Sex Before Marriage?

For years I heard that fornication meant sex before marriage, until I studied it out for myself.

In the original Hebrew.(Old Testament).and the original Greek.(New Testament).the word used means 'lewdness', an example was sexual intercourse between a married man and an unmarried woman:.1Corinthians 6:16,18,20.

In the Old Testament, this was adultery. Other examples: Leviticus 21:9.(word here, 'whore', is the same original used in Ezekiel 16:26 and translated 'fornication'); Ephesians 5:5

In the New Testament the word fornication is used broadly to mean much the same, 'lewdness'. In modern religious usage, the word has acquired a meaning mostly today meaning a prostitute.
   Some have thought that the Kingdom Of God is a sexless realm. 

Now, since the Creator looks on the heart.(1Samuel 16:7; Luke 16:15), whatever in your relationship with your Creator that you contemplate that would be lewdness, you should not do:.Romans 14:23.

If lewdness to you is superficial relationships and having sex with a different partner as often you can, then you shouldn't.

If oral sex, etc..(Song of Solomon 5:4,5).is lewdness to you.(but know this:.the bed is undefiled.{Hebrews 13:4}), then don't.

When a passion for something other than sex consumes your life, then one's raging hormone demands diminish at that time.

But grow in grace and knowledge, the knowledge of good in which you can have confidence is correct knowledge. Come to see things from the higher consciousness perspective of the Infinite One.(2Peter 3:18).if you expect to grow in the direction of Him. Life is growth. Something is always growing in some way. The universe is dynamic. We either grow in goodness or in evil; your choice.

If having a marriage certificate by the state is what makes you feel comfortable before sex, then get one! If you wish to live common law or in some other arrangement, know that in all things you should live from the highest and sincerest intentions from your heart. In the Old Testament things has to be written down on stone. In the era of the New Testament, what is written in our hearts needs expression to be of benefit.

Some write up an agreement and commit to it regarding their relationship. Others require no such agreement. Have vision and govern your life with wisdom. Be sure the one you want to be committed to is the right one for you. Consider where you are going in life overall and just why you want a partner. 

Marriage is the only lottery licensed by the state and supported by the clergy, a clergy who for the most part shuns gambling, yet gambles with your hopes by often supporting tithing

Many today do want a committed relationship. They just want to commit themselves to playing with one another and then another and then another; shows a lack of higher standards and a living from the selfish ego level

Weddings are a good custom, if it is of the true feelings of the heart and not a fraud. It's not a fraud when the relationship is an expression of two souls deeply interested in merging with each other's soul, thus forming a new creation, both in relationship and with new life. Then a wedding can be the sincerest heartfelt commitment by both parties, as expressed publicly in celebration of this fact.

Weddings are a very positive and hopeful celebration of continued happiness together. Wedding rings are a courteous expression of this hope and commitment

A definition of insanity is:.Doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result. Love keeps a person grounded. Learn love. The seemingly endless running around with one partner and then another really goes nowhere. Temporary gratification is just that, temporary. Learn to look eternally.

There are those who are sane and wonder if the whole world around them is nuts and there are those who are 'unsane', seemingly content with their lot in life and the world they see, not really knowing any better. Ignorant are they of options that would open for them if they asked themselves some questions.

Einstein recognized this unsaneness of mankind. Reasoning from one's ego level cannot lead to solving problems of mankind because it lacks information on how, that is, on how one's heart can become better, thus improving life. It lacks this information because it just can't see from the ego level how information on high consciousness could make life better and thus, can't see any value in taking effort toward that:.Proverbs 14:12.

People of ordinary consciousness know no better way than to walk in the dangerous level of the imagination of their hearts:.Isaiah 30:10. Why don't they know any better way?

At the ego level one can't see what the beginnings of problems are until they are affecting one negatively. Why? And, at the ego level, one just can't comprehend.what consciousness is, nor is one interested when at that level to even find out, because he or she is too interested in the temporary excitement of ego living:.1Corinthians 2:14 "But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."

The reason that things don't change in one's life and in the world at large, is because people don't and we all affect the collective mind of mankind, mostly by default, that is, we don't know our attitudes are influencing it all and fail to see what's coming out of it to us and how and when that occurs. And so we live, blindly following.(Luke 6:39).our mass mind influenced egos which are out of alignment with the Creator's love for us:.Isaiah 65:2-7,11-15.

