This is nothing new.
It is a continued trend of defiance against God and His Holy Word by people that claim to be ministers.
Rest assured. They are not ministers of Jesus Christ. They are not even followers of Christ.
Who are they?
Sinning rebels bent on loving and practicing the vile sin of homosexuality and using that which is sacred to legitimize homosexuals.
Lipstick on a pig still makes it a pig.
Homosexuals performing homosexual marriages still makes them practitioners of the vile sin of homosexuality.
The blatant disregard of the sacredness of marriage between one man and one woman is a pandemic.
All around the world, people are abandoning God. People that claim to know God were masquerading all that time. They weren’t serious about God. They were struggling with the lusts of their flesh and mind. Justifying their sin. They have given themselves over to their lusts to be under its control.
To them, if they were in Christ, they have self determined that it is easier to give in to their sin(s) than to fight each urge and impulse in prayer and fasting, carefully obeying the Holy Spirit to take that way of escape so they may be able to bear the temptation.
The pleasures of this life overwhelmed them.
I believe that the media has a lot to do with feeding their desires of the flesh and mind.
Consumed with these fleshly desires, they give themselves over to fulfill their vile appetite. Desiring to fulfill their sexual fantasy to secure a false sense of intimacy, they’ve shunned all discipline. They return to the house of worship. Not to worship God but to settle the account of remorse that doesn’t lead to repentance.
As I have said previously, God was not caught by surprise.
Wickedness is abounding, but as Paul said by the Holy Spirit in Romans 5:20b,
“…but where sin abounded, grace abounded much more.”
In other words, the pace of sin will never outpace grace.
Sin is powerless to overcome grace.
Even though man persists in spreading sin all over the world, the Lord promised in His Word that sin will never go beyond His grace. Which means that God’s delivering power will always be more than enough no matter how far and to what great lengths sinfully vile man takes it.
John Knox was a Scottish preacher in the Scotland during the Protestant Reformation in the 1500’s.
The queen of Scotland was quoted as saying that she feared the prayers of John Knox than all the armies.
Prayer from a man equivalent to Elijah would strike fear in anyone’s heart.
Needless to say, that on the isle of Scotland, much prayer is needed. Much prayer is needed every where because it’s not the fear of a praying man or woman alone. It is the God that responds to our inability to produce results praying that is to be feared above all else.
Until this kind of praying is done where God could do exceedingly abundantly above all that we could ask or think, according to the power that work within us, the vile sin of homosexuality will abound, but thank God “…where sin abounded, grace does much more abound.”
The story regarding the Church of Scotland could be read here.
In a stunning presentation, two false teachers are now taking it upon themselves to tell the whole world that God was all wrong about hell. Especially homosexuals going to hell.
Let’s be clear that articulated in the Bible and by the Lord using Pastor DL Foster’s blog, that classification of sin is not what will take you to hell. Classification of your spiritual nature does. There are two classifications. Righteous and Unrighteous. You can only be made right by accepting the provision of salvation through Jesus Christ. It is by grace are you saved, through faith…salvation is a gift, called grace or unmerited favor given freely by God, and made possible by, and at the expense of Jesus’ life, death, burial, and resurrection, (see Ephesians 2:8-9.)
At this point, there are two spiritual parents. The Heavenly Father and the father of lies called the devil (see John 8:44).
But here is how you can guarantee yourself a one way ticket to hell. Defy the Word of God. Defy the God of salvation. Refuse to accept the provision of salvation of Jesus Christ. And to deceive others that God was not serious about hell is contempt of God and His word. Deceiving others into continuing in sin that grace may abound (see Romans 6:1) is disheartening but expected for the times.
Never mind what God said in His Word.
What I believe takes precedence over what the Word says is what these two false teachers erroneously purport.
I VEHEMENTLY REBUKE THEM AND THEIR STATEMENTS, AND I COMMAND THEM TO REPENT, IN JESUS’ NAME!
