The insistence of a homosexual’s right to marry is almost precedent. The next battle will be to force, by law, all churches that is holding out to true Biblical values to perform the services of matrimony for practicing homosexuals. Behind the scenes, we are seeing a full fledge assault to infiltrate into denominations that were once a stronghold of righteousness for the Lord.
Denominations that were once Christian have exchanged brass for gold. They have accepted the fact that it is better to accept the demands of the culture than to promote holiness, righteousness, and the powerful gospel of Jesus Christ.
There’s been a crack in their armor for a long time.
This crack is now a BIG GAPING HOLE.
Like the Catholic institution, sexual immorality was already firmly established in Protestant denominations. Regardless of how far man decides to go with the sins of the flesh, the blood of Jesus is still the only anecdote to save, deliver, and set free anyone from ALL sexual sins.
The most powerful thing that the Lord did for man was to send His only Begotten Son, the Lord Jesus to die for the sins of the world.
Not so that we can continue in sin (see Romans 6:1) but to be free from sin (see John 8:32-36).
You do not have to be a slave to your fleshly impulses.
The death on the cross that the Lord Jesus suffered demonstrates to the whole world that the blood of Jesus is more than sufficient to destroy the works of the flesh called sin. This kind of love is unheard of.
God the Father, sending God, the Son to die for sinful humanity is unfathomable. There is no measuring of this kind of love.
Ezekiel 18:4b says “The soul that sins, it shall die.”
God told Adam in Genesis 2:16-17, “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
Paul tells us in Romans 5:12 “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned…”
But the Lord didn’t leave us this way.
Blood must be shed to appease the righteous demands of a just and holy God.
Just as in the natural when a crime is committed, the law in the natural demands that a criminal pays for the penalty.
Why is it that we do not have a problem with this in the natural, but when it comes to God, it isn’t fair or just? That if we “neglect so great a salvation” we are sentenced to hell in eternity. Since God created man, doesn’t He reserve the right to be just and holy? Doesn’t He deserve the exclusive right to be holy?
Can the clay tell the Potter what to do?
That we should remain in the condition that we are in with impunity? When the police officer or state trooper pull us over for a moving or speeding violation, we do not have that much of a problem with it. But when the Lord is sending a word to save us from the penalty of sin, we have a problem.
This blood that Jesus shed is for you.
The penalty that He paid is for you.
The love He displayed is for you.
The world calls it “easter.”
It’s a pagan holiday that diverts attention away from the true sacrifice of the Lord Jesus. Easter eggs is connected to the fertility gods. We constantly teach our children a substitute of the truth. As a result, they reject the truth when they get older because they have been indoctrinated at an early age. Regardless of their indoctrination, the truth still stands ready to come to them.
God is not unjust to leave you clueless and hopeless. God always find a way to get the truth to you no matter how old you get. No matter how much you’ve been indoctrinated.
Here is the truth about Passover.
The Jewish Passover is an antitype of the sacrifice of the body of Jesus.
The Jews were slaves of Egypt. After 430 years of bondage, the Lord God heard their cry for freedom and sent Moses to help liberate the children of Israel. The last plague against Egypt was the killing of their firstborn. The death angel was sent but the nation of Israel were instructed to kill an unblemished lamb, to cook it and eat it, make unleavened bread and eat it, and place the blood of that lamb on the doorposts of the houses of Israel. When the death angel would walk by and see the blood on the doorpost, the death angel would “Passover” that house.
Egypt suffered an irreparable defeat because of Pharaoh’s hardness of heart, and released the children of Israel.
The blood of Jesus works the same way except from heaven. That’s because Jesus was resurrected from the dead and is seated on the right hand of the Father.
For those of us that believe in Jesus, the blood He shed for us was sprinkled on our hearts.
Therefore, death passes over us. We will not be judged for our sins because we have agreed to the terms of His salvation.
