Kirk and Kanye will be doing a perverted “gospel” album.
When darkness has a hold on you, the effects are devastating. Looking at the face of Kirk, this Scripture comes to mind.
Proverbs 13:15b, “…the way of the transgressor is hard.”
I was attacked a couple of days ago. As I was looking at the News on my iPhone and a porn site popped up twice. I was prepared to always look away and I immediately deleted the site. satan is not going to get me ever again to click a site to intentionally watch porn.
While there are many ways to head this attack off, I know that the Lord is strong and mighty in my life and that like Paul, “...nothing shall separate me from the love of God in Christ Jesus” (see Romans 8:31-39).
When you see the video, you will see no quoting of Scriptures by Kirk to support any of his statements. When you depart from God, the first thing that goes is the Word of God.
The Word in Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision the people perish.”
You are either involved in the sin of homosexuality, or you are still in porn and masturbation, or both. It’s debatable, but one pastor told me that masturbation is the door to homosexuality.
Here is the reason.
On August 28,1963, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King made one of the most profound speeches in history.
The “I Have A Dream” speech.
History will reveal that Dr. King preached this message before August 28, 1963.
The last time he would preach this message, it would be the one that would ring on every mountain side.
Five years later, Dr. King would talk about “I’ve been to the mountain top.”
Sadly, he was assassinated the day after his prophetic declaration.
Little did he realize that further down the road off the mountain top, LGBT would later hijack the Civil Rights message.
I was four months shy of my 2nd birthday at the time Dr. King made that remarkable speech, but thank God that it was recorded.
Looking back at these historical words, we see the dream unfold.
“And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and ever city, we will be able speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestant and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
Pathetically, LGBT had a dream too.
Please note that no where do we see “sexual orientation” in Dr. King’s speech.
The deliberate hijacking of August 28, 1963 is a further blatant attempt by LGBT to suppress the true meaning of Civil Rights. It also underscores the deliberate grand larceny of a day that has more to do about race than the sin of homosexuality.
No where in this speech do we see anything that has to do with the sin of homosexuality. It further underscores the desperation on the part of LGBT to legitimize the sin of homosexuality.
It is amazing that LGBT, without hesitation, twisted and convoluted the true meaning of Civil Rights. It’s as if they believe that they have a right to rewrite history. So much so that these words and the life of MLK now mean that to speak against the sin of homosexuality is on par with racism, discrimination, and bigotry.
A dangerous precedent has emerged.
The criminalization of righteousness and the decriminalization of sexual sins.
Isaiah 5:20 says,
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
What crime, you ask?
The crime against God’s righteous and holy standard.
Sadly, the current African American generation, also known as the descendants of slaves, never seen it coming. Instead of seeing sin for what it is, hook, line, and sinker, they’ve accepted the bait, the hook is firmly in the mouth of the fish, and the majority of Black people are in the frying pan of HIV/AIDS. You do not have to have the disease in your body to be destroyed. All you need to do is agree with the sin of homosexuality and it is no different until you get healed by the redeeming power of Jesus.
Not to mention the obvious fact that the systematic destruction of the African American child in the womb called abortion by the hands of Planned Abortionhood, makes this two pronged death attack a clear and present danger to all African Americans.
So far, the NAACP, and other former Civil Rights organizations (you’ve read it right FORMER), is complicit and culpable in handing our unborn generation and current generation a bunch of lies to systematically and deliberately kill us off.
The truth is too much for many to bear.
President Obama can’t handle the truth. Because if he could handle the truth, he would make his eight years in office, the most productive years of his presidency to right the wrongs that currently decimate our communities.
At the root of all lies is the devil himself. After fighting to gain any kind of rights to live free, these rights are now perverted and without question, we remain the targets of demonic destruction until we are made new in Christ.
That’s why the world doesn’t mind if we prosper, have fun in church, jump shout and scream and call it the Holy Ghost. All the while, we are listening to destructive Hip Hop music, clubbing, watching porn and masturbating. We are bringing our out of control behaviors into the house of the Lord and the pastors are joining in the party, if not leading it.
