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.
One of the best part of the job I had in the Navy was reading intelligence reports of potential activities from potential adversaries. These reports would give us the leg up on anyone that would attempt to make moves. We would have the upper hand in defending ourselves and ensure a decisive victory in our favor.
All across the world and in the United States, the enemy has had it’s way. The devil is taking things to another level and the church is so out to lunch that we wonder what is happening and why are we in the position that we are in today. The sad thing is that we’ve been reading the intel reports and yarning at them.
All the while the enemy built up their forces to ensure victory. Each setback is attributed to not using what we have. In order for forces to win any battle on the battlefield or battle space, they must train to win. The use of overwhelming superior force, constant training, good morals, and discipline, and unending vigilance is the only way to ensure victory.
There was a time that when a doctrine or something questionable would be preached that it would be struck down with fervent vehemence that you could feel the fear of God. Not today. Everyone is bringing a strange doctrine and no one is fighting it. We just wink at it. Worse yet, they insist on abusing Psalm 105:14-15. We get told, “Don’t you put your mouth on the man or woman of God, he or she is God’s anointed.”
There is no anointing that comes from God when the error of Scriptures is preached. God never protects error and the perpetrators of error, and He never protects the people that protect the perpetrator of preaching error. Every one of them is left out in the open in the killing field of the Lord.
Some of the churches and pastors no longer have this edge in refuting doctrine, and there is a reason.
Several months ago, I preached a message called “Compromise or Conviction.”
Compromise is usually borne out of fear.
Conviction is the courageous ability to stand your ground in the fear of the Lord in the face of the fear of men.
Such a conviction was found in Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah.
Fear is what the world would do in response to your stand in Christ. The atmosphere is filled with intimidation and fear, however, Paul told Timothy “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life.”
When the world threatens you with lawsuits, violence, and protests, they want you to capitulate. After watching some leaders refusing to hold the line in sexual discipline, it’s because they’ve compromised in secret.
The things that are hidden in leaders is what fallen leaders fear the most. The discovery of porn and masturbation is the secret world of sexual fantasy that most men do but really don’t want to be revealed. Self gratification is perversion.
Their adulterous relationship is a beeline to the root cause of their sins.
Porn and masturbation.
“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world, and the world passes away, and the lust thereof, but he that does the will of the Father abides forever.”
There are many preachers, pastors, and other ministers that claim to be apostles, prophets, and so forth that live hypocritical compromised lives. I know what it is to live like this until the Lord lovingly rescued me from the darkness. When you live in Secret Sexual Sins, it is very easy to determine the place of compromise. At first, masturbation was an innocent thing. Or so I thought. When it comes to compromise, all that matters is what you think.
You do not think that your relationship with the Lord is on a decline. When you do not call what you are doing a sin, it is very easy to sin.
Such is the thing with LGBT.
As long as homosexuality is not a sin but an orientation, it is very easy to engage in this sin, or any sin for that matter.
Such is the case with lying. If you do not think that lying is a wrong, you can lie all day long. As long as you do not think that sin is sin, you can sin all day long.
The Holy Spirit’s job is to convict the world of sin (see John 16:8-11). The word “convict” means to “convince or to bring to light.”
The Word of God and the presence of God on the Word is the primary way the Holy Spirit convicts. If people in and outside the church refuses to hear the Word of God, or are not convicted when the Word comes, then consequential judgment comes.
1 Corinthians 11:31 says….
“For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.”
Listen to the Amplified Version of this verse.
“For if we searchingly examined ourselves [detecting our shortcomings and recognizing our own condition], we should not be judged and penalty decreed [by the divine judgment].”
Look at what the book of Hebrews 12:5 tells us….
“My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; for whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives.”
In the Corinthian church, they would take communion unworthily or in the wrong manner. Judgment came in the house. Some would take communion and end up sick, or they would die because they didn’t discern or understood the purpose of communion. This judgment was the result.
So it is in the church. The Lord loves us so much that He brings these things to us to correct us so that we would not be judged with the world. However, very few will take heed and the obvious course of action is to bring judgment.
As I survey the land, you look at many of the churches today (AA African Americans) that advertise their meetings, and what do you see?
Empowerment. Purpose. Destiny. Empowerment. Financial Breakthrough. Money. Hip Hop R&B Praise and Worship and Dance.
Essentially, the world is comfortable with the church and pastors are responsible, and will be held accountable. So comfortable that we now have reality TV and other worldly entertainment operating in the church. The abomination is in the house of the Lord. These pastors got it so backwards that when you attempt to correct them, they are prepared to curse you and condemn you. When they do this, it is a clear indication that they are full of themselves. When you believe you are final authority, your train is about to reach the end of the line.
These, and other cliche`s have been used to pull people into places where the Lord is not. Then you look at Praise and Worship, and you see the line up. I’ve often wondered what would happen if someone advertised a line up of just “Special Guest Artist: Jesus Christ.”
I know what would happen. No one would show up.
Conviction will keep the loins in the den from feeding on you.
Compromise will ring the lion’s dinner bell.
Conviction of faith means that you will never cross God, but you will remain faithful to Him. Conviction means that you will endure temptation and not fall prey to the tempter. Conviction of faith means that you will fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life. Conviction of faith means that you love God more than you love sin.
When it comes to conviction, it means that you are fully convinced of the fear of God in your life.
Compromise means that you are quick to cross God and commit adultery. Adultery against God is worse than committing adultery against your wife. Compromise means that you are willing to look lustfully at another woman instead of keeping your eyes on God. Compromise means that the Word of God means nothing to you and the word of the world means more. Compromise means that your love for the sin you love is stronger than your love for God. Compromise means that you will listen to the songs of the world and listen to the songs of faith. Compromise means that you are determined to have it both ways when the Father is looking for faithfulness from you. Compromise means that you will cheat on God while acting like you are faithful.
Racism and bigotry during the Civil Rights movement was a regular thing among my predecessors. They endured much pain and hardship.
My first pastor, the late Reverend Dr. Benjamin James Lowry marched with the late Dr. Martin Luther King and was also arrested.
While I was too young to understand racism, being a little younger than the children of MLK, I fully understood it while in the Navy and even reverse racism or black on black racism.
Please take a look at this article and then come back.
It is very easy for me, as an African American, to get upset about the negative actions of a lone white homosexual male in response to a peaceful protest against same sex marriage.
LGBT would love to read about any Christian spewing venom on their level. But having been born again, it’s not in my new nature in Christ to bust a vein. Most of my predecessors didn’t and neither should I act ill about this. Neither should any of my fellow African Americans.
What we are to do is speak the truth in love. Truth never asked to be like. Truth asks to be told like it is.
TRUTH: It is nothing new to speak of our outrage that the sin of homosexuality was lump summed into Civil Rights. Pushing African Americans aside to bring to the forefront the sin of homosexuality.
On the backs of Blacks, they have found another way to suppress the true essence of Civil Rights. Sadly, African Americans that do not know better have accepted this lie. Sadly, it underscores the measure of ignorance in their minds. A clear refusal to intelligently look at the purpose of Civil Rights.
As even more profound is that some of the alleged African American leadership accepted this lie. Including the NAACP, an out of touch organization that is clearly disorganized. And as crazy as it sounds, it seems to me that they believe every word of LGBT’s lies.
Civil Rights was and always will be about race, not sex.
People can look at my skin and I do not have a closet to run to and hide my skin color. But sexual immorality needs a closet. Homosexuality needs a closet. The shame of acting on the lusts of the flesh in “vile passions” is abhorring, disgusting, sinful, and it is an abomination.
To hide the shame, the closet is the only place to hide should one desire to continue in sin. But you can come out. But the purpose of hijacking the Civil Rights Movement is to mask the sin of homosexuality by any means necessary.
It is the continued tactic of LGBT. They are counting on certain African Americans to remain silent and let it go. But for years, African Americans have been suppressed and oppressed.
No longer silent, the counterattack against all sexual immorality is underway.
To normalize homosexuality is the ongoing agenda.
They have chosen two platforms.
Legislation and Civil Rights.
For this to be successful, the church, the “pillar and ground of the truth,” must be silenced, overtly and covertly infiltrated, compromised, persecuted, harassed, and intimidated.
The church, according to LGBT proponents, must be redefined as an out of touch, intolerant group of people, bent on infringing the basic rights of the citizens of America.
As far as this is concerned, according to the constitution of the United States, no one special group should jump to the head of the line. But the LGBT agenda is designed to do just that and on the backs of African Americans. The very ones that only ask for a level playing field as humans.
Africans did not come by choice.
Africans came by way of chains; forced labor.
Could it be possible that the children of Niniveh served as a precursor of the events of African America slavery?
Check out this passage of Scripture in Nahum 3, verses 8 through 10….
“Are you (Niniveh) better than No Amon that was situated by the River, that had the waters around her, whose rampart was the sea, whose wall was the sea? Ethiopia and Egypt were her strength, and it was boundless; Put and Lubim were your (Niniveh’s) helpers. Yet she was carried away, she went into captivity; her young children also were dashed to pieces at the head of every street; they cast lots for her honorable men, and all her great men were bound in chains.”
