The World Of False Apostles; Extortion Without A Baseball Bat

This has a lot to do with sexual immorality because if you could fall for false apostles, you can fall for everything false apostles are about, including sexual immorality. Though it may not be detected early in their ministry, just watch over time and you will see things emerge.

If an apostle can excuse the small sins, the big ones are very easy to excuse as well. As compromise sets in, it is only a matter of time before you will hear the justification of sin in the life of an exposed false apostle. When you see people excuse the sin of homosexuality and abortion, it is clear that you had better start making your way for the exit.

It is very easy these days to accept an indefensible position. However, it is not worth losing your eternal salvation. In fact, the gospel of inclusion has it’s roots in Calvinism. Once saved always saved by election is very similar to the doctrine of inclusion.

And the goal of inclusionism is to get the unsuspecting, carnal person to include sexual immorality, not just homosexuality, as an acceptable activity. That homosexuality is not a sin. It is a sexual orientation.

When you see Calvinism, you see inclusionism.

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.”

To the angel of the church of Ephesus write, These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars;

Whenever a person appears to be authoritative, they are attempting to be authentic.

In these two passages of Scripture, Revelation 2:1-2 and 2 Corinthians 11:13-14, we see that when the Lord Jesus left the earth, all of a sudden, everyone wants to be an apostle. Lately, we have seen many “new comers” to the work of an apostle.

A close friend of mine, Pastor Darren Butler of International Good News Fellowship in Hicksville, NY and I had a lengthy fruitful discussion about this. From this discussion that I had he shared something that is worth noting.

Function is more important than title.

Over the short years, we have seen that when a person desires to be legitimate and authentic, people will reach into areas where this could be achieved. The ill-advised pursuit of notoriety crept into church leadership simply because if you are “discovered,” you can get the great speaking engagements that others appear to be getting.

It’s never about getting souls into the kingdom and they will lie like a dog by the fireplace to make you think it’s about souls.

It’s about stardom, glamour, fame, and money.

We all should know that whenever the true manifests first, the false will follow. When the false manifests, the truth comes to refute it. We see this consistently in Scripture. Who was here before everything?

God.

Who showed up with sin?

The devil.

False always follow after the truth. That’s why the devil has to wait for truth to manifest so that he could bring an alternative or opposite.

So why do people want to follow the false instead of the real? The lie, instead of the truth?

You can make up your own rules. This is at the heart of all rebels. You are able to do what you want. Hence, the satanic verse of verses……“Do as thou wilt.”

The quest for authenticity apart from the truth is a pursuit that will always be unobtainable. Besides, authentic mean real. With a lie, you have to keep that lie going with another lie. That’s why Jesus said that the devil is a liar. He speaks from his own resources. There is no truth in him (see John 8:44).

With false apostles, it’s not about going out to establish new local churches. It’s not about raising leadership from within that new work. It is not about preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in places where He wasn’t preached. It’s about establishing their own personal kingdom. Additionally, another thing that is connected to false apostles is that they appear authoritative and powerful.

While some of them have great organizational skills, we see that is usually the backdrop for being able to help floundering pastors grow the work. This aspect is rather a necessary component of viable apostles. However, it is important to stay with the basic Biblical structure of an apostle.

We all know that an apostle mean sent one.

When a person says that they are an apostle, the question must be asked…..“Who sent you and where are you supposed to be.”

Pastor Butler shared this tremendous insight and called it region.”

Look at this Scripture…

John 6:38-39 says…..

“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.”

Notice Matthew 15:24…

But He answered and said, I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

And Matthew 4:12-17, notice the word “regions.”

Now when Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, He departed to Galilee. And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the regions of Zebulun and Naphtali, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, by the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles: The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned. From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

So here is the pattern.

Jesus was sent by the Father, not to do His own will, but the will of the Father. Jesus was sent to the lost sheep. Jesus went to the regions……

However, in the regions where Jesus was sent, something happened.

Jesus is obviously the Light of the Word, there is no dispute about that. What else took place? He preached repentance. Very few that claim to be apostles these days will stick to the basic gospel message, let alone, the basic framework of the call to be an apostle.

These are the three significant things that lack in modern day people that call themselves apostles.

1. Who sent you or did you go yourself?

2. Are you doing the will of the One Who sent you or are you doing your own thing?

3. To what area or “region were you sent?

Many of them will claim all of the above and they should just to save face. However, Jesus said, “You will know them by their fruit.”

Just watch them and watch what they do.

Another thing that is happening is that we are seeing a consistent crop of females enter into the place of the apostle.

We must understand that the Lord used 12 male apostles. It must be understood that God predominantly uses men to preach the gospel and to lead in the church. In the family nucleus, the husband is the one that binds the house together. In Paul’s letter to Timothy, we see that it was specifically written to males. There is no feminine qualifications for women in ministry. It doesn’t mean that the Lord has excluded women from ministry. It means that the Lord predominantly issues the call to males to assume leadership positions in the ministry.

