Lust is Satan number two weapon that he uses against the children of God. Couple with greed he can use these two human emotions to destroy and conquer many lives.
We can never forget that it is not even the act which God despises, it is the thought as is said here in Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Satan is an expert in using lust, greed and temptation in the scripture according to 1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world.
Because God knew that the Devil would do anything to destroy his creation and his people he warns us in 2 Timothy 2:22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. He is telling us that we need to repel Satan starting from when we are young.
The only way that we can defeat the Demon known as Satan is by heeding the word of God, trusting him when he says that he will protect us, never leave or forsake us. Colossians 3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
1 Corinthians 6:13 Meat for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but the Lord; and the Lord for the body. According to this scripture our bodies is not meant for sexual immorality but the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
