The decision not to indict Officer Wilson devastated the nation.

Michael Brown, an unarmed man was gunned down by Wilson. It is understandable that people would be upset, however, a deeper issue is being missed.

150,000 persons pass into eternity every single day. 1.8 persons per second.

As I have said before. No one is really thinking about the fact that Michael Brown is in eternity. What part of eternity? Most people want to assume that he is either in heaven or hell. If he made repentance to Jesus, then it’s a no brainer. If he failed to do so, he is in hell. Just because he may have died a horrible death, it doesn’t automatically award a person a place in heaven.

But the question is about you now. In a nano second, you and I could be plunged into eternity. Where will you spend eternity if you are not saved?

In hell.

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

Few of us will look at it from the eternal perspective because of the darkness of men’s heart.

Just a few moments ago, a bunch of clergy in Ferguson stood on the stage with the mayor of Ferguson.

I must say that this is the day where preachers are ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are ashamed to preach the only solution to man’s woe’s. So long as man refuses to come to the Lord in repentance, more incidences will ensue. Eternity is a long time to think about why people refuse to repent of sin and be born again.

What’s more important to us is “race relations.” Not eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Some will say that I am missing the point. No. Because at the end of the day, everyone’s grain of sand in the hour glass will fall and the end of life will be realized.

Social injustice is first a spiritual injustice. What is the spiritual injustice? As long as man is in sin and refuses to come to the Lord to be saved from sin, more Fergusons will happen. Spiritual injustice? One person said that there is a “vacuum of leadership from the Black community.”

There is a spiritual vacuum of pastoral leadership to preach and live the gospel of Jesus Christ. But it’s not every where. There are pastors that are living and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in Ferguson, but people refuse to come to be saved by the Lord.

Here is the reason.

As long as the heart of man “is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked,” nothing will change.

More deaths will occur.

The Lord Jesus said this….John 3:17-21 says, “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

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.”

Paul said this in 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”

You see, it wasn’t the white man that won. It real person behind the scene won.

“…the god of this world.”

He is called satan or adversary. He is not a figment of a person’s imagination. Devils and satan exist and because men reason this into their minds that they do not exist and that Jesus is a myth, they are blinded.

Many will not believe the Bible, the Word of God. Many will not believe that Jesus is the Only Way, Truth, and Life (see John 14:6). Many will not believe that “Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

Many will mock, sneer, and scorn the true Word of God.

Lastly, clergy that stand in front of microphones and are ashamed of speaking about the Only Solution, the Lord Jesus Christ, are compromised. When you are ashamed of the name that is above every name, has denied the Lord. Paul said, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation…” Romans 1:16. It’s not the power of prayer that gets things done. It is the God that answer prayer that is the true power behind our praying. When you hear people say that they have the power of prayer, it’s a dead giveaway that they think that they can answer their prayers by just praying.

God answers prayer but the people that pray cannot compromise. They cannot withhold the name of Jesus as was seen in the Ferguson press conference with the clergy. Compromise is a sure fire way to keep God out of the affairs of man. Especially when you are ashamed to use the name that is above every name.

When you call on the Father in Jesus’ name, there is no shame. Because they are afraid to speak the name of Jesus, the Lord will deny them before the Father and the holy angels. When you fear man more than you fear God, it’s a revelation of the true god you serve. You may not like this, but I am not writing this to be liked.

The truth is what it is.

Deal with it.

 

In reading a CNN article, this article is to be taken with a grain of salt.

Because reports are not usually true unless you ask all 330,000 protestant Christian churches and their pastors.

Therefore, our capitulation and demise is greatly exaggerated.

Just because one person says that evangelical pastors are throwing in towel because the courts have activist judges that will circumvent the right of states, it doesn’t mean that we have stopped fighting the good fight of faith.

Over the last few years, LGBT has pretty much pushed back the evangelical leadership. From within the church, we have had practicing homosexuals preach, sing, and play keyboard, and other instruments as if it were accepted by the Lord. Some of the greatest music and songs to ever been produced came from practicing homosexuals.

The dual plan of satan was to infiltrate the church (wheat and tares) and wear down the leadership.

Overwhelm them.

Another known strategy was to wait until the defenders of the faith go home to be with the Lord. Knowing full well that when the torch should have been passed, it would be kept. Never to be turned over to fight the good fight of faith.

