So the Boy Scouts of America capitulated.
Pastor Darren Butler of The International Good News Fellowship in New York called it The Gay Scouts Of America.
Other pastors have called it this too so the concurrence is there.
We must understand that homosexuality carries perverted feminine traits that, unfortunately is a suppression or outright removal of the masculinity that makes a man a man given by God. Homosexuals are zapped of their masculinity when they submit themselves to perversion.
When young boys are just entering into puberty and their masculinity is just about to emerge, it is a critical point in their lives where they will go in either direction. Male or homosexual male. The anatomy of a male is forever designed to define which gender he will be. There is no question about it. When perverted thoughts enter the mind, males at the age of puberty will be pulled to the repulsive activities of perverted sex.
Any way the devil and LGBT can, this agenda of ruining the future of males is a disturbing trend that will reduce available men for available women. LGBT is taking the attack into areas that is alarming and until there is a constant vigilance to expose what the devil is doing, we will see a further erosion of the viability of the family.
One man. one woman. One family.
On the other side, with females desiring to be males, there is a confusion of gender identity. The roles of genders is swapped in perversion. When a woman attempts to act masculine, just like when a man attempts to act feminine, it is perversion.
Only the Lord and His Word of grace can restore a person caught in the web of false gender identification and place them back to His original intent, in holiness.
The whole concept of gender misidentification if for perverted purposes only. What matters at the end of all sex is the orgasm. The means to achieve orgasm is based on a person’s sexual preference but orgasm is the same.
As a side note, women need to stop treating men with feminine traits like women. I receive this insight from Pastor DL Foster of Witness Freedom Ministries in Georgia.
Pastor DL Foster said it powerfully. Words to the effect that women need to stop cuddling to the feminine spirit prevalent in male homosexuals. Stroking them and talking to them like they are females.
We are seeing this carry over into the Boy Scouts where Scout leaders are scouting young boys for gender misidentification so as to indoctrinate them for a lifestyle bondage to the sin of homosexuality.
Now the directors of BSA still placed a ban on adult homosexuals but they allow gay homosexual youth to be a part of the Scouts.
This compromise has called for an exodus of Scouts that are practicing Mormons and Catholics. Protestant churches will have to make up their mind. And quickly.
For a godly pastor, it’s a no brainer.
Break away, and do not look back.
Just have your own church scouting organization. You can camp elsewhere and still get the great skills Scouting used to be known for. Well, what if they come to stop what you are doing or force you to surrender to their terms? You stop what you are doing and find a way around it. They think that they could stop God.
Last I checked, death can stop man but death couldn’t stop God from raising His Son.
Now LGBT will have merit badges for homosexuality.
You think it’s funny or do you think I am kidding?
Folks, the days of Lot are here and it looks like the apostasy is picking up steam. If you are not out for Jesus all the way, and have a heart for sin, just remember Lot’s wife. She looked back and turned into a pillar of salt.
Such as it is all across the board. People that you thought would never turn on Christ, are turning away without thinking or blinking an eye.
Men loved darkness rather than light.
Hell will be full of darkness and dark people.
When you go to church, look to the right and look to the left. That person that raise his or her hand last week to God in praise might walk away from Jesus next week.
As with Lot, the instruction remains as ordered. “DO NOT LOOK BACK!!!!”
Where does this leave the rest of the church?
It’s a no brainer. Most Christians today, those that profess to know Him, will not even talk about it because of the secret hidden lives of sin they are in themselves. Many of you will quote Matthew 7:1 and use it as an isolated text to attempt to keep the heat off of your sins. However, Luke 12:2 is ever before you. By the way, read the rest of Matthew 7:2-5.
Now, in my youth, I was once a cub scout and then a boy scout. In Brown Memorial Baptist Church in Brooklyn, NY. Never in my wildest dreams would I read about this capitulation, but here it is. If you are a pastor in any denomination and you have Girl and Boy Scouts, it’s time for you to make a decision. More than ever, we are seeing the world squeeze its noose around the necks of every American organization, far and wide. It doesn’t matter if your godly organization is inside the four walls where it is safe.
It’s astounding that 3% of the American population that are practicing homosexuals has so much power, but that’s what we are faced with because of an inept church that refuses to evangelize its community. Sin is safe in the house of God. Holiness is not safe in the house of God. Calling a person’s sin out will get you a lawsuit or worse, it may get you killed.
It’s been the devil’s mission to kill God. He tried and killed Jesus in His flesh to trap His spirit but it didn’t work. For God raised Him up and now, all power in His hands.
The church is becoming less of a “sanctuary” and more of a house of ill repute.
