Some of you have moved in faith very quickly, and My Spirit is using you greatly. Some of you are doing things that older saints still dream of doing, things like healing the sick, casting out devils and preaching with power. These are great accomplishments in the kingdom, especially when you have had no spiritual a background. All the glory goes to Me, and you rightly do that. You have refused the money temptation, the return to drug and alcohol temptation, and you have refused to steal my glory, and I commend you for this!
Be aware that the enemy has more tests up his sleeve to try to bring you down. There is one that has brought down the mightiest of My men, they failed the hormone test. Your gifts and your high and holy calling are very attractive to the opposite sex, especially women. The world is full of whoremongers, and a holy man is a rare gem and desired by many beautiful women. Let this be a warning: Keep yourself from the evil woman, and from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.  Do not Lust after her beauty in your heart; neither let her break you down with her eyelids.
 Listen closely man of God; by means of a whorish woman, greater men than you have been brought to nothing more than a piece of bread, to be chewed up and spit out: Take notice that the adulteress will hunt for the precious life of God in you.  Be honest now, can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?  Can you walk on hot coals, and your feet not be burned?  So is he that goes in to his neighbor’s wife; if you ever touch her you will not be innocent” Proverbs 6:24-29.
Samson the strongest man on earth, failed the test! David, a man after My own heart, failed the test! Solomon the wisest man on earth, failed the test! Even though these great men failed the test, you can pass it! “If you through the Spirit will mortify the deeds of the body, you will pass the hormone test and go on living under My anointing. You are no longer a debtor to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if you live after the flesh, by letting your hormones rule, you will die” Romans 8:12-13.
These are like the days of Noah, where there are no boundaries and sexual sin was as common as eating food. Pretending you are so spiritual that this temptation could never effect you, makes you a prime target for the enemy. I have given you the power and wisdom to flee youthful lust. 2 Timothy 2:22 “Every morning, if you by My mercy, will present your body a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto Me, which is only your reasonable service, you will always pass every hormone test!” Romans 12:1.
