We all know that Jesus had to break a lot of molds, mindsets, false theology, false doctrines and teachings to set not only women free but those under the bondage of false doctrines of the Pharisees and Sadducees teachings.
This gives us a premise to show just because one has been to seminary or is ordained as Reverend, Priest, Pastor or ............., does not make their interpretations of Scripture correct or Biblical. Same goes with a denomination like Baptists, Anglicans, Charismatics, Fundamentalists, Lutherans and others are not totally correct either.
Jesus’ redemptive plan for mankind could not be made possible until He had lived under Law Himself. Then to redeem us from all the Mosaic curses of Law He had to fulfill the requirements of the law, fulfill prophecy. He had to return to The Father having reconciled all things unto Himself, thus having reconciled sinners Himself.
To those who believe He gave the right to be called sons. He made believers one new man in the spirit (Ephesians 2:11-22), both male and female being seen as joint-heirs of Christ, and co-heirs of life (Romans 8:17, 1 Peter 3:7). All members in part of the one body Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12-31) and all ministers of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18) all as brides of Christ neither male nor female. Having raised us all up together and seated us together in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus, at the right hand of God (Ephesians 2:6) we all are given these blessings even in our sin bondages or strongholds.
The point I want to bring out is, LGBT who are believers are co-heirs, and how are you treating the LGBT Christian persons. Are you looking at them as if they have leprosy? Or not allowing them to draw water at the well in the cool of the morning?
Jesus did not agree with some of the things Moses spoke of in certain matters. But He did say “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4).
I do not want to view any LGBT persons in church with a Pharisaic mindset or thus sayeth the law. However I do not want to be guilty of: “Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
Jesus believed in, taught and kept all the commandments of God. He commanded His disciples Matthew 28:20 “… to observe all things that I have commanded you” Matthew 15:9
Yet He said: “And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.”
Jesus was greater than Moses, and He told us “you have heard it said but I say.” He has told us to meditate on and abide by His laws and worship in Spirit and Truth. Yet how do we do this when the devil tricks us with scripture, and our flesh also gets sucked into heresy and error. So, give grace to your fellow LGBT brother and sister, you may be in as much error and heresy as they are, it is just in a different area!
Jesus told us about discipleship and surrender in:
"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?"
He told us to foster a heart relationship with Him and said:
"His yoke is easy and His burden light.” Matthew 11:30
His way of life (laws) was easy – His yoke; and He would give us the power to carry out His teachings and His laws by Him saying His burden was light. He told us wolves would come in and divide, and others would be seared in their conscious following other doctrines of devils.
We have such division in doctrine and teachings with the various denominations. So how do we know where God is right, and we are wrong? We study, we investigate, we examine the Bible, we test and approve. We don’t just follow the traditions of men or what Pastor Frank said, or LGBT Pastor Anne said in her sermon on Sunday night.
I don’t know personally any LGBT Christians, only those I read about who admit they are sinners (Romans 3:23). Who believe that Christ died for their sins, and that He rose from the dead, so they don’t have to die an eternal death (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). They believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and believe they are saved (Acts 16:31).
Yes but: “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” (John 5:39) Any person ex or LGBT still must search the scriptures to work out sanctification and discipleship. Grace does not release anyone from behaviour that is contrary to His laws that leads to death. Contrary to His right way of living, His righteousness His commandments that lead to life everlasting.
The point here is, when any LGBT person comes to Christ and goes into a church they like anyone are to have the cup cleaned from the inside out. IF God has allowed ministers of reconciliation to bring the LGBT persons into a church that accepts them and allows them to remain or get married, I would be praying for His Wisdom. Praying if these ministers need to escape from a seared conscious. I will be praying their flock search the scriptures to see if they have eternal life.
Yes it is better they be in church than out, going from darkness to darkness, and to be held in captivity to the kingdom of darkness for their sins upon sins. But it is more better they lay ahold of truth and walk in truth and, pluck out your eye or cut off your hand than be cast into outer darkness.
I have this question to end the blog. Do you embrace the heterosexuals who I believe are spiritually fornicating with another husband in the false movements from the Toronto blessing, iHop, Todd Bentley and Heidi Baker woop? Are you so hard and fast against the LGBT Christians, yet embrace these spiritual fornicators?
The great falling away is prophesied for the church, and we all are targeted. So while LGBT persons are obvious to you the spiritual adulterers are not; but you readily accept them and eat with them and study and worship with them! Heresy and Error gets all of us, gay or straight, Love and how you treat people is a spiritual discipline, how are you going here? Do you favor one type of sinner over the other?
There is a big difference to Bible throwing and speaking the truth in love and in The Spirit. We understand adultery is a stronghold if it be natural or spiritual, so at that, homosexuality is a stronghold. Jesus said "go and sin no more" to the woman caught in adultery, but He knew it was not going to be any easy road for her to overcome. Or for her to work through her root causes or face the next assault of temptation of her flesh or the spiritual attacks that would come. The contrast of gay and straight is here, and for those to walk away from an apostate state is also no easy road. They get out of one net and they are back in another as it was for me before I escaped the false signs and wonder deception.
In my book “Is My Salvation Real” I write how I believe we can know that our salvation is real. https://issuu.com/kathleenmalligan/docs/is_my_salvation_real Check it out.
I have decided to remain in the belief that we cannot be practicing lesbians or gays when we believe it is a transgression of His laws without being at risk of eternal damnation. Looking at the other side of the coin of grace or looking for a legal loop hole will come to my understanding as I continue to remain in the faith - if any exist. As of now I see none exist, I am convinced we have to remain celibate and or renounce homosexuality and to be transformed by the renewing of our mind.
I’m going back to counsel those who believe they want to overcome and understand homosexuality and finish writing a book.