In fact, in some local churches, it’s an ought right bath/whore house where open orgies and immoral group sex takes place with impunity.
The term sanctuary is a place where government was once off limits. Now, the overreaching power of government is inside the church.
The reason is simple.
When the preaching of righteousness reaches inside the bedrooms of perversion, the devil has set out an audaciously bold plan to hurt the people of God by invading the sanctuary. When he comes inside the sanctuary and perverts it, the original intent of the sanctuary now becomes the devil’s domain and the people of God will no longer have a place of protection.
This has the makings of pushing the people from the houses of worship to the underground. As I was preaching my message on Sunday, May 19, the Lord brought to my attention that the underground church in China, in some places, they have Bibles smuggled to them. In other places of the underground church, they only had one page from a Bible to preach from. This was years ago, but if the church in America doesn’t wake up to what is happening in America, we may be faced with the same situation.
Would you and I survive with no Bible, or a page? You better memorize the Bible. That’s what you are supposed to do anyway.
“Your Word have I hidden in my heart that I might not sin against you.”
There is no question that the hidden powers behind all of this is steering the politics of this nation against the people in the church. The power behind America used to be in the hands of the people, however, because people have become more corrupt on the level of the sinners of Noah’s day, we are seeing the systematic decaying of a once great nation.
If you look at history, you will see that all powers that come and go had a two hundred year limit. The United States, at age 236, has experienced 36 years of grace. Why? Because people recognized that when something traumatic happens in the nation, people quickly repented.
It is not so today. Repentance is an admission of guilt. True to arrogant Americans, guilt is something that we will never admit.
“Pride comes before destruction and a haughty spirit before the fall.”
All across America, you may see a sign that says…..“We will bounce back.”
You will hear speeches like…….“You will come back.”
Folks, look at your country and ask yourself a question.
Come back or bounce back to what?
If God is not in the comeback or bounce back, you are on your own.
For the first time in history, we have a homosexuality and abortion affirming president. We have a professed homosexual who happens to be a professional sports player. LGBT is invading every area except where the line is held and where the battle to stay pure remains impenetrable for the time being. The WNBA is known to have lesbians all in their ranks. The Girl Scouts, at this time is selling cookies with the proceeds going to Klanned Abortionhood. There is no doubt in my mind that lesbians are in their organization, it’s just that they are keeping it under wraps for the time being.
The tentacles of darkness has already reached in the church. For as long as anyone could remember, practicing homosexuals and perverted preachers have played and preached in the church for decades.
One by one, we are seeing what once used to be safe places for children become a battle ground for souls. At this point, no where is safe. But this didn’t catch God by surprise.
We must remain vigilant and remind ourselves that God is still God. No matter who is next to fall, we must remain watchful in all things. We must endure hardship. We must do the work of an evangelist. We must make full proof of our ministry. We are still here and the Lord hasn’t returned yet. We could either cry over another organization that fell victim to the winds of compromise, or we can continue to fight the good fight of faith, and lay hold on eternal life.
It’s not over. It’s not finished. It’s not ending. Not by a long shot.
Expect more of the elite, shadow government to take down more organizations but they can’t have my heart. They might be able to make man made laws to shut down organized resistance, but they can’t have my heart. For inside my heart dwells the Greater One. Inside my heart is the Word of God, firmly planted. Therefore, as Paul admonished…..
“Be steadfast immovable. Always abounding in the word of the Lord. For your labor is not in vain, says the Lord.”
So far, we’ve covered 5 of the 10 Deadly Sins Of Leaders Involved In Secret Sexual Sins.
#5. Pride and Arrogance.
#4. Failure To Take Heed.
#3. Compromise And Conviction.
#2. Candid Camera.
And the first one….
No Real Relationship With The Lord.
So here we are with #6, Deliberate Avoidance Of Confrontation.
In one way or another, we all avoid the place where a good spanking is coming for us. As kids growing up, we want to do our thing and get away with it. We know that sooner or later, it will catch up to us, and like clock work, the dinner bell of judgment comes.
The Lord confronted the sins of David by sending the prophet Nathan. The Lord Jesus met the woman at Jacob’s well. The Lord Jesus had a woman caught in the act of adultery brought to her. The Lord confronted Cain concerning the murder of Abel.
It is apparent that the discovery of a secret is the most feared aspect of Secret Sexual Sins.
Notice what the Lord Jesus said in John 3:19-21….
“And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
Notice what Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 5:4
“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.”
When Paul speaks of those that sleep at night and get drunk at night, and when the Lord said, men loved darkness rather than light,” it is a clear indication that concealment depicts secrecy.
