FALSE GRACE: A GOOD EXPLANATION WHY SECRET SEXUAL SINS IS EASY TO STAY IN

I came across a very fascinating interview with Sid Roth and Dr. Michael Brown.

They were discussing “false grace.”

First, false grace is taught as one that believes that the OT is no longer needed and because we are in the NT, grace completely replaced the law. This false grace doctrine may have similarities to the gospel of inclusion doctrine.

Anytime a doctrine leads away from sin and hell, it’s a false doctrine. Sin and hell, as taught by Jesus are consistent mainstay doctrines.

While the Lord Jesus came to set us free from sin, we must not continue in sin. Romans 6:1 is very clear. Paul said, “Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid!”

One of the most fascinating definitions that Dr. Brown gave on grace is the fact that in some places in the NT, grace, in the Greek, is unmerited favor, but in other places where grace was used, grace, in the NT, means God’s “empowerment” or enablement. It other words, God gives us supernatural ability to overcome temptation or other things that are against the nature of God.

That’s why when you hear “favor is not fair,” it’s about the prosperity mess………..I mean message, than about overcoming sin. Which is the original intent of grace to begin with.

The grace of God has more to do with developing the character of God by the help of the Holy Spirit than with getting away with sin.

The new birth is about a change of character or nature from sinner to a disciple of Christ.

For years, many of the faith teachers of the past erroneously taught that grace completely superseded the law. The law was fulfilled by the Lord Jesus when He died on the cross. Here is the reason. Many of these teachers believe that negative preaching or preaching about sin is no longer necessary because of grace. Coupled with this false grace teaching is the “righteousness of God” teaching. That’s because you are the righteousness of God, every promise of God is afforded you regardless of the way you live.

When a preacher preaches against sin, it is called negative preaching. The reason this is called negative preaching is because people do not want to hear about the sins they commit. Many believers run straight to Matthew 7:1 to run for cover.

But Proverbs 28:13 says,

“He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.”

You see, as long as your sins are not on the table, you feel safe to attend church. The seats stay filled. The moment that sin is discussed, it’s over. People will not go and the people there will not stay. That’s why positive confession and all that has more to do with making people feel good than correcting the areas that need correction.

Paul told Timothy. “Preach the Word! Be instant in season and out of season. Reprove, rebuke, and exhort with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine. For they will heap up for themselves teachers, having tickling ears. They will turn away from the truth and turn unto fables.”

False grace is one of these fables.

Grace never gives us permission to sin. Grace helps us to overcome sin.

To receive the correction about false grace is the greatest fear of preachers because it’s now about money. When people come, money come. When people leave, money leave. So you want to preach a positive, uplifting, feel good mess………….I mean message.

Tagging along with this mess…………I mean message, is that the Lord loves you.

And yes, He loves you unconditionally. His unconditional love was demonstrated in the sending of His Son to die for our sins to set us free from sin, so we would not spend eternity in hell. His love is further expressed when He tells you the truth about your thoughts, deeds, and speech.

He exposes your sins through a series of means and methods when we resist the Holy Spirit.

Hypocrisy in the pulpit and in the pew is very destructive. When a pastor spends time in porn and masturbation, and then attempt to preach the Word, he or she will never discuss sin. If they do discuss sin, it most often will be in the second or third person. The thing that I love about the Lord is that for every David, there is a Nathan. As long as we remain in sin, because the Lord loves us, He will do everything to help us come out of sin, but there comes a point where the grace of God comes to assist you.

We sin willfully because we falsely believe that we would not get exposed like David did but it doesn’t negate the fact that our number may come up. We have established a false sense of security that the Lord wouldn’t expose us. It is arrogance and pride that fools the mind into staying longer in sin than intended.

As the prophet Moses said, “Be sure your sin will find you out.”

It’s just a matter of time. The intent is not to embarrass us but to help us. As Paul said, “For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged so we wouldn’t be condemned with the world.”

When the Lord send the Word to correct, rebuke, chastise, and admonish us, it is not pleasant as Hebrews 12:3-17 tells us.

And when we are not confronted about sin, we could easily hide like Adam and Eve did in the Garden. The Lord demands that we expose ourselves and the deeds we do so that we could be corrected.

As long as we pretend that the grace of God covers our faults, people never get free and remain in bondage.

That’s why it is easy to stay in Secret Sexual Sins. We could watch porn and masturbate, make the excuse that we are under grace, and continue in sin like God is good with it.

The Bible tells us in Romans 8:1-2 that “There is no condemnation to those that are in Christ Jesus who do not walk after the flesh but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life, in Christ Jesus, has made me free from the law of sin and death.”

This is the reason behind why many people do not believe that repentance, holiness, sanctification, consecration, and righteousness is necessary.

However, we still need the foundation of the OT because there are tremendous examples of the NT writers where they used and quoted from the OT. If the OT weren’t necessary, they would not have quoted from it to anchor their points.

For instance, there are many men and women of God that commit adultery and they take a page out of David’s book. David, as you know committed adultery with Bathsheba and had her husband killed to cover his sin. In particular, many men hide behind David’s act and how God took away his sin. For the rest of David’s reign, he was chased by his own family. He wasn’t allowed to build the temple because he had much blood on his hands, including Uriah’s blood. He started as a shepherd boy, and ran for his life almost to the very end.

He was able to kill Goliath but the Goliath within him called sexual immorality, he could not kill.

The other thing that is interesting is that the sects of Judaism used the law to bring about “legalism.” Legalism is imposing stringent requirements upon the people that placed people in bondage as opposed to giving people liberty to serve the living God, free of sin. The whole intent of legalism is to glory in the works of the flesh apart from the enabling power of God to work the Word with the assistance of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 15 is a classic example of resolving legalism, along with the book of Hebrews.

No man could conquer sin on their own power or merits. We need to obey the Word of God with the help of the Holy Spirit.

The law cannot give life but grace through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus gives life.

LADY GAGA, PORN, & THE SPIRIT OF HARLOTRY

Hosea 4:11-13 says

“Harlotry, wine, and new wine enslave the heart.
My people ask counsel from their wooden idols,

And their staff informs them.
For the spirit of harlotry has caused them to stray,

And they have played the harlot against their God.
They offer sacrifices on the mountaintops,

And burn incense on the hills,
Under oaks, poplars, and terebinths,

Because their shade is good.

Therefore your daughters commit harlotry,
And your brides commit adultery.

On FB, a few Christian brothers mistakenly posted a concert photo of Lady Gaga and a man.

I know that some of you may have seen the photo but it is nothing more than soft core porn of a grotesque sexual position seen in millions of porn shots and hard or soft core porn around the world.

Without a thought, believers thought nothing of that photo and I know that many of them had to click a porn site to masturbate, or worse.

That’s why if you are a professed believer in the Lord, you must “abstain from every appearance of evil.”

You are not strong enough to look at this photo.

QUIT PLAYING!

Strength is not found when you are face to face with any demonic end time seductress with lust in your heart. Strength is found in abstaining by the grace of God. Instead of walking into the minefield, you need to find a way around it or avoid it altogether. All you need to do is look in the natural at what mines could do. The countless individuals, soldiers and civilians know the power of a minefield after the fact.

There’s no doubt in my mind what I would have done. When the temptation is always there, you need to obey the Holy Spirit, let Him take you by the hand, and find a way out. Thanks be to God, the Lord is a deliverer.

There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain.

There is power in the blood of Jesus that broke every chain.

There is no question in my mind that after seeing that photo, many men, and perhaps women, were aroused and pursued even more salacious pictures to gratify themselves or act out in sexually immoral ways.

This is what happens when we expose ourselves to the world’s mindset.

The smart believer, if exposed to this level of porn would employ 1 Corinthians 10:13 and 2 Corinthians 10:4-5.

Remember, this is darkness attacking the light within you. This is the devil making a move to immediately snatch the seed from your heart. This is the devil taking advantage of your unwillingness to move to the good ground. To keep you trapped in temptation, cares, riches, and pleasures of this life.

If your intent is lust, when your eyes behold this, darkness enters your body and your whole body is dark. If you resist this picture, and any other sexually explicit picture you are keeping the darkness from entering into the body.

You are walking in the light as He is in the light.

