Franklin Graham Addresses Mayor Buttigieg’s Homosexuality

image.png

Franklin Graham recently told Mayor Buttigieg to repent of his homosexuality.

It’s clear that the homosexual community struck back by showing how out of touch the traditional Biblical view is towards progressive homosexuality.

The world is under the sway of the wicked one according to 1 John 5:19.

We must remember that sin is not normal.

Righteousness is normal.

The part of the proof that righteousness is normal, apart from the Scriptures, is our judicial system.

Is stealing wrong?

Is adultery wrong?

And btw, Who said that it and other things were wrong?

The Lord.

Who said that homosexuality is wrong?

The Lord.

Proof is when the Lord poured his wrath out on Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis chapter 19. Then the Lord instructed and commanded the children of Israel that homosexuality is “an abomination” (see Deuteronomy 18:22).

Further proof is the consequential judgment imposed upon all that practice this abomination (see Romans 1:27).

Over the course of recent time, the world went on a tear to normalize the sin of homosexuality.

We all know that at least in the United States, that within certain segments of the houses of worship, pastors have allowed with their knowledge and sometimes, without their knowledge, the practitioners of homosexuality to provide music as organists, music ministers, choir masters, singers, etcetera.

We know that this is a deliberate infiltration to normalize the practice of homosexuality to be accepted by God.

Far from the truth.

Just because it may be allowed in a house of worship by a pastor doesn’t mean that God permitted it. For the Lord to permit it, He would need to declare His hypocrisy.

Mayor Buttigieg declared that he’s an Episcopalian.

Just because you’re a part of a mainstream denomination, it doesn’t mean you’re in the kingdom of God.

If you truly love Jesus, you would do what He said.

Matthew 7:21-23 (NKJV Strong’s) “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

John 14:15 (NKJV Strong’s) “If you love Me, keep My commandments.”

1 John 5:2-3 (NKJV Strong’s) “By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.”

When you look at these Scriptures, have you noticed that there’s no commandment giving you permission to commit sin?

Some will dare say that this is about addressing love for the brethren.

But why would we exclude some of the teachings of Jesus just to deliberately ignore dealing with the lawlessness of homosexuality?

Which is exactly what the practitioners of sin want to do.

Deflect attention from the real issue of the vile sin of homosexuality.

But notice this.

Even if you don’t want to accept the Bible, or the judicial system against wrong doing, look at the growing epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Then according to Isaiah 5:20, many want to pass laws to make sin normal.

And if that’s not enough, man is doing everything in his power to find a cure to reverse the affects after there’s a transmission of a sexually transmitted diseases associated with the practice of sexual sin.

It’s not the cure that will deliver people from the consequences of sin. Finding a cure emboldens sinners to continue in sin.

Mayor Buttigieg, and all practicing homosexuals need to repent.

We that believe in the Scriptures, speak the truth in love.

We don’t want to see these people die in their sins and be judged by the Lord and cast into the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.

No one fights a firefighter that comes to save a person from dying in a burning building.

No one fights a lifeguard that risks his or her life to enter dangerous waters to save a person from drowning.

In fact, they scream………”Save ME!!!!”

But when a preacher risks his or her life to preach salvation to sinners, many turn away and condemn the preacher.

Such is Franklin Graham and many other preachers.

All we’re trying to do is share the only message of hope for ALL sinners, for Jesus to save them from their sins.

United Methodist Church And LGBT

What should be a no brainer when it comes to the Word of God, some rogue elements within the United Methodist Church is looking to sever its relationship with the main body.

But this same denomination gave their “spin” on abortion that makes the teaching of Jesus and the command not to murder of no significance.

In their statement, it seems that they gave deference to a woman that’s pregnant than to uphold the command of the Lord to not commit murder (see Exodus 20:13).

Like Eli, he honored man than to honor God (see 1 Samuel 2:29), allowing for perversion to remain in the leadership.

With this message of confusion, we’re not surprised of the “swamp” mentality within this denomination. Just as there’s a political swamp, there is no question that a religious swamp exists.

It’s Biblically known as “Wheat and Tares” (see Matthew 13:24-30).

When you capitulate in one area of sexuality, the other areas are next.

Regarding abortion, adultery and fornication is the fuel for abortion.

When two people refuse to discipline themselves in obeying the Word of God to abstain from fornication or adultery, the rest is history.

Now regarding the vile sin of homosexuality, gay, bisexuality, and transgenderism, when these things are debated among clergy to seek permission to officiate weddings and ordination of those practicing these things, to entertain a debate is crazy.

