The Word is Our Instruction Book
Another Look at Sexual Sins
I have written thirteen books on the subject of overcoming and understanding homosexuality. All are addressed to those who no longer want to be homosexual. You know subject not negotiable, not comfortable, regardless what you think, a powerful no I do not want the attraction, its important to me – I guess you get my drift! Written to many who do not want the attraction and for various reasons. I write to those over the legal age of eighteen, and to those who want to find peace with their sexual attraction accepting it but not acting on the sexual desires. To those who believe to be a practicing homosexual is a transgression of various laws. To those who fear hells flames if they were to outlive their attractions. To those who want to honour and obey The Father and The Son Jesus Christ and be led by The Holy Spirit in doing so. To those who want studies so they can compare, prove either yes or no you can be a committed or married homosexual. The subject of overcoming and understanding is nothing new under the sun. Centuries prove many from all different cultures, societies, ethnic classes, religious beliefs did not want their homosexual attractions. Therefore, the persuit of understanding and overcoming unwanted same-sex attraction cannot be isolated to the peoples with a Bible or church upbringing or knowledge. We cannot lay the blame just on the church, on Christianity or God or Jesus. Neither can we lay this blame on Christian religion as people have rejected and been suicidal religious or not religious, educated or not educated, accepted or not accepted regardless of their social status or class. People have rejected sexuality in as much as they have rejected their children, ethnicity, race and their own gender! The mystery of same-sex attraction, intersex, transsexuality and all deviation from “the norm” is just that a mystery. In as much as some mental health issues, delusion or even a psychopathic personality is a mystery as this deviate from “the norm” of what is socially and morally acceptable. So I am not caving in or stopping my findings, my healings, my calling just because LGBTQ are trying to make it illegal to pray away the gay! I will continue to write to those people who search to uncover and find answers and counsel. To those who want peace and want to live according to their religious beliefs on the attraction. 5
If you are LGBTQ living your life, whatever! But likewise, we can live our lives whatever! We like you are to have the freedom, only our freedom is to resist the sexuality no matter its causations. Just as much as the person who is delusional, murderous or a compulsive liar or a kleptomaniac wants and can have freedom so can we in our biblical framework seek, pray and serve a God we believe in with our personal understanding of the Bible. My teachings are there for those who want to read them. I do have an audience of those who believe in God who is God The Father from The Bible. Who is Lord and King and Creator God over all lesser gods and goddesses. Who along with His Son, The Lord Jesus Christ will judge all gods, goddesses, fallen angels, creatures, and humanity according to what He has spoken to us via His Bible/Words that we believe that is a book of Truth and a book that says â&#x20AC;&#x153;no practicing homosexualityâ&#x20AC;?. Sadly I find no Biblical legality to be married or a practicing lesbian. The proclivity does not seem to be an issue with Jesus, but the action and marriage do seem to be according to my studies. My findings and counsel differ from book to book. This way I do not repeat myself to often, always getting new revelation, knowledge, and understanding on the issue. If you read this booklet and are a gay or lesbian Christian I am not putting your arm up your back. To those of you who want to overcome the action I pray and hope what I write will bring rest and peace and know Jesus understands the attraction and loves you regardless what you identify as. I pray that you will see your freedom in Christ to be human, sinful by nature and forgiven. I pray you will allow Jesus to take you into all truth on the subject. So that you know that you know the choices you make line up with Biblical Truth and that would afford you eternity in His Kingdom.
Be blessed and be a blessing.
Chapter 1 Answers in the Book of Revelation
Having same-sex attraction and having the desire to be intimate and live in a relationship in or out of marriage when it is a real aspect of one’s personhood does provoke derision and mockery towards Jesus. Why can He not allow those to enter at death into the New Heavenly Jerusalem? After all most have felt this way since we were young, and the proclivity is so real!
Anyway, does it seem ridiculous to not let murderers, liars or idolaters and or idol worshipers in the gates? We know everyone is guilty of idolatry and lying in some form or another. Even murder, we have all hated in our hearts. But, after all, He makes the rules, and He defines what takes the form of sexual immorality, what takes the form of murder, lying and what takes the form of idolatry.
Of course, we know it is not as black and white and cut and dry as Jesus judges the hearts of any person with same-sex attraction or who is a murderer, a liar or idolater when they die or live.
I believe the Bible, I believe Jesus’s claims that He is the One God above all gods and goddesses. I believe Satan and or Lucifer was cast out of the heavens and one third of the angels and living creatures went with him on their own volition. I believe these spiritual beings are at war to ascend above their creator. Their hatred for The Godhead includes all Christians to bring forth deceit, devastation and destruction, you only have to rethink the war against the Jews and Rome in the days of Jesus.
Being God above the gods, He said we are to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your strength and with all your mind” (Luke 10:27). “If you love me you will keep my commandments.” (John 14:15) He did not leave us powerless to do as such as He has given Grace of His Holy Spirit to keep His laws and have a heart after Him to love Him.
As citizens, as children baptized into Christ, as sons and daughters, as disciples, as covenant brides, we have been given a teaching Book that speaks to us on how to love the Lord with all your heard, strength and mind and how to keep His many commandmens.
Did Jesus speak on homosexuality? He probably did privately talk about homosexual activity, homosexual marriage and homosexual fornication in the time He was on earth. We know He cautioned against sensuality, fornication, idolatry, lustful intent of the eyes, evil thoughts, and deceit, and these are strongholds in homosexual lust.
I believe, Jesus speaks indirectly on unlawful sexual intercourse, unlawful sexual living. I believe inclusive is homosexual love and is in the Book Revelation. This New Testament book is spoken by Jesus Christ to an angel then the angel speaks to Peter. In this book, Jesus Christ declares the persons who will be in that city and the persons who will be outside its walls.
“But outside are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the fornicators and the murderers, and the idolaters and everyone loving and making a lie.” Revelation 22:15
I, Jesus sent My angel to testify these things to you over the churches. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the bright and morning Star.” Revelation 22:16
Jesus is the author of Revelation, and He did speak about sexual sins, He is the First and the Last who was dead and now is the I Am who is alive forever and ever. When He ascended into Heaven sorcery was still sorcery, fornication was still fornication murder was still murder, idolatry was still idolatry, lying was still lying, theft was still theft, incest was still incest, and I believe homosexuality was still homosexuality.
