Since exposing his pornography habits on Oprah a few years ago, we see that a “gospel artist” will do anything to make themselves bigger than life.
We all thought that Kirk was doing a good thing in revealing to the world that he had a pornography habit.
A bad mistake.
As Paul said about taking personal issues before the world to be judged, the principle is to be applied. We can’t lay before the world our issues because the world has no moral standard to judge a child of God by. And the world has no power to help a person who may be a sex addict to be delivered.
As one person puts it in Dr. Michael Brown’s book “A Queer Thing Happened To America,” “they are trying to get God delivered.”
The world, by way of the devil, is trying to convert God and the holy saints of God.
As I have stated, no one watches porn and not act out in masturbation, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, or bisexuality.
It’s no reason not to believe that Kirk Franklin has involvement in masturbation; masturbation is considered by some to be the beginning stages of homosexuality. And if my memory serves correct, I don’t think Kirk mentioned anything about masturbation when he revealed his porn habits to Oprah.
I could be wrong.
Plausible as well as controversial as this later statement is, we all know that in porn movies and instruction videos on masturbation, it is the last and most difficult habit to break. That’s why men and women who practice masturbation will reason, wrestle, and fight anyone to keep this Secret Sexual Sin at all costs.
If you love masturbation more than the Lord, your relationship with Jesus is questionable at best. To love anything more than the Lord is an indictment on your holiness. Having a form of godliness but denying its power (see 2 Timothy 3:5).
In fact, if you are bound to masturbation, that is, you can’t stop it, you are a slave to your lust to fulfill the desires of the flesh through solo sex (see John 8:32-36 and Romans 6:15-23).
The demons behind porn are some of the strongest ever. Sexual immorality is the one thing that few escape from. Obviously, the highest levels of demon power are operating in the sin of homosexuality and the abortion industry as far as child sacrifice is concerned.
The strongholds of this nature that are permitted to be built in the lives of people affects families, churches (rogue and righteous), communities, politics, and the economy.
We all know that when you go against homosexuality, you are going to a fight that may cost you.
Every time we see a gospel artist come out in favor of homosexuality and make the righteous church out to be the bad guy, we know that this play in the devil’s playbook came from satan himself from the Garden.
Kirk is not the first to claim to speak for the righteous church about “apologizing” to homosexuals. Granted, name calling is beneath a true child of God, but those that stand for righteousness according to the Scriptures have nothing to apologize for.
The name calling comes from intolerant of righteousness, sinful, disgusting practitioners of homosexuality to deflect the truth about their indefensible sin.
It would be in the Garden that the devil makes God out to be the bad guy and the devil out to be the good guy.
The people that do not know their Bibles will fall for this from Kirk because they are sympathetic to the sins of this world than they are to being obedient to God.
There is a reason behind their thinking.
Compulsive masturbation, if Kirk hasn’t brought it to a stop.
The love of sexual sin.
And then, there is Carlton Pearson who came to the rescue of Kirk Franklin.
There are a lot of professed believers that still do not believe that Carlton went off the deep end. In fact, many people believe that Carlton can still repent and come to the Lord.
The Scriptures on false teachers and prophets are clear.
That’s why I walk away from folk because where God is closed minded in the Scriptures regarding false teachers and prophets, we too must be closed minded. We can’t be like David who fasted and prayed all night long for a child, conceived by adultery and murder, to live when God already closed His mind about it.
When it comes to false teachers and prophets, 2 Peter 2, Jude, and when Jesus said about the Pharisees being blind and to leave them alone, we too must do the same.
Hebrews 6:4-8 “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame. For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.”
Leave them alone in the sense that they made a decision to walk away from the Lord. When they come out with their statements, we need to attack it and bring the correct Scriptures to bear on what they say.
Have you ever noticed that none of them bring the correct teachings of the Scriptures to bear with their statements? It’s all said on their reputation because they, over time, became believable to certain people according to Proverbs 14:15.
