The Cry For…..Hack……Authentic Preachers…….Hack!

For you that are young in the ministry, there is a word for you. Realize that things of the past are an indication of warning for preachers to change the way we do business.

Many young ones will not be able to tell you what is the central theme of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the central theme of all preaching. Many will tell you to save souls but watch their ministry. Watch what they preach and look at the results.

The church is in dire need of authentic preachers for the times. If the children of Israel were an example, we need to pay attention to the example and avoid their folly.

Sadly, the young ones will not heed because they are on a roll and the crowd loves them so much that for young preachers to change, it would put a crimp in their style, and they would decrease any exposure for new engagements. Any sign of real holiness, genuine righteousness, abstaining from fornication, and true repentance would chase people away and churches wouldn’t be packed.

A packed church with people screaming all over the place is a byproduct of Showtime At The Apollo.

Many of us who have been in the ministry for 30 plus years are seeing a defection from the truth of the gospel and a circus atmosphere in the pulpits. If you haven’t had a good time in church, you didn’t have church.

Well, we are not supposed to have church. We are supposed to be the church. And the church is supposed to live in such a way that the light shines and the salt is tasted. If all the world is tasting is candy, sweet and low, and nothing else, no wonder they can dictate terms of how the church is to behave because we have surrendered to their demands to leave the world alone.

Litte do we realize that legislation is getting to the place where a restriction on the gospel is about to be imposed. Now the politicians will not mind your circus preaching and lack of holiness. You are safe. You won’t be bothered.

But the ones that decide not to be restricted by the laws of man, the real holy preachers with authentic living, we are not a threat. We promise to live the Word and preach the Word, with holy zeal, and authentic conviction.

We are seeing the church accept the standards of the world as the gold standard for the church.

Lights, cameras, world class musicians, and all.

We don’t mind preaching and illicit sex and blatant homosexuality.

We don’t mind preachers and drug addicts, sex addicts, and alcoholics.

We don’t mind practicing harlots in praise and worship and bisexual music ministers.

We don’t mind promiscuous porn and masturbation having music ministers.

We don’t mind profits (intentionally misspelled) coming in to fleece the flock with great generalized swelling words that sway a crowd that love to have their ears ticked.

Most preachers that have these meetings come with feather in hand anyway.

When I look at the FB lineup of preachers and see YouTube “evangelists” preaching to sheep, this Word of the Lord given to Jeremiah, the prophet come mind. Here’s the Word of the Lord to Jeremiah that depicts the prophets and preachers of our day today. If you measure up, by all means, repentance is authorized.

Jeremiah 23…..

30 “Therefore behold, I am against the prophets,” says the Lord, “who steal My words every one from his neighbor.

31 Behold, I am against the prophets,” says the Lord, “who use their tongues and say, ‘He says.’

32 Behold, I am against those who prophesy false dreams,” says the Lord, “and tell them, and cause My people to err by their lies and by their recklessness. Yet I did not send them or command them; therefore they shall not profit this people at all,” says the Lord.

33 “So when these people or the prophet or the priest ask you, saying, ‘What is the oracle of the Lord? ’ you shall then say to them, ‘What oracle?’ I will even forsake you,” says the Lord.

34 “And as for the prophet and the priest and the people who say, ‘The oracle of the Lord!’ I will even punish that man and his house.

35 Thus every one of you shall say to his neighbor, and every one to his brother, ‘What has the Lord answered?’ and, ‘What has the Lord spoken?’

36 And the oracle of the Lord you shall mention no more. For every man’s word will be his oracle, for you have perverted the words of the living God, the Lord of hosts, our God.

37 Thus you shall say to the prophet, ‘What has the Lord answered you?’ and, ‘What has the Lord spoken?’

38 But since you say, ‘The oracle of the Lord!’ therefore thus says the Lord: ‘Because you say this word, “The oracle of the Lord!” and I have sent to you, saying, “Do not say, ‘The oracle of the Lord! ’”

39 therefore behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you and forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and will cast you out of My presence.

40 And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.’”

The cry for authentic preachers ascend to the throne of God.

It’s tough being critical of false teachers and preachers, pastors, bishops, apostles, evangelists, teachers, and such. This cry for authentic preachers is not something that we should ignore.

Most of my ministry was spent in hypocrisy. The written and audio blogs that I was privileged to share is already out there and there is no real additional reason to regurgitate my episodes of sins.

But I will say this…..I know my contribution to inauthenticity of preachers and it is not pretty.

For the rest of my life, I intend to devote as much time to shaping the mindset of current preachers that are on the scene. For those that are young in the ministry (10 to 15 years), you were called at a critical time in the earth to live and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I look at your young faces and I see energy, excitement, and zeal.

It’s hard not to say what is lacking. You really can’t base a person’s ministry on one presentation. However, one presentation speaks volumes to those that listen to your preaching.

What is it that we are seeing from these young preachers?

We are seeing emotional zeal and fervor. It looks like fire. But there is no smoke because the kind of fire that comes from God is non existent because of the life of a lack of blowing on the consecrated embers in the secret place of His presence.

There is zeal, but there is no awe of God or deep conviction that captures the heart and steers people towards God. Altar calls of the people of God is not a real gauge of closeness to God. Closeness to God is determined in secret places. Where religiosity is not hypocritical or short lived.

These young preachers have great words prepared to “move” the crowd, but they are given to people that already know. And we see tears, hands raised, and a lot of emotion from the people but is that the Lord or just emotion?

Do you still hunt for flesh after service? You can have these things in you but do you act on these urges and impulses because you can’t help yourself? Temptation is not sin, but do you sin as a result of temptation, even after a “high and holy time in the presence of the Lord?”

Proof of lives being changed by preaching and teaching is when a person walks away from a meeting and God spoke to them about their Secrets.

“God doesn’t do this all the time,” you say, but stemming from the LGBT gay/homosexual agenda against the church, there is no question in my mind that the Lord is speaking about this loud and clear, all the time. We are in the midst of troubled times and a lack of sexual discipline is at the root of all this mess that is in the church.

The church is not at the gates of the enemy because the enemy possess our gates. And as long as you are willing to commit sin on a regular practiced basis, the enemy occupies your temple.

Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit…….right?

Well if you commit sin, the temple is now desecrated.

No matter how good a preacher sound, if he or she is compromised, tainted goods, that “anointing” is worthless and it will not profit you.

But most people that come to meetings are hoping that the Lord doesn’t go there.

There are other places we want the Spirit of God to go. Like our money. Our houses. Our cars. Yeah, Lord…..hack!

But when we are caught with our hands on ourselves sexually. Or when we are in sister Suzzie’s linen or satin sheet bedroom, we do not want the Lord to reveal that. Or when unmarried sisters are smoothed talked by married or unmarried, or bisexual Evangelist James Slickslide, he slips his hand on your black laced backside, and you are “anointed” with Secret Sexual Sins.

When that good looking preacher just can’t help himself to watch porn and masturbate.

No….hack!…...we don’t…..hack……want God…….hack……to go there! Hack!!!!

“Uncovering Orgies In The Church.”

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.

Why?

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.

Repentance: Changing The Bible Rules On Repentance; Too Proud To Repent

Repentance.

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.

Why?

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.

Stop tripping.

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.

REPENT!

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.”

What?

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.

Proverbs 28:13.

“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.

Course Changers

Are You One?

The Chick-Fil-A Aftermath; A Defining Moment.

Chick Fil A Appreciation Day was a defining moment in world history.

