Did Jesus Speak Against Homosexual Living?
He probably did privately talk about homosexual activity, homosexual marriage and homosexual fornication in the time He was on earth. He cautioned against sensuality, fornication, idolatry, lustful intent of the eyes, evil thoughts, and deceit, and these can be strongholds in homosexual lust.
I have written twelve books on the subject of homosexuality and in the pursuit of am I able to be a committed lesbian Christian I find no legality.
If you are serious about finding your truth, you can find my teachings online, either free or for a small price (See on page above Prayer Strategies and Books). To rewrite my scriptural belief in this blog it would be a three-hundred-page book so I will keep it brief, and I want to answer the question and to make mention of a certain blog and book author.
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 seems so ridiculous to me for God not allow us to enter at death Jesus Christs New Jerusalem. After all most of us have felt this way since we were very young, we have been sinned against, cursed by the kingdoms of the G/gods and this proclivity is now real!
But God! After all, Jesus 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) If we cannot win the battle with ourselves first, then how do we intertwine in the spiritual man/woman who lives above the lusts of the flesh, the ways of the world and the kingdom of darkness.
Anyway, I guess it also seems ridiculous to not let liars in or idolaters in the gates, when we know everyone is guilty of idolatry and lying in some form or another. But God and after all, He makes the rules, and He defines what takes the form of sexual immorality, what takes the form of 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 liar or idolater when they die or live.
But now let me answer the question did Jesus speak on homosexuality? Well, Jesus speaks indirectly on unlawful sexual intercourse. So, I believe inclusive is homosexual love in His conversations and 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
16. 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 22:15-16)
Jesus is the author of Revelation, and He did speak on 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 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 sulphur, (Revelation 21:8) here it's just for whoever writes their version of Revelation.
Just because there were no red letter words by Jesus does not mean He did not talk about it. He did speak on homosexuality in other Books of the New Testament for they are written by The Spirit of Christ Jesus. The Spirit 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. https://www.thoughtco.com/books-of-the-bible-700274
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 20:30-31, 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 in the Gospels, 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 Priest and King in Covenant with Him 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 transgress into these actions. See the list of scriptures on verses on sexual sin at https://www.thoughtco.com/bible-verses-about-sexual-immorality-699956
Jesus spoke on immoral behaviour in divorce because of adultery (Matthew 5:32, 19:9), the adulteress who He told to sin no more (John 7:53) and looking on a woman lustfully (Matthew 5:28). But remember, Jesus spoke and did much that was not recorded (John 20:30-31, 21:25). Yes, He did not speak on the proclivity or homosexual gender identity or sexual orientation other than the eunuch. But the same reason he did not speak on bestiality incest or paedophilia because He had no intention of changing His laws to approve of these conducts.
I’d say in His wisdom there are many reasons for not recording the topic or the laws against the behaviour. Anyway, how would one obey, or show their love or desire to serve or prove any topic by 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 sex.”
God approved behaviour is written as God’s laws governing sex and is just that, His, do I like it, no I still will not to marry. These are Covenant stipulations for how a king and a priest can act in His Kingdom and in His presence. His Priestly handbook both Old and New Testaments show us what is prohibited or approved. What pleases Him and how to take hold of His Covenant giving knowledge of how He writes the laws on our hearts to obey them.
He says immorally defiles us (Matthew 15:18-19; Mark 7:21-22) especially if we act out our homosexual desires, also if we engage in any acts on the following list below and those mentioned in previous notations of scriptures.
Verse 6 - no sex with a close relative

Verse 9 - no sex with your sister

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 animals” [internet sourced 26/05/18]
None of these laws above list have been fulfilled, especially same-sex 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.
Please realize the list above is Covenant laws for sexual conduct. You cannot say that Jesus has fulfilled all these laws because He never spoke in red letter about them or 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 on 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.
To clear this up, the young boy servant that was healed by Jesus (Luke 7:1-10) could not have been the centurion’s lover boy. This 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 - no boy sex. I hardly think these Jews would be advocating for this man if he was engaging in homosexual acts and paedophilia with a same-sex boy!
This is a valid thought: what Jew was going to admit publicly his or her same-sex desires? They 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.
It would appear Jesus had no intention of changing His laws about being an active homosexual; I’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 about women in the Gospels. There is no mention of same-sex love as in homosexuality other than the eunuch, but these are those born inter sex. (See blog on Is the Eunuch the Homosexual on this site)
So again, none of the list of laws above have been fulfilled because of Calvary and again, just because Jesus did not speak on them in red letter does not make them permissible.
John Pavlovitz 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 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).
“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 becomes a highly selective use of the text.” ( https://johnpavlovitz.com/2017/07/21/no-gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgender-not-sin/?utm_campaign=coschedule&utm_source=facebook_page&utm_medium=John%20Pavlovitz ) [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 has to have running revelations. Then to add, we are in a ratified Covenant meaning what was in the Old Covenant comes over to the New Covenant would receive his posts errors and perversions of scripture, and they can be classed as damnable heresies (2 Peter 2:1).
We know the 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 they work to turn us one against each other to split to divide the church .
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.” ( https://johnpavlovitz.com/2017/07/21/no-gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgender-not-sin/?utm_campaign=coschedule&utm_source=facebook_page&utm_medium=John%20Pavlovitz ) [internet accessed 26/05/18]
Identity and Orientation differ from actions of homosexuality. Why does this man fail to see and realize the gods and goddesses and their kingdoms are cloaked behind the deception of homosexuality (See my book The Homosexual Spirit). He is seduced himself by them, one kingdom of the water spirits have inroads into his life!
Regardless, He knows that homosexual lust will be a part of us that has to be guarded. He knows it is to be brought under the Spiritual Power of walking in The Spirit of Christ Jesus. This way we do not fulfil that homosexual lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16) that dwells in us.
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. As a man with a woman is to be the 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 curses that outwork the formation of homosexuality I say He does not allow us to live active homosexuals. He would have released us I’m sure of that if He intended to do so, but it appears not so by my studies.
To say Jesus never corrects, cautions or condemns homosexual love is not so 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 these are the lying force and the root causes behind homosexual lust and the proclivity and for those who want to be transgender - the opposite sex because of such physical, mental, sexual and emotional abuses.
Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy, and He proclaims that nothing unclean can enter His gates to reside in His New Jerusalem eternally. Anything anti-Christ or anti-Christian in character cannot enter in, and this means to me no practicing lesbian or gay man can enter in.
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. I still think to date regardless of what I know "God is it really such a big deal?"
I am going to answer that question one day, by knowledge I know many why's, but my heart does not marry up with all these truths, lol I'm still in survival mode of saving my soul from hell. Don't get me wrong I'm over the lesbian personality and the lusts but if I could get into heaven as a lesbian Christian my preference would be to be that way again.
Be blessed and be a blessing
