Well, the Lord Jesus did tell us that in Matthew 19:4-6 (NKJV Strong’s) “And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
But included in this article is what they want to present as an alternative fact to bolster their narrative.
I could be wrong but I don’t think there’s a study on Adultery Genes, Fornication Genes, or Extortion Genes, although I think years ago, somebody tried doing a study on Thief Genes.
But it’s an excuse to sin.
All the while, ignoring the Bible that reveal the reason why man will sin against God.
Sin isn’t biological.
Colossians 1:13-14 (NKJV Strong’s) “He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.”
Sin is the results of yielding to the spiritual power of satan within the heart of sinful people.
Ephesians 2:1-3 (NKJV Strong’s) “And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.”
Notice that Paul is speaking to believers in Christ that were “dead in trespasses and sins…”
Gay Christians isn’t included. btw, there’s no such thing as a “Gay Christian.”
You can’t be in Christ and practice sin at the same time. It’s called hypocrisy. We will never be perfect in this life, but with the help of the Holy Spirit to obey the Word of God, we can overcome sin in this life.
Jesus said, “He whom the Son sets free is free indeed.”
As we’ve been saying all along is that man is attempting to blame the Creator for his present condition of a fallen nature and using hypothesis and theory of science to justify sin.
This is done to run from being accountable to God for original sin.
But even with scientific evidence that clearly refute any fabricated biological hypothesis, man will move on to find an excuse to remain in sin.
Man was never designed by God to have sex with another man.
He created woman for that reason.
Woman was never designed by God to have sex with another woman.
It’s out of divine order.
Sex is within the confines of marriage between one man and one woman.
God made the rules, not man.
Break the rules and a penalty is imposed.
As a result, when homosexuals engage in sex, the penalty is severe. The purpose of the penalty is to reinforce to them and others the fact that God’s way is the best and ONLY way.
Just like when people break the law. After being tried, they’re convicts and felons. They’re sentenced based on the law as punishment to pay for their crime.
So it’s the same spiritually.
You don’t have to sin. But if you do, just know that……….
“For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Even though man was born after God created Adam & Eve in sin, and that the Scriptures confined all under sin (see Galatians 3:22), the Lord made provision for our deliverance from the power and guilt of sin by “demonstrating His love for us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
You have a right to believe anything you want, but when the truth is shared, you have the right to ignore and suppress the knowledge of the truth in unrighteousness, and continue in sin, or you can repent, ask the Lord of all for forgiveness, declare Jesus as Lord, and forsake sin for the rest of your life.
The choice is up to you.

A judge in Norfolk VA ruled in favor of a transgender that used to go to High School, identified as a female, to use female restrooms.
He’s 20 years old now and lives in Cali.
Like I said, just because you’re insane, it doesn’t mean I have to be insane like you.
When a male walks into a female restroom, they’re out of place.
You’re a male. You go to the male restroom.
Matthew 19:4-5 (NKJV Strong’s) “And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?”
No matter what law you create, based on the misinterpreted and misapplied 14th Amendment, whatever you were born with undoubtedly and unmistakably identifies your gender.
The 14th Amendment was written by Republicans to ensure that Blacks have equal protection under the law. It’s been hijacked to include sexual orientation and abortion.
It’s a no brainer and without statistics, women are uncomfortable when a male follows them into the female bathroom.
It’s INSANE= “unhealthy” to allow a man that claims to be a female just because hormones and make up, and surgically altered appearances gives them the right to invade a real woman’s place of privacy.
In 2014, a real woman was insane enough to attempt to take on a biological male in a sanctioned MMA match, claiming to be a transgender woman, he fractured her skull with a punch.

It’s a clear mental disorder and you know it.
Culture is powerless to change X Y chromosomes, DNA, and biological gender no matter how many laws are written.
It’s important to speak against this as often as possible because if you see it often, it’s in hopes that you would surrender what the Bible said.
In China, there’s a concerted effort to alter any Biblical references and replace it with Chinese culture.
The Word of God is a major threat to abnormal thinking.
The Word of God, when received and obeyed, will bring stability to us.
