Luis Leon, Episcopal Priest, Will Deliver Obama’s Inauguration Benediction, Replacing Louie Giglio
Many of you are saying that he is just giving a benediction. It will be a benediction that God will not hear. The prayer may have well been addressed to the devil himself.
Psalm 66:18 says, “If I regard iniquity in my heart the Lord will not hear me.”
You cannot practice sin and practice righteousness at the same time. This is the very thing that many preachers and believers know based on the Word of God. You cannot live in sin and expect God to accept you in the condition of sin.
Here is what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23.
“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!”
If you try to tell this to anyone in sin, they will tell you that you are full of hate, but here is the thing. You try to tell God to accept your condition unconditionally when the Lord sent His Son unconditionally to save you from the condition of sin you are in.
Notice what Paul said in Romans 5:18-21.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.”
You see, salvation’s purpose is to change your heart.
“The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked,” Jeremiah 17:9 tells us.
It’s the condition of the heart that the Lord is after, but man refuses to have his heart changed so they reinvent everything that God initially instituted so that what man makes conforms to his own dark heart.
There is a clear intention to weaken the church by finding weak willed leaders to accept sin in the church. From bisexual pastors to perverted bishops that are open homosexuals. They want to have God but they do not want His Word of righteousness and true holiness.
So there is a double effort to reduce the pillar of truth into a pile of rubble while erecting a “church” according to their liking. This church must have teeth. The State Church of LGBT must have governmental power to exist. That’s why there has been a concerted effort to engage in politics, rewrite Civil Rights, suppress the truth, silence the truth through the legislative and judicial process, and infiltrate political power by being elected into office.
A man once said that the most powerful preachers were Black. There is no question that there are many preachers across the globe that are not African descent are just as powerful. There is no question in my mind that some of the greatest preachers also were Anglo Saxon and other races. If you look at African history, many firsts were achieved.
However, we see that in some African American preachers today, there is an unwillingness to confront the issues of our day from a Biblical perspective. We find that many are comfortable talking about issues that would better our people (prosperity gospel, motivational messages, coaching) but we fail to realize that sin is detrimental to any race.
Proverbs 14:34 says,
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”
As Paul said, “Woe (doomed) is me if I PREACH not the gospel.”
I’m not called to motivate or coach. When God spoke to me and called me into the ministry, He called me to PREACH!
Sadly, some have accepted the sin of homosexuality and relegated it to Civil Rights. Sin and Civil Rights are two separate issues. The Blood of Jesus has removed sin. Man must accept his race and learn to be mindful that no matter what your race is, the love of Jesus bridges the gap.
Some African American pastors are not quick to speak against sin but very quick to deal with race issues.
Many have abandoned the call of God to enter into the political arena. The one thing that helps people is to have a change of heart that the gospel of Jesus Christ provides through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. We preachers have come to find out that not many people want to turn from sin and sometimes, discouragement sets in and such discouragement drives us from the pulpit.
In most cases, it drives many to Secret Sexual Sins to appease the lack of satisfaction in making a gospel difference in people’s lives. People are hard to minister to because of a variety of issues and challenges that many people face. We pastors tend to forget that we cannot fix everything and we cannot change anybody.
With this, a vacuum of power and influence was left wide open. In many of our White denominations, many have forsaken the way of the Lord. Intellectually, they have reasoned that God has changed and are now incorporating LGBT principles in their churches. Joseph Ward calls it, “progressive.”
GCMWatch.com, a while back sounded the alarm about gay denominations emerging.
In progressive minded church people and leaders, LGBT has found weak willed leaders that became sympathetic to the sin of homosexuality. Some that resist are called bigots, racists, discriminant, and other racial slurs that African Americans are accustomed to use when confronted with racist people.
Predominantly, and sadly, White homosexual folks have taken on our plight. As I would say, put my skin on for one split second and then you will know what true racism is all about.
There is a difference between sin and skin.
One person put it like this.
