          Beloveds, we must clear up the lie that when the Lord told Joshua he would have good success through obeying the Law, that this was meant for Christians today. The Lord told this to Joshua that in obeying the Old Covenant of the Law God would give him success in conquering certain lands and taking these lands for the nation of Israel: Joshua 1: 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
          
          
          
          Also in keeping the Old Covenant of the Law, (which is all they had from God), he would not face the wrath of God and die as Aaron and Moses did for their disobedience to God in not keeping the Old Covenant of the Law: Num. 27: 12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel. 13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered. 14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
          
          Moses never preached that the Old Covenant of the Law would make anyone permanently righteous in the sight of God. Here is the truth, preached by our Saviour Jesus Christ: Jhn 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
          
           Luk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.
          
          See Galatians 3, which explains God’s purposes for the Law; and how Jesus Christ has delivered us from it for all time. Feel free to study on your own the numerous verses that fully declare that Jesus Christ is the eternal Saviour and final sole source of eternal salvation for all time for all who believe in Him. See John 14:6.

          

          Anyone willfully claiming salvation based on keeping the Old Covenant of the Law and/ or combining it with the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, or anything else is not considered a Christian according to the Bible.

          
          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.

          
          Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the CURSE: for it is written, CURSED is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that NO MAN is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

          1Ti. 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
          7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

          1Ti 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

          John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    Jesus Christ, God the Son, Creator, Saviour, High Priest, Lord, King…

     

    Heb. 1: 8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. 10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: 11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; 12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

     

    Dear saints (G40 hagios) God the Father declares His Son Jesus Christ as God the Son and equal with the Father and Co-Creator of heaven and earth; having in Himself eternal life. Therefore, all claiming to be Christians must declare the same things that God the Father declares about His Son Jesus Christ without waver, and absolutely no doubt. In this same way who we are our- identity springs from the truth and love of God the Father through Jesus Christ our Lord, God and Saviour, never from the world.

    Temptations in the lives of Christians are never sent by God, this cannot be said often enough. Jas 1: 13Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

     

    Brothers and sisters, it was very uncomfortable for me that I did not feel any joy when going through various temptations, even though the Bible states clearly that joy is one of the fruits of the Spirit: Gal 5:22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

     

    Jas 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

     

    Lord Jesus ran His race with joy, I knew His example is the only one to follow. I have authority and power through the Holy Spirit to live a holy life; I did not have to cower within myself when desires for forbidden things of any sort arose out of my old nature; or from anywhere else. I accepted the truth that these tests and trials are a part of our lives that are  windows of opportunity for me (for us all) to meet every one of them.   I accepted and believed with joy that I had to face every challenge with conviction, fully convinced I would past my tests and trials out of love for God.

    I gained a whole new mindset; some things were conquered easily, and some things were hard won, it can go that way at times. Through it all I learned how powerful God is to aid us in every way in this life. To God alone be the glory. Most wonderfully Jesus gives us full knowledge that these trials and temptations serve to strengthen, refine us and prove the genuineness of our faith before God:

     

    Jas 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

     

    Jas. 1: 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

     

     1Pe 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

     

    Brothers and sisters; my lessons learned from our Lord, I stopped shaking under difficulties. God’s power transformed my life, and fear outside of our Lord, drained away. The lessons of the Lord impacted dealing with any temptation; knowing its purpose, and most importantly that I can have the joy of pleasing Lord Jesus as I obey Him out of love, showing my faith is genuine, by His power. His help, His power, His compassion is available to every Christian, for He is no respecter of persons. To Lord Jesus be the totality of power, dominion, might, sovereignty, praise, thanks giving, love, honor, adoration and worship forever.

    In my past, brothers and sisters, before I knew any better from the love and truth of the Bible, I definitely did not welcome any temptations with joy. I had the attitude of oh boy, why do I have to go through all this? I am specifically conveying here those temptations that arise out of my own flesh, those inner personal forbidden desires that tempt me to want to do them. We are not ignorant, however, of those temptations that arise out of the world and the devil, but that is not the subject of this study, but feel free to look into it on your own.

