We Must Not Allow The Dems To Replace Our Judeo/Christian Foundation


Yesterday I voiced my criticism for the magazine Christianity Today’s (CT) warped Christian values for supporting the removal of President Trump from Office in the post “The Galli Poppycock of Christianity Today”. TODAY I found a post written by Ron Edwards supporting authentic Christian values that CT seems to have forgotten in criticizing Trump – a proven supporter of Christianity since becoming POTUS.

We Must Not Allow The Dems To Replace Our Judeo/Christian Foundation

In the Bible, the word of God plainly states Thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his ox or his lamb, etc.  Though all sin is abhorrent to God almighty, He is gets especially torqued up about the abuse of children.  God is adamant about training up a child in the way he should go, so that he does not permanently wander into damnation.  Since the time predating the massive floods during the time of Noah, people of the dark left have always sought to harm children.  They understood, just as the leftists of today fully comprehend, that to bring about society’s destruction, simply ruin, corrupt, pervert and murder the children.  Even the chosen Jewish people of God had their periods of spiritual and moral devolution and sacrificed their children to an imaginary god called Molech.  They would literally force their own children to walk into a roaring fire, just to appease a fictitious god that does not exist.  It is stressful to watch police officers preventing parents from protecting little children from perverted transgender adults at libraries.  The perverts sit the young ones on their laps or lie with them on the floor while indoctrinating their fertile minds with utter filth.

 

When I was a little boy, I would hear the older folks exclaiming “just when I think it couldn’t get any worse, it does.”  Even though I am not old, I now find myself making the same statement with increasing regularity.  It is heartbreaking to witness how in the greatest nation ever formulated by man there are now, so-called human beings who want to force society into legalizing pedophilia.  Perhaps the number one reason the freaks are now so emboldened is because of a concerted effort to abolish the teaching of and adherence to good moral standards.  In fact, that is one of the noted Cloward/Piven strategies to as Aliobama put it, “To fundamentally transform America.”  Our Heavenly Father stated, “do not harm the children.”  For hundreds of years, the Islamists have systematically raped boys for sport.  During the Obama administration an American soldier got into deep trouble for rescuing an eleven year old boy from being raped in Afghanistan by adults.  The reason given was because it is their religious culture.

 

Today in the United States pedophiles are calling themselves “Minor Attracted Persons” and desire inclusion in the unnatural LGBTQ community. YIKES!! Pedophiles are rebranding themselves as “MAPS”, or minor attracted Persons”, all part of an evil effort to gain acceptance and to try to normalize their horrible desires in the minds of the increasing numbers of ignorant individuals.  According to Urban Dictionary, the blanket term MAP includes infantophiles (infants), pedophiles (pre-pubescent children), and ephebophiles (post-pubescent children).  Some MAPs or Non-offending Minor Attracted Persons”. These pedophiles seek to be a part of the LGBTQ gaggle of unnatural sexual practitioners, even going so far as to make a “Pride” flag for Gay Pride Month.

 

The Bible warned us that there would come a time when what’s right would be called wrong and what’s wrong would be called right.  At first, very quietly, but in recent years with an increasingly bold in your face attitude the Social “injustice” left has been working and lobbying to change the classification of pedophilia, from a deviant sin and mental illness, to a sexual orientation.  If you naively believe this type of leap is not possible, let’s not forget that until 1973, the American Psychiatric Association classified homosexuality as a mental illness.  But that was reversed after nonstop lobbying and leftist social pressure.  In 2018, the World Health Organization announced that they would no longer consider people who wanted to become transgender as a mental disorder, then changed it to an orientation.  Now ask yourself if you still believe it is impossible for the destructive leftists who run many organizations and boards won’t at least try to reclassify pedophilia as well.

 

“We The people” cannot stupidly sit on the sidelines, but must stand and push back against the evil darkness that would force society to accept adults raping babies.  It is wicked enough to still allow abortion murders, but to compound the evil being perpetrated against children via pedophile/child rapists would set our nation up for a justified punishment from our heavenly Creator.  It is my sincere prayer and belief that we Americans will soon return to the blessed principles enumerated in Holy Scripture.  For the word of God is the pathway to Life, liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.  For if we will not step up and protect those among us who cannot protect themselves, then we shall give up the right to even expect the blessings and protection of God who shed HIS grace upon the United States of America.  God bless you, God bless America and may America bless God.

Intro to ‘Trans-Faith Takes Over The Church…


Intro to ‘Trans-Faith Takes Over The Church: Transgender Pastors & Renaming Ceremonies’

Intro by John R. Houk

© October 1, 2019

 

If you are a Christian, you must have noticed how organized Church organizations are accepting or are being brainwashed into accepting sexual impurity as normal contrary to God’s Word expressed in the Holy Bible. You may have noticed so-called literary experts are making a reinterpretation Holy Scripture to mean something entirely different than the way Scripture has been interpreted for generations immemorial.

 

Unfortunately for those promoting sexual looseness of one form or another, the Bible warns there are consequences unless these ungodly reinterpretations are addressed. As to sexual immorality or sexual looseness, here are some Scriptures as noted in the first three chapters of the Book of Revelation – Revelation 1: 20; 2: 1-6, 12-15, 18-27 NKJV (Book of Revelation Explained and/or Introduction – Book of Revelation):

 

Revelation 1:20

 

20 The [a]mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the [b]angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands [c]which you saw are the seven churches.

 

Revelation 2:1-6

 

2 “To the [a]angel of the church of Ephesus write,

‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: “I know your works, your labor, your [b]patience, and that you cannot [c]bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

 

Revelation 2:12-15 The Compromising Church

 

12 “And to the [a]angel of the church in Pergamos write,

‘These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword: 13 “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. 14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. 15 Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, [b]which thing I hate.

 

Revelation 2:18-27 The Corrupt Church

 

18 “And to the [a]angel of the church in Thyatira write,

‘These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass: 19 “I know your works, love, [b]service, faith, and your [c]patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first. 20 Nevertheless I have [d]a few things against you, because you allow [e]that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, [f]to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. 21 And I gave her time to [g]repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. 22 Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of [h]their deeds. 23 I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches[i] the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.

 

24 “Now to you I say, [j]and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I [k]will put on you no other burden. 25 But hold fast what you have till I come. 26 And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—

 

27 ‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron;
They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’—

 

as I also have received from My Father;

 

When I became a young Christian in 1978, it would have been only in my wildest imagination the occurrences described above in Revelation could become normal. Much of the sexual immorality described is self-explanatory, but there are a couple terms that may be lost on present day Christians. Those terms are the doctrine of the Nicolaitans and the doctrine of Balaam. For clarity here are references on those terms:

 

Doctrine of Nicolaitans

 

Nicolaitans were one of the heretical sects that plagued the churches at Ephesus and at Pergamum, according to Revelation 2:6,15. Irenaeus identifies them as followers of Nicolas, one of the seven chosen in Acts 6, and as men who “lead lives of unrestrained indulgence”^[1]^. He also relates them to Gnosticism: “John, the disciple of the Lord, preaches this faith (the deity of Christ), and seeks, by the proclamation of the Gospel, to remove that error which by Cerinthus had been disseminated among men, and a long time previously by those termed Nicolaitans, who are an offset of that ‘knowledge’ falsely so called, that he might confound them, and persuade them that there is but one God, who made all things by His Word”^[2]^. There is also historical evidence of a Gnostic sect called Nitolaitans [Blog Editor: I am unsure if this is a misspelling of Nicolaitians or if “Nitolaitans” is a separate group] a century or so later.

 

The doctrine of the Nicolaitans appears to have been a form of antinomianism, which makes the fatal mistake that man can freely partake in sin because the Law of God is no longer binding. It held the truth on the gratuitous reckoning of righteousness; but supposed that a mere intellectual “belief” in this truth had a saving power.

 

Nicolaitans of the 2nd century seem to have continued and extended the views of the 1st century adherents, holding to the freedom of the flesh and sin, and teaching that the deeds of the flesh had no effect upon the health of the soul and consequently no relation to salvation.^[ [citation\ needed](Theopedia:Writing_guide#Reference_your_work)]^

Today, the doctrine is now largely taught that the gospel of Christ has made God’s law of no effect: that by “believing” we are released from the necessity of being doers of the Word. But this is the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which Christ so unsparingly condemned in the book of Revelation. (Nicolaitans; Theopedia)

 

Doctrine of Balaam (excerpted)

 

Right before the Jews entered the land of Canaan, they destroyed the kingdoms of Og, king of Bashan, and Sihon, king of the Amorites.  As a result, Balak, the king of Moab, outside of whose land the Jews were camped, feared an attack from the Jews against his country.  Thus, he hired a prophet named Balaam (Num 22:1-6) to curse the Jews, which he thought would give the Moabites an edge if they were to go to war.

 

Balaam blessed the Jews instead of cursing them (Num 23-24) and Balak was furious.  Consequently, Balak dismissed Balaam.  Nevertheless, before Balaam returned to his place (Num 24:25), he gave Balak counsel (Num 31:16) that caused the wrath of God to come against Israel.  He counseled Balak to let the daughters of Moab commit whoredom with the Jews and to get them to eat the things sacrificed to their idols (Num 25:1-3).

 

The outcome of this doctrine was disastrous.  Twenty four thousand Jews died in a plague that came as a consequence of their sin (Num 25:4-9).  The Jews had been forbidden to intermingle with the Moabites (Deut 23:3) and Balaam’s doctrine ran contrary to this command of God.  Even in Nehemiah’s day the Jews were forced to separate from their Moabite wives (Neh 13:1-2).