The quality of leadership in mainstream Christianity has been under attack from these three fronts.

Is it working?

It all depends on where you go to do a thorough examination.

Usually a loser will try to get into psychological warfare to sound so loud about our defeat that we just roll over and die.

One of the things that I admire about the Lord is that He will allow it to appear as if He has lost and then, out of no where, down by 200 trillion with one tenth of a second left to soundly win the game.

God has never lost to the devil and the devil never won a war against God.

Make no mistake about it.

God’s got this in the bag and there is nothing that the devil and his children could do about it.

So before we agree with this CNN assessment of evangelical leadership caving into the pressure of LGBT, just remember who is the God of all the earth. Remember Who it was that sent His Son to die on the cross for man’s sins. Resurrect the Lord Jesus from the grave, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of majesty.

The devil is the biggest loser. He is just a bonehead. And any person that thinks that the devil will win against God, has another wicked thought coming. The battle already took place in heaven and the devil is defeated. The only thing that is left is the Father making the last decision to finish the job. When He sends His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth, it will be a day that is feared by all.

No one wants that day to happen because it means that the Lord God will set in motion 7 years. At the end of seven years, the 1000 year millennium. The devil will be cast into the lake that burns with fire and brimstone. Then the judgment of the world. Everyone whose name is not written in the Book of Life will be cast into the lake that burns with fire and brimstone.

Then the Lord will reign forever.

Sin will never win. Sin and death will never happen again. Sin and death will never be seen again. The ungodly will never be seen again. The smoke of their torment will ascend forever. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. The worm will not die and the fire will not be quenched.

It will not be a day of rejoicing. It will be the saddest day.

So, if you intend to continue pursuing a loser, it is your choice.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

You can make a change but you have to do it in this life. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone.

The moment you close your eyes for the final time in this life, the deal is sealed. You get no do overs. No second chances. No reprieve. No forgiveness. No grace. No mercy.

Atheists and agnostics, unbelievers and sinners.

I do not think that it speaks for the entire Body of Christ. I think that it’s just terms of surrender like Guadalcanal in WW2, as Japan prematurely anticipated the capitulation of coalition forces before the battle was decided.

LGBT, do not get giddy. satan, do not get giddy.

As far as God is concerned, the battle was decided before the foundation of the world.

NEWS FLASH:

We win, devil loses.

here

There probably was a time when the fear of God served as an incentive to abstain from the sins of the flesh.

Since the day the dispensation of grace entered, the devil uses the same old tactics to trip up the believer.

In the OT, Numbers chapters 19-25 revealed the reason why the children of Israel were stopped in the plains of Moab.

Sexual immorality.

According to the Lord Jesus in the Book of Revelation, Jesus revealed the reason behind Israel’s failure. Balak, king of Moab, was in fear of the children of Israel because of the other nations that were wiped off of the face of the earth. The Moabites were so fearful that they got physically sick. To know that you are about to be killed would probably make anyone sick.

Balak asked for the services of a seer. The double agent, Balaam. Balak paid a hefty diviner’s fee to get Balaam to get the God of heaven to curse the children of Israel. God told the prophet that He cannot reverse the blessing. Not that God would reverse it because a deeper reason as to why God wouldn’t curse Israel is before Him.

The Seed (the Lord Jesus) was determined by the plan and purpose of God to come through Abraham.

To curse the children of Abraham would mean the end of the plan of God to send the Seed to save man. Below this is the fact that the Lord, by His immutable counsel, blessed Abraham and God will not change His mind (Malachi 3:6).

To further pervert man, sexual immorality is the one thing that was used in an attempt to pervert the promise of the Seed as spoken by the Lord in Genesis 3:15.

Sexual perversion among pastors is still a major issue. More than ever, it is being addressed, but not regularly. It’s only when we read about another pastor falling into Secret and Overt Sexual Sins that we start talking about it.

In most of Paul’s writings, we see that he addressed it regularly.

Notice what he said in Ephesians 5:3-7 “But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.

For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.

Therefore do not be partakers with them.” 

The word “fornication, fornicator.” It means “whoremonger.”

Pathetically, pastors that are not disciplined in their private lives, will be exposed publicly.

The combination of pastoral whoredom and parishioner whores is still wreaking havoc in the church.

