The LGBTQ Insanity: Accept Or Reject (Part 2)

People get mad all the time.

Road rage. People stepping on your toe…….repeatedly and on purpose. Cutting in front of you on line. Calling you names that hurt.

Calling the sexually immoral “insane” doesn’t help, you might say.

Look at what you’re practicing. Ask yourself.

Is it normal or abnormal

Risking acquiring STDs and increase the chances with multiple sexual partners of acquiring an incurable disease? Ask yourself. Is this normal or abnormal?

My point isn’t to make you angry but to get you to see that what you’re practicing is irrational and insane.

Additionally, getting sane people to accept insanity isn’t good either.

Anger is “a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility.”

But what does anger have to to with insanity?

When someone rejects who you are and what you do, or tell you that what you’ve said or done is wrong or insane, it’s very easy for anyone involved in sin to get very angry.

When it comes to sin, humans are territorial.

When anyone makes a declaration that what a person is doing is wrong, it’s very instinctive to become defensive. So with every thing they have, they will use every available means to vilify and silence any voice that’s against the sin of homosexuality, bisexuality, transvestism, transgenderism, queer, gay, and other vile sins.

The war is about refusing and fighting against sanity.

Remember. Sanity means healthy.

Insanity means unhealthy.

Why do people involved in homosexuality fight against sanity?

Sexual sins is a preference, not a class of people, and it’s not a race of people.

Sexual sins is a choice.

In Genesis 4, Abel brought to the Lord an acceptable offering. A lamb. Cain chose to bring fruit from the ground as his offering to the Lord. The Lord accepted Abel’s offering because this is what the Lord required.

Cain’s offering was rejected because he brought an offering that wasn’t what the Lord required.

Genesis 4:2-7 (NKJV Strong’s) “Then she bore again, this time his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord.

Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat.

And the Lord respected Abel and his offering, but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell.

So the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen?

If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”

Cain was angry (furious).

But look at what Cain brought to the Lord.

Fruit from the ground that’s worth far less than a lamb.

But notice also that even though the Lord rejected Cain’s offering, the Lord asked Cain why was he angry. Whenever the Lord asks a question, He’s not looking for information because the Lord is omniscient. The purpose of the question is to get you to see yourself.

Cain, no doubt, worked very hard to impress the Lord and it didn’t work out so well. Enraged, his countenance or his face fell. In other words, Cain was happy and now, he’s steaming white hot mad at God.

Cain went to great lengths to make his offering presentable.

It’s like you’ve spent a lot of time in the beauty parlor and everything you’ve done wasn’t enough.

But also note that the Lord gave Cain the answer.

Sin is always at the heart of the issue.

An offering of the fruit of the ground cannot take away sin.

So Cain took his anger out on his brother.

Blood is what the Lord want but not the blood of his brother, Abel.

A lamb, sacrificed, takes away sin.

Leviticus 17:11 (NKJV Strong’s) “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.’

John 1:29 (NKJV Strong’s) “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”

Homosexuals are furious that you don’t accept their condition as normal.

Transgenders are furious that you don’t accept their surgical reassignment as normal.

It’s insane to bring to the Lord our condition of sin when the Lord Jesus gave His life to redeem ours, to be free from the guilt and power of sin.

We defiantly demand, with furious anger, that God and true believers of Jesus MUST “love” and they MUST accept our “fruit of the ground.”

We work for Jesus and it’s our job to put our lives on the line, shunning our reputation, to reach into the “fire” to pull many souls out of the flames of their sins before they fall into the eternal flames as punishment for shunning the salvation of the Lord.

Talk about rescuing people from the fire, notice this Scripture.

Jude 1:21-23 (NKJV Strong’s) “…keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.”

So the question to homosexuals is “Why do you get angry when the Lord desires to make you free from the guilt and power of sin?”

It’s irrational to be angry when a firefighter runs into a burning building to rescue you. In fact, many will say that it’s irrational for a firefighter to go into burning building. But a firefighter gets paid to put his life on the line to rescue people so they wouldn’t die.

What Jesus did for all man, He did FREE OF CHARGE.

What the Lord Jesus did for us can never be repaid for the debt we owe is beyond the calculation of price.

Sinless, perfect blood.

It’s irrational for the Lord God to send the Lord Jesus to die for the sin of the whole world so that we wouldn’t die in our sins………..uhuh…

Paul called this “The foolishness of God.”

God did something irrational and yes, insane to deliver us from our insanity.

God seen the insanity of man and did something we would consider to be irrational.

His divine love for man.

If God didn’t love us, He never would have sent His Son to die for our sin to free us. Jesus didn’t die for sin so we could continue in sin, He died and was resurrected from the dead as a demonstration of God’s love to deliver us from the guilt and power of sin.

Which is why the world hates the Lord without a cause.

The love of sin keeps many people in the grip of sin.

John 15:25 (NKJV Strong’s) “But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’”

What did the Lord do to you that makes you angry at the Lord?

Is it because He said in His Word that homosexuality is an abomination (detestable/disgusting)?

The reason why it’s disgusting and detestable is that it violates the order that God established. This established order by the Lord is enforced by consequential judgment called STDs. It’s important to note that there’s nothing to get mad or angry over.

Just like if a person violates the law, is tried in court, is found guilty, is convicted of violating that law, they’re sentenced.

Lawlessness is insanity.

It’s mental insanity or mentally unhealthy.

It’s rational to teach people that it’s insane to commit sex acts with the same sex. Committing sex acts with a minor in either gender, is immoral, insanity, and irrational, as well as sex with animals.

Clearly, this is insane.

Sadly, insanity (unhealthy), is pushed to be normal but just because someone or a group of people make convincing arguments that sexual immorality is normal, it doesn’t postpone or prevent consequential judgment in the form of STDs from being acquired.

You don’t have to be steaming white hot mad at God. God didn’t do anything to you, but for you.

So don’t get mad or angry.

Be glad that the Lord sends His people to loving warn and admonish others not to participate in that which is insane to bring people back to sanity.