We have forsaken the Lord and the Lord, being true to His Word, has departed some of these houses. We have allowed Oprah Winfrey’s Life Class to indoctrinate us and sadly, no one is taking a stand against it. It is clear that we cannot trust most of our African American TV preachers because we have yet to see them address these atrocities and bring to bear the Word of God on their own lives.
The money that they are bringing in transcends preaching and living the Word of God the way that the Head of the Church intended.
Then there is the small local church that never grows to the size of a mega church that have pastors that live and preach any kind of way. The people live the way they want to live and the Lord is not pleased.
Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;
But happy is he who keeps the law.”
The Amplified Bible says,
“Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man] —blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he.”
Notice in parenthesis “no redemptive revelation of God.”
When there is a deliberate exodus of the redemption of God, you are literally blind. You can’t see your way out of things, much less see what is coming.
When you are involved in sin, you can’t see because of the darkness in your heart. Therefore, this darkness that abides in us makes us incompetent and disqualified to speak the Word of life into our communities.
Now look back up at the latter end of Dr. King’s speech. Notice that sexual orientation is no where listed. From top to bottom, it is about the blatant racism that exists in a society that claims to be the land of the free and the home of the brave. In a society that looks at all men as equal.
Since when sexuality is a race? Since when sexuality is an orientation? If anything, the sin of homosexuality is just a bedroom sexual sin that somehow ascended to race or a class of people. Sadly, some black folk are not as smart and took the lie of the devil without questioning it. No different than Eve being deceived.
Are we that ignorant? Sure enough. So ignorant that if Bible believing, God fearing African Americans speak up against this hijacking, we are given a history lesson by proponents of LGBT and they are not qualified to give any lessons on Civil Rights.
Americans are free to do whatever they want to do. But when you want to raise a sexuality to the level of Civil Rights, it is just another means of perverting the original intent of Civil Rights to begin with.
So what we see here is another means of oppressing Black people. First, steal Civil Rights and then, hijack the drum major of justice. Let me add something that is of tremendous importance.
There is no question that Dr. King used some of Gandi’s material on non violence, however, some of Gandi’s propaganda goes cross wise with the Word of God.
Moses didn’t need the magicians of Egypt. As you well know, Moses was taught all the stuff about the Egyptians, including their magic but the Lord liberated Israel with ten plagues that countered everything that the Egyptian magicians had.
God needed no help from Gandi to speak into the heart and conscience of the American political system.
Paul said to Timothy…”Preach the Word!…”
All you need to do is preach the Word.
We are not looking for another Martin Luther King. We are looking for preachers of the gospel to assume the watch, stand on their post, and preach the Word. We need preachers everywhere to stand and live the Word in the face of compromise.
Your preacher friends will not like what you are doing.
In fact, they will ridicule you.
They will “preach” to you that you need not go against the establishment. They will warn you that they will walk away from you. They will remind you of the side your bread is buttered. In other words, they will no longer invite you to preach in their churches. They will stonewall you, blackball you, disenfranchise you, disassociate you, and ostracize you.
Sometimes, the rough side of the mountain is your only way. Most definitely, you have to make a break from the crooked plains of compromised preachers. If you are not outraged at anyone that stoop so low as to hijack the Civil Rights movement, you are still bound as a slave.
A slave to sin and a slave to LGBT and Planned Abortionhood.
On August 28, 2013, when people are uninvited because of their stand against the sin of homosexuality like Pastor Donnie McClurkin, it should have been a wake up call for African Americans that even our own people that are free of the sin of homosexuality would be discriminated against because of his declaration of freedom of the sin of homosexuality.
For freedom from sin is true freedom.
The fear of LGBT Is that others would make for the exits of the sin of homosexuality.
“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free ’?”
Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
If you really want to know the truth, you do not go to the lies that have held you bound. You go to the ones that were freed. You do not have to commit sin and remain in bondage. This is what this is about.
A white man once said that black preachers are some of the most powerful preachers on the earth. Yet, we see no power because black preachers are bound as a slave of sin. We see black preachers permitting sin in their lives with no fear of God before their eyes. We see black preachers still sitting outside in the outhouse instead of taking their rightful place in Christ in the house.
