The LGBTQ Insanity: Accept Or Reject (Part 3)

image.png

On this final part, the question remains.

What is the driving factor of the homosexual agenda?

Normalcy.

The right to do what they do without restraint, rejection, and to be militantly intolerant of those that refuse to accept such behavior as normal.

To normalize same sex unions was thought to be the one thing that would eliminate the existing prohibitions.

There’s still laws in the books of city and state government, including the UCMJ (Uniform Code Of Military Justice).

However, we see that since the hijacking of the 14th Amendment, a class of people was formed. This Amendment, in its initial groundbreaking form, had everything to do with giving Black people equal status as American citizens.

This sneaky maneuver proved to be the one thing needed to propel homosexuality as a normal behavior. For years, this sin was kept in the closet and now it’s out for all the world to see.

Proof that if you keep pushing for acceptance, over time, people will stop fighting and resistance to sin wanes.

But the one thing that didn’t happen is that it didn’t stop the sexually transmitted diseases from manifesting. It didn’t stop true believers from sounding the alarm that this behavior is sin.

But indoctrination continued.

Movies, main stream media, news outlets, books, television shows, church musicians and choir masters, pastors, preachers, and other places did the unthinkable.

Assist in making sin normal.

But again, the diseases associated with homosexuality didn’t stop.

It’s insanity.

Diseases is something that you run from not run towards.

Abnormal sexual behavior, which if not stopped, carries the potential to acquire STDs.

Sex between male and female outside of being married isn’t normal.

Sex between the same sex isn’t normal.

To impose these abnormalities as normal is imposing confusion.

But when the insatiable desire to fulfill the lusts of the flesh and mind comes, it’s certain that a measure of insanity sets in.

After the satisfaction is achieved, and word gets out that you’re a part of this world, acceptance is demanded.

No one wants to be rejected. It hurts.

But to what lengths a person is willing to go to get you to accept them?

It’s a no holds barred situation.

The argument will continue but in the end, it’s not normal.

To push people to accept the sin of homosexuality as normal opened up a can of worms.

Planned Parenthood fired Dr. Leana Wen as their president because, according to a story, she didn’t push transgender abortion.

Planned Parenthood hired a medical doctor to push transgender abortion?

I find it highly unlikely, but then again, it’s deeply concerning.

But as I’ve said in a separate blog that it’s insane to go through the process of surgical reassignment surgery, wait for a woman to die, transplant her uterus into a transgender female, that was once a male, and then abort a baby.

But even more troubling, is the fact that transgender woman that wants to be a man is entitled to abortions.

INSANE!!!

Again, the reasons behind firing Dr. Wen is highly unknown at this time and very speculative, but I do believe that according to the NY Times, Dr. Wen stated that abortion shouldn’t be a political issue, but a health care issue.

Which is a signal to politicians that Planned Parenthood is about abortion not about politics. And surely, that’s what Planned Parenthood didn’t support. Of course it’s political. How else are they financially supported?

And killing babies? Is this health care?

Killing a baby conceived out of wedlock, isn’t health care but death.

There were other philosophical differences, the Times reported but it’s clear that wickedness knows no bounds.

The wicked devices formed in the mind of man is becoming more insidious by the hour.

Sadly, hidden from our eyes are more insidious acts, waiting to be normalized.

Which only tells us one thing.

They will not stop until the whole world declares that that which is abnormal is normal.

Insane.

Pastors/Boys, HIV/AIDS & Cancers

This is a subject probably least discussed but in the midst of the greatest pandemic in history, we see that there is a considerable risk of acquiring full blown AIDS during MSM (Men having sex with men.)

The government and the public has put out many ads about getting tested and the amount of people infected with this disease, as with other sexually transmitted diseases goes underreported.

The fear of discovery and the treatments that men and women face is embarrassing to them but that’s the price of shame when sexual immorality is committed. That’s the down side in the natural, but this “shame” could be avoided if a person refrains from committing any sexual sins, including the vile sin of homosexuality.

For the last few years and during the Obama administration, there has been a campaign to normalize homosexuality. Anything with a sexually transmitted disease is not normal. Men having sex with men and women having sex with women is not normal. And everyone knows it.

To legalize it with “marriage,” and discrimination legislation, homosexuals are hoping that if the general population would accept them as normal, then everything would be fine.

But the failure of this agenda of normalizing homosexuality, in all honesty, hasn’t dissuaded the diseases from manifesting. There is a price to be paid when people engage in risky behavior and sadly, millions, if not billions have suffered for it.

According to one particular sight, these are the “types of cancer that are known to be associated with HIV/AIDS include the following:

Kaposi’s sarcoma
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
Hodgkin’s disease
Cervical cancer
Anal squamous cell carcinoma
Primary CNS lymphoma”

Men having sex with men carries a considerable risk.

These are just a few of the risks associated that the media and other outlets will deliberately refuse to get over to the general public.

When you hear in the news of certain people, notable people who have been discovered or rumored to have had sex with boys, and they’ve died of cancer, one can’t help but connect the dots. And depending upon the person that may have acquired cancer, it may not be the case.

Why?

Because we will never know until afterwards.

Then why write this blog?

The answer is very simple. It’s now common determination that same sex sins reveal a considerable risk of acquiring HIV/AIDS and when a person receives cancer, it is determined by the medical field that that person has full blown AIDS.

If a person never had sex with another person of the same sex, then this blog is a mute point. When there is even the hint or allegation of men having sex with men, and cancer shows up, the preponderance suggests that homosexuality may be at the root.

That’s why not all cases are homosexual cases.

But when it comes to accusations, rumors, preponderance of evidence, and other substantiated and unsubstantiated information, when you see that a person involved, whether alleged or not, in homosexuality, we can’t close our eyes to the trail of dots that lead to a common conclusion.

