Homosexuality In The Prison System

Dr. Ben Carson made a statement that everyone knows is true that the prison system turns straight people into homosexuals. And that homosexuality is a choice. All sin is a choice.

Now the system of correction is not directly at fault but the system within the system is at fault. What is that system within a system? It’s when inmates make up the rules and the corrections department either allows it or they haven’t discovered a way to discourage the sin of homosexuality.

There is no question that the prison system does have rules prohibiting homosexuality or contact with opposite sex guards, but we all know that they are circumvented. Therefore, we should not be surprised at Dr. Carson’s statement. It seems that the media is attempting to demonize Dr. Carson because he is considering a run for the presidency of the United States. However, we see that, unflinchingly, Dr. Carson is making a statement that America must face.

We also see that when there is a massive problem, we run from the solution. That is, until it directly involves us.

Case in point, when professed Christian parents have children that turn towards the sin of homosexuality. Instead of remaining true to the Lord, the parents run from the Scriptures to embrace their children. The point is not to destroy the child, but to tell the child that they must turn from sin and return to the Lord or be destroyed.

“The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

Harsh?

Unloving?

Well, when you love the Lord more than your children, the Bible is clear about it.

Matthew 22:37-40 says, “Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. ’On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

When it comes to loving the Lord, He demands absolute loyalty and love above every thing and everybody, including your children. When you love your children above the Lord, we must remember that we are created, God is the Creator.

Almost every parent is surprised when they hear that their child became a homosexual. The normal reaction of a parent is to support their child’s homosexuality. However, if you remember correctly in the Scriptures, the sons of Aaron burned strange fire on the altar of incense and both sons were killed immediately. The Lord told Aaron not to mourn for them. Don’t shed one tear. Why? It’s called being true to the Lord even when your children turns from the Lord.

In another place in Scripture, the sons of Eli committed sexual immorality and they were killed in battle. Eli died when he heard that the ark of the covenant was taken and that his sons were killed. The Lord told Eli that he honored his sons above the Lord. There is a steep price to be paid when you honor your sons above honoring the Lord.

Many will say that this is cold. However, we must remember that the Lord, He is God. He has standards that are above the ways of man. To disrespect the Lord in honoring our children’s practice of that which He declared an abomination is an insult to the Creator.

The statement and the person (Dr. Carson, or any person) should not be demonized because of the truth.

The article from CBS is a veiled attempt to discredit him from the presidency.

The homosexual controlled media will use everything in their power to discredit anyone that reveals the truth about the sin of homosexuality. From name calling (bigotry, discrimination, homophobia, etc.) to writing laws to force the will of homosexuality on genuine, authentic, God fearing, Bible believing and practicing people.

We that believe in the Lord Jesus cannot make or force people into becoming followers of Christ. We give you the command to repent and believe the gospel. It is entirely up to you to accept this generous offer or reject it. However, there is a penalty for rejecting a gracious offer. Romans 6:23.

We all know that homosexuality takes place in prison. It’s well documented.

Many will say that this demonizes homosexuality and homosexuals that are not incarcerated.

Homosexuality, whether practiced in the system or out is already demonized, for all sins come from the evil one. Men and women just act out their nature that comes from the devil (see John 8:44 and 1 John 3:4-10).

What is taking place is that the culture in the United States fosters the sin of homosexuality and the culture” will do everything to make the sin of homosexuality seem normal, thus acceptable. At the same time, anyone that rejects their normalcy of the sin of homosexuality will be severely blacklisted.

There is nothing normal about sin.

In 1991, while preaching in Rikers Island (C76), I observed a group of transvestites walking the corridor to eat lunch. Apparently, they were separated from the general prison population. And for good reason. While we would be preaching the Word of God, we would also notice the homosexual spirit on the men in the service.

It’s almost no different in our churches today. We allow practicing homosexuals to play organ, piano, or sing praise and worship. We allow them to preach and pastor churches.

Homosexuality has been a part of the so called Christian worship service. But a cleansing is taking place and for some, they will be set free. For others, there will be an exposure that will bring them front and center to be offered a chance to be delivered.

Homosexuality is a known activity because men are incarcerated for a time. In some prison systems, contact with people is extremely limited. In one case, the only way prisoners could talk to relatives or friends is but way of video phone. This reduces contraband from entering the prison population but it also reduces any affection to be experienced by the prisoner.

In another place, women are “hooking up” with other women in lesbian relationships on prison grounds. There is no question that the system is fostering the sin of homosexuality. Sex is a very powerful drug. Humans were created by the Lord to marry, copulate and bond. When a person commits a crime, they are cut off from any affection. Prisoners are left to find ways to feel wanted, appreciated, experience affection, and sex behind bars is sought for to replace that void.

We all know that when a man is incarcerated, sex is obviously withheld.

When men cannot have sex with the opposite sex in adultery or fornication, or their wives, we all know that the next “best” thing is homosexuality. In watching NatGeo of certain Prison shows, many men that look straight will tell you straight up that they have sex with men. They walk up to the one they want. They give them the ultimatum. Homosexual sex willingly or by force.

Yes, men on men rape is a regular thing.

Same sex rape is a serious problem in the military.

Since DADT was repealed, same sex rape increased in the military.

We should not be surprised at Dr. Carson’s answer because of the reality of what is actually going on in the system behind the system. So when some of the prisoners return to life outside, the lifestyle comes with them. For many young traumatized males, this is all they know. The stigmatization puts incredible strain on them and since they do not know how to handle it, the spirits of sexual immorality drive them to places where what they’ve experienced is furthered.

