Justices Thomas and Alito correctly, in descent, declared that Kim Davis’ Constitutional right to apply her faith in objecting to applying her signature to a same sex marriage certificate was clearly Constitutional.
There’s no question that she was deliberately targeted to make a point.
As with Cakes With Melissa and other believers in Christ that were sued, arrested, or fired from their jobs because they’ve refused to provide service, honoring the vile sin of homosexuality. They declared every resistance as sexual discrimination.
All of a sudden, homosexuality is a “race” deserving of laws to get people to accept sin as normal. Homosexuality isn’t a race of people. But they’ve hijacked The Civil Rights movement and now it’s a violation of law.
Furthermore, you’re not allowed to practice your faith.
So you violate Civil Rights because you obeyed your conscience and exercised your Constitutional right to practice your religion. In turn, they get to exercise their religion and are more protected by law than other America citizens.
Homosexuality is an act of sin, not a race of people.
See how insane people are?
The Constitution doesn’t have a provision regarding marriage, let alone, same sex marriage. Now Justices Thomas and Alito concurred but the Constitution DOES have a provision in guarding your right to exercise religion.
Kim Davis was arrested and jailed, and later freed.
The lower court’s ruling became the law of the land in June of 2015 during the Obama administration.
Even without the Constitution, believers in Christ will do the Word of Christ because true believers obey the Lord over any court ruling to force believers to violate the Scriptures.
While there is a need to apply the Scriptures, it’s important to understand that NOTHING GOOD comes out of the vile sin of homosexuality.
Name one thing that’s good about the vile sin of homosexuality.
Love? God’s love to deliver all from sin is far better.
STD’s. Is that good? Obviously not.
Romans 1:26-32 (NKJV Strong’s)
‘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.”
Why did God gave them up?
Because homosexuals insisted on doing things that’s insane. It’s against nature. It’s a biological violation. Man can’t give birth. And women can’t inseminate. It’s confusion, but they don’t care.
They’ve insisted and the Lord turned them over to do those things that is against nature.
But that’s not enough.
The whole intent is to normalize confusion. And to get normal people to be just as confused as they are. And then to make it a law to give it an appearance that the vile sin of homosexuality is normal. And then penalize you if you refuse to be as insane as they are.
Just on its face, same sex marriage will never have merit. Sin cannot stand on its on merit.
You can read about the SCOTUS ruling here.
There is no need to elongate this second rebuttal to EXMInistries.
Lonnie Poindexter, of Freedom’s Journal Radio Show, corrected me about a recent resignation that took place of a clerk due to her religions faith regarding issuing marriage licenses to homosexuals.
In a nutshell, Brother Lonnie said to me that if the righteous resigns, we leave a vacuum open for evil to assume office. That this is exactly what the devil wants. Righteousness to vacate. This was in response to a post on FB, that I commended the stand on Biblical truth but I never commended the resignation.
Lonnie Poindexter’s point was well noted and received. He is correct to point out that if the righteous walk away, the darkness moves in without a fight.
This is called by my fellow abortion abolitionists (Abolishhumanabortion.com) “Righteous resistance to evil authorities.” Acts 5:29.
In fact, the post, if I remember correctly, included the link to a story about a clerk resigning and EXMInistries concurring with this resignation. That this is what’s supposed to happen.
This is what EXMinistries and others supporting resignations want. For Christians to resign.
Then in using a Scripture that some of us may be familiar with (see Matthew 22:15-22)….“Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s….” we see that Scripture twisting is the norm, even for believers that should know well their Bibles. The issue was about money. “Who’s inscription is this Jesus asked,” Caesar’s inscription was on the coin. The question was about Jews paying tax to Caesar. This ties in succinctly with Romans 13. Romans 13 is the concurring Scripture regarding taxes, not homosexuality.
Nice try, by the way, to twist this Scripture.
But now, what about homosexuality? Is there a law that specifically states that “homosexuality is the law of the land?”
The answer is simple.
There is none.
So Caesar can’t get what Caesar wants because there is no law of the land.
I find it very hard to believe that people can’t grasp this simple statement, but then again, I shouldn’t be surprised because these are the last days and some of us didn’t get the memo.
From a Constitutional perspective, there is no law in the Constitution regarding same sex marriage. The 10th Amendment is clear that any law, according to governor Mike Huckabee and senator Ted Cruz, and other Constitutional scholars/attorneys, that there is no specific law in the Constitution governing marriage and that such laws are to be given by the states. That’s the 10th Amendment.
School Prayer, Abortion, and now, Same Sex Marriage has all been “phantom law” on the misapplied 14th Amendment “Equal Protection” Clause. The original intent of the 14th Amendment was about race.
According to the 10th Amendment, states govern the laws regarding marriage.
Kentucky has no laws on homosexual marriage, and the Constitution has no laws on marriage. Plain and simple.
So the question is very simple.
“What law (of “Caesar”), if any, did Kim Davis break, whether Constitution or Kentucky law that specifically stated that a clerk MUST issue a marriage license to homosexuals?
If a law was created by the U.S. Congress and or Kentucky legislature, please state that law so”Caesar” can be served.
All I am saying is that if there is no law, then Kim Davis was unlawfully imprisoned for a law that doesn’t exist. Secondly, the Supreme Court has no way to enforce the law but leaves that up to the lower circuit or county courts. What we are saying is that there is a clear usurping of the Constitutional process of establishing laws to create a law that doesn’t exist. In other words, Genesis 3:1-7 just happened all over again and we didn’t pay attention.
