Earlier in the week many of us has seen information regarding the possible capitulation of Chick Fil A. That there were back room negotiations. That Chick Fil A caved in to LGBT demands in connection with building more Chick Fil A restaurants in Chicago if Chick Fil A concede to the following demands, such as they are to no longer donate to organizations that are anti gay.
Governor Mike Huckabee, as you know, encouraged many believers to go and support Chick Fil A for standing up to the pressures of the LGBT community after Mr. Dan Cathy stated his unequivocal support for traditional family values that are Bible based, that marriage is between one man and one woman.
The Chick Fil A Appreciation Day was far beyond successful.
It was a defining moment in American history.
And it is worthy to mention that no other franchise made 18 million plus dollars in one day, in a downturn economy.
This one day validated free speech, but more importantly, the right to speak and represent the Lord, the Word of God, and traditional marriage, in accordance with Genesis 2:24.
For the most part, it appears that many in the LGBT community vehemently disagreed and the political henchmen went as far as to say that they would block any attempt of Chick Fil A to expand their business because Chick Fil A stood against LGBT’s poisonous sin.
Believers and non believers, all across the United States gathered peacefully. Not to protest. Just to support a man who stuck by Biblical principles and values.
We thought that there was a major capitulation on Chick Fil A’s part. Here is what we’ve learned from the FB post of Governor Mike Huckabee….
“I talked earlier today personally with Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick Fil-A about the new reports that Chick Fil-A had capitulated to demands of the supporters of same sex marriage. This is not true. The company continues to focus on the fair treatment of all of its customers and employees, but to end confusion gave me this statement:
“There continues to be erroneous implications in the media that Chick-fil-A changed our practices and priorities in order to obtain permission for a new restaurant in Chicago. That is incorrect. Chick-fil-A made no such concessions, and we remain true to who we are and who we have been.”
From the onset, having learned a lesson, you wait until it plays itself out. But I was still confused. You see, David went by the brook and got five smooth stones. But David only used one with tremendous results. Then a little while later, in 2 Samuel 21, Goliath’s sons came up. Four.
One thing about giants and fighting. You must finish the job that you started. The four sons of Goliath were killed by David’s skilled fighting men. At this time, Goliath’s four sons are showing up and it is time for the church to finish the job.
I was taken aback by the fact that why capitulate so soon after a resounding victory.
But the statement above is encouraging.
So, someone is lying.
The Bible tells us that the devil is a liar and the father of lies; that there is no truth in him.
The Bible also says, “Let God be true and every man a liar.”
So, Jesus also said that “You are of your father, the devil…”
So if you are not a born again child of God, and when you talk, it’s not going to be the truth. It’s going to be lies.
Is Mr. Cathy a child of the devil or a child of God?
Based on what we have heard and have seen, he is a child of God and speaks the truth.
There is no reason for Mr. Cathy to turn his back on the God he professes to serve. And there is no reason for him to walk away from the statement of honoring traditional family values and traditional marriage. What is there to gain? A couple of stores in Chicago? For what? And deny the true God?
What is the eternal trade off?
Heaven and Hell.
We are living in an apostate time where believers are walking away from the Lord at record pace. And for Mr. Cathy to capitulate, we wouldn’t have been surprised because of the intimidation of the enemy. However, Mr. Cathy’s statement is encouraging but we also need to watch this for a little while to ensure that it sticks.
This presidential election is more than just what will happen in the next four years. It is about who you are serving.
A vote, in either direction, for either candidate is a revelation of the God or god you serve. And sadly, evangelicals and other Christians, God loves them, they will vote for a baby killing, sin of homosexuality affirming president.
You better be.
We must start honoring the Word of God according to righteousness.
Why be against God and for sin? Are you mad? Have you lost your ever living mind?
It’s like watching a movie again and you are told to run….
We all know you may not be smart enough to run, so we might as well watch you get crushed.
With Mitt Romney, he is a Mormon.
Mormons by definition is a cult and not a part of main stream Christianity.
And sadly as well as pathetically, evangelicals are blind enough to put aside the stand on the Word of God for political purposes.
For the first time in Presidential elections, a protestant will not be on either ticket.
So the news of caving in was rather shocking, to say the least.
And that’s why we were so shocked. People that run from the Lord and His Word are cowards. You have to learn to make a stand when it’s unpopular to do so for fear of ridicule from the world.
If Mr. Cathy capitulated, then we need to sever ties and move on, and not look back and become a pillar of salt.
With opponents that hate God, the Word of God, and believers in Christ, it is expected for them to lie, cheat, steal, misquote, abuse Scripture, manipulate the law, persecute, perjure, kill, murder, slander, intimidate with schoolyard bully tactics, and create any sort of distortion to perpetuate and advance the sin of homosexuality.
Every bully has a bully waiting.
Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed with fire and brimstone, rained down from heaven.
The Bible tells us in Revelation 21:8….
“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolators, and ALL LIARS shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone (the same substance used to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah), which is the second death.”
So whoever is the liar, will have their part.
We will continue to watch for any late breaking developments.
First, I crossed the line in an unethical way. Some of you may disagree but just like David, my heart smote me. The article that Pastor DL Foster put out is the lead article and the title of my blog deflected from the proper credit. My intent is never to abuse blogging to cause confusion. I repent and I apologize.
The utmost goal is to inform the believers where the Spirit of God is definitely moving.
Not to compete, but to complete.
My good friend and colleague in the ministry, who has been especially gracious to us all is way ahead of the curve on this stuff. I’m just learning and trying to assist in any way possible to help bring concurrence to his vital work in the Body of Christ.
The link to this blog will be updated as quickly as possible if it hasn’t been done already.
But GCMWatch’s blog stands as the lead article, and rightly so…..
This election is revealing where many believers are. On the Titanic of Sexual Immorality. Anyone that decides to stay on a sinking ship is no different than a person that is told not to board her. Yet, because of stubbornness, they all go down.
Here is the link below. Please read and take heed.
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.
Ezekiel 28:11-19, Isaiah 14:12-17, Revelation 12:7-9, Genesis chapter 3, 2 Corinthians 4:4 and Ephesians 2:1-3.
In these verses of Scripture reveals the origin of the power behind the darkness of this world.
For those that know their Bible, the reason is clear.
Many that claim to be in the church and those that are in the world still do not believe that there is a devil that is instigating issues of darkness.
Many believe that Jesus walked the earth. So, what’s the problem?