Until we exchange places. From the outhouse to the house of God in righteousness, the slavery mentality will remain. All according to the devil’s plan.
I too have a dream.
That one day black folk will wake up.
That we would no longer accept the lies of the world spewed out by LGBT. That we would see that the plan of the enemy is to destroy us, one by one. But his plan cannot work because of Jesus.
I too have a dream. That we would no longer allow sin to shape our communities.
For it is only by the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus that every enslaving yoke of bondage is broken.
His blood is enough to break every chain.
By the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ, this dream can be fulfilled when a person comes into a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is only by the blood of the sinless Lamb that we can be free at last!

There is a serious full court press to suppress the testimony of ex-homosexuals. It doesn’t matter if you are high profile or a person that remain to themselves. If you are an ex homosexual, you are a clear and present danger to the agenda of LGBT.
If you weren’t a threat or a clear and present danger, they wouldn’t say anything.
Pastor DL Foster of Witness Freedom Ministries called this “The ugly face of gay hate.”
Elder Raymond King of Securing Hope Ministry said…”Those who have been delivered from same-gender attraction are the Achilles-heel of the homosexual rights platform that’s based on this lie that once GLBT, always GLBT.”
My colleagues are saying “Tolerate our homosexuality, but we hate and refuse to tolerate your deliverance” and “Once a slave to the sin of homosexuality, always a slave to the sin of homosexuality.”
Pastor Donnie McClurkin, who pastors Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, NY, not New Jersey, as the Christian Post put out in error, was abruptly uninvited to attend and share in song at the Washington DC event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington DC.
Their blog wrote a comprehensive scenario that underscores a growing trend of the LGBT community laying claims on the late Civil Rights Leader, the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.
For the last few years, we have seen a dangerous trend of pursuing the legitimacy of the sin of homosexuals by any means necessary. From establishing their own false Christian denomination and network of LGBT churches, to legislative efforts, the LGBT agenda drivers know that the sin of homosexuality cannot stand alone to be legit.
The pursuit of legitimacy is like “Hamburger Helper.”
Sin is never legitimate in the eyes of God, His Holy Word, and His righteous saints.
We all know the devastating affects the sin of homosexuality has on the divine design of family according to Genesis 2:24.
Just like you cannot have chicken and eggs without a male and female chicken, the human race comes to an abrupt stop should perversion continue on a deliberate perilous course.
For Pastor McClurkin to be rejected once again because of the delivering power of Jesus Christ, underscores the blatant and deliberate attempt to silence those that were truly delivered.
Since challenging a person’s consistent testimony is futile, preventing them from appearing at live events is a desperate resort on the part of LGBT.
It is an outrage. However, we understand further that this strategy is no strange thing.
This is the outer fringes of a storm to attack anyone that, not only share the truth about the love of Jesus, but truly walks in the delivering power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. If your testimony is questionable, they would have put that up as part of the story.
But ex-homosexuals have a testimony that is undeniable, and LGBT knows it. Those that were delivered by Jesus is valid, verified, and consistent. There is no holes in their walk in the power of God. This holy display is dangerous to the agenda of LGBT because we know that within the ranks of LGBT, there’s a lot of people that is looking for someone to stand before them and share with boldness the delivering, gracious, forgiving power of the Holy Spirit.
There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain.
There are people that want to break free but they only need one person to stand and tell them that they could be free in Jesus. This abrupt un-invite is a regular thing with Pastor McClurkin.
Since his testimony of homosexuality and his personal divulging of a son born out of wedlock, God has taken his life and ministry into the place where God’s grace can work in people. There is more credibility and integrity that brings fear to demonic power.
A man of God once said….”A holy man is an awesome weapon in the hands of a holy God.”
This is the thing that LGBT fears. When a man or woman of God Come Clean, and begins to walk in such a way that is blameless, God will use them to reach others. God will put him or her in places where they are not supposed to be and be a blessing to the nations.
That not only is deliverance from sexual sins is possible, deliverance from anything that a person is in is possible.
For Jesus said,
“For with man it is impossible, but with God, all things ARE POSSIBLE.”