Sin and unrighteousness, when acted upon, brings instability, woe, destruction, and ultimately, death.
This is what sin does. Culture is always looking to dethrone God and His Word, but no matter how many attempts, the Bible will always be there to help people regain sanity.
1 Corinthians 15:57-58 (NKJV Strong’s) “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”
Hold your ground and do not capitulate in the face of political or cultural pressure.
We have yet to see law with teeth. Enforceable laws where penalties include incarceration. Although in some places and in federal law, discrimination is prohibited. In the work place, indoctrination is in full swing.
Your place of employment is doing everything in its power to force compliance.
Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego faced incredible odds to stand on the Word of God or face punishment in the lion’s den or the fiery furnace. Yet, in the midst of this, God delivered them.
Sin will NEVER win.
Boys use boys bathrooms. Girls use girls bathrooms.
It’s not discrimination. It’s God’s design that’s under attack.
Hence, it’s man attempting to dethrone God and His divine order.
To do this, you have to dethrone sanity, accept insanity, and this includes dethroning God, who created us.
It’s that simple.
I refuse to be insane as the world.
When you refuse to be as insane as the world, you will be told that you’re not normal.
Males that go into a woman’s bathroom isn’t normal.

The indoctrination of children in the classroom of homosexuality is one of the most heinous forms of vile perversion that targets children in the classrooms today.
Especially when a practicing homosexual brought a book (King & King) to read it to children about two men finding “love” without parental consent.
In North Carolina, a practicing homosexual wanted the support of the school board after it was discovered.
Folks, if we do not fight for our children, they will take our children.
There is nothing beautiful about homosexual “love.”
The whole purpose of indoctrinating children is to “reproduce” more children. Reproduce by indoctrination. Since men cannot inseminate men and since men cannot give birth, their only recourse is to indoctrinate, surrogate or adopt children.
To teach children sexual immorality where consequential judgment will fall is not educating children. It’s setting them up for a date with sickness and disease, and quite possibly death. Not to mention the drugs and alcohol that is associated with such sinful behavior.
Parent, take charge of your child or the devil’s children will take your child.
We all know that it is about homosexual lust.
The goal is to get them involved in the sin of homosexuality early. To deposit the seeds of unrighteousness in them early so that later on in their life, they move from innocence to sin which produces in them guilt and shame.
In Genesis 19, two angels were sent into the city to rescue Lot and his family. The men in that city, young and old, demanded to have sex with the two angels. Lot offered his two daughters but the men in that city refused to have any sex with a woman. The men of that city wanted the two angels. Evidence that it was about the sin of homosexuality. The angels blinded the men in that city. A few hours later, the city received fire and brimstone.
Their lust for men is what it was about.
So it is today.
It is not about love but lust and everyone knows it.
But what is the end result of obeying the lusts of the flesh? Especially on the level of having sex with the same sex?
It’s called consequential judgment.
There is a penalty attached to sin. No sin goes unpunished.
The sad thing is that the reasoning has gone crazy. From trying to shift blame of acquisition of the disease to pretending that God doesn’t punish sin.
On the Internet, movies, and other venues, the media always try to make homosexuality acceptable, pretty, and beautiful.
There is nothing acceptable, pretty, or beautiful about it.
And everyone knows it.
Sin is like vomit from a dog or human, sitting on a street corner on a sunny day with flies on it.
Homosexuality is “…an abomination,” or disgusting.
And everyone knows it.
The STD’s that are contracted even when adultery or fornication happens is the gist of sexual immorality.
There is nothing beautiful about acquiring STDs when sexual sins is avoidable.
Sadly, the pleasure of sexual sins is like taking a plunge in a pool that is 10 feet deep with no water.
The pleasure of sexual sin is like jumping off a cliff.
The happiness that they claim to have will always have a shadow of shame, hopelessness, and unfulfilled-ness attached to it.
The heart of man yearns to be fully satisfied. It is never found in the sins of the flesh. It is only found in Jesus. There’s something good about the love of Jesus. He fully satisfies. Everything that you are looking for is found in Jesus. There is no danger of STDs when you accept the terms of salvation. There is no fear of Jesus walking out on you. There is no fear of Jesus turning His back on you.
