While climate change (ANOTHER BIG LIE) is making the news, the SCOTUS “law of the land” ruling on same sex marriage (ANOTHER BIG LIE-NO SUCH LAW) has contributed to the myth that homosexuality is no longer wrong, taboo, or, in their wildest imagination, a sin.
Get “married,” force the states to recognize same sex marriage, and it’s all nationally legal.
Just because it is legal, it doesn’t make it moral.
The Bible condemns the sin of homosexuality and ALL sexual immorality.
Well, it’s called “cause and affect.”
When you do something, someone is affected.
According to the CDC, and sometimes you have to look at this and other concurring statistics, 50,000 new cases will manifest this year. They say that this has been consistent, year after year of these new cases.
Yet, because of “…the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the pride of life,” men and women will continue to be infected and afflicted with this and other STDs.
I’ve watched a commercial that stated this same fact. In this commercial, they also said that “there is no cure of HIV…”
If there is no cure, then why do people continue to be affected?
Lust. The desire to have that which is forbidden.
The desires of the flesh and the mind consistently demand to overrule God and His Word to have sex with the same sex. The contraction of this and other diseases is proof that God forbids this disgusting activity.
Here is the consequence of performing the sin of homosexuality.
You commit this sin and the consequence of this sin is STD’s. HIV is a sexually transmitted disease. Meaning that if you do have MSM, you can get the disease.
The number also suggests under reporting because there are many people that refuse to get tested because of the fear of discovering that they are HIV positive.
The opposite is true. If you do not have MSM, you cannot get infected unless it’s by intravenous drug use by contaminated needles, or blood transfusions, should there be a mistake in detection or by child birth.
And recently, we’ve heard that they are allowing HIV positive people to donate blood.
Now how silly is this?
As some of you are reading this article, you may have already been diagnosed and is going through some form of treatment. Some of you have full blown AIDS. Usually when an HIV person has been diagnosed, should they acquire some form of cancer, it is an indication that you have full blown AIDS.
And even with taking drugs to combat the affects of the disease, time is not on your side.
This should compel any individual to see the Lord to be saved but it doesn’t. Most people just accept the verdict and depart into hell to be tormented forever needlessly.
I realize that this is not the thing that most people facing death want to hear, but the Bible that prohibited this and other sexual immoral acts has the answer to get into God’s kingdom.
We will either meet the Lord as our Savior or we will meet Him as our Eternal Judge. Most people faced with death are very hesitant when it comes to ascertaining their salvation.
Many people with a terminal illness refuse to repent, hoping that their “good works” would suffice. Romans 3 tells us that “all have sinned….”
In that same chapter, Paul quoted from the OT by saying that “There is none that is good.”
Sinners want to change the rules of the Word of God so as to make God to be in the wrong and to make Him change.
It doesn’t work that way.
Many think and believe that the Lord is wrong and He has to get right.
God was not the One that sinned. He created us and anyone that makes anything has a right to make the rules. According to Galatians 3:22 “But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.”
God did not create or made men to be homosexuals. God did not create you in sin. When Adam sinned against God, everything that was contrary or opposed to God manifested. It wasn’t that way before or in the beginning according to Jesus in Matthew 19:4-5.
Psalm 100:3 says “The Lord, He is God. It is He that has made us and not we ourselves.”
And when He made us, He made us in His image.
God is holy. Not unholy. Not perverted. Not sinful.
When Adam sinned against God, man became perverted, unholy, and sinful. We are the ones that need the Savior. God doesn’t need to be saved.
“God demonstrated His love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (see Romans 5:8).
But here is verse 9……“Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.”
That’s right……“saved from wrath through Him (Jesus).”
As long as you remain unrepentant, you are under the wrath of God.
John 3:36 says………“He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
As long as you do not trust in Jesus alone for salvation and departing forever the works of darkness and sin, “the wrath of God abides on you.”
To get the wrath of God off of you, you must repent or change your mind.
Then you must put your total faith on Jesus for salvation, never to return to sin against Him again.
You have but a short time in this life. You are like a flower, quickly fading, a wave tossed in the ocean, a vapor. Here today and gone tomorrow. You know that time is slipping away. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone but eternity is promised to everyone.
Where you choose to spend eternity is up to you. For the Lord gave you His Son so that you can “….flee from the wrath that is to come.”
This great love that the Lord is offering you is but for a limited time.
The coming of the Lord or your death…which ever comes first.
Hebrews 9:27 tells us…..“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, after that the judgment.”
Death is coming and there is nothing that any man can do about it, for the Scriptures tells us in Ecclesiastes 8:8 that “No one has power over the spirit to retain the spirit, and no one has power in the day of death. There is no release from that war, and wickedness will not deliver those who are given to it.”
So what’s it going to be?
Bypass a golden opportunity to escape the wrath to come or be plunged into hell?
The statistics on HIV could be read here.
One of the things that we must understand about damage control is that when too much information is shared, there is a greater chance the truth will be told. And when the truth is told, somebody will look bad.
To prevent an exodus of people from lies to truth, leaders use coercion, secrecy and silence.
The power of truth is so that we understand the face value of a situation for what it really is.
The Spirit of God, in 1 Corinthians 12 is the One that bestows upon all the children of God the ability to have access into the very heart of things through the gifts of the Spirit. As a note, a person must initially be filled with the Spirit, with the evidence of speaking with “other tongues“ as the Spirit gives utterance, to qualify to be used by the Spirit of God with the rest of the gifts of the Spirit.
Thank God that the Holy Spirit doesn’t exposé stuff unless it is absolutely necessary.
The gift of the Spirit called “The Word of Wisdom,” is a very powerful gift.
According to Howard Carter, from his book on the gifts of the Spirit, there are three categories of the gifts of the Spirit.
Gifts of Revelation. Gifts of Power. Gifts of Utterance.
The revelation gifts or gifts that show something are…
The Word of Wisdom. The Word of Knowledge. Discerning of Spirits.
The power gifts or gifts that do something are…
The working of miracles, the gift of faith, gifts of healing or healings.
The utterance gifts or gifts that say something are…
Prophesy, gift of tongues, interpretation (not translation) of the gift of tongues.
Now when it comes to the Word of wisdom, it has a lot to do with what is shown or revealed of events that have yet to come to pass.
The Word wisdom actually means “to have understanding or to become wise.”
When there is a revelation about something that must come to pass, you are better able to handle what is to come. If you knew that famine was coming, wouldn’t you prepare for it? It shows that you’ve wised up.
Agabus the prophet received a Word of Wisdom that prepared the people to help those that would be caught in this famine in Judea.
This advanced warning helped them to handle what was to come (see Acts 11:28-29).
The famine was revealed to him before the famine hit.
They wised up and made provision so they would be sustained throughout the famine.
The saints lives were probably spared.
Then there is the Word of knowledge.
This gift reveals things about past or present things concerning people, places, or things.
Then there is the discerning of spirits.
Discerning people is not discerning of spirits. In fact when you hear people say these things, they think that they are spiritual when that are spiritually immature.
