The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 12:25-26 (NKJV Strong’s) “…Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?”
The reason why I’m using this text is because in many of our houses of worship, sexual immorality is ever present. And we shouldn’t fool ourselves. When the catholics have been hit with sexual immorality lawsuits, which threatens, not only their existence, but their claim to morality, it’s clear that you have to look at the root of their organization.
The whole purpose of the protestant movement was to destroy the strangle hold of the monopoly of Biblical doctrine.
Martin Luther, John Wycliff, and William Tyndale, among so many other courageous persons, were responsible for the systematical dissolution of the rule of catholicism on the lives of people.
The best way to accomplish this was to make a duly English translated copy of the Bible from Hebrew and Greek, available to each person as opposed to depending upon a “priest” to give the “homily.”
God be praised.
For many of our readers, we’re aware that catholics read our blogs, and may object. You’re entitled to object, but do some due diligence and do a side by side comparison of doctrines.
Many will argue that they’re just as Christian as any other Christian denomination. Just do a simple doctrinal comparison between catholicism and other protestant denominations and you will see a conclusively stark contrast.
My point is that it’s not just a “catholic thing.”
In ALMOST every denomination and non denominations, there’s elements of QUESTIONABLE man made doctrines intertwined in the truth of the Scriptures.
Usually, it’s a dead giveaway that deception is the intent.
Even worse, is that we turn a blind eye to certain practices occurring in our houses of worship that we know is against true Biblical teaching.
And in many policy protocols, denominational teaching should absolutely mirror Biblical teaching, but in practice, some will either come up with a form of godliness in their policies, or make crude exceptions.
Such is the case here.
In catholic schools, it’s certain that SOME OF the people they employ are people that practice lawlessness in violation of true Biblical teachings. We generally turn a blind eye to avoid lawsuits that would follow should organizations come to their senses.
Even in Black Baptist churches, and other places where Blacks worship, pastors, deacons, worship leaders, music ministers, and others engage in Secret Sexual Sins while performing their duties.
In particular, hiring homosexual music ministers, choir masters, and organists.
For decades, we’ve ignored holiness in all that we do just to have “gifted,” talented singers, musicians, choir masters, and organists.
But to have them perform in houses of worship, we intentionally disobey the holy commandment of the Lord.
We dare disrespect the Lord than to disrespect the practitioners of all vile sexual sins.
We dare honor man more than we ought to honor God.
We make exceptions, sweep their sins under a carpet instead of commanding them to repent, and get their sins washed away forever by the blood, demanding that they live holy lives in obedience to the Scriptures.
Because employment doesn’t last forever.
But dying in your sins is forever.
While the firing of a catholic teacher that practices the vile sin of homosexuality is truly commendable, if a tree is rotten at the core, bad fruit will continue to manifest.
It’s incumbent upon all that call on the name of the Lord to “…depart from iniquity…”
We can’t have iniquity in the house of worship and righteousness present at the same time. Just like you never see the dominance of the moon dominate the dominance of the sun.
The Bible says that the moon rules the night in the book of Genesis, but even the moon is dependent upon the sun because the moon reflects the dominate light of the sun. The moon is powerless to emit any light of its own.
Light is never dominated by darkness.
Such much be the same with our houses of worship.
Righteousness cannot live with unrighteousness (see 2 Corinthians 6:14-18).
We know that a lawsuit may follow, but for now, it’s an example to all that name the name of Christ.
It’s time to put out of our houses of worship those that refuse to repent, and put out those that insist on the practice of lawlessness while pretending to be a practitioner of righteousness. It’s not to say that this catholic teacher that practices the vile sin of homosexuality was pretending, but sadly, we know of a lot of “gay christians.”
You can’t be gay and be a Christian.
You’re one or the other. Not both. Just like you can’t be an adulterer Christian. A thief Christian. A lying Christian. A fornicating Christian, etcetera.
Now we don’t know if this catholic teacher was offered a chance to repent and conform to their non tolerance of homosexual policy.
But as far as protestant denominations are concerned, the heart of the Father is to offer repentance from dead works, and faith towards the Lord. If people refuse to repent, they could no longer openly, or covertly practice sin and be employed in a house of worship.
It’s incumbent upon church employers to ensure that a non tolerant of practicing sexual lawlessness policy is articulated and maintained. And that a very deliberate vetting of prospectus employees take place.
Some will argue that it’s discriminatory.
The Bible tells us that a “little leaven leavens the whole lump.”
Just like when the acting defense secretary had to resign because years ago, he was involved in a violent domestic dispute.
Just like Judge Kavanaugh.
Vetting is very important and the houses of worship need to do the same.

A NEW STD IS AMONG US
MG it’s called.
Actually, according to the report, the disease has been around since the 1980’s and is curable. It’s one of the “pests” of sex that people wish would not happen.
Whenever a report on STDs comes out, it it clear that more people are infected and that they anticipate that more infections will be reported.
The one thing that I read is that they’ve tested 200 teens that were not sexually active and found that they all tested NEGATIVE for the disease.
At the end of the report, they stressed condoms.
Wait a minute……
Did anyone catch this?
If you are not sexually active, it means that you have no need for condoms, which proves one thing.
Psalm 107:17 says “Fools! Because of their transgressions and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.”
You may be insulted but according to Psalm 107:17, people are still acting like a fool. According to the Lord God in Genesis chapter 2, sex is reserved for married people, one man and one woman. Sexually transmitted diseases are designed to reinforce what God ordained.
