated by penile prosthesis.

The reason given in the report for the "woman on top" being the most dangerous position was that "...when woman is on top she usually controls the movement with her entire body weight landing on the erect penis, not being able to interrupt it when the penis suffers a wrong way penetration, because the harm is usually minor in woman with no pain but major in the penis." On the other hand, the report stated, "When the man is controlling the movement, he has better chances of stopping the penetration energy in response to the pain related to the penis harm, minimising it."  Therefore, medical science has actually confirmed the wisdom of God's ordinance concerning the missionary position, as well as the risks involved in using other positions and practicing penile manipulation. 

The Marriage Bed Must Be Kept Pure
Fifth, it says in the Bible, "Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral." (Heb 13:4).

You can defile the marriage bed by acts you commit by yourself, acts you commit with someone other than your spouse, acts you commit using pornography or other property of satan, and acts you commit with your spouse.  The things the Lord has warned us against in this revelation, some of which I mentioned in the opening, are considered acts of immorality in God's sight. 

A Fruit of the Spirit, Not an Act of the Flesh
Sixth, what we do on the marriage bed must not be an act of the flesh to satisfy the desires of the sinful nature, as Paul said in Galatians 5:

"For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another. But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit." (Gal 5:13-25)

If you are fulfilling the lusts of the flesh, you cannot at the same time be producing the fruit of the Spirit.  The flesh can never produce the fruit of the Spirit and can never please God. On the other hand, the Holy Spirit will never fulfill the desires of the sinful nature.  The flesh and the Spirit are absolutely opposed to one another.  They are mutually exclusive. Pastor Oladejo says, "The marital bed is for matrimonial love.  If it is not for matrimonial love, then it is sin."

All Things Decently and in Order
Seventh, in the house of God, all things must be done decently and in order. When Michael Shigaba testified of his encounter with Jesus, he stated:

"He [Jesus] said I should open to 1 Corinthians 14:40. It talks about doing things decently and in order. He [Jesus] said, 'Heaven is an orderly place, a decent place. But some people are doing things anyhow in the House of God.' He said, 'In My House.' They are doing things anyhow!"

We as Christians must do all things decently and in order, including what we do in our marriage bed.

The Straight and Narrow Path
Eighth, the way of heaven is straight.  I have learned this from the Word, as well as other divine revelations.  It is literally a straight and narrow path, as the Lord revealed so clearly in Michael Shigaba's Encounter with Jesus.  It is straighter, narrower, and more difficult than most Christians realize.  We must Strive to Enter the Kingdom of God.

As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet: “A voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him. Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth.'" (Lk 3:4-5)

"They have left the straight way and wandered off to follow the way of Balaam son of Bezer, who loved the wages of wickedness." (2 Pe 2:15)

"Who have left the straight paths to walk in dark ways," (Prov 2:13)

"I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths." (Prov 4:11)

"In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." (Prov 3:6)

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." (Mt 7:13-14)

"Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to." (Lk 13:24)

Also see Deu. 32:5; Psa. 18:26; 125:5; Pro. 2:15; 8:8; 17:20; 21:8; 28:6,18; Isa. 59:8; Acts 13:10; Php. 2:15.

The way of heaven is not crooked or deviant.  The road that leads to life is not lustful or perverse.  It is loving and holy.  The problem is that if our hearts are not full of love, then we rely on lust to generate excitement in the marriage bed.  What we (husbands and wives) need is to be cleansed and purged of all lust and be filled with the love of God for one another.  Then we will experience making love the way God intended it to be.

Watch the Videos Yourself
I urge you to watch all three videos yourself and prayerfully consider what the pastor says.  Please don't make any final decision about this matter until you have done so, since I have only summarized him, and it would not be fair to base your decision on only what I have written without hearing him yourself.



Second Warning to Married Couples

Warning to Married Couples Who Practice Oral Sex

Scriptural Basis
The following are a few more Scriptures, in addition to those referenced earlier in this post:

"Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry." (Col 3:5, NIV).

"It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God;" (1 Thes 4:3-5, NIV).

"Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart." (1 Tim 2:22, KJV)

"Let all things be done decently and in order." (1 Co 14:40, KJV).

"For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God." (Rom 8:5-8)

"So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh-- for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live." (Rom 8:12-13)

Also see 1 Pe 1:14-16,22; 2:11,16; 3:7; 4:1-5,7-8,17-18.