God used women tremendously in certain places of the Bible, but the Lord’s consistent pattern has always been and His preference is clearly noted that He wants a man to lead. There are places where male leadership must yield to ministering to women. Males know nothing about what goes on in womanhood just like women know nothing about what goes on in manhood.

Just like a man is uncomfortable talking to a female pastor about being impotent, a woman is uncomfortable about talking to a male pastor about feminine issues.

Are you hearing me?

Therefore, it is important to yield whenever possible, to the gender that has knowledge in these areas.

However 1 Corinthians11:3 is there for a reason.

Please note that Paul did not say that the head of every woman is man. He said the head of woman is man. Therefore, Paul here, is speaking of married women. The order for the house is God, Christ, man, woman. That’s the order. And we see that predominantly and preferably, man is to lead in the church. And again, this is not exclusive. Women leading in ministry is an exception when it is called by God.

If they aren’t called, just like when a man isn’t called, the fruit will not manifest and it’s an intrusion or false work.

I have no problem if a woman claims to be called to any of the areas of ministry, however, the test for them is the same. They have to be sent by God. They have to be found doing the will of the Father and not their own thing, and they have to be sent to a region. You will know them by their fruit.

The gift of gab and emotional energy is not proof of any call of God on a person’s life.

Everyone can talk about taking Michael Jordan, but until you get on the court with him, talk is cheap. So it is in ministry. If your calling cannot produce the fruit, then the ministry is suspect. Busy preaching in established works is not considered apostolic work. You must be able to preach the gospel. Win folk to the Lord, raise up leadership, and start the process all over again in another region as you are directed and sent by the Lord.

Why is it so hard to follow this established pattern? Starting a work from the ground up, is hard work.

These days, the chief apostles have it easy. They go into other works that are already established and pick up a paycheck for all their expenses, depleting the local church of resources needed to cover their costs. These modern day false apostles pick the weak, low productivity churches, and they know that the young, inexperienced pastor desires to be a big time pastor and preacher.

Develop a relationship with them. All the while stringing them along. Every time these super apostles show up, they plunder them. What is offered in return is a chance to probably preach with them. Sit and receive some deep counsel and that’s about it. You’re fulfilling their dream. You chase after theirs while leaving your dream to waste away. All the while, your dream is left unfulfilled. You come to their conventions with big offerings and they are able to meet their needs, but you are left with nothing, and you preach heavy tithing messages to your small congregation to impress the chief apostle the next time you see him or her. You manipulate and coerce the people to give more. You badger them and make them give what some don’t have.

And that’s another thing. Since when did chief apostle become a title? There is only one Chief Apostle and it is not you. It’s Jesus.

You try to prove your worthiness to the chief apostle with a big offering every year.

Sooner or later, you will wake up and see what this is really all about.

Then for title purposes, you start calling yourself an apostle. You get all these credentials. Educational and ordination credentials. You desire to feel important and worthy of some some respect.

For what?

All the while, things are left undone.

Many of you are wondering what a real apostle looks like. You see the TV, DVD’s, and you go to these conferences, and you watch them work. You call it God. Not realizing you are being bamboozled. You get into more debt by giving in to their money demands. Extortion without a baseball bat. False apostles say great swelling words to work you into an emotional hissy fit. You are looking to be blessed by giving away your life savings.

You give it all away and they come and repo your car, foreclose on your home, garnish your check, while Ms. and Mr., Dr. Apostle is able to drive their Bentley right by your house.

There are real apostles out there that you will never see, nor know their names. The real ones that are called will never ask for anything. They will work with their own hands even though they are entitled to compensation. The people they minister to are not known but they are able to meet their needs as the real preachers simply preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The regions these apostles are sent to, have no medical facility but the Great Physician, Jesus, is there moving in their midst to save their sin sick soul and heal their physical diseases.

These apostles move from region to region because of the love of God to preach against sin, minister to their needs, and watch God do things that big city store front preachers like me know nothing about.

Yet, there are a lot of big city, store front preachers that call themselves apostles that claim to be sent to do nothing but look important, have armor bearers chase after them to carry their Bibles, shine their shoes, carry their robes and escort them to their car.

It is time to try them and find them to either be apostles or not. So far, we haven’t tried them and they are able to get away with having a title without function. No wonder we are ineffective. And then you have these people support LGBT positions and abortion.

Outrageous!

Enemies of the cross of Christ that fill their own bellies.

Plundering wonders that unhesitatingly rape and monetarily molest the saints during an emotional hissy fit.

Right on cue to take advantage.

You would do well to heed the message of the late David Wilkerson.

RUN!!!!! Run from these false apostles and preachers that pretend to be something but they are found to be false apostles!!!

NEWSFLASH!!! Homosexuals Are Not Going To Hell. Silly Me…..

In a stunning presentation, two false teachers are now taking it upon themselves to tell the whole world that God was all wrong about hell. Especially homosexuals going to hell.

