LGBT-Straight: Hopelessness To Hope, Because Hope Doesn’t Disappoint

Despondent? Depressed? In Despair? Hopeless? Many of us caught in Secret Sexual Sins have endured the same emotions. Even to the point of contemplating suicide. We’ve been there. It’s not a good feeling. Scores of people have gone down this same path to be free. That’s what suicide is about. Looking to be free. But there is a better Way out to true and lasting freedom.

Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life….

Jesus is the Way to hope. There are many that are caught in the world of sexual immorality that are in over their heads in despair, passed by despondency, and is really struggling in depression. Many have committed suicide and may never find peace. The body may be laid to rest, but the soul that sins, it shall die. Death, not in the sense of closure, but death as far as separation from this life of shame and unbeknownst to many, it also is a separation from God forever.

You do not have to go out like that. In fact, you do not have to go out in suicide.

There is hope in Jesus!

The suicide wasn’t the sin that sends people into a Christ-less eternity. It’s the rejection of the salvation from sin provided on the cross of Jesus that was rejected. That’s the sin that will send people to hell. The sins committed is the unfruitful works of a sinful life.

The sins committed by anyone outside of Christ only underscores our need to be born again. To be born again in Jesus is our only sure hope of lasting freedom, healing, and emancipation from the power of darkness.

In Romans 6:23, Paul said, “The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

When a person works, they get paid wages.

But God offers a gift.

A free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

When you are working to sin, doesn’t it feel like hard labor?

Jesus did all the labor in carrying the sin nature of all humanity on the cross. If you could count every human that existed, He took upon Him every man and every sin man has ever committed.

His work on the cross was a labor of love that will never be matched.

All you have to do is receive the gift. You do not have to work for this because Jesus did all the work for you.

“…in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Many will say, that you are stressing me out even further.

Not a chance. We just want to let you know your options.

Sin brings death but God offers eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. There is nothing to be stressed out about when you have the option in this life to receive eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. He is the only Way out.

For so long you have believed a lie that in homosexuality, or sexual immorality, it’s going to be better. By holding onto that lie, you are only wasting precious time because Paul said this in Romans 5:4,

Now hope does not disappoint…

Listen to the lead in Scripture out of the Amplified Bible…

“And character [of this sort] produces [the habit of] joyful and confident hope of eternal salvation. Such hope never disappoints or deludes, or shames us…”

In the lifestyle of homosexuality or any sexually sinful relationships, there is no hope. The search for hope in illicit relationships always disappoints, deludes, and brings tremendous shame.

But in Jesus, there is hope. The hope that He offers never disappoints, deludes, or brings upon you any shame. He gives you hope, peace, love, freedom, and joy.

When I was caught in the sin of porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation, there was a place in these sinful sexual acts that I felt hopeless. Yes, I though that I was in Christ but it was all hypocrisy. I thought that by getting off, I would feel good. That’s all that matter to me.

Getting off.

And there is a point that after I obtained that sense of sexual satisfaction (orgasm) that this is the way it’s going to be for the rest of my life. The orgasmic satisfaction was short lived when the conviction of the conscience came. However, I was able to get past the conviction of the conscience because it was remorse. Remorse only means that you were sorry about getting caught.

At the end of remorse, distance would be placed from the point of conviction to just a few moments away from it, and the cycle of urges and impulses would rise in my mind and flesh. This was evident when I would purchase porn and gratify myself several times in one night.

I would say to myself, after I repented like a revolving door, ‘Here we go again.’

Hypocrites, like I was, have found a way to suppress the conviction to fulfill and satisfy the desires of the flesh and the mind. We would find a way to hold down the Word of God and the Holy Spirit from showing us a way out of the cycle of sin and death.

In the world of sexual immorality, and in particular homosexuality, many are told to not change what you are doing. That this is who you are and that you have to accept it and let it be. Many mock and ridicule God and the Bible by saying that it’s a sham.

It’s conversion therapy.

That Christ and the Bible that you preach about really doesn’t exist. That you are controlled by religious voodoo.

And in the same breath, some of these same people want to have a gay church, be married in a church (at least some of them), and be accepted by God.

The book of James, chapter 1 and verse 8, the Lord’s half brother, James, said, “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

Hopelessness is an awareness that you feel that you can never escape because the mind is fooled into thinking that this is the way you are. You were created this way, so accept it.

Nothing could be further from the truth because God never created you to sin against Him. That’s because sin is incompatible with His holy and righteous character.

For God to create you to commit homosexuality, adultery, fornication (porn), bisexuality, STDs, including HIV/AIDS, these diseases ought to be a blessing and not a consequential disease resulting from committing such acts.

This is a depraved and absurd statement but it’s equally absurd to even assume that homosexuality or sexual immorality gets better.

If it gets better, what are the “blessings” or “benefits?”

With all sexual sins, there is no blessings and benefits.

Such is the cycle of anyone in Secret Sexual Sins, but there is Someone named Jesus, that knows what you are going through. He was tempted in all points like us, yet He didn’t sin. That means that when Jesus was resurrected from the dead, He lives forever to show every man trapped in sin how to overcome temptation. Jesus knows how to discipline urges and impulses from rising up to rule you.

Jesus knows how to deliver you from obeying the desires of the flesh and the mind.

Hopelessness is the emotional and mental feeling that you are forever trapped.

If you are trapped like I was, “hope never disappoints.”

What does the sin of homosexuality and proponents of LGBT have to offer?

“It get’s better?”

How can sin get better?

What tends to happen is that there is a suppression of conviction and a forced happiness. The peace that they seek in homosexuality is non existent. Anytime you are angry, despondent, frustrated, upset, and constantly in search for something to ease the pain, it is clear that there is no peace.

True peace is found when you look to Jesus.

“And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace…”

Many homosexuals resort to name calling, cursing, and condemning those that preach freedom in Jesus, and those that come out of the lifestyle of sin. Those that found true love in Jesus and have escaped the grips of homosexual sin have all attested to the fact that they realize that what they’ve done was sin. That the lusts in their hearts was the driving force of sexual sins. That the delusional thinking was a position that they were willing to enforce in the pursuit of peace, happiness, and love.

Each day, this pursuit brings a false notion and they arrive at a dead end.

It’s the same with all sin.

It comes to an end when we realize that in none of these things is lasting freedom. All we know is that it takes us deeper into despair, despondency, depression, and hopelessness.

In sin, it’s not going to get better. It is going to get worse. No line is uncrossable. The staircase of finding satisfaction apart from Jesus only lead down to the pit, and it keeps going down until you arrive at the basement of death.

In the ill fated search, multiple relationships as well as bisexuality are sought. More drugs and alcohol. More sex with men, more porn (male and female), and more self gratification, commonly called masturbation. Because the mind has found a way to expand it’s pleasure capacity to assume that more would either drown the depression or take our minds off of the depression.

But it doesn’t.

The pursuit of more takes us to places where depression becomes a weight too heavy to bear. The constant conviction only reminds us that we have done wrong but pride and arrogance fights against anything that has to do with Jesus. The only One Who could free us. We rebel because we desire to look only at the pleasures of sin for the moment.

Then, when all is over, we are faced with a decision. To continue to accept who we are or get help. If that isn’t enough, the depression deepens and darkens our thinking. We arrive at the point that to end life would be a relief. Because hiding who you are or if you are out of the closet, you still feel rejected, a cast away, thrown aside as someone not worthy to be human.

Death becomes a welcomed sight.

But all of this is a lie. All along, the devil was trying to kill you.

In John 10:10, Jesus said,

“The thief (satan) comes not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

In hopelessness, you felt as if someone was trying to steal, kill, and destroy you. That’s what satan, through sexual immorality, is accomplishing every time you think about it.

It’s time for you to come to Jesus. The hope that He offers never disappoints, dilutes, or shames us. The life that Jesus offers brings love, peach, comfort, joy, rest, and life everlasting.

This hope is available when you are ready to walk away from hopelessness.

Many believe that a person cannot be delivered by saying a prayer. I believe the contrary. The sinner’s prayer is a starting point where the Holy Spirit comes in and changes your life. What makes this prayer powerful is when you give up the life of sin for a life of righteousness. In sincerity, the Holy Spirit acknowledges your desire to change and comes into your heart and changes your life in an instant.

To keep the change, so to speak, means you now must commit to living for Jesus every day. This is accomplished by finding an effective Christ centered, contextual Bible teaching church.

A place where you can be taught how to practically apply the Word of God to every day living.

A place where people are living what is taught and preached.

Find a place that has a powerful ex sexual immoral support group that deals with walking in the Word in righteousness and true holiness.

The Lord is your Shepherd and He has pastors, local churches, and caring people that can help you live a holy life, one moment at a time.

Just go to the Sexual Addiction Recovery page on my blog and there is a number of sites available that will assist you in getting the help you need.

Do not give up.

Do not despair.

There is hope in Jesus.

LGBT: The Mythology Of Homophobia

There is a myth about homophobia that is dispelled by the Scriptures, the Holy Bible.

But first, phobia is defined as “an anxiety disorder characterized by extreme and irrational fear of simple things or social situations.”

In the normal understanding of phobia, it is associated with simple things such as “fear of heights, and fear of closed places or spaces called claustrophobia.”

When it comes to social situations, there is a variety of situations. People, places, or things.