Just because there are other subjects to deal with, if we fail to keep a watch in this area, we will get into trouble.

Jesus said in Matthew 26:41, “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

If the disciples could fall asleep, there is no difference in falling into sexual sins. It is when we are not attentive to the moments of vulnerability that we fall into sin. Temptation comes at any time, however, it is when we are weak that temptation is at its strongest. The will to fight isn’t as potent. That’s why every opportunity of temptation is used to weaken your resistance.

Temptation is like a torture test.

Each drip is designed to break your will, where you just can’t resist that one hot looking man of woman. Sooner or later, if you are not careful, you will give in to this temptation and fall into sin. That’s why Jesus went to the place of prayer regularly. To avoid the place of falling into sin as a result of being tempted. The obedience He learned (see Hebrews 5:8 and Philippians 2:8), paid off and when it was time for Him to die, there would be no question about His resurrection.

The glory that He had before the foundation of the world would be restored to Him.

Just as Hebrews 12:2b said

“…who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

His obedience earned Him the name that is above every name, a seat at the right hand of God, and authority over everything in heaven, earth, and under the earth. Until all things are subdued and then the Father resumes as Lord of all according to 1 Corinthians 15.

There is no question about the ratio of men to women. Predominantly, more women are in church than men. Women are not the problem. Sexually immoral women are part of the problem. The combination of sexually immoral women and sexually immoral pastors raises the potential of a scandal. When it comes to scandals, it all started years ago when sexual inquisitiveness entered people at an early age.

For people, being married to one person is not enough. “Extramarital affairs” is really illegal sex on the side.

When pastors and female parishioners commit adultery and or fornication, they risk being denied entrance into the kingdom. As Paul said by the Spirit of God, “fornicators” have no inheritance in the kingdom of God.

They must repent of sin. It is evident that the kind of whoremonger is that of the world, however, what about those that practice fornication as a believer?

Were they a believer in the first place? Were they genuinely saved?

As Paul said in 2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? — unless indeed you are disqualified.”

Here’s how you examine yourselves.

Paul said in Ephesians 4:17-24 “This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.”

If you are walking like the world, your salvation is suspect. If you are giving yourselves over to lewdness, your salvation is suspect.

If you are coming to church looking to “score,” your salvation is suspect.

Level one sexual addiction is porn, masturbation, adultery, fornication, prostitution.

It takes obedience, faith to implement or apply the Word of God, and courage to abstain from sexual immorality.

Sack time with Sister Suzy-Q is the staircase to hell. Sack time with a preacher is not worth going to hell over.

That’s what people do not think would happen. That when a person commits sexual sins, they are still going to heaven.

Read carefully 1 John 2:15-17. And read Ephesians 5:3-7.

Matthew 7:21-23, Revelation 21:8, and Hebrews 13:4, while you are at it.

Hell is full of people that never repented of sexual immorality. They never judged themselves.

If you are a pulpit whoremonger or a parishioner whore, the Lord offers forgiveness when you repent.

There is no need to turn the house of prayer into a gentlemen’s club.

imagesSome women lust for men just as much as some men lust for women.

However, it’s deeper than that.

Some women lust for the pastor as much as some pastors lust for women in the house of worship.

In the church, there are many women looking for “love.”

This is code for “sex.”

Many will not own up to it, nor admit it, but this is the bottom line.

Pun intended.

Few women know how to avoid a good looking single or married pastor. Even when the pastor is walking in the Word to maintain his sanctification, there’s some un-sanctified women that will cross the line.

Younger women should learn well from sanctified women of God how to avoid the pitfalls of pastoral sexual immorality with congregants.

I’ve seen it happen to a man of God. A seductress came in and wrecked his home and church. Because of unbridled lust in his heart, he succumbed to an evil woman, and the rest was history.

In almost every generation, we hear of horrid stories of pastoral sexual misconduct but few of us look at the other side.

The mistress covertly comes and goes. Nothing is hardly ever mentioned because sometimes the woman is made out to be the victim. As pure as heaven. However, if you look closely in the Scriptures, you will see that the book of Proverbs uncovers several kinds of wicked women.

Immoral,

seductress,

crafty harlot,

loud and rebellious,

boisterous,

evil/wicked woman,

adulteress,

religious or form of godliness,

whore.

Their house is the staircase to hell, the Bible says. See Proverbs 5:5, 7:27.

