Recently, I was ambushed by the ad section of FB (Facebook).
Everyone knows about the “Ad” section on FB. It’s the advertisement slide show. New friends to connect with as well as other interesting ads that connect with your taste constantly flashes before your eyes. These items are connected to your profile and preferences. With certain FB potential friends, sometimes they wear stuff (low cleavage items) to catch your attention. Some women that profess to know Jesus do it all the time.
While there are nasty male preachers and believers, there are nasty women that profess to know Jesus too.
Yes, ladies, it is a problem.
Femininity is a power that females use to attract men, whether men or women are married or not.
Females that profess to know the Lord should know better than to flaunt themselves but they do it anyway.
When these women are successful, and because of a lack of discipline, males and females engage in fornication and adultery. The male is called a fool and the female is called sexually immoral, whores, harlots, and seductresses.
It is just as bad with males.
Straight, as well as homosexuals advertise themselves too. For those that struggle with SSA (same sex attraction) issues, FB constantly reminds those that were delivered from the sin of homosexuality of the “fun.”
For those that were recently delivered from Secret Sexual Sins, the sins are still “fresh in their flesh.”
Many items pass through and every now and then, you will see things that should be flagged.
Paul said this, “For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.”
Love of money is what drives all kinds of evil.
When the Word of righteousness is brought to bear on unrighteousness, money will be used to stop someone from getting delivered by the power of God. That’s because when a person gets delivered, they will not spend any more money to watch porn, go to the bars, straight or gay, they will not buy condoms, no longer will they to go to the doctor to get treated for STDs, and abortion would not be an issue.
God broke the addiction which breaks the money chain, and that’s why they do incredible warfare to get you to return. This is the reason they hook little children early. In the food chain, they have to keep a supply of people willing to go to great lengths to have something fulfilled. The addictions, the desires, the false sense of satisfaction. All of these things are equated to keeping a person in the dark to commit dark acts of depraved indifference to themselves and to others to satisfy themselves.
In most cases, people are willing to spend money on satisfaction, knowing that they need to pay for rent, lights, gas, and other necessities of life. Hence, the reason behind the economic judgment on the church and the United States.
Pleasure comes before responsibility.
While fallen man knows the limits, as long as a man is willing to chase after certain things, the money chain will not be broken. It’s the theory of the predator in operation. You gotta stay addicted because I gotta live.
The moment you get delivered from the addiction, they will look for others to remain addicted, or they suffer.
Folks, I have chosen to let the world suffer.
I gotta stay saved and they can be saved too.
That’s why there is such a fight against righteousness.
Everything is connected. Drugs, alcohol, medicine, hospitals, clothing, cars, hotels and motels, make up, and food.
When you put up the Word of God, (not destructive criticism, there is a difference), someone will get offended because somewhere in the chain, the money is about to get cut off.
If you study the book of Acts, particularly the 19th chapter, the gospel came to the city of Ephesus. The city of Ephesus was a commerce area with a population of over 300,000. The coppersmiths were in business making statues of Diana and they were raking in the ducats.
Diana is a multi breasted idol distantly connected to the Asherah or Baal forms of worship. Infertility is connected to sexual immorality.
The coppersmiths were making money off of these perverted statues and the people brought their sorcery books and other forms of the occult to be burned. The revival was so powerful verse 20 revealed the outcome of a direct move of God.
“So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.”
At the end of the revival that Paul, Aquilla and Priscilla founded, and Timothy, later sent by Paul to be the First Bishop of Ephesus, the membership or people that regularly attended that church numbered over 100,000. John, the apostle of the Lamb and Mary, the mother of Jesus, were among members there.
According to tradition, the bones of Mary and John were discovered in the region. Also remember that John was exiled on the isle of Patmos and when he had a vision on the Lord’s day, he was given instructions by the Head of the church to give a letter to the messenger or pastor of the church at Ephesus.
Here’s what I wanted to get to.
The revenue was jeopardized as a result of the gospel being preached. Sales declined on occult books. Sales declined on spells to cast upon people to curse them or cause them to fall under a perverted spell. Sales declined on the purchase of Diana of the Ephesians. They all went to the theater. Paul, who wanted to enter the middle of the riot to preach, was kept from sealing the deal. I do not think Paul would have been harmed but then again, you never know. For two hours, the people shouted.
The gospel threatened their economy.
The effective preaching of the gospel caused a riot.
Ineffective preaching will not cause a riot.
No one will bother you but when you strike a cord, you will see them come at you because you are a threat to their economy.
On a different note, when truth comes, people act like little babies and cry to momma FB to block, remove, or close the accounts. Granted, I’ve said some things that definitely raised a few eyebrows, but not worthy of a block, removal, or closing of an account. There are other tactics that is utilized. Such as temporarily cutting off your account, freeze certain pages, eliminate the share button on certain items detrimental to cash-flow, and image dressing.
However, there are some ads that will not get blocked that come very close to violating obscenity laws. And the use of vulgar language is constantly seen on the social networks, but nothing is done to address it. However, put the Word of God up and God’s Word to the sinner is obscene and vulgar.
The ambush that took place was probably generated because of the articles that I post regarding Secret Sexual Sins and other related items.
When it comes to applying the Word of God in the world, you will draw much criticism from those that are not in the Body of Christ masquerading as bona fide believers and especially those that profess to be believers in the Body of Christ, but live in sin.
Sadly, those that profess to be believers and live below the level of Matthew 7:21-23 are the wayside people that Jesus spoke of in Luke 8:12 that let the devil steal the Word from their hearts, unless they believe.
Anyway, the ambush was salacious ads. One by one, of women. Naked, cleavage/scantily clad, and hand covering certain obvious parts.
Some of you that were delivered from the sin of homosexuality may have seen ads that are connected to the gay lifestyle like, gay cruises, bars, parades, and things of this nature.
Some people, including misguided, gullible children of God will not think nothing of it and tell you to just ignore it. Some will tell you that you are misguided, gullible, and into this stuff too much.
These are the same believers that really do not understand the wiles of the devil.
As a side note, this is true spiritual warfare when images are thrown at you and you have to exercise discipline not to yield to these temptations.
You intercessory prayer folks that border on space cadets think that you understand spiritual warfare and cry out to the principalities and powers, and command them to come down, in Jesus’ name. There is no Scriptural evidence of the Lord Jesus ever carrying out that level of warfare you claim to talk about. The devils He cast out were in people. Within the safe confines of the four walls, many claim to chase demons out of cities. Yet, the demons remain at large in the people on the street corner.
We think that prayer changes things. Wrong! It’s the God that answers prayer in accordance with His will that changes things. it’s time to dispel the myth of non Biblically unsubstantiated empowerment.
Anyway, true spiritual warfare is when you have been inundated with things that pull on your flesh. You resist by renewing the mind with the Word of God. You resist by prayer. You resist by praise. You resist by turning off the Internet, shutting down FB, and cut off the avenues of demonic attack.
You must remember, if you keep yourself, it is not by walking through the fire. It is by keeping away from the fire.
Jesus prayed, “…and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.”
Paul said, “Avoid the very appearance of evil.” And “Flee fornication.”
You go to the movie theaters and the trailers are full of salacious ads. Some of you have already made up your minds to go see that movie, not realizing that the devil is preaching to you. The devil is ministering to you the word of death. The devil is ministering to you the very things that pull on your flesh and mind.