After the Lord was baptized in the river Jordan by His earthly cousin, John the Baptist, the Holy Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
When it was time for Jesus to be betrayed by Judas, after Judas dipped his bread after Jesus dipped, satan entered into Judas.
When Jesus asked a question about what people were saying about Him, and when Jesus explained to them that He would be betrayed, be killed, and be placed in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights, Peter took Jesus aside and rebuked Jesus. Jesus in turn looked at Peter and said, “satan, get behind me. You pay more attention to the things of men and not the things of God.”
Obviously, for those that have understanding, the Lord is speaking to the devil that inspired Peter to rebuke the Lord.
If you are spiritually astute, you now got a glimpse of happens when people think, speak, and act. The spiritual source behind every person is always revealed in a person’s thought, speech, and actions.
In that order.
It is either evil or it is good.
Jesus said it like this….
“Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”
Please note that it’s not a grammatical error of the person of the devil, spelling satan with a lower case letter is only fitting for him. Because the devil is such a low life loser, having been defeated by the King of kings and the Lord of lords over two thousand years ago.
In all movies, there is always good and evil. In most cases, its movies show how good always triumphs over evil. So again, the question is asked.
What’s the problem?
Well, we look at our lives and we see that we are either driven by God or the devil. Our actions reveal “who’s our daddy.”
Having said this, years ago, as people started coming out of the closet, many became very vocal and outspoken. Almost to the point where it appeared that they had numbers. Many voices. Paul Neil shared something that is worth noting and he receives the credit for this that many in “hollywood, the rich, and famous,” (the rest are my words) are the puppet masters or the puppet master associates.
But even they are not the real power behind LGBTQ.
You see, the person you think is pulling the strings on a puppet is on a set of strings him or herself.
When they are challenged by the light of the glorious gospel, the demons speak venomous things to try to push the light back out. Granted, there are people that claim to be believers in Christ that say things just as harsh and at times worse than LGBTQ people.
Those that claim to be believers, yet speak evil things, do not speak for those that operate according to 1 John 4:7-16. They are not in the will of God and we that are true to the Lord, condemn all behavior inconsistent with true Christ-like, Biblical values.
In listening to Dr. Michael Brown, the majority of people that practice the sin of homosexuality just want to be left alone.
I heard that but it doesn’t mean we surrender, dilute, or shrink back from speaking the truth, the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ, in love.
Then where is this other stuff coming from?
Those that are in high positions in almost every state.
God doesn’t have puppets and He doesn’t have strings. Those that are saved, willingly submit to the power of God. And at anytime, if we so choose, we could return to the demonic puppet master.
At any time, I can watch porn and masturbate (I still have Directv and access to the Internet). At any time, I can act out my former sinful sexual self. But I don’t want to because God loved me, and saved me, and delivered me from the horrible pit of sin. There is no desire to return because He fully satisfies me with good things so my youth is renewed like the eagles.
Besides, the Bible also says, “As many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.”
We are not pulled to act, we are inspired by the Holy Spirit to act.
At any time, we can stop ourselves from being led by the Spirit. We are not manipulated or coerced. And while there is repercussions for disobedience to the Lord, the Lord gives His people space to repent.
With the devil, when he gives power, he takes it away. Why? With the world, it’s about worship. World Idol. Every person that received glory from the world was destroyed. Count them up. How did some of them die? And even if they went “peaceful” if they died outside of Christ, in hell they lifted up their eyes.
All that work for nothing but eternal separation from the presence of the Lord in the pit of hell, called Hades, and after that, the judgment, and the lake of fire forever.
One thing about shows and actors, we forget that an actor is a hypocrite. That’s what an actor is. A play actor. They come out of who they are and assume the personality of their character. Depending upon their spiritual source, it’s either good or bad.
More than likely, it is bad.
You see, their sin on screen influences sin off the screen. In other words, those that are in darkness, plunge further into darkness. Those that have yet to plunge initially will plunge and be caught by demonic forces portrayed though hearts of darkness, teaching people the ways of darkness.
And when they stand on stage, you do not see them as a real person, you see the spirit that drives them and they think they are bigger in life. You acclimate to their sinful ways and fall into sin because they taught you. They trained you. They copycatted what they do and they pursue it with fierce gusto.
And if you try to preach to them the righteousness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, they will fight you. With our African American hip hop artists, now you see why they act out what they rap about or they are already acting out. It’s that they have found a way to communicate it to the masses, and more African American copycats show up.
That’s why the Lord Jesus said, “…unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
That’s the only way you will be able to bear good fruit. Yet, many that aren’t born again are trying to bear good fruit and we know that this is impossible, based on what the Lord Jesus said.
“…a bad tree cannot bear good fruit…”
Therefore, LGBTQ people or anyone that is not born again, cannot bear good fruit.
So there is a tremendous effort to discredit, restrict, impose man made laws and policy, speak evil of the people of God on the level of Goliath towards Israel, use violence, use politics, use the media, circumvent Internet free speech rights, use and play stupid childish, immature computer savvy blocking methods, harass, belittle and degrade anyone that uses the Word of God to tell the truth in love.
Modern day Gestapo, North Korea, Chinese and every other evil national totalitarian tactics to stop the truth. It’s not just the people that do these things, it’s the devil and his angels driving unregenerate people to do these things because they are blinded by the god of this world called the devil.
When the Soviet Union collapsed and the Berlin Wall was busted through, the people shouted. In fact, on one tape, at the Berlin Wall, the people that were once held captive by communism sang, “This Is The Day The Lord Has Made” in German.
If what the Bible said weren’t perceived as a clear threat, the devil and his kids wouldn’t even bother to say a word. But because the gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation, the promise of being made free by Jesus is too great a promise not to ignore.
Because when people are free, corrupt systems disappear.
The more homosexuals, lesbians, adulterers, fornicators, bisexuals and all sinners come out of the dark places to His marvelous light, the LGBTQ community would suffer heavy political loss.
Their sin of homosexuality would see a considerable decrease.
That’s why they push so hard vocally and vehemently against real marriage and righteousness according to the Word of God.
Back in 2004 or so, it seemed as if LGBTQ numbers were like 15% or more of the American population. This would be a formidable number because that means their influence appears to be heavy in every state and major populated cities.
But after they did an analysis of their actual numbers, it turned out to be significantly much less.
2% to 3% of the American population, which is far less than the African American minority numbers at between 12% and 14% of the US population. Yet, African Americans make of half the HIV/AIDS cases annually in America.
Why do they seem bigger?
