Many of you may have heard of “Face To Face.”
David E. Kelly claims to have seen Jesus in a face to face encounter.
Notice the picture of “Jesus.”
It’s a dead give away.
No one living today knows what the Lord looks like outwardly.
Especially when the Bible says, 1 John 3:2 (NKJV Strong’s) “Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
But first, it’s all over the Internet that Viki Yohe, a Christian singer, appeared on YouTube to explain a serious situation involving sexual immorality between her and David E. Taylor for 16 months.
Some of you may be familiar with David E. Kelly.
He gave a deposition regarding using ministry money for unlawful personal purposes. His answers were very crafty and questionable.
Now we’ve seen this before when another false teacher talked about angelic visitations while involved in adultery. He performed these sins even while well known Christian leaders were on stage, endorsing his ministry.
His name is Todd Bentley.
The saying goes…..“Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”
When you hear strange doctrines coming from people, if you don’t know your Bible and the God of the Bible, it’s very easy to be deceived.
And that’s not all.
More likely than not, sexual immorality is closely associated with it.
The point is simple. When there’s strange doctrines involved, sexual immorality will be closely associated.
Peter said these words in 2 Peter chapter 2 and verse 14….“…having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.”
In a recent video of David E. Taylor, he claims to be saying that pastors are speaking against his “divine ministry.”
Throughout his discourse, there’s no denial of the allegations of being sexually involved with Viki Yohe. Usually, if there’s false allegations, a person will defend their integrity.
To be charged with adultery, or with any kind of sexual immorality like porn, masturbation, prostitution, homosexuality, etc., when you’re involved in a very “powerful” ministry, you would do everything in your power to defend yourself against the charges, IF YOU’RE INNOCENT.
Instead, we see people use the same spiritual cliche’s that are hollow.
“If you speak against me and my powerful ministry, God will get you.”
The sad thing is, we all know that people have walked away from his “ministry.”
What also tends to happen is that he will do everything in his power to stop the bleeding. He’s being attacked. So, he is counter punching. It’s not that he’s being attacked.
He’s being EXPOSED.
Now regarding his claim of “visitation” of the Lord Jesus in a face to face encounter, it’s clear to me that the Lord does appear to people from time to time, but if such divine encounters occurred, it’s so sacred, that people will have a marked changed about them and they will more than likely not advertise the encounter.
In Viki Yohe’s YouTube video, if memory serves me correct, she accused David Kelly of being involved with another woman and he dumped Yohe. If this is true, if you’ve had an encounter with the Lord Jesus, you would NEVER engage in conduct that would bring questions to your walk in the Lord.
True ministers of the Lord are more concerned about the integrity of their relationship with God than with their ministry. In fact, more often than not, a minister can do without ministry.
You love the Lord more than the “ministry.”
So David E. Kelly’s claim to have had a Face To Face encounter with Jesus, if these allegations are true, are very suspect at best.
Then you have the very words of Jesus Himself in Matthew 24, verse 11
“Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.”
Matthew 24:23-28 (NKJV Strong’s)
“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.
Did you notice the two places that Jesus mentioned that false prophets will use to attract you to them?
Look…Here is the Christ.
Look…There is the Christ.
Look…He is in the desert.
Look…He is in the inner rooms.
These two places, the desert, and inner rooms are locations.
The desert is dry and the inner rooms are overt and covert secrets.
David E. Kelly said in one video about an “elite anointing.”
No such thing in the Bible.
They all begin with “Look.”
In order for you to look, you have to believe what they’ve said they’ve seen.
Always take with a grain of salt those that said they’ve seen the Lord and then they tell you to come and “look.”
Has anyone noticed that no one says that they’ve seen satan?
We must remember that people are hungry for a spiritual encounter with the Lord but they’re looking in places where Jesus isn’t there.
Here’s another thing.
They always have “spooky music.”
Most keyboardists know that “stringed” instruments pull on the emotions of people and they become more open to “spiritual” things with the right keys and chords.
Personality people on stages can’t do without it.
Music is a power few don’t resist.
But here’s another thing.
It also disarms the unsuspecting, if you yield, you surrender common sense, you disarm due diligence in investigating these hucksters, and once they do these things, they completely abandon the correct teachings of the Scriptures.