Brothers are seduced and they file every feminine body part to fantasize and masturbate off of later.
So it is with these ads that come at me. I am firmly aware of the intent and I identify it as a clear and present danger to the sanctification and holiness of God established in me by the grace of God.
You must recognize quickly that the enemy will not let you off the hook when you claim to be delivered. You must be able to run like Joseph. No man can stand where he once was conquered. We must utilize every means of escape according to 1 Corinthians 10:13.
I am not going to leave nothing to chance. When you do, that is a position of pride that the enemy was waiting on. When you think that you can handle it, this is where you are the most vulnerable. Flee and avoid is the position of strength. Stay and camp is the position of weakness. Grace works when we flee and avoid. Foolishness works when we stay and camp.
Therefore, the ads targeted against the righteous is not just harassment. It is a vulgar form of perversion to stop righteousness from destroying their bottom line at your expense. It is also a double whammy. It is also designed to pull on your flesh to get you back in the dark world of Secret Sexual Sins. Take a good look at certain news on the Internet, and you you will see the same thing.
Somewhere on that page, there will be a woman or a man to sexually attract your attention.
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations (reasonings) and every high thing (salacious pictures) that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
Facebook makes a living on ads, but you have to be careful, child of God.
Luis Leon, Episcopal Priest, Will Deliver Obama’s Inauguration Benediction, Replacing Louie Giglio
Many of you are saying that he is just giving a benediction. It will be a benediction that God will not hear. The prayer may have well been addressed to the devil himself.
Psalm 66:18 says, “If I regard iniquity in my heart the Lord will not hear me.”
You cannot practice sin and practice righteousness at the same time. This is the very thing that many preachers and believers know based on the Word of God. You cannot live in sin and expect God to accept you in the condition of sin.
Here is what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23.
“Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!”
If you try to tell this to anyone in sin, they will tell you that you are full of hate, but here is the thing. You try to tell God to accept your condition unconditionally when the Lord sent His Son unconditionally to save you from the condition of sin you are in.
Notice what Paul said in Romans 5:18-21.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.”
You see, salvation’s purpose is to change your heart.
“The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked,” Jeremiah 17:9 tells us.
It’s the condition of the heart that the Lord is after, but man refuses to have his heart changed so they reinvent everything that God initially instituted so that what man makes conforms to his own dark heart.
There is a clear intention to weaken the church by finding weak willed leaders to accept sin in the church. From bisexual pastors to perverted bishops that are open homosexuals. They want to have God but they do not want His Word of righteousness and true holiness.
So there is a double effort to reduce the pillar of truth into a pile of rubble while erecting a “church” according to their liking. This church must have teeth. The State Church of LGBT must have governmental power to exist. That’s why there has been a concerted effort to engage in politics, rewrite Civil Rights, suppress the truth, silence the truth through the legislative and judicial process, and infiltrate political power by being elected into office.
A man once said that the most powerful preachers were Black. There is no question that there are many preachers across the globe that are not African descent are just as powerful. There is no question in my mind that some of the greatest preachers also were Anglo Saxon and other races. If you look at African history, many firsts were achieved.
However, we see that in some African American preachers today, there is an unwillingness to confront the issues of our day from a Biblical perspective. We find that many are comfortable talking about issues that would better our people (prosperity gospel, motivational messages, coaching) but we fail to realize that sin is detrimental to any race.
Proverbs 14:34 says,
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”
As Paul said, “Woe (doomed) is me if I PREACH not the gospel.”
I’m not called to motivate or coach. When God spoke to me and called me into the ministry, He called me to PREACH!
Sadly, some have accepted the sin of homosexuality and relegated it to Civil Rights. Sin and Civil Rights are two separate issues. The Blood of Jesus has removed sin. Man must accept his race and learn to be mindful that no matter what your race is, the love of Jesus bridges the gap.
Some African American pastors are not quick to speak against sin but very quick to deal with race issues.
Many have abandoned the call of God to enter into the political arena. The one thing that helps people is to have a change of heart that the gospel of Jesus Christ provides through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. We preachers have come to find out that not many people want to turn from sin and sometimes, discouragement sets in and such discouragement drives us from the pulpit.
In most cases, it drives many to Secret Sexual Sins to appease the lack of satisfaction in making a gospel difference in people’s lives. People are hard to minister to because of a variety of issues and challenges that many people face. We pastors tend to forget that we cannot fix everything and we cannot change anybody.
With this, a vacuum of power and influence was left wide open. In many of our White denominations, many have forsaken the way of the Lord. Intellectually, they have reasoned that God has changed and are now incorporating LGBT principles in their churches. Joseph Ward calls it, “progressive.”
GCMWatch.com, a while back sounded the alarm about gay denominations emerging.
In progressive minded church people and leaders, LGBT has found weak willed leaders that became sympathetic to the sin of homosexuality. Some that resist are called bigots, racists, discriminant, and other racial slurs that African Americans are accustomed to use when confronted with racist people.
Predominantly, and sadly, White homosexual folks have taken on our plight. As I would say, put my skin on for one split second and then you will know what true racism is all about.
There is a difference between sin and skin.
One person put it like this.
“When I walk outside, I did not come out of the closet another color. I walk out as a Black man. You do not have to ask me about my “orientation” of skin color. When I walk out that door, you can easily see, without a shadow of doubt, that I am a Black man. But when you need to know if I am straight or gay, you have to ask because the pigmentation of my skin generally tells you my ethnicity. My skin color doesn’t tell you anything about my sexuality.”
In a nutshell, Joseph Ward said that “Christians are consistently becoming more visible advocates for full inclusion of our LGBT neighbors.”
I and many other true believers have not become one because of our immoveable stand on the standard of the Word of God. Moving from the Word of God is non-negotiable according to James 4:4 and 1 John 2:15-17. We will be glad to lead you to The Lord, but I will not let you lead me from my Lord and Savior. The progressive thinking of sinners always lead people astray and away from The Lord to commit perverse acts that is prohibited in Scripture.
It’s amazing that people want to change God instead of being changed by God. They always claim that God is wrong and behind the times, when people in their reprobate minds are wrong and behind the times.
Catch up to the way God thinks.
Joseph Ward also said, Christianity does not have to be exclusive of LGBT equality, and when it is, people are leaving the church.”
He really wanted to say Christ does not have to be exclusive…
You can’t make this stuff up. LGBT, you can’t have the righteousness of God and be in the condition of sin. As Jesus said, “You must be born again!”
Therefore, we who believe the written inerrant Word of God dare not progress from the God who gave it.

Washington National Cathedral now performs same sex marriages. In the African American churches, gay bishops are emerging in record numbers. One by one, we are seeing catholicism enter the ranks of African American churches to give these bishops legitimacy in ministry.
However, we all know that God is not pleased and God never approved such things according to Leviticus 18:22, Malachi 3:6, and Romans 1:18-32.
They do not see that the place at the highest political table is just a token. The real power behind the White House has controlled what we see.
It is amazing that only 2% of the American population is homosexual, yet, they are able to wield power as if they are a massive majority that dares to be challenged. It reminds me of the Wizard of Oz where a short man behind the curtain is so insecure of himself that he needs loudspeakers, smoke, and people fearful of him to be accepted.