If you stay with man, it will never get done, but if you get to God, it will get done. It is possible to be delivered, just get to God.
We do not wish ill will to those bound in the lies and deceptions of LGBT. We still offer the delivering power of the Lord Jesus Christ to break every chain, dispel every lie, and dismantle every weapon formed against God’s people.
Regardless of any other un-invites, the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ will prevail mightily, in Jesus’ name and there is nothing that the god of this world, the prince of darkness, the spirit that now work in the children of disobedience, the father of all sinners can do to stop the delivering power of God.
Un-invite’s weapon shall not prosper.

I am concerned that Charisma Magazine is advertising MegaFest with TD Jakes and Oprah Winfrey’s demonically inspired “Life Class.”
I trust that you will not write this off and ignore the fact Oprah intentionally denounces Jesus, and supports the sin of homosexuality as well as porn.
Should a watered down response from Charisma come, I am prepared to take this to the next level that will sound the alarm that Charisma is in bed with false doctrine.
This is not a threat because the Lord and the integrity of the Christian faith is at stake. Any compromise openly underscores the apostasy that is evident in the world today in the Christian faith.
On her website, she has a pornography page regarding the use of porn by women.
As a Christian charismatic magazine, to advertise things that the Bible is clearly against, opens the door for many people that are caught in the whirlwind of porn to continue in sin.
Over 50% of pastors are involved in the sin of porn and self gratification. That means 50% of the over 300,000 churches in America have pastors that intentionally watch porn.
I strongly urge you to remove the ad.
To be a friend of the world means to be an enemy of God. James 4:4.
Yours in Christ

When you talk about other ministers and their ministries, I find it very uncomfortable to do so because other ministers should never talk disparagingly about other ministers. However, in light of the truth, it is not about being malicious and it is not about jealousy of another “successful” preacher.
This video by EXMinistries with G. Craige Lewis and Tetuan Moffett is perhaps, the most detailed and painful pieces of exposing such ministers and their ministries that I have ever witnessed.
The facts and the truth is undeniable and if you were ever wondering whether or not to trust TD Jakes, Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Rick Warren, and any other compromised ministers, wonder no more.
After today, if you are still a “touch not mine anointed and do my prophets no harm” kind of believer, at the very end of this video, listen to G. Craige Lewis’ statement. Below is a link to this powerful show.
Many will say that this is extreme but when God demands no other gods to be before Him, and that we are to enter in by the straight and narrow, and that Jesus is the only way, when preachers depart this absolute…..
2 Corinthians 6:17 says, “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord.”
For a long time, I’ve been wrestling with this. I wrestle no more. If you are going to two step around this, I will disassociate you faster than the top of your eyelid hits the bottom. I will walk away from you quickly. I will not have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness and neither will I fellowship with co-conspirators of perversion.
At Megafest, Oprah Winfrey, the demonically inspired high priestess will be there. There is no question in my mind that many people will go there unsuspecting of her witchcraft and they will be filled with perversion. Many “so called” gospel artists will be there as well as worldly hip hop artists. But the killer behind this is what will take place behind the scenes. If the gospel artists and hip hop artists are going to be there, know for sure that drugs, sexual immorality, perversion, alcohol, prostitution, and homosexual hook ups will take place there.
In the hotel rooms, porn and masturbation thirsty pastors will be there. Many people will be under the spell of sexual immorality. If we could see the porn purchases for this Megafest and if we could find out how many pastors and believers will delve into it, it would make your head swim.
Some will say, that this is just non sense. This isn’t going to happen. Think again.
Four years ago, I said that I no longer put it past professed believers. No more benefit of the doubt. Professed believers are capable of any thing and every thing, at any time. We can worship like we’ve been in the presence of the Lord all our lives and snort cocaine. We can have hands raised to God and use these same hands to play with ourselves and masturbate.
That’s right. No holds barred. God is not pleased with this and just because you act holy on Sunday doesn’t mean you will be holy on Monday.
God never blessed this and like the prophet said to Asa, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly…..”
