UnknownIt was a calm Tuesday morning. In NYC, the polls were open. Voting was in full swing. My wife took my daughter to school on the upper east side of Harlem. I just got back from running and voting. I went to bed and then I decided to turn on the TV. On the screen was the North Tower with a gapping hole at an angle.

Smoke was ascending and blowing to the south, south west.

I went to the roof and wondered what was really going on.

First, the air traffic pattern for that area flies right over the apartment building we were in. Since my dad was the landlord at the time, I had access to the roof. I quickly went to the roof for a better sight. I said to myself this must be a serious error of judgment from the pilot. Several planes flew over the house from the south, on final approach to LaGuardia.

I went back to my apartment to get my camera because this was a significant event. After retrieving my camera to take photos, I thought that perhaps, the pilot had equipment trouble but with clear skies, VFR (Visual Flying Rules) were in effect. However, on approach, there is a certain pattern that requires a few turns to get “in line” for your final, but never from the north unless you are flying at a certain altitude.

Such an alternate pattern would take you back towards Coney Island north to south, circle around to the east, and then north again, and then the final to LaGuardia.

I was never an Air Traffic Controller in the Navy, but as an Operations Specialist, vectoring military helicopters was part of my MOS.

Then out of the corner of my eye, I observed a dark plane flying from the south, flying at a very high rate of speed, sloping into the south tower.

Sound travels at eleven hundred feet per second and I was roughly three miles or more from lower Manhattan. In three or five seconds, I heard and felt the explosion as the plane slammed violently into the tower.

At that moment, I said to myself, “This is no accident. This is an attack.”

I went back down stairs and my wife just got home.

We watched in horror what was happening.

Then the south tower collapsed. Then a while later, the north tower collapsed.

Smoke ascended.

I said to my wife, let’s get our daughter.

The smell was incredibly toxic. For weeks, this smell of death permeated the area. It was a solemn reminder that death could happen at any moment.

We drove to the Triboro Bridge (renamed Robert F. Kennedy), parked the car on the Queens side. I asked my wife to stay with the car as I walked over the bridge to Harlem. Sheryl was not there because she had left with a friend over the Triboro Bridge on the opposite side. I came back to the car and Sheryl was with my wife.

At that moment, it was God that made that happen because I didn’t want her to take the train. Underground is too complicated when a city is under attack. It’s the last place you want to go unless you have no other options.

Reunited with my family, I felt obligated to go back into military service but I would have to get waivers for my age. My wife and daughter cried because the way I saw it, the only way to get back at who did this was to go over there and kill them.

The attacks were too close to home.

Years later, it would have been the wrong decision to go.

Almost 3000 people were wiped off the face of the earth. You want revenge and you want to do it in a way where there is no mistake about it. Having served in the greatest Navy the world has ever seen, I know that we would be able to deliver the goods.

I found out later that like the children of Israel, when you sin as a nation, the boarders are wide open for judgment.

That’s right. JUDGMENT!!!!

The symbols of power of this nation were attacked.

Financial and military.

Note Psalm 33:10-16 “The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart to all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.
The Lord looks from heaven;
He sees all the sons of men.
From the place of His dwelling He looks
On all the inhabitants of the earth;
He fashions their hearts individually;
He considers all their works.
No king is saved by the multitude of an army;
A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.”

When a nation and the people of God in this nation deliberately defies God and turn its back on Him, we have no protection. Under all the intelligence operations apparatuses, under the radar of our military might, under the watchful eyes of our satellites, we were reduced, mocked, and made a laughing stock.

People from the mountain regions, that lived in the valleys visited America to do harm.

Much like the children of Israel. Invincibility is never a guarantee when God is not found among the people of God. We must also remember that America, or any other nation, for that matter, is not Israel, nor are Americans true believers unless they repent and make Jesus Lord, and be born again.

To humiliate this nation, God sends a weak group of people to terrorize a mighty nation.

That’s right. God sent them.

Look at the many small and large nations that the Lord sent to judge Israel because they deliberately disobeyed Him.