Prayer: Lord, I recognize that homosexuality is an abomination. It’s detestable and disgusting in Your sight. I believe that You’ve sent Your Son to deliver and to make me free of sin. Lord, I repent. I ask You to forgive and pardon me as You’ve said in Your Word. You’re merciful and full of grace and truth. Forgive me for being angry at You without a cause. Holy Spirit, make me a new creation in Christ. Give me strength. For in Jesus, you always cause me to triumph in Christ. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pastors & Porn. Why Am I Addicted?

It’s the secret sin that most male pastors are ashamed of, but it’s done because no one knows. Or so you thought.

Sexual immorality, especially with porn, is without question the stronghold of strongholds.

What’s the driving factor?

Lust in the heart. The desire to look at someone with lust.

The Lord Jesus revealed why men commit adultery.

Matthew 5:27-28 (NKJV) “You have heard that it was said to those of old, You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

The word “lust” from Strong’s Dictionary of Biblical Words mean…..g1937. ἐπιθυμέω epithymeō; from 1909 and 2372; to set the heart upon, i.e. long for (rightfully or otherwise): — covet, desire, would fain, lust (after).

To set the heart upon, to long for.

It takes less than a second for a man or woman to set their eyes on someone that they see.

The sexual attraction is so strong that if we’re not careful, looking to admire quickly deepens into look with the intent to lust, to set your heart upon the object.

To long to have him or her sexually.

2 Samuel 11:1-5 (NKJV) “It happened in the spring of the year, at the time when kings go out to battle, that David sent Joab and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the people of Ammon and besieged Rabbah.

But David remained at Jerusalem.

Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house.

And from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold.

So David sent and inquired about the woman.

And someone said, “Is this not Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?”

Then David sent messengers, and took her; and she came to him, and he lay with her, for she was cleansed from her impurity; and she returned to her house.

And the woman conceived; so she sent and told David, and said, “I am with child.”

So what really happened?

James 1:14-15 (NKJV) “But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.

Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.”

David did one thing. He stayed in Jerusalem. There’s a convincing reason that David stayed in Jerusalem.

Is it possible that David saw her and wanted to see her again? Only this time, to fulfill his lusts?

Is it possible that he knew that Bathsheba would be there? Is it possible that his timing was so perfect, that he knew? He had a bird’s eye view of where she would be.

Now Uriah was doing battle. How convenient.

At this point, David had five wives.

Proverbs 27:20 (NKJV) “Hell and Destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.”

David had lust in his heart. He set his heart upon the body of Bathsheba. He longed for the body of Bathsheba. He coveted Bathsheba’s body.

Long story short, David did exactly what the Lord Jesus said not to do.

“…But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

David committed adultery with her in his heart and set his possible preconceived plan in motion. Lust in his heart overwhelmed him. He slew Goliath, but lust in David’s heart was stronger than Goliath.

Here’s the reason.

According to Dr. Struthers, porn hijacks the brain.

Looking at women to lust after them hijacks the brain. When the man allows himself to be completely obsessed with lust, it’s for the purpose of self gratification.

The sexual “juices flow” where you must fulfill that lust in orgasmic pleasure. Where there is no fulfillment in orgasm, the lust is unfulfilled.

Within the confines of marriage, there’s no lust. Within the confines of marriage, orgasmic pleasure was designed by God, and commanded to be done in marriage.

Sex in marriage between one biological male one biological female is perfectly legal.

It’s when you have shifted your eyes in lust that sin is committed.

The conscience is pricked, but a man and woman knows how to suppress the conviction of sin.

Lust took David to a place where it cost him more that he’s willing to pay. Took him further than he’s willing to go.

Three sins were committed.

  1. Lust.
  2. Murder.

Exodus 20:13-14 (NKJV) “You shall not murder. “You shall not commit adultery.

3. You shall not covet.

Exodus 20:17 (NKJV) “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

Then the news.

Bathsheba was pregnant with David’s child. David thought about Uriah. If he could get Uriah to have sex with his wife, then all is covered. But Uriah was so loyal to David that he refused to even go home.

That didn’t work out so well for David.

Then David put Uriah on the frontline of the hottest battle where he knew Uriah couldn’t stay alive. The servant broke the news that Uriah died in battle. David thought he would be home free. He took Bathsheba in and all is covered.

Deep down, you kinda knew that God saw this before the world began.

It took Nathan the prophet to uncover the plot.

Psalm 51 is the “Adulterer’s Psalm.”

The addiction comes out of lust.

2 Samuel 12:9 (NKJV) “Why have you despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in His sight?”

To sin against God is to despise the commandment of the Lord.

To despise means to de-esteem, to ignore, regard with contempt.

A man after God’s own heart, ignored the commandment of the Lord in his heart.

David paid for his sin.

2 Samuel 12:11-15 (NKJV) “Thus says the LORD: ‘Behold, I will raise up adversity against you from your own house; and I will take your wives before your eyes and give them to your neighbor, and he shall lie with your wives in the sight of this sun.

For you did it secretly, but I will do this thing before all Israel, before the sun.'”

So David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD.”

And Nathan said to David, “The LORD also has put away your sin; you shall not die. However, because by this deed you have given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also who is born to you shall surely die.” Then Nathan departed to his house.

Did it take all that for David to recognized that he had sinned against the Lord?

Yes. The self delusion was that deep.

Pastor. If you don’t catch yourself, it’s just a matter of time.

As a deflective argument, people will accuse God of killing a child because David was the one that sinned against God. Why take it out on the child?

God is God. He does as it pleases Him.

But look at what happened.

The enemies heard that God was with David and David blew his testimony.

The enemies can now say that David and Israel isn’t as righteous as they claim to be.

Doesn’t this sound like today when a pastor commits adultery? The world brings a serious accusation against God and His people. Everyone is blamed. And then when we try to share the gospel to them, they reject it because we’ve disdained the very commandment that we claim to live by.

Plus, the child would have been viewed as an endorsement for such behavior.

Was Bathsheba raped? Did she resist? Did she fight off David and his men? Did she cry in the streets that what David had done was wrong? Because David is the king, could it be that she willingly submitted to the king to avoid making a scene? Or because she may not have known the law that both the male and female committing adultery are to be put to death?