Take note of Ethiopia and Egypt, Put and Lubim. These are descendants of Ham, Noah’s middle son. Ham means black. No, do not let the word Egypt throw you. It is Mizraim. As a side note, the Philistines are descendants of Mizraim (see Genesis 10).
Back to Nahum, the people of Niniveh were carried away in chains but the mention of these Black nations gives tremendous prophetic evidence of what was to come on the shores of Jamestown in the 1500’s.
Discrimination was a term brought about to define human suppression and oppression of one race against another. Discrimination was designed to define one race of people as greater than another by imposing rules (Jim Crow laws).
Segregation is the tool of choice to enforce race oppression and suppression. Superiority of another race was the obvious goal. But what has happened is that this form of racism has now shifted to the sin of homosexuality called “Conversion of Perversion.”
If the sin of homosexuality could be called “hate” then the sin of homosexuality could be converted into being called discrimination. And therefore, it is no longer the sin of homosexuality. It’s the normalization or acceptance of perversion. Even the word perversion is discriminating and is deemed as hate language.
But the goal is also to segregate the church. The righteousness of God must be sequestered. The righteousness of God in Christ must be deemed as a discriminatory organization. Just like Whites oppressing Blacks is discriminatory.
In essence, White people are using the language of Civil Rights like Black people. They are using Civil Rights language to segregate Black people in the church. Yes, it’s both sides of the fence. Racism and discrimination when it suits their sins. Calling righteous people discriminating and intolerant but they use discriminatory terms against Black people.
It’s also called “sexual orientation”and anyone that calls a sexual orientation of the sin of homosexuality a sin, is a bigot.
But wait a minute.
We thought that bigotry is about racism.
No. It is now inclusive of sexual immorality. But it’s not called sexual immorality. It’s converted into sexual orientation. The hijacking is complete. The convolution is complete. Now it is a law and the march towards federalizing the sin of homosexuality inches closer.
But states have fought against the federalization of the sin of homosexuality with tremendous success. 32 states have successfully pushed back and we are now seeing LGBT operating at a breakneck pace to hold the line, and to keep pushing for normalization of an abomination.
So when they see signs that unashamedly advocate marriage between one man and one woman, instead of getting over it, they are attacking people that stand for the truth. LGBT is trying to tell us to get over it but the odds are against them in more ways than they could ever imagine.
Remember, LGBT people only make up 4% of the American population and they intend to make gains to increase this number but it is very hard to do because if they had the ability to procreate, then they would be successful. But they have to use other means and it is not as successful as some would have you to think.
When it comes to some misguided African Americans, they refuse the truth, and believe the lie. And there is very little that you can do to persuade them. Sadly, my people remain ignorant by choice.
We didn’t ask for our skin color. We were born with this heritage. But sin is a choice. Sin is a preference based on urges and impulses.
As the Lord was teaching me about sexuality, He asked me a question.
“What is the ultimate goal of sex.”
I got “revelatory” on the Holy Spirit. Sometimes, it’s not a smart thing to do.
I answered, “It’s about procreation and connection.”
He said to me, “Right. But what is it that you really want out of sex?”
A good orgasm.
Getting off is the same. It is just the way or preference of achieving orgasm that makes sex sex.
When it comes to sin, the pleasures of sin is the driving force behind fighting against righteousness. God never said that you can’t have sex, except that He requires that for you to have sex, you need to be husband and wife. This is within His ordinance recorded in Genesis 2:24 where sex is authorized.
Sexual immorality is the perversion sex and all sexual immorality is about having sex your way. In utter perversion. Achieving the orgasm remains the same.
The only difference is the preference by CHOICE!
The convicting power of her signs hit this man and this attack by this white man was a deliberate, unprovoked attack on a pregnant African American female.
I condemn this act of violence and bigotry in the name of Jesus.
The only remedy for sin is the precious blood of Jesus. The cross of Christ where our sins were nailed. There is no other remedy and there is no other way of escape from sin and it’s consequences.
Repentance is commanded of every sinner, regardless of preference. Otherwise, “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23.
There is no question that the large part of those in LGBT want to keep to themselves because it is a further revelation of the true concept of what is the driving force behind their cause.
Some LGBT people have made this clear, but when it comes to addressing this issue, the church has no choice but to vehemently confront and condemn the intentional hijacking of the Civil Rights Movement to redefine marriage. The church must vehemently condemn the sin of homosexuality because the God of the Bible calls this sin “an abomination.”
While it is underscored by the HIV/AIDS virus and centuries ago, by the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, the sin of homosexuality is an abomination, both sides must be restrained in their emotions.
There is extremism on both sides that need to be reigned in.
The church and LGBT has crossed the lines before in the area of extremism to bolster their positions for and against gay marriage. But we all know that the moral conscience is aware that when a person sins any sin, the conscience of man, the voice of the human spirit, will either be suppressed or convicted.
In the case of this white man, his emotions got the best of him. Passionate about keeping his sin, he was convicted. The conviction turned into rage and it could have easily escalated to the next level.
A physical assault.
In the Book of Acts, Stephen, in chapter 7, gave a power presentation and finished his discourse by calling the Jews, “Stiffed neck and uncircumcised in heart.” Their fathers resisted the Holy Spirit and they resisted in the same manner. This caused a commotion. In rage, they attacked Stephen. They sinked their teeth in to him, and stoned him. This rage reminds me of the fight between Holyfield and Tyson when Tyson bit a piece of the ear of Holyfield.
It’s also called gnashing of teeth.
It’s a behavior of rage that blinds a person of all reasoning. Usually, it’s after it’s all over that they sit there and ask themselves what have they done.
As far as EX Ministries is concerned, an attempt was made to hack into their FB page. It appears that when the church speaks truth, LGBT resort to tactics to suppress the truth just like Paul said in Romans chapter one. EX Ministries as with GCMWatch and other powerful blogs are hitting the world with truth.
It is affecting, not only the world, but the minds of saints that do not have a clue as to the eternal ramifications of sin in the world and in the church.
Truth hurts, but truth must be told regardless of who gets hurt. The purpose of hurting truth is to compel you to repent. Otherwise, truth is still marching on……….towards you.
Instead of letting the truth stand, they attack the truth to justify the sin of homosexuality. And it would be a crying shame if it weren’t so pathetic.
But that’s what the Word does. That’s what the Holy Spirit does according to what the Lord Jesus said in John 16:8-11. Either LGBT proponents will attack to suppress, or they will repent because of conviction of the heart that homosexuality is a sin.
We must remember that when people act with malicious intent, they appear as immature. They will do everything as little children because to them, attacking the truth is a game. But when it comes to truth, in this life, it is a deposition before trial. When they stand before the judgment seat, called the Great White Throne, there will be no games. There will be no deals. There will be no defense for the wicked.
EX Ministries, we stand with you in the fight to put truth out in hopes that people would catch themselves before they fall into the lake of fire and brimstone, the smoke of their torment ascending forever. As the Lord said, He takes no pleasure int he death of the wicked.
And neither should we.
When you go to church this Sunday, some of you already what is going on sexually in your church. Women talk more than men in church but men, in secret, already have in mind what they intend to do after service is over. The premeditation in the minds of men have already set the course of events that will take place after the benediction.
Inside many churches, it is normal for mating outside of marriage to occur.
Sexual immorality is normal in the church. There was a day when sexual immorality was a shame. Pregnancies were a definite no no.
Now out of wedlock pregnancies is normal. And that’s the ongoing agenda of LGBT.
If we normalize homosexuality and lesbianism….if we can convince them that what we do is absolutely normal, it will acceptable by society.
Because sexual immorality is normal in the church. Just look at all the the music coming from those that practiced the sin of homosexuality. Songs that churches all across accepted and sing from the keyboard and lips of practicing homosexuals. Because the songs are so anointed, we accept it as normal. Hence, their sin is normal and singing their songs in normal, and thus, sexual immorality is normal.
Not realizing that the connections to sexual immorality goes all the way back to the high places of idol worship, male and female temple prostitutions, and out of womb abortions.
And we wonder why we can’t break the sin of sexual immorality in the church.
We have yet to remove the high place.
Almost every Israelite king that ascended to the throne that refused to follow in their father’s wicked footsteps, removed the idols, but never removed the high place.
The church has done the same thing. We refuse to remove the high place.
We still have “imaginations (reasonings) and every HIGH THING that exalts itself against the knowledge of God…”
These “reasonings” is what gives power to idolatry and sexual immorality connected to idolatry in the church. We worship our warp reasonings and we worship God as if God accepted our reasoning to have sin and righteousness simultaneously.
It’s a sexual jungle in the church.
At least the animals were created to do what they do (barring animalistic homosexuality- some of y’all may remember the gay penguins incident) and it is legal. Because they are animals. But when church members become animalistic sex maniacs, with no fear of God in their hearts, it is no surprise why LGBT is able to establish themselves as the morality police and boldly attempt to tell the church what the Bible says, or what they want you to think what the Bible said.
What’s your proof, pastor?
I ask this questions to all who profess Jesus as Lord. If you are a true believer in the Lord Jesus Christ……
are you voting for Barack Obama?
If you said yes, then you have accepted the normalization of homosexuality and abortion.
