THE "BROKEN WINDOW THEORY" AND SEXUAL SINS AMONG CHRISTIANS

advertisement

hen Harvard professor, James Wilson and his counterpart, George Kelling of the University of Wisconsin, Madison came up with the "broken window" theory in 1982 to explain the currency of crime commission in urban cities in the United States, people in the academy were completely oblivious of the spiritual underpinning of the theory. As the Book of James 1:17 aptly pointed out: "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." Satan cannot originate anything good and useful, except evil, chaos and death. Evolution too is also lame in advancing anything good. Members of the academy may not give credit to the Sovereign Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that are in them, yet He is the First Cause and the repository of wisdom, Hallelujah!

The "broken window" theory itself began from earlier works by Prof. Philip Zimbardo of Stanford University, whose unique experiment into crime commission and prevention drew from autochthonous spiritual analysis. Like other secular works, members of the academy will never give glory to the Lord God Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, including humanity, the Source of all knowledge and the acne of wisdom. Just as we have natural laws formulated by members of the Homo sapiens to regulate human secular affairs, most people on earth feign similar spiritual laws guiding human affairs. This is what distinguishes the scions of Adam and Eve from lower animals. The correlation between inevitable consequences of breaking secular laws with appropriate sanctions; ditto for spiritual laws with invitation to divine punishment when such spiritual laws are breached are realities of human existence, ignored, unknown or unacknowledged. After all, every matter reproduces after itself. Apostle Paul hit the nail on the head thus: Galatians 6:7. You reap whatever you sow.

Let's see briefly what Wilson, Kelling and Zimbardo said in the "broken window" theory on criminological matters and causality to spiritual bondage and freedom. Burglars and armed criminals do not just break into dwellings arbitrarily and randomly. They look for opportunities. When they see houses and conveyances that are monotonously unattended and abandoned; they see such as prime targets. When a house has a broken window, the theory states, and for inexplicable reasons, the owners neglect to fix such windows, burglars surmised that such dwellings and conveyances are vulnerable to invasion. Ditto for vehicles and other properties. In other words, inability to fix small things of life lead to bigger and more vulnerabilities. The "broken window" theory has spiritual parallels. How could a whole nation suffer colossal defeat and shame, because of the sin of Achan in Joshua 7? How could the entire human race be suffering and brought under Satanic bondage, because of the sin of two individuals: Adam and Eve? A sister called us wondering why she is unable to settle down after giving her life to the Lord Jesus Christ. The usual suspects were advanced as culprits: Satan, demons, witches and their human agents. But what gave these fiendish forces the ammunition to prey on our Christian sister? Just like burglars seize the moment to burglarize a dwelling with broken window (s), our Christian sister is paying for the abortion she did in her sophomore way back in college. "But Dr, that was almost 20 years ago when I was in college?" she shouted over the phone. "Yes, but Satan and his demons have been around more than 20 years ago," I reminded her.

We hear all kinds of doctrines these days in Christendom and the Holy Spirit is pissed. "Don't worry, once you've given your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, everything will be fine," many of today Christians are told. I even hear some pastors say cheekily with bone face to their congregation that; "We are not under the law, anymore" without explaining what that statement meant to their young and upcoming believers. Unbeknown to their infant believers, such muddled doctrine appears Christians receive mere slaps on the wrists for sins. No wonder, holiness and righteousness are downplayed in many churches today and financial prosperity is the zeitgeist. The Decalogue in Exodus 20 is still as relevant and operational as the Lord lives. The last time I checked, it has not been abrogated by the King.