Jesus will not trade you for another lover.
Jesus is Faithful.
He proved His faithfulness when He died on the cross for the sin of the whole world. Jesus loved us with an everlasting love. Jesus’ love for us is not cheap. He shed His blood for us. No greater love than this that a man lay down His life for His friends (John 15:13).
The Father demonstrated His love towards us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
There’s nothing to be afraid of when you turn your life entirely over to Him.
“His love never fails, never gives up, it never runs out on you.”
True love cannot be found in lust. For lust was destroyed on the cross and our love for God replaces that lust.
We prove our love for Him when we keep His commandments (John 14:15 and 15:14).
For the Bible says “Perfect love casts out fear.”
This perfect love is only found in Jesus. Not with another man. Not with another woman.
Perfect love that never disappoints is only found in Jesus.
The article regarding the North Carolina incident in the public schools written by the Family Research Council could be read here.
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.
From heaven’s perspective, the Father is seeing something.
Let me ask you a question?
Would the Lord come back for a Bride or a prostitute?
If you are steeped in Secret and Open Sexual Sin, you are a prostitute before the Lord.
Just when you get to a place where perhaps some civility may come about in the leadership of the Body of Christ, you come across more abominations from the leadership in the Body of Christ.
EXMinistries headed by G. Craige Lewis came across this video of Bishop Wayne T. Jackson laying on the backsides of men that were draped with a sheet. Here is the link…..http://exministries.wordpress.com/2013/01/08/thieves-in-the-temple-bishop-lies-on-top-of-men-during-ritual-consecration/
GCMWatch has also weighed in heavily on this incident. Here is the link…http://www.gcmwatch.com/9843/bishop-wayne-t-jacksons-consecration-includes-simulated-sex-act-with-men
When the evidence gets pulled, there is a way to get it because of Luke 12:2…..https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=471662559557412
I did not watch the video because it is nothing more than a man acting out his Secret and Open Sexual Sins fantasy doing soft homosexual porn in the temple of the Lord.
UPDATE: I had a chance to observe the video (01-09-2012). This unusual act of consecration was repulsive. In talking with someone about this, it was called “an ancient ritual.” In asking for Scriptural precedence, this person confirmed that there was none. As we all knew from jump street. Liturgical precedence is one thing but Scriptural precedence is another. Liturgical modes of worship never supersedes Scriptural precedence.
The Ancient of days has the sole right to authorize all rituals. Additionally, Catholicism has infiltrated the church to the degree that we no longer are true Protestants. The intermingling of catholicism and grace is no different than Judaism and the gospel. Why is it that we lean so heavily on Catholicism for legitimacy when the Bible stands alone as Final Authority? Why do we look to man for endorsement and authority? The answer is simple. The Lord is no longer among us. Just as the Book of Isaiah says, “I hid Me.”
GCMWatch.com got a hold of Dr. Corletta J. Vaughn’s response to this debacle.
If you are not outraged by this sinful behavior, then you are connected to the very thing that the Lord is against.
When people say, just pray, or they don’t know any better. Tell that to families of little children that lost their child to a sexual predator. Tell that to women that were raped and sexually abused. This was a deliberate sexual act caught on camera. It was an intentional deliberate act that further erodes the righteous stand of the church. No where in Scripture do we see the justification of this senseless act of Open Sexual Sin.
The sad thing is that it was done in the house of the Lord.
I am not shocked because of what the Lord spoke to me about several months ago.
I, and many other men and women of God have never seen anything like this but the book of Ezekiel in chapter 8 speaks of escalations of perversions and abominations. But these things were done in the temple. We do not write about this to gossip.
We command Bishop Wayne T. Jackson to repent of this wickedness. We do not need an explanation. We do not need a play by play perversion of Scriptures to justify this on camera event of perverseness in the house of the Lord.
What is required is REPENTANCE!
Can a person be commanded to repent?
Absolutely. Read Acts 17:30. Sinners are commanded to repent.
