I do not think that the Body of Christ is aware of the ramifications of this all important vote.
The Supreme Court Of The United States (SCOTUS) will be set to hear oral arguments on Proposition 9 and certain provisions in DOMA. I just read an article about what took place in Canada when a man passed out flyers that shared about the Bible being against the sin of homosexuality. Two homosexual men were offended and took him to court. The brother in the Lord lost the case and was fined.
A friend on FB posted this link and I believe that the Lord is warning the church in the United States of what is to come.
The Lord spoke to me about the election of 2012 that the election that took place paved the way for what is to come.
In the article above, I hope that you paid enough attention to note that should the Supreme Court strike Proposition 8 down as unconstitutional and strike down certain provisions of DOMA, the level of persecution of believers in Christ and pastors will exponentially rise to unprecedented levels in the US. In Canada, the courts have deemed preaching against the sin of homosexuality as hate speech.
This sets the precedence for persecution that would make the dark ages look like child’s play.
Free speech is about to be erased and we will be subjected to persecution. We must also understand that these are the last days. These are the days of Noah and Lot. We cannot be afraid of their faces. We must preach the truth regardless of the punitive damages the world imposes upon those who believe the Word of God.
It is interesting to note that oral arguments will begin one week before Passover.
The History Channel will show the miniseries called “The Bible” beginning 03/03/2013.
Oral arguments are set for March 26 and a decision by the SCOTUS should be reached by June 27.
Folks, this is no coincidence and the Lord was never caught off guard.
We must however, take note of the fact that since Canada is a dark place, the same darkness is making its way here in the United States.
As Jesus said, “The night comes when no man could work.”
Paul warned us in Romans 13:11-14.
“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lust.”
And this is exactly what the church in the United States has done. We are sleeping and this is the price.
When 50% of pastors struggle with porn. When 70% or more of professed believers struggle with porn. When 93% of African Americans voted to re-elect Barack Obama as POTUS. When 3% of the US population that is LGBT has a bigger influence on the immorality course of this nation than the morality influence of the church, it is clear that we are in serious trouble.
The devil doesn’t mind if we sing praise to God while we engage in sexual immorality. The devil doesn’t mind if we preach watered down sermons that has no conviction of the Holy Spirit. The devil doesn’t mind if we preachers with dog collars and miters on are Emotional Manipulators, Intellectual Manipulators, and Revelatory Manipulators. The devil doesn’t mind you having a “praise break.”
In fact, right in the middle of your praise break the devil is holding your hands and dancing right along with you.
The devil doesn’t mind so long as we never start living the truth before we preach the truth. In the church, you have many people that are quick to live in sin, curse God, and then turn around and praise God with you. You have many people that is attached to corporate organizations that fund the LGBT agenda. In more ways than you can shake a stick, the products that we purchase will have some connections to the money trail that fund sexual immorality. Just like the purchase of porn is a Seamless Connection to alcohol, drugs, prostitution, strip clubs, human trafficking, child porn and molestation, the simple purchase of certain items funds the agenda of LGBT and abortion.
The taxes that we pay, if the Lord could show the deep connections to worldwide immorality, we would cringe. However, somewhere down the line, we may only have had a hand in someone’s involvement in the sins of the world if we participated in purchasing sin. The disconnection that saves us is the fact that we have no direct connection to their sins, unless we did purchase porn or other sinful things.
The believer’s vulnerability is self inflicted and the devil took full advantage.
I say again, that the Lord was never surprised. He wasn’t surprised with Samson, Saul, or David in their sins.
So He is not surprised with ours today.
After reading of the imminent possibility that the 31 states that placed in their state constitution an amendment protecting marriage between one man and one woman is in jeopardy, that everyone knew that there was something up the sleeves of LGBT. The Spirit of God always warn me that something is going on. The thing that I haven’t been able to get is what is that thing that is going on that I don’t know about yet.
When it is just too quiet it is an indication that something is about to happen.
Well, the Bible tells us “When there is peace and safety, then comes sudden destruction.”
It is not a coincidence that around Passover, we are seeing these issues come to head. And for the most part, it is getting to the point that we are so comfortable being tied to the posts with our eyes out like Samson is too comfortable. It is dark outside and getting darker. We are reaching the apex or culmination of the end of the ages. The only thing that the Lord told us to do is to be ready.
