In light of many local churches and pastors becoming Gay Affirming Churches, we unapologetically declare the fact that we are an EX–GAY AFFIRMING CHURCH.
Paul said, in 1 Corinthians 6:11…
“And such WERE some of you. But you WERE washed, but you WERE sanctified, but you WERE justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
There are those that live in hopelessness unnecessarily. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides hope for those trapped in the sin of homosexuality. Through the sinless, shed blood of Jesus, by His grace, and mercy, you can experience new life in Christ to prevail over the sin of homosexuality.
The intent is not about heterosexuality. The intent is to help you, through the grace of God, to willingly move you from sin, to holiness, to help you become whole in Christ.
Even if you have an STD, or HIV/AIDS, it is not over.
The love of God is still extended to you no matter what you have.
Prevailing Word Ministries stands ready to minister to you no matter what you have.
Provided that you never lose hope, repent of your sins, and obey the good news of Jesus Christ. We are here to help you, and all who come to receive eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, as opposed to receiving the wages of sin, which is death, or eternal separation from the Lord forever.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church.
We believe that the Lord calls all sinners to repent, believe the gospel, and be saved.
That includes all fornicators, adulterers, homosexuals, bisexuals, catamites, sodomites, lesbians, and other involved in sexual immorality. His love, grace, and mercy is extended to all who repent and come to Christ, having their sins washed away by the blood of the Lamb.
We welcome all who desire to repent and be saved. Even if you do not want to repent, you are welcome to attend our local church to hear the unadulterated Word of the living God.
Those who practice sin are not excluded from attending our church, however, it is only through repentance of sins that a person can be saved, delivered, and set free from the bondages of all sin, including the sin of homosexuality.
The sexual immorality events that confront the church require that we make a Biblical statement so as not to give any hint of an appearance of condoning that which God condemned and declare as a detestable sin.
Also, it is folly to attempt to lower the stigmatization associated with homosexuality to lessen the sin of homosexuality to a level playing field. Sodom and Gomorrah is proof of what is in the mind of God regarding the sin of homosexuality. Few realize that any stigmatization practicing homosexuals may feel, is truly the convicting power of the Holy Spirit to convince the world of sin according to John 16:8-9.
As with all sinners, suppression of conviction is nothing more than remorse that will never turn into repentance until godly sorrow comes.
First, the Holy Bible is the infallible, inerrant Word of God.
To attempt to minimize, reduce, adjust, or alter the Word of God to exclude the sin of homosexuality is a bold and blatant attempt to question and put on trial the God of heaven, and His Word. To mislead people by using the Scriptures in making erroneous claims that fail the test of contextual or harmony of Scripture regarding the sin of homosexuality, is a misguided and miscalculated attempt to make it appear that God was wrong and sinful man was right.
The God of heaven and earth and the Bible was here before all of us, and should Jesus tarry, the God of heaven and earth, and the Bible will be here after us.
This brings about the eternally established facts that….
God cannot change. Malachi 3:6 says…
“I am the Lord, I change not.”
God cannot lie. Numbers 23:19 and says…
“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor the son of man, that He should repent.”
God’s Word is eternally established in heaven. Psalm 119:89 says…
“Forever, O Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven.”
Therefore, God’s position against all unrighteousness, including the sin of homosexuality, is clearly established. His position to redeem man is also established.
Second, the Bible is clear regarding the sin of homosexuality.
Leviticus 18:22 tells us that “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”
Many opponents of the Bible will attempt to assert that the Old Testament does not apply today because of the New Testament.
This is error.
Many will assert the flawed argument that the laws of the Old Testament were done away with when the New Testament was established. This fallacy serves only one purpose, the continuation of sin.
In the Old Testament, there were three types of law given to the children of Israel.
1. Moral. 2. Ceremonial. 3. Dietary.
The one aspect of law that carried over into the New Testament is “moral law.”
For instance, Hebrews 13:4 says, “Marriage in honorable among all and the bed undefiled, but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”
Therefore, fornication and adultery is morally wrong in the Old and New Testament. Because it is true that the sin of fornication and adultery is morally wrong, the sin of homosexuality is equally wrong as with all other moral sins.
Some will argue that nothing was said about God judging the sin of homosexuality after Sodom and Gomorrah. Quite the contrary. The aggressive tactics of LGBT extremists will go as far as the universe (if they could) to discredit the Bible and anyone that stands for the truth that is eternally embedded in the Word of God.
LGBT has concluded that the Bible is outdated, archaic, and no longer acceptable for the times we are currently living in. They declare that the church is outdated and need to catch up to the times the world is living in.
Quite the opposite is true.
Man is behind eternity and needs to catch up with God through repentance and receiving eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
The destruction of lawless people during the days of Noah and the destruction of homosexuals living in Sodom and Gomorrah, and the surrounding cities, was conclusive proof of God’s eternal abhorrence of all sexual immorality.
1 Corinthians 6:9 says…
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
The list in this verse declares that entrance will be denied to those that practice these sins.
Ceremonial law and dietary law were done away with according to Colossians 2:11-23.
Thirdly, consequential judgment is imposed upon all that practice lawlessness.
For sexual immorality, STDs come upon those that transgress Genesis 2:24 and Hebrews 13:4.
For those that practice the sin of homosexuality, Romans 1:18-32 clearly states that when a man or woman engage in the sin of homosexuality, they receive “…in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”
The Gay Man’s Disease, changed now to be known as HIV/AIDS is the “penalty of their error which was due.” The change occurred because of the negative stigmatization applied to those that practice the detestable sin of homosexuality.
As a result, collateral damage is upon the whole world. From children born to parents practicing the sin of homosexuality, or bisexuality, to accidental needle pricks, intravenous drug use, tainted blood supplies for blood transfusions, and other means of contracting the AIDS virus.
It is undeniably documented that the primary means of contracting the AIDS virus will always be MSM.
This is further evidence that the sin of homosexuality is an abomination or detestable because of the consequential results of such perversion.
Fourth, the error of declaring the sin of homosexuality a sexual orientation, racism, bigotry, or discrimination.
The Civil Rights Movement of the 1950’s and 60’s was about racial equality, not sexual orientation. Black people were denied basic rights that were already afforded to every person born in the United States. Segregation and Jim Crow laws were used to suppress Black people after president Lincoln gave the Emancipation Proclamation.
Sadly, and abhorrently, LGBT perverted and polluted the NAACP and other Black institutions by coercion and without any doubt, money, to see to it that the sin of homosexuality and those that practice this ungodly sin, has its place as those that are being discriminated against. LGBT successfully manipulated Civil Rights to the degree that it is no longer about sin, but bigotry.
Fifth, political correctness vs. Biblical correctness.
It is politically incorrect for God fearing people to preach or share that homosexuality is a sin as declared by God in the Holy Bible. In a politically correct world declaring homosexuality as a sin is hateful, bigotry, and discrimination. This is a cold, calculated attempt to silence the voice of righteousness so that the sin of homosexuality could be accepted as a normal lifestyle.
However, we all know that homosexuality is not normal because of the consequences imposed upon those that practice the sin of homosexuality. Furthermore, anyone living in America has equal protection under the law, but we all know that according to the Scriptures, marriage is defined as one man and one woman, joined in holy matrimony.
To afford homosexuals the right to marry is perversion. There is no question about what is being practiced in the bedroom of those who commit these sins. There is no question about the results and consequences that follow those that practice the sin of homosexuality, or for any sexual sins.
Therefore, we at Prevailing Word Ministries will err on the side of being Biblically correct and be politically incorrect. We much rather seek to please God than to displease God. We fear God than to fear man any day of the week, 24/7.
Therefore, Prevailing Word Ministries will always welcome those that are bound in any sin, including the sin of homosexuality, to minister to all with the truth of God’s Word in the love of God while standing firm, and immovable in the truth.
Prevailing Word Ministries will never apologize for standing in the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ, nor retreat from those that insist in aggressively pushing the LGBT agenda in an attempt to silence our righteous voice, and force this local church to turn its back on the Most Holy God and His Word, the Holy Bible.
Prevailing Word Ministries is an EX GAY AFFIRMING CHURCH.
GCMWatch and EXMinistries, as always, is front and center on this issue.
As you know Jason Collins announced his coming out of the locker room, excuse me……”closet” with his homosexual sin.
Here are their links to this breaking story about Chris Broussard’s stand on the sin of homosexuality. Chris’ stand seemed spontaneous, with holy passion, deliberately inspired by the Holy Spirit, and without rehearsal.
When you make and take a deliberate, intentional stand against the sin of homosexuality, and do it on international TV, you will catch it for doing it.