Paul said in 2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NKJV Strong’s) “…for the time will come when they (believers) will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”
In one video, where David E. Kelly was talking, while some may feel bad about him, we should feel even worse for the ones that were on the stage behind him.
It breaks my heart to look at people being deceived.
But the houses where there’s full of people, Proverbs 14:15 is all over the place.
If there’s ever a time we need to be even more discerning, it’s these times. But it’s a clear moment that we all should be aware of.
The coming of the Lord is imminent.
False prophets are rising with more frequency.
Paul said in 2 Timothy 3:13 (NKJV Strong’s) “But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
Take the time to investigate their fruit.
The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 7:15-20 (NKJV Strong’s) “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”
So at this time, it’s best to declare “Face To Face” as a very suspecting event and to steer clear of things like this. You can get more watching a man milk a goat than a man speaking great swelling idle words.
It’s when a person had their sin exposed that you would find them contrite and broken in their hearts for departing from the Lord and entering into sin.
A person will do one of two things.
If he’s innocent, fight the charges.
If they’re guilty, “Godly sorrow that works repentance, leading to salvation…”
Regarding David E. Kelly, we’ve seen him fight the charges but when you use a lot of spiritual cliche’s that we’ve heard before from other personality false prophets caught in sin, it’s clear that something isn’t right.
What is David E. Kelly also fighting?
To keep getting PAID.
If the money stops, you have to work for a living.
Paul said, “For the love of money is the root of all evil.”
You can’t sit a false prophet down. And you can’t make a false prophet sit down.
Ladies. Learn to guard your heart according to Proverbs 4:23.
Learn to be a lot more discerning and not allow yourself to be captured by the smooth words of a false prophet.
Sadly, Viki Yohe got taken as many women that are gullible.
Ladies, don’t be another victim.
If you’re thinking about getting close to a man of God, if he’s married, you have no right even thinking about it.
Keep your heart clean.
If you see a ring on him, walk away from him.
It’s not worth the fires of hell for one moment of pleasure.
It’s been a long while since the last blog but it’s good to take a break and then resume as needed.
No, I never relapsed into porn. So now that’s kicked to the curb, we see that a lot has transpired in a while.
According to Fox News, by way of the CDC, STD’s in America and perhaps it could be said, around the world are on the increase.
The preaching of “safe sex” isn’t working because when you’re in the heat of passion, to stop to put a rubber on destroys the moment.
As far as Christians that are married, conception is expected.
But for the world, we know that it’s a set up.
In one of my past blogs, with first hand information, we know that the condom manufacturer is in bed with the abortion industry to ensure condom failure to increase the chance of a pregnancy, thus, increase the chance to perform an abortion to harvest body parts for money.
According to a Medical Research group that used hidden recording to discover this horrendous practice, we now see that sadly, nothing goes to waste…….except the life of that child, brutally murdered in the womb.
On another front, STD’s is also a lucrative business for the medical field.
In another one of my past blogs, we’ve discovered that in Puerto Rico, a strain of STD’s mutates to defeat the medicine.
Hence, the purpose of this blog.
One thing always leads to another.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases will continue because of the lust in the heart.
Porn or fantasy sex by way of masturbation, for some gets old and the need to “connect” with a body ensues. Then once you’ve had him or her, you look for others to increase the excitement.
The CDC has already put the warning out that multiple partners increase the risks of acquiring STDs, including AIDS.
But in England, there is news that flesh eating diseases are emerging. It won’t be long before it turns into an epidemic.
And chances are, so far, there’s no reports of it in the United States, but it’s a matter of time. Or worse, it’s already here and the media, like other STD reports, isn’t reporting it.
So if you insist on fornication, this consequential judgment is waiting for anyone willing to ignore self discipline.
Many males and female have said, “It’s never gonna happen to me.” And then you sense something wrong in your system, you go to the doctor to get checked, or worse, you don’t go at all. Suddenly, your statement comes to haunt you.
Self discipline can’t be done on your own.
You need the Lord Jesus in your life. You must be born again. It’s only by repentance of dead works, and faith towards God, through our Lord Jesus Christ can one exercise self control to avoid the consequences of sin on the earth.
