Overcoming the Spirit of R. Kelly (Lust)

By S-Dot for The S-Dot Files

As a brother that has been delivered from a “flesh problem” I am often perplexed with the level of disconnectedness that is shown to Robert Kelly. This brother, like me has been offered access to some of the most ‘bootiful’ women in the world. The allure of lust can be greater than an intoxicant known. For years, I was governed by my lower nature and while my preference wasn’t for younger women, it was excess encounters with countless women. Only God’s grace kept me from contracting a pestilence like HIV/AIDS, which people who did far less got and died.

I speak out about the pitfalls of lust-craft not to condemn, but rather to show compassion to those that are struggling everyday to break free from this addiction.

Let’s keep brothers like Robert Kelly lifted in prayer, because God can fix and remix anyone. Look at me.

Pr 6:25 – Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes,

Eze 20:30 – "Therefore say to the house of Israel: 'This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Will you defile yourselves the way your fathers did and lust after their vile images?

Eze 23:17 – Then the Babylonians came to her, to the bed of love, and in their lust they defiled her. After she had been defiled by them, she turned away from them in disgust.

Na 3:4 – all because of the wanton lust of a harlot, alluring, the mistress of sorceries, who enslaved nations by her prostitution and peoples by her witchcraft.

Eph 4:19 – Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more.

Col 3:5 – Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.

1Pe 4:3 – For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do--living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry.

1Jo 2:16 – For everything in the world--the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does--comes not from the Father but from the world.

*The above Scriptures are taken from the New International Version (NIV).

To my brother in Christ, mentor in manhood and lifelong friend Pastor Spencer “Knowledge” Wright thank you for living a life of promise. I will miss our weekly chats, but I am so proud that you’ve graduated to Father’s Presence. I’ll see you when I get there big brother. Eternal love.
