When a person professes faith in the the Lord Jesus and then makes a public announcement to divorce his wife, renounce faith in Jesus, and apologizes for his stand against the vile sin of homosexuality, then attend a homosexual parade in Canada………..
We could easily see that these signs indicate a clear picture of an individual that struggled with his relationship with the Lord and with his marriage.
If he didn’t struggle with his marriage, or more so, his sexuality, then are we blind?
You will say that I’ve read too much into this and you don’t know anything about what Harris is going through.
If you’re driving on a specific highway, in a specific car, and you get off at a specific exit, are you dreaming, are you in an illusion, or is it a mirage?
Is it a figment of my imagination?
We’ve seen this before with Jim Swilley, in 2010, when he divorced his wife, and announced to his mega church that he’s a homosexual.
We understand that patterns may be different with different individuals, however, the similarities can’t be ignored.
When there’s a certain unmistakable pattern, we should pay attention to it, because we may see it again, and again.
Sometimes, these patterns occur again at a later time because some of us may have fallen asleep.
The Body of Christ was ROCKED?
Far from it.
We need to see this for what it is and not for what they want us to pretend it is.
Which one is it?
Paul told Timothy “Flee youthful lusts.”
It’s clear that when it’s about sexual orientation, or to be blunt……….sex.
It all comes down to preference.
1 John 2:15-17 (NKJV Strong’s) “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.”
The fight of faith not only includes fighting against the methods and strategies of the devil to persecute the church, but it includes fighting against the desires of the flesh and mind that desire to stray or wander from personal holiness to engage in the pleasures of this life.
Psalms 119:9-11 (NKJV Strong’s)
“How can a young man cleanse his way?
By taking heed according to Your word.
With my whole heart I have sought You;
Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.”
Our love for the Lord must be stronger than any emotional attachments to sin we’ve been delivered from. We lose this fight when we give up and tell the Holy Spirit, by our actions, that we no longer want to fight against the sin that we love.
We stop submitting to God, We stop resisting the devil. We refuse to humble ourselves and place ourselves under the mighty hand of God.
The love for sin is allowed to overwhelm us, cloud our judgment and sear our conscience.
Or, if Joshua Harris was never of us (see 1 John 2:19), some of us were deceived.
It’s the going trend, revealing that we’re in the very last hour of the last days.
More and more, we’re seeing people renouncing Christ, that is, if they were in Christ. Or using many signs and wonders, and their musical gifts to deceive people into believing that they’re in Christ, and then depart the faith. And watch the people that followed them, and not Jesus, follow right along with them into sins and then into hell.
I believe that the rabbit trail of trying to figure out “why” is futile.
What’s important is that you take note and not follow personalities that come with lying signs and wonders, or great musical or oral talents.
1 Corinthians 10:6-13 (NKJV Strong’s) “Now these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted. And do not become idolaters as were some of them.
As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” Nor let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them did, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell; nor let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed by serpents; nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer.
Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
If you’re struggling in your flesh, it’s time to subdue the flesh with prayer and fasting.
Matthew 26:41 (NKJV Strong’s) “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
It’s time to listen to the Holy Spirit and heed His instruction.
“As many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.”