Bound by their desire for MSM and bound by their desire for WSW, they pursue sin.

So instead of labeling Dr. Carson as a demon, we need to take a good look at what is already going on in the prison system.

That it is true, and leave it at that.

HIV Among African Americans, The True Cause: More Smoke In Mirrors Rhetoric

There was an interesting article about contracting HIV/AIDS in the Black community. That it is more to it than the sin of homosexuality. Well, they made a list of “side issues” to detract from the main issue.

To be very blunt, when you, as a man, put your penis into the anus of another man, the results are well documented. When a man sticks his penis in the mouth of another man after it has penetrated the anus, the results are well documented.

There is no question about the residual causes (intravenous drugs, HIV by birth, etc.) associated with the sin of homosexuality but MSM is undoubtedly the root cause of HIV/AIDS. Make no mistake about it. Why hide the truth?

Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

Since man doesn’t want to be free, man chooses to stay in bondage to lies and deceptions to continue in the sin of homosexuality.

My blunt statements, and the blunt statements of many others that voiced the truth is what the LGBT community intentionally run away from and they will make every attempt to keep the truth from escaping the closet. By vainly attempting to normalize the sin of homosexuality, we see that there is nothing normal about what homosexuals practice. 

We all know that the truth is already out but to keep blinding the minds of man, statements like what I’ve read will do the job.

This is not hate language. You’ve never read that I hate you.

God knows how to love you and hate you at the same time.

God’s face is against the wicked. God’s Word is against the wicked. But the love of God is offered to the wicked. Yet, because of a deep love for sin over righteousness, the wicked will not come to the love of the Father. This love has a time date stamped on it.

Your death or the coming of the Lord, which ever comes first.

In love, I share the love of Jesus by telling you the truth because you and I do not have much time left on this earth. For some people involved with any sin, truth becomes too much to bear when the convicting power of the Holy Spirit comes. In that conviction, you will either accept the truth and repent, or “suppress the truth in unrighteousness.” 

The proof that what is shared as truth is when you suppress the truth.

You are not being forced into accepting truth. You can reject the truth but ask yourself whether or not it’s a risk you are willing to accept. After death, comes the judgment. If you are in Christ, after death comes the reward of the Father’s love.

The purpose of conviction is to get the message over to you that what you are doing is in direct violation of the Word of God. When the flashing lights of a police car are behind you, you may have violated the law. Such is the case with the Word of God. Like flashing lights, you are violating the law.

You might be able to fight a police ticket, but no one can fight against the Word of God and win.

When you practice sin in violation against the Lord God, there is the consequential judgment applied to every act of deliberate sin. Touch fire and you will get burned. Drink poison and you will get sick and or die. 

Ezekiel 18:4

“Behold, all souls are Mine;

The soul of the father

As well as the soul of the son is Mine;

The soul who sins shall die.”

No matter how practicing homosexuals want to legitimatize the sin of homosexuality, the results will always be the same. 

The wisdom of God overrides the will and laws of man every time.

Man can make laws to outlaw Christians and the Bible. Man can make laws with penalties attached to force Christians to be silenced and perform weddings of homosexuals. Man can make whatever laws they want, but to be very clear, I will deliberately disobey man’s law to legitimize the sin of homosexuality. 

I’d rather be judged by sinners and be found guilty of disobeying man’s impotent laws that transgress the Word of God than to be judged by God for obeying man over God.  

Jesus said in Matthew 10:27-28

“Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Face it. God is way smarter than man because He is the Creator. No, God did not make man to be homosexuals because man was created in the image of God. Sin came when Adam transgressed the commandment of God. As a result, death came into the world.

However, through the expiatory death of His Son, when we repent of sin and forsake sin, we can have eternal life.

You have every right to believe that the Bible is a fairy tale. You have every right to not believe that Jesus died for your sins. You have every right to make any law you want. But you can’t stop death. It comes for every man.

Hebrews 9:27 says, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die after this the judgment.”

Since death is true, judgment is true.

Ask yourself this question.

“Do you know why man must die?”

If you have a better answer than the Bible and a better solution than the Bible, we are waiting to hear what you have to say.

The article about why African Americans make up 50% of all HIV/AIDS cases could be read here, but make no mistake about it, it’s the practice of homosexuality that is the root cause of HIV/AIDS. To think otherwise or to provide smoke in mirrors is folly.

AARP And LGBT

American Association of Retired Persons (logo).png

AARP & LGBT are connected?

This isn’t news to most of the American world.

However, it was news to me when I looked on the AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) site to renew my membership.

Everyone knows that when you reach the age of 50, AARP reminds you with an email so that you could join the ranks of the 50 and over club. No one is really excited about getting up in age because it is a signal that you are entering the back end of life.

But all of a sudden, I noticed on the bottom of their web page their support for LGBT.

Let’s face it.

Almost every business and sadly, some professed believers, except the holy believers of the Lord Jesus Christ, and I am not talking about catholicism, will support the sin of homosexuality. Most businesses and gay affirming houses of demonic worship will have some statement of inclusion or outright support for the sin of homosexuality.

You can’t be a house of the Lord to worship God while supporting the very sin God sent His Son into the earth to die for.

As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Bible is clear about God’s stand against the sin of homosexuality.

God is clear as a bell about it. Genesis chapters 18 and 19, Leviticus 18:22, Romans 1:18-32, and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

A gay or practicing homosexual cannot inherit the kingdom of God. Just like adulterers, fornicators, effeminates, sodomites, extortioners, liars, thieves, murderers, etc. Matthew 7:21-23 is clear as a bell. Those that practice lawlessness and those that refuse do what the Lord Jesus said will be told by the Lord, “Depart from Me you that practice lawlessness.”

