Homosexual Teachers In Catholic Schools

The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 12:25-26 (NKJV Strong’s) “…Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?”

The reason why I’m using this text is because in many of our houses of worship, sexual immorality is ever present. And we shouldn’t fool ourselves. When the catholics have been hit with sexual immorality lawsuits, which threatens, not only their existence, but their claim to morality, it’s clear that you have to look at the root of their organization.

The whole purpose of the protestant movement was to destroy the strangle hold of the monopoly of Biblical doctrine.

Martin Luther, John Wycliff, and William Tyndale, among so many other courageous persons, were responsible for the systematical dissolution of the rule of catholicism on the lives of people.

The best way to accomplish this was to make a duly English translated copy of the Bible from Hebrew and Greek, available to each person as opposed to depending upon a “priest” to give the “homily.”

God be praised.

For many of our readers, we’re aware that catholics read our blogs, and may object. You’re entitled to object, but do some due diligence and do a side by side comparison of doctrines.

Many will argue that they’re just as Christian as any other Christian denomination. Just do a simple doctrinal comparison between catholicism and other protestant denominations and you will see a conclusively stark contrast.

My point is that it’s not just a “catholic thing.”

In ALMOST every denomination and non denominations, there’s elements of QUESTIONABLE man made doctrines intertwined in the truth of the Scriptures.

Usually, it’s a dead giveaway that deception is the intent.

Even worse, is that we turn a blind eye to certain practices occurring in our houses of worship that we know is against true Biblical teaching.

And in many policy protocols, denominational teaching should absolutely mirror Biblical teaching, but in practice, some will either come up with a form of godliness in their policies, or make crude exceptions.

Such is the case here.

In catholic schools, it’s certain that SOME OF the people they employ are people that practice lawlessness in violation of true Biblical teachings. We generally turn a blind eye to avoid lawsuits that would follow should organizations come to their senses.

Even in Black Baptist churches, and other places where Blacks worship, pastors, deacons, worship leaders, music ministers, and others engage in Secret Sexual Sins while performing their duties.

In particular, hiring homosexual music ministers, choir masters, and organists.

For decades, we’ve ignored holiness in all that we do just to have “gifted,” talented singers, musicians, choir masters, and organists.

But to have them perform in houses of worship, we intentionally disobey the holy commandment of the Lord.

We dare disrespect the Lord than to disrespect the practitioners of all vile sexual sins.

We dare honor man more than we ought to honor God.

We make exceptions, sweep their sins under a carpet instead of commanding them to repent, and get their sins washed away forever by the blood, demanding that they live holy lives in obedience to the Scriptures.

Because employment doesn’t last forever.

But dying in your sins is forever.

While the firing of a catholic teacher that practices the vile sin of homosexuality is truly commendable, if a tree is rotten at the core, bad fruit will continue to manifest.

It’s incumbent upon all that call on the name of the Lord to “…depart from iniquity…”

We can’t have iniquity in the house of worship and righteousness present at the same time. Just like you never see the dominance of the moon dominate the dominance of the sun.

The Bible says that the moon rules the night in the book of Genesis, but even the moon is dependent upon the sun because the moon reflects the dominate light of the sun. The moon is powerless to emit any light of its own.

Light is never dominated by darkness.

Such much be the same with our houses of worship.

Righteousness cannot live with unrighteousness (see 2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

We know that a lawsuit may follow, but for now, it’s an example to all that name the name of Christ.

It’s time to put out of our houses of worship those that refuse to repent, and put out those that insist on the practice of lawlessness while pretending to be a practitioner of righteousness. It’s not to say that this catholic teacher that practices the vile sin of homosexuality was pretending, but sadly, we know of a lot of “gay christians.”

You can’t be gay and be a Christian.

You’re one or the other. Not both. Just like you can’t be an adulterer Christian. A thief Christian. A lying Christian. A fornicating Christian, etcetera.

Now we don’t know if this catholic teacher was offered a chance to repent and conform to their non tolerance of homosexual policy.

But as far as protestant denominations are concerned, the heart of the Father is to offer repentance from dead works, and faith towards the Lord. If people refuse to repent, they could no longer openly, or covertly practice sin and be employed in a house of worship.

It’s incumbent upon church employers to ensure that a non tolerant of practicing sexual lawlessness policy is articulated and maintained. And that a very deliberate vetting of prospectus employees take place.

Some will argue that it’s discriminatory.

The Bible tells us that a “little leaven leavens the whole lump.”

Just like when the acting defense secretary had to resign because years ago, he was involved in a violent domestic dispute.

Just like Judge Kavanaugh.

Vetting is very important and the houses of worship need to do the same.

LGBT- Pushing BACK The Forces Of Darkness

The world has had its way with shoving the sin of homosexuality down the throats of believers and unbelievers.

All across the world, we are hearing of tremendous stories of believers doing what we were supposed to do, no matter what laws they pass.

As I have said, if the sin of homosexuality had any merits of its own, there would be no need to force the issue.

The church is PUSHing them back and we do not need to make any laws to make it happen.

Pray Until Something Happens.

Preach Until Sinners Hear.

Persevere Until Satan Hurts.

The momentum is picking up.

Here is a very powerful Scripture that gives us the basis for this PUSH.

Isaiah 59:18-20.

“According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay,
Fury to His adversaries,
Recompense to His enemies;
The coastlands He will fully repay.
“So shall they fear
The name of the Lord from the west,
And His glory from the rising of the sun;
When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.
“The Redeemer will come to Zion,
And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,”
Says the Lord.”

Listen to how the Amplified Bible puts it in verse 19.

“So [as the result of the Messiah’s intervention] they shall [reverently] fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him and put him to flight [for He will come like a rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives].”

When homosexuality comes, the Lord Jesus will intervene and put them to flight.

Psalm 2 is still in its prophetic setting but the essence of this Psalm gives us the backdrop as to why the elite of the sin of homosexuality is pushing against the Lord. Notice verses 1 through 5.

“Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
“Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:”

Even after the SCOTUS rules on same sex marriage in either direction, the elite of homosexuality will never cease to plot against the Lord God and against His Anointed One, or the Lord Jesus.

They will always seek to break Their (The Father and The Son’s) bonds in pieces and cast Their cords from sinners.

Meaning that they do not want to be bound by righteousness. As Paul said, when we were bound in sin we were freed from righteousness.