This nation is not to be blamed alone.

The sleeping giant, called the church. Christians. Believers of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Yup!

Any believers that live in sin opens the doors of judgment.

Even today, the people in the church, the Body of Christ is Samson, tied between the posts with our eyes gouged out as the Philistines make sport of us.

Peter said these words, “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?”

What about this nation?

Study the OT, and you will see that every nation that never repented were severely judged. Some nations never recovered and ceased to exist.

The United States has experienced the grace of God for 238 years. This graced is about to come to a close.

We must remember that these are the end times.

Sadly, many people want the good times to return. However, as Jesus said in Matthew 24, “Because of lawlessness, the love of many will grow cold.”

We are seeing this unfold before our very eyes.

The major sins of this nation is covetousness or greed, the sin of homosexuality, and abortion.

As long as we kill innocent children and insist on the sin of homosexuality, adultery, fornication, bisexuality, bestiality or zoophilia, porn, masturbation and all other sins, this nation must come to a close.

Repentance spares people from what is to come.

Hell for all eternity.

Many people do not believe that this is going to come to an end. That life will go on.

Do not fool yourself.

Hebrews 9:27 says, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, after this the judgment.”

If death is true, judgment is true.

Those that died that day on 9/11 was judgment on this nation for its pride and arrogance.

Many will say that I am very cold for saying this.

Luke 13 is your answer.

Was Jesus cold in saying that “Unless you repent, you shall all likewise perish?”

The very Jesus that sinners want believers of Jesus to become.

This Jesus, who is God is warning every one of us to repent or we will perish in the same manner. Out of all those that died on that fateful day, we pray that some of them were true believers and made it into heaven. In Matthew’s account of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Lord said, “Many are on the road leading to destruction.”

On the streets as I am preaching, many pass by me and never pay attention to the warning to be saved, to repent and be born again.

Noah, not the movie, a preacher of righteousness, according to Peter’s general epistle, preached to the people about the coming judgment. No one listened and they all perished. Sodom and Gomorrah. Same thing. No one repented. God rescued Lot, his wife, and two daughters. Lot’s wife looked back and became a pillar of salt.

Such is the case today.

Many of God’s people have already looked back and became a pillar of salt.

As we preach, many ignore the call to repent.

A sure sign of one thing.

Judgment. 

At every Yankee game during the seventh inning stretch, they would play and sing “God Bless America.”

With beer in their hands, they would sing.

With sin in our lives, we would sing.

With unrepentant hearts, we would sing.

God Bless America, when we kill babies.

God Bless America as the Congress sung on the Capital steps on the night of 9/11. The same ones that legislate immorality.

God Bless America when we perform SSM.

God Bless America without God in our schools.

God Bless America with attacks on preachers regarding free speech.

God Bless America when preachers watch porn and masturbates.

God Bless America when church vixens dress provocatively to trip up a pastor.

God Bless America when a pastor infects women with HIV/AIDS, or sexually takes advantage of emotionally unstable women in church.

God Bless America when Jezebel and Delilah walk through the doors.

God Bless America when homosexuals play and sing gospel.

God Bless America when pastors take over churches on the rogue.

God Bless America when child Sunday School workers are child molesters.

God Bless America when Preachers of LA, Preacher’s Daughters, Ex Wives of Preachers, Sunday Best uncover what is really going on in the house of worship.

God Bless America when churches are having orgies as they are worshipping sex.

God Bless America when we are covetous in goods, rich in wealth and not rich towards God.

God Bless America when good is evil and evil is good.

God Bless America when LGBTQ churches open up all across the land.

The hypocrisy in the church is reflected in the fabric of America.

There is still a remnant that refuse to live in sin. There is a remnant that is serious about living right before God in holiness. There is a remnant that is preaching the gospel and living what they are preaching. There is a remnant that is praying and seeking the face of God. There is a remnant that tells the devil forever no, and told God forever yes.

 

 

Since we are called “homophobes,” I felt compelled to make up a word for LGBT.