 

 

While we are on the study of Balaam’s doctrine we should also see that there is a WAY of Balaam and an ERROR of Balaam.  The way of Balaam is found in 2 Pet 2:14-15. Balaam coveted wages and chased the money.  In Num 22:7; 15-21, Balaam was offered money for his services, which was typical.  However, he wanted it so badly that he disobeyed the command of God after stating that he wouldn’t even if the reward were Balak’s house full of silver and gold (v18).  Thus covetousness will be the motive of the preachers who cause the folks in the tribulation to follow Balaam’s doctrine.

 

The error of Balaam is found in Jude 11.  It is simply that Balaam was against God’s chosen people like Cain was against his brother Abel.  Likewise, the antichrist and his followers will commit the same error.  They will fight against God’s chosen people to their own destruction, in the same way that Balaam was also destroyed (Num 31:8).

 

… (What is the doctrine of Balaam in Revelation 2:14? By Pastor Bevans Welder; Bible BelieversQuestions and Answers; 4/26/year-unsure)

 

Friends the institutional Church has been looking the other way for unwed couples to “live together” for decades (aka fornication), adultery though frowned upon is rarely rebuked in a Church setting (I mean, adultery seems nearly an epidemic among Ministers of the Gospel), killing babies to prevent unwanted births from promiscuous sex is rampant and so on.

 

NOW largely due to Leftist social proclivities and the LGBTQ Agenda, all the ungodly practices emanating from a LGBTQ lifestyle are sifting into normalcy into Christian Churches. Which leads me to the Prophecy News Watch title, “Trans-Faith Takes Over The Church: Transgender Pastors & Renaming Ceremonies”.

Trans-Faith Takes Over The Church: Transgender Pastors & Renaming Ceremonies

 

Trans-Clergy in Drag

September 30, 2019

By PNW Staff

Prophecy News Watch

 

A pandemic of perversion has engulfed our society as LGBTQ activists demand that we bow down at the altar of moral relativism. But, instead of providing clear Biblical answers to this cultural chaos, many churches have fallen in league with them by aligning the Gospel message to conform with this twisted mindset.

 

From non-binary deacons that refuse to accept that they are either men or women to hyper-sexual, church-sponsored drag shows, to transgender baptisms and renaming ceremonies, the assault on Biblical values has intensified.

 

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a message of compassion and salvation but, in some churches, that message has been warped to take the shape of explicit support and even promotion of gender confusion and sin rather than an ethic of faithful marriage between men and women.

 

The Bible sternly warns against leading little ones astray: “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew 18.6).

 

The Church of England, however, has instituted renaming ceremonies for the new identities/names of those confused individuals who have decided to identify as the opposite sex that God made them, including young children.

 

The UK’s mirror newspaper recently featured the story of a 7-year-old child who had recently ‘transitioned’ and the mother commented how important the church’s ‘rebaptism’ ceremony was in affirming this change, noting that the vicar was even wearing a silk rainbow scarf in support of LGBT rights during the ceremony.

 

The Church of England’s new pastoral guidance advises clergy to refer to transgender people by their new name. The guidance, which was voted on wasn’t even close, showing how far the Church of England has sunk. The vote was overwhelmingly in favor of the new ritual.

 

The House of Bishops came down 30-2 in favor with two abstentions, the House of Clergy voted its assent 127-28 with 16 clergy abstaining and the House of Laity showed 127 votes in favor with only 48 in opposition and 8 more marked as abstentions.

 

The guidance for the ceremony, while stopping short of calling it a baptism, details how elements including water and oil can be incorporated into the service as well as how the ‘candidates’ can be presented with gifts such as a Bible inscribed in their chosen name, or a certificate.

 

The guidance further notes: “For a trans-person to be addressed liturgically by the minister for the first time by their chosen name may be a powerful moment in the service”.

 

As a central part of the new service, called the Affirmation of Baptismal Faith, the minister lays hands on the candidate or candidates, addresses them by name, and prays for them. Whereas the Church is clear that this does not constitute a second baptism, it explains that the Affirmation of Baptismal Faith enables people to “renew the commitments made in baptism and in a public setting and provides space for those who have undergone a major transition to re-dedicate their life to Jesus Christ”.

The Anglican bishops declare their warrant for the new rite/adaptation to be an “unconditional affirmation”. Baptism, however, is not meant to be an “unconditional affirmation” but an act of obedience after one has responded to the call of repentance and conversion.

 

In fact, the Anglican ceremony specifically asks the candidate for baptism, “Do you turn away from sin? do you reject evil? do you trust Christ as Savior? do you trust Him as Lord?” Incredibly, under the new ritual the candidate is expected to answer “I do” to each question while, at the same time, ‘affirming’ to live just the opposite.

 

It is a warping of baptism to treat it as a celebration of “I’m OK, you’re OK” when the fundamental Christian message is that, absent the transforming grace of Jesus Christ, no one is “OK”.

 

A member of the same clergy that once presided over the coronation of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II, has now had the effrontery to ask the faithful to pray that her great-grandson, Prince George, age 6, might become a homosexual in order to increase tolerance for the LGBT community.

 

Earlier this year, Anglican clergy urged the British government to ban so-called “conversion therapy” for those with gender dysphoria, and announced their intention to attempt to recruit transgender clerics.

 

It should not surprise us that the youth are following the example of Church leadership.  The congregation of St. Matthew Trinity Lutheran Church in Hoboken, New Jersey now refer to their pastor as Peter. ‘Peter’, formerly Rose Beeson, was the center of one of the first renaming ceremonies in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

 

The ceremony, according to witnesses, was conducted in the same style as a christening or baptismal ceremony with the bishop blessing Beeson and pronouncing her newly-chosen name.

 

Some compared the renaming ceremony to what God had done with Abraham and Peter, a comparison that Beeson and her church would undoubtedly be quick to support. Voices in the liberal media, such as the Huffington Post, were quick to lend their support to such a radical expression of gender fluidity. But a closer study of the examples of Abraham and Peter reveal stark differences as opposed to Beeson’s case.

 

God commanded the change in Abraham’s name from Abram to Abraham as his new name meant “father of many” or “father of a multitude”. The name was God-given and an important symbol of God’s promise to Abraham as the father of a nation. Likewise, his wife Sarai became Sarah, “mother of nations.”

 

In the case of the apostle, Jesus gave Simon the surname Peter to distinguish him from many others having the name Simon, including the father of Judas Iscariot, as well as one of our Lord’s half-brothers, along with another Simon who was also one of the twelve apostles.

 

Jesus identified the name Peter with the confession that Simon had just made, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God”. It was upon this foundational ‘rock’ that Jesus would build His church.  (Matthew 16.16-18; John 8.24; 20.31; Acts 8.37; I John 4.15)

 

It is something altogether different to compare the change of Rose Beeson to Peter Beeson. Rose Beeson’s desire to change her name stems not from any incredible, divine calling but simply her own impulse to swap genders.

 

It should come as no surprise that we then also have another church leader who refuses to be identified as male or female.  Methodist Deacon M. Barclay is now accepted by his church as a non-binary Deacon in Chicago, which means that she prefers the pronoun “they” rather than “she” and doesn’t identify as either gender.

Deacon Barclay studied theology for 12 years and had originally tried to become a deacon in Texas but was rejected due to her personal and un-Biblical views on transgenderism. It was only after moving to Chicago that she was accepted into this leadership role, demonstrating the approval of the Methodist Church for transgenderism.

 

A member of any congregation struggling with gender identity confusion is understandable, but when that person both embraces this transgenderism and is elevated to the role of deacon, an entirely different message is sent, which is to say that the church and God support this lifestyle.

 

Methodist churches are not the only protestant denominations that are starting to welcome the gender-confused into leadership roles. First Baptist Church of Greenville began accepting LGBTQ ministers and weddings in 2015. It broke away from the Southern Baptist Convention in the 1990s but is now a part of Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.

 

Another Baptist church in Ohio this last summer called a transgender pastor to lead its church. Peace Community Church called Erica Saunders, a graduate of Wake Forest University School of Divinity, and then held an official welcoming service this month for Saunders, according to Baptist News Global.

 

The congregation was founded as First Baptist Church of Oberlin in July 1866 and is affiliated with the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America, the Association of Welcoming & Affirming Baptists, and the Alliance of Baptists. Saunders was promoted to the church as “one of the first openly trans-women ordained in Baptist life.” Saunders’ passions were featured as “preaching, the study of Christian origins and LGBTQ education and advocacy”.

 

Naturally, a church that approves of transgender leadership is going to indoctrinate its people with other pro-LGTBQ messages such as sponsoring Drag Shows in the church.

 

The Ames United Church of Christ in Iowa, which has considered itself open and affirming of LGBTQIA people since 2000, likes to hold these events on an annual basis.

 

Last year’s event, published on the church’s Facebook page, assured parents that there would be “adult supervision” for the drag queen and king contest as the youngsters dressed in drag and paraded around, skirting the legal line of child sexual abuse.  With every step the church is working to recruit more teens and preteens into that lifestyle.

 

In First Congregational United Church of Christ of Portland, under Minister Michael Ellick, an event was previously held called “Drag me to Church” and the proceeds (a $5 entrance fee) were donated to a local LGBTQ community center.