     

     

     

    Wow, I thought, (wrongly), I am alone and the only one tempted in this way. I also had a lot of sadness and anxiety, would I fail to conquer in the times of temptations? I had a lot of wrong motives in dealing with temptations in my life, and more often than not, it led to failure to successfully deal with them. One day, I opened up the Bible and read:  1: 1Co 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

     

    Whew!! What a relief!! I was not a spiritual freak among the brethren, we all have this issue in common. God was with me most importantly, (He is with and in us all),and assured me that He would not allow more on me than I could bear. My fear of cracking under pressure fled away as I embraced God, who would not let me fail, would help me so that I would never fall victim to my own wrongful lusts, and sully His Name and hurt myself and others. This meant that I was NOT to be passive, but Lord Jesus would show me, give me the tools and the ability I needed to overcome in these areas.

    Rom 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

     

    At the end of the day, Christian man, Christian woman, you will be able to bring God the victory, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Christian man, Christian woman, never give up; never give in, Jesus is with you always. He never ever leaves you nor any of us alone ever. God knows how to deliver the godly out of temptation.

     

    Reach deep down into the truth of salvation and when the temptation arises, put it to death by the power and authority Jesus gives to you, and all who trust in Him.

    love

    Praise God, who keeps us, saved and safe by grace, and walking in His love and eternal truth of the New Covenant of Jesus Christ. The Bible exhorts, guides and teaches us that salvation is only through Jesus Christ alone. The Bible also warns us too that as in the past, even so it is now that some willfully, unrepentantly teach heresies to turn believers and those seeking salvation away from the eternal gospel of Lord Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, thank God for the multitude of faithful pastors and teachers who faithfully teach salvation through Jesus Christ alone, adding many to the church through the ages.

     

    The Bible tells us the kind of people who bring heresies into the church whose sole purpose is to lead people away from the everlasting truth that Jesus Christ is the only sole Saviour for all eternity.:

    2Pe 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

    Heretics on purpose, willfully, and unrepentantly deny that Jesus Christ is our only Saviour.

     

    Lord Jesus tells us who is their father: Jhn 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

     

    Brothers and sisters, the Bible never sugar coats the truth about heretics nor anything else. Let us speak clearly where the Bible speaks, and let us speak the same things that it speaks and teaches to all men correctly interpreted and to be lived out of love for our only Savior, Jesus Christ.

    love

    Brothers and sisters, the Bible makes it absolutely, and abundantly clear that no sin whatsoever is acceptable to God. For the Christian who is tempted by homosexuality or any other sin, they must repent. Repentance, meaning not just feeling sorry, but changing our minds about any particular sin,  and all sins, without exception, renouncing them in our hearts, and turning away from them completely, and refusing to carry them out in our actions, and rejecting them out of hand even in our thoughts and feelings.

    Regarding the sin of homosexuality; God absolutely condemns homosexuality along with ALL SINS:

    Lev 18: 22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 

    Lev 20:13 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.

     

     

    1 Co. 6: 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

     

    There are absolutely no excuses acceptable, nor options for disobeying the absolute eternal truth and final answer of the Bible: False and corrupt teachers try to make excuses for homosexuality and sin in general. God says of such through the Bible:  Jde 1:4  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. The unrepentant are doomed to eternal punishment, torment, damnation and death; forever excluded from the presence of God for all eternity. We must tell all men the truth, whether they like it or not; there is a dreadful, horrible, eternal price to pay for rejecting Jesus Christ the only Saviour. Do not dumb down or soft sell the gospel, tell the whole gospel truth always, for it alone is the eternal truth and final answer for all times, whereby men can know the full truth, be saved, and know how to live God's way all the time.

    God speaks explicitly, and gives His final eternal answer that there is no excuse acceptable for any sin including the specific sin of homosexuality. Of those who reject the final eternal truth of the Bible: see  Rom 1:20 to Rom 1:32.  .

    However, you Christian woman,  you Christian man, you are not without help in the mist of your temptations. Jesus Christ our Saviour, Jesus Christ our High Priest, Jesus Christ our Advocate ever before the throne of our Father God, is now and eternally always making intercession for you and all of us specifically, and in general. Jesus Christ our Deliverer, has delivered multitudes of the godly now and always and He will deliver you for He is all powerful and faithful.

    Do not fret, nor be afraid of falling, for Jesus Christ will keep you from falling, and Jesus Christ will strengthen you and make a way of escape for you out of all your trials and temptations.

