LGBT: SCOTUS Prop 8 Vote. The Most Important Decision Of The 21 Century

I do not think that the Body of Christ is aware of the ramifications of this all important vote.

The Supreme Court Of The United States (SCOTUS) will be set to hear oral arguments on Proposition 9 and certain provisions in DOMA. I just read an article about what took place in Canada when a man passed out flyers that shared about the Bible being against the sin of homosexuality. Two homosexual men were offended and took him to court. The brother in the Lord lost the case and was fined.

You can read the link here….http://christiannews.net/2013/02/28/canadian-supreme-court-rules-biblical-speech-opposing-homosexual-behavior-is-a-hate-crime/

A friend on FB posted this link and I believe that the Lord is warning the church in the United States of what is to come.

The Lord spoke to me about the election of 2012 that the election that took place paved the way for what is to come.

In the article above, I hope that you paid enough attention to note that should the Supreme Court strike Proposition 8 down as unconstitutional and strike down certain provisions of DOMA, the level of persecution of believers in Christ and pastors will exponentially rise to unprecedented levels in the US. In Canada, the courts have deemed preaching against the sin of homosexuality as hate speech.

This sets the precedence for persecution that would make the dark ages look like child’s play.

Free speech is about to be erased and we will be subjected to persecution. We must also understand that these are the last days. These are the days of Noah and Lot. We cannot be afraid of their faces. We must preach the truth regardless of the punitive damages the world imposes upon those who believe the Word of God.

It is interesting to note that oral arguments will begin one week before Passover.

The History Channel will show the miniseries called “The Bible” beginning 03/03/2013.

Oral arguments are set for March 26 and a decision by the SCOTUS should be reached by June 27.

Folks, this is no coincidence and the Lord was never caught off guard.

We must however, take note of the fact that since Canada is a dark place, the same darkness is making its way here in the United States.

As Jesus said, “The night comes when no man could work.”

Paul warned us in Romans 13:11-14.

“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lust.”

And this is exactly what the church in the United States has done. We are sleeping and this is the price.

When 50% of pastors struggle with porn. When 70% or more of professed believers struggle with porn. When 93% of African Americans voted to re-elect Barack Obama as POTUS. When 3% of the US population that is LGBT has a bigger influence on the immorality course of this nation than the morality influence of the church, it is clear that we are in serious trouble.

The devil doesn’t mind if we sing praise to God while we engage in sexual immorality. The devil doesn’t mind if we preach watered down sermons that has no conviction of the Holy Spirit. The devil doesn’t mind if we preachers with dog collars and miters on are Emotional Manipulators, Intellectual Manipulators, and Revelatory Manipulators. The devil doesn’t mind you having a “praise break.”

In fact, right in the middle of your praise break the devil is holding your hands and dancing right along with you.

The devil doesn’t mind so long as we never start living the truth before we preach the truth. In the church, you have many people that are quick to live in sin, curse God, and then turn around and praise God with you. You have many people that is attached to corporate organizations that fund the LGBT agenda. In more ways than you can shake a stick, the products that we purchase will have some connections to the money trail that fund sexual immorality. Just like the purchase of porn is a Seamless Connection to alcohol, drugs, prostitution, strip clubs, human trafficking, child porn and molestation, the simple purchase of certain items funds the agenda of LGBT and abortion.

The taxes that we pay, if the Lord could show the deep connections to worldwide immorality, we would cringe. However, somewhere down the line, we may only have had a hand in someone’s involvement in the sins of the world if we participated in purchasing sin. The disconnection that saves us is the fact that we have no direct connection to their sins, unless we did purchase porn or other sinful things.

The believer’s vulnerability is self inflicted and the devil took full advantage.

I say again, that the Lord was never surprised. He wasn’t surprised with Samson, Saul, or David in their sins.

So He is not surprised with ours today.

After reading of the imminent possibility that the 31 states that placed in their state constitution an amendment protecting marriage between one man and one woman is in jeopardy, that everyone knew that there was something up the sleeves of LGBT. The Spirit of God always warn me that something is going on. The thing that I haven’t been able to get is what is that thing that is going on that I don’t know about yet.

When it is just too quiet it is an indication that something is about to happen.

Well, the Bible tells us “When there is peace and safety, then comes sudden destruction.”

It is not a coincidence that around Passover, we are seeing these issues come to head. And for the most part, it is getting to the point that we are so comfortable being tied to the posts with our eyes out like Samson is too comfortable. It is dark outside and getting darker. We are reaching the apex or culmination of the end of the ages. The only thing that the Lord told us to do is to be ready.

Jesus said, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”

We do not know when the Lord will come, that is why we must stand and occupy until He comes. This is no time to pack our bags. This is the moment to stand in the face of opposition and speak the truth. We will not run. We will not hide. We will fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life. We will not buckle under the pressure of persecution. We will not look for the convenience and comfort, and safety of the inner sanctuary. What is to come must come and we must be prepared to stand for what is right.

Remember Revelation 21:8. Cowards have no place in the kingdom.

This is the valley of the shadow of death and we are to fear no evil, for He is with us.

Let’s stand and fight.

Just Can’t Seem To Quit Self Gratification

Oh, heaven NO!!!!

No relapse on my part. Not on your life because we are getting too close to the finale. I know that’s it’s been a while since my last blog. However, this is not a report of me backsliding kind of blog.

The trumpet will sound and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we that are alive and remain will be caught up together in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

To stay holy is my one goal. I do not plan to be fulfilling the lust of the flesh and satisfying myself when Jesus comes.

Some of you may recall the 10 virgins. Five were wise. Five were foolish. When the bridegroom came, it was time for them to go to the wedding. The five wise had enough oil for the journey in the night and the five foolish did not. The five foolish asked the five wise to spare what they had, and the wise ones declined.

The five wise told them to go and buy for themselves. So they went out to buy oil for themselves, and they found some, but by the time they got to the door, it was shut.

They knocked on the door and the bridegroom did not let them in.

It was too late.

There are many incentives to take advantage of to quit sexual immorality, however, very few will incorporate such incentives.

The pleasures of self gratification can be overwhelming because of the rewards it offers. However, the reward of heaven with Christ outweighs the pleasures of self gratification. There comes a point in your walk with the Lord where masturbation is something you do not need.

Dr. Mark Laaser, who wrote a book on Healing The Wounds Of Sexual Addiction, did a course and placed a powerful lesson on Sexual Addiction on CD. He asked a question, “Can you do without masturbation and sex with your wife?” That’s radical. Because he continued and said, “If you can’t, you do not have full control and you cannot manage your sex life.”