If Kentucky had a law on the books regarding SSM, then this is a “gotcha” moment, but there is no law.
We can cut to the chase by answering this question mentioned above.
Romans 13 is clear that all authority comes from God.
So you mean to tell me that we are to obey a law from man about the sin of homosexuality? Then that means that God has to raise from the dead all those that commit sexual immorality, including the ones that were destroyed in Sodom and Gomorrah, and apologize to them.
NO need to go any further than this. Answer these questions, citing a law or laws that legalized homosexual marriage, and then we can move on.
Until then, if you want to continue being blinded by the world’s version of the greatest hijacking of law in history, by all means, go ahead.
Just ask me for a pillow when you hit the bottom of the ditch.
The YouTube video posted by EXMinistries can be seen here.
For years, the elite of the sin of homosexuality have been trying to push the true believers into the closet that they came out of. The closet, when the light is out, is a very dark place. It represents, shame, hopelessness, and carries the stigma of performing vile acts that no one should know the person that does such disgusting things.
Since many of them have come out of the closet, the unclean spirits that drive them have all come out to push the true believers into the closet. To make Christ and His true followers to feel the shame and hopelessness, to give Christianity a stigma that it is vile and disgusting. That Christianity is full of bigots, discriminant, and hateful.
The very thing that the elite of homosexuality is about.
It is clear that when it comes to sexual sins, the demons behind those that are trapped in homosexuality, adultery, fornication, porn, and masturbation are very mean.
Like all hellish angels of the devil, they have a job to do and their boss, satan, is the meanest and nastiest angel of them all.
The book of Ephesians chapter 6 tells us that there are principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, wicked spirits in the heavenly places.
It shows the order and ranking of demons. In this order and ranking of demons, we see that it possess militancy within their ranks.
Highest rank– Wicked spirits in heavenly places. Similar to National Level Leadership.
Second in rank– rulers of the darkness of this world. Similar to Governor Level Leadership.
Third in rank– powers. Similar to County Level Leadership.
Last in rank– principalities. Similar to Foot Soldiers.
There is another interpretation of this and that it’s all one group, described in four ways. That is questionable.
Of the angels of the Lord, they are called the hosts of heaven. Host, in some places in the Bible refers to armies. In some translations of the Bible, they are angel armies. So even the holy angels of the Lord have rank and order. So it is no doubt that they carried the same order from their former abode as they defected and rebelled against God.
Besides, you consistently see Gabriel and Michael as the two high ranking angels in the kingdom of God. When there is something of great importance, these two are sent by God. The revelation that Daniel received came from Gabriel, but Michael assisted Gabriel to break free of the wicked spirits in heavenly places. Gabriel also came to Mary regarding the birth of Jesus. In the NT Book of Revelation, Michael was recorded as the archangel that led the battle against Lucifer and his forces to cast them out of heaven.
We must remember that anything that is false must first have been true. Anything that is a copy has an origin.
When it comes to rank, it all comes down to execution of orders from above. Or, in this case, orders from high echelons of darkness.
When it comes to pushing an agenda, the sin of homosexuality will not be polite, nice, and pretty.
To get their point across, they will use every tool available to make sure that you understand where they are coming from. From the higher leaders of the sin of homosexuality comes a very mean and nasty spirit. They hate the truth within the gospel. They hate anyone that is a true believer in the Lord. They hate the Lord.
This hatred is clearly expressed in Psalm 2:1-3.
“Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
“Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
All through the NT, we see that when righteousness comes to the world, there is a tremendous war and battle against the righteous. So much so, that when the homosexuals came out of their closet, their intent was to push us into their closet.
The fearful, the compromisers, the jelly back professed believers fell for their tactic. The intimidation was so great that instead of fighting back, they capitulated and agreed with the agenda of sin. Laws were crafted to give teeth to their anger. Many that were once strong are now weak.
At the slightest sense of trouble, they would flex their muscles and the fear of satan would be enough to get some people to back away.
Oh….but the strong believers were never counted on. They thought that we would fall in line with the rest of the weak back professed believers.
All across the nation, the “PUSHBACK” is happening.
We must remember that the book of Daniel is a pivotal book for the end times but it is also a book that showed us how to perform even when in captivity.
That when they make laws, defy them. That when believers are threatened with jail, monetary fines, and death, to stand up to evil.
This is happening all across the United States.
They didn’t expect this. They thought that it would all go according to plan with little to no opposition.
We intend to remain defiant regardless of how many laws they pass. No matter how mean and nasty they get. No matter the cost to our businesses, employment, or threats. We will not deny our Lord Who is high above all. Included a defeated foe called satan and his hosts.
All across America, the decline of support for the sin of homosexuality is registered. Even within their own ranks, we see that they see the unfairness of forcing Christian business to decline service. As we have said, this is America. If someone refuses service, go find a business that will do what you ask. There are plenty of bakers that will serve you.
The proponents of homosexuality much rather try to make a statement to get other Christian businesses to conform in fear of the law. However, we serve God.
We cannot expect His protection and have His provisions when we deliberately violate His principles.
God’s house. God’s rules.
He is the Creator. We are the created. Last we checked, a created being can’t tell the Creator what to do.