When there is sex outside of this God ordained institution it carries a carries a consequential judgment. A penalty.
Should people die in their sins, Revelation 21:8 tells us that the “sexually immoral” will be cast into the lake which burns with fire and brimstone forever.
Remember. God created us in His image. His highest attribute is “HOLY.”
Sin is opposite of righteousness, holiness, and purity.
Since God created us, He makes the rules. When man violates His rules, there is a moral penalty applied.
Just like when we are driving and the cop or trooper pulls us over for speeding or other traffic violations, we are assessed a penalty.
Just like when we commit a crime, we are arrested, tried in court, and should we be found guilty, we do time in prison.
Did you just see the difference?
Illegal sex is like a traffic violation and the STD was the penalty.
The crime of an unrepentant life demands eternal prison time.
Many will say that this is not fair, that we should be able to do as we please.
Revelation 4:11 “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
God placed within this life all of the benefits of life provide that we follow what He said. When we do something apart from what He said, God demands justice. Remember, He is holy, righteous, full of compassion, love, mercy, and truth.
If God didn’t love us, He would never give us a chance.
In truth, and because He is holy and just, the Lord God judges us.
Without this eternal righteous standard, there wouldn’t be an incentive to repent, receive salvation, and obey His Word to live holy. The fact that the Lord gives us a chance to repent tells us that this is MORE THAN FAIR.
Especially in light of the fact that the Father demonstrated His love for us by sending His Son to die for our sins to completely pay our debt.
Notice Romans 5:8-9. “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.”
Many people have failed. This author included, but because of His mercy and compassion, He gives us all another chance, not a second chance because every one of us blew away that second chance.
We accept by grace through faith the gift of salvation to avoid the wrath of God. The STD is not the wrath of God. Should you die without Christ, hell, and then the lake which burns with fire and brimstone is the eternal wrath of God.
Believe me when I tell you, the tribulation period is also the wrath of God, poured out on the earth, but it pales in comparison to the eternal wrath of God for which there will be no relief.
Remember. God created us and He can do justly as He wishes.
Perhaps you are reading this and wonder if the Lord would forgive you for continuously blowing it. As the late David Wilkerson said, “sin and confess, sin and confess.”
That’s a merry go round that we need to stop. The constant cycle of guilt and remorse must come to a halt. God knows what’s best for us.
If we want sex, we must get married first.
Many want the benefits and gifts of marriage without actually getting married. That’s not how it works and you know it. Sex outside of marriage is destructive. It’s dangerous. It carries more woe for man and woman than imagined. Worse of all, it keeps you in bondage to sin as it’s slave.
Ask one slave if he or she ever loved being a slave.
They will truthfully answer that they wished that they were free.
Jesus can make you free indeed after you come to the knowledge of the truth.
Do you want to be free?
It’s up to you. The Lord Jesus suffered the penalty for every man and was imprisoned in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights to appease the just and righteous demands of the Holy and Righteous God.
All the hard work was done by Jesus to free you. You get to do the easy part.
Repent and abstain for the rest of your life until you get married.
Sadly, a lot of people will not listen. The other sad thing is that people, including me, thought that when we would get married that all of the sexual triggers, desires, urges and impulses would be satisfied.
To be able to have sex all of the time is a fantasy. We are still permitted to have sex with our married opposite sexed partner, but there’s a lot of dynamics that must be factored.
Timing and making time for sex. Work. Children. Emotion state of each other. Financial well being, and other issues makes it very challenging to have sex. This is another reason why many married people engage in the extracurricular activity of masturbation.
You could be in the heat of the moment but your partner is sick, not at home, went to bed early, emotionally detached from you because of personal issues, and a host of other reasons.
Even masturbation is out of bounds because God designed sex to be shared between two married persons of the opposite sex. Which means the fruit of the Spirit called “self control” must be employed until you can come together to have sex.
So the rule still exists and there is nothing that you or anyone else could do about it. Congress, the president, and SCOTUS can’t legislate against God’s ordinance to draft and pass a law to stop STD’s from occurring.
The lie of “safe sex” will not help.
Safe sex is a myth. The only safe sex is married, one male, one female for life, or abstinence. Condoms circumvent the Word of God and you know it. This is called “suppress the truth in unrighteousness.”
In other words, they hold down the truth so that it would not try to convict them. But when the truth is released, man is powerless to stop the convicting power of the Holy Spirit in the Word of God.
And even if you use a condom, there is always the possibility of a failure, leakage, or other common missteps. Because of the desire for full satisfaction, condom-less unlawful sex.
Sex is for married couples of the opposite sex.
Sexual immorality carries a consequential penalty and an eternal penalty should people remain unrepentant. God offers forgiveness and healing when we repent and place our full faith and trust in the salvation provided through the sacrificial life, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
Anyway, you can read the article here about MG.
The world has had its way with shoving the sin of homosexuality down the throats of believers and unbelievers.
All across the world, we are hearing of tremendous stories of believers doing what we were supposed to do, no matter what laws they pass.
As I have said, if the sin of homosexuality had any merits of its own, there would be no need to force the issue.
The church is PUSHing them back and we do not need to make any laws to make it happen.
Pray Until Something Happens.
Preach Until Sinners Hear.
Persevere Until Satan Hurts.
The momentum is picking up.