But worse, is should you die before you make Jesus Lord over your life, it’s too late and the “Wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
You can read about these things in the links below.
The last place where sexual immorality ought to be is in a Christian School.
Lately, what we’ve been seeing is women predation on male teens in Middle and High School.
Granted, teens do fantasize about sex with teachers, but rarely do we see male teens muster up the courage to “make a move” on their teachers. Male teens, more than likely, will make a move on classmates. Not that it’s never happened. It has, it’s just a major fear factor for young teens to approach a female teacher.
On the other hand, female teachers are getting bolder and young male teens are on the sexual predation menu. It goes with saying that male predation of female students is just as horrible and occurs as well.
It is common now. More common than we thought.
While we should be upset and appalled by these alleged actions, we see that it’s not just the men involved in taking advantage of women. We see that it’s now common practice for women to “flirt” with underage boys. But it goes beyond flirting. We see regularly fornication and or adultery.
Hebrews 13:4 says “Marriage is honorable among all and the bed undefiled (un-soiled) but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”
There used to be a line that female teachers wouldn’t cross but now, we see that the lines no longer exist, at the very least. That underage boys is fair game for the lust filled heart of a woman. This is not to say that this woman in question is a born again follower of Christ.
If so, she betrayed her Lord for the pleasures of sin with a then minor.
There’s several things we could talk about but in the Bible, we see that feminine predation of men is common.
Delilah was one. She played both sides of the fence. Married to Samson but sexually available to other men (see Judges 14:18-20). Now while this Scripture doesn’t give the appearance that she committed adultery, the phrase “plowed with my heifer’ could be an indication that she committed adultery, or it could be taken that her countrymen put serious pressure on her to get her to pressure Samson to reveal the riddle. This is more common and it is a generally accepted interpretation.
Though Jezebel was married to Ahab, she orchestrated complete control of men in the house of Baal with the use of the threat of death and sex. The temple prophets, 450 men were also possibly male sexual prostitutes.
Some will say that there is no Scripture to support this but associated with the Baals are the Ashtoreths (associated with feminine gods of fertility, see 1 Samuel 12:10). Concurring with this is the pattern spoken of in the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ (see Revelation 2:20-22) regarding Jezebel teaching sexual immorality in the local church.
We talk all the time about male predation and it is real. But there is also female predation. Females could be just as vicious a predator for sex as males.
They will uses their femininity to overpower a male but lately, the younger ones are in their crosshairs. Boys just maturing into puberty.
At this age, between around the age of 11 to 19, most boys have already sexually experimented with themselves in some form of sexuality, manually stimulating themselves to release sexual tension, commonly called masturbation. Should this happen by “wet dreams” or masturbation, at first, it’s a euphoric experience that awakens them sexually. It quickly becomes a drug and hooks them into experiencing orgasms more and more.
Once this is established in a young boy, over time, it becomes the most difficult thing to break.
Sexual pictures in his mind triggers him sexually and he will relentlessly pursue the experience over and over again because of the design of the human body in a male. As Dr. William Struthers said, a male is “wired for sex.”
Visual stimulation sets off a chemical chain reaction in the body of a male that, when yielded to, will not relent until orgasm is achieved or deliverance from God in obedience to His Word, yielding to holiness.
If you do not bridle your urges and impulses, lust will take you further than you’re willing to go, cost you more than you’re willing to pay, and keep you longer than you’re willing to stay.
With over 33 years of bondage to masturbation with multiple relapses, I am aware of the rage within me. The Lord spoke to me and said that “You can’t claim that you’re delivered when you commit the same sin you claim to be delivered from.”
Whether they would be aroused by sexually explicit pictures on the Internet or TV, the games they play on their Xbox, or a teacher in the classroom, or the constant barrage of young females leaving little to the imagination on the streets, classrooms, gym class, cheerleading, watching female sports, or other common places.
The sexual attraction surrounds them to perk their interest.
In the classroom, the eye contact and other forms of expressing sexual interest is now common place. But now, it’s exceeding every boundary.
Sexual predators are real in men and women.