Just like you have power over what you make, God has power over His creation.
So let’s not get it twisted.
Our intent is not to push homosexuals back into the closet. We want them to come out and be free.
“You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free…..Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
We must hate what God hates and love what God loves.
When it comes to sin, we must hate sin. So this is how our Lord wants us to behave when the forces of darkness act mean…..
Matthew 5:43-48 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.”
We can love our enemies while telling our enemies that the sin they are involved in is vile, disgusting, and destructive to the traditional family setting. Much more, it is an abomination to the Lord God. God is holy and sin will not be a part of His kingdom. To be in His kingdom, there must be a desire to please the Lord on His terms. We must accept the provisions of salvation.
Jesus didn’t just die. He died to free us from sin’s power. He died to pay the penalty of sin so we wouldn’t have to pay the penalty. This demonstration of love has a “sell by date.” The coming of the Lord or your death, which ever comes first. There’s no do overs, second chances, or deal cutting after you leave this life. The deal is on the table as long as you are alive on this side of life.
The decline of the support for same sex marriage is a telling sign that what they hoped for would overwhelm the United States. It was an attempt to give evidence of growing support for the sin of homosexuality. It backfired.
The article that shows this decline could be read here.
It is clear that the Methodist ministers have made an exit from the Bible. A bishop performed the ceremony of matrimony between a former Methodist pastor and his homosexual partner.
There is no question that Jesus would not approve of this based on their definition of Jesus sharing “love and inclusion.”
Homosexuals must prevail over the following things.
1. God’s Word Of Creating Male & Female.
2. Jesus’ Unquestioned Agreement And Affirmation Of Marriage Between One Male And One Female.
3. Sexual Purity As Stated In Leviticus chapter 18.
We must remember that John 1:1-2 says “In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him and without Him was not anything made that was made.”
Colossians 1:15-17 says “He (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him (Jesus) all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him (Jesus) and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him (Jesus) all things consist.”
Parenthesis of Jesus are mine.
Since Jesus is the Word, Jesus gave Leviticus chapter 18 to Moses. We do not see Jesus disagreeing, changing, altering Leviticus chapter 18.
Also in Matthew 19:4-6, Jesus reiterated what happened in Genesis 1:26-27 and Genesis 2:21-25. “And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
The Big Lie……….Jesus said nothing about homosexuality.
What the elite want you to believe is that Jesus is not against homosexuality because He didn’t make a statement using the word “homosexual.”
Slick, but not slick enough.
The statement Jesus made regarding marriage between one man and one woman is more than enough to overwhelm and overcome the lie about Jesus not using the word “homosexual.”
Notice that Jesus said……“Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’
The first thing that homosexuals have to prevail over is creation.
God made them male and female.
Homosexuals are not noted in Matthew 19:4-5 as being created as the same sex for compatibility. Therefore, homosexuals cannot prevail over this statement by Jesus.
Opposite sex is reiterated again when Jesus said……”….father and mother….”
Notice again that Jesus never said……..father and father or mother and mother.
Once again, homosexuals cannot prevail over this statement.
So creation of male and female is established without controversy or dispute. Also marriage between one man and one woman is established in the Bible and is without controversy or dispute. Jesus reiterates that statement, denoting the undeniable fact that there is no change from Jesus because of these factors.
1. Jesus was with the Father from the beginning.
2. The Father created male and female.
3. The Father created all things by Jesus.
4. The Father brought the woman to the male, not a male to the male.
So with these things clearly established in the Word, it is foolish to violate Scripture to justify homosexual unions, marriages, or whatever. It is inconsistent with Scripture, so we need not be deceived like they were.
Homosexuals have to prevail over the judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Homosexuals have to find Scripture where Jesus was against the Father pouring out fire and brimstone on the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Homosexuals have to find Scripture where Jesus struck from the law Leviticus chapter 18 that such sexual immorality laws are no longer in effect today.
Finally, homosexuals must prevail over the Scriptures by striking Psalm 119-89, Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 6:17-18; 13:8, James 1:16-18 from the Bible.
That’s because you have to ask yourself one question……….
How can Jesus approve same sex marriage if there is no Scriptural evidence of Jesus removing, altering, changing, and disagreeing with the Father from the beginning?
Homosexuals do not have any Scripture in the Bible to prevail over the established will of God regarding the sin of homosexuality. 1 Corinthians 13:5 states love……”rejoices not in iniquity but rejoices in the truth.”
Homosexuals do not have any Scripture to prevail over the fact that love……”rejoices not in iniquity but rejoices in the truth.”
How can “love win” when God’s love doesn’t rejoice over iniquity which is sin, and that love rejoices over the truth?
The truth is that God declared homosexuality as “an abomination” or “disgusting.”
Therefore, it is sin because wrath was poured from heaven as judgment for the sin of homosexuality. Otherwise, if homosexuality was not a sin, there would be no reason to pour fire and brimstone on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.
There is no Scripture that includes sin in the kingdom of God. In Isaiah 6 and in the book of Revelation chapter 4, the angels cry “Holy, Holy, Holy.
Not Holy and Sin, Holy and Sin, Holy and Sin.
The world is trying desperately to call that which is profane holy, while calling that which is holy profane.
All over again, the devil is trying to usurp the throne of God but the devil will never get back in heaven ever again.