Let’s be clear that articulated in the Bible and by the Lord using Pastor DL Foster’s blog, that classification of sin is not what will take you to hell. Classification of your spiritual nature does. There are two classifications. Righteous and Unrighteous. You can only be made right by accepting the provision of salvation through Jesus Christ. It is by grace are you saved, through faith…salvation is a gift, called grace or unmerited favor given freely by God, and made possible by, and at the expense of Jesus’ life, death, burial, and resurrection, (see Ephesians 2:8-9.)

At this point, there are two spiritual parents. The Heavenly Father and the father of lies called the devil (see John 8:44).

But here is how you can guarantee yourself a one way ticket to hell. Defy the Word of God. Defy the God of salvation. Refuse to accept the provision of salvation of Jesus Christ. And to deceive others that God was not serious about hell is contempt of God and His word. Deceiving others into continuing in sin that grace may abound (see Romans 6:1) is disheartening but expected for the times.

Never mind what God said in His Word.

What I believe takes precedence over what the Word says is what these two false teachers erroneously purport.

I VEHEMENTLY REBUKE THEM AND THEIR STATEMENTS, AND I COMMAND THEM TO REPENT, IN JESUS’ NAME!

These and other false preachers are leading the way to a place where its destruction are never satisfied (see Proverbs 27:20).

The Lord used Pastor DL Foster to put out a blog in 2010 to warn us of the transition of preachers from the truth of the gospel to lies. When you begin to see once powerful men and women of God depart from the truth of the Word, and believers gullibly suck in their perversion, it is an indication, a sign to you, that you need to depart from them NOW!

But first, I want to share two things.

The blog from GCMWatch which powerfully sounds the alarm. http://www.gcmwatch.com/4718/george-bloomer-jet-heaven-and-homosexuals

A follow up blog may be coming. Should it become available, and there is no doubt about it, we will post the link to GCMWatch on this blog.

Our goal is to fully inform the Body of Christ that false prophets for profits are among the sheep and sadly, many will not depart. Many will end up in the place where these false prophets will end up.

Here is the YouTube show with Cindy Trimm and George Bloomer.

Pastor DL Foster posted this link on FB and we are outraged!

Take a look at this madness and then come back to finish reading this blog.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=D8SmiXV-WIM

Cindy Trimm and George Bloomer, THOU ART MAD!!!!!

IF YOU ARE NOT OUTRAGED, you are poisoned with their poison. You are sick and you are about to die. If you haven’t died already.

If you knew what you were eating, people today wouldn’t care.

Why?

If it tastes good, why should I know?

But anything that tastes good, is not a good thing when after the taste, your body rejects it by way of vomiting.

Vomiting is a violent reaction to save the body from further catastrophe.

When the body doesn’t agree with what tasted good, the body knows better. To avoid sickness, it violently reverses the process.

Your tastes buds may have been fooled but your brain knows when something is going to put your body down. And the body reverses the decision of “taste” to save itself from sickness. The sickness of vomiting saves the body from death. Sometimes, this process is too late. Once inside, the body may or may not acclimate. Or the disease embedded in the food is too powerful to reverse and severe sickness may lead to death.

Sadly, many in the body of Christ will not reverse the process and die of spiritual food poisoning. Or they may suffer such severe poisoning that any attempt to reason with them to take the medicine of the Word will be rebuffed. Sometimes, you cannot talk people out of mass suicide. Much less, you can’t talk high profile preachers and leaders out of altering their perilous course that is leading many along to the place of destruction.

The poison in them is extremely toxic.

And any preacher that does not get delivered from it, they will follow them.

It is sad.

You watch many preachers follow them and do or desire to do the same thing they are doing. They want to be famous just like them and they look to be on TV, speak before great crowds. Sleep in the fanciest hotels. Earn money they never seen before. And the world will give them everything they want. Including prostitutes, drugs, alcohol, and anything they desire.

So long as they lie and preach anything other than repentance and the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

Away from me with these things.

The preachers today are feeding the church lies from the devil. It tastes so good. Yet, the body refuses to reverse the process. And even if it did, like dogs, believers will turn back to their vomit and say, this tastes better than the first time and lap up everything that came out.

Paul said, “Come Out From Among Them And Be Separate, says the Lord.”

This is a series we are doing at Prevailing Word Ministries.

First, Paul warned of this when he asked for the elders at Ephesus to come to Miletus for a “Leadership Conference.”

In Acts 20, Paul warned them that….

“For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.”

As a note, most leadership conferences that you may be attending are off message. They do not talk about the BIG SIGN ON THE FREE WAY.

THE DAYS OF NOAH AND LOT.

The high profile preachers are driving the church away from the truth of the Word of God and have established themselves as the voice of “reason.” With such crafty deception and hypocrisy (see Ephesians 4:14), many are following their slick sick words to the pit of hell.

Many believers are sitting there in their services and they are not saying one word because they do not know the God of the Bible, much less the Bible. They are so emotionally attached and spiritually detached from God that it will take real concerted prayer to jar them from the gummy death grip of a toothless enemy.

They are so emotionally gullible that they cannot discern good from evil (Hebrews 5:12-14).