Also, isn’t interesting to note that the JCAAPB ran into an incident regarding ordaining homosexuals? Isn’t that strange? You know. The connection of sexual immorality and ritual to legitimize a minister? It just seems so eerily demonic the way things are playing itself out, and its roots could be traced all the way back to Catholicism.
It’s no wonder that the Body of Christ is powerless in the United States. In particular, pastors and leaders in churches that major in three categories.
1. Emotional Manipulation.
2. Intellectual Manipulation.
3. Revelatory Manipulation.
It is no wonder that the church is no where as clean as she should be (see Ephesians 5:26-27).
There is a good chance that we will not see repentance. If the odds are correct, most people that are caught with incriminating evidence of perverseness on this level will duck and dodge instead of coming clean about the incident.
They say that if something important happens on the internet, in 2 minutes, 2 million people know about it.
Flash Traffic UPDATE: More is to be said from me about this.
From a FB friend, these words were posted on Bishop Jackson’s FB page…
Response from Bishop Wayne T Jackson, in regards to the below video depicting him laying on the back of men he was “ordaining”
Bishop Wayne T. Jackson I just want to say thank you for all your feedback on my page. It is really interesting that some people can take a video such as this so out of context. I am not here on Facebook or anywhere else to debate the Word or to debate with man/woman. The Word does state “You will know them by their fruits Matthew 7:16.. This is absolutely demonic and a waste of time for us to be engaged in a debate in this. God Bless!!
And there we have it Saints…He has NO viable response to the question of, “where does God’s word said to perform such a ritual.”
Credit for this goes to Sister Tamara Mills.
The sad thing is that he used a portion of Scripture that underscores the Holy Spirit revealing the darkness in his heart.
“You will know them by their fruits…” A man laying on the buttocks of another man? Not one but two men?
You know that this is what Jesus called “Bad Fruit” from a “Bad Tree,” “Corrupt Tree,” or an “Evil Tree.”
Have you ever fell and others around you were laughing? Embarrassing? Right? But this goes way beyond embarrassment. This person is very prideful and arrogant.
Here is what I thought would be a response.
“The Bible says in ‘such and such’ that we are to consecrate men into the ministry like ‘so and so’ did.”
Now you know that we are not stupid.
It is never about debating it is about what is sin and what is righteousness. We all know by evidence that this is sin. Folks, as a rule of thumb, never say something or type something without realizing that you will be held accountable.
As we would say in the Navy.
More to follow.
You’ve been there, time and time again. Wondering if you will ever get to the place where you will make a stand against answering the call to fulfill the lusts of your mind and flesh.
You find yourself watching women, watching men, or touching yourself. Or you hook up with that sister. You hook up with that brother.
You said that you would cut ties, or that you would never cross lines.
All for naught.
Each fall weighs heavily on your mind and you have reached the place of hopelessness.
I’ve been there. Millions of men have been there. Millions of women too.
Masturbation, sight and mental adultery, and porn was a very difficult habit to break in my life. It took a Word from the Lord at the time the Lord blessed me with a tremendous deliverance to get me to quit.
I learned that just because something is difficult it doesn’t mean that it can’t be broken.
The power of sin was broken on the cross, on the body of Jesus. But the human will to accept that fact and apply that fact to my mind and body proved more difficult to incorporate. A “what’s the use” mentality, and other notions, fueled my perverted passion to satisfy myself.
Put aside for a moment “trigger mechanisms, medicinal properties, pharmaceutical and endocrine chemical dependency adventures, love and esteem needs.”
All these things are great identifying points where sexual immorality is permitted, but the root cause of all sin is pleasure.
If sin weren’t pleasurable, you wouldn’t even consider doing it. But when we look at how the Lord is affected by what we do, we will either suppress how the Lord feels in pursuit of pleasure apart from God or we defy the Lord on the level of Zimri and Cozbi.
Too often, we look at the breach in the barrier and stand there, doubting if anything could be done to consider challenging what is in front of us. Christ made that breach so we could escape but we linger because to walk away after experiencing false pleasure after false pleasure is enough to look back……..like Lot’s wife.
When habits of the mind and body are established repetitively, to undo the training, one must find “grace to help in time of need.”
Your only chance is to completely surrender in total obedience to the grace of God.