He will never see the throne of God.
In the back of the book, he will not appear before the Great White Throne judgment seat because Jesus said, in John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
And in John 14:30 “I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.”
And in John 16:8-11 “And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.”
At the end of the Book, the angel will grab the devil and throw him into the bottomless pit for 1000 years. After he is loosed for a season to go against the saints, the devil will be thrown straight into “…the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.” Completely bypassing any appearance before God.
So the holy and the profane will never commingle in heaven.
That’s why 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 is there. That’s why Ephesians 5:25-32 is there.
The attack on marriage, and the inclusion of the sin of homosexuality into the church is about trying to mix the holy with the profane.
So since the devil cannot prevail, what makes the world think that it can prevail over the Word of God?
Former president Jimmy Carter has transgressed the Word by saying that Jesus would approve of gay marriage, but he conceded that there is no Scripture to justify homosexuals and homosexual marriage. James 4:4 is against him. A capitulation of epic proportions to deceive those that do not know their Bible.
Again, those that purport the sin of homosexuality were never in the church to begin with. According to Jude, they crept in, acted like the church for a while, and then at the right moment, emerged as rogue believers.
The true church of Jesus Christ, the true believers that know the Word of God would never defect from the truth.
1 John 2:18-19 “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.”
So people, do not be deceived.
They do not have anything more authoritative than the Word of God to prevail over God’s institution of marriage between one man and one woman.
The article from The Blaze could be read here.
Someone posted on FB proof that muslim bakery owners in the United States have no problems turning away practicing homosexuals when they come in to their muslim stores to ask that a same sex wedding cake be made.
So far, (and I could be wrong, and I am hoping that this is not a hoax,) to date, there is no evidence of a case of discrimination brought against muslims. By hidden camera, the evidence is clear about muslims refusing to make a cake to celebrate same sex marriage in the United States.
It’s further proof that practicing homosexuals are only targeting true believers of the Lord Jesus Christ.
It’s further proof of the cowardice of practicing homosexuals.
They fear muslims than Christians. Then again, it is obvious that if there is a much more stronger threat to the sin of homosexuality, you focus on that threat to annihilate it.
Proving once again that Jesus is Lord and the power of the gospel to change a person’s life is the greatest threat to sin. If the gospel wasn’t the greatest threat, then the elite would be concentrating on something else.
Because they know that they will be refused service by muslims that practice their religious convictions. And when we practice our religious beliefs, we are fined, threatened, intimidated, bullied, sent to “sensitivity training and re-indoctrination,” forced to apologize to the entire LGBT community, and we are told to keep quiet about the case or face further sanctions.
Now a congressional act is being brought before the Congress and Senate to protect the free speech and practice religion rights just for pastors whereas, muslims don’t need an act because they know they won’t be targeted. At least for now.
Just in case the elite lobby of LGBT and any 2016 democratic presidential candidate gets in the WH is successful in removing the First Amendment or equally worse, a Supreme Court justice(s) retire or die.
The elite of LGBT know that they would be declared “open game” for jihadists. Many muslims would fill the streets to protest if anyone of their muslim brothers and sisters are targeted by the elite of LGBT.
Goes to show you that even LGBT takes very seriously Clint Eastwood’s “Dirty Harry” line.
“A man’s got to know his limitations.”
I’ll change it to “A homosexual got to know its limitations.”
The YouTube hidden camera exchanges could be seen here.
The true believers is not about to throw in the towel.
WE WILL NOT QUIT, BACKUP, BACKDOWN, OR WALK AWAY.
NEITHER WILL WE THROW IN THE TOWEL.
Since the Supreme Court has rendered it’s overreach ruling, already the elite is at work to stop the counter attack coming from true believers across the nation.
The attorney general in Alabama, the courts in Alabama and Texas has issued a stay on the ruling and they are not issuing any marriage licenses for same sex couples.
When you overreach to stop states from handling it’s own affairs, this is what happens.
Well, they are taking a page out of the book of the Justice Department.
Remember when the Justice Department decided not to enforce the law on DOMA (Defense OF Marriage Act)?
Well if the federal government can withhold enforcing the law, why can’t the states?
In actuality it will produce tons of lawsuits but when clerks have a moral religious duty to follow their conscience to practice their religion, what are you going to do?
Some of the clerks have decided to take a stand and either not issue the marriage license, cease as a government to issue marriage licenses, or quit their jobs altogether.
While I do not want to offer any suggestions, it seems to me that LGBT need to open up their own government office and issue a piece of paper that say that they can get married instead of trying to force people that believe the Bible to give them something that the Bible never authorized.
According to Genesis 2:18-25, marriage is between one man and one woman. It is immutable and exclusively given to man by God Himself.
No where in the Scriptures will you see God bringing a man to a man or a woman to a woman. Then all of a sudden culture wants to change the way marriage has been for thousands of years?
According to the dissenting justices, there is nothing in the Constitution that says anything about marriage.
All of a sudden based on the 14th Amendment, Equal Protection Under The Law, an overreach took place. You’d expect that the five justices would see that but when two of the five performed same sex marriage, the pot is tainted. Instead of recusing themselves, they became Congress and legislated from the bench and chambers like many other lower courts have done.
This is unequal protection under the word of 5 justices, not equal protection under the law. Hence, separating a class of people (practitioners of homosexuality) into an elite class by themselves.