Death can pass over you too, if you believe, receive, and forsake the sin of homosexuality, and ALL SINS for the rest of your life. It doesn’t mean perfection. It means abstention. The power of sin was broken when Jesus paid the price with His willing sacrifice. If you refuse to accept the provisions of salvation, the penalty is still in effect.
You carry a debt that you cannot repay.
To refuse to allow Jesus to pay your debt of sin is inexcusable.
If you had a bill that can’t be paid and someone offers to repay your bill, you do not have a problem with them forking over the money. But here, we have a debt that we can’t pay and Jesus paid that debt.
But we refuse His offer.
That’s why the world hates the nation of Israel and the church that stands against the sins of the flesh.
I believe that the church needs to expose the lies purported by proponents of homosexuality, both straight and gays while at the same time, offer the one thing that can deliver them from sin.
The blood of Jesus.
The pattern is clear.
2. Crying Out For Deliverance.
3. God Sends Help.
4. God Defeats The Enemies Of Bondage.
5. God Miraculously, Mercifully, And Graciously Frees People.
6. The People Goes From Bondage (Exodus).
7. We Proceed Into The Promised Land.
If you can find a love better than the Lord’s love, go for it. But I guarantee you that you can’t find a greater love than His.
Of all the religions of the world, you will never see them send someone to die for sin and then be raised from the dead.
I defy you to tell me something that is better than this.
Therefore, there is no greater sacrifice or love expressed.
Because He has given to us a greater and better sacrifice.
Our Passover Lamb of God, the Lord Jesus.
This blood is for you.
In light of many local churches and pastors becoming Gay Affirming Churches, we unapologetically declare the fact that we are an EX–GAY AFFIRMING CHURCH.
Paul said, in 1 Corinthians 6:11…
“And such WERE some of you. But you WERE washed, but you WERE sanctified, but you WERE justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
There are those that live in hopelessness unnecessarily. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides hope for those trapped in the sin of homosexuality. Through the sinless, shed blood of Jesus, by His grace, and mercy, you can experience new life in Christ to prevail over the sin of homosexuality.
The intent is not about heterosexuality. The intent is to help you, through the grace of God, to willingly move you from sin, to holiness, to help you become whole in Christ.
Even if you have an STD, or HIV/AIDS, it is not over.
The love of God is still extended to you no matter what you have.
Prevailing Word Ministries stands ready to minister to you no matter what you have.
Provided that you never lose hope, repent of your sins, and obey the good news of Jesus Christ. We are here to help you, and all who come to receive eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, as opposed to receiving the wages of sin, which is death, or eternal separation from the Lord forever.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church.
We believe that the Lord calls all sinners to repent, believe the gospel, and be saved.
That includes all fornicators, adulterers, homosexuals, bisexuals, catamites, sodomites, lesbians, and other involved in sexual immorality. His love, grace, and mercy is extended to all who repent and come to Christ, having their sins washed away by the blood of the Lamb.
We welcome all who desire to repent and be saved. Even if you do not want to repent, you are welcome to attend our local church to hear the unadulterated Word of the living God.
Those who practice sin are not excluded from attending our church, however, it is only through repentance of sins that a person can be saved, delivered, and set free from the bondages of all sin, including the sin of homosexuality.
The sexual immorality events that confront the church require that we make a Biblical statement so as not to give any hint of an appearance of condoning that which God condemned and declare as a detestable sin.
Also, it is folly to attempt to lower the stigmatization associated with homosexuality to lessen the sin of homosexuality to a level playing field. Sodom and Gomorrah is proof of what is in the mind of God regarding the sin of homosexuality. Few realize that any stigmatization practicing homosexuals may feel, is truly the convicting power of the Holy Spirit to convince the world of sin according to John 16:8-9.
As with all sinners, suppression of conviction is nothing more than remorse that will never turn into repentance until godly sorrow comes.
First, the Holy Bible is the infallible, inerrant Word of God.