Therefore, and anxiety disorder is a worry or fear characterized by extreme or irrational fear of…

So, when a person hears about a homosexual person or homosexuality, homosexuals believe that when a person is against or is prejudiced against a person that practices the sin of homosexuality, the homosexual believes that the believer in Christ’s stand against the sin is an extreme or irrational fear.

When you deal with the coined term, “homophobia,” it is pointed towards those that are “prejudiced against (fear or dislike of) homosexual people and homosexuality.”

The myth of homophobia is a paradox.

Here is the reason.

The homophobia term a demonically inspired lie that is used as an attempt to place a stereotype on believers in Christ to impose shame.

All lies come from the devil according to what Jesus said in John 8:44.

The homophobia stigma is a myth because true believers in Christ are not fearful of confronting the sin of homosexuality operating in the sons of disobedience and children of wrath.

So the winds of the LGBT agenda in legalizing homosexuality and conspiring laws to prohibit preaching against homosexuality is an attempt to put fear in the hearts of true believers in Christ that they no longer are permitted, by human law, to declare homosexuality a sin, and to stop the believers from preaching righteousness.

In other words, homosexuals and lesbians want to reverse the fear.

If such an ungodly law were to pass, many true believers will not obey it and we are ready to willfully violate that law. For we fear God rather than man. We are prepared to witness for Christ and not deny the faith.

The fall back position is to get everyone to coexist, tolerate, and teach that there is nothing to be afraid of.

While behind the scenes, the proponents of LGBT & GLEN is saying, “We are not afraid of God or the Bible because we got a law that allows us to live the way we want to live. Therefore, you are the ones that are afraid. We haven’t done anything wrong because homosexuality is not a sin. We are legitimate because we can get married. We got Civil Rights. You ought to be ashamed to call us sinners because homosexuality is about sexual orientation, not sin. You “so called believers” are the ones that have the phobia.” 

When a person, namely a believer in Christ, uses the Scriptures to point out that homosexuality is a sin, immediately, the person or persons involved in the sin of homosexuality is convicted.

To call a believer in Christ a homophobe is an attempt to reverse the effects of conviction in an attempt to get the person to back away from preaching the righteousness of God to an unrighteous person.

When you hear sympathetic persons, (carnal Christians) take up the “cause,” by saying that it isn’t right to “judge,” it’s a dead giveaway.

By default and by preponderance, they are involved in sin themselves.

How do I know?

Just name the one sin or sins you refuse to break free from.

If you are still involved in committing that one sin that easily besets you, then you are disqualified and you are in default. God is not asking for perfection.

He is commanding abstinence.

There’s a difference.

Let’s say you laid aside the sin that easily besets you, and you still say that it is not right to judge. There is a difference between being a hypocrite and calling sin a sin. The Bible says that it is a sin and we are putting our voice to what the Word of God said.

Many argue with the preacher and all the preacher is doing is putting his or her voice, and life to the Word. It makes no sense to preach something and not live it. That’s hypocrisy.

Some preaching, not all preaching is just like throwing a rock in a pack of dogs. The one that gets hit will cry.

If I preach on homosexuality, the homosexual, if any in the service will get hit. If I preach against lying, cheating, and stealing. If there is any of them in the service, they will get hit. The same goes with adulterers, fornicators (porn), bisexuals, etc.

There is no defense for sin and we have no business defending those involved in sin.

We have a responsibility to preach against sin and we have a responsibility to help those that desire to come out of sin.

Either you are for sin or you are against sin. No sense straddling, and you can’t stand on both sides of the fence at the same time. Automatically, it’s a clear indication, without a shadow of doubt, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ.

Is it possible to be misguided or perhaps, misinformed?

It is true that believers today do not know the absolutes of God’s position as declared in His Word. Such ignorance, however, is no longer feasible because in America, access to correct, solid, contextual Bible teaching is inescapable and a believer’s position according to the parable of the sower reveals the true character of the heart (see Luke 8:11-15).

And because of this ignorance, it is considered by LGBT and GLEN of believers in Christ as being fearful and spineless believers in Christ. And the devil, through LGBT and GLEN is taking full advantage.

Two Scriptures come to mind when it comes to carnal believers attempting to ignore the absolutes of God’s Word or evading correct, contextual Biblical teaching.

Numbers 14:21 and Habakkuk 2:14.

“But truly, as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord…”

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”

You can’t be sympathetic to sin that God hates.

Otherwise, there would be no need for Jesus to die.

Spiritually speaking, when the Word of God is preached, its called the fear of God. The Biblical fear of God is clear from Genesis to Revelation. The Biblical word “fear” speaks of the reverence or respect of God. So the homosexual, or any one caught in any sin, when they hear the Word of God, either a person in sin will suppress his or her fear that God said it is sin or attempt to turn the table on what was preached in righteousness.

How could the table be turned?

By declaring righteousness as wrong, hence, declaring God is wrong.

That’s what the term homophobia is all about.

With our parents, when they tell us to do a certain thing, in obedience and also in reverence and respect, we do what we are told. We all know that there is a consequence when we fail to do what we are told by our parents. It is the same with respecting laws. It is the same with respecting the Lord.

In order for the myth of “homophobia” to work, homosexuality must be accepted as a normal part of a person’s lifestyle, accepted by society, and deemed as a sexual orientation, not a sin.

The key is to take the sting of the word “sin” out.

If the word sin is removed, then we can live with living wrong as right living.

We could just get along. Right?

It’s like telling a robber that it’s ok to rob an old lady because robbing an old lady is no longer a sin.

As a side note, to orient means, to “familiarize (someone) with new surroundings or circumstances.”

For instance, in order for civilians to become soldiers, sailors, airmen, or marines, the place they go to is called “Boot Camp.” It is there that civilians initially orient themselves to become a part of the military.

So when you talk about sexual orientation, they are taking that which once was “straight” and familiarizing someone with new surroundings or circumstances. In other words, because of delving into a sexual preference, they engage in Biblically prohibitive sexual activity.

Also known as sexual immorality.

The Bible (Leviticus 18:22, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, and Romans chapter 1) is the unavoidable, inevitable obstacle that the spirit of homosexuality and lesbianism cannot overcome and evade because God prohibits the sin; just as the Bible is prohibitive about adultery, fornication (porn), incest, rape, child molestation, bisexuality, and bestiality.

By the way, the way that LGBT and GLEN is attempting to discredit the Scripture references above is by gathering false Bible scholars to declare the Biblical prohibitions as ancient, out of date, misinterpreted, and no longer a part of Scripture. That Paul and the preachers of today do not know what they are talking about. Also by saying that the Lord Jesus never said anything about homosexuality (read Matthew 19:4-5, He said enough there).

These false scholars act is if they were there at the beginning and were there to compile canon Scripture in the late 1500’s.

You do not need a Bible scholar whether true or false to tell you that homosexuality is sin.

Since the Bible is clear in prohibiting the sinful practice of homosexuality and lesbianism, there must be a way for practicing homosexuals to discredit God, the Bible, discredit anyone preaching the Bible, discredit anyone delivered from the sin of homosexuality, discredit anything that speaks against homosexuals and homosexuality.

Right?

The way homosexuals and lesbians are attempting to discredit God and the Bible is to bring questions about the absolutes of God’s Word. Just like what satan did to Eve in the beginning. Make God out to be the Bad Guy or make it appear that true believers do not know what we are talking about. That we are incompetent, ignorant, and behind the times.

Such intimidation is designed to silence the true believers.

The true believers can’t help but speak the truth in love as opposed to cower in silence for fear being penalized by humans with immoral laws.

The other ways is to give the appearance that believers in Christ are fearful of homosexuals and homosexuality, pass legislation, and make immorality moral, invade the true church of Jesus Christ with perverseness, and, finally, establish their own temples, churches and other organizations where their brand of religiosity is acceptable and inclusive of homosexual sin.

Appearance is everything.

Then there is a wide variety of means and methods to forward the legislative process of legitimizing sin.

Pass legislation prohibiting hate speech to include preaching the Bible. Pass legislation to strike down certain State Constitutions that prohibit homosexuality. Pass legislation to strike down marriage between one man and one woman and include same sex unions. Judicial activism. Force pastors and churches to allow the use of exclusive sacred places to be used by homosexuals and lesbians.

Our response as believers is clear.

In 2 Timothy 1:7, Paul told Timothy,

“God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

The Greek word translate “fear” is the word, “phobos.”

Listen to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words…

“flight,” that which is caused by being scared; then, “that which may cause flight.”

Notice the opposite definition….

“(b) reverential fear,” (1) of God, as a controlling motive of the life, in matters of spiritual and moral, not a mere “fear” of His power and righteous retribution, but a wholesome dread of displeasing Him, a “fear” which banishes the terror that shrinks from His presence, (Romans 8:15), and which influences the disposition and attitude of one whose circumstances are guided by trust in God, through the indwelling Spirit of God…” 

So the true believer doesn’t run in terror from homosexuals and the sin of homosexuality. We run towards you to tell the homosexuals, adulterers, lesbians, bisexuals, fornicators (porn), and those caught in any sexual immorality that they can be free in Jesus.

LGBT Insurgency Christians & Churches: Only A Look

Several decades ago, the late James Cleveland, a practicing homosexual, sang a song called “Only A Look.” Years ago, as a young child, my late mother would play his albums or listen to his songs on WWRL in New York every Sunday Morning.

Part of the refrain of that song was, “Just one look, would turn you away from sin.”

Sadly, this powerful song never rang true in his heart. Some would dare to say that I shouldn’t judge a dead man. The way the Bible teaches is that either we are dead in trespasses and sins or we are dead to sin but alive unto God (see Romans chapter 6).

