In most American Christian circles today, it is near heresy to say anything critical of the nation of Israel.  But it is important that our desire to do right, and to please God, be guided by wisdom and understanding.

Whether or not they offend you, I ask that you prayerfully read and consider the words of Pastor Rick Wiles.  The following is an excerpt from a broadcast on 6/10/11.

“I know this will come as a shock to Pastor John Hagee and all the Christian Zionists, but thousands of sodomites marched in the streets of Tel Aviv, Israel today.  You know, American Christians donate millions of dollars every year to Pastor Hagee so he can give it to Israel.  And  he doesn’t give it to Christians in the Middle East, whose families have been there for two thousand years, and he doesn’t give it to the Jews who believe in the name of Jesus Christ that they may evangelize their fellow Jews.  No, Pastor Hagee gives it to the Israelis who despise Jesus Christ.  It doesn’t make sense does it?

And while millions of American Christians worship the state of Israel like a golden idol, the Israelis themselves are promoting homosexuality–and I thought they are God’s chosen people.  No wonder the Bible calls Jerusalem ‘Sodom and Egypt’ in the last days.

So when will the American church discard this unbiblical theology and realize that if we do not preach the gospel of the kingdom of God to the Jews in Israel, they will burn in the Lake of Fire? So, if you say you love them, why don’t you tell them about Jesus?

Well anyway, thousands of homosexuals and lesbians, including drag queens, marched through the streets of Tel Aviv, Israel today, marking the conclusion of Israel’s ‘Gay Pride Week’.  The sodomy celebration started in Golda Meir Park, named after  the former Prime Minister.  Numerous Israeli politicians spoke to the Jewish homosexuals including Tel Aviv’s mayor, and various members of the City Council.

Tzipi Livni, former cabinet minister, said that all of Israel’s leaders and political parties were obligated to the struggle for equality for homosexuals.  She said “I have come to say that being part of the gay community, to be gay or lesbian or any other member of the community, is not a political choice, as is the choice to protect the gay community and its right for social equality.”  Livni added that “we are here to fight together against any phenomenon of hate, to fight for Israel’s values.”

So, Israel’s values is homosexuality, according to this high-ranking government official.  Member of the Knesset, Nitzan Horowitz, slammed the protest against the gay pride parade saying ” those who speak of an abomination, the abomination is their and he who speaks about illness, he is the sick one”.

So, this Jewish member of the Knesset said anybody who quotes the Bible, and says that homosexuality is an abomination–that person is the abomination.  And if you say it’s a sickness, you’re the one who is sick.

Now somebody should tell the people in Israel that Iran is getting ready to attack them, and they may want to repent of their homosexuality and idolatry before the bombs start flying and the tanks start rolling.

The Israeli Defense Force openly permits homosexuals to serve in the military, and there are thousands of gays in the Israeli army, including many senior Israeli officers.  But can you imagine King David going to war with homosexuals in his army?

Instead of blindly supporting Israel, the church of Jesus Christ should be crying out for the Jews to repent, to turn from their wicked sins, because there is no hope for them, except salvation through Jesus Christ.

And there is a big lie that is told every day on Christian TV and radio programs, and every week in thousands of churches.  It says that America’s security and prosperity depend upon the USA standing with Israel, and that is a lie.  Our security and prosperity depend upon the USA obeying the commandments of God!

Our right standing with God is not based upon us militarily backing a country that celebrates homosexuality and perversion, and denounces Christianity, and bans the conversion of Jews in the country.  The Israelis are spiritually lost, and they are no different today than the Israelites who were dancing around the golden calf when Moses came down from the mountain with the ten commandments written in stone.  So why would God expect us to uphold their rebellion?

America is under judgment right now, and it isn’t because we have turned our back on Israel in the Middle East.  We have turned our back on God, that’s the problem!  God doesn’t give permission to any nation to rebel against His commandments, and Jesus Christ is coming, in power and glory, to judge all the nations, and that includes the USA and Israel.  You will not be saved because you waved a Star of David flag from your front porch, or hung one on your church podium.  You will be saved because the blood of Jesus Christ marks your soul.

And I hear preachers on TV and radio all the time, extolling Israel like it’s an idol.  But the Bible says God retains the prerogative to bless or curse any nation, based on their obedience to Him, and modern day Israel is not obedient, and neither is the USA–and the only thing keeping the USA from collapsing is that there is still a sizable number of blood washed, born again, Spirit filled Christians in this land, who love the Lord with all their hearts, and are grieved over the sins of this nation.