 

The church brought in the cabaret group Caravan of Glam to perform. One could be excused for not realizing that First Congregational is merely masquerading as a church upon seeing the four scantily dressed drag queens performing erotic dances to music.

 

The First Church Somerville UCC in Somerville, Massachusetts, has made their drag event a yearly affair since 2011. A multi-day celebration of the transgender lifestyle, it begins with a benefit concert given by performers in drag, the equal of any adults-only night club.

 

On Sunday, the pastor then delivers a LGBTQ-focused sermon interspersed with so-called gospel music and followed by church members, both children and adults, cross dressing as they eat brunch.

 

More than ever before, many of today’s churches have become a plague on society as they embrace and promote the prevalence of gender confusion.

Bible on LGBTQ Lifestyle


Only in Jesus is There Good News

 

John R. Houk

© June 9, 2019

 

There is a war going on right now by Secular Humanist Multicultural (let’s call them) Transformists AGAINST Christian faith derived from the Holy Bible. Media (including Entertainment – Big Screen and TV), major corporations, LGBTQ activists, college professors AND school teachers (including school district administrative personnel) are propagandizing (i.e. brainwashing) society against Christian Morality. These people who are influential in shaping the opinion of society at large are purposely transforming a society once dedicated to respect Christian principles into denigrating Christian Morality.

 

If you are a Church goer and the preaching you listen to tells you Biblical principles (i.e. the God-Inspired Word of God) are archaic and out of step with modern humanity, that preacher is spewing godless transformative thought. God have mercy! That Transformist preacher may even share so-called alternative scholarly beliefs that delegitimizes the original meaning of Holy Scripture. That’s what the Devil did to Adam and Eve to transform them from obedience to God to allegiance to the old serpent Satan.

 

1 Now the serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And he [Satan] said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden?

And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat the fruit from the trees of the garden,

Except the fruit from the tree which is in the middle of the garden. God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.

But the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die,

For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing the difference between good and evil and blessing and calamity.

And when the woman saw that the tree was good (suitable, pleasant) for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave some also to her husband, and he ate. (Genesis 3: 1-6 AMPC)

 

Satan twisted God’s Words twisting the intent to make God appear the liar. Did Adam and Eve die physically after eating the forbidden fruit? NO! But they did die spiritually separating themselves from the Presence of God.

 

And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

But the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, Where are you? (Genesis 3: 8-9 AMPC)

 

That separation from the Presence of God is what sends people to hell when they die physically. Believing in the sacrificial price paid by Jesus and His Resurrection from death to life restores one to the Presence of God spiritually with the promise of a new body clothed in God’s Glory in the Return of Christ Jesus and the resurrection of all dead in the Last Judgement. I believe these Scripture reference illustrate my point:

 

Acts 16: 30-31; Romans 10: 8-13; 1 Corinthians 15: 45-49, 52-57; Jude 18-23; Revelation 21: 8 (AMPC):

 

Acts 16:30-31

30 And he brought them out [of the dungeon] and said, Men, what is it necessary for me to do that I may be saved?

31 And they answered, Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ [[a]give yourself up to Him, [b] take yourself out of your own keeping and entrust yourself into His keeping] and you will be saved, [and this applies both to] you and your household as well.

 

Romans 10:8-13

But what does it say? The Word (God’s message in Christ) is near you, on your lips and in your heart; that is, the Word (the message, the basis and object) of faith which we preach,

Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

10 For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation.

11 The Scripture says, No man who believes in Him [who adheres to, relies on, and trusts in Him] will [ever] be put to shame or be disappointed.

12 [No one] for there is no distinction between Jew and Greek. The same Lord is Lord over all [of us] and He generously bestows His riches upon all who call upon Him [in faith].

13 For everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord [invoking Him as Lord] will be saved.

 

1 Corinthians 15:45-49

45 Thus it is written, The first man Adam became a living being (an individual personality); the last Adam (Christ) became a life-giving Spirit [restoring the dead to life].

46 But it is not the spiritual life which came first, but the physical and then the spiritual.

47 The first man [was] from out of earth, made of dust (earthly-minded); the second Man [is] the Lord from out of heaven.

48 Now those who are made of the dust are like him who was first made of the dust (earthly-minded); and as is [the Man] from heaven, so also [are those] who are of heaven (heavenly-minded).

49 And just as we have borne the image [of the man] of dust, so shall we and so [a]let us also bear the image [of the Man] of heaven.

 

1 Corinthians 15:52-57

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [sound of the] last trumpet call. For a trumpet will sound, and the dead [in Christ] will be raised imperishable (free and immune from decay), and we shall be changed (transformed).

53 For this perishable [part of us] must put on the imperishable [nature], and this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] must put on immortality (freedom from death).

54 And when this perishable puts on the imperishable and this that was capable of dying puts on freedom from death, then shall be fulfilled the Scripture that says, Death is swallowed up (utterly vanquished [a]forever) in and unto victory.

55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?

56 Now sin is the sting of death, and sin exercises its power [b][upon the soul] through [c][the abuse of] the Law.

57 But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Jude 18-23

18 They told you beforehand, In the last days (in the end time) there will be scoffers [who seek to gratify their own unholy desires], following after their own ungodly passions.

19 It is these who are [agitators] setting up distinctions and causing divisions—merely sensual [creatures, carnal, worldly-minded people], devoid of the [Holy] Spirit and destitute of any higher spiritual life.

20 But you, beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [[a]make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit;

21 Guard and keep yourselves in the love of God; expect and patiently wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)—[which will bring you] unto life eternal.

22 And refute [so as to] convict some who dispute with you, and on some have mercy who waver and doubt.

23 [Strive to] save others, snatching [them] out of [the] fire; on others take pity [but] with fear, loathing even the garment spotted by the flesh and polluted by their sensuality.

 

Revelation 21:8

But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)—[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.

 

The above Scriptures apply to all manner of people receiving Salvation in Christ or the opposite rejecting the Saving Grace of faith in the birth, death and bodily Resurrection of Jesus the Christ.

 

But for the purpose of the inspiration of these thoughts, let’s examine what the Word of God tells us about all things unnatural with the Transformists pushing acceptance of the immorality of the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender-Queer (LGBTQ) Agenda (my sense is “Queer” takes care of the perversions sympathetic to LGBT).

 

The LGBTQ perversion is so pervasive I will probably receive tons of criticism from their ungodly militant activists labeling me with the epithet of homophobe to project me as a bigot which essentially condemns my Christian faith and thus by extension criticizes the Creator of all that exists that that lifestyle an abomination (the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition uses more descriptive words to replace KJV “abomination”):

 

Leviticus 20: 13; Romans 1: 21, 24-28 (AMPC):

 

Leviticus 20: 13

13 If a man lies with a male as if he were a woman, both men have committed an offense (something perverse, unnatural, abhorrent, and detestable); they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

 

Romans 1: 21, 24-28

21 Because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and [a]godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened.

 

24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their [own] hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin],

25 Because they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever! Amen (so be it).

26 For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions. For their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one,

27 And the men also turned from natural relations with women and were set ablaze (burning out, consumed) with lust for one another—men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own [a]bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalty of their wrong-doing and going astray, which was [their] fitting retribution.

28 And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome,

 

Did you know your Public School system just might be so anti-Christian that it may punish their Christian students standing with God’s Word when offended by LGBTQ brainwashing? Lebanon High School in Ohio is punishing High School student Gabby Helsinger for plastering Bible verses by homosexual organization Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) promoting gay pride month informing readers on God’s thoughts on the homosexual lifestyle. The Lebanon High School Principal (listed as Scott Butler on the LHS website – his email: butler.scott@lebanonschools.org) proceeded to suspend Helsinger. Mommy Underground has the story.

Teen Suspended For Posting Bible Verses In Response To Gay Pride Exhibit

Gabby Helsinger

 

Being in a country where we have the freedom to express ourselves is a blessing.

 

A luxury not many countries have, openly advocating our point of view is something people have taken to soapboxes all over the nation.

 

But what happens when a backward society stifles morality, while exploiting anti-family and anti-God stances?

 

You get people who praise the wicked, while condemning those who do good.

 

An Ohio high school student is feeling the brunt of skewed liberal thinking after she was suspended by the principal for expressing her faith.

 

Fox News reported:

 

A high school student in Ohio is speaking out after she was suspended for posting Bible verses in her school in response to LGBT pride flags displayed in hallways.”

 

The Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) was letting Lebanon High School know that they had a presence there by hanging LGBT flags around the building.

 

This seemingly innocuous action, as seen by the liberal population, is far from innocent. The GSA has long been known to coerce children into becoming a part of the LGBT community, as Mommy Underground has previously reported.

 

Gabby Helsinger was empathetic towards all the lost kids who get caught up in the confusion of the LGBT community, so she felt led to put up Bible verses around the school after seeing all the flags.

 

On Thursday when I got to school, I see that there were pride flags, posters around my school,” Gabby said in a now popular Facebook video. “And I felt the need to write down some Bible verses so I could put them around my school. And I wrote them down and I put them around the lockers, the walls.”

 

The video continues, explaining why she did this thoughtful act:

 

Seeing that there [were] people in my school that needed help …,” said Helsinger. “They don’t need to be living in the confusion of wondering if they should be gay, bi, lesbian, trans — anything like that. And I know that God is the only way that they can be healed by that, and that’s why I did it…”

 

Unfortunately, that is not how Lebanon High School is seeing Helsinger’s actions, and without notice suspended her for targeting the schools GSA club.