Pornography is a multi billion dollar industry and even in a bad economy, it is increasing every year.

Few understand that sexual immorality deadens the heart and mind to God. Porn adds to the deadness because it is the enticing pictures that lure suspecting men from one level of sin to the next. Perversion knows no boundaries. Again, porn is just an accelerant. Sooner or later, a person dealing with porn and masturbation will stop playing with fire and take fire to his bosom and be burned.

The whole point of sexual immorality is to keep you from God. You drown in it. In most cases, men refuse the rescue efforts of the Life-Savior.

There are many men that refuse to escape. I’ve been there. I know what it is like to look outside an open prison door and refuse to walk out because the pleasures of this life, deceptively, was better than freedom. I was fooled into thinking that porn and masturbation was good. That it was ok for me to engage in self sex, getting off at every chance I get, just to feel good.

It was a dopamine drug addiction that my mind couldn’t do or live without. My life revolved around when I would get to bed to do it all over again, and again, and again.

Pornography is false sex. A fantasy world that has a mind of its own. It’s destructive forces reaches into homes and in most cases, irreparable harm is done to the wife.

Pornography is a direct assault upon the institution of a marriage.

Marriage between one man and one woman is a mirror reflection of the relationship we are to have with the Lord. So ultimately, porn is a direct assault of a man’s relationship with God. As long as a man relates to himself sexually, he deceives himself into believing that he no longer need to be close or intimate in prayer to God. Or he will fool himself in prayer and think that he is close to God while he is closer to sin.

Pretend sex and pretend worship, simultaneously, can make a man pretend he is close to God, not realizing that he is closer to the devil.

Paul said this about marriage in Ephesians 5:25-33.

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.

So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.

“For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.”

So anything opposite of this God ordained intent of marriage is obviously perversion.

Sexual immorality is an act of selfishness.

When a man loses his intimate relationship with God, the place where you may find the man is in the bed of sexual immorality.

This is the spirit of harlotry that is prevalent throughout the world and in the house of worship.

Harlotry, wine and new wine enslave the heart.

Harlotry will lead a person stray.

The Amplified Bible of verse 12, latter portion says

“…and they have played the harlot, withdrawing themselves from subjection to their God.”

That’s the whole point of a man that is not willing to come from the prison house. For freedom from sin demands that you be subject to God. The absolute dominion of God. Freedom from Secret Sexual Sins, demands nothing short of having God over your life.

The pleasures of this world and the demons that facilitate sin will deceive you into thinking that God doesn’t want you to have any pleasure.

When God created Adam and Eve, He placed them in the Garden of Eden (Pleasure). The word “Eden” means “Pleasure.”

The Bible tells us in Psalm 16:11, “You will show me the path of life, In Your presence is fulness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures evermore.”

When the Lord Jesus was resurrected from the dead, He was seated at the right hand of the throne of God. As long as we stay in His presence, the world’s satisfaction can never come close to the satisfying presence of the Lord. As long as we look to please ourselves, we will never be satisfied. Psalm 23:1 says, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.”

As long as we go to Jesus and trust Him, we will never enter into want. As long as we do not trust Him and trust the devil more, we will always be in want. The devil will never allow you to be satisfied. Even after false sex with porn, you are robbed because you didn’t have that woman or man, or both in your bedroom. So what does the devil do? He offers you to take it to the next level.

This is where the risks will always be greater than the rewards of sin.

Paul said in Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

When you work for satan and sin, you will get paid.

There is always the possibility of acquiring STDs including HIV/AIDS. There is always the risk of getting a person pregnant or because you are a woman, you risk getting pregnant. Sin’s wages always pay death. Even if you were able to escape, by God’s loving grace, the consequences of sin, your heart was convicted by the Holy Spirit that you’ve violated the Word of God.

Consequences happens as a matter of time. Eventually, your “fortunes” will run out. The bolder you get, the more risks you take. The spirit of harlotry will take you from one wine to new wines. You increase in debauchery because you assume that you are invincible. That you are immune from consequences. The last test came back negative or clean. There is no sense in changing your wicked ways.

The spirit of harlotry takes you from one room to the next. Like spinning a revolver with a bullet in one chamber. You put the weapon to your head and pull the trigger.

CLICK!!

Nothing happened.

You spin it. Pull the trigger.

CLICK!!

Nothing happened, again. I must be on a string of good fortune.

You spin it. Pull the trigger.

CLICK!!

Nothing happened. This is the bomb. I must be good.

You spin it. Pull the trigger.

CLICK!!

Nothing happened. I know that I need to stop, but why. This feels sooooo good!!!

You spin it. Pull the trigger.

POW!!!!

You thought the condom worked. You thought that he or she, or both were clean. They lied or you took a chance.

It became one chance too many because the pleasure overruled wisdom and your worst fear becomes your deadly fate.

The spirit of harlotry looks down at his victim and says…

“Alas, my prey. Let me see. You are the billionth soul on my list that didn’t listen to God. Sooner or later you would die in my hands.”

Young Pastors, Rick Ross, Lil’ Wayne, What’s The Big Issue? – What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Tetaun Moffett, co host of EXTV with G. Craige Lewis put out a YouTube video of a radio interview that were discussing this issue about a 26 year old pastor who went to a rap concert featuring Rick Ross.

Pastor Rodney Wills, according to various news reports, was the youngest preacher to ever pastor the 109 year old, Mt. Salem Baptist Church, in North Carolina.

Prior to his installment as pastor, he was preaching there for about 4 years.

Mind you that there were many young preachers that started out pastoring a church in their teen years. Looking at the ministry of Jesus, His ministry started at the age of 30 and in three years, His earthly ministry impacted thousands, if not millions of lives just in the land of Israel alone. I am not saying that everyone should start at thirty, however, we see that maturity goes a long ways.

In Biblical hermeneutics, in particular, Biblical numerology, 30 is the number of maturity. Levites weren’t allowed to enter into service until the age of 30. They were forced into retirement at the age of 50, serving only 20 years. So maturity goes a long ways.

Paul warned Timothy “To flee youthful lusts.”

Evidently, young preachers today didn’t get that memo.

According to news reports, Deacon Miles Langley said, “We cannot have our leader supporting people of this world who are tearing down the kingdom of God.”

Pastor Rodney Wills was warned nine months earlier about attending a Lil’ Wayne concert.

Deacon Langley also said “We cannot have a pastor praising the world one minute then praising the Lord the next. Period.”

The radio show host, John A Young and Kevin Swann on WHOV 88.1 of Hampton Roads, aired their show in an apparent defense of Pastor Wills. They said some things that brought into question their relationship with the Lord, if there is any relationship with the Lord in their lives in the first place. It seems to me that these young preachers and immature preachers and believers will not take the Bible and the times we are living in very seriously.

These radio hosts took a page out of the defense attorney’s book.

Put the evidence on trial.

The show hosts kept going around in circles about whether it was right to fire this pastor or whether the deacon went through proper channels, and church protocols. Comparing it to the trial that took place with the Sanhedrin prior to the Roman examination and ultimate crucifixion of our Lord Jesus.

Additionally, the hosts and I believe another young immature pastor pretty much argued that pastors have a right to be entertained.

Well, it seems that these young and inexperienced preachers do not know what it means to be separated, sanctified, and holy before God to minister in righteousness and holy living.

The qualifications for being a Bishop or an overseer as recorded in Acts 20:27-31, 1 Timothy 3:1-7, and 1 Peter 5:1-4, could be taken across the board for anyone desiring to be in the ministry (service). Once you accept the divine invitation to preach for the Lord, there is a further separation that must take place. Rebellious can’t tell rebellion what to do. The line must be drawn when it comes to the kinds and types of “entertainment” preachers might expose themselves to.

For instance, there were many preachers on FB that showed a provocative picture of Lady Gaga during a recent concert. Sadly, the devil smiles when we try to make a point with a provocative picture because all we are doing is aiding and abetting a felon. We are providing a sanctuary for demonic activity. We are spreading evil.

We can talk about how wrong it is, but to show the picture is nothing short of pornography.

Having been in the ministry since September 7, 1979, I wish that I were a lot more disciplined. I could have avoided the defiled pit of porn and self gratification. However, having learned the lessons of abstaining from every appearance of evil, learning what not to watch, and what I feed on spiritually, these lessons of grace and deliverance, learned the hard way, could have saved me a lot of headaches.

