How about just..... Saved! Sanctified! Justified! Freed from the bondage of sin!??!!?!!
All of this talk about going out into the world to minister to those who remain trapped in bondage of the sin you were once imprisoned by is just ridiculous. This is not the way. This is the way to remain connected to that very sin that brought you down. It's not obeying, it's revenge!! You aren't doing GOD a favor, you are merely avenging the sin itself.
Yes, it took me 7 years to realize that. Took me 7 years to see that I was not walking in HIS Will, in The Way in which HE commissioned me to. Oh JESUS! Please LORD, help them see that by remaining connected to that dark, deceptive, lewd and lascivious sin that they will never be totally Free from that spirit of perversion!
They're faced with it, stalked by it and battling it daily because they choose to remain connected by focusing their ministry on that very sin. Let it go. Let it go and let GOD!! Testimony is powerful, in Scripture it is compared to the Blood of JESUS, but testimony doesn't just mean what ya stepped out of, but what ya stepped into! Amen!!
I've focused on ex-gay, ex-trans ministry for 7 years, and guess what....... not one person is walking in Truth at this very moment. The few who remain Free from homosexuality have been misled by false teachers, preachers and doctrines. Thank YOU JESUS for pursuing me and keeping me!
Did JESUS tell HIS Disciples to go out and teach only those who remain trapped in the sin you were once guilty of?? No, HE said, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." (Matthew 28:19-20).
All nations means all people. Telling our testimony, means how when we were desolate, strung out, guilty and worthless that The Mighty Omnipotent GOD robed HIMSELF in flesh and came to this Earth as The Man, JESUS CHRIST, to take sin upon HIMSELF so that we could all be Free!!! And that Freedom is available to anyone! And everyone!
I pray for those who remain trapped, just by a different bondage. I pray for the ones who truly believe, or want to believe, that they are making a difference because people are giving them attention and praise for coming out of sin, and for standing against the very core of what is bringing this world down.
Oh I pray they understand that their testimonies could be so much stronger and mightier if they would only surrender completely and utterly to HIS Full Truth and let go of these damnable doctrines, false teachings and feel-good-ear-scratchin-ministries.
LORD, please remove their blinders to know YOUR Truth, YOUR Full Truth!!! Show them that offering encouragement to people is not leading them to YOUR Saving Faith! Testifying and stirring emotions is not setting the captives Free!
I've had many tell me how they were touched or moved by my testimony, and that in some way, it helped them to move on from the darkness of homosexuality or transgenderism. But it is not what brought them to JESUS!
In Love. <3