Leviticus 20:10 (NKJV) “The man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, he who commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress, shall surely be put to death.”

It would be understandable if some of the women that had sexual immorality with these men also be exposed. Sadly, women are taken against their will. Deceived by men claiming to be of God. Then there’s women that will use it to their advantage and sue the sinning pastors for child support.

The Word is clear that pornography is lust. So why are you addicted?

Uncontrolled lust in the heart. Lust must be crucified and it was crucified on the cross when God laid on Him the iniquity of us all. Then we have to choose to crucify the lust in our heart. Paul said…….

Colossians 3:5-7 (NKJV) “Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.”

Romans 6:12-14 (NKJV) “Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”

Stop allowing porn to run your life. Do not let lust in your heart have dominion over you, for you are not under the law but under grace.

Sexual Immorality & Christianity

1 Corinthians 6:18 (NKJV) “Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.”

It’s not a one denominational or non denominational thing.

To assume that sexual immorality operates only in one place is not to be taken. Every denomination, and every non denomination may have been touched. From scandals among pastors, leaders, and parishioners, it’s a very sinful problem.

The reasons for sexual immorality among churches varies. One thing is certain, self control, a fruit of the Spirit in true believers, obedience to the Scriptures, accountability partners, and constantly watching every thing about you and your surroundings can stop sexual immorality from consuming you.

Is it possible?

It’s left up to you. The Lord God did everything that He’s going to do to redeem us. Even defeating the power and guilt of sin on the cross of Christ.

Your willingness to obey His Word is now required, demanded, and commanded. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil is constantly before us. We are one decision away from death or keeping our life.

Adam and Eve brought death into the world by disobeying the commandment of God.

Romans 5:12 (NKJV) “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned—”

Romans 5:19 (NKJV) “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.

Who and what are we willing to obey to keep sexual sins out of our lives? To what extent are we willing to go to close the door on sexual immorality?

For years, sexual immorality was a major part of my life. Lusting after the flesh. Gratifying myself for personal pleasure. I thought that I could have both, but I was deceiving myself. Watching porn and solo fantasy sex.

I was among many pastors, church leaders, and parishioners trapped in the dark world of pornography. It’s a secret. No one knew but myself, the devil that had me bound, and ultimately, God.

Hebrews 4:13 (NKJV) “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.”

When you can easily deceive yourself into thinking that you would not have to give an account, it’s very easy to sin.

Romans 1:18-19 (NKJV) “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.”

To suppress means to hold it down.

In order to sin, you have to overcome the conviction. You have to force your mind into thinking that you will not fall under the wrath of God, but it’s futile.

It’s a mindless wasted exercise to justify the love of sin in defiance of God’s commandments.

Sexual immorality became god in my life.

Exodus 20:3 says “You shall have no other gods before Me.”

Christ was last in my life. Anything that comes before God is not second. It’s last.

Matthew 22:36-40 (NKJV) “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

You can’t love the Lord and love sin at the same time. You have to make a decision because the decision determines destiny. Eternal destiny.

God competes with no one.

2 Timothy 3:4-5 (NKJV) “…lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.”

We have to decide whether or not the pleasures of this life becomes lord or the Lord of lords.

Luke 8:14 (NKJV) “Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity.”

In the parable of the sower, the Lord is teaching about where people are in relationship to Him. The only place where a believer is fruitful is when he’s on good ground producing good fruit.

The pleasures of this life brought no fruit to maturity. In other words, I was unfruitful (see John 15:1-8).

Whenever there’s sin, it’s a bad tree producing bad fruit.

There comes a point where I had to stop pretending that I was producing good fruit and accept the truth that I am a bad tree producing bad fruit.

This same mentality happens in every place of worship. We pretend to be holy, sanctified, righteous, and when we look deep inside us, we know that we’re a bad tree.

It’s easy to point the finger at other denominations and non denominations. Why? Because it takes the attention off of you. In self righteousness, we write about what they’ve done while we do our own thing in hypocrisy.

One of the greatest sermon that Jesus preached were to the spiritual leadership in Israel. Hypocrites. Serpents. Brood of vipers. Sepulchers. Blind guides. Fools and blind. Blind Pharisee.

Preachers today, most of them, are following the same pattern.

We hide behind our persona, our charismatic personality. In the eyesight of people, we could do no wrong. But before the Lord, every secret thing is before Him.

We have to understand that among wheat are tares. Among the righteous are those that give the appearance of righteousness. We say the right thing. SOMETIMES. But it’s just a matter of time before we let the cat out of the bag or that the Lord have had enough and exposes us for who and what we really are.

God embarrasses us because He is looking to redeem us if we’re willing to repent and turn from our wicked ways. He’s given so much time to repent. We take advantage of His grace, goodness, kindness, and love.

By staying in the place of a perverted pretender, we slap aside His mercy because the enjoyment of pleasure consumes us. Totally obsessed with sexual immorality, we allow ourselves to be fully possessed by demons.

We switch from pretending to be a man of God to a man predominantly of satan.

We don’t think that we would die. We honestly think that we will live forever, but the clock never lies. God, at anytime could snatch our breath. But the thought of the pleasure overrides the thought of being judged for sexual sins.

The other pastor, church leader, parishioner will die. But not me.

Like a fool, our pretending comes to an abrupt end.

One way or another.

That’s why sexual immorality in Christianity goes on. There’s no fear of God, no fear of His wrath. No fear of His judgment.

Until this fear returns, Christianity will continue to have blemishes, spots, wrinkles.

But not for long.

Many will catch themselves like the prodigal son and receive the chastising correction as sons. This correction is necessary and painful.

Then there’s the tares.

The poisonous ones among the wheat. They will be gathered, bundled and burned.

2 Corinthians 6:14 – 7:1 (NKJV) Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will dwell in them
And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.”
Therefore
“Come out from among them
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean,
And I will receive you.”
“I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the LORD Almighty.”
Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

Molech. The king of Abortion. (Part 1).

Molech. The king of Abortion. THIS IS PART 1 of a 4 part series.