People lack knowledge and even the desire for it or else they would be seeking it. These are they of ordinary consciousness who are awake and yet asleep.."While in the state of wakefulness man can move around, reason, make decisions and generally many things are accessible to him that are beyond his reach during the sleep state. Well, it turns out that there are higher states of consciousness, compared to which an ordinary state of wakefulness is similar to a deep sleep. The ascension to still higher and higher states of consciousness.(*).is virtually, a way to God. Part of your consciousness becomes the common consciousness and you become who you are.(and who might that be?)."....from Introduction of Grigori Grabovoi's book.

"Consciousness is the structure that allows the Soul to control the body and in a wider sense the structure that unites spiritual and physical matter. Your consciousness doesn't differ from your body.(it's all one, the body being a different configuration of frequencies, all is frequencies; the plan for unconditioned spirits, attitudes). And you will see how your soul builds your body. 

"Concentration of consciousness here means its real accumulation, which is the accumulation of the spiritual united with physical matter..(intelligent energy acts through the invisible grid); concentrating on a certain organ changes its state to one of harmony and disease vanishes restoring one to health.....page 110 Grigori Grabovoi's book.

"Buildings too have an impact on man. The longer a building exists the more it is adapted to the collective consciousness. Buildings have a particular influence on human perception. That is why they continue to attract throngs of tourists. Man's desire for exploration comes from this. I mean who would want to go see an old building. Well, they are old, but they are not dead. All is alive in the invisible consciousness. The same is true for works of art. Growth strengthens. The more new things that become part of the collective consciousness, the more areas of that consciousness are developed and the more stable the consciousness structure becomes."....page 155 Grigori Grabovoi's book.

"Similar to how computers have shrunk in size from occupying rooms, greater and more powerful computers today fit in the palm of one's hand, so it is with consciousness. As one grows in spirituality through love by, meditating, studying, contemplating and praying.(how could I ever find time in a day to do all this?.surprise!), he follows the path of perfection and the greater and greater concentration of his consciousness is achieved.(it becomes less fragmented, that is, its vacillation from side to side lessens {side to side being, one side the original consciousness we all came here with and the other, the side of higher consciousness}; two sides to life). This means an increase in information compactness, an increase of the mass data in a volume unit. Once this reaches a certain value the volume submits to the person and the structure of the world changes for the better.(and this because:.Ephesians 4:16 "From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted.{knit together}.by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, makes increase of the body unto the.edifying of itself.in love.")..The person himself sets the tone."....page 110 Grigori Grabovoi's book.

Unsaneness is really being of the ego level, which for the most part, remains bound in blindness to the things of the spirit, even though one's mind is prompted many times a day to come up higher. The ordinary consciousness level is mostly out of touch with higher consciousness things, except for certain times when we actually hear 'a call'. Apart from that, the many prompts daily that come to each of us can be quickly drowned out by the noise of daily living, the many and varying things which come to the mind from our necessary actions in and reactions to the things of life.

The ordinary consciousness has varying and conflicting standards because it is out of touch with love. For example, one may generate dislike towards another who believes differently regarding something, like computers. He may believe they are beneficial and gets upset that others don't see computers the same way. Yet if someone else agrees with the belief that computers are indeed helpful, but has way more knowledge of them, jealousy may result. Either way he's trapped into negativity. Such is the unsaneness of mankind.

People have closed-mindedness for many reasons that they have allowed to sink deep into them.

Although relevant to the time of Christ on Earth with the Pharisees, Sadduccees, scribes, doctors and lawyers hot on persecution of Emmanuel, it can just as easily be applied to the unsane today, where the ego will eventually trap a person into more and more negativity:.Luke 21:34,35.

An example of unsaneness is arrogance. People clash with each other over, of all things, opinions. Witness the ridiculousness of those having close-mindedness.regarding their beliefs in the religion of evolution.(*), that is, the belief that mankind's origins came from what they don't really know for sure. See the full movie.Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. It's on YouTube.

While such persons are engaged in their little enclosed world of opinions, those who need so much help out there are bypassed. Putting walls up to protect opinions from examination precludes involvement in helpful efforts toward humanity's needs. A mark of arrogance is a lack of self-criticism along with a lack of being introspectional. Such are they who banter about in meetings seemingly of import, sharing opinions about mutual efforts in adding to a construct which has a flawed.foundation. Such is this strange thing called evolution.

Ordinary consciousness minds are minds not yet opened:.Ecclesiastes 3:11 "He has made everything beautiful in his time. Also he has set the world in their heart.(the ego level, human nature).so that no man can find out the work that God makes from the beginning to the end.".(the ego is a necessary 'evil' until we come onto the road to higher consciousness, a road we can't see unless someone shows us the way)

We can change another's energy by intention. We can change the world from evil to good the same way. Everything is energy.."The purpose of the world is to bring us to the kingdom of God.(the realm of the invisible here and now), to the bringing of us to receiving universal life and life individually forever and in perpetuity."....page 7 Grigori Grabovoi's book.