To attempt to minimize, reduce, adjust, or alter the Word of God to exclude the sin of homosexuality is a bold and blatant attempt to question and put on trial the God of heaven, and His Word. To mislead people by using the Scriptures in making erroneous claims that fail the test of contextual or harmony of Scripture regarding the sin of homosexuality, is a misguided and miscalculated attempt to make it appear that God was wrong and sinful man was right.
The God of heaven and earth and the Bible was here before all of us, and should Jesus tarry, the God of heaven and earth, and the Bible will be here after us.
This brings about the eternally established facts that….
God cannot change. Malachi 3:6 says…
“I am the Lord, I change not.”
God cannot lie. Numbers 23:19 and says…
“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor the son of man, that He should repent.”
God’s Word is eternally established in heaven. Psalm 119:89 says…
“Forever, O Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven.”
Therefore, God’s position against all unrighteousness, including the sin of homosexuality, is clearly established. His position to redeem man is also established.
Second, the Bible is clear regarding the sin of homosexuality.
Leviticus 18:22 tells us that “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”
Many opponents of the Bible will attempt to assert that the Old Testament does not apply today because of the New Testament.
This is error.
Many will assert the flawed argument that the laws of the Old Testament were done away with when the New Testament was established. This fallacy serves only one purpose, the continuation of sin.
In the Old Testament, there were three types of law given to the children of Israel.
1. Moral. 2. Ceremonial. 3. Dietary.
The one aspect of law that carried over into the New Testament is “moral law.”
For instance, Hebrews 13:4 says, “Marriage in honorable among all and the bed undefiled, but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”
Therefore, fornication and adultery is morally wrong in the Old and New Testament. Because it is true that the sin of fornication and adultery is morally wrong, the sin of homosexuality is equally wrong as with all other moral sins.
Some will argue that nothing was said about God judging the sin of homosexuality after Sodom and Gomorrah. Quite the contrary. The aggressive tactics of LGBT extremists will go as far as the universe (if they could) to discredit the Bible and anyone that stands for the truth that is eternally embedded in the Word of God.
LGBT has concluded that the Bible is outdated, archaic, and no longer acceptable for the times we are currently living in. They declare that the church is outdated and need to catch up to the times the world is living in.
Quite the opposite is true.
Man is behind eternity and needs to catch up with God through repentance and receiving eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
The destruction of lawless people during the days of Noah and the destruction of homosexuals living in Sodom and Gomorrah, and the surrounding cities, was conclusive proof of God’s eternal abhorrence of all sexual immorality.
1 Corinthians 6:9 says…
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
The list in this verse declares that entrance will be denied to those that practice these sins.
Ceremonial law and dietary law were done away with according to Colossians 2:11-23.
Thirdly, consequential judgment is imposed upon all that practice lawlessness.
For sexual immorality, STDs come upon those that transgress Genesis 2:24 and Hebrews 13:4.
For those that practice the sin of homosexuality, Romans 1:18-32 clearly states that when a man or woman engage in the sin of homosexuality, they receive “…in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”
The Gay Man’s Disease, changed now to be known as HIV/AIDS is the “penalty of their error which was due.” The change occurred because of the negative stigmatization applied to those that practice the detestable sin of homosexuality.
As a result, collateral damage is upon the whole world. From children born to parents practicing the sin of homosexuality, or bisexuality, to accidental needle pricks, intravenous drug use, tainted blood supplies for blood transfusions, and other means of contracting the AIDS virus.
It is undeniably documented that the primary means of contracting the AIDS virus will always be MSM.
This is further evidence that the sin of homosexuality is an abomination or detestable because of the consequential results of such perversion.
Fourth, the error of declaring the sin of homosexuality a sexual orientation, racism, bigotry, or discrimination.
The Civil Rights Movement of the 1950’s and 60’s was about racial equality, not sexual orientation. Black people were denied basic rights that were already afforded to every person born in the United States. Segregation and Jim Crow laws were used to suppress Black people after president Lincoln gave the Emancipation Proclamation.