The release of sexual tension is powerful. However, there comes a point where these pleasure of life must come to an end one way or another. Either through self discipline or when the catching away of the people of God takes place. Even after that, people will still engage in some form of releasing sexual tension. Even then, it’s just a matter of time before it all comes to an end.

NO MORE SEX!!!!! FOREVER!!!!!!

For many people, a sense of hopelessness and shame clouds the mind. Hopelessness is the fog of war in the mind and flesh.

As long as this feeling of hopelessness lingers in the mind, the attempt to break free is the light at the end of the tunnel that is seemingly a fleeting thing. Many men and women have dashed their hopes because the urges and impulses dictates their every move.

In my studies about sexuality, I learned that many people plan their day around sex. It usually is at the expense of a marriage, their job, and ultimately, their relationship with the Lord. It was true for me too. The obsession, infatuation, day dreaming, open minded thoughts of reading a newspaper, magazine, women watching, and porn. My whole day was planned around an orgasm.

All these things and the true worship of God takes a back seat. In most cases, a relationship with God in hypocrisy is better than no relationship at all. As ridiculous as this sounds, this is where many of God’s people are. I can identify with this because when you refuse to equate the sin of self gratification as part of the religious ritual of false penance, it is easy to think that you are just as close to God as if you never sinned.

Like John, the apostle of the Lamb said, “If we say we have fellowship with Him and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.”

I know you are not going to let me off the hook about calling masturbation a sin because there is no specific chapter and verse that declares that masturbation is a sin. However, where the Bible is silent, it is never to be assumed that it is safe to commit an act. Besides, not many people will agree that since Jesus didn’t do it, neither should I.

This stops all of the pretense.

I mean, we are to be like Christ in every way? Right?

If this is so according to, Romans 8:29, and if we are to prove that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God, to yield our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is our reasonable service according to Romans 12:1, then we should be able, at least consider the fact that the Lord desires for sin to not have dominion over us according to Romans 6:12.

The majority of the time, we are always looking for a reason to continue in sin that grace may abound” according to Romans 6:1. When we get to the place where we desire to please the Lord, we find ourselves looking for reasons to continue in righteousness so that grace may abound. We look to cut our hands and our eyes, we look to strive against sin even to the shedding of our own blood to stop sin.

No, put the Rambo knife down.

Jesus and the writer of Hebrews spoke of entering a place of radical cutting off of the instruments and members so that we would stop sinning.

Paul said, by the Spirit of God, “The body is not made for sexual immorality.” 

The physical body was made to be indwelled by the Lord. The Lord desired to inhabit man and the body is not for fornication (pornea).

As long as we make provision to fulfill the desires of the flesh and mind, we will never break its cycle.

Millions of men and women throughout the world masturbate every day. For reasons that range from sexual perversion to fulfill lust, to releasing sexual tension is a major problem. It seems like marriage, which is the answer to stop masturbation is no longer the answer that man wants to accept. Additionally, self control, a fruit of the Spirit according to Galatians 5:22, is cast to the side.

The parable of the sower is the most powerful parable that Jesus ever spoke. In that parable is the answer to handle the problems we face in life. It also serves as the gauge or measuring tool to locate where you are in your relationship with the Lord. Producing fruit is the thing that most concerns the Father. Galatians 5:22. John 15:1-5 confirms this and Jesus further confirms this when He said that we are known by our fruit.

Man will stand in four places. Good ground, wayside, stoney ground, and thorny ground.

The last ground, thorny ground speaks of people that are trapped in cares, riches, and pleasures of life. 

The pleasures of this life come with a price. If we are unable to cast aside the pleasures of this life, we may never be free. But thank God your failure is not final. While there is still time, you can enjoy freedom in Christ from the powerful urge to masturbate. You can return to experience a healthy sexual life with your wife or husband if you are married.

Most importantly, you can be restored in your relationship with the Lord in righteousness and true holiness, laying aside every weight and the sin that does so easily beset you, to lay aside every filthiness and overflow of wickedness, to cleanse ourselves from the filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Hopelessness is coming to an end for you. New life in Christ is at hand for you.

10 Deadly Sins Of Leaders Involved In Secret Sexual Sins. #5 Pride And Arrogance

Proverbs 8:13 says, “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate.”

Pride and arrogance is always at the root of a fallen leader. In most cases, a sense of invincibility comes into the mind of a man and you begin to have a false sense of security. Security in the sense that you believe nothing is going to happen to you, or that you would not get caught.

There was once a king in Africa that was married. He had sex with a prostitute that was HIV/AIDS positive. While there is no such thing as unprotected sex because you either have sex or you don’t. Any way my point is that he wore no condom. Even condoms fail but the failure is not the point. Where your hands travel and where your penis goes, penetration is not necessary for infection.

That’s my point.

However, this king decided to have sex without a condom. A few years ago, on the continent of Africa, many people were ignorant of the transmission of diseases (STD). So, they would engage in sex and today, the pandemic of AIDS is an international crisis. This king of a nation thought that by taking a shower and washing his genitals, he would not get infected.

Pride and arrogance, when not removed by humility and wisdom is part of a male’s inability to guard against urges and impulses, which, in turn, dictates choices. When you got your flesh and mind set to engage in sex with a person, wisdom is thrown to the wind.

Psalm 107:17 says “Fools! Because of their transgressions and because of their iniquities are afflicted.”

The word “fools” means “to be perverse,” and it also means “one who despises wisdom.”

When it comes to sex, males will bypass every alarm just to engage in sex. When pride and arrogance kicks in, there is nothing that may stop him except if something happens by way of divine intervention.

Asa, king of Israel comes to mind when it comes to pride and arrogance.

However, let me share this. No matter the denomination or non denomination, when a leader becomes full of himself or herself, it is very easy to make a series of decisions that lacks basic judgment. When you see that a leader fails to operate in good judgment, it is a matter of time before they will make the ultimate decision that will cost him or her the pulpit.

We leaders sometimes forget that we operate under delegated authority. Leaders are not absolute authority. The measure or rule of authority is defined by the boundaries of the Word of God. To exceed the boundaries established by the Lord in His Word is extremely costly, and deadly.

Asa became king over Judah and Benjamin. In the 14th chapter of 2 Chronicles, Asa made a series of reformations that virtually destroyed idol worship and sexual immorality in the region. However, Asa left one thing undone. The high place remained. Anytime you leave something undone, it is indicative of not fully walking in obedience to the known will of God. If you are going to clear the deck, make every effort to clear the deck. Otherwise, it will come back at you in a very bad way.