Men and women who have a following can’t say anything wrong. And if you dare bring the correct Scripture and apply it to what they have said, you are “touching God’s anointed.” You are putting your “mouth on the man of Gawd.”
Folks that are gullible for this stuff are the worst offenders of the Scriptures. If they would make the time to understand that God is against homosexuality, and all sexual sin, there wouldn’t be a problem.
But because people are caught in sin, they will use the very Scriptures that denounce sin to announce sin……is all right. We make all sorts of excuses when we see men and women fall into sin.
Have you noticed that when a pastor is caught in sexual sin and is disgraced, the mistress is never mentioned?
Because a woman can do no wrong and she is just a victim.
What a lie from the devil.
Notice that the writer of Hebrews said, “it is impossible…”
That’s the closed mindedness of God.
No prayer can overcome what God declares to be impossible.
But didn’t God say that “with God all things are possible.”
When it comes to asking the Lord in accordance with His will according to 1 John 5:14-15.
This is not about prayer and seeking God about supplication and requests.
This is about apostates that turn their backs on God deliberately.
It is “impossible.”
Carlton Pearson is an apostate.
Regarding Kirk Franklin, James 4:4 is applicable here. When you are an enemy of God, you are against the Scriptures. When you are against the Scriptures, you are against the God who gave the Scriptures. When you are against the God that gave the Scriptures, you have no chair to sit in when the music stops. And even if the music is playing and you got a chance, it’s a false sense of security.
So let us not kid ourselves.
These are the last of the last days and more demarcation is taking place.
A clear indication that when people take the side of the world, the devil is about to take anyone with him to hell that is willing to accept the lie over the truth.
It’s time to move away from personality worship and get as close to the Word of God and God and endure to the end to be saved.
The deception will continue and strong delusion sent by God is in the atmosphere. To see who really wants God or foolishness.
By the way. What was it that we’ve known all along?
That sexual immorality in the lives of “gospel artists” is still a stronghold and that people that pretend to know the Lord are imposters.
The article from EXMinistries regarding Carlton Pearson and Kirk Franklin could be read here.
It’s amazing when you watch a well known celebrity lay hands on Bishop TD Jakes, and the Christian world declares that Tyler Perry can preach and he is anointed by God. Tyler Perry is a real man of God. He speaks about “our” issues and he’s real. He talks about what really goes on in church. Y’all better stop talking about Tyler Perry cause he’s for real.
Then, all of a sudden, what does happen in church, happens to him.
When you have someone that went through some stuff, pull up his boot straps, and make it, he could do no wrong.
We don’t mind these kinds of stories because it gives the rest of us hope that we can make it.
When you wear women’s clothing that is against the Scriptures (Deuteronomy 22:5), make movies that mock the true church of God, interweaving fact with fiction and call it real, and then lay hands on a Bishop, preach with no call of God on his life, and then celebrate a child out of wedlock, does these sins exemplify true Christian living that glorifies God?
Do not deceive yourselves.
Just because people fail the standard (Bible), it doesn’t mean that the standard (Bible) failed.
God’s grace is not just about cutting man some slack. It’s about bringing man’s sins to bear on his life, to cause man to recognize the goodness of the Lord, and to get it right. Grace gives man a chance to get it straight with God. Favor demands you get it straight before it is too late.
Romans 6:1 says, “Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we that are dead to sin live any longer in it (sin)?”
Haters of the Scriptures will never rightly divide the Word of truth on this issue.
It is no wonder that the Lord told me and others that this generation of believers is some of the worst ever on this planet.
This generation of believers live by Isaiah 5:20.
Folks, Jesus said you shall know them by their fruits.
In Matthew 7:15-20, the Lord Jesus said “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”
A lot of carnal believing people will defend Scripturally indefensible positions. The “Judge not” crowd already came to his defense.
