7th Day : And when your body has desires?
Hello to all cybernauts!
It is a pleasure to be here with you. Today is the 7th day of the Fast.
Many people have commented here on the blog and I am very happy in knowing a “little bit” about you guys!
There are some questions that you have asked that I will answer during the Fast…
Today’s theme is this: “And when my body has desires?”
Accompany me in the book of 1 Thessalonians, chapter 4, verse 3:
“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 the passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong to take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who fives you His Holy Spirit.”
(Thessalonians 4: 3-8)
God’s Will is that we stay “separated”. Being holy, sanctified, is to be separate of sin.
When you live in sin, there will always exist doubt, accusations, fear; there will always be an imbalance in your part. That is why God teaches us to separate from sin. And who does this is the individual themselves!
He says the following:
“…that you should avoid sexual immorality;…”
(1 Thessalonians 4: 3)
You have to refrain from that desire of sexual immorality, prostitution, which means:
- Sexual relations before marriage
- Illicit sexual relations: when a person is married and practices anal sex
- And even sexual relations with animals
All of this are things that do not please God! Things that aren’t holy and that don’t make you secure. Moreover, these wrong attitudes bring illness. When God says to be holy and to separate yourself from prostitution, from these carnal desires, it is for your own good!
“…that each of you should learn to control your own body…”
(1 Thessalonians 4: 4)
You are the one that is responsible for your own body!
“…learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable…”
(1 Thessalonians 4: 5)
There are many single people, and even couples, that are interested in someone. So they dress in a sensual manner, to attract attention. This is what it means to lust, to have a lustful desire! To desire what is prohibited, sensual pleasure, sensuality… When someone lives in desire, in prostitution, in their mind, in their thoughts, they are focused in one objective. Which is it? To satisfy themselves! To satisfy their carnal desires. Naturally, all human beings have their nature, but there are moments and situations that a person turns to their desires, in other words, they feed their desires and provoke sensuality; what doesn’t please God!
“… not in the passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong to take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who fives you His Holy Spirit.”
(1 Thessalonians 4: 5-8)
Do you want to receive the Holy Spirit, have a clean conscious? You have to distance yourself from what is wrong, of what is “dirty”, of what takes away your honor, of what makes you lose your merits before the devil! Why? Because you are allied with him!
So, be holy! You are the one that has to control your own body and be sanctified and have honor, and not for disgrace and dishonor…
You are in this Fast of 21 days, and you have this “ardent” desire to serve God? So “take away from your head” these thoughts that separate you from God!
If it is this boy or your desire to attract attention, it is because you do not have an objective of receiving the Holy Spirit! Your focus is on attracting the attention of that boy… Everything depends on what you want!
Do you want to receive the Holy Spirit? So you will have to “pay” a “high price” for It! The Holy Spirit is not for those who want to live their life supported by their own desires, but for those who want to sacrifice! They “trade in” everything that they possess, they “lose everything” to “buy” that which is divine, honorable, and respected which is the Spirit of God in their life!
My cybernaut friends, I hope you understood. Distance yourself from that which is has made you full of doubts, fear, of inconsistency… Hate that spirit of sexual immorality! These desires are what have made you distant from God.

We will end here for today and tomorrow we will be back!
A big Hug!