Such as it is with LGBT. They want to be able to steamroll their way into the political system, overthrow the faith of many, and establish their own State Church. These are telltale signs of the end of a superpower. Just look at the book of Daniel and every major dominating power rose and comes to an end.
Psalm 75:6-10 says this….
“For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, and exalts another.
For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is fully mixed, and He pours it out; surely its dregs shall all the wicked of the earth drain and drink down.
But I will declare forever, I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. All the horns of the wicked I will also cut off, but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
Notice also what Paul said in Acts 17:24-31.
“God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.
And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said,
For we are also His offspring. Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising.
Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
Take a good look at the Inauguration. Babylon is emerging. In order for a new world order to emerge, a superpower must decline.
Spiritually, morally, economically, technologically, educationally, and militarily.
While some states are holding out and establishing their hold against same sex marriages, we are seeing LGBT impose their end around game. If you think that the incident at Sandy Hook High School is just an isolated incident, it sparked outrage regarding guns in the US. So much so that many in political circles desire to change the 2nd Amendment.
The founding fathers, in their wisdom saw that if you take the weapons, you rule the people with an iron rod. Such as it was with Germany in 1938. Such as it is in North Korea. When a people have no weapons to defend themselves, it is inevitable that the people will be ruled with an iron fist.
The founding fathers knew that one day America would attempt to make changes in the Constitution and they set a very high bar to prevent drastic changes from taking place easily. However, if you see them make changes in the Constitution, then it is very easy to set it aside. That’s why when you see a usurping of a document that exceeds the wisdom of men today, it’s because Babylon is sure to emerge.
All of these things are interconnected because this is the end times.
So do not be surprised when the State Church of LGBT gets a stronghold in the United Staes.
Just be ready as Jesus said, “For your redemption draws nears.”
GCMWatch wrote a very interesting blog regarding Christianity Today and a person purporting their version of Gay Christianity. The link for this article is listed below.
For the last two decades or more, we’ve seen the devil and his children concoct lies. So much so that some professed believers take the bait every time.
Fish are not dumb BUT, I can’t understand why they cannot see the hook. I guess it’s because the bait look so good that the hook is completely ignored. To a fish, the hook is not considered a threat.
Every fish that ended up on the dinner plate never thought that this invitation to dinner would be their one and only invitation. Talk about The Last Supper.
When you are hungry, you do not care what else is around the bait. In fact, a little extra along with the bait might be a good thing. Then you watch your friends get pulled into the boat and they ain’t coming back. Perhaps there’s a bigger meal on the boat? You could be missing out on a great party, young fish.
Not that fish know what a boat is, let alone that an endless supply of what fish eat is in abundance on the boat.
When it comes to deception, especially when you have your own copy of the Bible, and a wealth of material to help you to understand the Word of God correctly, the itch I’m scratching has an open bleeding sore when I see incomprehension of the Scriptures.
Oh, by the way, I know that you are looking at the word “Christianology.”It is a made up word. I didn’t want to use Christology because it is an actual Systematic Theology Chapter about the “study of Christ.” In Systematic Theology, it is an exhaustive study of the major subjects of the Bible.
In most books there is the highlight or outline of topics that identify the Christ. However, in good theological books, you want an exhaustive or comprehensive study.
When it comes to finding Scripture about Christ, you will never see any connection to Christ committing or condoning sin. You will see Him forgiving sin. You will see Him identifying what is sin. You will see Him die for sin. But never will you see Jesus excuse sin. If Jesus committed or condoned sin, His blood is invalid, and His life and claim to be God, the Son, is severely, and irreparably compromised. Hence, Jesus must be disqualified from any consideration as our Lord and Savior.
We all know that the world hates true adherents of Christ. Like some of you Ghandi fans. Love Christ, hate Christians, The word “Christian” is a spiritual slur hurled at followers or adherers of Christ that do what the Lord said according to Matthew 7:21-27. You can’t do part of what He said and call yourself a full-time disciple or adherent of Christ (see John 15:1-8).
It just hit me and I never would have thought about it but there are a lot of professed believers that practice Adultery Christianity. Fornication Christianity. Bisexuality Christianity. Pornography Christianity. Masturbation Christianity.
Rightfully so, Gay Christianity is at the forefront of today’s “progressive” professed lip service, heart far from God people but the forerunner of Gay Christianity is Adultery Christianity. Fornication Christianity. Bisexuality Christianity. Pornography Christianity. Masturbation Christianity.
So now we see a concoction of false doctrine intermingled with truth. I mean. Come on. The devil cannot sell a lie. He must have an element of truth and enough people accepting this mixture. That is the devil must have people that are without any measure of literate comprehension of the Word of God to accept this poisonous mixture in order for more fish to get into the boat.
Sort of like watching people chew on something that looks good but it doesn’t taste very good at all, however, with a smile on their face, they all continue to eat. All the while encouraging others to try it. Dining to death.
When you practice lawlessness or unrighteousness, commonly called sin, you are not a follower of Christ. So the best way to change that (that is to deny the truth of the gospel) is to pretend or imitate a true child of God while practicing the thing that God is against, and get as many Biblically illiterate people to join the party in the boat above.
As I have said before, Jesus died to set us free from sin, not so that we can practice sin.
People sometimes forget why God sent His Son into the world.

There are many professed believers that live under false pretense. Their spiritual “dialect” and “diction” sounds so much like those in church but when you look closely, you see some serious flaws. Unbeknownst to a lot of people, Vision Church, represented by a homosexual leader, O.C. Allen that not only affirms the gay lifestyle but the entire spectrum of LGBT.
All over the United States, counterfeit churches with self produced documents and documents from questionable legitimate organization that once shunned the sin of homosexuality, is cropping up quickly. In NYS alone, there are over 350 gay affirming churches.
The Scriptures that come to mind is this….
Matthew 13:24-30 says….. “Another parable He put forth to them, saying: 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. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. So the servants of the owner came and said to him, Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares? He said to them, An enemy has done this. The servants said to him, Do you want us then to go and gather them up? But he said, No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”
The amazing thing about parables is the whenever someone asked Jesus to explain a parable, He readily shares the secret behind the use of nature to explain spiritual things.
Matthew 13:36-43 says…. “Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered and said to them: He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
Just because Jesus sent the multitude away, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the multitude was prohibited from asking Jesus what this parable meant.
First, the location. Jesus said…“The field is the world…” Some people make the mistake and think that the field is the church. It isn’t because Jesus said that “The field is the world…”
As with anything that the Lord does, the false need a prototype. Truth is the prototype. The devil always opposes truth so he provides alternatives or counterfeits.
The purpose is to deceive others from accepting the truth. Since the Garden, this is satan’s weapon of choice. Question the truth. Jesus points this out in John 8:44 in speaking to the leadership.
“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.”
For instance. Remember in the first chapter of Job when the sons of God appeared or presented themselves before the Lord, and then satan appears, and the Lord God asked satan a question? “Where have you been?”
What was satan’s response?
“Going to and fro….”
Then the Lord said, “Have you noticed my servant Job, one that fears God and shuns evil.”
satan answered, “Does Job fear God for nothing? You have placed an hedge around him…”
His answer revealed that the devil was looking for a way around Job to destroy him. So the devil lied. Some say it wasn’t a lie. Well, when you do not give a direct answer to a direct question, but deflect and divert, it is an evasive answer. Because the Lord knows everything and the devil knows it, he still finds a way to lie about it.