Because heterosexual couples that live in sin or they are actually married support homosexual marriage. Coupled with the fact that politicians embraced their lobbyists. Coupled with the fact that the media embraced their sin of homosexuality. Not because it was popular but they saw another way to make money. Yes, they are being used like a dingy, rain soaked, never cleaned, floor mat and they do even know it.
Talk about being played.
Just like African Americans that do not know the truth are being played.
Each and every year, they vote blindly and stupidly. Hoping that they would one day “overcome.”
They do not mind if you keep singing, “We Shall Overcome” because if you knew the God of the Bible and the New Testament, ratified by the blood of Jesus said, “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” you would stop singing that song.
That song of hope remains an expectation that never will happen and that you will never overcome and win. That’s exactly what the devil behind the curtain wants you to think.
So they add to the voice behind the curtain. And they are just as boisterous.
Another hidden figure is the amount of bisexual activity that goes on with unregenerate men and women.
But the God of the Bible, the Word of God, and the redeemed of the Lord is not a threat.
We are a promise.
The promise of hope, and joy when a person is turned from the power of satan to God, from the power of darkness to light. From sin to righteousness. From a child of hell to a child of God. From the presence of demonic forces to the presence of the Lord.
With the Chick-fil-A situation, again, they tried to use the tactic of “loud and boisterous” in hopes that they would strike fear and terror.
A pip squeak called satan, defeated by Jesus, is behind the curtain, remember.
We are not impressed or intimidated.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous hand. Behold, all those who were incensed against you shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing (hence the title of my blog), and those who strive with you shall perish, You shall seek them and not find them- Those who contend with you. Those who war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing. For I, the Lord your GOd, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.”
Could it be that God is using a chicken to teach man, in particular, perverted, unregenerate man the gospel? The gospel of creation?
For those of you that know already, the leadership of Chick Fil A took and made a vocal stand against same sex marriage.
In the blink of an eye, LGBTQ sent messages out that they would “boycott” (a well documented Civil Rights tactic) the establishment in an failed attempt to send fear in the world.
In particular to Christians.
Quite the contrary is occurring.
McDonalds and KFC is joining Chick Fil A in supporting their stand against same sex marriage. Usually, the opposite occurs. Most establishments would have capitulated under the political incorrectness stress and pressure of LGBTQ.
But we are seeing the trend reverse.
First, I believe it’s because these establishments are reading the numbers that LGBTQ is a very small minority with a very big lying demonic spirit, mouthing off lies and deception to make it seem as if they are bigger than they are. And that they make it seem like they have teeth, every time they act like they want to bite.
It’s hard to bite when all you have is gums.
But as a roaring lion, the devil’s teeth was pulled at Calvary and Jesus triumphed over death and darkness under the earth for three days and three nights, was raised from the dead, and Jesus is seated at the right hand of the throne of His Majesty in heaven.
Second, the food establishment knows that even if there were to be a boycott by LGBTQ, their money wouldn’t be missed. For Chick Fil A and other supporting establishments, it’s not a calculated risk. And these supporting establishments could and should anticipate residual revenue should Chick Fil A be overwhelmed with people coming on August 1.
And a word for the Mayor of Chicago, you are going to see revenue and residual revenue.
And just know that it came from God.
Will you repent and turn your life over to Christ as a result? Only God knows.
It is a bold statement to let LGBTQ know that it is not running the show like they used to and they know it.
Like toddlers and adolescents, standby for their immature temper tantrums.
As Paul said in Romans 5:20b-21,
“But where sin abounded, grace does much more abound, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Isn’t it a shame that LGBTQ hijacked Civil Rights from the African Americans? And sadly, it’s reprehensible that high ranking Civil Rights Leaders that marched in these non violent protests in the past have hopped in bed with LGBTQ.
But thank God that there are independent thinking African American pastors that see the lie for what it is and we refuse to toe their perverted line to swallow the poisonous lies of sin based on deception. Give us the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ over sexual perversion any day.
We must also understand that it’s not just about the sin of homosexuality.
It’s sexual perversion of any kind. Adultery, fornication, bisexuality, bestiality, porn, self gratification, commonly called masturbation.
And if you are a pastor that has yet to speak against sexual immorality, it is clear that you need to get off the sidelines and speak against the sexual sins of our times.
Provided that you are not a hypocrite in the pulpit.
Your silence is deafening.
In fact, if you remain silent, your silence may be deemed by others as permission to engage in Secret Sexual Sins.
You are to speak up against all sin, including the sin of homosexuality. If not, you are party with the LGBTQ agenda and James 4:4 is the authority Scripture that determines your traitor/enemy of God status.
Stop hiding, avoiding the issue, and come out, and speak boldly against the sinful spirit of homosexuality, and all sexual immorality of our times.
Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:4
“In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of the that believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of the glory of Christ, Who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
The devil has blinded them to accept these lies and deceptions.
Sin and race are two different issues.
To mingle the two is deception.
In addition to boycotting, they allegedly sent the word to same sex partners to show up and also perform modest lewd acts in front of some of these establishments in retaliation.
We are now seeing that as a result of Mike Huckabee’s FB page to support Chick Fil A on Wednesday, August 1, 2012, is one of many solutions to counter the LGBTQ agenda.
Believers in Christ, all across the United States are leading the effort to support our fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord.
First, we must understand that God “desires all men to saved and come to the knowledge of the truth,” according to 1 Timothy 2:4.
We know that not everyone that serve behind the counters of Chick Fil A and those around that may see a surge of believers come to some of these places that they may not know the Lord. That’s where the church, with it’s bold witness must uphold the standards of the Word of God and share the gospel when the opportunity arises. We must give an answer of the reason of the hope that abides in us.
Actually, Peter, by the Holy Spirit said it like this.
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed. For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.”
Gleaning from portions of Romans 12, Paul reminds us….
“Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good…Bless those that persecute you; bless and do not curse…Do not be wise in you own opinion….Repay no one evil for evil…Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.” says the Lord. Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Go and have a good time before the Lord.
The world might be seeing a great display of camaraderie. While the numbers are encouraging, what’s important is we provide the world the kind of representation that glorifies the Lord.
The devil is prepared to incite, bait, and resort to things to lure us to drop our guard. But we need not fear what they will do. Perhaps, there may not even be an incident, which would be good because a peaceful assembly to enjoy some good chicken would be a great thing.
Remember, the devil is a liar. And his children may not like the truth but this is what the church is supposed to be and do.
