The Uncertainty Of Homosexual Behavior Being Sinful: Rick Warren’s Dilemma

A report by Christiannews.net is revealing holes in Rick Warren’s recent statement concerning homosexuals.

Every time you see him and the others capitulate, it sends shock waves. These men of God, such as TD Jakes, John Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Goerge Bloomer, and others are not as forth coming when it comes to the very basic responses to “soft ball” tossed question about the sin of homosexuality.

In my opinion, the news media always asks the wrong people.

Why?

Because they know what they are going to get from these people that claim to be “Christian leaders of the 21st Century.”

Take a look at this article, and then come back….

http://christiannews.net/2012/11/29/rick-warren-uncertain-if-homosexual-behavior-is-sinful-says-gays-go-to-heaven/

The Bible is clear about the sin of homosexuality. We all know Leviticus 18:22, Romans 1:18-32, Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:1-4, 1 Corinthians 6:9-20, Ephesians 5:24-33. At least good students of the Word of God should know.

Babes are different.

The world. Forget it. Even when you print it for them, they look at you like God didn’t say it.

But when you hear capitulation statements from prominent men and women of God, people that graduated from some formal renowned school, received honorary doctorates, or they may have earned them, out right, you wonder what in the world were they taught, and who taught them? Or they deliberately and intentionally deviated from what they were taught and have become so full of themselves that they teach variations of the truth.

Mutant Variations of Scriptures!

Sin used to be black and white.

Now there is so much gray that we really do not have any idea what sin is. Usually when I see this, sometimes, and it’s not with every preacher and teacher of the Word, that sin may have crept into their own lives. When leaders bring a mutation (an event that changes the [spiritual] genetic structure) of the Bible, there is tremendous amount of believers waiting to have an excuse to sin. When it comes from these “leaders,” we are seeing Matthew 15:1-9 all over again.

“Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.” 

When there is an intentional deviation from the Word of God where the “absolutes” of God’s Word is diluted, it’s no wonder that the church is in the condition that it’s in. The world (Oprah Winfrey) has used their demonic influence to where if Elijah were here on earth, he would cringe. This is the time to show the world who our God is, and we do what Elijah had done before he was taken up in a whirlwind. Run from Jezebel. The sad thing is that we have not even prayed to God. We haven’t allowed God to work a miracle to turn the hearts of God’s people back to Him.

Baal has answered, and he is god (sarcastically).

I’m not trying to insult their intelligence but when you see certain undeniable statistics regarding the pandemic of HIV/AIDS and other STDs in the world and also in the Body of Christ, why isn’t someone sounding the alarm? Why are we doing a “two step” around this issue?

It is crazy to think that when you arrive on the stage of notoriety, fame, fortune, and glitter that I believe they lose it because the measure of influence that they now come into, should they say anything contrary to popular worldly belief, they would lose people, prestige, money, and influential power.

HOW DO YOU LOSE A MEGA CHURCH?

Preach the truth.

James said it clearly….

“Let your YEA be YEA and your NAY be NAY,” lest you fall into judgment.”

If you are uncertain about the sin of homosexuality, get certain about it now before you fall into judgment.

The abandonment for the truth is quickly being thrown aside for fear of the loss of all things gained.

It appears to me that God will let you keep what you’ve built. Just so that when you stand before Him, you will watch it all go through the fire (1 Corinthians 3:12-15), and you will suffer loss.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Most blogs that are written by people will not get read and passed to the right people. Or they do get to them, but it is soundly ignored.

Have we become so full of ourselves that we can no longer recognize the truth of God’s Word about certain undeniable things said by God in His Word? I believe that we have reached this point. That no matter what is true in God’s Word, we can completely ignore it.

A preacher’s high profile status is too important for truth. So important, that we can mutate Scripture so we wouldn’t offend anyone.

I don’t have gay friends. I have ex homosexual friends that moved, as Pastor DL Foster would say, “From Struggle To Strength.”

You cannot be so full of your own wisdom that you keep yourself so insulated from what is happening with other people that effectively ministers the power of God’s Word. There are 7000 that have not bowed their knee to Baal. Of course, people will write to Rick Warren. Others have emailed him already. They say that when something sensational hits the internet, in one second, 2 million persons are aware of it.

In the Navy, we have a saying. “You can always tell how big a battleship is by how fast scuttlebutt gets around.”

No different than water cooler gossip.

But truth gets around fast and people forget it quickly or they intentionally ignore it.

So, let me conclude by saying…..

Rick Warren, I rebuke you and your statements. 

It’s time to stand for the truth and unapologetically do so. We must be about the Father’s business.

Some will say, “You’ve gone too far with this.”

Quite frankly, I haven’t gone far enough. If I had the right tools at my disposal, I would do more.

And yes, the Bible is clear about the Word regarding the sin of homosexuality, and all sin for that matter.

Otherwise, the Lord need to raise from the dead everyone of them He destroyed at Sodom and Gomorrah, and apologize to them on international TV.

The Crisis Of Available Single Males

From the Biblical prospective, God created male and female. To become one flesh, they must be married and they are authorized to copulate and have children. Today, we are seeing a continual increase in young males becoming homosexuals and bisexual.

It is no surprise. The media and other instruments serve to demonically assist males to divert from the normal pattern to that which is abnormal.

Here is the results from a salacious website that I will not provide the link to. But the information contained is stunning.

“During a teleconference Tuesday, the CDC delivered fresh statistics showing that young people between the ages of 13 and 24 account for 26 percent of new HIV infections in part because 60 percent of them don’t know they are infected.

“Young gay and bisexual men report much higher levels of risky behavior than their heterosexual peers,” CDC Director Thomas Frieden says. “Gay and bisexual males are much more likely to have multiple sex partners, inject drugs, use alcohol and drugs before sex and more likely to not use condoms.”

The CDC analysis includes data from 2010 and is the latest information on HIV infections, testing and risk behaviors among young people.

Each month, some 1,000 young people are infected with HIV and, in 2010, 72 percent of those new infections occurred in young gay and bisexual men. For young black gay men, the numbers are more stark: They account for 39 percent of all new infections among the 13 to 24 age group.”

It is clear that this pandemic affects African Americans. Couple that with abortion and we can see why our African American population is deceasing. Sadly, the NAACP and other interconnected organizations and supporters will not lift a finger to sound the alarm. It’s difficult for them to do so because African American pastors are not serious about changing. When you are sympathetic to the sin of homosexuality and you erroneously equate the sin of homosexuality with the Civil Rights struggle, it is very easy to overlook the countless caskets, filled with our people who were lied to.

Sadly, and most profoundly, the countless numbers of people that never made Jesus as Lord and Savior that lifted their eyes in hell. For the Bible says that “the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of heaven.”

The other thing that is pathetic is that, according to an article passed to us on FB by Pastor DL Foster of GCMWatch, that after the election, African Americans had the nerve to press president Obama about education and unemployment issues, to have a seat at the table.

Really?

I guess we really got our priorities together.

So being that we have our priorities together, we can really look good. Mass murderers resulting from adultery and fornication, and proponents of the sin of homosexuality.

Having this priority together, we are really smart, intelligent, and looking to slap ourselves on the back for having elected and re-elected the first black president to make sure that we continue our gold star, “we shall overcome” movement.

It’s said that more deaths with occur. But when it’s all over, people will, after they die, say….“Man. God was right all along.”

The old guard Civil Rights tactics of accusing true church leaders of homophobia and discrimination has mesmerized and stupefied the majority of the 12% population of African Americans. There is no excuse to continue to watch our young African American boys go down this path of homosexuality and bisexuality. However, it is clear that as far as sin is concerned, the world will do everything possible to keep sin.

In the church, this is a tragedy of epic proportions.

We must continue to sound the alarm. Too often, when the alarm is sounded, people are used to the sound and roll over in bed. But, keep rolling over. When this hits your door step, you will pay attention.

Since the NAACP really doesn’t have any influence and since the African American leadership in the church is in bed, literally, with Secret Sexual Sins, is there any chance for this gaping breach to be closed?

I am reminded that these are the last days.

There are many African American pastors that is preaching and living the Word of God out. Their example of living holy in an unholy world is exemplary, but is it enough?