So, in the best interest of keeping my relationship with the Lord, I had to say goodbye to AARP.

Almost everything that we buy, our proceeds go to support the sin of homosexuality. Starbucks, Home Depot, The Girl Scouts, The Boy Scouts, and other organizations.

The Lord is a jealous God and He will have no other gods before Him (see Exodus 20:3).

The driving force behind these businesses is money.

Jesus said this in Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

Paul said in 1 Timothy 6:10 “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

Money is driving the reason why businesses support the sin of homosexuality. So, in broad daylight, if you declare as a business your unwavering support for LGBT, you are in the money.

The moment that you declare that you do not support the sin of homosexuality is the moment that you are listed as a bigot, discriminate, a gay hater, and of course, the “H” word.

HOMOPHOBE!!! 

And in most cases, you are sneered at and cut off from any of their money.

When the god of money speaks, either you listen or you are blacklisted as a business that is against the god of homosexuality called LGBT.

As one person put it so appropriately……“I’d rather be judged by the world that has no hell to put me in than to be judged by Almighty God that is fully capable of putting all sinners into the lake that burns with fire and brimstone.”

Jesus, the One every one says is about love, said these indisputable words in Matthew 10:28.

“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

You see, in the figment of their imagination, they have erected a god that favors their sin. That’s why they want SSM. Marriage legitimizes a relationship. But only God legitimizes a relationship according to Genesis 2:24 and Matthew 19:4-5. Since God created male and female. Since God brought the woman to the man. Since God joins male and female, man doesn’t have the right to alter, substitute, change, or adjust to their liking what marriage is supposed to be.

Since male and male, or female and female cannot copulate, it is further evidence that incompatibility proves the righteousness of God. You can’t connect two male prongs and you cannot connect two outlet plugs.

One has to be male and the other has to be female.

Very simple concept, yet, it is very difficult concept for practicing homosexuals.

Few of us understand to some extent in our finite minds the magnitude of His death, burial, and resurrection. Jesus didn’t just come to be a nice prophet, teacher, and prolific speaker. Jesus is the Lamb of God sent into the earth by the Father to pay for man’s sins by dying on the cross. God placed on Jesus our chastisement. Jesus bore our punishment to free us from the power and guilt of sin.

To reject so great a salvation or to try to live in sin and try to claim some righteousness of our own is a big disrespect to the One who paid our penalty.

Money is the driving force behind these advertisements.

So, either you support them or you are cut off from their money. In some states, you will be taken to court for defamation, discrimination, and bigotry. They will make you go through some sort of “sensitivity training.”

Which is just another form of brainwashing you to make righteousness out to be bad and sin to be good.

Sensitivity to the sin of homosexuality and insensitivity to the Word of God.

Many homosexuals are hurt because the Bible rejects their sin. We never look at it from the Lord’s perspective that man hurt God by walking away from His will and standard. Sin is destructive. Sin leads to death. All the Lord wanted to do is save man from sin so that man wouldn’t destroy himself.

Yet, man wants destruction than life.

So goodbye AARP.

The Only Answer For Ferguson, MO. It’s A Brainer.

The decision not to indict Officer Wilson devastated the nation.

Michael Brown, an unarmed man was gunned down by Wilson. It is understandable that people would be upset, however, a deeper issue is being missed.

150,000 persons pass into eternity every single day. 1.8 persons per second.

As I have said before. No one is really thinking about the fact that Michael Brown is in eternity. What part of eternity? Most people want to assume that he is either in heaven or hell. If he made repentance to Jesus, then it’s a no brainer. If he failed to do so, he is in hell. Just because he may have died a horrible death, it doesn’t automatically award a person a place in heaven.

But the question is about you now. In a nano second, you and I could be plunged into eternity. Where will you spend eternity if you are not saved?

In hell.

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27.

Few of us will look at it from the eternal perspective because of the darkness of men’s heart.

Just a few moments ago, a bunch of clergy in Ferguson stood on the stage with the mayor of Ferguson.

I must say that this is the day where preachers are ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are ashamed to preach the only solution to man’s woe’s. So long as man refuses to come to the Lord in repentance, more incidences will ensue. Eternity is a long time to think about why people refuse to repent of sin and be born again.

What’s more important to us is “race relations.” Not eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Some will say that I am missing the point. No. Because at the end of the day, everyone’s grain of sand in the hour glass will fall and the end of life will be realized.

Social injustice is first a spiritual injustice. What is the spiritual injustice? As long as man is in sin and refuses to come to the Lord to be saved from sin, more Fergusons will happen. Spiritual injustice? One person said that there is a “vacuum of leadership from the Black community.”

There is a spiritual vacuum of pastoral leadership to preach and live the gospel of Jesus Christ. But it’s not every where. There are pastors that are living and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in Ferguson, but people refuse to come to be saved by the Lord.

Here is the reason.

As long as the heart of man “is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked,” nothing will change.

More deaths will occur.

The Lord Jesus said this….John 3:17-21 says, “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

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.”

Paul said this in 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”

You see, it wasn’t the white man that won. The real person behind the scene won.

“…the god of this world.”

He is called satan or adversary. He is not a figment of a person’s imagination. Devils and satan exist and because men reason this into their minds that they do not exist and that Jesus is a myth, they are blinded.