First, sinners will go to hell. Read Matthew 12:4. They greatly err when they said that the Lord will not cast them into hell. Read that verse again. When a person refuses to refute Scripture with Scripture, it’s because Scripture never refutes Scripture. That’s the whole purpose of the Word. To tell you what God said. They never opened their Bible. They became whatever Bible they wanted to become.

And even if they did open the Bible, their uncorroborated interpretation will violate the rules of Biblical Hermeneutics. And that’s how people open themselves up to such deception. They accept the devil’s suggestion…..“Yea, hath God said?”

And so the question comes into your mind to question God and question what God said.

The very same thing that the devil used against Adam and Eve that started the mess we are in today. And when people say that the Bible didn’t say that, you better show me in the Bible because if you do not come correct, you better prepare for a return salvo.

I will blow your spot up.

Acts 17:11 was put there for a reason. They better thank God that I or any of my FB colleagues were not in that audience. Somebody that had the Word didn’t not cry out. Their presence endorsed and affirmed their lies. That is called “guilt by association” or “association by default.”

This is the time that we cannot be timid according to Revelation 21:8. The cowards of our times are before the people. They do not stand when they need to stand on the Word. As a result, very few will sound the alarm and be outraged. Instead they will be cowards. And cowards will be sent to the lake which burns with fire and brimstone. The same substance that was used when God poured His wrath from heaven down on those that persisted in vile passions and utter perversion.

Note Matthew 7:21-23….

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

The sin of homosexuality is in a class of sin by itself. It is the highest form of perversion. The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, as Pastor DL Foster pointed out in one of his blogs (paraphrasing) is the highest measure of dissatisfaction and vehement attitude against this vile passion. The destruction of the raining down from heaven on those that practiced the sin of homosexuality should be a disturbing wake up call not to sin this sin.

For Cindy Trimm and George Bloomer, professing to be wise they became fools (morons see Romans 1:22 and the base Greek word for “fools”), to say or even suggest a deflection by pointing out the sin of fornication, is folly of the highest order. The rule of hermeneutics is violated because they failed to study the part in light of the whole context of the counsel of God.

By using eloquence and stature, they deceive the people that are gullible to their poison.

If what they are saying does not reflect the presence of the HOLY GOD, you need to make a decision and COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE SEPARATE SAYS THE LORD!

Why? Why are they doing this? This leads me to believe that when you are advocating a change in the approach of God in the Scriptures, Secret Sexual Sins is in the mix.

If God can appear to excuse the highest form of Sexual Sins, then when I commit Sexual Sins, it’s not a sin at all. It is to be excused because they believe that the sin of homosexuality is not a sin at all.

So this gives me permission to act out.

And evidence of this is when they said that homosexual musicians and singers brings us into the presence of the Lord unlike any other group of people.

They are so anointed.

Well, the once but no more “anointed cherub” (see Ezekiel 28:11-17) is where they get their anointing and we end up, by listening to their songs, just as “anointed” to sin the sins they are trapped in.

Get rid of those songs and COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE SEPARATE SAYS THE LORD.

If they are connected to homosexuality and never denounce their sins and the sin of homosexuality, you are listening to the songs of demons, AND IT IS PART OF THE DOCTRINE OF DEVILS AND SEDUCING SPIRITS (see 1 Timothy 4:1), and you are not worshipping God (see Amos 5:23-24). You are worshipping the god of this world, which is exactly what the devil was seeking for on day one of his despicable rebellion.

Some of you think that you are worshipping God but worship is prayer and if you harbor sin while you are praying, your worship is not accepted (see Psalm 66:18 and John 4:24).

Second, 1 Corinthians 6:9, “Be not deceived,” they will not inherit the kingdom of God or the kingdom of heaven. Do not let them fool you into thinking that by differentiating between the two (the kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of God) that homosexuals or any sinning person will get in.

Third, they attempted to use humanism to justify sinful behavior.

The old lie of “God created me this way.”

God created you “male and female.”

When you wake up in the morning, before you take a bath, look at you naked. Your equipment tells you the gender God created you with. He’s given you enough sense to tell you that certain parts fit. And the anatomy of man is not for males. And the anatomy of the female is not for another female. Certain parts do not fit (see Romans 1:26-27).

Within the “one flesh” principle, marriage is between one male and one female according to Genesis 2:24. The devil, through the murderous act and fall of disobedience by Adam and Eve, perverted sex. Yet, even in man’s perversion, we have enough sense to realize that the only safe sex is between one male and one female in holy matrimony. Unsafe sex is adultery, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, and bisexuality. Never mind condoms.

And God didn’t change, nor did He change His mind, as some people that are so perverted want you to believe (see Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 6:13-18, and James 1:17).

The only way to protect yourself is to obey the Word of God.

Your deliberate, intentional disobedience, a direct defiance of God, will be judged.

There is no way around this because your death is proof of what is to come (see Hebrews 9:27).

