When a homosexual, Gene Robinson was elected and ordained to be bishop of an Episcopal church in New Hampshire in 2003, it made it seem as if God does call homosexuals and lesbians into the ministry.
These preachers are all inside the church. They are agents of LGBT. Impostors and false teachers, preachers, and prophets.
What man selects and where man intrudes is not the call of God.
It’s one thing to experience a life changing experience, such as being born again. It’s another thing to live in sin. You must understand that every person that the Lord called into the ministry experienced a change. From the lifestyle of sin to the life of God to walk after the Lord in holiness.
Holiness is the distinguishing characteristic that sets apart a person for the Lord for His service.
Therefore, holiness and sin are incompatible.
In 1 John 1:5-10, John, an eyewitness apostle of the Lamb said,
“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.”
You just don’t go to sleep and wake up desiring to be a preacher. It’s much more than that. First, the God of the universe preselects who will be called into the ministry. You have no say in the matter. It’s all according to the plan and purpose of God before the world began.
When you see a practicing homosexual wear clergy garb, it is very deceptive. When you see a practicing heretic preach a gospel of inclusion (Carlton Pearson) of homosexuality, it is deception. When a person is sympathetic to the sin of homosexuality, or any sin, for that matter, what could they teach you about God?
The answer is nothing because they don’t know Him.
It is insulting to God and to those that stand the watch, ministering in truth.
It is a charade. They are masquerading as ministers of light living in darkness. They are impostors and could never be trusted to tell you the whole truth and counsel of the Word of God. Their sole goal is to steer you from God and hold you in bondage to your sins as something that a person could never escape from.
Thank God that the Word of God tells us different. That we do not have to believe the lie that all men cannot be free from sin. Jesus paid a horrible price to free us from satan’s grip of sin and death.
“He whom the Son sets free is free indeed, and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ has made you free and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. 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 from the law of sin and death. That through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”
That’s God’s Word on your freedom. You do not have to yield to your urges and impulses as a slave to sin. You can trust the Holy Spirit to make a way to escape every temptation to fall into sexual sin. It is a matter of obeying the Holy Spirit during your weak moments and receive the strength and grace of the Holy Spirit to overcome.
Don’t trust the person with a clean suit, ministerial collar, or the ministerial robe.
Trust the Word of God.
Practicing sin and practicing righteousness cannot be done. You cannot say that you know Him and live in sin at the same time. If you really know Him, you would run far from sin. You would run far from the very thing that Jesus came to die for.
That’s why LGBT goes to great lengths to attempt to remove homosexuality from the category of sin, make every effort to make same sex agreeable, acceptable, and glamorous. Use and abuse Civil Rights to declare the Bible’s standard against homosexuality and all sexual immorality as sexual discrimination, and sexual bigotry. And discredit the true teachings of the Scripture regarding the sin of homosexuality.
You cannot be holy and be in sin at the same time. It is impossible. Just like you cannot be completely wet and completely dry at the same time. You cannot stand on both sides of the fence at the same time. You can’t be in darkness and be in light at the same time. You cannot be a prisoner and be free at the same time.
You must understand that there is a separation required for those called into the ministry.
Each individual that the Lord used was pulled out. Abel provided a sacrifice that God required and Cain killed Abel because God rejected the fruit offering of Cain, something that the Lord didn’t require. The whole world was plunged into darkness, but Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Israel was in bondage to Pharaoh and the Lord raised up Moses to set His people free.
In all of these instances, they were pulled from people and separated by God for His use.
One of the things about the call of God is that the call is a sacred, holy, solemn call that changes a person’s life forever. The God of the universe calling a mere man is a very powerful and life changing moment.
Isaiah had a vision and saw the Lord. He thought that he would die but an angel took a coal from off the altar and touched Isaiah’s lips and the angel told him that Isaiah’s sins were purged.
The nation of Israel, the children of Jacob, had twelve sons. One of the sons was called Levi. God separated them for the service of the tabernacle. Their job was an exclusive job. They were to be God’s separated priests to minister to the Lord and to minister to the people.
In Deuteronomy 10, “the Lord separated the tribe of Levi to bear the ark of the covenant, to stand before the Lord to minister to Him and to bless in His name…”
When Paul and Barnabas was about to embark on their first missionary journey, the Holy Spirit said, “Separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”
When you are separated from the people and selected by God in accordance with His will, you belong to the Lord. However, this separation occurred because God willed it to be in accordance with His plan and purpose.
