The LGBTQ Insanity: Accept Or Reject (Part 2)

image.png

People get mad all the time.

Road rage. People stepping on your toe…….repeatedly and on purpose. Cutting in front of you on line. Calling you names that hurt.

Calling the sexually immoral “insane” doesn’t help, you might say.

Look at what you’re practicing. Ask yourself.

Is it normal or abnormal

Risking acquiring STDs and increase the chances with multiple sexual partners of acquiring an incurable disease? Ask yourself. Is this normal or abnormal?

My point isn’t to make you angry but to get you to see that what you’re practicing is irrational and insane.

Additionally, getting sane people to accept insanity isn’t good either.

Anger is “a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility.”

But what does anger have to to with insanity?

When someone rejects who you are and what you do, or tell you that what you’ve said or done is wrong or insane, it’s very easy for anyone involved in sin to get very angry.

When it comes to sin, humans are territorial.

When anyone makes a declaration that what a person is doing is wrong, it’s very instinctive to become defensive. So with every thing they have, they will use every available means to vilify and silence any voice that’s against the sin of homosexuality, bisexuality, transvestism, transgenderism, queer, gay, and other vile sins.

The war is about refusing and fighting against sanity.

Remember. Sanity means healthy.

Insanity means unhealthy.

Why do people involved in homosexuality fight against sanity?

Sexual sins is a preference, not a class of people, and it’s not a race of people.

Sexual sins is a choice.

In Genesis 4, Abel brought to the Lord an acceptable offering. A lamb. Cain chose to bring fruit from the ground as his offering to the Lord. The Lord accepted Abel’s offering because this is what the Lord required.

Cain’s offering was rejected because he brought an offering that wasn’t what the Lord required.

Genesis 4:2-7 (NKJV Strong’s) “Then she bore again, this time his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord.

Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat.

And the Lord respected Abel and his offering, but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell.

So the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen?

If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”

Cain was angry (furious).

But look at what Cain brought to the Lord.

Fruit from the ground that’s worth far less than a lamb.

But notice also that even though the Lord rejected Cain’s offering, the Lord asked Cain why was he angry. Whenever the Lord asks a question, He’s not looking for information because the Lord is omniscient. The purpose of the question is to get you to see yourself.

Cain, no doubt, worked very hard to impress the Lord and it didn’t work out so well. Enraged, his countenance or his face fell. In other words, Cain was happy and now, he’s steaming white hot mad at God.

Cain went to great lengths to make his offering presentable.

It’s like you’ve spent a lot of time in the beauty parlor and everything you’ve done wasn’t enough.

But also note that the Lord gave Cain the answer.

Sin is always at the heart of the issue.

An offering of the fruit of the ground cannot take away sin.

So Cain took his anger out on his brother.

Blood is what the Lord want but not the blood of his brother, Abel.

A lamb, sacrificed, takes away sin.

Leviticus 17:11 (NKJV Strong’s) “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.’

John 1:29 (NKJV Strong’s) “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”

Homosexuals are furious that you don’t accept their condition as normal.

Transgenders are furious that you don’t accept their surgical reassignment as normal.

It’s insane to bring to the Lord our condition of sin when the Lord Jesus gave His life to redeem ours, to be free from the guilt and power of sin.

We defiantly demand, with furious anger, that God and true believers of Jesus MUST “love” and they MUST accept our “fruit of the ground.”

We work for Jesus and it’s our job to put our lives on the line, shunning our reputation, to reach into the “fire” to pull many souls out of the flames of their sins before they fall into the eternal flames as punishment for shunning the salvation of the Lord.

Talk about rescuing people from the fire, notice this Scripture.

Jude 1:21-23 (NKJV Strong’s) “…keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.”

So the question to homosexuals is “Why do you get angry when the Lord desires to make you free from the guilt and power of sin?”

It’s irrational to be angry when a firefighter runs into a burning building to rescue you. In fact, many will say that it’s irrational for a firefighter to go into burning building. But a firefighter gets paid to put his life on the line to rescue people so they wouldn’t die.

What Jesus did for all man, He did FREE OF CHARGE.

What the Lord Jesus did for us can never be repaid for the debt we owe is beyond the calculation of price.

Sinless, perfect blood.

It’s irrational for the Lord God to send the Lord Jesus to die for the sin of the whole world so that we wouldn’t die in our sins………..uhuh…

Paul called this “The foolishness of God.”

God did something irrational and yes, insane to deliver us from our insanity.

God seen the insanity of man and did something we would consider to be irrational.

His divine love for man.

If God didn’t love us, He never would have sent His Son to die for our sin to free us. Jesus didn’t die for sin so we could continue in sin, He died and was resurrected from the dead as a demonstration of God’s love to deliver us from the guilt and power of sin.

Which is why the world hates the Lord without a cause.

The love of sin keeps many people in the grip of sin.

John 15:25 (NKJV Strong’s) “But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’”

What did the Lord do to you that makes you angry at the Lord?

Is it because He said in His Word that homosexuality is an abomination (detestable/disgusting)?

The reason why it’s disgusting and detestable is that it violates the order that God established. This established order by the Lord is enforced by consequential judgment called STDs. It’s important to note that there’s nothing to get mad or angry over.

