    My sexual sins quenched the Holy Spirit. Will He come back?

    I'd like to share my testimony as a warning to other believers. You can get in a lot of trouble with the Lord over habitual sexual sin that you refuse to give up. Thanks for reading.

    Quenching the Holy Spirit - My Testimony

    I was an extremely rebellious teenager and my rebellion was against what I thought was excessive authority from my dad and a generational spirit of rejection passed down to me. My dad expected a lot of good success from me, but along with it there came a lot of demands. My dad did not really know how to display affection or acceptance. I did not realize it then, but now I know my dad really loved me. He just wasn't able to show it, and he really did over do it on authority. Somewhere around the age of 16 I rebelled, and I mean I rebelled in full force--even running red lights in front of cops to prove I wasn't going to submit to any authority anymore. This was a huge error in judgment that I can only blame myself for. I guess the "inner healing" ministries would call it a "bitter root judgment". Jesus was speaking to me though. I knew what I craved more than anything in my life was unconditional love. But my problem is that I was not able to submit to the Lord fearing more authority that I could not live up to. Satan came to take the seeds from the hard ground at the age of 16 in my life. Never quite able to completely surrender to the Lord, I began to have a problem with demonic spirits at the age of 20. There were voices harassing me in my mind and a distracting spirit that played music in my mind all the time. When this happened I began to seek the Lord will all my heart and my might. I went through the usual thing that Satan does when he tells new Christians that they committed the unpardonable sin. I struggled for a few years, and I thought that God might have already sentenced me to hell. I had intense attacks of demonic fear and my heart would take of racing, etc. I eventually stabilized, and the Holy Spirit began to touch me and comfort me and lead and guide me. But I continued to have this problem with the demonic spirits. When I was about 22 or 23 years old, I was walking down University Ave over by TCU (Texas Christian University) here in Ft. Worth. I didn't have a car. I began to explain to the Lord in frustration that I had done everything the Lord told me to do, but that I still suffered from the harassing demonic spirits. I had a vision from the Lord--only one of two I have ever had in my life. It was something I saw very clear in my mind. There was this giant man about 9 feet tall sitting in a chair. I could not see his face. All I saw was this little child trying to climb up into his lap, and the child was trying to pull himself up by jumping up onto the man's thigh. I didn't get it immediately, but a few days later I realized the Lord was saying, "Come to me as a little trusting child". I had a problem trusting anyone and submitting to any authority. I was afraid to.

    OK, at the age of 28 I was still a virgin. I wasn't a bad looking guy, and I had a good personality--football player in high school and the whole bit. A lot of cute Christian girls wanted to go out with me. But, I began to reason in my mind that it would be impossible for me to have a relationship with a woman because of the demonic problem in my mind. I had also been into porn pretty much ever since I was a teenager. At 28, my first sexual experience was with a prostitute. There began a 2-week cycle of sin in my life for the next 25 years.

    I would binge on porn (back in the 80s & 90s it was VHS tapes) for a few hours. I could feel the demonic spirits enter my mind. Then I would go out and act it out with a female prostitute. The next couple of days I would be physically sick and get a severe headache for up to 16 hours. I would feel like a vegetable and many times there were demonic hallucinations in my mind. Movies of snakes swimming in my mind and other bizarre things that I wont even bother to describe. Around the 4th or 5th day my mind would be begin to clear, and I would feel like I was alive again--kind of like being back from the dead. Around day 9 or 10, I would pretty much be back to my normal self. And my normal self was a guy who spent a LOT of time on my knees in prayer to the Lord. I had a close intimate relationship with the Lord. The Lord would comfort me by His Holy Spirit. The Lord would guide me and lead me in all areas of my life. The Lord would show me things that would happen in the future, and I had a great intercessory prayer ministry. It was a thrill to see so many prayers answered on behalf of other believers. Here are just a few examples of the things I remember about the Holy Spirit moving in my life. I'm only going to list them because some people don't think I was ever even a Christian with this much sin in my life.

    In 1981, at the age of 24, I went to take the SAT test at a high school here in Ft. Worth, TX. There was a very cute young lady there that didn't feel well because she had spent the night before out drinking with her friends. She told the administrator that she wasn't feeling well enough to take the test. The administrator walked off for just a minute to attend to something else. During that time I prayed so fervently to the Lord, and I prayed that this very important moment in this girl's life would not be taken from her. The administrator came back and wanted to confirm with the girl that she wasn't going to take the test. The girl said she was feeling better now, and she would be able to take the test. She finished the whole test. Back then I think the SAT was about a 3 or 4 hour test.

