The world of today is revealing many confusing and outrageously blasphemous things! Many are the politically/socially incorrect conversations not to get involved in, homophobia tops the list.
Homosexuality creeped-in on the human race thousands of years ago, as seen in the time of Lot in Sodom(Genesis 19); … “5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.
9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door… 12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:
13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it.
14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.
15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.”
Since after the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and over time, many ‘famous’ political, intellectual and religious figures have been said to be secret and open homosexuals. Continually the heart of man remains depraved and stubbornly degenerate, the one who wants to walk with the Lord has to be on guard not to fall prey for the devil’s wiles in this age, pushing daily on the political front; various agendas that are obviously ANTI Christ. Anyone who supports this particular ‘freedom’ because of, lack of understanding the mechanism of life itself, shall perish as the Bible states. It is when we understand Satan’s modus operandi that we can hope to defeat him. It is not for nothing that the Bible says, “My people perish for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). The real operation of Satan and how man is helping him achieve his aim of trying to destroy the world are in two main folds; One, is subtlety in presentation of climbing societal, success ladder and allure of material gains, two is the harsh confrontation that if “you don’t join us”, you’ll suffer being ostracized and in some cases, viciously hurt.
Two very serious implications of joining the band wagon of SUPPORTERS of satanic agendas are; being swept by the strong aggressive currents of the flesh and emotions that only end in eternal damnation. Also standing in agreement with the one who calls the almighty God a LIAR! when a homosexual claims he was born that way. For one, he is calling God a liar because God’s injunction to “Be fruitful and increase in number” (Gen 1:28) is not possible with a same-sex marriage/relationship! Secondly, he is saying God is a partial judge since He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this same sin (Gen. 19:1-26). But then, since HE is not an author of confusion (1 Cor. 14:33) and HE is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34), they are the ones who must be wrong. What really happens is the fact that Satan and his demons (through the taking over of the homosexuals’ human bodies) ensure that these people have satisfying sex or even an orgasm during their first sexual experience with a same-sex partner. Thereafter, they would always relate satisfying sex with that first experience… thereby believing that, that is the only way to enjoy sex. Isn’t it a known fact that the sexual orientation and behaviour of a lot of people is largely determined by their first experience? Immediately you take that first decision, all you have done is invited a particular demon to in-dwell you and he will do his job to the utmost. And why is that? Very simple; the demons are very specialized in their operations. The particular weakness you tend towards determines the particular demon that will, in-dwell you. Once you make that decision, all that has happened is that you have given a particular demon residential permit or visa into your life.
Jesus Christ said in Rev. 3:20:
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.
He does not say “If any man hears my knock and opens the door”. He here equates His knock to His voice. Where is He “knocking”? – at the door of your heart! Jesus is talking to you. That is what is called conscience. Jesus Himself says He cannot barge into our lives; neither will He force you to obey Him. If He cannot force you to obey Him, it must be because you have an alternative master (Satan). This is what is known as free-will. Satan and his demons talking to you is what is called temptation
That is why the Bible in Romans 6:16 says:
Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?
When we obey Jesus Christ, we accept His lordship and allow Him operate in our lives. Hebrews 11:6 says:
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Or Matthew 17:20b saying:
if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
It was faith that helped David overpower Goliath. Or do you really think David defeated Goliath on-his- own? Or you think Goliath’s skull was paper thin for the stone to easily pierce through? No! No! No! David had allowed God to operate. Also, why do you think God so loved David that He called David “a man after His own heart” (1 Sam 13:14). His faith and righteousness allowed God to operate on earth. And as the servant of Elisha found out in 2 Kings 6:14-23, “those who are with us are more than those who are with them." Meaning, we have nothing to fear. So when you have faith, what you are really doing is empowering God to operate through or in you. That is how miracles come about and that is why faith is so important.
Have you noticed that Satan, his demons and his worshippers (the witch-doctors, witches, wizards, occultists, etc.) seem to get what they want to get done in our lives done and seemingly, whether we like it or not. The reason is not by way of their superior spiritual strength. It is wholly and totally caused by our faith in Satan. How is that? What we do not realise is the fact that fear (of Satan or any other spirit) is really faith in the power of that sipirit. Negative faith (fear), in relation to Satan no doubt, but faith all the same.
What you should always remember is the fact that “at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth” (Phil 2:10). If you ever wondered why the Bible didn’t say “must bow”, all you need do is refer to the story of the sons of Sceva (Acts 19:14-17). You have to have the right to use the Name of Jesus through righteous living.
It is all in the mind i.e. at the spiritual level. But then, you are the one ultimately responsible for making the choices and you have the right to tell Satan and his demons to go to hell (where they really belong).
In Uganda, before Yoweri Museveni signed the bill against homosexuality, he had asked doctors to give their medical perspective so he could make a decision. They insisted that homosexuality was a behavioural aberration; it is something learnt and not something anyone is born with. They are absolutely correct.
That is why the devil preys on the youths. They are vulnerable and zealous! When we want to understand this catch-them-young strategy, it is used in all kinds of aberration – sex, drugs, alcohol, smoking, and other destructive acts we seem not to be able to stop. The demons in-dwell you and keep giving you suggestions at the beginning but become more insistent when you are no longer able to help yourself by which time you are already addicted. The good news is “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you”. (James 4:7). You first have to submit to God and then the devil will flee from you. Why? The demon seeing he has no work to do at your end, leaves to look for other victims.
The final result of all this is death, (Romans 6:16, 23). Note that even the Archangel Michael could only use God’s Name to overcome Satan on Moses behalf (Jude 9). Will you have any Archangel pleading for you??? Make the necessary adjustments now. There is no repentance in the grave.
Why can’t we repent in the grave (i.e. after death)? Let us see what 1 Cor. 13:12 says:
”Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known”.
The Bible wants you to be able to declare that “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me”. (Gal 2:20)
Praise the Lord for the wisdom in His word for how we can live successful Christian lives!
