Persecution Over Sexual Immorality: Silver Bracelets, Steel Bars, And A Stainless Steel Toilet Bowl

The early church was confronted, and persecuted for its beliefs in Jesus. In comparison, the church today is Club Med. We are riding to the Caribbean on a cruise ship. We are dancing the night away and having a good time. The more you become salt and light in the earth for the Lord Jesus, the more you become a target to be persecuted.

Your finest hour of faith is not going to be your car, house, boat, or money from book royalties. Your finest hour will be your testimony for the sufferings of Christ. Can you fellowship with the sufferings of Christ?

We’ve been reading our Bibles wrong and we have misquoted so many “stand in faith” Scriptures.

Paul imprisoned many and consented to the deaths of Christians. Yet, Jesus personally enlisted him and Paul ended up being a martyr for the Lord.

Hear what the Lord Jesus said in Mark 10:28-31,

“Then Peter began to say to Him, “See, we have left all and followed You.” So Jesus answered and said, “ Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel’s, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions—and in the age to come, eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”

The thing that we are ready for is the abundance when we leave all for the cause of Christ but we are not really ready for the persecution that is incrementally rising in the United States. We are conveniently comfortable. But all this is about to change whether you are ready for it or not.

Sexual immorality is the most divisive issue of our day.

When you talk to someone about their sins, sexual sins, Secret Sexual Sins, their participation in sex sins is worth more than money, drugs, alcohol, cars, house, or any other thing.

When you tell someone that they have to give up sexual immorality, you are taking a great risk because they will fight to the death to keep sexual immorality.

It’s not just homosexuality, it’s all sexual sins across the board.

The life of sin is so difficult to break from because of the promise of complete fulfillment.

All sexual sins, or any sins for that matter, gives this promise but it’s just a carrot on a stick that teases.

As the Lord told us, “…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.”

The gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation.

The child of God today need to be aware that persecution is part of the price for being a child of God. You are salt and light in the earth and the devil is looking to render you ineffective in your walk before the Lord. If the devil cannot render you ineffective, he will intimidate you.

Fear for your life is one of the many tools that they enemy will use to get you to back away from preaching the truth of the Word of God. That’s why we need to shift our message. Not to confront as radical extremists but to preach the Word of God in season.

You are not liked. You are hated because of Jesus.

Therefore, you are a target. We had it good for a while. Nobody bothered us because we weren’t living lives of conviction. We didn’t have to tell anyone that we were a Christian. We kept things to ourselves but with GPS capabilities attached to your phone. With every credit or debit card purchase. With swiping a card to gain access to your job. When you log on a computer. Whether it is yours or the company you work for, you are being tracked to the maximum.

Your whereabouts is crucial because if they can determine what you believe, all they have to do is see what you’ve been up to and what your habits are.

Yes, big brother is watching you almost to the nano second, everything that you do.

Your habits are telling everyone what you are really about.

Why is this important?

Persecution is about to move from passive annoyance to chasing you.

You don’t think so?

The way that things are set up, do you honestly believe that the world is not going to bother you for your allegiance to Jesus? Do you think that by not carrying a Bible except by electronic devices that no one will discern who you really are?

I am not trying to scare you to live right. I am just warning you that our nice Christianity is about to experience a jolt that will require that you stay vigilant in Jesus. To not be moved away from the hope of the gospel.

If you study the writings of Paul, you will see that they were living in perilous times.

So perilous that if you knew Paul, your life was in danger. Every where Paul went, he started trouble and that’s the kind of Christianity the church is not aware of. We are not packaging a stand to be hated. We are already hated because they hate Jesus. We are not making a “confront the persecutors” package.

But when you know persecution is about to hit this nation for its stand against same sex unions, the sin of homosexuality is becoming the one thing that the world dares the church to unapologetically stand against.

The goal of persecution is to silence the voice of righteousness. To stop the defection from darkness to light (see Acts 26:18). Hence, NO H8’s duct tape over the mouths to silence people that speak the truth about the sin of homosexuality.

Soon, we may see duct tape over the mouths of saints as full blown persecution takes place. At this point, murder is against the law but we may see the day where the murder of a child of God that speaks the truth, and is not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, is welcomed news.

It is interesting that the Book of Romans starts off talking about not being ashamed of the gospel of Christ and then in that same chapter, ends up preaching against same sex relations, the sin of homosexuality.

It really fascinates me to know that God was preparing His people for the hour we are now living in.

People of God, we are in the end times and this is not the time to be ashamed of Jesus.

This is the time to be firmly planted in the faith of Christ.

If you read the writings of Paul, you will see that many people that were once in the church left because of the persecution. But it wasn’t the only reason. Sadly, some people loved sin more than they loved the Lord.

Many were turned away to listen to other false teachers and prophets that had major connections to sexual immorality. If that is not enough, the persecution comes directly from members of the Body of Christ; people that supposed to “know God and their Bibles.”

You won’t know what a person believes until the moment of truth.

Just look at your family members.