We are “the pillar and ground of the truth.”
We are to “speak the truth in love.”
We are to “walk in truth.”
One more thing.
Isn’t it powerful that when God created the animals on the earth that they were made male and female, and He commanded them to be fruitful and multiply? Isn’t it powerful that when Adam searched for someone compatible that none was found? But Adam took note that the animals paired off, male and female, and they had each other. But Adam was all alone. That is he had no one of his kind to share life with.
Remember, God is Spirit according to John 4:24.
Man was created in the image of God, spirit and soul, both of which are eternal, and he was placed in a physical container. And the Lord God said, “It is not good for Adam to be alone.”
It is evident that Adam wanted a female and the Lord provided a woman. Suitable for his needs. Man wasn’t created for woman, woman was created for man. God was careful enough to make someone completely opposite, yet, compatible. There was no confusion about what Adam needed. Suddenly, Adam was put to sleep and when He woke up, God brought a beautiful woman to him.
Bone of my bone flesh of my flesh.
She shall be called Woman…named Eve….mother of all living.
The animals serve as a reminder that God knew exactly what He was doing.
The chicken, on creative instinct, knew to find opposites of each other to have more chicken. If God created male chicken and male chicken, there would be no chicken and Chick Fil A, and all other chicken establishments would not be in business. Perhaps breakfast, lunch, and dinner would be chicken-less had God decided to create male and male chicken.
No eggs for breakfast or brunch. No chicken fillet sandwiches. No grilled chicken. No gospel bird. No chicken parm. No potato salad. You gotta have eggs for potato salad.
Two male chickens after the fall of Adam, would have been the only chicken sandwich in history. And we could only imagine what chicken taste like.
Hence, the same principle applies if God created only two males or two females.
Perhaps God is speaking through chicken that animals have more sense than perverted humans.
I intend to be at one of the Chick Fil A establishments. I’ve asked members of Prevailing Word to join me, my wife and daughter. We intend to stand and be a witness. For what the Lord Jesus did for us over 2000 years ago, it’s the least we could do.
I encourage you to be salt and light for the Lord Jesus.
The Garden of Pleasure is where temptation and failure became the way of all man until we are born again by the Holy Spirit. And even after a person is born again, it doesn’t mean that temptation has ended. What it means is that the power to resist temptation is now in you. The fallen nature of man must die and we must be changed from within by the Holy Spirit.
The fallen nature’s desire to examine, pursuit, capture, and consume is what makes falling into sin from being tempted possible. Possible to fall into or possible to escape it.
The excitement of enticement. The tease. The desire to go deeper into someone or something. Every person is smitten with temptation.
However, we do not have to fall into temptation.
Temptation is not sin. To be tempted is just enticement or baiting. If you do not take the bait, you cannot sin.
It is when we cast off restraint and cross the line of discipline to not touch whatever, that we fall into sin.
James said count it all joy when you “fall into temptation.”
If your life wasn’t of value to discredit Jesus, you wouldn’t be tempted. There are some forms of temptation that are so blatant that if you are not careful, you will stop thinking about the cost and engage to sin.
Men are sight stimulated. What we see is what our mind locks on and we burn that image in our souls to consume it mentally until you have to touch it.
The full satisfaction is after you have touched what you’ve watched.
Proverbs 27:20 says,
“Hell and destruction are never full, so the eyes of man are never satisfied.”
Dangle something that a person likes and it won’t be long before the desire to consume it comes.
Low cleavage, body hugging above the knees dress. Hair up or down, preferably sexy down. You’ve seen it before and that is desirable to see all of the time. Now the desire to see it again and again is programed into your repetitive thinking process.
Unless she is your wife, you are already in pursuit in your mind to check it ALL out as she gets closer and closer. Your heart races and your mind goes into several transitions until mind and body ultimately transitions into “I must touch it. I must have it. I must consume it.”
We all know how this works but let’s examine it in relative detail.
All things have a point of origin or beginning point. When it comes to temptation of the sexual nature, we can only be tempted based on our desires. If there is no desire, there can be no reference point for preference. Whatever our desire is, that’s where our preference is, and that is the area where the enemy will tempt us (see Hebrews 12:1).
If something is repulsive to us, chances are, unless lines are crossed to escalate unexplored regions of sex acts to obtain the unobtainable carrot of sexual satisfaction, we will not engage.
Look at what the Bible says about temptation from the book of James chapter one and verses 14 and 15.
“But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full- grown, brings forth death.”
For clarity, the Amplified Bible gives this rendition.
“But every person is tempted when he is drawn away, enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust, passions). Then the evil desire, when it has conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is fully matured, brings forth death.”
When James says “…but every person,” no one escapes temptation.
In order for you to be tempted you have to be “drawn away.”
How are we drawn away?
Notice…“enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust, passions).
You see lust never seeks you. Lust is already in there unless it is dealt a death blow (see Colossians 3:5).
Romans chapter 7 is the tell all of how sin in the flesh operates.
In all of us, there is a preference for the kinds of sin that brings evil pleasure to our minds and bodies. However, these evil passions and desires must have conception in order to produce only one thing.
But let’s go back a bit.
What is it that is in your mind and flesh that you know that you would easily fall prey to? Just like fish or any predator. When you see something that is appealing to you, you will pursue it until you’ve captured it for consumption. Like all evil temptation, there is always a hook at the end of the bait.
It’s the same with humans. Same sex attractions, opposite sex attractions or attractions for both.
The definition for lust is “longing for that which is forbidden.”
When you are told that you cannot have a certain thing, sometimes it can add to the pursuit. The inquisitive pursuit.
A sort of curiosity that seeks out what it would be like to have it that way. It’s the same with sex. When a woman or a man walks by, your mind is inquisitive about what is not seen. What is seen is the appealing process that triggers the desire to further examine. Then it reengages into another mode. The conception process is figuring out how to get it and consume it.
According to Matthew 5:27-28, you already crossed the line in imagining what you will do when you get her or him. The lines one declares that it will not cross is just a speed bump. You will slow down but you will eventually cross it.
It is just a matter of time.
How do we overcome temptation?
We must look at the life of the Lord Jesus to answer this question. By looking at how He was able to resist the devil is textbook child of God living.
The mistake that many of us make when it comes to sexual thoughts is that we open ourselves to think about it, and then we spend more time than necessary exploring these thoughts instead of casting them down.
