Democrats Getting Religion In Time For The 2020 Election

image.png

Some of you will remember that in the Democratic Convention of 2016, people booed God.

They don’t want God to be Lord of the nation.

It should be no surprise that both parties cater to the Christian vote, however, as a believer, many believe in the principle of selecting the lessor of two evils.

Selecting the lessor of two evils is still a choice for evil.

Just because it’s less evil, it doesn’t mean that it’s a safe choice.

Evil is evil.

There’s no question about what party supports what.

With the Republican Party, it’s generally pro life, with many believing in inclusion of homosexuals. These are also called moderate/liberal Republicans. Btw, pro life positions tolerate abortion due to incest and rape.

Abortion is just as evil and wrong as rape and incest.

So, in my opinion, pro life positions is a compromise position to appease certain moderate/liberal conservatives willing to vote and support Republicans.

When you’re supportive of positions clearly defined as an abomination by God, you have a major problem on your hands.

James 4:4 is very clear.

During the 2008 election, many Black people that profess going to church, roughly 95% of the 13% that make up the African American population, voted for Obama.

But of that 95%, 43% professed faith in Jesus.

This indicated to me that they were more than willing to put their Bible aside to vote a Black man into the WH. Essentially walking away from what the Lord said in His word about abortion and homosexuality.

In some of Obama’s stump speeches as a candidate for president, I liked that he was running and I said he looked very presidential. UNTIL he mentioned abortion rights, & support for LGBT. And he gave a speech at Planned Parenthood, declaring that Planned Parenthood, under his presidency was going no where.

When a moral position is politicized, as a believer, you must never surrender or capitulate your “…deeply held religious beliefs.”

To do so is to give anyone a license to control everything you do.

Believers in Christ must remain vigilant and not be moved by political or preacher personalities, that you lose Biblical sense and give in to the cultural winds that blow today.

If you don’t stand for Biblical principles, you’ll fall for demonic lies and deceptions.

The Democratic Party is clear on what they want to do.

Continue the systematic eugenic policy of killing precious babies, and Joe Biden already said that he would make LGBT concerns his number 1 priority.

Never mind that Iran and North Korea is seeking nukes, China is seeking global reach capabilities and dominance, Russia is looking for Middle East and European dominance. The Palestinians, will millions of US tax dollars, look for the destruction of Israel, and establish control of Jerusalem as their capital.

For Democrats, boarder insecurity, killing babies, and LGBT priorities is far more important.

During the Obama administration, they gave away US leadership and world stability, thinking that if you allow them to do what they want, they would be good neighbors.

That’s a very foolish position.

Retreating into an isolationist position as a nation, unwilling to engage world powers to check it, led to two world wars.

Millions were killed as a result.

We face the same today.

We must engage and check world dominance or we will lose our nation.

And let’s not forget that for the Democratic Party, to control people, free thinking people must be disarmed and it’s imperative to take away from free thinking people free speech.

So, they use the cover of being a party that loves God by recruiting inclusive false preachers to deceive many into thinking that the Democratic Party is safe.

Just look at the Obama administration and the direction this nation was headed, and it will give you a good indication that should believers become oblivious to clear anti God policies, more is on the way.

Obama’s administration was a taste of the final chapter of America.

So if you want to kiss this country goodbye, the next president, should they be a Democrat, is a clear indication to us that many of the rights we enjoy as a Republic, might not ever return.

But I also look at it like this.

The kingdom of the Lord Jesus must come.

For this to happen, this nation must end.

How will it end?

Socialism.

It’s when America is no longer America and the US Constitution ceases to exist.

Guns are confiscated.

Government controls everyone.

Churches go underground.

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”

The opposite is true too.

Cursed is the nation that doesn’t have God as the Lord.

I’m Not Going To Hell Over Porn & Masturbation And Kirk Franklin

Unknown-11.jpeg

Kirk and Kanye will be doing a perverted “gospel” album.

When darkness has a hold on you, the effects are devastating. Looking at the face of Kirk, this Scripture comes to mind.

Proverbs 13:15b, “…the way of the transgressor is hard.”

Like I said, remember when Kirk talked to Oprah about his porn addiction?
 
Well, this is what’s behind all this stuff that he is doing now.
 
That is, porn and masturbation.
 
You can’t do one without the other.
However, just like the Word of God is a seed (see Luke 8:11), the word of satan acts in the same way.
Porn is deposited into the soul and its effects lasts until your last dying breath. It’s a constant battle to renounce, break, bind, cast down, throw down, block, and incarcerate every “objectivity of sexual positions” thoughts to the obedience of Christ.
Even if you stop watching porn, it’s in your soul until the mind is renewed by the Word of God. If it is in your mind and then the mind is renewed, 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 must be employed for the rest of your life.
 
Then with masturbation, you must dethrone and un-employ “muscle memory.” “Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.” As Jesus said, “If your right hand offend you, cut it off….if your right eye offend you, cut it off.”
According to Romans 6:12-23, you submit your members to righteousness leading unto holiness.
 
What are you willing to do to stop? Are you willing to shed blood to stop sin in your life?
Read Hebrews 12:4 “You have not resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.”
 
It’s called radical amputation.
 
What are you willing to do and how far are you willing to go to avoid going to hell?
Now do not get a knife. This is a metaphor. The power of radical amputation demands an extreme action to prevent yourself from sinning against God. I am not advocating suicide or making yourself physically. I am advocating implying extreme measures to keep yourself holy before God (see Matthew 16:24 and Colossians 3:5).
 

I was attacked a couple of days ago. As I was looking at the News on my iPhone and a porn site popped up twice. I was prepared to always look away and I immediately deleted the site. satan is not going to get me ever again to click a site to intentionally watch porn.

While there are many ways to head this attack off, I know that the Lord is strong and mighty in my life and that like Paul, “...nothing shall separate me from the love of God in Christ Jesus” (see Romans 8:31-39).

First, I love the Lord for delivering me and setting me free.
Second, I prove my love for Him by obeying His commands according to John 14:15 and 1 John 5:3.
Third, sexual immoral people will not inherit the kingdom of God and are cast into the lake which burns with fire and brimstone according to 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 and Revelation 21:8.
I am not going to burn in hell forever for one moment of pleasure.
To keep myself according to Psalm 119:9-11, Proverbs 4:23, 1 John 5:18 and I need the Holy Spirit to show me the way of escape according to 1 Corinthians 10:13. I need to count it all joy when I fall into many temptations according to James 1:2-4.
 
You cannot resist until you full submit to God.
 
Anyway, this is what’s driving Kirk to say and do what he is doing.

When you see the video, you will see no quoting of Scriptures by Kirk to support any of his statements. When you depart from God, the first thing that goes is the Word of God.