This gift is sometimes used in conjunction with visions and dreams but primarily it is the uncovering of the eyes to see into the realm of the spirit the activities and interactions of people and demons. Some of you may remember when Elisha and his servant were surrounded by the Syrian army and his servant feared. Elisha asked the Lord to open his eyes. Remember, the OT prophets were called “seers.” The Lord honored Elisha’s request and the servant was able to see that the hosts of heaven outnumbered the Syrian army.
This is discerning of spirits in operation where you, by the gracing of the Spirit of God, can see into the realm of the spirit.
When the gifts of the Spirit are in operation, it should be a clear signal of intent that God is among you and He is letting you know that something supernatural is taking place. It is a deliberate, intentional act to get your attention. Just like when Jesus was at Jacob’s well speaking prophetically to the Samaritan living in adultery and she was lovingly exposed.
Too often, we get used to the utterance gifts that we forget the other gifts of the Spirit are available when the Spirit of God chooses to release these gifts to the Body to profit. And when these gifts operate and we fail to properly recognize, and identify the operation, we haphazardly think that God is not moving. That God cannot see what men do. And like The Preacher said, “Men’s hearts are set to do evil because punishment is not issued to them swiftly.”
We plan, scheme, and do things wickedly, thinking that we could get away with it. Such depraved thinking reminds me of when Gehazi, after Naaman, the Syrian was healed of leprosy, chased after Naaman to receive riches and clothing that Naaman offered to Elisha. Gehazi brought the stuff back and hid it in his tent, all supposedly out of the physical eye sight of the prophet of God.
Gehazi took a chance that the gifts of the Spirit would not operate. That’s what covetousness would drive you to do sometimes. You believe that God would not catch on to what you were doing. Sometimes, we need to quit before we get started when it comes to sinning against God.
Elisha confronted Gehazi and Gehazi lied about the situation. Elisha said….
“Did not my heart went with you?”
You do not know when and you do not know where but remember the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth…
Whatever is said in secret and in silence, the Lord already knew about it. Whatever plans you may have that is against the will of God, it will never come to pass. It was already brought to nothing in eternity pass. It failed before conception and manifestation. You do not want to be found fighting against God.
In the heart of the Father, the Lord already dropped a dime on you. It’s just that people insist on a perverted course to intersect with the destiny of destruction for all those that insist on running the red light.
Plainly. You are advised to stop, cease, and desist in your maneuvers against the known will of God. The fear of God must always be greater than the fear of man.
My point is simple.
No matter how many secrets and no matter how many people become silent, the Holy Spirit knew already and when necessary, He will reveal the truth. And if it takes the gifts of the Spirit to get the desired results of revealing the truth, so be it.
The purpose of the revelation gifts is to uncover that which is hidden. To release what is concealed. To expose what is intentionally obscured.
Now we cannot control the Holy Spirit and we cannot tell the Holy Spirit to reveal anything. The Bible tells us that…“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all…But the one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.”
The Holy Spirit may or may not reveal anything but knowing that He is “the Spirit of truth” (see John14:17), we should never leave anything to chance.
When truth comes, not everyone will like it.
This is where loyalties are challenged. When the truth comes, will you side in with that which is true or will you side in with the liars?
This is nothing new.
The Garden of Eden was the second place where the lie and character assassination was born. Evidently, it was in heaven that the devil set out to dethrone God. The devil had to lie to himself to deceptively believe he could take God down, but he knew that he needed some help.
Having served in the Navy, the term of war comes to mind.
According to Von Clausewitz, war is the deliberate use of force to compel your enemy to submit to your will. When diplomacy and negotiations result in irreconcilable differences, to settle the issue, force is used to make the point.
Hence, a word of warning is issued to all who read this.
“The Spirit speaks expressly that the intent of silence and secrecy is well known to Me and think not that you will be able to conceal it from Me. Your lips have moved and your heart is known. Yes, it was known before I formed the dry ground and before I blew into the nostrils of Adam, the secrets of men’s hearts were already known.”
So before proceeding any further, it is highly recommended that there would be great caution before the next move is made. Once you commit and enter into the point of no return, the implications and ramification that will result of a failure to take heed will be too much for many to bear.
Many in the LGBT community are very fearful.
At this point, they feel safe and that’s not a good place to be. In the battle for the hearts, minds, and bodies of men, they feel that they have enough momentum to enact their agenda with little resistance.
At one point, it seemed like they would steam roll their agenda across the country.
They counted on the sleeping giant to just roll over and not care.
Inattentive giants seldom awaken unless something extraordinary happens.
It’s amazing that when a person makes a statement that it may become the one thing that shakes the giant alive to action.
This battle is not over by a long shot. This struggle is just getting started.
LGBT has some sympathetic activist jurors. They have strongholds in the NAACP and other African American Civil Rights organizations. They have made their case to certain rogue local churches and pastors and bishops in certain denomination and non denominational churches. They have their own churches that are complete LGBT “safe havens and sanctuaries.”
LGBT has local, state, and federal politicians that passed legislation calling for the sin of homosexuality to be viewed as a sexual orientation that must not be discriminated against. All hate language against homosexuals is bigotry, discrimination, and will not be tolerated.
LGBT has found a way to accuse the true church of being insensitive, intolerant, unloving, discriminators, and they place churches, anti gay articles, speeches, preaching, and righteous blogs on watch lists.
Such a compiling of a watch list is similar to Watergate activities.
No, LGBT is not sending second rate burglars to a building.
However, as a group, they are acting like the late former president Richard Nixon in trying to locate who his enemies are and place them on a list to attack them later.
LGBT & GLEN is forging ahead to indoctrinate children in the public school systems. They are attempting to use truancy laws and other stop gap measures to prevent parents from pulling their children out of schools where LGBT indoctrination material is taught.
In NYC alone, there is a concerted effort to discontinue churches from using public schools as places of worship for small congregations that cannot afford to rent out a facility of their own due to the high cost of leasing commercial space. That’s because commercial property owners are paying considerable amounts of property tax and cannot afford to reduce their rent.
As one attorney put it to us, “property tax never goes down. It always increases.”
This tactic is a clear illustration of the fact that the world is attempting to push the righteous voice of the church out.
That’s the picture that is painted.
It’s not pretty.
One thing that we must be aware of.
God was never caught off guard.
All of these things He saw before time began. He knows the names of every individual that would thumb their noses at Him. He knows the names of all the people that would stand in opposition to His will.
It’s comforting to know that God knows your name. It’s reassuring that the God of the entire universe knew that you would be against Him. Comforting in the sense that God doesn’t want to drive you back into the closet.
The objective of the church is not chase you back into the places of darkness.
Quite the contrary.
The Lord desired to pull you out of darkness and be conveyed in the kingdom of the Son of His love. However, He also knew before time began that there will be those that will not come out of the dark place and remain in the sin of homosexuality.
According to the Lord Jesus, “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God, and this is the condemnation, that light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light , lest his deeds should be exposed.”