There is a song called “Total Praise” by Richard Smallwood. I wish someone would create a song called Total Obedience.
These days, praise and worship songs of our times that exalts the name of the Lord are very popular, as they should be.
But equally important is the heart condition, before, during, and after the song is sung.
The grace of God is not pleasant. Grace demands complete severance from the utensils of sin. Jesus called it…“cut it off…”
In Setting Captives Free, the course “Way To Purity” by Mike Cleveland, he called it, “radical amputation.”
That stuck with me. There are varying degrees of where men are with the grace of deliverance necessary to stay free.
What makes deliverance sticks for some is knowing that you are accountable to other men. This is very scary and prohibitive of men because men do not like it when other men stick their noses in their sexual business. We have no problem talking about male sexual conquest but to talk repentantly about sex……..no way.
That’s part of the secrecy of Secret Sexual Sins.
Secrecy is the breeding ground of sexual sins.
Reminds me of a man that was in a fatal car accident on the FDR in Manhattan. He was wealthy and married. With children. They found out that he was seeing a mistress for a few years because that’s where he was either headed or going to.
Secrecy is the breeding ground of sexual sins.
It’s the same with a very popular football player. Steve “Air” McNair. Father of three and married. His mistress shot him five times and committed suicide after Steve dumped her. Steve found another mistress and that was the tipping point for her. She had nothing to lose, was in financial troubles, and decided to end it all.
Secrecy is the breeding ground of sexual sins.
Reminds me of Jim Bakker, sleeping with a church secretary before being convicted of fraud. Jimmy Swaggart going to a hotel room to masturbate to a stripper. Both married with children. Reminds me of Pastor Henry Lyons who used National Baptist Convention money to pay his mistress to keep quiet and live a lavish lifestyle. The wife of Henry Lyons burned the house down, literally. The mistress died in prison and Henry Lyons spent time in jail.
Secrecy is the breeding ground of sexual sins.
Chances are, each one of these men have deep secret lives of porn and masturbation. Look at the late Dr. Tims. Where did you think he got the idea of hooking up with an exotic dancer. Look no further than the Internet and porn sites.
Some of you may be thinking that bring up these sins is unjustified.
Quite the contrary.
Put my name there and I am justified.
My secret life mirrors every man that has ever watched porn and masturbated in secrecy.
Very few articles or interviews will reveal the real hidden secret life of men and identify the root cause of scandals.
Masturbation and porn in the life of powerful men.
That’s why men run from the Lord. They never come to church because they do not want to be accountable. If they do show up in church, forget about talking about what is deeply hidden in the hearts and minds of men.
It’s not that accountability would have saved these men because the person being held accountable must submit. You can’t check what is in the heart if the heart refuses to show up. That’s where the problem is.
When a man refuses to submit to measurable, confrontational, compassionate accountability, he can never be trusted.
But on the other hand, such accountability, depending upon who is doing the accounting, must be firm but fair. Not manipulative or coercive. Confrontation is like two pugilists and when one doesn’t want to be pushed, it is important to recognize that and know when to back off.
Accountability is never man assuming a God position.
Paul said this in Galatians 6:1……
“Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in the spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.”
It’s learning how to help a person through a difficult moment of trials and temptation to help him get to a place of sustained victory. Then you have to let the Lord help him with grace to stand on their own. You can’t hold your son’s hand all your life because sooner or later, your time on earth will end. But what you instill within them must suffice and then you have to commit their life into the hands of a Faithful Creator.
It’s like being a dentist in a shark tank.
For some men, they cannot touch the Internet. The trap is set. It’s a “one thing leads to another” system.
When a woman is pictured with cleavage and legs, men click the image to see more. And then it leads to other places on the Internet all the way to free porn.
Yes, I’ve been there.
In my audio blog on Secret Sexual Sins on BlogTalkRadio.com, (here is the link blogtalkradio.com/prevailingword1) I shared a testimony that I downloaded so much Internet porn that when you click on one site, a cascade of images would rain on the computer.
So much so that my laptop couldn’t handle the downloads and froze the computer. I had to shut the laptop down and restart it all over again because the images were coming too fast for the memory to handle.
