Jesus: Tempted To Be A Homosexual?

Yes, you’ve read this right. Jesus was tempted to be a homosexual.

But first, this will be very offensive to some of you that still put out those false depictions of what Jesus looked like.

You know. Michael Angelo’s depiction of Christ. It is disturbing for anyone that knows the Bible to see these pictures. Years ago, someone said that by putting a “White” Jesus up it would impose upon Black folk that Jesus is white. Sort of like an additional slave mentality kind of thing.

I go to the south and when you walk into the homes of some black folk, you see these depictions of Jesus, John and Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King.

Am I talking right up in here?

I don’t mind John, Robert, and Martin. But Jesus?

Get rid of that picture. Get rid of that Black Jesus too. Get rid of those pictures. I know that you are not listening to me or the Bible. You’ve spent good money on those pictures and you are going to keep them on your wall. That’s fine for you. It’s not a heaven and hell issue, but is it?

You have fixated in your mind that this is what Jesus looked like. Just close your eyes and act like you are about to pray. Now Who do you see?

A white or a black Jesus.

The sad thing is that in most of these houses, folk don’t do what He said do, and yet, they have a picture, supposedly of what people want you to think He looked like.

No one that knows their Bible will ever put up one of those pictures again. All on FB, you see these white depictions of a sun tanned, slick haired, clean shaven or mustache and trimmed beard wearing, soft or effeminate looking Jesus.

I say again, that the way some people live, most of them will do things regardless of what the Bible says. That tells me that Jesus is your Savior, but He is not your Lord. There is a difference. There are those that call Him Lord but will not do what He said.

Jesus is a symbolical Lord to you and not really Lord over you. If He is your Lord, you would do what He said.

Why don’t people understand this?

Because it’s religious thinking and not relationship reality.

Note what the Bible says about the depiction of Jesus in Isaiah 53:1-2 (NKJ).

“Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.”

Listen to another translation…

“My servant grew up in the LORD’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him.”

Yet, in our minds is a fixation and depiction of a beautiful man.

The stained glass windows and pictures painted as murals in our churches point to a Savior. Folks, read Isaiah 53:1-2 and then look at the pictures you have and there is a very big difference in what you see and what your Bible says. Then why mention this at all? Because take a good look. No one can tell if this person that was used to depict Jesus is homosexual.

However, pictures can mean a thousand things. We are now seeing an attempt to put two Joseph’s up in a nativity scene and the baby Jesus. The far reaching affects of images play a major role in what people think. Just look in your newspapers or go to the Internet. Images drives things.

This leads into the discussion.

Yes, Jesus was tempted to be a homosexual. He was also tempted to be a drug addict. He was tempted to be a fornicator. He was tempted to commit sexual sins. He was tempted to be a robber, a thief, a murderer, a liar. He was tempted in all points like as we were, yet, He didn’t sin.

Hebrews 4:14-15 says…..

“Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.”

Paul said this in 2 Corinthians 5:21….

“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

Another translation says this…

“For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.”

Directly after the baptism of Jesus, the Holy Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil for 40 days. According to Biblical numerology, 40 is the number of testings and trials. During that time of testing, because Hebrews 4:15 says that Jesus was tempted in all points, this includes the sin of homosexuality.

So the beginning part of verse 15 is even more profound.

“For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses…”

Jesus is not out of touch with your weaknesses. He is not a High Priest who is aloft from what you have experienced or what you are going through. He knows intricately what you are dealing with. The pain of being tempted and falling into sin. He feels you. The pain of relapse after relapse. He feels you. The frustration of obeying the urges and impulses. The mind and the flesh dictating your every move where everything revolves around committing the same sin. He feels your pain.

However, it’s not enough to know that He knows what you are going through. He made every effort to free you from sin. It’s one thing to watch suffering. It’s one thing to know what I am going through but it is a entirely different thing to deliver me from what I am going through.

The rest of Hebrews 4, particularly, verse 16 is the answer.

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

What does obtaining mercy have to do with this? The throne of grace is where the Lord offers mercy. We know that when we sin, we need mercy. One person puts mercy like this.

Mercy prevents that which we rightfully deserve.