These and other false preachers are leading the way to a place where its destruction are never satisfied (see Proverbs 27:20).
The Lord used Pastor DL Foster to put out a blog in 2010 to warn us of the transition of preachers from the truth of the gospel to lies. When you begin to see once powerful men and women of God depart from the truth of the Word, and believers gullibly suck in their perversion, it is an indication, a sign to you, that you need to depart from them NOW!
But first, I want to share two things.
The blog from GCMWatch which powerfully sounds the alarm. http://www.gcmwatch.com/4718/george-bloomer-jet-heaven-and-homosexuals
A follow up blog may be coming. Should it become available, and there is no doubt about it, we will post the link to GCMWatch on this blog.
Our goal is to fully inform the Body of Christ that false prophets for profits are among the sheep and sadly, many will not depart. Many will end up in the place where these false prophets will end up.
Here is the YouTube show with Cindy Trimm and George Bloomer.
Pastor DL Foster posted this link on FB and we are outraged!
Take a look at this madness and then come back to finish reading this blog.
Cindy Trimm and George Bloomer, THOU ART MAD!!!!!
IF YOU ARE NOT OUTRAGED, you are poisoned with their poison. You are sick and you are about to die. If you haven’t died already.
If you knew what you were eating, people today wouldn’t care.
If it tastes good, why should I know?
But anything that tastes good, is not a good thing when after the taste, your body rejects it by way of vomiting.
Vomiting is a violent reaction to save the body from further catastrophe.
When the body doesn’t agree with what tasted good, the body knows better. To avoid sickness, it violently reverses the process.
Your tastes buds may have been fooled but your brain knows when something is going to put your body down. And the body reverses the decision of “taste” to save itself from sickness. The sickness of vomiting saves the body from death. Sometimes, this process is too late. Once inside, the body may or may not acclimate. Or the disease embedded in the food is too powerful to reverse and severe sickness may lead to death.
Sadly, many in the body of Christ will not reverse the process and die of spiritual food poisoning. Or they may suffer such severe poisoning that any attempt to reason with them to take the medicine of the Word will be rebuffed. Sometimes, you cannot talk people out of mass suicide. Much less, you can’t talk high profile preachers and leaders out of altering their perilous course that is leading many along to the place of destruction.
The poison in them is extremely toxic.
And any preacher that does not get delivered from it, they will follow them.
It is sad.
You watch many preachers follow them and do or desire to do the same thing they are doing. They want to be famous just like them and they look to be on TV, speak before great crowds. Sleep in the fanciest hotels. Earn money they never seen before. And the world will give them everything they want. Including prostitutes, drugs, alcohol, and anything they desire.
So long as they lie and preach anything other than repentance and the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
Away from me with these things.
The preachers today are feeding the church lies from the devil. It tastes so good. Yet, the body refuses to reverse the process. And even if it did, like dogs, believers will turn back to their vomit and say, this tastes better than the first time and lap up everything that came out.
Paul said, “Come Out From Among Them And Be Separate, says the Lord.”
This is a series we are doing at Prevailing Word Ministries.
First, Paul warned of this when he asked for the elders at Ephesus to come to Miletus for a “Leadership Conference.”
In Acts 20, Paul warned them that….
“For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.”
As a note, most leadership conferences that you may be attending are off message. They do not talk about the BIG SIGN ON THE FREE WAY.
THE DAYS OF NOAH AND LOT.
The high profile preachers are driving the church away from the truth of the Word of God and have established themselves as the voice of “reason.” With such crafty deception and hypocrisy (see Ephesians 4:14), many are following their slick sick words to the pit of hell.
Many believers are sitting there in their services and they are not saying one word because they do not know the God of the Bible, much less the Bible. They are so emotionally attached and spiritually detached from God that it will take real concerted prayer to jar them from the gummy death grip of a toothless enemy.