How many of them are caught up in situations of the world of sexual immorality or substance abuse? You know that they know that you are into the Lord and His Word. The moment a conversation goes into Jesus, they are quick to shout you down because of their love for sin.

When you go to church, you didn’t expect so and so to be a practicing homosexual. You didn’t expect your pastor to come out of the closet and admit to his or her homosexuality and then persecute the righteous for not being tolerant. You didn’t expect that so many people would be for the president when he announced his support for gay marriages.

All of a sudden, the local church is seeing the demarcation. There is a deep divide on a simple sin/righteousness issue (see 2 Corinthians 6:14-18). And the divide in most local churches is not surprising.

In some cases, there’s no divide at all. The whole local church is for sexual immorality or the whole local church is for righteousness.

The hour we are living in is late and dark. We must make up our minds to stand in the face of persecution and dig deeper into Him like never before.

The hearts of men are failing everywhere and the world is proceeding on a perilous course that will separate the weak from the strong. The desperate for sin from the desperate for God. If you haven’t experienced the hatred, and the false prophets of our times to deceive many, you will.

The First Homosexual President?: Why Not Use A Black Man?

You’ve read this correctly. I admit. I am not the first to break this but others have been voicing this. It is inconceivable and unfathomable to think that anyone that support the sin of homosexuality is not involved in the sin of homosexuality themselves. Perverseness knows no boundaries. We must understand that sin is the Global Initiative of satan. The moment you understand this is the moment you will either turn from wickedness and turn to the Lord or go deeper into the abyss of immorality, leading all participants to the pit of hell itself.

We have never seen a sitting president advocate for gay rights as this president. 3% of the American population is homosexual. Yet, we are seeing the very seat of Executive Power flaunt homosexuality as if he was a practicing homosexual himself.

Just like the press, when they do not ask certain questions, yet, we see unparalleled support of LGBT initiatives, there is no question that someone need to muster up the courage to ask…..

“Mr. President, you have done more for gay rights than any other sitting president in history. Your support for gay marriage is on the record. My question to you is, ‘Are you a homosexual or bisexual person?”

The ladies on The View won’t ask. No courage there. CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC. Forget it.

Many will say….

That’s none of your business. Or. When he is ready he will tell the world. Or. So what if he is, I’ll still vote for him. Or. He’s a married man, to a woman. What evidence do you have that the president is gay?

So far, the trail of evidence apart from other sources, leads us to preponderance so far, but we shouldn’t be surprised. I’m not a prophet. A pastor/teacher, that’s my limitation in ministry. However…..

An admission? A picture? How about….

I shudder to think about the president and….. making that walk on that long walkway on the red carpet that leads to the East Room.

There is no question in our minds that there are other issues on the table that need a president’s attention but when you see this timeline, and it is a record of accomplishments that gives this timeline a powerful argument that there is an agenda behind an agenda, we need to pay more attention to what is happening.

As I have said before, White presidents were never confronted with LGBT issues except President Clinton.

They now get an African American President. The first one and it’s almost like the switch came on. We can use this Black man to further our causes.

But not just any Black man. One that purports his “faith.” So on the back of a Black Man and at the expense of the church, LGBT has successfully found a way to influence the nation to accept the sin of homosexuality.

Gay Christian Movement Watch has been on this for quite some time. The Lord uses people in places that we shy away from not realizing that the Lord was warning us all along but we have failed to take heed because we have no prominent voices that are zealous for the Lord. We are too busy personal pimping people in the church for kingdom of man building.

All of a sudden, we have a chance to attack sin and we are the number one supporter of sin, and that of the sin of homosexuality. And inside the church, with gay musicians, bisexual music ministers and singers, porn and masturbation operating all in the pulpit and choir lofts, sexual immorality is alive and well.

Perverseness is increasing and the church leaders have not garnered the courage to stop this mess in the church. When African American pastors are called upon to be standard-bearers, we become standard bearers all right.

For sexual immorality of every type.

We don’t know how to control ourselves so, in rebellion, we refuse to preach with such conviction that the Holy Spirit brings the fear of the Lord in the house.

“I ain’t scared of no God!”

It’s the land of Canaan all over again.

Some of us are so gullible that we will ignore what the prophets are saying and vote for a president that supports the sin of homosexuality.

How would God look at you when He poured His wrath out on Sodom and Gomorrah and you support the sin of homosexuality today?

You better check yourself!

3% of the American population is homosexual and they have a place in the White House to push America towards its darkest days yet.

The late John Osteen, the father of Joel Osteen said, “We need the power of the Holy Spirit for the dark days that lie ahead.”

My God, he saw, perhaps, the spiritual and moral decay that would face this nation and warned us.

I’ve come to realize that sometimes it’s more than gaining support to keep you in office. There is more issues that are more important than gay issues.

On the contrary.

When it comes to sexual immorality, the downfall of every nation or the dark places of a nation is determined by morality or immorality. The darker a nation, the more heinous its morals.

As a side note, I witnessed a fascinating video of Sodom and Gomorrah (courtesy of a YouTube link provided by Pastor DL Foster http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwTVFk1HK3Y).

