LGBT Insurgency Christians & Churches: Only A Look

Several decades ago, the late James Cleveland, a practicing homosexual, sang a song called “Only A Look.” Years ago, as a young child, my late mother would play his albums or listen to his songs on WWRL in New York every Sunday Morning.

Part of the refrain of that song was, “Just one look, would turn you away from sin.”

Sadly, this powerful song never rang true in his heart. Some would dare to say that I shouldn’t judge a dead man. The way the Bible teaches is that either we are dead in trespasses and sins or we are dead to sin but alive unto God (see Romans chapter 6).

The Bible is clear about hypocrisy.

Living a hypocritical life while claiming to be walking in the light of the gospel is the worst kind of hypocrisy. Such was my life until I repented and left the sin of porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation behind me forever.

LGBT false pastors and pretend churches that are popping up all over the place serve as a reminder that if you are going to talk about God, the Bible, and church, you cannot claim to be looking at the Savior and be involved in the sin the Savior came to save us from.

You cannot claim to know Him, sing to Him, lift your hands to Him (lifting up unholy hands with wrath and doubting) and kiss and have man to man, woman to woman sex. Let alone fornicate (porn), adultery, or be bisexual.

If you were to take a real look at Jesus like Thomas did, it wasn’t just the remarkable, undeniable fact that He was resurrected from the dead but the scars on His body is emblematic of the price He paid to redeem us from sin.

Just one look at each nail scared hand.

Just one look at each nail scared foot.

Just one look at the hole in His side.

Just one look at the blood trail of Jesus from Pilate’s pretorium to Golgotha’s hill.

To ignore looking at Jesus as He is, only underscores how intentionally blind people are to what He went through to save us from sin. We look at a clean Jesus before He died and we freeze frame Him there. But there is a bloody side of Jesus. A side that speaks volumes of what He went through to die for our sins.

Remember what John the Baptist said before Jesus was baptized in the river Jordan….

“Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”

Hebrews 12:1-2 says,

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

The “let us” are the believers that became truly born again, having given up the life of sin, but fell into temptation and yielded to sin.

There is a difference between being an apostate and a carnal Christian.

An apostate (see Hebrews 6:4-8) is one that despised their salvation, has walked away from Jesus, and cast aside His salvation forever to return to the house of bondage forever. The person no longer claims Jesus as Lord. Apostates fit the profile of Esau. Esau gave up his birthright to Jacob and Esau lost the inheritance or blessing.

Incidentally, Esau was a fornicator and profane in his living (see Hebrews 12:16-17).

In other words, he was sexually immoral.

Fresh from the Holy Spirit.

If you are an apostate, you are no longer hypocritical. That’s because when you left Christ for good, you are doomed.

If you claim to be a believer in Jesus, but you were never born again, you are a sinner that has yet to be saved. You are neither a hypocrite or a believer. You are an impostor, pretender, or fictitious representative (hence, gay christians and gay churches). Make believe child of God fits the bill. It has hints of hypocrisy but the difference is that you know what a real child of God is but because of a love for sin, you refrain from becoming a genuine child of God, and you know what a real sinner is.

If you are a true believer in Christ but you constantly yield to temptation to sin, you are a hypocrite when you say you have no sin, but you commit sin, hence….

a carnal Christian is one that yields to temptation and fall into sin while attempting to practice righteousness simultaneously (see Luke 811-15 and Romans 8:1-17). You can’t be both and you can’t practice both at the same time. Your mind must be made up. This is the prodigal son attitude. Prodigal meaning wasteful. Eventually, the prodigal son returned and his father welcomed him with open arms and a kiss.

The insurgency of LGBT into the church is to attempt to legitimize lesbian, gay/homosexual, bisexual, transgender sin.

As long as the true church of the Lord Jesus Christ is here, we might as well preach and live the truth. It is not enough that we preach against it, and live against it. The hand is always out to reach into the flame and pull as many out as possible before it’s too late.

For the flame that many will be cast into, no man will be able to reach into it.

I am aware that many worry about offending those in the sin of homosexuality. Worried about offending people by declaring homosexual sins as an abomination. What the Lord is doing is that by His Word, He is letting us know how He detests the fact that what He created has turned to perverseness.

If we do not understand what God thinks about sin, any sin, then in our unregenerate minds, we believe that the Lord is fine with sin. And that’s the LGBT agenda, which is actually satan’s agenda.