A medical doctor Christian brother was engaged to a fellow medical doctor. Both were born-again Christians. The groom listened to bad advice from his local church pastor and neglected his biological father during his star-studded wedding. Everything went well with the marriage until calamity struck five years after. The couples could not feed themselves. They became hard-up and whatever could go wrong with the marriage started. Life was hard and again, the usual suspects were fingered. Prayers, night vigils, fasting and the rest didn't move the needle an inch, until a man with the spiritual gift of discernment (I Corinthians 12: 10c) appeared. "Brother, what happened during your wedding?" our medical doctor husband was asked. He had forgotten until his fellow medical doctor wife reminded him his own biological Daddy wasn't invited to the wedding. "They broke my law; in Exodus 20:12: Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you," the Holy Spirit said. Our Christians couples were told by their local Church pastor that since they were now born-again Christians, they didn't need to obey their parents anymore, so the groom's father who was a non-Christian could as well be forgotten. The local Church pastor only had half-knowledge; the commandment was not to "obey" but "honor." Any act of disobedience to the commandment and laws of the God invite appropriate comeuppance. That is the way the Sovereign Lord God Almighty has set up the system. Our Lord Jesus Christ came to fulfill the law and not to abrogate the law (Matthew 5:17: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.")

When Apostle Paul said we, as redeemed born-again children of the Most High God were not under the law, what he meant was that we have the opportunity to get it right while alive, rather than be subjected to the repercussions and effects of the law summarily and instantaneously. Our Lord Jesus Christ gave the law and He would not and never void the law, but its effects when we plead His Blood offer us escape called grace-an unmerited favor against the punishment of breaching the law. But we must never assume, we must ask for pardon, just as the owner of the broken window should not assume it is a small matter and it can be fixed at a later date. As John said: "My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father--Jesus Christ, the Righteous One (I John 2:1). In the Old Testament, the people had no advocate or lawyer to argue their case, so breach of the Decalogue invited swift and immediate punishment. But Glory be to the Lord Jesus Christ Who removed the immediate effect of the law, but only if we call on Him. This is the lacuna in many Churches today. The greatest area where this spiritual vacuity is apparent in many Christians' lives is in sexual sins. Immediately after the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden aftermath of their disobedience to their Maker, Satan succeeded in seizing the human mind in the soul. The human spirit became relegated to the background clockwise thus: body, soul and spirit. Hitherto, when Adam and Eve were sinless and attuned to the Lord God Almighty, their relationship with the Godhead was thus: spirit, soul and body. Do you notice the 100% opposite? The human mind became the devil's workshop. In fact, the Lord God was so pissed that we read in Genesis 6:5-6: "The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled."

Consequent upon the Fall, the human mind has close affinity with evil forces. Therefore, Satan and his demons see the human mind as a great fortress they continually strive to seize and control. In all sins committed, including sexual sins of whatever kinds, there are 10 stages the human mind passes through in the hands of demonic forces in this regard.

THE 10 STAGES OF HUMAN SPIRITUAL SEXUAL SLAVERY

Satan and his demons control humans through sexual slavery in ten different stages. All other sinful acts follow the same metamorphoses.

Flashing Ideas: Like the "broken window" theory, burglars only need one broken window to act. In the human body, there are ten windows namely: mouth, two eyes, two ears, two noses, your anus, sexual organ and feet. What do you watch with your eyes (Matthew 6:22-24); what do you eat with your mouth and what do you listen to with your ears? Where do you walk to with your feet? How many demonic trespasses have you committed? Apply that to your sexual organ and you get the full picture. When ideas percolate through any of these organs, you open it for debate. Ideas are the raw materials through which decisions are made. Where do you get your ideas from?

Suggestive Conversations: Satan desperately wants to communicate with human beings, so also are his fallen angels. The moment Eve initiated a conversation with Satan, she was done for. It was deliberate for the Lord not to let the demons speak (Mark 1: 34). The moment you open a dialogue, a window has been opened. Ideas turn into engagement which in turn become Conversations, either with self, like minds or non-like minds. In the spirit realm, there are no time and space. In our individual minds, we initiate conversations in and out of the natural realm; dream and visions are the windows and antennas to the spirit realm. The "broken window" theory comes in handy here.