Clarifications
After watching the videos, I contacted pastor Oladejo, and received further clarification from him on some of the things he said in his messages.

Hanging Your Spouse
In the videos, he mentioned "hanging" your spouse during sexual intercourse (see Video 1 at 13:33 - 13:36 and Video 2 at 11:12).  He clarified this for me by stating that he meant couples who engage in extreme sexual positions by using sex equipment to make their wives helpless, such as tying them to a bed, so it looks like the wife is being raped.  He said, "Some Christians do extreme sexual positions seen in the pornography and buy equipment to make them look like their wives are helpless or being hanged [or] raped when they have relationships. Such things are great wickedness before the Lord."

Masturbating
He also clarified that when he warns against masturbation, it is not only something you do to yourself. It includes masturbating one's spouse to arousal or orgasm. This is consistent with the dictionary definition. He stated, "Do not use your hand to stimulate anyone to orgasm. It is masturbation done on you by your partner rather than yourself." He warned, "Manual stimulation is masturbation. It is a sin."

In fact, the word masturbate comes from two root words that mean "hand" and "defile".

"Touching your wife lovingly is not a sin, but it becomes a sin when she feels like you are masturbating her. Our hands are not meant for such an act.  If your wife touches you such that you release without penetration, that is a great sin, so we need to be careful...I want to be very clear that when I refer to ‘touching your wife lovingly,’ it is not masturbating her for arousal. I do not say a man should do that.  The Lord told me He detests all forms of masturbation."

A Message from the Lord, Not Man
He also clarified for me that he did not come up with this list of sins himself.  He stated, "I did not know that these things were sins myself until the night I saw this revelation. There was one thing that shocked me when I was standing in front of the judgment screen, the sin of masturbation, which is basically using your hand to bring your spouse to orgasm, appeared on the screen...I was told that God disapproves masturbation, even if it is done on you by your partner."

"I did not come up with a list of sins, but what I was told and shown on the screen. You see the voice of the Lord is audible once you cross to the other side. When he speaks, no one will tell you before you know that Jesus is speaking. So the Lord spoke to me in my mind, and I did not even need to ask, because I know it was the Lord."

He added, "I have waited six months to share this revelation. First, I gain nothing by sharing it. It is the hardest part of God's work that He gave me to do. I have struggled with the Lord asking Him to even allow me just to teach this from the Scriptures instead of sharing the revelation, but He told me He would ask the blood from me (of those who go to hell because I did not share the revelation). What He told me is to warn people, and when I obeyed I felt His peace and presence. So, this is not an amazing dream but a divine revelation. I heard heavenly hymns and songs the day I shared this revelation."

Medical and Physical Health Limitations
There are certain, specific cases in which it is impossible to have sexual intercourse with the man on top. After reading this article, one brother submitted a question about that very issue asking, "What if because of medical or physical restrictions, the only way a couple could have sex is if the man was on the bottom?"

When we initially posted this article and began to receive such questions about medical/physical limitations, my wife and I prayed and asked the Lord how to answer them.  We also contacted pastor Oladejo to see if the Lord spoke to him about that. While we were waiting for a response from him, my wife was given Numbers 9:6-13.  In the context, the Lord had told the Israelites to celebrate the Passover on the fourteenth day of the first month.  Then it says:

But there were some men who were unclean because of the dead person, so that they could not observe Passover on that day; so they came before Moses and Aaron on that day. Those men said to him, "Though we are unclean because of the dead person, why are we restrained from presenting the offering of the LORD at its appointed time among the sons of Israel?" Moses therefore said to them, "Wait, and I will listen to what the LORD will command concerning you." Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, "Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'If any one of you or of your generations becomes unclean because of a dead person, or is on a distant journey, he may, however, observe the Passover to the LORD. 'In the second month on the fourteenth day at twilight, they shall observe it; they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. 'They shall leave none of it until morning, nor break a bone of it; according to all the statute of the Passover they shall observe it. 'But the man who is clean and is not on a journey, and yet neglects to observe the Passover, that person shall then be cut off from his people, for he did not present the offering of the LORD at its appointed time. That man will bear his sin. (Num 9:6-13)

If you are thinking about taking an exception, you ought to read that passage. The Lord commanded Moses how and when to celebrate the Passover Feast.  However, some people came to Moses and said they were unclean because they had touched a dead person, yet they wanted to celebrate the feast at its appointed time with everyone else. When Moses prayed about it, the Lord made an exception for them and those who were on a journey at the time of Passover, allowing them to celebrate the feast exactly thirty days later. But the Lord warned that they must observe it according to the statute and not change anything else.  He strictly warned that if anyone who is clean or not on a journey neglects to observe the Passover at the appointed time as the Lord commanded -- in other words, if they take the exception when they are not qualified for it, that person shall be cut off from his people and bear his sin. The same thing applies to anyone who changes the ordinance of God on their marriage bed, who is not truly qualified for an exception.