Sadly, and abhorrently, LGBT perverted and polluted the NAACP and other Black institutions by coercion and without any doubt, money, to see to it that the sin of homosexuality and those that practice this ungodly sin, has its place as those that are being discriminated against. LGBT successfully manipulated Civil Rights to the degree that it is no longer about sin, but bigotry.
Fifth, political correctness vs. Biblical correctness.
It is politically incorrect for God fearing people to preach or share that homosexuality is a sin as declared by God in the Holy Bible. In a politically correct world declaring homosexuality as a sin is hateful, bigotry, and discrimination. This is a cold, calculated attempt to silence the voice of righteousness so that the sin of homosexuality could be accepted as a normal lifestyle.
However, we all know that homosexuality is not normal because of the consequences imposed upon those that practice the sin of homosexuality. Furthermore, anyone living in America has equal protection under the law, but we all know that according to the Scriptures, marriage is defined as one man and one woman, joined in holy matrimony.
To afford homosexuals the right to marry is perversion. There is no question about what is being practiced in the bedroom of those who commit these sins. There is no question about the results and consequences that follow those that practice the sin of homosexuality, or for any sexual sins.
Therefore, we at Prevailing Word Ministries will err on the side of being Biblically correct and be politically incorrect. We much rather seek to please God than to displease God. We fear God than to fear man any day of the week, 24/7.
Therefore, Prevailing Word Ministries will always welcome those that are bound in any sin, including the sin of homosexuality, to minister to all with the truth of God’s Word in the love of God while standing firm, and immovable in the truth.
Prevailing Word Ministries will never apologize for standing in the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ, nor retreat from those that insist in aggressively pushing the LGBT agenda in an attempt to silence our righteous voice, and force this local church to turn its back on the Most Holy God and His Word, the Holy Bible.
Prevailing Word Ministries is an EX GAY AFFIRMING CHURCH.
There are many professed believers that live under false pretense. Their spiritual “dialect” and “diction” sounds so much like those in church but when you look closely, you see some serious flaws. Unbeknownst to a lot of people, Vision Church, represented by a homosexual leader, O.C. Allen that not only affirms the gay lifestyle but the entire spectrum of LGBT.
All over the United States, counterfeit churches with self produced documents and documents from questionable legitimate organization that once shunned the sin of homosexuality, is cropping up quickly. In NYS alone, there are over 350 gay affirming churches.
The Scriptures that come to mind is this….
Matthew 13:24-30 says….. “Another parable He put forth to them, saying: The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. So the servants of the owner came and said to him, Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares? He said to them, An enemy has done this. The servants said to him, Do you want us then to go and gather them up? But he said, No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”
The amazing thing about parables is the whenever someone asked Jesus to explain a parable, He readily shares the secret behind the use of nature to explain spiritual things.
Matthew 13:36-43 says…. “Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered and said to them: He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
Just because Jesus sent the multitude away, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the multitude was prohibited from asking Jesus what this parable meant.
First, the location. Jesus said…“The field is the world…” Some people make the mistake and think that the field is the church. It isn’t because Jesus said that “The field is the world…”
As with anything that the Lord does, the false need a prototype. Truth is the prototype. The devil always opposes truth so he provides alternatives or counterfeits.
The purpose is to deceive others from accepting the truth. Since the Garden, this is satan’s weapon of choice. Question the truth. Jesus points this out in John 8:44 in speaking to the leadership.
“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.”
For instance. Remember in the first chapter of Job when the sons of God appeared or presented themselves before the Lord, and then satan appears, and the Lord God asked satan a question? “Where have you been?”
What was satan’s response?
“Going to and fro….”
Then the Lord said, “Have you noticed my servant Job, one that fears God and shuns evil.”
satan answered, “Does Job fear God for nothing? You have placed an hedge around him…”
His answer revealed that the devil was looking for a way around Job to destroy him. So the devil lied. Some say it wasn’t a lie. Well, when you do not give a direct answer to a direct question, but deflect and divert, it is an evasive answer. Because the Lord knows everything and the devil knows it, he still finds a way to lie about it.
Second, the tares come from “…the wicked one.”