The Bible is clear about hypocrisy.

Living a hypocritical life while claiming to be walking in the light of the gospel is the worst kind of hypocrisy. Such was my life until I repented and left the sin of porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation behind me forever.

LGBT false pastors and pretend churches that are popping up all over the place serve as a reminder that if you are going to talk about God, the Bible, and church, you cannot claim to be looking at the Savior and be involved in the sin the Savior came to save us from.

You cannot claim to know Him, sing to Him, lift your hands to Him (lifting up unholy hands with wrath and doubting) and kiss and have man to man, woman to woman sex. Let alone fornicate (porn), adultery, or be bisexual.

If you were to take a real look at Jesus like Thomas did, it wasn’t just the remarkable, undeniable fact that He was resurrected from the dead but the scars on His body is emblematic of the price He paid to redeem us from sin.

Just one look at each nail scared hand.

Just one look at each nail scared foot.

Just one look at the hole in His side.

Just one look at the blood trail of Jesus from Pilate’s pretorium to Golgotha’s hill.

To ignore looking at Jesus as He is, only underscores how intentionally blind people are to what He went through to save us from sin. We look at a clean Jesus before He died and we freeze frame Him there. But there is a bloody side of Jesus. A side that speaks volumes of what He went through to die for our sins.

Remember what John the Baptist said before Jesus was baptized in the river Jordan….

“Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”

Hebrews 12:1-2 says,

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

The “let us” are the believers that became truly born again, having given up the life of sin, but fell into temptation and yielded to sin.

There is a difference between being an apostate and a carnal Christian.

An apostate (see Hebrews 6:4-8) is one that despised their salvation, has walked away from Jesus, and cast aside His salvation forever to return to the house of bondage forever. The person no longer claims Jesus as Lord. Apostates fit the profile of Esau. Esau gave up his birthright to Jacob and Esau lost the inheritance or blessing.

Incidentally, Esau was a fornicator and profane in his living (see Hebrews 12:16-17).

In other words, he was sexually immoral.

Fresh from the Holy Spirit.

If you are an apostate, you are no longer hypocritical. That’s because when you left Christ for good, you are doomed.

If you claim to be a believer in Jesus, but you were never born again, you are a sinner that has yet to be saved. You are neither a hypocrite or a believer. You are an impostor, pretender, or fictitious representative (hence, gay christians and gay churches). Make believe child of God fits the bill. It has hints of hypocrisy but the difference is that you know what a real child of God is but because of a love for sin, you refrain from becoming a genuine child of God, and you know what a real sinner is.

If you are a true believer in Christ but you constantly yield to temptation to sin, you are a hypocrite when you say you have no sin, but you commit sin, hence….

a carnal Christian is one that yields to temptation and fall into sin while attempting to practice righteousness simultaneously (see Luke 811-15 and Romans 8:1-17). You can’t be both and you can’t practice both at the same time. Your mind must be made up. This is the prodigal son attitude. Prodigal meaning wasteful. Eventually, the prodigal son returned and his father welcomed him with open arms and a kiss.

The insurgency of LGBT into the church is to attempt to legitimize lesbian, gay/homosexual, bisexual, transgender sin.

As long as the true church of the Lord Jesus Christ is here, we might as well preach and live the truth. It is not enough that we preach against it, and live against it. The hand is always out to reach into the flame and pull as many out as possible before it’s too late.

For the flame that many will be cast into, no man will be able to reach into it.

I am aware that many worry about offending those in the sin of homosexuality. Worried about offending people by declaring homosexual sins as an abomination. What the Lord is doing is that by His Word, He is letting us know how He detests the fact that what He created has turned to perverseness.

If we do not understand what God thinks about sin, any sin, then in our unregenerate minds, we believe that the Lord is fine with sin. And that’s the LGBT agenda, which is actually satan’s agenda.

God was never fine or “ok” about sin.

So while we preach the Word, we must use the same position of God. God detests sin. God hates sin. God does not like sin. God declares sin as an abomination. So to come out from being against God, we need to be born again.

How?

Only a look. Just one real look at the real Savior, will turn you away from sin.

LGBT: The Occult & Wicca Witchcraft

As I was driving along, the Lord begin to minister something to me that I never would have thought of if I tried. When you are dealing with some form of sexual immorality, there is definite connections to idolatry. It’s a no brainer to know that when you are dealing with the dark side, the devil and his angels are there.

The OT is clear about idol worship. The Canaanite high places used for deity worship invariably had connections to sexual immorality. Male and female prostitutes were available all the time. On most sites, jars of babies killed as a ritual, lined the area. It’s quite possible that these babies were “out of womb” abortions resulting from pregnancies of female temple prostitutes.

In Acts chapter 15, “certain men came down from Judea and taught the brethren, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.”

The church at Antioch sent Paul and Barnabas down to Jerusalem to get the ruling on such doctrine. The council discussed and approved a letter that stated that they abstain from “things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality.”

There is no doubt about the connections of pagan rituals and sexual immorality.

When you are dealing with the occult, there is always a connection to witchcraft.

In the adjective, “occult” means, hidden and difficult to see,” hence mystery, mystic, secret.

According to Wikipedia, Dianic Wicca” and other sections of witches had lesbians incorporated into their circles.

“Dianic Wicca is a religion that welcomes lesbian pagans and celebrates their perspectives on feminism, sexism, and women’s empowerment within patriarchal culture. However, many Dianic covens exclude transgender people, being solely for womyn-born-womyn.”

In support of this philosophy, many Wiccans cite the Charge of the Goddess, which says “All acts of Love and Pleasure are My rituals”.Therefore all forms and expressions of sexuality, as long as they are otherwise healthy and consensual, are accepted.

According to Ann-Marie Gallagher, a professor of women’s studies and long-time author of many books related to Wicca, “there is no moralistic doctrine or dogma other than the advice offered in the Wiccan Rede… The only ‘law’ here is love… It matters not whether we are gay, straight, bisexual or transgendered – the physical world is sacred, and [we are] celebrating our physicality, sexuality, human nature and celebrating the goddess, Giver of ALL life and soul of ALL nature.”

In addition, since Wicca focuses on the importance of male-female polarities, its acceptance of homosexuals is focused on the view that homosexual individuals embody (spiritually) aspects of both polarities. A view similar to that of the Native American tradition of Two-Spirited individuals.”

As soon as I saw the word “Dianic,” it is a direct connection to Acts 19. Diana of the Ephesians. The revival that Paul and the other apostles conducted in Ephesus (modern day Turkey) literally wiped out Diana of the Ephesians. At that time, the city of Ephesus had a population of over 300,000 persons. The income of the coppersmiths were incredible. They were in business to make the statue of Diana and replicate it so that everyone could have a copy.

This is no different than the porn industry. Diana of the Ephesians was one of the Seven Wonders of the World. And to come to the place where this wonder could be obtained reveals a long trail of money, sex, and sorcery, witchcraft, and idol worship.

But as with all idols, there is always a long connection of idolatry that leads all the way to satan.

For instance, the Artemis is connected to Diana of the Ephesians.

According to New Unger’s Bible Dictionary,

“”Artemis of the Ephesians” (not a Greek deity, but Asiatic)’…was undoubtedly a representative of the same power presiding over conception and birth that was adored in Palestine under the name Ashtoreth.

The Ashtoreth was a god identified with the planet Venus and related with the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, the goddess of ‘sensual love, maternity, and fertility.’

However, according to the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, “In the West, however, Asherah and Ashtoreth came to be distinguished from one another, Asherah being exclusively the goddess of fertility, whereas Ashtoreth passed into a moon-goddess.”

The Ashtoreth was made of wood and in some cases made into a pole. While it is a stretch, I wouldn’t be surprised if they had pole dancers back then.

If that isn’t enough, the Asherah was “a cult object of wood, which might be worshipped or cut down and burned and which was certainly the goddess image.” Some scholars noted that the term “detestable” would be used to describe the idol. Also, some scholars have even used the term “phallic.”

In case you do not know what phallic” is.

It is an erect penis.

In other words, the idolatry was about sexual perversion worship to false gods and one of many objects of worship might have been an erect penis.

Notice 2 Kings 23:4-7,

“And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, the priests of the second order, and the doorkeepers, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the articles that were made for Baal, for Asherah, and for all the host of heaven; and he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. Then he removed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense on the high places in the cities of Judah and in the places all around Jerusalem, and those who burned incense to Baal, to the sun, to the moon, to the constellations, and to all the host of heaven. And he brought out the wooden image from the house of the Lord, to the Brook Kidron outside Jerusalem, burned it at the Brook Kidron and ground it to ashes, and threw its ashes on the graves of the common people. Then he tore down the ritual booths of the perverted persons that were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the wooden image.”

There is little imagination to the possibility of what kind of sex toys” were employed.

So the connections to abortion, idol worship, sexual symbols, and the occult or witchcraft is there.

Back in the book of Acts chapter 19, the other thing that was interesting was that one day, the people that turned their lives over to the Lord came out and burned their books of sorcery. The book in themselves wasn’t the value. It was what was in the books that contained the value. The ability to use supernatural demonic power over people.

We all know that the LGBT community is a small community or minority of people, however, they have vast resources that reaches all the way into the White House, but that is not the real pinnacle of power. The House and the Senate, and the Judicial Branches are the real houses of power in the natural.