God was never fine or “ok” about sin.

So while we preach the Word, we must use the same position of God. God detests sin. God hates sin. God does not like sin. God declares sin as an abomination. So to come out from being against God, we need to be born again.

How?

Only a look. Just one real look at the real Savior, will turn you away from sin.

LGBT & Gay Christians: Why Inclusion Is Important To Gays

When the traditional churches searched for ways to renounce the Biblical stand against homosexuality, it was an opportunity for homosexuals to openly practice sin while attending and participating in church.

There is a reason which we will explore in a moment.

The stigmatization of being a homosexual and the shame of this sin appeared to have lifted. Many people in the church view homosexuality as a sexual orientation, and not a sin. It is to be understood that for years, homosexuals had to keep quite about their sin.

Hence, the term, the closet.”

Make no mistake about it, homosexuality according to the Bible is sin. Just like cheating on your wife is a sin. Just like lying is a sin. Just like fornication is a sin. To exempt or exclude homosexuality and lesbianism is just slight of hand.

Then why is inclusion so important to gays?

For years, the church failed to address this issue in line with the Bible because a wide range of issues were already before the church and pastors.

Issues such as, heterosexuals shacking up outside of marriage. This is a polite term for two persons living together in fornication. A more colorful term would be “playing house.”

Issues such as….male pastors engaged in homosexuality, bisexuality, “sleeping with Sister Susie Q and Brother man at the same time.”

A wide range of promiscuous predator pastors would sexually take advantage of women, regardless of a woman’s emotional state. Because he had a lustful eye and heart, it was just another day at the office.  Thousands of women’s lives would be destroyed because a pastor couldn’t remain faithful to his wife because he was a wanderer.

According to the powerful book, Betrayal Of Trust, pastors would fit the profile of either a predator or a wanderer.

On the other hand, according to Proverbs chapter 7, a wide range of immoral women would come to church just to “test” the waters to see if a pastor would take them on. These immoral women would wreck homes. End up pregnant and either have the love child” to force the pastor to walk away from his wife, or have an abortion, and walk away in shame and disgrace.

Some might never darken the doorstep of a church again.

Music ministers would fornicate or engage in homosexuality, or bisexuality. With regularity, women in the church choir would be their victims or young boys would be molested. Music ministers would also be involved with porn and self gratification.

These uncontested issues left the church in a precarious situation.

The precarious situation is the fact that if the church is in sin, the all sin is permitted. If sin is already in the church, then the sin of homosexuality is permitted too. Therefore, I am allowed to sit at the table.

Inclusion without confrontation seemed like the best compromise.

What this means is that “everybody is saved. Come right on in.”

No need to renounce sin. No need to confront sin. No need to repent. No need to say the sinner’s prayer because we are not sinners anymore. Everyone is a brother and everyone is a sister. And if you want to be bisexual or if you are transgender through surgical and hormonal procedures, it’s alright. All are welcome because we are all God’s children.

In a nut shell, because Jesus died for everyone, no one has a right to exclude anyone because Jesus loved us all. You are automatically recognized as a believer. You believe in Jesus, right?

Well, come right in. You are a brother and sister in Christ.

As a side note about sister lesbians…

According to P4CM (Passion For Christ Ministries), in an interview, a former lesbian revealed the rules of lesbianism. Both women cannot be women. One has to play the male role.

The male role is called a “beard.”

Short haircut and male clothes, with strong male cologne, Or feminine cologne that has a strong masculine scent. In most union ceremonies, both cannot come in wearing a wedding dress.

I’m not trying to be funny. I’m just stating facts.

My good friend, Elder Raymond King of Securing Hope Ministry has a picture of two black men posing for their wedding picture. One is dressed in a regular tuxedo. The other homosexual who was much shorter, was in a semi tuxedo with a train like on a wedding gown.

Inclusion is important because there is no stigmatization, no sin, no shame, no remorse for two reasons…..

1. Remove harmful language including what the Bible says.

Inclusion is permitted because the “harmful language” of the Bible no longer exists. And because you are included, there is no reason for a loving God to send you to hell. You are not condemned. You are all God’s children. You are completely forgiven.

This is a lie.

When something is not declared a sin, there is no need to be forgiven for anything. It’s only when sin is pronounced that there is a need to ask for forgiveness. But because homosexuals are included, there is no need to be forgiven. Why? Because homosexuality is not a sin.