Paul said in 2 Corinthians 10:4-5,
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought to the obedience of Christ…”
In verse 4, Paul is letting us know that we are to exclusively rely and depend upon the Source of power to deal with what comes at us, or what we conjure up from the dark unregenerate part of our soul.
Listen to what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 6:22,
“The lamp of the body is the eye…”
Your physical eyes is the doorway to the soul and spirit.
Whatever your eyes see and whatever your mind trains your eyes to see, that’s how darkness or light prepares to enter. Whether you are born again or not, and you train your eyes to look for things to lust after, notice the rest of what the Lord Jesus said,
“If therefore your eye is good (clear), your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is dark (bad), your whole body will be full of darkness.”
What constitutes a good eye? Being a child of God.
What constitutes a bad eye? Being a child of darkness.
What if you are a child of God and you look at bad things?
The principle is still the same.
Your whole body will be full of darkness. But you are a child of God. How can you be a child of the light and a have your body full of darkness?
Remember, Jesus said, “your body,”
He didn’t say your spirit.
Look at what the Lord Jesus told Paul in Acts 26:18…
“…to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.”
When you refuse to look upon a woman lustfully, you are protecting your body from allowing darkness to enter. When you refuse to look, you are not afraid of falling into temptation. You are guarding your eyes from allowing your soul to meditate on the object sinfully according to Matthew 5:27-28.
While we must renew our minds, it is done by spending time in the Word of God and less time in the word of the underworld.
That’s why most software programs called “Windows” is just that. You are looking through the window to enjoy the view.
It takes the power of God to pull down a stronghold.
Paul said in Ephesians 6:10,
“Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.”
We all know that sex is appealing. When sexy things confront us, we want to explore the possibilities of having sex.
Sex appeal is just as powerful with SSA or Same Sex Attractions.
Lust works both ways, depending upon sinful sexual preference.
The battle will always be about what your soul wants to meditate on after you see it.
Psalm 101:3 says, “I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me.”
You have to make a conscious effort to shut down what your eyes used to watch.
It took me a while to understand how hypocritical I was when it came to keeping the Word of God. Like Paul said, “…having a form of godliness but denying it’s power.”
A few weeks ago, I needed to make a shift in my approach to being a child of God before the people before they recognize the office of pastor in me.
As a child of God, I am responsible to live the way the Word demands us to live. Preachers have to work the Word for themselves just like any believer. The office of pastor is what I am called to do, and it is also known as the “overflow” or the anointing of the Holy Spirit upon my life.
What the Spirit of God does when I am in the pulpit is not for me but what is deposited as the Word of God is for the people. As a born again believer, I live off of the “well of water, springing up into everlasting life.”
This means that I drink from the well of everlasting life for me. To walk in His ways for me. To be pleasing to the Lord for me.
This is what I shared.
“If I sin the sin of porn and masturbation ever again, I am a hypocrite and I can no longer preach to God’s people as a hypocrite. I will step down and resign the ministry should I ever sin like I did.”
Matthew 23 is the sermon of all sermons on hypocrites.
For me not to fulfill my ir-retractable promise, means that I have to work Proverbs 4:23 every moment. Now mind you, my commitment to holiness is deeper than that. When the Lord delivered me from porn and masturbation, I look to Him as the only one that I need to please. And when I can’t please the Lord, I know that when I stand before Him to be judged, I want to be able to know before then that I did everything I could to keep myself from sinning by employing His Word in strict obedience.
I cannot compromise because pleasing the Lord is all I want to do when it comes to sexual sins.
None of you were there when He saved me and called me into the ministry. I know what His voice sounds like. I know what His presence is like. I know when He smiles and I know when He is grieved. I know when He is pleased and I know when He is not pleased.
“…but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”
I don’t know about you, but I want to be pure as He is pure.
That’s why the battle is an intense battle. This is the motivation of my life. Hearing Him say “well done, good and faithful servant” is what everyone says at funerals and home-goings, but do we really deserve to hear him say it if we know that we haven’t battled hard enough to keep sexually explicit thoughts from our minds? Do we deserve to hear it if we know we haven’t lived holy? Do we deserve to hear it if we know that we have not been pleasing in His sight on the level of Enoch and Jesus?
I urge you. Plead with you. This is the hour of testing and trials. Perhaps you haven’t lived up to His expectations. You can when you make the irreversible quality decision to live holy regardless of the winds of the world blowing on your house on the rock.
“Therefore whoever hears these saying of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock (the courage, fortitude, and unquenchable strength of the human will to hear what Jesus said and do them).”
Words in parenthesis are mine.
In the last two blogs, a lot of doctrine came out. Now the ball is in your court.
What are you willing to do to stop the battle of constant perverted sexual thoughts in your mind?
It is very easy to point to Romans 12:1-2 and Ephesians 4:23.
We often say that we have to renew our minds but do we make the quality effort to completely allow the Holy Spirit to purge our mind? And after the purging, do we really listen to the Holy Spirit when He directs us to change what we are currently thinking? The soul is very powerful but the soul is second in the tri-part makeup of man.
Therefore, it is the born again spirit of man, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, that must reign in the thoughts of the soul, and subjugate the soul to think about the Word of God.
Subjugate is a very strong word but it is a necessary word because that’s what we have to do if we are going to be serious about battling sexual thoughts (see 1 Corinthians 9:27).
At first, it’s not easy but the more you develop submission to God and resist the devil (see James 4:7 and 1 Peter 5:8-9), over time, you will be able to quickly identify 1.) demonic attempts to generate certain sexual perverted thoughts and 2.) self generated perverted sexual thoughts.
When you are generating perverted sexual thoughts on your own, it’s because you’ve given yourself over to thinking those thoughts.
Act 6:4 is a very powerful Scripture. The apostles were challenged to serve tables and said that they wouldn’t do that. They told them to pick seven men to serve. They also said, “But we will give ourselves continually to prayer and the ministry of the Word.”
In 1 Corinthians 6:12, Paul said,
“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.”
You see, it is a matter of the will and what you want to have dominate your life. Anything that tells you what to do is exercising dominion over you. Just because “urges and impulses” for sex comes, it doesn’t mean that you have to yield to its control to be brought under its power.
You can give yourself to anything you want. You are in control. That’s why if you do not “Keep your heart with all diligence…” you will succumb or yield your soul (mind, emotions, intellect, personality, human will) to think perverted thoughts.
The Word of God serves to cleanse (Ephesians 4:26) and expose (Ephesians 5:11). The more you meditate on the Word of God, day and night (Joshua 1:8), the more you “prosper” and have “good success”…. over the forces of darkness.