Here is a very powerful Scripture that gives us the basis for this PUSH.
“According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay,
Fury to His adversaries,
Recompense to His enemies;
The coastlands He will fully repay.
“So shall they fear
The name of the Lord from the west,
And His glory from the rising of the sun;
When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.
“The Redeemer will come to Zion,
And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,”
Says the Lord.”
Listen to how the Amplified Bible puts it in verse 19.
“So [as the result of the Messiah’s intervention] they shall [reverently] fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him and put him to flight [for He will come like a rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives].”
When homosexuality comes, the Lord Jesus will intervene and put them to flight.
Psalm 2 is still in its prophetic setting but the essence of this Psalm gives us the backdrop as to why the elite of the sin of homosexuality is pushing against the Lord. Notice verses 1 through 5.
“Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
“Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:”
Even after the SCOTUS rules on same sex marriage in either direction, the elite of homosexuality will never cease to plot against the Lord God and against His Anointed One, or the Lord Jesus.
They will always seek to break Their (The Father and The Son’s) bonds in pieces and cast Their cords from sinners.
Meaning that they do not want to be bound by righteousness. As Paul said, when we were bound in sin we were freed from righteousness.
This is the goal of the elite of the sin of homosexuality.
But the Lord will hold them in derision, He shall speak to them in His wrath or anger, and distress them in His deep displeasure.
No matter what gains they get, the Lord will push them back.
Make no mistake about it.
It may not look that way for many parts of the world, in particular, the United States but in other places, the Body of Christ is taking a stand.
Because the elite of the sin of homosexuality is purporting an agenda to go after children.
In the Italian country, parents are taking a stand and they are pushing the forces of darkness back.
The momentum must be maintained so we do not lose ground.
What ground we take, the enemy will seek to take it back.
We must not let this happen.
Here in America, we need to take a page out of their book and make a concerted effort to take a stand against homosexuality. They are after our children and we are the child’s only defense in Jesus.
The article of Italy pushing the homosexual agenda back could be read here.
We are aware of California’s gender neutral policy for kids in school.
What’s disturbingly dumbfounded is that the federal government is threatening the schools to make gender neutral bathrooms for transgender children or lose federal funding for school meals and such.
Well, this is no different than the book of Daniel chapter three when Nebuchadnezzar set up an image. When the music played, everyone must bow down to it. Well the three friends of Daniel refused and we all know the end of that story.
As I have said before, it is better to be in man’s temporary fire in obedience to God and His Word than to be in God’s eternal hell fire for disobeying Him.
Fast forward into the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, chapter 13.
No one was able to buy or sell without the mark of the beast.
Daniel had a vision of the end times and observed something that today is a precursor to those events during the tribulation period.
Daniel 7:25 says, “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”
What we are seeing is that government is changing the times and laws. But be careful, this is not the tribulation period that we are in now. But what we are seeing is a precursor of what is to come.
There was a time where transgender people were in the closet. Now in this time, they are out. There was a time where practicing homosexuals were in the closet. There was a time where sodomy was a crime. Now in this time, they are out and sodomy isn’t a crime anymore. There was a time when gender change was not possible. Now in this time, they are out. There was a time when abortion wasn’t a law but fornicating pregnant women were subjected to the hanger in the back alley. Now in this time, they have a law protecting the murder of innocent children.
Interesting to note that the World Trade Center was opened on April 4, 1973. In the same year, abortion became man made legal. It’s also interesting that the Yom Kippur/Ramadan war, also known as the Arab/Israeli war of 1973 took place that same year.
Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 says
“That which has been is what will be,
That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which it may be said,
“See, this is new”?
It has already been in ancient times before us.”
Isaiah 46:9 says,
“Remember the former things of old,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure,”
Sin is not God’s plan, nor is it His pleasure. What is in God’s plan is man’s redemption from sin. For He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to die for the sin of the whole world.
But God knew from the beginning man’s insistence and persistence for sin.
The people that is making these laws and policies are desperately recruiting children at a very young impressionable age to fill the ranks of those that have died or abandoned the sin of homosexuality. Since homosexuals are incapable of reproducing or copulating, this is one of a few ways that they are preparing the next generation to assume the ranks of the perverted.
Their policies have to have teeth because the sin of homosexuality cannot stand on its own merits. Because sin is without merit. Once again, the federal government is imposing or forcing people to comply with the policy of fostering perversion against the will of righteous people.
Governmental overreaching is now the policy because in order to force government’s will, it must reach beyond the common sense of the constitution of the United States.
It’s ultimate goal is to strike so much fear and terror in people that if it is left unchecked, it will eventually spill into the church and force believers to comply with evil systems and standards that undoubtedly defy the Lord.
Babylon fell and Nebuchadnezzar died, but Israel is still here.
Hence, when a nation insists on defying the Lord, the Bible will still be here and believers in the Lord will still be here as long as the Lord Jesus tarry.
More importantly, the Lord that made everything will still be here and all that defied God perished and is awaiting their court date before the Lord at the Great White Throne Judgment.
Parents all across the nation are alarmed.
Government can’t balance a budget with 18 trillion dollars in debt, but they some how seem to find time to meddle in the affairs of normal families to lure children into perversion.
This is a clear indication of the demonic perilous direction this nation is headed. Straight down the broad way that leads to destruction. In the articles below, the pastors are sounding the alarm but will the church respond?