The Word in Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision the people perish.”

Another translation called the (NLT) says,  “When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild. But whoever obeys the law is joyful.”
Kirk’s rant about homosexuality and apologizing for what the church has said against homosexuality is a classic attempt to blame God about what they are going through. It appears that the authority of the Scriptures is shunned and discarded as a trivial Book.
Kirk has replaced the authority of the Scriptures with his own authority.
When you cast off the restraint of God’s Word, it’s because “Do as thou wilt” is the law of sin and death is in operation.
There is only one reason why Kirk is advocating for homosexuals.

You are either involved in the sin of homosexuality, or you are still in porn and masturbation, or both. It’s debatable, but one pastor told me that masturbation is the door to homosexuality.

Here is the reason.

Masturbation is you sexually doing you.
Also, when homosexuals engage in any sex act, masturbation or masturbating your other male partner is definitely homosexual activity. And homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God.
This became another incentive for me to cease and desist.
Now the Word acts as a restraint to keep one from perishing when acted upon in total obedience.
Kirk has cast off restrain according to Psalm 2 and if he doesn’t turn around, he will be numbered with the transgressors.

LGBT: Deliberately Hijacking Civil Rights

On August 28,1963, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King made one of the most profound speeches in history.

The “I Have A Dream” speech.

History will reveal that Dr. King preached this message before August 28, 1963.

The last time he would preach this message, it would be the one that would ring on every mountain side.

Five years later, Dr. King would talk about “I’ve been to the mountain top.”

Sadly, he was assassinated the day after his prophetic declaration.

Little did he realize that further down the road off the mountain top, LGBT would later hijack the Civil Rights message.

I was four months shy of my 2nd birthday at the time Dr. King made that remarkable speech, but thank God that it was recorded.

Looking back at these historical words, we see the dream unfold.

“And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and ever city, we will be able speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestant and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

Pathetically, LGBT had a dream too.

Please note that no where do we see “sexual orientation” in Dr. King’s speech.

The deliberate hijacking of August 28, 1963 is a further blatant attempt by LGBT to suppress the true meaning of Civil Rights. It also underscores the deliberate grand larceny of a day that has more to do about race than the sin of homosexuality.

No where in this speech do we see anything that has to do with the sin of homosexuality. It further underscores the desperation on the part of LGBT to legitimize the sin of homosexuality.

It is amazing that LGBT, without hesitation, twisted and convoluted the true meaning of Civil Rights. It’s as if they believe that they have a right to rewrite history. So much so that these words and the life of MLK now mean that to speak against the sin of homosexuality is on par with racism, discrimination, and bigotry.

A dangerous precedent has emerged.

The criminalization of righteousness and the decriminalization of sexual sins.

Isaiah 5:20 says,

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter
!

What crime, you ask?

The crime against God’s righteous and holy standard.

Sadly, the current African American generation, also known as the descendants of slaves, never seen it coming. Instead of seeing sin for what it is, hook, line, and sinker, they’ve accepted the bait, the hook is firmly in the mouth of the fish, and the majority of Black people are in the frying pan of HIV/AIDS. You do not have to have the disease in your body to be destroyed. All you need to do is agree with the sin of homosexuality and it is no different until you get healed by the redeeming power of Jesus.

Not to mention the obvious fact that the systematic destruction of the African American child in the womb called abortion by the hands of Planned Abortionhood, makes this two pronged death attack a clear and present danger to all African Americans.

So far, the NAACP, and other former Civil Rights organizations (you’ve read it right FORMER), is complicit and culpable in handing our unborn generation and current generation a bunch of lies to systematically and deliberately kill us off.

The truth is too much for many to bear.

President Obama can’t handle the truth. Because if he could handle the truth, he would make his eight years in office, the most productive years of his presidency to right the wrongs that currently decimate our communities.

At the root of all lies is the devil himself. After fighting to gain any kind of rights to live free, these rights are now perverted and without question, we remain the targets of demonic destruction until we are made new in Christ.

That’s why the world doesn’t mind if we prosper, have fun in church, jump shout and scream and call it the Holy Ghost. All the while, we are listening to destructive Hip Hop music, clubbing, watching porn and masturbating. We are bringing our out of control behaviors into the house of the Lord and the pastors are joining in the party, if not leading it.

We have forsaken the Lord and the Lord, being true to His Word, has departed some of these houses. We have allowed Oprah Winfrey’s Life Class to indoctrinate us and sadly, no one is taking a stand against it. It is clear that we cannot trust most of our African American TV preachers because we have yet to see them address these atrocities and bring to bear the Word of God on their own lives.

The money that they are bringing in transcends preaching and living the Word of God the way that the Head of the Church intended.

Then there is the small local church that never grows to the size of a mega church that have pastors that live and preach any kind of way. The people live the way they want to live and the Lord is not pleased.

Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;

But happy is he who keeps the law.”

The Amplified Bible says,

“Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man] —blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he.”

Notice in parenthesis “no redemptive revelation of God.”

When there is a deliberate exodus of the redemption of God, you are literally blind. You can’t see your way out of things, much less see what is coming.

When you are involved in sin, you can’t see because of the darkness in your heart. Therefore, this darkness that abides in us makes us incompetent and disqualified to speak the Word of life into our communities.

Now look back up at the latter end of Dr. King’s speech. Notice that sexual orientation is no where listed. From top to bottom, it is about the blatant racism that exists in a society that claims to be the land of the free and the home of the brave. In a society that looks at all men as equal.

Since when sexuality is a race? Since when sexuality is an orientation? If anything, the sin of homosexuality is just a bedroom sexual sin that somehow ascended to race or a class of people. Sadly, some black folk are not as smart and took the lie of the devil without questioning it. No different than Eve being deceived.

Are we that ignorant? Sure enough. So ignorant that if Bible believing, God fearing African Americans speak up against this hijacking, we are given a history lesson by proponents of LGBT and they are not qualified to give any lessons on Civil Rights.

Americans are free to do whatever they want to do. But when you want to raise a sexuality to the level of Civil Rights, it is just another means of perverting the original intent of Civil Rights to begin with.

So what we see here is another means of oppressing Black people. First, steal Civil Rights and then, hijack the drum major of justice. Let me add something that is of tremendous importance.

There is no question that Dr. King used some of Gandi’s material on non violence, however, some of Gandi’s propaganda goes cross wise with the Word of God.

Moses didn’t need the magicians of Egypt. As you well know, Moses was taught all the stuff about the Egyptians, including their magic but the Lord liberated Israel with ten plagues that countered everything that the Egyptian magicians had.

God needed no help from Gandi to speak into the heart and conscience of the American political system.

Paul said to Timothy…”Preach the Word!…”

All you need to do is preach the Word.