“And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet, as dead. And He put His right hand on me, saying to me, Do not fear. I am the First and the Last, 18. And the Living One; and I became dead; and, behold, I am living forever and ever. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades, and of death. 19. Write the things you saw, and what 8
things are, and what things are about to occur after these things.” Revelation 1:17-19
Jesus does not even want anyone to add words or rewrite Revelation thinking they know better, yes, not to change its content one bit. If one does He has issued a plague and whoever takes away words He has issued a striking out of the Lamb’s Book of Life (Revelation 22:17-19).
That’s harsh just for altering the words of a book you get cast into hell. So, don’t be deceived, besides being kind compassionate and merciful, He is fierce out of His Holy Places and He has a lake that burns with fire and sulfur, here we read (Revelation 21:8) for whoever writes their version of Revelation.
Just because there were no red letter words by Jesus, He did speak on homosexuality in other Books of the New Testament for they are written by The Spirit of Christ Jesus. He moved men’s minds to write them; it is the spirits of darkness that have perverted the Gospels and the Epistles by bringing in the various translations.
The Spirit of Christ Jesus is part of the Godhead and is a Spirit of Truth; He has authority to cause a man to write as if He is Jesus. Jesus left us His Spirit and said Holy Ghost would bear witness and teach us and tell us all things that He did, that He spoke on and taught. The Holy Spirit would also tell us what was not recorded in the Gospels if He deemed so (John 20:3031, 21:25).
He is the Law He is The Word (Bible) made flesh, and He gave the laws, so homosexual sex is included. So even if He did not mention the homosexual word, He did in other books. Most definitely He spoke straight forth in the Epistles and the other books of the New Testament. He did say homosexual sex was not to be practiced as one who was His King and Priest in Covenant with Him. One was not to partake in, practice, or allow the proclivity to rule as a lust of the flesh to obey its demands.
Therefore, it is safe to say that in the Gospels and the epistles the sin of homosexual lust and homosexual fornication and homosexual idolatry is condemned by Jesus. We are warned, corrected and cautioned not to 9
transgress into these actions. See the list of scriptures on verses on sexual sin at https://www.thoughtco.com/bible-verses-about-sexual-immorality699956
Consider this, in the next chapter the list of laws defining immoral behavior hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been fulfilled because of Calvary. Just because Jesus did not speak on them in red letter does not make them permissible. Same as homosexuality.
It would appear to me Jesus had no intention of changing His laws about being an active homosexual; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure He would have mentioned it if He did. He certainly freed women up from under the bondage of heresy and error as evidence is behind every mention to and about women in the New Testament. There is no mention of same-sex love as in homosexuality other than the eunuch, but these are those born literally inter sex.
Chapter 2 Biblical Immoral Behaviour
God approved behavior is written as God’s laws governing sex and is just that, His. These are Covenant stipulations for how a King and a Priest can act in His Kingdom and His presence. His Priestly handbook both Old and New Testaments show us what is prohibited or approved. Shows us what pleases Him, and how to take hold of His Covenant. Giving knowledge of how He writes the laws on our hearts so as to obey them.
Whether we like it or not, He says immorally defiles us (Matthew 15:1819; Mark 7:21-22) especially if we act out, including homosexual desires. It does not seem fair especially when every nth degree is screaming I’m only attracted to the same sex, I’m homosexual.
Jesus makes mention of immoral behavior in the narrative on divorce because of adultery (Matthew 5:32, 19:9). In the adulteress, He told her to sin no more (John 7:53) this reveals her behavior was not acceptable. He said even looking at a woman lustfully (Matthew 5:28) is immoral.
Of course, we would get a list of sexual conduct from a Holy God who is a Father over His children. I’m sure you did or will give your daughters and sons a sexual conduct lecture and tell them what immoral behavior is? Even the laws of our Government do this, so why is it hard to receive from the King of the Universe.
Why would the sexual conduct on the following list bring us to the place that it is now unlawful in parts of America for any person to sell books, counsel and pray? Or anything else to those who want to overcome and understand their same-sex attraction. Or to address transsexual and homosexual sexual issues in relation to sexual purity from the book The Bible? These Kingdom’s of fallen angels must be wanting to hide something. Indeed, the truth of the God who will eventually end this angelic battle.
I understand and know firsthand there still are and have been many a ministry who have done much damage with regard to sexual orientation change and casting out demons. In as much as there has been done much damage done by psychiatry, psychologists and mental health professionals in this arena.
However, taking freedoms to be and do and change and forgive people for their good intentions violates greater. Especially the freedom of religion to believe in a God and serve that God according to one's understanding of what their God’s requirements are and for the promise of eternal life.
Please realize the list below is Covenant laws for sexual conduct, He makes the Rules. We cannot say that Jesus has fulfilled all these laws because He never spoke in red letter about them or we have not seen these as a subject in the Gospels. It cannot be said that they are all now acceptable permissible and validated.
So, the argument of Jesus did not specifically speak about homosexuality does not make it ok to do so. Neither is it a valid statement or an argument to use; it is biblical studied negligence and ignorance. It is another gospel, a Gospel without power to rise up above the sinful carnal flesh.
I’d say in His wisdom there are many reasons for not recording the topic or the laws against the behavior. Anyway, how would one obey, or show their love or desire to serve or prove any topic by pursuing the study? Or how would one learn to surrender what is dear to them or learn or live sacrificially if the command was clearly written in the Gospels “thou can now engage in homosexual love, and any deviate perverse sexual act, all forms of sex are permissible.”
If we cannot win the battle with ourselves first, then how do we intertwine in the spiritual man/woman who lives above the natural man or woman. How do we then live to worship Him in spirit and truth above the base nature? How do we intertwine in the power of The Spirit of Christ Jesus to live above the written lusts of the flesh, the ways of the world and the ways of the kingdom of darkness to be empowered to follow these following laws of God.
Leviticus 18:6-23 Verse 6
- no sex with a close relative
- no sex with your mother
- no sex with your father’s wife
- no sex with your sister
Verse 10 - no sex with son or daughter’s daughter
Verse 11 - no sex with daughter of your father’s wife Verse 12 - no sex with your father’s sister Verse 13 - no sex with your mother’s sister Verse 14 - no sex with your fathers or bothers wife Verse 15 - no sex with your daughter in law Verse 16 - no sex with your brother’s wife Verse 17 - no sex with both a woman and her daughter Verse 18 - no sex with your wife's sister while she is alive Verse 19 - no sex with her while she is on a period Verse 20 - no sex with your neighbor’s wife
Verse 21 - no sex with a priestess of the temple or giving the kid to Moloch in ritual
Verse 22 - no sex with the same sex Verse 23 - no sex with an animal
None of these laws in the above list have been fulfilled, especially samesex sex. Why? Because the New Testament still has various prohibitive laws concerning sex with same-sex.