On almost every level of government. City, State, and Federal, their reach is incredible. And that’s where the battle ground has shifted. From the Federal level to city and state levels. In fact, then Vice President Dick Chaney signaled to LGBT that if you want these rights, go to the states and we are seeing a full court press of the LGBT agenda pushing states to incorporate homosexuality.

The new target, which is an old target is the church. For years, they have infiltrated church music without much opposition. They have now been accepted and ordained in most churches where there’s been a relinquishing of Biblical holiness on an unimaginable scale.

Slowly, we are seeing some segments of church wane or entirely avoid the fight of battle. Former homosexuals and lesbians are also targeted by LGBT as conversion therapy Christians. The new birth is not a system of therapy. The new birth is accepting the life of Jesus and throwing away the life of sin by the grace of God.

The tactics of LGBT is almost to the point that the church feels vexed and tormented like Lot but this is not the time for the church to capitulate because of the anger of the devil in the voices of those that stand hard against God and His Word. This is the time to pray like never before and stand firm in the faith. We are not to fear their faces because our God is a Mighty God.

The only impediment left is the true Word of God and the Person of the Holy Spirit, operating within the believers in the true church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

They know that they cannot silence the church because God is always raising up someone to speak truth. However, when LGBT cannot have their way, they resort to intimidating witchcraft and manipulative tactics.

Not all lesbians are deep into Dianic Wicca Witchcraft but their voices and tactics have the spirit of witchcraft in almost everything that they do because of it’s demonic connections to sexual immorality and idolatry. You do not have to have a statue to bow down to because the hour we are in now has revealed the sinner’s true idol.

Him or herself in anarchy and rebellion against the will of God.

Of course there will be strong denial of these connections but rebellion is the heart of all sin.

I remember so vividly when I was caught in the sin of porn and self gratification how I was. After you come out of the dark and begin to see what you were involved with, you can see that you were in rebellion.

In 1 Samuel 15:22b-23, look at what Samuel said of Saul,

“Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.”

When the gospel of inclusion came out, it was because the church made a stand in righteousness to exclude sin. God is exclusive. To be holy is to be exclusive. To be included into the kingdom of the Son of His love, you must have sin washed away by the blood of the Lamb.

A spell is cast every time sin is committed because rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.

It is only by being delivered from the power of darkness by the forgiveness of sins and a thorough washing of the blood of the Lamb that a persons is transformed and conveyed into the kingdom of the Son of His love. As many as received Him to them He gives power or the right to become a son of God.

These verses are a combination of Colossians 1:13 and John 1:12.

You cannot become a son of God without being born again.

There is no such thing as backdoor Christianity where you attempt to come in without a “wedding garment” (see Matthew 22:1-14).

We know that this is an apostate age and many will turn from the Lord. Already there is a clear infiltration and deep insurgency within the ranks of the righteous. However, remember that the Lord said “….and the gates of hell shall not prevail…”

The gates, according to Vine’s Expository of Biblical Words states that the gates of hell is representative of demonic government. satan’s government shall not prevail.

When you are in Secret Sexual Sins, you are in rebellion. And it is no different than the sin of witchcraft. My stubbornness. It was no different than iniquity and idolatry.

The word “witchcraft” is the Hebrew word, “qecem” which means divination. This word is associated with Balaam. We all know what happened to the children of Israel when they were in the plains of MOAB.

So, when you go to church, if there is no true conviction of sin, there is no doubt about Secret Sexual Sins. When you go to your “church concerts” and “album recordings” and you begin to see certain things that stand out as out of the holy ordinary of the presence of God, there is a greater chance that immorality is comfortable in the facility.

The church should never mind sinners coming into a worship service but it should be very uncomfortable for sin to find a home. Our worship services should never be as comfortable as a roach surviving a roach bomb. Where there is no conviction for sin, it is a good indication that the Holy Spirit may not be at home in the facility that houses the church.

Conviction is not for the purpose of chasing sinners out of the house of God. Conviction serves as a notice that in the place where the church stands is holy ground. The convicting power of God is not for the purpose of chasing the sinner out but to pull that person to the blood of His cross where sins are forgiven and where resurrection to new life in Christ is issued. The place of conviction must be where the love of God is administered in truth and where, as a result of such conviction, a person is sorry for hurting God.

They repent, receive the life changing power of the Holy Spirit, and walk in new freedom in Christ. From the house of bondage to the kingdom of the Son of His love.

When it comes to self gratification, I was idolizing sex.

In all actuality, whatever your preference may be to get off, it all boils down to sexual immorality which is rebellion and iniquity which is witchcraft and idolatry.

The two terms are interchangeable.

For those of us that received deliverance, when we are attacked by those still in the house of bondage, when they spew their venom, you get that sense that something demonic took place. That demonic occurrence is the occult or witchcraft spell that is being cast against the children of righteousness but…

“No weapon formed against us shall prosper and whatever tongue that rises against us in judgment, we shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of Me, says the Lord.”

LGBT: The May 8th North Carolina Vote – Sexual Discrimination?

As you all know, North Carolina, on May 8, will be voting regarding the determination that marriage is between one male and one female. Elder Raymond King of Securing Hope Ministries emailed a link to me regarding this vote. I will add that there is a broad campaign to misinform the Body of Christ in NC.

GMCWatch also endorsed the stand for NC to vote for the fact that marriage is between one male and one female.

It is stressed again that homosexuality is sin. Sin is the foundation as to why gay marriage is wrong and ultimately against the will of God.

This must be looked upon as a full court press attempt by LGBT and other gay organizations to manifest sin in the United States and around the world.

It is a clear and present danger of epic proportions. And yes, it is a global threat.

There is also a broad campaign to silence African Americans that happened to know the truth about the issue so that LGBT agendas can flourish without objection.

However, when the will of God is before the people, it is important to stress that regardless of the devil’s terror, misinformation, and intimidation tactics, the people of God must stand.

“And having done all to stand, stand therefore….”

In the churches, African American pastors in particular, are picking up the pace in informing the congregations of the importance of voting.

The president weighed in and said that the amendment is “discriminatory.”

He has a right to disagree but we all know that according to the Word of God, the president is wrong.

Proverbs 14:34 says, “Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach (wicked thing, or shame) to any people.”

Based on this Word from God, Mr. President, your “discriminatory” comment is dead wrong on arrival.

In my opinion, as an African American, he should know better.

Better yet, the president, as a professed Christian, which is very suspect and highly questionable, the president still should know better. You can’t be a child of God and be against God and His Word at the same time. You cannot be for sin and against God at the same time.

Believers of Jesus Christ should have known better after then Senator Barack Obama made unambiguous speeches to keep Planned Parenthood (Abortionhood) around and to champion homosexual and lesbian issues on an unprecedented scale.

It should have been a clear signal that sin was to be further entrenched. As you all should know, sexual immorality is at the root of abortions and homosexuality, and lesbianism.

African Americans that voted for the president, you should have known better.

You must be for God and against all sin at all times.

Disagree, cry, fuss.

But sin is sin, and righteousness is righteousness. Right is right and wrong is wrong. But light is light and darkness is darkness. You will never find God and the devil sitting on the same throne at the same time, or playing musical chairs. God remains King of kings and Lord of lords. God remains in the heaven and devil is destined for hell.

What is also heartening is there is a growing trend that the regular voting along Democratic lines in the past is starting to dissipate. In the past, it was a regular thing for Blacks to vote against the Word of God in issues that matter the most.

As a result, we’ve been voting for our own demise.

The time has come where we look to the Word of God and determine that the way we vote must be consistent with what God said in His Word. Regardless of the intimidation tactics. It appears that for so long, African Americans, having now the right to vote, have basically been told, to shut up and vote without looking deeper into how such voting would drastically affect African Americans in the future.

The time is now for the true believers in Christ in NC to vote in such a way that the will of God is honored. The end of traditionally voting to appease Blacks in the democratic offices has now come to a close. There is a way for African Americans to vote and remain the watch dog over true Civil Rights without allowing outside influences such as LGBT and other gay organizations to further entrench themselves deceptively behind the true cause of freedom for Blacks in America while keeping us seated at the back of the bus.

Please do not misunderstand me. We are not supposed to remain at the back of the bus.

I will add that it doesn’t mean voting Republican or Independent either. Any candidate that is not consistent with the Word of God should not get a vote. Some dare to say that if you do not vote, then the opposition wins. But what about when a candidate blatantly agrees with all sin.

I believe that the Spirit of God will inform you as to what you are to do but do not be found voting in agreement with sin. What if a candidate is “close enough?” Again, ask the Holy Spirit and He will guide you as to what you are to do. Remember, the Holy Spirit will never lead a child of God away from the will of God (see Romans 8:26-27).

The “down the road” ramifications may be too much for us to bear.

The blatant hijacking of Civil Rights must be aggressively stood against by the Word of God.

And it’s not about pulling up the past and conjuring the voices of the past.

African Americans, your ancestors have stood their watch. We must stand the watch in our time, but this time, with the will of God in mind. You can’t go wrong when you please God because God is pleased to come and walk with us who are undefiled according to Psalm 119:1-8.

It’s not about what we think. It is about what God said and agreeing with what God said that is very unpopular. But this is not a popularity contest.

No people, no nation has ever gone wrong trusting in the Lord.

The conviction must be based on the truth of the Word of God. Not based on what you feel. Because when God issues a command, He didn’t ask any of us how we felt about it.

We are told to obey.

We must live according to the convictions of the Scriptures and be found remaining true to the One who died for us, for our sins, and truly set us free.