And don’t tell me the line….. “I don’t agree with everything that he is saying but we got to support him” churchianity two step. You cannot support sin in any shape, form, or fashion. How can you support the very thing that God is against? You are no different than the sinning angels that committed treason in heaven and attempted to remove God off His throne. The war in heaven was about changing the Management by assassination.
Therefore, for you to support the very thing that God kicked the devil out for, you are in line with James 4:4.
You are an enemy of God.
Jesus said that the devil was a murderer from the beginning. This is in reference to the Garden, but if he had the intent to murder Adam and Eve, it is a no brainer that he wanted to kill God too. Well…..he had his shot when Jesus died because the devil thought that if Jesus died, Jesus would no longer be able to be the Son of God. The devil thought that he would be able to hold Jesus captive for all eternity.
Or, check this out….
God. I have Your Son. If you want Him back, give me Your throne.
Just a thought.
No Scripture to substantiate this. So toss it aside.
But God had other plans.
This sinless Jesus took a sinful devil and paraded him around Hades on day one. On day three, Jesus was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father and the keys of death and hell were turned over to Jesus.
Jesus rose with all power in His hand.
You know it takes sex to conceive and according to the CDC, “98% of abortions are unintentional pregnancies” requiring the sacrifice of the unborn to cover the sin of fornication or adultery. 2.4 million couples will fornicate and conceive out of wedlock and 1.2 million babies will be murdered. 49% of these women will profess that they are believers of the Lord Jesus Christ.
So let me ask you again…..Are you voting for the first president that affirmed, unequivocally the sin of homosexuality?
What does this have to do with sexual immorality in the church?
If sin is normal, and you are a professed, rather confused believer, it’s because you no longer view Biblical holiness and righteousness as a requirement for being a believer in Christ and thus, render the church as no longer the moral instrument of God, “the pillar and ground of the truth,” to bring conviction to the world by the Holy Spirit.
It is impossible to tell the world about sin when the church loves the very thing God hates. The very thing that started the trouble in His heaven in the first place. The very thing that He sent Jesus to die for.
Orgies in the church. It happens more often than you could take a stick to an Acorn tree.
Ask your pastor if he or she had ever watched porn or masturbated and continues to practice these sins. I dare you. I double dog dare you!!!!
If you do not get a point blank “No,” but an agreement that such activity is normal sexual behavior, then you are not a part of the church of Philadelphia in the book of Revelation.
A pastor gets caught with his pants down. The church covers it up. He ministers next Sunday. And then he does it again.
The first time, he may be a “wanderer,” according to a book called, “Betrayal of Trust.”
In the same book, if multiple episodes occur in one or more places, he is called a “predator.”
In other places, some churches are a harem.
The kind of harem that I described in my last blog, “The Five Kinds Of Sinful Women To Seriously Avoid.”
Sexually immoral woman go to these churches, looking to have sex with the pastor, or any available, gullible, foolish undisciplined male.
The Proverbs 7 kind of male pastor. Or any foolish male for that matter.
When it comes to sexual immorality among pastors, when the discovery occurs, what does the local church do about it?
They cover it up because you do not want to end the church and throw the church into turmoil. You try to restore the pastor, salvage his marriage, and keep it moving.
No harm. No foul.
But the Bible tells us to do otherwise.
First, when it comes to a pastor or elder, Paul gives this powerful Word in 1 Timothy 5:19-20.
“Do not receive an accusation against an elder except from two or three witnesses. Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear.”
Then Paul also gives another Holy Spirit punch from Ephesians 5:8-13.
“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.”
We all know that the traps are set to trip up anyone that isn’t walking sober and refuses to be vigilant. That’s what Peter admonishes all of us to do in 1 Peter 5:8-9a.
The worse thing that a church could do is agree to cover up sin in the church. Equally worse is when they cover up a sexual crime in the church.
You see, this is what gives LGBT the best argument. They see that the enemy has completely overrun the church. This is not a breach situation. This is a complete rout where no prisoners live. Those that have escaped according to 1 Corinthians 10:13 refuse to be taken back to the prison house of sexual sins. We refuse to allow sin to take us.
We accept this call to go and fight for those that desire freedom from sexual immorality.
We must stop making excuses and admit that the church is not in serious trouble.
It is completely awash in Secret Sexual Sins. We still have pastors preaching and watching porn and masturbating, and preaching in our pulpits with no shame or guilt. We still have choir members sleeping with the musicians.
We still have homosexual musicians playing on the keyboards and organs with impunity. We still have deacons, married and unmarried, having sex outside of marriage or fornicating. We still have praise dancers struggling with homosexuality. They are going to the gay bars, and then on Sunday morning, they dance under the “anointing.”
We have conferences. Christian conferences all across the country and pastors, ministers, and other male Christians turn on porn before they go and minister or be a part of the “festivities.”
XXXChurch.com gave a statistic that the average time spent while watching porn in a hotel room is 12 minutes. The madness of orgies in the church continues unabated. Just ask around the folks in your own church. Be daring enough to find out what’s really going on in your church. Or maybe you already know and you just go with the flow.
If the Lord were to uncover the mass defection of His people that engage in defiance of God in the church in America, and the massive abominations of sexual immorality in the church, it would make the participants of LGBT look like saints of God.
As one king after another in the Historical section of the OT came about, many of them failed to do one thing.
Remove the high place.
Before the children of Israel occupied the land, the Canaanites built high places for their temple worship. Their high places were used for three things.
1. Worship of Idols.
2. Sacrifice of babies (out of womb abortion).
3. Sexual immorality.
There were temple prostitutes, both male and female, ready to “service” the worshippers.
As I was studying this out, I wondered why in the world would the nation of Israel would forsake God and chase after idols. Then the revelation came. This revelation came after I came out of the blindness of my own heart as a sexually sinning believer.
Sometimes when you are walking in the place of sexual sins, the meanings are completely obscured. But when you come to yourself by the Holy Spirit, the light reveals a lot of things.
Sex was the driving factor of Israel’s idolatry.
After David committed adultery with Bathsheba and killed Uriah the Hittite, Solomon took over the throne just before David’s death. The apple never falls far from the tree. Solomon had 1000 women and they all turned his heart away from the Lord. The Bible tells us that he “loved many women.”
These women worshipped other gods and turned Solomon’s heart to do the same. I do not buy the argument that Solomon did this as part of his diplomacy to keep peace among the nations. When the Lord commanded the nation of Israel to subdue the nations they were to completely annihilate these nations so that the sinful habits of these nations would not infiltrate and flourish in the land of Israel.
If you study Numbers chapters 19 through 25, you will see that the children of Israel were defeated at the plains of Moab by sexually immoral women. The plan to stop the slaughter of the nations before Israel was to get God to curse Israel (the Balaam and Balak show).
It didn’t work.
But Balaam thought about this a minute and devised a plan that the Lord Jesus revealed to His apostle, John recorded in Revelation 2:12-17.
Get the nation to curse itself by committing sexual immorality. Get them to get God mad at them.
We see the same thing today in the church.
Worship and Sexual Immorality.
For years, the church has been bound and cannot escape the temptation of sexual immorality.
In 1 Corinthians 7, Paul gives the answer to solve sexual immorality in the church.
But males, these days are scared to commit. My wife and I were talking about this. I said that it’s a shame. Men are not afraid to go to war. Into harms way. Men are not afraid of getting in the ring to get their heads bashed in. But when it comes to commitment and marriage, they turn yellow belly.
When the Lord created our bodies, it wasn’t for the purpose of perversion.
What would happen if someone came into your home and tracked dirt on your white carpet? You would get upset because you had to clean up their mess. Right?
While sinners will not understand this, believers, you must understand that your body is not yours.
Listen to the message Bible of 1 Corinthians 6:18-20….
“There is a sense in which sexual sins are different from all others. In sexual sin we violate the sacredness of our own bodies, these bodies that were made for God- given and God- modeled love, for “becoming one” with another. Or didn’t you realize that your body is a sacred place, the place of the Holy Spirit? Don’t you see that you can’t live however you please, squandering what God paid such a high price for? The physical part of you is not some piece of property belonging to the spiritual part of you. God owns the whole works. So let people see God in and through your body.”
What happens when we commit sexual immorality with our bodies? Remember, our bodies is the temple of the Holy Spirit. So if we commit sexual sins, we are desecrating His temple.
What happens when we desecrate the temple?
Look at 1 Corinthians 3:16-17……..
“Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.”
Now you can see why 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 is there.
Here is where the church, the believers that profess Jesus as Lord has been missing it.
We’ve been worshipping ourselves in sexual immorality. We worship our organs. We worship our orgasms.
I know. It’s gross but you do not realize that you are idolizing yourselves and worshipping yourselves and you have assumed the throne over your bodies to commit sexual immorality at will.
The hands that are to be lifted before the Lord are to be holy.
Instead, they are lifted in Secret Sexual Sin.
The hands that have touched ourselves in self sex or in touching others in adultery, fornication, and homosexuality, we raise these same hands to God.
Not in repentance, but in utter defiance. Our defiled temples are worshipped without any thought to cleanse the temple.