Just like if a person violates the law, is tried in court, is found guilty, is convicted of violating that law, they’re sentenced.

Lawlessness is insanity.

It’s mental insanity or mentally unhealthy.

It’s rational to teach people that it’s insane to commit sex acts with the same sex. Committing sex acts with a minor in either gender, is immoral, insanity, and irrational, as well as sex with animals.

Clearly, this is insane.

Sadly, insanity (unhealthy), is pushed to be normal but just because someone or a group of people make convincing arguments that sexual immorality is normal, it doesn’t postpone or prevent consequential judgment in the form of STDs from being acquired.

You don’t have to be steaming white hot mad at God. God didn’t do anything to you, but for you.

So don’t get mad or angry.

Be glad that the Lord sends His people to loving warn and admonish others not to participate in that which is insane to bring people back to sanity.

Prayer: Lord, I recognize that homosexuality is an abomination. It’s detestable and disgusting in Your sight. I believe that You’ve sent Your Son to deliver and to make me free of sin. Lord, I repent. I ask You to forgive and pardon me as You’ve said in Your Word. You’re merciful and full of grace and truth. Forgive me for being angry at You without a cause. Holy Spirit, make me a new creation in Christ. Give me strength. For in Jesus, you always cause me to triumph in Christ. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Tampax In Boys Bathrooms In OR & The CA Governor Says Men CAN’T Get Pregnant

Matthew 19:4 (NKJV) “And He (Jesus) answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’

In the history of man, there’s NEVER been one male that ever menstruated.

In the history of women, there’s NEVER been one female that inseminated another woman.

It’s a biological impossibility for both.

Years ago, this would be preposterous for boys to even think that men could menstruate. It would be taboo for men to talk among women about a woman’s “cycle.”

Most young men that marry young never heard of the “cycle” until after marriage. The honeymoon would be nice. And then you find out that your wife is having menstrual cramps. In some cases, almost unbearable, and you can’t have sex because she’s having her period.

All of a sudden, a new dimension of the female anatomy comes into play.

You might be offended, but 5 decades ago, when boys would be boys, we would call other boys “sissies.” We would even joke about tampons. And then we would fight to prove that we weren’t sissies wearing tampons.

Even when your manhood was challenged, some of us had no clue about tampons. But today, boys and men are offended. In fact, a discrimination lawsuit may be filed against you because of your belief that as a male, you identify as a woman.

1 Corinthians 14:33 (NKJV) “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.”

The word “confusion” from Strong’s Dictionary of NT Words is

g0181. ἀκαταστασία akatastasia; from 182; instability, i.e. disorder: — commotion, confusion, tumult.
AV (5) – confusion 2, tumult 2, commotion 1;
instability, a state of disorder, disturbance, confusion

You see. God isn’t confused. God isn’t unstable. God isn’t in a state of disorder.

Fallen man is.

Isaiah 29:15-16 (NKJV) “Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the LORD, and their works are in the dark; They say, “Who sees us?” and, “Who knows us?” Surely you have things turned around! Shall the potter be esteemed as the clay; For shall the thing made say of him who made it, “He did not make me”? Or shall the thing formed say of him who formed it,”He has no understanding”?

You see. The world is confused. Not God. God knew exactly what He was doing when He created us. After Adam sinned against God, confusion came.

And the biggest thing that fallen man is doing is that they’re trying to get you to be just as confused as they are. And if you reject their confusion, it’s disinformation. It’s misinformation. It’s malicious information.

In other words, the truth is the enemy and the lie is your friend.

So the female Democratic governor of Oregon has decided to put tampons in boys bathrooms. But the male Democratic governor of California is arguing about Roe v Wade and stated that men aren’t women.

Can you see the contradiction?

A woman governor is telling boys that identify as a woman can have “cycles,” but the male governor is telling folks that men are not women and that they must defend the woman’s right to chose to kill a baby.

You will never see a man giving birth. He’s not equipped to give birth.

So don’t be fooled into thinking the way they think.

So in order for you to accept confusion, you must suppress the truth.

Romans 1:18-19 (NKJV) “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.”

The word “suppress” is defined from Strong’s Dictionary of NT Words…

g2722. κατέχω katechō; from 2596 and 2192; to hold down (fast), in various applications (literally or figuratively): — have, hold (fast), keep (in memory), let, x make toward, possess, retain, seize on, stay, take, withhold.

So the world is attempting to hold down the truth.

Isaiah 5:20-21 (NKJV) “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight!”

You see. In the confused mind of fallen man, they swap truth and the lie. Bitter for sweet. Light for darkness.

That’s why there’s an information war.

Now there will be preachers in the pulpit in the coming days that will accept this fallacy. They will say that if a man feels like a woman, they can go to the woman’s restroom. But you’ve opened to door for pedophilia and rape in the house of the Lord.

Folks. When you see a pastor accept the confusion of the world, he’s no longer a pastor. Or was never a pastor to begin with. You need to make for the exits.

But on the other hand, we have so called preachers that will never confront the sin of the sinners to keep them in their seats.

1 John 2:18-19 (NKJV) “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.”

The age that we’re living in is the age of the Antichrist.

But guess what?

1 John 4:1-6 (NKJV) “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,

and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them.

We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

So don’t be confused as the world.