This is the goal of the elite of the sin of homosexuality.

But the Lord will hold them in derision, He shall speak to them in His wrath or anger, and distress them in His deep displeasure.

No matter what gains they get, the Lord will push them back.

Make no mistake about it.

It may not look that way for many parts of the world, in particular, the United States but in other places, the Body of Christ is taking a stand.

Why?

Because the elite of the sin of homosexuality is purporting an agenda to go after children.

In the Italian country, parents are taking a stand and they are pushing the forces of darkness back.

The momentum must be maintained so we do not lose ground.

What ground we take, the enemy will seek to take it back.

We must not let this happen.

Here in America, we need to take a page out of their book and make a concerted effort to take a stand against homosexuality. They are after our children and we are the child’s only defense in Jesus.

Homosexuality Is About To Be Constitutionalized In The United States: Rise And Pray

My wife received an email from the International House Of Prayer concerning oral arguments that will be held before the SCOTUS. We’ve should have been praying about this months ago. However, we cannot afford to wait until April 28 when these arguments will take place.

If you are a detractor, disregard this blog. If you are against prayer, disregard this blog. If you are an opponent, disregard this blog. If you have given up on this nation, disregard this blog. If you have said, “What’s the use?, and “What good will it do?,” disregard this blog.

But if you are serious about making a stand today, not next week, fall on your face before God and pray like you’ve never prayed before.

When it is said and done, will you stand before Jesus to answer to Him for not seeking His face and turning from your wicked ways?

LGBT has had it’s way for a long time.

But the Lord could be down a gazilion points with 0.01 left on the clock and still run the devil out the gym.

Andrew Murray said in a book on Prayer that “Prayer is power with God.”

Like never before, we need to exercise this power to see God do a mighty work in the earth.

The Lord doesn’t need but one person that will decide to give themselves to prayer and fasting to seek God.

Will you be that one vessel?

2 Chronicles 16:9 says, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.”

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Because you are reading this blog, the Lord has found you. Will you humble yourself and pray, and seek His face, and turn from your wicked ways (prayerlessness)?

Listen to what Samuel said in 1 Samuel 12:23-25.

“Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and the right way. Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. But if you still do wickedly, you shall be swept away, both you and your king.”

If we fail to pray, we sin a great sin. If we insist on doing wickedly, we will be swept away………the church and political leadership (all three branches of this government).

Together, we can get the job done.

Will you join us?

Here is a good prayer to daily pray for this urgent situation.

PRAYER FOR SUPREME COURT

Father, in the name of Jesus, we pray for the Supreme Court of his nation. The docket that is before this court is about the constitutionality of the sin of homosexuality. We, as Your people, beseech You to move into the courtroom and direct their minds not to establish this vile sin to prevail in this nation.

Let the proponents of homosexuality be disappointed, and set in derision. Let them be confounded and be without the wisdom that is from underneath.

Let them recognize the righteous judgments of the Lord and repent of this wickedness.

This nation is in the balance.

But You have seen this from the beginning, and this did not catch You off guard.

Therefore, the outcome is well known to You.

We have turned from You and Your Word, we have sinned by not being diligent on our watch. We have sinned by not holding ourselves accountable to Your Word. Forgive us as You have said in Your holy Word. But we have returned to You and stand on Your righteous Word as the righteousness of God in Christ.

We have removed the leaven of sin from our lives and we stand as Your children, holy, sanctified, and consecrated.

Quote 2 Chronicles 7:14

Now look upon this land and the hearts of men.

Let not the unrighteous prevail in this hour.

Let not the sin of homosexuality prevail in this land.

Let not the proponents who devise wickedness prevail.

Let not the pressure of the hour push us to live in fear and terror.

As your Word says, Lord.

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” Proverbs 14:24

“Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you;
And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.
For the Lord is a God of justice;
Blessed are all those who wait for Him.”  Isaiah 30:18

“But let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.” Amos 5:24

Let Your name and Your Word prevail, and be glorified and honored!

In Jesus’ name! Amen!!!!!

GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz is sending a letter to tens of thousands of pastors asking them to stand with God and pray during the two-hour time frame on April 28:

“On Tuesday, April 28, the United States Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in favor of ‘same-sex marriage.’ How will the American church respond?

How can the church rise to the occasion in this situation? … I urge you to consider the following—

1. Preach about biblical marriage on Sunday, April 26.

2. Lead prayer services on Tuesday, April 28.

Will we be on the right side of history, the side occupied by the Author of history? Will we discard an institution, ordained by God, which has brought so much stability and happiness to the human family? … Rightly or wrongly, the Supreme Court will take a stand on marriage this summer. Let’s take ours now.

God bless America,

American Renewal ProjectIt is time for You to act, O Lord,
For they have regarded Your law as void.
Psalm 119:126
Pastor,It is time for You to act. We are asking the 100K American Renewal = Project pastors for 2 actions:

1) Preach on Biblical Marriage on Sunday April 26, 2015.
The Apostle Paul calls marriage a “profound mystery.” A man and woman becoming one flesh through marriage is more than a civil contract, it represents “Christ and the Church” (Ephesians 5:22–6:9; Colossians 3:18–4:1).

2) Lead Prayer Services on Tuesday, April 28th, 11:30 AM–1:30 PM in their sanctuaries.
This two-hour window will focus on prayer. We intend to cry for mercy for what we, believers, have allowed to happen to our nation, that was established “For the Glory of God and the advancements of the Christian faith.” (The Mayflower Compact).

Supreme Court BuildingThe U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments on same-sex marriage on Tuesday, April 28th. Justice Ginsberg and Justice Kagan even now have performed homosexual marriage ceremonies. Their integrity should insist that they recuse themselves for lack of impartiality; but they are the law. Such secularists lack virtue.

America has become drugged by the cup of Secularism — a false and wicked religion — articulated in the Humanist Manifesto, a creed that denied supernatural relevation, and so the revelation of God in Jesus Christ. The ‘religion’—as it was called in the Humanist Manifesto (1933)—was imposed by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1963, an 8-1 decision, in Abington School District v. Schempp. Lone dissenting Justice Potter Stewart prophesied, “…[the decision to remove the Bible from public schools] led not to true neutrality with respect to religion, but to the establishment of a religion of secularism.” 