No matter what laws are passed by man, homosexuals will never be equal to marriage between male and female. Sin is never equal with righteousness. God is never equal with satan. Justice is never equal with injustice. The Supreme Court will never be equal with the Court of heaven.
LGBT need to quit trying to push the sin of homosexuality upon the whole world, and in particular, those that believe the Bible that declares without ambiguity that homosexuality is sin. There is a remedy for sin, provided in the Lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ.
While I am not naive to think that LGBT would quit, I know that they are preparing to counter the counter attack.
War is simply the “use of force to compel your enemy to submit to his will.”
In this war, it is important to understand that they are not going to quit and we that believe the Word of God is not going to quit. There is no middle ground for compromise. It is winner takes all.
LGBT’s elite knows that we will not stop or walk away from this battle just like we know that because of the gains achieved by LGBT, they will not quit.
While they have money, media, and sympathizers, we have the Lord of all the earth on our side.
What’s at stake is the heart and soul of America.
The moral destiny of this nation is at stake.
Again, we will not compromise the principles of the Word of God to have peace.
We are not looking at a “two state solution.”
Sin is not comfortable with righteousness because righteousness brings conviction.
Righteousness is not comfortable with sin because sin brings death.
“The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
It will always be good against evil. God against satan. Light against darkness. Righteousness against unrighteousness. The children of Light against the children of darkness. Darkness on manifests when the light is turned off or extinguished, but darkness is powerless agains the light.
Darkness’ only power is when there is no light.
Righteousness annoys and destroys the peace of sin.
We know who wins in the end, and it sure as heaven isn’t the devil. In the end, the devil loses and his children lose with him.
The elite of homosexuality is looking to force their will upon the righteous and it’s not gonna happen.
No matter how many laws they successfully pass and no matter how many cases come before the Supreme Court to make something that is vile, the law of the land, the righteous will defy all such laws to uphold the Word of God no matter the cost.
We are prepared to the death.
It will cost us, we make no mistake about it, but it goes with the territory.
But surrender is not in our creed.
We do not intend to fight flesh and blood as Paul said in Ephesians 6:12 because “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down reasonings and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ.”
We will not operate in the flesh to fight to shed blood.
We will walk in love as we share the truth. But we are also prepared to fight every battle legally. It doesn’t rule out peaceful protests and peaceful civil disobedience to any edict passed down by any court to force true believers to accept the sin of homosexuality.
Just know that we are “ambassadors for Christ.”
Each local church that is true to the Lord in upholding His Word in preaching and living, has orders from the King of kings and Lord of lords. We will not yield, backdown, backup, retreat, walk away, be in fear, and be intimidated.
Let your elite of the sin of homosexuality know that we will win and there is nothing that you can do about it.
Our God is greater. Our God is stronger. “Greater is He who is in us than he that is in the world.”
“In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.”
We still offer the love of God towards anyone that is willing to repent of the sin of homosexuality, adultery, fornication, bestiality, bisexuality, porn and masturbation. God will abundantly pardon.
God is a forgiving God but there is a “sell buy date” on receiving His forgiveness.
The coming of the Lord or your death, which ever comes first.
It does God no good to let you die without having the chance to repent.
“….not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”
Eternity in a burning hell is a long time to ask yourself why you “…neglect so great a salvation.”
It’s because of sin that men and women are sent to a burning hell for all eternity, but the Lord Jesus was sent to die for your sins to rescue you. We present this offer of salvation as your only hope of avoiding what is to come for every sinner that refuse and reject this generous offer of salvation.
There is power in the name of Jesus to deliver and set free every man bound in the any sin, including homosexuality.
The choice is up to you.
It is our right to preach this gospel (good news), it would be in your best interest to QUIT trying to take this right away from us.
At the same time, we are aware that you want the freedom to do sinful acts which you are doing anyway. To attempt to legitimize homosexuality by marriage and to squash freedom of religion that God said is a sin is an attack against our God given right to practice our religion.
You have a choice to accept or reject what we preach. But to overreach and stop us from exercising our right to practice religion is a fight we will not walk away from.
Just be advised.
If there is ever a time when the saints need to pray it is now.
But I will say this.
We need not fear the hour that we are in .
It may seem dark, and it is dark, but God is still God, no matter what happened today.
There is disappointment and sadness, but the Bible says, “This is the day the Lord has made. We shall rejoice and be glad in it.”
Why is this Scripture used?
Because the devil didn’t make this day. Our God is Greater. Our God is Stronger.
It may look like the Lord lost this one but God is never a loser. He’s never lost. It’s man that is lost and the devil is the biggest loser.
Psalm 2 comes to mind.
The world is attempting to cast off His restraining power and break God’s bands asunder.
In the end, God rules. The end of the Book tells us that the Lord wins. Not the devil. So don’t worry. But sober up. These are the end of days. These are the last days. The last day is sealed in the heart of the Father. Only the Lord knows when He will end this thing.
What we need to do is prepare our hearts for what is to come.
The elite of LGBT is not through. They will press until they get the true believers to bow. But they should know that that will never happen. The compromised backsliding professed believers are now put on notice.
Your days of living in the comfort of sin is coming to a close. Now is the time to get it right because when the trumpet sounds, if you are not through with sin, you will not make it on the first call.
Many people observed that the way the Supreme Court ruled on Obamacare that the justices would do the same on SSM.