It’s not just the Obama administration but the puppet masters behind the presidency.
We cannot assume that this is just one man orchestrating America’s turn from its Judeo/Christian foundation.
Lobbyist, and the elite money masters are behind the perversion that is evident in America. They are driven by the “god of this world” that is the source of all evil. They are behind the insuring that the next perverted generation toe the line in the sin of homosexuality.
Transgenderism is just another form of homosexuality. The surgical gender changes is the pinnacle of homosexuality.
Our little, innocent children is now in the cross hairs.
If you are a parent, you had better be born again and know the Lord and His Word.
No parent want their child traumatized because an opposite sex comes into the bathroom with them.
This is perversion and they know it. As a teacher, if you are a parent, would you want Johnny to go to the same girls bathroom with Sally just because Johnny feels like a girl today? What if Johnny was exposed to porn and saw a rape? Chances are Johnny may act out what he saw and rape Sally.
They do not have to have experienced puberty.
All they need is an image and an opportunity.
Why is this alarming to the true church?
Perhaps the last place where gender specific bathrooms are, will be the house of worship.
If we know the devil and his children very well, they will not stop at just enforcing gender neutral bathrooms in public schools and places. Like at work, in the movie theaters, ball parks, sports arenas, restaurants, fast food joints, museums, opera houses, broadway shows, and other venues.
They will come for the church to enforce their hideous, vile, perverted regulation in violation of the First Amendment.
My wife received an email from the International House Of Prayer concerning oral arguments that will be held before the SCOTUS. We’ve should have been praying about this months ago. However, we cannot afford to wait until April 28 when these arguments will take place.
If you are a detractor, disregard this blog. If you are against prayer, disregard this blog. If you are an opponent, disregard this blog. If you have given up on this nation, disregard this blog. If you have said, “What’s the use?, and “What good will it do?,” disregard this blog.
But if you are serious about making a stand today, not next week, fall on your face before God and pray like you’ve never prayed before.
When it is said and done, will you stand before Jesus to answer to Him for not seeking His face and turning from your wicked ways?
LGBT has had it’s way for a long time.
But the Lord could be down a gazilion points with 0.01 left on the clock and still run the devil out the gym.
Andrew Murray said in a book on Prayer that “Prayer is power with God.”
Like never before, we need to exercise this power to see God do a mighty work in the earth.
The Lord doesn’t need but one person that will decide to give themselves to prayer and fasting to seek God.
Will you be that one vessel?
2 Chronicles 16:9 says, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
Because you are reading this blog, the Lord has found you. Will you humble yourself and pray, and seek His face, and turn from your wicked ways (prayerlessness)?
Listen to what Samuel said in 1 Samuel 12:23-25.
“Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and the right way. Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. But if you still do wickedly, you shall be swept away, both you and your king.”
If we fail to pray, we sin a great sin. If we insist on doing wickedly, we will be swept away………the church and political leadership (all three branches of this government).
Together, we can get the job done.
Will you join us?
Here is a good prayer to daily pray for this urgent situation.
PRAYER FOR SUPREME COURT
Father, in the name of Jesus, we pray for the Supreme Court of his nation. The docket that is before this court is about the constitutionality of the sin of homosexuality. We, as Your people, beseech You to move into the courtroom and direct their minds not to establish this vile sin to prevail in this nation.
Let the proponents of homosexuality be disappointed, and set in derision. Let them be confounded and be without the wisdom that is from underneath.
Let them recognize the righteous judgments of the Lord and repent of this wickedness.
This nation is in the balance.
But You have seen this from the beginning, and this did not catch You off guard.
Therefore, the outcome is well known to You.
We have turned from You and Your Word, we have sinned by not being diligent on our watch. We have sinned by not holding ourselves accountable to Your Word. Forgive us as You have said in Your holy Word. But we have returned to You and stand on Your righteous Word as the righteousness of God in Christ.
We have removed the leaven of sin from our lives and we stand as Your children, holy, sanctified, and consecrated.
Quote 2 Chronicles 7:14
Now look upon this land and the hearts of men.
Let not the unrighteous prevail in this hour.
Let not the sin of homosexuality prevail in this land.
Let not the proponents who devise wickedness prevail.
Let not the pressure of the hour push us to live in fear and terror.
As your Word says, Lord.
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” Proverbs 14:24
“Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you;
And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.
For the Lord is a God of justice;
Blessed are all those who wait for Him.” Isaiah 30:18
“But let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.” Amos 5:24
Let Your name and Your Word prevail, and be glorified and honored!
In Jesus’ name! Amen!!!!!
Subject: 100,000 pastors to join in prayer on Tuesday, April 28, as the Supreme Court hears a historic case on homosexual marriage
Join in prayer for America. | View email in a browser. TWEET LIKE To our friends and partners,On Tuesday April 28, 2015, the Supreme Court will hear arguments on whether the Constitution allows homosexual couples the right to marry regardless of what individual states decide.
Over 100,000 pastors and churches are standing together in prayer on Tuesday, April 28, to ask the Lord to intervene with mercy on our nation.
Read some of what David Brody wrote describing what will happen on April 28 (and the Sunday before), and read David Lane’s email to 100,000 pastors.
Many church and ministry networks are partnering together to get the word out about this.
Please forward this email to your pastor or to leaders of networks and ask them to get the word out about this historic decision that will be made on April 28 in the USA.