     

    Jesus Christ has ordained victory for His people, so that we shall overcome and say and do the following from our hearts out of love for our Lord Jesus Christ: 1Th 4:4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; 5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:

    There are many medical conditions, including accidents injuries etc. that can impact anyone’s physical bodies in such a way that others may ostracize them and even try to harm them, which is wrong and unacceptable. Even the impact of certain medical problems with hormones may cause a boy to look effeminate, or in a girl to look masculine in appearance even though they are heterosexual. We must be very careful not to label people based on medically based problems that impact appearance and can cause them to look in appearance as something they are not.

    Brothers and sisters we ought to be careful to love and encourage those finding themselves in such difficult circumstances.   

    The church must continue to encourage them to keep trusting in God, who is also our Creator, we do not make ourselves, therefore they have nothing to be ashamed of. They must continue to trust in God. We must tell them the truth that there are those who will wrongfully slander them, reject them and even try to harm them based on their evidence based medical conditions etc. We, brothers and sisters, must encourage them to go about their business, maintaining appropriate boundaries, understanding that they cannot control other people, but can love them anyway, not allowing ignorant and or hostile persons to interfere with their lives.

    We must tell them and all who suffer any evidenced based medical conditions, accidents etc. impacting their appearance, the truth that God made them for His pleasure also, to worship Him and to delight themselves in Him, the same as all His creations. Through trusting Jesus Christ all such can go in peace in what many times are difficult lives, knowing, confident without question who they are in Christ and to whom they also belong. In Christ they find peace and strength to more than survive but to also thrive in the truth love and joy of the Lord.

    Indeed, beloveds, many have received an evidence based medical challenge, either at birth or at some other point in this life of various types of illnesses, accidents, etc., they ALL must be understood as that which is only temporary, and only a test in this life. Therefore, they can remain hopeful,unshaken and unashamed. This is because their identity is rooted in the truth of scripture of the word of God and not the condition of their physical bodies or the shifting opinions of mere men. Let us comfort them through the Holy Spirit, and encourage them and all believers that when Jesus Christ our Saviour comes He will make all things new-new heavens, new earth and new undying bodies that will never again suffer any form of disease etc. Jesus Christ our Saviour and High Priest over the house of God changes everything.

     

     Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

    Lk. 19: 11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear. 12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. 13And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

    Regardless of our current tests, trials, sufferings and difficulties in this life, God will enable us as a whole and individually to do this very thing by His almighty power through Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord.

    God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked. Dear saints (G40 hagios), it is absolutely not the will of God that anyone should perish.

    Eze 33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

    2 Pe. 3: 8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

    Christians should not fall into the trap that only those who die in certain unrepentant sins will go to hell upon physical death. Whether a person is a practicing homosexual (male or female), or so called transgender, adulterer, whoremonger or any and all other sins, we must tell them the whole truth of the gospel, even if they are members of our families or circle of friends and even to the world in general.

    We never want to and cannot force anyone to be saved, but we can preach to all the gospel. All who believe are saved. Those who reject Jesus Christ, will be condemned to hell. Even if some do not believe, it cannot now nor ever nullify the everlasting truth and love of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Some question why should the church single out the particular sins of homosexuals, and so called transgenders. This is mainly because this group and their supporters are making every effort to legislate these sins into constitutional law so that it becomes the law of the land. This group and their supporters are rabidly indoctrinating children in the schools through the propaganda of false biology, false science and false medical information, that these sins are normal and even inborn. Ultimately, their goal is to make it a so called hate crime for any opponents, including the church to speak or teach against them, thereby silencing opposition.

    Christians can oppose these things, especially for the protection of children, in the spiritual realm through preaching the gospel and prayer. In the secular realm Christians have the authority to oppose these things, among others, non- violently through their vote, becoming elected officials in the political arena, and raising their voices in protest in the schools, in public as well. Christians can hold public office: for example:

    Rom 16:23 Gaius mine host, and of the whole church, saluteth you. Erastus the chamberlain of the city saluteth you, and Quartus a brother. Chamberlain meaning: the superintendent of the city's finances, the treasurer of a city (or of treasurers or quaestors of kings).

    The Bible does not forbid Christians from holding any political office, nor working or serving in any lawful capacity in the secular world. There are no secular laws-yet, forbidding Christians to run for and hold any public office in the secular world. Understand, brethren, Christians cannot legislate anyone into heaven, we must keep preaching the New Testament gospel message. In the secular realm we cannot stop people from being unrepentantly evil, but we can take steps to hold back the evil and thwart it from harming children and others. We can dry up the sources of  tax payer funding for those coalitions of co-conspirators bent on perverting innocent children and others. Christian must not fund the boys and girls scouts who allow openly homosexual males and females to lead scout groups. Hold back your dollars from such, and seek to fund those who will actually protect children from perverse persons. Until Jesus Christ our Lord returns, be fearless, loving, kind, and true to the One who will enable us to do those very things.