Many will not believe the Bible, the Word of God. Many will not believe that Jesus is the Only Way, Truth, and Life (see John 14:6). Many will not believe that “Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

Many will mock, sneer, and scorn the true Word of God.

Lastly, clergy that stand in front of microphones and are ashamed of speaking about the Only Solution, the Lord Jesus Christ, are compromised. When you are ashamed of the name that is above every name, they have denied the Lord.

Paul said, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation…” Romans 1:16. 

It’s not the power of prayer that gets things done.

It is the God that answer prayer that is the true power behind our praying.

When you hear people say that they have the power of prayer, it’s a dead giveaway that they think that they can answer their prayers by just praying.

God answers prayer but the people that pray cannot compromise the protocol of prayer.

Praying to the Father in Jesus’ name.

They cannot withhold the name of Jesus as was seen in the Ferguson press conference with the clergy.

Compromise is a sure fire way to keep God out of the affairs of man. Especially when you are ashamed to use the name that is above every name.

When you call on the Father in Jesus’ name, there is no shame. Because they are afraid to speak the name of Jesus, the Lord will deny them before the Father and the holy angels. When you fear man more than you fear God, it’s a revelation of the true god you serve. You may not like this, but I am not writing this to be liked.

The truth is what it is.

Deal with it.

 

Pulpit Whoremongers – Parishioner Whores

There probably was a time when the fear of God served as an incentive to abstain from the sins of the flesh.

Since the day the dispensation of grace entered, the devil uses the same old tactics to trip up the believer.

In the OT, Numbers chapters 19-25 revealed the reason why the children of Israel were stopped in the plains of Moab.

Sexual immorality.

According to the Lord Jesus in the Book of Revelation, Jesus revealed the reason behind Israel’s failure. Balak, king of Moab, was in fear of the children of Israel because of the other nations that were wiped off of the face of the earth. The Moabites were so fearful that they got physically sick. To know that you are about to be killed would probably make anyone sick.

Balak asked for the services of a seer. The double agent, Balaam. Balak paid a hefty diviner’s fee to get Balaam to get the God of heaven to curse the children of Israel. God told the prophet that He cannot reverse the blessing. Not that God would reverse it because a deeper reason as to why God wouldn’t curse Israel is before Him.

The Seed (the Lord Jesus) was determined by the plan and purpose of God to come through Abraham.

To curse the children of Abraham would mean the end of the plan of God to send the Seed to save man. Below this is the fact that the Lord, by His immutable counsel, blessed Abraham and God will not change His mind (Malachi 3:6).

To further pervert man, sexual immorality is the one thing that was used in an attempt to pervert the promise of the Seed as spoken by the Lord in Genesis 3:15.

Sexual perversion among pastors is still a major issue. More than ever, it is being addressed, but not regularly. It’s only when we read about another pastor falling into Secret and Overt Sexual Sins that we start talking about it.

In most of Paul’s writings, we see that he addressed it regularly.

Notice what he said in Ephesians 5:3-7 “But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.

For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.

Therefore do not be partakers with them.” 

The word “fornication, fornicator.” It means “whoremonger.”

Pathetically, pastors that are not disciplined in their private lives, will be exposed publicly.

The combination of pastoral whoredom and parishioner whores is still wreaking havoc in the church.

Just because there are other subjects to deal with, if we fail to keep a watch in this area, we will get into trouble.

Jesus said in Matthew 26:41, “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

If the disciples could fall asleep, there is no difference in falling into sexual sins. It is when we are not attentive to the moments of vulnerability that we fall into sin. Temptation comes at any time, however, it is when we are weak that temptation is at its strongest. The will to fight isn’t as potent. That’s why every opportunity of temptation is used to weaken your resistance.

Temptation is like a torture test.

Each drip is designed to break your will, where you just can’t resist that one hot looking man of woman. Sooner or later, if you are not careful, you will give in to this temptation and fall into sin. That’s why Jesus went to the place of prayer regularly. To avoid the place of falling into sin as a result of being tempted. The obedience He learned (see Hebrews 5:8 and Philippians 2:8), paid off and when it was time for Him to die, there would be no question about His resurrection.

The glory that He had before the foundation of the world would be restored to Him.

Just as Hebrews 12:2b said

“…who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

His obedience earned Him the name that is above every name, a seat at the right hand of God, and authority over everything in heaven, earth, and under the earth. Until all things are subdued and then the Father resumes as Lord of all according to 1 Corinthians 15.

There is no question about the ratio of men to women. Predominantly, more women are in church than men. Women are not the problem. Sexually immoral women are part of the problem. The combination of sexually immoral women and sexually immoral pastors raises the potential of a scandal. When it comes to scandals, it all started years ago when sexual inquisitiveness entered people at an early age.

For people, being married to one person is not enough. “Extramarital affairs” is really illegal sex on the side.

When pastors and female parishioners commit adultery and or fornication, they risk being denied entrance into the kingdom. As Paul said by the Spirit of God, “fornicators” have no inheritance in the kingdom of God.

They must repent of sin. It is evident that the kind of whoremonger is that of the world, however, what about those that practice fornication as a believer?

Were they a believer in the first place? Were they genuinely saved?

As Paul said in 2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? — unless indeed you are disqualified.”

Here’s how you examine yourselves.

Paul said in Ephesians 4:17-24 “This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.”

If you are walking like the world, your salvation is suspect. If you are giving yourselves over to lewdness, your salvation is suspect.

If you are coming to church looking to “score,” your salvation is suspect.

Level one sexual addiction is porn, masturbation, adultery, fornication, prostitution.