They are so emotionally gullible that they cannot discern good from evil (Hebrews 5:12-14).
First, sinners will go to hell. Read Matthew 12:4. They greatly err when they said that the Lord will not cast them into hell. Read that verse again. When a person refuses to refute Scripture with Scripture, it’s because Scripture never refutes Scripture. That’s the whole purpose of the Word. To tell you what God said. They never opened their Bible. They became whatever Bible they wanted to become.
And even if they did open the Bible, their uncorroborated interpretation will violate the rules of Biblical Hermeneutics. And that’s how people open themselves up to such deception. They accept the devil’s suggestion…..“Yea, hath God said?”
And so the question comes into your mind to question God and question what God said.
The very same thing that the devil used against Adam and Eve that started the mess we are in today. And when people say that the Bible didn’t say that, you better show me in the Bible because if you do not come correct, you better prepare for a return salvo.
I will blow your spot up.
Acts 17:11 was put there for a reason. They better thank God that I or any of my FB colleagues were not in that audience. Somebody that had the Word didn’t not cry out. Their presence endorsed and affirmed their lies. That is called “guilt by association” or “association by default.”
This is the time that we cannot be timid according to Revelation 21:8. The cowards of our times are before the people. They do not stand when they need to stand on the Word. As a result, very few will sound the alarm and be outraged. Instead they will be cowards. And cowards will be sent to the lake which burns with fire and brimstone. The same substance that was used when God poured His wrath from heaven down on those that persisted in vile passions and utter perversion.
Note Matthew 7:21-23….
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
The sin of homosexuality is in a class of sin by itself. It is the highest form of perversion. The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, as Pastor DL Foster pointed out in one of his blogs (paraphrasing) is the highest measure of dissatisfaction and vehement attitude against this vile passion. The destruction of the raining down from heaven on those that practiced the sin of homosexuality should be a disturbing wake up call not to sin this sin.
For Cindy Trimm and George Bloomer, professing to be wise they became fools (morons see Romans 1:22 and the base Greek word for “fools”), to say or even suggest a deflection by pointing out the sin of fornication, is folly of the highest order. The rule of hermeneutics is violated because they failed to study the part in light of the whole context of the counsel of God.
By using eloquence and stature, they deceive the people that are gullible to their poison.
If what they are saying does not reflect the presence of the HOLY GOD, you need to make a decision and COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE SEPARATE SAYS THE LORD!
Why? Why are they doing this? This leads me to believe that when you are advocating a change in the approach of God in the Scriptures, Secret Sexual Sins is in the mix.
If God can appear to excuse the highest form of Sexual Sins, then when I commit Sexual Sins, it’s not a sin at all. It is to be excused because they believe that the sin of homosexuality is not a sin at all.
So this gives me permission to act out.
And evidence of this is when they said that homosexual musicians and singers brings us into the presence of the Lord unlike any other group of people.
They are so anointed.
Well, the once but no more “anointed cherub” (see Ezekiel 28:11-17) is where they get their anointing and we end up, by listening to their songs, just as “anointed” to sin the sins they are trapped in.
Get rid of those songs and COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE SEPARATE SAYS THE LORD.
If they are connected to homosexuality and never denounce their sins and the sin of homosexuality, you are listening to the songs of demons, AND IT IS PART OF THE DOCTRINE OF DEVILS AND SEDUCING SPIRITS (see 1 Timothy 4:1), and you are not worshipping God (see Amos 5:23-24). You are worshipping the god of this world, which is exactly what the devil was seeking for on day one of his despicable rebellion.
Some of you think that you are worshipping God but worship is prayer and if you harbor sin while you are praying, your worship is not accepted (see Psalm 66:18 and John 4:24).
Second, 1 Corinthians 6:9, “Be not deceived,” they will not inherit the kingdom of God or the kingdom of heaven. Do not let them fool you into thinking that by differentiating between the two (the kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of God) that homosexuals or any sinning person will get in.