There is a major problem with this….

The God of the Bible never changed up.

And when a person is told that they are wrong based on the established Word of God, just because you disagree with the Word of God, it doesn’t mean certain passages of the Scripture automatically disappear or are rendered null and void.

2. All mankind are brothers and sisters in Christ because God loved us.

God demonstrated His love in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. To be a brother or sister in Christ, you must renounce the very thing that Jesus died for. The problem with inclusion without true renunciation and true repentance is that all they want is Jesus’ love. Just leave what I do in the bedroom, or in whatever room, off the table.

It’s none of anyone’s business. Including God.

Sadly mistaken.

The business of forgiving our sins begins at the cross of Christ. It ends on a sinner’s bended knees to the Lordship of Jesus, in total submission to the will of God to relinquish the life of sin.

This love is always there for all people, however, Jesus just didn’t come to spread His love and we just leave it at that. Jesus came to die for our sins and God raised Jesus from the dead so that we can have eternal life. Eternal life is not just about living eternally or living forever. It is about living as God created us to live eternally. Living like God is living according to His characteristics.

God is holy. So incorporating His consistent characteristic, which is done by accepting Jesus as Lord, and adhering to His living Word, allows a person to live eternally.

The only way to get into the kingdom is by being born again.

Two things happened at the death of Jesus.

First, sin was placed on Jesus and God condemned sin in the flesh of Jesus.

Second, the ordinance of death that condemned every man was removed, however, man must agree to the terms of redemption and be reconciled to God.

In condemning sin in the flesh of Jesus, the power to hold man to commit sin and the guilt (the awareness that you are guilty) of sin was removed. This is called justification. God knowing that you deserve death, released you from the penalty because Jesus took your place. However, you must relinquish the will to continue in sin.

You cannot agree to commit the very thing He sent His Son to release you from. It doesn’t make sense to tell you that you are free to go after you’ve murdered somebody just to go out and continue to murder.

The new birth gives us the power to rule over our lives never to commit sin, the very thing that Jesus came to set us free from.

Inclusion is just another crafty word that gives you permission to call yourself a believer without conforming your life to the Lord Jesus Christ according to the Word of God. A true believer lives a changed, transformed life without needing to sin ever again.

Inclusion allows for sin to be committed without being transformed into the Person of Jesus Christ. In other words, one is permitted to live any way they want to live.

Because the church lived in some measure of “inclusion” by living in adultery, fornication (porn), self gratification, bisexuality, lesbianism, homosexuality, and bestiality found it’s way at the table.

The removal of all shame and stigmatization is only found in Jesus. It’s found in renouncing all sin.

The closet is a dark place when the door is closed and no one sees inside. No one except the One who died for you to set you free. The guilt and shame of sin is what keeps many in the closet. However, we understand that even when you attend homosexual churches, you do feel some sort of freedom, but not the kind of freedom that you would fully experience when you come out of sin.

In many of you, you suppress the depression.

The desire to be accepted and loved by God is intense. The desire to do what you do while God accepts you is what all LGBT people want because they cannot separate the fact that sin is against the will of God. There would be no point for Jesus to die for sin if we are permitted to continue to sin.

But anarchy and to live in open rebellion against the God of heaven cannot, and will not happen. Just imagine heaven filled with sin all around the throne of God. The objective is not to push homosexual back into the closet. The objective is to show them that there is freedom in Christ from sin.

The noise of hatred must never drown out the true love of God. The noise of hatred must never drown out the truth of God. The noise of hatred must never cause you to shrink away from the love of God that is extended to every person.

Never let the pain of hatred that you have suffered from misguided people be the motivation to hate God and His Word. Sadly, reverse hatred because of a love for sin has being released to pervert the Scriptures. Reverse hatred has been the rallying call to label everything, including the Bible, as hate language.

To remove certain passages of Scripture, to attempt to rearrange the original context of the Scriptures, or changing the Scriptures to fit our life of sin cannot happen because Someone (God) is right, and all men is wrong.

God never asked you to like truth. God commands men everywhere to repent.

No one likes to repent and turn away from something that may be pleasurable, but when it comes to getting into the kingdom of God on God’s term, repentance is the least I could do. And if you choose not to repent, there must be a separation because sin cannot be allowed in God’s kingdom. God relentlessly hates sin and that’s His position.