What do we rightfully deserve? Look at what Paul said in Romans 1…

“For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil- mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;

who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”

This word was given to the Jews and citizens of Rome about the sin of homosexuality. Homosexuality was rampant with all sorts of lewdness and revelry (see Romans 13:12-14). It is no wonder that Paul addressed the vile practices of their day. However, today, this sin is all over the world. The HIV/AIDS rate is through the roof. We all know that it’s a pandemic situation. So much so that the CDC is recommending home testing kits because the statistics show a major underreporting of who is infected.

While billions of dollars is being spent on research to find a cure for AIDS, as commendable it is, we still forget God on His throne of grace.

When we commit sin that is worthy of death, where can we go to obtain mercy? We must go to God. Yet, they won’t because the love of sin and darkness obscures the perfect remedy of all sin. The sacrificial offering of Christ’s body for the sins of the whole world. Yet, they will not come.

The fact that Jesus was tempted with SSA (same sex attraction) is a clear indication that Jesus knows what you are going through. It is a clear reminder that He also knows how to deliver and set free those that are bound. It is just a matter of your will to be delivered or to remain in sin. There are many that approached the Deliverer and had to make serious decisions. Those trapped in the sin of homosexuality walked away from their lovers or they told their lovers that they had to leave.

The fierce battle within to give up the lifestyle is probably the most powerful battles one has to face. For any person caught in Secret Sexual Sins, these battles are more fierce than most people think. The body has to shut down the urges and impulses. Go cold turkey. Experience withdrawal from the pressing desires that were once pleasurable to experience and fulfill. The agony of never having an orgasm in sexual immorality in accordance with your terms of fulfilling the lusts of the mind and flesh, is a feat that few followthrough on.

The subtraction and absence of sex at will. The connectedness experienced with others in the same sex world or in any department in the world of sexual immorality, never to be done any more to please the Lord. It’s a daunting task. The discipline to say “no” during the early stages in deliverance weakens but the strength of God comes right on time to help you suppress the will to sin. The escape made possible by the Holy Spirit, you accept time and time again. You realize that you are serious about walking away because the Holy Spirit reminds you of the temptations Jesus went through to overcome falling into the sin of homosexuality.

Yes, the lusts of the mind and flesh were real to Jesus. That’s why you can depend upon Him to lead all the way to complete victory over the sin of homosexuality, or any Secret Sexual Sins.

Hebrews 2:18 says…..

“For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.”

Hebrews 7:25 says…

“Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”

When you look at the word “intercession” some of us think that it is prayer all of the time. No. Not every time. Jesus literally comes to you and stands in your place. That’s how we are able to bear up under the temptation according to 1 Corinthians 10:13. Jesus stands in front of us when we are tempted to make sure that the enemy doesn’t tempt us beyond our ability to resist. That’s why He saves to the uttermost those that come to God through Him.

In those times of temptation, He saves us from falling, provided we walk away when He tells us to. Walk away to a safe place in Him from temptation.

He knows what you are going through. When you need His help. His aid. He will be there for you to help you overcome temptation.

Won’t you trust Him today?

LGBT-Straight: Hopelessness To Hope, Because Hope Doesn’t Disappoint

Despondent? Depressed? In Despair? Hopeless? Many of us caught in Secret Sexual Sins have endured the same emotions. Even to the point of contemplating suicide. We’ve been there. It’s not a good feeling. Scores of people have gone down this same path to be free. That’s what suicide is about. Looking to be free. But there is a better Way out to true and lasting freedom.

Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life….

Jesus is the Way to hope. There are many that are caught in the world of sexual immorality that are in over their heads in despair, passed by despondency, and is really struggling in depression. Many have committed suicide and may never find peace. The body may be laid to rest, but the soul that sins, it shall die. Death, not in the sense of closure, but death as far as separation from this life of shame and unbeknownst to many, it also is a separation from God forever.

You do not have to go out like that. In fact, you do not have to go out in suicide.

There is hope in Jesus!

The suicide wasn’t the sin that sends people into a Christ-less eternity. It’s the rejection of the salvation from sin provided on the cross of Jesus that was rejected. That’s the sin that will send people to hell. The sins committed is the unfruitful works of a sinful life.