That proud and tragic decision has given birth to a complete moral breakdown in America, those doing this to our country must be held accountable. The wise Solomon says, “Where there is no revelation the people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction” (Proverbs 29:10). America’s Founders laid the foundation on biblical virtue, His Word. Udo W. Middleman, president of the Francis A. Schaeffer Foundation says, “He has told us in his Word how we should live and order our lives, set our priorities, and what sense to make of being human.” A Christian nation once, America is now ruled by an oligarchy, a majority of nine, representing, “Vice stalking in virtue’s garb.”

God defines sin, not the U.S. Supreme Court. Having removed the fixed point in order to judge in 1963, the esteemed Justices, in hubris, decided to challenge God’s rule, God’s throne, and God’s rightful Honor. America is on the verge of learning something that can be learned in no other way—rebellion against God brings consequences. There is no safety in distance from God.

What is the antidote, the counteracting agent, to the foisting of homosexual marriage on a once Christian nation? “In the day of my trouble I will call upon you, for You will answer me.” (Psalm 86:7)

“Our experience confirms us in the belief that Jehovah the living God really does aid those who call upon him, and therefore we pray and mean to pray, not because we are so fascinated by prayer that for its own sake we would continue in it if it proved to be mere folly and superstition, as vain philosophers assert; but because we really, indeed, and of a truth, find it to be a practical and effectual means of obtaining help from God in the hour of need. There can be no reason for praying if there be no expectation of the Lord’s answering. ” Charles H. Spurgeon

Why are not the churches of America filled with prayer services, led by senior pastors, asking God for mercy of what we have allowed to a once Christian nation? Who will, by faith, help America’s pastors track down the weapons of warfare? Prayer and tears are the Christians weapons of war, very little cannonading and bombardment appears to be occurring in America’s sanctuaries today.

– REQUEST –
Turn on your images!We are asking the 100K American Renewal Project pastors to lead prayer services on Tuesday, April 28th, 11:30AM–1:30PM, in your sanctuaries. This two-hour window is not sermonizing, but prayer, led by God’s shepherds; Jehovah is not interested in numbers, if it’s you and two others, then God will be honored. We intend to cry for mercy for what we, believers, have allowed to happen to our nation established by our Founders on a spiritual mission, “For the Glory of God and the advancements of the Christian faith.” (The Mayflower Compact)

We need Gideons to stand, and lead prayer services, Tuesday, April 28th, 11:30AM–1:30PM. For those of the flock who cannot attend the prayer service led by the shepherd, please ask that they stop where they are and pray; we need a miracle.

Michael Bloomberg Claims Spot In Heaven – Not So Fast

My friend, Brother Kevin Boudreau, shared a link about former mayor Michael Bloomberg. I thank Kevin for bringing this to my attention.

Why?

Many people believe that their good works will get them into heaven.

Not so fast.

A couple of years ago, the mayor saw a video demanding that he repent and change his ways or the city was going down. All of a sudden, mortality comes into play.

When you see people declaring that they will get into heaven, you take note.

The Bible is clear about what the Lord said as to who is allowed into heaven.

Here are some Scriptures to go by.

John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”

Isaiah 64:6 “But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; (menstruated cloths), we all fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”

Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

Here is the first link that was passed to me.

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/375856/michael-bloombergs-eschatology-patrick-brennan

But here is the direct quote after searching

“Mr. Bloomberg was introspective as he spoke, and seemed both restless and wistful. When he sat down for the interview, it was a few days before his 50th college reunion. His mortality has started dawning on him, at 72. And he admitted he was a bit taken aback by how many of his former classmates had been appearing in the “in memoriam” pages of his school newsletter.

But if he senses that he may not have as much time left as he would like, he has little doubt about what would await him at a Judgment Day. Pointing to his work on gun safety, obesity and smoking cessation, he said with a grin: “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”

The first thing that caught my eye was he said “if there is a God.” It’s strange that we know there is heaven but we are not sure that there is the God of heaven. And also note that there will be no “interview?”

That’s right there will be no interview. It’s called Judgment.

Here is the link if you think this is a joke….

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/16/us/bloomberg-plans-a-50-million-challenge-to-the-nra.html?action=click&contentCollection=Politics&module=RelatedCoverage&region=Marginalia&pgtype=article

It is clear that the former mayor wants to make a difference with the remaining time he has on earth, whatever that may be. However, according to the Word of God, we can never do enough on earth to make a difference and use that as “leverage” to boldly assume that it would be enough to gain entrance into the kingdom of heaven.

The Bible is clear about sin and righteousness.

But the Word of God is also clear about rich men getting into heaven.

Matthew 19:23-24 “Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

Let’s be clear.

The Lord is not looking to banish all rich people. The Lord desires for all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. Rich people banish themselves by imposing upon God their terms of getting into heaven. Few understand that heaven is holy because God is holy. Few understand that man cannot work to get into heaven.

The work was done on the cross of Christ.

It’s called grace!

Unmerited or unearned favor.

Earning our way into heaven cannot be done because God does not want you to boast about how great and good a guy you are.

What we do as far as good works is not enough to earn our way into heaven.

Titus 3:5-7 says “…not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

A sinner must be made new. A sinner must be washed. A sinner must be cleansed.

We must admit or acknowledge that we are sinners.

We throw ourselves upon the mercy of the Lord to save us because we cannot save ourselves from sin, death, and hell, and later, the lake that burns with fire and brimstone forever.

Why is it according to His mercy?”

Mercy prevents what we rightfully deserve.

We deserve punishment because “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

“There is no one righteous, no, not one.”

The Righteous Judge of all the earth demanded that man be sentenced to death and eternal separation from the Holy God because of our sins. But He made a way out for man. He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to die for our sins.

“Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”

To be justified means to declare a person innocent of all charges even though they are guilty of all charges.

Now bear in mind that we all have or had stuff that would prevent us all from getting into heaven.

We all have stuff.

The one thing that condemns us to hell is whether we believe in the provision of salvation, graciously made by Jesus. If we declare that Jesus is Lord, and believe in our heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved (Romans 10:9-10).

Then looking at the works of Michael Bloomberg and the world, we see that his support for same sex marriage is before him. This is not the sin that will prevent him from getting into heaven. This is a sin that God is against. God is against the sin of homosexuality. His performance of officiating a same sex wedding is a work of darkness.

