This morning I woke up, said a few prayers, had a cup of coffee and then sat down to review my Facebook page. I often do this to see what inspirational quotes others have posted for encouragement and enlightenment. Well this morning, I enjoyed several of the posting until I saw one about an upcoming church anniversary. I am always delighted to see church accomplishments and what special ceremonies they are having. Well this one particular post left me a tad bit confused. I read the post several times, the pastors’ names several times and looked at the picture many times over. Here is where my confusion stepped in, the picture was of two men standing together, both with the same last name and titled as the pastors of the church. In my denial, I said this must be two brothers co-pastoring a church but I began to read the comments and it became clear to me that this was a homosexual couple who are pastoring a church and celebrating the anniversary of their church. This disturbed me, I wondered has the church ventured so far into the world’s way of doing things that we allow this and celebrate it. How dare they mock the ministerial call that God places on His people to perfect the saints and edify the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:12KJV). These two men are blatantly living in sin preaching to God’s people their rendition of the word. I say their rendition because even if they are preaching directly from the Bible, their actions are teaching sin. It does not matter what comes from their mouths because people learn from the actions of the ones they are connected to. The old saying, “Birds of a feather flock together”, who is attracted to this church, those that are like the pastors of this church. This spirit of homosexuality is spreading like cancer throughout the church and it is men like this that say it’s ok, when the word of God clearly says it is not (Romans 1:2-29,32KJV) and the word clearly says they are worthy of death along with those that know and indirectly agree. This sin is an abomination (Leviticus 28:22KJV) and it is time that we as Christians stand up and say this is wrong and against the will of God. People who are looking to ministers for godly wisdom, will be confused about who God really is by looking to these men for counsel. How dare these men and those alike lead hungry people down a road of destruction and to a life that will give them hell on earth! This lifestyle leads to sickness, generational curses and ultimately death in the physically body as well as spiritually dying daily. We as Christians have not blown our trumpets loud enough to make anyone turn around and say maybe I’m wrong. The pastor’s job is to lead people into a life of holiness. We don’t condemn but our message should lead to conviction in the people’s heart where they feel a sense of guilt and they want to live differently and do better. How are you going to tell someone to live holy when you are not living according to the word of God? You have no creditability in that area. This church is opening doors for lies, strife, thieves, killings, fornication, idolatry etc. there can be no holiness if the head is not holy. What manner of church is this?
I pray for these pastors and the homosexuals of the world who believe that God is accepting of this lifestyle, He is not! Being called apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists and pastors we are called to a higher standard than the rest of the world because we have accepted this calling and God is expecting you to live Holy as He is Holy. We should be a light in a darkened world, we stand up for what the word says and with confidence and boldness we say “You are wrong because the Word says you are wrong”. We don’t just give in to what society says because it attracts people to our churches or our conferences. We believe God as our source while we speak truth regardless. Today many ministers are living their lives just like everybody else. Some are doing reality shows, endorsing medication instead of healing scriptures and stepping into the political arena among many other carnal ventures. Unfortunately these pastors are leading people away from Christ instead of leading them to Christ. The book of Jeremiah warns the pastors who are leading the sheep astray by false prophesy and false teachings. God has warned against this behavior in His word and through His prophets, those that are not listening, woe unto them the wrath of God. The offering and sacrifices of pastors will not be honored by God. The good works will not be accepted because the church is tainted because of unrighteous living. These pastors have refused to listen to correction and instruction from God or godly counsel now they are in the hands of the enemy. The people are being raped because they have given these ungodly, unrighteous men control of their lives and Satan will continue to have dominion in the lives of these people. Homosexual pastors attract homosexual people with a need for acceptance. God is not pleased with either of you.
Righteous pastors beware of people sitting among your congregation waiting for an opportunity to rise up and take over. These sleepers are looking for people to latch on to in order to influence them into a lifestyle of sin. It is time for you to arise and take your rightful place against this spirit of homosexuality in your church, don’t accept it by calling it love. Love is telling people the truth. You love your people enough to teach them that being holy is a lifestyle and it is achievable. God says “ye shall be holy; for I am holy” (Lev 11:44), He would not have said it if it can’t be done. Love wants the very best for others, it is not sitting back allowing them to continue down the path of hell and damnation. God has grace on the lives of those that want to do right and He loves all of us but that doesn’t mean that He is at all pleased with all our actions. Stop telling people that they are born this way and God understands. This is sin and it is an abomination, along with adultery, murder and fornication. I will not question whether God called these men to be pastors but I will say that they are choosing to live this lifestyle because God did not call them to be homosexual pastors to the homosexual community. I will say that they may be called to lead people out of homosexuality because when they get the revelation that homosexuality is a sin and they walk out of this with victory as two men ordained by God they will have a testimony as me and many others who have been delivered and freed from this oppression.
I have never been more heartbroken for our young people who are encouraged to explore homosexuality and to accept these feelings that Satan has exposed them to. Television, radio, family members have all played a part leading our youth away from God toward a life of sin. We as a church must take our young people back and open our mouths shouting from mountain tops that this is wrong and is not the way of the righteous.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
