Pastor DL Foster of GCMWatch.com posted TheBlaze.com blog regarding Pastor MacArthur’s statement on FB.
Well, Scripture backs him up 100%.
First, listen to what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 13:24-30 in the Parable of the Wheat and Tares.
“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 would the Lord permit this?
The reason is clear.
The seed of the Wheat is white and the seed of Tares is black.
If you want the real thing, people know where to go.
When it comes to the sin of homosexuality, the Lord minces no words in Leviticus 18:22 and showed His displeasure in Genesis chapters 18 and 19.
God did not change His mind because of what the Lord God said in Numbers 23:19, Psalm 119:89, Malachi 3:6, James 1:17 and Hebrews 6:16-18.
Jesus clarifies His statement when He explained it to His disciples in Matthew 13:36-43.
“Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. ”He answered and said to them: “He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one.
The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire.
There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
One of the things that you gotta love about the Lord is that if you ask Him a question, He will give you the answer.
And that’s been the point all along.
Jesus sowed good seed.
The field is the world.
satan sowed bad seed.
The good seeds are the sons of the kingdom.
The bad seeds (tares) are the sons of the wicked one (the devil).
The enemy who sowed the bad seeds is the devil.
The harvest is the end of the age.
The good seeds go into the barn as good harvest.
The bad seeds get burned in hell forever.
To be a good seed, how does one become one?
Jesus said “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Repent means to “change your mind or reconsider.”
When you do, the Lord will forgive you. After you are forgiven, the Holy Spirit comes in you and makes you a new creature in Christ.
Now for you homosexual affirming pastors and churches, as long as you “love” them and never demand they repent, you are a church of satan. You are tares planted by the wicked one.
As one preacher said, “If the shoe doesn’t fit, squeeze into it.”
You know who you are. If you are an enemy of God, James 4:4 says, “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.”
So if you are obstinately opposed to the will of God, then expect to be burned.
Oh, btw, it is at the last minute that tares are distinguishable because as wheat and tares grow together, you can’t tell the difference until the end. You see, if you have a “form of godliness but denying its power,” you are a tare. You can be in a building and call it church, but if you live a life of lawlessness, you are denying that power to work in you. If you were truly godly, you would not live in sin.
As Paul said, “Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not!”
And that’s the point of gay christians. They want to continue in sin so that grace can abound. Just like adulterating christians, fornicating christians, porn watching and masturbating christians, lying christians, stealing christians, extortioner christians, sodomite christians, drunkard christians, and such that sin and call themselves christians.
According to Paul, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 is clear.
I’m reminded of one homosexual that inboxed or emailed Pastor DL Foster.
This homosexual said that Jesus is his Lord, not Paul or Moses that were used by the Lord to write portions of the Bible.
In essence, he was writing them off so that he could claim plausible deniability about the sin of homosexuality.
His error will end one way.
If Jesus was the only One to have written the Bible, he would still be condemned because of what Jesus said in Matthew 19:4-5. And because Jesus was there in Genesis 18 that appeared to Abram. And because of John 1:1.
“In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.”
Jesus is the Word of God and we see the same in Revelation 19:11-16 “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns.
He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations.
And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”
So being that Jesus is the Word of God, He gave the Word of God to Moses, Paul, Peter, Matthew, Mark, Luke, Daniel, and others and there is no escaping the wrath of God with plausible or presumptive deniability.
So, what’s it going to be?
Enemy of God or friend.
You can’t have it both ways.
And if you are a pastor, that claims to be a man of God with a name from the Bible as your “church,” I suggest you reconsider your ways. Or just do us all a favor. Change your church name to satan, and call yourself a man of the devil.