    The overwhelming eternal New Covenant of Grace, love and truth of Jesus Christ, continually rains down upon the hearts and minds of His people. However, of the first solely human sinner high priest, Aaron, of the covenant of the Law God said:

    Lev 16:2 And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.

    In other words, brethren, Aaron the first of the sinful solely human high priests was told in no uncertain words, that his high priesthood was limited, and under pain of death, he could enter the most holy place limited to one day in the year. All of the sinful human high priests of this now cancelled priesthood of the Law, died off and had to be replaced over and over, therefore they had no continuous ministry.

    But of Jesus Christ God says to all for all time:

     Heb 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Here God the Father proclaims directly Jesus Christ as God, the Son.

    God declares Jesus Christ the eternal High Priest

    Heb 5:5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.

     

    Heb 6:20  Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

    Jesus Christ is the true eternal and only High Priest that we need:

    Heb 7:26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

    When I am in need, when any of us His people are needing help, we do not have to be ashamed or afraid that Jesus won’t understand our troubles, trials and pains, why?

    Jesus knows exactly how we feel:

     Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

    Heb 2:17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

    Therefore, brethren, no need to hang back, no need to try to hide anything from Jesus seeing He is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent. There is no need to be afraid to come to Jesus for help. No need to think Jesus wouldn’t understand us. We can run to Jesus Christ our permanent Saviour and High Priest at all times for God says: 

    Heb. 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

    We can ditch being fearful of people of what they may say or do to us:  Heb. 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Jesus Christ will always help us; Jesus Christ will always comfort us who believe in Him.

    All who believe in Jesus Christ, have the command, privilege, the right, and the delight to unlimited worship of Him. Let us boldly enter into His presence, now and at all times to worship, and pour out love offerings, thanks and praise offerings and blessings to His name. Our strong God, whose power is unlimited, will allow nothing to separate us from Him, and there is not the power to pluck us from the hands of the almighty. There is help and comfort from the Almighty at all times and in the times of our needs.

    Rejoice with me, brothers and sisters, and open your mouths in praise to our Lord Jesus Christ. For an outbreak of worship and praise has come. Open your mouths brothers and sisters with thanks for our great salvation, the healing of broken hearts and the release of them that have been bound long time. For, God, through faith in Jesus Christ; is abundant in truth, love, and mercy, and has taken away the garments of mourning, and heaviness and has given to all who believe the garments of worship and praise through the Holy Spirit.

    Jesus Christ our sinless Saviour who gave his life, shed His sinless blood, died on the cross bodily and rose again to permanently take away our sins is worthy of the totality of our worship and praise. Brothers and sisters let us continually, as priests under the High Priesthood of Jesus Christ, pour out liberal libations of love offerings, worship and praise offerings to Him for He alone is worthy. How good it is saints (G40 hagios) to sit in private and also when we are  gathered together with one another and in fellowship with Jesus Christ our eternal love. What a blessing it is to know at all times that He lavishes us His people super-abundantly with His love, undeserved, unearned, un-buyable, unrepayable; but given to us freely and to all that believe, out of His eternal love, truth and mercy. Think on this brothers and sisters that each of us are represented as a whole, and we must gratefully be careful to apply it personally to ourselves individually by also affirming in this way:  “ I am a_______”: We ought to boldly and faithfully say of ourselves individually and as a whole all that Jesus Christ has said of us, for it is IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO LIE: 1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

     

     Peculiar means: preserved.

     1Jo 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

     

    Jhn 15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

     

    Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

     

    1Jo 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

     

     1Jo 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

      Jde 1:1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

     

    1Co 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

      

     Eph 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

    Regardless of our occupation, role in life  on earth our eternal identities spring from Lord Jesus Christ for all eternity.

    I know this might surprise some Christians but the last time disciples or disciple is mentioned in the Bible is Acts 21:16. The Bible references this group as those who were directly taught by Jesus Christ, during the time of His earthly ministry. Christians, therefore, are not limited in only being disciples, because through the fullness of His ministry, He has made us so much more.