The sins committed by anyone outside of Christ only underscores our need to be born again. To be born again in Jesus is our only sure hope of lasting freedom, healing, and emancipation from the power of darkness.

In Romans 6:23, Paul said, “The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

When a person works, they get paid wages.

But God offers a gift.

A free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

When you are working to sin, doesn’t it feel like hard labor?

Jesus did all the labor in carrying the sin nature of all humanity on the cross. If you could count every human that existed, He took upon Him every man and every sin man has ever committed.

His work on the cross was a labor of love that will never be matched.

All you have to do is receive the gift. You do not have to work for this because Jesus did all the work for you.

“…in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Many will say, that you are stressing me out even further.

Not a chance. We just want to let you know your options.

Sin brings death but God offers eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. There is nothing to be stressed out about when you have the option in this life to receive eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. He is the only Way out.

For so long you have believed a lie that in homosexuality, or sexual immorality, it’s going to be better. By holding onto that lie, you are only wasting precious time because Paul said this in Romans 5:4,

Now hope does not disappoint…

Listen to the lead in Scripture out of the Amplified Bible…

“And character [of this sort] produces [the habit of] joyful and confident hope of eternal salvation. Such hope never disappoints or deludes, or shames us…”

In the lifestyle of homosexuality or any sexually sinful relationships, there is no hope. The search for hope in illicit relationships always disappoints, deludes, and brings tremendous shame.

But in Jesus, there is hope. The hope that He offers never disappoints, deludes, or brings upon you any shame. He gives you hope, peace, love, freedom, and joy.

When I was caught in the sin of porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation, there was a place in these sinful sexual acts that I felt hopeless. Yes, I though that I was in Christ but it was all hypocrisy. I thought that by getting off, I would feel good. That’s all that matter to me.

Getting off.

And there is a point that after I obtained that sense of sexual satisfaction (orgasm) that this is the way it’s going to be for the rest of my life. The orgasmic satisfaction was short lived when the conviction of the conscience came. However, I was able to get past the conviction of the conscience because it was remorse. Remorse only means that you were sorry about getting caught.

At the end of remorse, distance would be placed from the point of conviction to just a few moments away from it, and the cycle of urges and impulses would rise in my mind and flesh. This was evident when I would purchase porn and gratify myself several times in one night.

I would say to myself, after I repented like a revolving door, ‘Here we go again.’

Hypocrites, like I was, have found a way to suppress the conviction to fulfill and satisfy the desires of the flesh and the mind. We would find a way to hold down the Word of God and the Holy Spirit from showing us a way out of the cycle of sin and death.

In the world of sexual immorality, and in particular homosexuality, many are told to not change what you are doing. That this is who you are and that you have to accept it and let it be. Many mock and ridicule God and the Bible by saying that it’s a sham.

It’s conversion therapy.

That Christ and the Bible that you preach about really doesn’t exist. That you are controlled by religious voodoo.

And in the same breath, some of these same people want to have a gay church, be married in a church (at least some of them), and be accepted by God.

The book of James, chapter 1 and verse 8, the Lord’s half brother, James, said, “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

Hopelessness is an awareness that you feel that you can never escape because the mind is fooled into thinking that this is the way you are. You were created this way, so accept it.

Nothing could be further from the truth because God never created you to sin against Him. That’s because sin is incompatible with His holy and righteous character.

For God to create you to commit homosexuality, adultery, fornication (porn), bisexuality, STDs, including HIV/AIDS, these diseases ought to be a blessing and not a consequential disease resulting from committing such acts.

This is a depraved and absurd statement but it’s equally absurd to even assume that homosexuality or sexual immorality gets better.

If it gets better, what are the “blessings” or “benefits?”

With all sexual sins, there is no blessings and benefits.

Such is the cycle of anyone in Secret Sexual Sins, but there is Someone named Jesus, that knows what you are going through. He was tempted in all points like us, yet He didn’t sin. That means that when Jesus was resurrected from the dead, He lives forever to show every man trapped in sin how to overcome temptation. Jesus knows how to discipline urges and impulses from rising up to rule you.

Jesus knows how to deliver you from obeying the desires of the flesh and the mind.

