On Thursday, September 15, 2005, three of our local News Paper Companies, ran Stories in their papers about the high rise, in the “Homosexual and Lesbian” lifestyles, among our “Young people”. The question for this week is; why? Once again the bible will give us the Answer and the Solution to this problem. When JESUS walked among men HE made this Prediction: “As it was in the Days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed [them] all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed”. LUKE 17:28-30. So JESUS did-not leave us blind, on the issue of “Homosexuality and Lesbianism”. The apostle Paul also talked about this when he said: For this cause God gave [the Homosexual and Lesbian] up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet” What is the cause for this? Homosexual and Lesbian “Did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge”, and “God gave [Homosexual and Lesbian] over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient”. ROMANS 1:26-28. What a sad…Commentary about our Brother and Sister, who partake in the Homosexual and Lesbian lifestyle, pray for them, because, if-not for the grace of GOD… it would-be you and I, Amen! Is there any hope for these dear-ones, YES! The bible tells us: “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some [Homosexuals and Lesbians] count slackness; but is longsuffering to [Homosexuals and Lesbians], not willing that any [Homosexuals and Lesbians] should perish, but that all [Homosexuals and Lesbians] should come to repentance” 2 PETER 3:9. The bible also tells us: For we have [A] high priest which [can] be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; [Why? Because JESUS] was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin”. HEBREWS 4:15. In other words, JESUS also was tempted to be a “Homosexual”, because the text said JESUS was “tempted in all points of HIS life”. But let me quickly say, “Homosexuality” was not were the Devil really Tempted JESUS. Most of JESUS Major temptations were in the area, for HIM to use HIS DIVINE Power. This is why the bible said: the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread”. MATTHEW 4:3. Could JESUS have turned the stones into bread? YES! JESUS was, “GOD with Us”. JESUS was also tempted; to commit adultery! But you say that’s not true…because JESUS was never married! Are you sure? The bible tells us: “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for [the Church]” JESUS was married, and to this-day HE’S is still married, to HIS church. The apostle Paul said: “This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church”. EPHESIANS 5: 25,32. Speaking about JESUS, Matthew said: “While [JESUS] the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept”. MATTHEW 25:5.Have you ever stopped and think what would have happen, if JESUS would have sinned, just once? It would have been good-by to HIS life and also the end of our-lives! So JESUS was tempted to commit Spiritual Adultery with the Devil, and if HE had sinned, HE would have divorced HIS church! Never to rise again! But JESUS…did-not SIN! Isn’t that good news? JESUS says, I love “Homosexuals and Lesbians” It’s “Homosexuality” that I hate. In other words, love the sinner, and hate any-sin that killed JESUS!!! So let JESUS… be the Center… of your Attractions… Today!!!