It’s a longing for something or someone to be satisfied and they refuse to find full satisfaction in the Lord. Unbridled, the passion, urges, and impulses are engulfing everything suppressing self control to seek sexual release. They burn with lust and set out to victimize a male, no matter how young they are.
It is also about controlling a male.
The foundation of female predation is about exercising complete ruling control over a man. A way to the heart of a man is not through his stomach but beyond his zipped up pants.
He knows that if he is not strong in heart and mind, his body will yield.
A man could be ruled by his upper head or his lower head.
Boys do not know that sexual sin with a smooth talking seductress that her house and bed is the staircase to hell. Without any controls, he plunges headlong down a staircase. Not knowing that, as the Book of Proverbs tells us, she has slain many mighty men.
Yes, men that didn’t know any better. Very few, like Joseph, understood the price and avoided the seductress by running for his life. Joseph was imprisoned twice.
The pit, and the prison.
But if you were to ask Joseph if he would have ran again, without batting an eye, he would show you how it’s done.
What could a parent do to help his son avoid these demonically inspired traps?
First, you have to look closely for certain signs that puberty is taking place or it has taken place. His interests in females takes on a different meaning. His internet interests. His movie selections. His conversations about women changes. Who he’s hanging out with. Does he blush or had he adjusted to conversations about women? There’s other signs but use this for starters.
Visit with his teacher regularly. Make sure that they know that you are the parent in action, not just in title. Be proactive when necessary. Meaning, surprise encounters if possible. When you see something that is out of the ordinary, do not be quick to dismiss it. Investigate it until you’re satisfied that nothing sexually is going on.
If something sexually is ongoing between a minor and a teacher, report it immediately. Then seek help for you and your son.
If feminine predation is not discouraged, more young underage boys will step into the arena of life as victims.
It’s no telling what they will become if they do not get the help they need.
We do not need the spirit of sexual predation turn a man into a “Ted Bundy.”
And for that matter, that same spirit is not impossible for females turning into a Ted Bunny either.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 says….“That which has been is what will be,
That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which it may be said,
“See, this is new”?
It has already been in ancient times before us.”
Many of you were surprised when they came out with this but anyone that has followed this alarming trend knew that it would be a matter of time.
Its purpose is so that one person cannot tell the difference of gender between another. So confused, a person will engage in sex with another person regardless of their assigned gender.
That’s the whole point.
Sexual immorality in a confused state of mind.
The deliberate engagement of sex outside marriage is just another form of perversion to keep men and women trapped in the lust of their flesh and mind.
And they will fight to keep their sin. As long as their emotional attachment to sin is alive, they will do everything to fight truth.
As Paul said in Romans 1:18….“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness…”
The reason why they suppress the truth is because according to Paul in 2 Corinthians 4:4, the “god of this world has blinded the minds of those that believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel which is the image of Christ should shine unto them.”
The “god” of this world is no other than satan himself.
People could be so blinded that they will argue and fight to get you to accept a man as a woman. They will pass laws and decrees to force you to accept their surgically altered gender. And if you resist, heavy penalties, including possibly jail sentences may be imposed.
It will not be enough to go to Civil Court to sue a person that is against transgenderism. They will seek to take everything away from you, including your money and freedom. But we know that they will look to impose the death penalty to impose such a fear on you that you would capitulate and surrender to their will.
Sounds like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, doesn’t it?
The fear of death would make some walk away from Christ, saving their necks. But we cannot deny Christ because Christ will deny us if we do.
Jesus said in Matthew 10:32-33 “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.”
1 John 5:19 says “…We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.”
This sway is the evil influence seeking to trap every human being willing to stay in sin and accept sin as the only way to go. To go against the trend of sin and its acceptance of transgenderism will bring great wrath upon those that preach deliverance in Jesus’ name.
Paul also said in Ephesians 4:17-19 that “…This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.”
We’ve seen transgender males surgically altered, transforming themselves into women. But one thing is interesting.
Surgical alterations, hormonal and testosterone injections NEVER altered their DNA or their male or female biological cells.
Things folks never tell you about for fear of the truth.
A female MMA fighter took on a transgender male and said after being beat that she never felt so “overpowered” before, or words to that effect.