Now, Jeremiah 18 says

“the word, which came to Jeremiah, from the Lord saying ‘Arise and go down to the potter’s house.  I will cause you to hear my words.’  Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was making something at the wheel.  And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hands of the potter, so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.  Then the word of the Lord came to me saying ‘Oh house of Israel’ . . .”

No, He didn’t say ‘Oh house of Iran, oh house of Persia, oh house of the Palestinians, He said ‘Oh house of Israel’ . . .

“‘can I not do with you as this potter?’ says the Lord.  ‘Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, oh house of Israel.  The instant I speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck it up, to pull down and destroy it, if that nation, against whom I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it.

And the instant I speak, concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it, if it does evil in my sight, so that it does not obey my voice, then I will relent concerning the good which I said I would benefit it.  Now therefore, speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem’ . . .”

He didn’t say ‘Moscow’, He didn’t say ‘Beijing’.  He is speaking to the people in Jerusalem.  He is literally speaking to the whole world saying

“‘thus says the Lord, behold I am fashioning a disaster and devising a plan against you.  Return now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.'”

Now what did they say?  The Bible says in Jeremiah 18 they said

“that is hopeless, so we will walk according to our own plans and we will, every one, obey the dictates of his evil heart.

Therefore, thus says the Lord ‘And now, among the Gentiles, who has heard such things?  The virgin of Israel has done a very horrible thing.  Will a man leave the snow water of Lebanon, which comes from the rock of the field, will the cold water be forsaken for strange water?  Because my people have forgotten me, and they have burned incense to worthless to idols, and they have caused themselves to stumble from the ancient paths, to walk in the paths and not on the highway, to make their land desolate and a perpetual hissing.  Everyone who passes by it will be astonished and shake his head.  I will scatter them, as with an east wind, before the enemy.  I will show them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity'”.

My friend, if you want to pray for Israel, pray for the true Israel–the Jews, and the Caucasians, and the Africans, and the Asians, and the Latinos, and all the races of men and women on the Earth who believe on the holy name of Jesus Christ, the son of the God of Israel.  Righteousness exalts a nation, sin is a reproach to any people.”

Pastor Rick Wiles  (from TruNews broadcast, 6-10-11)

If a nation–any nation–is doing things that displease God, do you really think that He will curse us if we do not continue to support their agenda?  By no means!  What He expects us to do, if we wish to be a blessing to them, is to pray for them and call them back to Him!!

First, a disclaimer: a lot of what I write is hard to hear.  If you are reading this, it is because God has brought you to my site.  If He has brought you here, it is because you are either strong enough to hear what I am saying . . . or hard-headed enough that you have to hear it this way, in order for God to get through to you.  There are other people out there, saying the same things, in gentler ways.  God could have directed you to them instead.  If you are here, you are here for a reason.

I was visiting the website of a friend and found a link to a vision by Michael Boldea Jr. I decided to read it, out of curiosity.  As I read, my spirit was moved– and even more so as I could see that the last part of the vision correlated with a vision that the Lord had given me a few days ago.

Afterwards, I  noticed that, on the side of the page, were links to about 30 or 40 visions.  Not knowing where to begin, I closed my eyes, said a quick prayer, and double clicked the mouse.  The name of the vision was ‘A Revelation‘ (and the first part of it pertained to Romania).   I had never read about this vision before, but what it said at the end was something that I wanted to share with you:

‘ “The sin of the great whore has spread throughout the world.  The stench of her sin has reached me and it will not be long until I will raise the whole Arab world, the Russians and other countries against her, that they may destroy her.” ‘

If you have read many of my posts, you know that this is the same message that God has been giving me to explain and reveal, as the events are playing out before us.  But this vision was twenty years ago!

Let me give you my interpretation:

‘the great whore’ (aka ‘the Whore of Babylon’ from the Bible book of Revelation) = the United States under the leadership of the ‘elite’ (the corrupt people who run the multinational corporations and lead our government–most of them being from wealthy and politically connected families [Rockefeller, Bush, etc.]–with links to Illuminati, Bohemian Grove rituals, Freemasons, etc.)

the whole Arab world = the Islamic coalition that is rising up out of the (soon to be) ashes of the current Middle East.  This coalition is primarily led by ‘radical Muslims’ of the Shia faction.  The names of their organizations include Al Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood.  What most people don’t realize is that many Muslim Brotherhood operatives are already present in America (CAIR and their allies).  Their goal is global jihad, and to bring America under Sharia Law.

Islam is not a religion!  It is a political-religious form of government.  In Islam there is NO ‘separation of church and state’.  Many people do not realize that when we remove the ten commandments as the cornerstone of our society, our laws will  no longer have a foundation.  (There has to be some basis for determining what is ‘right’ and what is ‘wrong’.)  This creates a vacuum that Sharia law will be quick to fill.