Hopelessness is the emotional and mental feeling that you are forever trapped.

If you are trapped like I was, “hope never disappoints.”

What does the sin of homosexuality and proponents of LGBT have to offer?

“It get’s better?”

How can sin get better?

What tends to happen is that there is a suppression of conviction and a forced happiness. The peace that they seek in homosexuality is non existent. Anytime you are angry, despondent, frustrated, upset, and constantly in search for something to ease the pain, it is clear that there is no peace.

True peace is found when you look to Jesus.

“And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace…”

Many homosexuals resort to name calling, cursing, and condemning those that preach freedom in Jesus, and those that come out of the lifestyle of sin. Those that found true love in Jesus and have escaped the grips of homosexual sin have all attested to the fact that they realize that what they’ve done was sin. That the lusts in their hearts was the driving force of sexual sins. That the delusional thinking was a position that they were willing to enforce in the pursuit of peace, happiness, and love.

Each day, this pursuit brings a false notion and they arrive at a dead end.

It’s the same with all sin.

It comes to an end when we realize that in none of these things is lasting freedom. All we know is that it takes us deeper into despair, despondency, depression, and hopelessness.

In sin, it’s not going to get better. It is going to get worse. No line is uncrossable. The staircase of finding satisfaction apart from Jesus only lead down to the pit, and it keeps going down until you arrive at the basement of death.

In the ill fated search, multiple relationships as well as bisexuality are sought. More drugs and alcohol. More sex with men, more porn (male and female), and more self gratification, commonly called masturbation. Because the mind has found a way to expand it’s pleasure capacity to assume that more would either drown the depression or take our minds off of the depression.

But it doesn’t.

The pursuit of more takes us to places where depression becomes a weight too heavy to bear. The constant conviction only reminds us that we have done wrong but pride and arrogance fights against anything that has to do with Jesus. The only One Who could free us. We rebel because we desire to look only at the pleasures of sin for the moment.

Then, when all is over, we are faced with a decision. To continue to accept who we are or get help. If that isn’t enough, the depression deepens and darkens our thinking. We arrive at the point that to end life would be a relief. Because hiding who you are or if you are out of the closet, you still feel rejected, a cast away, thrown aside as someone not worthy to be human.

Death becomes a welcomed sight.

But all of this is a lie. All along, the devil was trying to kill you.

In John 10:10, Jesus said,

“The thief (satan) comes not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

In hopelessness, you felt as if someone was trying to steal, kill, and destroy you. That’s what satan, through sexual immorality, is accomplishing every time you think about it.

It’s time for you to come to Jesus. The hope that He offers never disappoints, dilutes, or shames us. The life that Jesus offers brings love, peach, comfort, joy, rest, and life everlasting.

This hope is available when you are ready to walk away from hopelessness.

Many believe that a person cannot be delivered by saying a prayer. I believe the contrary. The sinner’s prayer is a starting point where the Holy Spirit comes in and changes your life. What makes this prayer powerful is when you give up the life of sin for a life of righteousness. In sincerity, the Holy Spirit acknowledges your desire to change and comes into your heart and changes your life in an instant.

To keep the change, so to speak, means you now must commit to living for Jesus every day. This is accomplished by finding an effective Christ centered, contextual Bible teaching church.

A place where you can be taught how to practically apply the Word of God to every day living.

A place where people are living what is taught and preached.

Find a place that has a powerful ex sexual immoral support group that deals with walking in the Word in righteousness and true holiness.

The Lord is your Shepherd and He has pastors, local churches, and caring people that can help you live a holy life, one moment at a time.

Just go to the Sexual Addiction Recovery page on my blog and there is a number of sites available that will assist you in getting the help you need.

Do not give up.

Do not despair.

There is hope in Jesus.

LGBT: The Occult & Wicca Witchcraft

As I was driving along, the Lord begin to minister something to me that I never would have thought of if I tried. When you are dealing with some form of sexual immorality, there is definite connections to idolatry. It’s a no brainer to know that when you are dealing with the dark side, the devil and his angels are there.