The moment you accept the fact that the Word is right is the moment that true peace in Jesus comes.

Sexual Immorality: Discrediting The Integrity Of The Church

When Job went through his trials, he had three friends. His friends had a lot of wisdom but some of what they were sharing was misdirected. Too often, the sermons we preach to people may or may not be preached to the right people that need to hear it.

Every now and then, we do come across some truth that is evident in one of Job’s friend named Eliphaz. It seems that he had a lot of knowledge but no real wisdom and discernment to direct such knowledge to the right person.

Have you ever had a mail person constantly deliver the same piece of mail to your mailbox and it wasn’t addressed to you?

It’s not that the mail person is not competent. It could have been a force of habit. When you see a name that is similar or there is sometimes a mental lock, sometimes mail or anything will be incorrectly delivered until something supernatural happens.

You ask a question or series of questions to make sure that what you are delivering is to the right person. As a note, if a message is not resonating and witnessed by the people, by the Spirit of God, sometimes it is good to stop and reassess the situation.

Eliphaz didn’t have this kind of discernment.

The whole gist of the book of Job is about the troubles of a man that was caused by the devil. The friends of Job, Eliphaz, the Temanite, Bildad, the Shuhite, and Zophar, the Naamathite all came together to mourn and comfort Job (see Job 2:11).

They didn’t recognize him and began to cry aloud, rip their clothes, and throw dust on their heads. For seven days, they didn’t talk to Job because they observed that Job’s suffering was “very great.”

After seven days, Job’s three friends begin to pour it on him. They all thought that Job committed sin and was being judged.

Far from the truth.

Chapters 1 and 2 reveal that the devil receive permission from the Lord to try Job.

Job didn’t know that it was the devil that brought calamity, and while it is true that he didn’t blame God, Job ascribed the trouble and trials as an “act of God.”

Job didn’t know that his integrity is what the devil wanted to discredit.

The devil cares less about your car, house, children, money, and other items. He wants your spirit, soul, and body to hate God. The devil wanted to get Job to curse God for taking all these things away, including his health.

God blessed Job and the devil said that if you would take it away from him, he would curse God. satan wanted to get at Job and he couldn’t because the Lord protected him with a hedge. It was only until the hedge of protection was lifted that satan had his opportunity.

So there is a principle.

As long as you treat God right, the protection of the Lord is upon you. As long as you do what God said to do in His Word and maintain your integrity, the devil will also look for a way to discredit your faith in God. And if or when these things are somehow taken or destroyed, because you love God more than the elements He blessed you with, you maintain your integrity.

You keep praising God.

The efficacy of the integrity of Job is what this story is about.

In many places in the United States, such an attitude is prevalent. In other places, it’s business as usual. The people of the church has yet to discern that the integrity of their faith is being tried. At the same time, people do not realize that sexual immorality plays a significant roll.

If the church is compromised because of Secret Sexual Sins, by default, our testimony is discredited.

Job had no Bible. No Jesus. No “authority.” No blood of Jesus. And with his three “friends,” no intercessors. Yet, he knew how to walk in sexual integrity. He didn’t open the door of calamity upon his life because he lost sexual integrity.

It was because of Job’s end to end commendable integrity that the devil sought the Lord to lift up all protections. And should the devil had been able to kill him, the devil would have done so when he saw that Job would not curse God.

Job 31:1-12 says,

“I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a girl. For what is the allotment of God from above, and the inheritance of the Almighty from on high? Is it not destruction for the wicked, and disaster for the workers of iniquity? Does He not see my ways, and count all my steps? “If I have walked with falsehood, or if my foot has hastened to deceit, let me be weighed on honest scales, that God may know my integrity. If my step has turned from the way, or my heart walked after my eyes, or if any spot adheres to my hands, then let me sow, and another eat; yes, let my harvest be rooted out. “If my heart has been enticed by a woman, or if I have lurked at my neighbor’s door, then let my wife grind for another, and let others bow down over her. For that would be wickedness; yes, it would be iniquity deserving of judgment. For that would be a fire that consumes to destruction, and would root out all my increase.

That’s what sexual immorality will do.

Be like a fire that consumes to destruction, and would root out all your increase. Everything would be destroyed.

The church must regain this measure of integrity across the board.