Tears mean nothing. It’s when the heart realizes that you hurt God that godly sorrow works repentance, leading to salvation. True repentance calls it quits with sin. If you are not ready to quit sin, you will never learn true repentance. All I was doing was revolving around and fooling myself into thinking that God was fine. He wasn’t. He demanded that I leave the devil and sin.

It took a long time to learn this lesson. But November 2008 would be the date of full deliverance from porn and masturbation from porn. It took another year to break the power of masturbation, with several relapses into masturbation because I loved sin more than God.

Finally, the Lord said, “You must put this all together or you are still a hypocrite.”

And that’s the one that kicked it to the curb completely.

When you are young, Paul’s admonishment to “Flee youthful lusts…” is appropriate for today.

Then there are a lot of preacher’s wives that see no problem with watching chick flicks with skin and mild and or blatant pornographic sex. Nothing short of soft porn.

Joshua said, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

The wife is not to set the tone of what to watch. If that movie contains provocative sexual overtones, husbands, if she insists on watching it, let her turn into a pillar of salt.

One brother used, rather abused 1 Corinthians 6:12 where Paul said,

All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful.”

Again, a good student of context would complete reading the entire verse and never quote a part to suit one’s own sinful needs.

All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.”

When you pay for a movie and watch it, you are under its power. If you are under the Lordship of Jesus, you will abstain from the appearance of evil.

Few young preachers understand that the spirit of antichrist is already in the world. People are under the spell of rebellion and witchcraft like Saul and the children of Israel. Or when the ark of the covenant was taken by the Philistines because Eli, the overweight and physically blind high priest would not discipline and kill his sons because of perverse sexual activity in the temple.

With this young preacher going to a Rick Ross and Lil’ Wayne concert, there is no question that sexually provocative lyrics were used. Any one going to these concerts will have scantily clad women dancing provocatively. As a pastor, your reputation as a man of God is compromised. Your relationship with the Lord is compromised.

Let’s go to the measure of where the compromise exists.

There is the strong possibility that porn and masturbation is part of his life. When you attend these “concerts” the realm and atmosphere is sexually charged. Demon power is strong and unrelenting. They will feed into your mind sexual immorality until you yield. Whether you are married or not, somewhere along the line, you will attempt to let off sexual tension. If you are married, and you have watched porn before, already, you view your wife as sub-pretty and below beautiful.

You make a move to remember what you observed in that concert. The hot one that looked into your eyes as you stood there, gazing and drooling. The sensual music got you into the right mood. One thing leads to another. You see another hot woman and another. Just like on the Internet, you keep clicking and saving the image in your depraved mind.

Folks, this is what every man goes through. Having been in that world of porn, I know what I am talking about.

Perhaps, you, as a pastor, never watched porn or never gratified yourself in masturbation, yet, you find yourself at these concerts. You think that you are strong enough to withhold yourself. Lines that you say that you would not cross. Demons will wait you out, my pastor friend, Pastor Roger Jamison of Sword Of the Spirit Tabernacle in Brooklyn, NY told me.

You will say “no.”

But every man has a breaking point.

You think that you can’t be broken.

“Take heed, lest you fall into temptation,” said Paul.

The devil will keep on bringing that offer until you take it. All it takes is one moment of relapse. One slip of the eyes. One thought that mesmerize your mind and heart. One! Just one.

These preachers and radio hosts thinks that sin is innocent. In an article about it, one person made up an excuse that perhaps this young preacher was trying to get a little “experience” so that he would seem relevant to the youth in his church. To be able to minister to them on their level.

This is a lie of the devil.

There are many that believe that Jesus sat with sinners just to hang out.

Look at the passage carefully. The entire passage.

Matthew 9:10-13.

Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, “Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

When Jesus heard that, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice. ’For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”

You see, many will just talk about verses 10-12 and leave out verse 13.

What does verse 13 say?

He sat around sinners to do what?

What did Jesus said He is to do?

“CALL SINNERS TO REPENTANCE.

I find it amazing that when you are dealing with LGBT, they know the Bible like the devil does. They say only a few verses that matter most to them but when it comes to the real issue that confronts their sin, they don’t even come close to quoting that part. Much like many young, immature, wet behind the ear pastors and preachers that think that they could justify sin like being able to hold their liquor.

I say again, from what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 10:12,

“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.”

There are many young, immature pastors and preachers that believe they can stand there and take it all in, and not be affected. Few of us understand the absorption of the human spirit.

Notice what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 6:22-23.

“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”

The window to your heart is your eyes. If you, with intent, look at dark things, your body will be full of darkness. If you, with intent, look at things that of the light, your body will be full of light. So when you go to these concerts, there is no light there. You are allowing darkness to have a home in your body. This is what demons want. Bodily expression. Demon possession is not only about foaming at the mouth, and being disheveled in appearance.

You could look clean, watch porn, and be just as possessed.

There is no excuse for any person that profess to know the Lord to witness perversion of any sort.

Deacon Langley is to be commended for taking action so as not to further allow darkness to come from the sacred pulpit. Thus sparing the flock of God perversion entering into the hearts and minds of the people.

Take a look at this YouTube video and judge for yourselves.

LGBT: The Decriminalization Of The Sin Of Homosexuality

As you can see, the sin of homosexuality is a tremendous wave of perversion. Remember the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience wouldn’t have it any other way.

Once something is decriminalized, something must be criminalized.

We all know that certain states and nations deemed the act of homosexuality a crime. The extremes of this law is very debatable. However, everyone knows that homosexuality is a sin. To eliminate the sting associated with homosexuality, there has to be a deescalation of the sin.

Legislation has been passed to remove the sting. So much so that in many places, including in some local churches, homosexuality is accepted as a normal lifestyle.

However, the Bible is still the standard of righteousness and holiness. Without the Bible, we would permit everything in sight. God’s Word is obviously clear about this sin. However, there is a concerted effort to, not just refute the Bible but to eliminate it entirely.

There are preachers all over the United States that capitulated. They have permitted the sin of homosexuality to dwell in the music ministers that play for them. Some of these pastors are bisexual. When the standard bearers turn their backs on God and His Word, there is nothing left in the local church as far as the standard of righteousness is concerned.

In fact, the pillar and ground of the truth is reduced to rubble and pebbles of lies.

When the church writes off the sin of homosexuality as not a sin at all, in the minds of others, it gives the false sense of security that the sin of homosexuality is no longer a crime against God and His Word.

So, what takes place afterwards?

The criminalization of righteousness.

When you hear folks that profess to know Jesus say, “Do not judge!,” they have criminalized righteous judgment and decriminalized sin.

You see, it is not enough to give LGBT rights. The voice of righteousness must be silenced. The devil wouldn’t have it any other way. Government, with LGBT puppet strings, will utilize legislative intimidation and Gestapo tactics to silence the voice of truth. We have become enemies because we unhesitatingly tell the truth in the love of Jesus. They call telling the truth hate speech. No. It’s the “We’d rather tell you the truth” speech.

Daniel, and the three Hebrew boys proved that it pays not to be careful.

The devil has put it out that if the voices of righteousness choose to speak “Thus says the Lord” they must be penalized.

The intent is to instill fear in other rogue preachers that violate the king’s edict.

During the latter end of the Obama campaign, the president sent Eric Holder, Attorney General and other IRS officials to impose fear in pastors that tell people from the pulpit who to vote for. They’ve threatening to take away their tax exempt status and they have intimidated other groups afterwards of refusing to give such status to Christian conservative groups that pray to the Father in Jesus name’ about the Obama administration.

By the way, you are already tax exempt as a church. No need to file these federal papers requesting it.

Folks, I am not in the least bit intimidated then or now.

Send the dogs and firehoses.

I will not speak anything before anyone but the truth of the Word of God. Some will say that it is easy to say that on a blog, but you just wait.

First, persecution is part of the business. If you are not saying anything to offend anyone, you are a cheap or expensive suit preacher. And if you can’t say anything that God said, you weren’t called to preach to begin with. You are just in this to make money and look good on Sunday as a nice preacher wearing soft clothing.