It takes obedience, faith to implement or apply the Word of God, and courage to abstain from sexual immorality.

Sack time with Sister Suzy-Q is the staircase to hell. Sack time with a preacher is not worth going to hell over.

That’s what people do not think would happen. That when a person commits sexual sins, they are still going to heaven.

Read carefully 1 John 2:15-17. And read Ephesians 5:3-7.

Matthew 7:21-23, Revelation 21:8, and Hebrews 13:4, while you are at it.

Hell is full of people that never repented of sexual immorality. They never judged themselves.

If you are a pulpit whoremonger or a parishioner whore, the Lord offers forgiveness when you repent.

There is no need to turn the house of prayer into a gentlemen’s club.

LGBT: SSM & Judicial Activism

“A judge overturned Missouri’s ban on same-sex marriage on Wednesday in a ruling that could add the state to a growing list of those were same-sex marriages are legal. St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison, who heard arguments on Sept. 29, determined the law is unconstitutional.”

More sin will envelope this country.

It’s judicial activism to declare that a ban on SSM is unconstitutional.

Thanks be to God that judges can’t overturn the Lord, and His Word.

Homosexuality is a sin. Just like adultery, fornication, lying, bisexuality, extortioners, drunkenness, sodomy, covetous, murderers, and mischievous revilers will not inherit the kingdom of God (see 1 Corinthians 6:9-10).

Earthly judges will be overturned by the Judge of all the earth, the Lord Jesus Christ.

As I have said before, this did not catch God by surprise.

John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”

While sinners are pursuing destroying this nation with more sin, God is still stretching out His hand to man through His Son.

While man runs from God, while they have blood running warm in their veins, and while they have air in their lungs, unrepentant man has a chance to reconsider their wicked ways.

That’s why it is important for the true church to keep the faith in Christ. Preach the gospel to all the world, and pray that they would turn from sin before death seals their fate.

The course of this world is set by the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience. Those that follow the ways of the wicked one must repent. Those that refuse to repent have been condemned already (see John 3:18-19). They can come out of their own condemnation when they come to the light of the glorious gospel.

As far as these judges are concerned, it is clear that sin is more important than righteousness.

Proverbs 18:5 says, “It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, or to overthrow the righteous in judgment.”

The ban of SSM was from the righteous. A judge overturns the will of the righteous in a show of partiality to the wicked.

“It is not good.”

Most people know that when unmarried couples engage in sex, the risks of STDs is there. With the sin of homosexuality, it’s common knowledge that STDs will happen. Nobody pays any attention to the the fact that sin brings forth death. As smart and intelligent as these judges are, it seems to all of us that no one is really concerned about the fact that the God of all the earth will pour out His judgment on sin.

And that consequential judgment comes when sin is committed.

God will not let the guilty go unpunished.

Judges that pervert the right ways of the Lord are not exempt.

Judges, out of all people, should know that when you are convicted of a crime, the punishment must be meted out.

These judges are doing the opposite.

They ignore the judgment that is to come in eternity so that people on earth could pursue sinful pleasure on earth.

Hence, the Judge of all the earth will now issue the punishment that men and women deserve for ignoring the Bible.

Judges are lawyers. So when they deal with law, they know what the law says. These lawyers spent thousands of dollars on learning the law. They are experts at crafting stories and asking questions to either smoke screen the truth or to get the truth.

There is no smoke screen with the Word of God.

The Bible said “The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

They say that crime doesn’t pay.

The Bible says “The wages of sin is death…”

Sin’s wages is death.

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, after this the judgment.” 

Whether you are an agnostic or an atheist, even they believe death is coming. The thing that they deliberately ignore is the Judge of all the earth.

You can ignore God all you want, He is not going to go away. And the judgment is not going to go away either.

So if death is true on one hand, judgment is true on the other.

So the only way out of judgment is repentance. The only way to avoid judgment is to ask the Lord for forgiveness of sins. To be born again by the Holy Spirit.

More activist judges will declare bans of SSM unconstitutional. More states will permit SSM. Eventually, the US Constitution will legalize SSM. The church will continue to pray to the God of heaven and earth. The church will continue to be faithful to the Lord of all the earth. The people of the Lord will continue to be a shining light for people in darkness. As long as the Lord tarries, the people of God will be the preserving salt in the earth.

The heart of deceitful and desperately wicked men and women will insist of their evil ways, but as the Bible says, the Lord will come with ten thousands of His saints to execute judgment on the earth. That will be a terrible day because God is gracious to man but His grace has an end date.

“Behold now is acceptable time. Behold now is the day of salvation.”

“How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?”

When the Lord sends His Son, it’s game over.

 

LGBT: AIDS And Elton John’s Words Of Folly

In a remarkable statement, it appears that “Wising up” to the AIDS pandemic is Elton John’s rally call.

Since the disease was first diagnosed and even before it was given the famous acronym AIDS, the “Gay Man’s Disease” has taken the lives of millions.

In the Bible, the cause is still the same.

Romans 1:26-27 “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”

When you still do the sin of homosexuality, the outcome is still the same.

To change the outcome, a man must repent and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. A man must be born again by the Holy Spirit. A man must abstain from sexual immorality. Searching for a cure is commendable, however, when a cure is found, it emboldens a man or a woman to pursue the sin that cause the disease in the first place.

Proverbs 1:7 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Proverbs 9:10-12 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, and years of life will be added to you. If you are wise, you are wise for yourself, and if you scoff, you will bear it alone.”