When we warn about Sharia law taking root in America, you have to understand that it is not as simple as it sounds.  It is a package deal.  Sharia in America means our (new) laws will not be based on God’s ten commandments, but on the teachings of Muhammad (which came straight from the devil himself). Look at law enforcement in Islamic nations if you want to see how this plays out . . . flogging, stoning, amputation, beheading, etc.

You might also want to do a bit of research as to what sort of activities are illegal under Sharia law . . . (which brings us to a seemingly universal law–if  you won’t exercise self control, you will find yourself  being controlled . . . let our lax and ‘tolerant’ society consider the implications . . . ).  Remember, under the Taliban administration music was not even allowed.  If America will not submit itself to the kind, just, merciful and loving leadership of God then we will find ourselves slaves to a very harsh master indeed!

For those of you who may be homosexual, and pride yourself on helping to dismantle the laws on which American society was founded–the ‘joke’ is on you.  For those radical feminists who have done much to undermine American culture–the ‘joke’ is on you too.

Radical feminists, homosexuals, and every other type of anarchist: you are unknowingly paving the way for Sharia law.  First  you do your part to destroy the basis of our current laws and Constitution, then the Islamists will follow behind you and insert their law into the void.  But don’t think you will have a place in the new Islamunist Amerika . . . look a little closer at Sharia law and you will find that homosexuals quickly receive the death penalty, and women . . . who out of men’s necessity are suffered to live . . . are stripped of their rights and covered from head to toe in black!  Don’t think it can happen here?

What is happening right now in the Middle East will be jumping across that vast ocean soon, and will be happening in our backyard!  In Oklahoma City, and in Michigan, skirmishes are already taking place.  Our enemies are here, and their fingers are on the trigger.  Watch what happens, as our economy continues to falter, then crumbles.

What does Russia have to do with it?  Understand that already Syria is a Russian proxy.  Russia has never ceased to be an enemy of the United States.  It benefits them that we think we are fighting someone else, while all the while they are the ones providing them material support.  Russia–Syria–Iran.  This is a tightly woven coalition of enemies.  But don’t forget that China is definitely part of the mix.

Doubt this vision?  Read Ezekiel 38 and keep in mind that ‘Israel’ refers to the ten tribes that, thousands of years ago, became a separate kingdom from ‘Judah’.  (The nation that, today, calls itself ‘Israel’ should technically be called ‘Judah’, because this is what God calls them.)  The descendants of the ten tribes that formed the Nation of Israel dispersed and migrated around the globe.  The easiest way to identify them today is to say ‘the Western Nations’.  Remember that even Ahmadinejad calls America ‘the great Satan’ and calls the country which calls itself Israel ‘the little Satan’.

With that in mind read Ezekiel 38.  This great war that is described in Ezekiel 38 will be brought by the Muslims to the Western nations.  This horrible war will be fought on our own soil.  Notice who the nations are that come against us–the Islamic confederation that is forming, and Russia.

A quick note: Not everyone from the Middle East is Arab–nor are the Arabs the primary aggressors against America.  Right now, in broad terms, the primary types of Muslim Middle Easterners are the Arabs (mostly Sunni Muslims) in the southern part of the Middle East and the Persians (Iranians and Shia Muslims).   But that is changing.  Shia Muslims have basically ‘declared war’ on Sunni Muslims, who they feel are not far from being infidels because of their more moderate views.

What we are witnessing in the news today, in the Middle East, is the overthrow of secular and Sunni Muslim leaders (who have historically been more moderate and more likely to be allies of the Western Nations) and their replacement with radical Shiite rulers (such as the Muslim brotherhood) that are tightly linked with Iran’s radical leader, Ahmadinejad.  I believe the newly Shia led nations will become part of a revived Persian Empire.

This Persian Empire, as it rises, is going to be very bold and very violent.  Like a snowball rolling downhill, the victories it is achieving  now, in overtaking governments throughout the Muslim world, are going to give it the size and momentum to come crashing into the Western nations very soon.

Let’s hope I’m wrong about Obama holding the door wide open for it as it approaches.

Christians, take heart . . . there is more to the vision:

‘ “Tell my people to be prepared and be careful,” says the Lord, “for everything I have decided will happen*.  Do not say in your hearts that the Lord has said many things that have not happened yet because all things are decided by Me and everything has it’s appointed time.  Draw closer to the Lord your God and cease doing evil things that I may give you victory.  I the Lord will work in ways that you cannot even imagine, but be holy.” ‘

* ‘ “I will raise the whole Arab world, the Russians and other countries against [the USA], that they may destroy her.” ‘

Something Ominous On The Horizon

Now is the time for courageous men to stand firm.  Your country is intentionally being destroyed from within.  The military is being co-opted to assist in the process.  Your Commander-In-Chief is a man who not only does not defend The Constitution, but seeks to nullify it.