These gay Christians are the same ones that practice the sin of homosexuality.
The Word of the Lord for gay Christians is Matthew 7:21-25.
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? ’And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
The true mark of a true Christian or child of God is when they depart from iniquity and embrace the Savior, departing from sin.
The true mark of a sinner is when they stay in the sin of homosexuality or any sin for that matter. Because sin is the identifying characteristic that you are a child of the devil.
John, the eyewitness apostle of the Lamb said in 1 John 3:7-9,
“Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.”
It is clear that LGBT has no fear of God. Otherwise, they would recognize that if they practice the sin of homosexuality, they are not in the kingdom of God.
As John said, “…let no one deceive you.”
They do not think that they will be judged.
So they forge ahead with their diabolical agenda.
LGBT’s Worst Fear?
Defections are happening all over the place.
People that they once counted on to be loyal and faithful to the cause of propagating the sin of homosexuality are defecting. One by one, they are quitting the lifestyle. They had enough of the shame, pain, fear, rejection, depression, and sin.
One by one, the lie that “it gets better” is just that.
And the Bible is true.
Jesus is Lord and Savior. They are finding grace to help in time of need. Ex-homosexuals and ex-lesbians are quitting and coming to Christ. All over the United States, the defection is picking up steam.
Another thing that is picking up steam is that African Americans are finally seeing that their racial struggle was hijacked and is being used to cloak the sin of homosexuality. So much so that when the president voiced his support for gay marriage, the true African American pastors are standing with God to speak against the president’s ill fated conclusion.
He is sending the Attorney General, and other officials to gain support of African American pastors to get them to somehow support the president. It appears that the president’s announcement wasn’t taken well by maverick pastors that refused to line up with rogue leaders of the NAACP, Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, Joseph Lowery and other men that claim to be in the ministry that is sympathetic to the sin of homosexuality.
A lack of support from the African American community only spells trouble for the president. Any solid support that is missing only ensures that the conservative base has great momentum that may pose a similar problem like in the 2004 election.
Independent African American pastors must not fear the establishment.
The NAACP establishment and their leaders never had the best interest of African Americans and they never will. They are an institution that should have moved in righteousness and not unrighteousness.
African American pastors that are somewhat sensitive to God and His Word must make for the exits because the hand of God is against you should you stay and support the killing of our own babies through Planned Parenthood. Excuse me, Eugenics. Excuse me, Planned Abortionhood.
You are either for God or against Him. You can’t be both.
African American pastors that are sympathetic to the NAACP’s position about same sex marriages and LGBT causes is a position that violates the Word of God. Over half of all HIV/AIDS cases are African American. How can you support the sin of homosexuality knowing that half of all new cases, annually, come from your own people.
Pastor, you are no different than the devil if you support the sin of homosexuality through same sex unions. The devil is lying to you and through you. You need to repent before God before the heavy hand of the Lord sweeps through. For “the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men…”
African American pastor, you are doing more to destroy your own people than preaching righteousness based on the Bible. There is no place for you to hide for cover for you will be exposed and dealt with.
Paul said it clear with no wiggle room.
“Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord.”
LGBT’s Worst Fears?
African American pastors are leading the way to speak truth to the people. Not just to African American parishioners but to all races. We are exposing the lies for what they are.
We are discipling people that have SSA and sexual immorality issues.
We want lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender people to come to our churches.
A REAL CHURCH WHERE NON CONDEMNING DELIVERANCE takes place.
We know of individuals that changed their physical bodies from male to female and went back because they know that it was against the will of God.
LGBT’s Worst Fears?
We know of many homosexuals and lesbians that have come out of the closet, lived in the sin of homosexuality, only to meet the true Lover of their souls, and gave their lives to Jesus. It is happening. They are finally waking up to the fact that sin is not the way to live.
They are finding peace, joy, and, true love in the Savior.
LGBT participants, it’s not too late.
The pain and suffering ends when you recognize that Jesus will truly satisfy you deepest longing and desires. One person at a time, they are making a way to the exits of the contradictions and lies that held them bound.
Ex-homosexuals and lesbians. Ex-sexual immoral people.
LGBT’s Worst Fears.
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.
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.
There is a myth about homophobia that is dispelled by the Scriptures, the Holy Bible.
But first, phobia is defined as “an anxiety disorder characterized by extreme and irrational fear of simple things or social situations.”
In the normal understanding of phobia, it is associated with simple things such as “fear of heights, and fear of closed places or spaces called claustrophobia.”
When it comes to social situations, there is a variety of situations. People, places, or things.
Therefore, and anxiety disorder is a worry or fear characterized by extreme or irrational fear of…
So, when a person hears about a homosexual person or homosexuality, homosexuals believe that when a person is against or is prejudiced against a person that practices the sin of homosexuality, the homosexual believes that the believer in Christ’s stand against the sin is an extreme or irrational fear.
When you deal with the coined term, “homophobia,” it is pointed towards those that are “prejudiced against (fear or dislike of) homosexual people and homosexuality.”
The myth of homophobia is a paradox.
Here is the reason.
The homophobia term a demonically inspired lie that is used as an attempt to place a stereotype on believers in Christ to impose shame.
All lies come from the devil according to what Jesus said in John 8:44.
The homophobia stigma is a myth because true believers in Christ are not fearful of confronting the sin of homosexuality operating in the sons of disobedience and children of wrath.
So the winds of the LGBT agenda in legalizing homosexuality and conspiring laws to prohibit preaching against homosexuality is an attempt to put fear in the hearts of true believers in Christ that they no longer are permitted, by human law, to declare homosexuality a sin, and to stop the believers from preaching righteousness.
In other words, homosexuals and lesbians want to reverse the fear.
If such an ungodly law were to pass, many true believers will not obey it and we are ready to willfully violate that law. For we fear God rather than man. We are prepared to witness for Christ and not deny the faith.
The fall back position is to get everyone to coexist, tolerate, and teach that there is nothing to be afraid of.
While behind the scenes, the proponents of LGBT & GLEN is saying, “We are not afraid of God or the Bible because we got a law that allows us to live the way we want to live. Therefore, you are the ones that are afraid. We haven’t done anything wrong because homosexuality is not a sin. We are legitimate because we can get married. We got Civil Rights. You ought to be ashamed to call us sinners because homosexuality is about sexual orientation, not sin. You “so called believers” are the ones that have the phobia.”
When a person, namely a believer in Christ, uses the Scriptures to point out that homosexuality is a sin, immediately, the person or persons involved in the sin of homosexuality is convicted.
To call a believer in Christ a homophobe is an attempt to reverse the effects of conviction in an attempt to get the person to back away from preaching the righteousness of God to an unrighteous person.
When you hear sympathetic persons, (carnal Christians) take up the “cause,” by saying that it isn’t right to “judge,” it’s a dead giveaway.
By default and by preponderance, they are involved in sin themselves.
How do I know?
Just name the one sin or sins you refuse to break free from.
If you are still involved in committing that one sin that easily besets you, then you are disqualified and you are in default. God is not asking for perfection.