I’m not a North Carolinian, but I am a born again believer in Christ and I am an African American. I stand with my brothers and sisters in Christ in prayer that God’s Word will prevail mightily and that the will of God be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Please read the excerpts blow and be encouraged.

“The amendment would not change the law – same-sex marriage is already not legal in this state,” the Rev. Sheldon Shipman said he told the 800 members of Greenville Memorial A.M.E Zion Church last week. “So it becomes a civil rights issue, sanctioning discrimination and making it part of the constitution.”

Yet, most of the state’s African-Americans appear ready to rely on the Bible as their voting guide. They cite Genesis and the Gospels as defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman, and quote from Leviticus in the Old Testament and Paul in the New, which call same-gender sex abominable, perverse and shameful.

As such, the marriage amendment has hammered a wedge between two enduring traits of African-American believers – a tradition of political and social activism, and a streak of moral conservatism, especially when it comes to gays and lesbians.

“That’s the quandary: They can’t see that they will be voting against someone’s ability to live their own life,” says Tracy Godfrey of Charlotte, a gay black man raised in a conservative Baptist church who joined Caldwell Memorial Presbyterian a year ago.

“… On a faith level, they will vote against the very thing they’ve been taught in church, ‘that whatever you did to the least of these, you did for me.’ ”

Amendment opponents call the referendum a waste of time and money, given the existing state law against same-sex marriage. They say the wording threatens the legal status and benefits of all unmarried couples, including heterosexuals, and writes discrimination into the constitution.

Based on his sermon, Davis buys none of it. “You’ve heard the talk. As African-Americans, we ought to know that this is discrimination. Discrimination? Black people have been discriminated against because of the color of our skin, not by our behavior or a choice of lifestyle.”

“I was born like this!” Davis shouted while he pointed at his bare hand, “amen ” and “preach-it” rising up from the congregation. “I need you to understand that you and I must stand for what God says!”

LGBT & Gay Christians: Why Inclusion Is Important To Gays

When the traditional churches searched for ways to renounce the Biblical stand against homosexuality, it was an opportunity for homosexuals to openly practice sin while attending and participating in church.

There is a reason which we will explore in a moment.

The stigmatization of being a homosexual and the shame of this sin appeared to have lifted. Many people in the church view homosexuality as a sexual orientation, and not a sin. It is to be understood that for years, homosexuals had to keep quite about their sin.

Hence, the term, the closet.”

Make no mistake about it, homosexuality according to the Bible is sin. Just like cheating on your wife is a sin. Just like lying is a sin. Just like fornication is a sin. To exempt or exclude homosexuality and lesbianism is just slight of hand.

Then why is inclusion so important to gays?

For years, the church failed to address this issue in line with the Bible because a wide range of issues were already before the church and pastors.

Issues such as, heterosexuals shacking up outside of marriage. This is a polite term for two persons living together in fornication. A more colorful term would be “playing house.”

Issues such as….male pastors engaged in homosexuality, bisexuality, “sleeping with Sister Susie Q and Brother man at the same time.”

A wide range of promiscuous predator pastors would sexually take advantage of women, regardless of a woman’s emotional state. Because he had a lustful eye and heart, it was just another day at the office.  Thousands of women’s lives would be destroyed because a pastor couldn’t remain faithful to his wife because he was a wanderer.

According to the powerful book, Betrayal Of Trust, pastors would fit the profile of either a predator or a wanderer.

On the other hand, according to Proverbs chapter 7, a wide range of immoral women would come to church just to “test” the waters to see if a pastor would take them on. These immoral women would wreck homes. End up pregnant and either have the love child” to force the pastor to walk away from his wife, or have an abortion, and walk away in shame and disgrace.

Some might never darken the doorstep of a church again.

Music ministers would fornicate or engage in homosexuality, or bisexuality. With regularity, women in the church choir would be their victims or young boys would be molested. Music ministers would also be involved with porn and self gratification.

These uncontested issues left the church in a precarious situation.

The precarious situation is the fact that if the church is in sin, the all sin is permitted. If sin is already in the church, then the sin of homosexuality is permitted too. Therefore, I am allowed to sit at the table.

Inclusion without confrontation seemed like the best compromise.

What this means is that “everybody is saved. Come right on in.”

No need to renounce sin. No need to confront sin. No need to repent. No need to say the sinner’s prayer because we are not sinners anymore. Everyone is a brother and everyone is a sister. And if you want to be bisexual or if you are transgender through surgical and hormonal procedures, it’s alright. All are welcome because we are all God’s children.

In a nut shell, because Jesus died for everyone, no one has a right to exclude anyone because Jesus loved us all. You are automatically recognized as a believer. You believe in Jesus, right?

Well, come right in. You are a brother and sister in Christ.

As a side note about sister lesbians…

According to P4CM (Passion For Christ Ministries), in an interview, a former lesbian revealed the rules of lesbianism. Both women cannot be women. One has to play the male role.

The male role is called a “beard.”

Short haircut and male clothes, with strong male cologne, Or feminine cologne that has a strong masculine scent. In most union ceremonies, both cannot come in wearing a wedding dress.

I’m not trying to be funny. I’m just stating facts.

My good friend, Elder Raymond King of Securing Hope Ministry has a picture of two black men posing for their wedding picture. One is dressed in a regular tuxedo. The other homosexual who was much shorter, was in a semi tuxedo with a train like on a wedding gown.

Inclusion is important because there is no stigmatization, no sin, no shame, no remorse for two reasons…..

1. Remove harmful language including what the Bible says.

Inclusion is permitted because the “harmful language” of the Bible no longer exists. And because you are included, there is no reason for a loving God to send you to hell. You are not condemned. You are all God’s children. You are completely forgiven.

This is a lie.

When something is not declared a sin, there is no need to be forgiven for anything. It’s only when sin is pronounced that there is a need to ask for forgiveness. But because homosexuals are included, there is no need to be forgiven. Why? Because homosexuality is not a sin.

There is a major problem with this….

The God of the Bible never changed up.

And when a person is told that they are wrong based on the established Word of God, just because you disagree with the Word of God, it doesn’t mean certain passages of the Scripture automatically disappear or are rendered null and void.

2. All mankind are brothers and sisters in Christ because God loved us.

God demonstrated His love in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. To be a brother or sister in Christ, you must renounce the very thing that Jesus died for. The problem with inclusion without true renunciation and true repentance is that all they want is Jesus’ love. Just leave what I do in the bedroom, or in whatever room, off the table.

It’s none of anyone’s business. Including God.

Sadly mistaken.

The business of forgiving our sins begins at the cross of Christ. It ends on a sinner’s bended knees to the Lordship of Jesus, in total submission to the will of God to relinquish the life of sin.

This love is always there for all people, however, Jesus just didn’t come to spread His love and we just leave it at that. Jesus came to die for our sins and God raised Jesus from the dead so that we can have eternal life. Eternal life is not just about living eternally or living forever. It is about living as God created us to live eternally. Living like God is living according to His characteristics.

God is holy. So incorporating His consistent characteristic, which is done by accepting Jesus as Lord, and adhering to His living Word, allows a person to live eternally.

The only way to get into the kingdom is by being born again.

Two things happened at the death of Jesus.

First, sin was placed on Jesus and God condemned sin in the flesh of Jesus.

Second, the ordinance of death that condemned every man was removed, however, man must agree to the terms of redemption and be reconciled to God.

In condemning sin in the flesh of Jesus, the power to hold man to commit sin and the guilt (the awareness that you are guilty) of sin was removed. This is called justification. God knowing that you deserve death, released you from the penalty because Jesus took your place. However, you must relinquish the will to continue in sin.

You cannot agree to commit the very thing He sent His Son to release you from. It doesn’t make sense to tell you that you are free to go after you’ve murdered somebody just to go out and continue to murder.

The new birth gives us the power to rule over our lives never to commit sin, the very thing that Jesus came to set us free from.

Inclusion is just another crafty word that gives you permission to call yourself a believer without conforming your life to the Lord Jesus Christ according to the Word of God. A true believer lives a changed, transformed life without needing to sin ever again.

Inclusion allows for sin to be committed without being transformed into the Person of Jesus Christ. In other words, one is permitted to live any way they want to live.

Because the church lived in some measure of “inclusion” by living in adultery, fornication (porn), self gratification, bisexuality, lesbianism, homosexuality, and bestiality found it’s way at the table.

The removal of all shame and stigmatization is only found in Jesus. It’s found in renouncing all sin.

The closet is a dark place when the door is closed and no one sees inside. No one except the One who died for you to set you free. The guilt and shame of sin is what keeps many in the closet. However, we understand that even when you attend homosexual churches, you do feel some sort of freedom, but not the kind of freedom that you would fully experience when you come out of sin.

In many of you, you suppress the depression.

The desire to be accepted and loved by God is intense. The desire to do what you do while God accepts you is what all LGBT people want because they cannot separate the fact that sin is against the will of God. There would be no point for Jesus to die for sin if we are permitted to continue to sin.

But anarchy and to live in open rebellion against the God of heaven cannot, and will not happen. Just imagine heaven filled with sin all around the throne of God. The objective is not to push homosexual back into the closet. The objective is to show them that there is freedom in Christ from sin.

The noise of hatred must never drown out the true love of God. The noise of hatred must never drown out the truth of God. The noise of hatred must never cause you to shrink away from the love of God that is extended to every person.