For instance, the death of Zachary Tims.

NYPD found a “white powdery substance” in the hotel room where his body was found. The mother of Tims had the medical examiner’s report sealed until a judge ordered the unsealing of the cause of death almost a year later.

The emotional heat of protecting her son from the stigmatization of being a pastor on drugs was too much. Especially when you are a well known pastor.

It was a common conclusion that many have known all along that Zachary Tims never recovered from his past. The combination of sexual immorality, alcohol, and drugs will always be prevalent.

So, in the heat of any discovery, we want to cover up as much as possible, a person’s past so as not to taint a person’s vision of what prominent people appear to be when the “light’s, camera, and action” is on.

Sometimes we deceive ourselves because we just can’t believe that such a death happened in such a way. We want, so bad, to believe the best of others, which is what love demands. But love, in that same chapter (1st Corinthians 13) “does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth.”

While love covers a multitude of sins, love still “does not rejoice in iniquity…”

That’s the Biblical balance that few believers and pastors have a problem with balancing.

I do not believe that we should bring harm or disgrace to those caught in the trap of sexual, drug, and alcohol, or money, and food addictions, but we must all learn to reach into the admonition of Paul with balance.

In the quest for pointing out the sins of other, we fail to use the full import of Matthew 7:1-5. Paul admonished that we must “Take heed lest we fall….” Too busy demonizing and not mindful of demons lurking in our own thought life.

To avoid one story, to cover up a story is deception. To “angelize” (made up word- not in Webster’s) people and pastors is a grave mistake.

Too often we try so hard to overwhelm our minds with what good people have done but leave out the tragedy of sin entering the life of people and leaders.

Hoping that the good that they’ve done would outweigh the bad that they’ve done.

Grace is about learning how not to be so overbearing or extreme about either side.

For anyone that is a pastor, it gives anyone with common sense, pause to reflect circumspectly, about how we are living our lives before the Lord.

I said all that to say that when a person dies of cancer, and it is unrelated to homosexuality, that is one thing.

The other thing is that the evidence is clear that anyone that is known to practice this transgression of homosexuality, will eventually experience its tragedy of dying a horrible unnecessary death.

Death by cancer resulting from homosexual relations is avoidable.

But worse than that is the fact that unless there is genuine repentance, and faith towards God, appropriating the blood of Jesus, the Bible tells us that “The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

That’s why when not enough information is forthcoming, many people will declare that it’s none of our business. When there is speculation, many people will say that it is none of our business.

And that’s true to an extent.

But when the dots become big and the evidence is overwhelmingly forthcoming and apparent to ignore, do we continue the charade, or do we COME CLEAN?

Church Of Scotland OK’s Homosexual Ministers To Do Weddings

th-12

This is nothing new.

It is a continued trend of defiance against God and His Holy Word by people that claim to be ministers.

Rest assured. They are not ministers of Jesus Christ. They are not even followers of Christ.

Who are they?

Sinning rebels bent on loving and practicing the vile sin of homosexuality and using that which is sacred to legitimize homosexuals.

Lipstick on a pig still makes it a pig.

Homosexuals performing homosexual marriages still makes them practitioners of the vile sin of homosexuality.

The blatant disregard of the sacredness of marriage between one man and one woman is a pandemic.

All around the world, people are abandoning God. People that claim to know God were masquerading all that time. They weren’t serious about God. They were struggling with the lusts of their flesh and mind. Justifying their sin. They have given themselves over to their lusts to be under its control.

To them, if they were in Christ, they have self determined that it is easier to give in to their sin(s) than to fight each urge and impulse in prayer and fasting, carefully obeying the Holy Spirit to take that way of escape so they may be able to bear the temptation.

The pleasures of this life overwhelmed them.

I believe that the media has a lot to do with feeding their desires of the flesh and mind.

Consumed with these fleshly desires, they give themselves over to fulfill their vile appetite. Desiring to fulfill their sexual fantasy to secure a false sense of intimacy, they’ve shunned all discipline. They return to the house of worship. Not to worship God but to settle the account of remorse that doesn’t lead to repentance.

As I have said previously, God was not caught by surprise.

Wickedness is abounding, but as Paul said by the Holy Spirit in Romans 5:20b,

“…but where sin abounded, grace abounded much more.”

In other words, the pace of sin will never outpace grace.

Sin is powerless to overcome grace.

Even though man persists in spreading sin all over the world, the Lord promised in His Word that sin will never go beyond His grace. Which means that God’s delivering power will always be more than enough no matter how far and to what great lengths sinfully vile man takes it.

John Knox was a Scottish preacher in the Scotland during the Protestant Reformation in the 1500’s.

The queen of Scotland was quoted as saying that she feared the prayers of John Knox than all the armies.

Prayer from a man equivalent to Elijah would strike fear in anyone’s heart.

Needless to say, that on the isle of Scotland, much prayer is needed. Much prayer is needed every where because it’s not the fear of a praying man or woman alone. It is the God that responds to our inability to produce results praying that is to be feared above all else.

Until this kind of praying is done where God could do exceedingly abundantly above all that we could ask or think, according to the power that work within us, the vile sin of homosexuality will abound, but thank God “…where sin abounded, grace does much more abound.”

I’m Not Going To Hell Over Porn & Masturbation And Kirk Franklin

Unknown-11.jpeg

Kirk and Kanye will be doing a perverted “gospel” album.

When darkness has a hold on you, the effects are devastating. Looking at the face of Kirk, this Scripture comes to mind.

Proverbs 13:15b, “…the way of the transgressor is hard.”

Like I said, remember when Kirk talked to Oprah about his porn addiction?
 
