Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from IHOP awakening, 1/2/10 PM
“Some of you say: ‘God, commission me,’ but there’s pockets of darkness in your lives — secret, hidden sin.
I felt like the Lord gave me two words: lust and perversion — lust and perversion, immoral thinking — agreement with darkness — in areas of lust and pornography and perversion and perverse behavior, talking and lewd talk, immoral talk — filthy jokes — things that you watch, compromise in the things that you watch.
I’m not talking about the R-rated movies. I’m talking about the PG-13s — where you feed your spirit on perversion. I’m talking about certain sitcoms, TV shows where your spirit is being defiled by thinking in the ways of the world.
There is no room. There is nothing that darkness has to do with light. And you’re asking for power and there are areas of hidden compromise in your life.
The Lord is saying to you now: there is a window to repent. There is grace to repent and turn from that.
What has darkness to do with light? You’re saying, “God, send me as a messenger of light, but there’s a pocket of darkness in your soul.
I’m not talking about great introspection: “Lord, where is it?” I’m talking about those things that the Holy Spirit brings to mind right now. …
You need to confess that as sin before the Lord, right now. I encourage you to confess it before the Lord, right now. Make a determination in your heart to turn from it, right now.”