This was a “well done, good and faithful servant” moment.
In the GCMWatch piece that shared the second prepared response by Chris’, there seems to be a capitulation.
However, this tactic is known to happen against prisoners of war where you are forced to read propaganda in order to soften or redirect the bold testimony of Chris. As with all the heroes of faith, we need to pray for him that God would protect him and his family.
In the EXMinistries piece, the very pictures of Collins cross dressing while looking huh…..GQ is what LGBT loves. As cross dressers, it is just another form of homosexuality. Transgender men are nothing more than physically rearranged men surgically adjusted to appear as a woman. It will be shocking and stunning that should a man die in a woman’s body, what will they be resurrected as?
The answer is found in Matthew 19:4-5. In the beginning, He made them male and female. To change out of the flesh of man into the flesh of woman, the Lord will resurrect you to the resurrection of the condemned in the gender you were born with. Not in the gender you wish to have.
Anyway, we see that we need to speak without mincing words of the Word of God in the face of persecution without fail or fear.
Stepping into the firefight with LGBT is the kind of fighting that the Body of Christ is sorely lacking. There is no courage these days to take on the Goliath of our times. Sexual immorality. Like Saul, we sit in a tent on the other side of the valley, way on the other side so that we won’t hear the taunting of Goliath. We got armor for others to wear but we refuse to put on our own and go after that uncircumcised Philistine.
As the days progress, there will be fewer voices that will be willing to jump out of the foxhole and use their weapon. Battles are not won in the foxhole. They are won in the valley of the shadow of death.
There was never a safe place to speak the truth and sooner or later, the remaining remnant will be out in the open air, waging war like the gladiator days of old. Fearless. Courageous. Guts. Strength. Yup, just the way the Lord Jesus fought and won.
The LGBT community was waiting for this day to come. They are using every means of the media to push their wicked, perverted agenda. They are pushing in for a major assault. It seems that LGBT has returned to the tactics of battling the states for marriage equality.
There seems to be a strong indication that the SCOTUS will not rule favorably for marriage equality. It was expected that Proposition 8 be ruled unconstitutional and that certain parts of DOMA would be struck down to pave the way for homosexuals to marry and be recognized as regular married couples.
That’s why we are seeing some things happening behind the scenes.
How many of you know that the Lord is at work and that the prayers of the righteous avails much?
Every time you see something like this, it is a serious pursuit to legitimize the sin of homosexuality, but the prayers of the saints are at work in the earth and the God that hears our holiness in our prayers will never let any evil agenda overcome the church.
There are more announcements that will shock and surprise some. Just be at rest and be ready to stand for the testimony of Jesus. This is not R and R time. Rest is when we have finished the course and the race that is set before us. Let us, as Paul said, strive lawfully to receive the crown that fades not away. For the time is short, and the day is at hand. As James said, the Lord is standing in the door.
This is not the time to hold your testimony. Be ready to hold your head up and speak the Word of the Lord as instructed by the Holy Spirit. For the Lord will put His Word in your mouth, and you are charged to speak, what thus says the Lord. Only be courageous. Be bold and be strong, for the Lord your God is with you.
Finally, it was disheartening to see the POTUS and the FLOTUS be used like pawns to forward the evil, wicked agenda of LGBT and Planned Abortionhood. This is unbecoming of African Americans to be allowed at the table of power and be used to forward an agenda that further erode the African American community. The legacy of this president will be that he supported the systematic killing and destruction of his own race. Through the sin of homosexuality and abortion, the beast is being fed.
So if you are not appalled or disturbed that something could have been done to stop the genocide, look no further than yourself that voted him in office. You are just as culpable. Guilty by reason of association. Especially those that profess to know the Lord. You bear the greater sin because you could have seen this coming and not vote in such a way, that more lives are lost through this continuation of the ministry of death and destruction propagated by the puppet masters of LGBT and Planned Abortionhood.
Be sure that the Lord Jesus will not mince words for you when you stand there to render an account.
LGBT is at it again.
We all know that there is an agenda to culturally impose the sin of homosexuality throughout this nation. While it is no surprise that New York is one of seven states that legalized same sex marriage, because of one male and one male, or one female and one female cannot produce offspring, the only way to produce another generation of lesbians and homosexuals is to educate children.
After reading this article, (passed to me by my brother, Pastor Darren Butler of International Good News Fellowship), I had to address this.
Please click this link and come back for more…..
Through other means such as child molestation, priests and professed believers in Secret Sexual Sins, raping and molesting children, adoption, surrogacy, and artificial insemination, there is no other way for homosexuals and lesbians to replenish their depleting numbers.
When STDs and HIV/AIDS kill off people or at least side line them, they look for other ways to recover what was lost to sin and death.
When you see this, it is cause for alarm. If you have noticed, the parents were outraged that they weren’t informed of these activities. Parents are the only ones that have a right to teach their children about sex. However, when it comes to righteousness, we all know that the Bible is clear.
“Marriage is honorable among all and the bed undefiled but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.” Hebrews 13:4
“….Be not deceived. Neither fornicators, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
The world will always try to teach the people in the church what the Bible says, but they do not know God through Jesus Christ and they are not qualified to tell a child of God what the Bible says. You have to know the Lord and live free of sin to be qualified to teach people what the Bible says. The LGBT community love to use, pick and choose Scriptures to present their flawed, misconceived, and misguided positions to justify the sin of homosexuality.
Get saved, and redeemed, and keep free of ALL sins, and you can qualify to teach a child of God what the Bible says.
Until then, your incompetence in the things of God is showing.
God ordained marriage as the only institution where sex is permitted. The world advocates sex outside of marriage but look at the whirlwind of consequential judgment. STDs and HIV/AIDS. Pregnancies or what we used to call it back in the day, babies out of wedlock.
That is having babies outside of marriage.
“Fools! Because of their transgressions and because of their iniquities are afflicted.” Psalm 107:17, says.
The very act of defying parents, and teaching children sex at an early age where puberty is just getting started, only adds to the constant barrage of sexual immorality that is plaguing this nation. Sexual immorality is a clear and present danger to this nation. The church is presented with a major problem. As long as the church is silent on this issue, elected officials, people in our communities will press to have sexual immorality invade every aspect of life.
The devil couldn’t be prouder.
Parents, the first responsibility is to honor God. As long as the Lord is Lord over your life, you are safe. If you do not know the Lord, the Word of God, and stand your ground against the contrary winds of the demonic forces that influence the LGBT agenda, your child may get sucked under the current of sexual immorality.
I remember the 9 months that my wife carried our daughter. We got up together every morning except Sundays to pray over our daughter. When she got old enough for school, on the way to school, I would have her quote Scriptures. To this day, I honestly believe that if you pray over your child while the child is in the womb and then have them quote the Word of God, God will honor that Word and keep your child from falling prey to the deadly wolves of sin.
Parents, your second responsibility is to your child. You, under the hand of God is the only protection they have. If government gets a hold of your child, God only knows how they will turn out.
Government is not qualified nor competent to raise children, let alone tell a parent how to raise a child!
I know that there may be proponents of the LGBT community reading this blog, but it is clear that desperate times calls for desperate measures. Not on my part but on LGBT’s part.
It is clear that your agenda crossed the line. The line of the right of parents to raise their children. The right to refuse any senseless sexual immorality agenda to replenish depleting numbers. The right to refuse to register children in schools that impose any LGBT agenda on children without parental consent.
The right of parents to know what is being taught in schools, and the right to withdraw their child from classes that teach material detrimental to their family. Math is not detrimental. You need math. English is not detrimental. You need English. Science is not detrimental. You need Science. But LGBT agendas is a clear and present danger and is detrimental to families. Why?
Check out this link….
You could learn a lot from a chicken.
The school system isn’t competent or qualified to talk about sex education. Parents, one father and one mother, is qualified to raise and teach a child on sex education.
The audacity to steal innocence is reprehensible and extremely crude and cruel. In the strongest terms, I condemn this act of defiance. The sin of homosexuality, as with all sins of a sexual nature, is a deliberate intentional act of defiance against the known will of God. To further desecrate the innocence of children, we are faced with a clear and present danger of society dictating its evil will upon the design of family.
As a result, all that is being done is erode and imprison a child in the house of sin.
All under the false guise of anti bullying.
I’ve grown up in public school. I’ve been the victim of bullying. But never because of sexual immorality. It’s common, unfortunately for children to be bullied, however, to teach tolerance to children by getting children to accept the sin of homosexuality is not the best way to teach children not to bully another child. The education system had found a way to slip under the radar tolerance for the sin of homosexuality by teaching children about sin.