"Every man's way is right in his own eyes, But the LORD weighs the hearts." (Pro 21:2)

After we received from the Lord that passage in Numbers, we also received a response by email from Pastor Oladejo, who replied: "Concerning the questions about people with medical/physical needs, such as stroke patients, I have asked the Lord after my encounter, and received an answer. If it is physically impossible to have sex normally, and therefore, you change the ordinance of God, the Lord told me He would judge you righteously.”

"However, the Lord told me that He knows men that they will say they have one need or the other that made this impossible for them to obey. He told me then that such claims must be true and honest. If you are unable to have sex normally because of medical/physical needs then you have not sinned. But He said that men would hide under this disguise in order to disobey His law. The Lord told me He knows the heart of men."

"The Lord told me he does not like abstinence from sex. Please tell those abstaining they should come together for sex as regularly as they want with each other. God designed sex for us to enjoy and not to abstain.  It is the will of God to have regular sex with your partner. The Lord wants us to take Lust and masturbation out of our marital bed."

"At no time did the Lord say He would make exceptions for strange sex like oral sex, masturbation, or vibrators, etc."

To further emphasize the key points of what pastor Oladejo has stated, the Lord showed him that; a) He does grant exceptions for married couples with medical/physical limitations. He will judge righteously; b) He does not want any married couple to abstain from sex, but wants them to come together and enjoy each other.  c) However, it is imperative that man does not dishonestly claim to be qualified for the exceptions given by God to those with medical/physical limitations. If he claims this exception when it is not really true, and changes the ordinance of God to fulfill his lusts, the Lord knows the man's heart and will hold him accountable for that sin of disobedience.  He will judge righteously. d) He will not grant exceptions for strange sex.

WARNING: In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this warning: Do not take this exception for yourself unless you truly and honestly qualify for it. Your eternal soul and that of your spouse is at stake.

Lusting After Your Spouse
With regard to lustful feelings of excitement toward one's spouse, pastor Oladejo clarified, "Lust is a demon and should not be found on the marital bed. God expects us to have sex in love and not lust. We can have sex out of love, so why would we want sex out of lust as a Christian?"

Personal Lubricant
Lastly, in response to my inquiry, he said, “[Personal] lubricant and condoms were never shown to me as sin at all.”

I hope these clarifications help remove any questions you may have about what he meant.

Confirmations
On December 19, nearly three weeks after posting this article, I had been working with pastor Oladejo on the clarifications, which we had added to the original article, and he made this statement in an email:

"I have read the article again and have been praying to the Lord. Two nights ago I saw an angel of the Lord in my room telling me to continue with this work. The Lord seriously warned that those who are thinking of breaking His ordinances because of medical/physical reasons should be warned that he will judge them righteously." [Editor's note: This confirmed what the Lord had previously told pastor Oladejo, and which we had already added to this article about exceptions and the Lord judging righteously. However, since this angelic visitation, I have now added the Lord's serious warning to the end of that section about exceptions, and I have added the passage from Numbers, which I originally omitted for the sake of space.]

He continued, "Also concerning manual stimulation to reach organism, beloved brother, the Lord has confirmed it to me again that it is a sin. It is masturbation performed on a woman by her husband. We have gone far in lust on our marital bed but the Lord wants us to come back to love."

On December 24, 2014, I received the following email from Pastor Oladejo:

"Beloved Brother Len, Jesus Christ is being glorified and will be glorified again and again. All glory to His holy name. I am sorry I could not speak to you last night. I felt a heavy sleep and I struggled even to finish my night prayers and I slept off.

"In my sleep I heard a voice of an angel telling me I have messages from the Lord. The message was delivered and it was a voice speaking to me:

'I am pleased with the article written in the blog and I am pleased about the warning that was re-echoed to mankind about taking exceptions.'

"Then I noticed that two other messages were opened, and they were both voices speaking to me, and when I heard them they were two Bible passages: Jude 3 and 1 Thessalonians 4:7.