The abominations continue each week and we have not stopped to think about the fact that we’ve grieved God. We are so indifferent that we do not care what God thinks. Though at times, the Lord looks at us and desires for us to simply repent before it’s too late.
Every temple that is defiled must be destroyed.
The devil’s only pleasure is when you refuse to walk free of the cycle of addiction, and you find yourself bound in an opened cell. The shackles and chains that bind you were removed by the Lord Jesus on the cross of Calvary.
The only thing that is holding you where you are is your will to stay. The devil cannot make you stay because Jesus did everything possible to free you and you are looking through an open cell that leads you all the way out of the entire prison house.
His demonic forces, incubus and succubus, rome the world in the spirit realm, looking to have sex with sleeping men and women.
As a result, the temple is desecrated.
And the Lord is not about to let your temple stand.
It’s destroyed. And when we up the ante and “act out” with another person in adultery, fornication (porn), masturbation (self sex), and homosexuality, the price is paid in full.
How is it destroyed?
STDs, HIV/AIDS, and other forms connected to death. Drugs, alcohol. The seamless fabric of sexual immorality is everywhere. But the ultimate thing is that we worship eroticism. We worship our ability to seduce men and women into the defiled bedroom and commit sex acts in the search for love, intimacy, and sexual supremacy of bodies.
And that’s why our worship services are so jacked up. So many people come in bound sexually and they are trying to worship God, but they return home to the place of their sexual chain post. Lock themselves up. And commit sexual immorality.
They worship themselves in lascivious living and are raising their hands to themselves. To worship sex.
Then they come to the facility where the church assembles and mingle with the righteous. Like a virus, sexual immorality spreads. Temple prostitutes come and offer sex to preachers, ministers, deacons, ushers. Destroying marriages. Abortions. Homosexuality.
All up in the church.
If we do not break and destroy MOAB, The Mother Of All Battles, we will see more scandals than at any time. The mighty will fall. More predominant men and women of God falling into sexual sins.
If the church doesn’t turn to God and leave behind on the cross their flesh and renew the mind, the people of God will continue to defy God and that leads to the overthrow and destruction of their temple (bodies).
The taking of Communion will curse and doom many. The meal designed to commemorate the Lord’s death is now a meal that commemorates sin, and the Lord will not let the meal of celebration, and remembrance of Him be used as a meal to commemorate sexual immorality, or any sin, for that matter.
You can stop bowing at the altar of masturbation, porn, adultery, fornication, bisexuality, and homosexuality. Un-employ every demon and drive your flesh to the wilderness and seek God in humility, cleansing yourself from the filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Destroy the altar and crucify the flesh.
Right where you are, just repent and ask for the Lord forgiveness. Ask Him to change your ways and to give you grace to overcome the next temptation that will come in the next moment or tonight.
There comes a point where you have to stand and fight.
This is the moment.
You have read many blogs on how to defeat sexual immorality. It is time to put it all together and defeat this. There is nothing too hard for the Lord and there is nothing that is impossible, if you ask the Lord to help you to live holy, moment by moment.
Turn your worship of you off, and worship God. Dethrone yourself and enthrone God. Crown Him King of kings and Lord of lords. Lift up your heads, O you gates and let the King of glory come in.
Do we really know what it means?
Do we really have a clue?
I watched a video that was posted on FB that was disturbing.
A group of pastors sitting around discussing the sin of homosexuality, how sin is all in their churches. And they have compromised, capitulated, and conceded defeat to the devil.
THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!!!!!
One said that if weren’t for homosexuals, there would be no music. Another said, that he didn’t have a problem with homosexuals in leadership so long as they were “repentant.” Another said that this sin is from the pulpit to the door. One pastor kept using the word “slip or slipped up.”
We’ve gone from an Eddie Long train wreck, to mistake, to slip up. When will we call it sin? Because sin demands repentance, confession, forsaking or laying aside sin, forever.
Filled with a lying spirit, heretical Carlton Pearson said that if homosexuals don’t come to church the church would be empty.
Well at least the church would be clean.
What kind of stupidity is that?
HERE’S IS WHY?
There is no conviction of the Holy Spirit. Get it? HOLY SPIRIT.
Holy Spirit left an unholy place.
If you are comfortable with sin, you are uncomfortable with God and His convicting Word.
Let me point something out. God wants all sinners, practicing sinners to come to the church but not to be comfortable with their sin.
With carnal sinners this is what happen in our churches; you to upchuck vomit and then eat it again. And then upchuck the same vomit and eat it again, sometimes smiling.
Turn from your wicked ways. He didn’t say keep on turning.
As I was talking with my brother in the Lord, Pastor Darren Butler, of International Good News Fellowship, both he and his lovely wife, Pastor Patricia Butler are the pastors there and by the way, it’s rare to find a pastor who happens to be a holy, sanctified, consecrated, married, music minister.
He said when the world takes one step forward, the church takes three steps backwards. Any way he started talking about hell. And it struck me further that the church is off message.
“There is no fear of God before their eyes””,” the Bible says as Pastor Roger Jamison would quote.
They think hell is comfortable. Hell is nothing but torment that awaits them. We warn them that hell is not a comfortable place.
It burns with fire and brimstone forever. Wickedness was paid for at the cross on the body of Jesus. His sacrifice is the only sacrifice that will save a person from hell.
They are not convicted of sin.
This sort of concession is the very thing that must be avoided.
Just because the people fail to live according to the Word it doesn’t mean that the Word failed.
A spirit, a lying demonic spirit entered their mouths and they are now lying devils like a dog by the fire place. You can’t confront sin because some of them look like they are in the sin themselves. If not homosexuals themselves, they are definitely in some form of self gratification, fornication, masturbation situation.
SAY IT OUT OF YOUR MOUTH….I HATE SIN! TELL THE DEVIL THAT YOU HATE SIN. YOU HATE WICKEDNESS. YOU HATE EVIL. YOU HATE THE DEVIL!!!!!!
BUT I LOVE GOD. I LOVE RIGHTEOUSNESS. I LOVE PURITY. I LOVE SANCTIFICATION. I LOVE HOLINESS.
I wonder how they would exegete John 5:14, 8:11, Romans 6:12-14, 1 John chapters 1 and 2, and James 4:4.
It seems that not one of these so called pastors had their Bibles. No one opened up the Scripture to see what the Word said. Not one of them.
You know what is next?
I REBUKE THEM AND VEHEMENTLY CONDEMN THEIR FALSE JUSTIFICATION FOR ACCEPTING THE SIN OF HOMOSEXUALITY AND EVERY OTHER SIN TO HAVE SAFE HAVEN IN THE HOUSE OF GOD.
They were wise in their own eyes.
I don’t know how recent the video was made but these pastors were pastoring churches in the Tidewater area of Virginia or it’s vicinity. If you know anything about the Tidewater area, it’s Norfolk, Suffolk, Portsmouth, Hampton Roads, Virginia Beach.
If you are in the Tidewater area, AVOID THEM LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!
You think I am joking. Click this link….http://youtu.be/oiAx6ingTTM
For the most part, we know that at the beginning, when sin was introduced, Adam and Eve never repented. All they had were excuses.
Sin by Adam and Eve:
Adam and Eve: Oh oh. We naked, let’s cover ourselves. Oh man…what are we gonna do… God is coming…quick, let’s hide over there.
God: Adam, where are you? Who told you that you were naked?
Adam: “The woman You gave me.”
Eve: “The serpent beguiled me.”
The devil had no excuse.
He left the serpent to be punished but we know in ear shot, the Lord made sure that the devil got his in Genesis 3:15.
In all of this, there is only remorse and excuses.
Not even a hint of “godly sorrow that works repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted…”
There is no other way to deal with sin.
People caught in the grips of sin are always looking for a loop hole to continue in sin but there is no loop hole when it comes to sinning against the Lord. Yet, we try so hard to make a way to find a place where we can sin and make God accept it.
God is merciful but God isn’t stupid.
God is gracious but He isn’t stupid.
There are many people that call me and several other people “Pharisaical.”
Or that we are “self righteous.”
For 33 years, I committed the sin of masturbation. For 10 of those years, from 1998 to 2008, I was a porn addict that intensified the fuel and fire of sexual addiction in my flesh. Since the call of God upon my life on Saturday, September 7th, 1979 till 2009, the sin of masturbation dominated me.
And because I made provision of the flesh by returning to the vomit, masturbation relapse occurred. It’s because I was stupid and didn’t apply the Scriptures. Then the Lord said to me, Remember to “put it all together.” Love Me and hate sin. And you will never sin that sin again.
Put it all together means put what you heard from God to work on all cylinders.
Level one sex addict.
Guilty as charged.
Entering the pulpit, was a pastor that couldn’t repent but found a way to abuse God and His grace.
You can’t preach about holiness with lust in your heart.
You won’t preach about holiness because you can’t. So since you can’t preach about holiness, you cannot expect the people to live holy. So they enter the church and are comfortable about it. You know that your sin is safe because the pastor’s sin was safe.
I never really preached on righteousness, except the perverted way of connecting walking in righteousness with prosperity ONLY, not with pleasing the Lord in walking in holiness, which is complete separation from living the way the world walks.