Asa was tested. The Army of Asa was only 580,000 men. Then the Ethiopians came against Asa. 1 million men and 300 hundred chariots. Asa cried to the Lord and Judah prevailed. The Spirit of the Lord came upon Azariah the son of Oded and gave Asa the Word of the Lord (see 2 Chronicles 15). When you get to the 16th chapter, that’s when Asa lost it. He made a treaty with Syria to prevent Israel from from boxing in Judah. Israel was defeated by the Syrians but the Lord rebuked Asa for trusting in his own wisdom to get out of a situation.

The prophet Hanani gave Asa these words from the Lord.

“And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said to him: Because you have relied on the king of Syria, and have not relied on the Lord your God, therefore the army of the king of Syria has escaped from your hand. Were the Ethiopians and the Lubim not a huge army with very many chariots and horsemen? Yet, because you relied on the Lord, He delivered them into your hand. For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.”

Asa was so furious and so full of himself that he put the prophet in jail.

Note also that the prophet said that “In this you have done foolishly…”

Do you recall Psalm 107:17?

The opposite of foolishness is wisdom.

Asa failed to call upon the Lord and called upon Syria. In the same manner, the deliverance would have been assured. God came through against 1 million men and 300 hundred chariots. To come against the Syrians would have been the same results. The end for Asa was tragic. Asa was diseased in his feet. To me, that signified Asa will walk the earth no more. Asa sought relief from the doctors and never thought to look to the Lord, first to repent, and second to get healed. Mind you that at any time, Asa could have repented and cried to the Lord to be healed, but pride and arrogance led him to his grave.

Asa sought his own means and look where it led him.

To his grave.

So it is with Secret Sexual Sins.

There are four things that is associated with pride and arrogance.

1. Elitism. 2. Empowerment. 3. Entitlement. 4. Expediency.

When you believe that you are elite, you will feel empowered to do anything. When you believe within yourself that you are empowered, you will deceive yourself into thinking that you are entitled to any man or woman to have them sexually. When you believe you are entitled, because of a lack of wisdom, you will do anything, including break the Word of God and the laws of man to achieve your prize of orgasm, hence expediency.

Sadly, many men (including myself) have fallen for this. In various ways, we have sinned before God because we thought that we were invincible. That nothing would happen. That we would get away with it.

There are no winners with pride and arrogance. The devil is the biggest loser of them all. Sadly, many men and women that were to be of God will lose with the devil. It doesn’t have to be this way.

“Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God…”

The pulpit is the second most powerful place in the world. The place of personal prayer in the life of leaders and believers is the first most powerful place on earth. The grace of God is there that permits us to speak the Word of God. The oracles and ability comes from the Father. We somehow, deceived ourselves into thinking that it’s all about us and the next thing that happens is a series of deliberate decisions to satisfy ourselves sexually.

The only way out of this is humility.

I’ll leave you with this.

Humbleness of mind and humility, once acted upon, will prevent humiliation.

I Can’t Back Down Now

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, The just shall live by faith. 

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.”

Paul shared these words in Romans chapter one. These powerful words indicate that he may or may not have been tempted to be quiet or to be ashamed about the power of God exhibited in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

A boldness came over him because he remembered what happened to him on the road to Damascus.

The Light that was brighter than the noon day sun shown around him. This Light was Jesus.

John, the apostle of the Lamb reminded us about this Light in chapter one of the gospel of John. “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John also quoted Jesus saying, “I am the Light of the world.” John reminded us again about the Light in his first general epistle, “that God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.”

John reminds us of the Light in Revelation chapter one when John said, “”and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength,” and finally in Revelation chapter 22, “They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. There shall be no night there; They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.”

Paul remembered this experienced because he observed the darkness coming upon the whole earth.

Sometimes shame can cause a person to back down, however, Paul chose not to back down but to stand firm.

Paul remembered on that road these words,

“to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those that are sanctified by faith in Me.”

After all, this is about bring many people from the place of darkness and the only thing that could do it is the light of the glorious gospel.

This country, the United States of America is in darkness because the church allowed darkness to enter their hearts. The place where the darkness entered is the media. All perversion of the devil is broadcast in some form, by way of our TV’s. It’s destructive power influences like no other. When people desire darkness, it is now broadcast to our phones and other devices. We can view anything and not have to wait until we arrive at home to view it.

Today, brother Milton Charles Barnes shared a message by Dr. Myles Monroe about a leadership conference evidently held in the Bahamas, at his local church on a message “Transforming Society.”

Being agents of change. If you are ready to be an agent of change, click the link below, but if you need an example of an agent of change, wait till you click the link at the end of this blog.

Here is the link to that message.

This message underscores the reason why the American church is under the spell and influence of LGBT.

The world and some segments of the church is hypnotized and under great spell of the seducing spirits and doctrine of devils.

I’ve often wondered why we are ineffective as a church and it is found in the media. We are so drunk with the world that we can’t hear the Word of God. When the truth is spoken, there is considerable resistance to the known will of God. We don’t stand a chance to operate in the power of God on the level of the early church because they didn’t have these distractions. We are so engulfed with the affairs of the world that we are the most ineffective bunch of Christians the world has ever seen.

Even in Prevailing Word Ministries, the work the Lord led me to start, we are seeing major changes but we are also seeing major resistance against the power of the gospel inside and outside the local church. If the church would see that the damaging affects of TV is at the root of ineffective Christ like living, we would pull the plug on TV.

Little did we know that we would watch the erosion of morals. From “Ricky” and “Lucy” sleeping in separate beds when “I Love Lucy” was produced, to all forms of lewd acts on TV, and movie screens. What was once unacceptable is now normal. The church has moved from dictating morals by powerful preaching and living of the Word of God to inviting lewdness to come directly into the house of the Lord.

An example of this is found in GCMWatch’s recent blog

Click the link below to read about lewdness in the church.

http://www.gcmwatch.com/9930/gay-christian-debachery-dennis-merediths-church-sex-class

But it doesn’t matter. We cannot back down now. We have to push the Word of God regardless of the hour we are in. Regardless of the enemies arrayed against us. The comfort zone of the child of God is no longer safe. The persecution is here. We cannot retreat into the house of the Lord. We must advance the cause of the gospel of Jesus Christ no matter what.

We cannot back down now.

