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!”