While it is the right of American citizens to protest, remember, Chick Fil A Appreciation Day was not a day of protest.

The LGBTQ community will have their “protest” and they have a right in America to do so.

But just because they have a right to protest, it doesn’t exonerate them or justify them and the sin of homosexuality.

The Bible is still the same and the Lord is still the same about all sin.

One more thing.

The love of the Lord for homosexuals, lesbians, adulterers, fornicators (porn), bisexuals, and all sinners is the same too.

They may or may not believe that the Lord and true believers in Christ love them, but we cannot make them come to Christ just as they cannot make us accept the sin of homosexuality.

For the most part, we do see serious and egregious statements made by extreme radical LGBTQ people as well as extreme radical overzealous people that claim to be Christians.

Many people, carnal Christians too, believe that preaching and living against sin is inconsequential. And many believe that the maladies associated with sin is not going to happen to them but the numbers (which I will not get into) speaks for itself.

Anyway…..

Christians were asked by former Arkansas governor, Mike Huckabee to show “appreciation” for a Christian organization to make a concerted stand on Biblical values that teach that marriage, as ordained by God, is between one man and one woman according to Genesis 2:24. And that the sin of homosexuality brings reproach and judgment upon a nation according to Proverbs 14:34.

This statement was made by Mr. Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick-Fil-A and it resounded.

All across America, people came out to support, not protest, an organization that cherish and support family values etched and evidenced in their own personal family lives.

As a result of glorifying God, the benefits in a downturn economy is being reaped. Chick-Fil-A doesn’t work on Sunday so that the families that work for Chick-Fil-A would have a day of worshipping God and rest. As a result, records for their fast food chain were broken.

And yes, even residual tax revenue will be passed to some struggling city economies. God knows how to bless His people that honor Him and His Word, even in the face of fierce opposition from those that love their sin more than they love God.

Why was it necessary for a statement of this magnitude be made?

Take a look around you and you will see unemployment at 8.2%, for African Americans, 14% to 16%. And for Latinos, it’s around probably 10%, more or less. Drought is hitting the Midwest hard. The system of greed is still in place. The housing crisis is showing very small signs of recovery but banks, in their greed mode is not lending and they have tightened restrictions.

The existing homes in foreclosure is putting a damper on the economy. The property tax collections is hurting the overall state and local economies.

Europe is about to capsize, and you know it.

Going back to the banks, they still think that people will pursue credit and their system is rigged to swallow what little paycheck you have left in hefty interest rates.

Already, the Fed Chairman, is looking for banks to have 7% liquidity in the event of another financial crisis. Federal law require banks to have 2% liquidity.

This is only an indication that they know another recession is about to hit and Europe is about to go under with long term repercussions affecting the whole world, including the United States.

You can’t be the richest nation on earth with a 13 trillion dollar deficit with China holding the American economy hostage with our debt. It’s like a large cruise ship is taking on water and only one person has a bucket, trying to scoop the water out while saying, “We are not sinking.”

The abortion industry is still killing 1.2 million babies annually and their funding is evaporating rapidly.

Corporate jobs in the private sector is not flowing freely as before. Kids coming out of college will not find jobs for which they carry degrees for. Saddled with student loan debt and credit card debt before they could get a job, is forcing them to look at other alternatives unimagined. Cuts across the board in pay, pensions, medical, dental, and other benefits is hurting people all across the board and now you see the reason behind Obamacare.

Even the military has tighten restrictions on admitting below standard civilians and with reason.

Money.

It used to be easy to get into the military in a downturn economy but now, the nation’s military only want the best qualified candidates.

Here’s the reason. Less trouble. Trouble people in the military decreases military readiness. Trouble people in the military decreases “good morals, good order, and discipline.”

Isn’t this a joke now that DADT is repealed.

Trouble people is defined as the combination of out of shape and low education standards civilians.

The military spends billions on training and equipment.

The greatest resource of any military power is the soldier, sailor, marine, and airman. If they scrutinize more, it’s because they want to spend more time training the right mentally and physically fit person. There is no more under the radar civilians getting a free pass.

If you are looking to get in, do not try “Just barely.” The military is looking for civilians that will exceed standards to maintain the military edge over potential adversaries.

For the military, that means less jail time, less dropouts, less trouble people all across the board. So if you wonder why you didn’t make the cut, it’s because the military has raised its standards. And don’t even think that you may get to stay if you are in.

If you are below par, retention is not as easy as you think.

They will let you go in a heart beat if you are underperforming.

Even the drug trade is experiencing a significant decrease in revenue.

When you have major drug cartels fighting each other with ferocity, it’s serious. Just recently, a drug cartel beheaded three rival drug cartel workers on the border of Mexico. It is a clear indication that the United States is still demanding drugs on an unprecedented scale, but nonetheless, at a slower demand pace.

The competition for dollars is fierce. It used to be that they would negotiate and settle the issue amicably. Not any more. Greed is greed and there are no rules in covetousness on the depraved indifference level.

The combination of a downturn economy, and semi effective drug interdiction.

Record billion dollar deficits is hurting the states and they are looking for ways to squeeze every dollar, including obtaining concession from union workers as well as increasing work production rules.

Less money to staff first responders such as fire, police and other emergency service personnel. If a natural disaster were to hit in the United States, it would hurt no matter where the disaster takes place.

The state tax revenue that once was there, is gone. Just ask the mayor of Chicago. Right now, for him and any other mayor, God did him, and the other towns that have a Chick Fil A franchise, a favor. And they should be thanking God that the little extra tax revenue helped. Not to mention residual tax revenue.

Just take a look at Detroit, Michigan. Thousands of houses are empty and certain sections have become dumping grounds for murder victims.

The education system is more concerned about teaching children sexual acts of homosexuality cloaked in the “tolerance” teaching, subjecting innocent children to sexual perversion. Preparing the next generation of perversion.

Not to mention pedophiles, criminal sex addicts, child molestation, serial rapists, and other forms of lewd criminal behavior. This includes those that use their professional position to access vulnerable people and abuse them sexually. Including pastors.

Are we sure we want to educate children on the perverted ways of homosexuality? Knowing that this door is the door that further the moral erosion of families?

WHAT BROUGHT THIS ALL ABOUT?

SIN.

Selfish Individual Needs.

Many want to lie to you and tell you that homosexual love is equivalent to heterosexual love. This is never the point. It is smoke in mirrors. It is about the commission of sin. A violation of the Word of God. The willful disregard of the Word of God. Sin is the blatant act of hatred against the known will of God. It is the transgression of the law. Sin is lawlessness. Sin is what Jesus died for.

THE DEFINING MOMENT IS THE ACKNOWLEDGMENT THAT MAN HAS SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. AND MAN’S ONLY REMEDY IS THE CROSS OF CHRIST, REPENTANCE AND THE RESURRECTION POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, CALLED THE NEW BIRTH.

The late Dr. Lester Sumrall preached a message almost 10 maybe 15 years ago about the economic experiences and conditions of our time. That sin is inextricably connected to poverty. Scriptural authority for the statement, Romans 5:12.

The change of course in the morals of Christians and sinners in this nation demanded a defining moment.

Wednesday, August 1, 2012, was that defining moment.

The promotion of sin is never in the best interests of people. For sin is defiance of God.

The church didn’t help prior to this because of its dirty laundry of double standards that precipitated the homosexual agenda. For years, homosexuals sang, played keyboards, and preached without opposition. Not to mention the fact that adultery, fornication, porn, and self gratification is still rampant in the church today. Pastors are involved in more sex scandals than at any time in it’s history.