1 Peter 3:13-17 (NKJV) “And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.”

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.

For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.”

1 Peter 4:1-6 (NKJV) “Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.

For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you.

They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.”

Pastoral Scandals. How Do They Happen?

How does a pastoral scandal take root?

Not in any order, but……

  1. When the slightest sin is never confessed.

2. When we ignore the slightest warning from the Holy Spirit.

3. When we deceive ourselves that we’re not being watched by God or others.

4. When porn and masturbation isn’t crucified.

5. When looking at women or men lustfully isn’t crucified, you’re unwilling to pluck out your eye or cut off your hand.

6. When exposure happens to the other pastor and not you.

7. When we take forgiveness, grace, and mercy for granted.

8. When we easily return to our folly.

9. When we suppress & forget God, His Word, and when the Christ was on His blood stained cross.

10. When we have no accountability partner.

11. When we don’t think that God would hold us accountable.

12. When we pretend repentance when we’re actually remorseful.

13. When we sneer and snicker at the penalty.

14. When, over time, we get over the chastisement and embarrassment.

15. When we call it a mistake instead of sin.

16. When we don’t believe God is offended.

17. When we don’t believe we’re a hypocrite.

18. When we don’t believe that God would pay us the wages of sin in hell.

More scandals will emerge. It’s just a matter of time.

On Assignment. Male Pastors Lurking For Vulnerable Women.

2 Peter 2:12-15 (NKJV) “But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime.

They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls.

They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children. They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness…”

In the Hillsong incident, the pastor was forced to resign because he was caught texting inappropriately to another woman.

It’s clear that the assignment works both ways. This pastor initiated contact which is a clear indication that he acted as a predator in search for a vulnerable woman.

There’s two sides to the those that are on assignment.

Immoral women and immoral men. Both are on assignment from satan.

For the man, that happens to be a pastor, he make take his time to make sure that he earns the trust of women or a targeted woman.

As long as he “seems” to be honest, holy, into God, into the Word, he may give that “safe” appearance. Then as soon as he feels that you’ve confided in him, he will take things to the next level.

At this point, he will feel confident in that false sense of security. If women aren’t careful, she will give in to his desires and regret it.

But the assignment happens both ways. It’s not always the woman’s fault unless she’s on assignment as well. But notice what Peter said.

They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls.

The place of vulnerability is around food and they look to entice “unstable souls.”

The word “unstable” means “unfixed.” It gives the idea that they’re not established in the Word of God.

The ones that are stable are established in their relationship with the Lord to the point that they see the enticement. They never let their guard down. They’re on the watch for evil in any form.

Women that come to the house of worship and are stable know these Scriptures….

James 4:7 (NKJV) “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

Ephesians 6:10-11 (NKJV) “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

And 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NKJV)
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…”

Never put your trust in any man (see Jeremiah 17:5-10).

Always seek out other women in the Lord for counseling that you trust, if you need counseling. Never put yourself in a vulnerable situation with men. Never give them your personal information. Ask the tough questions and leave no stone unturned.

Investigate, keep and guard your personal information, never relax your guard.

Even when other women are fishing for information because they many be working for that slick sexually immoral pastor.

Ending The Male & Female Confusion

Genesis 1:27 (NKJV) “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

Matthew 19:4 (NKJV) “And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’

Dr. Richard Levine, a male that was surgically changed as a transgender to be Dr. Rachel Levine was named “Woman of the Year” by USA Today.

The Babylon Bee put out its satire and called him “Man of the Year.” Twitter took action and blocked the Babylon Bee’s Twitter account, claiming that it violated their policy.

Which of course would be reaccessed as soon as The Babylon Bee removes the post.

The Babylon Bee refused to remove the post because they said (and I agree), truth isn’t hate speech.

Free speech is protected in the US Constitution. Satire is Constitutionally protected speech. Twitter is a private company.

Censuring free speech is unconstitutional.

Therefore, Twitter, and all attempts of private companies to censure free speech are afraid of free speech, especially truth.

Richard Levine is a man. His biological make up, DNA, birth certificate, retina, and chromosomes testify of his biological make up that came from Almighty God.

The world wants us to accept what God rejects.

Isaiah 29:15-16 (NKJV) “Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the LORD,
And their works are in the dark;
They say, “Who sees us?” and, “Who knows us?”
16 Surely you have things turned around!
Shall the potter be esteemed as the clay;
For shall the thing made say of him who made it,
“He did not make me”?
Or shall the thing formed say of him who formed it,
“He has no understanding”?”

The world wants us to believe that God made the error. That a man is trapped in woman’s body, and a woman is trapped in a man’s body. That God is confused. 

1 Corinthians 14:33 (NKJV) “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.”

So because God is not the author of confusion, someone else is.

The devil and his children.

This isn’t a threat, but a plain fact that takes place 150,000 times each day. 

The administrators of Twitter will have their account closed according to Hebrews 9:27. Everyone will have their account closed according to Hebrews 9:27.

Richard Levine is not a woman. He is a man dressing and surgically altered to appear like a woman. This is a scientific fact that can’t be denied.

Mr. Thomas questioned his gender identity and was surgically altered to be a woman. He’s a swimmer, swimming against biological women. It’s no contest. A biological woman has yet to beat him. It’s impossible because he’s a male. Like all transgenders, the biological make up can’t be altered.