Here is some very helpful information in the Word of God to help women avoid this danger that lurks in the flesh.

As in previous blogs, we know that pastors take advantage of emotionally unstable women. However, we must remain focused on this issue because of sin. The Lord Jesus lovingly confronted sexual sins among women when He was at Jacob’s well, when the woman that was caught in adultery was brought to Him, when Jesus cast seven devils out of Mary Magdalene, and another sinful woman that cried tears on the feet of Jesus and she wiped them away with her hair, for her sins were many.

In each instance, it wasn’t condemnation but Jesus was ministering to them to deliver them.

We all know that it’s not just the woman but the men with lust in their hearts.

Part of the mystique of women is their ability to make it seem like it’s not the way it looks.

Hence, the need to “beautify.”

The need for “makeup and false eye lashes and eye brows.”

The need to “nip and tuck.”

The need to “smooth it over.”

The need to “flatten the tummy, push up the cleavage, and firm up the backside.”

These things cover a multitude of faults and sins.

Pastor, this verse is for you.

Proverbs 6:25 “Do not lust after her beauty in your heart, nor let her allure you with her eyelids.”

Attire of a harlot does happen in church services, every Sunday. Praise and worship, prayer, preaching. It doesn’t matter. There is no fear of God before their eyes. If people were afraid of God, people would not do the things they do. And “saved” folk wouldn’t wear what they wear; like as if they were going to the club.

Proverbs 7:6-10 says “For at the window of my house I looked through my lattice, And saw among the simple, I perceived among the youths, a young man devoid of understanding, passing along the street near her corner; and he took the path to her house In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night. And there a woman met him, with the attire of a harlot, and a crafty heart.”

The opposite is modest apparel.

1 Peter 3:3-4 says this about wives, but it is also applicable to women in general. “Do not let your adornment be merely outward — arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel — rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.”

1 Timothy 2:8-10 says “I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works.”

Low cleavage body hugging dresses, tight pants, stilettos, sleeveless blouses, above the knee dresses is not “modest apparel.”

These things masks the reality and attracts the dogs in the house of worship.

You could always tell the kind of person they are by their conduct. No matter how pretty they look, their conduct is the reality. Look past the smooth words and you will see the real person emerge. Look past the beauty and you will never be deceived.

If some women would own up to it, the Lord could help them avoid the obvious. With single pastors it’s one thing. But a married pastor is a different story.

The ring on a pastor’s ring finger doesn’t mean much to the passive hunter looking to be a home and church wrecker. The shame is not too great. Let’s get past the shame and focus on what the Word says.

As a born again woman that loves the Lord, it is important that you grow in your love for the only Man that should be King in your heart.

The Lord Jesus Christ.

THE LOVE FOR GOD

In Luke 10:27, Jesus said “So he answered and said, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’”

Jesus was quoting from Deuteronomy 6:4-6 that says “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.”

To abstain from lusting after being the pastor’s mistress, your love for God must be unadulterated.

Listen to what the Lord said about loving the Father.

John 14:15, 21 “If you love Me, keep My commandments.  He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

If you claim to love the Lord, a moment of lust throws your alleged love for God down the drain.

All sin is committed when person no longer loves the Lord. Doesn’t matter if you are saved or not. To cheat on God is the first step to all sin. It means that even though the Lord could satisfy the longing in your heart, you long for that which is forbidden. This is what happened to Eve in the Garden. Adam gave her what the Lord said but she looked for a way to have that which was forbidden.

It was a combination of the desire for power and the desire to have what you were told not to have.

For some women, even though they were told that they cannot have a married man, it isn’t enough. To accomplish the goal of having a married man you must stop loving the Lord.

To reverse this, you must get into the place of prayer and fasting to suppress the mind and body.

Then you must read some Scriptures to help you subdue the flesh.

MAKE NO PROVISIONS FOR THE FLESH

Romans 13:13-14 “Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”

ABSTAIN FROM FLESHLY LUSTS

1 Peter 2:11 “Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul,”

As a note, the word “abstain” means to “hold oneself out.” Or to hold out.

SUBDUE AND DOMINATE YOUR FLESH

1 Corinthians 9:26-27 “Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.”

FLEE FORNICATION

1 Corinthians 6:18-20 “Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

GUARD YOUR HEART

Proverbs 4:23 (AMP) “Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.”