When TD Jakes brought in Oprah Winfrey to teach her demonically inspired “Life Class,” you are opening the door to seducing spirits and doctrine of devils.
The topic of discussion at the Life Class will be “Fatherlessness.” As commendable a topic as this is, sometimes you have to look behind the scenes to understand what else is at stake. When you are looking and listening to things without the Word of God, you need someone that “preaches.” What better person to bring or have on the stage than TD Jakes. This is called endorsement. You could either say something or say nothing. Your presence is an endorsement.
Oprah didn’t invite TD Jakes, Jakes invited Oprah however, we know who was running the show.
In a nut shell, how do you solve the problem with “fatherlessness?”
The Bible says, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
What does being born again have to do with this?
A lot. A person’s nature must change. The gospel is the power of God unto salvation. Fornicators and adulterers is responsible for a majority of children being fatherless. However, people will not come to the Savior. They will not come to the place where a person’s nature could be changed.
Correct me if I am wrong, but during the show, did we hear anything about a person’s nature being changed by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ? You see, when you do anything without God, everything is destined to fail. There may be some resolution, do not misunderstand me, but it is with man’s own graceless efforts. Man always want to do things without God. This is because man wants to make the rules and completely exclude the rule of God. This way, sin could be committed.
As long as we are on this planet and as long as fornication and adultery is still being committed, you will have more fatherlessness or worse. A child killed in the womb.
When you depend upon Oprah Winfrey to mesmerize the people away from God, as the prophet finished his sentence……“therefore from now on you shall have wars.”
The places where you thought you can climb out of will surround you. The people that were against you shall now prevail against you. The battles that you thought you’d win, and the victories you counted on will escape from you. The enemy was on the ropes but God will allow them to prevail against you. The defenses you thought were secure are now done away with. Your praise of God has turned into worship of idols. Your worship of God is now a worship of perversion.
Your connections to any hint of these people will drive you mad. Your evil pursuits are now your exposed agenda. Everything right about you in the past will mean nothing for the wrong your are now in.
Look at this video and judge for yourself.
IF you can easily push aside the fact that TD Jakes and all of them connected to false doctrine is still in the kingdom and preaching for God, I say to you that you have lost your ever living mind and you need to get saved. For the moment you exalt a man above God to protect any thing that God is against, you are an antichrist.
Look at this video.
There is a war against prayer that is intense. When there is a concerted effort to stop prayer, it is an indication that the devil is feeling the pressure in the heavenlies. When the IRS questioned conservative groups to see what they are praying, it is clear that the devil is attempting to stop prayer. Intimidation is being used to bring fear to the saints. When the child of God begin to take arms in the place of prayer, you are going to see a concerted effort of demonic forces come against the church to stop prayer.
When Secretary of the Navy, Ray Mabus announced that all pornography is to be removed from ships, shore installations, and all Navy Exchanges, this is a significant blow to the forces of darkness.
This underscores a tremendous victory to rid humans of some of the vilest forms of perversion known to man.
Prayer is what disrupted the ongoing problem of sexual assault in the Navy. Prayer is what will disrupt the ongoing problem of sexual perversion in the United States. If the saints would continue to pray, we will see victories like this everywhere.
It doesn’t mean that we walk away from one to do the other. We balance it all out as we are led by the Holy Spirit. We converse with the world and we pray.
When the Lord comes in vengeance to avenge all that the devil and his angels have done, and when the saints come with Him in glory, shed not a tear nor pity the devil and his angels.
To kill off the intercessors.
Even intercessors need intercessors.
They are called to go into the dark places of the realm of the spirit with the Holy Spirit to wrestle with the forces of darkness for the souls of men and women.
Because behind the scenes the war is intensifying. The saints that have fallen in battle are being replenished and if the battle is won or lost, it’s because we take up the battle or others fail to take up the battle.
That’s why there is a battle in the airwaves. The media has a stronghold in the minds of men to pervert their thinking. Even the child of God is caught in the warfare unknowingly. It is a major distraction to the child of God that fails to see that the enemy is doing everything necessary to stop you from hooking up with the Holy Spirit to pray.
