Kirk Franklin: What We’ve KNOWN All Along

images

Since exposing his pornography habits on Oprah a few years ago, we see that a “gospel artist” will do anything to make themselves bigger than life.

We all thought that Kirk was doing a good thing in revealing to the world that he had a pornography habit.

A bad mistake.

As Paul said about taking personal issues before the world to be judged, the principle is to be applied. We can’t lay before the world our issues because the world has no moral standard to judge a child of God by. And the world has no power to help a person who may be a sex addict to be delivered.

As one person puts it in Dr. Michael Brown’s book “A Queer Thing Happened To America,” “they are trying to get God delivered.”

The world, by way of the devil, is trying to convert God and the holy saints of God.

Not happening.

As I have stated, no one watches porn and not act out in masturbation, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, or bisexuality. 

It’s no reason not to believe that Kirk Franklin has involvement in masturbation; masturbation is considered by some to be the beginning stages of homosexuality. And if my memory serves correct, I don’t think Kirk mentioned anything about masturbation when he revealed his porn habits to Oprah. 

I could be wrong. 

Plausible as well as controversial as this later statement is, we all know that in porn movies and instruction videos on masturbation, it is the last and most difficult habit to break. That’s why men and women who practice masturbation will reason, wrestle, and fight anyone to keep this Secret Sexual Sin at all costs. 

If you love masturbation more than the Lord, your relationship with Jesus is questionable at best. To love anything more than the Lord is an indictment on your holiness. Having a form of godliness but denying its power (see 2 Timothy 3:5). 

In fact, if you are bound to masturbation, that is, you can’t stop it, you are a slave to your lust to fulfill the desires of the flesh through solo sex (see John 8:32-36 and Romans 6:15-23).

The demons behind porn are some of the strongest ever. Sexual immorality is the one thing that few escape from. Obviously, the highest levels of demon power are operating in the sin of homosexuality and the abortion industry as far as child sacrifice is concerned.

The strongholds of this nature that are permitted to be built in the lives of people affects families, churches (rogue and righteous), communities, politics, and the economy.

We all know that when you go against homosexuality, you are going to a fight that may cost you.

Every time we see a gospel artist come out in favor of homosexuality and make the righteous church out to be the bad guy, we know that this play in the devil’s playbook came from satan himself from the Garden.

Kirk is not the first to claim to speak for the righteous church about “apologizing” to homosexuals. Granted, name calling is beneath a true child of God, but those that stand for righteousness according to the Scriptures have nothing to apologize for. 

The name calling comes from intolerant of righteousness, sinful, disgusting practitioners of homosexuality to deflect the truth about their indefensible sin. 

It would be in the Garden that the devil makes God out to be the bad guy and the devil out to be the good guy.

The people that do not know their Bibles will fall for this from Kirk because they are sympathetic to the sins of this world than they are to being obedient to God. 

There is a reason behind their thinking.

Compulsive masturbation, if Kirk hasn’t brought it to a stop. 

The love of sexual sin.

And then, there is Carlton Pearson who came to the rescue of Kirk Franklin.

There are a lot of professed believers that still do not believe that Carlton went off the deep end. In fact, many people believe that Carlton can still repent and come to the Lord.

The Scriptures on false teachers and prophets are clear.

That’s why I walk away from folk because where God is closed minded in the Scriptures regarding false teachers and prophets, we too must be closed minded. We can’t be like David who fasted and prayed all night long for a child, conceived by adultery and murder, to live when God already closed His mind about it.

When it comes to false teachers and prophets, 2 Peter 2, Jude, and when Jesus said about the Pharisees being blind and to leave them alone, we too must do the same.

Hebrews 6:4-8 “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame. For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.”  

Leave them alone in the sense that they made a decision to walk away from the Lord. When they come out with their statements, we need to attack it and bring the correct Scriptures to bear on what they say.