Dialogue: The Lord God Almighty the Father created the heavens and the earth by His Spoken Words. Jesus Christ is the Living Word, while the Holy Bible is the written Word. Both are complementary. Words are the greatest weapons of the believer and Satan and his demons know this principle. No wonder, the Word of Life tells us to make captive every word that exalts itself above the throne of God and make them obedient (2 Corinthians 10:5). If you open a conversation with Satan here on Ideas you did not originate, you are approaching a dangerous slippery slope. There are only 7 ideas on earth as revealed by the Written Words: Truth, Nobility, Righteousness, Purity, Love, Excellence, Admiration/ Praiseworthy. (Philippians 4:8-9 ("Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things." If at any time in your thinking process, you cannot situate an idea in these 7 categories, the enemies have sneaked in on you. They are capable of effecting this both from within and from without, but they prefer the former.

Consideration: This is the stage of tilting the balance either for or against. It was Satan's dialogue with Eve that opened the window for consideration and entertaining an alien idea. In the two forks to the road of decision, an enemy is lurking. Psalm 1:1 captured it beautifully thus: "Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,.." Do you observe the progression and descent: walk to stand and then stand leads to sit?" At this stage, a turn-around is still possible, but extremely dangerous. The reason is that Will as an organ in the Soul is easily broken here and Will is the seat of spiritual decision. Wherever the Will goes, so the entire human Soul gravitates. Satan and his demons bombard the Will in the human Soul ceaselessly to break it so it can be used for their fiendish ends. Ask anyone dealing with known addiction and you will hear the phrase: "I've lost my Will Power." Sexual sins are the most veritable tools in the hands of Satan and his minions in breaking the Wills of human Souls.

Rationalization: Once you cooperate with the same enemy out to destroy you and begin to rationalize your decision, you are finished. After all, I only had a fling, you hear rationalization such as that, or I am not as terribly bad as those who sleep with ten men, but only two. Once you rationalize sin in proportions, you are helping and strengthening the enemies. The next stage is yield as an inevitable corollary.

Yielding Each time, you see this sign:" Yield" written in red while in vehicular traffic, every motorist knows you can't tarry. Someone else is supposed to take position. The Word of Life warned us not to yield the ground to the enemies. No wonder, Apostle Paul shouted: After you have done all things, stand and then to stand! (Ephesians 6: 13-14: "Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, …" Just as the early fixing of the "broken window" would have kept the burglars and criminals away, repudiating Satanic thoughts and ideas very early would have saved us future struggles in competing for space and ground. Once you yield any ground to demonic forces, retaking the yielded ground will take the same efforts and time in losing the ground in the first place. Imagine what it is costing the human race on earth the indiscretion of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. When Satan exhausted all artifices in destroying the children of Israel in the wilderness on the way to the promised land, Jezebel, the demonic principality of sexual immorality told Satan to enlist her. In a day, 23,000 Israelites were killed (I Corinthians 10:8: "We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did--and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died.") A born-again sister called desperately in agony for not being blessed with the fruit of the womb. The Holy Spirit told me to tell her ruefully: "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows, the one who sows to please his flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; but the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.…" (Galatians 6:7-8). I told the Lord I didn't understand. "I gave her three children and she murdered them all," was the reply. "Lord, this sister hasn't ever conceived and that was why she called," I argued with the King. "Ask her, if I haven't given her children," the Holy Spirit snapped back. It happened that our Christian sister procured three abortions while she was still in the world and now as a born-again Christian, happily married, Satan is accusing her of murder. Abortion is murder, period! "What about grace, O Lord?" I pleaded. "Yes, My Grace is sufficient for her, (2 Corinthians 12:9), "it's that My Grace that is keeping her alive, otherwise she would have been dead," the Lord Jesus Christ replied. Then I wanted to play smart and tried to "blackmail" God: "Daddy, if You don't give this sister a child, she may stop worshipping You." The Lord Jesus Christ replied as a matter of finality: "I didn't shed My Blood on the Cross to give her a child, if she refuses to worship Me, it means she is interested in my gift than loving Me."

Loss of Ground: For every loss of ground on your paths, equals yielding further grounds. A broken window makes the rest windows in the house vulnerable and soon it extends to doors and other entrances. Satan and his demons don't normally ask for 50 percent ground, but only 2 percent. They only ask for a toehold and lamentably, they have been experimenting with us for thousands of years now, and they know that a toehold will soon lead to a foothold.

