Daily Devotional for Friday September 24, 2021
The death of a true servant of satan and, When a church becomes a stench in the nostrils of God!
DAILY DEVOTIONAL FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 24, 2021
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I know that it is Your desire that ALL come to repentance, that none be lost. Please give me a passion for souls. Help me to look at each person and never forget that they are created in Your image, that one day they will die, and they have an eternal soul. Take away any fear, any hesitancy, to share the hope we have in Jesus with those people You bring into my life. Let me never forget that without Jesus, their soul will be lost for all eternity and do my part to share with them how they can have everlasting life through faith in Jesus who died for their sins. It is in the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: A thoroughly evil son of satan masquerading as a man of God died recently. Episcopal Bishop of Newark John Shelby Spong, age 90, is almost certainly burning in the flames of hell and forever, the ultimate home of his father...satan! In 1989 Spong become the first openly gay male priest in the Episcopal Church and was one of those largely responsible for promoting the sinful LGBTQ agenda into the church world. Not surprising for this apostate, he also rejected Biblical truth by pushing for women clergy. Spong promoted the lie from hell that the Christian faith needed to adapt to a changing world in order to have a viable future. MY FRIEND, GOD’S WORD IS IMMUTABLE, IT DOESN’T CHANGE!!! Spong further rejected the Bible by stating the miracles recorded never really happened. YOU WONDER WHY MUCH OF THE CHURCH HAS BECOME A STENCH IN THE NOSTRILS OF GOD, A BRIDE THAT BECAME A HARLOT??? Like Adolph Hitler, if Spong accepted Jesus in the moment before he took his last breath he is forever in Heaven as all who come to Christ by faith will be. Realistically, like Hitler, there is little doubt Spong took his last breath and died in his sins thus being cast into everlasting darkness. In 2013 Spong said, “With all of my heart I think I’m a Christian. But I see a Christianity in the future that is so radically different from the Christianity I grew up with (Spong was raised in a Biblical Christian home and church) that I think there are people who will say the two are not connected, but I think they are connected.” No Mr. Spong, God’s Word, His Truth is immutable. You don’t get to make up your own “faith” based on your sinful choices. Sadly, you will be in eternal torment because like your father satan, you decided you wanted to be God!!!

(From the Liveprayer Daily Devotional Monday May 7, 2007)
In the summer of 2004, the story began to surface that then New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey was having an extra-marital affair, with another man! It later came out that McGreevey would spent his spare time trolling the truck stops of New Jersey picking up men to have sex with. In the wake of his sin coming to the light of day as sin eventually does, McGreevey's sin cost him the governorship, his marriage, and his relationship with his children. As I tell you often, our CHOICE to sin always costs a huge price.
McGreevey resurfaced in the news this week with the announcement that he was entering seminary to be an Episcopal priest, begging the question, how can someone who chooses to practice the sin of homosexuality become a pastor? Don't forget, the Episcopal Church is the same church that in 2003 elected Gene Robinson, a practicing homosexual, to become a Bishop in that church. This is also the church that is now led by Katharine Jefferts Schori who said last June that she believed homosexuality was no sin and homosexuals were created by God to love people of the same gender. She also believes that there are "many roads to God," the universalists lie from the pits of hell itself!!!
*** (from Daily Devotional 11/6/03) In light of the consecration of a practicing homosexual bishop (Gene Robinson) on November 2nd (2003), the Episcopal Church is declared ANATHEMA! This is the church in Pergamum spoken of in Revelation 2:12. I can only advise anyone in that church to LEAVE. God will not be mocked by a church more worried about offending sinful men than God Himself. God cannot and will not bless sin. The Episcopal Church is no better than the abominable Metropolitan Community Churches that promotes, glorifies, and takes pride in the sin of homosexuality.
Today, I renew my strong admonition to ANYONE who is part of the Episcopal Church to LEAVE IMMEDIATELY! This is no longer the church of Jesus Christ, but simply an empty shell, void of God's Spirit! I told you 42 months ago this church was "anathema," and based on the choosing of a woman who openly supports the sin of homosexuality to lead that church, how can anyone who loves the Lord stay and be part of such blasphemy? If your Episcopal church loves the Lord, then the ONLY choice is to break away and become independent. If you are part of an Episcopal church that remains under the leadership of this tool of satan, you have no choice but to leave immediately.
"Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them." (Romans 1:32)
Over the past 93 months of Liveprayer, I have refused to fall into the traps that so many national ministries have fallen into, and that is simply bashing those who have CHOSEN homosexuality as their sexual preference to incite the faithful to generate dollars. I have clearly stated in many past Devotionals that homosexuality is a sin, and that FACT is not even debatable. But today I MUST speak out on "churches" that support this deviant sexual choice, and ANY denomination or ministerial organization that would even consider having someone who has chosen this as their sexual preference to be ordained into their fellowship.
Let me say right up front, that the Bible clearly teaches there is NO division of sin. Sin is sin in God's eyes. THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT TO GOD, ALL SIN IS EQUAL. Those who commit the sin of homosexuality commit a sin no greater or no less than someone who chooses to commit the sin of gossiping. Sin is a choice! The two greatest lies the pro-homosexual community have put out are that 1) homosexuality is something that you are "born with," 2) 10% or more in our society are homosexual.
First, modern science has CLEARLY rejected and been unable to prove that, ANYONE is "born gay." IT IS A CHOICE!!!! People choose to engage in homosexual behavior. Like all sin, once you do it long enough, it may seem natural, but it is still a choice. You are born black or white, you are born with blue eyes or green eyes, taking off your pants to have sex is a CHOICE! Also, all legitimate studies done by the non-homosexual community clearly show that less then 1% of the population EVER engage in this type of deviant sexual act.
To have a "church" that accepts this sinful choice, to have a ministerial body that ordains people into the clergy who make this choice, you MUST reject the inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of God's Word. There is no difference in having a "church" that accepts those who make the choice to engage in homosexual behavior, as a "church" that would accept those who make the choice to commit adultery. How popular would THAT church be!!!
To have an institution represent God, to have people represent God, who have clearly REJECTED God, is an ABOMINATION!!! It makes me sick every time that I hear of a "church" that accepts homosexuality as an acceptable sexual choice, and even more sick when I hear of a denomination or ministerial organizations that accepts people who choose to engage in this type of sinful sexual behavior to be in spiritual leadership.
SUCH A "CHURCH" IS A STENCH IN THE NOSTRILS OF GOD!
Note: If your church or denomination is even debating such a non-debatable issue you should be very concerned. THERE IS NOTHING TO DEBATE!
Sadly, the voice of sin in our culture is virtually unopposed in trying to get people to accept that their view is correct. The Bible is our ultimate authority in ALL matters. The Bible clearly says that God condemns the choice of homosexual behavior as sin and is an abomination. You either believe God, or reject God. The choice is that simple.
Can those who choose to engage in this behavior go to Heaven? Of course!! IF THEY REPENT, ASK GOD'S FORGIVENESS, AND THROUGH HIS POWER TURN FROM THEIR SIN. Just like anyone who chooses to commit murder, or adultery, or engage in ANY sin can go to Heaven if they will repent, ask God's forgiveness, and through His power turn from their sin. It is your faith in Jesus Christ that saves you. But IF you choose Jesus as your Savior, how can you continue to engage in sinful activity? How can you blatantly sin against the God that you proclaim to love? Jesus said if you love Me you will obey Me!!!
I love you and care about you very much. Churches that tell people it is OK to engage in habitual, unrepentant sinful activity like homosexuality are an abomination to God. To have any denomination or ministerial organization accept those into the ministry who are living a life of blatant and unrepentant rebellion to God makes a mockery of the ministry. You can't cut out the parts of the Bible that you don't like. Once you start down that road, you have made yourself God.
However, we live in a free society. If people who have chosen to engage in homosexual activity want to have their own church, they have every right to. Just like those who worship satan can have their own church. As those who follow Christ, we have a responsibility to pray for them, for God to open their hearts to the truth of His Word, and to turn from their sin. Only God can change hearts, and for those who are in bondage to the sin of homosexuality we must pray for them to open their hearts and turn from their sin.
Until Jesus returns, we will always have those who choose a perverted form of sex with those of their own gender, just like we will always have those who choose to pervert sex by having it outside of the bonds of marriage. While we can never accept their choice since it is clearly against God's Word, we must pray for them, just like we must pray for everyone who is battling any sin in their life.
For those reading this who are currently fighting homosexuality, let me tell you that God has never stopped loving you, and is simply waiting for you to turn from your sin and come back to Him. We serve a God of deliverance from sin, a God of forgiveness, and a God of restoration. Millions have turned from the sin of homosexuality and found complete restoration and fulfillment in living a life according to God's plan. What He did for someone else, He can do for you! I pray today that you hear these words, and choose to find freedom from your sin today. That freedom is only a prayer away!
The church is exactly where men and women who struggle with the sin of homosexuality need to be. However, not in the pulpit leading the church, but in the pews seeking the Lord for His strength to find freedom from this sin they are in bondage to!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