Rule in favor of Obama.
They were right.
The legacy of this president is secure.
Homosexualiity and federal anarchy over the people.
But it doesn’t change what the true believers of the Lord Jesus Christ is to do.
We must still call homosexuality sin no matter what the highest man court in the land is.
Nebuchadnezzar is not through.
A statue will be erected and the music will be played.
As with the three Hebrew boys, we will not bow.
Man’s temporary fire cannot be compared to God’s eternal hell.
We will still pray. We will still preach righteousness, holiness, and the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Just as they sent a decree that all men must not pray to any god, Daniel still opened his window and prayed to the God above all gods. To the lion’s den he went. But the lions were not hungry. The God of heaven and earth protected him.
Folks, this is not the time to be fearful.
Psalm 91:5-6 says
“You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.”
Our job is still the same.
LGBT thinks it has won a tremendous victory.
The devil and his children thinks that they can roll the church over, which is next.
Persecution comes with the territory but our God is still in control when man is out of control.
There is no victory in sin. Sin will not win.
But here is the other side of the coin.
The perilous path that we are now on is clear. The days of America are coming to a close. This once great moral nation is now immoral. But there is still a light in the house of darkness. Where truth is lived and where the gospel is still the gospel of Jesus Christ, it doesn’t matter what the elite of LGBT does.
This ruling doesn’t change our job.
Will judgment fall on this nation?
Sound the alarm and be ready.
This is what must happen in the earth.
This didn’t catch God by surprise. He knew this day was coming before the world began. So neither should we be terrified. We need to be ready for what is to come.
As far as America is concerned, this is what happens when you vote for a president that has sin in his heart and the saints didn’t even perceive it. In particular, Black professed so called Christians that voted for Obama.
They never saw the sin in his messages and they’ve completely ignored the Bible.
They only saw skin color not sin color.
As far as the justices are concerned, it is no longer Black Robes Blind Justice.
It is Black Robes Of Darkness And Injustice.
Nonetheless, let’s stay focused. I leave you with this Scripture which I preached in Zion Baptist Church in Brooklyn NY as my trial sermon, at the start of the call of God on my life to preach 35 years ago.
The title of my trial sermon was “The Night IS Far Spent.”
Romans 13:11-14 “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand.
Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”
Let’s look at the money behind the sin of homosexuality.
Follow the money when you want to get at the truth of the matter.
Paul gave us these words in 1 Timothy 6:10a “For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil….”
When NYS legalized SSM, it turned into an economic windfall for generations to come.
From a respected source, the economics of SSM in NYS proves the fact that politics could care less about the Bible’s prohibition. But it also proves that it doesn’t care about the lives of those caught in the middle of political economics.
In essence, the real victims are those that practice homosexuality.
From a well respected source, here is the economic windfall just in NYS.
“The New York City Comptroller’s office issued an updated economic analysis in May 2009 finding that New York State’s economy could gain $210 million in the three years immediately following the legalization of marriage for same-sex couples.
According to Mayor Bloomberg, City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn, NYC & Company CEO George Fertitta and New York City Clerk Michael McSweeney, “same sex-marriages in New York City have generated an estimated $259 million in economic impact and $16 million in City revenues” in the first year after the enactment of the Marriage Equality Act.”
But that’s just NYS and NYC.
But in another blog, the question was asked regarding the economics should SSM become legal in all 50 states.
The staggering information could be read here.
The total economic revenue would be 2.5 billion dollars of extra income to this nation.
The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 6:24 that “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
Talk about hate language against the true believers of Christ.
Because sinners hate the Lord, they love (worship) money.
When people go to the gay bars, it’s revenue.
When they go to the hospital, seeking medical relief from STD’s, it’s revenue.
When they get SSM, married filing joint is in play. It’s revenue.
When they die, estate taxes. It’s revenue.
Is it any wonder that when a same sex couple walks into a cake shop that happens to have Christian convictions regarding the sin of homosexuality that when the cake shop owner refuses to provide service, it’s a two pronged attack?
First, to punish Christians for not bowing to the sin of homosexuality, and second, loss tax revenue to the county, state, and the federal government. Recouped after a judgment is rendered in severe penalties.
Weddings is big business but the medical costs of STDs is pretty high too.
Evidently, the god of money is being worshipped on the political level and quite frankly, the pawns of LGBT do not care because all they are interested in is their right to marry.
In the midst of their shame, they are looking for legitimacy and they care less about how much it will cost. So the politicians accommodate them without revealing the political intent of revenue.
Not to mention the hundreds of thousands of lawsuits that fill the pockets of lawyers with millions of dollars.
The real winners is the federal government, the state, the city or county, the medical field, and the attorneys.
The pawns of LGBT get stuck with the medical bills, the wedding bills, the attorney bills, the estate tax bills, the marriage tax bills, and should they not repent, as with other sinners that commit adultery, fornication, and bisexuality, judgment from God.
Then there’s the homosexual parades throughout the country and around the world.
The revenue is staggering.
But there is one bill that sinners do not have to pay. The only thing that can be done is to accept it by faith and walk away from sin. This bill was not paid with money but with sinless blood.
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Being justified FREELY by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” Romans 3:23-24
Jesus paid that judgment bill on the cross over 2000 years ago and should you accept it, it is free of charge.