We are not looking for another Martin Luther King. We are looking for preachers of the gospel to assume the watch, stand on their post, and preach the Word. We need preachers everywhere to stand and live the Word in the face of compromise.

Your preacher friends will not like what you are doing.

In fact, they will ridicule you.

They will “preach” to you that you need not go against the establishment. They will warn you that they will walk away from you. They will remind you of the side your bread is buttered. In other words, they will no longer invite you to preach in their churches. They will stonewall you, blackball you, disenfranchise you, disassociate you, and ostracize you.

Sometimes, the rough side of the mountain is your only way. Most definitely, you have to make a break from the crooked plains of compromised preachers. If you are not outraged at anyone that stoop so low as to hijack the Civil Rights movement, you are still bound as a slave.

A slave to sin and a slave to LGBT and Planned Abortionhood.

On August 28, 2013, when people are uninvited because of their stand against the sin of homosexuality like Pastor Donnie McClurkin, it should have been a wake up call for African Americans that even our own people that are free of the sin of homosexuality would be discriminated against because of his declaration of freedom of the sin of homosexuality.

For freedom from sin is true freedom.

The fear of LGBT Is that others would make for the exits of the sin of homosexuality.

“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free ’?”

Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

If you really want to know the truth, you do not go to the lies that have held you bound. You go to the ones that were freed. You do not have to commit sin and remain in bondage. This is what this is about.

A white man once said that black preachers are some of the most powerful preachers on the earth. Yet, we see no power because black preachers are bound as a slave of sin. We see black preachers permitting sin in their lives with no fear of God before their eyes. We see black preachers still sitting outside in the outhouse instead of taking their rightful place in Christ in the house.

Until we exchange places. From the outhouse to the house of God in righteousness, the slavery mentality will remain. All according to the devil’s plan.

I too have a dream.

That one day black folk will wake up.

That we would no longer accept the lies of the world spewed out by LGBT. That we would see that the plan of the enemy is to destroy us, one by one. But his plan cannot work because of Jesus.

I too have a dream. That we would no longer allow sin to shape our communities.

For it is only by the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus that every enslaving yoke of bondage is broken.

His blood is enough to break every chain.

By the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ, this dream can be fulfilled when a person comes into a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is only by the blood of the sinless Lamb that we can be free at last!

EX-GAYS: The Un-Invite of Pastor Donnie McClurkin…….Again

There is a serious full court press to suppress the testimony of ex-homosexuals. It doesn’t matter if you are high profile or a person that remain to themselves. If you are an ex homosexual, you are a clear and present danger to the agenda of LGBT.

If you weren’t a threat or a clear and present danger, they wouldn’t say anything.

Pastor DL Foster of Witness Freedom Ministries called this “The ugly face of gay hate.”

Elder Raymond King of Securing Hope Ministry said…”Those who have been delivered from same-gender attraction are the Achilles-heel of the homosexual rights platform that’s based on this lie that once GLBT, always GLBT.”

My colleagues are saying “Tolerate our homosexuality, but we hate and refuse to tolerate your deliverance” and “Once a slave to the sin of homosexuality, always a slave to the sin of homosexuality.”

Pastor Donnie McClurkin, who pastors Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, NY, not New Jersey, as the Christian Post put out in error, was abruptly uninvited to attend and share in song at the Washington DC event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington DC.

Their blog wrote a comprehensive scenario that underscores a growing trend of the LGBT community laying claims on the late Civil Rights Leader, the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

For the last few years, we have seen a dangerous trend of pursuing the legitimacy of the sin of homosexuals by any means necessary. From establishing their own false Christian denomination and network of LGBT churches, to legislative efforts, the LGBT agenda drivers know that the sin of homosexuality cannot stand alone to be legit.

The pursuit of legitimacy is like “Hamburger Helper.”

Sin is never legitimate in the eyes of God, His Holy Word, and His righteous saints.

We all know the devastating affects the sin of homosexuality has on the divine design of family according to Genesis 2:24.

Just like you cannot have chicken and eggs without a male and female chicken, the human race comes to an abrupt stop should perversion continue on a deliberate perilous course.

For Pastor McClurkin to be rejected once again because of the delivering power of Jesus Christ, underscores the blatant and deliberate attempt to silence those that were truly delivered.

Since challenging a person’s consistent testimony is futile, preventing them from appearing at live events is a desperate resort on the part of LGBT.

It is an outrage. However, we understand further that this strategy is no strange thing.

This is the outer fringes of a storm to attack anyone that, not only share the truth about the love of Jesus, but truly walks in the delivering power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. If your testimony is questionable, they would have put that up as part of the story.

But ex-homosexuals have a testimony that is undeniable, and LGBT knows it. Those that were delivered by Jesus is valid, verified, and consistent. There is no holes in their walk in the power of God. This holy display is dangerous to the agenda of LGBT because we know that within the ranks of LGBT, there’s a lot of people that is looking for someone to stand before them and share with boldness the delivering, gracious, forgiving power of the Holy Spirit.

There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain.

There are people that want to break free but they only need one person to stand and tell them that they could be free in Jesus. This abrupt un-invite is a regular thing with Pastor McClurkin.

Since his testimony of homosexuality and his personal divulging of a son born out of wedlock, God has taken his life and ministry into the place where God’s grace can work in people. There is more credibility and integrity that brings fear to demonic power.

A man of God once said….”A holy man is an awesome weapon in the hands of a holy God.”

This is the thing that LGBT fears. When a man or woman of God Come Clean, and begins to walk in such a way that is blameless, God will use them to reach others. God will put him or her in places where they are not supposed to be and be a blessing to the nations.

That not only is deliverance from sexual sins is possible, deliverance from anything that a person is in is possible.

For Jesus said,

“For with man it is impossible, but with God, all things ARE POSSIBLE.”

If you stay with man, it will never get done, but if you get to God, it will get done. It is possible to be delivered, just get to God.

We do not wish ill will to those bound in the lies and deceptions of LGBT. We still offer the delivering power of the Lord Jesus Christ to break every chain, dispel every lie, and dismantle every weapon formed against God’s people.

Regardless of any other un-invites, the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ will prevail mightily, in Jesus’ name and there is nothing that the god of this world, the prince of darkness, the spirit that now work in the children of disobedience, the father of all sinners can do to stop the delivering power of God.

Un-invite’s weapon shall not prosper.

MEGAFEST: Open Letter To Charisma Magazine

I am concerned that Charisma Magazine is advertising MegaFest with TD Jakes and Oprah Winfrey’s demonically inspired “Life Class.”

I trust that you will not write this off and ignore the fact Oprah intentionally denounces Jesus, and supports the sin of homosexuality as well as porn.