When you want to commit sin, it’s the works of darkness that gives you the false sense of security that you can get away with it. But the reality is that works of darkness are done in the dark. It depicts the sinister nature of a person bent on sinning against the Lord. We must remember that the Psalmist in Psalm 139, said of the Lord that “the night and the day are both alike to You.”
In other words, God doesn’t care if you believe that you can hide under the cloak or cover of darkness. He can still see you. Sometimes, we act like He doesn’t see us.
Remember, sin is an act of defiance against the known will of God.
Now look at what Paul said in Ephesians 5:11-13…
“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.”
The intent of light is to expose the secrets of darkness. Confrontation is designed to shed light on what we may be doing in secret so we could avoid more judgment. Confrontation is part of the “chastisement of the Lord” (see Hebrews 12:4-17). If the Lord didn’t love you, He wouldn’t bother to shed any of His light on what you are doing in secret. He would let you do what you do and still judge you, based on His righteousness.
When you are hiding something, you have no confidence before the Lord, and no confidence before men. However, we must never allow such confidence to take us over into the area of pride, and false humility. As Paul admonished, “Take heed, lest we fall.”
John, the beloved apostle of the Lamb said these words in 1 John 3:19-22…
“And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him. For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.”
When you do not have confidence, you hide. Just like Adam and Eve did when the Lord came to confront their sin.
The Lord already knew they had sin but as a loving Father, He was not going to let what they did go.
It must be confronted.
I thought that confrontation takes place when a person sits down with another individual to delve into their lives. Sort of like, spill your guts and tell me everything that is going on in you, and if I find anything, I will lay you out. In other places, this may not be the case where consent is given. However, when it comes to discovery, sometimes, this doesn’t work because of fear. Even when there is nothing at all to discover, the fear is sometimes too much to overcome.
This kind of discovery tactic intimidates everyone. Little do we realize that this is the fear of God at work. Besides, God is more interested in the heart coming to Him than sitting down and digging up a person’s hidden secrets. Do not get me wrong. The Lord will resort to this when your sins are blatant and you show no serious indication that you will relent. When it comes to an individual bent on sexually sinning anyway, sometimes, truthfulness and honesty is a fleeting thing.
Some men and women are great liars. That’s what hypocrites do so well. They play the part of another so convincingly that to detect who they really are is almost impossible. However, it doesn’t matter what role you play before the Lord because He is God. He is omniscient. Even when the Lord confronted Cain, Cain was determined to kill Abel no matter what God said.
Cain was already in the depraved indifference state of mind. In other words, he didn’t care that the Lord said something to him. That’s the way it was with me. I didn’t care about what the Lord said. My sin was more important than the Word of God. My sin was more important than my relationship with God. My sin was more important than my love for my wife and daughter.
Sin’s acronym is Selfish Individual Needs.
This is not the way that every person should order their lives. To attempt to pattern after something that may not work for you, only invites future shipwrecks. However, in living before God, we are to walk “blameless unto the coming of the Lord.”
The key phrase is “the coming of the Lord.”
It is clear that everyone will not be ready at the coming of the Lord. The point of blameless is to be ready when He comes. Blameless is the only position of readiness. You cannot commit sin and be ready for the coming of the Lord. When the Lord confronts you about any sin, it is so that you would enter into repentance, receive forgiveness, and from that point, learn to walk blameless before the Lord.
I often thought….what would happen if I am watching porn and masturbating. Would the Lord accept me into His kingdom? Am I walking blameless? Am I walking in the light as He is in the light? Am I in fellowship with the Father through His Son, the Lord Jesus? Am I like the five wise virgins or am I like the five foolish virgins?
When it comes to confrontation, it may come in many forms. The Lord would send people in your path to distract you from making provision to fulfill the lusts of the flesh. The Lord may have you switch, unknowingly, radio stations to hear an important message from Him. Confrontation comes is various ways, designed to keep us off balance.
Off balance in the sense that you do not know when confrontation will come. Unpredictability has the potential of keeping a person honest. Then again, unpredictability of confrontation is no incentive at all for some bent on not being blameless before the Lord. Nonetheless, confrontation is there to protect us from impending judgment. Especially when we are entertaining the thought to cross the line we said to ourselves that we wouldn’t dare cross.
Finally, in Dr. Mark Laaser’s book on Healing The Wounds Of Sexual Addiction, I believe he talked about a story about a married, father of children pastor that robbed banks to feed his sexual addiction habits of porn, masturbation, strip clubs, Internet porn, and prostitutes. At the end, he was tried and convicted of armed robbery and served time. He lost his pastorate, obviously, and he hurt his family and children. At the pinnacle of this were layers of neglect.