The one thing that we must never do is give up and give in to the devil. We must fight to the last man and woman.

Young girls are caught in the middle.

It is a serious possibility that single women will end up infected, pregnant, or both. If the trend continues, it’s almost as if we are seeing a stead decline to where the African American family edges closer and closer to non-existence.

For instance, in the 1940’s and 1950’s roughly 47% of families had a mother and father that were married in the home. Today, it is roughly 15%. Families do well when there is a married to one woman male in the home. With the divorce rate at around 50% with the vast majority of divorces having a root cause of porn and masturbation, prostitution, and bisexuality as a significant contributor to divorces, the women are definitely under attack.

In reading the book of Revelation 12, we see that the woman is constantly being attacked. While she was partly to blame for the debacle in the Garden, yet, the Lord still used her (Mary) to birth the Savior of the world through the immaculate conception of Christ. And after the birth of Christ, she is still being attacked.

Now, it seems that she is being intentionally isolated by the depletion of available single males. It is impossible for righteous seed to flood the earth if males increasingly become bisexual or homosexual, or serves himself with porn, prostitutes, fornicate, and commit adultery, and have self sex. Males are sexually out of control and they haven’t figured out that true intimacy comes from being in fellowship with the One that created him.

If there was ever a time for the church to sound the alarm, now is the time.

But the sound of the alarm on a sinking ship is an alarm too late.

Or is it?

The question is not “Where is God?”

The question is “Adam, where are you?”

When God asks a question, it’s never for His benefit. The Lord is omniscient or all knowing. The Father knows all.

Man, you need to get back to God to find where you are. You are in a crisis and the numbers do not lie.

While they are saying that abortion is on the decline by 5%, the hidden statistic is the over the counter abortion pill. If you can eliminate a child by taking a pill, it is not considered an abortion where a doctor surgically murder a child. You murder the child through a “morning after” pill. Heaven still mourns when a morning after pill is used to kill a child.

Where are you, man?

You are supposed to protect and serve the family.

Where are you, man?

Is it true that you really do not care and that you are thinking with your urges and impulses leading the way?

Where are you, man?

This crisis could end with you. This pandemic of death, this cycle of destruction can stop.

It is very easy to preach what Paul said to women, “Women, if you are burning, for the sake of sexual immorality, find a husband.”

But where can you find them if they are not in church, but out there in the world? Where can you find them when they are trafficking among males in homosexual bars, and such? Where can an available single woman find an available, clean single male. A virgin?

Women are crying out to the Lord for some semblance of normalcy and cannot find any because a male is incapable of living with his pants zipped up.

Pray, saints. Pray God’s power to rise in the churches to stop promiscuity among our children. Pray God’s power to fill the hearts and minds of men before they see the ill gotten pleasures of lust, that takes them to places that they thought they would never go. Pray that God have mercy before a man loses his virginity and becomes sexually experienced with the destructive forces of Secret Sexual Sins.

“Call upon Me, and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things that you do not know about.” Jeremiah 33:3

To President Obama; An Open Rebuke

An Open Rebuke And Admonition To President Barack Obama,

Mr. President,

This is my written attempt to get over to you that those of us who worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, are appalled at this.

When it comes to politics, we know that compromise is the rule but when it comes to prayer, we, who serve the Lord Jesus Christ, cannot, and we will not compromise.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I rebuke you Mr. President.

For a little background, please click this link and then return to this blog.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/11/obama-asks-for-prayer-on-budget-deal/

The election is over and we know that you are the president of the United States for four more years. The office of the presidency carries world wide prestige and responsibility. Already, you have made it clear that you would lead all of the American people. At least, that’s what you have said.

So far, we of the Christian faith have been left to the sidelines with your acceptance and endorsement of the LGBT community, same sex marriage, and Planned Abortionhood.

Sadly, evangelicals are so confused that there is no real consensus of faith and we are in disarray. So much so that our leaders are dumping the Word of God for political gain. But the remnant of the Christian faith hold fast to the Word of God, and we will never deny the Lord.

Otherwise, the Lord Jesus will deny us before the Father.

Mr. President, as long as you twist the Word for your own purposes, we of the truth will stand ready, willing, and able to point out to you and anyone else that desire to abuse and manipulate the Scriptures, the truth of the Word.

And I am not careful to not rebuke you, Mr. President.

Proverbs 27:5 says, “Open rebuke is better than love that is hidden.”

To seek the help of the prayers of the other gods in addition to seeking the prayers of the saints that serve the Most High God, is blasphemous.

For too long, many of those that profess to follow Jesus, have chosen to remain silent. But history has showed that the Word of the Lord must be issued to all who dare proceed on a path to worship, pray, and serve other gods. Especially those that profess to be followers of Jesus.

To be ashamed of the Lord Jesus Christ can be overcome. It takes courage to stay from places that openly goes against the only Lord of heaven and earth. There aren’t many ways to God. For the Bible is clear that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to the Father but by Jesus. That neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved (see John 14:6 and Acts 4:12).

This act, captured on film, provokes the Most High God.

Biblical history has showed that those that refuse to seek the Lord alone, never get out of the situation they are in.

When king Asa decided to use the Syrians to block Israel, the Lord sent word to the prophet to speak to king Asa…

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong in the behalf of those who’s heart is loyal toward Him.”

The Word is clear in the NT that we are to pray to the Father, in the name of Jesus. He is the true and living God, and you know it.

The world knows that Jesus is Lord, and you know it. Or perhaps, you do not know it and you might be able to claim ignorance. But your competence and intelligence reveals that you are knowledgable.

You and this country is facing a very serious situation and only the God of heaven can help. It is remarkably stunning that you run the risk of seeking the gods that have no power to save the United States from the financial brink and to solicit their prayers. It is clear that this continuation of looking the other way by you, Mr. President, is a consistent pattern that further indicates that the God of heaven and earth is not the God you claim to be serving.

We who stand as children of the Most High God, will never compromise the Word of God. We will never deny the Lord Jesus Christ. We know that politics is a very dangerous game. So dangerous, that if this is the only available resort for the people of the United States, that government is god, that eventually, this god must be destroyed.

To provoke the God of heaven and earth is even a more dangerous thing.

Therefore, Mr. President, we will continue to hold you up in prayer according to 1 Timothy 2:1-2. We will continue to seek the true God of heaven and earth on your behalf, to turn your heart to be saved and to serve Him fully. To love The Lord, your God, with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.

We who seek the Lord, the Most High God, will forever stand for the truth, no matter the cost.

Thank you for your time, Mr. President.

 

African Americans No Longer Falter Between Opinions. Baal Is God, AA’s Will Follow him

Dr. Michael Brown issued a stunning article addressed to African American evangelical pastors http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/34548-an-open-letter-to-my-black-evangelical-friends regarding the election. As you have noted, 95% of African Americans, of the 12% African American population voted again for Barack Obama to assume the presidency for a second term.

I am aware that the title is stunning but according to Easton’s Bible Dictionary, the god called Baal is connected to Molech according to Jeremiah 19:5. Molech is the Canaanite god to whom children are sacrificed in the valley of Hinnom, Gehenna or Tophet, passing the children alive through fire. This is out of womb abortion.

Quoting from his dictionary….

“Topheth, from Heb. toph “a drum,” because the cries of children here sacrificed by the priests of Moloch were drowned by the noise of such an instrument;”

Beating the drums loudly is to make the worship of Molech/Baal tolerable.

So when you see the protests for choice, they will not reason with you, they will drown you out by talking over you.

It’s a conclusive reminder of the impotent, almost non existent Black church leadership in the African American community.

When your pastor starts off by saying, “I do not support the president’s position on same sex marriages and abortion but I will vote for him anyway,” it’s an endorsement of the president’s position when you vote for him. The softening of the blow is hypocrisy.

And you know it.

We all know about the president’s support and advocation of same sex marriage, namely the sin of homosexuality and the unequivocal support of abortion on demand. It is clear that African Americans are versed on the issues but will vote Democratic no matter what.

Would you please wake up and smell something?

It’s like a deer in headlights. It’s like knowing that in front of you is a glass of clorox. It looks like water, a little bit. But you can smell that it is not water. But you drink it anyway. It’s like a bus sitting on the edge of a cliff with a sign saying, “Bus To The Bottom Of The Cliff.”