Speaking of soft cloth preachers, 45 pastors in NJ endorsed Cory Booker, the Klanned Abortionhood endorsed/LGBT endorsed, president Obama endorsed, Cory Booker for the NJ Senate seat vacated by the death of Senator Frank Lautenburg.

45 pastors that you thought loved God more than sin. They will argue that it’s for the good of NJ.

Well not when it comes to sin. When it comes to all sin, you better not be found on the wrong side of God. In this life, His mercy is everlasting. When you die in your sins, there is no mercy. Abandon any hope for mercy.

The Sundays before the election, I told the congregation that if you vote for Obama, you are in league with the will of the devil on abortion and the sin of homosexuality, and you are an enemy of God.

Are homosexuals criminals?

Absolutely.

Criminals against the Word of God and God Himself.

So are adulterers, fornicators, liars, sodomites, drunkards (see 1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

All are under sin and that makes us all criminals as deemed by God, because of Adam’s transgression (see Romans 5:12).

According to Romans 3:23, “…all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

We are all criminals until we repent and receive forgiveness, and are born again by the Holy Spirit.

Sin is a deliberate act to defy God and His Word.

Only Jesus, the perfect Mediator, could set us free and the Father complete exonerates all who come to Him through His only Son.

The moment we decide that we are done with sin is the moment we realize that God is righteous and we are sinners. After we repent (change our minds), and receive forgiveness, the Holy Spirit comes into our lives, clean us up, and gives us a new life in Christ.

“Therefore, if any man be in Christ he is a new creature, old things have passed away, behold, all things become new.”

This is also called “justification.”

Paul said “Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”

To be justified means to be made innocent of all charges even though we were guilty of sin. The Lord does this freely because of the price that Jesus paid on the cross. By offering Himself as a sacrifice for the sins of man, we can be made free of the crime of sin. We can be forgiven of all the crimes of sin we’ve done.

At this point, the world is on a perilous course to criminalize righteousness.

There is a lawsuit in the UK that will impose the church to marry homosexuals by force. Should this law be passed in England, it will be sure to make its way here to the US. All over the United States, pastors are taking a stand against LGBT.

The Civil Rights Movement was hijacked (take arbitrarily or by force) and now we have pedophiles looking to have government decriminalize sexual molestation of little innocent boys and girls. LGBT is not satisfied that they can get married. Like in the UK, they want to force pastors to marry homosexuals.

This insidious ploy is harassment against a righteous institution. LGBT is looking to obtain legal permission to marry but also to impose that righteous institutions perform sacerdotal functions under legislative coercion.

Let me be one of many to tell you that I will not marry any homosexuals.

Prevailing Word Ministries was called by God. Not by practicing homosexuals, people that support the sin of homosexuality, and politicians that support the sin of homosexuality.

We will not bow to satan, sin, and to the children of satan. Jesus is Lord over Prevailing Word Ministries. We are located at 770 Fulton Street, corner of Adelphi in Brooklyn, NY. We are an EX-GAY AFFIRMING local church.

Come if you like, to hear the Word of God lived and preached.

We do perform weddings.

For one male and one female only.

We do not mind if homosexuals come to get delivered. We will not turn you away but we will offer the saving grace of Jesus Christ. We will not point you out or ridicule you. We will not berate or ostracize you. We will not treat you as second class citizens. We will pray for you to be delivered from the destructive influence of the prince of darkness. We will pray that God will deliver you from the sin of homosexuality.

If you are an American, you are not a second class citizen if you practice homosexuality. In fact, look around you. There are many Americans that practice adultery, fornication, porn, masturbation, and bisexuality, yet, they are still American citizens.

Marriage to one male and one female is a mandate ordained by God. Homosexuality was never sanctioned by God. To criminalize an ordinance of God and decriminalize the sin of homosexuality is a clear and present danger to the United States and the world.

In what way is homosexuality a clear and present danger?

1. HIV/AIDS and other STDs associated.

2.The constant decline of births which comes from one male and one female in marriage. The continued sustaining of the human race.

We fear and obey God rather than obey the perverted laws of man.

Until Jesus comes, we will be right here to help people be free and refute the error of man’s ways with the Holy Word of God.

LGBT: NJ Governor Chris Christie And The Ban On Gay Conversion Therapy

When it comes to conversion therapy, we all know that therapy, absent of God and His Word, is man’s way of dealing with spiritual and mental issues. The Lord is Lord of all flesh. He knows how to deal with our internal issues that ultimately is expressed externally. When it comes to sin, the only remedy is the power of God. The gospel of Jesus Christ (see Romans 1:16).

With that being said, we now have two states that ban gay conversion therapy.

California and New Jersey.

Governor Christie signed the bill “reluctantly.”

Apparently, he and president Obama had a long talk when the president inspected the damage when Sandy came through. Seems like they talked about other issues too. It’s bad enough that this governor is looking to legalize marijuana use for medical reasons. Now he signs a law against gay conversion therapy. Which everyone knows is a precursory law to suppress the church from teaching or preaching that homosexuality is a sin, and that only the power of God can deliver to the uttermost, those bound in the sin of homosexuality.

We all know that this is part of the LGBT agenda to go after the church to silence the Bible and the power of God. It’s a great thing that they cannot write legislation to stop God. Not that He could be stopped but this is just another frustrating move of the devil and his children to silence righteousness.

Once again, it’s the deliberate criminalization of righteousness and the decriminalization of sin.

Sin is a crime against God and His holy Word. Sin is the deliberate, intentional act, thought, or speech against God.

The devil knows that he can’t get at God and His Word so in a very dumb way, the prince of the power of the air is moving in the children of disobedience and wrath to craft ways to stop the power of God operating in the children of God.

The Holy Spirit will continue His work in the earth to convict the world of sin.” The Holy Spirit will continue, unabated, to wash and regenerate every person that repents and places their full trust in Jesus for salvation. The power of the blood by the eternal Spirit will continue to speak better things of redemption, cleansing, and victory over ALL SINS, including the sin of homosexuality. The Father will abundantly pardon as He said He would do in His Word, upon your repentance. The blood will never lose its power. The name that is above every name, the name of Jesus, along with the Holy Spirit, will continue His dominance over all dark spirits in the realm of the spirit.

Freedom over every enslaving yoke is given. “Therefore, if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

So, people of God, we have nothing to fear of LGBT and their laws. God knows how to work and break every chain.

The way this law is set up sounds like the Muslim world that persecute their own people should they come to Christ. Human atrocities such as beheading, mutilations, and other human rights atrocities. In their Koran, they put out the death threat on any Muslim for converting to Christ.

The Lord never prevents anyone from leaving Him, and He never uses force to keep people in His kingdom. However, should a person defect from Christ on their own choice, they are condemned by their own decision. The Lord will never force a person to get saved and the Lord will never force a person to stay saved. The devil does quite the opposite and will lash out at anyone that claim to be saved from the sin of homosexuality.

Their flawed argument against salvation is that homosexuals do not believe a person is saved according to the Bible. They believe that to attempt to change a person does more harm than good. This is a lie from the devil. The harm is done in sin, not salvation and righteousness. The harm is spiritual, mental, and physical.

Governor Christie, who claims to be a practicing Catholic, believes that homosexuality is not a sin.

Well, thank God that the Bible is always right and those that do not know the Bible are always wrong.

People that are not saved are not competent or qualified to tell anyone what is sin and what isn’t sin.

Politicians that aren’t believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and disciples of the teachings of Jesus, and the Bible are not competent or qualified to tell anyone what is sin, and what isn’t sin.

Folks ought to leave the business of preaching and teaching the Word of God to those that are saved. That means they know the Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Folks ought to leave the preaching and teaching of the Word of God to those who walk in the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Folks ought to leave the preaching and teaching of the Word of God to those whom the Lord specifically called into the ministry, were tested by competent ministers, and ordained for the gospel ministry.

LGBT and Governor Christie fail in all of the above.

They do not know the Lord. They do not know the Bible. Therefore, they are incompetent and unqualified in the gospel ministry.

The Bible is clear about sin. The Bible is clear about the remedy of sin. The Bible is clear about the love of God for sinners. The Bible is clear about heaven and hell. What LGBT and other state governments want to do is suppress the truth and eliminate the preachers of the truth. If the truth could be suppressed and preachers prohibited, sin can run freely. However, the Lord has His hand stretched out to the world and He is Faithful and Just to forgive and offer eternal life to those that repent.