Third, they attempted to use humanism to justify sinful behavior.
The old lie of “God created me this way.”
God created you “male and female.”
When you wake up in the morning, before you take a bath, look at you naked. Your equipment tells you the gender God created you with. He’s given you enough sense to tell you that certain parts fit. And the anatomy of man is not for males. And the anatomy of the female is not for another female. Certain parts do not fit (see Romans 1:26-27).
Within the “one flesh” principle, marriage is between one male and one female according to Genesis 2:24. The devil, through the murderous act and fall of disobedience by Adam and Eve, perverted sex. Yet, even in man’s perversion, we have enough sense to realize that the only safe sex is between one male and one female in holy matrimony. Unsafe sex is adultery, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, and bisexuality. Never mind condoms.
And God didn’t change, nor did He change His mind, as some people that are so perverted want you to believe (see Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 6:13-18, and James 1:17).
The only way to protect yourself is to obey the Word of God.
Your deliberate, intentional disobedience, a direct defiance of God, will be judged.
There is no way around this because your death is proof of what is to come (see Hebrews 9:27).
Now, James 3:1 stands against them and James 4:4 stands against them. And when you are found in agreement with the world, you are an enemy of God. In this age of apostasy, it is clear that when you depart from the truth, you have departed from the Word.
After looking and reading the evidence, Cindy Trimm and George Bloomer are in grave error and they are leading many along with them to the death march of hell.
It is indicative of the fact that if you follow them in their folly, you are certain to be judged with them accordingly.
Weddings is not about the groom. It’s all about the Bride. What is the bride wearing? She looks beautiful. No one really pays that much attention to the groom except when the vows are exchanged when he pledges his loyalty, faithfulness or fidelity, honor, commitment, and most of all, his love to his bride.
One of the most misunderstood and less read books of the Bible is the Song of Solomon.
When the scholars were compiling canon Scripture, some of them had a difficult time with understanding the purpose of the book because of it’s somewhat detailed exposure of a man’s true love for a woman.
Even now, people rarely read it because you do not expect to blush from reading about a story of true love, fidelity, and sensual desire, and discussions of sexual body parts in the Bible.
Not in the Bible?
The scholars (44 of them) saw that the same connotations were similar to the way the Lord loves His church. But it underscores the fact that God created male and female to be married and enjoy sex in an unadulterated, undefiled way, absent of perversion that becomes an abomination to God.
Genesis 2:25 says that both Adam and Eve were naked and they were not ashamed.
It was only when sin came about that shame was introduced. So much so that the exposure of their bodies demanded that they cover up, hence, the reason why we wear clothes to this very day.
When the difference between right a wrong is fully realized, that’s when the decisions we make will take us down paths of righteousness or unrighteousness.
Thank God that the Lord, in the Song of Solomon emphatically underscored His original intent of courtship, love, marriage, and “straight” sex by placing the Song of Solomon in the Bible. You will never see a book in the Bible as vivid about courtship, discipline in courtship, strength and beauty, love and marriage.
That’s where porn and erotica novels come up short.
Porn and erotic novels misunderstand true love.
Don’t misunderstand me because there are some (very few) writers that capture the true essence of romance but to place it in porn and erotica, the world is not that interested. The sex act is more interesting according to the world.
For the billions of men (in 24 hours, 2.1 billion) that do watch porn, they hate the story lines. I know because when I was trapped in the sin of porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation, I cared less about the story line.
Just get to the sex.
Women want to be involved in the things that lead to the sex for connection purposes. The sex is engaging but not as intriguing as the communication that leads to connection, that leads to sex. In some cases, most women (1 in 6 women) that do watch porn agree that the story lines are very corny.
I am not condoning porn.
I’ve been free of that sin since November 2008 and I’m not going back because of the “Seamless Fabric” connections to human trafficking, organized and disorganized crime, drugs, kidnapping, adult rape, child rape and molestation, the final frontier-child porn (over 100,000 child porn sites and rising), sinful threesomes, that include lesbianism and homosexuality, etc.