Never let the pain of hatred that you have suffered from misguided people be the motivation to hate God and His Word. Sadly, reverse hatred because of a love for sin has being released to pervert the Scriptures. Reverse hatred has been the rallying call to label everything, including the Bible, as hate language.

To remove certain passages of Scripture, to attempt to rearrange the original context of the Scriptures, or changing the Scriptures to fit our life of sin cannot happen because Someone (God) is right, and all men is wrong.

God never asked you to like truth. God commands men everywhere to repent.

No one likes to repent and turn away from something that may be pleasurable, but when it comes to getting into the kingdom of God on God’s term, repentance is the least I could do. And if you choose not to repent, there must be a separation because sin cannot be allowed in God’s kingdom. God relentlessly hates sin and that’s His position.

The moment you accept the fact that the Word is right is the moment that true peace in Jesus comes.

Sexual Immorality: Discrediting The Integrity Of The Church

When Job went through his trials, he had three friends. His friends had a lot of wisdom but some of what they were sharing was misdirected. Too often, the sermons we preach to people may or may not be preached to the right people that need to hear it.

Every now and then, we do come across some truth that is evident in one of Job’s friend named Eliphaz. It seems that he had a lot of knowledge but no real wisdom and discernment to direct such knowledge to the right person.

Have you ever had a mail person constantly deliver the same piece of mail to your mailbox and it wasn’t addressed to you?

It’s not that the mail person is not competent. It could have been a force of habit. When you see a name that is similar or there is sometimes a mental lock, sometimes mail or anything will be incorrectly delivered until something supernatural happens.

You ask a question or series of questions to make sure that what you are delivering is to the right person. As a note, if a message is not resonating and witnessed by the people, by the Spirit of God, sometimes it is good to stop and reassess the situation.

Eliphaz didn’t have this kind of discernment.

The whole gist of the book of Job is about the troubles of a man that was caused by the devil. The friends of Job, Eliphaz, the Temanite, Bildad, the Shuhite, and Zophar, the Naamathite all came together to mourn and comfort Job (see Job 2:11).

They didn’t recognize him and began to cry aloud, rip their clothes, and throw dust on their heads. For seven days, they didn’t talk to Job because they observed that Job’s suffering was “very great.”

After seven days, Job’s three friends begin to pour it on him. They all thought that Job committed sin and was being judged.

Far from the truth.

Chapters 1 and 2 reveal that the devil receive permission from the Lord to try Job.

Job didn’t know that it was the devil that brought calamity, and while it is true that he didn’t blame God, Job ascribed the trouble and trials as an “act of God.”

Job didn’t know that his integrity is what the devil wanted to discredit.

The devil cares less about your car, house, children, money, and other items. He wants your spirit, soul, and body to hate God. The devil wanted to get Job to curse God for taking all these things away, including his health.

God blessed Job and the devil said that if you would take it away from him, he would curse God. satan wanted to get at Job and he couldn’t because the Lord protected him with a hedge. It was only until the hedge of protection was lifted that satan had his opportunity.

So there is a principle.

As long as you treat God right, the protection of the Lord is upon you. As long as you do what God said to do in His Word and maintain your integrity, the devil will also look for a way to discredit your faith in God. And if or when these things are somehow taken or destroyed, because you love God more than the elements He blessed you with, you maintain your integrity.

You keep praising God.

The efficacy of the integrity of Job is what this story is about.

In many places in the United States, such an attitude is prevalent. In other places, it’s business as usual. The people of the church has yet to discern that the integrity of their faith is being tried. At the same time, people do not realize that sexual immorality plays a significant roll.

If the church is compromised because of Secret Sexual Sins, by default, our testimony is discredited.

Job had no Bible. No Jesus. No “authority.” No blood of Jesus. And with his three “friends,” no intercessors. Yet, he knew how to walk in sexual integrity. He didn’t open the door of calamity upon his life because he lost sexual integrity.

It was because of Job’s end to end commendable integrity that the devil sought the Lord to lift up all protections. And should the devil had been able to kill him, the devil would have done so when he saw that Job would not curse God.

Job 31:1-12 says,

“I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a girl. For what is the allotment of God from above, and the inheritance of the Almighty from on high? Is it not destruction for the wicked, and disaster for the workers of iniquity? Does He not see my ways, and count all my steps? “If I have walked with falsehood, or if my foot has hastened to deceit, let me be weighed on honest scales, that God may know my integrity. If my step has turned from the way, or my heart walked after my eyes, or if any spot adheres to my hands, then let me sow, and another eat; yes, let my harvest be rooted out. “If my heart has been enticed by a woman, or if I have lurked at my neighbor’s door, then let my wife grind for another, and let others bow down over her. For that would be wickedness; yes, it would be iniquity deserving of judgment. For that would be a fire that consumes to destruction, and would root out all my increase.

That’s what sexual immorality will do.

Be like a fire that consumes to destruction, and would root out all your increase. Everything would be destroyed.

The church must regain this measure of integrity across the board.

The reason why the world doesn’t believe us is because we do not believe in personal integrity according to the Scriptures. That’s why LGBT and all other groups question the church because we lack integrity. However, I also believe that those that do walk in integrity will still be questioned because the world doesn’t believe in the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ to forever change a person.

It doesn’t give us the excuse to live lasciviously.

Do not be found without integrity before God. The efficacy of the church is what this is all about. Do not let the devil discredit your testimony because you decide you want to sin sexually.

LGBT: What Is True H8?

There is a misunderstanding of hate (H8) in America and throughout the world.

I know that “H8” is meant to be“HATE,” but I couldn’t help but take advantage of turning something meant to silence truth to speak some Biblical truth.

According to Biblical Numerology, the number 8 represents resurrection or new beginning.

There were only eight persons saved when the floods of Noah came (2 Peter 2:5). These eight persons were used by God to start the whole human race all over again. Hence “new beginning.”

Incidentally, have you also noticed that the flag of LGBT is a “rainbow” flag?

The rainbow was God’s covenant sign to Noah that God would not destroy the earth with water ever again. He never said He wouldn’t destroy the earth. He said He would never destroy the earth with water (see Genesis 9:8-17).

So it appears that they are trying to tell God…“Since we are in covenant with You, You can’t destroy us because You promised You wouldn’t.”

That was the Noahic Covenant.

We are in the Dispensation of Grace. You are given time to repent. You do have an “on or before date.”

The “on or before date” is either the coming of the Lord or your physical expiration. Which ever comes first.

But the Lord did destroy Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone. And the heavens and earth will be destroyed by fire (see 2 Peter 3:3-13).

Jesse, the father of David had eight sons (1 Samuel 17:12). David was the eighth son and was selected by the Lord to be the second king of Israel after the first king, Saul, had failed.

God starting over again with a new king. A new beginning for Israel.

Jesus is called the son of David (Luke 3:31, Matthew 9:27).

Food for thought.

Renouncing sin is a resurrection and a new beginning.

So, do you really hate Jesus that much?

All He wants to do is give you a new beginning without sin.

Hate, a noun, is defined as “the emotion of intense dislike; a feeling of dislike so strong that it demands action.”

Hate is something that everyone experiences. When something is said or done, to the person, it may be deemed hatred.

All sinful people hate God.

Most people will not say it, but in act and deed, people hate God.

As the saying goes, “Action speaks louder than words.”

The thing about God is that both His Words and His omnipotent actions to bring His Word to pass, speaks (see Numbers 23:19, Jeremiah 1:12, and Hebrews 6:13-18).

Sin is defiance of God. People do not like to be told that what they are doing violates the Word of God. That’s why people hate God.

So no effort is spared to attempt to silence God, His Word, and His preachers and believers.

When the day of silence is out there, it is an attempt to silence hate speech.

There is a difference between worldly hate speech and the truth of the Word of God.

What LGBT has done is equate the Word of God with words that the world uses to speak evil of people (such evil speech is completely inconsistent with the Word of God) as hate speech.

Talk about “hate speech,” when John the Baptist told Herod that it was unlawful to have his brother’s wife, Herodias, the wife of Herod went crazy. She looked for a way to get John the Baptist killed. Herod feared John the Baptist and protected John from being killed by throwing him in prison. Herod’s daughter danced before him and other men. Obviously, it was sensuous enough to cause Herod to lose his bearing and said to his daughter, “Ask me for anything you want, and I’ll give it to you.”

Back up a bit.

Remember, Herod sexually took his own brother’s wife. This is adultery.

Herodias was convicted and took it personally. Herod was convicted and tried to protect John.

So sex had everything to do with the death of John the Baptist. For Herodias, it was about the combination of sex and power. After Herod gave his daughter a blank check, Herod’s daughter went back to her mother to find out what could be asked.

It became the perfect opportunity to silence the voice of righteousness.

That same day, the head of John the Baptist was brought on a platter.

Listen to New Unger’s Bible Dictionary.

“The executioner was sent sent to the prison at once, and the ghastly gift was given. John the Baptist was beheaded, the man who “among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater” (Matthew 11:11), the voice of one crying in the wilderness (Luke 7:28) was at last SILENCED.”

It doesn’t matter if it were homosexuals, lesbians, adulterers, fornicators, bisexuals, or anyone in sin. You want to silence the voice of righteousness.

All across the country, pastors are speaking loud and clear about the issues of our times and there is no way that we will cease and desist. Not when we have a God to glorify.

Sadly, even LGBT want God to be silent. Those of us that are called to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ cannot be silent about the truth of the Word of God. You may dance on our graves when we are gone but you won’t have much time to celebrate because another righteous voice will rise to declare the righteousness of God and continue to call all sinners to repentance.