Well, this is what’s behind all this stuff that he is doing now.
 
That is, porn and masturbation.
 
You can’t do one without the other.
However, just like the Word of God is a seed (see Luke 8:11), the word of satan acts in the same way.
Porn is deposited into the soul and its effects lasts until your last dying breath. It’s a constant battle to renounce, break, bind, cast down, throw down, block, and incarcerate every “objectivity of sexual positions” thoughts to the obedience of Christ.
Even if you stop watching porn, it’s in your soul until the mind is renewed by the Word of God. If it is in your mind and then the mind is renewed, 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 must be employed for the rest of your life.
 
Then with masturbation, you must dethrone and un-employ “muscle memory.” “Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.” As Jesus said, “If your right hand offend you, cut it off….if your right eye offend you, cut it off.”
According to Romans 6:12-23, you submit your members to righteousness leading unto holiness.
 
What are you willing to do to stop? Are you willing to shed blood to stop sin in your life?
Read Hebrews 12:4 “You have not resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.”
 
It’s called radical amputation.
 
What are you willing to do and how far are you willing to go to avoid going to hell?
Now do not get a knife. This is a metaphor. The power of radical amputation demands an extreme action to prevent yourself from sinning against God. I am not advocating suicide or making yourself physically. I am advocating implying extreme measures to keep yourself holy before God (see Matthew 16:24 and Colossians 3:5).
 

I was attacked a couple of days ago. As I was looking at the News on my iPhone and a porn site popped up twice. I was prepared to always look away and I immediately deleted the site. satan is not going to get me ever again to click a site to intentionally watch porn.

While there are many ways to head this attack off, I know that the Lord is strong and mighty in my life and that like Paul, “...nothing shall separate me from the love of God in Christ Jesus” (see Romans 8:31-39).

First, I love the Lord for delivering me and setting me free.
Second, I prove my love for Him by obeying His commands according to John 14:15 and 1 John 5:3.
Third, sexual immoral people will not inherit the kingdom of God and are cast into the lake which burns with fire and brimstone according to 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 and Revelation 21:8.
I am not going to burn in hell forever for one moment of pleasure.
To keep myself according to Psalm 119:9-11, Proverbs 4:23, 1 John 5:18 and I need the Holy Spirit to show me the way of escape according to 1 Corinthians 10:13. I need to count it all joy when I fall into many temptations according to James 1:2-4.
 
You cannot resist until you full submit to God.
 
Anyway, this is what’s driving Kirk to say and do what he is doing.

When you see the video, you will see no quoting of Scriptures by Kirk to support any of his statements. When you depart from God, the first thing that goes is the Word of God.

The Word in Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision the people perish.”

Another translation called the (NLT) says,  “When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild. But whoever obeys the law is joyful.”
Kirk’s rant about homosexuality and apologizing for what the church has said against homosexuality is a classic attempt to blame God about what they are going through. It appears that the authority of the Scriptures is shunned and discarded as a trivial Book.
Kirk has replaced the authority of the Scriptures with his own authority.
When you cast off the restraint of God’s Word, it’s because “Do as thou wilt” is the law of sin and death is in operation.
There is only one reason why Kirk is advocating for homosexuals.

You are either involved in the sin of homosexuality, or you are still in porn and masturbation, or both. It’s debatable, but one pastor told me that masturbation is the door to homosexuality.

Here is the reason.

Masturbation is you sexually doing you.
Also, when homosexuals engage in any sex act, masturbation or masturbating your other male partner is definitely homosexual activity. And homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God.
This became another incentive for me to cease and desist.
Now the Word acts as a restraint to keep one from perishing when acted upon in total obedience.
Kirk has cast off restrain according to Psalm 2 and if he doesn’t turn around, he will be numbered with the transgressors.

NY Governor, A Practicing Fornicator: Bans Conversion Therapy

Unknown-9.jpeg

A politician will do anything for votes, but when you find out that he lives with his girlfriend,” that is not his wife, it’s fornication.

John the Baptist spoke to Herod and Herod believed that John was a righteous man. Herod knew that John was right. Herod and his new wife, Herodias, were in an adulterous relationship. No doubt she was furious and steaming mad. She wanted to have John killed so Herod put John in prison (see Matthew 14:1-12).

I know there is price for speaking the Word of political power but we all know what this leads to. A suppression of the truth that endangers preachers everywhere. We know well the risks but we must remain obedience and avoid turning the other way. We must not refuse to point sin out to save our necks.

It’s not coincidence that sexual immorality is connected to this. So it is very easy for Cuomo to advocate for homosexuality when you are a practicing fornicator.

So there has been much said by misguided people that we can’t legislate morality.”

Well, look at the world “legislating immorality” at will, and daring anyone to preach righteousness.

Well, Mr. Cuomo, the Bible is clear. You are living in sin. Repent.

You are legislating immorality. Repent.

You are attempting to silence the voice of God and His Bible. Repent.

“For we are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the power of God unto salvation.” Romans 1:16

If people want to come out of sin, you can’t stop them. Millions have turned away from this perversion. And the LGBT camp themselves will tell you that no one is born as a homosexual. This lie has been refuted by lesbians and homosexuals.

Homosexuality is a sin of choice not a flaw of creation.

Sin came by the devil through man. Original sin did not come by or through God.

Therefore, even if you and other misguided politicians continue to legislate immorality, you can’t stop God and His Word. In fact, your own conscience is filled with the knowledge of God and it’s inescapable.

You are powerless to erase God from your mind. Even in hell, should you not repent, your very soul will remember God and His Word forever. Except it will be powerless to save, deliver, or set you free. The Lord is firmly Lord over all and there is nothing that you can do to stop it.