The Song of Solomon is a book suited for women but men could learn the etiquette of relationships, communication, dating, courtship, discipline, and love that must remain the center piece of a marital relationship after a couple becomes husband and wife.
And you will never see adultery, fornication, bisexuality, homosexuals and lesbians engaged in perverted sex in Song of Solomon either.
Solomon loved many women and it became the epitaph of his reign as the 3rd king of Israel.
In the end, Solomon failed God miserably but God still used Solomon’s poetic wisdom (like his father, in psalmist fashion) to let man know that your natural instincts is to admire, correctly court, and marry a woman, not a man. At the same time, we see the woman’s natural instinctive desire for a real man. These are natural instincts placed in male and female by God.
The fall into sin opened the door for these instincts to be perverted.
Never will you see in the Song of Solomon such perversion that leads to abomination.
With this being said. In part two, I used a Scripture in Ephesians 5:26-27 that depicts the current state of the church.
Paul begins to describe the comparison between the relationship between the husband and wife as that of Christ and the church. Then in verse 26, Paul goes spiritual. The Lord is the Head of the church and He loves the church that He shed His sinless blood for.
Notice what Jesus does. He sanctifies and cleanses her (the church), how? “…with the washing of water by the word.”
If the church wasn’t dirty, there would be no need for washing.
There is no question that the current condition of the church is filthy.
As a note, do not let the word “might” throw you off.
In the Greek, “sanctify” is the word you want to concentrate on.
You best to believe that He will sanctify and cleanse His church. However, people in the church must want to be sanctified and cleansed. For this to happen, a believer must come to the place to receive the cleansing power found only in the correct application of the Word of God.
If a believer doesn’t want to be cleansed then they remain dirty. And we all know that stained garments are not allowed in heaven. Sin stains the garment. To get the stain out, you need the cleansing power of the Word of God.
Here’s how it’s done. Notice these Scriptures.
Psalm 119:9-11 says,
“How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.”
2 Corinthians 7:1 says,
“Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
2 Timothy 2:19-22 says,
“Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”
1 John 1:9 says,
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
(UNDERLINE ARE MINE)
The other cleansing “agent,” if you will, is the blood of Jesus.
Hebrews 9:14 says,
“…how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?“
So if you are not cleansed, you cannot serve the living God.
The key to true cleansing is that after you have been cleansed, you no longer have a need for sin.
This is accomplished in Proverbs 28:13 that says,
“He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.”
You may be confessing that you’ve sinned, but when you sin again, you haven’t walked away from sin forever. You see, confessing sin is not for the purpose of returning to sin again. Confessing that you’ve sinned is the first step. The next step is to walk away from that sin forever.
True cleansing is evidenced in the fact that you no longer are held under the power of sin. Jesus freed us from the authority of the law of sin and death. We no longer are under the authority of sin and death because that law was superseded by the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus (see Romans 8:1-2).
So when we are in Christ we now have power to walk away from that which no longer has power over our lives.
The Hebrew Word for “forsake” is “azab” and it means to “…loosen- relinquish.
Brown’s Driver-Brigg’s Hebrew Lexicon says, “to depart, leave behind, to let alone, abandon.”
That’s the true essence of sanctification and cleansing; “to depart, leave behind, to let alone, abandon” sin.
So the “washing of water by the word” is the preparation necessary so Jesus could come again and receive us to Himself (see John 14:1-3) and to “present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.”
Now fast forward to the book of Revelation chapter 21.
John, the apostle of the Lamb saw, by the Spirit of God, the holy city called New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, “…prepared as a bride adorn for her husband…”
Go further down into verse 9 and you will find these words…
“Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”
As a note, the harmony of the Scriptures is powerful.
Take the time to compare Revelation 22:12-13 and Ezekiel 48:30-35.