The Eunuch is not the homosexual. Homosexuals are referred to in different versions as abusers of themselves with mankind, effeminate, sexual perverts, unclean, sodomites and catamites.
Arsenokoitai homosexual, malakos arsenokoitai feminine homosexuals, this includes catamites and male prostitutes. (Leviticus 18:22, 20:13; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Romans 1:26-28, 32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; and 1 Timothy 1:8-10). You can read my book Is The Eunuch The Homosexual this is informative, and I reveal the differences.
Jesus spoke and did much that was not recorded (John 20:30-31, 21:25). Yes, He did not speak on the proclivity or gender identity or sexual orientation other than the eunuch. I believe for the same reason he did not speak about bestiality, incest or pedophilia. Because He had no intention of changing His laws to approve of these conducts.
To make mention here and clear this up; the young boy servant that was healed by Jesus (Luke 7:1-10) could not have been the centurionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boy lover. This centurion man loved the nation and built them a synagogue. So, it is safe to say this man was a God-fearer.
One who would have attended synagogue, known Torah and known the laws above. Safe to say he kept the law of no sex with the same-sex - no same-sex boy sex. I hardly think these Jews would be advocating for this man if he was engaging in homosexual acts and pedophilia with a samesex boy! Jews scorned on this boy love behavior.
Jews knew they were forbidden by law to have sex with same-sex partners. Torah observant Jews also knew homosexuality was idolatry, the worship of the creature than the Creator. So how would they petition for the healing of a young male if they thought he was being sexed up by what they would have seen him be as a God Fearing Roman Centurion. If I can find the reference in the bible, I will note it here. But, until then the age of twenty was their age of consent, not fourteen, The Virgin Mary would have been twenty.
Chapter 3 A Brief Look at a Blogger
Should I mention this man Pastor John Pavlovitz in my book? I will as he writes most of the time poignantly and below he has this to say defending same-sex love and marriage. Yet he fails to realize that same-sex behavior is listed with seventeen (17) other no no laws governing sex.
Furthermore, comments about stoning to death adulterers and disrespectful teens. When we all know that Jesus has fulfilled the penalty of death having died on a tree at Calvary (Romans 5:10; 1 Corinthians 15:3) to has no relevance. Yet, Jesus has not fulfilled the penalty for homosexual living.
“They’ll frequently refer to the book of Leviticus, claiming it says that “homosexuality” an abomination (a flawed talking point as we’ll discuss later)—and ignore the surrounding verses commanding that disrespectful teens and those having extramarital sex be stoned to death—along with hundreds of requirements and punishments, most of which they declare irrelevant to their present lives. It's become a highly selective use of the text.” 1. [Internet accessed 26/05/18]
Pavlovitz writes so emphatically, heartfully and so believable that people receive his seductive writing (1 Timothy 4:1). The ignorant of Bible knowledge, laws, doctrine and those ignorant of the intertwining of the Bible from Old to New running revelations receive his error and heresy. To add we are in a ratified Covenant. I believe his readers receive his posts errors and perversions of scripture, that can be classed as damnable heresies (2 Peter 2:1).
We know that Satan’s kingdom of darkness is the source of heresy and error and perversion of the gospel. They scheme to conquer by bringing in the division in the churches via doctrine and any other way they can divide - gossip slander, etc. They cannot get us to change allegiance or to renounce Jesus and join some occult group or become a witch, sorcerer or satanist, so they infiltrate us with heresy and divide us and work to turn us one against each other. 16
He further goes on to say in his blog post:
“They’ll try to say that Jesus opposes the LGBTQ community, when he never once corrects, cautions, or condemns anyone based on their gender identity or sexual orientation. In this case, we’re supposed to believe the unspoken damnation is implied when in reality these people are making Jesus say things he never said—simply because they want him to say it.” 2. [Internet accessed 26/05/18]
His words sound and read so good and believable to the ignorant. Anyway, identity and Orientation differ from actions of homosexuality. I believe he is under seducing spirits as the gods and goddesses and their kingdoms are cloaked behind the deception of origins of homosexuality and Mardi Gras and the freedom of sexual exploits (See my book The Homosexual Spirit).
Regardless, Jesus declares it is a way of darkness, and He does will for us to come to the place of renouncing the lust and in hope even the identity. He knows that homosexual lust will be a part of us that has to be guarded. He knows it will remain and it is to be brought under the Spiritual Power of walking in The Spirit of Christ Jesus. This way we do not fulfill that lust of the flesh. (Galatians 5:16)
Sexual sins like same-sex encounters in my belief are included in the mention of fornication by Jesus. Also when He spoke on sexuality in marriage, the two different sexes becoming one to be God’s original intent.
Further, a man with a woman is His only acceptable natural union and marriage (Matthew 19:4-5). Therefore this speaks against homosexual love. So it is logical to say the opposite is forbidden and He is speaking against homosexuality, regardless of Him knowing the causations or the spiritual beings attached to curses that outwork the formation of homosexuality. He would have released us I’m sure of that if He intended to do so, but it appears not so.
It is studied negligence by Pastor John Pavlovitz to say Jesus never corrects, cautions or condemns homosexual love, as Revelation is one of Jesus Books; a testimony of Jesus Christ (Revelation 1:1-2). He spoke against the gods and goddesses of this age in Revelation and listed who will be 17
outside its gates. These fallen angels are the gods and goddesses of this age. They are the lying force and root causes behind homosexual lust and if you ask me the tap root to the proclivity.
Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy, and He proclaims that nothing unclean can enter His gates to reside in His New Jerusalem eternally. Anything antiChrist or anti-Christian in character cannot enter in, and this means no practicing lesbian or gay man. This also meant no person who is the child of one of His fallen angels and humankind. She is accountable for marrying the watcher, and or a son of God.
I don’t make the laws; I don’t have authority over who can enter into the city of Righteousness but God The Father, God The Son and God The Spirit do. If I did let me tell you, I would allow Christ obedient homosexuals to enter the gates for eternity.