How stupid is this? VERY!
Education must be about getting our kids to understand the very basic skills required to live in this life. All sexual sins are detrimental to achieving the highest expectations required in life. That’s why good morals and discipline, as taught in the church is essential to the proper upbringing of children.
As long as parents are in the Lord, and they bring their child or children to Christ, as well as live the example of Christ before them, the LGBT agenda has no legs to stand on. Only the Lord knows what is best. Parents will do well to receive Jesus as Lord, attend a church where the Bible is taught and lived, where pastors, and their staff, are living the Word of God before the people as examples in speech, conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.
If you are just as outraged, you need to make sure that the school system work for you and not the other way around. The liberal agenda is bent on destroying the family. Only the Lord knows how to build up and strengthen the family.
I do not think that the Body of Christ is aware of the ramifications of this all important vote.
The Supreme Court Of The United States (SCOTUS) will be set to hear oral arguments on Proposition 9 and certain provisions in DOMA. I just read an article about what took place in Canada when a man passed out flyers that shared about the Bible being against the sin of homosexuality. Two homosexual men were offended and took him to court. The brother in the Lord lost the case and was fined.
A friend on FB posted this link and I believe that the Lord is warning the church in the United States of what is to come.
The Lord spoke to me about the election of 2012 that the election that took place paved the way for what is to come.
In the article above, I hope that you paid enough attention to note that should the Supreme Court strike Proposition 8 down as unconstitutional and strike down certain provisions of DOMA, the level of persecution of believers in Christ and pastors will exponentially rise to unprecedented levels in the US. In Canada, the courts have deemed preaching against the sin of homosexuality as hate speech.
This sets the precedence for persecution that would make the dark ages look like child’s play.
Free speech is about to be erased and we will be subjected to persecution. We must also understand that these are the last days. These are the days of Noah and Lot. We cannot be afraid of their faces. We must preach the truth regardless of the punitive damages the world imposes upon those who believe the Word of God.
It is interesting to note that oral arguments will begin one week before Passover.
The History Channel will show the miniseries called “The Bible” beginning 03/03/2013.
Oral arguments are set for March 26 and a decision by the SCOTUS should be reached by June 27.
Folks, this is no coincidence and the Lord was never caught off guard.
We must however, take note of the fact that since Canada is a dark place, the same darkness is making its way here in the United States.
As Jesus said, “The night comes when no man could work.”
Paul warned us in Romans 13:11-14.
“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lust.”
And this is exactly what the church in the United States has done. We are sleeping and this is the price.
When 50% of pastors struggle with porn. When 70% or more of professed believers struggle with porn. When 93% of African Americans voted to re-elect Barack Obama as POTUS. When 3% of the US population that is LGBT has a bigger influence on the immorality course of this nation than the morality influence of the church, it is clear that we are in serious trouble.
The devil doesn’t mind if we sing praise to God while we engage in sexual immorality. The devil doesn’t mind if we preach watered down sermons that has no conviction of the Holy Spirit. The devil doesn’t mind if we preachers with dog collars and miters on are Emotional Manipulators, Intellectual Manipulators, and Revelatory Manipulators. The devil doesn’t mind you having a “praise break.”
In fact, right in the middle of your praise break the devil is holding your hands and dancing right along with you.
The devil doesn’t mind so long as we never start living the truth before we preach the truth. In the church, you have many people that are quick to live in sin, curse God, and then turn around and praise God with you. You have many people that is attached to corporate organizations that fund the LGBT agenda. In more ways than you can shake a stick, the products that we purchase will have some connections to the money trail that fund sexual immorality. Just like the purchase of porn is a Seamless Connection to alcohol, drugs, prostitution, strip clubs, human trafficking, child porn and molestation, the simple purchase of certain items funds the agenda of LGBT and abortion.
The taxes that we pay, if the Lord could show the deep connections to worldwide immorality, we would cringe. However, somewhere down the line, we may only have had a hand in someone’s involvement in the sins of the world if we participated in purchasing sin. The disconnection that saves us is the fact that we have no direct connection to their sins, unless we did purchase porn or other sinful things.
The believer’s vulnerability is self inflicted and the devil took full advantage.
I say again, that the Lord was never surprised. He wasn’t surprised with Samson, Saul, or David in their sins.
So He is not surprised with ours today.
After reading of the imminent possibility that the 31 states that placed in their state constitution an amendment protecting marriage between one man and one woman is in jeopardy, that everyone knew that there was something up the sleeves of LGBT. The Spirit of God always warn me that something is going on. The thing that I haven’t been able to get is what is that thing that is going on that I don’t know about yet.
When it is just too quiet it is an indication that something is about to happen.
Well, the Bible tells us “When there is peace and safety, then comes sudden destruction.”
It is not a coincidence that around Passover, we are seeing these issues come to head. And for the most part, it is getting to the point that we are so comfortable being tied to the posts with our eyes out like Samson is too comfortable. It is dark outside and getting darker. We are reaching the apex or culmination of the end of the ages. The only thing that the Lord told us to do is to be ready.
Jesus said, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
We do not know when the Lord will come, that is why we must stand and occupy until He comes. This is no time to pack our bags. This is the moment to stand in the face of opposition and speak the truth. We will not run. We will not hide. We will fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life. We will not buckle under the pressure of persecution. We will not look for the convenience and comfort, and safety of the inner sanctuary. What is to come must come and we must be prepared to stand for what is right.
Remember Revelation 21:8. Cowards have no place in the kingdom.
This is the valley of the shadow of death and we are to fear no evil, for He is with us.
Let’s stand and fight.
Luis Leon, Episcopal Priest, Will Deliver Obama’s Inauguration Benediction, Replacing Louie Giglio
Many of you are saying that he is just giving a benediction. It will be a benediction that God will not hear. The prayer may have well been addressed to the devil himself.
Psalm 66:18 says, “If I regard iniquity in my heart the Lord will not hear me.”
You cannot practice sin and practice righteousness at the same time. This is the very thing that many preachers and believers know based on the Word of God. You cannot live in sin and expect God to accept you in the condition of sin.
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 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!”
If you try to tell this to anyone in sin, they will tell you that you are full of hate, but here is the thing. You try to tell God to accept your condition unconditionally when the Lord sent His Son unconditionally to save you from the condition of sin you are in.
Notice what Paul said in Romans 5:18-21.
“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.”
You see, salvation’s purpose is to change your heart.
“The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked,” Jeremiah 17:9 tells us.
It’s the condition of the heart that the Lord is after, but man refuses to have his heart changed so they reinvent everything that God initially instituted so that what man makes conforms to his own dark heart.
There is a clear intention to weaken the church by finding weak willed leaders to accept sin in the church. From bisexual pastors to perverted bishops that are open homosexuals. They want to have God but they do not want His Word of righteousness and true holiness.
So there is a double effort to reduce the pillar of truth into a pile of rubble while erecting a “church” according to their liking. This church must have teeth. The State Church of LGBT must have governmental power to exist. That’s why there has been a concerted effort to engage in politics, rewrite Civil Rights, suppress the truth, silence the truth through the legislative and judicial process, and infiltrate political power by being elected into office.
A man once said that the most powerful preachers were Black. There is no question that there are many preachers across the globe that are not African descent are just as powerful. There is no question in my mind that some of the greatest preachers also were Anglo Saxon and other races. If you look at African history, many firsts were achieved.
However, we see that in some African American preachers today, there is an unwillingness to confront the issues of our day from a Biblical perspective. We find that many are comfortable talking about issues that would better our people (prosperity gospel, motivational messages, coaching) but we fail to realize that sin is detrimental to any race.
Proverbs 14:34 says,
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”
As Paul said, “Woe (doomed) is me if I PREACH not the gospel.”
I’m not called to motivate or coach. When God spoke to me and called me into the ministry, He called me to PREACH!
Sadly, some have accepted the sin of homosexuality and relegated it to Civil Rights. Sin and Civil Rights are two separate issues. The Blood of Jesus has removed sin. Man must accept his race and learn to be mindful that no matter what your race is, the love of Jesus bridges the gap.
Some African American pastors are not quick to speak against sin but very quick to deal with race issues.
Many have abandoned the call of God to enter into the political arena. The one thing that helps people is to have a change of heart that the gospel of Jesus Christ provides through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. We preachers have come to find out that not many people want to turn from sin and sometimes, discouragement sets in and such discouragement drives us from the pulpit.