As hurt as most people will be, I cannot back down from preaching the purest form of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I don’t care what is lost except that I can’t do without truth. Truth must not be lost. We can’t be afraid to tell people inside and outside the church the truth of the gospel. The moment we are afraid to lose is a moment that we lose it all. God is about truth and if people cannot accept the truth, then the church is not the pillar and the ground of truth.

Sexual immorality has decimated the church. Preachers and believers are so drunk with sex that we do not know what it means to be intimate with the Lord. We are not paying attention to what is happening outside and inside the church. We have permitted lewdness to have free course. We bring in the sin only to let sin off the hook instead of killing it. Now mind you, Jesus was our propitiation. He became the appeasing sacrifice so that we can be free of the power and guilt of sin.

If we lose this element of truth in the church, then sin will reign without prohibition.

If the church fails to preach against sin and provide the love of the Father as the only way out of sin, we are no better than a strip joint. The church has become a strip joint where perversion is permitted without question. The church has become a whore house where the Lord had to depart because for Him to stay, no one would survive His presence.

In the days ahead, we will see more persecution. I recently observed a video of a street preacher in Toronto, Canada, preaching under a tremendous anointing. And people were resistant to the power of the gospel. It is dark in Canada. The spirit of darkness has set up rule in Canada. So much so that a demon possessed man warned this young street preacher that he would unleash darkness over the whole face of the area.

At the conclusion of the video, the last video the demon’s promise was somewhat fulfilled. This young street preacher preached the gospel right in the middle of an LGBT parade, surrounded by LGBT people. The light came on and the devil, who was perhaps a ruler of the darkness of this world, personally came to check that light.

A special thanks to Sister Vanessa Olszen, a FB friend in the Lord for sharing this video with us.

But how many of you know that the darkness cannot comprehend the light?

This from of darkness is in the church. It is not attacking the church. It is not invading the church. This form of darkness is in the church. The only way to deal with this darkness is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, cast out devils that are in people in the streets, and lead people to Christ in the backyard of the devil.

At the same time, in our local assemblies, we cannot back down from preaching the pure unadulterated Word of God. This assignment that the Lord gave me is beyond me. However, His grace is sufficient for me. In some places, it may cost you your life. However, we must remember that the Lord gave His life for us. He paid a powerful penalty for our redemption.

We cannot back down now.

Super Bowl HalfTime Show: The Temple Door To PPV Playboy, Spice, And Hustler

The temple of perversion was open for business and it was crowded. Every one that came, got served. No one left disappointed.

Just read Ezekiel 23. Especially the part about “whose issue is like the issue of horses.”

In this manner, the altar of sexual perversion was to the point that the “issue” ran like an overflowing river.

There was a time when the halftime shows during the Super Bowl would be college football marching bands. Even then, they had scantily clad woman twirling batons and color guards. Something like the movie Drumline. Things have changed for the worse. The Super Bowl halftime show pulled many born again believers to see what is going to happen. This big as day trap captured the imagination of the unsuspecting, though they weren”t unsuspecting.

With clear deliberate intent, they made up their minds to obey their real lord. The devil. Their love for the world is more than their love for God.

John, the apostle of the Lamb said this…..

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world passes away and the lust thereof, but he that does the will of the Father abides forever.”

There is no doubt in my mind that many men went away captured by the seduction of Beyonce.

Married women, your husband was captured by the eyelids of a seductress, right in front of you, and perhaps, you’ve done nothing to stop him. Besides, any man bent on watching that show will not even let God stop them.

Jesus said in Matthew 5:27-30….

“You have heard that it was said to those of old, You shall not commit adultery. But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”

Some brothers refused to do the radical thing and pluck the eye out. Look at what Hebrews 12:4 says…

“You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.”

This is speaking of doing something radical to prevent yourself from sinning.

How radical are you willing to go to keep yourself from hell?

Proverbs 6:23-25 says

“For the commandment is a lamp, and the law a light; reproofs of instruction are the way of life, to keep you from the evil woman, from the flattering tongue of a seductress. Do not lust after her beauty in your heart, nor let her allure you with her eyelids.”

EXMinistries was able to note the Twitter of people after the show and it is not surprising to see Marvin Sapp speak about the halftime show.

Click the link below to read the blog from EXMinistries, but be warned. The pictures you will see are sexually graphic and demonically inspired.

If you are not disciplined, you will be seduced. 

http://exministries.wordpress.com/2013/02/06/a-true-church-prospective-beyonces-super-bowl-half-time-show/

When you see Marvin Sapp, the pastor/preacher singer that lost his wife a couple of years ago to colon cancer, applaud Beyonce, it was an act of mercy that his wife was in heaven.

But now she knows what kind of man of God he is.

Many preachers that will preach this Sunday, without question, bowed to this seductress and paid obeisance.

How?

PPV porn and self gratification.

Years ago, this would be my mode of operation. After being seduced, it would not be enough. The devils behind all of this used to lead me right to the place where most unbridled men go.

Porn and masturbation.

Since the grace of God cleaned me and destroyed porn and masturbation in my life, talking about this area on the Internet has been met with stiff resistance. Brothers do not like to be exposed. They believe that what they do in secret must be kept that way. At least that’s what some men that claim to be in Christ think. However, the Lord is cleaning up His Body and it starts with the men. You will be exposed. If a man hasn’t repented of this sin, exposure is just a matter of time.

I find that when exposure comes, it worse for a family. When a man Comes Clean about it, at least he can get help and get his marriage on track. However, before the marriage can get back on track, his relationship with the Lord must be restored. Adultery in the natural resulted from being unfaithful to God first. When your relationship with God is not right, the door to sin is wide open.

I believe that a clarion call from the Holy Spirit to avoid the Super Bowl was issued. Some heeded the warning while others went to the slaughter house. This Sunday for most places, it may be difficult to pray and preach through the lusts demons. Sitting at Jezebel’s table, they drank of her seduction and are drunk with her wine. It will be difficult to preach unless…..pastor, you fast and pray. That the Holy Spirit will give you the boldness to address the seduction and provide a place of recovery for brothers drunk with the wine of sexual seduction.

The preachers that preach about the power of Hip Hop and the Illuminati know that these things lead a man right to the Playboy, Spice, and Hustler channel. Little do men know that 15.99 pays for the enslaved sexual slave-master to imprison underage and adult women.

You are watching someone’s daughter, aunt, niece, or baby sister.

You are part of a worldwide conspiracy of human trafficking for the sex trade. You and formerly myself are responsible for someone’s daughter being kidnapped. Our purchase of porn gave them gas money to drive around for the next victim. Our purchase of porn made it possible to watch men and women contract STD’s. Our purchasing of porn makes it possible for underage girls that prostitute themselves get an abortion should they become pregnant.

