TOPIC: GIVE HIM AN INCH, HE WILL TAKE A MILE (EPISODE TWELVE)
BIBLE VERSE: Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which t5he LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat out of the every tree of the garden?
Gen: 3:1 (KJV)
Many times when I have to talk to youths about marriage and courtship one of the major issues they always raise is Why cant we kiss or hug during courtship? I always let them know that kissing or hugging is only a starting point, capable of leading to other things. Who is that young man who will kiss and hang his hands? Sure, the hands will be busy doing some other things and anything can happen afterwards. Some body chemistry must take place that will not allow you to be satisfied with only kissing or hugging. You will always want to go further and want more and more!!!
When you give the devil an inch, he will take a mile. If you give his first suggestion a thought, be sure to expect more deadly suggestions. Morakinyo listened to the lie of the devil and he was deceived. Not only was he deceived, the devil packed into his house in the person of Hagatha, the marine agent of darkness. That was her target in the first place.
When Satan came to Eve, he didnt come as the devil, he came as a friend. He had a chat with her and on a lighter mood; he just said did God say? Prontothe woman jumped at the bait and found herself flat on the ground.
The Bible counsels that even those who stand strong: firebrands, prayer champions, healers of the sick and dead raisers should be careful lest they fall. It was bad enough that Morakinyo was too close to a sister he was not married to; he made it worse by bringing her in to his house without giving it a second thought. The Bible says flee from every appearance of evil!!!