Then there is the “morning after pill” given to teens when they get pregnant as students in the NYC Board of Education system to reduce the number of abortions in school children. This is not the sin that would prevent him form getting into heaven. However, this is the sin that God is against. Fornication and murder.

If he repents or change his mind, ask for God’s forgiveness of his sins, reconsider his wicked spiritual condition, declares that Jesus is Lord, and believe that God raised Jesus from the dead, he and all rich men would be saved.

The Book of Revelation tells us that we would be judged by the works we have done.

Revelation 20:11-15 says “Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them.

And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life.

And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.

Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”

The most important part about this Scripture is whether your name is in the Book of Life.

So, if Michael Bloomberg is reading this, my advice to you, sir, is to repent, ask for God’s forgiveness. He is gracious and kind. He will abundantly pardon you of all your sins. The Holy Spirit will come into your heart. He will take your stony heart and make it new and responsive to God. Then find a good Bible believing local assembly where people are living the Word of God. Get water baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Don’t even bring your check book. Leave that at home.

Any pastor or church that looks like they want to hound you for any money is not the right church to attend. On the other hand, if you think that righteousness could be bought or attained by your giving, you are sadly mistaken.

Leave your money at home. It is not necessary to get into the kingdom.

But if you love your money more than God, you might be able to buy a great looking casket for your remains, but you will not have a place in heaven on your own merits.

The Gold Standard : A Powerful Retreat Coming In November 2014

My friend Pastor DL Foster of Witness Freedom Ministries will be sponsoring a powerful retreat for anyone struggling with SSA and is looking to find fellowship, instruction in righteousness and holiness in the presence of the Lord.

I must point out that registration is limited.

The first 100 will be able to secure a seat. When you click the link, you will see all the information you need to apply. It is affordable but if you are serious about going, make your move before the music stops. 

No, I am not the facilitator of this. Just wanted to pass the Word. Anyone that is doing a worthwhile ministry to help ex-gays or ex-homosexuals maintain their deliverance, I will pass the Word. Every church and every pastor must be willing to point the direction to other ministries that major in things that we normally do not major in.

By praying for the success of this retreat, by passing the word, and money towards these kinds of ministry, we are seeing to it that the fruit that is brought into the house of the Lord remains in the house.

The climate in the United States and abroad is looking to keep people trapped in the sin of homosexuality. However, all across the country, we know that there are brothers that are looking for places where they can feel safe and have a sense of purpose, and belonging in a Spirit led, Bible based environment.

Very few ministries are geared toward this and this one is at the top of its game, and the list.

I strongly recommend this retreat to any brother looking to fellowship with other brothers that were freed from the law of sin and death.

As Paul said, “There is therefore now no condemnation to those that are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit.”

Deliverance is just one of many steps in the life of a believer in Christ.

The work is in the maintenance.

I believe that ministries like this is geared toward helping people maintain their sanctification and holiness in the Lord.

Pastor Foster once said to me that “Heterosexuality is not the goal. Holiness is.”  

Now why would a man like me that never struggled with SSA would want to make a pitch for this ministry?

Sexual struggles are the same, the preferences are different.

The Spirit of God is the same. He ministers to all who struggle with any attraction that pulls a man away from the Savior into sin.

If you are looking for a place to fellowship, click the link below and make plans to attend.

You go everywhere else for vacation to enjoy yourself. Spend all sorts of money on other things.

Again, seats are limited. Only the first 100 will gain access.

Why not spend time learning with other brothers in the Lord some valuable lessons on living for the Lord and fellowshipping with overcomers in the Lord.

The link is below. Do not wait another second. Go ahead. The Lord is waiting for you, and the brothers that will meet you there are waiting for you too.

When it comes to conversion therapy, we all know that therapy, absent of God and His Word, is man’s way of dealing with spiritual and mental issues. The Lord is Lord of all flesh. He knows how to deal with our internal issues that ultimately is expressed externally. When it comes to sin, the only remedy is the power of God. The gospel of Jesus Christ (see Romans 1:16).

With that being said, we now have two states that ban gay conversion therapy.

California and New Jersey.

Governor Christie signed the bill “reluctantly.”

Apparently, he and president Obama had a long talk when the president inspected the damage when Sandy came through. Seems like they talked about other issues too. It’s bad enough that this governor is looking to legalize marijuana use for medical reasons. Now he signs a law against gay conversion therapy. Which everyone knows is a precursory law to suppress the church from teaching or preaching that homosexuality is a sin, and that only the power of God can deliver to the uttermost, those bound in the sin of homosexuality.

We all know that this is part of the LGBT agenda to go after the church to silence the Bible and the power of God. It’s a great thing that they cannot write legislation to stop God. Not that He could be stopped but this is just another frustrating move of the devil and his children to silence righteousness.

Once again, it’s the deliberate criminalization of righteousness and the decriminalization of sin.

Sin is a crime against God and His holy Word. Sin is the deliberate, intentional act, thought, or speech against God.

The devil knows that he can’t get at God and His Word so in a very dumb way, the prince of the power of the air is moving in the children of disobedience and wrath to craft ways to stop the power of God operating in the children of God.

The Holy Spirit will continue His work in the earth to convict the world of sin.” The Holy Spirit will continue, unabated, to wash and regenerate every person that repents and places their full trust in Jesus for salvation. The power of the blood by the eternal Spirit will continue to speak better things of redemption, cleansing, and victory over ALL SINS, including the sin of homosexuality. The Father will abundantly pardon as He said He would do in His Word, upon your repentance. The blood will never lose its power. The name that is above every name, the name of Jesus, along with the Holy Spirit, will continue His dominance over all dark spirits in the realm of the spirit.

Freedom over every enslaving yoke is given. “Therefore, if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

So, people of God, we have nothing to fear of LGBT and their laws. God knows how to work and break every chain.

The way this law is set up sounds like the Muslim world that persecute their own people should they come to Christ. Human atrocities such as beheading, mutilations, and other human rights atrocities. In their Koran, they put out the death threat on any Muslim for converting to Christ.

The Lord never prevents anyone from leaving Him, and He never uses force to keep people in His kingdom. However, should a person defect from Christ on their own choice, they are condemned by their own decision. The Lord will never force a person to get saved and the Lord will never force a person to stay saved. The devil does quite the opposite and will lash out at anyone that claim to be saved from the sin of homosexuality.