    Escape from the wrath of God through faith in Jesus Christ is available for whosoever will, all who believe on Him. However, those who persist in unbelief, despite many warnings, at physical death, will be condemned to hell to await the day when God shall judge the damned who will then be cast into the lake of fire to burn in everlasting torment.

    Out of love and truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ,  all Christians must persistently reject, refute and rebuke the hate and lies of the pedagogues of pederasty; and the demagogues of false diversity and false biology, and every other false doctrine condoning  unrepentant sin,  through upholding the absolute truth and love of the word of God, the full gospel of Jesus Christ.

    The fact that God’s truth and love are eternally absolute, closes out and demolishes ALL arguments against it for all eternity. The totality of who we are is based upon the word of God, not the shifting personal opinions, doctrines of people or even our own personal opinions. Personal opinions, strongly or deeply held emotional "feelings" and all man-made doctrines change at a whim, but the ABSOLUTE truth of the word of God abides forever in His eternal absolute truth and love.

    God warns all, that sin can have irreversible physical and other consequences on earth, even for those who are forgiven. Christ is our answer to a fallen world for all time. As ambassadors of Christ, commanded to give out the good news of salvation, we hold forth the absolute love and truth of eternal life. 

    2Co 5:17

    Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

    As Christians, brothers and sisters, we love God, one another and all men, even our enemies; nevertheless, the totality of Christian love can NEVER be separated from the everlasting ABSOLUTE ETERNAL truth of the Bible.

     

    This is at the heart of the issues with all who reject the absolute truth of scripture. What they all really want is a false man-made ever changing doctrine of so-called love totally devoid of absolute truth, that allows people to freely live with an conscience  unchallenged, unchanged, unconvinced and un-convicted  of sin; contrary to the absolute truth of scripture.  All such persons are fighting a losing battle against God, who is invincible, ( invulnerable, indestructible, unconquerable, unbeatable) ,  in power and might. All must carefully understand this- God has already won every single battle for all eternity. Therefore Jesus Christ says unto all of us His people to rest confidently in Him:

    Eph 6:10

    Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

    There is someone that not only Christians but the whole world should fear for Lord Jesus tells us : Luk 12:5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

    Brothers and sisters we serve God out of love for what He has done for us, and righteously reverence Him in holy fear. No Christian should get stuck in seeing only certain sins as offensive to God, for the Bible tells us: 1 Co. 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

    All come to faith in Jesus as they are, but by the grace of God none remain as what they were. JESUS CHANGES EVERYTHING!

    As Christians some of us who send our children off to public schools, and even some private schools, must understand that some will come home with more than the academic curriculum learnings, but also indoctrinated with the lie that they can choose their own gender, rather than the truth that it is fixed at birth. The children may come home with the lie that homosexuality and sexual variants is inborn, rather than the truth that it is a choice, always the wrong choice. Brothers and sisters, without wavering we must teach our children the truth and to stand upon the truth of scriptures, against all opponents.

    In any times the church of Jesus Christ has nothing to fear from anyone nor anything: 2 Ti. 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (Fear meaning: timidity, fearfulness, cowardice).  (sound mind meaning: self-control, moderation).

    Rom 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

     

    As Christians we do not have to be scared of anyone or anything, it is Jesus Christ who upholds all of us by His Almighty absolute, unbeatable, unconquerable eternal and everlasting power. The devil would love for us Christians to believe the lie that you and me, brothers and sisters should tremble with fear and go run and hide because the world hates us. Well the world hates, Jesus too and it still means absolutely nothing, for He and His people are still going strong, and always will for all eternity.

    The devil, a defeated and doomed foe of all that is good, couldn’t defeat Jesus and he never will. Nor will the gates of hell ever prevail against the church of Jesus Christ.

    Brothers and sisters let us go to church. The eternal boundaries of the church (the body of Christ composed of all believers universally in heaven and earth) are not based on changing secular, norms, morals, race, or cultural changes over time. The stability of the true church is guaranteed and over seen by the power of God, and is based on the Bible correctly interpreted and lived.

    Firstly, the so-called “welcoming churches” or "open arms churches" (you can google them online to see who they are), who embrace transgenderism, the lie that gender is a feeling and not assigned at birth, who embrace homosexuality because all that matters is love-any kind at all, and lastly and most terrible of all, who, reject the truth of the Bible to promote the lie that God accepts sexual deviants and homosexuals into heaven-REPENT!, REPENT!, REPENT!

