We will be sharing “true stories,” the names of the characters involved will be changed, although, some of you that read us will identify them, because you were eye witnesses of these things. The intent is to educate, empower and help us see the Big Picture of Father’s plan that includes All.
“We also want to get some of you delivered from your uncomfortableness with such subjects, so that you can be better equipped to minister to a great harvest of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and strange looking people that’s about the shake up Christianity and other religions and yes Eye Am prophesying. The Lord would say to us, What you are seeing now paraded and flaunted in the media, and in politics is the counterfeit of what I Am about to do. What you are seeing is carefully planned to distort, confuse and frustrate My Grace. The evil ones seek to circumvent and pollute My plan, but it shall not be so. I do have a righteous remnant in that community that have not bowed to the corrupt system of lust, mockery and lasciviousness.
Eye hear the Spirit saying, this prophetic series on this subject is being released into the atmosphere at this specific time to prepare the way for some major things to happen “shortly” in the GLBT community. A sign to this will manifest possibly before the series is complete or shortly afterward. Eye am sensing something happening in the religious world that will be reported – it will be controversial. It feels like a major voice will have a change of heart and become more Inclusive or a righteous coming out.” Not getting more specific at this time-but it will make news.
Part 1 of this sensitive series was to encourage us all that our Identity should be Christ. We felt led to address this from a moreso “Kingdom Perspective.” We live in a society that enjoys cataloging, labeling and judging people based on outward appearances, behavior, gender, economic status, race, age and many other things. Many times we accept these labels and fulfill what is expected of us by those that do the labeling. None of that is the real you.
There is more to you than what’s between your legs, between your ears and what may or may not go on between the sheets. Your only hope is your Identity in Christ. It is this Identity or label, if you will, that can cause us to transcend the illusionary corruption of the Adamic nature. “In Adam’s identity, ALL die, but in Christ Identity, ALL are made alive.”
(In these short articles we hope to at least give some insight, encouragement, inspiration and look more deeply at what the Bible says. We may not provide the answers everyone is looking for or want to hear.)
I AM GAY – Story One
What exactly does that mean? I suppose for those that feel they have lived a deceitful life, repressed their feelings or was persecuted; it might be empowering to finally admit that. I remember the first time I heard those words from someone I knew.
We were about 15, my female cousin and I were very close and often dressed in matching colors growing up; people actually thought we were twins. There was a young man in love with her, he had just turned 18 and joined the military. He had plans to marry her when he was finish serving. The family was happy for her and impressed that this young respectable man was planning a future for her.
One day while we were hanging out talking, she confided in me that she really liked Porter, but she also liked girls, particularly adult women – “I am gay,” she said. She went into details describing her attraction as I sat laughing with nervousness and shock, wondering how a beautiful girl could be attracted to the type of women she described..and women.
My cousin had been brutally raped at the age of 12, while on the way to school on a dark winter morning. A pervert had been watching and knew she walked through the alley to take the short cut. He grabbed her, pulled her into the bushes at gun point. We got the news that her young body had been torn so badly, she would never be able to have children.
Her later adolescent years became troubled with drugs, alcohol, run-aways and suicide attempts – Yet Porter was in love her. By the time we were 17, we both had had our Christ encounter and plans were being made with Porter. She was afraid to tell him she could never have kids and she so loved kids and wanted them. Her spiritual walk became out of step, the club scene and beautiful girls had a stronger pull on her.
We must have been about 19 years old or close to it, the word of the LORD came to me one day and said, “Tell her not to go out this weekend, something very bad is going to happen if she does.” She was accustom to hearing the word of the LORD from me and she partially obeyed. She stayed home that Friday night. Saturday night her life would forever change. While at the Bar drinking, an older man made passes, she accepted.
He insisted on taking the short cut through an alley, it was that same alley she had been avoiding for 6 years. (She had started to carry a small caliber pistol.) Something happened, she had a flashback. The man, in her mind appeared as if he was the same one that had brutally raped her. At gun point, she made him strip, as was done to her and she blew him away…with the gun. She insisted this was the same man (no one knows, it could have been)- 2nd degree murder charges; she would spend many years locked up…But several years later, the word of the LORD came to me again while I was traveling in Canada, telling us something was overlooked and she would soon be released. I was yet in contact via mail, and related the message to her.
Miraculously, she was shortly released and wanted to serve God. She came to live with us in Seattle. She was not the same, she was very “butch,” her long wavy hair was cut short. As any fired up evangelical charismatic minister would do, I proceeded to call out the “gay demons.” We fasted and prayed with her, we took her to all the great healing deliverance ministers and they laid hands on her and greased her well with anointing oil. “Are you still gay,” I’d ignorantly ask. She was living a celibate life, but yet not attracted to men sexually.