Second, the tares come from “…the wicked one.”
In the world, there are many impostors churches, leaders, and people.
In the house of the righteous, evil should not be in the house, but in the world, evil is found all over the place. Side by side, evil tries to get close to the righteous for legitimate purposes.
The first thing about tares is that the seed is dark and the seed of the wheat is much lighter.
The second distinguishing feature of tares is that it is poisonous.
Easton’s Bible Dictionary offers this assessment of tares. Hold on to your hats.
“TARES: the bearded darnel, mentioned only in Matt 13: 25-30. It is the Lolium temulentum, a species of rye- grass, the seeds of which are a strong soporific poison. It bears the closest resemblance to wheat till the ear appears, and only then the difference is discovered. It grows plentifully in Syria and Palestine.”
Take note of the word, “soporific.” It means “a drug that induces sleep or sleep inducing.”
Note that it “resembles wheat UNTIL the ear appears, and only then, the difference is discovered.”
When you have professed believers tell you that there is nothing wrong with “gay marriage,” at first, many considered it as misguided rhetoric. Then the Lord clued me in on James 4:4, 1 John 2:14-17, and 2 Corinthians 14-18. By accepting the poison as a result of the seed planted by the enemy, you are sleeping.
No wonder Paul occasionally said to “Wake up out of sleep and Christ shall give you light.”
Or, Paul said, “Those that sleep, sleep at night…”
When you are walking in darkness and not in the light, you are sleeping at night. The reason? The poisonous soporific.
Tares that induce sleep.
Sadly, in our own congregations are professed believers that are sympathetic to the sin that the Lord declared, “…an abomination.” Anytime you are adamantly sympathetic to a position that the Lord is against, and you refuse to see the Word of God and the truth about sin, you are hostile.
Look at what Paul said in Romans 8:7-8 from the Amplified Bible (AMP).
“Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever].
[That is] because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to Gods Law; indeed it cannot.
So then those who are living the life of the flesh [catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature] cannot please or satisfy God, or be acceptable to Him.”
Professed believers are hostile towards God because God calls their sin out and when they begin to defend an indefensible position, they are impostors. Many will say that this is a tough saying and where is the compassion? On the cross of Christ is His compassion. God demonstrated His love for man by sending His Son to die for the sins of man; condemning sin in His flesh.
At anytime, we can repent, be forgiven of sin, and walk in newness of life. Impostors is a strong word but until you willingly no longer defend the very thing that God is against, you remain an impostor. Impostors are governed by the flesh and they refuse to submit to the law of God. As the (AMP) says, they are “catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature.”
But a Genuine Believer caters to God and His Word. No matter how you feel about the matter of the sin of homosexuality, the Word rises above your feeling. The Word doesn’t even consider your feelings. The Word wants you to consider the Word. Never mind your feelings. God demands obedience to His Word.
That’s why when you talk about the issues of the day, if the Word of God is not final authority in your life, you are an impostor.
You can’t SAY that you are holy and practice unholiness or lawlessness. Many impostors that carry tares do so to poison the world and even genuine believers should they turn on the Lord and become sympathetic to the sin that God is against.
In John chapter four, Jesus was dealing with a wounded woman that was an impostor. When she talked about worship, she wasn’t serious. Jesus reminded her that the Father seeks those that worship in spirit and in truth.
An impostor is one that “makes deceitful pretenses, or the act of giving a false appearance. Hence, pretending.”
Jesus said that “By their fruits you shall know them.”
When the woman sins were exposed, she had no choice but to come clean about her life.
Sadly, some prophets of our day are impostors. They can’t call out the sins of others because of their own sins.
She had five husbands and the one that she was with was not her husband, yet, she talked about her worship of God which was under the guise of false pretense.
We have the same thing happening in our churches. Professed believers that worship God but is having immoral sex. Professed believers that worship God in the dance, praise and worship, musicians, preachers, but is committing adultery, fornication, watching porn, masturbating, are bisexual, and homosexual.
False pretense and impostors.
Yes, you’ve read this right. Jesus was tempted to be a homosexual.
But first, this will be very offensive to some of you that still put out those false depictions of what Jesus looked like.
You know. Michael Angelo’s depiction of Christ. It is disturbing for anyone that knows the Bible to see these pictures. Years ago, someone said that by putting a “White” Jesus up it would impose upon Black folk that Jesus is white. Sort of like an additional slave mentality kind of thing.
I go to the south and when you walk into the homes of some black folk, you see these depictions of Jesus, John and Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King.
Am I talking right up in here?
I don’t mind John, Robert, and Martin. But Jesus?
Get rid of that picture. Get rid of that Black Jesus too. Get rid of those pictures. I know that you are not listening to me or the Bible. You’ve spent good money on those pictures and you are going to keep them on your wall. That’s fine for you. It’s not a heaven and hell issue, but is it?
You have fixated in your mind that this is what Jesus looked like. Just close your eyes and act like you are about to pray. Now Who do you see?
A white or a black Jesus.
The sad thing is that in most of these houses, folk don’t do what He said do, and yet, they have a picture, supposedly of what people want you to think He looked like.
No one that knows their Bible will ever put up one of those pictures again. All on FB, you see these white depictions of a sun tanned, slick haired, clean shaven or mustache and trimmed beard wearing, soft or effeminate looking Jesus.
I say again, that the way some people live, most of them will do things regardless of what the Bible says. That tells me that Jesus is your Savior, but He is not your Lord. There is a difference. There are those that call Him Lord but will not do what He said.
Jesus is a symbolical Lord to you and not really Lord over you. If He is your Lord, you would do what He said.
Why don’t people understand this?
Because it’s religious thinking and not relationship reality.
Note what the Bible says about the depiction of Jesus in Isaiah 53:1-2 (NKJ).
“Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.”
Listen to another translation…
“My servant grew up in the LORD’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him.”
Yet, in our minds is a fixation and depiction of a beautiful man.
The stained glass windows and pictures painted as murals in our churches point to a Savior. Folks, read Isaiah 53:1-2 and then look at the pictures you have and there is a very big difference in what you see and what your Bible says. Then why mention this at all? Because take a good look. No one can tell if this person that was used to depict Jesus is homosexual.
However, pictures can mean a thousand things. We are now seeing an attempt to put two Joseph’s up in a nativity scene and the baby Jesus. The far reaching affects of images play a major role in what people think. Just look in your newspapers or go to the Internet. Images drives things.
This leads into the discussion.
Yes, Jesus was tempted to be a homosexual. He was also tempted to be a drug addict. He was tempted to be a fornicator. He was tempted to commit sexual sins. He was tempted to be a robber, a thief, a murderer, a liar. He was tempted in all points like as we were, yet, He didn’t sin.
Hebrews 4:14-15 says…..
“Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.”
Paul said this in 2 Corinthians 5:21….
“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
Another translation says this…
“For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.”
Directly after the baptism of Jesus, the Holy Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil for 40 days. According to Biblical numerology, 40 is the number of testings and trials. During that time of testing, because Hebrews 4:15 says that Jesus was tempted in all points, this includes the sin of homosexuality.
So the beginning part of verse 15 is even more profound.