Undeniably, those of you in the military are in a difficult and confusing position.  It is important to reaffirm your priorities:

  1. God
  2. Country

Historically, there was no conflict between doing what you were commanded, and maintaining those priorities.  Today however, everything has been turned upside down.

Contrary to what  you are hearing, homosexuality is NOT an alternative lifestyle that is acceptable to God.

Since World War II, the wealthy, influential American ‘elite’ have co-opted the military and used it to further their personal economic agendas.  Our servicemen have been used as pawns in their game of global domination.  (I believe that this has been a factor in some of the recent suicides among military personnel.)

Now, our government has been given into the hands of a new ‘elite’–a group of very radical anti-American individuals who have been at work since the 1960s, with the backing of a few wealthy men.  Their aim is to overthrow America.

I believe they intend to destroy the existing military–both by exhausting them, leaving them in indefensible positions, and now: causing them to abandon their posts.  Simultaneously, they are sending signals to America’s enemies, that America is ripe for plundering.

It is essential to see the bigger picture.  We are all involved in a much greater war–a war between good and evil, between God and Satan.  We are in the final days of this battle, as Satan now has the means to consolidate his power over mankind.

It is imperative that each of us seek God as to what He would have us to do.  I will offer  no advice in this respect.  Each man has a different path to walk.

I imagine that some will be called to stay in the military and fight, first for righteousness, secondly for our Constitution and the protection of the American people. With the current political climate, I firmly believe that each of you that stay are going to be called on to make a stand in defense of righteousness.  That stand may very well endanger your political career and pension.

I also believe that others will be called to leave the military.  God’s judgment is upon America.  Defending a nation of unrepentant sinners with a grossly immoral national lifestyle is an indefensible position.  God may very well call some of you out, so that you do not ‘partake of the sins of,’ or suffer the judgment that is poured out on, the ungodly.  It will be vital that you seek God as to how he would lead  you to live, as you see our Constitutional freedoms being taken away.

Our president is making war upon the military.  Simultaneously, I believe that he is putting together his own army–one made up of men that will not serve God, nor uphold the Constitution, but rather, will be intensely loyal to him and do his bidding.  We have seen this happen before.  Those who ignore history do so at their own peril.

THE GAYING OF AMERICA
Officer won’t sign order for troop indoctrination
Asks to be relieved of command over repeal of ‘gay’ ban in military

If a homosexual is not content

to serve in the military

without openly expressing

his or her sexual preference,

then I question

whether that person’s primary allegiance

is to their country,

or to furthering the homosexual agenda.

“Folks are also unaware that US Army Spc.  Bradley Manning, a radical ‘gay’ activist who marched in ‘gay’ pride parades, is the prime suspect in WikiLeaks.  It is alleged that Manning, an intelligence analyst in Iraq, sold out his country by transmitting classified military and diplomatic information which was released by WikiLeaks’ owner Julian Assange.  Being openly ‘gay,’ Manning should have been denied the opportunity to serve.  If the military had done a more thorough job when conducting background investigations, Bradley Manning would not be facing potential charges of treason.

Why did Bradley Manning sell out his country?  He was depressed.  The record shows that he was angry over the Army’s failure to accommodate his “sexual orientation.”  Plus he had gone through a breakup with his lover and, after striking a fellow soldier in the face, the Army demoted him a rank. Since he felt he had no future he decided that sharing classified information about his government’s foreign policy might “actually change something.””

“You too will become drunk;

All your fortresses are like fig trees with their first ripe fruit;

The gates of your land are wide open to your enemies;

The repeal of  ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’  is just one more phase of Obama’s invitation to the rest of the world to ‘please decimate America’.

It may also be a clever ploy to recruit outcasts, with the goal of building an army that will be intensely loyal to him.

Gay Clowns?

Others have speculated that it may be for very dark reasons that Obama would want a military comprised of people who already–according to the Bible–have had their consciences seared.

(It brings to mind the number of Obama appointees that were discovered to have  not been paying their taxes–enough of them to make one wonder if that were a prerequisite to serving in his administration, the same administration that has brought much darkness to America in the past two years.)

Whatever the case, I believe it is one more action that is going to invite God’s judgment on America.

Or, perhaps it IS God’s judgment on America!

Christians, Vampires And Dragons

Why Do You Insist We Repeal DADT?

Homosexuality: Why Is It Such A Big Deal?