Should a watered down response from Charisma come, I am prepared to take this to the next level that will sound the alarm that Charisma is in bed with false doctrine.

This is not a threat because the Lord and the integrity of the Christian faith is at stake. Any compromise openly underscores the apostasy that is evident in the world today in the Christian faith.

On her website, she has a pornography page regarding the use of porn by women.

As a Christian charismatic magazine, to advertise things that the Bible is clearly against, opens the door for many people that are caught in the whirlwind of porn to continue in sin.

Over 50% of pastors are involved in the sin of porn and self gratification. That means 50% of the over 300,000 churches in America have pastors that intentionally watch porn.

I strongly urge you to remove the ad.

To be a friend of the world means to be an enemy of God. James 4:4.

Yours in Christ

LGBT: TD Jakes MegaFest…..A MegaMess!!!!

When you talk about other ministers and their ministries, I find it very uncomfortable to do so because other ministers should never talk disparagingly about other ministers. However, in light of the truth, it is not about being malicious and it is not about jealousy of another “successful” preacher.

This video by EXMinistries with G. Craige Lewis and Tetuan Moffett is perhaps, the most detailed and painful pieces of exposing such ministers and their ministries that I have ever witnessed.

The facts and the truth is undeniable and if you were ever wondering whether or not to trust TD Jakes, Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Rick Warren, and any other compromised ministers, wonder no more.

After today, if you are still a “touch not mine anointed and do my prophets no harm” kind of believer, at the very end of this video, listen to G. Craige Lewis’ statement. Below is a link to this powerful show.

Many will say that this is extreme but when God demands no other gods to be before Him, and that we are to enter in by the straight and narrow, and that Jesus is the only way, when preachers depart this absolute…..

2 Corinthians 6:17 says, “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord.”

For a long time, I’ve been wrestling with this. I wrestle no more. If you are going to two step around this, I will disassociate you faster than the top of your eyelid hits the bottom. I will walk away from you quickly. I will not have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness and neither will I fellowship with co-conspirators of perversion.

At Megafest, Oprah Winfrey, the demonically inspired high priestess will be there. There is no question in my mind that many people will go there unsuspecting of her witchcraft and they will be filled with perversion. Many “so called” gospel artists will be there as well as worldly hip hop artists. But the killer behind this is what will take place behind the scenes. If the gospel artists and hip hop artists are going to be there, know for sure that drugs, sexual immorality, perversion, alcohol, prostitution, and homosexual hook ups will take place there.

In the hotel rooms, porn and masturbation thirsty pastors will be there. Many people will be under the spell of sexual immorality. If we could see the porn purchases for this Megafest and if we could find out how many pastors and believers will delve into it, it would make your head swim.

Some will say, that this is just non sense. This isn’t going to happen. Think again.

Four years ago, I said that I no longer put it past professed believers. No more benefit of the doubt. Professed believers are capable of any thing and every thing, at any time. We can worship like we’ve been in the presence of the Lord all our lives and snort cocaine. We can have hands raised to God and use these same hands to play with ourselves and masturbate.

That’s right. No holds barred. God is not pleased with this and just because you act holy on Sunday doesn’t mean you will be holy on Monday.

God never blessed this and like the prophet said to Asa, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly…..”

When TD Jakes brought in Oprah Winfrey to teach her demonically inspired “Life Class,” you are opening the door to seducing spirits and doctrine of devils.

The topic of discussion at the Life Class will be “Fatherlessness.” As commendable a topic as this is, sometimes you have to look behind the scenes to understand what else is at stake. When you are looking and listening to things without the Word of God, you need someone that “preaches.” What better person to bring or have on the stage than TD Jakes. This is called endorsement. You could either say something or say nothing. Your presence is an endorsement.

Oprah didn’t invite TD Jakes, Jakes invited Oprah however, we know who was running the show.

In a nut shell, how do you solve the problem with “fatherlessness?”

The Bible says, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

What does being born again have to do with this?

A lot. A person’s nature must change. The gospel is the power of God unto salvation. Fornicators and adulterers is responsible for a majority of children being fatherless. However, people will not come to the Savior. They will not come to the place where a person’s nature could be changed.

Correct me if I am wrong, but during the show, did we hear anything about a person’s nature being changed by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ? You see, when you do anything without God, everything is destined to fail. There may be some resolution, do not misunderstand me, but it is with man’s own graceless efforts. Man always want to do things without God. This is because man wants to make the rules and completely exclude the rule of God. This way, sin could be committed.

As long as we are on this planet and as long as fornication and adultery is still being committed, you will have more fatherlessness or worse. A child killed in the womb.

When you depend upon Oprah Winfrey to mesmerize the people away from God, as the prophet finished his sentence……“therefore from now on you shall have wars.”

The places where you thought you can climb out of will surround you. The people that were against you shall now prevail against you. The battles that you thought you’d win, and the victories you counted on will escape from you. The enemy was on the ropes but God will allow them to prevail against you. The defenses you thought were secure are now done away with. Your praise of God has turned into worship of idols. Your worship of God is now a worship of perversion.

Your connections to any hint of these people will drive you mad. Your evil pursuits are now your exposed agenda. Everything right about you in the past will mean nothing for the wrong your are now in.

Look at this video and judge for yourself.

IF you can easily push aside the fact that TD Jakes and all of them connected to false doctrine is still in the kingdom and preaching for God, I say to you that you have lost your ever living mind and you need to get saved. For the moment you exalt a man above God to protect any thing that God is against, you are an antichrist.

Look at this video.

LGBT/ABORTION: Prayer Against Sexual Immorality & The War Against Intercessors

Paul said, “Pray for us…”

There is a war against prayer that is intense. When there is a concerted effort to stop prayer, it is an indication that the devil is feeling the pressure in the heavenlies. When the IRS questioned conservative groups to see what they are praying, it is clear that the devil is attempting to stop prayer. Intimidation is being used to bring fear to the saints. When the child of God begin to take arms in the place of prayer, you are going to see a concerted effort of demonic forces come against the church to stop prayer.

Just as when Nero had all the Christians executed by way of the lions and other methods. If the Christians weren’t doing their job, they would have left them alone, but when you are having an affect, the devil will do everything necessary to stop you from affecting his works of darkness.

When Secretary of the Navy, Ray Mabus announced that all pornography is to be removed from ships, shore installations, and all Navy Exchanges, this is a significant blow to the forces of darkness.

This underscores a tremendous victory to rid humans of some of the vilest forms of perversion known to man.

The late Ted Bundy, executed in January of 1989 was interviewed by Dr. James Dobson, Bundy admitted that porn was not the source of violent sexual assault. It was the fuel.