There are other men that cannot turn their eyes away from women. In the store, the mall, the street, driving the car, church, work, subway, and on the bus. As soon as you see them, the mind goes into “check him or her out mode.”
It’s a search and be destroyed mission.
While at a conference with preachers, here comes this young looking girl and in fitted jeans too. So my eyes went in another direction to avoid lusting and I observed where their eyes went.
Why do I keep falling for the same thing, you are asking? It’s because we fail to realize that every part of us belongs to the Lord. God created all of our faculties and through the Word, we have an obligation to obey the Word. To stop the fall, we must obey the Word of God, without thought or question.
We must refuse to accept hopelessness and use it as an excuse to continue to fail.
We must identify what leads us from one place to anther and then make a Job 31:1 commitment with our eyes. A Matthew 5:28-30 commitment to not commit sight adultery. A 1 Corinthians 9:27 commitment to discipline and subdue the body, to literally beat our bodies into submission. A 1 Peter 5:9 and James 4:7-8 commitment to submit to God, resist the devil, drawn near to God and God drawing near to us, and cleansing our hands.
Ladies, you can reapply this or transpose this as you see fit for your sexual accountability group.
The first rule of accountability is to man up and own up.
The second rule of accountability is to obey the Word.
The third rule of accountability is never be proud of your accomplishments because you can fall at any moment.
The fourth rule of accountability is to please only one Person, the Lord.
The fifth rule of accountability is to maintain constant contact with a group of men you feel safe to trust with the secrets of your life.
Like Peter said….“if you do these things and abound, you will never fall…”
Finally, Sister Selena Mosley of Equipped For Change Ministries was challenged by an individual. This person stated that Sister Selena wasn’t delivered because she talked about homosexuality so much.
Well, the man in the tombs, who was possessed with an unclean spirit, was delivered by the Lord, the man spent time with Jesus and wanted to stay with Jesus. But the Lord told him to go and tell what great things the Lord has done for him and has had compassion on him.
Telling others about how great a deliverance the Lord gave us is what we are supposed to do. In fact, rarely do people fall when they chronicle and regularly speak of their deliverance.
Sometimes, when people do not talk about their deliverance, it’s part of their Secret Sexual Sins kind of living. I do not believe that people should be proud about “their” deliverance in terms of wearing it like a combat badge of honor. We don’t need fake heroes.
But on the other hand, others are looking for a testimony that is real and authentic. A genuine deliverance that give a person that is struggling, some hope that the grace of God does, in fact, work.
Sisters Selena Mosley, Janet Boynes, Kiana Kiwi-Dennis, Denise Jones,
Charlene E Hios, Costina Sheppard, Charlene Cothran, and all the other wonderful ladies in the Lord whom God has genuinely set free, keep telling your story.
Someone is listening.
Live, and coming to network television station near you…The Miss or Mister LGBT Universe Pageant.
In a stunning turn of events, the Miss Universe Pageant reversed it’s decision. They will now allow a “sexually rearranged” person compete against naturally born women. As always, this is a test.
In the Navy we would call it “Float The Buoy.” It is Navy lingo for “test run.”
This invasion into the hearts of men is not drill. This is the real deal.
The fact that the LGBT community applauded this decision comes as no surprise. So in the future, we must expect the most vilest acts to parade itself on the national and international stage with little to no objection.
The plan all along was to desensitize the world so that its sins could be paraded around without opposition. At the same time, the church is desensitized and sympathetic to sin because sin and righteousness are alike to most people that claim to be believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
When believers are sympathetic to sin, they are on the wrong side of righteousness called the wrath of God unless they repent. When you hear preachers and believers say, “I don’t have a problem with it.” It is the signal to run from them. RUN!!!! Before you believe their deception and accept their lies.
Much to their surprise, God was never tolerant of believers that sin willfully and they are enemies of the cross of Jesus. How soon many forget what Jesus died for.
He died for our sins. Not that we could continue in sin that grace may abound, but that sin would be stopped (see 1 John 3:8).
