Ladies, be outraged.
It is nothing more than sin and you know it.
No matter what he calls himself, his name is Bruce.
Pastors will now have to scrutinize all marriages because only God knows what’s coming down the isle or who is standing at the altar.
To call him a female name is to agree with his change.
Offended that I wouldn’t call him by his female name? You would probably say that we shouldn’t offend transgender people by not calling them by their new name. When they came out of the womb as a male or female, their parents named him or her because of their birthday gender.
Since this is the order of God, I’d rather offend you than to offend God and His divine order.
Isaiah 64:8 “But now, O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; And all we are the work of Your hand.”
What right does a man or woman has to use their hand to undo the work of the hand of Almighty God?
Listen to what the Lord said to Jeremiah.
Jeremiah 1:4-5 “Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
And finally in Psalm 139:13-16 “For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.”
Besides, that’s what this is all about.
He is seeking change but he looked externally as opposed to inwardly.
When it comes to an inward change, it’s a matter of the heart.
Jesus said, “Except a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
As a side note, several months ago, there was an outstanding article about real women stroking the egos of practicing homosexuals. What I mean is that when homosexuals start to have conversations with women and all of a sudden, it seems like he is talking to you like as if he is a woman.
You see, these spirits are subtle. And if you are not careful, you may be talking directly to that demon that he’s controlled by.
Transgenderism is just another form of homosexuality.
But it is a clear revelation of an identity crisis.
But even further than that, it’s about the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life according to 1 John 2:15-17.
This war is about Genesis 1:26-28
“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
God is not and was never confused. God deliberately made male and female.
Just as man is confused by the theory of evolution, so is he confused about gender.
Make no mistake about it. Jesus said a lot about homosexuality in Matthew 19:4-5.
“And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,”
Now if God changed His mind, Jesus would have told us. But how many of you know that God is consistent? You see, that’s why they have a problem with God’s Word. It can’t be altered. It can’t be changed. That’s why it is called a testament or agreement.
God’s Word is a legal document. If God changed His mind, God is a liar and He must go to hell because Revelation 21:8 says liars will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.
But Numbers 23:19 says “God is not a man, that He should lie,
Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”
Hebrews 6:18a says “…that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie,”
Transgenderism is about rejecting the image of God, hence, rejection of God.
There are many of you professed believers that will side in with the phrase “As long as he is happy, I don’t see a problem with it.” You must not be deceived. It’s not about being happy. It’s about a condition in the dark heart of man that only Jesus could heal and bring light.
Changing your gender is not going to make a person happy. Besides, when it comes to salvation in Christ, it’s not about the Lord making you happy. It’s about Jesus making you holy as you obey His Word.
It’s after you have repented and agreed to God’s terms that the joy of the Lord becomes your strength. Your emotions will change from day to day, but His Word will never change. When your emotions are not as happy as you want it to be, it is not the time to search for things of the world to find happiness. It is the time to drink from the living fountains of water according to John 4, and be fully satisfied in Him without being driven by your emotions.
Now this didn’t catch God by surprise. He knew this would happen before time began. But it also underscores to what levels of depravity mankind will go. This doesn’t change His love towards Bruce or any sinner for that matter. The power of the gospel of Jesus Christ is still available so long as he and others like him are alive.
There has been a few former transgenders that reversed the process and some of them came to Christ. The power of God is still available to save and deliver regardless to what depths of depravity man goes.
But there is a “sell by date” of this offer of complete deliverance.
The coming of the Lord or man’s death, which ever comes first.
After that, the offer is off the table.
After the appointed time of death (Hebrews 9:27), a person must abandon all hope if they are not in Christ.
The offer is absolute and is revoked on the date specified.
The president of the United States, Barack Obama, applauded Bruce.
The President just tweeted, “It takes courage to share your story,” adding, “Your story matters in the fight for LGBT rights.”
In the State of the Union Address and subsequent speeches, the president insists on this agenda.
Transgenderism is the last frontier because there is nothing left in the natural after this.
The image of God is holy and to pervert the image of God is satan’s goal.
To make God out to be other than what the Word says that He is, has been the agenda of all of hell.
Since satan can’t change God and His Word (Psalm 119:89, Matthew 24:35, Malachi 3:6 and James 1:17), satan is out to change the image of God, if he can’t kill God, he is out to kill the image of God embedded in man.
There is no question that if you count the numbers of LGBT, it is still a very small group with between 1% and 3% of the US population. What gives them backing is finances, loud voices behind the curtain, laws, and people that may not be practicing the sin of homosexuality that are pathetically sympathetic to the sin of homosexuality.
The other thing that gives them backing is when the people of God take a very lukewarm position and refuse to fight to defend the faith. In the face of mean spirits, we have turned away from the battle. We have to remember that the blood of Jesus paid for our redemption. We must also remember that it is our job to confront darkness wherever it is.
And we must mention the fact that when we allow sexual sins to go unchecked in our lives as believers, the moral backing of our prayers disappears. Additionally, we are not qualified to stand in the gap to intercede. What we have done by living an unrepentant life is open the door and hand the keys over to these spirits.
When we refuse to fight, we are taking a dive for the purse.
Therefore, I refuse to take a dive.
We must fight or we lose by default.
The success of the homosexual agenda, up to this point, appears to be unchallenged.
However, we still have the God of heaven that is watching this.
So since our God is greater and stronger, make no mistake about it.
God will not be mocked or scorned.
So what is the church to do?
We must understand that this picture is enemy propaganda. It is to stir our hearts to choose to be holy. In the darkest moments of this nation, we are called upon to reject evil in every form. We must step up our holiness because all hell is coming.
But Jesus said, “The gates of hell shall not prevail.”
In other words, the gates are not going to keep the church out from total victory. The gates of hell is not strong enough to withstand the assault of the church.
What’s behind those gates?
Souls that are bound in darkness. That’s what’s behind the gates.
Not cars, money, houses, riches, and lands.
Souls are behind those gates that are held captive by the enemy.
We must remember that this battle is about souls. Not your goods.
If you are struggling with your identity, there is One Person that is able to restore your identity but it starts with repentance. Sin is the opposite of holiness and righteousness. satan opposes everything that is of God.
In eternity, at the end of life, it all comes down to who you identify with.
satan didn’t create you, however, his nature is in you if you not saved.
Jesus said, “Except a man be born again, you cannot see the kingdom of God.”
The proof of you being born again is when the Holy Spirit comes on the inside of you and makes you a new creature in Christ. The proof that you are born again is found in Matthew 7:21-23. It’s when you take the Word of God and begin to obey the Words of Jesus. You practice righteousness not to get into heaven, but because you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