"Then I heard the voice saying: 'Earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints for God has not called us unto uncleanness but unto holiness.'  These words were continuously read in my ears for a long time as I lost count of how many times it was said.

"After that I heard the voice saying: 'Many of my servants have ignored my warnings to keep holiness on their matrimonial bed, because they enjoy their sins and are afraid to lose membership of their church, so they compromised. Tell them to repent. I am interested in holiness both in the open and in your secrets places.'

"After this the message started again: 'Earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints for God has not called us unto uncleanness but unto holiness.' This was continued until I woke up.

"Beloved brother Len, the Lord is happy. All glory to His holy name.
God bless you.
Pastor Oladejo"

If you need further confirmation about these things, then check out Robert Brownell's Little Lessons on his Divine Revelations website. He stated in lesson number forty, "Keep oral and anal sex out of a marriage. These defile you.  In a dream, I was shown an oral sex demon, it was absolutely disgusting, believe me you don't want anything to do with its sin. The desire for oral sex is usually the desire for someone to physically worship you. Stay away from it.  Keep the spirits of domination and bondage out of a marriage bed also. Also, when a person masturbates, they are having sex with a demon and don't know it."  That is not a recent comment of his, but has been posted for quite some time. After I shared this present article with him about the Warning for Christian Married Couples given to pastor Oladejo, he replied, "I've concluded the same things that he talks about, in my fifteen years of marriage"

Another confirmation is from a Hungarian sister in Christ, named Eudoxia Varga, who received a divine revelation of heaven and hell. She was shown a demon in hell, who is deceiving people who are alive on earth, so that they will commit that sin of masturbation and go to that unimaginably terrible place of eternal torment. Eudoxia stated, "There was another room. We went on. And there was a very big bed in it. And I found it strange, because there was a very beautiful woman lying on that bed. And I was even looking at her that, 'Oh, how beautiful she is!' But it really, it wasn’t normal what she looked like, how beautiful she was. Then I saw that she started to do things with herself. Well, I don’t want to use that word. And, she did it—that sin. You understand it. Then she woke up and went to the [devil's] council chamber and started to say whom she deceived. And that was horrible, that even children were in it. And she said, 'And even Christians.' And she started to laugh with an evil laugh. And she praised and kissed the lips of satan. And as she was laughing, there came snakes from her mouth. And as she was laughing, the lust and dirt just came out of her mouth. Literally, the lust and dirt just flowed out of her mouth. And she immediately went to report to satan...And as this woman was pleasing herself in the bed, she was casting spells as she did it. 'There are people,' the Lord said, 'who don’t want to do it, but they do it because they’re in bondage.' This is when she’s casting spells upon them. And if he doesn’t want to do it, he still does it, because he’s in bondage. This is horrible."

Another confirmation is in the "A Trip to Hell" video that I wrote about, in which they saw by divine revelation that there are people being tormented in hell for masturbating.

I have also written about our Zambian sister, Rachael Mushala's Testimony of Hell, in which she stated, "I was in my room one night when The Lord showed me a section in hell for those who masturbate. This section was dreary and desolate. I saw a woman on a chair. She was chained with large chains to the chair on which she was sitting, and she couldn't move at all! This woman was burnt beyond recognition. All that had remained of her body looked like ash.  She was completely gray, charred, and seemed to be in great agony. I then was made to understand she was there for masturbating during her life on earth. I believe the Lord showed me that, because He wants to use it to reach those who are caught in this sin."

These are but a few examples I can cite for you, aside from the many Scriptures calling for sexual purity, some of which I have already mentioned.

A Word to the Skeptic
I would like to just briefly address the skeptic who may be reading this.  I cannot possibly address all possible doubts any skeptic may have, but let me respond to two possible questions:

1. Where in God's word does it explain how to properly have marital sex?

There are many Scriptures that apply to this, including those that directly speak of intercourse (eg., Gen 4:1a; Lev 15:33; 18:19; 20:18), as well as many more that speak indirectly, such as all the ones I mentioned in this article.

In other words, if the Bible tells me that I must love my neighbor, I can assume that this command applies in all situations at all times, including on the marriage bed.  Or I can try to justify myself and ask, "Who is my neighbor?" (Lk 10:29).  So Scriptures that admonish us to do all things in decency and order, flee youthful lusts, to pursue holiness, to flee from immorality, to love our wives as Christ loved the Church are all applicable in every aspect of life, not just the ones that don't have to do with sex.  And by the way, speaking of the way Christ loved the Church, He never lusts after His Church.  He loves her in such a way as to give Himself up for her, making her holy, and cleansing her. May the Lord help us be like Him in this world.