You can legislate to silence our voices but as long as we have breath, you and all others will hear the unadulterated Word of God. This Word will be heard in all eternity, forever, and there is nothing that you can do to stop it.

You know full well that God is against the sin of homosexuality, adultery, fornication, bisexuality, bestiality, pornography, and masturbation. Your own conscience has already judged you. And you are already condemned (see John 3:17-36) and the wrath of God abides on you and others.

The only thing that is left is the formality of the eternal sentence issued by the Judge of all the earth.

And that goes for you to, Mr. Christie.

50,000 New HIV Infections Per Year

190px-HIV-budding-Color.jpg

While climate change (ANOTHER BIG LIE) is making the news, the SCOTUS “law of the land” ruling on same sex marriage (ANOTHER BIG LIE-NO SUCH LAW) has contributed to the myth that homosexuality is no longer wrong, taboo, or, in their wildest imagination, a sin.

Get “married,” force the states to recognize same sex marriage, and it’s all nationally legal.

Just because it is legal, it doesn’t make it moral.

The Bible condemns the sin of homosexuality and ALL sexual immorality.

Well, it’s called “cause and affect.” 

When you do something, someone is affected.

According to the CDC, and sometimes you have to look at this and other concurring statistics, 50,000 new cases will manifest this year. They say that this has been consistent, year after year of these new cases.

Yet, because of the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the pride of life,” men and women will continue to be infected and afflicted with this and other STDs.

I’ve watched a commercial that stated this same fact. In this commercial, they also said that “there is no cure of HIV…”

If there is no cure, then why do people continue to be affected?

Lust. The desire to have that which is forbidden.

The desires of the flesh and the mind consistently demand to overrule God and His Word to have sex with the same sex. The contraction of this and other diseases is proof that God forbids this disgusting activity.

Here is the consequence of performing the sin of homosexuality.

You commit this sin and the consequence of this sin is STD’s. HIV is a sexually transmitted disease. Meaning that if you do have MSM, you can get the disease.

The number also suggests under reporting because there are many people that refuse to get tested because of the fear of discovering that they are HIV positive.

The opposite is true. If you do not have MSM, you cannot get infected unless it’s by intravenous drug use by contaminated needles, or blood transfusions, should there be a mistake in detection or by child birth.

And recently, we’ve heard that they are allowing HIV positive people to donate blood.

Now how silly is this?

As some of you are reading this article, you may have already been diagnosed and is going through some form of treatment. Some of you have full blown AIDS. Usually when an HIV person has been diagnosed, should they acquire some form of cancer, it is an indication that you have full blown AIDS.

And even with taking drugs to combat the affects of the disease, time is not on your side.

This should compel any individual to see the Lord to be saved but it doesn’t. Most people just accept the verdict and depart into hell to be tormented forever needlessly.

I realize that this is not the thing that most people facing death want to hear, but the Bible that prohibited this and other sexual immoral acts has the answer to get into God’s kingdom.

We will either meet the Lord as our Savior or we will meet Him as our Eternal Judge. Most people faced with death are very hesitant when it comes to ascertaining their salvation.

Many people with a terminal illness refuse to repent, hoping that their “good works” would suffice. Romans 3 tells us that “all have sinned….”

In that same chapter, Paul quoted from the OT by saying that “There is none that is good.”

Sinners want to change the rules of the Word of God so as to make God to be in the wrong and to make Him change.

It doesn’t work that way.

Many think and believe that the Lord is wrong and He has to get right.

God was not the One that sinned. He created us and anyone that makes anything has a right to make the rules. According to Galatians 3:22 “But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.”

God did not create or made men to be homosexuals. God did not create you in sin. When Adam sinned against God, everything that was contrary or opposed to God manifested. It wasn’t that way before or in the beginning according to Jesus in Matthew 19:4-5.

Psalm 100:3 says “The Lord, He is God. It is He that has made us and not we ourselves.”

And when He made us, He made us in His image.

God is holy. Not unholy. Not perverted. Not sinful.

When Adam sinned against God, man became perverted, unholy, and sinful. We are the ones that need the Savior. God doesn’t need to be saved.

God demonstrated His love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (see Romans 5:8).

But here is verse 9……“Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.”

That’s right……“saved from wrath through Him (Jesus).”

As long as you remain unrepentant, you are under the wrath of God.

John 3:36 says………“He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

As long as you do not trust in Jesus alone for salvation and departing forever the works of darkness and sin, “the wrath of God abides on you.”

To get the wrath of God off of you, you must repent or change your mind.

Then you must put your total faith on Jesus for salvation, never to return to sin against Him again.

You have but a short time in this life. You are like a flower, quickly fading, a wave tossed in the ocean, a vapor. Here today and gone tomorrow. You know that time is slipping away. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone but eternity is promised to everyone.

Where you choose to spend eternity is up to you. For the Lord gave you His Son so that you can “….flee from the wrath that is to come.”

This great love that the Lord is offering you is but for a limited time.

The coming of the Lord or your death…which ever comes first.

Hebrews 9:27 tells us…..“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, after that the judgment.”

Death is coming and there is nothing that any man can do about it, for the Scriptures tells us in Ecclesiastes 8:8 that “No one has power over the spirit to retain the spirit, and no one has power in the day of death. There is no release from that war, and wickedness will not deliver those who are given to it.”

So what’s it going to be?

Bypass a golden opportunity to escape the wrath to come or be plunged into hell?

Picking Apart LGBT’s Accusations Of True Believers “Picking And Choosing Scriptures.”

Unknown-22

Have you ever wondered why homosexuals accuse us of “Picking and Choosing Scripture?”

It’s because the sins of the homosexual are out in the open.

Jesus said for us to look for the signs of His imminent return in Luke 17:26-30 “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.

Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot:

They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.

Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”

Two major events combined as one event in the last days described as the days of the Son of Man.

Noah and the flood because of the perverse hearts of men. Lot and the raining of fire and brimstone because of the sin of homosexuality.

These are the days of the Son of Man, otherwise known as the year of our Lord. More on the days of the Son of Man in a moment.

They would love it if the spotlight were pointed elsewhere. But since their sin came out of the closet, they would rather for the spotlight of exposure to go away. So they begin to accuse the righteous of making a big deal about their vile, disgusting sin.

All we are doing is helping you to see that what you are doing is sin and there is freedom from that sin when you repent and believe the gospel to be born again. That light that was an enemy now becomes your friend to help you to see. We do not get pleasure in exposing the sin of the homosexual. We get pleasure out of the fact that when a homosexual turns from their sin and get saved, they are no longer on a path to hell but their names are written in the Lamb’s book of life by the shed blood of Jesus.

If you were in a burning building, would you want someone to save you before you perish?

The same principle applies right here.

Now the first rule of the Bible is clear.

The Bible works as a code book. Only those that seek the Lord, is born again, and seeks the truth will be allowed by the Holy Spirit to unlock truth.

Scripture Interprets Scripture.

The Bible is the inspired Word of God.

2 Timothy 3:15-16 says “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

According to Biblical Hermeneutics, “The part must be studied in light of the whole Scripture.”

An unwritten rule is clear. Never let sinners tell you what the Bible says. Sinners are incompetent and unqualified to handle the Scriptures because they do not know the Author of the Scriptures. 

So the practicing homosexual argue about true believers taking certain Scriptures (picking and choosing) and making a “big deal about it.”

Case in point. The sin of homosexuality.

Leviticus 18:22 says, You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”

For many of those that do not understand how Scripture works, Leviticus 18:22 is a moral law.

The OT law was divided into 3 sections.

1. Ceremonial Law.

2. Dietary Law.

3. Moral Law.

Ceremonial Law and Dietary Law was done away with at the crucifixion of Christ.

Matthew 5:17-19 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.” 

Jesus is the Only One that lived sinless according to the Law and when He died on the cross, He died as a Sacrifice for all of sinful man having fulfilled the Law, including never sinning any of it’s Moral Laws.

Jesus couldn’t take away the sin of the world if He sinned.

The resurrection of Jesus proved He fulfilled the Law.

Just look at your calendar. The year in particular. Something significant happened 2015 years ago.

The resurrection of Jesus. Since the resurrection of Jesus, these are known as the Year of Our Lord, which is the days of the Son of Man.

The OT was written in as much detail about what God required for the children of Israel because of these verses of Scripture.

Leviticus 18:24-30

“Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants.

You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled), lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you.

For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people.

‘Therefore you shall keep My ordinance, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves by them: I am the Lord your God.’”

Before the nation of Israel came into the land, there were other nations inhabiting the land.

The former tenants of that land did these and other abominations and the Lord did not want His people to have their evil, vile, wicked, and disgusting bad habits.

Is it wrong to murder?

Yes.

Where did the law about murder come from?

God.

So why do we have a problem with homosexuality?

Because homosexuals want to pick and choose what sins are not sins. Homosexuals want to declare righteousness as a sin and declare sin as righteousness (see Isaiah 5:20).

So practicing homosexuals are the ones that is really doing the “Picking and Choosing.”

What it has come to is that there is a deliberate attempt to control the language. If you control the language, you control the subject. If you put it out more often than the truth, the lie becomes the truth.

And when the truth comes, people will not know the difference. When the truth comes, there is a deliberate rejection of the truth as a lie and people remain blind.

For instance, because the sinner doesn’t know the Bible, the same Jesus that they claim to be loving, is only looked at as a Person who loves but when a Scripture comes to show that He will cast men and women into hell, they refute that by saying that “It’s not possible for a loving God to cast people into hell.”

Well here is what Jesus said.

Matthew 10:28 “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

In Ezekiel 18, the prophet said by the Holy Spirit…..“The soul that sins it shall die.”

Just like in the natural, when a person commits a crime, and is found guilty, they are sent to prison.

The principle works the same BUT in God, it’s eternal. It’s for keeps. There is no do over, second chances, purgatory, clemency, pardon, or parole.

“For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

So is Jesus lying? He is the same Jesus you claim that loves? Pick and Choose a way out of what He said.

Another good “Pick and Choose” moment is when they say that Jesus didn’t say anything about homosexuality.

John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God, the same was in the beginning with God..”

John 1:14 says “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

The Greek word for “Word” is Logos. So Jesus is the Word of God made flesh or Personified. Or Jesus is the Word in Person. So when the Word in Leviticus 18:22-30 was given, because Jesus and the Father are One, who do you think gave the Law that homosexuality was an abomination?

Then there is the Book of Romans chapter 1 where the Word about the sin of homosexuality was given.

In Galatians chapter 1 and 2 Corinthians 12, Paul said he received the Scriptures by revelation of Jesus Christ.

Again, remember that the Word was inspired or breathed upon by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus gave Paul the Word about homosexuality.

But I don’t expect you to believe this because the Scriptures are spiritually discerned or understood. You need to be born again to understand that Jesus said a lot about the sin of homosexuality. And Jesus didn’t change His mind because the Father didn’t change His mind.

Jesus further underscores that marriage is between one male and one female in Matthew 19:4-5, reiterating Genesis 2:24.

Jesus never changed His mind because the Father never changed His mind.

Malachi 3:6 says “I am the Lord, I change not.”

Psalm 119:89 says “Forever, O Lord Your Word is settled in heaven.”

Jesus said in Matthew 24:35 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”

God reiterated His stand against the vile sin of homosexuality by raining fire and brimstone on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis chapters 18 and 19.