When it comes to sin, there is only two sides of the fence. You can’t stand on both sides, otherwise, you are an enemy of God according to James 4:4. You can’t be a friend of the devil and a friend of God at the same time. Love one and hate the other. “You cannot serve two masters,” said Jesus.
Paul said this in Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?”
There will be misguided immature people that will judge the Word of God that we share and call us Pharisees, holier than thous, talking about God’s anointed, putting your mouth on people and prophets.
Folks have a bad habit of distorting the truth so that their sins would not be exposed and brought to the light.
Jesus said this in John 3:18-21 “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.”
Fornication is not a work that is done in God. Righteousness is a work done in God.
One person posted on FB that “At least he didn’t have the child aborted. They should get married”
Sometimes, when people make these kinds of ill-advised ill-conceived statements, this is a deliberately conspired, vain attempt to cover the sin of fornication. Marriage and abortion after the child is conceived is the world’s way to cover their sin of fornication or adultery.
Sadly, over the years, professed believers have increasingly incorporated this act to cover sin.
God doesn’t appreciate that you are sewing fig leaves to cover your nakedness.
In fact, Yolanda Adams (Adams is not the woman that got pregnant) celebrated the coming of their bundle of joy.
I thought that sin was sin and sin is never to be celebrated. God never celebrated sin. The Lord God judged sin in the flesh of Jesus. Meaning that the Lord God sent His only Son to die for the sins of the world. The Lord Jesus didn’t die for our sins so that we could commit more sin.
God kicked sin out of heaven and sin will never return into the domain of God forever.
The Lord Jesus prayed the Lord’s Prayer and part of that prayer was, “Forgive us our debts or trespasses.” He also prayed “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
Sin is not the will of God in heaven. It is the will of the devil on earth in unregenerate man and carnal believers that have yet to learn how to walk in total obedience to the Scriptures.
What we have seen in the Potters House with Tyler Perry and TD Jakes having hands laid on him is consistent throughout much of the Body of Christ. We excuse people from walking in genuine Christian maturity, and exchange it for performance and showmanship. In front of a crowd, we love to see people go ooh and ah when we say and do spiritually spooky things.
And some preachers Jesus would call, hypocrites, brood of vipers, and snakes.
When the show is over, reality continues.
No change when they come through the doors and no change when they walk out the doors.
Because leaders do not change.
The Lord Jesus died for our sins to free us from sin. While we are not perfect, and we never will be, we are expected to repent, ask God to forgive us our sins, and never sin again by walking in obedience to the Scriptures.
SO, this is not gossip.
Let’s define gossip.
Gossip is a “casual or unconstrained conversation or reports about other people, typically involving details that are not confirmed as being true:”
Since Tyler Perry announced that he fornicated and a child is produced out of wedlock, this is not gossip. The woman he fornicated with is not off the hook. She is guilty of sin just as Tyler Perry is guilty.
Since he has a following, many people will sadly follow suit and do the same. The spirit of fornication and adultery is heavy in the house of worship. Some pastors are not taking a stand by calling this a sin, but they are also celebrating the birth of a child. There is nothing against the child. I was born out of wedlock. The child is here and there is nothing that we can do about it, except call it what it is.
A child that is not born with the parents being a husband and wife before conception.
The Bible calls it “FORNICATION and ILLEGITIMATE.”
Illegitimate meaning that the conception happened outside of wedlock. The child is a legitimate child, no doubt.
He didn’t announce the fornication, just that he impregnated a woman that he is not married to.
The celebration begins.
This is true facts, not rumors.
Therefore, this is exposure.
Scriptures come to mind when you deal with fornicators.
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.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Hebrews 13:4 “Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”
Now there is a way for Tyler Perry and all other fornicators to get out of this. The only way out of this is to repent.
Repent means to change your mind or reconsider your ways.
Isaiah 55:6-7 says, “Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.”
So, let’s command them to repent and pray that they ask God to forgive them.
Forgiveness is only offered after a person repents of sin. The pattern is clear as to how God forgives sin.