A male transgender easily beat a field of women in a running race.
Bruce Jenner won the ESPY award.
At the place where they held the awards, everyone in that audience were looking at a surgically altered male but Bruce was a dead giveaway when he began to speak.
In California and NY, they’re getting laws passed to criminalize anyone that mispronounce the gender of a surgically altered transgender.
In other twist, the push to allow genderless to become legal is making huge waves.
Jesus spoke of the days of Noah and Lot in Matthew 24:36 and Luke 17:26.
In these two periods of time, the hearts of men and women were so dark that the Lord brought judgment upon them.
One by way of a flood, killing the entire population except 8, and the other by way of fire and brimstone, destroying those cities with the exception of 3 persons.
Their sins brought upon them the sore displeasure of Almighty God.
We’re headed in the same direction.
But before this happens, the gospel must be preached throughout all the world, and then the end will come.
So in understand the times that we’re living in, we can see that the culmination of all things is at hand. God is merciful and has longsuffering beyond imagination. He desires “all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.”
At the same time, satan is looking to trap more men and women in delusional perversion to fill hell with sinners.
With the deceptive, depraved acts of homosexuality, transgenderism, and all sorts of perversion operating in broad daylight, the true believers must put on the armor of light, discern the times that we’re in, and stay close to the Lord.
We must constantly warn the wicked and the backslider.
We must teach and live righteous lives before the Lord.
It’s just a matter of time before the Lord comes.
Are you ready?You could read about this foul sin here
Obviously, there is sadness in the Playboy world.
But we have to put things into perspective.
It’s very easy to condemn people but we also must understand that the Lord Jesus said that they are condemned already.
Jesus said in John 3:18-21….“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
You can’t condemn someone that is already condemned.
Today, many preachers live in hypocrisy like I did.
That one peek at a Playboy magazine aroused our flesh to view porn on scales unimagined.
I’ve read about a story of a pastor robbing banks to be able to by porn on the internet or PPV cable or satellite. Of pastors using their computers to finish their sermon in their pastor’s study, tell their secretaries to go home, and click on to site after site of porn in the house of worship.
No doubt, masturbating in their pastor’s study while watching porn.
That’s what sexual objectification does. It’s idolizing a woman’s body, pretending to have her sexually. Not realizing that you’ve worshipped her body as if her body was god. You bowed down in sexual worship, not realizing that behind every lustful eye, you are worshipping demons.
That’s why what Jesus said in Matthew 5:27-30 is there. The right eye lusts for her sexually, and the right hand engages in solo sex or outright touching another woman in adultery or fornication.
Many would love to think that Hugh Hefner is in heaven. Many will joke and say that he will be in Playboy heaven with angelic bunnies. Far from reality. You see, there is no sin in heaven. There’s God forgiven, sanctified, blood washed saints that were sinners in heaven.
But for certain, sinning in heaven is not happening there ever.
And there is no sinning in hell either.
Jesus said, “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
You will be too involved seeking to get out and too involved seeking relief from the pain and misery associated with the condemned place of the abode of departed Christ-less spirits.
Meaning that the pain of torment will be beyond what a person will be able to bear.
There is no Playboy mansion in hell. There aren’t any bunnies there either.
The pain and misery of hell will pale in comparison to the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.
Just imaging being responsible for plunging many men and women into hell by way of sexual immorality. Hugh Hefner will bear his own sins but he will also bear the responsibility of facilitating sexual immorality to plunge man people into hell.
We all know that there is a slight chance for everyone to get saved but when you live an unrepentant lifestyle, the odds of heaven for the unrepentant are very very slim.
Remember, the thief on the cross next to Jesus got saved moments from his own death. That’s why there is a very slight chance. But how many sinners would seriously look to the Lord when they are moments away from death themselves?
The Playboy mansion and its wicked activities drove men and women into the abyss of sexual immorality, leading down the staircase into the chambers of death.
And if that isn’t enough, countless men and women, perhaps, were infected with STDs and some women got pregnant.
I dare say that many of them killed their babies in abortion.