Many will say that Jesus entertained a debate on marriage and divorce in Matthew 19:1-9.

Within that debate, the argument ended when the Lord Jesus gave the Scriptures.

With the debate within the UMC, the debate should have ended when the Scriptures are applied. There should never be a revisiting of this debate in subsequent meetings over doctrine because Scripture ends the debate.

When a person asks a question regarding morals, the answer is in the Word and in the conscience of the person.

In other words, you’ve already answer the question.

It’s then a question of whether you’re going to obey the Lord or blatantly disobey Him, and obey the call to sin.

The UMC have their church doctrinal statement regarding their position on homosexuality. However, people that practice these sins want to insist on serving in their sinful condition, and endorse the sins of others by performing marriage ceremonies for homosexuals.

Since the main stream UMC refused to allow such practices, the practitioners of sin want to sever. They’ve stopped sending their offerings to the main body in protest of the denomination’s decision.

Now depending upon each church building, the fight for property and money will ensue.

This is part of the apostasy spoken of by Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2.

Yes, even protestant main stream denominations that showed signs of dying or are already dead, are struggling to remain relevant to the world to keep seats filled.

It’s more about seats than souls. Empires over His kingdom.

God’s will takes a back seat to our will.

Pastors need to be paid, buildings need upkeep and maintenance, other social ministries need attention. Hitting them in their wallet is a malicious attempt to tie their hands to force them to capitulate.

No one is stopping them from leaving the denomination to continue in sin.

It’s not good that this happens but when a group of people insist on their ways, no one is stopping them from leaving to start their own denomination of homosexuality.

They’re intent on changing the course of an entire denomination to accept their condition of sin.

Sexual immorality will keep seats filled and in hell, keep hell heavily occupied with lost souls.

Holiness will empty seats on earth but those the remain holy will see the Lord (see Hebrews 12:14).

I Want Jesus & I Want Sexual Sin

audience-blur-church-976866

Make no mistake about it. If you ask most professed Christians whether they want sin and Jesus at the same time, the answer would shock many of us.

But it shouldn’t because all we need to do is check the way we’re living.

We want sexual sins and we want righteousness.

We want homosexuality and we want God to accept our choice to keep sin.

We want adultery and we want to keep Jesus.

We want fornication and we want to keep Jesus.

We want bisexuality and we want to keep Jesus.

We want sex with animals and we want Jesus.

We want porn and masturbation and we want Jesus.

We pretend that we could be saved from sin but our actions show that some of us aren’t as saved as we claim to be.

Christian music or a “worship” experience can have a “positive” affect but when temptation comes, that “religious” feeling goes away and we find ourselves yielding to sin without putting up a fight to stop ourselves.

The very thing we’ve “repented” of invites us to be controlled by it.

The Lord confronted me and said “You’ve never repented.” “You don’t repent and then change your mind about repentance.”

Repent means to change your mind.

You don’t change your mind and then change your mind back.

The devil never hits you and I with truth. God hits you and I with truth and awaits our response. satan keeps the lies going and when we want to give ourselves an excuse to violate God’s Word and be lawless, we close our eyes, become blind and deaf, ignore or deliberately suppress the truth, and yield to sexual sins.

Paul mentioned that apostasy would take place in the last days, and then the “Day” of the Lord would come (see 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3.

It’s a deliberate renunciation of the Lordship of Jesus and the sovereignty of His Word, and completely surrender to the sin that easily beset us.

Some of us have gotten to the place where we’ve declared ourselves hopeless, and completely allow ourselves to come under the power of sin. We deceive ourselves, we’ve convinced ourselves that we’re no longer redeemable, condemning ourselves to the prison house of bondage to sin.

We give ourselves over to our urges and impulses with lascivious (absence of restraint and discipline) living.

We beat ourselves and then we reward ourselves with the pleasures of sin.

In every denomination, people are abandoning the true teaching of the Lord because of a thirst for sin. The believers watch too much of the world, allow the seed of the world to enter their hearts, and allow their sinful reasoning to overwhelm them.

When we watch too much of the world, it’s a matter of time before we become so consumed in our minds with the affairs of this life.

People are walking away from Jesus.

We’re not talking about people outside the assembly of the righteous.

We’re talking about people that were once overwhelmed with the love of the Lord. Overwhelmed with Jesus in their lives. Overwhelmed with living for God. Slowly, they drift away. Sometimes family and friends are used by the enemy to slowly suggest alternatives to the Word. To get them to “excuse” their sin.