We’d fasted many days, prayed, call out demons, released generational curses, repentance/forgiveness for all and she was yet gay. I was confused – At this point, I had seen many miracles in my ministry, exorcised many demons and seen a man brought back to life. Disappointed, I had to know, if this was a demon as I had been taught, “why could I not cast it out?” Why could the Church not cast it out, if it was a demon? Why are the Churches and pulpits filled with them, in disguised? I had many questions.
God moves in mysterious ways. She moved back to the South after awhile, disappointed that she would not have children as her sisters. I don’t know all the details, she ended up in a sexual encounter with a man – while she was in a relationship with her girlfriend. To everyone’s surprise, she got pregnant. Oopps, she did it again – the last I heard many years ago, there were about 3 kids, she and her girlfriend were raising. An old song comes to mind, “Something about God’s Grace.” God is Love. Of course religious people would condemn this lifestyle, kids out of wedlock, living with another woman. This just doesn’t fit into our theology of how God can work. God does not see as humans and is Sovereign. I can not help but to acknowledge and give God the glory for defying medical science and healing her body so she could have children. Maybe that was the affects of all that fasting and prayer…on some levels she was healed and vindicated for what had been taken from her as a child…but she was still gay.
We are not saying, that she developed sexual desires for women because she unconsciously hated men, due to her brutal rape. However, we can question the complexity of the human mind/brain and how trauma can trigger dormant genes in some people. Traumatic experiences can unleash a host of chemicals rushing through the body human, re-writing the DNA script and even changing sexual orientation. Or, maybe she was born this way?
One thing I have learn is to try not to negatively judge a person until I at least know their story. If it had not been for the grace of God…her story could be your story or worse.
THE SUPER DRAG QUEEN – Story Two
By this time, I’d had many paradigm shifts, thrown out a lot of useless theology that did not make sense, spent time listening to and counseling a number of gay people that felt they needed to “come out” to me. I could no longer preach/teach the judgment and condemnation I had, plus, my study and research would not support it. Love, tolerance, inclusion and grace; my messages were packaged with.
I was working in Seattle as a Social Worker, and was developing the Mystery School, where people assembled in my home every weekend. I was accustom to inviting my clients to the gatherings or Church. A middle-age Methodist couple came several times, they were engaged to be married. For some strange reason, after hearing me lead in Praise/Worship, they thought I could sing. So they invited my friend and I to sing at the wedding. My friend was really the one with the voice, she could sing.
Some time afterwards, I got a call from the newly married woman. Can you please talk with my son, he is suicidal. We set up a time, I took my Korean brother that rented a room in my house with me. We entered the home spoke to the platinum blonde, blue-eyed female sitting in the dimly lit living room and proceeded to the back. After some time, I asked, “when will your son be arriving?” She said, that’s him sitting in the living room. My friend and I looked at each other a bit bewildered and hesitant.
The young man, not dressed in drag, but jeans and shirt, had a slight built, about 5’4 maybe, very effeminate looking and a soft voice. He did not feel comfortable going to Church any more, but really wanted God. He could not endure the condemnation – plus, his step father, an ex school coach was making it almost impossible to visit his mother, sister and brother at home.
We took, “Ken” we’ll call him, to Church with us. He accepted Christ and was totally broken before the Lord. It was routine in those days that a group of people gather at my house to eat and fellowship after Church. Often we’d stop by the neighborhood Safeway, to pick up food and snacks on the way home. This was going to present a challenge. Ken did not have a car and I had to go into the store with this “dude that looked like a lady,” although, dress as a male.
Almost everyone knew me in the store, including the cashier – a German neighbor girl that my mom used to try to fix me up with after I had ended a failed 3 years relationship. My brother had dated her sister, so they knew our family well. The first time my scheme worked, I sent Ken on a wild goose chase looking for something; while I rushed through the Express Lane, so no one would see us together.
The next Sunday I was not so lucky, plus the Holy Spirit rebuked me, somewhere around the Party/Chips isle. “You preached tolerance and grace, but you are ashamed to be seen with your brother, for fear of what others might think…etc.” To make things worse, the Express Lane was very long – by the time I got to the counter, Ken appeared. OMG! My neighbor’s eyes looked back and forward between he and I. I interrupted her thought by saying, we just came from Church, Ken attends Church with us now, he has no vehicle, so we pick him up,… etc. As we walked out, I apologized to Ken for being ashamed of him, he accepted.
Several weeks later after one of our weekend home meetings that lasted long, Ken left the house, thinking he could catch the bus to get back home. It was too late to go to his parents home, plus, he felt he was no longer welcomed at his parents home-due to his jock Christian stepfather.