The origins of out of the womb abortion predates the Israeli nation. God is judging the Canaanite nations for its sins, including casting their babies in the fire in worship to Molech. Modern day abortion is now inside the mother’s womb.

The coat hangers was the back alley way of ending the life of a baby. Today, medicine murder occurs. In the United States, from 1973, 63 million lives were taken. The male and female engaged in fornication and adultery.

This is a sin before God. Just because man makes it legal, it doesn’t mean that it’s moral. The Scriptures is final authority, and God will judge the secrets of men’s hearts by the Lord Jesus Christ.

Some of you may be offended, but the only reason why people are offended is because the truth from God offends. For years, has man progressed with medicine, and the means of killing have increased.

Man has devised many ways to kill a person. Man has figured out how to kill a baby from inside the safest place for a child that’s conceived. The womb. But centuries ago, they would have to wait until the child is born, and then out right murder the child. God has put in the conscience of every person, His commandments.

And man’s conscience is offended when he violates God’s commandments. So, man need to find a way to make it legal so that the truth no longer afflicts the conscience. But no law of man could ever lessen the conviction of sin in the conscience.

In the land of Canaan, they’ve devised a way to kill babies. With the depraved thinking of man, it’s easy to come up with ways to make killing acceptable. But the Canaanites were crude and cruel. Idol worship comes from devils.

1 Timothy 4:1-2 (NKJV) “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron…” 

Deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons isn’t something that’s new. Seducing spirits and doctrines of devils came about as man refused to worship the true and living God.

The word “Deceiving” or “seduced” comes from Strong’s Dictionary of Biblical Words, planos; roving as a tramp, i.e. (by implication) an impostor or misleader; — deceiver, seducing. Any further Greek or Hebrew references will be from Strong’s Dictionary of Biblical Words or Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words, or Biblical Words.

To deceive is to mislead and to take you in the wrong direction. To have an “idea or impression.”

So deceiving spirits and teachings of demons is the point. Now notice the word “doctrines.”  it means instruction (the function or the information): — learning, teaching.

It may seem much, but it’s necessary to read the Scriptures to get as much Scriptural background as possible on the subject of abortion because everything has an origin.

Leviticus 18:21 (NKJV) “And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the LORD.”

Deuteronomy 18:9-14 (NKJV) “When you come into the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD, and because of these abominations the LORD your God drives them out from before you. You shall be blameless before the LORD your God. For these nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the LORD your God has not appointed such for you.”

2 Kings 16:1-4 (NKJV) “In the seventeenth year of Pekah the son of Remaliah, Ahaz the son of Jotham, king of Judah, began to reign. Ahaz was twenty years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem; and he did not do what was right in the sight of the LORD his God, as his father David had done. But he walked in the way of the kings of Israel; indeed he made his son pass through the fire, according to the abominations of the nations whom the LORD had cast out from before the children of Israel. And he sacrificed and burned incense on the high places, on the hills, and under every green tree.”

2 Kings 17:5-24 (NKJV) “Now the king of Assyria went throughout all the land, and went up to Samaria and besieged it for three years. In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria took Samaria and carried Israel away to Assyria, and placed them in Halah and by the Habor, the River of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.

For so it was that the children of Israel had sinned against the LORD their God, who had brought them up out of the land of Egypt, from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and they had feared other gods, and had walked in the statutes of the nations whom the LORD had cast out from before the children of Israel, and of the kings of Israel, which they had made.

Also the children of Israel secretly did against the LORD their God things that were not right, and they built for themselves high places in all their cities, from watchtower to fortified city. They set up for themselves sacred pillars and wooden images on every high hill and under every green tree.

There they burned incense on all the high places, like the nations whom the LORD had carried away before them; and they did wicked things to provoke the LORD to anger, for they served idols, of which the LORD had said to them, “You shall not do this thing.”

Yet the LORD testified against Israel and against Judah, by all of His prophets, every seer, saying, “Turn from your evil ways, and keep My commandments and My statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by My servants the prophets.”

Nevertheless they would not hear, but stiffened their necks, like the necks of their fathers, who did not believe in the LORD their God. And they rejected His statutes and His covenant that He had made with their fathers, and His testimonies which He had testified against them; they followed idols, became idolaters, and went after the nations who were all around them, concerning whom the LORD had charged them that they should not do like them.

So they left all the commandments of the LORD their God, made for themselves a molded image and two calves, made a wooden image and worshiped all the host of heaven, and served Baal. And they caused their sons and daughters to pass through the fire, practiced witchcraft and soothsaying, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke Him to anger.

Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them from His sight; there was none left but the tribe of Judah alone. Also Judah did not keep the commandments of the LORD their God, but walked in the statutes of Israel which they made.

And the LORD rejected all the descendants of Israel, afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of plunderers, until He had cast them from His sight. For He tore Israel from the house of David, and they made Jeroboam the son of Nebat king.

Then Jeroboam drove Israel from following the LORD, and made them commit a great sin. For the children of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he did; they did not depart from them, until the LORD removed Israel out of His sight, as He had said by all His servants the prophets. So Israel was carried away from their own land to Assyria, as it is to this day.”

This is the conclusion of part one. We are laying the foundation for the origins of abortion.

Part 2 is next.

Sexual Abuse: It Won’t Be The Last

Back in 2009, when the Lord almost exposed my porn habit, I’ve repented from the sin of lusting after the flesh. It was the mercy of God that prevented my life from being snatched by God in sin.

Then I did a study on why I did what I’ve done. After this study, the Lord constantly exposed preacher after preacher.

Then I looked, and understood that “It won’t be the last.”

We don’t take pleasure in the exposure of a church or denomination, but when the fear of the Lord is missing, it’s very easy to allow and excuse sin.

Ecclesiastes 8:11-13 (NKJV) “Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

Though a sinner does evil a hundred times, and his days are prolonged, yet I surely know that it will be well with those who fear God, who fear before Him. But it will not be well with the wicked; nor will he prolong his days, which are as a shadow, because he does not fear before God.”

