This is a short story about a young man named Steven who was given dreams from God that reveal truth God has shown me (the writer) that His Church needs to hear. Though this is written as fiction, the words spoken by Jesus are actual words that God showed me. So, this is not just a fictional work. It applies to our current world and to the Church. I encourage you to seek God about this to find out what He would show you about this story.
The Man Who Committed Adultery
Instantly, Steve found himself in a chamber made of granite rock. Five hideous-looking demons were facing a man they had chained up to a wall. He wore dirty, rotting, black clothes. His face was contorted with rage. He screamed in pain as the demons took spears and poked him all over his body, unmercifully. They seemed to delight in giving him pain. He had holes and cuts all over his clothes and skin.
Jesus ordered the demons to leave, and they left. Then, Steve could see the man more clearly. He was filled with holes, but no blood was coming from them. After a little time, the holes began to close up. [Click here to check out the "Footnote" in Part 3 about the topic of Hell.]
“Who is this man?” Steve asked Jesus.
“You many ask him, My son.”
“Who are you?” Steve said, facing the man chained to the wall.
The man glared at Jesus and cursed him.
“Be silent and speak to this man,” Jesus ordered.
“I was a Church-goer. I went every Sunday to a mega church. I regularly attended weekly prayer meetings, but I didn’t feel like I really cared so much about God. I mainly went to the prayer meetings because my little daughter was unsaved, and I wanted her to become a Christian. But, I also went because I felt I needed to.”
“Why?” Steve asked.
“I felt I should because I needed to do something for God. I mean, if you are involved with pornography and dating a woman who wasn’t your wife, you need to do something to get a good report card with God. I divorced my first wife because she didn’t like my habits and vices. Then, I met this cute lady at the church who took an interest in me. I felt I must be something special for her to do that. Anyway, she and I dated until we decided we should get married. I don’t see what’s so wrong with that. But, just in case God wouldn’t like that, I took part in the midweek prayer group and I increased my weekly tithe. Surely, God would be happy with me then.”
“Did you feel guilty about marrying a woman who wasn’t your wife and about the internet sin?” Steve asked.
“Yes, I guess. I felt something convicting me. It had to have been the Holy Spirit. But, I didn’t listen to Him. I mean, I had God’s grace to continue sinning, didn’t I? I was not under the law, so that means I could partake in sin. But, God is more strict than I thought. He doesn’t want us to have fun.”
“You are not telling him the truth, David,” Jesus said. “Tell him the truth.”
“I was incorrect to say that God is strict. He isn’t, I guess. Someone at the prayer group read a Bible verse from Galatians 5 that struck me like a hammer. I was very convicted, but I refused to repent from My sin.”
“What was the verse?” Steve asked.
“It was actually several verses. The passage that struck me was Galatians 5:19-21. It says that people who commit adultery, and fornication, and uncleanness ‘shall not inherit the kingdom of God.’ I felt very convicted, but as the next person shared a verse, I began to close my heart to the Holy Spirit’s conviction. I said to myself that I really wasn’t such a bad person, and that the verses in Galatians 5 were for unbelievers, and not Christians. I had God’s grace.
“But, years later, I happened to read Hebrews 10. Hebrews 10:28-30 really struck me, but I shrugged off the conviction. The verses said that if someone did despite to the Spirit of grace and treated the blood of Jesus, by which he was sanctified, an unholy thing…such a person would be judged by God. I understood, by the Holy Spirit, that the one who is sanctified by the blood of Jesus is a born-again Christian. I also remember it said elsewhere that judgment would begin at the house of God.
“But, I rejected the scripture because I loved my sin and I didn’t want to stop. I still believe that that sin was not so bad. Look what Hitler did to the Jews or what Pol Pot did to his people. I’m really not so bad of a person. I chose to believe that God was fine with sin because I’m no longer under a law. But, Hebrews 10 was warning people about falling away. Also, I heard fellow Christians, who knew about my second marriage, share Luke 16:18 and other verses with me about how it was adultery to divorce and remarry, unless the spouse was dead.
“But, I ignored it because I knew of other couples that were living like I and my second wife lived. But, the Bible was clear that what I was doing was adultery, according to the Law of Moses and the teachings of Jesus. But, I still don’t see what’s so wrong with adultery. I know it’s against the Bible, but I can’t agree that it is something a person shouldn’t do.”
“Why can’t you agree with the Bible?” Steve asked.
“I, I can’t agree with something that goes against My own heart,” the man said. “If my heart says I’m right, then who can blame me for going against God’s Word?”
“You know what you did was sin, and you can’t even repent right now?” Steve asked.
“I would repent from my sin only if I could be guaranteed to return to earth, and be given the freedom to live how I choose. I’m my own man. Why should I follow God’s rules? Heaven is just a place of rules. It is a place where people just do God’s bidding.”
“But, you suffer down here.” Steve said, shaking his head. “And, Heaven isn’t like that. It’s a place of joy and true happiness where believers and angels worship God.”
“I would like to go to Heaven if it was like earth,” the man said, “but it’s not. There’s no partying or pleasing the flesh allowed in Heaven. God is no nonsense and just wants His people to worship Him, and be in awe of Him, and bow before Him.”
“But, that is not true,” Steve said. “God is not about no nonsense. He wants us to have true joy, and true peace, and true pleasure in Him, but not the pleasure of sin. Sin brings death and suffering.”
“Well, that is my lot,” the man spat, “thanks to your God, Who doesn’t let people live how they want.”
“Why are you are blaming God for your rebellion against Him and for the consequences of sin? After all, He called out to you to repent while you were on earth.”
The man closed his mouth and glared at Steve with a hateful look, remaining silent.
“Sadly, My son,” Jesus said, guiding Steve away from the man, “this man does not want to repent, and does not want to turn from his sin. He only wants to ‘repent’ if he can have the pleasures of sin that he left behind on earth. His repentance is false repentance, and it is nothing but false works and false contrition. I am grieved with people that say they ‘repent’ from their sins, but they actually revel in their sins, and despise Me. They shall have their reward, for what they sow they shall also reap. Let us go forth up to another place.”