But this activity wasn’t just in the mansion. All across the world, their connections is apparently obvious. PPV cable or satellite, Playboy magazines, iPhones, CD’s and DVD’s made it possible to participate and be connected to viewing fornication on demand, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
This, and his death, is nothing to celebrate but the world will do everything in its power to celebrate this man and applaud his sexual empire. That’s the way the world works because it is, as Paul said, “the course of this world.”
My exposure to this wickedness started with 42 Street in NYC. While going to see decent movies along the route, there would be movie theater after movie theater of sexual immorality. Porn shops by the dozen. It was a haven for all manner of crime, adultery, fornication, bisexuality, and homosexuality.
The newspaper stands would be filled with Playboy magazines that tempted the imaginations of man. Fantasy sex which leads to pornography, and leads even deeper to act out sex in masturbation, adultery, fornication, and other forms of sexual immorality.
Trapping millions into the slave trade of sexual immorality.
Entrapped in this sin were billions of men and women, searching for intimacy, or to get a quick pick me up. The pleasures of sin dominates the fantasy world of men and women around the world.
There’s no question that Playboy played a central part in opening up the way to further sexual immorality.
The pursuit of the pleasures of the lust of the flesh, the eyes, and the pride of life intensified.
Playboy wouldn’t be enough. You go further into hard core porn and tap into the area of criminal sexual predation. For most men, the insatiable desire takes a man further than he is willing to go. Takes a woman to do daring things too. Some women are just as trapped as men.
There is nothing to celebrate here.
But Jesus can free any man or woman, but they must desire to leave their thirst for the flesh behind. They must cry out to God for His true love that will never be found in flesh. The Son can make a person free if they want to.
You can’t make people be free. They have to want to be free, and then there is the fight to stay free from every contaminating influence and every enslaving yoke of sexual immorality.
This happens when you find in the Savior all the love you will ever need for the rest of your life.
So what will it be?
Continue in sin, or to be free from it?
It’s not worth going to hell over.
The choice is up to you.

There’s many professed believers, even in matrimony, that believe that oral sex is no big deal.
In this report from FOX News, even in monogamous relationships, you could acquire the Human papillomavirus (HPV) disease.
Which further emphasizes the fact that STDs is there for a reason.
Many will defend oral sex and that’s expected.
Sadly, to their own peril, but at least you know that you could have avoided it if you’ve exercised sexual discipline.
Whether you’ve watched porn, then introduce what you’ve seen into your bedroom, we should never sin against the Lord and against our own bodies in the fulfillment of the lusts of the flesh and mind.
Many will argue that what goes on in the bedroom is your business.
But when the Lord institutes STD as consequential judgment against sin, God was already in your bedroom judging your sin.
A man walked across the street while I was waiting at the light with a shirt that said….
ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME
I said, yup, He sure will judge you.
Shirts like this is just a spin on Matthew 7:1.
When a person is convicted of sin and attempts to make arguments to continue in sin, shirts like these is a clear attitude of deliberate intent to defy God and His Word.
For the record, there is no specific verse in the Bible that declared that oral sex is forbidden. There is no specific verse that declared that masturbation is forbidden.
The other argument is that if the Bible is silent on these areas, we should be silent too.
On the contrary, just because the Bible is silent, it doesn’t give you permission.
Because there is no specific verse giving you permission to engage.
God put within us the ability to discern right from wrong.
When we’re asking questions to obtain permission, it is a search to justify sin where the Bible is silent. The Bible’s silence demand you come to the conclusion that you do not have permission, and therefore, you do not have God’s authorization.
PLUS……since STDs are associated with oral sex, or sexual immorality as a whole, it is further evidence that it’s prohibited.
If we were smart, we would see that STDs are only associated with lawless sexual acts and do everything in our power, as true believers in the Lord to be obedient and abstain from the very “appearance of evil.”
In normal sexual relationships, within holy matrimony, you are practicing safe sex. Besides, if you truly love your wife or husband, you would never introduce things of the world to do harm to them.
But, like I said, people will disagree.
The reason for such disagreement is that they’re experiencing a world of pleasure that they’re unwilling to give up. And that, in and of itself, is a bondage which hurts you in the long run.
If I am legally married, will oral sex send me to hell?