The OT is clear about idol worship. The Canaanite high places used for deity worship invariably had connections to sexual immorality. Male and female prostitutes were available all the time. On most sites, jars of babies killed as a ritual, lined the area. It’s quite possible that these babies were “out of womb” abortions resulting from pregnancies of female temple prostitutes.

In Acts chapter 15, “certain men came down from Judea and taught the brethren, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.”

The church at Antioch sent Paul and Barnabas down to Jerusalem to get the ruling on such doctrine. The council discussed and approved a letter that stated that they abstain from “things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality.”

There is no doubt about the connections of pagan rituals and sexual immorality.

When you are dealing with the occult, there is always a connection to witchcraft.

In the adjective, “occult” means, hidden and difficult to see,” hence mystery, mystic, secret.

According to Wikipedia, Dianic Wicca” and other sections of witches had lesbians incorporated into their circles.

“Dianic Wicca is a religion that welcomes lesbian pagans and celebrates their perspectives on feminism, sexism, and women’s empowerment within patriarchal culture. However, many Dianic covens exclude transgender people, being solely for womyn-born-womyn.”

In support of this philosophy, many Wiccans cite the Charge of the Goddess, which says “All acts of Love and Pleasure are My rituals”.Therefore all forms and expressions of sexuality, as long as they are otherwise healthy and consensual, are accepted.

According to Ann-Marie Gallagher, a professor of women’s studies and long-time author of many books related to Wicca, “there is no moralistic doctrine or dogma other than the advice offered in the Wiccan Rede… The only ‘law’ here is love… It matters not whether we are gay, straight, bisexual or transgendered – the physical world is sacred, and [we are] celebrating our physicality, sexuality, human nature and celebrating the goddess, Giver of ALL life and soul of ALL nature.”

In addition, since Wicca focuses on the importance of male-female polarities, its acceptance of homosexuals is focused on the view that homosexual individuals embody (spiritually) aspects of both polarities. A view similar to that of the Native American tradition of Two-Spirited individuals.”

As soon as I saw the word “Dianic,” it is a direct connection to Acts 19. Diana of the Ephesians. The revival that Paul and the other apostles conducted in Ephesus (modern day Turkey) literally wiped out Diana of the Ephesians. At that time, the city of Ephesus had a population of over 300,000 persons. The income of the coppersmiths were incredible. They were in business to make the statue of Diana and replicate it so that everyone could have a copy.

This is no different than the porn industry. Diana of the Ephesians was one of the Seven Wonders of the World. And to come to the place where this wonder could be obtained reveals a long trail of money, sex, and sorcery, witchcraft, and idol worship.

But as with all idols, there is always a long connection of idolatry that leads all the way to satan.

For instance, the Artemis is connected to Diana of the Ephesians.

According to New Unger’s Bible Dictionary,

“”Artemis of the Ephesians” (not a Greek deity, but Asiatic)’…was undoubtedly a representative of the same power presiding over conception and birth that was adored in Palestine under the name Ashtoreth.

The Ashtoreth was a god identified with the planet Venus and related with the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, the goddess of ‘sensual love, maternity, and fertility.’

However, according to the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, “In the West, however, Asherah and Ashtoreth came to be distinguished from one another, Asherah being exclusively the goddess of fertility, whereas Ashtoreth passed into a moon-goddess.”

The Ashtoreth was made of wood and in some cases made into a pole. While it is a stretch, I wouldn’t be surprised if they had pole dancers back then.

If that isn’t enough, the Asherah was “a cult object of wood, which might be worshipped or cut down and burned and which was certainly the goddess image.” Some scholars noted that the term “detestable” would be used to describe the idol. Also, some scholars have even used the term “phallic.”

In case you do not know what phallic” is.

It is an erect penis.

In other words, the idolatry was about sexual perversion worship to false gods and one of many objects of worship might have been an erect penis.

Notice 2 Kings 23:4-7,

“And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, the priests of the second order, and the doorkeepers, to bring out of the temple of the Lord all the articles that were made for Baal, for Asherah, and for all the host of heaven; and he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. Then he removed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense on the high places in the cities of Judah and in the places all around Jerusalem, and those who burned incense to Baal, to the sun, to the moon, to the constellations, and to all the host of heaven. And he brought out the wooden image from the house of the Lord, to the Brook Kidron outside Jerusalem, burned it at the Brook Kidron and ground it to ashes, and threw its ashes on the graves of the common people. Then he tore down the ritual booths of the perverted persons that were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the wooden image.”

