Death by Sodom

Never in the history of our nation has the head of government and a representative of the institutional church taken the stage before a national audience, and because of modern media a world audience – and not only preached the acceptance of sin, but the promotion of it.  Yesterday’s presidential inauguration was historically a first. The likes of which we will never recover from.

Just because it was done to the applause and cheer of a half a million people does not mean that it is even remotely okay.  Our nation has been deconstructed over the last 4 years like never before, but yesterday it took a hard left to annihilation.  That is what will happen to all who oppose God and take the side of the Enemy, complete annihilation. Our nation has changed, and the world along with it.

We have come to the time when people no longer want to hear sound doctrine.  It has been building for decades.  What will they hear – only what itches their ear.  They want what they want, and what they do not want is God.  If they have rejected Him, don’t be surprised if they reject you.  It is not your job to save everybody.  Stay away from arguments, they bring only strife.  You cannot help those who don’t want to be helped.

In the end when it comes down to accountability before God, it is the choices of the individual that matter. Which has everything to do with how you see God, and nothing to do with your gender ethnicity preferences or the sins you are good at.  God did not create man and the earth for men to go around sodomizing each other on it.  That is not a question nor is it open for discussion.  It is a commandment being violated every time it is done. Judgment is being stacked up.

Let me take just a moment to straighten out some misunderstanding. There is no question of whether sodomy is a sin in both testaments of the Bible, the only question is whether you believe the Bible. Gay is not simply a person who has sex with another person of the same gender, that’s homosexual. Homosexual is the clinical definition of the act itself and does not incorporate the belief system of either party. Sodomy is the legal term which came from the Biblical term referring to the dominant sin in the city of Sodom, before God destroyed it.

Gay is where it gets into the head and eventually the heart, and is a very modern 20th century term invented by the Enemy to disguise an agenda. For that’s what gay is, a group of homosexuals with an agenda to stop everyone else from calling homosexuality a sin. Sodom was destroyed some four millennia ago. For thousands of years men have practiced homosexuality and sodomy and they knew it was a sin, there has never been anything gay about it.

Gay is much more the political party or even the religion of militant homosexuals. Well millions of homosexuals are not militant at all or even slightly political about their sexual preference, whether their sin is full or part time. I mean they are not Gay at all, many are married with children. Some of which would fight you to the death if you were to say otherwise. Gay like most religions is chiefly concerned with the beliefs of those who follow, not their actions. You can commit the sin and have nothing to do with the politics.

I used to be very good at sodomy in the community for many years, even when I knew it was wrong. Knowledge of sin alone is not enough to stop you from doing it, regularly. By the grace of God I repented, and so can you. We need help just to want to be made right, and He has given it. But the only help we will get is the help God has given to do what He tells us, not help to do what we want. God loves sinners who repent, He does not have anything for those who do not. Whatever the sin.

A terrible Harvest is coming.  If you don’t know that you just don’t see God right, and you need to fix that.  Because this life is a vapor a wisp of air.  A few breaths and we’re gone.  It is the next life that is the real life, and it lasts forever.  Eternal life or eternal death are yours for the choosing, and the choice must be made here on this side of the veil that separates the natural from the supernatural, the physical from the spiritual. The Bible speaks of this veil being removed when the Lord returns.

Sin is a Biblical term, it is not open to anyone’s private interpretation. It has already been defined by God.  You think you are the only one who found their favorite activities not on God’s approved list.  Get in line, join the club.  My fallen nature feels the same.  Every single member of the five children in my family were molested by different people at different places in various times of our childhood.  Some multiple.  My closest gay friends were all molested as children. All of them.

The breakup of our parents when I was 10 let the wolves in.  It has happened to millions of families in this country alone.  The rabbit like procreation of homosexuals is not birthed from the liberation of an imprisoned libido, don’t be ridiculous.  It is a direct consequence of the abortion of the family, which is spiritual.  It is an attack from the pit of Hell.  I didn’t ask to be violated as a child, no one does.  And the Lord knows all about it.  We will not be Judged unfairly, but we will be Judged.  It is more certain than Death.