You can’t be a follower of Jesus and be a homosexual.

I can’t follow Jesus and be a thief, or a murderer.  If I am a thief and want to follow Jesus, I must leave stealing behind.  If I am a murderer and want to follow Jesus, I must leave killing behind.

When we follow Jesus, we put our ‘flesh’ (sinful desires and actions) to death . . .  deny ourselves . . . ‘die to’ our old selves . . . are ‘born again’ . . . born of the spirit  . . . have a new life . . .  We become new creations!

When we accept Jesus’ death, on our behalf, we must come to Him on His terms. We confess our sins, repent of them, and don’t practice them any longer.  He forgives our sins and washes them away, and we are made new.

You may argue that being a homosexual is who you are–I argue that is who you are because it is what you do.

Contrary to some people’s arguments, people are not born homosexual.  If you have the normal XX or XY chromosomes, your gender is not in question.  (If you ARE a hermaphrodite, or have chromosomal problems, that’s a different story.)

Here are reasons you may not feel comfortable with your gender:

  • The way you are raised and treated.
  • The expectations or prejudices you are exposed to.
  • The popularity and promotion of homosexuality in our culture.
  • Peer pressure.

But here are what I believe are the three most important factors:  being wounded in your early relationships, being molested by someone of the same gender (remembered or  not), demonic influence.

There are a number of ways these factors can work together, although any one of them can lead you to the conclusion, and feeling, that you are gay.  But, when they are combined, their effect is greatly multiplied, and you will feel an almost irresistible pull towards homosexuality.

One of the common ways it plays out is:

1. A child is rejected by his father (living with rejection is more damaging than being abandoned).  Young children trust adults and see them almost as gods.  If a young child is receiving the message, from an adult, that he is not worthy, he may disown himself (or aspects of himself).  If he is a bit older, he may hate the adult and vow not to be like him.  Either way, if a boy does not have a healthy relationship with his father (or an adult male), he will have an emptiness that will cause him to gravitate towards ‘father figures’ in his life.  This may be adult males, or boys that are older than him that seem more masculine to him than he feels.

Here is where a problem begins.  Young, wounded boys are very alluring to predatory men (including pedophiles) and delinquent boys.  A wounded boy is a magnet for sick and perverse males, and he is soon going to end up in bad company.  He doesn’t have to be molested to become homosexual–he may idolize the man or boy he follows, to the extent that he falls in love with him.  The whole issue is that he doesn’t love and accept himself.

The irony is–some well meaning single mothers introduce predatory men into their wounded son’s life, without being aware of it. A single mother has her own issues, and she may be very relieved to have found a man who shows a fatherly interest in her son.

These are the worst situations, because the boy is unable to extricate himself from the relationship, and is unlikely to tell his mother what is happening.  He will likely be at the man’s mercy for many years.  This man, given enough time, will likely mold the boy into a replica of himself.  Undoing the damage, if the grown up boy is willing, may occupy much of the rest of his life.

2.  Wounded boys are needy and vulnerable, magnets for pedophiles, and very likely to be molested. They pretty well have a sign on their forehead saying “victim”, which predators quickly home in on.  Each molestation makes another one more likely.

The boy is molded physically, mentally, and emotionally by these experiences, and logically forms an identity as inferior, a victim, and as a homosexual.  He does not realize that someone else appointed this identity to him, instead he believes they recognized what he already must have been–not true!!  The only thing he was is needy and vulnerable.

3.  Demonic influence–I think this is one of the biggest reasons that homosexuality is so commonplace today. Demonic forces promote sin in every form.  Demonic forces actively deceive, tempt, and seduce people into sin.  Just as we may have ‘guardian angels’, people are accompanied by demonic spirits.  Demonic beings act persistently in a person’s life, usually to the extent that they are successful in luring him into sin.

Demonic spirits can gain entrance to a person’s life (not the same as actually being possessed) through things they partake of (including music, movies, magazines, etc.), through interactions with other people (who ‘entertain’ demons in their life), and by chance.  MANY of these demonic beings are with us, in our sinful culture today, and they are a powerful force behind the promotion of homosexuality.

Homosexuality is neither normal nor natural.  God says it is an abomination to Him.  He also says that, when He is totally disgusted with a person (to paraphrase), He will give them over to a ‘reprobate mind’ and homosexuality.

With that in mind, does homosexuality really sound like something people are born with?  Do you think God would create someone that way, so that He would turn His back on him from the day he was born?  No.  Absolutely not!!  The temptation to homosexuality, however, may find its way into your life at a very early age.