There is little imagination to the possibility of what kind of sex toys” were employed.

So the connections to abortion, idol worship, sexual symbols, and the occult or witchcraft is there.

Back in the book of Acts chapter 19, the other thing that was interesting was that one day, the people that turned their lives over to the Lord came out and burned their books of sorcery. The book in themselves wasn’t the value. It was what was in the books that contained the value. The ability to use supernatural demonic power over people.

We all know that the LGBT community is a small community or minority of people, however, they have vast resources that reaches all the way into the White House, but that is not the real pinnacle of power. The House and the Senate, and the Judicial Branches are the real houses of power in the natural.

On almost every level of government. City, State, and Federal, their reach is incredible. And that’s where the battle ground has shifted. From the Federal level to city and state levels. In fact, then Vice President Dick Chaney signaled to LGBT that if you want these rights, go to the states and we are seeing a full court press of the LGBT agenda pushing states to incorporate homosexuality.

The new target, which is an old target is the church. For years, they have infiltrated church music without much opposition. They have now been accepted and ordained in most churches where there’s been a relinquishing of Biblical holiness on an unimaginable scale.

Slowly, we are seeing some segments of church wane or entirely avoid the fight of battle. Former homosexuals and lesbians are also targeted by LGBT as conversion therapy Christians. The new birth is not a system of therapy. The new birth is accepting the life of Jesus and throwing away the life of sin by the grace of God.

The tactics of LGBT is almost to the point that the church feels vexed and tormented like Lot but this is not the time for the church to capitulate because of the anger of the devil in the voices of those that stand hard against God and His Word. This is the time to pray like never before and stand firm in the faith. We are not to fear their faces because our God is a Mighty God.

The only impediment left is the true Word of God and the Person of the Holy Spirit, operating within the believers in the true church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

They know that they cannot silence the church because God is always raising up someone to speak truth. However, when LGBT cannot have their way, they resort to intimidating witchcraft and manipulative tactics.

Not all lesbians are deep into Dianic Wicca Witchcraft but their voices and tactics have the spirit of witchcraft in almost everything that they do because of it’s demonic connections to sexual immorality and idolatry. You do not have to have a statue to bow down to because the hour we are in now has revealed the sinner’s true idol.

Him or herself in anarchy and rebellion against the will of God.

Of course there will be strong denial of these connections but rebellion is the heart of all sin.

I remember so vividly when I was caught in the sin of porn and self gratification how I was. After you come out of the dark and begin to see what you were involved with, you can see that you were in rebellion.

In 1 Samuel 15:22b-23, look at what Samuel said of Saul,

“Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.”

When the gospel of inclusion came out, it was because the church made a stand in righteousness to exclude sin. God is exclusive. To be holy is to be exclusive. To be included into the kingdom of the Son of His love, you must have sin washed away by the blood of the Lamb.

A spell is cast every time sin is committed because rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.

It is only by being delivered from the power of darkness by the forgiveness of sins and a thorough washing of the blood of the Lamb that a persons is transformed and conveyed into the kingdom of the Son of His love. As many as received Him to them He gives power or the right to become a son of God.

These verses are a combination of Colossians 1:13 and John 1:12.

You cannot become a son of God without being born again.

There is no such thing as backdoor Christianity where you attempt to come in without a “wedding garment” (see Matthew 22:1-14).

We know that this is an apostate age and many will turn from the Lord. Already there is a clear infiltration and deep insurgency within the ranks of the righteous. However, remember that the Lord said “….and the gates of hell shall not prevail…”

The gates, according to Vine’s Expository of Biblical Words states that the gates of hell is representative of demonic government. satan’s government shall not prevail.

When you are in Secret Sexual Sins, you are in rebellion. And it is no different than the sin of witchcraft. My stubbornness. It was no different than iniquity and idolatry.

The word “witchcraft” is the Hebrew word, “qecem” which means divination. This word is associated with Balaam. We all know what happened to the children of Israel when they were in the plains of MOAB.