Psalm 119:130 says,
“The entrance of Your words give light; it gives understanding to the simple (gullible).”
So when you read the Word of God. Purposefully read the Word of God, the light of His Word comes into the soul and heart of man. Then we make the quality effort to “do the Word.” (see James 1:22).
The proof that the entrance of the Word came into your heart is in the immediacy of obedience during moments that darkness is strongly using its influence to get you to make a decision to shut the light off.
Darkness cannot win until you shut the light off.
The only place where success is measured is in your willingness to quickly and promptly obey the Word at the point and moments when you are being influenced by the forces of darkness. You have to choose to walk in the light of the Word instead of intentionally choosing to ignore the Word.
Psalm 119:105 says,
“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Lamp to my feet implies that you are closely watching every step that you take and make.
Light to your path implies that you can see what is ahead so you could plan where you intend to put your feet or to avoid pits, and other obstacles.
It also implies that you are walking in darkness and the only thing that can illuminate your path is the Word of God (see Romans 13:11-14).
Let the Word of God be the flashlight so you can see where you put your feet and also to look ahead so you can see where you are going.
Have you ever driven a car without your headlights on?
While it was safe, I wanted to see how dark it would be. Just for a split second at night, I shut off the lights and I couldn’t see a thing. It was pitch black.
Folks, it’s the same when we do not have the Word.
It is pitch black out there when we intentionally turn the light of His Word off.
“What are you doing with your moments, son?
You see, this question answered why I was so corrupt in my thinking.
Every moment, I thought about the sexual explicit forms of women. I meditated on it day and night. I woke up every morning, looking to get off. I went to bed almost every night, getting off. The saying is true. You are what you eat. You are what you meditate on. Whatever you sow, that is what you will reap. If you sow to the flesh, of the flesh you shall reap corruption.
When you sow corruption, you reap corruption.
On the other hand, I choked the Word of God out of my life. I didn’t give the Word any entrance into my own soul. I was dark, cold, and without life.
I was born again, but living a carnal life. There was no real connection to the Lord. I was living a life of hypocrisy until God was about to expose me. I don’t know what He would have done but I knew that time was running out for me.
The promise of exposure, because God never threatens, was enough for me to come clean.
You must learn to identify innocent moments that serve as subliminal attempts of the forces of darkness to get you to accept the seeds of darkness that, when watered, bloom into sexual immorality.
The newsstand, the grocery store magazine rack. The Internet, commercialized with sexually laced articles and images. Youtube. Sex laced jokes among carnal and sinful friends. Movies with bombshell seductresses every where. Soft porn at PG rated movies. Commercials with sex themes to sell their products. Store catalogues, and the women’s section of underwear in the stores.
These are all substitute porn.
In Romans 7:24, Paul said this….
“O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?”
Verse 25 gives the answer….
“I thank God- through Jesus Christ our Lord!”
These area are all blatant and seemingly innocent attempts of the forces of darkness to get your soul to thinking these substitute porn thoughts to lure you back into sexual bondage.
All seeds need cultivation. Meditation is the mulling over of things. That’s how the Word of God is cultivated and that’s how the seeds of darkness are cultivated too.
When I came clean about my Secret Sexual Sins, I needed to confront the deep dark secrets of lust in my own heart. I took a course called Way To Purity by Mike Cleveland of Setting Captives Free.
By the way, please go to my Sexual Addiction Recovery page and that will take you to the links to help you recover from sexual addiction.
By a few courses, I figured I would give them answers in their questionnaires that showed my Scriptural knowledge to “impress” them.
All of a sudden, they shared that many of those caught in the sins of porn and masturbation have a lot of Bible knowledge and no humility to be taught.
It was a revelation of the fact that pride and arrogance resided very strongly in me.
It was a revelation of the fact that deflection was a part of my ability to keep the truth from shining inside my dark heart. It’s one thing to be responsible for the sins committed but it is another thing to relinquish the male phycological gamesmanship in the perverted soul.
Just like alcoholics that think that they could handle their liquor. Sex addicts believe that they can handle sex.
I had to relinquish my ability to impress people because that was part of my cover for Secret Sexual Sins. If I could “wow” them, they would never know what was going on in my dark heart. I needed to humble myself and disarm this thing because it would be a matter of time before these same mechanisms that held me captive would be used again to enter into relapse.
Paul said this,
“Knowledge puffs up…”
The thing about battling warfare is that when we exalt ourselves above measure in the mind, a superiority complex enters and we believe that we got sexual addiction licked. And that’s exactly what the enemy waits for. He waits to see if you are going to be very prideful about God’s deliverance in your life. And it’s just a matter of time before the temptation comes to directly challenge your freedom and liberty in the Lord.
This is a work of grace and if you forget this, that God is the one that delivered you and that it is His Word, and not yours, that did the work, you will fall every time.
So what did you learn from all of this?
Can you take what was shared and be diligent to employ the Word?
Anyone can pray, cast out devils by shouting at them, and fall when you do not take heed.
But the real warfare is when you can employ the Word when there is no one in the flesh to impress. In other words, there is no one watching you so that they could applaud your “works.”
It’s the battle of sexual thoughts and what you choose to do with them that determines the true measure of your victory or defeat in the realm of Secret Sexual Sins.
As we were talking at a restaurant in Brooklyn after service, the Lord dropped a Scripture in my heart and mind.
Proverbs 21:1 says, “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord; Like the rivers; He turns it wherever He wishes.”
Granted, we all wish that the positive side according to God’s plans and purposes is preferred, but let’s look at something very closely.
Under the radar, the then candidate, Senator Obama gave two speeches that many, including the NAACP, SCLC, LGBT, and outspoken African American pastors unhesitatingly applauded.
Planned Parenthood and LGBT rights.
Very few opposed these speeches and it was only after the fact. Many pastors and professed believers didn’t oppose these positions.
An African American was finally voted into high office. For the first time, an African American assumes the presidency.
On the day of his election, the cameras were strategically placed in some African American churches. People were going crazier in church for the election than they would for praising God. I didn’t vote for the president because he didn’t come close to the Biblical standards of the Word of God. Many of those that did vote for him were oblivious to the demonic positions of abortion and homosexuality harbored by this candidate, now president.
Many will be judged accordingly.
All of a sudden, over three years after his election, the president makes his move and supports LGBT agenda. It wasn’t a crowning achievement but nonetheless, a notable stand from the political pinnacle of power as orchestrated by the behind the scenes LGBT agenda.