Now, James 3:1 stands against them and James 4:4 stands against them. And when you are found in agreement with the world, you are an enemy of God. In this age of apostasy, it is clear that when you depart from the truth, you have departed from the Word.

After looking and reading the evidence, Cindy Trimm and George Bloomer are in grave error and they are leading many along with them to the death march of hell.

It is indicative of the fact that if you follow them in their folly, you are certain to be judged with them accordingly.

The “Chick Fil A” Incident; The Gospel According To Chicken

Could it be that God is using a chicken to teach man, in particular, perverted, unregenerate man the gospel? The gospel of creation?

For those of you that know already, the leadership of Chick Fil A took and made a vocal stand against same sex marriage.

In the blink of an eye, LGBTQ sent messages out that they would “boycott” (a well documented Civil Rights tactic) the establishment in an failed attempt to send fear in the world.

In particular to Christians.

Quite the contrary is occurring.

McDonalds and KFC is joining Chick Fil A in supporting their stand against same sex marriage. Usually, the opposite occurs. Most establishments would have capitulated under the political incorrectness stress and pressure of LGBTQ.

But we are seeing the trend reverse.

First, I believe it’s because these establishments are reading the numbers that LGBTQ is a very small minority with a very big lying demonic spirit, mouthing off lies and deception to make it seem as if they are bigger than they are. And that they make it seem like they have teeth, every time they act like they want to bite.

It’s hard to bite when all you have is gums.

But as a roaring lion, the devil’s teeth was pulled at Calvary and Jesus triumphed over death and darkness under the earth for three days and three nights, was raised from the dead, and Jesus is seated at the right hand of the throne of His Majesty in heaven.

Second, the food establishment knows that even if there were to be a boycott by LGBTQ, their money wouldn’t be missed. For Chick Fil A and other supporting establishments, it’s not a calculated risk. And these supporting establishments could and should anticipate residual revenue should Chick Fil A be overwhelmed with people coming on August 1.

And a word for the Mayor of Chicago, you are going to see revenue and residual revenue.

And just know that it came from God.

Will you repent and turn your life over to Christ as a result? Only God knows.

It is a bold statement to let LGBTQ know that it is not running the show like they used to and they know it.

Like toddlers and adolescents, standby for their immature temper tantrums.

As Paul said in Romans 5:20b-21,

“But where sin abounded, grace does much more abound, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Isn’t it a shame that LGBTQ hijacked Civil Rights from the African Americans? And sadly, it’s reprehensible that high ranking Civil Rights Leaders that marched in these non violent protests in the past have hopped in bed with LGBTQ.

But thank God that there are independent thinking African American pastors that see the lie for what it is and we refuse to toe their perverted line to swallow the poisonous lies of sin based on deception. Give us the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ over sexual perversion any day.

We must also understand that it’s not just about the sin of homosexuality.

It’s sexual perversion of any kind. Adultery, fornication, bisexuality, bestiality, porn, self gratification, commonly called masturbation.

And if you are a pastor that has yet to speak against sexual immorality, it is clear that you need to get off the sidelines and speak against the sexual sins of our times.

Provided that you are not a hypocrite in the pulpit.

Your silence is deafening.

In fact, if you remain silent, your silence may be deemed by others as permission to engage in Secret Sexual Sins.

You are to speak up against all sin, including the sin of homosexuality. If not, you are party with the LGBTQ agenda and James 4:4 is the authority Scripture that determines your traitor/enemy of God status.

Stop hiding, avoiding the issue, and come out, and speak boldly against the sinful spirit of homosexuality, and all sexual immorality of our times.

Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:4

“In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of the that believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of the glory of Christ, Who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

The devil has blinded them to accept these lies and deceptions.

Sin and race are two different issues.

To mingle the two is deception.

In addition to boycotting, they allegedly sent the word to same sex partners to show up and also perform modest lewd acts in front of some of these establishments in retaliation.

We are now seeing that as a result of Mike Huckabee’s FB page to support Chick Fil A on Wednesday, August 1, 2012, is one of many solutions to counter the LGBTQ agenda.

Believers in Christ, all across the United States are leading the effort to support our fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord.

First, we must understand that God desires all men to saved and come to the knowledge of the truth,” according to 1 Timothy 2:4.

We know that not everyone that serve behind the counters of Chick Fil A and those around that may see a surge of believers come to some of these places that they may not know the Lord. That’s where the church, with it’s bold witness must uphold the standards of the Word of God and share the gospel when the opportunity arises. We must give an answer of the reason of the hope that abides in us.

Actually, Peter, by the Holy Spirit said it like this.

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed. For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.”

Gleaning from portions of Romans 12, Paul reminds us….

“Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good…Bless those that persecute you; bless and do not curse…Do not be wise in you own opinion….Repay no one evil for evil…Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.” says the Lord. Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Go and have a good time before the Lord.

The world might be seeing a great display of camaraderie. While the numbers are encouraging, what’s important is we provide the world the kind of representation that glorifies the Lord.