 

Gabby Helsinger, a Lebanon High School student, posted a video on Facebook Friday claiming she is being punished for “targeting” the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club.

 

The same day the verses were put up, sharing a little inspiration with the hopeless students at the high school, a teacher was seen by Helsinger taking the verses down.

 

Despite the inappropriate action taken by the teacher, and the clear bias of representation in the school, Helsinger did not engage the teacher or start any conflict.

 

Thinking the peaceful attempt at expressing her faith at school was over, Helsinger came to school the following day as usual.

 

However, she explains on Facebook how her day took a turn for the worse. She states:

 

The next day, I got called to the office and there is a letter that says that I have an ISS, which is an in-school suspension, and the reason why I have it is because ‘abuse of others, disrespect, rudeness’ because I put Bible verses up ‘targeting the GSA organization,’”

 

This is impossible, seeing that Helsinger “did not know what the GSA organization was or meant.”

 

A Bible verse is not rude, disrespectful, or abusive.

 

Helsinger was questioned by the principal, according to her video, asking her why she did what she did, in which she replied that she wanted “to spread the word of God.”

 

Then the principal wanted to know if she had “permission” to put up Bible verses. She responded that she didn’t know you needed permission, because students put notes on lockers all the time.

 

It is wrong that this principal targeted a Bible believing student for something that is not against school policy, reprimanding her and taking away her right to express her faith.

 

Faithwire reports on Lebanon City School superintendent’s response to the event, stating how the school’s Code of Conduct “does not prohibit the sharing or posting of religious text or imagery at school.”

 

Bring your bible.org specializes in the laws that pertain to religious freedoms in public schools, and they report:

 

In general, students can voluntarily express their personal and religious beliefs to their classmates through verbal or written expressions, as long as they follow school policy and do not engage in these activities during classroom or instruction time. Schools can enforce reasonable limits on times and locations for where students are allowed to distribute materials. But these regulations must be applied equally to all students. That means schools cannot impose an outright ban on religious-themed materials if they already allow students to distribute non-religious materials.”

 

Fox News tried to get a comment from Scott Butler, the principal who unjustly sentenced Helsinger to suspension. He simply responded:

 

“We do not publicly discuss the discipline of individual students. In general, when a student violates the Student Code of Conduct, there are consequences for those actions.”

 

But as we know, the superintendent already verified that the Code of Conduct was not broken.

 

Butler is not facing any repercussion that has been reported since bullying a girl for believing in something different than him.

 

This kind of bias and persecution of religious expression in public schools is widespread and inexcusable.

 

Don’t fall victim to liberal bullying, and let your state officials know when your child’s freedoms are violated.

 

Please let us know in the comments section if you have a child who has been targeted for believing in the Bible.

Israel’s Moral History – Pay Attention USA


John R. Houk

© April 14, 2019

America is a great nation struggling to maintain its greatness largely due a stark ideological divide between Left-Wing and Conservative visions.

 

History illustrates many great nations and (gasp) empires lost their greatness due to moral depreciation. One could probably write a book illustrating the rise and fall of nations related to a people’s declining moral values. Saying it with a large dose of un-academic slang, “I ain’t gonna write that book.”

 

Yet due to the nature of my faith one historical nation/kingdom that should get America’s attention is Israel and later the divided lower half – Judah.

 

Biblically a group of Hebrew slaves found deliverance from Egypt then journeyed to a land Promised to their Hebrew ancestors Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (rechristened Israel). After a period of a sort of confederated Judgeships, the Hebrew tribes united under one King who was Saul. Saul had some moral issues in obedience to God losing his crown which came upon David son of Jesse. David then his son Solomon maintained a unified Israel while alive.

 

David had a moral failure with another man’s wife that resulted in that wife becoming pregnant by David. That led David to set the husband up for a military suicide mission which was essentially murder by proxy. David married the slain husband’s wife Bathsheba. The child conceived in adultery and further tainted by murder was allowed by God to die. David and Bathsheba’s next son would eventually succeed his father David. David looked the other way as some of his older sons entered sinful avenues I won’t go into. BUT for clarity, David always owned up to his choices which God Almighty honored by calling David a man after His own heart.

 

Solomon turned into a ladies’ man by having a thousand wives and concubines of which many were foreign women who maintained their pagan religion violating Commandment number one: “You shall have no other gods before Me.” One might argue Solomon reigned with wisdom yet his marital choices undoubtedly planted the seeds of his descendants drawing away from God rather than near.

 

After Solomon’s death bad character training of the next king in Rehoboam led to Israel dividing into two kingdoms. The ten northern Hebrew tribes became Israel and descended into ungodly paganism to the point God allowed Assyria to conquer and depopulate the ten Hebrew tribes (between the years 734 BC – 724 BC). Often called the lost tribes of Israel now deemed with legends and myths about their lot in history.

 

The two southern Hebrew tribes of Judah and Benjamin formed the Kingdom of Judah that retained the royal lineage of David and Solomon. These descended Kings rippled back and forth kings supporting pagan religions and the faith Jewish heritage which eventually became today’s Judaism. With each pagan king Judah more and reflected what Biblical standards would expose as the moral depravity of the religious practices of pagan religions. God allows the Babylonian captivity (circa 586 BC) of most of Judah’s population especially those that might be called the intelligentsia. There have always been a Jewish people in the Holy Land but only as a remnant after deportations and repatriations. The Babylonian repatriation was a relatively short period after the Captivity. The Jewish repatriation after the Roman expulsion roughly between 70 AD and 135 AD did not occur until after the 1900s AD which accelerated after the WWI and WWII Allied victories resulting in the restoration of the nation of Israel in 1948 AD.

 

America’s history compared to the history of the Jewish people is like an American drip in a Jewish ocean. Nevertheless, the lessons the Jews learned the rough way is an example voting Americans – ESPECIALLY CHRISTIAN AMERICANS – should think deeply about.

 

Inspiring some of that deep thought is Greg Holt looking at how spiritual darkness is creeping over America if not reversed by some light, could lead to destruction for America’s greatness and Christianity’s Liberty.

America is at a Crossroads, What Choice Will You Make?

Spiritual Darkness Destroying America & Church – Book-cover

 

From my forthcoming book:

 

Spiritual Darkness is Destroying America and the Church

 

Colossians 3:23-24 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; 24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. (KJV)

 

The American people as a nation are at an important crossroads with equally important decisions to make.  The decisions that we make as a nation from here on out will have significant and irrevocable consequences.  This writer hopes that people will wake up from their slumber, and that other people will turn aside from their apathy and indifference.  The decisions made will affect all the people of this nation as a whole, and that includes those who are innocent.

 

We the People have increasingly turned away from our Father, and God is not pleased with this decision.  Without necessary changes to our national attitudes and actions, God will soon abandon us to our own devices and the result will not be pretty.  America is at an historical point, the point where the nation of the United States could literally come to an end, as in cease to exist.  I imagine some will read my words here and immediately dismiss them as ridiculous, reaching the conclusion that I am exaggerating – let me assure the reader, I am not.

 

If one is at all a student of history, one will see that when any and all societies reached the point of godlessness, when immorality ruled the day, when corruption was the norm not the exception, and good people were treated like criminals – this is the point where every single kingdom ever known fell, and was replaced by another.  It happened to the Romans, the Babylonians, the Medes, the Persians, and even to Israel.  The U.S. will be no different.

 

Time is running out for this once great nation.  In some ways we are still great, but in the ways that really matter, well we are not.  If that statement offends you, well you need a large dose of reality.  The U.S. has become a cesspool of immorality and is rapidly becoming strongly anti-God and anti-Christian.  These comments will no doubt upset some of you, and that’s fine, you don’t have to agree with me.  There are still great people in this country, good people that do good things.  However, collectively as a nation we are deeply corrupted and immoral – and most of us have no use for God.

 

Even the churches in this country have become seriously corrupted.  So many have lost their way, straying from the Word of God and embracing ungodly things like homosexuality.  If these churches are not willfully embracing the LGBT agenda, they are at the very least looking the other way and not teaching that it is a serious sin against God either.

 

Please don’t misunderstand what is being said here, these people (LGBT) are not to be mistreated or hated, but rather they should be welcomed into the church and loved by those of us who believe and follow Jesus.  This writer knows that this is a tall order and can be hard to do, but if those (all those) who do not know Christ are not exposed to those who do – how can they be expected to change?  How can they be saved?  At the same time, these people are not to be allowed into any position of authority within the Church until such time as they have repented of their ways and have given themselves fully and completely to Jesus Christ.

 

Far too many do not understand that it is of paramount importance – the Gospel message of Jesus Christ must not be changed, it must not be cheapened and added on to, or taken away from.  What the Bible proclaimed 2000 years ago, we need to proudly stand and proclaim that very same message today.  The Gospel is not a cheap suit to be taken off and exchanged with another one at will.  Jesus is the same yesterday, today and always – and so is His Gospel message.  It is unalterable, and unchanging, and its message remains the same.

 

This cannot be stressed enough, the Gospel of Jesus Christ absolutely must not be changed.  If the Words of Christ offend you, change your opinion.  If you think the Gospel must be changed for the times, you are deluded.  If your thought is that the Gospel must be watered down in order to be more attractive to unbelievers, you are an idiot.  We are here talking about the very words of God!  Not the mere inconsequential words of man who is here today and gone tomorrow.  There will be a swift and severe penalty for those that change the Word of Christ.

