MASOCHISTIC MASKS *1 Pet. 2:16
Has anyone seen the new trend within our youth? Has anyone notice how dark "church events" have gotten? Women wearing their nails like long claws, more and more young people are showing up to Jr and senior proms wearing masochistic masks. Ministries having functions where adults are wearing these same masks, while others blow fire during service calling it "prophetic creative arts".
This is no coincidence but a prophetic revelation of what's not to come but already here. There is an unmasking being done within the body of Christ. There is a mask that covers a multitude of spirits. This disguise is linked to a dangerous system of perversion. This mask or cloak of maliciousness if you will, that gives occasion to our fleshly desires is called, masochism.
Masochism derives from sexual gratification from one's own pain or humiliation. Enjoying an activity that appears to be painful or tedious. "masochistic sexual fantasies". Masochism is a term and act that emerged in the late 19th century. Named after the late Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch (1835–95), a Austrian novelist who described it and added..ism. The other associated term would be "Sadism". Sadism's origin springs from the name of the Marquis de Sade (1740–1814).
Our mental state as a body of believers has been overtaken and altered by sexual and sexual perversion. Relations through pain (Sexual masochism) is sweeping through the church and no one sees it, or worse, does but doesn't address it for whatever reason. Many have their own personal gratification through and by pain they are caused or they have caused others. They hang around or associate themselves with people, places, and things that cause them pain because they get pleasure from the attention that pain brings them. Ministry masochists take joy when others fall.
(Prov. 24:17-18; 1 Cor. 13:6)
MANIFESTOS of MASOCHISM are these...
* SEXUAL MASOCHISM, a medical condition in which experiencing pain or humiliation is required for sexual arousal.
* SADOMASOCHISM, giving or receiving pleasure from the receipt or infliction of pain or humiliation.
* AUTOSADISM is inflicting of pain or humiliation on oneself.
Rooted in pride and ego, masochistic behavior is not all physical, it's also verbal and psychological....
* How one thinks of themselves or others * How one talks to themselves or others. * How one allows another to think about them, talk about them and or to them.
The church falls heavily into this category. Many love to be degraded and talk down to over the pulpit. They love when someone in higher authority tells them how to rule themselves, their house, etc. It turns them on to know someone else is in control.
BDSM is a variety of often erotic practices or roleplaying involving bondage, discipline, dominance & submission, sadomasochism, and other related interpersonal dynamics.
* B/D- Bondage & Discipline * D/S- Dominance & Submission * S/M- Sadism & Masochism
BDSM..deals heavily in self identification. Our youth today are going to great lengths to dress as the opposite sex, going to their proms in caskets and wearing these masochistic masks. BDSM also infiltrates our society and ministries with sexual violence, psychological illness and deviant behavior. There's nothing new under the sun. These types of behaviors can be found within the pages of the biblical if one would just look through the lenses of the Holy Spirit. The beheading the prophet John the Baptist was fueled by a sexual lust (pleasure) of Herod's heart and courts not just a murder. Even Christ was crucified by a culture overrun by sadomasochistic that undoubtedly took pleasure in beating, mocking and killing our Lord. (Mk. 6:22-29; Lk. 22:63-23:12)
Those who wear masochistic masks are cloaked by maliciousness. Someone who is malicious means they don't just make bad things happen, that's an understatement, they love to make bad things happen. Their pleasure principle is pain. Though disguised, every spirit leaves a trail of footprints, their character tell-alls are; sneaky, seductive, touchy-feely, domineering, being spiteful, vindictive, vicious, catty, beady-eyes, malevolent, vixenish and or leering.
The world's "50 shades of grey" mentality is becoming more of a reality within the body of Christ. These beat me, hurt me, make me feel cheap attitudes must be addressed. We must rise up to fight these demonic strongholds or many will continued to be raped, molested and destroyed by religious and perverted slave masters, while being made to believe it's good for them.