He is commanding abstinence.
There’s a difference.
Let’s say you laid aside the sin that easily besets you, and you still say that it is not right to judge. There is a difference between being a hypocrite and calling sin a sin. The Bible says that it is a sin and we are putting our voice to what the Word of God said.
Many argue with the preacher and all the preacher is doing is putting his or her voice, and life to the Word. It makes no sense to preach something and not live it. That’s hypocrisy.
Some preaching, not all preaching is just like throwing a rock in a pack of dogs. The one that gets hit will cry.
If I preach on homosexuality, the homosexual, if any in the service will get hit. If I preach against lying, cheating, and stealing. If there is any of them in the service, they will get hit. The same goes with adulterers, fornicators (porn), bisexuals, etc.
There is no defense for sin and we have no business defending those involved in sin.
We have a responsibility to preach against sin and we have a responsibility to help those that desire to come out of sin.
Either you are for sin or you are against sin. No sense straddling, and you can’t stand on both sides of the fence at the same time. Automatically, it’s a clear indication, without a shadow of doubt, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ.
Is it possible to be misguided or perhaps, misinformed?
It is true that believers today do not know the absolutes of God’s position as declared in His Word. Such ignorance, however, is no longer feasible because in America, access to correct, solid, contextual Bible teaching is inescapable and a believer’s position according to the parable of the sower reveals the true character of the heart (see Luke 8:11-15).
And because of this ignorance, it is considered by LGBT and GLEN of believers in Christ as being fearful and spineless believers in Christ. And the devil, through LGBT and GLEN is taking full advantage.
Two Scriptures come to mind when it comes to carnal believers attempting to ignore the absolutes of God’s Word or evading correct, contextual Biblical teaching.
Numbers 14:21 and Habakkuk 2:14.
“But truly, as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord…”
“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”
You can’t be sympathetic to sin that God hates.
Otherwise, there would be no need for Jesus to die.
Spiritually speaking, when the Word of God is preached, its called the fear of God. The Biblical fear of God is clear from Genesis to Revelation. The Biblical word “fear” speaks of the reverence or respect of God. So the homosexual, or any one caught in any sin, when they hear the Word of God, either a person in sin will suppress his or her fear that God said it is sin or attempt to turn the table on what was preached in righteousness.
How could the table be turned?
By declaring righteousness as wrong, hence, declaring God is wrong.
That’s what the term homophobia is all about.
With our parents, when they tell us to do a certain thing, in obedience and also in reverence and respect, we do what we are told. We all know that there is a consequence when we fail to do what we are told by our parents. It is the same with respecting laws. It is the same with respecting the Lord.
In order for the myth of “homophobia” to work, homosexuality must be accepted as a normal part of a person’s lifestyle, accepted by society, and deemed as a sexual orientation, not a sin.
The key is to take the sting of the word “sin” out.
If the word sin is removed, then we can live with living wrong as right living.
We could just get along. Right?
It’s like telling a robber that it’s ok to rob an old lady because robbing an old lady is no longer a sin.
As a side note, to orient means, to “familiarize (someone) with new surroundings or circumstances.”
For instance, in order for civilians to become soldiers, sailors, airmen, or marines, the place they go to is called “Boot Camp.” It is there that civilians initially orient themselves to become a part of the military.
So when you talk about sexual orientation, they are taking that which once was “straight” and familiarizing someone with new surroundings or circumstances. In other words, because of delving into a sexual preference, they engage in Biblically prohibitive sexual activity.
Also known as sexual immorality.
The Bible (Leviticus 18:22, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, and Romans chapter 1) is the unavoidable, inevitable obstacle that the spirit of homosexuality and lesbianism cannot overcome and evade because God prohibits the sin; just as the Bible is prohibitive about adultery, fornication (porn), incest, rape, child molestation, bisexuality, and bestiality.
By the way, the way that LGBT and GLEN is attempting to discredit the Scripture references above is by gathering false Bible scholars to declare the Biblical prohibitions as ancient, out of date, misinterpreted, and no longer a part of Scripture. That Paul and the preachers of today do not know what they are talking about. Also by saying that the Lord Jesus never said anything about homosexuality (read Matthew 19:4-5, He said enough there).
These false scholars act is if they were there at the beginning and were there to compile canon Scripture in the late 1500’s.
You do not need a Bible scholar whether true or false to tell you that homosexuality is sin.
Since the Bible is clear in prohibiting the sinful practice of homosexuality and lesbianism, there must be a way for practicing homosexuals to discredit God, the Bible, discredit anyone preaching the Bible, discredit anyone delivered from the sin of homosexuality, discredit anything that speaks against homosexuals and homosexuality.
The way homosexuals and lesbians are attempting to discredit God and the Bible is to bring questions about the absolutes of God’s Word. Just like what satan did to Eve in the beginning. Make God out to be the Bad Guy or make it appear that true believers do not know what we are talking about. That we are incompetent, ignorant, and behind the times.
Such intimidation is designed to silence the true believers.
The true believers can’t help but speak the truth in love as opposed to cower in silence for fear being penalized by humans with immoral laws.
The other ways is to give the appearance that believers in Christ are fearful of homosexuals and homosexuality, pass legislation, and make immorality moral, invade the true church of Jesus Christ with perverseness, and, finally, establish their own temples, churches and other organizations where their brand of religiosity is acceptable and inclusive of homosexual sin.
Appearance is everything.
Then there is a wide variety of means and methods to forward the legislative process of legitimizing sin.
Pass legislation prohibiting hate speech to include preaching the Bible. Pass legislation to strike down certain State Constitutions that prohibit homosexuality. Pass legislation to strike down marriage between one man and one woman and include same sex unions. Judicial activism. Force pastors and churches to allow the use of exclusive sacred places to be used by homosexuals and lesbians.
Our response as believers is clear.
In 2 Timothy 1:7, Paul told Timothy,
“God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
The Greek word translate “fear” is the word, “phobos.”
Listen to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words…
“flight,” that which is caused by being scared; then, “that which may cause flight.”
Notice the opposite definition….
“(b) reverential fear,” (1) of God, as a controlling motive of the life, in matters of spiritual and moral, not a mere “fear” of His power and righteous retribution, but a wholesome dread of displeasing Him, a “fear” which banishes the terror that shrinks from His presence, (Romans 8:15), and which influences the disposition and attitude of one whose circumstances are guided by trust in God, through the indwelling Spirit of God…”
So the true believer doesn’t run in terror from homosexuals and the sin of homosexuality. We run towards you to tell the homosexuals, adulterers, lesbians, bisexuals, fornicators (porn), and those caught in any sexual immorality that they can be free in Jesus.
There are many people in and outside LGBT that do not want to accept the love of God as explained in the correctly expounded Scriptures. Time is wasted when people refuse to read the Scriptures in harmony. When LGBT attack true believers with words of hate and then call true believers hateful, they have yet to explain with good reasoning, and with Scripture, why they think we true believers in Christ hate LGBT.