In most cases, it drives many to Secret Sexual Sins to appease the lack of satisfaction in making a gospel difference in people’s lives. People are hard to minister to because of a variety of issues and challenges that many people face. We pastors tend to forget that we cannot fix everything and we cannot change anybody.
With this, a vacuum of power and influence was left wide open. In many of our White denominations, many have forsaken the way of the Lord. Intellectually, they have reasoned that God has changed and are now incorporating LGBT principles in their churches. Joseph Ward calls it, “progressive.”
GCMWatch.com, a while back sounded the alarm about gay denominations emerging.
In progressive minded church people and leaders, LGBT has found weak willed leaders that became sympathetic to the sin of homosexuality. Some that resist are called bigots, racists, discriminant, and other racial slurs that African Americans are accustomed to use when confronted with racist people.
Predominantly, and sadly, White homosexual folks have taken on our plight. As I would say, put my skin on for one split second and then you will know what true racism is all about.
There is a difference between sin and skin.
One person put it like this.
“When I walk outside, I did not come out of the closet another color. I walk out as a Black man. You do not have to ask me about my “orientation” of skin color. When I walk out that door, you can easily see, without a shadow of doubt, that I am a Black man. But when you need to know if I am straight or gay, you have to ask because the pigmentation of my skin generally tells you my ethnicity. My skin color doesn’t tell you anything about my sexuality.”
In a nutshell, Joseph Ward said that “Christians are consistently becoming more visible advocates for full inclusion of our LGBT neighbors.”
I and many other true believers have not become one because of our immoveable stand on the standard of the Word of God. Moving from the Word of God is non-negotiable according to James 4:4 and 1 John 2:15-17. We will be glad to lead you to The Lord, but I will not let you lead me from my Lord and Savior. The progressive thinking of sinners always lead people astray and away from The Lord to commit perverse acts that is prohibited in Scripture.
It’s amazing that people want to change God instead of being changed by God. They always claim that God is wrong and behind the times, when people in their reprobate minds are wrong and behind the times.
Catch up to the way God thinks.
Joseph Ward also said, Christianity does not have to be exclusive of LGBT equality, and when it is, people are leaving the church.”
He really wanted to say Christ does not have to be exclusive…
You can’t make this stuff up. LGBT, you can’t have the righteousness of God and be in the condition of sin. As Jesus said, “You must be born again!”
Therefore, we who believe the written inerrant Word of God dare not progress from the God who gave it.

Washington National Cathedral now performs same sex marriages. In the African American churches, gay bishops are emerging in record numbers. One by one, we are seeing catholicism enter the ranks of African American churches to give these bishops legitimacy in ministry.
However, we all know that God is not pleased and God never approved such things according to Leviticus 18:22, Malachi 3:6, and Romans 1:18-32.
They do not see that the place at the highest political table is just a token. The real power behind the White House has controlled what we see.
It is amazing that only 2% of the American population is homosexual, yet, they are able to wield power as if they are a massive majority that dares to be challenged. It reminds me of the Wizard of Oz where a short man behind the curtain is so insecure of himself that he needs loudspeakers, smoke, and people fearful of him to be accepted.
Such as it is with LGBT. They want to be able to steamroll their way into the political system, overthrow the faith of many, and establish their own State Church. These are telltale signs of the end of a superpower. Just look at the book of Daniel and every major dominating power rose and comes to an end.
Psalm 75:6-10 says this….
“For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, and exalts another.
For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is fully mixed, and He pours it out; surely its dregs shall all the wicked of the earth drain and drink down.
But I will declare forever, I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. All the horns of the wicked I will also cut off, but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
Notice also what Paul said in Acts 17:24-31.
“God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.
And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said,
For we are also His offspring. Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising.
Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
Take a good look at the Inauguration. Babylon is emerging. In order for a new world order to emerge, a superpower must decline.
Spiritually, morally, economically, technologically, educationally, and militarily.
While some states are holding out and establishing their hold against same sex marriages, we are seeing LGBT impose their end around game. If you think that the incident at Sandy Hook High School is just an isolated incident, it sparked outrage regarding guns in the US. So much so that many in political circles desire to change the 2nd Amendment.
The founding fathers, in their wisdom saw that if you take the weapons, you rule the people with an iron rod. Such as it was with Germany in 1938. Such as it is in North Korea. When a people have no weapons to defend themselves, it is inevitable that the people will be ruled with an iron fist.
The founding fathers knew that one day America would attempt to make changes in the Constitution and they set a very high bar to prevent drastic changes from taking place easily. However, if you see them make changes in the Constitution, then it is very easy to set it aside. That’s why when you see a usurping of a document that exceeds the wisdom of men today, it’s because Babylon is sure to emerge.
All of these things are interconnected because this is the end times.
So do not be surprised when the State Church of LGBT gets a stronghold in the United Staes.
Just be ready as Jesus said, “For your redemption draws nears.”
The commercialization of December 25, the man made day of the birth of Christ, distracts from the real reason of the birth of Christ.
We all know that the actual birthday of Jesus is unknown. What we do know is that the birth of Jesus was necessary. Genesis 3:15 was the Lord God’s declaration to forever redeem man from his sins.
Those caught in the sin of sexual immorality know that the birth of Christ is indisputable. However, few will acknowledge the real purpose. The Lord God said, after Adam and Eve deliberately disobeyed the commandment, not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.”
Another paraphrase says….“From now on you and the woman will be enemies, as will your offspring and hers. You will strike his heel, but he will crush your head.”
The phase…“He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel” is a judgment pronounced symbolically on the devil’s head.
But the crucifixion is the place where the devil would bruise Jesus’ heel. The seed and her Seed, is the hostilities that would take place between the spiritually dead and those that would accept Jesus as Lord and become righteous.
The clash of the unrighteous against the righteous is seen everyday with those trapped in the sin of sexual immorality, in particular, with LGBT. When the righteous seek to speak the truth in love, the righteous is called “bigots, intolerant, and discriminating.” The usage of these terms is an attempt to persuade the righteous to back off.
For what lies ahead for sinners in eternity, we choose not to neglect to warn every man.
Yet, they want to use the Christ of love to continue in the very sin He came to set us free from.
Jesus is not just a prophet or great teacher. John the Baptist announce Jesus when Jesus came to be baptized in the river of Jordan. “Behold. The Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.”
Jesus came from heaven to earth to die for your sins.
We do not hate anyone that is caught in sin. The objective of the child of God is to offer the love of Jesus that saved us, to set free the bound and heal broken in heart. To liberate and set the captives free. To bring hope to the hopeless, and power to the powerless. To never spew hatred towards anyone, including those trapped in the sin of homosexuality.
Our purpose is to offer true love and salvation from the power and guilt of sin. To deliver you from the power of satan to the power of God. To help you overcome sin and the shame connected with committing sexual immorality.
Even Jesus despised the shame of being mistreated to free you from the shame of sin.
The Bible also tells us that Jesus was “…tempted in all points like as we, yet He didn’t sin.”
You mean He was tempted to be a homosexual?
If the devil tempted Him in the wilderness for 40 days and if the Bible says that He was tempted in ALL POINTS, then He was tempted, but He didn’t yield to any sin.
LGBT. Just know that we love you. God loves you. We love you enough to tell you the truth in love and to help you to see the Savior and understand the real purpose of the birth of the Savior.
Since sin entered the world and death, women are constantly engaged in hostilities from the devil. From the sex trade, thanks to human trafficking, to acquiring STDs, pregnancies that end in abortion, to a husband’s infidelity, women have experienced many horrible things.
The enmity or hostilities are enormous but through it all, the Lord provided redemption and deliverance through the sacrificial offering of Jesus’ sinless blood. The Father provided His Son because He loved us. The Son was sent to rid the world of sin. The Father demonstrated His love in a way that no man could love a woman, nor could a woman love a man. Sex and all it’s “love” is no match for the true love of the Savior.
Man’s promises of fulfilling love always fall short but God’s love is eternal. God meant His love for you.
If you are looking for the promise of fulfillment and love in sex, you will not find it. Everything that you need is in Jesus.
Love, peace, affirmation, acceptance, value, worth, esteem.
Jesus was given as a gift to man, wrapped in swaddling clothes, but more importantly, wrapped in flesh with sinless blood to purchase men for God.
All of these things the Father gives as a gift to us, courtesy of the birth of Jesus.
A lot of heads are hanging. Some have even shed tears about the future of this nation.
But in many states, jubilation.
The one thing that struck me is that when sin is permitted, and there is jubilation over the righteous, it is an ominous sign that these are the last days.
So, what was really accomplished?