The intentional disregard for the confronting power of God to save him from this pinnacle event.
When we refuse to even consider that the Lord is speaking to us in His still small voice, a much distinguishing, loud, impossible to ignore voice speaks to us. It could be that when we are about to cross a line, the voice of the Lord comes when the police comes. The voice of the Lord comes when the judge imposes a sentence for an avoidable crime. The voice of the Lord comes loud and clear when an STD of an incurable nature comes.
Yes, the voice of the Lord comes in many ways but it is prudent to listen to the voice of the Lord when we are still tender in our hearts and minds. The Lord knows how to salvage the unsalvageable. The Lord knows how to redeem the unredeemable. The Lord knows how to take a broken life, pieces all over the place, and one by one, put our lives back together again.
When the confrontation comes, let’s not run, but let’s embrace it.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.”
Paul shared these words in Romans chapter one. These powerful words indicate that he may or may not have been tempted to be quiet or to be ashamed about the power of God exhibited in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
A boldness came over him because he remembered what happened to him on the road to Damascus.
The Light that was brighter than the noon day sun shown around him. This Light was Jesus.
John, the apostle of the Lamb reminded us about this Light in chapter one of the gospel of John. “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John also quoted Jesus saying, “I am the Light of the world.” John reminded us again about the Light in his first general epistle, “that God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.”
John reminds us of the Light in Revelation chapter one when John said, “”and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength,” and finally in Revelation chapter 22, “They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. There shall be no night there; They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.”
Paul remembered this experienced because he observed the darkness coming upon the whole earth.
Sometimes shame can cause a person to back down, however, Paul chose not to back down but to stand firm.
Paul remembered on that road these words,
“to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those that are sanctified by faith in Me.”
After all, this is about bring many people from the place of darkness and the only thing that could do it is the light of the glorious gospel.
This country, the United States of America is in darkness because the church allowed darkness to enter their hearts. The place where the darkness entered is the media. All perversion of the devil is broadcast in some form, by way of our TV’s. It’s destructive power influences like no other. When people desire darkness, it is now broadcast to our phones and other devices. We can view anything and not have to wait until we arrive at home to view it.
Today, brother Milton Charles Barnes shared a message by Dr. Myles Monroe about a leadership conference evidently held in the Bahamas, at his local church on a message “Transforming Society.”
Being agents of change. If you are ready to be an agent of change, click the link below, but if you need an example of an agent of change, wait till you click the link at the end of this blog.
Here is the link to that message.
This message underscores the reason why the American church is under the spell and influence of LGBT.
The world and some segments of the church is hypnotized and under great spell of the seducing spirits and doctrine of devils.
I’ve often wondered why we are ineffective as a church and it is found in the media. We are so drunk with the world that we can’t hear the Word of God. When the truth is spoken, there is considerable resistance to the known will of God. We don’t stand a chance to operate in the power of God on the level of the early church because they didn’t have these distractions. We are so engulfed with the affairs of the world that we are the most ineffective bunch of Christians the world has ever seen.
Even in Prevailing Word Ministries, the work the Lord led me to start, we are seeing major changes but we are also seeing major resistance against the power of the gospel inside and outside the local church. If the church would see that the damaging affects of TV is at the root of ineffective Christ like living, we would pull the plug on TV.
Little did we know that we would watch the erosion of morals. From “Ricky” and “Lucy” sleeping in separate beds when “I Love Lucy” was produced, to all forms of lewd acts on TV, and movie screens. What was once unacceptable is now normal. The church has moved from dictating morals by powerful preaching and living of the Word of God to inviting lewdness to come directly into the house of the Lord.
An example of this is found in GCMWatch’s recent blog
Click the link below to read about lewdness in the church.
But it doesn’t matter. We cannot back down now. We have to push the Word of God regardless of the hour we are in. Regardless of the enemies arrayed against us. The comfort zone of the child of God is no longer safe. The persecution is here. We cannot retreat into the house of the Lord. We must advance the cause of the gospel of Jesus Christ no matter what.
We cannot back down now.
As hurt as most people will be, I cannot back down from preaching the purest form of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I don’t care what is lost except that I can’t do without truth. Truth must not be lost. We can’t be afraid to tell people inside and outside the church the truth of the gospel. The moment we are afraid to lose is a moment that we lose it all. God is about truth and if people cannot accept the truth, then the church is not the pillar and the ground of truth.