The devil is prepared to incite, bait, and resort to things to lure us to drop our guard. But we need not fear what they will do. Perhaps, there may not even be an incident, which would be good because a peaceful assembly to enjoy some good chicken would be a great thing.

Remember, the devil is a liar. And his children may not like the truth but this is what the church is supposed to be and do.

We are “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

We are to speak the truth in love.”

We are to “walk in truth.”

One more thing.

Isn’t it powerful that when God created the animals on the earth that they were made male and female, and He commanded them to be fruitful and multiply? Isn’t it powerful that when Adam searched for someone compatible that none was found? But Adam took note that the animals paired off, male and female, and they had each other. But Adam was all alone. That is he had no one of his kind to share life with.

Remember, God is Spirit according to John 4:24.

Man was created in the image of God, spirit and soul, both of which are eternal, and he was placed in a physical container. And the Lord God said, “It is not good for Adam to be alone.”

It is evident that Adam wanted a female and the Lord provided a woman. Suitable for his needs. Man wasn’t created for woman, woman was created for man. God was careful enough to make someone completely opposite, yet, compatible. There was no confusion about what Adam needed. Suddenly, Adam was put to sleep and when He woke up, God brought a beautiful woman to him.

Bone of my bone flesh of my flesh.

She shall be called Woman…named Eve….mother of all living.

The animals serve as a reminder that God knew exactly what He was doing.

The chicken, on creative instinct, knew to find opposites of each other to have more chicken. If God created male chicken and male chicken, there would be no chicken and Chick Fil A, and all other chicken establishments would not be in business. Perhaps breakfast, lunch, and dinner would be chicken-less had God decided to create male and male chicken.

No eggs for breakfast or brunch. No chicken fillet sandwiches. No grilled chicken. No gospel bird. No chicken parm. No potato salad. You gotta have eggs for potato salad.

Two male chickens after the fall of Adam, would have been the only chicken sandwich in history. And we could only imagine what chicken taste like.

Hence, the same principle applies if God created only two males or two females.

No humans.

Perhaps God is speaking through chicken that animals have more sense than perverted humans.

I intend to be at one of the Chick Fil A establishments. I’ve asked members of Prevailing Word to join me, my wife and daughter. We intend to stand and be a witness. For what the Lord Jesus did for us over 2000 years ago, it’s the least we could do.

I encourage you to be salt and light for the Lord Jesus.

Overcoming Sexual Temptation, Part 1

Temptation.

The Garden of Pleasure is where temptation and failure became the way of all man until we are born again by the Holy Spirit. And even after a person is born again, it doesn’t mean that temptation has ended. What it means is that the power to resist temptation is now in you. The fallen nature of man must die and we must be changed from within by the Holy Spirit.

The fallen nature’s desire to examine, pursuit, capture, and consume is what makes falling into sin from being tempted possible. Possible to fall into or possible to escape it.

The excitement of enticement. The tease. The desire to go deeper into someone or something. Every person is smitten with temptation.

However, we do not have to fall into temptation.

Temptation is not sin. To be tempted is just enticement or baiting. If you do not take the bait, you cannot sin.

It is when we cast off restraint and cross the line of discipline to not touch whatever, that we fall into sin.

James said count it all joy when you “fall into temptation.”

If your life wasn’t of value to discredit Jesus, you wouldn’t be tempted. There are some forms of temptation that are so blatant that if you are not careful, you will stop thinking about the cost and engage to sin.

Men are sight stimulated. What we see is what our mind locks on and we burn that image in our souls to consume it mentally until you have to touch it.

The full satisfaction is after you have touched what you’ve watched.

Proverbs 27:20 says,

“Hell and destruction are never full, so the eyes of man are never satisfied.”

Dangle something that a person likes and it won’t be long before the desire to consume it comes.

Low cleavage, body hugging above the knees dress. Hair up or down, preferably sexy down. You’ve seen it before and that is desirable to see all of the time. Now the desire to see it again and again is programed into your repetitive thinking process.

Unless she is your wife, you are already in pursuit in your mind to check it ALL out as she gets closer and closer. Your heart races and your mind goes into several transitions until mind and body ultimately transitions into “I must touch it. I must have it. I must consume it.”

We all know how this works but let’s examine it in relative detail.

All things have a point of origin or beginning point. When it comes to temptation of the sexual nature, we can only be tempted based on our desires. If there is no desire, there can be no reference point for preference. Whatever our desire is, that’s where our preference is, and that is the area where the enemy will tempt us (see Hebrews 12:1).

If something is repulsive to us, chances are, unless lines are crossed to escalate unexplored regions of sex acts to obtain the unobtainable carrot of sexual satisfaction, we will not engage.

Look at what the Bible says about temptation from the book of James chapter one and verses 14 and 15.

“But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full- grown, brings forth death.”

For clarity, the Amplified Bible gives this rendition.

But every person is tempted when he is drawn away, enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust, passions). Then the evil desire, when it has conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is fully matured, brings forth death.”

When James says “…but every person,” no one escapes temptation.

In order for you to be tempted you have to be drawn away.”