The fear of the Lord is the missing link.

When a man is not afraid of God, his heart is set to do evil continually.

Those that practice MSM consigned themselves to die, and so, with nothing to lose, they pursue their sins. With an “I don’t care” attitude, their hearts chase after sin. “Not caring” is a deliberate abandonment to hopelessness. But regardless of their hopelessness, there is still hope in the Lord Jesus Christ. As long as blood is running warm in your veins and there is air in your lungs, you still have a chance to repent and turn to Christ.

Romans 6:23 says, “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

To wise up means that you discontinue sin, put your faith and full trust on the Lord Jesus Christ to save you from your sins, and you live a life of holiness until it is over.

If you have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, do not give up on yourself.

Repent and come to the Lord. He will abundantly pardon you of all your sins. The time to do it is today because tomorrow is promised to no one.

Hebrews 2:3 tells us “How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?”

There is no other way to escape the wrath of God. That’s why the Lord sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to die for you and to carry your sins away. However, you must repent and be born again according to John 3:3.

Here is the link to the article regarding what Elton John said.

NO Fear To Sexually Sin Against God – The Absence Of The Terror Of The Lord

There comes a point in our lives when we sense that something bad is about to happen when we assume invincibility.”

We continue in sin because we willingly abuse 1 John 1:9.

“If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

1 John 3:6 says, “Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.”

For 33 years in masturbation, 10 of these years in pornography, I abused that verse of Scripture.

It became my hypocritical fall back position so that I would “seem” right when it would be time for me to preach and teach the Word of God.

Afterwards, I would resume the sexual addictive cycle of

1. Thoughts/fantasies.

2. Ritual/Provision for the flesh.

3. Acting Out Sexually.

4. Remorse.

There is a difference between remorse and repentance.

Remorse is about you being sorry that you got caught.

Repentance means godly sorrow that works repentance, leading to salvation not to be regretted...” (2 Corinthians 7:10). You fully grasp that you hurt the heart of the Lord in your sin. It means that you are done forever with that sin according to Proverbs 28:13. Remorse covers sins. Repentance removes sin far from you because you are in God (abiding in Him see John 15:1-8) and so near to God (see James 4:7-10).

Hebrews 12:1 says, “Let us lay aside every weight and the SIN that does so easily beset us…”

James 1:21 says, “Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.”

Do not get me wrong. God lovingly forgives us freely. That’s His nature. When we confess our sins, He is faithful and just, BUT when we treat God like a walking mat and walk all over the blood that was shed for us because we would not stop sinning, we do not have the terror of God in us.

In 2 Corinthians 5:9-11, Paul says, “Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences.”

The dispensation of grace has been so abused that we now hear convoluted teaching that we can sin and all our future sin is forgiven because Colossians 2:11-15 declares that God nailed the handwriting of ordinances against us to the cross of Christ. Past, present, and future sins are forgiven.

Many people have said as a result that….“God knows my heart.”

Yes, He does know your heart that it“…is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, Who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

Ecclesiastes 8:11-13, the Preacher said, “Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Though a sinner does evil a hundred times, and his days are prolonged, yet I surely know that it will be well with those who fear God, who fear before Him. But it will not be well with the wicked; nor will he prolong his days, which are as a shadow, because he does not fear before God.”

You have to ask yourself if you are a practitioner of lawlessness or not.

Because if you practice sin because you claim that you can’t control yourself, the Lord will tell you one thing.

“Depart from Me you who practice lawlessness.”

When you have the terror of God in you, you will not sin.

When you didn’t get judged for the last time you sinned, nothing happened, you feel that you could get away with it. Again, and again.

The endless cycle continues.

Why?

No fear of God in us.

Many have talked so much about the “fear of the Lord” as if it’s just the reverential, worshipful fear of God when we are in a church service.

After hearing Paul Washer preach on this, my perspective dramatically changed.

I already had a healthy fear of God like avoid the third rail on subway tracks. I already knew about the “flame of fire in the eyes of Jesus,” Revelation 1:14, 2:18, and 19:12. 

But to understand the fear or terror of God in the light of your sins is a different perspective.

As I was witnessing with the Abolitionist’s Agitation Signs of murdered babies, a lady was offended that a man would tell her about how to govern her right to choose. She claims to be a professed believer in Jesus, yet, she advocates the murder of babies. She told me that it’s between her and her God. It was bold and blasphemous.

How?

When you stand before the judgment seat of Christ, it is not going to be a Hollywood award ceremony.

Days later, I said to myself, she really do not want to stand before the Head of the Church, if she is genuinely saved, to give an account for what she just said. The flame in His eyes is not a light show. It is the anger and terror of God staring at you and penetrating your entire being. To the degree that you will understand, in no uncertain terms, that He is fully God and fully angry.

It is there, in the Flame of His eyes, that the good and the bad will be judged by Him of all believers that made it into the kingdom. It will be the place where all our deeds will be exposed and where we will render an account before God.

Paul said in Romans 14:10-12, “For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written: “As I live, says the Lord, Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.” So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.”

Then there is the judgment of our works. That is, the things that we believe that the Lord told us to do and built on top of the foundation.

Paul said in 1 Corinthians 3:10, “But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.”

The reason why believers sin so easily is that there is no terror in the eyes of people.

Paul said in Romans 3:10- 18, “As it is written:
“There is none righteous, no, not one;
There is none who understands;
There is none who seeks after God.
They have all turned aside;
They have together become unprofitable;
There is none who does good, no, not one.”
“Their throat is an open tomb;
With their tongues they have practiced deceit”;
“The poison of asps is under their lips”;
“Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.”
“Their feet are swift to shed blood;
Destruction and misery are in their ways;
And the way of peace they have not known.”
“There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

If we were really terrified of God, sin would be a quick thing of the past.

