Mayor of NYC DeBlasio is another puppet on the strings of the homosexual puppet masters.
Should this law pass in NYC, and because of a very powerful liberal left wing base, every business will be commanded by Nebuchadnezzar to bow down to this statue when the music plays or face fines up to $250,000. The Republican opposition is in bed with them so it is a one party system in NY and NYC.
You see, a law is only powerful when it has teeth.
Money and jail is the teeth……of Nebuchadnezzar.
Nebuchadnezzar used fire and lions as teeth and in both instances, he lost to God.
God will never let the devil win. And even if martyrdom occurs, God is still on the throne and He still wins. Our deaths never result in demonic victories. Our imprisonment never results in God losing. For the cause of Christ wins triumphantly.
If Christ weren’t a threat to sin, there would be no need to make any laws to stop righteousness and facilitate sin.
Well since this is the only teeth they have, it cannot reach into heaven to bite God.
Transgenderism has no merit just as homosexuality, adultery, fornication, and bisexuality has no teeth.
Just let it be known that if a law does pass in NYC, the true church will never bow to it.
We will defiantly oppose any law and vehemently condemn any man made madness laws that commands us to violate the Word of God.
The Bible says, “God created them male and female.”
I refuse to allow a law and a fine to force me to choose to be unfaithful to God and His Word.
God made you a male, not the mayor or any of his homosexual puppet masters. So you will be addressed based on what you were born with. When you came into the world, you didn’t have a gender choice. Surgery didn’t forfeit what God did according to Genesis 1:26-27 and Isaiah 29:16.
I have God to answer to. I will not deny the Lord to appease the mayor, the governor, or the president. When I stand before the Lord, the mayor, governor, and the president will stand before the Lord too.
One by one, we will all render an account according to Romans 14:11-12.
I’ve already stated my position and when this law passes, they have stated their position.
In the end, they will all lose.
Count on it.
It’s guaranteed by the Word that the devil, and his children, and his angels are all on the losing side.

North Carolina and Mississippi boldly took stands against transgender bathrooms.
This disturbing trend cause x Hamster. com, a porn site to not do business in NC until further notice.
Welp……don’t let the door hitcha…….
FRC wrote an outstanding article that captures the sentiment.
Pornography is fuel or an accelerant to sexual predators, sex addicts, and sexual immoral people.
No one watches porn and not act out sexually in adultery, fornication, bisexuality, homosexuality, bestiality, and masturbation or solo sex.
I have yet to read in some of these articles why people watch porn.
Predominantly, it’s to masturbate off of it.
When we get to the truth about porn and reveal that masturbation is 100% involved, perhaps we can really put a dent in this sin.
While a person doesn’t need porn to masturbate, a person has so deeply involved him or herself with porn that it’s only sexual muscle memory.
Many believers in Jesus are trapped in masturbation.
Paul said in 2 Timothy 3 that men would be “lovers of themselves……without self control……lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.”
It’s not about controlling masturbation. It’s about eliminating it from your life.
As Dr, Mark Laaser asked, “Can you do without sex and masturbation?”
This is a loaded question that will get many people riled up.
Here is one loophole that many men and women use.
There is no Scripture that prohibits masturbation.
Many will defend the practice of masturbation to their last dying breath. Many will argue that there is no Scripture prohibiting the practice of masturbation. But I defy anyone to find Scripture that permits the practice of masturbation.
I defy anyone to find Scripture where Jesus masturbated. Because if Jesus masturbated, and we are to be like Jesus, then that’s all the permission we need. But we all know that Jesus never masturbated.
Hebrews 4:15 “For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.”
2 Corinthians 5:21 “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
You can’t be the Lamb of God to take away the sin of the world if you are in sin yourself.
Pornography and masturbation are inseparable.
Only the grace and power of God can deliver a person from this associated sin.
Here is another thought.
Why would Paul do an extensive writing in Romans chapter 6 regarding yielding our members as “instruments of righteousness?”
Why would the Lord Jesus tell us that if we desire to follow Him, that we are to “…deny ourselves, take up our cross, and follow Him?”
Why would Paul say “Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not!”
Here is another loophole that many men and women use.
“I don’t look at porn and I don’t think about porn when I masturbate.”
For a while, I thought the same thing and I thought that it would be enough “permission” to continue the practice. But then the Holy Spirit in my spirit kept convicting me in my heart.