Jesus said, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
We do not know when the Lord will come, that is why we must stand and occupy until He comes. This is no time to pack our bags. This is the moment to stand in the face of opposition and speak the truth. We will not run. We will not hide. We will fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life. We will not buckle under the pressure of persecution. We will not look for the convenience and comfort, and safety of the inner sanctuary. What is to come must come and we must be prepared to stand for what is right.
Remember Revelation 21:8. Cowards have no place in the kingdom.
This is the valley of the shadow of death and we are to fear no evil, for He is with us.
Let’s stand and fight.
The Lord Jesus said this to John, the beloved disciple and eyewitness apostle of the Lamb….
“And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
Please note in verse 8, the word “cowardly.”
For a while, I couldn’t get what the Lord meant by that and then after while, the events of our time came, front and center.
Left and right, pastors that we expect to toe the line and contend for the faith, shimmied and two stepped their way from the absolutes of the Word of God.
Many of your TV preachers that you put so much stock in, are found to speak out of two sides of their mouths. When posed with questions about the sin of homosexuality, they cower in fear and you can see it in their faces.
When we talk about Elijah fearing Jezebel, this is what we see.
Remember when the prophets of Baal, 450 of them were assemble at Mount Carmel? After The Lord rained fire on the altar full of water, Elijah commanded the men to seize the prophets of Baal and Elijah killed them all.
Word got back to Jezebel and she threatened Elijah’s life. Elijah ran.
After The Lord poured down fire from heaven after Elijah prayed, this event put Elijah down as one of the greatest prophets that ever walked the earth.
He didn’t finish his earthly ministry well.
He finished running from a sexually immoral, power hungry woman.
Assembled in many places are pastors and bishops sitting in places like The View or the OWN Network. Oprah Winfrey Network. And the same situation is before them.
Many of today’s, preeminent preachers that command the attention of thousands of people on Sunday, and millions, worldwide, sit on these shows and never challenge the false prophets and teachers of today.
When asked pointed questions, it is with a clear intentional avoidance and with lackluster, and no backbone that they give answers that make them appear that our God is small, insignificant, and can’t defend the righteous.
They give answers that magnify the devil. So soft are these answers that the devil dares God to sneeze.
And the people of God are wondering what is going on. Many have voiced outrage at these bishops and pastors that wilt when posed questions about homosexuality, abortion, and covetousness.
These men and women, when they get in front of the camera are so full of themselves that the God they claim to serve is suppressed because it’s their camera time.
The media has made them larger and no one can detect God in them. And the people are so mesmerized with them that they eat, sleep, and drink their lives that they cry out to be like them.
It’s a shame. They get behind their pulpits and they appear invincible. But when they get into a one on one, they wilt, and falter right on cue.
You were expecting them to blast the devil’s henchmen and the henchmen standing behind them shows them the blade of the axe if they say one word not discussed at the food table.
They are ready to crucify them if their guest deviates from the script.
The blade on the neck of Christian in days of old was welcomed by those that stood their ground to testify of the Savior. The saints of old feared no man for fear of God. To be denied because you denied Him, is the worst thing in the world.
Just remember Peter.
How he felt when he denied Jesus three times. The last time, Peter cussed and The Lord looked at Him.
But oh, the next time, Peter would not flinch and when it was time for Peter to testify, he learned his lesson.
Tradition has it that he was crucified upside down because he felt not worthy to be crucified like his Lord.
Today’s pulpit are filled with yellow belly cowards that are afraid to stand on the Word of God and denounce their humanistic demonically inspired rhetoric.
And the world is loving it.
Even more so, satan is just laughing.
These “pulpit giants” are like grasshoppers in the sight of the devil. My point is not to badger but it is to expose the fact that if there is ever a time to identify what the Lord Jesus meant by “cowardly,” just look at the interviews and how they represent the Lord Jesus in panel sessions.
The word “coward”
is the Greek word “delios” from “deos” (dread); timid, i.e. (by implication) faithless. This is Strong’s Concordance.
If this definition isn’t enough, look at Thayer’s Lexicon (Words).
“timid, fearful….of Christians who through cowardice give way under pressure and apostatize.”
This is exactly what we are seeing in our interviews and panel discussions that the world has. They call on the “greatest preachers and teachers” of our times and dare them to be a man or woman of stiff conviction.
In the greeting area of most of these places, they have food and other delicacies. They sit, have small talk and size them up.