When and how should you apply the intention that changes things? 

We just have not been taught that negatives such as crime, violence, subjugation of others and the like, are due to our own greed, deceit and fear, so people simply continue on as they always have. That is, they just go along with the way things are and do not enter into meditation which changes things. Because of this, things get more frustrating the more we know to do good yet don't, the more a tiny bit of light comes through and we prefer not to see it, mostly because of worldly interests and concerns:.James 4:17.

Why can't ego level thinking solve mankinds problems?.John 15:5. It takes this.

And then there are those who are.( 1, 2, 3).insane. Insanity is unsoundness of mind rendering a person unfit to maintain a reasonably continuous positive lifestyle.

Being 'unsane' is being unable to be open-minded because of one's belief programming. It's easy to recognize individuals who are 'unsane'. They may listen, but inside they are fuming, almost hating you and can hardly wait for you to leave their presence. They have a dismissive attitude toward things they come across that are out of their realm of negativity. Resentful are they of any seeming.intrusion.broaching their closed door mental state. They are content with how they are and restrict themselves from approaching things in the world toward improvement. They remain engulfed within a selfish world of noninvolvement.

Being 'unsane' is being self-severed from the intelligent energy of the universe, having instead to rely upon one's limited belief structure. No guidance available from the Universal Intelligence we commonly refer to as God is allowed by them to seep through to their hearts. That's why God came to Earth in the physical form of Emmanuel, saying we must be born again:.John 3:6,7; 2Peter 2:10 "But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise government.(original for 'government' is 'dominion'; the same word is also translated 'Lord' in the New Testament, but means here, they resent what they regard as encroaching towards their self centered concerns, their 'lord'; they regard ideas toward helping others as threats to teir self-governance, where any impressions on their minds outside of selfish purposes are disregarded; they are characterized by being dogmatically impatient of contradiction). Presumptuous are they, self willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.(original for 'dignities' is 'opinions', in this case, ideas of others not in line with their mind's limitations).

One should know another well, before committing to whatever type of outward appearance a relationship may take.(see 'Mating'), whether it begins in a little private ceremony, a large wedding ceremony or just a sincere prayer for each other after you've decided to live with each other with perhaps an agreement (example). It matters to the Infinite One that you be happy. He is most concerned with your spirit:.Hebrews 12:9. The flesh will one day be gone:.Mark 12:25

But, one should live using wisdom.(Ecclesiastes 7:2).considering effects of all decisions. I mean venereal disease and aids are scourges of the day aren't they?

Living carelessly is living dangerously. Living freely in Christ throws the responsibility upon us to govern ourselves for our and for others' good to the best of our knowledge, ability and with the various levels of control and/or lack of control we all individually decide to exercise over our lives. 

Some decisions can obligate one to severely pay; be it divorce for whatever causes it.(perhaps lack of knowledge on what to look for in another, how to treat each other, etc.), be it disease, be it incontinence, be it careless driving and so on.

Some decisions may take away further living or greatly reduce one's ability to express in the same way as he/she previously had.(disabilities, etc.). Be careful in life.

Because it is the age of grace does not mean that for anyone it has to be the time of abusive and/or dangerous decisions regarding one's actions. It is the age of God's grace, not the age of man's grace, where he can live carelessly, thinking 'it can't happen to me'.

Some, with vision can be patient in waiting for what they want, such as 'the right one', as they are able to keep busy focused upon the main reason that they have been called to spiritual life in this time:.Philippians 1:27. Others must 'jump in', like,.'right now':.1Corinthians 7:6-9. They need to take time to think about what they know and about what they continue to learn regarding God in order to become steadfast and stable:.Colossians 2:5.
   In all things concerning yourself and others, plan to live peaceably:.Romans 14:18.

Questions


-Hebrews 13:4 says God will judge whoremongers. I checked and in the original the word's root is the same as for fornication and means lewdness. 

Paul is saying that the way of God is not one of lewdness and adultery, both selfish things.(verse 5).

Realize instead that one can be content in Christ as all things good for us are in Him and because He is in us one can be content that all things will continue unfolding in our experience of life. 
   And how will they be judged by the Infinite Intelligence?

-What does."as is fit in the Lord".mean:.Colossians 3:18

As would be fitting or proper for a Christian to adopt as behavior.

Once one is 'saved', he is as good as being in the physical Kingdom of God, now being in the spiritual one.(the family of Infinite Ones).

The job for a Christian now is to become as effective as he or she can in it, for self and for others.

In this particular verse's context, it is talking of male/female intimate relationships..