So, when you go to church, if there is no true conviction of sin, there is no doubt about Secret Sexual Sins. When you go to your “church concerts” and “album recordings” and you begin to see certain things that stand out as out of the holy ordinary of the presence of God, there is a greater chance that immorality is comfortable in the facility.

The church should never mind sinners coming into a worship service but it should be very uncomfortable for sin to find a home. Our worship services should never be as comfortable as a roach surviving a roach bomb. Where there is no conviction for sin, it is a good indication that the Holy Spirit may not be at home in the facility that houses the church.

Conviction is not for the purpose of chasing sinners out of the house of God. Conviction serves as a notice that in the place where the church stands is holy ground. The convicting power of God is not for the purpose of chasing the sinner out but to pull that person to the blood of His cross where sins are forgiven and where resurrection to new life in Christ is issued. The place of conviction must be where the love of God is administered in truth and where, as a result of such conviction, a person is sorry for hurting God.

They repent, receive the life changing power of the Holy Spirit, and walk in new freedom in Christ. From the house of bondage to the kingdom of the Son of His love.

When it comes to self gratification, I was idolizing sex.

In all actuality, whatever your preference may be to get off, it all boils down to sexual immorality which is rebellion and iniquity which is witchcraft and idolatry.

The two terms are interchangeable.

For those of us that received deliverance, when we are attacked by those still in the house of bondage, when they spew their venom, you get that sense that something demonic took place. That demonic occurrence is the occult or witchcraft spell that is being cast against the children of righteousness but…

“No weapon formed against us shall prosper and whatever tongue that rises against us in judgment, we shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of Me, says the Lord.”

LGBT: The May 8th North Carolina Vote – Sexual Discrimination?

As you all know, North Carolina, on May 8, will be voting regarding the determination that marriage is between one male and one female. Elder Raymond King of Securing Hope Ministries emailed a link to me regarding this vote. I will add that there is a broad campaign to misinform the Body of Christ in NC.

GMCWatch also endorsed the stand for NC to vote for the fact that marriage is between one male and one female.

It is stressed again that homosexuality is sin. Sin is the foundation as to why gay marriage is wrong and ultimately against the will of God.

This must be looked upon as a full court press attempt by LGBT and other gay organizations to manifest sin in the United States and around the world.

It is a clear and present danger of epic proportions. And yes, it is a global threat.

There is also a broad campaign to silence African Americans that happened to know the truth about the issue so that LGBT agendas can flourish without objection.

However, when the will of God is before the people, it is important to stress that regardless of the devil’s terror, misinformation, and intimidation tactics, the people of God must stand.

“And having done all to stand, stand therefore….”

In the churches, African American pastors in particular, are picking up the pace in informing the congregations of the importance of voting.

The president weighed in and said that the amendment is “discriminatory.”

He has a right to disagree but we all know that according to the Word of God, the president is wrong.

Proverbs 14:34 says, “Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach (wicked thing, or shame) to any people.”

Based on this Word from God, Mr. President, your “discriminatory” comment is dead wrong on arrival.

In my opinion, as an African American, he should know better.

Better yet, the president, as a professed Christian, which is very suspect and highly questionable, the president still should know better. You can’t be a child of God and be against God and His Word at the same time. You cannot be for sin and against God at the same time.

Believers of Jesus Christ should have known better after then Senator Barack Obama made unambiguous speeches to keep Planned Parenthood (Abortionhood) around and to champion homosexual and lesbian issues on an unprecedented scale.

It should have been a clear signal that sin was to be further entrenched. As you all should know, sexual immorality is at the root of abortions and homosexuality, and lesbianism.

African Americans that voted for the president, you should have known better.

You must be for God and against all sin at all times.

Disagree, cry, fuss.

But sin is sin, and righteousness is righteousness. Right is right and wrong is wrong. But light is light and darkness is darkness. You will never find God and the devil sitting on the same throne at the same time, or playing musical chairs. God remains King of kings and Lord of lords. God remains in the heaven and devil is destined for hell.