We are coconspirators of the greatest crime of slavery the world has ever known.

Watching Beyonce is part of it, and you know it.

They know that it is there that the bed of sexual immorality is full of lust and illicit passion. The male mind is obsessed with having Beyonce but the Lord is still the Deliverer.

Sexual pulpit predators feed on this stuff all the time and many people in church do the same. The young ladies that watched the halftime show are being schooled in the power of femininity. Couple that with demon power and the desire to have power over a man is fully set within them. In one Twitter statement, a young daughter asked her mother to take her to a Beyonce concert. No doubt for the purpose of grooming her for seductive roles in the future.

Young unsuspecting brothers do not know what awaits them, but they do know because they want to be seduced like that.

Little do they know that to yield to Delilah like Samson did is a death trap where everything that you own will be owned by the seductress. During my studies of Sexual Addiction, I noted the fact that there are women out there that desire to connect with men, so they will use their feminine powers of seduction to connect with men. Then there are women that do not like men at all, but they love to exercise their feminine power to rule men.

Proverbs 7:1-5 says, 

“My son, keep my words, and treasure my commands within you. Keep my commands and live, and my law as the apple of your eye. Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart. Say to wisdom, You are my sister, and call understanding your nearest kin, that they may keep you from the immoral woman, from the seductress who flatters with her words.”

The book of Proverbs is a book for males on the conduct of life. It constantly depicts the heart of the wise and the heart of fools. The first 7 chapters deal with sexual issues. This is the place where males will fail miserably for not taking heed to the wisdom of Solomon who, evidently himself, ignored God’s own wisdom.

In the end, Solomon sexually had 1000 women or more. He loved woman. However, these women turned his heart away from God.

The wrong woman will lead you away from God.

The right woman will always have the Lord in mind in everything that she does. To lead a man away from God is selfish and demonic.

Watch this. These proverbs are like the heavenly Father teaching His son in Christ.

Hear the Word of the Lord, my brother…..

“My son, keep My words, treasure My commands within you. Keep My commands and live…..

Can you hear the Father speaking to you? God desires to keep you from the immoral woman and from the seductress who flatters with her words. You see the seductress will use all sorts of womanly words to get you to do what she says. At times, the immoral woman will just let you sexually have her so she could get what she wants from you, even if it costs you your relationship with God.

The desire of the seductress is for her to be worshipped and obeyed. Sex is the tool that she uses to get you to yield to her will. This is demonic and perverse. That’s why the fruit of the Spirit called self control” must be used at all times. Even in certain marriages, women that are not really after the Lord will use her femininity to dominate her husband. That’s why you are called to lead and to be disciplined.

The desire to be pure is the issue of the day. The thing that the devil fights the most is people that decide to ignore his tempting power. Those that would not yield to his plan of seduction in the earth are definitely targeted.

One person said,

“A holy man is an awesome weapon in the hands of the Holy God!”

Holiness is not just the desire to never do unrighteousness but it is the epitome of relating with God on His level.

When you have perfect hatred for sin and everything that is against the Lord, your eyes will remain disciplined. When you have complete utter disdain for the works of darkness, you will do everything possible to stay in the light as He is in the light. When you treasure His Word above that of a seducer, you will become His treasure.

Those of you that claim to be holy and you chose to watch the halftime show, the Lord is grieved, but He still loves you. For those that took it to the next level and watched PPV porn, and masturbated, God was grieved, but He still loves you. For you women that may be immoral and use your femininity to seduce men, the Lord is grieved, but He still loves you.

Repentance is the only way to make it right. His righteousness is the only way to make it right. To be separate from the world and to hate everything, every work of the devil, is the only way to make it right. To ask for forgiveness and receive cleansing by the blood of Jesus is the only way to make it right. To abstain and never return to the pit of Secret Sexual Sins is the only way to make it right, and to keep it right.

Should the Lord tarry. When the Super Bowl comes on again, will you abstain to please the Lord, or will you bow your knee to porn and masturbation in the temple of perversion?

Whores In His House: Ladies And Gentlemen, Stop Playing Dumb With This

In the 23rd chapter of Ezekiel is a very powerful story of harlotry.

In most cases, when it comes to harlotry when it is explained in the natural, it is to reveal something spiritual.

The nation of Israel played the harlot and they were judged for it. Nonetheless, they also committed whoredom in the natural. Evidence of this is the plains of Moab from Numbers chapters 19 through 25. This whoredom carried over right into the core reason for their Babylonian captivity.

In the NT, when the Lord Jesus came to Jacob’s well, a woman in Samaria was a whore. She had five husbands and the one she was with was not her husband. The city of Samaria was mentioned in Ezekiel 23.

You just can’t make this up.

However, today, we see that harlotry or whoredom is alive and well in the house of God, called the church.

We know that when a preacher is caught in a sex scandal, few words are given about the woman that was equally involved. It’s almost like they are given a free pass, but we all know that when a man cannot break the seductive power of women, they will eventually fall.

The man is already in a seductive state because of the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, and the fuel of lust called porn and masturbation in his life. For the unbridled man, it’s the desire to get to the next level of sexual satisfaction from fantasy island. Porn and masturbation is just an imaginary playstation for out of control males. It is just a matter of time before he goes from his playstation to participate in the real game of sexual immorality.

He is just waiting to get enough nerve to seek a willing partner.

Hence, a seductive woman or an emotionally unstable woman to take advantage of.

Even if a woman claims to some form of instability, if she knew the Lord and what His Word says about fornication and adultery, there is no excuse.

There are many women that work the denial factor in their lives. They honestly believe that lust is not the case within them, but it is. There is lust in their hearts just as there is lust in a man’s heart. The sooner they face that reality, the better they could apply the discipline necessary to stick within the frame work of the Word of God to prevent whoredom in the House of God.

During my studies on Sexual Addiction, I observed two women that were involved in sexual addiction.

One woman was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer after several episodes of sexual immorality. This married woman had multiple sex partners and it was just a matter of time before she would contract an STD.

The other woman appeared to be a victim of pastoral misconduct called adultery.

In the adultery case, it appears that the male pastor misrepresented his professional position and took advantage of a married woman. However, it is very easy to blame the male pastor, and he should be blamed. It is true that men are deceptive, however, when you know what the Word of God says, you cannot trust a preacher that preaches the Word and then tell you, out of the same mouth that it is ok to sleep with him.