Proof?

Internet accessibility has made it easier to tap into porn, masturbation, setting up sexual rendezvous, and other connected sins. Pastors are bringing the world of sin right into the pulpit from their homes.

The evidence is when they are asked to make a stand against the sin of homosexuality or any sin, they can’t, because chances are, unless you know them, they are in bed with Secret Sexual Sins.

If they aren’t in bed, they are preaching soft Christian messages that fail to challenge the child of God today to live sanctified, holy lives, free of sin. They are still preaching “Christian light” messages that fail to bring people to a place of conviction of personal sin and repentance before God.

Unless I am wrong, we have yet to hear these “heavy” preachers stand with Mr. Dan Cathy. But they won’t. A defining moment in history for the church must be taken advantaged of. Personal kingdom and empire building is for the dead birds. For once, we need to see these people stand for something meaningful and not for themselves to improve their legendary rock star of preachers status.

Some of them are so afraid of losing people that they steer clear of controversy intentionally. That’s so they don’t offend the biggest contributors that sit in their churches, giving away thousands. It’s tough preaching in an empty church but if you got a crowd of sinners, and you do not bring them to the altar in true repentance and giving their entire lives to Jesus, it’s no different.

It’s a shame when a known prostitute, based on a documented interview said that prostitutes sit in a known west coast mega church with ease. They sit near their clients and their client’s wives during service. Why? No conviction messages about the holy presence of the Lord. Why? Because perhaps, the pastor is a client. You never know these days.

Some of you know full well what your pastor is up to, yet, you still go to their church and listen to their hypocrisy. The worst kind of hypocrite is a pastor. Just read Matthew chapter 23 and Ezekiel 34 and you will see it.

What I am getting at is that the church has made a statement but if our statement has the hint of Secret Sexual Sins, we are hypocrites of the highest order. And that makes satan proud.

We must now look at ourselves through the mirror of the Word and make drastic corrections to bring our lives up to the standard of the Word of God and stop being hypocrites.

Many have accused the Body of Christ of not feeding the poor and sheltering the homeless. These accusation are powerful if we are not doing first things first. “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness…” But I also find that statements about feeding the homeless and ministering to the needs of the poor are distraction statements designed to shift the focus of attention off this issue of sin.

Folks fall for it all the time and when we forget about sin, it doesn’t matter. God is concerned about your heart attitude toward Him and He can feed you any and every day. But when you die, which would you rather have?

The salvation of the Lord or a full belly going to hell?

Cold. Not really. Especially when you have an expiration date which make food and shelter almost a muted point.

We must seek God in righteousness first and then minister to the needs of others. And this could be done simultaneously. But we can no longer look the other way and sin at will as the world.

The worst thing that we can do is stop seeking God and seek to please LGBTQ’s accusation.

More defining moments are ahead of us.

What we do after this is the true defining moment. Will lives be changed by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ or are we satisfied with this one display of Christian camaraderie? Are we going back to our cubby holes or will be choose to be salt and light in the earth. And yes, would we be daring enough to invite sinners to sit at the table and feed them, clothe them, house them, and minister the gospel to them?

We should never be a social gospel alone. But we should never look the other way after we came out and made an open display.

Let’s work on our out of the spot light defining moments. 

It starts with coming back to the Lord in true repentance. It continues in the true family nucleus. One man, one woman. Marriage. Not alternatives. Not substitutes.

It continues by teaching our children Biblical values that promote righteousness, not sin.

It is solidified, nurtured, and cared for within the local church.

Perhaps, by changing the way we do business, the church would once again be a place where God’s convicting power be ministered, lives would be changed, and God would be glorified.

Are we up to the challenge?

The Hypocrite

One of the greatest leadership messages ever preached by Jesus was Matthew chapter 23. It was perhaps, His last greatest preaching message.

By anyone’s standard, if Jesus were to preach at some of these leadership meetings of today, the whole crowd would be ready to stone Him and crucify Him the same day without a trial.

Today, there are many preachers that walk up to their pulpits and do not think about repentance and receiving forgiveness for their own sins.

They perform their sacerdotal functions on impulse. As “professional pulpiteers, “ we know how to do what we do blindfolded. We know just what to pray to get the right kind of feel before we assume the podium. We preeeeeacccccch with ease.

After it’s all over, we go back to the cave of dead man’s bone, the pastor’s study. We unzip our robes and place them in our garment bags. When we get home we take our suits off to prepare to take it to the cleaners. Our Bibles, well….we put it back on the bookshelf until next week.

As we walk to the cars, under security escort, and drive off, it’s back to business as usual.

We watch women lustfully, fantasize about having sex with them other than our wives, or worse, we have sex with our wives, thinking that it’s the woman we lusted after in our wicked unrepentant minds. Or worse, we make excuses like, “I forgot something at the church, I’ll be back.”

That’s code for…. Rendezvous with sister Suzie Q or mister Sonny Q for adultery, fornication, homosexual, or bisexual sex.

Hot under the collar? Blushing?

This is the heart of the hypocrite.

The man or woman of God that you thought was right before God.

Or this is the man or woman of God and you already know that this is what’s up, and you are ok with it. They are just human.

Or, child molestation and sex with minors. Plenty of these kinds of perverts.

And don’t forget the porn watching, self gratification, commonly called masturbation pastors, preachers, praise and worship singers, dancers, and deacons.

Oh. And don’t forget about the deft defying music minister that floors the people every week but is found in the hotel room with a praise and worship leader or worse, a male praise and worship leader. Or, perhaps, hanging out miles out of town with another homosexual person.

Some of the greatest pulpiteers live like this every week and it’s a wonder that they are ever standing before people. Call it the fumes of His mercy. Many of us think that this is not happening but let’s not fool ourselves. The sexual immorality of our times has crept into the church and we have yet to see massive repentance.

For now, the church is addressing same sex issues with vigor unlike at anytime. However, behind all this is the vast majority of people that still live closet lives. Not just homosexuals.

We are talking about people and leaders in the Body that think that now that the spot light is off of them, they can carry on without detection. It’s strange that all of a sudden, the issues of our day could be used as cover to keep Secret Sexual Sins a secret.

But this is precisely what is happening.

Never judge a book by its cover but we can’t trust the cover any longer.

Week after week, I came to preach and the heart of the hypocrite was bigger than life in me. If I could preach other sermons, pretending to be right, knowing full well I was wrong, then I could continue in my sin of porn and masturbation.

You kind of figure that if you are married, there is no need for this sin, but it is very easy to fool yourself into thinking that you need to do this because you need it.

Without going into too much detail, from 1998 to 2008, porn was a regular thing in my life; no relapse. From 1976 to 2009, habitual masturbation was a regular thing in my life, with a few relapses since then.

There came a point in my life where if I am going to please the Father completely, I need to stop and not be hypocritical about it. The worst kind of preacher is a hypocritical preacher. We have no business handling the Word of God if we cannot live by the Word ourselves.

So, I made a statement that if I go down this path again, that’s it for ministry. I will not step down. I will stop and leave the ministry for good, never to be heard from again. While repentance opens the door for a return, I would never even entertain the thought of returning if sin comes back into my life.

I can’t teach others to stop if I can’t stop.

Therefore, I must do my “due diligence.” Proverbs 4:23 says, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it springs or flows the issues of life.”

If I can’t keep my heart, then I am in the wrong business. You can’t help people when you refuse help for yourself. That’s why it is important that we measure our lives based on our willingness to keep His commandments, for His commandments are not burdensome.