Prayer is what disrupted the ongoing problem of sexual assault in the Navy. Prayer is what will disrupt the ongoing problem of sexual perversion in the United States. If the saints would continue to pray, we will see victories like this everywhere.

For with God, all things are possible.
LGBT doesn’t mind fussing and arguing with people so long as it distracts them from praying. We are not only to converse with the people in the world, but we must also pray.

It doesn’t mean that we walk away from one to do the other. We balance it all out as we are led by the Holy Spirit. We converse with the world and we pray.

The devil is a murderer and he cares not for those that love the Lord. The devil will not shed a tear when an intercessor has fallen.

When the Lord comes in vengeance to avenge all that the devil and his angels have done, and when the saints come with Him in glory, shed not a tear nor pity the devil and his angels.

Spare not the sword on the day of vengeance. Hold nothing back. Leave nothing on the table. For all who are enemies of our God will feel His wrath. The unrighteous that side in with the devil will feel His wrath too. For sin is rebellion against the holy God of heaven and earth.

Prayer is the weapon that the devil has no defense for. The God of prayer hears the prayers of His anointed ones. What if our prayers prayed on earth weren’t answered? What happens when prayer is not answered? They are returned to the earth as judgment (see Revelation 5:3 and 8:3-4).
There is another effort in the heavenlies.

To kill off the intercessors.

To stop them by any means necessary. It is there that we are seeing people that wage war are struck with debilitating diseases. To kill off anyone that dare seek the face of God that stand on the behalf of those who need the power of God.

Even intercessors need intercessors.

They are called to go into the dark places of the realm of the spirit with the Holy Spirit to wrestle with the forces of darkness for the souls of men and women.

The intercessor needs intercessors.
The combat is fierce in places where there is to be a difference made. That’s why the abortion industry is the place of considerable warfare. That’s why the LGBT agenda is as fierce as it is.

Because behind the scenes the war is intensifying. The saints that have fallen in battle are being replenished and if the battle is won or lost, it’s because we take up the battle or others fail to take up the battle.

In most places called churches, where there is ineffective praying, there is defeat. The power of a child of God in prayer is the devil’s worst nightmare. Ineffective praying is a result of not hearing from the Spirit of God to pray.

That’s why there is a battle in the airwaves. The media has a stronghold in the minds of men to pervert their thinking. Even the child of God is caught in the warfare unknowingly. It is a major distraction to the child of God that fails to see that the enemy is doing everything necessary to stop you from hooking up with the Holy Spirit to pray.

Some fail to realize that prayer is just putting a petition before God that is already answered, but God needs an intercessor. One who will seek the face of God to get the job done. Should an intercessor fall, will another take up the slack? Will another wage war in the heavenlies?
Where there is no prayer, the devil has peace. The devil’s that are assigned to stop prayer have no rest when the God of heaven sends the angels to assist in the opening up of the heaven lies where the God of heaven dictates His will and His way.
Isaiah said…”I will do all My pleasure.”
However, the Lord needs an intercessor to pray His will in the earth. All answers to prayer are prepared because God births an intercessor to pray specifically what God wants in the earth.

These intercessors hold on to the horns of the altar because they see what God sees. The hear it by the Holy Spirit and begin to take hold of prayer. The Holy Spirit takes hold together against the forces of darkness and pulls them from their assignment.

The assignment of demons and men that are connected by nature to demons is to stop the will of God at any cost.
Prayer is the ultimate battle that requires perseverance, patience, and above all, tenacity to see it through.
Quit praying, and the battle may be lost.
Moses was able to stand and hold his hands up because Aaron and Hur held up the arms of Moses. Israel prevailed because someone stood with the leader to hold him up in prayer. That’s what interceding is all about. HELP.

Moses needed help and they came to his aid to hold up his arms until the will of God was completed.

Saints, we are on the verge of seeing tremendous victories as a result from prayer and there is nothing that the devil can do about it.
In the schools, teachers that were allowed to pray is what kept some of the things that are happening today from taking place. That’s because the God of prayer heard their cry.

Morality is lost because there are very few teachers that would defy the law to pray. God was removed from the schools when they banished teachers from leading prayer. I believe that prayer is on the verge of returning.

Prayer is what keeps the saints involved in the activities of the realm of the spirit to wrestle with the dark forces that come against the church.

The denominations must return to the place of prayer to force darkness out. Pastors must be men and women of prayer to seek the face of God to intercede on behalf of those that need the power of God’s intervention.

Prayer is needed to intervene for those that can’t intervene for themselves. The God of prayer is looking for people willing to stand in the gap and see the hand of God move on earth like never before.

Bull Elephants: The Missing Link- Male Leadership In The Home

Brother Lonnie Poindexter, host American Family Radio with Star Parker, had asked Pastor DL Foster and I to share on the EX GAYS AFFIRMING CHURCH. If you are ever in the Washington D.C. area, you can listen to American Family Radio, http://urbanfamilytalk.com/ WDFX 98.3, Urban Family Communications.

I greatly appreciate the opportunity to share on American Family Radio.

Pastor DL Foster was on the show 06/10/2013 as well and there is no doubt that it was a good segment as we shared about EX GAY AFFIRMING CHURCHES.

Again, if you are interested, go to the Overcomer’s Network and be a part of this groundbreaking movement.

I appreciate Brother Lonnie who passionately shares his concerns about the African American family and it’s plight. Not only does he share these issues, but he is also a part of the solution to the issues that face us.

As Brother Lonnie shared we are coming together, with other pastors throughout the country, and that the Lord is bringing together a coalition of Bull Elephants” to bring order into the communities. I might add, not as despots, but as true male shepherds and leaders to help people become who they need to become in God. We must return to the origin or the beginning. The book of Genesis means “beginnings” but it also means “origin” or “original.” 

God has a specific original pattern for family and when we return to the origin of things, you will find that God was right all along.

Hence, in Prevailing Word, we started a series called Bringing Order Back To The Family.”

This series was birthed out of hearing Brother Lonnie share the need for “Bull Elephants” to return to the “herd” and to bring order.

It is not enough to talk about problems unless you are involved in providing solutions. CURE is part of providing solutions and I urge all pastors to consider doing something to face the issues and crisis of our times.

As I have stated before, there is a two pronged attack against the African American community. Abortion and Homosexuality.

The LGBT agenda is a clear and present danger to families all across the US.

Since the political process has made it their business to systemically deplete our numbers, we have accepted the overt strategy without a fight. From our African American leadership, their silence, and their instruction to us to be silent is the poison of the devil that has crippled and paralyzed us. However, there are those that are breaking away from the pack and we are deliberately ignoring their orders. It is sad to watch in our neighborhoods, the mother and her child. You look on their ring finger, and there is no ring.