These intercessors hold on to the horns of the altar because they see what God sees. The hear it by the Holy Spirit and begin to take hold of prayer. The Holy Spirit takes hold together against the forces of darkness and pulls them from their assignment.
Moses needed help and they came to his aid to hold up his arms until the will of God was completed.
Morality is lost because there are very few teachers that would defy the law to pray. God was removed from the schools when they banished teachers from leading prayer. I believe that prayer is on the verge of returning.
Prayer is what keeps the saints involved in the activities of the realm of the spirit to wrestle with the dark forces that come against the church.
Prayer is needed to intervene for those that can’t intervene for themselves. The God of prayer is looking for people willing to stand in the gap and see the hand of God move on earth like never before.
Brother Lonnie Poindexter, host American Family Radio with Star Parker, had asked Pastor DL Foster and I to share on the EX GAYS AFFIRMING CHURCH. If you are ever in the Washington D.C. area, you can listen to American Family Radio, http://urbanfamilytalk.com/ WDFX 98.3, Urban Family Communications.
I greatly appreciate the opportunity to share on American Family Radio.
Pastor DL Foster was on the show 06/10/2013 as well and there is no doubt that it was a good segment as we shared about EX GAY AFFIRMING CHURCHES.
Again, if you are interested, go to the Overcomer’s Network and be a part of this groundbreaking movement.
I appreciate Brother Lonnie who passionately shares his concerns about the African American family and it’s plight. Not only does he share these issues, but he is also a part of the solution to the issues that face us.
As Brother Lonnie shared we are coming together, with other pastors throughout the country, and that the Lord is bringing together a coalition of “Bull Elephants” to bring order into the communities. I might add, not as despots, but as true male shepherds and leaders to help people become who they need to become in God. We must return to the origin or the beginning. The book of Genesis means “beginnings” but it also means “origin” or “original.”
God has a specific original pattern for family and when we return to the origin of things, you will find that God was right all along.
Hence, in Prevailing Word, we started a series called “Bringing Order Back To The Family.”
This series was birthed out of hearing Brother Lonnie share the need for “Bull Elephants” to return to the “herd” and to bring order.
It is not enough to talk about problems unless you are involved in providing solutions. CURE is part of providing solutions and I urge all pastors to consider doing something to face the issues and crisis of our times.
As I have stated before, there is a two pronged attack against the African American community. Abortion and Homosexuality.
The LGBT agenda is a clear and present danger to families all across the US.
Since the political process has made it their business to systemically deplete our numbers, we have accepted the overt strategy without a fight. From our African American leadership, their silence, and their instruction to us to be silent is the poison of the devil that has crippled and paralyzed us. However, there are those that are breaking away from the pack and we are deliberately ignoring their orders. It is sad to watch in our neighborhoods, the mother and her child. You look on their ring finger, and there is no ring.
It doesn’t mean that they may not be married, but for all intents and purposes, the ring was a sense of pride for women. The wedding band represents that a husband is in her life. That she is secure and the child has a legitimate family in a father and mother that is married. Today the bedroom is cheapened. Males expect sex for free. The outcome is the same and every young woman is expected to be added to the statistics of families without male leadership.
The cause of all abortions is the sin of fornication and adultery, hence the root cause of fornication and adultery is the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. The unregenerate heart that deliberately sin against God and His Word is the core of the plight of our people, and all people as well.
We are faced with a crisis where many of our families are suffering from male leadership in the home.
A few days ago, Brother Lonnie shared about Bull Elephants on his FB page. He shared this out of watching his dad lead in tough times. It was a touching write up on Facebook and it underscores the fact that our youth is without strong male leadership. We are watching single parents raise males and that is not according to God’s order.
We have this all backwards. First come love. Then comes the carriage. Here comes momma with no marriage.
This is because there is a lack of spiritual leadership that address the real issues confronting the people that attend the church. Until there is a admission of a crisis, things will continue to decline for people. We have become so comfortable in our homes and churches that all we really care about is feeling good. Never mind the pain that disorder brings. As long as a preacher preaches good things to me and do not remind me about sin and it’s consequences, all is well.
The devil doesn’t care if we have church. He is only concerned when we become what Jesus intended all along.