I am not offering any advice.

I am saying that government need to stay out of the business of righteousness. Keep out of the Bible and stop oppressing preachers.

Of course, they will say that we preachers need to stay out of their business of establishing sin in the lives of people. We refuse to do so because we were called to preach the gospel to the nations. Preachers cannot force anyone to get saved. Preachers cannot force people to walk in righteousness. Nonetheless, we are still charged to preach the Word of God whether folk want to hear it or not.

To impose laws to suppress the preaching of the Word of God is nothing more than totalitarianism.

It is like we are taking a page out of the Soviet Union.

As long as there is breath in our lungs and blood running warm in our veins, we will obey God, preach the Word of God, and should anyone repent and believe the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, we stand ready to disciple them in the teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ, to walk holy and righteous just as Jesus did.

LGBT: Deliberately Hijacking Civil Rights

On August 28,1963, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King made one of the most profound speeches in history.

The “I Have A Dream” speech.

History will reveal that Dr. King preached this message before August 28, 1963.

The last time he would preach this message, it would be the one that would ring on every mountain side.

Five years later, Dr. King would talk about “I’ve been to the mountain top.”

Sadly, he was assassinated the day after his prophetic declaration.

Little did he realize that further down the road off the mountain top, LGBT would later hijack the Civil Rights message.

I was four months shy of my 2nd birthday at the time Dr. King made that remarkable speech, but thank God that it was recorded.

Looking back at these historical words, we see the dream unfold.

“And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and ever city, we will be able speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestant and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

Pathetically, LGBT had a dream too.

Please note that no where do we see “sexual orientation” in Dr. King’s speech.

The deliberate hijacking of August 28, 1963 is a further blatant attempt by LGBT to suppress the true meaning of Civil Rights. It also underscores the deliberate grand larceny of a day that has more to do about race than the sin of homosexuality.

No where in this speech do we see anything that has to do with the sin of homosexuality. It further underscores the desperation on the part of LGBT to legitimize the sin of homosexuality.

It is amazing that LGBT, without hesitation, twisted and convoluted the true meaning of Civil Rights. It’s as if they believe that they have a right to rewrite history. So much so that these words and the life of MLK now mean that to speak against the sin of homosexuality is on par with racism, discrimination, and bigotry.

A dangerous precedent has emerged.

The criminalization of righteousness and the decriminalization of sexual sins.

Isaiah 5:20 says,

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter
!

What crime, you ask?

The crime against God’s righteous and holy standard.

Sadly, the current African American generation, also known as the descendants of slaves, never seen it coming. Instead of seeing sin for what it is, hook, line, and sinker, they’ve accepted the bait, the hook is firmly in the mouth of the fish, and the majority of Black people are in the frying pan of HIV/AIDS. You do not have to have the disease in your body to be destroyed. All you need to do is agree with the sin of homosexuality and it is no different until you get healed by the redeeming power of Jesus.

Not to mention the obvious fact that the systematic destruction of the African American child in the womb called abortion by the hands of Planned Abortionhood, makes this two pronged death attack a clear and present danger to all African Americans.

So far, the NAACP, and other former Civil Rights organizations (you’ve read it right FORMER), is complicit and culpable in handing our unborn generation and current generation a bunch of lies to systematically and deliberately kill us off.

The truth is too much for many to bear.

President Obama can’t handle the truth. Because if he could handle the truth, he would make his eight years in office, the most productive years of his presidency to right the wrongs that currently decimate our communities.

At the root of all lies is the devil himself. After fighting to gain any kind of rights to live free, these rights are now perverted and without question, we remain the targets of demonic destruction until we are made new in Christ.

That’s why the world doesn’t mind if we prosper, have fun in church, jump shout and scream and call it the Holy Ghost. All the while, we are listening to destructive Hip Hop music, clubbing, watching porn and masturbating. We are bringing our out of control behaviors into the house of the Lord and the pastors are joining in the party, if not leading it.

We have forsaken the Lord and the Lord, being true to His Word, has departed some of these houses. We have allowed Oprah Winfrey’s Life Class to indoctrinate us and sadly, no one is taking a stand against it. It is clear that we cannot trust most of our African American TV preachers because we have yet to see them address these atrocities and bring to bear the Word of God on their own lives.

The money that they are bringing in transcends preaching and living the Word of God the way that the Head of the Church intended.

Then there is the small local church that never grows to the size of a mega church that have pastors that live and preach any kind of way. The people live the way they want to live and the Lord is not pleased.

Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;

But happy is he who keeps the law.”

The Amplified Bible says,

“Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man] —blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he.”

Notice in parenthesis “no redemptive revelation of God.”

When there is a deliberate exodus of the redemption of God, you are literally blind. You can’t see your way out of things, much less see what is coming.

When you are involved in sin, you can’t see because of the darkness in your heart. Therefore, this darkness that abides in us makes us incompetent and disqualified to speak the Word of life into our communities.

Now look back up at the latter end of Dr. King’s speech. Notice that sexual orientation is no where listed. From top to bottom, it is about the blatant racism that exists in a society that claims to be the land of the free and the home of the brave. In a society that looks at all men as equal.

Since when sexuality is a race? Since when sexuality is an orientation? If anything, the sin of homosexuality is just a bedroom sexual sin that somehow ascended to race or a class of people. Sadly, some black folk are not as smart and took the lie of the devil without questioning it. No different than Eve being deceived.

Are we that ignorant? Sure enough. So ignorant that if Bible believing, God fearing African Americans speak up against this hijacking, we are given a history lesson by proponents of LGBT and they are not qualified to give any lessons on Civil Rights.

Americans are free to do whatever they want to do. But when you want to raise a sexuality to the level of Civil Rights, it is just another means of perverting the original intent of Civil Rights to begin with.

So what we see here is another means of oppressing Black people. First, steal Civil Rights and then, hijack the drum major of justice. Let me add something that is of tremendous importance.

There is no question that Dr. King used some of Gandi’s material on non violence, however, some of Gandi’s propaganda goes cross wise with the Word of God.

Moses didn’t need the magicians of Egypt. As you well know, Moses was taught all the stuff about the Egyptians, including their magic but the Lord liberated Israel with ten plagues that countered everything that the Egyptian magicians had.

God needed no help from Gandi to speak into the heart and conscience of the American political system.

Paul said to Timothy…”Preach the Word!…”

All you need to do is preach the Word.

We are not looking for another Martin Luther King. We are looking for preachers of the gospel to assume the watch, stand on their post, and preach the Word. We need preachers everywhere to stand and live the Word in the face of compromise.

Your preacher friends will not like what you are doing.

In fact, they will ridicule you.

They will “preach” to you that you need not go against the establishment. They will warn you that they will walk away from you. They will remind you of the side your bread is buttered. In other words, they will no longer invite you to preach in their churches. They will stonewall you, blackball you, disenfranchise you, disassociate you, and ostracize you.

Sometimes, the rough side of the mountain is your only way. Most definitely, you have to make a break from the crooked plains of compromised preachers. If you are not outraged at anyone that stoop so low as to hijack the Civil Rights movement, you are still bound as a slave.

A slave to sin and a slave to LGBT and Planned Abortionhood.

On August 28, 2013, when people are uninvited because of their stand against the sin of homosexuality like Pastor Donnie McClurkin, it should have been a wake up call for African Americans that even our own people that are free of the sin of homosexuality would be discriminated against because of his declaration of freedom of the sin of homosexuality.

For freedom from sin is true freedom.

The fear of LGBT Is that others would make for the exits of the sin of homosexuality.

“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free ’?”

Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

If you really want to know the truth, you do not go to the lies that have held you bound. You go to the ones that were freed. You do not have to commit sin and remain in bondage. This is what this is about.

A white man once said that black preachers are some of the most powerful preachers on the earth. Yet, we see no power because black preachers are bound as a slave of sin. We see black preachers permitting sin in their lives with no fear of God before their eyes. We see black preachers still sitting outside in the outhouse instead of taking their rightful place in Christ in the house.

Until we exchange places. From the outhouse to the house of God in righteousness, the slavery mentality will remain. All according to the devil’s plan.