    In 1989 when I was about 33, I was driving to a Steven Curtis Chapman concert at a place in Euless, TX called Footloose. It was a Christian entertainment type thing that isn't there anymore. Anyway, I had been praying for a while to the Lord that I might be able to meet a Latina type woman. I know that may sound weird, but I have always been attracted to petite dark-haired or brunette women. Maybe I just felt inferior dating a "normal" white girl. I guess that had something to do with it. Anyway, when I was about 1 mile from Footloose, the Lord spoke to me (not audibly) as clearly as ever and He asked, "You want a Latina girl?" I'm telling you that's what He said. I arrived at the concert and took a seat towards the back in the middle section before the concert started. I was sitting by myself. Sometime just before the concert started, I noticed there was this really cute petite Latina type girl sitting next to me on my right. I had been sitting by myself, but the place had begun to really fill up. This girl had the whole Latina look with the blue jeans and bright red shoes and dark hair, etc. She was about 5'1" tall and probably weighed about 100 lbs. I talked to her off and on during the concert. She was from Nicaragua and her family had just came to the United States during the Contra freedom fighter thing that was happening in Nicaragua during the Reagan Presidency. She thought she didn't speak good English, but she really spoke good English. She was an adorable girl. She was 21 years old. During the concert this girl kept bumping into me too which I thought was unusual. I know you may think this is funny, but it's true. When the concert was over I stayed in my seat for a while because I wanted to wait for the crowd to die down before I left, and I also wanted to buy a couple albums. This girl got up to leave with the people she came with. As she was waiting in the line to get out the door, she kept looking over at me like, "you moron aren't you even going to ask me for my phone number?" Unfortunately I had on my mind what I was going to do in Dallas after I left the concert which was not good. It wasn't until a while afterward that I actually realized what had happened and what the Lord spoke to me just before I got to the concert that night. The thing is, I wanted to do things my way (illicit) by going to Dallas instead of the Lord's way which was to start a relationship with this beautiful girl I had met at this concert. She was what I had requested (physically anyway) in prayer, but I was too stupid or whatever to trust the Lord in this situation. I wanted to handle things my way.

    Around 1990, I told a 28 year old female friend of mine that if she was really ready to be married, I could have her married in 6 months. She met a guy at a Bible study neither one of them were even planning to go to, and about 6 months later they were married.

    In 1995 I was sitting in the back of Calvary Cathedral International church in downtown Ft. Worth, and I prayed as earnestly as ever, "Lord I wish a tornado would come through here and destroy all this". I prayed that because I believed that the "laughter movement" from when Rodney Howard-Brown was there 3 years ago had just gotten out of control. I don't question however that it was a very real movement of God and a blessing to the church. Also, the acoustics in that round building were horrible because of so much reverberation. Well, five years later that is what happened. A tornado touched down and stayed over the church for 2.5 minutes. The building was destroyed, but not a single person was hurt. The church was fully staffed at the time. They bought another church about 3 miles away that used to be Midtown Church of Christ.

    In 2000, I was at a Wendy's restaurant in Bellevue, WA. There was much political debate at work about the next president. As I sat there in Oct/2000 with my absentee ballot, I voted for Pat Buchanan which I was planning to do all along. The Lord spoke to me in the most poignant way ever, and He asked, "Are you sure you really want to do that"? Then He showed me that this race would be so tight and so close that we wouldn't know who the next president would be for days and possibly weeks or months. I wasn't exactly sure how long the Lord was telling me this would go on--just that as time went on it would become more clear who would win. It was more clear than an audible voice. This is when Bush barely won Florida by about 1,500 votes. It went on for days or weeks about who would be the winner.