Have you ever noticed that none of them bring the correct teachings of the Scriptures to bear with their statements? It’s all said on their reputation because they, over time, became believable to certain people according to Proverbs 14:15.

Men and women who have a following can’t say anything wrong. And if you dare bring the correct Scripture and apply it to what they have said, you are “touching God’s anointed.” You are putting your “mouth on the man of Gawd.”

Folks that are gullible for this stuff are the worst offenders of the Scriptures. If they would make the time to understand that God is against homosexuality, and all sexual sin, there wouldn’t be a problem.

But because people are caught in sin, they will use the very Scriptures that denounce sin to announce sin……is all right. We make all sorts of excuses when we see men and women fall into sin.

Have you noticed that when a pastor is caught in sexual sin and is disgraced, the mistress is never mentioned?

Why?

Because a woman can do no wrong and she is just a victim.

What a lie from the devil.

Notice that the writer of Hebrews said, “it is impossible…”

That’s the closed mindedness of God.

No prayer can overcome what God declares to be impossible.

But didn’t God say that “with God all things are possible.”

Context.

When it comes to asking the Lord in accordance with His will according to 1 John 5:14-15.

This is not about prayer and seeking God about supplication and requests.

This is about apostates that turn their backs on God deliberately.

It is “impossible.”

Carlton Pearson is an apostate.

Regarding Kirk Franklin, James 4:4 is applicable here. When you are an enemy of God, you are against the Scriptures. When you are against the Scriptures, you are against the God who gave the Scriptures. When you are against the God that gave the Scriptures, you have no chair to sit in when the music stops. And even if the music is playing and you got a chance, it’s a false sense of security.

So let us not kid ourselves.

These are the last of the last days and more demarcation is taking place.

A clear indication that when people take the side of the world, the devil is about to take anyone with him to hell that is willing to accept the lie over the truth.

It’s time to move away from personality worship and get as close to the Word of God and God and endure to the end to be saved.

The deception will continue and strong delusion sent by God is in the atmosphere. To see who really wants God or foolishness.

By the way. What was it that we’ve known all along?

That sexual immorality in the lives of “gospel artists” is still a stronghold and that people that pretend to know the Lord are imposters.

Subway Sandwich Pitch Man Admits To Child Porn: Preachers Are Next

Subway212This month is exactly 7 years of freedom from the sin of adult pornography. I write this, not to brag, but to declare that the Lord’s grace and mercy made this possible.

Titus 3:5 says “…not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit.”

He graciously and mercifully gave me “space to repent” but it would be a matter of time before He would have no choice but to expose the wickedness in my life as a believer and pastor.

I write this as a warning to those pastors that were warned and has never Come Clean about pornography and masturbation.

In 1 Samuel 15:23, the Word tells us that “Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.”

For the pastors and preachers that refuse to take heed, you are in rebellion. This rebellion that you are in is as if you are working witchcraft. You are under your own brew or spell. Your stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.

You are worshipping yourself and your immoral sexual activity. You are worshipping your ability to get away with it. Each time you enter the pulpit, your hypocrisy comes before God. You might feel that you are on top of the world and no one could reveal your hidden Secret Sexual Sins, but it’s about to come crashing down.

You are about to be forced out of the closet.

You are about to be exposed.

Jared Fogel pled guilty to child pornography and is about to be sentenced.

Usually the capture of another individual is a warning to others that your number is about to be called up if you do not repent NOW!!!!

The one fear that I had when I would tap into porn on the Internet would be to accidentally click a link to child pornography. I knew that if I ever went there either deliberately or accidentally, it’s an automatic trip to jail and then be labeled as a sex offender for the rest of my life.

You may not be thinking along these lines because you are blinded by the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life (see 2 Corinthians 4:4 and 1 John 2:15-17).

For many pastors, this warning will not be heeded.

It’s just like running a stop sign or a red light.

The cops didn’t see you this time so you keep practicing this dangerous game of flouting the law. Until finally, one day you went right through the red light or stop sign. This time, the cop was waiting for you and you now have to pay a heavy price.