When the wicked are judged and are cast into the lake of fire, the wedding ceremony will take place.
These powerful symbols in the 21 chapter of the book of Revelation indicates that only the true Bride of Christ will participate in the ceremony.
The goal of perversion and abomination is to attempt to undo or at the very least pervert God’s symbol of marriage because marriage represents the final act of God bringing the church to Himself.
Many homosexuals and lesbians think that this is not the case and that this doesn’t amount to anything. That all they want is just to be left alone to be married and be recognized as a legitimate “couple.”
But little do they realize that devil is using their preference for the sin of homosexuality and lesbianism to drag them to the pit of eternal separation from the presence of the Lord after they die.
What difference does it make?
It makes a big difference when you have to spend eternity away from God.
This gay marriage thing is more than just manifesting perversion on the earth.
It is an attempt to pervert the church so that it never becomes what God destined it to be.
A clean, holy, righteous church.
No earthly bride will wear a soiled gown. All brides look to be decked out.
Clean, Pure, White.
The true church must be so.
That’s why the devil fights the church so much. That’s why gay rights proponents fight so much because in sin there can be no purity. They are trying so desperately to clean sin up so that they look like the Bride of Christ but they can’t unless they are cleansed from sin by the blood of the Lamb.
They cannot enter into heaven to bum-rush heaven. Knowing that they can’t, they are trying to bogart marriage, hijack marriage, take marriage from the church because they want to legitimize homosexual sin. They want to be a part of the party. They want to be accepted. They want a seat at the table with a soiled gown.
And LGBTQ and all sympathetic people involved in the sin of adultery, fornication (porn), bisexuality, homosexuality, and lesbianism will never be cleansed on it’s own unless they Come Clean by coming out of that which God declared as an abomination.
They must be born again according to John 3:3. Otherwise, Jesus will declare to them that He never knew them (see Matthew 7:21-25).
Revelation 21:8 says,
“But the cowardly, unbeliever, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death,”
Unless they forsake homosexuality and lesbianism which is perversion that leads to abomination.
That’s why homosexuals and lesbians want marriage rights.
It is their own sinful version of the bride.
Here comes the soiled bride, not dressed in white.
Except that there is no husband to accept a bride soiled, unclean, and looking disheveled in sin.
Homosexuals and lesbians want to have sin while dressed in white.
When people willfully remain in opposition to the will of God and the truth is told, they feel hated, rejected, and feel worthless and hopeless but it doesn’t have to be this way. By your own choice, you’ve accepted sin, but by your choice, before you die, you can choose life in Christ.
You can choose freedom, and deliverance. God is not mad at you. God is not angry at you. God is angry that you have accepted the lie as the truth and He is doing everything in His power to help you understand the truth. If you love sin and try to bring sin in, it cannot happen.
That’s where you will either part ways or give up the life of sin.
It’s all up to you.
Therefore, marriage between one man and one woman is a symbol of Christ and the church, and Scripturally represents the Bride of Christ’s triumphant moment where the Lamb comes and receives her.
From Genesis 2:21-25 to Ephesians 5:25-33 to Revelation 21.
Several decades ago, the late James Cleveland, a practicing homosexual, sang a song called “Only A Look.” Years ago, as a young child, my late mother would play his albums or listen to his songs on WWRL in New York every Sunday Morning.
Part of the refrain of that song was, “Just one look, would turn you away from sin.”
Sadly, this powerful song never rang true in his heart. Some would dare to say that I shouldn’t judge a dead man. The way the Bible teaches is that either we are dead in trespasses and sins or we are dead to sin but alive unto God (see Romans chapter 6).
The Bible is clear about hypocrisy.
Living a hypocritical life while claiming to be walking in the light of the gospel is the worst kind of hypocrisy. Such was my life until I repented and left the sin of porn and self gratification, commonly called masturbation behind me forever.