Absolutely not, unless you’re presently engaged in fornication, adultery, homosexuality, bisexuality, zoophilia, and other forms of sexual immorality, those sins are hell bound sins.
SO if oral sex in a monogamous faithful husband and wife relationship will not send me to hell, then why bring this up in the first place?
We see that STDs is connected to oral sex.
IF you want the HPV disease that is associated with oral sex, by all means, continue to engage in the act. It’s a matter of time before the results manifest. Just trying to get people to see that there’s certain things that could be avoided. It’s a clear warning to you.
Now if you want to ignore this warning, then it’s on you. You were aware of the risks and decided to continue in this behavior.
Proverbs 14:18 says……“The simple inherit folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.”
Proverbs 22:3 says…….“A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.”
Oh, btw, this HPV disease isn’t one of those things that flare up until perhaps months or years after acquisition. That is, if you continue to engage in oral sex, the possibility of it flaring up is inevitable.
All the more incentive to abstain from this behavior that opened the door to the disease in the first place.
Psalm 107:17 says, “Fools! Because of your transgressions and because of your iniquities are afflicted.”
You do not have to be afflicted.
Meaning……you are a fool when you open yourself to sin and reap its rewards.

Proverbs 18:13 says “He who answers a matter before he hears it,
It is folly and shame to him.”
Then verse 17 says….“The first one to plead his cause seems right,
Until his neighbor comes and examines him.”
There’s two sides to every story. We love to assume that we have the whole story when in fact, we only have a very small piece.
I am guilty of this in many ways. Including hearing this situation regarding Fred Hammond doing a gospel album with Snoop Dog.
I answered a matter before I heard it.
First, we all know what the Scriptures says in 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.
There must be a distinction between the believer and the unbeliever. There is no equality with the righteous and the unrighteous. There can be no fellowship with light and darkness. NO accord with Christ and Belial. Etcetera.
Based on this premise of Scripture, and another one in James 4:4 that friendship with the world is “enmity with God.”
When it comes to these two Scriptures, it’s very easy to put on the Pharisee hat and attack something without hearing the matter.
Based on actual fact, not word of mouth or hear say, this story is more than what meets the eye.
First, I didn’t directly apologize when I should have for acting and saying something without some knowledge as to what is really going on behind the scenes. We make these mistakes to crucify any Christian that may be sent by God to be the one that may be instrumental by God to reach someone that others may not be in a position to reach.
The only thing that I will say about additional insight that some or most of us are not privilege to see or know, is that we who are in the Body of Christ are zealous for the Lord. But we must never let zeal cloud our judgment based on assembling and segregating points of Scriptures to justify a point. In many cases, we pontificate our points and blaspheme anyone with a plausible view. We do take it personal and we must never that mistake.
We do a better job attacking the people that are legitimate in the Body of Christ than attacking the forces of darkness.
Consider this Biblical example. The disciples were upset at Jesus for talking to the woman at Jacob’s well. As the woman said, “Samaritans have no dealings with the Jews.”
Jesus ministered to her anyway because something bigger than inner fighting among cousins would take place. The whole city came out to meet Jesus all because Jesus didn’t condemn the woman to hell but offered her living water. In another incident, Jews bought a woman caught in adultery. Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. GO! And sin no more.”
We have learned the art of condemning people before hearing the matter.
It is called “Rush to judgment.”
We’ve established a tradition over the commandment.
Jesus said “Go into all the world” and we’ve established a tradition of “condemn all the world.”
Jesus said, “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
Why is it that we want to call fire down (see Luke 9:51-57) on those that need the fire of His compassion, not to excuse sin, but to save them from sin?
Have we become so detached from the power of the gospel that we quickly condemn, not only the world, but anyone that may be used as an instrument to reach the world?
We’ve therefore, established the tradition of condemning the people whom God might be using to win a soul into the kingdom.
We all know the dangers of the world diluting the power of the gospel. We’ve seen where “Hip Hop” has and is continuing to have a demonic influence on young Christians that never bring fruit into maturity because of never disassociating themselves from the world and it’s music.
We know the dangers of a well known minister of the gospel in song to join a man of the world to do a “gospel album.”