Remember “…the fruit of the Spirit is……self control?”
Remember what Paul said, “All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient. All things are lawful for me but I will not be brought under the power of any.”
If you are under the power of masturbation, then you are not under the control of the Holy Spirit regarding the fruit of the Spirit called “self control.”
That’s one reason why you get convicted every time you masturbate.
Ephesians 4:30 says “And grieve (sadden) not the Holy Spirit.”
I used to masturbate and get this sad feeling that I did something wrong and I tried to suppress that feeling. Not realizing that the sad feeling was the Holy Spirit in my spirit expressing His outrage that I sinned against God. That God, the Holy Spirit was grieved; that I offended the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit will let you know that you’ve violated the will of God and the Word of God to abstain from the appearance of sin.
The only reason why we reason ourselves out of calling masturbation a sin is because we love it so much. “Lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God.”
When you came to Christ, you died. Your sin nature was crucified with Christ. You can’t love sin anymore. You must hate what God hates and love what God loves.
God hates porn and masturbation. God loves self control.
The sinful pleasure of masturbation has captured and imprisoned over 50% of preachers and 80% believers.
The statistics that you will see are under reported. Just like people with HIV/AIDS and other STDs. They are under reported because of the shame and stigma attached to sexual sins. The shame itself is the conviction of the Holy Spirit and the only remedy is repentance, asking the Lord for His forgiveness, and obedience to the Scriptures for the rest of your life.
You must obtain freedom based on the grace of God, expressed in the shed blood of Jesus.
You can’t be free and in bondage at the same time.
Just like Israel can’t be in Egypt and in the promised land at the same time.
Either you are free or you are bound.
You can’t be in Christ and into porn and masturbation.
Just like you can’t be a Christian and a homosexual.
Just like you can’t be a Christian and a adulterer.
Just like you can’t be a Christian and a fornicator.
Just like you can’t be a Christian and a bisexual.
The article from FRC regarding the porn site leaving North Carolina can be read here.
Men and women are struggling with porn and masturbation every day. Depending upon the frequency, some are drowning in the pool of the flesh and mind. Like a switch, whenever the mind thinks about sex, the body goes into making “…provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.” as you “…present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin.”
You are completely committed to satisfying the desires of your flesh and mind. The resumption of the quest to satisfy yourself overwhelms you, or more truthfully, you give yourself over to its lusts to control you.
You have seemingly repented (remorseful) in an flippant attempt to overcome that moment of transgression and the cycle or process to release sexual tension renews itself.
For you and millions of men and women, it’s just a matter of moments after orgasm that the desires of the flesh and mind recycles. Then it’s back to business as usual. The remorse is short lived. The “repentance” didn’t stick and hopelessness, over time, sets in.
The disciplining of the flesh and the mind is key to overcoming the sins of the flesh.
You have yet to learn how to establish limits, boundaries, and prohibited zones, and stick to it every time, every day, every moment.
The devil is not going to rest. The devil is not going to stop.
His sole purpose is to engulf your flesh and mind with evil passions, that when acted upon, you are tricked into believing that you will never break free. Or you love the sin of porn and masturbation that delusion and deception suppresses the truth in unrighteousness.
In either case, should you refuse to break free, the result is to take you to the pit of hell if your repentance isn’t for real (see Galatians 6:7-8 and Revelation 21:8).
Some of you already know that the Lord God destroyed the power of darkness when sin was placed on Jesus when He died on the cross. Sin has no dominion over Jesus because after sin was placed on Jesus, Jesus died. Just as Paul said in Romans 6, “sin has no more dominion over Him.”
Again, Paul reiterated that because we are in Christ, sin does not have dominion over us, therefore, we are not to allow ourselves to remain under the power of sin when sin’s power has been destroyed.
So how do you break free?
Jesus did the work (see John 8:36 and 2 Corinthians 5:21), but now you have to obey the Word of God on a regular basis to make the freedom from porn and masturbation stick.
When you are driving a vehicle, the stop signs and stop lights must be obeyed every time. We do not have a problem complying with stop signs and red lights.
It’s the same with the Word of God. To stay righteous, we must stop sinning.
How is this accomplished?