Remember this Word….
“When you sit down to eat with a ruler, consider carefully what is before you; and put a knife to your throat if you are a man given to appetite. Do not desire their delicacies, for they are deceptive food.”
The cowards of the pulpit sit down, eat with them and then when it is question and answer time, because it is deceptive food, they fail to stand on the Word of God.
The food was good.
The hospitality, impeccable.
Why should I come down hard on nice people?
Why should they all be told that they need Jesus?
Why should they be told that they are good with God the way they are?
Why should I rain on their parade and tell them that if they refuse to repent, they shall all likewise perish?
There is no need to cause an uproar.
Can’t we all get along?
The 21st Century Pulpit Cowards love not to confront because that would isolate them. These cowards love the people and if people walk away from them because of the stand on the Word of God, they wouldn’t get paid, worshipped, and loved. Their titles in their mouths would cease to be heard. The respect would go with them.
But little do they know that all of that is worthless because only One Person gets all that.
People would walk away and the last thing that you want is for a mass exodus of good loving people that pay enormous amounts of money to sit on the front row of church to be told that they are good the way they are.
No conviction. No fear of God. Great praise and worship music, but no conviction for sins committed in the past week, or even a few moments ago, lusting after a woman sitting in front of you.
You see, the 21st Century Pulpit Cowards, when they do not confront the sin of our times, it’s because they have people in their congregations that are in sexual immorality. Secret Sexual Sins is all up in the house.
To confront the sin of our times demands that the preacher live clean lives. They must ” cleanse themselves of all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
When they repent, and demand others to repent, it is only then that the preacher can confront the sin of the world with strong Holy Ghost conviction.
Holy men are an awesome weapon in the hands of the Holy God.
But when a man or a woman compromises, and let people in the house of God compromise, then they cannot confront the world with sin. And this is the reason why they do not confront when interviewed.
But God hates sin, and so should we. It’s also being able to extend them the grace of God so they can be free.
Taking a position against sin must be made. Taking a stand to help pull them out of sin by the blood and grace of Jesus is the ultimate goal, that glorifies God. Should they intentionally refuse, they must be told the fate of all those that reject the gospel. For all who pass through the portals of the doors of hell must abandon all hope.
The 21st Century Pulpit Coward will not preach truth. They will preach themselves because they are all about themselves.
The 21 Century Pulpit Coward will not stand and preach the Word and confront the sins of our day.
The 21st Century Pulpit Coward is only concerned about their image and how they look before people according to Matthew 23. They are hypocrites of the highest order.
The 21st Century Pulpit Coward, when confronted by the world media will say anything to save their own necks. And when it is time to represent Jesus well, they represent the devil and themselves well.
Go back to the definition of the coward. If you capitulate when it is time for you to stand, read the rest of verse 8.
You’ve read this correctly. I admit. I am not the first to break this but others have been voicing this. It is inconceivable and unfathomable to think that anyone that support the sin of homosexuality is not involved in the sin of homosexuality themselves. Perverseness knows no boundaries. We must understand that sin is the Global Initiative of satan. The moment you understand this is the moment you will either turn from wickedness and turn to the Lord or go deeper into the abyss of immorality, leading all participants to the pit of hell itself.
We have never seen a sitting president advocate for gay rights as this president. 3% of the American population is homosexual. Yet, we are seeing the very seat of Executive Power flaunt homosexuality as if he was a practicing homosexual himself.
Just like the press, when they do not ask certain questions, yet, we see unparalleled support of LGBT initiatives, there is no question that someone need to muster up the courage to ask…..
“Mr. President, you have done more for gay rights than any other sitting president in history. Your support for gay marriage is on the record. My question to you is, ‘Are you a homosexual or bisexual person?”
The ladies on The View won’t ask. No courage there. CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC. Forget it.
Many will say….
That’s none of your business. Or. When he is ready he will tell the world. Or. So what if he is, I’ll still vote for him. Or. He’s a married man, to a woman. What evidence do you have that the president is gay?
So far, the trail of evidence apart from other sources, leads us to preponderance so far, but we shouldn’t be surprised. I’m not a prophet. A pastor/teacher, that’s my limitation in ministry. However…..
An admission? A picture? How about….
I shudder to think about the president and….. making that walk on that long walkway on the red carpet that leads to the East Room.