Leaders are held to a higher standard and if we fail this standard, it is deemed by others as permission to sin. That’s why we must do everything in accordance with His Word. I do not have time to play Internet or FB games. It distracts me from concentrating on the Word of God for me. Sermons is not what I am building. Life building is what I am building.

And yes, I lead a boring life.

Me and God.

Why?

The enemy doesn’t want me to have any success at destroying what almost destroyed me. Therefore, if I come across serious, you better believe that I am deadly serious about what I am doing. The devil would love to have my name back in his trophy case. MY name was removed by the grace of God and it will stay off of that trophy.

You can go ahead and be a hypocrite. No one will stop you. But one thing that you have to look forward to. Accountability before the throne of God.

The power to live a victorious life begins with acknowledging that you need help. You need someone that can show you how to take the Word of God and apply it to your own life. It took me a long time to take the Word and work the Word for me. I have not yet apprehended as Paul said.

I am still learning some things about me and the Lord is showing me what I need to do to make sure that I am right before Him. The focus is on me. God knows how to help His people, and He knows how to help me. So it makes no sense trying to help others if the Word can’t help me.

But to help others, The Hypocrite must have its funeral preached, burial detail standing by, twenty-one guns salutes sounded, firing party firing its volleys, taps played, flag presented. Depart forever. Never to return.

LGBT: Who’s Behind Their “Power”?- Pay No Attention To That Person Behind The Curtain

Ezekiel 28:11-19, Isaiah 14:12-17, Revelation 12:7-9, Genesis chapter 3, 2 Corinthians 4:4 and Ephesians 2:1-3.

In these verses of Scripture reveals the origin of the power behind the darkness of this world.

For those that know their Bible, the reason is clear.

Many that claim to be in the church and those that are in the world still do not believe that there is a devil that is instigating issues of darkness.

Many believe that Jesus walked the earth. So, what’s the problem?

After the Lord was baptized in the river Jordan by His earthly cousin, John the Baptist, the Holy Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

When it was time for Jesus to be betrayed by Judas, after Judas dipped his bread after Jesus dipped, satan entered into Judas.

When Jesus asked a question about what people were saying about Him, and when Jesus explained to them that He would be betrayed, be killed, and be placed in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights, Peter took Jesus aside and rebuked Jesus. Jesus in turn looked at Peter and said, “satan, get behind me. You pay more attention to the things of men and not the things of God.”

Obviously, for those that have understanding, the Lord is speaking to the devil that inspired Peter to rebuke the Lord.

If you are spiritually astute, you now got a glimpse of happens when people think, speak, and act. The spiritual source behind every person is always revealed in a person’s thought, speech, and actions.

In that order.

It is either evil or it is good.

Jesus said it like this….

“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.”

Please note that it’s not a grammatical error of the person of the devil, spelling satan with a lower case letter is only fitting for him. Because the devil is such a low life loser, having been defeated by the King of kings and the Lord of lords over two thousand years ago.

In all movies, there is always good and evil. In most cases, its movies show how good always triumphs over evil. So again, the question is asked.

What’s the problem?

Well, we look at our lives and we see that we are either driven by God or the devil. Our actions reveal “who’s our daddy.”

Having said this, years ago, as people started coming out of the closet, many became very vocal and outspoken. Almost to the point where it appeared that they had numbers. Many voices. Paul Neil shared something that is worth noting and he receives the credit for this that many in “hollywood, the rich, and famous,” (the rest are my words) are the puppet masters or the puppet master associates.

But even they are not the real power behind LGBTQ. 

You see, the person you think is pulling the strings on a puppet is on a set of strings him or herself.

Demonic strings.

When they are challenged by the light of the glorious gospel, the demons speak venomous things to try to push the light back out. Granted, there are people that claim to be believers in Christ that say things just as harsh and at times worse than LGBTQ people.

Those that claim to be believers, yet speak evil things, do not speak for those that operate according to 1 John 4:7-16. They are not in the will of God and we that are true to the Lord, condemn all behavior inconsistent with true Christ-like, Biblical values.

In listening to Dr. Michael Brown, the majority of people that practice the sin of homosexuality just want to be left alone.

I heard that but it doesn’t mean we surrender, dilute, or shrink back from speaking the truth, the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ, in love.

Then where is this other stuff coming from?

Those that are in high positions in almost every state.

God doesn’t have puppets and He doesn’t have strings. Those that are saved, willingly submit to the power of God. And at anytime, if we so choose, we could return to the demonic puppet master.

At any time, I can watch porn and masturbate (I still have Directv and access to the Internet). At any time, I can act out my former sinful sexual self. But I don’t want to because God loved me, and saved me, and delivered me from the horrible pit of sin. There is no desire to return because He fully satisfies me with good things so my youth is renewed like the eagles.

Besides, the Bible also says, “As many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.”

We are not pulled to act, we are inspired by the Holy Spirit to act.

At any time, we can stop ourselves from being led by the Spirit. We are not manipulated or coerced. And while there is repercussions for disobedience to the Lord, the Lord gives His people space to repent.

With the devil, when he gives power, he takes it away. Why? With the world, it’s about worship. World Idol. Every person that received glory from the world was destroyed. Count them up. How did some of them die? And even if they went “peaceful” if they died outside of Christ, in hell they lifted up their eyes.

All that work for nothing but eternal separation from the presence of the Lord in the pit of hell, called Hades, and after that, the judgment, and the lake of fire forever.

One thing about shows and actors, we forget that an actor is a hypocrite. That’s what an actor is. A play actor. They come out of who they are and assume the personality of their character. Depending upon their spiritual source, it’s either good or bad.

More than likely, it is bad.

You see, their sin on screen influences sin off the screen. In other words, those that are in darkness, plunge further into darkness. Those that have yet to plunge initially will plunge and be caught by demonic forces portrayed though hearts of darkness, teaching people the ways of darkness.

And when they stand on stage, you do not see them as a real person, you see the spirit that drives them and they think they are bigger in life. You acclimate to their sinful ways and fall into sin because they taught you. They trained you. They copycatted what they do and they pursue it with fierce gusto.

And if you try to preach to them the righteousness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, they will fight you. With our African American hip hop artists, now you see why they act out what they rap about or they are already acting out. It’s that they have found a way to communicate it to the masses, and more African American copycats show up.

That’s why the Lord Jesus said, “…unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

That’s the only way you will be able to bear good fruit. Yet, many that aren’t born again are trying to bear good fruit and we know that this is impossible, based on what the Lord Jesus said.

“…a bad tree cannot bear good fruit…”

Therefore, LGBTQ people or anyone that is not born again, cannot bear good fruit.

So there is a tremendous effort to discredit, restrict, impose man made laws and policy, speak evil of the people of God on the level of Goliath towards Israel, use violence, use politics, use the media, circumvent Internet free speech rights, use and play stupid childish, immature computer savvy blocking methods, harass, belittle and degrade anyone that uses the Word of God to tell the truth in love.

Modern day Gestapo, North Korea, Chinese and every other evil national totalitarian tactics to stop the truth. It’s not just the people that do these things, it’s the devil and his angels driving unregenerate people to do these things because they are blinded by the god of this world called the devil.

When the Soviet Union collapsed and the Berlin Wall was busted through, the people shouted. In fact, on one tape, at the Berlin Wall, the people that were once held captive by communism sang, “This Is The Day The Lord Has Made” in German.