Even when you take drugs and hormone altering drugs, the DNA, retina, chromosomes remain the same. Just as God designed it to be from the beginning.

Follow the science, as they say.

Even science confirms this inevitable fact. 

You can be ignorant. Being ignorant is free speech.

But you can’t make me go along with being ignorant.

You can block my account, but you can’t end truth and the reasonable science of basic human biology.

This isn’t hate speech. This is stating the truthful facts.

Sexual Immorality, When A Pastor Crosses The Line (pt. 1).

The qualifications of a bishop (overseer, presbyter, elder, pastor) are clear.

1 Timothy 3:1-7 (NKJV) This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach;

not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous; one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?);

not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

Why do pastors cross the line?

Lust in the heart.

James 1:14-15 is clear.

James 1:14-15 (NKJV) “But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

Within the hearts is a sexual desire. I said hearts.

The male and the female.

Immoral women have a sexual desire to be touched and they become “passive hunters.” Provocatively dressed, they’re prepared to entice a “powerful” speaker.

At the same time, the male is an “active hunter.” They seek out a woman for a sexual conquest.

When they cross at an intersection, all it takes is for a natural attraction encounter, and the two, unless the pastor is “temperate,” they will connect.

The sexually immoral pastor will look for reasons to engage in adultery if they’re married, or if they’re single, they will will look for reasons to engage in fornication. The same applies to bisexuals or homosexuality.

Crossing at the intersection is deliberate.

It’s intended to get their attention. Once their attention is gained, the planning is in its first stage. This is where one sizes up and get intelligence on their vulnerabilities and play them to their advantage.

It goes without saying that most conquests are demonically inspired.

We see this with Samson and Delilah. Potiphar’s wife and Joseph. Ahab and Jezebel. Jezebel in the book of Revelation.

Whenever there’s a personality powerful person, the attraction is used against them. Even more prevalent, is when a holy man of God is used mightily by God, it will not take long for an “ASSIGNMENT” from satan to be initiated.

So a male pastor, married or single, must institute safe guards, guardrails, and self discipline to remain established in the Lord in personal holiness to avoid sexual immorality.

Proverbs 31:1-3 (NKJV) “The words of King Lemuel, the utterance which his mother taught him:
What, my son?
And what, son of my womb?
And what, son of my vows?
Do not give your strength to women,
Nor your ways to that which destroys kings.”

The one place where men give their strength to women is in the bedroom.

The bedroom is the place where the heart of men is captured. His power is used against him.

Seduction unlocks the heart, which unleashes his power. He will say “yes” to almost everything when you give him sex.

Every man that yielded their strength to women were destroyed.

Proverbs 7:25-27 (NKJV) “Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways,
Do not stray into her paths;
For she has cast down many wounded,
And all who were slain by her were strong men.
Her house is the way to hell,
Descending to the chambers of death.”

Men seldom see the set up. Blinded by a desire to be bolstered in front of people. Blinded by flattery, he doesn’t see that the beginning stages of being played are in place.

We all want to be nice to people, especially women, but if you’re not watching and praying, it’s just a matter of time before the trap closes.

Being hospitable must never turn into a sexual conquest. Pastors should be nice to people, but the safe guards, guardrails, self disciplines must remain in place.

Pastors can be approachable and friendly, but you must never allow yourself to sexually cross the line.

A woman’s beauty is their world, but it could be a tool to get into your heart.

A woman’s genuine vulnerabilities could also be taken advantage by a male pastor that turns into a predator/wanderer. Women that confide in a male pastor could be taken advantage.

It’s not all a woman’s fault, unless, on her part, the intent to deceive is present.

She could appear with a seemingly legitimate vulnerability, but she could also use it as a tool to get to the heart of a pastor.

With false preachers and pastors, the whole intent of their “ministries” is to exercise such influence that unsuspecting women will give themselves to a predator, and come under a man’s personality and be used sexually.

That’s why it’s important for women to have guardrails, safe guards and discipline themselves. When you hear or see something that’s trying to attract you to them, have enough sense to disconnect and run from that place.

A married man that was an apologist was attracted to a married woman. She was attracted to his ability to explain the Scriptures. He appeared legitimate, with no noticeable alarms with the use of Scripture.

He rightfully divided the Scriptures. He was the rave of the modern Christian world.

With this woman, she connected with him on the internet. It wouldn’t be long before he would spring the trap. She started to see something and she broke off. She was wise to explain it to her husband. This apologist crossed the line and accused her of sending sexually explicit photos, which was a lie to cover up what he was doing.

He was sexually setting her up.

His world renown organization declared him as a man of integrity and that he would never cross the line.

While these allegations were vigorously defended, pictures emerged of a sullen looking individual. He was diagnosed and was dying of cancer. After his death, more was uncovered and his impeccable, blameless reputation as a “man of integrity” was destroyed.

While he was alive, they’ve surrounded his life like an army would with wagons.

As an unbiased investigation ensued, and after his death, the real person emerged.

His secondary sexual lifestyle became plain for all to see. The organization made a terrible mistake in surrounding him.

After the allegations became substantiated, their worst fears came to light.

He was a sexual predator.

It would only be after his passing that the truth emerged.