Righteousness is not about a reward system for being a good child of God.
Righteousness is about standing right with God. Righteousness is about right thinking of God. Righteousness is about relating rightly with God in spirit and in truth. In unbroken fellowship with God. Not on the level of Adam but on the level of how Jesus relates with the Father.
The relational revelation of the Father and Son is an eternal example of what the Lord desired in man.
You can be in the world but not of the world. Jesus proved that point (see Luke 4:1-13, 2 Corinthians 5:21 and Hebrews 2:17-18, 4:12-16).
When you repent and break free of these things, the power of God is always there. Not to enter sin again but to help me to be free from it forever.
It’s just that I never repented.
My sexual needs were more important than the God of my salvation.
My love for masturbation and lusts of the flesh drove my every move.
I didn’t care about how God felt because my needs were more important than His will.
What was important was that I got off.
Excuse after excuse fueled my passion for fulfilling the desires of the flesh and the mind. This hypocrisy was going to end one way or another. Either in continuation of ministry in righteousness or in Pharisaical hypocrisy.
So if anyone wants to call me a Pharisee, call me one because my righteousness didn’t exceed the ones the Lord Jesus talked about. If you are going to call me a Pharisee, call my one because I was a hypocrite. But if you are going to call me a Pharisee, it can’t be because I now live the truth about the Word of righteousness and now can command with all true Biblical authority people to repent and leave their sin behind according to Hebrews 12:1.
Recently, the accusation of being a Pharisee was a clear indication to me that when you are dealing with exposing sin, you will be called some things that make you scratch your head. Peter did say do not be surprised when you are persecuted because of doing right. Never suffer persecution as a murderer or thief.
When you are dealing with sin and repentance, preachers are held to a higher standard.
There are many pastors that watch many people come to church in search for help. Deliverance from SSA, adultery, fornication, pornography, masturbation, bisexuality, and fetishes of a sexually perverted nature. There were stories of women that were in adulterous relationships with their pastors and they refuse to break away. They know that they were home wreckers but they never find the place to repent and break the soul tie.
Their supposed world of love and connection to a male was more important than being connected to God. And fearing a disconnection, it would plunge them into the despair they seemingly came out of. The fear of loneliness and the feeling of low self esteem because they believe the lie of unattractiveness, pressures them to pursue an “anointed” man of God.
First, it is sin. God is grieved.
Second, never mind your personal needs. You hurt God.
Your needs is your needs, but God was violated. You need to start by repenting. Then to make your repentance real, pack your things and leave that pastor or whoever. Shacking up has nothing to stand on and is unjustified.
Sin can never be justified.
Sin will cause you to bust hell wide open.
Your needs take a back seat to the heart of God and His Word.
You were not created for your personal pleasures. You were created for His pleasure because Revelation 4:11 says, “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by your will they exist and were created.”
We were created at the pleasure of the Lord.
In the book of Ezra, the nation of Israel came out of captivity and they brought foreign wives with them. The men were told to put them out. The recognized that they needed to put God above their needs and feelings.
The foreign women were put out.
To please God, there are things that you got to put out to make things right with God if your repentance is going to be real.
The rules of experiencing the power of redemption always begin with recognizing that you hurt God.
You violated the Word of God for sin is lawlessness. You took advantage of the grace of God and revolved. You weren’t serious about breaking free. You were just trying to find peace from the conscious fact that you sinned.
That’s why He put it in the Word of God because no matter how many ways you come up to try to have it your way and disregard God’s way, what is going to stand at the end of the day is three things.
1. God is faithful to His Word.
2. God never changed.
3. God never lied.
That’s why man is always trying to discredit the Word because if you can discredit the Word, you can discredit God but at the end of the day, the Bible stays the same.
The God of the Bible and the Bible was here before us and they will be here, should Jesus tarry, after us.
Today, we see the same thing.
We see that error was done and people are forced to render an account or act so big to repent.
We look to excuse our way out instead of repent.
Does this sound familiar JCAAPB?
When the earthly ministry of the Lord Jesus was about to take place, John the Baptist, the forerunner of Christ, the “Elijah” that was to come both heralded the message.
We rarely hear this in our pulpits because we preachers are scared to tell people that they need to repent. In a nutshell, repent means, to turn. But what we have done is that we are provided elasticity to repentance.
We look at one portion of Scripture and we say, “It says this but I don’t think it means that.”
Since when we are allowed to change the meaning, the contexts, the way the word “repent” is used in the Bible?
Who in the world do we think we are?
Granted, we all have sinned or fall short of the mark but when you hear preachers and pastors sit around and expand the definition of repentance, we are in trouble.
In Matthew 15, the Lord said that the Pharisee changed the commandment because of their traditions. In other words, they decided that since the commandment is a problem. The spiritual leadership refused to enforce the commandment of the law and people were allowed to sin at will because the priests refused to do the law themselves.
Evidence was the message that the Lord preached in Matthew 13 in that He called them hypocrites. Living one way and intentionally living in sin.
For repentance to be real this is the benchmark of repentance.
“He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever CONFESSES (1 John 1:9) and FORSAKES (Hebrews 12:1) them will have mercy (Hebrews 4:16).
They don’t preach this stuff like they used to.
But the Lord is raising up Course Changers that will not flinch or capitulate. Who will not bow their knee to Baal. Who will stand to please God and be true to Him at all times in unbroken fellowship.
Are You One?
What’s really at stake here?
For now, allegedly, we have seen one man use a strong arm tactic (threat of a lawsuit) to obtain the right to wear an insignia of the Joint College of Bishops of the African American Pentecostal Bishops.
From Bishop J Delano Ellis, on the Joint College FB page, in response, he called O. C. Allen, a practicing homosexual, “Bishop Allen.”
There is no implication or guess work here.
It is clear by his own words that O. C. Allen is a “Brother Bishop.”
The danger that is presented is that many will now flock to the Joint College, knowing that because one person, in known sin, can obtain credentials, a legitimacy pursuit and acquisition will be easy to obtain.
And they won’t have to use a threatening lawsuit.
All they have to say is that…..
“You let O.C. Allen in? We know you will do the same for us.”
How do you think this will end?
John 15:1a and verse 6 says….
“I am the true Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away;…If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.”
Jesus said in Matthew 7:17-20…
“Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”
Regardless, if you are a non producing dead branch or a bad tree, the fate is the same.
You will burn in fire.
In both cases, the Father cuts off the branch or He cuts down the tree.
The fate is the same.
Into the fire you go to burn.
Sadly, this will not be incentive enough to change a person’s wicked ways.
Proverbs 14:12 and 16:25 says
“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.”
After viewing the Joint College’s 2013 FB site, several comments were made about the quest for truth and the “rebuttal” sent by Bishop Ellis.
Which you can read here…..
What gets me is that many of the comments fail to underscore any Biblical foundation as to why they agreed with the Bishop’s statement. And it is alarming because when you have people following you, the first thing that you have to do is discern the rightly divided Word of God, and discern whether or not the leader submits to Christ’s truth in the Word, Christ’s rule and Christ’s authority.
Sadly one person that agreed with Bishop Ellis’s statement is a pastor of a church called “Pursuit Of Truth.”
When you have people calling you “Excellency,” there is a problem.
And yes, it is worship. Sadly, people still worship everything and everybody else but God.
Psalm 8:1 says…
“O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth.”
It underscores the fact that Jeremiah 17:5-10 is in play here when people agree with the ill-fated position of admitting homosexuals into the ranks of the Joint College. I doubt if there is going to be a course change. Anything is possible though, because the Lord loves people and He wants His people to repent and remember Him as the only One that will bring legitimacy, provided, they turn from their wicked ways.
Just reading verse 5…
“Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord.”
According to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of OT Words, the word “curse” in his commentary said, “God alone truly “curses.” It is a revelation of His justice, in support of His claim to absolute obedience. Men may claim God’s “curses” by committing their grievances to God and trusting in His righteous judgment (cf. Psalm 109:26-31).”
Why is this reference so important?
Because anytime you trust in a man to bring you legitimacy, you distrust God.
When you have a group of people “agreeing” with sin, there is the problem.
It’s an “eyes wide shut” moment.
Jesus said, “…Seeing they may see and not perceive…”
Like a fish looking at the worm, not seeing the hook. Bait is designed to catch fish for dinner, and these people do not realize that they are on the menu.
The question again is simple.
What’s at stake here?
If a course change never happens, we are witnessing another institution fall to the demonic agenda of LGBT. It is their desire to destabilize and delegitimize Christ and His true church.
For me and others that follow the Word of God, this is an easy one.
The rebuke is issued.
I condemn and vehemently rebuke those that exalt man above Jesus. I condemn and vehemently rebuke all who claim to be in Christ, yet openly practice the sin of homosexuality or any Secret Sexual Sins.
Many would like for those that say something to go away and just pray for them. Believe me, since coming out of the sins of sexual immorality myself (watching porn and masturbation), it’s been my prayer from jump street. But every so often, we read about more perverseness and silliness. How church leaders continue to openly violate the Word of God and live in deep hypocrisy.
The worse kind of preacher is a hypocritical preacher. Especially when they planned it all along. In that case, it’s not hypocritical. It’s plain deception with apostasy written on the wall.