There is no question in our minds that there are other issues on the table that need a president’s attention but when you see this timeline, and it is a record of accomplishments that gives this timeline a powerful argument that there is an agenda behind an agenda, we need to pay more attention to what is happening.
As I have said before, White presidents were never confronted with LGBT issues except President Clinton.
They now get an African American President. The first one and it’s almost like the switch came on. We can use this Black man to further our causes.
But not just any Black man. One that purports his “faith.” So on the back of a Black Man and at the expense of the church, LGBT has successfully found a way to influence the nation to accept the sin of homosexuality.
Gay Christian Movement Watch has been on this for quite some time. The Lord uses people in places that we shy away from not realizing that the Lord was warning us all along but we have failed to take heed because we have no prominent voices that are zealous for the Lord. We are too busy personal pimping people in the church for kingdom of man building.
All of a sudden, we have a chance to attack sin and we are the number one supporter of sin, and that of the sin of homosexuality. And inside the church, with gay musicians, bisexual music ministers and singers, porn and masturbation operating all in the pulpit and choir lofts, sexual immorality is alive and well.
Perverseness is increasing and the church leaders have not garnered the courage to stop this mess in the church. When African American pastors are called upon to be standard-bearers, we become standard bearers all right.
For sexual immorality of every type.
We don’t know how to control ourselves so, in rebellion, we refuse to preach with such conviction that the Holy Spirit brings the fear of the Lord in the house.
“I ain’t scared of no God!”
It’s the land of Canaan all over again.
Some of us are so gullible that we will ignore what the prophets are saying and vote for a president that supports the sin of homosexuality.
How would God look at you when He poured His wrath out on Sodom and Gomorrah and you support the sin of homosexuality today?
You better check yourself!
3% of the American population is homosexual and they have a place in the White House to push America towards its darkest days yet.
The late John Osteen, the father of Joel Osteen said, “We need the power of the Holy Spirit for the dark days that lie ahead.”
My God, he saw, perhaps, the spiritual and moral decay that would face this nation and warned us.
I’ve come to realize that sometimes it’s more than gaining support to keep you in office. There is more issues that are more important than gay issues.
On the contrary.
When it comes to sexual immorality, the downfall of every nation or the dark places of a nation is determined by morality or immorality. The darker a nation, the more heinous its morals.
As a side note, I witnessed a fascinating video of Sodom and Gomorrah (courtesy of a YouTube link provided by Pastor DL Foster http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwTVFk1HK3Y).
The explorers discovered that the Sodium Bicarbonate was it’s purest form as they walked in the cities where Sodom was destroyed by the Lord. Literally the Lord melted the cities that operated in perverseness. The video also noted that the area surrounding the overthrown cities differentiated in color. The white substance was brimstone and the areas not touched were naturally normal and consistent with the environment.
Secondly, the substance of Sodium Bicarbonate had no earthly mixture, in that the sodium had no byproducts to point to the fact that earth produced the sodium bicarbonate. It was poured out as the Scriptures pointed out in Genesis 19.
The Lord intended to never let these cities be rebuilt so that it once again be known as a place to go to for sexual perverseness. If they would have been able to rebuild, only the Lord knew to what levels of perverseness they would have descended to.
Yet, today, we are seeing perverseness on unprecedented scales.
Pure sin warranted pure destruction.
Having said this, please check this timeline, courtesy of Gay Christian Movement Watch.
You cannot read this, huff and puff and have a hissy fit to disprove the fact that LGBT has the White House on a clear agenda that is a present danger to the spiritual climate of this nation.
And now, please view the timeline.
I was never in combat situation while I was in the Navy. However, while I was on the USS Savannah AOR4, in 1983, we were ordered on a contingency operation to Beruit, Lebanon in support of Marines on the beach for peacekeeping purposes. Washington tasked us to deliver whatever supplies we had left by Commander, 6th Fleet to the amphibious forces. For the first time, I saw and participated in combat operations but from sea. We anchored just off the coast and delivered our dry goods and other supplies. Then we received orders to transit out the next day to proceed on duties assigned.
However, just before we transited, we heard shooting and bombings. The pounding from both sides were incredible. This was my only brush with observing combat while serving my country. We got word after we departed the area that the fighting turned towards the peacekeepers and the ships anchored at sea. The task force commander ordered all US vessels to aweigh anchor and get their ships out of range. Just a few months later, 241 marines, sailors, and other military personnel were killed in a car bomb.