Just because you didn’t get caught, it doesn’t mean that you got away with it. It was just a matter of time before you would be caught.

Ecclesiastes 8:11-13 says “Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Though a sinner does evil a hundred times, and his days are prolonged, yet I surely know that it will be well with those who fear God, who fear before Him. But it will not be well with the wicked; nor will he prolong his days, which are as a shadow, because he does not fear before God.”

Jared Fogle honestly thought that he would never get caught.

No man or woman caught in pornography and masturbation plan on ever being caught. Every detail is covered so as not to lead you into being caught.

As long as we deceive ourselves into thinking that we can keep this a secret, Secret Sexual Sins could continue.

This is called a false sense of security.

Psalm 139:11-12 and Psalm 90:8 debunks the myth.

Hebrews 4:13 says “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.”

In plain sight we attempt to hide from God that sees everything at every hour of the day. We may turn out the lights, go to dark places, and pretend that we can’t be seen, but this is where…..“the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth…” 

Ezekiel 8:12 says “Then He said to me, “Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the room of his idols? For they say, ‘The Lord does not see us, the Lord has forsaken the land. ’”

Just because you knew that God walked away, He knows how to walk away and still be there.

Nothing escapes His perfect vision, and what He sees is recorded so it could be used against you should you fail to repent. This fear of God is deliberately ignored and we will be shocked, at least some of us, when it is all played out before our eyes when we stand before the Lord.

Jared thought that this day wouldn’t come. You could see it in his face.

He thought this day would never come. That’s what lust in the heart will do.

Porn and masturbation will keep you longer than you planned to stay, make you spend more than what you are willing to pay, take you to places where you were once unwilling to go, take you further than you want to go.

I believe that Jared was very careful. He covered every possibility to prevent being caught. He had a response contingency for every contingency. In the back of his mind, he knew that if he would continue, it would be the end. We all have this in the back of our minds because the deception is so great, that we continue to sin at will.

Every move is calculated.

I thought that by erasing the pornographic movie that I would escape the eyes of my wife, but I was also stupid enough to think that I could keep it from God. Fortunately, the mercy of God caught me and warned me.

“Is this what you do to Me after all the good I’ve done for you?”

He said this to me while I watched porn and masturbated to porn for the last time. Even after 3 years of freedom from porn and masturbation, I relapse into masturbation afterwards and the Lord sternly warned me.

“You must put together all that you have learned, otherwise you are still a hypocrite.”

The last thing that I needed was for the Lord to call me a hypocrite.

That hurt me badly. But His momentary wounds of chastisement is better than eternal hell according to Revelation 21:8. Holiness is better than hell according to Hebrews 12:14.

There is no need to look over your shoulder. There is no need to cover your tracks. There is no need to keep it all a secret for all things are naked before the eye of the Lord.

Your only way out is to “fall upon the stone” to be broken before God before the “stone falls upon you and grind you into powder.”

If you have no fear of God before your eyes, then all that what you’ve read means nothing to you, as you have determined that the pleasure is too much to give up. You do not need to be hopeless. You need to break free of this broken chain and walk in the freedom of Jesus.

God loved you so much that He led you to this article. In fact, He led you to other articles and this one may be the last one before you are exposed.

It’s the mercy of God at work.

So what will it be?

Will you be like Jared or will you break free?

Will you be like Charlie Sheen, with HIV/AIDS after having sex with many porn star prostitutes?

Your number is coming. It’s now to be free or never. HIV/AIDS is the least of your problems. Eternity in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone is your real problem.Subway212

The article regarding Jared Fogle could be read  here and here.

We pray to the Father, in Jesus’ name, that a messenger be sent to Jared while he asserting his sentence to come to the Lord and repent. The jail sentence is appropriate and commensurate, however, should he not repent, there is a greater sentence that will be unbearable according to Revelation 21:8.