    In 2001 or 2002 I was about 46 I guess. I had gone for almost a year without the illicit activity in my life. I thought that I was over it, but I still had a problem with internet porn. I went to a TCU football game in Ft. Worth, TX near the time of Thanksgiving. I prayed for a while before I went to the game, and I was praying that the Lord would deliver me from going to the strip places in Ft. Worth where there were drugs and prostitution. As I was praying the Lord spoke to me just as clearly as he had the first time about meeting the Latina girl at Footloose, and He said, "There is someone at the game I want you to meet". I didn't know what to think of this, but I didn't think I had my act together enough to start a relationship. I went to the game. It was a night game and due to being near the holidays there weren't quite as many people there. TCU was winning and they upset #17 ranked Louisville at that game. There was this girl I had noticed there that was so attractive to me. She was the type of girl that I had told the Lord I would like to have as a wife. Again, I'm talking physical attraction here. You know how shallow us guys are about this. Anyway, this girl was "hot" to use the modern term. At least she was to me, and I thought I wish I could meet somebody like her. I thought for sure this girl had to be married. I never more than glanced at her, and she never saw me looking at her. With about 2 minutes left in the game I moved down to a completely different section of stands near the 10 yard line. I did this because I was making my way out of the stadium and wanted to beat the crowd out a little bit. I was about 4 or 5 rows back in this section of stands and there was NOBODY in this entire section of stands except me. All of the sudden this girl that I had noticed walks down and stands right next to me!! I looked at her, and she kind of awkwardly looked away out of embarrassment I guess. Now, my mind is racing. This time I realize that I am right in the middle of what the Lord told me was going to happen. But I begin to justify in my mind why I can't have a relationship with this girl. I'm not enough this or that or the other thing. I never opened my mouth and after about a minute or two of her standing there, she went back to hang out with the people she came to the game with. I didn't talk to her because I can't talk to women. I have no problem with that or making conversation, etc. I guess I just couldn't believe that a girl as attractive as this girl was would really like me if she knew who I really was. So guess what? After the game was over I went to the seedy section of Ft. Worth like clockwork.

    In 2002 when the snipers were out in Washington, DC a few years ago, I simply went to the Lord in prayer and I asked the Lord if He would reveal to me who was doing the killing. The Lord spoke to me, and He said, "It's 2 black guys from the Tacoma, WA area and one is a lot older than the other, but they are both under 40". That's what the Lord said. I thought about going to the FBI, but since I had this sin problem in my life I was always shy about telling people things the Lord revealed to me. I was afraid I had missed God and would make myself look foolish.

    In 2008 or 2009, a couple of years ago before they even took the first vote in the Senate on Obama's health care bill, the Lord spoke to me about it, and he said, "It will pass, but there won't be any teeth to it". The Lord was saying it would pass, but it wouldn't be enforceable. It failed to get 60 votes in the Senate, and then the democrats lowered the bar for it to pass with 50 votes.

    OK, so those are just some of the highlights. What I'm saying is that I had a close relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, but I also had this terrible sin problem in my life and there was a 2-week cycle of sin. Well about 18 months ago, guess what happened? Yes, that which I really feared would happen did happen. That is, during a cycle of sin my spirit was NOT restored. I woke up one morning, and I realized the Holy Spirit had moved far away from me. The next 6 to 8 months was a living hell of being attacked by demonic spirits. The Lord had brought me into judgment for this 25 year long span of sin. I was blind side punched in the eye by a thug in downtown Ft. Worth. I got chronic fatigue from a hooker in Vancouver, British Columbia which is the drug and hooker capital of North America. I had a problem in my bowels from a prostitute in Ft. Worth. I was sick, and I was tormented and surrounded by demonic spirits of darkness. I wanted to die, and I wanted to commit suicide. Nobody will ever know what the demonic torment was like. I had a 4mm kidney stone that took 12 days to pass during this time, and as much pain as that was, it was actually less than the spiritual pain I was going through. I wondered if the Lord would send me to hell.

    Well fast forward to today right now. My relationship with the Lord has still not been restored. I do not have that close wonderful fellowship with the Lord anymore. The Holy Spirit does not speak to me about anything anymore. I have no guidance or direction in my life. When I wake up in the morning I am sick from my physical problems, and I am still harassed by demonic spirits. I have not been able to find work or hold a job for almost 3 years now. I'm 55. Although I don't visit prostitutes anymore, I still occasionally slip up on the internet about once every 2 weeks. It is like a IV shot of morphine into my body. All my pain goes away, and I am numb to my problems, but there is sickness and demonic attacks to follow later. But there is not the extreme contrast now in the 2-week cycle. Because the Holy Spirit moved far away from me, I am not as aware of the contrast between the demonic and the Holy. The joy that I once had is no longer with me. I am sad and wonder what can possibly be left of my life now. I don't know what to do or how to function. My parents, thank God, have me on life support financially or else I would be out on the streets. I was on the streets for 6 weeks, and it was so hard to deal with this being on the streets.

    So, I have lost out on a lot. What Jesus said is so true, "Whoever will save his life shall lose it, but whosever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it again." I lost getting married to a cute Christian girl and having kids. I love little kids and teenagers, and I lost out on having my own. I still did things with other people's kids at church, but I never had my own. My sexual addiction really kept me from being more effective in all areas of ministry. I once had a good strong body, and now I am overweight and have illnesses. I never had a close intimate relationship with a woman (married) in my life. I have only had about 500 "encounters" with female prostitutes. Sure a lot of them were really good looking, but so what? Where is the intimacy or the closeness? It isn't even possible that way, and now I don't even know where all those girls are or what they are doing. Most serious of all though I lost the close intimate relationship with Father God and the Lord Jesus Christ. He was my best friend, and I loved to spend time in prayer more than anything.