David Brody, CBN News Chief Political Correspondent, wrote:
The influential Christian political operative David Lane sent an email newsletter to more than 100,000 evangelical pastors encouraging them to hold prayer services on April 28 when the Supreme Court hears the crucial same-sex marriage case . . .The Supreme Court will decide whether the Constitution allows homosexual couples the right to marry no matter where they reside or whether states have the right to say marriage is only between a man and a woman.
David Lane also is calling on these pastors to preach on the topic of biblical marriage on the Sunday before the big Supreme Court case.
In another blog, Brody wrote:
GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz is sending a letter to tens of thousands of pastors asking them to stand with God and pray during the two-hour time frame on April 28:
“On Tuesday, April 28, the United States Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in favor of ‘same-sex marriage.’ How will the American church respond?
How can the church rise to the occasion in this situation? … I urge you to consider the following—
1. Preach about biblical marriage on Sunday, April 26.
2. Lead prayer services on Tuesday, April 28.
Will we be on the right side of history, the side occupied by the Author of history? Will we discard an institution, ordained by God, which has brought so much stability and happiness to the human family? … Rightly or wrongly, the Supreme Court will take a stand on marriage this summer. Let’s take ours now.
God bless America,
Senator Ted Cruz”
See David Lane’s email to 100,000 pastors:
It is time for You to act, O Lord,
For they have regarded Your law as void.
Psalm 119:126Pastor,It is time for You to act. We are asking the 100K American Renewal = Project pastors for 2 actions:
1) Preach on Biblical Marriage on Sunday April 26, 2015.
The Apostle Paul calls marriage a “profound mystery.” A man and woman becoming one flesh through marriage is more than a civil contract, it represents “Christ and the Church” (Ephesians 5:22–6:9; Colossians 3:18–4:1).
2) Lead Prayer Services on Tuesday, April 28th, 11:30 AM–1:30 PM in their sanctuaries.
This two-hour window will focus on prayer. We intend to cry for mercy for what we, believers, have allowed to happen to our nation, that was established “For the Glory of God and the advancements of the Christian faith.” (The Mayflower Compact).
The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments on same-sex marriage on Tuesday, April 28th. Justice Ginsberg and Justice Kagan even now have performed homosexual marriage ceremonies. Their integrity should insist that they recuse themselves for lack of impartiality; but they are the law. Such secularists lack virtue.
America has become drugged by the cup of Secularism — a false and wicked religion — articulated in the Humanist Manifesto, a creed that denied supernatural relevation, and so the revelation of God in Jesus Christ. The ‘religion’—as it was called in the Humanist Manifesto (1933)—was imposed by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1963, an 8-1 decision, in Abington School District v. Schempp. Lone dissenting Justice Potter Stewart prophesied, “…[the decision to remove the Bible from public schools] led not to true neutrality with respect to religion, but to the establishment of a religion of secularism.”
That proud and tragic decision has given birth to a complete moral breakdown in America, those doing this to our country must be held accountable. The wise Solomon says, “Where there is no revelation the people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction” (Proverbs 29:10). America’s Founders laid the foundation on biblical virtue, His Word. Udo W. Middleman, president of the Francis A. Schaeffer Foundation says, “He has told us in his Word how we should live and order our lives, set our priorities, and what sense to make of being human.” A Christian nation once, America is now ruled by an oligarchy, a majority of nine, representing, “Vice stalking in virtue’s garb.”
God defines sin, not the U.S. Supreme Court. Having removed the fixed point in order to judge in 1963, the esteemed Justices, in hubris, decided to challenge God’s rule, God’s throne, and God’s rightful Honor. America is on the verge of learning something that can be learned in no other way—rebellion against God brings consequences. There is no safety in distance from God.
What is the antidote, the counteracting agent, to the foisting of homosexual marriage on a once Christian nation? “In the day of my trouble I will call upon you, for You will answer me.” (Psalm 86:7)
“Our experience confirms us in the belief that Jehovah the living God really does aid those who call upon him, and therefore we pray and mean to pray, not because we are so fascinated by prayer that for its own sake we would continue in it if it proved to be mere folly and superstition, as vain philosophers assert; but because we really, indeed, and of a truth, find it to be a practical and effectual means of obtaining help from God in the hour of need. There can be no reason for praying if there be no expectation of the Lord’s answering. ” Charles H. Spurgeon
Why are not the churches of America filled with prayer services, led by senior pastors, asking God for mercy of what we have allowed to a once Christian nation? Who will, by faith, help America’s pastors track down the weapons of warfare? Prayer and tears are the Christians weapons of war, very little cannonading and bombardment appears to be occurring in America’s sanctuaries today.
– REQUEST –
We are asking the 100K American Renewal Project pastors to lead prayer services on Tuesday, April 28th, 11:30AM–1:30PM, in your sanctuaries. This two-hour window is not sermonizing, but prayer, led by God’s shepherds; Jehovah is not interested in numbers, if it’s you and two others, then God will be honored. We intend to cry for mercy for what we, believers, have allowed to happen to our nation established by our Founders on a spiritual mission, “For the Glory of God and the advancements of the Christian faith.” (The Mayflower Compact)
We need Gideons to stand, and lead prayer services, Tuesday, April 28th, 11:30AM–1:30PM. For those of the flock who cannot attend the prayer service led by the shepherd, please ask that they stop where they are and pray; we need a miracle.