Some will say that this is name calling and it is biased, bigoted, discriminant, and shameful.

Well, consider the fact that adulterers, fornicators, bisexuals, porno watchers, and hard core masturbators, or carnal Christians are holinessphobes too.

Sinners that claim to be in a Christ possess an irrational fear of righteousness.

My intent is to stir you to get you to really see the reality of who you are.

If you are offended, just know that the truth in the gospel deliberately offends people.

For what reason?

In hopes that you would see the wickedness of your ways and turn to the Lord in repentance.

Some will say that they would never preach this.

God is not asking you to.

God is commanding His preachers to stand boldly and proclaim the gospel. Everyone has been led to do things differently so let us not be found countermanding a method by God when it leads to provoking sinners to depart from sin and live in the fear of the Lord.

When the believers were called “Christians,” the intent was to apply a title of bias on those that followed Jesus. So true was the walk of the believers of the early church that “Christian” became a derogatory term that indicated that Jesus in the believer, was truly among those that decided to call it quits with sin.

That’s why you can’t call yourself a child of God and commit sin like the devil.

You can’t be both. You are either a child of God or a child of satan. You are known by your fruit (see Matthew 7:15-20).

The term Christians or Christian is recorded in three places.

Acts 11:26, Acts 26:28, and 1 Peter 4:16.

Christianity was a threat to the Roman government and especially to Israel.

Sin is a business but worse than a business, it is bondage to the prince of darkness. To break free of sin ruins the original plan of the god of this world. To take as many people to the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.

For so long, we have been accused of hating homosexuals which is the furthest thing from the truth.

But one thing is clear.

The Lord hates sin and in the Scriptures, God hates the wicked.

Psalm 11:5-7 says “The Lord tests the righteous,
But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.
Upon the wicked He will rain coals;
Fire and brimstone and a burning wind
Shall be the portion of their cup.
For the Lord is righteous,
He loves righteousness;
His countenance beholds the upright.”

Psalm 34:21 says, “Evil shall slay the wicked,
And those who hate the righteous shall be condemned.”

To remove yourselves from the hatred of God, you are commanded to repent.

Here is the new coined word.

‪#‎Holinessphobia‬: encompasses a deliberate, vehement intolerance for God, His Holy Word, and believers. An irrational fear of righteousness.”

While there is no real etymological basis for homophobia, it is the same for holinessphobia.

Does it cancel itself?

Certainly not!

Anyone that is in fear of the holiness of God has something more to be afraid of.

Paul said in Romans 1:18, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,”

Wrath is reserved for all who hate God and His Word. And then the Psalms reveal that “…those who hate the righteous shall be condemned.”

While God hates the wicked, He loves the sinner.

God is capable of both because He is God.

We move forward to the NT, and we see John 3:16.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”

No doubt, you believe it is a direct contradiction.

But it isn’t.

First, God is true to Himself, not to you.

Second, He has every right to hate those that hate Him (see John 15:18-25).

Third, God demonstrated His love towards you, in that He demonstrated His love for you by sending His Son to die for our sins.

Fourth, God has every right to send us all to hell because He created us with a free will. Adam deliberately defied the will of God and according to Galatians 3:22, God concluded all under sin according to the Scriptures.

The reason why God didn’t just judge Adam and Eve is because if He would have created another Adam and Eve (male and female), God would be back at square one. God is going through this one time, man is going through this one time, and the devil is going to go through this one time, never to be a terror ever again (see Ezekiel 28:19).

Man sinned, not God.

We are the ones that need to conform to His Son’s image. To repent. To ask God for His forgiveness. To be born again. To obey the commands written in the Word of God, willingly.

This is the bottom line.

So we need to fall on God’s mercy and receive the provision of salvation before it’s too late.

So, to avoid being a holinessphobe, just repent and ask the Lord to forgive you of all sin. There is nothing to be afraid about the holiness of God. The first rule of heaven is that God is holy. He is righteous. He is true.