1. Daily prayer and study of the Word, and immediate application of the Word of God.
One of the main reasons why men and women fail to maintain their freedom is that they either refuse to establish a time to be before God (not just on Sundays). Or they do not have a set time of prayer, fasting, and the reading towards application of the Word of God. Another reason is that they refuse or deliberately disobey the Holy Spirit when He provides a way of escape according to 1 Corinthians 10:13.
Proverbs 4:23 says “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”
There must be a deliberate action of prayer and the application of the Word of God if you are going to keep yourself from falling into sin.
It’s called obedience.
OBEDIENCE TO PRAY
Psalm 27:8 says “When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
OBEDIENCE TO APPLY THE WORD
Psalm 119:9-11 says “How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.”
James 1: 22 says “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.“
2. The willingness to walk away from the pleasure of porn and masturbation.
The course called “Way To Purity” by Mike Cleveland of Setting Captives Free is the bench mark for helping men and women break free. While there are other courses that are available on the Internet to help a person break free from the cycle of porn and masturbation, this course works on the heart and helps establishes the discipline a man or a woman needs.
The love for the Lord must completely destroy the love for porn and masturbation.
If godly sorrow that works repentance is not working in you, your love for porn and masturbation is greater.
Two Scriptures come to mind.
Exodus 20:3-5 “You shall have no other gods before Me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image —any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God,”
And Matthew 6:21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
When you treasure porn and masturbation more than the Lord, you have erected a god, and you are bowing down to serve them, thus, making God a Jealous God. You are treasuring porn and masturbation and that’s where your heart is.
A few years ago, I took this course and completed it. It’s 60 days of lessons to re-establish sexual sobriety and deepening my relationship with the Lord. I will know how serious a person is when they take this course. An accountability partner is assigned to you. At the end of each lesson, a question is posed whether or not you’ve seen porn and masturbated.
The most difficult thing for a man or a woman to do is to stop masturbating.
The porn wasn’t that much of a problem because after the Lord showed my, by way of Pastor Roger Jamison, pastor of Sword of the Spirit Tabernacle in Brooklyn NY, which sites to go on to understand what is driving the porn industry. After gleaning from the information, I was able to comprehend what was behind porn. Obviously, the devil is behind pornography, but the inner workings of what is connected needed to be understood.
It would be November 2008 when I last observed porn and masturbated to pornography. On that day, the Lord said to me, “Is this what you do to Me after all the good I’ve done for you?”
That Word from God is what did it. The power of God in that Word helped me to break free of porn.
However, it was masturbation that would be the most difficult thing to break free from. I wasn’t ready to give it up because of the self imposed pleasure associated with masturbation.
The seemingly endless pleasure of being able to masturbate became the one bondage that always gave the false pleasure that you were having sex with that image; coupled with self pleasure. It was a bondage that needed to be broken.
With Setting Captives Free, the challenge to be honest with my answers and to report that I never watched porn or masturbated instilled within me the discipline to be holy before God.
When you have reached a point in your life that you want to be free, one of the first things that happens is that there is emotional excitement that you have finally broken free. It lasts a short time because the old habits of looking lustfully at women or men creeps back into your life. The glance turns into a stare, The stare turns into having sex in your mind with that person. The sex in the mind turns into acting out your lusts in masturbation.
To stop this habit, you have to be willing to cut off the access points to your heart of things that will trigger lust in your heart.
Two Scriptures come to mind.
Psalm 101:3 says “I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes…”
Matthew 6:22-23 says “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”
What you see and the intent of what you see determines whether your heart is full of light or full of darkness.
When you do not mind looking at certain shows that deliberately display depravity, it is a clear indication that you are giving yourself to wickedness. The devil takes a page out of God’s Word…..“The sower sows the word…”
Television (has a vision) shows are like seeds being sown in the heart. All it takes is for a little water, and then the seed grows.
Have you ever wondered why homosexuals accuse us of “Picking and Choosing Scripture?”
It’s because the sins of the homosexual are out in the open.
Jesus said for us to look for the signs of His imminent return in Luke 17:26-30 “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.
Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot:
They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.
Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”
Two major events combined as one event in the last days described as the days of the Son of Man.
Noah and the flood because of the perverse hearts of men. Lot and the raining of fire and brimstone because of the sin of homosexuality.
These are the days of the Son of Man, otherwise known as the year of our Lord. More on the days of the Son of Man in a moment.
