Topic: The Quest For Pleasure – A Sign Of The End
The craving for self-pleasure is the root of many vices. It is
for the sake of self-pleasure that people engage
in dirty competition.
SCRIPTURE: For as in the days that were before the
flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the
day that Noah entered into the ark. 
Matthew 24:38
 Beware of the
strategies of satan to make people engage in the pleasures of
this world and end in hell.
Our anchor Scripture
makes it clear that a major sign of the end time is existence in pleasure.
In the end time,
people will exist just for fleshly pleasure; they will eat and drink only for
pleasure. The flesh will become the god of many people. People will live just
for the sole purpose of gratifying the flesh.
It is important to
know that what people call “secular humanism” is nothing but man being a god to
himself, and living solely for himself. So, in the end time, the sins of the
flesh will multiply; the devil will give people abundance of flesh-gratifying
agenda to fulfil.
In the last days, the
devil will orchestrate everything to make sure that people are busy with the
flesh. He engages people in the abundance of internet games, video games,
social media distractions, etc. just to keep them occupied with the flesh at
the expense of their spirituality and their souls.
Today, luxurious
objects of pleasure are everywhere just for the sake of fleshly gratification.
For example, before you talk of the 2020 Model of an automobile, the 2021 Model
is ready. I even heard that many automobile companies have already designed up
to 2060 Model and are only waiting for them to be released at the right time.
Today, many young
girls are into prostitution because they want to look fine, have expensive
shoes and dresses, and have the latest mobile phone, preferably the iPhone.
They move about with vanities all over their body in the form of seductive
dressings and outlandish accessories and makeups. They put five rings in one
finger, five ear rings in one ear and wear nose rings, anklets, etc. They
pierce their tongue and other unlikely body parts, all in the name of self-pleasure.
Now, what is the
reason behind the scourge of kidnapping that we see today? Why do people steal
money just to drink alcohol, take cocaine, buy cars, houses etc.? What about
ritual killing, armed robbery, hired assassination, etc.? Why do people sit in
government offices and embezzle public fund? The reason is self-gratification,
self-pleasure and vanity.
The craving for
self-pleasure is the root of many vices. It is for the sake of self-pleasure
that people engage in dirty competition. They buy houses abroad because their
friends have houses abroad. They want to travel to London because their
colleagues have been to Paris. The question is: if you have one hundred houses,
how many of those houses will you sleep in, in one night? And when you die, how
many houses will be buried along with you? These are the questions to ponder
Beloved, beware of the
vanities of the flesh. Beware of the strategies of satan to make people engage
in the pleasures of this world and end in hell.
Remember this: Beware
of the strategies of satan to make people engage in the pleasures of this world
and end in hell.
Refuse to exist just
for fleshly pleasure.
Refuse to be drawn
into fleshly competition with anyone.
Endeavour to live in
the Spirit always.
PRAYER: O Lord, deliver me from the carnal
pleasure of this end time. Help me to follow You diligently in holiness, Lord,
in Jesus’ Name.
QUOTE: What are the controlling desires of your
life? What do you desire above every other thing in life? What drives you? Is
it God, worldly pleasure or self? Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by
Dr Paul Enenche.
Jeremiah 4-6
AMAZING FACT: Animal behaviourists have concluded that
cats don’t meow as a way to communicate with each other. It’s a method they use
for getting attention from humans.
 Grace to
overcome fleshly pleasures is released for you right now in Jesus’ Name.