It doesn’t mean that they may not be married, but for all intents and purposes, the ring was a sense of pride for women. The wedding band represents that a husband is in her life. That she is secure and the child has a legitimate family in a father and mother that is married. Today the bedroom is cheapened. Males expect sex for free. The outcome is the same and every young woman is expected to be added to the statistics of families without male leadership.

The cause of all abortions is the sin of fornication and adultery, hence the root cause of fornication and adultery is the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of lifeThe unregenerate heart that deliberately sin against God and His Word is the core of the plight of our people, and all people as well.

We are faced with a crisis where many of our families are suffering from male leadership in the home.

A few days ago, Brother Lonnie shared about Bull Elephants on his FB pageHe shared this out of watching his dad lead in tough times. It was a touching write up on Facebook and it underscores the fact that our youth is without strong male leadership. We are watching single parents raise males and that is not according to God’s order.

We have this all backwards. First come love. Then comes the carriage. Here comes momma with no marriage.

This is because there is a lack of spiritual leadership that address the real issues confronting the people that attend the church. Until there is a admission of a crisis, things will continue to decline for people. We have become so comfortable in our homes and churches that all we really care about is feeling good. Never mind the pain that disorder brings. As long as a preacher preaches good things to me and do not remind me about sin and it’s consequences, all is well.

The devil doesn’t care if we have church. He is only concerned when we become what Jesus intended all along.

In our people that attend church in the past, there was a quality of caring and morals that helped most families through certain crisis. It wasn’t perfect and families were perfect. Families were never perfect after the fall, but the thing that is lacking today is the fact that people forget God. In the families of old, when there was trouble in the home, some were smart enough to find the Bible, pray, and seek the face of God for solutions.

Today, when there is a problem in the home, we resort to time wasters and distractions to get through life’s issues.

If we are struggling, we resort to the bottle, sex, homosexuality, drugs or use all of the above. Instead of being sober and find the right kind of help, we stray into the wrong kind of help and compound our issues.

Proverbs 4:23 says to “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”

Male leadership in the home is the missing link, but I want to rephrase this a little bit. Godly male leadership in the home.

The Lord dropped this in my spirit when we were attending our nephew’s graduation.

With God you will succeed. Without God you must fail.

One of the things that is required in male leadership is that he must know God. A male could be a great provider, love his family, takes care of his wife, and do everything that is required in leading the home. Commendable, but when he doesn’t know the Lord, it is for nothing.

“What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and lose his own soul?”

Jesus said this to the people after the young man wanted Jesus to order his brother to give his share of the inheritance to him. You can do great things in the home for your family but if you are doing it without the Lord, it is all for nothing. The man must lead by having the Lord lead his life. Things will happen in the family that a man by himself can never fix. A man with God and His Word will be able to get through tough times because he is looking to The Man, Christ Jesus.

Strong male leadership is not about being a despot or a dictator. It is about providing wisdom on a moment’s notice. It is about being decisive with the wisdom of God. It is about being there for the children. It is about making sure that God is at the foundation of everything we do. It is about a man submitting to the rule of God in His Word when the temptations and snares of life is about to overwhelm him to make bad decisions.

When a man is out of place. The woman is out of place, the children are misplaced, and God is replaced.

If we fail to get back in place, we are in disorder and the devil is the author of confusion, disruption, and destruction. IF we fail to get back in place, we can never expect family to function the way that God intended.

The Bull Elephant must return to lead the family. Godly male leadership is what will turn things around. Politicians have no business telling us how to rear our family. They are out of bounds. As the late president Ronald Reagan said, “Government is not the solution to the problem. Government is the problem.”

Today, these words ring true. The deliberate intentional intrusion into the privacy of the home has led to create an atmosphere of distrust. Sadly, the LGBT community has effectively used government to impose legislation that challenges our right to free speech, imposed acceptance of the sin of homosexuality, and legislated the systematic killing of the child from the womb. These things are detrimental to family. In certain states, they have gone as far as legislating curriculum to teach homosexuality to all age groups.

They are teaching our your children without parental consent.

Our silence is permission and when we fail to speak up, or when we are told to be quiet, we are permitting our own destruction.

What are we to do?

Find ways to get involved.

Community workshops, political involvement. Above all, the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ that becomes relevant to the issues confronting us today. The leaders of the Civil Rights movement were young but they were bold and daring. They had strength and courage to confront the woes that plagued all people. We are faced with the same crisis but with a different agenda. We must get something done or we will watch, with eyes wide open, the death of all people through demonic agendas.

We are lacking male leadership and until we make a change, we will sit at home and just complain about it, and this is exactly what the world doesn’t mind. When we make a decision to step out of the safety of our homes and churches to make a difference, it takes courage and strength. Preaching used to be easy but now, we are faced with a crisis that demands preaching, and living the Word on a different dimension. A different level. A different culture and environment is before us and God always had a Word for the generation that strayed from the faith.

God always had a plan for each generation.

As always, the Lord never failed. The government may think it can do what it wants, but when the will of God is declared, there is nothing that no man could do. He said through the prophet Isaiah, “I will do all My pleasure.”

Make no mistake about it. To stop the hand of God is a death sentence unless there is repentance.

As one song states, “Your arms are too short to box with God.”

With pastors that are living on the side lines, the problem is, you know you heard from God, what are you and I going to do about it?

As long as this is not a crisis to you, you and I are status quo minded people, and we are deserving of death.

LGBT: A New Wave Coming At You -EX GAY AFFIRMING CHURCHES

In light of many local churches and pastors becoming Gay Affirming Churches, we unapologetically declare the fact that we are an EXGAY AFFIRMING CHURCH.

Paul said, in 1 Corinthians 6:11…

“And such WERE some of you. But you WERE washed, but you WERE sanctified, but you WERE justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”

There are those that live in hopelessness unnecessarily. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides hope for those trapped in the sin of homosexuality. Through the sinless, shed blood of Jesus, by His grace, and mercy, you can experience new life in Christ to prevail over the sin of homosexuality.

The intent is not about heterosexuality. The intent is to help you, through the grace of God, to willingly move you from sin, to holiness, to help you become whole in Christ.

Even if you have an STD, or HIV/AIDS, it is not over.

The love of God is still extended to you no matter what you have.

Prevailing Word Ministries stands ready to minister to you no matter what you have.

Provided that you never lose hope, repent of your sins, and obey the good news of Jesus Christ. We are here to help you, and all who come to receive eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, as opposed to receiving the wages of sin, which is death, or eternal separation from the Lord forever.

The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church.

We believe that the Lord calls all sinners to repent, believe the gospel, and be saved.