A sitting president supporting homosexual marriage.
Then we have North Carolina placing Amendment One on the ballot and by a mandate, marriage is to be between one man and one woman and it was now placed in their state constitution.
What is profound is that 31 states stand against homosexual marriage.
Then you have African Americans in the NAACP and SCLC attempting to “roundup” pastors to support the president.
That false cry of support fell flat on their heads and they saw the NAACP, SCLC, Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, Joseph Lowery, and Julian Bond, rebuked and kicked to the curb by independent thinking, God fearing, Bible preaching pastors and believers.
In other words, a severe break and blatant disrespect, and disregard of these phantom voices of the past and a clear departure (with no return) from traditional Democratic “toe the line” rhetoric.
Then they sent the hound dogs (IRS and White House staff, including the Justice Department head) to warn pastors of speaking against the president from the pulpit. It was cloaked to “get support for the president’s position” but we all know that it was about warning those who dared not support the president. Any pastor that went, should have read Proverbs 23:1-3 before accepting any request to be at the White House or invite them to come and speak to any group of pastors.
You pastors need to stop being star struck by high profile people and stop giving men more honor than the God that called you to preach.
I’ve already said from the pulpit I preach from that anyone who votes for President Obama is voting for homosexuality and abortion. If you vote for this president, you are violating the Word of God.
Hebrews 13:5b says….
“For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my Helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”
You are probably wondering why the title is there.
Here’s my point.
God did not use Obama to usher in these ungodly agendas. The Lord was never in bed with sin and it’s consequences. Rather, the Lord takes these things and begin to put the Word of the Lord for this era of time in the mouth of His faithful.
If it weren’t for their actions, the church would have went along like before. Like everything is rosy. In fact, to a certain extent, because of the economic conditions of our time, also known as “CONSEQUENTIAL IN HOUSE JUDGMENT IN THE CHURCH,” some of us is still preaching a prosperity gospel while living in Secret Sexual Sins.
You see, what the Lord has done is that people in the church have recognized that the church has played the harlot and prostituted itself with the devil. Some of us have come to our senses and we have put away the filthiness of the flesh and spirit and we have perfected holiness in the fear of God.
Some of us have recognized that we’ve grieved God long enough and that it is time to return to the Lord in repentance.
God, if there was a time for fasting, sackcloth and ashes, now would be the time.
But we are not in OT times.
Incidentally, many believe that there is only one aspect to fasting. Getting sensitive to the Spirit of God. It’s almost spooky.
Fasting in the OT was not about getting sensitive to the voice of the Spirit of God. There were only three persons in the OT that had the Holy Spirit upon them.
The prophet, High Priest, and king.
Although when you do stop eating and deprive the flesh of food, you are helping to deaden or deprive the flesh. There is an element of disciplining the flesh of its carnal ways, urges and impulses, and so forth.
But primarily, fasting was designed to deprive the body of its pleasure as an act of penance for sin. Sackcloth is clothing of the debased. Ashes is just throwing dirt on yourself to show God that you are nothing but dirt and filth and that you are showing God, through fasting, wearing debased clothing, and putting dirt on you to tell Him how sorry you are for sinning against God.
Jesus only fasted one time. The 40 days in the wilderness after the Holy Spirit came upon Him after His baptism in the river Jordan by John the Baptist to fulfill all righteousness.
So when you read these amazing Prayer and Fasting Books, if you do not see the original reason why they fasted in the OT, then you are being hoodwinked with a half truth.
So, with these things in mind, we now see that the hand of the enemy was on the president through Planned Parenthood, LGBT, NAACP, SCLC and other backdoor people to push sin from the Executive Office.
By doing this, the church has come alive in certain parts. Granted, not the entire church because many pastors and people that profess to be believers want their cake and eat it too. That is they want God and they want sin at the same time.
But here’s what happened.
Like never before, saints are standing up against sexual immorality and abortion. Like never before we are seeing a concerted effort to stand against the evils of our day.
Now what happens when “the king” resists the hand of the Lord?
We must remember what Proverb 14:34 says,
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”
As far as the church is concerned, when we fail to do what we are called to do, that is, preach against unrighteousness and preach acceptance of the sin of homosexuality, also known as “inclusionistas” we are in the crosshairs of the judgment of God.
The other thing that we must consider is the fact that inside the church, the lines have been drawn. Those that are pathetically sympathetic to the very thing that God is against and those that stand firm as the righteousness of God in Christ.
There is exclusivity with being a child of God.
You cannot love darkness and be in the light at the same time. You cannot love God and love the devil at the same time. You cannot love righteousness and love sin at the same time. You cannot include sin where holy is exclusive. How dare you bring your unrepentant sin filled heart into the holy temple? It’s fine if you are to bring your sin to repent of it. But if you intend to sin when service is over, you are a bald faced hypocrite and you are deceived James 4:4.
It’s only the mercy of God that what we have experienced so far has caused considerable damage to people but at this point, what is about to come will pale in comparison. When the church refuses to do a rally call to repent and we go about our ways (preaching Christianity soft messages), we are ignoring Psalm 15 and Psalm 91.
A. W. Tozer said, “We must think rightly about God.”
You are either in sin or you are in righteousness.
You can’t have it both ways. Your death is proof that you cannot have it both ways.
Sin will be judged after death. Just be sure you are not on the wrong side of God when you stand before Him.
Father, we thank you for what is happening. Not the sin and wickedness that is before our eyes, but for the revelation of the fact that You were never caught off guard, and that you are working on the behalf of those that seek to put You first in all we do. Our eyes are open to the truth of Your Word; that we are to live according to the righteous standards of the Word of God regardless of what people think. We pray that they would repent and turn from their wicked ways and walk in the light as You are in the light. For there is no darkness in You. Forgive us of our wicked ways. For playing the harlot and prostituting ourselves with the devil. From here on, we choose to walk in holiness. For there, in Christ, by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony, is our complete victory over sin.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Thanks for reading.
Many in the LGBT community are very fearful.
At this point, they feel safe and that’s not a good place to be. In the battle for the hearts, minds, and bodies of men, they feel that they have enough momentum to enact their agenda with little resistance.
At one point, it seemed like they would steam roll their agenda across the country.
They counted on the sleeping giant to just roll over and not care.
Inattentive giants seldom awaken unless something extraordinary happens.
It’s amazing that when a person makes a statement that it may become the one thing that shakes the giant alive to action.