    So, what will happen now? I don't know. I guess I could still very well wind up out on the streets or in a living situation I hate. Will I ever be able to find a job and go back to work? I don't know. What solution is there in the sexual area? I don't know. I wonder if it's even possible at this point to begin to live an obedient life to the Lord. This is what has been lacking in my life. I obeyed in some areas, but deep down I was afraid to commit myself to any authority on a long term basis. So, I basically lived an escapism life. I could usually only hold a job for about 18 months. I actually see some similarities in my life to that of King Saul.

    My spirit seems to be more relieved from demonic spirits today. But the Joy and touch of the Holy Spirit has not returned. The Lord was showing me the other night that all my life has not been committed to anything. I bounced from hundreds of jobs and going here and there and hundreds of superfluous relationships, but never any serious or lasting relationships. My life has not worked. There is a deep seated fear of committing myself to anything or any authority out of a deep fear of betrayal. I know it's all in my mind, but I don't know how to get rid of it. Like the guys on the streets used to tell me, "A rolling stone collects no green moss". I scream sometimes, "Nobody is ever going to hurt me again!" This is why I got off into so much illicit sex. I just didn't believe that a relationship would work for me considering I had such deep seated problems. I still believed for years that my dad hated and rejected me. It is all so confusing I can't understand it. I pray Lord help me to know the truth that I may be made free. Lord give me repentance to the acknowledging of the truth.

    I may update in 6 months or a year. For now, I'm not sure what the future holds. I do seem to be more free from demonic spirits now, but the Lord is still pretty distant from me. Will he come back again and be close like He once was? I don't know. I doubt that my health will be restored.

    Re: My sexual sins quenched the Holy Spirit. Will He come back?

    Endzone...

    I registered because I found this article on Google while writing a teaching to address sin quenching the power of the Holy Spirit on our lives... I feel led to share with you some hope brother because I was where you are and there is a way out....it's not too late.

    I am guy in my mid 50's who has known the Lord for 30 years. In my middle 10 years I became luke warm, ended up walking into sin and wound up leaving my wife and living in all kinds of sexual sin. It took being brought to a place of total broken-ness and despair, but I broke hard and came to a place of repentance. It took being redeemed to finally realize that I had quenched the Holy Spirit and was walking in darkness because I had this head knowledge of the Lord but was far from Him. He hadn't left me..I had left Him. My wife and I today counsel couples caught up in marriages broken by infidelity and immorality. I also deal with single men with porn addiction (sin). We almost exclusively find that the people we encounter were once strong believers (not non-believers) who fell into sin and therefore became captives... the attack is two pronged...get one spouse unhappy and seeking love of self...idolotry, and the other into unforgiveness. Over the years I can almost plug names into the same bag of tricks of satan...it is very effective. Porn affects 50 percent of Chirstian men... Eph. 5 says, "let not immorality even be named among you...". Why do you think satan uses this as a way to break families and push men into bankrupcy in their walks? Because selfishness works.

    I could write volumes about the nuances of the whole thing and supporting scriptures... but here is what you must realize to survive this. The word is clear that sin separates man from God. Even our Lord had to be separate on the cross when He became sin for us. Our very covenant of salvation in grace began with Jesus starting His ministry after fighting satan in the dessert with a ministry of REPENTANCE. As did John the Baptist making the way for one greater than he... ITS STARTS WITH REPENTANCE. He died for our sin...if we choose to live a life of sin we are liars and not willing to have His blood cover our lives in the great exchange. To be justified by grace without living the evidence of sanctification by obedience is hypocracy and puts His work on the cross to shame. It's not that God has abandoned you... He is wooing you back over the years. We choose to abandon Him by choosing sin over grace. We arent talking about messing up incidentally, we are talking about living a lifestyle of unrepentant choice to disobey His word. Hebrews 6 nails this on the head..."if you go on sinning willfully it is impossible to reknew them to repentance"... , it says repentance. You must choose to cease sin before you can truly repent. He can then impart the HS to help you on the path. It must start with you repenting...repent is to turn 180 degrees away from your sin. Paul said, "buffet (*beat) your body into submission, take every thought captive....take on the full armor of God to quench the fiery darts. In Cor. The believer who was in a sexual relationship with his Step mother was handed over to satan for the destruction of his flesh. For what? (THE SALVATION of his soul)... In 2 Cor. you see where he was broken and drawn back in by the church. Paul is showing a beautiful example of redemption of the backslider. God is doing this to you so that you will realize that He loves you. He says He desires that none persih but that all come to repentance.

