Toronto: To Jail With You For Preaching To Homosexuals

In Torono, Canada, the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ is against the law as a “hate crime.”

Telling people to be saved from sin or be separated into the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, after the Great White Throne Judgment, violates their man made law.

No different than a fireman going into the building, telling people to escape to save themselves or they will burn to death.

In the United States, in Oregon and Washington States, there’s increasing resistance along these lines.

Free speech has been challenged because the gospel of Jesus Christ, with the convicting power of the Holy Spirit, is offensive to those that practice sin.

Sin offends the Lord and the righteous.

But here’s the kicker.

The Lord and His people offer the only remedy, in a loving way, to save people from their destructive vices and from the eternal judgment to follow should they die in their sins.

True gospel preachers do not use name calling, or other non Biblical methods to communicate the gospel. We call sin what the Bible calls sin. We identify and communicate the results of continuing in sin.

Smoking a cigarette wasn’t a major problem until finally, people came to their senses about its cancer causing affects. Then there’s a further exposure of the cigarette industry placing chemicals in these cigarettes to keep people hooked.

But, today, people are hooked. Young people, exposed to these habits continue to breathe in chemicals into their system.

Cigarette smoking is the door to all chemical abuse.

Much the same with sexual immorality.

Indoctrinating young people to the evils of sexual immorality has further harmed the general society. To the point that if no one warns the people, they will die in their sins.

Even if there’s a “preventative” medicine, the people will engage in risky sexual immoral behavior.

Then they happen to come within earshot of the preacher, lovingly warning people of the consequences of sin. In some cases, the Lord warns them day and night. For others, they hear the Word preached only one time, and enter into eternity before the day is over.

In Toronto, Canada, people want to sin in peace.

The preaching of the Word of God disturbs the “peace.”

Toronto police walks over and place the preacher in handcuffs.

The right to speak freely, the gospel of Jesus Christ is considered hate speech.

In America, the US Constitution is the only document that stands in the way of tyranny. As long as our elected leaders, some of them, believe in preserving, protecting, and defending the Constitution of the United States, preachers in America enjoy the right to speak freely.

To silence free speech ushers in the close of this Republic and the tyranny and violence associated with it will overtake this land.

The Puritans in the 1600’s left Europe to seek a land where they could practice their faith without tyranny and totalitarianism from catholicism. Read the history here

As a result of their departure, eventually, the United States of America formed.

Since July 4, 1776 to 2019, some 243 years, the Constitution has been preserved, protected, and defended against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

The moment this document is overturned, true believers in Christ will be fully persecuted, assaulted, martyrdom, beheadings, tortures, incarcerations, and other forms of disastrous harms will plague the land.

I wish to say that this will never happen, but it’s sure to come.

No human superpower remains.

One of the most fascinating things about the Bible is that in Bible prophecy, arguably, there’s no specific reference to America in Bible prophesy. Some of you reading this will use vague references to America. It’s a big fallacy to force a revelation where there’s no direct Biblical reference.

In Revelation, Daniel, and other references, symbols, types, and shadows are used to describe people, places, and things in the language they understood to convey to us what they saw. In some places, it’s plain. In other places, we still “…see through a glass darkly.”

But anyone can make the Bible say anything.

But you will be pressed to find a clear, decisive reference to America in the Bible.

To me, it’s God’s well kept secret. Deliberately kept out of the Bible.

Even satan didn’t have any clue as to the use of America in the last days.

1776, 1812, 1865, and 1964 were pivotal years in America. Of course there were other pivotal moments worthy of noting, make no mistake about it.

Times in which the fabric of this nation was about to be torn.

Now, more than ever, we’re seeing many people willing to walk away from the Constitution where adherence to this historic document is almost a thing of the past.

Name one country where socialism was successful.

North Korea, China, Vietnam, Cuba, Venezuela, Laos, Cambodia, Russia.

Go and live there, and tell us what you’ve found.

Of course there may be other nations but in just these listed above, free speech isn’t considered.

Are you ready to be persecuted for righteousness sake?

To be beheaded for standing for what you believe about the Lord Jesus?

Go to Nigeria, Iraq, Iran, and the Congo, and other places in the world. Where believers are shot, hung, beheaded, burned, houses of worship burned down, and believers in Iraq crucified for Jesus.