I too have a dream.

That one day black folk will wake up.

That we would no longer accept the lies of the world spewed out by LGBT. That we would see that the plan of the enemy is to destroy us, one by one. But his plan cannot work because of Jesus.

I too have a dream. That we would no longer allow sin to shape our communities.

For it is only by the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus that every enslaving yoke of bondage is broken.

His blood is enough to break every chain.

By the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ, this dream can be fulfilled when a person comes into a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is only by the blood of the sinless Lamb that we can be free at last!

EX-GAYS: The Un-Invite of Pastor Donnie McClurkin…….Again

There is a serious full court press to suppress the testimony of ex-homosexuals. It doesn’t matter if you are high profile or a person that remain to themselves. If you are an ex homosexual, you are a clear and present danger to the agenda of LGBT.

If you weren’t a threat or a clear and present danger, they wouldn’t say anything.

Pastor DL Foster of Witness Freedom Ministries called this “The ugly face of gay hate.”

Elder Raymond King of Securing Hope Ministry said…”Those who have been delivered from same-gender attraction are the Achilles-heel of the homosexual rights platform that’s based on this lie that once GLBT, always GLBT.”

My colleagues are saying “Tolerate our homosexuality, but we hate and refuse to tolerate your deliverance” and “Once a slave to the sin of homosexuality, always a slave to the sin of homosexuality.”

Pastor Donnie McClurkin, who pastors Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, NY, not New Jersey, as the Christian Post put out in error, was abruptly uninvited to attend and share in song at the Washington DC event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington DC.

Their blog wrote a comprehensive scenario that underscores a growing trend of the LGBT community laying claims on the late Civil Rights Leader, the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

For the last few years, we have seen a dangerous trend of pursuing the legitimacy of the sin of homosexuals by any means necessary. From establishing their own false Christian denomination and network of LGBT churches, to legislative efforts, the LGBT agenda drivers know that the sin of homosexuality cannot stand alone to be legit.

The pursuit of legitimacy is like “Hamburger Helper.”

Sin is never legitimate in the eyes of God, His Holy Word, and His righteous saints.

We all know the devastating affects the sin of homosexuality has on the divine design of family according to Genesis 2:24.

Just like you cannot have chicken and eggs without a male and female chicken, the human race comes to an abrupt stop should perversion continue on a deliberate perilous course.

For Pastor McClurkin to be rejected once again because of the delivering power of Jesus Christ, underscores the blatant and deliberate attempt to silence those that were truly delivered.

Since challenging a person’s consistent testimony is futile, preventing them from appearing at live events is a desperate resort on the part of LGBT.

It is an outrage. However, we understand further that this strategy is no strange thing.

This is the outer fringes of a storm to attack anyone that, not only share the truth about the love of Jesus, but truly walks in the delivering power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. If your testimony is questionable, they would have put that up as part of the story.

But ex-homosexuals have a testimony that is undeniable, and LGBT knows it. Those that were delivered by Jesus is valid, verified, and consistent. There is no holes in their walk in the power of God. This holy display is dangerous to the agenda of LGBT because we know that within the ranks of LGBT, there’s a lot of people that is looking for someone to stand before them and share with boldness the delivering, gracious, forgiving power of the Holy Spirit.

There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain.

There are people that want to break free but they only need one person to stand and tell them that they could be free in Jesus. This abrupt un-invite is a regular thing with Pastor McClurkin.

Since his testimony of homosexuality and his personal divulging of a son born out of wedlock, God has taken his life and ministry into the place where God’s grace can work in people. There is more credibility and integrity that brings fear to demonic power.

A man of God once said….”A holy man is an awesome weapon in the hands of a holy God.”

This is the thing that LGBT fears. When a man or woman of God Come Clean, and begins to walk in such a way that is blameless, God will use them to reach others. God will put him or her in places where they are not supposed to be and be a blessing to the nations.

That not only is deliverance from sexual sins is possible, deliverance from anything that a person is in is possible.

For Jesus said,

“For with man it is impossible, but with God, all things ARE POSSIBLE.”

If you stay with man, it will never get done, but if you get to God, it will get done. It is possible to be delivered, just get to God.

We do not wish ill will to those bound in the lies and deceptions of LGBT. We still offer the delivering power of the Lord Jesus Christ to break every chain, dispel every lie, and dismantle every weapon formed against God’s people.

Regardless of any other un-invites, the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ will prevail mightily, in Jesus’ name and there is nothing that the god of this world, the prince of darkness, the spirit that now work in the children of disobedience, the father of all sinners can do to stop the delivering power of God.

Un-invite’s weapon shall not prosper.

LGBT: The President, Politicians, And Morals

The president showed up on Jay Leno’s show to talk about morals. Yeah. He went there. Saying (words to the affect) that same sex marriage is the moral thing to do.

First, if you are not saved, water baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

And second, if you are not a preacher, exclusively called by God, examined by competent ministers, and one that lives holy and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ as practiced in the Word, you are neither qualified, nor competent in teaching or politicking about morals.

This is what the president said.

”I’ve been very clear that when it comes to universal rights, when it comes to peoples’ basic freedoms, whether you are discriminating on the basis of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation, you are violating the basic morality that I think should transcend every country. I have no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them.” – See more at: http://perezhilton.com/2013-08-07-president-obama-russia-anti-gay-laws-jay-leno-tonight-show#sthash.p0LEPNB1.dpuf

Mr. President, it doesn’t matter what you think.

The God of the Bible gave us what He said which transcends the sinner.

We understand that you are trying to be a president for all the people, but you have pick the wrong subject.

The ministry of morals is given into the hands of preachers that live what we preach.

Preaching or sharing about morals is also given to the faithful in Christ that departed iniquity.

It is an outrage for anyone to assume that we would keep silent and allow politics to dictate morals.

Then there are individuals in ministerial leadership that stand for a president that defiantly stands against God and His Word.

Brother Lonnie Poindexter of CUREnet Clergy Forum and Director for the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, shared this powerful comment and allowed me to attach it to this blog.

“I have been beat up on by members of the Black community many of them pastors who tell me “He’s the President, not the Pope or a minister. Its not his job to speak on spiritual things. So don’t judge him, he has to speak for all American’s including gays.” 

Well as you can see, POTUS is sounding a lot like a pastor or minister, except his form of the Gospel is diametrically opposed to God’s holy scriptures. 

And the ‘don’t judge’ crowd is wrong. Every king is a moral authority over the land and subjects he is given charge over. Scripture is loaded with references to Godly and ungodly kings. This man does not read the same bible we do nor does he espouse the values we do. He has another agenda. And mark my word, eventually he is going to “come out closet” himself. 

You can put a pretty bow on it, bath it, even give it earrings and a pearl necklace. But a pig is still a pig, and sin is still sin. I don’t care how many laws you pass to make it legal, or how much popular opinion you garner on TV to make it more acceptable….smh”

I couldn’t agree more with this assessment.
It is a revelation of the lack of backbone required in pastoral ministry. When the people dictate which way the church is going as far as morals are concerned, it is clear that a compromise exists. And even if people do not push the issue, if a pastor leads without God, the house is no less than an open sepulcher.

As a result, millions of people will reject the gospel and go on their merry way to hell.

I am aware that you probably go to safe places where the convicting power of God’s holy Word doesn’t confront the sin you uphold. In a much lesser light, you’ve probably allowed them to preach the right Word of God but you intentionally ignore the voice of the Lord.

As far as Russia is concerned, we all know that Russia is still an emerging democracy. We also know that as far as understanding the lengths LGBT is willing to go, the propaganda of homosexuality destabilizes families and whole societies. Much more, it is a direct attack against the righteousness of God that families need today.

It goes without saying that the Russians got it right and America got it wrong.

It’s not the oppressing of people that Russia is about. It is about the propaganda of sin. It is clear that perhaps the Russian Orthodox Church is involved behind the suppression of the propaganda of homosexuality. And for good reason.

