How many of you have ever been with a woman or numerous women that made you cringe when you reflected on it after you were convicted by the Holy Spirit? When you repent and turn from this kind of wickedness and don’t want to look back, it makes you physically and mentally sick sometimes to think about how you behaved in sin.
Ecclesiastes 7:26 NIV I find more bitter than death the woman who is a snare, whose heart is a trap and whose hands are chains. The man who pleases God will escape her, but the sinner she will ensnare.
The king in this case (Ecclesiastes 7:26) says that being with a woman like the ones he was with is more bitter than death. What made the experience so deadly? He describes the woman as a snare – a trap with a noose for hanging. The experience with her held him captive in sin. Her charm, seduction, and sex was imprisoning (marine, Jezebel spirit). He lost control and couldn’t escape her because of the evil motives in her heart and her chain like hands. The sin and deception is so powerful in this woman that only a man who has the power of God can escape her.
Men, if you are susceptible to this kind of spirit, you have open doors that only God and the filling of the Holy Spirit can shut. Run from this spirit. Seek after God. Be subject to God. Stay on your face before Him. Fast and pray. But do not stay…Dr.J.