Their flawed argument against salvation is that homosexuals do not believe a person is saved according to the Bible. They believe that to attempt to change a person does more harm than good. This is a lie from the devil. The harm is done in sin, not salvation and righteousness. The harm is spiritual, mental, and physical.

Governor Christie, who claims to be a practicing Catholic, believes that homosexuality is not a sin.

Well, thank God that the Bible is always right and those that do not know the Bible are always wrong.

People that are not saved are not competent or qualified to tell anyone what is sin and what isn’t sin.

Politicians that aren’t believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and disciples of the teachings of Jesus, and the Bible are not competent or qualified to tell anyone what is sin, and what isn’t sin.

Folks ought to leave the business of preaching and teaching the Word of God to those that are saved. That means they know the Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Folks ought to leave the preaching and teaching of the Word of God to those who walk in the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Folks ought to leave the preaching and teaching of the Word of God to those whom the Lord specifically called into the ministry, were tested by competent ministers, and ordained for the gospel ministry.

LGBT and Governor Christie fail in all of the above.

They do not know the Lord. They do not know the Bible. Therefore, they are incompetent and unqualified in the gospel ministry.

The Bible is clear about sin. The Bible is clear about the remedy of sin. The Bible is clear about the love of God for sinners. The Bible is clear about heaven and hell. What LGBT and other state governments want to do is suppress the truth and eliminate the preachers of the truth. If the truth could be suppressed and preachers prohibited, sin can run freely. However, the Lord has His hand stretched out to the world and He is Faithful and Just to forgive and offer eternal life to those that repent.

I am not offering any advice.

I am saying that government need to stay out of the business of righteousness. Keep out of the Bible and stop oppressing preachers.

Of course, they will say that we preachers need to stay out of their business of establishing sin in the lives of people. We refuse to do so because we were called to preach the gospel to the nations. Preachers cannot force anyone to get saved. Preachers cannot force people to walk in righteousness. Nonetheless, we are still charged to preach the Word of God whether folk want to hear it or not.

To impose laws to suppress the preaching of the Word of God is nothing more than totalitarianism.

It is like we are taking a page out of the Soviet Union.

As long as there is breath in our lungs and blood running warm in our veins, we will obey God, preach the Word of God, and should anyone repent and believe the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, we stand ready to disciple them in the teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ, to walk holy and righteous just as Jesus did.

LGBT and The New Gay Look Of The NBA – GCMWatch & EXMinistries Links

GCMWatch and EXMinistries, as always, is front and center on this issue.

As you know Jason Collins announced his coming out of the locker room, excuse me……”closet” with his homosexual sin.

Here are their links to this breaking story about Chris Broussard’s stand on the sin of homosexuality. Chris’ stand seemed spontaneous, with holy passion, deliberately inspired by the Holy Spirit, and without rehearsal.

http://www.gcmwatch.com/10088/chris-broussard-in-the-center-court-with-the-truth-about-homosexuality

http://exministries.wordpress.com/2013/04/30/white-house-responds-to-im-gay-collins-receives-private-call-from-44/

When you make and take a deliberate, intentional stand against the sin of homosexuality, and do it on international TV, you will catch it for doing it.

This was a “well done, good and faithful servant” moment.

In the GCMWatch piece that shared the second prepared response by Chris’, there seems to be a capitulation.

However, this tactic is known to happen against prisoners of war where you are forced to read propaganda in order to soften or redirect the bold testimony of Chris. As with all the heroes of faith, we need to pray for him that God would protect him and his family.

In the EXMinistries piece, the very pictures of Collins cross dressing while looking huh…..GQ is what LGBT loves. As cross dressers, it is just another form of homosexuality. Transgender men are nothing more than physically rearranged men surgically adjusted to appear as a woman. It will be shocking and stunning that should a man die in a woman’s body, what will they be resurrected as?

The answer is found in Matthew 19:4-5. In the beginning, He made them male and female. To change out of the flesh of man into the flesh of woman, the Lord will resurrect you to the resurrection of the condemned in the gender you were born with. Not in the gender you wish to have.

Anyway, we see that we need to speak without mincing words of the Word of God in the face of persecution without fail or fear.

Stepping into the firefight with LGBT is the kind of fighting that the Body of Christ is sorely lacking. There is no courage these days to take on the Goliath of our times. Sexual immorality. Like Saul, we sit in a tent on the other side of the valley, way on the other side so that we won’t hear the taunting of Goliath. We got armor for others to wear but we refuse to put on our own and go after that uncircumcised Philistine.

As the days progress, there will be fewer voices that will be willing to jump out of the foxhole and use their weapon. Battles are not won in the foxhole. They are won in the valley of the shadow of death.

There was never a safe place to speak the truth and sooner or later, the remaining remnant will be out in the open air, waging war like the gladiator days of old. Fearless. Courageous. Guts. Strength. Yup, just the way the Lord Jesus fought and won.

The LGBT community was waiting for this day to come. They are using every means of the media to push their wicked, perverted agenda. They are pushing in for a major assault. It seems that LGBT has returned to the tactics of battling the states for marriage equality.

Why?

There seems to be a strong indication that the SCOTUS will not rule favorably for marriage equality. It was expected that Proposition 8 be ruled unconstitutional and that certain parts of DOMA would be struck down to pave the way for homosexuals to marry and be recognized as regular married couples.

That’s why we are seeing some things happening behind the scenes.

How many of you know that the Lord is at work and that the prayers of the righteous avails much?

Every time you see something like this, it is a serious pursuit to legitimize the sin of homosexuality, but the prayers of the saints are at work in the earth and the God that hears our holiness in our prayers will never let any evil agenda overcome the church.

There are more announcements that will shock and surprise some. Just be at rest and be ready to stand for the testimony of Jesus. This is not R and R time. Rest is when we have finished the course and the race that is set before us. Let us, as Paul said, strive lawfully to receive the crown that fades not away. For the time is short, and the day is at hand. As James said, the Lord is standing in the door.

This is not the time to hold your testimony. Be ready to hold your head up and speak the Word of the Lord as instructed by the Holy Spirit. For the Lord will put His Word in your mouth, and you are charged to speak, what thus says the Lord. Only be courageous. Be bold and be strong, for the Lord your God is with you.