Pastor John Pavlovitz who is not homosexual, also writes the following
“They’ll claim that the term homosexual refers simply to people who have sex with same gender partners, yet will also admit that their own heterosexuality, refers to far more than just their sexual activity, but to their inclinations to love, where they seek affection, intimacy, relationship. They can’t have these words work both ways. They need to decide whether the less than a handful of passages in the New Testament is referring to identity, orientation—or a specific behavior by specific groups of people in a specific context (which is likely). Great unpacking of these passages here. 3. [Internet accessed 26/05/18]
In the same blog he writes:
“They’ll quote Paul in Romans Chapter 1, describing people consciously “trading their natural attractions” for same-sex desire and corresponding physical acts), failing to connect the dots, that for most members of the LGBTQ, there is no such exchanging taking place. They aren’t feeling one thing and choosing an alternative simply to choose. They aren’t acting in opposition to any primary inclination. Their same-sex orientation is their natural. (If pressed, these Christians need to admit that this passage refers to a specific sex act tied to pagan worship practices, and cannot be 18
superimposed over identity and orientation—and it’s certainly not appropriate to use it to categorize committed, loving relationships by people along the full LGBTQ continuum.) When trying to use Paul’s references in this way, they’re trying to separate LGBTQ people from the capacity to love and be in mutually beneficial relationships—and that’s simply wrong.” 4. [Internet accessed 26/05/18]
“At the end of the day, the Bible is not clear on these matters. It is cloudy and even contradictory at times. There is no consistent sexual ethic in the Scriptures, no one image of marriage—and no specific condemnation from Jesus or Paul of those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender simply because of their identity and orientation. If we can admit, that LGBTQ people have the same capacity for love, commitment, and monogamy in a mutually beneficial relationship that cisgender-heteronormative Christians do—the text becomes impossible to weaponize as it has been.” 5. [Internet accessed 26/05/18]
If you choose to believe Johns reasons and argument, that is entirely up to you. I don’t. From the days of Mount Sinia, the manual given dealing with regulations governing Israelite worship and the expected holiness of that community not to behave like its pagan neighbors is today still our social, moral and spiritual behavioral guideline, all written up in the book The Bible.
Mixed marriages of angel and mankind were prohibited, just like marriage of same-sex happening at Sodom. The sons of God, the watchers of mankind, “saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose” Genesis 6:2.
How would this fit into Pastor John Pavlovitz teachings? Afterall were these angels not capable of love, commitment and monogamy in a mutually beneficial relationship that cisgender-heteronormative have? Surely simply because they were sent to earth to teach, train and watch over created mankind/human beings should not have robbed them of their identity and orientation? Surely being an angel “is far more than just their sexual activity, but to their inclinations to love, where they seek affection, intimacy, and relationship.” I’m sure you understand my point!
When the earth was flooded these sexual misdemeanors were part of the causation for judgment.
â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2. That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 4. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. 5. And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.â&#x20AC;?
Genesis 6:1-8 KJ
If the bible or verses are being used as a weapon, we cannot tar everyone with the same brush. The weapons being used against Christianity by the LGBTQ are horrendous, they need not talk. I have nothing against the people of the LGBTQ community and neither should the church or vice versa of those who want to come away from that lifestyle. But we all should be up in arms against the principalities, powers and spiritual wickedness in high places in the spirit realms that hold sway and dominion over the LGBTQ community and the human soul.
If only the LGBTQ knew the reality of life on planet earth, maybe they would be changing sides. Not only are spirits as much a part of earth living as is our flesh, but what goes on in the end times as spoken of by this YouTube link would make it even more of the reality of earth living seem ridiculous. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_huKutFha8&t=1243s)
Satan and his minions have all bases loaded with their lies and heresies taught and spoken from not only other religions and Christian denominations but from those who are making it illegal to minister to Biblebelieving persons who want to follow the Bible. Follow as they understand the laws to read in prohibiting same-sex marriage and sexual engagements. Forbidding them their beleifs when we believe if we do out live our attraction it will avail us an eternity in hell.
If I do write His Truth, then the kingdoms of darkness get another batter with a strikeout. The lies of acceptance as written by Pastor John Pavloitz beliefs will send more people to hell from within its own walls. A spiritual nation of people who are supposed to rule and reign over darkness. Worship and serve the Creator, not the creature and worship in spirit and in truth. Picking up their cross and sharing in the suffering, forsaking certain aspects of the fallen nature to honor and obey their Bridegroom of Covenant. But they fight amongst their own ranks, fuelled by the deception of seducing spirits. No wonder “My people perish from lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:4)
At the end of the day, it does matter; doctrine does matter. It does matter about denying physical and spiritual lusting after people and deities and idols. It does matter how we conduct our lives to reflect God’s Kingdom ways. It does matter that we reconcile Old and New Testament laws to deliver us from evil. For Thine is The Kingdom The Power and the Glory, forever and ever, Amen.
Chapter 4 The Word is Our Instruction Book
I started writing books not only because I sensed the calling but for more understanding of homosexuality. I needed healing in my own life as my homosexuality stemmed from the fear of men. I wanted to be ‘straight’ many a time, but fear and perception of men kept me in the arms of women for sixteen years. As I wrote, I received understanding and healing from the “former things” or “the old creature.” The books give some of my personal testimony and messages from my own struggles. They had to give me a slap over the back of the head as Jesus is no soft tender you beaut God, or who turns a blind eye to our fallen nature. “but God commends His love to us in that we yet being sinners; Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 I believe they are written with His understanding of our nature, the spirits of darkness and the assignments of Satan to kill steal and destroy the followers of Jesus Christ and The Father. They are written to give His strategies for breakthrough and wanted healing of the things that brought forth sexual sin structures. The books have to lay down the law “thou shall not commit these sexual sins.” We have to take the bitter with the sweet. He can’t be all come sit on knee and I will tell you to get up and walk again just because. “I write these things to you so that you do not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” 1 John 2:1 Because by now you and I know from Scripture
“… that to whom you yield yourselves slaves for obedience, you are slaves to whom you obey, whether of sin to death, or obedience to righteousness?” Romans 6:16 By now I’m sure you know “having been set free from sin, you were enslaved to righteousness, I speak as a man on account of the weakness of your flesh. For as you yielded your members as slaves to uncleanness and to lawless act unto lawless act, so now yield your members as slaves to righteousness unto sanctification.” Romans 6:18-19 “Therefore, what fruit did your have then in the things over which you now are ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now being set free from sin, and being enslaved to God, you have your fruit unto sanctification, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is everlasting life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:21-23 Those of us who have been or are caught in the web of any sexual sin know it is not easy to escape. Our conscience bears witness to our sin, no matter how we try to hide it or make excuses for our actions. Sooner or later it has to come to an end and the sin structure brought down and put to death by His Spirit. We will not be able to give this excuse or that excuse on our day of judgment when we know or don’t know the list of laws that forbid sexual immorality. Especially when He gives Covenant power to put sin to death, to deliver us from all bondages of sexual sins (Romans 8:13) and evil spirits. Even if we avoid study or reading the Bible Jesus still tells us: “Do not love the world nor the things in the world, if anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him, because all that which is in the world: the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and its lust. But the one doing the will of God abides forever.” 1 John 2:15-17 23