Remember, God is holy and you have to match the level of holiness as required by God to be His minister. Moses was a murderer, yet God called him to serve. Moses never murdered again. Saul, who was called Paul later, took people to prison and consented to the deaths of the saints of God.
Jesus changed him on the road to Damascus. Then called Him into the ministry. Paul never imprisoned people again but he was, himself, imprisoned and martyred for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Peter denied the Lord three times, yet he became an apostle of the Lamb and died a martyr. Evidently, he never denied the Lord again.
It makes sense for God to call people out of the world. Save them. Give them eternal life. And then call them into the ministry.
It makes sense for God to call ex-homosexuals and ex-lesbians to the ministry because the delivering power of God is a tremendous testimony to show that the Lord will use anyone that is willing to accept the call or invitation from the life of sin and get another call or invitation to minister the delivering power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
What doesn’t make sense is when a person claims to be a minister of the gospel and live in sin.
First, God is against sin. This is evidenced with Lucifer’s ejection from heaven when pride was found in his heart and that he attempted to overthrow God.
We must remember that when the Lord called His twelve apostles, Judas was a thief.
“…but because he was a thief, and had the money box, and he used to take what was put in it…”
He was a part of the ministry of Jesus but Judas never had a change of heart. A change of heart comes with repentance. Where there is no true repentance, there is true arrogance.
But we know that there were no homosexuals selected by the Lord.
How do we know?
The Sanhedrin always looked to discredit Jesus by making accusations against the Lord and His disciples.
“Now it happened that He went through the grain fields on the Sabbath, and as they went His disciples began to pluck the heads of grain. and the Pharisees said to Him, ‘Look, why do they do what is not lawful on the Sabbath?”
Usually, this would be called “nitpicking.”
If the Pharisees were looking for infractions of the law, every detail was identified to discredit the disciples of the Lord Jesus. If something major were found, it would be called…
Having said this, it is now important to understand that the call of God into the ministry is a sacred call.
The God of all flesh preselects his children to enter into His ministry. However, the first stop is to be saved.
So all who claim to be in the ministry but practice homosexuality, fornication, adultery, porn, self gratification, bisexuality, they cannot be trusted to have the call of God. In fact, if you were truly born again from above, do you think that you would sin? That’s what we are getting at. A life that is truly changed by the power of God has no desire to do the thing that God is against.
So it doesn’t make sense to listen to someone preach out of the Bible and do the very thing that the Bible said not to do. Does it?
This is exactly what we are up against.
Granted, many pastors struggle with their flesh but just because you are having a struggle, it doesn’t mean that you are to yield to the temptation. The difference between living in sin and overcoming sin is a decision.
If you are trying to help people overcome sin, you must receive the teaching of the Holy Spirit to train your flesh not to sin so you could teach others. But to practice sin and try to teach others how to overcome sin, that’s hypocrisy.
For blatant homosexuals that try to preach or act called to the ministry, it’s on another level.
When you tell people to yield to their sexual preferences instead of receiving grace and help in time of need to overcome, it is clear that you are an enemy of the cross of Christ. Because you cannot be a friend of God while being involved in the thing that God is against.
Ministers of the gospel are sent by God to help people get saved, born again, and then mature the believers in their walk in the Lord to overcome sin. Not yield to sin. And as a minister of the gospel, you are to lead the way by living holy, separated lives unto the Lord as an example to the believers to let them know that it is possible to live the way God called all His children to live.
When you have people that call themselves ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ and they call upon pastors to support the very thing that the Lord is against, they have turned away from the Lord and their calling to the ministry is, at the very least, considered questionable.
In fact, many would say, and I can’t blame them, that they were never called by God.
When you get the call of God, there is an unmistakable experience that takes place where you have had an encounter with God. Your job is not to take that call from God and pervert it; as many who are attached to the NAACP have done.
Separated, holy lives unto the Lord is what is required from His truly appointed minister.
If you are struggling with SSA (Same Sex Attraction) but you haven’t yielded to its devastating pull. In other words, you haven’t acted out these attractions, then you need to find a place in God to never yield to those urges and impulses. This is done through accountability with other ministers that will help you and pray for you to stay strong.
If you are struggling with Secret Sexual Sins, you need to get to a place of the light of His Word and expose these secrets.