 

Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.(KJV)

 

All of those in the Church must make a decision and make it soon, to follow the true and Living God, or to follow their own interpretation of God – which is no god at all.  There is only One God, and He is the God of the Bible, not the fake god so many churches of today worship in vain.  Just as all Scripture was given by divine inspiration – so too our perception of, and belief in God must be defined by the Word of God, and not by any man’s liberal interpretation of the Bible.

 

There is of course resistance to the idea (even within the Church) that the Bible absolutely must drive our beliefs and our values, meaning that our worldview is determined by the Bible and its teachings.  Some say that the Bible was written by men (this includes people in the Church) without divine inspiration and is therefore fallible.  Others will say that the Bible is outdated to our present time period. Yet others will say that there is no way to know which version of the Bible is authentic.

 

To this utter nonsense I will reply:

 

Does anyone who has any belief in God truly think that God was and is not perfectly capable of preserving His Word to us no matter how long ago it was written?  The very idea that the God who created the entire universe and created man out of the dust of the Earth – that this God is not capable of preserving His Words to us, is entirely laughable.  This is not a god I would follow, if this supposed god can’t even preserve his own written words to us – how is this god going to follow through on the rest of what he promised, such as eternal life with him in Heaven?  No, the God I follow has preserved His Word and He keeps His promises – guaranteed.

Extreme LGBTQ Minority Crazy Political Clout


John R. Houk

© September 17, 2017

 

The ungodly LGBTQ must be concerned if sentient non-earth people will be offended if a Family/Biblical values person heads NASA. Apparently, the homosexual lobby fears space aliens might be influenced in the space exploration of the final frontier.

 

Rep. Jim Bridenstine’s (R-OK) NASA nomination is being opposed because he is wise enough to not agree with a Gay lifestyle. Of course, the Leftist MSM is lining up behind the godless LGBTQ. How can a group of people who ONLY represent 4.1% of the population (Pew Research 2016) have that kind of political clout? If you can’t agree that the LGBTQ is a special Rights group of people you must be a racist evil homophobe. As if homosexuals are a race of people rather than a group of people that chose a deviant lifestyle.

 

Yup, I said “deviant”. I don’t care if Medical organizations, Psychologist organizations, and/or Psychiatric organizations were essentially pressured decades ago into normalizing homosexuals rather than keeping with their original analysis that same-sex relations is deviant.

 

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) was harassed by political pressure rather than scientific data to end the mental deviancy listing of homosexual practices:

 

They [i.e. Rogers H. Wright and Nicholas A. Cummings] got established and revered practitioners to write chapters which explore these important issues. The following regarding the removal of homosexuality from the DSM in 1973 was written as a matter of verifiable fact:

 

“The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association yielded suddenly and completely to political pressure when in 1973 it removed homosexuality as a treatable aberrant condition. A political firestorm had been created by gay activists within psychiatry, with intense opposition to normalizing homosexuality coming from a few outspoken psychiatrists who were demonized and even threatened, rather than scientifically refuted. Psychiatry’s House of Delegates sidestepped the conflict by putting the matter to a vote of the membership, marking for the first time in the history of healthcare that a diagnosis or lack of diagnosis was decided by popular vote than by scientific evidence”(page 9) The truth on how homosexuality was removed from the DSM by APA – Commentary on Dr Yik’s response to Lawrence Khong; POSTED BY CONCERNEDSGCITIZEN; Homosexuality and Science; 9/14/13

I can’t blame the article writer using a pseudonym. Homosexual activists use both defamation – to shame – and violence – to strike fear – against truth tellers to silence them from the American public.

 

Here is a brief description when science was abandoned for submission to political pressure:

 

  • 1973 – Board of Trustees of The American Psychiatric Association (APA) approves the deletion of homosexuality from the DSM-II and substitutes a diagnosis of “sexual orientation disturbance.” Intense discussion and debate followed.

 

  • On Dec 15 1973, the Board of Trustees of the APA voted to delete homosexuality altogether from the DSM. Opposition from several psychiatrists immediately followed. A referendum on the Board’s decision was called.

 

  • 1974 – the entire membership of the APA was polled for their support or rejection of the Board’s decision. žOf the 10,000 voting members, nearly 40% opposed the Board’s decision to normalize homosexuality. Decision was hardly unanimous. (Controversially, a survey conducted in 1979 asked 10,000 psychiatrists if they felt homosexuality “usually represented a pathological adaptation.” ž69% of respondents said “yes,” and 60% said homosexual men were less capable of “mature, loving relationships” than heterosexual men.)

 

The author of Destructive Trends in mental health was right to conclude:

 

“Diagnosis today in psychology and psychiatry is cluttered with politically correct verbiage, which seemingly has taken precedence over sound professional experience and scientific validation.” (Ibid.)

 

Since the APA barely removed homosexuality as a deviant mental disorder, the American Left and Homosexual Activists were well armed with the needed propaganda to slowly persuade the American public to accept ungodly homosexuality.

 

Even a recent scientific study revealed by Life Site circa November 2016 show homosexuality is not normal:

 

Those who are setting our so-called “values”, such as the small but powerful group of academics, mainstream media, and homosexual activists, do so by attempting to impose strange myths and ideas that have no scientific basis.

 

These myths include the one that homosexuals are “born that way”, can’t change, and must be accepted for “who they are”. Further, those claiming they are a different gender than that with which they were born, i.e. the transgendered, who “feel” they belong to other than their gender at birth, must be accepted as such.

 

The public is supposed to put aside its intelligence and common sense, and respectfully bow collectively in obeisance to these “expert” opinions. These opinions, however, are complete and utter hogwash.

 

… However, the myth-makers attempt to force their nonsense on us by the heavy hand of the law, claiming that it’s “discrimination” to refuse to accept the myths as truth.  Jurisdictions which don’t obey their rulings are economically punished, parents are forbidden to protect their children from the monstrous “bathroom” laws that permit males to use girls’ showers, lockers and change rooms.  It’s all a fraud based on propaganda with no scientific legitimacy.

 

Bombshells Explode The Myths

 

 

The first bombshell was a landmark study published in The Journal – The New Atlantis, (August 23, 2016). The Journal is a well-known journal of science, technology and ethics based in Washington D.C.  This article analysed [sic] the scientific evidence of LGBT issues published to date in scientific journals.

 

… Dr. Mayer stated he supports every sentence in this report without reservation since it is about science and medicine.  He also stated he was alarmed to learn during his review of over 500 scientific articles that the LGBT community bears a disproportionate rate of mental health problems compared to the population as a whole.

 

  • The other author is Dr. Paul McHugh, one of the leading psychiatrists in the world. … These scientists reviewed hundreds of peer reviewed studies on sexual orientation and gender identity from the biological, psychological and social sciences.  Their conclusions were as follows:

 

  • The belief that gender identity is an innate, fixed human property independent of biological sex – so that a person might be a ‘man trapped in a woman’s body’ or ‘a woman trapped in a man’s body’ – is not supported by scientific evidence.

 

  • Only a minority of children who express gender-atypical thoughts or behaviour will continue to do so into adolescence or adulthood. There is no evidencethat all such children should be encouraged to become transgender, much less subjected to hormone treatments or surgery.

 

  • Non-heterosexual and transgender people have higher rates of mental health problems (anxiety, depression, suicide), as well as behavioral and social problems (substance abuse, intimate partner violence), than the general population. Discrimination alone does not account for the entire disparity.

 

The second bombshell was exploded by a top researcher for the American Psychological Association (APA), lesbian activist, Dr. Lisa Diamond, co-author-in-chief of ‘the APA Handbook’ of sexuality and psychology and one of the APA’s most respected members.  She admitted that sexual orientation was “fluid” and not unchangeable.  By doing so, Dr. Diamond confirmed that the myth that “homosexuals can’t change” is now a dead-end theory.  She summarized the relevant findings in a lecture at Cornell University stating that abundant research has now established that sexual orientation – including attraction, behaviour and self-identity – is fluid for both adolescents and adults for both genders. (The LGBT fraud has been exposed, and they’re definitely not happy about it; By Claire Chretien; Life Site News; 11/15/16 1:37 pm EST)

 

The Multiculturalist Left and the lying Homosexual activist-lobbyists have been brainwashing Americans for decades. Even now I am guessing NO one has heard the recent science confirming the brainwashing lies.

 

ERGO, the reality of the Will of God found in His Word shows the purpose of the Creator of one male and one female is the standard He intends for His creation. If God’s Word calls same-sex relations an abomination in His sight, then it is so – Leviticus 18: 22; 20: 13 NKJV:

 

22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.

 

13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.

 

God in Christ is no less approving –Romans 1: 18-19, 26-27 NKJV:

 

God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

 

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

 

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

 

And yet, it is not God’s will that any human should perish in eternal separation from His Presence. All humanity is born in a sin nature. That is the reason the Almighty emptied Himself of Divine prerogatives and became fully human to born as a perfect human to be the sacrificial lamb for Adam’s hereditary disobedience.