You take a look at the bottom of the cliff and you see several buses with bodies everywhere and you still get on the last bus. Excited about the ride, you get on board. Right on schedule, the bus makes its move right over the cliff.

In the 11th chapter of the book of Romans, you could hear Paul’s anguish for his fellow Jews for rejecting the gospel.

A Barna Group polled that of the 12% African Americans that populate the United States, roughly 6% attend church.

But just because 6% show up to attend church, it doesn’t mean that they are in the church. There is an immense difference. Just by looking at this statistic, it is clear that a large portion of professed church attendees voted for the president twice.

The excuses to vote for the president range from…“He is a black man,” to “We are electing a president, not a pastor.”

I’ve read of one article from a FB link of a church (I will verify it) turning away children to have a pastor that is a convicted pedophile pastor to lead their church. There are many pastors that have sexual issues but folk do not care. I’ve already shared a blog about a married pastor with three kids infecting several women in his church with HIV/AIDS. He was arrested.

Some of you reading this will say that these are isolated incidences. But look at the amount of homosexual and sexually promiscuous music ministers that play in our churches. Look at the bisexual pastors in large and small churches. Look at the sexual serial predators in the pulpit. Look at the hidden lives of pastors and ministers of watching porn and masturbating. Look at the sexual immoral women that snare pastors and church leaders. Look at the Jezebels that show up to destroy local churches and destroy a pastor’s wife.

Look at the sexual immorality among teens in the church. Look at the pregnancies that occur of teenage girls in our churches. How soon we forget that many pastors are asked to dedicate their babies, born out of wedlock. Illegitimate children born because of fornication and adultery. Sadly, many children were aborted, never to see the light of day on this side of heaven.

We have a serious issue that sounds off a very high pitched, ear busting signal that we are out of control, and we are far from walking holy as we should be. Many African American males have went rogue, gravitating to the sin of homosexuality that leaves many African American available single women waiting longer for a mate. A clean mate.

At a home-going service, a pastor eulogized one of his deacons and said that we are not to judge his past.

At the viewing, the deacon’s girl friend showed up. They were fornicating.

We all know that this is common in almost every state. But there is an alarming trend here.

“Who are we really worshipping?”

Elijah was on assignment to deal with the perversion of his day. The nation of Israel was being judged. There was famine resulting from a drought imposed by God for the sins of Israel. Ahab did worse to provoke the Lord and he also married Jezebel. Her father, Ethbaal, was the leader of the Sidonians. Ethbaal came to power by way of assassinating his rival. Ahab looked for a wife outside of Israel and came across the epitome of demon power operating in women. Her name was Jezebel. Her name indicates that she refuses to place herself under male leadership.

Jezebel killed any prophet of God. Obadiah hid 100 prophets of the Lord, 50 in a cave, and gave them bread and water. But Elijah operated in the open. When it was time to confront the prophets of Baal, 450 of them, a question was asked.

“How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him, but if Baal, follow him.”

What does this have to do with this? Just giving you a little backdrop.

Baal has been served for a long time. And the Lord used Elijah in, perhaps, the most powerful display of God’s power since Moses.

On a heavily watered altar, after Elijah prayed, the Lord answered by fire, and all of Israel fell on their faces, in acknowledgement of the Lord God.

The fire of the Lord ended the debate.

Elijah took it a step further and slaughtered all the false prophets of Baal. 450 of them.

It is safe to say that this was a one time incident that we will never see or hear of ever again.

But the debate of our times continues.

WHAT DEBATE?

There is no debate when it comes to sin. NONE!

But people in the church debate sin because they do not desire freedom from sin. People in the church have made captains and have returned to the house of bondage called Egypt. It takes work to stay away from sin. It is easier to tolerate sin. No opposition from the world and sympathetic carnal Christians will always side in with having a mixture of sin and righteousness (2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

That’s why it is easy for the LGBT agenda to flourish and grow rather well without major opposition. LGBT can count on the African American church leaders to argue among themselves and oppose righteous African American pastors. LGBT can also count on 95% of the African Americans to ensure that their agenda continues to follow in the footsteps of Civil Rights, underwritten by the NAACP.

There are many pastors and people in the church that falter, not just between two opinions, but with so many humanistically driven, Bible-less opinions. So much so that there is no real consensus among African American church attendees and pastors. There are many pastors, who have political aspirations, that are pulled between their pulpits and making a “difference” in the communities on the political level.

The thirst for power to influence spiritually and politically, are sick bedfellows if the only purpose is to purport sin.

But what is really needed is not a single voice on the level of MLK. What is needed is for each pastor returning to the basics of their sanctified calling and assignment from God.

The spectacular orations and TV cameras, and the unwise, ungodly pursuit of “greatness” has clouded a pastor’s ability to just hear from God and speak, and live the Word of God. We are caught up in just the “showmanship” of pulpiteers that we are completely oblivious to what is happening in people’s lives that when sin comes into the house of the Lord, sin is comfortable.

Getting the Holy Ghost goosebumps, and cutting the rug is the preferred norm for African American churches that to talk about living holy is an outdated message.

Do not misunderstand me because there are some places that take seriously the living and preaching of the Holy Word of God. There are some pastors that take no prisoners. There is still some places where the pastor still has an altar call. There is still some places where the heart is sought above everything else, to turn to the Lord. There is still some places where the church is the place where people come to get their sins washed away by the blood of the Lamb. But they must also be taught how to have total victory over sin. They are to be taught how to wash their lives with the water of the Word. They are to be taught by example to walk in the power of God for the dark days that we are living in today.

It is clear that in many churches, Baal is god in the local church. Idol worship, covetousness, sexual immorality, and perversion is normal in the lives of people.

So the conclusion of the matter is simple.

REPENT!!!!!

Because if sin is comfortable in your life and in the church, the devil is preaching real good.

Extramarital Affair; The Patraeus Sex Scandal

There is a serious use of coded language. Extramarital.

However, the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) deems adultery as an offense unbecoming of those in the military.

In particular, for officers.

With all the news about the former CIA Director, retired General Patraeus, I just want to zero in on the power of urges and impulses.

To get to the bottom of this, from a man’s perspective, the lusts of the flesh is what drives men and women to engage in adultery. From the world’s perspective and even from church leaders (your’s truly included), there is always a line to cross.

When you are involved in the lusts of the flesh, you will always cross that line that you said you would never cross.

It’s just a matter of time if repentance from all Secret Sexual Sins does not take place.

Hidden in the lives of men is the world of fantasy that eventually turns into reality. That’s why porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation, is always at the foundation of male sexual immorality. Sooner or later, the “pretend sex” shifts to real sex with another person of the opposite or same sex. This is not to say that there is factual evidence that the former Director has sexual addiction issues.

As I was doing my studies on Healthy Sexuality, I came across an article from the military in 2009 that soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan regularly viewed porn and masturbated to relieve the tension associated with the battlefield. Over in the Arab world, and I never served on the ground in theater while I was in service prior to Gulf War 1 and 2, the red light district is there but you had to be very careful.

I am not suggesting that the former General may have had a sexual rendezvous with his biographer. But it is conceivable and possible that means and methods made available by high ranking military men can set a time and place of their choosing to set up booty call anywhere in the world.

For the average soldier to engage in prostitution and other forms of “hooking up” with the opposite sex, is very tricky because of the customs and other difficulties to gain access to women in the Middle East. Couple that with restrictions imposed by senior commanders so as not to offend the host nations that may interfere with alliance issues and the difficulties for sex, fornication, and adultery are immense. Now, I may be wrong about this because I am not familiar with these areas. But based on the General’s access, we see that he may have had no problem if he wanted to cross the line. But when you have an American woman, other than your wife in theater, there is no problem.

Also, at anytime, Generals could set up a place to rendezvous with their wives well out of the theater of operations.

Now here is the problem. It was after Patraeus became CIA Director when the adultery occurred.

I’m attempting to address two issues because they are looking to see if the former Director had an affair prior to his retirement while he was in command. The lady in question had exclusive, unfettered access, so anything is possible.

If so, could the former General be charged under the UCMJ?

