As an apostle for these modern times, I see the spirit of error has crept into the church. The Bible speaks about the coming deception and strong delusion because people choose unrighteousness opposed to living wholly committed for Jesus Christ. I have not seen any gay animals because it is not their nature to have same sex existence, however man has blatantly corrupted the Holy Scriptures to fulfill the lust of the flesh. God judged Sodom and Gomorrah for there perversion and vile desires of being with the same sex. Who are we as a nation to rebel against the Word of God? God will judge the false prophets who do Satan's bidding. As far as that so called women of God, Jesus said, "many will come to me in that day saying Lord have we not prophesied in thy name, have we not cast out devils in thy name and have we not performed wonderful works in thy name and he will profess unto them, depart from me, ye who work iniquity. There are many people doing things in the name of the Lord and Satan is very busy, but before it is all said and done, somebody is going to burn in the LAKE OF FIRE because they refuse to let Jesus truly save them from their sins. God is not the author of confusion and he is not slack concerning his promises as some men count slackness. The day is here where the Lord will be shutting down all of this mess. My encouragement to those who are sick and tired of the foolishness is to hold on to the truth and get in a state of spiritual warfare so you can pull those demonic strongholds down. The true Church has power over these false prophets and corrupted spiritual leaders. Use what God has given you and began to tread over the serpent and the scorpion in Jesus name.
if god knows all thing why did he allow this to happen why destroy the city and not the sprit makes no sense god made every man gay straite don't he know all smh man made religion is against gays
This is heartbreaking... the Bible says to know them who labor among us. Is anyone praying? Is anyone hearing from God? No one knew? Or, are we so consumed with ministry, and the affairs of this world... I will pray that these "theologians" will not merely teach and preach the Word. Let us LIVE the Word, be Living Epistles. I believe the Holy Bible, Romans 1 really makes it plain. It also lets us know that when the Word of God is continually ignored or one continually overrides the Word. One might take on a reprobate mind and that is just the way it is. I did not write the Book. I am covered by the blood of Jesus and strive to walk in the spirit of liberty, that is, free from sin. Jesus said, there will be many that say "Lord, Lord, didn't I prophesy in your name, heal in your name..." and Jesus will say, "Depart from me, I never knew you." Ms. Allyson D. Nelson, you can be anointed... so was Samson, and he still laid his head in Delilahs lap. Do not be fooled by the gifts, or the following of your ministry. The gifts come without repentence and many having itching ears may follow you. But, be not deceived, God is Holy, and yes, mankind is created in the image and likeness of God, most notably by the power of CHOICE. Jesus chose to take on a human-suit, deny His flesh daily and do the will of the Heavenly Father. Jesus is soon to come... the love of many shall wax cold and judgement will begin in the House of God. I pray that we will abhor evil and cleave to that which is good. God is Good!
Yes, we can believe that God is love and that HE loves us all, but that does not mean that HE loves our actions. And, if our actions are the opposite of what HIS Word says, then how do we show God that we love HIM and reverence HIS Word. If i know my husband loves me and yet i reject or go against that which is most important to him, how am i showing him that i appreciate his love for me. Love is a two way street, and if we love God we will keep His commandments.
Often times we will keep silent about the homosexual lifestyle so as not to appear judgmental. It is my deep belief that when we are silent, we are sending the message of condoning, and no one likes that message more than satan does. We must separate the person from the sin and share with them the Truth in the Word of God. When we are led by the Spirit of God to do this, we don't judge... we love. We must understand that it is impossible to love someone while withholding from them the Truth. The Truth is ultimate display of Love.... that is why God, Who so loved the world, could send His only begotten Son, the TRUTH, to reveal to us how much HE, GOD, loves us.
We must also bear in mind what the Word says in Romans 1st chapter...* FOR THIS CAUSE GOD GAVE THEM UP UNTO VILE AFFECTIONS: FOR EVEN THEIR WOMEN DID CHANGE THE NATURAL USE INTO THAT WHICH IS AGAINST NATURE. (Note: There was a time in this country when homosexuality was considered a CRIME AGAINST NATURE, and one could go to jail for committing such an act)
Romans 1: 27... AND LIKEWISE ALSO THE MEN, LEAVING THE NATURAL USE OF THE WOMAN, BURNED IN THEIR LUST ONE TOWARD ANOTHER, WORKING THAT WHICH IS UNSEEMLY, AND RECEIVING IN THEMSELVES THAT RECOMPENSE OF THEIR ERROR WHICH WAS MEET.
The Bible is very clear as to what God laid out concerning that lifestyle. There is no justifying it by either sensitivity or omission. Yes, sin is sin, but a perverted spirit is a spirit that seeks inclusion, and its pursuit is to invade and control. It is little wonder that this perverted and satanic spirit is going more and more after the youths in their moments of hormonal transitioning. And, without the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit of Jesus in their lives to ward off the inveigling effect of this vile spirit, these youngsters fall prey to these misunderstood urges.
We , as true Christians, need to be more open and caring about what is going on in this society, and the church, that those under bondage may see and better understand what exactly it is that is quickly becoming a plague in this country. Homosexuality is a demonic plague of vile and unclean spirits, and they are setting us up to be likened unto Sodom and Gomorrah. Say what we will, God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (And weep) We cannot continue to be so sensitive that we keep silence. After all, if we continue on the path we are on, that next generation will be non-existent because same sex relationships cannot carry out the WILL of GOD... be fruitful and multiply. Homosexuality is a game that the devil has folk playing, and guess what... he aiin't playin'.
Just sharing. Peace.
I think Bishop Abram should step down! this is not an act of God. Sodom and gormorah was destroyed because people became lovers of there own selves. When u are involved in same sex in the church you are departing spirits.
