The human body was fearfully and wonderfully made and designed for specific foods to maintain a healthy life from the cradle to the grave. The food that goes into the average western human body, is not considered edible by your creator. Evil men filled with greed are slowly killing millions as they sell inedible poisoned foods and then sell them overpriced poisonous drugs to correct the side effects of their poisonous food.
However, the label on each drug lists its own possible harmful side effects, because your wonderfully made body was not designed to ingest drugs. To add insult to injury there are no money back guarantees offered to the purchase of any food or drug even in the event of death.
As evil and insane as this is, there is a worse side effect that man experiences, the spiritual side effects of sin. First and least important is sins side effect to your body. Sin in the form of lust, exposes the human body to obesity, sexually transmitted diseases, alcoholism, and drug addiction to name a few.
Far worse than bodily side effects is the spiritual side effects. Beside the fact that you will never be able to feel the satisfaction of clean hands and a pure heart as the side effect of guilt weighs heavy on your soul, the eternal destiny of all those you love and care for is jeopardized. The worst side effect of all is the side effect of your sin on your children and grand children.
You may say, but they do not know of my sin, for my sin secret. This proves your ignorance of the spirit world. Demons are given an open door to attack your children both biological and spiritual, through your soul, when sin is allowed to reign. If you curse and swear, just listen to your children talk when they don’t know you are listening. If you lie, so will they, if you are immoral they will follow you, because the same demons that have access to you have access to them, through you unless they are redeemed. However if you “train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it,” Proverbs 22:6.
Now don’t be disheartened because, the redemptive part which makes things beautiful again. You can reverse all the spiritual side effects of sin by a total and complete surrender to Father’s will. It will not happen overnight but He said, “I will restore or replace for you the years that your sin has eaten up – the lust sins, the self esteem stripping sin, and the secret sins. These were all side effects of eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 26 And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you.
And My people shall never be put to shame. 27 And you shall know, understand, and realize that I am in the midst of Your family and that I the Lord am your God and there is none else. Because of your complete repentance you shall never be put to shame again. 28 And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions,” Joel 2:25-28. AMP.
Bottom line: Today your Godly sorrow and complete repentance can start to reverse everything, because the same door to your soul is now open for Holy Spirit and My angels to enter and clean up the mess the demons have made of your life. That door is used to enter all your children as well, both spiritual and biological. Do not go by what you see, do not try to do My work, for this will take time but you can be, “confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it in you and your children, right up until the day I return,” Philippians 1:6 KJV.
The side effect of your complete surrender is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23.