GUARD YOUR EYES (WATCHING TV)

Psalm 101:3 (AMP) “I will set no base or wicked thing before my eyes. I hate the work of them who turn aside [from the right path]; it shall not grasp hold of me.”

KEEP YOURSELF

1 John 5:18-19 “We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.”

WALK IN THE SPIRIT

Galatians 5:16-17 “I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.”

SANCTIFICATION

1 Thessalonians 4:1-5 “Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God; for you know what commandments we gave you through the Lord Jesus.
For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God;”

SUBMIT TO GOD & RESIST THE DEVIL

James 4:7-8 “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” 

 

 

“A judge overturned Missouri’s ban on same-sex marriage on Wednesday in a ruling that could add the state to a growing list of those were same-sex marriages are legal. St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison, who heard arguments on Sept. 29, determined the law is unconstitutional.”

More sin will envelope this country.

It’s judicial activism to declare that a ban on SSM is unconstitutional.

Thanks be to God that judges can’t overturn the Lord, and His Word.

Homosexuality is a sin. Just like adultery, fornication, lying, bisexuality, extortioners, drunkenness, sodomy, covetous, murderers, and mischievous revilers will not inherit the kingdom of God (see 1 Corinthians 6:9-10).

Earthly judges will be overturned by the Judge of all the earth, the Lord Jesus Christ.

As I have said before, this did not catch God by surprise.

John 3:16 says, “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.”

While sinners are pursuing destroying this nation with more sin, God is still stretching out His hand to man through His Son.

While man runs from God, while they have blood running warm in their veins, and while they have air in their lungs, unrepentant man has a chance to reconsider their wicked ways.

That’s why it is important for the true church to keep the faith in Christ. Preach the gospel to all the world, and pray that they would turn from sin before death seals their fate.

The course of this world is set by the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience. Those that follow the ways of the wicked one must repent. Those that refuse to repent have been condemned already (see John 3:18-19). They can come out of their own condemnation when they come to the light of the glorious gospel.

As far as these judges are concerned, it is clear that sin is more important than righteousness.

Proverbs 18:5 says, “It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, or to overthrow the righteous in judgment.”

The ban of SSM was from the righteous. A judge overturns the will of the righteous in a show of partiality to the wicked.

“It is not good.”

Most people know that when unmarried couples engage in sex, the risks of STDs is there. With the sin of homosexuality, it’s common knowledge that STDs will happen. Nobody pays any attention to the the fact that sin brings forth death. As smart and intelligent as these judges are, it seems to all of us that no one is really concerned about the fact that the God of all the earth will pour out His judgment on sin.

And that consequential judgment comes when sin is committed.

God will not let the guilty go unpunished.

Judges that pervert the right ways of the Lord are not exempt.

Judges, out of all people, should know that when you are convicted of a crime, the punishment must be meted out.

These judges are doing the opposite.

They ignore the judgment that is to come in eternity so that people on earth could pursue sinful pleasure on earth.

Hence, the Judge of all the earth will now issue the punishment that men and women deserve for ignoring the Bible.

Judges are lawyers. So when they deal with law, they know what the law says. These lawyers spent thousands of dollars on learning the law. They are experts at crafting stories and asking questions to either smoke screen the truth or to get the truth.

There is no smoke screen with the Word of God.

The Bible said “The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

They say that crime doesn’t pay.

The Bible says “The wages of sin is death…”

Sin’s wages is death.

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

Whether you are an agnostic or an atheist, even they believe death is coming. The thing that they deliberately ignore is the Judge of all the earth.

You can ignore God all you want, He is not going to go away. And the judgment is not going to go away either.

So if death is true on one hand, judgment is true on the other.

So the only way out of judgment is repentance. The only way to avoid judgment is to ask the Lord for forgiveness of sins. To be born again by the Holy Spirit.

More activist judges will declare bans of SSM unconstitutional. More states will permit SSM. Eventually, the US Constitution will legalize SSM. The church will continue to pray to the God of heaven and earth. The church will continue to be faithful to the Lord of all the earth. The people of the Lord will continue to be a shining light for people in darkness. As long as the Lord tarries, the people of God will be the preserving salt in the earth.