My friend, Brother Kevin Boudreau, shared a link about former mayor Michael Bloomberg. I thank Kevin for bringing this to my attention.
Many people believe that their good works will get them into heaven.
Not so fast.
A couple of years ago, the mayor saw a video demanding that he repent and change his ways or the city was going down. All of a sudden, mortality comes into play.
When you see people declaring that they will get into heaven, you take note.
The Bible is clear about what the Lord said as to who is allowed into heaven.
Here are some Scriptures to go by.
John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”
Isaiah 64:6 “But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; (menstruated cloths), we all fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”
Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”
Here is the first link that was passed to me.
But here is the direct quote after searching
“Mr. Bloomberg was introspective as he spoke, and seemed both restless and wistful. When he sat down for the interview, it was a few days before his 50th college reunion. His mortality has started dawning on him, at 72. And he admitted he was a bit taken aback by how many of his former classmates had been appearing in the “in memoriam” pages of his school newsletter.
But if he senses that he may not have as much time left as he would like, he has little doubt about what would await him at a Judgment Day. Pointing to his work on gun safety, obesity and smoking cessation, he said with a grin: “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”
The first thing that caught my eye was he said “if there is a God.” It’s strange that we know there is heaven but we are not sure that there is the God of heaven. And also note that there will be no “interview?”
That’s right there will be no interview. It’s called Judgment.
Here is the link if you think this is a joke….
It is clear that the former mayor wants to make a difference with the remaining time he has on earth, whatever that may be. However, according to the Word of God, we can never do enough on earth to make a difference and use that as “leverage” to boldly assume that it would be enough to gain entrance into the kingdom of heaven.
The Bible is clear about sin and righteousness.
But the Word of God is also clear about rich men getting into heaven.
Matthew 19:23-24 “Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
Let’s be clear.
The Lord is not looking to banish all rich people. The Lord desires for all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. Rich people banish themselves by imposing upon God their terms of getting into heaven. Few understand that heaven is holy because God is holy. Few understand that man cannot work to get into heaven.
The work was done on the cross of Christ.
It’s called grace!
Unmerited or unearned favor.
Earning our way into heaven cannot be done because God does not want you to boast about how great and good a guy you are.
What we do as far as good works is not enough to earn our way into heaven.
Titus 3:5-7 says “…not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”
A sinner must be made new. A sinner must be washed. A sinner must be cleansed.
We must admit or acknowledge that we are sinners.
We throw ourselves upon the mercy of the Lord to save us because we cannot save ourselves from sin, death, and hell, and later, the lake that burns with fire and brimstone forever.
Why is it according to “His mercy?”
Mercy prevents what we rightfully deserve.
We deserve punishment because “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
“There is no one righteous, no, not one.”
The Righteous Judge of all the earth demanded that man be sentenced to death and eternal separation from the Holy God because of our sins. But He made a way out for man. He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to die for our sins.
“Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”
To be justified means to declare a person innocent of all charges even though they are guilty of all charges.
Now bear in mind that we all have or had stuff that would prevent us all from getting into heaven.
We all have stuff.
The one thing that condemns us to hell is whether we believe in the provision of salvation, graciously made by Jesus. If we declare that Jesus is Lord, and believe in our heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved (Romans 10:9-10).
Then looking at the works of Michael Bloomberg and the world, we see that his support for same sex marriage is before him. This is not the sin that will prevent him from getting into heaven. This is a sin that God is against. God is against the sin of homosexuality. His performance of officiating a same sex wedding is a work of darkness.
Then there is the “morning after pill” given to teens when they get pregnant as students in the NYC Board of Education system to reduce the number of abortions in school children. This is not the sin that would prevent him form getting into heaven. However, this is the sin that God is against. Fornication and murder.
If he repents or change his mind, ask for God’s forgiveness of his sins, reconsider his wicked spiritual condition, declares that Jesus is Lord, and believe that God raised Jesus from the dead, he and all rich men would be saved.
The Book of Revelation tells us that we would be judged by the works we have done.
Revelation 20:11-15 says “Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them.
And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life.
And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.
Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”
The most important part about this Scripture is whether your name is in the Book of Life.
So, if Michael Bloomberg is reading this, my advice to you, sir, is to repent, ask for God’s forgiveness. He is gracious and kind. He will abundantly pardon you of all your sins. The Holy Spirit will come into your heart. He will take your stony heart and make it new and responsive to God. Then find a good Bible believing local assembly where people are living the Word of God. Get water baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Don’t even bring your check book. Leave that at home.
Any pastor or church that looks like they want to hound you for any money is not the right church to attend. On the other hand, if you think that righteousness could be bought or attained by your giving, you are sadly mistaken.
Leave your money at home. It is not necessary to get into the kingdom.
But if you love your money more than God, you might be able to buy a great looking casket for your remains, but you will not have a place in heaven on your own merits.
The Lord God told Moses to tell the people of Israel in Leviticus 18:19-23 “Also you shall not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness as long as she is in her customary impurity. Moreover you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor’s wife, to defile yourself with her.
And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord.
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman.
It is an abomination.
Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it.
It is perversion.”
While only a small percentage will cross this line, is it possible for even more to pervert themselves with animals?
Is it possible that even practicing homosexuals would not cross the line and are repulsed by those that practice bestiality?
Am I suggesting that even homosexuals vehemently frown upon bestiality?
While it is possible, the argument will always remain that “it’s love.”
I know you are kidding me………right?