Many will say, we should just walk in love about it and let Jesus handle it.
Another tactic to silence the truth.
It’s like knowing that the bomb is coming and we let it go when we could have done something.
Romans 13:12-14 tells us that “The night is far spent, the day is at hand…”
More foolishness is coming and the Joint College is just a start of things to come.
The strings of the LGBT puppet masters are firmly in place in the leadership of the Joint College, unless they revoke the credentials issued to O.C. Allen, and reinstate their unequivocal support and pledge their full unadulterated compliance to the Joint College’s statement against allowing people captured by the sin of homosexuality to seek any office therein.
Until then, no longer legitimate and without credibility, the Joint College is another casualty of war, and this time, it’s a very big prize in the trophy case of church institutions captured by the devil.
And that, without any fight. The Joint College just took a dive.
You wonder if a “Gamaliel” would rise up and speak some sense into the minds of these people. Someone that has a little wisdom to offer a Biblical course change before it is too late.
Alas. More ministers, their ministries, churches, and whatever denominations that are left, may capsize when the storm of sinful pressure from the now spiritually acceptable church leaders of the brand name LGBT puppet masters.
My only question is that since O. C. Allen is already an ordained bishop, why don’t he make up his own insignia and start his own sin-filled denomination? Or, was it his intention all along to do it and he needed some form of legitimacy so that when he is ready, he will make his move. Just imagine a whole denomination of homosexual churches under his leadership?
Could this be part of the sexual immorality that may swallow the deceived, the very elect?
The infiltration by way of compromise is over.
Perhaps a new tactic will emerge. Only a matter of time. It may be time for a massive frontal assault and those that are not prepared to fight may not make it.
But the Bible says…
“Upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
As the late John Osteen once said…
“The devil’s best is not enough!”
I might add….Because we serve a God that is more than enough!
Could it be that God is using a chicken to teach man, in particular, perverted, unregenerate man the gospel? The gospel of creation?
For those of you that know already, the leadership of Chick Fil A took and made a vocal stand against same sex marriage.
In the blink of an eye, LGBTQ sent messages out that they would “boycott” (a well documented Civil Rights tactic) the establishment in an failed attempt to send fear in the world.
In particular to Christians.
Quite the contrary is occurring.
McDonalds and KFC is joining Chick Fil A in supporting their stand against same sex marriage. Usually, the opposite occurs. Most establishments would have capitulated under the political incorrectness stress and pressure of LGBTQ.
But we are seeing the trend reverse.
First, I believe it’s because these establishments are reading the numbers that LGBTQ is a very small minority with a very big lying demonic spirit, mouthing off lies and deception to make it seem as if they are bigger than they are. And that they make it seem like they have teeth, every time they act like they want to bite.
It’s hard to bite when all you have is gums.
But as a roaring lion, the devil’s teeth was pulled at Calvary and Jesus triumphed over death and darkness under the earth for three days and three nights, was raised from the dead, and Jesus is seated at the right hand of the throne of His Majesty in heaven.
Second, the food establishment knows that even if there were to be a boycott by LGBTQ, their money wouldn’t be missed. For Chick Fil A and other supporting establishments, it’s not a calculated risk. And these supporting establishments could and should anticipate residual revenue should Chick Fil A be overwhelmed with people coming on August 1.
And a word for the Mayor of Chicago, you are going to see revenue and residual revenue.
And just know that it came from God.
Will you repent and turn your life over to Christ as a result? Only God knows.
It is a bold statement to let LGBTQ know that it is not running the show like they used to and they know it.
Like toddlers and adolescents, standby for their immature temper tantrums.
As Paul said in Romans 5:20b-21,
“But where sin abounded, grace does much more abound, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Isn’t it a shame that LGBTQ hijacked Civil Rights from the African Americans? And sadly, it’s reprehensible that high ranking Civil Rights Leaders that marched in these non violent protests in the past have hopped in bed with LGBTQ.
But thank God that there are independent thinking African American pastors that see the lie for what it is and we refuse to toe their perverted line to swallow the poisonous lies of sin based on deception. Give us the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ over sexual perversion any day.
We must also understand that it’s not just about the sin of homosexuality.
It’s sexual perversion of any kind. Adultery, fornication, bisexuality, bestiality, porn, self gratification, commonly called masturbation.
And if you are a pastor that has yet to speak against sexual immorality, it is clear that you need to get off the sidelines and speak against the sexual sins of our times.
Provided that you are not a hypocrite in the pulpit.
Your silence is deafening.
In fact, if you remain silent, your silence may be deemed by others as permission to engage in Secret Sexual Sins.
You are to speak up against all sin, including the sin of homosexuality. If not, you are party with the LGBTQ agenda and James 4:4 is the authority Scripture that determines your traitor/enemy of God status.
Stop hiding, avoiding the issue, and come out, and speak boldly against the sinful spirit of homosexuality, and all sexual immorality of our times.
Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:4
“In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of the that believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of the glory of Christ, Who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
The devil has blinded them to accept these lies and deceptions.
Sin and race are two different issues.
To mingle the two is deception.
In addition to boycotting, they allegedly sent the word to same sex partners to show up and also perform modest lewd acts in front of some of these establishments in retaliation.
We are now seeing that as a result of Mike Huckabee’s FB page to support Chick Fil A on Wednesday, August 1, 2012, is one of many solutions to counter the LGBTQ agenda.
Believers in Christ, all across the United States are leading the effort to support our fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord.
First, we must understand that God “desires all men to saved and come to the knowledge of the truth,” according to 1 Timothy 2:4.
We know that not everyone that serve behind the counters of Chick Fil A and those around that may see a surge of believers come to some of these places that they may not know the Lord. That’s where the church, with it’s bold witness must uphold the standards of the Word of God and share the gospel when the opportunity arises. We must give an answer of the reason of the hope that abides in us.
Actually, Peter, by the Holy Spirit said it like this.
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed. For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.”
Gleaning from portions of Romans 12, Paul reminds us….
“Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good…Bless those that persecute you; bless and do not curse…Do not be wise in you own opinion….Repay no one evil for evil…Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.” says the Lord. Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Go and have a good time before the Lord.
The world might be seeing a great display of camaraderie. While the numbers are encouraging, what’s important is we provide the world the kind of representation that glorifies the Lord.
The devil is prepared to incite, bait, and resort to things to lure us to drop our guard. But we need not fear what they will do. Perhaps, there may not even be an incident, which would be good because a peaceful assembly to enjoy some good chicken would be a great thing.
Remember, the devil is a liar. And his children may not like the truth but this is what the church is supposed to be and do.
We are “the pillar and ground of the truth.”
We are to “speak the truth in love.”
We are to “walk in truth.”
One more thing.
Isn’t it powerful that when God created the animals on the earth that they were made male and female, and He commanded them to be fruitful and multiply? Isn’t it powerful that when Adam searched for someone compatible that none was found? But Adam took note that the animals paired off, male and female, and they had each other. But Adam was all alone. That is he had no one of his kind to share life with.
Remember, God is Spirit according to John 4:24.
Man was created in the image of God, spirit and soul, both of which are eternal, and he was placed in a physical container. And the Lord God said, “It is not good for Adam to be alone.”
It is evident that Adam wanted a female and the Lord provided a woman. Suitable for his needs. Man wasn’t created for woman, woman was created for man. God was careful enough to make someone completely opposite, yet, compatible. There was no confusion about what Adam needed. Suddenly, Adam was put to sleep and when He woke up, God brought a beautiful woman to him.
Bone of my bone flesh of my flesh.
She shall be called Woman…named Eve….mother of all living.
The animals serve as a reminder that God knew exactly what He was doing.
The chicken, on creative instinct, knew to find opposites of each other to have more chicken. If God created male chicken and male chicken, there would be no chicken and Chick Fil A, and all other chicken establishments would not be in business. Perhaps breakfast, lunch, and dinner would be chicken-less had God decided to create male and male chicken.
No eggs for breakfast or brunch. No chicken fillet sandwiches. No grilled chicken. No gospel bird. No chicken parm. No potato salad. You gotta have eggs for potato salad.
Two male chickens after the fall of Adam, would have been the only chicken sandwich in history. And we could only imagine what chicken taste like.
Hence, the same principle applies if God created only two males or two females.
Perhaps God is speaking through chicken that animals have more sense than perverted humans.
I intend to be at one of the Chick Fil A establishments. I’ve asked members of Prevailing Word to join me, my wife and daughter. We intend to stand and be a witness. For what the Lord Jesus did for us over 2000 years ago, it’s the least we could do.
I encourage you to be salt and light for the Lord Jesus.
GCMWatch put the Word out about gays in gospel. It is a stunning and sobering reminder that music in the church is not as holy as one would think.
It’s horrific to know that sin could sound heavenly when coming from the belly of a person immersed in hellish sin.
Is your pastor permitting practicing homosexuals to play keyboard and organ in your church? Is there adultery and fornication going on in the choir? Are your musicians promiscuous? Are they watching porn and gratifying themselves?
Such was the case early in my teen years as a born again believer that this was happening in several Baptist churches in Brooklyn.
Case in point.