God will always have someone with courage to preach against all sin, including the sin of homosexuality and lesbianism.

You will have your day of silence because it is your right.

In all actuality, your silence is considered as a day that we hear less of the voice of defiance of the living Word of God, and a day where we voice the truth of God’s Word in love.

That deafening sound you will hear all day long is the voice of the righteousness of God.

Even in your silence, there will be no peace for the wicked.

Which would you rather have?

someone lie to you or Someone telling you the truth from the Word of God?

Please don’t mind the intentional error of grammar.

I intentionally lower cased the first someone to let you know that the devil is the one lying to you and the uppercase is God telling you the truth.

If God hated you, you wouldn’t be here to hear the Word of God.

But the plan of salvation is so profound that the Lord kept Noah alive. Through one of Noah’s sons, the Lord Jesus would come through. It happened to be Shem. Profound, if you really think about it.

Now we know that people will not say they hate God but they will say that they hate people that tell sinners what the Word of God says. When a statement is made and then a verse of Scripture from the Bible supports that statement, that’s what people get upset about.

Sometimes they call it a misinterpretation or they call it empty.

When people that do not know God or the Bible accuse those that walked with God, read, and studied the Bible, such action is because there is a dislike of what was said.

Truth is truth whether we like it or not.

God never asked us to like truth. He wants us to know truth (see John 14:6, 17:17).

So when truth comes, why don’t you like what God said?

“I don’t like what you said because it is hate language.” 

What is it that I said that you did not like?

“Saying that homosexuality and lesbianism is sin, hurts.”

How can I say that sin is against God’s will for you any better?

God loves you and wants the best for you, but to continue in any sin that God hates, is wrong according to God’s Word. God doesn’t want to hurt you. He takes no pleasure in watching you be in pain. God desires to save you and to bless you. But if you insist on living against His will for your life, you are left alone by your choice to remain in sin because God cannot allow sin. That’s why He sent His Son, Jesus, to deliver us forever from sin and to give us the promise of eternal life. Eternal life is not just living forever. It is forever living like God.

“Why do “so called Christians” act angry and condemn us?

There are many misguided, overzealous people that do not exemplify the Spirit of Jesus. The fact that sin is sin must never be preached in personal anger. Such sinful behavior of misguided people is beyond what God intended. God hates sin but He also hates misrepresentation of the gospel.

Focus on the fact that sin is not the will of God.

Homosexuality and lesbianism is sin.

There is no excuse for sin when Jesus died to free us of our sinful nature. God’s love for all was demonstrated when He sent Jesus to die for the sins of man on the cross. We can now be reconciled or exchange from being an enemy of God, to a friend of God when we repent and renounce all sin.

Jesus gives the answer in John 3:19-20 as to why LGBT people refuse to come out of sin.

“…and men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.”

And God hates sin. Not people. God loves people.

God knows that people hate Him.

Look at Deuteronomy 5:9-10

“…For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.”

Why do people hate God?

When you are told not to do certain things, sometimes people get angry and begin to hate or have an intense dislike so strong that such dislike demands action.

The common action is to go past the stop sign. God said “Do not do this,” and people get bent out of shape, and angry, and in the strongest ways, they demand their way.

So what is the common response when people are bent on doing sin?

People do it any way.

They completely disregard what the Lord said not to do.

It’s because people have a sinful nature that needs to be changed and only obedience to the gospel of Jesus Christ can change a life.

If you ever had children, when they are about to do something that you know is detrimental or harmful to them, you warn them and tell them not to do it. Some kids get angry and lash out.

Some children wait until a parent isn’t looking and they do it any way. Because children are not mature and parents are mature, it is the responsibility of the parents (male and female that are married) to protect the child.

Protecting the child is also done through instruction. Not just the “rod” alone.

The Lord does the same thing.

He instructs us with His Word.

When we violate or completely disregard what the Lord said, we can expect to receive the consequences.

For instance, when men have sex with men, or when women have sex with women. We all know that the argument of AIDS coming from monkeys is out there. But we all know that when men have sex with men, the risk of acquiring immune deficiency is greatly increased.

What brought about this disease?

Sin.

Paul said in Romans 5:12,

“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned.”

We all know that when a man has sex with another man, through contact of body fluids and blood from open wounds and sores, there is an increased risk of acquiring STDs. We all know that when women have sex with women, genital warts opens the door to be infected with cervical cancer.

We all know that 66% of prostitutes carry herpes. Almost all porn stars and prostitutes have been infected with chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and there is increased potential for it to develop into oral or anal cancer.

We all know that when cancer is detected in HIV infected men and women, it is an unmistakable and undeniable diagnosis that a person has crossed over into AIDS.

The acquiring of STDs is evidence enough of the inherent life threatening dangers when risky sex takes place.

Just because a disease is issued because of sin, it doesn’t mean that God hates you.

It only means that you didn’t want to listen to God’s warning about what would happen if you insist on a sinful behavior. And yes, you have a right to do what you please. It’s so sad that such a decision is an unfortunate one. One that could be prevented.

What’s so gay about STDs? One cannot be happy to acquire a disease.

God warned you not to do this sin and you went ahead, and did it any way.

You touched the third rail.

It’s not the railroad company’s fault if you ignored the sign that said,

DANGER, KEEP OFF THE TRACKS 600 HUNDRED VOLTS.”

Racial Hatred and Sexual Orientation

Racially speaking, White people will never know what hate language from a racial stand point, is about because some will never experience it.

Since the slave ships arrived on the shores of America, racial discrimination became the bedrock foundation of America until Civil Rights were afforded to people that were deemed “less than human.”

Such racial discrimination almost destroyed the country during the Civil War.

However, we all know that even with Civil Rights established as precedence, racial discrimination is still alive and well.

I do not have to challenge anyone. We all know that if you were to put on my skin for one second, things would radically change.

Blacks have been hated and there are still pockets of racial discrimination in parts of this nation.

There is a problem when sin is brought to the level of racial discrimination.

The two issues are so far apart, it is amazing that very few African Americans sounded the alarm. It is amazing how swift the hijacking of Civil Rights came about. Perhaps, it was because the unfinished business of racial equality needed a new voice and direction.

I believe it is more like….

because the Blacks in the church (no such thing as the Black or White church in the church of Jesus Christ) were already in bed with sexual sins that to stop Secret Sexual Sins that is too far and too deep inside African American culture and the church, no one would come to church.

It’s said when the only reason some folk come to church for is to hook up sexually.

Black pastors have egregiously allowed homosexuals and lesbians to play, sing, dance, and preach in the church. But it is not just the homosexuals that play in the church. Bisexual, adulterers, and fornicators are within the ranks as well. The music ministry is full of performers that are seducing the church with the spirit of lust.

Many are trapped in porn and masturbation.

The problem is that since we allowed these sins to be prevalent in abundance in the church, it was very easy to take a political issue of racial equality and mix it with racial discrimination that before any one could discern the difference, sexual discrimination and sexual bigotry became covertly add on household terms to live overt sinful lifestyles.

As a Black man, it is appalling that very few stood against this mixture of racial discrimination and sexual orientation.

Do not argue with a Black man until you wear the skin of a Black man.

When it comes to racial bigotry, it is a matter of skin.

When it comes to sexual preference, it is a matter of sin.

One pastor said that “Marriage is discriminatory.”

Agreed!

Marriage was designed by God to be between one man and one woman. All other attempts to introduce alternatives and substitutes violates God’s Word. That includes shacking up, living together outside of marriage, one night stands, masturbation, and any other type of alternative or substitute.

Sexual sins is not about racial discrimination.

When you call a Black man a n****r, we all know that it is a derogatory term meant to harm with words, a person of African descent. Sadly, as a side note, our own younger generation of African Americans use this term of bigotry among themselves.

The Civil Rights movement was about eliminating racial bigotry and establishing racial equality. All of a sudden, we see the sins of homosexuality literally hijacking the spirit of Civil Rights.

We now see terms like “sexual equality, sexual orientation, and sexual discrimination” placed on the same level of Civil Rights regarding racial equality.

According to my good friend, Pastor DL Foster of Witness Freedom Ministries, there is clear racial prejudice among homosexuals.

These are my (FCR) words.

Blacks are still riding the back of the bus when it comes to homosexual issues. Black homosexuals make up half of HIV/AIDS cases in the US and Africa Americans only make up 12% of the American population.

Believe me when I tell you.

I am not advocating white homosexuals to adjust their racial discrimination against African Americans to get them to the head of the table to continue in sin.

When it comes to sin, God condemned sin in the flesh of Jesus and repentance is the only way to settle the issue of sin. When it comes to sin, God is no respecter of persons.

My position is clear.

I am a child of God first. African American second.

God created me with the color I was born with but by the new birth of Jesus, my relationship with the Lord Jesus transcends my race.

But when it comes to watching African Americans go head long down the path of sin. Any person for that matter, it is sad to watch.

So what is true H8?

True H8 is when you H8 the lies of the devil and accept the truth from the Word of God.

True H8 is when you hate the sin of homosexuality, repent of all sin, renounce sin, and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.

There is no easy way to tell you. And I refuse to compromise the integrity of the Scriptures to try to sugarcoat, dilute, or adulterate the Word of God.

Which will you accept?

The devil’s lies? Or continue to H8 the truth of God, as expressed in His Word?

LGBT: Teach?