Finally, it was disheartening to see the POTUS and the FLOTUS be used like pawns to forward the evil, wicked agenda of LGBT and Planned Abortionhood. This is unbecoming of African Americans to be allowed at the table of power and be used to forward an agenda that further erode the African American community. The legacy of this president will be that he supported the systematic killing and destruction of his own race. Through the sin of homosexuality and abortion, the beast is being fed.

So if you are not appalled or disturbed that something could have been done to stop the genocide, look no further than yourself that voted him in office. You are just as culpable. Guilty by reason of association. Especially those that profess to know the Lord. You bear the greater sin because you could have seen this coming and not vote in such a way, that more lives are lost through this continuation of the ministry of death and destruction propagated by the puppet masters of LGBT and Planned Abortionhood.

Be sure that the Lord Jesus will not mince words for you when you stand there to render an account.

The Fight And Courage To Never Sin That Sin Again

For the last four years and a few months, it’s been a rewarding journey. The fight to keep yourself from the sin that you were held bound to is the toughest battle of your life. Over these years, the growth in the Lord and the learning experience gained was invaluable. The previous blogs that I have written revealed a lot about how the Lord worked with me to keep myself pure from porn and masturbation.

The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life surrounded me like the Indians circling the cowboys.

In 1 Corinthians 9:27, it was a critical key to being successful against the onslaught of sexual temptation. If we do not beat down our flesh, the flesh and the mind will dictate the way we live our lives.

There comes a point in time where we must stop what we are doing and reconsider the fact that if we sin constantly, after having received instructions from the Lord about how to walk in the victory achieved on the cross, then satan is our real lord.

We know that when we sin after we receive instructions, we are disqualified. We are not fit or prepared for the Master’s use. We call it a “mistake,” to soften the blow that we have sinned. Sin is a very strong word. When a person hear this word, it is a clear indication that you violated the known will of God.

In order to “Come Clean,” acknowledgement of sin is required. Side stepping, story telling to deflect the blow of the sin, and other nifty, deft ways to deal with sin only reveals that we have failed to truly understand the magnitude of sin. Every time that we sin, the Father is hurt. He wants His children mature to the point where we stop ourselves from sinning. After all, this is what salvation is about. To stop sin and to save us from our sins through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.

Some will unhesitatingly say, “You do not understand.” I understand more than you will ever know. When you have been trapped in the web of Secret Sexual Sins of porn and masturbation for 33 years, I know all too well the excuse and excuses to continue in sin, but the Lord Jesus knows all too well beyond me. He was made to be sin for us, who knew no sin that we might be made the righteousness of God in Christ. For we do not have an High Priest who cannot be touched with the feelings of our weaknesses who was in all points tempted like as we are, yet, He never once sinned.

So the Lord sympathizes with you. Therefore, we can go boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

The first 10 chapters of the book of Romans is the most profound discourse on sin and the redemptive power of Christ. Paul understood the depths the Father went to redeem man. Romans uncovers the heart of the Father about sin unlike any other book ever written. It is clear that the Father wants us to understand the power of sin, and the power of redemption. The Father wants us to understand that the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Father wants us to understand that He demonstrated His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.

The most important thing that the Father wants us to understand that His hatred for sin is perfect and complete, otherwise, He would not have sent His Son to die. We must remember that Jesus became the “propitiation” or appeasement” of the Father’s righteousness and His demands as a just and holy God. Folks, this is the way it is. The Father demands that holiness be the required way of life for His creation. The Creator has this right because we owe our existence to Him.

Paul said this about Jesus, “by Him all things consist.”

Death is not supposed to be the reason why we are here today. God is life, but because of Adam’s transgression, it takes death to bring us life. The moment we understand this, we can understand that death is not just the cessation of life. Death is separation from the One who gives life. So, if we want life, we now have to go through His Son to get it. Then after we initially get eternal life, we now must purpose in our hearts never to sin again.

Some of you believe that it is impossible to stop sinning.

Well let me use an analogy that the Holy Spirit gave me.

What do you do when you are about to cross the street? You stop. What do you do when you are driving a vehicle and you approach a stop light or a stop sign? You stop. You’ve just proved that you can stop. So if you can stop and obey traffic signals, you can stop sinning. As I have said before in my previous blogs, the man at the pool of Bethesda and the woman caught in adultery were told by the Lord Jesus to “go and sin no more.”

This is a profound truth. That we can go and sin no more. That tells us that sin’s power can no longer lord itself over me and reduce me to a slave of sin. That’s what Romans 6 teaches us. For years, I avoided that chapter because I loved the pleasure of sin. But now, I love the pleasure of righteousness. I love to please the Father. Every day that I stay from porn and masturbation, I am, by the grace and power of God, living to please Him. We are not perfect, but we are striving towards perfection.

Every moment that I stay free is a moment that the strength to resist, withstand, holdout, gets stronger and stronger. To the point where you can identify sin coming a mile away. Also, you have a plan to overcome the instant sin is coming your way to destroy you. As many men of God have said, “if you do not have a plan, you plan to fail.”

Many brothers are turning their backs on what God told them to do. They have strayed into the minefield of Secret Sexual Sins. From porn and masturbation to out right prostitution, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, and bisexuality. The promise to “keep yourself pure” has been thrown away for a moment of orgasm. The power to procreate is very powerful. The lusts of the flesh, and eyes can easily overwhelm an individual. Temptation from the devil doesn’t make it easy. But the Lord made a way out for all of us. We must fight with courage to abstain and maintain our sanctification.

It took me a long time to figure this out but for you that may be young in the flesh and young in the Lord, you can stop the madness of sin and live victorious, Christian lives.

The power of sin can no longer tell you to sin. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. As long as I obey that law and tell my members what to do in righteousness, the freedom from the law of sin and death remains intact. The moment that I decide to suppress the Holy Spirit, suppress the Word of God to live a sanctified life, and turn my back on God, sin and death is mine.

But thank God that the Lord forgives us. Not to sin again and again, but to live righteously for the rest of our lives.

When you come to the Father, it is important to know that He loves us and He wants the best for us. Sin is never the best course. But we also have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the Righteous. Not to sin again that grace may abound, but to live free of the power and guilt of sin. Therefore, when you are tempted to watch porn, resist it. When you are tempted to masturbate, resist it. When you are tempted to fornicate. Resist it. When you are tempted to carry out homosexual acts. Resist it. When you are tempted to look lustfully upon a male or female. Resist it. When you are tempted, count it all joy when you fall into various trials and testings.

