Spirit of lust

2 Sam 13:1  And it came to pass after this, that Absalom the son of David had a fair sister, whose name was Tamar; and Amnon the son of David loved her.
2 Sam 13:2  And Amnon was so vexed, that he fell sick for his sister Tamar; for she was a virgin; and Amnon thought it hard for him to do any thing to her.

2 Sam 13:10  And Amnon said unto Tamar, Bring the meat into the chamber, that I may eat of thine hand. And Tamar took the cakes which she had made, and brought them into the chamber to Amnon her brother.
2 Sam 13:11  And when she had brought them unto him to eat, he took hold of her, and said unto her, Come lie with me, my sister.
2 Sam 13:12  And she answered him, Nay, my brother, do not force me; for no such thing ought to be done in Israel: do not thou this folly.
2 Sam 13:13  And I, whither shall I cause my shame to go? and as for thee, thou shalt be as one of the fools in Israel. Now therefore, I pray thee, speak unto the king; for he will not withhold me from thee.
2 Sam 13:14  Howbeit he would not hearken unto her voice: but, being stronger than she, forced her, and lay with her.
2 Sam 13:15  Then Amnon hated her exceedingly; so that the hatred wherewith he hated her was greater than the love wherewith he had loved her. And Amnon said unto her, Arise, be gone.
2 Sam 13:16  And she said unto him, There is no cause: this evil in sending me away is greater than the other that thou didst unto me. But he would not hearken unto her.
2 Sam 13:17  Then he called his servant that ministered unto him, and said, Put now this woman out from me, and bolt the door after her.

There are many testimonies of children who were abused by some family member. Along with the abuse came a curse "you are evil, you are going to hell."  A child may accept that shame as fact. Amnon said he loved his half sister Tamar, almost with an obsession. This is the spirit of lust. It takes hold of the person, driving them to do an evil act. Then the object of the lust is hated or there is intense self hatred.  The desire for intimacy is God given. One man and one woman married.

Our nation is plagued with demon lust and fornication. So many "shack up" without getting married. Children are born out of wedlock and not given proper love and care. Children are abused and God is aware of these things and I think he will give special grace to those abused and accused children.

Mat 18:10  Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

Jesus breaks curses; come to him who loves you and rid your heart from the accusing spirit of the devil. To those who think that you must fornicate, this is not God in you. Even though the nation turns away from God allowing most every evil of lust; it will destroy your soul and the soul of the nation. Come to Jesus and be cleansed by the Blood of the Lamb. You can be free to love others as God loves us.

1 Cor 10:13  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.