 

Jesus the infant was conceive in the womb of a human female by the power of the Holy Spirit (not human copulation as the Muslims erroneously believe). The infant Jesus became a man. Jesus as the Son of God and the son of man simultaneously, ministered His Divine purpose for three years then became the Lamb of God dying for humanity’s sin nature so that all that believe in the Resurrection of Jesus are re-united with God Almighty in spirit now and in our resurrection from the dead our natural appearance will be changed spirit, soul and body –Galatians 3: 10-14 NKJV:

 

The Law Brings a Curse

 

10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.”[a] 11 But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.”[b] 12 Yet the law is not of faith, but “the man who does them shall live by them.”[c]

 

13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”[d]), 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

 

I have no idea how those of the Jewish faith handle the brutal punishments of the Law in this modern era, but for Christians the punished prescribed in the Law in this life has eternally been paid for by the Lamb of God. That includes the numerous sin punishments that is also applied to heterosexuals and as to the subject of this post, those who have made the choice of a homosexual lifestyle.

 

I am fairly certain that homosexual apologists and Leftist Multiculturalists will try to disarm God’s Word by attempting to twist it to bend to human academics to fit their world view. That is unfortunately the problem with Humanist thinking. Humanism intentionally dismisses the Divine paradigm because world order darkness blinds Humanists unable to see the Light of Salvation of Jesus Christ the Son of God/Lamb of God that can Redeem those stuck in Humanist darkness.

 

That is the plus of Rep. Jim Bridenstine, President Trump’s nomination to lead NASA. If Bridenstine is a good Christian, he will not make a person blinded in homosexual darkness suffer for their social choices but rather direct them according to merit. That is probably unlike a virulent homosexual that would make it their life’s aim to persecute a Christian employee for their beliefs with shaming or worse – violence.

 

In essence, the Left and Homosexual activists are actually attempting to utilize a religious test to disqualify Jim Bridenstine from being the next NASA Administrator. I like the observations made by Mark Whittington on the Bridenstine nomination:

 

However, it appears that Bridenstine is being subjected to a religious test for the position that he has been nominated for. Many people oppose some items on the LGBT agenda out of sincere religious conviction. Bridenstine’s private and political beliefs are being used as a disqualifier for becoming head of NASA, even though those views would not affect his conduct as administrator. The space agency has no influence whatsoever on whether or not people of the same sex have the right to marry. That issue was decided by a ruling of the Supreme Court and is now the law of the land.

 

One wonders if these questions are going to come up during the hearings when they finally take place. Bridenstine will likely reply that he will follow the law, as he is obligated to do, and perhaps openly wonder what these issues have to do with returning to the moon and re-establishing American dominance in space. (Now Jim Bridenstine is in trouble with the LGBT community; By Mark Whittington; Blasting News; 9/14/17)

 

The LGBTQ ungodly nuts are trying to same political muscle they used way back in 1973 to disqualify Jim Bridenstine in 2017. The Left-Wing Washington Post actually has a news story of those that are supportive of the Bridenstine nomination largely due to the fact his Congressional record demonstrated a huge support for NASA’s space exploration agenda with the addition of private capital cooperation:

 

 

Bridenstine’s nomination comes as NASA is increasingly relying on the private sector to perform tasks that were once the exclusive domain of the government. …

 

Now, under Trump, the growing private sector is looking to capitalize on its momentum and partner with NASA to go even farther — to the moon and deep space. And it regards Bridenstine as someone who would be good for business.

 

“NASA needs dedicated and inspired leadership, and Representative Bridenstine is an outstanding choice to provide precisely that,” said S. Alan Stern, chairman of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation, an industry group representing many space companies and start-ups.

 

The Coalition for Deep Space Exploration, representing many of the big legacy contractors, said it also welcomed the nomination, saying Bridenstine “has been an active and vocal advocate for space on Capitol Hill.”

 

 

NASA is poised to ask the private sector for proposals to develop a lunar lander that could take experiments and cargo to the surface of the moon, with flights starting as early as 2018. Bridenstine, who serves in the Navy Reserve, has advocated a return to the moon, writing in a blog post last year that “from the discovery of water ice on the moon until this day, the American objective should have been a permanent outpost of rovers and machines, with occasional manned missions for science and maintenance.”

 

 

In addition to backing work with younger, entrepreneurial firms, Bridenstine has also voiced his support for the traditional industrial base, made up of behemoths such as Lockheed Martin and Boeing. They want to ensure that programs such as the Space Launch System, the massive rocket being developed by NASA, and the Orion crew capsule continue …

 

 

Mike Gold, the chairman of a commercial space advisory committee for the Federal Aviation Administration, said that Bridenstine would be able to unite the industry with “his support for a diverse array of activities such as deep-space exploration, private-sector partnerships, Earth science and technology development.” (Support builds for Bridenstine to lead NASA despite past skepticism on climate change; By Christian Davenport; WaPo; 9/11/17)

 

WaPo gravitates to the Left so it is unsurprising that the article continues by stating that in Congress Bridenstine was critical of Obama spending more on Climate Change than on weather forecasting.

 

The Senate will be involved in the confirmation hearings for Bridenstine. The Multiculturalist Dems in the Senate were extremely displeased that Bridenstine does not share the concerns of the immediacy of a doomed earth from constantly fudged statistics pointing toward Climate Change disasters.

 

Between Homosexual activists and Leftist Eco-Marxists, Bridenstine at the very least can be grilled by Leftist Senators about issues that have zero to do with the science of space exploration.

 

My fellow Okies, write, email or phone Senators Inhofe and Langford to make a stir about the real issues that Jim Bridenstine should be judged as a capable Administrator of NASA.

Honor is Mandatory


Pastor Henry Madava

 

Intro to Shamim’s ‘Honor is Mandatory’

Edited by John R. Houk

By Shamim Masih

August 2, 2015

Shamim Masih writes about Biblical Honor. The tone of the post is in relation to the Glory Filled Pakistan Christian Leadership Conference held in Islamabad Pakistan July 14-18. Shamim in true Pakistani style called the meetings the “National Church leadership Conference”. The felicitator for the conference was Pastor Henry Madava and the organizations sponsoring the Christian event was Christ For All Cities (CFAC). The CFAC is an outreach of Victory Christian Church located in Kiev, Ukraine (I had to use Google Translate on the Church’s location page for it is in Ukrainian). Here is an excerpt from Victory Christian Church’s “Wellcome” page that gives you a feel for the Church and its Pastor Henry Madava:

Victory Christian church is a place where every person can hear the message of the Word of God, receive Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and learn to build true relationships with Lord and other people, find peace with oneself and also to fulfill his destiny.

Victory Christian church is a place for the whole family where by getting know God`s principles relationships between spouses, between children and parents are been healed, where close friends become even closer. Everyone here has an opportunity to develop oneself, grow spiritually, to spend his time actively and fruitfully. Our church is open for everybody.

Henry Madava is the founder and senior pastor of the Christian Victory Church network and the founder of the international ministry Christ for All Cities.

Henry Madava was born in Zimbabwe. He arrived in the Soviet Union in 1986. After graduating from the Kiev Institute of Civil Aviation, he founded the Victory Church in December 1992.

The mission of Henry Madava is to help people to find salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and to become integral to live the full-fledged life in society. Pastor Henry works on God’s field by teaching and preaching God’s truth not only in Ukraine but all over the world. Consistent and clear explanation of the Word of God makes his teachings accessible to everyone.

Pastor Henry Madava is the well-known preacher and speaker at many conferences. He has preached the Word of God in more than 40 countries worldwide. As one of the prominent Christian leaders in Ukraine, Henry Madava is eager to see the awakening that would cover the entire Ukraine and the whole world. A lot of Victory Churches have already been founded in Ukraine and abroad.

As an evangelist, Henry Madava holds Festivals of Jesus in different parts of the world every year. These are evangelistic healing meetings where … (Wellcome to Victory Christian Church!)

I felt compelled into Victory Christian Church because it is so similar in name to the Church I attend in Tulsa OK (Victory Christian Center). In the brief reading on CFAC and Brother Henry Madava it appears to me he is an awesome preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Here is a Vimeo video sharing the promotional Pakistan conference that teaches Christian Pastors and Preachers to be understand a Glory Filled life:

(I looked up the link for the video which was provided but other than social sharing Vimeo denied direct access. It could be because I live in the USA, Pastor Madava’s Church in Ukraine, access was limited to connections with Pakistan or all of the above.)

Frankly I am amazed, gratified and blessed such a conferences was allowed to take place in Sunni-Islam dominated Pakistan. This is a nation in which Sharia Blasphemy Laws are used as a tool to persecute devout and nominal Pakistani-Christians all alike. Here is a “Glory Filled” conference info excerpted from the first day of the conference:

The purpose of Glory Filled conferences is to equip pastors and leaders with the knowledge about the glory and power of God and to impart them with the anointing and fire of the Holy Spirit to spread the Gospel in their cities, countries, and nations.

A lot of work has been done to make this vision happen. The Pakistani national conference committee has been working hard for the last six months to organize this big event together with the ministers from the Christ for All Cities. The largest venue in the city—Jinnah Convention Center—was booked in advance to hold this mega event. Its nominal capacity is 2200 people, and it can be extended by placing additional chairs. Special permissions were secured from different governmental authorities to hold this conference. Big promotion work was done in different cities of Pakistan to attract pastors and ministers to participate in the event. More than 500 pastors and ministers came to Islamabad from other cities, and the total number of registered people exceeded 3500. The majority of them came from the region of Islamabad and RawalPindi, the twin cities located in the beautiful mountain region in the north-east of Pakistan. The Christ for All Cities Ministries helped some of them to get to the convention center by providing 30 buses and vans that made multiple trips to distant areas of Islamabad and RawalPindi to pick up people there. In total, about 1500 people could have a possibility to use these buses and vans to come to the event.