Heaven is holy. Clean. Pure. Sinless.

In heaven, there is none of the woes of life. The pleasures of this world can’t compare to the pleasure of the Lord where there is peace, tranquility, and no death. No violence, no pain, no suffering. No STD’s and HIV/AIDS. No more seeking a cure to survive for a moment in time just to die.

In this life, we all must die, but in Christ, we can live again. Provided we accept the terms of the provision of salvation.

Death is the end of the line. The ride comes to a stop and everyone must depart.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23.

Jesus said these words in John 5:24-30, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.

For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself, and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth

—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.”

In hell, there is weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

There is heat, darkness, and fear.

The fear of never getting out.

All who pass through into hell MUST abandon all hope.

Once you pass away, there is no coming back.

Sad price to pay for being a holinessphobe.

It is clear that she is in damage control because her first statement went viral on YouTube, FB, Twitter, and the blogs.

Here is her “defensive” remarks.

“While I admit that I could have been more articulate in my remarks, I stand by my point that when we worship God and are obedient to Him we will be better for it,” she stated. “I did not mean to imply that we don’t worship God; that’s ridiculous, and only the critics and cynics are interpreting my remarks that way.”

Here is what she said before her defensive remarks.

“So, I want you to know this morning: Just do good for your own self. Do good because God wants you to be happy,” Osteen continues. “When you come to church, when you worship Him, you’re not doing it for God really. You’re doing it for yourself, because that’s what makes God happy. Amen?”

Now, let me ask you.

What is there to “interpret?”

One of the things that we have to be very clear about is that we never say things unless we mean them. Anyone that is articulate will sometimes catch what they said or at the very least, correct what was said before it gets out of hand. It is clear that she is standing by her point.

Which means that instead of humbling herself, pride is before her.

All she had to say was, “In light of the Scriptures, my remarks were entirely inaccurate. In the future, I will ensure that I anchor my remarks with concurring Scriptures. Please keep me in your prayers as we seek to worship God and not ourselves. God is concerned about our holiness far above our happiness. Our goal is to fully please God and not ourselves.”

One of the things that we must never do is allow ourselves to get so puffed up that when we say something that is inconsistent with the Scriptures, we fail to correct it.

Was it an honest or deliberate mistake?

After watching what the Osteens have been saying lately, and I could be wrong, it is deliberate.

Why?

Since the passing of John Osteen in 1999, there has been a deliberate change of direction. Every pastor that assumes the pulpit want to establish themselves as the new leader. To be like your predecessor is not healthy. However, when it comes to the Word of God, it is always best to be consistent with the Word of God.

Lakewood Church was a place where you knew that you were going to get the Word of God.

The late John Osteen always, as a former Baptist preacher, told the congregation to open their Bibles. He would always anchor his text with Scripture. On the TV screen, there would be Scriptures so that the people (hospital bound or in prison) could follow.

Correct me if I am wrong, but we have yet to see Joel Osteen anchor one text with Scripture.

The only time Joel touches his Bible is when they make that confession originated by John Osteen.

And then he puts the Bible away.

Yes, throughout Joel’s motivational speeches, he cites stories in the Bible but notice that the people in the front seat would have their Bibles opened but there is no searching of the Scriptures. They take notes while not turning to any Scriptures.

To me this is a clear violation of Acts 17:11.

Everybody is “happy.”

Same thing with Jakes and a few others. Although from time to time, Jakes opens the Bible. Here, I could be wrong too.

Folks, when we are in denial, we will continue to deny the truth and go about our business as if no wrong was committed.

It’s almost like a “What’s the big deal? Lakewood members know what I meant by what I said.”

Yes, they were conditioned to accept it over the years because the Osteens apparently trained them for the last 15 years.

This means that to search the Scriptures to correct error will not happen.

Also, Joel Osteen would have “seasoned” preachers come and give the Word but they come and preach safe messages so that they would be invited back. You can’t resist a large crowd and a generous honorarium.

It is my prayer that people would wake up and see what is happening.

