When a homosexual, Gene Robinson was elected and ordained to be bishop of an Episcopal church in New Hampshire in 2003, it made it seem as if God does call homosexuals and lesbians into the ministry.
These preachers are all inside the church. They are agents of LGBT. Impostors and false teachers, preachers, and prophets.
What man selects and where man intrudes is not the call of God.
It’s one thing to experience a life changing experience, such as being born again. It’s another thing to live in sin. You must understand that every person that the Lord called into the ministry experienced a change. From the lifestyle of sin to the life of God to walk after the Lord in holiness.
Holiness is the distinguishing characteristic that sets apart a person for the Lord for His service.
Therefore, holiness and sin are incompatible.
In 1 John 1:5-10, John, an eyewitness apostle of the Lamb said,
“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. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.”
You just don’t go to sleep and wake up desiring to be a preacher. It’s much more than that. First, the God of the universe preselects who will be called into the ministry. You have no say in the matter. It’s all according to the plan and purpose of God before the world began.
When you see a practicing homosexual wear clergy garb, it is very deceptive. When you see a practicing heretic preach a gospel of inclusion (Carlton Pearson) of homosexuality, it is deception. When a person is sympathetic to the sin of homosexuality, or any sin, for that matter, what could they teach you about God?
The answer is nothing because they don’t know Him.
It is insulting to God and to those that stand the watch, ministering in truth.
It is a charade. They are masquerading as ministers of light living in darkness. They are impostors and could never be trusted to tell you the whole truth and counsel of the Word of God. Their sole goal is to steer you from God and hold you in bondage to your sins as something that a person could never escape from.
Thank God that the Word of God tells us different. That we do not have to believe the lie that all men cannot be free from sin. Jesus paid a horrible price to free us from satan’s grip of sin and death.
“He whom the Son sets free is free indeed, and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ has made you free and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. There is therefore now no condemnation to those that are in Christ Jesus who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. That through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”
That’s God’s Word on your freedom. You do not have to yield to your urges and impulses as a slave to sin. You can trust the Holy Spirit to make a way to escape every temptation to fall into sexual sin. It is a matter of obeying the Holy Spirit during your weak moments and receive the strength and grace of the Holy Spirit to overcome.
Don’t trust the person with a clean suit, ministerial collar, or the ministerial robe.
Trust the Word of God.
Practicing sin and practicing righteousness cannot be done. You cannot say that you know Him and live in sin at the same time. If you really know Him, you would run far from sin. You would run far from the very thing that Jesus came to die for.
That’s why LGBT goes to great lengths to attempt to remove homosexuality from the category of sin, make every effort to make same sex agreeable, acceptable, and glamorous. Use and abuse Civil Rights to declare the Bible’s standard against homosexuality and all sexual immorality as sexual discrimination, and sexual bigotry. And discredit the true teachings of the Scripture regarding the sin of homosexuality.
You cannot be holy and be in sin at the same time. It is impossible. Just like you cannot be completely wet and completely dry at the same time. You cannot stand on both sides of the fence at the same time. You can’t be in darkness and be in light at the same time. You cannot be a prisoner and be free at the same time.
You must understand that there is a separation required for those called into the ministry.
Each individual that the Lord used was pulled out. Abel provided a sacrifice that God required and Cain killed Abel because God rejected the fruit offering of Cain, something that the Lord didn’t require. The whole world was plunged into darkness, but Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Israel was in bondage to Pharaoh and the Lord raised up Moses to set His people free.
In all of these instances, they were pulled from people and separated by God for His use.
One of the things about the call of God is that the call is a sacred, holy, solemn call that changes a person’s life forever. The God of the universe calling a mere man is a very powerful and life changing moment.
Isaiah had a vision and saw the Lord. He thought that he would die but an angel took a coal from off the altar and touched Isaiah’s lips and the angel told him that Isaiah’s sins were purged.
The nation of Israel, the children of Jacob, had twelve sons. One of the sons was called Levi. God separated them for the service of the tabernacle. Their job was an exclusive job. They were to be God’s separated priests to minister to the Lord and to minister to the people.
In Deuteronomy 10, “the Lord separated the tribe of Levi to bear the ark of the covenant, to stand before the Lord to minister to Him and to bless in His name…”
When Paul and Barnabas was about to embark on their first missionary journey, the Holy Spirit said, “Separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”
When you are separated from the people and selected by God in accordance with His will, you belong to the Lord. However, this separation occurred because God willed it to be in accordance with His plan and purpose.
Remember, God is holy and you have to match the level of holiness as required by God to be His minister. Moses was a murderer, yet God called him to serve. Moses never murdered again. Saul, who was called Paul later, took people to prison and consented to the deaths of the saints of God.
Jesus changed him on the road to Damascus. Then called Him into the ministry. Paul never imprisoned people again but he was, himself, imprisoned and martyred for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Peter denied the Lord three times, yet he became an apostle of the Lamb and died a martyr. Evidently, he never denied the Lord again.
It makes sense for God to call people out of the world. Save them. Give them eternal life. And then call them into the ministry.
It makes sense for God to call ex-homosexuals and ex-lesbians to the ministry because the delivering power of God is a tremendous testimony to show that the Lord will use anyone that is willing to accept the call or invitation from the life of sin and get another call or invitation to minister the delivering power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
What doesn’t make sense is when a person claims to be a minister of the gospel and live in sin.