The reason why I shared this story is because in many battles, brushes with death can and will occur. When you are sent to fight, death is imminent. The sad thing is that it’s one thing to be shot at by the enemy. But when you get shot at by friendly fire, it’s another thing.
Sometimes these incidents occur because of miscommunication. Wrong coordinates. Malfunction of weapons systems. Human error or all of the above. However, there is also intentional firing upon another person by a person that claims to be on the same side. Much of that is happening in Afghanistan.
When there is a clear objective, the intent is to pull your resources together and deal with the objective. In spiritual battle, at times, there will be dissenters. People who, for whatever reason, decide no longer to fight against sin, when they fire off at the preacher, it is a clear indication that rebellion is before you.
Pastors and preachers are expending enormous amounts of energy fighting against the world and their insistence of infiltrating sexual immorality in the church. The church is over run and the enemy is inside the camp at will. At the same time we are fighting against “well intentioned” believers that insist on living their lives of Secret Sexual Sins, and when their sins are exposed they are blasting away at pastors.
Pastors are shooting at the devil and then have to turn around and shoot at rogue preachers and believers.
The devil has us in a crossfire.
The world has season tickets to the great joke on earth.
Ringling Brothers can’t top the show in the church. The ratings are off the charts and they are laughing at some of us with disdain.
It is a shame when people that called themselves preachers are sympathetic towards sin. Here you have two persons in an interview and you can’t discern the difference. You expect a stand, a solid stand on the Word of God and you expect a solid stand on sexual immorality. The position of sin was clear but the rebuttal was….inept, at best.
Preachers must state their position and back it up with Scripture. Not with politically safe rhetoric that cause one to scratch their head in bewilderment. God never minced words. He said what He meant and that’s what we need in this hour. Preachers with backbone. Preachers that will not wear collars and apologize for being a messenger of God.
The fear of God must return to the preacher in order for the fear of God to return to the church. Otherwise, our impotent performance is another charade.
When a believer becomes sympathetic of sin, that’s when they have turned into a pillar of salt. There they stand, callous, cold, and unresponsive.
God is against all sin.
If you cannot agree with this objective of hating all sin, you are an enemy of God.
If you practice sin, you hate God. If you practice righteousness, you hate the devil.
You can’t do both.
Sometimes people that claim to know Jesus forget that Jesus was sent to the earth to die for the sins of the whole world. God hates sin and He condemned sin in the flesh of Jesus.
So if God hates sin, and you claim to know God, it’s a no brainer.
You too must hate sin.
So when you love sin, you hate God.
And don’t you dare say that you love God but you love sin too.
It’s a contradiction.
Then when it comes to leaders expressing that other leaders should support the president in same sex unions, I STRONGLY CONDEMN AND REBUKE THAT!
Leviticus 18:22 is the grounds for issuing the rebuke.
I will stand on the authority of the Word of God and rebuke what people say that is against the Word of God and those that choose the side of sin.
If you cannot come up with Scripture to support God permitting you to commit sin, do not tell preachers to stop preaching against sin.
And when a person insists on committing sin and we rebuke them, it is for the purpose of getting their attention to repent.
If a person genuinely repents, we forgive them, pray for them, and admonish, and help them to live for Jesus.
Do we continue to rebuke them? NO!
Unless they rebuke you for rebuking them.
You want to help them stay from the curse of sin. You want to help them live clean lives for Jesus.
Pastors must be sensitive to the degree that abrasive, harsh words, and un-Scriptural action is not a part of their pastoral responsibility.
But when others insist in committing sin, when carnal Christians teach others that sin is permitted, when they turn on a preacher, and then blaspheme the name of the Lord, like Hymenaeus, Alexander, and Philetus, that’s when the rebuke is to be issued.
Where is Phinehas when you need him? Cozbi and Zimri, a leader of Israel walked right past God, the Tent of Moses, Moses, Aaron and Phinehas. While the plague was in full swing in the camp. Phinehas said, “Oh, no y’all don’t!”
He took a javelin and thrust them through.
It appears that they were in a compromising sexual position because all Phinehas needed was one thrust to kill them both and the plague ceased in the camp.
Zimri made it by God and Zimri thought he was safe. He thought that God permitted his sin. Zimri made it by the Tent of Meeting. Totally disregarded the worship place of God. It’s called desecration. Zimri made it past Moses and Aaron. Certainly, they approve. But Phinehas wasn’t having it.