Pastor Tony Smith said it very well. The YouTube pastor that calls everyone a hypocrite. Please allow me to paraphrase….It is true that men are deceptive, however, when you know what the Word of God says, you cannot trust a preacher that preaches the Word and then tell you, out of the same mouth that it is ok to sleep with him.

The case of playing dumb does not work in the eyes of the Lord, especially when you know the Word.

When you know what the Word says, there is no where to hide.

Psalm 90:8 says……

“You have set our iniquities before You, our secret sins in the light of Your countenance.”

Lust works in the heart of women and men. Women burn for sex just like men. Releasing sexual tension works equally here in both men and women.

The sexual climate is more prevalent today than ever before.

All in the news, the seductress Beyonce` was advertised and brothers fell for it. Everyone of them that watched the Super Bowl and read the newspapers fell on their knees at her altar. Sad to say, many of them went to their sexual playstation and imagined having sex with her and masturbated.

Not me.

Paul said to “avoid the very appearance of evil.”

No news reading. No Super Bowl. No nothing.

I knew what to expect.

Some of you all remember the Janet Jackson Justin Timberlake wardrobe malfunction.

No….I did not watch that halftime show either…..but this is what the devil does. He sets all the foolish brothers up that think they are strong enough to watch the halftime show, and then the TV devils unleash their lust filled shows, and sex filled Super Bowl commercials and ensnares the unsuspecting fool as Proverbs chapter 7 tells us. The seductress is everywhere and brothers fail to take heed to avoid the very appearance of evil. They fall on their altar and are slaughtered like a bull in a slaughter house. Like chickens, their head is cut off.

None shall escape. No survivors.

Brothers, no matter how innocent it appears, the power to seduce you is everywhere and you have to exercise every precaution. Otherwise, you will be seduced and there may be no way to recover.

Ladies and gentlemen, when you are not in Christ, you are evil because you are not born again. Darkness abides in your heart and you will do exactly what the spirit of darkness tells you to do. When you refuse to avoid the appearance of evil, and you join yourself to sexual immorality, you will be judged, and you will die. However, for those that refused to watch the Super Bowl and the halftime show, you were spared and God is pleased.

No one is entitled to the mercy and grace of God.

God, through His Son spared us, and gave us a big break.

The mercy and grace of God is bestowed on us because of His unconditional love for man. We are underserving of mercy and grace, but because of His powerful love and forgiveness, He lavishly gives us a chance to get it right. However, there are those that believe that they are entitled to it and sin over and over again. This is an abuse of His love, forgiveness, grace, and mercy.

For 33 years, I took advantage of these things and thought that it was all good.

Wrong! I abused Him but He still waited for me to Come Clean.

Recently, a picture was produced that showed what a Michigan abortion facility does to the partial birth abortion babies.

Abortion is the end game of sexual immorality. Abortion is brought to you by fornication and adultery.

When you see the babies lying outside of the black trash bags, you can’t help to see that the one moment of pleasure was the price of their lives. We make so much stink about stopping abortion, and rightly so, but when will we be just as outraged to stop fornication and adultery that opens the door to abortion?

On YouTube, there was a Kenneth Copeland Minister’s Conference that showed Kenneth Copeland dealing with the abortion issue. It is important to point out that when you are dealing with abortion, we all know that there are demonic spirits that rule in this area, however, we can make all the statements about abortion, but until we deal with the flesh, we are just fooling ourselves. Marriage is honorable among all and the bed undefiled, the Bible tells us.

It looked so spiritual but, the root cause of all abortion is adultery and fornication. Let’s be a little more smarter than this. Protest against abortion, but protest just as heavy about fornication and adultery. Let’s stop whoredom in the church and call sin what it is.

It is a sin to have a married person sexually. It is a sin to have sex before marriage. It is harlotry and whoredom. It is sin in the eyes of God.

Paul admonishes us that to avoid sexual immorality, get married.

We all know that marriage is not THE cure all for sexual immorality, but holiness is. Being true and faithful to God is the only place where the power of God comes to help us in our weak moments to overcome temptation. Remember what Paul said that “fornicators……shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”

So ladies and gentlemen, we all know that whoredom can be avoided in the House of the Lord. This is not the time to lose the discipline. Once you get it in your minds that the devil is looking, not only to destroy your life on earth, but he wants your company in the eternal lake that burns with fire and brimstone.

Chasing After Pretty Boy Preachers & Temple Prostitutes

There is no question that when you look at the church spectrum the ratio of men to women in church is almost 20 to 1 or maybe 10 to 1 depending upon the size of the local church.

Additionally, looking at the world of marriage, very few that do attend will come in, already married. Some of them are single parents.

My intent is not to amplify the sins of single women. My intent is to get at the root of certain issues. I looked on twitter account of a person. Everyone’s twitter account can be seen to a degree. I wasn’t looking for personal information. Nothing on the criminal element but I couldn’t help but look at all the young ladies that were twitting his account.

He would announce that he would be in such and such a city, and these young ladies would show up. It’s the same with a well known preacher, Jamal Bryant. There are some dapper looking young preachers and they fill the house up quickly. Just look at the line up and advertisements, and you will see that the content of what the service is about is not necessarily a powerful, Holy Ghost meeting.

There was a pastor that opened up a church. He was single and a lot of women showed up at his church. He did a wise thing. He found a wife OUTSIDE the church.

The Sunday he introduced his then fiance`, some of the women left his church.

Some of these women have dreams about these preachers that they would marry them. Their minds are heavily saturated with these men that the obsession triggers a dream. Perhaps, the mental infatuation is so intense that the difference between a dream and day dreaming is indistinguishable.

Ladies, we all know that you come to church, however, the reason for coming to church must be the right reason. You’re supposed to come to church to see Jesus and preacher man is to come to church to preach Jesus.

I am not sure if this next story is as true as I heard it and if I am wrong, I’ll correct it.

Dr. Betty Price, the wife of Dr. Fred Price had cancer. Evidently, she was healed by the grace and power of God, but the backdrop behind this story is the fact that there were allegedly women in the waiting, looking to become the next Mrs. Fred Price upon her passing. When Dr. Betty Price got healed, the ladies that wanted to be the next Mrs. Fred Price left Crenshaw Christian Center. During one broadcast, Dr. Fred Price said one time, words to the effect that… Y’all not graced to be my wife. It is not certain that he said this before, during, or after Dr. Betty Price’s cancer issue, but it’s true.

Some women actually think that they can handle certain men. When there is no grace of God, forget it.