The world has a nasty habit of making worldly music appear safe to listen to.
And when you add to the mix any “gospel” to the world, it is a potential trap for darkness to lord itself over unsuspecting believers.
But on the flip side, what if the Lord is using Fred Hammond to reach Snoop or his faithful listeners?
Jesus still knows how to plant seed in places where we don’t believe His seed has a chance. Jesus still knows how to reach the lost when we’ve failed miserably. Jesus still knows where the fish are and casts a wide net into the deep, even when we don’t “approve.”
What if the Lord knows something that we do not know?
We think that we know everything that God is doing.
Is the gospel powerless or powerful?
Who gave us the right to say that God would never use Fred Hammond or Tasha Cobbs or anyone for that matter in the music world? With Tasha Cobbs, I do not have all of the information so the jury better remain out on this one. As wicked as Hip Hop is with its demonic purpose, darkness cannot force light to another part of the room.
Look at what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 5:9-10…..“I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world.”
Is Fred Hammond keeping company with Snoop Dog?
When we mean keep company, we mean celebrating and participating in smoking dope, sexual immorality, partying, clubbing, hookers, harlots, porn, solo and acting out sex with prostitutes.
There is a difference between “keeping company” and being among people that may or may not be involved with sin.
What if this is Snoop’s last chance for coming to Christ and Fred Hammond’s gospel track is the seed planted to start something happening?
Who are we to tell the Lord how to do what He does best without anyone’s permission?
When you were in the world, God did everything to reach you. The Lord is doing the same for Snoop. Like it or not.
I didn’t know this and my daughter ran information to me that Snoop’s mom is a preacher and has been praying for her son to come to the Lord. Could this be the one thing in this album that shows signs of the Lord getting ready to manifest a “glorious salvation?”
We do not know, but to rush to judgment and answer a matter before it is heard, is folly and a shame.
I do not endorse Snoop’s gospel album nor do I recommend listening to it IF Snoop is not legitimately saved. We’ve all seen what happens with the world that take on doing something for “God.”
Separation from the things and activities of the world is different from celebrating and participating in the things of the world.
To my knowledge and based on first hand knowledge, Fred Hammond neither celebrated nor participated in the past or present worldly activities of Snoop Dog. Let me also say that making a gospel album saves no one. Knowing the Lord in the pardoning of your sins in repentance and receiving salvation, being born again by the power of the Holy Spirit is the way to salvation.
Participating in a Snoop Dog gospel album raised serious eyebrows.
In fact, it brought about wrath from some segments of the Body of Christ on Fred Hammond.
James 1:19-20 says…..“So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”
Many of us believe that we should remain separated from the world and not bother with them. However, when Jesus is found among the world in the nation of Israel, he gets a puzzled look from His disciples who would later be commissioned (Pun intended) to do the same.
Before they turn away from the Lord there was a couple that sang a song “Jesus, With Skin On.” We are the one that is to be salt and light in the world. Who are we to withdraw our light or the light in someone else because they were asked to do a legitimate gospel track?
Let’s be careful and not be quick to condemn unless we know without a shadow of a doubt that legitimate believers celebrated and participated in the sins of the world. When such irrefutable evidence of collusion in sin is confirmed, it is expected of us to sound the alarm to warn the believer.
But when there is no evidence, the rush to judgment is no different from answering a matter before we hear it.
Many will not like what I shared. That goes with the territory. But I am not absolute and God is. All of what we say is subject to be judged by God.
If this is a plan to save Snoop before it is too late, let’s not interfere with how God may be doing this. Based on inside information, not hear say, this plan to save Snoop was in the making 17 years ago on Snoop’s tour bus. That’s all I will say about it.
Could it be that God is using a man that isn’t supposed to be here?
Fred Hammond told a story of his about him being aborted almost. Could it be that God saved Fred Hammond’s life just to be used by God to get Snoop into the kingdom? Could it be that Snoop’s mother’s prayers may be answered because somebody prayed to save Fred’s life in the womb?
Gamaliel said a few words of wisdom that I will share to this new generation.
“Leave these “men” alone. If this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing, but if it is of God, you CANNOT overthrow it-lest you even be found to fight against God.”