The church, because it has forsaken the Lord, is drunk with the world, having tossed aside it’s holy consecration, is a sleeping giant, tied between the post, with no eyes. The church is so drunk with the world that we are becoming a non factor.
Many of you have heard the the church’s finest hour is upon us. It is only upon those that take a stand against all unrighteousness and live according to the Scriptures in righteousness and true holiness. It’s finest hour is dependent upon you to live with distinction.
Either they know that you are a child of God, or a child of the devil. Either you practice sin, or you practice righteousness. You cannot practice both. You can’t be in darkness and light at the same time. Every time the church says something, the world just yarns and say, “Oh. It’s you.” and continue, fearlessly in sin.
The church is like a compromised cop standing on the corner. The cop/church, when it sees outrageous sin, we say, “Stop!” The world looks at the cop/church and says, “Here. Take some sin” and we take it without question.
The only exception is those that are daring enough to speak against sin and expose its vilest forms inside and outside the church. What’s important is that not only the voice of the church is relatively mute, the church is in bed with Secret Sexual Sins.
Our lack of repentance, holy living, and righteous consecration is an open door invitation for sinners to live conviction free. The world and the carnal Christians in the church want the Word of God to lighten up. Not in these last and evil days. This is a full court press to test and try the hearts of men.
To see who really wants to be a child of God or a child of the devil. What better way to test and try the church than to put before the church the choice to sexually sin or to abstain. It is not God testing the people. It is the devil. And many are falling away in this great apostasy flooding the church.
Do not get me wrong.
God does try the hearts but not with sin (see James 1:12-15). There is no doubt in my mind that the world, and its ability to project sin and lambast anyone that opposes sinful behavior that the playing field is about to dramatically change.
In the 1990’s when NYPD Blue came out, there was no doubt that it was a test run for porn to be played before prime time audiences. Back then, every now and then, the gay community would somehow find its way in the script. After midnight, on network TV, soft porn would be available.
When the Miss America Pageant and other contestants shows would be brought before the public, there was no doubt that women were exploited. In the Mr. Universe and bodybuilding competitions, you know that male sexploitation was there. We just don’t hear about it.
Objectification of women is the ultimate sport of men because men are natural hunters. Conquest, search, and conquer. Men couldn’t wait for the swimsuit competition. Like dog with our tongues hanging out, we had a bird’s-eye view of sex.
Then you have the sexploitation of little girls such as the late JonBenet Ramsey. Current porn producers called child pornography the final frontier. The endless, seamless connection of sexual immorality runs from kidnapping to looking to become an “A” movie actress, only to end up doing porn in a hopeless attempt to become an Oscar worthy famous actress.
Of course, we all know then that pageants were teasers to drive men to dark places but the introduction of teaser porn shows was all a man needed to get the ball rolling. Today, we are now confronted with the vilest forms of sin known to man. It is an indication that the Scriptures (see Luke 17) is clear about the condition of the hearts of men in these last days.
Seeing this person whose physical sexuality was deliberately altered permitted to parade around is not that surprising. Women every where now have precedence to surgically alter themselves to gain an edge on natural beauty. The elite women that need no cosmetic or surgical changes are faced with women that can manufacture, by surgery, perfect beauty.
Even to the point of men coming into a competition as a person with sexually rearranged surgery.
It was planned all along.
They were waiting for the right person, the right moment, and the right people in place to further acceptance of their sins. What is amazing is that to change your gender goes against the First Mentioned Principle of the Word of God. God created them “male and female.” LGBT’s famous line is “We were born this way.” This statement is an attempt to put the blame and responsibility on God.
Psalm 51:5-6 NIV says, “Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; You teach me wisdom in the inmost place.”
The only thing that was sure is that you were born in sin.
Adam and Eve brought sin and death into the world but Jesus came to re-establish man in right standing and right relationship with the Father by the new birth, through repentance, after having received the word and ministry of reconciliation (see Romans 5:12-21 and 2 Corinthians 5:17-21).
As far as your physical body is concerned, base on XY chromosomes from your biological father’s sperm, you entered the world with the gender you have. It’s amazing that at the judgment, the dead will stand before the Lord in the body they were born with?
Not with their “surgically altered body.”