The jury is out on this, so stay tuned.

But the underlying issue of “urges and impulses” always reveal the drive behind all sexual encounters.

While we will never know if there was a porn/masturbation problem with the former Director, we know that if you are having issues at home, adultery swirls in the atmosphere. If you are not having problems at home but one thing leads to another, it’s because the lusts of the flesh, the lusts of the eyes, and the pride of life is driving a man’s urges and impulses.

Being back home from the battlefield really helps because you are at home with your wife.

But the former Director, for whatever reason, decided to cross the line.

While at home.

Proverbs 6:32 says…..

“Whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding (lacks a heart of moral character). He who does so destroys his own soul.”

The former Director from courage, spoke volumes of truth of his own lack of judgment. But he didn’t call it adultery. He called it an “extramarital affair.”

Extra sex outside of marriage is commonly and Biblically called adultery.

There’s always two sides to every story. Two married persons decided to cheat on their spouses.

But look at the Bible. Through the Word of God, we see men and women committing adultery, fornication, and homosexuality (Sodom and Gomorrah).

The woman that met Jesus at Jacob’s well was an adulteress (see John 4). She had five husbands, and was committing adultery with a sixth man, and Jesus revealed her heart. But Jesus didn’t condemn her. He pointed her to the true worship of God to point her towards true intimacy with God.

Sexual immorality never satisfies. It is the water that men and women will thirst for again and again. But the water that Jesus gives will satisfy forever. Thirsty souls that engage in adultery, fornication, bisexuality, homosexuality, and lesbianism are seeking only one thing.

True, lasting intimacy with the living God.

Sexual orgasm is nothing compared to fellowshipping with the living God. When you are looking for pleasure in the natural, the soul and flesh is never satisfied. The woman at Jacob’s well had six men. The mind and flesh is like a horse that sees the carrot on the stick and never gets a bite of it. As a result, the horse continues to trot because it lives in expectations unfulfilled.

When it comes to adultery, women look for connections. This may or may not be true for this situation, but perhaps, if they are married, their husbands and wives are underachievers in life and sexually inadequate in the bedroom. She doesn’t feel connected for whatever reason. Perhaps, her husband cheated and she turns the table on him. But a man in uniform comes along. Very successful. Very powerful. Very strong in leadership. She gravitates towards a powerful man, towards what her husband may never be. One thing leads to another and they are off to the bedroom races. For the man in uniform, perhaps, the lust in his heart completely overshadows his marriage vows. Her youthful looks and conversations with either his prize or his prey, starts the juices flowing.

Like the book of Proverbs says, “Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks. Till an arrow struck his liver, as a bird hastens to the snare, he did not know it would cost him his life.”

For the woman caught in adultery, perhaps, we will never know if she would use the same words of the former Director, that his lack of judgment brought about an unnecessary situation.

Notice Proverbs 30:20….

“This is the way of an adulterous woman: she eats and wipes her mouth, and says, “I have done no wickedness.”

I am not saying that this is the expressed attitude of the woman that committed adultery with Patraeus, but predominantly, the world does not consider adultery a big deal. It happens all the time.

Does the church, which is full of adulterers, fornicators, bisexuals, and homosexuals have a right to say anything at all in its hypocrisy? Just because there are such people in church leadership (pastors, bishops, priests, and other leaders) that commit the same sins as the world does, it doesn’t mean that the standard of the Word of God has failed and is no longer applicable for today.

Hebrews 13:4 says…..

“Marriage is honorable among all and the bed undefiled (unsoiled), but adulterers and fornicators God will judge.”

1 Corinthians 6:9 says….

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators (Greek word, pornos)…nor adulterers….will inherit the kingdom of God.”

But thanks be to God it doesn’t end there. God is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and full of grace and compassion.

The Lord Jesus knows how to deliver people from their destructive lives and bring peace in the middle of the storm.

While we do not know what the outcome will be with the former Director’s marriage, the breach in the relationship has caused much damage.

But the best place to start is to repent of sin and establish a relationship with the Lord Jesus.

Unless the spiritual breach is repaired, perhaps, their marriage may be repaired but it will all be for nothing if the Lord Jesus is not in the relationship.

It is true but few in between that repairing marriages for couples not in Christ can and will take place. It is just as bad for couples in Christ because of the hardness of hearts.

An irreconcilable difference is a difference that couples choose not to reconcile.

Adultery is a clear betrayal of trust but the Lord has a way to reestablish trust.

There is much painstaking work to be done, but it begins with the couple that must be willing to take the necessary steps together to find common ground to rebuild the broken relationship.

For some, it’s too tough a hill to climb and walking away in divorce is their unfortunate conclusion to achieve closure.

It takes courage, faith, patience, time, effort, and a willingness to reestablish the bond. Something that cannot be rushed. Mrs. Patraeus deserves time and patience. It is the most devastating thing that could happen to a wife. And she must have the time and space to deal with her husband’s despicable act of adultery.

We trust that they will be able to reconcile.

For the woman caught in adultery, while folk want to drag her into the mud, she is entitled to the grace of God just like everyone else. A serious breach took place and she needs the Lord as well. Many will condemn her but who are we to do so? The only thing that we can do is point out the sin but also point her to the Savior. Just like the woman at Jacob’s well, she need a drink of living water.

Repentance, forgiveness, reconciliation, righteousness, and holiness.

All these things are achievable in Christ.

The Christian Conservative Vote: The No Vote That Determined The Election

When George W. Bush won the 2004 election, the Christian Conservative vote took him into his second term over Senator John Kerry. Carl Rove made sure that the conservative base in Ohio carried the vote.

It is documented that the conservative vote was present and accounted for.

This time, the conservative Christian vote was noticeably absent.

Never before have we seen a Mormon cater to evangelicals. And Romney did make an attempt. But it failed and everyone knows it. They’ve tried to get Governor Huckabee and Reverend Billy Graham to back and support Romney.

And that failed, miserably.

Sadly, there were many evangelicals and Christian conservatives that suppressed the basic Bible belief of true Christians to vote for Governor Romney. It is also clear that most Christians intentionally and deliberately disregarded the facts behind President Obama and voted for the re-election of a president that advocates the sins of abortion and homosexuality.

It is true that many people are upset that the president was re-elected and Romney was soundly rejected. But this rejection isn’t as obvious because the popular vote still shows a split down the middle of America. On the Democratic side, we know that there are many people that profess their belief in Christ but they’ve pushed aside the Word of God.

They will not admit a compromise took place but there is no doubt about it. They’ve clearly compromised the Word of God in their hearts and joined themselves to the sins of this nation. I am speaking of those that deliberately and intentionally knew the facts about each of their candidates and voted for either candidate.

The outcome of the election came about…..

partly because some of the professed believers are not living holy and separated lives unto the Lord. They resist the counsel of God’s Word, and they live like the world in thinking and deeds. They can quickly tell you their favorite shows but when it comes to basics of Christianity and the Bible, it is found lacking in fervency and intense fire.

Partly because some of the professed believers are living godly lives and they were led to believe that patriotic duty must transcend solid Christian beliefs. Or that Christian beliefs are to directly influence American politics. These people that voted for Romney have good hearts, and they mean well because they want to see the country move back into a conservative course.

Kevin, my brother in the Lord and friend from Connecticut said this….

“You are right about the choices we faced. It was like satan (obama) versus satan lite (Romney). It sickened me that so many Christians caved into Romney. There was no need to be SO enthusiastic about him. I had no problem with a Christian voting Romney (I did) —- but I could not be RAH RAH STRIKE UP THE BAND FOR HIM.”

It does take courage to make a stand these days and I think this election exposed a deep rift that is split right down the middle about America but there is that one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb.

The “No” vote.

Let’s just say that the Christians that deliberately and intentionally purposed not to vote because the Biblical standard brought about a conviction that should we stand before the Master, we would have to render an account. The no vote of Christians truly affected this outcome.

This is no time to exalt or smile that the no votes” didn’t vote. It should be a humble reminder to us all that the devil is very crafty and will take anything he can get to turn it to his evil advantage. The choice not to vote doesn’t sit well with many. The choice to be vocal about not voting for the president didn’t sit well with African Americans.