There are many people that do not like this kind of God. They would much rather have the loving, soft, forgiving God that understands that we are not perfect and that He understands that we make “mistakes.”

There is a vast different between making mistakes and deliberately sinning against God.

Many believe that this is “sledge hammer preaching.”

No, this is the very nature of God that we never preached about because all of us want to avoid turning people way from what the Bible clearly states.

We avoid these messages because as Todd Friel, Ray Comfort, and Tony Miano said we have erected a god that is not like the God of the Bible.

Many of us practiced idolatry and didn’t even know it. We have shied away from the awesome terrible God that brings judgment upon those that continue in sin. Grace cannot abound when we continue in sin (see Romans 6:1).

Paul tells us “That if we would judge ourselves we would not be judged.”

Every time folk in the church of Corinth took communion, they would get sick and some of them would die because they had failed to discern or fully understand the Lord’s Supper. This means that you understand clearly, and with all gravity that the Body and Blood of our Lord was sacrificed for our sins. To desecrate this celebration is blasphemous and worthy of judgment, up to and including death.

Therefore, we must preach the terror of the Lord because when you are not scared to sin, you will sin as easy as breathing air and drinking water. You will not think twice about going for it. But after you get a revelation of the terror of the Lord, we need to warn others to be very afraid because God is love, but He is also just, righteous, and holy, and God has zero tolerance for sin.

 

Holinessphobia: Yup, You’ve Read It Right!

Since we are called “homophobes,” I felt compelled to make up a word for LGBT.

Some will say that this is name calling and it is biased, bigoted, discriminant, and shameful.

Well, consider the fact that adulterers, fornicators, bisexuals, porno watchers, and hard core masturbators, or carnal Christians are holinessphobes too.

Sinners that claim to be in a Christ possess an irrational fear of righteousness.

My intent is to stir you to get you to really see the reality of who you are.

If you are offended, just know that the truth in the gospel deliberately offends people.

For what reason?

In hopes that you would see the wickedness of your ways and turn to the Lord in repentance.

Some will say that they would never preach this.

God is not asking you to.

God is commanding His preachers to stand boldly and proclaim the gospel. Everyone has been led to do things differently so let us not be found countermanding a method by God when it leads to provoking sinners to depart from sin and live in the fear of the Lord.

When the believers were called “Christians,” the intent was to apply a title of bias on those that followed Jesus. So true was the walk of the believers of the early church that “Christian” became a derogatory term that indicated that Jesus in the believer, was truly among those that decided to call it quits with sin.

That’s why you can’t call yourself a child of God and commit sin like the devil.

You can’t be both. You are either a child of God or a child of satan. You are known by your fruit (see Matthew 7:15-20).

The term Christians or Christian is recorded in three places.

Acts 11:26, Acts 26:28, and 1 Peter 4:16.

Christianity was a threat to the Roman government and especially to Israel.

Sin is a business but worse than a business, it is bondage to the prince of darkness. To break free of sin ruins the original plan of the god of this world. To take as many people to the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.

For so long, we have been accused of hating homosexuals which is the furthest thing from the truth.

But one thing is clear.

The Lord hates sin and in the Scriptures, God hates the wicked.

Psalm 11:5-7 says “The Lord tests the righteous,
But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.
Upon the wicked He will rain coals;
Fire and brimstone and a burning wind
Shall be the portion of their cup.
For the Lord is righteous,
He loves righteousness;
His countenance beholds the upright.”

Psalm 34:21 says, “Evil shall slay the wicked,
And those who hate the righteous shall be condemned.”

To remove yourselves from the hatred of God, you are commanded to repent.

Here is the new coined word.

‪#‎Holinessphobia‬: encompasses a deliberate, vehement intolerance for God, His Holy Word, and believers. An irrational fear of righteousness.”

While there is no real etymological basis for homophobia, it is the same for holinessphobia.

Does it cancel itself?

Certainly not!

Anyone that is in fear of the holiness of God has something more to be afraid of.

Paul said in Romans 1:18, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,”

Wrath is reserved for all who hate God and His Word. And then the Psalms reveal that “…those who hate the righteous shall be condemned.”

While God hates the wicked, He loves the sinner.

God is capable of both because He is God.

We move forward to the NT, and we see John 3:16.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”

No doubt, you believe it is a direct contradiction.

But it isn’t.

First, God is true to Himself, not to you.

Second, He has every right to hate those that hate Him (see John 15:18-25).

Third, God demonstrated His love towards you, in that He demonstrated His love for you by sending His Son to die for our sins.

Fourth, God has every right to send us all to hell because He created us with a free will. Adam deliberately defied the will of God and according to Galatians 3:22, God concluded all under sin according to the Scriptures.

The reason why God didn’t just judge Adam and Eve is because if He would have created another Adam and Eve (male and female), God would be back at square one. God is going through this one time, man is going through this one time, and the devil is going to go through this one time, never to be a terror ever again (see Ezekiel 28:19).

Man sinned, not God.

We are the ones that need to conform to His Son’s image. To repent. To ask God for His forgiveness. To be born again. To obey the commands written in the Word of God, willingly.

This is the bottom line.

So we need to fall on God’s mercy and receive the provision of salvation before it’s too late.