The heart of deceitful and desperately wicked men and women will insist of their evil ways, but as the Bible says, the Lord will come with ten thousands of His saints to execute judgment on the earth. That will be a terrible day because God is gracious to man but His grace has an end date.

“Behold now is acceptable time. Behold now is the day of salvation.”

“How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?”

When the Lord sends His Son, it’s game over.

 

3160-1

Every Sunday, pastors are sexually challenged when a smoking hot looking woman comes to church.

Let me qualify something.

Not every woman is lurking to bring down a pastor.

So if you are a holy woman of God, this is not about you. Just like there are unholy pastors in the pulpits, there are unholy women in the pews.

Just as there is lust in the heart of the pastor, there is lust in the heart of certain women.

But there is the holy man of God that read certain unholy women and they deliberately avoid them.

There is really no avoiding or prohibiting certain women from entering the sanctuary. But as a pastor, you can exercise judgment and deploy specific safe guards so that even the slightest hint of sexual attraction is avoided.

Additionally, women do look for “counseling from male pastors.

Each pastor is left up to use their judgment, however, I do not counsel women alone. My wife or my daughter is with me at all times should a woman need counseling. Better yet, I let my wife counsel the women and that ends it. Men should counsel men and women should counsel women. It’s as simple as that.

I do not put myself in compromising situations.

It’s that simple.

Situations will occur when the pastor moves from behind his desk, touch hands, lock lips, then lock hips.

When Joseph was placed in the pit by his brothers, if only they knew what was ahead for Joseph. Obviously, when it comes to the plans and purposes of God that is placed in righteous men, the inevitable test to be faithful will come.

Potiphar’s wife had lust in her heart.

Perhaps her husband deliberately withheld himself sexually from her. Maybe Potiphar had erectile dysfunction, commonly called ED. Perhaps he didn’t like or love his wife any more and sex was avoided. Or, he had too much work to do to pay attention to her needs. Or Potiphar was playing with someone else in adultery.

It very well could be that Potiphar’s wife just had an overdose of demanding male attention.

Men are not the only ones that have a lust problem.

In the Garden of Eden, Eve was the first to develop lust in the heart. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil was a two pronged temptation.

The lust for power and the lust to have what is prohibited.

It probably frustrated Eve that Adam said “No.” That’s when the devil came, started with a half truth, then an outright lie, and Eve had all of the counter information that she needed to proceed.

Adam was given the Word and he remained faithful, up to a point. There is no question in my mind that Adam had a question about the tree but he remained true until Eve ate of the tree first and observed that nothing happened.

After Adam ate, the deal was sealed.

Sadly, there are women that make elaborate plans to snare a powerful man.

As Dr. Betty Price stated in her book, “A Warning To Ministers, Their Wives, And Their Mistresses,” after a mistress had a man of God sexually, the power that they thought they had seen in the pulpit is gone. That sense of “filth” birthed out of sinning against God and the shame floods your soul.

But you suppress this because now you want to continue in a false relationship.

To be rejected after you offered up yourself to a man of God would be too much to bear.

All the things she observed in that pastor while watching him in the pulpit. The “anointing.” The great words and personality, the eye contact. His baby faced looks. The charming attention he gave you after church was too much to bypass.

A soul tie took place that is reserved for married couples according to Genesis 2:24.

However, there is a perverted soul tie that takes place.

In 1 Corinthians 6:16, Paul said “Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.”

Even when a man and a harlot engage in sexual intercourse, the principle is still the same. They become one flesh.

Is it no wonder that a holy man of God avoids the church harlot?

A very spiritual man of God that prays, and seeks the face of God will see, in an instant, what kind of woman approaches him. A holy man of God will hear the Holy Spirit and be on the lookout for anyone that is not of God.

A married man of God that loves his wife but loves God more than he loves his wife will know what to look for. That’s because the moment he departs from his consecration, he knows that it is over.

The Scriptures reveal the kind of woman to avoid. The book of Proverbs is the Book of Wisdom. Predominantly, it’s a Men’s Meeting Book. Women could learn from the book of Proverbs. However, it was written to men. The first 7 to eight chapters reveal the kinds of women a holy man of God must avoid.

To refuse this wisdom is foolishness to him and he will never escape the shame.

Proverbs 1:7 says “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

A man of God is afraid to sin against God. It is there that you begin to have knowledge. Men that deliberately sin against God is not afraid of God.

