Genesis 39:7-9, 11-12 KJV
And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.  But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand;  There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?  And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.  And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

When you commit the sin of adultery and fornication, you are sinning against three parties, Your Maker, Yourself and Your Neighbor in whom you committed the sin together.
Fornication is generally consensual sexual intercourse between two people not married to each other. It also can define as having premarital sex.
Adultery is voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and a person who is not his or her spouse. When you have an affair apart from the partner you are legally married to. You are sinning against three parties. Not only are you sinning, you are also defiling your matrimonial bed. The same thing applies to fornication.
When you commit this sin, you are destroying and condemning your Body, Soul and Spirit. Because this sin does not only happen in the physical realm, it happens in spirit and whatever affects the Spirit will also affect the body and the soul. This sin can make one lose something from God that cannot be ever recovered again. If you have been practicing this sin, you had better repent from it now before it’s too late.
1 Corinthians 6:18 KJV
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
This sin is not only committed in the physical, but can also be committed in the heart. Jesus Christ said anyone who look at someone lustfully, be it a man or a woman, you have committed the sin it in your heart. (See Matthew 5:28). So your heart has to be renewed every time and be filled with good thoughts because out of it are issues of life. See Proverbs 4:23.
Adultery and fornication is one the weapon the devil uses to bring down a mighty man of valor. No matter whom you are, if you commit this sin, you’ll fall flat that’s why you must run away from it.
When you commit this sin, there are three parties you are sinning against:
When committing this sin, of course you think nobody is watching, but you forgot that whatever that seems dark in the eyes of a man is very clear in eyes of God. Truly, nobody might be watching but God is watching. You are sinning against your Maker. What a sin! 1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
When Joseph was in that situation he was so mindful and careful because he knows the consequences. He have no other option than to flee.
When this sin is being committed, you are defiling your own body. You’re destroying the temple of God with your foolish act. Imagine using your hand to destroy yourself. Your body has value, is the temple of The Holy Spirit. God himself dwells in your body, so why did you want to kick him away by yourself. You’re bought with a price, don’t be so cheap and offer yourself as free gift to this sin.
- Your Neighbour.
Adam and Eve has been in the garden together both naked. But he immediately they sinned, they discovered they were naked and they felt ashamed. What a pity. Whenever that sin is being committed, the glory and Spirit of God leaves that person immediately. The person you commit that sin with will feel and ashamed and feel so cheap. A Glory can be lost if this sin being committed. So why do you want to sin against your neighbour. This person is some one’s future partner, this person is someone wife / husband for God sake. Please abstain from this sin in order not to destroy your Body, Soul and Spirit.
There Is Always a Way Out
God always have a way of bringing people out of this temptation. Whenever you find yourself in this situation, God will always find an escape route for you.
1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Adultery and Fornication is forbidden fruit. Anyone who eats from it must surely reap its reward.
If you are not married, avoid ungodly relationship and premarital sex. Don’t sell your body so cheaply and fall victim.
If your are married. Let this act be done with your spouse only, not with any other person.