Sexual immorality has decimated the church. Preachers and believers are so drunk with sex that we do not know what it means to be intimate with the Lord. We are not paying attention to what is happening outside and inside the church. We have permitted lewdness to have free course. We bring in the sin only to let sin off the hook instead of killing it. Now mind you, Jesus was our propitiation. He became the appeasing sacrifice so that we can be free of the power and guilt of sin.
If we lose this element of truth in the church, then sin will reign without prohibition.
If the church fails to preach against sin and provide the love of the Father as the only way out of sin, we are no better than a strip joint. The church has become a strip joint where perversion is permitted without question. The church has become a whore house where the Lord had to depart because for Him to stay, no one would survive His presence.
In the days ahead, we will see more persecution. I recently observed a video of a street preacher in Toronto, Canada, preaching under a tremendous anointing. And people were resistant to the power of the gospel. It is dark in Canada. The spirit of darkness has set up rule in Canada. So much so that a demon possessed man warned this young street preacher that he would unleash darkness over the whole face of the area.
At the conclusion of the video, the last video the demon’s promise was somewhat fulfilled. This young street preacher preached the gospel right in the middle of an LGBT parade, surrounded by LGBT people. The light came on and the devil, who was perhaps a ruler of the darkness of this world, personally came to check that light.
You can click to see this brother in action. Please be advised. Vulgar language is used, discretion is advised.
A special thanks to Sister Vanessa Olszen, a FB friend in the Lord for sharing this video with us.
But how many of you know that the darkness cannot comprehend the light?
This from of darkness is in the church. It is not attacking the church. It is not invading the church. This form of darkness is in the church. The only way to deal with this darkness is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, cast out devils that are in people in the streets, and lead people to Christ in the backyard of the devil.
At the same time, in our local assemblies, we cannot back down from preaching the pure unadulterated Word of God. This assignment that the Lord gave me is beyond me. However, His grace is sufficient for me. In some places, it may cost you your life. However, we must remember that the Lord gave His life for us. He paid a powerful penalty for our redemption.
We cannot back down now.
Recently, I was ambushed by the ad section of FB (Facebook).
Everyone knows about the “Ad” section on FB. It’s the advertisement slide show. New friends to connect with as well as other interesting ads that connect with your taste constantly flashes before your eyes. These items are connected to your profile and preferences. With certain FB potential friends, sometimes they wear stuff (low cleavage items) to catch your attention. Some women that profess to know Jesus do it all the time.
While there are nasty male preachers and believers, there are nasty women that profess to know Jesus too.
Yes, ladies, it is a problem.
Femininity is a power that females use to attract men, whether men or women are married or not.
Females that profess to know the Lord should know better than to flaunt themselves but they do it anyway.
When these women are successful, and because of a lack of discipline, males and females engage in fornication and adultery. The male is called a fool and the female is called sexually immoral, whores, harlots, and seductresses.
It is just as bad with males.
Straight, as well as homosexuals advertise themselves too. For those that struggle with SSA (same sex attraction) issues, FB constantly reminds those that were delivered from the sin of homosexuality of the “fun.”
For those that were recently delivered from Secret Sexual Sins, the sins are still “fresh in their flesh.”
Many items pass through and every now and then, you will see things that should be flagged.
Paul said this, “For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.”
Love of money is what drives all kinds of evil.
When the Word of righteousness is brought to bear on unrighteousness, money will be used to stop someone from getting delivered by the power of God. That’s because when a person gets delivered, they will not spend any more money to watch porn, go to the bars, straight or gay, they will not buy condoms, no longer will they to go to the doctor to get treated for STDs, and abortion would not be an issue.
God broke the addiction which breaks the money chain, and that’s why they do incredible warfare to get you to return. This is the reason they hook little children early. In the food chain, they have to keep a supply of people willing to go to great lengths to have something fulfilled. The addictions, the desires, the false sense of satisfaction. All of these things are equated to keeping a person in the dark to commit dark acts of depraved indifference to themselves and to others to satisfy themselves.
In most cases, people are willing to spend money on satisfaction, knowing that they need to pay for rent, lights, gas, and other necessities of life. Hence, the reason behind the economic judgment on the church and the United States.
Pleasure comes before responsibility.
While fallen man knows the limits, as long as a man is willing to chase after certain things, the money chain will not be broken. It’s the theory of the predator in operation. You gotta stay addicted because I gotta live.
The moment you get delivered from the addiction, they will look for others to remain addicted, or they suffer.
Folks, I have chosen to let the world suffer.
I gotta stay saved and they can be saved too.
That’s why there is such a fight against righteousness.
Everything is connected. Drugs, alcohol, medicine, hospitals, clothing, cars, hotels and motels, make up, and food.