Little by little, we find ourselves agreeing with what they do against the Lord, and we find ourselves compromising, capitulating, and surrendering to the madness within their fallen minds.

And that’s what satan was waiting for.

We give in because we either don’t want to fight, or we grow weary of fighting our mind and flesh.

This is what we’re seeing in many denominations and non denominations.

We quickly give in to our urges and desires to satisfy the flesh.

Not realizing that many people within and without the assemblies of the righteous, are flowing in that direction of apostasy.

There’s a difference between struggling with sin and calling it quits with the Lord, however, when we habitually fall into sin, it’s just a matter of time before we find ourselves on the brink of making a decision to walk away from the Lord for good.

Hebrews 6:4-6 (NKJV Strong’s) “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.”

These are consistent end time signs.

People are permanently walking away from the Lord.

It’s been reported that 20% of people in the last 2 decades have ceased coming to a local assembly. To put it in perspective, just because a person goes to a local assembly, it doesn’t mean that they know the Lord.

So going to a local assembly is a poor indicator of kingdom growth.

In that same statistic, more people in the Catholic religion leave their Catholic assemblies than people that attend true protestant assemblies.

But again, we should take this with a grain of salt because we don’t know where people stand in the Lord, whether saved or unsaved.

Those that commit apostasy will never be allowed to come back according to Hebrews 6:4-6.

Salvation was never meant to be a revolving door.

You can’t play for two teams. You can’t deal for satan and deal for God.

Pick which way you want to go.

We need to make up our minds to never put our hand to the plow and look back.

We need to not look back as Lot’s wife, and turn into a pillar of salt.

Sexually Under Self Control

The times of Noah and Lot revealed two groups of people that were out of sexual control.

While there’s no pronounced declaration that homosexuality existed during the times of Noah, we shouldn’t assume that homosexuality didn’t exist.

However, the depravity that existed was enough for the Lord to destroy every person and animals on land.

So horrible was the wickedness of man that the Lord “repented” for making man.

Genesis 6:5-8 (NKJV Strong’s) “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.”

We will never understand the magnitude of the Lord being sorry for making man, but one of the things we should consider is the fact that despite what God knew before He made man, He did it anyway.

Now, there was a critical exception.

“…Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.”

Noah made an effort to live above the sin and made it his mandate to find grace.

Proving that it’s possible that with sin all around you to be the exception.

If you look around you, abortion, zoophilia, homosexuality, adultery, fornication, are still areas where people in the world and those professing faith in Christ are having trouble.

But it’s the other things connected that we should also be concerned about.

Drugs, alcohol, prostitution (male/female), and pornography & masturbation are deeply rooted and connected. It’s a web that entangles all who refuse to refrain from being a prisoner of sin.

So much so that deceived people believe that you could engage in these activities and the Lord is good with this.

Not so.

If God winked or turned a blind eye to sexual sins, then consequential judgment for committing these sins would be annulled. The consequential judgment is the STDs that manifest as a result of committing sexual sins.

It’s clear that the numbers of people not under sexual self control consistently increase, not decrease. Among preachers and pastors, the numbers increase and not decrease.

There’s no fear of God, no fear of being turned away by God. No fear of embarrassment (the least of all fears).

1 Corinthians 9:27 (NKJV Strong’s) “But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.”

Galatians 5:22-23 (NKJV Strong’s) “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”

It’s possible, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to abstain from acting on the urges and impulses of the mind to seek to immorally satisfy the flesh.

Time is running out, whether the coming of the Lord or the imminent time of our deaths.

During the time of Noah, people refused to heed the preaching of Noah.

All were destroyed.

During the time of Lot where known homosexuality was prevalent in the city of Sodom and Gomorrah, and prevalent in other cities that were destroyed along with Sodom and Gomorrah, people refused to repent.

All were destroyed.

This world is facing the same results of destruction.

God will not destroy this world again in a flood, because God promised He wouldn’t destroy the world the way He did it in the flood as recorded in Genesis 8:20-22. Peter (see 2 Peter 3:10-13) reminds us of God’s promise to destroy the world by fire. Sodom and Gomorrah is a precursor to the kind of destruction that man will receive after the Great White Throne Judgment recorded in Revelation 20.

Therefore, it’s an incentive to not live out of control lives.

Jesus reminds us that we need to be born again.

And while we remain on the earth, to live disciplined lives.

Otherwise, our professed walk before the Lord is suspect, and hypocritical.

Homosexual “Christian?” Pete Buttigieg

It goes without saying that being a homosexual and call yourself a Christian is 100% incompatible with the teachings of Jesus and the Bible.