Luke 17:1-4 is that pattern.
Folks, if there is ever a time to rebuke Charisma Magazine, it is now.
Oprah Winfrey openly denounced Jesus as the Only Way. In another show, she had a panel of false prophets and teachers that unequivocally affirm the sin of homosexuality. On Oprah’s webpage on Oprah.com, she has a page that addresses and endorses pornography. No where in her article does she denounce porn, but she affirms it.
And yet, Charisma seem to be turning the corner about the Secret and Overt Sexual Sins of our times. This is appalling. This is reprehensible and this is outrageous.
This is expected, but I am surprised. The compromise is as bold as I have ever seen. Janet Boynes, wrote a stinging article about how the church must be more proactive than reactive. This is in regards to how the LGBT agenda has made its mark by effectively pushing the homosexual agenda by way of mainstream media outlets. In particular, they were successful in the United States via tv, Internet, newspapers, and homosexual porn.
As I was about to respond to a comment made probably by a practicing homosexual about Ruth being married to Naomi, a very incorrect statement because of what Ruth 4:13 says, I looked at the Internet front page of Charisma and noted that they were advertising for MegaFest, sponsored by TD Jakes Ministries to be held in Dallas,TX August 29-30.
For Charisma Magazine to even accept the ad is one thing, but also to show Oprah Winfrey’s “Life Class” as one of the events took me by shock. This is nothing more than “seducing spirits and doctrine or teachings of demons.” Light and darkness cannot co-mingle. Yet, Charisma Magazine has done just that.
There is no question of the compromise.
As you all know that Creflo Dollar, who will be at MegaFest, made his sitcom debut as a funeral director on the “Rickey Smiley Show.” With all that is perverted about the show, we see that an egregious error was made on the part of Creflo Dollar to even side in with the affairs of the world.
Folks, we are seeing the apostasy take place in unprecedented fashion.
These men and women that were supposed to be of God have turned aside unto vanity.
This did not catch God by surprise. We are seeing the last of the last days unfold in such a way that the very elect is being deceived. When you look around you and see that the people in the church are walking away from the Savior, led by spiritual leadership that once trusted in the Lord, know for certain that when the music stops playing, those that thought that they would have a seat, will be left standing before the judgment seat of Christ.
Matthew 10:32-33 says,
“Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.”
When you openly deny the Savior, expect to be denied before the Father in heaven.
Let’s not be confused nor deceived about this.
This advertisement is not an innocent attempt to make it seem like the agenda is harmless. Anything that the world does and anything that the church does in conjunction with the world is harmful.
2 Corinthians 6:17 is there for a reason.
“Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. And touch not the unclean thing, and I will receive you…”
To come out requires that you make a bold move towards the exits. This means that not every one will agree with you. Some will even say that this is not as big a deal as you make it out to be.
If you never were delivered from darkness, it is expected that a return to darkness is in the agenda all along. If you claim to be in the light as He is in the light, then there is no question what must be done.
I urge you to make a decision that will cause many to ridicule you. You will no longer be loved by folk that walk in the ways of darkness while trying to live like they were in the light all along.
I urge you to reconsider your ways.
Think quickly because the road to destruction is wide and many are flowing with ease down this street called BROADWAY.
If you refuse to come out, it’s on you.
Remember Lot’s wife.
She looked back and turned into a pillar of salt. Why, because she had affection for the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah that exceeded having a complete affection for God.
So in the same fashion, we are seeing the leaders of our day completely change their affection from the heart of the Father to the heart of the devil. They have become enemies of Christ and the cross. The blood that was shed by Jesus means nothing to them any longer. And for many that claim to be saved, the blood means nothing for them either.
Sin is more important than righteousness. To break free, to them, is too much of a task.
I urge you to boycott anything that has the hint of demons, including Charisma Magazine until they come to their senses. Otherwise, enjoy your time in bed with them. For when the Lord brings His wrath upon them, you will wish you had made a move for the exits.