If you were African American and Democratic, you were expected to vote for the president. Many African Americans hated the fact that independent thinking African Americans wouldn’t cave in to the pressure from supportive Democratic African Americans.

However, let me be clear.

I am a child of God before I am an African American. The Lordship of Jesus takes precedence over patriotism, denominationalism, and political party affiliation.

Many African Americans are not patriotic but when it comes to seeing a Black man assume the presidency, it is expected that the political support be there no matter what the president believes, disbelieves, or what wicked agenda he supports. It’s because we all know that in this rare moment in history, a Black man was able to ascend to become the most powerful man in the world.

Once again, my friend Kevin, from Connecticut shared these words……

“Thank you pastor Fred! It’s so nice to see an American who is black — not give into the Obama worship.”

And this statement is something that hits the ball out of the park. We must worship Jesus, not man.

From a political sense, voting for this Black man doesn’t make sense because in all actuality, the odds were clearly stacked against him, but he won against Hillary Clinton, and twice against powerful Republican candidates. John McCain, a decorated POW hero, and Mitt Romney.

These stunning victories is huge.

But I couldn’t get past what the president stood for and no “faithstatements would be enough to compel me to take a chance and suppress the Word of God and vote for a candidate that wholeheartedly and unapologetically supports the heinous, and disgusting sins of homosexuality and abortion.

The interesting thing that you will hear from African Americans that support the president is that when it comes to presenting the facts, many of them do not care. Many will say that they did not vote because of skin. Many of them will say that because they do not want to tell the truth.

Let’s face it. He is Black.

Let’s face it, it is normal to look at a person of color and gravitate towards that person.

Even when the facts are laid on the table, there is no question about what will take place.

But here is another thing of interest.

Whites are still the majority in the United States. But they didn’t vote a Black man out.

To be honest, we all know that the race for the White House was not about one White man against one Black man. It was about the economy but noticeably and notoriously missing was the two major issues of our times.

Abortion and The Sin of homosexuality.

Both candidates elected to make statements in the media and kept clear of this well traveled minefield.

But it really didn’t matter.

The icing on the cake is the fact that some Christians bypassed this critical aspect that Romney is a Mormon.

For good measure, Kevin, shared these powerful words…

“Mormonism is a cult. Mormonism plagued my family for 40 years. My grandparents were mormons (dad’s side). My dad was a mormon for a brief time. Grandparents left, but my aunt is still a mormon (35 years running) I was sickened when Bill Graham’s evangelistic association removed Mormonism as a cult from their website — 3 weeks before the election!! How many millions were given to Samaritan’s Purse because of that?”

This is a game changer that to suppress the basic belief of Christ to vote in a Mormon to somehow, steer America back to conservative Christian values is beyond reasonable comprehension.

Hence the reason for the no vote.

What happened was theno vote” chose not to side in with either candidate because of the president’s and Romney’s support of the sin of homosexuality, and the president’s support for the sin of abortion to cover for the sin of adultery and fornication.

The media made it seem like the issue is about the economy but underlying, the issues turned out to be about sin. Three states joined the band wagon of same sex marriage, and Washington State and Colorado decriminalized marijuana use for medical purposes, in addition to Californication imposing the use of condoms on porn sets to protect porn stars from acquiring STDs including HIV/AIDS.

Paul told Timothy… “nor share in other people’s sins, keep yourself pure.”

That’s what the conservative Christians did. They, like myself, refused to join in and share in other people’s sin, to keep ourselves pure.

Love for God transcends love for country. We seek a better country wherein righteousness dwells.

The direction of this country is at stake but like I said, are we found fighting against the inevitable course of the last days? I do not believe that we should give up on America. However, I do believe that as time progresses, the spiritual climate will continue to deteriorate. Defections from the Lord will increase, apostates and apostasy will increase, and persecution will exponentially rise.

As Jesus said….“The love of many will grow cold.”

Notice that He didn’t distinguish between the righteous and the wicked. For there are many that profess Christ whose love for the brethren is cold, and getting colder.

So if you were one who is second guessing your “no vote,” just remember that the world is on a collision course towards the culmination of all things. Just know that the Lord is not surprised about the outcome, and do not let the world, and well intentioned professed believers discourage you. You were led not to vote. Just look at what may have happened. The Lord is not blind to what happened. This is not a lesser than the two evils situation. It is evil. All evil.

Go back to Jeremiah 17:5-10 and rest confident in the faithfulness of the Lord. Trust also in Him and He will bring His will to pass.

The Failed Attempt To Americanize Christ And Christianity

The presidential election was a disappointment to many Christians. Because the Republican party failed to get into the White House, the wounds of this loss will be felt for a long time. We all know that President Barack Obama has set the nation on a course that is crosswise of the Word of God. We all know his history as a professed believer” fails, big time, of the essentials of what makes a person a genuine, authentic child of God.

It wasn’t so much the president that set the course alone, but rather those that have his ear. Coupled with his version of “faith” and those that “have a form of godliness,” denying its power, we see that this perilous course will continue.

Welcome to the last days.

This is the agenda from here on out.

Protect the right to choose abortion and push, from the executive branch, the sin of homosexuality and other forms of immorality.

As the late Pastor John Osteen, father of Joel Osteen over 30 years ago once said….

“We must have the power of God for the dark days that lie ahead.”

You think?

The economy is being judged and as a result, at any moment, when there is no real solutions to reduce the government’s debt, accept to raise the credit limit, increase taxes, and increase the age of retirement for new hires, grid lock politics between the two parties, and the potential to select possibly two new supreme court justices of the liberal brand, this country could experience a serious collapse.

But is it that serious? 16 trillion dollar deficit and climbing and the high cost of living is a serious threat to this nation.

Consistent with the end times, we are seeing a funneling of economic policies towards a one world system monetarily. While the evidence is still lacking, we really do not see apocalyptic set ups just yet. But when you really do not know how all of this will play itself out, we must heed the admonition of Jesus. Be ready.

The character of a nation is defined by its moral fiber or lack thereof. The “moral” thing to do is to change the definition of morality to that which is “immoral.” See Isaiah 5:20-21.

But one thing is certain. The president’s explanation” of justifying the sins of abortion and homosexuality falls tremendously short of true Biblical values.

If you look at the Republican presidential candidates, we see that many had placed their hopes in someone that is a practicing Mormon.

Just go to their website mormon.org to read what they believe.

When you get to the Mormon page, you will see a picture of Jesus and we do not need reminders of what others “think” of what Jesus looked like. I do not accept pictures of the Lord Jesus because the person putting up these pictures really take away from the Bible’s description. Fixated in our memory are good looking men that does a disservice. In fact, I call it idolatry because none except those that walked with Him, knew what He looked like.

So, please save us all the trouble and get rid of all these pictures. Black. White. All of these pictures are intentionally and deliberately misleading.

Anyway, for the most part, the conservatives on Charisma and other evangelicals thought that by overlooking what Mormons believe, we could some how, backdoor conservative values into the White House to stop the Democratic agenda of abortion and the sin of homosexuality. To check the spead of spiritual erosion.

The 40 Days of Prayer reported in Charisma Magazine reminded me of when there is trouble in the land, break out the good ol’ dependable in battle, Ark of the Covenant. Hophni and Phinehas were priests of sexual perversion. Sons of Belial. Eli, the high priest was overweight and going blind (doesn’t that sound like the prominent preachers of our day and the church) failed to discipline and kill his sons. The Israelites lost the battle against the Philistines twice and Ichabod became the epitaph of Israel. Phinehas’ wife named her child that name and died at child birth. Her husband committed adultery for a long time and they paid with their lives.

Christian conservatives all are wrong, or at the very lease misguided about abortion. Abortion is a solution of demonic proportions. But we have failed to address Secret Sexual Sins. We have failed to address, from the Bible, the evil sins of adultery and fornication. These sins went untouched.

We protest so much against abortion that the cause for pregnancy is completely overlooked.

When was the last time you heard on the anti abortion platform the call to abstain from fornication and adultery?

98% of all abortions are unintended pregnancies. But how did these pregnancies come to be?

Fornication and adultery.