If you’ve ever heard Dr. Price preach, he can be rough around the edges and mean it.

The fact that there were women looking to position themselves to assume a position, and that, with a very rough man of God is folly of the highest order.

How cold is this?

The frigid temperatures on the North and South poles, including the vast cold regions in outer space, and the planets in the entire universe can’t be colder than these women that hoped Mrs. Betty Price would not live.

The heat of hades and the lake with fire and brimstone can’t melt a cold heart.

Proverbs 18:22 says….

“He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord.”

One single preacher put it out like this.

“If I am not looking your way, you are not the one.”

When brothers are not ready, they will not ask for a woman’s hand in marriage.

Believe me, brothers are slow. Some brothers are still playing the field (fooling around with another set of women). Others are fearful of making a commitment to the wrong one. This isn’t right, nor is it fair. The male has to start adjusting because when there is whoredom in the house of God, it’s because some brothers make it difficult for women.

On the other hand, some brothers can’t handle the responsibility. Bills, money being tight. The inability to compromise to make the relationship work out mutually. And the biggest issue of them all.

THEY ARE NOT SERIOUS ABOUT GOD!

These, factors, as well as his unbridled thirst for sex, porn, and masturbation, makes a male hold off.

My intent is not to dash your hopes or the hope of other women looking to be married, but when the Bible is clear about who is to do the looking, it is important to maintain your discipline. The devil is very crafty and the devil will use a crafty preacher to deceive a desperate woman. There are many women caught in the place of sidestepping the Word of God.

There is no excuse for abdicating the righteousness of God within you. You must prize who you are and you must prize above all else, your relationship with God.

In the Brian Carn situation (alleged lol), I can’t help but understand the fact that preachers that lead single and married, dissatisfied women to assume that there is going to be something more than a one time engagement in the bedroom, that a marriage will take place. For men and women to wrongfully assume that the word of a preacher is above the Word of God is a terrible sin. For which Hebrews 13:4 says that “adulterers and fornicators God WILL judge.”

Not every woman is a temple prostitute.

However, if the mand of Gawd shows up there, you have sex with him every time he is there, then there is no question that whoredom is your intent.

On the other side, there are a lot of women that will make or, they are already prepared to be a good wife. Women want to be loved, married, have a family, and enjoy life with her husband.

Pretty boy preachers that are players never make good husbands because once you give him some tail, you have to expect that he is seeing others in the bedroom around the country.

When they ask for your cell number, do you, as a single or married, saved, sanctified, Holy Spirit filled, tongue talking, Bible carrying womand of Gawd yield, or do you, in tears and pain, maintain your discipline?

Can the Lord count on you to decline and keep it moving in the Lord? Can the Lord count on you to be holy when it’s very tempting to be lulled into the bedroom? Can the Lord count on you to keep your mind stayed on Him? Can the Lord count on you not to go up to his hotel room before service, so that after service, you can have him sexually? Can the Lord count on you to call it sin!

It is placed in every woman the desire to be happy and loved by a good man. Sadly, some men are not that good at all. But there is someone out there that knows how to treat a woman right and stay faithful. Men, generally, are sex ready but they are not relationship, commitment, and responsibility ready. 

I’ll never forget it. When Zion Baptist Church underwent a change in pastorates, having assumed the pulpit of the late Reverend Dr. Benjamin James Lowry, Dr. M. Marquette Peace, Jr., on day one, set the record straight.

“I am a married man. I am not looking for another woman. I am the husband of ONE wife and I am satisfied.”

That’s integrity, ladies and gentlemen. Integrity of the highest order.

Dr. Peace clearly understood the sexual pitfalls of ministry and he fearlessly put the Word out to everyone on day one from the pulpit.

Adultery against God is higher violation than adultery with a woman. To be unfaithful to God guarantees that you will be unfaithful to your wife. I wish all the men of God, when they assume the powerful responsibility to be a leader with integrity, that they make such an announcement, and stick with it, would go a long way to preserving the integrity and sanctity of the call of God on a man’s life.

Equally as sad, some women are wedding ready but they are not marriage ready. 

Marriage ready in the sense that women want to completely have their way and a man does too.

The first few years of a marriage will be like sharks mating. While watching National Geography, when sharks mate, they bite with their teeth to hold the female shark in place while mating. Such is the case with the relational aspect of the marriage which potentially ends up as an irreconcilable difference.

The passion for sex is there but it is potentially lost when a man or woman in marriage spend more time jostling for dominance. That’s why egos have to be checked and both persons look to make the marriage work. A man is not a peacekeeper and neither is a woman. Peacekeepers are armed to keep both sides from fighting. A peacemaker is one that is willing to give in to a position to keep harmony in the house. However, the giving up of the position must never be detrimental to the entire relationship.

The only time a relationship becomes irreconcilable is when a childish person chooses not to reconcile. Baring adultery, there is no reason two persons cannot reconcile (see Ephesians 5:22-33).

Single ladies, I know that you are praying. God heard your prayers. When will He answer? We do not know when the manifestation of the answer will occur. When will brothers get it together? We don’t know.

But one thing is known.

Pretty boy preachers that look good and deceive you, start to run and flee from them. They are more trouble than it’s worth. It is not worth giving up the prize for the shame and stigma that comes with adultery and fornication.

The Bible says, “They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles, the will run and not be weary, they will walk and not faint.”

10 Deadly Sins Of Leaders Involved In Secret Sexual Sins. #4 Failure To Take Heed- P4CM

The aftermath of the former leaders of P4CM is disturbing but somewhat expected. As with all leaders that sinned, the killing field is filled with leaders that fail to take heed. We are all good at killing Goliath, but we are not that good at killing our inner Goliath.

Secret Sexual Sins.

Leaders are more susceptible to fall and relapse into Secret Sexual Sins because leaders live in the place of hiding behind their persona.

The anointing doesn’t cover a leader. The anointing is to break or destroy the yoke (see Isaiah 10:27; Luke 4:18, Acts 10:38).

Hence, the anointing eventually exposes a leader.

The mercy of God prevents what a leader rightfully deserve. Somewhere and somebody in heaven and or earth were praying for the mercy of God to cover them until they repent.

Accordingly, they have been restored, but just after 6 months?

Do not get me wrong.

Everyone of us doesn’t deserve a chance to be in the kingdom, let alone to be His minister. Though David was still king after Nathan exposed him, for the rest of David’s life, he was chased by his sons. He never finished well. The second king of Israel was finished because the secret sins in his heart, his real Goliath, was never defeated.