1 Corinthians 10:12 (NKJV) “Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.”

The Southern Baptist Church on paper, looked like a stellar denomination. Recently it fought against CRT (critical race theory), homosexuality, abortion, and other issues.

It’s the largest Protestant denomination with 14 million members.

But like the Catholics, the Jehovah’s Witness, and certain non denominational Word of Faith places, sexual scandals emerged. Among their highest leaders, they’ve kept sexual abuse a secret……………….for 20 plus years.

You think that they Lord would keep it a secret?

If you take a look at The Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, 5 of 7 churches had issues. The church at Thyatira. A pastor allowed a female to teach sexual immorality. She called herself a prophetess. The Lord Jesus called her Jezebel.

In the OT, Jezebel from the Sidonians, was married to Ahab.

1 Kings 16:30-31 (NKJV) “Now Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD, more than all who were before him. And it came to pass, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took as wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians; and he went and served Baal and worshiped him.”

If you read about the history of Ethbaal, he took power by violence. He killed his rival and assumed power. She learned her lesson well from her father that to keep power, you use death and sexual immorality.

1 Kings 18:17-19 (NKJV)

Then it happened, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said to him, “Is that you, O troubler of Israel?” And he answered, “I have not troubled Israel, but you and your father’s house have, in that you have forsaken the commandments of the LORD and have followed the Baals. Now therefore, send and gather all Israel to me on Mount Carmel, the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal, and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”

Who is Asherah?

Glad you’ve asked.

Asherah is a Canaanite goddess.

According to Smith’s Bible Dictionary, “Asherah- means “straight.” Idol of the Phoenician goddess (2 Kings 21:7; 23:6). Grove in the KJV. Perhaps a head or bust on a straight pillar.”

Make no mistake about it that almost anytime you deal with goddesses, sexual immorality is very close, if not, at the top of the list when it comes to idol worship.

I’ve often wondered what made idol worship so attractive?

Why would I offer sacrifice to a god or goddess?

There has to be an incentive. An attractive incentive.

2 Kings 23:4-7 (NKJV)

“And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, the priests of the second order, and the doorkeepers, to bring out of the temple of the LORD all the articles that were made for Baal, for Asherah, and for all the host of heaven; and he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel.

Then he removed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense on the high places in the cities of Judah and in the places all around Jerusalem, and those who burned incense to Baal, to the sun, to the moon, to the constellations, and to all the host of heaven.

And he brought out the wooden image from the house of the LORD, to the Brook Kidron outside Jerusalem, burned it at the Brook Kidron and ground it to ashes, and threw its ashes on the graves of the common people.

Then he tore down the ritual booths of the perverted persons that were in the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the wooden image.”

Now when you see Asherah again in another portion of Scripture, the rule is, you let Scripture interpret Scripture.

In this passage, Josiah is the king that is bringing reform to the nation of Israel. It was Josiah that tore down everything that wasn’t of the Lord.

But did you take note of the “booths?’

We all know that all you have to do is put two and two together. In this case, homosexuals were in these “booths.”

Back in the day, in NYC, on 42 Street and in other areas around it, there would be “booths.” Peep shows. All sorts of sexual immorality would be in these places.

But notice that in the Scripture, women would weave hangings for “wooden image.” Now you’re left up to imagine what these wooden images were.

Imagine no further. They were of a graphic sexual nature. Phallic symbol.

The reason I’m bringing these Scriptures to light is to show the interconnectedness of sexual immorality. That even in the house of worship, there is no ‘worship that’s in “spirit and in truth.”

Hidden in these places is the depths of sexual immorality.

Three things are happening.

ONE………. God is exposing the earth with the light of truth.

Luke 12:2 (NKJV) “For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.”

Hebrews 4:13 (NKJV) “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.”

Romans 14:10-12 (NKJV) “But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written:
“As I live, says the LORD,
Every knee shall bow to Me,
And every tongue shall confess to God.”

“So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.”

Our hidden secrets will be exposed.

Romans 2:12-16 (NKJV) “For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law (for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God,

but the doers of the law will be justified; for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts,

their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them) in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.”

Psalms 90:7-8 (NKJV) “For we have been consumed by Your anger,
And by Your wrath we are terrified.
You have set our iniquities before You,
Our secret sins in the light of Your countenance.”

So what are we to do?

Ephesians 5:8-14 (NKJV) “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.

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.

Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”

TWO………He’s cleansing His church.

Ephesians 5:26-27 (NKJV) “…that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.”

The cleansing is happening before our eyes.

THREE………The tares are exposed among the wheat.

Matthew 13:24-30 (NKJV) “Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared.

So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’

The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers,

“First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”‘”

Why is this happening?

The Lord is coming soon.

Finally, Matthew 7:21-23 (NKJV) “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’

And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

It’s not just the SBC. The Lord is searching everything. Remember, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of those whose hearts are loyal to Him.”

Revelation 22:12-15 (NKJV) “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.”

Tampax In Boys Bathrooms In OR & The CA Governor Says Men CAN’T Get Pregnant

Matthew 19:4 (NKJV) “And He (Jesus) answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’

In the history of man, there’s NEVER been one male that ever menstruated.

In the history of women, there’s NEVER been one female that inseminated another woman.

It’s a biological impossibility for both.

Years ago, this would be preposterous for boys to even think that men could menstruate. It would be taboo for men to talk among women about a woman’s “cycle.”

Most young men that marry young never heard of the “cycle” until after marriage. The honeymoon would be nice. And then you find out that your wife is having menstrual cramps. In some cases, almost unbearable, and you can’t have sex because she’s having her period.

All of a sudden, a new dimension of the female anatomy comes into play.

You might be offended, but 5 decades ago, when boys would be boys, we would call other boys “sissies.” We would even joke about tampons. And then we would fight to prove that we weren’t sissies wearing tampons.

Even when your manhood was challenged, some of us had no clue about tampons. But today, boys and men are offended. In fact, a discrimination lawsuit may be filed against you because of your belief that as a male, you identify as a woman.