We conservative Christians thought that if we would be outraged about abortion that America would return to Christian values. At the same time, because we thought that when we protest against abortion, and stop the murdering of innocent children, perhaps America would come to its senses. But we see that the world is entrenched in abortion because the world is entrenched in the sin of adultery and fornication.

And this is not to say that if we address the sins of fornication and adultery, abortion would stop.

The church has stuff going on that makes what the world do seem like child’s play.

The disappointment that you all feel as conservative values Christians is in the failure to clean the inside of the bowl first.

Our hypocritical walk before the world is deafening the ears of the world. You can’t argue with professional sinners. They know a sinning child of God when they see one. You can fool yourself, but you can’t fool the ones that watch you walk into their bar for a drink and some booty.

Our loud preaching is followed by our loud hypocrisy.

Sex And The City?

Sex And The Church!

We know that behind the scenes lurk an evil agenda to plunge America further into darkness.

And then the Lord said to me…“They are Americanizing Christianity.”

That’s where the problem is.

For years, we have been saying that Americans were founded on Judao-Christian values as established by the forefathers of this nation. That the founding fathers were Christians. But we sort of side step the fact that some of these guys, including George Washington were Freemasons.

Secret societies that we know is connected to demon power.

We are so proud of our culture as free people that our own freedoms has ensnared the people.

The freedom of free speech has been hijacked. Here is an example.

In prisons across America, the first amendment allows prisoners to have pinups. Just in case some of you all do not know what a pin up is. It is a sex picture. And there is only one purpose. When you are a prisoner, and you can’t have women, except in certain places that allow for conjugal visits, the pin up is a sexual image that men use to gratify themselves. Eventually, they go from fantasy to homosexuality in the prison system. This is a subject but it is related.

Sexual immorality has been interpreted as free speech and this sin is protected, knowing full well that “the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. Who can know it?”

These obscenity laws were tested on prime time national TV when NYPD Blue came out. The fixation of soft porn at 10 PM became the standard and they almost got away with it. But the movie houses are filled with soft porn. The new Denzel Washington picture “Flight,” is an example of soft porn. I did not see the movie and I do not intend to, but just to know that soft porn is the norm on the movie set is a clear example of the media teaching the world about the acceptance and normalization of the perversion of sexuality.

Even on national TV, the acceptance as normal of the sin of homosexuality in sitcoms, is indoctrinating the people on the “vile passions” of MSM and FSF. But there is nothing great about HIV/AIDS and other STDs that manifests as a direct result of Secret Sexual Sins.

The point is clear. We must stop trying to fit Christ into the culture of Americanism. Jesus is not an American.

Jesus is Lord.

The culture of America is not Christian. The culture of America is freedom to do as one pleases apart from God. While many will say that the founding fathers were Christians, and there may not be much to dispute it, I find it very hard for a person that claims Jesus as Lord to be bedfellows of secret societies attached to their obituary. It’s a bed of spiritual orgies of epic proportions.

We have been beguiled into thinking that we could some how “return” to what we think is Christianity by Americanizing it. And that is not the way to go. We are to make disciple of every nation. In other words, let God use His people to present the gospel to a person living in America.

The ideals and culture of a nation is bent on perversion and sin. We must drop the notion of trying to change the landscape, leased by the devil. The god of this world is not going to let you usurp what is temporarily in his hands.

The earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof. The church is on enemy territory until the complete redemption of Christ occurs.

Let’s be found doing what we are called to do. Make disciples, not remake a nation.

There is strong disagreement. People honestly believe that the entire nation would turn. Look outside your window, spiritually. The decline has continued. Revival in Nineveh can happen, but with all places that turn away from God afterwards, they returned to their vomit, never to recover. The days of America have already been numbered. The grace of God may have extended it. More like mercy to me.

Matthew 24 tells us plainly of these things that the decline of nations must take place.

Welcome to the last days.

The Day After Election Day; What Was Really Accomplished?

A lot of heads are hanging. Some have even shed tears about the future of this nation.

But in many states, jubilation.

The one thing that struck me is that when sin is permitted, and there is jubilation over the righteous, it is an ominous sign that these are the last days.

So, what was really accomplished?

Many that professed to believe in Christ went crosswise of the Word and suppressed the truth to vote for Barack Obama or for Mitt Romney.

Sadly, many that voted against the president were disappointed.

Many evangelicals thought that by voting for Mitt Romney, a devote Mormon, sort of, kind of endorsed by Reverend Billy Graham, that America would see some of the things enacted by President Obama reversed. While the election count was not a mandate in the popular vote, the Electoral College vote makes it seems like there is a mandate on the Democratic agenda.

If you take a good look, this election wasn’t just about the re-election of President Barack Obama.

Behind the scenes, we have seen three states affirm gay marriage, marijuana legalized, and condoms to be used on porn sets to protect against STDs and HIV/AIDS. It’s not an opinion. It is a fact that all condom use circumvents the consequential judgment attached to the sin of fornication and adultery. The secondary use of condoms is to prevent conception, thus fostering the climate for sexual perversion.

Note what the Lord Jesus said about adultery and fornication in Matthew 17:19,

“For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.”

This is the same Jesus that the world seeks to worship but stay in sin. This is the same Jesus that the world wants the church to be like. But the way the world wants the church to be like is completely different from what Jesus said in His Word what His church is to be like.

I think it was Ghandi that said, “We do not have a problem with Christ. We have a problem with you Christians.”

If we who believe in Christ is adhering to the teaching of Christ in following the Word of God about deliverance from sin and living holy lives, then it is not we that is the problem.

It is you.

We cannot help but testify of the overcoming power of the blood of Jesus and the deliverance from the power and guilt of sin.

Besides, the world can’t tell believers how we are to be like.

John 1:12 says, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:”

To believe on His name is confirmed when you do what He says.

For the Lord Jesus said, in Matthew 7:21-23…..

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? ’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!”

John further confirms a true adherent of the Lord when he said this in 1 John 5:3…..

“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments; and his commandments are not grievous.”

The church has “One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism. One God, and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”

But the Father is not the Father of sinners. The devil is the father of all sinners.

Notice what Paul said in Ephesians 2:2-3….

“…in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.”</strong>

So their spiritual nature dictates what the mind and flesh does, in obedience to the spirit that works in the children of disobedience.

This is also called “the law of sin and death” (see Romans 8:1-2).

The world wants the church to be tolerant of sin. In what the Lord Jesus said, there is no tolerance of sin. In what the Lord said here, He identifies the source of all sin.

The heart.

Notice what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10……

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”

This is just to remind all who intend to sin that the world doesn’t own God. And the world doesn’t own the child of God. And the world doesn’t have a right to dictate to the true believers of the Lord Jesus Christ what we are to believe, how we are to believe, and to keep silence.

On the contrary, we will continue to shout it from the house tops. We will not flinch nor fail in our responsibility of living and preaching the unadulterated gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. And we will not speak in hatred. We will not act unbecoming of a child of God. We do not hate sinners. We do not despise the unrighteous.

Our fight is against those that stand against against the truth. No matter what practicing homosexual or lesbian groups have in store in terms of their agenda. No matter those that affirm or assent to the sins of fornication, adultery, and bisexuality. We know the source of these vile passions. They are demonically and diabolically inspired.

Therefore, we hate the devil and his demons. We hate the evil one. We hate the devil with perfect hatred.

Paul said, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, and against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenly places.”

This is a spiritual warfare that requires that the church, under the direction of the Head of the Church to wage with the weapons of our warfare which are mighty in God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down reasonings and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.

You can write up all the laws for sin you want. We are in the last days and the Lord already set in motion the end of it all. The world has no control over the throne of God, and they, sure enough, do not have control over the God who sits upon the throne.

MIGHTY IS OUR GOD!

At His own time and choosing, He will bring this all to an end.

So for those that are still trying to make sense of this past election, just know that the Lord was never caught off guard.

The events that are present, and before us must surely come to pass.

Remember. These are the days of Noah and Lot. We all know what happened in those days. Just read Luke 17. We know that the church will continue to lose its influence because we live and love sin so much more than the Lord.

Yet, there is a remnant that will not bow their knee to Baal, or the devil.