We do not hate homosexuals, lesbians, fornicators, adulterers, bisexuals, and animal “sexual lovers.”
Can sin be allowed in heaven? It makes sense to keep sin out of heaven where God is holy.
This makes sense.
Can sin be included in the kingdom of the Son of His love?
Jesus, the One they claim that hates me (Fred Rochester). Jesus, the One LGBT claims to say that they know Him and was accepted or included into the kingdom, said,
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.”
Lovingly speaking. What’s the sense of calling me a hater?
What is it that we true believers hate?
We hate the devil. We hate the lies of the devil. We hate the sins of the devil that operate in the sons of disobedience and children of wrath. We hate it when people are bound in sin. We hate it when sinners take the Word of truth and use it to their own sinful advantages. We hate it when sinners accuse true believers of being hateful when we speak the truth of God’s word in love. We hate it when sinners are trying to change the Un-changable God and settled Word of God.
Malachi 3:6 says,
“I am the Lord, I change not!”
Psalm 119:89 says,
“Forever, O Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven.”
You can’t change God and you can’t unsettle or remove from being established His Word. God cannot lie. Because the Bible reveals from cover to cover His hatred of sin. You are not going to change His mind and because I agree with the Bible, and I agree with God, my mind is made up.
Is it because the truth of the Bible is too much to bear that you have to relinquish the lies and sins to truly be a believer in Jesus?
We do not hate people because…
Rule number one. God loves all sinners including LGBT.
Scripture reference: John 3:16-21 and Romans 5:6-11
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
The word “perish” in verse 16 is there for a reason.
Who is it that will perish?
Those that do not believe that Jesus is Lord and Savior.
What LGBT want you to believe is that they believe in Jesus but they do not believe that they are condemned.
They do not believe that homosexuality and lesbianism is sin.
The Lord God saw the perversion of man in Noah and Lot’s days.
His Word is clear in the book of Leviticus that it is abomination. If that wasn’t serious enough, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah is proof that homosexuality and lesbianism is sin, otherwise, why would God pour out His wrath?
So, prior to the dispensation of grace, Jesus Himself, the very Person that LGBT want to remake into their kind of Savior said…
“And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
Now this lines up with what was shared in “Are LGBT People Our Brothers And Sisters In Christ?”
There is a difference between sinners and children of God.
Sinners practice evil. Children of God practice righteousness.
When you believe in Jesus, you depart from practicing sin. You can’t practice sin and be in Jesus at the same time. The deeds of sinners is the distinguishing feature. Notice again what Jesus said and pay attention to what is clearly underlined…
“…because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light…”
What kinds of evil deeds is Jesus talking about?
Men kissing men. Women kissing women sexually. Men doing unnatural sex acts with men. Women doing unnatural sex acts with women. Men and women practicing adultery. Men and women practicing fornication. Men and women practicing bisexual and bestiality acts. And men and women practicing all other sins listed in the Bible.
These are distinguishing evil deeds practiced by men and these kinds of men hate the light.
LGBT sinners want to purport that their homosexual sins are not evil. We all know that all sins cannot be done in God because God hates all sin. And LGBT, your works are not done in God.
What you practice reveals who you are and those in LGBT does not have a right to tell children of God how to interpret the Bible because sinners, LGBT included, are not in Christ.
Notice what Paul said in Romans 8:1-4
“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
So if you want to come out of the self imposed condemnation, you must be in Jesus and you must stop walking in the flesh. You must, according to Jesus, stop practicing evil.
LGBT, what is your Biblical proof for believing in Jesus?
According to the Bible, and according to Jesus, you must show that you believe in Jesus by discontinuing evil deeds, and cease practicing evil.
How is this done?
“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.”
When you are not free of practicing evil deeds, you are not in Christ. Therefore, you cannot obey the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.
What makes living free of sin possible?
“For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”
On the cross of Christ, God placed every man’s sin on Jesus. The Lord God condemned sin in the flesh of Jesus.
What was the righteous requirement of the law?
In Colossians 2:14, Paul said,
“…having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.”
The righteous requirement of the law was more than the law of Moses. Its origin goes back to the Garden of Eden when the Lord God told Adam not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. In the day that he ate, he surely died.
Through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, man can live free of the power and guilt of sin. Not live to continue in sin. What would be the point of Jesus dying for sin?
God loved us so much that He decided to take out of the way an ordinance to destroy man because of his sins. In taking away this ordinance to condemn man forever, man is free to repent, and receive salvation and reconciliation. He made it possible for man to repent of his sins, be born again, and live free of the power of sin.
Meaning that you stop practicing all sin, you begin to abstain from all sins, and live for God. That’s when your deeds are righteous. You do not get to declare homosexuality or lesbian righteous acts. When you come out of sin, the acts of sin must remain out of your life. You willingly ban from inclusion the life and activities of all sin.
To be born again is God, the loving God, comes into your life, take away that sinful nature, and placing His righteous nature in you so you can be free of all sins. All at the expense of the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. The One that loved us all and died for us all.
To include homosexuality and lesbianism as acts of righteousness because, according to LGBT and their immoral legislative instruments, homosexuality and lesbianism is no longer deemed a sin is the objective of LGBT.
This cannot be, based on Revelation 22:14.
“But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.”
It doesn’t make sense for God to liberate you from sin so you can stay in sin.
And it doesn’t make sense for God to liberate you from sin so you can rename your sin as righteous.
The Lord God’s demonstration of His love for us is seen in the sacrifice and propitiation of His Son. Propitiation is the appeasement that God required to free man from the condemnation.
I can understand, to a degree, why a person would say, “God hates me for the hate I purvey.”
To declare what sin is and how to be free of sin is too much for some people to bear. To walk away from something that you love to do is almost impossible. But with God, all things are possible.
LGBT, the Lord God loves you.
He loves you enough to tell you the truth.
In these verses of Scripture, look at the love of God but also look at why sinners run from the love of God.
In order to receive the truth, you have to let go of the lie. To receive eternal life, you must relinquish sin.
To say that I hate sinners, LGBT too, is far from the truth. I take no pleasure arguing. I take pleasure in Jesus. I take pleasure in watching sinners come to Jesus according to the Word of God. To be saved, delivered and set free from the power of satan (adversary), and come to the power of God.
What I will not accept from LGBT and their carnal sympathizers (sinning believers that live compromised lives), is the misuse of the Bible to justify living in sin and accusing true worshippers of Jesus of being hateful.
If we who write these blogs didn’t love you, we wouldn’t even waste space on the Internet. If we didn’t hate the lies that you’ve accepted without investigating the Scriptures correctly, we wouldn’t waste space on the Internet.
The blatant hijacking of the Scriptures to make it seem as if the Lord Jesus hates His own born again children is an attack of the devil. We know well his lies and his ability to keep people in the blind from the truth.
To accuse us of hatred is a common tool of the devil to get the church to feel that what we are saying and doing is wrong so that the sin in your lives could continue without conviction. If you weren’t convicted, you wouldn’t even bother.