Over three decades ago, I witnessed something that I had no knowledge about.
Gays in the church.
While I knew that something wasn’t right, I wasn’t really privy to the horrendous activity that gays, excuse me, homosexuals, were doing. Even though it seemed innocent, the Bible is clear about the fact that homosexuals (catamites), sodomites, adulterers, fornicators will not inherit the kingdom of God (see 1 Corinthians 6:9-10).
As a reminder, even, thieves, covetous, drunkards (defined as “tipsy”), revilers, (defined as “foul mouth abusers”), extortioners (defined as “people that prey upon others with violence”).
They will not inherit the kingdom of God.
If you think they are, you got another thought coming.
John said it like this in 1 John 3:7-8,
“Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning.”
Then verse 10 says,
“In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God…”
So if you practice what Paul listed, you stand no chance of inheriting the kingdom of God.
You only knew that something was going on because of the way that males act or reveal the sinful nature of their father, the devil.
It’s not like this with all homosexuals because there are masculine males that would act masculine and the only way that you would be able to tell is when you are with them in the places where homosexuals congregate.
Any way, in church, we had homosexuals that played keyboard and organ. That’s right. In my first home church over 30 years ago in Zion Baptist Church in Brooklyn, NY. As a just recently saved teenager in the 70’s, I was propositioned by one of these homosexual musicians on two known occasions. He died a few years later, presumably of HIV/AIDS.
Then we heard of one particular church in Brooklyn that catered to homosexuals in the choir. This wasn’t isolated. It appears that this was almost every where.
In the many churches across all denominations, it just wasn’t homosexuality. Choir masters would be sleeping with choir members. Pastors would be fornicating or committing adultery with church secretaries. Deacons would have harems. Junior deacons from two local churches would be fornicating. Youth ministers would be sleeping with teen girls and molesting young boys. Music Ministers would be promiscuous, be involved in porn, and self gratification, commonly called masturbation, as well as fornicating, adulterating, and be bisexual in some cases. Praise and worship singers would swap husbands and wives, or be involved in orgies.
Perversion knew no limits.
And they would play, preach, and sing in church like the anointing of God never left them at all.
Yes, even in the 70’s and early 80’s, sexual immorality was rampant.
Here we are in the 21st Century, and it is MOAB. The Mother Of All Battles.
Sadly, we have grown accustomed to having music and sin in the church.
The two seemed inseparable. Pastors seemed not to get along without good music and good singing. The risk to do without it would cause attendance to suffer and offerings to decrease.
But what about God?
The church doesn’t deserve the presence of God today except in places where holiness is lived. The presence of God is something to be desired. We have reached the dry places and a famine of God’s presence is evident. We are desperately looking for ways to produce a worldly sound to attract the wrong crowd.
Homosexuals, adulterers, adulteress, fornicators, bisexuals and all sorts of lewd people feel safe and comfortable in church. The laws of the land have changed and they are challenging the church. So much so that LGBT is finding deceptive ways to set up house in churches that stand against the sin of homosexuality.
The church that stands will see the mighty hand of the Lord overturn their wickedness. The prophets of Baal in this day is in for a big surprise.
The sexually immoral are so comfortable that adulterers, fornicators, homosexuals, and lesbians kiss and hold hands during services, and they lift up unholy hands before the presence of the Lord without any conviction. They come to church intending to sin after service is over. They come in after they sin and the leave with every intention to commit lewdness.
Anytime a carnal saint feels safe to walk into the house of the Lord after a “night on the town,” it is clear that the mercy of God is in operation because when God’s presence is truly in the house, the stench of dead bodies would be unbearable.
If you are a pastor, it is time to make a stand and clear the deck.
1. If you have known sin in your life, it’s time to repent the right way. You cannot attack sin in the house of God if you are in sin yourself. Take time away if necessary to get it together. If you are clean, put your neck on the line and tell the congregation that you will resign if you fall.
2. Any currently serving in the music department must be confronted and challenged.
Pastor, if you permit their sin in the house, you are a co-conspirator. You are no different than Eli who never disciplined (killed) his sons for lewdness. The sons of Eli were also called sons of Belial (compare with 2 Corinthians 6:14-18). The name Hophni in the Hebrew root means “pugilist.” And Phinehas is defined a “mouth of a serpent.” It is clear that Hophni was a rapist and Phinehas was a smooth talking adulterer. His wife gave birth to Ichabod.
Pastors that fail to rein in the sexual immorality in the house of the Lord, stand to be disciplined by the Lord. The Lord might kill you with your overweight with sins self.
If they aren’t telling the truth, and they are lying, they may be in for an Ananias and Sapphira moment. No one gets away with lying to the Holy Spirit. If you think you can get away with lying to the Holy Spirit, would you like to be the first to try?
The intent is not to embarrass them but to offer the grace of God. The job of the pastor is to ensure that the proper respect for the house of God is in place. Second, the pastor must not respect the gift over God. Thirdly, the pastor must make sure that the house remain clean for the presence of the Lord. Otherwise, it’s not church. It’s a bar.
Should they refuse to Come Clean, you must compel them to quit and step down. Cut them before God either cuts you or removes them Himself. The latter is preferred because God always looks to extend mercy where a person needs it the most. God gets no glory by destruction. He gets glory when they repent and turn from their wicked ways.
Jeremiah chapter 7 reveals the current condition of the church.
THE MESSAGE BIBLE
The Nation That Wouldn’t Obey God
The Message from GOD to Jeremiah: “Stand in the gate of GOD’s Temple and preach this Message.
” Say, ‘Listen, all you people of Judah who come through these gates to worship GOD.GOD- of- the- Angel- Armies, Israel’s God, has this to say to you:
“‘ Clean up your act– the way you live, the things you do– so I can make my home with you in this place. Don’t for a minute believe the lies being spoken here–” This is GOD’s Temple, GOD’s Temple, GOD’s Temple!
Only if you clean up your act (the way you live, the things you do), only if you do a total spring cleaning on the way you live and treat your neighbors, only if you quit exploiting the street people and orphans and widows, no longer taking advantage of innocent people on this very site and no longer destroying your souls by using this Temple as a front for other gods– only then will I move into your neighborhood.
Only then will this country I gave your ancestors be my permanent home, my Temple.” ‘Get smart! Your leaders are handing you a pack of lies, and you’re swallowing them! Use your heads! Do you think you can rob and murder, have sex with the neighborhood wives, tell lies nonstop, worship the local gods, and buy every novel religious commodity on the market — and then march into this Temple, set apart for my worship, and say, “We’re safe!” thinking that the place itself gives you a license to go on with all this outrageous sacrilege?
A cave full of criminals! Do you think you can turn this Temple, set apart for my worship, into something like that? Well, think again. I’ve got eyes in my head. I can see what’s going on.’ “GOD’s Decree! ‘Take a trip down to the place that was once in Shiloh, where I met my people in the early days. Take a look at those ruins, what I did to it because of the evil ways of my people Israel.”
‘So now, because of the way you have lived and failed to listen, even though time and again I took you aside and talked seriously with you, and because you refused to change when I called you to repent, I’m going to do to this Temple, set aside for my worship, this place you think is going to keep you safe no matter what, this place I gave as a gift to your ancestors and you, the same as I did to Shiloh.
And as for you, I’m going to get rid of you, the same as I got rid of those old relatives of yours around Shiloh, your fellow Israelites in that former kingdom to the north. ‘ ” And you, Jeremiah, don’t waste your time praying for this people. Don’t offer to make petitions or intercessions. Don’t bother me with them. I’m not listening. Can’t you see what they’re doing in all the villages of Judah and in the Jerusalem streets?
Why, they’ve got the children gathering wood while the fathers build fires and the mothers make bread to be offered to’ the Queen of Heaven ‘! And as if that weren’t bad enough, they go around pouring out libations to any other gods they come across, just to hurt me.
“But is it me they’re hurting?” GOD’s Decree! “Aren’t they just hurting themselves? Exposing themselves shamefully? Making themselves ridiculous?”
Here’s what the Master GOD has to say:’ My white- hot anger is about to descend on this country and everything in it– people and animals, trees in the field and vegetables in the garden– a raging wildfire that no one can put out. ‘”The Message from GOD- of- the- Angel- Armies, Israel’s God:’ Go ahead! Put your burnt offerings with all your other sacrificial offerings and make a good meal for yourselves.
I sure don’t want them! When I delivered your ancestors out of Egypt, I never said anything to them about wanting burnt offerings and sacrifices as such. But I did say this, commanded this:” Obey me. Do what I say and I will be your God and you will be my people. Live the way I tell you. Do what I command so that your lives will go well. “
‘But do you think they listened? Not a word of it. They did just what they wanted to do, indulged any and every evil whim and got worse day by day. From the time your ancestors left the land of Egypt until now, I’ve supplied a steady stream of my servants the prophets, but do you think the people listened? Not once.
Stubborn as mules and worse than their ancestors!’ “Tell them all this, but don’t expect them to listen. Call out to them, but don’t expect an answer. Tell them, ‘You are the nation that wouldn’t obey GOD, that refused all discipline. Truth has disappeared. There’s not a trace of it left in your mouths.”