We will not let man dictate to the church what the church is to do or believe. The world doesn’t dictate to the Head of the Church. Now, mind you that the world and the devil would love to get rid of the church. That can’t happen because the devil can’t do anything about the true believers in the church. He can only sit there and watch like a spoiled brat.

I remember that I am the Lord’s child before I am an American, and before I am a Black man.

As a born again child of God, my future in Christ is eternally secure. So my head never hung after the election count came in. While watching the election, there was no doubt about the outcome. When you have inside information from the throne of God, you never sigh.

That’s why I love the Lord and keep His commandments. I am a doer of the Word and not a hearer only.

As far as the rest of the church that is straddling the fence,they love to sound like they are so close to the Lord but when you look at what is really going on in your life, your testimony may be shallow at best. People cannot actually discern the difference of Christ in your life. The way you talk, text, watch TV, speak crudely and cruelly. There is no love for the brothers and sisters in the Lord.

The spirit of apostasy will take out more “so called” saints. They will walk away from the Lord because they do not know how to endure to the end. They will contend with the Bible and the true saints of God. They will reason their way over the Word to continue in sin. They are on the fumes of grace. Some are on the fumes of mercy. Many, sadly, are living like the foolish virgins. Spending all their money on other things and like before, they will look to bum oil for their lamps off the wise virgins.

But I got news for you. You’ve bummed oil for the last time.

For the true church, let’s get back to being busy for the Lord. We’ve worried too much about America, not realizing that America is just a country that we believers in Christ occupy temporarily. We must remember that the course is set and there is nothing that we could do to alter what must come to pass.

We must remember that we are ambassadors for the Lord. The local church is His embassy. We are here, journeying through. While we are on this journey, we try to win as many as we can to the Lord, for physical death, should Christ tarry, is inevitable. The judgment soon to follow.

We must remember that when we are trying to save a nation, we must ask a the question….“Why?”

Isn’t the task before us to make disciples from these nations?Have we forgotten the first and only job of the church is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the power of God unto salvation. We have taken a page out of the apostles in asking Jesus if He is going to establish a kingdom and pull the Jews out from Roman dominance. In all actually, the Christians are looking to change the politics so that we can have our bed of ease and not confront the sin in and outside the church.

My… have we forgotten Daniel’s prophesy about the last empire and the everlasting empire that cannot and will not ever be destroyed?

If we really look at it. Are we trying to prevent what must come to pass or are we putting patriotism over Christianity? Are we directly interfering with the etched in eternity plan of God for America? Like Nineveh, perhaps we might repent like Nineveh. They repented. The whole nation in sackcloth and ashes, with fasting, but they were eventually destroyed. Or are we trying to save our culture from the inevitable? It’s the same with the prosperity message. Are we duping ourselves into thinking that the economic events of our times is just for a short season or is it judgment on the monetary system because of covetousness?

Then when you really look at it, why is the church so impotent when given the opportunity to be a solid testimony to the world, and our modern day prominent preachers are wimpy and live compromised lives? And you know exactly who I am talk about! Some sit next to Jezebels and high priestesses on their talk shows and bow to their gods of gossip and sin. Mixing with the world instead of taking a page out of Moses and Elijah to vehemently curse their shows as well as offer an altar call right on their show.

There is a lot to be done. So, if you have shed a tear about the election, it is time to get up and fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life. It is time to be salt and light in the earth. Stop looking at America like it is the church. It is not. Believers of the Lord Jesus Christ make up the church. And God is not surprised by these events. Let’s move from the place of mourning to the place of walking in the will of God and “Preach Until Sinners Hear.”

What Does A Real Marriage Look Like?

As the saying goes in many marriage seminars…

“Many prepare for the wedding but they do not prepare for the marriage.”

So much has been said about the sinful activities of sex and what goes on in a marriage that we really do not have that much of a clue as to what a really good, successful marriage looks like.

Some of us are so inundated with TV marriages, TV homosexuality, 30 minute solutions, episodes, drama, and tidying up after a few episodes, that when the show on TV is over, we resume our “normal” routines. Because marriages, inside and outside the church end in divorce at the 50+% rate, we are challenged by LGBT. They have already issued a challenge that they could do better at marriage.

We all know that they can’t because of the sin of homosexuality. God did not join male and male or female and female together.

Genesis 2:24 is the basis for this for marriage is Biblically defined as a union between one male and one female. Homosexuals cannot become one flesh because their sex organs are incompatible. Therefore, they cannot teach heterosexual couples anything about marriage.

Besides, it’s about holy matrimony, not perversion.

In many marriages between one man and one woman, arguments, frustrations, adultery, fornication, porn, chat room porn, money issues, child abuse issues, molestations, religious fairy tale spins, and domestic violence, unnecessarily fill our lives.

When the Lord brought Eve to Adam, everything was set. Adam had God in his life. Adam had a job. He tilled the Garden and he was supposed to subdue and have dominion. Meaning that if there was anyone or anything out of the ordinary, it was his job to straighten it out. It was Adam’s job to handle business.

To cut right to the chase, it is what’s in the character of two individuals that determines the kind of marriage they will have.

We can no longer rely only on observing other couples because you are not going to see everything that goes on in their lives.

Too many times, we look to “marriage templates” to see what we can use to make a marriage successful. We look at their money handling experiences, sexual satisfaction experiences, time management experiences, and communication or connection experiences. We look to reinvent to find ways to bring vigor back to a relationship. We look to spice or bring spark to a dull relationship that is in deep trouble.

It all boils down to the man working on his character and the woman working on her character.

The fallen nature of Adam and Eve produced an evil character. Sinister character. Selfish character.

The only remedy to this is to be born again through the power of the Holy Spirit. To repent of sin. To come under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

The Bible tells us in Jeremiah 17:9….

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; Who can know it? I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.”

The Lord knows what lurking in the hearts of people. And let’s face it. People do not want to change. Some people are stuck in their ways and would rather divorce than change. If the heart refuses to change, people are in trouble and marriages are definitely in trouble.

Galatians 5:22 is the fruit of the Spirit. One person taught it this way that the fruit of the Spirit is the “recreated human spirit by the Holy Spirit.”

In other words, after a person repents of sin, and is born again, the Holy Spirit teaches them how to mature in the character of Christ by the obedient application of the Word of God.

The Holy Spirit teaches men and women these things….

Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control.

Hence, a real marriage looks like these things because these things represent the very character or attribute of Christ.

We must all work these things into our lives and then work to bring it out of our lives.

No marriage is perfect but the Lord is perfect, and His Word is perfect.

Before I go further, a man and a woman must be satisfied in the Lord before they can be satisfied with each other. No relationship can achieve full satisfaction apart from a strong, vibrant relationship with the Lord. Too many couples are looking for satisfaction in a marriage and do not get me wrong, in a way some satisfaction will be achieved.

But God is the only One that can bring complete and everlasting satisfaction to a person.

God created man in His image (see Genesis 1:26). So man must look to the Creator and he must look to the Word of God as given from the Creator to help him incorporate the character of God into his character. It takes a lot of work by the man to relinquish stubbornness, resistance, and rebellion” in his mind and flesh to receive correction where he is not proficient in the “recreated human spirit by the Holy Spirit.”

Therefore, in order for a man to have a good marriage, he must be willing to take drastic steps to deal with his character in order for his marriage to last.

So it is also with the woman. She must be proficient in the “recreated human spirit by the Holy Spirit.”

Too often, women spend so much time trying to influence her husband to be a certain way, and that is time wasted if you are pushy, and contending with him to be a certain way. 

Sometimes, by pushing him, you are helping him into the bosom of a harlot.

The man is already in a  stubbornness, resistance, and rebellion” mode and the wife becomes really frustrated that he isn’t responding because he is in his stubbornness, resistance, and rebellion” mode.

The one thing that wives must learn is that when you desire for your husband to change, sometimes, not all the time, but sometimes change has to begin with you before it can happen with your husband. Spend time looking within your heart and mind for areas where the Lord has told you to change but you refuse. Too often in the “beauty world” of women, their “outer perfection” is obscuring their character flaw within.

Look at what Peter said in 1 Peter 3:1-4…..

“Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. Do not let your adornment be merely outward — arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel — rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.”

We must all remember that there is somethings that we know are not right within us. The moment that we admit that and remain teachable, the Lord will help us all to make the right kind of adjustment that will bring a blessing to our marriages.