It’s concluded that his body was delivered to satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit would be saved (see 1 Corinthians 5:1-5).

Women have a duty to remain pure before the Lord as well as the pastor.

Neither one, for the sake of His name, should cross the line.

At The End Of The Rope In Your Marriage

There was an elderly couple that were holding hands. The wife was lying on the couch and her husband was holding her hand.

It was her last moments in her life and all she wanted at that moment was the touch of her husband’s hand. She wanted to savor the moment of knowing that she was loved by her husband.

A few moments later, assured of her husband’s caring touch that she knew would be there, she closed her eyes for the final time.

The years of being together for decades, came to an end. She made her last moment with him to count.

As the saying goes when a minister performs the vows, ““Till death, do you part.”

We don’t realize the power of these words until they become a reality.

With a husband and wife, there will be times when you wished you had another mate, and it’s because of certain events that strain a relationship. For either the male or the female, there’s that one moment of contemplating adultery.

For men, all it takes is when the eyes start searching for flesh.

After a traumatic moment in the marriage, a man will look to “reward” himself in sex. Dr. Archibald Hart stated that “Sex is the best pick me up.” When a man wants to reward himself or make himself feel better, he intuitively look for sex because of the reward drug, “dopamine,” is excreted into the blood stream and gives man a pleasurable satisfaction.

He seldomly will look to the person that they may have had an argument with (the wife) for sex. He will usually start looking a sexually provocative women, either on the street, at work, on the Internet.

In secret, he lusts after the flesh of women. In secret, he will fantasize about having sex with her, engulfed in masturbation. But the demons are always there to suggest to you to take it to the next level.

To strip joints where prostitutes, who are porn stars, will be available.

But the completely obsessed man will take things too far.

On the level of a Ted Bundy.

He becomes a serial rapist, and will take it to the level of rape and murder.

This is the world of sexual immorality where men will go to extremes because of an event in a marriage.

For wives, they feel disconnected from the husband because of certain events, whether caused by either party. She will look for a man that would sit down and confide with. She finds a man.

Probably a professional like a marriage counselor, a pastor or minister, or a lawyer. She wants to be listened to. Reassured. Comforted. Protected. Loved.

Some of these “professionals” are either “predators, or wanderers.”

Perhaps, they too, are in a strained relationship and take things to the next level.

Looking to take advantage of a vulnerable woman. At the right moment, he incrementally secures her trust.

Then, he moves from behind the desk, to sit next to her. He puts his hand on her hand. Then rubbing his hand, to holding her, then to kissing her, then the bed room.

She realizes her mistake but it’s too late. She gives in to her vulnerabilities, and the rest is history.

All because your marriage was on the ropes.

Sinning against God is no excuse. Hebrews 13:4 is clear.

The husband and the wife need to reconcile their differences before their differences turn into an irreconcilable difference.

Many couples assume that they’re at the end of the rope, not realizing that they have more rope to go.

According to the Lord Jesus in Matthew 19:1-9, there’s only one reason for divorce.

Sexual immorality.

But what about verbal abuse?

Consistent and constant verbal abuse is an anger management situation. You have to get at the root of his or her verbal abuse. It may take competent professional counseling to dig deep into the beginning of where it all started.

The husband or the wife have to choose to expose themselves in counseling to get to the root of the problem. If they don’t, it’s not recommended that they remain in a relationship because things could go south real quick.

But what about physical abuse?

This is assault. And even though there’s no Scriptural support for this to be the reason together a divorce, make no mistake about it. It is battery.

It’s domestic violence.

This is where it gets dangerous, even for police officers that show up to keep the peace.

If you don’t leave a domestic violence dispute, you may end up dead.

The sad thing is when the emotions and adrenaline of the moment subsides, they come back under the roof. Then it starts all over again. They usually don’t learn from the last incident.

You deliberately or even unintentionally do something that you know or don’t know that this triggers the event or events.

In marriages, behavioral changes may be difficult for people because of several factors.

Your upbringing, certain acts and habits that may be pleasant to you, but offensive to others. When there’s a refusal to change for the mutual benefit of the relationship, this is where the fireworks may happen.

Now there may be a tolerance for a season, but after the season of silently putting up with the difference comes to an end, it’s like a slow fire.

You smell smoke and then a secondary explosion is the one that rocks the building.

At the beginning of the marriage, you’re learning each other’s habits, patterns, and cycles. Your likes and dislikes are like lions, marking their territory. You breach the boundary, the lion gives a warning roar. Then when you continue to breach the territory, after the warning, the fighting begins.

Winner takes all.

But that’s animals. We’re humans. We’re to communicate our likes, and dislikes in a civil manner.

It’s amazing how quickly couples forget that they’re in Christ.

When you have disputes, it’s not the time to declare that you’re at the end of the rope. It’s the time to go back to your vows and reach deep into loving each other as Christ loves the church, and for the wife, like the church, to submit to Christ.

Besides, if it’s another woman you want, you will be irreparably burned and shamed. For the wife, your harlotry will embarrass you.

Finally, the world does revolving door weddings. Remember the woman at Jacob’s well in Samaria? She was searching for a man to satisfy her, she had 5 husbands and the one that she was with, wasn’t her husband.