They would love it if the spotlight were pointed elsewhere. But since their sin came out of the closet, they would rather for the spotlight of exposure to go away. So they begin to accuse the righteous of making a big deal about their vile, disgusting sin.
All we are doing is helping you to see that what you are doing is sin and there is freedom from that sin when you repent and believe the gospel to be born again. That light that was an enemy now becomes your friend to help you to see. We do not get pleasure in exposing the sin of the homosexual. We get pleasure out of the fact that when a homosexual turns from their sin and get saved, they are no longer on a path to hell but their names are written in the Lamb’s book of life by the shed blood of Jesus.
If you were in a burning building, would you want someone to save you before you perish?
The same principle applies right here.
Now the first rule of the Bible is clear.
The Bible works as a code book. Only those that seek the Lord, is born again, and seeks the truth will be allowed by the Holy Spirit to unlock truth.
Scripture Interprets Scripture.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God.
2 Timothy 3:15-16 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.”
According to Biblical Hermeneutics, “The part must be studied in light of the whole Scripture.”
An unwritten rule is clear. Never let sinners tell you what the Bible says. Sinners are incompetent and unqualified to handle the Scriptures because they do not know the Author of the Scriptures.
So the practicing homosexual argue about true believers taking certain Scriptures (picking and choosing) and making a “big deal about it.”
Case in point. The sin of homosexuality.
Leviticus 18:22 says, “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”
For many of those that do not understand how Scripture works, Leviticus 18:22 is a moral law.
The OT law was divided into 3 sections.
1. Ceremonial Law.
2. Dietary Law.
3. Moral Law.
Ceremonial Law and Dietary Law was done away with at the crucifixion of Christ.
Matthew 5:17-19 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.”
Jesus is the Only One that lived sinless according to the Law and when He died on the cross, He died as a Sacrifice for all of sinful man having fulfilled the Law, including never sinning any of it’s Moral Laws.
Jesus couldn’t take away the sin of the world if He sinned.
The resurrection of Jesus proved He fulfilled the Law.
Just look at your calendar. The year in particular. Something significant happened 2015 years ago.
The resurrection of Jesus. Since the resurrection of Jesus, these are known as the Year of Our Lord, which is the days of the Son of Man.
The OT was written in as much detail about what God required for the children of Israel because of these verses of Scripture.
“Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants.
You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled), lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you.
For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
‘Therefore you shall keep My ordinance, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves by them: I am the Lord your God.’”
Before the nation of Israel came into the land, there were other nations inhabiting the land.
The former tenants of that land did these and other abominations and the Lord did not want His people to have their evil, vile, wicked, and disgusting bad habits.
Is it wrong to murder?
Where did the law about murder come from?
So why do we have a problem with homosexuality?
Because homosexuals want to pick and choose what sins are not sins. Homosexuals want to declare righteousness as a sin and declare sin as righteousness (see Isaiah 5:20).
So practicing homosexuals are the ones that is really doing the “Picking and Choosing.”
What it has come to is that there is a deliberate attempt to control the language. If you control the language, you control the subject. If you put it out more often than the truth, the lie becomes the truth.
And when the truth comes, people will not know the difference. When the truth comes, there is a deliberate rejection of the truth as a lie and people remain blind.
For instance, because the sinner doesn’t know the Bible, the same Jesus that they claim to be loving, is only looked at as a Person who loves but when a Scripture comes to show that He will cast men and women into hell, they refute that by saying that “It’s not possible for a loving God to cast people into hell.”
Well here is what Jesus said.
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.”
In Ezekiel 18, the prophet said by the Holy Spirit…..“The soul that sins it shall die.”
Just like in the natural, when a person commits a crime, and is found guilty, they are sent to prison.
The principle works the same BUT in God, it’s eternal. It’s for keeps. There is no do over, second chances, purgatory, clemency, pardon, or parole.
“For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
So is Jesus lying? He is the same Jesus you claim that loves? Pick and Choose a way out of what He said.
Another good “Pick and Choose” moment is when they say that Jesus didn’t say anything about homosexuality.
John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God, the same was in the beginning with God..”
John 1:14 says “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”
The Greek word for “Word” is Logos. So Jesus is the Word of God made flesh or Personified. Or Jesus is the Word in Person. So when the Word in Leviticus 18:22-30 was given, because Jesus and the Father are One, who do you think gave the Law that homosexuality was an abomination?
