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!”