This battle is not over by a long shot. This struggle is just getting started.
LGBT has some sympathetic activist jurors. They have strongholds in the NAACP and other African American Civil Rights organizations. They have made their case to certain rogue local churches and pastors and bishops in certain denomination and non denominational churches. They have their own churches that are complete LGBT “safe havens and sanctuaries.”
LGBT has local, state, and federal politicians that passed legislation calling for the sin of homosexuality to be viewed as a sexual orientation that must not be discriminated against. All hate language against homosexuals is bigotry, discrimination, and will not be tolerated.
LGBT has found a way to accuse the true church of being insensitive, intolerant, unloving, discriminators, and they place churches, anti gay articles, speeches, preaching, and righteous blogs on watch lists.
Such a compiling of a watch list is similar to Watergate activities.
No, LGBT is not sending second rate burglars to a building.
However, as a group, they are acting like the late former president Richard Nixon in trying to locate who his enemies are and place them on a list to attack them later.
LGBT & GLEN is forging ahead to indoctrinate children in the public school systems. They are attempting to use truancy laws and other stop gap measures to prevent parents from pulling their children out of schools where LGBT indoctrination material is taught.
In NYC alone, there is a concerted effort to discontinue churches from using public schools as places of worship for small congregations that cannot afford to rent out a facility of their own due to the high cost of leasing commercial space. That’s because commercial property owners are paying considerable amounts of property tax and cannot afford to reduce their rent.
As one attorney put it to us, “property tax never goes down. It always increases.”
This tactic is a clear illustration of the fact that the world is attempting to push the righteous voice of the church out.
That’s the picture that is painted.
It’s not pretty.
One thing that we must be aware of.
God was never caught off guard.
All of these things He saw before time began. He knows the names of every individual that would thumb their noses at Him. He knows the names of all the people that would stand in opposition to His will.
It’s comforting to know that God knows your name. It’s reassuring that the God of the entire universe knew that you would be against Him. Comforting in the sense that God doesn’t want to drive you back into the closet.
The objective of the church is not chase you back into the places of darkness.
Quite the contrary.
The Lord desired to pull you out of darkness and be conveyed in the kingdom of the Son of His love. However, He also knew before time began that there will be those that will not come out of the dark place and remain in the sin of homosexuality.
According to the Lord Jesus, “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God, and this is the condemnation, that light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light , lest his deeds should be exposed.”
These gay Christians are the same ones that practice the sin of homosexuality.
The Word of the Lord for gay Christians is Matthew 7:21-25.
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? ’And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
The true mark of a true Christian or child of God is when they depart from iniquity and embrace the Savior, departing from sin.
The true mark of a sinner is when they stay in the sin of homosexuality or any sin for that matter. Because sin is the identifying characteristic that you are a child of the devil.
John, the eyewitness apostle of the Lamb said in 1 John 3:7-9,
“Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.”
It is clear that LGBT has no fear of God. Otherwise, they would recognize that if they practice the sin of homosexuality, they are not in the kingdom of God.
As John said, “…let no one deceive you.”
They do not think that they will be judged.
So they forge ahead with their diabolical agenda.
LGBT’s Worst Fear?
Defections are happening all over the place.
People that they once counted on to be loyal and faithful to the cause of propagating the sin of homosexuality are defecting. One by one, they are quitting the lifestyle. They had enough of the shame, pain, fear, rejection, depression, and sin.
One by one, the lie that “it gets better” is just that.
And the Bible is true.
Jesus is Lord and Savior. They are finding grace to help in time of need. Ex-homosexuals and ex-lesbians are quitting and coming to Christ. All over the United States, the defection is picking up steam.
Another thing that is picking up steam is that African Americans are finally seeing that their racial struggle was hijacked and is being used to cloak the sin of homosexuality. So much so that when the president voiced his support for gay marriage, the true African American pastors are standing with God to speak against the president’s ill fated conclusion.
He is sending the Attorney General, and other officials to gain support of African American pastors to get them to somehow support the president. It appears that the president’s announcement wasn’t taken well by maverick pastors that refused to line up with rogue leaders of the NAACP, Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, Joseph Lowery and other men that claim to be in the ministry that is sympathetic to the sin of homosexuality.
A lack of support from the African American community only spells trouble for the president. Any solid support that is missing only ensures that the conservative base has great momentum that may pose a similar problem like in the 2004 election.
Independent African American pastors must not fear the establishment.
The NAACP establishment and their leaders never had the best interest of African Americans and they never will. They are an institution that should have moved in righteousness and not unrighteousness.
African American pastors that are somewhat sensitive to God and His Word must make for the exits because the hand of God is against you should you stay and support the killing of our own babies through Planned Parenthood. Excuse me, Eugenics. Excuse me, Planned Abortionhood.
You are either for God or against Him. You can’t be both.
African American pastors that are sympathetic to the NAACP’s position about same sex marriages and LGBT causes is a position that violates the Word of God. Over half of all HIV/AIDS cases are African American. How can you support the sin of homosexuality knowing that half of all new cases, annually, come from your own people.
Pastor, you are no different than the devil if you support the sin of homosexuality through same sex unions. The devil is lying to you and through you. You need to repent before God before the heavy hand of the Lord sweeps through. For “the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men…”
African American pastor, you are doing more to destroy your own people than preaching righteousness based on the Bible. There is no place for you to hide for cover for you will be exposed and dealt with.
Paul said it clear with no wiggle room.
“Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord.”
LGBT’s Worst Fears?
African American pastors are leading the way to speak truth to the people. Not just to African American parishioners but to all races. We are exposing the lies for what they are.
We are discipling people that have SSA and sexual immorality issues.
We want lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender people to come to our churches.
A REAL CHURCH WHERE NON CONDEMNING DELIVERANCE takes place.
We know of individuals that changed their physical bodies from male to female and went back because they know that it was against the will of God.
LGBT’s Worst Fears?
We know of many homosexuals and lesbians that have come out of the closet, lived in the sin of homosexuality, only to meet the true Lover of their souls, and gave their lives to Jesus. It is happening. They are finally waking up to the fact that sin is not the way to live.
They are finding peace, joy, and, true love in the Savior.
LGBT participants, it’s not too late.
The pain and suffering ends when you recognize that Jesus will truly satisfy you deepest longing and desires. One person at a time, they are making a way to the exits of the contradictions and lies that held them bound.
Ex-homosexuals and lesbians. Ex-sexual immoral people.