Here’s the Scripture.
In Matthew 19:4-5, Jesus said,
“Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’
This is a direct quote of Genesis 1:26-27.
If you alter your body, is it a sin?
God did not make a mistake. You were there when you were born, right? Except, thank God you didn’t have anything to do with your sexual identification as a male or female. When you came out of the womb, you came with what you came with. So, why are you trying to change, alter, surgically rearrange the way God made you?
You can’t change the rules because you don’t like what you came with.
Where in the Bible does it say that it’s a sin to change your gender?
There is no Scripture that specifically prohibits gender alteration (i.e. “Thou shalt not change thy gender” is not in the Bible), but just because the Bible is silent about prohibiting sex changes, it doesn’t mean you have permission.
Many will argue that the opposite argument is the prevailing argument. That argument is easy to formulate because of the sin nature of unregenerate man to suppress the conscious just to have sin.
God knew before hand that man would successfully find a way to surgically alter or rearrange what He created. Accepting being gay or homosexual is the fist step. The last step or crossover is gender-reconfiguration.
We all know that gender alteration has everything to do with same sex or homosexuality.
It is when you deceived yourself into thinking that you need to change your physical body to match your sexual preference.
The connections between homosexuality and transgender identification is unmistakeable. Although, transgender people are a significantly small minority, they find their acceptance in LGBT.
But the real issue is identification.
You are attempting to answer questions about who you really are, and you are going to the wrong sources to get these answers.
As with all sins, it’s about who you identify with. Actually, there is only two spiritual identities in the world.
You either identify with righteousness or sin. Good or evil. Right or wrong. Truth or a lie.
Both identities has a source of origin.
God is good, holy, righteous, love, truth.
satan is bad, evil, unrighteous, hate, a liar.
When you change your physical identity, you are attempting to change the way God created your physical body. You willfully and intentionally reject His design. Because the heart of unregenerate man is dark and desperately wicked, when the light of His Word comes, you have the choice to accept or reject the light of His Word.
God cannot make you righteous. However, He has a right to do what He wants with His creation. The created has no right to tell the Creator what to do.
Isaiah 45:9-12 TLB says,
“Woe to the man who fights with his Creator. Does the pot argue with its maker? Does the clay dispute with him who forms it, saying, ‘Stop, you’re doing it wrong!” or the pot exclaim, ‘How clumsy can you be!” Woe to the baby just being born who squalls to his father and mother, ‘Why have you produced me? Can’t you do anything right at all’ Jehovah, the Holy One of Israel, Israel’s Creator, says: “What right have you to command Me concerning the work of My hands? I have made the earth and created man upon it. With My hands I have stretched out the heavens and commanded all the vast myriads of stars.”
The New English Translations says,
“One who argues with his Creator is in grave danger, one who is like a mere shard among the other shards on the ground! The clay should not say to the potter, “What in the world are you doing? Your work lacks skill!” Danger awaits one who says to his father, “What in the world are you fathering?” and to his mother, “What in the world are you bringing forth?” This is what the Lord says, the Holy One of Israel, the One who formed him, concerning things to come: “How dare you question me about my children! How dare you tell me what to do with the work of my own hands! I made the earth, I created the people who live on it. It was me- my hands stretched out the sky, I give orders to all the heavenly lights.”
Because of your sin nature, it is very easy to accept an alternative or substitute.
In the news, some of you may remember two male penguins that had “homosexual” tendencies. After while, it appeared that they have accepted their “sexuality” but they began to have a change of heart after these two penguins were introduced to female penguins.
They probably looked at each other and said it was time to be real male penguins.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if they were afforded the opportunity to change their physical gender to match their homosexual tendencies?
Animals instinctively knows where what goes where and if you do not have a what, it can’t go there.
Now humans are supposed to be intelligent enough to know the difference?
Among those who engage in bestiality, they determined that those that engage in bestiality have some of the highest IQ’s among humans.
Can you see that in some instances, animals have more sense than intelligent humans?
So, when you look on your TV screen and see what you’ve just read here, do not be surprised. Just look up. Because your redemption draws nigh!
I close with this.
“And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”