There is no sin that is okay with God not one not any – including Homosexuality. Get over it!  The gay thing is nothing more than part of the sin thing which is the thing responsible for this whole thing – gone wrong.  God does not have a problem with sin, we do.  He has the only answer.  That’s why He sent His son, to pay for our sin, so we wouldn’t have to.  If you don’t let Him pay then you have to pay. You either love your sin more than God, or you love God more than your sin.

It doesn’t matter what sin you struggle with – God commands all of us to Die to sin by crucifying the Fallen Nature it comes out of.  It is a struggle for everyone.  Christ died for all sinners – God hates all sin. Your sin my sin gay sin – all sin.  Love the sinner Hate the sin.  If you me or anyone refuses to accept the payment made by Christ for our own sin, we will die in our own sin and go to Hell.  Sin is not an option, Hell is.  Opt out while you still can.

The Interruption

The Day is coming and it’s coming quickly.  If you want to grow in the Lord, if you freely admit the need to come up higher and become more Christlike – then you must be brutally Honest with yourself right now, in what I’m about to ask. As a Prophet, I don’t have everything for you, no Minister does. I only have some things, but what I have for you is Essential. You need Everything the Lord has for you through any true Minister you’re connected to, in any way. Everything. From the Apostle and Prophet just as you do from the Evangelist, the Pastor and the Teacher. You need all of what each Office of ministry has for you, we all do. You don’t get to choose them like flavors, they work together like a Body. You’re either connected to them, or you’re not. And it’s no accident that you get the Word from those who are connected to you.

So here’s the question. Are you ready for Jesus to come right now – this second. I mean are you really ready.  Are you. He’s coming just like that. If there is any hesitation or a slight panic you sense deep within yourself as you consider it – that’s in the Bible!  It’s what the Bible calls drawing back. You may even be getting ready for Him, but He’s not coming for those who are Getting Ready.  That hesitation is the very thing that would cause you to Draw Back. Which does not please the Lord, and would be bad for you. If the reality of the question shocks any, or you’re still in shock – you’re not even Getting ready for Him to come back. If that’s the case you need to repent. Right now. Because listen to me friend, the 2 main events in All of Scripture – are His 1st Coming and His 2nd Coming. One happened 2000 years ago, the other is right at the door. I mean moments away, and no I’m not exaggerating. I’m simply speaking the language of the Bible.

The return of Jesus Christ to the earth will not be as Savior, it will be as King. If He is not your King right now, then you are not one of those He’s coming back for. He came as Savior already, and you don’t get to make Him your King when He gets here. We’ve had plenty of time. Plenty. If more time would have helped the Lord would have given it. Length of time given is not the problem – the depth of our Rebellion is. In our Fallen Nature we are against God. We need help, much help – and he has sent it. Twenty centuries ago. Now He’s coming back to see who took the help – and to see who was just talking.

The only help He gave was the help to Change and become like Him. Most have refused this help. I’m not talking about being Saved now, I’m talking about making it out on the first boat. Most believers will be going through the Tribulation, but if you obeyed His Word – you won’t.  The Rapture isn’t for believers, it’s for the Overcomers, those who obeyed God.  The demons believe.  Those who still Believe by the end of the Tribulation will join us at His 2nd Coming. Don’t believe me, search the Scriptures and check it out yourself.  Many many so called Christians will be shocked, literally. They thought they could work God the way they worked everything else in their life. Not a chance, God is not mocked remember. It’s not about being perfect, it’s about taking God seriously. Don’t be one of those who didn’t.