If you wonder why a man is avoiding you it’s because he is afraid of God. He has developed a healthy fear of God where he would not endanger his relationship with God. Any man could preach in sin. Any man could even pray and be in sin. But you can’t be in the light as He is in the light if you fellowship with sin.

1 John 1:5-7 says “This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 

But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

For a man of God to be attracted to you, cross lines to get to your hot flesh, is just a fast way to the hottest place created for the devil and his angels.

The door step to hell is the bedroom of a harlot.

If you are wondering why a man of God is avoiding you is because he could smell the smoke of hell ascend from the pit of hell. The sulfuric smell that you are trying to mask with all your perfumes isn’t working.

Hell in his heart and hell in your bedroom. Yes, that’s what he is avoiding.

Revelation 21:8 says “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

He is avoiding……

The immoral and seductive woman.

Proverbs 2:15-19

“And who are devious in their paths; To deliver you from the immoral woman, From the seductress who flatters with her words, Who forsakes the companion of her youth, And forgets the covenant of her God.

For her house leads down to death, And her paths to the dead; None who go to her return, Nor do they regain the paths of life —“

Proverbs 5:3-6 

“For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil; But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two- edged sword. Her feet go down to death, Her steps lay hold of hell. Lest you ponder her path of life —

Her ways are unstable; You do not know them.”

The only remedy is verse 8. 

“Remove your way far from her, And do not go near the door of her house,”

That’s how you avoid the immoral seductress.

When she invites you to her house, remove your way far from her and do not go near the door of her house.

Proverbs 5:20-23 says

“For why should you, my son, be enraptured by an immoral woman, And be embraced in the arms of a seductress? For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, And He ponders all his paths.

His own iniquities entrap the wicked man, And he is caught in the cords of his sin. He shall die for lack of instruction, And in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.”

The pastor is avoiding you because he doesn’t want to go to hell with you.

If there is some other reason why he is avoiding you, if you are a woman, if the pastor is married, approach his wife. If the pastor is single, approach an elderly lady. In times like these, it is best to use wisdom so that the hint of sin is avoided.

However, if you are a church harlot or temple prostitute, wonder no more about why a pastor is deliberately avoiding you.

Brittany Maynard – 29. Lauren Hill – 22.

Just a couple of young vibrant persons, with a bad break in life with terminal cancer.

Brittany Maynard decided to end her life by assisted suicide. She was 29.

Lauren Hill. She is still alive. With inoperable cancer, a tumor, the size of a lemon on her brain, has just a few weeks to live.

Lauren Hill lived her dream of scoring a basket while playing basketball for her team. Very commendable because it takes courage and will power to overcome the obstacles to play a physically demanding sport.

There are many persons with terminal illnesses.

My sister had a terminal illness.

Spindle Cell Sarcoma.

She went home to be with the Lord on June 18, 2013. The day before my wedding anniversary.

Death is cruel. It cuts short lives that were meant to live. Some of us are bold enough to ask the right questions.

Why does man have to die?

If you look at all the books in the world, only one Book of books has the answer.

I understand that there are many agnostics who is a person who “believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God.”

In other words, sarcastically, this person chooses a “safe” position, just in case an agnostic happens to change their mind.

Everyone believes in something.

An agnostic believes that they are going to die.

Why?

Because everybody must go this way. The difference is that an agnostic doesn’t believe in the existence of God and an agnostic claims no disbelief in God. But agnostics know that they are going to die.

Where did death come from?

You see, avoiding the place where the answer is found is the agnostics avoidable defense.

The answer is in the Bible.

Atheists are a different brand.

An atheist is “a person who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of God or gods.”

Even atheists believe that they are going to die.

It’s amazing but not surprising that both camps will admit that death is inevitable. However, it’s stunning to realize that an agnostic and an atheist refuse to consider the only answer to these two questions.

So if a person has the capacity to believe, Who’d you think put it there?

Certainly not you.

Believing is an act of faith.

Agnostics and atheists wants indisputable fact or undeniable evidence. No guess work. No assumption.

Just the facts.

Just a side note.

It is my understanding that neither Brittany Maynard or Lauren Hill are agnostics or atheists. I could be wrong and I will be corrected should additional information becomes available. But for the rest of our readers, these two dangerous positions is a clear indication that is extremely risky.