With returning to some measure of leadership and ministry, 6 months might be too fast if they are a little immature. Especially for young preachers. I do not believe that young preachers need to be imprisoned and exiled. It’s a judgment call of those to whom they’ve submitted themselves to.

In my experience as a pastor, I took a look back at what I was preaching while I was watching porn and masturbating. I observed an individual that didn’t know God. Never mind the message I was preaching at the time. It meant nothing to me because my only concern was to get church over with so that I can resume my sinful pastime. In looking back, I should have been fired. I violated the sacred duties of a man of God.

However, I wasn’t exposed but I knew that I was about to. I came clean about my life and exposed myself so that the Lord would have no story to tell. I never committed adultery except with my eyes and my heart in just level one sexual addiction. I should have taken time off to get myself together, however I didn’t. I kept on preaching.

You are saying that what I am saying is hypocritical, and I can’t agree with you more.

I don’t know if I ever would have returned to the pulpit had I relinquished the pastorate. I probably would have abdicated and never returned, but I am still doing what I am doing, but in a deliberate diminished capacity. No man that has ever sinned before God in a blatant manner ever return to any measure of grace and power. God never rewards unfaithfulness. It would be considered an endorsement and a deliberate slap in His face of loving grace.

At first, I looked to make a name for myself when I came clean but the Lord wasn’t pleased at all. Anytime you try to turn something into a personal profit, you are still in the hunt in another way. My book royalties along the lines of Secret Sexual Sins go right to the account of the local church until my passing should Jesus tarry. I do not do Come Clean Conferences. On a limited basis, I only had three conferences and that’s all. I do not anticipate having any more.

This blog is my outlet along these lines. Hoping that somewhere along the line, some sex crazed pastor would get it.

I read the P4CM (Passion For Christ Ministries) statement about the two pastors, really young pastors, that fell into Secret Sexual Sins.

While reading this statement, I can’t help but see that it was mixed in to the other “happenings” of their ministry. It wasn’t the headline but it also underscores the way we do things in the church. While this was serious, it deserves the attention of seriousness. When you read the rest of the statement, the aftermath underscores the powerful demonic pull that immoral sex has on the people in the church.

We treat the Lord and sanctification as an elective.

When we feel like it, we will be sanctified. The heart and mind of Samson is evident in the church. We’ve cast aside our consecration and the locks of our head were snipped off a long time ago. Tied between the posts, dare we ask God for just one more anointing? Just one more move of God?

It is not known whether these two were involved in a homosexual relationship or engaged in separate incidences, nonetheless, they fell and the fall out was tremendous and anticipated.

Here is the link to the aftermath of their stories.

http://www.p4cm.com/justin-chris-restored

When you read the aftermath, it does us no good to rehearse or to rehash the incident.

What we do need to understand is that the aftermath generally pans out to be the same because the demonic objective is the same.

To destroy the viability of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

As I have always stated by the Spirit of God, “Just because people fail the standard, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the standard, in and of itself has failed.”

What happens in the open is because of what happens in secret.

As long as what is done in the dark remains in the dark, we can outwardly look holy, but inside, we are no different than an open tomb or sepulcher with dead men’s bones. It’s very hypocritical and the license to say that we are no different than them is issued without rebuttal.

That’s why they can blatantly and boldly develop churches for LGBT and dare us to blink if we hypocritically object. 

Because in what is supposed to be the real Christ like church wherein righteousness dwells, they know that inside these churches are bona fide hypocrites. Now all churches are not like this but I know that some of you know that you can name a few churches and people that worship like saints and live like sinners, masquerading as false bearers of righteousness.

We have homosexual musicians, promiscuous preachers, and male and female temple prostitutes all up in the church.

Several years ago, another pastor fell into Secret Sexual Sins and committed adultery. A person was told that after it is all said and done, the church will see a decline in membership. It’s a common occurrence. Such was the case with P4CM. Fortunately, all was not loss. The remaining leaders exercised some measure of good judgment and wisdom, and merged with another local church. Sadly, others walked away from the church, but hopefully they didn’t walk away from Christ.

As is the case with some that do not understand that it’s all about maintaining your relationship with Christ, many of God’s people in the church I mentioned were so shell shocked that they wonder from place to place, or they do not attend church any more.

The failure of leaders to take heed, lest they fall sometimes fall on deaf ears. Many maintain their marriages because “pastor” maintains his, but as soon as the pastor makes a break for it, every man that doesn’t have his hope built on nothing less than Jesus blood, and righteousness, they walk away from their wives too.

That’s because of the two most destructive sex activities in the hearts and lives of men.

Porn and masturbation.

Again, this is not true of every pastor, however, a great number of pastors will have some involvement in porn and masturbation.

Sadly, too many young preachers watch their pastor too closely.

When you fail to take heed to your life and what is actually going on in your life, you begin to accept things that should have been rejected. Many preachers do not take heed to where their eyes travel and what their mind thinks during the course of the day. Then there is the accountability landscape that is a very difficult place to navigate. It’s when the help you need turns into a problem of manipulation and coercion. We are our brother’s keeper but we are not our brother’s Lord. The one thing that a brother needs is to be watched, but a brother also needs the compassionate confrontation that ministers grace and the Word unapologetically.

Psalm 119:9-10 says,

“How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your Word. With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wonder from Your commandments.”

Taking heed is not a Sunday morning service thing. Sunday is too late when you should have been taking heed during the week during weak moments. The dangers of falling into temptation are all around us and when we allow one sneak peak. One lapse of judgment in the smallest way, we open up a can of worms that can’t be returned.

Relapse happens in a small way and turns into a big mess.

Taking heed requires help. There are things that you cannot see that others readily see. Taking heed requires that you open up your life in measurable transparency. Taking heed requires that you have the ability to call someone when you need to. The minefield (mind field) of sexual immorality is not a small patch of ground. The field is too big and there are many trip wires along the way. The killing field is so vast and wide open that the fiery dart of the wicked one can pick you off easy.

The sniper’s nest is every where. If you are not taking heed to the Internet, the newspaper, the movies, anything can come at you and plant a thought in your mind. Before you know it, you are making preparation to sin. The very thing that you said you wouldn’t think of or do, you do it.

Taking heed requires not just deep prayer, but a deep Word to never violate your vow to keep yourself from sexual immorality.

Taking heed is work. Hard work. If you do not take heed, the devil will take advantage of your lack of vigilance and pick you off.

In the words of James Penn……“Is it worth it?”