1 Corinthians 14:33 (NKJV) “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.”

The word “confusion” from Strong’s Dictionary of NT Words is

g0181. ἀκαταστασία akatastasia; from 182; instability, i.e. disorder: — commotion, confusion, tumult.
AV (5) – confusion 2, tumult 2, commotion 1;
instability, a state of disorder, disturbance, confusion

You see. God isn’t confused. God isn’t unstable. God isn’t in a state of disorder.

Fallen man is.

Isaiah 29:15-16 (NKJV) “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”?

You see. The world is confused. Not God. God knew exactly what He was doing when He created us. After Adam sinned against God, confusion came.

And the biggest thing that fallen man is doing is that they’re trying to get you to be just as confused as they are. And if you reject their confusion, it’s disinformation. It’s misinformation. It’s malicious information.

In other words, the truth is the enemy and the lie is your friend.

So the female Democratic governor of Oregon has decided to put tampons in boys bathrooms. But the male Democratic governor of California is arguing about Roe v Wade and stated that men aren’t women.

Can you see the contradiction?

A woman governor is telling boys that identify as a woman can have “cycles,” but the male governor is telling folks that men are not women and that they must defend the woman’s right to chose to kill a baby.

You will never see a man giving birth. He’s not equipped to give birth.

So don’t be fooled into thinking the way they think.

So in order for you to accept confusion, you must suppress the truth.

Romans 1:18-19 (NKJV) “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.”

The word “suppress” is defined from Strong’s Dictionary of NT Words…

g2722. κατέχω katechō; from 2596 and 2192; to hold down (fast), in various applications (literally or figuratively): — have, hold (fast), keep (in memory), let, x make toward, possess, retain, seize on, stay, take, withhold.

So the world is attempting to hold down the truth.

Isaiah 5:20-21 (NKJV) “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight!”

You see. In the confused mind of fallen man, they swap truth and the lie. Bitter for sweet. Light for darkness.

That’s why there’s an information war.

Now there will be preachers in the pulpit in the coming days that will accept this fallacy. They will say that if a man feels like a woman, they can go to the woman’s restroom. But you’ve opened to door for pedophilia and rape in the house of the Lord.

Folks. When you see a pastor accept the confusion of the world, he’s no longer a pastor. Or was never a pastor to begin with. You need to make for the exits.

But on the other hand, we have so called preachers that will never confront the sin of the sinners to keep them in their seats.

1 John 2:18-19 (NKJV) “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.”

The age that we’re living in is the age of the Antichrist.

But guess what?

1 John 4:1-6 (NKJV) “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,

and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them.

We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

So don’t be confused as the world.

1 Peter 3:13-17 (NKJV) “And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.”

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.

For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.”

1 Peter 4:1-6 (NKJV) “Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.

For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you.

They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.”

Pastoral Scandals. How Do They Happen?

How does a pastoral scandal take root?

Not in any order, but……

  1. When the slightest sin is never confessed.

2. When we ignore the slightest warning from the Holy Spirit.

3. When we deceive ourselves that we’re not being watched by God or others.

4. When porn and masturbation isn’t crucified.

5. When looking at women or men lustfully isn’t crucified, you’re unwilling to pluck out your eye or cut off your hand.

6. When exposure happens to the other pastor and not you.

7. When we take forgiveness, grace, and mercy for granted.

8. When we easily return to our folly.

9. When we suppress & forget God, His Word, and when the Christ was on His blood stained cross.

10. When we have no accountability partner.

11. When we don’t think that God would hold us accountable.

12. When we pretend repentance when we’re actually remorseful.

13. When we sneer and snicker at the penalty.

14. When, over time, we get over the chastisement and embarrassment.

15. When we call it a mistake instead of sin.

16. When we don’t believe God is offended.

17. When we don’t believe we’re a hypocrite.

18. When we don’t believe that God would pay us the wages of sin in hell.

More scandals will emerge. It’s just a matter of time.

On Assignment. Male Pastors Lurking For Vulnerable Women.

2 Peter 2:12-15 (NKJV) “But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime.

They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls.

They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children. They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness…”

In the Hillsong incident, the pastor was forced to resign because he was caught texting inappropriately to another woman.

It’s clear that the assignment works both ways. This pastor initiated contact which is a clear indication that he acted as a predator in search for a vulnerable woman.

There’s two sides to the those that are on assignment.

Immoral women and immoral men. Both are on assignment from satan.

For the man, that happens to be a pastor, he make take his time to make sure that he earns the trust of women or a targeted woman.

As long as he “seems” to be honest, holy, into God, into the Word, he may give that “safe” appearance. Then as soon as he feels that you’ve confided in him, he will take things to the next level.

At this point, he will feel confident in that false sense of security. If women aren’t careful, she will give in to his desires and regret it.

But the assignment happens both ways. It’s not always the woman’s fault unless she’s on assignment as well. But notice what Peter said.

They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls.

The place of vulnerability is around food and they look to entice “unstable souls.”

The word “unstable” means “unfixed.” It gives the idea that they’re not established in the Word of God.

The ones that are stable are established in their relationship with the Lord to the point that they see the enticement. They never let their guard down. They’re on the watch for evil in any form.

Women that come to the house of worship and are stable know these Scriptures….

James 4:7 (NKJV) “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

Ephesians 6:10-11 (NKJV) “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

And 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NKJV)
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…”

Never put your trust in any man (see Jeremiah 17:5-10).

Always seek out other women in the Lord for counseling that you trust, if you need counseling. Never put yourself in a vulnerable situation with men. Never give them your personal information. Ask the tough questions and leave no stone unturned.

Investigate, keep and guard your personal information, never relax your guard.

Even when other women are fishing for information because they many be working for that slick sexually immoral pastor.

Ending The Male & Female Confusion

Genesis 1:27 (NKJV) “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

Matthew 19:4 (NKJV) “And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’

Dr. Richard Levine, a male that was surgically changed as a transgender to be Dr. Rachel Levine was named “Woman of the Year” by USA Today.

The Babylon Bee put out its satire and called him “Man of the Year.” Twitter took action and blocked the Babylon Bee’s Twitter account, claiming that it violated their policy.

Which of course would be reaccessed as soon as The Babylon Bee removes the post.