Forever His Word is settled in heaven, ignorance won’t wash. If you have been told you will not be judged on what you don’t know is another lie of darkness. “Forever, O Lord; your word is settled in heaven.” Psalms 119:89 “…let everyone naming the name of Christ depart from unrighteousness… But flee youthful lusts, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace, with the ones calling on the Lord out of a pure heart.” 2 Timothy 2:19, 22 “But I say walk, walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, lest whatever you may will, these things you do.” Galatians 5:16-17 There is nothing new under the sun that Jesus does not understand or seen or heard. He knows legal doorways of spiritual darkness associated with our sexual sins cause war against our flesh, our fallen nature. “For I know that in me, that is in my flesh, dwells no good. For to desire is present to me, but to work out the good I do not find. For what good I desire, I do not. But the evil I do not desire, this I do. But if I do what I do not desire, it is no longer I working it out, but the sin dwelling in me. I find then the law, when I desire to do the right, that evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man; but I see another law in my members warring against the law of my mind, and taking me captive by the law of sin being in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then I myself with the mind truly serve the law of God, and with the flesh the law of sin.” Romans 7:18-25 He understands and has mercy the forgiveness of sins, however,
“Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.” Ephesians 5:6 “Now the works of the flesh are clearly revealed, which are adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lustfulness, idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, fighting’s, jealousies, angers, rivalries, divisions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness’s, wild parties, and things like these; of which I tell you beforehand, as I also said before, that the ones practicing such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Galatians 5:19-21 “So, then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to flesh; for if you live according to flesh, you are going to die. But if by the Spirit you put to death the practices of the body, you will live.” Romans 8:12-13 We have to let The Word discern the thoughts and intentions of our heart, teach us, train us, correct us and give us the road map to eternity. As much as it hurts us in the here and now, it is a loving hit up the back of the head. “Or did you not know that unjust ones will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be led astray, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor abusers, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor covetous ones, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor plunderers shall inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:8-10 “Therefore, brothers, I call on you through the mercies of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in order to prove by you what is the good and pleasing and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:1-2 “For the word of God is living, and powerfully working, and sharper than every two-edged sword, even piercing as far as the dividing apart of both soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge of the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 25
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16 “Or, brothers, are you ignorant – for I speak to those knowing law - that the law rules over the man for as long a time as he may live?” Romans 7:1
“… for through law is full knowledge of sin.”
The Scriptures will bring freedom: “He sent His word and healed them; and delivered them from all their pitfalls.” Psalms 107:20 “those who live in the darkness, and in the shadow of death, being prisoners in affliction and iron because they rebelled against the words of God, and despised the counsel of the Most High.” Psalms 107:10 The Scriptures will bring healing and deliverance: “And they shall build old ruins; they shall raise up former desolations; and they shall restore the waste cities, ruins of generations and generations.” Isaiah 61:4 Most of all The Scriptures will make: “…sure of your calling and election; for doing these things, you will not ever fall. For so will be richly furnished to you the entrance into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 1:10-11 You have to study to prove if you can be a practicing gay or lesbian Christian because Scriptures make it very clear:
“Do you not know that unjust ones will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be [deceived, word here mine], led astray neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor abusers, nor homosexuals … shall inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 The Scriptures are our road map and ignorance of them and no knowledge of His Truth will not bring reassurance as to say: “Blessed are the ones doing His commands, that their authority will be over the tree of life, and by the gates they may enter into the city.” Revelation 22:1 Lighten up, there is no sexual sin structure that cannot be forgiven, or cannot be weakened, brought to death, brought under the Power of The Word or under the Power of walking in The Spirit of Christ Jesus. “we have redemption through His blood the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace; which He caused to abound towards us in all wisdom and understanding…” Ephesians 1:7-8 Jesus does not hate anyone who is LGBTQ. He understands the sinful nature and understands sexual desire either sanctified or left to the control of the sinful base nature. He understands once we have entered sexual sin the stronghold comes over us. He knows we are weakened by the lust of the flesh and the spiritual network associated with any sin structures. But, as children of God, we are required by The Word made Flesh to bring our sexual appetites under the control of The Spirit of Christ Jesus. We are required to walk in the Spirit and not allow ourselves to fulfill these lusts of the flesh. Imagine the damage if pedophilia or violent rape, or sex in public was a social norm? If society requires sexual appetites to come under the control of law, God is allowed what He perceives to be His boundaries of acceptable sexual appetites that are to come under His law.
So, we are required to be sanctified in every area of sexual desires that is outside His laws, because; “…according to the Holy One who has called you, you also become holy in all conduct; because it has been written, “Be holy, because I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:15-16 Nevertheless, if we are in bondage to sexual sins, either in thought or deed, we have a Deliverer to deliver us from such sin structures. We have a merciful God who will change our hearts and change our hearts to want to know truth and even to be willing to be changed so as to forsake any sexual sins. He is the God who will demolish these sin structures fixture by fixture no matter how long it takes. We have to realize Scripture has the authority and cannot be broken (John 10:34-35). Jesus is the Word from the beginning, and all authority in heaven and earth has been given to Him (Matthew 28:8). Therefore Word of God and the Word has authority as Jesus is The Authority (John 1:14). Whether we like it or not every one of His righteous judgments will endure forever (Psalms 119:160). The Word Himself and His Word the Scriptures will judge us now, and one day as sheep or goats, wise virgins or foolish virgins, prodigal servants or sons, dogs or overcomers, faithful servants or worthless servants (Matthew 25:33; Matthew 25:10-11; Luke 15:1112; Revelation 22:15; Revelation 3:21; Matthew 25:21; Matthew 25:30). This is His cry “stop being ignorant of My will, My ways and My Truth.” “You search the Scriptures, for you think in them you have everlasting life. And they are the ones witnessing concerning Me.” John 5:39 If you take the teachings of anyone and everyone and do not study to prove your way of life lines up with the Scripture the Word will Judge you regardless. They witness His holiness, His righteous instructions on how to live as His people “a purchased possession,” and it is the Scriptures that are the standard to which we will be judged (John 12:48).