Pastor Henry preached from the Gospel of Matthew 16:13-16.Jesus asked His disciples, saying “Who do men say Me to be?” Simon Peter answered and said “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Then Jesus answered and said to him “You are blessed, Simon, son of Jonah, for flesh and blood did not reveal it to you, but My Father in Heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” … (Bold Text Mine – Glory Filled Pakistan: Day 1; Event: Glory Filled Pakistan Christian Leadership Conference; CFAC; 7/14/15)

People have been jailed and/or killed for standing for the basic Christian tenet of faith that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God. Islam specifically condemns this belief hence the belief is blasphemy in Islam.

I am presuming Shamim attending all or part of the Glory Filled Pakistan Leadership Conference. The subject of Christian honor has touched Shamim’s heart enough to share it with me and thus I share it with you.

Honor is Mandatory

By Shamim Masih

Sent: 8/2/2015 8:04 AM

ISLAMABAD: When it comes to being a follower of Christ, honor is a fact and way of life. Honor is a lifestyle of stopping to embrace the people and places that surround your life. Yet, so often in ministry, honor sometimes seems elusive. Speaking at the National Church leadership Conference, Pastor Henry Madava advised to bring unity among the body of the Christ. He said, being united doesn’t mean, to bring them all under one umbrella, we can stay united in different platforms.

Speaking at the National Church Leadership Conference, “Glory Filled Pakistan” international speaker Pastor Henry Madava said, as a pastors and ministry leaders, the truth is, we are called to show honor to all those around us. Sometimes, it’s blessing for us because we are giving what we have never received ourselves. Honor means, “To hold in high esteem, to regard with great respect, to revere”. Develop a culture of honor, he added.

Many religious leaders around want to be honored but have yet to be model that before their congregation. The truth is, honor has to be cultivated, and honor doesn’t happen by accident but is the result of intentionally living out a vision to lift up those around us. It happens as the result of an intentional pastor or leader that decides to sow the seeds of honor in how they serve our ministries to how they treat their ministers. The honor level in your church is a direct reflection of the level of honor we have modeled as pastors.

Honor is mandatory and Bible has lot to say on the subject of honor. In fact, the Bible calls us to live a life style of honor. “Render therefore to all their due………honors to whom honors.” Romans 13:7 (NKJV) and “Honor all people…….” 1-Peter 2:17 (NKJV)

We are called to live a lifestyle of honoring people, of highly regarding those around us. Often, as pastors, we take pride in being Word passed, but when it comes to our cultivating a culture of honor, have we embraced the Word’s call?

Be Blessed,

Shamim Masih

This is Why we Call the Gay Lobby Fascist!


Sodom_and_Gomorrah by John Martin

Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah

I have a dream today that gay people and lesbians will have a vested and inalienable right to universal marriage equality backed by the power of law. Gay marriage is not only a civil right to be enacted by governments, but it is a fundamental human right bestowed by the almighty hands of God.” (Bold Text Editor – Mark Charles Hardie quoted)

 

Now that is a quote of Mark Charles Hardie considering the very Words of God contradict that homosexual activist thought:

 

22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. 23 Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion.

 

24 ‘Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. 25 For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants. 26 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 27 (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled), 28 lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you. 29 For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people. (Lev. 18: 22-29 NKJV)

 

Thank God we longer live under the Old Covenant for the penalty for disobeying God then was physical death by execution. Thank God we live under the New Covenant in which the sacrificial Blood of Jesus delivers humanity from the authority of Satan’s domain and transfers them to the Kingdom of God’s dear Son Jesus Christ. Sins are forgive in Christ and the penalty of violating the Old Covenant are remitted in Christ. This means unrepentant to the end humans are in Second Death (See Also HERE) danger of eternal damnation separated from the mercies, glory, presence and benefits of God’s Kingdom. ONLY believing in the Redemptive/Resurrection work of Jesus Christ saves any human from the Second Death.

 

AND YET the mercy and Grace discovered in the New Testament Word of God still testifies that homosexuality is an unacceptable abominable lifestyle.

 

4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly;6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; 7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries, 11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord. (2 Peter 2: 4-11 NKJV)

 

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

 

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

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

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

 

32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1: 18, 24-28, 32 NKJV; But you should read the entire Romans chapter one-NKJV)

This is Why we Call the Gay Lobby Fascist!

By Matt Barber

March 10, 2015

EagleRising.com

 

While they always disguise it behind the euphemistic language of “tolerance,” “equality” and “social justice,” on occasion the homofascist left will admit to its designs on fascism. There are some who doubt those of us who have long warned that many homosexualists intend to compel, through any means possible (up to and including physical force), Christians and other dissenters to fully surrender to their radical homosexual activist agenda.

 

Mark Charles Hardie, a Huffington post columnist and 2016 candidate for the California Senate, is helping to make our point. In a February 25 column headlined, “Gay People Are Gods: Protecting LGBT Communities Is a Divine Right,” Hardie goes full Rainbow Shirt. Under the pretext of “minimizing troubling incidents of anti-gay violence,” he shares that he has submitted “an innovative proposal” to the California State Senate to create “LGBT Squads” to enforce the “gay” agenda.

 

“My proposal calls for the creation of ‘California LGBT Police Departments’ throughout the Golden State,” he writes. “These police departments, funded by the state, would be staffed exclusively by gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender police officers.”

So much for ending “discrimination” based on “sexual orientation.” Heterosexuals need not apply. In order to earn your pink, taxpayer-funded jackboots in this lavender brute squad, you must possess an aberrant sexual appetite for members of the same sex.

 

Hardie then assumes the persona of Martin Luther King Jr.’s evil twin.

“I have a dream today that gay people and lesbians will have a vested and inalienable right to universal marriage equality backed by the power of law. Gay marriage is not only a civil right to be enacted by governments, but it is a fundamental human right bestowed by the almighty hands of God.”

 

Wow. Sodomy-based “marriage,” something that the very almighty God to whom Hardie refers has expressly called “an abomination,” is now, somehow, a “fundamental human right,” which He has “bestowed.”

 

The cray cray continues: “I am inspired with a new dream — not only an aspiration for LGBT equality — but a dream of gay empowerment. For without power there can be no true security or freedom of choice. I now understand that LGBT communities worldwide must be empowered with the weapons to fight for justice.”

 

To be clear, Hardie, a former staff attorney for CA governor Pete Wilson and “public affairs intern” for Senator Barbara Boxer, is not calling for metaphorical “weapons” to enforce the “gay” agenda. He means weapons weapons. You know… guns.

“Today, in a major step towards fulfilling this lofty dream of social justice, I submitted an innovative proposal to the offices of California State Senator Mark Leno and California Assembly Member David Chiu,” he continues. According to Hardie, in order to enforce his homofascist version of “social justice,” armed “LGBT squads” are “vital.” “[I]t is also vital for LGBT communities to wield police power backed by the force of law. In other words, we must not only demand ‘gay rights,’ but we must also demand ‘gay power.’”

 

Yikes.

Hardie concludes by dedicating his column to “the memory of Matthew Shepard.” Shepard has become a bit of a mythological figure in our culture. He is, ironically, the poster child for “anti-gay hate crimes.” I say ironically because, while the mainstream media perpetuated the myth that Matthew Shepard was murdered as a result of “homophobia” during the commission of an “anti-gay hate crime,” it has now been revealed that, in fact, Shepard was a young, HIV positive crystal meth addict who was in a homosexual relationship with two of his drug dealers. These fellow “gay” druggies brutally (and tragically) murdered him during a drug deal gone bad. They are both serving life sentences for their crimes. (Bold Text Editor’s)

 

And so here we are. A California senate proposal for armed “LGBT squads” built upon the phantasmic foundation of the world’s most famous “anti-gay violence” myth.

 

What could possibly go wrong?

Genesis-Creation and Redemption


Creator of Heavens and Earth

John R. Houk

© September 15, 2013

 

If you visited my blogs in the past you are aware that I am a Christian Right kind of guy. What the Bible says is what I believe. Now saying that I am going to state something that will make some disagreeable and others agreeable. I am not a the-earth-was-created-6000-years-ago kind of guy.

 

During the period of 1650 to 1654 Protestant Bishop James Ussher published his studies of the age of the Earth as chronicled literally in the Bible. His published conclusion was that God created the Earth in 4004 BC (Before Christ). Ussher’s scholarship based on the literal time data derived from the Bible is actually quite brilliant.

 

I however, do not believe time periods in the Bible – or at least in the Old Testament – are not literal according to material linear time. You see I do believe God made Creation ex nihilo by speaking His handiwork into existence. BUT I believe God’s twinkling of the eye is not something that can be measured accurately in human corporeal understanding. The Eternal dimension of God’s dwelling is immeasurable.

 

The Genesis Creation epic God has allowed us to see in His Word, I believe, is not in the realm of 24 hour human understanding.

 

8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us,[a] not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3: 8-9 NKJV)

 

This tells me that human linear time does not measure up to God’s plan as it pertains to human reasoning. And the one day/thousand years comparison then should not be taken literally either. Although I don’t think it is impossible for God Almighty to make creation in 24 hour periods; however that which humans can measure seems to indicate that God did not take that path. So I am not going to commit myself to believing creation happened in terms of thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands or millions of years or whatever human concept of time.