“For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses…”
Jesus is not out of touch with your weaknesses. He is not a High Priest who is aloft from what you have experienced or what you are going through. He knows intricately what you are dealing with. The pain of being tempted and falling into sin. He feels you. The pain of relapse after relapse. He feels you. The frustration of obeying the urges and impulses. The mind and the flesh dictating your every move where everything revolves around committing the same sin. He feels your pain.
However, it’s not enough to know that He knows what you are going through. He made every effort to free you from sin. It’s one thing to watch suffering. It’s one thing to know what I am going through but it is a entirely different thing to deliver me from what I am going through.
The rest of Hebrews 4, particularly, verse 16 is the answer.
“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
What does obtaining mercy have to do with this? The throne of grace is where the Lord offers mercy. We know that when we sin, we need mercy. One person puts mercy like this.
Mercy prevents that which we rightfully deserve.
What do we rightfully deserve? Look at what Paul said in Romans 1…
“For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil- mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;
who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
This word was given to the Jews and citizens of Rome about the sin of homosexuality. Homosexuality was rampant with all sorts of lewdness and revelry (see Romans 13:12-14). It is no wonder that Paul addressed the vile practices of their day. However, today, this sin is all over the world. The HIV/AIDS rate is through the roof. We all know that it’s a pandemic situation. So much so that the CDC is recommending home testing kits because the statistics show a major underreporting of who is infected.
While billions of dollars is being spent on research to find a cure for AIDS, as commendable it is, we still forget God on His throne of grace.
When we commit sin that is worthy of death, where can we go to obtain mercy? We must go to God. Yet, they won’t because the love of sin and darkness obscures the perfect remedy of all sin. The sacrificial offering of Christ’s body for the sins of the whole world. Yet, they will not come.
The fact that Jesus was tempted with SSA (same sex attraction) is a clear indication that Jesus knows what you are going through. It is a clear reminder that He also knows how to deliver and set free those that are bound. It is just a matter of your will to be delivered or to remain in sin. There are many that approached the Deliverer and had to make serious decisions. Those trapped in the sin of homosexuality walked away from their lovers or they told their lovers that they had to leave.
The fierce battle within to give up the lifestyle is probably the most powerful battles one has to face. For any person caught in Secret Sexual Sins, these battles are more fierce than most people think. The body has to shut down the urges and impulses. Go cold turkey. Experience withdrawal from the pressing desires that were once pleasurable to experience and fulfill. The agony of never having an orgasm in sexual immorality in accordance with your terms of fulfilling the lusts of the mind and flesh, is a feat that few followthrough on.
The subtraction and absence of sex at will. The connectedness experienced with others in the same sex world or in any department in the world of sexual immorality, never to be done any more to please the Lord. It’s a daunting task. The discipline to say “no” during the early stages in deliverance weakens but the strength of God comes right on time to help you suppress the will to sin. The escape made possible by the Holy Spirit, you accept time and time again. You realize that you are serious about walking away because the Holy Spirit reminds you of the temptations Jesus went through to overcome falling into the sin of homosexuality.
Yes, the lusts of the mind and flesh were real to Jesus. That’s why you can depend upon Him to lead all the way to complete victory over the sin of homosexuality, or any Secret Sexual Sins.
Hebrews 2:18 says…..
“For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.”
Hebrews 7:25 says…
“Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”
When you look at the word “intercession” some of us think that it is prayer all of the time. No. Not every time. Jesus literally comes to you and stands in your place. That’s how we are able to bear up under the temptation according to 1 Corinthians 10:13. Jesus stands in front of us when we are tempted to make sure that the enemy doesn’t tempt us beyond our ability to resist. That’s why He saves to the uttermost those that come to God through Him.
In those times of temptation, He saves us from falling, provided we walk away when He tells us to. Walk away to a safe place in Him from temptation.
He knows what you are going through. When you need His help. His aid. He will be there for you to help you overcome temptation.
Won’t you trust Him today?
The commercialization of December 25, the man made day of the birth of Christ, distracts from the real reason of the birth of Christ.
We all know that the actual birthday of Jesus is unknown. What we do know is that the birth of Jesus was necessary. Genesis 3:15 was the Lord God’s declaration to forever redeem man from his sins.
Those caught in the sin of sexual immorality know that the birth of Christ is indisputable. However, few will acknowledge the real purpose. The Lord God said, after Adam and Eve deliberately disobeyed the commandment, not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.”
Another paraphrase says….“From now on you and the woman will be enemies, as will your offspring and hers. You will strike his heel, but he will crush your head.”
The phase…“He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel” is a judgment pronounced symbolically on the devil’s head.
But the crucifixion is the place where the devil would bruise Jesus’ heel. The seed and her Seed, is the hostilities that would take place between the spiritually dead and those that would accept Jesus as Lord and become righteous.
The clash of the unrighteous against the righteous is seen everyday with those trapped in the sin of sexual immorality, in particular, with LGBT. When the righteous seek to speak the truth in love, the righteous is called “bigots, intolerant, and discriminating.” The usage of these terms is an attempt to persuade the righteous to back off.
For what lies ahead for sinners in eternity, we choose not to neglect to warn every man.
Yet, they want to use the Christ of love to continue in the very sin He came to set us free from.
Jesus is not just a prophet or great teacher. John the Baptist announce Jesus when Jesus came to be baptized in the river of Jordan. “Behold. The Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.”
Jesus came from heaven to earth to die for your sins.
We do not hate anyone that is caught in sin. The objective of the child of God is to offer the love of Jesus that saved us, to set free the bound and heal broken in heart. To liberate and set the captives free. To bring hope to the hopeless, and power to the powerless. To never spew hatred towards anyone, including those trapped in the sin of homosexuality.
Our purpose is to offer true love and salvation from the power and guilt of sin. To deliver you from the power of satan to the power of God. To help you overcome sin and the shame connected with committing sexual immorality.
Even Jesus despised the shame of being mistreated to free you from the shame of sin.
The Bible also tells us that Jesus was “…tempted in all points like as we, yet He didn’t sin.”
You mean He was tempted to be a homosexual?
If the devil tempted Him in the wilderness for 40 days and if the Bible says that He was tempted in ALL POINTS, then He was tempted, but He didn’t yield to any sin.
LGBT. Just know that we love you. God loves you. We love you enough to tell you the truth in love and to help you to see the Savior and understand the real purpose of the birth of the Savior.
Since sin entered the world and death, women are constantly engaged in hostilities from the devil. From the sex trade, thanks to human trafficking, to acquiring STDs, pregnancies that end in abortion, to a husband’s infidelity, women have experienced many horrible things.
The enmity or hostilities are enormous but through it all, the Lord provided redemption and deliverance through the sacrificial offering of Jesus’ sinless blood. The Father provided His Son because He loved us. The Son was sent to rid the world of sin. The Father demonstrated His love in a way that no man could love a woman, nor could a woman love a man. Sex and all it’s “love” is no match for the true love of the Savior.
Man’s promises of fulfilling love always fall short but God’s love is eternal. God meant His love for you.
If you are looking for the promise of fulfillment and love in sex, you will not find it. Everything that you need is in Jesus.
Love, peace, affirmation, acceptance, value, worth, esteem.
Jesus was given as a gift to man, wrapped in swaddling clothes, but more importantly, wrapped in flesh with sinless blood to purchase men for God.
All of these things the Father gives as a gift to us, courtesy of the birth of Jesus.
Alas, another pastor that love and possibly, worship sex more than loving God and maintaining the sanctity of his call to the ministry.