I explain my exposure of Secret Sexual Sins in my book. Secret Sexual Sins.
Exposure comes in two ways.
One: Self Exposure.
This is when you elect to share your story to someone that you can trust or to a group of people. It all depends on who’s there. If it is a bunch of brothers that never shared their testimony, it’s tough but when you know that you need help, choose a time and place very carefully. Not everyone is willing to receive what you are exposing from your personal life.
That’s the down side. The up side is that you give God no story to tell.
Two: Divine Exposure
This is where after repeated attempts of the Lord to help you, you persist in the Secret Sexual Sins. The Lord uses people in strange places to expose your secret as dirty laundry. Granted. The Lord doesn’t do this often because it is embarrassing. But if you are a minister of the gospel and the Lord reached out to you on numerous occasions, and you ignored Him, it is just a matter of time before someone will drop a dime on you.
What the Lord is doing is that He is getting help to you so you could be the kind of minister that Lord needs you to be in the 21st Century.
Looking to help others out of sin.
If you are a practicing homosexual and you call yourself a preacher, you are an intentional deception artist. You have no intention of preaching the right ways of the Lord. You desire to stay in sin and you desire to trap others in homosexual sins.
YOU ARE NOT A PREACHER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IF YOU PRACTICE SIN, AND YOU TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO STAY IN SIN. YOU WERE NEVER CALLED BY GOD BECAUSE GOD DOESN’T CONTEND WITH HIMSELF. MUCH LESS WITH THOSE THAT ARE AGAINST HIM. YOUR ROBE, CLERICAL COLLAR, AND SLICK SUIT PERISHES WITH YOU, YOU IMPOSTOR OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!
Your punishment is warranted unless you repent.
Your punishment is moving closer with each passing minute.
These passages of Scripture from the Book of Jude, the half brother of Jesus, is earmarked for you should you fail to repent. The grain of sand in the hourglass of your life is drawing to a close.
“For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ. These are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you without fear, serving only themselves. They are clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever. Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”
At the end of the day, they and everyone know this……..
There is no controversy about what God, the Father and God, the Son said in Leviticus 18:22.
Homosexuality is “an abomination.”
But let’s look at what that verse said before it was declared “an abomination.”
God said, “You shall not lie with a man as with a woman…”
Then in verse 24, the Lord said…“Do not defile yourselves in these ways, for in all these things the nations are defiled which I am casting out before you.”
When the Lord said, “You shall not… and you are disobedient to what God said, changing or making laws to stop people from preaching against the sin of homosexuality, and calling the sin of homosexuality a “sexual orientation,” or hiding the sin of homosexuality behind Civil Rights and marriage, can never alter what God said.
“You shall not…”
It’s no different than driving through a stop light or stop sign.
How many of you have ever driven a car down a road any you saw a sign that said “DEAD END” but you continued anyway? You didn’t believe that sign, did you? You got to the end of the road and had to turn around. Maybe you didn’t see that sign but you still had to turn around.
In this life, all sins lead to a dead end. In this life, you do have a chance to turn around. That’s what repentance is about. God helping you to turn your life around.
It all starts with arriving at the end of the road.
Let me clarify the sin of homosexuality for LGBT.
Anyone that practices lesbianism or women acting out sexually with women, homosexual males acting out sexually with males or MSM, bisexual or having sex with women and with men, and transgender, which is surgically altering one’s gender to become that of the opposite.
If you practice these sins, you are part of the LGBT community.
Here is why the practice of these sins is sinful.
In John 3:20, the Lord Jesus said, “For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.”
So when we bring the light of the Word, those that practice evil hate it when we bring the light of the Word. Because they desire to practice evil. That’s why they are militant and defiant because it’s natural to defend something that is valued. When a person’s sexual immorality is highly valued, it will be vigorously defended. But not just defended.
When the Christians put out the light of truth, some LGBT adherents attempt to defend their sin by being offensive.
Those that practice the sin of homosexuality want to be left alone but they also want to have rights that heterosexual couples have so it would legitimize the sin of homosexuality. If there were no opposition to same sex marriage or other homosexual issues, it would be very easy for them to alter every law that prohibits homosexuality.
It is already done. There is a gay Bible that will be circulated.
No matter what they put out, we know the truth and we know the lie or error of their ways.
In 1 John 3:10, John, one of the 12 apostles of the Jesus said, “In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God…”
You see, children of the devil practice evil. Children of God practice righteousness.