For 70 years, Russia has been under the rule of a system of dictators. Totalitarianism ruled their families for a long time. While each day passes, we see that the grace of God is working to save many Russians before the Lord comes. Their stand against proponents of LGBT is a clear and decisive act to ensure that more time is given to Russia. There are many churches in Russia that is ministering the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

While in the United States there is something called “ClergyProject.com“ where pastors from across the nation that once preached the gospel become atheist. This project started in 2012. One by one, pastors are walking away from the truth of the Word of God. We have seen a few pastors walk away from the truth of the Word of God and turn homosexual.

Why is this worth mentioning?

When spiritual leadership walk away from the Lord and the delivering power of the gospel of Jesus Christ, there is a vacuum of morals. This lack of spiritual leadership from those in the minsitry reaches into the very people that look to God for salvation, deliverance, and freedom in Jesus.

The power of politics, therefore, will dictate morals. But it is not necessarily from the highest places of political power but it’s from the people with money called the “elite” that drive politics. The people that are caught in the middle are the foot soldiers of immorality.

Top to bottom the money flows into every facet of society.

Now that we have a president that believes that Russia is “violating the basic morality,” he is issuing a very bold statement to say that he believes that homosexuality is moral.

Thank God that the Word of God is the final authority on morals. Thank God that His loyal preachers, that will not compromise the Lord and the Word of the Lord, will stand and tell the world the truth about morals.

There are many people that want to silence the preachers and the righteous voice in the earth. This will never happen. Just like the Lord had 7000 that never bowed their knee to Baal, all across the country, there are preachers that stand ready to preach and live the gospel of Jesus Christ without fail or compromise.

Furthermore, the president mention that he has “…no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them.”

I do agree that people are human beings, however, when you specialize a class of people, equal justice is no longer in play here. It is clear that Russia and the United States have serious human rights issues. Racism is still alive and well in the United States. It appears, however, that POTUS is more interested in the rights of LGBT than the right to life for the unborn African Americans, and the living African Americans.

As I’ve said before, if I were president, my time in office would have been used to right the wrongs against African Americans. I would dare to say that I probably wouldn’t last a first term but the record would have shown the immediate dismantling of the institutionalization of abortion and a destabilization of LGBT AGENDAS against my people.

For a reelection ploy, he gives cell phones. What do black people do? Thank him in the voting booth. And talk about upholding morality. What does the IRS do? They attack and intimidate conservative believers. And Russia is accused of suppressing the propaganda of homosexuality.

This is why the morals of America should never be brought into play here because American politicians that support the sin of homosexuality, as well as any sin has no morals.

So Mr President, leave the preaching of morals to competent, qualified preachers that is loyal to the Lord and will never compromise the true principles of God and His Word.

CLUB CHURCH: SHOWTIME IN THE CHURCH – The Music Ministry & Sexual Immorality

When you look closely at the past history of music in the church and what is being played and sung in the church today, we are noticing that depending upon the worshipper of the Father in spirit and in truth, and the artist, their music is what drives the people into one of two places.

The holy hill of God or the demonic pit of the devil.

A familiar passage of Scripture comes to mind.

Exodus 32:1-9

“Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered together to Aaron, and said to him, “ Come, make us gods that shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.”

And Aaron said to them, “Break off the golden earrings which are in the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters, and bring them to me.” So all the people broke off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them to Aaron. And he received the gold from their hand, and he fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made a molded calf.

Then they said, “This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!”

So when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it. And Aaron made a proclamation and said, “ Tomorrow is a feast to the Lord.” Then they rose early on the next day, offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

And the Lord said to Moses, “ Go, get down! For your people whom you brought out of the land of Egypt have corrupted themselves. They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them.

They have made themselves a molded calf, and worshiped it and sacrificed to it, and said, ‘This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt! ’” And the Lord said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and indeed it is a stiff- necked people!”

In this passage of Scripture we see a series of things that lead to sin. Notice what they said of Moses. “as for this Moses.”

This is contempt. Not just for Moses, but for God. This is what we are seeing in the houses of worship. When certain songs are not allowed to be played, contempt enters the heart and it won’t be long before they look for the first opportunity to usurp leadership and a calf is made.

The Lord said, “QUICKLY.”

God summoned Moses to the mountain to receive instructions to give to the people, but while he was away, the people took advantage of the vacuum of leadership and made new rules. This is what happens in the church when the leader is away. The people will rise up and make new rules.

Three principles of the vacuum of leadership.

1. When there is an absence of leadership, people will not maintain discipline and they will revolt.

Proverbs 29:18 says,

“Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law.”

The Amplified Bible says,

“Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man] —blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he.”

Moses was chosen by the Lord God to lead the children of Israel from the house of bondage to the promised land. Moses was the direct connection to the Lord. Notice that the Amplified Bible says, “…but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man] —blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he.”

So Moses had the vision and Moses was graced to lead the children of Israel. We will note the fact that the Lord had to discipline the children of Israel when they failed to walk in the Word of God. Moses also served as an intercessor. So a leader is graced to lead and he is graced to intercede should the people violate the Word of God.

When Moses was summoned up, the people of Israel revolted and the people cast off restraint.

In the Navy, before I became an Operations Specialist, I was in the Deck Department. When the ship is about to put out to sea, ships are moored to the pier with heavy nylon ropes, doubled up to ensure that if one rope were to break, the other line would serve as back up until that line is replaced. When the ship is about to get underway, the command is given to single up all lines.” Then a few minutes after the lines are pulled in, the command to take in all lines” is given and the ship is officially underway.

“Cast off all lines” is the command and the ship slowly moves away from the pier either under its own power or by tug boats until the ship is safely in the center of the channel and is able to proceed under its own power. Tugs are predominantly used under the direct command of a Harbor Pilot to help avoid other ships moored in tight spaces.

So it is with people in the church. They cast off all lines and move away from the safety of the Word and solid spiritual leadership. They drift away and live reckless lives.

Why did the children of Israel cast of restraint? They had no direct leadership in the person of Moses and that was excuse enough for them to make a break from the discipline that Moses imposed upon the people. Sadly, the leadership that remained failed to enforce the discipline of Moses. Aaron went along with the request of the people.

In many of our churches, there is a “party” atmosphere where the music sounds so much like the world. Just close your eyes, and you will see it and feel it. That’s why we can easily transition from one thing to the other without blinking an eye. Heaven is filled with music and so is the earth. Sadly, the earth is under the sway of the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience. The unregenerate heart show up in the service and carry within them the heart of the spirit of disobedience.

When righteousness is introduced to the unregenerate heart, if there is no repentance, the unregenerate heart will long for the music of the world because darkness feeds into darkness.

It is only when a person makes a break from the darkness and repent of his or her evil deeds, that the power of God comes in and does a wondrous work.

2. The people will make a god to worship instead of worshipping the Father in spirit and in truth.

When the people of God has no leadership or if the leadership went to seek God for instruction, when the coast is clear, the true god that they want to worship will emerge. In chapter 32, we see that after all of the miracles that they Lord performed before the eyes of Israel that they no longer cared about how powerful God was. Israel was in bondage for over 400 years and the Lord told Joseph that they would be delivered.

The cry of Israel ascended to heaven and God heard their cry. It took 10 plagues to get the children of Israel out. Along the way out of Egypt, the Lord fed and watered the children of Israel. Yet, they rebelled and provoked the Lord.

How soon the people in the church forget how good God is. How soon we forget the awesome display of deliverances by the hand of God. We go backwards and assume that God is pleased. What do we do today? We bring our blessings (gifts and talents) and we make a golden calf. The calf represents self worship. The calf represents a replacement of authority, rule, and righteousness. In other words, it is a rejection of the Word of God and the God who gave the Word.

This calf is indicative of the fact that since we can’t tell the living God what to do, we will make ourselves a god that can’t hear, can’t discipline, and can’t do anything against us when we do our thing. This calf is indicative of their heart. Don’t want to hear God. Don’t want to respond to God.

3. Sexual immorality.

Notice that they “rose up to play.” We all know that to rise up to play is not to just sing and dance. This is about sexual immorality in the services. There was one particular church in New Jersey that had a “threesome” during Bible Study in the back room of the church while a staff minister instructed the class. This threesome was the senior pastor, his wife, and a male deacon. Ungodly and vehemently disgusting. Folks, this was a few years ago but this is the kind of stuff that goes on in the church.