It was about 3-4 am, there was a knock on our door. My Korean brother and I both came out of our rooms at the same time, wondering who could it be. It was Ken, bloodied, bruised and crying – he said, “I did not have anywhere else to go.” Ken had made a very poor choice that night. He accepted a ride with about 3-4 guys that may have initially mistook him for a female. They did not take him home, they took him to a wooded area and repeated raped him, beat him and dragged him through the blackberry bushes. He had to walk quite a ways up a big hill to get to our house.
We washed him and cleaned him up, as one would a child, picking blackberry thorns out of his body almost until sunrise – I might add; weeping the whole time with him. He was too afraid and embarrassed to get the police involved.
In our home gathering, no one every told Ken he should cut his hair, try to ask more masculine or anything. We just manifested the love of God that covers a multitude of what some consider faults. Shortly after that incident, he showed up to one of the gatherings with a haircut, but the “dude still looked like a lady.” We agreed that someone would be responsible for taking him home from then on.
He later asked some of the sisters/ladies from our home gathering to come to his apartment and help him. They took out 8 Hefty bags of women clothing, lingerie, and sex toys to be put the garbage dump. No one told him to do this, we treated him with respect, as all the other people there. Ken had been a Super Drag Queen, well at least a Drag Queen. He had won many awards, trophies, for strutting his stuff in contests at the Gay Bars/Dance Clubs. (As the saying goes, “Don’t be a drag – just be a queen.” Ken was indeed a queen.)
Shortly after being filled with the Holy Spirit, we took him on the road with us to some of our conferences – he testified of God’s grace. Ken’s Identity was and is Christ. He yet had a sexual attraction to men, but he could no longer live a life of promiscuity and worldliness. He may have been born that way, but he is now born-again.
As the weekend gatherings grew, we went through a phase where lesbians, gays and a hermaphrodite was a regular part of the gatherings. The lessons I learned from these people are invaluable and humbling; allowing me to tap into a deeper level of Christ and His compassion to minister from. I suppose the gathering was what one might imagine heaven would be like, we had assembled from many nations and Indian tribes – From many professions and various criminal lifestyles and religions to worship Him without restraints.
NOT BORN THIS WAY vs BORN THIS WAY
Is it true that some people choose to engage in same sex sexual relations? Yes! Often because it is trendy or on a dare, but that does not make the person homosexual. Is it also true that some people choose to have sexual relations with the opposite sex? Yes! It is quite easy for a woman, but that does not necessarily mean she is heterosexual. I don’t believe that most gay people are choosing that lifestyle, nor do I think that most straight people are choosing their lifestyle. God simply did not create everyone with the same sexual desires.
There’s a big controversy in Christianity today, most would say, “People are not born gay, it is a demon or they chose that lifestyle. Furthermore, they will burn in hell forever and ever for loving the same sex.” We don’t have the time to go through all the Scriptures in these blogs. But the question remains, if it is a demon in every case, why can’t the Christians filled with power cast it out?
We are very much aware of the spirit-world and understand that 4th dimensional entities and others can possess, influence and harass humans. We are also aware of the Nephilim and their deeds, which would become another message for another day. So in short, I do believe that there are some people that choose to be a Try-sexual. These are people that choose to try various or any sexual experience (male, female, both, incest, animal, etc), maybe because it sounds sensational, it’s sensationalized in the mostly corrupt media or on a dare.
I also believe that some people, due to trauma or abuse from the opposite or same sex, might be drawn into a gay lifestyle. Females might be more likely open to this, if abused by a man.
Based on what Jesus taught, I will have to agree that people are usually born heterosexual, homosexual or somewhere in between. Do not confuse homo-eroticism, an infatuation, arousal or fling with the same sex as necessarily being born homosexual.
WHAT DID JESUS SAY?
Ok, this is where some of you might shut your computer off, delete me from your Book Mark/Favorites or rejoice in the bigness of the Creator’s All Inclusive Plan. Here’s a passage that most Christian ministers would not touch with a 10 foot pole, even if they knew the truth. Why? It’s called “fear of man,” choosing to be religiously correct, or to protect that false macho image (ego). To be fair, I am sure that many are clueless; as I once was, only teaching what I had been taught.
Matthew 19:3-12 – Speaks about marriage, the law of divorce and those born this way. We will only focus on the eunuch in this writing.
3 “The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? 4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. 9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, commits adultery: and whoso marries her which is put away doth commit adultery.
10 His disciples said unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. 11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. 12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.”
Jesus teaches about (3) types of eunuchs in this passage. The people of his time and the indigenous people of the Middle East and parts of Asia today yet understand what he meant. The definition of the word “eunuch” remains the same, especially in India and that region. Being a eunuch was considered to be a “gift” from God.
The Greek word used for eunuch is Eunouchos, it means, one who voluntarily abstains from marriage (celibacy), an emasculated man (castrated man), or one naturally incapacitated of marriage (sexual desire/lust for women) for the purpose of begetting children.