His Return will be an Interruption for everyone who lives on the earth, and the Bible says so. But for all who are not Ready – it will be catastrophic. It will surprise hundreds of millions of people who called themselves Christians. Not because they didn’t have a chance to get it right, but because they wouldn’t get it right.  They never really meant it. They didn’t Believe in Him or His Word – like that. One translation says that they would be religious, but reject the power that could make them godly. Another says they will appear to have a godly life, but they will not let it’s power change them. Just about 2 years ago the Lord put it on my heart to confront every member of our Ecclesia [during a sermon] with that question. Surprisingly, if the Lord had returned then, none of us were ready within ourselves.  We could tell.  You can tell.  I am very glad to say that now, we are . . .

Upon This Rock

There is a horrible and devastating misuse of a single Scripture that has been infamous for centuries.  It’s not hidden, it has been carved in stone lifted up on high and declared openly in plain sight.  It can be seen scrolled on the inner ring of the base of the great dome of St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.  Hundreds of millions of people have been deceived by it, for centuries.

It is a hijacking of the words of Jesus telling His disciples that His being the Messiah is the Rock of Revelation that He will build His Church on.  In the Scripture, Jesus didn’t ask who Peter was. He asked who do you say that I am. The twisting of this verse is the basis of all authority the Catholic church claims for itself.  The Catholic church like so many cults of Christianity misappropriated Scripture for its own purposes.

They have kidnapped these words from Jesus and changed them to say that Peter is the Rock that Jesus will build His church on – and it’s all a Lie.  Every bit of it.  As Peter was one of the Apostles, by perverting the Scripture and substituting Jesus with Peter they claim “apostolic succession” from Peter.  It is a term for an idea they made up. Making disciples is what Jesus commanded, they replaced it with apostolic succession.  Anything that opposes Christ or what he said is antichrist. The word Antichrist also means instead of Christ. If they admitted the error, the Catholic church would collapse.

No such succession exists anywhere in Scripture, not a little, not even a word – it’s all made up.  They practice and preach what they said themselves instead of what Christ said. This succeeding an apostle is one of several titles the pope claims, and it is the main title he proclaims – to be Peter’s successor.  Don’t be fooled by the gold and the glitter and everything shiny; the lovely buildings with stained glass, the marble columns the high altar. Don’t.  It’s all man made, and it’s all going to burn. Don’t be surprised when it does.

Peter was an apostle, but there were 11 others.  Paul was one after the 12. All of the apostles had disciples – just like Jesus did.  We know the names of many of their disciples, they were recorded in early Christian writings.  Some are named in the Bible.  Discipleship was the way ordained by God to expand and birth Ministry – it’s in the Scripture.  There is not some other way. Making disciples is the Great Commission that Jesus commanded. Not all are called to ministry, but everyone has to Grow Up in Christ.  Discipleship makes you grow up and become what you’re supposed to be in Him.  I’m an apostle with 12 disciples, but I’m not The Apostle – Jesus is. There are many others. Many apostles were prophets and teachers before becoming apostles, both in the Bible and today. You cannot Call yourself, the Bible says that very clearly.

If you are Called to ministry or any kind of leadership in the Body of Christ, it’s not for prestige but for service.  Service to the Master yes, but it is still service.  Leadership is not for privilege, it’s for responsibility. How refreshing the Truth sounds. Everything else is a bunch of self promoting, self aggrandizing glory robbing megalomania. In other words, the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher are there as Gifts from God to deal with Believers, or those who become Believers. By training them with the Word of God to do all the services [themselves] that build up the Body of Christ until everybody reaches the same level of Faith and Maturity. Which is a standard set by Christ, not you feeling that you’ve had enough. All of it is in the Bible, go look it up.

You can start by reading Ephesians 4: 11-24, and read it in several good translations, until you get it. I suggest the Amplified, NIV, Complete Jewish, God’s Word, and the Wuest translation, to name a few. If you put it in military terms [as the Bible often does] you have to go to bootcamp to be of any use as a soldier because you have to be trained. And no, going to church is not bootcamp – Discipleship is bootcamp. The church is filled with people who claim to have been in His Army for 20, 30, 40 years – and they don’t even know how to march! They have no weapons, some have only parts of a uniform, most have no uniform at all – and they don’t even know how to fight the Enemy. So most just shoot at or sabotage each other.