If what the Bible said weren’t perceived as a clear threat, the devil and his kids wouldn’t even bother to say a word. But because the gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation, the promise of being made free by Jesus is too great a promise not to ignore.

Because when people are free, corrupt systems disappear.

The more homosexuals, lesbians, adulterers, fornicators, bisexuals and all sinners come out of the dark places to His marvelous light, the LGBTQ community would suffer heavy political loss.

Their sin of homosexuality would see a considerable decrease.

That’s why they push so hard vocally and vehemently against real marriage and righteousness according to the Word of God.

Back in 2004 or so, it seemed as if LGBTQ numbers were like 15% or more of the American population. This would be a formidable number because that means their influence appears to be heavy in every state and major populated cities.

But after they did an analysis of their actual numbers, it turned out to be significantly much less.

How significant?

2% to 3% of the American population, which is far less than the African American minority numbers at between 12% and 14% of the US population. Yet, African Americans make of half the HIV/AIDS cases annually in America.

Go figure.

Why do they seem bigger?

Because heterosexual couples that live in sin or they are actually married support homosexual marriage. Coupled with the fact that politicians embraced their lobbyists. Coupled with the fact that the media embraced their sin of homosexuality. Not because it was popular but they saw another way to make money. Yes, they are being used like a dingy, rain soaked, never cleaned, floor mat and they do even know it.

Talk about being played.

Just like African Americans that do not know the truth are being played.

Each and every year, they vote blindly and stupidly. Hoping that they would one day “overcome.”

They do not mind if you keep singing, “We Shall Overcome” because if you knew the God of the Bible and the New Testament, ratified by the blood of Jesus said, “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” you would stop singing that song.

That song of hope remains an expectation that never will happen and that you will never overcome and win. That’s exactly what the devil behind the curtain wants you to think.

So they add to the voice behind the curtain. And they are just as boisterous.

Another hidden figure is the amount of bisexual activity that goes on with unregenerate men and women.

But the God of the Bible, the Word of God, and the redeemed of the Lord is not a threat.

We are a promise.

The promise of hope, and joy when a person is turned from the power of satan to God, from the power of darkness to light. From sin to righteousness. From a child of hell to a child of God. From the presence of demonic forces to the presence of the Lord.

With the Chick-fil-A situation, again, they tried to use the tactic of “loud and boisterous” in hopes that they would strike fear and terror.

A pip squeak called satan, defeated by Jesus, is behind the curtain, remember.

We are not impressed or intimidated.

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous hand. Behold, all those who were incensed against you shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing (hence the title of my blog), and those who strive with you shall perish, You shall seek them and not find them- Those who contend with you. Those who war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing. For I, the Lord your GOd, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.” 

LGBT, Sodomites, Adulterers, Fornicators, And Bisexuals In Church; Getting Help (Part 1)

When you go to church, take a good look around you. You could be sitting next to an adulterer, an adulteress, a fornicator, a homosexual or sodomite, a lesbian, a bisexual, a transgender person. You could be sitting next to a person that watched porn and masturbated last night and came to church. On the outside, it looks like they are all right. But deep inside a struggle ensues. The battle rages within their minds and bodies.

Walking sexual time bombs.  The chain gang of sexual bondage.

The church is to be a place where sinners come to be saved. Where sin is abandoned for freedom in Christ. Where sinners come to receive the power of God and be saved from a life of sin. The church is supposed to be a place where people come to get help.

That’s what the church is supposed to be about.

It doesn’t help when people are turned away because of a lack of sensitivity to their situation. On the other hand, sensitivity must never come with permission to remain in sin. The compassion of the Lord works to help people be free from sin, not to continue in sin as if God approved.

Watching people turn their lives over to the Lord is what the church is supposed to be about. To never let sin dominate them.

Sadly, in many of our churches today, many are walking into the church, they sing in our choirs, play instruments, preach, and assume other leadership roles while practicing sin.

Coming in and leaving the same way they came.

I find that to be in church requires that something in me changes to reflect that I am truly born again, that I would never be the same. We are finding that people come in and leave the same way.

Still bound in sin instead of gaining freedom and victory over their darkest secrets.

Perhaps they want to use the church to justify their sin.

More often, we are finding that people that come to church are not seeking to justify sin. We are finding that people are not just using church activity to give them a sense of God’s acceptance. It’s like taking a bath after you’ve sinned a sexual sin, looking for cleansing. Or you go into a cleansing fit, cleaning up the house.

We go to church to have a “cleansing fit.”

But we really never learn to overcome.

Hence, Paul’s statement in Ephesians 4:20,

“You have not so learned Christ.”

I know what this is like from the time of my grossly habitual hypocrisy in self gratification, commonly called masturbation and porn. You’ve sinned against the Lord and against your own body, and your conscience lets you know about it. The Holy Spirit within you is grieved or saddened.

Many days that after I’ve sexually gratified myself, that I felt hopeless. Wondering if I would ever be free. In many people that live in sexual bondage, the LGBT argument resounds. And even I, in what was my bondage, said the same thing.

” I am bound to this and it will never stop. So stop denying who you are sexually and accept it. It’s the way you were created by God, so give yourself to it. You know you need this. Stop trying to stop who you are and accept it. You will never change, just accept it!”

You look every where to get cleansed.

A bath.

Cleaning something in the house.

Anything to escape the guilt that follows after sin is committed.

We even invoke 1 John 1:9.

Many of us have wore that verse of Scripture out. The blessing about that verse is that it cannot be wore out. It could be abused to appease the guilty feeling on the inside but that is remorse.

The difference with remorse is that you are only sorry that you got caught and that you are trying everything possible to reduce the shame associated with the guilt of sin.

That’s why repentance commands us to turn, not keep turning from sin and then return to sin again. That’s revolving door appeasement. I used to call it revolving door repentance but true repentance understands how to turn away forever from the very thing Jesus died for.

True repentance is establishing one fact.

That one turns from sin because God was offended and that you do not ever want to hurt God again.

This is where many believers caught in Secret Sexual Sins are.

The urges and impulses of our flesh and mind gets the best of us when we are not meditating on the Word day and night. As soon as we are exposed to something by the Internet, the newspaper, the activities on the street, our minds shifts from righteousness to unrighteousness.

Almost like clockwork, at the flip of a switch, we aggressively pursue sexual satisfaction.

Have you ever been to the place where you were thinking about the Lord and His Word. All of a sudden your are provoked by sexuality in women. I don’t know what SSA is in experience. But the struggle with SSA (same sex attraction) in men and with women in the church is there.

If you are not disciplined, you do what you have to do to answer the sexual satisfaction call of the flesh and the mind.

You “got off”  and all of a sudden, as you are sitting on the edge of your bed, you cry tears of bondage. You’ve sinned again after you promised the Lord that you would never let Him down again.

You are plunged into utter despair, helplessness, and hopelessness. 

So we see churches struggling to address the issue of sex, homosexuality, and bisexuality.

Sex is supposed to be a beautify act of physically love between one man and one woman in holy matrimony according to the precedent set by the Lord God in Genesis 2:24. A beautiful thing has been perverted and the depravity of men is now the new pursuit of the 21st Century.

This is not a psychological or mental situation.

Sin is a spiritual issue that requires a spiritual remedy.

Anytime a person tells you that there is more to it than sin being a spiritual issue, they must remember that sin is the cause of all things that happened badly in the world. The fall of Adam triggered a massive defection away from God.