The zeal of the Lord rose up within him and he took care of business.
By the way, Cozbi was a woman of Moab that was part of the Moabite leadership.
Which is consistent. Whenever leaders desire sin above God, you can be sure that their punishment will be worse. Hence, Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson, and any other sinful preachers or pastors that fails to uphold the standard of the Word of God.
You can’t be sympathetic for sin and call yourself a preacher.
Paul said, “Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid!”
Many carnal believers want to have it both ways.
You cannot walk down both sides of the street at the same time.
You cannot live in two houses at the same time.
You cannot be a sinner and a saint at the same time.
You cannot live for God and live for the devil at the same time.
You cannot be good fruit and bad fruit at the same time.
You cannot speak righteousness and speak evil at the same time.
There are too many “believers” that claim to know God but when you bring the truth about the Word regarding sin, they can’t stand the truth.
And then they speak against you to try to condemn you.
All we preachers are doing is agreeing with what God said and repeating what God said.
In the name of Jesus, I rebuke you!
Paul said to Timothy about leaders, preachers that sin, “Those that sin, rebuke before all.”
Believers are shooting pastors and preachers that live the truth and preach the truth in love. If we didn’t love you, we would let you be judged and that would be the end of it.
We see the car that is about to hit you. It would be wrong for us not to warn you, wouldn’t it?
But before God brings judgment, we are tasked to warn you.
Sadly, people pull out their weapons that they are supposed to use against the devil and shoot the preacher that is living and telling the truth. These people do not realize that they are in a combat situation and they do not know who to fight, much less know how to fight.
People in the church are so confused that they sit too comfortably in church.
So comfortable that when you tell them to pray and fight, they roll over and look at you like you are mad crazy. We are in the fight for the church and the devil has us fighting and shooting at each other.
You fell for the devil’s trick to deflect responsibility and place the blame all on the preacher.
It’s the pastor’s fault.
It sure is if he or she is living in sin.
But woe to you if they are living what they are preaching and you are caught in sin.
Just be warned. Your day of exposure is coming.
Preachers are shooting against the enemy with the truth of the Word and then they have to shoot at their own people because the preacher has discerned that there are people that claim to know Jesus that turned against God, and they have become enemies of the cross of Christ.
This is expected.
Enemies of the cross.
Jesus met heavy resistance because He lived and preached the truth. The spiritual leadership of His day changed the commandment of God and replaced God’s Word with their traditions.
They were money grabbers and spiritually inept to help people get it right with God. The church is asleep and drunk with the world. It’s no wonder that the world is playing us against each other because they want to live in their world of sin. And they want to drag the whole church into sin so they can live comfortably without confrontation and conviction.
It is our job to confront sin in the house of God. If you do not want to hear about sin, stay away from the church. Don’t read our blogs. Just avoid everything that has to do with God and His Word. But we know that can’t be possible because the Holy Spirit lures you back to where truth can be found in God’s Word and you have to make a choice to receive truth in the inward parts or reject truth and be judged.
Some of you do not realize it that preacher must now turn up the intensity of the fire of the Scriptures because the world is trying to tell us what the Bible says. Sinners have no right telling the righteous what the Word says.
They are not in the kingdom until they are born again.
Carnal Christians do not have any right to tell a preacher that is living by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God what the Word says.
We are called to be an example in “in word, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.”
It is out of being that example that gives us the right to rebuke people that is in sin. The worst thing in the world that carnal believers can do is live in such deception that when they are caught living in sin that they lose their minds and try to go up against the Word of the Lord that comes from the preacher whom God sent to straighten you out.
You try to get us to back off.
You do not realize that the Lord was speaking through that preacher and you use everything to curse, condemn, ridicule, slander, abuse, and berate a pastor that is living by the Word of God.
I command you to repent, in Jesus name, and command you to back off.
You do not know what you are getting yourself into. You got a right to say anything you want but we will, by the authority of the Head of the Church to rebuke you.
I was told that I could quote Scripture all day long but it doesn’t make me right.
I know that I am right just by this statement.
When a person says, that I could quote Scripture all day long but it doesn’t make me right, I was waiting for “because the Bible said……”
And that’s where you rebuke people because there is no excuse for sin.