I believe that part of the recent increase in demonic activity in America, is a concerted Satanic attack on children.  With a culture that lies to us and says that homosexuality is normal and that speaking against it is hateful (or criminal)–how many parents are going to steer their young children away from homosexuality when they are being tempted and deceived by demonic spirits (or other kids, or society, etc. for that matter)?

By trying to be ‘politically correct’, we are leaving our vulnerable children open to the most vile temptations and influences.  These sins, that we are afraid to speak against, have the power to imprison our children in chains of heavy bondage, and open the door to other powerful delusions and doctrines of Satan.

Parents:  we live in perilous, vile, and deceptive times–you had better get serious about protecting your children from evil!!

‘Christian parents’:  if you won’t teach your children right from wrong, and the truth from a lie–who do you think will?  And who do you think God will hold responsible?

Homosexuality: Why Is It Such A Big Deal?

Unconditional Salvation?

It’s too much to expect people, who haven’t yielded themselves to the authority of Christ, to accept ‘because God says so’ as a reason.  But, ultimately that IS the reason.  I’ll try to shed a bit of light on why God says that homosexuality is wrong.

God made the world, and all that is in it, and it belongs to Him.  He gets to make the rules and set the boundaries.  Some of you aren’t going to read any farther than this–and THAT is your problem.  You don’t accept the authority of God.

Unlike the culture that we live in, that defines people’s worth by their position, wealth and accomplishments, the kingdom of God is open to all.  God does not seek to hide His truth, revealing it to only a few chosen individuals with a title and capital letters following their name.  He has made it simple enough that a child, or a mentally challenged person can understand.  He has written His story all over creation.

When God speaks, there are layers of meaning in His words.  Beyond that, He speaks to us through the natural world, and through patterns and foreshadowings.  This universe is His creation, His work of art, and all of it is imbued with a message.  Over and over again, in harmony, His creation speaks of Him and His nature, so that everyone will have an awareness and an understanding of His presence, His character, and the unspoken rules of how to live in harmony with Him.

Satan was not pleased with the nature of God and thought himself better than his creator.  So, he set himself in rebellion against God, to try to remake God’s creation in his image.  Wherever Satan has been, the wondrous masterpiece of God has been blurred, smeared, marred and painted over, in his attempt to silence God’s communication with man, and make his own message preemminent.

Satan, unlike man, has no power of creation within him.  All he is able to do is pervert what God has created.  Everywhere he has influence, the creation and purposes of God have been perverted.

God’s plan for our sexuality must be very sacred, and powerful, because it is an area that Satan targets most often, and that seems to yield him the most power through its perversion. So, we probably have to look beyond the message Satan has painted over the surface, and beneath the smudges and smears where he has tried to obliterate God’s plan, to get a glimpse of what may lie beneath.  I believe his plan has been two-pronged: to downplay the power and sanctity of sexuality as God created it, and to play up the ‘merits’ of his version of perverted sexuality.

God’s design was for sex to be between a man and his wife–only.  If that’s all it is, for a lifetime, then we must not be experiencing the depth of what He intended for us.

Having grown up promiscuous, I can only guess at what the love life of a deeply committed, monogamous, married couple, who were virgins on their wedding night must be like.

Marriage is a symbol of Jesus’ relationship to Christians.  The relationship between a believer and Jesus is one of deep caring, sacrificial love, lifelong loyalty and fidelity, honesty, tenderhearted devotion, patience, protection, forgiveness, kindness, humility, respect, trust and complete acceptance. This kind of a relationship gives birth to a depth of intimacy that heals the soul, provides health, security, peace and joy.  Outside of this kind of love, no one will ever reach their full potential.

Besides a person’s relationship to Jesus, marriage is the only other environment where a relationship of such depth could exist.  This environment, with such a depth of love and commitment, is necessary for people to bring forth children and raise them in such a way that they can reach their full potential, and go on to create the same kind of relationship upon which they build their own family.  A community, built of families such as this, is what God had planned for mankind.

Into this framework, God wove his design for human sexuality.  I believe that sex between a man and wife was to be a kind of superglue that could permeate every space between them and bond them firmly together in unity–a means of complete connection, a deep form of communication, a continuous affirmation.  I think it was meant to provide a level of satisfaction that we can no longer come close to understanding.  We are so far from what God created for us, because of sin–in ourselves, our culture, and our world–that it must seem like a fairy tale to imagine it.

When two wounded people come together, especially if there has been promiscuity on the part of one or the other, it is nearly impossible to attain the level of loyalty, fidelity, honesty, devotion, patience, forgiveness, kindness, humiliy, respect, trust and complete acceptance that form the sturdy structure in which such a profound intimacy can thrive.  I believe, without this depth of intimacy, that sex cannot completely
fulfill the purpose God intended.