Sin is responsible for death. Death is separation from life. So when we sin against God, we are cutting ourself off from God (see James 1:12-15).

Therefore, to assume any another explanation is avoiding the issue.

Listen to what Paul said in Ephesians 4:17-19,

“This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.”

Notice what Paul said, “given themselves over to lewdness…”

To give yourself over to something is a direct defection from discipline. In other words, you lose self control and you do everything in your power to achieve an objective.

Look at the word “over.”

When you give yourselves “over,” this is the Greek word “paradidomi,” and it means “to surrender, or yield up.”

And this is what every person that is struggling with Secret Sexual Sins face every moment of the day.

The struggle to keep yourself from sinning sexually, to give yourself over to “aselgeia.”

 That’s the Greek word used to describe “unbridled lust, excess, outrageousness, lasciviousness, wantonness, shamelessness, insolence.”

You are coming to church to get it right but you haven’t found a way. You return the way you came.

Is there a way of escape? Is God going to help me? Will I ever find peace and satisfaction that God promised? Or am I forever lost to my urges and impulses?

The answer, when LGBT, Sodomites, Adulterers, Fornicators, And Bisexuals In Church; Getting Help (Part Two) comes.

Sexual Immorality: Pulpit Pimp Wimps & Devilish Bullies

As I watch the aftermath of the president’s announcement to support same sex marriage, you wonder where in the world are those that are to be standard bearers of the truth. On many of the mainline news, we see Carlton Pearson, T.D. Jakes, and others take a stand against the Word of God.

For instance, During a one on one interview, Bishop Jakes was asked about what African American pastors are saying about the fact of the president’s Christianity.

Bishop Jakes responded in such a way that it questioned what he is really all about.

In a nut shell, Bishop Jakes expressed his “disappointment” that some pastors do not think that the president is a Christian.

Well.

Is it possible to be a Christian and support the sin of homosexuality? Is it possible to be a Christian and support fornication? Is it possible to be a Christian and support adultery? Is it possible to be a Christian and support lesbians? Is it possible to be a Christian and support lying, cheating, stealing, bisexuality, bestiality, porn, masturbation, etc.?

What does the Bible say about sin and why did Jesus come to the earth? He came to die for the sins of the world.

To defend sin is to be a friend of the world according to James 4:4.

If you are going to defend a person that supports sexual immorality, you can’t be a friend of God until you repent. This is what sympathetic African American or any other race of pastors do. Instead of disrespecting sin and supporters of sin, they end up disrespecting God and His Word.

How will people know the difference between righteousness and unrighteousness if we support the thing that we are supposed to be against?

And we wonder why folk still stay messed up. Is it another way to keep the seats warm and the money coming in so that we won’t lose the level of lifestyle of the rich and famous of preachers? It’s the truth and we are still oblivious to the penalty that will come according to Ezekiel 34.

Then you watch Carlton Pearson, an apostate, inclusionist preacher with Harry Jackson on CNNCarlton Pearson used Hebrews 13:4 to justify same sex marriages.

As a pastor, you expect to voice the fact that Carlton Pearson raped and partially quoted that Scripture.

“Marriage is honorable among all and the bed undefiled…..” 

As like the time when the devil took Jesus upon a high pinnacle and said to Him If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written “He shall give His angels charge of you and in their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against the stone.”

You see, the devil will always misquote and partially Scripture to get you to walk in error. If he could somehow, get you to question or second guess what God said in His Word, the devil has succeeding in placing doubt, fear, and unbelief. Because if you ever get to trust the truth, the devil cannot and will not win!

The devil quoted Psalm 91:12 but the devil avoided verse 13.

Carlton Pearson avoided the rest of that Scripture because it mentioned the judgment of God that will happen to people that do not get married and commit adultery and fornication.

But the intent of the demonic influence was to indicate to the audience that same sex marriage is honorable and the bed of homosexuals is not defiled or soiled.

Another trick of the enemy. Know we got to turn this around. Challenge what they say as lies and stop being politically correct when the incorrect application of Scripture is before you. Do not fear their faces. Stand for a change and preach for the truth without missing a beat or flinching.

Two pastors with no backbone because there was no rebuttal of the misuse, misappropriated, misapplied use of Scripture and Carlton Pearson, under heavy demonic influence, lied to people.

As a pastor, the first thing that you ask is, “Where is the precedence for marriage established?”

Genesis 2:21-25.

God did not say that a man shall leave father and father and cleave to his male mate. God did not say that a man shall leave mother and mother and cleave to her wife. 

The Word is clear and we keep letting these guys get away with perverting the truth.

We have yet to see backboned pastors use the very thing that is the tool of our trade.

THE WORD OF GOD!

We must never let the reputation or past reputation of people deter us from preaching the truth and point out the spirit of error.

If you are reading this and you are sympathetic to the thing that God is against, there is no question that you are a compromised pastor or believer. No matter what, the truth must be preached and lived. If you cannot stand for the truth, you fell for the lie. And you are no longer competent to speak the Bible into the hearts of people the way God demands.

LGBT: The NC Vote: The Aftermath & LGBT Retaliation

After the voting took place in North Carolina, we see that it was by a landslide.

61% to 39%.

It wasn’t just a landslide.

It was a mandate. 

That meant that the message to vote “For” Amendment One was resoundingly effective. It meant that every thing the LGBT threw in to stop this important vote, including throwing in former President Clinton, had little to no weight.

It is clear that out of 50 states, 31 states made a stand against same sex marriage.

There is a Gallop poll that suggests that more than half of the American population supports gay marriages. But not an overwhelming majority.

Then, for good measure, prior to the NC vote, the Vice President let the cat out of the bag (Luke 12:2) and spoke for the administration (clearly a miscue), and said that the President supports same sex marriage while the President was still “evolving.”

Either Biden just can’t keep himself disciplined when necessary or perhaps he is driving the agenda and by shadow persons, he needed to push the President out into the open. Perhaps, the President was holding his cards but LGBT needed the President to finally take a stand so that LGBT can set in motion another attempt at manifesting a diabolical game changer.

What might it be?

Just like Japan in the Pacific, LGBT is assuming that with unchallenged domination, they could control the United States. However, just like the Navy that did island hopping in the South Pacific to push back Japan, the church is rising.

LGBT was state hopping to establish homosexuality as a national stronghold to push the church into darkness.

But this is not happening according to plan.

All across the United States, unheard of voices with no names that are not sympathetic to any sin have taken up the Blood Stained Banner. You see, unheard of preachers are not paid over or under the table to keep silent. That’s why we are effective. Silence the ones that have it all but you will not be able to silence the ones that have nothing to lose.

And don’t think that we can be bribed.

We will expose you in a heart beat.

Hallelujah!

Well, the President “evolved” and by compulsion, he supports same sex marriage.

Sadly.

Excuse me.

Pathetically, he even used his own daughters to try to put a “family” face on a sinful issue.

As a father, you stand for what is right without using female minors to bolster your position.

In the case of the President, based on Leviticus 18:22 and Romans chapter 1, he is dead wrong on the issue of homosexuality.

So two wrongs do not make a right.

A slew of genuine pastors have written open letters on the Internet and other venues to condemn the President’s decision, and demand that he repeal his decision. Many pastors, including myself, rebuked the President and call on the President to repent.

This God fearing nation has turned into an LGBT, Gay fearing nation.

Folks, we fear not their faces.

Remember, they are a minority with a very vocal attitude. Militancy is part of the homosexual make up and agenda. To defend sin, one must be as fierce as the devil, called satan.