When there is a usurping of the Scriptures with our own thinking, we’ve replaced God and His Word for ours. And they can do no wrong. Sadly, Lakewood members will defend the Osteens to the death.

The danger is clear.

As long as God’s Word is absent, sin is present.

You may say “What sin?”

Exodus 20:3-5 “You shall have no other gods before Me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image —any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God,”

We begin to worship ourselves.

We become God.

That’s why we must never, as Pastor Darren Butler of International Good News Fellowship in Freeport, NY once said, “Never worship the manuscript.”

When you like the way you sound, you have spoken an oracle that came from another source. And as Paul said, “Spreads like a cancer.”

It is just a matter of time before you will say something and it will not be the Bible. Then when people say the Scriptures that refute what was said, we become their enemy. We are the cynics and critics.

But we didn’t say what Victoria Osteen said.

We only quoted what Victoria Osteen said, commented on it, gave refuting Scriptures, and moved on.

Paul said this, “Am I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?”

That’s why all throughout the Bible, you will see people in the Bible citing other places in Scripture that validates their points.

Victoria Osteen has yet to provide supporting Biblical Scripture or solid Biblical foundation for what she said. And she won’t be able to because there is no Scripture to validate what she said. There is no excuse any more because the real time application of the Internet will be quick to point out the error.

Either you are Scripturally accurate or you are not.

Truth is an enemy to lies, false statements, sin, deception, misrepresentations, and mistakes.

At this point, it would be best for Victoria Osteen to hold her peace, repent, and get some help in understanding the Bible. With cameras and YouTube these days, we must all be careful with what we say because it will be addressed.

She doesn’t have the luxury of being defensive and her statements are defending an indefensible position.

The link for this defensive remark came from……

Here is a concurring statement from Christian News, please click the link for more info.

http://christiannews.net/2014/09/06/i-stand-by-my-point-joel-osteens-wife-unrepentant-over-remarks-of-worshiping-god-for-self/

 

I am off subject about sexual immorality in the church, however, the buzz this past week has been the statements that Victoria Osteen, wife of famed motivational speaker, Joel Osteen, made.

The direct quote from YouTube is below.

Then you have another person on a different YouTube video attempt to defend an indefensible position.

My response is not a personal attack on Mrs. Osteen. My response is a simple rebuttal of her statements from the Scriptures.

For it is in the correctly taught Scriptures that we find safety and security.

John 4:23-24 says, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Revelation 4:11 says, “You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.”

Colossians 1:15-18 says “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him 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 and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.”

Romans 14:7:9 says “For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.

For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living.”

With these Scriptures, we were created for Him to please Him and not to please ourselves.

Hebrews 11:6 says, “For without faith it is impossible to please Him for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarded of those that diligently seek Him”

When you see the videos, you’re probably going to say, “What’s the big deal?”

The big deal is that for the last few years, statements have been made without harmonious Scripture, or they have been made out of context of Scripture that violate the basic or fundamental Biblical rule of interpreting the Scriptures.

2 Timothy 3:16 says “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

2 Timothy 2:15 says “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

We can readily determine that what Mrs. Osteen said did not come from the Spirit of God because the Spirit of God will never contradict Scripture or say anything contrary to the Scriptures because the Holy Spirit and the Word agrees. Therefore, Mrs. Osteen wrongly divided the word of truth.

In fact, she never used Scripture at all. The words came from the soul; intellect and emotional compartments, absent of the Spirit of God and concurring Scriptures.

1 John 5:6-8 says “This is He who came by water and blood — Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.

For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.

Because Jesus is the Word” (John 1:1), and because Jesus is “The Truth…” (John 14:6), and because the Holy Spirit is the “Spirit of truth,” and  because the Word that the Father gave for Jesus to speak is the truth “Sanctify them through Your truth, Your Word is truth,” (John 17:17), there is no way possible that Mrs. Osteen’s word is acceptable, neither should it be received.

When the Bible is wrongly divided, we give ourselves a license to make the Bible say what we want it to say. Hence, we are no different than followers of the world that follow the satanic bible that says, “DO AS THOU WILT.”