Many that professed to believe in Christ went crosswise of the Word and suppressed the truth to vote for Barack Obama or for Mitt Romney.
Sadly, many that voted against the president were disappointed.
Many evangelicals thought that by voting for Mitt Romney, a devote Mormon, sort of, kind of endorsed by Reverend Billy Graham, that America would see some of the things enacted by President Obama reversed. While the election count was not a mandate in the popular vote, the Electoral College vote makes it seems like there is a mandate on the Democratic agenda.
If you take a good look, this election wasn’t just about the re-election of President Barack Obama.
Behind the scenes, we have seen three states affirm gay marriage, marijuana legalized, and condoms to be used on porn sets to protect against STDs and HIV/AIDS. It’s not an opinion. It is a fact that all condom use circumvents the consequential judgment attached to the sin of fornication and adultery. The secondary use of condoms is to prevent conception, thus fostering the climate for sexual perversion.
Note what the Lord Jesus said about adultery and fornication in Matthew 17:19,
“For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.”
This is the same Jesus that the world seeks to worship but stay in sin. This is the same Jesus that the world wants the church to be like. But the way the world wants the church to be like is completely different from what Jesus said in His Word what His church is to be like.
I think it was Ghandi that said, “We do not have a problem with Christ. We have a problem with you Christians.”
If we who believe in Christ is adhering to the teaching of Christ in following the Word of God about deliverance from sin and living holy lives, then it is not we that is the problem.
It is you.
We cannot help but testify of the overcoming power of the blood of Jesus and the deliverance from the power and guilt of sin.
Besides, the world can’t tell believers how we are to be like.
John 1:12 says, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:”
To believe on His name is confirmed when you do what He says.
For 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 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!”
John further confirms a true adherent of the Lord when he said this in 1 John 5:3…..
“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments; and his commandments are not grievous.”
The church has “One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism. One God, and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”
But the Father is not the Father of sinners. The devil is the father of all sinners.
Notice what Paul said in Ephesians 2:2-3….
“…in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.”</strong>
So their spiritual nature dictates what the mind and flesh does, in obedience to the spirit that works in the children of disobedience.
This is also called “the law of sin and death” (see Romans 8:1-2).
The world wants the church to be tolerant of sin. In what the Lord Jesus said, there is no tolerance of sin. In what the Lord said here, He identifies the source of all sin.
Notice what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10……
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
This is just to remind all who intend to sin that the world doesn’t own God. And the world doesn’t own the child of God. And the world doesn’t have a right to dictate to the true believers of the Lord Jesus Christ what we are to believe, how we are to believe, and to keep silence.
On the contrary, we will continue to shout it from the house tops. We will not flinch nor fail in our responsibility of living and preaching the unadulterated gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. And we will not speak in hatred. We will not act unbecoming of a child of God. We do not hate sinners. We do not despise the unrighteous.
Our fight is against those that stand against against the truth. No matter what practicing homosexual or lesbian groups have in store in terms of their agenda. No matter those that affirm or assent to the sins of fornication, adultery, and bisexuality. We know the source of these vile passions. They are demonically and diabolically inspired.
Therefore, we hate the devil and his demons. We hate the evil one. We hate the devil with perfect hatred.
Paul said, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, and against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenly places.”
This is a spiritual warfare that requires that the church, under the direction of the Head of the Church to wage with the weapons of our warfare which are mighty in God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down reasonings and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.
You can write up all the laws for sin you want. We are in the last days and the Lord already set in motion the end of it all. The world has no control over the throne of God, and they, sure enough, do not have control over the God who sits upon the throne.
MIGHTY IS OUR GOD!
At His own time and choosing, He will bring this all to an end.
So for those that are still trying to make sense of this past election, just know that the Lord was never caught off guard.
The events that are present, and before us must surely come to pass.
Remember. These are the days of Noah and Lot. We all know what happened in those days. Just read Luke 17. We know that the church will continue to lose its influence because we live and love sin so much more than the Lord.
Yet, there is a remnant that will not bow their knee to Baal, or the devil.
We will not let man dictate to the church what the church is to do or believe. The world doesn’t dictate to the Head of the Church. Now, mind you that the world and the devil would love to get rid of the church. That can’t happen because the devil can’t do anything about the true believers in the church. He can only sit there and watch like a spoiled brat.
I remember that I am the Lord’s child before I am an American, and before I am a Black man.
As a born again child of God, my future in Christ is eternally secure. So my head never hung after the election count came in. While watching the election, there was no doubt about the outcome. When you have inside information from the throne of God, you never sigh.
That’s why I love the Lord and keep His commandments. I am a doer of the Word and not a hearer only.
As far as the rest of the church that is straddling the fence,they love to sound like they are so close to the Lord but when you look at what is really going on in your life, your testimony may be shallow at best. People cannot actually discern the difference of Christ in your life. The way you talk, text, watch TV, speak crudely and cruelly. There is no love for the brothers and sisters in the Lord.
The spirit of apostasy will take out more “so called” saints. They will walk away from the Lord because they do not know how to endure to the end. They will contend with the Bible and the true saints of God. They will reason their way over the Word to continue in sin. They are on the fumes of grace. Some are on the fumes of mercy. Many, sadly, are living like the foolish virgins. Spending all their money on other things and like before, they will look to bum oil for their lamps off the wise virgins.
But I got news for you. You’ve bummed oil for the last time.
For the true church, let’s get back to being busy for the Lord. We’ve worried too much about America, not realizing that America is just a country that we believers in Christ occupy temporarily. We must remember that the course is set and there is nothing that we could do to alter what must come to pass.
We must remember that we are ambassadors for the Lord. The local church is His embassy. We are here, journeying through. While we are on this journey, we try to win as many as we can to the Lord, for physical death, should Christ tarry, is inevitable. The judgment soon to follow.
We must remember that when we are trying to save a nation, we must ask a the question….“Why?”
Isn’t the task before us to make disciples from these nations?Have we forgotten the first and only job of the church is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the power of God unto salvation. We have taken a page out of the apostles in asking Jesus if He is going to establish a kingdom and pull the Jews out from Roman dominance. In all actually, the Christians are looking to change the politics so that we can have our bed of ease and not confront the sin in and outside the church.
My… have we forgotten Daniel’s prophesy about the last empire and the everlasting empire that cannot and will not ever be destroyed?
If we really look at it. Are we trying to prevent what must come to pass or are we putting patriotism over Christianity? Are we directly interfering with the etched in eternity plan of God for America? Like Nineveh, perhaps we might repent like Nineveh. They repented. The whole nation in sackcloth and ashes, with fasting, but they were eventually destroyed. Or are we trying to save our culture from the inevitable? It’s the same with the prosperity message. Are we duping ourselves into thinking that the economic events of our times is just for a short season or is it judgment on the monetary system because of covetousness?
Then when you really look at it, why is the church so impotent when given the opportunity to be a solid testimony to the world, and our modern day prominent preachers are wimpy and live compromised lives? And you know exactly who I am talk about! Some sit next to Jezebels and high priestesses on their talk shows and bow to their gods of gossip and sin. Mixing with the world instead of taking a page out of Moses and Elijah to vehemently curse their shows as well as offer an altar call right on their show.
There is a lot to be done. So, if you have shed a tear about the election, it is time to get up and fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life. It is time to be salt and light in the earth. Stop looking at America like it is the church. It is not. Believers of the Lord Jesus Christ make up the church. And God is not surprised by these events. Let’s move from the place of mourning to the place of walking in the will of God and “Preach Until Sinners Hear.”
Credit for this quote goes to Pastor DL Foster.
Do we really know what it means?
Do we really have a clue?
I watched a video that was posted on FB that was disturbing.
A group of pastors sitting around discussing the sin of homosexuality, how sin is all in their churches. And they have compromised, capitulated, and conceded defeat to the devil.
THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!!!!!
One said that if weren’t for homosexuals, there would be no music. Another said, that he didn’t have a problem with homosexuals in leadership so long as they were “repentant.” Another said that this sin is from the pulpit to the door. One pastor kept using the word “slip or slipped up.”
We’ve gone from an Eddie Long train wreck, to mistake, to slip up. When will we call it sin? Because sin demands repentance, confession, forsaking or laying aside sin, forever.
Filled with a lying spirit, heretical Carlton Pearson said that if homosexuals don’t come to church the church would be empty.
Well at least the church would be clean.
What kind of stupidity is that?
HERE’S IS WHY?
There is no conviction of the Holy Spirit. Get it? HOLY SPIRIT.
Holy Spirit left an unholy place.
If you are comfortable with sin, you are uncomfortable with God and His convicting Word.