But because the conviction of sin is great upon you, the only way to get at us to get us to back off declaring lesbianism, homosexuality, adultery, fornication, bisexuality, and bestiality as sin, is to write and pass human laws to declare that preaching the correct Word of God as hate language, and to call true believers reprehensible names.
As Pastor Scott Lively and many others that boldly proclaim the truth, censorship is one step short of outright murder. Just like in the book of Acts, chapter seven, when Stephen was killed when the heat of his preaching reached a boiling point in those that heard him.
The conviction of the Word of God was so intense that they couldn’t take it any more, that they bit him, and stoned him to death (verse 55 -60).
Now, let the Word of God, through Paul finish this out.
“For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.
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.
For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.”
Be reconciled, meaning. Exchange being an enemy of God to be a friend of God by believing in Jesus and prove that you believe in Jesus by ceasing your evil deeds.
It is extremely offensive to God and genuine children of God for LGBT to assume an identity that is exclusive of true born again believers.
A bird is a bird. A raven is a raven. An eagle is an eagle. A cat is a cat. A lion is a lion. A wolf is a wolf. A dog is a dog. A snake is a snake. A horse is a horse, of course, of course.
A believer is a believer. A sinner is a sinner.
Just as it is impossible for an animal to impersonate or assume an identity of another animal, the same is said of those that try so desperately to be like a believer but never become one.
Here is what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23,
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven. but he that does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? ’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
True believers depart from iniquity. True sinners practice lawlessness.
True believers submit to the Lordship and Sovereignty of Jesus.
True sinners rebel and reject the Lordship and Sovereignty of Jesus.
What is the will of the Father?
The first thing that Jesus preached after He was baptized was…
“Repent, for the kingdom of the heaven is at hand.”
When it is all said and done, the Lord will look at those that thought that they were in the kingdom and tell them…
‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness! ’
You see, to know Him is to repent and be born again, and depart from the very thing He died for.
Practicing LGBT sinners do not want you to call homosexuality, done openly or in secret, a sin. Telling you not to judge is just another tactic to get you to back off. In militant anger, they breathe fire and brimstone out on anyone that call homosexuality and lesbianism a sin.
Little by little they use every available tool to make homosexuality look less like sin and more like an acceptable form of lifestyle. The evidence emphatically and undeniably declare that the spots on the Leopard remain and the stripes on the Zebra remain.
Unapologetically, believers of the Lord Jesus Christ are only calling people that practice sin by the title conferred upon all man according to Romans 5:12.
Many in the homosexual community as well as in all sexual immorality circles that believe that children of God should not “judge” another person. It is the Holy Spirit’s job is to “convince” or show you with irrefutable evidence what sin is.
So when a sin is declared a sin, the Holy Spirit brings convicting power to get you to see that you need to repent. The Holy Spirit will not overpower you. The Holy Spirit will not overwhelm you. The Holy Spirit will make sure that you know that you have sinned.
Sinners and carnal, or sense/flesh ruled believers are trying to tell the holy, sanctified believers in the church not to judge.
They do not know the difference between good and evil.
Only the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, and correctly taught disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ are qualified to discern the difference between right and wrong (see Hebrews 5:12-14).
Sinners are incapable of discerning right from wrong for two reasons…
First, Jesus is our Lord and the Bible is the inerrant, infallible (incapable of the true Author-God, to be in error) Word of God.
Second, to qualify to know the difference between good and evil, you have to be a child of God which requires that you must repent, and be born again by the Holy Spirit.
God is right. And sinners are wrong.
LGBT sinners do not want you to call homosexuality, done openly or in secret, a sin. Telling you not to judge is just another tactic to get you to back off. In militant anger, they breathe fire and brimstone out on anyone that calls what they do a sin.
Most will know the story of Cain and Abel. Abel brought a lamb to be sacrificed, and the Lord was pleased. Cain brought fruit to offer to the Lord, and the Lord rejected Cain and his offering. Cain was mad and killed his brother. He really want to kill God but we all know that that is impossible, so Cain killed who he could get to.
All Cain had to do was repent to the Lord and find a lamb.
So it is with LGBT sinners.
Instead of simply coming to the Lamb of God in true repentance, they bring “fruit” to offer before God. This “fruit” is the attitude that says to God, ‘This is what I am giving You and You are going to accept it. That’s the way it’s going to be. Take it or leave it.”
Then, there are those LGBT sinners that play like God accepted homosexuality as not a sin, and pretend that it’s all good. Knowing full well that the Bible says otherwise.
Then they take it a step further.
The build churches around LGBT issues and label the true church of Jesus Christ as intolerant, unloving, out of step with the times, and completely irrelevant. Building homosexual churches and calling themselves “gay Christians” is “Wheat and Tares” according to Matthew 13:24-30.
The role reversal of LGBT is unacceptable.
Darkness telling light to take a hike. Does that make any sense?
How can darkness turn on the light? How could darkness tell you what light looks like?
How could darkness stick around when the light comes on? When you walk into a room, have you ever seen darkness stick around when the light comes on?
All sinners do not have the right to audaciously and arrogantly tell God what He is going to accept. And far be it from the truth that LGBT can take God’s church that He established through the cross of Christ and make it an institution of sin. Jesus Christ died so we could be freed from the guilt, shame, and power of sin. Not to continue to practice sin.
And when the true believers tell them that what they are doing is sin, they get mad and spew anger at the righteous.
All LGBT sinners has to do is repent, and be born again.
I know that you have noticed by now that I have used the word “sinner.”
I am not saying or using this word in anger at any LGBT sinner. I am only using the Bible’s specified word to describe what a person outside of Christ is.
Homosexuality is the highest manifestation of depravation.
Sinners practice sin. So when they practice the highest form of sin known to man, it requires the highest definition.
Abomination. Perversion. Sin.
The highest form of judgment was Sodom and Gomorrah. Fire and brimstone was a one time judgment upon sinfully depraved man.
HIV/AIDS is the highest ranking STD to date known to man simply because the body defiled itself in deplorable, abominable sexual sins, and as a consequence, significantly reduced it’s immune system.
Sadly, a bacteria sneeze from a sick person is capable of killing a person with full blown AIDS.
This is what Paul meant, (although the medical term HIV/AIDS was clearly unknown to him) in Romans 1:26-27.
I am aware of those “extreme believers” that use the term “sinner” in pride and arrogance, in an attempt to look their nose down upon people caught in the sin of homosexuality, but this is not the Spirit of Christ.
It is not enough to know that sin is sin.
We must also know that there is a way out of sin through the blood of Jesus.
I once was a sinner just like any person, but I am now saved by His grace. I’ve accepted His terms for salvation and am no longer an enemy of God. To be called a sinner is not for the purpose of being offensive. It’s not about offending. It is about Biblically calling those outside of the grace of Christ who they are.
It is also about extending a chance of reconciliation or exchange from being an enemy of God to be His friend. There is no way around it except to repent and believe the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
To repent means to turn completely away from that which the Lord hates and fully accept the eternal sacrifice of His Son to be saved from sin and the wrath that is to come.