Reading the Bible yourself strengthens your Belief and builds up your Hope, but you have to hear the Anointed Preaching or Teaching of the Word to get the Faith you need. Many have thought for years that Faith came from reading the Bible – but the Bible doesn’t say that. If you read Romans 10 where this is talked about it covers Belief, Faith, Preachers and preaching – and what they’re preaching . . . the Word of Christ. And remember Christ isn’t Jesus’ last name, it’s the Greek word for the Hebrew word Messiah [Meshiac]. Both of which mean the Anointed One and/or His Anointing. It’s referring to those who are Authorized by God [not themselves] to preach and teach His Word. Which Authority is proven by the fact that they have the Anointing. Which not only makes you want to listen, it changes you while you do. But it only changes you a little bit at a time because that’s all we can handle. Teaspoon by teaspoon, brick by brick.

When you tie that in with Ephesians 4, you get a clear picture of what the 5 fold ministry is Called [Authorized] to do. But it’s your choice whether you submit to that Authority, or not. God will not make you. He’ll just look at the choice you made when He gets here. Discipleship is a getting up under someone with real Authority [from God], not just someone who says they have it. You can tell if they have real Authority because if they do – they will also have the Anointing. Which is power. Power to change your life, power to change the lives of others. This power comes from God’s Word, the Holy Spirit and the 5 Fold Ministry working together. All of which have been Ordained by Him in His Word. Your job is not to do the changing. Your job is just to stay plugged in, and let the power change you.

If you’ll look at the relationship between Moses and Joshua, Elijah and Elisha, Paul and Timothy [as well as Titus and Luke], Peter and Mark, John and Polycarp – the Scripture is filled with examples of Discipleship. It is the Biblical model, there is not something else. It’s like a Jedi padawan getting up under a Jedi Master. You don’t want to get up under just anybody, only someone who has the power of God’s Word and His Spirit working in the office of Ministry they stand in. With regular multiple signs miracles and wonders occurring as the Holy Spirit wills. These are called confirming signs in multiple Scriptures. Demonstrating both the Call by God to Ministry and His Approval of what is being ministered. Which is the only acceptable proof as set forth in the Bible, that God is behind you and what you are doing. People don’t like that because it eliminates the validity of most of the institutionalized religious church.

Any church or ministry that does not have the signs miracles and wonders demonstrating the active presence and power of God is pretending. I didn’t say that, the Bible does. If you don’t have the Anointing, get under someone who does so you can get it. Most of the ordained ministers in modern religious christianity only have a piece of paper. Ordination is not on paper, it never has been. Ordination is in power. The power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus did not go to seminary, nor did any of His disciples. In fact, they were completely rejected by the religious establishment of the day and their self appointed authority, who were devoid of any power. Just like today. These self ordained religious priests were the ones who actually killed Jesus. And the Bible says they did it out of Jealousy. They wanted what He had, but they didn’t want to do what He did to get it.

Religion is what man gives instead of coming up into the Relationship that only God has. For all who will let Him be God. In this life that relationship is called Salvation. It is a process not an event. You must decide for yourself if you want the dead dry religion of the world and it’s way of doing things, or true Faith in God. Which is the only way He does everything. Making disciples is the Great Commission. This whole thing is not about what you think you know, it’s about doing what you’re told. Which of course nobody wants to do. We need help.

All of us must learn to do what the Bible says instead of doing what we want. To live for Christ instead of living for Self. It does not sound very attractive to the Selfish nature of our Flesh, which is dying as we speak. Like all biological life, it’s time is very limited. All of the Time being given has been for one purpose: To give you a chance to join the Lord’s side, so that He can give you everything that He has. Here’s some of the best advice I could ever give you – always stay on the Lord’s side. The Bible speaks of a time before Adam and Eve, and there will be a time after this one. But the only ones who will be with Him there, are those that are with Him here. Who are you with . . .