‘So shave your heads. Go bald to the hills and lament, For GOD has rejected and left this generation that has made him so angry. ‘”The people of Judah have lived evil lives while I’ve stood by and watched.” GOD’s Decree. “In deliberate insult to me, they’ve set up their obscene god- images in the very Temple that was built to honor me.
They’ve constructed Topheth altars for burning babies in prominent places all through the valley of Ben- hinnom, altars for burning their sons and daughters alive in the fire– a shocking perversion of all that I am and all I command.” But soon, very soon “– GOD’s Decree!–” the names Topheth and Ben- hinnom will no longer be used. They’ll call the place what it is: Murder Meadow.
Corpses will be stacked up in Topheth because there’s no room left to bury them! Corpses abandoned in the open air, fed on by crows and coyotes, who have the run of the place. And I’ll empty both smiles and laughter from the villages of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem. No wedding songs, no holiday sounds.

I just had to put this out.
Your response warranted me to rebut your statement that…
“One problem with the Bible is that it can be used to argue anything, and you certainly know the verses with which to insulate your ignorance…”
The source of your words is pricked and the Holy Spirit will deal with the source.
Rule number one with the Bible. God is the Lord, and He is the Author of it’s content, and there is nothing that you can really do about it.
Rule number two. In case you do not understand, please refer to rule number one.
It is amazing that (you) and LGBT people have a problem with Leviticus 18:22.
Be a little real and say exactly what you mean.
I have a problem with God telling me that acting out sexually with the same sex is sin.
A little honesty goes a long way.
Of course everyone will blame the preacher for pulling out specific Scriptures to use the Scriptures to contextually (harmoniously) preach what sin is.
Besides, I didn’t make up anything about the sin of homosexuality. I didn’t take Scripture to make the Bible say something that didn’t make sense. I took the Bible and used the verses of Scripture to explain to you and everyone else what God is against. He inspired men to write what He said and to preach His Word and all I did was agree with what God said in the Bible.
I am guilty of agreeing with God and His position against homosexuality!!!
I won’t placate or pacify.
I took the Scriptures, placed it in a homily (study out the word homiletics) and expounded on LGBT’s position with contrasting positions, and stated Scriptures as to why LGBT’s position conflicts with God and His Word.
People in sin do not like it!
If what I was saying didn’t affect people, then I didn’t do my job. Obviously, what God gave me affected you enough to the point where a “response” towards me was warranted.
That’s called “conviction.”
Truth will convict and truth will hurt.
It’s a good thing.
The Holy Spirit was sent into the earth to “Convince people of their sins.”
Evidently, the Holy Spirit convinced you and your resistance to the Word of God warranted that you attack me. That comes with the territory. That’s what happens when truth and light comes.
We must also remember that the Holy Spirit leads and guides people to properly use the Scriptures to preach against sin but also to preach the way out of sin. Granted, there are many unqualified people that abuse the preaching and teaching of the Bible.
Many mislead and live questionable, hypocritical lives.
Just because people fail, it doesn’t mean that the Word of God has failed.
But the Bible says,
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God…”
God inspires or breathes life into the vessel that He has called and authorized to share His Word and the Word of God is already full of the life of God. It is up to people to accept or reject. Even Jesus tells us that if people do not receive, move on. Do not belay the point. Just move to the next person. Perhaps others will believe.
And God is long-suffering towards us and sends another vessel to preach to people that rejected Him the first time. Just to see if they would change their minds.
That’s God’s everlasting love beyond measure.
Is it because LGBT does not trust the Bible when God’s Son said “For God so loved the world…”
Is it because LGBT thinks that God is so full of hate that He is incapable of loving me?
God loves you more than you will ever know.
I can’t accept what Christians say that God loves me because they hate me, therefore, God hates me.
Does that make any sense?
Christians hating homosexuals because God hates homosexuals, yet in the Bible, John 3:16 says “God so loved the world…”
What happens when you do not listen? Something happens. Right?
When people do not listen to God when God said that “You shall not lie with men as you lie with women…” what do you expect to happen?
What happens when you do something that is against the instructions?
But have you ever noticed that before the children of Israel moved into the land of Canaan that homosexuality and all sorts of sexual immorality was already among the nations. God was commanding the children of Israel not to take on the sinful habits of those nations.
What happens when you run a red light? What happens when you pour water on oil that is hot? What happens when you walk in a puddle of water with a downed electrical wire? It’s the same with sin. Something is going to happen when you abuse the “natural use.”
It’s called consequential judgment.
Just in case people do not want to listen to God’s Word……
Genital warts leads to cervical cancer. Genital warts is common among women that practice sex with other women. Oral sex leads to syphilis and gonorrhea, which leads to oral cancer; common among MSM. Anal and oral sex leads to increased risk of contracting HIV/AIDS.
Of course, there are many other sexually transmitted diseases but we all know that these are the diseases that are common when sex outside of marriage, bisexual, and homosexual sex takes place.
There’s no way around it. Even with condom use, the risk is reduced. Not eliminated.
When you hold a loaded weapon to your head, there is an increased risk of severe injury or death. The only safe weapon is when the weapon is in the safe and separated from the missiles. Weapon cleared, with no rounds in the chamber.
It would be a huge bonanza if LGBT could find Scripture in the Bible to say that God authorizes MSM. But there is not one Scripture in the Bible that gives homosexuals God’s approval.
Instead, LGBT finds prohibition after prohibition.
What LGBT is finding out is that there is no way to discredit God and the Bible. But they have repeatedly found unjustified reason to discredit preachers and believers that live according to the Word of God. They have learned that sin is not right and that sin is against the very creation of God.
Instead, LGBT is finding that people can come out of the lifestyle, get married, start and maintain a family in the God ordained roles of husband and wife, father and mother. Just as God designed it in Genesis 2:24.
Instead, we find God’s disapproval and His displeasure of the sin of homosexuality expressed with one word.
Instead, we find God’s displeasure expressed in His wrath in Genesis 19.
Instead, we find God’s displeasure expressed in consequential judgment in Romans 1 with STDs, including HIV/AIDS.
So be man or woman enough to just attack, blaspheme, and condemn God.
Just say what you feel.
Let me help you…..
I hate God when God tells me that same sex is sin.
I hate God when God tells me that it is unnatural for women to have sex with women.
I hate God when God tells me that I have to repent.
I hate Jesus for dying on the cross for me to set me free from all sin.
I love the devil.
I love sin.
I love homosexuality.
I will be a homosexual until the day I die!!!
Not even God can change my mind because this is the way I want to be and God cannot stop me!!!!
Be man or woman enough to point your anger and frustration at the Author of the Greatest Book. The number one bestselling Book in the world.
Stop hiding behind accusing the messenger of the Word of God and point your finger at God and the Bible. Preachers of righteousness are only repeating what God said in the Bible. We see what the Bible said and we repeated what God said.
It would be the greatest cross examination impeachment in the world if I came up with my own Bible and told you that homosexuality is sin. But all I did was read where it said that homosexuality is a sin and repeated what God said in His Word.
And to say that the sin of homosexuality is outdated is definitely error because why do people still contract STDs, including HIV/AIDS? If homosexuality is no longer a sin (according to you), don’t you think that the consequential judgment for homosexual sin should be lifted as well?
If murder were no longer against the law, why are murderers still in jail?
The same God that said, “You shall not murder.” Is the same God that said, “You shall not lie with men like you lie with woman…”
So, instead of calling me “…ignorant,” go ahead and say it.
God, you are ignorant. You are a Fool for not understanding what I want to do.
It would be a huge bonanza if God poured His wrath on the righteous. That God would destroy Christians that live according to the Bible. That God would destroy the Bible while He was at it.
That God would embrace homosexual sin. To hell with all Christians that accepted Jesus as Lord.
Go ahead. That’s what you really want to say.
Well just say it. What are you waiting for?
To hell with believers in Christ. To hell with Jesus Christ!!!
Jesus did go to hell. To pay for your punishment.
He died, went to hades, and was resurrected from the dead. God required that sinless blood be shed and that man be separated from the presence of the Lord. Jesus was sent by the Father to pay for our sins. His life for ours.
Sadly, this form of writing hurts me because it hurts the heart of the Father.
I know that by now, even you will not accept this form of writing but you know this is true.
You want to be able to sin at will without anyone, including God, getting in your way. That God would accept you while you continue in sin. That’s not what the Bible teaches. We must give up. We are commanded to turn away from sin and live a life of righteousness by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
From the time Adam and Eve betrayed God and fell into sin, such rejection of God and His truth has hurt Him. But as with God, He is justified when He must deal with the sin and betrayal.
True to His Word, Adam died. Eve was never heard of except that she was the one that was deceived and Adam listened to her deception and plunged all of man-kind towards the gateway of eternity.
But God still loved man and God demonstrated His love for man by sending His Son, the Lord Jesus to die and take away the sin of the whole world. That whoever believes in His shall not perish, but have everlasting life.
Go ahead and say it.
I hate God for loving me. I hate God for sending His Son Jesus to die for my sins.
Say what you feel and mean.
As I have said. The Bible was here before us and the Bible will be here after we are gone. Should the Lord Jesus tarry.