In the world, there are many impostors churches, leaders, and people.
In the house of the righteous, evil should not be in the house, but in the world, evil is found all over the place. Side by side, evil tries to get close to the righteous for legitimate purposes.
The first thing about tares is that the seed is dark and the seed of the wheat is much lighter.
The second distinguishing feature of tares is that it is poisonous.
Easton’s Bible Dictionary offers this assessment of tares. Hold on to your hats.
“TARES: the bearded darnel, mentioned only in Matt 13: 25-30. It is the Lolium temulentum, a species of rye- grass, the seeds of which are a strong soporific poison. It bears the closest resemblance to wheat till the ear appears, and only then the difference is discovered. It grows plentifully in Syria and Palestine.”
Take note of the word, “soporific.” It means “a drug that induces sleep or sleep inducing.”
Note that it “resembles wheat UNTIL the ear appears, and only then, the difference is discovered.”
When you have professed believers tell you that there is nothing wrong with “gay marriage,” at first, many considered it as misguided rhetoric. Then the Lord clued me in on James 4:4, 1 John 2:14-17, and 2 Corinthians 14-18. By accepting the poison as a result of the seed planted by the enemy, you are sleeping.
No wonder Paul occasionally said to “Wake up out of sleep and Christ shall give you light.”
Or, Paul said, “Those that sleep, sleep at night…”
When you are walking in darkness and not in the light, you are sleeping at night. The reason? The poisonous soporific.
Tares that induce sleep.
Sadly, in our own congregations are professed believers that are sympathetic to the sin that the Lord declared, “…an abomination.” Anytime you are adamantly sympathetic to a position that the Lord is against, and you refuse to see the Word of God and the truth about sin, you are hostile.
Look at what Paul said in Romans 8:7-8 from the Amplified Bible (AMP).
“Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever].
[That is] because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to Gods Law; indeed it cannot.
So then those who are living the life of the flesh [catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature] cannot please or satisfy God, or be acceptable to Him.”
Professed believers are hostile towards God because God calls their sin out and when they begin to defend an indefensible position, they are impostors. Many will say that this is a tough saying and where is the compassion? On the cross of Christ is His compassion. God demonstrated His love for man by sending His Son to die for the sins of man; condemning sin in His flesh.
At anytime, we can repent, be forgiven of sin, and walk in newness of life. Impostors is a strong word but until you willingly no longer defend the very thing that God is against, you remain an impostor. Impostors are governed by the flesh and they refuse to submit to the law of God. As the (AMP) says, they are “catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature.”
But a Genuine Believer caters to God and His Word. No matter how you feel about the matter of the sin of homosexuality, the Word rises above your feeling. The Word doesn’t even consider your feelings. The Word wants you to consider the Word. Never mind your feelings. God demands obedience to His Word.
That’s why when you talk about the issues of the day, if the Word of God is not final authority in your life, you are an impostor.
You can’t SAY that you are holy and practice unholiness or lawlessness. Many impostors that carry tares do so to poison the world and even genuine believers should they turn on the Lord and become sympathetic to the sin that God is against.
In John chapter four, Jesus was dealing with a wounded woman that was an impostor. When she talked about worship, she wasn’t serious. Jesus reminded her that the Father seeks those that worship in spirit and in truth.
An impostor is one that “makes deceitful pretenses, or the act of giving a false appearance. Hence, pretending.”
Jesus said that “By their fruits you shall know them.”
When the woman sins were exposed, she had no choice but to come clean about her life.
Sadly, some prophets of our day are impostors. They can’t call out the sins of others because of their own sins.
She had five husbands and the one that she was with was not her husband, yet, she talked about her worship of God which was under the guise of false pretense.
We have the same thing happening in our churches. Professed believers that worship God but is having immoral sex. Professed believers that worship God in the dance, praise and worship, musicians, preachers, but is committing adultery, fornication, watching porn, masturbating, are bisexual, and homosexual.
False pretense and impostors.