 

Now granted the context of 2 Peter 3: 8-9 is that God is not slack in completing the Redemption plan of humanity. The first instalment of Redemption is that the Blood of Christ Redeems the human spirit by changing the old man corrupted by Adam’s Fall is created anew becoming a new person in Christ Jesus – behold old things have passed away and our human spirit is a new creation. Jesus Christ is coming back to Redeem humanity fully. Not just the human spirit but soul and body as well. The context in the Second Epistle of Peter is the coming Full Redemption of humanity; nevertheless it is an indication that our God who lives outside of time made his Creation according to an Eternal existence which in the material world could be measured in any number of ways that the Word of God tries to simplify for human comprehension.

 

Now I have quite probably taken too long to get to the point. I just read an article on WND which is a promotion of a movie production that is entitled “Genesis 3D”. The movie is the Creationism view is valid because it is the Word of God and Evolution is fallacious because it is thought of a man’s theory; viz., Charles Darwin.

 

 

I am a Creationist except for that 6000 year human measured chronology thing. Evolutionism is a theory that STILL is not a proven fact. The only verifiable data on Evolution is that changing environment can change the genetics of an organism as observed in short termed experimental evidence. Using short term evidence for long term conclusions is a stretch in which science utilizes predictions and conjectural constructs for a preconceived conclusion.

 

I will stick with the Word of God which to those who Believe by Faith know is Truth.

 

1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.

 

3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. (Hebrews 11: 1-3 NKJV)

 

By “faith” God framed existence ex nihilo by His Spoken Word. Human theory cannot definitively paint a picture of existence’s beginnings when that theory is outside of the Word of God. AND as much as the proponents of science proclaims the theory is the truth, science has NEVER found the observable evidence that makes a validating connection to Evolutionary theory.

 

Here is the Truth as disseminated by the Word of God:

 

1 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was[a] on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

 

3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.

 

6 Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” 7 Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.

 

9 Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.

 

11 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 13 So the evening and the morning were the third day.

 

14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. 17 God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

 

20 Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

 

24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

 

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all[b] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

 

29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

 

2 1 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

 

4 This is the history[a] of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5 before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground; 6 but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.

 

7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. (Genesis 1; 2: 1-7 NKJV)

You Can Beat Any Temptation!

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
— 1 Corinthians 10:13

 

Everyone has to deal with temptations at one time or another, so you don’t need to feel embarrassed if you’re facing a particular temptation right now. But at the same time, you don’t have to succumb to temptation, because it is something you can overcome! All temptations can be beaten! You just have to make up your mind that you’re going to be the conqueror and not the conquered!

You may not have thought of it before, but the devil tries to lure you into sin by using your mind and emotions. He injects thoughts into your mind and emotions that act as stimulants to get you all stirred up in a certain area of your life. At that moment, you are consciously aware that you can let the temptation pass you by – or you can allow those thoughts to fester in your mind and take root in your emotions until they become a major stronghold in your mind to battle and conquer. By refusing to accept the thoughts in the first place, you can avoid the whole struggle!

It’s similar to a sexual temptation. You can choose to turn and look the other way, or you can dwell on that temptation until it fills your mind and imagination. If you choose to meditate on the thought that the devil is trying to put into your head, it won’t be too long until the devil is waging a full-scale battle in your mind! If you don’t put on the brakes and stop those thoughts, the devil will conquer you. That’s why it’s so important that you learn how to control your thinking. If you can keep your mind under the control of the Holy Spirit, you will make it almost impossible for the devil to defeat you in any realm of your life.

The devil is a master when it comes to mind manipulation. He knows that if he can get you to spend a little time meditating on something wrong, he can eventually entice you to do it! If the devil was persuasive enough to deceive brilliant, mighty, powerful angels, how much more easily can he deceive people who live in a far-from-perfect environment and wrestle daily with their own imperfections! The emotional makeup of human beings makes them even more susceptible to the devil’s masterful skills of lying, deception, and manipulation.

Satan watches for the right timing. He comes along at an opportune moment. He waits until you’re tired, weary, or exasperated. Perhaps you woke up in a bad mood; someone gave you a “look” you didn’t like; or you just started off your day on the wrong foot. Then suddenly he strikes you with a thought – something that takes you totally by surprise when your guard is down!

When negative thoughts begin to deluge your mind, you need to know that it is Satan setting a trap in front of you. He is trying to ensnare you so he can cripple and devastate both you and the people you love. He’s trying to get you to bite the bait so he can set the hook! But you don’t have to fall into this trap anymore! If you really want out of this type of emotional quandary, there is a way out.

First Corinthians 10:13 promises, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”

The word “temptation” is the Greek word peirasmos, and it may refer to any outside source that appeals to a weakness in your flesh. That appeal pulls you like a magnet; it lures you mentally, emotionally, and sensually; it fascinates the imagination; it entices the flesh to take a closer peek. If you don’t stop this process, it will set its hook in your soul and haul you right smack dab into the middle of some kind of sin!

Because the word peirasmos (“temptation”) can describe any weakness of the flesh, this scripture could apply to any fleshly weakness you might struggle with – from being lazy or easily offended; to thinking too lowly or too highly of yourself; to having a problem with anger or sexual temptation. Whatever your flesh responds to is what this word peirasmos refers to!

But this verse promises that God will make a way for you to escape temptation – if you really want to escape it! The Greek word for “escape” is the word ekbasis. This word is a compound of the word ek, meaning out, and the word basin, meaning to walk. When they are compounded together, it means to walk out, as to walk out of a difficult place; to walk out of a trap; or to walk out of a place that isn’t good for you.

This makes me think of the time Joseph fled from Potiphar’s wife when she tried to seduce him. Rather than stay there and try to negotiate in the midst of the situation, Genesis 39:12 says Joseph “…fled, and got him out.” In other words, he got out of there as quickly as he could!

Negotiating with sin usually leads to falling into it rather than conquering it, so it’s better for a person to just get up and get away from the situation as quickly as he can! This is why Paul was constantly telling the early believers to “flee” evil influences (see 1 Corinthians 6:18; 1 Corinthians 10:14, 1 Timothy 6:11; 2 Timothy 2:22).

The word “flee” is the Greek word pheugo, which means to flee, to take flight, to run away, to run as fast as possible, or to escape. This means you don’t want to succumb to those temptations that are surrounding you. You just need to get up, put on your jacket, pick up your things, and get out of that place of temptation as fast as you can! Let your feet fly as you flee that situation! You’re not stuck there! You can get out! You can walk out of that place just as easily as you walked in there! Your feet work in both directions! God will make a way for you to escape those negative emotions if you really want to escape them. But you are the only one who can make the choice to jump through that escape hatch!

 

·         If you know you’re being tempted to angrily explode, walk out before it happens!

 

·         If you know you’re being tempted to get your feelings hurt, go somewhere else to avoid the offense!

 

·         If you know you’re being tempted to slip into a state of laziness, then get up and get busy!

 

·         If you know you’re being tempted to steal, get as far away as you can from the money or the coveted object!

 

·         If you know you’re being tempted to sexually sin, get out of that situation immediately!

 

·         If you know you’re being tempted to do anything wrong, it’s time for you to flee from the temptation!

Millions of Christians are held captive because they will not take the leap through that escape hatch. As a result, they have no joy, no peace, and no victory in their lives. They may be Christians, but they’re miserable because they haven’t made the choice to jump through the escape hatch God has provided for them and leave all those negative temptations and garbage behind.

If you’ll say yes to the Lord, He will show you how to walk out of this mess! You can avoid, evade, dodge, elude, shake off, get out of, and break away from every temptation! You are the only one who can choose to walk out of those killer mental attacks or negative situations. The moment you make that decision, your journey to freedom has begun!

So today the Lord is asking you: “Are you going to stay the way you are right now, or are you willing to take the proper steps to escape from this emotional temptation and demonic trap?” What is your answer? What are you going to do? God is waiting for you to decide if you will receive the freedom He is offering you or remain a hostage for the rest of your life. The choice is yours to make.

 

My Prayer for Today

 

Lord, help me find the strength to say no to my flesh and to flee from temptation when it tries to wrap its long tentacles around my soul and drag me into some kind of sin. I know what it’s like when sin calls out to my flesh, beckoning it to do something that is forbidden or wrong, but I don’t want to cooperate with it anymore. I want to walk free – to flee from sin and break free of its vicious grip. Help me bring my mind under the control of the Holy Spirit so I can think rationally when Satan tries to attack me through my mind, my emotions, or my senses.

I pray this in Jesus’ name!

 

My Confession for Today

 

I confess that God makes a way for me to escape temptation. I do not negotiate with sin! When it tries to call out to me, I get up and get out as quickly as I can. I flee, take flight, run away from, and escape as quickly as I can when I know the devil is attempting to lure me into his trap. That’s when I put on my jacket, pick up my things, and let my feet fly! God always makes a way for me to escape – and I always make the right choice to jump through that escape hatch!

 
I declare this by faith in Jesus’ name!

 

Questions for you to Consider

 

1. Can you think of times when you were tempted to yield to sin? Knowing that you needed to get up and get out of that place of temptation, did you stay and fall into some kind of sin? Were you sorry later that you didn’t flee when you had the chance?

 

2. What is the chief area of temptation that you struggle with more than any other right now?

 

3. In order for you to walk free from the struggle of that temptation, what changes do you need to make in your life?