Some of you may have noticed these bumper stickers in purple (purple is symbolic of royalty- as a note, satan always wanted to be royal and king), with white lettering and symbols, “COEXIST” and “TOLERANCE.

There is another sticker.

“TEACH.”

We know that this is part of a homosexual agenda of global reach. Whether they are directly or indirectly involved, we know that it is a demonic strategy to dethrone Christ to religion’s level.

“TEACH” is made up of the following symbols.

1. Christian Cross;

2. Male and Female;

3. Jewish Star;

4. Islamic Star and Crescent;

5. Baha’i 9 Pointed Star;

6. Peace Sign.

Additional religious symbols are:

7. Taoist Yin Yang; Buddhist Wheel; Hindu Om; Native American Indian Kokopelli; Zia Sun; Sikh Khanda; Indian Jainism; Pagan Pentagram; Atheist Atom; Unitarian Chalice

The most interesting thing about these bumper stickers is that at the beginning or at the end of the word, the “T,” representing the cross, is there.

Very few people understand what the cross represents. Some people just think it is only a Christian symbol.

It’s more to it than that.

It represents the place of death. Meaning that something must be crucified. But before I get into the details of the cross, we must understand what the objective of the bumper stickers.

It is clear that with the words “COEXIST, TOLERANCE, and TEACH”, we see that the world is trying to declare all religions as one or ecumenical.

The world is trying to tell Christians that we have to coexist, tolerate, and teach the religions of the world to become one.

Ecumenical simply is about promoting unity among churches and religions.

In short.

Compromise for the good of unity.

Here’s where they have a major problem on their hands.

Here’s God’s point from His own Word through the prophet Isaiah chapter 46:5.

“To whom will you liken Me, and make me equal and compare Me, that we should be alike?”

The Bible stands alone as the Word of God, because God stands alone as the true God.

Jesus said in John 17:3,

“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and His Son, Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”

Isaiah 46:9 says,

“Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God and there is none like Me,”

So why would I want any other when God is God all by HImself and there is none like Him? Why do all of the religions want to be like Him when they can’t?

If you put them all together, they all appear to look equal. But what makes God and Jesus stand out as incomparable?

We will get to that in a moment.

The prophet Isaiah said this in chapter 47 and verses 12 and 13.

This is what makes God the true and living God.

“Listen to Me, O Jacob, and Israel, My called: I am He, I am the First, I am also the Last. Indeed Me hand has laid the foundation of the earth, and My right hand has stretched out the heavens; when I call them, they stand up together.”

Could any of their gods say that they “laid the foundation of the earth?”

And for good measure, Who do you think the right hand of the Lord God is?

No other than Jesus.

John, the disciple, and eyewitness apostle of the Lamb, said…

“In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him and without Him was not anything made that was made.”

Paul, said in Colossians 1:15,

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.”

Mark, John Mark, cousin of Barnabas, said this in Mark 16:19,

“So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.”

The writer of Hebrews said in chapter 12 and verse 2,

“…looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

So, without further delay, you can see why the “T” by their own hand, is placed first and last on their bumper sticker.

God will not coexist or tolerate any other because God is God alone, there is none like Him and, they cannot teach God anything.

The religions of the world want to reduce the finished work of Jesus.

They will never qualify because the cross represents death.

Paul mentioned this in the book of Galatians 3:13,

“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.’) -see Deuteronomy 21:23-

WIll any of the religions volunteer their gods to be cursed like Jesus?

The other gods and proponents of their religions will not send anyone to die for the sins of the whole world. They do not qualify because they do not have sinless blood to offer. And they cannot carry the weight of the sins of the whole world like Jesus did on the day He was crucified.

So, they cannot teach us anything about the Father because they were never there in the beginning. They weren’t there to create the foundations of the world and stretch the heavens.

Can’t we just get along?

Nope! Not when God is “God alone. From before time began, He was on His throne…….”

Therefore, they cannot teach God, true Christians of the church of the Firstborn from the dead anything. Oh. I forgot. God didn’t raise any of their gods from the dead. God only raised Jesus from the dead.

1. Create the foundations of the world.

2. Be at the right hand of God to create the heavens and the earth.

3. Be sent to the earth to die on the cross (“T”) for the sins of man.

4. Be raised from the dead by God, the Father.

5. Be seated at the right hand of God.

Otherwise, you can’t really TEACH humanity anything.

LGBT: Can You Be Holy And Be In Sin At The Same Time?

God offers forgiveness of sins. God offers cleansing from sin. God offers His love in grace to those that repent of sins. This offer doesn’t include returning to commit sin. God’s condition for forgiveness is for you to repent (turn away forever from sin), and receive His love, grace, and mercy. God’s condition is for you to refrain and abstain from sin.

Jesus didn’t die so that we can continue in sin. He died to free us from sin.

Can you be holy and be an adulterer? Can you be holy and a fornicator? Can you be holy and a bisexual? Can you be holy and engage in sex with an animal? Can you be holy and cheat, steal, kill, rob, and lie? Can you be holy and hateful? Can you be holy and full of pride and arrogance?

Do you agree that adultery is wrong?

Do you agree that fornication (porn) is wrong?

Do you agree that kidnapping young children, women, and teens for the sex trade is wrong?

Do you agree that priests or even Christian ministers that rape and molest young boys and girls is wrong?

Do you agree that having sex with your mother is wrong?

Of course, some of you do because God said it was wrong.

The same God also told us that men having sex with men is wrong and women having sex with women is wrong.

In 1 Samuel 2:2-3, Hannah, the mother of the prophet Samuel, and last judge of Israel said,

“No one is holy like the Lord, for there is none besides You, nor is there any rock like our God. “Talk no more so very proudly; let no arrogance come from your mouth, for the Lord is the God of knowledge; and by Him actions are weighed.”

The one thing that you will constantly and consistently see is that God is holy.

He loves you enough to tell you that He is holy. That means that His character is perfect. Man is imperfect because of…..sin.

Now because God is holy, how can we live in sin and be holy in His presence?

Is it possible to live in sin and be holy at the same time?

You see, we want to have God in our lives with our sin and that cannot be possible.

As I have said before, God demonstrated His love by sending His Son to die for our sins so we can be free of sin. The love of God is not about letting you have your way and live the way you want to. The love of God is about saving you from sin.

Is God holy? Yes or No. If you say yes, then to have a relationship with God, you must be holy.

How can a person be holy?

It is only by accepting the provision of salvation to repent of sins and relinquish sin. By declaring Him Lord over your life.

To declare Jesus Lord over your life means that you turn over to Him your life and let Him help you control your life. That’s where the Word of God comes and helps you to understand what sin is and live a righteous life.

The initial prayer of accepting Jesus is powerful enough to transform a person. What a sinner must do is relinquish control of his or her life to Jesus and learn from the Bible how to live the way God wants you to live.

By learning from the Bible how the Lord wants us to live means that you commit sin no more because God is holy. It also means that you do not hate anyone anymore because the love of God is spread in our hearts by the Holy Spirit.

Being holy is not a self righteous act. Being holy is living like the Father lives.

How does the Father live?

All we need to do is look at the way Jesus lived.

Jesus is the expression of the Father.

You see, it is not just about loving like Jesus loves. It is about living as Jesus lived.

Jesus lived with no need for sins. When we believe in Jesus, we have no need for sins. We have no need for adultery, fornication, bisexuality, homosexuality, lesbianism, lying, cheating, stealing, murdering, covetousness, etc.

True believers are satisfied in Jesus that sin is no longer necessary (see John chapter 4).

That’s what being a true believer in Jesus is about. Having no need for sin because Jesus meets your every need.

Your need for love.

Fulfilled in Jesus.

Your need for true satisfaction.

Fulfilled in Jesus.

Your need for comfort.

Fulfilled in Jesus.

Sin can never fulfill. Sin always leave you unfulfilled and unsatisfied.

When you look to adultery, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, and other sins, you are not truly satisfied.

As you look at your life, do you feel depressed, angry, upset, dissatisfied?

If you are, there is a reason.

Sin is a disconnection from life. As long as you go through life without God in righteousness, you cannot be truly at peace and happy with yourself.

Why?

You are doing something that God never created you to do.

Sin.

What tends to happen is that people deceive themselves into thinking that they are satisfied and fulfilled in sin and we know that it is not true.

Sin is a violation of God’s righteous standard. Sin compels you to act out in ways that is not healthy. Sin leaves a dissatisfied feeling. Sin is bondage.

Look at what Paul said to believers living a sinful lifestyle in Romans 8.

“For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.

So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you.

Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.

For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.”

Now, LGBT, if you claim to be brothers and sisters in Christ, what is your issue with what Paul said here in the above verses of Scripture?

Copy and paste it to your response. What do you really think about what these verses of Scripture are about?

Will you ignore these verses of Scripture or will you honestly look at them and see where you truly stand?

You are still looking for something that is only found in Jesus.

Forgiveness of sins. Love. Compassion. Righteousness. Peace. Happiness. Joy. Contentment.

Many have fooled themselves into thinking that they are satisfied, but deep down, you know Someone is missing.

Being holy is about being in control. Not allowing the very thing that God hates to control everything that you do.

Can you do without adultery? Can you do without fornication? Can you do with homosexuality? Can you do without lesbianism? Can you do without bestiality? Can you do without bisexuality?

Can you get married to the opposite sex according to Genesis 2:21-25 and be husband and wife?

These are the very questions that confront all sinners including LGBT.