It took the Lord to reveal to her that continuous adultery is unsatisfying. The Lord revealed to her that only the water that Jesus had would satisfy the longing in her heart.

And this is where there’s more rope in your marriage than you think.

For only the Lord Jesus could satisfy us completely.

It’s also stunning that when we look elsewhere that we select what we had.

It underscores one thing.

What you had was God’s best.

So when you’re at the end of your rope in marriage, just know that there’s plenty of rope left.

Fight for your marriage.

When Your Husband Is Watching Porn Or Watching Other Women

Proverbs 27:20 (NKJV)

“Hell and Destruction are never full;
So the eyes of man are never satisfied.”

Job 31:1 (NKJV)

“I have made a covenant with my eyes;
Why then should I look upon a young woman?”

Some of you will blush, and that’s natural. But if we’re really serious about keeping our holiness before the Lord, we will address our flesh issues.

Men are sight stimulated. If men are attracted to women, it’s because of his ability to search to look at someone that caught his eyes. But a man is either looking to lust or admiring beauty.

This is a very fine line because in less than a nano second, the thoughts of his mind can easily cross the line into lusting with his heart.

Matthew 5:27-30 (NKJV)

“You have heard that it was said to those of old, You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.

And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.

So how will a wife or girlfriend know that your husband or boyfriend is looking to lust after another woman?

Sometimes, a man will look a long time to “soak” in the view. But if you’re truthful, it takes a man less than a second to store what his eyes have seen.

There’s essentially a combination of three places that a man will look to lust.

  1. The eyes and hair.
  2. The waist and the hips.
  3. The cleavage, legs, crotch, and the gluteus Maximus.

I know that the blushing has started, but if you’re brutally honest with yourself, this is exactly what lust is about. But this is how a man is attracted to the beauty of another woman for the purpose of having an immoral sexual encounter.

Either he will fantasize about it, or take things to the next level and engage in adultery.

Disconnections are clear when he’s no longer sexually attracted to you. For whatever reason. But it’s about his heart relationship with God.

To commit adultery in the flesh, he must commit adultery against God.

It all boils down to what’s in the heart of man.

Matthew 15:18-20 (NKJV)

“But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man.”

The eyes of a man is the door to his heart and mind.

Matthew 6:22-23 (NKJV)

“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

So the intent of the heart drives him and his eyes betrays or justifies him.

It takes a while to train yourself to watch your husband’s eyes. But the moment that you catch him, you can’t blow up in his face on the spot because it’s not wise to create a scene.

If he’s showed violent tendencies, it’s best to wait until there’s a more appropriate time to confront him.

But eventually, when you see that he’s consistently looking at women, and doing it in front of your face, there comes a point where you need to say something.

As far as porn is concerned, he will not signal to you that he’s watching porn because he’s not just watching porn and then he turns it off.

He’s masturbating while being stimulated with his eyes. He’s pretending to have sex with that image. So as a wife, if you’re wondering why there’s no intimacy, this is where he is.

But he may have taken it to another level.

He may be paying for sex with prostitutes who are involved in porn, or are high end escorts, or adult club dancers.

This is fornication, adultery, idolatry, which is covetousness (see Colossians 3:5 and Exodus 20:14 & 17).

This is grounds for divorce (see Matthew 19:9).

A husband must not give in to his desires. He must crucify his flesh. When it comes to sex with another woman, the end will always be the same. There’s no real satisfaction achieved.

But let’s return to the heart and mind.

Ephesians 2:1-3 (NKJV)

And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,

among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.

James 1:14-15 (NKJV)

“But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

So what’s a wife to do?

If you choose to confront him, you need to understand that this is a man’s high place. He may have claimed to be saved, claim to love God and His Word, but his flesh isn’t crucified. The husband will fight to keep this stronghold.

Sex is a very powerful tool. When immorality sets in, the dopamine that is secreted into the blood stream feels good and to suddenly go at him when he’s unrepentant, it will be a very volatile moment.

You must be prepared for the fact that he will be in complete denial because it’s just like when the light comes on, or taking a toy away from a child. The man will do everything in his power never to surrender.

And that’s where the Word and prayer must be your place of combating the forces of the will of man and demons. It’s difficult to do prayer and the Word because you’re emotionally distraught. You’re completely devastated. An act of deception and betrayal took place and your world fell apart.

Discovery hurts.

But you can’t remain hurt. It can’t go on forever. There comes a point where something has to be done.

And this is where God incrementally bring things into his life to break him.

When God breaks a man, either he will submit to the chastisement of the Lord, falling on the stone, or be grounded into powder.

Matthew 21:44 (NKJV)

“And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.”

God know just what will break a man, but also, it’s known for man to ignore that God is using every means necessary to save him. Because we must remember. His soul is at stake.

Yes, your marriage is at stake too, but should he remain unrepentant, his soul will be lost.

Hopefully, he will turn from his wicked ways and return to the Lord with a repentant heart, and eventually take serious steps to repair his relationship with you.

Hillsong. A Haven For Sexual Immorality Spirits?

The leader of Hillsong, Brian Houston, has been charged with child sex abuse.

What’s been happening, not just at Hillsong, but all around the world, is a strong spirit of lust is operating in many places that purport to be true houses of worship.

Try not to skip reading this entire chapter.

2 Peter 2 (NKJV)

But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.