Rising up to play is incorporated with the praise and worship offered as entertainment in the local church. If you are not entertained enough, just go to a local church that offers the hottest music and close your eyes. You think that you were in a club. The sacredness of music and the lack of seeking God has been thrown out of the house of God to appease the people to fill seats.

You cannot throw God out just to fill seats. Yet, this is what pastors do. To fill seats, they have the deftest musicians. They copy the songs that other “professional artists” do and the worship of God is canned. The worship of self is introduced and it is like a drug. Once you see the overall affects and the people loving it, they want more and then you have the golden calf effect.

Then all of a sudden, the women come in, pregnant out of wedlock. Homosexual activity. Perversion all in the house of God.

If we do not stop this nonsense, we will have Ichabod placed on the door post of every house. We will have the candlestick removed, if it hasn’t been removed already. Holy must not mix with the profane. Unrighteousness must not mix with righteousness. The devil doesn’t mind if you are dancing all over the place. The devil doesn’t mind if you are emotionally charged. He minds when you walk in the Word and be just like Jesus. He minds when you refuse to worship a cheap exhibit of the lower nature that reflects the dark heart without God.

Put away among you “Showtime In The Church.”

All of those Thieves In The Temple” as EXMinistries puts it. Get them out of the church. Cast them out and the devils that instructed them.

CAST THEM OUT! In Jesus name!

Sanctify the Lord in your hearts and depart from iniquity.

Only then will the people that claim to worship God will emerge and God will be pleased.

EX PORN: How Pastors Can Break Free Of Pornography

You can walk out of that prison door and drop those loosed chains any time you are ready, pastor.

Jesus said, “He whom the Son sets free is free indeed.” “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

There are many pastors, ministers, music ministers, and musicians that are needlessly and unnecessarily caught in the world of porn. Some of them are on the verge of going deeper into acting out their sex fantasies. When I mean going deeper, there are levels and lines to cross. For the world of fantasy is not enough. There comes a point when a person desires to be what they see. The devil will accommodate.

You do not have to take things to the next level.

A man decided he wanted to take things to the next level after being bored with the world of fantasy sex. He called an underage teen for a meeting to have sex. She told him where to meet. At a diner. A friend called and told him about meeting an underage teen for sex in the same diner. So he said to himself that he wanted to sit in his car and watch his friend meet up with this girl. His friend came and the girl came to the vehicle. As soon as words and money were exchanged, the police lights flashed and cop cars surrounded his friend’s vehicle.

The man that observed this realized that it could have been him. He drove off very slowly as his friend was apprehended for soliciting a minor.

The Lord understands what you need and He will deliver, you just need to give Him a chance.

After watching a former homosexual tell her story, she ended the testimony by saying, “I gave drugs a chance, I gave alcohol a chance, I gave sex a chance. When will we give Jesus a chance?”

After sharing the Word of God at Prevailing Word Ministries, the Lord showed me something that He was doing in me. Many of us want that explosive deliverance. Others are in search for a quiet deliverance where no one knows what happened in our past. Regardless of the kind of end result we are seeking, the Lord said this to me.

“When you called for deliverance, I delivered you and when the temptation came, I was there. Except that when you called, it felt like no one was there.” I almost said, “WHY!!!” Then the Lord said, “I was waiting for your obedience.”

The silence hurt but the Lord was teaching me that my obedience must be for real and not a game. That once I felt that I have His approval, He would say yes. But He knows me.

“The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

Yes, even for a preacher that knows the Word of God, the mind can easily suppress the Word to engage in sin. Yes, the mind can still operate as an unregenerate, un-renewed mind. Yes, the heart can still be deceitful and desperately wicked. And, no, we do not have two natures. The Holy Spirit, by way of the new birth, delivered us from the old demonic nature. The mind still need to be renewed and the body, our mortal or death doomed flesh still need to be disciplined.

Just read 1 John chapters 1, 2, 3, and 4.

When you make the initial decision to walk away from pornography, the grace of God to do so is there. However, the Lord knows when you are serious.

For instance, when I had finished viewing porn and masturbated, I felt the remorse set in that I’ve have sinned against God but I wasn’t really serious about repentance. For some of us, and I’m speaking for myself out of experience, I would resume the same night to watch and masturbate over and over again.

I wasn’t serious about repentance from sin.

I quickly recovered” and started the lust process all over again.

You see, it’s always the same. We get to a point where the remorse overwhelms us and then we recover after the guilt. We quickly suppress the conviction of the Holy Spirit and we suppress the Word of God to engage in more false satisfaction.

This is what keeps us in the game of false intimacy.

Once a person get to a place where they want out of this vicious cycles, patterns, and habits, it will take a while to retrain the mind, thoughts, hand and sexual organs to discipline ourselves to recover to live God ordained, naturally healthy sex lives.

Do not misunderstand me. The moment you make a quality irreversible decision to lean on the grace of God to break habits, patterns, and cycles, the Lord will work with you to get you into walking, long term, in the sexual discipline of Jesus. With married men, it is different because Jesus was never married. However, the discipline is the same. After sex we just wait to have sex with our wives.

Proverbs 5:15-19 says,

Drink water from your own cistern,
And running water from your own well.
Should your fountains be dispersed abroad,
Streams of water in the streets?
Let them be only your own,
And not for strangers with you.
Let your fountain be blessed,
And rejoice with the wife of your youth.
As a loving deer and a graceful doe,
Let her breasts satisfy you at all times;
And always be enraptured with her love.

Sexually active singles will have a tough go at it because they have to endure no sex until they are married. Which is all the more reason to “find a wife.” As a single man, with more choices than to shake a stick at, all you have to do is re-establish holiness in the fear of God, walk in the Word of God, abstain from all forms of evil and commit to no sex until you are married.

For husbands, it’s more of a challenge because the images embedded in the mind obscures the beauty that a wife has. Porn has a way of deceiving you into thinking that your wife is not as perfect in bed or in looks. The mind has to be renewed to understand that beauty is a fleeting thing.

Therefore, you need to “cut off” certain things that impede your mind from thinking straight.

You have to be willing to turn off the television, ipad, iphone and other devices that give you access to viewing things that should not be viewed. You will have to avoid newspapers, magazines, books, and other material that definitely possess sexually explicit material. This includes the supermarket magazine stands and counters.

As Dr. Mark Laaser notes, you have to regain sexual sobriety.

It is difficult these days because of what is out there as far as scantily clad women and women wearing exercise clothing. However, the more you desire to please the Lord, obey His Word, and make a covenant with your eyes, sexual sobriety is achievable in a sexualized world.

To break free and to remain free is all about the decisions you make. It’s about obedience to the Word of God in not so convenient moments.

So here is what you need to do.

1. Cut Off Things That You Know That Will Drive You To Self Sex.

It is always the objectification of women that is trained in the mind of a man. The majority of commercials cannot sell items on straight themed commercials. So a pretty face and a body to go with it will sell the item, but behind all this is the spirit of lust. Because you know that you do not have the money to buy that item, so the devil leaves something for you to remember. A hot woman.

It’s the same with newscasters. Women doing weather as they strut themselves with feminine power. The movie theaters where the trailer shows their power and captures the unsuspecting male in a moment of heated passion. TV shows and DVD’s. No matter what, if you are not careful, you are going to take things to the next level. You will go to soft porn and then hard porn. You have to cut it off and pluck your eye out.”

As Mike Cleveland said, of Setting Captives Free, Radical Amputation.”

Paul said that we are to put to “death the deeds of the flesh.”

The writer of Hebrews said that “We have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.”

The writer is telling us that we have not reached the point where we deliberately shed our own blood to keep ourselves from sinning.

This is equivalent to what the Lord Jesus said when we need to “cut off the right hand and cast it away from us…or pluck out our right eye if it causes us to sin and cast it away from us.”

This radical amputation requires that we look at what has been tripping us up and cut it off. It goes beyond saying “NO!!!!”

It means that we are willing to do whatever it takes to keep ourselves from sinning.

From removing the TV from our homes, to cutting off satellite and cable service. From throwing away our laptops, iPads, and phones, to spending more time in the Word of God. From discontinuing buying and reading magazines and newspapers, to going to different grocery stores where the magazine rack is not the place to hang out.

From having an accountability partner to sitting in a group of men to hold you accountable.

What are you willing to do to break free, pastor?