How does the children of God practice righteousness? If you are a child of God, you know Who God is and you know what God said. And you do what God said, and you don’t do what God said not to do.
The intent is not to hate you but to tell you the truth about what you do.
1. Make homosexuality acceptable and no longer looked upon as a sin.
If you take note, why don’t they use HT (Homosexual Transgender) as the identity acronym instead of LGBT? Because the term homosexuality points to Leviticus 18:22, 1 Corinthians 6:9, and Romans chapter 1. So to remove themselves from the Biblical definition and God’s prohibition of the sin of homosexuality, a renaming was necessary.
You see, it’s all about the image that they want to project. If the word “homosexual” is not used and you use the word “gay or lesbian,” the edge is taken away of the sins practiced by homosexuals. There is also a false notion that homosexuality makes a person happy or that they are happy.
Hence, the term “gay.”
They appear happy outwardly, but after they engage in sexual activity, when they are alone, they are empty, hurting, and they desire to be loved and accepted. Except that they want to be loved and accepted the way they are; in sin. This is consistent with all sinners. They want to be able to sin at will without anyone telling them that what they are doing is wrong.
At the end of the day, why do they feel dejected, rejected, isolated, despondent, depressed, and angry? Why is it that some of them actually deceive and lie to themselves to make it appear that they are happy about their activities?
It’s because the shame of committing the sin of homosexuality is inescapable.
The love of evil and sin is what drives them.
Jesus said, “…and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”
It’s the same with committing adultery, fornication, watching men or women, watching porn, masturbation. There is a promise of complete satisfaction but it’s never achieved.
Proverbs 27:20 says,
“Hell and destruction are never full, so the eyes of man are never satisfied.”
The rider on the carriage only gives a promise to the horse. Trot and that carrot is yours. Except the carrot is ever before them and they will never come close to tasting it. Great carrot to look at, but they will never taste it.
After all that trotting, the hunger intensifies. The longing to have increases. But there, the carrot stays.
Another feeling is the feeling of shame that comes upon all who sin sexually.
It’s the conscience (the voice of the human spirit) telling you that you have violated the Word of God.
It is impossible to make sin appear or feel righteous, hence, it is impossible to feel good about sin.
At the end of the day, it’s not about who won an argument or who scored points. It’s about what’s right and what’s wrong. It’s about either fighting to continue in sin or receive freedom from the open prison house of sin.
Christians get no pleasure out of establishing a point and winning an argument.
We get pleasure when a person caught in sin turn from sin to the Lord. When a person sees that light is better than darkness, we get pleasure when they final conclude that the lifestyle was not God’s will for them. We get pleasure when they walk away from the house of ill-repute and come into the house of freedom, liberty, and true love.
2. Make Christians walk in the love that Jesus talks about.
If there is a way not to bring attention to the sin of homosexuality, it would be to make Christians out as the one that hates. Make the child of God out to not follow after Jesus because they do not love us or any one.
Little do most understand that if we didn’t love you, we wouldn’t even bother. That’s why when this is done correctly, (the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ), we do it because we really love you and we do not want to see you be destroyed by a devil that doesn’t care one bit about you.
We cannot love sin because God hates sin. We love you as a person because we all were sinners, in need of the Savior. We’ve been where you are and we can tell you, in Jesus, away from sin, He gets sweeter than the moment before. Instead of hiding or living as a prisoner in shame, we are out, in freedom, and saturated by His love.
I’ve never had SSA. But I know the demonic power of lust very well. The power of lust is not different except in preference. But when the power of God usurped the power of lust, true acceptance and the love of God finally flood my soul. No longer do I have to rely on myself to make myself happy. All the happiness I need is found in Jesus.
When a person desires to get the heat of the light off of the sinful lifestyle, switch and bate tactics to divert from the truth of the fact that homosexuality is a sin, is a common tactic.
You will always find fault in Christians when it comes to love but you will never be able to find fault in the love of God.
The answer is found in three places.
John 3:16, Romans 5:8, and 2 Peter 3:9.
God loved us. God demonstrated His love towards us. God is not willing that any should perish.
True love is in knowing that God did something for you that no man or woman could ever do for you sexually.
At the end of the day, you will either sulk in despair, hopelessness, despondency, and depression, or bask in His presence of freedom, liberty, and true, unconditional love, brought to you personally, by God.
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.