The day will come for us should this Republic removes the Constitution.

Just as sure as we’re living.

Porn’s BIG Secret

Cutting to the chase, once again, the Christian community, online newspapers, and other outlets identify that there’s a huge problem with Christians viewing pornography.

Pastors and believers all across the United States, and the world, are heavily involved with no apparent slowing or stoppage.

The Internet and our personal devices are great tools but they’ve been used consistently to view porn anywhere and at anytime.

But is porn the problem?

It’s only part of the problem.

It’s the bait on the hook. Or more so, the incremental increase to take things to the next step.

As one person puts it, it’s an accelerant.

When you want a bigger fire, you get more wood, gas, or other fuels to increase the fire.

Lines that pastors and believers says they would never crossed are easily crossed.

Look at James 1:14-15 (NKJV Strong’s) “But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.’

Within the heart of sinning people is the lustful desires lurking in the mind and flesh. It’s the desire to gratify themselves that takes them to places where such satisfaction could be achieved.

Paul told Timothy “Flee also YOUTHFUL lusts.”

Having said this, what lures men and women to watching porn?

Enhancing or accelerate the process to perform solo sex or masturbation.

When people watch porn, it’s not like sitting in a movie theater and eating popcorn. It’s about participating in sex without the physical partner there. In other words, it’s fantasy or pretend sex.

If you read these Christian articles about believers watching porn, you will notice that nothing or very little is said about masturbation or fantasy sex.

But this is what believers do that Christian Post, Charisma, or other Christian news outlets deliberately omit.

Perhaps, the reason why is when you talk about solo sex, fantasy sex, or the “M” word (masturbation), because the Bible is silent in its prohibition, it’s determined to be permitted.

It’s also possible that people that write about porn participate in masturbation.

They’re too ashamed to reveal the combination for fear of discovery of masturbation in their own lives.

Paul told us in Ephesians 5:11-14 (NKJV Strong’s) “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”

Just because it’s a shame, it doesn’t prohibit one from discussing it.

Discussing just the fact that masturbation is the reason behind porn is shameful. What’s prohibited is the play by play description or instruction on how to masturbate. That’s beyond shame.

It’s sinful and incites a person to participate in Secret Sexual Sins when a person read sex stories out of Hustler or The Forum.

As I’ve said before, just because the Bible is silent on a subject, it’s not to be taken as permission to engage.

When the assumption is taken to masturbate, this subject will not be addressed.

Self discipline is one of the fruit of the Spirit (see Galatians 5:22-24).

IF you’re crucified with Christ, then you are dead to sin. In fact, as Paul said……“dead to sin but alive unto God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Dead people don’t respond.

Therefore, if you’re dead, as far as we know with certainty, dead people don’t respond to lust in their heart, mind, and flesh to masturbate.

Selah!!!

So the lust in the flesh and mind places a demand to fulfill desire to achieve sexual satisfaction apart from marriage to the opposite sex.

There’s numerous reasons for this as I’ve written in the blog to explore the reasons why men and women masturbate, but as long as there’s a refusal to address the reason why believers watch porn, it’s no different than a dog chasing its tail.

UPDATE: Fred Hammond On Snoop Dog’s Gospel Album

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.”

The Weakened Believer – Secret Sexual Sins Has Zapped Our Strength

Unknown

The title of a Charisma article is a reminder. Although, I agree with the Charisma News article that Sexual Sins is weakening the Body of Christ, but I also agree with the fact that believers are already in a weakened position.

Why?

Jesus said in Matthew 26:41 “Watch and pray lest you fall into temptation. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.”

When we deliberately fail to watch and pray, the devil watches and we become his prey.

Since “The War Room” movie, I am assessing the strength of our local church. And I am also assessing if lasting change has been instituted to endure to the end. After a powerful movie, sometimes our emotions will compel us to initiate things. However, stemming from my own life, such grand promises require “stay with it power” to see it through to the end. It is then that we can properly assess our desire to stay with what was started in us by the Lord, or throw in the towel, and quit.

In Philippians 1:6, Paul says “…being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

But the Lord is not going to do it without your compliance to His will, expressed in His Word.