Then there is the Book of Romans chapter 1 where the Word about the sin of homosexuality was given.
In Galatians chapter 1 and 2 Corinthians 12, Paul said he received the Scriptures by revelation of Jesus Christ.
Again, remember that the Word was inspired or breathed upon by the Holy Spirit.
Jesus gave Paul the Word about homosexuality.
But I don’t expect you to believe this because the Scriptures are spiritually discerned or understood. You need to be born again to understand that Jesus said a lot about the sin of homosexuality. And Jesus didn’t change His mind because the Father didn’t change His mind.
Jesus further underscores that marriage is between one male and one female in Matthew 19:4-5, reiterating Genesis 2:24.
Jesus never changed His mind because the Father never changed His mind.
Malachi 3:6 says “I am the Lord, I change not.”
Psalm 119:89 says “Forever, O Lord Your Word is settled in heaven.”
Jesus said in Matthew 24:35 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”
God reiterated His stand against the vile sin of homosexuality by raining fire and brimstone on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis chapters 18 and 19.
The two most vilest sins of man is homosexuality and zoophilia, also known as bestiality or sex with animals.
God calls it an abomination or as the Hebrew definition states………DISGUSTING!!!!!
So to recap…..these are the days of Noah and Lot in the days of the Son of Man.
Homosexuality is at the forefront of this generation.
The Scriptures are clear about the fact that homosexuality is a sin that is vile, disgusting, and detestable.
That the only deliverance from this sin is the sinless blood of Jesus.
And that if anyone turns away from this deliverance, they can expect to be paid for their work of sin according to Romans 6:23.
Finally, it’s the homosexuals that “pick and choose” to declare righteousness is vile and sin is good.
MegaFest 2015 in Dallas TX, headed by TD Jakes, will have Madea (Tyler Perry) as one of the headline performers. This deliberate act of having a crossdresser at his Megafest 2015, significantly and demonically contributes to the transgender agenda in the United States. Why not have Bruce Jenner be the headline attraction?
In Jakes’ statement regarding the SCOTUS decision, he said that the world will be the world and the church will be the church. How can the church be the church when the church acts just like the world?
If there was ever a time we need to be serious about the call of God to minister to the lost and dying in the world it is now. Especially after the SCOTUS ruling on SSM. Instead of not doing the things that pleases the world, we are found trying to get the world’s approval.
Pimppreacher.com has posted on their blog this ungodly display of sin in violation of Deuteronomy 22:5 coming from the Jakes’ camp. If having Jesus denying Oprah at last year’s MegaMess wasn’t enough, we see that the SCOTUS ruling wasn’t enough to shake him and other professed believers in the Dallas area to wake up.
Paul said in Ephesians 5:8-16 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.
For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
Paul said in Romans 13:11-14 “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand.
Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”
This open display of foolishness is putting many professed, backslidden believers to sleep. Just in time for the greatest event to perhaps occur in our lifetime.
The imminent return of the Lord.
For those of you that remember, Jakes had hands laid on him by Tyler Perry at the Potter’s House after he presented the Potter’s House with a 1 million dollar check. After some time elapsed, Tyler Perry announced that he would be a father out of wedlock.
So with Bishop Jakes being comfortable with a fornicating, crossdressing, Deuteronomy 22:5 violating, false hands laying professed believer, it gives the appearance that the entire church is ok with the sin of homosexuality and SSM (same sex marriage).
They may think that this is funny, all in good clean fun, and to learn life’s experiences.
God is not pleased. And God is not laughing.
Life’s experiences is not the best teacher. And while it is true that certain experiences in life will teach us something, there are other ways than the ways of the world to teach us how God can help people get out of sin, live in holiness, and prevail mightily over the devil.
Experience is not the best teacher.
If any of you preachers condone and defend this indefensible worldly party, your calling is now brought into serious question and highly suspect.
There is no question in my mind that the Lord has sent numerous prophets into the house to warn the Potter’s House. There is no question in my mind that the Lord has sent prophets to personally warn Jakes.
The Lord is gracious and slow to anger. Full of mercy. Gracious and Kind. But He is also God of justice, holiness, and righteousness. We all know that the Lord did not approve of this according to 2 Corinthians 6:14-18. We also know that many people will attempt to smooth this over. To try to “cover” TD Jakes’ indefensible position.