The reason why the world doesn’t believe us is because we do not believe in personal integrity according to the Scriptures. That’s why LGBT and all other groups question the church because we lack integrity. However, I also believe that those that do walk in integrity will still be questioned because the world doesn’t believe in the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ to forever change a person.

It doesn’t give us the excuse to live lasciviously.

Do not be found without integrity before God. The efficacy of the church is what this is all about. Do not let the devil discredit your testimony because you decide you want to sin sexually.

The Perfect Storm: Sexual Immorality In America

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.

1. Abortion.

2. Homosexuality.

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.

Any questions?

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.

Including God.

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.

 

Masturbation: Is It Homosexuality? Part Two

If you do not believe that the Bible is the Word of God, then, you have something more urgent to worry about than masturbation.

There are many who practice sin that believe they are going to get entrance into the kingdom of God. You can’t practice what the Lord detests and assume that you will gain entrance into heaven. Do you honestly believe that you can practice same sex or any sin before the throne of God? Do you think that He would let you into His clean, holy heaven with your perversion?

God is holy. Do you think the unholy is allowed?

Only when the unholy repent and receive Jesus as Lord and Savior, and as a result, practice righteousness (see 1 John 3:1-10).

Then what would be the point of Jesus dying for sin?

Everyone wants to be like a child of God but they want to bring their sins with them.

Not happening!

At the Great White Throne Judgment, there will be no time to argue your point.

You will be judged according to your works and if your name is not found written in the Book of Life, you will be cast into the lake of fire.

However, people are so locked in their position of sin that they cannot see that they are in bondage and will have their lot. A lot of burning for all eternity. Not just for sins but for rejecting the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

You can’t be a minister without the gospel of Jesus Christ.

You can’t have “Rev. or Pastor in front and back of your name and claim to have been called by God, and practice sin. You and your charade is open for all to see as false and fakery.

True hypocrisy knows no shame.

You can’t be a church without the gospel of Jesus Christ.

You can’t have a form of godliness and deny the power of godliness (see 2 Timothy 3:1-5).

You can’t be a believer of Jesus without believing the good news that He died for all your sins, including sexual sins of adultery, fornication (porn), masturbation, homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, bisexuality, and all sexual lewd acts.

You can’t say you know Him and live in sin.

The very thing He died for to set you free.

You can’t practice homosexuality, adultery, fornication (porn), masturbation, incest, bisexuality, bestiality and be a child of God.

Light cannot fellowship with darkness.

You cannot be the temple of God and have idols. One side of the earth is dark and the other side of the earth has light.

You cannot have darkness and light on the same side of the earth.

You cannot be in complete light and be in complete darkness at the same time.

You cannot be Jesus and the devil at the same time.

You cannot be a child of God and a child of the devil at the same time.

That’s impossible.

Yet, that’s what LGBT people that claim to be believers want you to believe.

But isn’t it strange that they want certain elements from the light (marriage) to legitimize same sex union?

Isn’t it strange that they want to borrow children to have a family to look legitimate?

How do you have children?

Naturally have children?

You must go back to the original design of sex of the “one flesh” principle of Genesis 2:21-25.

Children brings legitimacy to a marriage.

Children are born from the womb of a woman after natural conception takes place after sex. The one flesh principal of Genesis 2:21-25.

Men do not have a vagina, ovaries, eggs, birth canal, or a womb. The apparent lack of this equipment makes a man incapable of giving birth. That job is left to….the woman.

Women are incapable to inseminate. They do not have a penis and they are ill-equipped to ejaculate sperm.

This job of insemination by natural means is left up to….the man.

Natural conception requires sex (one flesh principle), an egg from the female, and a sperm from the male.

LGBT people, how did you get here? IT WASN’T MOMMY HAVING SEX WITH MOMMY. IT WASN’T DADDY HAVING SEX WITH DADDY, either.

Mommy had sex with daddy and by the one flesh principle of Genesis 2:21-25, you came out of your mother’s womb.

I know, too much wisdom from God to accept.

Without artificial insemination, adoption, or surrogacy, let’s see if male and male can have children. Let’s see if female and female could have children.

How can LGBT bring legitimacy to same sex unions?

They can’t naturally bring legitimacy to a union.

So what is left?

Artificial insemination, adoption, surrogacy.

For husband and wife, not a bad option when they are unable to naturally conceive to have children.

For same sex, it’s a hijacking of the term family in an attempt to legitimize sin.