The two most vilest sins of man is homosexuality and zoophilia, also known as bestiality or sex with animals.

God calls it an abomination or as the Hebrew definition states………DISGUSTING!!!!!

So to recap…..these are the days of Noah and Lot in the days of the Son of Man.

Homosexuality is at the forefront of this generation.

The Scriptures are clear about the fact that homosexuality is a sin that is vile, disgusting, and detestable.

That the only deliverance from this sin is the sinless blood of Jesus.

And that if anyone turns away from this deliverance, they can expect to be paid for their work of sin according to Romans 6:23.

Finally, it’s the homosexuals that “pick and choose” to declare righteousness is vile and sin is good.

The Real Truth & Intent Of Gay Marriage

We are at the Family Research Council Watchman On The Wall Conference. 

What is it that the elite proponents of the sin of homosexuality want?

Marriage Equality?

Looking at it from a Biblical perspective, we know that the elite will not be happy with just being able to be married.

As with all demonically inspired agendas, the question will always be “Where do we (homosexuality) go from here (marriage equality)?”

As we all know, civil unions opened the door. Accomplished, but they weren’t satisfied.

Creating “hate language” legislation was established. Accomplished, but they weren’t satisfied.

Getting state’s constitutional prohibition challenges annulled. Accomplished somewhat, but they weren’t satisfied.

Getting opponents of the sin of homosexuality silenced by court cases, loss of jobs due to “discrimination” policy, suing and shutting down business that hold on to true Biblical values without compromise. Accomplished, but they weren’t satisfied.

Why?

It’s not enough.

Where is the furthest that they can go?

To totally control society’s morals. To produce a government that will not allow anyone to question each and every decision about the sin of homosexuality. To engulf like fire every aspect of society. To incarcerate any voice that brings the convicting power of the Holy Spirit through the preaching of the Word of God. Not to infiltrate the church but to become the new church where immorality rules without opposition or question.

To use church property and rental facilities where churches hold exclusive services as a place where homosexuals can pervert the originally intended use. 

Many would like to believe that once SSM is accomplished, that would be the end of the line. Everyone walks away happy or disappointed. 

We all know that the push to conquer everything and everybody is the goal of the fight with the elite homosexuals in this nation. 

To force pastors and ministers to compromise the Bible and make them all perform the sacerdotal function of marriage under severe penalty. 

But this is not the end either.

In the book of Ephesians chapter 5, the marriage represents the relationship that Christ has with the church. To pervert marriage is to call Jesus a homosexual.

Far fetched?

We must understand that from the time that Lucifer was in heaven in opposition to God, this is what it’s been all about. 

Growing up as a young child the worst thing in the world is to be teased.

We are talking about the 60’s and 70’s.

For some of you, it could go back many more years.

The worst thing in the world for a straight man to be called is…………..I’m about to use a derogatory term, some of you will be offended and I know the comments are coming……..a faggot.

There is no other name that is worse to call a man than to be called a homo or a faggot.

Behind the scenes in the realm of the spirit, the devil is in opposition to God. The lie that has been perpetrated is that God created me this way. So since He created me this way, it makes God out to be a homosexual or a faggot Himself. Since we are created in His image. The Creator created an image.

What homosexuality and transgenderism is all about is “Identity” expressed in refusing to accept the image of God to be what He created you to be. Couple that with the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, and you have a serious identity issue. However, according to the Scriptures, lust transcends identity.

Homosexuality/transgenderism is the ultimate identity crisis and the final frontier of homosexuality. 

Why?

Lust is a matter of the heart. Identity or identifying yourself is out of what you declare yourself to be.

President Obama, in recent speeches regularly mentions transgenderism. Apparently acknowledging gender neutrality as an executive branch policy that is making its way around the country. 

As we all know, men don’t do women well and women don’t do men well. 

As long as you get to be what you envision yourself to be, you recreate yourself to be something that makes you happy. In complete defiance of God, you deliberately blame God for something that He is not responsible for.

For man sinned, not God (Romans 3:23, 5:12).

satan’s goal, all along, was to be God. When he was cast out of heaven (Revelation 13), he decided to make God out to be the bad Guy. Righteousness is wrong and wrong is righteous.

Since marriage came from God, if marriage could be perverted, annulling the Scriptures means that man could be without authority and moral standards, and live the way he wants to live with impunity. Therefore, he can create a picture of the kind of god he is while labeling God as a liar.

The discrediting of God is the bottom line. The discrediting of the Scriptures is the bottom line.

SSM is not going to stop if and when the SCOTUS rules either in favor or opposed.

The fire will burn until there is no more forest to burn.

So let us not get giddy should the SCOTUS rule conservatively. We should be smart enough to know that it’s never going to be finished until the Lord comes for His bride, the Great Tribulation of seven years is complete, the 1000 years of Christ’s earthly reign while satan falls in the bottomless pit, and the final disposition of satan in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone.

Lastly, four or more things to consider about the true intent of gay marriage.

1. Attack and destroy the image of God.

2. Blame God.

3. Destroy any Biblical standards.

4. Completely overrun the church, destroy pastoral or ministerial opposition, absorb compromised churches to toe the elite homosexual’s line, and establish immorality as the absolute rule of the entire world.

Supreme Court Oral Arguments…SSM: An Excellent Summation.

My FB friend Kenneth on FB messenger gave me the audio of the SCOTUS oral arguments of the case before the court called “Obergefell v. Hodges. 

It was riveting and interesting.

CERT. GRANTED 1/16/2015

While we will never be able to read into the minds of the justices, it is important to know what was argued and to what length, the justices may be leaning.

Again, it is foolish to read into what they are thinking because only the Lord knows what is in their minds.