First, God is against sin. This is evidenced with Lucifer’s ejection from heaven when pride was found in his heart and that he attempted to overthrow God.
We must remember that when the Lord called His twelve apostles, Judas was a thief.
“…but because he was a thief, and had the money box, and he used to take what was put in it…”
He was a part of the ministry of Jesus but Judas never had a change of heart. A change of heart comes with repentance. Where there is no true repentance, there is true arrogance.
But we know that there were no homosexuals selected by the Lord.
How do we know?
The Sanhedrin always looked to discredit Jesus by making accusations against the Lord and His disciples.
“Now it happened that He went through the grain fields on the Sabbath, and as they went His disciples began to pluck the heads of grain. and the Pharisees said to Him, ‘Look, why do they do what is not lawful on the Sabbath?”
Usually, this would be called “nitpicking.”
If the Pharisees were looking for infractions of the law, every detail was identified to discredit the disciples of the Lord Jesus. If something major were found, it would be called…
Having said this, it is now important to understand that the call of God into the ministry is a sacred call.
The God of all flesh preselects his children to enter into His ministry. However, the first stop is to be saved.
So all who claim to be in the ministry but practice homosexuality, fornication, adultery, porn, self gratification, bisexuality, they cannot be trusted to have the call of God. In fact, if you were truly born again from above, do you think that you would sin? That’s what we are getting at. A life that is truly changed by the power of God has no desire to do the thing that God is against.
So it doesn’t make sense to listen to someone preach out of the Bible and do the very thing that the Bible said not to do. Does it?
This is exactly what we are up against.
Granted, many pastors struggle with their flesh but just because you are having a struggle, it doesn’t mean that you are to yield to the temptation. The difference between living in sin and overcoming sin is a decision.
If you are trying to help people overcome sin, you must receive the teaching of the Holy Spirit to train your flesh not to sin so you could teach others. But to practice sin and try to teach others how to overcome sin, that’s hypocrisy.
For blatant homosexuals that try to preach or act called to the ministry, it’s on another level.
When you tell people to yield to their sexual preferences instead of receiving grace and help in time of need to overcome, it is clear that you are an enemy of the cross of Christ. Because you cannot be a friend of God while being involved in the thing that God is against.
Ministers of the gospel are sent by God to help people get saved, born again, and then mature the believers in their walk in the Lord to overcome sin. Not yield to sin. And as a minister of the gospel, you are to lead the way by living holy, separated lives unto the Lord as an example to the believers to let them know that it is possible to live the way God called all His children to live.
When you have people that call themselves ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ and they call upon pastors to support the very thing that the Lord is against, they have turned away from the Lord and their calling to the ministry is, at the very least, considered questionable.
In fact, many would say, and I can’t blame them, that they were never called by God.
When you get the call of God, there is an unmistakable experience that takes place where you have had an encounter with God. Your job is not to take that call from God and pervert it; as many who are attached to the NAACP have done.
Separated, holy lives unto the Lord is what is required from His truly appointed minister.
If you are struggling with SSA (Same Sex Attraction) but you haven’t yielded to its devastating pull. In other words, you haven’t acted out these attractions, then you need to find a place in God to never yield to those urges and impulses. This is done through accountability with other ministers that will help you and pray for you to stay strong.
If you are struggling with Secret Sexual Sins, you need to get to a place of the light of His Word and expose these secrets.
I explain my exposure of Secret Sexual Sins in my book. Secret Sexual Sins.
Exposure comes in two ways.
One: Self Exposure.
This is when you elect to share your story to someone that you can trust or to a group of people. It all depends on who’s there. If it is a bunch of brothers that never shared their testimony, it’s tough but when you know that you need help, choose a time and place very carefully. Not everyone is willing to receive what you are exposing from your personal life.
That’s the down side. The up side is that you give God no story to tell.
Two: Divine Exposure
This is where after repeated attempts of the Lord to help you, you persist in the Secret Sexual Sins. The Lord uses people in strange places to expose your secret as dirty laundry. Granted. The Lord doesn’t do this often because it is embarrassing. But if you are a minister of the gospel and the Lord reached out to you on numerous occasions, and you ignored Him, it is just a matter of time before someone will drop a dime on you.
What the Lord is doing is that He is getting help to you so you could be the kind of minister that Lord needs you to be in the 21st Century.
Looking to help others out of sin.
If you are a practicing homosexual and you call yourself a preacher, you are an intentional deception artist. You have no intention of preaching the right ways of the Lord. You desire to stay in sin and you desire to trap others in homosexual sins.
YOU ARE NOT A PREACHER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IF YOU PRACTICE SIN, AND YOU TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO STAY IN SIN. YOU WERE NEVER CALLED BY GOD BECAUSE GOD DOESN’T CONTEND WITH HIMSELF. MUCH LESS WITH THOSE THAT ARE AGAINST HIM. YOUR ROBE, CLERICAL COLLAR, AND SLICK SUIT PERISHES WITH YOU, YOU IMPOSTOR OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!
Your punishment is warranted unless you repent.
Your punishment is moving closer with each passing minute.
These passages of Scripture from the Book of Jude, the half brother of Jesus, is earmarked for you should you fail to repent. The grain of sand in the hourglass of your life is drawing to a close.
“For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ. These are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you without fear, serving only themselves. They are clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever. Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”