Take note of the picture above.
To the right, it appears that a woman is kissing a man but note the costume. That of a spider. Then the picture on the left. A man kissing his dog.
Say what you want, but we are now entering into an area where the push for accepting perversion is making bestiality normal.
Is bestiality the new gay?
Well……let’s just say that it is the next step that takes man and woman deeper into the dungeon of sexual immorality.
Notice that after homosexuality, which The Lord called disgusting, that The Lord called mating with animals perversion.
Have you noticed all these animal commercials and sexy songs that go with these commercials? It’s a clear indication that a sexual love affair with animals and their owners is becoming more acceptable.
And if you think this is a joke, think again.
California, also known as Californication makes history when a priest marries a man and his dog.
At first, you might be thinking that this is a hoax, but it isn’t.
One person commented, words to the effect that “One sin leads to another.”
He couldn’t have put it any better but in this case, any worse.
Even Charisma News weighed in on this subject. The article didn’t shock me but for Charisma to even post it was.
Here is the link.
Only 1% of the human population participate in bestiality. And those that participate in bestiality open themselves up to cancer and other diseases when SWA takes place.
According to Wikipedia, diseases acquired while having sex with animals are called zoophilia.
Just look at the word “zoo.” Then “philia”
Need we say more?
It is a sex act between a human and an animal.
The link below will show you the list of diseases a person may contract while acting out sexually with an animal.
As we observe perversion all around us, whether it is in the media, movies, the Internet, and in our own neighborhoods, like Lot, we are being vexed.
While these incidences are happening in subtle and blatantly overt ways, we have grown accustomed to it.
If we are not repulsed by these images and stories, it is a clear indication that the enemy is flashing these images so that we would never speak out against it.
The more we hear and see these demonic activities without challenging them, we become sensitized to perversion and desensitized to holiness.
The Bible tells us that the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. As the Lord lives, the earth will be filled with the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
How in the world will God fill the earth with His glory like the waters cover the sea? Jesus said that this gospel will be preached throughout all the world as a witness to the nations and then the end shall come (see Matthew 24:14). Each one of us is salt and light in the earth. When the church cleans itself up according to Ephesians 5:26-27, we will be able to do exactly as Jesus said. Not before.
The coming of the Lord is drawing near but the church is not clean. Just like when the Lord told His disciples that you are clean but not all of you, so it is today. Some are clean, others need cleansing according to Psalm 1, Psalm 119:9, 1 John 1:8-9, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, 7:1, and James 1:21.
We all know that the devil is pushing to fill the earth with evil and perversion.
But he can’t do it so long as the earth has salt and light in it.
We must speak the truth and expose the darkness.
We must be repulsed by every evil intent of the enemy.
We must never get comfortable with evil.
We must live what we preach and preach what we live, absent of hypocrisy.
My friend Pastor DL Foster of Witness Freedom Ministries will be sponsoring a powerful retreat for anyone struggling with SSA and is looking to find fellowship, instruction in righteousness and holiness in the presence of the Lord.
I must point out that registration is limited.
The first 100 will be able to secure a seat. When you click the link, you will see all the information you need to apply. It is affordable but if you are serious about going, make your move before the music stops.
No, I am not the facilitator of this. Just wanted to pass the Word. Anyone that is doing a worthwhile ministry to help ex-gays or ex-homosexuals maintain their deliverance, I will pass the Word. Every church and every pastor must be willing to point the direction to other ministries that major in things that we normally do not major in.
By praying for the success of this retreat, by passing the word, and money towards these kinds of ministry, we are seeing to it that the fruit that is brought into the house of the Lord remains in the house.
The climate in the United States and abroad is looking to keep people trapped in the sin of homosexuality. However, all across the country, we know that there are brothers that are looking for places where they can feel safe and have a sense of purpose, and belonging in a Spirit led, Bible based environment.
Very few ministries are geared toward this and this one is at the top of its game, and the list.
I strongly recommend this retreat to any brother looking to fellowship with other brothers that were freed from the law of sin and death.
As Paul said, “There is therefore now no condemnation to those that are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit.”
Deliverance is just one of many steps in the life of a believer in Christ.
The work is in the maintenance.
I believe that ministries like this is geared toward helping people maintain their sanctification and holiness in the Lord.
Pastor Foster once said to me that “Heterosexuality is not the goal. Holiness is.”
Now why would a man like me that never struggled with SSA would want to make a pitch for this ministry?
Sexual struggles are the same, the preferences are different.
The Spirit of God is the same. He ministers to all who struggle with any attraction that pulls a man away from the Savior into sin.
If you are looking for a place to fellowship, click the link below and make plans to attend.
You go everywhere else for vacation to enjoy yourself. Spend all sorts of money on other things.
Again, seats are limited. Only the first 100 will gain access.
Why not spend time learning with other brothers in the Lord some valuable lessons on living for the Lord and fellowshipping with overcomers in the Lord.
The link is below. Do not wait another second. Go ahead. The Lord is waiting for you, and the brothers that will meet you there are waiting for you too.
At first, it was shocking. But when a title like this comes across, it’s time to examine it.
When you boil it all down, it all comes down to who is telling the truth, and who is lying.
Jesus said in John 8:44……“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.”
The Lord Jesus told the truth and the leaders of Israel couldn’t handle the truth.
Then, in classic fashion, Jesus told them that they are liars just like their spiritual father, the devil. The devil is a murderer from the beginning.