Like many of us, we ruin ourselves in secret before we are exposed. In a chapter in my book called Secret Sexual Sins, there is a chapter called, “Come Clean. Or Be Exposed!” This is what the Lord said to me before I repented.
There are many pastors that live secret lives. Let me reiterate a statistic. There are over 300,000 churches in the United States. 50% of pastors struggle with porn. That means 150,000 churches have pastors that are living in Secret Sexual Sins.
I was one of those pastors until December, 2008.
My friend, Pastor DL Foster posted about another pastor falling (courtesy of Charisma.com) because of Secret Sexual Sins.
You can read the article by clicking this link.
A few of us pastors agree. It is now a regular occurrence. It’s been 4 years since the Lord delivered me from porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation.
Why do I mention this?
Few articles really get to the nitty gritty of a pastor’s Secret Sexual Sins. Many of you are so stunned when you read of a married pastor, with children, committing adultery, but rarely do we discover the fuel of adultery. Rightfully so, Pastor Foster points out that the root cause is the undisciplined pastor’s heart, also known as the fruit of the Spirit, called “self control,” as the root cause of moral failure.
What goes undetected is the Secret Sexual Sins occurring in the life of a pastor. The discovery of adultery is just the exposure of a deeper problem that rarely is discussed.
Porn and masturbation in the life of a pastor.
The other two things that is not noted is the sexual immoral woman that the book of Proverbs speaks of, and the wife, and kids affected by this momentary laps of judgment.
We are to avoid the sexually immoral women like the plague. Now, not every woman is sexually immoral, but there are predator pastors that take advantage of emotionally unstable women in church.
Then again, there are women that strategically, and deliberately intend to use their femininity to secure the love of a pastor. Not to mention that there are Jezebels on assignment to sexually sacrifice their body for church power.
In Dr. Betty Price’s book “A Warning To Ministers, Their Wives, and Their Mistresses,” she warned of the constant battle in the local church of pastors seeking illicit sex from women in and outside the church. In her book, she pointed out that there are many women that intentionally hunt down pastors. Sitting in the front row to intentionally get the pastor’s attention, sexually, in no uncertain terms, is one of the main ploys of sexually immoral women. In one instance, Dr. Betty Price told of a story of a woman that went right into Dr. Fred Price’s office on pretense of receiving pastoral counseling, and straight up solicited him for sex. Because of Dr. Fred Price’s spiritual discipline, being strong in spirit, he resisted her temptations.
That’s why as a rule for me, I never counsel women, and I never counsel women alone. I’d rather lose them to another church and pastor than to risk any appearance of evil. Suit yourselves but I refuse to counsel women alone. Brothers, you are not that strong and you should never fool yourself.
Dr. Betty Price shared that those that successfully engage a weak willed pastor, were mesmerized by the “anointing” on a pastor’s life and Dr. Betty Price indicates that this is the one thing that attracts women to a pastor. After these women have sex with a single or married pastor that one time, that mesmerization departs.
They are no longer infatuated with that anointed man of God.
But as with all women, connection and then to disconnect, unless you are a harlot, is not that easy. Dr. Betty Price counseled several women, caught in the web of sexual sins to leave that preacher. And they do not. Churches are left with a house of harlots with the pastor as the head pimp.
In the book, “Betrayal Of Trust,” the introduction in the book speaks of a Brooklyn, NY pastor in Brooklyn Heights, in the late 1890’s was accused of adultery. The woman lost her husband and it’s been a she said he said kind of issue. After accusations when flying, and a church meeting, the church sided in with the pastor that nothing went on. They swept the issue under the rug. And this is the long standing policy of churches. That when someone is verifiably caught or if there is a hint of sexual immorality, the issue is swept under the rug. The pastor remains in the pulpit and everything is “hunky-dory.”
Getting back to the book, one of the most outstanding observations is that pastors that are caught in the act of adultery are either predators or wanderers.
A predator is one that sexually hunts for one woman after another. No different than a serial rapist. Then the wanderer is one that strays from his wife for a one night stand. But even as a wanderer, solicitation of multiple prostitutes is part of a wanderer until it enters sexual addiction level three where the criminal element heightens the orgasmic experience. That criminal element involves being a serial rapist to child porn, to child homosexuality.
But few look behind the scene and discover a pastor’s secret life of porn and masturbation.
In the above story by Charisma, it may be possible that Pastor Hunter may not have been involved in porn and masturbation. We do not have the facts regarding this. But we know that in most cases, acting out has a starting point. And it usually is porn and masturbation.
The Lord Jesus reveals Secret Sexual Sins when a man looks at a women to lust after her, that he committed adultery with her in his heart (see Matthew 5:27-28).
In Dr. Patrick Carnes’ cycle of addiction, it all begins with “thoughts or fantasies.” Then it goes to ritual. Then it goes to “acting out.” Then it goes to “remorse.”
I mentioned this because the top of sexual addiction begins with thoughts and fantasies. I will point out that not every one is sexually addicted.
Sexual addiction is the inability to control, manage, or stop yourself from sex or masturbation.
When you cannot stop looking at a woman sexually, it is lust and it is adultery. Job 31:1 says, “I have made covenant with my eyes, why would I look on a handmaiden?”
When a man cannot stop looking lustfully at a woman, this is where the core or root problem is (see James 1:14-15). The lack of discipline in this regard is 100% behind pastoral moral failure. It is indicative of a lack of intimacy in prayer with God. The late Dr. Ed Cole, the father of the modern day men’s movement with the Christian Men’s Network, said, “Prayer produces intimacy with God.”
E. M. Bounds said, “A prayerless pulpit begets a prayerless pew.”
Preachers can act out ministerial at the drop of a hat. You can’t fool your way through prayer.
It’s the same with singing for God, or being a music minister for God, or being a church secretary for a pastor.
He is not the first and he certainly won’t be the last. With immorality overrunning the church where the demonic LGBT agenda is being swallowed whole by sinning pastors, helping to cause the church to renounce the righteousness of God, the more pastors fail the standard, the argument from the world holds a form of truth.
We are hypocrites.
Finally, the wife and kids affected by the adulterous pastor. It is clear that betrayal on this level has brought embarrassment and confusion to his family. The wife in the moment loses her self esteem, dignity, and honor. It will take time to ask God for grace to get through the initial and long term affects of her husband’s foolish act of sexual pleasure.
The wife will experience the devil bringing a lot of questions to her mind. The devil with suggest to her that she is not as beautiful as the secretary or porn stars he’s been watching. The devil will suggest to her that her bedroom inadequacy and unavailability for sex was due to her increased workload was the cause. The devil will bring up past arguments that led to a husband’s cold shoulder.
And more things like God is not going to repair the marriage. That God doesn’t love her. And on and on. But this is the moment where whatever is brought to your mind, is to be refuted by the Word of God. She will need to confide in another woman of God, in a safe environment, that will objectively deal with her in a compassionate manner. The road to her healing is long and difficult. At this stage, it is recommended that difficult decisions be put off and just get through the moment of the infidelity with the grace and love of God.
The kids need to be told the truth, depending upon their ages. They must understand that what their daddy did was sin and that it wan’t in God’s plan. That sexual sin is of the devil. If at all possible, they need to be cared for while the process is ongoing. They must experience some semblance of normalcy as possible. Professional Christian help is available and should be sought as reasonably quick as possible.