Do not be deceived, for we cannot think we can continue and nurture sexual sins and enter in through the narrow way (Matthew 7:13) no matter how much it is legalized by the nations of the earth. Excuses will not wash: “Oh, I was born this way.” “Oh, He will forgive me.” “Just one more day, I’ll stop it tomorrow.” “His grace is sufficient for me.” “He understands, and these spiritual powers are too strong.” “I’m bound and in pain and this is my only release.” “Oh, I have problems of the past that just bind me to these iniquities.” “I have to get a release, I’m highly sexed.” “Oh but she loves me, I get so much attention and love.” “She gives me what my husband can’t give me.” “I’m in love; sex is so - oh la lah.” These excuses are the broad way that leads to destruction, not only in our life now, but also in the end, eternal destruction (Mathew 7:1314). Recall Esau gave away his inheritance for the lust of his flesh. A bowl of lentil soup (Genesis 25:29-34) and sought it back in repentance and tears but was rejected (Hebrews 12:16-17). Do not be deceived here is this truth: “Eagerly pursue peace and holiness with all, without which no one will see the Lord, watching diligently that not any lack from the grace of God [and recall again - words in brackets here 29
mine]…that not any fornicator, or profane one-as Esau, who for one feeding gave up his birthright, for you know also that afterwards desiring to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place of repentance, although seeking it with tears.” Hebrews 12:14-15 This is serious stuff, come on don’t be ignorant of your life choices or flesh’s desires. Mysteries are to be uncovered, revelations sought, and knowledge attained around the whole gamut of LGBTQ in line with Bible writings. “earnestly study to show yourselves approved to God, a workman unashamed, rightfully dividing the Word of Truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 Remember, Jesus Christ our Savior, “who gave Himself on our behalf, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify a special people for Himself, zealous of good works.” Titus 2:14 He understands sexuality, sin structures and spiritual pressure from unclean spirits. He also understands He died to make provision of Covenant to “stay dead to sin” and “alive unto Him” with the grace His Holy Spirit to all who believe and receive. He has given to us His Spirit to warfare and The Spirit will bring to death sin structures; and He can keep sin structures dead as He crucifies the flesh that we no longer serve sin. “knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be annulled, so that we no longer serve sin.” Romans 6:6 “but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, which He poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ, our Savior; that being justified by His grace, we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” Titus 3:5-7
If my teachings are truth, there is no Jackie out of jail at the end if you are ignorant of His Word. There is no Jackie out of jail if you are living under the wrong rainbow. There is no Jackie out of jail if you are in alinement and follow the reasonings of the world, or the politics of this world.
Because the peoples of the earth are:
"under the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air..." Ephesians 2:2
The Prince of the power of the air is the Devil
"the ruler of this world" John 12:31
This fallen angel is
"called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world;" Revelation 12:9
His angels are with him and the world is under him as he has principalities, powers, spiritual wickedness in high places and rulers of darkness to keep mankind deceived Ephesians 6:12
If you are not are under the dominion of Christ Jesus you are under
"the domain of darkness" Colossians 1:13
"the dominion of Satan" Acts 26:18
Chapter 5 Another Look at Sexual Sin
I did not set out to write this book to give anyone a slap over the back of the head with Scriptures. Anyway, let God be God and let Him teach us His paths to an eternity of heaven than hell. To me it is either up or down, our body is just the house of our spirit that is eternal. Surely survival of our spirit to go to a nice place motivates anyone to know the truth if you can be a practicing and or married homosexual. We are flesh and bone and our nature will oppose rules and will demand it reigns on its own throne. We all have the lower base nature that wants self-gratification, love and worship. It is agreed that unregenerate flesh left to its own lordship does not want anyone to tell it what to do neither does it want to have reins placed on it. Nor does the unsanctified flesh want anyone or anything coming against its innate perverse or not perverse sexual desires or sexual pleasures once experienced or, at that, any sinful pleasures to tell it to stop. But we cannot “be lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.” 2 Timothy 3:4 And, “[she or he – words in brackets here mine] who lives in selfpleasure has died while living.” 1 Timothy 5:6 And sin’s pleasures only last for a short time. So, no matter how much we want to justify sexual sin we are no longer under the will of God, (Matthew 6:10) but under our own will;
“rebelling against the words of God and despising the counsel of the Most High.” Psalms 107:10 Temptations of all forms of lust will always be with us. The devil is alive and doing well. They will do works through open doors and knock on closed doors regardless of being in Christ. Let me tell you they will get in, and don’t think Christianity is a refuge from the bad, or from evil spirits. We are not exempt or from temptation or does God wave a magic wand to wipe away all homosexual desire, it remains. Same-sex attraction remains a part of the soul to become just a lust of the flesh, not an identity. We live in an earthly body and on the earth, and the sinful nature will want to live for itself, God or no God. It is just the way it is, our flesh wages war against our self and The Spirit of Christ Jesus. Subjecting our flesh to Christ is not a full guarantee of loss of memory, the soul’s sensual programming or that we will never grapple with same-sex desires or samesex sensual companionship ever again. “Blessed is the man who endures temptation, because having been approved he will receive the crown of life which the Lord promised to the ones loving Him. James 1:12 Blood Covenant provides the way out of all sexual bondages and weakens it. Blood Covenant provides mercy and grace, redemption through the forgiveness of sins. Yes, Blood Covenant provides power to stay dead and once delivered out from bonds of any sexual sins to then yield the spirit, soul and body as instruments of righteousness. “Behold, God is mighty, and He does not despise, He is mighty in strength of heart. He will not keep the wicked alive, but He gives justice to the afflicted. He does not withdraw His eyes from the righteous, but they are like kings on the throne; yea, He causes them to sit forever, and they are very high. And if they are bound in chains, or caught in cords of affliction, then He declares to them their work and their transgressions, that they have behaved proudly. He also opens their ear to instruction, and commands that they turn back from iniquity. If they hear and serve, they shall spend their days in good, and their years in pleasures. But if they do not obey, they shall pass away by the sword, and they shall die without 33
knowledge. But the ungodly in heart heap up anger; they cry not when he has bound them. Their soul dies in youth, and their life ends among the sodomites.” Job 36:5-14 We are children of the free woman, not the bondwoman to sins power. We no longer need to be bound to be ruled over by the lusts of the flesh. We have a Counselor, a Friend who can at any time cause any sexual gratification to lose its power for fulfilment. It works, you can be anointed to live in a state of no sexual appetite or desire for same-sex romantic sexual encounters or to have a live in same-sex companion. The anointing of the eunuch will do this and provides deliverance. We do not have to stay tossing and turning about our sexuality. We are born free with all Covenant backing us up to walk away from sexual bondage. Choose life as sin brings forth more sin and when it is finished, it brings forth death. Death brings forth pain in the temporal and the eternal. We have heard this in the church repeatedly that “legalism cannot stop immorality, laying down the law just heightens the temptation, stimulates the desire to do so and to take the forbidden fruit.” He knows all the fruits of the root of any sexual sins. Then once He has given us the discernment, He will birth in us a new heart, a heart for change to no longer even worry about being that way and a heart of love to love Him, serve Him and stay with Him. “He restores my soul; He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.” Psalm 23:3 When I was in Bible College I listened to the teacher teach that she could not see in The Word that masturbation was a sin. I did not agree with her as I had done a study to prove that it was sin and a sin that transgresses many laws of The Word – The Lord Jesus Christ. If we look through the lenses of masturbation did Jesus speak on homosexuality, we will find He does indirectly. Homosexual sex is a sexual transgression as much as masturbation. The list of moral laws if transgressed falls under the same correction, instruction and teaching as any sexual transgression or that has become an addiction.