Let me point something out. God wants all sinners, practicing sinners to come to the church but not to be comfortable with their sin.
With carnal sinners this is what happen in our churches; you to upchuck vomit and then eat it again. And then upchuck the same vomit and eat it again, sometimes smiling.
Turn from your wicked ways. He didn’t say keep on turning.
As I was talking with my brother in the Lord, Pastor Darren Butler, of International Good News Fellowship, both he and his lovely wife, Pastor Patricia Butler are the pastors there and by the way, it’s rare to find a pastor who happens to be a holy, sanctified, consecrated, married, music minister.
He said when the world takes one step forward, the church takes three steps backwards. Any way he started talking about hell. And it struck me further that the church is off message.
“There is no fear of God before their eyes””,” the Bible says as Pastor Roger Jamison would quote.
They think hell is comfortable. Hell is nothing but torment that awaits them. We warn them that hell is not a comfortable place.
It burns with fire and brimstone forever. Wickedness was paid for at the cross on the body of Jesus. His sacrifice is the only sacrifice that will save a person from hell.
They are not convicted of sin.
This sort of concession is the very thing that must be avoided.
Just because the people fail to live according to the Word it doesn’t mean that the Word failed.
A spirit, a lying demonic spirit entered their mouths and they are now lying devils like a dog by the fire place. You can’t confront sin because some of them look like they are in the sin themselves. If not homosexuals themselves, they are definitely in some form of self gratification, fornication, masturbation situation.
SAY IT OUT OF YOUR MOUTH….I HATE SIN! TELL THE DEVIL THAT YOU HATE SIN. YOU HATE WICKEDNESS. YOU HATE EVIL. YOU HATE THE DEVIL!!!!!!
BUT I LOVE GOD. I LOVE RIGHTEOUSNESS. I LOVE PURITY. I LOVE SANCTIFICATION. I LOVE HOLINESS.
I wonder how they would exegete John 5:14, 8:11, Romans 6:12-14, 1 John chapters 1 and 2, and James 4:4.
It seems that not one of these so called pastors had their Bibles. No one opened up the Scripture to see what the Word said. Not one of them.
You know what is next?
I REBUKE THEM AND VEHEMENTLY CONDEMN THEIR FALSE JUSTIFICATION FOR ACCEPTING THE SIN OF HOMOSEXUALITY AND EVERY OTHER SIN TO HAVE SAFE HAVEN IN THE HOUSE OF GOD.
They were wise in their own eyes.
I don’t know how recent the video was made but these pastors were pastoring churches in the Tidewater area of Virginia or it’s vicinity. If you know anything about the Tidewater area, it’s Norfolk, Suffolk, Portsmouth, Hampton Roads, Virginia Beach.
If you are in the Tidewater area, AVOID THEM LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!
You think I am joking. Click this link….http://youtu.be/oiAx6ingTTM
For the most part, we know that at the beginning, when sin was introduced, Adam and Eve never repented. All they had were excuses.
Sin by Adam and Eve:
Adam and Eve: Oh oh. We naked, let’s cover ourselves. Oh man…what are we gonna do… God is coming…quick, let’s hide over there.
God: Adam, where are you? Who told you that you were naked?
Adam: “The woman You gave me.”
Eve: “The serpent beguiled me.”
The devil had no excuse.
He left the serpent to be punished but we know in ear shot, the Lord made sure that the devil got his in Genesis 3:15.
In all of this, there is only remorse and excuses.
Not even a hint of “godly sorrow that works repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted…”
There is no other way to deal with sin.
People caught in the grips of sin are always looking for a loop hole to continue in sin but there is no loop hole when it comes to sinning against the Lord. Yet, we try so hard to make a way to find a place where we can sin and make God accept it.
God is merciful but God isn’t stupid.
God is gracious but He isn’t stupid.
There are many people that call me and several other people “Pharisaical.”
Or that we are “self righteous.”
For 33 years, I committed the sin of masturbation. For 10 of those years, from 1998 to 2008, I was a porn addict that intensified the fuel and fire of sexual addiction in my flesh. Since the call of God upon my life on Saturday, September 7th, 1979 till 2009, the sin of masturbation dominated me.
And because I made provision of the flesh by returning to the vomit, masturbation relapse occurred. It’s because I was stupid and didn’t apply the Scriptures. Then the Lord said to me, Remember to “put it all together.” Love Me and hate sin. And you will never sin that sin again.
Put it all together means put what you heard from God to work on all cylinders.
Level one sex addict.
Guilty as charged.
Entering the pulpit, was a pastor that couldn’t repent but found a way to abuse God and His grace.
You can’t preach about holiness with lust in your heart.
You won’t preach about holiness because you can’t. So since you can’t preach about holiness, you cannot expect the people to live holy. So they enter the church and are comfortable about it. You know that your sin is safe because the pastor’s sin was safe.
I never really preached on righteousness, except the perverted way of connecting walking in righteousness with prosperity ONLY, not with pleasing the Lord in walking in holiness, which is complete separation from living the way the world walks.
Righteousness is not about a reward system for being a good child of God.
Righteousness is about standing right with God. Righteousness is about right thinking of God. Righteousness is about relating rightly with God in spirit and in truth. In unbroken fellowship with God. Not on the level of Adam but on the level of how Jesus relates with the Father.
The relational revelation of the Father and Son is an eternal example of what the Lord desired in man.
You can be in the world but not of the world. Jesus proved that point (see Luke 4:1-13, 2 Corinthians 5:21 and Hebrews 2:17-18, 4:12-16).
When you repent and break free of these things, the power of God is always there. Not to enter sin again but to help me to be free from it forever.
It’s just that I never repented.
My sexual needs were more important than the God of my salvation.
My love for masturbation and lusts of the flesh drove my every move.
I didn’t care about how God felt because my needs were more important than His will.
What was important was that I got off.
Excuse after excuse fueled my passion for fulfilling the desires of the flesh and the mind. This hypocrisy was going to end one way or another. Either in continuation of ministry in righteousness or in Pharisaical hypocrisy.
So if anyone wants to call me a Pharisee, call me one because my righteousness didn’t exceed the ones the Lord Jesus talked about. If you are going to call me a Pharisee, call my one because I was a hypocrite. But if you are going to call me a Pharisee, it can’t be because I now live the truth about the Word of righteousness and now can command with all true Biblical authority people to repent and leave their sin behind according to Hebrews 12:1.
Recently, the accusation of being a Pharisee was a clear indication to me that when you are dealing with exposing sin, you will be called some things that make you scratch your head. Peter did say do not be surprised when you are persecuted because of doing right. Never suffer persecution as a murderer or thief.
When you are dealing with sin and repentance, preachers are held to a higher standard.
There are many pastors that watch many people come to church in search for help. Deliverance from SSA, adultery, fornication, pornography, masturbation, bisexuality, and fetishes of a sexually perverted nature. There were stories of women that were in adulterous relationships with their pastors and they refuse to break away. They know that they were home wreckers but they never find the place to repent and break the soul tie.
Their supposed world of love and connection to a male was more important than being connected to God. And fearing a disconnection, it would plunge them into the despair they seemingly came out of. The fear of loneliness and the feeling of low self esteem because they believe the lie of unattractiveness, pressures them to pursue an “anointed” man of God.
First, it is sin. God is grieved.
Second, never mind your personal needs. You hurt God.
Your needs is your needs, but God was violated. You need to start by repenting. Then to make your repentance real, pack your things and leave that pastor or whoever. Shacking up has nothing to stand on and is unjustified.
Sin can never be justified.
Sin will cause you to bust hell wide open.
Your needs take a back seat to the heart of God and His Word.
You were not created for your personal pleasures. You were created for His pleasure because Revelation 4:11 says, “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by your will they exist and were created.”
We were created at the pleasure of the Lord.
In the book of Ezra, the nation of Israel came out of captivity and they brought foreign wives with them. The men were told to put them out. The recognized that they needed to put God above their needs and feelings.
The foreign women were put out.
To please God, there are things that you got to put out to make things right with God if your repentance is going to be real.
The rules of experiencing the power of redemption always begin with recognizing that you hurt God.
You violated the Word of God for sin is lawlessness. You took advantage of the grace of God and revolved. You weren’t serious about breaking free. You were just trying to find peace from the conscious fact that you sinned.
That’s why He put it in the Word of God because no matter how many ways you come up to try to have it your way and disregard God’s way, what is going to stand at the end of the day is three things.