Pete Buttigieg is running for president in 2020.

This goes beyond anyones political ideology, whether left or right.

This is about righteousness and unrighteousness.

Don’t be deceived with the pre-packaging.

Just because it’s called chicken, it doesn’t mean that it’s chicken.

After a certain period of time, which was a definite plan of the devil, people will grow accustomed to people operating in sin.

Many have said that “traditional” Biblical teaching is no longer accepted.

Well the Lord Jesus did warn that these things would occur in the end of the end times.

He said in Matthew 24:12 (NKJV Strong’s) “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”

The apostle John said in 1 John 3:4 (NKJV Strong’s) “Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.

Many still believe that if we constantly tell people that “traditional” Biblical teachings is no longer accepted, sadly, many will repeatedly say the same thing.

You will only say what you believe.

Under the U.S. Constitution, a person has a right to run for president but when you see blatant sin in the lives of people, the Bible exposes the sin.

His homosexual sin won’t stop Buttigieg from running for president of the United States, but he will not escape the fact that the Bible called homosexuality sin.

Therefore, it’s a settled issue that homosexuality is a sin.

God will never change His mind (Genesis 19, Psalm 119-89, Malachi 3:6 and Romans 1:18-32.

In preparation for running, most candidates will get their dirt out early so that when it gets close to voting, people will forget about it and that’s when the candidate pivots to issues critical to voters.

After that, just like in the Obama presidency, the real agenda surfaces.

Another Trojan horse candidate is in the making.

Should Biden not join the large crowd of candidates, Sanders and Buttigieg will quickly be on the Democratic platform, and I dare say that it’s conceivable that this may be the ticket against Trump and Pence.

I could be wrong.

The danger is clear.

The devil is making another run at destroying America.

The combination of socialism and homosexuality is emerging again and believers better pay attention.

But what is the purpose behind it?

Good question.

The purpose is very simple.

If you look beyond the policies and politics of Trump, the president accomplished two significant goals.

The blatant support of Israel.

This has end times significance of major importance.

No U.S. president, since Truman, has ever acted on fulfilling a promise regarding Israel.

Many of us believed at one time that satan’s desire is to rule the earth but think about it. satan knows he’s has but a short time and he also knows that his end is near.

What would you do if you are about to get caught and you can’t run any more?

You keep running or obstruct every attempt to get caught.

You delay it for as long as you could.

The more you support Israel, not with mere words, but with action, the more you see God setting things up to end it all.

Sin can’t go on forever.

If satan could interfere with the United States and get the U.S. to no longer support Israel, he’s planning on God not being able to cast him in the lake of fire, or at the very least, postpone it.

However, we do have to look at another plausible answer.

While satan can’t stop the plan of God, he wants to make sure many souls go to the lake which burns with fire and brimstone with him.

So the Buttigieg announcement to run for president took place.

The battle for the soul of this nation continues.

It appears that the Lord is not through yet with America.

satan isn’t through YET either because what happens in 2020 is key and critical to the events of the future that’s yet to come to pass.

In 1917, the Ottoman Empire (Turks) gave up their control of the land of Israel.

50 years later (1967—6 day war), Israel regains control of Jerusalem.

50 years later (2017), the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel.

Each 50 is a jubilee year for the Jews.

What made 1967 and 2017 possible was 1949 when Israel became a nation.

That’s why Hillary lost (Psalm 75-6-7).

If you’re smart, you will see that the Lord is on a time table that no one is able to stop.

The clock is ticking without anyone’s permission and ignores everyone.

As a bonus, in 2019, the U.S. recognizes the Golan Heights as the sovereign territory of Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised to annex the West Bank which is an area north of Jerusalem.

Already, Israelis are migrating back into that region, greatly dashing the hopes of the Palestinians of ever establishing the land of Israel as their own.

Look closely in your Bible and the word “Palestine” is never in the original Hebrew language. But in 100% of your Bible commentaries, maps, and dictionaries, the word Palestine is found repeatedly.

The whole purpose is to deceive Jews and Christian believers into thinking that the land is Palestine. And it’s not.

Constant excavations by archeologists are discovering more unmistakable, undeniable evidence of the true owners of the land of Israel that dates back thousands of years.

You will not find archeological evidence of Palestinians in the land before the children of Israel. You will find Canaanite evidence, but not Palestinian existence before either the Canaanites or the Israelis.

It’s called Israel, promised to Abram by God (see Genesis 12).

What does this have to do with Buttigieg?

If you’re not careful, you will look at these events with a one dimensional perspective.

And we need to pay attention to both.