The Babylon Bee refused to remove the post because they said (and I agree), truth isn’t hate speech.

Free speech is protected in the US Constitution. Satire is Constitutionally protected speech. Twitter is a private company.

Censuring free speech is unconstitutional.

Therefore, Twitter, and all attempts of private companies to censure free speech are afraid of free speech, especially truth.

Richard Levine is a man. His biological make up, DNA, birth certificate, retina, and chromosomes testify of his biological make up that came from Almighty God.

The world wants us to accept what God rejects.

Isaiah 29:15-16 (NKJV) “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?”
16 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”?”

The world wants us to believe that God made the error. That a man is trapped in woman’s body, and a woman is trapped in a man’s body. That God is confused. 

1 Corinthians 14:33 (NKJV) “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.”

So because God is not the author of confusion, someone else is.

The devil and his children.

This isn’t a threat, but a plain fact that takes place 150,000 times each day. 

The administrators of Twitter will have their account closed according to Hebrews 9:27. Everyone will have their account closed according to Hebrews 9:27.

Richard Levine is not a woman. He is a man dressing and surgically altered to appear like a woman. This is a scientific fact that can’t be denied.

Mr. Thomas questioned his gender identity and was surgically altered to be a woman. He’s a swimmer, swimming against biological women. It’s no contest. A biological woman has yet to beat him. It’s impossible because he’s a male. Like all transgenders, the biological make up can’t be altered.

Even when you take drugs and hormone altering drugs, the DNA, retina, chromosomes remain the same. Just as God designed it to be from the beginning.

Follow the science, as they say.

Even science confirms this inevitable fact. 

You can be ignorant. Being ignorant is free speech.

But you can’t make me go along with being ignorant.

You can block my account, but you can’t end truth and the reasonable science of basic human biology.

This isn’t hate speech. This is stating the truthful facts.

Sexual Immorality, When A Pastor Crosses The Line (pt. 1).

The qualifications of a bishop (overseer, presbyter, elder, pastor) are clear.

1 Timothy 3:1-7 (NKJV) This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach;

not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous; one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?);

not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

Why do pastors cross the line?

Lust in the heart.

James 1:14-15 is clear.

James 1:14-15 (NKJV) “But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

Within the hearts is a sexual desire. I said hearts.

The male and the female.

Immoral women have a sexual desire to be touched and they become “passive hunters.” Provocatively dressed, they’re prepared to entice a “powerful” speaker.

At the same time, the male is an “active hunter.” They seek out a woman for a sexual conquest.

When they cross at an intersection, all it takes is for a natural attraction encounter, and the two, unless the pastor is “temperate,” they will connect.

The sexually immoral pastor will look for reasons to engage in adultery if they’re married, or if they’re single, they will will look for reasons to engage in fornication. The same applies to bisexuals or homosexuality.

Crossing at the intersection is deliberate.

It’s intended to get their attention. Once their attention is gained, the planning is in its first stage. This is where one sizes up and get intelligence on their vulnerabilities and play them to their advantage.

It goes without saying that most conquests are demonically inspired.

We see this with Samson and Delilah. Potiphar’s wife and Joseph. Ahab and Jezebel. Jezebel in the book of Revelation.

Whenever there’s a personality powerful person, the attraction is used against them. Even more prevalent, is when a holy man of God is used mightily by God, it will not take long for an “ASSIGNMENT” from satan to be initiated.

So a male pastor, married or single, must institute safe guards, guardrails, and self discipline to remain established in the Lord in personal holiness to avoid sexual immorality.

Proverbs 31:1-3 (NKJV) “The words of King Lemuel, the utterance which his mother taught him:
What, my son?
And what, son of my womb?
And what, son of my vows?
Do not give your strength to women,
Nor your ways to that which destroys kings.”

The one place where men give their strength to women is in the bedroom.

The bedroom is the place where the heart of men is captured. His power is used against him.

Seduction unlocks the heart, which unleashes his power. He will say “yes” to almost everything when you give him sex.

Every man that yielded their strength to women were destroyed.

Proverbs 7:25-27 (NKJV) “Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways,
Do not stray into her paths;
For she has cast down many wounded,
And all who were slain by her were strong men.
Her house is the way to hell,
Descending to the chambers of death.”

Men seldom see the set up. Blinded by a desire to be bolstered in front of people. Blinded by flattery, he doesn’t see that the beginning stages of being played are in place.

We all want to be nice to people, especially women, but if you’re not watching and praying, it’s just a matter of time before the trap closes.

Being hospitable must never turn into a sexual conquest. Pastors should be nice to people, but the safe guards, guardrails, self disciplines must remain in place.

Pastors can be approachable and friendly, but you must never allow yourself to sexually cross the line.

A woman’s beauty is their world, but it could be a tool to get into your heart.

A woman’s genuine vulnerabilities could also be taken advantage by a male pastor that turns into a predator/wanderer. Women that confide in a male pastor could be taken advantage.

It’s not all a woman’s fault, unless, on her part, the intent to deceive is present.

She could appear with a seemingly legitimate vulnerability, but she could also use it as a tool to get to the heart of a pastor.

With false preachers and pastors, the whole intent of their “ministries” is to exercise such influence that unsuspecting women will give themselves to a predator, and come under a man’s personality and be used sexually.

That’s why it’s important for women to have guardrails, safe guards and discipline themselves. When you hear or see something that’s trying to attract you to them, have enough sense to disconnect and run from that place.

A married man that was an apologist was attracted to a married woman. She was attracted to his ability to explain the Scriptures. He appeared legitimate, with no noticeable alarms with the use of Scripture.

He rightfully divided the Scriptures. He was the rave of the modern Christian world.

With this woman, she connected with him on the internet. It wouldn’t be long before he would spring the trap. She started to see something and she broke off. She was wise to explain it to her husband. This apologist crossed the line and accused her of sending sexually explicit photos, which was a lie to cover up what he was doing.

He was sexually setting her up.

His world renown organization declared him as a man of integrity and that he would never cross the line.

While these allegations were vigorously defended, pictures emerged of a sullen looking individual. He was diagnosed and was dying of cancer. After his death, more was uncovered and his impeccable, blameless reputation as a “man of integrity” was destroyed.