Who did he murder?
Adam and Eve.
Remember when Adam and Eve ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? The Lord told them if they ate of that tree, that they would surely die.
Jesus also told the leaders that they are liars like the devil.
The devil lied to Eve about not dying.
So when the devil speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources. He speaks lies because the devil is incapable of telling the truth. The devil is the father of lies. So sinful, unregenerate man is incapable of telling the truth. Sinful man is capable of lying just like his spiritual father, the devil.
TruthWinsOut.com is a classic example of the devil using these people to speak more lies to bolster the sin of homosexuality. The truth is that there is only One Person capable of being truthful all the time.
Now mind you that the Lord Jesus is perfect. Sinless. Without Sin.
That means that everyone else is in sin. Imperfect. Sinful. With Sin.
As with all sin, we are in need of truth.
At the examination of the Lord Jesus before Pontius Pilate, Jesus was asked, “What is truth?”
Pilate didn’t know that The Truth was standing before him.
Jesus also said in John 14:6…..“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to the Father but through Me.”
So being that the Lord Jesus is The Truth, every one else is a liar.
We stop being a liar when we stop lying and accept the truth.
Here is the truth.
Homosexuality is a sin.
Why is homosexuality a sin?
Because of Genesis 1:26 and Genesis 2:24.
Where else is Homosexuality considered a sin?
Leviticus 18:22 and Romans 1:14-32.
What is another name for homosexuality?
Sodomy, or Sodomites.
Where does the word sodomy come from?
While there are many other references to the word Sodom in the Bible we will use Genesis 13:13, where the “men of Sodom was “exceedingly wicked and sinful before the Lord.”
What happened to the men of Sodom?
As judgment for their sins, God poured fire and brimstone from heaven on the men of Sodom and Gomorrah and four other cities for practicing the sin of homosexuality, and other vile sexual practices.
God’s judgment on their sin is a display of God’s displeasure of MSM and WSW perversion.
Is there any deliverance for homosexuals today?
Through the shed blood of Jesus. When a person repents of sin, receives forgiveness for sins by God, and is born again by the Holy Spirit, and when a person willfully obeys the gospel of Jesus Christ to never walk in sin, anyone could be delivered according to 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 and 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.
This is the only truth that wins out.
Not the lie that homosexuals want you to believe to be the truth.
Hebrews 9:27 is the tale of the tape.
The truth of the gospel wins out because of the love of God for man.
Below is a link to their version of truth which should be changed to “Our Version Is Not Truth.”
There is a presentation at the end of this blog that is entitled “From Selma To Stonewall.”
I am not the originator of this title or video, but the originator of this video and all who grew up in the real struggle for racial equality question the reason behind the current POTUS’s and FLOTUS’s usage to describe the Civil Rights Movement with the sin of homosexuality.
They constantly used “From Selma To Stonewall” to equate the struggle of the Civil Rights Movement to the Stonewall Inn Riots. What is also remarkable is that those that walked the streets for Civil Rights never corrected the president and the first lady. The people that were there should have cried out that the struggle for homosexual freedom cannot be compared to the struggle for racial equality.
There is a reason.
When you are not a born again believer that believes the Bible is the Word of God, and that the Lord condemned the sin of homosexuality, it is very easy to concoct a bald face lie.
Selma occurred, on March 7, 1965 and is also known as “Bloody Sunday.”
This peaceful demonstration took place to gain voting rights and the local and state authorities of Alabama attacked the peaceful protesters.
Stonewall is not a local town.
Stonewall Inn was a bar in Greenwich Village located on the lower west side of Manhattan frequented by homosexuals and other individuals of the sex scene of the 60’s.
The Stonewall Inn was owned by the Mafia. The police would raid these places to attack organized crime.
Not deal with the homosexuals.
The raids would be controlled and order would be restored after the raids, but this was the last straw for homosexuals. This riot took place in September of 1969. Over four years and 6 months after Selma, 1 year and 6 months after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., 1 year and three months after Robert Kennedy’s assassination (correct me if I’m wrong).
So Stonewall had nothing to do with Civil Rights.
Yet, we hear the president and first lady utter these words constantly.
“From Selma to Stonewall.”
Now mind you, the president and first lady are about my age. We were too young to know what took place in Selma, but perhaps old enough to do what we call in elementary school “Current Events.”
We would paste news events in our composition book (I know…..silly), and then write a brief summary of the event.
I do not remember doing a current event on Stonewall.
I do not remember my Language Arts or English teacher in elementary school telling us about the Stonewall riots. We didn’t know that a riot took place on the lower west side of Manhattan because NYC was a lascivious town in riot mode day and night.
The phrase, “The City Never Sleeps” is for real.
And I lived as an 8 year old in Brooklyn at the time.
Thank God that history was recorded and properly documented. Otherwise, we would be able to make even the past anything we want it to be.
So what makes us think that the president and the first lady knew anything about Selma and Stonewall to be able to invoke its memory, and make a contemptible connection of a sacred Civil Rights Struggle to the sin of homosexuality?
As you will see in the documentary, the contrast is clear.
Listen to the last line in the documentary very closely.
“Stonewall wasn’t any Selma and gay is not the new black.”
A link of this documentary is provided.
“Our responsibility is never to oppose the truth, but to stand for the truth at all times.” 2 Corinthians 13:8 (NLT)