When you put up the Word of God, (not destructive criticism, there is a difference), someone will get offended because somewhere in the chain, the money is about to get cut off.
If you study the book of Acts, particularly the 19th chapter, the gospel came to the city of Ephesus. The city of Ephesus was a commerce area with a population of over 300,000. The coppersmiths were in business making statues of Diana and they were raking in the ducats.
Diana is a multi breasted idol distantly connected to the Asherah or Baal forms of worship. Infertility is connected to sexual immorality.
The coppersmiths were making money off of these perverted statues and the people brought their sorcery books and other forms of the occult to be burned. The revival was so powerful verse 20 revealed the outcome of a direct move of God.
“So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.”
At the end of the revival that Paul, Aquilla and Priscilla founded, and Timothy, later sent by Paul to be the First Bishop of Ephesus, the membership or people that regularly attended that church numbered over 100,000. John, the apostle of the Lamb and Mary, the mother of Jesus, were among members there.
According to tradition, the bones of Mary and John were discovered in the region. Also remember that John was exiled on the isle of Patmos and when he had a vision on the Lord’s day, he was given instructions by the Head of the church to give a letter to the messenger or pastor of the church at Ephesus.
Here’s what I wanted to get to.
The revenue was jeopardized as a result of the gospel being preached. Sales declined on occult books. Sales declined on spells to cast upon people to curse them or cause them to fall under a perverted spell. Sales declined on the purchase of Diana of the Ephesians. They all went to the theater. Paul, who wanted to enter the middle of the riot to preach, was kept from sealing the deal. I do not think Paul would have been harmed but then again, you never know. For two hours, the people shouted.
The gospel threatened their economy.
The effective preaching of the gospel caused a riot.
Ineffective preaching will not cause a riot.
No one will bother you but when you strike a cord, you will see them come at you because you are a threat to their economy.
On a different note, when truth comes, people act like little babies and cry to momma FB to block, remove, or close the accounts. Granted, I’ve said some things that definitely raised a few eyebrows, but not worthy of a block, removal, or closing of an account. There are other tactics that is utilized. Such as temporarily cutting off your account, freeze certain pages, eliminate the share button on certain items detrimental to cash-flow, and image dressing.
However, there are some ads that will not get blocked that come very close to violating obscenity laws. And the use of vulgar language is constantly seen on the social networks, but nothing is done to address it. However, put the Word of God up and God’s Word to the sinner is obscene and vulgar.
The ambush that took place was probably generated because of the articles that I post regarding Secret Sexual Sins and other related items.
When it comes to applying the Word of God in the world, you will draw much criticism from those that are not in the Body of Christ masquerading as bona fide believers and especially those that profess to be believers in the Body of Christ, but live in sin.
Sadly, those that profess to be believers and live below the level of Matthew 7:21-23 are the wayside people that Jesus spoke of in Luke 8:12 that let the devil steal the Word from their hearts, unless they believe.
Anyway, the ambush was salacious ads. One by one, of women. Naked, cleavage/scantily clad, and hand covering certain obvious parts.
Some of you that were delivered from the sin of homosexuality may have seen ads that are connected to the gay lifestyle like, gay cruises, bars, parades, and things of this nature.
Some people, including misguided, gullible children of God will not think nothing of it and tell you to just ignore it. Some will tell you that you are misguided, gullible, and into this stuff too much.
These are the same believers that really do not understand the wiles of the devil.
As a side note, this is true spiritual warfare when images are thrown at you and you have to exercise discipline not to yield to these temptations.
You intercessory prayer folks that border on space cadets think that you understand spiritual warfare and cry out to the principalities and powers, and command them to come down, in Jesus’ name. There is no Scriptural evidence of the Lord Jesus ever carrying out that level of warfare you claim to talk about. The devils He cast out were in people. Within the safe confines of the four walls, many claim to chase demons out of cities. Yet, the demons remain at large in the people on the street corner.
We think that prayer changes things. Wrong! It’s the God that answers prayer in accordance with His will that changes things. it’s time to dispel the myth of non Biblically unsubstantiated empowerment.
Anyway, true spiritual warfare is when you have been inundated with things that pull on your flesh. You resist by renewing the mind with the Word of God. You resist by prayer. You resist by praise. You resist by turning off the Internet, shutting down FB, and cut off the avenues of demonic attack.
You must remember, if you keep yourself, it is not by walking through the fire. It is by keeping away from the fire.
Jesus prayed, “…and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.”
Paul said, “Avoid the very appearance of evil.” And “Flee fornication.”