The Bible is God’s Word given directly to man. The Bible gives us specific information about why we were created. Why man decided to become hostile to God and God’s remedy to save man from sin and death. What man has done over the years is reduced the power of God’s offer of salvation into a “worthless religion” while remaining in a sinful condition.

In other words, man wants to make his own rules about God while committing sin with impunity.

All you have to do is look at our justice system.

When a crime is committed, when that person is caught, they must pay a penalty.

Where did morals come from? 

Morals came from God.

The judicial system gives us a glimpse of the fact that crimes committed requires justice.

Where does justice come from?

Justice came from God.

When a crime is committed and it goes unpunished, many people are outraged that crimes go unpunished. When a murder is committed, and the murderer goes free, there is outrage.

Who first said that murder is a crime?

God said it.

“You shall not murder.”

So if there is no God, or there is a disbelief of His existence, or you claim no disbelief or belief in God, then is murder permitted?

How do we know that murder is wrong?

We get that murder is wrong from God.

For you, you will still say that this still disproves or at the least, brings doubt about the existence of God.

Most look for God to step out on the stage and prove His existence to end all questions.

Even when Adam and Eve were in the Garden with God, they didn’t believe His Word. Even when Jesus walked the earth, having came from God, they didn’t believe His Word. Even with creation looking at us everyday and testifying by its existence, people today will refuse to believe.

Even with a thousand arguments from the Bible, people will refuse to believe. But these same people believe that believing in God is a waste of time. Yet, they all believe they are going to die. Then why fight illness? Why seek medical attention if you are in an accident? Why ask the doctor to help you?

According to the Scriptures (Genesis chapters 1, 2, and 3), death came into this world because of Adam’s transgression. Adam was told not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. satan, entered a subtle serpent, used the voice of that serpent, and beguiled Eve. Eve ate of that tree first and then Adam. Their eyes were opened. God searched for them. Adam and Eve confessed to their crime and God pronounced judgment upon them.

They must die.

However, God pronounced a remedy for man’s sin. The Lord God would send His Son with sinless blood, to live a perfect life, be betrayed by one of His disciples, be crucified, and be raised from the dead on the third day. God would give man one life to live but within that timeframe, he must repent of sin, ask God for forgiveness, and be born again.

We are not allowed any second chances.

After we die, the deal is sealed.

Many think that this is not fair.

In Ezekiel, the children of Israel told God that it was not fair (see Ezekiel 18). But look at the Scriptures for yourselves.

“Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ Hear now, O house of Israel, is it not My way which is fair, and your ways which are not fair? When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and dies in it, it is because of the iniquity which he has done that he dies.

Again, when a wicked man turns away from the wickedness which he committed, and does what is lawful and right, he preserves himself alive. Because he considers and turns away from all the transgressions which he committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die. Yet the house of Israel says, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ O house of Israel, is it not My ways which are fair, and your ways which are not fair?”

That’s the problem with agnostics and atheists, and unbelievers that believe in the existence of God.

They all believe that their way is fair and God’s way is unfair.

It’s fair to live in sin and be hostile towards God. It’s fair to live in sin and do as we please and be allowed to live forever in sin.

No, it’s not fair.

We were not created by God to do as we please but to do as He please. It’s our ways that is unfair, unjust, and unrighteous.

But through it all, God gave us mercy and grace. He sent His Son to die for our sins so that we can live for His pleasure.

The death of one and inevitably, the death of the other is unfortunate. However, Jesus is the only Way out of death.

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

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

If we know that we will not avoid death, what makes us think that we will avoid the judgment?

If you have a terminal illness, make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life. Repent of your sins and ask the Lord to have mercy on you and forgive your sins.

The first thing that I did was make sure that my sister repented of sin and is a child of God. It made no sense going the way of all the earth, we cry and not find her there before the Lord. If you still have doubts about the existence of God, look up at the stars in the sky. Look at the sun and the moon. Look at the birds and the trees. Look at the mountains and the clouds. Look at yourself in the mirror.

Do you want proof of God’s existence?

Look at this list.

You still don’t believe?

Just look at your watch. The clock is ticking. Depending upon your fate, some of us may not have much time. Death happens to us all. No one escapes death.

Why risk it because of your belief that there is no God?

If it is a risk that you are willing to take and accept, there is no amount of preaching that will help you, but I pray you change your mind and reconsider.