You’d have to understand my history to know that I am in no way judging.  I am a broken, wounded person myself.  I was never able to sustain a successful marriage and my own children grew up in a ‘broken home’.

I also am not intending to add to anyone’s despair, because when the intimacy and sexuality of a couple are not filling the spaces between them, as God intended, it can be DEVASTATINGLY painful.

Nor am I saying that it is a lost cause, if this describes your relationship, because God can redeem all things.  Perhaps this will give you an understanding of how to pray, and help you to understand that it is not outside your marriage where you will find satisfaction.  Rather, it is through a supernatural work of God to renovate the structure of the relationship between you and your spouse, that the environment can be created where this kind of intimacy and sex can be birthed and grow to maturity.

Another aspect that is important to understand, is that God didn’t intended it to be about the sex itself.  Not about the sex act, the orgasm, or the measure of ‘sexual satisfaction’ achieved.  It IS about the depth of feeling, love, vulnerability and connection between you and your spouse.  It is like the difference between

  • listening to the words someone is saying, taking into account their volume and tone, to understand the message they are trying to convey or
  • only listening to the volume and tone, thereby completely missing the message

Please forgive me for being explicit, but it’s not about focusing on the technique or position, but rather holding each other, looking into each others eyes and talking to each other about things that are deeply personal, as you make love.

So much has blurred what God created our sexuality to be, and the context in which He intended it, that few of us find it.  Then it becomes easy to be dissatisfied with what we have and look elsewhere.

Here is something I observed, as homosexuality made its way into the mainstream.  It seemed to start first with the wounded souls who had been living a secret life of homosexuality.  Then, as time went on, a number of older men joined up.  I could be wrong, but I sense that these men were heterosexuals who had not been satisfied in their marriage, had sex outside of marriage and didn’t find fulfillment there, and were seeking something new.

This is the problem inherent with focusing on the sex act, outside of the full context that God intended–it doesn’t fulfill us, and we grow bored.  First we try to spice things up with our spouse–new positions, toys, pornography.  Then we’re tempted to look outside the marriage, then on to the next thing . . .  and we come to the conclusion that what we had is all that God intended, and that it just isn’t enough.  (But we haven’t really had what He intended!!)

Not surprisingly, it’s easy for Satan to paint his version over top of God’s original design, and we’re ready to try it–whatever the ‘flavor of the day’ is*–believing it will bring the satisfaction we crave.

Perhaps now you can see why homosexuality, or sex outside of marriage, isn’t what God intended.  And you may be of the impression now that homosexuality isn’t God’s best, but is still acceptable as a consolation prize for those who are not blessed enough to have found the ‘real thing’. To be honest, I probably haven’t said enough to actually convince you that there is anything wrong with homosexuality.

Here’s the thing, I’ll lay it out for you, but it may very well not convince you.  Our culture is so perverse and depraved now, that purity seems ridiculous and old fashioned.  I’m not going to contrast homosexuality with heterosexuality, or even with a monogamous marriage.  I believe American heterosexuality is now so far from what God intended, that it is a mere ‘skip and a jump’ from there to homosexuality.  Instead, I will contrast homosexuality with what God created for mankind in the first place.

First of all, physically, homosexuality is a filthy practice.  The amount of disease causing organisms you are exposed to during the act, and the manner in which those organisms are transported around, leaves you vulnerable to every sort of disease and infection, throughout your entire body.

While we don’t adhere to the laws in the Biblical book of Leviticus, at the very least they should serve as good guidelines for sanitary living.   (To get an idea of what I’m talking about, you can read Leviticus 15.)  Leviticus was written in a period of time before modern medicine.  Good hygiene and sanitation were vital to keeping sickness at bay. What may now seem like extreme measures, were in fact necessary to ensure that a community of people, living in close contact, could remain healthy.

  • So, one of the reasons God declared it to be sin is that it affects your health, and that of your family and your community.

Leviticus also reveals to us that certain acts or events rendered a person unclean in a way that an atonement had to be made.  Because God actually lived among them, a person could literally drop dead when near Him, if they were unclean.

  • Thus, another reason is for your own protection–that the physical presence of God wouldn’t literally knock you dead.  Also, for your family and community, so that God wouldn’t have to withdraw His presence from them because of your sin.

Beyond that were actions so displeasing to God, so dishonorable and/or perverse, that the person committing them was to be cut off from their community, by capital punishment.  Homosexuality is listed among those actions.  (If it doesn’t seem like that big a deal, it’s because we are already very corrupt sexually, and can no longer discern it.)

  • This was to protect the community/society.  It is based on the understanding that corruption spreads, and that all things reproduce in their own image.  Left unchecked, sinful behaviors will be accepted and adopted by an entire community.