They’ll be among the people that will secretly bring in destructive heresies. They hold their cards to their chest and then put the cards on the table after they feel secure enough that they’ve won your trust.

How are they doing it now? They sing great Bible affirming songs. That’s how they lure the unsuspecting. After your emotions are high, you’re disarmed. Your guard is down, and that’s when you’re the most vulnerable.

And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.

Many will follow their destructive ways. MANY. The mega church. Not all of them (2000+ is considered mega). We don’t throw out the baby with the bath water. But when you have a large audience, it’s ripe for false doctrine and its teachers. Then out of no where. They blaspheme the truth by establishing their own personal doctrine as the doctrine above the Bible.

Then by covetousness, they exploit you with deceptive words. You’re disarmed. You give beyond your means. You max out your credit card. Empty your bank account. You spend only to get robbed. God sends a word of rebuke and repentance (Revelation chapters 2 and 3), but they refuse to repent.

For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly;

Just like Sodom and Gomorrah, and Noah’s days. Noah preached for 100 years. Why? God was long-suffering, kind, merciful, and compassionate. Yet, they went their way of immorality. Tick Tock. Time’s up for them. With Sodom and Gomorrah, when the 2 angels came into the city, that should have been a big signal to repent or be destroyed.

and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment,

and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries, whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord.

But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime. They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you,

having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children. They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

When you see the video, married men, full of lust. They can’t keep their hands off of other women. In one instance, one man working for Hillsong, had eyes of adultery and cannot cease from sin, enticed a young woman that was unstable. How was she unstable when she was trapped behind a locked door?

An immoral man knows who to look for. Women that do not have their wits about them. Not every woman is like this. The women in this report didn’t appear to be unstable. Stable women can see that they’re being targeted and will NEVER put themselves in a vulnerable position.

but he was rebuked for his iniquity: a dumb donkey speaking with a man’s voice restrained the madness of the prophet. These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.

For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage.

Did you see the doctrine in use? “You’re free.” “While they promise them liberty.”

And through this doctrine, many are deceived. Just as Peter said, they’re slaves of corruption to bring others into bondage.

For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.

People come out of one mess of sin and then end up in another. Not only those that were sadly targeted and abused, but the ones that promise to never be caught in bondage again, only to return to bondage to commit more corruption and sexual sins.

But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: “A dog returns to his own vomit,” and, “a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”

Peter, by the Holy Spirit, accurately describes the condition of ANY house of worship that sing great songs and preach strange doctrines, and then in private, commit secret sexual sins.

It was hard to watch 60 Minutes Australia’s report on Hillsong Australia and New York.

There’s two sides to every story, but this story was compelling. But just because something is “compelling” (Christie B Ford/Kavanaugh), it’s doesn’t make it true. Even a compelling lie sounds true until fully examined and the truth emerges.

The leader of Hillsong, Australia, Brian Houston, has been charged with child sex abuse.

The leader of Hillsong New York, Carl Lentz, committed adultery.

So far, the end result isn’t repentance from dead works but perversion.

Years ago, the Lord told me that it wouldn’t be the last. And He’s been true to His word because immoral men and women are around.

I’m convinced that sexual immorality is the “high place” of satan’s dwelling.

Why?

in 2008, there were 298 million Internet porn sites. Today, there’s well over 302 million Internet porn sites and growing.

So between 2008 and 2021, 4 million NEW porn sites, or more, have been added to the World Wide Web in the United States.

Now Brian Houston was charged and if the charges are frivolous, then whoever falsely charged him, are liars, bearing false witness.

While there may be a good possibility that Brian never watched porn, it would be slanderous to conclude an assumption that porn fueled his alleged habits of child sexual abuse.

However, there’s a good chance that Carl Lentz and Brian Houston may have been watchers of porn, whether in the past, or current. Usually, they lead to fulfilling their sexual immoral fantasies. They move from fantasy to reality. Or perhaps they were involved in both.

Should Brian Houston be found guilty, God gave him space to repent and they refused.

Pornography In Public School Libraries

Your child is given an assignment by the teacher and to complete the assignment, your child goes to the school library. But a book catches the child’s attention. At first it looks innocent because there’s children on the cover, but inside the book is sexually explicit content.

By deliberate intent, your child has been exposed to the high place of demonic activity.

Sexual immorality.

Once these images are placed in the brain, the child’s inquisitiveness takes over.

Few children will tell their parents what they’ve seen because of the embarrassment, but it doesn’t matter. The images are evil seeds, planted within them, only to become a harvest for later.

It’s bad enough that we have a problem with SOME parents that see no harm but SOME of these parents are sexually immoral themselves.

The continued indoctrination should be alarming to most parents. When children become the target, all bets are off the table. To the devil and his children, children are NOT off limits. Children are the most vulnerable because they’re very impressionable. In this day and age, when something is seen, it takes less than a nano second for any image to do its damage.

Pornography, even in a world gone crazy over Covid, is, no doubt, affecting adults. With nothing to do, and with no work, pornography and masturbation is the place where most men and women go to access the dopamine in the brain to feel good.

But now, with the fear mongering of the media and pharmaceuticals, we see that it doesn’t stop sexual immorality.

For centuries, pedophilia has been the perversion of men and women. But the grooming process is in places where we thought were off limits to children.