But there is a “sell by date.”
The coming of the Lord, or the date of your death. Which ever comes first.
So now we know what is behind the drive for same sex marriage.
Now this is not going to sit well with those that believe that they are not pawns in this epic battle for rights.
Spiritually speaking we know that when sin is established in the land, the cost is greater.
Mind you that 2.5 billion dollars is not going to put a dent in the 18 trillion dollar debt that the federal government has.
But this is just the up front revenue.
What about the criminal element of revenue?
It’s also in the billions of dollars.
Human trafficking, male prostitution. Drugs. Alcohol.
The black hole of sexual sins has its own revenue that perhaps can’t really be counted. Perhaps, estimated. But not calculated to the dollar.
Crime is an enterprise too.
Could it be possible that we may see protests on a scale of riots in the past should the SCOTUS rule against the elite of LGBT?
Then again, there may be no riots at all. You never know. But we can expect major protests throughout the country.
It would be something for the elite of LGBT to sponsor riots. Just imagine people destroying church property, acts of vandalism, maybe even violence against pastors or believers that stand on the Word of God against homosexuality.
In a nut shell, the SCOTUS blog gives us a synopsis of the case brought before the Justices.
1) Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex?
2) Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-state?”
Riots are nothing new to the Body of Christ.
If you go to the book of Acts or Acts of the Apostles, you will see opposition almost every time the gospel was preached. In Acts 19, we see that the power of the gospel had such an affect on people that they brought out their books on sorcery to be burned.
The gospel had so much power in the city of Ephesus that it disrupted their economy.
No one wanted to buy a statue of Diana of the Ephesians any more.
The whole city assembled and shouted one phrase for 2 hours.
“Great Is Diana Of The Ephesians!!!”
This is found in Acts 19:34.
They will shout epitaphs, slurs, and talk about hate language from the ones that accuse us of hate language.
Could it be possible that they could send roving teams of homosexuals to houses of worship, known for standing against homosexuality and protest while performing lewd acts? In fact, be prepared for them to come right into the house of worship and same sex kiss or perform other lewd acts during praise and worship or at the preaching of the Word.
Could it be possible that they would do this on Sunday? Well, in NYC after governor Cuomo and the state legislation approved SSM around June 24, 2011, mayor Bloomberg opened up the Municipal building to accommodate marriage licenses for same sex couples on Sunday.
Over a year later around October 22, 2012, Hurricane Sandy hit the area.
You can’t make this up.
It’s been done before. There is no question that it may be done again.
I have no doubt about it. They will be bold. We must be just as bold.
The power of God was in the vicinity of the man dwelling in the tombs.
This will be our opportunity to minister to them the power of God for them to be delivered.
That’s what I offer when I’m open air street preaching. That people can be delivered from the power of darkness in the name of Jesus because “He whom the Son sets free is free indeed.” And “Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.”
What is the proper Christian response to those that would come and protest in front of your house of worship?
If the justices rule conservatively, true believers should not be giddy. In fact, we should be planning against the next round of attacks that will come. Yes, praise God, but let’s look ahead and be prepared.
We should be aware that they already have plans in the event that the justices rule in our favor.
We must remember that the devil and his children will never stop until the church is in conformity to sin and destroyed completely. The final goal is not SSM. Neither is the final goal to Constitutionalize homosexuality.
The end game goal is to rid the church from off the face of the earth.
Over the last few years, we have seen where there is no continuation of the light in the church, darkness assumes the property. For instance, when a place of worship is no longer used, it’s turned into a place for worldly use. Condo’s, playhouses, and other uses than it’s original purpose.
It is a dramatic sign that when there is no continuation of prayer and evangelism, there can be no continuation of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. It all begins when we fail to pray and evangelize. Just like if a family in the natural is to continue, if that family has no more births in the family, that family line discontinues.
So it is with the local church. If there is no new life in the house, there is a good chance that it will die. If that place is infiltrated with sin and there is no repentance, the Book of Revelation, chapters 1-3 reveals what will happen to those churches that refuse to correct itself.
Here is our response should the justices rule in LGBT’s favor.
Matthew 5:11-12, 43-45
“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”
Paul admonishes us in Romans 12:14-21…
“Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble.
Do not be wise in your own opinion. Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him a drink;
For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Heaping coals of fire on his head sounds destructive, but I believe that even though vengeance belongs to the Lord, in you doing good to an enemy, it should burn in his mind that you love him just as the Lord does and that he, as a result of receiving good from you, would relent of the evil he intended to bring up on you.
However, there will be those that will curse you and even do physical harm to you. Be prepared.
We should never say things to bring hostility nor should we incite riots. However, the truth spoken in love will always bring offense.
Righteousness disturbs the peace of sin.
While we will always be remembered for our stand, it’s not going to be a nice neat package. However, we should not be known for doing evil because evil was done to us.
Jesus gave His disciples these Words in John 15:18-20, “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.”
Should I be confronted, I will want to dialogue with them. I do not intend to put myself in a position to cast my pearls before people that are bent on destroying that which is costly, and then they would turn to destroy me too. Neither will I compromise the Word of God.
The Word of God is non-negotiable. God is closed minded when it comes to sin, and every true believer must be too.
We want to offer the Savior to all sinners, remembering that we were once in the way of perversion too.