That includes all fornicators, adulterers, homosexuals, bisexuals, catamites, sodomites, lesbians, and other involved in sexual immorality. His love, grace, and mercy is extended to all who repent and come to Christ, having their sins washed away by the blood of the Lamb.

We welcome all who desire to repent and be saved. Even if you do not want to repent, you are welcome to attend our local church to hear the unadulterated Word of the living God.

Those who practice sin are not excluded from attending our church, however, it is only through repentance of sins that a person can be saved, delivered, and set free from the bondages of all sin, including the sin of homosexuality.

The sexual immorality events that confront the church require that we make a Biblical statement so as not to give any hint of an appearance of condoning that which God condemned and declare as a detestable sin.

Also, it is folly to attempt to lower the stigmatization associated with homosexuality to lessen the sin of homosexuality to a level playing field. Sodom and Gomorrah is proof of what is in the mind of God regarding the sin of homosexuality. Few realize that any stigmatization practicing homosexuals may feel, is truly the convicting power of the Holy Spirit to convince the world of sin according to John 16:8-9.

As with all sinners, suppression of conviction is nothing more than remorse that will never turn into repentance until godly sorrow comes.

First, the Holy Bible is the infallible, inerrant Word of God.

To attempt to minimize, reduce, adjust, or alter the Word of God to exclude the sin of homosexuality is a bold and blatant attempt to question and put on trial the God of heaven, and His Word. To mislead people by using the Scriptures in making erroneous claims that fail the test of contextual or harmony of Scripture regarding the sin of homosexuality, is a misguided and miscalculated attempt to make it appear that God was wrong and sinful man was right.

The God of heaven and earth and the Bible was here before all of us, and should Jesus tarry, the God of heaven and earth, and the Bible will be here after us.

This brings about the eternally established facts that….

God cannot change. Malachi 3:6 says…

“I am the Lord, I change not.”

God cannot lie. Numbers 23:19 and says…

“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor the son of man, that He should repent.”

God’s Word is eternally established in heaven. Psalm 119:89 says…

“Forever, O Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven.”

Therefore, God’s position against all unrighteousness, including the sin of homosexuality, is clearly established. His position to redeem man is also established.

Second, the Bible is clear regarding the sin of homosexuality.

Leviticus 18:22 tells us that “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”

Many opponents of the Bible will attempt to assert that the Old Testament does not apply today because of the New Testament.

This is error.

Many will assert the flawed argument that the laws of the Old Testament were done away with when the New Testament was established. This fallacy serves only one purpose, the continuation of sin.

In the Old Testament, there were three types of law given to the children of Israel.

1. Moral. 2. Ceremonial. 3. Dietary.

The one aspect of law that carried over into the New Testament is “moral law.”

For instance, Hebrews 13:4 says, “Marriage in honorable among all and the bed undefiled, but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”

Therefore, fornication and adultery is morally wrong in the Old and New Testament. Because it is true that the sin of fornication and adultery is morally wrong, the sin of homosexuality is equally wrong as with all other moral sins.

Some will argue that nothing was said about God judging the sin of homosexuality after Sodom and Gomorrah. Quite the contrary. The aggressive tactics of LGBT extremists will go as far as the universe (if they could) to discredit the Bible and anyone that stands for the truth that is eternally embedded in the Word of God.

LGBT has concluded that the Bible is outdated, archaic, and no longer acceptable for the times we are currently living in. They declare that the church is outdated and need to catch up to the times the world is living in.

Quite the opposite is true.

Man is behind eternity and needs to catch up with God through repentance and receiving eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

The destruction of lawless people during the days of Noah and the destruction of homosexuals living in Sodom and Gomorrah, and the surrounding cities, was conclusive proof of God’s eternal abhorrence of all sexual immorality.

1 Corinthians 6:9 says…

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”

The list in this verse declares that entrance will be denied to those that practice these sins.

Ceremonial law and dietary law were done away with according to Colossians 2:11-23.

Thirdly, consequential judgment is imposed upon all that practice lawlessness.

For sexual immorality, STDs come upon those that transgress Genesis 2:24 and Hebrews 13:4.

For those that practice the sin of homosexuality, Romans 1:18-32 clearly states that when a man or woman engage in the sin of homosexuality, they receive “…in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”

The Gay Man’s Disease, changed now to be known as HIV/AIDS is the penalty of their error which was due.” The change occurred because of the negative stigmatization applied to those that practice the detestable sin of homosexuality.

As a result, collateral damage is upon the whole world. From children born to parents practicing the sin of homosexuality, or bisexuality, to accidental needle pricks, intravenous drug use, tainted blood supplies for blood transfusions, and other means of contracting the AIDS virus.

It is undeniably documented that the primary means of contracting the AIDS virus will always be MSM.

This is further evidence that the sin of homosexuality is an abomination or detestable because of the consequential results of such perversion.

Fourth, the error of declaring the sin of homosexuality a sexual orientation, racism, bigotry, or discrimination.

The Civil Rights Movement of the 1950’s and 60’s was about racial equality, not sexual orientation. Black people were denied basic rights that were already afforded to every person born in the United States. Segregation and Jim Crow laws were used to suppress Black people after president Lincoln gave the Emancipation Proclamation.

Sadly, and abhorrently, LGBT perverted and polluted the NAACP and other Black institutions by coercion and without any doubt, money, to see to it that the sin of homosexuality and those that practice this ungodly sin, has its place as those that are being discriminated against. LGBT successfully manipulated Civil Rights to the degree that it is no longer about sin, but bigotry.

Fifth, political correctness vs. Biblical correctness.

It is politically incorrect for God fearing people to preach or share that homosexuality is a sin as declared by God in the Holy Bible. In a politically correct world declaring homosexuality as a sin is hateful, bigotry, and discrimination. This is a cold, calculated attempt to silence the voice of righteousness so that the sin of homosexuality could be accepted as a normal lifestyle.

However, we all know that homosexuality is not normal because of the consequences imposed upon those that practice the sin of homosexuality. Furthermore, anyone living in America has equal protection under the law, but we all know that according to the Scriptures, marriage is defined as one man and one woman, joined in holy matrimony.

To afford homosexuals the right to marry is perversion. There is no question about what is being practiced in the bedroom of those who commit these sins. There is no question about the results and consequences that follow those that practice the sin of homosexuality, or for any sexual sins.

Therefore, we at Prevailing Word Ministries will err on the side of being Biblically correct and be politically incorrect. We much rather seek to please God than to displease God. We fear God than to fear man any day of the week, 24/7.

Therefore, Prevailing Word Ministries will always welcome those that are bound in any sin, including the sin of homosexuality, to minister to all with the truth of God’s Word in the love of God while standing firm, and immovable in the truth.