I will say that the information gleaned from this is important because while you are hearing and reading what was said, you can see that they are well versed in the lower court’s precedent rulings that offer a glimpse into this subject. As you will see, they refuse to use the Bible as the basis of any argument. However, you will see that they are somewhat careful not to interfere with a minister’s right to refuse to perform the ceremony of matrimony to same sex couples.

One justice finally admitted that ministers declare homosexuality is a sin. 

I was shocked. 

It is clear that they also are careful about establishing a ruling for SSM that is constitutional and takes away any chance of a debate. To ask for the courts to rule as unelected officials and take away the States right, and the people’s right to deliberate is also a very interesting point brought up by the justices.

Also, it is clear that both attorney’s before the court were using children in the backdrop to bolster their arguments.

Sympathy towards a child’s plight that are adopted is another way to make the argument more palatable and sympathetic towards the position of practicing homosexuals having families.

God, in His sovereign wisdom, put the book of Proverbs in such a way that a male adolescent is to listen, obey, and honor father and mother, not father and father, or mother and mother. 

But we all know that it is about bringing legitimacy to the sin of homosexuality.

Marriage is not about bringing stability to homosexual relationships. It’s always been about establishing homosexuality as a legitimate and normal act. We all know that homosexuality is not normal. Just as adultery, fornication, porn, bisexuality, bestiality, and masturbation is not normal sex within the bonds of matrimony.

There is a vast difference between heterosexual sex and homosexual sex. The sex act, in and of itself is relatively the same, but to whom they are involved is definitely different.

Some will say that this is argumentative.

It’s not an argument because the Creator designed us to mate with the opposite sex within matrimony.

Arguing against the Scriptures is the one way where human reasoning falsely believes it can do.

According to one justice, marriage between one man and one woman was around since “millennial” and that SSM has only been around since 2001. No other society before 2000 has a track record of how SSM plays out over time. For the justices that are unelected officials, to rule and impose SSM on the entire country, is a valid point.

There are three things that MUST happen here in order for SSM proponents to be successful.

1. Don’t believe in the Creator.

2. Change the Creator, prohibit His believers, and alter, annul, and make void His Word.

3. Re-write what marriage is and include SSM.

On points 1 and 2, proponents of the sin of homosexuality almost were successful. Except that every now and then, believers in the Lord would crop up to make their voices heard. 

Another point is that I know that there are radical believers in the Lord, however, I believe that we can dialogue without compromise. We know that some practicing homosexuals will not budge from their position. However, they must know that we cannot budge from the Biblical position of marriage between one man and one woman.

Then, how could there be any dialogue if both sides refuse to give in?

The intent of any dialogue is to put forth an effort to understand each other. Homosexuals must know that we do love them because the Bible commands us to. God loves us but He knows how to love you and hate you at the same time.

Confused?

What God declares a sin is the issue.

To associate with that sin or any sin makes you one with what He hates. At the same time, the Lord loves us enough to tell us what He hates and how to be free of the sin that He hates. God never created us to sin. He created us to love Him. True believers in Jesus prove that we love Him when we keep His commandments. 

What commands?

The command to abstain from fleshly lusts that war against the soul. 

Jesus didn’t die for our sins so we could continue in sin. Jesus died to free us from sin so we don’t have to be under sin’s power. 

To walk in a house with muddy shoes is insulting. To walk in His presence with sin is insulting to Him. 

However, John 3:16 is there for a reason. God loved us enough to send His Son to die for our sins so that we could be free.

There is no freedom in sin, even when you are free to do anything you want. Even with doing anything you want, there still must be accountability (see Romans 14:11-12).

So while we are adamant about not compromising God’s Word, we are aware that, based on the arguments from practicing homosexuals, they have a right to SSM. 

What we believe and what you believe will always be like bucking heads because both sides refuse to give in.

However it is important to note that as a result of such head bucking, we do not have to resort to being bitter about each other because of opposing positions.

It’s about convincing both sides of what is right and what is wrong. 

Without question, sin is wrong. 

To homosexuals, homosexuality is not wrong because to them, it is not a sin. 

Even in the face of STDs, which is the “penalty of their error which was due,” they are fully convinced that their acts are still right, as vile and unnatural as it is.

What matters most to practicing homosexuals is a decision from the highest human court in the land to vindicate their argument to legitimize homosexuality as a normal activity worthy of the highest institution afforded between one man and one woman. 

Marriage Equality. 

We all know that homosexuals, at least the elite proponents that is pushing their agenda, is doing an end around the Holy Scriptures that absolutely prohibit homosexuality. 

According to Scripture, sin is never on equal footing with righteousness. So if homosexuals declare themselves free from the authority of the Scriptures, they seek authority elsewhere to hijack an institution created by God. 

The Supreme Court. 

With that said, believers must walk in Psalm 1.

We don’t have to engage in conflict where the hatred intensifies to where we remain hostile to each other. However, we know that hostilities is an expression of heated passion that is unreasonable. When homosexuals call for tolerance, they are intolerant of our refusal to accept homosexuality as normal. 

What we can learn from this is that God is God of love, and justice.

God is holy and righteous.

God will not let sin reign.

God will save you and deliver you when you are ready to be free.

Heart, Mind, Hands, & Eyes: Developing Courage & Fortitude To Stop Porn/Solo Sex LGBT

images-8James 1:14-15 from the Amplified Bible says, But every person is tempted when he is drawn away, enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust, passions). Then the evil desire, when it has conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is fully matured, brings forth death.”

There were many times I felt that I would never break free.

Day after day, and night after night, the urges and impulses kept resurfacing as if my body and mind required it without thought. Breaking free was as hopeless as a sinner forever gives up on becoming righteous.