The explorers discovered that the Sodium Bicarbonate was it’s purest form as they walked in the cities where Sodom was destroyed by the Lord. Literally the Lord melted the cities that operated in perverseness. The video also noted that the area surrounding the overthrown cities differentiated in color. The white substance was brimstone and the areas not touched were naturally normal and consistent with the environment.

Secondly, the substance of Sodium Bicarbonate had no earthly mixture, in that the sodium had no byproducts to point to the fact that earth produced the sodium bicarbonate. It was poured out as the Scriptures pointed out in Genesis 19.

The Lord intended to never let these cities be rebuilt so that it once again be known as a place to go to for sexual perverseness. If they would have been able to rebuild, only the Lord knew to what levels of perverseness they would have descended to.

Yet, today, we are seeing perverseness on unprecedented scales.

Pure sin warranted pure destruction.

Having said this, please check this timeline, courtesy of Gay Christian Movement Watch.

You cannot read this, huff and puff and have a hissy fit to disprove the fact that LGBT has the White House on a clear agenda that is a present danger to the spiritual climate of this nation.

And now, please view the timeline.

Sexual Immorality: Pulpit Pimp Wimps & Devilish Bullies

As I watch the aftermath of the president’s announcement to support same sex marriage, you wonder where in the world are those that are to be standard bearers of the truth. On many of the mainline news, we see Carlton Pearson, T.D. Jakes, and others take a stand against the Word of God.

For instance, During a one on one interview, Bishop Jakes was asked about what African American pastors are saying about the fact of the president’s Christianity.

Bishop Jakes responded in such a way that it questioned what he is really all about.

In a nut shell, Bishop Jakes expressed his “disappointment” that some pastors do not think that the president is a Christian.

Well.

Is it possible to be a Christian and support the sin of homosexuality? Is it possible to be a Christian and support fornication? Is it possible to be a Christian and support adultery? Is it possible to be a Christian and support lesbians? Is it possible to be a Christian and support lying, cheating, stealing, bisexuality, bestiality, porn, masturbation, etc.?

What does the Bible say about sin and why did Jesus come to the earth? He came to die for the sins of the world.

To defend sin is to be a friend of the world according to James 4:4.

If you are going to defend a person that supports sexual immorality, you can’t be a friend of God until you repent. This is what sympathetic African American or any other race of pastors do. Instead of disrespecting sin and supporters of sin, they end up disrespecting God and His Word.

How will people know the difference between righteousness and unrighteousness if we support the thing that we are supposed to be against?

And we wonder why folk still stay messed up. Is it another way to keep the seats warm and the money coming in so that we won’t lose the level of lifestyle of the rich and famous of preachers? It’s the truth and we are still oblivious to the penalty that will come according to Ezekiel 34.

Then you watch Carlton Pearson, an apostate, inclusionist preacher with Harry Jackson on CNNCarlton Pearson used Hebrews 13:4 to justify same sex marriages.

As a pastor, you expect to voice the fact that Carlton Pearson raped and partially quoted that Scripture.

“Marriage is honorable among all and the bed undefiled…..” 

As like the time when the devil took Jesus upon a high pinnacle and said to Him If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written “He shall give His angels charge of you and in their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against the stone.”

You see, the devil will always misquote and partially Scripture to get you to walk in error. If he could somehow, get you to question or second guess what God said in His Word, the devil has succeeding in placing doubt, fear, and unbelief. Because if you ever get to trust the truth, the devil cannot and will not win!

The devil quoted Psalm 91:12 but the devil avoided verse 13.

Carlton Pearson avoided the rest of that Scripture because it mentioned the judgment of God that will happen to people that do not get married and commit adultery and fornication.

But the intent of the demonic influence was to indicate to the audience that same sex marriage is honorable and the bed of homosexuals is not defiled or soiled.

Another trick of the enemy. Know we got to turn this around. Challenge what they say as lies and stop being politically correct when the incorrect application of Scripture is before you. Do not fear their faces. Stand for a change and preach for the truth without missing a beat or flinching.

Two pastors with no backbone because there was no rebuttal of the misuse, misappropriated, misapplied use of Scripture and Carlton Pearson, under heavy demonic influence, lied to people.

As a pastor, the first thing that you ask is, “Where is the precedence for marriage established?”

Genesis 2:21-25.

God did not say that a man shall leave father and father and cleave to his male mate. God did not say that a man shall leave mother and mother and cleave to her wife. 

The Word is clear and we keep letting these guys get away with perverting the truth.

We have yet to see backboned pastors use the very thing that is the tool of our trade.

THE WORD OF GOD!

We must never let the reputation or past reputation of people deter us from preaching the truth and point out the spirit of error.

If you are reading this and you are sympathetic to the thing that God is against, there is no question that you are a compromised pastor or believer. No matter what, the truth must be preached and lived. If you cannot stand for the truth, you fell for the lie. And you are no longer competent to speak the Bible into the hearts of people the way God demands.