For the trying of your faith works patience. Therefore, let patience have its perfect work that you may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Finally, the people of God should never applaud sin. When a person admits their sin and not label it as a “mistake” we must remember that sin always hurts the heart of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

“And grieve not the Holy Spirit.” Paul said in Ephesians 4:30. Very few have understood the grieving of the Holy Spirit. It is similar to a father grieving over his child that turned away and go astray. Parents grieve when a child goes down a certain path. When we prodigal our lives, we bring shame and disgrace to the Father. But thank God that the Lord looks down the path to see if we would return. Such is the case with the Father. Without question, the Lord receives us and throws a party that we have returned from trying conditions brought about by sin.

We can prevent these moments of grief for the Lord. Permission to sin is never given. But the Lord is always ready to forgive and forget, the moment we repent.

10 Deadly Sins Of Leaders Involved In Secret Sexual Sins: Deliberate Avoidance Of Confrontation

So far, we’ve covered 5 of the 10 Deadly Sins Of Leaders Involved In Secret Sexual Sins.

#5. Pride and Arrogance.

#4. Failure To Take Heed.

#3. Compromise And Conviction.

#2. Candid Camera.

And the first one….

No Real Relationship With The Lord.

So here we are with #6, Deliberate Avoidance Of Confrontation.

In one way or another, we all avoid the place where a good spanking is coming for us. As kids growing up, we want to do our thing and get away with it. We know that sooner or later, it will catch up to us, and like clock work, the dinner bell of judgment comes.

The Lord confronted the sins of David by sending the prophet Nathan. The Lord Jesus met the woman at Jacob’s well. The Lord Jesus had a woman caught in the act of adultery brought to her. The Lord confronted Cain concerning the murder of Abel.

It is apparent that the discovery of a secret is the most feared aspect of Secret Sexual Sins.

Notice what the Lord Jesus said in John 3:19-21….

“And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

Notice what Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 5:4

“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.”

When Paul speaks of those that sleep at night and get drunk at night, and when the Lord said, men loved darkness rather than light,” it is a clear indication that concealment depicts secrecy.

When you want to commit sin, it’s the works of darkness that gives you the false sense of security that you can get away with it. But the reality is that works of darkness are done in the dark. It depicts the sinister nature of a person bent on sinning against the Lord. We must remember that the Psalmist in Psalm 139, said of the Lord that “the night and the day are both alike to You.”

In other words, God doesn’t care if you believe that you can hide under the cloak or cover of darkness. He can still see you. Sometimes, we act like He doesn’t see us.

Remember, sin is an act of defiance against the known will of God.

Now look at what Paul said in Ephesians 5:11-13…

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.”

The intent of light is to expose the secrets of darkness. Confrontation is designed to shed light on what we may be doing in secret so we could avoid more judgment. Confrontation is part of the “chastisement of the Lord” (see Hebrews 12:4-17). If the Lord didn’t love you, He wouldn’t bother to shed any of His light on what you are doing in secret. He would let you do what you do and still judge you, based on His righteousness.

When you are hiding something, you have no confidence before the Lord, and no confidence before men. However, we must never allow such confidence to take us over into the area of pride, and false humility. As Paul admonished, “Take heed, lest we fall.”

John, the beloved apostle of the Lamb said these words in 1 John 3:19-22…

“And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him. For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.”

When you do not have confidence, you hide. Just like Adam and Eve did when the Lord came to confront their sin.

The Lord already knew they had sin but as a loving Father, He was not going to let what they did go.

It must be confronted.

I thought that confrontation takes place when a person sits down with another individual to delve into their lives. Sort of like, spill your guts and tell me everything that is going on in you, and if I find anything, I will lay you out. In other places, this may not be the case where consent is given. However, when it comes to discovery, sometimes, this doesn’t work because of fear. Even when there is nothing at all to discover, the fear is sometimes too much to overcome.

This kind of discovery tactic intimidates everyone. Little do we realize that this is the fear of God at work. Besides, God is more interested in the heart coming to Him than sitting down and digging up a person’s hidden secrets. Do not get me wrong. The Lord will resort to this when your sins are blatant and you show no serious indication that you will relent. When it comes to an individual bent on sexually sinning anyway, sometimes, truthfulness and honesty is a fleeting thing.

Some men and women are great liars. That’s what hypocrites do so well. They play the part of another so convincingly that to detect who they really are is almost impossible. However, it doesn’t matter what role you play before the Lord because He is God. He is omniscient. Even when the Lord confronted Cain, Cain was determined to kill Abel no matter what God said.

Cain was already in the depraved indifference state of mind. In other words, he didn’t care that the Lord said something to him. That’s the way it was with me. I didn’t care about what the Lord said. My sin was more important than the Word of God. My sin was more important than my relationship with God. My sin was more important than my love for my wife and daughter.

Sin’s acronym is Selfish Individual Needs. 

This is not the way that every person should order their lives. To attempt to pattern after something that may not work for you, only invites future shipwrecks. However, in living before God, we are to walk “blameless unto the coming of the Lord.”

The key phrase is the coming of the Lord.”

It is clear that everyone will not be ready at the coming of the Lord. The point of blameless is to be ready when He comes. Blameless is the only position of readiness. You cannot commit sin and be ready for the coming of the Lord. When the Lord confronts you about any sin, it is so that you would enter into repentance, receive forgiveness, and from that point, learn to walk blameless before the Lord.

I often thought….what would happen if I am watching porn and masturbating. Would the Lord accept me into His kingdom? Am I walking blameless? Am I walking in the light as He is in the light? Am I in fellowship with the Father through His Son, the Lord Jesus? Am I like the five wise virgins or am I like the five foolish virgins?

When it comes to confrontation, it may come in many forms. The Lord would send people in your path to distract you from making provision to fulfill the lusts of the flesh. The Lord may have you switch, unknowingly, radio stations to hear an important message from Him. Confrontation comes is various ways, designed to keep us off balance.

Off balance in the sense that you do not know when confrontation will come. Unpredictability has the potential of keeping a person honest. Then again, unpredictability of confrontation is no incentive at all for some bent on not being blameless before the Lord. Nonetheless, confrontation is there to protect us from impending judgment. Especially when we are entertaining the thought to cross the line we said to ourselves that we wouldn’t dare cross.