2. This revelation implies that even though we do not know or understand that something is sinful, we will still end up in hell despite having faith in Christ to save us.  How can that be so?

This is basic Truth as recorded in Scripture.

In Leviticus 5:15-18, it speaks about unintentional sins.  But look especially at verse 17, which says, "If anyone sins and does what is forbidden in any of the Lord’s commands, even though they do not know it, they are guilty and will be held responsible."  Our civil laws in society are the same; ignorance of the law is no excuse for violating it, and they will still punish you anyway.

In Romans 2, Paul addresses this.  Especially look at verses 12-16.  In verse 12, he says, "All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law."  So if you haven't heard that something is against God's law, because you don't have the law, you will still perish if you don't repent and ask forgiveness.

It's called ignorance.  "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." (Hos 4:6).  When it comes to sin, ignorance is not bliss.

Most people who are living in sin, whether they call themselves a Christian or not, they often do not know that they are living in sin.  I mean, in their hearts when they first began doing it, they knew it was wrong.  But they rejected the truth and bought a lie, so God gave them over to unclean spirits (Rom 1:24-25; Prov 1:20-33).  This is called deception.  The devil is a master of deception, so he deceives humanity into thinking that what they are doing is not sin (Gen 3:1-7; Jn 8:44).  The nature of deception is that if you knew you were deceived, you would no longer be deceived. If people realized that what they were doing was sin, and that it would take them to hell, many would repent.  Others still would not, because their hearts are already so hardened that they can no longer repent.  That's why it is so important not to harden your heart if you hear His voice today (Heb 3:8,15; 4:7).

When you speak to non-believers about Christ, you find that they are ignorant of the fact that they are living in sin and going to hell.  But that doesn't change the fact that they are living in sin and going to hell.  Just because someone doesn't know or believe something does not alter the truth of the matter.  That's why it is important to read the Bible, which exposes the Sins That Will Keep You From Heaven.

And lastly, God will not repent or confess your sin for you.  This is something you must do yourself.  It is a condition for forgiveness (see 1 Jn 1:9; Mk 1:15; Ac 2:38; 2 Tim 2:19).  You cannot be forgiven if you do not repent.  This is why repentance is an essential part of salvation initially, and on an ongoing basis.  A daily life of repentance is the shortest path to God's mercy.  Therefore, if you are still struggling with this message, I recommend reading A Warning to the Nay Sayers and Restored Truth.
 
Putting it All Together
The Lord began speaking to me two years ago about the need for purity and holiness in the marriage bed, and had already convicted me of certain things He was not pleased with, from which I then repented at that time. This message provided a confirmation that I have indeed heard from God, and also gave me further warnings that I needed to hear at this time.  I do not question this revelation for a moment.  I am positively sure the devil did not give this pastor this revelation.  The devil is the inventor of these evil things, so why would he want to warn us not to do them.

For those who say this is legalism, I will respond to you as the late brother Leonard Ravenhill once said, “When there's something in the Bible that churches don't like, they call it legalism.” And I will add that "legalistic" is often defined as "anyone who follows the commandments closer than I do."

I have done my part in warning you.  As the pastor said, I have cleared myself by warning you, regardless of what you decide to do with it.  I counsel you that we have been led astray by those who have told us that whatever a married couple does together that they both enjoy is fine with God.  That is not true.  It is the devil's deception.

During our engagement period, eighteen years ago, my wife and I read a book by Dr. Ed and Gaye Wheat, called Intended for Pleasure: Sex Technique and Sexual Fulfillment in Christian Marriage; and we now see that much of what he taught was not from God. God is holy and all His ways are holy.  He does not approve of immoral practices, evil acts, lust, or worldliness in the marriage bed of His children.  Anyone performing masturbation and oral sex will not see God, as this is a serious sin before the Lord.  The Lord will will judge all men righteously. Therefore, if you care about your own soul and the soul of your spouse, I urge you to repent and cry out to God for mercy.

If you are a minister who has ignored the Lord's warnings to keep holiness on your matrimonial bed, because you enjoy your sins and are afraid to lose members from your church or supporters from your ministry, and you have compromised, then repent. The Lord is interested in holiness both in the open and in your secrets places. Prepare to meet your God.

Do you want to know Him?
If you want to know Jesus, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Him. 

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.


Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