From a purely logical point of view, and given the description above (of the kind of communities and families God intends), it is easy to see that homosexuality would displace male-female marriages and eat into the very foundation upon which society is based.

There are two more reasons I’ll cover, and they are the most important ones.  But, I’ve listed the reasons in reverse order, because most people who are held captive by sin are going to see their importance in reverse order.  When we are in bondage to sin, our first concern is ourself–and our last concern is the authority of God.

As I explained at the beginning of the post, God speaks to us through the natural world and through patterns and foreshadowings.  This universe is His creation, His work of art, and all of it is imbued with a message. In harmony, His creation speaks of Him and His nature, so that everyone will have an awareness and an understanding of His presence, His character, and the unspoken rules of how to live in harmony with Him.

Homosexuality is one of the things that perverts the picture.  It erases the message of how Jesus is related to the believer (husband and wife), and it replaces the message of cleanliness & holiness with one of filth & depravity.  It obscures the pattern God has laid out for the family and society.

That God is concerned with the picture, the pattern and the unspoken message, is reflected in his condemnation of other behaviors too.  In and of itself, it does not seem like a big deal for a woman to dress as a man, or a man as a woman, but ‘cross dressing’ is forbidden.  So is planting a field with two kinds of seed, or wearing clothing woven of two kinds of material. (If someone can show me a logical reason for this, please do!)  These things reflect a pattern that God wants to convey, and wants to have repeated.  His desire is for everything in His creation to be cohesive and give forth a harmonious, consistent message.

And that sums up the most important reason–HE is the creator, and HE gets to make the rules!  That’s the way He wants it, so that’s the way it shall be!

What great artist, upon finding his masterpiece painting vandalized and corrupted, would go ahead and exhibit it anyway?  Wouldn’t he instead be furious that his message had been lost?  Would he honor the one who erased his message by displaying their message instead?

Satan is the author of all perversion.  God will not shrug and walk away, and let Satan obliterate His message and replace it with an unholy one that flows from his heart full of hatred and rebellion.  Not as long as there is still one living soul left on earth whose heart is open to knowing God and knowing the truth.

It isn’t homosexuality, per se, that separates a person from God.  We were all born into sin and are destined to be separated from God, unless we accept the atoning death of Jesus Christ on our behalf.

But, although I can understand WHY homosexuals indulge in this sin, I can’t have an attitude of tolerance to it, and here’s why:  When a person sins, it is like a rock being dropped into a still lake–ripples move outwards from the impact, in all directions, eventually  impacting distant shores.  Although it is the person who practices the sin that faces judgment for it, countless other people are affected, to varying degrees, by their actions.

To those of you who say ‘that’s not fair, God made me this way’–I have to disagree.  Very few of you are hermaphrodites.  God would not establish homosexuality as a sin, then create you to be homosexual.

It is apparent to me that there are some sins that have a definite spiritual dimension to them.  When one engages in these sins they open the door to demonic oppression and/or possession.  Until one is ‘delivered’ from the demonic influences that accompany these sins, they will be continuously tempted and tormented.  Among these sins, I believe, are serial murder, homosexuality, pedophilia, incest, and bestiality, among others.

BUT, even if I am mistaken about demonic involvement, and mistaken about someone being ‘born that way’, consider this:  It is not unfair for God to require that a homosexual not engage in homosexuality anymore!

Adulterers are required not to commit adultery anymore!  We are all forbidden to have sex outside of marriage!  Thieves are required to stop stealing!  Murderers are required to stop murdering!  We are all commanded to stop lying!  The whole sum of the matter is that we are to yield ourselves to the authority of God and live by His rules.

When we accept Jesus’ death on our behalf, we must REPENT of our sins (all of us, every form of sin).  We must renounce our sins and turn away from them, living as images of Him.  By His grace and mercy He did not crush us while we were in our sins, but instead He provided a way that we could be forgiven and made righteous.  But, we must die to our former way of life.

There is a particular hardness of heart towards God, and an unwillingness to repent of the sin, among homosexuals.  This is because:

‘ . . . they neither glorified Him as God, nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.’

‘They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator . . .

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts.  Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.  In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another.  Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, He gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.’

* On the heels of homosexuality going mainstream, acceptance of pedophilia is in the works.  Then we have bestiality and incest trailing not far behind.  Hollywood is now in the process of beginning to desensitize us to both, as it did with homosexuality before it fully emerged.  I’m not yet ready to lay odds on which one will be accepted first.

This may sound extreme, but watch.  It is the natural progression when a culture turns its back on God and walks the other way.
