Overcoming Homosexuality

Attention: This article is written in mind for those who identify themselves as Christians but who have not allowed themselves to be cleansed from homosexuality. The purpose of this look into homosexuality is not to condemn the person who struggles with this enslaving sin but to expose the rebellious spirit of homosexuality, and save the sinner. And if you are a Christian, then you MUST be struggling with the spirit of homosexuality, otherwise, you might want to check your calling and election with God, making sure, that you have indeed been Born-Again. Because it is impossible to have an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, yet feel no remorse or struggle with the rebellious homosexuality spirit.

To those under this abomination, I want you to know that while I love you and God loves you more, you must know that God is not pleased, whatsoever, with the child that thinks they can serve Him, yet partake in this abominable lifestyle. Let's look at why.

Homosexuality here refers to the sexual desire, attraction and romantic interest of the same sex and gender in which you were born. Now what I need you to understand is, no matter how young you felt you were "gay", or even if you think you were born this way, ...God does not approve it, and He does NOT expect you to continue in a rebellious lifestyle against Him. Homosexuality is a sin. And while it is not a bigger sin than any other sin, it is abominable, according to the Bible, because it becomes a rebellious lifestyle against God. The spirit of homosexuality doesn't just stop at a thought or act. It permeates the entire life of the person. In short, homosexuality becomes a life-led practice. It is an aggressive, rebellious spirit against God's naturally intended use for man and woman, Genesis 2:24. Don't you be fooled. Just because governors, and television shows are "coming out", and the world is accepting homosexuality as normalcy more and more... the one opinion that matters is God and God has not changed His mind on the matter!

The homosexuality spirit is a flamboyant spirit. It likes to tempt, be seen, push, and entice. It's bold, aggressive and boisterous. Overcoming homosexuality is no easy task because it effects all aspects of the person's life, but God detests it, which means then that He has a cure. God is not silent on the issue of homosexuality. As straightforward as the Bible is about adultery and fornication, is also the same with homosexuality. If it wasn't in God's word, then it could be questioned. But because it is, we are held accountable, because the mouth of the Lord has spoken it. And you must know that satan is behind every twist, misconception and different suggestion of what God has already said, Genesis 3, Matthew 4.

God didn't need to do a big teaching plan on homosexuality. It's simple. It's an abomination and those who engage in it will not inherit eternal life. Not because God won't forgive homosexuals for the sin,---He does. What God doesn't forgive is any lifestyle (practice of sin) that continually rebels against Him, after He has offered us Jesus, His Son for salvation and deliverance from every sin. For 1 John 1:6-7 says: 6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

This is speaking of the practice of sin. For we all slip up and sin here and there, but when we do, we can ask for forgiveness and we are instantly forgiven (1John 1:9). But when we continue in a sinful lifestyle, it means that we are not repenting of that sin, and that's why we are able to practice it on a regular basis. And to continue to practice sin on a regular basis is to start walking again in darkness. A person who practices a sin on a regular basis will not ask for forgiveness of that sin and therefore they remain not only in an unforgiven state, but in a rebellious one against God, because they are exalting their will over God's.

Listed as one of the acts of forbidden immoralities along with the rest of sexual immoralities, in Leviticus 18:22, God warns : "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination".

Listed amongst the penalties for the acts of immoralities, in Leviticus 20:13, God promises: "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them".

The Bible records some events expressing God's wrath against the rebellious and large amounts of people who enjoyed wickedness and sin. Such as the Flood, but more particularly the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. And many rebels against God have tried to discredit the Bible's account as to why Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed, but it's in plain English: So let's see what happened... Please stop and read Genesis 19: 1-24 before continuing and as you read this, ask yourselves these questions: Why were the MEN, young and old surrounding Lot's house after the two angels (clothed as men)?--verse 4 Why would all these MEN of the cities be so concerned with 2 new visiting men? ---verse 4 Why did these MEN of Sodom and Gomorrah want to "KNOW" these 2 men that were visiting Lot's house?---verse 5 Keep in mind that the word "KNOW" refers to "KNEW" which means to have SEXUAL RELATIONS with the person (see Genesis 4:1,17). Why did Lot offer the men of Sodom and Gomorrah his own two daughters who have not "KNOWN" any man?---verse 8 Now why did God destroy the Sodom and Gomorrah? ---verse 24-25

Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed not because of one or two homosexuals, but because most of the men of those cities were men who like to have sex with other men, practicing sexual wickedness.