It’s not the end and God’s grace can get you through the moments. Wives that experience this horrendous act must never place blame on themselves. They must get through the moment and allow God to work with them where they are.
Church. Let’s do a better job in our sanctification. Let’s get closer to God in prayer and obedience to the Word.
This does not have to be common.
A report by Christiannews.net is revealing holes in Rick Warren’s recent statement concerning homosexuals.
Every time you see him and the others capitulate, it sends shock waves. These men of God, such as TD Jakes, John Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Goerge Bloomer, and others are not as forth coming when it comes to the very basic responses to “soft ball” tossed question about the sin of homosexuality.
In my opinion, the news media always asks the wrong people.
Because they know what they are going to get from these people that claim to be “Christian leaders of the 21st Century.”
Take a look at this article, and then come back….
The Bible is clear about the sin of homosexuality. We all know Leviticus 18:22, Romans 1:18-32, Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:1-4, 1 Corinthians 6:9-20, Ephesians 5:24-33. At least good students of the Word of God should know.
Babes are different.
The world. Forget it. Even when you print it for them, they look at you like God didn’t say it.
But when you hear capitulation statements from prominent men and women of God, people that graduated from some formal renowned school, received honorary doctorates, or they may have earned them, out right, you wonder what in the world were they taught, and who taught them? Or they deliberately and intentionally deviated from what they were taught and have become so full of themselves that they teach variations of the truth.
Mutant Variations of Scriptures!
Sin used to be black and white.
Now there is so much gray that we really do not have any idea what sin is. Usually when I see this, sometimes, and it’s not with every preacher and teacher of the Word, that sin may have crept into their own lives. When leaders bring a mutation (an event that changes the [spiritual] genetic structure) of the Bible, there is tremendous amount of believers waiting to have an excuse to sin. When it comes from these “leaders,” we are seeing Matthew 15:1-9 all over again.
“Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.”
When there is an intentional deviation from the Word of God where the “absolutes” of God’s Word is diluted, it’s no wonder that the church is in the condition that it’s in. The world (Oprah Winfrey) has used their demonic influence to where if Elijah were here on earth, he would cringe. This is the time to show the world who our God is, and we do what Elijah had done before he was taken up in a whirlwind. Run from Jezebel. The sad thing is that we have not even prayed to God. We haven’t allowed God to work a miracle to turn the hearts of God’s people back to Him.
Baal has answered, and he is god (sarcastically).
I’m not trying to insult their intelligence but when you see certain undeniable statistics regarding the pandemic of HIV/AIDS and other STDs in the world and also in the Body of Christ, why isn’t someone sounding the alarm? Why are we doing a “two step” around this issue?
It is crazy to think that when you arrive on the stage of notoriety, fame, fortune, and glitter that I believe they lose it because the measure of influence that they now come into, should they say anything contrary to popular worldly belief, they would lose people, prestige, money, and influential power.
HOW DO YOU LOSE A MEGA CHURCH?
Preach the truth.
James said it clearly….
“Let your YEA be YEA and your NAY be NAY,” lest you fall into judgment.”
If you are uncertain about the sin of homosexuality, get certain about it now before you fall into judgment.
The abandonment for the truth is quickly being thrown aside for fear of the loss of all things gained.
It appears to me that God will let you keep what you’ve built. Just so that when you stand before Him, you will watch it all go through the fire (1 Corinthians 3:12-15), and you will suffer loss.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Most blogs that are written by people will not get read and passed to the right people. Or they do get to them, but it is soundly ignored.
Have we become so full of ourselves that we can no longer recognize the truth of God’s Word about certain undeniable things said by God in His Word? I believe that we have reached this point. That no matter what is true in God’s Word, we can completely ignore it.
A preacher’s high profile status is too important for truth. So important, that we can mutate Scripture so we wouldn’t offend anyone.
I don’t have gay friends. I have ex homosexual friends that moved, as Pastor DL Foster would say, “From Struggle To Strength.”
You cannot be so full of your own wisdom that you keep yourself so insulated from what is happening with other people that effectively ministers the power of God’s Word. There are 7000 that have not bowed their knee to Baal. Of course, people will write to Rick Warren. Others have emailed him already. They say that when something sensational hits the internet, in one second, 2 million persons are aware of it.
In the Navy, we have a saying. “You can always tell how big a battleship is by how fast scuttlebutt gets around.”
No different than water cooler gossip.
But truth gets around fast and people forget it quickly or they intentionally ignore it.
So, let me conclude by saying…..
Rick Warren, I rebuke you and your statements.
It’s time to stand for the truth and unapologetically do so. We must be about the Father’s business.
Some will say, “You’ve gone too far with this.”
Quite frankly, I haven’t gone far enough. If I had the right tools at my disposal, I would do more.
And yes, the Bible is clear about the Word regarding the sin of homosexuality, and all sin for that matter.
Otherwise, the Lord need to raise from the dead everyone of them He destroyed at Sodom and Gomorrah, and apologize to them on international TV.
Now go to GCMWatch for another eye opening blog…
From the Biblical prospective, God created male and female. To become one flesh, they must be married and they are authorized to copulate and have children. Today, we are seeing a continual increase in young males becoming homosexuals and bisexual.
It is no surprise. The media and other instruments serve to demonically assist males to divert from the normal pattern to that which is abnormal.
Here is the results from a salacious website that I will not provide the link to. But the information contained is stunning.
“During a teleconference Tuesday, the CDC delivered fresh statistics showing that young people between the ages of 13 and 24 account for 26 percent of new HIV infections in part because 60 percent of them don’t know they are infected.
“Young gay and bisexual men report much higher levels of risky behavior than their heterosexual peers,” CDC Director Thomas Frieden says. “Gay and bisexual males are much more likely to have multiple sex partners, inject drugs, use alcohol and drugs before sex and more likely to not use condoms.”
The CDC analysis includes data from 2010 and is the latest information on HIV infections, testing and risk behaviors among young people.
Each month, some 1,000 young people are infected with HIV and, in 2010, 72 percent of those new infections occurred in young gay and bisexual men. For young black gay men, the numbers are more stark: They account for 39 percent of all new infections among the 13 to 24 age group.”
It is clear that this pandemic affects African Americans. Couple that with abortion and we can see why our African American population is deceasing. Sadly, the NAACP and other interconnected organizations and supporters will not lift a finger to sound the alarm. It’s difficult for them to do so because African American pastors are not serious about changing. When you are sympathetic to the sin of homosexuality and you erroneously equate the sin of homosexuality with the Civil Rights struggle, it is very easy to overlook the countless caskets, filled with our people who were lied to.
Sadly, and most profoundly, the countless numbers of people that never made Jesus as Lord and Savior that lifted their eyes in hell. For the Bible says that “the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of heaven.”
The other thing that is pathetic is that, according to an article passed to us on FB by Pastor DL Foster of GCMWatch, that after the election, African Americans had the nerve to press president Obama about education and unemployment issues, to have a seat at the table.
I guess we really got our priorities together.
So being that we have our priorities together, we can really look good. Mass murderers resulting from adultery and fornication, and proponents of the sin of homosexuality.
Having this priority together, we are really smart, intelligent, and looking to slap ourselves on the back for having elected and re-elected the first black president to make sure that we continue our gold star, “we shall overcome” movement.