Pre-occupied masturbation is self-love, a form of narcissism, a selfcentered activity. It is stimulation/gratification/abuse/defilement. It seeks a way to escape through the sins of various lusts. A preoccupation with one’s sex organs and orgasm are a means of gratifying one’s un-submitted carnal lower base nature. Self sex is mental sex. Sexual fantasy with numerous peoples is the worship of pleasure rather than God. Fantasy even if not focused on someone is a fixation on one’s own sexual organs and sexual desires. It does not decrease sexual tension but increases it. If you live as a Christian this can cause guilt and shame. We are called to be His Kingdom of kings and priests. Our calling, our freedom does not afford us the liberty to be pedophiles, in homosexual relationships or marriages. Or to have any porn or sexual addiction gratifying the lust of our flesh with self-orgasms self-love. Colossians 3:9 “Put off the old man with its deeds” Romans 8:4, 12, 13 “walk in the Spirit” Romans 8:4-8 “So now we can obey God’s laws if we follow after the Holy Spirit and no longer obey the old evil nature within us. Those who let themselves be controlled by their lower natures live only to please themselves, but those who follow after the Holy Spirit find themselves doing those things that please God. Following after the Holy Spirit leads to life and peace, but following after the old nature leads to death, because the old sinful nature within us is against God. It never did obey God’s laws and it never will. That’s why those who are still under the control of their old sinful selves, bent on following their old evil desires, can never please God.” “But you are not like that. You are controlled by your new nature…” “So dear brothers, you have no obligation whatever to your old sinful nature to do what it begs you to do, for if you keep on following it you are lost and will perish, but if through the power of the Holy Spirit you crush it and its evil deeds, you shall live.”
Romans 6:12-14 “do not let sin control your puny body any longer; do not give in to its sinful desires. Do not let any part of your bodies become tools of wickedness, to be used for sinning; but give yourselves completely to God-every part of you-for you are back from death and you want to be tools in the hands of God, to be used for his good purposes. Sin need never again be your master, for now you are no longer tied to the law where sin enslaves you, but you are free under God’s favor and mercy.” “Don’t you realize that you can choose your own master? You can choose sin (with death) or else obedience (with acquittal). The one to whom you offer yourself-he will take you and be your master and you will be his slave. Thank God that though you once chose to be slaves of sin, now you have obeyed with all your heart the teachings to which God has committed you. And now you are free from your old master, sin; and you have become slaves to you new master, righteousness.” “so now you must let yourselves be slaves to all that is right and holy … But now you are free from the power of sin and are slaves of God, and his benefits to you include holiness …” Galatians 5:16-21 “I mean this: if you are guided by the Spirit you will not fulfill the desires of your lower nature. That nature sets its desires against the Spirit, while the Spirit fights against it. They are in with one another so that what you will to do you cannot do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. Anyone can see the kind of behavior that belongs to the lower nature: fornication, impurity, and indecency; … drinking bouts, orgies and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who behave in such ways will never inherit the kingdom of God. But the harvest of the Spirit is … goodness, fidelity … selfcontrol … And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the lower nature with its passions and desires. If the Spirit is the source of our life, let the Spirit also direct our course.” New English Bible 2 Corinthians 12:21 “I am afraid that, when I come again, my God may humiliate me in your presence, that I may have tears to shed over many of those who have sinned in the past and have not repented of their unclean lives, their fornication and sensuality.” New English Bible
Ephesians 5:3, 5 “fornication and indecency of any kind, or ruthless greed, must not be so much as mentioned among you, 36
as befits the people of God … For be very sure of this: no one given to fornication or indecency, or the greed which makes an idol of gain, has any share in the kingdom of Christ and of God.” New English Bible
Colossians 3:5 “Then put to death those parts of you which belong to the earth – fornication, indecency, lust, foul cravings, and the ruthless greed which is nothing less than idolatry. Because of these, God’s dreadful judgment is impending; and in the life you once lived these are the ways you yourselves followed. But now you yourselves must lay aside all anger, passion, malice, cursing, filthy talk – have done with them! Stop lying to one another, now that you have discarded the old nature with its deeds and have put on the new nature, which is being constantly renewed in the image of its Creator, and brought to know God.” Vines dictionary writes the Greek word in the context uncleanness means; impurity or filthiness in a moral sense; Covering a wide variety of impure sexual practices; One being masturbation, an impure sexual practice. Greek immorality’
“As a man or woman thinketh in the heart, so it is” full of desire for sexual intercourse and or sexual pleasure. There is a choice for us women and men, either allow Covenant to be operative for the control of the base lower sexual drives. To live above our lower nature and to have lusts brought to death under the Holy Spirit’s power. Truth is we can control ourselves; we can put off the lower nature in partnership with The Holy Spirit. We deceive ourselves if we think we cannot live without sexual pleasures or without orgasms. This desire and its power can be put back to sleep, and or kept asleep until the time of awakening. Such as consummation of a marriage and then to be enjoyed thereafter. Masturbation rarely satisfies the instinctive innate desire of us being “a suitable helper” to a man. Sex was created for partnership, not sole ship. Our sexual longings are associated with partnership; A part of the blueprint of our being and the natural order of things and or laws from God. 37
Sex is a gift from God, not only for procreation, but an anointed intimate time for pleasure in a marriage making the man and woman “one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24) Therefore implying intercourse initiates a marriage anything outside a legal marriage is an act of fornication. Fornication is unacceptable and judged by God: “Marriage is honorable; let us all keep it so, and the marriage bond inviolate; for God’s judgment will fall on fornicators and adulterers.” Hebrews 13:4 “You have learned this they were told, “do not commit adultery.” But what I tell you is this; If a man/woman looks on a woman/man with a lustful eye, he/she has already committed adultery with her/him in his/her heart … it is better for you to lose one part of your body than for the whole of it to be thrown into hell …” Matthew 5:27-28 [emphasis added here mine] Jesus’ grace can provide a way of escape, for no temptation has seized man, which is uncommon to man, and he can provide a way to escape this temptation. Instead of masturbation or fornication a way of escape, go to Jesus to Covenant you by the power of His Holy Spirit to put off such practices. We are partakers of His Divine nature … Ask yourself did or would Jesus Christ masturbate? If your answer is no, then should we bring our desires under the control of the Holy Spirit living a moral / holy life like Jesus did? We know legalism cannot stop immorality and legalism addresses the “thou shalt not” and refuses to listen or consider the heart or do a work in the heart for it not to want to when it is told not to. For the un-regenerated flesh the don’t do this, don’t do that, you can’t masturbate, you can’t have sexual encounters outside of marriage will just heighten the temptation. Stimulates the desires to do so and cause one to wonder about the forbidden fruit. But when the heart is changed, and the Word lives richly in the heart, we can choose not to anymore. We surrender our self and our sensual desires to Jesus to rule in the central nervous system.