This is not a joke. 

The devil is as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour (see 1 Peter 5:8).

The President is wrong on this issue and wrong for even mentioning his daughters in a divisive issue.

That’s because now the new morality is immorality and his daughters, if they fail, as they grow up to be women, to know the Lord, they will never know that homosexuality is a sin.

Except that they will stand against all godliness as their mother and father has done.

If these two girls emerge as children of God, they will know that their parents were hypocrites, or worse, apostates, by calling themselves Christians but was against the Jesus we see and know in the Bible.

And that, from the position of watching the Obama’s be leaders (President and First Lady) of the free world, in the White House.

That godliness is a thing of the past and Godlessness is the current path.

What gets me upset is that for the first time, a sitting president condoned same sex unions. It is a presidential endorsement of the sin of homosexuality. The sad thing is that no sitting White president in the past stepped in to endorse same sex unions and marriages.

They tried with former President Clinton beginning with the military. Hence, DADT. But the old guard generals and admirals, knowing that Clinton was a draft dodger and never served in the military, made the President toe the line.

Of course DADT was a compromise but it stuck until the law was repealed under President Obama.

It was interesting to have a former president attempt to come to the rescue of LGBT causes in NC after signing DOMA in 1996.

This is a contradiction. 

Former President Clinton’s own lack of moral discipline was not helpful to LGBT causes but for good measure, it is a reminder of the power of sin in the lives of powerful people. And, perhaps, NC remembered the Democratic primary. In particular South Carolina when Bill Clinton compared Obama to Jessie Jackson.

Finally, they get a Black man in the White House and we’ve never seen an aggressive push for LGBT and abortion rights like before.

In my heart of hearts, if this is what President Obama signed up for, it is a clear indication to me that somebody behind the scenes really didn’t care about the fact that maybe the first Black president would make great changes that would move the country forward.

Instead, we see shadows pushing for LGBT in conjunction with abortion causes.

This sets itself up for the fact that President Obama was in concert all along.

The President’s “evolving” position had to evolve. They were waiting until after the election because something more sinister is about to be launched.

From GodTv, we see the timeline history and spiritual upbringing from Obama’s 20 years in the United Church of Christ that endorsed homosexuality.

It doesn’t help that he calls himself a Christian. You can’t know Jesus and champion sin. You never see light in the same place as darkness. You never see right and wrong in the same place at the same time. You will never see God and the devil sitting on the same throne at the same time.

We see that immorality is gripping this nation unlike at any time before. At the same time, we see hatred for God rising to unprecedented levels. Believers are challenged for what they believe and they, the ones that call themselves children of God are running in fear and terror from LGBT and other anti Christian platforms.

I choose not to run from the battle before us because my God is greater than any god they throw up. Over history, the loud mouths that try to stand against God and His Word never had a chance.

In this issue of sin, and all sins for that matter, we fight.

We fight to keep our lives pure before God. We fight to kick sin out of our churches. We fight to keep sin out of our children that they will know that all sin is against the will of God. That any choice for sin is detrimental to their relationship with God. God is against the works of darkness in any form and we will never back down.

For great and mighty is our God!

It appeared that from the time Obama campaigned for the presidency that behind the scenes a power play to control the White House was set in motion.

Mind you, LGBT is a minority-minority, not a majority.

But God knows how to keep it all in check.

The issue of same sex marriage is about legitimizing sin and North Carolina has knocked this one out of the park by the grace of God.

Retaliatory efforts of LGBT were already planned in the event of a loss.

However, they weren’t really expecting to get spanked this hard and that bad. It goes to show you that there are many born again believers that took the Word of God seriously and took a stand against the winds of sin.

Just a little side note for you “so called” preachers.

If you were involved in the jostling before the vote and concluded to vote “Against” Amendment One, you missed a golden opportunity to earn “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

Perhaps you weren’t a servant at all. Just a rogue preacher waiting to hatch your diabolical plans.

The devil is a liar and you are a liar, masquerading as a preacher. False pretense and full of evil.

You were against God and you are an enemy of the cross of Christ.

A genuine preacher cannot and never will be found to be sympathetic for sin. God condemned sin in the flesh of Jesus. Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

By supporting LGBT and all other agendas connected, you are in contempt of God, His Holy Word, and the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus died for our sins. Otherwise, if God isn’t against sin, Jesus died for nothing.

Either you are an apostate or you are a backslidden preacher that got caught up in the moment and decided to look at it from your position of harboring Secret Sexual Sins in your life.

One “so called” preacher in particular named, Dr. William J. Barber, pastor of Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro, NC, and president of the NAACP in NC is clearly sympathetic to sin.

There is no Greenleaf in that church according to Psalm 1. Their leaf never had a chance.

Only those that are sympathetic to sin are usually involved in sins of their own.

There is repentance for the backslidden. There is repentance for sinners. But for those that knowingly turn their backs on God and His Word and then preach LGBT laced themes, you are an apostate for which, like Esau, there is no place for repentance.

And you are “doomed!”

Your fate is sealed based on the Word of God.

The aftermath is already underway. Counter agendas is well underway. We know that darkness cannot prevail over light. Stand firm, steadfast in the faith of Jesus Christ. NO weapon formed against us will prosper.

Whatever tongue that rises up against us we shall condemn.

Saints, it time to be all that we can be for God.

No apologies, no fears, no turning back. You were born for such a time as this to make a difference in the earth. Your birth and what you went through up till the time you were born again happened. Now, more than ever, God is using you in this dispensation of time to fulfill His plans and purposes. You were born right on time to make a difference for Jesus. Do not walk away!

This is God’s time. He will be vindicated and our victory in Jesus, is at hand.

Gay Marriage (Part Three): Here Comes The True Bride

Weddings is not about the groom. It’s all about the Bride. What is the bride wearing? She looks beautiful. No one really pays that much attention to the groom except when the vows are exchanged when he pledges his loyalty, faithfulness or fidelity, honor, commitment, and most of all, his love to his bride.

One of the most misunderstood and less read books of the Bible is the Song of Solomon.

When the scholars were compiling canon Scripture, some of them had a difficult time with understanding the purpose of the book because of it’s somewhat detailed exposure of a man’s true love for a woman.

Even now, people rarely read it because you do not expect to blush from reading about a story of true love, fidelity, and sensual desire, and discussions of sexual body parts in the Bible.

Not in the Bible?

The scholars (44 of them) saw that the same connotations were similar to the way the Lord loves His church. But it underscores the fact that God created male and female to be married and enjoy sex in an unadulterated, undefiled way, absent of perversion that becomes an abomination to God.

Genesis 2:25 says that both Adam and Eve were naked and they were not ashamed.

It was only when sin came about that shame was introduced. So much so that the exposure of their bodies demanded that they cover up, hence, the reason why we wear clothes to this very day.

When the difference between right a wrong is fully realized, that’s when the decisions we make will take us down paths of righteousness or unrighteousness.

Thank God that the Lord, in the Song of Solomon emphatically underscored His original intent of courtship, love, marriage, and “straight” sex by placing the Song of Solomon in the Bible. You will never see a book in the Bible as vivid about courtship, discipline in courtship, strength and beauty, love and marriage.

That’s where porn and erotica novels come up short.

Porn and erotic novels misunderstand true love.

Don’t misunderstand me because there are some (very few) writers that capture the true essence of romance but to place it in porn and erotica, the world is not that interested. The sex act is more interesting according to the world.