LGBT false pastors and pretend churches that are popping up all over the place serve as a reminder that if you are going to talk about God, the Bible, and church, you cannot claim to be looking at the Savior and be involved in the sin the Savior came to save us from.
You cannot claim to know Him, sing to Him, lift your hands to Him (lifting up unholy hands with wrath and doubting) and kiss and have man to man, woman to woman sex. Let alone fornicate (porn), adultery, or be bisexual.
If you were to take a real look at Jesus like Thomas did, it wasn’t just the remarkable, undeniable fact that He was resurrected from the dead but the scars on His body is emblematic of the price He paid to redeem us from sin.
Just one look at each nail scared hand.
Just one look at each nail scared foot.
Just one look at the hole in His side.
Just one look at the blood trail of Jesus from Pilate’s pretorium to Golgotha’s hill.
To ignore looking at Jesus as He is, only underscores how intentionally blind people are to what He went through to save us from sin. We look at a clean Jesus before He died and we freeze frame Him there. But there is a bloody side of Jesus. A side that speaks volumes of what He went through to die for our sins.
Remember what John the Baptist said before Jesus was baptized in the river Jordan….
“Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”
Hebrews 12:1-2 says,
“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
The “let us” are the believers that became truly born again, having given up the life of sin, but fell into temptation and yielded to sin.
There is a difference between being an apostate and a carnal Christian.
An apostate (see Hebrews 6:4-8) is one that despised their salvation, has walked away from Jesus, and cast aside His salvation forever to return to the house of bondage forever. The person no longer claims Jesus as Lord. Apostates fit the profile of Esau. Esau gave up his birthright to Jacob and Esau lost the inheritance or blessing.
Incidentally, Esau was a fornicator and profane in his living (see Hebrews 12:16-17).
In other words, he was sexually immoral.
Fresh from the Holy Spirit.
If you are an apostate, you are no longer hypocritical. That’s because when you left Christ for good, you are doomed.
If you claim to be a believer in Jesus, but you were never born again, you are a sinner that has yet to be saved. You are neither a hypocrite or a believer. You are an impostor, pretender, or fictitious representative (hence, gay christians and gay churches). Make believe child of God fits the bill. It has hints of hypocrisy but the difference is that you know what a real child of God is but because of a love for sin, you refrain from becoming a genuine child of God, and you know what a real sinner is.
If you are a true believer in Christ but you constantly yield to temptation to sin, you are a hypocrite when you say you have no sin, but you commit sin, hence….
a carnal Christian is one that yields to temptation and fall into sin while attempting to practice righteousness simultaneously (see Luke 811-15 and Romans 8:1-17). You can’t be both and you can’t practice both at the same time. Your mind must be made up. This is the prodigal son attitude. Prodigal meaning wasteful. Eventually, the prodigal son returned and his father welcomed him with open arms and a kiss.
The insurgency of LGBT into the church is to attempt to legitimize lesbian, gay/homosexual, bisexual, transgender sin.
As long as the true church of the Lord Jesus Christ is here, we might as well preach and live the truth. It is not enough that we preach against it, and live against it. The hand is always out to reach into the flame and pull as many out as possible before it’s too late.
For the flame that many will be cast into, no man will be able to reach into it.
I am aware that many worry about offending those in the sin of homosexuality. Worried about offending people by declaring homosexual sins as an abomination. What the Lord is doing is that by His Word, He is letting us know how He detests the fact that what He created has turned to perverseness.
If we do not understand what God thinks about sin, any sin, then in our unregenerate minds, we believe that the Lord is fine with sin. And that’s the LGBT agenda, which is actually satan’s agenda.
God was never fine or “ok” about sin.
So while we preach the Word, we must use the same position of God. God detests sin. God hates sin. God does not like sin. God declares sin as an abomination. So to come out from being against God, we need to be born again.
Only a look. Just one real look at the real Savior, will turn you away from sin.