Also, a person must resist the temptation to “Be wise in their own opinion.”

In other words, never allow your opinion or words to supersede the Bible. So much so that your opinion is exalted above the Word of God.

Sadly, people will be gullible according to Proverbs 14:15.

A lot of folks will think that we are gang raping her with the Bible.

Let’s be clear.

This is not about jumping on her to score points.

This is about the continuity of Biblical accuracy of the presentation of the Scriptures.

When we fail to be accurate with the Scriptures, we are brought back to Genesis 3:1-4.

In Isaiah 28:9-10, revelation of the Scriptures is given by the Lord, “line upon line, precept upon precept….here and little, there a little.”

Why?

So that truth is correctly given.

Also, we must never defend error. Especially when the light of Scriptures comes to correct error. Sadly, people will defend an indefensible position and hold on to that position to their own peril. One of the most important reasons why people defend error is because they are emotionally attached to error that they will not receive correction to let it go.

Some would rather die before giving up their error.

Why?

It’s all about pride.

Humility and humbleness of mind prevents humiliation.

“Pride comes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

Pride is what got the devil kicked out of heaven and pride will kick us out too. When you are standing before thousands of people, you feel confident, powerful, and it’s an intoxication of power. When you believe that you are full of yourself, nothing that you say is wrong. There is a sense of invincibility and power that is demonic. Even though the video abruptly ended, I wondered if Joel Osteen corrected what Victoria said? This I highly doubt because I believe that it was a deliberate co-conspired event. Planned and executed with the agreement (applause) of the people.

Hence, Matthew 15:6-9.

“Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:
‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth,
And honor Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’

Paul told Timothy these words in 2 Timothy 4:2.
“Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

But for the last few years, we’ve been seeing 2 Timothy 4:3-4.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”

This is that time that Paul, by the Holy Spirit warned us about.

There is a deliberate departure from the truth embedded in God’s Word.

Why?

This is an overt plan to increase sin in the lives of believers which is part of the apostasy in the Body of Christ.

The more we depart from the Word, the more we justify sin in our lives. We make up the rules and live the way we want to live. Hence…

“…you are doing it for yourself, because that’s what makes God happy.”

The falling away of the believers is underway with a good head of steam. Anyone that is not willing to go with the crowd of error will be mocked and ridiculed as you will see in the video below Victoria Osteen’s.

If we fail to walk by the accuracy of the Scriptures, we are walking in great deception according to Proverbs 14:15.

The Michael Sam experiment came to an apparent abrupt halt.

For the past few years, the almost mighty LGBT machine, with the help of the media, was able to bully it’s way into almost every venue in America. As an ESPN analyst said, the NFL is one of the last holdouts of pro sports.

In fact, he went as far as to call the NFL “homophobes.” 

This time, the LGBT machine hit a big road block of self destruction.

More like drove into a big brick wall and totaled the car.

Everywhere Michael Sam went, a large media contingent would follow.

It got so bad that they wanted the scoop on Michael Sam’s shower habits.

That’s what it always comes down to. To see if lewd activity is taking place in the locker rooms of professional sports figures. It was never going to be about a remarkable “feat” of perversion in making the NFL as the first openly gay football player, but to see if any “down low” playing or homosexual activity is taking place.

Years ago, it was prohibited for women journalists to enter male locker rooms for obvious reasons.

I do not have the actual documentation but do they allow male journalists in the WNBA locker rooms?

Anyway, this is besides the point……….almost.

So what ESPN also tried to so is compare this with the media attention Tebow received because of his stand against the sin of homosexuality. This tells me one thing that the world is so confused that the unwarranted attacks on Tebow because of his Christian stand is comparable to Michael Sam, a practicing homosexual.

Persecute a Christian football player for his stand against the sin of homosexuality and now the media persecutes themselves for putting out the details on a practicing homosexual.

It takes a lot of nerve to compare righteousness with unrighteousness.