So, to avoid being a holinessphobe, just repent and ask the Lord to forgive you of all sin. There is nothing to be afraid about the holiness of God. The first rule of heaven is that God is holy. He is righteous. He is true.

Heaven is holy. Clean. Pure. Sinless.

In heaven, there is none of the woes of life. The pleasures of this world can’t compare to the pleasure of the Lord where there is peace, tranquility, and no death. No violence, no pain, no suffering. No STD’s and HIV/AIDS. No more seeking a cure to survive for a moment in time just to die.

In this life, we all must die, but in Christ, we can live again. Provided we accept the terms of the provision of salvation.

Death is the end of the line. The ride comes to a stop and everyone must depart.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23.

Jesus said these words in John 5:24-30, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.

For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself, and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth

—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.”

In hell, there is weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

There is heat, darkness, and fear.

The fear of never getting out.

All who pass through into hell MUST abandon all hope.

Once you pass away, there is no coming back.

Sad price to pay for being a holinessphobe.

Victoria Osteen: “Do It For Yourself”

I am off subject about sexual immorality in the church, however, the buzz this past week has been the statements that Victoria Osteen, wife of famed motivational speaker, Joel Osteen, made.

The direct quote from YouTube is below.

Then you have another person on a different YouTube video attempt to defend an indefensible position.

My response is not a personal attack on Mrs. Osteen. My response is a simple rebuttal of her statements from the Scriptures.

For it is in the correctly taught Scriptures that we find safety and security.

John 4:23-24 says, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Revelation 4:11 says, “You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.”

Colossians 1:15-18 says “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers.

All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.”

Romans 14:7:9 says “For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.

For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living.”

With these Scriptures, we were created for Him to please Him and not to please ourselves.

Hebrews 11:6 says, “For without faith it is impossible to please Him for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarded of those that diligently seek Him”

When you see the videos, you’re probably going to say, “What’s the big deal?”

The big deal is that for the last few years, statements have been made without harmonious Scripture, or they have been made out of context of Scripture that violate the basic or fundamental Biblical rule of interpreting the Scriptures.

2 Timothy 3:16 says “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

2 Timothy 2:15 says “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

We can readily determine that what Mrs. Osteen said did not come from the Spirit of God because the Spirit of God will never contradict Scripture or say anything contrary to the Scriptures because the Holy Spirit and the Word agrees. Therefore, Mrs. Osteen wrongly divided the word of truth.

In fact, she never used Scripture at all. The words came from the soul; intellect and emotional compartments, absent of the Spirit of God and concurring Scriptures.

1 John 5:6-8 says “This is He who came by water and blood — Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.

For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.

Because Jesus is the Word” (John 1:1), and because Jesus is “The Truth…” (John 14:6), and because the Holy Spirit is the “Spirit of truth,” and  because the Word that the Father gave for Jesus to speak is the truth “Sanctify them through Your truth, Your Word is truth,” (John 17:17), there is no way possible that Mrs. Osteen’s word is acceptable, neither should it be received.

When the Bible is wrongly divided, we give ourselves a license to make the Bible say what we want it to say. Hence, we are no different than followers of the world that follow the satanic bible that says, “DO AS THOU WILT.”

Also, a person must resist the temptation to “Be wise in their own opinion.”

In other words, never allow your opinion or words to supersede the Bible. So much so that your opinion is exalted above the Word of God.

Sadly, people will be gullible according to Proverbs 14:15.

A lot of folks will think that we are gang raping her with the Bible.

Let’s be clear.

This is not about jumping on her to score points.

This is about the continuity of Biblical accuracy of the presentation of the Scriptures.

When we fail to be accurate with the Scriptures, we are brought back to Genesis 3:1-4.

In Isaiah 28:9-10, revelation of the Scriptures is given by the Lord, “line upon line, precept upon precept….here and little, there a little.”

Why?

So that truth is correctly given.

Also, we must never defend error. Especially when the light of Scriptures comes to correct error. Sadly, people will defend an indefensible position and hold on to that position to their own peril. One of the most important reasons why people defend error is because they are emotionally attached to error that they will not receive correction to let it go.

Some would rather die before giving up their error.

Why?

It’s all about pride.

Humility and humbleness of mind prevents humiliation.

“Pride comes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

Pride is what got the devil kicked out of heaven and pride will kick us out too. When you are standing before thousands of people, you feel confident, powerful, and it’s an intoxication of power. When you believe that you are full of yourself, nothing that you say is wrong. There is a sense of invincibility and power that is demonic. Even though the video abruptly ended, I wondered if Joel Osteen corrected what Victoria said? This I highly doubt because I believe that it was a deliberate co-conspired event. Planned and executed with the agreement (applause) of the people.

Hence, Matthew 15:6-9.

“Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:
‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth,
And honor Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’

Paul told Timothy these words in 2 Timothy 4:2.
“Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

But for the last few years, we’ve been seeing 2 Timothy 4:3-4.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”

This is that time that Paul, by the Holy Spirit warned us about.

There is a deliberate departure from the truth embedded in God’s Word.

Why?

This is an overt plan to increase sin in the lives of believers which is part of the apostasy in the Body of Christ.

The more we depart from the Word, the more we justify sin in our lives. We make up the rules and live the way we want to live. Hence…

“…you are doing it for yourself, because that’s what makes God happy.”

The falling away of the believers is underway with a good head of steam. Anyone that is not willing to go with the crowd of error will be mocked and ridiculed as you will see in the video below Victoria Osteen’s.

If we fail to walk by the accuracy of the Scriptures, we are walking in great deception according to Proverbs 14:15.