Jesus said in Luke 18:1 Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart,”

Galatians 6:9 says “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”

Faster and faster, we are seeing believers that regain their strength, and then in an instant, they lose it all in one moment of evil passion. Just as fast as they promise the Lord that they would never do that sin again, they slip back into the mud pit. I know what it’s like to climb out of sexual sins just to slip back in quickly.

1 Peter 5:8-9 says, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith…”

Sexual sins have devoured many strong and weak saints.

The media has pushed illicit sexual freedom and immorality upon the world and the professed believers in the church allowed the opposite of Psalm 101:3 be their favorite Scripture.

They have set wicked things before their eyes.

When you sit in front of the TV, Internet, or other forms of media, you are wide open for a covert and overt assault from satan to trip you up in your flesh and mind.

No child of God is strong enough to withstand the attacks of the enemy when you are outside the secret place of the Most High. When you are outside of the name of the Lord, which is a strong tower where the righteous run into it and they are safe, you are vulnerable.

James 4:7-10 says “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double- minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.” 

The more we are drawn away from God, we are drawn towards darkness.

Few realize that the ultimate goal of the enemy is to pull you into hell. The “cares, riches, and pleasures of this life” is designed to pull you out of God and heaven, and plunge you into hell forever.

The vision of satan is expressed through all forms of media. As long as we can see it and deceive ourselves into thinking that it will not affect us, we are caught in the snare of satan’s lies. Strongholds are developed, and we fight to keep these strongholds instead of fighting to destroy them with the Word of God.

It’s amazing how many baseless excuses we make to keep a sin that no longer has power over us. We will deceive ourselves into thinking that we are good and that God is good with it.

Foolish thinking.

God was never good with sin. He proved that on day one in heaven when lucifer and a third of the angels attacked. The angels that didn’t defect threw them all out and there was no place found for them. The revolt was so powerful that their were angels that were chained with everlasting chains and placed under darkness, reserved for judgment later.

Jude and verse 6 says, “And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;”

So it’s not just about sexual sins. It’s about getting believers in Jesus to defect and get them to throw away their salvation.

That one moment of sexual pleasure outside of the confines of holy matrimony is that one moment that satan was waiting for.

Hebrews 13:4 says “Marriage is honorable among all and the bed undefiled, but adulterers and fornicators God will judge.”

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 tells us that “fornicators….adulterers…will not inherit the kingdom of God.”

The weaker we become, the less likely we will choose to stand and fight. We allow our flesh to rule us to the point of overruling the Word of God and the Holy Spirit in us. We enter into hopelessness, hoping that God would not condemn us.

Romans 8:1-2 says, “There is therefore now no condemnation to those that are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free form the law of sin and death.”

As long as I walk in liberty as I obey the Word of God with the help of the Holy Spirit, I cannot be condemned.

If you keep finding yourselves under the power of sexual sin, turn to 1 Corinthians 10:13. The Holy Spirit will always make a way of escape. Thing is, are you willing to obey Him and take that way of escape?

Sin is a choice.

Decisions Determines Destiny.

What you decide to do has eternal consequences and ramifications.

If you are without strength,

(1) you need to go cold turkey and get on your knees to God in repentance and prayer.

(2) Then you need to be around strong men that either never walked in Secret Sexual Sins or were delivered a while (no less than three years free of porn and masturbation).

(3) Then you need to maintain your deliverance by not showing off to others in trying to teach them with less than three years of freedom yourself. Humility and humbleness of mind will keep you from being humiliated by God.

(4) Diligently apply the Scriptures daily, observing to do all that is written in the Word of God.

As Paul said, “Not a novice, lest being lifted up in pride he fall into the snare and condemnation of the devil.”

While the deliverance of the Lord is instantaneous, the maintenance of the deliverance is where the battle is won or lost. More often than not, it is lost during maintenance where a person is slowly drawn away from holiness back into sin. The excitement wears off and that’s where a man is more vulnerable to fall into sin after being tempted.

Like Samson, the locks on your hair is cut off, consecration is cast aside, your eyes are gouged out as you are tied between the post and made sport of. Acknowledge that you’re without strength, you are weak, and that you need God, and over time, the Lord will renew your strength like the eagles.
