Jesus Loves Homosexuals & Lesbians

I lived with four guys in Bible College, three of which were former homosexuals.
Every human being must first realize that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ (Romans 8:38-39). Jesus purchased for us with His blood newness of life, which we must walk in daily (Romans 6:4). If you remain in willful sin and choose not to do so (Hebrews 12:1; 2:1), your liberty in Christ will be forfeited.
"If we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins but a fearful judgment and fiery indignation from the Lord, which shall devour us" (Hebrews 10:26-27). We who think the shed blood of Christ to be a common thing and take it for granted shall be worthy of a greater punishment (v. 29). Likewise the blessed Holy Spirit that liberates mankind from self and sin, if we after having been sanctified go back like a dog to its vomit, counting the Spirit an unholy thing, we become unworthy of God's grace.
Any child could look at two guys making out and know intuitively something isn't right with that picture. Nature itself teaches us about spiritual things. Gays naturally can't physically procreate (1Corinthians 11:14). Neither can they impart life.
Love is something God gives to all humanity unconditionally. His blessings however are conditional according to our obedience (Isaiah 1:19).
Homosexuals and lesbians version of love is a bit perverted as it doesn't rejoice in the truth (1Corinthians 13:6). To rejoice and yield to iniquity opens the door for demonic activity.
When we forget the counsel of God's Word and lust exceedingly, eventually God Himself will turn us over to our own lusts and send leanness to our souls (Psalm 106:13-15). Many times people so crave and idolize their habitual sin, it becomes an idol and god unto them. Not retaining the holy most high God in their knowledge, their Creator gives them over to a reprobate mind to worship the creation and be defiled thereby (Romans 1:28).
The Bible mentions several demon spirits throughout the sacred text. Here are just a few demon spirits that work heavily to influence and enslave homosexuals and lesbians:
- a lying spirit (1 Kings 22:21-22)
- a spirit of perversion (Isaiah 19:14)
- a spirit of lust (James 4:5)
- a spirit of whoredom (Hosea 4:12; 5:4)
- a spirit of bondage (Romans 8:15)
Not willing to glorify God, preferring to make a vain show in the flesh, sexual perverts dishonor their own bodies and become increasingly vile. Since their foolish hearts are darkened and resistant to the truth, it is very difficult to set them free (Romans 1:20-24). Having changed the truth of God into a lie, they worship the creation rather than the Creator (v. 25).
The Bible mentions "gross darkness" (Isaiah 60:2) that can be "felt" (Exodus 10:21). No human spirit can lie to the Father of spirits above. The sinful, alienated, and isolated soul knows gross darkness that weighs down the heart within. Spiritual heaviness is a gruesome burden that only God above can lift and remove.
God repeatedly and graciously calls out to humanity, stretching out His hand. The loving heavenly Father is continually disregarded, His counsel rejected, and His rebukes not heeded by wayward souls. The end of these self-righteous souls is calamity, fear, desolation, and destruction (Proverbs 1:24-26).
It seems many people who dive head first into perversion eventually become bi-sexual and even resort to bestiality. This is how demons work. Sin opens to door to destruction taking you further than you want to go, keeping you longer than you want to stay, and costing you more than you want to pay.
I have compassion for those bound by all things - addictions, substance abuse, perversion, lust, homosexuality, nicotine, etc. I myself was a slave to sin, pornography, and lust until God opened the prison doors for me. Having been forgiven much, I love much! I now therefore as an anointed servant of Christ mightily arise and endeavor to set the captives free (Luke 4:18; Isaiah 61:1-3).
Basically in simplicity human beings have one of two choices. They can either live in the flesh or in the Spirit (Romans 8). What you think about all day long will reveal what governs you and in which direction you are headed (Romans 8:5). To be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace (v. 6).
All sexual sin and perversion can only be overcome by the power of the Holy Spirit within an individual (Romans 8:13). Nobody therefore should be judgmental about any sexual sin - lust, adultery, perversion, homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, etc. Were it not for the beloved Spirit of God, we would all be bound in some type of perversion and selfish distraction. The Holy Spirit liberates the soul and flesh making mankind whole (2 Corinthians 3:17). "It is not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord of hosts" that men are made free to fulfill their divine destiny (Zechariah 4:6).
Let us who think ourselves to be godly and spiritual be merciful. Jesus encouraged us all to show mercy, realizing that we will also at some point in time need mercy (Matthew 5:7). Don't be a judgmental Pharisee. Such an attitude will neither love humanity, nor set them free.
Like Jesus love everyone unconditionally. If in doubt error on the side of mercy and faith, hoping somehow sexual deviants would repent before breathing their last breath and come to Christ. Meanwhile love and live an exemplary life before them so as to attract them to their loving heavenly Father above. Abundant life is for whosoever will (John 10:10). Transformation can come to them in the twinkling of an eye when they are ready to embrace Christ, the cross, and welcome the blessed Holy Spirit.
Jesus said, "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Pray that you not enter into temptation" (Matthew 26:41). You can win this battle against the flesh as you live and daily develop your spirit to be strong within (Ephesians 3:16).
God is most gracious and forgiving to those who humbly acknowledge the error of their ways and repent. Today is the day of salvation for whosoever will. Humbly bow before God in heaven, ask for forgiveness, plead the blood of Jesus to cover your sins, and invite the Holy Spirit that raised Christ from the dead in your heart. When you do, you too can experience a brand new start!
Call me when you do, as I would like to rejoice with and help you on your spiritual journey.