Homosexuals can’t reproduce because scientifically (believe the science), men cannot reproduce. It takes a biological woman to be inseminated and after the course of time, give birth.

Even homosexuals admit that they have to go the surrogacy route in order to have children.

So indoctrination is happening several ways but there’s two primary ways.

Male and male or female and female in the home, under the guise of wanting a “family“, or in public schools.

Good parents will attend community school board meetings to demand answers and to demand the removal of all sexually explicit material. If they’re not removed, then the child gets pulled out of that school. Home schooling is a challenge because the parent has to remain home and become unable to work.

So what is a parent to do?

If you love your child, no sacrifice is off the table. The war against the child is ongoing and if a parent is to spare the child of the ungodly wicked world of sexual immorality, a good parent will lay everything on the line to protect the child.

If the parent does nothing to protect the child, then the parent is complicit with the rulers of the darkness of this world. A parent must never give in or give up.

The moment that the parent gives in or gives up, it’s game over.

Giving In To Your Sexual Struggles?

Galatians 5:16-21 (NKJV)

“I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Notice what Paul by the Holy Spirit shared about these things. In particular, adultery, fornication (porn), uncleanness (extravagant immorality-escort), lewdness (unbridled shameless lust).

Sexual immorality always takes you further than you’re willing to go. To levels never imagined. If we give into to one level of sexual immorality, we find ourselves going further, and further.

But every lustful desire have a genesis. It starts out with perceived innocence and then leads you into places of no shame.

Sexual struggles is common in many believers. The urges and impulses within the flesh and the desire of the mind to be sexually satisfied. We call it a struggle but what is it. It’s only a struggle IF we’re found fighting against it for a season and when the mind is convinced that it will give us unspeakable pleasure, the struggle ends.

Look at what Paul said.

“The flesh lusts (wars/is hostile) against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh.”

It’s a constant battle and either one must win. And yes, the man that willingly desires to fulfill the lusts of the flesh and mind will succeed against the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God is battling with your mind and is bringing every one of His resources to get you to see that you’re heading to violate the covenant relationship with the Lord.

Sin violates the covenant relationship and it breaks your fellowship with God.

When you’re convinced that a moment of pleasure is worth it, the Holy Spirit didn’t accept defeat. Here’s why?

Unless God requires your soul, He will return and give you 1 John chapter 1 and chapter 2:1-6.

The Holy Spirit wants to teach you how to gain victory over sin so you struggle with sin no more.

The struggle happens even after you have learned how to escape when the Holy Spirit teaches you. but you’ve learned to quickly respond to the Holy Spirit, as opposed to ignoring Him.

1 Corinthians 10:12-13 is very clear.

“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”

In order to give in to sexual struggles, you have to convince yourself that the benefits outweigh the risks.

But what is the true risk?

Falling into sin. You see, Romans 6:23 is the payment.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

When we believe we could get away with it, we’re not thinking about the wages. That’s how the pleasures of sin blind our minds. We give in because we’ve convinced ourselves that our salvation sealed us in such a way, that we practice unrighteousness with impunity.

We guarantee that while a person sins, there’s a 100% certainty that everyone looks over their shoulder.

Can you say with 100% certainty, that you got away with it? That God will not bring a charge against you? That’s God will “wink” at it?

The 10 Commandments is the “knowledge of sin.”

The only way to get 100% certainty is trusting in the shed blood of Jesus and your repentance.

But there’s also the willingness to depart from iniquity. Not continue to participate in it after repentance from dead works and faith towards God. Then living a sanctified life for the rest of your days.

What makes a Christian a Christian?

A clear departure from sin. But you can’t do this on your own, according to Ephesians 2:8-10 and Titus 3:5.

The absolute truth that you’ve been born again is a clear departure from sin, and obedience to the commandments of Jesus according to Matthew 7:21-29 and James 1:22-27.

In 1 John 3, we see that believers need to walk in this.

1 John 3:4-9 (NKJV)

“Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.

Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

When we see difficult passages like this that require more of us, it’s because we allow our struggles to talk us out of obedience to difficult passages that require more of us.

We easily surrender to the impossibility of this passage. But how come we say regularly that “with God all things are possible,” but we put a disclaimer on 1 John 3?

Is it possible to be born of GOD, and not sin?

Look at Proverbs 4:23 and 1 John 5:18-19.

The problem is what we allow and meditate on. We never focus on what the Lord requires of us that would cost us.

The other side is that we focus too much on our ability to produce without the help of the Lord. We do it with our own strength and power and in moments of weakness, we give in to our struggles.

Jesus said in John 15:5, “….without Me you can do nothing.”

The Holy Spirit gives us the grace that we need to run to the Savior and to His Word to overcome and have victory over our minds and flesh.

Self discipline is the ability of the believer to rely on the help of the Holy Spirit to control the flesh and mind.

Galatians 5:22-26 (NKJV)

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”

1 Corinthians 9:27 (NKJV)

“But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.”

When we work together with the Holy Spirit, the Lord will show us what we need to look for, listen to the Holy Spirit’s warning, and obey the Holy Spirit every time. When we choose to listen to the Holy Spirit every time, it’s possible not to sin.

But you have to be willing to listen to the Holy Spirit EVERY TIME.