How are we drawn away?

Notice…“enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust, passions).

You see lust never seeks you. Lust is already in there unless it is dealt a death blow (see Colossians 3:5).

Romans chapter 7 is the tell all of how sin in the flesh operates.

In all of us, there is a preference for the kinds of sin that brings evil pleasure to our minds and bodies. However, these evil passions and desires must have conception in order to produce only one thing.

DEATH.

But let’s go back a bit.

What is it that is in your mind and flesh that you know that you would easily fall prey to? Just like fish or any predator. When you see something that is appealing to you, you will pursue it until you’ve captured it for consumption. Like all evil temptation, there is always a hook at the end of the bait.

It’s the same with humans. Same sex attractions, opposite sex attractions or attractions for both.

The definition for lust is longing for that which is forbidden.”

When you are told that you cannot have a certain thing, sometimes it can add to the pursuit. The inquisitive pursuit.

A sort of curiosity that seeks out what it would be like to have it that way. It’s the same with sex. When a woman or a man walks by, your mind is inquisitive about what is not seen. What is seen is the appealing process that triggers the desire to further examine. Then it reengages into another mode. The conception process is figuring out how to get it and consume it.

According to Matthew 5:27-28, you already crossed the line in imagining what you will do when you get her or him. The lines one declares that it will not cross is just a speed bump. You will slow down but you will eventually cross it.

It is just a matter of time.

How do we overcome temptation?

We must look at the life of the Lord Jesus to answer this question. By looking at how He was able to resist the devil is textbook child of God living.

LGBT & Gay Christians: Why Inclusion Is Important To Gays

When the traditional churches searched for ways to renounce the Biblical stand against homosexuality, it was an opportunity for homosexuals to openly practice sin while attending and participating in church.

There is a reason which we will explore in a moment.

The stigmatization of being a homosexual and the shame of this sin appeared to have lifted. Many people in the church view homosexuality as a sexual orientation, and not a sin. It is to be understood that for years, homosexuals had to keep quite about their sin.

Hence, the term, the closet.”

Make no mistake about it, homosexuality according to the Bible is sin. Just like cheating on your wife is a sin. Just like lying is a sin. Just like fornication is a sin. To exempt or exclude homosexuality and lesbianism is just slight of hand.

Then why is inclusion so important to gays?

For years, the church failed to address this issue in line with the Bible because a wide range of issues were already before the church and pastors.

Issues such as, heterosexuals shacking up outside of marriage. This is a polite term for two persons living together in fornication. A more colorful term would be “playing house.”

Issues such as….male pastors engaged in homosexuality, bisexuality, “sleeping with Sister Susie Q and Brother man at the same time.”

A wide range of promiscuous predator pastors would sexually take advantage of women, regardless of a woman’s emotional state. Because he had a lustful eye and heart, it was just another day at the office.  Thousands of women’s lives would be destroyed because a pastor couldn’t remain faithful to his wife because he was a wanderer.

According to the powerful book, Betrayal Of Trust, pastors would fit the profile of either a predator or a wanderer.

On the other hand, according to Proverbs chapter 7, a wide range of immoral women would come to church just to “test” the waters to see if a pastor would take them on. These immoral women would wreck homes. End up pregnant and either have the love child” to force the pastor to walk away from his wife, or have an abortion, and walk away in shame and disgrace.

Some might never darken the doorstep of a church again.

Music ministers would fornicate or engage in homosexuality, or bisexuality. With regularity, women in the church choir would be their victims or young boys would be molested. Music ministers would also be involved with porn and self gratification.

These uncontested issues left the church in a precarious situation.

The precarious situation is the fact that if the church is in sin, the all sin is permitted. If sin is already in the church, then the sin of homosexuality is permitted too. Therefore, I am allowed to sit at the table.

Inclusion without confrontation seemed like the best compromise.

What this means is that “everybody is saved. Come right on in.”

No need to renounce sin. No need to confront sin. No need to repent. No need to say the sinner’s prayer because we are not sinners anymore. Everyone is a brother and everyone is a sister. And if you want to be bisexual or if you are transgender through surgical and hormonal procedures, it’s alright. All are welcome because we are all God’s children.

In a nut shell, because Jesus died for everyone, no one has a right to exclude anyone because Jesus loved us all. You are automatically recognized as a believer. You believe in Jesus, right?

Well, come right in. You are a brother and sister in Christ.

As a side note about sister lesbians…

According to P4CM (Passion For Christ Ministries), in an interview, a former lesbian revealed the rules of lesbianism. Both women cannot be women. One has to play the male role.

The male role is called a “beard.”

Short haircut and male clothes, with strong male cologne, Or feminine cologne that has a strong masculine scent. In most union ceremonies, both cannot come in wearing a wedding dress.

I’m not trying to be funny. I’m just stating facts.

My good friend, Elder Raymond King of Securing Hope Ministry has a picture of two black men posing for their wedding picture. One is dressed in a regular tuxedo. The other homosexual who was much shorter, was in a semi tuxedo with a train like on a wedding gown.