Those of you who are struggling with homosexuality....you must make up your mind today. You are going to serve God, and let Him cleanse you of that wicked spirit. Or you are going to choose to continue to serve it and rebel against God. Whatever you decide, do know that God is NOT mocked. You will not get away with coming into His house, identifying yourself as a Christian, yet fully enjoying a lifestyle of sexual sin and wickedness that He hates (Colossians 3:5-6). God will not be mocked (Romans 1:24-28, Jude 1: 7, 18).

To Pastors and Church Leaders, I believe I have the backing of the Holy Spirit to say that it is not right to put homosexuals out of the church. First of all, the Church belongs to the Lord, no matter if your money or the congregation's building fund paid for it. And all churches that proclaim Jesus Christ, is under His leadership and authority. However, it is not pleasing in God's eyesight to knowingly allow homosexuals who show no remorse, or conviction to be in leadership and ministries in the Church. You must let them know that you love them, but in no way is God silent or soft on the lifestyle of homosexuality. God does not accept service done in His name, from persons who practice sin, which means living in a constant state of a sinful lifestyle. God is concerned with the heart and repentance and obedience (1 Samuel 15:22, Isaiah 1:10-16).

To those struggling with Homosexuality. Homosexuality is a very aggressive, boisterous, attention seeking spirit. It desires to be seen, it tempts sexually, and is full of sexually immoral lust. It is extremely rebellious. It is impossible to " have it" and not act on it. It will act out, it must act out. That's why homosexual men and women dress like the opposite sex, and act like the opposite sex. That spirit wants to be seen. Homosexuality is a sin like all other sins, but what makes it impossible for God's presence to dwell around and therefore makes it an absolute abomination is because it spreads into an entire lifestyle. And when any sin in our lives is tolerated it becomes a practice, therefore it means that the heart has become resisting to the conviction of the Holy Spirit--therefore it is impossible to both practice a sin and be repenting of it at the same time. And we know that God does NOT tolerate nor fellowship with those who have unrepentant sin. In fact, a man cannot truly be born-again without repenting of his sin, and rebellious life against God. It's impossible! It's hard, and it's going to take tears, and a pouring out of your heart, a whole change of will and lifestyle, but if you are willing, it is possible with God and through the Blood of Jesus.

Your prayer should be: God, I want the mind of Christ. I repent of every thing that is rebellious against you. Make me over Lord. I accept the cleansing Blood of Jesus Christ and the power over ALL sin that Jesus Christ made possible to all those who confess His name, on the Cross at Mt. Calvary. God, give me a healthy sexual and romantic desire for the opposite sex and gender. Let me from this day forth walk as the godly man or woman that that you created me for. God, give me that same disgust for homosexuality as you have. I believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am accepting the washing of His blood Today. I no longer desire to live as outsider of your Will. I no longer desire to bring condemnation to myself by thinking I can come into the House of the Lord ,serve in ministries, and fool myself and others that you are pleased with me. Oh God, I need the perfect sacrifice that your Son provided for me. No more struggling. I believe your Word. I believe that I am healed of the wickedness of homosexuality. God, I will go forth in the name of Jesus Christ, claiming the victory. And I will share how you cleansed me, when your Spirit leads me to, that your name gets the glory and others may know that there is NOTHING too hard for God cleanse. No place that God won't go, to pull out a crying, godly sorrowful sheep. No life lead so dark, that God won't make over. No filth so dirty that God won't touch. Today, I began my life as a witness of the cleansing, saving power of Jesus Christ blood. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ. I believe, I pray, I receive. Amen.