Let’s call this what it should have been called from jump street.

This is called a “media circus,” but this is much worse than this.

Mind you that the devil runs the people that are not in Christ.

1 John 5:19 says “We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.”

2 Corinthians 4:4 says “In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds that believe not…”

Ephesians 2:2-3 says “in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.” 

So as long as satan runs the media and unregenerate man is under the direct influence of demons, this confusion will continue.

It is clear that this has backfired on Michael Sam and the media. But this is far from over. Somewhere down the line, LGBT will get it’s shining star moment so that it could look good.

Sin never looks good.

Adultery, fornication, theft, lying, porn, masturbation, heresy, envy, strife, maliciousness, bisexuality, and homosexuality.

All kinds of sin always look bad in the eyes of the Holy and Righteous God of heaven and earth.

Put lipstick on a pig and it is still a pig.

 

Since the first transgender person came on the scene, you knew that the next question that would be asked is could a transgender person reproduce?

Physically impossible because you knew that they tried and it didn’t work.

It’s further proof of the foolishness of God to create “male and female.”

Transgenderism is just another form of homosexuality.

It is also another way in which the devil attempts to destroy the image of God.

When God created man, He created us in His image.

Permanently created us in His image and placed us in the containers of flesh we were born with. This is indicative of the fact that no matter what gender you want to become, the mind of God never changed and God never makes mistakes. To medically and surgically alter the original intent of God is theft, lying, and sexual sins.

Many will cry that it’s not fair and that they have the right to change their gender irrespective of what the Bible and Bible thumpers say.

Well Hebrews 9:27 stares at you.

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, after that the judgment.”

Because death is true on one hand, judgment is true on the other hand.

You have every right to disagree but your disagreement doesn’t negate what will take place after you breathe your last on this planet.

Then there are those that say, “What’s wrong with this? They love each other. Why not let them alone?”

Because the morals of the Word of God negates the mindset of perversion to satisfy sexual immorality in the heart, soul, and flesh.

Isaiah 29:14-16 says “Therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work
Among this people,
A marvelous work and a wonder;
For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish,
And the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.”
Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the Lord,
And their works are in the dark;
They say, “Who sees us?” and, “Who knows us?”
Surely you have things turned around!
Shall the potter be esteemed as the clay;
For shall the thing made say of him who made it,
“He did not make me”?
Or shall the thing formed say of him who formed it,
“He has no understanding”

Isaiah 45:9-10 says “Woe to him who strives with his Maker!
Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth!
Shall the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?’
Or shall your handiwork say, ‘He has no hands’?
Woe to him who says to his father, ‘What are you begetting?’
Or to the woman, ‘What have you brought forth?’”

As the prophet Isaiah correctly prophesied, they accused the Lord for having things “turned around.”

They say….God, you do not know what you were doing. I was born in the wrong body. But what they’re really saying is that they wanted to justify the sinful practice of homosexuality and decided to alter their bodies to commit the sin of homosexuality without being the original sex they were born with.

In other words, if I turned my body into a woman, I can enjoy being a man in a woman’s body, and likewise a woman.

As I have said in a previous blog, it is a clear spiritual identity crisis but they refused to come to the Creator to repent, ask for forgiveness, be born again, and learn how to be obedient to the Word of God regarding sexual discipline.

This is not hate language.

I never said that I hate you.

John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not persish but have everlasting life.”

I find it hard to find the word “hate” in that verse of Scripture.

RESTORE, DON’T BERATE

One of the worst things, but also the most common, is to berate the addict for lying to them or not being open with them. The last thing the addict needs is to have even more guilt and shame flung on him. He has enough of his own already and if he is married he will likely be hit with more than he can handle. Restoration is the job of the group/accountability partners. Getting him  back on track in recovery and helping him get rid of the things he has built up to facilitate acting out is essential. Grace and compassion are needed regardless of how hurt we may feel as accountability partners. We have been wounded by the addict but we MUST put our own hurts aside and show them the love and mercy that in Christ, God…