When you tell them it is dark, they tell you it’s light.

When you tell them that you are in the light, LGBT tells you that you are in darkness.

They want light while they tell you that you are in darkness.

You can’t say that you know Him and live a sinful lifestyle that He died a horrible death for. But He just didn’t die. He was resurrected in power so that man would be free from the power, shame, and guilt of sin.

True freedom is when you walk free from the power of sin, alive unto God, dead to sin (see Romans 6).

In the book of Genesis, the six chapter, the imagination of man became so intense that the people were engrossed in all sorts of perversion, that the Lord destroyed the inhabitants of the earth (humans and animals) with a flood.

When the city of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of perverseness, some of the surrounding cities were destroyed as well, with the exception of the city Lot chose to enter after the destruction.

Perversion was the reason for the destruction.

In the book of Luke chapter 17, the Lord Jesus gave us a clear sign of the end times. The days of Noah and the days of Lot.

The events of Noah and Lot’s days is equivalent to the days we are experiencing.

Sexual perversion is prevalent in and outside the church.

2 Peter 3:1-9 issues this warning.

“Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”

Many of you do not honestly believe that the Lord is going to bring judgment.

When you practice perversion, it is clear that you have taken the position to be an enemy of God.

Truly, you have something to fear and worry about.

If you practice perversion, you will be judged.

If you repent, you will not be judged.

Just note that you’ve been warned.

As you can see in the comments from part one that a cord has been struck.

Many of you are considering what you have been doing as far as masturbation is concerned. In fact, I believe that many of you were at or approaching a level of hopelessness and found something in what was said to give you hope to quit in forever repentance, to be forever free in Jesus.

In other places on many websites, including BTR (BlogTalkRadio, Secret Sexual Sins downloaded from iTunes), and a couple of years ago, on Amazon.com about my book on Secret Sexual Sins, I was ridiculed.

Years ago I read an article about pastors that helped me not to be intimidated and quit. Pastors must have the love of God and a sense of humor. Pastors must know God and the Bible they live and preach from, and pastors must have thick skin of a rhinoceros.

Even the Lord Jesus was accused of having a demon (see John 7:20) because they questioned His authority, and where did His authority came from.

When it comes to ministering the Word of God on the subject of masturbation, if deliverance is firmly in place and you have, by His grace, successfully defeated porn and masturbation, it is clear that as time progress and your deliverance is sticking, you become an authority on deliverance from occasional or chronic masturbation and porn.

In other words, you fully learned to trust in Jesus and His Word, the sufficient grace of God, and the power of the Holy Spirit to keep you from using your members (self hands on penis-clitoris) as instruments of unrighteousness. Thus, authority, time tested, grace of God solidified, is firmly entrenched and irrevocably established.

Ridicule is an attempt to intimidate you to stop. To move you from faith to fear. To defeat the seed of the Word of God in you. To lower your esteem in God. To get you to surrender and return to the place of darkness. To chase you from God’s stronghold back to the house of bondage; from Jerusalem back to Egypt.

These intimidating elements will be relentless because when truth hits the hearts of men and women bound in sexual immorality, Acts 19 is the result. Paul’s message of the gospel of Jesus turned an entire city around from demon worship associated with the sex trade to Jesus. Diana of the Ephesians had connections to Ashtoreth idols of sexual immorality and sensuality, and they were delivered. Before the deliverance at Ephesus took place, a major city riot ensued.

The riot was an attempt by the devil to intimidate Paul and the early believers from sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in a sexual immorality filled city. Ephesus is a sea side port of commerce and there is no doubt that prostitution was part of the business because of its connection to idolatry and sorcery.

Usually, when you throw a rock in a pack of dogs, the one that gets hit is the one that hollers. When truth is brought to bear against people intending to live in sin, an attack and ridicule is coming. I must say that you can always tell the difference between dogs and those seeking help and deliverance when you read their comments.

What’s apparent is that reasoning sounds so good when you are in sin and someone brings truth against such reasoning. The indefensible position of sin will always have sugary sound bites of practiced or rehearsed reasoning that defy the Word of God.

And all human reasoning will lack the rightly divided Word of truth.

Sin doesn’t have legs to stand on because sin was crucified in the flesh of Jesus, and there is nothing in the Scriptures that authorizes or sympathize with sin.