Sins like the imagining man/woman either those who are married or unmarried while masturbating and or pornographic images to feed or aid masturbation is the transgression of fornication and ruled by lust and is Idolatry (Ephesians 5:5-6). The bottom line pornography and any immoral imaginings for masturbation is for gratification of unbridled sexual desire and a lack of selfcontrol and a work of the works of the flesh, the base nature. A sign of an unsettled soul (Galatians 5:16-21; 2 Peter 2:14) wounds to be healed and flesh to be overcome. To end this chapter I’d say to you, our nurture of a relationship spiritto-Spirit will cause us to want to bring these behaviors under His control; and His capacity to change our heart to stop the act. He can cause us to renew our mind necessary to cause us not to yield to such desires … “for where the Spirit of The Lord is there is liberty” to set us free from these lusts of the flesh or from this sin and other sins (Romans 8:13; 2 Corinthians 3:17). “Be zealous, therefore, and repent” Revelation 3:19 Sons and daughters of disobedience will always sit in affliction sooner or later, “according to the ruler of the authority of the air, the spirit [demonic spirit – words in brackets here mine] now working in the sons of disobedience.” Ephesians 2:2 “having eyes full of an adulteress, and never ceasing from sin; alluring unsettled souls; having a heart busied with covetousness; cursed children;” [Recall no one receives the title child /son unless having been born again and or receiving Jesus as Savior and Lord –words in brackets here mine] 2 Peter 2:14 “Little children, let no one lead you astray [deceive you - words in brackets here mine]; the one practicing righteousness is righteous, even as that One is righteous. The one practicing sin is of the devil, because the Devil sins from the beginning. For
this the Son of God was revealed, that He undo the works of the Devil.” 1 John 3:7-8 “For we have become sharers of Christ, if truly we hold the beginning of the assurance firm to the end; as in the saying, “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts, as in the provocation.” Hebrews 3:14-15 Choose this day who will you serve (Joshua 24:15). Choose life that you may live and that you and your seed may live (Deuteronomy 30:19). Choose this day to make a beginning to keep back from every form of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:22). Choose to allow Him to bring you out of an agreement to have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness (1 Thessalonians 5:2122). Choose this day to ask for help so as to depart from all iniquity and unrighteousness (2 Timothy 2:19) Choose this day to allow Him to bring to death your sexual sin structures (Romans 8:12-13).
Father, I want to totally overcome this sin structure, this bond of iniquity, this transgression, this practice of _____________. I confess I enjoy it and even believe I need to continue in it, I know I have been unwilling to lay it down, but I will to desire to overcome it and trust in You as my source, ability and helper and healer. I ask that you enable me to come free from this bondage that I may be freed from the consequences and effects. Father I confess, repent and renounce these transgressions of ___________. Thank you, Father In Jesus Name I pray Amen.
Masturbation like homosexuality is also not as cut and dry as repentance, renunciation, abstinence and casting out the associated spirits. There are fruits to the root of being bonded in a habitual cycle that someone cannot stop or want to stop or stop and then backslide. Most times these practices need to be viewed not from a sin point of view but seen as psychological bondages. These acts cannot be dealt with in and of themselves as the sin of masturbation, homosexuality, pedophilia or incest. They cannot be addressed like “don’t ever masturbate ever again” or “don’t ever think homosexual or act homosexual ever again” and to add, “don’t be a pedophile ever again”. Each sin structure has to be treated or viewed as unique and personal, the whole persona, the sexuality has to be re-educated. However, it does not lessen the responsibility because of the transition in healing or understanding the roots. For example, “I know I am doing what is wrong, it is stronger than I.” Grace is not a substitute for continued backsliding when you have knowledge of His power to sustain, save from any temptation and keep you pressing on towards recovery and Him understanding your heart and your unconscious motives. Jesus is the “Delivering One,” and we have to intertwine in His Spirit of discernment to give us why we became bonded to the sin of masturbation or homosexuality and to also add again for those in pedophilia and incest.” This gift gives us self-discernment to discern our own heart why we started, why we continue the practice or backslide and what we believe. This gift also gives the heart of The Father and Jesus, their compassion, understanding and understanding our fallen nature, and the gift gives His scriptural heart of laws of holiness, His righteous instructions. This gift also gives discernment when unclean spirits are at work, what spirit is pressing on us, what message they bring against our mind, what message they started against our mind and what are their legal rights 41
of passage and or doorway for being there in our members and over our lives. Receive peace, be at rest with yourself and embrace your reality. Be blessed and be a blessing.

Understanding and Overcoming Homosexuality Did Jesus Speak on Homosexuality? The question continues to be asked if Jesus Christ addressed homosexuality. If He did He did not find it necessary to write these words in red letter.
The answer why is simple and you will find it in this book. This book will explain in a Biblical framework homosexuality from another angle.
To bring witness once again that moral codes of conduct are written for us in understandable words as laws. Jesus is the same yesterday today and tomorrow and no matter what changes on the earth via the governing bodies His Word is forever settled in Heaven.
You may not want to read it, as it gives you a bible slap up the back of the head. It was not my intention, God is God and I follow what I discern He wills me to write.
I believe it is best that you do read the book if you are searching for confirmation. If you are believing it is ok to agree with the political changes and live according to the ways of the world and the doctrines of demons.
Let it answer the question, Did Jesus Speak on Homosexuality?
