Could it be that God is using a chicken to teach man, in particular, perverted, unregenerate man the gospel? The gospel of creation?
For those of you that know already, the leadership of Chick Fil A took and made a vocal stand against same sex marriage.
In the blink of an eye, LGBTQ sent messages out that they would “boycott” (a well documented Civil Rights tactic) the establishment in an failed attempt to send fear in the world.
In particular to Christians.
Quite the contrary is occurring.
McDonalds and KFC is joining Chick Fil A in supporting their stand against same sex marriage. Usually, the opposite occurs. Most establishments would have capitulated under the political incorrectness stress and pressure of LGBTQ.
But we are seeing the trend reverse.
First, I believe it’s because these establishments are reading the numbers that LGBTQ is a very small minority with a very big lying demonic spirit, mouthing off lies and deception to make it seem as if they are bigger than they are. And that they make it seem like they have teeth, every time they act like they want to bite.
It’s hard to bite when all you have is gums.
But as a roaring lion, the devil’s teeth was pulled at Calvary and Jesus triumphed over death and darkness under the earth for three days and three nights, was raised from the dead, and Jesus is seated at the right hand of the throne of His Majesty in heaven.
Second, the food establishment knows that even if there were to be a boycott by LGBTQ, their money wouldn’t be missed. For Chick Fil A and other supporting establishments, it’s not a calculated risk. And these supporting establishments could and should anticipate residual revenue should Chick Fil A be overwhelmed with people coming on August 1.
And a word for the Mayor of Chicago, you are going to see revenue and residual revenue.
And just know that it came from God.
Will you repent and turn your life over to Christ as a result? Only God knows.
It is a bold statement to let LGBTQ know that it is not running the show like they used to and they know it.
Like toddlers and adolescents, standby for their immature temper tantrums.
As Paul said in Romans 5:20b-21,
“But where sin abounded, grace does much more abound, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Isn’t it a shame that LGBTQ hijacked Civil Rights from the African Americans? And sadly, it’s reprehensible that high ranking Civil Rights Leaders that marched in these non violent protests in the past have hopped in bed with LGBTQ.
But thank God that there are independent thinking African American pastors that see the lie for what it is and we refuse to toe their perverted line to swallow the poisonous lies of sin based on deception. Give us the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ over sexual perversion any day.
We must also understand that it’s not just about the sin of homosexuality.
It’s sexual perversion of any kind. Adultery, fornication, bisexuality, bestiality, porn, self gratification, commonly called masturbation.
And if you are a pastor that has yet to speak against sexual immorality, it is clear that you need to get off the sidelines and speak against the sexual sins of our times.
Provided that you are not a hypocrite in the pulpit.
Your silence is deafening.
In fact, if you remain silent, your silence may be deemed by others as permission to engage in Secret Sexual Sins.
You are to speak up against all sin, including the sin of homosexuality. If not, you are party with the LGBTQ agenda and James 4:4 is the authority Scripture that determines your traitor/enemy of God status.
Stop hiding, avoiding the issue, and come out, and speak boldly against the sinful spirit of homosexuality, and all sexual immorality of our times.
Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:4
“In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of the that believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of the glory of Christ, Who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
The devil has blinded them to accept these lies and deceptions.
Sin and race are two different issues.
To mingle the two is deception.
In addition to boycotting, they allegedly sent the word to same sex partners to show up and also perform modest lewd acts in front of some of these establishments in retaliation.
We are now seeing that as a result of Mike Huckabee’s FB page to support Chick Fil A on Wednesday, August 1, 2012, is one of many solutions to counter the LGBTQ agenda.
Believers in Christ, all across the United States are leading the effort to support our fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord.
First, we must understand that God “desires all men to saved and come to the knowledge of the truth,” according to 1 Timothy 2:4.
We know that not everyone that serve behind the counters of Chick Fil A and those around that may see a surge of believers come to some of these places that they may not know the Lord. That’s where the church, with it’s bold witness must uphold the standards of the Word of God and share the gospel when the opportunity arises. We must give an answer of the reason of the hope that abides in us.
Actually, Peter, by the Holy Spirit said it like this.
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed. For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.”
Gleaning from portions of Romans 12, Paul reminds us….
“Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good…Bless those that persecute you; bless and do not curse…Do not be wise in you own opinion….Repay no one evil for evil…Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.” says the Lord. Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Go and have a good time before the Lord.
The world might be seeing a great display of camaraderie. While the numbers are encouraging, what’s important is we provide the world the kind of representation that glorifies the Lord.
The devil is prepared to incite, bait, and resort to things to lure us to drop our guard. But we need not fear what they will do. Perhaps, there may not even be an incident, which would be good because a peaceful assembly to enjoy some good chicken would be a great thing.
Remember, the devil is a liar. And his children may not like the truth but this is what the church is supposed to be and do.
We are “the pillar and ground of the truth.”
We are to “speak the truth in love.”
We are to “walk in truth.”
One more thing.
Isn’t it powerful that when God created the animals on the earth that they were made male and female, and He commanded them to be fruitful and multiply? Isn’t it powerful that when Adam searched for someone compatible that none was found? But Adam took note that the animals paired off, male and female, and they had each other. But Adam was all alone. That is he had no one of his kind to share life with.
Remember, God is Spirit according to John 4:24.
Man was created in the image of God, spirit and soul, both of which are eternal, and he was placed in a physical container. And the Lord God said, “It is not good for Adam to be alone.”
It is evident that Adam wanted a female and the Lord provided a woman. Suitable for his needs. Man wasn’t created for woman, woman was created for man. God was careful enough to make someone completely opposite, yet, compatible. There was no confusion about what Adam needed. Suddenly, Adam was put to sleep and when He woke up, God brought a beautiful woman to him.
Bone of my bone flesh of my flesh.
She shall be called Woman…named Eve….mother of all living.
The animals serve as a reminder that God knew exactly what He was doing.
The chicken, on creative instinct, knew to find opposites of each other to have more chicken. If God created male chicken and male chicken, there would be no chicken and Chick Fil A, and all other chicken establishments would not be in business. Perhaps breakfast, lunch, and dinner would be chicken-less had God decided to create male and male chicken.
No eggs for breakfast or brunch. No chicken fillet sandwiches. No grilled chicken. No gospel bird. No chicken parm. No potato salad. You gotta have eggs for potato salad.
Two male chickens after the fall of Adam, would have been the only chicken sandwich in history. And we could only imagine what chicken taste like.
Hence, the same principle applies if God created only two males or two females.
Perhaps God is speaking through chicken that animals have more sense than perverted humans.
I intend to be at one of the Chick Fil A establishments. I’ve asked members of Prevailing Word to join me, my wife and daughter. We intend to stand and be a witness. For what the Lord Jesus did for us over 2000 years ago, it’s the least we could do.
I encourage you to be salt and light for the Lord Jesus.