Hopeless is defined as “a feeling or causing despair or the complete loss or absence of hope.” In other words, a persons has self determined that there is absolutely no chance. He or she has abandoned all hope.

These tendencies usually lead to suicidal thoughts because the person wants to end it all. The pressure to quit by suicide increases and is then carried out. That’s because a person tearfully desires to be free of the feeling of hopelessness. That person is seeking relief from feeling bad about the things they do, or may have done.

Remorse and guilt, if not dealt with from the Word of God will lead a person to the cliff or the end of the rope……..around their neck.

This is the way the devil pushes people into eternity without Christ.

This is the way the mind of the individual works because they believe that they are not worthy of the love of God.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

As long as you are alive, there is a chance to break free of porn and masturbation.

Your case is not the only case out there. You and I are in a group that isn’t exclusive. Secret Sexual Sins is not exclusive.

Billions of men and women around the world struggle with porn and masturbation every moment of every day. The media pushes these bondages everyday because of the money.

Paul said, “The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.” 1 Timothy 6:10a

It doesn’t take money to watch porn and masturbate because we have figured out a way to do it for free. The magazine stand, when men and women are walking outside going to work, lunch time. We look at television shows or movie theaters.

But when we want visual stimulation, then it is taken to another level with PPV, strip clubs, sports arenas, and other means of viewing. And do not think that church services are exempt. Certain women and men come with the deliberate intent to be seen. Or they quickly text for a romp.

Paul said in the book of Galatians 5:22, “But the fruit of the Spirit is……..self discipline.”

Discipline is about the heart attitude towards God.

Jesus said in John 14:15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments.”

All sin begins with the heart attitude towards God.

Proverbs 1:7 says, The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Before you can make a decision to stop using your hands and eyes, the heart and mind must come into alignment with God and His Word. The love of and for God must be paramount, principle, and tops above everything.

Jesus said in Matthew 22:37-38 Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment.”

The heart of man has made up it’s mind to have no other lovers, including loving yourself in porn and masturbation. You have sold yourself out to love God above anything and everything else.

The moment you sell everything that you have to have God is the moment that you set the course to be faithful to God. Then the mind follows. Your spirit instructs your mind to not think about illicit sex and your spirit man refuses to “…make provision for the flesh to fulfill its lusts.” (See Romans 13:14).

If you do not sell out completely to love God above your urges and impulses, above your hands and sexual organs to satisfy your sexual needs apart from marriage, to completely abandon yourself to the grace of God, you will watch flesh to masturbate. You must reach a place in this life where you love God more than porn and masturbation. When you do, you will find complete love in the Lord. Everything that you’ve ever wanted was in Him and not in solo sex or in a warm body of the opposite, or same sex in illegal sex.

The chain to sin sexually was broken on the cross. The death nature of the devil has no power over you because of the life, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. All you need to do is make a decision to stop, then enter into that place of loving the Lord, your God above porn and masturbation. When you fall back in love with Jesus and fall out of love with sin, the Lord will replace the loss with abundant grace, love, and power to overcome.

It takes courage and fortitude to walk out of the open prison door to freedom.

Courage to turn your back on a very close friend is treason. Up till now, porn and masturbation was your friend.

I’ve heard of a few stories of betrayal between homosexuals. They’ve had enough of the sinful lifestyle and returned to normal lives. Some even got saved by the Lord. They’ve betrayed their lover because they found out that what they were in was a lie. The satisfaction they were seeking was no where to be found. Each day, they fooled or deceived themselves into thinking that this is what they were missing in life.

Only to find out that the misery increased.

It’s a very difficult thing to turn your back on something that you forced yourself to believe in.

But you needed to be true and you made a break from Secret and Overt Sexual Sins.

For those of you that depend upon porn and masturbation, you thought that they were your best friends. Only to conclude that after it was over, you are feeling so bad about yourself that you needed a way out.

That’s the way sin is. It never leaves a person free. It always leads to bondage. And it always look to increase the madness. It doesn’t get better but it gets worse every day.

Romans 14:17 says “…for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”

There’s never a bad feeling after spending time in the presence of the Lord. There’s never a hangover or residual negative affects after feeding on the Word of His grace. The love for and of the Lord, when experienced, can keep the hands off of the sex organs, and the eyes from straying into the objectification of flesh.

The price Jesus paid to free us was a price no one is able to pay. But He paid the price and we can walk away free forever. This is a promise fulfilled when Jesus was raised from the dead. He lives forever as our Heavenly Intercessor. For He ever lives to make intercession for us. Jesus can step in and work within you to keep your hands and your eyes.

But you have to “present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God which is your reasonable service.”

You have to “cleanse yourself from the filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

You have to “Lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word that is able to your souls.”

When your heart and mind makes the quality decision to love the Lord with ALL YOUR HEART, SOUL, MIND AND STRENGTH, your hands and eyes will be completely devoted to serve God according to Romans chapter 6. You will yield your members to righteousness.

This include your sexual organs.

Relapse will be a thing of the past when your love for God increases on a moment by moment basis. Living the crucified life demands that you “Deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow Jesus.”

You do not take up the cross just carry it around. You take up the cross to die on it.

As Paul said in Colossians 3:5, “Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.”

Are you willing to die to be free? And I do not mean that you go out and commit suicide. I am spiritually speaking here. But wait a minute. You said, “Crucify yourself.” Now I’m confused!!!!!”

To be in Christ means that you do not pay attention to temptation and sin anymore like a dead man can’t pay attention to the living. Dead to sin means that you do not respond to the call to sin. This is what Jesus and Paul meant. We ignore the urges and impulses while we respond to the Lord in obedience to His Word.

“Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not. How shall we that are dead to sin live any longer in it?” Romans 6:1-2.