Finally, in Dr. Mark Laaser’s book on Healing The Wounds Of Sexual Addiction, I believe he talked about a story about a married, father of children pastor that robbed banks to feed his sexual addiction habits of porn, masturbation, strip clubs, Internet porn, and prostitutes. At the end, he was tried and convicted of armed robbery and served time. He lost his pastorate, obviously, and he hurt his family and children. At the pinnacle of this were layers of neglect.

The intentional disregard for the confronting power of God to save him from this pinnacle event.

When we refuse to even consider that the Lord is speaking to us in His still small voice, a much distinguishing, loud, impossible to ignore voice speaks to us. It could be that when we are about to cross a line, the voice of the Lord comes when the police comes. The voice of the Lord comes when the judge imposes a sentence for an avoidable crime. The voice of the Lord comes loud and clear when an STD of an incurable nature comes.

Yes, the voice of the Lord comes in many ways but it is prudent to listen to the voice of the Lord when we are still tender in our hearts and minds. The Lord knows how to salvage the unsalvageable. The Lord knows how to redeem the unredeemable. The Lord knows how to take a broken life, pieces all over the place, and one by one, put our lives back together again.

When the confrontation comes, let’s not run, but let’s embrace it.

LGBT: SCOTUS Prop 8 Vote. The Most Important Decision Of The 21 Century

I do not think that the Body of Christ is aware of the ramifications of this all important vote.

The Supreme Court Of The United States (SCOTUS) will be set to hear oral arguments on Proposition 9 and certain provisions in DOMA. I just read an article about what took place in Canada when a man passed out flyers that shared about the Bible being against the sin of homosexuality. Two homosexual men were offended and took him to court. The brother in the Lord lost the case and was fined.

You can read the link here….http://christiannews.net/2013/02/28/canadian-supreme-court-rules-biblical-speech-opposing-homosexual-behavior-is-a-hate-crime/

A friend on FB posted this link and I believe that the Lord is warning the church in the United States of what is to come.

The Lord spoke to me about the election of 2012 that the election that took place paved the way for what is to come.

In the article above, I hope that you paid enough attention to note that should the Supreme Court strike Proposition 8 down as unconstitutional and strike down certain provisions of DOMA, the level of persecution of believers in Christ and pastors will exponentially rise to unprecedented levels in the US. In Canada, the courts have deemed preaching against the sin of homosexuality as hate speech.

This sets the precedence for persecution that would make the dark ages look like child’s play.

Free speech is about to be erased and we will be subjected to persecution. We must also understand that these are the last days. These are the days of Noah and Lot. We cannot be afraid of their faces. We must preach the truth regardless of the punitive damages the world imposes upon those who believe the Word of God.

It is interesting to note that oral arguments will begin one week before Passover.

The History Channel will show the miniseries called “The Bible” beginning 03/03/2013.

Oral arguments are set for March 26 and a decision by the SCOTUS should be reached by June 27.

Folks, this is no coincidence and the Lord was never caught off guard.

We must however, take note of the fact that since Canada is a dark place, the same darkness is making its way here in the United States.

As Jesus said, “The night comes when no man could work.”

Paul warned us in Romans 13:11-14.

“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lust.”

And this is exactly what the church in the United States has done. We are sleeping and this is the price.

When 50% of pastors struggle with porn. When 70% or more of professed believers struggle with porn. When 93% of African Americans voted to re-elect Barack Obama as POTUS. When 3% of the US population that is LGBT has a bigger influence on the immorality course of this nation than the morality influence of the church, it is clear that we are in serious trouble.

The devil doesn’t mind if we sing praise to God while we engage in sexual immorality. The devil doesn’t mind if we preach watered down sermons that has no conviction of the Holy Spirit. The devil doesn’t mind if we preachers with dog collars and miters on are Emotional Manipulators, Intellectual Manipulators, and Revelatory Manipulators. The devil doesn’t mind you having a “praise break.”

In fact, right in the middle of your praise break the devil is holding your hands and dancing right along with you.

The devil doesn’t mind so long as we never start living the truth before we preach the truth. In the church, you have many people that are quick to live in sin, curse God, and then turn around and praise God with you. You have many people that is attached to corporate organizations that fund the LGBT agenda. In more ways than you can shake a stick, the products that we purchase will have some connections to the money trail that fund sexual immorality. Just like the purchase of porn is a Seamless Connection to alcohol, drugs, prostitution, strip clubs, human trafficking, child porn and molestation, the simple purchase of certain items funds the agenda of LGBT and abortion.

The taxes that we pay, if the Lord could show the deep connections to worldwide immorality, we would cringe. However, somewhere down the line, we may only have had a hand in someone’s involvement in the sins of the world if we participated in purchasing sin. The disconnection that saves us is the fact that we have no direct connection to their sins, unless we did purchase porn or other sinful things.

The believer’s vulnerability is self inflicted and the devil took full advantage.

I say again, that the Lord was never surprised. He wasn’t surprised with Samson, Saul, or David in their sins.

So He is not surprised with ours today.

After reading of the imminent possibility that the 31 states that placed in their state constitution an amendment protecting marriage between one man and one woman is in jeopardy, that everyone knew that there was something up the sleeves of LGBT. The Spirit of God always warn me that something is going on. The thing that I haven’t been able to get is what is that thing that is going on that I don’t know about yet.

When it is just too quiet it is an indication that something is about to happen.

Well, the Bible tells us “When there is peace and safety, then comes sudden destruction.”

It is not a coincidence that around Passover, we are seeing these issues come to head. And for the most part, it is getting to the point that we are so comfortable being tied to the posts with our eyes out like Samson is too comfortable. It is dark outside and getting darker. We are reaching the apex or culmination of the end of the ages. The only thing that the Lord told us to do is to be ready.

Jesus said, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”

We do not know when the Lord will come, that is why we must stand and occupy until He comes. This is no time to pack our bags. This is the moment to stand in the face of opposition and speak the truth. We will not run. We will not hide. We will fight the good fight of faith and lay hold on eternal life. We will not buckle under the pressure of persecution. We will not look for the convenience and comfort, and safety of the inner sanctuary. What is to come must come and we must be prepared to stand for what is right.

Remember Revelation 21:8. Cowards have no place in the kingdom.

This is the valley of the shadow of death and we are to fear no evil, for He is with us.

Let’s stand and fight.