In fact, we know that many will demand that we leave this situation alone and let God judge him.
The same “gag order” that Oregon imposed on two believers found to be discriminant of homosexuals is seeking to gag the truth.
It isn’t happening.
Acts 5:29 says “But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”
I guess today, professed believers can’t see the big Mack truck with headlights coming down the road.
If you study the book of Revelation very carefully, in particular chapters 2 & 3, you will see that the Lord always warn the churches to repent before Jesus, the Head of the Church, removes the candlestick. The warning wasn’t the only thing that was to happen should they not repent.
The “stars” or messengers, (not angelic beings as some would believe because if the angelic being is in charge and is being judged, then I, as a pastor am off the hook in terms of being responsible), were to be held accountable.
A feeling is not the presence of God. You can fill the Potter’s House or any house with what may sound like God is in the building. But proof that God is in the building is by the separation it has from the ways of the world. I could be wrong but either the imminent snatching away of the candle is about to take place, or it has occurred, and they are just going through the motions.
This addition of Madea gives the appearance that the church is ok with the sin of homosexuality.
This gives the world more ammunition to call us a bunch of hypocrites.
Well, later for that.
Can you see why Jakes’ statement of not being “concerned” makes sense?
He wasn’t “concerned” because he is complicit with the back scenes agenda to put the church to sleep while the assault on the church continues. There is no cause for alarm. All is peaceful. All is well.
If you believe this then here is a couple of Scriptures to look at.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-10 “But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.
For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.
You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.
But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.”
Peter said in 2 Peter 3:3-4 “…knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”
We call for TD Jakes to repent and look closely in the Scriptures for Biblical justification for the madness that he is displaying to the world.
It brings into question whether or not Jakes knows or wants to know the Bible in this area.
Jakes’ deliberate actions to go crosswise of the Word of God is clearly an appearance that he was never among true believers. And if he was, he has strayed far from the basic principles of the Scriptures. Crossdressers violate the Word of God and he is contributing to a growing trend of adolescent boys questioning their gender.
He is contributing to the acceptance of transgender men and women which is the last stop on the homosexuality agenda. He is deliberately contributing to the transgender agenda circling the camp of the Girl Scouts where boys are permitted to declare their new gender of being a girl and join the Girl Scouts, where education or much rather indoctrination of homosexuality in the public school system is the thing to do.
Listen to the apostle of the Lamb, John.
1 John 2:18-19 “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.”
It has been said that we can disagree without being disagreeable……
Amos 3:3 says “Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?”
I find it difficult, and a violation of the convictions of the Scripture to agree and walk together with people that agree with sin. People and preachers that agree with upholding a person over the Scriptures has done one thing. Exalted the person above the teaching of the Scriptures.
My love for God transcends anyone’s ill fated position to protect any person that deliberately violate the Scriptures. I’d rather be jealous for the Lord than to harbor an ounce of support for someone that deliberately violates the Word of God with increased frequency.
I’d rather be judged by God to be disagreeable with you than to be disagreeable with God.
I make no concessions and no apologies.
Your bondage cannot be my baggage. Stay if you must, but I must leave you before I endanger my relationship with the Lord.
If you are about Jakes, have at it.
I am about the Lord and His everlasting irrefutable standard. Let me be judged as disagreeable. I’ll take my chances because the risk of not loving the Lord with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength is too great a risk.
It’s better to part ways than to force myself to walk in agreement with an un-Biblical, indefensible position.
The late David Wilkerson, author of Cross and The Switchblade, gave a prophetic word about the times we are living in. Shared back in 1973, it is about the things that came to pass today and the homosexual agenda that we are now seeing played out.
It was posted on FB and you can listen to this chilling word of the Lord here.
The report from Pimppreacher.com could be read here.
The Holy Spirit is speaking to many ministers and many have already taught from Romans 12:1-2.
For the true believers in Christ, we have the answer in the Word of God.
With all this trans…stuff going on we see that it’s an identity crisis that only the new birth in Christ can achieve.
Those like Bruce Jenner, that claim to be women, trapped in a man’s body, sadly accepted the lie from the devil.
In the heart is a person, yearning to be freed from sin and death.
Then there is Rachel Dolezal.
A black woman trapped inside a white body.
Another cry from the heart to be free.