Reinforcements: Every negotiator knows that he or she who holds the cane of blackmail dictates the form of gratification. Satan and his demons are united together when it comes to evil. Principalities are fiercely territorial as I have pointed out in this column in the past. The denizens of darkness are aplenty and they want to maintain their turfs forever.

Domination and Further Retrenchment: One area of success increases chances of success in other areas. Burglars can hit the same dwelling repeatedly, because success replicates further success.

Possession: This is the final stage of eureka. Natures abhors a vacuum, so also in the spirit realm. The spirit realm defies time and space and every spirit wants to oversee lesser spirit. That is why they relish being called gods and goddesses. You either rule them and dominate or they rule you and be dominated. There is no middle ground. The choice is yours!

DON'T REMOVE EMIR SANUSI, HE WILL BECOME PRESIDENT

There is a dangerous game some northern politicians are playing, which will come back to haunt them in the next few years, if they go ahead with their plan and fulfil our prophecy in this column. We gave a prophecy about the imminent death of the late iconic Emir of Kano, Alhaji Abdullahi Ado Bayero here in this column in 2014 and it was fulfilled as we prophesied. "We warned that special prayers should be entered into in 2014 on behalf of the life of Emir Alhaji Ado Bayero of Kano so he could survive the year 2014. The revered king passed on last year as we warned." Read the prophecy and its fulfillment as published: -

http://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/010415.html On Monday December 15, 2014, we predicted the following on what was about to happen in Kano nay Nigeria three years later in 2017: "Dr Sanusi Lamido Sausi will be torn between two career choices this year; to become the new Emir of Kano or contest for the presidency of Nigeria…." He opted for the former. http://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/121514.html

Now we heard that some northern governors are planning to dethrone the emir. They will be making the mistake of their lives, if they proceed with this sinister plan. If they orchestrate the removal of Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi 11, he will contest the presidency of Nigeria in the immediate future. He will win and as surely as the True Lord God Almighty lives, all the northern governors involved in his dethronement will go to jail at various times in their political lives. They should go and write this prophecy down. Read our prophecy on the incipient dethronement of Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi here as published in this column: "The political status quo will remain here till 2019 as the incumbent will remain in the saddle for his constitutional terms of four years each. The current Emir of Kano, former CBN Governor, Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi should be extremely careful about his security so his reign would not be short- lived like that of his grandfather. He should pray for his aged mother to make it through the year 2016 and this year as well…." (January 06, 2017:

GOV. GABREIL SUSWAM NEEDS PRAYERS NOT TO GO TO JAIL

We saw the current travails of former governor of this state and alerted him to do something about it. Ex-Gov. Gabriel Suswam of Benue state would have averted his current travails, if he had listened to our prophecies of Saturday January 2, 2016 thus: "BENUE STATE: First the bad news: former Gov. Gabriel Suswan should pray very hard so he will not go to jail this year. While in jail, his wife Yemisi may be forced to file for divorce and that will be the end of his marriage. http://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/010216.html)

WE WARNED SEN. ISIAKA ADELEKE EARLY THIS YEAR ABOUT HIS HEALTH: We saw the demise of former governor of Osun state earlier this year and warned Sen. Isiaka Adeleke to do something about his health. Here were our exact words: "Sen. Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke should not entertain the idea of returning to the Government House in 2019. He will not succeed…All past governors of Osun State wishing to return to the seat are chasing wild geese in 2019. First governor of Osun State, Major-General Leo Segun Ajiborisa should move nearer to the Lord more than ever before to witness the year 2019" (Friday January 06, 2017 and this is the link to that prophecy. http://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/010617.html ). When we speak in coded language most of the times, only those with spiritual insights will understand. Another death, this time tragic and calamitous is hovering another known personality in the mold of Isiaka Adeleke in Osun state this year. This one can be averted, if prayers are offered. Adeleke's time was not up when he left, but the principality of death went ahead and claimed "Serubawon" because he neglected prophetic utterance.

WHO WILL BECOME EKITI STATE GOVERNOR IN 2018? Who succeeds current governor of the state next year? We will disclose who and what the Holy Spirit is telling us about this state next year in this column soon.