The fruit of the recreated human spirit by the Holy Spirit is the true reflection of the heart of Christ. Before, during, and after the wedding, if a man and a woman would work on become these things in a relationship, everything else falls into place. From the Lordship and Dominion of Jesus and His Word, to incorporating these essential elements into his or her life, the rough edges and childish behaviors will dissipate.

The marriage relationship works from the inside out.

Notice what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 12:33-35……

“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.”

Let me reiterate.

The marriage relationship works from the inside out.

As a man, whatever is in you is going to come out. As a woman, whatever is in you is going to come out.

So what you say and do, if you are a good tree, good fruit is going to come out.

If you want a good fruit marriage, the fruit of the recreated human spirit by the Holy Spirit must be produced. If you want a bad fruit marriage, then evil will come out all of the time.

You have to purpose to be mindful of the kind of fruit that is going to come out of you. That means you have to spend time making sure that childishness is subdued. Usually, marriages become bad due to childishness. And when childishness is in the mix, there is a deliberate and intentional abandoning of the fruit of the recreated human spirit by the Holy Spirit.

In other words, you stop doing what the Word says to do to have something or to do something that is detrimental to a relationship. So there must be a constant guard to always put the Word of God first before saying or doing something of a childish nature.

When a husband and a wife intentionally look to please the Lord, it becomes very difficult to do something against each other. Because you would never seek to do something harmful to the Lord. Additionally, you must remember that the Lord lives in each of you and what you do to each other reflects your true heart attitude towards the Lord.

We prove our love for the Lord when we keep His commandments (see 1 John 5:1-5). We disprove our love for the Lord when we deliberately sin against Him.

The same principle applies in our marriages. And when we intend to hurt our husband or wife, the Lord on the inside is hurt first because to hurt a person means that we intend to separate ourselves from the Lord and His Word to do what harm we intend to do to the one we claim to love, honor, and cherish.

Immaturity is the root of all divorces and separations.

But maturity in Christ is the root and foundation of all successful, and fruitful marriages.

This is what real marriages look like.

Abortion: Understanding The Real Root Cause- Adultery And Fornication

Before Roe vs. Wade, women were subjected to the cruel use of a coat hanger in back alleyways and other dark places to annul a life. After these women found out that they were pregnant, to terminate the pregnancy, this would be the method of choice. Many women bled to death and many pre born children would lie motionless, in pools of blood, after being pulled by compassionless extreme force from the safety of the mother’s womb.

After society found that this was unacceptable, Roe vs. Wade became landmark and precedent. Since then, over 50 million innocent children were “medically” terminated. It is estimated that 1.2 million abortions will take place this year in 2012. Meaning that 2.4 million males and females had sex (safe to say-committed adultery or fornication), and conceived a child.

98% of these abortions are unwanted or unintended pregnancies.

For years, since out of wedlock pregnancies took place, the arguments for or against abortion was, and is still being made. Emotions run high on both sides. Both pro-life and pro-choice camps are passionate about their positions but….

we preachers have failed to address the one point that really makes the difference.

Secret Sexual Sins.

Notice what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 15:19 from the Amplified Bible…..

“For out of the heart come evil thoughts (reasonings and disputings and designs) such as murder, adultery, sexual vice, theft, false witnessing, slander, and irreverent speech.” 

The evil spiritual condition of the heart is behind ALL “adultery” and “sexual vice.”

This is what we’ve been missing.

As the years progressed, the shame of births out of wedlock decreased. Years ago, the woman was stigmatized as a whore or prostitute.

To have children out of wedlock, used to be one of the most horrible things for a new unwed mother to experience. Single parenting.

Today, it is common as breathing air. Our inner cities are filled with baby carriages pushed by unwed, un-ringed mothers. Proudly strolling their child or walking them to school as they get older. Leaving them at the many day care homes and centers while they look for work, or go to school, work, and a second or third job while “brother man is screwing another beguiled woman, and producing another child or have children elsewhere.”

Fornication and adultery is an expected act in and outside the church.

And some pastors, either they are not preaching against fornication and adultery, they simply refuse to address the issue because single or married preacher man is watching porn and masturbating, or preacher man is screwing emotionally unstable church member, a choir member, or church secretary.

The problem is that the woman receive the brunt of the stigmatization while the men just smile and walk away. Children, generation after generation, are unaware of their biological fathers. Or the children will never know their biological father because they were aborted, rejected twice. 

As long as the unregenerate heart snubs their nose at God and continue to commit whoredom in the land, we will see more abortions. The freedom and the right to choose…to terminate a life, conceived out of wedlock, is traced all the way back to the bedroom of fornication and adultery.

When it comes to the world, they will argue all day long about abortion. That it is their right to chose. However, when it comes to fornication and adultery that the Bible says “comes out of evil thoughts such as…adultery and sexual vice,” this is the root cause of all abortions. If we can preach this without flinching, the fear of God is made aware.

As we can see, people avoid the places where the fear of God is. People avoid the true house of worship because God, through His ordained, holy, sanctified, and consecrated preachers will preach the Word in season and out of season. It doesn’t mean that there will be complete adherence to the Word. It’s been known that even those in church will not adhere to the Word of God for their own good.

Sadly, some in the church will just call adultery and fornication a mistake. The Bible calls it “whoredom and harlotry.”

The street calls them “hoes.” 

The Bible, in Proverbs, calls brother man “a fool.”

But regardless of these Biblical names, they will commit evil because of the unbridled lust that is in their hearts. The Word is evil spoken of and preachers are ridiculed as stupid for not understanding the times.

They tell preachers today, that they are behind the times. “GET OVER IT.”

In fact, they tell you not to “judge them” and to “stop throwing stones.”

All this is code for “Stop telling me about my sin. Get off my case!”

When the convicting power of God’s Word comes, there is no escape. But why does the conviction come? It’s because the Lord desires to save you from the sin that you are about to commit because He sees, down the road, ALL the stuff that the wind of your sin will bring.

It’s bad enough that the Lord is offended. What makes this all the more difficult is the fact that you could have avoided the trouble if you had listened. We all know that people will not listen. Sadly, many will do what they feel is right knowing that what they are doing is sin. The pleasure is just too much not to bypass. But after the pleasure, the decisions made by two fornicators or adulterers only reveal that the sin brought about contemplation of an immediate remedy.

Abortion.

This is done to avoid a 20 year whirlwind. But the whirlwind will come because of murder, no matter how legal the government makes it, is unavoidable.

Hosea 8:7 says….

“They sow the wind, and reap the whirlwind…”

The NLT says….

“They have planted the wind and will harvest the whirlwind.”

By abstaining from fornication. By keeping your flesh under control until you get married, you are preventing a whirlwind of problems and issues associated with your decision to have sex before marriage.

Sadly, some women will sow the wind. Sadly, some brothers will sow the wind.

There is no doubt about the whirlwind and it’s power to destroy.

That’s why we pastors must get at the root cause and not just voice the Word of God alone about the heinous crime of snuffing out the life of a child that was caught in the middle of a person’s sin of adultery and fornication. The “expedient” “expeditious” annulling of a life is a coward’s way out of assuming full responsibility.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Few realize that fornication, adultery, homosexuality, and bisexuality are destructive to the true family nucleus of father, mother, and legitimate children. The sins of the flesh, Secret Sexual Sins are destructive to the Biblical pattern of family. Divorce because of sexual immorality is destructive to the family nucleus, ordained by God. Sexual immorality is MOAB, The Mother Of All Battles. And the devil has stopped the church on the plains of MOAB just like he stopped the children of Israel in the plains of MOAB. All because of sexual immorality.

With President Obama signing off on more funding for abortion, the root cause of fornication and adultery is “approved” by the laws of man.

But thanks be to God that you do not have to go this route no matter who says that you have a right to right a wrong with a wrong.

We must remember that the root cause of adultery is fornication and adultery. No matter how unpopular the Word of God is, we must be found preaching the righteous Word of God and do more to not let society teach us how to circumvent Genesis 2:24.

Together, we can lessen the lives lost every day. Together, we can stop sowing the wind and watch a whirlwind continuously destroy our people.