With Rachel Dolezal now coming out as trans-racial, we see that there is a serious cry to be someone that they know they can’t be.
Everyone is looking to change something outwardly but they can’t change anything on the outside.
It’s the cry of the mind and flesh that it doesn’t like what it sees and demands a change. Little do they realize that they are crying to God to be changed but they refuse to come to God to be changed inwardly first.
Well, sin is responsible for that.
As long as the heart is dark, it will only look to the dark to find an answer that can only come from God.
For the believers in Christ, when we are in Christ, our bodies will not be transformed until the resurrection.
While we are in our bodies, we must be changed from within and then we are to obey the Word to change our minds.
Look at what Romans 12:1-2 says…
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be TRANSFORMED by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
But for an unbeliever to be TRANSFORMED, they must be TRANSLATED from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light.
Colossians 1:13-14 (KJV)
“Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:”
Everyone is being trans-world or trans-flesh when they need to be transformed in their spirit and then obey the Word to be transformed in the mind.
Being that this is talking to saints of God, let not the world dictate how we are to be.
By the renewing of your minds.
By taking heed to the Word of God and obeying the Word.
Proof of a transformed mind is when you take out of your mind the things of the world, and obey the Word of God.
Here is the Greek definition of TRANSFORMED.
g3339. μεταμορφόω metamorphoō; from 3326 and 3445; to transform (literally or figuratively, “metamorphose”):— change, transfigure, transform.
For those of you that are not a believer in the Lord, it’s only when you come out of the dark that you will see how much better it is to be in Jesus. The transformation that you are seeking will not take place under the knife.
You can nip and tuck flesh but sooner or later, that shell will deteriorate and eventually die.
The spirit within, should it not repent, will be alive forever. But if that spirit is not in Christ, it will be subject to eternal hell. The transformation requires that you give up your will to be in charge of you.
The thing that you are seeking the most is a change that can only come from God. The Lord God sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to die for your sins. When you accept His provisions for salvation, the Lord puts a new spirit within you.
2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away, behold, all things become new.”
You will continue to cry until your last breath until you give the Lord your life, or pass away into hell to be tormented forever.
The peace, joy, and happiness is only found in Christ when you give up control of your life to Him.
Even in Christ, life will not be perfect in this life. But with Christ, the Lord will help you every step of the way until it is time for you to step into perfection forever.
The perfection that we seek will never be found in being a transgender, transracial, trans-world or trans-flesh, i.e. conformed to the way the world thinks.
Changing the outside by medical means is not the change needed within.
The change needed within comes from repenting of sin, making Jesus your Lord, and be conformed to His image by obedience to the Word of God by grace. Unmerited or unearned favor.
“for by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourselves. It (grace) is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast.”
“…not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,”
It’s sought in the Lord. He alone can transform us as we respond to Him and His Word.
There is an interesting post that says that while we were paying attention to Bruce Jenner, other issues took place under our noses. Well, I know that millions of other things took place that we weren’t aware of that may or may not be detrimental to this country, but we all know that the subject of transgenderism is at the forefront.
Again, I want to remind you that transgenderism is the last stop of the ride regarding the vile sin of homosexuality.
Also, while the president put out the proclamation that June is LGBT month and the Supreme Court is about to release it’s ruling on June 18, 2015, this nation is in the balance.
While reading Dr. Michael Brown’s thoughts there was also a good writeup about Transgenderism that indicate facts that it is impossible for a man to become a woman and a woman to become a man.
Masculinity and feminism is at the heart of the issue of transgenderism.
It’s complicated but when you read this article, a better understanding is given.
Also, in this article, suicide rates increase for a few of those that reach the end of the line of transgenderism.
When there is no gold at the end of the rainbow, so to speak, those demons are taking you to the end of the line of life. There is no more to look forward to and they try to push you to end it all.
Plus, with the government and states attempting to cut off ways to help people recover from their lost quest to re-identify themselves, it puts an additional pressure of hopelessness on these people. They have been seeking help and they are being cut off from the right kind of help.
Cutting of conversion therapy is just a gag order on the power of the gospel.
As Paul said, “The Word of God is not chained.”
So when you read this article, let’s understand that Bruce, and many others are crying out for help.
We see them in the burning building and we must defy their laws to be there to help them with the power of the gospel.
God’s grace abounds more.
