The message of this book is sent forth with the love of God out of a deep wish to help those who are currently undergoing the attack of the evil one, those who are being deceived by Satan to live contrary to the demands and commandments of God.
Victory in Jesus Christ is assured for every believer who comes in faith leaving behind worldly connections, evil associations, devilish interests, and satanic delusions and comforts.
Homosexuality has gained prominence today. Lesbians and gays are coming out of the closet in larger numbers to flaunt their pride in a lifestyle which is disdain to culture and condemned by God.
Gays are known and seen in sports, games, social events, the media, the arts, music, public service and private corporations, as well as in other ventures and endeavors. Being transgender is no longer noted in shame while bisexual would want the world to know who they are. Yet, God is not in them.
Man has always been disobedient to God, offensive to His way, and has learn to distrust Him right from the early days of creation. The thieves and the robbers, adultery and prostitution, blood-thirsty rulers as well as the very corrupt men and women in public service and private enterprises have always existed in the history of men and among the people of God. Between Abraham, Jacob, Judah, and David are many loads of sins which would have taken these patriarchs of faith into hell if not for the mercy of God and their embrace in repentance of the atoning sacrifice of The Lamb.
But man, proud man,
Drest in a little brief authority,
Most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
His glassy essence like an angry ape,
Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
As make the angels weep. (William Shakespeare).
Despite many challenges in his life, such as a very long delay in child bearing, one of the greatest trial and test of faith in mortal man was the sacrifice of his only child, Isaac, by Abraham to God. Despite the gravity of the test, the tenacity of the temptation, and the heaviness of the trial, Abraham did not flinch to remain faithful unto God and be true to His commandments.
What then has the homosexual suffered or the lesbian endured claiming to be “born this way” that he or she must live contrary to the commandment of God.
“For he looked for a city which hath foundations,
Whose builder and maker is God.
But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly:
Wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God:
For He hath prepared for them a city.” (Heb 11: 10, 16).
If heroes of faith could lay hold on blessings not yet manifested, but far away in reality;
if by faith such humans, men and women of faith could make expected blessings seem present while not yet manifested;
if deep within their mind, body, and soul, such believers could claim the blessings and rejoice in them while still strangers on earth,
then there is hope for the gay, the lesbian, and the homosexual, the transgender, and the bisexual, the adulterer, the fornicator, even the pedophilia, the thieves, the robber, the liar, and anyone living in sin, but with a willing heart for repentance, forsaking the pathway of sin, and who would embrace the way of the cross.
Just as faith and the love of God rescued and saved Rahab the harlot;
just as faith and love saved the promiscuous, adulterous, and flirtatious woman at the well;
just as faith and love saved the Jewish woman caught in adultery, found in the very act;
just as faith and love saved Mary Magdalene, out of whom seven strong devils were cast out;
just as faith and love of Christ touched Zacheaus the self-righteous Pharisee, Mathew the corrupt Publican at the customs, and a whole throng of believing Jews and gentiles, then there is great hope for anyone who had been deceived into living in homosexuality and other form of immorality and sinfulness, but could turn around unto Jesus Christ in genuine repentance and faith, looking only “unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith”.
Despite the meanness of their nature, the heinous crimes and evils and atrocities committed; despite the vileness of their sin and the depth of occultism and idolatry into which they had sank, God is not ashamed to be called their God, the God of all truly repenting sinner, who comes willingly, believing in the atoning blood of Christ at Calvary.
To such ones who would come out of homosexuality, lesbianism, and all sorts of immorality and queer lifestyle, believing in faith, desiring the heavenly inheritance, God is not ashamed to receive unto Himself the same way He took back and honor the prodigal son.
He will be their father, and they will become His people, living with Him throughout eternity, in joy and happiness, in a country where no one is gay.
“But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect.” (Heb 12: 22, 23).
As we go through this book and read or study of man, science, sexual orientation, character, religion, and Christianity, it is my heart-felt prayer that it will make every reader come out in the image of his or her creator.
“We all, with open face beholding as in a glass
the glory of the Lord,
are changed into the same image from glory to glory,
even as by the Spirit of the Lord”. Amen.