When a professed believer calls another person a sinner, or tells a person that they’ve sinned, it must be done with the intent to get sinners to see the error of their ways, and help them to repent, and get it right with God.
It is about getting sins forgiven so you could establish a relationship with God on His holy terms.
Paul said in Romans 3:23,
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Because the righteous know what the Bible says, new believers are no longer called sinners. According to 2 Corinthians 5:17, we are now “…new creatures in Christ, old things have passed away, behold all things become new.”
You cannot be new and old at the same time. Based on the Bible, you are either new or you are old.
You can’t be both.
The purpose of being new is to do away with the old. When you have the new, there is no need for the old. Therefore, there is no need for sin. There is no need to sin.
Only then, will you have permission to sit at the table.
As I have said before, children of God do not impersonate sinners but sinners love to impersonate a genuine child of God.
LGBT sinners feel and believe that calling homosexuality a sin is harmful, can cause mental damage, and ruin a person’s esteem. Even to the point of psychological damage. They feel that to call homosexuality a sin is hateful or hate language, bigotry, discrimination, and it is defamation.
These terms, such as hateful, hate language, bigotry, discrimination, and defamation is about racial issues than with sin. Put my skin on for one second and you will easily, and quickly know the difference.
Really, they have misread the effects.
It’s called the fear of God. When there is a rejection of the fear of God, it turns into anger, wrath, and bitterness against God and His righteous standard. Their hostilities toward God further emboldens them to spew hatred because when you are told that what you are doing is against God’s will, in defiance, you try to tell God and His believers that they are wrong.
Again, sinners are not qualified to know, much less, understand the difference between good and evil.
Skin is skin, sin is sin.
LGBT sinners are in full court measure in attempting to use the Scriptures to justify sin. They, as well as sympathetic carnal believers, attempt to misuse, misappropriate, and misapply two passages of Scripture. Sympathetic carnal believers are renegade, rebellious, and are backslidden in their relationship with the Lord.
They are like some misguided people in human relationships.
On again, off again.
It is important that you understand that there is a difference between determining from the Word of God what sin is and criticizing a person with a critical eye. It’s also called “constructive criticism” (I call it destructive criticism) where a person looks at another person and see their flaws while being full of flaws within themselves.
To judge a person that has flaws while having flaws within him or herself is undoubtedly wrong.
The Lord, in Matthew chapter 7 gave the rules for this.
Verse 5 is the rule.
“First remove the plank (a stick of timber) from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck (a twig, splinter, or straw) from your brother’s eye.”
Notice the size of the objects.
In the eye of the person attempting to judge, there is a large object, meaning that there are many things in the person doing the judging. In the eye of the person being judged, there is only one very small thing to remove.
When you removed the stick of timber from your eye first, only then are you qualified to remove the twig, splinter, or straw from the eye of your brother.
How do you remove the stick of timber from your eye?
Stop doing what you are trying to get your brother to stop doing.
There is a Scripture that gives guidance as to how it is to be done among true believers of the Lord Jesus Christ. Please be mindful that this Scripture is addressed to those in the church that are true believers.
Sinners are not brothers or sister in the Lord.
Paul said in Galatians 6:1-2,
“Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
The Amplified Bible says,
“BRETHREN, If any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also.”
Destructive criticism is when you set out to do harm or hurt another person. In other words, you intend to damage a person to make them feel bad, not help them get their life together and be a better person in Christ.
Also, there is a difference between intentionally harming someone and receiving chastisement from the Holy Spirit by the Word of God according to Hebrews 12:4-17.
Therefore, the use of Matthew 7 and Galatians 6:1-2 is reserved for believers of the Lord Jesus Christ because Jesus used the term “brothers” and not sinners of any category.
Many of you recall the movie, The Perfect Storm, starring George Clooney, made in the year 2000. It was a story of fishermen trapped in a storm that converged from a series of storms to form one of the most devastating storms in history. In any case, whether true or not in terms of the actual events, at least in the movie, the weather machine broke. Giving them little chance to discern the weather conditions.
As a former qualified navigation supervisor and chart petty officer in the Navy onboard the USS Savannah AOR4, weather conditions determines everything. Normally, storms of this magnitude end up going towards the North Atlantic. I am really not supposed to be sitting here, as a side note. I know, at least on two occasions, of the power of hurricane force storms in the North Atlantic.
On my first major deployment, our ship came down rather awkward and immediately afterwards, we heard a noise unlike anything. Everyone was waiting for what would be next. As an inexperienced sailor at that time, I went about my business, standing watch on the fantail but I really shouldn’t have went about my business. I thought nothing of the event.
After returning to the dry-docks in Brooklyn, it was determined that we had a crack in the keel.
At anytime in that storm, our ship could have cracked in two and sunk to the bottom.
According to Wikipedia, “A “perfect storm” is an expression that describes an event where a rare combination of circumstances will aggravate a situation drastically. The term is also used to describe an actual phenomenon that happens to occur in such a confluence, resulting in an event of unusual magnitude.”
I do not think that anyone wants to overuse a word. However, when the Spirit of God tells us to use a word, who cares?
Major events have converged on the United States and we (the church) have yet to pay attention. The alarm has been sounding for years and all we have done is “token” address issues so no one is offended, or completely ignored them altogether. Then, we go back to business as usual and the people that sit in our churches sit like zombies.
We seldom believe that we offend the Lord when we have respect to the sins of the world. The very thing the Lord Jesus was sent to the earth to die for.
Literally, the church is the walking dead.
Many saints wish that pastors that know the issues would not bring it up.
There is a reason.
Your association with Jesus brought you out and you will have to climb out of your cubby hole called the closet or comfort zone, and be a child of God for a change.
The perfect storm of 9/11, Katrina, and The Economic Collapse, in the last 11 years or so, devastated this nation. There’s no question in my mind that the judgment of God was pronounced upon this nation because of these three major areas.
3. Covetousness or Greed.
All three of these is connected to sexual immorality.
During the economic collapse, the SEC, charged with watching for abuse, the mid to high level watchdogs were watching porn.
There is a difference between consequential judgment and end time judgment.
Consequential judgment is when you have committed sins and the Lord allows whatever judgement is necessary to come upon the nation.
End time judgment is the wrath of God to come.
Two things of note.
Precursor events usually leads to catastrophic events.
During the Clinton administration, we should have known something was about to happen when the President was caught in an embarrassing sex scandal. No need to discuss details.
Well prior to this, two prominent ministers were caught in a sex scandal.
Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart.
In more recent times, more scandals emerged (the late Zachary Tims, Eddie Long), which is an indication that the morals of preachers and political leaders (Jonathan Edwards) is extremely low. Hence, national morality is virtually non existent.
As a result of a lack of morals in the church, the LGBT agenda has overrun this country. Further evidence of this is that the United States is attempting to lead the way with money to get other nations to toe the line with the LGBT agenda.