Prevailing Word Ministries will never apologize for standing in the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ, nor retreat from those that insist in aggressively pushing the LGBT agenda in an attempt to silence our righteous voice, and force this local church to turn its back on the Most Holy God and His Word, the Holy Bible.

Prevailing Word Ministries is an EX GAY AFFIRMING CHURCH.

The Fight And Courage To Never Sin That Sin Again

For the last four years and a few months, it’s been a rewarding journey. The fight to keep yourself from the sin that you were held bound to is the toughest battle of your life. Over these years, the growth in the Lord and the learning experience gained was invaluable. The previous blogs that I have written revealed a lot about how the Lord worked with me to keep myself pure from porn and masturbation.

The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life surrounded me like the Indians circling the cowboys.

In 1 Corinthians 9:27, it was a critical key to being successful against the onslaught of sexual temptation. If we do not beat down our flesh, the flesh and the mind will dictate the way we live our lives.

There comes a point in time where we must stop what we are doing and reconsider the fact that if we sin constantly, after having received instructions from the Lord about how to walk in the victory achieved on the cross, then satan is our real lord.

We know that when we sin after we receive instructions, we are disqualified. We are not fit or prepared for the Master’s use. We call it a “mistake,” to soften the blow that we have sinned. Sin is a very strong word. When a person hear this word, it is a clear indication that you violated the known will of God.

In order to “Come Clean,” acknowledgement of sin is required. Side stepping, story telling to deflect the blow of the sin, and other nifty, deft ways to deal with sin only reveals that we have failed to truly understand the magnitude of sin. Every time that we sin, the Father is hurt. He wants His children mature to the point where we stop ourselves from sinning. After all, this is what salvation is about. To stop sin and to save us from our sins through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.

Some will unhesitatingly say, “You do not understand.” I understand more than you will ever know. When you have been trapped in the web of Secret Sexual Sins of porn and masturbation for 33 years, I know all too well the excuse and excuses to continue in sin, but the Lord Jesus knows all too well beyond me. He was made to be sin for us, who knew no sin that we might be made the righteousness of God in Christ. For we do not have an High Priest who cannot be touched with the feelings of our weaknesses who was in all points tempted like as we are, yet, He never once sinned.

So the Lord sympathizes with you. Therefore, we can go boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

The first 10 chapters of the book of Romans is the most profound discourse on sin and the redemptive power of Christ. Paul understood the depths the Father went to redeem man. Romans uncovers the heart of the Father about sin unlike any other book ever written. It is clear that the Father wants us to understand the power of sin, and the power of redemption. The Father wants us to understand that the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Father wants us to understand that He demonstrated His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.

The most important thing that the Father wants us to understand that His hatred for sin is perfect and complete, otherwise, He would not have sent His Son to die. We must remember that Jesus became the “propitiation” or appeasement” of the Father’s righteousness and His demands as a just and holy God. Folks, this is the way it is. The Father demands that holiness be the required way of life for His creation. The Creator has this right because we owe our existence to Him.

Paul said this about Jesus, “by Him all things consist.”

Death is not supposed to be the reason why we are here today. God is life, but because of Adam’s transgression, it takes death to bring us life. The moment we understand this, we can understand that death is not just the cessation of life. Death is separation from the One who gives life. So, if we want life, we now have to go through His Son to get it. Then after we initially get eternal life, we now must purpose in our hearts never to sin again.

Some of you believe that it is impossible to stop sinning.

Well let me use an analogy that the Holy Spirit gave me.

What do you do when you are about to cross the street? You stop. What do you do when you are driving a vehicle and you approach a stop light or a stop sign? You stop. You’ve just proved that you can stop. So if you can stop and obey traffic signals, you can stop sinning. As I have said before in my previous blogs, the man at the pool of Bethesda and the woman caught in adultery were told by the Lord Jesus to “go and sin no more.”

This is a profound truth. That we can go and sin no more. That tells us that sin’s power can no longer lord itself over me and reduce me to a slave of sin. That’s what Romans 6 teaches us. For years, I avoided that chapter because I loved the pleasure of sin. But now, I love the pleasure of righteousness. I love to please the Father. Every day that I stay from porn and masturbation, I am, by the grace and power of God, living to please Him. We are not perfect, but we are striving towards perfection.

Every moment that I stay free is a moment that the strength to resist, withstand, holdout, gets stronger and stronger. To the point where you can identify sin coming a mile away. Also, you have a plan to overcome the instant sin is coming your way to destroy you. As many men of God have said, “if you do not have a plan, you plan to fail.”

Many brothers are turning their backs on what God told them to do. They have strayed into the minefield of Secret Sexual Sins. From porn and masturbation to out right prostitution, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, and bisexuality. The promise to “keep yourself pure” has been thrown away for a moment of orgasm. The power to procreate is very powerful. The lusts of the flesh, and eyes can easily overwhelm an individual. Temptation from the devil doesn’t make it easy. But the Lord made a way out for all of us. We must fight with courage to abstain and maintain our sanctification.

It took me a long time to figure this out but for you that may be young in the flesh and young in the Lord, you can stop the madness of sin and live victorious, Christian lives.

The power of sin can no longer tell you to sin. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. As long as I obey that law and tell my members what to do in righteousness, the freedom from the law of sin and death remains intact. The moment that I decide to suppress the Holy Spirit, suppress the Word of God to live a sanctified life, and turn my back on God, sin and death is mine.

But thank God that the Lord forgives us. Not to sin again and again, but to live righteously for the rest of our lives.

When you come to the Father, it is important to know that He loves us and He wants the best for us. Sin is never the best course. But we also have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the Righteous. Not to sin again that grace may abound, but to live free of the power and guilt of sin. Therefore, when you are tempted to watch porn, resist it. When you are tempted to masturbate, resist it. When you are tempted to fornicate. Resist it. When you are tempted to carry out homosexual acts. Resist it. When you are tempted to look lustfully upon a male or female. Resist it. When you are tempted, count it all joy when you fall into various trials and testings.

For the trying of your faith works patience. Therefore, let patience have its perfect work that you may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Finally, the people of God should never applaud sin. When a person admits their sin and not label it as a “mistake” we must remember that sin always hurts the heart of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

“And grieve not the Holy Spirit.” Paul said in Ephesians 4:30. Very few have understood the grieving of the Holy Spirit. It is similar to a father grieving over his child that turned away and go astray. Parents grieve when a child goes down a certain path. When we prodigal our lives, we bring shame and disgrace to the Father. But thank God that the Lord looks down the path to see if we would return. Such is the case with the Father. Without question, the Lord receives us and throws a party that we have returned from trying conditions brought about by sin.

We can prevent these moments of grief for the Lord. Permission to sin is never given. But the Lord is always ready to forgive and forget, the moment we repent.