While he was alive, they’ve surrounded his life like an army would with wagons.

As an unbiased investigation ensued, and after his death, the real person emerged.

His secondary sexual lifestyle became plain for all to see. The organization made a terrible mistake in surrounding him.

After the allegations became substantiated, their worst fears came to light.

He was a sexual predator.

It would only be after his passing that the truth emerged.

It’s concluded that his body was delivered to satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit would be saved (see 1 Corinthians 5:1-5).

Women have a duty to remain pure before the Lord as well as the pastor.

Neither one, for the sake of His name, should cross the line.

At The End Of The Rope In Your Marriage

There was an elderly couple that were holding hands. The wife was lying on the couch and her husband was holding her hand.

It was her last moments in her life and all she wanted at that moment was the touch of her husband’s hand. She wanted to savor the moment of knowing that she was loved by her husband.

A few moments later, assured of her husband’s caring touch that she knew would be there, she closed her eyes for the final time.

The years of being together for decades, came to an end. She made her last moment with him to count.

As the saying goes when a minister performs the vows, ““Till death, do you part.”

We don’t realize the power of these words until they become a reality.

With a husband and wife, there will be times when you wished you had another mate, and it’s because of certain events that strain a relationship. For either the male or the female, there’s that one moment of contemplating adultery.

For men, all it takes is when the eyes start searching for flesh.

After a traumatic moment in the marriage, a man will look to “reward” himself in sex. Dr. Archibald Hart stated that “Sex is the best pick me up.” When a man wants to reward himself or make himself feel better, he intuitively look for sex because of the reward drug, “dopamine,” is excreted into the blood stream and gives man a pleasurable satisfaction.

He seldomly will look to the person that they may have had an argument with (the wife) for sex. He will usually start looking a sexually provocative women, either on the street, at work, on the Internet.

In secret, he lusts after the flesh of women. In secret, he will fantasize about having sex with her, engulfed in masturbation. But the demons are always there to suggest to you to take it to the next level.

To strip joints where prostitutes, who are porn stars, will be available.

But the completely obsessed man will take things too far.

On the level of a Ted Bundy.

He becomes a serial rapist, and will take it to the level of rape and murder.

This is the world of sexual immorality where men will go to extremes because of an event in a marriage.

For wives, they feel disconnected from the husband because of certain events, whether caused by either party. She will look for a man that would sit down and confide with. She finds a man.

Probably a professional like a marriage counselor, a pastor or minister, or a lawyer. She wants to be listened to. Reassured. Comforted. Protected. Loved.

Some of these “professionals” are either “predators, or wanderers.”

Perhaps, they too, are in a strained relationship and take things to the next level.

Looking to take advantage of a vulnerable woman. At the right moment, he incrementally secures her trust.

Then, he moves from behind the desk, to sit next to her. He puts his hand on her hand. Then rubbing his hand, to holding her, then to kissing her, then the bed room.

She realizes her mistake but it’s too late. She gives in to her vulnerabilities, and the rest is history.

All because your marriage was on the ropes.

Sinning against God is no excuse. Hebrews 13:4 is clear.

The husband and the wife need to reconcile their differences before their differences turn into an irreconcilable difference.

Many couples assume that they’re at the end of the rope, not realizing that they have more rope to go.

According to the Lord Jesus in Matthew 19:1-9, there’s only one reason for divorce.

Sexual immorality.

But what about verbal abuse?

Consistent and constant verbal abuse is an anger management situation. You have to get at the root of his or her verbal abuse. It may take competent professional counseling to dig deep into the beginning of where it all started.

The husband or the wife have to choose to expose themselves in counseling to get to the root of the problem. If they don’t, it’s not recommended that they remain in a relationship because things could go south real quick.

But what about physical abuse?

This is assault. And even though there’s no Scriptural support for this to be the reason together a divorce, make no mistake about it. It is battery.

It’s domestic violence.

This is where it gets dangerous, even for police officers that show up to keep the peace.

If you don’t leave a domestic violence dispute, you may end up dead.

The sad thing is when the emotions and adrenaline of the moment subsides, they come back under the roof. Then it starts all over again. They usually don’t learn from the last incident.

You deliberately or even unintentionally do something that you know or don’t know that this triggers the event or events.

In marriages, behavioral changes may be difficult for people because of several factors.

Your upbringing, certain acts and habits that may be pleasant to you, but offensive to others. When there’s a refusal to change for the mutual benefit of the relationship, this is where the fireworks may happen.

Now there may be a tolerance for a season, but after the season of silently putting up with the difference comes to an end, it’s like a slow fire.

You smell smoke and then a secondary explosion is the one that rocks the building.

At the beginning of the marriage, you’re learning each other’s habits, patterns, and cycles. Your likes and dislikes are like lions, marking their territory. You breach the boundary, the lion gives a warning roar. Then when you continue to breach the territory, after the warning, the fighting begins.

Winner takes all.

But that’s animals. We’re humans. We’re to communicate our likes, and dislikes in a civil manner.

It’s amazing how quickly couples forget that they’re in Christ.

When you have disputes, it’s not the time to declare that you’re at the end of the rope. It’s the time to go back to your vows and reach deep into loving each other as Christ loves the church, and for the wife, like the church, to submit to Christ.

Besides, if it’s another woman you want, you will be irreparably burned and shamed. For the wife, your harlotry will embarrass you.

Finally, the world does revolving door weddings. Remember the woman at Jacob’s well in Samaria? She was searching for a man to satisfy her, she had 5 husbands and the one that she was with, wasn’t her husband.

It took the Lord to reveal to her that continuous adultery is unsatisfying. The Lord revealed to her that only the water that Jesus had would satisfy the longing in her heart.

And this is where there’s more rope in your marriage than you think.

For only the Lord Jesus could satisfy us completely.

It’s also stunning that when we look elsewhere that we select what we had.

It underscores one thing.

What you had was God’s best.

So when you’re at the end of your rope in marriage, just know that there’s plenty of rope left.

Fight for your marriage.