When comparing comments, always note what Scripture was used to support a point. That’s the common denominator that either establishes truth and or rebukes the false. Where there is a lack of contextual Scriptural use, points of human reasoning become humanistic/demonically inspired rhetoric, lacking truth, or there will be hidden elements of truth to veil the poison.

Such rhetoric is deceptive reasoning and gives incredible insight as to why a person remains in sexual immorality bondage.

One example is that there is no Scripture that says “Thou shalt not masturbate.” But there is also no Scripture that says, “Thou shalt masturbate.”

We all know that sexual immorality is a sex act imagined and invented by unregenerate man or carnal Christians, done apart from God’s established Word that authorizes sex.

It’s called perversion.

Here’s perversion in it’s rawest forms.

(DISCRETION IS ADVISED)

When a man sticks his penis in the anus (male or female), that’s incompatible. It’s perversion and abominable. When a man or woman sucks a penis, that’s incompatible. It’s perversion and abominable.

When a man uses his hand to pretend that he is inside a vagina, mouth, or anus (male or female), that’s incompatible. It’s perversion and abominable.

When a man sticks his penis in any animal or any other material (sex toys, rubber dolls, etc.), that’s incompatible. It’s perversion and abominable.

When a woman sucks or is penetrated by an animal, that’s incompatible. It’s perversion and abominable.

When a man sticks his penis in his wife’s vagina, that’s compatible. It’s not perversion and it’s not abominable unless it is fornication or adultery (see Hebrews 13:4).

When people are called perverts, the LGBT community calls it hate language. What does the dictionary say as a clear definition of a pervert?

“It is a person whose behavior deviates from what is acceptable especially from sexual behavior.”

Normal sexual behavior is Biblically defined by Almighty God, not sinner/demonically defined. The rights of morality is owned by the Creator (see Isaiah 45:9-10). Your death and judgment cannot and will not ever be in your control. Ever!

So, when truth comes, and a person is either offended or they seek help, and deliverance.

But perverted people, fight against the truth with their own reasoning. To get you to change so that the heat of truth would diminish or be extinguished altogether.

The Bible called them dogs (see Philippians 3:2 and Revelations 22:15).

What do dogs do?

They bark in attempt to intimidate.

Therefore, human reasoning and ridiculing truth is part of the bark of intimidation.

So, would it be safe to ignore the bark? No. Because if you do not address their vain attempt to justify sin, you are leaving a door wide open for them to keep many from seeing the truth. The truth must come out in order for people to have a chance to be free of sin before judgment, called the wrath of God, falls. Silence is what the devil wants. If lying and falsity isn’t challenged with the Word of truth, the lie, to them becomes truth.

There is a difference between attempting to get answers and defending baseless reasoning that lack coherent, backed by harmonious, contextual teaching in the Word of God.

People (dogs) pride themselves in speaking against the truth because when you are trapped in sin, the only reasons for remaining in an opened prison cell is the pleasure of sin and suppression of truth. Jesus opened every man’s prison cell. Sinful man could walk free at any time. Many refuse to walk out to trust the Savior.

So, is this reverse intimation? Calling people dogs? No. God never intimidates. God always promises. And when people are the enemy of God and His Word, He promises one thing. Judgment, unless there is repentance before death because there is no repentance after death.

Judgment is next after death.

The big lying dog, called the devil, brings reasonings to keep you doing what you like to do. Masturbate. He keeps lying to you that if you leave, you will never be satisfied with Jesus. If you walk with Jesus, you can no longer have this kind of pleasure. If you stop masturbating, what will you do to keep yourself from this pleasure of all pleasures?

The goal is not to hit just to be hitting. The goal is not even to bring a debate about masturbation. If you believe that the Bible is the Word of God, then the Word is not going to lead you astray.

The Word will always lead you into truth, when the Word is rightly divided.

The goal is to get you to understand that Jesus is all you need and you do not have to be in bondage to stroking yourself in occasional or chronic masturbation. True healthy sex is between husband and wife. False, unhealthy sex is masturbation, prostitution, homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, and bestiality. It’s all about following God’s true design or the devil’s perverted and distorted concept of fantasy island.

What masturbation is all about is the improper use of the penis.

What masturbation is about is committing a lewd, sinful sex act in violation of God’s original design and intent of the part He created for man. When there is a willful act to abuse (abnormally use) the male or female anatomy for sinful pleasures, there must be a return to healthy, authorized use of the male and female anatomy.