1. God is faithful to His Word.
2. God never changed.
3. God never lied.
That’s why man is always trying to discredit the Word because if you can discredit the Word, you can discredit God but at the end of the day, the Bible stays the same.
The God of the Bible and the Bible was here before us and they will be here, should Jesus tarry, after us.
Today, we see the same thing.
We see that error was done and people are forced to render an account or act so big to repent.
We look to excuse our way out instead of repent.
Does this sound familiar JCAAPB?
When the earthly ministry of the Lord Jesus was about to take place, John the Baptist, the forerunner of Christ, the “Elijah” that was to come both heralded the message.
We rarely hear this in our pulpits because we preachers are scared to tell people that they need to repent. In a nutshell, repent means, to turn. But what we have done is that we are provided elasticity to repentance.
We look at one portion of Scripture and we say, “It says this but I don’t think it means that.”
Since when we are allowed to change the meaning, the contexts, the way the word “repent” is used in the Bible?
Who in the world do we think we are?
Granted, we all have sinned or fall short of the mark but when you hear preachers and pastors sit around and expand the definition of repentance, we are in trouble.
In Matthew 15, the Lord said that the Pharisee changed the commandment because of their traditions. In other words, they decided that since the commandment is a problem. The spiritual leadership refused to enforce the commandment of the law and people were allowed to sin at will because the priests refused to do the law themselves.
Evidence was the message that the Lord preached in Matthew 13 in that He called them hypocrites. Living one way and intentionally living in sin.
For repentance to be real this is the benchmark of repentance.
“He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever CONFESSES (1 John 1:9) and FORSAKES (Hebrews 12:1) them will have mercy (Hebrews 4:16).
They don’t preach this stuff like they used to.
But the Lord is raising up Course Changers that will not flinch or capitulate. Who will not bow their knee to Baal. Who will stand to please God and be true to Him at all times in unbroken fellowship.
Are You One?
It is sad when you watch practicing homosexuals hijack the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and reduce it to legitimize the sin of homosexuality. I take no joy in this exposure of epic proportions.
Thanks to the vigilance of GCMWatch.com, we are constantly apprised of watching institution after institution falling and rejecting the gospel of Jesus Christ in it’s purest form. But by the blogs and other timely pieces of reporting by GCMWatch.com, we are also informed as to the kind of erroneous doctrine, so twisted that you have to be literally on drugs and alcohol to miss the truth of the Word of God.
The whole purpose of the gospel of Jesus Christ is total freedom of all sin through the life, death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is Biblically evident that as time progresses, living against sin and the devil’s evil is becoming a thing of the past. To live above reproach and to live holy is considered by some to be obsolete and impossible.
People are living in sin, and they do not care what the truth is, and it starts with the leaders.
As I was watching a video of the late pastor John Osteen on a FB link by Selena Mosley of Equipping For Change Ministries, John Osteen mentioned something that was powerful that the Lord. When it came to the sins of Israel, God always dealt viciously with the priests, princes, and prophets that failed to walk in the commands of the Lord.
And the Lord constantly looks for people to stand in the gap and pray that God would have mercy and spare the people.
We are seeing a failure in current Christian leadership because in our private lives, sin is easily concealed by our personality and we purport the ability to appear before people as holy.
Nothing could be further from the charade.
Our secret sins are before the Lord, and God is continuously exposing sin in unimaginable ways. But before the Lord exposes, He uses people to warn them before the sword falls. This intercession is prayer but when God puts this stuff on the Internet, it is another form of warning before the sword falls.
We do not mind the risk of reputation because we know that we stand a greater risk of being denied by the Lord Jesus Christ before the Heavenly Father. We stand a greater risk, knowing that the sword is about to fall and we say nothing.
It is not about “personal attacks.”
It is about letting the truth be the only course to pursue. Tirelessly, we have watched these developments unfold and we are seeing the truth come out. As painful as it is, if we do not address these egregious actions, more institutions will capitulate. And many people and more institutions will fall, regardless, but we are still responsible to warn before the sword falls.
What denomination will cave in to the pressure of the demonic puppet master LGBT?
Many Christians have already swallowed the deadly poison of lies spewed by those who desire to hold in its grip wavering believers that don’t know the truth of the Word.
In the quest for the truth, Pastors DL Foster, Dwayne Loughridge, and I went direct to their FB page and requested clarification about the turn of events in this precarious incident.
You can’t make this stuff up.
We never made any attack statements. All we wanted was clarification of a publicized position about the Joint College of Bishops being against the sin of homosexuality and then, make an intentional egregious compromise to allow a practicing homosexual to be a part of this “prestigious” institution.
What’s also disturbing is that Bishop Ellis of the Joint College of Bishops issued a direct statement made toward us that… “If you want to help me “IMITATE ME,” with “SILENCE!!”
In plain parlance, sit down and shut up.
With LGBT precision, they want us to keep quiet about an institution that pledged on their website not to allow practicing homosexuals to be a part of their institution, yet make a clear compromise of a Biblical principle.
We did not start this fight.
It was of their own doing, and like the World’s Dumbest Criminals Caught On Tape, a picture brought into question the integrity and credibility of a supposed Christian organization of Pentecostals.
It started with a compelling picture of O. C. Allen, a known practicing homosexual, wearing the insignia of the Joint College of Pentecostal African American Bishops.
They say a picture can say a thousand words, but this picture said one word.
I purposely went to the website of O.C. Allen’s church site of Vision Church and he was titled as “Bishop Designate.”
If you want to be a Bishop, make up your own homosexual insignia and call it a day. But no matter what legitimacy agenda is pursued, there is only one thing that is legitimate.
Homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22.
That, you can take to the bank and cash it, full face value.
O. C. Allen was already ordained, but not by the Joint College of Bishops, and you will see all this on GCMWatch’s site.
For a full understanding of this unfolding story please click this link….
Then go to this FB link of the Joint College….
Be quick about it because they may take swift action, LGBT style.
However, we have carefully documented and applied a copy and paste on our FB pages. Whenever there is a conspiracy and they want people to be quiet, they will go to great lengths to block people from getting the truth.
Chick Fil A Appreciation Day was a defining moment in world history.
While it is the right of American citizens to protest, remember, Chick Fil A Appreciation Day was not a day of protest.
The LGBTQ community will have their “protest” and they have a right in America to do so.
But just because they have a right to protest, it doesn’t exonerate them or justify them and the sin of homosexuality.
The Bible is still the same and the Lord is still the same about all sin.
One more thing.
The love of the Lord for homosexuals, lesbians, adulterers, fornicators (porn), bisexuals, and all sinners is the same too.
They may or may not believe that the Lord and true believers in Christ love them, but we cannot make them come to Christ just as they cannot make us accept the sin of homosexuality.
For the most part, we do see serious and egregious statements made by extreme radical LGBTQ people as well as extreme radical overzealous people that claim to be Christians.
Many people, carnal Christians too, believe that preaching and living against sin is inconsequential. And many believe that the maladies associated with sin is not going to happen to them but the numbers (which I will not get into) speaks for itself.
Christians were asked by former Arkansas governor, Mike Huckabee to show “appreciation” for a Christian organization to make a concerted stand on Biblical values that teach that marriage, as ordained by God, is between one man and one woman according to Genesis 2:24. And that the sin of homosexuality brings reproach and judgment upon a nation according to Proverbs 14:34.
This statement was made by Mr. Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick-Fil-A and it resounded.
All across America, people came out to support, not protest, an organization that cherish and support family values etched and evidenced in their own personal family lives.
As a result of glorifying God, the benefits in a downturn economy is being reaped. Chick-Fil-A doesn’t work on Sunday so that the families that work for Chick-Fil-A would have a day of worshipping God and rest. As a result, records for their fast food chain were broken.
And yes, even residual tax revenue will be passed to some struggling city economies. God knows how to bless His people that honor Him and His Word, even in the face of fierce opposition from those that love their sin more than they love God.
Why was it necessary for a statement of this magnitude be made?
Take a look around you and you will see unemployment at 8.2%, for African Americans, 14% to 16%. And for Latinos, it’s around probably 10%, more or less. Drought is hitting the Midwest hard. The system of greed is still in place. The housing crisis is showing very small signs of recovery but banks, in their greed mode is not lending and they have tightened restrictions.
The existing homes in foreclosure is putting a damper on the economy. The property tax collections is hurting the overall state and local economies.
Europe is about to capsize, and you know it.
Going back to the banks, they still think that people will pursue credit and their system is rigged to swallow what little paycheck you have left in hefty interest rates.
Already, the Fed Chairman, is looking for banks to have 7% liquidity in the event of another financial crisis. Federal law require banks to have 2% liquidity.