“When I walk outside, I did not come out of the closet another color. I walk out as a Black man. You do not have to ask me about my “orientation” of skin color. When I walk out that door, you can easily see, without a shadow of doubt, that I am a Black man. But when you need to know if I am straight or gay, you have to ask because the pigmentation of my skin generally tells you my ethnicity. My skin color doesn’t tell you anything about my sexuality.”
In a nutshell, Joseph Ward said that “Christians are consistently becoming more visible advocates for full inclusion of our LGBT neighbors.”
I and many other true believers have not become one because of our immoveable stand on the standard of the Word of God. Moving from the Word of God is non-negotiable according to James 4:4 and 1 John 2:15-17. We will be glad to lead you to The Lord, but I will not let you lead me from my Lord and Savior. The progressive thinking of sinners always lead people astray and away from The Lord to commit perverse acts that is prohibited in Scripture.
It’s amazing that people want to change God instead of being changed by God. They always claim that God is wrong and behind the times, when people in their reprobate minds are wrong and behind the times.
Catch up to the way God thinks.
Joseph Ward also said, Christianity does not have to be exclusive of LGBT equality, and when it is, people are leaving the church.”
He really wanted to say Christ does not have to be exclusive…
You can’t make this stuff up. LGBT, you can’t have the righteousness of God and be in the condition of sin. As Jesus said, “You must be born again!”
Therefore, we who believe the written inerrant Word of God dare not progress from the God who gave it.

Washington National Cathedral now performs same sex marriages. In the African American churches, gay bishops are emerging in record numbers. One by one, we are seeing catholicism enter the ranks of African American churches to give these bishops legitimacy in ministry.
However, we all know that God is not pleased and God never approved such things according to Leviticus 18:22, Malachi 3:6, and Romans 1:18-32.
They do not see that the place at the highest political table is just a token. The real power behind the White House has controlled what we see.
It is amazing that only 2% of the American population is homosexual, yet, they are able to wield power as if they are a massive majority that dares to be challenged. It reminds me of the Wizard of Oz where a short man behind the curtain is so insecure of himself that he needs loudspeakers, smoke, and people fearful of him to be accepted.
Such as it is with LGBT. They want to be able to steamroll their way into the political system, overthrow the faith of many, and establish their own State Church. These are telltale signs of the end of a superpower. Just look at the book of Daniel and every major dominating power rose and comes to an end.
Psalm 75:6-10 says this….
“For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, and exalts another.
For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is fully mixed, and He pours it out; surely its dregs shall all the wicked of the earth drain and drink down.
But I will declare forever, I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. All the horns of the wicked I will also cut off, but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
Notice also what Paul said in Acts 17:24-31.
“God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.
And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said,
For we are also His offspring. Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising.
Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
Take a good look at the Inauguration. Babylon is emerging. In order for a new world order to emerge, a superpower must decline.
Spiritually, morally, economically, technologically, educationally, and militarily.
While some states are holding out and establishing their hold against same sex marriages, we are seeing LGBT impose their end around game. If you think that the incident at Sandy Hook High School is just an isolated incident, it sparked outrage regarding guns in the US. So much so that many in political circles desire to change the 2nd Amendment.
The founding fathers, in their wisdom saw that if you take the weapons, you rule the people with an iron rod. Such as it was with Germany in 1938. Such as it is in North Korea. When a people have no weapons to defend themselves, it is inevitable that the people will be ruled with an iron fist.
The founding fathers knew that one day America would attempt to make changes in the Constitution and they set a very high bar to prevent drastic changes from taking place easily. However, if you see them make changes in the Constitution, then it is very easy to set it aside. That’s why when you see a usurping of a document that exceeds the wisdom of men today, it’s because Babylon is sure to emerge.
All of these things are interconnected because this is the end times.
So do not be surprised when the State Church of LGBT gets a stronghold in the United Staes.
Just be ready as Jesus said, “For your redemption draws nears.”