I want to thank all who have commented on this subject to know that I will see you all in hell if u truly believe the rhetoric you spout. judge not lest you be judged...love your neighbor....love one another....we are saved only by grace and by the death of Jesus Christ....even though we sin, because of jesus taking on all of our sins in the world, we are saved. I love god with all my heart and soul. I live for god who walks beside me with the holy spirit daily. I am never alone. God is with me. Amen and Amen.
god bless all your comments.
one day we shall all see God. hope I can open the door for u so that u can get in. prob will see me there first. I will greet you in love and hospitality. Not judging you. but knowing if u are not there its because of your act of bigotry.
So many people are quick to have something to say, but you are not the one living that lifestyle and dealing with those feelings of wanting or being with the same sex. You say live by the scripture, but how when the scripture was written upteenth years before me and you? So many generations have put there take on the bible and have preached to so many. No one is going to be correct all the time, because they wasn't there when the bible was written. Only GOD can judge and only Jesus can preach as I was told and truly believe. You read the Bible, you take what you want from it, and live how you see fit. No pastor, community, or human being period can tell you how to live your life. To each its own. Leave this woman alone, and let her find her own way.
Well well, the bible is filling it self quick. and who is going to follow her after this, unless she repent and get deliver for real, real. God is not please, and this not making a clean slate for her. she need pray. this make us see why they say don't put your trust in man or woman they will let you down, but God want.
So we can shack, have sex before marriage, kill, steal, rob, etc...if nothing in the bible really mean what it says...I am really sick of this it is confusing those that don't understand God and Jesus and making people leave the church, which is not good and not of God. You had a husband but now a woman, as if God is a spirit of confusion or don't know what he want for her...Lord Jesus come quickly.
The separation of sheep and goat is taking place and Jesus will be returning sooner than we think. AS usual people justify their living based on what they assume the bible says. If we can live any kind of way I really don't understand what is the purpose of Jesus and us serving God...if everything people do is not sin and is okay with God, I am starting to wonder about it but I better keep my eye on God and His word so that I don't get pulled into satan game...
The sad part is the fact, with all the wisdom of the Word of God, she didn't get understanding. We often attempt to take away the truth and the power of the Word to fit our mess. We cannot add or subtract from the Word of God!!! We have to pray that more people who are holding positions as Clergy in whatever capacity would examine themselves if their lifestyle is not line up with the Word of God to humbly and fearfully resign. God can restore. He is a God of second chances. Repent , sister and get on the right side of the track.
This is the sign of the times that we are living in. People are calling what is right wrong, and, what is wrog right. They all have a logical explanation to explain what they are doing, However, at the end of the day, it it wrong and contrary to the word of God. Some will recall when white people in America explained that it was in the Bible and God's will for blacks to be enslaved. This suited their ow interests, not God's. Prayerfully, and, soon they will see the light of the truth and have a desire to walk in it. The word does say that all have sined and come short of the glory of God. Everyone was born with a sin orientation. The gift of God is eternal life through his son JESUS!!
i totally agree with all the above comments..what is hurtful to me is those who want to enter the church and become saved are taken aback by the double mindedness going on in the church. We don't want to offend or make anyone feel bad for being gay but at the same time we can't just accept everything to appease someone's feelings. At the end of the day the WORD has to be the final factor in how we live our lives.I am no where near perfect and have struggles in other areas but i don't seek acceptance of my sin. I can never do that. I wish there was a way we (Christians) could show love towards gay people and still hold to the bible way without bashing them. Someone who is gay will never understand GOD'S view of their behavior if all they see and hear is hate and contradicting behavior by those who love the LORD. I can be your friend but if you ask me about GOD'S truth i will tell you.
I'm glad to see that others actually READ the Word and know that this mess is out of order! On ALL accounts she is completely against scripture, being gay, pastoring etc. God is NOT blessing that mess and her "wife" or whatever, is not a Bishop either. Neither one meet the clear qualifications of scripture on what a leader in the church is to be. How can a woman be the Hubsand of one wife? She can't! It is gender specific! I could go on but I'm done...I pray she repents and is truly saved.
If it doesn't fit you must admit........It wasn't meant to be that way. Abomination unto God and mankind and in hell she will lift her eyes and her lover too.
@ Hard Truth: You are so right above. A minister I know uses that don't judge comment all of the time when he is caught in acts that are sins. I wonder what version of the Bible she is reading, that she feels that her lifestyle is acceptable to Christ. Good Word from you.
Rather than just give my opinion, I'll answer it with scripture seeing how that's what she was supposed to be following. 1 Timothy, 2: 12-13. "But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve." Next we have Mark 7, 20-23. " What comes out of you is what defiles you. For from within, out of your hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile you." Finally for those that blasphemy against the Bible to justify their sins using Matthew 7 "Judge not". This does not mean not to judge. This means not to judge when you are doing what you are judging. Scripture supports this in John 7: 24, "Judge not according to appearance but judge righteous judgement." BTW, this was said by Jesus himself. In case anyone has any questions on what righteous judgement is, it's following the laws...aka, the commandments. Luke 17:3 states, "If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him. Rebuke means, To criticize or reprove sharply; reprimand. So lets stop with the nonsense of not judging. It's a liberals way of justifying their sins or others sins. I welcome anyone to challenge any of this. This is straight from the scriptures and New Testament at that. If you're not a follower of the Bible, then this is not for you. For those that are, take note...So in essence, she shouldn't be preaching in the first place as a woman, and leading the lifestyle she's chosen to lead is an abomination before God. Enough of this a la carte Bible teaching. You believe it all or you don't believe. There's no picking and choosing, and calling yourself a believer knowing you're sinning, that's called a hypocrite. The entire church is out of order.