This is only an indication that they know another recession is about to hit and Europe is about to go under with long term repercussions affecting the whole world, including the United States.
You can’t be the richest nation on earth with a 13 trillion dollar deficit with China holding the American economy hostage with our debt. It’s like a large cruise ship is taking on water and only one person has a bucket, trying to scoop the water out while saying, “We are not sinking.”
The abortion industry is still killing 1.2 million babies annually and their funding is evaporating rapidly.
Corporate jobs in the private sector is not flowing freely as before. Kids coming out of college will not find jobs for which they carry degrees for. Saddled with student loan debt and credit card debt before they could get a job, is forcing them to look at other alternatives unimagined. Cuts across the board in pay, pensions, medical, dental, and other benefits is hurting people all across the board and now you see the reason behind Obamacare.
Even the military has tighten restrictions on admitting below standard civilians and with reason.
It used to be easy to get into the military in a downturn economy but now, the nation’s military only want the best qualified candidates.
Here’s the reason. Less trouble. Trouble people in the military decreases military readiness. Trouble people in the military decreases “good morals, good order, and discipline.”
Isn’t this a joke now that DADT is repealed.
Trouble people is defined as the combination of out of shape and low education standards civilians.
The military spends billions on training and equipment.
The greatest resource of any military power is the soldier, sailor, marine, and airman. If they scrutinize more, it’s because they want to spend more time training the right mentally and physically fit person. There is no more under the radar civilians getting a free pass.
If you are looking to get in, do not try “Just barely.” The military is looking for civilians that will exceed standards to maintain the military edge over potential adversaries.
For the military, that means less jail time, less dropouts, less trouble people all across the board. So if you wonder why you didn’t make the cut, it’s because the military has raised its standards. And don’t even think that you may get to stay if you are in.
If you are below par, retention is not as easy as you think.
They will let you go in a heart beat if you are underperforming.
Even the drug trade is experiencing a significant decrease in revenue.
When you have major drug cartels fighting each other with ferocity, it’s serious. Just recently, a drug cartel beheaded three rival drug cartel workers on the border of Mexico. It is a clear indication that the United States is still demanding drugs on an unprecedented scale, but nonetheless, at a slower demand pace.
The competition for dollars is fierce. It used to be that they would negotiate and settle the issue amicably. Not any more. Greed is greed and there are no rules in covetousness on the depraved indifference level.
The combination of a downturn economy, and semi effective drug interdiction.
Record billion dollar deficits is hurting the states and they are looking for ways to squeeze every dollar, including obtaining concession from union workers as well as increasing work production rules.
Less money to staff first responders such as fire, police and other emergency service personnel. If a natural disaster were to hit in the United States, it would hurt no matter where the disaster takes place.
The state tax revenue that once was there, is gone. Just ask the mayor of Chicago. Right now, for him and any other mayor, God did him, and the other towns that have a Chick Fil A franchise, a favor. And they should be thanking God that the little extra tax revenue helped. Not to mention residual tax revenue.
Just take a look at Detroit, Michigan. Thousands of houses are empty and certain sections have become dumping grounds for murder victims.
The education system is more concerned about teaching children sexual acts of homosexuality cloaked in the “tolerance” teaching, subjecting innocent children to sexual perversion. Preparing the next generation of perversion.
Not to mention pedophiles, criminal sex addicts, child molestation, serial rapists, and other forms of lewd criminal behavior. This includes those that use their professional position to access vulnerable people and abuse them sexually. Including pastors.
Are we sure we want to educate children on the perverted ways of homosexuality? Knowing that this door is the door that further the moral erosion of families?
WHAT BROUGHT THIS ALL ABOUT?
Selfish Individual Needs.
Many want to lie to you and tell you that homosexual love is equivalent to heterosexual love. This is never the point. It is smoke in mirrors. It is about the commission of sin. A violation of the Word of God. The willful disregard of the Word of God. Sin is the blatant act of hatred against the known will of God. It is the transgression of the law. Sin is lawlessness. Sin is what Jesus died for.
THE DEFINING MOMENT IS THE ACKNOWLEDGMENT THAT MAN HAS SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. AND MAN’S ONLY REMEDY IS THE CROSS OF CHRIST, REPENTANCE AND THE RESURRECTION POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, CALLED THE NEW BIRTH.
The late Dr. Lester Sumrall preached a message almost 10 maybe 15 years ago about the economic experiences and conditions of our time. That sin is inextricably connected to poverty. Scriptural authority for the statement, Romans 5:12.
The change of course in the morals of Christians and sinners in this nation demanded a defining moment.
Wednesday, August 1, 2012, was that defining moment.
The promotion of sin is never in the best interests of people. For sin is defiance of God.
The church didn’t help prior to this because of its dirty laundry of double standards that precipitated the homosexual agenda. For years, homosexuals sang, played keyboards, and preached without opposition. Not to mention the fact that adultery, fornication, porn, and self gratification is still rampant in the church today. Pastors are involved in more sex scandals than at any time in it’s history.
Internet accessibility has made it easier to tap into porn, masturbation, setting up sexual rendezvous, and other connected sins. Pastors are bringing the world of sin right into the pulpit from their homes.
The evidence is when they are asked to make a stand against the sin of homosexuality or any sin, they can’t, because chances are, unless you know them, they are in bed with Secret Sexual Sins.
If they aren’t in bed, they are preaching soft Christian messages that fail to challenge the child of God today to live sanctified, holy lives, free of sin. They are still preaching “Christian light” messages that fail to bring people to a place of conviction of personal sin and repentance before God.
Unless I am wrong, we have yet to hear these “heavy” preachers stand with Mr. Dan Cathy. But they won’t. A defining moment in history for the church must be taken advantaged of. Personal kingdom and empire building is for the dead birds. For once, we need to see these people stand for something meaningful and not for themselves to improve their legendary rock star of preachers status.
Some of them are so afraid of losing people that they steer clear of controversy intentionally. That’s so they don’t offend the biggest contributors that sit in their churches, giving away thousands. It’s tough preaching in an empty church but if you got a crowd of sinners, and you do not bring them to the altar in true repentance and giving their entire lives to Jesus, it’s no different.
It’s a shame when a known prostitute, based on a documented interview said that prostitutes sit in a known west coast mega church with ease. They sit near their clients and their client’s wives during service. Why? No conviction messages about the holy presence of the Lord. Why? Because perhaps, the pastor is a client. You never know these days.
Some of you know full well what your pastor is up to, yet, you still go to their church and listen to their hypocrisy. The worst kind of hypocrite is a pastor. Just read Matthew chapter 23 and Ezekiel 34 and you will see it.
What I am getting at is that the church has made a statement but if our statement has the hint of Secret Sexual Sins, we are hypocrites of the highest order. And that makes satan proud.
We must now look at ourselves through the mirror of the Word and make drastic corrections to bring our lives up to the standard of the Word of God and stop being hypocrites.
Many have accused the Body of Christ of not feeding the poor and sheltering the homeless. These accusation are powerful if we are not doing first things first. “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness…” But I also find that statements about feeding the homeless and ministering to the needs of the poor are distraction statements designed to shift the focus of attention off this issue of sin.
Folks fall for it all the time and when we forget about sin, it doesn’t matter. God is concerned about your heart attitude toward Him and He can feed you any and every day. But when you die, which would you rather have?
The salvation of the Lord or a full belly going to hell?
Cold. Not really. Especially when you have an expiration date which make food and shelter almost a muted point.
We must seek God in righteousness first and then minister to the needs of others. And this could be done simultaneously. But we can no longer look the other way and sin at will as the world.
The worst thing that we can do is stop seeking God and seek to please LGBTQ’s accusation.
More defining moments are ahead of us.
What we do after this is the true defining moment. Will lives be changed by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ or are we satisfied with this one display of Christian camaraderie? Are we going back to our cubby holes or will be choose to be salt and light in the earth. And yes, would we be daring enough to invite sinners to sit at the table and feed them, clothe them, house them, and minister the gospel to them?
We should never be a social gospel alone. But we should never look the other way after we came out and made an open display.
Let’s work on our out of the spot light defining moments.
It starts with coming back to the Lord in true repentance. It continues in the true family nucleus. One man, one woman. Marriage. Not alternatives. Not substitutes.
It continues by teaching our children Biblical values that promote righteousness, not sin.
It is solidified, nurtured, and cared for within the local church.
Perhaps, by changing the way we do business, the church would once again be a place where God’s convicting power be ministered, lives would be changed, and God would be glorified.
Are we up to the challenge?