Inclusion is important because there is no stigmatization, no sin, no shame, no remorse for two reasons…..

1. Remove harmful language including what the Bible says.

Inclusion is permitted because the “harmful language” of the Bible no longer exists. And because you are included, there is no reason for a loving God to send you to hell. You are not condemned. You are all God’s children. You are completely forgiven.

This is a lie.

When something is not declared a sin, there is no need to be forgiven for anything. It’s only when sin is pronounced that there is a need to ask for forgiveness. But because homosexuals are included, there is no need to be forgiven. Why? Because homosexuality is not a sin.

There is a major problem with this….

The God of the Bible never changed up.

And when a person is told that they are wrong based on the established Word of God, just because you disagree with the Word of God, it doesn’t mean certain passages of the Scripture automatically disappear or are rendered null and void.

2. All mankind are brothers and sisters in Christ because God loved us.

God demonstrated His love in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. To be a brother or sister in Christ, you must renounce the very thing that Jesus died for. The problem with inclusion without true renunciation and true repentance is that all they want is Jesus’ love. Just leave what I do in the bedroom, or in whatever room, off the table.

It’s none of anyone’s business. Including God.

Sadly mistaken.

The business of forgiving our sins begins at the cross of Christ. It ends on a sinner’s bended knees to the Lordship of Jesus, in total submission to the will of God to relinquish the life of sin.

This love is always there for all people, however, Jesus just didn’t come to spread His love and we just leave it at that. Jesus came to die for our sins and God raised Jesus from the dead so that we can have eternal life. Eternal life is not just about living eternally or living forever. It is about living as God created us to live eternally. Living like God is living according to His characteristics.

God is holy. So incorporating His consistent characteristic, which is done by accepting Jesus as Lord, and adhering to His living Word, allows a person to live eternally.

The only way to get into the kingdom is by being born again.

Two things happened at the death of Jesus.

First, sin was placed on Jesus and God condemned sin in the flesh of Jesus.

Second, the ordinance of death that condemned every man was removed, however, man must agree to the terms of redemption and be reconciled to God.

In condemning sin in the flesh of Jesus, the power to hold man to commit sin and the guilt (the awareness that you are guilty) of sin was removed. This is called justification. God knowing that you deserve death, released you from the penalty because Jesus took your place. However, you must relinquish the will to continue in sin.

You cannot agree to commit the very thing He sent His Son to release you from. It doesn’t make sense to tell you that you are free to go after you’ve murdered somebody just to go out and continue to murder.

The new birth gives us the power to rule over our lives never to commit sin, the very thing that Jesus came to set us free from.

Inclusion is just another crafty word that gives you permission to call yourself a believer without conforming your life to the Lord Jesus Christ according to the Word of God. A true believer lives a changed, transformed life without needing to sin ever again.

Inclusion allows for sin to be committed without being transformed into the Person of Jesus Christ. In other words, one is permitted to live any way they want to live.

Because the church lived in some measure of “inclusion” by living in adultery, fornication (porn), self gratification, bisexuality, lesbianism, homosexuality, and bestiality found it’s way at the table.

The removal of all shame and stigmatization is only found in Jesus. It’s found in renouncing all sin.

The closet is a dark place when the door is closed and no one sees inside. No one except the One who died for you to set you free. The guilt and shame of sin is what keeps many in the closet. However, we understand that even when you attend homosexual churches, you do feel some sort of freedom, but not the kind of freedom that you would fully experience when you come out of sin.

In many of you, you suppress the depression.

The desire to be accepted and loved by God is intense. The desire to do what you do while God accepts you is what all LGBT people want because they cannot separate the fact that sin is against the will of God. There would be no point for Jesus to die for sin if we are permitted to continue to sin.

But anarchy and to live in open rebellion against the God of heaven cannot, and will not happen. Just imagine heaven filled with sin all around the throne of God. The objective is not to push homosexual back into the closet. The objective is to show them that there is freedom in Christ from sin.

The noise of hatred must never drown out the true love of God. The noise of hatred must never drown out the truth of God. The noise of hatred must never cause you to shrink away from the love of God that is extended to every person.

Never let the pain of hatred that you have suffered from misguided people be the motivation to hate God and His Word. Sadly, reverse hatred because of a love for sin has being released to pervert the Scriptures. Reverse hatred has been the rallying call to label everything, including the Bible, as hate language.

To remove certain passages of Scripture, to attempt to rearrange the original context of the Scriptures, or changing the Scriptures to fit our life of sin cannot happen because Someone (God) is right, and all men is wrong.

God never asked you to like truth. God commands men everywhere to repent.

No one likes to repent and turn away from something that may be pleasurable, but when it comes to getting into the kingdom of God on God’s term, repentance is the least I could do. And if you choose not to repent, there must be a separation because sin cannot be allowed in God’s kingdom. God relentlessly hates sin and that’s His position.

The moment you accept the fact that the Word is right is the moment that true peace in Jesus comes.