What is also heartening is there is a growing trend that the regular voting along Democratic lines in the past is starting to dissipate. In the past, it was a regular thing for Blacks to vote against the Word of God in issues that matter the most.

As a result, we’ve been voting for our own demise.

The time has come where we look to the Word of God and determine that the way we vote must be consistent with what God said in His Word. Regardless of the intimidation tactics. It appears that for so long, African Americans, having now the right to vote, have basically been told, to shut up and vote without looking deeper into how such voting would drastically affect African Americans in the future.

The time is now for the true believers in Christ in NC to vote in such a way that the will of God is honored. The end of traditionally voting to appease Blacks in the democratic offices has now come to a close. There is a way for African Americans to vote and remain the watch dog over true Civil Rights without allowing outside influences such as LGBT and other gay organizations to further entrench themselves deceptively behind the true cause of freedom for Blacks in America while keeping us seated at the back of the bus.

Please do not misunderstand me. We are not supposed to remain at the back of the bus.

I will add that it doesn’t mean voting Republican or Independent either. Any candidate that is not consistent with the Word of God should not get a vote. Some dare to say that if you do not vote, then the opposition wins. But what about when a candidate blatantly agrees with all sin.

I believe that the Spirit of God will inform you as to what you are to do but do not be found voting in agreement with sin. What if a candidate is “close enough?” Again, ask the Holy Spirit and He will guide you as to what you are to do. Remember, the Holy Spirit will never lead a child of God away from the will of God (see Romans 8:26-27).

The “down the road” ramifications may be too much for us to bear.

The blatant hijacking of Civil Rights must be aggressively stood against by the Word of God.

And it’s not about pulling up the past and conjuring the voices of the past.

African Americans, your ancestors have stood their watch. We must stand the watch in our time, but this time, with the will of God in mind. You can’t go wrong when you please God because God is pleased to come and walk with us who are undefiled according to Psalm 119:1-8.

It’s not about what we think. It is about what God said and agreeing with what God said that is very unpopular. But this is not a popularity contest.

No people, no nation has ever gone wrong trusting in the Lord.

The conviction must be based on the truth of the Word of God. Not based on what you feel. Because when God issues a command, He didn’t ask any of us how we felt about it.

We are told to obey.

We must live according to the convictions of the Scriptures and be found remaining true to the One who died for us, for our sins, and truly set us free.

I’m not a North Carolinian, but I am a born again believer in Christ and I am an African American. I stand with my brothers and sisters in Christ in prayer that God’s Word will prevail mightily and that the will of God be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Please read the excerpts blow and be encouraged.

“The amendment would not change the law – same-sex marriage is already not legal in this state,” the Rev. Sheldon Shipman said he told the 800 members of Greenville Memorial A.M.E Zion Church last week. “So it becomes a civil rights issue, sanctioning discrimination and making it part of the constitution.”

Yet, most of the state’s African-Americans appear ready to rely on the Bible as their voting guide. They cite Genesis and the Gospels as defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman, and quote from Leviticus in the Old Testament and Paul in the New, which call same-gender sex abominable, perverse and shameful.

As such, the marriage amendment has hammered a wedge between two enduring traits of African-American believers – a tradition of political and social activism, and a streak of moral conservatism, especially when it comes to gays and lesbians.

“That’s the quandary: They can’t see that they will be voting against someone’s ability to live their own life,” says Tracy Godfrey of Charlotte, a gay black man raised in a conservative Baptist church who joined Caldwell Memorial Presbyterian a year ago.

“… On a faith level, they will vote against the very thing they’ve been taught in church, ‘that whatever you did to the least of these, you did for me.’ ”

Amendment opponents call the referendum a waste of time and money, given the existing state law against same-sex marriage. They say the wording threatens the legal status and benefits of all unmarried couples, including heterosexuals, and writes discrimination into the constitution.

Based on his sermon, Davis buys none of it. “You’ve heard the talk. As African-Americans, we ought to know that this is discrimination. Discrimination? Black people have been discriminated against because of the color of our skin, not by our behavior or a choice of lifestyle.”

“I was born like this!” Davis shouted while he pointed at his bare hand, “amen ” and “preach-it” rising up from the congregation. “I need you to understand that you and I must stand for what God says!”