    Homosexuals, cry discrimination, however, this is hypocrisy as the homosexual world is extremely segregated, because they are very prejudiced against minorities, especially blacks. Homosexuals have a lilly white power and social structure. A black person or other minority is only useful as a token to be used for their so called cause of diversity.

    WHAT THE STATES MUST DO, AND OPPONENTS OF SO CALLED SEX EDUCATION IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS MUST DEMAND.

    States must pull sex education out of all public schools, and place it within departments of public health centers where parents, not just the children, who with parental consent can learn age appropriate, medical and biological  evidence based information on a variety of health issues, not just the sexual.

    All children, and especially those who will also be hurt by the current faux medical and faux science sex education in the public schools are those who want therapy or treatment to cure their homosexual, or variant sexual feelings, but are forbidden or intimidated not to ask for it. Faux sex education also interferes with the treatment of those suffering medical based endocrinal, gynecological, adrenal, and certain other medical issues that due to the over- abundance of hormones may cause a boy to look effeminate and a girl to look masculine. Those suffering under or undeveloped genitalia need on-going sound medical treatment, not faux science sex education. The public health arena with medical, health educators, and licensed counselors would offer an abundance of appropriate help.

     

    Most public schools do not provide a sound education as is; therefore, these poorly performing schools of the united states, cannot be trusted to properly and appropriately offer sound evidence based medical and biological sex education to its children. We must do all that we can to see that children exit these public schools with sound life skills that will enable them to be self -supporting, able to care for themselves and others. Who will stand for the children? How long will we tolerate children exiting the public schools who know how to put on a condom to have sex, with the same sex or every one they can; but can barely read, write and do basic math??

    Children cannot vote, cannot go to war, at least in the states, cannot marry, cannot live independently, cannot drink, cannot smoke etc. This is because children do not have the developmental/experiential capacity to make major decisions of a magnitude that can impact them a life time. Therefore, brothers and sisters, no one should have the right to be teaching or asking children to choose what gender they want to be, or to discard the truth that gender is fixed at birth.

     

    Insurance companies should be discouraged from providing medically unnecessary surgery and treatments of pumping hormones and other chemicals into children to prevent natural development and foster characteristics contrary to their gender at birth. Doctors, parents, guardians should be reported to child protective services to prevent this dangerous and highly lethal type of treatment which is a form of abuse, and child endangerment. States must mandate an appropriate age of consent to thwart children from being subjected to these dangerous practices. love, serola

    The CDC has powers of isolation and Quarantine to treat/prevent the spread of disease. However, the CDC has no powers to make sex education mandatory in the public schools. It does serve in an advisory capacity and makes recommendations in sex education. The purpose of sex education is supposed to be for the purpose to prevent/and or reduce pregnancies stds, hiv and other communicable diseases in school age populations.

     

    Sex education initially had nothing to do with transgender, or non- binary sexuality. Non- binary and transgender being a catch all for any and all forms of gender faux science gender variants.  

    Here, is how sex education through activist homosexual educators, started. In the earliest grades in the public schools, children started to be indoctrinated and programmed to accept homosexuality as normative. This was without parental consent although later a low published opt -out option was allowed in some schools to parents who did not agree with this kind of teaching. Heather has two mommies book appeared over twenty-five years ago to infiltrate and corrupt the basic biological understanding of sexuality being between a man and a woman as the norm. Here are some excerpts: Juan and David begin to talk about their fathers, and Heather starts to cry because she does not have a daddy. At this point, Molly comforts Heather and tells her that she is special because she has two mommies and not all of the children have a daddy (although the reasons differ). After the children draw pictures of their families, Molly says, "The most important thing about a family is that all people in it love each other." This quote sums up the entire story and that each family is unique.

    What makes this book controversial?

    Heather has two mothers and no father.

    page 13 "I don't have a daddy,' Heather says."

    page 15 "I don't have any mommies. I have two daddies,' Stacy says proudly."

    The kids were taught to believe and see homosexual or lesbian couples as “same sex couples”.