    I have worked with a number of brothers who have been where you are...the bonds and tendrels of porn addiction are strong. Pure Life Ministries in Kentucky brings men onto their campus full time for up to a year to break down these fortresses and set men free. I know a brother who attended and has been become a new creation redeemed by the Lord to a new life...he was a believer who struggled for 25 plus years... it wasnt until he repented and ws broken that God could turn Him loose from his idols. Dont give up... God hasnt given up on you. What is bound on earth is bound in heaven.. what is loosed on earth is loosed in heaven. You can still be redeemed and God will use your testimony to set others free. Research Pure Life and read the testimonies.

    I was truly the chief of all sinners Endzone... but He crushed me... "those HE LOVES He reproves...and His reproof is not pleasant for a season" But the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. Read John and 1 John and tell me how many times Jesus taught that His true followers who love God must obey His word...not just hear it.. not just grace that we make cheap by claiming to believe and walking in stark disobedience to His word. Jesus said "My mother and my brothers are those who hear the commandments of my father and obey them." Your redemption is near... repent and ask Him to forgive you... He will...He is waiting. If He can forgive a wretch like me...He will forgive you brother. I can put you into contact with many brothers just like you who were in bondage to sin and were broken and have overcome by God's Spirit to walk in peace and victory...no more 3 am demons telling you that you are going to hell. It is not too late as long as you lay down your idols. Repent, ask for His forgiveness and let Him change you. He can't remove what you wont let go of. Please look into Pure Life online...they are reasonable to attend and even find work for you to pay your room and board which is quite modest.

    PLease be prayerful about this.. Jeni and I are prayng for you.

    Jim

    Don't seek too much knowledge. You just may be putting more weight on your shoulders than you're able to bare. Let God be the one to decide how quickly you grow.

    Re: My sexual sins quenched the Holy Spirit. Will He come back?

    Endzone,

    I want you to know that my heart goes out to you, and that I will be in prayer for you as well. I also agree wholeheartedly with Jim. Sin separates man from God, scripture is very clear about this and one thing that I have noticed is that we don't talk enough about sin. Sin is real and God hates it, and we must also. We have to get to the place were we are willing to cut off our hands and gouge out our eyes to stop sinning. This is of course not a literal understanding but a statement of the need for repentance. Our flesh is in constant battle with the spirit and this is why we must take up our cross daily! In your case I would look into pure life ministries, and take that drastic step to repentance. Repentance is not saying your sorry (that is remorse) repentance is turning that 180 away. And if we are looking at sin then Jesus is behind us so when we turn 180 degrees we are now looking into the face of Jesus and we run to him.

    Just reading your testimony it sounds like you have tried to "beat" this sin. Like Jim said this addiction is deep and hard to beat. And I want to really encourage you to stop trying to beat it and surrender. Repent to the cross of Christ, truly repent. Pure life ministries is awesome I know they can help you. I have also fallen into sexual sin and was very far from God, caught up in myself, and my sin. The word speaks over and over again of obedience I am reading Jeremiah and over and over again God rebukes Israel for disobedience (sin). But Jim hit it right on the head why did he rebuke them? Two reasons that I see, one he is a just God, and two he wants Israel to repent and turn back to him. Know and understand this though that you are not alone, I know that Jim and I will be standing along side of you in prayer and love.

    Re: My sexual sins quenched the Holy Spirit. Will He come back?

    It is tragic when one is hated and rejected by ones own parents. What chance does a person have of having any self belief or any thought that they could ever be really loved or worthy of being loved. When the people who should have given them love and lifted them up as little ones only denigrated them and cast them aside.

    Oh what curses are passed onto the young when they live in such a world. Oh what curses pass from one wounded generation to another. Shock waves of evil passing through time destroying lives before they have started. May God have mercy, because this world sure does not have much, that's for sure.


    All Praise The Ancient Of Days

    It took me a minute to figure out why you thought I was correcting you. Then I realized it was my signature line. That's just a signature line that automatically shows up in all my posts. I just thought it was a good quote, so I copied it for my signature line. You'll see I didn't even say it, it was said by Diggindeeper.

    Endzone:

    I am in agreement with my "siblings" here: only repentance can truly help you. It was the only thing that helped me overcome my alcohol and drug dependencies. It is the only thing that helped me overcome my own sexual issues as well. I will pray for you, my brother: pray that the Lord continues to assist and guide you, and that He will give you the strength you need. Because we cannot do it on our own.

    I know: I tried, and I failed.

    In Him,

    Romans 8:15-17