Let’s look at the different types of eunuchs mentioned in the Bible.
3) – Celibacy – Those who have made themselves Eunuchs for the Kingdom of heaven sake. This was and is considered a “high calling” and honor to be this type of eunuch. These are men (now a day women also) that have taken a vow of celibacy. They choose to live a monastic life and not reproduce their seed/expression in the earth. On a more mystical level, they choose to channel the Root Chakra energies (powerful creative sexual energies) up through the Crown Chakra; expecting to gain more enlightening experiences with Spirit. Everyone is not given this GIFT to be contented with celibacy, it is a gift. That’s why the Catholic church run into so many problems, they force celibacy on the men and women. Also, many start out filled with zeal, but later realize, they don’t have that gift. Thus, some end up becoming pedophiles.
2) –Castration – Those who were made so by men. Kings often castrated men working in the castle or palace to prevent them from having sexual relation with their harem. It was all about the seed, protecting the bloodline of the king. These eunuchs were also given a high place of honor and some men actually desired to be eunuchs in the kings court. (We are sure that not every eunuch in the king’s court was a castrated eunuch).
1) –Homosexual – Gay “For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb.” Matthew 19:12. “All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given…He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.” Matthew 19:11,12 Yep, Jesus knew His 21st Church would have a hard time with this one.
These men were also in charged of the harem, some were in charge of making the women beautiful; hair, nail, skin, fashion. (Things haven’t changed much with some eunuchs today – Who are the leaders in fashion, hair design, make overs, women’s beauty aids, project runway, etc – Is it not the eunuchs – gay men? Nothing’s new under the Sun.)
Everything is in the Word of God. We find that Jesus did address the Gay Issue and did clarify that some were born eunuch’s (incapable of being sexually compatible with the opposite sex in the tradition sense for marriage-sex and reproduction. Eunuch was a synonym for a gay man. The Hebrew word is saris).
In India and other parts of Asia, the eunuch’s are called the 3rd sex. They are highly honored and considered to be spiritual beings. In Asia, eunuchs seem to be more in tuned to their spirituality. People actually line up to be blessed by them, they are called on to sing and bless various events.
Can you imagine what might happen if more of the gay men and women of western culture would develop their spirituality? Based on Scripture, there seems to have been a special grace released for the eunuchs (gays), could this be why the adversary seeks to keep many trapped in the bondage of lust and a false identity? Could this be why there has been so much persecution against that community?
A GIFT OR CURSE
How many of you yet love Truth? Our intent is to educate, enlighten, empower and give people permission to Think. Does the Creator make mistakes? Is it not He who writes your DNA script, while you are yet in the womb, according to Psalms 139?
Over the years, we have used this plain truth of these Scriptures to set many people free from Guilt, Fear, and religious Condemnation. We have seen people brought back from the brink of suicide and suicide survivors embrace their script in life as a “gift from God” – instead of a curse, as religion and some of society teaches it.
Singleness, in the light of New Testament Scripture meant, one not married to the opposite sex. Apostle Paul called his status as a eunuch, a “gift from God.”
“But I speak this by permission, [and] not of commandment. For I wish that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God.” 1 Corinthians 7:6-7
Thank God that all men are not like Apostle Paul, our specie would have become extinct long ago. We are not attacking Apostle Paul, we are only stating what he said. Could it be that the supposed Gay 10% of our planet is the Creator’s built in population control mechanism?
DOES THE BIBLE CONTRADICT ITSELF?
I don’t think so, we must learn to connect the dots for it to make sense and realize literal meanings can also be relevant. Jesus clearly states that, “some were born this way” and it should be seen as a gift. Apostle Paul confirms, his life as a eunuch is a gift from God. (I am only saying what the word says).
Apostle Paul, a Rabbi, very well versed in the Torah would have known what the Scriptures in Leviticus and Deuteronomy says about homosexuality. Could there have been a different type of act called homosexuality? Is what we call homosexuality today the same as what translators translated accurately what the Bible calls it? Plus, Apostle Paul was very much aware of the 3 types of eunuchs; of which he was one. Would he totally go against what Jesus, the One that appeared to him on the Damascus Road had said? No! It does not make sense. Therefore, the Scripture in Romans 1:22-32, must have a deeper meaning than what we have time to share in this blog.
“Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
Apostle Paul seems to have lumped murders, pride, coveting, gossiping, anger, deceit and many other “sins” in along with sexual immorality; stating that all who practiced them were worthy of death.
Knowing the truth has the power to set us free. There is therefore now, no condemnation for those who have their Identity in Christ Jesus. However, with truth comes a greater responsibility. The realization of the truth that Jesus stated, “some were born this way (gay) from the womb” does not give one the freedom to become a male-whore. Just as most born heterosexual should not live their life after the lust of the flesh.