In our people that attend church in the past, there was a quality of caring and morals that helped most families through certain crisis. It wasn’t perfect and families were perfect. Families were never perfect after the fall, but the thing that is lacking today is the fact that people forget God. In the families of old, when there was trouble in the home, some were smart enough to find the Bible, pray, and seek the face of God for solutions.
Today, when there is a problem in the home, we resort to time wasters and distractions to get through life’s issues.
If we are struggling, we resort to the bottle, sex, homosexuality, drugs or use all of the above. Instead of being sober and find the right kind of help, we stray into the wrong kind of help and compound our issues.
Proverbs 4:23 says to “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”
Male leadership in the home is the missing link, but I want to rephrase this a little bit. Godly male leadership in the home.
The Lord dropped this in my spirit when we were attending our nephew’s graduation.
With God you will succeed. Without God you must fail.
One of the things that is required in male leadership is that he must know God. A male could be a great provider, love his family, takes care of his wife, and do everything that is required in leading the home. Commendable, but when he doesn’t know the Lord, it is for nothing.
“What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and lose his own soul?”
Jesus said this to the people after the young man wanted Jesus to order his brother to give his share of the inheritance to him. You can do great things in the home for your family but if you are doing it without the Lord, it is all for nothing. The man must lead by having the Lord lead his life. Things will happen in the family that a man by himself can never fix. A man with God and His Word will be able to get through tough times because he is looking to The Man, Christ Jesus.
Strong male leadership is not about being a despot or a dictator. It is about providing wisdom on a moment’s notice. It is about being decisive with the wisdom of God. It is about being there for the children. It is about making sure that God is at the foundation of everything we do. It is about a man submitting to the rule of God in His Word when the temptations and snares of life is about to overwhelm him to make bad decisions.
When a man is out of place. The woman is out of place, the children are misplaced, and God is replaced.
If we fail to get back in place, we are in disorder and the devil is the author of confusion, disruption, and destruction. IF we fail to get back in place, we can never expect family to function the way that God intended.
The Bull Elephant must return to lead the family. Godly male leadership is what will turn things around. Politicians have no business telling us how to rear our family. They are out of bounds. As the late president Ronald Reagan said, “Government is not the solution to the problem. Government is the problem.”
Today, these words ring true. The deliberate intentional intrusion into the privacy of the home has led to create an atmosphere of distrust. Sadly, the LGBT community has effectively used government to impose legislation that challenges our right to free speech, imposed acceptance of the sin of homosexuality, and legislated the systematic killing of the child from the womb. These things are detrimental to family. In certain states, they have gone as far as legislating curriculum to teach homosexuality to all age groups.
They are teaching our your children without parental consent.
Our silence is permission and when we fail to speak up, or when we are told to be quiet, we are permitting our own destruction.
What are we to do?
Find ways to get involved.
Community workshops, political involvement. Above all, the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ that becomes relevant to the issues confronting us today. The leaders of the Civil Rights movement were young but they were bold and daring. They had strength and courage to confront the woes that plagued all people. We are faced with the same crisis but with a different agenda. We must get something done or we will watch, with eyes wide open, the death of all people through demonic agendas.
We are lacking male leadership and until we make a change, we will sit at home and just complain about it, and this is exactly what the world doesn’t mind. When we make a decision to step out of the safety of our homes and churches to make a difference, it takes courage and strength. Preaching used to be easy but now, we are faced with a crisis that demands preaching, and living the Word on a different dimension. A different level. A different culture and environment is before us and God always had a Word for the generation that strayed from the faith.
God always had a plan for each generation.
As always, the Lord never failed. The government may think it can do what it wants, but when the will of God is declared, there is nothing that no man could do. He said through the prophet Isaiah, “I will do all My pleasure.”
Make no mistake about it. To stop the hand of God is a death sentence unless there is repentance.
As one song states, “Your arms are too short to box with God.”
With pastors that are living on the side lines, the problem is, you know you heard from God, what are you and I going to do about it?
As long as this is not a crisis to you, you and I are status quo minded people, and we are deserving of death.