You go to the movie theaters and the trailers are full of salacious ads. Some of you have already made up your minds to go see that movie, not realizing that the devil is preaching to you. The devil is ministering to you the word of death. The devil is ministering to you the very things that pull on your flesh and mind.
Brothers are seduced and they file every feminine body part to fantasize and masturbate off of later.
So it is with these ads that come at me. I am firmly aware of the intent and I identify it as a clear and present danger to the sanctification and holiness of God established in me by the grace of God.
You must recognize quickly that the enemy will not let you off the hook when you claim to be delivered. You must be able to run like Joseph. No man can stand where he once was conquered. We must utilize every means of escape according to 1 Corinthians 10:13.
I am not going to leave nothing to chance. When you do, that is a position of pride that the enemy was waiting on. When you think that you can handle it, this is where you are the most vulnerable. Flee and avoid is the position of strength. Stay and camp is the position of weakness. Grace works when we flee and avoid. Foolishness works when we stay and camp.
Therefore, the ads targeted against the righteous is not just harassment. It is a vulgar form of perversion to stop righteousness from destroying their bottom line at your expense. It is also a double whammy. It is also designed to pull on your flesh to get you back in the dark world of Secret Sexual Sins. Take a good look at certain news on the Internet, and you you will see the same thing.
Somewhere on that page, there will be a woman or a man to sexually attract your attention.
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations (reasonings) and every high thing (salacious pictures) that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
Facebook makes a living on ads, but you have to be careful, child of God.
Luis Leon, Episcopal Priest, Will Deliver Obama’s Inauguration Benediction, Replacing Louie Giglio
Many of you are saying that he is just giving a benediction. It will be a benediction that God will not hear. The prayer may have well been addressed to the devil himself.
Psalm 66:18 says, “If I regard iniquity in my heart the Lord will not hear me.”
You cannot practice sin and practice righteousness at the same time. This is the very thing that many preachers and believers know based on the Word of God. You cannot live in sin and expect God to accept you in the condition of sin.
Here is what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23.
“Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!”
If you try to tell this to anyone in sin, they will tell you that you are full of hate, but here is the thing. You try to tell God to accept your condition unconditionally when the Lord sent His Son unconditionally to save you from the condition of sin you are in.
Notice what Paul said in Romans 5:18-21.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.”
You see, salvation’s purpose is to change your heart.
“The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked,” Jeremiah 17:9 tells us.
It’s the condition of the heart that the Lord is after, but man refuses to have his heart changed so they reinvent everything that God initially instituted so that what man makes conforms to his own dark heart.
There is a clear intention to weaken the church by finding weak willed leaders to accept sin in the church. From bisexual pastors to perverted bishops that are open homosexuals. They want to have God but they do not want His Word of righteousness and true holiness.
So there is a double effort to reduce the pillar of truth into a pile of rubble while erecting a “church” according to their liking. This church must have teeth. The State Church of LGBT must have governmental power to exist. That’s why there has been a concerted effort to engage in politics, rewrite Civil Rights, suppress the truth, silence the truth through the legislative and judicial process, and infiltrate political power by being elected into office.
A man once said that the most powerful preachers were Black. There is no question that there are many preachers across the globe that are not African descent are just as powerful. There is no question in my mind that some of the greatest preachers also were Anglo Saxon and other races. If you look at African history, many firsts were achieved.
However, we see that in some African American preachers today, there is an unwillingness to confront the issues of our day from a Biblical perspective. We find that many are comfortable talking about issues that would better our people (prosperity gospel, motivational messages, coaching) but we fail to realize that sin is detrimental to any race.
Proverbs 14:34 says,
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”
As Paul said, “Woe (doomed) is me if I PREACH not the gospel.”
I’m not called to motivate or coach. When God spoke to me and called me into the ministry, He called me to PREACH!
Sadly, some have accepted the sin of homosexuality and relegated it to Civil Rights. Sin and Civil Rights are two separate issues. The Blood of Jesus has removed sin. Man must accept his race and learn to be mindful that no matter what your race is, the love of Jesus bridges the gap.
Some African American pastors are not quick to speak against sin but very quick to deal with race issues.
Many have abandoned the call of God to enter into the political arena. The one thing that helps people is to have a change of heart that the gospel of Jesus Christ provides through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. We preachers have come to find out that not many people want to turn from sin and sometimes, discouragement sets in and such discouragement drives us from the pulpit.
In most cases, it drives many to Secret Sexual Sins to appease the lack of satisfaction in making a gospel difference in people’s lives. People are hard to minister to because of a variety of issues and challenges that many people face. We pastors tend to forget that we cannot fix everything and we cannot change anybody.