For the billions of men (in 24 hours, 2.1 billion) that do watch porn, they hate the story lines. I know because when I was trapped in the sin of porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation, I cared less about the story line.

Just get to the sex. 

Typical males.

Women want to be involved in the things that lead to the sex for connection purposes. The sex is engaging but not as intriguing as the communication that leads to connection, that leads to sex. In some cases, most women (1 in 6 women) that do watch porn agree that the story lines are very corny.

I am not condoning porn.

I’ve been free of that sin since November 2008 and I’m not going back because of the “Seamless Fabric” connections to human trafficking, organized and disorganized crime, drugs, kidnapping, adult rape, child rape and molestation, the final frontier-child porn (over 100,000 child porn sites and rising), sinful threesomes, that include lesbianism and homosexuality, etc.

The Song of Solomon is a book suited for women but men could learn the etiquette of relationships, communication, dating, courtship, discipline, and love that must remain the center piece of a marital relationship after a couple becomes husband and wife.

And you will never see adultery, fornication, bisexuality, homosexuals and lesbians engaged in perverted sex in Song of Solomon either.

Solomon loved many women and it became the epitaph of his reign as the 3rd king of Israel.

In the end, Solomon failed God miserably but God still used Solomon’s poetic wisdom (like his father, in psalmist fashion) to let man know that your natural instincts is to admire, correctly court, and marry a woman, not a man. At the same time, we see the woman’s natural instinctive desire for a real man. These are natural instincts placed in male and female by God.

The fall into sin opened the door for these instincts to be perverted.

Never will you see in the Song of Solomon such perversion that leads to abomination.

With this being said. In part two, I used a Scripture in Ephesians 5:26-27 that depicts the current state of the church.

Paul begins to describe the comparison between the relationship between the husband and wife as that of Christ and the church. Then in verse 26, Paul goes spiritual. The Lord is the Head of the church and He loves the church that He shed His sinless blood for.

Notice what Jesus does. He sanctifies and cleanses her (the church), how? “…with the washing of water by the word.”

If the church wasn’t dirty, there would be no need for washing.

There is no question that the current condition of the church is filthy.

As a note, do not let the word “might” throw you off.

In the Greek, “sanctify” is the word you want to concentrate on.

You best to believe that He will sanctify and cleanse His church. However, people in the church must want to be sanctified and cleansed. For this to happen, a believer must come to the place to receive the cleansing power found only in the correct application of the Word of God.

If a believer doesn’t want to be cleansed then they remain dirty. And we all know that stained garments are not allowed in heaven. Sin stains the garment. To get the stain out, you need the cleansing power of the Word of God.

Here’s how it’s done. Notice these Scriptures.

Psalm 119:9-11 says,

“How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.”

2 Corinthians 7:1 says,

“Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

2 Timothy 2:19-22 says,

“Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”

1 John 1:9 says,

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

(UNDERLINE ARE MINE)

The other cleansing “agent,” if you will, is the blood of Jesus.

Hebrews 9:14 says,

“…how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

So if you are not cleansed, you cannot serve the living God.

The key to true cleansing is that after you have been cleansed, you no longer have a need for sin.

This is accomplished in Proverbs 28:13 that says,

“He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.

You may be confessing that you’ve sinned, but when you sin again, you haven’t walked away from sin forever. You see, confessing sin is not for the purpose of returning to sin again. Confessing that you’ve sinned is the first step. The next step is to walk away from that sin forever.

True cleansing is evidenced in the fact that you no longer are held under the power of sin. Jesus freed us from the authority of the law of sin and death. We no longer are under the authority of sin and death because that law was superseded by the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus (see Romans 8:1-2).

So when we are in Christ we now have power to walk away from that which no longer has power over our lives.

The Hebrew Word for “forsake” is “azab” and it means to “…loosen- relinquish. 

Brown’s Driver-Brigg’s Hebrew Lexicon says, “to depart, leave behind, to let alone, abandon.”

That’s the true essence of sanctification and cleansing; “to depart, leave behind, to let alone, abandon” sin.

So the “washing of water by the word” is the preparation necessary so Jesus could come again and receive us to Himself (see John 14:1-3) and to “present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.”

Now fast forward to the book of Revelation chapter 21.

John, the apostle of the Lamb saw, by the Spirit of God, the holy city called New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, “…prepared as a bride adorn for her husband…”

Go further down into verse 9 and you will find these words…

“Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”

As a note, the harmony of the Scriptures is powerful.

Take the time to compare Revelation 22:12-13 and Ezekiel 48:30-35.

When the wicked are judged and are cast into the lake of fire, the wedding ceremony will take place.

These powerful symbols in the 21 chapter of the book of Revelation indicates that only the true Bride of Christ will participate in the ceremony.

The goal of perversion and abomination is to attempt to undo or at the very least pervert God’s symbol of marriage because marriage represents the final act of God bringing the church to Himself.

Many homosexuals and lesbians think that this is not the case and that this doesn’t amount to anything. That all they want is just to be left alone to be married and be recognized as a legitimate “couple.”

But little do they realize that devil is using their preference for the sin of homosexuality and lesbianism to drag them to the pit of eternal separation from the presence of the Lord after they die.

What difference does it make?

It makes a big difference when you have to spend eternity away from God.

This gay marriage thing is more than just manifesting perversion on the earth.

It is an attempt to pervert the church so that it never becomes what God destined it to be.

A clean, holy, righteous church.

No earthly bride will wear a soiled gown. All brides look to be decked out.

Clean, Pure, White.

The true church must be so.

That’s why the devil fights the church so much. That’s why gay rights proponents fight so much because in sin there can be no purity. They are trying so desperately to clean sin up so that they look like the Bride of Christ but they can’t unless they are cleansed from sin by the blood of the Lamb.

They cannot enter into heaven to bum-rush heaven. Knowing that they can’t, they are trying to bogart marriage, hijack marriage, take marriage from the church because they want to legitimize homosexual sin. They want to be a part of the party. They want to be accepted. They want a seat at the table with a soiled gown.

And LGBTQ and all sympathetic people involved in the sin of adultery, fornication (porn), bisexuality, homosexuality, and lesbianism will never be cleansed on it’s own unless they Come Clean by coming out of that which God declared as an abomination.

They must be born again according to John 3:3. Otherwise, Jesus will declare to them that He never knew them (see Matthew 7:21-25).

Revelation 21:8 says,

“But the cowardly, unbeliever, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death,”

Unless they forsake homosexuality and lesbianism which is perversion that leads to abomination.

That’s why homosexuals and lesbians want marriage rights.

It is their own sinful version of the bride.

Here comes the soiled bride, not dressed in white.

Except that there is no husband to accept a bride soiled, unclean, and looking disheveled in sin.

Homosexuals and lesbians want to have sin while dressed in white.

When people willfully remain in opposition to the will of God and the truth is told, they feel hated, rejected, and feel worthless and hopeless but it doesn’t have to be this way. By your own choice, you’ve accepted sin, but by your choice, before you die, you can choose life in Christ.

You can choose freedom, and deliverance. God is not mad at you. God is not angry at you. God is angry that you have accepted the lie as the truth and He is doing everything in His power to help you understand the truth. If you love sin and try to bring sin in, it cannot happen.

That’s where you will either part ways or give up the life of sin.

It’s all up to you.

Therefore, marriage between one man and one woman is a symbol of Christ and the church, and Scripturally represents the Bride of Christ’s triumphant moment where the Lamb comes and receives her.

From Genesis 2:21-25 to Ephesians 5:25-33 to Revelation 21.