It’s said that more deaths with occur. But when it’s all over, people will, after they die, say….“Man. God was right all along.”
The old guard Civil Rights tactics of accusing true church leaders of homophobia and discrimination has mesmerized and stupefied the majority of the 12% population of African Americans. There is no excuse to continue to watch our young African American boys go down this path of homosexuality and bisexuality. However, it is clear that as far as sin is concerned, the world will do everything possible to keep sin.
In the church, this is a tragedy of epic proportions.
We must continue to sound the alarm. Too often, when the alarm is sounded, people are used to the sound and roll over in bed. But, keep rolling over. When this hits your door step, you will pay attention.
Since the NAACP really doesn’t have any influence and since the African American leadership in the church is in bed, literally, with Secret Sexual Sins, is there any chance for this gaping breach to be closed?
I am reminded that these are the last days.
There are many African American pastors that is preaching and living the Word of God out. Their example of living holy in an unholy world is exemplary, but is it enough?
The one thing that we must never do is give up and give in to the devil. We must fight to the last man and woman.
Young girls are caught in the middle.
It is a serious possibility that single women will end up infected, pregnant, or both. If the trend continues, it’s almost as if we are seeing a stead decline to where the African American family edges closer and closer to non-existence.
For instance, in the 1940’s and 1950’s roughly 47% of families had a mother and father that were married in the home. Today, it is roughly 15%. Families do well when there is a married to one woman male in the home. With the divorce rate at around 50% with the vast majority of divorces having a root cause of porn and masturbation, prostitution, and bisexuality as a significant contributor to divorces, the women are definitely under attack.
In reading the book of Revelation 12, we see that the woman is constantly being attacked. While she was partly to blame for the debacle in the Garden, yet, the Lord still used her (Mary) to birth the Savior of the world through the immaculate conception of Christ. And after the birth of Christ, she is still being attacked.
Now, it seems that she is being intentionally isolated by the depletion of available single males. It is impossible for righteous seed to flood the earth if males increasingly become bisexual or homosexual, or serves himself with porn, prostitutes, fornicate, and commit adultery, and have self sex. Males are sexually out of control and they haven’t figured out that true intimacy comes from being in fellowship with the One that created him.
If there was ever a time for the church to sound the alarm, now is the time.
But the sound of the alarm on a sinking ship is an alarm too late.
Or is it?
The question is not “Where is God?”
The question is “Adam, where are you?”
When God asks a question, it’s never for His benefit. The Lord is omniscient or all knowing. The Father knows all.
Man, you need to get back to God to find where you are. You are in a crisis and the numbers do not lie.
While they are saying that abortion is on the decline by 5%, the hidden statistic is the over the counter abortion pill. If you can eliminate a child by taking a pill, it is not considered an abortion where a doctor surgically murder a child. You murder the child through a “morning after” pill. Heaven still mourns when a morning after pill is used to kill a child.
Where are you, man?
You are supposed to protect and serve the family.
Where are you, man?
Is it true that you really do not care and that you are thinking with your urges and impulses leading the way?
Where are you, man?
This crisis could end with you. This pandemic of death, this cycle of destruction can stop.
It is very easy to preach what Paul said to women, “Women, if you are burning, for the sake of sexual immorality, find a husband.”
But where can you find them if they are not in church, but out there in the world? Where can you find them when they are trafficking among males in homosexual bars, and such? Where can an available single woman find an available, clean single male. A virgin?
Women are crying out to the Lord for some semblance of normalcy and cannot find any because a male is incapable of living with his pants zipped up.
Pray, saints. Pray God’s power to rise in the churches to stop promiscuity among our children. Pray God’s power to fill the hearts and minds of men before they see the ill gotten pleasures of lust, that takes them to places that they thought they would never go. Pray that God have mercy before a man loses his virginity and becomes sexually experienced with the destructive forces of Secret Sexual Sins.

An Open Rebuke And Admonition To President Barack Obama,
This is my written attempt to get over to you that those of us who worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, are appalled at this.
When it comes to politics, we know that compromise is the rule but when it comes to prayer, we, who serve the Lord Jesus Christ, cannot, and we will not compromise.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I rebuke you Mr. President.
For a little background, please click this link and then return to this blog.
The election is over and we know that you are the president of the United States for four more years. The office of the presidency carries world wide prestige and responsibility. Already, you have made it clear that you would lead all of the American people. At least, that’s what you have said.
So far, we of the Christian faith have been left to the sidelines with your acceptance and endorsement of the LGBT community, same sex marriage, and Planned Abortionhood.
Sadly, evangelicals are so confused that there is no real consensus of faith and we are in disarray. So much so that our leaders are dumping the Word of God for political gain. But the remnant of the Christian faith hold fast to the Word of God, and we will never deny the Lord.
Otherwise, the Lord Jesus will deny us before the Father.
Mr. President, as long as you twist the Word for your own purposes, we of the truth will stand ready, willing, and able to point out to you and anyone else that desire to abuse and manipulate the Scriptures, the truth of the Word.
And I am not careful to not rebuke you, Mr. President.
Proverbs 27:5 says, “Open rebuke is better than love that is hidden.”
To seek the help of the prayers of the other gods in addition to seeking the prayers of the saints that serve the Most High God, is blasphemous.
For too long, many of those that profess to follow Jesus, have chosen to remain silent. But history has showed that the Word of the Lord must be issued to all who dare proceed on a path to worship, pray, and serve other gods. Especially those that profess to be followers of Jesus.
To be ashamed of the Lord Jesus Christ can be overcome. It takes courage to stay from places that openly goes against the only Lord of heaven and earth. There aren’t many ways to God. For the Bible is clear that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to the Father but by Jesus. That neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved (see John 14:6 and Acts 4:12).
This act, captured on film, provokes the Most High God.
Biblical history has showed that those that refuse to seek the Lord alone, never get out of the situation they are in.
When king Asa decided to use the Syrians to block Israel, the Lord sent word to the prophet to speak to king Asa…
“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong in the behalf of those who’s heart is loyal toward Him.”
The Word is clear in the NT that we are to pray to the Father, in the name of Jesus. He is the true and living God, and you know it.
The world knows that Jesus is Lord, and you know it. Or perhaps, you do not know it and you might be able to claim ignorance. But your competence and intelligence reveals that you are knowledgable.
You and this country is facing a very serious situation and only the God of heaven can help. It is remarkably stunning that you run the risk of seeking the gods that have no power to save the United States from the financial brink and to solicit their prayers. It is clear that this continuation of looking the other way by you, Mr. President, is a consistent pattern that further indicates that the God of heaven and earth is not the God you claim to be serving.
We who stand as children of the Most High God, will never compromise the Word of God. We will never deny the Lord Jesus Christ. We know that politics is a very dangerous game. So dangerous, that if this is the only available resort for the people of the United States, that government is god, that eventually, this god must be destroyed.
To provoke the God of heaven and earth is even a more dangerous thing.
Therefore, Mr. President, we will continue to hold you up in prayer according to 1 Timothy 2:1-2. We will continue to seek the true God of heaven and earth on your behalf, to turn your heart to be saved and to serve Him fully. To love The Lord, your God, with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.
We who seek the Lord, the Most High God, will forever stand for the truth, no matter the cost.
Thank you for your time, Mr. President.