With this, a vacuum of power and influence was left wide open. In many of our White denominations, many have forsaken the way of the Lord. Intellectually, they have reasoned that God has changed and are now incorporating LGBT principles in their churches. Joseph Ward calls it, “progressive.”
GCMWatch.com, a while back sounded the alarm about gay denominations emerging.
In progressive minded church people and leaders, LGBT has found weak willed leaders that became sympathetic to the sin of homosexuality. Some that resist are called bigots, racists, discriminant, and other racial slurs that African Americans are accustomed to use when confronted with racist people.
Predominantly, and sadly, White homosexual folks have taken on our plight. As I would say, put my skin on for one split second and then you will know what true racism is all about.
There is a difference between sin and skin.
One person put it like this.
“When I walk outside, I did not come out of the closet another color. I walk out as a Black man. You do not have to ask me about my “orientation” of skin color. When I walk out that door, you can easily see, without a shadow of doubt, that I am a Black man. But when you need to know if I am straight or gay, you have to ask because the pigmentation of my skin generally tells you my ethnicity. My skin color doesn’t tell you anything about my sexuality.”
In a nutshell, Joseph Ward said that “Christians are consistently becoming more visible advocates for full inclusion of our LGBT neighbors.”
I and many other true believers have not become one because of our immoveable stand on the standard of the Word of God. Moving from the Word of God is non-negotiable according to James 4:4 and 1 John 2:15-17. We will be glad to lead you to The Lord, but I will not let you lead me from my Lord and Savior. The progressive thinking of sinners always lead people astray and away from The Lord to commit perverse acts that is prohibited in Scripture.
It’s amazing that people want to change God instead of being changed by God. They always claim that God is wrong and behind the times, when people in their reprobate minds are wrong and behind the times.
Catch up to the way God thinks.
Joseph Ward also said, Christianity does not have to be exclusive of LGBT equality, and when it is, people are leaving the church.”
He really wanted to say Christ does not have to be exclusive…
You can’t make this stuff up. LGBT, you can’t have the righteousness of God and be in the condition of sin. As Jesus said, “You must be born again!”
Therefore, we who believe the written inerrant Word of God dare not progress from the God who gave it.

Washington National Cathedral now performs same sex marriages. In the African American churches, gay bishops are emerging in record numbers. One by one, we are seeing catholicism enter the ranks of African American churches to give these bishops legitimacy in ministry.
However, we all know that God is not pleased and God never approved such things according to Leviticus 18:22, Malachi 3:6, and Romans 1:18-32.
They do not see that the place at the highest political table is just a token. The real power behind the White House has controlled what we see.
It is amazing that only 2% of the American population is homosexual, yet, they are able to wield power as if they are a massive majority that dares to be challenged. It reminds me of the Wizard of Oz where a short man behind the curtain is so insecure of himself that he needs loudspeakers, smoke, and people fearful of him to be accepted.
Such as it is with LGBT. They want to be able to steamroll their way into the political system, overthrow the faith of many, and establish their own State Church. These are telltale signs of the end of a superpower. Just look at the book of Daniel and every major dominating power rose and comes to an end.
Psalm 75:6-10 says this….
“For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, and exalts another.
For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is fully mixed, and He pours it out; surely its dregs shall all the wicked of the earth drain and drink down.
But I will declare forever, I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. All the horns of the wicked I will also cut off, but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
Notice also what Paul said in Acts 17:24-31.
“God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.
And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said,
For we are also His offspring. Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising.
Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
Take a good look at the Inauguration. Babylon is emerging. In order for a new world order to emerge, a superpower must decline.
Spiritually, morally, economically, technologically, educationally, and militarily.
While some states are holding out and establishing their hold against same sex marriages, we are seeing LGBT impose their end around game. If you think that the incident at Sandy Hook High School is just an isolated incident, it sparked outrage regarding guns in the US. So much so that many in political circles desire to change the 2nd Amendment.
The founding fathers, in their wisdom saw that if you take the weapons, you rule the people with an iron rod. Such as it was with Germany in 1938. Such as it is in North Korea. When a people have no weapons to defend themselves, it is inevitable that the people will be ruled with an iron fist.
The founding fathers knew that one day America would attempt to make changes in the Constitution and they set a very high bar to prevent drastic changes from taking place easily. However, if you see them make changes in the Constitution, then it is very easy to set it aside. That’s why when you see a usurping of a document that exceeds the wisdom of men today, it’s because Babylon is sure to emerge.
All of these things are interconnected because this is the end times.
So do not be surprised when the State Church of LGBT gets a stronghold in the United Staes.
Just be ready as Jesus said, “For your redemption draws nears.”