    Neither homosexuals nor lesbians are ever mentioned in this story which is what two men are and two women are respectively. In fact, this is a part of an on-going attempt of language scrubbing to erase these terms so as to diminish anyone’s objection to them by presenting them as something else more akin to the normative. This is a prime example of children being brain washed to believe falsely that family structure is based solely on love and nothing else. Especially because counter or opposing views are deliberately suppressed. To prevent this, proponents of the truth should among other things, continue to address homosexual males and homosexual females as such regardless of gender. Although a person may "strongly feel" that they were born in the wrong body; there is absolutely no medical or biological findings proving the existence of a so called “transgender” person; therefore no one should be compelled to refer to such persons as other than their gender at birth.  Let us continue to call it what it is. We are still only looking at things in a secular way.    love, Serola

     Many parents feared, and strongly objected then and now, rightfully so, that sex education would be the doorway through which activists homosexuals using faux (false) science, would enter in to the public schools to corrupt the minds of children to accept homosexuality and so called gender variants as normative.

    The CDC gives big bucks ( of tax payer monies) to fund sex education to the states and private organizations:  SEX EDUCATION: initially the CDC (center for disease control) upon its findings (Based on a self- report survey!) that stds (sexually transmitted diseases) were highest among school age boys and girls; recommended sex education for all boys and girls in the public schools. The sole purpose was to prevent/ stem the spread of stds,hiv and other communicable diseases  among school age boys and girls. who were said to be disproportionately represented in contracting stds, through educating them to take preventive measures, INCLUDING ABSTINENCE. IN FACT, IT WAS MANDATED THAT NO SEX EDUCATION WAS TO BE PRESENTED WITHOUT THE ACCOMPANYING EDUCATION ON THE CHOICE OF ABSTINENCE. Abstinence Education is:  Abstinence from vaginal, anal, and oral intercourse is the only 100% effective way to prevent HIV, other STDs, and pregnancy. The correct and consistent use of male latex condoms can reduce the risk of STD transmission, including HIV infection. However, no protective method is 100% effective, and condom use cannot guarantee absolute protection against any STD or pregnancy. CDC claims it is ineffective!!! However, some states require it to always be included in sex education. Series to be continued. love, serola

    While the secular world slept, various homosexual activist and their activists organizations, including those who have infiltrated and taken over legitimate state governmental organizations concluded that to gain acceptance of their perverted concept of sexuality and gender, they would have to gain access to the children at the earliest stages of development as possible, through various sex education programs,  to over time brainwash, program and desensitize children, and gain their acceptance that sexual perversion and so called “fluid” and/or “non-binary gender” was acceptable and most importantly normative. The non-biological understanding of gender and sexuality can absolutely be termed SCIENCE FICTION, FANTASY. It is hocus pocus, misdirection and deflection for the purpose to stamp out the fact that there is objective truth regarding biological gender and sexuality that does not change because anyone does not believe nor accept it. Opposition to the unchanging truth of biology is met with name calling, blaming, shaming, and in some cases legal action to silence proponents of the truth. Currently there is no national mandatory law requiring sex education in the schools-YET. Sex education is mandated through various states some of who allow opt out options for parents who object to it.   love, serola

    Some falsely accuse the church of being asleep, which is not true. It is secular society that has been asleep, but slowly awakening to the truth that the minds and hearts of its children and young people are being corrupted by homosexual propaganda and indocrination. I don’t approve of them, but have you ever seen a bull fight? The bull is massive and could easily overcome a human being, but very often the reverse occurs. Instead of charging the man (matador) the man manipulates, misdirects the bull to charge a red flag that he waves.

    In this way the man is subsequently able to slowly kill the bull stabbing him each time he charges the red flag. The weakened bull is killed finally by a lethal stabbing. The red flag of a man dressed as a woman using the women’s bathroom is the red flag of misdirection hiding the terrible truth from the secular world, that legislators are busy secretly trying to make a law that criminalizes anyone from actually stopping this nonsense.

    We need to let these legislators know that “we see you, we know who you are, and your secret is out, and we strongly do not approve of your agenda”. Let us vote them out of office, because they do not appreciate their jobs of being advocates for the will of the people. Let us replace them with those who will work for the best interests of our children and young people. Keep up on the progress of the equality bill and keep up the pressure that this kind of bill is unacceptable and will have consequences for its sponsors. (No one is speaking of physical violence here, as Americans we know the power of legitimate ongoing nonviolent fierce protest.) Brothers and sisters amendments to the constitution, and adding laws not addressed in it is the way gay activists seek to enshrine these transgender and homosexual laws into effect that will impact the whole of the country, by becoming the law of the land. We are still looking at this issue in a secular, but important way at this time.