And if we are to know where a person stands, it must be done by examining them through the Scriptures. So far, some misinformed people still do not know their Bibles and that is a travesty.
You expect believers to uphold the Word of God at all times but I find that people uphold the Word when it’s convenient.
I rebuke you in Jesus’ name for that!
Babes in Christ, that’s one thing. But people who claim to be in the faith has much left to be desired.
You can’t pick and choose when it’s convenient to follow the Word of God.
You must follow the Word at all times.
When it comes to rebuking our national leaders from every level of government, the reason why they get away with what they get away with is that pastors are not strongly condemning their actions. It’s a give in that the majority of the politicians will do it regardless of what pastors are charged to say, but they should know that pastors that supposed to have impeccable credentials and the highest credential…God’s ear, must never be lightly esteemed.
I do not think that this level of the fear of the Lord may return but God has a way of turning it around.
Pastors and preachers called by God do not work for politicians and it is abundantly certain that pastors and preachers do not work for people in the church.
Pastors and preachers have One Boss.
His name is Jesus.
He called us, and by His grace, He found us to be faithful to Him and His Word, and He placed us in the ministry.
The politicians and people in the church do not pay us. We work for the Head of the Church. Any pastor or preacher that fails to live according to the standards of God’s Word and teach others to do so must be strongly rebuked and their acts must be condemned.
When it comes to the president of the United States, do not let the office mesmerize you. Too often, pastors and preachers lose their bearing. God puts them in strategically to give them the Word of the Lord to these politicians and it is the responsibility of the preacher to uphold the standards of the Word of God at all times. They must never be allowed to intimidate a preacher.
We fear God not man.
When a preacher fears a man more than God, it is bad because your opportunity to minister the Word of Life must never be lost.
For the most part, why would a sitting president be in support of gay marriages? My first question, which I know I would never get an opportunity is to ask him if he is gay. It is rare that a person supports homosexual sin and not be homosexual themselves. Now we all know that there are many heterosexual couples that support gay marriages that is not homosexual but what is interesting is that there are many men that will admit to some bisexual activity.
In this day and age, we must never put it past people of the possibility of bisexuality unless there is conclusive evidence that they are not. Such questions must be asked so that we can have a clearer picture of the intent of our political leaders. Again, we are headed down a perilous path of judgment and if we do not get at the heart of the issues and deal with this and other spiritual issues, we will face what must be an inevitable series of consequential judgment upon the nation that will have implications until Jesus comes.
Friendly fire will continue to happen in the church. But it must come to a stop. Otherwise, the real enemy, the devil, will continue to ridicule us until Jesus comes.
As I have mentioned on FB, we are seeing a smoke in mirror situation. Why would the president come out and support gay marriage? He and those that are “steering” his presidency is avoiding the up coming issues that will face this nation. At this stage of the game, it looks like everything is mending but it’s not and we know it.
The economy is still in shambles. The Federal Reserve admits this. When you are looking for a job, your salary will not be able to pay for the basic necessities of life. Benefits are also cut. The price of the cost of living is no longer tenable. It is clear that something sinister is on the horizon.
That’s the price for thumbing your nose and turning your back on God.
The combination of immorality and the economy is a diseased umbilical cord and the death of a nation because of its refusal to repent is before this nation. When you have 3% of the American population crying out for marriage rights.
It’s the destruction of the economy stupid.
The gay issue is a big immorality issue but also what’s interesting is that the African American base is in shambles.
So in essence, it appears that the president is dependent upon a new minority.
The gay vote.
And with such a solid support from the gays, their 3% voting will trump the 12% African American vote. More like 10 or 11% with 1% or less of them gay African American.
But we all know that according to Proverbs 14:34, sin will never sustain a nation.
These are the end times.
Preachers that refuse to bring their congregations to the place of repentance for sin to seek the forgiveness of God are playing with men’s souls. And the price will be eternal retribution. Just as the Lord Himself came and rebuked the Sanhedrin in His day for not knowing the time of His visitation, so too, the church is oblivious to the seasons and times of our day.
We need to cry out before the Lord comes. Because when He does, no one will be spared.
It is time to get ready and stay ready. We do not know the day or the hour and we can ill afford to use Israel as the time piece to discern the Lord’s coming. When will He come? James tells us that the “Judge stands at the door.” We do not know when but now is not the time to walk away from the Lord.
Now is the time to get ready.