In many states, the push to suppress righteousness and holiness and declaring righteousness, and holiness as hate language received much support from the legislative process but an almost mute response by the church to overturn hate crime or hate language legislation intended to silence the church.
Civil rights is already a right afforded to ALL Americans.
To isolate and protect one group (LGBT) engaged in homosexual sin while imposing severe restrictions and penalties upon the one place (the church) where morality is expected, is an egregious repression of rights of the highest measure.
What has happened is that the political world has taken advantaged of unfortunate incidences such as when bullying, assaulting, and suicides of practicing homosexuals got media attention, satan then used this as an opportunity to attempt to silence the true church.
Case in point.
Pastor Scott Lively indicated that in the last 50 years, we have seen virtually every nation (except Sweden) take a stand against homosexuality. Now, virtually every nation has hopped in bed with homosexuality. Gay Christian Movement Watch posted a 1 hour 29 minute video of Pastor Scott Lively that summed up what GCMWatch was preaching for quite some time.
YouTube pulled that video because it was considered “hate language.”
The new litmus test is your stand with sinful homosexuals or stand with a remnant of the righteous, or stand righteously alone for God.
The Bible is absolutely and unequivocally, or conclusive about where all persons that profess to know Jesus as Lord, must stand.
I firmly and unapologetically agree with Pastor DL Foster of Witness Freedom Ministries and Gay Christian Movement Watch that it is not enough to state that marriage is between one man and one woman. I firmly and unapologetically agree with Elder Raymond King of Securing Hope Ministry that it is not enough to state that marriage is between one man and one woman.
We must unhesitatingly declare that homosexuality is sin.
As Pastor Scott Lively pointed out (paraphrase), “God showed His displeasure of the abomination of homosexuality by judging Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone.”
All throughout the Bible, after the judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah, when you see in the Word of God two words, Sodom and or Gomorrah, we know that God is talking about the vilest form of sin known to man.
It is, without question or reasonable doubt, that God is against the sin of homosexuality.
If we fail to strongly condemn the sin of homosexuality, anything less is reprehensible, and we are adding fuel to the fire before we stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
The time for the church to tip toe or two step critical issues is over.
Political correctness doesn’t work where Biblical correctness is demanded by God.
It doesn’t mean that we act angry against the person and use non Biblical terminology against practicing homosexuals. Neither should we engage in or condone criminal acts of assault against any person caught in the sin of homosexuality. It means that we are prepared to stand strong in the gospel to communicate the Word of God in season and out of season.
As a side note. Wouldn’t it had been powerful if when somebody observed Lot and his family being dragged out of the city that they had the sense to ask if they could escape with them too?
Sadly, the love for sin killed them.
Jesus said in Matthew 10:32-33, “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.”
To confess Jesus before men is not just about saying that you believe that Jesus exists. You must show that you believe in the Lord Jesus by doing what the Lord said in His Word. A disciple of Jesus is not just one in word. A disciple of Jesus is one that adheres and does exactly what the Lord Jesus said (see Matthew 7:21-27).
When the moment comes to confess Jesus before men, it is not the time to check the convenience of the moment, or to determine if it will not cost you. If you are protecting sin, it will cost you. If you are avoiding conflict, it will cost you. If you are protecting your job, it will cost you.
Jesus said, in Matthew 10:38-39,
“And he who does not take his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.”
The Amplified says,
“And he who does not take up his cross and follow Me [ cleave steadfastly to Me, conforming wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying also] is not worthy of Me. Whoever finds his [ lower] life will lose it [the higher life], and whoever loses his [lower] life on My account will find it [the higher life].”
James, the Lord’s Brother, the Bishop of the church in Jerusalem said this,
“You believe that there is one God. You do well- Even the demons believe- and tremble!”
You see, what you do after you believe is the determining fact of true belief. Hence, you cannot practice sin, which is lawlessness, and righteousness at the same time.
So, when it comes to knowing the Lord Jesus Christ, you can’t say that you believe in Him and practice sin.
There are many people that never went to boot camp in the military, and never served in any branch of service. Yet, they get uniforms, medals, collar devices, and they don the uniform.
Today, it is against the law to intentionally wear any medals and military collar devices to fraudulently impersonate military personnel. Even for those that did serve, to wear unauthorized medals and collar devices, is reprehensible and dishonorable. Such fraud is looked down upon by those that faithfully and honorably served in the military.
Spiritually speaking, such is the same with homosexuals. Such is the same with adulterers. Such is the same with fornicators. Such is the same with watchers of porn and masturbators. Such is the same with sinners.
That’s why when you declare that you are a gay, adulterer, fornicating, bisexual christian, it is a complete farce. In other words, you cannot practice these sins and call yourself a believer. 1 and 2 Corinthians is all about separation, demarcation, and distinction.
The world must be able to tell the difference the moment you walk through the door.
Paul said, “Shall we continue in sin that grace abound? God forbid!”
Paul, by the Spirit of God said that “unbelievers will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
The works of sinners and the works of children of God are demarcated.
Children of God do not impersonate sinners but we find that sinners love to impersonate the righteous.
In the parable of the wheat and tares (Matthew 13:24-30), we see that the Lord reveals the condition of the field (the earth).
Verse 24 says,
“The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way…”
Notice that “…but while men slept…”
There is no doubt in my mind that the men belonged to the Man that sowed good seed. The men represents the church. Here, Jesus is telling us that the church fell asleep on the job and the enemy came in and planted tares.
The aftermath of the Perfect Storm is that there is wheat and tares in His field. If there is anything that we can learn from this is the fact that tares are only similar after it rises from the ground.
But before they are planted, tares are black seeds.
This is considered hate language according to LGBT.
Sexually immoral people are sinners.
On one particular FB page, many comments were made. Many people honestly believe that what a person does in their bedroom is nobody’s business.
Quite the contrary.
When it comes to Secret Sexual Sins, you must remember that according to the Bible, in particular Psalm 139, God sees it all. We tend to forget that God is Omniscient and Omnipresent.
Genesis 6:5 says, “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth…”
So the debris field is very simple.
Wheat and Tares. But there is a separation coming.
Finally, the last part of the definition of a perfect storm is striking.
“The term is also used to describe an actual phenomenon that happens to occur in such a confluence, resulting in an event of unusual magnitude.”
It is unusual for the church to be very silent. However, we are seeing other voices stepping up to the plate at great expense. Kirk Cameron and others have made some Biblical statements against the sin of homosexuality. It is unusual for sin to have a place at the table where legislation is easily passed but when it comes to the other issues to benefit the American people, partisanship exists, and there is a reason.
God brings to naught and brings confusion in the ranks of those that insist on sinning against God.
This nation is poised to be brought low to its knees. 9/11 was no fluke. This nation has had grace extended for the sake of God’s remnant. In studying world history, the average stay time of a super power is 200 years. We have enjoyed 36 years of grace.
The storm that no one is paying attention to is already swirling to a size unimagined. One by one, people are walking away from the faith for sin.
It has already happened in the church. It’s called apostasy.
The great falling away in America is under way.