Getting into heated arguments for argument’s sake is a no win situation. You have to be discerning about who you want to dialogue with. If proponents and sympathizers are closed minded about their sin, there is no reason to dialogue at all. They refuse to budge and you must hold your ground on the Word of God.
But if there is a chance that they want to repent and give their life to the Lord, it’s an opportunity worth pursuing.
Earlier in the week many of us has seen information regarding the possible capitulation of Chick Fil A. That there were back room negotiations. That Chick Fil A caved in to LGBT demands in connection with building more Chick Fil A restaurants in Chicago if Chick Fil A concede to the following demands, such as they are to no longer donate to organizations that are anti gay.
Governor Mike Huckabee, as you know, encouraged many believers to go and support Chick Fil A for standing up to the pressures of the LGBT community after Mr. Dan Cathy stated his unequivocal support for traditional family values that are Bible based, that marriage is between one man and one woman.
The Chick Fil A Appreciation Day was far beyond successful.
It was a defining moment in American history.
And it is worthy to mention that no other franchise made 18 million plus dollars in one day, in a downturn economy.
This one day validated free speech, but more importantly, the right to speak and represent the Lord, the Word of God, and traditional marriage, in accordance with Genesis 2:24.
For the most part, it appears that many in the LGBT community vehemently disagreed and the political henchmen went as far as to say that they would block any attempt of Chick Fil A to expand their business because Chick Fil A stood against LGBT’s poisonous sin.
Believers and non believers, all across the United States gathered peacefully. Not to protest. Just to support a man who stuck by Biblical principles and values.
We thought that there was a major capitulation on Chick Fil A’s part. Here is what we’ve learned from the FB post of Governor Mike Huckabee….
“I talked earlier today personally with Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick Fil-A about the new reports that Chick Fil-A had capitulated to demands of the supporters of same sex marriage. This is not true. The company continues to focus on the fair treatment of all of its customers and employees, but to end confusion gave me this statement:
“There continues to be erroneous implications in the media that Chick-fil-A changed our practices and priorities in order to obtain permission for a new restaurant in Chicago. That is incorrect. Chick-fil-A made no such concessions, and we remain true to who we are and who we have been.”
From the onset, having learned a lesson, you wait until it plays itself out. But I was still confused. You see, David went by the brook and got five smooth stones. But David only used one with tremendous results. Then a little while later, in 2 Samuel 21, Goliath’s sons came up. Four.
One thing about giants and fighting. You must finish the job that you started. The four sons of Goliath were killed by David’s skilled fighting men. At this time, Goliath’s four sons are showing up and it is time for the church to finish the job.
I was taken aback by the fact that why capitulate so soon after a resounding victory.
But the statement above is encouraging.
So, someone is lying.
The Bible tells us that the devil is a liar and the father of lies; that there is no truth in him.
The Bible also says, “Let God be true and every man a liar.”
So, Jesus also said that “You are of your father, the devil…”
So if you are not a born again child of God, and when you talk, it’s not going to be the truth. It’s going to be lies.
Is Mr. Cathy a child of the devil or a child of God?
Based on what we have heard and have seen, he is a child of God and speaks the truth.
There is no reason for Mr. Cathy to turn his back on the God he professes to serve. And there is no reason for him to walk away from the statement of honoring traditional family values and traditional marriage. What is there to gain? A couple of stores in Chicago? For what? And deny the true God?
What is the eternal trade off?
Heaven and Hell.
We are living in an apostate time where believers are walking away from the Lord at record pace. And for Mr. Cathy to capitulate, we wouldn’t have been surprised because of the intimidation of the enemy. However, Mr. Cathy’s statement is encouraging but we also need to watch this for a little while to ensure that it sticks.
This presidential election is more than just what will happen in the next four years. It is about who you are serving.
A vote, in either direction, for either candidate is a revelation of the God or god you serve. And sadly, evangelicals and other Christians, God loves them, they will vote for a baby killing, sin of homosexuality affirming president.
You better be.
We must start honoring the Word of God according to righteousness.
Why be against God and for sin? Are you mad? Have you lost your ever living mind?
It’s like watching a movie again and you are told to run….
We all know you may not be smart enough to run, so we might as well watch you get crushed.
With Mitt Romney, he is a Mormon.
Mormons by definition is a cult and not a part of main stream Christianity.
And sadly as well as pathetically, evangelicals are blind enough to put aside the stand on the Word of God for political purposes.
For the first time in Presidential elections, a protestant will not be on either ticket.
So the news of caving in was rather shocking, to say the least.
And that’s why we were so shocked. People that run from the Lord and His Word are cowards. You have to learn to make a stand when it’s unpopular to do so for fear of ridicule from the world.
If Mr. Cathy capitulated, then we need to sever ties and move on, and not look back and become a pillar of salt.
With opponents that hate God, the Word of God, and believers in Christ, it is expected for them to lie, cheat, steal, misquote, abuse Scripture, manipulate the law, persecute, perjure, kill, murder, slander, intimidate with schoolyard bully tactics, and create any sort of distortion to perpetuate and advance the sin of homosexuality.
Every bully has a bully waiting.
Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed with fire and brimstone, rained down from heaven.
The Bible tells us in Revelation 21:8….
“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolators, and ALL LIARS shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone (the same substance used to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah), which is the second death.”
So whoever is the liar, will have their part.
We will continue to watch for any late breaking developments.
